Mission complete. Hey! It's the first post of a fresh new page! Sweet --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 19:18, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Referencing changes[edit]

As Bop1996 has pointed out, we need to change our reference policy and help pages to reflect how we now do things. I do think we should revamp them entirely cause they are a little boring right now, however outside of mentioning how to properly cite logbook entries I got nothing. Any opinions? MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 18:24, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Not really much input on this, outside reminding to mention things like certain templates auto-ref and stuff. If we can come up with a clear list of what we need and how, anyone can draft up the changes to help pages. Help pages really need help... I'm thinking we can write them to be more friendly at the very least, more in "my" voice lol --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 20:58, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Wii[edit]

I finally have a Wii (making this edit from it)! I'll try to get MP3 (and the evil game) soon so we can amp up our content from them. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 19:25, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Word. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 19:24, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
And now I have MP3 :). MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 05:19, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
That's how we roll 8) I'm sure you've beaten it by now --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 19:48, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
Yup, did it on Veteran. Normal is just too easy for me and it wouldn't have been as much fun. My Hypermode file has to wait until I finish Skyward Sword (awesome game). I've made it all the way to Phaaze on it... just keep getting completely corrupted before I can destroy AU313. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 08:12, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Hey, Just keep shooting at the weak spots and collecting the Anti-Pazon Capsules!! You can do it!!!--Arcwarioman 18:54, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Mw logo test.png
Haven't been able to get in contact with you on skype, so thought I'd throw it here to see if you like it (click for larger size). ***Super!~Nickno 03:49, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Also, if any changes are needed, or I need to do an overhaul, I am able to, since it is still fresh on my mind. ***Super!~Nickno 04:08, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
It looks great. I think it would make a fine replacement to our 2 year old one. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 07:26, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
And may I just say, HOT!!!!! =D Embyr 75  --Talk-- 00:58, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Superb! <- Noice, it warrants Malake's seal of approval X] --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 01:46, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Hey your good at choosing font colors and stuff. I need help with this. :D ***Super!~Nickno 00:16, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
I thought we were gunna base the skin off Vector? And i'll play a lil with that --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 01:39, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

I think that would be a good logo for the site ( Even though the one at the moment is nice and looks like its from the game Metroid Prime game ( Which is my favorite)) Its a fitting title for this wiki!--Arcwarioman 18:50, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

This logo that you're seein here is based off Other M ;) Nick did a nice job though, the skin's still out there guys, anyone can make suggestions --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 22:09, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
Metroid: Other M Cover
We should make it hot pink with green spots in the background! In all seriousness, I don't think the current blue link text goes too well with the background color. Of the three options on the main page, I think that we could do color 1 as the unclicked link text and 3 as the linked (or the other way around) MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 22:48, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
This may be bold, but if we're using a less opaque background, I think we might wanna raise the font-size by two points to make them thicker, solid enough to be seen. It could be too damned high, though. Like the rent. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 23:08, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Thats funny.. I thought it was based off the title screen of MP3 Corruption.--Arcwarioman 18:46, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Hey, it might not go well with the Current background, but maybe if the background was red maybe?--Arcwarioman 18:50, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

I just got a Idea!!! How about instead of "wiki" being the same font as the Title, have it in sub-title font(if you know what I mean)--Arcwarioman 19:23, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Hmm apparently we're not using a new logo yet at all --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 22:17, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
This. Embyr 75  --Talk-- 22:48, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Also, hi! =D Embyr 75  --Talk-- 22:49, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I inadvertently activated it as I was about to change colors. Hola hola! --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 23:12, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

New Featured Rotation[edit]

Hey man. This discussion regarding our current set up for featured content on the main page (mostly between just me and Bop1996) suggests that our featured content needs to be changed to rotate rather than have just one featured image/article sitting on the main page for a looong time, as we have now (the Tallon Metroid article has been sitting there for nearly a year). However, I have no idea how to rearrange the featured templates we're using now to do that. Is this within your realm of expertise? Embyr 75  --Talk-- 23:45, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Affiliation Request[edit]

Yo! I haven't commented on it myself, but you may want to take a look at this. Good to see you around by the way. =) Embyr 75  --Talk-- 22:46, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Same here! Seems like Metroid really needs a new game haha, that'd make editing a lot funner --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 22:55, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Japanese[edit]

So, I'm not sure to what degree it might be useful, or if it's common around here, but I thought I'd at least put it out there that I can speak/read Japanese, so if there were minor things that needed to be translated just for the hell of it, you could send them my way. — Jyavoc (talkcontrib) 16:01, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Prime series map room structures[edit]

Hi, now that I've returned to help out with Metroid Wiki, I had a concern about some of my recently uploaded files that all included the structures of rooms from Echoes. Ultimately, I wanted to know whether these images would fit the room pages or not or if they were entirely useless. How do you think they could be used? --Wookiee123 (talk) 01:57, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

You can go ahead and add them to the page they belong to if the page is made, same as you'd add something like this. If there's no room you can always add a galleries section. A long time ago I made this badboy: Template:Frigate Orpheon-map to make an clickable map. I wanted to make it a lot better before putting it out, but I guess it ended up being another abandoned project lol. As it so happens, I've been working on a couple of Fusion maps which I'm more positive will work out :] --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 02:10, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Room Map Image Transparency[edit]

Hey! I recently have been converting the room map images into the same form but with the inclusion of transparency, which I personally think adds to the images' attraction. Since most of the images are saved in .jpg and I'm now saving all as .png, I have marked the .jpg images for deletion under the Articles Marked for Deletion category. I was wondering if you could delete the .jpg images marked under the category. --Wookiee 123 09:09, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Yeah no problem! You can use {{ImDel}} for images instead of {{Delete}}, you can leave the ones you've already done the way they are, but I'm thinking I should merge those templates, they basically do the same thing. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 06:16, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Fighting vandalism[edit]

Check out Special:Nuke. Should help fight vandals like what you cleaned up yesterday. -- Prod (talk) 16:06, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm on top of it, I used it to take out 92 pages at once, it looks like I deleted them separately though, thanks :) --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 17:59, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
That guy must really hate Metroidking to spend that much time... Nice work :). -- Prod (talk) 16:37, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Yeah we actually know who it is, this guy who had beef with Zelda Informer and then moved on over to attack us haha. I think he really hates Metroidking because MK instabanned him seconds after he created an account once after cleaning up his messes a couple times in a row. It was nothing, I did it on my iPod while I was texting haha --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 16:57, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
We had a similar problem where this one guy kept creating new accounts with "Arrow is a ..." and vandalizing pages, also after Arrow kept banning his new accounts. Maybe it's contagious? -- Prod (talk) 15:51, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
I honesty find that he's still trying after 3 years amusing, it's not even a pain to handle it now that we have the nuke extension. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 20:41, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
I think he or she is just bored cuz it's summer. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 01:11, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Slideshows[edit]

So I was looking over some extensions on Mediawiki and stumbled upon a slideshow extension. It could see some good use on articles that have a bajillion images. what do you think? MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 23:15, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

that sounds reasonable. I can't see it because I'm on an ipod. I havent had access to a computer in a while. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 01:11, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

News[edit]

Super Metroid was released on June 15, 2013, on the Wii U eShop Virtual Console, but the wiki new's aren't update. Metroid (game) was released on july 12, 2013, on the Wii U eShop Virtual Console, but the wiki new's aren't update. I hope you can change it, thanks. --FH (talk) 16:04, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Almost got a new feature[edit]

The Portal article is currently nominated for featured status. It needs just one more vote to pass, so if you think the article is worth supporting, we can put a new feature on the front page! Embyr 75  --Talk-- 01:56, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

I am going to propose that we give admins autonomous ability to promote featured article. There are two few users to vote, and there are only three active admins, I think we can each trust each others' judgement on placing articles in the featured pool and this way it can be updated with more frequency. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 04:16, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Moving this discussion to the discussion center. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 04:16, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Lack of Interwebz[edit]

My free internet has expired, it might be half a month or so before I get a new service. I'm currently at the library lol :D Just letting you guys know... --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 00:01, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Noooooo! :( Hope to see you back soon. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 02:05, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Spacing[edit]

Hello! When you can, please leave your opinion on the discussion here regarding the additional space recently added between paragraphs. Thanks! Embyr 75  --Talk-- 17:33, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Template savior[edit]

Your time as the sole template savior may come to an end soon, I'm starting a project that has me learning CSS among other languages. Should be able to help with the coding after that :D MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 02:05, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Hooray! Not that you were talking to me, but... Still happy to hear it. :P Embyr 75  --Talk-- 23:38, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
