Hi there![edit]


Welcome to our wiki, and thank you for your contributions! There's a lot to do around here, so I hope you'll stay with us and make many more improvements.

Read this first as it provides many great resources designed to help users get oriented with the wiki and become part of the community.
Visit the recent changes to see what other people are editing right this minute, and where you can help.
Questions? You can ask at the help desk or on the "discussion" page associated with each article, or post a message on my talk page!
Need help? The community portal has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit.

I'm really happy to have you here, and look forward to working with you!

Little pro-tip: for unnecessary things like file redirects, you can use Template:D instead of Template:Delete and it'll be deleted by an admin ASAP. The deletion template is for pages that require a discussion about whether or not they should be deleted. TheNuttyOne 22:22, 31 July 2018 (EDT)

Ok i got it, thank you. Conker the Squirrel (talk) 22:22, 31 July 2018 (EDT)

Responding to this[edit]

Because you tried to replace an infobox image with a high-res one. This is a meaningless pursuit because the image will never be displayed at the higher res and will only serve to take up space. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 10:45, 5 August 2018 (EDT)

Why do you keep replacing images?[edit]

There seems to be little point of it. You're just making the admin team do more legwork in deleting the old ones. Serpent SKSig.png King 17:29, 5 August 2018 (EDT)

Because that's what they do on most wikis, like Zelda Wiki or Mario Wiki? Conker the Squirrel (talk) 17:30, 5 August 2018 (EDT)
But you're not giving any reason for replacing them. IF it's just because you've got a higher quality, we don't really care about that unless the quality of the original is unacceptable. Serpent SKSig.png King 18:47, 5 August 2018 (EDT)

Hey, please don't upload images that are smaller/lower-quality just so they match native resolution for the NES or SNES or whatever. For example, this one. If you want to upload cleaner/pixel-perfect images with the correct aspect ratio and such, I'm all for that. But uploading a small image just to match native res will result in it getting messily upscaled for display on most article pages. The best way to handle this is to do a simple 2x or 3x upscale from native res yourself and upload that. That way, the full-size image is pixel-perfect, and it will get downscaled for display in articles which looks much better. Here's an example. SuperFalconBros (talk) 17:14, 30 September 2018 (EDT)

I mean, i thought you could fix the upscaling for the article--when i upload the pixel perfect variant, it reduces article load time (which the wiki focuses on). But yeah, you have a good point. Conker the Squirrel (talk) 20:53, 30 September 2018 (EDT)

I was wondering why you're converting the image file type on numerous images? Does it really matter what file type the image is? (I personally cannot see any differences between the images of the png and jpg files) (If its because other Wikis do it, the SmashWiki has its own rules) Wolff (talk) 17:19, April 28, 2019 (EDT)

Because PNG only inflates the file size--there's no quality difference aside from inflated file size. Why do people have to have a go at me over images so much? C'mon now... Conker the Squirrel (talk) 20:42, April 28, 2019 (EDT)
Probably because it is not seen as a necessity or concern that this Wiki has. None of the rules specify a required file type, and as SerpentKing had mentioned, a lot of work the admins have to do to delete the files that have been replaced. About a week ago, there were only about 7 images/pages that were of Speedy Deletion, now there is almost 200. That is about 200 items that the admins have to delete, manually. If you are admin about replacing the png files into jpg files, I'd suggest asking on SerpentKing's talk page as SerpentKing was the one who originally told you it was unnecessary. Most concerns, that I've seen here, care about the quality and relevance that is shown in the image itself. The admins have stated before that although the SmashWiki is connected to the Mario and Zelda Wikis, the SmashWiki has its own Policies seprate from the other Wikis that SmashWiki is suppose to follow. However, if you wish to make the file conversion a priority on the Wiki, I suggest creating a proposal on the matter. I hope this helps with your efforts! Wolff (talk) 21:18, April 28, 2019 (EDT)
I probably won't bother since it would get overturned. Conker the Squirrel (talk) 21:20, April 28, 2019 (EDT)
I apologize that your image conversions don't appear currently necessary for the Wiki. What I had mentioned before are still options that are available if you still wish to go though the efforts of converting all the files. Wolff (talk) 21:28, April 28, 2019 (EDT)
It's ok, I just personally think this makes the wiki look more organized. Conker the Squirrel (talk) 21:30, April 28, 2019 (EDT)

Image tagging[edit]

When tagging images for deletion, make sure they're not being used on a userspace article first. If they're being used in someone's userspace, don't tag it, instead replace the categories on the image with Category:User images. Disaster Flare My signature image for the default signature.

Got it, thanks Conker the Squirrel (talk) 21:26, 29 September 2018 (EDT)

This edit[edit]

Just because Zelda Wiki moved over to Gamepedia doesn't mean they aren't NIWA. Also, I would argue calling them "losers" is a personal attack against the whole wiki. Awesomelink234, the Super Cool Gamer Leave a message if needed 21:38, July 6, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, i tend to have these shortcoming moments. i'll try not to do that again -- been talking to alex95 about stuff (e.g. this) as well Conker the Squirrel (talk) 00:27, July 7, 2019 (EDT)


Hey just wanted to ask if you could make one large edit on your css rather than several small edits. It's flooding the recent changes. Pokebub (talk) 01:06, July 7, 2020 (EDT)

sure, just let me make one last edit... Conker the Squirrel (talk) 01:11, July 7, 2020 (EDT)
