Hey, thanks for all the great edits you've been making recently. I see you've started creating pages in the Notes namespace; is this text in the pages you're creating manually transcribed from the game, or copied from the game files? — Soprano(talk) 03:35, October 17, 2023 (EDT)

Hey, thanks for the compliment. To answer your question, I’ve been manually transcribing them from the games. If that’s the wrong thing to do let me know. I’ll stop updating them in the meantime. — Chazmatron 14:41, October 17, 2023 (BST)
Yeah, pages in the Notes namespace are supposed to contain text from the game files (though some of the older ones are manually transcribed). Espyo's been creating notes pages for treasures and will probably get to enemies later, so for now it's best to wait for that to happen. — Soprano(talk) 01:43, October 18, 2023 (EDT)

Disambiguation pages[edit]

You've been creating a few disambiguation pages recently, but I think you may misunderstand the purpose of these pages. The reason to have a disambiguation page is when there is ambiguity in what a reader is searching for. This is most important when multiple articles would otherwise have the same name. On Pikipedia we have lots of redirects from the name of a real-world thing to the name of an article so people who don't know the official name can still find what they're looking for by searching, but if that real-world thing could apply to multiple pages, then a disambiguation page is needed. Disambiguation pages are not needed for pages which share a word in their title, since they wouldn't really help people searching the wiki to find the right page. One thing to note is that the page title only needs to have "(disambiguation)" when there's an article that deserves the main title (e.g. Gear for the upgrade mechanic and Gear (disambiguation) for a list of treasures that are gears) or when no article deserves the main title (e.g. Challenge Mode (disambiguation)). — Soprano(talk) 03:59, November 11, 2023 (EST)

AH my bad, my bad. So instead it would be something like 'Pear' as there's the Crunchy Deluge and the Tremendous Sniffer, which are both pears. Similar to the Melon one which has the watermelon, cantaloupe melon and ones from Pikmin Bloom. — Chazmatron(talk) 10:01, November 11, 2023 (BST)
