Welcome, OmegaToad64, to WikiBound!

WikiBound.png

Welcome to WikiBound, OmegaToad64! We're a wiki that aspires to cover everything about the Mother series. We hope to see you contribute, whether it be by editing articles, or by participating in discussions.

  1. Be sure to read the help page, it will tell you everything you need to know about wikicoding.
  2. Always keep an eye on the recent changes page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or logged-in) are listed.
  3. Try to expand the information found in articles, and keep an eye out for any false info or vandalism.
  4. Talk to your friends about us; get more users! It's always more fun to edit with friends.
  5. Discussion of any aspect of the site can be made on the community portal page or on the "discussion" page associated with each article. If you write on a user's "talk" page, that user will get an alerting message on their next visit.
  6. If you need help with anything, talk to one of our administrators who can answer most of your questions and assist with problems.
Thanks, and have a good time here, !

Vandals

I keep the vandalism because it's evidence that I gained recognition here and it makes me feel internet famous. Also they're kinda funny at the same time so... lol yeah also keeping them for laughs. OmegαToαd64 Toadsig.png 04:41, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Greetings!

First and Foremost, thank you for contributing a significant amount to the wiki. It is really appricated.

Second, I was wondering if you are staff on any wikis and/or if you have an account on Discord.

Tacopill (talk) 14:59, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for my late response. I'm actually not a staff anywhere or have plans for joining discord as of right now.

That said I'm really glad my contribution is appreciated. I normally don't have as much free time as I do now, but when I do this is usually the first wiki I go to. I'm a huge fan of the EarthBound series and I want this wiki to be a reliable source for EarthBound information. SupaToad64 Toad.jpg 10:32, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

That's fine if you don't have an account, nor plans to get one. Was just wondering.
And pretty cool that you want that.
And being busy or late is understandable. If you do find your self with a decent amount of free time in the near future and/or get higher-than-usual amounts of free time after that, let me know.

A problem

What can I do to be a staff here? -StarFoxNook (talk) 08:35, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

From what I know there is no actual place for users to request, and instead the staff will see a user's edits and decide if they're fit for the role. Here they look for users who have made a lot of dedicated work to the wiki and can be trusted with the tools such as blocking. See here for a better idea.
If a suitable candidate is found a bureaucrat will then leave a message on the user's talk page (The owner Tacopill is currently the only active bureaucrat on here) to ask if they're interested in the role. Omegα Toαd 64 Toad.jpg 10:01, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
Ok. Thank for answering my question. -StarFoxNook (talk) 11:56, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

SmashWiki IP

Not sure if you'll get this in time, but if the IP doesn't stop messing with your talk page, it's best to ignore it for a few hours. Hopefully the admins will deal with it in the morning. Cookies and Creme 08:07, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Yeah I'm mostly just removing the spam. I actually have plans on doing an RFA there someday, not yet though. Omegα Toαd 64 Toad.jpg 08:15, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

NintendoWiki

Hey Toad, I was visiting the NintendoWiki and browsing the WikiBound page and I saw your real first name. So I have one question, do you think this should stay or should it be removed from the wiki. I know you want to keep your name a secret. (and yes, I am that S3AHAWK guy from SmashWiki, just keeping wikibound buisness out of smashwiki) S3AHAWK (talk) 06:40, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

I personally think it's fine to keep it there, at least for now. It's usually always my last name that I want to keep a secret due to obvious personal reasons. Omegα Toαd 64 Toad.jpg 07:40, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
ok, just wondering. S3AHAWK (talk) 18:53, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Creating new Pages

Hi, Why can't I create new pages? I cannot even create my own user page. Is this really wanted behavior? Regards Meleemeister (talk) 08:22, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

You need to be autoconfirmed to create pages. To become autoconfirmed you need to have been an active user for several days and make a certian amount of edits. Omegα Toαd 64 Toad.jpg 02:10, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
To Be more specific, 21 days with 25 edits. S3AHAWK (talk)S3AHAWK SIG.png 04:49, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer. But why is this not mentioned on this page Help:New_page? I really don't understand why Wikis apply these restrictions. If someone really vandalizes the wiki all can be reverted with a single click, so theres really no point for such harsh restrictions. Maybe 1 or 2 days waiting is enough. Meleemeister (talk) 10:53, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@MeleeMeister. WikiBound:Users is what you are looking for. S3AHAWK (talk)S3AHAWK SIG.png 06:36, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
@MeleeMeister It's not just vandalism. Some people use their userpages as a personal profile, so wikis commonly apply restrictions to make sure they are actual serious editors and not just here to play with their userpages. This isn't really an issue here (hence why we currently don't have userpage restrictions) but we still expect people to help.
Also you need to know that only us admins have the ability to delete pages, regular users don't have the ability to delete spam/vandal pages. Given out number of staff is low, with only Tacopill and Varik being the only active admins (or I would be much more active right now too, if only our laptop and my phone chargers weren't broken), vandals creating spam pages would definitely be a problem if no admins are active.

stuff to delete

there's stuff marked for deletion here: Category:Marked_for_deletion Results May Vary (talk) 03:01, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Discord

Hey, if you are still using Discord, I sent you a friend request and am looking to ask you stuff in the DMs. Tacopill (talk) 21:53, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't use discord but I am willing to discuss things here if you'd like. OmegαToαd64 Toadsig.png 23:09, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

I. Am. You.

See? xD — OmegaToad94 (talk) 23:59, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Just be careful

Hey I noticed you blocked Redman, did they try to edit anything that you caught that I didn't? In general unless the name is an obvious sockpuppet or vulgar just leave it be. We turned on settings that page edits from unconfirmed users have to be approved by hand so there is not any danger. It's fine, I did the same thing the other day, just watch out to not ban real users. - --unsigned comment by GeneticistVarik (talk - contribs)

Apparently they tried vandalizing your talk page and Lydia according to the moderation log. OmegαToαd64 Toadsig.png 01:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Got it, that's why I asked. Thanks. - --unsigned comment by GeneticistVarik (talk - contribs)

Ad related issue?

Could you please elaborate on what you meant in:

America‎; 23:43 . . (+4,015)‎ . . ‎OmegaToad64 (talk | contribs | block)‎ (→‎Areas of interest: Temparory save cause these ads are causing issues)

Are ads causing specific issues for editing? Trig - 17:07, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Previously when ads were popping up while logged in they would often get in the way when trying to click on a certain place on the page or the save/preview button, sending me to another page and forcing me to reload and write everything from scratch. It seemed like it may have been just something with my system.
Anyway ads when logged in seems to have been fixed so I don't thing I'll be running into any more issues. --OmegɑToɑd64 Toadsig.png 22:41, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I reached out about that being an issue, so we should be good to go :) Trig - 16:15, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Layout & functionality updates

Hello, OmegaToad64! I recently joined Grifkuba's Wiki Team and Tacopill promoted to Interface Admin. Right now, I think you're the most active user out there and I wish I could talk with you about specific things this wiki needs, such as updated/better templates, layout, visuals, etc. I'm about to help updating Timeless here because it's still blank. —Lakelimbo (talk) 13:20, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

I am probably the most active user here so you can ask me anything you want. --OmegɑToɑd64 Toadsig.png 00:19, 31 May 2021 (UTC)
Is there any way I can contact you more easily? You can show me more directly things you want to be updated. :) —Lakelimbo (talk) 13:17, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Probably here is the best place for discussing stuff since I don't use social media or other similar sites. Guess I could mention I do sometimes use the SmashWiki discord, though I'm not much of a discord user so even there might not be as responsive. --OmegɑToɑd64 Toadsig.png 13:27, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
Alright, sorry for taking so long, lol. As you have noticed, I updated the Timeless style here. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. :) —Lakelimbo (talk) 12:49, 17 June 2021 (UTC)


Oh hey again! It's been a while, sorry, got some other things to do. But anyway, continuing this topic: as you might know already, WikiBound is... not the easiest place to browse on mobile. If you do want, we could try to remake a lot of the templates using more modern HTML and CSS properties. —Lakelimbo (talk)

That would be good and helpful for mobile. --OmegɑToɑd64 Toadsig.png 23:50, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
Alright, so I made a few things on my sandbox, what do you think? Now the infoboxes rely more on divs rather than tables. With that I also added two different visuals for the infobox. I will update the page and add more things later. :) (and if you have any ideas, criticism, or something else, please let me know!) —Lakelimbo (talk) 16:51, 27 September 2021 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply. The infoboxes look good, probably the original-like one is good imo. I agree the galleries look awful on mobile, so your suggestion should fix it. Also, the shop tables do have an option for images right? Since we use them on Mother 3's tables, and also I have a future plan to implement it for the other 2 games.
