Should we start adding these kind of sections into articles? Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Definitely. Alternatively, somethings can just be linked back to Wikipedia. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 04:13, 14 September 2007 (EDT)


It's ok in events that we have more than on FA put onto FA status at the same time, instead of choosing one and shunning the other for a week, that we use the choose extension so all get the limelight? Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif 02:52, 15 September 2007 (EDT)

They are all FAs. One is just spotlighted every week. Just beacause K. Rool is on the main page does not mean Goomba and Yoshi are not FAs. They are listed on the FA page and in the FA category. They are all FAs. -- Son of Suns

Do we need this? There isn't much news normally to warrant a whole section, the sitenotice usually does fine. Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif 05:10, 15 September 2007 (EDT)

FA Banner

The FA banner has been up since FA has been around and i made a new banner. here it is, now before i upload this, i want your opinion if this should go or the old shall stay:


Yes, I added Waluigi ......

Smash Bros. Article separations

i have noticed the Smash Bros. Info in articles such as Mario, Yoshi, and Wario are very crammed in there along with their trophy info. I was wondering if we could mabey do separate pages for SSB Mario character info. Like call for example this article title: "Wario (SSB)" , which would be strictly Super Smash Bros. related to Wario. -- WarioLoaf (talk) 22:00, 20 September 2007 (EDT)

And, you got this idea from SmashWiki, didn't you? My Bloody Valentine
No it just looks out of place in the articles. -- WarioLoaf (talk) 22:22, 20 September 2007 (EDT)
This would just create more stub articles, or articles that would eventually be argued into remerging. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 23:26, 20 September 2007 (EDT)
I agree with Ghost Jam. My Bloody Valentine

The information does not have to be smashed (forgive me) together. We have sections for stats and in-game information in these articles - trophy info can be moved to this stats section, instead of being in the Super Smash Bros. section. That is perfectly acceptable. -- Son of Suns

Super Smash Bros Brawl Forum

Does anybody know what section should I go to SSBB forums in the MarioWiki Forums?F gLarrynana.gif

Don't flame me but it'd be the console gaming section. Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Thanks for responding because I had trouble searching for it. F gLarrynana.gif

No #darkmyst?

I've just been informed from Darkmyst op komies that all users with a host mask of !WikiGuest@ (thus all users using MarioWiki:Chat here) are blocked from #darkmyst, because we as a group caused too much trouble (*coughPlumber+Saudycough*). Whether Snack (talk) knew this or not, I dunno, but he had to be server killed today for going in there, as the guys in #darkmyst hate our guts now (great........), and now he has been brought down with Uniju for two weeks (if he tries to evade, it's longer...).

I've never heard of this development, maybe I missed something. If it's new to you, then just don't go to #darkmyst, no one talks there anyway. If it's old...keep avoiding it, I guess...feels great to be hated, eh? Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 18:22, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

Well, this is just ducky. So we can't use our chat? 3dhammer.gif 3D, BAD BAD PLUMBER *spank* 3dhammer.gif
Well, you can't go to #darkmyst on chat. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 16:13, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
OK. So this means that we can use the normal chat server? 3dhammer.gif 3D, Pit of 100 Trials = EVIL. 3dhammer.gif
Yup. By the way, Wayoshi started the hatred, not me! Saudy and I made them hate us more, though. Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif 14:37, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

MPA Icons

Attention: Just to let everyone know, I have recently uploaded images of the Mario Party Advance Map icons. If anyone would like to use them to help out the articles for the Shroom City page before I do, please do. Thank you. Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif

Will you be using these by tomorrow? Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 20:18, 27 September 2007 (EDT)

Well, I might, but I may have to do some important college work. I was hoping that you guys might take advantage of these images too. After all, the articles for the Shroom City Page is quite due for a fixer-upper. Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif

MPA Progress

Well, that's 16 articles made/renewed. Are you guys sure you don't want to help me out on this? Because I'm going to take a nice break now.

Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif 18:08, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

Ah; I used to work on the Mario Party Advance articles... Until I was too busy, maybe I could take the job for now... RAP.pngRAP... RAPstar's taking it, I bet it's the taker of taking it!

Rating Images

I was thinking of a more effective way to list the ratings of a game on the game articles, and I was thinking. Should we use the official Rating Images used on so many boxarts? You know, such as the green box with "G" in it, and the yellow box with "PG" in it. My Bloody Valentine

Don't we already do that? We use the official "E", "T" and "M" ratings. We can add more official ratings for other regions though. -- Son of Suns
The MA rating? Wasn't it KA? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 09:36, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
Whoops! I meant just "M" (and have changed it). Although no Mario game has a "M"ature rating, it is another rating example. -- Son of Suns
We've already decided to use ESRB, PEGI and CERO ratings in the infoboxes. Would that mean we'd need images for all of them? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 09:43, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
We don't need to use the images - just the words and letters so we can save space and list multiple ratings. -- Son of Suns
As I recall, we used the rating images in the first place because we thought it would look cool to have them in the info boxes. And, honestly, it did. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:03, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Improvement Drive

Should we put the MarioWiki: Improvement Drive on the main sidebar navigation? -- Son of Suns

That would mean it would be a much easier access. Twink approves. ^_^

Talk archive

Could I make a template for my talk archives?toadbert

Use a sub-page of your user page and include it like signatures. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 18:40, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
Ok,thx Wayo. (Toadbert101|TBPaper.PNG|Give a yell|Sez:I phailz) 18:44, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Table Trouble

I have a little problem. The Gaming Acheivements section in my homepage has been getting a little long, and I have been wanting to make a table out of them. One part being games I copleted, one part finished games, and the third being for other acheivments. I looked at how it's done on the help section, and saw the table in the Shroom City article as an example, but it just looks too complicated for me. Do you have any advice?

HEAD ASPLOSION! Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC


Should Undead be used on pages instead of UnDead, {{Boos}} and Ghosts? Or do you think we should keep the separate templates? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:34, 14 October 2007 (EDT)

Anyone? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:16, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
Yes. Deleting UnDead, {{Boos}} and Ghosts as you read. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 02:21, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
Actually, I think I might have been too hasty with {{Boos}}. We normally keep species basted templates, even when we have collection templates. I'ma restore that one for now. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 02:31, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

No more Stub Deletions?

After the outcome of our latest proposal we will no longer delete stubs, so will we stop deleting stubs period or will we only delete one-liners and obvious info filled articles? Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

This is the kind of stuff that should have been brought up in said proposal. >_> -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 23:38, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

Video Bust

Are you guys going to get rid of those videos then?

Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif 08:22, 24 October 2007 (EDT)

Prolly, especially if they aren't helpful to the article or are of low quality. If someone wants to watch videos, they can easily type the article's name into YouTube or GoogleVideo or whatever. -- Son of Suns

I see you guys have still kept the videos. Perhaps you don't have time to get rid of them right now... Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif 20:17, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

Would you be so kind as to help us remove them, in that case? My Bloody Valentine
I don't see why we're worried right now. Personally, I can't always find those videos anyway. They'll come down over time with everyone editing, right? Stumpers! 20:55, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

All right, fine! }( Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif

There! Thy're gone. Happy, DP?

Benio Pose2.JPGMr.BenioYoshi-1.gif

...Oh well. It was fun while it lasted. Now everyone who looks here will have to leave the Wiki to wade through the web in the hopes of finding videos again. *tear* (we can't even link them?) Stumpers! 11:13, 4 November 2007 (EST)

The videos actually helped me in finding more images for the Doopliss article... - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:08, 4 November 2007 (EST)


Check this article out: [1] Apparently Nintendo will be releasing a special Game Card for the DS that will allow for downloadable content, such as GameBoy games, previously unplayable on the system. Normally, I would pass this source as unworthy or misinformed, but freatured the same article on their site (they focused on the Animal Crossing bit), so I think we can trust it. Yeah, it doesn't really have any significance to Mario yet, but I thought you all should know. Stumpers! 23:47, 24 October 2007 (EDT)

Sounds interesting. Good job on getting this news here. However, like you said, we should wait for Mario content to make it on that game card first. ;) My Bloody Valentine
This is awesome news. The GameBoy is number two on my list of favorite systems. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 01:30, 25 October 2007 (EDT)

SSBB talk page

The Super Smash Bros. Brawl talk page Should be archived. Full Metal MoogleKirbyWalk.gif

That's something that should be talked about on the said Talk Page. My Bloody Valentine

This image needs to be used somewhere...

mariocharactersizesqe7.jpg Okay, I just found this image on GameFAQs, and I think it should be used. User:Klaus Kratchet

This isn't a very canon image. Bullet Bills, for example, are quite smaller than that in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Also, which article would you put it in? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 17:55, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
This image was published before SSBB, which really has questionable canon itself! ;) Besides, Bullet Bills have varied in size forever, and I do believe that having them be about half of Mario's size is acurate, particularly in Super Mario Bros. and Mario Party. Plus, has anyone seen these artworks before? I think it may be official. Stumpers! 22:03, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
