Once upon a time, this was a banner used for MarioWiki:Proposals (although it was uploaded off-site).
Yet another horrible banner that graced older versions of MarioWiki:Proposals. Do you know the game origin of these images?

This is the subpage containing all the dumb proposals made. (Well, not all, just the funny ones. And also the April Fool's proposals, too.)

On another note, yes these images above were actual banners in our proposals page.

Pie for Everyone!!![edit]

I was sitting down doing some things when I stumbled onto this. Now everyone these days like pie, and it would be a really good snack to eat once in a while. Now, I will introduce the Pie Button! Here's how it works. Once you click the pie button, a message is sent to Wayoshi's Youtube account and an alarm would set off on Wayoshi's computer to check his youtube account and then Wayoshi would hax the pie onto your computer, then the pie would fall out of your computer fresh as new. (another way is to go to Duncan Donuts) We have many types of flavor, like apple, cherry, blackberry, cinnamon, etc and freedom. (No pot pie for you) Also, we can have hamburgers and fries from Burger King, and waffles.

Pie for Everyone (revisit)[edit]

LET THEM EAT CAKE! π-

Roughly seven years ago, I came to this very proposal page with an idea. Well, a hope, really. A hope for a better tomorrow. A hope for a more complete wiki. A hope for a happier editor. A hope....for pie.

Now, the idea was (and still is) simple. Basically, a pie button would be coded into the top bar that would send a signal to one of our sysops (the original proposal had Wayoshi being the baker of these pies, but I feel that we have sufficiently talented staff now that the work can be evenly divided with no issues), who would then prepare and deliver a piece of warm pie.

As one might expect, there were issues with this idea. Some people liked it (in fact, the proposal passed 12 to 10), others didn't (I recall at least one administrator at the time having a bit of a fit over the whole thing). And I understand. Change is a hard thing to swallow sometimes (unlike pie) and we are a bit of an argumentative bunch. Not to mention that there are some legitimate concerns with this plan. It'll be hard to code, hard to coordinate and could get fairly expensive fairly quickly. On the other hand, if executed with the level of precision and expertise we've developed over the last seven years, I believe that it's well within our current abilities. In fact, this may be something we can eventually take to NIWA and help other wikis grow. So, I bring this proposal back here today because we are a much different MarioWiki than in 2007. We've grown, in more ways than one and I think it's time to reconsider.

The actual division of labor of the idea will be discussed among the administrative staff come the passing of the proposal, but the basics read as follows:

  • A single editor may only make use of the pie button once every 72 hours, due to time constraints on part of the administrative staff.
  • Each piece of pie will cost $3 American. This is to cover basic delivery services. This price may need to be adjusted as the project fleshes itself out.
  • Third point to help make proposal look less like I just suddenly decided to do it at 3am and am basically bull$*@!ing it as I go.
  • Flavors of pie can be decided upon (via community input) at a later date, but the current plans are for cherry, blueberry, freedom and Randy Savage.

I encourage discussion and am more than willing to answer any design related questions the community might have. All I ask is that we keep it civil and work towards a better, pie filled tomorrow.

Delicious Pie
  1. Ghost Jam (talk) as the proposer.
  2. YoshiKong (talk) IT'S PIE DAY, PIE DAY, GOTTA GET DOWN ON PIE DAY.
  3. Yoshi876 (talk) I'd per YoshiKong but due to an intense hatred of that song I'll per the proposal.
  4. Super Mario Bros. (talk) — Ghost Jam has clearly come up with a workable system that will be extremely beneficial to the community. My only concern is where we will get the money to start the program, but I assume we can either borrow some from the MarioWiki's ad revenue or take out a loan. The Super Mario Wiki has always prided itself on being one of the premier Mario resources on the Internet, and implementing this project will solidify our status once and for all. The "Pie for Everyone" feature will increase editor productivity and community morale, (eventually) increase the Super Mario Wiki's revenue, and allow us to expand our appeal. I urge everybody that cares for the future success of the wiki to support this proposal.
  5. Lord Grammaticus (talk) Let them eat pie.
  6. Marshal Dan Troop (talk) I support because I feel this will bring Randomyoshi back.
  7. Tails777 (talk) Pie is a great idea, we shouldn't keep the users from their pie. Pie for everyone!
  8. Walkazo (talk) - I have regretted opposing the first pie proposal every day of my life. Never again. Pie for everyone, forever!
  9. Gamefreak75 (talk) - Pie is superior to all other desserts.

  13. bluetoad63 (talk) You convinced me SMB. BUT IT MUST BE CHOCOLATE PIE, OR I WONT HAVE ANY.
  14. Vommack (talk) Let them eat pie.
  15. SuperYoshiBros (talk) Pie will keep productivity up, and people can edit longer without having to worry about fainting from hunger. Plus it's pie. What more could you ask for?
  16. Blue CosmicToad (talk) I do have a particular craving for chocolate cream pie...
  17. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - The flaws of the original proposal have been vastly improved upon. This will definitely bring both a greater sense of democracy and also a greater sense of echantment with the MarioWiki administrative staff.
  18. bumpynintendo (talk) I. Think a pie dilevery service would be yummy and delicious!!!
  19. GBAToad (talk) Per all, pie for all.
No Pie for You
  1. Glowsquid (talk) - No delicious fruit pie = no per.
  2. Mario4Ever (talk) If the members of the administration are responsible for making and delivering the pies, then the flavors of pie to be offered should be determined via an administrative consensus and not via community input. The only way I can see that changing is if we accept minimum monetary donations of $20 for every pie flavor that is not currently offered.

Comments

Additionally, as this has proven to be something of a hot button issue, I'm further suggesting that, should this proposal fail, the overturn rule (point #7) be extended for this topic alone from four weeks to a full year. That will basically give everyone a year to discuss and then reconvene on April 1st. -- Ghost Jam (talk)

I think there should be a rota for which admin delivers the pies. Yoshi876 (talk)

Definitely workable. -- Ghost Jam (talk)

@Glowsquid The proposed list of flavors includes a few fruits. However, if you're suggesting we replace baked pies with those little packaged fruit pies.....that would certainly be cheaper and easier to deliver, but I'm not sure how the community would react to that. Anyone else have an opinion? -- Ghost Jam (talk)

It depends if you use real fruits or not. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 13:34, 1 April 2014 (EDT)
I'll support if you can hook everyone up with a free sample first. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 13:49, 1 April 2014 (EDT)
Free samples require $2 for shipping and handling. Mario4Ever (talk)
This is a scam! BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 14:11, 1 April 2014 (EDT)
The admin team does scam, we are 100% truthful the entire time. Yoshi876 (talk)
So wait, why is everyone trusting scammers to bake the pies? How do we know they won't poison them or something? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 14:53, 1 April 2014 (EDT)
Oops, looks my random miss out a word thing happened again :/. Besides why we would poison you? Yoshi876 (talk)
Hey, if you guys want to handle the production and distribution of pies, be our guests, though I should mention that transferring responsibility also incurs a monetary fee. It's less work for us. Mario4Ever (talk)
Is this proposal an April Fool's Joke? Today is April 1st and I don't find it likely to order pie from a wiki. In fact, pies in the face have been used a lot in comedy. SeanWheeler (talk) 17:35, 1 April 2014 (EDT)
It'd be passing a lot better if it was an April Fool's joke. Yoshi876 (talk)

To address opposing votes, I hereby suggest the Vommack Amendment to the Pie for Everyone Act:

  • Any flavor of pie may be ordered; however, pies not currently listed as an available pie will be considered a "custom pie" and extra money will be charged, depending on availability of supplies, etc.
  • The Administrator Bakery will be expanded to allow for the baking of cakes. All restrictions relating to ordering of pies extends to the ordering of cakes. Cake may or may not be a lie.

Pie For Everyone (revist redux)[edit]

Over the last year, since we last came together to discuss the often mentioned and regularly requested "pie button" feature, I've been submerging myself into the community to find what you, the users, actually want. More than that, I've been practically pestering my fellow admins on what they actually think of the my suggested pie creation and distribution system, why they felt it wouldn't work, the possible benefits and long term costs of such a system and how we can bring it all to the people.

Taking all the feedback into account and reviewing the results of the past proposals, here are what I have identified as the key concerns:

  1. Selection. Not of pie fillings, but of just pie itself. Some stated cake was better, other suggested they would support the idea if milk was offered.
  2. Difficulty. This seemed to be the chief concern among my fellow admins, that it would take a large number of resources to set up and that the slightest miss-step will bring the whole thing crashing down.
  3. Practicality. A few were concerned that pie, or indeed any food, would be a poor motivator or reward for hard working editors.
  4. Dumb/Silly/Stupid. I believe this speaks for itself.

I've crunched the numbers, looked over our resources and I think I've found a solution for all of these points that I hope will quill any further concerns. Now, before we get into this, let's be clear that this is an early draft of ideas for a work in progress. Positive feedback would be the most helpful in rearing the project to it's full potential.

Here is what has been carried over from the previous two proposals, with edits to match current ideas:

  • A single editor may only make use of the pie button once every 24 hours, due to constraints on the currently proposed delivery system (detailed below).
  • Each piece of pie will cost $3 American (or it's equivalent in your home countries currency). This is to cover basic delivery services. This price may need to be adjusted as the project fleshes itself out.
  • Third point to help make proposal look less like I just suddenly decided to do it at 3am, when in actually I've been thinking about this for a week, but I come up with my best ideas under time related pressure.

And to the concerns listed above:

1. I don't think it would be that much of an issue to expand out selection to cover other pastries, perhaps even instituting a "pay for custom" type system in case someone wants something we either don't offer by default or just never thought to add to the list. For this tentative list, it has been suggested that we offer:

  • Doughnut (suggested flavors: jelly (various), glazed, whole wheat & bovine laxative)
  • Cake (suggested flavors: angel food, chocolate, soylent green & Surge(TM))
  • Warm milk (suggested flavors: strawberry, chocolate, vegetable & soy)
  • Pie (suggested flavors: cherry, apple, Dippy's Home Made Sen-pie & Willem Dafoe).

This list is likely to change as the project matures and actual prices are worked out, but I feel this is a good start.

2. To the point of difficulty, I fully accept that the "pie haxoring" method was a bad idea, both for reasons of assuming wiki syntax is stable enough to do anything beyond confusing new editors and for the need to trust Wayoshi to do anything that would be classified as "not ticking off half the wiki staff" (paraphrasing). I have since Rube Goldberg'd a new creation and delivery system that I think makes full use of our resources while also not overtaxing our administrative team.

  • Step 1. Making the pies. I almost feel like I don't need to go into greater detail here, mostly because we are a close community of involved peoples and maybe a bit because I couldn't come up with an adequate way to segue into this one, but the pastries will of course be hand baked by our very own Crocodile Dippy. Perhaps this isn't known to some, but Dippy is a world renown baker and I am proposing we put her underused skills to work for the wiki. It should be noted that this isn't intended as a reassignment of her current position, but an addition to her current responsibilities on the wiki, with the authority to draft editors as needed Thunderdome-style.
  • Step 2. The delivery system. Again dipping into our talented staff pool, many of you know that our very own Walkazo is a Zoologist of some merit. Using her amazing science driven druid powers over nature, my current plan is to have her entrance a flock of carrier birds and a herd of large damn moles who will then deliver ordered pastries in a timely fashion. Distance won't be a problem as Walkazo is an all knowing druid-magician hybrid and can summon creatures to any spot on the planet with a flick of the crazy huge shotgun you see her hauling around in every picture.
  • Step 3. The currency exchange, payment processing, all the little financial things. For that, we have Paypal. Yeah, that's it, Paypal, no joke here, move on.

3 & 4. For both the naysayers and generally negative people in the community, I say the following: I hear you. I hear your complaints, your detraction's and your concerns. Perhaps we don't see eye to eye, but I am here for you. I've been here for you for years and I know how to help you fully understand the untapped potential pie presents for us. Out in NIWA square (so that our brother and sister wiki's can make use of it as well), I am having a small, four foot high by four foot wide pole installed. This part is rather complicated and full of jargon, but a sign will be installed next to said pole so that those who are otherwise concerned with how "dumb" this idea is can present their opinion via an open forum method I'm calling the "sit and spin".


My friends, my family, let me be clear. This is no vanity project. I really feel that the power presented by a full stomach will allow us to reach higher than ever before, to become one of the most powerful wiki's on the internet and to truly reward those among us honestly deserve it. I ask you to think of your fellow editors when voting. I ask you to think of what you want out of the wiki when voting. I ask you to think....of pie.

Pie For Everyone
  1. Yoshi876 (talk) I'm currently hungry so this seems like a great idea!
  2. Lakituthequick (talk) This is a great idea and I'm surprised this hasn't happened yet. Per proposal.
  3. Binarystep (talk) Name one other wiki that has pie for everyone.
  4. Stooben Rooben (talk) I never get pie anymore.
  5. Tails777 (talk) I could go for a nice plate of 3.14 and... oh wait, wrong pie. Eh, who cares. I support both pie and pi.
  6. SuperYoshiBros (talk) If this fails for the third(?) time I will lose all faith in humanity. It's PIE, PEOPLE!!!!!!!
  7. Walkazo (talk) - My flocks of giant (and/or adorable) pie-carrying birds are at your disposal (and so is my shotgun).
  8. Mario (talk) It will help me in my bird watching, and I'll get some sweets in the deal. It's hard to pass up a genuine treat like this!
  9. YellowYoshi398 (talk) Equal distribution of wealth.
  10. Crocodile Dippy (talk) From the depths of my Bake Cave, my minions and I work hard to ensure our pies are of the highest quality and standard for any Mario recolour's consumption. All to make Ghost Jam-senpai notice me~
  11. Boo4761 (talk) Lol wy not.
  12. Superchao (talk) Considering the grievous lack of pie in the past, this is the best possible way to make sure our members have the energy they need to keep editing.
  13. Tantusar (talk) I feel like this can only go well.
  14. Vommack (talk) Think about the possibilities here. With the ability to quickly and cheaply summon pie, we will no longer have to leave our computers for such minor interruptions as "preparing food" or "going to school" or even "getting a real job". With this massive increase in editing time, production will also see a huge increase. With this surge, the quality of our wiki would increase so much that we would take over the wikiverse! This proposal will lead us to WIKIVERSE DOMINATION! Anyone who truly loves MarioWiki will support this proposal!
  15. ExPower (talk) After careful research I have determined that the cake is in fact not a lie and tastes delicious.
Pie For No One
  1. Super-Yoshi (talk) pie killed me and my family i cant let it kill ppl again
  2. Baby Luigi (talk) If you're not going to offer a sprinkles option for the doughnut feature then expect an angry mob from me. You wouldn't want that, would you?
  3. Kart Player 2011 (talk) I don't like pie.
    #Mario (talk) Love the cake, but you gotta have it so Peach delivers it to me personally. I'm the reason this wiki exists, SO CATER TO ME YOU PIECE OF JAM. Also, since you have no choice to choose which species of bird to deliver me the cake (love me some Aphelocoma californica cake studded with whole peanuts), I have to oppose even if I'm not so important.
    #Chocolate Mario (talk) Per Kart Player 2011. Also, it's a joke proposal.
    #Mario (talk) No it's not.
  4. Chocolate Mario (talk) Since you (and me now) voted twice, it clearly is.
  5. Icemario (talk) I don't eat pie, I don't like cake, I don't drink milk and me liking doughnuts is not enough reason for me to support this. Include pancakes or otherwise the good sir in the comments is completely right; this proposal is a joke.
  6. Stonehill (talk) Sorry, but I don't think the system will work. Let's face it − even though Ghost Jam is trying to make a workable system, but how are you going to get a valid address? What if someone accidentally hit the "Pie" button? What if someone jokefully hits the pie button over and over, in fact, so much the admins get terrifically annoyed? No matter how "perfect" you make it, this system won't work.
  7. Magikrazy (talk) No ice cream option equals no go, gho jo.
  8. BabyLuigi64 (talk) Add ice cream, or else you will pie! (Also, I'm afraid of people abusing the option for throwing instead of eating.)
  9. Time Turner (talk) There are far, far, far too many problems with this proposal. It would take such a long time to list them all, but they should be plain to see.
    #Megadardery (talk) I'm not very active here, so no one should have pies D:.
  10. Megadardery (talk) Also voting twice, because everyone agrees with me.
  11. driftmaster130 (talk)} This could end world hunger, but pie is a sugar-loaded fat bomb that will forever endanger the survival of this wiki. If it was pasta I would most definitely support.
  12. Burningdragon25 (talk) I will say no pie and that is a per all!
  13. Andymii (talk) You know what could happen? The pie could spoil, and that could make users sick. They could then sue MarioWiki, and all information about Mario will be lost forever. As Mario will then be forever unknown, Nintendo will lose all of their market share and go bankrupt. This could lead to higher esteem in Sony and Microsoft. They could then collaborate and become a superpower, called Sonisoft. Sonisoft could then run a monopoly on everything fun, resulting in a desolate, apocalyptical world, which could become filled with radiation and nuclear energy. The earth could explode, and then send the particles flying into space, creating a ridiculous space vacuum and within a instant, delete all of the universe, leaving nothing behind expect for the aliens who slept through the whole thing- no more, and by a sleep to say we end the Heartache and the thousand-natural shocks the heart is heir to- all due to this pie. So for the love of mankind, I say NO.

@Super-Yoshi: It is my understanding that pie is vindictive and doesn't like being voted against. Just saying.
@Baby Luigi: A sprinkles option could easily be worked in. :D
@Kart Player 2011: While pie is the focus of the proposal, it's not the only thing we'll be offering. Check point number one of concerns.

As an add-on to this proposal, I suggest we round up all the non-patriots who oppose this proposal, and therefore the growth of the wiki, and ban/execute them. --Vommack (talk) 12:12, 6 April 2015 (EDT)

But look what cakes and doughnuts did to Wario! Granted, he deserves such a fate, but we don't! The success of this proposal will only lead to creating fat monstrosities like that! Therefore, the un-success of this proposal will be very, very sad but will save the citizens of MarioWiki from becoming as ugly as Wario. Also, there is still no ice cream, so I guess everyone must pie, except that I still have no clue what that means.

Not necessarily, all we need to do is exercise to get rid of the calories and such, if people can't do that then it'll be entirely their fault if they end up looking like Wario. Yoshi876 (talk)
I hear Fawful has a treadmill that will burn calories almost instantly. If you don't believe me, just ask Bowser. Tails777 (talk)

このファンメイドウィキペディアのすべての白を青に変え、編集者が夜間にマフィンを焼くことを許可する。[edit]

もしもしもし!13人目のお気に入り編集者(でもないか...)が、つい最近思いついた素晴らしいウィキペディアのアイデアをお届けします!

数時間前、このウィキを検索していたところ、という名前のページを見つけ、私は衝撃を受けました。虹の色のページがあったんです!2006年に作られたページなのに、妙に文章が上手い?感動が伝わってくるのに、きちんとした文章で書かれている。いいなあと思いました!そして、記事を読んでしばらくして、この名前からとても重要なことに気づかされました!

このウィキペディアには、青色が少ないのです!これは、それほど大きな問題ではないように思われるかもしれませんが、実は、青色は私たちの編集生活に必要なポジティブな要素をもたらしてくれるのです。パトリシア・バルデスとアルバート・メヘラビアンが行ったある研究によると、ピンクほどではないにせよ、青色は他の色と組み合わせることで人を安らかな気持ちにさせることができるそうです。例えば、2002年の研究では、「うれしいこと」と「悲しいこと」を3つずつ書いてもらうと、虹のどの色よりも青が多く表示される傾向があることがわかりました。

そこで、この1年間、編集者の幸福度を高めるために、このWikiの「白」(あるいは、ごく薄いグレー)を水色に置き換えてはどうだろうか!そうすることで、編集者は安心し、イライラしたときにも心を落ち着かせることができます。当初は「赤」を水色に置き換えることを提案するつもりでしたが、このウィキでは「赤」よりも「青」の方がよく使われていることが判明しました!そんなのおかしいでしょ!そこで私は、「灰色」という色のすべてのインスタンスを、より明るい色合いの青に置き換えることを提案することにしました。グレーはエディターにとって少し刺激的な色なので、これは他の選択肢よりも実際に良いかもしれません。どちらの選択肢が良いかは、あなた次第です。

16進数の#01C4F7は、他の色とのコントラストがよく、かつ「白」に近い色なので、この色にするのがベストです。フォントについては、#034722という、軽すぎず、太すぎず、いい感じの等幅フォントを採用しました。

また、このアイデアは私だけのものではないことを付け加えておきます。Wikipediaのその色のページの作成者が、このWikiに青という色の新しいページを作りたいと言っていました。もしこれに参加したいのであれば、このメッセージにあなたの「青」のページへのリンクを貼るだけで、このページを編集していくことができますし、自分で新しいページを作ってこのページをリンクすることもできます。

また、この変更案と並行してもうひとつ、編集者がマフィンを焼くことができるようにしたいと思います!この提案に反対する前に、どうか私の話を聞いてください。この変更を行えば、編集者が一日中マフィンを焼くことができるようになり、そうすることで、編集者のマフィンを「寄付」として、私たちのコミュニティをより良くするための努力に使うことができるようになるのです。現在、この取り組みに参加していない方は、ぜひ試してみてください!こちらから無料のアカウントを取得し、「寄付」リンクからマフィンを贈ることができます!まだ登録されていない方は、ご登録の上、マフィンをプレゼントしてください!マフィン1個以上の寄付は、マフィンの頭数よりマフィンの数が多くなってしまいますので、ご遠慮ください。(理解しにくい、言いにくい方のために、「頭」という言葉を「マフィン」という意味で使ってもかまいません)

マフィンの色については、別の色合いの青を提案したいと思います。ただ、どれがいいのかわからないんです。明るい色にしたいのですが、他の色合いの青はくすみすぎているような気もします。0A5B9Eはどうでしょう?01C4F7ほどではありませんが、良い色合いですし、カラーパレットもかなり多様化してきていますし、これ以上のものはないでしょう。

この提案は、特にあなたが青色系のブルーであれば、多くの人にとって少し奇妙に聞こえたかもしれないことは理解しています!しかし、それがうまくいくことをもっと証明したいのなら、このWikiのページ以外にはないでしょう!ここには素晴らしい記事がいくつもあります!でも、今日はちょっと明るいムードでいきましょうか?このアイデアが承認されたら、夜な夜なマフィンを焼くようにしないとね!では、今日もストレスのない幸せな一日にしましょう!チェリオ!

(P.S. 聞いたことありますか??????は私たちのために、新しい知識を学びました!?????が新しい知識を教えてくれました!「カサンドラとの楽しい事実」はもうすぐ実現します!)

Miscellaneous[edit]

BJAODN[edit]

Well, I was looking at the BJAODN page and I got to thinking, what if we included the BJAODN page in the BJAODN page (with all of the content put on)? All of the content on the page is nonsense, anyway, and would qualify to be on the BJAODN page.

Move the page "Moogle" to "Moofle"[edit]

Just come on guys. For far too long this grave inaccuracy has been pressed upon us. If I may gain the support of this community, I propose we move the page "Moogle" to the more accurate "Moofle". This will clearly not just be a boost to our website's accuracy and traffic ratings, with this measure in place we stand to have a whopping 25% increase in revenue and and the decreased overhead and operating costs will likely be so good as to increase our profit margin as much as 40%! It seems unbelievable but it is true. We could make thousands more than we currently do, and all for such a simple page. MarioWiki, I implore you. Save our Moofle! Save our money!

Pie for Everyone[edit]

By request of the creator, the infamous proposal is linked to rather than archived.

(It should be noted that a "Pie Button" did manage to exist, although only very briefly.)

Almost seven years after the original attempt to bring pie to the wiki, the proposal was revisited, and passed by an even greater margin. Sadly, despite the victory, there was still no pie forthcoming from the administrative bakery.

One year after the second proposal, the matter was revisited again, but there was still no pie, mainly because the proposal didn't pass by a large enough margin to satisfy the administrators.

Another attempt was made three years later. It received overwhelming support with absolutely no opposition, but alas, no pie was given out.

Remove Circuit City ads[edit]

I propose that we remove the Circuit City ads and replace them with Best Buy ads, because my uncle is the manager of a Best Buy location, and it kind of offends me that there are Curcuit City ads (this ISthe nephew of a Best Buy manager you're talking to).-Kpshadowsig.pngKP ShadowKpshadowsig.png

(This proposal was later removed by Paper Jorge (talk) with the following statement: "Proposals like that are a NO. Talk to Porplemontage about them.")

Snufit Ball[edit]

A few times ago, some user created an article about the Snufit Ball, a projectile thrown by the Snufit enemy in Super Mario 64, it was deleted on the ground that it was "too minor", however I think it should be recreated.

If we have an article on Cheese, we must also allow an article on Snufit Ball. Cheese affect gameplay by boosting the chances of seeing a rare enemy in Luigi's Mansion, Snufit Ball hurt Mario. They both affect Gameplay, they both exist in the Marioverse, they both must have an article.

Can we somehow get that Snifit Ball in the same article? Stumpers! 00:42, 18 January 2008 (EST)

Actuaally, the Snifit Ball came before the Snufit Ball, so it would make sense to have Snufit Ball in the Snifit Ball article, but whatever. ALL HAIL SNUFIT BALL ALL HAIL SNUFIT BALL. --Blitzwing 06:50, 18 January 2008 (EST)
Now wait. Projecticles are still different from objects that can be activated, so the comparison with the Cheese article is quite unfitting. I vote for "Only when it gets over two lines of text". - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:36, 18 January 2008 (EST)
Do Snifit Balls even have official names?Knife (talk) 16:08, 18 January 2008 (EST)
No, but then again, Cheese wasn't named in it's Luigi Mansion appearance except in those unofficial player guide with dubious info. --Blitzwing 16:39, 18 January 2008 (EST)

Is this a serious proposal or a jab at the people who opposed deleting Cheese? >_> NMRodo

Both. --Blitzwing 17:07, 18 January 2008 (EST)
The cheese article has a good length. Something that only consists of:

A Snufit Ball is a small black orb that Snufits spit out of their tubular mouths at Mario in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. They can easily be avoided, but will hurt Mario by one damage point if he touches them.

does not qualify for an article. Not "affecting gameplay" is the ticket to an article, but rather whether the article can actually provide content. And as of now, you don't seem to get past the above version of it. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 17:11, 18 January 2008 (EST)

(Blitzwing later withdrew the proposal when Cobold modificated "the awesome vote headers".)

(Also note that after this proposal was archived here, someone voted for it again. "Oh no" indeed)

Someone help![edit]

I need help with my comic project: comics N Gang and Club Nintendo.
