Well, it's been at least a few or more months since I last visited the site because of interest problems and the edit system was very screwy (because it won't let me publish). But anyways, if you don't know me, seeing that there are new people on this site, I'm that popular YouTube Pooper who is mostly known for making poops based off of Garfield, Element Animation, SMG4 (who in fact has been subscribed to me since March last year after he discovered my content.), and other obscure sources. This site has changed alot since I last left, from being a basic wikia contribution site to a heavily modified site. The home page still remains unchanged with the voting polls that I've been seeing for a long time now (such as "which is your favorite SMG4 video" which only has certain bloopers as choices, all before 2014.). So, what's up all you rotten people out there?
Hi. I'm Muchacho1994, one of the people who did that collab. Anyway, Have you heard of Silent Garfield, where they "mute" Garfield to make him more realistic?
I'm surprised, because people have done animated versions of Garfield Minus Garfield on YouTube. And yet nothing for Silent Garfield. It has to be easier than doing than GMG, since really all you have to do is mute the audio during Garfield's lines.
I know you made some YouTube poops of SMG4's bloopers, so I wanted to ask you if you're interested by the idea to release a SMG4 Can Can. I explained in detail the idea on a thread on the general discussion board. It could also be released by SMG4 himself (someone should tell him the idea with all the specifics I added, without forgetting the ones in the comments of the thread, and ask him if he's interested) or maybe someone else. I think the video then should become quite popular (mostly if SMG4 himself releases it, I think). Is it interesting?
Stop stereotyping, Zenon! French people (maybe not all) still have some sense of humor, OK maybe a bit less than other people, but still. However, I agree Frenchies aren't always happy (especially Parisians apparently), so they may less want to joke. But they aren't as soulless as you say, Zenon, and they may not be so weakness (maybe a bit, but not totally). Well, my problem with humor is that I sometimes hardly recognize when one of you is joking, so I tends to take the things a bit too seriously, but sometimes when I'm aware you're joking I still willingly take your joke seriously, just for fun (although you don't find this funny). When MarioFan did his jike test on this thread, I had though about the hypothesis that he was joking, but I had a doubt on that because I though ithere were no interest to tell random innocent people that they did bad things that they in fact didn't do (and then to threaten them for that), so I considered this as nonsense. But despite this I still knew it could be humoristic, it's just that I wasn't sure. Well, there again, I don't know if you Zenon are joking or not in your last reply. :/
This wiki looks like a hangout for wikia contributors to say anything that questions or compliments SMG4, who in fact did not make this wiki and barely comes here, and also some contributors that come here are like madly drunken alcoholics who spam articles with random things and are sometimes short-tempered. At some points, I say to myself "Why am I part of this fanbase?" when I see these things on the wiki. The wiki is messed up, the fanbase of the SMG4 community has gotten as bad as the PewDiePie fanbase, and there are too many people who are stupid or are dementedly mad over little situations. I feel like I want to leave this wiki for good if this keeps up. I can't take the irritation of these people. This is not my kind.

I agree with you. But I hope you won't leave this wiki. I may tell to every person talking to SMG4 there on this wiki that SMG4 barely comes here and wouldn't notice their message.
We need a new page or essay or blog or someshit to be linked from the front page and top-navigation, and explains all this simple stuff so that users don't have to point it out all the time – and when we do, we can just leave a link there. For instance:
SMG4 is not here (or at least not here often), and will most definitely not hear any compliments, questions, or requests.
The comments sections on articles are meant for discussing the articles and how they could possibly be improved. They are not like YouTube comments: they are not meant for random or witty posts, trolling/flaming, memes used by or in the subject of the article, etc. Please only post comments that are relevant to the betterment and amelioration of the corresponding page; if you really have to post something periphal to this, take the post to our forums.
The creation of useless content, such as categories, non-canonical pages, or articles describing a subject that is not notable, is heavily discouraged and may constitute a ban from this wikia. There's too much crap here already; we've had to start a broad, wikia-wide cleanup effort to delete all of the trivial, useless and nonsensical content that is already here.
If you want help, ask. If you want to make a bold move and change something heavily, it's fine as long as the change is positive. In general, though, check with an admin first.
You know, we should lock all the pages so WCs can't edit, cause all they do is spam the commentary section with raging and crappy blooper suggestions, and they also add useless categories like "AWESOME BLOOPERS and Sweg" on pages like Bowser. Better for this wiki without the WCs. The MM54321 Wiki didn't have any WCs and it was pretty neat for a few years.
There are a few contribs who actually try to help. A few. I don't see why they don't get accounts so that they don't have to keep reintroducing themselves, and accidentally keep causing dubiety and ambiguity. There's been a lot of confusion regarding the IP of a French user who seems hesitant to make an account for whatever reason, as an example. One person said that contrib should be banned for adding unnecessary pages; the real culprit turned out to be an entirely different IP. Then there's this guy who keeps calling Pl16 names for no given reason. So it's a bit harsh concept, but it might be somewhat necessary…
Then again, keeping with the train of thought with the one contrib adding pages, contribs can still do stuff like add pages or comment. Unless they're blocked, of course.
But to be honest with you, not a lot of this wiki's IPs actually do something worthwhile. About 2/3 of them add pointless categories and edits and never actually help except spamming, excluding some users that actually do help. So maybe it would be best to urge these IPs to create a new account if avaliable, because, like you and I said, there are certain problems imposed under these IP Addresses.
But we should ask admins first, before someone starts semi-protecting all the pages – although you can only protect pages as an admin… so yeah, we would have to ask an admin, in part because it's such a drastic change, and in part based on basic user rights 'n shit. :P
Well since you're a good friend I'm implementing some solutions. Here's the first:
Please keep all comments relevant to the article and clutter-free. Remember, SMG4 DOES NOT COME TO THIS WIKI. SUGGESTING IDEAS, OFFERING CRITICISMS, OR DIRECT CONVERSATION WILL BE MET WITH NOTHING BUT WARNINGS AND/OR DELETION. Thank you.
Yeah, let's leave in the talkpages rather than reverting to comments. Those just make people think it's YouTube.
Talkpages are going to be the place where smart people go to discuss the article itself. The comments have been the place that WCs think is YouTube, and where they try to contact SMG4 personally with their ideas. They won't listen to a block of text. Besides, talkpages are perfectly usable, and limit conversations to those relevant to the articles themselves.
So far I'm happier with the talkpages than the comments. There has definitely been almost no new spam after the change. As Pink said, please leave the talkpages in rather than reverting to the comments feature.
