"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)
