The Link bullets on the forums are back, whose fault is it this time? Twilightwizard0309 19:00, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

I been pointing them out for a while nopw. No one seems to care.--Mystic Monkey 19:08, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

I think it's because, other than being an eyesore, they don't really cause any trouble.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 19:11, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

I know what to replace them with... if I could.--Mystic Monkey 19:12, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

I understand that they are an odd thing to have at a Sonic wiki but they are not a eyesore, come on legend of zelda rocks

--Noname The HeroNoname standing final(Hero Talk)What you see is what you get, just a guy who loves adventure 19:25, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

But if I wanted Zelda, I'd go to a Zelda Wiki.--Mystic Monkey 00:32, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, they're fine on the Zelda Wiki, but we need a Sonic or Spindash or other Sonic related sprites for the Sonic Wiki.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 00:43, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Then how about a way to replace those little green elves then?--Mystic Monkey 08:08, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

No noe knows how to, thats the damn point!

--Noname The HeroNoname standing final(Hero Talk)What you see is what you get, just a guy who loves adventure 23:04, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Then an adventure I must take, to eight temples of Wiki to find the sacred coding to restore the land of SNN to it's former glory!--Mystic Monkey 23:11, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Awsome, but dont forget the your magic truffles that can make you fly

--Noname The HeroNoname standing final(Hero Talk)What you see is what you get, just a guy who loves adventure 23:14, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

GREAT! I'll grab my stuff!--Mystic Monkey 23:17, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

You go magic talking monkey who looks alot like a human.

--Noname The HeroNoname standing final(Hero Talk) What you see is what you get, just a guy who loves adventure 23:35, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Can we please keep on topic here?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 23:36, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Hmm... How can we help?--Mystic Monkey 23:38, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Is that what you want to get back on topic Kagimizu, or sould I say WaterFire-Seeya 'round

--Noname The HeroNoname standing final(Hero Talk) What you see is what you get, just a guy who loves adventure 23:42, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Zelda CDi references asside, I can look around the Wiki for forum related sites, if "mah boi" is there because of a template like feature then if I could find it I can correct it, perhaps replace it with a Sonic sprite.--Mystic Monkey 23:46, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Correction, it's FireWater, not WaterFire. Anyway, if the sprites are there cause of hacking, maybe we could hack it again, and put a Sonic related sprite.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 23:49, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Good news! I think I can do something about it! I found the page provide that provides interface text for this software, though it looks complicated and not much of a scripter, I think I know what is the cause of the little elves and can fix this! However I need someone to upload a sprite or something, perhaps a spinning ring or something. I think I know what I am doing so not 100% sure it will work.--Mystic Monkey 23:58, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah thats what I said right, oh sorry. well it could have been WaterFire if water was fire and fire was water. anyways Mystic give me the link to it

--Noname The HeroNoname standing final(Hero Talk) What you see is what you get, just a guy who loves adventure 00:02, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

What about a normal Sonic sprite? Or a spindash sprite? Or maybe even a Chaos Emerald sprite! Just giving ideas. Also, 'Kagi' is japanese for Fire, and 'Mizu' is japanese for Water.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 00:05, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Does it matter which? I can probably install it myself. The URL on line 38 on this page.--Mystic Monkey 00:06, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

I have tons of sprite sheets I can rip sprites from, but what should we replace with? Let's ask the community!(I made this poll)--Milotheechidna 00:07, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

It doesint matter we cant edit it, its blocked only admins can edit it or unblock it

An animated picture of a spinning ring!--Mystic Monkey 00:09, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Once we find out which one is most popular we can post another poll if they want moving or still. Anybody have a program to make a GIF???--Milotheechidna 00:12, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

I know plenty of sites with animated gifs that I can just save and upload here.--Mystic Monkey 00:14, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Okay. Let's leave this quiz open up to August 15th for a final vote. Then either you , me , or somebody else can create and/or write the code into the forums to fix this problem. YAY!!! This issue will be good for my resume!--Milotheechidna 00:17, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

It doesint matter we cant edit it, its blocked only admins can edit it or unblock it but I have found the data code we need to alter

Hello!--Mystic Monkey 00:21, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

I can edit it. SLJ left me Sysop and Head of Forums and even though I will be editing a page which is used to provide interface text for the software, it will be on my neck of the woods and believe best to make it less Zelda and more Sonic. And even though I prefer to go along with spinning ring, Milo's got a good point to ask what everyone else wants instead for it.--Mystic Monkey 00:41, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. It's not just us that are using forums. And I knew only people like Mystic could do it. Good eye for codes, Mystic!--Milotheechidna 00:55, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, been meaning to take up C++ myself. Anyway I still won't touch anything til the votes are counted.--Mystic Monkey 00:58, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Okay so let me get this straight Wikia uses C++ HTML Coding?--Milotheechidna 15:30, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

No, it goes by MediaWiki. C++ is MUCH more hard.--Mystic Monkey 15:33, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Well then, now that I know what it is, it's time to learn more codes. Dang it launchballer, how did you know how to make that odd template?! I wish I knew more codes to do that...--Milotheechidna 20:29, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

It looks easy to change Link into something else for me.--Mystic Monkey 21:09, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Chaos Emerald's winnin'--Milotheechidna 03:02, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Actually Shadow is winning. I prefer instead of actual faces or sprites, to go with very simple symbols, like Sonic's logo from Smash Bro's if Sonic wins.--Mystic Monkey 12:48, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Nvm then. GO SHADOW!!! Bye the way I saw Sonicrox14's talk page had a link to a website to a bunch of sprite animations (I think the link # was 12)--Milotheechidna 03:22, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

I still think a ring would be better since when people can check forums, the ring will be gone as if they collected it. But also it's a neutral and widely reconised Sonic icon.--Mystic Monkey 18:33, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

How did Shadow get so many votes, so fast?

If you feel trickery a foot, your not the only one. Not sure how to proove it though.--Mystic Monkey 23:34, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Mystic's right about not being able to prove anything. The polls, as i have learned, recognizes IP adresses and user's to where it will only allow you to vote once. As I can guess, and read throughout many articles, talkpages, etc. there are many shadow fans--Milotheechidna 01:28, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

But how is it possible that like, 6 Shadow supporters just happened to vote at the same time? Because a couple days ago, Shadow only had about 3 votes. Now look at it.

I think Staff, like mods, admins and such may have power to grant multiple votes. Dunno why, I only voted for Rings once and only once. Whoevers tipping the votes would make this unfair but can't really proove it. I say a do over only with symbols and icons than faces.--Mystic Monkey 11:55, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm on it:

An admin suspected foul play on the previous poll, so dooever: What icon/symbol sprite should we replace Link with???

The poll was created at 18:24 on August 14, 2009, and so far 26 people voted.

Please vote fairly!--Milotheechidna 18:26, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I taken down the previous one to prevent confusion... but what if it's one-sided again?--Mystic Monkey 20:02, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Then that means that there was nothing odd actually going on at all!--Milotheechidna 02:13, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

So whens closing date again?--Mystic Monkey 16:32, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Shadow wins.

As it appears, but I wanna know the poll count at exactly 19 August Mid-night if that is possible.--Mystic Monkey 18:58, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

BUMP!

Because by now I really think something should be done by now. So is it all agreed to go with Shadow or should the polls be reset so more recent members can vote. Personally I wouldn't go with a character, not even Sonic. Just an item box or a ring etc. But still I think I know how to change the icons and will comply with whatevers been voted on.--Mystic Monkey sez 04:10, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Eh, a character might not be a good idea. Personally, I'd go with the Master Emerald.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 04:15, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

How about we pop the poll again, only this time with a selection of items. Might as well include Sonic's face being this a Sonic wiki.--Mystic Monkey sez 04:18, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Go for it.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 04:43, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

I did a look over and found the exact coding thats cusing the links. We need an image the same size of the links. Hay monkey! Do you want me to show you the place were the problem is? Or would you have trouble knowing what to do?

Also I want a ring icon!

I think I once found the page wih the error long time ago, just thought best to leave it til a decission. If you can quick-link me that be great. I was thinking a Sonic 1 monitor with a ring in it and when people have checked over a forum, the monitor will appear broken.--Mystic Monkey sez 21:22, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Anyway. A list of exactly what to vote for would be nice. My suggestions are Sonic's face and a spinning gold ring.--Mystic Monkey sez 01:57, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

On the contrary, Mystic, we've apparently done "lists" twice. I'd say just put in a replacement now (like a ring), get people's attention, and then... put up another poll...--Milotheechidna 14:02, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah alright. I'm done with politics. Can someone upload me a spinny-ring I cna use or something?--Mystic Monkey sez 22:45, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

The deed is done

I changed the little green elf into a spinning ring. Was it sucsessful?--Mystic Monkey sez 09:58, March 12, 2010 (UTC) Template:58SlugDrones!

Crap, I don't see a change. I hate this since I changed the exact URL Iam sure Link was at. knowing not much of a change, it feels like I just gave this forum a tiny tumour or something.--Mystic Monkey sez 10:00, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Template:58SlugDrones!

Wait-wait-wait I got it! You need to refresh to make it work:
  • Internet Explorer: hold down the Ctrl key and click the Refresh or Reload button, or press Ctrl+F5.
  • Firefox: hold down the Shift key while clicking Reload; alternatively press Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl-Shift-R.
  • Opera users have to clear their caches through Tools→Preferences
  • Konqueror and Safari users can just click the Reload button.
  • Chrome: press Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5

It didn't work at first because I forgot to refresh the MediaWiki page. It's working for me now.--Mystic Monkey sez 10:07, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Somepony uploaded a new "ring" sprite which is why the spinning rings around the forum have changed.--Mystic Monkey Sez 14:53, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
