Hey, Username!

Hello, Username, 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

Welcome to the Pikmin Fanon! From seeing your activity on Pikipedia, I know you are familiar with MediaWiki whatnots, so I won't bother you much. I will say, however, that you should make use of the "show preview" button at the bottom of the editing window to check your edits before saving them and avoid filling the recent changes page. Happy editing! ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Also, thank you for updating and prettying up our more important pages. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

No problem! But, why are there so many technical difficulties here? Username (talk) 05:20, 15 February 2022 (UTC)
The Pikmin Fanon isn't as updated as Pikcord, but it works well enough I suppose. Our policy and guidelines pages overall haven't been changed in a long time, and broken links are common because of an effort to clean up the wiki after over ten years of not keeping things proper and organized. Though if you were referring to whatever was happening last night around the time I welcomed you, then I assume someone was playing with code somewhere outside of the wiki. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
I guess you're right. And besides that, how can I become an administrator? (Just curious.) Username (talk) 05:37, 16 February 2022 (UTC)
You can become an administrator by proving you're trustworthy and continually making constructive edits. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
Oh and may I ask if you can implement the HotCat gadget here. That’d be an easier tool to use to work with Categories, thanks! Username (talk) 20:16, 16 February 2022 (UTC)
I've actually been wanting that added to the wiki. I would have added it myself but I'm not one to play with the site's code. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
Oh, and by the way, everytime I edit, the editing toolbox doesn't appear. That normal? Username 05:57, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
You mean the assortment of neat little icons that used to be above the editing window? I'm not sure when or why those disappeared, but I know for certain we used to have them. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
Yes. Can you restore it somehow please? Also, I’m not autoconfirmed for some reason... Username 01:09, 18 February 2022 (UTC)
I would if I knew how. Maybe then I could get some actual use out of it. And I'm pretty sure autoconfirmination is an automatic process handled by the wiki, I just don't know how long it takes to kick in. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
Nevermind, I'm autoconfirmed. I guess you're supposed to maintain your account for 4 days with at least 50 edits or more. Man, I'm just glad I can bypass the CAPTCHA. Username 04:13, 19 February 2022 (UTC)
I'm trustworthy and continually making constructive edits. Username (talk) 17:26, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
I see that. But we don't need any more staff at the moment, and you're still a relatively new member of the Pikmin Fanon. It took a long time for me to become a staff member myself if that means anything. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

About some things

I see you've been editing some pages beyond those on wiki structure, and that's fine. So far, however, they've been so-so in that some have been good and some have been less than that. I undid your final improvements to the Queen Octifang article because, well, they weren't improvements, especially not the removal of the info infobox at the top of the page and the other important aspects of the new structure most articles will have. Additionally, I reverted your edits to the user userbox because there was no need to change it. If you would like to create a new userbox, copy and paste the coding from another userbox and create a new userbox template. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Oh, and about [[PikminFanon:Why create an account?|this page]], anonymous users can not make edits. That was a change made intentionally, to prevent them from editing the wiki in preparation for it closing down a year or so ago. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Will anonymous users ever edit again? Username 19:16, 19 February 2022 (UTC)
I'm unsure. It hasn't yet come up as a conversation topic for anyone until now. It shouldn't matter anyway since if someone wants to edit that badly they can just make an account. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
That's for sure, it would be easier and safer if it stays this way. All users would have an account attributed to their username instead of their IP. Username (talk) 18:06, 30 April 2022 (UTC)


To whom is "PK" Pikipedia's preferred abbreviation? And I didn't delete it, I just reverted it back to its original name. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:New redirect?

You have my approval. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Thanks! Username 12:45, February 21, 2022‎ (UTC)


I did! At least, I noticed there are now periods instead of spaces between a page name, character value, and editor. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

If you edit on Wikipedia, this is what the Recent Change page looks like as well. Username (talk) 03:23, 4 March 2022 (UTC)

Hey username. Do you like my idea for Pikmin: the final stretch?

I really like the idea of taking down the wraith, saving louie, gather materials for koppaite homes. Do you too? – Preceding unsigned comment added by BreadbugsRgodly (talkcontribs)

Yo man.

Ahoy! What would you like to know? ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Which deletion? Or do you mean article and file deletion in general? ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
Yes. Username (talk)
Ask me what you'd like to know, then. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
I'm not sure, perhaps you could use a website or something. Personally, I always assume real-world images to be copyright violations. "Housekeeping" refers to keeping a home, or anywhere, really, tidy and organized. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy .
Maintenance, essentially. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Re:Question #?

Your Discord account was compromised because you fell for a phishing scam. I banned your account from the server until you regain control of your account, to protect the server. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 

Sorry that it took so long to get back to you, I'd settled down into bed before you responded. Are you absolutely certain you regained control of your account, and that nobody else has access to it? ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 
Alright, I'll unban you, then. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy 


I noticed you deleted Help:Preferences. Is there a better reason than "superseded by Mediawiki:Help:Preferences"? We ought to update the article for sure, but delete it? Not so sure. WraithWraith icon.pngAdmin, Bureaucrat 17:09, 28 May 2022 (UTC)


No, areas can have key sections. Caves, towers, and dungeons are places that are accessed from within the area itself. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy  19:47, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

Okay, thank you for clarifying. – Username(talk) 19:50, 11 June 2022 (UTC)
You're welcome. Remember that the guidelines are always available to refer to if you need them. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy  19:59, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

Re:About the new registered user...

Ah, I see. You could've just sent me a direct message about it on Discord, you know. ~ ContributionsCheepy-Cheepy  20:14, 22 June 2022 (UTC)

Oh, right... – Username(talk) 20:15, 22 June 2022 (UTC)
