Brandondorf9999

Brandondorf9999 drives me crazy. He comes on at totally random, changes a bunch of things with what he thinks is better, and then leaves! Especially annoying is his weird desire to change problem images with what he thinks is "better". Most recently is the Super Mario Sunshine, but there are tons more in his history. His weird enjoyment of being zoomed out is bizzare, and though he's totally welcome to use that if he wants to, changing problem images to his preferences is not cool!

It got so bad he was nearly banned once, so he disappeared, and came back months later and did it again! Then he disappeared and came back yet again this month and did it some more!

Ugh! We've already tried communicating, so I don't know what to do. I think we need to consider banning. I don't know where to place this discussion so I'm hosting it here, we can move it wherever we need to. - MaJoR (talk) 04:45, 18 March 2015 (CET)

Ok, well, even as I was working on this, he did it to two more mario sunshine images! So I blocked him. I set it to two weeks, but we should discuss the length here. - MaJoR (talk) 04:56, 18 March 2015 (CET)
Agreed that user has a history of problematic image edits, and that it's not clear his few valid submissions merit dealing with all the problem ones. No problem with the pre-existing ban, and would be OK with a longer one.Kolano (talk) 06:08, 18 March 2015 (CET)
That's stupid, he's breaking our conventions again, I also agree increasing ban time, to at least one month or more. If the same occur again, perma-ban is what I vote for, seen that's the 3rd time we're having problems with his edits. - Jhonn (talk)
I changed the ban to one month. That works for me. I guess all that's left now is the question of what to do about those weird zoomed out screenshots... - MaJoR (talk) 08:47, 18 March 2015 (CET)
Well, I vote for reverting them when possible and either remove or get proper versions of the new ones he uploaded. If it's just Super Mario Sunshine or another game that I own, I can help with that... - Jhonn (talk)
I think MaJoR needs to be ok with the FOV code and stop being against it. So I think it's better if Jhonn changes his mind of opposing visual enhancement codes.--Brandondorf9999 (talk) 00:27, 16 July 2015 (CEST)
All of the admins are unified on this, so that's not likely to happen. We've decided to allow for a limited subset of AR codes, which the arbitrary FOV codes don't fall into. There are plenty of sites devoted to AR codes, which are probably better suited for such. Kolano (talk) 02:09, 16 July 2015 (CEST)
How about demote Jhonn from his adminship status and make the majority for the codes to never be against.--Brandondorf9999 (talk) 07:45, 16 July 2015 (CEST)
All of us admins came to the decision, not just Jhonn. We are in agreement. - MaJoR (talk) 08:12, 16 July 2015 (CEST)
But it should be turned around since there's numerous people that want to use FOV codes for their game when emulating, so what's the point of no tied FOV codes here even though those of widescreen and others aren't intended by their developers? Maybe it could produce motion sickness?--Brandondorf9999 (talk) 08:15, 16 July 2015 (CEST)
I edited his talk page for my two cents on the matter since he did revert my better images to his ugly FOV images (I did change them back though). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 21:14, 8 September 2015 (CEST)

Deleted Redirects

I didn't just create those redirects for the sake of it. The two you deleted are the names of games from some other region. If you think they are too generic, should we have a disambiguation edited into the page? Bust-A-Move and Bass Fishing Wii, here's the proof I have that the pages need to exist in some capacity here on Dolphin Wiki: here and here respectively. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 21:56, 26 April 2015 (CEST)

Never mind. Kolano reinstated the redirects. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 10:29, 27 April 2015 (CEST)

Projection for 2D

I'd like to know how did he get the projection things to popup on emulation which show the text and the values while using the debug feature? I'm looking for a way to edit the 2D HUD positions by changing the code values more faster without having to go through a lot of codes to find that.

EDIT: I've got it. These must be 3f000000 patterns.--Brandondorf9999 (talk) 03:17, 28 July 2015 (CEST)

Database errors

Recently I noticed a high increase in database errors across the wiki (generally when comparing page revisions). Could you please bring it to whoever is currently maintaining our web servers? (I would say delroth but AFAIK he's not working with the website infrastructure anymore -- perhaps Parlane?). By the way, that's the message that keeps appearing when the errors occurs:

Notice: Uncommitted DB writes (transaction from DatabaseBase::query (LCStoreDB::get)). in /home/dolphin-emu/apps/wiki/includes/db/Database.php on line 4362
I've noticed it too... They'll need to know ways to reproduce the errors in order for it to be really fixable. If you can find something that's easy to reproduce that would go a long way to helping get it fixed! - MaJoR (talk) 04:12, 11 November 2015 (CET)
I've seen them as well. Parlane was generally notified about them a few weeks back via email, but I couldn't reproduce the specific error at the time so I was unable to provide much detail. Kolano (talk) 04:56, 11 November 2015 (CET)
Comparing pages is an easy way to bring that issue (like, try comparing the current version of a page with and older edit, with intermediate edits between the chosen versions). It's not always reproducible but it's easy to trigger the error by doing that. - Jhonn (talk)
Okay, this issue is getting serious, it's appearing very often now and I actually discovered that Special:ReplaceText is totally broken; I don't know when (nor why) but right now, any replacement you try to make with Special:ReplaceText will throw this database error, as far as I tested the replacement options doesn't matter at all, any kind of replacement will throw that error when you confirm the operation. Shouldn't we contact Parlane or delroth again? - Jhonn (talk) 04:53, 30 November 2015 (CET)
Absolutely! Talk to matt_p and/or delroth about it, just make sure it is reproduceable. When I sent matt_p something it was fine for him. :( - MaJoR (talk) 08:37, 30 November 2015 (CET)
