Welcome to MiiWiki!

Hello there, Moses Sin, and welcome to MiiWiki, a wiki on all things Mii! Please be sure to read our policies before editing. We also have a Discord server that you can join by clicking here. If you need any help, please contact one of the administrators.

Plagiarism on Wii Play

Regarding your recent edits to Wii Play, they were undone due to them being copy-pasted from Wikipedia. Copy-pasting without attribution is both plagiarism and a copyright violation, and copy-pasting mainspace articles to or from any wiki is a generally bad practice even if it's attributed. ---PinkYoshiFan 17:40, 6 February 2024 (UTC)

FIle Names

Hello. Just want to let you know that this page states that mainspace file names should always begin with an abbreviation of the game they are from. This is especially to help differentiate from different Mii games that use the same concepts. The Jacketed Terrapin (talk) 16:47, 15 February 2024 (UTC)

Reminder to follow the naming standards of images, as you're still not marking the images you're uploading with the respective game abbreviation (e.g. Nintendo Land-related images should always start with "NL" followed by the subject of the image).
Additionally, typo redirects (or any redirect that isn't wanted) should not be left blank, and instead should be marked with the deletion tag (which is {{delete|*insert deletion reason here*}}), just make sure to put the tag before everything on the page. Thanks. The Jacketed Terrapin (talk) 14:30, 16 February 2024 (UTC)

File sourcing

Please do not post mobile versions of YouTube links for your sources. Please ensure that all links go to standard YouTube. This can be done by requesting the desktop view, or pressing Share instead of the URL. Furthermore, YouTube images are generally not within fair use and shouldn't be uploaded unless absolutely no alternative exists. Please do not continue uploading YouTube images further.

Similar vein here, please make sure your source links are truncated in general. Having tracking data or search text appear (as was the case with recent Nookipedia uploads) is not a good practice. In most circumstances, anything that writes out sentences of text in a URL or seems to have a tracker (stuff after a &) can be erased and the link goes to the same place. Test it if not certain. Trig - 04:07, 14 March 2024 (UTC)
Thirdly, please please please do not use Fandom as a file or text source. Use of these sources for box art or any other content is an active detriment to the site. If you need alternative places to look, please consider The Cover Project, Mobygames, The Gaming Alexandria, Video Games Museum, or in the event of sprites/icons, Video Game and Sprite Database. Please exercise more scrutiny in the uploads you are making overall. YouTube uploads or random website screengrabs are often poor quality and it is preferred to have good looking files over temporary, low quality ones. Trig - 15:01, 19 March 2024 (UTC)

Moved files

Heads-up that when you move files and create a redirect, you should add the {{delete}} template to the redirect instead of just blanking it. ---PinkYoshiFan 14:56, 15 March 2024 (UTC)

Unnecessary file uploads

Heads-up that several of your recent file uploads (in particular the Mario Party 8 minigame icons) have been unnecessary due to being completely outside of the wiki's coverage. Files should only be uploaded if there's a plan to use them somewhere on the wiki, and that should only happen if it's part of a Mii game or a part of a game that covers Miis. (For example, the Mario Party 8 minigame icons are neither because it's not a Mii-focused game and Miis aren't playable in any of those minigames.) ---PinkYoshiFan 18:23, 26 March 2024 (UTC)


Hi. I want to have an interview with you, since I’m curious about you. If you have any social media any let me know via the Email user feature that shows up when someone edited your page. If you want to do the interview on my talk page that’s fine with me Benjydenjy (talk) 21:35, 9 April 2024 (UTC)

Regarding plagiarism again

Regarding the Miitopia files you uploaded recently, they have all been deleted due to all being plagiarized directly from Miitopia Fandom. Plagiarism of any kind is completely unacceptable here, in particular with files and other wikis. ---PinkYoshiFan 02:08, 30 April 2024 (UTC)

Reminder of this, as you uploaded five Miitopia screenshots that were directly lifted from the Miitopia Fandom wiki. Here are the links to the Fandom screenshots in question:
  1. Relationship levels 2-4 image
  2. Relationship levels 5-9 image
  3. Relationship levels 10-19 image
  4. Relationship levels 20-29 image
  5. Relationship levels 30-99 image
Not only were these files uploaded to the Fandom wiki over 6 years ago by two different users, but all of them were scaled up from their original resolution, which only worsens the quality. I also noticed that the files' sources state that you ripped the screenshots on your own, when the evidence I provided suggests otherwise.
Just to reiterate the page PinkYoshiFan linked, screenshots should only be uploaded if they are your own (as long as they are of high quality) or are official screenshots from Nintendo, so please avoid uploading screenshots from third-party sources (the page outright emphasizes other wikis as an example of where not to get screenshots from).
