It actually shows the two biggest categories. Since English folklore is so vivid, it happens to have more creatures than the others at the moment. And we've done a lot in the Dragon's Maw is all. Methinks adding to creatures from the other templates would move those categories up. Alternatively, a SysOp could try to figure out the MediaWiki page for the menu. I know how, but it's hard to explain.

This has nothing to do with the wiki but still, this guy has just saved the whole of the U.S.A. The next day he's at his house, he looks out the window and sees a brand new Farrari. He goes out and there's a letter on the Farrari saying to Riley Poole, which was his name. At the bottom it said, from the president. So, he jumps in and because he hasn't got a licence and he's only 16 he reverses it into his house. I was thinking I wonder what it's like having a Farrari half way through your kitchen wall?!

I don't want an edit war over a petty little thing like that. I only put it on here so Icould tell everyone quicker. Especially no edit wars on the main page's talk page. We need to make this wiki look good. Now, for a little announcement, and I hope everyone sees this. I don't know if everyone has seen the page on Marmite but I think the users on this wiki (no names mentioned *stares at Armageddon11*) have gone to far. I introduced this wiki intending it to be about mythical creatures but making an article about marmite???!!! And Adolf Hitler??!! I think this should stop now, A11 you've had your little joke about now so lay off the marmite and go to bananas. (kidding, don't make an article on bananas. I won't be here at the weekend so I entrust 1st and A11 to look after the wiki while i'm away. I also thank everyone for contributing to our total of 80 articles. An idea popped into my head last night that we should make pages with the beginning of Content: or User:(user's name)/(article name).

No offense to the Spore Wiki (as there is probably a reason they do it), but I disagree with a Content namespace. The mainspace (which begins with either nothing or just a :) is the space where we've put content. It would be a hassle to type eight extra characters before every single page name.

Wiki skinEdit

Hi, can you see the new skin i put on the wiki?! I think i might change it to something better in my preferences but i'm only experimenting at the moment. But do you like it? I don't know if this is true but i think only admins can change the skin--Dinomino21 08:35, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

You changed the skin YOU'RE using, not everyone else. I'm still using the default skin. And yeah that skin is kinda good, I saw it when I went on your account to test if I really did know your password(which I do). Any user can change the skin to which one they want to see.

Master Templater - Best to run away for now. Maybe you can handle them later.
TALK - 13:41, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
If an admin goes to the bottom of the Skin tab in Preferences, they can change the default skin. It still has to be some sort of Monaco, though. Of course, a lot of things fall in that range. Have a look at the custom skin I built for the Rammstein Wiki.

A11, i would appreciate it if you told me how you found out my password. And it would be safer for you to stay out of my account unless you want to be banned for account fraud. Thank you. --Dinomino21 16:44, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

TALK - 20:09, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Since there's already a section called "Wiki skin," I'll put this here.

I think that Gaming is a poor choice of default skin. While I can understand the reasons for a user to like it, it makes some functions, especially in page histories, difficult to use. While I can simply change my own skin preferences and not deal with it, I assert that anonymous users and users who sometimes edit logged out (which I have found reason for on occasion) cannot do so.

Wikia frowns upon admins who protect the main page of a wiki. There is absolutely no reason to do so unless it is already a frequent target of vandalism. This wiki isn't even big enough for that sort of vandalism yet.

I know but just to be sure. I am a tad on the overprotective side, it runs in the blood. Once someine was threatening one of my mates and i told him to stop and i got the pain.Dinomino21 20:14, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I did use the preview button, and it showed up as normal!

and when I had saved the page, it was normal, then I went somewhere, and then back here, and then it was like that!

and as you can see here, I just font colored the text! it should not cause this!

AdvertisingEdit

Ok, I was luling it over last night and i've finally came to the decision that this wiki needs to be advertised. So, if there are any users here, then I would appreciate it if you could do a guy a favour by adverising this wiki on every other wki you are on. It would be very much appreciated. Therefor we will get much more people here which will lead to:

more admins,

more articles,

more people,

more high-traffic pages,

more publisity. and much much more. So please, for me, plaes advertise on every wiki you are on. It would be of great help. the link to this wiki is www.monster.wikia.com or: [1]

Dinomino21 over and out.

CTHULHU!!!! Edit

Okay if you know I am a huge supporter of Cthulhu. We should have a wiki page 4 him cuz well, he's a monster!!!! he even has his own plushie!!!

NEW MONSTER WIKIEdit

Since the administrators of this wiki have been absent for so long, vandals and trolls have been coming here and laying this wiki to ruin. And because the admins aren't around to give anyone of us responsible users the authority to delete all the garbage that's been posted here, I believe it's time to jump ship and start over, which is exactly what I've done.

I've created a new wiki page to replace this one: Monsters & Creatures Wiki. With the amount of free time I currently have, I should be around often enough to lay down the law in case the jerks who've ruined this site decide to do the same to the new one. If you want to come and contribute, be warned: I might get a bit totalitarian at first when it comes to what should or shouldn't be on there (the trolls here can be thanked for that), but hopefully we can make the new site much more friendly and presentable than this one's turned out to be.

Also, if anyone's interested, I could use some help building up my other wikis as well.Devo DrakeFox (talk) 17:09, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
