Someone propose the chat be moved. Por favor. I don't think it even needs a vote, so I won't put it there.SaudyTalk!

I'm a bit undecided if I should leave it up to the community. I will consider it though. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 23:34, 29 May 2007 (EDT) EDIT: You're a sysop. You can bring it up. 23:34, 29 May 2007 (EDT)

What is this exactly? Mr. M Mr. M.jpg TCCragley ho!

Splitting

Shouldn't we perhaps move this page to subpages? The edit glitch problem is starting to happen again.Knife (talk) 13:57, 26 August 2007 (EDT)

Anyone?Knife (talk) 16:30, 26 August 2007 (EDT)

Agree.

Gofer

Go ahead and do such splitting. I don't what type of page is this.(Super F22 Pilot 05:00, 22 November 2007 (EST))

Complete Rehaul

Expect a complete rehaul of this page and archives WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS by me – sub-pages of this & archive page. It's next on my to-do list after a couple of new MarioWiki pages. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 20:59, 30 August 2007 (EDT)

No way, that would make things hard to find if you make a sub-page for every proposal or category. Plumber 23:29, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Question

I made the "It's not just america" section,and I want to know, did I set it out right? And about the deadline, is it just the time the section was made plus "EDT"? I don't understand that part... Davidk92

Archives

We need to do something about the super big archive page. It's getting harder and harder to load, so I can't even archive was I just removed from this page. -- Son of Suns

Simply make a second archive. The simplist explanation is almost always the corret answer. My Bloody Valentine
Should we archive 20 at a time like we do with the Main Page Talk? -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:20, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
Actually, screw it. I'll move everything now. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:20, 15 October 2007 (EDT)
Done. Not perfect, but it's done. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:56, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

I was thinking, a better way to lower load times would be to thin out the archives. How, you might ask. Simple, each section would have it's own archive. IE: Merges & Splits has it's own archive, right? Well, New Features would get the same treatment, as would all other sections. Yes, this will increase the number of archives, but it will drastically cut down the load times for everyone. In fact, I might just make this a proposal. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 01:52, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

Actually, now that I think about it, this isn't such a hot idea. It would create more work that needed. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 02:01, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

Didn't I start a proposal? User:TehBooKid/sig

Old proposals coming up again

Seriously, a lot of these proposals are on a previous subject. We should do something about it. MarioGalaxy2433g5 17:28, 15 January 2008 (EST)

It is annoying, but the most we can really do is point out that the proposal's already been done. Odds are the votes will turn out the same, or the person who proposed the idea again might just take it off, but we can't make them as far as I know. Besdies, things change over time, and I remember at least once instance where a proposal that passed was revoked the second time around because people looked at it again and thought of it a different way and realized it really wasn't really an idea that would fly. - Walkazo
A time limit could always be put in place. Say, a particular topic may not be brought up again until 60 days have past since it's last proposal. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 22:03, 16 January 2008 (EST)
I'd support a proposal for that if you made it. Stumpers! 01:17, 17 January 2008 (EST)
Perhap we could also have a list of proposal idea that passed/failed (and perhap the reasons why said proposals passed/failed) on the proposal page to indicate if it has already have been brought up. That way, perhap we could prevent something like the Improvement Drive from being brought up, accepted and turn out to be a simillar flop. --Blitzwing 06:59, 17 January 2008 (EST)
Good idea, it'd be like a shorter, easier to load version of the Proposal Archives. But that list is gonna be pretty big, so we should probably have it on a seperate page from Proposals. - Walkazo
Yeah, of course. I think this page (If it ever get created) should be organised in a table. --Blitzwing 17:12, 17 January 2008 (EST)
Or we could just say, at the top of the page, to check the archives before making a proposal. MarioGalaxy2433g5 16:35, 18 January 2008 (EST)

The thing is, there are tonnes of archived proposals and most people will not have the patience to look through them all. Plus some of us have old cruddy computers that can't handle the massive amounts of data in those archives or take forever to load the pages. - Walkazo

It isn't my fault that some of you have images in your sigs which significantly increases the loading. MarioGalaxy2433g5 17:28, 28 January 2008 (EST)

"Per"

I have a question, and this might make me sound not smart, but remember, I'm new here. What does it mean exactly when you say "per" all the time? I mean, by now, I've figured out that it means "I agree with this person." But why, and how did everyone here learn what it means? Everyone's always like, "Per this user. Per that user." And I'm wondering, "Is that a real thing that people say, or is it Mario Wiki slang? If you think I'm silly because I don't know this, just remember that I'm new here and I don't know many of these terms that people use. Could someone just answer the question? Orangeyoshi 20:33, 21 January 2008 (EST)

I just moved this so that it would get more traffic. I don't know personally. If it is MarioWiki slang I should put it in the glossary. Stumpers! 21:10, 21 January 2008 (EST)
It's not MarioWiki slang (see definition 4). Time Questions 01:21, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Ah. Thanks for helping me out. But why does everyone on MarioWiki use it? I didn't know what it means before Time Q showed me a dictionary entry. Before I was a user, did everyone on MarioWiki get together and say, "You know what? Let's say "Per" all the time when we're voting in proposals.", or what? (Just so you know, I wasn't serious.") Orangeyoshi 20:54, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Well, it's way faster than saying "I agree..." and I'm sure a few users have heard it used in real life (like me) or on other Wikis or polls or whatever, and decided to incorporate it here to save time, then everyone started copying them. But I dunno for sure; I've only been here a few months. - Walkazo
You're probably right. That's good enough for me. Orangeyoshi 18:55, 23 January 2008 (EST)


More rules

I believe we need two more rules for the proposals page. First, something that appears to be pretty obvious to me but the guidelines don't mention it yet: Every vote must be signed in order to count. (Currently, there's an unsigned vote by Fly Guy 2 on the proposal about Bob Hoskin's quote - I'm not suggesting the rule so his vote will be removed, I'm suggesting it to prevent this in future.) Second, there should be a deadline after which it won't be allowed anymore to edit the wording of a proposal - say, 3 days before the actual deadline. This is to prevent that users who don't visit the wiki very often have no chance to change their minds when a proposal's subject is modified (or when there are new voting options added - yeah, the Bob Hoskins proposal inspired me to that too :P). What do you think about this? Or should I start a proposal about it? ;) Time Questions 14:50, 9 February 2008 (EST)

Signing your votes sorta seems like one of those "well duh" things and I just assumed it was already a bonafied rule... But if it's not we should definitely make it one. But maybe we should be a bit less lenient about editing the proposal. Things like fixing grammar are fine, but if anyone wants to actually change the proposal they should just pitch the idea in the Comments section, and if anyone agrees with that change they can just vote Yes but also say something like "as long as User's idea is enacted." That way, the people who voted for the original proposal and never came back are still voting for the same thing (since it's always possible they only agree with the original idea, and not the updated one - it's like twisting someone's words and meaning, it's just not right). Also, if it's a major enough change, another section can always be added; if any of the original votes say something like "yes we can remove the quote, but I'd rather it be censored with f---" (to use a recent example) then whoever is mediating the proposal (or someone else) can move that vote accordingly (but keep the wording the same so you can tell where it originally was from). Long story short, I think saying "no more rewrites, period" or "only in the first 48 hours" is better than "not during the last 3 days". - Walkazo
Yeah, you're right, the changing crap was stupid. *Hits head* It should be a rule. BLOC PARTIER.

Problem

Am I the only one who gets an error when trying to view this page? Everytime I try to view it, a problem occurs, closing the page, and stopping me from viewing it. I'm not sure if anyone else has this problem, but its prooving fairly difficult for me to argue a Proposal. If the problem isn't just my Computer, then, can someone please try to figure out what is wrong with this page, and fix it. My Bloody Valentine

It works for me. Clear your browser's cache (Ctrl+Shift+Del for Mozilla) and then try to load it again. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 07:28, 20 March 2008 (EDT)

Making them?

How do I do it?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nintendofan146 (talk).

It is NOT editing Template:Proposal. Read the steps on this page carefully. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 23:35, 11 April 2008 (EDT)
Well, sorry to say this, but you made it the wrong way. I wouldn't really know how to make one either, but all the proposals I've seen list the proposer and deadline, and have a "support", "oppose", and "comments" section. And maybe you should explain your idea more, I don't really get it. Ruby Star TTYD.png CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 07:35, 12 April 2008 (EDT)
Me neither. Most characters' pages already have such quote sections. Please explain your proposal a bit further. Time Questions 07:41, 12 April 2008 (EDT)
And sign it, put the deadline, and make Voting and Comments sections. Ruby Star TTYD.png CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 08:55, 12 April 2008 (EDT)

Another Error...

Huh? The page keeps giving my Computer an error everytime I try to load it... AGAIN! I checked the file history, and browsed through all edits in the last three days, and it didn't mess up until this edit. Strangely, when I skipped that edit, and moved on to the following edit, it was working fine, til' I attempted to view Time Q's following edit, in which it bugged up again... Uh, that sounded kinda stupid. But it's true. I think it has something to do with PY's sig, but I'm not sure. Can anyone give me an explanation or a solution? :\ My Bloody Valentine

All the pages you linked to worked for me. The problem must be on your end. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 10:42, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

...Ugh... I guess I'm the only one with the problem. Blitzwing says the problem comes from someone's sig, and I have reason to believe it's PY's, but that doesn't explain how two of her edits were fine for me, but the one between them gave me an error. My Computer must be getting old. -_-' I guess I won't be able to vote for a while. D: My Bloody Valentine

I was discussing this error with Stumpers, and he agreed with me that we shouldn't allow "special sigs" on the Proposals page. They cause errors for some people, and according to Stumpers, they prove as a hastle in archives. Since I can't, ya know, propose anything (and a proposal on something like this is stupid), I ask that rather than signing sigs, people merely sign their name. Like this -> Pokemon DP.

The problem with the sigs in the archieve is that they can cause computers to get sluggish when there are, say, 10+ proposals on a page for, say... 100-300 sigs. I don't have any specific numbers on my side, but if someone want me too I could check out the archieve again. Anyway, this was coming up a while ago that users who have slow computers don't check archieves because they're so hard to see. Stumpers! 01:32, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
Is there any kind of shortcut to put only the name instead of the sig? I always put ~~~(~), which is converted into my sig. I don't think it's very attractive to put the whole [[User:xyz|xyz]] code everytime you sign a comment. Time Questions 06:29, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

I'm sure there's a shortcut to signing your name in that style. Not sure, though. My Bloody Valentine

You can use {{user}} for it. I agree we could make this page more formally and easier to load and stop these annoying line breaks because of problems in people's sigs when we use that way. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:21, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
I'm all for that idea. We could just add it as a rule at the top of the page. — Stooben Rooben 12:23, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Well, if we're gonna go along with the idea, can we do it really soon? I'm eager to vote! D: My Bloody Valentine

Do we even need a proposal to do that? Since it's an answer to a technical problem I don't think it's democratic for people to not be able to vote or view past votes because people desire to use a signature... Stumpers! 23:26, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Yeah... So, what's the final decision? :| My Bloody Valentine

I don't think we need a proposal, everyone here seems to agree that it's best to not use signatures, so let's lay down the rule. Time Questions 05:17, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

OK, perfect. I'd do it, but... Ya know, I can't visit the page right now cuz of said problem. X| My Bloody Valentine

I added a note to the rules, feel free to edit it. So, uh, what to do with the current signatures? Should we convert them all to the {{user}} thing? Time Questions 07:56, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

...Uhhhhh... Lol. This is funny. Dude, I Can't visit the page BECAUSE the sigs are there. Unless someone else removes them, I am still unable to visit the page. xP My Bloody Valentine

LOL. I didn't talk specifically to you when I said "feel free to edit it", but of course you're right, someone should remove the sigs so you can visit the page again, haha. I'll start right now. Time Questions 08:04, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

Yay! Thanks! :D If the page still messes up after the sigs are removed, I'm killing myself. o_o My Bloody Valentine

So... does it work now? Time Questions 08:34, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

OMGWTF?! IT STILL DOESN'T WORK! ...Just kidding! :P It works perfectly now! :D - Pokemon DP

It definitely looks a lot neater now. Good idea. ;) — Stooben Rooben 14:53, 14 May 2008 (EDT)
Thanks! Stumpers! 00:40, 15 May 2008 (EDT)


But now no one knows what time someone made a comment. Uh, is that a problem? Ruby Star TTYD.png CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 13:41, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

It will always be in the page's history if a dispute comes up, and I don't believe it ever has yet, especially with the precident that a proposal cannot be majorly changed after submission. Stumpers! 18:29, 17 May 2008 (EDT)
Lots of people (myself included) don't include the time anyway... - Walkazo
I'd like to note that by adding 5 "~"s (that's ~~~~~), it adds solely the time stamp to your statement. That might come in handy for those of you who commonly place times stamps in your signature. — Stooben Rooben Although, I may have added this comment a little late. :P 19:52, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Repeal?

Are we allowed to make a proposal to repeal a proposal? BLOC PARTIER.

Hmm, that might be a good idea. Courts allow repeals against certain verdicts; I don't see why that shouldn't apply here. — Stooben Rooben 19:54, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
It happened before, so yes, it's possible. --Blitzwing 20:09, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
You'd have to wait four (?) months after the proposal, though, because of that new rule about no proposal replicating another proposal... hypothetically anyway. I suppose it depends on which proposal we're talking about. Stumpers! 20:32, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
Erm, there's no rule about that. I only added the "No Banjo & Conker" notice because:

1: The proposal gets brought up every two weeks, (Infact, before I added the notice, Plumber talked about creating a Banjo & Conker proposal right after a proposal for it got removed.)

2: The result is alway the same: No article for these two.

3: IT'S BLOODY ANNOYING.

Otherwise, there's no rule about replicating a proposal :). Blitzwing (talk · gnome work)

Thank you. :D BLOC PARTIER.
I just hope we won't get stuck going around in a circle over this FA voting-reworking thing... - Walkazo

Removed Votes

I don't understand why votes are removed. Even if they are fan/biased votes, a vote is a vote. Like I've said before, a fan vote has just as much value as a per vote. So why are we picking through vote reasons and removing them based on "not a strong enough reason"? I understand people can re-vote after a vote has been removed, but what if you aren't active between the period your vote was removed and the proposal ended?Knife (talk) 16:54, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

IIRC, your "reason" was something like "As long as it doesn't get overused" - that's not a reason but a condition on which you support the proposal. This doesn't work; either you support the proposal in it's full form or you don't. I can see your point that it might be a problem if votes are removed and the users are not notified - but it's one of the rules that any vote must have a strong reason, so I don't think it's unfair to remove votes which break a rule. Time Questions 17:09, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Also, the 'a vote is a vote' argument doesn't really hold water. All voting systems have rules in play to prevent abuse and to assure that most of the people voting know what they are voting on. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 18:44, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
"Like I've said before, a fan vote has just as much value as a per vote." I'm curious about this one. How is supporting another user's opinion on the same level as supporting a fictional subject? Stumpers! 23:39, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I thought that statement was a bit off too. - Walkazo

Hmm... yeah, I understand.Knife (talk) 15:18, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Article Moves

I was wondering if a proposal could be made to move an article (for example, Cyan Yoshi to "Light Blue Yoshi")? If so, which section of the page would it go under? Stumpers (talk)

I don't think an actual proposal is needed for this. Why not make a "pseudo-proposal" on the Cyan Yoshi talk page? If there's no agreement, it can still be made an "official" proposal. (I would put it in the "Changes" section.) Time Questions 18:30, 24 June 2008 (EDT)
I opened the topic on the talk page, so far there are just two of us talking about it, and he/she is also supporting it. Stumpers! 18:55, 24 June 2008 (EDT)
You could also put {{talk}} on the talk page, trying to call attention to it (although often it doesn't quite seem to have the desired effect :/). If there are no objections, I think it's fine to move the article, no matter how many people actually voted. Time Questions 19:13, 24 June 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for the advice! I'll be sure to keep the pages on my watch list in case anyone objects. Stumpers! 21:47, 24 June 2008 (EDT)

Template Inside Scrollbox?

When archiving Walkazo's Fire and Ice template proposal, I noticed that it doesn't seem to be possible to put a template (Soler put a template as an example on the proposals page) inside the scrollbox. So when I archived it, I put <!-- before and --> after the template syntax. Is there a way to show the template inside the scrollbox? Time Questions 09:09, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

I don't think so. Templates shouldn't really be put on the page either, just linked to. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 09:29, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
I agree, but what should we do in this case? Time Questions 09:31, 13 July 2008 (EDT)
Well.... Maybe we could cut/paste the coding on the page of the template and put it instead of {{Template:Something}}. --Blitzwing 12:15, 13 July 2008 (EDT)

new proposal

how do make one? can I have a step by step dont wanna get it wrong...
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lu-igi board (talk).

It's easiest to simply copy another proposal, and replace it with your text. So, go to the Proposals page, click "edit", and choose a proposal to copy. Select the appropriate section (depends on what your proposal is about: Splits & Merges, Changes, Removals, etc.) and paste it there (if there already is a proposal in the section, paste it below). Now, change the header and the actual proposal text, and be sure to replace the Proposer and Deadline lines. How to add the correct deadline is explained at the top of the Proposals page. Remove the Support, Oppose and Comments sections, leaving just the headers, and then it's done, I think. Time Questions 06:03, 24 August 2008 (EDT)

Signature Tech Issue?

Can someone tell me what exactly is wrong with putting sig templates on this page? They worked completely fine at the beginning. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 14:02, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

Some sigs mess up the numbering of lists. Which is why I'm trying to make people use the user template on FA nomination articles as well. Marcelagus (TCE)
That isn't the only reason. As seen before this "policy" was put up, a lot of sigs were used. Due to this, it gave some users' computers problems, such as Pokemon DP's computer. --Palkia47 14:25, 13 September 2008 (EDT)
The numbering problem is from incorrect tag(s), usually forgetting to put </tag>. I have no idea how "too many sigs" can cause even a weak comp to crash. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 14:52, 13 September 2008 (EDT)
The "too many sigs" problem can be seen a few headers above. --Palkia47 14:56, 13 September 2008 (EDT)
The images in the signatures are what give the old computers grief, especially when it comes to viewing the archives. Also, the backgrounds have a nasty habit of streaking and obscuring text further down the page (on my machine, at any rate). - Walkazo 15:06, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

Per votes

This is something that's been bugging me for a while now. Many votes are simply "Per X" and nothing more. While I don't know how all this "per" nonsense got started, it needs to stop, at least with those users whose vote consists of "Per X". It doesn't add anything and only serves to provide one more vote to overcome when actual reasons could be given instead.

By the by, "per" is nothing new. I remember using it in an edit summary as early as 2006. However, I've only rarely used it since then and only when its use is necessary. I know it's a lot to say about a simple three-letter word, but I'm seeing it everywhere on the Proposals page and it's irritating me. Stop saying it if you don't have anything to add. Phoenix Rider 15:00, 13 November 2008 (EST)

There was a proposal to get rid of Per Votes. It failed miserably.

The reason? "Per" mean you agree with someone and you have nothing to add. I'd rather see a bunch of three-letter support than redundant votes that takes up space merely to say the Exact same thing. --Blitzwing 17:14, 13 November 2008 (EST)

I'm not trying to be funny when I say this, but...per Blitz. — Stooben Rooben DX 19:19, 13 November 2008 (EST)
I agree with Blitz. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...hahahahahah i didnt use per blitz at all.Talk? C???
Me three! There just three letters. (Is this turning into a proposal?) YS Grape Artwork.pngGrapes YS Grape Artwork.png
I do see your point, Phoenix; there's a lot of one-off voters who just put "Per X" in order to make their votes count. It may seem unfair that their quick votes count just as much as those by users who are actually concerned about an issue, comment on it etc. But what do you want to do about it? Ban the phrase? Soon another one would be found. It won't help. Plus, it's indeed a very useful phrase if you agree with someone completely. Time Questions 11:07, 14 November 2008 (EST)
"In accordance with the assertions of TimeQ"... just one example. It's one of those things that I wouldn't mind if it stopped, but stopping it would nearly be impossible. Stumpers! 14:00, 14 November 2008 (EST)

I also agree with Blitzwing's assertion that "Per X" is better than the redundant rehashing of the same ideas; he put it better than I could have, and that's often the case with proposals. It's not necessarily the "Per"-er's fault they don't have anything to add: if they got there first, they would have been the one writing the speech and being "Per"ed, but they weren't. Unfortunately, there's no fair way to separate them from the "one-off" voters, and it looks like the stigma and the phrase will remain for quite a while. - Walkazo 20:48, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Proposal deletes

Why was the super mario wiki in various languages proposal deleted? TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom

Only Steve (the founder) can make that sort of monumental decision for the Wiki; it's not up to us. - Walkazo 19:22, 15 November 2008 (EST)

I have a proposal. We should add 10 users to the administrator rank, therefore the wiki gets more protection against vandalism.MT Televisa Plk 16:12, 25 January 2009 (EST)

We have 12 sysops, 5 bureaucrats and 2 patrollers, but no "administrators" (Because the rank doesn't exist, durrrrrr), we have a lot more than what we need. --Blitzwing 18:01, 25 January 2009 (EST)
One patroller, Blitzwing I gave up the rank. YS Grape Artwork.pngGrapes YS Grape Artwork.png
Blitzwing: administrators is a Wikia rank. It's basically a sysop. Stumpers! 19:52, 25 January 2009 (EST)
I think "Administrator" can also be used as a blanket term for Stewards, 'Crats, Sysops and Patrollers (anything that's not a User). - Walkazo 20:16, 25 January 2009 (EST)
Indeed. And besides, the small amount of vandalism we do get is always controlled by the, er, "Administrators." Besides, the Bureaucrats decide Adminship anyway, so a proposal wouldn't do anthing. BLOC PARTIER.

Ending Coding

How does the code & n b s p ; (without the spaces between the characters) work? It was on the bottom of the page for the longest time, and got accidentally removed a couple months ago without being missed. Today I noticed that the new proposal's "Comments" header wasn't working: it showed up as a proper header in the preview, but once I saved, it appeared as ====Comments==== on the main page (though it acted like a normal header in that it didn't appear as part of the "Oppose" sub-header when it was edited). Once I put the code back on the bottom of page, it worked fine. What gives? Is it just to give the bottom section some sort of content so the header works? Also, why doesn't <nowiki> work on it? - Walkazo 21:18, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Aw, crap, I put my comment in that section... Should I put it above the little slippery code or below it? And I'm also curious about Walkazo's question... BLOC PARTIER.
Put it above the code, with a line skip or two in between (so it doesn't get archived by mistake again). Actually, that brought me to another point (which I was gonna save until after my questions were answered, but now's as good a time as any): there should be an actual rule advising people to comment above the code and to make sure it doesn't get removed by mistake. - Walkazo 21:31, 1 February 2009 (EST)
&nbsp; creates a non breaking space, which is basically just a regular space, but it won't automatically become a line break if a word runs over the end of a line. Instead, the last "normal" space on the line is used. It's actually not a wiki thing, as evidenced by the fact that <nowiki> doesn't work. I think it was invented to make French quotation marks work right, but don't quote me on that. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 23:40, 1 February 2009 (EST)

If you're talking about the proposal made for using North American region names, it is because there was a proposal to use PAL names that passed not a long time ago. YosharioYoshi Mario Hat SM64DS.png

Oh, I'm sorry that was Yoshikart's proposal. What proposal are you talking about? YosharioYoshi Mario Hat SM64DS.png

I believe Lu-igi board is talking about a deleting repeated polls proposal. The proposal was removed because that is already one of the rules, so any user can remove repeated polls as needed. -- Son of Suns (talk)

Remove Tucayo's Vote from "Change 60-Day Rule to One Month" Proposal

"The last proposal wasnt more than 60 days ago, so it cant be reversed"

This is the reason for Tucayo's vote. But it has been proven wrong. Here is a quote from the comments section directed towards another user who had the same thoughts as Tucayo.

"Super Mario Bros. is actually correct. This proposal would not overturn the previous proposal, and thus it should be allowed. The previous (unstated) rule was actually any proposal could immediately be overturned at any time. The current rule is to wait sixty days to overturn or reverse a decision. This proposal would clearly not reverse the decision of the original proposal back to zero waiting time, so it is within the rules."

This is the quote. It was made by Son of Suns. It is quite clear that Tucayo's vote was cast in bad faith, so shouldn't it be deleted His vote does not have a good reason with it, he says the proposal is against the rules when it isn't, and is that a good reason to oppose it? Tucayo never stated any other reasons why he opposes the proposal, so that is why he should add a better reason to his vote or remove it.

If you think it should, go to my proposal and vote to remove it. Thank you. Super Mario Bros. (talk)?

Cast in bad faith? I think it's more likely that he just misunderstood the 60 day proposal. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 16:31, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

Now do you get what I mean (Look Above)? Ok, I guess you're right Super Mario Bros. (talk)

Yes, sorry, I misunderstood it, i'll erase my vote Tucayo (talk)

Nevermind, it is ok, you can keep your vote, as you have a good voting record any way. I also think that it was wrong of me to go pestering you and being a tyrant. That alone forced my conscience to let your vote count. Super Mario Bros. (talk)

Clear Majority Rule

Since the Clear Majority Rule (number 11 on the list) is a little elaborate, here's a bit more exposition to make it absolutely clear what the new policy entails.

If a proposal has more than ten (10) votes, it can only pass or fail by a margin of three (3) votes (ex. 14-11). If a proposal reaches the deadline and the total number of votes for each option differ by two (2) or less votes (ex. 14-12) or if there is a tie, the deadline will be extended for another week. If a clear majority is still not reached by that point, the deadline will be extended again; however, the proposer is encouraged to remove the current proposal and rethink it (i.e. decide on any possible compromises), so as to better accommodate the needs of the community. As the proposal did not pass or fail, the revised version can be re-pitched at any time (with no mandatory 28-day waiting period).

The point of this rule is so that large, controversial changes cannot be made without the clear support of the community; this ensures that more users will be content with the latest policies, and lessens the possibility of proposals being brought up multiple times (and alternating passing or failing), thus necessitating lots of work but yielding little progress. - Walkazo 17:40, 14 April 2009 (EDT)

What happened to the page?

for some reason, the proposals page went back to an earlier version, changeing various edits by me and other people. - ThunderZAFUM_LOGO.jpgThunder

Not just this page. It seems that all edits made on April 27 have disappeared (that goes at least for my account). --Grandy02 14:15, 28 April 2009 (EDT)
Someone hacked my account yesterday. They wiped out almost all of the forums. So, when Steve returned, he set the server back by 24 hours. All changes on the wiki and forum were reverted and erased. — Stooben Rooben 14:17, 28 April 2009 (EDT)

New Rule

The new rule is: "If the Sysops deem a proposal unnecessary or potentially detrimental (harmful) to the upkeep of the Super Mario Wiki, they have the right to remove it at any time." It may sound tyrannical at first, but it is only meant as a last resort to stop proposals the Sysops feel would not be beneficial to the Wiki should they pass. If a problematic proposal appears, we'll take it to the Sysop boards on the MarioWiki Forum and discuss it amongst ourselves. In order to give the community a chance to speak for itself, we will not veto a proposal until there is no hope of it failing through the normal voting procedure. This, of course, only applies to valid proposals: anything in violation of the Wiki's rules and regulations can be deleted by any Sysop at any time. Vetoing proposals requires the approval of the majority of the Sysops; however, the way the Sysops are voting here on the Proposals page should not be read as an indication of what we may be deciding behind the scenes on the Forums. In no way do the Sysops' votes hold more sway than those of regular users. Again, this rule is a last resort only, and we sincerely hope we will never have to use it. - Walkazo 19:03, 11 August 2009 (EDT)

So we can just do it?

Wait, so if we have a proposal, can we just shoot it out onto the page as active to support/oppose? Or do we have to get some sort of approval first? User:Dry Paratroopa/sig

Edit Warring

Guys... Come on. Seriously, what I see inj the history for the Proposals page is saddening. All of those who participated in the edit warring– Marioguy1, Walkazo, and Edofenrir– know better. If there is an edit war, please take it to the talk page. I'm sorry if I am misunderstanding the situation right now, and I apologize if I called out anyone who did not edit war, I'm doing this based on what I see in the history (so feel free to explain your motives or what ever). Now could we be civil and discuss the whole issue here? Super Mario Bros. (talk)

You should probably get your sources right before lecturing anyone! I don't get where you see an edit war here! I merely updated my own vote, and Walkazo did her job and tried to clarify the situation! - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 23:11, 4 December 2009 (EST)

Unused Images

  • I'm seeing a large number of unused images, and no one is around to delete them. I would make a Proposal regarding this, but I fear that it'll get rejected, just like how my featured image request got rejected.
    As of now, there are as many as 150 different unused images, and someone should really step up and delete them if he/she considers them to be unnecessary. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 13:53, 8 December 2009 (EST)
  • Probably St00ben (if he's not necessarily busy), and I will try working on that. This is a bit more cluttering than its seems by so far. I'll do this after school. ;o RAP.pngRAP... 14:04, 8 December 2009 (EST)
Unused files are already mentioned on the Wiki Maintenance page. A full list of unused images can be found here. The Wiki Maintenance page calls for incorporating them into articles or tagging them with {{delete}} already, so I don't think a proposal is needed for that since unused images are already being taken care of either way, or at least should be.--vellidragon 14:05, 8 December 2009 (EST)
That's the thing. No one ever seems to add {{delete}} tags onto the images that are no longer being used. I guess that's because they're unsure about if they want to use the images again in the future. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 15:32, 8 December 2009 (EST)
Or also perhaps they forgot them and left them alone and unused... If they don't use those images (specially personal images) then will be deleted after a period of time regardless if they had or not the deletion label.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

It should be easy to figure out. Obviously delete the unused fan images, or even the ones that are used but could be confused for official ones... Unused images that obviously appear to have high quality or could be used in some way should remain, but at least searched around a bit for a place to put them. Redstar 15:55, 8 December 2009 (EST)

Boss Asects Merge Proposal

Umm. Okay? Who's playing dirty now? One day before, everyone decides to remove my entire proposal when it could have been done at the proper time? I made it perfectly clear that my proposal wasn't edited or revised or anything. This sickens me. Just because it actually looks like I'm going to pass, you have it removed. Redstar 21:06, 14 December 2009 (EST)

You had already broke twice the rules with that proposal. We had a consensus agreeing on this. Thanks and have a nice day. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 21:23, 14 December 2009 (EST)
"Twice the rules"? What are you talking about? I removed examples, which had no bearing on the proposal, and no one raised a complaint until one day until closing-time and I was in the lead. The removed parts could have easily been asked to be re-added the same day, but for some reason it was waited until now... And what's the other supposed breaking of rules? Redstar 21:31, 14 December 2009 (EST)
Rule 10:"Proposals can only be rewritten or deleted by their proposer within the first three days of their creation.". IIRC you edited the proposal twice. This is no new rule. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 21:41, 14 December 2009 (EST)
Once again, I never rewrote the proposal itself, only the examples included therein. The examples were never a part of the proposal, so were excluded from it. And, despite your claims, I never rewrote it "twice". Redstar 21:43, 14 December 2009 (EST)

The following are a list of which minions are proposed to be merged, to whom, and why.

This part, followed by your "examples" disprove your claim. Examples have to be replacable, but the quoted line make them integral to the Proposal, as well as unexchangable. Simple as that, editing any of those after the 3 day span is voter deception and a solid violation of rule #10. As for the second violation, consider the abuse of rule #4. The reason this decision took so long is because the administrative staff likes to discuss things properly before taking actions rashly. There's no way to deny these violations have happened, so there's no further need of arguing. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 21:57, 14 December 2009 (EST)

Edo beat me, but anyway. Check the original proposal It had 8 entries, and it says "The following are a list of which minions are proposed to be merged, to whom, and why. ": It says they are the only cases that will be merged, not that they are examples. Later, there were 2 edits of the proposal. this one and this one. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 22:00, 14 December 2009 (EST)

@Edo: That list was nowhere near comprehensive, or definitive. I said they were "proposed", not that this proposal would be the last call on them. Note in many of my discussion in the Comments section other examples were brought up, but I didn't add them to the list or any such changes. They were examples, despite the literal reading. As for rule #4, it was not abused. That's your personal opinion. Just because I proposed votes to be given more appropriate rationale does not make me responsible for other people agreeing and voting likewise... In the end, I'll just have to re-add the proposal and be more specific with my words.
@Tucayo: From what I remember, your first example was done within the three-day limit and no one said anything about it then or since. Don't obfuscate what really happened. Redstar 22:06, 14 December 2009 (EST)

Second was, enough reason. End of the discussion. TucayoSig.png Thanks for your time.

Example proposal

Wouldn't it be helpful to new users if there were an example proposal near the top of the page(like the example image on Mariowiki:Featured Images)? That way, people who don't understand how to make proposals can copy and paste it under the section that they want and add their idea for a proposal. That would seem like a helpful thing... Fawfulfury65

Can't they just copy and paste an already existing Proposal? I did so the first time I made one, it wasn't that hard... Let's see what the others say. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 16:56, 28 December 2009 (EST)
It does work if you just copy and paste it, but then you have to delete all the comments and votes and it gets confusing... at least for me. It would be easier with a blank proposal to be set up so you don't have to do all the deleting... Fawfulfury65

Talk Page Proposals

I found a possible flaw of our new Merge Proposal system. Look here. The Proposal decided that the page should be deleted, but that means the talk page has to go with it. The Proposal however, is on said talk page. By deleting this page, I'd destroy archive material documenting what originally led to this decision. Any suggestions? - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 23:56, 15 January 2010 (EST)

I think TPPs should be about splits and merges only. This would solve that problem and almost any other one that would pop up. Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D
Per MG1. · SMB (Talk) · 00:27, 16 January 2010 (EST)
Not really a flaw, since that proposal's intention was only to cover splits and merges. Deletions were never under the scope of that movement. Redstar 04:41, 16 January 2010 (EST)
Could there possibly be an archives page for those kinds of talkpage proposals? Fawfulfury65

Maybe the deleted article's talk page (and the proposal hosted there) can just be left in existence. One of the benefits of Talk Page Proposals is that the decisions made about a page will always be sitting on that page's talk page, as opposed to being buried within the general proposal archives. Someone who may want to re-create the Mario's Shirt page, for example, probably won't know to go digging through the proposal archives to make sure we didn't already create and destroy the article; they'll just see that we don't have the page and create it.

However, if they see we don't have the page but that we do have a discussion page saying why we don't, it will save them the trouble of writing a new article in vain. It's like how a redirect page created by a merge keeps its talk page, and really, I don't see much of a difference between merging and deleting single pages anyway. In both cases, relevant information is not being lost; it's simply more obvious in merges because any pertinent info us being moved directly onto another page, whereas with deletions, the info is spread out amongst many different articles.

I'm sure every piece of information on Mario's Shirt could be found elsewhere in the wiki even before the page was deleted, which is one of the main reasons single pages get the axe - they're superfluous from the start: they either do nothing but parrot information we already talk about elsewhere, concern info that we don't cover under our current standards, and/or are too short to be worthwhile anyway.

Every day, pages like these are created by well-meaning users and deleted by administrators using their more learned discretion; the only difference with something like Mario's Shirt is because it's been around on the wiki longer, has enough information to not be a stub, and is about Mario (if it were Wario's Shirt, for example, it'd get the ax without any song or dance). If the Mario's Shirt page had been expanded to discuss how we deal with clothing in general, it should have definitely gone on the proposals page because that means it's dealing with an overall coverage policy and thus effects multiple pages; as it was, it concerned one page, and I think it was appropriate to hold the discussion on that one talk page.

As for archiving Talk Page Proposals in general, Bloc Partier didn't address the issue when he proposed the new system, and I was never sure how to approach the matter myself, especially because there was talk of a new proposal archiving system at the same time that we were implementing the Talk Page Proposals. As a result, I left the archiving matter for another day (and then got extremely busy with school, preventing me from re-visiting the issue in a timely manner - sorry about that).

Now I'm thinking that the passed Talk Page Proposals should just be left on the talk pages (for the reasons I mentioned above concerning the Mario's Shirt proposal's resting place; for another example, see the current debate on Talk:Pauline's Items). Ideally, any past proposals dealing with single pages would also get moved to the appropriate talk pages to make things consistent. - Walkazo (talk)

I fully agree with you. No user checks the proposal archives before they write articles. By keeping all the discussions over an article on its talk page, people get a much better overview and we can prevent recreations in the future. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:58, 11 February 2010 (EST)

What happened to the proposal page?

I am slightly confused. What happened to the proposal system while I was away? It appears to me like a new page to me. Rule 2 was completely rewritten, the clock that was usually found on this page has vanished without a trace, along with the part that tells you the right deadline times depending on the day of the week. A relatively simple process has become bulky and mazy. I know I'm one to get confused pretty easily, but I think this new complexity isn't too appealing to newcomers as well.

I would have expected this kind of experience if I had been away for several months, but I only was away for a little longer than a week probably. So, what happened here? - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 18:11, 4 March 2010 (EST)

The only differences that I can think of is the new rule where you are not allowed to vote on a proposal until about 24 hours after it was posted. This allows users to discuss the proposal in the comments section before actually voting. There are also new FA rules. Fawfulfury65

Looks like I chose a bad time to go away. >_> Thanks for explaining. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 18:27, 4 March 2010 (EST)

Edo: There are three major differences, as far as I am concerned. One was by Cobold and two by me, IIRC. Cobold's suggested there be 24 hours between beginning voting on a proposal from the time it was proposed. The two I made were actually to simplify the process. Firstly, all wiki official times are now in GMT. This is for consistency and less confusion, as some pages on the wiki said EDT while others said EST. The other one I made was so that proposals ended at the end of the day one week after the day voting begins; previously, if the proposal was proposed on a Friday, it would end at 2:00 a.m. 9 days later, while on other days it was 11:00 p.m. 8 days later, which was just confusing, so now it's 11:59 p.m. 7 days from the beginning of voting, regardless of the day of the week. Sorry for the confusion it might have caused. --Marcelagus (TCE)

Rule Number 5 (TPP)

We have this argument over rule number 5. (Brown Yoshi TTP is the best example) People have been extending the date for proposals that have less than a majority of 3 votes, following rule 8. I think so that we should get rid of rule 5. KS3 (talk)

Good call: there certainly is no point in a rule that no one follows, and the normal Rules 7 and 8 cover the issue just fine, I think... - Walkazo 20:02, 26 March 2010 (EDT)

Slight confusion

Ok, I have a question about the most recent archived proposal, the one about splitting the SMA articles. So, from what I've heard in the comments of this proposal, we are going to create 9 new articles, including the three GBA remakes of the DKC games. However, that does not make sense, as the proposer only proposed to split the SMA articles:

Ok, we seriously need to unmerge the "Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World" and "Super Mario World" articles, as well as the "Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3" articles. First of all, there is plenty of room on this wiki to create a couple new articles to accommodate these SEPARATE games. Second of all, it creates the illusion (or disillusion) to Mario Wiki readers that these are the same games, just different ports. They are NOT the same game! Let's take the former, for instance. The GBA ramake has more levels, updated graphics, play as Luigi, et cetera the list goes on and any honest person knows what it is. The latter, among the updated graphics, how about all those new E-Reader levels? They are not the same game and should not be merged together like that. Why not merge "Super Mario 64" and "Super Mario 64 DS" together then? The status quo with the GBA and NES/SNES games is just as stupid, if not more stupid. A remake isn't the same game. "Super Mario Bros. Deluxe" is NOT "Super Mario Bros.", people! It's NOT the real game! Third of all, tons of younger gamers who were were either pooping themselves or not ever born yet when the original games came out were introduced to the games through these remakes and they deserve articles to read about the games that they were introduced to. I'm not saying the GBA games were bad. I think they were brilliant. Putting nostalgia aside, in all honesty I think they are BETTER than the originals. But they are not the same games! They're different! They need their own articles!

There is nothing here that talks about splitting the DKC games from their remakes. So basically, are we going to create 9 new articles or not?

Fawfulfury65

They agreed in the comments to split all nine articles. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Shouldn't something like that be in a proposal, and not in the comments section. I know I don't agree to split them all! Fawfulfury65
They discussed it, and they're doing it. It's too late now. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Wait a minute, I looked through the comments section and nobody ever said that they were officially going to split the DKC articles. I did dig out this, though:

Grandy, to answer your question, this proposal's passage will not affect any DKC games. There are not as many differences in those, I think they are more just handheld ports. However, if someone sometime in the future decided it would be best for the wiki that those DKC games get their own articles, I would read the proposal and all the arguments for and against in the comments section, and then ponder my decision, and then, based on which decision I feel is best for the wiki, vote based on that decision. But DKC games are irrelevant. Focus on the issue at hand. Just as SM64DS is different enough to merit its own article, so do these games, as you are aware from what are have said, differ even more rigorously.

As you can see, the proposer said it will not affect any of the DKC articles.

Fawfulfury65

The proposer originally said that, but later Marwikedor also accepted the other games ("These 9 new articles this proposal will create will be some of the wikis finest!"). Creating four new articles on remakes but ignoring the rest won't work. --Grandy02 10:26, 28 March 2010 (EDT)
But still: Only the points mentioned in the Proposal text itself need to be put into practice after the proposal passed. Everything else only mentioned in the comments section is more "informal". Time Questions 10:28, 28 March 2010 (EDT)
So that means that we shouldn't split the DKC articles, right? Fawfulfury65
From my point of view, yes. That is, we are not "forced" by the proposal to split the DKC articles, but it's not the case that it bans us from doing it either. Time Questions 05:50, 29 March 2010 (EDT)
Well, anyway, I guess we'll just have to see what happens. Perhaps a proposal can come up about this sometime. Fawfulfury65

Sometimes when I try to vote (or comment) on a talk page proposal, I click the little edit link next to the section, only to find myself landing at the page to edit the section above it. Sometimes I can get around this by using the link for the whole section, but that will show votes and comments that didn't show up on the page for me. Is there something I'm doing wrong here? It doesn't happen on every page, and I can't figure out what's special about the pages it does happen on. --Turkishcoffee 11:57, 11 April 2010 (EDT)

No Banjo and Conker

You know about Banjo & Conker, people especially me don't feel like Banjo and Conker should have a place on a Mario Wiki. They are not recurring characters like Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Wario. They had only one appearance in a Mario game. Sonic the Hedgehog who is the mascot of Nintendo's former rival Sega had more appearances in a Mario game than Banjo and Conker. Sonic competed in the Beijing and Vancouver Olympics and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He also made cameos when Nintendo was trying to humiliate Sega. The characters from Super Smash Bros. for the N64 have made appearances in all 3 Super Smash Bros. series games, making more appearances then Banjo and Conker. Super Mario Wiki should not cover Banjo and Conker since their relation to Mario are very small. Since they are owned by Microsoft, who is competing with Nintendo, it is unlikely that they will ever appear again in a Mario game. SeanWheeler 21:17, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

See MarioWiki:Coverage. Pikmins.jpg' BluePikminKong497 21:21, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I know about the MarioWiki:Coverage. The problem is that Banjo and Conker are on it. Marth and Roy were introduced in Super Smash Bros. Melee before Fire Emblem came out in North America, and we don't cover Fire Emblem. Having Banjo and Conker is like having Pikachu on Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki. If I want to know about Banjo and Conker, I would look at thier wikis. Tiny Kong and Dixie Kong replaced Banjo and Conker in Diddy Kong Racing DS. Talking about Banjo-Kazooiee and Conker's Bad Fur Day violates another policy where we can't talk about Non-Mario stuff outside of crossovers. Banjo and Conker were only in Diddy Kong Racing as advertisements for their games. SeanWheeler 22:10, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Sorry. Pikmins.jpg' BluePikminKong497 22:13, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I'd just like to say that I disagree with you. Even if they were only in the game to be advertised, they are in the game. It wasn't some sort of crossover game like the SSB games are, it was a full-fledged Donkey Kong game, which is one of the series we cover here at the SMW. I personally feel we should have full coverage on Banjo and Conker, but I know that would never happen anytime soon. Having more coverage than less is better, in my opinion: it ensures we won't miss something. · SMB (Talk) · 22:33, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

How is S&M at og and ssbb a mario game? Its a nintendo game and if you want to argue Ssbb is more a mario game, you'd be wrong. Its more a Kirby game than anything. Booderdash (talk)

Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Wario, and Yoshi are all in Brawl. Some of the stuff in Brawl hails from Mario. Being a crossover, it also has stuff from Kirby, Star Fox, Pokémon, Sonic the Hedgehog, Metal Gear, Earthbound, Kid Icarous, The Legend of Zelda, Pikmin, F-Zero and much more so it is a game in all of those series.

New proposal

Hi, this is my first time suggesting a proposal, so forgive me if I screw something up.

My proposal is this: the "Super Guide" function has now, to my knowledge, appeared in four games: New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, and Donkey Kong Country Returns. It doesn't look like Nintendo is getting ready to stop using this new feature, so I propose we make a "Super Guide" article that will encompass all of the analogous features that count as a "Super Guide" between the Mario series games, with a section for each game, with possible subsections for distinctly different things with similar features in other games (i.e. the Super Play videos and Super Guide Block in NSMBW and the Tip Network and Cosmic Spirit in SMG2, respectively).

Again, sorry if I've gone about this wrong, but I thought it'd be better if I was a little more professional and made a proposal here instead of on a talk page for, say, one of the Super Guide features, since this proposal involves several articles. Teamrocketspy621 02:57, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

New Proposal

You know, in Talk:Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr./Mario Bros., me and some other people were discussing about deleting the article Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr./Mario Bros. because we felt like we didn't have to make compilation articles on the wiki. Should this be a proposal, or not a proposal. If you say yes, I will add the {{Delete}} template on Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr./Mario Bros. because I already added the {{delete-request}} template on it.

New Talk Page Proposal

Hey guys. I have a talk page proposal. Here is the summary. I am not putting it on the proposal's page yet, but if it has to be moved, I will move it there.

I have noticed that talk page messages are basically the only edits in the Recent Changes. I now have a rule that will restrict the amount of talk edits you may have. Like user, if you have over 30% of your edits on talk pages, with the exception of users with under 250 edits total, your talk page will be protected and you will be warned by an administrator to not leave messages on other user's talk pages. First offense will result in a one hour block. Next offense one day. Third offense one week. Any further shall be decided by administration. This is so there will be more main edits. I myself have lots of talk edits, and I am trying to edit the mainspace more. If you all agree, please say yes or no. Thank you. Yoshi's egg is hatching. And hatching! 16:52, 30 April 2011 (EDT)

i c wut u did there. Anyways, ya, it should go onto the proposals page if you want to make it an official proposal. You want someone else to move it there or are you comfortable doing it yourself? Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :DMarioguy1 (Talk | Contribs) Hey there! I'm Marioguy1 :D

Automatic signing

Could it be possible to make an automatic signing feature on talk pages? I think signing is a hassle.It gets really annoying and im sure im not the only one who thinks so. yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Well, if you're on a talk page, all you have to do is use ~~~ or ~~~~ if you have a signature. If you're just doing {{User|Username}}, and it's really that much of an issue for you, just put the coding in a Word document and copy/paste it whenever you have to sign your comment. Mario4Ever

Reggie

We have articles on Shigeru Miyamoto, Satoru Iwata, Gunpei Yokoi, Takashi Tezuka, Hiroshi Yamauchi, Koji Kondo, and other Nintendo employees. Why not Reggie? If we need a proposal, would it be a mainspace proposal or a TPP? Mario4Ever 18:29, 12 June 2011 (EDT)

Hm, we've had one before and upon further investigation, it was deleted. Three times. The Electric Fence porposal was run through as a main space proposal if I remember correctly. NSMBW Mario and Yoshi Jumping Artwork.pngXzelionETC
I take it that it wouldn't be a good idea to propose it, then, if it was deleted three times? Mario4Ever
A lot of things have changed since 2009 (when it was deleted), and the third time it was deleted, it was just because it was a new stub. As long as it's not a stub, I don't think anyone would try to get it deleted again, so I don't think the proposal is even necessary. Imo, proposals should be used for these sorts of "minor" changes when there's a reasonable chance that a lot of the community will be against it, but otherwise, it's not a necessity. (But obviously, major changes should get proposals no matter what.) - Walkazo 12:16, 13 June 2011 (EDT)
I see, but I think I'll just let the proposal carry out, just in the off-chance there's some sort of objection. It's just a precaution, and I apologize if a proposal is unnecessary. I personally don't think there's going to be a problem, but then again, I don't speak for everyone. In any case, this gives me time to sort of plan out how this gets done (not that I'm the only one capable of doing this, but it is something I want to do), as the last thing we need is a Wikipedia clone or a stub. Mario4Ever 16:23, 13 June 2011 (EDT)

Voting Easier

Why can't voting for a proposal be as easy as the community poll when you vote because I don't even know how to vote on a proposal it might need to be improved.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jjrapper100 (talk).

See this proposal. Mario4Ever
The first couple sections of the page explain how to vote, and you can also see what other people do and copy them. Basically, you just have to edit the appropriate section (say you support a proposal, you go to that proposal's section and edit the sub-section marked "Support") and add your name to list of the other supporters by typing #{{User|YOU}} - REASON, with the "reason" being why you support the proposal, which can be as simple as saying "I agree with this proposal" (or, "per proposal", if you want to use lingo). And finally, to answer your question about why you have to do all this... The point of the proposals is to really think about your decision, and many people have some sort of opinion to add as their reason for voting, which is why it has to be done by editing, rather than an anonymous push of a button like the community polls. - Walkazo 23:08, 9 July 2011 (EDT)

Proposal Archives

Sometimes, I have trouble referring for certain proposals in the archive because, in short of guesswork, they are difficult to find. Do you think it's a good idea to reorganize the archive page? Maybe we can reorganize the main archive page by subpages such as MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive/Changes, MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive/Removals, and MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive/New Features. The more recently archived proposals can go by subsections until they are moved to the subpages. I don't like alphabetically because your recall of the proposal may be inaccurate (is it "delete" or "remove"?), so that's more guesswork. I'm open to suggestions, but I think the way we store archives needs a little work.
Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:08, 7 May 2013 (EDT)

We had a project a couple of years ago which I thought would be the solution to this, but it was never implemented. You may want to look into it to get some ideas. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 20:29, 7 May 2013 (EDT)
There was more recent (last year, maybe?) talk amongst the admins of setting up a system like RAP's, only instead of hundreds of subpages (waste of space and a pain to skim through), we'd keep the current 20-proposals-per subpage system and just add a directory page with the colour-coded tables (or multiple directories, but I think one is better; the exact coding we agreed on that time might be modified from RAP's, too). Knife was sorta in charge of it, iirc. Anyway, I still feel like that would be the best system; it'd still be by date, but then you could ctrl-f on the directory to find what you want (rather than guessing which archive to start on and then searching page by page), and the colour-coding means you don't need to go to the archive to see the result. I'll try to dig up more information on that latest discussion after work tomorrow. - Walkazo 22:30, 7 May 2013 (EDT)
I can help look for that if you want. So far, I've found several references to it scattered across two or three threads, but I haven't found the discussion itself (at least, not the one more recent than the one from 2009, which I don't think is the one we want). Mario4Ever 22:47, 7 May 2013 (EDT)
Here?
¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 22:51, 7 May 2013 (EDT)
Oooh, yes! Thank you! That's the last time the discussion was revived; this post, a bit further along, is a good overview of the basics of what we agreed on in December. For non-admins who cant see the threads, basically the idea is to replace MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive with a directory that looks like this draft, but with a legend (rather than it only being present as a chart on the page for the template being used in the tables) and a variation on the bottom header template as the navbox (no "current" link and colours consistent with the current template (which will still be used on all the numbered archives; only the directory gets the banner navbox)). New proposals would simply go straight onto a numbered archive subpage, with a new one being created and the old one locked once it hits 20 (rather than the moving stuff we do now). It's a lovely system, and I still think we should use it (the only reason we didn't implement it back in 2011/12 was because of time constraints or something). We could potentially even add another colour to the mix (I vote grey) to indicate passed proposals whose changes haven't been made yet (reflecting the points made in the recent proposal about TPP archiving about awareness and getting things done and whatnot). - Walkazo 19:49, 8 May 2013 (EDT)

That sounds like a great idea. I want to see this system implemented. It's a lot easier to go through directories than to click on many, many links to find a certain proposal. Besides, the layout looks cleaner than showing just a bunch of links to later proposals. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:02, 8 May 2013 (EDT)

I'm just wondering... do we have any plans to implement something like this? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 19:23, 9 May 2013 (EDT)

Oh goodness! I'm actually glad people are still talking about this and not just shoving the poor thing to the back end of the wiki's foundation. I somehow abandoned this project because there are so many proposals to look over, categorize, summarize titles and all that. Worse is that there are some proposals that you guys didn't archive at all. I think it's also because Knife (talk) wasn't around for very long due to work, further justifying my abandonment and working on NIWA and my Nintendo Wiki instead. I'm back and I'm considering on taking on NIWA, my Nintendo Wiki, and Mario Wiki at the same time.

So, to try and reduce the chances from me blowing my brains, I need some additional help on further refining the process and adding new things. People that have a stake in participating in proposals definitely qualifies. The stuff I'm going to say will complicate the process by a lot. The big one will be timestamps. That's right, every edit made during that proposal scenario discussion thingy. Get a nice observation on the details on the actions users made, whether it is proposing, voting, commenting (read: arguing), or attempting to game the system.

To see how the stuff goes, check my test page here: User:RAP/test4 (crossed out because I failed to read the whole discussion up there)

Wait, you guys actually did it without me? Can I see how much progress you guys made in implementing this like my attempt? --RAP.pngRAP... 01:08, 11 May 2013 (EDT)

This is the draft of what we/Knife did so far. We decided against making every proposal a subpage, as was the original idea back when you were involved, because that's way to much work and the current system is fine except for the problem of finding stuff. That's where the directory idea comes in - i.e. the big stacks of tables, like in your "test4/20XX" sub-subpages (only we'd only have one page divided into sections, rather than different subpages for different years: centralization is better). As you can see in the draft, Knife's done the table for 2007, 2008 and part of 2009, but the rest of 2009-2010 need to be converted from your table coding to the new one, and everything beyond that needs to be done completely. - Walkazo 17:41, 11 May 2013 (EDT)
I kinda forgot what I was going to say (because I need sleep now) but it involved attempting to justify my movement for users creating proposals in a separate page and not edit in MarioWiki:Proposals any longer and easier to track edits and easier to archive, and that loads less bytes. In the end, I favor you and Knife's direction of archiving maybe just because of that very convenience and having it all together. But the searching? Can't you use a search engine for that? Anyway; Walkazo, can you bring yourself and Knife to the table and start off the collaboration together? Gotta finish this off after this thing being lost in time for over 2 years. --RAP.pngRAP... 06:10, 12 May 2013 (EDT)

The new system has been launched. I've also made a Wiki Collab thread for it. - Walkazo 12:38, 13 May 2013 (EDT)

Proposals

Just wondering, why isn't the text above the list of proposals (that shows the rules and instructions) a separate template? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 18:40, 29 May 2013 (EDT)

Good point. There was no reason why, it was simply just never moved to a separate page... but it's been moved now. Thanks for bringing it up! - Walkazo 20:51, 30 May 2013 (EDT)
Are we dumping the rules in a separate page simply to make the editing process more easy? Time Turner (talk)
Yeah, now you can just dive straight into the proposals, without all that clutter up top; it looks neater too. This also keeps the rules and how-to stuff more secure, and them being off on their own with a separate history from the high-traffic MW:Proposals page will make it easier to keep track of any changes that do happen. - Walkazo 21:05, 30 May 2013 (EDT)

Videos in Articles

Hey guys, I just had a suggestion. I think one way we can improve this wiki is by adding videos to articles about a specific game. We can have anyone take a gameplay video, so that when someone is looking up an article about a specific game, they can see how the gameplay is like. I don't know if you guys will think this is a good idea or not, but I figured, if we have a section where you can listen to a sample of the music, then there should be a section where you can watch a short gameplay. Hope you like the idea. --Luigidaisy1 (talk) 17:16, 19 June 2014 (EDT)

Toadbrigade5 (talk) 23:13, 8 November 2014 (EST)

Formatting. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Replacing Deadline with "Passed"

When proposals are decided, we are supposed to currently replace the deadline with "passed." However, the word "passed" seems to falsely imply that the proposal has been successful and gotten more supportive votes, when it may in fact have not. I think we should have a slight rule change and replace the word "passed" with something less confusing, such as "Passed/Failed" or "Decided." Andymii (talk) 18:58, 13 January 2015 (EST)

No, only when TPPs pass is the deadline replaced by "Passed": if they fail, they're just removed from the list. And when passed TPPs are enacted, they're also removed, since attention no longer needs to be drawn to them. - Walkazo 22:35, 13 January 2015 (EST)

Okay, thanks. Andymii (talk) 07:35, 14 January 2015 (EST)

New question: shouldn't we add a date when the proposal has passed so we have an idea how long it is remaining there without action being taken? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:21, 7 February 2015 (EST)

I think it stands out more when it's just the boldface "passed" with no date. Ideally, stuff doesn't sit around for long: whoever made the TPP is supposed to enact it themselves in a timely fashion, just like a regular proposal, and usually the subjects are minor enough to be taken care of relatively painlessly. - Walkazo 18:43, 7 February 2015 (EST)

Why can you only extend proposals up the three times?

If the proposal is still tied after 4-5 weeks, apparently it automatically fails (rule 11). However, I honestly feel like this cheats the proposer. Why would you every want to a proposal that is being heavily debated on? The only reason this rule should ever be implemented is that if there is a complete lack of voters. Maybe we could change the rule instead to "if a proposal has been extended three times and has 5 votes or less, then it automatically fails." Andymii (talk) 14:07, 18 January 2015 (EST)

If it's going on and on and on like that, there's clearly something wrong with the idea, and it'd be in the proposer's best interest (and the wiki's too, seeing as the community's clearly divided on the issue) is to go back and retool and relaunch the proposal in a new version more palatable to a larger chunk of the voters. Plus, it ensures things actually happen, instead of just getting deadlocked forever. - Walkazo 14:31, 18 January 2015 (EST)

Okay. Andymii (talk)

Please leave your opinions below; I have spoken to my many contacts and they are mostly in agreement that my proposal is an extremely wise one. --I love selfies (talk) 19:24, 21 March 2015 (EDT)

Hello, I am planning on making a proposal. However, I am very inexperienced and have never made one. I wanted to know exactly where I make my proposal. I am also worried about a simple typo making my whole proposal go out of whack. I have read the rules over many times but I still would like a step by step help from anyone to make sure I do not make a mistake. If anyone could help me that would be great. Thenintendostooge (talk) 11:50 June 7, 2015

The directions are on the proposals page. Where you should put a proposal is on the talk page that it's based on. The deadline would be 7 days after you created it. ShyGuy8 (talk|contribs) MP9 Shy Guy Artwork.png 11:53, 7 June 2015 (EDT)

If it affects multiple pages, however, the proposal should go on this page, not a talk page; if it's a change, put it in the "Changes" section, if it's a removal, put it in the "removals" section, etc. The "Basic proposal and Support/Oppose format" section has an you can copy directly, then just substitute in the proper dates, names and add the body text; you can also copy an existing proposal. It's not rocket science. If there are minor formatting mistakes, someone else will correct them, and if there are typos, it won't invalidate the proposal as long as it's still clear what you are proposing. - Walkazo 12:22, 7 June 2015 (EDT)

New voting system

Is there any way to change the voting system? I made a proposal about this, but deleted it about 20 mins later after realizing a better way to do it. I was thinking about two sections- one for supportive reasons, and one for against reasons. After the set deadline, a team of users officially in the 'Proposal' team would decide the verdict.

Any feedback? UserPyroGuy.png (T · C) 13:31, 21 June 2015 (EDT)

No. In fact, I just veto'd a proposal trying to force an even more minor change through. The system has worked perfectly fine for over 9 years, and the rules we have now are as robust as they're gonna get: people like to moan and complain, but it's the best way to take the community's opinions into account. A "proposal team" is not democratic or efficient (if anything, it's ensuring that decisions are made be a select few users), and like it or not, "per" votes are legitimate and they and the popular vote system will never be scrapped. There's no way to prevent people from potentially voting without being fully informed, but most people do put thought into it, even if it's just deciding on who to "per", and there's no point gutting the system over the fact that the occasional stupid kid farts out a hollow vote or two. - Walkazo 13:34, 21 June 2015 (EDT)
My comment on how the "voting system is flawed" is perhaps taken too literally. I was thinking about the whole quote about "[...]it has been said that democ­racy is the worst form of Gov­ern­ment except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…" I mean, yeah, of course the proposal system we have right now has its own set of problems, but I feel it's running swimmingly. It is difficult to tell the motives of a "per" vote, but disallowing them would just have the brainless regurgitate points made by the bandwagon. There should not be a proposal team, by the way. Power abuse is not common at all (the beta-renaming veto is the only one where I'd call power abuse), but I do worry about relegating an outcome of all proposals to a mere handful. Proposals are not the best means of having a valid discussion due to the emphasis on the voting rather than the discussion, but they are more efficient that just discussion. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 13:56, 21 June 2015 (EDT)
Thanks. (Not being sarcastic, I was just wondering if it could be possible.) Both of you are right- my proposal, on hindsight, was way too negative and biased, and all I thought was that it would be nice to have a group of "professionals" doing the deciding, other than what I thought could be a potential herd of sheep (In the way that they follow a majority to make it even bigger, not in the way that they're ugly or something). Also, on hindsight, a voting system would be better and more efficient. UserPyroGuy.png (T · C) 14:07, 21 June 2015 (EDT)
As long as people see our votes (especially votes made by staff members), there's always going to be a bandwagon issue rather than critical thinking. Even I am also more inclined to side with the majority and staff members just because that's what it is. I'm not denying that the voting system is perfect, but it's difficult to come up with something even better than this. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 14:26, 21 June 2015 (EDT)

One of the motivations behind me joining way back when was so that I could comment and vote in proposals - maybe it'll encourage others to join too. I know I've had this discussion before, because I'm pretty sure it's been pointed out elsewhere that there's a disagreement between the rule and the protection, but nothing came of it then because I don't think I got any other admin feedback on what to do? I dunno, I'll see if I can find the old discussion; pretty sure it's on the forum, tho, which is always a crap-shoot as far as searches go... - Walkazo 15:03, 21 June 2015 (EDT)
Well, I suggest we just reword it if it's going to be semi-protected so BoNs at least won't be confused about it if they try contributing and can't. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:05, 21 June 2015 (EDT)

Yeah, you need to be autoconfirmed before you can edit the page, currently (the linked-to page explains more: basically just make more than five edits and stick around for more than four days and you're good to go for editing this and any other semi-protected pages, like Bowser and other high-traffic/high-profile articles). - Walkazo 15:26, 21 June 2015 (EDT)
The page is staying semiprotected until further notice and the rule's been updated accordingly; sorry it took so long. - Walkazo 18:48, 2 July 2015 (EDT)

Majority question

If a proposal with two options is currently winning/losing 2-1 (or 3-0) when we reach the deadline, does it have to be extended?

In my last proposal (changing proposal rules), it's said that problems arise if proposals pass by only one vote.

ROBSSB4.pngRemembered Old BuddyROBSSB4EN.png

No. Try reading Rule 10 again: "If a proposal has more than ten votes, it can only pass or fail by a margin of three votes". - Walkazo 15:14, 25 June 2015 (EDT)

I did read it, but then I must have thought that it applied to all proposals.

Thanks for the response though

ROBSSB4.pngRemembered Old BuddyROBSSB4EN.png

Weird vote result cases

according to the proposal rules, 3-0 proposals fail while 3-1 and 3-2 proposals pass even though the ones that pass in this case have more oppose votes than the ones that fail while having the same number of support votes. I think a special case exception should be put into place here.

also, 5-4 proposals pass while 6-4 proposals fail according to these rules which also is weird because the one that passes in this case has fewer support votes, yet has the same number of oppose votes as the proposal that fails. Once again, I think we should have a special case exception here.

3D Player 2010 21:14, 4 August 2015 (EDT)

No, exceptions needlessly complicate things. The hope is that these situations won't come up often, and they probably won't, but either way, it's not worth making the policies as a whole both clunky and flimsy (since once there's one exception, that opens the door to more, or at least to more needless discussion). - Walkazo 17:20, 6 August 2015 (EDT)

I am sorry but Super Mario World 2 Yoshi's Island is a Mario game too. Shigeru said so in an interview. Its labeled with a '2' in the game's title. Mario is in the game as a focal point of it.

Comic Sans: yea or nay?

I'm sure most people are familiar with the reputation that surrounds the font known as Comic Sans, and if you don't, here's a neat article on the subject. Currently, we're using Comic Sans in our proposal archives, and perhaps it should be changed to something else. The massive hate surrounding a harmless typeface is really silly, but there's an inkling of truth behind it. Comic Sans is definitely meant to be used for casual and lighthearted situations, and not for more official and serious writing. Not that the wiki is supposed to be super stuffy, but there's a reason the wiki uses Arial for the articles. Arial is neat, presentable, and clean, while Comic Sans is not. With that said, it's ultimately harmless. It's just a matter of what we want our decorum to be, and that's what this discussion is for. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

I'd support changing it to either Arial or Verdana, since both fonts are common to Windows, Mac, Linux, and mobile devices, whereas Comic Sans isn't. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 15:06, 18 December 2015 (EST)
I propose that we change it for Verdana , it will allow to be able to distinguish between the text of the Wiki and a serious and professional message. Something that Comic Sans is not. I am indifferent to the choice between the two and it does not bother me that one of the two is selected, but I have a preference for Verdana.--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 15:16, 18 December 2015 (EST)
Verdana sounds good to me, although I just removed font family all together since it's already easy to distinguish it from normal text, thanks to its large size, boldness, all-caps, and in gray/green/red. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:28, 18 December 2015 (EST)
Yeah, I had been questioning why we are using Comic Sans for proposal outcomes. Why can't we just use the normal wiki font in the first place? Pretty sure big and colored get the point across, not the fact that it's used in a format that's meant to be childish or playful. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:47, 18 December 2015 (EST)
If we are to change the font to something that isn't the standard font, then Times New Roman is preferable. Otherwise, I agree with BLOF. PidgeyIcon.pngRandomYoshi(TalkPMsC) 15:51, 18 December 2015 (EST)
That's a resounding "nay" for Comic Sans, then. Now we have to decide what it'll be replaced with. I've thrown all of the fonts here for easy comparison, and now we can have an informal vote on which one we should go with. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
I Vote for Verdana.--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 16:00, 18 December 2015 (EST)
I vote for no change in font (meaning just leave it normal wiki font, it would also maximize compatibility, especially with custom CSS's). BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:01, 18 December 2015 (EST)
Times New Roman looks garish and unfitting. I'd go with either Arial or Verdana, although if I have to choose between the two, I'd go with Verdana. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 16:03, 18 December 2015 (EST)
Verdana, definitely. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:04, 18 December 2015 (EST)

I don't get the massive hate-on the world has for comic sans (nor any font philosophies, really). I certainly don't think that using it here for the one-liner proposal rulings makes them seem unserious or unprofessional at all, nor hard to read since they're large, short and isolated. On the contrary, I feel like having such a radically different font from the body text helps the rulings stand out far more than they would if we used Verdana or some other barely-different-than-Arial font: might as well just use the default Arial font itself, but I actually disagree that the size, bolding and colours is good enough uniqueness. Rulings should jump out ("pow"): Comic sans does that great, so let it keep doing that. Proposals may be srsbsns, but the font choice need not be part of it - it's just a font; indeed, some font-conscious folks might even like the juxtaposition and think the tiny hint of levity's fitting for a Super Mario Wiki - i.e. not taking ourselves too seriously, which people tend to ridicule more often than not. And on the other hand, despite our "kid's stuff" subject, this is a well-formatted, professional wiki with good content and procedures: if people seriously have beef with what font we use for single lines of text, they need to chill out and look at the big picture. But no one has complained for 8 and a half years, so what's the problem? I really think the arguments here are too weak to justify tearing up over a thousand proposals and TPPs. It's be a waste of time for a trifling reason. - Walkazo 16:24, 18 December 2015 (EST)

Yep. How the hell are we going to change every single ruling to a different font? Just leave it as it is. UserPyroGuy.png (T · C) 16:32, 18 December 2015 (EST)
Also, 6 people is NOT "resounding", 1 hour is NOT a realistic timeframe for a discussion, and an informal vote is NOT appropriate to decide on whether or not to change the basic appearance of the most pervasive and long-standing archive system of the wiki. Rash and wildly inappropriate, is more like it. - Walkazo 16:37, 18 December 2015 (EST)
I'd rather stop the trend rather than additionally go backward and change it that way. Just need to point out: not all proposal rulings are in comic sans either (some in Times New Roman), although I suppose it's a consequence of unwritten rules, and it's not something difficult to fix either. I don't see how comic sans stands out more than Verdana or Arial since the color, bold, and size change are, IMO, enough to help it stand out, especially when it's at the top like that. I think in the end, though, it's only one line of text, and more serious abuse of comic sans is entire police reports written in that font, so this isn't anywhere near that. Not sure if font-conscious folks will like our use or Comic sans or not; the explanation, frankly seems made-up-on-spot to me, and I'd think they'd raise their eyebrows at the use of comic sans. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 16:43, 18 December 2015 (EST)
The so-called "massive hate-on" for Comic Sans and "font philosophies" is nearly always a design argument, in which, yes, those arguments do have merit. Though some hate is extremely overblown (there are petitions for banning Comic Sans...are you serious), the criticisms for its overuse are entirely valid and should not be overlooked because it's a "petty" thing; all fonts have a personality and purpose, and writing proposal outcomes in what's supposed to be a format used in nonserious things (last time I've read, even though this is MarioWiki, this isn't an excuse to use the font in more serious matters). Sure, this wiki probably is well-formatted and professional, that means it's a good idea that we extend that professionalism to include altering that one-liner composed of Comic Sans; as for the argument for "yeah MarioWiki might be more kid-friendly because we use some Comic Sans in our proposals", no, I don't see it like that. I see it as hilariously out of place rather than catering towards a non-serious image. I'm not in favor of changing all the past ones (there's no point in that anyway), but I'm in completely in favor of stopping the trend and using Times New Roman for a different font. Besides, big and bold and color makes the font stand out, NOT the Comic Sans. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:56, 18 December 2015 (EST)
I'm not sure I'm following this. This seems arbitrarily minor. I can't be the only one who didn't notice at all that we used Comic Sans. In fact when TT said the proposal archives I went to the actual archives and still didn't notice it right away. That aside, it's not worth the hassle to change it throughout the wiki. I would consider this a leave-as-it rule and continue using Comic Sans (or even changing the font) because it really doesn't matter, just like the British spelling differences. Consistency doesn't matter in these minor stuff. It actually annoys me to some degree because it doesn't have a rule. So anytime someone wants to archive, he probably refers to an earlier archive to do so. Kinda makes me wish that we had a template to do this automatically. But it's futile now.--

16:58, 18 December 2015 (EST)
I don't think anyone is in favor of changing the previous fonts; what it looks like to me is that we want to stop the trend. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:09, 18 December 2015 (EST)
I'm still staunchly against changing it in the future and creating inconsistency with the archives: and while most people probably don't notice or care that one of the font's comic sans, they're far more likely to notice that there's two fonts in use, and I'm sure I won't be the only one who will find it sloppy and bad-looking. (Plus, it'll make archiving more of a hassle because now I'll need to remember to change the font when poaching coding from past TPPs; I'm willing to bet a lot of folks will also forget that stop if they use one of the 600+ existing Comic Sans TPP rulings.) I just think, why create a problem when there is none currently? Also, I didn't argue that using Comic Sans in the rulings makes the Mario Wiki more kid-friendly, nor did I contradict that our subject matter doesn't mean we should be unprofessional, seeing as I specifically said we're a well-made wiki - the point was that we need not feel obligated to be excessive in our pursuit of professionalism, and that a practically undetectable bit of personality isn't gonna hurt us except in the eyes of people who are too picky and crabby to be worth catering to anyway. When I (and I guess Megadardery, and probably lots of others too) look at the proposal rulings, I see a font that's very different from the rest of the page; I really don't care what it's called or where the font came from or what other people say it's supposed to be used for: here, it's used for differentiation, and it's effective at that, and it's not hard to read, so it's always seemed fine to me. - Walkazo 19:01, 18 December 2015 (EST)

I don't think we should change the font. Fawful's Minion (talk)

Thinking about it, I still think we should change the typeface. The current one isn't clean or intended for professional use, so it clashes with everything else. While it might seem like a bad idea to change something seemingly minor, it's also a bad argument to say that we should continue a bad practice only because we've been doing it for years, which is why we even have 600+ of this poor typeface choice. We have reversed years of bad practice before, such as the misuse of subspecies and beta elements, which were in hundreds of pages too, so why can't we standardize the text of proposal outcomes to something less kitschy and sloppy like this? The little things count. Finally, Comic Sans isn't even a web safe typeface, as Tucayo pointed out earlier, so the browser might switch to a crappy fallback font, something we definitely don't want. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:31, 17 April 2016 (EDT)

If we are going to change it, I purpose making a template instead of the manual text. It's going to make it easier in the future.--

Comic sans is awesome derp.

Which one looks better? By the way, I don't see how this needs consensus after finding out that Comic Sans isn't a web-safe font and therefore shouldn't be used at all when formatting important headers like this, as browsers without Comic Sans installed will most likely fallback on ugly tiny Times New Roman font, defeating the entire purpose of the big and eye-catching proposal outcome headers. Issues like this should be fixed, not ignored.
Oh and one more thing I love Mega's idea, this is the sort of stuff that should be in templates in the first place. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 19:03, 17 April 2016 (EDT)
Yes, Megadardery, let's do that, it's a great idea. By the way, the proposal outcome typeface isn't even consistent in the first place, since we do have some outcomes in Times New Roman lying around. If we change it now, we can make them consistent and it won't be hard for users to adjust to a new typeface. I think it's all worth it, to be honest. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 19:29, 17 April 2016 (EDT)
Actually it wouldn't fallback on ugly tiny Times New Roman font, it would fallback on a regular big default sans-serif as we accidentally demonstrated on User_talk:Megadardery/1. I'm not sure why Comic Sans is considered a not-safe font, because as far as I have seen, it is available on Mac, Windows, Android (at least mine). But eh, I don't care.--

Personally I like the font the way it is but if changeing it was my only choice, I'd choose possibly Comic Sans, Veranda, or Times etc. either way they'd look good on the wiki but I think it's better the way it is so I vote we just leave it. Fawful's Minion 20:24, 21 April 2016 (EDT)
A lot has written on how crappy Comic Sans is, from its egregious overuse, right down to its general overall design of it. It was originally designed for comical characters in Microsoft programs that spoke in a really out of place Times New Roman font in a speech bubble. Now, because it looks nice and simple, and because people are uneducated in graphic design, people use it recklessly without any regard for any design philosophies whatsoever. Would you decorate your lost dog sign with bright colors and happy objects? No, you wouldn't, and neither should people who use Comic Sans for this type of stuff.
Comic Sans does have its place and use, but certainly not for outcomes for serious wiki matters as proposals. It's fine if you decorate your talk page or your sig with it, but it has absolutely no place in official matters like proposals. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 01:46, 22 April 2016 (EDT)
