Unused images has been checked, it's good to go, only added a pic to turbo slider. As for maintenance, maybe fix this? Likely can just remove the broken file from the sig altogether. --Tim H - Talk 19:51, October 4, 2016 (UTC)

PDA ammo prices in SM and SAC (infobox weapon)

The ammo prices in SM from the PDA usually cost 5x times more than from a vendor. Tumpp1357 (talk) 15:16, October 8, 2016 (UTC)

Ah, thanks. Should be the same for SAC as well?--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 15:22, October 8, 2016 (UTC)
Will check next time I play SAC Tumpp1357 (talk) 15:36, October 8, 2016 (UTC)
In SAC ammo for Clank's weapons from PDA cost 10x times more than from a vendor. --Tumpp1357 (talk) 17:21, October 8, 2016 (UTC)
Could only Clank use the PDA?--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 22:05, October 8, 2016 (UTC)
Ratchet can also use a PDA but he cannot use a vendor. (This is because ammo for Ratchet's weapons is automatically refilled when starting an arena challenge)--Tumpp1357 (talk) 02:45, October 9, 2016 (UTC)
Hmm, I see. Does this mean there are different prices for ammo for Clank's weapons and for Ratchet's?--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 08:18, October 9, 2016 (UTC)
Don't know what you mean exactly, but in SAC Ratchet and Clank have their own weapons unlike in All 4 One in which they share weapons for example the Combuster.--Tumpp1357 (talk) 11:09, October 9, 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I remember that. I mean, does the ammo for Ratchet's weapons cost less with the PDA than Clank's, or do they both cost 5 times more than usual?--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 11:16, October 9, 2016 (UTC)
In SM only Ratchet has weapons. Ammo for them with the PDA costs 5x times more than normally.
In SAC ammo for Clank's weapons with the PDA costs 10x times more than normally. And Ratchet in SAC is unable to use a vendor but he has the PDA. Because Ratchet is unable to use a vendor we don't know how much ammo for his weapons would cost normally. --Tumpp1357 (talk) 12:31, October 9, 2016 (UTC)
Ah, perfect. I'll update the infobox. Thanks!--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 12:34, October 9, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Weapon pages

There are not done yet main reason being that I visited Russia and came home day before yesterday. And the hotel had horrible Wi-Fi. --Tumpp1357 (talk) 02:40, October 18, 2016 (UTC)

SM weapons are now done, altough I think the Bee Mine Glove (SM) and the Bee Mine Mk. II (SAC) should be merged as they are basically the same weapon and the Walloper and Plasma Whip in terms of apperance and combat changed more than the Bee Mine Glove --Tumpp1357 (talk) 06:13, October 18, 2016 (UTC)
PS. You cannot buy ammo with the PDA for the Static Barrier Tumpp1357 (talk) 06:51, October 18, 2016 (UTC)
SAC weapons are now done as well and I will check your rewrites of the weapon articles when you do them--Tumpp1357 (talk) 08:56, October 20, 2016 (UTC)
Nice, thanks! I will do Deadlocked first, and after that, I'll try and do SM and SAC weapons.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 09:36, October 20, 2016 (UTC)
When you start rewriting SM weapons my sandbox 1 has information about SM weapon mods (The sandbox is incomplete but I think you will find it helpful). The table at the beginning has the information when a mod becomes first available and prices for the mods. The text part has in-game descriptions for each mod and some have an effects part that tells what the mods do in better detail than the in-game descriptions. --Tumpp1357 (talk) 12:47, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

And the Groovitron situation became complicated

So it is called the Groovitron Glove also in FFA. So I am using Playstation move heroes as a third example for the Groovitron but that is not in this wiki's scope and because of that probably cannot be used as a example. Either way this means you should rethink your vote. The Device forum. Tumpp1357 (talk) 16:26, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

It doesn't really change my opinion a whole lot, but thanks for letting me know.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 17:29, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

Re:

LOL The wiki looks f*cking horrible. Why did you guys changed the way it looked? Torta de Limão (talk) 11:45, November 5, 2016 (UTC)

Well, that is your opinion - some of us thought that the background image was horrible. Like I said, it is a temporary change. Please do not unilaterally change it.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 11:47, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
It's horrible now; between a blank page and an image of quality showing Ratchet and Quark, most people in the world would prefer the last one. It's a matter of sense, not opinion. You guys are messing up this wiki. The templates for the weapons, enemies and characters are really awful as well... and as an admin, I should be noticed by those huge changes. I don't agree with them.
Regarding to the revertion you did to my edit (that took me quite some time to do it, btw), I was just following the wiki politic's regarding the MoS. It has always been this way. Weapons articles, from what I am aware, are included to be written in past tence, yes. Torta de Limão (talk) 11:54, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
No longer in effect? When was that decided? Also, I think it wouldn't cost too much to leave a notice on admins and burocrats of the wiki... just saying. And why did the manual of style has been deleted? So awkard decisions. Torta de Limão (talk) 12:02, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
We decided to have no background instead of a bad one, a background should emphasize the content on a wiki, not distract from it. We all agree that we want a background, however we are yet to find an actually good one. Nevertheless the design is not final and is up for change, which you should do via community discussion on the forums. Regarding the templates, the weapons one is new and is ours, if you have any complaints I recommend using the relevant talkpage to discuss it (it's not perfect but better than what we had), the other two we didn't touch since we joined.
Regarding your status as an admin and changes on the wiki, it is your duty as an admin to stay active and engage in various wiki-related activities. It is not your duty to go and edit war and change things on your own decision, this is grounds for admin abuse and can and will see your rights revoked if further continued. We are not going to go and spoonfeed every change to you, you're free to join our discussions on Steam or Discord though (most wiki-related stuff we discuss off-site because it's convenient).
The old policy and MoS are no more, instead of we have a new guideline that is a lot more simple to uphold and stick by, and a hell of a lot less bloated (you can say 'fucking' now btw). Admittedly it doesn't cover everything because we assume some things to be common sense. Just because the wiki always has done a thing one particular way doesn't make it actually 'the correct way'. --Tim H - Talk 12:07, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
And the reason we no longer use past tense for everything is because, for anything outside of lore, it makes no sense. There is no reason to describe gameplay information in past tense when I can play the game right now. The Miniturret Glove fires lasers at enemies when I throw it, but it was made by MegaCorp. This discussion was actually held on wiki (using a Special:Forum feature that was removed by consensus, but it could be done again in Forum namespace). Your disagreement with these decisions in no way invalidates them.
Frankly, if you had issue with any of these decisions, you had plenty of opportunity to oppose them. You still do, in fact, through the correct procedure, have the opportunity to propose alternatives in discussion. I would simply advise you that you are going against the consensus of four users on the vast majority of these issues which have been settled.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 12:16, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
I'm really curious about what "non-distracting" background you guys are going to put lol The last one was perfect. It had quality and it fitted with the previous theme. If you think that way, no image should be added then! Because, honestly, they all lead to distraction!
No notices came to me; nothing making me aware of the facts you people decided. I was always active over here, and I'm a bit sad of how things are going on. Instead of making those pointless changes in the wiki, why didn't you guys, responsible for that, make a template to warn active admins of the wiki about the changes? 
I wonder why that discussion was removed... something like that should never be deleted. It is a total layout change for the wiki. This is wrong is so many ways. Almost every article was written in past tense; MoS rules. 
The new templates are bad. The previous ones were fairly better, dude. The ones you created look unprofessional and very simple. It's ugly, in other words, sorry.
And I shall not be "revoked" for just stating my opinions here. Torta de Limão (talk) 12:30, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
I'm curious too. It is not anyone's job to spoonfeed you on wiki changes, it's your job to stay active, something you are clearly not as your last activity since today was two months ago, no one would call that active. We do actually keep other active admins (DrNef mainly) up to date on changes we make, but the keyword here is 'active', something you're clearly not.
It was removed because the whole new forums were removed, you're free to bring it up again and re-do it, we won't mind. Total layout changes for the wiki are fine, it's what we intend to do. You do realize we didn't really make any templates but the main page and weapon infobox one right? Like we keep saying, instead of whining about it you should try to do it better yourself (without touching the existing templates, use a sandbox on your userspace instead). I think PapiDimmi (now resigned admin) changed the templates' look himself, we do intend to change 'm though).
No one ever said stating your opinion is wrong, it's wrong however to abuse your rights. --Tim H - Talk 12:39, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
Wow, you checked my last edits. Guess that means something. Anyways, I know I'm not that active here anymore, obviously. When Hunterj was gone, things started to collapse a bit and I began editing with less frequency. But, as I said, I has always been active here. Not a lie. I used to log in every day. And, even not making any edits, I visited the site sometimes to see how things were going in the past months.
I would like to put the previous templates for enemies and weapons, if you don't mind. Torta de Limão (talk) 12:46, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
Make a forum topic for it, Techno's talk page isn't the relevant place to discuss it. --Tim H - Talk 12:49, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
My shorthand answer, though, is this: Aside from the weapons template, the templates you seem to object to, and their appearance, have very little to do with us. Therefore, I have no objection to you putting the previous template for enemies back. However, please do not revert to the current weapons template, as not only is it completely incompatible with the old weapons template, but it is still a work in progress. We are going to change its appearance completely with CSS instead, and I invite you to share your thoughts when we do.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 12:54, November 5, 2016 (UTC)
  
 Nevermind, then. Don't wanna waste my time with this, since my chances are low. I don't agree  with nothing of this and my edits on here will keep falling over and over.
 I am not motivated enough to continue working here, Techno, but thanks, anyways. Have a nice  day.  Torta de Limão (talk) 13:01, November 5, 2016 (UTC)

Lacerator SAC history/lore add

Onto the stand where you get Dual Lacerators there is plaque that reads: "These are replicas of Ratchet's Lacerators". I do not know how this information should be written to the Lacerator article. Since you have more experience writing articles could you add it there?

Re: Page deletions

Ok, let's just close this ridiculous issue. As this talking title suggests that the real issue was page deletions, I only wanted to know about the deletion of pages.

I did not victimize myself. I was just expressing that I got really offended by all this attack you made on me. I said I am not in position to criticise anybody and I don't think it's bad to mention my concerns.

What my role will be on this wiki from now on: stick with correcting grammar errors and other minor edits and nothing else. Happy now? Thanks... I guess. --c0ητr165 Pl@smo+@!κ 12:54, May 15, 2017 (UTC)

Plasmo, none of us attacked you at all. Jak Himself's comments about "waltzing in with a few hundred edits" were not to be taken personally, it was simply to illustrate that while you were highly critical of the changes we had made, you were not in a position to simply demand we reverse them all, or claim that a bcrat who made them was inexperienced and should not have been made one. None of us consider you a troll or have issues with you voicing your concerns, but it is pretty unreasonable to demand we inform every single active user about the changes we have made.
Admittedly, we were harsher than we could have been, due to the witch hunt that was (unintentionally) started after your first message. We have no problem with you having a role greater than correcting grammar or making minor edits. You are more than welcome to become more actively involved with the wiki should you choose, and I hope you do not continue to feel intimidated here.
To address your primary concern, which is page deletion. Lots of pages have been deleted (and it's possible that some more may be too) as we work to streamline the wiki to only the pages that are necessary. This means that readers do not have to click on dozens of pages to find what they want, as there is a lot of evidence to suggest that having to switch pages many times often causes readers to be frustrated and look elsewhere to find what they need (hence why we merged all weapon pages with their upgrades).--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 13:25, May 15, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for informing me about deleting pages, that's what I was looking for in first place but, you know what, I don't care anymore. You know, using some kind of forum rather than a temporary chatroom can help everyone. What about new users? They're not able to help because they don't know what's going on around here?
And who said I was the first to even mention that the user was "inexperienced"? Look at the talk page again. And, by the way, nothing but concerns for this user can be found, not curses, not offences. Is it wrong for someone to tell their opinion?--c0ητr165 Pl@smo+@!κ 13:36, May 15, 2017 (UTC)
Using a chatroom helps everyone too. It allows us to discuss changes far quicker than waiting for a back and forth on the wiki, which takes a while. We often invite said new users to the Discord to discuss it with us, so it's rarely true that they don't know what's going on. You were not the first to mention "inexperienced" (that was a resident troll who did), but you did press the charge further. And no, we've already told you we have no problem with you expressing your opinion?--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 13:46, May 15, 2017 (UTC)
Ok then, end of story.--c0ητr165 Pl@smo+@!κ 13:50, May 15, 2017 (UTC)

One last thing: I would like you to understand that, since I was (and I still am) bad-tempered, I did not really read everything you posted on my talk page. You say that PD is actually a bad user, a troll, and he is who actually told Tim H inexperienced. Why didn't you (all admins) contact him as well in first place? This is why I find all of your reactions on me unacceptable. How would you feel if you were told that you're not worth being heard if you only have a few hundred edits?

This was the only wiki I was interested into and the only reason I came back here was to add some new information I had found, but found the page I was looking for deleted. I just can't keep helping this wiki if you treat me as a minor editor. And, what I also think is that one less stupid, minor user really counts, so here is the end of my editing career. Goodbye.--c0ητr165 Pl@smo+@!κ 18:58, May 15, 2017 (UTC)

Why don't you re-read our messages then while we play you the world's smallest violin. —Jak Himself (talk · contributions) 19:05, May 15, 2017 (UTC)
So, hold on. You just admitted that you didn't read everything I posted. Had you done so, you would have read the part where I said comments about your edit count were not to be taken personally, the part where I said we will be happy to hear any other concerns you have, and the part where I said we do care about our community, we just don't care to waste our time with trolls. Note the last point in particular: it is precisely because of this that we messaged you in response to your concerns, and did not waste time contacting PD (we will give him a warning if he continues trolling). This alone should show we think that a "minor user really counts". If "treating you as a minor editor" means "not giving into demands to message every single inactive editor about every change made under the new team", I'm not sure what to tell you.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 19:14, May 15, 2017 (UTC)

notability

Did you mean female video gamer LivesAtHome? I figured since she is named by a main character and has a voice actress she would qualify. Could that redirect to a spot on the list of minor characters? talk2ty 14:14, August 19, 2017 (UTC)

Possibly. Being named and having a voice actress does not qualify for having their own page.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 14:27, August 19, 2017 (UTC)

Send me the tweet on my talk page, please. Torta de Limão (talk) 01:25, January 31, 2018 (UTC)

Sent the thread as requested.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 01:36, January 31, 2018 (UTC)      

Thanks. I was not aware of that info. I previously contacted Insomniac a long while ago, and they just said those games were spin-off titles. It still doesn't make much sense to me the fact they are canonical, but that's their saying, anyway.

About the "Relationships" section on the Ratchet page, I thought some parts were a bit speculative, specially the bit regarding Angela Cross, as it's only shown in the game that the character, Ratchet, really cared for her, in general. But that doesn't necessarily mean he has some kind of love interest or something. 

I'm okay being deposed from having administrator rights in the wiki. As you said, I was not being that active and stuff and I agreed with that. Torta de Limão (talk) 19:58, February 4, 2018 (UTC)

It's fine. The current word for SM and SAC is that they're canon, and any mistakes or contradictions can just be explained by HIG having different/worse writers to Insomniac. Therefore, we just assume they are canon until we get a more official statement denying/confirming it. Insomniac treated the games as side stories so they didn't have to worry about contradictions when making the games, but no contradictions occurred anyway.
Not sure how that's speculative? Angela Cross is portrayed as a love interest for him, or at least she kisses him at the end of the game. She's about as close to him as Sasha was in UYA.
No problem-- if you want to become more consistently active at any point, you are welcome to have your rights back.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 13:42, February 5, 2018 (UTC)

Mikey Kelly

Personally, what do you think about Mikey Kelly's voicing Ratchet in the original game?, i thought he sounded weird, because i'm so used to James Arnold Taylor playing him.—Preceding unsigned comment was added by Tkgaynor (talk · contribs). Please sign your posts with ∼∼∼∼!

I prefer James Arnold Taylor. While I see what they were going with with Mikey Kelly's Ratchet, with the idea of him being more like a hard-edge teenager, I found him really irritating prior to his character development. JAT fits a much better Ratchet to me, though I preferred Ratchet's character in the Future trilogy best. You see a more clear character arc throughout that trilogy and character development that makes him endearing, rather than just "he starts out annoying for six hours and then you like him for the last few".--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 18:23, February 18, 2018 (UTC)

Admin rights

Hey Tech, can i apply for Admin and Bureaucrat positions for this wiki?

Tkgaynor (talk) 23:40, February 18, 2018 (UTC)

You can, but I warn you that you probably won't get approved until you have a lot more experience and work done here than you do right now.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 01:53, February 19, 2018 (UTC)
I'll also add that there's not really any such thing as "applying" for adminship. Admins are usually appointed organically after becoming apart of the community and participating in projects and stuff like that. From there, whether you need admin tools to continue your work will determine whether you become an administrator. —Jak Himself (talk · contributions) 21:34, February 19, 2018 (UTC)

Status deletion

My guess is that you deleted the status of half the characters on this wiki because of spoilers?

Tkgaynor (talk) 05:56, March 12, 2018 (UTC)

Not sure what you mean? If you mean the infobox, the status cell was removed from all of them as it is useless; the intro section will reveal their status anyway (either they're alive or they're not).--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 07:12, March 12, 2018 (UTC)

Talk page deletion

Hi, Technobliterator.

I was wondering why you reverted my revision on my talk page.

I would like to have my talk page deleted for various reasons: I no longer go by my old username, I am ashamed of the way I used to behave here, my old signature (which was foolishly a template transclusion) is broken, and I am no longer a contributor on the Ratchet & Clank Wiki.

I would have deleted it myself, but I did not do that before I removed the moderator rights that I had back in 2016. I contributed a lot to this wiki, and it was a very fun time to help out on this wiki, but as you probably know, I am no longer a contributor.

I would also like to apologize for acting immaturely and unreasonably last year. I regret it and wish I had treated you, and the other administrators and moderators, with more respect. I acted foolishly, and that is one of the reasons that I would like my talk page and its archives to be deleted.

Could you please delete my talk page and its archives? I promise not to be a further bother again, as that is all I want, seeing as you deleted my user page and a redirect to it, which I’m grateful for.

I would appreciate it very much! Cheers. Affirmation talk contribs 04:46, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

Essentially, I did this because it's my policy not to remove content from talk pages. This is the policy on most wikis I administrate, but I checked the guideline here again and saw that it's not actually against policy here. Thus, I have honored your request and deleted the talk page. If you would like us to remove other discussions you were involved with as we come across them, I'm sure the others won't object.
Your apology is accepted, and it is most appreciated. While a lot of other commitments get in the way, we're trying our best to improve this wiki when we can, to get it to the quality standard we want, and I hope you and others will be happy with where it ends up when we're done with it. I wish you the best of luck with whatever you go on to do next!--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 05:11, June 10, 2018 (UTC)
Thank you!
I’m glad to hear that you accept my apology. I rue my behaviour and wish that I acted more appropriately preceding and following my own removal of my user privileges. I hope that DrNefarious, Tim H, and Jak Himself can forgive me as well. I see that Jak Himself is no longer an active contributor to this wiki and no longer a bureaucrat or administrator. That is unfortuntate, as he was a good contributor.
I can see that this wiki has improved a lot since I quit being an contributor to the wiki. I’m glad that you are making progress and improving the wiki.
Have a nice rest of your night! Affirmation talk contribs 05:24, June 10, 2018 (UTC)
JH is still going to be involved and provide insight, he just won't be editing here full time. I can confirm the others have forgiven you and also appreciate the policy. Glad you like the progress we've made, hope you like our next improvements as well!--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 15:40, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

Movie Weapons

I think the weapons that appeared in the film are as follows (in case any were overlooked):

  • Combuster (used by most of the characters)
  • Alpha Disruptor (Ratchet practiced with it, Brax used it whilst fending off some Zurkons and Nefarious used one as well)
  • Negotiator (briefly used by Victor when trying to stop Clank from escaping, then used by a Ranger Warbot during the invasion and Ratchet practiced with it)
  • Buzz Blades (Ratchet Practiced with it, then he used it to close the door into Nefarious' lab on Quartu and then used it in his battle with Qwark)
  • Warmonger (Ratchet practiced with it and Qwark used it in their battle aboard the Deplanitizer)
  • Spiral of Death (Ratchet practiced with it and it was also used by Ratchet and Qwark in their battle)
  • Fusion Grenade (Ratchet practiced with it)
  • Frost Cannon/Cryoshot (used by Cora to put out some flames on Qwark and then used by Qwark during his battle with Ratchet)
  • Pyro Blaster (I think... Brax used it when fending off some Zurkons)
  • Mag-Net Launcher (Used by Drek to capture Ratchet)
  • Thundersmack (used by Clank to defeat Victor)
  • Constructo Pistol (Used by Ratchet at the start of his battle with Qwark when he threatens to take him in "by force, if necessary", it shot a boxing glove)
  • Plasma Beasts (used by Ratchet in his battle with Qwark)
  • Tornado Launcher (used by Qwark during his battle with Ratchet)
  • RYNO (Nefarious' last-ditch attempt to kill Qwark)

Hope this helps. WikiSurf (talk) 10:13, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the list, this is helpful! We're currently on the fence about if we should actually include a "movie weapons" category, but definitely including a short sentence or so for each weapon's appearance in the movie would be great.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 12:02, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

I get a feeling you're gonna say no to this, but if i am able to, can i add a "Romances" cell to the character infobox? i get a feeling that you will say no because it might be a little unnecesary.Tkgaynor (talk) 01:09, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

You think correctly, there is no real need to add it, sorry.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 01:10, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

Hey

You and the others have done a great job with the wiki, thanks for all your hard work. BTW, I noticed that there's an issue with the first source on the Valkyrie page, but I don't know how to fix it, would you take a look? --Doc Nef (talk) 15:34, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

Glad you like it! I'm hoping to finish GC within the next month or two. Fixed the issue with the cite template.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 15:40, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

Another thing, I've noticed that all of the re-imagined versions of the character have been merged with their original selves aside from Robot Lieutenant / Victor Von Ion and Resort Owner / Felton Razz. Is there a reason for that or is it an oversight? --Doc Nef (talk) 15:42, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

We kept Robot Lieutenant/Victor Von Ion separate because we couldn't find any hard confirmation that they're both the same character, aside from Victor occasionally being referred to as a "lieutenant" and them both being robots. We ultimately felt that they were both different enough to be kept separate unless a source confirmed it.
With Resort Owner/Felton Razz, we decided that Felton Razz was a new character just replacing the Resort Owner, due to him being a different alien species and having a completely new personality. This is in contrast to, for example, Starlene, where it's clear that it's the same character due to having the same species, and that Starlene is just the name of the previously unnamed hoverboard girl.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 15:46, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

I see, but since the 2016 R&C material is in-universe fictional accounts, wouldn't they be the same characters, just with differences due to the fictional nature of the stories (similar to the extreme differences with Nefarious for example)? This seems to be the case since their holocards list the PS2 Ratchet as their debut. I'll leave it up to you and the others though, just wanted to weigh in my opinion. --Doc Nef (talk) 16:06, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

IIRC the holocards aren't very reliable, it's been brought up a lot in the server. --Tim HTalkpage 16:41, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

Sure, I just meant that overall the game seems to indicate that these are the same characters, just with fictional traits added by Qwark. --Doc Nef (talk) 18:24, April 22, 2019 (UTC)

  • In the same vein I'd also argue that the PS4 Slim Cognito is a fictitious character based on both Shady Salesman and OG Slim Cognito and would thus go on both characters respective pages. I wouldn't do the same for Juanita and Darla though, as the Darla name on PS4 is a clear error. --Doc Nef (talk) 18:44, April 22, 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, forgot to reply to this... I don't plan on returning to R&C1/R&CPS4 content (at least, not for a long while), but the idea of making giving PS4 Slim Cognito character a separate page is fine by me. I think regarding Resort Owner/Victor Von Ion, it's really ambiguous, but for the sake of wiki organization it's much easier to just keep those pages separate.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 19:17, April 25, 2019 (UTC)

No worries, I don't want to get in the way of the work y'all are doing here (I have no right to considering my inactivity), I'm just throwing out food for thought. For Resort Owner/Victor, rather than saying "new/separate character" it could instead say "heavily altered version of character" or "fictionalized incarnation of character". In the case of PS4 Slim, it could be done the same way as we have Galactic Rangers (re-imagined). I'll leave it up to y'all of course. --Doc Nef (talk) 19:31, April 25, 2019 (UTC)

Timeline

Yeah SM's tricky with the timeline. I'll leave their timeline placement to you for when you get to them, but I guess I'll also leave some info with you as a starting point for when you get there (apologies if you already know all of this).

  • SM has to occur at some point after UYA due to the presence of Nefarious in Dreamtime. The news article Qwark reads in the first cutscene sorta implies it's not long after UYA.
    • As far as I could find there is no indication or implication anywhere that it occurs after Deadlocked.
    • In Deadlocked, Vox says Ratchet has "saved the galaxy three times over", this is almost certainly a reference to RC/GC/UYA as they were the only released games at the time, but it is also an error as Vox is only referring to Solana being saved, while GC took place in Bogon. This error is cleared up if he's referring to RC/GC/SM.
  • For the story of SAC, Ratchet defeating Otto Destruct is mentioned in one of the final cutscenes, so it's after SM. The Reaper presence in prison implies it's also after Deadlocked.
    • The release of that SAC story in-universe occurs after TOD due to the in-game statement of "an upcoming episode of SAC".

--Doc Nef (talk) 19:03, April 25, 2019 (UTC)

We've received criticism in the past because of the question of SM's placement in the timeline. I recall watching a video by some youtuber where this point was brought up - right here - and in an interview with HIG, they stated specifically that it takes place after DL. Ideally, I'd have to find that exact video interview and link that as a citation on the page itself, but anything HIG said about that game is gospel.
Regarding SAC, the "upcoming" in that line only refers to the fact the game was yet to be released when ToD came out. That is not a canonical statement, because it was only stated in a line of dialogue that was written for the player.--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 19:14, April 25, 2019 (UTC)

Ah I had no idea about that SM interview, guess that proves it then. --Doc Nef (talk) 19:31, April 25, 2019 (UTC)

IRIS Wiki

Hi Techno, I would like to have this wiki removed due to SEO reasons. The main Ratchet and Clank Wiki occasionally does not appear in results, but this one does. I initially obtained bureaucrat in order for it to eventually be deleted in favor of our own. Thanks for the help. Thatawesomecat (talk) 00:42, May 12, 2019 (UTC)

Hey TAC! Thank you for getting in touch with me about this; I'll pass this on to the relevant people and see about getting it closed. Thank you, and keep up the great work!--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 00:43, May 12, 2019 (UTC)

Lombax

What should we do about the female Lombax featured in the trailer of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart on the Lombax page? Matthew Cenance (talk) 20:23, June 11, 2020 (UTC)

Well, we don't know anything about them, so just mention there's an unnamed female lombax and that's it, pretty much...--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 21:19, June 11, 2020 (UTC)

DrNefarious

Hey Techno, I'm DrNefarious. I haven't been around to edit here in a while and was wondering if you and the other admins here would like my bureaucrat and admin rights on that account removed? For housekeeping purposes. Even if I do show up to edit in the future I probably won't be fulfilling any admin duties anyway. --Neffyarious (talk) 21:49, June 13, 2020 (UTC)

Hey there, that's fine by us, thanks for letting us know!--Courtney Gears promo render.png Technobliterator TC 22:01, June 13, 2020 (UTC)
