Adminship... againEdit

Yes, it seems I was an idiot and lost my password. Either that or I was hacked. So I had to create another account, and I was asking you to give me THE POWER again. Snakeboss16 22:05, 21 October 2010 (EDT)

Greenpickle, check this guy to see if he has the same IP address as Snakeboss. --Gamefreak75
I checked. Snakeboss has never logged in from that IP before. Plus I can't imagine Snakeboss saying something like THE POWER. Vol (Talk)
No, but he clearly has a dynamic IP address and the one of this account is a close match to those of the old one. Of course, without some kind of better proof (this is why people put their public GPG keys on their user pages), we can't just promote this account. Ideas? GP
Oh, it's unlikely someone else has access to your account, as then their IP address would appear in the list. So...remember harder. GP
So then I'm screwed? I'll keep trying to remember my password. LOL, I actually say things like THE POWER a lot with my friend, but it's the first time here. Snakeboss16 18:00, 22 October 2010 (EDT)

I remembered the password! Yes, it was actually, me,  Snakeboss14 . I got THE POWER again! :P

Why was your IP different? Vol (Talk)
I said, dynamic IP. It's not uncommon. GP
What's dynamic IP?  Snakeboss14 
It's what it sounds like. It just means an IP that changes. Many ISPs assign IP addresses dynamically because they only have so many they can allocate, so they need to free them up when some users disconnect - they don't actually have enough to handle every user they have, if they were all online at once. GP


I honestly think that the anon you just blocked should have a longer ban, tbh. --FREAK ~Game  Freak~OUT!

Meh. It's very unlikely he'll be back. For all we know, although even more unlikely, someone else at that address with better intentions might want to edit here some day, and it's better to have vandalism and good edits than no edits at all. GP

Changing the old wikia's nameEdit

Since Wikia doesn't want us to call people to the moved Pikipedia, I suggest changing the old Pikipedia's name to something that indicates that it's outdated and/or abandoned. {EspyoT} 16:30, 25 October 2010 (EDT)

Hmm, I guess, maybe. What, just Pikmin Wiki? GP
I was thinking something like "Pikmin Wikia - The old wiki about Pikmin", but perhaps a bit better. It wouldn't tell users where it has moved to, but it would at least stop them from editing there. Also, naming it Pikmin Wikia could help differentiate between the old and new Pikipedia, but that's not too important. {EspyoT} 15:18, 26 October 2010 (EDT)
Oh, that's your aim; I thought it was mainly disassociating it from us. I was going to say see that forum, but you already have. GP

Hey GreenEdit

It's me >.> I missed too damn much >.> Every time >.> Damn life >.> Well tell me what's up >.> Am I still Admin? >.> Damn I feel awkward >.> Crystal lucario

And yes I'll be back >.> I jsut had a LOT going on >.> ask me about it later or something >.> Crystal lucario
Heeeeeey. Well, uh...we moved. (I put a notice up at the old wiki about it and Wikia took it down...) We have a new admin (Volatile Dweevil). You should vote on policy. I'll promote you right now. GP
Oh... Well... Dammit I would miss that >.> Crystal lucario

Random off-topic pagesEdit

I was looking through WantedPages, and I found that there are quite a few things that shouldn't be there, especially Halo: Reach. Are pages like this and this meant to be here, or were they accidentally imported when moving from Wikia? --SnorlaxMonster 19:57, 27 October 2010 (EDT)

Yeah, I noticed that. They've only appeared in the last few days - actual pages exist too - and a search gives them as being from Halopedia (which is odd, 'cause even if they were moving, they're not Nintendo so wouldn't join NIWA). It's similar to what happened a few days (?) ago, but on a smaller scale. I'll ask Porplemontage. GP
Ah. GP
Yeah, I know real pages exist, I linked to two existing ones. So is this something that you have to go and delete the pages, or it will just disappear? --SnorlaxMonster 20:31, 27 October 2010 (EDT)
Ah, I didn't see that. While it would be interesting to find out what happens if I delete one (I guess either we'd just lose it, it'd give me an error, or it would actually be deleted from that independent Halopedia too), I don't think it'll be necessary. Just wait a bit, see what Porple says. Probably best not to try to edit them either. GP
Sorry about this, but I just removed the links because they were adding the pages to wanted pages. --SnorlaxMonster 05:32, 1 November 2010 (EDT)
Oh, and I found some more that were missed: Halo: Evolutions - Essential Tales of the Halo Universe and Civilian Emergency Instructions/Arcadia State of Emergency. Make sure to delink them after they are deleted or they will show up in Wanted Pages. --SnorlaxMonster 05:39, 1 November 2010 (EDT)

I'm Back!!Edit

Not sure if you remember me from a while back, but I am back, more mature, and A LOT more knowledgeable with Wiki coding. Anyways, I just stopped by to say hi. --Eduardog3000

...Hi. The name sounds familiar, at any rate. GP


GP, I need your help. Do you think it is possible for you to make a bot that can import items from a wikia to a wiki, specifically Kirby Wikia to Wikirby? --FREAK ~Game  Freak~OUT!

Items? Can't you just use special:export/import? GP
Problem is, I am completely horrible with such mediawiki techonology or whatever it. :( --FREAK ~Game  Freak~OUT!
By items, do you mean all pages, or pages about items? You need a list: would it be special:allpages for each namespace, or something like category:items? GP
Every single thing like we did for here. --FREAK ~Game  Freak~OUT!
Well, all pages can be transferred using special:import/export, and that's what I did here; but since it's a merger, you need to merge them manually to avoid conflicts. What Lylat Wiki did to merge Arwingpedia transfer everything to the Arwingpedia: namespace (edit exported XML file), then merge everything manually from there. What this can't do is transfer images, though; for that, I could do something, but this is better because it preserves past versions of the image, and their uploaders. It looks quite involved, though, and requires root access, so you'd have to talk to whoever has access to the serve. GP


Does Pikipedia have a policy on blocking? I'm not quite sure if I should or should not have blocked this user. Should I have given a warning first? Vol (Talk)

We don't have a policy, no. I would say if it's not obviously vandalism, warn them first; and even if it is, and looks more like just seeing if the page will actually change when they edit it, I'll just warn them. But then, I'm quite lenient. As I see it, you should only resort to blocking when it's necessary, as blocking a user who means no harm will probably put them off editing, but if a user vandalises again we can always revert it. GP

thank you!!!gp i owe yo one...two...A DOZEN!!!thanks i agree there should be a warning.since the day after i signed up...i was blocked.i wasnt even sure what i was doing i saw the edit so...edited.-turtwig389

Recent editsEdit

Hey, why do I see a load of changes to your userpage whenever I go to Recent Changes?  Snakeboss14 

Because I was making changes. The monobook.js were developing this, this and this. GP

Adminship on old wikiEdit

I decided to change the name of the old wikia to WikiPikmin to avoid confusion. May I have adminship on it? Vol (Talk)

Done. GP

MarioWiki linksEdit

They seem to be broken because they are missing the 'h' at the start of 'http'. --SnorlaxMonster 21:09, 12 December 2010 (EST)

Fixed. GP
