thank you.

thank you for trying to keep the wiki active. WikiSysop 01:51, 29 August 2010 (UTC).

You're welcome. I'm basically trying to keep it active so if other users join, it won't just be nothing. Creating the articles would create enough leeway for someone to expand it. A 13:16, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
cool & good luck with it. I apologize for not being active myself; between job hunting, family gong back to school, getting some gaming in and helping launch the star fox wiki, i haven't had much time for this. Once some of that is cleared up, i plan on becoming more active. WikiSysop 16:33, 29 August 2010 (UTC).
Okay and thanks. A 22:07, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Admin

Since you know more about earthbound than i do and you look like a reliable editor, I've promoted you an administrator. This. of couse means, i know longer need to patrol your edits. :D Tacopill 00:35, 17 September 2010 (UTC).

Thank you. I'll keep up with the game and help especially with the SSB series and console articles. Again thank you. A 00:43, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome, and that sounds good. On a side note, do you have skype. If so, do you mind adding me? if not, do you mind installing it? Tacopill 00:55, 17 September 2010 (UTC).
I don't have Skype, and can't download it because I'm pretty young, and not allowed to download Skype or join forums. I can use AIM though, but I forgot my password for that. A 00:59, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, if you do ever come on aim or skype, be sure to look me up...(if i remember to sign on to aim..once and a while). Tacopill 22:20, 16 September 2010 (MDT).

New Main Page

I'm done with my Main Page revamp, but before I implemented it, I figured I would ask your opinion on it. Is there anything that you can think of to add or tweak? →Tinā δ 15:30, 6 October 2010 (MDT)

I really like it, and don't see anything wrong with it. A 19:16, 6 October 2010 (MDT)

new affilaite

i thought you'd like to know, we got our first affiliate! It is with a sonic wiki. Their inter-wiki code is stw:. Would you mind updating the Smash bros articles to include inter-wiki links? Tacopill 19:45, 11 October 2010 (MDT).

I wouldn't mind to update the Smash Bros. pages for these. A 05:34, 12 October 2010 (MDT)
Sounds good. Thank you very much. Tacopill 13:08, 12 October 2010 (MDT).
You're welcome. It turns out that only three pages on the whole wiki mention the series. A 15:19, 12 October 2010 (MDT)
Works for me. More traffic to them, More traffic to us, or just more traffic is always a good thing. Tacopill 15:25, 12 October 2010 (MDT).


Affiliation

Hey, if you are friends with any other people who run wiki's, would you mind asking them for affiliation? Nothing big, keep each approach small and personal. Tacopill 21:25, 12 October 2010 (MDT).

Sure, I guess I could, although I don't really think I know anybody who runs a wiki that isn't part of NIWA, affiliated with it, or affiliated with WikiBound. A 05:58, 13 October 2010 (MDT)
That's fine. I am trying to give you and Tina practice in various aspects run a wiki, with this task being "Asking for Affiliation". It is why i am keeping the goal small, and only going after wiki's we are familiar with. Keep in mind: AC Wiki, FE Wiki and other NIWA affiliates, are affiliated with NIWA itself, and that doesn't count for our affiliation. Tacopill 10:20, 13 October 2010 (MDT).
Okay. A 14:21, 13 October 2010 (MDT)

Transparencies

Do you think images like this one should be made into transparencies. Tacopill says it's up to you and Tina. Metroid King Ω 15:58, 13 October 2010 (MDT)

I think that they should. A 16:24, 13 October 2010 (MDT)

Project Enemy

Hi, Turtwig A. I neede your help/permission to start a new project, Project Enemy. It will be for improving articles about enemies, such as Coil Snake, or bosses like Starman Jr. So, could I please help out WikiBound with this new project?--RamblinEvilMushroom 11:12, 17 October 2010 (MDT)

Sure you can. The whole project thing needs to be fully sorted out though. If you'd like, I can even make you project leader of it. A 11:38, 17 October 2010 (MDT)
Awesome! That would realy help my wiki reputation. When I started as a member on Bulbapedia, I messed up everything. Now that I got some experience, I'm gonna try to make WikiBound totally rad and gnarly! Thanks, A. Do you need help sorting things out? RamblinEvilMushroom 16:25, 18 October 2010 (MDT)
Well you could give your input on the to-be projects page and format of project pages. A 16:28, 18 October 2010 (MDT)

Project Links

Hey turtwig, i got something cool to show you.

Please this code on the bottom of the Brawl page, clear your cache (if needed), and look on the side bar.

{{projectlinks
|bp|page1=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|lw|page2=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|met|page3=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|pf|page4=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|pw|page5=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|smw|page6=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|smashwiki|page7=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|strategywiki|page8=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|stw|page9=Super Smash Bros. Brawl

|ww|page11=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|zw|page12=Super Smash Bros. Brawl
}}

Tacopill 16:12, 18 October 2010 (MDT).

That is pretty cool coding. Just a question though, what does the page parameter of each mean? A 16:18, 18 October 2010 (MDT)
in the case the name on the other wiki is different, or it uses #'s in the name, for example: Ness on Zelda Wiki is avable at Characters_in_Super_Smash_Bros._(Series)#Ness Tacopill 16:24, 18 October 2010 (MDT).
So, if you are interested, here is what i am thinking: you and i take the code i have above and post it on around thew wiki, doing what we can to test it. Once we believe we have enough experience, we go to other wikis and see if they are interested in implementing it. If so, I bring, send or copy over the respective CSS, Javascript and templates and you help them set up the links, if you have an account there. What do you think? Tacopill 19:59, 18 October 2010 (MDT).
Sure. The thing is, only some pages can actually have them, most notably the SSB ones. I believe Bulbapedia was planning to set something up like that earlier, but it blew away with the fifth generation. A 20:31, 18 October 2010 (MDT)
True, only some pages will be able to use them; but it will probably be the simialr pages on every wiki. And do you know if they will go back to it one day? do you know if the code is somewhere in the wiki, already existing? Tacopill 20:40, 18 October 2010 (MDT).
Not exactly sure. Though I do know that they know the code; they already have a part for language links. A 05:24, 19 October 2010 (MDT)
Ok, not a problem. When you think we are ready to export it to other wikis, tell me. The first one we will hit is Lylat Wiki, and once we have them set up, go to the Fire Emblem Wiki and repeat. Tacopill 11:07, 19 October 2010 (MDT).

email

Hey, if you get a chance, could you send me an email at bud0011[at]gmail[dot]com? i have a few ideas i want to share with you. Thank you very much, Tacopill 20:17, 25 October 2010 (MDT).

Okay. A 20:33, 25 October 2010 (MDT)
Sweet! Tacopill 20:38, 25 October 2010 (MDT)
Have to do it tomorrow though, it's now 11 PM here. A 21:04, 25 October 2010 (MDT)
Not a problem. See you then. Tacopill 21:09, 25 October 2010 (MDT).
Actually, I don't think I can email you at all. A tornado apparently passed through my city, so I don't think I'll have internet connection for enough time to do so. A 14:45, 26 October 2010 (MDT)
Sorry to hear it. When you do get internet back, please send me the email. And good luck surviving this. Tacopill 14:57, 26 October 2010 (MDT).
Thank you for the sympathy. The storm has passed, but I don't think I can send the email anymore. If anything, I can do it when the weekend comes. Sorry for having to keep pushing back. A 17:24, 26 October 2010 (MDT)
Not a problem, and sounds good. I look forward to when you can do so. Tacopill 17:28, 26 October 2010 (MDT).

Hey, any luck getting your email back? Tacopill 16:53, 30 October 2010 (MDT).

Not much. A 07:12, 31 October 2010 (MDT)
It's fine. Out of curiosity, Is your email service down? Tacopill 10:55, 31 October 2010 (MDT).
Actually no. Yahoo is working perfectly fine. I just have too much to do. A 16:50, 31 October 2010 (MDT)
It's fine. When your work clears up then. Tacopill 16:53, 31 October 2010 (MDT).
Ok. A 18:23, 31 October 2010 (MDT)

Template Categorization

Template:Support, Template:Oppose, and Template:Neutral need to be categorized, any specific category you want for it? Metroid King Ω 14:21, 6 November 2010 (MDT)

I'm not sure. Maybe "Featured content templates"? A 14:55, 6 November 2010 (MDT)
