User page tutorial

I've made a user page tutorial which outlines basic wiki and html conventions, and a template for people to use for their user pages. It would be good if this was added to the main page or some other place. Are there any categories I can add it to?

It would also be good if you or someone else checked it out to make sure it is all correct.

Thanks! Sshs 03:53, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

I think there should be a guide to creating user page/guild page

Hello, from my experience in spiral knights i think still many players dont know about existence of guild pages/user pages and how to create ones (some of them dont know about wikipedia existence). It would be nice if on the front page there would be a link (maybe in Social Compendium table) to a article which would be a quick guide how to do a guild page/user page. In that article there would be a short introduction to making wiki page and then there could be a list of existing user page/guild page templates.

Also i think it would be good to make wikipedia more popular amongst players, something what OOO can do is send out system mail as spiral HQ to inform about Spiral Knights wikipedia and its features (lot of information and mention of guild pages and user pages). Asukalan

Lol, look at the post above you. Sshs 03:26, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Green Leafy Aura Icon

Greetings Equi

I tried to upload the icon but couldn't upload the PNG file. Converted to GIF then uploaded it. Looks weird resized now :V

Green Leafy Aura Check the difference Twilight Aura

T_T can you turn it to PNG? Every time I do, I get the same error.

It's probably due to your image editor saving the format differently than the wiki recognizes. I'll take care of it soon if nobody else has gotten it before me. --Equinox 19:03, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello, this is Apophis-Set

I am the one who asked if it were possible to reclaim a hacked account. I recently found out my friend sold everything I owned and sent it to his account, "firefistace", as well as his other friend, "Wolfx-ten" I have spent a lot of money (around $400) and I was wondering if I can talk to a game master to somehow restore my account to how it was previously. This game means a lot to me, as I have spent a lot of my collected money on it. Please let me know if it is possible for a game master to restore all the things on it. Thank you! -Apophis-Set-

Content won't show

Hello there!

So I am pretty new to editing my Wiki page.

I have a problem. All the content I have written on my user page won't show. I don't understand why. I have Googled it, asked on forums and in Havens. Could you please spell this out for me?


Equipment pictures

Is there a reason pictures -have- to be taken from the Character window? Yes, it is advised because you can usually get the best view on them there - but there are a few where this just doesn't work. I can understand if it is meant to look uniform, but uniformity at the cost of praticality beats it's own purpose. I am namingly refering to pictures like the Warmaster Rocket Hammer and the Argent Peacemaker.

Srry to bother u Equniox

I really need your help on this one i created my guild page but it got screwed up so can u help me delete Paranoida (Guild) page so i can restart on a new one asap?

I think i figured it out already somehow and srry to bother u again

oh shit it is extremely screwed up can u plz help me delete it or do something to help cos i somehow moved the page to deleted then i can't revert back

Plz do not take this as a spam Equinox

Im sorry that i have created two other pages called Deleted and Paranoida(Guild) by accident srry for the extra work Equinox but plz delete it and just to let u know i have solved my wiki problems already

Category name change

Could you please move the category via this link?
Rename it to "Category:Surge-Themed" seeing as that's the name of all the costume/accessory gear.
There also seems to be some strange happenings about the wiki. As soon as I visit a page, it won't change from how it was when I first visited it, some sort of server issue where it isn't refreshing correctly? The source displays correct. (and hence doesn't match up to what I see on the mainspace) Even if I'm logged in, it still says up the top right "log in" (and I have to press "view source" in order to edit pages).
This seems really strange. I tried refreshing my cache with F5 to no avail. --HexZyle 10:21, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

DOUBLE Royal Jelly Crown

By entering this page you will immediately understand the problem for sure: Royal Jelly Crown (disambiguation)

I mean... How are we going to diferenciate these two identical things? Something like "Royal Jelly Crown (Furniture)" & "Royal Jelly Crown (Helmet)" ?

I want you also to check my solution of the "Furniture <-> Tokens" problem, please. Disambiguation pages everywhere!

Which is the correct way of uploading HQ icons for the things that are missing them? I'mean.. are they really in-game captures or there is an other oficial way of getting them? I usually just sit down waiting for someone to upload a very nice and HQ looking icon for the items, but sometimes (like now) i feel just a little impatient, XDD.

--Klauser 07:51, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Just make the page "Royal Jelly Crown (Furniture)". The helmet should stay were it is since I would imagine most people would be looking for that than the furniture. --Trying 04:39, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Thx, but what about the images/icons? Is anyone there? Klauser 02:36, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Trying's correct. For things with the exact same name, if one is more known/popular than the other it can be at the plain name and the other item(s) can have (blah) added into their names. --Equinox 23:29, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Laurel needs an equipment image.

We need the equipment image for the Golden Laurel if you could add it. (Bit late to the party! Completely forgot about it!) Thanks.

Acies 15:57, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I've popped in a standardized one for the base that shows up on accessory as well as one for the table on the page. --Equinox 19:39, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Regarding Staff exclusive items and equipment

I have a few I've been wanting to create the page for, such as Boswick's helmet and shield from back in the Preview Event, along with a certain troika variant which I've speculated the name of. (but seeing as its speculation, and the name came from a shifty, not-ingame source I'm thinking against mentioning it) Should I just create the pages under a made-up name, and then you correct the name like you did here?:
I'm also wondering whether to give the Shadow Expresso a page of its own or put it on the Pickups page. The latter seems more logical, but I'm thinking maybe it shouldn't go there because the majority of players won't ever encounter it. --HexZyle 12:21, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure it's useful to document things that people have not seen in game since the preview. I'm definitely sure that they shouldn't go on main lists of things. I also do not want you adding things that have not been seen in game or that have solely been picked out from the game files. I only did the ban stick since it is seen by players on a regular basis when GM assistance is needed. --Equinox 19:43, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I thought it would be of interest to players to see what was in the game back then. (Not to mention a few such items appear both on the original Trailer as well as on the media section of the website; Seriously lol, those images are quite outdated) You say "not useful", so does that mean that to create a page on the wiki, an article requires ingame utility?
And I'm not adding anything found solely in the files that hasn't been seen ingame ever. There are quite a few items that have popped up in various old images from back around the preview event, and from SGA's old wikidot site. The thing I'm the most curious about is that bright white shield that was shown at the Three Rings presentation which was intended to be a branch off from the Defender series. If I'm not mistaken, I saw Boswick with it in a screenshot that I forgot to save, and I believe it was called something along the lines of "Shining Ward" --HexZyle 17:15, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Feel free to keep documenting things that have been seen in game, but I can tell you that generally this would be basically last priority in terms of things I would assist with so you'll need to glean the information yourself. --Equinox 21:30, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I see, so it's more a matter of "there are more important things I could be working on, I don't have time to gather data for things the majority of players are not going to see ingame", So I'll make sure that I have absolute certainty on all information and the officialism of sources for these pages before submitting them then. Thanks for your input. --HexZyle 10:37, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Kat Claw Cowl image on Kat Claw Mask page

Hello, on my first foray into posting an image on this wiki, I goofed.

I uploaded the image of the Kat Eye Cowl to the Kat Eye Mask page. I tried to fix it, but won't let me load two of the same images to the wiki (with good reason, I'm sure) and I can't seem to figure out how to get the image from the Kat Eye Mask page to the Kat Eye Cowl page.

I appreciate any help you may have.

Thank you


I've deleted various images. You should be able to upload the correct ones or you can wait for someone else to do it if you cannot figure it out. --Equinox 23:27, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

What time is it?

I'm a bit confused about what time things happened on this wiki relative to myself. Except for a bit last night, I've been using the server time, but then I decided to change that so it matches up with my time, but I have no idea how this works. Are edits on the Recent Changes page real-time? or delayed? If so, by how much? Because this is what I saw when changing the time: A new edit comes in, and the page says 00:34, I take this to mean midnight somewhere, it was currently 03:34 for me on the east coast, 3 hours difference. Current server time was 08:34, a difference of 8 hours. I update my preferences to -05:00 as that's my current timezone, the preferences page states 08:34 as server, 03:34 as my time, this is correct. But now that edit says: 19:34, it's moved back 6 hours, not 5? I've currently set it to +03:00 because that seems to match up to me, assuming the pages are real-time. --Lithium31337 20:33, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

This is getting even weirder, I preview this page with my sig, and it states: 20:31. It is currently 15:31, 5 hours ahead of current. Which might make sense timezone wise, but I'm set to it should be 2 or 8 hours difference one way or the other right? Assuming it is offset, then server time is 2 hours ahead of me? Checking the Date and Time section, server time is 20:31, so sig time stamps aren't offset? Is there a list of things that are and aren't offset?

Signatures use UTC which is pretty much what used to be called GMT. As for recent changes, it's just wonky for all of us and I don't think there's anything I can do to fix it. You could always just fool around with the offset until it shows your current time in recent changes for the most recent edits. Due to the possibility of issues, I tend to just ignore the timestamp as the wiki's history for things will show things in the order that they happened. --Equinox 23:26, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Need your insight on something:

Involving Equipment images on the Wiki and the new 3D Renders in the recent update. Also, glad to see you back!

-- Acies 18:15, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

I've chimed in. --Equinox 23:26, 9 February 2013 (UTC)


Browsing Special:WantedFiles I come across Padlock-red.svg, so I make one and try to upload it but the wiki doesn't allow svg, so my question is, what should I do?

Just ignore it. --Equinox 20:17, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Saber notices little details from pressing the "random page" button a lot

Crystal Bomb this line has a bunch of outdated info, and the first one has the wrong damage info. It should be elemental, not piercing.

Equinox, the

Serious error...

If you haven't noticed, then it's only me experiencing this error. If you have noticed... you probably don't need me to explain it... what happened to all the images on the wiki? --HexZyle 14:08, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

I remember this happening once. I'm gonna throw in a support ticket and see if Clotho can take care of it.--Trying 15:36, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

This entire section needs updating

I'd do it myself but when I tried to re-upload the "Vial Belt" it just gave me another copy of your previous upload. It didn't say it was protected but yeah. If you can re-upload everything suited to the new UI (including Vials, Pills, and Mecha Kit) that'd be great.

EDIT: Including this too:

Like I said, I'd do it but I assume all your uploads are instantly protected?

Proto Armor Icons

I tried to do something fancy and make a gif of the different proto armor themes (also the current icons are a tad outdated, they look like they're from the Preview Event, I have some images I can upload but I'm wondering which theme to use) and I came up with this: Proto Armor Animated-icon.gif. The issue is, the Armor page template (and the Armor Stat template on the side of the page with all the armor info in it) are set to automatically grab the PNG file that matches the armor name. But my animated file is a GIF, so I've kinda struck a solid wall with what to do. (P.S, that file isn't animating on this page as it is when you blow it up full size :/ is that happening for you?) --HexZyle 10:53, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

The reason it doesn't animate is due to how to wiki handles resizing gifs. Use it at normal, non scaled size and it will animate, but if it's re-sized it creates a flat non-animating version of the gif for display. --Lithium31337 17:03, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Darn. Thanks though. --HexZyle 17:47, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Spiral Spy Images Uploaded I've left a note on his talk page. --HexZyle 16:08, 28 April 2013 (UTC)


Can I add a screenshot to the OCH picture gallery? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ninjadrill (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Feel free - the page is still lacking and could benefit from some images --HexZyle 21:41, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Old Icons

Any way to grab all the old icons easily? or would I have to save each manually?

Manual. Only other "easy" way would be to make a page that has them all full size and save that. --Equinox 04:40, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

release rss

I have an idea for a page. Basically people can subscribe to the RSS feed of the page changes, and the page will be updated with release notes whenever spiral knights is updated. It will need to be managed by a GM or someone who can change it as soon as the update releases.

Travel Passes

Would you ever consider undeleting this page for historical interest? Or was the page just a stub? --HexZyle 09:44, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

It's actually no longer archived so even I cannot view what used to be there. --Equinox 18:13, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I've noticed a lot of weird stuff going on in this wiki. For example, roughly only about the last 500 edits to the wiki are compiled on the recent changes list (and thus, on your watchlist) and thus after 10-15 days the edit will disappear off both and you'll only know of it the next time you check that page's history page. --HexZyle 08:42, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Mass Image Reverts

Do you have the ability to clean the images out of the database, in cases like this? --HexZyle 18:21, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

making wiki guild page for knights errant

I've written up lists and content text, designed and formatted our logo. I have 2 unrelated web sites out there so have some experience but simply can't figure how to make this stuff into a spiffy wiki guild page from the template "guildinfo".

Please help.

(Lots of guild founders must have the same trouble. I'm savvy. What about those who have not a clue about posting and need to put out their guild page? There outa be a law!!! :-))

Updating an old Admin Forum Thread

Hello, check out comment # 71 in Forum Node 1264. I'd like to link to this: Things to Do instead of those two smaller pages, so casual forumers/editors can be updated and help out easily. That is, if you think this is a good thing to do. -Novaster 00:58, 10 February 2015 (UTC)


Ok nevermind i fixed it --1462 02:27, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

The version you uploaded is a nonsense image and does not belong on the wiki. It is fortunate that you reverted it, but the fact you uploaded this in the first place is quite worrying. -Novaster 05:45, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

A question about an official image

I want to know about the official image's meaning. I want to upload this to the spanish wiki as "SpiralKnights_News_106-big.png". It is allowed?. Also, to make the same question here, should i reupload the image as "SpiralKnights_News_106-big.png" here in the english wiki too?. --Hikaru 22:47, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Sadly, Equinox hasn't been around for a while. It might be quiiiiite a long time before you get a response. My hunch is this would be fine for the sake of consistency, but you might want to ask via support, or leave a message on Clotho's Talk Page. Clotho is very busy atm, but you'll have better luck with a response there. --Novaster 23:02, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes, i trough the same but i forgot Clotho was in the english's wiki too xD. I just leave her the msg right now. At least this is not an important issue and by the time she reply me wouldn't be "late" xD. I will use the small image meanwhile. Thx! --Hikaru 23:16, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
