Super Mario

This form does not need a gallery. This gallery hardly illustrates Super Mario as a form; rather, it showcases all basically instances in platformers where Mario is in normal proportion. "Super Mario" is supposed to be normal-sized Mario. After all, that's the title of the series! "Normal" (a.k.a. small) Mario gets its own page because Mario appears smashed and is NOT usually drawn like that. You might as well just merge Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, and Rosalina's galleries together because they are all depicted as "Super", except a few cases.

The Super Form, to have its own gallery, needs to have many more images like the one shown here. Or, like this one. And that one. Basically, ones that show a comparison or at least illustrate "Super Mario" as a form.

But the gallery doesn't do this.

Proposer: Mario (talk)
Deadline: October 1, 2014, 23:59 GMT


  1. Mario (talk) This isn't a gallery of the Super Form. It's a gallery of Mario-and-friends-as-normally-depicted.
  2. Tsunami (talk) In fact, some images of the first part of the gallery aren't in Super form. And this should be called Super form (gallery), BTW. This can easily be deleted, just make sure the images appearing only in the gallery won't get unused.
  3. Ninelevendo (talk) Bunch of Mario pics with random pictures of other people. And what's with there being only one Mario Golf image?
  4. 'Shroom64 (talk) Per all. Gallery:Super Mario isn't so super.
  5. SuperYoshiBros (talk) This exists? Per all.
  6. Walkazo (talk) - Like I said on the forum, the gallery's unnecessary. Keep the few illustrative images on the main article and that's enough, I reckon. Leaving this talk page's proposal as a record will hopefully stop anyone from misguidedly remaking the gallery in the future.
  7. Mario4Ever (talk) Per all.
  8. Lumastar (talk) This is the most idiotic thing I have seen on this wiki. Per all.
  9. Koopakoolklub (talk)
  10. Superfiremario (talk) Per all.

I'm skeptical of it's usefulness in describing Super Mario as a form, as it implies that all the world tour pics are of the Super Mario form, which I don't think is what we want. - Ninelevendo's Sig Image 09:23, 24 September 2014 (EDT)

This strikes me as an editorial concern more than something in need of community input. Too many images? Several of them aren't examples of the target subject? Remove some. -- Shyghost.PNGGhost JamShyghost.PNG 21:51, 18 September 2014 (EDT)

Remove the images, yes, but you'd be removing the overwhelming majority of these images to the point where the gallery won't be necessary any more. Hence why I nominated this for deletion.

I assume we have a set minimum number of images a gallery page requires to exist as a gallery page, I would say images would be removed down to that minimum at editorial discretion. Since the gallery inclusion movement was about having an active visual archive of supplemental material for as many topics as was feasible, I'd argue that deletion would result in us repeating history when someone brings up creating another gallery page for the same thing and people blanket agree like they always do when it comes to resource reorganizing. Given that, I submit that out right deleting something we can fix is like jumping into a burning building to escape a flood; a problem is solved by engaging in another problem.
Words, words, Ghost Jam needs to get to the damn point, words, my point is do editors think it's fixable or worth being fixed before we move forward with a delete? That's what I'm asking. -- Shyghost.PNGGhost JamShyghost.PNG 06:10, 19 September 2014 (EDT)
Okay, but I've seen only around three images and maybe very few screenshots that's worth keeping. This isn't something we can improve on. I decided to make this proposal because the vast majority of the images are not needed, thus a gallery page won't be needed. The images that do qualify should be moved to the main page as a regular gallery. I'm not jumping the gun, or diving headfirst into a body of water from a burning building.

Now that I think about it, what should we do about sprites? --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 18:15, 27 September 2014 (EDT)

Same principle, add to the actual page if needed. - Ninelevendo's Sig Image 18:26, 27 September 2014 (EDT)
Or just add them to the Gallery:*insert asshole's name* pages if they're not already added. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 18:59, 28 September 2014 (EDT)
