Stubs

Hi, I understand that you're worried about new users making stubs, but I'm having difficulty seeing the problem with stubs at all. They pose no threat to the wiki and can easily be expanded upon, and they're more useful than blank pages from red links. If we delete a page that a new user creates simply because it's a stub, that discourages the userbase by making them feel as though their edits serve no purpose, and keeps new users from making edits in the first place. Also, your talk page is getting quite large; I think an archive is in order (you can keep this section on the page and archive the rest). BNK [E|T|C] 00:34, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

You make valid points. I just feel that a page should look, I dunno, adequate at the very least. Many times editors will make a stub and never return to it, thinking their job is done. Wikia is all about editing and improving things, I get that. But those who hire a maid often cause more messes than those who don't, simply because they know the maid will clean up any mess they make. Intentionally creating a stub and saying, "That's good enough," is a statement of irresponsibility. I don't expect perfection out of the community, but yikes, some of these guys could at least try.
Some of the stubs I've been seeing have been devoid of images and only stated a couple sentences of obvious information (i.e. XXX is a boss in KTD, he's fought in YYY Land, END) that was retrieved from the Kirby: Triple Deluxe article. Gamers reading the stub won't find its content useful because there's so little they can learn from it. We barely benefit from it because the (tiny) info was there to begin with and would take 45 seconds to retype. In the time it takes to correct one stub, three more can be created; if we aren't careful, KTD will become infested with them. If we accumulate too many grammar-free stubs, we'll look sloppy and unprofessional to passerbys. We don't want that, do we?
Those are only my observations, however. Altogether, it is a worthy discussion. On a separate note, how exactly does one archive a talk page? NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 01:41, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

I see where you're getting, but as for leaving them not edited, there is a page listing all articles that are stubs that people can go to in order to add info. Plus, it allows multiple people to create the page and elaborate on it instead of having only one person do the majority of the page on a workshop. However, I do see what you mean by the whole passerby thing and that what is usually typed up doesn't take long to replicate. Also, by including that the content from these stubs comes from Kirby: Triple Deluxe, people might understand that it's simply just a new game that hasn't had many people to edit and create articles for. Iqskirby (talk) 02:10, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Fair enough. I suppose it doesn't hurt to disallow the creation of pages that are sure to be stubs for the sake of keeping congestion to a minimum. I like to think that readers have a little more patience, and I don't think that users create stubs to leave them in that state for all intents and purposes. As an admin that hasn't been here in a while and given how well you've kept up the Wiki, I feel your input supersedes mine in this case. As for archiving, don't worry about it, I've already created the page. But for future reference, to archive a page, create an archive sub-page (i.e. User talk:NerdyBoutKirby/Archive X) and move all or most of the content to it, then add the link to it on your emptied talk page. BNK [E|T|C] 05:42, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, man. I'll be sure to archive on my own in the future. =) NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 19:41, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Overbooked?

It seems like you have a lot to do on this wiki, considering you and Meta Kirby are the only active admins on this wiki, and Meta Kirby's new. I will be glad to help you guys if I can. Doos Rock! -Therater2 (talk) 12:19, June 9, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not an admin yet, but any help will be greatly appreciated. I'd recommend checking out the Activity page occasionally and un-doing or otherwise revising seemingly sketchy or poorly written words/paragraphs. That's usually what I do unless I notice something more important or NBK assigns me something. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 19:12, June 9, 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I'll try to help! Also, the wiki needs more KTD articles, which I will try to make in my Workshop. Doos Rock! -Therater2 (talk) 20:29, June 9, 2014 (UTC)

Royal Road Variation

I see you've done a lot of work with Coily Rattler there and I want to congratulate you. You've done a great job with it. However, unfortunately there is still something lacking: when encountering a boss in Royal Road, its attack pattern is different than the original version. You going to add a section for that or just leave it be for now? Iqskirby (talk) 22:33, June 9, 2014 (UTC)

I didn't notice a difference. Is there one? There's only so much info we can throw at the reader... NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 03:14, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, the bosses act differently. For example, Coily Rattler goes strait into the roll attack, Kracko starts with lightning, Paintra starts shooting paint blobs and obscuring the screen, etc. You don't seem to be the happiest about this, I understand Iqskirby (talk) 10:56, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

I've already put the information on Royal Road's page. It'd be tedious and unnecessary to put it on every bosses page. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 19:04, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

Rainbow Curse

Although I wasn't around at the time KTD was released in Japan, I still feel like that's going on again. Today Kirby and the Rainbow Curse has been added as a page. I set it up for candidates for deletion, seeing what little info exists and that it hasn't even been released. However, the page is still there and it seems someone got rid of my deletion ribbon. Do you think we should keep it like such, or delete it as we know next to nothing? Iqskirby (talk) 20:55, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

message

Please do not delete the page I created. I feel it is a good page and I want to see it grow. I put a lot of info there so I believe it is not lacking. GreenKirby213 Frowning Kirby What did you say? 21:03, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

It's for a new game, so it must stay. Just don't go creating new pages for its content until the game is released. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 23:34, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

Keychains

I've noticed you've had your Keychain page in your workshop for quite a while, but I don't seem to be noticing any major or even minor changes to it. I don't mean to sound impatient or anything, but, are you done? If so, why not you put it up? I realize you're a busy person and I understand that. Iqskirby (talk) 12:02, June 12, 2014 (UTC) P.S. on a similar note, is it okay for someone to edit another's workshop if they are given permission?

I was thinking about doing the final check through and publishing that. If given permission to edit someone's workshop, you may. May you edit mine? No. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 17:39, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

KTD Level Copy Ability Section

Is it necessary to have a section pertaining to the copy abilities found in the level? It doesn't really tell me much to be honest; and I don't recall any other Kirby levels out there aside from KTD that have a copy ability section. I feel like it's just taking up space. I don't mean to bash on your work or anything. Iqskirby (talk) 13:17, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

I'm basing these off the levels in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It's helpful for people who want to know which specific abilities are located where. For example, someone who's looking for the Archer ability to fight Pyribbit for the first time wouldn't have any success acquiring the ability in Fine Fields, so a comprehensive list is useful. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 23:51, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
All right, I'll accept that. On a different note, thanks for deleting Kirby Fighters. Skelly11 and I are working on it together. Iqskirby (talk) 00:39, June 15, 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor

Dear NBK,

I have no idea why stuff gets deleted. Maybe it's because of the VisualEditor?

From,

Awesomelink234 (talk) 03:14, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, man. It's cool. Just be sure to double-check everything you do using VisualEditor to make sure things don't get deleted. I'd recommend you learn to edit in source mode to ensure that there are no more incidents. That's just a friendly suggestion. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 04:14, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Links

I've noticed that some pages have multiple links all leading to the same page. Is this redundant? Or are there certain rules to this? I can understand there being multiple links if they are in different sections, but some sections also have multiple links that lead to the same page. Iqskirby (talk) 12:01, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Which pages are you talking about specifically? My rule of thumb is that there should be one link to begin with, and then the only other repeated links are in galleries (Artwork, Gallery, Sprites, etc.) and large lists (Enemies, Mid-bosses, Bosses, etc.). For example, Kirby doesn't need to be linked in every section he's mentioned in. I would really appreciate it if you'd clean up the excess links on Kirby: Triple Deluxe. I'll be completely revising the page soon enough. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 15:25, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Was that bad?

While cleaning up the remaining instances of Demon Beast and Silica I could see on the wiki, I made the names up to date on some templates, and took the liberty of renaming Demon Beast to Monster...then immediately noticed afterwards a link to the Database manual, which warns against using redirects. Sorry! I shouldn't have gotten ahead of myself there... I don't know how to fix this and make it display the current list of monsters. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:28, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

Oh okay, I didn't realize. Hope I didn't accidentally cause more work.. LinkTheLefty (talk) 19:35, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

Things to look at

Once you return, I'd recommend checking out this page. We spoke about changing some names to their English counterparts (I changed Nightmares name to eNeMe, but only on his page, for example.). We'll need your go ahead on the other topics we discussed. Other than that, it was a pretty uneventful day. Hope your having fun with your family!

2 weeks gone

Starting tomorrow I will be gone for 2 weeks, as if the title didn't already imply that. I can't use any electronics whatsoever. If anything happens on my profile/talk page (not that anything will), I'd like you to take responsibility, if that's okay, as I know you're usually quite busy here. It'll be a pain when I come back here as edits will be made, probably a few new pages, and I'm going to have to check every page looking for changes. I may not be a monitor or anything official, but I tend to do things like that, see what people are doing and what I think about it. Recently an Action Star page was created. It was kinda crude, but I built up on it to make it less so. Pictures are needed, and I can't find one of good quality or something of the like. Once again, I'll be gone for quite a bit of time. This'll be one of the first places I go to when I return just to check on everything. Unfortunately, that'll be on a phone, not a computer or what not. Farewell.

I'll try, but there's a lot I need to catch up on... like The Arena. Also, for Drum Dash, if you want the last %, just go through the level.

Hey...

It's been months since I was last on Kirby Wiki. However, I am back! I am currently in Moscow visiting my dad, and I will be in Turkey next week on vacation! I will, however, make what edits I can, despite my slightly unwieldy smartphone. Thanks for not losing faith in me! I'll help you "hold down the fort", as you said above. I have 100% beaten Kirby Triple Deluxe, so I will be making many edits about it!

P.S. Is there some way we could set up an online game of ScareScraper? WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 08:38, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Not sure how to set up a ScareScraper over the internet with a specific person, though I'm doing a little research to see if it's a possibility. I've got 99% completion. Stupid Drum Dash. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 15:40, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Arena Endurance

I'd say give The Arena its own section on the Boss Endurance article (with simplified info), then link to it from there.--Star convertedStarman125Star convertedtalk|blog 19:53, July 3, 2014 (UTC)

I agree. Doos Rock! -Therater2 (talk) 19:54, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
That's easier said than done, as the majority of the info in The Arena is copied directly from Boss Endurance. Should I exclude the order of the bosses? And I take it each section should have a link to The Arena, right? NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 20:01, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
See, what I have in mind is an entire section for the Arena above the sections for the games, with a short paragraph like "The Arena is a specific version of Boss Endurance that appears in such and such", along with the main article template that links to The Arena.--Star convertedStarman125Star convertedtalk|blog 20:13, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that does work better than my idea. Thanks! I'll get to that promptly. NerdyBoutKirby X-Naut You rang, dude? 20:17, July 3, 2014 (UTC)

Hexadecimal

I may not be an expert on the subject, but I feel I know enough about it. 256 is the number of possible values in one byte, or 8 bits, usually 0-255. It is used in computing and game programming. For example, in Super Smash Bros Brawl, you can only collect a max of 255 sticks per match. If you collect one more, it resets to 0, due to the limited number of values. I felt this would also explain the relatively odd number of Keychains there are, instead of something like 100, 120, 200, or 250. But, if you don't really care about it, I guess I understand. Iqskirby (talk) 10:16, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

That's a good point. If you want to add it back, sure. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:46, July 18, 2014 (UTC)

Kinda wish I didn't have to bring this up again, but I am. I want to prove a point. It's clear you have editing software. Perhaps it has a way to edit colors. Maybe it has RGB (Red Green Blue) sliders. An eyedropper tool would be helpful as well. If you analyze Blue Kirby (turns out the artwork isn't far off, my bad; all appearances of him appear similar) in Return to Dreamland, Triple Deluxe, and Fighters Deluxe, you'll find out he is closer to cyan than to blue (having high blue and green and low/no red). My reading of it got me R:0 G:234 B:238. That's close enough to call cyan. As for the Purple Kirby one, perhaps I should've worded it as "Oddly, official artwork for Purple Kirby in Kirby Fighters Deluxe shows him as being a lighter blue than in-game." I hope maybe you'll think a bit differently because of this. If not, I apologize for wasting your time. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 00:11, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

But that's just not notable enough. We never mentioned that Kirby is salmon-colored in KTnT because it simply doesn't matter. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:44, September 1, 2014 (UTC)
Fine, but that was most likely a color limitation thing. The artwork for that game is more accurate to his color. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 00:47, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

Dream Land

Aren't the Popopo islands part of Dream Land? They are on Planet Popstar. On another note, Dream Land (Kirby's Epic Yarn) should not be in "related areas" due to the fact that it is still Dream Land, albeit made of Yarn; likewise, Canvas Curse is Dream Land but made of paint, but it has its section there. Iqskirby Super Waddle Doo Flare Beam. Zap!

P.S.: is there anywhere where I can find the various font colors?

The Popopo Islands are explicitly "south of Dream Land." You want to change the text color on your sig? Look up CSS Colors online to find some colors. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 21:21, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
I can understand that. But what defines Dream Land? Looks like the entire planet is Dream Land, especially when looking at KDL3 and KRrD. Iqskirby Super Waddle Doo Flare Beam. Zap!
Dream Land varies from game to game, but if a region is stated to be separate from Dream Land (e.i. Popopo Islands), it isn't part of it. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 21:35, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
All right. As for the colors, for some reason aqua and cyan are exactly the same. I figured as the hexadecimal values are the same (00FFFF). Iqskirby Super Waddle Doo Flare Beam. Zap!

Hey, so thought I'd let you know that I finally own Kirby: Triple Deluxe! I'm gonna play through it and get myself up to speed, and then I am at-your-service.

So I'm 90% complete now, and just unlocked the Sound Test... and gee, do I have my work cut out for me, 132 songs in there... sheesh... well, I'm up for it, though! I had thought the little test soundtrack we had was complete, but I guess not... and yeah I'll take a look at those articles (and probably lots more too) soon as I get the soundtrack and reach 100% clear on the game. :) --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 14:57, July 23, 2014 (UTC)

Pictures?

Does anymore pictures need to be added on this wikia?

Multiple Signatures

How exactly can I accomplish this? I've looked on the bottom of your user page, where info about your various signatures is explained, but the whole {{SUBST:User:Example/Sig}} isn't working, most likely because I haven't found a way for the wiki to recognize previous signatures as signatures. So how exactly can I do this without having to write out all of the source (which I'm very capable of doing, but let's face it, it's tedious)? IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 16:37, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

And yes, I realize you're vacationing so I can wait until you've returned

Identical Pictures?

I saw you added pictures to Dedede's gallery, and I thought you went to my workshop and used those pictures, which is fine by me. Then I went to photos and it turns out you uploaded these, and it's starting to bother me. Dedede clone Top this picture is identical to the second one you posted, aside from yours being a png and having 106 KB more. The other Dedede picture is the same too, aside from adding another pixel row (mine was 239 which bothered me) Dedede Z Top, this one being only 65 KB, while yours was at 173 KB, although the difference in that doesn't seem to change the quality much, if at all. I'm surprised the wiki didnt recognize them as very similar, unless it had to do with the image types. Anyways...

Also, a response to my previous question would be nice. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 02:44, August 9, 2014 (UTC)

First and foremost, I haven't been checking everything everybody's done for the last two weeks. Having two identical images won't do us any harm, so I really don't see any point in this message. Are you accusing me of doing nothing wrong? As for your previous question, I'm no tech genius. I can't explain why it would not be working for you.
I'm sorry if this reply is awfully blunt, but you really caught me at a bad time with such a minuscule nitpick. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 03:20, August 9, 2014 (UTC)
I realize you were on vacation and that I might've rushed you a bit. I know it's not convenient to look through the photos and whatnot. I guess it's kinda a credit thing, if you know what I mean, but I guess it shouldn't really matter. I also apologize for being a bother to you. Seems something like that keeps happening. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 12:41, August 9, 2014 (UTC)
You're forgiven, mate. I intend to be uploading all these images to several pages, and I just needed them to be in the recent images log. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 16:17, August 9, 2014 (UTC)
Well, you can find them all in my Workshop if you wish. They're in the "List of stages section." Some pictures are also in the gallery. I've taken some of the pictures to appropriate areas as well, such as the Dyna Blade ones and Shadow Kirby. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 16:23, August 9, 2014 (UTC) I'll just keep this signature for now, store my older ones on a signature page like Skelly11.

Translator

Hate to bother you again, but do you know of anybody that can translate Japanese to English from some of the various pictures I've posted? I know Kirbyellow provides Japanese pictures, but I'm not sure if he can/would translate the text from given pictures to English. Thank you for your time.

Alright. I understand. I'll put a forum post in hopes of somebody knowing. Perhaps there may be software out there or something ridiculous I could do.

KFZ pics

You seem to have a knack for getting pictures. Some of these pictures I have yet to find their sources, though I'm assuming quite a bit of them are from Miiverse due to me never having found them beforehand, and that I don't believe multiplayer videos exist yet. So, I would like it if you could get some pictures of the stages for me. The ones I need a new picture for are: Castle Lololo (one that depicts the duo), Bubbly Clouds (without the Kracko Boss Fight), Dedede Arena (reused the old picture), and Factory Tour (seems too focused on mouth-to-mouth). There are some other criteria for some of these pictures however, as I am a bit picky with this: I don't want there to be 3 or more Kirbys with the same Copy Ability, like in the picture you added to "Cracker." I also don't want a big focus of alternate costumes. One is fine though, just not in every picture. I don't want the picture to focus on mouth-to-mouth or an item like Timer Dynamite, Microphone, or Main Cannon No 2. Lastly, I don't want Shadow Kirby. I understand he's a new unlockable, but like before, I don't want to focus on that. I'd prefer to keep classic pink on screen. If this causes trouble for you, tell me and feel free to upload pictures against the criteria. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 22:31, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

That's too specific. I can't control what people post on Miiverse, and whatever goes on there comes here. I think we ought to be content with what pictures we have unless there are dire problems with them. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 22:38, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
Being honest, you're probably right. It is getting to me. Having such an obsession with pictures. I guess I really am nitpicky. I'll do this work on my own then, see what I can find. Hopefully something good. Maybe this jackpot wasn't much of one at all. Time to type source. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoTime to stop shoveling...
Yep, it's official. I'm going insane with finding pictures.
Friend-to-friend advice: Just take a day off. I took more than my fair share the last two weeks, after all, haha. =) It would do you some good to put your mind at ease for a brief spell. Your choice, though. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 03:51, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
I'll most certainly think about it. Although, I had my 2 weeks as well, those of which didn't include any personal electronics at all. Once I came back, I tried to find out as much as I could that occurred when I was gone. Only reached less than a week's edits. At least I found out about The Arena scenario. That was pretty important. Speaking of which, I created redirect pages for everything on "List of Environmental Elements" while you were gone. I don't really know how I feel about a "day off." Are you implying the major work (as I apparently have been doing), or work here altogether? I do tend to monitor others' edits, even though I'm not an admin or have some other non-existent rank that makes me have to do this. I just do it to keep everything strait. I feel like if I leave, I'll miss something that if I were still here, I could've done something. But anyways, I'll think about it.
I changed my mind about some of the pictures. I went to the Kirby Fighters page and realized the pictures didn't display the hazards, and I was okay with that. So I guess it doesn't really matter if they're displayed here either. Most of the pictures were also during the beginning of the match before anybody moved. Maybe I'm too into the fighting spirit or something, but I'll accept those. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 12:09, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
Excuse my jumping in here, but it's perfectly alright if you don't personally look through every edit on the site yourself, Iqskirby. There are always others (NBK and myself specifically) who are also doing that, so you do not need to feel personally responsible for it, and you may rest assured that it will all get looked at and changed if necessary. You do great work here, and I appreciate all of your help, but you don't need to worry about things not getting looked over, okay? :) You're not the only one who is watching the Wiki! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 16:07, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
You're fine being an addition to the talk. However, I don't do it evade I feel it's my duty. I do it because I can, and I want to. It's like the saying "If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life." This is fine, except for some occasions, like our disagreements in which I just have to let pass and deal with. However, last night, in pretty sure I became obsessive with finding pictures. I'll try to time down, maybe do some clean-up.

Yes, that's perfectly alright, like I said I appreciate all your help a lot, but just don't worry too much if you miss something, someone else will get it I'm sure!

Initiative?

I see what you've done, uploading pictures and editing my workshop, but I must ask, was some of that really necessary? I didn't ask you to upload the pictures and give them to me. All I said on that subject was "but if you want to upload those pictures, go on ahead, I'll see what I think of them." No questions asking you, no commands telling you. But, uploading the pictures wasn't really wrong. You have your right to upload pictures. Thinking I asked you to, though, is wrong, but only a little, if one believes in magnitudes of "wrongness." Editing my workshop, however, was most certainly wrong. I, at no point, gave you permission to edit my workshop; but that's exactly what you did. I have yet to revert it though, if I do. I'm happy the pictures are 400x240, but I'm not the happiest with the numbers, but hey, it's difficult to get what we want in these conditions. Don't edit my workshop again, unless you ask first. I said that there would be consequences, but I don't really know if I can do much to you, being an admin, even though I know that an admin is this: "Idealy an admin shouldn't be considered 'in charge'. The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikia community." So while me might be somewhat on even levels, I still can't do much, besides throw this in your face, which I suppose isn't the nicest thing and may seem rash, but neither is editing another's workshop without permission. I'm just going to let this slide for now. You probably meant no harm. I might be acting somewhat contradictory in what I'm saying, so I appologize for that. Just don't do that again. Okay? If you want to edit it, just ask. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!!

No need to lecture me on this. I thought you were giving me the go-ahead when you asked me to upload them. I am sorry for bothering you. I should also point out that the numbers don't matter in the slightest. I realize this page means a ton to you, but no one expects perfection -- turning down perfect-size screenshots because of a couple numbers would be foolish. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 16:55, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
Well, sometimes inferences can bite us. And scratch that, I was being rash, even though it wasn't the most hasty thing, as I'd had hours to think about it. I was not in the greatest mood at the time, and I do have a tendency for revenge and grudges. So, I apologize. I still have the pictures, I haven't reverted anything. I'm still thinking about it. Visually there isn't really a difference in size or quality, given they're squeezed into a chart/table. I personally wanted out with numbers for consistency and I don't usually like taking content from others, even though it's anonymous and it's not like the person will find out. But I'll stick with these for now, given they all have 400x240 dimensions (besides bomb, which currently doesn't exist from you).IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 17:18, August 13, 2014 (UTC)

Question

Who's the founder of Kirby Wiki ? --Marx422 (talk) 16:41, August 13, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not NBK, but I'll tell you that from what I've heard, the founder of this wiki is Max2. He's been inactive since about 2007, so his powers have been removed. Skelly11 BladeknighthelperKSS Soreayit! 17:17, August 13, 2014 (UTC)

hi

Luvbee

I'm brought to believe that when I mention this name, you know something's wrong, and that's true. He's thinking about suicide, and I'm not sure what we should do about that, if anything. Should we just mind our own business, it's not really our problem, or should we talk with him, do something to prevent such morbid deeds, assuming he's being entirely serious without other thoughts. This isn't good. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 12:23, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

I don't know if he's doing it for attention or not, but it seriously needs to be addressed. And if this user is serious, we need to do everything in our power to prevent it. Doos Rock! -Therater2 (talk) 14:04, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

Arena Trophies

I see that you want a True Arena trophy from Kirby Super Star Ultra. I hope this thumb may suffice (click for full-size). Crop out whichever one you want (I also included The Arena ones as well if you want that too), get rid of the background if you can, and put it where you wish. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 14:23, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

Editing/A Favor

You told me that you edited the alternate costume pictures to exclude the numbers. Tell me how exactly you did that, but don't be too technical. I'm not a tech nerd/geek/genius. If the basics of it are what I assume, I have a favor to ask. IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 23:58, August 20, 2014 (UTC)

I used PhotoShop to paste a blank slate (as in, no recorded numbers) over the existing numbers. I wish I could apply such skills to the keychains, but the background behind them moves -- no two screenshots would have the circles in the exact same spot to use as an easy reference. I'd like to help, but doing it any other way on over 100 keychains would be an overwhelming task.
Don't worry, this isn't about Keychains. Here's my problem that I hope you can "fix."
KFZ Title Alt 3 + KFZ Title BB = KFZ Title Alt 12 (kinda)
I need you to take out Shadow Kirby from the first picture and put him in place of Parasol Kirby in the second picture to effectively get the third picture, minus the lightning effect and whatnot. I'm getting really tired of looking through those Miiverse posts, and this is a very big troll to me, even though it was unintentional. I went as far back as 7/28/14, and that took forever to reach, especially since if the page is reloaded, I have to go all the way back to that point, which takes forever. I know such a picture exists/could exist, but I'm not willing to do all that work for potentially nothing of my taste. So, I'd really appreciate if you do this.

Infoboxes

Hi there NBK! I hope you don't mind me asking, but I need some help with infoboxes (not on this Wikia, though). You see, I've recently got involved in maintenance work on a Wikia for a mod that was heavily disorganized; while it still is, it's a sight better than it used to be. So far, I've been doing so good, but the infoboxes are giving me a problem. Basically, I have the standard layout for an infobox, but they aren't displaying correct information. For example, I'd type down "|Name = (EXAMPLE)", but it doesn't appear anywhere inside the infobox, rather just saying "unknown". I would take a screenshot, but I wouldn't want to clutter your page unless you'd want to see what I type and what appears in the infobox. It's odd, because the actual infobox itself appears and the image displays correctly; just the information doesn't appear.

Is there a way I could modify the infoboxes themselves to change what they display? Would you be capable of telling me or showing me a page here that could teach me? I hate for this to seem as if I'm begging for your help on another Wikia...I know, I know, I'm not very much active here anymore, but I plan to be. If you can't help me, then no biggie. I'll keep trying until one of the admins takes a crack at it. Thanks a bunch, Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 21:18, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

I wish I could help, but I don't know too much about infoboxes myself. ^^; I wish you luck in finding the solution. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 21:25, August 21, 2014 (UTC)
Nah, don't worry about it. I'd consult the Wikia Toolbar there, but most of the bars are oddly named, and theirs aren't quite set up as nicely as ours (and rife with spelling mistakes eek, I'm just glad I'm working on the actual mod's articles and not the fan-made ones). Either way, no big deal, but thanks for wishing me luck! Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 21:30, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

Hiya!

I'm baaaaaaaaaack! High school has finally started, and I have managed to free up some time to contribute to the wiki every day! I just had a question: I noticed that you have been uploading a lot of Kirby Squeak Squad artwork lately. Where are you getting all this cool artwork from? Please tell me! --WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 21:48, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

Welcome back. The artwork came from a Japanese KSqSq guide book I got for Christmas -- after putting it off for eight months, I finally got around to scanning the artwork from it. I've been uploading one (or occasionally two) a day. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 22:05, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
Great! Where can I get a PDF of that book? Do they have artwork of every single enemy?WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 22:13, August 25, 2014 (UTC)
Mine came from Ebay, and I (unfortunately) had to cut the pages out of the book for proper scanning. Funny story, after I finished cutting, I made a very low offer on one of those "buy it now or make offer" sales. Despite the buy-it-now price being 45 bucks, the seller accepted my $6 offer. This second book should come in September. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 22:51, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

Deeeeeeeeeeluxe.

Hi! I have some more Kirby: Triple Deluxe enemy artwork that I have uploaded. Could you (or someone else skilled with images) please transparentise them and put them on their respective pages? Thanks!--WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 04:21, August 27, 2014 (UTC)

You'll have to upload them first. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 16:19, August 27, 2014 (UTC)

It's a different Deluxe, but does it look like I care? Thank you for changing all of those "Z"s to "Deluxe." Must of taken a lot of time to do. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 01:56, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

All in a day's work. =) I'll change all the instances of Drum Dash Z to Deluxe soon.
On another note, I take it you already bought KFD? NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 02:33, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
I want to say yes to that, but unfortunately it's a no. I don't have any eShop money, but I've got a ton of cash. This is a part of my dream game (another Air Ride, mind you), and I can't have it yet. I'll either have to request to go to Target or buy some eShop stuff on Amazon for a bit more than it's actually worth. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 02:40, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
If you have a credit card to use, you can download exactly $7. As for me, I dunno if I'll buy either eShop game. Maybe KFD will end up on my Christmas list. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 03:42, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
I don't have credit. I still wish it were called Z, but it doesn't bother me too much. So I can either spend my money today or in recent days to come, or wait for 2 months (when my 16th birthday occurs). IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 12:30, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

Photos

Is it possible for one to delete a photo on this wiki? IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 22:26, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

It is. It's an extremely lengthy process that I honestly can't remember. What do you want deleted? NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:34, August 29, 2014 (UTC)
Just wondering for future references. Is it an admin only thing, or can anyone do it? If the latter, is there a page with a tutorial to do said lengthy process? IqskirbyShovel Knight PogoDoin' like Duck Tales! 00:39, August 29, 2014 (UTC)
I just checked. It's actually really simple, apparently, but I suspect it's an admin privilege. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:45, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

Japanese Pics

As you know, I have a lot of Japanese pictures for KFZ. You may also know that it's finally out in America. What I want to ask is, should I keep the Japanese pictures (referring to the page and/or wiki) or get rid of them/replace (most of) them? IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 14:33, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

At this point, we already have all the images we need; doing nothing would not be a bad thing. However, if you would like to replace them with English images, that is certainly allowed. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 22:47, August 29, 2014 (UTC)

Common Enemies

I see you're working on that, and it concerns me a bit. In the common enemies section, you're kinda cramming in a lot. More so, it's significantly stretching the info box. I'm not so sure you should a). keep doing this or b). call it "common" enemies anymore. When you put the Shipwrecked Octopus in there, which there is only one of, that's when I was most concerned. So it's either we just keep a few enemies (I apologize for making you undo your work should this be the option), or that we just call it "enemies" (although the stretch might bug me). I hope we can make an easy agreement here. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 00:46, September 3, 2014 (UTC)

I would change the infobox caption to just "Enemies" if I could, but I'm not skilled with templates. Perhaps Changtau or Gioku could help with that. Either way, the level articles seem to be overrun with bulleted lists -- this should help with congestion. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:54, September 3, 2014 (UTC)
I'd assume changing templates is harder than just going in through the infoboxes and changing some letters and such? I could copy/paste the template, then go into a workshop myself and mess around with it until we get the right item. Unless, of course, we need to change something on other pages. I'm not throwing anyone under the bus in particular, but I figure a few of us will have to step up and finally learn how to code and technical stuff like that. It'll help us all in the long run, so I figure I'll try toying around with it tomorrow. Meta Kirby52 Kake-1- It's all mine! 01:35, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Figmeister

If he edits stactus again, changing "stacti" to "statuses," I want you to do something about it. He did it once, but I just undid it and said why. He redoes his edit, in which I undo ASAP. I don't want to do it again and cause an edit war, so if something happens, you know what to do. Thank you. IqskirbyZZEEEEE!! 20:08, September 3, 2014 (UTC)

I agree that Stacti is correct and that Figmeister isn't doing us any favors with his changes, but please don't tell me how to do my job. He'll need to do more than just a few unfavorable edits to be on the chopping block (if he became openly hostile or began threatening your life, for instance). I will issue a warning to him, however.

Screenshots from Miiverse

I know that I have had a bad habit of taking screenshots from Youtube videos, but I think that I have found a way to get them without the use of a capture card. You see, I recently learned how to get screenshots from the game and post them to Miiverse from here, and since Miiverse is also available on computers, I can just take my pictures, save them by just clicking on them and uploading them here. I wanted to know if the pictures that I am posting down here are satisfactory or not, so tell me what you think of them.

Skelly11 BladeknighthelperKSS Soreayit! 16:40, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

First main-space article

So, I haven't been very active here. I don't feel like I have much to do here. The whole KFD thing has been overshadowing everything, so I'm deciding tomorrow to finally grant it main article status. Just want you to give me the green light to go (ha ha, I'm currently taking Driver's Ed) so I know all is good. Once that's over with, I'll get to my other projects, like Drum Dash Deluxe, Sunstones and Rare Keychain specifics, NES Remix 2, and the Mandola Root. Also, congrats on 25K. IqskirbySonic 1 RunningRUN! HE'S GOT DEBUG MODE! 21:04, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

If possible, could the Mandola Root article be your next priority after KFD? I was gonna make it myself today, but I see you're interested in it. I'd suggest cut-pasting from the Turnip article; otherwise the information there will go to waste. It's just a thought, do it however you like.
As for your KFD article, it looks good. There are only two things I would immediately change:
  1. Title screen slideshow -- While posting all the various title screens is thorough, I don't think 12 title screen images would have any impact on readers. It also takes up space. You could post one title screen in the Gallery and then mention that it changes in the Trivia.
  2. Cut down unnecessary images -- There are 97 images on the page. Plenty of them are necessary, such as the stages and rare hats. However, there are dozens of images that we don't need there. For example, most of the smooch pictures and all of the rare hat acquisition images in the gallery are redundant.
If you have other questions, just let me know. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 21:26, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, removing pictures from the gallery was definitely one of the things I want to get changed. I'll make the change to the slideshow as well. I'll make them a first priority, DDDD following that.

Hey just thought I'd remind you that I'm right around, even though I haven't been patrolling and stuff; that's because school's started, so my time is rather limited. However if you (or anyone else) has some random thing you want done (or anything of that nature), I'm just a message away! I haven't had any time to do the KSSU Stone screenshots though but I plan on doing that this weekend. Also I got the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Special Demo; I'm not sure how much that affects the wiki because there's not much Kirby-related in it; just some items (that we probably were already aware were in), like the Warp Star, the Star Rod, and the Maxim Tomato. So just thought I'd bring that up in case you didn't have it and/or we wanted anything from it. Thanks! --GiokuAvatarGiokutalkuser 15:04, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry if my progress is less than what you've hoped for. School's been pounding down on me, I didn't have any internet yesterday, and I've been having constant headaches for the past 3 days for some unknown reason. Anyways, with all that I have, it doesn't seem worthy to be its own page, let alone a stub. This seems more like something that would be part of the List of environmental elements page. I will make it a page and leave it up to your judgement. If it doesn't deserve a page, put its important info on the environmental elements page, however, I request that you don't delete the page, and instead make it a redirect to its rightful place on the environmental elements page. That's something I did while you were gone: made redirect pages for bits on the environmental elements page. I hope you understand. IqskirbySonic 1 RunningRUN!

Looks fine to me. =] NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 21:22, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Compilation

You've done it for Stone, Archer, Circus, and eventually Ultra Sword. Perhaps you could make a compilation picture of all the various KFZ title screens. Here they are, feel free to delete the from the page when you're done with this.

Preferably in this order as well, but if you feel you have a better way to organize it, go on ahead. IqskirbySonic 1 RunningRUN! HE'S GOT DEBUG MODE! 00:41, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

"Copy Ability Name" Kirby

I'm getting tired of us locking horns with each other. While you may claim "Match" Kirby is more accurate, I disagree. The guide is noticeably flawed, which we both know, and this is one of those parts. You know I'm a fan of consistency and precision, and this interferes. Besides four of them, every copy ability there goes simply by its name. That's precision. By adding "Match" Kirby and "Swiss Army" Kirby, both having kirby at the end and having quotation markings that don't exist on most keyboards, that's inconsistent, and therefore not precise. We might as well have every copy ability article like that, like "Fire" Kirby, "Ice" Kirby, "Tornado" Kirby, instead of just Fire, Ice, or Tornado; but that would be a pain. Then there's Refrigerator Kirby and Giant Stone Kirby, which have Kirby at the end but no quotations, further decreasing the consistency and the precision; and besides, you can't have accuracy without precision. This isn't precise, so it's not accurate. I'll wait until you respond to this before making any potential changes. Also, I apologize if this sounds like I'm lecturing you. Just trying to show you my side of the story. IqskirbySonic 1 RunningSUPER SONIC SPEED! 23:50, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

Correction: It is the definition of accurate. These were typed exactly like the book, and no matter how flawed it is, it's the only source we've got. Besides, these names we recommended by a user who has more influence and authority than the two of us combined. Changing them would be losing accuracy.
I'm trying very hard not to lose my temper, so I'll try to get these tips across gently:
  1. You should learn to summarize your thoughts in about four sentences or less. Type more than that and it's a lecture.
  2. Your attention to detail and consistency is admirable, but it's, well, OCD-level consistency. It's not bad to be as thorough as possible, but there comes a point where enough information/images is enough. For example, do we really need all 12 possible title screen variations when they're largely unimportant to their primary article?
Thank you for reading. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:15, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
Guess it is considered accurate, considering this is the only "accurate" source we have, but I'm still irked by this inconsistency; but I won't complain. Also, I myself, am holding back my temper as well, as I'm not the happiest with these disagreements, but this is how it'll be. I'll also try to summarize my thoughts instead of doing what I just did. IqskirbySonic 1 RunningSUPER SONIC SPEED! 00:33, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll admit, I have been giving those names some thought... You might have a point. Can't believe I'm saying this, but go ahead and change those four if it means so much to you. I won't stand in your way; do what you feel is right in this circumstance. NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 00:37, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
All right, thank you. Also, the only one you reverted back was "Match" Kirby. I kinda already did the others and wondered why you didn't revert the others initially. IqskirbySonic 1 RunningSUPER SONIC SPEED! 00:40, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Galaxy Soldier Army

Hello, I'm kind of new to wikia so I don't know how to do a lot of things. I wanted to ask about the pages for the knights of the Galaxy Soldier Army in the anime. I'm a native Japanese speaker and a huge fan of the Kirby series, and I wanted to mention that the knights were not named after the knights of the round table (except for Arthur). The names in the Japanese version were Sir Paragaado/doragaato for Dragato, Sir Noisuraato/Nonsuraato for Nonsurat, and Sir Falsuparu/Parusiparu for Falspar. (There are some disputes due to the poor pronunciations of the voice actors). Although it might be good to mention that "Parusiparu" could be taken from the name Percival, otherwise the knights' names were not taken from the Knights of the Round Table. I started to change them myself, but I didn't want to mess anything up(I don't know html) and wanted to make sure I wasn't mistaken for a vandal. Could someone fix this? Thank you.

I'm neutral on the subject as I know little Japanese, but a debate has been going on here. You may join in and the community will come to a decision at the end of it all. Cheers, NerdyBoutKirby VBWL Chainsaw Fish spriteBZZZZZ! 21:17, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for pointing me to the debate. However, it would appear I can't really edit the subsections of that page. I'll keep trying later. Thank you for the reply! ZhassouDragon (talk) 22:29, September 29, 2014 (UTC)ZhassouDragon

Questions

Hi, NBK! Three things: 1. Should there be an article for Pac-Flower, the Wild World version of Pacto? If there should, can I make it? 2. What does in take to become an admin? I know, I know, I'm not worthy yet! :) 3. Are the Kirby Advance pics I've been posting lately correct in terms of size and format? See ya later! WaddleDooFan77 Beamdoo.pngTwice the awesomeness! 16:55, October 8, 2014 (UTC)

1. I think the Pacto article houses that information well enough. It's not differentiated much from ordinary Pacto and Pac-Cloud, and the name itself is of suspicious origin. Ultimately, I think leaving it where it is would be wiser.
2. Adminship is a hard-earned privilege. A candidate must prove that he is trustworthy, devoted to Kirby Wiki, demonstrates good judgment, can settle arguments peacefully, has a substantial edit count (accomplishing projects and contributing piles of information/images always helps), and has attained much experience. An admin doesn't have to know everything, but he should at least cover the basics -- that definitely includes grammar. Additionally, the candidate should be a good choice. Why does he want the power to enforce rules? How will he use them? Does he seem likely to abuse his power? Is his disposition mostly friendly and collected or hostile and sour?
In some rare cases, editors can be promoted if most admins have deserted and there is a fear of anarchy. These times are never fun. -.-'
3. Absolutely. Keep up the good work! =]

Signature?

If you're not too busy, could you please create a signature for me? I have an idea for what it could be- A Waddle Dee running away from a Wapod with the caption 'Ahhh!'.

Here you go! Hope you enjoy.

Paul2 Wapod Run AHHHH!

Contact me if you have any trouble using it. NerdyBoutKirby DK Sig 2 Hey! I found it first, buddy! 03:52, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
That's great, NBK! Thanks a lot! Doos Rock! -Therater2 (talk) 11:47, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

RyuD

I don't know if you've noticed, but a user going by the name of RyuD has been adding false information to pages. Can you do anything about that? Paul2 Wapod Run AHHHH! 12:35, October 18, 2014 (UTC)

Oh. You already have noticed. Sorry. Paul2 Wapod Run AHHHH! 12:38, October 18, 2014 (UTC)

User category

You might know this already, but there has been somebody who has been putting various user pages into a new user category. While I'm sure he/she means to harm, is this something we should be concerned about? Iqskirby Birthday Sig It's my birthday!! (almost...) 23:50, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't seem to hurt anything, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. NerdyBoutKirby DK Sig 2 Hey! I found it first, buddy! 03:12, October 27, 2014 (UTC)
The reason I'm concerned about this is because I don't recall any categories not related to main pages/blogs, and/or the fact that this is extremely tedious, almost impossible in my opinion, for one to fully accomplish; and, knowing you, I know you don't like things that are left unfinished, such as various stub articles for Triple Deluxe as a result of insufficient data. As I highly doubt such a project is going to be finished, there will/may be some problems. Iqskirby Birthday Sig It's my birthday!! (almost...) 02:10, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
I won't stop you from undoing it all if you think that'd be wisest. NerdyBoutKirby DK Sig 2 Hey! I found it first, buddy! 02:17, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
I've come across a problem. It seems there are some pages that I can't remove the category from. I can't remove the category from said pages because they were included in the first, and only, edit to the page, or effectively the page creation. Since one can't undo the creation of a page without deletion, or delete just the category itself, that's a problem for me, especially when one of those pages in my own user page. So a little help from you is needed in order to achieve that. Iqskirby Birthday Sig It's my birthday!! 00:56, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. Iqskirby Birthday Sig It's my birthday!! 01:40, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Expert Advice?

I know that the project that I would be using this information for has been (mostly) cancelled, but I think that it may be useful for other projects as well. Do you have any advice about how one would get quality sprites from an old game, such as Kirby's Dream Land 2? I thought I would ask you, since you seem to know a lot about spriting.Paul2 Wapod Run AHHHH! 20:04, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Have you tried The Spriters Resource? Iqskirby Birthday Sig It's my birthday!! (almost...) 20:11, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Seems interesting. I'll take a look. Paul2 Wapod Run AHHHH! 20:30, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
