Since my screenshot uploading activity peaked in 2013, and this year marks the 5th anniversary of them, I decided I should make a blog that compiles all of them.
Holy S**T, I uploaded so many screenshots in this dateRead more >
This is some kinda shorter statement about that thread, but there are some things that I have to say here.
So recently we've just launched the switch to bring staff-based management into this wiki. The reason for this is that in recent years, the wiki's user quality has deteriorated significantly, and a change is required to solve this.
We decided that it's necessary to bring staff-based management system here due to its tested-and-tried effectiveness in the past. Let me tell you that prior to 2013 we didn't have this fancy voting thing and everything was fine. No drama, no BS.
Staff members have approved this. Jack, SO456, MS, Shroomsta, and even AWB and Yappat, which aren't staff members (although the latter formerly was), agrees with this …Read more >
This was actually part of a test page but whatever. I'll leave it here. These are some interesting discoveries (or maybe not?) that I've found in "The Making of PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies" presentation hosted on Slideshare
- It appears that the sprites for the final version of the
plants, zombies and areas can be traced all the way back to version
0.92 released in Halloween 2007 (10 years ago, 1.5 years prior to
the game's release). This is proven by looking at slide 61 and 65.
- The lawn mower, however, was changed in version 0.93, as the screenshot for the Ice Level at slide 72 shows the final lawn mower sprite.
- Some of the ideas for the scrapped Ice Level have made its way
to PvZ2 (Zombie Yeti throwing snowballs, Hunter Zombie anyone?)
- Also, i…

I just found out this Youtube channel that has the exact same name as my current one, called The Chemist Zombie. I'm not sure whom this channel belongs to, but I'm pretty sure its someone from this wiki trying to impersonate me. The channel's link is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbsgVt8MmnxyY7CWgrGXTKw (notice that they don't have a unique username unlike mine)
This channel uses the GW2 chemist as the avatar (more specifically, the one used on chemist's infobox, as shown on the right), so I'm quite sure its someone from this wiki.
The real channel (which is mine) is http://youtube.com/thechemistzombie or http://youtube.com/theyetiprojectdtss so beware of fakes out there.
I still use the old RG logo as the avatar, but I'm planning to chang…Read more >
If you don't know what PvZ namespace page is, it's those pages that are used for help or informational pages like the rules or polls. I'm planning to add some more such as the wiki's FAQ (surprised no one ever thought of that) and a help page on how to properly deal with spammers/vandals (don't feed the trolls etc.)
Now I'm not sure if it has to go through vote first but I don't think it's necessary for such obvious things.
