Topics on the main page

Should wikis be posted on the main page? Tacopill 17:11, 21 October 2010 (UTC).

News

What exactly should be put in the news section? A 14:03, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

This is what i see it being:
  1. N-Wiki Related News
  2. NIWA Related News
  3. Any news from any of the members
Tacopill 16:40, 12 November 2010 (UTC).
I'd also add important Nintendo-related announcements, like new consoles, news relating to important persons in the company, and other related announcements. Maxite 01:37, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
Definitely. Just please, make sure you submit news here. Not that anyone has done so, it's just a preemptive suggestion :D. Tacopill (Talk) 07:59, 12 December 2010 (UTC).

Templates

Something has come to my mind, we have a gazillion of templates, and I wanted to ask, is there really a use for them? Specially all the thousands of color templates we have, that, apparently, are not very useful. Tucayo (Talk)

Any specifics? Tacopill 04:02, 14 November 2010 (UTC).
  • Template:Wii color dark
  • Template:Wii color
  • Template:Wii color light
  • Template:Excitebike color
  • Template:Excitebike color dark
  • Template:Excitebike color light
  • Template:Big Brain Academy color dark
  • Template:Big Brain Academy color
  • Template:Big Brain Academy color light
And so on. Tucayo (Talk)
Just so you know, Each of those are actually being used here. And i plan on using them in other places. Tacopill 04:31, 14 November 2010 (UTC).

Countdown

Been done for a week now... -7 days? HavocReaper48 17:31, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

We currently have no upcoming games to replace it. Do you have any suggestions? Tacopill 19:59, 27 November 2010 (UTC).
Are these for worldwide releases, or for a specific region? --Vince220 22:16, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I belive they are regional, since all the dates are for the US (as far as i know). We can modify the template to be region based, if you guys wish. Tacopill 00:15, 28 November 2010 (UTC).
I was only asking because if it's US-based, you could put in a countdown for Super Mario All Stars 25th Anniversary Edition which comes out on December 12th. --Vince220 01:20, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

copying

I noticed that the Nintendo article was copyed from wikipedia. just thought I'd point that out.

How so? Tacopill (Talk) 20:22, 10 December 2010 (UTC).

sorry, I manked up on two levels: it wasn from a NIWA wiki not wikipedia and I noticed that is alowed......

It's not a problem. But still, if you know of anyway we can change it so it's no longer a copy, i encourage you to make an account an edit the page. Tacopill (Talk) 21:42, 11 December 2010 (UTC).

IP addresses

For some reason, every IP Address user editing matches the one I use (75.126.149.175). Is this some sort of glitch? A 23:08, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Ah-huh! so you're 75.126.149.175; anyway, It is a glitch. Archaic of Bulbapedia (our webmaster) has been made aware of it, and will get it fixed. Thank you for reporting it, Tacopill (Talk) 05:36, 14 December 2010 (UTC).
Actually, I just checked, and I'm actually 71.65.124.126, not that one. A 13:25, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Man! I thought we had him/her/you/it! Aw well, we we get them eventually. Tacopill (Talk) 19:41, 14 December 2010 (UTC).

does niwa have a youtube page???

if not... i have an idea
um.... no? Tacopill (Talk) 01:48, 17 September 2011 (UTC).

wellbutrin

Hello! . Why, hello there. Tacopill (Talk) 00:08, 8 February 2012 (UTC).

Is there something wrong with the external links query?

I tried updating my userspace with contact information for Starfy Wiki and some other places (as ordinary external links) such as Youtube where I'm active. As expected, this caused the external links query to appear, though it seems no matter what I enter into the box, the Wiki doesn't let me submit the edit (I entered 'Mario' on the "Who is Nintendo's mascot?" question [no it's Weegee] for the edit submission page to refresh with a different question). Is this a problem for everybody else, or am I the only person to experience this? --Torchickens 23:29, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Yea, that extension is broken, and we currently can't find anyone to fix it. We did find someone to upgrade us, but he doesn't have time to fix the extension problems, like the countdown on the subjectpage. So, it is being worked on, and will be fixed as soon as possible. Tacopill (Talk) 00:40, 22 February 2012 (UTC).
OK. Thanks for the clarifying. Glad to know that it wasn't just me. :) --Torchickens 01:19, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Not a problem... happy to help, I think *lol*. Tacopill (Talk) 02:11, 22 February 2012 (UTC).
Updated all the extensions. Tappy 06:33, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Thank you Tappy! Tacopill (Talk) 00:56, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Spelling Mistake

At the bottom of the NIWA section letting you update the news, the word something is mispelt. Unfortunately I cannot edit the Main Page so I'm asking somebody who can. JORDAN DEBONO 13:18, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Fixed. Thank you very much for telling us.Tacopill (Talk) 00:00, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Wow...

This wiki doesn't have lots of users right? Insert Pokéname 03:47, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

It is a bit strapped for users, yes. The main people you'll see around are me and Tacopill, even though I haven't done much lately. I've been a tad busy. Toast Wii U U.pngltimatum 20:57, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry but I have a question...

Does anyone ever change the "Editors Pick" and "Console" sections of the Main page?Insert Pokéname 17:08, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

As of right now, no they haven't changed. We currently don't have much of a community to choose it. If you are interested, please recommend articles for one or the other, and I can ask the skype group related to this wiki for opinions. Thank you, Tacopill (Talk) 22:41, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Copying possible?!

Yo what's with This: http://nintendo.wikia.com/wiki/Nintendo_Wiki...?! 1. is this part of this website or a fork 2. Who's ripping (off) Who?! — Mount Pajama (talk) 22:52, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

1. Neither. The Wikia (or "Fandom" as it is now known) Nintendo Wiki has no relation to this one.
2. Nobody's ripping off anybody.
