  • LaVey what are you doing, why are you putting enemy articles: Greeder, Ledder singular ? These enemies appear in infinite numbers they are supposed to be plural.

    • I'm not discussing this any longer. It honestly has become quite annoying taking the time to start an article in singular, just so the next day someone else changes it to plural, just so the next day it's changed back to singular again, and so on, with no sign of it ever stopping.

      All this unnecessary edit warring has been taking precious time I could rather have used to add more content to pages.

  • I'm impressed with what you did to the Contra Wiki! You must have added some new changes here. Am I right, LaVey?

    • Hello Jahmir, thanks for writing.

      You're right, the wiki was almost abandoned and in terrible shape. See, I'm also an administrator at the Castlevania Wiki, and on that site's Discord server we ended up planning on adopting this site. One of our users stepped up to adopt it, but most likely due to lack of spare time, I ended up doing it instead.

      The Castlevania Wiki Discord server has since become "Konami Classics", and there I have been able to meet lots of fans of classic Konami franchises, such as Gradius and Ganbare Goemon.

      Feel free to join us sometime; just click on the "Connect" button on the Discord widget on your right.

      Regards.

  • On the Robotech wiki they name badges after various (often lighthearted) things from the series(like badges for edits on episodes from the Masters arc are references to things that happen in the arc). They also have images from the series relating to said event/badge. Think we could get something like that for this wiki? Just an idea I had to make things more fun for the fans.

    • Sounds good. I've been pounding my head trying to come up with names for the pictures-related badges ("Snapshot", "Paparazzi", "Collector", "Decorator", "Designer", etc.).

      I need 8 badge titles in total. Their pictures are also hard to add, because most of the times I've tried, they don't fit well on the circular star shape of the badge.

      If you can give me some names and images, I'll see what I can do.

    • I was thinking naming some badges after bosses or thing from the games in order of chronological or game order. Maybe stuff like Triumvirate would be for higher edits than Red Falcon or Sniper. Or names them after the games in order of release like the lower ones would be the original games and the higher ones would be the newer games. Or naming them after the levels in games like "the 1st wall" or "hallway level" or "branching path"(from Hard Corps). Maybe thinks like "that impossible boss" or "only using the pea shooter" for higher rank things?

    • Sounds like a good idea. I will bring the topic to discuss it with the other users and see if we can do something about it.

      Regards.

  • Hey, LaVey

    I'm the owner of the Contra fan site, Contra Encyclopedia. I think this wiki is coming along really well and glad to see your interest in taking it over, among other Konami games.

    I was wondering if there's any other way I can contact the user RedBlackFalconViper, who hasn't contributed since December. He provided some really cool game logos for the main page, and I was hoping to get some help from him.

    Thanks

    • Of course, and thanks for writing.

      There's actually a funny story behind this: As some people may know, I'm also an administrator at the Castlevania Wiki, and not long ago we opened an official Discord server in there. It was there where I met RedBlackFalconViper (RBFV).

      The Contra series didn't take long to surface in that server, and I asked RBFV if he would be interested in adopting this wiki as it was in a terrible state and pretty much abandoned. He agreed and started to fulfill the requirement for adoption. However, it seems he had very little free time and in the end I ended up asking for adopting it myself.

      Shortly after the adoption, RBFV was kind to redesign the main page with all the game logos. However, as far as I know, all of them were found via Google Image Search and none was actually made by him.

      If you still want to contact him, you are more than welcome to join the Castlevania Wiki Discord server, where he goes under the name of "Revolver". Unfortunately, he has not been seen since many weeks ago, most likely due to work and/or life affairs, but you can drop him a message and see if he answers.

      Good luck and have a nice day.

      Regards.

    • Thanks, I'll try to reach him there. I only think he made the logos (or at least some of them) because I can't find them anywhere else, really, and especially the one for Contra Evolution. That seems to have requried a lot of work to isolate the words in the game title like that, especially since the title screen had a glow effect over it.

    • I found that one through Google and there's a big possibility it is not even official. However, in the end I thought it was better to put it on the main page to let users find that game more easily.

  • Amazing job with this wiki yo

  • You been doing a great job with this wiki! I just made a new wordmark which you can use: https://i.imgur.com/eNlzxef.png

    By the way, since the front page has a affiliates section, you could add both the Metal Slug wiki and Gradius Wiki (I'm the admin of both), and I'll add this one on those. Since you're an admin on the castlevania Wiki you could add the Gradius Wiki there as well.
