Why don't we have a page about swimmable water?[edit]

I mean, we have a page for poison, and a page for lava, so why don't we have a page for water? BeingAwesom (talk) 19:54, 16 February 2019 (EST)

That doesn't sound like a bad idea, though maybe there should be more opinions on this.

I'd be down for it. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk)

We used to. Walkazo deleted it in 2011 for being a generic subject that functioned like real water, though from a series-wide standpoint, there are many variations on how it works. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:38, 16 February 2019 (EST)
So... should we start making a water page? We could move this water page to "Water (Paper Mario)". The only kinda problem is that we may need a lot of images and info. --BeingAwesom (talk) 21:52, 16 February 2019 (EST)
I'm still not 100% on board with this. I think an article over swimming would do better (due to the larger variance of rules that apply to it between games). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:58, 16 February 2019 (EST)
While we could have an article about swimming, I feel like having an article about water would still be needed. It can be used in many others way than just swimming, and it would also just be better to have an article about water because it's more consistent with the rest of the wiki and is a part of the Mario universe. Plus, as I said, we have lava and poison, so why not water? --BeingAwesom (talk) 22:03, 16 February 2019 (EST)
I'd still say start with the swimming article, then maybe decide via proposal if creating an article about swimmable water is actually worth pursuing. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 10:39, 17 February 2019 (EST)
I agree. Start with a "Swimming" article. Bowser Idle.gif Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:10, 17 February 2019 (EST)
Dude, your signature has breached in the code!
If we make a water article, should we perhaps include the instances of water in land levels from Super Mario Bros? Those that you can't swim in and only send you to death. Super Mario Bros. lava is covered in the same way even though it functions just the same, and both substances debuted in a Mario game with Super Mario Bros. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 21:51, 17 February 2019 (EST)
Yeah, I think we should. If lava has information about Super Mario Bros., then water should too. --BeingAwesom (talk) 07:52, 18 February 2019 (EST)
Yeah, let's make the page! -CBFan5
