Support[edit]

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) The article was unfeatured because 1. the article contained empty sections 2. too long trivia section 3. awful plot summary 4. inadequate items and 5. just overall badly written. All of those problems are gone; the empty sections are filled, the trivia section is incorporated, the plot summary is rewritten and overhauled, the items link to their respective articles for a complete list (badges and clothing wasn't there, now it's there with a link to the list), and I've done some slight tweaks to the writing in the battle section so it's written better. I think it's totally fine to feature this article again. If it's missing anything major, please let me know.

Comments[edit]

An I the only one that this can still do better? Like maybe have the team of fours stats that they have at the beginning of the game? It doesn't tell you that Luigi has better HP and Defence than Mario, for example. Am I just being picky? - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 17:29, 3 July 2014 (EDT)

You can add it if you like, but it won't be the difference between a featured article and a normal article. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:33, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
Those character specific stats are supposed to be mentioned in the character respective articles but you can add it if you like. It's just a minor detail though. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 17:36, 3 July 2014 (EDT)

Is anyone willing to adjust the tables so the names go under the image, so we save a column for the table? Finally, shouldn't the enemy table list the possible items dropped by the enemies? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:33, 3 July 2014 (EDT)

Possibly. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 17:36, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
Then I also think the Locations and Bros. Moves could be better. Like a map of the area (from the touch screen) below it or something and the bros moves could list where they're bought, the damage they do, and just overall improving. Still not going to make me oppose, but I think there's too many minor things to be done to improve this article. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 17:40, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
I personally don't like Image Maps. I find them gaudy, less practical than text (especially if you haven't played the game and don't know the areas), and to me, it's basically a pretentious way to show that we can make fancy image maps of locations in the game. The items and where they are bought...well, the article already has a link to a list of shops in the game, so I think it's unnecessary. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 17:44, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
I can't say I like image maps either, but that section feels a little bare. It could at least describe the area a little bit. The Bros. moves don't tell you about how they're performed or give an image. Yes, it has links, but this article should still give some info on the subject. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 17:50, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
So you'd like a wiki table describing the area? I can make one of those if you like. Also, I'd love to expand on the Bros moves a bit too...with a wikitable too...right? BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 17:56, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
Sure. If it makes it better. That's what I want to see. If those are there, I'll defiantly find it feature material. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 19:00, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
I'll be working on those then. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 19:00, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
I'll help if you need me. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 19:11, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
I can construct this. This isn't anything I can't handle. ;) If you think it needs any additional tweaks, feel free to implement them. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 19:12, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
Have done Bros Items. I'm a bit pooped out now so I think I'll take a break. Next up: expanding locations BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 20:15, 3 July 2014 (EDT)

Yeeaaah I don't think expanding locations is gonna happen. Thanks Garry's Mod. >_________> BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 15:57, 26 July 2014 (EDT)
