I just want to ask my question without reading this FAQ
Basically, it is not a problem for me, but people usually want to prevent an embarrassing situation when they ask a question and they get an answer like "ehm, this is explained in the FAQ". So, I believe it is in your own interest to read it (at least search the questions/topics please).
I think this FAQ is too long
Sorry, I want to save your time spent by waiting for my answer, so I'm trying to answer really every typical question here.
Please, try to read at least the questions/topics. I will come with a "TL;DR" verion of this FAQ eventually.
I have found a game bug, I can't log in into a game, I have connection problems, …
Sorry, we are not Ninja Kiwi, so we can't help you with these problems. Please, contact Ninja Kiwi directly on support@ninjakiwi.com.
Remember that the issue can be also caused by your internet connection or your computer / web browser. Before contacting anyone else, always eliminate the possibility of the local source(s) of problems.

Excelent! An article editing is the main area where you can help, but there are also other ways how to be useful. You can help others by answering their questions on the forum.

You can post you NK profile name on Looking for Friends board. If you want me as your NK friend, then send me a request on my NK profile: Spike144.
I got blocked by you or some other admin
When you are blocked, you can usually still use your message wall. The admin who has blocked you usually follows your wall, so you can try discuss your block there, but remember that a negative behavior won't work, so don't try anything like: "OMG, WHY I GOT BLOCKED?", "I WANT TO GET UNBLOCKED!", "UNBLOCK ME!", …
If you are blocked even on your message wall, then you can contact me on Community central. Anyways, remember that a negative behavior there has usually much stronger impact on you and you can get even globally blocked within the whole Fandom network.
My edit was prevented by Abuse filter
Don't try to save/publish your contribution again and follow the abuse filter's warning message. For further explanation, feel free to contact me on my wall.
I got blocked by Abuse filter
You shouldn't have ignored the abuse filter's warning message.
In a strong majority of cases, you got blocked for a good reason and there is no need to discuss it.
There is a small change that you got blocked because some abuse filter's rule didn't work as intended. In this case, I notice your block within 48 hours and unblock you. Next time, please don't ignore abuse filter's warning messages.
I need help with wikitext, HTML or CSS
Feel free to contact me on my wall. For a help with wikitext, you can also check Wikitext, Wikitext/more examples, Wikitext/link examples, Wikitext/table examples, Wikitext/tag examples, Galleries, Slideshows, and Sliders/wikitext, Templates, Magic words.
I have a question related to BloonsBOT or bot edits at all
Check BloonsBOT's FAQ. If you didn't find your answer, then contact me on my wall.
I would like to know who the Bloons Wiki founder is
It is Zelda311.
I don't want unregistered users here. They come only to vandalize.
Not really. It may look so, as many of the vandal attacks are done by unregistered users, on the other hand a strong majority of unregistered users are helpful. Many users come only to do a single or small edit and the registration process would drive them away. For further info, see Should this wiki be changed in a way that all contributors have to log in?.
I have noticed somebody with a bad behavior like trolling, flaming, offending, …
Don't Feed the Trolls, don't flame the person, don't respond even with anything like "I will report you for this!", ideally don't respond at all. Instead of it, contact me on my wall and report the person.
I want to use profanity on the wiki
"One person's freedom ends where another person's freedom begins"
While you may believe it is part of your rights to offend anybody you want, others have a right to peacefully live here without being offended.
We don't allow even things such as profanity in edit summaries when reverting bad edits, as it is always directed against some previous editor(s). This behavior only supports flaming and trolling and it never brings anything good. Whenever a profanity is allowed in the community, it always attracts people who come only to offend somebody.
If you still believe you "need" to use profanity, there are thousands of communities across the internet where it is allowed, so feel free to join them and curse like a pirate captain there.
I would like to meet you on chat or Skype
Generally, it is possible to meet on chat. You can contact me on my wall and tell me what day and time (please use UTC time) you can join at. However, remember that I live in Central Europe, so I won't come when there is a night there. Also, if you have nothing to talk about, don't expect that others are here to entertain you.
You can also contact me on Skype, my skypename is spike144. But remember, if you want to contact me there and I don't have you in my contacts, then you MUST introduce yourself, i.e. tell me who you are and why you are contacting me. If you don't do this, I will deny the request and report you as a spammer. Saying just something like "Hello" or "Are you here?" or leaving the default message there doesn't definitely count as an introducing. Also, don't expect me to respond on Skype during night in Europe. If you want to prevent any misunderstanding, you can first contact me on my wall and tell me you want to exchange Skype contacts.
I don't understand what that your “guestbook” is good for
Institutions such as galleries or museums have often a book where guests can share their expresions related to the exposition they just saw. They can also just sign the book to say "I was here". We are not either a gallery or a museum but I like guestbooks and I like to see other people's wiki signatures, so I created my guestbook for a similar purpose: You can sign it to show "you were here" and to show your signature to the public.
I would like to know what your nickname “Spike144” means
"Spike" is a nickname which I adopted on college, and "144" is derived from my birthday: 14.4.
I would like to know something about you
I'm Czech. I live in Czech Republic. I'm 37 years old. I work as an IT. I practice 太極拳.
I would like to know what games you play besides Bloons-related ones
I love explorative games. I play mainly strategies, RPGs and survival games, but I play other game genres too. I prefer single-player or co-op modes (no MMO games because they are too addictive for me with various daily quests, daily rewards and so). I like games with open worlds or randomly generated worlds and sandbox games. My favorite game attributes are a complex research, training or crafting system, and campaigns with a strong story. Also, I like when I can create my own levels/missions/worlds in the game and customize the game itself vastly.
Here are some of my favorite PC titles:
Archon Classic
Command & Conquer series (from original C&C to Generals + Zero Hour)
Diablo II (+ LoD)
Master of Orion II
OpenTTD
OpenXCom
Spore (+ Galactic Adventures)
Starcraft (+ Brood War)
Terraria
Warcraft III (+ TFT)
World of Warcraft (+ BC and WotLK, anyways I don't play this one anymore as I'm trying to avoid MMORPGs because of addiction issues)
If you know any similar game that I might like, then please let me know and contact me on my wall.
I would like to know something about your avatar
Many users have very nice avatars, but it is usually difficult to recognize what is on the picture when it is reduced to a small size which is happening for example on threads or on the chat. My avatar is very simple as it was originally an icon in an old icon library created for Windows 3.1., therefore it was originally optimized for a size of 32×32px and 16 colors (namely this icon had only 4 colors). I had to redraw it completely to optimize it for the full avatar resolution of 150×150px, but it didn't lost its main advantage to be easy to recognize in smaller resolutions.
So, it doesn't mean anything like "I'm going to murder you silently", but I just like that simple picture.
I think some of these topics aren't really frequently asked questions
"Originally the term "FAQ" referred to the Frequently Asked Question itself, and the compilation of questions and answers was known as a "FAQ list" or some similar expression. The term became more frequently used to refer to the list, and a text consisting of questions and their answers is often called a FAQ regardless of whether the questions are actually frequently asked, if they are asked at all, or if there is even any way of asking questions."
I read the FAQ but I didn't find my answer
Feel free to contact me on my wall.

  • Olá, já que você é um dos Sysops mais ativos por aqui, eu percebi que acabaram de criar Bloons TDX. Este jogo até que existe, apesar de não ter o link para Download, mas está em um forum do Ninja Kiwi e até mesmo o Superjombombo já fez uma analise desse jogo, que até é muito divertido de jogar. Porém, ele não é um jogo oficial do Ninja Kiwi e não se tem administradores oficial do Site dando uma opinião sobre o jogo. Será que este artigo é bem vindo aqui mesmo assim?

    Translation:
    Hello, since you are one of the most active Sysops around here, I realize that they have just created Bloons TDX. This game until it exists, although it does not have the link to Download, but it is in a forum of Ninja Kiwi and even Superjombombo has already made an analysis of this game, which is even a lot of fun to play. However, it is not an official game of Ninja Kiwi and there are no official administrators of the Site giving an opinion about the game. Is this article welcome here anyway?

  • So, hello, and hopefully, this doesn’t count as spamming your wall. The problem is very similar to the BTD:FPS board. In the Make a parent for a bloon in the General Discussion, there is a user who blatantly calls others a noob by spamming unhelpful and rude messages. It is annoying, (and even more annoying to targeted people) and can you please take care of the problem so it hopefully never happens again. I don’t get why these people don’t read the policies.

    • Thanks for reporting it. The person seems to be changing their IP address, so I have blocked the whole IP range.

      Some people come to the internet only to make others angry which is how they deal with their own frustration, or just boredom. When they really make you angry, you give them what they want, so the best reaction is asking them to stop calmly (if their behavior is not much bad) or just ignoring them and reporting them to admins.

  • Hello, I adressed the problem with Qwertyxp2000 already, but he said that you are the person to adress the problem. The problem is that on the BTD:FPS Concept Board, a Contributor keeps spamming stuff like “IT’S TIIIIIMMME TO STOP!!” and it is annoying us all out. Is there a way to prevent these nonsensical actions by that user?

  • Apparently, when I was editing the Monkey Ace page, I came across with an abuse filter thing about excessive caps, and I didn't even use caps (maybe I did, because of the "O" for the O flight path). I was correcting details that were in the Manual of Style, like 2nd person stuff. Why was I abuse filtered?

    Edit: I tried again and it also said that message, although I edited Snap Freeze and no abuse filter was present.

    • Hi, sorry for the inconvenience, I will try to explain the issue:

      If you make a change in a text, the wiki interface takes it as if you removed the whole line of text and added a new line of text, even if you change only one letter. And, you edited a line of text with the comment below picture "Where's my landing station? Why do I have a nuke? Why do I feel invisible!?…" that already contained excessive caps. So, the abuse filer took it as if you added the text with caps.

      I have just replased the caps text with a regular text, so should be fine now. There are probably more similar cases on the wiki from the times before we had the abuse filter, so feel free to fix these excessive caps, if you find them.

      Thank you for your continuous editing.

    • You’re welcome! I am just wondering why everyone is using “you” statements, even though the Manual of Style said to avoid using second person.
