What Happened?

Did I bring back this wiki? All I did is create an account and then it came back! ShyGuy8 (talk) 23:47, 8 June 2015 (UTC)


Hello and Thank you for all your work on this wiki. I am curious, are you presently staff on other wikis? if so, which ones? Tacopill (Talk) 21:46, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Opinions please

Hey, when you get a chance, could you give me your opinions on this template? Tacopill (Talk) 00:05, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

It's certainly an interesting idea, though the sections that aren't games need some work (it isn't really obvious how some things are related to Nintendo in 2007).
-Toa 95 (talk)
Alright, how does that look? Tacopill (Talk) 00:47, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
It's definitely better. So I guess Yoshiyuki Oyama was hired in 2007? That seems to be the only option I can think of...
-Toa 95 (talk)
He's listed as "Design Director" for Wii Fit, but I guess that isn't notable enough for listing in something like this. Feel free to add, remove, change, etc. to it, on that or anything else. Next I am thinking of doing 2005, and work my way down this category from highest member count to lowest. Tacopill (Talk) 01:28, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
Not really. If we did that then people like Miyamoto should be listed on all of them.
And I guess that works, though there will obviously be more games released on Nintendo's stuff in each year then what we currently have articles for.
-Toa 95 (talk)
You do have a point there. And yea, all wikis are always work-in-progress. :). Tacopill (Talk) 01:44, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
I more meant for years gone by rather than years to come; there were obviously more games released for the NES in 1985 than four (the NES had 18 titles at launch. In fact, perhaps that could be listed in the console template: number of games at launch?).
Also, after seeing that there are articles for both versions of The Simpsons Game, should we really go that in-depth as to cover individual versions of a game? It's one thing to cover Smash for 3DS and Smash for Wii U individually since they have been considered as being individual games, and even that's debatable at best, but for something like this that's less dubious do we really need it?
-Toa 95 (talk)
We could include in the template (are we talking about the infobox or navbox?).
We actually have pages that cover if something like this gets one or two pages, please see Release management and General rules#Coverage & Scope. If neither of them help, then my questions are: is there enough content to warrant two pages? are they largely the same game, with some minor, mostly hardware, differences? etc.
Tacopill (Talk) 22:04, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
I was referring to the infobox. I admit "console template" isn't exactly specific.
And policy is exactly what I'm getting at. Do we absolutely need to cover both versions of a game when the purpose of this wiki (from what I can gather) is just to provide a general overview? The pages you linked to really didn't help me, and there don't appear to be too many differences from what is put on the articles right now that warrant two separate pages.
And for third party games in general, I have to ask: is it really absolutely necessary that we cover literally every game officially released on a Nintendo console?
-Toa 95 (talk)
Ok, I added it to the Console Infobox.
If there aren't much of a difference between them, then merge the two, with the sections & templates aligning as needed.
Not everyone. We were just shooting for specific ones, like ones related to an affiliate, a best seller, player's choice, and/or one a editor requested.
Tacopill (Talk) 23:01, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
The problem with that is that editors can request literally anything, so "specific" once again becomes "literally everything".
-Toa 95 (talk)
That is true. I don't have the power to institute a wiki-wide policy, but if you want to bring it up here and see what other people think, I can see if I can get other people involved in the conversation.
Tacopill (Talk) 22:42, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
Honestly, I'm not sure organizing the template by "eras" is the best idea for organization. I feel like there should be individual sections for teams, and the founder and presidents could get their own I suppose, but that doesn't solve everything.
As for the coverage thing, I'll try and bring something up on the main coverage thread, since that seems like the most appropriate place to put it (and no need to make a new thread when there's already a perfectly serviceable one).
EDIT: Really, though, this about sums up my thoughts: that the extent of game coverage should be anything that Nintendo's published. Though that still leaves a few gray areas.
-Toa 95 (talk)
As I said, it was just an idea. You could also make a lists of people in a specific poisition, like Presidents, COOs, CIOs, CEOs, various Heads of Depts., Founders, etc.
Yea, there's always going to be grey areas. And I can agree to that rule, it is the same as being part of NIWA: Nintendo published it at least once, in at least one region. Like Mega Man II for the Original GB, published in North America by Nintendo in 1991.
Tacopill (Talk) 00:01, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
At the same time, there's also the CD-i stuff. Under this idea it would have to go since Nintendo had nothing to do with it outside of originally licensing their characters out to Philips, though I could see some arguing for it to stay because of what it is to Nintendo (or at least something like that, I guess. I don't really know...).
-Toa 95 (talk)
Yea, CD-i's are controversial, among other things. We need to be careful exactly how to include them. We don't really care if it was canon or not, just if it was worked on and/or sold to the public.
Tacopill (Talk) 01:42, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Well the idea is that the limit for software covered on here would be "published by Nintendo", and the Mario and Zelda CD-i games weren't even published by them, and ven if we ditch game articles I'd imagine there would be some who would want some form of CD-i coverage on here, given its history, even if its not a Nintendo console and even if we don't cover any of the games.
-Toa 95 (talk)
Since the Pages don't exist yet, maybe just replace them with redirects to Zeldapedia? :D.
Tacopill (Talk) 02:38, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Well Hotel Mario already exists as an article here, but if they're not going to be covered on here under the idea, then I suppose we could get away with a redirect to the respective wikis for search purposes.
And thinking about it I guess we could just scrap the CD-i itself anyway, since it was never related to Nintendo to begin with aside from those four games; all we really need is a mention of the outcome of the licensing deal on the inevitable SNES-CD article.

German NintendoWiki

Hello, just wanted to say that the interwiki-links to the German NintendoWiki should be changed to$1 --Your Friend Raltseye (talk) 13:27, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Url problem

Aren't there anyway to fix the url problem at the bulbapedia page? Or are we simply forced to write the numbers in manualy? --Raltseye (talk) 15:29, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Template:Game Infobox

Hello could you fix this template so that it displays the Japanese names in the same maner in jptitle, jptrans, jptrans2, and jptitle2 and so that caption2 works aswell. --Raltseye (talk) 13:14, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

3 things

1. When I go to special pages this error message appear at the top of the page can you do something about it?
2. Can you please empty this category I have marked some things there myself.
3. Shouldn't we have a interwiki-link on the latest changes page just like our german couterpart has? --Raltseye (talk) 21:39, 1 November 2015 (UTC)


Why did you remove the two '' from AlphaDream when we have them all all the other pages? --Raltseye (talk) 23:18, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Bowser Jr.

Hey hey while you're on it why not delete those two images he created as well? --Raltseye (talk) 22:03, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Delete pages?

Since we do not have articles on stages in games why do these two exist? Takamaru's Ninja Castle and Balloon Trip Breeze --Raltseye (talk) 14:43, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Deleting of images and a page

Hello, is this page used if not could you please delete it? I also marked the images not used anywhere else for deletion. --Raltseye (talk) 07:37, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Cross-Wiki Weekend

Hello, since NIWA is holding this Cross-Wiki Weekend shouldn't we also highlight this by stating this in the Site Notice just like Pikipedia? Also while I'm at it shouldn't the Square Enix Wiki line be removed since that wiki is essensially dead? --Raltseye (talk) 19:19, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Few Active Users

Do you know why there are so few people actively editing this wiki? You seem to do virtually everything. I don't know why the editors at Mario wiki don't help here. --Luigi 64DD (talk) 22:10, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Well, in any case, I'll try to improve the wiki. Also, there is something I forgot to ask. I've noticed that some games that are only downloadable don't have any image on their articles. Would it be a good idea to put the game's logo as the image since they have no cover? Thanks! I'll use that template from now on.

Image Classification

Would images such as the below be classified as Game Logos or Cover Art? I think they are technically icons from the DSiWare shop.

I've been calling them Game Logos, but I think that may be incorrect. If it is incorrect, I'll correct them. -Luigi 64DD (talk) 18:33, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks! -Luigi 64DD (talk) 18:36, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

What are the rules on personal images? I checked the Help pages, but due to those not being finished, I couldn't find the answer. -Luigi 64DD (talk) 20:54, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Ok -Luigi 64DD (talk) 21:21, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Do you think it would be a good idea to put Image Galleries in game articles? I'm thinking box art from other countries, a screenshot or two, and maybe some official art. --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 00:07, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Hmm... Who actually decides the rules on this wiki? The wiki seems so empty. --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 00:41, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Well, I'll continue to add stuff. It seems like it's just you and me editing consistently. As for the galleries, I'll just add the box art from other countries. --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 00:54, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

New User

I noticed there's a new user. Am I allowed to create the user's talk page with the welcome template, or is that reserved for staff? --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 03:49, 8 October 2016 (UTC) Ok --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 03:55, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Box Art in Other Releases

In the Other Releases section of articles, should an image of the game cartridge be used in place of box art if no box art exists/is available? --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 20:56, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
OK --Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 21:41, 16 October 2016 (UTC)


The reason I have stopped editing here as much is that I have been editing on Mario Wiki more. I will still try to edit here fairly frequently.--Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 22:32, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Pokémon Sun and Moon

Why did you remove that Pokémon Sun and Moon are due to be released on November 23? --Raltseye (talk) 01:54, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Ah whoops sorry my bad :P --Raltseye (talk) 17:20, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Release Dates

If a game has no release date shown for a given country on said game series' wiki, do you think it would be safe to assume it wasn't released in that country? I'm asking this to determine whether or not to switch out the "??" with "N/A" on series pages where this situation is applicable.
Luigi 64DD.png (talk - edits) 21:06, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

ARMS Institue

The link needs to be added to the side bar, also the link on the main page is also two ] too many. --Raltseye (talk) 16:20, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Cross-Wiki Weekend Project Page

how do you think this came out? feel free to touch it up, correct any mistakes I made, etc. Tacopill (Talk) 01:49, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

The update a disambiguation page was related to pages linking to Disambiguation Pages, so, basically update things that link to it. Also, might want to consider moving them to pages with the text "(disambiguation)" in the title. Tacopill (Talk) 02:47, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Alright, I just didn't think that was really obvious.
-Toa 95 (talk)
I added a link to help clear it up. Feel free to add other stuff if you think it would help.Tacopill (Talk) 02:53, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

German NintendoWiki

I was wondering if there's any point in keeping the German NintendoWiki as an affiliate when it hasn't been updated for a long while and is not moderated. --Raltseye (talk) 16:11, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

I don't believe we've removed any wikis for lack of activity before.
-Toa 95 (talk)
No, but it's not out of NIWA it's just this wiki that's gonna cut the cord and honestly I don't think it's gonna recover since it's been like this for a while now. Maybe we should give a deadline, eh? What do you think? --Raltseye (talk) 01:07, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
I don't know. It's not like we have a replacement.
-Toa 95 (talk)
No, but it's not like we explicitly need one either. If it's abandoned like this one seems to be to me, I think it's time we cut the strings to it as well. I my opinoin it looks bad to have links to a ghost site so to speak. We can always try to contact the admins of the site and if they don't reply, state that they have indeed abadoned the wiki or do not show any intrest in reviving it I think we should definitely cut the cord. --Raltseye (talk) 23:19, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
I'm just not sure about removing it. I suppose we can try to contact their staff and see what they would rather do with it.
-Toa 95 (talk)
That seems like a good idea before we do anything else, yes. --Raltseye (talk) 14:23, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
Well, I asked. Let's wait for their reply. Also, I checked, Yukii is the only moderately active admin on the site. So, when should the deadline be? --Raltseye (talk) 21:32, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
I guess a couple weeks or so?
-Toa 95 (talk)
I'll get back to you then when either they have answered or the deadline is due. --Raltseye (talk) 23:14, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Ping. Time's up. --Raltseye (talk) 13:04, 29 December 2017 (UTC)

A more efficient way to do it is removing the interwiki link prefix de: from the interwiki link table, that efficiently renders all the links already present on articles including the main page useless. If we had a bot we could have made it remove all the links too. --Raltseye (talk) 14:56, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

NIWA in other languages

I just added this Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance#In other languages. Could you make the boxes show the right colors? The Italian Super Mario Wiki and German Nintendo Wiki do not have logos so if you could make them not show up at all, that would be nice. --Raltseye (talk) 17:55, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello! Can I create an account? 13:05, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Mario Wiki

Since you seem more active here, I'll post here. We haven't seen you much on Mario Wiki, your last edit there was in March. I don't remember if I've seen you on the WhosOnline or not recently, and you're hardly on Discord, so just wondering how you're doing. Alex95 (talk) 17:32, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Oh, hey. I'm doing well, how about you?
-Toa 95 (talk)
Doing alright. Glad to see you're still around, as your Mario Wiki activity is being called into question. L151 said she tried to get a hold of you, but got no response. If you could check out the admin channel on Mario Wiki Discord and give an input, that would be good ^^ Alex95 (talk) 17:59, 11 December 2019 (UTC)
Ah, yeah, sorry, I've just been focusing on some other things, I suppose. I really need to get back into doing wiki stuff again.
-Toa 95 (talk)

EiC congrats

Congratulations on being elected the first Editor-in-Chief on NintendoWiki! --Viperision (talk) 20:57, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Graduates to you too! -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 09:01, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Viperision asked me for a name change here (but from another wiki), but I can't do it

According to User_talk:Torchickens#WiKirby_affiliation, Viperision wants to be called just Vipz. Can you do it on their behalf please? I think because you also have bureacrat rights you might be able to do this? On that note, can you also rename me to "Evie (Torchickens)" please? Thanks in advance. ^^ From Evie (Torchickens) ✿ 20:07, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, but for some reason I can't access the user rename page, so unless something is done about that I won't be able to help with this.
-Toa 95 (talk)

Hey Toa 95, I want to upload a new version of the File:None.png (I made a placeholder that says "No image available. Click here to upload!" so readers aren't confused with the blank space) but I'm getting an internal error [Ys-hozCLuZ28c436ujqR6wAAAAs] 2022-07-14 04:54:59: Fatal exception of type "MediaWiki\Revision\IncompleteRevisionException". Could you pass it down to the site maintainer? Also, yeah, it would still be great to get renamed. :P -Viperision (talk) 04:59, 14 July 2022 (UTC)


Hi Toa 95, what is your opinion on articles about third-party peripherals such as the Work Boy. Should they be allowed? Or maybe they could be detailed in a list? Also I noticed Power Glove was a red link so I created it, but I didn't realise Mattel/Pax were the manufacturers. Thanks in advance.
