Hi Edit

Hi there, welcome to the Wiki, good to have you on the team. Nice work on the Hydra article, but please be careful not to refer to a singular robot as "they"; the correct pronoun is "it". Other than that, great job; if you were to go back and fix the "they"s plus whatever other grammatical errors you can find, I would proudly make you the very first recipient of a badge from me. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 17:49, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

Hi as well, good work on Hydra. Helloher (Death is not my phone number) 18:53, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

Hydra Edit

TG and Helloher took care of the cleanup, but when you get a chance, take a look at it as an example. Since you did do most of the legwork on that article, I think you've earned this:

Hydra 7 This user was an excellent contributor to the Hydra article.

Proudly display it on your user page. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 20:17, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

Remeber, "it", not "they"Edit

I'm glad to see you're such an eager conributor, but please try to abide by our elements of style. Again, the pronoun you should be using to refer to a singular robot is "it" not "they". Thanks. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 15:59, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

AhEdit

I remember you, I emailed you about owning Storm Force these days. How're things going with that? Toon Ganondorf (t c) 20:40, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

BadgeEdit

Hello, I've noticed that you are providing excellent info about notable robots - good work and keep it up. Also, RA2 awarded you a badge for your work on Hydra, and you can show everybody by copying the code onto your user page. Here's the code: {{Userbox|Silver|#007BA7|border-color=black|[[File:Hydra 7.jpg|64px]]|info-color=black|'''This user was an excellent contributor to the [[Hydra]] article'''.}}{{clr}} Keep up the excellent work, Helloher. Helloher (Death is not my phone number) 21:11, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

Iron Maidens Edit

I appreciate your eagerness to contribute, but you write-up of the Iron Maidens needs some improvement to meet our standards, I would appreciate it if you would go through and take care of the following issues:

  • Run-on sentences
  • Improperly capitalized words
  • Slang terms like "swish" and "flick"
  • Too many sentences have "then" in the beginning
  • Single digit numbers that are not spelled out (

Those aren't the only things, but they are five of the most prevalent issues. If you want your editing skills to improve, you will take care of the cleanup yourself instead of waiting for someone else to do it. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 20:15, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

In addition to RA2's point, I really appreciate the effort you have been putting into creating new articles on the wiki and I think you are close to deserving an award for your troubles, but you do need to address these issues on your existing articles and articles you create in the future before I can award it to you. So get your articles up to scratch and you may have an award coming your way. Christophee (talk) 15:55, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
Please could you take a look at the edits I made to your Robot Wars Extreme: Series 2/University Challenge article and bear them in mind when you're creating new pages in the future. Your main problem is that your sentences are too long with too many commas where there should really be full stops. This makes them very hard to follow at times. Also make sure you don't use capital letters where they are not necessary and make sure you spell out numbers below 10, rather than just using the digit. Thank you very much. Christophee (talk) 19:41, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Feedback Edit

Instead of starting new articles, I would appreciate if you went back and revised the ones you have already written. The list of corrections I gave you is by no means exhaustive; it will take more than full stops to fix them. Go back and re-read each passage to yourself, taking note of anything that just doesn't sound right. You still need to work on avoiding run-on sentences, and you're using too many obscure reference nouns like "The South African machine" or "The robot from Open University". I noticed that you haven't gone back and done any major revisions like I asked you to before. We appreciate your hard work, but please understand that quality is much more important than volume. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 20:12, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Award Edit

Your new articles still need a little bit of work (please take notice of the suggestions RA2 and I have given you before), but they are definitely improving and I think you deserve this award for the good work you have done so far. You may display it on your userpage if you so wish. Congratulations. Christophee (talk) 23:59, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

{{Pinball Warrior|Christophee (talk)}

Hi Liam. As per a discussion between several of the admin staff, we've chosen to rescind your award. You can read the reasoning why on Christophee's talk page. However, your efforts have not gone unnoticed, so we'll award you this smaller one now. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 08:09, December 28, 2009 (UTC)

64px This user was an excellent contributor to the Commonwealth Carnage article.

Philipper Edit

Good work adding the Extreme summaries to the Philipper article. Here is a badge for your efforts.

Philiper 2 This user was an excellent contributor to the Philipper article.


In future though, please could you make sure that you spell Philipper correctly (one 'l', two 'p's). Christophee (talk) 19:14, January 30, 2010 (UTC)

Userboxes Edit

Nice to see you making some userboxes. Just Fyi, use "64px" instead of "thumb" to make the pic the right size. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 19:18, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

The image of Snake Bite was deleted, because a picture of it already exists. You can put their picture of it into your userboxes.--Deadbotuliza (talk) 19:11, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yourself Edit

Liam, we're really getting sick of you mentioning yourself in articles. The Team Bud and Storm Force articles are relevant, but you edited Thor, who you have no relevance for. Please stop inserting information on yourself into articles. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 05:46, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Final chance Edit

Listen Liam (as pointless as that statement is).

You're on your final chance. You've demonstrated that you pay no attention to the rest of the community by creating useless Team pages. Add the fact that you keep adding information to Team Roaming Robots and other worthless information about Team Bud and yourself, and then the point where you have not once responded to any criticism, feedback, or questions, you've branded yourself an expendable user. If you do not respond to this comment on your talk page, I will block you. TG (t c) 23:37, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

Robotwarsmad Edit

You're Robot Warsmad from youtube aren't you?--Deadbotuliza (talk) 20:13, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

Roaming robots Edit

I'm just wondering: what are the regulations on walkers at Roaming Robots events? BuggyBash666 :D 20:32, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I think that they are the same as on Robot Wars, but robots that use rollers or shuffling systems are not classified as walkers which is all I know of LiamBryant 13:44, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

hi liambryant

do you know if there a robot for sell.

i'm from Australia from Bryce Edward Thomas--Bulldogbreed 02:05, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know if there are any robots on for sale, sorry. LiamBryant

Wiki WarsEdit

Hey there. As you might be aware, we've restarted thea arena forum and now we are restarting Wiki Wars 2 for the wiki's fourth anniversery celebrations. Anyone with over 150 mainspace and file edits can enter. If you'd like to join us, please visit Forum:Robot Arena 2 - Robot Wars Wiki (Series 2) and let us know which robot you'd like. Matt(Talk) 06:46, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Bureaucrat electionEdit

Dear Wikian. The bureaucrat election voting is now open. The candidates are Christophee and RA2. You may read their submissions here - Robot Wars Wiki:Requests for Promotion.

Please submit your vote either

Thank you for contributing. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 22:25, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Robot Wars 2013 Edit

John Findlay said himself that the new Robot Wars branding started at the Portsmouth event in March, rather than the Barnsley event in February. Obviously you are free to display it however you like on your user page, but we regard Portsmouth as the first event on the wiki. I'm just letting you know in case you thought we forgot the Barnsley event. Christophee (talk) 13:04, April 20, 2013 (UTC)

Right OK, no problem. Will take the Barnsley event off. LiamBryant

Based on what it says on the new Robot Wars website, it seems you were right all along about the first event being in Barnsley, and that has now been reflected on the wiki. With this in mind, I am going to restore the Barnsley section to your results table. Hopefully you don't mind. Christophee (talk) 18:35, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

ArenaEdit

Can somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Liam now has enough edits to compete in the Arena. Jimlaad43(talk) 22:17, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

No, sorry, he only has 374 main and Filespace edits RelicRaider (talk) 06:55, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Then he can, the quota has dropped to 300. Jimlaad43(talk) 07:30, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Compete in the arena? What arena? LiamBryant

The wiki's arena. We take part in tournaments there...it's pretty much a "which robot do you think would win" sort of thing...I've probably butchered that explanation, but hopefully that'll make a good start. CrashBash (talk) 12:02, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Ah I see, yeah I think I might have seen those fantasy battles for tournaments up before. You got got any on the go just now? Should be fun having my say in them. User:LiamBryant
Forum:Fantasy Audited War 2 Heat C, you can vote in the Hypno-Disc vs Black Hole battle at the bottom of the page. Just make sure you sign your vote with four tildes (~~~~). Have a look at how everyone else wrote their votes, and use the preview button to make sure you've got it right. Jimlaad43(talk) 12:41, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah sorry, I forgot that the quota dropped. RelicRaider (talk) 14:46, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Weird Alice Team Edit

I saw the details of Weird Alice in your "Robot Wars Live Events Competitors" section. I just wanted to ask, is the team listed the same team that originally built the robot and failed to qualify with it, or has it been sold since Robot Wars?

I just thought I'd ask to see if I could update the page. Thank you. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 21:46, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Hiya, The team that built Weird Alice that failed to qualify are still fighting with Weird Malice as listed in the competitors section. Liam Bryant (talk) 22:00, April 13, 2015 (UTC)


Interesting images Edit

Those images you've uploaded recently are amazing where did you find the images? Did you ask other roboteers as yourself? Or did you take the photos? Great uploads! Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 14:12, October 29, 2015 (UTC)

Hiya, glad you like the pictures. Those images that I recently uploaded are from the old forgotten Robot Crusade website. The website is archived and can be found here> http://web.archive.org/web/20061016162546/http://www.robotcrusade.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=listarticles&secid=10 LiamBryant (talk) 22:50, 0ctober 29, 2015 (UTC)


Gloucester 2015 Edit

So Liam will you be at Gloucester 2015 live event on the weekend? I'll be there on Sunday with VIP pass (and probably a camera, if they're allowed to take photos of the robots) Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:15, November 6, 2015 (UTC)

No I won't be I'm afraid as its too far south for me, but I hope you enjoy yourself there and yeah you're allowed to take photos. LiamBryant (talk) 23:24, November 6, 2015 (UTC)


2016 Edit

I know Storm 2, Dantomkia, Chompalot, Barberous, Big Nipper, Ripper and Thor have been confirmed to attempt to enter the new series but do you know of any other machines that'll enter? Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:24, January 15, 2016 (UTC)

More on that, have you any interest in applying for the show with Storm Force? Or will you apply as part of Team Bud? ToastUltimatum 15:16, January 16, 2016 (UTC)
Hiya, as much as I would like get Storm Force up and running I wouldn't have enough time plus it is about 15 years old so it wouldn't survive against the more upgraded robots of today. Maybe the next series. I am however trying to see if I can get tickets to see the recording. Liam Bryant 22:18, January 16th 2016 (UTC)

Geoff Smith Featherweight Edit

Forwarding a question from John Findlay, Geoff Smith of Scorpion used to compete with a 6WD featherweight, entering the Sumo at the UK Robotic Games. It was red, and covered in LED's. The name was along the lines of Phoenix, Phantom etc, but it's neither Pillow Torque nor Pain in the Asp. Does that ring a bell? A name, and a picture if possible, would be grand if it seems familiar. ToastUltimatum 04:23, July 28, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry I don't know about Geoff's featherweight. The only ones I've heard of that were in his possession are Pillow Torque, Pain In The Asp & Scorpion EVilution. Liam Bryant (talk) 09:27, July 28, 2016 (UTC)

Images Permission Edit

Thanks for all the work with updating the live events sections of Robot Wars newcomers, although I do have to pass on the message that this wiki has received a lot of flack as of late for not asking permission before taking roboteers' images. If you could try to gain permission before uploading an image, that would help a lot. ToastUltimatum 15:55, July 29, 2016 (UTC)

OK, I never knew about this rule. Have any roboteers been in touch about their images being used? Liam Bryant (talk) 01:27, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
There hadn't been a particular example, but roboteers were collectively complaining on Facebook. An example did crop up later with some drama concerning an image of antweight SMIDSY, even though that's an image we actually did ask for. ToastUltimatum 06:22, July 30, 2016 (UTC)


Team Terror Turtle Edit

Hey i was editing the page for practice! Thanks for helping tho! Dylanr21 (talk) 16:02, August 2, 2016 (UTC)

Don't mention it! Liam Bryant (talk) 18:13, August 2, 2016 (UTC)

Pilot Edit

Where did you find that amazing Dead Metal vs Merlin image? Are there more?Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 14:26, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Hiya, I got it from the Robochallenge Facebook page, it's the only one I've found from what I assume was the pilot (as Merlin was in the shot) on the internet. Hope this helps! Liam Bryant (talk) 17:45, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Congrats Edit

Congrats on getting a shoutout from Matt Maxham on Inside the Bot ;) [1] ToastUltimatum 22:01, January 11, 2017 (UTC)

That's great cheers for posting that up, nice to here it a 37:02 :) Liam Bryant (talk) 22:06, January 15, 2017 (UTC)

Userpages Edit

When you make a new page about Bryant Wars, please remember to insert User: in the title of the page at the start, otherwise it ends up as a mainspace article that we have to move. These pages belong in the userspace. Thanks. TOAST 14:31, September 8, 2017 (UTC)

OK no problem. Liam Bryant (talk) 01:51, September 9, 2017 (UTC)

Series 10 Sweepstake Edit

Hi Liam,

Just to let you know that the Series 10 Sweepstake will be starting soon, now that we are getting closer to the first airings of the new series. Considering that you took part in the previous sweepstake, would you be interested in signing up for this one? VulcansHowl 20:06, October 3, 2017 (UTC)

Yes please, count me in. Liam Bryant (talk) 09:39, October 4, 2017 (UTC)
Eruption 10 This user won the Robot Wars Series 10 Sweepstake with Eruption
Congratulations, you are the third sweepstake winner of the main series! SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 20:02, December 4, 2017 (UTC)
Awesome!!!!! Liam Bryant (talk) 22:17, December 4, 2017 (UTC)
Congrats, Liam. CrashBash (talk) 22:30, December 4, 2017 (UTC)

Live Event timeline Edit

Currently, I'm working on a Canon and Legends timeline for Robot Wars (https://robotwars.fandom.com/wiki/User:Diotoir_the_son_of_nemesis/_Canon_and_%22Legends%22 ). I was curious about the events concerning Roaming Robots and other major Live Events and wanted to know when they took place and what they were (For example the winter tours, the UK Championships, featherweight World Championships etc.) and maybe the Champions of each event? Hoping you could help, I will try to use the archive and the Roaming Robots wiki for some help. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 17:11, January 11, 2020 (UTC)

Hi I believe the FRA forum has information on past champions. There are chats regarding old events that date back to about 2003 on the forum page I think> www.fightingrobots.co.uk/forum and I've also done a few event pages on the Ultimate Robot Archive wiki regarding the UK Championships and Winter Tours. Liam Bryant (talk) 16:55, January 13, 2020 (UTC)
Yeah it's mainly the early ones I'm struggling with, after around 2006 it's fine. Thanks for the link I'll check it out.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 17:35, January 13, 2020 (UTC)
The 2004 & 2005 Winter Tours have their own pages here> https://ultimate-robot-archive.fandom.com/wiki/Roaming_Robots_-_Winter_Tour_2004 & also here> https://ultimate-robot-archive.fandom.com/wiki/Roaming_Robots_-_Winter_Tour_2005 Hope this helps. Liam Bryant (talk) 18:18, January 13, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Just need to know about 2003 and I should be completely fine :) Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:21, January 13, 2020 (UTC)
