WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to Sleeping Dogs Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Wei Shen page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Marijus Pikelis (Talk) 16:16, May 23, 2012

Hello Tom,

I'm glad that You share interest in this project. You know, I take this thing seriously, because I care about this game, about this wikia. I will give You administrator priviliges for a month, if I will see your effort put into this wikia and most importantly progress, I will be happy to make You a administrator.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Marijus Pikelis 18:09, May 24, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Tom,

I do a lot of research and take pictures from the videos.

Hi there,

My name is Ryan and I am the founder of Watch Dogs wiki. I think if we were affiliates it would help us both out with more users and views. Please let me know if you would like to be affiliates.

Thanks

Hi, TomEdit

I preordered Sleeping Dogs last week, I'm quite exited for the game? Will you get it as soon as it comes out? Leafsfanatic22 Talk 22:52, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Nice, that's cool, anything you want me to do, let me know. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 20:36, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

I definitely will. I think they've done a very good job of showcasing the main elements of the game so far, and revealing some characters. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 00:31, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Nonsense pagesEdit

Tom, a wikia contributor created a bunch of nonsense pages, just so you know. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 15:17, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, Tom. Sorry to bother you again, but I was looking at the Sleeping Dogs website. One of the "coming soon" characters is Jane Teng. I would assume that is what this wiki is calling "Inspector Tang." I think that Jane Teng is the real name of that character. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 22:33, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I think that she is actually 'Teng' not 'Tang' , even though I defintely hear Pendrew pronounce it 'Tang". I think that his speech makes an 'e' sound more like an 'a' sound, and I don't think that the official website is wrong, so I will rename the page. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 23:11, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Big Smile LeeEdit

Tom, I was trying to add categories to the Big Smile Lee page, as it didn't have any. However, after I categorized it, the categories did not show. I tried to add categories again but, still, they didn't show. Do you know what the problem with it is? Leafsfanatic22 Talk 19:21, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Golden KoiEdit

Is the Golden Koi restaurant, which Mrs. Chu owns, and Winston uses as a base, important enough to have it's own page? If it is, I will make it. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 01:58, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Also, do you think I should put in a request to be an admin? I think I could be an asset to this wiki. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 03:58, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thanks Tom, I will get on making the Golden Koi article today. I will continue to make good edits and then I will make a request for admin in the near future. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 15:47, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

I just put in my request on Marijus' talk page. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 02:07, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Tom, I'd really appreciate your info about my request for promotion on Marijus Pikelis' talk page. I've yet to recieve any response from him, though. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 22:42, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

Creating CategoriesEdit

Hi, Tom. How do you create categories? That's one thing I have never done before. One category this wiki needs is "Picture needed" or "picture required". Please tell me how to create a category. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 21:05, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Tom.

Leafsfanatic22 Talk 21:46, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I just made the 'picture' required category, I'll delete it and create an 'image required' category. Leafsfanatic22 Talk 21:55, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

New signatureEdit

Hey, Tom. Just wanted to show you my new signature and want to know if you like it. Ray Leave a message 20:35, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I thought that it did look a bit more professional. Ray Leave a message 22:42, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I am from Hong Kong, I am also the ones who are fascinated by this game. I have added an entry about the red pole position in the triads, which should be under the triad category. And characters like Winston Chu should also be included in the red pole category. I am new to wiki editing, would you me telling me the steps? Thank you.Ozcc 02:24, August 7, 2012 (UTC)


I have wrongly added a Winston Chu category while trying to include it in the red pole category, I am sorry for that, how do I remove it?Ozcc 02:33, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

I fixed it. Ray Leave a message 03:06, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

CategorizationEdit

Tom, I've realized that we are categorizing here by first name instead of last. (eg. Wei Shen instead of Shen, Wei) I know that it's not usual for it to be sorted by first name. Many wikis (such as the GTA wiki) prefer to categorize by last name. What do you think? Ray Leave a message 16:27, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

Me too, as long as it's consistent. Ray Leave a message 23:29, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hey TomEdit

Hey, Tom, how's it going? I've been monitoring the whole Joshualeverburg1 sockpuppet theatre, and the many other persistant vandals on the GTA wiki. I like that this is a quiet wiki with no drama... (so far, knock on wood) Is it just me, or are people getting crazier? This whole Joshualeverburg business is getting a outrageous as the "69ER." Remeber him? Anyway, Leverburg hasn't made his way to this wiki yet to voice his displeasure, but I'm watching. Ray Leave a message 05:20, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for letting me know, I'll be monitoring this wiki everyday, if not hiding from spoilers, after the game's release. After I finish my first playthrough, I will get to the character biographies. Ray Leave a message 17:01, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Meet...Wei ShenEdit

Hey there "The Tom"!

My name is jorge and I am on Wikia's Community Development team. With the release of Sleeping Dogs on the horizon, we thought we would include Wei Shen in an upcoming Meet the Character feature have been running. We were just curious if you were interested in contributing supplying a quote about by you think Wei Shen will be an awesome character! You can find examples of other "Meet the Characters" right here. If you or other admins think of something, let me know by leaving me a message on my talk page!

Best, Jorge @Wikia(profile)•(talk) 22:06, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Meet... Wei ShenEdit

How about something like this:

Wei Shen is the protagonist in the game Sleeping Dogs. He is an undercover police officer in a struggle to bring down powerful Triad organisation, the Sun On Yee, in the seedy underbelly of Hong Kong.

Wei was born in Hong Kong, but moved to San Francisco at a young age. After joining the SFPD, he was reprimanded many times for violence and fighting, but was still held in high regard for his intellegent and diligent nature. Wei was selected to go undercover in Hong Kong.

Wei is not without his connections to the Triad. Knowing Sun On Yee members since childhood, Wei can use inside information and his knowledge of Asian Culture to take them out. Wei also has his own personal agenda; his sister's death was caused by the Sun On Yee triad organisation. Wei sometimes uses questionable police methods, which causes internal friction between himself, and one of his handlers, Raymond Mak.

Wei is about to realize that being undercover in Hong Kong is different than any other police situation. Wei will have to go to extreme lengths, as well as be loyal, honourable, and intellegent, to get close to the Liuetenants, Red Poles, and Dragon head before showing his true hand.

Wei's skills:

-Driving

-Martial Arts

-Shooting

Wei knows:

-Thomas Pendrew

-Winston Chu

-Jane Teng

-Jackie Ma

Tell me what you think about something like this. Change it up and if you think you can improve it, by all means, go ahead. Ray Leave a message 04:55, August 11, 2012 (UTC)

RE:Edit

Yes, I'll definitely look after the Mafia wiki while you are gone. Have a good vacation. Ray Leave a message 17:21, August 11, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Redoing the themeEdit

I really like the theme, Tom. It looks really good.

I think the main page does it's job. I think it looks pretty good. I agree with you about the Sleeping Dogs wiki logo should be better. Especially the 'wiki' part. I've never worked with wordmarks before. You're much better at this type of stuff than I am, so I'm sure that whatever you come up with will look good.

I'm also wondering if Marijus Pikelis is ever coming back to this wiki. He's only edited once since the game's release. I'm starting to think that he's abandoned it. How long does the founder have to be inactive for a wiki to be up for adoption?

On an unrelated note, DarwinSighs came up with a suggestion on my talk page. She suggested that we merge the articles Dragon Head and Red Pole into one glossary style page, and also add other terminology such as "Sai Lo" and "Dai Lo". What do you think about this? Ray Leave a message 03:02, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, that's true, that we will need an active b'crat so that we can promote. I hope that he edits soon. Ray Leave a message 17:49, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

I agree, there's a lot of work to do and a lot of content to be written! We should get to work on it! Ray Leave a message 17:56, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, that is a lot of work. We also need to do things such as make more infoboxes and collect more pictures. You know what we need? Daniel, aka Liendax, working on this wiki. He's a great content writer but he's not very active anymore. Ray Leave a message 18:04, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Gallery VS. SlideshowEdit

What do you think is better for the wiki? To have regular galleries, which are on most pages, or to have slideshows, which are on pages such as the Girlfriends page. What do you think about this? Ray Leave a message 04:37, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Wordmark Edit

Hi Tom. So that I can have a formal record of it, please post your request on this request page. The wiki already meets the criteria for approval, so once you've posted the request there, I'll add Sleeping Dogs Wiki to the list and follow up with you. Thanks. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:43, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for adding your request to that page. If you have any specific ideas for the new logo, let me know. If not, I'll make one displaying "SLEEPING DOGS WIKI" using a font that's as similar to the game's logo as I can find, which at the moment is this one. Of course, I'll add the necessary effects to it to make it look like the game's logo, or as close as I can anyway. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:09, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
How's this? If you want to use it, feel free to save/upload it using the theme designer. Let me know if you want me to change anything. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 21:50, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Joe, I'm also an admin here. Just nosing in, but I think it looks really good. Ray Leave a message 21:54, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Cool. I'm glad I could help. :) JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:54, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

RE:Edit

To be honest, I like the current theme better. It shows more characters, not just Po and Pendrew. I also think that replacing "Triads" with "Sun On Yee" is a great idea.

To be honest, I'm not too crazy with the gray background: I think a darker gray would be better, such as the gray on the GTA wiki. I'm also not crazy about the current blue; it doesn't seem to fit! About the red, I like it, but could you interspese some gold so that it's like the theme? I think that would fit really well. Ray Leave a message 02:29, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

I've
Sdredgoldgrey
made a few changes to the sliders, mainly the images, if you want to change anything feel free. This is the theme with the GTA grey, red and gold. But with the red one a goldy colour is used for links, if you didn't notice. Tom Talk 15:07, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

I like the first theme that you made, with the red and gold letters, better. If you use the red with gold letters, could you use the darker gray background? Ray Leave a message 21:15, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I really like it! What do you think about it? Ray Leave a message 21:53, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

New ThemeEdit

Wow, it looks so good! When I came on just now I was floored to see how good it looked! Nice job! You really made a great theme that fits with the background and boxart. Ray Leave a message 23:38, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

RE:Edit

I think that's a good idea! But I've never been a beaureaucrat before. Whereas you are an experienced one! I think that we really have taken this wiki up a step! We at least need one active person that is able to promote. Ray Leave a message 21:08, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Haha, thanks! I think you've done a bit more than me with the theme and backgrounds! :) Ray Leave a message 03:39, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Projects:-Edit

Hey Tom, I love this game and I came by to see this wiki, I notice that this wiki is in an average state. And I have an Idea If we can create wiki projects(they are like dividing the whole game into different parts like:

(i) For the Police Characters

(ii) For the Triads

(iii)For the Landmarks

(iv)For the Vehicles

and have members in each part It could make all our editing lives easier.Come to my Sanctuary? ssj456sharath 14:26, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Okay thanks I noticed that there are only 86 members Come to my Sanctuary? ssj456sharath 14:59, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Greetings from LiendaxEdit

Hey Tom, good to be working with you and Ray again. I just did a bit of work on Pendrew (just realised I forgot to sign in though!), but it's not finished because I want to fix up the background section and do a personality section. Happy editing Liendax 15:10, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Matthewm20 21:28, September 12, 2012 (UTC)


one other question how about pictues do you have a size for them ?

Matthewm20 21:36, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

Achievements and TrophiesEdit

Tom how are the pictures i added to the Achievements and Trophies ? should i try to get them for ps3 as well ?

Thanks Matthewm20 (talk) 15:44, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Tom, I finished adding the PS3 Trophies.Joust thought I'd let you know.Come to my Sanctuary? ssj456sharath 16:02, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

Great. Tom Talk 16:45, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

SubcategoriesEdit

how do i add face missions to the subcategories on the mission page ? i cant see anyway of doing this even by looking at the pages in the subcategories.


Matthewm20 (talk) 21:56, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

HeyEdit

Hey Tom, thanks for cleaning up my edits, hope everything is ok and to everyones' liking. Also I did Winston Chu a while back, so feel free to check up on it and cross it off your to do list. Happy editing Liendax (talk) 11:37, September 21, 2012 (UTC)

Template:Welcome Edit

Not working how? I tested it, and it seems to be working fine. Besides, it's not like it's being used anyway. Could you maybe explain to me what the problem is? :) - TidusTehSacrificer357 01:30, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

Ohhhh, ok, cool. It works basically the same as the auto greet message, but you have to do it yourself and it's more personal and pretty >:P

If you want to disable the auto welcome, go to... Uh, lemmeh find it...

(Five minutes later)

Go to MediaWiki:Welcome-user and replace the content with

@disabled

Anything else you need? :) - TidusTehSacrificer357 02:33, September 30, 2012 (UTC)

PS: Haven't I seen you on the GTA Wiki? - TidusTehSacrificer357 02:34, September 30, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, it's good. Rounded edges are good, but I'm using Monobook, not Oasis. I'll take a look at it in Oasis, and get back to you. :)

And I believe I've spoken to you before about a to-do list on the GTA Wiki :) - TidusTehSacrificer357 01:09, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Ooh, Oasis looks pretty awesome :) Well done on that :P - TidusTehSacrificer357 01:17, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Well, basically, you manually put on a persons talk page;

{{subst:Welcome|The Tom}}
- ~~~~

And the template will appear with links to your page. :) Easy. - TidusTehSacrificer357 06:41, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Spotlight Request Edit

Hi. Sleeping Dogs Wiki looks pretty good, but would need a few tweaks in order to meet the spotlight criteria. The main page protection would need to be dropped to only block edits by anonymous users and new accounts. The welcome-bot would need to be turned back on (right now Mediawiki:Welcome-user is set to "@disabled"; it would need to say "@sysop" or "@latest"). Also, could you please customize the community corner? Finally, you would need to build up the content just a little bit. While you have over 200 non-stub pages, you would also need no more than 1/5th of your content or about 80 pages to be stub-length. Right now you have about 110 pages that are stub-length, so it is really only a bit of building needed. Please let me know on my talk page when you are ready for me to check again! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:43, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

To customize the welcome, you need to set Mediawiki:Welcome-user and customize Mediawiki:Welcome-message-user and Mediawiki:Welcome-message-anon. If you decide to enable wall you have to add a couple more. There are instructions here. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:09, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

ScreenshotsEdit

Hey Tom. I'm on a bit of a screenshot roll. My good friend Macklin (also known as User:Matthewm20) showed my how to take quick and decent quality screenshots by using clipping tool and youtube videos. I was just wondering, since I am amassing screenshots, is there anything in particular that you want me to upload? Ray Leave a message 22:12, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

I will have to sort thru the category. A lot of them actually have images that have the image required category. Ray Leave a message 22:36, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Gangster Squad Edit

Hi Tom, good to know you are also a Mafia fan. I checked imdb today and saw an upcoming movie called Gangster Squad, featuring the hot Emma Stone and Sean Penn, the great performer who can be a gay activist, former rockstar and a gangster. The trailer...is just like Mafia comes into silver screen.Ozcc (talk) 15:50, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

Nightmare in North PointEdit

Hi, Tom. As you know, Nightmare in North Point is coming out soon. Of course, that means we will have to add those events to the character articles and mission appearances. How will the format be? I was thinking something like this:

BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Example Blah Blah

Events of Sleeping DogsEdit

Example Blah Blah

Events of Nighmare in North PointEdit

Example Blah Blah

Additionally, for the mission appearances, I think it would be a good idea to do it the same as the GTA wiki when a character appears in more than one game. What do you think? Ray Leave a message 17:59, October 20, 2012 (UTC)


Yo, i just wanted to know why you deleted my page ( The Monkey King ). Thanks

Background update Edit

Hi Tom. Take a look at this preview of an updated background. If you like, let me know, and I'll upload it to the wiki. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:02, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

Updated background is up. I'll try to get the L.A. Noire Wiki background updated be the end of the week (Friday). JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 15:28, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

Pranks Edit

Please block these users: 190.120.237.92 and 81.224.226.22

They're posting random pranks on the wiki.

I'm BackEdit

Hi, Tom. I'm really sorry for being inactive for the last month and a half. Things had gotten very busy for me at school, as this is the year I will graduate. Fortunately, things hvae become pretty slow and and I'm on Christmas break, so I'll be back around making edits again. Ray Leave a message 20:43, December 26, 2012 (UTC)

great job 

Game Guide App Edit

Hi, The Tom!

I'm going to be working on the site tomorrow in an effort to build an entry for our Game Guide App. As such, there may be some tweaking of the category structure that would result in better flow on the site and allow a cleaner app interface. Keep in mind that admins have access to the app page in case you might want to change anything around later.

Once I'm finished, I'll let you know which categories are being used for the app and make a forum post letting regular users know. It hopefully won't take very long; if you've got any questions, please don't hesitate to poke me.

Best regards, Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 23:20, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

The site is pretty well organized, so probably no need for a forum post. Just wanted to pop in and say that the app is set up. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 20:54, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

AnniversaryEdit

The edit on a welcome page does make sense. And if you remove it again, i'll temporarly ban you.

Marijus Pikelis (talk) 08:37, August 14, 2013 (UTC)

Fixing the Main PageEdit

Wikifix
Hey man, i just wanted to say that it would be cool, if we fix the slider with images which are too big for the border and the Gallery (slideshow), which also is a bit off. I tried some fixes, but they screw up other things. Do you know how can we fix it?

Thanks. Marijus Pikelis (talk) 12:14, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

I don't really know how to fix that. I'd suggest contacting a Wikia Staff member, JoePlay is good with Wikia design, so maybe him.
I've noticed an issue with the background, when I scroll down there is a black section above the image and below the header, is it the same with you? If so, perhaps you could also mention this to Joe. Tom Talk 15:21, September 1, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. No, i don't see anything. You can maybe make a screenshot? Marijus Pikelis (talk) 18:11, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

DukeEdit

Sure but in Winston's bio it says that he is an enforcer so I'm just a little confused.

Hey man if you can,can you get some info on Duke,most people don't show interest in him but I do,thanks.

WOAH I'm surprised you'd actually block me for that, well I see your point thanks anyways.

I didn't mean to say Winston's bio I meant Mr Tong's.

DogeyesEdit

Why is Sam called Dogeyes.

Story Trailer (Main Page)Edit

Hey Tom,

why do we need a story trailer in the main page, when pretty much everyone have seen it? You already posted it in the Sleeping Dogs page, maybe we can think of something else to put in the main page. I just think a 'featured video' is all we need.

Marijus Pikelis (talk) 14:49, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, i guess we can keep it, at least for the time we think of something better. Also note that this fan film is created by me. Marijus Pikelis (talk) 20:20, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

As you probably noticed, I uploaded a photo of a brown Movit. I can also upload photos of other things; so let me know if you need a pic from sleeping dogs.

Ok, sorry. The I was just infatuated by the achievments. It won't happen again. Also, all of my edits on this wikia thus far have been to improve it, bar the one you mentioned.

WrinkleyDog (talk) 22:26, October 30, 2013 (UTC)WrinkleyDog
