Super Smash Bros / Re: Characters "home" games
February 08, 2011, 04:27:44 AM
Let's see...I've played Mario, Sonic, Pokemon, Kirby, Donkey Kong, Metroid, and Star Fox. I never have actually touched the Legend of Zelda, which is quite odd, I would imagine.

I'm playing Modern Warfare 2, as I have been for months (I really should get Black Ops...), and also Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Alas, as is always done, Lakitu saves Birdo and places her back on the track.
The Lounge / Re: Copyrights on Wikis
February 06, 2011, 03:10:28 AM
It depends on what the wiki's policies are regarding copyrights, namely whether or not the wiki's licensing covers both their text and images. You'll have to read what the wiki in question says about their copyright policy.

Most wikis automatically release their contributors' text contributions under a specific license, but allow their users to license their own images with a license chosen from a list of available options (for instance, some wikis allow editors to retain all copyrights, while others, such as Wikipedia, require editors to only upload images that they release under specific free licenses). You'll just have to read what the wiki in question says about their copyright policy and see whether your images must be released under the CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 license, or if they allow you to release your images under a license that you desire.
The Lounge / Re: NGP vs. 3DS
January 30, 2011, 06:15:10 PM
I probably won't get either one for a long while. If I had to get one, though, NGP seems like a great system, but I'd rather get the 3DS - it's more appealing to me because of its features and the fact that I'm a Nintendo fan. Heck, I've never owned a non-Nintendo video game console. I get Nintendo systems so that I can play all the Nintendo-exclusive titles (like Mario), and then play everything else (Call of Duty, Need for Speed, etc.) on my PC.

Hi! I joined this forum in December, though I never formally introduced myself. I'm 16-year-old Kevin, and am a general fan of Nintendo (aren't we all in one way or another?). I am currently registered with all NIWA wikis. I am active at Nookipedia and am a lead editor there, which is odd, because I haven't played Animal Crossing for a long time. I guess I just found a lot of edits to be made there.

I've also contributed to Donkey Kong Wiki, SmashWiki, MarioWiki, Bulbapedia, and Wikirby, but not extensively. I consider myself to only be active on Nookipedia - everywhere else, I usually just pop out on random occasion when I see something I can contribute to. I also am very active at Wikipedia, which is basically where my whole wiki-experience began.

Anyway, I might not be too active here, but I'll try to be.
The Lounge / Re: Skype vs. IRC - the ultimate battle!
January 27, 2011, 03:46:49 AM
Each has its advantages and disadvantages in my opinion. IRC is, I think, the most efficient way to communicate with others, because anyone can access it at any time without hassle. No need to add contacts or install any programs - just log in and you're set, unlike Skype. However, Skype is much prettier, has a much shorter learning curve (it took me a while to become accustomed to IRC), and has a bunch of nifty extra features, such as playing games with others or uploading files.

For personal communication with friends and such, I prefer Skype. For the purpose of NIWA, though, I'd choose IRC, simply because I think it's the most efficient way of communication.
