Well, what we really need there now are screenshots of Gamble Galaxy and Vocal Volcano.

If anyone could join as a member there we could get more in-depth.

Kirby Wikia? Kirby Wikia?!? Might I ask someone to burn that link? That accursed Kirby Wikia is nothing but a rip off of this site's Kirbypedia, the one true and greatest collection of Kirby info on the net. Largely since anyone can't edit it.

And when is say "rip off", I mean "blatantly steal pages, word from word, from the Kirbypedia and act like it is our own". Seriously, I've seen numerous pages that are my finely written, detailed, and over-the-top wordiness taken to the T with no credit given. Now, I'd still bear a grudge even if they did mention where the info came from, but it'd sure be a lot less of one. Pretty much, any page that goes over a paragraph of loose information, from what I've seen. I don't dig around too much since I don't want to give the fiends the satisfaction of another page view.

Sorry to break it to you, but before you point your accusing finger, let me point out that Kirby Wikia has many more articles than Kirbypedia does. Ripoff or not.

Besides we're already starting to de-ripoff it anyway.

Also, Kirbypedia is way past it's prime. The last big update I saw there was back in December last year. If you ever want it to get another edit this year, you should swallow your pride and let it be editable to anyone, because at this rate I think it's pretty much dead.

Just because it has more articles doesn't mean that it's better. (See: Articles for "Red Kirby" and "Brown Kirby")

The fact that the wiki's logo has a fan-edited sprite in it leaves one questioning its reliability.

I see several problem with the Kirby wikia that make it incorrect and inconsistent. It's inferior to what KRR has.

So true. KRR pwns all our affiliates! :smile:

Like what?
If you list them we can fix them.
=)


Also, about the number of articles, all wikis need those seemingly 'unimportant' ones. Take the Super Mario Wiki for example, I've been an editor there for years, and they're one of the best one I've seen. Why? Because they have articles for all those small things. While Kirbypedia can seemingly only muster up pages for bosses and main characters.

Oh, and I've been asking around about a new logo for a few weeks there now, so we can get that changed soon.

No, the logo is fine for now...But you're right about the small things.

Tell me one big Kirby game that's come out since December of last year.

Go on, tell me.

No need to get defensive. Even though there are no recent games, you could at least extend the pages you do have, and fix all the vandalism.

Post subject:  Quality > Quantity

Here's what I know about the Wikia:

1) I was disgusted when I saw my Rick article stolen word for word, particularly since it ranked higher on Google. Strangely, to that same effect, the Chuchu article was just a blerb. What? Not good enough for the thief that took the hamster's?

2) The synopsis of the first Kirby episode barely qualifies as English.

Seriously, the Kirbypedia mail account gets a lot of stuff sent to it, but a lot of it is, well, not of the best quality. That's why I hold off one most of that stuff until, you know, a better person writes it. And, since I seem to be the only person who writes stuff anymore, guess who that leaves?

Now, if Kirbypedia, alone, was my role at RR, I could see it sucking that I haven't been updating it as much as I want to. However, the problem comes in when you account for the fact that I've been about updating the site every other day, if not more, for how long?

But ranting on who's is better isn't the point of this. I think we all can agree that either of the site's deposits is better than the garbage at Wikipedia. Seriously, they don't have a clue what they're doing.

They have NiDL it's own article, but KSSU is still it's own.

Yes, because KSSU is definitely out already...

Try again.

Yes, because a remake which we don't have much info until it gets released deserves it own article. Truly brilliant. KSSU will probably never get it's own entry, and frankly it doesn't need one. All that will be needed is stuff added to the original super star, add on and changes that will be included with the remake.

KSSU does not deserve an article of it's own.

Alright, I worked on our Ice Dragon, Lovely, and Kracko page.
I've also added quite a bit of Demon Beast and anime-only articles, too.
=)

I'm trying my best to erase all traces of the info previous users stole from Kirbypedia and added. I've tried my best to fix the Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright page. Could eveyone just check to see if it's different enough?
:hide:

Anyway, the Wiki needs pics of the bosses from Revenge of the King. Help?
Also, I would suggest merging Kirby Wiki and Kirbypedia, but I would imagine that neither of the two sites would agree on anything..

Quick question:

Is there an official name for the pineapple enemies?
We used your name of "Jungle Bomb" and made a page called "Pineapple Bomb" that redirects to it.
Are either of those right? Or was it never officially named?

Thanks!

I thought it was Jungle Bomb but I'm not totally sure.
