Welcome to Main Page talk. This is where technical issues go. For all general questions, please visit the FAQ.

Just a quick question

How come when i searched for : the main page came up?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Isyou (talk).

Odd. It links to "", which goes to the Main Page. It's like a Home redirect. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:42, 6 March 2007 (EST)


Could someone add the link to the side box with the Wiki Forum, etc.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

We're not affiliated with the RareWiki, so no. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:38, 1 March 2007 (EST)
Remember we're separate entities. The transferring of articles is the only thing related. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 20:04, 1 March 2007 (EST)

I understand. I just thought that since you created it and part of it will be about the trietary focus of this Wiki and all.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Well Banjo & Conker are gone – I removed tertiary focus from MarioWiki:Importance Policy. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 20:13, 1 March 2007 (EST)
When will the articles be deleted? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:38, 2 March 2007 (EST)

Hello? The "Remove the Tertiary Focus from the Importance Policy Picture" was my idea. you guys seemed to forget about the whole page! Max2 (talk) Like the sig, Steve?

I was creating Help:Article. The articles need to be deleted by sysops as soon as all images are transferred. If I'm on tonight, maybe I'll undertake the dirty work. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 15:02, 2 March 2007 (EST)

I would have thought that once a page was moved, it would be marked for deletion, which would have made this matter moot. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 18:51, 2 March 2007 (EST)

I'm going through Special:Allpages at RareWiki tonight and plucking them out one-by-one. Yes they should have, but something happened... Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 21:59, 2 March 2007 (EST)

I just wasted spent 75 minutes getting rid of all RareWiki articles and images, as well as a few templates. :D Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 00:47, 3 March 2007 (EST)

Why was Conker deleted? I cut down Banjo and his' articles just to have their Diddy Kong Racing Appearance in their article. So why was he deleted? Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, OK, it's fixed now.Tadaaa!.gif

It would seem that Conker is still there or has been restored. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:25, 5 March 2007 (EST)

I noticed Conker was deleted for reasons unknown and rewrote his article from scratch, instead of restoring it. -- Sir Grodus


Sorry for the mix up with gallery tags. My home computer has a smaller monitor than the one I am currently using. I can see the I was mistaken about three pics per gallery tag and am in the process of fixing my mistakes. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, don't worry about it. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 20:15, 6 March 2007 (EST)

I think I got them all. If I missed on, let me know, or feel free to roll it back yourself. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 20:15, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

RareWiki Isyou

There's an imposter on the RareWiki using Isyou's name. The real Isyou is Super isyou on RareWiki. Someone please help me find out who the fake Isyou is.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Is this faker causing trouble? If not, I don't see why we need to worry about this. We aren't even affilitated with RareWiki.-- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 20:23, 6 March 2007 (EST)

I'll help. are there any Sysops or any Administrator there? Max2 (talk)and 2nd, is Fake Isyou a troll?

So far, he/she has only had 1 contribution, but Wayoshi seems sort of mad at me for not telling him, so I figured that it must be pretty important.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

I'm on it! Max2 (talk) Ace Detective! (seriously, I'm a pretty good detective.) Wish Me Luck!

I'm just going to note this: The only contribution that the RareWiki Isyou made was done before that Wiki was created. --KPH2293 20:31, 6 March 2007 (EST)

How's that even possible?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

huh? Max2 (talk) 8( I can't search that! OK, we need a Sysop on RareWiki! $25 for helpin' 8) not really.

It was done before? how is that possible? Isyou 20:38, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Wait... How'd YOU know that? 80 Max2 (talk)

You can look at the dates the edits were made on wikis in history i think... Isyou 20:40, 6 March 2007 (EST)

He's right. He also left fake Isyou a message on his talk page. And Yoshi626 said it a few lines above.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

I don't get it either. -- Sir Grodus

Max2 (talk) OK, suspects:

  1. Yoshi626
  2. Aipom
  3. Anybody here.
(After two edit conflicts, I can finally post this) Look through here. That edit was made about a week before the RareWiki was created. It's a result of the page being imported from here. Isyou must've been the last person to edit that page before it was imported to the RareWiki. --KPH2293 20:45, 6 March 2007 (EST)

That make some sense, but who come in didn't do that with the other articles. And 3 edit conflicts for me :(--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

New Suspects: Max2 (talk)

  1. Aipom
  2. Real Isyou
  3. not a suspect, but if you forgot, I'm the Detective. Thank you!

Why me!?! I'm the one who alerted this.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

oh, sorry. I meant... wait. did you say "Isyou must've been the last person to edit that page before it was imported to the RareWiki."? Max2 (talk) Just a bit of something, check the I.P address on that isyou on the rare wiki. Its not the same I.P that i o on everyday (although today im on a different computer) but its still different. Isyou 20:52, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Could a sysop just look through the deleted page history of Conker: Live & Reloaded? If there's an edit by Isyou on 15:56, February 17, 2007, then they are the same person. --KPH2293 20:52, 6 March 2007 (EST)
12:56, 17 February 2007 - Isyou -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:39, 6 March 2007 (EST)
Oh yeah, I forgot, it's only 15:56 for the east coast. Which means it's 12:56 for the west coast. So they are the same person. --KPH2293 22:52, 6 March 2007 (EST)

I have to go. but before I do... It's someone on this Wiki' Max2 (talk)

Wow, this spiraled pretty far out of control in a little over ten minutes.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

First of all stop talking about another website. If you want, discuss this at RareWiki, not here. I'm not trying to be mean but you should be talking about MarioWiki on MarioWiki and talk about RareWiki on RareWiki.

Second to resolve all this and get it off the Main Page talk, it may have been a glitch. Or there is a possibility that someone has created an Isyou account somewhere on Wikia, but that still doesn't explain how that Isyou edited on MarioWiki. Regardless, the only way for Isyou to get his name on RareWiki is to use the glitched account's password. Maybe you'll have to contact Wayoshi for that, he's the only sysop on RareWiki for now.Knife (talk) 21:06, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Question. If someone makes an account on Wikia, then does that person automatically have an account on all wiki running through Wikia? -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:05, 6 March 2007 (EST)
Yes. --KPH2293 22:16, 6 March 2007 (EST)
I'm using the name Ghost Jam here. Does that mean I can't create the name on Wikia, or is it already there and I technically already have an account on every wiki in the system? -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:39, 6 March 2007 (EST)
Since this Wiki isn't apart of Wikia, you would still need to create an account there. And once you created it on any Wikia, you'd have an account for every Wikia. --KPH2293 00:23, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Alright guys, enough. It took me a couple of seconds to figure this out after seeing the "fake" edit diff, but it's ok – you didn't realize that imported edits from the Super Mario Wiki show up on RareWiki's articles' history. This is why the edit is from before the RareWiki was created. Son of Suns hasn't joined the RareWiki yet, but look – tons of edits from his work here. If Mr. Isyou here had joined under the same name, he would have had 1 contribution to start.

Now, enough of this detective "you did it" "No I didn't!" stuff. Case solved: no imposter, just a past edit from here showing up. No big deal at all blown out of proportion by Isyou, Aipom, and Maxlover unintentionally (no problem guys – I'm just relieved we don't have a troll yet.) Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 22:49, 6 March 2007 (EST)

What a relief.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Image Categorization

I've noticed that in some categories on Wikipedia, all related images are listed under the same category. Would that be something we should do here? For those who don't understand, Super Mushroom is an item. The image of a super mushroom would have the category tag for Items placed on it. That way, the image shows up on the category page for items. I'm going to do that one right now as an example. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 05:29, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Take a look at Category:Mushrooms. It would seem that it doesn't work the same way here as it does on Wikipedia. Over there, the category page has a seprate section for images. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 05:32, 8 March 2007 (EST)
Yeah, images are placed separately after all articles have been listed. And as for my opinion, I don't think we need this – licenses are enough – we have been working hard, especially RAP, to license images – no need to go back to add them to "normal" categories. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 17:50, 8 March 2007 (EST)
K. Removing tags. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:02, 8 March 2007 (EST)
IMO, it is hard to find images you are after because people don't categorize much. Sure, that works for the article you are working on, but if someone else comes alone, wouldn't they upload a new image? I would... Categorizing might help, even if it was just a keyword listing on the image pages themselves... or some other way that the image searches would be more meaningful. But yeah, you're right... there's so much work x_x That's why I could never be a moderator or sysop or what have you. --Stumpers

Inclusion of Consoles and Companies

This has been bugging me for a long, long while, do we need articles on companies, consoles, etc.? Sure, an article on Super Nintendo and Shigeru Miyamoto may seem good, but when you look at the big picture, it when things spiral out of control. Heres what I mean:

We have articles on Nintendo gaming systems Mario has starred in, why not have articles on gaming consoles not made by Nintendo that Mario has starred on? Now we've got ColecoVision, the PC, etc. But what about the companies that helped in creating those systems and thus, the games? We have HAL Labs and Rare, Ltd., what about the rest? Next Atari has an article. But what about influential people in the creating of those companies/systems/games, Gunpei Yokoi and Charles Martinet get an article, why can't Chris Stamper have one; we might even have articles on the companies/people who made the comics/games, like whats been done with Valiant Comics.

You decide on what to do. -- Sir Grodus

Not enough Mario related games have been released on ColecoVison or the PC, but I see your point. I feel that companies, systems and people directly related to Mario have a place here. If one is not sure of related to Mario or related become disputed, it could always be put to a vote on a talk page. Maybe a list could be put together of possible articles that could spring from this issue and pick off the bad ones right off the bat. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:08, 8 March 2007 (EST)

I think we should develop a policysimilar to the importance policy, limiting articles about real-world subjects. Agreed?Knife (talk) 20:20, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Sounds like a plan. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:33, 8 March 2007 (EST)
Perhaps with a massive list of minor people? --Stumpers

Suggestions for Improvement

  1. A Featured Content page like on Wikipedia.
  2. A page where users can discuss how to improve the Main Page, such as easier navigation.
  3. Sysop/Bureacrat Nomination
  4. Use of <forum> on the Trouble Center. This orders all troubles by oldest to newest automatically. (requires installation)
  5. Create a bot to majorly update the navigation link pages and/or fight vandalism. (very complex)
  6. A page where users can discuss improving the wiki in general or recommend a new project.
  7. A {{Support}} and {{Oppose}} template for voting.
  8. Make more project-related userboxes. (like one on the Trouble Center or FAs)
  9. Increase overall communication by encouraging more use of the Wiki Alliance's chatroom.
  10. Clarify that that all users can now have 5 personal images. (perhaps through the 'Shroom)

I am going to be out for a while so if you oppose or support any of these ideas, don't expect an answer from me. Also, I only made about an 1/8 of these ideas up, most of them came from other wikis. Anyway, I wish you a great Spring Break. Knife (talk) 20:41, 9 March 2007 (EST)

  1. First 1... nah... this Wiki is kinda small for that...
  2. Isn't that already here and at Steve's talk page? A page like that would help though, I think.
  3. This wiki doesn't do that.
  4. Sounds good
  5. That would be great. (Don't know if that can happen though)
  6. Isn't that already here and at Steve's talk page? A page like that would help though, I think. Copying and pasting rules.
  7. Not needed
  8. Yeah, that sounds good. But users can already do that now.
  9. All for it!
  10. Yeah, that should go on the main header in a week or so after most people know about RareWiki.

Additional Notes: LUCKY! I don't have Spring Break until APRIL! Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, APRIL!!!!Tadaaa!.gif 20:54, 9 March 2007 (EST)

  1. Example of what Knife's talking about – we don't have that many FAs or other types of FAs – not needed
  2. This is what this page is supposed to be for – but I think the Main Page is already simple enough – already fine at navigation points
  3. MarioWiki:FAQ clearly states in #9 of section 1.6 "On some wikis, like Wikipedia, it's acceptable to nominate yourself for sysophood at any time. On this wiki, however, openly asking is usually met with suspicion and resentment from regular users." – so no
  4. I'll consider it. We'd use DynamicPageLists and change the whole system around so that one request takes one sub-page. No need for another extension -
  5. I've tried and failed – I'm not a PHP coder, so I can't make these myself. Vandalism isn't that bad here, though – necessary?
  6. They can do that here, at the unofficial community portal. You're doing it right now.
  7. FA nominations already have support and oppose sections distinguished – no need -
  8. Agreed – MarioWiki:Userboxes hasn't been updated recently – I'll see what I can do
  9. Already happening – 3D, Max are frequent visitors, and more are coming
  10. It's 4, and I'll put it in Issue III tomorrow.

Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 21:02, 9 March 2007 (EST)

Five if you count the one in the sig Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, Example--> Tadaaa!.gif

hey! I added my Pichu userbox to that section! Max2 (talk)

  1. I agree with... Plumber
  2. Sounds good
  3. I like it
  4. yes
  5. no, we might as well add more sysops
  6. yes
  7. maybe
  8. yes
  9. yes
  10. yes--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--
I mainly support numbers 3 & 5. Number 3, because I think it's a good idea to have nominations, so the community could decide on a potential sysop candidate. I like the idea of a bot because it could be programmed to do automated text replacements (Example: - Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door + Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door), and it could automatically refresh the Sandbox on a daily basis, so it's not filled up all the time. --KPH2293 23:46, 13 March 2007 (EDT)


Is there a bad quality image improvement template, if there isn't could somebody make it. And also, could somebody make a template for canceled Featured Articles, saying something like this: "It was canceled from being a nomination because of the improvement something below". YoshiFan

{{cancelednom}} covers the 2nd request and I'll make the 1st one based off of {{image}} right now - Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 12:31, 10 March 2007 (EST)
{{image-quality}} - Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 12:35, 10 March 2007 (EST)

List of Cameos Page

This topic was brought up from the Pikmin discussion page. Do you think that we should create a page for each cameo, or merge tham all together?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Merge and section for each character. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:27, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Definitely a section for each character – if someone gets around to it. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:40, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

So you guys are talking about keeping the list of cameos page, right?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

You mean creating this? Yes. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:44, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Cool.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

EX: The cameos page would have a section for Wario cameos, then a section for Mario cameos, then Yoshi cameos, etc. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:45, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Now we need to add merge templates on all of the pages.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

and a page for charavters that are un-marioverse. - Ultimatetoad 18:57, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

Do we include the cameos the characters in the Mario series have made in other games? {Like Chain Chomps in Zelda) Oh, and the SSB characters still should get their own page. The Samus and Link part should have a Main Article:Link thing. Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, PuddingTadaaa!.gif


We need more sysops at times like this.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--


That's WHY she strikes, genius! PEACHYCAKES IS BACK!!!! Max2 THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

I agree with aipomF gLarrynana.gif

I agree with all of you. YellowYoshi deserves Sysop. Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

Cool. I guess. Though I wasn't here when the "DKC" incident of '07 showed up... So I wouldn't know all that happened. 3dhammer.gif 3D, who for sysop? 3dhammer.gif

User:YellowYoshi398. Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

OK. Anyway, who else could be nominated for sysop? And aren't there currently, like, almost too much? 3dhammer.gif 3D, nominations! 3dhammer.gif

There are, but I see most of you are here when there aren't Sysops. I would vote YY. Ill see if I can talk to Steve about it.HK47, .

I don't want to be, seriously, I sware, but... we should make users who are on a lot sysops, or temporay sysops. Max2 (talk)

Too busy getting used to being a Sega Sysop? Lol.HK47, .

well... yeah. Max2 (talk)

Max2 shouldn't be sysop for a lot of reasons... Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

He's an okay Sysop. He's picking up experience on the Sega Wiki. EVERYONE JOIN IT! I vote yellowdinodude.HK47, .

I think we need to get more than one sysop. Two or three, maybe. Also, I don't think that was Peachycakes. It looked more like a sockpuppet of Ecmsthomaslogan (talk) and Ecmstommyscott (talk). --KPH2293 12:59, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

What is this "lot of reasons" in which you speak? Max2

Lol. I'll check the ip.HK47, .

I think Aipom, Yoshi626, 3D, and YellowYoshi should be sysops. Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif

I have the ips. I'm gonna keep 'em a secret, but it wasn't Peachycakes.HK47, .

O RLY? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! And me for sysyop? Interesting. 3dhammer.gif 3D, gt bk 2 wrk. 3dhammer.gif

I Knew it! And Plumber: Really? Thank you. I'm honored. :) --KPH2293 13:15, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

Me too.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

I'm not.HK47, .

We need sysops with varying computer usage hours so there's atleast 1 sysop on the site. I like the sysop choices too.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Yeah. I'm, like, on a lot. Mornings on weekends. That's when the trolls strike. 3dhammer.gif 3D, I nominate someone who's on. 3dhammer.gif

Yeah, your right, Aipom, we should have that. f_wikiimagem_a663437.pngBean

I still can't believe how many reverts I did this morning.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Neither can I. I had to revert some reverts by reverters who didn't know what they were doing! >_< 3dhammer.gif 3D, @#$%. 3dhammer.gif

I've reverted vandalism before [1] (scroll down a bit), and I know how to use the sysop tools from experimenting on the Test Wiki. [2] --KPH2293 13:25, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

I just edit a lot and know how to use sysop tools. I could do a bit btter than.. certain sysyops... >_~ 3dhammer.gif 3D, *squint* 3dhammer.gif

Unfortunately, talking about it reduces your chances of Sysophood. YoshiNumbersdude, put in a good word for me on the Test Wiki. Im HK-47 there, as well.HK47, .

OK. And isn't it only bad if you actually ask? --KPH2293 13:35, 17 March 2007 (EDT)
Asking essentially Eliminates it. Talking makes it less accsessable.HK47, .
I see. My apologies. --KPH2293 13:49, 17 March 2007 (EDT)
No need for apoogies.HK47, .

I'm always on 'till about 4 clock in the morning. But no sysop for me. All of the sysops are all serious and no fun. I like to be random and stuff. Isyou 13:51, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

So is PJ.. and so am I. 3dhammer.gif 3D, I think, therefore iPod. 3dhammer.gif

Uhhhh....... serious? Me? Lol. I put a deletion reason as Plans having been on display at the local planning office on Alpha Centauri for 15 million earth years. I started the Cheese Craze of '07. I give everyone a crazy nickname. MeIS, I'm not serious. I'm human. I'm a sysop.HK47, .

Your a sysop? :O OMG i never knew that. And its prounounced isyou. Isyou 14:00, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

[Being random is FUN!]Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, Pigs eat my bells for show and tell!Tadaaa!.gif


I've been a sysop. And I'm callin' ya MeIS. Its your new nickname.HK47, .




Getting More sysops would be grrreat...(Plumber should be a sysop, as well as Aipom) but other than the edition of three sysops. Maybe we should have a Spam Specialist Group. To consists of Three Spam specailists. Let threee people have the power to ban Spammers for 24 hours, or until a Sysop can handle it.

Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

good idea! Max2 (talk)

At the current moment in time, that isn't exactly nesseccary. I'm here for the time being.HK47, .

Steeeve isn't here.HK47, .
For now.HK47, .

I'm fine with me but I'm putting that Yoshi626 is an AWESOME USER!--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Really? Thanks. :) --KPH2293 16:29, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

You got about 1,000 good contributions in about a month!--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

True... wow, I'm almost up to 5,000, now. --KPH2293 16:48, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

I think the new sysops should be:

  • 3d
  • Aipom
  • Knife

F gLarrynana.gif

I knew you had many edits!--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Heh. Yeah. Thanks :) --KPH2293 16:56, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

3D sould be a sysop!!!!!!!!

The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNGA user who wants to be(and I get up early on weekends!)

I support Aipom and 3D, but I thought Knife WAS a sysop. TheGreatBlockyBoo 16:57, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

Oh yeah, I forgot about Knife. He should be one too. Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, Knife WAS a sysop. Not anymore.Tadaaa!.gif

He was impeached for private reasons.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Where's Steve or Wayoshi when you need them.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

He wanted to be a normal user. Wayoshi?....... .... ......... ......... .........Ahem. Wayoshi?HK47, .

Seriously, he's official. You'd rather have an official sysop over a cool one?HK47, .

I didn't mean it like that! He just seems like he waves a wand over a problem and poof it's solved. Like the RareWiki Isyou problem. I still think you're awesome!--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Should Steve be notified of this on his talk page? --KPH2293 17:10, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

Can I be a sysop(i get up early on weekends!) The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNGsuper sysop!

Check number 9 on here. --KPH2293 17:18, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

Ok! The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNGI made that pic for nothing

poor Batman. I feel sorry for him.HK47, .

LOL. Also, should Steve be notified of this on his talk page? --KPH2293 17:22, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

good thing it's fun making those!! The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNG:)

Yes Steve should.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Done. I've notified him. --KPH2293 17:30, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

Bowser's Wife: Article or No Article?

Would an article like "Bowser's Wife" belong here? The article doesn't exist yet, but I think that it would be a good addition for the wiki if placed in the category: "Implied". Here are my reasons:

1) Having babies in the Marioverse is a tricky issue. While some characters (Petey Piranha, Yoshi) can generate offspring without a partner, it's pretty much taken for granted that humans and certain species require intercourse in order to have babies. 2) In Paper Mario 2, from what I recall, Koops has a father and a mother. (Although I may be mistaken.) Although we don't know exactly HOW the father and mother had Koops, it is reasonable to assume that they had sex. (If I may be so forward.) 3) Since Bowser is a Koopa, and he has Koopalings, it is fair to come to the conclusion that Bowser has (or at least once had) a wife. Of course, it is possible that Bowser, being a special kind of Koopa, didn't need a mate (perhaps he has magic offspring-creation powers we don't know about?), or that some crazy explanation twists this whole thing. 4) A Nintendo power issue (a secondary-canon source of information) listed Bowser's wife as Klawdia Koopa, although that was most likely a joke.

Anyway, what all this is saying is that there is quite a bit of (flimsy) evidence in the Marioverse that points to Bowser having a wife. Of course, this is just on the borderline between wiki-worthy and un-wiki-worthy. I think that the decision could go either way.

So, the question is: Is this enough evidence to give Bowser's Wife (possibly Klawdia Koopa) a (most likely short) article in the "Implied" category?Waluigi Freak 99 13:37, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

well, we wrote one for Wario's mom... but, no. should we write an article on Wario's dad? Max2

Wario's dad? No. Klawdia Koopa? Maybe, but it was probably a joke from Nintendo Power. Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif

Klawdia was mentioned by Nintendo Power, not a Mario game/manual. If there is ever a reference to her in-game, we can make an article. Same with Wario's mom. - Ultimatetoad

Not to play devil's advocate, how are the storks involved? Any thoughts? --Stumpers: shocked but a little giggly to see the s word in the SMW)

Ah, yes, the stork. I forgot about him. However, the point is not HOW Bowser and his wife had a baby, but rather if Bowser's wife was necessary for that process. The stork only seems to show up at homes with a daddy AND a mommy. Therefore, Bowser's wife, if that assumption were true, would be imperative for Bowser's eight children.
Or, it is possible that storks only work for humans, as Yoshis can have kids without them.
As I said, this is a tricky issue.Waluigi Freak 99 19:40, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

well... nah, I'll keep the main page "clean" if you know what i mean. Max2

Didn't the stork also work for Donkey Kong? Hmm... Also, are you sure about Yoshi's being able to self-replicate? I mean, Yoshi's use their eggs for a lot more than hatching baby Yoshies (trapping enemies, bombs, etc) and I have yet to see a baby Yoshi flying from an egg explosion. But here's my two cents: make a redirect from Klaudia to a new section we would make on Bowser's page for her, explaining the supposed existance, etc. --Stumpers

What is going on?

What has happened to this wiki over the course of a week? Talking about cheese, using the wiki as a forum, uploading unused images to the wiki? I doubt you all would do this if Wayoshi or Son of Suns was still around. And HK, you are giving the wrong idea about this wiki. You are encouraging more chaotic randomness. So please everyone, stop all this random stuff. If you want, take this to the forum.Knife (talk) 14:23, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Where are Wayoshi and Son of Sons, anyway? Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif

Yeah, where are they? Wayoshi got premoted and there was major early morning vandalism, and Steve may add more sysops.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Wayoshi's away every other weekend. --KPH2293 14:49, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Oh, I didn't know that. Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif 14:52, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Knife, thank you for saying that. I will now delete Talk:Cheese Lovers and no one is stopping me. Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

OK.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--


As painful as it is to see our wiki crumbling into cheesiness, I too am a little opposed against the deletion of Cheese Lovers... --YellowYoshi398 14:58, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Sarcasm ya thanks for saying that knife Sarcasm Isyou 15:03, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Sarcasm Yeah,thank you Isyou for promoting stupidity on this wiki.Sarcasm Thank you Knife,it was geting too out of hand.Remind me of the retard page conflict.User:Gofer

My point is that you should take cheese talk to the forums.Knife (talk) 15:40, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

This IS getting a bit out of hand....I agree that we should have community categories, but not like this. Honestly, I've been meaning to make a Sysops category for a while now. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 16:18, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Would I be a good sysop? The MissingLinkBowser 2.PNG I'm NOT running but just wondering

I don't see the need for a sysop category. There is a special page for that. I don't think community categories are good overall. Maybe we can make user groups on the forum though.Knife (talk) 17:00, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

You might be, DB, as long as you don't go on a SEE MY VEST rampage again, lol :P Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif

I'm back, and I'm very disappointed about the "cheese" thing. This wiki is now big enough to have user categories, I suppose, but there were 96 edits on that Cheese category talk page. Unbelievable. And about the spam: I'll think about a spam committee on the wiki to minimize damage. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:08, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, I shoulda known better. *whistles* 3dhammer.gif 3D, HK, shut 'yo big yap-hole. 3dhammer.gif

New Bureaucrat

I'm not sure this is completely necessary to bring up, but... EVERYBODY CONGRATULATE WAYOSHI BECAUSE HE IS NOW A BEAUCAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or however you spell that. YoshiFan, congrats Wayoshi

Wow. Me and Wayoshi were always equals......... this is new.......... oh well.Kudos and Condolences.Mada Mada Dane
I can't wait until Wayoshi gets online. A waiting fan of Yoshi

then He'll rate my comic! I hope... Max2 (talk)

Well, I'm here. And thanks y'all. I'm busy right now handling some leftovers from the weekend, but feel free to drop by the chat to...well, chat! Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:21, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

HK is random like that. Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, One Piece is better than Naruto!Tadaaa!.gif

One Piece anime in Japanese is better (or so I've heard) Tadaa!2.gifPlumber, But they ruined it in AmericaTadaaa!.gif

Great job guys! We reached over 5000 articles! Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:06, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Of course I'm very late. ;) Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 19:20, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

I made the 5000 :) Tadaa!2.gifPlumberTadaaa!.gif


As was moted in a previous portion of this page, we are having an image problem. A few people have been reuploading unused images (several of these images I have deleted a number of times). I would like to make it known that if this continues, I will start suspending those responsible. If you are going to use an image, use it, don't wait for x-number of hours. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 20:47, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Good point. You should be using an image in a matter of minutes, anyways. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 21:41, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

Lot's To Be Deleted

If a sysop could, delete all of the stuff in to be deleted. There is lots of stuff. Isyou 21:39, 18 March 2007 (EDT)

I got through half of it. I'll finish it off later, or someone else can take care of it. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 21:40, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
I apologize for not being as on top of this as I normally am. My browser is acting up a bit and reloads the pages I've deleted. It makes it harder to find what needs to be deleted. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 21:55, 18 March 2007 (EDT)



A spammer named Tony Logan (Tonya?) has been spamming I fixed some and so has Bentendo. But please ban him or stop him.

Mario riding YoshiXzelionETC

Stupid school. Preventing me from helping the Wiki. --KPH2293 16:22, 19 March 2007 (EDT)

I don't think all sysops will pay attention to this. look at these sysops for example who are inactive:DarkInsanity,salty.I bet you they won't even come back.F gLarrynana.gif

Salty is on, like, 1 time every 4 months. Max2 (talk)

I think inactive sysops should have theirs sysops powers removed. User:Gofer

why??? Max2 (talk)
less sysops= trolls come on more because they're not intimidated
More Sysops= less trolls.
Trolls don't KNOW that sysops are inactive, right?

Some do. Some lie in wait, waiting to make a trollish move. Way back, a troll "I am Anime", said he was a legitimate user, I am Manga. It was because he had waited for a long time to make a move.Mada Mada Dane

I have alerted Salty about being more active, I hope he takes that seriously if he ever sees the message. A fan of Yoshi that hopes he's helpful

Actually, all they have to do is go to the recent changes page. It shows which users are here. Thankfully, I noticed Tonya and she didn't think of me as a threat.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Well, I've blocked Tony Logan's IP, so hopefully that'll cease the attacks from that user. --KPH2293 00:15, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Quick Question

In a Super Paper Mario trailer, mario went up to a sign. It said something about a Gate Keeper. Mario had to go to a house in the distance, and find the Gate Keeper in the house. He would then open the gate to a town (It looked alot like Flipside.) Does the Gate Keeper deserve an article? Full Metal MoogleKirbyWalk.gif

I guess. I saw it too. His name was Red the Gatekeeper. 3dhammer.gif 3D, huh? What? Huh? 3dhammer.gif

Just wondering cause another one of my artiles on a robot enemy in SMG got deleted. Thank you. Full Metal MoogleKirbyWalk.gif

The artice looks nice. 3dhammer.gif 3D, Red Blue. 3dhammer.gif


An idea I had. How would everyone feel about a Mario Fandom article? It would contain links to many of the popular Mario sites, Mario made fangames, toons, what have you. I seem to remember something to this effect was tried once before, but it was through the links page. I thought it would be a nice way to showcase many of the interesting info that wouldn't normally fit. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 05:45, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

That sounds like a pretty cool idea.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

I still support it being a part of or incorporated in the Links page. After all, all that would be posted on this type of page is links. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 16:08, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

Wayoshi makes sense.Mada Mada Dane
