Editing Permission Request

OK first things first, I am currently updating the template to add 4.1 and the Eruginusu (Name for now).

But first I am asking should I or can I? I mean I'm only going to be adding 1 new enemy and Keeping all the Old ones. Though for that I need to make a page for Eruginusu, I will do that too.

Also I wanted to state that I'm going to Create a page for the 'Greater Wild dragon' as it is very different from it's minions, and I just want approval for all this I am doing.

Should I also make separate pages for the Mutants?

I am writing this to make sure Everything I am doing won't make anyone mad. So Can I?

Also you might see a blog I made saying these exact words. I was just sending this to you as a message since I thought that you might not see the blog post and that You would for sure respond If I sent a message.

Yes, you absolutely have permission to do that. Sending me a message to my talk was smart, as it emails me (usually!) when someone posts there. :D
So yeah, go ahead and add in the Eruginusu (we can always change the name if necessary later on), as well as an article for the Greater Wild Dragon. Feel free to add him into the template as well. I say it would be great to have a page dedicated to the Mutants as well. -- Somarinoa (talk) 09:35, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

Scorpions words

Thanks! I've also added new enemies for GDF, though I won't create new pages for them. Going to start the page but won't finish it for Eruginusu because it's late for me (2:48am) also if you haven't noticed I did some major work to the wiki today :D - Scorpion
Thanks for all of the hard work! It is super appreciated! :D -- Somarinoa (talk) 07:29, March 29, 2015 (UTC)
Hey, Someone messed with the Fencer Page and now it's all messed up. I remember this being done to the other classes but I reversed those by undoing the latest revision, unfortunately someone did two edits to the fencer so I don't know what it said before, and I can't undo that edit and it's still messed up. I had forgetten about this, I was going to tell you sooner. Sorry. - Scorpion
I will take a look! Thanks for the heads up. -- Somarinoa (talk) 11:04, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
I actually got around to restoring the fencer page now. If you want to know how it looked before, go to edit history it will show you what it was before. Also 4.1 comes out in japan tomorrow :o - Scorpion
ARGH!! If only I could read and understand Japanese still! XO -- Somarinoa (talk) 06:44, April 2, 2015 
Hello! I'm dropping by to say hi! I haven't been active lately, but I'll be on every now and then. You seriously don't know how much I got into Metroid :P and also, Federation Force... .-.
Can't wait until 4.1 gets here, if it ever does. - Scorpion
Hey there! Don't worry, I understand. Metroid (specifically Metroid 3: Super Metroid) is #2 on my list of reasons I got so hopelessly addicted to video games (#1 being The Legend of Zelda). I hear Federation Force is getting a massive amount of flak. While I like spin offs and even have my own Metroid fan spin off, this one kind of worries me a bit. Though, then again, I know very little about it. As for 4.1, it doesn't seem like a game that would normally come out here in the US, as those kind of "upgrades" tend to be overlooked. But here's hoping! -- Somarinoa (talk) 07:41, July 4, 2015 (UTC)
Oh I hope 4.1 does come out in the US. If it does not happen, well I don't know what will be done for us... As for Federation Force, I'm going to admit, at first I was disappointed, but now that I know more about the Game I kind of look forward to the game even if my DS doesn't work anymore... -Scorpion
Yes, I also hope 4.1 comes out here. EDF is one of my top favorite series, and has been ever since 2017! I still know only very little about Federation Force, though living in the middle of nowhere means online gameplay is pretty much off-limits to me. I did greatly enjoy Hunters however (and still hope they bring some of those Space Hunters back again). -- Somarinoa (talk) 09:37, July 16, 2015 (UTC)
I never Finished Hunters, though the way it's played was strange. Then again, all the prime games have weird controls, but god damn they work! I love the Prime series, so as you can imagine I was wondering why they put Prime in Federation Force's title... I'm still hoping for American release of 4.1, but if we don't get it, we'll just have to stick to 2025. I seriously hope they make another game that jumps further into the future like in 2046 or something :D Imagine the sick technology we could see? Maybe Space battles!! O.O - Scorpion
What do you think of making seperate pages for each individual mutant? - Scorpion
I don't see any problem with that. Go for it! -- Somarinoa (talk) 07:49, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

Hey there, some time ago you wanted to request ownership of this wiki since the original founder hadn't been around für 2-3 years or so.  Is this still something you want to do ? Nobodx (talk) 18:02, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

Oh yes, of course it is. I had tried requesting it from Wikia once but never heard back from them. I am not even certain my request even made it all the way through at this point. But this is still one of my top favorite series and I'm known for my good bureaucratic habits. -- Somarinoa (talk) 07:49, October 10, 2015 (UTC)


Hi. I’ve given you admin and bureaucrat rights on this wikia as you requested. You now have the tools you need to clean up, customize and maintain the wikia.

Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can by found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wikia! -- Wendy (talk 03:39, December 23, 2015 (UTC)

Awesome! This will really help us out here. :D -- Somarinoa (talk) 08:35, December 23, 2015 (UTC)


We've got a vandal here. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 19:56, April 3, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! -- Somarinoa (talk) 09:36, April 4, 2016 (UTC)

Hey there

I'm working on building up the wiki a bit, but I don't know a lot about the early EDF games. I'm doing the best I can with research, but things like BM03 Vegalta and E551 Gigantus could use a hand from someone who's played the earluer games they appear in. Evil Tim (talk) 22:02, September 3, 2016 (UTC)

I'm all about improving the wiki. Are we just doing vehicles for now? -- Somarinoa (talk) 07:54, September 4, 2016 (UTC)
Well, it's mostly that I need help with any references to the games before Insect Armageddon, I played enough of 2017 on the Vita to know they added Fencer weapons to it and a few things about it, but then I spilled coffee on my Vita and that was that. :(
I'm generally working on building up sections related to 2025 and 4.1 since they're the ones I've played the most, I'm currently working on levels pages (and being silly-while-informative) and the pages for the four character classes: Fencer is more or less done (though the pages for his various series of weapons will take some time) and I got a fair way to finishing Wing Diver earlier. Evil Tim (talk) 14:47, September 4, 2016 (UTC)
Update on that: Ranger is done and I'm almost finished with Air Raider. :) Evil Tim (talk) 23:18, September 8, 2016 (UTC)
Rewritten Saurous for the crime of being awful, could you check the mission names? I'm going off a Japanese wiki for them, seems his name was always Solas over there. Also, that's where I got the name "Floating City Adan" for the big ship that turns up in GDF after the Mothership is defeated, does it have an official English name? Evil Tim (talk) 08:49, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
Heya, are you around anymore at all? Could I request admin or similar just in case I need to move pages over redirects, deal with disruptive users or something of that nature? I think my editing record speaks for itself in terms of being interested in expanding this wiki, and I've done admin work on other sites before (not just wikias, and so I'm pretty experienced with shouting at people and banning them :D Also wouldn't mind a chance to replace this boring treadplate background with something themed. Evil Tim (talk) 03:57, October 6, 2016 (UTC)
Um, hello? Could you at least unlock the article Earth Defense Force for me? It hasn't been updated since Insect Armageddon and is kind of a mess. Evil Tim (talk) 15:51, October 10, 2016 (UTC)

Um, hello?

Are you active on this wiki anymore? Evil Tim (talk) 22:16, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

I am, but I had to deal with my mother disappearing suddenly during a hunting trip. She was gone for about two months but she just appeared out of nowhere again the other day. I apologize for any inconvenience my sudden absence may have caused. I am back now. -- Somarinoa (talk) 01:28, October 21, 2016 (UTC)
Well, um, my sympathy, that sounds terrible and I hope she's ok now.
Just to repeat my previous request, could you unlock Earth Defense Force so I can get it up to date and less, well, awful? And could I request admins? Evil Tim (talk) 19:07, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
She's fine, she just went a little stir-crazy. We live in the middle of nowhere and she just couldn't take it anymore. She just neglected to let anyone know she was leaving and didn't make contact with anyone. I've unblocked the EDF page for you, and you've done a lot of work with us the past few months. I don't see a problem with giving you some additional rights. Congrats! -- Somarinoa (talk) 23:26, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
