Sysop Confirmation

  • Hi, I'd just like to confirm whether or not you're a MouseHunt staff or a player volunteering Sysop. Thanks! Eepeng 14:06, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
If you go to Lore then Game Credits, you will find that Dave Vanderburg appears under game development as a coder/designer of HitGrab. So yes, it is confirmed that Dave is part of MouseHunt's staff. --Peter888 20:32, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism Reporting

Hey Dave.

Wondering if you wouldn't mind if I setup a page where people can report vandals? It's quite non-wiki skilled people friendly too.

What I'll use looks like this ... well, it IS this, I'll just copy/reword to MHWiki and adapt for the images until image uploads are available.

Page deletion, etc.

Dave, I'm wondering if any of the sysops are actively monitoring Category:Pages_proposed_for_deletion and/or if there's any system in place for getting rid of trash pages, making decisions on what's appropriate for inclusion, establishing policies, etc. There's a growing amount of what I consider to be garbage on MHWiki and I can see it getting exponentially worse as time goes on. I've done quite a bit of cleanup already and would love to help out further, but I'm feeling a bit frustrated that there's no visible admin presence and it kinda feels like the Old West to an extent. A bit of law and order would be a real help. Thanks! --Brossow 02:34, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Just re-read my entry above and really didn't mean it to sound as whiny and demanding as it seems when I look at it again. Sorry if it came across that way to you! -- B.Rossow talkcontr 18:00, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Images and copyright

The more I've been working on infoboxes, the more I've become aware of how much copyright violation is going on with regard to MH images. Maybe you're not concerned about the posting/hosting of the high-res images of the mice, traps, etc. on other sites, but I am. Wonder if HitGrab would be willing to make the "official" images available for linking from this site. After thinking about it, I'm not sure you'd want to upload them directly here because that would effectively release them into the public domain (I believe -- haven't really read the terms & conditions here) but hosting them on your own server and linking to them would work nicely. Just a thought -- it's your intellectual property, not mine.  :-) -- B.Rossow talkcontr 19:56, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Tools Page

I recently found out that the tools page has listed or has had listed some abusive tools, which is why it's not linked to from the main page or links page. What is considered abusive, and can we get rid of them and maintain links to useful, non-abusive tools? Thanks --Navarr 20:50, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
