Editing

I can't edit the main page??
kHacker35000vr 12:10, 8 October 2011 (CEST)

I changed the protection because to many Bots changed the Main Page and to many People didnt added their News into the "All News". Just post your News on the "All News" page and the Admins/Mods will post it on the Main Page.
Tock 15:46, 8 October 2011 (CEST)

Page Locked?!

For what reason was the front page locked? These was no reason as far as I know, It needs to be un-locked. On occasion someone might make a new tutorial, or need to fix a typo/add something, and I'd rather not ask a moderator every time I need something edited, I request that the front page is unlocked.

-SuperMario64DS

Spamming reasons (include news that aren't one) Hanno 07:10, 20 October 2011 (CEST)
Maybe every 1 out of 30 end up being spam. Why don't we make the news it's own template so that people who are new won't know how to access the template, and so the main page can remain un-locked. I still request that the main page be un-locked.
-SuperMario64DS
I think the front page should remain protected. Since I've been here, it's gotten defaced a few times. It's an easy target for trolls and spammers. And it doesn't take long for search engines to grab bad versions of the front page, with tennis shoe ads and whatnot. However, I do agree on the template idea. The front page will no longer need to be edited for basic track news updates. --Jefe 07:47, 20 October 2011 (CEST)
You mean something like {{main-news}} (I like this idea)
Hanno 07:49, 20 October 2011 (CEST)
Yes, just like that. I'd like to edit the front page, I'd like to re-add the MK GP page, because I've been working on GP Mario Beach from scratch and it's looking like the real thing. I'd like the template to be made, and the front page un-locked.
-SuperMario64DS
You'll find an adequate explanation from Tock just above. He also included his reason when he locked it, check the history page. Regarding the GP page, Vulcanus2 deleted it for a very good reason - there are no finished GP tracks and the page had been idle since May. Add the page back when your track is complete, but not till then. --Jefe 08:32, 20 October 2011 (CEST)
I allready wanted to do something similiar but i dont know how. I wanted to include the News from "All News" as a template but it should only show up like 5-7 News. When anyone know how to do this i would be glad to include it :P
Tock 14:02, 20 October 2011 (CEST)
I have created a news template using Hannos link. Perhaps it can be improved later. For the moment it is the best fast solution.
But I have some notes against automatically inclusion of the news archive:
  • There are rarely non distribution news (like a progress notice), that should not appear in the main page.
  • The length of the news are different. For visual aspects it is better a human decides the number of news.
  • If an update of anything comes out a view days after, I removed the previous news independent of the date. I think, the main page should only held one news for each topic, but never more.

Youtube box

We currenly have 2 youtube box templates:

Video

Template:Youtube Can't we stick to one of then? I don't think anyone likes having two different youtube embed boxes. I think we should only use the youtube-box one, since it looks prettier.
Igorseabra4 17:47, 14 May 2011 (CEST)

I changed the "youtube" template so it has the same layout, and it has support for a description below it. All features of the "youtube-box" are now also in "youtube", the align option doesn't work anymore.
Vulcanus2 12:22, 25 May 2011 (CEST)

Site description

It might be nice to include a description of the site and what's in it for first time visitors on the main page.

Tock has disabled editing of the main page. Now I have enabled editing for logged in users (hope that Tock will agree). Feel free to edit.
BTW: I ask Tock for admin rights for cleanups and some other can do ask too.
Wiimm 22:19, 16 March 2011 (CET)
We can edit the main page now? I can see alot changes now :p It's better this way
kHacker35000vr 07:50, 17 March 2011 (CET)
Can't he make a rank or something between admin and registered user, so not everybody can register and than change.
Vulcanus2 17:13, 17 March 2011 (CET)
That is exactly what I mean with "logged in users" == already done!
Wiimm 18:11, 17 March 2011 (CET)

Layout

@forum message: they weren't bold when I did the change :P, but I see you changed the css.
Vulcanus2 0:37, 18 March 2011 (CET)

Why there are 2 similar but different track info boxes?

I think we should only have one.
Here is a textbox discussion: Template talk:Textbox
Wiimm 10:31, 19 March 2011 (CET)
Why do the left boxes keep getting smaller --Vulcanus2 21:03, 23 March 2011 (CET)
Do you mean the main page? It's browser dependent.
Do you mean other pages: I need an example or link?
Wiimm 21:13, 23 March 2011 (CET)
Main page, damn update of chrome. --Vulcanus2 14:39, 24 March 2011 (CET)
If have set min-width: http://de.selfhtml.org/css/eigenschaften/positionierung.htm#min_width (german)
I thought only IE 6 can't handle it, but others have problems too. I'll search for a solution.
Wiimm 16:12, 24 March 2011 (CET)

Graphic Formats

Missing SVG. Will import some wikpedia grapics. Hanno 07:33, 23 March 2011 (CET)

Some things are a huge mess

Wimm, for example, sometimes write wrong track names in his distribution lists, people write many names for the same person (such as Cagnouto and Teknik, or Guil who has 4 names).

And we have some stuff such as Warios Lair and Daisys Garden. I didn't knew that there were many Warios and Daisys around. I thought that those tracks were Wario's and Daisy's, but it looks like there are many of then

For my part I know the reasons very well:
I started to collect CT in February 2010. I have different sources in the internet. I Always store names like "ct name RC9 (author) [my comments].szs". All secondary infos (also the wiki track lists) are developed by using this naming (I'm a script king). Because of different sources I found different names and authors of the same tracks and some of them are wrong. In october I found mariokartwii.com and since then I fix the names.
In december 2010 I developed my first public CT distribution. I decided to insert the authors names as part of the track names. Because of spacing problems (in szs and while printing) I have to shorten the names. One way was to remove the trailing numbers and some other pre- and postfixes because they are not needed to identify the authors.
Now we have the this wiki and it will help me and others to have unique names for tracks and authors. See it as slow progress. I will rename my files every time I found a (confirmed) mistake.
Wiimm 18:56, 27 March 2011 (CEST)
Why do I get credits for a course I've never heard of before? It's megaworld.
kHacker35000vr 19:35, 27 March 2011 (CEST)
I got the info from here: http://www.mariokartwii.com/f72/course-slots-special-features-71102.html Wiimm 19:42, 27 March 2011 (CEST)
Teknik likes getting other people's courses, modifying almost nothing in then (or sometimes even nothing), renaming then and calling then his (hers?). Other people then think that those mods were made by the original track authors. I personally hate this, and I think you and the other track creators do too. Igorseabra4 01:12, 28 March 2011 (CEST)

Users and Authors

We should distinguish between authors and wiki users.

  • Authors should have pages in the normal namespace (e.g. page "xyz" for Author "xyz").
  • Wiki users have pages un the user namespace (e.g. page "user:xyz" for user "xyz").
  • Authors that are also wiki user should/may set a redirect from the authors page to the user page.
  • Author links in all articles are made by using [[xyz]] and not using [[user:xyz|xyz]]
  • Author pages should be in category "Author".

Hanno 10:34, 31 March 2011 (CEST)

Not really
Yes
Yes
Not needed
There's already a userlist

Custom track texture hacks

We don't need to have a page for texture hacked custom tracks and a list of texture hacked custom tracks. We can have those as sections inside each track's page. Igorseabra4 18:40, 6 April 2011 (CEST)

I already deleted some stuff of it and I was also thinking about deleting it
Completly pointless to make texturehack pages, they can be posted at the course page in the Filesystem
kHacker35000vr 18:43, 6 April 2011 (CEST)
Well that is a bit too much
I was thinking about letting each texture hack have it's own page, since having a page for each original course page might make those too long
Igorseabra4 18:50, 6 April 2011 (CEST)
Wait, now that you said it, that might be the best choice...
Igorseabra4 18:55, 6 April 2011 (CEST)
It was only one noob who posted texture hacks, I won't allow anybody to add texture hacks to my pages
kHacker35000vr 19:08, 6 April 2011 (CEST)
There was someone posting texture hacks and modified versions of my CTs. I didn't bother removing them because I don't know if they're bugfixes or something.
Guilmon35249vr 02:01, 19 October 2011 (CEST)
My general view for all articles: Collect the info in one page if if the page grows, split the articles. One idea for texture hacks is to uses sub pages like I have done with my latest distribution: "GCN Bowser Castle/Texture Hacks"
On the other hand this wiki is very young. Give all a chance to insert their info. And in 1-2 month when we know mote about all the stuff we can reorganize thew wiki step by step.
Wiimm 20:39, 6 April 2011 (CEST)
So what should we do now? Move the texture hacks, keep then the way they are, keep then the way they are and change sometime later?
Igorseabra4 02:31, 7 April 2011 (CEST)

Rating Extension

From optical aspects I hate the extension: It looks bad. The layout is almost hardcoded and not css based (egg. width is directly in source) and therefor not modifiable. Did anyone vote?
Wiimm 09:17, 29 April 2011 (CEST)

The rating extension looks really bad, no css support planned. And the last update is 3 years ago. The rating extension is dead! (http://dev.openbig.net/release/)
I know! Now I have checked the sources and it seem easy to change it using css instead of hard coded values (means: better layout is possible). Tock must only replace 1 php file. Give me a view days.
Wiimm 16:37, 24 May 2011 (CEST)

New Style

What do you thing about this style: http://wiimm.de/rating
Wiimm 22:54, 24 May 2011 (CEST)

Good layout, I like the red one. But please use another font
kHacker35000vr 08:05, 25 May 2011 (CEST)
I haven't set any font param → the fonts will be the same as wiki standard.
Wiimm 16:24, 25 May 2011 (CEST)
It's really bad code. For editing+testing I must setup a test wiki first. I will do this not before the weekend.
Wiimm 22:13, 25 May 2011 (CEST)
The new rating style is online. Comments are disabled, because they don't work with the current MediaWiki version.
Wiimm 16:59, 1 June 2011 (CEST)

DPL Extension

Tock has removed the dpl extension because I have found a important security warning. It's no problem for this wiki because we have used this extension only on a few pages.
Wiimm 16:55, 7 June 2011 (CEST)

favicon.ico

Would it be possible to set the favicon.ico file to something. Having it blank doesn't look as nice.

Chadderz 09:14, 25 June 2011 (CEST)

New Layout

I have made a recommendation for a new layout on the sandbox page. With this new layout we have more space for the CT news.
Hanno 08:33, 17 October 2011 (CEST)

Thumps up! Tock?
Wiimm 22:28, 17 October 2011 (CEST)
The layout could be more logical. For example, remove the red @track authors box - the same article is listed in the template box. Changing some of the colors could help. Tutorials and templates should be a different color than the More Info and Track Listing boxes.--Jefe 00:39, 18 October 2011 (CEST)
I would also suggest changing to the title of "Custom/Texture Hacked Tracks" To "Track Directory," and moving the Custom Track Distributions and Texture Hack Distributions links to the top of that list, maybe in bold; this is where people should start. "More Info" should be something like "Reference" or "In-Depth Articles"... I can't think of a better name at the moment, but it's more descriptive than "More Info."--Jefe 00:48, 18 October 2011 (CEST)
I agree mostly.
@Jeffe: Edit the sandbox as example.
Hanno 06:28, 18 October 2011 (CEST)
I left it alone because I didn't want to overwrite your changes. But I'll do something with it later today.--Jefe 15:13, 18 October 2011 (CEST)


Unfinished Tracks

Do you think that the list of Unfinished Track should added here? LuigiM 00:07, 19 October 2011 (CEST)

Yep. --Jefe 07:47, 20 October 2011 (CEST)

Poll result

2011-11-14, Question was

Some retro tracks are ported by different persons. Most of the ports/variants have one page per port (like GCN Baby Park). On the other side it is also possible to create one page for all ports (like GCN Luigi Circuit).

2011-11-20, Answers
  • 1 page for each port: 31/85 = 36%
  • All ports on 1 page: 54/85 = 64%

It's a clear voting for combined pages.
Wiimm 16:08, 20 November 2011 (CET)

I personally don't like this idea very much. If I ever make a port, I'd like it to be it's own page. There's truly no reason for this to happen, as it is not needed. The GCN Page that shows all ported/non-ported tracks is okay. Plus, any random person could vote on the poll.

SuperMario64DS, 19:49, 20 November 2011 (CET)

I dont like the idea too. Some Ports with much informations should have their own Page but Ports with only the CT info box should be in one Page.
Tock 20:11, 20 November 2011 (CET)
All ports should be on own page in my opinion, not with too much info (only CT info box and video), and more info on a sub-page for each author.
Vulcanus2 20:33, 20 November 2011 (CET)
With this I mean a general page for the ported track like on GCN LC, without the CT distro info and poll, and than with the "by XXX" as link to a sub-page with more info (the author can fill that in). So this means we have actually both :P
Vulcanus2 21:11, 20 November 2011 (CET)
I prefer two separate pages with a disambiguation page listing each version. If anything to prevent edit wars or inadvertent deletion of info on the other track. Each port is different, and usually a lot of work is put into the port, so I think each should have its own page. --Jefe 20:36, 20 November 2011 (CET)


Mario Kart 7

Would it be possible to make custom tracks from mario kart 7? --Funkykong975 18:50, 4 January 2012 (CET)

As soon as a method to rip the models is found, yes. --Jefe 18:54, 4 January 2012 (CET)

List Of Custom Tracks Ported From Mario Kart 7?

Mario Kart 7 for Nintendo 3DS was just released in Japan on this date, and will be the 2nd for Europe, the 3rd for Australia, and the four for North America. I've heard both rumours of a Nintendo 3DS Emulator for Computers, and 3DS ROM decoders. With these, it could be possible to rip models from these game depending of the Model format it uses, and if this emulator will work with 3D Ripper DX. So, should we create a "List Of Custom Track Ported From Mario Kart 7"? Some courses that requires the use of a Hanglider can use a cannon, or a trick can be done. And then unerwater areas can simply have no collision when the water is touched, allowing you to pass through. And then courses that have only one lap, can have extended finish lines so you can go through it without multiple laps. If so, then the courses should be called, for example "3DS Mario Circuit" or "3DS Rainbow Road", instead of "7 Mario Circuit" or "7 Rainbow Road". Should the page be created?

-SuperMario64DS, 21:48, 1 December 2011 (CET)

No not yet, the emulators really don't exist yet, the available 3ds roms are very different or are just damaged in the process. Please wait a few months ;)
kHacker35000vr 21:51, 1 December 2011 (CET)
Wait until someone makes a MK7 course, then we can add a page for it.
--Guilmon35249vr 22:01, 1 December 2011 (CET)
Not needed until there are some tracks ported. There was the same exact discussion with you on the List of Tracks from Mario Kart Arcade GP, and we still don't have tracks from that game either.--Jefe 22:09, 1 December 2011 (CET)
Agree Guilmon & Jefe. And if the list with at least one track is available, one of the Mods will add a link to the main page.
Wiimm 22:12, 1 December 2011 (CET)

New Templates

I set up some new templates a while back. The Template:Misc-Info is an all-purpose replacement for Template:Custom-Track-Info to be used on custom tracks, character hacks and other downloads. It removes the Video field (videos should be in the media section of a page) adds a second DL field for a primary mirror, and fields for Release Date and Editors Used. The new template can be phased in gradually; unlike editing the Custom-Track template this breaks nothing. I've been using the new template for a while, you can see it on my track pages. If no one has any objections, I will update Help:Custom_Track and Template:Custom-Track to include the new format.

I also set up Template:Character-Hack and Help:Character_Hack. The help page should be linked on the main page in the Track Authors: Use these formats box (The title should probably be Adding a New Download? Use These Formats now.) I will also set up a template for fonts Template:Custom-Font which will need to be added as well.--Jefe 18:49, 2 December 2011 (CET)

What happened to Template:CustomTrack? I went to my userpage and all of my track info is missing because this template was deleted. --Guilmon35249vr 19:04, 24 January 2012 (CET)
Sorry, I thought it was an unused template. Tock restored it.--Jefe 03:52, 25 January 2012 (CET)

Playing Custom Tracks

I have completed modeling for my track, but i can't play it. how do i play my track on CTGP Revolution?

--User:Pokemongeof\Pokemongeof 10:57, 21 December 2011 (CET)

About videos for tracks

I thing we should limit the videos for a track. There are some tracks with up to 5 vidoes, that's definitely to much.

Each major version of a track may have 1 or 2 videos
  1. The first video shall show the track including camera setups. It can be done via offline versus or time trial or a mix of both ( like my video on Unnamed Valley). Some simple video comments are good for this kind of video.
  2. A second video is allowed if it shows an online race with at least 6 players. The only reason for this kind of video is to animate others to play online. In my opinion this is the main goal of custom tracks: To have online fun with other players.

All video should have a normed titles without "made by", e.g. "Track Presentation" and "Playing Online"
Wiimm 21:20, 26 December 2011 (CET)

I have to agree with this. And requesting changes to them should be done on the talk pages, so that people can deside if the new video is better than the old one (although if the track's updated, then the newer one should replace the older video.) - Ah2190, the Master of Nitrous, (Talk page) posted at 00:10, 27 December 2011 (CET)
I agree Wiimm and Ah2190. But I think that videos who shows bugs must also allowed as third video until the bug is fixed. And if there are more videos, they can be added to a special video page "Track Name/Videos". This makes the main article clean and gives a chance for more videos.
Hanno 09:28, 27 December 2011 (CET)
That's a good point, Hanno. Bugs should be highlighted as known (through the media of video) so that others that find the bug know that it's been found beforehand. Plus, having a video page for tracks with loads of videos is a good idea - that way, submissions for videos can be made there, and that talk page (for example, "Talk:Track Name/Videos") should have the discussion on which two (or three) videos should be included on the main page. - Ah2190, the Master of Nitrous, (Talk page) posted at 17:34, 27 December 2011 (CET)
My Recommendations
  • The primary video should be made in VS, Grand Prix or Online mode. It should be "live play" or a replay of GP mode to show replay cameras. It should feature the most recent major revision of the level.
  • Secondary videos are permissible but should show a different play mode or an older major revision of the level.
  • If the track is a port or remake, a video of the original version is permissible.
  • Time Trials should not be used for the primary video or replay video. The opening camera pans, item box placement and enemy kart behavior are all important aspects of a level and do not show up in Time Trials.
  • Pages shouldn't be updated just to add BKTs (Best Known Times) and WRs (World Record) videos.
  • No more than 3 embedded videos on any custom track page. Tutorials and Distributions are exceptions.
  • Videos of glitches and additional videos should be linked to like this rather than embedded on the page. Glitch videos should be added to a section of the page describing the glitch, like this.
  • The "Track Name/Videos" option can be used, but really should be used for distributions only. Videos of all the tracks in a distribution should link to a playlist on the main page or use plain links to each video rather than embedding 20+ videos on a page.
  • The youtube-box template ( {{youtube-box|blue left|YoutubeID|Title}} ) should be used instead of the youtube template. The titles look better in youtube-box.
  • Video titles should be kept simple. v1.0 (Online Play), v1.0 (Replay Cameras), etc. The title should not include the name of the video author, date recorded, etc.

--Jefe 18:22, 28 December 2011 (CET)

I follow Jefes recommendations and we should write concrete rules! (perhaps not so long so that all player read them).
@Tock: What do you think?
Wiimm 23:40, 7 January 2012 (CET)
I think it would be best if the rules simply stated: No more than 3 videos on a CT page. Only 1 video on Character and Texture Hack pages. (See the Style page for more info.) The specific recommendations as written here could go on a style page that would cover formatting in general. The rules could link to the style page and so would the "Track Authors: Use these formats" box on the front page. (Which still needs to be updated to include the newest templates for character hacks and texture hacks. I don't have the ability to edit the front page.)--Jefe 18:24, 8 January 2012 (CET)

Help

I can't play my custom track on CTGP Revolution. I realize it's because i put my track on kartwood creek. Is there anyway i can transfer all my work to a regular track so i can play it? Plus, is there any way i can play my track if it is copied over a custom track?- Pokemongeof

New poll template?

Would it be possible to add a poll template like this to the site: http://www.mariowiki.com/Template:Poll ? We could have polls like "Do you want the layout to be XXX or XXX?" or things like "Which Rainbow Road Music should this course use?: SNES Rainbow Road, N64 Rainbow Road, GBA Rainbow Road..." or even "What needs to be improved on this course?: A: New Textures, B: KMP Improving C: Better Model..." Like that. It could be useful, rather than using the rating template for polls. Can we? -- SuperMario64DS, 22:01, 2 January 2012 (CET)

You know there is a way to see which mods that have already seen this post, right? Please answer. There is no reason not to, I have cookies. Internet Cookies, you can login to all of my accounts if I give you my cookies. But I'd rather have an answer instead, this could be very useful. SuperMario64DS, 06:41, 3 January 2012 (CET)~
Do you want a new template? Create one.
Do you want an wiki extension? Show us the source page and the description.

I have done the same with the rating, you can search the template on mediawiki.
kHacker35000vr 10:40, 3 January 2012 (CET)
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:PollDaddy . That's the one they seem to use. All you have to do is to use some "Poll Daddy" poll creator, and it will give you an ID. And then on your page you add the code, and replace "12345" with your Poll ID. -- SuperMario64DS, 16:18, 3 January 2012 (CET)
Ummm, so can this extension be added? I'd like to use it for a few things, it add the ability to add Polls generated with a site called www.polldaddy.com to this site. Can it??? I understand only a few people are permitted to do so. -- SuperMario64DS, 20:05, 4 January 2012 (CET)
Uhhg, nevermind. Why must we pay for everything these days? Poll Daddy costs too. 0.0 Why not try this one? http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Poll . I Will still wait for a reply... -- SuperMario64DS, 20:12, 4 January 2012 (CET)
Only Tock can install extensions. Wiimm 23:36, 10 January 2012 (CET)

Well I was kind of hoping for him to reply as well... Unless there is a price, there's no reason not to have Polls/HTML Extensions Enabled -- SuperMario64DS, 00:25, 11 January 2012 (CET)

HTML Extension

Well, since my Poll Idea went ignored, could we add an HTML Extension Instead? Ther are multiple ways to conduct polls with HTML and CSS, could both be added? Pages could also be made custom, like with Custom Backgrounds or fonts, and I know HTML and CSS too. There are multiple extensions for this, so any could be choosen if this is added. -- SuperMario64DS, 19:59, 10 January 2012 (CET)

SOPA

Are you guys going to protect this website from SOPA?!?!? Check it out they are messing with google, wikipedia, and many others. What are you going to do? -Pokemongeof

They won't know about us yet. We don't have much time, this is a Serious Issue, SMG2.5 has been getting threatening things already, and we've committed no Piracy. Tock, this is serious. They've started shutting down Sites that distribute Files from Games/Pirated Software/ECT. Places like Sonic Retro are also at risk, and we are too. They may think our own custom (Non-pirated) SZS files are stolen from the game, and we're done for. Tock, is there any way to back up the Wiki??? WEBSITES are shutting down and we're at risk here. -- SuperMario64DS, 18:40, 18 January 2012 (CET)
This wiki is a german site, so SOPA will only affect visitors from the USA, it's not that they can take a site down from another country, only block it in the USA.

Many other sites are down at the moment because they WANT to protest against SOPA. SOPA is NO law at the moment and i guess never will be because the USA needs the money from Google and Wikipedia. And like Vulcanus said this is a german Website which means they can only block US people from this wiki with a DNS Changer.

The problem is, SOPA and PIPA can cause webhosters to be responsible for all content they host, not just the people who post it. So webhosters would try and stop them from being liable by taking down the content that may fall fowl of SOPA and/or PIPA. Plus, if they get passed, then who knows what other countries will jump onto the bandwagon and push through their own versions? - Ah2190, the Master of Nitrous, (Talk page) posted at 21:36, 18 January 2012 (CET)
Well why not try to ge rid of anything that may make them want to block this site from US Visitors? That would mean that I (And many others) can no longer visit the Wiiki if the law is passed. Lots of us come from the US, although I wish now that I lived back in the UK Again. We can just hope that this stupid bill is not passed, or that this site won't be seen as a threat. Eh, either way, I'll be moving to Russia next year. Hopefully there will be no bill, and this site will not be classified as a threat. It's just soooo stupid... This is truly starting to become the worst place that I have ever lived in. -- SuperMario64DS, 23:11, 18 January 2012 (CET)

Custom Track Help

Could someone help me finish my first custom track?

-Pokemongeof

Hello Pokemongeof, i want to help you with your custom track.--Funkykong975 08:19, 26 February 2012 (CET)

Common.szs modifications

I made a page for a list of Common.szs modifications here. Not only should be linked somewhere useful, but other people should be adding their modifications to it.
--Digital Monster, Guilmon35249vr 06:48, 30 January 2012 (CET)

Added to the front page. It's probably a good idea to make a footer template for the various Misc. Hacks pages too.--Jefe 09:11, 30 January 2012 (CET)

Special texture collection pages

I have moved this discussion to the example page: Talk:Luigi Circuit (texture hacks)

Aquatropolis ?

Where is the download of Aquatropolis ? --Beredezebe 21:27, 14 February 2012 (CET)

What do we need templates for?

Things like custom characters and vehicles don't use their own template (and therefore have an unneeded 'Difficulty' row). Things like these and custom fonts should probably have their own template (since even Misc-Info has a Difficulty row).

A 'List of Custom Videos' page?

Because there are several tutorials about how to make custom THPs, and I have a couple THPs that I would like to contribute, should a page devoted to these videos be made? --Digital Monster, Guilmon35249vr 18:39, 24 February 2012 (CET)

SQL Error

The "Recent Pages" link is dead, and it gives me this error:
Database error
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "SpecialRecentChanges::doMainQuery". Database returned error "1030: Got error 28 from storage engine (localhost)".

It was fixed while I was writing this, but does anyone know what caused it? --Digital Monster, Guilmon35249vr 12:44, 12 March 2012 (CET)

I noticed this too. I am not experienced about HTML/servers or anything like this but I think it is caused because of the server the wiki is hosted... On Skype I remember Tock wanting to change the server for some reason, I am not sure though... -- MrSkopelos27 13:12, 12 March 2012

Wiki question

I'd want to create a wiki with mediawiki. I created the site, but I don't know how to host it.
Can anyone tell it me? Can the creator of the site answer this question? Thanks. --HackSizer 20:56, 12 March 2012 (CET)
