This day in history

Alright, the following statement will show just how much I don't know about Wikis:

  1. What's a bulk erection, how do I do it?
  2. What is a purge, how do I to it?

Sorry, but I guess I have to learn some day!   Bentendo  Talk

"There's a hell of a lot you don't know about Wiki's, Bentendo"
That's why I need people to teach me ;) I learn more and more everyday, and sometimes I may screw up or forget (like using numbers instead of #, but that's just what I used to do and just forget about the convenience), but I'd say I'm improving. There were a couple years where I just didn't care and chose to only make and improve articles, but I'd say that's changing. Now I'm starting to GRADUALLY get the hang of Wiki lingo and coding and what not. I'm also starting to visit Wikia's help site frequently.   Bentendo  Talk

Recent uploads

I saw this as your summary for one of your uploaded images yesterday:

"and this Wiki hasn't been updated yet"

What do you mean by that? --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 18:33, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Rulebooks

Alright, you gotta help he out here. I checked Google and Wikia Help and neither had any information on rulebooks (or pur rule books, whatever that means). So, once again, could you explain? Thanks in advance and if I can answer your question I will.   Bentendo  Talk

Oh I see. I had a feeling that's what you meant. Anyway, I have a page of "do nots" that I made a LONG time ago, but it's kind of out of date. Do you mind if I copy some of the things on your site to Nintendo: About?   Bentendo  Talk
Yeah I know. I'll just use it as a basis. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 22:04, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, after reading it I see that it directly applies to the Sonic Wiki. I guess I'll just go to the English Wikipedia and use their page as a basis.

Signature

Thanks for changing my sig. I KNEW there had to be a better way of doing that! --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 17:09, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Administratorship

Alright, I'm going to put all my replies here from now on!

It seems that there are only two active admins at the moment. Not a lot, I know. When someone asks to be admin I usually just let them (as long as they're trustworthy). A lot more people asked me over at Nintendopedia.org, but of course that site went kerplunk.   Bentendo  Talk
I had a feeling that question was coming up. Well, congrats, you've been granted administrative and rollback privileges. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 17:47, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Cool find!

That's pretty awesome. Anyway, I'll add it to my text file page. You see, on my computer I have a text file that contains ever day of the year, and after each day I have special events that occurred on that day. It's hard finding enough events for a template (which is why it takes a long time for me to post them up). But this is definitely something I'll add.   Bentendo  Talk

Blocking template

Haha, it's... interesting... to be honest it's a bit much, but if that's what you want to use if you ban someone then more power to you! The images gave me a chuckle though! And a slight seizure but I think I've recovered. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 17:05, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

WOW! You really thought this through didn't you? Anyway, I was just joking about it giving me a seizure. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 17:36, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
Eh, I'm going to say no. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 17:45, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
Well, if you want to you can go to EncyclopediaDramatica.com and type in "Fail", but be prepared to be offended. I'm pretty sure the only thing that's not allowed there is child pornography. It can be a really funny site but I haven't been there in a while because, well, it really is among the few sites that are positioned in the arse of the internet. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 18:03, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Can I ask a question: Why exactly is this necessary. Wouldn't a simple ban template suffice? I mean, I understand the motivation, trying to get them off the site by annoying the hell out of them with annoying "EPIC" and "FAIL" images and "de"-motivators, but if they're banned already I don't see how they could pose much a threat seeing that they can't even edit anything. At first I understood why you were doing it, but I've thought about it and, really, I don't personally think it's the best of ideas. Sure, they may have spammed the site, but once they're banned they may still want to continue browsing, and I don't see how that's hurting anyone. The Nintendo Wikia, despite not being as high an acclaimed site as Wikipedia, should still be taken seriously. A lot of times you may want to switch the "What would Jesus do?" saying to "What would Wikipdia do?", and I'm fairly certain that they would vote against this idea without much thought about it.

And besides, I think these types of images should stick to the image boards and the EDs of the internet. I've said this to probably a hundred people, but once you start bringing those things elsewhere they lose the little (little) appeal that they had.

Just a long thought that you might want to take into consideration. It would be appreciated if you made a ban template that was more akin to something that Wikipedia or one of the larger Wikias had, if that's not too much to ask for. Thanks! --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 18:35, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Yes I understand that, but look at it this way: no other Wiki does something like this. I think it would be much more appropriate to just have a simple template telling the user that he or she's been banned from editing the site for how ever many of days, months or years. Like I said before I take this site very seriously, and after considering whether or not this was a very good idea I came to the conclusion that it ultimately wasn't. I said that sometimes you have to ask whether it's something that you would find Wikipedia doing, and I think I think I can say that they wouldn't. Some of the things in the "burger" isn't very appropriate either (in fact, almost every image in the "burger" isn't appropriate for this site). So, I think it would be best if we changed it to something similar to this. I feel bad for not saying something earlier because you went through so much work, and maybe you could use those images for your blocked template on the Sonic News Network, though for this site I've come to the conclusion that it's not a good idea, especially since we're aiming the site to be the most comprehensive Nintendo database on the internet. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 19:00, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, but while you've made the choice to keep it on the SNN, I think it's best for it to be removed on the Nintendo Wikia. Again, I wish I would've told you earlier on to remove it, and it probably was stupid on my part to direct you to sites that have images, but that was before I thought about the problems. I'm seriously sorry, but I'm afraid it has to be changed. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 19:28, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
It's MUCH MUCH BETTER! Thank you soooooo much! --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 19:56, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Suspected inactivity

Okay that's good. I was just wondering because I was afraid I offended you with that whole block template fiasco. If I did, no harm was intended. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 18:32, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Burger

Nah, that's alright. I prefer the old fashioned way. LOL. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 20:05, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon

Do you think I should wait for the English names to be revealed or should I add the Japanese names and change them later? --  Bentendo  Talk 16:07, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

Launchball link is broken

On your userpage the lunchball link is broken (/wiki/ is a problem). Going there and searching for Launchball works. --Bcw142 17:38, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

http://nintendo.wikia.com/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Crystal/walkthrough

Your edits of [1] caused unintended issues with viewing on some systems. Even tables can have problems. I tried to clean things up for viewing on most systems. The breaks were there for a reason, the big image of the MAP, like Evolution tables in Pokemon will get mixed with the text otherwise on many systems. This is very true of Intel based video controllers, the text gets covered by the pictures. I left the changes, just fixed the spacing so it works on most systems. --Bcw142 01:33, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Really all you have to do is make your browser windowed and shrink it down to see what others see. I shrunk mine to the width of the MAP and looked at it that way and up to the full size of my screen and it looks good now. Let me know if it looks odd wide screened (Crystal/Walkthrough). Guess the same applies to me of course, just set my screen to 1280x960 and likely see what you see that way. Likely the reason for the boxing on Diamond and Pearl/Walkthrough. I think using the bars might do it without full boxing, not sure how to center it except in real HTML (map and some titles would look better centered).--Bcw142 20:24, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

If I can't feed the birds, can I at least feed them to some of my Pokemon?)

JoePlay@Wikia (talk)

It allows you to edit the text for the link on the page bar, which by default is "Share this article." Whenever I setup a 1024 fixed width main page on a wiki, I shorten it to just "Share" so that the page tabs (Article, Discussion) and page bar links (Edit, History, etc.) are displayed on one line. You can see an example of the links and tabs displaying on multiple lines at the Sonic Wiki, due to the fact that they use really long text links. JoePlay@Wikia (talk) 18:16, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Monaco skins only. JoePlay@Wikia (talk) 20:47, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
The Monobook skin isn't supported by Wikia, so as far as I know, there isn't a Monobook-equivalent of MediaWiki:Sf-link. You could ask at the Help desk forum on the Central Wikia. Maybe someone there might know of a workaround. JoePlay@Wikia (talk) 22:02, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Why did you revert one of the sysops (me)? Slipknot Darkrai 18:07, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Addsection is an example. Though I am one of the sysops here. Slipknot Darkrai 21:35, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

That Template

Template:PokeaccentStub makes no sense. No one can figure out how to use it. just leave it the way it is. Please Slipknot Darkrai 19:07, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

What? Bentendo reverted you. Slipknot Darkrai 20:56, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Pokémon template

Wow that's pretty cool. Yeah I think we could do something with it. Maybe I'll move the current List of Pokémon to List of Pokémon by generation, and then replace the page with your template. What were you planning on doing under the "level" column? --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 19:56, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

OOHH I see, so it's meant for the Pokémon move pages. Erm, disregard the post above this. >_> --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 20:27, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
Oh lord, that's a pretty big problem. I remember having a similar problem with the game inbox templates, but I was able to fix it by implementing "hidden structure" (or something like that) in there. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 20:34, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, I have no clue. I'm terrible with coding (trying to get better), so if you really want to fix the problem, I suggest going to Wikia's central forum and asking them. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 20:46, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

Request

Hey Launchballer can I edit your sandbox sometimes? Slipknot Darkrai 20:57, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

OH MY GOD

Oh my GOD! That's unbelievable, seriously. You were totally right in doing that. I told him NOT TO COPY from other Wikis. I'm terribly sorry about that, because I feel partly responsible since I made him an admin. Seriously, it as a huge mistake making him an admin. I'll make him into a regular user now. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 15:09, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

The articles he imported have now been deleted. --BentendoSmallLogo.png Talk 15:25, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Chamber images

Thanks for offering to help! What I meant was that I tried to organize the character images I placed in the gallery next to the Chamber type they belong to. When I tried it just looked messy. If you feel like giving it a try, do so, otherwise I'll just settle for the gallery. It is no big deal anyway. - Ville10 16:41, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

That's a little bit better than when I tried, though I dislike when the image enters the next section. I'm gonna try to experiment a bit more. Thanks anyway! - Ville10 16:56, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
Well, doesn't we put them on either side to prevent the page from stretching? What I meant was that some images cause half of the following paragraph to start further from the edge than the rest. It's no big deal, but I'm pretty obsessed with having a perfect structure :P What is your opinion, a gallery or spread out on the page as we have done now? - Ville10 17:57, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, then we'll go with that. I'll remove the gallery at the bottom then (unless you have any objections). - Ville10 20:15, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

November-December templates

Don't worry, I'm planning on doing them pretty soon. They'll definitely be created come November and December when we'll need them. --  Bentendo  Talk 13:33, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Slipknot Darkrai

He's been editing for the past month. I'm going to let him stay because since his return he's been completely harmless. He won't be importing pages form other Wikis anymore and he'll never be allowed to become an admin again, so there's really nothing to worry about. -- Bentendo Talk 21:41, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

I was scared to edit and talk to you and Bentendo ever since. Slipknot Darkrai 00:47, December 8, 2010 (UTC) Oh and I am an administrator at luigismansion.wikia.com and creator of Donkey Kong Answers and Donkey Kong Fanon wiki. :D Slipknot Darkrai 00:50, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Image attribution

It's the "Added by..." that appears below every image with a frame on the wiki. In my opinion it looks horrible on images where the text doesn't fit on a single row, and I think it goes against the idea that articles on a wiki is created together. It gives credit to a single person instead. - Ville10 13:29, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

About MediaWiki:Sitenotice...

Seeing that you are a sysop here, could you please add a category link to the "stubs" part in the sitenotice? It helps me access the category easier and some people may not know the stubs category. Thanks. Conker's Bad Fur Day 17:50, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

Sure thing. This wiki kinda needs image cleanup and all that too :p. Conker's Bad Fur Day 20:32, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hey uh...

I have a question for you on the forum. Check it out here. Conker's Bad Fur Day 20:09, January 1, 2012 (UTC)

Adopting wiki

Hi. Thanks for starting the forum. I've given you the rights. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:02, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, I was wondering if Sonic Colors would be worth $20, please reply soon. :) TheNight 18:32, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

I meant, do you think that it'd be worth $20.
