Watch out for new members who make short posts and have advertising-y things in their signatures - as Miles mentioned, there's a fine chance that they're spambots.

It's a funny feeling to have a spambot channeling the voice of 2010 Vinny! In retrospect, I might've been a little over-optimistic about the positive effect of adding a wiki link to the mainsite, although doing so certainly didn't hurt wiki activity.

I can't believe that I didn't catch that.

I have recently been trying to get the Sprite Comps that were on this forum, but not listed in the wiki article,...well, listed in the wiki article, I guess (I can't really think of a better way to describe it). Though, there is a problem I had with the process. The links to the winning entries of Sprite Competition #1, #3, #4, and #8 appear to be dead. I unfortunately didn't save them to my computer before they got nuked, so I'm wondering if any of you out there happen to have at least one of the winning entries of the previously listed Sprite Competitions saved, or if you happen to be friends with one of the winners, got on contact with them and see if they still have their winning entry on their computer. If you did, then it would be really appreciated if you could upload them to the wiki, or if you can post them in here (or send to one of us contributors the winning entry) and one of us contributors can upload it to the wiki (though, I think it would be better if you did the former).

Also, how did you guys manage to know the results of the Sprite Competitions #1-3 (the ones in this era of the forums)? I looked at their topics, and I haven't found anything about the results.

That is certainly odd.
Do the posts in question appear to cut off abruptly, or to be missing chuncks of conversation?

It sounds like some of the images were shared using external file hosts but were later deleted. Is that correct? You'll probably need to contact the spriters individually to see if they still have the originals.

Well, there seems to be no posts about voting or results made in the topics about Sprite Competition #1-3.

Yes, the images were originally hosted on Imageshack, but they were later on removed for reasons that don't appear to be explained. I sent an e-mail to each one of the spriters just recently. They should hopefully reply soon, and see if they still have their winning entries or not.

So, I haven't received an answer from any of the winners yet (and it doesn't look like they went back and did something about that here on MFGG yet), but there is one thing that I have been wondering about. Should we be italicizing game titles? Because I've seen some articles do this, and I think it looks better that way, but it doesn't seem to noted on the Style Guidelines. It may take a very long time (if not impossible) to get every article to have game titles italicized, but I'm sure we could at least be able to get a majority of the articles have games titles use that format.

I think that's more of a choice of the editor to do.
You can if you like, but I see no reason to make it a requirement.

This is the kind of thing that would be nice to standardize, but it's a very low priority.

Yeah, ideally for a wiki it'd be preferred to have consistency around the board. It's hardly a thing to worry about right now, but in the future someone should probably go ahead and either italicize everything or de-italicize what has been italicized. One or the other, if you ask me.

So I know this isn't a huge priority to anyone, but I have a badge for winning something in the MFGG Awards 2008. I don't rightly remember what I won it for, but I do remember I won something, and I'm not on the list of winners, nor is such a win noted in my article.

Well, I just put you into the list of MFGG Awards 2008 winners, Black Boo. I wasn't around MFGG in the late 2000s and it doesn't seem like a usable archive that at least contains the MFGG Awards 2008 ceremony exists, so I didn't put what awards did you win. Hopefully someone that knows what awards you've won will put them into your article.

Also, guys, should this topic really stay on the News & Events sub-forum? I don't see anything in this topic that relates to the sub-forum, so I think the General Chat would be a more suitable place for this topic (that's just me, though, at least).

Is it allowed to do something like this...?

http://www.superluigibros.com/download- ... ario-games
I was thinking of mirroring and making articles of some of these games on MFGG Wiki. I know they aren't on MFGG, but they need some love too. They also are hidtorically significant due to being some of the first fangames made with Game Maker (the Trisoft Engine also has a demonstration on here).

I'm always appreciative of people who provide mirrors for download links, especially for popular games that are discussed on the Wiki but aren't hosted on the mainsite. Waligie games are a good example of this - I've uploaded a bunch of those to my Box account because file hosts often delete files that have been inactive too long, and old fangames sometimes go a while without being downloaded.

Apparently on the Sonic Retro wiki you can attach a zip file to the article without using an external host. Will I need to find an external host for the MFGG wiki, or is there a way to upload .zip files to it?

I'm afraid so.
We simply cannot handle the load on the Wiki.

Yes, you can rename pages. You can do so by clicking on the Move button, which should be on the top. That will take you to an area where you can have the page use a new name, with the old name now becoming a redirect to it. If you want to upload images, you can either click on "Upload file", which should be on the left, or click on a red image link. Doing so will take you an area where you can upload a file from your computer.

Hm, that seems odd. It seems that you did upload a file (and upload a new version of it), but I somehow can't seem to access it. I just get taken to a white area when I do so. I can't seem to even put the file on a page, because the page will then just be nothing but white, in my browser, at least. Not sure what could be the cause of this, unfortunately. I hope someone around here will be able to know what's going on around here.
