Welcome to my talk page! Before you post any messages, there are some rules I'd like to be followed here (yes, I have to follow them too).

  1. Post all new topics under ==this type of== header.
  2. Sign all comments using ~~~~
  3. No removing or changing content here, unless you're correcting your own grammar, or you're striking something out you wrote.
  4. All Wikitroid rules and guidelines apply.
  5. Although I don't mind being called Dr. Pain, there are millions of Dr. Pains; the 99 sets me apart. So if you must shorthand, I'd prefer to be called DP99.

Looking for me?[edit source]

Hey man, I heard you were looking for me. Need something? (I'd post on SSB Wiki like you asked, but I can't log in or recreate an account). The ExterminatorTalk/Contribs 21:33, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

I don't need anything specific. I just miss talking to you. Unfortunately, I can't go on to IRC right now. Someone (RoyboyX, I think) said you usually edit on a 3DS and that limits the time you can be on IRC, so if you can give me some dates and times you'll be on, I'd appreciate it. Docto</font~~>rPain99 02:01, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Just let me know if you're on, and I'll be there. I also check Wikitroid's and DK Wiki's chat channels a few times when I'm on, so I'm sure I'll catch you somewhere. And yeah, I am limited to one page open at a time (brilliant design, don't ya think? oh well, at least it works), so I might be constantly exiting and re-entering. The ExterminatorTalk/Contribs 02:27, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

It must suck to only be able to open one window at a time, but yeah at least it works. The times I'm on vary from day to day, so if I see you editing on here, I'll leave a message on your talk. Thanks, and see ya on IRC sometime. DoctorPain99 02:37, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Images for signatures[edit source]

Two reasons it isn't allowed. One, the image is off topic and it goes against the off topic images policy. Two, images in signatures generally slow down the loading of pages. This means that if a signature with an image is repeatedly used, it will cause the page to load extremely slowly. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 02:56, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

I disagree with the off topic images nonsense, but if images in signatures is against the signature policy, I'll remove it. Sorry about the issue. DoctorPain99 02:59, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
For the record, said policy went through a vote. If you want the policy changed, you have to do an RfC, just like the rest. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 03:04, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
I have no intention of changing said policy here. An image in a sig is not the end of the world. Forum:Notability is more important. DoctorPain99 03:06, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
"I disagree with the off topic images nonsense" The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 03:08, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
I do disagree, but it's not worth getting into an argument about. DoctorPain99 03:11, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

You haven't played a Metroid game[edit source]

I can give you recommendations. We can all expand our horizons a bit. Unless you are low on cash or something. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 03:34, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Oh thanks. I'm not low on cash (thank goodness), so what would you recommend? DoctorPain99 03:41, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
I'd recommend either Metroid Prime (GameCube) or Super Metroid (SNES/Wii VC) as a good way to get into the Metroid series. Though if you're into multiplayer, I'd recommend Metroid Prime Hunters (DS). However, there are A LOT of cheaters on Wi-Fi. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 04:02, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
Metroid Fusion (GBA) and Metroid Zero Mission (GBA) can also be decent starting games.
I don't recommend the original Metroid for NES unless you really like pain. I do, so that is why I play it sometimes. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 04:13, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
I'll probably start with Super Metroid. I like Super Nintendo games, and have heard great things about Super Metroid. Thanks again. DoctorPain99 04:29, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

RE:Another Hint[edit source]

What point was I defending? I was just astounded that he would tell me about arguing and personal attacks. And I don't recall inviting you into the discussion? Do you have a habit of popping in a speaking for others? Because that would be annoying. And your point about the admins dealing with RBX. I laugh at that, RBX gets away with whatever he wants. There are no consequences to him. And yes, I suppose that post might've been PH's more friendly posts. But don't you worry, I'm sure I'll get chewed out by him sooner or later. And your not-so-subtle threat there "if you piss him off, you will regret it" was not very helpful at all? Did you just make that post to threaten me like that? I certainly hope Ccalen would do anything he'd regret. He is socking and evading a ban after all. The reason I responded with the hostility I did to him, was the very fact that he was preaching to me about not arguing with RBX while giving RBX no warning. Why? Because their best friends! Ah. Yes. And the reason I respond with hostility here, is because you put your nose where it didn't belong and you threaten me. Do not threaten me. I don't want any problems, so please refrain from making them. ~Perfento~ 20:26, July 9, 2011 (UTC)

I think we both misunderstood each other. By not inviting you, I simply meant it was a problem that didn't involve you. For instance, if someone was being blocked you wouldn't chime in and say "Yeah, s/he deserves it" would you? I know I am responsible for personal attacks just as Ccalen is, and I'm not afraid of them. People on this wiki say a lot worse things than that and evade blocking. So I have no fear of being blocked. Not arrogance, (although it seems like it eh?) more something like confidence. I'm not here for problems, but I will defend myself appropriately if I am given one, you understand of course? And I do listen to more experienced users. I just don't listen to ones that threaten me, or have subtle messaging against me. We wouldn't even be having this problem if PH had warned Roy about arguing. Instead he came to me and said "don't argue with Roy. It's impossible. Just let him do whatever he wants". That, to me, is unacceptable. This thing should be resolved now, as I've warned PH to stop trolling me. And as for you DP, I'm sorry for any offense to you. I mean no harm to those that show respect. I mistook your warning for a threat, and for that I'm sorry. But please don't warn me about getting myself into things. I can hold my own against an abusive ex-admin if the time calls for it. I hope we can move past our disagreements, you and I? ~Perfento~ 00:07, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

Greatest of thanks to you, good sir. ~Perfento~ 22:01, July 11, 2011 (UTC)


Doctor, please remember to tell RoyboyX to make an account at samwiki.wikkii.com. I am a user there, Loudclaw, and also an Admin, B'crat, and Oversighter. The "Leader" of the wiki gave me those rights when I asked for them, and I have never been stupid enough to abuse them. 24.94.89.214 01:22, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Your recent sig[edit source]

Brings back bad memories... :S ;) --ROY-BOYX 01:06, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, right. I just changed the colour because of my gf. She's obsessed with red, so it reminds me of her. :P DoctorPain99 {ROLLBACKER} (talke-mailcontribscountlogs) 02:03, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

IRC[edit source]

I'd like to talk on IRC at some point. Preferably not tonight. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 02:35, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

I'm pretty busy this week. Is Sunday okay? DoctorPain99 {ROLLBACKER} (talke-mailcontribscountlogs) 04:01, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

[1][edit source]

Though removing comments is certainly out of line, I don't think there's anything wrong with striking out comments Royboy deems as unacceptable. Best to respect his opinions regarding the comments he struck out and let him do what he wishes, unless he goes as far as to remove content. Mr. Anon 04:24, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Editing others comments is just as, if not more out of line. Rather than removing what one is saying, you are changing what they are saying, which is bad. Striking out a comment should only be done by a user to their own post to "repeal" something they've said in case their opinion changed or something. Also, having that text stricken out is unnecessary and messes with the archive DoctorPain99 {ROLLBACKER} (e-mailcontribscountlogs) 04:44, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Um, actually that was me misunderstanding the system by which you rename articles. Thanks, though: I hope to someday become an admin here myself someday, but in the meantime I'm gonna need to learn as much as possible about the rules and regulations of this Wiki. Heh, imagine that: I've been editing here for almost three years, and I haven't given the rules page anything more than a cursory scan.

Dr. Anonymous 01:33, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

Namig Preferences[edit source]

For future reference, please refer to me as either "Dr. Anonymous" or simply my nickname, "Doctor". Using the abbreviation of my "surname" will undoubtedly lead others to mistake me for Mr. Anon, who also doesn't like getting confused with me. User: Dr. Anonymous1 17:49, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

Okey dokey DoctorPain99 {ROLLBACKER} (e-mailcontribscountlogs) 18:32, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Just a couple of words[edit source]

I still am not convinced. It's a slower process by far. Also a strange proportion of the support was from Smash Wiki. Hrm... The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 15:47, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

Don't Ban Roy... permanently.[edit source]

Well, I still personally don't think that we should perma-ban Roy: I mean, he IS our best editor by far, and certainly the most devoted. Plus, his fanfics are rather good. Roy's problem is, DP99, that he has terrible social skills, and takes everything SO seriously that he can't tell the difference between a compliment and a death threat.

In my humble opinion, he should be allowed to continue editing after his sentence is up, but be limited to using the IRC for comms. Needless to say, his chances of becoming Admin ever again are pretty much shot. --User: Dr. Anonymous1 22:46, April 14, 2012 (UTC)

The problem is that Roy promised to several people that he would change, and DP was one of those people. Of course, Roy did change for the worse... The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 23:13, April 14, 2012 (UTC)
I know I'm not supposed to butt into conversations, but I have a moral for this. When I was like 5, I stole a peice of crystal from my friend, and I lied to him. I honestly don't know why. But, my dad didn't trust me until he forgot about it. As he would say, once a liar, always a liar. Same with Roy. Even though I honestly didn't know him that well and I have no clue what he thought of me, I feel that if he did something bad and got caught, he's gonna want revenge.
MayTheLightOfAetherProtectYou 00:19, April 15, 2012 (UTC)
Dr. Anonymous, look at RoyboyX's block log; he's been given enough chances. While I do see his dedication and editing skill as valuable, it doesn't change the fact that he's a control freak who cannot work well with others. Though he is a great editor, he plays by the rules that every other user does, and I'm certain that any wiki would permaban any user that did the things Roy did. The terrible social skills thing is no excuse: I, as well as some other users I know, are diagnosed with Autism. Honestly, look at this from the perspective of MG2433g5, Ex or myself: FL and PH were going to ban him for a longer time, but we gave him a chance and then he betrayed us. DoctorPain99 {ROLLBACKER} (talke-mailcontribscountlogs) 02:07, April 15, 2012 (UTC)

Head over to IRC for a bit[edit source]

If you can get the chance. --RAN1 {ADMIN} (talkcontributionslogbook) 03:00, June 1, 2013 (UTC)
