Kirby (Nintendo 3DS)

Hey NerdyBoutKirby. I'm new on Kirby Wiki, and I was wondering, is there anyway you can let the Kirby Wiki staff know to update the page about Kirby (Nintendo 3DS)? Kirby, Kirby, Kirby! HnK StarRod 21:59, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

Vaati the Wind Demon and I are the only admins currently active. I've done all I can at the moment. NerdyBoutKirby Clu Clu Kirby 2 Wheeee 22:03, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

Master Sword

Hi, NerdyBoutKirby! I found some info about Kirby & the Amazing Mirror you might want to look at. The page is here, but specifically, I wanted you to look at the section that says, "Master". It explains the gem coloration and his hat, so I was wondering if you wanted to revise the "Trivia" section on the article.

Sure, tell about the prototype stuff. Can't hurt anything. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 22:52, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
              Oh...sorry, I didn't mean to confuse. I thought that it might explain as to why the gem was a green/blue-ish color in the offical artwork. The picture might've been made during the prototype's devolopment, and was just kind of...thrown into the final version's offical artwork. Thanks for replying, though.

Improvements

NerdyBoutKirby, why are you always re-editing every page I edit!? I don't mean to offend you, but it's really getting to me.WaddleDooFan77 Sworddoo.PNG Superb slicer! 12:54, October 25, 2013 (UTC)

As an admin/bureaucrat, it is my responsibility to ensure that articles and individual edits are proper. Many of yours are. When there are things to improve/correct, I see to it that those things happen. Oftentimes I'll find a different error on a page -- one that you did not create -- when patrolling, so I'll go right ahead and fix that.
Many people get attached to their writing and get offended when their contribution is changed. I've never really understood why; when your work is improved by another person, you should be grateful. After all, people reading the pages won't know who did what, anyway.
I wish you luck with your future edits. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 20:38, October 25, 2013 (UTC)

A Somewhat Important Decision

Hiya there Nerdy. I need your advice on something. Christmas is coming up, and I have a bit of a dilemma. You see,I was originally going to get the WiiU because of the new Super Smash Bros., but ever since that new Kirby game was announced, I decided I'm going to get a handheld...considering I can get not only the Triple Deluxe game, but also Super Smash Bros. 4. The problem is...do I get the 2DS or the 3DS? The 2DS is noticably cheaper...at least $139.99. However, I was led to believe that it was meant for little kids, and it doesn't have a flippy screen either.

Or, what about the 3DS? More expensive, but more practical (somewhat). I'd also be able to transfer data from my DSi to my 3DS.

So my real question...do I go with something cheaper that will pay off in the short run, or more expensive that will pay off in the long run? I only ask you this because my family isn't too big on Nintendo gaming, and you haven't let me down on anything yet.

Talk to ya' soon

Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 03:09, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

The 2DS was a dumb idea in my opinion. Everything about it sounds like a downgrade of the 3DS, except the slightly lower price... but it's still over $100, so it's not considerably cheaper. Not to mention it looks as big as the 3DS XL, but you can't close it to fit it in your pocket. The 3DS is the better option in my opinion -- it comes in purple if you like that. =]
I'm going to ask for gift cards for Christmas so I can purchase a Wii U. I have little motivation to do save up and buy it right now, since the only game I really like out of the bunch is New Super Mario Bros. U... that's just a game to tide me over til Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. Good luck getting the system of your choice. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 03:18, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm, I could care less about the color. I'm not even sure if it'll actually be a thing that I could get this year. So, it DOESN'T flip. Yeah thats pretty bad. Dust and dirt could get on the screen, whereas before closing it would prevent most of that from happening. I thought the 2DS was a joke at first until I actually saw a commercial for it. 3D games you can play in 2D? Why didn't they do that in the first place...?
I'll certainly look into getting a WiiU somewhere along the line, perhaps next year. I haven't heard of much great games for WiiU either, which discourages me even more as of right now. Thanks for your help,

Licensed Video Swap Tool

Hey there,NerdyBoutKirby. My name is Doug and I'm a member of Wikia's Community Development Team! Wikia has recently updated a new admin tool for videos called Licensed Video Swap. This is a new tool that allows admins to quickly swap embedded videos on your wiki from outside providers (such as Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc) to the same (or very similar) video that exists on Wikia Video. The benefit being that the videos hosted on Wikia Video are fully licensed and will never be removed for a licensing issues.

You can read about the updates to the tool on this staff blog. and I am available to help you if you would like any assistance switching any videos out on your wiki, it's your call. Thank you and have a good one!

I'm back!

Hey I recently got back to this Wiki, and I was gone because my family was moving to New Zealand. Anyways, I wanted to know, how do you archive things on your talk page? Also, can you make me a new signature? I'm thinking a Skully with the caption: Super Spooky! Anyways, thank you!

GreenKirby213 Frowning Kirby What did you say? 21:53, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

We'll see. I happen to be busy the next few days. Welcome back. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 22:01, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

Anything Else?

Hi there NBK! Ever since the Kirby 64 Project, I've been really hooked onto emulators. I currently have a Windows RT Surface and it comes with a bevy of emulators, mainly the Virtual Gameboy Color, Advance, and an SNES Emulator. My main question here is if there are any screenshots you would want me to acquire for the Wikia. I've tried looking in categories for poor quality images, but I havent managed to find any. If there are any screenshots you would want me to get, shoot me a link to the page and I'll get to work on it. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 01:15, November 27, 2013 (UTC)

Does your emulator play regular Game Boy games? Because we could really use enemies, mid-bosses, etc. from Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby's Dream Land 2. It should be enough to say "enemies, mid-bosses, bosses", but if you want more instructions, just ask. Thanks and good luck! NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 04:48, November 27, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, my Gameboy Color emulator can play Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby's Dream Land 2. I shouldn't need any instructions, unless you feel that I need them. I'll begin working on the screenshots soon, then! Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 11:56, November 27, 2013 (UTC)
For the original and the second Dream Land games, would you want a full screen capture of the game, or something similar like I did with Project 64? Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 21:47, November 27, 2013 (UTC)
For 2D platformers (or pretty much any handheld game), the entire screen is valuable. For examples, see any enemy article for KCC or KMA. Should be simple enough, eh? =] NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 22:33, November 27, 2013 (UTC)

Oh no, shouldn't be that hard at all. Considering the emulator is played in full screen, we needn't worry about anything unnecessary popping up in the background either. There might be some small black slivers from crops I messed up, but I'll try my hardest to be exact. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 02:44, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

Looks like I'm going to be having the laptop for awhile, and I have almost all the screenshots on the Surface. I really don't feel like slogging through the story mode twice on two different devices, and this message is only a heads up on what the plans are for the screenshots. See you around! Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 22:53, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

You're Really Quick!

You know, I've been kind of curious about this for a bit: How do you edit so many articals almost at the same time? A few minutes ago, a slew of articals edited by you said, "1 minute ago". You must work pretty fast!

KirbyRainboom (talk) 01:57, December 4, 2013 (UTC)


That was a case of paste & publish. I opened a bunch of articles in different tabs, pasted the change in each one, and rapidly published. It's not as impressive as it sounds, but thanks for the compliment. =] NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 02:13, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Quote Corner

Hey! I just want to ask what you think of the upcoming game. Also I wanted to ask: How do you add a new quote to "Quote Corner"? Thanks! WaddleDooFan77 Sworddoo.PNG Superb slicer! 20:08, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

I can't wait for Triple Deluxe! As for Quote Corner, I don't know how to add quotes. Sorry. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 22:14, December 12, 2013 (UTC)
OK. I saw the new villian Daranza and thought immediately "Fan art!" So, here is a custom made Daranza sprite! the black version is so you can see it better.
I hope you like them! WaddleDooFan77 Sworddoo.PNG Superb slicer! 22:07, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Smash

Chopinchamp (talk) 00:49, December 22, 2013 (UTC)Chopinchamp. But NerdyBoutKirby i just want everybody to get SOME info about the new Smash games. :( Everybody is put info about it. PLEASE LET ME DO IT! PLEASE!!!!!

But if I let you do that, other people would get it in their heads to spend 10 seconds making lackluster, half-baked articles. These are the most anticipated games of 2014, and should be handled by professionals. We don't have enough info about the games to make anything worthwhile yet. Sorry. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 17:45, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

You're Welcome!

I'm glad you appreciate it! I recently came back to this wiki (as you obviously noticed), and I noticed a huge amount of images lacking transparency, so... I thought "I'm not doing anything, why don't I fix these images?" So I did! I plan on continuing, too; at least until Kirby Triple Deluxe is released; at which point I'll switch to helping out fixing up the wiki to accommodate it (changes to characters/places, new characters/places etc.). I came back mostly for that, and then I took up my "side project". So again, I'm very glad you appreciate it, and Happy Holidays to you too! --Giokutalkuser 03:26, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

An Error and More Work

Hi there NBK! So, I've been encountering a glitch as of recently...(I'm not sure if you get this message, being Christmas Eve or if you celebrate another holiday, I myself will be taking a break today and part of tomorrow) Whenever I edit something, I get put straight into source mode. Not such a big deal, as I luckily learned some coding maneuvers. However, is there a way to fix this, or is it the permanent editing mode now?

Also, I noticed we are lacking some KNiD images, at least, I noticed we don't have any Nightmare. I'll get to work on that after the holidays. Happy Holidays! Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 17:03, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Hehe I saw that ya put that "aka Admiral Ackbar" kinda funny, but I was a-wondering if ya liked star wars 'n' if so do ya like the ewoks? Waddlekirby BroomhatterKNiDL Sweep, sweep.

Yes and sure. NerdyBoutKirby KBB Kirby sprite 3 Thank you and good night! 01:29, January 2, 2014 (UTC)

Information

Hi there. I recently discovered the Japanese site for the new Kirby game. I don't know whether anyone knew about it before, or they added new videos, but there is a lot of content on that site, most of it I added. Four trailers showcase the moves of those four new copy abilities. Circus Kirby even has a move that expands into a ball that looks similar to an old foe. Of course, we don't have pages for the abilities...would you like for me to add them to the Triple Deluxe gallery until the game comes out? Or would you like me to hold off? Thanks, Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 07:05, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Normally I'd say to hold off, but I'm not sure with this one. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say post them in the KTD gallery. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 20:27, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Super Smash Bros. 4 Screenshots

I noticed you added a couple of screenshots of King Dedede from SSB4, and there are a ton of screenshots of Kirby already; I thought about uploading a few of them earlier but I wasn't sure if we were going to do that... so do you mind if I go get a few of those? Thanks. --Giokutalkuser 00:30, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

You can if you want to, but I personally think one screenshot of each Smash Bros. game is enough. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 00:38, January 11, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I figured I'd just find two and that'd be OK. I'll get one for 3DS and one for Wii U, like you did with King Dedede. Thanks! --Giokutalkuser 00:54, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

Golden Wheelie Bike

You said I needed a source for my edit; sorry for not putting one in my edit directly, but I gave a link to a video in the Triple Deluxe talk page. Kirpow (talk) 02:57, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

How'd I do?

Well, it's about time for me to call it quits for today, but whew! What a day! ...it was just as hectic as you thought it would be! ...I think I managed to keep everything under control, and I even got some other stuff done, too! ...nobody made any new articles on anything, so that was good. We did have one vandal show up on top of everything, though, but it seems you took care of him. So, uh, just wanted to make sure I did alright! And, that's my report of the day, too. --Giokutalkuser 02:56, January 12, 2014 (UTC)

You did a tip-top job, Gioku. Thank you ever so much for patrolling (though I did a fair amount of that too -- Jimmy wasn't home, so I had no plans unfortunately). I'm just waiting for this KTD edit spree to subside so we can regain order. Until then, I'll be racking up Play Coins to buy some key chains! NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 06:08, January 12, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thank you! ...I think I'll be taking a bit of a break today, though, since I'm still tired out from yesterday! ...I'll still hang around today, but I won't work on stuff as much. Oh, and you may have noticed, but I added the Kirby: Triple Deluxe logo to Template:PortalLogo; and I started adding it to some relevant pages already. So just a heads up that it can be used now!

New Screenshots and Stuff

Hey, just found these two articles; the first one contains some new screenshots of Kirby: Triple Deluxe including the bottom screen. You should take a look at them and see if there are any that we could use! The other one is about how KTD has topped the Japanese sales charts! It's great that it's selling so well! So anyway, let me know your thoughts on those screenshots. --Giokutalkuser 18:41, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Excellent find, Gioku! I'm downloading the useful ones currently, and I'll upload them once I've finished cropping out unnecessary stuff (mostly just the bottom screen). Boy, have I got a TON of screenshots to upload. Could you handle a few for me? I'll need your email address if I'm going to send 'em to you, though.
I'm relieved that Kirby's doing well in the eastern market. Now we just have to pray his success continues in the west. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 21:33, January 15, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, I'm up for it! My email is funkeymaster@gmail.com. Just let me know what you want me to do with them! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 21:40, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

3DS MiiPlaza Puzzle Panels

Hey, I was just wondering about whether or not we wanted to document the Kirby puzzle panels from the StreetPass MiiPlaza/how we would want to document those. I've completed all three of them, so I can give detailed descriptions of them and/or try and get a screenshot of them. What do you think? --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 15:01, January 16, 2014 (UTC)

I've been meaning to write about those for months, but never got around to it! I'd love it if you typed about them for me. They should go in the Trivia sections of their respective pages: KRtDL to KRtDL, 20th Anniversary to KDCol, and the original Kirby puzzle (called the KDL puzzle for some reason) to KRtDL. I think that'd be the best way to handle them. Include images if you can acquire high quality ones.
Did you say you could directly screenshot them? In exact size? Please say yes! An 8-bit Magolor sprite appears briefly in the 20th Anniversary puzzle, and I've been trying endlessly to duplicate it in PhotoShop. There aren't any images online that will work. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 21:46, January 16, 2014 (UTC)
I don't actually have a 3DS screen capture device, unfortunately, but I have a camera that likes my 3DS screen; if I'm careful I can get pretty good quality, but it won't be perfect. I can at least do the descriptions if all else fails, though. --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 21:52, January 16, 2014 (UTC)
Hey so I've decided I'm gonna try to get this going this weekend, just a heads up!
--GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 02:48, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
Cool. Now that I think about it, we might not need images for them -- they are fairly minor. And don't worry about the Magolor sprite; the key chains in KTD showed me everything. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 03:08, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
I'll go ahead and get images, though; I'll just show them to you first and we can decide if they're good enough quality or not. I'll try my best to get them to look good (and up to community standards)! ...too bad there's no Mii Plaza Miiverse Community; that'd make this A LOT easier... but that'll be a big help when KT:D comes around; I'm quite positive it'll have a Miiverse community, which I will use quite a bit collecting screenshots! :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 03:18, February 7, 2014 (UTC)
Funny you should mention screenshots, I'm in a bit of a situation at the moment... but I'll give you the details later. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 03:39, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

OK, so here's the first one! The others are apparently too big of a file size to be uploaded, so I'm gonna have to fiddle with them a bit to get them so I can upload them. Overall, I'm happy with the quality I was able to pull off; they're a little bent around the edges, yes, but such is the nature of taking pictures. I think that they'll be of satisfactory quality to put on the articles! ...so I'll go fiddle a bit with the other ones to get their file sizes a bit lower. :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 21:39, February 9, 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Whispy Flowers

About the small quarrel we got into on that one talk page, I feel I need to have a word with you about it.

I'm really sorry that even had to start. I know it wasn't very big of an arguement, but I just wanted to let you know I didn't intend for it to turn into one. I didn't know that something was going on in your life personally, so I'm sorry for anything that I said that may have offended you. I hope you'll be okay in the end, whatever problem you may have. Skelly11 A Particularly Bad Frog Ask me stuff! 19:30, January 16, 2014 (UTC)

I forgive you. It'll all have been worth it if the discussion puts KTD article creation on lock-down until the game's English release.

just wondering. DeDeDe Devious (talk) 23:07, January 22, 2014 (UTC)DeDeDe Devious

That refers to how many bytes of data has been added/removed from a page. It's a quick way to judge what somebody may have done in an edit (and very large edits - either adding or deleting - are bolded so as to be even more noticeable). --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 23:46, January 22, 2014 (UTC)

How long does an RfA usually take?

Not to sound impatient or anything, but I'm curious as to how long RfAs usually take. Understandably, I've never done this before, so I'm not exactly sure what the timescale usually is on these. It just says "until sufficient time has passed", but do you have any idea how long it might be before I can expect to hear a resolution? ...I think I'm understandably curious, haha. Thanks! :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 17:28, January 25, 2014 (UTC)

You've got enough votes as of now, but your admin status won't come about until another admin changes your settings, documents the whole process, and files it away. Since (I think) I'm the only admin who knows how to do that stuff, it all hinges on when I have time to refresh myself and go through the one-hour process. I'll get to it, but please be patient.
Mine took about two weeks and Vaati's took roughly four months. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 17:56, January 25, 2014 (UTC)
OK, that sounds reasonable. I'm very happy that I'm in such a good standing, too! ...it has just now been a week since I put it in, so I will continue to be patient. I don't want to pressure you into it. But I do hope you have the time for it soon! :)

Key Chains

Heyyyyyyy long time no talk! First off let me say that this wiki is looking simply wonderful! You've done some great things since I took a backseat here. Never mentioned this and just wanted you to know. About the key chains, I would talk to Changtu. He's the formatting genius here. I have trouble visualizing it, but one column seems wayyyy too long-- you're absolutely right. 2 seems infinitely better, though perhaps having a display that extends across the width of the page might be a tad better than that even. EmptyStar (talk) 05:36, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

Oh and btw just so you don't think I'm a nut job who makes up words, sans is another word for without or except. Your phrasing is a better though anyway. Just thoght you should know that too haha. EmptyStar (talk) 05:38, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
My, I forgot how cheerful you are, Empty! =D It's a pleasure editing with you around. Thanks for the recommendation, I will talk with Changtau at once. See you around! NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 06:02, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
Oh wow. Thanks for that haha. No excuse for the collectible misspelling. Guess I'm too reliant on spellcheck haha. And ok, noted for the colon. Thanks for the corrections. EmptyStar (talk) 20:40, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

20,000 Edits? :O

...just thought I'd give you a little congratulations for hitting 20,000 edits...! I doubt I will ever have anything approaching that! You deserve lots more recognition for everything you do around here than you get! You're one of the wiki's most important editors; I dunno what this place would be like without you around!

So, congratulations again on 20,000 edits! :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 14:37, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, ditto. Congrats on hitting 20,000. Gioku's right, if you weren't here, heck, I'd have been banned or something from my earlier edits...you know, because of adding theories and such to articles! Also, we wouldn't have any of those neat K:64 screenshots!! Heh... Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 20:00, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, guys. It feels good to keep improving the site. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 22:32, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

Articles based on file names

We need to clarify within these articles what the file names actually are to justify that template. Maybe the reference section is best. Changtau2005
KirbyKSSUwalk Poyo! 16:55, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, sure. For my future pages, could you please give me a brief list of file names (like the one seen in Shipwreck Octopus)? I haven't seen the exact code myself, so I'll need the exact files. I'm in need of
  • Statue
  • Bite Statue
  • Bomb Machine
  • Strike Box
Alternatively, could we just type the model file name in the reference section as we did with Invisibility Stone? NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 22:31, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

I'm (sort of) back

Hey, so, even though my computer is still dead at the moment, there are a few options still for getting on here every once in awhile (like right now), so if there are any pressing things that need to be done I can get them done for you (anything other than getting new screenshots, unfortunately)! ...but anyway, I can probably get on about twice a day or so, in which time I can do whatever projects are currently needed.

...and also, it's been more than two weeks now; time for me to bug you about the RfA again! ...I'm kidding, of course. :P

...let me know if there's anything I can get done! :)

Of Starships and Starshooters

Hey! Just so you know, the source for the "Shooting" name is indeed right on the pause menu of the original SNES (English) cartridge. Unless it comes from some other version of the game, the term Star Chariot is nowhere to be found. LinkTheLefty (talk) 04:24, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. That's all I needed to know. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 04:28, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

K:TD Soundtrack Setup

Hi. It's recently been brought to my attention that a user on YouTube has begun to upload soundtracks from K:TD. I'm not sure if all the tracks are indeed on there, however. If you want a quick link to it, scroll to the bottom of K:TD's page and the link should be hard to miss. I suppose you could start building up the Soundtrack page, although I think that we should wait until the game is internationally released before we start uploading music, but in the end it's your move. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 18:47, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

Just so happens that I know a bit about how the music templates and such work around here; if it's all right with you NBK I can get that stuff going for you. :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 18:50, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
I can help by grabbing all the links of the videos he currently has, then uploading them the User Talk page of whoever's going to be working on this. foreverkirby (the YouTube user) seems to have all of the overworld/world themes, Kirby Fighter's themes, boss themes, etc. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 18:56, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
Well, since it's not a pressing matter, if we get the go-ahead I can probably put together everything this weekend sometime. And if you can get me the links like you said, Meta Kirby, that'd be extra helpful! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 19:29, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
Woah woah woah, one at a time, please. We don't have Changtau to rely on for this stuff any more, and someone will have to do it eventually... but with all the track names currently unreliable/unknown, we really should wait. Thanks for volunteering when the time comes. =]
Something you guys should know about me is that I prefer to talk to people one at a time and answer questions early in conversation. And, well, this reply was the fifth. You two didn't do anything wrong, but please allow me to respond to messages before interjecting -- otherwise I feel a bit swamped with information. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 21:21, February 5, 2014 (UTC)
OK, sorry about that. :)
...but I will be working on this in my workshop, just so you know. It can be complete-ish as is, but yeah, the titles are kinda iffy still at this point. But if I get it set up now, it can easily be fixed later. :)

Automated Welcome Message

Would you mind terribly if I turn the automated welcome messages back on? I like that feature a lot, and it seems it was only disabled because the user that was used in the messages ('Wikia') no longer exists. I'd like to redesign it and turn it back on. I think it's a nice little thing to welcome new users to the wiki. I would have just gone ahead with it, but I was not sure if there was some other reason that it got turned off that I was unaware of. Thanks! :)
--GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 01:17, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

You've done more noteworthy things in one month than I've done in five years. Turn it on, bro. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 06:01, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
Aw, thanks! I feel so appreciated around here! :) I just wanted to make sure there wasn't some other reason why it was disabled. Thank you! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 18:26, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

Youtube

{I'm double posting this on both Nerdy's and Gioku's talk pages}

I don't use Youtube that much so I didn't know about this before, but it seems that I can set up to 50 people as managers for the wiki's Youtube account. That will both give you guys full access to change/modify/reupload/delete (please no =p) the videos I've put up in the past, as well as upload new ones to the same account. The only thing a manager cannot do that the account owner can is deleting the account or adding new managers - that's about it.

I think this will keep all the videos in one place so management is not segmented - i.e. I really don't like the fact that only I can change the descriptions of the videos right now, for instance, and it makes it easier for people to find. Gioku's handling the Triple Deluxe tracks, and if someone else does another game -- management gets gnarly pretty quickly.

What do you guys think? Would you like access to it to upload new tracks and change stuff? You'll need a Google+ account to do that but to use Youtube nowadays you already need to do that.

Changtau2005
KirbyKSSUwalk Poyo! 15:10, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps. Besides viewing videos, I've never used YouTube before, so I dunno how useful I'd be. I also, uh, don't know much about Google+ (don't be mistaken, I do have an account, but I only use it for gmail). If you can add someone named Lee Thompson-Kolar (me), go right ahead. =] Thanks for the invitation! NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 19:13, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I searched for that username, didn't get any results. I know it's really confusing, but I think you need to link your gmail account to Google+ before Google lets me find your account. I read through the tutorials, it says Google+ accounts only on both ends; the account holder and the managers.
Don't worry too much about it though if you don't want to link them or it's too confusing - it took me about an hour to figure out there's my Youtube account, my Gmail account, and then my Google+ account, and you have to link those thingies in different ways (whooh head spin). Changtau2005

RE: Appearances

What your asking is something only a few select dedicated users can do, I feel. Before you get angry, or otherwise confused, please let me explain. For one, not all of us have played through all of the Kirby games. We're not pros like you, heh, that have played most of the Kirby games. I just feel that you'll be doing most of the work, cleaning up any missing games that new users will undoubtedly leave out, or mistakenly include. I'll try to help out where I can.

Here is a question about the procedure itself; For characters that had only one appearance (Like Zero) would it still be necessary to add that section? Yes, common sense should prevail on this, but I like to be sure. Thanks, Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 02:44, February 23, 2014 (UTC)

I suppose one appearance does not warrant an appearance section (which is why we don't include a sprite section for characters with only one sprite, for example). I only extended an invitation, my friend; I'm not expecting anybody to do anything, just setting out some tips if anyone were to aid me on my quest. Heck, next time I won't even announce my personal goals since doing so is apparently met with contempt. =|
But thank you for your interest, regardless. Have a good night. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 04:33, February 23, 2014 (UTC)
Oh...I see. If that's the case I'll start up on the more simpler pages when I get the chance. Good luck,
Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 16:14, February 23, 2014 (UTC)

Housekeeping, etc.

First of all, please excuse my relative absence the last few days; I've been a bit busy and limited as to how often I can get on here. I'll hopefully get to be a bit more active these next few days!

Anyway, since we've got about two months still until K:TD comes out, now is a perfect time to do some cleanup/housekeeping/UI improvements (like my sprites project). I've got several little projects in addition to the sprite organizer that I'd like to do during these tow months we've got before we go new information-crazy again!

First of all, though, would you still like me to fiddle with the enemy infobox template? We can get the appearances thing done first, that'll be a breeze if we can do it with PortalLogos in the infoboxes. So get back to me on that as soon as you can; I'll have a look at the templates in the meantime. Ciao! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 01:18, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, please work on that infobox thing soon. We may also want to copy the anime appearances part from the Copy Ability infobox as well. What other projects were you planning? NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 01:27, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
Here we go! I used Sir Kibble as our first example. The new games section I added works exactly the same way as the item infobox. So that should make things look nicer and clean up the pages a bit. :)
...and by other little projects, I just mean little maintenance stuff. Nothing too big, but stuff I won't have time to do once KTD is out. --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 01:42, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
Excellent work, Gioku! Now all we have to do is manually replace the appearances in each enemy, boss, and mid-boss article, taking care not to miss any appearances! =D I can handle a lot of this myself, I'm running out of stuff to do here, anyway.
Til then, might I trouble you to upload some KA screenshots for me? That is the only game I openly hate uploading screenshots of, because of the millions of alternate palettes the enemies have. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 01:49, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Glad I could help! ...as for screenshots, I really can't do any of that until I get a new Hard Drive for my laptop. But that should be soon, though, and I will be happy to collect more screenshots! :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 16:22, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
I'll send you an email containing them as soon as I can. If your computer is the problem, I would recommend you not open it til you have the new hard drive. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 22:55, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, you've already got them for me? In that case I can do that; I thought you meant that I needed to get them myself! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 02:17, February 28, 2014 (UTC)

Hey

Just a thought -- replacing the first and last appearances with only the icon deletes information about the character's presence in time. The fields used to read like {Title} (year). Changtau2005
KirbyKSSUwalk Poyo! 14:56, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
True. I have given it plenty of thought, and this is the best way we can solve the issue of missing appearances -- typing a lengthy list of appearances felt unnecessary and redundant, and characters with unchanging behaviors didn't benefit from having each game as a section. Copy Abilities and items have been organized this way for as long as I can remember, so I'm not introducing a new concept. Besides, the games' chronology is documented in full on the list of Kirby games; anyone who wants to know a game's exact year can find it with relative ease.
Thanks for pointing out the flaw. I feel it's a sacrifice that needs to be made. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 22:50, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

  Thank you. :) Kirbot Wheelie riderWheelie Rider 19:38, March 4, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, someone just made a Black Dedede page, could you see if it needs fixing or deletion?

I delete 'em on sight. Rest assured, we won't be plagued with premature KTD articles. =] NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 19:12, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
Speaking to everyone, here's a thought: if we don't make ANY Triple Deluxe articles now, don't you think it'll be a pain to make them all at once when the game comes out? Obviously we aren't obligated to make them all the day of, but I think you know what I mean. It won't be a huge deal, but I personally think it saves a bit of effort to, say, make articles like "Paintra" or "Hypernova" before the game comes out, considering we already know everything about those things. IGet the few things we already are sure about out of the way so when the game does come out, there's less immediate work. I'm sure the majority of who reads this will disagree with me, but I just thought I'd voice my opinion. I won't go making any articles myself. Kirpow (talk) 23:16, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
It's good that you voiced your opinion and all, but I don't think anyone will agree with you. Either way, the articles are still going to have to get churned out. If we make them now, with the untranslated data, then we're going to have to go back to those articles and correct them. It's easier to make complete and accurate articles rather than making shabby and incomplete articles and having to clean them up later. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 23:41, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
Meta Kirby is correct, creating the pages now actually creates more problems than waiting. I've explained everything in the Community Corner, as well. --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 23:48, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
What translated data do you need to know how Paintra works? She's a boss, so all her article would need is her attacks, which are easily accessible on YouTube through several videos. With Hypernova, you just need to list how it changes Kirby's playstyle, as it's an ability, and those changes are also accessible the same way. Those two pages, at least, can be made complete with the footage available. I understand that some articles may have to be churned out, but churning out a few between now and May seems like less work than doing all of them after then. Kirpow (talk)
If you would like your own personal workshop like Gioku and I have, it might help you get the anticipation out of your system and onto the wiki. Just don't officially publish anything until KTD is released. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 00:45, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
I would do that, NerdyBoutKirby, but I feel it'd be a waste if I do and then after I publish them, they're "cleaned up" and more or less changed from what I originally made. I'd really appreciate it if I made my own workshop and you guys, or anyone who can, gave me feedback on the pages, so I can publish them when the time comes and there's as little need for "churning" as possible. Kirpow (talk) 00:52, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
Stressing out about "churning" doesn't do anyone any good. Just relax. =) The pages will all get made eventually -- that's the important thing. There's no due date for all the KTD articles, so they'll be made as people decide to make them.
Til then, I highly recommend you hop on the workshop train. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 00:57, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
That's a good point. The people on this website are trustworthy, and May 2nd is more than a month away anyways. That workshop train seems like a fun ride, so think I just might hop on, thanks. Kirpow (talk) 01:03, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

Background Error

Hiya there! I was wondering if you were encountering any problems with the background. On my screen, it shows at least three different Kirbys, all phased within one another, and Ribbon has an extra wing. If you or anyone else isn't encountering this problem, then I suppose I won't let it bother me too much. Thanks, Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 02:46, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

KSSU palettes

Hey! Long time no see! Sorry, I was in Moscow, and I didn't have my laptop. Any way, it has come to my attention that a lot of the pages for enemies/Helpers don't show all the alternate palettes. Therefore, I have done a lot of palette swapping using this sprite sheet , and have come up with alternate palettes for most of the enemies. My hands are getting tired, and I have other things to do, so I did not get all the enemies. I will complete them later. Based on TCRF , and the fact that I have KSSU, some of these palettes are never used in-game. Here they are:

Alternate palettes max





In order, they are:

-Burning Leo (alternate palette)

-Burning Leo (unused)

-Jungle Bomb (unused)

-Rocky (alternate palette)

-Rocky (unused)

-Chilly (unused)

-Gim (unused)

-Gim (alternate palette)

-Wheelie (alternate palette)

-Wheelie (alternate palette)

-Knuckle Joe (alternate palette)

-Knuckle Joe (unused)

If you can, please format and post these. Thanks!

WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 20:33, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

Just one problem: These unused palettes only existed in the KSS data, not KSSU. While those would be accurate to KSS, they aren't really a part of KSSU in any way. I admire how hard you're working on all these, but they can't really go in the sprite sections -- it would be lying to say you found them in KSSU's ROM. I hope you understand. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 21:07, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
Ok. However, the palettes shown below ARE used in Milky Way Wishes.
Milkywaypalettes


None of these palettes are shown on the character's respective pages. Could you add them? Thanks!
Oh, and I'm not too sure about this one:
Wheeliemilky


I think it may be used in Skyhigh , in the Wheel Essence room, but I don't have my DS right now, so I can't tell for sure. Please consider adding these. Once again, thanks! WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 17:06, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
Excuse my "butting in" NBK; but if these ones are real (I'm not exactly sure myself), I can format them if you don't want to. --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 17:15, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. But first, I think you should double-check with the actual game. I have seen all these palettes here:
Burning Leo-Hotbeat
Jungle Bomb-Floria
Gim-Cavios
Knuckle Joe-Aqualiss
Wheelie-Floria
I'm not an admin, so I won't post these without permission. Please have a look at these planets in Milky Way Wishes and check. WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 17:24, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I've finished processing all that. Gioku, if you would like to format said alternate palettes, be my guest. NerdyBoutKirby KorribleHas a PhD in adorableness. 22:00, March 26, 2014 (UTC)

Workin' in my shop

HI! I've started my own Workshop! I'm writing this to ask for permission to make an article on Para Sorceress. For my reasons, see Talk: Drawcia. If you say yes, can I please have a revised Para Sorceress artwork? the one we have is very grainy compared to the other Kirby: Canvas Curse artwork we have. Thanks!

WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 18:35, April 8, 2014 (UTC)

I hate to burst your bubble, but there's really not a lot to be said about Para Sorceress. It would almost certainly be a stub article.
