  1. Booderdash (talk) A very good article with all its sections good and long. The images had been improved, and it just matches every single critieria on the Featured Article page.

Removal of Opposes


I think its fixed up alot now.Booderdash (talk)

Baby Mario Bloops, I really don't think we need that more images. Which sections do you suggest more images? Also I have no idea how to fix the Paper Mario templates. Any help? Booderdash (talk)

There are too many short sections (ie: Mario Kart 64, Mario Party 7, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, etc). KS3 (talk)

For Superstar Saga, its because Chain Chomps didn't actually appear in that game. And CAN Mario Kart 64 be any longer? I don't have that game. I'll try Mario Party 7. Booderdash (talk)

No, they play a very minor role in MK64. Everything they do is already written there. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

Lacks any form of references. Looking at the requirements for being a featured article on this Wiki: "…be sourced with all available sources and Mario-related appearances." Clearly, the lack of references tells us that this article cannot be featured quality by the standards put in place and should be failed if this is not fixed. - NARCE 03:21, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Narce nearly all the information are Ingame. This isn't wikipedia where even they don't have to have ingame information sourced. Only the game articles have references. As you can see the Mario article itself only has 3 references. If we go by your standards, nearly all of the FAs don't belong on the list. Booderdash (talk)
But not all, sir. The trivia section does not explain where this information comes from, and the personality section is likely written based on a writer's observations. - NARCE 04:36, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Only the first one in the trivia section. The other two CAN be found ingame. Look at Paper Mario the game and it IS hyphenated. Buy a japanese mario game, and it IS called Wanwan. Plus the personality thing is in nearly every article. Should Genos article be unfeatured? Baby Peach? KS3, Mk64 can not be expanded any more. I expanded Yoshi's Story, Paper Mario, Mario and sonic at they winter olympic games and MP7. Strange since I have none of those games.Booderdash (talk)

A source has been added for the trivia. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

Could you please fix the source? It cites Wikipedia; it should cite the citation used by Wikipedia for this information. - NARCE 02:49, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Wikipedia has it sourced t some weird book log thing. I have no idea what to do with that, I'm sorry. Booderdash (talk)

The Chain Chomps make many cameo appearances in The Legend of Zelda games. Link's Awakening features a domesticated Chomp while The Four Swords Adventures and A Link to the Past has Chain Chomp-like enemies that Link must avoid. These may be the same Chain Chomps meaning they exist outside the Mushroom World.
Wow, it already exists outside the Mushroom World (How about Super Mario Galaxy 2? Chain Chomps were at the other side of the universe). KS3 (talk)

Well, Super Mario Galaxy 2 is still in the MARIO universe, while Link's is in a different universe from Mario's. However, I'll still change that. Again, I don't have these games. Booderdash (talk)

Ks3, the strikers have been expanded and can't be expanded anymore. And I don't think the winter olympics can either.Booderdash (talk)
