of Starfy Wiki

Thank you so much for all your hard work Torchickens! You've truly been a great help! I know this isn't much but here's something to put in your Tag Tower -The Forgotten Beast 18:38, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

That's very nice of you. Thanks!--Torchickens 19:10, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Re:Reversion on Tsunokkuru

Weird... 0_o I don't recall doing that, I must've been half dead asleep when it happened. Starfystub2.png Well anyway feel free to change it back and sorry about that, also have you noticed the new changes on the wiki? I even made an IRC channel for the members of the wiki to instantly chat on! So whenever you need to tell me something fast just let me know on the talk page and I'll meet you on the IRC for instant chat stuff, I'll also be informing the others about that. -The Forgotten Beast 01:07, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Answer to your question

I'm not sure exactly, but Puchi Ogura #4 might've been threatening the Konbi in some way, but was interrupted by Starfy 3 times. Since they can turn into fire, it's also possible that he was trying to make them his minions. If I find out anything more helpful though, I'll let you know. Star Light 05:04, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you!

Great job Torchickens! Now that all the images are up I have sent User:Tappy the notification. If you'd like to request for adminship please let me know! -The Forgotten Beast 18:12, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Very good then, I'll run the idea by my fellow admins. ಠ‿ರೃ -The Forgotten Beast 23:00, 9 April 2011 (UTC)


Congratulations Torchickens you are now an admin! Applause all around! -The Forgotten Beast 13:10, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Basically, whenever you see a meddlesome spammer block them and when you see a useless page delete it and when someone asks you for help make sure to help them with patience and kind understanding, its like you're the Fourth Hokage now! Anyway I know you'll do a great job! If you still have questions let me know on my talk page. ಠ‿ರೃ -The Forgotten Beast 19:20, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Hey Torchickens, just came by to let you know that it might be a good idea to join the NIWA forums so you can keep up to date on the latest NIWA news, well that and the vote for Starfy Wiki's approval into NIWA is all ready underway and it could use all the votes it can get. -The Forgotten Beast 14:17, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

The Forgotten Beast, same as it is here. -The Forgotten Beast 20:59, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Who's Online list

Hi, you're the first admin I've seen here so I'll address this to you. The recent changes list of users online is too long. I would duggest sorting it lenghtways or adding in a show/hide box around it. Thanks, Solar Dragon 20:03, 28 April 2011 (UTC)


Hello Torchickens, would you mind meeting me on the IRC chat to discuss an important topic? -The Forgotten Beast 02:01, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

If your not available now can we meet up at the IRC tomorrow at around 4:00? The reason is that Starfy wiki's description for the wiki section on NIWA's main page needs to be made. So hopefully I'll see you tomorrow. -The Forgotten Beast 02:43, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Recieved Mail

Hello, Torchickens. It's me, Zaben73[1]. I recieved the message about Mini G. Thak you for telling me. I will try to be as accurate as possible from now on.

P.S. - Thank you for telling me about how to upload images. I really appreciate it.

Starfy on Mariowiki

Torchickens, Mariowiki is voting on whether or not to delete the Starfy page on their wiki, if you can, I'd like you to go and place your vote: Talk:Starfy, the page has a few links to our wiki and if they remove it I fear people on Mario wiki may be less interested in learning more about Starfy, sorry for the trouble and thanks for reading! -The Forgotten Beast 00:34, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Image Upload

Yes, I tried again. It's not uploading, and I received the same message. Do you know what it means? I have some great art to contribute, which is a shame. Can you help? ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 23:33, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

I've got the correct file extension. The upload warning in red says "The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver." ???? ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 23:47, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

I found this. Tried what they suggested, didn't work. Giving up for now. ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 23:51, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

The image I tried to upload popped up just fine here, but this wiki has been abandoned. ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 00:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Apology for absence

Sorry for my absence recently Torchickens, but my personal affairs (college, family, $ and what not) keep me quite busy and the best I can do is perform a daily check up here and there on the wikis, but hopefully I'll see if I can at least have a descent summer to focus on the wiki, anyway see you tomorrow, same time, same wiki! Also thanks for contacting Tappy about our image problem. -The Forgotten Beast 01:00, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Image Problem Solved

You might want to see the artwork. You probably had a hard time coming by some of these when you were originally looking for them. The art is so nice. I'm a big fan. Enjoy! ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 13:19, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

I noticed you are online. Your thoughts? Am I messing anything up? ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 18:08, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Besides what I'm uploading (still more to go!) there are also about fifty images on my hard drive that I cannot identify. I'm not uploading them unless I know the proper page for them. Any ideas? ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 18:35, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

What I mean is, from what I've gathered from your profile information, you seem to know the most about characters/enemies from Densetsu no Starfy 4 and their English/Romanized names. What perhaps other site (Flickr, etc.), maybe e-mail, do you recommend for working together to identify these remaining images? Or do I just upload them sans their proper names? ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 18:39, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Yeah. Right now, I'll just concentrate on the images I do have the names for, so let me get crackin! ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 19:00, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

That's all for now. Taking a little break. I've noticed you're uploading stuff that I've got artwork for. This helps (as long as you don't mind me replacing them with better ones. I wouldn't think you would). Keep doing that if you're able, and I'll replace them with mine. This seems to be working, I don't know. Back later. ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 21:04, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Unidentified Images

Yes, I cropped some of the white background out of the images (believe me, on some of them, there was a lot.) It's a habit of mine. I prefer images where the character art is centered, which I'm pretty good at, IMO. Sorry if this bothers purists, but the damage is already done. Anyway, I want to upload the remaining unidentifiable images, but, before I begin, what do you suggest I call them, what summary do I give for them, etc.? I'm excited to find out their proper names for my own "library". Thanks. ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 15:25, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Japanese Cover Art

You're correct about it being the Japanese cover art, of course. Sorry about that, I really didn't even pick up on the differences until I compared them. ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 01:46, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

My Source

Gamekult, yes! I believe you're right!! ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 22:18, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

So sorry!

Sorry I didn't reply sooner Torchickens and that I haven't been as active as usual, I've just been a little depressed is all, anyway BattleFranky202 never replied so I'm guessing he's sticking with wikia and also let me know when we can meet up on the IRC. -The Forgotten Beast 09:58, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Okay then, how about tomorrow at 6:00 or so? See you then! -The Forgotten Beast 00:52, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
I apologize for not showing up, I had some "family business" to attend to... -_- anyway I'll be logging in tonight around 6:00 and tomorrow again around the same time, I just pray nothing happens to intervene this time... -_-' -The Forgotten Beast 18:56, 9 July 2011 (UTC)


Torchickens I'm in the IRC now if you need to discuss anything. -The Forgotten Beast 00:18, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Starfy Board

Well if you guys want a board to be made that's fine with me. -The Forgotten Beast 02:17, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm here!

I am SO sorry I didn't return right away! I'm a terrible procrastinator, and the transfer had me too intimidated to act quickly... But here I am, and I'm ready to help... If I can... - BattleFranky202 04:59, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Starfy Board

That sounds great! And sure, I think its best we share the info. -The Forgotten Beast 04:16, 29 July 2011 (UTC)


I wonder if all this spam means were getting more popular or if its a sign of difficult times ahead... -_- -The Forgotten Beast 20:23, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Re:Global email address

Um... You could send me an e-mail using my Gmail address. It's [email protected] FYI. - BattleFranky202 00:37, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Just a thanks

Thanks for correcting my translation error. That's the second time I messed up "sha" and "ja" I ought to do something about that. >.> As for Ice Guy and Sky Swimmer, since their names are obviously based on English words we'll leave them as they are. Thanks again and happy holidays, by the way! Star Light 15:00, 25 December 2011 (EST)

DnS1 Artwork

Yes, I was able to use my mother's scanner to scan them all from the Starfy 1 guide book I have. :D Also are you sure that you don't have a scanner? The new images you uploaded seem to look much better this time. Kagegamer12 08:37, 6 January 2012 (EST)

DnS3 Artwork

Ah, okay. That makes sense then. Also do you know the names of those obscure games or series? The artwork does look really interesting and I'm a little curious as to what they are about. Kagegamer12 18:31, 12 January 2012 (EST)


Do you think we should affiliate ourselves with SEIWA (Square Enix Independent Wiki Alliance)? Alot of the other other NIWA wikis have so we should probably affiliate ourselves too. -The Forgotten Beast 21:09, 16 January 2012 (EST)

Yes! Shall I do it or would you like the honors? In the mean time I should probably make a Starfy Wiki banner unless they make one for us. -The Forgotten Beast 16:59, 17 January 2012 (EST)
Nvm I already sent a request. -The Forgotten Beast 15:42, 18 January 2012 (EST)


Please leave your opinion here: here. Thanks! --Starphoria (C·E) 17:19, 21 January 2012 (EST)

Re:今更 Affiliation

Thanks Torchickens! If this goes well it'll hopefully be a big leap for Starfy! ...I hope... -The Forgotten Beast 18:41, 29 January 2012 (EST)

You're welcome. I hope so as well, it would be nice to have an inter-language affiliate. By the way, do you have a Twitter account? I set one up recently (Torchickens as usual), and it would be nice if we could communicate more efficiently in some way. --Torchickens 19:20, 29 January 2012 (EST)
I do not actually, I have this rule about not going anywhere near popular social sites, but might as well at this point... ಠ~ಠ -The Forgotten Beast 01:11, 30 January 2012 (EST)

Here's my twitter profile... [2]... ಠ~ಠ... Good Lord I have a Twitter profile... -The Forgotten Beast 03:28, 1 February 2012 (EST)

I've replied to your tweet. I'll give it a few more days to see whether we get a clear response. I have an associate (Blaziken257), who is the moderator of a now independent Telefang Wiki known as Wikifang, and is the founder of pretty much the only English Telefang fan-site. I'll consider asking them if they're interested in an affiliation, if you're all right with that? --Torchickens 12:31, 2 February 2012 (EST)

Starfy Wiki Forum Banner

Hey, wouldn't it be cool if Starfy Wiki had their own forum banner like the other wikis do? --Starphoria (C·E) 12:41, 19 February 2012 (EST)

Hm, not sure what it should say, probably just "The Legendary Starfy Wiki"... What did you have in mind? --Starphoria (C·E) 13:43, 19 February 2012 (EST)
Yeah, I would make it but I'm not too great at designing these things. --Starphoria (C·E) 14:19, 19 February 2012 (EST)
I'll go and ask Moydow on F-Zero Wiki if he can make one for us. --Torchickens 14:32, 19 February 2012 (EST)
Alrighty. --Starphoria (C·E) 15:12, 19 February 2012 (EST)
- There it is. --Starphoria (C·E) 19:41, 19 February 2012 (EST)
I love it :P --Starphoria (C·E) 21:28, 19 February 2012 (EST)


Tappy installed Anonrights, so we can attempt to stop this spamming, but the only thing that would work is stopping the creation of accounts... which is not good. I can also ask him to switch it so that only autoconfirmed users can create pages and create talk pages. --Starphoria (C·E) 14:10, 20 February 2012 (EST)

Hm, I suggest taking it up with the others and Tappy from his own personal experience. I'll go with whatever everyone else says. --Starphoria (C·E) 14:55, 21 February 2012 (EST)
Also, the IRONY --Starphoria (C·E) 14:56, 21 February 2012 (EST)
o.o That would be terrible! XD --Starphoria (C·E) 15:46, 21 February 2012 (EST)
Sweet. --Starphoria (C·E) 16:58, 21 February 2012 (EST)


They approved our affiliation request? *parties* --Starphoria (C·E) 19:16, 21 February 2012 (EST)

That's great news! --Starphoria (C·E) 19:30, 21 February 2012 (EST)
They seem to be in contact with other Starfy sites as well... I notice a few Starfy Links on their page. --Starphoria (C·E) 19:59, 21 February 2012 (EST)
They have a link to Colorful Planet on their site (I think), can't you just contact the fanart blog for contact info for Colorful Planet? --Starphoria (C·E) 20:22, 21 February 2012 (EST)
Yeah, that's true. I was looking for something like an email address on the Colorful Planet website. I've thanked 今更 imasara for adding the link to Starfy Wiki and told them to please excuse my bad Japanese. --Torchickens 20:44, 21 February 2012 (EST)
Hm, Ok. --Starphoria (C·E) 20:47, 21 February 2012 (EST)
I support an affiliation. --Starphoria (C·E) 21:08, 21 February 2012 (EST)

(reset indent) Also, people are starting to edit Starfy Wikia again, I informed them about the move, one has an account here, the other doesn't, so eh. --Starphoria (C·E) 17:49, 22 February 2012 (EST)


Did you get a reply from Tappy on how to prevent this constant spamming? 'Cause I honestly have no clue on how to put an end to this... <( -The Forgotten Beast 04:16, 23 February 2012 (EST)

If the spam continues at this high rate, we may have to resort to said methods. -The Forgotten Beast 14:08, 23 February 2012 (EST)

Admin Category

Can you add Category:Admins to your userpage? Unless I removing broken file links or categories, I don't like to edit other people's user pages, I kind of find it rude (heh), so can you add it yourself? --Starphoria (C·E) 16:04, 26 February 2012 (EST)

Thanks! --Starphoria (C·E) 16:50, 26 February 2012 (EST)

Re:Densetsu no Starfy 2 guidebook

Well that sucks =\. I was able to get my copy just fine from Japan-ssyduk with all the pages still intact, so I'm guessing they did just oversee it. But I wonder, if the pages were originally torn out, then it would mean the original owner either torn them out to make scans of them for who knows what or the owner was a reckless person that wanted to tear the pages out. Either way, I hope you will be able to send it back and get your refund without too much trouble.

Oh yeah, I was able to obtain my copies of them the other day xD, though it was at a slightly higher price than that but still. Maybe you can tell Star Light about it, she has been wanting to have them for some time now.

Yeah, I saw a picture of them at the end Densetsu no Starfy 2 guide book. Maybe one of us can request Japan-ssyduk or some other japanese shop on ebay to find those plushes so they can start selling or auctioning them.

I'm not really sure, this scanner is kind of old so maybe not. Kagegamer12 21:57, 3 March 2012 (EST)

If it is a sure way to get rid or greatly limit these constant waves of spam, then sure. Kagegamer12 10:10, 6 March 2012 (EST)
It's fine, don't worry about it ^^. Btw I have uploaded all of the artwork that were specific to only Densetsu no Starfy 2 and various plush artwork from the Legendary Starfy guidebook as well. Kagegamer12 01:24, 8 March 2012 (EST)


Never thought to ask this question before, but I understand there is an email for the staff? Just wondering, what is the password, and how do I access it? Send me a private message on the NIWA forums, since, well, we don't want people getting into it. :P --Starphoria (C·E) 18:34, 5 March 2012 (EST)

The extension is User Merge and Delete, I think. And sounds good. Looks like we will have a lot of user deleting to go through > <. We're supposed to make an account, called "Vandal" or "TestAccount" or whatever, and merge all the spam bots into that user account. It will then delete all the spam bots. :P --Starphoria (C·E) 15:30, 6 March 2012 (EST)


Can be used to delete spam accounts. Merge all accounts into "StarfyWikiAccount". --Starphoria (C·E) 15:32, 7 March 2012 (EST)

Re: Re:

Heh. No problem. This spamming has gone on far too long. Thanks for deleting the users! Also, got the forum message. Hopefully with the new spam software, we no longer have spammers. And hopefully the email address will get working again. Would there be anything else Starfy Wiki would need? --Starphoria (C·E) 15:19, 8 March 2012 (EST)

Yes, there is a way to check IP Addresses. That would require I believe it is its own user right, so we'd have to decide users who get check user rights, or just give it to all the admins. I know a lot of extensions :P --Starphoria (C·E) 15:36, 8 March 2012 (EST)
I informed Tappy on Skype, it's easiest to contact him that way. --Starphoria (C·E) 15:57, 8 March 2012 (EST)


Hello! I made a NavBox for the Staff members. Can you please add {{AdminNavbox}} to the bottom of your userpage? --Starphoria (C·E) 17:22, 8 March 2012 (EST)

If you are using a Tag Tower, be sure to add {{UserTagTowerEnd}} to where you want the tag tower to end! --Starphoria (C·E) 17:25, 8 March 2012 (EST);
Added. --Torchickens 18:16, 8 March 2012 (EST)

New artwork

Wow, just wanted to congratulate you on all the rare Starfy art you've been uploading since I was last on here! Good work. ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 10:51, 9 March 2012 (EST)

Just curious. Who do you buy from? I usually buy from jap-sai, but they are pricey. Also, how do you know the book you're ordering has good pictures? Do you just take a chance? ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 21:27, 9 March 2012 (EST)

I hate to use the word again, but wow! I didn't expect such a thorough, thoughtful answer! I'm flattered by your help. I hope the site I pointed you to helps. The guy there takes digital shots of a few pages of the item I intend to buy, so I get a good idea if I want to purchase it or not, which is nice. He (?) is very patient. I've gotten a few things from the eBay seller you linked. He's pretty good. Unfortunately, my passion for all things Capcom has diminished lately, but if I can ever help again on this wiki, I will. I recently inherited a DS, so naturally Starfy was one of the first games I got, and I love it. Be well! ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 15:49, 10 March 2012 (EST)

It was The Legendary Starfy, the first game to introduce him to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, I can't read Japanese or I would try to find a way to get the previous game. :( ▫ Icysugarspiketalk 18:33, 10 March 2012 (EST)


Thanks :3, I bought myself a new laptop, and I love it :3, I needed a new one anyway. I'll try and get back to work tomorrow. Also, Starfy Wiki is number 6 in NIWA activity-wise!! --Starphoria (C·E) 19:27, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

I really hope some of the other NIWA Wikis see a boost in activity... I wish that all the wikis got at least about 100 posts per week :/ --Starphoria (C·E) 20:03, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

Re: Spam Bots

It seems like the spam accounts continously invade this wiki non stop. D: I noticed that the account creation doesn't have a CAPTCHA, which may be the reason why so many spam bots can easily spawn accounts. Perhaps if we can implement a CAPTCHA of somekind or just more security in account creating we may be able to decrease all these spam attacks even if it doesn't stop it all. Kagegamer12 11:37, 16 March 2012 (EDT)

EDIT- I just now noticed that it does have a CAPTCHA, but it seems like bots are still able to make accounts nonstop..., so perhaps a better CAPTCHA like what popular sites are using would work? Kagegamer12 11:44, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
lolz yeah that may work XD, though it seems like disabling account creating is working just fine right now. It is not like there are other people that maintain this wiki other than us admins anyways. Kagegamer12 12:04, 6 April 2012 (EDT)


Erm, we prefer the Falcon one. Although, it doesn't matter. WiKirby almost never uses the right favicons. --Starphoria (C·E) 20:11, 16 March 2012 (EDT)

I made a spelling mistake... :/ Anyways, we were one of the first ones to update. Bulbapedia was one of the last :/ Pikipedia and Wars Wiki have yet to update, I think Zelda Wiki hasn't either (last I checked). Do you know how often Beast is online? --Starphoria (C·E) 15:59, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
No problem. ...My talk page was spammed. --Starphoria (C·E) 15:33, 19 March 2012 (EDT)

Re:10th anniversary

I'm here Torchickens and I'll be in the IRC all day until maybe 12:00 AM so we can begin discussing on changes. -The Forgotten Beast 16:14, 19 March 2012 (EDT)


This Friday I'll update the Featured Article, Featured Video, etc. Can you tell TFB on Toriko Wiki to update the Poll then, too? (I'd like to see everything updated) Besides, 100 votes is enough :P That is about how many voted DK Wiki got within the same amount of time (Though, they make their polls drag on longer) I think we should update the Poll every time it gets over 100 votes (Because, that is a lot for a smaller wiki, they better announce Starfy 6 :( ) Also, I've been looking into getting the original Densetsu no Starfy, do you have a good suggestion of where I can buy it? I really want to get all the Starfy games before the end of this year, I only have the DS games :P (Though, I have the Japanese The Legendary Starfy [Starfy 5] and the English version :P ) --Starphoria (C·E) 15:46, 21 March 2012 (EDT)

Also, I'm going to make Starfy Wiki:To-Do List, similar to F-Zero Wiki's. Also, I'll tell TFB :) --Starphoria (C·E) 14:53, 22 March 2012 (EDT)

Music Navbox

The Music Navbox is complete! Check it out and tell me what you think --> Template:MusicNavbox -The Forgotten Beast 20:48, 22 March 2012 (EDT)

To-Do List

Hey, I made Starfy Wiki:To-Do List so we all know what we can work on... I don't really know what to put on there, but you could probably add some stuff to the list. You can improve it organization-wise as well. :P --Starphoria (C·E) 02:54, 25 March 2012 (EDT)


When you get the chance, please get on Skype, I need to talk to you about what I talked to TFB, Perhaps tomorrow at 5PM Eastern time would work? --Starphoria (C·E) 16:32, 2 April 2012 (EDT)

Send to Tappy

Hi. On Skype, can you send Tappy that list of updates he should make I gave you on Skype? I'm not sure if he's been getting my messages :/ --Starphoria (C·E) 17:04, 4 April 2012 (EDT)


Next time you are online, please get on Skype. --Starphoria (C·E) 20:26, 11 April 2012 (EDT)
