MarioWiki talk:Links

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Hi. I keep the Mario series character FAQ over at GameFAQs. I'd like to link to that file, but I'm not sure where it should go on the links page. Any advice? http://spacepope4u.tripod.com/mario_characters.txt Spacepope4u 18:48, 6 July 2006 (EDT)

Does that work? --Son of Suns 19:08, 6 July 2006 (EDT)

I want to add that banner, but it doesn't go in right. Can someone add it for me? --Luigifan14 17:09, 29 July 2006 (EDT)

Mario Modding Mansion[edit]

Can someone add my forum, Mario Modding Mansion, to the affiliate links section? Our banner is already in there. Here is the link. Your link is in our sidebar and our links section. --LifeMushroom 09:50, 21 July 2015 (EST)

Article?[edit]

Are we accepting Links into the article namespace? That's why it was moved in the first place. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 22:57, 28 January 2007 (EST)

Also, Knife said that we were big enough to accept Link Exchange or else remove links. If you can set down the law for us, Steve, that'd be better. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 22:58, 28 January 2007 (EST)

I think it's fine in the article namespace. It's just supposed to be a list of other Mario sites, different from affiliates which get a button on the main page. I have no idea where link exchange falls in, but I guess as long as their links are included on that page, our link can stay on their site. I don't see why it should be limited to link exchangers only. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:17, 28 January 2007 (EST)

Super Mario Party Site[edit]

I'd like to link my site here, but I'm not sure if i'm allowed to so better ask first. I already have Mario Wiki linked in my site. Just waiting for permission. Heres a link to my site : http://www.supermariopartysite.com/

Many North American sites are removed[edit]

Most of the North American sites for older games (and even for more recent games like WarioWare: Smooth Moves) have been removed and are now just redirects to Nintendo.com (where the sites for older games are also not available anymore since the relaunch) or broken. So the respective links in this list should be removed as well, right? --Grandy02 14:21, 31 October 2008 (EDT)

Yup, broken links and redirect links shouldn't be there anymore. Knife (talk) 16:57, 31 October 2008 (EDT)

MarioWiki Page?[edit]

Shouldn't this be a MarioWiki page since it deals with alternate sites, rather than a mainspace page? — Stooben Rooben 08:54, 3 November 2008 (EST)

I fully agree, I see no reason why this page is in mainspace, it isn't about the fictional universe (only the sites it links to are) or related people/companies. It's a list of external links. --Grandy02 14:28, 14 November 2008 (EST)
It was long overdue, but I moved it. — Stooben Rooben 15:52, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Boo Mansion[edit]

I'd like to become one of MarioWiki's main affiliates, but I'm not sure if there are any requirements. There is just a link saying "add your button now" or something and links to the edit page for the affiliates template. If I can just go ahead and add it, just let me know. We are not a character specific fan site or anything of that nature, we focus on content in all areas of Mario. The url is boomansion.net and I've already linked to and added MarioWiki's button. Any feedback on this would be appreciated, thanks! BooMansion 16:10, 08 December 2009 (EST)

Thanks for your interest BooMansion, I will check you site and tell you if it meets our requirements. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:20, 8 December 2009 (EST)
Ok, checked and I think it meets all requirements. Now please contact Porplemontage (talk) and ask him if it is OK. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:28, 8 December 2009 (EST)

Removed sites[edit]

Half of these websites have ben removed I think we need to check the links and remove the links to no longer functioning sites. Just a thought--Yoshidude99 17:37, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

I'll get to it tomorrow. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 01:50, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Update[edit]

I'm presuming it's fine to remove the link to my old site (DS Ultimate) since it doesn't exist and add one of my new sites (either Nintendo 3DS Fans or Community) to affiliates to replace it, correct?

{{User:cheat-master30) 21:16, 10th January 2010 (GMT)

Correct. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:39, 10 January 2011 (EST)

Semi-protect[edit]

Should we semi-protect this page, so that no anons/new users add spam or useless links (like this? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 18:22, 24 March 2014 (EDT)

Some of these sites...[edit]

They have either moved or no longer exist, and clicking on them goes to some weird pages, something like web.archive.org. --BowserJrPaperJam.gifTriple K, Skye 21:50, 25 November 2014 (EST)

Fansites Removal[edit]

Initially, the idea behind this was to have a moderated page of known fansites and popular links used by the community, and to help fellow Mario-themed communities in forming. As it was, this section was a huge failure. There was pretty much no quality control and hardly any maintenance over the years. Many of the sites were dead, a few were flash game aggregates, a few others were long abandoned vanity projects, a bunch were ROM sites and at least one had closed down and was subsequently snatched up by a fledgling porn site. Despite a handful of attempts to rein it in, we've had people flake on upkeep and the hits just kept coming. The administrative staff feels that the section has outlived it's usefulness, particularly in light of our Fan Creations board filling the same function with more control.

If you feel that you're particular site deserves to be on this page regardless, feel free to shoot one of our Sysops a message about possible affiliation status. -- Shyghost.PNGGhost JamShyghost.PNG 02:08, 7 January 2015 (EST)

For reference, I brought up on the staff board we should maybe do some more quality control on this section since there was ton of dead links, people periodically adding virus-ridden flash reconstruction hosts and blatantly illegal rom dumps, obvious self-promotion... etc. (and I kinda resent the statement that "The administrative staff feels that the section has outlived it's usefulness" when there was barely a concensus forming grumble grumble).
I feel there is value in having a better-maintened fansite link dump, but I suppose starting with a clean slate is easier. --Glowsquid (talk) 09:15, 7 January 2015 (EST)
Per administrative discussion, the fan section will be readded, but we're going to be cleaning it up and being much more selective about what makes it on the list. If you find broken links, downed sites, non-Mario fandom sites or anything that would be generally considered inappropriate, please either make a note of this page or contact a Sysops. -- Shyghost.PNGGhost JamShyghost.PNG 17:44, 11 January 2015 (EST)

DKC Fans[edit]

This site doesn't seem to work any more, but it did have content earlier (like in 2015). What should we do about it? Remove the link? Link to Archive.org's version instead? Something else?

Cheat-master30

I think the best would be to remove it. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 19:56, 31 December 2015 (EST)

Some Minor Updates[edit]

I replaced Nintendo 3DS Community with Gaming Reinvented, because I closed down the former and have basically replaced it with the latter (may move the forum content over at some point in the future). I also fixed the Boo Mansion image button, since it was using a dead Imageshack link. This now comes from one of our affiliates (Super Luigi Bros) who in turn host a copy of the Boo Mansion affiliate button.

Add Link to page[edit]

Can I get a link to sm128c.com? I'm the webmaster of the page! I've also added a button to MarioWiki, Thanks! --Hairball (talk) 12:17, 28 August 2018 (EDT)

Looks like I got it now!

German Mario board[edit]

Can I add the German Super Mario Forum to this page? If yes, which section? Semako (talk) 18:51, 17 January 2019 (EST)
