This is a bit minor, but could a systems operator replace the link to the Marioverse with [[MarioWiki:Marioverse|Marioverse]]?Knife (talk) 00:32, 20 July 2007 (EDT)

Done. --KPH2293 00:36, 20 July 2007 (EDT)

User help[edit]

There are a bunch of really helpful user related pages. But whenever, I need to find them, I have to search all over the wiki only to give up in defeat. Could some one make a section/ page devoted to helpful links. e.g. there is a page that has the percentage of edits by searching a user and calculating contribution percentage. now I can't find it. Or being able to easily find needy pages. (under categories) There may be links to them somewhere or I may just have to know what to look for, but this is really starting to bug me. Even an explanation for newer users on what the links at the top right do. There may be a really simple answer for this, I just don't know it. If you could help me, that would be great.

p.s. The toolbar on left looks really nice and everything, so it shouldn't be there. Just somewhere I can find it. GG445 Me! "...?" heiho!

Could we?[edit]

Could we make a help page about how to make a PipeProject? MP8 DryBones.pngHappy Halloween! Bone Goomba.png

I think that would be a good idea, but I think it already says how to make one on the PipeProject article. Tadaa!2.gifSupremoTadaaa!.gif

Externally Linked Images[edit]

I know there's a way to embed images from some other place on the internet other than this wiki by typing the url into something, but I can't find anything in the help pages that says how to do that. SKmaric (talk)

It has been done here, but even if you look at the syntax for it, it's still not clear how it was embedded. 'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits)


I applied for the Shroom a little while ago, about a week ago and Crocodile Dippy Ignored me! I've been waiting but what do I do? YoshiMonsta (talk)

I'm new to this wiki and I see some things that need to be edited but I can't edit any page or my userpage. (But I'm not bad at wikicode I'm on ither wikis) Mr Squid (talk) 14:18, 13 July 2016 (EDT)

Some pages are protected so only autoconfirmed users can edit them, which includes your userpage. To become an autoconfirmed user, you have to have been a user for at least four days and have made at least five edits on non-protected pages. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:49, 13 July 2016 (EDT)

Time Zone[edit]

Which Time Zone the Wiki used? --LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 18:25, 19 November 2016 (EST)

According to the signature timestamps, it's Eastern Standard Time. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:27, 19 November 2016 (EST)

Image sources[edit]

Is there information anywhere about how the images the wiki uses are obtained? They are great!

Users upload them from various sources. You can learn more at Help:Image. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:21, June 28, 2020 (EDT)


I remember seeing something somewhere about how you're allowed to upload some five custom images to the Wiki. How do you do that? -Mags (talk) 11:32, July 13, 2020 (EDT)

You upload them like any other image. You can learn more at MarioWiki:Personal images. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:37, July 13, 2020 (EDT)
Great, thanks.-Mags (talk) 12:51, July 13, 2020 (EDT)

I can't create pages[edit]

I've been trying to create a new article recently, but every time I do I get an error message and the site logs me out so that when I sign back in it resets! I'm sure I've been autoverified since I've created my user page, so I have no idea why this is happening. If anyone could help, I'd be very grateful. NintendoFan08 (talk) 09:24, October 13, 2022 (EDT)

Can you send the text you're trying to save to me using Special:Contact so I can inspect it? Thanks --Steve (talk) Get Firefox 11:16, October 13, 2022 (EDT)
I will do so as soon as possible. Sorry I wasn’t able to reply sooner. NintendoFan08 (talk) 12:37, October 19, 2022 (EDT)
I think I figured out the problem, so this was basically a false alarm. Sorry for any inconvenience. NintendoFan08 14:22, October 26, 2022 (EDT)

How do you make a contents list?[edit]

The subject speaks for itself. NintendoFan08 13:32, October 26, 2022 (EDT)

Not really, what do you mean by "contents list?" Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:24, October 26, 2022 (EDT)
I think the person meant the contents table. It looks like it automatically appears if you have four or more headings/subheadings. KoolKoopa (talk) 14:31, October 26, 2022 (EDT)
Otherwise, you can use __TOC__. But that's not what this page is about... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:57, October 26, 2022 (EDT)

My article can't be linked to[edit]

I created an article under the name "G-SHOCK x Super Mario Bros.", but everywhere I link it to doesn't work! I tried it in Category:Merchandise, nothing. I tried putting it on my user page, still nothing. Yet, when you type it into the search bar, it works fine! I have tried removing the stub label but that did nothing. I have currently created 3 articles so far and has never happened before. Does anyone know what's going on? Any help would be massively appreciated.

You made the title G-Shock x Super Mario Bros. --Steve (talk) Get Firefox 16:26, November 3, 2022 (EDT)
Huh, that’s funny because I’m sure I created it with “Shock” in all capital letters. Oh well, thanks for the help! This was signed by NintendoFan08 16:34, November 3, 2022 (EDT)
