January 2011[edit]

Hello Metroid Wiki, it is January, the first month of 2011 and many have probably noticed but not paid attention to our little Skype section. Well, MW's Skype happens to be much more successful than MW talk pages in terms of basically getting things done. In other words, most of our major decisions have been made through Skype. That being said, I am going to put this Discussion Center to use—by archiving results of Skype chats. If not, we may end up moving these archives to some Skype archive page. Oh and btw, if you want to join our public Skype chat, it's free and convenient, ask an administrator on his or her talk page. Plus you get to see the more interactive side of Metroid Wiki's staff team and various other active users. Yeah, this section may seem trivial, but I like to have such sections around for easy linking, so don't judge! --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 06:02, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Game Abbreviations[edit]

The official MW game abbreviation list has been upgraded. Various templates and files will be moved to match this list. Specifically, three game abbreviations have been changed: Hunters (hu → mph}, Fusion (fu → mf), Trilogy (tri → mpt) --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 06:02, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Community Box[edit]

The community box on the main page will be redesigned, sporting Metroidy images much like the Timeline, enjoy! --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 06:02, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Visual Touch Ups[edit]

The main page and all infoboxes are receiving slight tune-ups for better viewing. Additionally, game infoboxes will be redone as well. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 00:27, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

April 2011[edit]

Category reorganization[edit]

It has been decided that our categories are in need of reorganization. We will be doing away with Category:Mini-boss, placing any articles and files already in that category in Category:Bosses. This is due to disagreements over the definition of a mini-boss, making consistency in their categorization come into question. While the specifics are still being worked out, Category:Enemies will be also be phased out in favor of undecided categories. These changes will take a while to finalize due to the sheer amount of pages in some of these categories. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 21:01, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

February 2012[edit]

It's that time again, when I get in a Metroid state of mind. I'm obviously nota major factor here, but i like this site and how it works, as well as the good times the staff has had with each other. *reminiscing flashback numero 2* Since my editing knowledge is definitely lacking compared to you guys in a technical standpoint(i.e coding, templates, infoboxes and all that BS, I just copy-paste what you guys make....), so I was wondering if I could just continue with the video series and do a lot of stuff with the forum part of the site, such as articles similar to Malake's remember me section. You know, introduce new ideas to make this wiki more user-friendly, more fun. So sorry about my seemingly inevitable absences, if it makes a difference anyway. I'm a very busy person, socially as well as educationally. I hope my incompetence in terms of editing as well as being a responsible admin is forgiven.

Haha, shut up dude :] You're always welcome here, actually, I'm glad you're here, I started using my channel to add videos for MW, Gamet#Video, since the MWNIWA account has a set pattern on the videos (considering you made them all), so I decided to keep them on my channel since my videos are different. And a lot goes on while you're gone :] Check this link out if you haven't already, opinions please! --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 17:12, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
Your transgressions shall be forgiven as soon as you play every main series Pokèmon game and write a report on why they are awesome ;). Don't worry about it man, we've all been somewhat inactive lately and your situation is totally understandable. You are far from incompetence in terms of editing (remember the user during our first year who shall remain unnamed?). Any time you want we can give you a crash course in any changes we've made or things you may have forgotten. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 18:09, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
EXCELLENT. i kind of just thought that I was a lost cause to this wiki. And by "things I may have forgotten," that's pretty much...well, everything. I attempted to make an article yesterday but i choked as I thought it would look terribly crappy. I think for now I'll go on a crazy video making spree, and then get into the editing stuff. Thanks for accepting me back into the circle of Metroid! And by the way, is Skype obsolete or something? I haven't used it in 84 years so i wouldn't know if they changed anything.
