Template:CharactersRecruitmentBox

Sure. I'll accept.--TW 14:08, 1 September 2010 (PDT)

when you have a moment

When you have a moment, do you mind looking over LW:TS? I would like to know if it's clear, understandable and comprehensive. If not, please put feedback on the page's discussion page. Thank you very much. [Tacopill|(talk)] 15:45, 1 September 2010 (PDT).

a conversation is going on!

Hey there is a conversation you may wish to part take in Template_talk:Character-cotm#October_2010_Suggestions. Before contributing to the conversation, please look at Template:Character-cotm. Thank you, [Tacopill|(talk)] 11:22, 12 September 2010 (PDT).

Oh!

I hadn't realized that the titles you had put for Command in-game history were official, they seemed a bit corny so I changed them to something that seemed to fit the events better, guess I should just stick with 64 and editing content itself.

two things!

  1. Would you be intersted in writing some template dcoumentation?
  2. Do you have skype? if so, would you like to contact me at tacopill? if not, do you mind downloading and installing it?

[Tacopill|(talk)] 10:31, 19 September 2010 (PDT).

  1. As of right now, no. Though once we have some more good sized pages I'll be glad to help.
  2. Unfortunately, I don't have Skype and I don't think my computer would be able to make use of it. I believe it's an audio chat program, correct? I don't have a microphone for it and either way, my computer's pretty slow lately.--TW 10:43, 19 September 2010 (PDT)
  1. Sounds good. When this comes to be, contact me. I will come up with a few that you can help out.
  2. It's actually a text-chat program, similar to AIM, YIM and MSN. It also has built in group-chats, video and audio, but those aren't requirements. You can simply stick to text-based chatting, if you wish.

Hey, dude

I want to talk to you in private about some things (don't worry, you're not in trouble or anything :P) and I was wondering what the best method of contacting you is. I'm considering you for a staff member, but I'd feel more comfortable with promoting you if I knew a little more about you, first, is all. If you're interested, just let me know how to get in touch with you off-wiki. And by the by, thanks for working so hard on this project. I appreciate it greatly!—Neo(Talk) 06:20, 30 September 2010 (PDT)

Unfortunately, the best way would be e-mail, but that is currently causing some problems so I'll give you that later. As for your asking me for staff role, I'm honored. I must admit though, I'm not sure if it's something I'd be absolutely interested in. Would be possible to try it out for a while and see how it goes?--TW 15:34, 30 September 2010 (PDT)
Sure! It's not mandatory or anything. If you don't want to do it, you don't have to. I just think you'd be an asset from what I've seen in your contributions. I just would prefer to talk to you a little first so I can get to know you. Almost like a job interview :) Anyways, let me know if you can find some way to talk in private.—Neo(Talk) 07:27, 1 October 2010 (PDT)

Would you be interested?

Would you be interested? in participating in Recruitment-palooza!? [Tacopill|(talk)] 22:30, 5 October 2010 (PDT).

No, but thanks for asking.--TW 17:22, 6 October 2010 (PDT)
It's ok. and your welcome. [Tacopill|(talk)] 18:14, 6 October 2010 (PDT).

Skype

Hey, would you be interested in joining us on Skype? It's a free instant messaging program which we use to keep in contact with one another and talk about the wiki. It's free, it's useful, and it's great. If you want to download it, this link will pull up the "download menu." Download Skype
Not mandatory at all, but it helps the staff to talk to one another and get to know the people they work with a little better. I love it and use it for like 5 different wikis :P
If you decide to join us, add me on there and I'll add you to our chat. My skype name is sirtweek. Ciao!—Neo(Talk) 18:31, 6 October 2010 (PDT)

While I would like to, the computer I use is fairly limited on available memory, so I can't download anything right now. Sorry.--TW 18:52, 6 October 2010 (PDT)
Understandable. If you get a new one, though, remember Skype! :P—Neo(Talk) 04:59, 7 October 2010 (PDT)

was wondering

Hey, i was wondering if you are currently a member of NIWA's forums? [Tacopill|(talk)] 22:21, 12 October 2010 (PDT).


You're Invited!

Template:FilesRecruitmentBox

Okay, I'll try.--TW 11:16, 16 October 2010 (PDT)

Just a reminder

Hey, don't forget to replace the links to the file ||Krystal Command.jpg|| with the one you have as a replacement. I recommend checking these links for helpful tools. [Tacopill|(talk)] 18:51, 17 October 2010 (PDT).

feelings on the Merger?

Hey, i was wondering what you feelings on the merge was? [Tacopill|(talk)] 10:45, 21 October 2010 (PDT).

I don't 100% understand it, but it seems fine with me. Foxdude54 15:54 EST, 21 October 2010
Well, if there is any specfici things you are wondering, just ask. Either myself, Neo or BNK should be able to help you out. [Tacopill|(talk)] 13:17, 21 October 2010 (PDT).
Well, what I want to know is this going to be like combining into one wiki, or is it just sharing info? Foxdude54 16:29 EST, 21 October 2010
I believe this is how it is going to be: Combining the wikis, with our stuff taking precedence. There wiki will go inactive with a message saying they have moved here (only wikia itself can get rid of a wiki). They will bring over their content, and supplement it with ours (especially pages we don't have yet). Their staff will combine with our staff to make a super-staff. There's probably more, but i can't think of anything else at the moment. I will see if Neo wants to chime in here. [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:02, 21 October 2010 (PDT).

Seems like Tacopill covered all the bases. Ask me if you have any more questions.—Neo(Talk) 14:06, 21 October 2010 (PDT)

I have to say, I think I'd have preferred waiting until the wiki was a bit older. Maybe as the one year anniversery surprise it would have been announced, assuming the wiki was created in February. One reason I have is that they have a lot of uncited information that I haven't heard before. They also treat the 1993 comic as complete canon. The Falco manga makes sense to be canon because Nintendo put it as part of the game in Japan, but the 1993 comic could have been then, not as of Star Fox 64. I'm sure that it won't matter after a while when everything's been settled. So overall, I'm pretty happy with it.--TW 15:53, 21 October 2010 (PDT)
Once the stuff is brought over, as we work on integration, you can bring something up on continuity through the discussion pages. We shouldn't blindly accept their content, but we shouldn't rip it apart at the get-go. [Tacopill|(talk)] 17:00, 21 October 2010 (PDT).
I'm free today, tomorrow, and Sunday, but if you want to wait until we all have a day off (or something) so that we could all discuss everything at a certain time, that's cool with me. About the uncited info: That was there when I arrived, but I went with it. Most of that stuff is found in the infoboxes, and some of the information allegedly comes from the Star Fox strategy guides (Planet radii, ages, heights, and weights of the characters, etc.), but instead of bringing infobox templates over here, we could use the ones you guys have (which look better and are more simplified). Blue Ninjakoopa 14:51, 22 October 2010 (PDT)
I'm free today (but i have over 50 emails to read), tommorrow afternoon and the rest of the week (unless something comes up), so i am ready when you guys are. [Tacopill|(talk)] 10:54, 24 October 2010 (PDT).
I can't do it today because I have to go into work at 5 and I won't get off until like 2 AM tomorrow morning, and my parents are being douches meanies and making me clean my room. I'm 19, man, I shouldn't have to deal with this crap D:<
Anyways, if you guys want to go without me, feel free. Or we can wait, but I'm never free on weekends. I always work.—Neo(Talk) 11:03, 24 October 2010 (PDT)
If you want, i could just take care of it. I just would need the wiki to go into edit-lock in order to do it, but without interuptions, i could do a bulk of it in a few hours. [Tacopill|(talk)] 12:26, 24 October 2010 (PDT).

Go for it. I'm going to go ahead and promote BNK to bureaucrat, so just be sure to promote any of the other Arwingpedia staff he tells you to. Just do admin, though, and run any crat requests on my talk page.—Neo(Talk) 23:29, 24 October 2010 (PDT)

Sounds good. We will be in edit lock mode in a few hours, once i have prepared everything. [Tacopill|(talk)] 08:39, 25 October 2010 (PDT).

email

Hey, when you get a chance, can you send me an email at bud0011[at]gmail[dot]com? I have some ideas i think you would be interested in. [Tacopill|(talk)] 15:30, 30 October 2010 (PDT).

Okay, I will when I get some time. --TW 15:33, 30 October 2010 (PDT)
sounds good. See you then. [Tacopill|(talk)] 15:48, 30 October 2010 (PDT).

Interwiki Standards

When you get a chance, please take a look at Lylat_Wiki:Corneria/2010-11-9#Interwiki_Standards and discuss the topic on its discussion page. [Tacopill|(talk)] 10:18, 9 November 2010 (PST).


Canon?

What should we do with this link?

Forgot to sign. Foxdude54 09:11, 1 January 2011 (PST)
TW? Tacopill told me to ask about this in November, and you still haven't replied. Foxdude54 17:25, 25 January 2011 (PST)
Yea! what about it! [Tacopill|(talk)] 13:30, 27 January 2011 (PST).

Farewell, Falco comic coverage

are we covering the comic? if so, was the arwingpedia article.... "Bad"...? just curious.... [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:22, 13 February 2011 (PST).

Someone from Arwingpedia already copy and pasted it from Arwingpedia instead of moving it, so we already had the exact same page. Not that it was the greatest anyway.--TW 14:23, 13 February 2011 (PST)
Ah, very well. Moving on. [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:27, 13 February 2011 (PST).

When you get a chance?

When you get a chance, can you please check out this conversation. Thank you, [Tacopill|(talk)] 13:44, 14 March 2011 (PDT).

Sorry i haven't been around lately

Sorry i haven't been around lately. How is the wiki going for you? I see the delete script is working well :). [Tacopill|(talk)] 23:19, 29 April 2011 (PDT).

In truth, this is the first time I've had a chance to get on since February. Unfortunately, I don't think the wiki is growing as fast as it probably should be. The problem is that we don't have a community of editors, just three or four strong editors. I'm pretty sure the reason has nothing to do with us and is because of a lack in fanbase. It's the same reason I think an F-Zero wiki would have a tough time flourishing. Maybe we'll get more activity with the release of Star Fox 64 3D.--TW 06:01, 30 April 2011 (PDT)
Yea, i am hoping that as well. Till that, i am not sure there are a lot of Star Fox fans still out there. (;_;). Anyway, welcome back. When you get a chance, please look at this. Thank you, [Tacopill|(talk)] 06:50, 30 April 2011 (PDT).

Email

Hey, if you get a chance, please check your mail. [Tacopill|(talk)] 12:09, 26 May 2011 (PDT).

Re: Recent Edits

Understandable, but we'll never know for sure since Nintendo isn't likely making another sequel. If they do they'll either retcon or confirm it. I personally think it to be a Goosebumps style spinoff. And even if it isn't, I've never played Command but do Oikonny and Pigma appear in the first level? (I know Pigma only appears as a final boss in some of the more obscure paths, and if any ending is canon it's one ending with Emperor Anglar as final boss) Ghostkaiba297 18:42, 1 June 2011 (PDT)

Information from another site

TW, may I bring some information that I wrote on another site here? I've looked at the revision history and I haven't noticed any contributions to what I had written. I have the text file if necessary. (Wolf O'Donnell 14:13, 6 November 2011 (PST))

Dear Staff member

Dear TW,

We are currently reaching out to all of the Admins, 'crats, and other staff members to see who is still around. Please respond to this if you still wish to be part of the staff. If you no longer do wish it, then we thank you for your time and will remove you from your respective group(s). If you don't respond at all, then we will assume you are no longer interested, and will remove you anyway.

Thank you for your time, tacopill
