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

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 Zelda Wiki? :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 http://nintendowiki.sevengamer.de/wiki/$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?

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)

Inactivity

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)
