Hello, Tacopill. Matter Splatter Galaxy 225 (talk) 19:57, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Matter Splatter Galaxy 225. Thank you for Joining. WikiSysop 01:35, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Hey there!

I was just wondering, would it be OK if these pages became real articles? They are my versions of a behavioral policy and an administrator page. I'm also working on a help page, a bureaucrat page and a coverage policy. Here are the current articles: Behavior policy / Administrator page. Lucness (Talk)

P.S. Don't you like being called Tacopill? Why are you called WikiSysop?

I called myself Wikisysop on the wiki (and all of the wiki's i host) so people can find me if i am needed. Anyway, on to the behavior policies: They look good. Just don't forget PK Wiki: namespace. WikiSysop 15:53, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
I am now tacopill....Tacopill 06:06, 30 August 2010 (UTC).

template samples

Here are some sample templates i'd like people to look at, and tell me is any of them would be useful here. Thank you very much for stopping by.

  1. Tacopill 06:35, 16 September 2010 (UTC).
Hmm... I was personally hoping to create original designs for infoboxes/table templates and the like, although for things that would have more backend use would be useful to have here. I'll take a closer look when I have more time later today. :D Tina 16:14, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Understandable. It's actually why i haven't imported any of them yet. But i figured i was offering this to SSB Wiki and FeW Wiki, so it wouldn't be fair if i didn't offer to a wiki that help run. Tacopill 16:26, 16 September 2010 (UTC).

New SSB wiki

Is Wikibound affiliated with the wiki you told me about on Lylat Wiki? A 01:24, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Not yet. I'd like to, but i think we should have our own domain first before we do affiliations. This may just be my opinion though. Tacopill 01:55, 17 September 2010 (UTC).


Is this wiki going to have WikiProjects like Bulbapedia and Lylat Wiki do? A 05:43, 23 September 2010 (MDT)

It's a possibility. What or Which Projects would you recommend? Tacopill 08:34, 23 September 2010 (MDT).
Projects for Characters and Locations. Those two subjects have been the wiki's biggest place that have been contributed to so far. A 14:54, 23 September 2010 (MDT)
Sounds good. Talk it over with Tina, and if you guys agree, place what you think would be useful information on this pages: WikiBound:Characters and WikiBound:Locations. Tacopill 15:07, 23 September 2010 (MDT).


Hey there Tacopill! Could I be renamed "Earthboundguy1" to follow my other usernames? I tried to differentiate this one but I couldn't keep it up, anyways, could you rename me? -Earthboundguy1

Sure. I will look into it. What do you want it called "Earthboundguy1"? Tacopill 08:14, 26 September 2010 (MDT).

A note about the hiatus notice on front

Hey guys, i am going to be away from September 29th, 2010 to October 4th, 2010. I will be visiting one of my old colleges for a LAN Party, and don't know how much free time i will have, no how much i will be visiting the wiki. I will probably still have acess to email, so if something turns up, just leave a message on this page, and i will look at it when i am next able. Thanks, and see you guys Monday. Tacopill 13:49, 28 September 2010 (MDT).

And i am back. Tacopill 13:20, 4 October 2010 (MDT).

Re: How many tables are you looking to have?

Well, I shared the site it used to be hosted on with 2 other people who were always testing new scripts (other wikis, forums, etc.) which was probably too much for the free hosting the domain owner had decided to get. :x Though just the Ace Attorney Wiki by itself probably didn't have that many tables. Claus 02:03, 16 October 2010 (MDT)

That explains a lot. If you are interested, what i offer to the medabots wiki, i can also offer to you. Tacopill 09:52, 16 October 2010 (MDT).

Project Enemy

Hey, Tacopill. Have you had your Hot Coffee yet?... Anyway, I was wondering if I could start a project called Project Enemy. It will, obviously, be about improving the enemy pages, such as New Age Retro Hippie or boss pages such as Frank. And if I'm posting this in the wrong place, then you can chew me up and spit me out and throw me down a sewer. Also, my name on NIWA is Starmen6. :)

I have no problem with this, but before you do you need to talk it over with A, current coordinator of projects. If he approves, then by all means do so. If he wants to wait, or has questions before approving, then please accompany him in whatever he wishes. I also recommend you check out this conversation. Tacopill 10:38, 17 October 2010 (MDT).

Top secret missions

I am beginning to recurit people for a few top secret missions. If you think you may be interested, and have the spare time, then drop me an email at bud0011[at]gmail[dot]com, user "tacopill" on skype or here on the wiki. Of course, i can't discuss what they are here, but you can still express interest in them. User:Tacopill/sig 21:23, 18 October 2010 (PDT).

Unexpected Logouts

Hey Tacopill, I wanted to tell you about a problem I've been having lately. Every time I start to edit an article and come back to it later, it will say my session has timed out, when I've only been gone about a half-hour. It wastes so much of my work when this happens. Could you please try to address this? RamblinEvilMushroom 20:49, 2 November 2010 (MDT)

I am looking in to it; but out of curiosity, do you select "Remember my login on this computer" when logging in. Tacopill 21:03, 2 November 2010 (MDT).


Hey, could I please be renamed "Earthboundguy1"? -Earthboundguy1

Ack, I just realized I asked this before, sorry X_X
Anyways, yes, "Earthboundguy1" -Youknowmyname
Done, and not a problem. Tacopill 22:13, 12 November 2010 (MST).

Typo on your page

Just letting you know, that you already went against "linguistical advice" by putting down "linguistical advise." Unless you are advising other people on how to spell, in which case stop immediately. Much thanks, Maxite 13:09, 11 December 2010 (MST)

Well, i do say i edit against "against linguistical advise", which is what you are offering :P. But thank you anyway, I've corrected it. Tacopill 15:59, 11 December 2010 (MST).


Could you look into if there's some sort of server issue causing this? Thanks! Miles (talk) 14:18, 13 April 2011 (MDT)

I am looking into it, and thank you for asking. Is it currently happening on this wiki? Tacopill 17:45, 17 April 2011 (MDT).
I am still looking it to it, if you are wondering. Tacopill 16:55, 28 April 2011 (MDT).
It's also happening with File:Mt Itoi.png for some reason. Just thought I'd add that. →Tinā δ 13:05, 12 May 2011 (MDT)
I asked Tappy for help, and, according to him, the problem seems to be something to do with a limit set by the webhost. When we next move, i will look it to the possibility of getting an increase on that for you guys.
Also, Tina passed along the idea of the file permission error, and i tried it out with no success.
Sorry this is taking so long to fix and Thank you for your patience, Tacopill 15:54, 12 May 2011 (MDT).

Rename StW->RN

Could I be renamed to RetroNerd? It's a much better name. Thanks. :) SmashertheWiki 23:32, 23 November 2011 (EST)

Sure, I will take care of it now. Tacopill 23:35, 23 November 2011 (EST).
Done. Tacopill 23:38, 23 November 2011 (EST).
Thank you :) RetroNerd 14:48, 24 November 2011 (EST)
You are welcome. Do you want all the links to SmashertheWiki changed to RetroNerd? Tacopill 16:51, 24 November 2011 (EST).
Nope, I don't think it's necessary. RetroNerd 19:46, 24 November 2011 (EST)
Ah, ok. Tacopill 19:52, 24 November 2011 (EST).

Image-uploading issues

I seem to be getting an error whenever uploading images since the maintenance.

"Could not rename file "/tmp/phpnYBMNt" to "public/6/6b/M2StatusComparison.png"."

Trying a different file was also a no-go, with the same error. :O Multus 16:46, 13 January 2012 (EST)

Odd, it seems the whole image-deleting and uploading system is down... Multus 17:17, 13 January 2012 (EST)
Thank you for informing me. I will look into it. Tacopill 17:58, 13 January 2012 (EST).
Alright, I believe it is working again. Also, when you get a chance, I would strongly appreciate you contributing to an on-going debate on NintendoWiki at this page.
Thank you very much,
Tacopill 19:16, 13 January 2012 (EST)


Do you have a rename username option like Toomai does on Smashwiki? Raynor ..... 20:41, 29 March 2012 (EDT)

Yes, users can be renamed. You want a different username, I'm guessing? So...we kind of need to know what you want the new name to be. I can't change your name myself, so you might have to wait until one of the higher-ups are available. AquaAzure 20:57, 29 March 2012 (EDT)

About the spambots...

Are you still active? Well, anyway, I heard that Icaruspedia had a similar problem, so they messed around with the code in some way or another so not many can get through. Couldn't we do something similar here? They're annoying to say the least, and in addition, it's a pain not being able to create new pages, etc. Mobile Opponent (talk) 19:18, 17 July 2012 (EDT)

I am not active and haven't been for some time now. I am aware of the spambot problem, but thank you for bringing up to me.
I have set up abuse filter to help fight spam...but it doesn't seem to be letting me in. :/

Database error

I was editing Saturn Valley, but when I tried to save, I got this error:

Warning: Illegal offset type in isset or empty in /home2/wikiboun/public_html/includes/Title.php on line 140

Warning: preg_match() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in /home2/wikiboun/public_html/includes/normal/UtfNormal.php on line 250

Warning: trim() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home2/wikiboun/public_html/includes/Title.php on line 2950

Do you have any idea what it means? Mobile Opponent (talk) 19:54, 17 March 2013 (MDT)

I do apologize, but I don't think I got an email saying I had a message.
Is this error still happening? Tacopill (talk) 23:30, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Help uploading images

What are the requirements are to be able to upload pics? I wanted to upload a sprite of Dr. Andonuts cuz the article needed more images, but when I tried to do that it said I didn't have the permission to create new pages. :/--User:UltraLucas3000

Be registered for 21 days, and have 25 edits. --Moydow (talk) 21:44, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

New Pages!

Can i get permission too make new pages like the wanted pages. Please and thank you.Motherfan101 (talk) 04:29, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

In order to get permission to create pages, you need to be an autoconfirmed member. This happens automatically when you have been a member for at least 21 days, and have made at least 25 edits. You've met the 21 days requirement, but are still about 10 edits short of the 25 edit requirement. Just keep editing pages, even just to fix spelling or grammar errors, and you'll get there before too long. --Moydow (talk) 15:19, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
Ok I will. thank you.Motherfan101 (talk) 04:00, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Anybody home?

This wiki seems largely dormant. I'm curious, is there any actual community, or any active place for talking with other members of the wiki? I'd love to help out around here if I can, but that'd be kinda hard if I'm the only person around. --Camwoodstock (talk) 00:54, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm still around, but mostly working on other things. The wiki has a channel on the ABXY discord server (run by the owner of Strategy Wiki), if you have a discord account, and my username on it is tacopill#1781. If not, I can keep discussing here. Tacopill (talk) 00:59, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Varick: Yes some of us are still around but I do need to update the news and such to reflect that we are alive.

Mother (video game) rename.

Hi, several users myself included suggested we should have the permission move the "Mother (video game)" page to its proper western name "EarthBound Beginnings". As you were the creator of this wiki I was wondering about your opinion if this would be a good idea? SupaToad64 Toad.jpg 03:02, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Yea, I think that shouldn't be a problem. Sorry for the delay in my response. Tacopill (talk) 23:43, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
No problem, I understand you could be busy with other things. The thing is the page is currently protected from being moved so no one can change the title as of right now. SupaToad64 Toad.jpg 03:55, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Looking at the edit history the page was previously moved but has been reverted. I'm guessing EggOfReason accidentally undid the move when reverting an edit. SupaToad64 Toad.jpg 11:25, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
I moved it yesterday and EggOfReason didn't move it back. Not sure why it would be showing the old name, but it shouldn't be now. I also lowered the move protection for the article, since it has been a few years now. Tacopill (talk) 12:20, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Cool thanks a lot. It was understandable back then since the title was new, but now the game had been out for 4 years and the new name is dominating the search results. SupaToad64 Toad.jpg 14:48, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
