Poll Selection

So, since the polls are back, shouldn't we use the Poll Selection page again? FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey

No, because there is a committee of users in charge of selecting polls now. · SMB (Talk) · 22:24, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Image Glich

On the Unused files page, there are two images at the top: one of a green Yoshi and one of a purple Yoshi. They are unnecessary, so I want to delete them. But for some reason, I can't edit it. I can only "create" it. Anybody know why? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Well, I've "restored" the images. So they should technically exist now. --Steve (talk) Get Firefox 02:11, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Foreign names in the opening paragraph

There's an inconsistency in the opening paragraphs of the articles I noticed: In not so many, but still in a notable number of articles, the Japanese name is mentioned in the lead. Actually, I'm perfectly with that, as the Japanese name is the original one in most cases and therefore deserves this treatment. What about adding the name used for the original (not generally Japanese) version to the articles? Like how it is done at Bulbapedia, e.g. "Midbus (Japanese: メタボス Metaboss)". On the other hand, Krow would actually not need his Japanese name in the lead, as he was created by Rare. Episodes of the Donkey Kong Country animated series would have the French name in the lead, as French is the show's original language. Any thoughts? At least there should be consistency on this. --Grandy02 21:51, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't really like this style. It doesn't leave any room to explain the etymology. - 2257(Talk) 22:06, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
The English name's meaning is also often explained in the Trivia section rather than the lead. Or what do you mean? --Grandy02 10:13, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
The English name is explained in the Trivia section because there isn't a template for explaining it. We have a template to put names in languages other than English in and explain their meaning though, so I don't really see why we wouldn't use it. Even if the Japanese name is the original one, it's still a name in another language on an English-language Wiki, so I feel it makes sense to have it in the section for Names in Other Languages (which is how most articles currently handle it); given the section's heading, most people would probably look there first when looking for names in other languages, and it feels more organised that way to me.--vellidragon 14:52, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I didn't mean that the original name should be removed from the template, sorry if my statements implied that. I thought it could work the same way as at Bulbapedia. Template:BP, for example - the original Japanese name is mentioned in the lead and then there's also Template:BP for all names with explanations (unlike this wiki, Bulbapedia also lists the English name in the template). I think the original name should be mentioned in the lead, since it is, well, the original one, and therefore deserves more attention than the other foreign names. --Grandy02 15:30, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Featured Images?

Sure, the polls are back, but the featured images are gone! Can't we just put everthing we need to on the main page? There's no size limit I don't think.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Beecanoe (talk).

There was a proposal to remove the FIs, It was the same one that suggested to get back the polls and the majority supported it. Also, please sign your comments.--Mr bones 16:09, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

FIs and Polls

I don't know if this a possibility, but if some people want both the poll and the Featured Images, then why can't we just make room for both off them. I don't know if it works like that but if you van add more room, i don't see why not. --New Super Mario120px-NSMkart.png

No, this has been discussed enough. The people voted for the polls, and wanted the FIs gone, we listened to them. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 19:52, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm new ere so what are FIs? - J-Yoshi64 (talk)

Featured images. It's an old system that was taken down because the process wasn't that great. We replaced it with polls. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 00:34, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Concerning Japanese and Chinese Characters

How come in some computers, I actually see the actual characters, while other computers, I see boxes with numbers on them? Is there some sort of extension missing in my certain computer? Please specify. I'm curious.

BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Probably: my old computer can't display the characters either, and while it usually blames the Internet browser for being incompatible, all the programs have this shortcoming. In one of the manuals I read (the one for Photoshop, I think), it said that that foreign alphabets have to be separately uploaded. However, I doubt your computer works the same way my antique does (it's a Mac OS from the '90s), so your best bet would be to look it up online. Sorry I can't be more specific or helpful... - Walkazo 22:17, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
It's ok. At least I received a helpful reply. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Galaxies need more images

Hello, I am Mariobros8. I am a Wikia wiki editor (Smashbro8 on Wikia). I've noticed that certain galaxy pages need more images such as the Dusty Dune Galaxy, Spin Dig Galaxy, Puzzle Plank Galaxy, Boulder Bowl Galaxy, Throwback Galaxy, Cloudy Court Galaxy, Haunty Halls Galaxy, Starshine Beach Galaxy, Boss Blitz Galaxy, etc. I was wondering if you guys can add more pictures to the pages. Please contact me when you have the pictures. --Mariobros8 23:19, 21 September 2010 (UTC)Mariobros8

You know, you can add the images yourself if you want too. Fawfulfury65

Can't make Page!!

I'm trying to make a page by searching a name that I know doesn't exist but there is no 'Create this Page' link. Instead there's a blue link that takes me to World 1 (Super Mario Bros.). How do I fix this problem? SKmaric (talk)

It's blue because the article already exists. Fawfulfury65
Okay, let's just say I'm trying to make a page called something like World 1-1 (Super Mario Bros.), but I can't make it. Instead I get redirected automatically to World 1 (Super Mario Bros.).SKmaric (talk)
What if I create a page with a random name, then use the {{DISPLAYTITLE}} template? SKmaric (talk)
To answer your first question. A redirect page has been created to lead you into the article you just typed. That way, if you type that in a search engine, you would go to this page instead of "Page cannot be found". If you were lead to a page via redirect, click on the topmost link, where it says, "redirect from *insert Toon Link here*".
For your second question, display title will only display the title on your page/tab/whatever. It's just a mere display. Typing in the link won't take you to that article, but instead, show up as a red link.

BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

How about I just edit the redirect page so it's an actual article, as well as a link to the page it originally redirected to.

SKmaric (talk)

Wait, are you trying to make World 1-1 a seperate page? If so, that is completely pointless and ultimately n00bish stupidity. o_0 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 16:26, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

BTW, your sig is very big, make it fit here:

--TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 19:37, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

When you try to create a page for World 1 - 1, you are redirected to the Word 1 article because the 1 - 1 level is merged in that article. The redirect is there for a reason, don't edit it. Fawfulfury65

My point exactly, FawfulFury. 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 11:03, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Boss Category Placement

I'm new to this wiki so I don't know if this has already been discussed, but I noticed something that I think should be changed. I'm going to give the example of Bouldergeist. Bouldergeist, I noticed, is in all three categories; Bosses, Enemies, and Characters. I personally think the wiki would be better if bosses like Bouldergeist stayed only in the Bosses category. Also, enemies would only include more "everyday", minor enemies, and Characters would pretty much only contain playable characters and other protagonists, etc. This would reduce the amount of links in each category, and things would not be repeated.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarioFan25 (talk).

Actually, one of the things we want in categories, is to "categorize" them in as many categories as they fall in. I agree, things should not be repeated, but he is a Boss, an enemy and a character. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 20:03, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

True, but couldn't you argue that with pretty much any boss? --MarioFan25 22:45, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Yup. They're are enemies, aren't they? And they are a character, aren't they also? You can say the same thing with Mario and his friends. Anything that is not an object is a character. Anything that blocks the protagonist from reaching his/her goal is an enemy.

BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

That's not how "enemy" is defined in Category:Enemies, though. The description text of the category makes it rather clear that it's for "regular enemies" and that opponents only fought as bosses should be in Category:Bosses, so, keeping that description in mind, there's no reason for a boss that doesn't also appear as a regular enemy to be both in Bosses and Enemies.--vellidragon 19:44, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
I (again) agree with Vellidragon. An enemy is defined (IMO and in the category's opinion) as a species of creature fought by Mario & co. more than once (Note: Rematches with a boss do not count). A Boss is defined as a character which appears once, most probably has text, most probably changes the music but, over all, appears only once per game and, if he appears again, it is obvious that it is the exact same guy. Finally a character is defined as someone with a proper name given to them, not just a generic member of a species. So I agree with Vellidragon and on another level, MarioFan25, we should seperate the articles into which categories they actually fall under. Marioguy1 (talk)
I also agree with the above categorization. If we're going to do this though, we're going to need quite the overhaul since they're all like that at this point in time. Not saying it can't be done, but it'll take some effort. Phoenix Rider (talk) 20:14, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
  • volunteers*! Work, shmork, I'll do it so long as I have permission. Marioguy1 (talk)

Ya know, the Smorg from Paper Mario: TTYD would just be a boss, seeing as it's just a giant, creepy cluster of individual smorgs which aren't really characters, more like a species of enemies. I say someone/something sentient/semi-sentient should be able to be categorized as "characters" - J-Yoshi64 (talk)

Many characters are sentient (I assume by sentient you mean they communicate on an interactive level with another being) however we have no article on Koopa Troopa XYZ from Koopa Village because it is not notable enough. We include it in the generic article Koopa Troopa. However the article contains sentient and non-sentient Koopa Troopas in it so I don't think that is an accurate classification. Marioguy1 (talk)
Sentient technically means "self-aware; able to make subjective judgments". HammerbrosPMSS.png JF (contribs) Hammerbroemblem.png 13:14, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Creating a Page

I can't create a page without it going to an error saying "This page does not exist" on the Yahoo search engine. Like if I searched a page that doesn't exist on the wiki, it goes to the Yahoo search engine and says "This page does not exist". HOW DO I CREATE A PAGE!?

I'm sorry, but you have to use your imagination and your creativity (as long as it abides to the rules) to create a great userpage. That's why we can't help you on this. For your second question, I'm not too sure, but there is a certain way to do it. You can ask Tucayo, since his is like that. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Principessa in Another Castello

Hey I just got Assassins Creed Brotherhood and I was looking through the trophies (which you earn by doing stuff in the game like completeing a mission) and a trophy is called "Principessa in Another Castello" a obvious refrence to 'The Princess is in another castle' so should we maybe put this as trivia or something? --Dry Bob-omb 10:25, 2 January 2011 (EST)

Idea for new poll.

Here it is. The question is "Who do you want to see in Mario Kart 3DS?" and the awnsers would be Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario, Toad, Bowser, Daisy, Waluigi, another returning character, a new Kong, a new classic character, a new Nintendo character and a new crossover character.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by DK Fan (talk).

They are common characters, I suggest rare options to be like "Donkey Kong Jr.", "Toadette", "Shy Guy", etc. SWFlashSWFlash.svg
I think Peach is comfirmed to be in the game. Vinnie

Well, this is embarrassing

"All right" is spelled wrong on the current poll. The word "alright" doesn't even exist. Can someone fix it, if possible?

BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Alright is informal, as is the poll, really. --Steve (talk) Get Firefox 13:22, 28 January 2011 (EST)
"Alright" is an alternate form of the term "all right" that should be avoided in formal writing, but can be used in informal speech or written dialogue. The options given in said poll were written in a quote-like, informal way. Therefore, the term "alright" might arguably qualify as controversial, but it is not "wrong" as you claim. Also, claiming that this term is nonexistent is really far-fetched. - Gabumon from the Digimon franchise Gabumon(talk) 13:27, 28 January 2011 (EST)
I agree, it's not embarrassing at all. The word "alright" is a very valid word, I've seen it spelt like that all of the time.

"All right" isn't even that correct really, as it leans more towards saying that it is all correct. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 13:39, 28 January 2011 (EST)

You know that glitch with the invisible platform outside the Steeple? Well, I tried the glitch and proved it false. It's not an invisible platform, it's an invisible ? block. Therefore, it's not a glitch, and I deleted that, okay? :)

Okay, but don't explain edits here: just say what you're doing in the edit summary, or possibly in the page's talk page. This place is for more general wiki issues. - Walkazo 00:01, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

Template on top

This sounds stupid, but "alright" isn't an actual word. I suggest that we change it to "all right" to make our wiki look more professional. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 21:20, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

I think that we already had a discussion about how alright is a proper word...I don't really see the point. Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D


Hi, it is again, Mariobros8. Is there a way to take images from Youtube? You see, I was searching for images on some Donkey Kong Country Returns enemies and I can't find them. Then when I watch videos on Youtube, they have the enemies right there! So again, I was just asking if there is a possible way to get images from Youtube? By the way, if you look for videos that feature the DKCR enemies that aren't yet made on this wiki and watch them, you may be able to create their pages. Just put an image template on them though.--Mariobros8 19:47, 27 March 2011 (EDT)Mariobros8.

Use "PrtScn" button. Crop using Paint or an image editing program. Save. Uhh, tada? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
Also, if you have Microsoft OneNote, you can use the Insert Screen Clipping feature to clip out a portion of anything on the screen. You can then save the screen clipping as a picture.

The Shroom was not just released

On the homepage,i think it should only announce that the new issue of the shroom has been released for 3 days.its misleading.the announcement stays up until the next one comes out,why not just keep it up for a few days while its still new?

yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Well, it doesn't say it was just released. Red Yoshi TTYD.png Yoshiwaker An Orange Yoshi in Paper Mario: Color Splash. 14:10, 13 April 2011 (EDT)

The Wii HD?

i just heard some rumors about the new console, "Wii HD" it will officialy announced at E3 2011. ;)
The preceding unsigned comment was added by ItsameMario (talk).

We don't know if it will be announced at E3, but I heard the same thing. Isn't this more appropriate for the forums? Mario4Ever (talk) 21:51, 14 April 2011 (EDT)
The rumor says that Gameinformer and IGN leaked some information regarding Wii's successor. I know IGN sometimes gives such information but it's always from editors' thoughts. However, Gameinformer is quite weird for me giving that information too. The most interesting description they gave (but sure, speculative) is that it will have HD, a bit more powerful than XBOX360 and PS3 and won't be called exactly "Wii".

¢oincollctor rsitem209.pngPD: other rumors state that the possible new console is codenamed "butterfly".

What?! (this isn't aimed at you Coincollector, I'm just exasperated) Why in the world would Wii's successor be named "Butterfly?" Or does that have something to do with the whole Gamecube - "Dolphin" thing...?

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 01:10, 15 April 2011 (EDT)

Don't need to be in that mood, Phoenix. That's a codename, like Gamecube's Dolphin, the Wii's Revolution or the Nintendo DS' Iris (the latter is based upon the name of a flower). Once the console has been fully completed its development, the official name is announced. And as I said early: All that I said is mere, simple and obvious rumor from other sources

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Well, I apologize, but I was just trying to say that I wouldn't be comfortable playing something called "The Butterfly"... :)

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 16:51, 15 April 2011 (EDT)

I've read that CVG, EDGE plus Gameinformer and IGN leaked more info, but again it may be speculation despite the truth they can have these sources. First it would have a control with a touch screen and second the project is not Butterfly. It would be called Cafe.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png OK, I think I shouldn't tell more, better gonna fishin'...

Well, I couldn't very well say no to that...after all, I'm a sucker for a good touch screen! :D

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 23:07, 15 April 2011 (EDT)

UPDATE: Project Cafe is legitimate and will be revealed at E3 2011. Unless anything Mario-related gets mentioned anytime soon, this is the last I say on the subject. Mario4Ever (talk) 21:44, 25 April 2011 (EDT)

I think that untill we get further info, the article to the Wii's successor should not be created. It will be like the early day of the SM3DS article when it was known as [N]SMB3DS.--Holyromanemperortatan 22:52, 25 April 2011 (EDT)

@Itsamemario:Where did you get the info. We have to wait for e3 @Coincollector:Isn't DS' codename Nitro? --Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg 09:15, 22 May 2011 (EDT)

About the poll...

Of all the things that can be celebrated, why this site's 6th anniversary and not Mario & DK's 30th?


Vinnie I think it's because we only count Mario's anniversary as when SMB was released.
Still doesn't make the 1981 debut any less relevant. This also applies to Nintendo's gaming career altogether (G&W notwithstanding). BooDestroyer
Um hate to break it to ya but Nintendo started making Video games in 1977 at least that's when there first console came out also the Game&Watch is a very important console and that was first made in 1980.

Mario & DK...I have no idea what you're referring to, but I don't think it's a very notable occasion considering I had no idea it was happening; what day is it on? Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D
The original Donkey Kong arcade game was released in 1981. 2011 marks the 30th anniversary of its release (July), and as the first game featuring Mario (Jumpman) and Donkey Kong released by Nintendo, one can consider it to be the 30th anniversary of the characters as well, which is what BooDestroyer is referring to. I don't know if Nintendo has something planned for that month, though. Mario4Ever (talk)

It's...April...July is in three months...I don't think that we need to worry about celebrating the release of that game quite yet... Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D

I suppose BooDestroyer's getting a little ahead of things. Speaking of getting ahead of things, why not make plans to celebrate the 122nd anniversary of Nintendo's founding, which isn't until September? ;) @BooDestroyer The sixth anniversary of this site is much closer than the 30th anniversary of Donkey Kong. Mario4Ever (talk)
Notrly actually, but preparations for the anniversary have been going on for about a month now so it seems fitting to do something about the anniversary. Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D
I stand corrected. Okay, at the present time, the sixth anniversary of the site is of more importance to users than the 30th anniversary of Donkey Kong. Mario4Ever (talk)

Nintendo Movie

I looked at Charles Martinet's page on wikipedia and in filmography it says Super Smash Bros. The Movie. It was a red link but it had 2011 next to it. Is this really true?Fuzzy in New Super Mario Bros. UYoshiGo99Artwork of a Yoshi egg on a tilt. It is unknown whether this artwork was released with a certain game or not.

Oh god i hope not Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

@both: I can't find any information on a SSB movie, let alone Martinet's involvement. It most likely does not exist, and that information on the page is probably inaccurate. Mario4Ever (talk)

Vinnie Wikipedia is full of lies.

Idk, Wikipedia also claims that there is going to be a Super Smash Bros. 4 (which, if that is true, I would be ULTRA FLIPPING INSANELY STOKED about), but sadly, a page does not exist for that article either, so one is left to wonder...

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 00:35, 23 April 2011 (EDT)

Dude, they should make a new Mario movie with GDC-whatever-it's-called animation. You know, like Shrek, Despicable Me, Rio, etc. But a SB movie? That will flat-out stink.--Holyromanemperortatan 22:54, 25 April 2011 (EDT)

Nintendo hasn't confirmed this and Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Fawfulfury65

Wikipedia is just full of lies. Full of them. Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg 09:10, 22 May 2011 (EDT)

I have a wikipedia, and I know it isn't reliable. At school, I am not allowed to use it on projects and stuff. But this is a Mario Wikipedia, meaning it can also be unreliable as well due to vandals. NSMBW Bowser Jr Artwork.png Bowser Jr! Tom The Atum! Tom The Atum.png

Userbox Images

Why are they being deleted? Blue Pianta Bowser's lumaArtwork of a Koopa Paratroopa in  New Super Mario Bros. (later used in Mario Super Sluggers, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Run)

Probably because the majority of the userboxes were deleted a few months ago, so the Userbox image template no longer applies to the images that were being used in the now deleted userboxes...

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 20:39, 27 April 2011 (EDT)

I suppose that I could take the {{userbox}} template off images that are things like actual sprites ripped from actual games. For example, this: ZapMarioZap!.gif
SKmaric (talk)
What Phoenix said, it's maintenance we should've done a long time ago. And to SKMarioman, you can do that but they have to be linked to an article, they can't just be a"floater" iamge that doesn't have any tags or links to any articles. And back in the day we didn't really allow gifs in articles unless that was the only picture we had, things could've change, if someone could help out on this subject. Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC
@Xzelion: From what I understand, we now allow GIFs in articles but we never make them the main image of the article - we just stick the sprite (moving) onto the page to demonstrate how it looks. Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D
We don't put them in tables either. It's too distracting. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
