Sure, any kind of help is appreciated, thanks. :) Castaway2000 (talk) 23:32, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Of course. I can go add it on the main page. :) Castaway2000 (talk) 06:03, 13 December 2016 (UTC)


I've promoted you to rollback. The rules on that page aren't in account yet since the community here is very small but you do need to show yourself worthy of the powers. Anyway, enjoy. By the way, unrelated note, do you know how to create a gallery & lyrics namespace? I wanted to create a unique namespace for that. Castaway2000 (talk) 17:37, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Merci beaucoup for the rollback powers, I hope I can prove myself worthy of them! :) As for the gallery and lyrics namespaces, you need to email ShoutWiki about it. --Twilight~Sparkle This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 17:52, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Apologies about the Bug

Hi Rock-O-Jello, I apologize about that weird common.js bug and how I got upset about it. Thankfully Saftzie helped resolve the issue even when I gave up. Castaway2000 (talk) 04:53, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

It's fine, glad its resolved. Twilight~Sparkle This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 20:29, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

The Rules

Hi, thank you once again for helping Green Day Wiki. I really appreciate it. I've told others that there's no good one thus far and the Wikia variation is a messy disaster that's either poor Wikipedia copy+pastes or lyric pages. Anyway,
for the wiki policies I want to tell you that swearing is allowed on the articles here (if in a factual or informative content, or for lyrics) as the band has a handful of songs with swearing. I believe that wikis are not supposed to be censored, even Wikipedia has policies on censorship. I was just saying this because you censor the lyrics on Legit Lyrics Wiki]. Castaway2000 (talk) 22:06, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
You're quite welcome for the help, I love Green Day.

As for the swearing, I understand about it being allowed here. I only censor it on Legit Lyrics because i personally don't like swearing but I understand your reasoning. This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 22:18, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

I understand your reason for not liking it, but thank you for understanding. I hope the swearing doesn't bug you on this wiki too much. Castaway2000 (talk) 22:35, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Nah I don't mind I just ignore it. This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 22:37, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Section organization

Rock-o-Jello, would you like to help me with something? I want to know the best way to structure the articles by section, like on "Geek Stink Breath". What do you think the best way to organize it would be? Castaway2000 (talk) 02:13, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

I think the best way would be this:
  1. Song meaning
  2. Lyrics
  3. Release and promotion
  4. Music video
  5. Other versions This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 21:41, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I do feel as if the "Other versions" should be merged with the main section or be higher on the list. What do you think personally? Castaway2000 (talk) 23:30, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Probably a part of the main section. This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 00:15, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
I was also wondering how we can add in liner notes (e.g. who recorded the song, produced it, mixed it, etc.). Do you perhaps have any idea on what we can do? Castaway2000 (talk) 19:43, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
I could make a song infobox. --This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 19:47, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. :) Castaway2000 (talk) 03:18, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Bienvenu. --This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 19:53, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

New infobox design

Hi Rock-O-Jello, the previous template designs were bugging me, especially since i wanted a grey/maroon color for the infoboxes. I've also added #if: parameters so that a row isn't used if not implemented in an article (e.g. mixer =). Here's for reference. Castaway2000 (talk) 04:41, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

I agree, that looks a lot better. Also you can call me "Rocko" if you want. :P This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 00:09, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

My Activity

Hi Rock-o, sorry for not being that active here. I get sidetracked with other projects. I will say thank you for you and Mon3y for still editing the wiki while I'm busy doing other projects. :) Castaway2000 (talk) 21:55, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

It's fine, I'm easily distracted myself and well everyone has a life outside the Internet. And you're quite welcome for the help out here, I'm a big Green Day fan myself! :D --Countess Vizier Lady Queen Colonel Jello 16:09, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

Navbox Issue

For reference, Template: Navbox. There is a issue with the width being stretched to 100%. Here is the code that changes the box's width:

<table width="90%" class="navbox"> 
<!-- ignore the class="navbox" -->

The width is set to 90% yet it still stretches to 100%. I've even tried changing the templates width to 50% but it doesn't work, but what I do know is it may have something to do with the theme of the Green Day Wiki. Can you figure this sh** out? -Luigim1 (talk) 19:00, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Sure, I'll try using a code from my personal wiki and see if that works. --Countess Vizier Lady Queen Colonel Jello 19:05, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me use your template, as it fixed the issue I am having. Really appreciated!! -Luigim1 (talk) 19:53, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
No problem. :) --Countess Vizier Lady Queen Colonel Jello 15:31, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Explanation About Copying Articles

Hey Rocko,

I've been meaning to explain this for a while now but I feel like I should tell why I copied articles from GD Wikia and Wikipedia, even though you're not necessarily for it. The reason I took from Wikia is because I wanted to rescue the articles from that host (we are already drastically different from the GD Wikia wiki anyway) and I only recycled Wikipedia info, to my knowledge, from deleted articles or page revisions, due to notability guidelines there. If they don't want the info, I figure another source could use it (and with rewrites where needed). Hopefully that should explain it. Castaway2000 (talk) 02:03, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

You're not really "copying" articles from the spoon, per se. The whole point of forking, you see, is to move the entire site over to another server.
As for copying from Wikipedia, I guess you have a point. Sorry for any inconveniences. --Can I drink this?Do you want to EXPLODE!? 15:24, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Admin and Bureaucrat list perms

I have a question, why do you remove the listed permission "Rollback"? -luigim1 PizzaPasta (talk) 00:55, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Because rollback abilities are included in admin rights, but Admins don't have rollback rights. --Can I drink this?Do you want to EXPLODE!? 20:25, 12 May 2017 (UTC)


My friend luigim1 brought me back here. I've been distracted with other projects and irl stuff. I can't guarantee much edits but I am happy to help out a bit more. Castaway2000 (talk) 23:51, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

It's fine, I understand. Welcome back, Castaway! --Eatza*Pizza 01:17, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
Yo! Welcome back! :) -luigim1 (talk)


I'm on Cloudsdale if you want to chat with me. How often do you go on there? Castaway2000 (talk) 19:43, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Every couple hours or so. Luckily they've got a backlog tho, so I can answer your messages later or whatever. --Eatza*Pizza 21:01, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
