Was gonna ask you more seriously about talking to TempEditor about his behavior and constant violation of the wiki's rules (No warnings. No reasons for reverts. Insulting people asking him why they were banned) But after looking through his talk page and edit history it is abundantly clear that he is immune from the rules AS HE HAS BEEN BREAKING THEM ON A NIGH WEEKLY BASIS FOR YEARS. Very sad. Literally hundreds of community members have been scared off and harassed by him over years with 0 repercussions. You should be ashamed.

I see how you handled a recent complaint by allowing him to ban them for 'vandalism', I see he was also called out for his blatant abuse of his admin status and nothing was done. Well this is not 'vandalism' it is a valid complaint so if I am banned for sharing this with admins and nothing is done about it you're just further proving my point.

welkambak and wassup

you planning to stick around for a while? wikia itself have been trying to modernize the wiki from under the hood. they're also talking with EA on stuff. if you have inputs/questions/suggestions you can always ask the staff guys lurking about.

Hello! Yes it's been a while. Life have caught up over here (work, baby, etc)... So I can't promise anything yet but I'll be sticking and helping around when I can.  teugeneTalkContr 16:45, March 9, 2017 (UTC)

(somewhat urgent) consult

do you have a couple of minutes to spare for today? would like to ask your feedback on something staff wanted our opinion on: ads/video testing on the wiki. you can offer an opinion now, or we can discuss this at chat (just say when, UTC +8). T̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 17:10, March 13, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. Was pretty occupied yesterday. I can discuss for a while now if you need to but I suspect you are probably in a different time zone from me (I'm in GTM+8). Was about to email you to send a private message but it's disable...though I recall it was not. We could use a quicker method of communication if you need to contact urgently.  teugeneTalkContr 06:41, March 14, 2017 (UTC)
no worries, we both have mouths to feed so it's understandable. wikia shut down emailing years ago due to not many people using it. we're practically in the same timezone in case you're wondering, and i have a tab on the wiki open for the rest of the day, so if you're around just hop in on Special:Chat.

Planet and system templates

Hello, I noticed you work the site's code. Another editor pointed out to me a problem with Template:PlanetDetails and Template:SystemDetails. Bothe templates display Milky Way as the galaxy for a planet or system by default, and I can't find anything in the templates to change this for Andromeda location pages. I don't know if the current templates can be updated to allow Andromeda as an option or if new templates are needed. I was thinking that the templates could be edited to show Milky Way by default if the parameter for galaxy is left blank but overriden if anything else like Andromeda was entered, since this would avoid having to manually update all of the Milky Way planets and systems pages to use a new parameter. You get what I'm going for? If you could help with this or find another solution it would be great. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ((╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) 07:00, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

Got that fixed for ya. Just add "galaxy = Andromeda" after the "cluster" parameter for both templates.  teugeneTalkContr 10:51, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks dude, you're a wizard! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ((╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) 22:15, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

Question regarding the Andromeda Galaxy planets and system. I am aware of the Planets article for the trilogy but we were hoping that a similar separate page would be created for the Andromeda planets. Maybe Planets_(Mass Effect: Andromeda). With the new game in a new galaxy entirely, I personally believe this would make the most sense. I can help with this if needed. Pinkachu (talk) 07:56, March 18, 2017 (UTC)
I share the same sentiment as you. As you said, it's a completely new galaxy after all and IMO, all ME:A only information should be separated from the current trilogy articles, which includes the celestial objects pages, and to a greater extent, missions, romances, and the likes. For now, please do proceed with the creation of the new pages that you mentioned, I will discuss on the latter pages on a separate topic. We could use all the help we can!  teugeneTalkContr 11:27, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

Nav Bar Needs Andromeda

Hello! I chatted with Temporaryeditor78 yesterday in regards to the navigation bar. He mentioned he and you had talked about it as well, and that you had an idea for it. I think a Mass Effect Trilogy heading with the three games under it would definitely make enough room at the second level for Andromeda. We would really like to see this happen by Monday. If you don't think you will have time, let me know and I can do it. Thanks! Pinkachu (talk) 07:39, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

On a side note, I will be around to help with content next week. I have created articles already but as part of our agreement with EA, we (staff, not your community) have been asked to limit our information reveals until launch. After launch, I will be helping out for at least the first two weeks, if not longer. Thanks for coming back! Ping my wall if you need anything from us. Pinkachu (talk) 08:06, March 18, 2017 (UTC)
Yup I do! Here's the rough idea off the top of my head.
The short term idea: Create two new tabs - Mass Effect: Andromeda and Mass Effect trilogy. Under the ME trilogy tab, merge/simplify all Mass Effect trilogy links instead of separating them by the games (eg. just Missions link instead of Missions#Mass Effect, Missions#Mass Effect 2, Missions#Mass Effect 3 that it is now in the nav bar), and finally move the "Universe" and "Other Media" to the ME trilogy tab.
To visualise, it would look something like below:
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda
    • Missions
    • Romance
    • etc, etc
  • Mass Effect trilogy
    • Gameplay info
      • Enemies
      • Missions
      • Assignments
      • Talents
      • Powers
      • Romance
      • Equipment
      • Romance
      • Weapons
      • Achievements
      • etc etc
    • Universe
      • All the current universe links
    • Apps
      • Mass Effect: Galaxy
      • Mass Effect: Infiltrator
      • Mass Effect 3: Datapad
    • Others
      • The first level links from this tab
The long term idea is to create a portal for the trilogy using the old homepage links, as way to make links more accessible (taking a cue from the Fallout wiki). But that will be a discussion for another day.
I hope I covered everything I had in mind. What do you think of it?  teugeneTalkContr 12:08, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Aleena


Thank you for the welcome into the community, although I believe I've had this account for almost, if not over, a year now, just haven't done anything to it.

Regarding your message left on my wall (I'm not sure if there's a way to reply to threads, barring editing them) I realized my mistake and left it at that, although there is a spelling error that I tried to resolve.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by having feminine used as an incorrect term to describe the asari, as I had corrected it to Female, from Feminine. If that was in error, then my apologies.

Looking to Help

Hey, I'm looking to add a lot of content for the new game as I've done on a few other wikis in the past. I'm hoping to find this is a friendly community you and the other admins are running here. I thought I should let you know that I recently had a discussion with another admin, Temporaryeditor78, and he was rather rude in his response to my concerns about a page being a bit confusing. I respect his position as an admin so I'm not about to argue with any of his decisions I just feel his response doesn't portray a very inviting picture to those of us who would like to contribute to this project. I had planned on committing a substantial amount of time to this wikia but I am thinking better of it if that's how I'll be treated by the admins. I hope we can all get along well together. AnuChemicalCo (talk) 04:27, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

Hello and welcome to the wiki! I get what you mean about the page being confusing. It's something on my mind as well and it could use a little clearer and more prominent notice on the page. We will be working on ways to improve it.
As for Temporaryeditor78, he doesn't intend to come across as rude or insulting. It's just that there will be an influx of new info in regards to ME: Andromeda, there'll be no time for pleasantries as we the admins are a little shorthanded to ensure it meets the standards of this wiki. But please don't let that put you off but stick around and contribute what you can. To help you get started, please read our Manual of Style to get a general idea of how things work around here. If you have any other questions or even suggestions on how things can improve, feel free to drop a message here at my talk page.  teugeneTalkContr 05:46, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Planet Template

Sorry about that! It just dawned on me that I probably broke something and went back to revert but saw you already caught it. Thanks! Pinkachu (talk) 06:19, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

You're welcome and no worries about the template!  teugeneTalkContr 07:28, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

Navigation Bar

Hello, I wanted to get your ideas about the top level navigation bar. I saw the blog post from User:Temporaryeditor78 regarding this issue and just wanted to make sure I knew what your intentions were before I continued adding content.

Do you wish to replace the game guides, as used for ME1-3, with this Super Walkthrough page? I've already setup a guide page, mission page and it looks like someone setup a combat page too. Do you want those all accessed via the Super Walkthrough page? Do you even want a guide page at all? Do you want the missions page which is used for ME1-3 to also have Andromeda missions on it? Currently the guide, mission and combat pages have no way to be accessed via the top level navigation bar, is that your intent?

I'm interested to hear your thoughts when you are able to respond. AnuChemicalCo (talk) 01:39, March 25, 2017 (UTC)

There are a lot of questions there, and if I understand correctly, they are broken down to these:
1) Do we want to a) replace the (ME:A) game guides with the Super Walkthrough page or b) make the guides accessible through the Walkthrough page instead?
As I see it, the Super Walkthrough (let's call it SW for short) page allows beginners/newcomers to quickly access some of the important pages. So, the SW does not replace the game guides but rather, it complements them (and other pages). The guides pages can continue to develop as more info from ME:A trickles in and I personally think it should be linked from the SW. On that note however, I'm not sure if the SW must be kept as it is without any other modifications (I do not know is the agreement between Wikia and EA or if it applies to the SW).
2) Adding ME:A missions on the current Missions page?
It's preferable not to have ME:A missions be added to the current Missions page as the info are from Trilogy and its tie-in app games. Moving forward, it's better to have a clean-slate and start a fresh new page for ME:A. In fact, there's already a ME:A missions page.
3) Are we making other gameplay pages accessible via the top level nav bar?
The top nav will be continually worked upon from time to time. Its current iteration is something we whipped up on the fly in lieu of ME:A's impending release. So it's not our intention to leave those links out from the top nav.  teugeneTalkContr 15:08, March 25, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for taking the time to decipher my bunch of questions. I believe I understand now what the intent is. I'll hold off on modifying the SW page until you decide if we're supposed to be modifying it. Hopefully we can change up the navigation bar soon as there's no other way to access the guide page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AnuChemicalCo (talk · contr).
On that note, I think it's better to talk to Temporaryeditor78 or Pinkachu for more info on the SW. They probably have a better idea about it.  teugeneTalkContr 17:24, March 25, 2017 (UTC)
Yea, I left the same note on Temporaryeditor78 talk page.

RDIcon Templates

I created a single RD Icon template as you suggested. I don't have the priv to delete the other two templates though. I tagged them for deletion though. Also, I saw you were in chat, sorry I might have been AFK. I'm here now though. AnuChemicalCo (talk) 18:52, March 25, 2017 (UTC)

New Bureaucrat Needed

Hey, I'm making this post on the other admins walls as well. I'd like some discussion on the forum post I made Forum:New_Bureaucrat_Needed. The wikia currently has no active bureaucrats which means no one that wants to become an admin can apply to do so. Would you be interested in taking that position? AnuChemicalCo (talk) 00:25, March 30, 2017 (UTC)

something seems to be the problem

and it ain't my glowing administrative persona. rather, i'm seeing a spate of new users not getting our autowelcome messages lately. i'm not really sure what causes that since we haven't really messed with any backend systems that much. or did we?

might have to ask wikia in a few days if this continues.

Hmm I'm not sure if I noticed it. Any particular user that the auto-welcome is not showing? The only one issue I noticed was the auto-welcome message is always signed by Elseweyr. The last edit to the auto-welcome message was to make wiki guidelines much more visible (but you already know that) and I don't think that broke anything.  teugeneTalkContr 05:35, April 17, 2017 (UTC)
Hey there! I talked with Temporaryeditor78 previously, and I discussed with him how I don't think I got the autowelcome message. Since he pointed me back to them, I made sure to read over them again, and hopefully I don't cause anymore hiccups. Anyway... do I count for a "particular user"?
Fundastraz (talk) 19:18, April 17, 2017 (UTC)
I never got an autowelcome message either. AnuChemicalCo (talk) 00:56, April 18, 2017 (UTC)
Can't be a coincidence if both of you are not receiving it. Will get a Wikia staff to look into it.  teugeneTalkContr 08:44, April 18, 2017 (UTC)
sent them a bug rep this morning, covering the autowelcome and the signatures. haven't had the time to check if this also happens on other wikis or if they're already aware of the issue, but there it is T̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 13:16, April 18, 2017 (UTC)


You've seen my pleas on other admins pages, though temp was in a rush to delete my VERY valid criticisms one is still up on Deidre's page if you need to read it again. Your last conversation with temp is VERY clear that you KNOW he is abusing his privileges and you are CHOOSING to do nothing. I do not know who Lancer is but YEARS AGO my name was Ottakanawa. I changed a few spelling errors and I made the mistake of correcting an error that was actually in the game and temp reverted my edit without warning, banne so me without warning, and was rude to me when I asked why.

I mean he clearly, temp, he clearly KNOWS because he has deleted some of the nastier things he has said to people.


Hi! Thanks for the heads up. I thought I put (skill) on all the pages, but I must have made a mistake. Also, thanks for letting me know not to capitalize the word skill. Some of my disabilities mean I have a hard time with that kind of thing, so it really helps that you pointed that out.


I was going to suggest this to the Wiki's Bureaucrat but it seems like both of them have disappeared and you're the only active Admin. How about you change the wiki's display style of the category pages. If you go on this page and toggle Category Exhibition on, the category page's will have a neat image based grid you can scroll trough, like Marvel's wiki. It's much better than the text based list the wiki has right now. You'd need to become a Bureaucrat first tough, by asking on the Community Central (

I can enable it as an admin. However, to enable this feature on this wiki, it's best to get the community's vote.
Personally, I prefer the text based list. In a quick glance, I can see more links in a page compared to an image grid. It works for Marvel articles because they have mainly individual characters pages that can be identified with just one thumbnail easily, unlike our articles. Appreciate your suggestion for improvement though.  teugeneTalkContr 21:42, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

Help Removing Images

User:Nomad27 recently uploaded a bunch of very low resolution images. I've left a message on his talk page and marked all the images for deletion. Can you please help with this?AnuChemicalCo (talk) 02:40, April 30, 2017 (UTC)

I'm thinking if Nomad27 or another user could upload a new version of the image instead. With the lack of a better alternative, an image is better than none. It'll also be a bit easier than to delete the file and then remove the dead image link from the article.  teugeneTalkContr 07:01, April 30, 2017 (UTC)
Funny, something is better than nothing is the same philosophy i was taking with the adversary infobox that I tried to use. I guess this doesn't apply in that case.AnuChemicalCo (talk) 08:00, April 30, 2017 (UTC)
The difference is it's a project I worked on it and I kept it as draft until I think it's ready to be discussed in the forums. If you have any ideas you want to implement, you can create a new infobox sandbox (or duplicate from my draft), and then propose the project in the forums when you have complete it.  teugeneTalkContr 09:33, April 30, 2017 (UTC)
I'd prefer to just wait for you to finish. AnuChemicalCo (talk) 20:43, April 30, 2017 (UTC)

I noticed you deleted things you consider not trivia. So I have a specific question. If I wanted to make an edit in a mission, about a different set of dialogue, that is dependent on previous choices, where would be the appropriate place to mention them in the article, if not in Trivia. It's not a major change, just a simple dialogue exchange. 16:15, May 4, 2017 (UTC)

see Category:Unique dialogue.
if not about/by squad members, information placement is dependent on whether walkthrough-relevant or character relevant: integration on the main body of text itself without making them stick out like a sore thumb, hence these aren't classified as trivia.

left-hand infobox labels

are you seeing too many hyphenated right-hand data on infoboxes like i do or is it a depending on screen resolution thing? i had half a mind to reduce the left-hand labels to, say,

.pi-theme-MEWiki .pi-data .pi-data-label{ flex-basis: 79px; }

and equivalent on other infoboxes since the right-hand side tends to get cramped whenever a lot of items are input there. only noticed when looking at Paul Grayson's appearances box and i was hoping there's a more elegant solution for that.

Yeah shucks, I figured that would have caused an issue somehow. Looks like I will have to add this specifically to certain templates rather than have it applied globally. I'll have it fixed later.  teugeneTalkContr 13:56, May 20, 2017 (UTC)

Character infobox update

I just wanted to let you know i finished updating the infobox templates on the character pages. All that remains on the list page are a couple forums and talk pages, a bunch of user pages which you asked me not to touch and the Mass Effect Wiki:Templates page which I felt best to leave alone. The Cat Master (talk) 18:21, May 23, 2017 (UTC)

Great job and thanks! There's nothing we can do about those remaining links as it'll be against wiki policy to edit them. However there are other templates which require an update as well if you're up for it. I have been wanting to update those but time is scarce for me at the moment.  teugeneTalkContr 18:42, May 23, 2017 (UTC)
No problem. I was happy to help. I am willing to work any other templates that require updating. Just let me know which ones need work. The Cat Master (talk) 20:18, May 23, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, much appreciated. Below here are two tables that list the infoboxes and navboxes with the old name and the new name. Similar to what you've done with the Character infobox template, almost all the pages with these old templates names have not updated to the new name. To find out which pages uses the old template names, go to, where "xyz" is the old template name. (eg. Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Adversary)
Just like before, avoid articles that are not in the main namespace such as the User or Forum pages. Drop me a message here if you have any questions.
In case you're wondering about the reason behind this name change, you can read it at Templates naming cleanup project.

I'll get right on it. The Cat Master (talk) 15:56, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

Inconsistency on Rachni Soldier page

The article is called Rachni Soldier, but the infobox says it's called a Rachni Warrior. The term Rachni Soldier is used everywhere else on the page. I wasn't sure it the name used in the infobox was also correct. I thought I better point that out before changing the infobox. The Cat Master (talk) 17:32, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

they're labeled soldiers ingame.

(edit conflict) Probably an oversight. Looking at the page history, the first person who added the infobox had it written as Rachni Warrior. Cross-check with a few videos on YouTube and they are listed as "Rachni Soldier".  teugeneTalkContr 18:03, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

botwork or what i warned you about a while ago

there's about 566 images under the adversary categories if we're really migrating everything into the enemy_ category space.

I looked into it previously. Haven't really understood, nor have the time to set it up. Have you tried it?  teugeneTalkContr 18:06, May 24, 2017 (UTC)

ME:A enemy infoboxes

I noticed that an enemy infobox template for Mass Effect: Andromeda does not seem to have been finalized yet. I was not able to find a template for ME:A enemies except a draft version. Currently this kett dude has the infobox for enemies in the first Mass Effect. The Cat Master (talk) 17:09, May 25, 2017 (UTC)

Yes, it is not finalised yet but it will be implemented soon.  teugeneTalkContr 01:46, May 26, 2017 (UTC)

Andromeda weapon infobox

For some reason the new Andromeda weapon infobox does not show up in articles after replacing the old template. (Example) For now I will keep the old infobox template until that problem can be resolved. The Cat Master (talk) 17:05, May 30, 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, I got it to work. The Cat Master (talk) 18:58, May 30, 2017 (UTC)


Was gonna ask you more seriously about talking to TempEditor about his behavior and constant violation of the wiki's rules (No warnings. No reasons for reverts. Insulting people asking him why they were banned) But after looking through his talk page and edit history it is abundantly clear that he is immune from the rules AS HE HAS BEEN BREAKING THEM ON A NIGH WEEKLY BASIS FOR YEARS. Very sad. Literally hundreds of community members have been scared off and harassed by him over years with 0 repercussions. You should be ashamed. I see how you handled a recent complaint by allowing him to ban them for 'vandalism', I see he was also called out for his blatant abuse of his admin status and nothing was done. Well this is not 'vandalism' it is a valid complaint so if I am banned for sharing this with admins and nothing is done about it you're just further proving my point. 06:33, June 12, 2017 (UTC)
