A very serious proposal[edit]

I know it's April Fools' Day, and you guys are having fun with proposals. That's all well and good, I'm glad you guys are having fun. But I have a legitimate proposal here, one that's been nagging me for a while now, and I feel like I need to get it out there before I forget it...

Pie button?

Proposer: Alex95 (talk)
Deadline: April 15, 2020 23:59 GMT

I like pie
  1. FanOfYoshi (talk) π 3.14
  2. Super Mario Bros. (talk) Per Alex. "Pie for Everyone" was an idea that was ahead of its time. Now that the wiki has embraced newer technologies, as evidenced by the implementation of micro-transactions to unlock key features of the website, it is time to truly unleash an era of innovation by installing the long-desired "Pie button" on the Main Page.
  3. Waluigi Time (talk) This proposal wins every year but never gets implemented, let's fix that.
  4. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) I'm hungry
  5. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) In the past, I have advocated for waffles. But I can no longer deny the perfection of pie.
  6. Niiue (talk) feed me, jon
I hate pie
  1. Duckfan77 (talk) Quack
Cake is better
  1. Ninja Squid (talk) Cake is the divine essence of the heavens. If MarioWiki is now F2P, we have the budget to upgrade those nasty pies to tasty cakes. #Team Cakes4All
  2. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) Where you say "pie," I say "die!"

#Duckfan77 (talk) Quack.

Never had pie, and thus I live a sad life of never having enjoyed it

New features[edit]

Expand our coverage to include every franchise in the Marioverse ever[edit]

For far too long there has been a terrible lapse in our coverage in our failure to accurately cover not just the Mario franchise, but the Marioverse (btw this term is official if you were wondering my uncle works at nintendo and he says miyamoto told him) as a whole. Therefore I propose we grant full coverage to any franchise that has had a crossover with Mario in accordance with the Mario canon and lore that has been firmly established and enforced by Nintendo since the dawn of time. This would include whatever that dirty-minded squirrel's franchise is called, the Child's Play series, and anything Sakurai decided to toss into a Smash game. As a bonus aside from being the most accurate website for the Mario canon on the internet this would also vastly increase our article content, which is good because big numbers are nice.

Since I'm not expecting anyone to oppose I have already started this by making a page for Sans


  • Q: Does this mean that <insert franchise> gets full coverage too?
  • A: YES
  • Q: Why did you make a Q&A with only one question?
  • A: I couldn't think of any other questions leave me alone

Proposer: Waluigi Time (talk)
Deadline: April 8, 2020, 23:59 GMT

  1. Waluigi Time (talk) this idea is great
  2. FanOfYoshi (talk) Oh, yeah, let's!
  3. Dedicated Mario Hater (talk) Yes! YES! That sounds like an EXCELLENT idea!
I hate change

As a supporter of the superarticle proposal below, I don't want more articles, but also don't hate change, leaving no viable option for me. Clearly this proposal is rigged to push a political agenda and the proposer should be deprived of pie.

oh no :( --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 16:26, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

List the additions and changes applied to the musics in Super Mario All Stars[edit]

I don't see why not

These are very important changes!
  1. FanOfYoshi (talk) Overworld musics, for example.
  2. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) Why have this be an April Fools' proposal? It's actually a good idea.
  3. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) Somebody once told me... oh wait, wrong All-Star music.
  4. Niiue (talk) this but unironically
No, they're very minor!


Bring back Snufit Ball[edit]

Deleted for no reason. The wiki needs it.

  1. FanOfYoshi (talk) It's important.
  2. Waluigi Time (talk) snufit ball
  3. Dedicated Mario Hater (talk) snufit ball
  4. Power Flotzo (talk) snufit ball

Merge every article into a single superarticle[edit]

23,590. That's how many articles we have on this wiki. What a travesty. Why should we force people to search or click links to find what they want? We make everything more convenient for our readers when we keep everything on a single page. Remember that wiki with two pages? No? Exactly. By putting everything on a single page we are providing many benefits to ourselves and our readers. And you know what makes it even better? Only owners of the Winged Strollin' Stu item will be able to read it! Imagine all that income! Imagine all that money! We could make a fortune!

Goodbye plurality, and hello singularity!

Proposer: Well, only YoshiFlutterJump (talk) could come up with such a smart and beneficial idea!
Deadline: When the proposal passes!

Merging for life!
  1. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) Per my great and glorious smart idea above.
  2. Waluigi Time (talk) having 23,590 superarticles is the best idea since waluigi
  3. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) Having only one article is the next best thing to deleting every single article on the wiki a great idea!
  4. Niiue (talk) I for one am tired of my browser being able to load the wiki in under an hour
I accept that my account will be permabanned if I put a vote here
  1. FanOfYoshi (talk)
Comments, which shouldn't be necessary, of course!

i'm conflicted because this sounds like a good idea but i like big numbers. can we replace every article with a copy of the superarticle instead --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 11:48, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

Oh, yes! Database overflows! Server crashes! A fantastic idea! We should do that! -YFJ (talk · edits) 11:52, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

Will this only affect mainspace articles, or literally every namespace (gallery, talk, file, user, The 'Shroom, etc.)? Because if it is not the latter, I am sorry to say that you are aiming too low. LinkTheLefty (talk) 20:37, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

A thought I never considered! I approve. Let's make this superarticle even more super! -YFJ (talk · edits) 20:47, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

Rename Jump Guarder to Sentry Garage[edit]

I don't see why. The name is cool, and certain users from this wiki use it.

Do it!
  1. FanOfYoshi (talk) Yeah!
  2. JoeRunner (talk) Certain users from this wiki do use that.
No! That's a Super Mario Encyclopedia name! No exeptions!
Trash talk

Sentry Garage deification
A Sentry Garage's model from Super Mario Galaxy
The entity in question.

I'll keep this short. I'm sure we all remember Super Mario Galaxy, a game in the Mario franchise, and released for the Wii video game console in the year 2007. This game, lauded with near-perfect reviews and Game of the Year awards from multiple outlets and reviewers, was, simply put, a classic. But what is the reason why this game was such a favorite among fans and critics alike? I had an extremely rare opportunity to speak with Yoshiaki Koizumi, the director of the game, on the topic. Here is what he said on the matter, translated by a Japanese-speaking associate of mine:

JoeRunner: Why do you think Super Mario Galaxy was such a successful game?

Koizumi: Well, during the development period of the game, we came across an interesting situation: while we were crafting a galaxy that did not make it to the final game, there was a bug in our coding, and a ledge, which was originally meant to be scalable with simply a triple jump and spin, ended up becoming just a bit too tall. We tried to fix this bug, but it proved almost impossible. So, instead, we created the Sentry Garage character, a way for Mario to get higher than he usually would be able to vertically travel. But the humble Sentry Garage, which started out as simply a way to bypass a bug, gradually wormed its way into the hearts of the game's staff. One of the game's head programmers even proposed, "It's not too late to make this game's main character the Sentry Garage. Heck, we could even change all the old Mario games into Sentry Garage games. Nobody would contest it; it would certainly be better than that idiot Mario anyway." Even Miyamoto-san himself did not disagree with this statement. I firmly believe that the Sentry Garage is one of the greatest factors in Super Mario Galaxy's success.

This passage shows that even Koizumi himself loved the Sentry Garage (also known as the Jump Guarder, although less goodly), and if this isn't a reason to love a character, then Grambi knows what is. So here is what I'm proposing: we give the Sentry Garage what it's due. We do anything and everything we can to give it the love it deserves. Since the MarioWiki is already visited by many people, promoting the Sentry Garage would be a great move in helping it get the recognition it deserves. We make it our mascot, our logo, our pride and joy. Please vote under the "Support" header down below for this noble cause (unfortunately, it is required that there be an "Oppose" option as well, although I am sure none of you will vote for this).

Thank you for reading.

Create article for Sailor Moonigi[edit]

Wario and Luigi getting their Sailor Moon cosplay game on, from an issue of KC Mario.

Who are these two? Well, clearly, the one on the left doesn't matter, but the one on the right, Sailor Moonigi (aka secret identity Lusagi) is clearly just as much worth an article as Mr. L and Mr. E and Mr. E and Mr. I and Mr. J and Mr. TMedia:CrunchBandicoot.jpg. All glory to the totally-separate-characters-and-not-alter-egos-of-Green-Mario! Also, it like, totally relates to Mario and stuff because DiC made three Mario shows and localized the original Sailor Moon albeit terribly

Proposer: Doc von Schmeltwick (talk)
Deadline: April 8, 2020, 23:59 GMT

  1. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) That's MAMA Luigi to you!
  2. JoeRunner (talk) As this has been revealed for Mario Kart Tour via the recent datamine, showing that they are once again being represented by Nintendo, I'd say "heck, why stop at Moonigi? Add Marioon into the mix as well!"
  3. FanOfYoshi (talk) ペール・ドック・ヴォン・シュメルトウィックとジョー・ランナー。
  4. Dedicated Mario Hater (talk) it's a separate character
  5. Niiue (talk) i can't believe we missed such an obvious gap in our coverage for so long
  1. Waluigi Time (talk) opposing for the sole reason that this proposal would only make an article for sailor moonigi and not the vastly superior character sailor woonario (not to be confused with inferior character sailor moonario) wars therefore this proposal is trash and you should feel ashamed for even coming up with it you overcooked pancake with organic maple syrup

@Waluigi Time But Wario's dressed as Sailor Mars! Your argument is invalid. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 10:33, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

that's what i said the whole time please reread my vote and make sure you're reading it right this time --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 10:35, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

Split the Mario Kart Tour alts[edit]

Why are all the Mario Kart Tour alts like Mario (Musician) and Peach (Kimono) merged into Mario and Peach!? That's stupid! They're separate characters! The MKTweets even call them by their seprate names, prooving their diffrint! We must spliiiit!

Proposer: Dedicated Mario Hater (talk)
Deadline: soon

Support (the only right option)
  1. Dedicated Mario Hater (talk) yes
  2. Waluigi Time (talk) btw my uncle who works at nintendo told me that miyamoto told him that they are actually different versions of the characters from alternate dimensions in the marioverse, so if you oppose this proposal you're defying miyamoto himself
  3. FanOfYoshi (talk) Per all. This is a good idea!
  4. Niiue (talk) per waluigi time
  5. BMfan08 (talk) We should be prepared in case Nintendo puts these fellas in more games (because of course they would).
Oppose (anyone who picks this is stupid)

What's funny is that I've been thinking to make a legitimate proposal about this, outside April Fools. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 14:23, April 1, 2020 (EDT)

Good thinking. The Mario Kart Tour Cult appreciates your thoughts. Dedicated Mario Hater (talk) 15:20, April 1, 2020 (EDT)
