Unused image help

Hi Fubaka. I am asking you this because on recent changes you are pretty much the only even semi-active user. Is there any variant of the delete tag to show that a discussion isn't necessary. Similar to a speedy delete tag on SmashWiki. Thanks. DekZek (talk) 04:24, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

I came here when the site was basically dead, so I do not know what the official policy is. I suspect you will want to contact an administrator if you want the images deleted. Fubaka (talk) 05:43, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I just checked, and the admins get emails when you edit their talk pages. I will contact them when I can't do anything else until they do their part. FYI, you can indent conversations with a colon :. This wiki, as far as I am aware, has always been dead. If you want a wiki after you finish this task, feel free to go to my main wiki, SmashWiki. I use the same username there if you need to contact me. DekZek (talk) 14:52, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Actually, I already have an account at SmashWiki, under the same username. I'd jumped from there to here when I realized how unfinished this wiki was. As such, it has been my continuing task to fill out these pages. You may have noticed already, but there is still a lot of work to do. Fubaka (talk) 17:45, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Okay. On a semi-related note, can you create a user subpage for all of the images you are going to use, so that they don't appear in unused images? I can't really distinguish them from other images easily, so this would help a lot with my efforts. Thanks. DekZek (talk) 22:04, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do. Fubaka (talk) 00:06, 2 November 2015 (UTC)


Hello, This is T.c.w7468, a patroller for this wiki. You may not recognise me because I have regretfully been massively inactive for the last few years due to life changes, and I was just checking back on the wiki today. I have noticed your concern about Zombienom's edits, and appreciate you trying to let us know about it. I do not have page removal powers (I am only of patroller rank), but I will fix what damage I can and let Vellidragon know through other means about this situation, and have given Zombienom a remider of the quality guidelines of this wiki.

Thank you for keeping this wiki alive, and cheers T.c.w7468 02:12, 17 January 2016 (UTC) *edited 02:27, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

No problem. I've seen fit to make quite a few editions to this wiki myself during my time here. Most of the Triple Deluxe content was added by me, and I am still in the process of filling it in. I am also currently trying to make a full level synopsis of Amazing Mirror. If you have time, I'd appreciate some help on that. -Fubaka (talk) 03:27, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
I've noticed! You seem to have added a lot to this wiki, in particular I've noticed that you have finished what I started four years ago on information from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. I would like to help you in my free time, but I don't actually have Triple Deluxe or Amazing Mirror, and I am currently in a foreign country as an exchange student so I don't have access to the Kirby games I do have atm, so I can't offer as much in terms of content. However, I am willing to help in other ways, and again thanks for your passion and great contributions!T.c.w7468 04:33, 17 January 2016 (UTC)



Given your history of good contributions and dedication (which Tacopill has also pointed out to me) and in light of the wiki's relative shortage of active staff to monitor site activity, I'm asking if you would like to be promoted to Patroller on the wiki.

Patrollers are able to mark edits as "patrolled" (patrolled edits can be filtered out in the recent changes view) and quickly rollback changes to revert malicious activity. As Patroller, you would be part of the wiki staff and be better able to help moderate/review what's going on around the site.

Please let me know what you think!--Vellidragon (talk) 19:53, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

It would be an honor. I intend to continue contributing wherever I can. My sights are currently set on any new info regarding Blowout Blast. :) --Fubaka (talk) 20:14, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
Awesome! :) Welcome aboard! --Vellidragon (talk) 03:25, 14 June 2017 (UTC)


Hi, I uploaded an image and it looks terrible can you revert it back?

HHegg (talk) 19:27, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Done. --Fubaka (talk) 0:39, 14 September 2017 (UTC)


Guess I got the Kirby games mixed up with the images. Would you mind terribly if the images were renamed from "Star Allies" to "Battle Royale" in the titles, and the image redirects deleted? Alex95 (talk) 17:53, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Do what you need to to save the realm fix the images. --Fubaka (talk) 17:57, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Okay, I fixed what I could. My intention was to have an admin move the pages without leaving a redirect behind, but I marked the redirects for deletion anyway. Sorry for the extra work :P Alex95 (talk) 18:42, 14 September 2017 (UTC)


Alright, let's do this publicly then. :P You've been recommended for admin by User:Tacopill and it seems you've been super active and keeping an eye out for things needing admin intervention, so I'll be giving you admin rights.

Since WiKirby has generally been very light on staff (and not all that active), there aren't many formalities or long-term obligations that come with it, you'll just be able to take care of spam accounts and the like by yourself. For larger decisions or if you're not sure about something, I'd say contact me and we'll work it out together. You can also ask Taco to pass things on to me, and Moydow can probably help as well.

Oh yeah, you should also be able to edit protected things on the main page and whatnot, so if something comes up that needs an edit there, you'll be able to do it.

Thanks for your help! :) Here's a super helpful link list, by the way, if you weren't aware of it yet. It really helped me when I was more active doing things here. Oh, and if you don't want to do this anymore, let me know at any time and I can revert your rights or whatever you'd like me to do. It's all voluntary here. :) --Vellidragon (talk) 03:50, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks a bunch! I promise not to send the wiki down in flames. :P --Fubaka (talk) 04:36, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

about kirby & the amazing mirror

Looks like the game my brother gave to me was a us english version 1 before nintendo changed how kirby's slide attack works on large enemies. presumbly a bug?

If that's so, I'd like if you could get some video demonstrating what you said. If you can't get it yourself, try seeking out another source. Otherwise, it might just be best to move on. --Fubaka (talk) 02:10, 19 March 2018 (UTC)


Hey, just to let you know that the "T.c.w7468" that has just showed up on the Discord channel is in fact me (proof of identity). T.c.w7468 03:08, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Aye, thanks for letting me know. It's good to have another admin on board. Let me know if you have any questions about Discord-related things. --Fubaka (talk) 08:17, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Main page italics error

Can you fix the italics error in the “Editor's Picks” section of the main page? I can’t edit it because it is protected. Thanks in advance! -YoshiFlutterJump (talk) 00:49, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

All done. By the way, feel free to nominate another article that you would like featured. Kirby's Dream Land 2 has been it for so long mainly because nobody else has stepped up to approve a new page yet. --Fubaka (talk) 03:35, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

How do I put pictures in articles?

I do not know if the image size needs to be square to be able to put in an article, is it necessary to be .jpg or .png? Sorry if I'm bothering you. Kirby Master (talk) 14:44, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Looks like you figured it out. Yeah, most picture formats are accepted, but we usually do jpgs and pngs. The picture also does not need to be square. Let me know if you have any other questions. --Fubaka (talk) 16:39, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

City Trial feature nomination

Hey, just wanted to let you know that it seems your FA nomination for City Trial passed a couple weeks ago. I think the current FA on the main page can be changed now. -YFJ (talk · edits) 05:10, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Aye, thanks for reminding me. Will do that. Feel free to pick the next nomination if you'd like. --Fubaka (talk) 05:14, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Also, while I'm here, I thought I might as well mention that in the "did you know" section of the main page, it mentions the Guest Star Kirby glitch in Star Allies. However, this glitch cannot be used in the latest version of the game (3.0.0). Maybe it could mention that it only works in earlier versions of the game? Or should it be removed entirely? -YFJ (talk · edits) 20:18, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Well it is still technically accurate, even if you need to use an older version of the game to do it. I think it's fine as is. --Fubaka (talk) 23:18, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! -YFJ (talk · edits) 03:54, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Interwiki links

Hello Fubaka, I noticed the starfywiki interwiki links are broken. They currently link to In the past this worked but in order for them to work they must now be structured (unlike various instances which do not use /wiki/, namely Icaruspedia, Super Mario Wiki, Pikipedia, Pikmin Fanon Wiki, Smash Wiki) I took a look at the other NIWA interwiki links and there seem to be a few more problematic cases, namely:

There are a few other cases which work fine, but may still want changing:

  • It looks like Fire Emblem interwiki link is currently structured the same (no /wiki/). Unlike the Starfy Wiki example Fire Emblem wiki pages seem to work fine without /wiki/, but I feel it might be something to update for consistency.
  • Lylatwiki is another case of this. The link is currently$1 but most places on the site use /wiki/
  • Nwiki uses$1 but may not need the /index.php/
  • Zeldawiki uses$1 but after the move to Gamepedia, you may want to change it to$1 to avoid the redirect, and in case it eventually stops working.

Wondering if you could look into fixing these please? Many thanks :) --Chickasaurus (talk) 19:43, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Aye, I will fix this later when I have time to (which will likely be tomorrow). --Fubaka (talk) 23:24, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! --Chickasaurus (talk) 03:55, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
I have adjusted the interwiki links. Let me know if there are any additional problems. --Fubaka (talk) 21:36, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
It seems like all the pages that contained those need to be "refreshed" in order for the Interwiki-prefix(es) change the URLs according to the new settings. Mr. Star's one, for example, just were linking to the same URL as before (according to the old settings), until I saved the article without doing any edit. --Viperision (talk) 23:28, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Clearing cache or making a blank, or previewing a revision should do the trick otherwise too. --Raltseye prata med mej 01:21, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Parallel Bosses

So I see some parallel bosses articles (e.g. Parallel Meta Knight, Parallel Twin Kracko) are now merged into their normal counterparts. I don't see the reason considering they are separate beings.--FalcoLau (talk) 19:21, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Merge them if you like. I just figured it would be a decent idea to have separate pages for entities that are not the same character as the original. --Fubaka (talk) 01:01, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

will i?

will i make more sentences for my editsKing funky shadoodle (talk) 16:40, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Your edits don't have to be large in scope, simple things like fixing typos or adding trivia are fine. Just make sure what you write hasn't already been mentioned on the page. --Fubaka (talk) 16:43, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

it won't let me

when i try to edit my profile it said you are not aloud to ebit your profile for the folling reasons:you are not aloud to edit your profile King funky shadoodle (talk) 16:53, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

You will need to make a few more edits to be autoconfirmed by the website. We require at least five edits and a day after making your account to wait in order to prevent spam. --Fubaka (talk) 16:58, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

thanks allot your great! :) King funky shadoodle (talk) 18:30, 12 February 2019 (UTC)!

how do you get an image?

i think im asking to much sorry but how do you get an imageKing funky shadoodle (talk) 08:22, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

On the left, under Toolbox, you will find a link called 'Upload a file'. You can upload an image up to 5 MB to the site. If this is for your userpage, keep in mind that you are only allowed three personal images. --Fubaka (talk) 08:29, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Fixing links

Hi, would you mind using Special:ReplaceText to fix any transclusions of Template:KSwitch to Template:KirbySA? Thanks! Toadette the Achiever (talk) 14:03, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Alright, the command has been sent. It will be a little while before it actually takes effect. --Fubaka (talk) 18:12, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Heroes in Another Dimension

Hi Fubaka, I'm kind of new to this whole wiki thing, and you seem like you do this pretty frequently, so I may be coming to you with a lot of questions. (By the way, thanks for the explanation on seeing my user name in an article.) I noticed that you had deleted my note about the Kirby's Dream Land palette swap Easter egg upon getting all 120 hearts in Heroes in Another Dimension. Was it moved somewhere else or did I mess up the unlock criteria? Uncle Steve (talk) 20:11, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

Indeed. You don't get that palette swap for completing Heroes in Another Dimension. You get it for beating The Ultimate Choice on Soul Melter EX. --Fubaka (talk) 21:02, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

I Love You, Fubaka!

I just really love you! Can we be friends together? AwsomeKirbyStarAllies (talk) 19:08, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Maybe, though you are not the first person on this wiki to be aiming for my affection. Do you have Discord? If so, you should consider joining us on the WiKirby Discord server. You can chat with us in real time there, and meet the whole gang. --Fubaka (talk) 19:43, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Temporarily Blocked

Hello, earlier I was attempting to edit the Black Mirror page and it said that I was blocked due to having the same IP address as AwesomeKirbyStatAllies (which doesn't make sense because I was using mobile data), and I checked the block list and it said I wasn't blocked but I am still unable to edit any pages. -JRJ007 13:36, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

I have now been unblocked, so never mind. JRJ007 15:17, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Kirby Super Star Ultra

Hey, just wanted to let you know that your feature nomination for Kirby Super Star Ultra passed a couple weeks ago, so I believe it's time to update the featured article on the main page. Thanks! -YFJ (talk · edits) 19:48, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Aye. Thanks for reminding me. I will adjust things shortly. --Fubaka (talk) 19:07, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
