Some of your signatures[edit]

I have an issue. Particularly your binary, hex, morse-code themed signatures take up a ton of space, have repetitive characters, and make it more unnecessarily difficult to identify you. It is disruptive (and I have a difficult time reading pages when those signatures do show up) and I think it's a good idea to remove them from your signature roulette. --It's-a me, 010011000110010101100110011101000111100101000111011100100110010101100101011011100100110101100001011100100110100101101111! 05:50, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

What, you can't understand plain hexadecimal? :P I wasn't too big on those ones anyway, so I removed them. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 05:55, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Nah, I can't. I spent most of my high school years as half-dead marabou stork food and I spent most of my life after that being melted into a video game console but without understanding how computer programming works. I know, laugh at me. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 05:58, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
I don't think nearly anybody has the time or energy to memorize the hexadecimal values of each ASCII character so they can read it, including computer programmers. I know I don't. I do know quite a bit about the inner workings of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Mario World due to my extensive modding of both, but otherwise I'm pretty much clueless about how console games work, so I won't laugh at you. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 06:03, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Cool, you mod Brawl too? I have a few mods on BrawlVault, but they were created when I was a teenager. I do mainly character skins (as most people do) but I love moveset, voice, and music mods. I haven't done Super Mario World ROM hacking though, though I have played with New Super Mario Bros. Wii modding. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 19:55, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I've never finished a complete mod, though, as I tend to slowly stop doing it and then forget where I left off months later. I think I've started working on 3 or 4 at this point. I've made a few character skins and I'm working on a program that edits the non-FighterConfig BrawlEx files (if you've ever played with BEX) in a less technical manner, removing all the hexadecimal editing from the mix. I've tried doing moveset mods, but PSA is impossible to understand even with tutorials. Super Mario World has a slew of tools available, my favorite resource being SMW Central, and a great level/overworld editor called Lunar Magic. I've considered modding NSMBW but never really got around to it. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 21:29, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
I've never worked much beyond Character skins and I don't think I've used BrawlEX because I rely primarily on Riivolution for mods, and I think there are compatibility problems with SDHC cards otherwise. I sadly haven't done Super Mario World stuff, but I do know about Lunar Magic (it makes Super Mario Maker look limited if I recall). The most level editing I've done was this one stupid level in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and played with Super Mario Bros. X level editor. I don't think level editing is really my thing though. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 20:10, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
Ah, yeah, I've always used Gecko since I got into Brawl modding with Project M and I think it didn't support Riivolution, at least when I first downloaded it in 2014. I actually got Super Mario Maker for Christmas and, while it's really fun and more polished than Lunar Magic, the latter is definitely far more powerful, since you can add new enemies, bosses, music, overworlds, and change the palettes and graphical effects. It has a bit of a learning curve, though, whereas with Mario Maker you can just jump right in, and since its main focus is level editing, you might not enjoy it as much as I do. Designing overworlds in it is also enjoyable, I spent at least 20 hours building and refining mine, and that's before adding the events for when levels are completed. I've played a few SMBX mods, but I never tried using the editor since I felt like Lunar Magic fulfilled all my needs on that front. On the other hand, you can't have 128 Marios (Mario? Marii?) at the same time in LM, so it's kind of a difficult decision. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 22:47, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
While I'm here, I'll just point out: no, I haven't memorised them, but they're easy to work out if you know what you're doing. Without referencing anything, I can tell you "K" is 0x4B, or 01001011. —Kazitor, pending 11:28, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Some help.[edit]

Would you mind helping me reformat ref 5 on the Creativity Movement article? Comrade GC (talk) 20:18, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

@GrammarCommie You could just use Citation Machine or EasyBib instead of {{cite web}}. I have no idea how to use that template. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 20:20, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
@Spriggina No worries I figured it out (after many "minor" edits). Comrade GC (talk) 23:36, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Easybib is a great resource! Extremely useful for essay writing in. Convenient when editing a Wiki page. Nerd (talk) 00:39, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I have no idea how to actually manually cite anything in any format because EasyBib exists. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 01:29, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
Let's be honest here. Being able to manually cite your sources is not a particularly insightful exercise. Different people or organizations prefer different standards. This is a job best left to machines. As long as you do not plagiarize, and know (how to find) the necessary details, you are fine.
@GrammarCommie Not sure if you noticed this but you can preview your changes. Nerd (talk) 00:57, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

{{new age text}}[edit]

What you had was pretty poor. Not trying to insult you, but you might want to improve your template-fu before making any templates official. Or just get someone else to have a look over them first. —Kazitor, pending 11:23, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Since that template was overcomplicated garbage before you fixed it, I decided I'll stop manually writing templates and create a program to semi-automatically do it instead, kind of like Scratch. It'll probably end up taking more net time, but at least my templates won't require heavy revisions from you and/or other wiki experts, as with both this and {{cf}}. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 19:08, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure how well a program can handle that... oh well, do whatever you want. —Kazitor, pending 21:14, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
Obviously it won't work for the more complicated stuff, but most of the templates I've made are either userboxes or text formatting things, and those should be easy enough to implement into the interface I have in mind. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 21:49, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Reply from Darthmaul[edit]

The translations are based upon the findings of Brigitte Bauer, Giuliana Fiorentino, Andrew Garrett, Kenneth Shields, Sarah R. Rose, John Hewson, Vít Bubeník, Societas Linguistica Europaea, Luca Panieri, A. M. Lubotsky, and both Kortlandt and the Leiden school (to a lesser extent). It is a reconstructed form of the Early Indo European isolating stage, though more accurately called Pre-IE, before inflections.

Wow, that's pretty awesome. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 15:41, 27 January 2018 (UTC)


I am 300% sure you'll leave it within a couple weeks just like the other one did. 𝔊𝔬𝔞𝔱-𝔈𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔤𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔡𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔡𝔬𝔪/𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰) 05:43, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

300% sure, eh? Does bypassing that destroy the universe? Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 15:23, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Nah. 𝔊𝔬𝔞𝔱-𝔈𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔤𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔡𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔡𝔬𝔪/𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰) 16:56, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
That's too bad. I was looking forward to being the most powerful being in the universe for an instant. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 17:45, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

The block function[edit]

Use it. Why are you wasting your breath to trolls? --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 15:34, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

I'm not going to block him since I imagine he's still on T-Mobile with a dynamic address, but I'll stop engaging. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 15:37, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
Won't hurt nothing if you at least force the person to stfu for a little while. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 15:40, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
While I am out for a bit, can you use the troll collapse template for the conversation in the KyleTroll talk page? I am editing from mobile at the moment, too much of an arse to deal with. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 15:44, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

You are hereby invited...[edit]

Bre Faucheux edits[edit]

My apologies. I just thought they were note-worthy enough to keep (I did read your description of the edit, though). I'll admit that your edit did kinda feel like a bit of a whitewash, so that's why I undid it. But I do get your point and I won't undo the edit again. — Unsigned, by: Tmil96 / talk / contribs

@Tmil96 That's okay, I understand. Thanks for explaining. Spriggina (cuộc nói chuyện) (đóng góp) @ 16:53, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
