Talk:Time Machine

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

" It (The Wrapulator) can also be used after the elder Princess Shroob was defeated, at the price of reversing the victory over the Shroob empire. "

How so? I don't think you can use it in Peach Castle. Glowsquid

You can: there's a save block right before you fight Shrower, and Stuffwell allows you to reverse time there. --NintendoExpert89 20:16, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Official titles?[edit]

Are any of their names official? NSMBW Mario and Yoshi Jumping Artwork.pngXzelionETC

All of them except the third sound official. I know for a fact that the Time Travel Tube is, since I was watching the episode when I researched the name. -- Booster
Thanks. Well, since they all (except one) have official names & have enough info. Should this page be split? NSMBW Mario and Yoshi Jumping Artwork.pngXzelionETC
I was going to create a seperate article for at least the Time Travel Tube when I did my writeup of the TAoSMB3 episode, but when I saw that all the time machines were being lumped into one page, I backed out. You're welcome to split it if you want. -- Booster

It's best to leave them all on one page. None are truly significant to be put in separate articles, so it's best to have one general article about Time Machines in the Mario series. As for the third time machine, it is only referred to as such in the game, no real name was given to it. --NintendoExpert89 18:44, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

But what makes an time/article significant? I was lead to believe if an article has enough info, is officially named, and affects the gameplay that it would make it significant. These qualities are met here. NSMBW Mario and Yoshi Jumping Artwork.pngXzelionETC

I mean it's not significant because you can only expand on something to certain degree. That's the problem with most of the articles on Mario Wiki: every single item has its own article even though the gist of it can be given it in only one or two sentences. It's not enough to create a whole article about it. It's a waste of space. On a related note, the "E. gadd's Inventions" category is enough. We don't need to make a whole new category "Time Machines" even though we can leave it all easily on one page. --NintendoExpert89 22:12, 22 October 2007 (EDT)
