Worms Scheme Contest

Now Balee created a contest site for scheme ideas. Should this page has a reference to that site or maybe change this page to a page that only appear all the scheme ideas of that site? Thanks Balee for Worms Scheme Contest, i really liked the idea and the site! FoxHound 16:57, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

I think that the name of this page should be changed to "Worms Scheme Contest's schemes". And be created 2 divisions: Schemes that were accepted on the contest and schemes that weren't registered there (all those 3 schemes of here [that i created] were submited to the contest, but they were not accepted because they were already seen by the public). In each division should be created a sub-division to the categories and sub-categories of the schemes that were submited to the contest. The schemes that won the contest should be put in bold or be listed on a page for all the schemes that won the contest, or maybe those schemes should be put on Schemes page and there could be a division like "WSC's Schemes that won" or something like that.

There will be a listing of submitted schemes in the WSC article when WSC is over, there's no need to modify this article. Balee 07:44, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Ok, just an idea because here people would put just schemes ideas that were already seen by the public. Totally new schemes will not be here, they will be in WSC page. FoxHound 02:10, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Page exclusive for schemes

I'm tired to be banned in this page, can anyone make a page exclusive for schemes?!?!?!?! WTF I'd like so much ppl see my schemes,... Dx bye UISxFighter


UISxFighter, I know about what you are passing by, because I was exactly like you here. I put my schemes on the schemes page (i thought it would be just like the blamethepixel), but they weren't popular and the page is for help all players to know the most famous schemes. But i think that a place where you can put images, organized informations and replays is wonderful to people understand your scheme. This is why I battled many times asking and discussing with the other editors to create this page. If you stop and look this wiki, you will see the hard work that people spent here. So please tell thanks to this page and use it well. Maybe one day your scheme will get famous and will appear on Schemes page. FoxHound 05:48, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
To be honest, it would surely be wonderful if many of the less popular schemes were added under to scheme page, not scheme ideas. Not many people know about this scheme idea page, and there are many potentially great schemes that should easily belong to the scheme page such as QuickDraw. There's nothing actually harmful about putting the less known schemes into that page; schemes on schemes ideas could easily moved to other schemes and/or other rubber scheme category at schemes. Also, I noticed that there are only about 1,600 views in scheme ideas page while there are 30300 views in scheme page. Btw... Just to get things straight, I'm not actually a crazy person. I just happen to create a very wacky profile, and any constructive comment on any discussion regarding me would be welcome. I'm a scheme maker who carefully construct each scheme to make sure schemes creations are balanced, interesting, and fun. Anyways, I thank CyberShadow a lot for creating rubberworm and this site to begin with, and another huge prop will go for CyberShadow if you actually agree to this argument. =) DumbBongChow 05:45, 22 May 2011 (CEST)
Just some corrections: Pisto created RubberWorm, not CyberShadow. But to run RubberWorm, Wormkit is necessery (and Wormkit was created by CyberShadow).--FoxHound 08:17, 22 May 2011 (CEST)
I don't see any reason why you can't put those "less popular" schemes here. The only thing you should be aware is that people can argue about the your scheme or make variations on it. That's why it's called "scheme idea", right? --Explorer09 19:06, 22 May 2011 (CEST)
Right. I would be happy to see variations of ideas and people disscussing and giving opinion about the schemes, this is the idea. Some days ago I joined #worms (IRC Channel) to talk about this suggestion with people to see if they like it or not, but when I talked with CyberShadow he disliked the idea and what I understood is that he thinks that I want to promote my schemes, because Schemes page is more popular and that this wiki is not a billboard for this. I'm still upset about what he wrote, because I know that I don't think only about my schemes, I think about all schemes, including the popular ones, because I like schemes. I think he was stressed that time or maybe I'm annoying for him and we will have troubles to deal with each other forever. But I'll not give up all my work here, I like this wiki, but if I'm disturbing his work, he can ban me whenever he wants and I'll not annoy him more. Sorry if I said something that CyberShadow didn't like.--FoxHound 20:25, 22 May 2011 (CEST)

Schemes of players that are not editors of the wiki

I want to know if is possible to add to this page, scheme ideas of people that are not editors of this wiki. I think if the author agree with the appearence of her/his scheme on this wiki and lets the editor create the scheme article, it's ok. The editor should agree with this too. What do you think? FoxHound 03:06, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

I have no objections. --Vladimir 07:38, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
FoxHound, would you please put the credit of the author onto the scheme page of which is not made suggested by yourself? --Explorer09 10:51, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
Well, all the scheme ideas articles don't have references to the authors inside of them (my schemes too), because the list of the schemes has already an author column. But if you think that it must be done i will do it. Buick is my friend in worms, i never see him live, but we chat in msn. He asked me if i could put his scheme here. I'm not being selfish. FoxHound 11:51, 3 July 2010 (UTC) (a typo corrected by Explorer09)
Yes, because someone looking (only) at the article might confuse about who made the scheme. --Explorer09 12:31, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
They may not know the author, but they will not think that i'm the author just looking (only) the scheme article. I think you are saying that because i put the article in BlameThePixel, but there i put that the author is Buick, i'm just the uploader. FoxHound 13:16, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

GIF archives

Hi, I don't understand much about informatics and computation, but I remembered I uploaded a GIF animation here one day and the file was too big and not so relevant, so it was removed. However, I think GIFs are a powerful information tool in this wiki and I think it would be nice to see more gifs on the wiki. I've uploaded some GIFs SiD posted on TUS here, but I wonder if they are too heavy or if I should stop doing that, at least too big GIFs. Maybe I should put external GIFs only. What do you say about that? I don't want to cause problems to the wiki or any trouble. Any specification about adding files on this wiki I would apreciate.

EDIT: Since I didn't receive any response and I noticed that the wiki has a file size limit of 2MB, I believe the gifs will not be so heavy and worth being uploaded. I discovered a way to convert them to 2MB or less easily, so I will upload more GIFs from now on. --FoxHound (talk) 10:13, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
I'd say gifs are much better for getting concepts across and could replace the multiple images on weapon pages like the Cluster Bomb. 2MB sounds like a lot, but I'm sure they could be compressed by some enterprising individual. Run! (talk) 21:33, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
Like this? I compressed the file from 1.41 MB to 360 KB. Maybe I should have done this before with other gifs I uploaded here, sorry for that.
