Welcome to Wikitroid![edit source]


TerrorDactyl, welcome!

Hello and let me be the first to welcome you to Wikitroid, the fan-based Metroid resource. I hope you like the place and choose to join us in our work. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikitroid member! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, ask me on my talk page. Happy editing! — The Exterminator 22:06, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

RE: User's abusing the Wiki[edit source]

Handled. You simply need to remove that category from their userpages. I wouldn't call it abuse so much as not knowing the rules about it. By the way, please sign your talk page messages with four tildes (~~~~), which automatically adds your username and the current UTC time. --FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 23:32, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

It's pretty simple, it's just kinda hard to notice. Just hit the standard edit button, and at the bottom of the code entry window there will be a small categories box. Categories on the page are blue boxes, just hit the x and save the page to remove the categories. Alternatively, you could do it the old-fashioned way and hit "Code view" and see the old coding-style window for categories. --FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 23:43, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

My signature... whoopdie doo...[edit source]

quick thing[edit source]

Hey, when you go to put plural links, you don't have to do this: [[Lumite|Lumites]]. All you have to do is put an "s" outside the brackets: [[Lumite]]s. They both come out the same: Lumites and Lumites. The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:21, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

No, you just have to learn how this thing works. You'll get it eventually. ;) The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:23, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Also, don't put planet categories on rooms, it floods that category page. The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:25, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
Sure, but everyone else is doing MP2, so you'll be all alone. But yeah, you can help, just look at Greenpickle's instructions on how to create new rooms first. The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:29, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
Go to the category page for Aether and tell me if you see any rooms. They should only be in the area they are found in. The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:35, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
One more thing, when you put the light and dark world template, only the light world template goes on light rooms. Only the dark world template goes on dark rooms. You don't put them together on the same room. I know, there are some that are like that and I need to correct them. The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:39, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
:) I'm not mad at you. I'm sorry if it seems like I'm yelling, but I got 20 different things I'm doing at the same time. Anyways, I did the same things as you before, you'll eventually learn what to do and what not. (Sorry for all this spam.) I'll see ya 'round! :) The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:46, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
If two rooms have the same name, you add where they are found in parenthesis: [[Agon Temple Transport (Temple Grounds)]] and [[Agon Temple Transport (Sanctuary Fortress)]]. The templates are Template:Light MP2 rooms and Template:Dark MP2 rooms. (Whew!) The Exterminator (talkcontrib.countlogs) 01:50, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Rollback request[edit source]

Your rollback request has been declined - For one, I don't think you've been around long enough. Wait around a month or so and get 50-100 more edits before applying again. Also, I see you don't know what rollback is for. Rollback is for reverting vandalism only. In this case, even if you had rollback, you must use the undo button. On a side note, can you give me a link to the talk page in question where you got "yelled at"? --FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 01:06, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Sorry about the markup showing in the edit description. You use brackets to add images. Stick the whole filename in them and then you can use modifiers, normally thumb or allignment. Look at the code below. ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 17:59, December 29, 2009 (UTC) File:Samus.png|thumb|right|Hey! A message! The other problem is that you saved/uploaded your image as a .jpg. Don't do that. They are low res. You want to keep it a .PNG because there isn't any distortion. I uploaded a better image in place of yours, so no problem. You just want to learn about this kind of stuff, in time. ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 18:01, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Try to limit the number of edits you make, when possible, by using the Preview button and planning ahead. The admins have to manually patrol each edit that non-admins make including on talk and user pages. I'm not telling you not to make an edit that you feel needs to be made or be less active, just plan ahead so that you don't need to edit a page 5 times if you don't have to. 20:05, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Your user page. There's no need to apologize and panic so much, either. ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 20:20, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Logs[edit source]

I like the logs on your page, but one thing: can you change my last name? Green is kinda dumb. Name me, oh, Roy Dane. Say I'm Admiral Dane's nephew or something. RoyboyX 20:15, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Please use the show preview button[edit source]

You had made around 5 consecutive edits to your userpage. Use the show preview button to make sure you added everything you wanted to add in one edit. It makes it easier for admins to patrol the recent changes. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 20:22, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Funny, I noticed that ChozoBoy had already told you, after I wrote the message. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 20:33, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Your sig[edit source]

Go to your preferences. On the first page that pops up, go down until you find "Signature". Beneath the long bar is a box that says "Custom Signature". Check the box, then copy this into that bar: [[User:TerrorDactyl|<font color="Black" size="2px">'''''T'''''</font><font color="OrangeRed" size="2px">'''''erro'''''</font><font color="Cyan" size="2px">'''''r'''''</font><font color="OrangeRed" size="2px">'''''Dact'''''</font><font color="Black" size="2px">'''''yl'''''</font>]]. Save and test it out at Wikitroid:Sandbox. Enjoy! The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 20:58, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

It might be too big Put your sig into this page: User:TerrorDactyl/Sig. Once that's done, put this in that signature bar: {{subst:User:TerrorDactyl/Sig}}. Try it and see if that works. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 21:04, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
That might have been because your signature was too long for that box. Try using that page. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 21:07, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Did you check that "Custom Signature" box? The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 21:15, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Now let's see here. TerrorDactyl (TalkContribsCountLogs) Hope that worked! TerrorDactyl 21:21, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

WOO! IT WORKED! And now to get that as my sig... TerrorDactyl 21:31, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Hey Terror, there's something else about your sig that you need to know. When you go on other wikis, you don't have a sig page there, so your sig shows up like this: {{subst:User:TerrorDactyl/Sig}}. Example [1]. You can do two things:
  1. Create another page for your sig on that wiki. (some may not let you)
  2. Sign like this on that wiki: [[User:TerrorDactyl|TerrorDactyl]] [[User talk:TerrorDactyl|(talk)]]
It's your choice what to do. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 01:54, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

re:Fanon Series[edit source]

You can include my character, but I probably won't add anything unless I got nothing better to do. BTW, big fanon stuff usually goes to Metroid Fanon. You can put it there. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 23:43, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Well, you don't have to do it there, you can do it here. But if you want to give background information on your characters, that's the spot to go. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 23:50, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Well, you can make it an alternate story for my guy. I'll add a link to my Avenger blog once you got the fanon started. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 00:32, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
I'll try, but like I said on my blog, I'm going to finish more important stuff first. The Exterminator {ADMIN} (talkcontribscountlogs) 00:59, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

RE:3D Squee[edit source]

D'you mean that picture in my infobox? I googled that one. It's from Myst III: Exile. Several months ago, If you did a Google image search for "Myst Squee," that picture was the first one that came up. Now all you get is a picture of Saavedro in a Santa Claus suit plus a bunch of fake concept art that Cyan Worlds drew to make people think they actually came up with the concepts for the Myst games (MYST IS REAL! MOST OF THE STUFF IN THOSE GAMES ACTUALLY HAPPENED). Squeemaster 23:10, December 30, 2009 (UTC) Hey, it does rhyme... RE:3D Squee! ARR EE THREE DEE SQUEE!!!

Yeah, I kinda looked on the page history and figured out that it was you. And lucky for us, Edanna is very, very, very far from Earth. Maybe in a different universe or even in a different time. I'm not quite sure myself. If that asteroid has a 1 in 300,000 chance of hitting Earth, it probably has a 1 in 3,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000...googleplex_zeros_later...000,000,000 chance of hitting Edanna. Squeemaster 20:29, January 1, 2010 (UTC) Wow. That's pretty cool. I made the number go off the page.

Ah, I see. I'm rollin' Squeemaster 00:03, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Exactly! Or the time period, for that matter. Squeemaster 00:22, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Force Pyre/SW Fanon[edit source]

It's basically just like Force Lightning, but with fire. It makes for a really generic Force power. See, my story is basically about Cassus realizing that neither side (the Jedi or Sith) is the most powerful, simply because, they are both limited to one side, the sith to darkness and the jedi to light. So he slowly forges a 3rd sect of Force users. They have no name as of yet, i'm still working on that, but the jedi call them grey, and the sith still call them jedi. Anyway, he bases his idea of the Force, on Kreia's teachings, that's the major twist in the story for all the KOTOR fans out there, did you really think Kreia died at Malachor? haha. Anyway she ends up betraying him for the same reason she betrays the exile and revan, because she wants to destroy the Force, and he wishes to unite the Galaxy through the Force, obviously he can't very well do that if she kills it... But like i said he realizes that, to truly harness the full, unlimited power of the Force, one must be open to everything. So as he is grey, he is open as it is. So him and only him (kreia as well but she hates the force so it doesnt count) has the ability to do anything. It has it's drawbacks of course, hah, when kreia betrays him, they have a huge Obi-Wan/Anakin battle. It takes place on Kashyyyk, where Cassus has a massive super laser built into the ground of the planet. See in my fanon i actually give super lasers a classification. Its the same type of superlaser used in the deathstar, in appearence, but its on the ground, so basically its a giant metal dent in the ground, hah. But its referred to as a Caldera-class Superlaser. Anyway, he tries to kill kreia by luring her into the Caldera, while is armada commander, Osiaan, activates it. Of course it doesnt work because she flees before it's fired, and hes forced to shield himself from its blast, so he projects a personal shield with the Force, and holds back the very beam of the superlaser. This intern leaves him badly exhausted, so ye is currently in a medative healing state aboard his flagship, the Infinite Apex... And earlier on, yeah, he creates the Force Pyre skill. To use it, one must fill his mind with extreme hatred and destruction, but at the same time, his mind must be in a state of balance. If he were to lose balance, the flames would consume him, and the area around him. It's an extremely destructive power, requiring much more hatred than Force Lightning.

My story is far to massive to post it all on here. So if you want to know more, ask me, but be specific on what exactly what you want to know. Like what is his military made up of? Or something. Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 19:13, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sure Thing[edit source]

Yeah, i'll work on your space dragon pic as my next project. May take me a little while where school just started back, but i'll get it done for ya! Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 23:20, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Cancellation[edit source]

When was I in trouble? hah. Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 08:29, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

I don't recall FastLizard getting "mad" at me...? Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 13:09, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

References[edit source]

When using citations and references in articles, remember to use the in-line format. I detail this here, but if you need more help, feel free to ask me. Thanks, FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 23:58, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

RE: My Portrait[edit source]

Well, I'm glad you like it, as I hate it. :P. But oh well. Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 20:39, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oh and make sure that you save it and reload it yourself, because I'll be deleting it in a while. Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 20:41, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Psh, you need to read my fanon. :P Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 21:01, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Fanon[edit source]

Come to IRC. Ill tell ya bout my Fanon and vice versa. Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 21:40, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Summary Language[edit source]

TerrorDactyl, you know better than using that sort of language in the summary box (or anywhere on Wikitroid, really). Just reminding you... Thanks! Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 21:36, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Talkheaders and spore spawn[edit source]

To add a talk header type { {Talkheader} } w/out the spaces. Also, while plants can be considered having things that would make them analogous to having genders, they have both parts on one plant, which makes them asexual, therefore "it"s. --DekutullaZM 17:09, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

RE: FAILURE!!![edit source]

Pardon? I've got what all wrong? Squeemaster 19:10, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Grr... Watch the language, TD. If I believed in god, I would eat you right now. just watch it. Oh, and really? A true Sweeney Todd fanatic would know that the correct phrase is: "You sir! Too sir. How about a shave??" ;) Piratehunter{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 10:23, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

RE: TIEBREAKER!!![edit source]

Er...you know no one cares about that, right? Also, please don't use capitals on the subject line...it's like shouting at me.

Also, never put stuff like "more to come..." on articles. It's just one step away from signing your edits, and that would be bad. very bad.... --DekutullaZM 00:36, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

RE: SqueeCrusher recreates Zebes[edit source]

McTeague is an old novel published in 1899 by Frank Norris. The main character is a big, stupid, under-qualified dentist named McTeague. Pretty much everybody in the whole book except for the old couple next door are dumb, greedy people and they all kill each other in the end. It's so bad it's almost comical. The picture of Samus and the Namihe-X or whatever it is looked as if Samus was examining its teeth and thinking, big ferocious teeth like this call for a big ferocious dentist like McTeague! and same thing with the Hornoad-X.

BTW, I really wouldn't recomend that book, unless you want to read a (ahem) "good example of classic American naturalism." It can be depressing and boring, at times. Squeemaster 02:58, February 27, 2010 (UTC)

Ooh...[edit source]

PH is gonna kill ya. He called Ganon. He also called Fox, Snake, Meta Knight and Lucario. --RoyboyX{ADMIN} 12:25, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Get on. Ex wants ya... :P --RoyboyX 20:48, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

That's the exact reason I could never speak to you until now. Aaaah, the memories... 13:16, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

RE: I dub thee...[edit source]

Good day to you also, and thank you. Your recognition of my height, authority, and dichotomy is appreciated. SQUEEMASTER 00:13, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

RE: How to indicate that a picture is needed.[edit source]

What Roy said (add {{images}}). And actually, yes I know the water you're speaking of, I wouldn't be completely against making an article for it. Make sure it won't fit anywhere in the actual Water article first, which would be preferred if possible. :P --Piratehunter {ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 00:51, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

Ron actor?[edit source]

I'm developing a boxart back description for Avenger, and I just wanted to know who you wanted Ron's actor to be. I've picked out Merle Dandridge for Samus (the voice of Alyx Vance in Half-Life) and Logan Lerman for Roy (I want the voice to be deep and he fits the bill). I imagine a deep voice for Exterminator. --RoyboyX (TalkContribsUN) 01:12, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

Please return[edit source]

Please Terror return to editing. I miss you, you're fun and you have great battle strategies, and I need a few friends right now. --РoйбoйX (TalkContribsUN) 02:08, June 16, 2011 (UTC)

Terror, I have trouble occasionally too. I'll have new ideas a bit later, and nobody replies to them within ten minutes usually. Where there's a Will, there's a Way. 22:31, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
