Regarding your recent pages[edit]

Greetings. I first want to thank you for your contributions so far. I understand you've looked at the recent complaints in the referendum talk page and admitted to going a little overboard with the fluffy writing. Your articles were cute, but they do stretch the limits on professionalism. Here are some specific tips going forward:

  • Don't use first and second person pronouns in article text. Articles should always be written in third person.
  • Make sure to keep an in-universe style. (e.g. describe what Kirby is doing in stages rather than what the player should do)
  • Do not use referential humor, unless it regards a specific reference offered by the content itself.
  • Do not talk directly to characters or to the reader.
  • Don't use questions in main article text. Questions are tolerated in moderation in image captions only.
    • The same rules applies to exclamation marks.
  • Don't use emojis in text.

If you are unsure about the preferred writing style, have a look at some of the other stage synopses on the wiki. Most of them were written by me, and you can see my preferred style within. I will be codifying a lot of what I've said to you here in the new policy, so it should be clearer going forward. Cheers, --Fubaka (talk) 02:52, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

Incidentally, I've taken the liberty of adjusting the first page The Adventure Begins to place it within acceptable parameters. If I could get you to take a look at the changes and apply them to Up the Big 'Ol Tree as well, I would appreciate it. --Fubaka (talk) 03:12, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm on my way!SKC Sticker Kirby 3.pngSunmarshsignature.png (talk) 03:17, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
Good going. I've made just a few more minor adjustments to the text to bring it all the way in line. Again, I should thank you not only for doing those pages for me, but also prompting me to more clearly define the writing standards. This should keep everyone satisfied. --Fubaka (talk) 04:04, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
No worries! Coming from a wiki whose audience tends towards the younger side I can understand the desire for more mature editors... *sweatdrop* Thanks for keeping it kosher! Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 04:12, 21 September 2019 (UTC)


Regarding recent categories you created (Category:Magazines, Category:Magazine images, Category:Nintendo Power), since most of not many magazine images are from Nintendo Power, I think we could just have Category:Magazines contain all magazine images and articles. I feel like this is category cluttering. ⁠–⁠Wiz (talk · edits) 07:54, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

Hello, Vipz! I was just trying to replicate the categorization system already employed within Category:Literature, (see: Category:Manga & Category:Novels). If you feel that magazines are an exceptional case, however, feel free to go ahead and change it. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 14:37, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
I see, I've removed Category:Nintendo Power from files and left over Category:Magazine images, just so you know. ⁠–⁠Wiz (talk · edits) 17:31, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Sources for Rainbow Curse level select images[edit]

Greetings, Sunmarsh. I'm sending you this message to ask if you could provide specific sources for the level select screens that you uploaded regarding Kirby and the Rainbow Curse? I saw on your userpage that they came from Archiverse, but I wasn't able to quickly find any specific shots, so if you could come around and add those to the appropriate files, I'd appreciate it. --Samwell (talk) 21:23, 24 December 2021 (UTC)

I suppose I should also mention the three Game Over screenshots you uploaded as well. Those need sources, too. --Samwell (talk) 21:25, 24 December 2021 (UTC)
Hello Samwell, I found those images over two years ago; my web browser search history doesn't go back that far. I remember spending a very long time scrolling through the Archiverse to find them, so I don't imagine it would be easy to find the proper url for them. You might be able to do some sort of reverse image search, I'm not sure. Either way, I don't have the time to devote to such an endeavor. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 00:28, 26 December 2021 (UTC)
Edit: This is the page the images were found on: If you scroll long enough, you will eventually find them all. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 00:30, 26 December 2021 (UTC)
Alright. I'll have a look through this, then. --Samwell (talk) 00:43, 26 December 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I went and found the sources, so no worries. --Samwell (talk) 06:28, 26 December 2021 (UTC)
