Split Super Mario 64 (and DS) with Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World[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.

split 11-1-0
Two things:

  1. Is the Super Mario 64 ring even called a Coin Ring? I think it should be called Water Ring because it comes from a Manta and the jet stream underwater (as {{conjecture}} if no source confirming the name is found)
  2. The coin rings in SM64 operate very differently than the coin rings in 3D Land and 3D World. The SM64 coin ring gives no coins but rather air and a secret number to get a Power Star while 3D Land and 3D World give the player 5 coins.

I propose a split, but I give you two options to work with along with an oppose vote.

Move SM64 Contents Into Water Ring[edit]

  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Per proposal. Very fond of this option as it makes the most sense.
  2. Reboot (talk) Per. (Will change vote if a source confirming "Coin Ring" for SM 64)
  3. NSY (talk) Preferred choice, per all.
  4. AfternoonLight (talk) Per all!
  5. Yoshi the Space Station Manager (talk) I think this is a splitting of the two. per all.
  6. Bazooka Mario (talk) Split sounds reasonable here.
  7. Mario jc (talk) Per all.
  8. Alex95 (talk) Per all.
  9. Quizmelon (talk) Per all.
  10. Andymii (talk) Per all.
  11. Luigi 64DD (talk) Per all. The only thing that directly relates the SM64 rings to coins is that they heal Mario's health meter.

Keep Coin Ring for SM64 but Move 3D Land and 3D World Contents to a Different Page[edit]

  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Per proposal. Not fond of this option but a split should occur.

Oppose[edit]

Where is the per both option? Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 8:50, 29 September 2016 (EDT)

You can multi-vote per proposal if that is what you mean. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:32, 29 September 2016 (EDT)

SM64DS Prima pocket guide: "You have to swim through five of the rings it trails behind it [the Manta] in a row."
SM3DL Prima eGuide: "Many levels contain large golden rings called coin rings. These are typically used to mark suggested paths. Pass through a coin ring to collect five coins"
SM3DW Prima eGuide: "Step through a Gold Ring to instantly snag three Coins without having to worry about a time limit at all."

That's all the guides I can access. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 13:02, 29 September 2016 (EDT)

We got our source for the 3DS games but SM64 is vague and has no official name. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:31, 29 September 2016 (EDT)
I asked LTL, who owns the Nintendo Power SM64 guide, and in short, the guide uses "ring" and "bubble ring" interchangeably. Perhaps "Bubble Ring" could be used as a name? Hello, I'm Time Turner. 18:30, 1 October 2016 (EDT)

"Manta Ring" is not the best name for these rings. In Dire, Dire Docks, a jet stream spews out several of these rings. It would be better to call these "Water Rings" and use {{about}} template to help readers guide to the appropriate ring. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 14:17, 29 September 2016 (EDT)

I was thinking that as well. I agree. Makes sense. I'll make the change. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:31, 29 September 2016 (EDT)

I never thought the 64/DS one was called a Coin Ring. Since it doesn't give any coins, I thought it was a given... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:19, 30 September 2016 (EDT)

What's funny was that right at the article's creation, which was before the 3D Terraqueous Macrocosm games, it was still called "Coin Ring". Perhaps it was given this name because it grants one wedge of health like a coin? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 22:28, 30 September 2016 (EDT)
Huh. I was just playing through Dire, Dire Docks earlier. Only rarely did it recover my health (must've been a glitch or something, idk).
Also, it seems a sign in Wet-Dry World mentions the Coin Rings by name? Or is it referring to something else? I have not made it to that course in my current playthrough yet, so I can't check... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:36, 30 September 2016 (EDT)
"If you pass through a coin ring or find a secret point in a course, sometimes a red number will appear. If you trigger five red numbers, a Secret Star will show up." from a sign near the hole that leads to the underwater city. I hope this helps. Also, this could refer to any coin ring of 8 (or 9). PS. This is from DS version. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 22:50, 30 September 2016 (EDT)
Wait... I just read that sign in Dire, Dire Docks. On the boardwalk. In the 64 version. Hm... Perhaps it was supposed to give a coin or something, but was scrapped? Either way, the games are essentially giving it an official name, however wrong it may be. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:58, 30 September 2016 (EDT)
It's talking about the rings made of coins in Bob-omb Battlefield you fly through. - Reboot (talk) 23:05, 30 September 2016 (EDT)

...Yep, the same sign is in Bob-omb Battlefield. Well, that was stupidly obvious... I've been playing the game for years, how did I not think of that?! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:08, 30 September 2016 (EDT)

So, the person assumed that those rings are called Coin Rings since this sign is put in Bob-omb Battlefield, but it's really more akin to the vaguer "secret point". Thanks! Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 23:23, 30 September 2016 (EDT)

So what I am getting at is that there was a misconception about a coin pattern representing a ring and a ring underwater in Dire, Dire Docks being referenced as the same thing with something written on a few signs about secret numbers in other places? If so, is this proposal even necessary? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:25, 1 October 2016 (EDT)

I think the Water Ring could still use an article, but the SM64 segment of the Coin Ring could be rewritten. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:31, 1 October 2016 (EDT)

Are "gold rings" actually capitalized in the SM3DW guide?

Odyssey's Coin Ring[edit]

Doesn't Super Mario Odyssey's coin ring award 10 coins?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by ‎66.235.30.129 (talk).

I just tested it, and it appears they only give three coins, like in 3D World. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 16:44, 24 February 2018 (EST)
