'Sup, fellas, Katsumi a.k.a. Upperdecker2562 here!

I am here to announce that CGW has once again got a new template: Protected.

It is recommended that this template be added to protected pages.

Example: {{Protected|Fully protected|Ain't no bitches gonna hunt no vandals.}}

Result:


THIS PAGE IS PROTECTED

Restriction level: Fully protected
Reason: Ain't no bitches gonna hunt no vandals.

And now for something completely different:

  • Big Bro: You've got a new pet pig?
  • Der König der Würfel: Yup. A small and smelly pig. It's a bit stubborn. Whenever somebody yells at it, it bites their finger off. Almost as if it cannot take criticism.
  • Big Bro: Kurwa maćFor fuck's sake... That's some pig. So what's its name?
  • Der König der Würfel: Oh, we call it Alex Mahan, or Alex for short. Named after a game developer or something.
  • Big Bro: Dude. Change the name. This is very disrespectful.
  • Der König der Würfel: But why? Is it because it's very disrespectful to the developer?
  • Big Bro: No, it's because it is very disrespectful to the pig.
Once again, I'm Katsumi a.k.a. Upperdecker2562, your friendly contributor.
Adios, Amigos y Amigas!

It's a cool template.


PD: I loved the discussion about the pig.

Raidarr (talkcontribs)

Isn't this basically seen when someone attempts to edit the page, though? Seems a bit superfluous.

Galaxy Star (talkcontribs)

I'll add /doc soon.

The7Guy (talkcontribs)

Yikes, you didn't have to do YandereDev like that LMAO

Katsumi a.k.a. Upperdecker2562 (talkcontribs)

Oh, you mean the small story in the "And now for something completely different" section?

The7Guy (talkcontribs)

Yup, that part was hilarious

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

This will also apply to pages that are locked only to autoconfirmed users like the Pawn Community page on FWW, right? That page could really use one.

The7Guy (talkcontribs)

The template is cool though, it could be just a little bit smaller though.

NJPet (talkcontribs)

That "warning" text is a bit creepy. But don't forget to add this template to other wikis!

Allistayrian (talkcontribs)

This template looks neat. That pig discussion made me laugh tho.

How do I make my user page with wiki userpage?

5
The7Guy (talkcontribs)

I want to use it because it is more expressive and less buggy than the social userpage, but I don't know where to start.

King Dice (talkcontribs)

Start With an user infobox

The7Guy (talkcontribs)

Is there a template for the user infobox, like the game infobox?

King Dice (talkcontribs)
The7Guy (talkcontribs)

Yo, thanks for the help!!! Also, I can continue making it like a normal page, right?

I want to leave Miraheze, how do I delete my account?

Depresso Caspico (talkcontribs)

Hey there! I've been a user here for less than a year, but I'm considering leaving since I've grown tired and so I want to know if there's a way I can delete my account. Thanks in advance!

The Dunkman (talkcontribs)

There's a log out button on the top right.

The Dunkman (talkcontribs)

Also, bye!

Allistayrian (talkcontribs)

You can't delete your own account. Instead, request it on Meta on Miraheze.

King Dice (talkcontribs)

Hope you have a good life outside

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

You can't delete your account, but you can request the Stewards to global it after you leave.

DarkMatterMan4500 (talkcontribs)

Yes, self-requested locks can be requested on there, but for an account to be vanished, they'll have to contact T&S via electronic mail (email). For direct inquiries, they should email ts@miraheze.org --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 20:02, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Really? MarioMario once told me accounts couldn't be deleted.

Depresso Caspico (talkcontribs)

How do I request it?

DarkMatterMan4500 (talkcontribs)

Send Trust & Safety an email if you want your account to be vanished. Their email is ts@miraheze.org, but don't request it publicly. Same applies to reporting underaged users. T&S also handles those types of issues, and reporting it publicly will only sound silly and/or rather foolish. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 19:59, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

How to make a new sandbox or free up my old one?

3
Octavio (talkcontribs)

I want to make a page about one of the games that comes with the SmarTV Adventures, but my sandbox has a redirect to the SmarTV Adventures page. How do i either free up my sandbox or get a new sandbox?

Allistayrian (talkcontribs)

Remove the redirect. That's it.

Octavio (talkcontribs)

Ok thanks

'Sup, fellas, Katsumi a.k.a. Upperdecker2562 here!

Once again, I am here to tell you that I am working on a new page about — you guess it — Lightspan Adventures.

This is an interesting piece of history. It's a series of PS1 edutainment games published by Lightspan Inc. And of course, they (some games) suck balls.

The Lightspan games reviews are pretty scarce — and this is because Google (and YouTube) searchs for serious reviews came up almost empty (save for AVGN's).

Nevertheless, I find the Lightspan games fascinating for how obscure and crappy they are, so I created a page for them.

There's just one problem: lack of information. All of the reasons why these games suck come from AVGN's review — the only review that I know of. I guess I could try playing them, but as far as I know, ROMs of these games are as rare as unicorns on the Internet, and I do not have a PS1 and the discs on hand to play them. So, that sucks!

And now for something completely different:
Did you know that the second chapter of the Re:Zero manga adaptation was published by none other than Square Enix?

Once again, I'm Katsumi a.k.a. Upperdecker2562, your friendly contributor.

Comments are fucked up

PituckosTheCockatiel (talkcontribs)
SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Yeah, this kind of problem's been going on for months now. I asked the Stewards to fix this, but nothing's been done about it yet. Hopefully it's not broken beyond repair.

Blazikeye535 (talkcontribs)

I've noticed as well, I posted a comment responding to you jokingly saying my "facial hair" sucks, but it showed up in the wrong comment replies.

PituckosTheCockatiel (talkcontribs)

Comnebts need fix

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Why not try asking the Stewards aboyt this? Maybe they've figured out a way to fix this?

Ahh, another day in paradise.

Looks like we've got a new page.

I have quit the ItsFunneh wikis

6
JrStudios (talkcontribs)

The fans attacked me for placing KREW Eats here, because they check everywhere for hate. They told me and got mad at me, so I decide “SCREW ALL ITSFUNNEH FANS!” Do not trust them. I tried to tell them, but they just care about ItsFunneh, their “god”.

Allistayrian (talkcontribs)

Why do you even care about ItsFunneh to begin with?

JrStudios (talkcontribs)

I started the wiki to make myself look good because the old wiki was falling. Since then, they got on me for my hate for her. Go to my garbage roblox games wiki page on her to find out

PituckosTheCockatiel (talkcontribs)

What is the ItsFunneh wiki

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Yeah, what is it?

JrStudios (talkcontribs)

It’s a wiki about ItsFunneh and her videos

Do you think age ratings should be considered valid points on this wiki?

1
Atomicstar (talkcontribs)

I previously started a discussion in Qualitipedia Meta, but I was suggested to post it here instead as it mostly only applies to CGW.

I will be citing Coin Master and Hole.io as examples of what I am referring to.

In my opinion, inaccurate age ratings should not be considered valid points. Firstly, it does not affect the actual content or expectation of content. Unless your taste is for games with mature content, but you shouldn't really use age rating as a way to decide whether or not you will like a game. It does not really affect the consumer in any way (aside from deciding not to allow your child to play the game). It mostly only affects the developer, as they will likely have less children as their audience. Secondly, developers either have little control over it or don't bother spending the effort to change it. For PC and console games, they are rated by ESRB or other regional equivalent organizations. For iOS games (I am not familiar with Google Play and Amazon App Store development), age ratings are mostly determined by a quiz. Coin Master for example, has a 17+ rating because Apple considers it as simulated gambling. There are some others where the developers just don't think it is worth the effort to retake the quiz or contact Apple staff to appeal, but again it doesn't really affect consumers, it more affects the developers and amount of audience.

Also, I'm referring to points regarding age ratings considered too high. Not about age ratings too low (i.e. games not appropriate for children but still rated E), which in this case can be a good point.

This isn't too big of an issue so it probably doesn't need to become a rule, but something I just want to discuss about. --Atomicstar (talk) 21:21, 18 October 2021 (UTC)

Why you guys keep acting like it’s just Nintendo of America that makes bad business decisions?

22
DeadPixel (talkcontribs)

I’ve had to say it before and I’ll say it again. A lot of Nintendo’s bad business practices have happened since before Doug Bowser became CEO and most of these business decisions would have to go through the execs at Nintendo of Japan. And while we’re on the topic of you guys blaming Doug Bowser, why does the redeeming qualities section for Nintendo’s business practices say that most of the practices can be blamed on Doug Bowser? How is that a redeeming quality? It doesn’t change anything about their business practices being bad. I see every page about a company’s business practices mention this in the RQ section.

Blazikeye535 (talkcontribs)

I've seen numerous videos that point out that Nintendo of Japan are to blame equally for making awful decisions. This reminds me a few years ago when the wikis were pinning all of Sega's problems on the NA division.

DeadPixel (talkcontribs)

If I recall correctly, Sega’s American division was actually against Sega of Japan’s decision to sell NFTs.

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Could this be the reason why nobody outside of the Reception Wikis is solely blaming Nintendo's American division instead of the company as a whole?

Blazikeye535 (talkcontribs)

Obviously.

PituckosTheCockatiel (talkcontribs)

Yes but Nintendo of America actions are worse than Nintendo of Japan

PituckosTheCockatiel (talkcontribs)

Nintendo of Japan still lives in 2005 while Nintendo of America disrespects their fans

Kringe (talkcontribs)

Just because the NA is worse than JP doesn't mean that JP shouldn't deserve their own spotlight for their shitty business.

Dragonite (talkcontribs)

I got to admit it, we should stop pinning all of the terrible business practices solely on Nintendo of America and Doug Bowser himself, since they aren't the only reasons why Nintendo's practices are bad, because even other Nintendo's branches made shitty business practices as well.

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

I think LeroyManTheFirst was the one responsible for causing us to blame NOA and keeping Nintendo out of this wiki for his own personal gain by using one of his sock accounts many months ago, if anyone remembers that.

Kringe (talkcontribs)

In my opinion. Naming the page "(Company's name)'s business practices" were sounded like we are trying to downplay their bad actions, as if it were "neccessary evil" of the supposed "good" companies to made such a greedy and bad decisions, despite it was the company itself who have made this decisions.

If we're to using this naming sense (like how Capcom's page was recently renamed), I think a lot of company page will "fit" into this "whitewashing" naming sense as well, such as Epic Games or Paradox Interactive.

Just a reminder that Nintendo is not a god of gaming who has done nothing wrong, by the way.

DeadPixel (talkcontribs)

I'm the one who created the page about Nintendo's business practices and then others created pages about (Company's name)'s business practices that were inspired by the page, and I feel that that kind of page name started to become overused. I mean, TTSW made a page titled, "ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks' business practices." They did change that today, thankfully.

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Now don't get me wrong, I'm a diehard Nintendo fan (though I'm not into every single one of their franchises), and they're one of my favorite game companies, but even I see their downsides like overproctectiveness of their IPs, underpowering their own consoles, and charging for online multiplayer.

DeadPixel (talkcontribs)

The reason why I made the page about Nintendo's business practices rather than Nintendo as a whole is because the creative side to them is still amazing. They're still bringing us amazing titles like Metroid Dread. I'm not sure if you guys saw, but around the time the Big House got that C&D order, a lot of people were making memes about Nintendo making games vs. Nintendo making business decisions.

DeadPixel (talkcontribs)

So are we gonna remove the parts of that page that blame NOA and Doug Bowser?

RyMann37 (talkcontribs)

In the end, I would still just recommend blaming Nintendo of America‘s legal team for the overprotection of the intellectual property and the 90’s censorship.

DeadPixel (talkcontribs)
RyMann37 (talkcontribs)

I know but I would just say most of it though. I’ve seen this before.

Marxo Grouch (talkcontribs)

Sounds logical given the sentiment shared by everyone in this topic.

RyMann37 (talkcontribs)

Honestly through the way I still see it, Nintendo of America is still mostly known to poison the reputation behind the overprotecting of the intellectual property and censorship in the 90’s while Japan themselves are also known to mess up via charging for multiplayer and ridiculous pricing on remasters.

RyMann37 (talkcontribs)

And to mention that Nintendo of America’s despicable actions like the 90’s censorship happened way before Bowser’s rise to power.

RyMann37 (talkcontribs)

Don’t even get me wrong here, they aren’t really the best gaming company but believing Satoru Iwata’s death was the cause of questionable bad business practices is just stupid. Besides, most companies like Sony and Capcom are known to making questionable decisions like these no matter what division did it.
