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)Reply[reply]


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

Done. -- Prod (talk) 03:17, 17 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]


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)Reply[reply]


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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]


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 (Contribs) 02:02, 10 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
The person(s) who keeps creating those tech support pages. Nyargleblargle (Contribs) 21:59, 10 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

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. 20:35, 8 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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!
Slate Talk Contribs 20:17, 9 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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! 20:24, 9 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm flattered haha, thanks for your support and will do! Slate Talk Contribs 20:47, 9 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File uploads

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

Done. -- Prod (talk) 16:19, 27 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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? 02:06, 28 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
You can: set an interwiki link on MediaWiki:recentchangestext pointing to en:Speial:RecentChanges like we have. Slate Talk Contribs 15:56, 11 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, that's cool! Done. -- Prod (talk) 16:07, 11 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]


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)Reply[reply]

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

Uploading file

I found another concept art, but it won't let me upload it.Destinithompson (talk)

You'll have to elaborate on the matter. --Raltseye prata med mej 11:05, 23 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have not gotten a confirmation email yet!

I recently made an account so I can help contribute to the site and be part of the community, but I have not recieved any confirmation email yet, witch bothers me. I have tried the "Recieve new confirmation email" option, but it still does not work. Sometimes it says I have recieved an email, sometimes it just prints an error, but I never actually get any confirmation email. I have even tried emptying the email address field and re-enter my email address. I still have not gotten any confirmation email. Can I get any help? -tecanec (talk) 08:30, 2 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

French wiki

Hey, I'd like some infos if possible about Inkipédia, in particular how it relates to the English wiki. I can see it uses your design; did you powered it, helped it to settle or anything?

Actually, I'm head of a French independent Dragon Quest wiki and I'd like to create a French equivalent of NIWA, or even a general videogame wiki alliance. I'm not asking the french Inkipédia directly, beacause it is unfortunately inactive at the moment (but I hope this will change, as it has no serious (Wikia) competitors). --Tigali (talk) 10:16, 21 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have some things for you

Ok, the list is:

  1. Proposal of an idea in the talk section of ItoM
  2. Widget 3 goes off-screen, do you think you could fix it?

That's all. For now, at least. I probably might come back for more things. 20:14, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For #2, do you have an example page? -- Prod (talk) 21:09, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
User:Eleven23/Sandbox 22:35, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We stopped using widget3 a long time ago, and it's no longer used in any mainspace article. Please just don't use it. Heddy (talk) 18:28, 10 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I sent you a message. Just thought I would let you know. :) Toad293 03:52, 5 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Visual editing doesn't work on subpages

I was attempting to edit my sandbox, but it gave me this error message: "Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server (HTTP 404)". I had to source edit instead. Here is the URL:!0/Sandbox&veaction=edit. I tried this for another subpage, and I had the same result. Thanks, Sapphy (talk) 03:41, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, this is a known issue. It'll be dealt with in a future update. Prod (talk) 03:56, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wow, thank you for responding so quickly! Sapphy (talk) 03:59, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How do I delete files?

I accidentally made a copy of the Squid Sisters model from Splatoon 3 as there is already a link that exists. How do I delete my own files from the wiki? Do the admins have to delete it? KPOfficial26 (talk) 12:45, 23 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, it'll have to be done by admins. If you tag it with {{delete}}, one of the admins should see it. Prod (talk) 00:36, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A Question

I was wondering if we should add a certain fact to the Bear with Me trivia.

If you take the average of the letters in each word in Bear With Me, you come out with 3.33333...


-Cuttlfish59 (talk) 17:56, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This type of question belongs on the Bear with Me talk page. Thanks! EminenceTalk 18:08, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I asked it there, but nobody responded. I was wondering if an admin could give me an answer. Cuttlfish59 (talk) 23:01, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you want to contact a staff member, I would suggest looking at their contributions log. Since Prod has not edited the wiki in 3 months, they are probably not the best option for a prompt response. In the future, please contact me or another active staff member. In regards to your question, this is likely a coincidence and does not warrant a trivia entry. EminenceTalk 23:07, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Furthermore, Prod is exclusively back-end in terms of dealing with the wiki. More appropriate administration would be Heddy or Exaskliri. Trig - 03:12, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
