Progress and a Request, my friends.

So I have noticed that the only people not making this website look like a ghost town are Dry Paratroopa and I. I've been basically flooding the 'recent changes' section by improving Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs, not complaining about that. I honestly and truly love this website. I really do. I get to release all my creativity on a public website for all to read. It's a thrill! But that's not the point. The point is that, well, I'm alone here for more than a majority of the time editing here, but my problem is that I would like to delete a few pages that are kind of clogging up the Fanon. I've already tagged them with the 'Delete' template, so I only need to find the category for pages pending deletion. Since there are no people here, and since I haven't been here in quite a long time, I forget how to perform certain tasks, like deleting pages. Plus, the pages I want to delete are clogging up the Breadbug category, and is an ever-so-slight pain. If anyone would like to tell me how to delete pages, I'd appreciate that. Thank you for reading this, and have a great day. Ani494MS.png ~ Cheepy-Cheepy

Ah yes. I had noticed those pages, but forgot to delete them, my apologies. Will get to that now. :P
Unfortunately, only admins and above can delete, so you did the right thing by marking those pages for deletion. Another thing, when making a new section, remember to post the new section at the bottom, so that they are consistent. One more thing: when making these sorts of requests, please use the forums. I know you haven't been here in a couple years, and you're still relearning everything, and that's fine! Anyway, it's great that you've been making progress! :D ~PikFan23 (Admin)

Is this wiki dying?

Yes. If you didn't hear, I've returned after two years. Yippee. But now something bothers me here. Is it just me, or does there seem to be WAY less activity than there was before I left? Ani494MS.png ~ Cheepy-Cheepy

Well, the activity comes and goes. While the activity is probably lower, it does usually lower during the winter, when most users are busy with school. Tanbulborb.pngI'm Peach Bulborb, and I approve all grub dogs. (Sysop)

Activity naturally fluctuates. In 2012-2013, activity was lower, but there was a resurgence of it this year. It really depends on the time of year. ~PikFan23 (Admin)

Weird Formatting

I have a feeling the formatting after the move has something to do with an uninstalled extension or something. I miss the featured article and video boxes. Are we adding them back? My user pageMy talk page

Yes, they'll be added back as soon as we can figure out how to right-align the templates. However, it currently is still better than three lines of useless text, so it is an improvement.

style="float:right"? --Yoshord 21:42, 15 September 2010 (EDT)
I tried and it didn't work. I also tried some of the coding that MarioWiki uses on their mainpage for right-align and it didn't work either. I'm not really sure what the correct code is, but I hope we can find it out soon.

The left column being full width even when explicitly told to not be full width with margin-right:-310px; is annoying. Making the left column 74% wide and the right column floated right and 25% wide works, although I doubt it is correct. Too bad IE doesn't like CSS3 right now. --74.105.121.97 17:32, 16 September 2010 (EDT)

Join NIWA Forums for the launch!

Let's do this, NIWA! --Porplemontage 15:24, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

I'm already there, and under the exact same account name. When we are finally reveled on the NIWA homepage I assume that I and any of the other admins here will be given the "so-and-so Admin" rights like you and Axiomist have, provided they make an account. Also I'm curious, what's the third wiki? It can't be this one, as NIWA doesn't accept fanon wikis, and Lylat Wiki has already been unveiled to the few unknowing. The only other option that I see is Wikibound, but it doesn't meet the 200 article requirement. Then again, neither did Lylat Wiki.


SirPikmin,SIRPIKMIN.JPGYour Bold Pikmin Knight!Contributions

Yeah. And I'll PM you the other wiki. --Porplemontage 18:30, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

Wiki Name

Is the site officially "Pikmin Fanon" now? Do you want me to change the name of the wiki since right now it is Pikcanon-NOT? --Porplemontage 11:56, 10 November 2010 (EST)

Please do so. Wraith~Admin, Bureaucrat
Yeah, that sounds good. My user pageMy talk page

Stupid and Ridiculous

I already knew that NIWA was full of no-lifes that were idiots, but a FANON WIKI in NIWA? That is just unbelievably ridiculous and stupid.


Someone created a Fanon because they wanted something different other than a wiki related to a real game. Also note that your offending tons of people. Think about what you want to say next time, please. Also, Your on this wiki, too, right? So, doesn't that make you a no-life idiot?Ani494MS.png ~ Cheepy-Cheepy

I seperated the anon's message with yours, because It looked like you said it at first. Wraith~Admin, Bureaucrat

Oh, thanks Peanut. Ani494MS.png ~ Cheepy-Cheepy

I don't think that the anon is here anymore lol Wraith~Admin, Bureaucrat

I haven't even noticed that much stuff going on around here anymore... Do people even use this?? I would like it if people paid more attention to this fanon wiki...

There are many reasons as to why activity is in decline, but I shall not list them as there are too many. Also, if you would like to talk about this particular subject, see here. ~PikFan23 (Admin)

What's Changed?

The wiki is looking... different. There is a different backround image and the sides tabs that are always present on the side are darker shades of green. Should I be seeing this, and if so, why? Tanbulborb.pngI'm Peach Bulborb, and I approve all grub dogs. (Sysop)

Well, it was an effort to make the skin more contemporary and less bright and tacky. If you don't like it, I'll gladly accept any comments you have on it. Wraith~Admin, Bureaucrat

I like it, but the change shocked me the first time. Now it seems great! Tanbulborb.pngI'm Peach Bulborb, and I approve all grub dogs. (Sysop)

More Activity

We need more help this wiki is losing people! Bulbmin.jpg "I'm Bulbminlead101 , and I lead all Bulbmin."


We have semi active users such as myself, Neo, BallsAngus, Espyo, Scruffy, Pikminfan27, Pikfan23, and a few others that are good at coming on every so often. Pikifan4 17:00, 13 February 2016 (EST)

Pikifan4, you're responding to an old comment, but for anyone who's interested, there's always Special:ActiveUsers. Special:ContributionScores is also another useful page. And the wiki's activity has been analyzed over and over and over... I'd rather not analyze it again, we'll just come to the same conclusion. ~PikFan23 (Admin) 21:04, 13 February 2016 (EST)

Polls.....

I just noticed we had the Pikmin 3/Wii U poll for three years. And the current one should be changed soon.... Pikifan4 13:35, 24 June 2016 (EDT)


Yeah it should be like what should replace the story serial! What do you think? — I am LoganPikmin and meet my friend Spike Pikmin by Scruffy.png Spiky the Spike Pikmin.


I dunno..... Pikifan4 (talk) 15:36, 14 October 2016 (EDT)


Does anyone even use this anymore?

Honestly.... I don't see anyone edit this place anymore hardly...... Pikifan4 (talk) 15:36, 14 October 2016 (EDT)

The wiki's activity always plummets during the school year because everyone is so caught up with work and friends. Someone, like you or I, makes time for the Fanon, and that's pretty awesome. Ani494MS.png ~ Cheepy-Cheepy

I'll try to be more active now. The reason for this is, well... We all have lives to live and things to do. Hopefully there's more activity this summer. Hopefully. — DiamondSpiderRender.png This message was approved by Neocraftz1553

Hey guys sorry that I haven't been on for a while. I have been busy with school, I will be editing soon a lot more! How are you guys doing? — I am LoganPikmin and meet my friend Spike Pikmin by Scruffy.png Spiky the Spike Pikmin.

Fine. I don't really edit much, but I alteast come here still. Anyway, nice to know people here are still Alive. Pikifan4 (talk) 15:53, 29 October 2016 (EDT)
