"Game Apperances" or "Game apperances"[edit]

Hi Samwell, while I was editing some character pages, I noticed this inconsistency. Which one should we use? Same for "Physical (A/a)ppearance. Superbound (talk) 13:20, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello. Generally speaking, you should only capitalize the first letter for section titles. Same rules apply as for regular sentences. As such, use "Game appearances". --Samwell (talk) 13:25, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Alright, thanks a lot! Superbound (talk) 13:26, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

Several questions[edit]

Hi, I would like to ask you a few questions (I actually have more, but I'll ask them latter):

  1. I saw that there's special licensing for Dedede Directory posts ( {{artwork|Dedede Directory}} if I'm not mistaken). As I'm currently working on a draft, can Channel PPP posts get it to?
  2. If subject the article is talking about has a different name in diffrent languages (Staff-Stick, Kirby Star Allies-Kirby Star Arise) should the names become redirect? Or are there some rules of language redirects?
  3. Why most of the notice templates are yellow?
  4. On Template:FA/doc I saw that President Haltmann is going to appear on August 23 instead of King Dedede. Did I miss some changes in queue system?

That's all for now. Superbound (talk) 18:16, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Greetings. Let me answer your questions as succinctly as I can:
  1. Technically speaking, the Dedede Directory posts do not have their own special copyright template, as their button adds the Artwork template, and is just here as a special mention. We could do the same thing for Channel PPP posts, but I would ask YFJ about that, since he looked over that particular reform.
  2. Generally speaking, we do not use different language redirects on WiKirby. Special exceptions are made only when the different-language name is commonly used in the English fanbase.
  3. Just a traditional carry-over from the old days of the site. That, and the yellow stands out.
  4. I was not under the impression that King Dedede was meant to come next. I assumed I could place any featured article up next in the queue. If this is not true, please show me where the extended queue is.
Let me know if you have any follow-up questions. --Samwell (talk) 18:24, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  1. Ok
  2. Ok
  3. Ok (I mainly asked this question because I'm more used to color variety for templates on Super Mario Wiki and SmashWiki)
  4. Queue is decided by order of featurement, but you can ask YFJ for more details. While no official list exists, I track it on my userpage.

Files sourcing[edit]

Hi, can you tell me the sources of following files?:

(I plan on adding {{aboutfile}} on more images, so I will probably ask these kind of question in future too) Superbound (talk) 12:35, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

For a lot of those older screenshots, I went around and collected them from various YouTube longplays, and I would be hard-pressed to remember which specific videos I used. Instead of focusing on finding the sources, I would try to get them replaced with cleaner versions instead. --Samwell (talk) 12:37, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand. Superbound (talk) 12:48, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Happy Birthday, Samwell![edit]


Superbound (talk) 09:01, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, m80. I was actually trying to remember if we had this image on the site or not. :P --Samwell (talk) 14:07, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

Regarding Samus[edit]

Hello Samwell, if you haven't seen my edit summary, the reason I added Samus link was that other characters (specifically Donbe & Hikari and Chao), which had similar role in Kirby's Dream Land 3 already have pages. Unless you think that these pages are also not notable, I see no reason not to keep that link. Superbound (talk) 09:37, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

To me, it's more a matter of whether or not the subject matter is the domain of a more suitable wiki in NIWA. Donbe & Hikari and Chao don't really have much of a place on other NIWA wikis (aside from perhaps N Wiki but I'm pretty sure they are not there). For that reason, it makes more sense to me to link to MetroidWiki's article on Samus than to try and make one ourselves. --Samwell (talk) 15:37, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
That said, I should also preface that there are still some lingering traditions from the older days of the wiki that muddy things a little. For instance, we have a fair amount of content that specifically pertains to the Super Smash Bros. games, mainly since back when WiKirby was founded, there was a much stronger correlation between the Smash games and the Kirby games than there is today. There were also a few half-hearted attempts to make pages for Mario, Luigi, and others that I deleted due to them being extremely short stubs. I suppose ultimately the point I want to get across is this. We are primarily a Kirby wiki, but if you really want to make a page about another series character or subject that has some distant connection, through a cameo or other relation, then you should put in the effort to make the article and make it worth reading before you start adding links to it here. Also, be sure to have a look at this policy page for details on how to cover it. --Samwell (talk) 15:45, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
I see, I get your point here. To make sure that I understanded you correctly - is it okay if I start a draft for these characters pages in my sandbox? And for now, would it be also okay if I create (temporary) redirects to Cameo characters#Kirby's Dream Land 3? Superbound (talk) 12:56, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
In the specific case of Samus, I'm not sure it would make tons of sense to redirect users to the cameo list for Kirby's Dream Land 3 in the context that part of the article was using. However, feel free to start drafting articles in your sandbox. --Samwell (talk) 13:10, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
Oki, I'm going to start it soon enough. Superbound (talk) 13:15, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
