Mario Sports Mix[edit]


Support[edit]

  1. Mario Fan 123 (talk) I'm no fanboy or something, but this article is pretty good. It has quite a lot of details and images, absolutely no red links (at the moment), and it's pretty colorful. It's a pleasure for the eyes. Indeed, I never played Mario Sports Mix (just for the people who called me a 'fanboy' on my last SMG2 proposal) and I quite like this article. I support featuring it.

Oppose[edit]

  1. Fawfulfury65 (talk) Per my comments and BabyLuigiOnFire.
  2. MeritC (talk) This has potential for being featured, but for now, I sadly have to oppose per reasons above. Let's see if we all can follow through on BLOF's suggestions before another "featured article" attempt takes place in the future.
  3. Smileymiley5001 (talk)I bought the game yesterday,and there is a lot of stuff in it that I cant find in the article or articles relating to the subject.
  4. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - Per MeritC and Fawfulfury.
  5. Pokémon Trainer Mario (talk) Per all.
  6. HenryClaylogan (talk) Per all.
  7. Fuzzipede27 (talk) Per all.
  8. Baby Mario Bloops (talk) This article looks WAY better and all, but let everyone else, it is still a young article, and could use much more touch-ups throughout the page.
  9. Bowser jrs number 1 fan (talk) Needs more stuff done so basically Per all
  10. IGGY7735 (talk) Per all. Looks Better.
  11. LeftyGreenMario (talk) The article is good, but it still needs some sprucing up. The information it gives out gets very redundant and repetitive at some points (like controls and how it keeps saying "this character then makes a shot"). These two issues bother me very much; it makes the article very boring to read. I just edited the controls section (which was a sea of text). I hope this won't get reverted because I'm a visual learner myself, and I think seeing all these words instead of simple icons would be more difficult to read, understand, and maintain interest.
  12. Goomba's Shoe15 (talk) Per All
  13. Conanshinichi (talk) Per All

Removal of Opposes[edit]

Fawfulfury65 as well as MeritC, Smileymiley5001, MrConcreteDonkey, Pokémon Trainer Mario, HenryClaylogan, Fuzzipede27, Baby Mario Bloops, Bowser jrs number 1 fan, LeftyGreenMario, Goomba's Shoe15, and IGGY7735.
  1. SWFlash (talk) The article is already overly long, there's barely anything to add.
  2. DKPetey99 (talk) Whoever is referring to BLOF, she changed her vote so you can't "Per BabyLuigiOnFire" if she is supporting now.

Comments[edit]

@Mario Fan 123: You don't have to make a proposal to feature an article, just put it in your vote. Anyways, this article is OK, but it needs a better introduction and I spotted a few grammar errors around it. I'll fix the ones I can find. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

I'm with Fawfulfury, since I really do like the design of this page (especially the character section) but it still needs some touch-ups. Baby Mario Bloops (talk)
Agreed; hence our discussion on our respective user talk pages. If anything, the "Playable Characters" section would benefit the most since we would place all information in relation to them on one chart, which also would include their statistics. MeritC (talk)
Per the comments above. The intro is very poor and it needs more information and more additions.--DKPetey99 (talk)
You still can edit it, can't you? "Little less conversation and little more acting", please. ;) --Mario Fan 123 (talk)
Okaaayyy, but we're just listing these problems the article has so that others are aware of them and will try to improve the article, so not just me does all the work (though it would be nice, ok, I'm a bit selfish, whatever, lalala, go ahead). BabyLuigiOnFire (talk)

Okay, just to give a heads up, the character table is constructed, unlockables are ensured in the article, sports rewritten, and it's nearly complete. The only thing now is needed is what happens at the beginning of the tournament, where the four crystals fall from the sky and several Toads investigate it. I feel that part is very vital. Same thing where your character puts the crystals in the Star Ship. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk)

I would support this, but I have to agree with BLOF. I say we wait till the article is done, then feature it. Tails777 (talk)

Well, I and some others have worked really hard on this article, and I think it is done. Any more recommendations for information? I'll add it if it is necessary. Otherwise, I consider it viable for featuring! I need to remove my oppose vote soon as everybody knows what has been done to this article. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk)

I think it looks a lot better now. I will change my vote and support. New Super Mario (talk)

Isn't MushroomMadness' vote invalid since he's blocked. MrConcreteDonkey (talk)

I love how the article looks and all, but I won't change my vote till something very minor is done. Can you please equal out the images between sports, especially in the Record Book area, but I love Dodgeball the best, but I don't want to see Dodgeball pictures everywhere. Baby Mario Bloops (talk)

Guys, I removed my oppose vote, so I think you should take action before we start suggesting to remove oppose votes that used to "per" me. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk)

The article looks good now. I am ready to support. Tails777 (talk)

I voted earlier and the article looks good! OK! Reddragon19k 16:53, 28 March 2011 (EDT)

Now since BLOF reverted my edits it's now has {{rewrite-you}}. I've changed my vote. SWFlash (talk)

Hey, but if you keep on writing, "the players should" all the time, it looks very repetitive and boring. I wish there was a shorter way to write the methods for unlocking. LeftyGreenMario (talk)
I've rewritted that part, seems to be good now. SWFlash (talk)
Do lines like "Play 40 matches" refer to the the reader directly? It does not contain the word you or anything. It's just "Play 40 matches". I think it's not a real problem if the text says "The player should" or simply "Play". Other featured articles like Mario Kart Wii also use lines like "Win 100cc Leaf Cup or play 1,050 races" and nobody made a problem of that. Arend (talk)
Play X is actually does, because it motivates the reader to do the task, much like all other "you should do X" things. About MKWii: someone should rewrite it. SWFlash (talk)
I also wonder how it got featured with those yous. I've fixed the how to unlock section, I didn't find any other you section yet. SWFlash (talk)

So, it has been 3270 days already, how many more days should we wait to feature the article? SWFlash (talk)

When it meets all the requirements i guess Iggykoopa (talk)

The nomination of this article would need to stop and remain within the failed nominations. If the article is still under improvement then use notice tags on it until the aproppiate moment to renominate comes. Coincollector (talk)
I think this nomination should be archived it's been 4 months... i think Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
