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, !

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.
