Talk:♥

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Why is it better to use symbols to be more exact? Geno's real name I understand, but this... :/ Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 12:48, 21 March 2009 (EDT)

Also, how do you search this with that symbol as title. Can't you a conjectural name for this at least?

This is the name used in the Instruction Booklet (as indicated in the references). On the heart page, I included a redirect to this page. You can actually go to this page by putting the symbol "♥" in the search field. Also, I am linking anything that needs to be linked to this page. -- Son of Suns (talk)
I feel we should make "Heart" a disambig page, providing links to Heart (item), HP, and this. — Stooben Rooben 15:44, 21 March 2009 (EDT)
That's a good idea. -- Son of Suns (talk)
Sweet. Any final objections from anyone? — Stooben Rooben 19:00, 21 March 2009 (EDT)

Well, does Wikipedia have any rules about using symbols as Page names?Ninja.pngNinja YoshiNinja.png

Remember, we're not Wikipedia. Geno's real name is a bunch of symbols, and if that was the only name given in the game, we would be obliged to use it as our title (as it's the official name). Likewise, I am fairly certain this subject has only been referred to as via symbol. As long as we have redirects, we should be fine. The same thing occurs with the ? Block article. -- Son of Suns (talk)

I think this should be named "♥ point(s)", just "♥" doesn't says anything at all. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

I think this article should be named "Heart Points". Just some kind of heart doesn't tell the title of the article. MP8 DryBones.pngHappy Halloween! Bone Goomba.png

Type[edit]

BTW, how do you type this? RPG Gamer. I HAVE RPG!! (talk) 13:17, 29 March 2013 (EDT)

If you have Windows 7, go to the start menu, type "character map" on the search bar, find the character, and there you go. ♦♥♪♫☻♠►▓■ Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 23:31, 29 March 2013 (EDT)

I'm on an iPad.RPG Gamer. I HAVE RPG!! (talk) 09:46, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Well, I never use Apple's products, so I don't know how to add symbols. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:47, 3 April 2013 (EDT)
You don't necessarily have to type this. Just type "heart" and it will lead you to this page BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 00:51, 3 April 2013 (EDT)

♥ or ❤[edit]

Super nitpicky, but someone just made a redirect for , so I was wondering if the manual's usage of the heart was skinny and pointy or fat and round. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:38, 5 November 2017 (EST)

The manual appears to use a shorter heart that looks more like ❤. However, the manual PDF uses an image instead of the Unicode character, so there is no way to no for sure, but it definitely looks like the ❤ (U+2764) instead of the ♥ (U+2665). --Super Mario Fan 67 (TCS) 12:20, 27 December 2017 (EST)
I like neither. It would be easier to just use heart and then use the magic word {{DISPLAYTITLE:♥}} to change the title, like on e-Reader (MediaWiki always capitalizes the first character in an article title, so that's why it is done). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 19:41, 3 January 2018 (EST)
Oh, we should do something similar for ♪Yu Ayasaki's Big Adventure!♪. Found that Special:AllPages/z. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:05, 3 January 2018 (EST)

Comparing the two variants aesthetically to determine which one to use for the article's name isn't what should be done as these both look differently across different platforms. See these Emojipedia pages: ♥️ Black Heart Suit (current) and ❤️ Heavy Black Heart (redirect).
Regarding the manual, from what I can see is that those very much use a Unicode character, not an image, and that this article's name uses the one in the manual. The current article name and redirects are thus good as they are now. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 16:00, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

I'm considering typablility of the subject when linking from elsewhere. On a standard QWERTY keyboard with number pad in numlock mode, best you can do is Alt+3, and not many people know about alt codes 0-255. Heart is immediately understandable and typable. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:35, 5 January 2018 (EST)
