Revision as of 18:52, January 4, 2017

Hi !

I'm a French fan of Tintin and I would like to know who are the Admins of this wiki that is very well for me !

Indeed, I would like to create the "same" wiki but in French of course !

Thank you !

{{SUBST:Utilisateur:Cel62/autosig}} 10:06, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for such a slow response. I am now an admin for this wiki so I will be able help you much better. I don't know if it is possible to automatically translate a wiki, so you may have to create one from the beginning in French. I've never created a wiki from scratch before, but check out Community Central, they would surely have the information you need. There is already a Portugese wiki on Tintin located here.

Good luck! Kiwichris 22:41, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Adoption

Hi. Your contributions look great and I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (taklk)@fandom 01:49, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks so much for this, I promise to put these positions to good use. Kiwichris 04:20, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

Just asking

I was just wondering, other than you, who are the administrators here? PeculiarManiacalFella 09:44, March 17, 2012 (UTC) (profile)•(talk)•(email) 03:25, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
I can't really remember. None of them have been active for years. I'm pretty much the only one keeping an eye on the place nowdays. Kiwichris 10:49, March 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hello again, I was just thinking, I think this wiki would benefit from having chat added, as it allows users to see who else is here, and it also allows people to communicate better. Sorry if I sound like I'm trying to take over, I guess I'm too used to being an administrator. --PeculiarManiacalFella 06:14, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

I can see your point. Just one question about it though; Can it be moderated and posts deleted? I've seen this abused before and go about wrecking other wikis before. If it can be controlled then I'll add it. Kiwichris 06:26, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure about the deleting posts thing, but you can ban users from chat and create chat moderators. So yes, I'm sure it can be controlled.

Link in Nushka's page

Hello Admin of Tintin,

I'm here to leave you a message about a certain link in Nushka's page.

I went to the link and it was a fan made music video. Are you allowed to have fan things in this wiki?

I just wanted to know because you may want to delete it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by WhitePinoy (talkcontribs) 00:22, May 22, 2012

Hi there. To answer your question bluntly, no. Fan material is not allowed this wiki, it is only for official information/images only. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I have since removed the link as suggested. Kiwichris 00:29, May 22, 2012 (UTC)
Hi, the organization and music of the video was fanmade but I believe the scenes and video clips itself were actually from the movie. It was the only place I could find clips and I was listing the source of the pics at the time.
I was wondering, I noticed a lot of the screens from the film which depicted the characters (had organized a gallery on Nushka's page) were deleted with reason being 'housekeeping'. Are we not allowed to have multiple pics of a char? How do we decide how many someone gets? +Yc 02:56, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
The page just looked extremely cluttered to me with all those pics (some of which were only a frame or two later than others) so It just seemed like overkill. This site doesn't have a "limit" per se on pics per page (to date), It's just down to common sense. Most character pages are only one paragraph long, so the picture in the infobox is all that is really needed. Like Nushka's page, for example, with its grand total of three sentences! Perhaps if more decent information was added to the page it wouldn't look as bad (hint hint).
I guess what I'm trying to say is that there probably shouldn't be more pictures on the page than written information. An exception would be characters with different identities like on General Alcazar, or Roberto Rastapopoulos' page. The same can be said of different media portrayals like on Thompson and Thomson's page which has pictures of their depiction in The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn and Asterix in Belgium. Nushka's page has this too showing one picture each of her from both the movie and comic, which is fine. Kiwichris (talk) 05:07, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Irrelevant Page

Someone created this completely irrelevant page: Winnie The Pooh Movies, I just thought I should let you know. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing

Thanks for telling me. The page has been deleted. This isn't the first time we've had trolling here. A while back all these pages about Donald Duck were created here for some ungodly reason. I will block the user as well.
Thanks Kiwichris (talk) 02:48, August 2, 2012 (UTC)


Hello, I know you're the administrator here, but I think we should get rid of the individual year pages and instead put all of the events into a single page. Seeing as most of the year pages don't have much content, it would probably be more organised that way. Thanks for listening. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 05:12, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

I see your point (and feel your pain) but the important thing to remember is that just because a page doesn't have a large amount of content doesn't mean there is nothing to fill it with. There is a lot of other relevant information that can go in the year pages (hint hint to all the other users out there...). Kiwichris (talk) 07:05, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
I messed around a bit with the stub template. I hope you don't mind.User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing07:03, August 20, 2012 (UTC)
Looks good, nice work! Keep it up! Kiwichris (talk) 09:57, August 20, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. But there are still some empty pages, such as 2002. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing

Martine Vandezande

Take a look at this: "She is also a very close infact allmost Tintin`s Girlfreind in the first time she appeared she met Captian Haddock."

I thought I should tell you that I deleted it since "in Yves Rodier's version, Martine is depicted as a red-headed assistant with glasses. At the end of the book, she asks Tintin to meet her parents" and I was kind of at a loss (I have to admit I haven't finished reading Alph-Art). User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 06:43, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Reporting Cussing

Very weird and rude

I wonder why this quiet wiki has so many trolls


Do you suppose someone could delete the empty year pages/stubs now? My original idea was to mark the empty ones as stubs, and wait and see if anyone had any information to put in. Since most of them are still empty now I think they should be deleted. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 15:03, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. Go ahead and delete them if you wish. Kiwichris (talk) 22:17, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Ok you must be crazy cause i never edited anything on that page, all i did was comment.

What are you talking about? Kiwichris (talk) 23:12, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

What? Oh, and sorry, er, I can't delete them, since I'm not an administrator. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 16:02, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

lol, I noticed that typo a while ago! I've deleted a bunch of blank year pages and think I got them all, but if I missed any let me know.
P.S. I know that post without a sig wasn't you, and I have no idea what it's about! Kiwichris (talk) 23:08, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

You only missed 2013. By the way, I think that user (Rampy) was just confused because of that automatic message that everyone gets when they make their first edit. Her first edit was just a comment so I think she didn't get why "you" were thanking her. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing

I see. I just thought I'd leave 2013 because its just over two months away, and therefore, all but inevitable that it will be re-created soon anyway :) Kiwichris (talk) 07:16, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I see. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 15:05, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Another idea

About the header with the random page button and all that, maybe you could add an "All Pages" option? I think it'd be rather convenient. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 13:50, October 25, 2012 (UTC)


Thank you so much for the admin rights. I sincerely promise that I will not abuse them. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing 02:43, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there,

Just wondering if it is possible to change the title of an article? Or do you need to be an admin to do that? Thanks! 00:33, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

I don't think you need to be an admin to do so IIRC. What article needs renaming anyway? Kiwichris (talk) 00:38, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

I just thought you could give "Wladir river" a capital on the "r" (Wladir River). 03:05, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

Ask and ye shall recieve: Wladir River : ) Kiwichris (talk) 06:03, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

G'day mate

I was having a bit of trouble uploading a picture. The info-box still says "Please add a picture!" even after I have.

Count von Anonymous (talk) 05:09, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hi there. I've added the pic for you. Noy sure why it wouldn't have worked for you though. Did you upload it via the "Please add a picture!" link? If that iwas the case it might be in need of fixing. Kiwichris (talk) 05:51, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I did try the add-a-picture link, but it didn't work.

Thanks! : )

Interesting. I'll take a look at it and alert other admins. Thanks for pointing this out. Kiwichris (talk) 05:59, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

Odd. The link didn't work for me, either, when I experimented on my profile page. It just goes to the image's page once the picture is uploaded. The image did show, however, when I used source mode to write the necessary bits in myself. I think we'll all just have to insert it manually via source mode for the time being, if the link goes faulty, of course. I have no idea what's wrong, to tell the truth. So it worked for you? User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing

I've edited Community Messages, to add a bit telling everyone to refrain from referring to the characters as fictional. I thought I should let you know. You can edit it if you feel the need to. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing

Hey please help me with my Pollution wiki


Dude my dog (talk) 07:49, March 3, 2013 (UTC)

I think you should make Badges with an image and a achievement like, 1 edit or 1 added image and you get points for them.

Thanks, 5oo93

P.S tell me if you like the idea

Badges and Achievements

It might not be too bad an idea, but I've heard that badges and achievements might cause some users to make nonsense/bad edits in order to earn the aforementioned, and hence that might backfire on the wiki. On the other hand, it might be good. Hm. User:PeculiarManiacalFella/thing

Thanks for making badges

Redirect Name

Is there a way to delete a redirect for an article?  In the article Bird BrothersGustav Bird has his own page while Max bird is just a redirect of Bird Brothers.  I thought that I could create a new article for Max Bird, but then Gustav Bird does not redirect to Bird Brothers.  If you can do anything about it, it would make things a lot easier.

Thanks, Jabbafan4 (talk) 20:34, July 1, 2013 (UTC)

New Heading

May I ask permission to add a new heading with appearance in each article about a character?  It doesn't seem right to put the description of appearance in the beginning of the article or leave it out completely so may I ask permission to add a new heading in each article?  Jabbafan4 (talk) 16:43, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Could you elaborate further so I can fully understand the query? Kiwichris (talk) 08:09, July 27, 2013 (UTC)


Is the list of curses in Article: Captain Archibald Haddock really necessary if there is a whole article for his curses? Jabbafan4 (talk) 16:45, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

Template: Real World

Is there a way you can make Template:Real World on the left side of the article instead?  The template sqeezes the picture underneath of it giving it a bad effect. Thanks, Jabbafan4 (talk) 17:07, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but it is standard practise for all templates like that to be alligned to the right to allow text tho start at the very beginning of the page (left to right). Pictures can easily fit beneath the template. Kiwichris (talk) 08:17, July 27, 2013 (UTC)

Picture problems

Hello. I'm here to add some pictures to make a gallery, on the Tintin page for example. I tried to add some pictures that I added on the Tintin page, and added some captions, but it appears that I predicted that you maybe somehow removed some pictures that I added on this page. What's wrong with that problem? Please let me now what the problem is. Thanks. ;) Lavyny (talk) 09:21, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

I haven't edited that page since April last year so it probably wasn't me that removed them. I too remember there being a picture gallery on the page and don't know where they went. You're more than welcome to restore them and add anything else you have. Kiwichris (talk) 12:07, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

Bullying user report

I came here to inform you that a user name  is harassing or bullying me that when I am ranked number one, he added a subject called, go away user. He said " Hey I Just Want Let You Know That I Am Ranked 1 & I Declare To Be One." He called me an idiot and wants me to leave from my favorite wiki. That is known as cyber-bullying. So, can you help me to stay the wiki, and help me survive from the bullying? We'll be in touch. Thanks.

Picture Problem 2

Hi. This is me again. In case about a situation, I would like to ask: Is it true that the the gallery has too much photos could slow the page up. For instance the user told me that too much pictures on the gallery of a Tintin page has too much photos with it slows down the page. I'm just asking you, is it slows down the page? If you have the answer, please notify me as soon as you can. Thanks. 

Lavyny (talk) 21:40, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

In a way. It really depends on peoples pc's. If their hardware is too old or their internet connection too weak pictures can take ages to load. People on portable devices like smartphones and tablets often have the same problem. Kiwichris (talk) 06:41, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Hi there,

I rarely ever use Wikia, but while randomly looking up info on a character I noticed that one user is going around editing out tobacco in any form. For an example, look here on Colonel Sponsz's page. It's rather sloppy, and it seems to be for literally any occurance of tobacco, regardless of whether it's a real photograph or a panel from the comic.

I'm not sure how active you are here, but I thought I'd let you know as it makes this wiki look very unprofessional.

=Bullying is there again

Hi. Remember the last time that user hassled me before? Well, it's the same user who was Blue99White, and I remembered that he closed the other account, but with the different account, he was before, Fast44Blue, and now he became White44Tree. All three have the same story. He said he has more edits than me, which might mean that he is doing something with ongoing harassment. Not only that, he uploaded my pictures which incase he colored my and some users tried to revert it, and then he reverted the Jorgen picture and said, no smoking! But nonetheless, he want me to really leave my favorite wiki. And I know just a place where he is... [1]. Let's keep it confidential. Well be in touch when I meet you again.

Dutch wiki


I'm Yatalu, Wikia Helper of Dutch communities. I'm from Belgium ♪ I'm just passing by to let you know about the existence of a Dutch wiki about Tintin: Kuifje Wiki.

I was thinking that you might want to request interlanguages links on Community Central: w:Project:Interlanguage link requests. After that, you can link this wiki's pages with those of the Dutch wiki.

Let me know your answer,
YATTA ヽ( ° ヮ° )ノ @fandom ☆ 2016年07月29日、19:12:54

Hi, not sure what you mean by affiliation. Do you know interlanguage links are though?
YATTA ヽ( ° ヮ° )ノ @fandom ☆ 2016年08月05日、18:05:56 
I've never done any interlanguage links so I wouldn't know.
They're links at the bottom of pages that point to wikis about the same topic in a different language. But before they're there, you need to
1) request the wikis to be linked (see the link I post in my first message).
2) you can start adding links to articles that correspond, like Roberto Rastapopoulos (English) and w:c:fr.tintin:Roberto Rastapopoulos (French).
You can find more info about interlanguage links on Help:Interlanguage links. And you can request them at w:Project:Interlanguage link requests. I hope this helps ^- ^
