  • I would like to understand better your reasoning for undoing my edit on the "Uber" page, which is "5 gag ubers has too much laff and good enough gags to be considered an uber". If 52-57 laff is too much laff, then we should also remove Cashbot, Reverse Ubers and Semis. The "good enough gags" I don't really understand, as an Uber is a toon with maxed gags, which 5 track ubers have. 5 track ubers fall under the "low laff, high gags" definition. Considering all this, I don't really understand why you would be against putting 5 track ubers in the page, specially since I post them in the "Unconventional Ubers" section.

    I look forward to your answer. And I hope I'm posting this in the right place, as I'm more familiar with regular wikis (which usually have talk pages for each page, and I could not find that anywhere), and not Fandom ones. If this is the wrong place, feel free to direct me to the right one. Thanks.

    • Hey! Firstly welcome to the wiki! 

      Also this is the right place to put stuff like this.

      As for my edit - The main reason why I undid your edit is that I personally go by the Coach Z definition of Uber: So 2 gags - 4 gag ubers. 5 gag ubers (Forgot the specific amount) but with 5 gags, an Uber could be able to tank better Cog attacks into the point where I personally consider their laff too high.

      As for Cash/Law Ubers. I do personally agree that I don't outright consider them but another user (Yokare) added most of the content onto that page.

      Thank you for your message!

    • hi there.

      i wrote a majority of our current Uber page and did the research behind Ubers and their history in order to contribute to that page. our justificaiton behind including the four unconventional Uber types we have (Cashbot ubers, Tanks, Reverses and Semis) is that they are backed up by the Toontown community at large - some of them for more than a decade (cashbots, tanks and reverses mainly). it was decided to include these on the page not because we are defining that they exist - but because they already exist, are commonly discussed and defined under some form of the 'uber' moniker, and therefore require documentation. my original overhaul of that page was done in response to dozens of players asking every day in TTR communities what semis, or semi-reverse ubers, were. they exist - there are plenty of them, and they have a very clearly defined concept that has been proven many times over, and so they needed a space on the wiki to provide information for those who were asking for it consistently.

      5-gag ubers, on the other hand... aren't a thing. yes, they may have been made, and maybe even discussed, but for a very long time the community at large has established that 5-gags are *not* ubers, and do not fall into any unconventional uber territory, since quite frankly, a 5-gag uber is more or less just an average overtrained toon. this does not mean you cant make a 5-gag uber, you can make any kind of toon you want! but any form of unconventional playstyle needs to have repeated, consistent and well-understood history to make its place on a wiki page. similarily, 'perfect ubers' or 'perfect 120s' were rejected from the page's overhaul due to the community at large deciding they were not ubers. the wiki exists to document info that already exists, not to create information where there is none. we will not be permitting any future additions under the 'uber' name unless they have the history and culture to back them up - semis were only pushed into the mainstream rather recently, so its entirely possible for another uber playstyle to make its way in. once this happens, we will add them to that page if deemed appropriate.

      i hope this clears things up. for transparencys sake, i was asked by our wiki admins to respond to you, as the Uber page is more or less managed by me.

    • I understand the reasons better now, specially regarding how mainstream they are. But I was just under the impression that the "Unconventional Ubers" section actually was for any obscure Uber type, not the "mainstream" ones, as it says "These are types of Ubers that are technically classed under Uber or use the Uber moniker, but are considered unconventional and sometimes even controversial." and, personally, this reads to me "these are Ubers by definition, but don't fall under the original conception of the Uber term"... And 5 track ubers would fall under that. It may be helpful to maybe add some clarification either in that section, or elsewhere, that the "types of Ubers" list only accounts for the more common types.

      5 track ubers do exist, but not many, I'll admit. I was hoping that by adding it to the wiki I would add more awareness regarding them. The only people other than me that I know that have 5 track ubers are CCG members, and it seems like this new uber type isn't widely known or accepted. But anyway, as that section actually is just for the main ones, I see why that shouldn't be added.

      Thanks for the responses. I was really just hoping for more clarification as I revived my Fandom account just to add that little info and I saw it being reverted.

    • you're not entirely wrong with that assessment - but the 'unconventional' section is intended to be just as objective as the 'conventional' section, but the two had to split due to constant debates between whether things like "semis" even count as "ubers". we did not wish to make an entire seperate page for them, and they are fully named "semi-reverse ubers", hence they (and the other three unconventional ubers) were moved to a seperate section to distinguish them from sellbot ubers, which are considered more or less to be "THE uber", if that makes sense! when someone says "i saw an uber today" 99% of the time they mean a sellbot uber, whereas for tanks/reverses/semis someone is much more like to say "i saw a tank today" or "i saw a reverse today" - this is anecdotal in some regard but has been language i've observed over the past 15~ years. i will examine if it needs further clarification, since ubers are kind of a weird topic to wiki-fy anyway (they 100% exist but they exist entirely subjectively) i'll have to see what i can do haha.

      i understand the reasoning behind wanting to establish a new type of uber! but in this case, the wiki would not be the place to establish something. you would need to establish this type of uber elsewhere in the community (facebook, twitter, discord, CCG, ATTA, MMOCF, etc) and then if it were to gain traction and be adopted in the common community to the point people are asking what it is, then it can be observed on the wiki. this is what happened with semis! they started within a very small subset of the ttr community and started to bleed into the mainstream community, and then more and more people with no association with that group were making semis, and only THEN did they earn a spot here.

      i hope that makes sense and clears up some misconceptions! i 100% empathize with the feeling of having your change reverted - understand its not you! the uber page in particular gets edited quite frequently with anecodtes or information thats simply too subjective. in any case, if 5 gag ubers do (finally) make it into the mainstream meta, ill be more than glad to add them to the page ^^ thanks for understanding!

    • Wikia only allows 10 pages per subtitle so its impossible to add Deer and Crocodile to that without missing one or another.

      That being said Dyna and I did talk about adding Toontown Species Election as the 10th link as it would cover Deer and Crocodile but I don't know for sure.

    • Oh I did not even notice that Crocodile was missing too. That makes sense now.

        Loading editor
    • Should be pretty much done now. :)

      If TTR adds new species, I can probably just add them to that same last slot at the bottom. A decent temporary fix.

      Now what to do when we get more than 10 years of News Blogs? Hmm...

  • Hello! I am Lucky Biscuit. I am a fellow Toontown Rewritten Player. I have a question. I can't go into the phase files or download them so I wanna know if you can help me by sharing some Clothes Files (Both Shirts and Pants, Like Flippy's Outfit, Toon Trooper Outfit, Etc.) through a simple comment on the Message Wall as a PNG. If you can do that then that would be great! Thank you.

    Sincerely, Lucky Biscuit.

    • I... don't know how to extract Shirts in TTO/R.

      There should be some pictures on Google?

    • Wow, you posted on 7 different people's Message Walls (with a few tiny variations in some). I think I'll put my main answer on MY wall.

      tl;dr: You could learn to extract them yourself.[1][2] If for some reason this won't work for ya, I hope someone helps you out. I don't have time to post the files here myself though.

      Only a few pages here seem to have the texture maps from the Phase Files.[3][4][5] That might help a LITTLE, but I doubt you'll find everything on there as-is. Not everything is as refined as Trolley Tracks.[6] Good luck.

  • Boy, this was no vandal attempt. I purposely linked "Event Grounds" when I fixed the page because there is more than one ToonFest event, and that's what the tunnel to the area is called.
