Sorry about having to revert your edit to Jabu-Jabu. The resemblance between Jabu-Jabu and the Wind Fish has been noted since even before Oshus was created, and just because in your opinion he looks closer to the new character does not mean the resemblance isn't there. No hard feelings? Dinosaur bob 17:01, 7 November 2007 (EST)

Maybe we could put the rumor instead in a Trivia section, as it IS such a well-known speculation, and present your evidence refuting it? And also, not yelling at you, but you responded on my userpage, not my talk page. Little nitpick. I'll edit over your responses for you, but just a note for the future. And glad there're no hard feelings. ;) Dinosaur bob 17:20, 7 November 2007 (EST)


Thanks for your input on the Golden Goddesses page. I'm trying to make it a more complete article, but no one else seems interested. Feel free to add info and references. I'm trying to cite a lot of the info on the page, so help is appreciated. --Farewell to Gibdos 23:13, 19 January 2008 (EST)

Connections between the Golden Goddesses and the Elements.

The connection between Nayru, water, and the Zoras is been made several times, aside from the simple color similarity. One of the primary examples of this is Nayru's Pearl, held by Jabun, the water spirit, has the image of Zora's Sapphire, the spiritual stone of water, engraved in it. There may be some uncertainty, but the connection there is undeniable.

Kaepora Gaebora is indeed a raptor, but he is never directly associated with the virtue of wisdom, either. The Rito, however, are associated with Din: they hold the Din's pearl, and so is Eldin, the light spirit named for her. The Gorons are also associated with Din, they are fire and earth elementals, and they hold the Spiritual Stone of Fire, another connection to the Goddess Din.

Farore is associated with forests; Farore's pearl lay with the Deku tree, in the Deku forest, and the Kokiri's Emerald as well. There are many connections between the Goddesses and their respective elements and peoples, and I will do my best to cite them within the article.--Farewell to Gibdos 17:39, 22 January 2008 (EST)

bloat

why have you just gone and merged the bloat artical and where on the website does it say shadow insect queen--Zanramon 16:43, 29 January 2008 (EST)

Removing content

Hey, there. I noticed your edit to the Shadow Prince page, and I was wondering why you removed the content without offering any explanation. I reverted your edit, but if you had a valid reason for removing the information, feel free to revert my revert and explain why. It's perfectly okay to remove stuff for a good reason, but if you leave edit summaries explaining this, it helps people like me to know that you aren't just blanking by mistake or whatever, okay? :)Justin(Talk) 07:26, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

(4/10/2015) You've removed the theory added to Fierce Deity page, citing that it doesn't follow the origin of Majora. Majora has no accepted canon origin, and to remove a 'theory' is rather silly. If you've got some reason as to explain why you feel this theory doesn't belong, please feel free to explain it, but lying and saying that it doesn't fit "Majora's Origin" is just wrong. There is no "origin" of Majora, at least no Canon. (THE MANGA IS NOT CANON, and I really wish people would accept that) LunkofHyrile (talk) 20:37, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Not to answer for Kryten, but it's important to note that theories are (slowly) being phased out of the wiki, so the information is likely to face removal anyway. - TonyT S C 20:58, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Nakku, Degu, and Nuranuru

Hi KrytenKoro!! You seem to be Japanese, aren't you? I've got some questions about Japanese names:

  • What is the Darknut japanese name: タートナック (Taato Nakku) or ダークナト (Dākunato)?? What does クナト and ナック means exactly in japanese? Is it Nut and Knuckle, or is it rather words derived from Knight?! Also a search on google gives more results related w/ darknut by using タートナック (Dāku Nakku) than ダークナト (Dāku Nato)
  • I've noted that degu ("デグ") is often used in the name of bosses or mini-bosses in Japanese (for example: King Bubble, Armos Knight, Moldorm in A Link to the Past, Manhandla in Four Swords, Hot Head, Slime Eyes, and Deku Toad). What does it mean?
  • I've seen here that Sluggula's name is "Nuranur" in italian and "Naranul" in spanish. Is Sluggula's japanese name Nuranuru?

Jeangabin 14:22, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm not actually Japanese, but I'll take a crack at it.
  • タートナック (Taato Nakku) could be short for "Turtle-Knuckle" or "Tart-Knuckle". It seems like a nonsense name.
  • As far as I can tell, "Degu" is a made up adjective that basically means "Big". It doesn't seem to have any basis in Japanese.
  • It's "ヌラヌール" (Nuranuuru). You can get the rest here.KrytenKoro 11:21, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah! Thank you very much ;) I've recently found that google can translate Japanese website!! Jeangabin 17:43, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Using numerals

Hello KrytenKoro. Thank you for you recent edits. In regards to the conflict on the Medal page, I've done a little digging and discovered a few things.

First of all, according to this article, rule number 3 indicates that experts do not agree on whether one should use numerals for numbers greater than nine. The first rule for writing numbers as indicated by the Grammar Book, which I cited earlier, is: "Spell out single-digit whole numbers. Use numerals for numbers greater than nine." The Chicago Manual of Style, which you cited, does use as a general rule the "zero through one hundred rule," though the very next link indicates that zero through nine is an acceptable alternative rule.

So basically it comes down to Zelda Wiki's Manual of Style (as this subject is indisputably stylistic, and not grammatical), and unfortunately, this topic is not addressed.

When these types of disagreements arise, where there is no "right answer," generally the best thing to do is gracefully acquiesce rather than create issues over something that can't be settled using facts alone. In this spirit, I'm obviously willing to let the matter drop, cuz it's not terribly important anyway. But in the future, you might find it beneficial to do a little more digging yourself and draw these sorts of conclusions when contradictory evidence is presented, rather than insist that your initial inclination was correct and enter into (what could potentially become) an edit war. Just a friendly reminder from someone who has been there herself! :)

Happy editing. Embyr 75  --Talk-- 15:59, 13 December 2011 (EST)

Hi again! I didn't mean to insinuate that what you did was wrong necessarily, not at all. Sorry if I came across that way. :( But in what I've observed, a situation will usually turn into something like: "Edit." "Undo edit, quote source." "Undo edit back, quote contradicting source." "Undo edit again, quote yet another source." And on and on and on. So what I usually do is make an edit, and if someone reverts my edit I'll immediately go into research mode rather than undo their reverting. It was more of sharing my findings and making a suggestion than a reprimand. :)
As for my source, it was the website of a published resource. But that's beside the point as we both agree. =) Also, I responded here because typically we try to keep conversations to one talk page. That way if other people run across the conversation they can follow it easily! See you around!! =) Embyr 75  --Talk-- 17:03, 13 December 2011 (EST)

Thanks for correcting mine and someone elses mistakened error but the link wasn't necessary.

I saw the link that you have posted and that was very unnecessary, the fact is that people make mistakes from time to time and it is no way necessary to link them to page filled with nonsense. You seem to know Japanese well, I know a bit of it and I'm still learning, besides, part of that post was not mine, I only added to it because part of it was already there in the trivia and it seemed to pertain to that trivia's part. Some translations in Japanese do interchange between the letters L and R, such as "Rinku" into "Link" or another one, "Kābī" into "Kirby". Thank you for the correction though and I have a question, theres a boss in FSA named Dagtail, is it the same thing as Molddorm or Degu Tail? --Vaati The Wind Demon 18:48, 9 January 2012 (EST)

Hyrule Historia

Hello, KrytenKoro! Just dropping in to say, thank you for going around the wiki and updating it with the information found in Hyrule Historia... Between that book and some SS pages still not done, the wiki is bursting with activity (which is always good :D)! I haven't been keeping up with the translated contents of that book, so I'm a bit useless in that regards. Keep up the great work! Dany36 20:55, 10 January 2012 (EST)

Thanks on the edit, KristenKoro! Wasn't quite sure where to place that info on the page.--Appliance (talk) 23:55, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Edit summaries

I happened to come across this edit of yours today, and I'd like to ask you to be a little more respectful in edit summaries. Someone took the time to write that page, and we should be glad the content is there at all, even if the wording is a little strange. That's all. Cheers!Justin(Talk) 20:02, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Implying that having red hair is what separates the Wind Tribe from "normal humans" (which is what the passage said) is wildly offensive.
Stating that something is worded extremely poorly to the point that it is offensive is not disrespectful of anything other than bigotry. I did not disrespect any editors, I pointed out that the phrasing they used was offensive because people need to learn to stop being offensive.
In addition, each edit made, ever, on any wiki, has the implicit message of "this needed to be fixed". I'll not go around telling editors they're bad people (which I don't see that I did), but it's dishonest to refuse to point out errors or pretend that the previous version of a paged edited was better, because if that was true, why the heck would it get edited?KrytenKoro 15:44, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
I didn't find it to be terribly offensive. We're talking about a fictional world filled with magic. Certain physical characteristics often differentiate races from one another (for example, the Hylians have pointed ears). As far as the edit summary, there's no need to get angry. No one wrote the page with the intention of being offensive. I'm sorry if you took offense to it, but I assure you it was unintentional. And it's perfectly fine to point out mistakes. That's part of what edit summaries are for is to explain the mistake you are correcting. I'd just appreciate it if you'd use a little more tact in your summaries.
Also, please keep conversations on the same page. I can easily see when you reply on here through my watchlist.Justin(Talk) 18:44, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Kryten, you're over-reacting. I wrote that sentence with identifying the Wind Tribe as a different phenotype, not to express some wild (and ironic) prejudice. Therefore, your inference is entirely subjective, so attempting to teach people in this instance "to stop being offensive" borders on--if not openly throwing itself into--the inane. I found the accusatory nature of your edit summary to be more insulting, simply because of a premature assumption correlating description of a fictional species to a real world stigma--one which surely doesn't exist in the Zelda universe, providing an ultimately minor issue more attention than it was ever worth. Quiet rectification and notice would have been more tact.
Surely, errors in choice may be made, but it is equally incorrect to handle it in such form. Please, express understanding towards editors when you choose to make corrections. - TonyT S C 19:15, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
  1. I made a half-jokey edit summary pointing out poor phrasing, and am being accused by multiple admins I don't remember ever having interacted with of attacking other editors for it. I am very much not the one overreacting.
  2. Your claimed intentions in writing the line are almost completely irrelevant, for the same reason that "I just meant the thing was stupid when I called it "gay", not that I hate homosexuals" doesn't float as an excuse anywhere in the world, ever. The fact of the matter is that the page portrays the main characteristic distinguishing the Wind Tribe from "humans" is that...they're gingers.
  3. I did not actually accuse anyone of real-world bigotry. I stated that the way the line was worded was massively offensive (not to mention factually incorrect, as Anju has red hair). Take for instance if you have Moblins that come in different shades, and the page specifically stated something like "There are black and brown Moblins. The black-skinned ones are evil and must be slain immediately." Sure, it's true in that black-skinned Moblins happen to be evil, but that's only because Moblins on the whole are evil (except for a few cases, but let's not get into that right now). I think it would be pretty clear to everyone that that line could was worded about as offensively as it could be, even if that wasn't intentional, and could stand to be corrected.
  4. Again, the claim that red hair is what separates the Wind Tribe from humans was just completely false to begin with, has nothing to do with what the game actually says, and that focusing on non-evidenced (in fictional case, non-explicit) phenotypes in order to distinguish groups is problematic on a whole 'nother level. Pointed ears are an actual physiological difference that is explicitly called out by the plot as an identified of Hylians, while red hair...occurs in almost every race of humans already, and separating the races by hair or skin color has already been thoroughly discredited (again, by the Hylia and Gerudo).
  5. I'm really having trouble seeing anything in that edit summary that was rude to an editor, and even if it was, it seems more benign than what is currently being posted on my talk page. I'll admit that I have a pretty high tolerance for offense and may not be spotting what I said that was so rude. Clarify for me, please, how you guys would have worded the edit summary to explain why the edit needed to be made while not hurting anyone's feelings.KrytenKoro 22:35, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Kryten, you are most certainly not the first person we've talked to about this kind of thing. I assure you, there are multiple precedents that include both editors and staff.

The Zelda Wiki staff places a very high value on positive attitude (namely open-mindedness and assuming good faith) when editing, hence this page. Justin did what he felt was necessary to preserve that standard. You don't have to agree with it; all that we ask is that you respect it. Likewise, we shall respect the justification of your edit, although we personally do not see offense in the original phrasing.

If you think I'm saying this to avoid further argument, then you're absolutely right. There's really no use fussing over this one edit summary, or Justin's response to it. I think it's a terrible waste of time and effort that could be put towards the betterment of the wiki. So let's please put this to rest and move on to more fruitful pursuits. — Hylian King [*] 22:27, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Sure, but I maintain that I don't see what was beyond the pale with my edit comment, so it's going to be difficult to make sure to avoid it in the future.KrytenKoro 14:05, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Of course. If the edit summaries become a recurring issue with us, then we'll have to revisit this discussion. If that happens, we'll have more than just one example to talk about. At that point, we'll be in a better position to discuss the matter.
No hard feelings, I hope! — Hylian King [*] 21:11, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Skyloft Theory

Hello. I just wanted to point something out about the edit you made to the Skyloft page. There was already a discussion (albeit a brief one) about the theory on the talk page, and it does apparently meet the Quality Standards. So, unless you object (in which case, let me know), I plan to put the theory back. Just wanted to let you know so it wouldn't seem like I'm being petty about it! :) Setras 15:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Autopatrol

Hey, KrytenKoro. Just letting you know that you've been bumped up to autopatrol. Figured it was high time; it must be years since your edits have needed patrolling, if ever. And you're the wiki's longest standing editor and all. :P

Hope you still have many years left in the tank! — Hylian King [*] 15:29, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks!KrytenKoro 18:38, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Low-Quality Trivia

I noticed your edit on the ReDead talk page, and I thought you might be interested in the Hyrule Castle page on tightening trivia quality standards. Here's a link. Champion of Nayru (talk) 18:29, 24 September 2013 (UTC)Champion of Nayru

Yo

Ah, a username I recognize in close proximity to a page I edited :). I know you're cool KK (remember me aye?) so I would appreciate a look see if you think this is worth keeping, and I'll acquiesce if you decide no. Drake Clawfang (talk) 05:57, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Lorule Castle/Throne Room

pardon me sir, but I have to speak my mind about this topic. please do not take this the wrong way, but your reasoning for keeping the two separate articles doesn't seem to be well-justified. are we supposed to make separate articles for every floor of hyrule castle's tower in alttp just because we see a new title or change of map? i just don't understand your reasoning, and i saw other users say they didn't see the need for two articles either. that is why i merged the two and added a subsection to the lorule castle article as a compromise. i would ask you to reconsider if for nothing else than the image of the wiki and the precedent it sets. you are setting a precedent that we would have to make separate articles for a host of different things that are, in most people's opinions it seems, not worthy of separate articles from their main topics. i don't even know what "sockpuppeting" is, but i can assure you i am trying to help find a compromise that everyone can live with. in my opinion, and the opinion of others, the throne room is not a separate dungeon (there is no additional dungeon map acquired, no additional item, etc) and it looks very silly trying to justify keeping it separate from the dungeon that it belongs to, which is lorule castle. can you give any better justification for keeping them separate? or if not, would you please stop reverting any kind of compromise measure? just because you think they are to be kept separate does not mean everyone else does, and please do not take that as any kind of personal attack, it's just the truth. TheLink7 (talk) 22:47, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Reply!

I think that's the only one, that's from last year, a more accurate translation would be Demonic Phantom Deity Bellum. Devil wouldn't be an accurate translation since Bellum has no devil traits in his design or characteristics and the word Majin/魔神 doesn't describe a type of "Demon Ruler", it describes a "Demon that brings misfortune." According to this, Majin/魔神 is a Malevolent Deity that brings calamity and disaster. http://kotobank.jp/jeword/%E9%AD%94%E7%A5%9E?dic=pje3&oid=SPJE04130200 and https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%AD%94%E7%A5%9E. --Vaati The Wind Demon (talk) 14:28, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Hope I'm not too late, but I remembered this from long ago and translated it.

《「ましん」とも》災いを起こす神。魔の神。悪魔。

(Majin) Spirits that cause calamities. Demonic Deities. Wicked Demons. --Vaati The Wind Demon (talk) 14:36, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Oh, because people usually translate it as "The Devil" or "Satan", in terms, they translate it as a type of Devil Ruler or Devil God, those terms I mentioned in the first sentence aren't accurate translations of Majin, because technically, it's describing powerful evil demons with a destructive purpose for disasters. Now I remember, the reason I changed it was to prevent that misunderstanding. I usually use Japanese based sites like kotobank.jp for the translation of words, since English based ones usually aren't really accurate at times since it's not from a Japanese based source. --Vaati The Wind Demon (talk) 16:17, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
I think you misunderstood, I said translating Majin/魔神 as "Thee Devil", like a "Demon Ruler", or "Satan" is inaccurate. A Majin/魔神 isn't a ruler, it's not a Sovereign of Demons/Devils, it's just a powerful demon/devil. Demon/Devil Rulers are Akujin/悪神, 邪神/Jashin, and/or Mao/魔王. --Vaati The Wind Demon (talk) 21:45, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
In my life through catholic school or even reading online, I've never heard or read anything about devils being gods, just sovereigns and/or rulers at that.. I'd like that, in note to avoid confusion, we should at least list a comment stating he isn't affiliated with the devil or satan, in fact, I did not know that devil could be another word for demon as a species. --Vaati The Wind Demon (talk) 22:07, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

the reversion...

I noticed that you reverted the Staldra page... Its actually similar, having multiheaded serpent that regenerate when chopped off and that the only difference is that the number of heads (which is 8..) is there too many difference more than the similar traits?Player1 (talk) 19:26, 16 January 2014 (UTC) (please answer in my talk page)

Edit war

Hey buddy, I noticed your edit war with Prince Ludwig. If he reverts it again, I'm sure he will be banned or something. Don't revert it immediately, just post add another post to the talk page telling why he is wrong. I'd hate for you to get temp banned for this. Champion of Nayru (talk) 23:08, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Excellent Quote

"For any given wiki, the wiki-wide ratio of content in the main articles to content in the trivia sections is directly proportional to the quality of the wiki." This needs to be a thing. I swear I hate it when there are more than, like, three trivia points, or if they have paragraphs. I wish others also believed this. Champion of Nayru (talk) 02:27, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Regarding phantom hourglass game 100% completion

Hi, I see that you are uploading this pic on the site: http://zeldawiki.org/File:PH_Inventory.png I was wondering on how you can get a full wisdom gem and jolene letter in your collection screen because what i know is, that jolene letter can only be received once and you need to use it to get a wisdom gem.

Here is some references i found on wiki just to make sure i'm not mistaken: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Jolene's_Letter and http://zeldawiki.org/Jolene's_Letter

Faucheur

I'm sorry, I misspoke in my edit summary. Faucheuse is the actual French term for the Grim Reaper. I believed this made a literal translation of the word redundant, which is why I removed the template.

In any case, récolteur and faucheur are essentially synonymous, except that faucheur refers to the use of a faux (scythe). For that reason I would say "reaper" is, given the context of the word, a more suitable translation of faucheur.

I've went ahead an added a full footnote explanation, so the template is no longer needed. I'll let you and others decide whether that's too much detail for Zelda Wiki. — Hylian King [*] 18:09, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Rogue Forces

Hey, Kryten. Could you tell me where you got the name "Rogue Forces" from the Keep article? - TonyT S C 21:05, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Blue forces are always called "Allied Forces", red "Enemy Forces", and yellow "Rogue Forces". These forces have additional names (such as Dark Forces, Midna's Forces, etc.) based on the specific story.
I got these names from the game.KrytenKoro (talk) 21:38, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Hey just quickly replying for Pakkun here. But you say that Rogue Forces are mentioned in-game. Where exactly is it mentioned? This is what we cannot figure out. I looked into the game myself, and all of the yellow forces are just called "Midna's Forces", "Ganondorf's Forces", "Ghost Forces", and so on. They state that in the battlefield info. -The Goron Moron (talk) 22:57, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
As an aside, could you please respond to talk page messages on the same page? - TonyT S C 23:19, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
When they join the battle, they are called "Rogue Forces". Check the Battle Log.KrytenKoro (talk) 00:56, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I do that. They are never called "Rogue Forces" in my battle logs. They've always been "Midna's Forces" and so on. Does your game happen to be PAL region? -The Goron Moron (talk) 01:06, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
No, it's NA.
Okay, try this. Go to the mission where you get the Luna Parasol (I believe it's the right one). It should be at the Palace of Twilight, where you have to rescue Lana and a Goron Captain while also siding with a Stalmaster. When the yellow forces appear on the battlefield, the notification will call them "Rogue Forces". All yellow forces are called "Rogue Forces" in the same manner.KrytenKoro (talk) 13:17, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I looked myself this morning, and apparently they are referred to as Rogue Forces, but only in Adventure Mode. Thanks. -The Goron Moron (talk) 18:29, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Templates

Hey. The wiki staff have noticed you have created several templates here on ZW. However most of them, including Template:Storylink, are really not necessary and some of them even break our pages' formatting. We appreciate the help by all means, but some templates we really don't need here. We'll probably be deleting some of them. If you have another idea for a template, it might be better to bring it up into the Discussion Center first before going ahead. I apologize if this is any inconvenient, but we really don't need some of these templates. -The Goron Moron (talk) 18:51, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

I've cleaned up the template code since the first revision, so that it is formatted similarly to the sitenotice. This should make it more aesthetical. As requested, I've posted explanations and requests for comment at the discussion center for the two templates I've created on this wiki. I will remember to go there for future template suggestions.KrytenKoro (talk) 19:38, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Sandbox edits

Hey, I kinda appreciate you wanting to incorporate my sandbox edits to the HW page. But see, that sandbox is my sandbox, and it was still under heavy construction. You could have at least waited first. -The Goron Moron (talk) 01:02, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

I Just Need To Ask

So I've been wondering about something ever since I first seen you on the Wiki, and I think its about time I just asked... Is your name based on anything? I have a British science fiction comedy in mind, but I thought I would kill the mystery with just a simple answer from you. :) ---Pixel TC 22:33, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

amiibo talk page

I don't know if you're aware of this or not, but I noticed you put an entire section on Super Mario Maker in the amiibo talk page. I'm not sure if this was intentional or mistakenly put on the wrong page. If you're trying to show an example of what could be done, then that content really should be put in a sandbox page, not on a talk page that is intended for discussion only. - Midoro (T C) 16:39, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Opinions on a project

So I've started working on something I've been thinking of doing for a while now, a User WIP of a page listing for the various different character portraits in the HW series. Having an opinion on it, as well as getting it up to wiki standard so it can be a mainstay page, could be appreciated. If you have any suggestions please put it here.

User Signature Errors

Hey there, I noticed you've been leaving a lot of messages on talk pages recently. I wanted to let you know that your signatures aren't working whenever you sign your post. Currently, it leaves it looking like this: "{{SUBST:KrytenKoroSig}}" and then the time. I think you're trying to copy other users signatures, but it's not working for you. Try typing ~~~~ which should automatically enter your signature based on your Signature Preferences. If you'd like a custom signature, you can create one at User:KrytenKoro/sig and User:KrytenKoro/sig2. Save whatever custom signature you want on the first sig page, and then on sig2, type this: {{:User:KrytenKoro/sig}} and save it. Then, at the bottom of preferences, enter {{:User:KrytenKoro/sig2}} and check the "treat signature as wikitext" box. Then, whenever you use ~~~~ it should use the custom signature. If you'd like an example, you can see my custom sig here which then turns into this: 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐜𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐤) 19:03, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

I am using tildes. I have it set up to do a sig template on other wikis, but either I haven't made it here yet or it was deleted (I can't remember, but I assume the latter). I can add the templates if you want.{{SUBST:KrytenKoroSig}} 15:11, 20 February 2022 (UTC)
Just for looks, it would be nice if you could add it in here. Although, it looks like it's trying to call KrytenKoroSig which would be in the mainspace instead of user space, so we don't want that for content reasons. If you are able to move it to User:KrytenKoro/sig, that would be great, but I'm not sure if preferences for signatures save locally or globally so if you changed it here it might change everywhere. (Also, please keep talk page messages on one page instead of multiple. I moved this from my own talk) 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐜𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐤) 15:44, 20 February 2022 (UTC)
They're done globally. Looks like an admin deleted the mechanisms I uploaded, so the signature still doesn't work. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I can't justify breaking my signature on every other wiki I edit just so that it will meet admin preferences on a single wiki.{{SUBST:KrytenKoroSig}} 19:14, 28 February 2022 (UTC)
