two things!

Hey, got two things for you to check out

  1. what do think of the header template here.
  2. and what do you think of what i am proposing here. [Tacopill|(talk)] 10:22, 13 September 2010 (PDT).
Everything looks nice so far. The main page and some of the templates (ex.: this one) look 9001x better than the ones we have at Arwingpedia. After the possible merge, I'll be around a lot more. That being said, I apologize for my inactivity. I have school during the week, and I spent Fridays and Saturdays doing work and applying for colleges. Got a lotta weight on my shoulders, and hopefully all of this works. Blue Ninjakoopa 13:45, 17 October 2010 (PDT)
Thank you for the complements, i will pass them on. And no problems with the inactivity, i completely understand. [Tacopill|(talk)] 15:20, 17 October 2010 (PDT).

Prep work

I've gone ahead and promoted you to bureaucrat and check user, seeing as how you're going to be one of the new webmasters. Tell Tacopill about any of the other Arwingpedia staff who need to be promoted or just do it yourself or whatever :P Just don't do any bureaucrat promotions, because I reserve crat rights for webmasters, mostly. Anyhow...it's late, I just got off work, I'm tired, and I've got homework to do for class today >.<
Anyways...let's all drink to the new Lylat Wiki! =D *opens champagne*—Neo(Talk) 23:35, 24 October 2010 (PDT)

I raise my glass to that. :)
And thanks. Sorry I wasn't here, this week's pretty busy. Blue Ninjakoopa 19:14, 27 October 2010 (PDT)

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|(talk)] 19:16, 25 October 2010 (PDT).

Alright. Thanks for starting the merge, by the way. And I'm pretty much the only active staff member at Arwingpedia besides Dogman, and he knows of the merge and the situation, so we're good. Is there anything you need me to do? I'll be able to get to it tomorrow, hopefully. Blue Ninjakoopa 19:14, 27 October 2010 (PDT)
A few things:
  1. put up a note saying that the merge is going on and interested people should head on over.
  2. check this page out
  3. start downloading and then uploading the images from the other wiki.
In addition to what i emailed you and helping with the staff merge. [Tacopill|(talk)] 19:37, 27 October 2010 (PDT).
1) Check, but I'm not sure how to make it so no one can edit. How do I put on the auto-lock for all pages?
2) I gave some input.
3) Alright. I probably won't finish, but I'll upload a good amount. Blue Ninjakoopa 19:50, 27 October 2010 (PDT)
  1. you could try protecting every page, but that could take hours. And you can't completely disable or delete it, otherwise wikia will notice. hm....
  2. Sounds good. I was thinking, just rename it to star fox wiki, that way people are like "Where did Arwingpedia go?"...well, the 5 people who help that is.
  3. Not a problem. I will also take some of them. Should we delete the pics we get? it would be cruel, and wikia probably won't like it, but it will certainly get people's attentions.
[Tacopill|(talk)] 20:05, 27 October 2010 (PDT).
Yeah.
Alright, that'll work. I'll get around to it.
OK. Could you guys perhaps implement Special:MultipleUpload? It'll make things a lot easier. Blue Ninjakoopa 20:12, 27 October 2010 (PDT)

Sadly, the multiple upload extension is not compatible with MediaWiki 1.16. I know, it sucks, and I miss it :( And sorry I haven't been helping. I'm swamped in homework and work. Gotta keep up with school and gotta make them moneys.—Neo(Talk) 20:47, 27 October 2010 (PDT)

It's not a problem, Neo, it is completely understood. Also, BNK, check out: this page. [Tacopill|(talk)] 21:01, 27 October 2010 (PDT).

NIWA Access

Just gave you NIWA staff access at the forums. Feel free to peruse the staff boards and comment on anything of interest. Ciao!—Neo(Talk) 14:19, 28 October 2010 (PDT)

Is this the same Blue Ninjakoopa that edits on Pikmin Wiki? Because if you didn't know, we are on NIWA now!! Peanut64

It is. He's just busy with School work. [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:07, 30 October 2010 (PDT).
@Neo - Thanks. I'll stop by today.
@Peanut - I was aware.
@Tacopill - The link you gave me in the section above, what is its significance? How are things coming along with the moving of the images, etc.? Blue Ninjakoopa 14:26, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
Which link? And, i am currently working on watching all the pages before i do the files. [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:31, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
This one. Also, is there anything you'd like me to do now (or continue doing; this is to let me know what needs to be done so I don't interrupt anything)? Blue Ninjakoopa 14:33, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
It was to show you that the file pages were already imported. What we need now is the files themselves, along with any articles i missed. If you could, look around this for any article we missed, and then compare them against the logs. On the Logs are pages TW's actions on Arwingpedia's pages. Some have been moved, others have been delete (like they were all speculation). What i need you to do is get me a list of all the articles that were not brought over, but be on the look-out for pages that were brought over and then gotten rid of. Once i have the list, i will bring all the pages into the Arwingpedia namespace. You up for it? [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:56, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
Uh, well they're already listed there, they're just mixed in with other articles. Looks like you just missed a bunch of categories and templates. Could I perhaps start uploading the images that have been moved from Arwingpedia namespace (ex. Arwingpedia:File:Name.png) and move any remaining images? Blue Ninjakoopa 15:21, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
I don't mind, just modify the page before or after the move in order to remove Arwingpedia: from any links (template or regular). Keep any other information from the original page, and feel free to add more information where and when needed (you guys have a lot of file pages with little to know information :D ). If the page already exists before you move it, merge the contents into the destination page, and replace the old one with a redirect. [Tacopill|(talk)] 15:47, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
Did Arwingpedia have a Slippy Article? [Tacopill|(talk)] 17:12, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
Yes, and is it OK if I set the default skin to Monobook? I don't have skin coding for vector. :$ Blue Ninjakoopa 17:20, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
Well, that would be on the list i asked you for :P. Also, do you have server access to change the default skin? [Tacopill|(talk)] 17:56, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
<_< Sorry about that lol, I'll import it tomorrow.
Neo did mention something about certain restrictions to my powers, so I'm not really sure. I am a bureaucrat, and if I do have access, I don't know how to change it.
Right now I gotta take a shower, iron my clothes, etc. in preparation for school tomorrow. I'll hopefully see you then. Blue Ninjakoopa 18:11, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
  1. Not a problem, but this is what i meant. I need help finding all the articles i missed. And do you know how to import under a different name then the name on Arwingpedia? becuase we shouldn't import under it's original name.
  2. Sorry, but you need server access to change the default skin of the site. Also, just so you know, we are currently working on getting a custom skin unique for the wiki. So, yea...
  3. See ya later.

Recent Uploads

Hey, nice to see you around. I just wanted to point out that a lot of the images you've been uploading are duplicates to preuploaded images, mainly Fox concept art. I'm just saying you might want to look up preexisting art before uploading everything. Of course, I could be wrong and we do have to upload even the duplicates. I just wanted to point this out. See ya.--TW 16:22, 31 October 2010 (PDT)

I am aware, but the official artwork I'm uploading is better quality, and the images are larger. Actually, now that you mention it, I think I'm getting in the way; all of this is very complicated. I'm trying to help out with the progress so that when everything is all said and done, no one will go "BNK didn't do anything". Should I just sit back and watch everything happen? (This wasn't written in an angry tone, this is just my perspective.) I actually think I'd be better off fixing the little things after all has been done, to be honest. ;~; Blue Ninjakoopa 16:28, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
No, don't sit back and do nothing, just put a little effort into checking what we already have. For example, this file is one we didn't have. [Tacopill|(talk)] 16:33, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
I didn't plan on that; I just feel as if I'm getting in the way, and to be honest, I am quite lazy, so effort isn't one of my strong suits. But I'm going to try, for the wiki. I'll continue to upload the images and delete the ones that are duplicated. For official artwork images that you don't have, I only have the JPG versions, so if someone could go ahead and convert said JPG files into PNGs, that'd be great. I'm having trouble keeping track. Blue Ninjakoopa 16:39, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
It's okay, I was just pointing the fact out. Most of the preexisting images were ones I uploaded for the Fox, Krystal, and Wolf. I got them from the only active Star Fox site, StarFox-Online, plus PNG files are actually better quality for concept art than JPG, as opposed to screenshots where it's the other way around. I'm kind of confused due to the large of the merge like you. I think you should just do what you want to do. I've mainly been taking what's been imported and adjusting them for this wiki.--TW 16:45, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
Thanks for assuring that. I won't slack; I'll work as much as I can to speed things up, I just wish stuff was organized (not blaming any of you; it's naturally unorganized, and we need things like MultipleUpload or perhaps some kind of bot). I can see us as the biggest online Star Fox Encyclopedia in the near future. It will come gradually. Blue Ninjakoopa 16:48, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
Considering the current status of the Star Fox online fanbase, I wouldn't be surprised if we already were the largest online Star Fox encyclopedia.;) --TW 17:37, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
Yes, and hopefully one day soon, we will start attracting the various fan sites to help unite the fan base. [Tacopill|(talk)] 18:28, 31 October 2010 (PDT).
The only major sits left are StarFox Online and the two Krystal sites, as far as I know. Perhaps an affiliation with them could do some good.--TW 18:48, 31 October 2010 (PDT)
It's a possibility. Do you know anyone who runs these sites? if so, would you be interested in representing us in an affiliate request? [Tacopill|(talk)] 21:30, 31 October 2010 (PDT).

I'll move this back here so we don't write ourselves into oblivion. I don't actually know anyone from those sites since I'm not a member of any of them, I was just posing the idea. I don't actually know how to do this but, if you want to, three sysop members of our site can each ask for affiliation from each site. Say I go to SFO, you go to Krystal Archive, and another goes to KLA. Like I said, I'm not that learned in this.--TW 14:03, 1 November 2010 (PDT)

It's not a problem. One day we will fan out, but not until after the merger, and a few other things on my mind. [Tacopill|(talk)] 22:54, 1 November 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)] 10:19, 9 November 2010 (PST).

Alright.
And while I'm here, I'm letting you all know that I'm currently grounded, and have been for a while, which explains my absence. I leave this message as I have sneaked onto my computer. I hope the merge is going well, and I hope it isn't thought that I'm not doing much. Because of staff laziness, I recently had to call off the merge with WiKirby, and I thought it would be easier to move to an independent domain the way SmashWiki did. Judging by recent changes, the merge looks like it's going well. Once I bring my grades up, I'll be back. Keep up the good work everyone! I must go. Blue Ninjakoopa 16:04, 14 November 2010 (PST)
Ah, sorry to hear it. The merge is going well, as TW is very good with what we asked of him, and Foxdude is busy analysing what we could use and what we can't. And who's staff is Lazy? Obviously not us :D. [Tacopill|(talk)] 17:19, 14 November 2010 (PST).
Of course not you guys. :D Blue Ninjakoopa 14:23, 30 January 2011 (PST)

:(

Still grounded, I haven't been able to do anything. I can't describe how useless this makes me feel. I can use my phone to access the internet for Facebook, but that's the only website accessible (that and the Sprint home website). I'm using the Family Computer to deliver this message with time running out. I hope the merge is still going strong and I send my sincerest apologies to the Lylat Wiki staff for holding them off. You all are doing an excellent job. Keep going strong, I'll be back before you know it. Blue Ninjakoopa 14:23, 30 January 2011 (PST)

Not a problem, Come back to us when you can. And thank you for the complements. They are strongly appreciated. [Tacopill|(talk)] 14:52, 30 January 2011 (PST).

When you get a chance

Hey, when you get a chance, can you please look at this discussion and feel free to join in on it as well. [Tacopill|(talk)] 12:28, 15 May 2011 (PDT).
