Talk:Blue Car

From the Super Mario Wiki

Merge[edit]

I think this article should be merged with Car. It'd make that article more informative. — Stooben Rooben

Cars[edit]

"Aside from color, it is virtually the same as the Red Car." If that's the case, shouldn't they just be merged?

I also don't get why we need articles for each individual vehicle since they pretty much share the same information. Shy Guy pose SMM.png Mario JC 05:56, 3 September 2017 (EDT)

I know exactly what you mean. I was just recreating them because they were faulty redirects to Car, which is now solely over the Diddy Kong Racing vehicles. Also I'm super tired. Basically, I was prepping them to do exactly that in some near-but-not-immediate time. Note my edit summary for the Bus page, which was another Car redirect: "Maybe we should merge all the Mario Kart buses in a place they won't get info removed from?"

Merge Blue Car, Yellow Car and Red Car to Car (obstacle)[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge 9-0

With this proposal passed, I think these cars should be merged into one article as well, preferably something like Car (obstacle). They have conjectural titles, serve the exact same purpose, just with different designs (even stated so in the article: "...they are virtually the same as Red Cars."), and because of this, they share near identical information. They're hardly any different from each other in that regard, so I see no point in them being separate.

Support[edit]

  1. Mario jc (talk) Like Bus, they should really all be in one article.
  2. BBQ Turtle (talk) You must have read my mind- this was going to be my next proposal! Strongly support, all these Mario Kart vehicle obstacles need fixing up. After this, I think trucks are going to need sorting, but let's get the cars sorted out first. If you'd like a hand sorting this out, I'd be happy to help.
  3. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) Again, the only reason these articles exist now is that they were once redirects to the generic car article, but when that article got repurposed, the bad redirects stayed until I changed them back after discovering bad links to the page on a German comic's page.
  4. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per proposal.
  5. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - Per all.
  6. Alex95 (talk) - Per all.
  7. Niiue (talk) Per all.
  8. Toadette the Achiever (talk) Per all.
  9. LUIGIRULES71 (talk) Uhhh. Per all.....

Comments[edit]

@BBQ Turtle Yeah, I should've known it was going to be your next one. You're welcome to enact the merge if the proposal passes, since you handled the other one. Shy Guy pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:53, 1 November 2017 (EDT)

Don't worry, it's fine. What's really important is that we get it cleaned up. If you'd like me to do it, that's fine, but if you want to do it, it's completely up to you. BBQ Turtle (talk) 12:57, 2 November 2017 (EDT)
I could do it, but then again, I don't have Mario Kart DS and can only access Double Dash and Wii on weekends.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:24, 2 November 2017 (EDT)
I think we'll probably have enough information from the existing articles, but if we need anything else, I can get information from Mario Kart DS, Wii, 7 and 8 at any time, and Double Dash!! is already covered pretty thoroughly. I'm not sure what we're going to do about Mario Kart 64 though... all I know about the cars in that game is that they share the same engine noise as Toad's Kart...

Well a certain someone might have a ROM for that while away from home...(or, yknow, YouTube.) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:52, 2 November 2017 (EDT)
Why Were They Bloody Separate anyway? LUIGIRULES71
I seriously don't know. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 06:53, 15 November 2017 (EST)
Ok... LUIGIRULES71
Because they were created many years ago, then got turned into redirects for Car, which now only covers the Diddy Kong Racing vehicles, and since they were invalid redirects, I changed them back. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 10:13, 15 November 2017 (EST)
