From Pikmin Fanon

Hey, Salem!

Hello, Salem, and welcome to Pikmin Fanon, the wiki where you can share your ideas about the Pikmin series! There's a lot to do around here, so we hope you'll stay and continue to edit the wiki. Please remember to sign in so you can edit and we can recognize you and your contributions. Before you begin editing, you should read Pikmin Fanon's policies and guidelines, and if you are new to wikis, check out the editing help page. The following links are to help familiarize you with some of the intricacies of our wiki. We hope you have a great time here and stay around for a while!


Useful links

Hey there! I've seen you been making a few constructive edits, and that's great! But you've also made some edits that may make some people unhappy. That's okay for now, though, since you're new here, and because the rules and guidelines and such haven't been updated for some time, so I'll give you a free pass on those. Based on your edits so far, I would assume that you wish to make your own version of Pikmin 4. Seeing as that title has already been taken, you may want to name your game Pikmin 4 (Salem version), or something to that effect. I would also recommend you create articles that have more information than a single sentence, or in the case of the Indigo Pikmin article, a single infobox. If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact me to let me know--I'll be happy to help! That's all I had to say for now. Welcome to the Pikmin Fanon, and have a wonderful day. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

New enemies

Hey, I'll keep fixing up the enemy pictures and icons you upload as well as the articles you make so long as you'll keep them coming. Some of those enemy concepts seem like they could be pretty awesome. Sorry if it's gotten annoying, I just want to make the images not take up as much space as they have been (as well as making the icons consistent), and I want the articles to have at least some information in them. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

You can edit your user page like it were any other article, by using the "edit" function. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Edit: Ohhh, I see what you were trying to do. Yeah, you don't have to dress up your user page like I have. You can type a little bit about yourself, but don't include any personal information like your age or your location. You can also talk about your favorite Pikmin type, your favorite enemy or boss, your favorite character, your favorite games or music, your fanon game, or so on. You don't have to talk about those things on your user page if you don't want to, of course, I'm just giving you some ideas. You can also include some userboxes if you want to personalize your page a little more. Just be sure to contain them in the {{userboxtop}} and {{userboxbottom}} templates so your userboxes aren't all over the place. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:Game Flaw

Yeah, sorry about that. With the Frigid Bulblax being a boss, I figured the page should have more detail than what was there already. I assumed the boss was large, judging by its carry weight of eighteen, so I thought Yellow Pikmin or a similar Pikmin would be necessary to hit its eyes. But now that I know that I know it is in your game and that Yellow Pikmin wouldn't have been discovered yet, there's no point in that information. It may help to create a page for your game so people can know more about it. Oh, and be sure to use the "show preview" button next to the "save changes" button so you don't make several changes to a page at once. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:Profile Professional

Your profile page doesn't have to be anything special. A profile can be as barebones as a single sentence about the user it belongs to. I explained this in a bit more detail in the message above the "game flaw" section, I just don't feel like typing everything out again. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Please learn to start using the "show preview" button when editing. You're flooding the recent changes page with dozens of small changes. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re: I'm on the floor wasting away

Sorry, I decided to take a short break from the Fanon for a few days to do other things. I'll be back to it before you know it. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Helpful tool

Hello. While editing, I suggest using the "show preview" button at the bottom of the page. This allows you to see how your page will look before you save it. That way, if you need to add more or make alternate changes, it can be done without saving. This has been mentioned before. It helps manage changes better in page histories, and also helps server data space. Thanks! Trig - 05:23, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Re:Did what you asked

Thank you! Now you can see how useful a tool "show preview" can be. The Jellyborb does look interesting, mind detailing it more so readers can know what it does? ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Information orange.png This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior. Salem, please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked.

I let it slide when you deleted messages from Sapphire7's talk page because the messages were so minor, but now that you went into my talk page and deleted my response to your message (for the second time), I have to take action. If you delete this warning, I'll give you a second warning, and if you delete that warning, I'll block you from editing for a week. Deleting warnings is against the rules, anyhow. Do not delete messages from your own talk page, and especially someone else's talk page.

As for your Raisin Breadbug idea, I'll think about it. I'm not exactly working on Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs anymore, though. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Look at this

Hey what do u think about this picture I drew ~ Salem

Zombmin wave 1.png

I think it looks awesome! Zombies are really cool. It may or may not be a bit too graphic for some people, though, so don't be surprised if another staff member says something to you about it. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:8 minute race

You do know you can't expect a single person to look after each and every one of your articles, right? Especially me, since there's so much to fix already on the wiki. Sorry. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

That's still very demanding. Many of the pages you created could use much more detail, as they have either one sentence or no sentences at all. Information that is present outside of infoboxes is often lacking in important details. Also, please remember to sign your messages with ~~~~. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Show preview

Just giving you a friendly reminder to use the "show preview" button while editing your work, so you can fix any mistakes you've made in your writing and not flood the recent changes page doing so. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:Where am I...

Welcome back! ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but please start using the "show preview" button while editing. It helps reduce edit spam, and it's overall superior to just saving changes, editing, saving changes, editing, and so on. You're not in trouble, this is just a friendly reminder to use the editing tools provided to you. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Return of The King

Wraith is back! He's returned! He's even made multiple edits! I'm Cyan piklord 64 icon.pngCyan piklord 64, and I like the Foundation Dweevil!

C'mon, I'm like a prince at best. ;) Hey Salem, I'm Wraith! Nice to meet you! WraithWraith icon.pngAdmin, Bureaucrat 18:15, 22 June 2021 (UTC)

Nice to Meet you

Nice to meet you Wraith I’m Salem ~ Salem

Raisin Breadbug

I finally wrote its article! Check it out! Thought it might make your day. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

High Noon

Wait what? Why is the Drawing Contest being deleted? Cheepy himself stated that it was pretty much fine if other people's art was done as well at a later time and if it was moved to the "topic" namespace, I just asked Wraith and he likes the idea, and I would absolutely love to participate! Basically the only problem is that basically nobody is active, and even then Wraith is working on that problem right now as it is a problem for the continued use of the entire site! I'm certain that people would love this contest, so please reconsider your decision. I'm Cyan piklord 64 icon.pngCyan piklord 64, and I like the Foundation Dweevil!


I’m sorry if it was deleted it’s just because nobody was participating and I had to shut it down I know you’re sad cyan piklord it’s just I dunno how to say this maybe because it’s getting slow here at the pikmin fanon ~ Salem

Actually it wasn't deleted it was just moved into "topic" :) . I hope to be able to participate soon! I'm Cyan piklord 64 icon.pngCyan piklord 64, and I like the Foundation Dweevil!

Yes, I did make it into a forum topic. And to reiterate, Salem, I do feel bad about how rude I was in my first comment, and your contest is by all means perfectly allowed. Activity on the wiki ground to a halt because of school coming back and people realizing just how much work must be put into developing a fanon game. Even my incessant editing of others' works is probably another reason for it, haha. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Final bosses

Not sure if you noticed this yourself or if this was intentional, but Pikmin 5: Adventure Awaits has two final bosses, the Dark Wraith and Mecha-Louie. Figured I'd check in to see what was up. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:Have You Seen This Man

I've just been taking a little break from the wiki is all. It'll probably be month-long. I have other things and projects I want to focus on currently, but the biggest reason I'm taking a break is that I fell into the mindset of "needing" to work on the Pikmin Fanon rather than "wanting" to. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:It’s been a while

Welcome back! ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 


OH MY GOD SALEM, that's so nice of you! I never expected this! It really is cool of you that you'd take time out of your day, or more likely at least two, to draw this for me, completely unprompted and without me asking you! Thank you so, so much. You have really outdone yourself on this one. Thank you. I'm Cyan piklord 64 icon.pngCyan piklord 64, and I like the Foundation Dweevil!

Frigid Bulblax

Hello Salem, I just wanted to let you know we typically don't upload files to the wiki unless we have a page that features them, so I would suggest putting it on the Frigid Bulblax page. Thanks! WraithWraith icon.pngAdmin, Bureaucrat 14:33, 9 December 2021 (UTC)This actually doesn't apply, I was in error. You actually can upload unused files. Nevermind. WraithWraith icon.pngAdmin, Bureaucrat 15:53, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

Re:A Long Long Long Reeeeaaaaaallllly long break

Sounds good, Salem. Take care! ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Green Slime

You could've kept it as part of the slime family in your game, I just categorized it as an enemy with no known family because I didn't feel like making a family category I thought wouldn't get much use. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy
