Info boxes

Would it be possible to add the necessary templates to allow info boxes similar to wikipedia articles such as on the right hand side.

Yes, it is possible. Create a template like [[template:myname]]. And call it with {{myname|param1|param2}}. After initial creation I may help you.

Why did you lock my Bowser's Ice Palace page?

ALPHAMARIOX 7:11, 9 April 2011 (CMT)

Perhaps a click to a wrong link. I can't see a reason for locking and have unlocked it.
Wiimm 16:49, 9 April 2011 (CEST)
Thanks Wiimm.
ALPHAMARIOX 8:53, 9 April 2011 (CMT)

Tock, Lavaflow Volcano is a 4th gen track. It was made using BRRES expansion.
Igorseabra4 01:54, 15 May 2011 (CEST)

Ahh thx i didnt saw that he edited an MKWii course_model.brres and imported his own track into that .brres lol.
Tock 02:35, 15 May 2011 (CEST)

Tock, My page Simple World says: Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /var/kunden/webs/ho050211002/Meine Webseiten/wiki/includes/parser/LinkHolderArray.php on line 33. Wats that?

Pc Freak 14:41 31 May 2011

I'm mod here but someone (maybe you) removed all rights content of it. So it shows moderator, but no mod rights :P

Vulcanus2 23:28, 6 June 2011 (CEST)

I will edit this today^^.

Tock 03:56, 7 June 2011 (CEST)

Tock, have you seen that E cigs spamming? He types somthing realy weird.
PC Freak 11:36, 9 June 2011 (CEST)

Hey, can you teach me how to make animated textures??

HelloImYourMind 22:24, 12 June 2011 (CEST)

Tock, sorry for typing something in your name, I forgot to type my signature and time stamp. :-(
PC Freak 07:36, 15 June 2011 (CEST)

F*cking spammers!! Why are they doing this??
HelloImYourMind 21:01, 18 June 2011 (CEST)

Because this website is well visited bots will find this website easier and will edit things. I will protect every important pages.
Tock 21:05, 18 June 2011 (CEST)
What are bots?
HelloImYourMind 21:07, 18 June 2011 (CEST)
Coms that are deleting things or inserting wrong things^^.
Tock 21:09, 18 June 2011 (CEST)
Doesn't sound good.
HelloImYourMind 21:11, 18 June 2011 (CEST)
Too much bots, just remove editing right for anonymous users, than we don't need to protect all pages.
Vulcanus2 21:34, 18 June 2011 (CEST)
Yes, that might be the best solution.
HelloImYourMind 21:37, 18 June 2011 (CEST)

Disable Editing

It's possible ti disallow editing of all pages for all anonymous users. It needs only a few lines in LocalSettings.php. I you want, I'll look for it.
Wiimm 21:50, 18 June 2011 (CEST)

I already found it, simply add this line at the end of the LocalSettings.php:
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
(of course before the ?> :P)
Vulcanus2 21:53, 18 June 2011 (CEST)


Hey, the site now got an icon!!!

Your Race.szs

Hey Tock, I was wondering if you could lend me a link to a possible download of your Race.szs in a PM on YouTube?

Blocking Users

Why you blocked Syun?
PC Freak 16:10, 24 July 2011 (CEST)

"Inserting nonsense/gibberish into page" he insert over 3 times the same shit into his Usertalk page. Btw he broke Rule 3 with it.
Tock 16:35, 24 July 2011 (CEST)
On one hand 1 week seems to be hard on the other hand he will learn to make it better. All wikis are public and the pages should give info in an readable layout. And it is not moderators job to clean up the nonsense/gibberish, but they do this work.
Wiimm 20:45, 24 July 2011 (CEST)

Hello Tock, Why did you blocked my profile for one week?--Funkykong975 12:36, 25 January 2012 (CET)

I wonder why too, according to his User Contributions, he only broke rule 5 twice in November, but was told to no longer break it. And then you banned him more than a month later? -- SuperMario64DS, 17:56, 25 January 2012 (CET)

The thing you said...

You said ROMs/ISOs that you don't dump yourself is illegal, but what I read was: "If you don't own the game, you can legally keep the ROM/ISO for 24 hours." Obviously, nobody here owns Mario Kart GP, but we can legally have a ROM/ISO for 24 hours, even if we didn't dump it. Did you dump the MKDD ISO to get GCN Sherbet Land? Or did you download it?

SuperMario64DS 03:43, 24 September 2011 (CEST)

Your Info about 24 hours is wrong. When you download a game you have its even illegal.
@GCN Sherbet Land: I bought MKDD only because I wanted to create GCN SL. I paid only 20€ so im happy :P.
Tock 13:03, 24 September 2011 (CEST)
Different countries have different laws. And in germany it's illegal.
Wiimm 13:17, 24 September 2011 (CEST)
In my country is hosting illegal, downloading isn't.
kHacker35000vr 13:43, 24 September 2011 (CEST)
@Khacker: downloading is only legal when the song/game/movie are not sold anymore [in your country](here you can read it). Anyway this website is hosted in Germany and that mean that we must follow the german law.
Tock 14:03, 24 September 2011 (CEST)
@Tock The website is hosted by someone who lives in Germany, but Media Wiki I believe is American? Oh well. I own all the games I have ROMs/ISOs for, and I can legally download them. If I don't own them, my law says I can keep them for 24 hours, and then they must be deleted. I got MKDD as a gift when the GameCube was new, Super Mario Sunshine was bought in 2008, MKwii in 2009 (I don't have an ISO, though). Did you rip the MKDD ISO yourself?
SuperMario64DS 12:45, 24 September 2011 (CEST)
In no country your "24 hours law" exist. Dumping a Gamecube iso is very easy with Cleanrip and/or Wii disc dumper.
Tock 14:54, 24 September 2011 (CEST)

Here's a good suggestion...

Tock, every now and then I catch a new user 100% purposefully messing up the Main Page, like replacing a ":"s with";"s. In fact, I just un-did one of those. Since there is no reason for anyone to edit the Main Page besides the news, why not just make the "News Box" it's own template? And you can only give yourself/staff/moderators/admin the right to edit it. And if anyone ever wants something besides the News edited, they can ask you. This would prevent people from joining just to mess uo the Main Page, which happens about once or twice every month. Would you do that?

SuperMario64DS 05:05, 25 September 2011 (CEST)

Got your message on the forum

I couldn't send you a reply there (got this message Tock has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her.) Sure, I don't mind helping out.

Email Confirmed User...

Hello Tock! I believe I was not an E-Mail confirmed user, as I don't recall getting an e-mail prior to registering. If not, may you please move me to the E-Mail confirmed group? Kind regaurds,


Please set my status to "email confirmed user" Hanno 08:35, 17 October 2011 (CEST)

Then I wonder why I must fill out a capture to finishing editing. Now this capture is gone.

New Templates

I set up some new templates today. 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. This is really just a proposal at this point though, if anyone has suggestions about what the template should or should not include, the changes should be made soon before the template goes into general use. Once it is agreed to be final, 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 front page in the Track Authors: Use these formats box (The title should probably be Adding a New Hack? Use These Formats' now.) There are also now categories for fonts and character hacks.--Jefe 20:07, 26 October 2011 (CEST)

If no one has any objections, I'm going to roll this out.--Jefe 18:42, 2 December 2011 (CET)


Can you include the ShowHide option on this wiki, than you can hide spoilers. (I looks like the code is already available, it just needs something to allow users to use it)
Vulcanus2 21:01, 26 November 2011 (CET)

Hello Tock

I was testing to see if titles were case sensitive. Apparently they are. Can you delete this page? It's just a redirector now and probably not needed. Thanks in advance. --Torran 21:34, 20 December 2011 (CET)

Mario Kart Arcade GP

Hi Tock! I'm offering to port some Mario Kart GP Tracks with some CT Makers. Just go to, and search "Mario Kart GP 2", and there should be a track list on that page. Just let me know which track you'd like to port on my talk page, and I can do it when ever I don't have my own project, or when I'm not porting a course with someone else at the time. -- SuperMario64DS, 17:29, 23 December 2011 (CET)

New video extension

Hi Tock, please read my last note. Wiimm 23:10, 23 January 2012 (CET)

Tock, what's about the new video extensions? Wiimm 15:53, 3 February 2012 (CET)

Took some time, I can edit again

SMG2.5 Wiki?

I am not sure if your offer still stands, but the leader of SMG2.5 has FINALLY accepted your offer for to be a Wiki. If you do still want to go through with this, please reply to this, Blank also said that he'd like a Wiki to store his information of various file formats. Please reply with either a Yes or a No on your offer, we'd like to know soon. -- SuperMario64DS, 23:20, 7 February 2012 (CET)

Play around and write down what you guys need for extensions and other shit.
We'd Basically need everything this Wiki has... If you could put NWPlayer in whatever position is needed for him to edit Logos and things like that, please do so, and when Glem3 Joins the same for him, like Moderators and Admins or whatever. Again. thank-you for hosting a Wiki for us. -- SuperMario64DS, 06:07, 8 February 2012 (CET)
