Image clearing Edit

Hi! I'm HiQu, an administrator from the Ratchet & Clank wiki. I've noticed that you're very good at removing edges from images. Well, the thing is that we would need a clean page of our previous featured articles so the edges of one image should be removed. So could you remove the edges of this image, please? Oh and it should be uploaded to a different image such as Qwark2.png or something because it is used in peoples user and talk pages.

Thanks! It's perfect. HiQu LogoSee my Userpage!--Talk to me! 16:10, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Countdown to Christmas Edit

You know those countdown things on some Gaming Wikis for the release of video games (I've seen it on SmashWiki and Metal Gear Wiki)? Well, I don't know how to make it at the top of a talk page. I want to know how to put it at the top of a talk page; not for me, for a friend on SmashWiki (let's call it my "early Christmas present"). Do you know how to do that without being on the Main Page Banner page? MarioGalaxyMerry Christmas from the Comet Observatory! 06:09, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh, and I want this text in it: Bulletin: OMIGAWD X-MAS WILL BE HERE IN December 25 2008 00:00:00 EDT (it's not my text; and the red time at the end is the date for the countdown, although I don't think it matters about the text color). MarioGalaxyMerry Christmas from the Comet Observatory! 06:10, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
It's MG. I can't log on right now (power went out before, so I had to wait a while). In fact, I have to get off my laptop right now. The timer won't work. I guess I'll work on it tomorrow, as a "late Christmas Gift" for a New Years' timer. BNK said that the countdown division of Wikia left. Sorry, got to go. Later, on, and Merry Christmas... 22:53, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Nothing. It just shows Java disabled or something when I preview it. MarioGalaxyMerry Christmas from the Comet Observatory! 00:20, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
I see where the timer should be, but I don't see the countdown. It shows the Javascript message (although longer). Maybe I should restart my laptop or something. When I saw it in the history of the Metal Gear main page banner, it should the countdown for MGS4 (although increasing in time, meaning how much time passed since it was released). MarioGalaxyDeath has a price. I've paid it... 00:57, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
Oh, never mind. I see it now. Just needed some time for my laptop to load it I guess. Thanks. Oh, and about my sig, I'll have to make a Wikia sub-page for it (the current sub-page for it is on SmashWiki). Just give me a sec... MarioGalaxyDeath has a price. I've paid it... 00:59, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
No need (or, I probably did refresh it). I see it now. Thanks! MarioGalaxyDeath has a price. I've paid it... 01:02, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Dang. Sky removed the coding because he said it's not used (except for BNK's talk page). Ah well. Thanks anyway. MarioGalaxyMay Guthix be with you... 22:10, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Embry Star Edit

Hey, I am brand new to wiki today, and if you replied to me I wouldn't even know how to reply. But there is an award in gears of war called the "Embry Star" and it is an award recieved by many of the gears. Just wondering if anyone would be interested in making a page for it. I would if I knew how I dont even know how to communicate around on this site


Embry star Edit

Thanks for the reply, and that page is tight. I just found this site, and I think its like the coolest thing ever And yeah im gonna learn the basics I got all sorts of things that can be added, like the hospital and what not

Main Page Rename Edit

Hi JoePlay. Just replying to your message on Grand Theft Wiki regarding the renaming of the main page. I have a number of issues with the way this was done.

Firstly, I really wish you would ask before making a significant change such as this. I understand you have reasons (ie SEO and consistency), and that you have been assigned this task; but this site belongs to its community, not Wikia. I really appreciate most of what Wikia does, but this is just rude.

Secondly, you gave the page the wrong name. The wiki is named "Grand Theft Wiki", and has been called that ever since it was created. Check the title, logo and content of the main page.

Thirdly, please do your research more carefully in future - the Staff page should give you a better idea of who is responsible for what. Edit count isn't the be-all-and-end-all, which I'm sure you appreciate.

Fourthly, please inform the entire community (through the Community Portal or the Talk page for the main page), not just a single staff member. Or even try the Staff Noticeboard.

Your job description as a Wikia Helper contains "aim to respect local wiki policies". Well we have had discussions in the past regarding the naming of the Main Page, and set policy on the matter. It was determined that Main Page was the most appropriate, since a page like "Talk: Grand Theft Wiki" would not be an accurate title for discussion regarding the main page. We also have a number of subpages, which I don't think you took into consideration.

I have reverted the move to allow for an internal discussion on the matter. I appreciate the effort, but please be more considerate in future. Gboyers talk 20:25, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

Thanks! I'll check with the other admin, but I wholeheartedly support your decision. I agree with you on the fact that it's just what we need to become more well known, and I'm sure the other admin will too. Thanks again! EmptyStar 21:54, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Gran Turismo Wiki: Two Things That Need to be Done Edit

Okay, GT Wiki needs two things:

1)Mass advertising

2)New spotlight logo

Can you do those things for me? Thanks! --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 05:01, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again! This is greatly appreciated. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 19:19, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Need adminship for two users on gearspedia Edit

Hey joe it's me Jack. I would like to request adminship for User:Sebastian32 and User:Randy Andy. 81 and I can't handle a wiki with 419 pages with two user with Sysops.--Jack Black 17:10, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Dofus Wiki main page Edit

Hi, by chance I notice your changes, for future reference can you please inform me next time, thanks. --Cizagna (Talk) 09:23, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Help Edit

Hiya, JoePlay! I'm BNK from Kirby Wiki, and I was wondering if you could tell me how I could demote the inactive administrators there. Can you help? If you can, could you demote the following users?

  • Dantman ‎(Bureaucrat, Sysop) (inactive for 4 months)
  • Katshuma ‎(Sysop) (inactive for 2 months)
  • KirbyFan ‎(Sysop) (inactive for 3 months)
  • ParaGoomba348 ‎(Sysop) (didn't even deserve adminship, inactive for 3 months)
  • Wiismartey ‎(Sysop) (inactive for well over a year)
  • YoshiFan ‎(Sysop) (inactive for well over a year)

The reason this comes up now is because some of the new users at Kirby Wiki request adminship without making any contributions or just making only a few. I want the users to take the wiki seriously, so if the new users see all the admins on the SysOp list, they'll think adminship is simply handed out. Also, Max2 (the founder) is inactive. He only logs in to whine about his ban at the Mario Wiki and promote his "friends" (our main problem; he's promoted users that barely made any contribs, but are his friends). He never responds to any help, nor does he do anything around the Wiki. Thank you in advance! Blue NinjakoopaTalk 20:37, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! Blue NinjakoopaTalk 22:54, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, nevermind this post. Didn't know how to find who was admin on the site. ;)

Best regards

I am VERY unhappy with your arbitrary changes to the witcher wiki Edit

It looks horrible and is very hard on the eyes. I'll thank to AT THE VERY LEAST alert me next to decide to do stuff like this without my knowledge or agreement Game widow 23:52, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Game Widow, sorry the change was rather quick, CDProjekt fought really hard and put alot of effort into having their creative team design a new them for the wiki. Community Manager Eriash has been in contact with Ausir, though I know it was a rather sudden change. The Developer was enthused about being able to give back to the community, and I assure you they were doing this as a means of involvement. With the release of White Wolf in the near future, they are looking to this community to host exclusive events and give back swag to the community. Again, sorry for the short notice. -- Doug@fandom (talk) 23:58, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Since BOTH Ausir and I are bureaucrats and it was in fact ME who alerted Ausir .. he was NOT aware as Eriash has used an unreliable method of contacting him, I find that a pretty lame explanation. Expecially since I an online ALL day every day.
This new layout is tearing my eyes out, so i will NOT be using (professionally?? produced -- i think NOT) this new skin Game widow 10:32, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Had this only affected the main page, i would not care at all. Game widow 10:43, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
