  1. Mario (talk) I understand how this article is featured. Despite this, this article's greatest glaring flaw is its presentation. The plot section is too long, too excessively detailed, so I added a rewrite template very recently (just before this nomination). The controls section is a complete mess, inaccessible and most likely confusing for the reader. The section also has irrelevant information, like the last paragraph where it talks about unlocking Luigi. In the Galaxies section, the way the table is organized is pretentious and confusing; instead of efficiently providing information, it makes it hard to read. The table in the items section is sloppy, and its accompanying "location" section is not only pointless, but silly, trite, and hard to read. Minor problems include the cheap incorporation of the staff page to fill an empty section. If this is the best Mario Wiki has to offer, then this wiki doesn't know how to present its information cleanly.
  2. Ashley and Red (talk)To be honest, yesterday I took a look at this article and was think.of unfeature it, but you have many.more reasons yhan.me, @Mario. I also should state that it is a mess: Tables that are hard to understand, and the start is tooooooooooooooooooooo much long!! Per Mario, anyway.
  3. Yoshi876 (talk) Per LGM.
  4. Ninelevendo (talk) What Yoshi876 said. The language used is ridiculous, I mean Rosalina and a group of Lumas appear on the Gateway Galaxy's main planet. Rosalina says "I will watch over you from beyond the stars." and flies off to the Comet Observatory. is just flowery writing.
  5. Marshal Dan Troop (talk) Per all.

@Ashley and Red I don't see any problem with the start section, five lines looks fine to me. Yoshi876 (talk)

Super Mario Bros. 2, for example, has a longer start section, and it's featured. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 01:59, 25 May 2014 (EDT)
I looked through this and I think that it's fine. Yoshilover76 (talk) 21:58, 27 May 2014 (EDT)

Ninelevendo: Another example, with absolute scientific accuracy (even for Mario standards) as a bonus: "The two share a carefree moment in the skies, but their reunion is cut short when the Sun of Bowser's near-complete galaxy undergoes a supernova and becomes a supermassive Black Hole which is large enough to pull in the universe."
