Top of page links[edit]

Hello! Have you ever noticed that the links at the top of your user page don't work? -- Numbermaniac - T - C 07:00, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Oh, yes. I noticed them now that I looked at them. It's likely from a failed experiment (^͜_^*) . Thanks for pointing it out. -- Bb 20 (Edits) 21:22, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. If you had copied them from Kanegasi's user page, they work on his because he has those pages at User:Kanegasi/nav and User:Kanegasi/info. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 01:24, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Right on that one you are. Fancy; I'm starting to see how that works now. -- Bb 20 (Edits) 01:30, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Cool. Also, replies aren't usually minor edits. Minor edits are when you do minor changes like spelling, grammar, punctuation, or even your cleanup at Hardware performance. :D -- Numbermaniac - T - C 01:36, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Good tip! Also, with that option "Mark all edits minor by default" turned on, it likely won't help much if I keep scanning past it's checkbox before saving my changes :3. Thought I had that guy turned off. -- Bb 20 (Edits) 01:46, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Links on your user page[edit]

Hello! (Again :P)

Anyway, the links for your talk page and Hardwaree performance can be formatted with double square brackets, so you don't need the beginning of the link. Wat I mean is... [[Hardware performance]] instead of the full link. And also [[User talk:Bb 20]] for your user talk. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 06:50, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Fixed up the coding! Glad you could help point out these things for me :) -- Bb 20 (Edits) 07:19, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome! Just in the way you had all edits minor, my settings watch every page I edit. S your user and talk page are in my watchlist, lol. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 07:22, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
A second pair of eyes is quite helpful! -- Bb 20 (Edits) 07:41, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Hardware performance[edit]

I added those comments add [[Hardware performance/create]]. Should those comments be there? I added them as a simple "tutorial" of each parameter. –- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 02:47, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

I believe that the examples that I edited for [[Hardware performance/intro]] and in Hardware_performance#Computer_specifications already do justice for users in explaining what goes where. I'm afraid it would add something awful to clutter though.-- Bb 20 (Edits) 02:56, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
So shall I remove those comments? –- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 02:58, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. Not that it was a bad idea though. On an unrelated note, to make editing easier for now, how about creating a '== Results for 1.5 - 1.5.1 ==' section where older results can be "archived"(moved) but won't show up in the '== Results ==' area when being edited. Thoughts? -- Bb 20 (Edits) 03:06, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
I like the idea. Would you like to do? Because I have to go. –- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 03:10, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Yep, I'll give it a go. -- Bb 20 (Edits) 03:12, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Hardware performance 1.6[edit]

I created a new [[Hardware performance/Archive 6]] to store all the 1.5 results. Now the main page only has the 1.6 results. :) t numbermaniac c 02:10, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Good of you to clean up the page. Bit of an issue though as recent results are creating their own category and I'm not sure how to fix it. Would you be able to do that? -- Bb 20 (Edits) 20:35, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Fixed. There was a missing opening wikinote part. Kanegasi C 21:36, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Ah, the smallest things. Much appreciated! -- Bb 20 (Edits) 21:56, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
I knew I would mess up something, thanks for the help both of you. t numbermaniac c 00:10, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Unnecessary underscores[edit]

You don't need the underscores in the middle of links on your userpage; just replace them with spaces. I assume you're back at home now? :) t numbermaniac c 05:04, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

I was going to say, the only underscore on my userboxes in my Twitter name, lol. It has been done and they are gone. Also, permission granted to fix up those kind of things on my page and make a note of it afterwards. And yes, I'm home. I came back last Saturday actually. I missed a tornado by 60km, how about that? -- Bb 20(Edits) 05:25, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Ooh, that was lucky, 60km... wow. And thanks for the permissions! :) Also, on an unrelated subject, how do you get the minecraft server to work? I made a static IP, even registered at no-ip.org for a url there, but my friend can't join it. t numbermaniac c 06:18, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Pretty close indeed, though I've been straight under forming funnels too, which was an awesome sight! So, for the server..port-forwarded 25566 on my modem and router (I had to DMZ my desktop because it refused to work otherwise), start up the no-ip DUC client, but nothing fancy otherwise except double checking the firewall so that Java can get through. My PC is off for the night so specifics I can't get ATM as to how things are configured. -- Bb 20(Edits) 06:35, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm thinking it could be the firewall. Every time my friend joins it gives a time out error. I think the problem is that I may have not port forwarded it. I went to my modem's settings and assigned port 25565 to my home computer, but clearly that doesn't work. Unless it's the firewall. The modem's one is off, but the computer's one is on. t numbermaniac c 06:42, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
You should be able to check if the port on the modem is open by checking it online. Also, I gave my PC a static IP so that it didn't accidentally change and the port-forwarding would become unless because the modem couldn't send the packets to a computer that wasn't at such-and-such IP address. Just a thought, hopefully that's not what you meant earlier by static IP when I was just thinking you meant a no-ip IP address. -- Bb 20(Edits) 06:59, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
No, I did give my computer a static ip, and I set up a no-ip address, but it doesn't work. I will check the firewall when I get on the computer.t numbermaniac c 08:33, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

HDD model...[edit]

There used to be a command that you can type in command prompt to get the computer's drive model... where did that go? -- t numbermaniac c 22:01, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

[[Hardware performance/intro]], at the top of the page, you'll find it there. -- Bb 20(Edits) 22:04, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Why did I miss that..? *facepalm* -- t numbermaniac c 22:12, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Lol. Perhaps you were expecting to see it further down. -- Bb 20(Edits) 22:16, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, probably. :) -- t numbermaniac c 22:30, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

I fixed it, finally[edit]

You edited conflict an unknown edit, I fixed it.. Thanks anyway. --Shadow1033 22:32, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Fixed it by removing the 2.5 gb option. Thanks.. --Shadow1033 22:49, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

After reading the bottom of your page...[edit]

Can these options be changed in the Nvidia Graphics Control Panel? After seeing what looks like 600+ FPS... hmm. -- t numbermaniac c 05:41, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Indeed they can! I have more combinations of tests to run with different settings.. but what will matter the most are percentile performance increases, which seem decent already, without any overclocking! -- Bb 20(Edits) 16:06, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! I was thinking of overclocking my computer, but the BIOS is locked... :(. I shall have a look at the settings in my graphics panel when I get on my computer. Only I've forgotten how to open it lol. -- t numbermaniac c 22:11, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Depending on your machine, you could install an unlocked BIOS. I've done that on previous machines. Requires flashing, of course, so could be fatal, lol. Hope that helps though. Nvidia Control Panel can be accessed from the desktop context menu or the Control Panel. I have quite a bit of testing to do still.. Take some results while you're at it, if you can :) -- Bb 20(Edits) 22:16, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Oh, and I edited your page a bit to fix some things. -- t numbermaniac c 22:27, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Good stuff! I'm going to set up a table for those results next; make them pretteh. -- Bb 20(Edits) 22:30, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Regarding hardware performance[edit]

Based on your recent edit, I had removed the instructions, as they were not required in an archive. The archive was simply to archive results in past versions, not how to added more results to the list. I mainly did it based on the style of the archives of the issues page.

The instructions can likely be trimmed down to simply state the settings used, rather then how to add your entry. --KnightMiner (t|c) 03:59, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about that, you're absolutely right. It's pretty late for me and I thought I didn't copy the page in it's entirety like I wanted to previously. Didn't see your edit after mine or realize that I could have trimmed it during the first copy operation. Thanks for pointing this out; I've corrected this by doing a revert and adding the warning label in the edit after your last one. -- Bb 20(Edits) 04:15, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it's a little late for me as well... I may later see about adding an abbreviated form of the instructions simply stating the settings used. --KnightMiner (t|c) 04:33, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
I think that would be a good idea. As it goes, I'm going to continue to update the HW perf page for 1.8 and update the instructions as well. Also noticed you did a few other edits, of my doing or otherwise ... thank you for potentially cleaning up some of my mess, lol. If you have any other suggestions for me on later edits to these pages then make a note of them for me ;) -- Bb 20(Edits) 04:49, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Alright --KnightMiner (t|c) 12:44, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
