I think the main page should have a Latest News subhead for easy scanning. Aeonite 23:42, 21 February 2007 (PST)

Could transclude the entirety of Current events on Main Page somewhere by typing {{:Current events}}. Pomte 01:15, 22 February 2007 (PST)

Trent has told Kerrang that he is making Year Zero into a movie.

He didn't say he's making it into a movie, he said he has plans to. Scicks 00:41, 9 March 2007 (PST)

Main Page layout

It looks ugly. -Heroicraptor 15:37, 25 March 2007 (PDT)

New Websites

Are we not going to add Exterminal and Free Rebel Art to the website list yet due to the fact that they are [seem] nonfunctional as of now? And instead wait and see if other functional websites come before these are functional? Or should we just add them now (as we are going in the order of when we found them...)? Jgrizzy89 13:49, 6 April 2007 (PDT)

Also, Free Rebel Art, Mining For Life, Viability Index, and Exterminal are now live. Update the main page, please. Tsguitar 21:18, 15 April 2007 (PDT)

"Also around the same time, two websites that still look nonfunctional were found: Exterminal and Free Rebel Art." Fix that. Nickoladze 12:25, 22 April 2007 (PDT)

You guys can edit the main page news. There's a link directly to the right of "Recent News" that says "edit this page". -Tonyconverse! 13:06, 22 April 2007 (PDT)
But we can't edit the text in the box right above "Recent News." That's the area we were referring to. Tsguitar 23:00, 23 April 2007 (PDT)

Can someone create a template for the Web sites? Every one is formatted a different way. Or am I the only person bothered by that? Tsguitar 23:00, 23 April 2007 (PDT)

See Category_talk:World_of_Year_Zero for site standards (I'm still working on them, but if you see problems or have suggustions, feel free to comment :P ) --BurnHavoc 04:25, 24 April 2007 (PDT)

Wiki Malfunction

Anybody beside me having problems with the wiki logging you out randomly? -Crazyninfan 23:00, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

I get that once in a while, but I think its mainly caused by me not wanting to set cookies on any page whatsoever, so when I temporarily leave that page, itlooses any POSTdata... I think :) Jgrizzy89 16:41, 11 April 2007 (PDT)

Extra Page?

Isnt there another page (not sure if its a branch off of one of the listed ones) that shows the history of the US in the Year Zero concept? And when you pull the left side of the screen over you get different repsonses to each section? Where is that page, and is it one to be listed (remember, Im not sure if its located off of another page, so this question follows suit...)?

It's on Another Version Of The Truth.--Leo3375 16:51, 11 April 2007 (PDT)


Why can't we edit the front page anymore? And if it's an administrators issue, then will one of the possible admins please change the Newest Development section to tell about the One Country At A Time website? Thanks Jgrizzy89 16:09, 12 April 2007 (PDT)

You can edit subsections of the site with the [edit] button on them. The main page is locked because the admins want the layout to remain as it is. --BurnHavoc 24:31, 12 April 2007 (EST)

Another edit that needs to be made by admins is the fact that there are new(er) Mailstrom pages... I never saw that on the newest development blip... Jgrizzy89 16:33, 14 April 2007 (PDT)

There are LOTS of new mailstrom pages all the time. You can actually edit that section: Template:Mainpagenewdevs. --Tony 19:41, 14 April 2007 (PDT)

Just something that has been bothering me about the information on the main page; first you mention how people used the track listing to find related sites but I really couldn't find anything on how they did it. And the other thing is you mention that there was a glitch in one of the songs but then never relate it to anything or explain it. I may be over picky but those have bugged me since I started helping out, but other then my pet-peves this is an awsome set up thanks for starting this guys.-Kickemwhentheyredown 08:19, 23 April 2007 (PDT)

I believe the track listing mention is talking about Another Version of the Truth leading to The glitch is referencing the discovery of In This Twilight. While the glitch itself had nothing, it was a message for people to expect something, which came later that night in the form of a USB key found at a concert. I myself don't know the full details besides that. Alot of things in these games happen fast and are nearly accidental, so there are very few who have the EXACT details. :D --BurnHavoc 13:46, 23 April 2007 (PDT)

Track Navigation

It seems to me that the song pages would benefit from Previous Track / Next Track links in or below the reference box at right. Wikipedia does some stuff like this, but I think the "Strong Bad Email nav" over at is a good model for us. The code is simple:
{{sbenav|88|mile|local news}}
and the ease of use is impressive. Does anyone have good enough wiki knowledge to set up something like this?

JamesLucas 21:55, 12 April 2007 (PDT)

Out of what I understand, something like that has to be added admin-side, though I'm not sure if it has to be coded in or if Wiki has built-in support for adding stylized and new tagging like that. I'll look it up a bit further, I could be offbase and it could be something anyone can do. -- BurnHavoc 1:49, 13 April 2007 (EST)

I don't know if it was mentioned (my computers been shitting the bed lately so I'm online at skewl) and I'm wondering if anthing has been related back to the numbers in the lyrics booklet? I've noticed a few but forgot to write them down so yea j/w-Kickemwhentheyredown 06:56, 18 April 2007 (PDT)

I put the details about the numbers on the Year Zero page, go here. --BurnHavoc 11:53, 18 April 2007 (PDT)

Official link

check out, they changed the entire thing (i'm guessing on the 17th) also if you click under Resources link, there is a link to ninwiki! good job guys CrotchPope 13:39, 18 April 2007 (PDT)


I've noticed an insane number of new users being added, as well as an equal number of permanent bans. Think it has something to do with the web site Velvolver found that generates a sign on for you? Wiki admins seem to be having trouble keeping up...

It's because NinWiki got an official link on [1]. The bannings are pretty standard, it's some kinda vandal-bot that deletes whole sections of articles for no reason. We've encountered it in the past it's nothing new. --BurnHavoc 15:56, 18 April 2007 (PDT)

I take it back then... Didn't know we managed to get a link on My bad to whoever reads this. -Crazyninfan 17:12, 18 April 2007 (PDT)

Strange e-mails

Is anyone else getting odd e-mails? I got 2 in 30 minutes, once at 3:50 and once at 4:11. The first one was from "addison Passivo" ( and was titled "Seriously though, Shonen Knife was originally a three (now two) female rock group from Osaka Japan" with a body of "I didn't know what to say and was glad to bid them good-bye."
The second was from "Tanis Chiarello" ( with a title of "But no one had ever heard of them." and a body of "He'd probably be in bed, but I would get him up."
I've checked out both sites, neither seems to be related to the YZ ARG, I could just be getting spam, but what ties them together are the subjects... it's like the subjects are their own conversation and the bodies are completely irrelevant (or so it seems).
Shonen Knife DOES(did) exist, they ARE(were) a female trio from Japan, and AFAIK, nobody's heard of them.
Also, I received these on the e-mail I subscribed to OSR on, that's why I'm worried, otherwise I'd dismiss them as spam.

I'll put another comment here if I get another one, if I do and it follows the same pattern as the last one, I should either receive it at 4:31 or 4:33.CrotchPope 14:25, 30 April 2007 (PDT)

I tried e-mailing Tanis back, it was delivery failure, and from the artrageousfibers website I emailed "" and that was failure as well. CrotchPope 14:26, 30 April 2007 (PDT)
