Welcome to my talk page. Add your message at the BOTTOM of the page, and put four tildes (the ~ symbol) at the end so I can see your username (or ip address if you add a message while logged out. I recommend making an account before adding a message if you must) and when the message got added.

If you wanna talk to me, I'd rather you mention/DM me on twitter, tumblr, or put a comment on my GBAtemp page. You can also email me or my Wii. (yes, everything sent to that 2nd address will really get forwarded to me Wii!)

About external redirects

External redirects are not supported by MediaWiki; they could pose issues, since if WiiBrew had a page redirecting to WiiUBrew, and that same WiiUBrew page redirected to the original WiiBrew page, the server would be overloaded with requests. This can normally be prevented by anti-double-redirect mechanisms, but those don’t work if the redirect goes to the outside.

Instead, just directly link the whole WiiBrew URL. Yes I know, interwikis would be nice. Hallowizer2 (talk) 02:07, 16 December 2021 (CET)
