Original Custom Track Sub-sections

I don't know where to post this, so I decided to put this in a place where mods would look.

I think that the Custom Track page should have different tables which define the type of track environment it has. For example, you will have a list of city tracks, jungle tracks, mountain tracks, raceway tracks, etc. It would be much more organized and it would be easier to find tracks this way. Is it okay if I do that? --Quajeek99 (talk) 18:28, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Why limit tracks to generic types and categorize them? I see no reason to do this. --Torran (talk) 19:03, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Custom Track Music File Details

Perhaps with the Custom Track details listed on each track's page, why not have a section that lists what music file it uses, and have a page that shows tracks that use a certain music file to make music editing a bit easier for people? --Supershadow64ds (talk) 03:56, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

This information would normally fall under the Download section, however most CT creators will decide to bundle their brstm's with their CT's in a zip archive, which is an awful idea really. Having this section be mandatory across all pages is probably unnecessary. --Torran (talk) 04:01, 5 June 2014 (UTC)


Battle Arena Custom Tracks

Hello,I created a new category named Battle Arena Custom Tracks.I hope someone can add it to the main page.The concept of the new category is that everybody can transformate a Battle Track into a Custom Track.Tomorrow I'll release a video with the DS Twilight House. --Mkwjason (talk) 15:02, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Front Page Custom AND Texture Distributions?

Before you say that my distribution should not receive any special attention, allow me to explain myself. My MKW Hack Pack distribution, which is to be released sometime in 2015, will be the ONLY distribution (that I know of, feel free to contest that) that will feature both Custom Tracks and Texture Hacked Tracks in them. However, if I'm wrong and mine isn't the only one out there, I still feel that this will benefit those who's distributions fall under this category. Also, I haven't created the section yet, because the nature of this request is something brand new, never done before. So I shall wait for your consent or disapproval. ~Thank you for your consideration Huili (talk) 17:24, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Unsigned comment template

Would this work?

--''Unsigned comment by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]]).''

--CT creator Emer, (talk here) 11:20, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

I've updated your template so it is easier to write, just put {{Sig|Name}} after unsigned comments. --Jefe (talk) 02:42, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Naming of the 2 Wikis

We had an discussion about the titles of the 2 titles. My proposal is now:

  • »Custom Mario Kart Wiiki« or short »CT-Wiiki« for this wiki (like before)
  • »Custom MK8 Wiiki« or short »MK8-Wiiki« for the new one.

I'm not sure about the hyphens in ths short names.

Wiimm (talk) 22:38, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Well I would actually say lets change it "completly" so even when we extent it to other/future consoles (MK7 someday maybe). For reference: »Custom MKWii Wiki«. Of course this would result in some Logo work.
Tock (talk) 18:18, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
I've always thought of it as the "Custom Mario Kart Wiki," with the Wii worked in to the word wiki to save space. But yeah, referring to this one the "CT Wiki" is problematic. I think the full name can stay "Custom Mario Kart Wiiki," and we can use "MKWiiki" or "MKWii Wiki" for the short version.
As for the logo, I can work in the Wii logo into the "Wiiki" part, it would help explain the name that way. The other one can be the "Custom Mario Kart 8 Wiki." with the 8 logo overlaying the words "Custom Mario Kart Wiki" similar to how it is now.--Jefe (talk) 20:14, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki a.pngWiki b.png

I couldn't think of a good way to put Wii and wiki together that looked good. I still might try though. For consistency, I might take off the 'wiki' off the mk8 version. Thoughts on these two? --Jefe (talk) 10:40, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

I like the new logos, but let us consider: We have:
  • "Custom Mario Kart Wii Wiki" ⇒ "Custom Mario Kart Wiiki" with theme "Custom Mario Kart Wii"
  • "Custom Mario Kart 8 Wiki" with theme "Custom Mario Kart 8"
@Jefe: The left logo is the MKWii-theme and the right the MK8-Wiki.
Wiimm (talk) 11:08, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki c.png

Found a Wii font. Yes, the logo with the blue 8 is the MK8 wiki logo. Adding 8 to the text would be redundant, since the blue logo is an 8. --Jefe (talk) 11:17, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki d.png

One more variation of the Wii version with different spacing between the letters. --Jefe (talk) 11:25, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
My favourites are: Wiki c.png Wiki b.png
Wiimm (talk) 11:37, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
But I like also the yellow of Mk8wiikitest5.png
Wiimm (talk) 11:41, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki e.pngWiki f.pngWiki g.png

Without the word 'wiki' and with two versions with yellow-gold instead of copper.--Jefe (talk) 12:02, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

I prefer image "g" (the right one). And now other people with an opinion are expected. -- Wiimm (talk) 13:17, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki h.pngWiki i.pngWiki j.pngWiki k.pngWiki l.png

I decided to redo the blue 8 in my photoshop file so it would be hi-res, making it usable for other purposes, like youtube videos. So I reuploaded the previous versions with the blue 8, and did a few more variations of it. This should be enough to choose from. Of course I can also apply any color scheme to the Wii version. I went with intense red to match the old logo.--Jefe (talk) 17:15, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki m.pngWiki n.pngWiki o.png

That's it, unless someone has a specific request. My personal preferences are "o" for the Wiiki, and "l" for the MK8 wiki, with "m" and "b" and "g" as my alternates. Also, I uploaded hi res versions of image l and image o. --Jefe (talk) 17:39, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
The only problems I have with the Logos is that the "wiiki" spacing is a bit too narrow for my taste and the "Wiki" being too squeezed. Besides those little complaints I also like the l and o style versions.
Tock (talk) 19:03, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

I can do some resizing, but I'll also need to change the proportions/size of "Custom Mario Kart" so everything will fit in the blue 8. Did you prefer the look of "wiiki" in image c?--Jefe (talk) 20:49, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

You probably mean d? Yeah that spacing is too big^^. Like I said o would just need a small amount of bigger spacing.
Tock (talk) 21:15, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki p.pngWiki q.png

Yeah, I should have minded my p's and q's there (groan.)

Here's p and q. Now that I've uploaded it, the spacing on Wiiki doesn't look that different, but I did increase it ;) For the word "wiki" I could go with a different font or resize it some more if you'd prefer Wiiki and Wiki to be about the same size. I think they should look somewhat similar.--Jefe (talk) 21:38, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

The last 2 ones are the best, but I'm sure, you will improve it (have seen the uploads in the log ;) -- Wiimm (talk) 13:02, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki r.pngWiki s.png

I had another idea. Both logos now use the "Wii" font for the word Wiki, but the MKWii version has Wii in a different color. I also changed the style of "Wii" and "Wiki" so I could use the "Wii" blue, which didn't work well with the bronze outline.--Jefe (talk) 13:05, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki t.pngWiki u.png

Same, but with "Wiki" in bronze. --Jefe (talk) 13:56, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiki v.png

Last one.--Jefe (talk) 14:04, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

I have activated U and T to get an real impression of them. It is not a mandatory decision. -- Wiimm (talk) 21:25, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
For more than 2 weeks there are no more pros or contras so the logo decision was done.
@Jefe: Thanx very much for all your logos!!
Wiimm (talk) 19:22, 5 September 2014 (UTC)


Wiki aa.png

Personally, I'm not 100% happy with the red version after seeing it on here for a while, so I uploaded one final version. The metallic silver/gray and blue represent the colors of the MKWii (white and aqua blue.) Also, I uploaded a zip with PSD file, high-res png versions of these logos, and the fonts to my webspace. --Jefe (talk) 14:06, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Today I visited the wiki 3 times to compare the images. And my decision is: see top left ;)
Wiimm (talk) 19:00, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Track Names/Translation

I think it's very bad that the two track names are on different places one on CTGP Revolution/Translation/Track Names and the other on Horsti12/Translation are on one page + the tracks which aren't in ctgp-r Why not make a page for every track and battle track translation? I already did a Proof of concept page in my own wiki. What do you think? Green things are officional translated by Nintendo --Horsti12™ THE Clouddealer (talk) 15:40, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello? --Horsti12™ THE Clouddealer (talk) 18:56, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
The Track Translations are on the track pages so I dont see your problem. If you make stuff redundant by also writing them on your distribution translation pages its your choice.
Tock (talk) 19:10, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes but the most users only change the translation on the CTGP Revolution/Translation/Track Names-Page and tracks which are in ctgp-r have the most time full :::translated track names, none ctgp-r tracks only have a few translations, so my idea is to move the page to Track Names/Translations and add EVERY custom track which is :::released there. When you have all translations on one site than people can see which translations are missing and which not.
--Horsti12™ THE Clouddealer (talk) 19:18, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
If you have all Track translations on one page its extremly hard to find the ones you need. There should rather be a category where tracks land if they have an incomplete translation table.
Tock (talk) 16:02, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
Ok than the custom tracks go one page Tracknames/Translations/Custom_Tracks and the SNES Tracks on Tracknames/Translations/SNES ..........
--Horsti12™ THE Clouddealer (talk) 16:12, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Cookies problem

When I open wiki.tockdom.de , I used to always automatically log in, but I can no longer log in via CT-Wiiki, it says I had disabled cookies. I go to MK8-Wiki, and found myself logged in. How can I solve this problem? I am using Google Chrome.--CustomArio (talk) 11:49, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

And how did you posted that message then? Also try to delete the cookies first.
Tock (talk) 12:45, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
When I returned here from MK8, I was logged in however.--CustomArio (talk) 14:50, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
You should be using wiki.tockdom.com rather than wiki.tockdom.de. The .de address was kept so that urls wouldn't be broken when the site changed to .com.--Jefe (talk) 16:28, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. That worked.--CustomArio (talk) 07:12, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Since start of mk8 wiki, tockdom.com is defined as cookie domain for both wikis to allow a single sign on. To avoid future problems, I have redirected now wiki.tockdom.de and mk8.tockdom.de to the .com domains.
Wiimm (talk) 10:56, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh. That's why there's said problem.--CustomArio (talk) 11:27, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

New tutorials?

I have been surprised that there is no tutorial about animating textures, as I see. I hope one will come soon.--CustomArio (talk) 14:37, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

mis-welcoming {{subst:welcome}}

Since the wiiki's logo has changed, I think it is better to change the one in {{subst:welcome}}. It was a old one. --CustomArio (talk) 08:53, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Fixed. --Jefe (talk) 11:36, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Ok.--CustomArio (talk) 10:25, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
