User talk:DarkInsanity

From the Super Mario Wiki

[edit]

Hi mr. Darkinsanity! I'm Master Crash! I've heard about you but never seen you before, So, How come you went inactive?

Master Crash


Hi[edit]

Just dropped by to say hi and are you planning to be here more often?F gLarrynana.gif

Probably not, as I'm quite busy with other things currently (mostly managing my guild, and its site, from an MMO I play), but I do drop in from time to time. In fact, the only reason I'm here right now is because I wanted to check something on the SMWi for reference. -DarkInsanity (talk)

Well just hoping that you don't quit.F gLarrynana.gif


Hi[edit]

Hi I'm The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNGI've never met you, are you new?

nevermind.

The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNGyour a user who left...

Well, yes, I suppose. Back when I was here I was one of the most active editors at the SMWi, but some stuff in my life got kind of hectic, and I wasn't able to visit the site for a while. Then I just kind of slumped in to a state of inactivity that involves me just popping in every once in a while. It also seems I've kind of fallen out of the loop of everything going on around here, from The 'Shroom to even this personal messaging system, to just about everything. I mean, even user sig templates and whatnot were just beginning to be created when I left the first time. But oh well... you guys have an awesome looking wiki going on here, with a lot of information about Mario and the rest of his gang of peoples. Anyway, it was nice meeting you. -DarkInsanity (talk)


What's Up[edit]

Hi DarkInsanity just dropped by to say how are you and haven't seen you for a while.--Fg 16:57, 22 February 2007 (EST)

I bet your surprised to see how much this wiki's grown, huh? Plumber, You don't know who I am
RAP.pngRAP... What's up?? I wonder why you came back...
Oh yeah, definitely. This site has grown way past what it was when I was real active, with everything from The 'Shroom to the all the templates and pages made simply to help manage the site... even the new messaging system that was being advertised in the site notice the other day. Though I probably won't be returning to the SMWi full time soon, I still pop in every now and then to see how things are going. Pretty amazing. -DarkInsanity (talk)


Sysop[edit]

You know, I am a sysop too. Your user page makes me feel left out. --Son of Suns 01:49, 25 June 2006 (EDT)

Heh, sorry. It's updated now. --DarkInsanity (talk)

I feel left out, too. HK

And now it's eleven. (I just got promoted on the 18th) --KPH2293 00:14, 19 March 2007 (EDT)


What[edit]

What qualifies an edit as "minor"? HK-47 14:53, 14 June 2006 (EDT)

Just use your best judgement. Generally things that don't make a big difference to the page if you were to just glance through it; spelling fixes, link fixes, etc. --DarkInsanity (talk)

Like a double link within five words of each other. See Angry Sun's history. HK-47 15:00, 14 June 2006 (EDT)


How[edit]

How do I move a picture I uploaded, into an article?

You use this code:
[[Image:<imagename>]]

You can also add other stuff into it, like a frame, or where it is to be placed on the page, by adding more, different code into the image's first line of code. Like so:

[[Image:<imagename>|frame|<location(center,right,left)>|<comment>]]

To see what I mean, go to a page that already has an image, then click "edit," and see how they put in their image's code. --DarkInsanity (talk)

Okay, thanks! HK-47 14:18, 14 June 2006 (EDT)
I would suggest checking out the Mario Kart (series) page, as the image is very easy to find under the edit tab. Check out the coding, and come back if you need more help. --DarkInsanity (talk)

Okey-Dokey. You might want to check out the Luigi's mansion page to see if I do this right. HK-47 14:21, 14 June 2006 (EDT)

I messed up here somewhere. HK-47 14:28, 14 June 2006 (EDT)

How do you figure? Looks right to me, just a bit big. --DarkInsanity (talk)

Okay, yeah, I thought it was big. Any idea how to size it down. Oh, and Im sorry I edited your User page, but the dotted lines around when you joined kind of bugged me. Sorry. HK-47 14:42, 14 June 2006 (EDT)

Yes, I do know how to size it down. I'll do it myself in a minute, then you can just look at the coding yourself, as it's kinda confusing to explain. --DarkInsanity (talk)
Ah, sorry, can't get it to shrink; there's still some problems with image editing in the SMWi since Steve switched our host a few days ago. --DarkInsanity (talk)

That's cool. Maybe later I'll look for a different, smaller picture. HK-47 15:18, 14 June 2006 (EDT)


My Regards[edit]

Thanks for the support! =) --Son of Suns 12:46, 30 May 2006 (EDT)


About Marioman5555[edit]

Hello. I am having problems with a user named Marioman5555. He has recently been putting up articles about Kingdom Sandwiches, a fanfic he made up. Thus I requested that these articles be deleted, as they are not relevant to Mario. However, Marioman5555 then decided to vandalize my User page (which you can see for yourself). What should I do about this problem? --Son of Suns 16:50, 15 May 2006 (EDT)

That should do it. I deleted most of the 'Kingdom Sandwiches' related topics (I say most because I don't know if I got them all or not), and am attempting to take out any 'Kingdom Sandwiches' links I find. Also, because he vandalized your user page, I blocked him from editing pages on the Super Mario Wiki for one week, so you won't hear from him until, at the least, next Monday. Also, I would not suggest keeping a list of 'vandalizations' on your user page. Not sure why... I just wouldn't suggest it. --DarkInsanity (talk)
There is still a Kingdom Sandwiches category page that needs to be deleted. Thanks for the help! --Son of Suns 18:23, 17 May 2006 (EDT)

I hope you havent been living in a rock[edit]

if you havent noticed with your sony-like reflexes,you should go to ign more often,maybe gamespot too,heres the source so you can get updated on Super Mario Galaxy. http://media.revolution.ign.com/articles/706/706227/vids_1.html

Rock indeed. Thank you for your source, though I still have noticed that you have the unnerving habit of simply copying articles from Wikipedia, and importing them into the Super Mario Wiki, like your recent Wii article. If you do this, and were not the one to compose the original Wikipedia article, please put in italics at the bottom of the imported page "Retrieved from <article link>." -DarkInsanity (talk)
Will do-LuigiAD


Super Mario Advance 6[edit]

I'm a bit curious about Super Mario Advance 6. I poked around a bit and I couldn't find anything about it. Could you give me a link to your source? Also, don't you find this a bit... unusual. Mario is Missing didn't sell very well in the U.S., the GBA is obsolete thanks to the DS, and there's no Super Mario Advance 5. How reliable is this source? --Wanderingshadow

I havn't done any editing on a SMA6; are you confusing me with someone else? I also did a search for that game on the wiki, I couldn't find anything. Though if there is something, we should probably delete it. I havn't heard of a SMA6 anywhere, either. -DarkInsanity (talk)


Deleting[edit]

I was going to work on some of the deleted stuff you did, just came by to tell you. I don't get on as much as before. Elite Yoshi 19:02, 30 Mar 2006 (EST)Elite Yoshi

Alright, though hopefully you have noticed that the new user Salty has done more for this wiki then you, and you've been here for a week. Also, don't create blank pages, than leave them blank. Before you even make the first save, make sure a sentence or two is on there, if not the full article you're going to type. Blank pages = bad karma. Also, what have we deleted of yours, anyway? -DarkInsanity (talk)
But the past few weeks, i've haven't been on for a long time like Salty. Sometimes I make blank pages and leave it blank so i can work on it later. hte worked deleted from me was the golden mushroom. I'm sorry, i was trying to let other peolpe have a chance if they made a blank page and will come back to work on it later. See ya Elite Yoshi--Elite Yoshi 13:21, 31 Mar 2006 (EST)

Main Page Talk[edit]

You seem to be the only sysop logged on right now, so I was wondering why the Main Page discussion is protected from editting. On other wikis, it is for discussion of wiki projects and such. SaltyTalk! 19:32, 30 Mar 2006 (EST)

No clue, ask Porplemontage; he's the head guy around here. Though my idea would be so people wouldn't delete the "clear cache" item in there, as well as that page is highly public, and thus highly suceptable to vandalism and whatnot. -DarkInsanity (talk)
Just take a look at the history of the page. We never used it, and all we did was revert it from vandalism. I'll open it up sometime soon, now that I'm here more I can better put up with the vandalism. --Steve (talk) 20:03, 30 Mar 2006 (EST)
