Talk:Mario Playing Cards

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Would it be of any help I were to buy some of these decks, scan the cards, and upload them?--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 15:25, 13 December 2016 (EST)

That would definitely help; it would look a lot more consistent than using artwork of varying sizes as we are now.

Only the first four are on amazon, each roughly $10, or roughly $40 in total. Do you want to split the difference?--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 15:41, 13 December 2016 (EST)
I just found 5 and 6 on amazon, same prices, so now that's roughly $60 in total.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 15:47, 13 December 2016 (EST)
I don't think if I could afford to do that at this time.

I'll figure things out. I have friends, I can talk to them and see if anyone is willing to pitch in. Actually, as I'm writing this one such friend just agreed to help and will pay for a pack. If you want to pay for a single pack, I can email you a shipping address. If I'm doing this, I want all the cards scanned by the same scanner so they're all the same quality and such. I also don't want to keep the cards once I'm done.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 16:06, 13 December 2016 (EST)
Please, don't do anything, I have all the decks scanned! If you want, I can personally upload all the decks so you extract the single cards from them!--Mister Wu (talk) 17:29, 13 December 2016 (EST)
You have the scans?! Why didn't you uploaded them?! Are they qood?--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 17:30, 13 December 2016 (EST)
Start uploading them right away!--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 17:34, 13 December 2016 (EST)
I never ended because they are 312 cards, which means a lot of time to extract each one of them from the scans, especially because I was trying before to extract them without the borders, since the scanner cut the left border of the cards on the left and I thought that it wouldn't have looked nice. Honestly, seeing how much time is required to recenter the rectangle when the borders cannot be used as reference and since the cards couldn't have the same size anyway due to the cards with the number "10", it is much better to upload the cards with the borders, even if some will have slightly cut borders (they are white, so nothing relevant is lost). I never began so far because there were other works I was involved in. I personally created this page using my decks as reference, so if you think their scans are an high priority, in a matter of a few weeks, I'll upload them.--Mister Wu (talk) 17:45, 13 December 2016 (EST)
Awesome, best of luck!

Please send me the raw scans and I'll take care of it. I have plenty of time after this week.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 18:06, 13 December 2016 (EST)

Wow, this looks great now.
