I recommend buying a copy of it - it's been described as "serene and dreamlike", "eccentric" and "unusually sinister", and every review I've seen has given it five stars

Welcome back[edit]

BlindColours ...PUNCH!!! 19:56, 9 October 2011 (EDT)

Same :D ..... 1999-2011 FalcoHeadSSBB.png well? 19:57, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
You seem to have been an admin, do you still have admin rights as of now? BlindColours ...PUNCH!!! 19:59, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
No, user rights weren't carried over. PenguinofDeath 20:05, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
This means that his admin rights wern't carried over from wikia to this wiki. ..... 1999-2011 FalcoHeadSSBB.png well? 20:09, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
PoD, you were the first user I ever talked to on SmashWiki. You have no idea how glad I am that you are back. Mr. AnonMatchupUnknown.pngtalk 20:24, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
^_^ Glad to be back. PenguinofDeath 20:26, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
To dots: Why did you have to state the obvious? BlindColours ...PUNCH!!! 20:37, 9 October 2011 (EDT)

PenguinofDeath more like Master of Help[edit]

Ha, thanks bro you've been a big help so far, even though it may not seem like much I appreciate you helping me keep tight man. --SlitherxSig.png (TC ) 17:58, 20 October 2011 (EDT) "Don't give me mercy."-- Qu&Wow by Slitherx

IRC[edit]

According to SW:IRC, you are not supposed to joke ban. Can you please unban me? Mr. AnonMatchupUnknown.pngtalk 14:16, 22 October 2011 (EDT)

New Chat[edit]

I realize that chats are supposed to be done on one page but I would like to be able to tell when I get a response. I set it so I am watching this page. I'll go adjust some of them to make it more readable. The main reason why is just that they believe that Dream-Land should be the only legal stage. Their issue with Hyrule is the camp and tornadoes while Congo is banned for some unknown reason (really...LOL, even one of the main tournament organizers couldn't think of a reason, they just banned it). Their community just prefers to play on that stage in general. --LoS PPS KoRos (talk) 12:11, 2 November 2011 (EDT)

Yo[edit]

If you look carefully on recently blocked I.P, you could see that those I.P #'s are similar and I'm guessing its Smashpeter. How does he get back with various I.Ps while he already does not have anything to do about this wiki anymore. ..... More Food........ FoxHeadSSBB.png 15:00, 5 November 2011 (EDT)

We already know it's SmashPeter, and he's mad for being blocked. IP's change a bit from time to time.BlindColoursBoing.png 15:31, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
But its very clear that its similar. ..... More Food........ FoxHeadSSBB.png 15:35, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
(edit conflict) Not that quickly, they don't... And this issue is being discussed on IRC at the moment. PenguinofDeath 15:37, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
Maybe he's using proxies or whatever they're called? Also: But its very clear that its similar.-I don't get what you're saying dots, could you please elaborate on it more? BlindColoursBoing.png 18:51, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
He uses different IPs, but they're all really similar. He's used five IPs so far, four of which have started 85.210. That means that an IP range block is a viable option. PenguinofDeath 19:00, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
Smashpeter uses different IPs to avoid his block, but he hasn't been successful at doing so. ..... More Food........ FoxHeadSSBB.png 19:36, 5 November 2011 (EDT)
Um, we know. BlindColoursBoing.png 19:47, 5 November 2011 (EDT)

Explanation needed[edit]

Why is Charizard low on the tiers? Drakon64 (talk) 15:49, 26 November 2011 (EST)

This is a question better off asking in the Forums than asking a random user on their talk page. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 15:59, 26 November 2011 (EST)
Charizard isn't low tier, Pokémon Trainer is. PenguinofDeath 16:04, 26 November 2011 (EST)

WTF?[edit]

WHY THE HELL DID YOU BAN ME FROM THE CHAT? SHAME ON YOU! YOU'RE A HORRIBLE PERSON. Avengingbandit VeryHardDifficulty.png 10:35, 24 December 2011 (EST)

You seem to have accidentally pressed the "Caps Lock" key; it's the one just to the left of the "A" key. Regarding your ban (which, by the way, is only temporary), many users found you both offensively annoying and annoyingly offensive. It wasn't personal (so you are unjustified in calling me a "horrible person"), I was simply doing my duty as an admin. I would like to point out that posting messages in all caps, and being generally offensive ("why the hell", "horrible person", etc.) can very easily lead to you being banned on the wiki, and possibly permanently banned on IRC. You have been warned. PenguinofDeath 11:13, 24 December 2011 (EST)
Yes, I'll admit, I get angry sometimes, but remember, I'm just some guy who likes to play Brawl on a daily basis. Jeez. And I'm not offensive. Solar Dragon started it by being the offensive person. And I should say sorry? 'Many users'? How many users find me offensive? Again, I do get angry sometimes, but I'm not THAT mean. I've read the IRC channel policy shortly before you've replied, so sorry for everything. Avengingbandit VeryHardDifficulty.png 11:31, 24 December 2011 (EST)
You were warned multiple times that your behavior was annoying, and that it could lead to a ban. You continued being annoying, so you were banned. PenguinofDeath 11:44, 24 December 2011 (EST)
If you find me annoying, tell me. That should solve all of our problems. Regarding the caps lock, I'm not stupid; I know where the caps lock is. I did it on purpose to express my feelings towards you. Avengingbandit VeryHardDifficulty.png 11:49, 24 December 2011 (EST)
I find you annoying, but me saying that doesn't solve all of our problems; what would solve all of our problems would be you stopping being annoying on IRC. As it's Christmas, your ban (and Drakon64's) will be removed tomorrow, but next time it won't be so short. PenguinofDeath 12:00, 24 December 2011 (EST)
Fine. We cool? Avengingbandit VeryHardDifficulty.png 12:03, 24 December 2011 (EST)
For now, we cool. PenguinofDeath 12:08, 24 December 2011 (EST)
Just exactly how much more do I have to wait for the ban to be lifted? I recently went on the webchat and it says I was still banned. Avengingbandit VeryHardDifficulty.png 13:26, 25 December 2011 (EST)

Headers are for squares[edit]

If you don't ban me permanently ill destroy this wiki.Drakon64 (talk) 11:15, 24 December 2011 (EST)

I very much doubt that. Also, quit vandalizing pages. -_- PenguinofDeath 11:44, 24 December 2011 (EST)
Perma-Ban me or else.Drakon64 (talk) 11:48, 24 December 2011 (EST)
No. PenguinofDeath 12:00, 24 December 2011 (EST)
Whats the point of demanding permabans anyways? ..... towmmarow is Chrismas MarioHeadSSBB.png 14:35, 24 December 2011 (EST)
I thought I was far too troublesome on this wiki. I thought I didnt deserve to be here. I knew that I might cause problems in the future. That's why. I don't care anymore now, though.Drakon64 CharizardHeadSSBB.png

Happy new years![edit]

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!! Avengingbandit NormalDifficulty.png 13:34, 1 January 2012 (EST)

IRC connection problem[edit]

For some reason, I keep trying to connect to the IRC, but even after my ban expired, I can't connect. Can you help me? THEAVENGINGBANDIT 16:23, 17 January 2012 (EST)

We changed the way the channel is set up, so now you need to register your nick (which you can do here) and sign in to GameSurge before you can join the channel. We had a lot of trouble with people coming from another network and spamming our channel, and this was the best solution, though it does mean you've got to remember to sign in every time. PenguinofDeath 16:46, 17 January 2012 (EST)
Every time I try to log in, it always says "No data received. Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data." THEAVENGINGBANDIT 16:54, 17 January 2012 (EST)
Try again now. I've removed the anti-spam protection we had, so you don't need to sign in. That should make it easier. PenguinofDeath 17:13, 17 January 2012 (EST)
Thank you. THEAVENGINGBANDIT 17:24, 17 January 2012 (EST)

?[edit]

PoD i have a question, im trying to make an infobox for my user page but i dont know how could you give me the code i need, please? Mich5643 (talk) 17:43, 24 March 2012 (EDT)

Template:Userbox tells you everything you need to know. Other than size, you can change everything about them. PenguinofDeath 16:24, 26 March 2012 (EDT)

Thanks PoD youre a good help! Mich5643 (talk) 06:38, 1 April 2012 (EDT)

IRC[edit]

Dude. Please give me a reason why i was kickbanned on IRC. Tell me which rule i broke in order to do so. LightningBlue: LBPeep LB Peep.png 11:11, 28 April 2012 (EDT)

One Question for You[edit]

Hey PoD, why do you say "less is more" on userpages? I can understand sig minimalism, but why not allow your userpage to be all the info you want about Smash? Not offended in the least, just curious :) (as soon as you see mine, you'll see I'm guilty of this very thing). SSB Symbol (flat).png davidvkimball 03:36, 24 December 2013 (EST)

One of the jobs I've had over the years involved summarizing reports for a law firm, and I think that ingrained me with an appreciation of minimalism, specifically the art of expressing yourself fully as concisely as possible. To put it simply, if you include all the available information, you dilute the most important stuff, so either someone will be distracted by fluff and won't see the important information that you actually really wanted them to see, or they'll look at the page and go "jeez this is long, I can't be bothered to read it now, maybe later", and then they never do, so what's the point in even putting anything down if no one reads any of it? My userpage actually has four different messages, and it changes every day. Also the text "less is more" is a link to the Wikipedia article on minimalism, which everyone should read. PenguinofDeath 03:54, 24 December 2013 (EST)
Ah, thanks for sharing. There's a lot of truth to what you're saying. Yes, I have read the page on minimalism before. It's fascinating stuff, and a big reason I'm actually a fan of Microsoft's newest design language, especially evident in Windows Phone. Have you looked into it?
