I was wondering if we should make an answers wiki for the Nintendo Wiki. I think it would help people get answers to their questions and help us know what articles are lacking.
We already have the forums, but very few people use them and I think in an answers wiki people will feel more free to ask questions.

Recently as you may or may not know I set up a view counter on the Nintendo Wiki. It has been up and working for about a month and a half, so I'd thought I'd share the results with you.
According to Histats.com in the last month and a half we have had 115,409 Visitors and 280,426 Pageviews.
If you would like to see the site's stats go to: http://www.histats.com/viewstats/?act=2&sid=2031268
Though the stats there don't work completely with the "New Visitors" function.Read more >
With the recent small rash of vandalism here, I thought that it would be a good time to give some tips about spotting vandalism and how to stop it.
It is recommended that users check edits made by anonymous users, as they are the most likely to be vandalism. That being said, not all anonymous users are vandals.
If you find vandalism you should undo it immediately. When you find someone who is spamming or vandalizing the wiki you should report them to an admin, so that they can prevent them from continuing to vandalize the wiki. Do not leave a message on the vandal's talkpage, as it just encourages them.
These are some active admins that you can contact about vandals.

Recently while editing I started to get a bit bored, so I have decided to write a series of blog posts that will help new editors learn some neat tips and tricks to good editing.
For this post I will go over images.
]]Images are one of the most important part of wiki pages, they help the reader to understand the topic of the page.
Adding images is easy. To upload an image go to Special:Upload or click on the "Add a Photo" button on the "Latest photos" side bar. When uploading an image it is important to give it a good name that allows the image to easily be identified. For example if you have a picture that is Kirby's artwork from Kirby Squeak Squad you should give it a name like .
Next if you aren't using Special:Upload, click the "More Optio…
