Hello Hunterj, I just noticed that the Sly Cooper Wiki is listed in the Ratchet & Clank wiki:WikiNode. Since the Sly Cooper Wiki is on there, I was wondering if the SC Wiki needs to do anything to adequately represent the R&C Wiki. Thanks. Shrev64 (Talk||Contribs)

Tin Giant Picture
I took a picture of the Tin Giant logo but I don't know what I should put in the info. Could you help me?
Ok, i think I got it, but can you check it? This is the first time I've uploaded a photo here myself (you gave me the info I needed for the Paradox EER photos last time). Here it is:
- File:Tin Giant logo - Full Frontal Assault.jpg
Ok, I think I got it. I put that it was from Full Frontal Assault, and put that it was a game screenshot. Is it good now?
Awesome! I just put it in the Tin Giant page. I hope it looks good!
I edited your artical on Ratchet and you asked me for sources. I'm new here so I apologize for any misunderstandings. My sorces are more from the games themselves. Ratchet's age was said in Full Frontal Assult twards the very middle after meeting, whatever that villans name is. Ratchet had said it himself he was 15. My height source was actually me being a total math nerd. On another site it contained Qwark's height and the way Ratchet was presented face to face with Qwark, he appeared a little over half his height.
Two more questions about the template...if something was mentioned in a game, and then actually appeared in a later game, should I add the template to the game it was first mentioned in, the one it actually appeared in, or just not add the template at all? Second, if something's first appearance was the original game, should I add the template? I'm just wondering because it would be inherently obvious that the original game was its first appearance. Thanks in advance. Stars and Stripes (talk) 03:29, July 26, 2013 (UTC)

I've seen that was moderately trival mentioned in Articles Pete and Slag, they have a different name in a foreign version of the game. I play the games currently in English, and I also noticed something similar. On Fastoon Ratchet gets a message from Walter Qwarkowski yes. In the German version, it was Stefan Qwarkonopolus. The pirate, who is with you Puffy Pants Wallis, was renamed in our Frumpus Norvis. Grease Palms McGee called us fat finger Joe.
Is "Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters" a spin-off? I think it's part of the main story, plus if you look at the cover of "Ratchet: Deadlocked" and "Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters"'s covers, Deadlocked's says "4th" and SM says "5" (also, I'm not trying to be rude, it's just something I noticed):
- Oh, and if you look here, it says it's part of the main story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratchet_%26_Clank

Re: Images (again)
Hey there, you're welcome! I still have more images to share here, but it takes me a while because I'm a busy with art related stuff almost everyday. But yeah, the Terraklon and Argonoid renders are scanned from the R&C 2010 Calendar (oddly enough!) I just fixed them up and made them into png's. And yes, the "Terraklon.png" does need to be renamed to Argonoid.png, I just wasnt sure how to without reuploading (since I cant delete it).
I'll find more images as I go along, I think I'm done posting all the Deadlocked weapon renders now, I also have some Secret Agent Clank ones but they're not transparent, so it's a bit annoying to fix those renders up. (they're .tiff files...)
And you're welcome! I look forward to getting more R&C stuff posted here, especially once Nexus is out!
Hi, you posted this message on my talk page: Yes it was those images and some whitespace which I've sorted now! Probably will need archiving soon. I think you posted it to the wrong user. I let you know to post it to the user you wanted to SolanaBogonPolaris (talk) 16:38, August 16, 2013 (UTC)

Something I Noticed
I just noticed something. I looked at the Daxx Beast and Crate-Chucking Ape pages and the IGN Pre-release video, and I noticed that they were the same creature. If you look closely at the Daxx Beast image and the video, they look similar if not the same, and in the Daxx Beast article, it said it would throw crates and the Spike Shell Creature at the player, just like the Crate-Chucking Ape. With that in mind, should we merge the two pages together? Ratchet941 (talk) 20:27, August 18, 2013 (UTC)Ratchet941
I created a new template titled "Title Issues," which are added to pages with titles that are called into question or simply have a wrong spelling (or possibly a wrong spelling). I'm also considering creating another template that is similar to the FA Update template and the Stub template, except it warns that content is missing because it hasn't fully come out yet. For example, Vendra Prog's page would have one of this template since all information about her is simply not public yet for it to be added on yet. What do you think?
No Offense 2:35 PM August 19, 2013 (UTC)
Oh Ok. I think I could get a higher quality one. Also, it was called the Crate-Chucking Ape in the Insomniac Museum. Daxx Beast sounds better, but I think we should put that it was called the Crate-Chucking Ape in the Museum. Ratchet941 (talk) 23:41, August 21, 2013 (UTC)Ratchet941
Re: User of the month
Wow really? That's so kind of you, thanks a lot! I've still got more to share, just trying to do whatever I can during my free days off work. I also want to add all the FFA skins but I haven't purchased them all (and I don't really want to! heh) but I'll do what I can. Thanks again :-D
Hey, those images you mentioned are all from Ratchet & Clank 3, in the Concept Art menu (when you unlock them) and the render of Robo-Skidd is just from a screenshot I took from the HD port - but I cut out the background to make it more tidy. So yeah, they're just screenshots from R&C3 HD. That's why I just added to them that they're video game screenshots (in the sources)
So, I found gameplay of Ratchet and Clank Into the Nexus, and breifly, this screenshot was shown on Ratchet's mini map. It gives details about Yerek and the Zerkov Sector. I put it under the Yerek wiki page. (Nchlsdmn (talk) 12:10, August 26, 2013 (UTC))

Re: Featured User
Thanks so much for the feature! Much appreciated :D I'll definitely try and get more images here as I go. Im also prepared to capture stuff from Into the Nexus when it comes out.
Ive also been meaning to ask. How do you guys go about information that's only told to you by email? You see, Greg Baldwin told me something very interesting about Ace's developement (because he designed the character himself) but it isn't mentioned anywhere else, since he's quite obscure compared with the other characters. Would I just have to not share that at all? I guess some people would think I'm lying anyway, but yeah. I thought I'd ask. I'm not the type to spread rumours and lies around though, since I have quite a reputation. Especially when it involves my fav characters.
Anyway, Ive been meaning to do some Deadlocked HD screenshots of stuff, since there's a big lack of enemy images. But the game is pretty buggy and I dont enjoy playing it. But I'll see what I can do. Ive also been playing a Beta version of R&C3, so I might add some info about that when I get around to it.
Hey no probs! I actually tried to play Deadlocked HD last night and guess what? It crashes the PS3 within the first few minutes of playing. And this is why I dislike playing it! ha ha. But I'll still try and get good screenshots if I can manage to get through.
As for the Email sources... I'll think about getting a screen capture. I haven't actually told the public about what Greg said (besides a few close friends). He didn't say a whole lot to be honest, and there's even a typo. But it is pretty suprising :) I'll prepare myself to post up the info when ready. I was thinking about doing a bit of a 'rehaul' on Ace's article anyway, like mixing in some of the images into the article and such. I'm not the best at writing, but I'll see what I can do. I do respect canon information a lot! =P
Hmm... the Ace article was already featured at some point. I swear I remember seeing it featured a couple years back... anyway. I'm quite busy in real-life and that's why I don't often have the time to dedicate to editing over here (besides quickly posting up images). I don't really play games too often neither, since I get 3 days a week where I can do so.
And also, I've been doing some 'proper' research into figuring out the 'actual' heights of Vox, Ace and a few other characters (because I need to know for when I draw these characters together). I used the cutscene with Vox & Ratchet; and since we already know Ratchet's official height - I now know Vox's height too. As well as when I compared Vox to Ace. I guess I should go and fix those heights mentioned on their articles because they're 'quite off' from what I found :-) I also checked Angela's height, and 6.3 feet is correct. I'm just a bit of a freak when it comes to these bits of info, because I like to be accurate with what I know about characters. I might work out other characters, but only if it's possible! (it's impossible if there's no characters around them to compare to each other)
Oh and also, Nefarious and Qwark's heights are mentioned in the official All 4 One guide, but I'm unsure if they're canon...? Although I know Qwark is exactly twice the height of Ratchet. But yeah, let me know what you think of that.
And that is why I wanted to 'revamp' the Ace Hardlight article a bit! Since I thought it always looked too small for a featured article. I'll also remove the 'height' from his bio... to be honest, I think I added that almost 3 years ago. Or somebody who knows me anyway (at least it said 'over 6.3 feet', rather than 'exactly') but yeah I might place it into Behind the Scenes but not definitely since it wasn't mentioned by an Insomniac.
Also, I'll add the All 4 One heights then. I just have to go find the guidebook (I'm sure it said Nefarious was 6.6 feet, Qwark 10 feet or something) and I'll get little scans to be sure. It is tricky to get heights from characters, because in some cutscenes (in-game, and bossfights) the models do get resized. LurkingLeanne (talk) 22:30, September 2, 2013 (UTC)
Hi Hunterj. First of all, nice to meet you, and I want to tell you that you're making an awesome work in this wiki. Sorry for my English if I write something wrong, I'm from Spain, and this is what I want to talk about: I'm making many pages in our wiki (Ratchet & Clank Wiki en Español) and this message is just to make you know that I will edit the section of "In other languages", to leave a mark of our work. So as we make more pages I will come here to link your page with ours, in order to make this fantastic world which is Ratchet & Clank bigger and more connected.
Ace article & Courtney Gears
Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I'm making good progress with the new version of the Ace Hardlight article. I'm editing it on the computer (not online) so that I can get you to 'review' it before I replace the article and make a fool of myself (heh). Do you have an email or even a Skype account? I could show on there instead before I replace the existing article here. The article isn't too giant or overdetailed too, me thinks. And it does retain a lot of the text that's already there, just expanded or worded differently. And the trivia is shorter, and Ive added more stuff (personality, abilities, behind the scenes, etc)
And also, I've already expressed my disagreements with the Courtney Gears article and how people think that the Casino Owner is the same character as Gears. Unfortunately I'm not able to find any proof online (like screenshots, videos) that people claim them to be the same character. And I also don't own the game anymore, so I cant get the images myself. Some say that in the HIG Treehouse there's a photo that states this, but there's nothing of that found online. I think that somebody needs to get a screenshot or something to prove this. Or even just check the voice credits and see if 'Courtney Gears' is even there (I think she may have the same voice actress though). I just really doubt they're the same, even if HIG may have said so. Because their character designs are completely different, as well as personality and role. And also, Secret Agent Clank isn't actually canon to the main R&C series anyway. Just my 2 cents.
Edit: Okay, I asked a friend (KBABZ) if he could get a screenshot, since he's finished the game - and he did! Take a look for yourself. I think this clears up the confusion now ;D
Ah I see, well the thing is, is that I'm actually doing a Microsoft wordfile first. Since I wanted you to overlook the text and then if it's alright, I'll just add it to the article (and also add the appropriate images for each part of the article) since I'll remove that big as image gallery at the bottom! But I'll see if I can use the email form whenever it's ready.
Only wanted you to overlook the text first in particular, because I get a bit paranoid of my writing skills :-)
Anyhow, glad I could help with the Casino Owner/Courtney Gears issue! It was bothering me, so I just had to get to the bottom of it ;-) I'll find more info for other things as I go, since I have so much on here that I dont think I've uploaded yet.
Hey, I'm getting close to finishing off the Ace article :-) added loads more information than what is on there currently. I'll let you know when I send the email with the word document. And if I have the time, I 'might' do Juanita's too - but it's okay if somebody else does it before me! Because I honestly find it hard to get time to write these days. But I wanted to at least do Ace's article, for obvious reasons :-) I'l also get around to submitting more images tonight.
Hey, I've sent the email :-) feel free to reply over there, or so. But I hope it's all good! I'm really not sure if I want to rewrite too much now, since it took me quite a long time to do. I'll just work on sorting out all the images now =P
I was correct, Vernon is voiced by Nika Futterman, meaning Eugene and Lucy are voiced by Mona Marshall. I managed to learn this by going through her bio, and finding a kid show she once worked on, where she voices a kid named Miguel, who sounds just like Vernon. Here is clip of Miguel talking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMEdrNVES64, and here is clip of Vernon talking to Gleeman Vox in the focus test lab http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tgqnF0jVpA; note that their voices are exactly the same.

Even more cut Deadlocked content
Hey Hunterj! Somebody over at DeviantART shared with me some more cut content he discovered, but these were inside the HD version (oddly enough). I already added one of the skins he found, but he also found a cut weapon. But it's name is unknown. Here's a link to the weapon anyway. What do you think we should do with that one?
And also, here's a list of some things he found inside a text file...
Space Galleons (cut)
Sky Arena (cut)
Harvest Outpost (cut)
Interesting descriptions. I'm not sure if these are ingame or cut
When a Holoshield stops an attack, it shoots back projectiles back at the attacker
Maximum sniper zoom
Hardlight Laser guidance system.
Grenades bounce and roll and only explode when you press the button.
Two Vipers, one beam. Deadly.
Enables the Fusion Rifle shots to pierce through enemies.
When a Holoshield stops an attack, it heals any friend or bot standing behind it for cover.
The rocket launcher shoots a swarm of four smaller rockets.
Flying shrapnel-blades attached to a ball.
Instead of bullets, your Mini Turrets fire missiles!
Mines orbit around you to protect your "personal" space.
Turn the Landstalker into an eight-legged spider tank. (now we know why they call the Landstalker a spider-tank on the trading card!) Deity Mode
Forget being a peaceful deity, use your powers to DOMINATE! Sepia Tone
Turn the world into an old photograph.
Ace's Daily Run
Every morning, Ace gets up and runs this impossible deathcourse, then sits down to a healthy breakfast of Blarg-Slimming Cola (now with extra isotopes!). No other gladiator has ever dared to run this course. Not even the suicidal ones. (CUT)
Spider Versus Spider
Life is just better when you're in a Landstalker. Unless, of course, you're forced to gun down every other gladiator that owns a Landstalker. And you're strapped into the cockpit. And dynamite. (CUT)
Outrun, Outwit, Outlast
When his guns are out of ammo, that's it. The round's over. But this Lombax has quotas to meet, and scores to settle. (CUT)
The Sky Is Falling!
No, really. It is. And if Ratchet can't push the proper nodes to keep it aloft, then it really doesn't matter if he chews through eight specially-trained waves of robot gladiators, now, does it? (CUT)
This would be a lot easier if Ratchet's Stalker Turret had legs. But it doesn't. That's going to make dodging difficult. (CUT)
Mission descriptions with no names Use the hovership to destroy all of the flying swarmers, Ratchet must kill as many of the flying swarmers as possible within the available time limit. (CUT)
Race for your life on foot. (CUT)
Return to the ruined city for a Assault battle. (CUT)
Fight for your life around the remains of the Ace Statue. (CUT)
Score big using the Landstalker. (CUT)
Hop through hoops, Hovership style. (CUT)
Survive the enemy onslaught with the Hovership. (CUT)
Ratchet must race against the clock to capture the 4 nodes which are help under enemy control. (CUT)
Ratchet only has one weapon from the beginning of the mission. You must find and equip the weapons which are scattered around the station to help with capturing the nodes. (CUT)
There might be more stuff to find. But yeah, how do you reckon some of this info should be added? Im guessing some can be added to trivia or 'behind the scenes' on some articles. But some info doesn't realy need to be documented. Only problem is, is sourcing this kind of info. Because it's from text in the game, not from some audio or video file. Let me know what you think LurkingLeanne (talk) 00:36, September 19, 2013 (UTC)
Alright thanks for letting me know. I was going to do some articles myself, but I have to work over the next 4 days. So there's not much time for me to be online. But I dont mind at all if No Offense helps out! That would be welcome for sure.
Lol, I also have no idea what the 'spiffy' mod would be, and what it would do... it's weird. Even Shiny sounds weird. Anyway, the guy who found this stuff may give me more info as he finds more. He said that cut weapon had no name or anything, but it has a few similarities to the Dual Vipers. But even then, I really dont know for sure if they're based on each other.

Influences and Similarities page
As you already know, I've been itching to create an influences and similarities page highlighting stuff Ratchet & Clank burrowed, along similarities it shares with other works. Because of the nature of the page, containing items that are obviously implied, while other items within the page are potentially conjectural, I created a header template for the page to act as a sort of "Readers beware" kind of warning. I wanted you to look over, check to see if it will work on the page. Feel free to modify it if you want.

Well, based on past problems, I remember the time when a picture like that one was acepted to info boxes :p If we go to "Pilot suit" page, tools of destruction one is in a similar style like the one I uploaded. It goes rigth with infobox style and I always thought you would go to background less if there was no more left. In just my opinion, an insomniac background with that textures is perfect and asking for a place at infobox XD, like the pilot suit one is doing great I thought this one which looks more handy to this would be good. It's at least a thing to consider rigth? --LBPlombax7 (talk) 23:05, October 9, 2013 (UTC)
Well, it's still a great photo, it could stay in a box in the page rigth? Or at gallery of it? It's a official artwork afterall :p...(Plus it was kinda bad removing it in a second without taking into consideration other ways of use. Its a real huge pain uploading a image via phone due to horrible mobile version and keyboard, seeing it being zapped in a second without further questions is kinda upsetting :[ )--LBPlombax7 (talk) 23:20, October 9, 2013 (UTC)
True, but perhaps in a future gallery inside it, alongside with other in game photos, that artwork would be there. If there was a thing it attracted me to this wiki when I was young and barely could understand English was the pictures and saying "wow! I never saw this one before!" Nowadays it still happens and I personally think it should be no problem in the future having a background one at the gallery. Many pictures wiki showed them to me for the first time, thought we could do that to other readers :)! Plus, this is a small duplicate case and it would be to show different things, 1 being used at infobox and other showing related artwork. I've seen sometimes some cases of duplicates and this one is kinda just directed to "more pictures of it" intention. --LBPlombax7 (talk) 23:41, October 9, 2013 (UTC)

I forgot to ask you, but is it okay if I do this to some location pages, particularly to planet pages? I thought it might make sense, but your opinion might differ.

Thread invader here.I don't really think so, unless the pronounciation is really obvious and easy. Because everyone can pronounce it in a different way. An example is Kerwan, I pronounce it ker-wan and not ker-won. --- ItsBloonTasty (talk) 17:10, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
In the game, the "a" in Kerwan makes a short "o" sound, never in the game does "a" in Kerwan make a short "a" sound. And while I agree that Kerwan should sound like "Ker-wan," it always sounds like "Ker-won."
Also, the whole pronunciation thing only works for planets that are pronounced in the game, we couldn't do it for the Dobbo page for example, because Dobbo is never spoken out loud during Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando or any other game that I'm aware off.

Yes everybody might pronounce it differently, but that doesn't mean its the correct way to pronounce it.
No Offense 1:36 PM October 15, 2013 (UTC)
You just countered your own post. The way devs could be pronouncing it could not be the correct way. No one knows, so it shouldn't be added.
I have no idea how I countered my own post, but let me restate my argument anyway. I said anyone can pronounce a planet differently, but that doesn't make it correct. For example, I can pronounce Kerwan as "Key-wang." All the Ratchet & Clanks games pronounce Kerwan as "Ker-won," so therefore "Key-wang" is an incorrect pronunciation because nowhere in the game is Kerwan pronounced as "Key-wang."

Even More Cut Content found
Hey Hunterj! 0oDemonBoyo0 has found even more cut stuff, from my copy of the Ratchet Gladiator demo. He discovered that all the weapons (except the Harbinger/Supernova) had a 3rd model! Possibly as their max form or something, we're unsure. But it clears up confusion with some of the renders I've added to the weapon pages. It appears The Leviathan Flail render was wrong all along! I feel silly for not noticing, but now I know so I'll go and fix that. But what could I name the articles for the v2/v3 weapons? I'm seeing something like "Leviathan Flail v3" or "Quasar turret launcher v2". Because some of the cut weapon models are for their V2 versions, but some are for V3. I'll upload the images anyway, and start 'fixing' the weapon pages that have the wrong model on them.
Oh and also, he discovered renders of the cut wrenches for Deadlocked, but we're unsure which ones are for which wrench... but they all look very unique. Unlike the wrench in the game where it looks exactly the same.
He's also discovered more cut content from R&C1 and 2 demos, but some don't have names so we're unsure what to title them.
Hey, I was wondering if renders I made would be acceptable for characters or items that are hard to get a clear pitcure of.
For example, I made a render of the Gadgetron salesman and was wondering if it would be ok to use it to replace the one he has on the wiki now.
HunterJ, based at all the problems I had here in the past due to non discussed alterations, could you PLEASE discuss/ talk with me before making any big chances on a picture?
I know its your job to keep this wiki clean and all tidy, but I hink we need to talk before you clean up the things!
All the messages I sent to you in the past are due to non discussed modifications.
Lets look at the Ryno holo-plans image that was recently changed, my 1 and only motive when I uploaded that picture was the icon at the corner of it!
I had another image of the icon but that one seemed better because at least the getting the holo-plan animation was more related to the icon other than the main menu image I thougth adding before.
It had a RYNO V symbol and thats why I uploaded it & even made a trivia aspect about it!
In fact all the image descriptions of it were mentioning the icon, until ou cropped the image and totally deleted the icon and the reason why I uploaded it.
Its kinda discouraging to uploading future photos or articles.
At least if you didnt discussed before you could at least leave a message after it rigth?
Wikia Parent Filter
Hey there, Hunterj! My name is Doug and I'm a member of Wikia's Community Development Team. Wikia has recently incorporated a Parent Filter feature for the site, to help give parents a few key details about particular wikis that their children may be browsing.
The page can be reached at /wiki/MediaWiki:ParentFilter
We would really appreciate if you, or another admin on the Ratchet and Clank wiki, would fill in some of this key information onto this page. I also have the ability to fill this out for you, if time is limited for the admin base for any reason.
A few great examples of a completed parent filter can be found here and here. Thank you for the cooperation! Let me know if need any help with this process. Have a good one! TheBlueRogue (profile)•(talk)•(email) 21:47, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Hey, I am a long-time fan of Ratchet and Clank and back in 2003-04, I edited SEVERAL images from the first 3 Ratchet and Clank games that came out on the PS3. Recently, I resurrected those images, enhanced them, and found updated images as well. I have ALL of the sources for my work (some being my own original which I do not mind being used on this site).
I have SOO many, I just don't want to start editing all the wiki pages and going nuts. Please let me know how I can share some of my hard work I've done over the years. These are mostly weapons, gadgets, items and a few vehicle pictures for Ratchet and Clank, Going Commando (my favorite), and Up Your Arsenal.
Again, anything I can do to help you guys out.
I also have larger, enhanced pictures of other images I saw you were looking for better quality images. They are duplicate images, just enhanced, larger, and better quality.
Thanks for the time and hope I can contribute something!!
P.S. They are ALL .png and if you desire backgrounds added, I can do whatever.
P.S.S. I also have, for R+C:3, timelines of the V weapon upgrades. I have not yet been able to gather up enough pics for the mega-giga-omega timeline, but that is on my to-do list the next time I play through the game.

I'll be getting "into the Nexus" Friday, there's no spoiler rule right? From what I've seen, LurkingLeanne have been posting a lot of spoiler photos. So I suppose I can do the same when I get it rigth?
Suggestion: No photos
Sly Cooper wikia had it once, Jak & Daxter wiki had it also and many others had. The most recent was Sly that forbidden his users to post spoiling related images from the new game back then. I didnt wanted to be spoiled but the "recent photos" window present at every page spoiled it for me. US will have to wait a week, some EU will have to wait 2 weeks. I think its very reasonable to hold the image spoiler until then. LOTS of articles are without images and still are up to date. The Nexus article can be Up to date, fresh but without pictures for awhile! If a lot of article remained updated with all the info but with lack of pictures, into the Nexus can do the same for 2 weeks. Anyone can still go and edit pages, so an wiki user can only bw spoiled if he goes into those edits intentionally. I personally got spoiled for Full Frontal Assault once and wiki spoiled AlL4One final enemy thanks to "Recent photos." We all can avoid this to other users If we only edit text, put new info with text and do all the things needed without pictures. Thanks for being comprehensive, --LBPlombax7 (talk) 14:56, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
Re:Azorean Sea Map
What I did was take just the islands and the pirate ships, erase the background in each one of them, and put a new "pirate map" background from google images, because there were some blured parts in the corners, and the screencaptures didn't fit as good as it could. I kept all the pictures just for sure, if I had to change something.

Ratchet & Clank Nexus pictures
Hey, just wanted to say Im sorry if I did break any rules... but those screenshots are from near the start of the game. And some were from a cutscene that was already shown briefly in a Preview a month ago (but I have it in better quality) But yeah, I'm not uploading anymore to the Wikia anyways, not until it's out in the US at least (or later, even) Ive uploaded all the screenshots to my own website gallery though, if people want to see. Ive got no 'ending' cutscenes or anything though, since I only have access to the beta, not the full retail game yet. I have lots of concept art too but it's too early to show it all.

I was thinking that the section should include people ratchet and met more than once throughout the series, or those who had a deep impact on his personal life, or both even.

Guess Cronk and Zephyr really are dead. I just had a feel from the look of how they were still tied up when the ship was blowed sky high.

Because of time constraints (and fear of seeing spoilers, which I've had the misfortune of seeing at times on this wiki), I will no longer make edits on this wiki until I've completed Into the Nexus. Since I'm going to be quite busy for awhile, it will likely be mid December before my job slows down enough for me to play the game. Until I complete the game, I will avoid editing and visiting the wiki at all costs. I plan on removing the inuse template for the Thug Leader, as I failed to update him in time; I'll finish the job later. One last thing before I sign off, Abercrombie Fizzwidget should be ready for a nomination.

Thank you. But actually, this isn't my first edit on this site. I've made a few in the past, but record of them was lost when the wikia systems got revamped, despite my username not changing (this also happened to me back on the Breath of Fire Wikia). So I'm not a new editor on this site, but I haven't made any edits in a long while since then. So hopefully I can start contributing to this site again, though it'll probably be just small things like Trivia or spelling errors, but, hey, that's something, right?

The basics of me
To put it simply, I normally just roughly meld together the Main and Trivia sections, and the rest of the Wiki polishes and refines it into a Good/Featured Article, and also obsessively categorise certain items, such as planets, into a Main Category, and, if there isn't a sub-category, make the sub-category. —Unsigned comment at 20:56, 25 January 2014 by Renaissance1482 (talk • contribs).
Usually, any Trivia that I can meld into the Main section of a page WILL be melded into that section. There is no way for it to escape.
A good idea

In Q-Force, There's those Skill Points that require you to run a certain amount. So, if you just run around the starship phenix 2 from the start of the game and time it, you'll be able to figure out his speed using the 'Speed = Distance divided by Time' Equation
So i did that, and just incase took a video and put some explaining things on it. He Runs at 16.24 Kilometers Per Hour
I think it'd make a nice peice of Trivia for that Ratchet page
But I know that I need a source, or evidence for it. So, is that explanation enough? Either that or how can I get this video to you? (I don't want to put it on my youtube channel because i'm saving the channel for bass cover videos)
R.E. ratchet trivia
No worries for the delay I'm responding.

So maybe if you could? Or the person who recently edited the page could put it in, I'd be fine with that :) I just don't want to ruin it or anything...

You know in the charater article Ratchet it says "Ratchet was a Lombax native from the planet Fastoon who was later sent to Veldin at a young age." the keyword in the sentence is was a lombax. That whould put him not a lombax anymore right?

Hunter, some user is going around the wiki insisting neither Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank are non-canon, and keeps editing pages as such. Unless some official at Insomniac Games or High Impact Games states the two games are non-canonical, they should be treated as canonical with the Ratchet & Clank series.

Hello Hunterj, it's been a long time. I was once a major editor on this wiki and have decided to return. During my exploits on other wikis I have grown quite skilled in editing compared to when I was here, and have been promoted to administrative positions several times (though not through my DrNefarious account, which is primarily reserved for this wiki). I know that on this wiki you are not meant to request admin rights, but I think it would be best if you gave them to me. There are rarely any active admins on here now and I think that I could be of great assistance. I owe it to this wiki as the one I started on to be of help.Doc Nef (talk) 13:09, May 30, 2015 (UTC)

Featured User question
Hi! Long time, no see!
Remember The Gadgenator? That's my old name.
I just came across the page I made for "Secret Planes" and I was suggesting you to delete it, because it really isn't important enough to make an article necessary. Trivia could be added to the Hovership page about it, along with a screenshot.
Plus, the title really was bad.
I could've come up with something a lot better.
If you remember me, and you were wondering why I was gone so long when you saw this, it's because I became less interested in Ratchet and Clank over the years and went off to college. So I'm a lot more mature now than I was when I used the old account, and I want a clean start between my old presence here, and my new one. In other words, I'm embarrassed at how I acted before, to be honest.
All 4 One critters' names?
Hi! How do you know the All 4 One critters' names? Like Leafmuncher Grobulus? Those names weren't in the game!
Hi, Hunter. A bit of a shot in the dark, considering you don't even reply to emails anymore, but I would like to point you to Forum:User rights, where we're discussing demoting inactive admins, removing unnecessary bots, and promoting a couple more bureaucrats due to the relative inactivity of the only active bureaucrat we have now. Due to your inactivity, you are among the candidates for demotion. However, we've decided to contact you directly before taking it to Staff, to see if you would either remove your own rights if you don't plan on returning, or clarify your intentions to return if that is the case (in which case you may as well keep your bcrat rights).
I might be wrong on this, but I think if you remove your own bcrat rights you can still get them back, whereas if Staff does it you never can. Like I said though, I could be wrong on this; I only vaguely remember reading such things, but better safe than sorry.
