Hello Camailleon. I don't know if I am supposed to reply to you on your discussion page or mine but I have a reply on my discussion page. psionl0 (talk)

Hello again Mr. Camailleon. My name is Kozia, but i played on nick 'robby' and now i create account and send image on site in gianna highscores but his gone. I don't know why :(. Thanks for help with this heavy situations.

Hello Kozia, your image is still there, it is not visible on the English "Recent changes" page as this wiki is connected to the German C64-Wiki and they use the same images. As the German C64-Wiki is the "main" wiki it is kept and stored there and made available from there. You made your changes in the German article and I can imagine that this is very confusing for you. You were automatically led there, which I know is not ideal but our technical admin is very busy privately at the moment and cannot fix this. Thanks for your score. I also put it into the English article :) It would also be nice if you would sign your message on a talk site with the second button from the right above the editor window. --Camailleon 17:03, 7 March 2014 (CET)

Helllo Mr. Camailleon. I have a highscore record in Giana Sisters, but i can't upload print screen - i don't know how and need help with this. Anyway my record image is here http:\\\index\ccs1.png Thank You very much!

Hello Mr. Unknown - you need to have an account to upload an image. I can upload it for you, but you need to give me a name to put in. But it would be better if you did it yourself. :) --Camailleon 20:21, 6 March 2014 (CET)

Hi Camailleon,

Can you add by your translated articles the wiki-link to the german article, please. For example [[DE:Benutzer:Camailleon]]. Thanks --Jodigi 15:59, 30 September 2008 (CEST)

Sure. Who creates these links for the English articles in the German Wiki? --Camailleon 15:23, 4 October 2008 (CEST)

Sometimes I, when I have got the time for this... otherthise (I hope) other wiki-user or -admins. --Jodigi 22:29, 4 October 2008 (CEST)

Hey Camailleon!

Thank you for translating such a long article! :) (The Bard's Tale) Though the German original is written by me, I simply lack time to translate such long ones at present. Great work as usual as far as I can judge after just skimming it.

Keep it up! Best regards, --TheRyk 18:49, 11 October 2009 (CEST)

Thank you very much :). I would appreciate it if anyone would proof-read my articles, as I know that sometimes I have problems with the style or choice of right words. The Bard's Tale was a long one and I translated it in little bits in a word document. ;-) I myself could not write such long articles in German, so thank YOU for writing the German article in the first place. --Camailleon 19:39, 11 October 2009 (CEST)

Just wanted to drop by and say thank you for helping with the Scarabaeus article. I'm a bit of a wiki newbie, so any further help or constructive criticism you could give would be much appreciated. <3 Mattykins 18:03, 1 January 2010 (CET)

No problem, I am always glad to help. (I also was a beginner once ;-)). Don't hesitate to ask if you have a question or problem. --Camailleon 18:13, 1 January 2010 (CET)


Don't worry about "und..." mistakes. It was a nice starting place for editing on this wiki.

Hardware Articles[edit]

I started cleaning up some hardware articles. I think I may play around in a sandboxed page and see if I can't improve the hardware infobox a lot.

Okay, go ahead :) I cannot contribute much to the hardware section so I am not the best contact for this. --Camailleon (talk) 18:52, 7 March 2016 (CET)

New Template Feedback[edit]

Create permissions[edit]

Hi Camailleon,

I got hold a Rushware Keypad, a rare input device for the C64, and I would like to create an article about it. Therefore I registered on the site, but apparently I can only edit pages, not create new articles. I assume this is some kind of anti-vandalism measure, but I can't find any info about what I need to do to get create permissions. Could you assist here?

unused sections[edit]

Hi Camailleon, just noticed your changes on the english "Shotgun" article. When I translated the German one into the English one, I left out those empty sections on purpose (e.g. "Cheats") and I also left out the "Highscore" section because in my opinion it makes no sense, even in the German article where there is a sentence (which was actually written by myself). But now I am wondering if there is some kind of "rule" that even empty sections should be kept? Or any reason why this would be desired? Not complaining here, just asking how it should be handled in the future. --ZeHa (talk) 14:58, 1 December 2016 (CET)

Hello Zeha, yes it is better to have empty sections than to leave them out, because it is easier for someone to simply fill in something into an existing section. We also have a structure for game articles (see which is automatically checked (see here: Concerning the highscore, it is also an information that there is no highscore possible if someone reads about the game. Therefore it is always better to have all sections, which then can be filled up little by little. The aim is to have something in each section. Hope you can understand that now! The rules are the same for the German wiki. --Camailleon (talk) 18:58, 1 December 2016 (CET)

C64 Screen Font Support for Wiki?[edit]

Hello Camailleon,

It would be helpful if C64-Wiki supported a C64 screen-like font in CSS. This would be most useful for articles that discuss BASIC at length. Also, in-depth articles on certain applications could benefit too, see my article on SpeedScript as an example. This can be accomplished server-side with two things:

  1. . The Universal Language Selector plugin. It's an open source plugin used by Wikipedia and other major wikis.
  2. . The C64 TrueType Font collection. This font collection has a very good free-usage license.

It would just be a matter of installing the plugin and uploading the WOFF font files to the server to put this in place. I know it's always a good idea to keep plugin count low (to reduce exploit risk) but I think we have a very good use case and the risk appears low.

Once installed, it would be a simple matter of using "span" and "font family" to have CSS insert the C64 font onto the page. WOFF fonts are well supported now by all major browsers, including on mobile devices.

Please let me know your thoughts.
