    Rest in Peace, Walkazo

    I haven't been very active around NIWA, so I only found out today. I decided to visit my old account here again to express my condolences. I didn't know her very well and haven't been here in years, so I'm not one who can or should be saying much, but I do remember her as a great contributor and...

    Why does there even need to be a Donkey Kong Wiki

    I'm guessing there is a Donkey Kong Wiki because whoever made it wanted to run their own wiki. There are millions of websites about the exact same thing as already existing websites; you will hardly find one that doesn't have "clones". It must be taken into consideration, however, that all of...

    Serious discussion about serious topics.

    I don't know if the Dutch translation of "elite" is usually interpreted like that, but as pointed out above, it really doesn't mean that in English, sorry. It's derived from a word meaning "chosen" or "elected" and tends to refer to a group of people...

    What game did you last play?!?!?!?

    A Link to the Past :3

    Why did you choose your username?

    Didn't we have a thread like this before? I seem to recall explaining this long ago... Maybe it was on a different forum... Ah well. Velli is short for Vellisia, the dragoness in my avatar, who started out as a minor character in a novel I wrote but who I have grown to like a lot :3 The...

    Who thinks Glover is underrated?

    Not everyone had the kind of money required to buy a Nintendo 64. I was "lucky" to be able to even buy the PC version, so I was even more upset with the controls as I had spent a lot of money on the game and it is thoroughly unenjoyable the way it is. (I can't comment on the Nintendo 64 version...

    Who thinks Glover is underrated?

    Oh gosh, Glover. I have that game for PC; bought it 'cause it looked so awesome and fun. It wasn't. It's been a long time since I played it, but I do recall the controls being terrible and making it more painful than anything else to play, so the people criticising those do have a point; they're...

    Do you live close to a country border?

    I live about an hour (maybe more, but not significantly so) from the Netherlands/Germany border (Groningen border, to be exact :p) and have been to the Netherlands a couple times :3

    Do you wear glasses?

    Don't wear them (though my boyfriend does) and hope I won't need to. Actually, even if I had to, I probably wouldn't wear them; I look terrible with glasses :< (Then again, I also look terrible without glasses... But if I needed them and didn't wear them, I couldn't see my ugliness in the mirror...

    Woah, Claymates :O I have that game. Picked it up waaaay back at some second-hand store while on a holiday somewhere; don't remember where, I was very young at the time. It came with an English-language manual for some reason instead of a German one, so it would take me a couple years from then...

    Common Mistakes

    "Birdo is female" is hardly a mistake; Birdo clearly displays a female gender identity. Calling her male because she was born male isn't exactly a very nice thing to do; in fact, it's downright offensive. And Being transgender means that your gender identity differs from your biological sex; it...

    If a Mario character could come to life, who would you want?

    Who do you play in SMB2/SMBUSA?

    The Princess :3 Love the floating, makes it so much easier to land precisely where I want after jumping.

    Which emoticons do you normally use?

    Let's see... unless I'm using something that has actual smiley images that I like (Skype comes to mind, which has very cute ones), I use :3 , 3: , >:3 , 3:< , x3 , =^w^= , =°w°= and... some noseless classics. Also 3:3 when I'm a cow.
