"Under Turb's permission"[edit]

I'm assuming he's referring to Turboo (talk), but there has been no visible communication regarding that, and why is a new user making this page? When I attempted something similar, it got shot down. I'd like some Admin verification, if that's not too much to ask for. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:28, 7 February 2018 (EST)

I'd like to apologize for the lack of transparency; this user contacted Glowsquid and I on our IRC channel, and I can get logs of our conversation if required. I was rather unsure and still am about whether it's allowed (a sortable chart on the original page might be a better solution), but there seemed to be no significant objections to him creating the page while the discussion was happening. If there are any other issues, I'd be fine with discussing it with the other admins at length. - Turboo (talk) 22:37, 7 February 2018 (EST)

Some Missing Enemies[edit]

While looking over this page I realized Klepto and Foos are missing from the Mario 64 section. Is there any specific reason for that? I'll keep looking for anything else missing in other games and update my post here. --TheAFM (talk) 09:49, July 2, 2019 (EDT)

I added Cannon, Cannonball, Spike ball which are first appeared in the Super Mario Bros 3 . Mario123456789 (talk) 02:51, February 11, 2020 (EST)

...those are obstacles <_> Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:11, February 11, 2020 (EST)
But in Super Mario Run enemy notebook there is a Cannonball . Mario123456789 (talk) 02:56, February 12, 2020 (EST)
It's still an obstacle by the rawest definition of the word. Note how we don't have things like barrels in the DK section. That's deliberate. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:45, February 12, 2020 (EST)

One more thing... In DK section there is Donkey Kong which is a boss. And in Super Mario Bros. Turtle cannon it isn't an enemy... Mario123456789 (talk) 10:21, February 14, 2020 (EST)

Donkey Kong is absolutely not a "boss" by the typical definition. While he is the antagonist, he isn't truly "battled" in any quantifiable way except in the GB remake. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 11:42, February 14, 2020 (EST)

Ok. But what about Turtle Cannon? Mario123456789 (talk) 12:18, February 14, 2020 (EST)

Bill Blaster seems to be "alive" to some extent in Paper Mario games and Superstar Saga. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:19, February 14, 2020 (EST)

Oh now I understand. :) Mario123456789 (talk) 02:41, February 15, 2020 (EST)

Autoconfirm protection?[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

This page is a near endless target for well-meaning but misguided IPs adding things like obstacles and bosses, removing non-boss enemy characters, and adding enemies to sections after their respective debut. Should it just be protected so only registered or autoconfirmed users can edit it? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:35, May 19, 2020 (EDT)

Is being discussed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:52, May 19, 2020 (EDT)
It got vandalized today four times in a row. You really need to protect it. Wynn Liaw Boomerang Mario Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png 10:49, June 4, 2020 (EDT)
