Sooo is everything going alright for you? :) As I reflect on 3 years of Triforce Wiki, I like to think of the hardships & successes alike that got the wiki to where it is today. Nearly 1,000 articles thanks to your hard work! Results May Vary (talk) 04:42, March 9, 2022 (UTC)

I'm doing fine I suppose. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 05:08, March 9, 2022 (UTC)
Are you glad that I left Discord? That's a goodbye to my 200 friends on there though (though can reconnect through other means), lol. Results May Vary (talk) 05:20, March 9, 2022 (UTC)
Can't say I am. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 05:24, March 9, 2022 (UTC)
I don't want to talk about what happened, but I assumed the majority of people would be happy that I set my Discord account to be permanently deleted in about 2 weeks from now. Results May Vary (talk) 05:29, March 9, 2022 (UTC)
Running away isn't how to solve your problems. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 05:39, March 9, 2022 (UTC)
The problem grew so big to the point where it became essentially unsolvable. If I kept talking I was going to risk losing my status and reputation here at Triforce Wiki and all of my friends. Results May Vary (talk) 05:43, March 9, 2022 (UTC)

Bye now[edit]

I decided that I won't (or hardly will be) editing Triforce Wiki any longer since none of you care about me anymore. Enjoy the wiki, and forget that I was ever involved with it or your friend to begin with. May the spirit of Mario Wiki live on. Results May Vary (talk) 02:51, March 11, 2022 (UTC)

Actually I might still edit here a bit -- I'm just trying to cope with reality rn. My main focus for the time being will be Miraheze Gaming Services. Results May Vary (talk) 18:22, March 11, 2022 (UTC)
And I'm actually cool with no longer bein staff here. I remember I founded the wiki to help you & others handle Zelda coverage better Results May Vary (talk) 18:33, March 11, 2022 (UTC)
Good to see you're coming around. :) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:41, March 11, 2022 (UTC)
Thank you. :) It's a miracle that I'm able to because anyone would be in a bad mood after what happened. Making tough decision to leave Discord (costing me 200+ friends), demotion from like 10 Grifkuba wikis,. I actually like using talk pages -- very wholesome.

Am I like LTL?[edit]

Have to use talk pages to talk to me :P Results May Vary (talk) 19:51, March 11, 2022 (UTC)

Depends, are you gonna vanish for months on end like him? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:59, March 11, 2022 (UTC)
Possibly. Currently the big thing I'm going to do is a Nintendo Wiki. I added some previously deleted Super Mario Wiki articles there already such as Flagman and Game Boy Gallery (you're prob not interested but I'm just glad the articles can live on in some form).

Talk pages[edit]

Speaking of which, I also asked something on two talk pages (MediaWiki talk:Monobook.css and MediaWiki talk:Gadget-StaffHighlights.css). On the former it's to fix an issue with the sidebar where only Tools and Search bar have this gold border surrounding them but instead this make so that they all do. Results May Vary (talk) 19:51, March 11, 2022 (UTC)

For Monobook.css talk I gave instruction for how to implement. Results May Vary (talk) 20:26, March 11, 2022 (UTC)
Sorry, just asking another thing: mind adding:
li ul, li ol { margin-top: 0.1em !important; }
dl + ul, dl + ol { margin-top: -0.3em !important; }
ul + dl, ol + dl  { margin-top: 0.3em !important; }

under /* formatting fixes */ in MediaWiki:Common.css? Mario Wiki added this just now & it slightly changes the padding of bullet lists. Results May Vary (talk) 13:47, March 12, 2022 (UTC)

Gaming Wiki Network[edit]

Are you & others (specifically Metalex123) going to protect my founding vision for it and make sure that it does not affiliate with NIWA (I'm talking about GWN specifically, not Triforce Wiki, which NIWA doesn't appear to want regardless)? Hopefully tacopill can still bring up important news that could affect me as an editor. Results May Vary (talk) 21:06, March 12, 2022 (UTC)

Thank you for sticking up for me there. You didn't have to, especially because I don't deserve it after how I acted. I think the thing I was the most angry about was not my forced demotion but rather the concern that it was being enforced from the top-down rather than allowing the communities decide. So like I believe it's fair if it's a combo of both, but I don't the top-down enforcement to override what the community desires, especially because people within my own circles raised the concerns about me. I was told that Grifkuba always sides with the community rather than one person, and I hope they stick to that commitment. I actually ended up agreeing with the demotions because I'm part of the community here & GWN. :) Results May Vary (talk) 05:22, March 13, 2022 (UTC)
You still prolly oughta apologize for the initial outburst, particularly in regards to, ahem, language. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 08:32, March 13, 2022 (UTC)


Okay so my friend was kind enough to share with me the different vids and screenshots that he's taken on his Switch throughout the months. The Zelda-related ones include Breath of the Wild, Hyrule Warriors, and Age of Calamity. Here's an example of a screenshot that I managed to retrieve.
