Support[edit]

  1. DKPetey99 (talk) This article is in pretty good shape! It has a lot of images for each section, the tense has been fixed, most sections have a massive amount of information, the Mario Party, Mario Golf, and the Mario Tennis sections have each game Boos appear in and expansion. I've also added a few new sections, Yoshi, Mario Hoops 3-on-3, the Mario Golf section, and added each game to the Mario Party section. Take a good look at the page, what is it missing?
  2. Sinanco (talk) Yes, this article is pretty cool! it deserves to be the fetured article!

Oppose[edit]

  1. Reversinator (talk) Per all, including my comment.
  2. Mario4Ever (talk) Per Reversinator's comment.
  3. Yoshiwaker (talk) Per all.
  4. Fawfulfury65 (talk) The Mario Party sections seem to be missing some valuable information, such as what Boos do when you meet them on a board. I'd like to fix these sections, but I'm busy on something else.
  5. Catboy41 (talk) Same as all reasons above.
  6. Reddragon19k (talk) Per all!
  7. LeftyGreenMario (talk) Now, the sections are expanded. However, the Mario Party section is bothering me a bit. I think it should be organized by game, and each game should list the appearance of Boo, if it is in the background, a stage hazard, etc. The Mario Tennis article needs better flow. Also, I think it can use more information too. Finally, some notable Boos appeared in the Super Mario-Kun, but there is no section on that.
  8. Goomba's Shoe15 (talk) per those above

Removal of Opposes[edit]

LeftyGreenMario[edit]
  1. DKPetey99 (talk) Okay, Mario Party section is merged and added to, so it looks complete to me, even seems complete if you read it. Second tense is fixed, I fixed it all. Third Mario Power Tennis section has as much information it can get, I added to that one, too. Lastly, I added images, fixed tense, added information, and reading thoroughly! It seems really good to me!

Comments[edit]

@DKPetey Who are you to decide who does or does not deserve to be on and use the wiki? Mario4Ever (talk)

He didn't say that, he did. Yoshiwaker (talk)

DKPetey, the Mario Tennis section gives a paragraph on Power Tennis, but a sentence on Mario Tennis, plus it's not in order. Mario Party series has an inconsistent amount of info between the MP games, Super Mario Sunshine is written in a biased way, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario World television series, and Mario Baseball series have low quality images, and Super Mario 64 DS, Super Mario Adventures, Mario Kart series, Hotel Mario, Yoshi's Universal Gravitation, Mario Party series, Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Super Princess Peach, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl are all missing images. Also, not a single comic is on this page. I'm pretty sure there were more than a few comics that Boos appeared in. Fix those problems, then I'll support. --Reversinator 18:40, 13 May 2011 (EDT)

For what it's worth, I tweaked the Mario Tennis section (see Leftygreenmario's opposal) to try and make it flow better (although I might have made it worse, and DKPetey99 already removed the opposal) and edited the Super Mario Sunshine section to try and un-bias it (see Reversinator's comment). Again, I may have made it worse. Please don't kill me. User:Brianne the Frank

If you made a mistake, we're not going to kill you. Making mistakes is a learning process. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk)
And don't edit other users' comments. I saw you fixing Reversinator's "sentance" typo. Mario jc (talk)
@Reversinator, Firstly the Mario Tennis section is in order and its small due to little information. Mario Party section, again has enough information. We don't want to literally take the information from the actual game page and then copy it! It'll repeat itself and not be good enough. Super Mario Sunshine is fixed, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. has a fine picture. Super Mario World television series and Mario Baseball series have good pictures now. Super Mario 64 DS has no room to fit next to the Super Mario 64 picture, Super Mario Adventures has no available picture, Mario Kart series now has artwork, Hotel Mario has no available picture as well as Yoshi's Universal Gravitation. Mario Party series has 2 pictures so I see no problem. Again, we don't need every image for each section. Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Super Princess Peach, and Super Smash Bros. have pictures. Comics? Really? Have you ever read a comic with a Boo in it? I'm not even sure one exists. I am going to vote to remove the votes again, so you better answer fast! DKPetey99 (talk)
Like I said, Mario Tennis has one paragraph for one game and a sentence for the other, so making it equal would be nice. It's even worse with MP series, since there's a huge chunck of information for Mario Party 4, and barely a sentance for each of the other games. I'm not asking to repeat information, I'm just asking to balance the info between games. Super Mario Sunshine is fixed, I'll give you that. Those three sections' images are not good quality, and if a section is missing an image, you need to actually find an image. And there's a difference between "no available image" and "I don't have the game so I can't get an image". You put in an image of the Mad Boo for Super Princess Peach, not the regular Boo, and I would of prefered an image of the Boos on the Luigi's Mansion stage for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, since the trophy image already appears in the article. And one last thing; here's your proof that Boos appeared in at least one comic. Care to argue some more? Reversinator (talk)
Yes I do! Show me a picture of a real Boo from Super Princess Peach, and a picture of Boo from the Luigi's Mansion stage! Huh? I searched for an hour trying to find those images on google, even tried cropping pictures from Youtube! I mean, you can still help fix the article, I can't do it alone you know! DKPetey99 (talk)

It's still missing content on Yoshis Safari Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

DKPetey99: Just look at the covers in the Super Mario-Kun manga. Some have Boos in them, like Lady Bow and Boo Mario. LeftyGreenMario (talk)

Let's see... there's still an inconsistent amount of info in the Mario Tennis series, Super Mario Sunshine, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World television series, and Mario Baseball series have low-quality images, Super Mario Adventures, Super Mario-Kun, Hotel Mario, Yoshi's Universal Gravitation, Mario Party 5, Mario Party 6, Mario Party 8, Mario Party DS, and Mario Pinball Land are missing images (plus Super Smash Bros. Brawl needs a different image since the trophy one's already there), Super Mario-Kun only talks about the covers, and Mario Party Advance, Mario Strikers Charged Football, and Yoshi's Safari are missing. Petey, Featured Articles are supposed to represent the best of the wiki. If it has flaws like the ones I pointed out, it can not be a featured article. Reversinator (talk)

For the many you said are missing images, please remember they is a gallery so we don't want every single picture from every single game for every single section. DKPetey99 (talk)
Yes but we do want the info to be right considering how the article says that Mario Party 3 marked the debut of Boos in the Mario Party Series yet Boos are listed in the template for Mario Party and considering how the Boo bell appears in Mario Party 2 so either the Boo bell and Boos have nothing to do with each other or the article right now is wrong also theres still no info on it's appearance in Yoshi's Safari Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
"Featured Article Standards: An article must include a reasonable number of images of good quality if said images are available." The images for the Mario Party games are on the gallery, so they go on the article since they're available. And if you ask around, you'll surely find people who could get the images you need. Reversinator (talk)

Just a question, Petey; how come you seem determinated to feature Boo, yet you're not doing the same for Mario (franchise)? Reversinator (talk)

I don't really know. Mario (series) I'm paying attention to less because there doesn't seem like a lot to add and it seems like I have a better chance of getting this article instead of Mario (series). It would be nice, though, to have other people make an effort to edit this page instead of me just focusing on it. DKPetey99 (talk)

This artivcle is missing info on the Nintendo Adventure Books and i can confirm they appear in at least 3 Flown the Koopa, Dinosaur Dilemma, and Koopa Capers Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
