What do you mean? I don't upload images we already have and if I did please tell me. There is more than 200 articles copied from Wikipedia on gaming.wikia.com. We need another sysop there now! Slipknot Darkrai 15:39, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

What? You keep uploading the Krusha image we already have. Also you have uploaded images we already had many times, such as the DK KoS artwork. As for gaming wikia I'm not interested, I guess I will help occasionally with files. --Havoc'48 15:46, October 23, 2010 (UTC)
Oh OK sorry about that now I get you. :3 Slipknot Darkrai 15:49, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

Future Poll

Hey, I had an idea for the next candidate for the voting poll on the main page, how about the Tiki Tak Tribe? The options could be like "Too silly", "Yay no more crocodiles!" or "I still want my Kremlings!" -The Forgotten Beast TALK 16:03, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

The poll coding is at Template:Main Page-poll, so you can change it if you want to by yourself. Sounds like a good idea, though I would give more than three options. I'd give the current poll another week or so due to the low votes now. --Havoc'48 18:06, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

Featured Media

The video in featured media got deleted so do you mind if I replace it with the Rambi footage from DKCR? -The Forgotten Beast TALK 04:05, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Sure thing, I had forgotten to change that featured media in the first place... --Havoc'48 16:21, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Hey the Klomp article which I recently edited was plagiarized from MarioWiki. Can you do anything about it? Slipknot Darkrai 10:03, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oh my gosh!!!! I figured that Gamefreak75 has been PLAGERIZING from MarioWiki in the past. Other than that, can you solve those problems? Slipknot Darkrai 10:17, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

So has BNK. It's sort of old news. I have been re-writing articles from the bottom up recently to differ from MW, but unfortunately the bigger articles copied will take a while. I've made some progress. No point bugging Gamefreak now, unless he has the spare time to help re-write (which I doubt). --Havoc'48 16:21, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
To butt in, he won't. N00b attacks on Kirby Wiki.--MegaTron1XD:p 16:28, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Reason

Because it had an error. Slipknot Darkrai 20:35, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Um, what error? --Havoc'48 20:36, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
I thought it was fine before, but fixed. --Havoc'48 20:38, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

New Gameplay Trailer

New DKCR gameplay trailer -The Forgotten Beast TALK 22:56, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

YESH! Even more retro music confirmed! Also, one of those enemies reminds me of Expresso... also, those green frogs are like Gnawty. Thanks for the update. --Havoc'48 23:01, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
You mean the chicken on stilts? It looks nice but it and most of the other enemies don't look as threatening as the ones from the original DKC, but the frogs are cool and they do remind me of Gnawty, kind of like a Gnawty/Winky hybrid... on second thought I take that back, that sounds too disturbing... -_- -The Forgotten Beast TALK 23:24, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
They're not making a DKC4 here, keep in mind. The flaming levitating tikis things are cool though. I'll really miss Krash though... I see your point. They're aiming for the feel, not the actual thing, which might ultimately kill the game, but, we'll have to wait and see. --Havoc'48 23:37, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Gallery

If you were going to ask me why I am adding Sprites to the gallery it is because there is Zinger sprites in the gallery of Zinger. Thanks Slipknot Darkrai 10:32, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Um, sure but please accredit MarioWiki in your file summaries. Also please keep SOME images in the article content. Stop removing them. --Havoc'48 19:08, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

I did that in Funky Kong article because it looked silly adding another = and I thought it would mess up the article. Also how do I accredit MarioWiki in my file summaries? Slipknot Darkrai 20:29, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

It's not "silly", it's called organizing headers. Also, when you upload your files straight from MW, use the file summary box (you know, the large box you seem to never touch when uploading a file?). Speaking of files stop uploading twenty duplicate files we already have. --Havoc'48 20:32, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
I'll be sure to check sir. Slipknot Darkrai 20:34, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Hi

Sorry I was pretty much trying to get the badge. However can you tell me any pages that can be added to categories? BillboyX 21:03, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry. I went a little overboard.I'll make a mental note no more donkey kong games in characters.BillboyX 21:56, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

Admin?

Hey HR48, it's The Forgotten Beast, I was wondering if I could have administrative rights here as well if that's okay. Also the Starfy wiki will also be joining NIWA soon, so wish us luck! -The Forgotten Beast 11:10, 30 October 2010 (EDT)

Got ya. You have your admin and b'crat powers returned (and you're contribs are carried over here too). It's good to see multiple wikis secede and teach Wikia a lesson! Good luck with Starfy. Also, speaking of NIWA, are we the new wiki joining on Nov 5? Like, see the bottom left? --HavocReaper'48 14:39, 30 October 2010 (EDT)
Thanks HR48! I can't wait to see this wiki on NIWA central! I also started looking for some new hosts to move my other wikis too, probably Shoutwiki, I wonder how Wikia likes that!! HA! >;) -The Forgotten Beast 15:00, 30 October 2010 (EDT)
No Havoc, we're set for the twelfth. Omega TyrantTyranitarMS.png 22:03, 30 October 2010 (EDT)

Countdown Template

I was thinking that maybe we should have a countdown template like the ones on Bulbapedia and Wikirby for the release of DKCR, what do you think? -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 15:31, 6 November 2010 (EDT)

Sounds good but, we need to update the wiki javascript for it to work. Do you know how countdown templates work? --HavocReaper'48 22:46, 6 November 2010 (EDT)
Sadly no, but I was thinking of maybe asking one of the staff members at one of the NIWA affiliated sites (maybe WiKirby), I'm sure they'll lend us a hand if we explain the situation, I mean DK Wiki is going to be part of NIWA soon so I'm sure they won't mind, and it's not the first time I've asked for help on template related matters, of course whatever you pick is fine with me. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 01:59, 7 November 2010 (EDT)
Forgotten Beast, have you asked one of the staff members at one of the NIWA affiliated sites about the Countdown Template? -- Carulosu 21:56, 12 November 2010 (EST)
Not yet, why do you ask? -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 21:58, 12 November 2010 (EST)
Because DKCR will be released soon. -- Carulosu 23:35, 12 November 2010 (EST)


I copied them because that was the real DK Wiki and the original and YOU are helping a copied wiki. I mean what is the point? Are you going to just go ahead and help a copyrighted wiki? That is just wrong. Seriously dude I mean this IS the fake one. Explain to me why you are going on this wiki instead of this one? Slipknot Darkrai 16:20, 7 November 2010 (EST)

If anyone ever has questions, don't hesitate to ask me on WiKirby, NIWA, or my talk page here, I enabled my account to email me. Anyway, This needs to be installed It's a pretty simple install, nothing needs to be downloaded, I just copied the visible code to a new file in the extensions directory and added that bit to the local settings.Axiomist 23:01, 12 November 2010 (EST)

Re: TONS of DKCR stuff!!

By the Kong gods! Its like the garden of eden!! -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 21:09, 12 November 2010 (EST)

I still miss Funky and Dixie though... T_T -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 22:13, 12 November 2010 (EST)

Template:MarioWiki

I quickly made a template for things taken off of Super Mario Wiki in my sandbox. Should we use it? Manga Maniac 04:17, 13 November 2010 (EST)

I approve it. -- Carulosu 08:23, 13 November 2010 (EST)
Me too. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 08:52, 13 November 2010 (EST)
I changed the background border from SaddleBrown to Red in order to a) differentiate it more from {{stub}} b) make it look more serious. Manga Maniac 11:13, 13 November 2010 (EST)

I just transferred the template to the Template:MarioWiki with some tweaks, and I approve, but one major issue: what about articles in the progress of being re-written? Like the Diddy Kong article? (DKC-DKL3 is re-written). I mean, editors would not know that the area had already be re-written and try to do it again. --HavocReaper'48 11:19, 13 November 2010 (EST)

Maybe a template for "This page is undergoing major edits. Please do not edit it." Its a bit more general and can be used in any cases where a page is being rewritten for any reason or for less serious edits but would still be disastrous if edit conflicted. And of course, after rewriting the article, you should remove the tag. Manga Maniac 12:28, 13 November 2010 (EST)
Basically a derivative from the MW template? I would encourage editors to help though... maybe "The below section(s) of this article are in need of rewrite" or something? --HavocReaper'48 12:48, 13 November 2010 (EST)
I could also use a {{#if:}} thing on {{MarioWiki}} to put a message "This is being rewritten. Do not edit." if you want to keep it on the same template. Manga Maniac 14:44, 13 November 2010 (EST)
Here is a demonstration of how it looks like with |rewritten=yes on it (or anything other than yes, I ain't brilliant at this coding lark):
{{MarioWiki}}
Without it:
{{MarioWiki}}
- Manga Maniac 14:49, 13 November 2010 (EST)
I guess that can work. I would add "Until further notice" at the end of "Do not edit this page". --HavocReaper'48 15:39, 13 November 2010 (EST)
I changed the templates again so that when |rewritten=yes is added to the template, the bit saying "You can help DK Wiki by rewriting it." is gone. Seems to work okay. Manga Maniac 15:52, 13 November 2010 (EST)
I removed the templates, for the sake of uncategorising this user talk page. Manga Maniac 18:20, 18 November 2010 (EST)

Yah

About my block for Slipknot, the month was an accident and a major one at that. Though I'll attempt to be slower on block length and less harsh, I do wonder if you will promote another user soon. I myself would like to avoid acting so fast and if another user did it previously, I can more easily avoid such an event.--MegaTron1XD:p 18:15, 15 November 2010 (EST)

Noted, but, still, Darkrai is pretty much in denial right now, I doubt he's gonna change. As for the next promotion, I know who you're referring to, but still he has to RFA. You could go suggest he does so if you want. --HavocReaper'48 19:41, 15 November 2010 (EST)

DKCR obtained!

HR48, I've finally obtained DKCR and will begin playing it momentarily. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 10:52, 21 November 2010 (EST)

Tell me everything! I unfortunately probably won't be getting it until Christmas... sorry. I'll try to use YouTube and other resources to help with DKCR stuff in the meantime (heck, I already did final boss article with just the YouTube video). --HavocReaper'48 11:19, 21 November 2010 (EST)
So far I'm in Beach 2-4 canon cluster but puzzle pieces are hard to come by, luckily I have Squawks to help me find them so I should have the gallery unlocked later tonight. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 13:17, 21 November 2010 (EST)

Have you obtained any images from your youtube searches so I can begin making enemy articles?-The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 21:25, 21 November 2010 (EST)

I do not have individual artwork unfortunately, the best I'm capable of getting is screenshots. I have heard somewhere collecting puzzle pieces unlocks viewable artwork in-game? Anyway, start making enemy articles, and please be descriptive so I can find the proper images of the enemies... I'm not going to be too good at this. I'll be sure to update DKCE in the meantime while you start articles. --HavocReaper'48 21:32, 21 November 2010 (EST)
I've only unlocked Awk, Rawk, Frogoon and Mugly's artwork, puzzle pieces are hard to come by... -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 21:35, 21 November 2010 (EST)
Ah. I heard the game was pretty difficult. The best I can hope for is to wait until more people start getting games, unlocking galleries and photos so I can upload them here. DKCE has been updated so all of the red link enemies are open. But let me guess - Awk is the vulture seen here? I know a fair amount of info to make an article about it. --HavocReaper'48 21:49, 21 November 2010 (EST)
That's actually a Rawk, the red one, Awks are the blue weaker ones, the only difference is that Rawks show visible anger and they will try to ram you if they see you. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 22:23, 21 November 2010 (EST)

I'm almost done with Forest and I found all the puzzle pieces in Jungle and Beach so I should have more info obtained soon. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 18:23, 23 November 2010 (EST)

Nice. Tell me about the extras that come from puzzle pieces? --HavocReaper'48 18:25, 23 November 2010 (EST)
The puzzle pieces unlock the image gallery and after defeating the bosses they help unlock the diorama gallery. I've only unlocked 5 of the 8 categories in the image gallery which consist of: Critters, Tiki, Boss, Worlds and Kong.-The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 18:31, 23 November 2010 (EST)
Right. I don't want to distract you from getting progress, so, get as much done as you can... man I wanna play it! I'll keep searching for DKCR stuff online. --HavocReaper'48 19:07, 23 November 2010 (EST)
"Critters", huh? Heh. Is the artwork all hand-drawn or with 3-D models? --HavocReaper'48 18:52, 23 November 2010 (EST)
Hand-drawn so far. On a side note I just defeated Mangoruby and I am now in the Cliff. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 18:53, 23 November 2010 (EST)

I just found out that if you leave DK alone long enough he starts playing with a DS! LOL! Should this be mentioned on the DKCR trivia? -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 19:24, 23 November 2010 (EST)

Of course! What about Diddy? --HavocReaper'48 19:27, 23 November 2010 (EST)
Diddy excitedly watches DK play the DS, and if you leave Cranky alone he falls asleep... not very interesting actually... -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 19:30, 23 November 2010 (EST)

Ok

Yoshi 19:29, 22 November 2010 (EST) read the Stu article

No. That is not good enough. Unless you try harder, don't make articles.--MegaTron1XD:p 19:45, 22 November 2010 (EST)

Bonus Beta Artwork Unlocked!

I finally defeated Tiki Tong and I'm on my way to the Golden Temple, but before that, I unlocked the Bonus Gallery by defeating Tiki Tong which features oodles of artwork of stuff that was going to be in the game, such as that the Scurvy Crew weren't originally going to be the bosses of the Beach instead it was going to a giant eel with a bandage on its face that was wrapped around a lighthouse (it doesn't have a name as its description only says Eel Fight), there was also going to be a level or level scenery called Beach Bridge which overlooked the sea and some ships, Rambi was going to look far more realistic and it appears that he was going to have a small bird perched on his head, another removed level known as Amber Tracks was a minecart level apparently situated in the Volcano or the Cliff, also a Forest level called Treetop Village was going to appear and it would've been more reminiscent of the past treetop levels, a removed level called Dusky Cliffs was going to be part of the Cliff area and it resembles Crumble Canyon somewhat except it takes place at night, another level called Old School was going to be a Factory level and it took place outside and it was made out of red pipes, Gameboys, NES controllers and Game & Watch handhelds, The Volcano was going to have a large banana boss called Angry Banana that glowed red and spit fireballs. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 19:34, 25 November 2010 (EST)

That's a great find and congrats on beating the game, man! I would love to see all of that for myself. I copied the info you posted into the DKCR article. Can you upload this more detailed Rambi? That's so ironic seeing as we had a poll debating Rambi's new artwork at the time on the main page! --HavocReaper'48 20:08, 25 November 2010 (EST)
Thanks! I'll try and see what I can do about Rambi. On a personal note: I would've preferred that awesome eel over pirate crabs... -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 20:11, 25 November 2010 (EST)
Tell Retro that. --HavocReaper'48 20:20, 25 November 2010 (EST)

I made this animated gif of how Tikis are made.-The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 23:52, 25 November 2010 (EST) TikiCreation.gif

That explains a lot. Wow. DK's bananas sure have some supernatural powers. They give wooden bodies life. --HavocReaper'48 23:54, 25 November 2010 (EST)
Yeah apparently, they were making an entire army of those things in the Factory which is why they took all the bananas on the island. I assume they were planning world conquest. Colonel Pluck is also the one in charge of mashing the banana pudding into them. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 23:56, 25 November 2010 (EST)
That's probably the most depth a DK game has ever had in plot :P . Heh. Is that info on the DKCR article? --HavocReaper'48 00:00, 26 November 2010 (EST)

Wikia thing response

I am afraid that, for some reason, my computer does not understand the irc address. On the AC Wiki, you can join the forms and PM me. That would probably be the easiest. I really need to look into that irc issue... -SA

Tried using Firefox? Also, sign with four ~'s at the end of comments. --HavocReaper'48 00:19, 26 November 2010 (EST)
Sorry, I was not registered here at the time. I have FireFox on my new laptop, but it is broken. I do not think I have enough memory left on the one I am on now to download it. One sec, I will try my moms. SuperAlpaca 12:38, 26 November 2010 (EST)

Reply

I wrote that myself on the other wiki yesterday and the day before. I realized afterwords that the NIWA site was where we are supposed to go now so I came here. I figured it wasn't plagiarizing if I wrote that myself completely. Although I'm not sure how I'll prove I wrote it... please trust me. And if you don't, than I guess I'll have to prove myself with other helpful edits and show that I am a good editor and member. But seriously, I wrote that article on the other site, but had the name of "The Great Deku Tree" --Cranky Kong 17:08, 8 December 2010 (EST)

Just noticing your recent edit to Jungle, you seem like the guy. I would recommend registering the username "The Great Teku Tree" on here too so no one tries to impersonate you. Also, was that just you on IRC? --Covah 17:27, 8 December 2010 (EST)
Okay, thank you so much man :D. Yes that was me on IRC, I wanted to see if it worked. I'd get on again, but I have to go until later --Cranky Kong 17:43, 8 December 2010 (EST)

Christmas for DK wiki

Hey HR48, I was discussing with the others on the irc about making the wiki more festive for the holidays so I was assigned into making a festive background, here it is and please tell me what you think. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 21:53, 9 December 2010 (EST)

ChristmasDKWiki.jpg
Looks good, but, where are we gonna put that? Like, the sitenotice? Also, Carul uploaded a pic of Diddy/Dixie/Kiddy with a Christmas tree & presents, should that be taken into consideration too? --Covah 21:57, 9 December 2010 (EST)
I was actually hoping to use it as the Wiki's Monobook background and we could feature Carul's image in the Featured Media on the Main Page if he wants to that is. -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 21:59, 9 December 2010 (EST)
I guess that could work as the featured media, but I think changing the background is a bit much. Quite fitting, though, for the F.M. Also, just noticing the lack of a countdown template on the Main Page makes the right side seem smaller and uneven. --Covah 22:02, 9 December 2010 (EST)
Can we at least try it out and see how it looks? -The Forgotten Beast BANANA SLAMMA!!! 22:04, 9 December 2010 (EST)
