The Guide

Dinoguy, did you recieve my email with The Guide attached?

--Mr.Mouse 04:01, 24 August 2006 (EDT)

Yeah, I got it, now I'm gonna have to wait till I get home to extract it (notice the irony here... :lol: ) and look it over.


Okay, here's some riddle. Dinoguy's birthday is August 5, 1988. As of August 13, 2006 Dinoguy has become 18 years old. What is wrong in this picture?

--Mr.Mouse 04:33, 14 August 2006 (EDT)

I'm not sure, unless you're suggesting that I turned 18 on the 13th... which isn't what I meant. What I thought I wrote was that I was 18 as of the 13th, not that I had turned 18... =D

Dinoguy1000 16:46, 16 August 2006 (EDT)

Dinoguy, you are doing a great job! --Mr.Mouse

Thanks! =D *bows* --Dinoguy1000

Dinoguy, your surname is Patriakeas --is your family from Kardamyli, Greece?

My family, on my father's side, is Greek, but I don't know even which region in Greece he lived in (he immigrated here when he was younger).

Dinoguy1000 16:21, 23 August 2006 (EDT)

-- Mr.Mouse : Hey, Philip, i sent you a PM at the forum :P

Heh, yeah, I just saw that a few minutes ago... But then the batteries in my mouse died and I haven't gotten back around to the forum. Give me a sec... ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 15:12, 5 December 2006 (EST)

Changing for Wheel of Doom and Raw Flayer

Dinoguy, yesterday you modified my changes of the links of homepage "Wheel of Doom" and "Raw Flayer". You wrote: "we prefer links to official sites", but the link http://wheelofdoom.ucoz.com/ is old homepage of my tools and I made changes on all pages where these tools are mentioned. Please don't modifying my changes again. OK?

--Rackot 23:00, 22 December 2010 (EST)

Hello Rackot, those changes were made by IP addresses (meaning I could not confirm it was you/the tools' author making the changes), and looking at both sites didn't reveal any immediate connection beyond both hosting the programs. I understand this will sound like more trouble than is reasonable, but could you update wheelofdoom.ucoz.com to clearly indicate that it is the old website, and users should see the new site for the latest news/program versions (since I assume you are now publishing to only the new site)? This is mostly so I can make sure you are the tools' author, since I have no other way of knowing definitely - I am not trying to insult you or anything, but I can't just take your word for it. Thanks, and sorry for the trouble! ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:08, 23 December 2010 (EST)
Also, when posting on talk pages, you can automatically sign and date your messages by placing four tildes (~~~~) after your message. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 00:10, 23 December 2010 (EST)
Hello, Dinoguy1000.
OK. I posted a message on the my old website wheelofdoom.ucoz.com. Please see the latest news on the old website. Yesterday, when I made changes of the links, I haven't logged. It's my mistake.
P.S. Why the message displayed in green on a single line? --Rackot 03:40, 23 December 2010 (EST)
Thanks, it all looks good; feel free to change the links back again. ;) As for the message, I'm not sure what you're talking about... could you link to it or quote it for me? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 11:52, 23 December 2010 (EST)


Again and again: [1] Is it possbile to delete "Index.php" page from wiki and set block which don't allow anyone to create that page again? BTW, why there is no any captcha in this wiki? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 23:06, 24 December 2010

Deleted and blocked the IP that created it. There's no captcha mostly because I haven't installed the extension for it yet; I may do so later today or in the next couple of days (it *is* Christmas, so I'm busy with family). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:17, 24 December 2010 (EST)
Uh, sorry. Merry Christmas! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 20:20, 25 December 2010
I've installed and tested ConfirmEdit, it seems to work great (though I may up it to ReCAPTCHA if that still doesn't do it). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:17, 27 December 2010 (EST)
Thanks! 11:33, 28 December 2010 (EST)
Hm... when I add text above I don't see any captcha. What's wrong? 11:35, 28 December 2010 (EST)
The captcha is only tripped when you try to add a new external link to a page. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 12:07, 28 December 2010 (EST)
Oh, I see. Cool. Thanks again! 13:38, 28 December 2010 (EST)

Hello again. I see a lot of spam in "Recent changes". Articles deleted, but files like "Hvac ???.jpg" still there. Since all tools attached in forum posts, uploaded to Xentax or have an external site, maybe it's not a bad idea to disable file upload feature for Wiki? 07:45, 6 February 2011 (EST)

I would have deleted those images when I deleted the accompanying articles, but the server currently errors out when trying to delete images. I'll have to see if Mr.Mouse can fix it (he fixed (or at least oversaw the fix of) a similar problem with uploading files). In the meantime, it may indeed be a good idea to at least temporarily disable image uploads. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 12:59, 6 February 2011 (EST)
Problem fixed, and images deleted. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:41, 6 February 2011 (EST)
Thanks a lot! 19:47, 6 February 2011 (EST)

Hello there! It's me again. I want politely suggest two things.

First one: maybe you should add image-captcha (reCaptcha for example which are a hard to break with automatic tools) for any operation for the wiki. When I look to "Recent changes" I see a lot of registered users, which I think, just a spammer accounts. Actual changes to the description of the game formats is drowned in it. Captcha is easy way to stop this chaos. I think if someone want to fix or add information about a game format - captcha is not that hard or impossible thing to do for him.

Second one: I'm once add an external link in the description, but now I can't add it here and there due to spam-filter. Would you fix it please?

Thanks in advance! 05:41, 21 March 2012 (CDT)

Unfortunately, I can't currently do anything about the captcha used (I do agree, though, something needs to be done). We're waiting for word back from XeNTaX's host on the technical issue preventing this.
I've added the three links to the whitelist. Could you tell me what that site is (i.e. is it a personal site or a public downloads directory)? I would be willing to whitelist the whole site as long as file uploading there is restricted (to minimize the chance of someone uploading a virus or the like and linking to it from here). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:42, 21 March 2012 (CDT)
Thank you for reply! Oh, I see it's a technical issue with the host. About ctpax-x.ru - it's a CTPAX-X Team site which are all about game resources unpackers/decoders/converters, with few handy tools (see CTPAX-X Soft) and a nocds for old games. Most of the tools provided with Delphi, C++ and FASM source codes. CTPAX-X Team well known by famous Need for Speed Multimedia Converter (ctpax-x.ru/?goto=files&show=27) and ToWav tool by Xplorer (ctpax-x.ru/?goto=files&show=24). Here is the link to the file archive: ctpax-x.ru/?goto=files You can translate it with Google or any other service but keep in mind that you can't download anything from translated page (antileech system).
All right, I've whitelisted the whole site. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 11:26, 24 March 2012 (CDT)
Thank you! I've fixed links. 15:34, 24 March 2012 (CDT)

GRAFPageFormat style

Hello again. Would you change GRAFPageFormat style to bold and also increase font size? It's too small now. For example check: this (HTML, good) and that (GRAFPageFormat, too small). 14:50, 23 January 2011 (EST)

It should be fixed now. You'll probably have to bypass your cache to see it. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:11, 23 January 2011 (EST)
Works great! Thank you! 04:52, 24 January 2011 (EST)

Re: Blocked from creating a page

I can't create a user with name "SiPlus". 03:38, 22 November 2011 (EST)

It is serverside, when I try to register, the engine says that the nickname is banned because it matches .*\d* blacklist entry. 07:33, 22 November 2011 (EST)

Hello! I'm glad that wiki come back to live. The problem is that I can't edit any article with external link to wikipedia Endianness. I've got The following link has triggered a protection filter: http___en.wikipedia.org_wiki_Endianness (just replaced / with _ to avoid filter in this message). Would you fix this please?

Fixed, thanks for telling me. (I have no idea why that happened; it should have worked fine before, but whatever. =P ) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:11, 23 May 2012 (EDT)
