Welcome to the Main Page Talk. This is where technical issues go.


How do you upload a file? Mario MK7.png User:Mario Kart 7 Rules (talk · edits) Luigi MK7.png 19:50, 27 February 2015 (EST)

Click on the link on the sidebar that says "Upload File". However, this page isn't a Q&A for how to edit the wiki: we have MarioWiki:FAQ and its talk page for this sort of thing, although you should just read MarioWiki:Manual of Style and look through our many policy and help pages first, as most of the answers to potential questions are already explained somewhere. - Walkazo 20:22, 27 February 2015 (EST)

Thanks a lot! Mario MK7.png User:Mario Kart 7 Rules (talk · edits) Luigi MK7.png 20:56, 27 February 2015 (EST)

Wait, is it ok if I upload a non Nintendo image? Mario MK7.png User:Mario Kart 7 Rules (talk · edits) Luigi MK7.png 21:00, 27 February 2015 (EST)

I need to know how to make a image your personal image. Mario MK7.png User:Mario Kart 7 Rules (talk · edits) Luigi MK7.png 08:18, 28 February 2015 (EST)

Read MarioWiki:Personal Images. Like I said, most info is already available somewhere: please look for answers yourself rather than posting questions here. This page is for discussing matters relevant to the Main page or wiki as a whole. - Walkazo 11:19, 28 February 2015 (EST)

I got it now. Thanks a lot! Mario MK7.png User:Mario Kart 7 Rules (talk · edits) Luigi MK7.png 17:31, 28 February 2015 (EST)

How do you make a new version of a image? Mario MK7.png User:Mario Kart 7 Rules (talk · edits) Luigi MK7.png 18:47, 1 March 2015 (EST)

You have to STOP asking these questions here. This is not a Q&A page. You upload new versions of an image by clicking the "Upload a new version of this file" link on the image's page. Now please, read some policy pages instead of inundating this page with questions about really basic, simple, intuitive things. - Walkazo 19:11, 1 March 2015 (EST)

April Fools Day 2015

April Fools Day is in less than a month. I was wondering, am I allowed on that day to humorously change the News section, Did You Know section, and make edits that usually would be considered "vandalism?" Of course, I know there would be some boundaries on what is and what isn't acceptable, but I can think of some funny things to put on the front page. This may be a stretch, but maybe I could make some fake articles as well? I mean, we have done this in the past years... Andymii (talk) 17:20, 5 March 2015 (EST)

We're not planning anything this year, and even if we did, it wouldn't be open season for every random user to add random garbage. --Glowsquid (talk) 18:06, 5 March 2015 (EST)

Okay, then. Andymii (talk)

why was i banned from the forums?

as it says. i really don't know why i was banned? like i don't even get any form of warning or anythings beforehand? Aiko HeiwaMSGContribs 01:02, 15 March 2015 (EDT)

You were banned for constant agrgessive behaviour toward other members, which is the reason you were permed in the first place. --Glowsquid (talk) 09:26, 15 March 2015 (EDT)
but that isn't FAIR, i wasn't acting aggressive at all! it says i was on thin ice but i was never informed i was on thin ice at all. i might as well just hurt myself now, since that was one of the few forums i gave a damn about Aiko HeiwaMSGContribs 10:37, 15 March 2015 (EDT)
So is my ban appeal regarding my entirely unfair and justified ban going to be ignored? Aiko HeiwaMSGContribs 04:04, 23 March 2015 (EDT)
Don't try to appeal your ban on one venue by making a scene on another venue: if anything, dragging problems around the community is more likely to cement your original block and could get you in trouble elsewhere (i.e. here) as well. Also, you're wrong that you weren't warned, because you were told that you were on your last strike - over a year ago, when your original ban was graciously lifted. Littering the community hub with your personal problems worked out for you that time, surprisingly, but it looks like your luck's not going to change this time around, so please stop posting here. - Walkazo 20:13, 23 March 2015 (EDT)
So what's your explanation for all the other transgender people who are accepted members of our community? - 2257(Talk)Amita Poochy! 22:03, 23 March 2015 (EDT)
I doubt they would ban you for being transgender. Also, threatening suicide won't help, and please drop it, you were told that you were banned for constant aggressive behavior towards other members. .::Toadette::. (talk) 22:06, 23 March 2015 (EDT)
EXCEPT I wasn't being aggressive towards ANYONE! And why is it fair that other user's act like assholes and they don't get punished, but I do?!? IT'S NOT GODDAMN FAIR. And it's not threatening suicide, I will do it. Aiko HeiwaMSGContribs 10:27, 25 March 2015 (EDT)

Oi, I'm trans and I'm helping run the bloody newsletter for this site; Turb is also trans and is an admin here. Everyone that's treated me like ass for being trans on the forums has been jumped on immediately and one even got banned for it. I know more than anyone else the kind of crap transfolk have to go through in society, I do, but don't use that card here, because it's absolutely not applicable. -Crocodile Dippy (talk) 01:58, 24 March 2015 (EDT)

Again, dragging forum drama onto the wiki is not acceptable, nor is the rest of your behaviour here, including making suicide threats, which we know to be hollow and something you have done on other websites as well. As you were told on your talk page, if you continue this, you will be blocked from the wiki. - Walkazo 15:03, 25 March 2015 (EDT)
That TV Tropes account isn't me, but fine, block me, I don't give a shit anymore. I just wanted to have my ban lowered to a few months ban, but if you're all going to be unfair, then block me from this site. Aiko HeiwaMSGContribs 00:02, 27 March 2015 (EDT)

So someone calls other people unfair after invoking transphobia and threatening suicide with the primary intent of influencing administrative action.

...sheesh, what a way to go. --Lord Grammaticus (talk) 13:29, 29 March 2015 (EDT)

Being the grammar police user I am, I can't help but notice that the banner on top of the wiki (the one saying "Issue XCVI of The 'Shroom has been released, be sure to check it out!") is a comma splice. Does anyone have any idea how to fix it? --Andymii (talk) 22:31, 21 March 2015 (EDT)

Shroob Planet Article - Glitch?

So I was in the article Shroob Planet and I opened "discussion" then I selected "article" and it redirected to this:

I don't know if this is a thing with my computer or with everyones, But can someone take a look at it?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Koopinator (talk).

The problem was that the article had been moved from "Shroob planet" to "Shroob Planet" but the talk page wasn't moved with it because there was already a redirect leading back to the lowercase talk page on "Talk:Shroob Planet", blocking the move (and when you clicked on the discussion from "Shroob Planet", you were redirected to the unmoved discussion of the deleted "Shroob planet" page). It's fixed now. - Walkazo 12:46, 26 March 2015 (EDT)

Reverting joke news

I believe this should be done, what with the Nintendo Direct that is certain to have Mario game info. Laikue (talk | contribs) 17:19, 1 April 2015 (EDT)

We'll probably do it tomorrow. MK8 BabyLuigi Icon.pngo°(T|C) 17:19, 1 April 2015 (EDT)
Before any changes are done, let's wait until the Direct actually happens instead of speculating about what might happen. Hello, I'm Time Turner.Time Turner.png

So now we DO have April Fools news, directly contradicting what Glowsquid said a few posts above when I suggested helping (*sarcastic "hmph"* :P). Andymii (talk) 20:48, 1 April 2015 (EDT)

Well obviously we weren't going to announce that we were going to do another prank this year. It kinda ruins the joke - like when people post "this is a joke". If you want to do something, PM one of us, but we actually plan these things for months (it's the one fun ting we do behind the scenes) so in all likelihood, the answer will be "no". It's our right to keep it in-house: alongside the Anniversary, it's the only real public stunt the wiki pulls so we need to ensure it's well done, and users striking out on their own can undermine our efforts, or otherwise get out of hand. The official stuff's being archived, but the unauthorized fake FA nomination will be deleted shortly, as we don't want a copycat trend setting in if we keep trying to do these events moving forward. We hope the users understand. - Walkazo 22:20, 1 April 2015 (EDT)

Random article ?

Good Evening, Could you do it in the home page, let me explain:

1. Today, April, 11 2015, there Toadette, but tomorrow, there will be example: Bowser

2. I ask of Steven Shinn to ask is opinion so be accepted my idea.

3. I thank Porplemontage have created this wiki ! ----YoshiYellow-MK8.png Captain Yoshi (Yes ?)YoshiYellow-MK8.png 14:05, 11 April 2015 (EDT)

No. - Walkazo 16:56, 11 April 2015 (EDT)
What ? No ? ----YoshiYellow-MK8.png Captain Yoshi (Yes ?)YoshiYellow-MK8.png 04:59, 12 April 2015 (EDT)
It's because you seem to have misinterpreted what this "random article" is. It's not just some random article someone got from hitting the random page button, it's actually one of our featured articles (the best ones on the wiki). These change weekly on a Saturday to the next FA in the queue. It's a system that's been done for years now, and it won't be changed to showcase some random article from the wiki. Yoshi876 (Talk)
Nor will a "random article" feature be added in addition to the FA. - Walkazo 15:22, 12 April 2015 (EDT)
Ah... Ok ----Captain Yoshi YoshiYellow-MK8.png 13:19, 13 April 2015 (EDT)

You may know this already, but jf you really need a random article, there's always the Random Article button on the left. Andymii (talk) 18:18, 13 April 2015 (EDT)

New Mario Kart 8 Tracks

You're welcome. Aidan the Aura Master 22:26, 14 April 2015 (EDT)

Do I really deserve it?

Over a year ago I [TVTrash] was banned from the forums because I didn't change my behavior within my original month long ban. I then realized I was an immature kid who whined because of someone else's opinion. I understand what I did was wrong and I am ready to move on. So with that being said, should I really be unbanned from the forums? MARIAO 01:18, 19 April 2015 (EDT)

As was said in the last section complaining about forum bans, this is NOT the place to try and appeal forum bans. Ask the forum mods directly: don't post your personal problems on the wiki community hub. Walk away now, or you could get an official warning over it. - Walkazo 12:35, 19 April 2015 (EDT)
