Importing images

Hey Prod. You have any idea how we should tackle a file import/export? We used a bot on Pikipedia, but if you have a better idea, let us know. Espyo (talk) 14:33, 24 May 2015 (UTC)


Hey. This wiki will need the references addon. You know, the thing with <ref>. Espyo (talk) 14:48, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Done. -- Prod (talk) 03:17, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Admin rights

Hey Prod. Seeing that you're the site's only Bureaucrat, I figured I could ask you about getting admin rights on this wiki. I've found myself running into situations many times where admin rights would be useful (e.g. updating missing MediaWiki pages, deleting files and unneeded redirects, improving protected templates, etc.). I'm also Director over at Nookipedia, if that speaks for anything, and I know I could help out here in a more timely fashion. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 20:22, 2 June 2015 (UTC)


Hey Prod, shouldn't it be possible for admins to edit the interwiki link list at Special:Interwiki? Because I can't do it. Espyo (talk) 15:38, 3 June 2015 (UTC)


You may put this Barnsquid on your user page, talk page, or awards subpage.

When you get the chance

Would you mind taking a look at my proposal for a Notability policy? Nyargleblargle Let's go Mets! (Talk · Contribs) 21:41, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Uploading Files

Hi, please can you help me upload a file, because I'm trying to upload some files for References to Splatoon in other media Thanks --Adster1005 (talk) 11:46, 21 December 2015 (UTC)


I heard you were looking into it, and we could really use it to combat the spam. I hate to sound impatient, but any word on that? Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 02:02, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

What is the use case you were looking for? For privacy reasons, we discussed that admins shouldn't get CheckUser as IPs are considered private information. Checkuser is supposed to help find sockpuppets, but you have to identify them by behaviour first. -- Prod (talk) 05:53, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
The person(s) who keeps creating those tech support pages. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 21:59, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
I checked the IPs of the last few blocked accounts, and beyond some regional consistency, there's nothing really connecting them to each other. Either someone has broken the captcha, or they're having people solve it. -- Prod (talk) 16:07, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Bureaucrat nominations

Just wondering whether or not I could nominate a user for bureaucrat rights, since I do think that they deserve them, and that they could use them. Inkling luke.pngInkling talk.png 20:35, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

We have an internal chat amongst admins for promotion to bureaucrat per this, however I'm sure it doesn't hurt to make a case anyway and we'll discuss it!
Kjhf Talk Contribs 20:17, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
You're the one I want to nominate so make sure to mention that if you do discuss it since I don't see why any of the admins would disagree! Inkling luke.pngInkling talk.png 20:24, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
I'm flattered haha, thanks for your support and will do! Kjhf Talk Contribs 20:47, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

File uploads

Could you edit LocalSettings to forbid uploads of .pdf files? A lot of vandals have been uploading them recently. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:05, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Done. -- Prod (talk) 16:19, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Stage Schedule

I saw GuyPercet made script for stage schedule script to be implemented in the wiki and I guess he or kjhf may have sent it to you. How is that coming along? Shachar700Sig.png (Shachar700SigTalk.png) 02:06, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

French wiki links

Hello, I just came by to say that neither the main page nor the recent changes at the French wiki has an interwiki link. Thought I'd ask you here because I'm not sure that you would answer at the French wiki. --Raltseye (talk) 12:11, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Main page appears to have it. I don't think it's possible to set up Interwikis for Special pages though. -- Prod (talk) 15:48, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
You can: set an interwiki link on MediaWiki:recentchangestext pointing to en:Speial:RecentChanges like we have. Kjhf Talk Contribs 15:56, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
Oh, that's cool! Done. -- Prod (talk) 16:07, 11 June 2016 (UTC)


I am looking at the user log and found Mr. squid became a patroller. How do I do that?GogglesKunInkling(Talk|Contribs) (again, forgot to sign it) 10:54, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Not Prod, but most users receive the right after a month or two of consistent, frequent editing. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 18:45, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
