for visiting.

Hi, I'm Ralphfan. You probably already knew that.

Put a new heading or subheading before you put your stuff; don't just indent. That's all. Really.

Except of course...:

  • No racism
  • No swears except the permitted ones (there's a list somewhere)
  • No "inappropriate" (most of you know what I mean) references
  • To format anything else, see how everyone else did it.

Yeah, that's all.

How to Make a Table

Step 1: Choose a material you would like to use. Most tables are wooden, but it's up to you.

Step 2: Showing the measurements, create a design using...


Well hi there. It's pretty awesome that you chose me of all users to ask about making a table. Out of curiosity: What made you choose me?

Anyway, here's the coding of my games table:

== My Reviews Of ''Some'' Games I've Played! == {| style="text-align: center; width: 100%; margin: 0 auto; border-collapse: collapse;" border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" |- style="background-color: yellow;" !Game !! Rating */100% !! Comment |- | ''The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess'' || 96% || "Man, that's the most awesome non-Mario game I've ever played (I've never played Ocarina of Time)'s just so well-made, and huge, and cool, etc." |- | [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]] || 95% || It's just so awesome seeing so many awesome Nintendo characters and worlds collide and watch them smash each other! The Smash Bros. series is pure brilliance, and this one has brilliant graphics and an awesome selection of music from all the game series. And I love the Subspace Emissary mode - especially the bosses! This game is legendary... but somehow, I still consider Twilight Princess to be slightly better (see above)! |- | [[Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door]] || 95% || "That's an awesome RPG! Seriously, it's much more innovative than any other RPG you'll ever play, and it has cool paper graphics, and heaps of funny text and quotes, and and and and and and and it is so fun, and has heaps of detail and depth!" |- | [[Super Mario Galaxy]] || 93% || "That's the coolest 3D platformer I've played...and the best Wii game until I get Super Smash Bros Brawl (bloody Australian release dates...yarr!). It has fully sick graphics, heaps of cool galxies, innovative levels, and plenty of tough missions to keep the hardcore gamers like me busy." |- | [[Super Mario World]] || 93% || "Where do I start? It introduced cool stuff like Mario's [[Cape]], had cool worlds, but most importantly, the amount of secrets...heaps of alternate paths, completely optional hidden levels, the awesome [[Special World]]'s all there!" |- | ''The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass'' || 93% || "Wow. Who knew that a DS game could be so...perfect? It blew me away with the dungeon design, the incredible use of the touch screen, the cool bosses, the music, and everything, and the story was well told." |- | [[Paper Mario]] || 91% || "I downloaded the ROM of this N64 game recently, and I'm so glad I did! It's just as cool as the 2 sequels, with funny quotes, unique, fun, RPG gameplay, and a cool story." |- | [[Mario Kart Wii]] || 92% || "Nintendo has got it just right for once. Everything not so good from previous versions is gone, and the stuff that works very well, like dragging certain items behind your kart, and NOT having Special Items, is all there. Most importantly, the new tracks are incredibly fun and make older tracks seem very boring. The Retro Cups are there to add to the play time availible, which is cool. I'm addicted!" |- | ''Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne (Expansion)'' || 93% || "This is probably my longest-lasting game in terms of replayability. It's full of awesome evil characters, really cool emo quotes, quick RTS gameplay (not all slow-paced), and awesome graphics. I can create really cool levels on the World Editor." |- | [[Yoshi's Island]] || 89% || "This is the most fun Yoshi game I've played. It's got heaps of fun levels, plenty of classic enemies, wicked bosses, impressive graphics (for the GBA, at least), and it's just so stylish. Also, the quest to get 100% on every level is one of the toughest challenges in Mario game history!" |- | [[Super Mario Bros. 3]] || 88% || "This game really takes the Mario series to a new level, as it introduced the map screen, allowing less linear gameplay, and also, many classic items were introduced, such as the [[Leaf]] and the um, other stuff. It is fun. |- | [[Super Paper Mario]] || 87% || "While it wasn't quite as awesome as the previous 2 in the series, I still loved it. It's got lots of funny quotes and stuff, unique 2.5 dimensional graphics, and...most importantly...[[Count Bleck]] and [[Dimentio]]! They are THE coolest characters ever!!! |}

But I recommend you view the source of this page so that you can see the source set out properly.

Ralphfan (was) is a n00b

Yeah, make sure you don't accidentally leave any of my text in your table. Hopefully you can see how to add new rows by viewing this sauce... er, source.

You stupid n00b! (super-awesome l33t!)

Coincidentally, back in my n00b days I had to ask an experienced User how to make a table.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk Back in my day.... th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

For cryin' out loud!

Can you show me exactly what coding you used which cause this problem? I'll try and spot any errors. th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png


Try this: Go into the source of this page right here in this message below, and copy the coding which comes in between the 2 "nowikis" inside <> marks. (those are to show the coding without activating it)

== My Reviews Of ''Some'' Games I've Played! == {| style="text-align: center; width: 100%; margin: 0 auto; border-collapse: collapse;" border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" |- style="background-color: yellow;" !Game !!

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk Frustrating tables... th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png


The coding you used was all horizontal... are you sure you actually clicked Edit on this section of this page (my message) and copied it from there? Don't copy it from the actual page. Dom (talk)

Even More

*faints* Well, on this page right here, you can see that thing on the right of my "How to Make a Table" header, right? The Edit thing. Click on it. Then you're looking at source code. th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk No wonder it's not working th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

Yes, More

Hey, why does everyone say my page is awesome? Well.... THANKS!!! I appreciate the compliments. Tell me if you get the table to work.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk I'm patient with noobs, because we all start off as them. th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

Almost done

Dude, you've got barely any exclamation marks. Such modesty *sigh*.

But anyway, thank you VERY much for the credit to me about the table stuff. But now I see that the table runs right through the Userbox tower... >_>. I had that problem ages ago, so I just moved the whole tower to below the table.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk The size of my page made that possible. th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

The end of this annoying sequence (for now...)

Meh, 30 KB is nothing. I only archive every 40 headers of messages, roughly. Otherwise I'd be archiving way too much, as I get many massages... er, messages.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk By "Some Browsers" it means "Pathetic Browsers" th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

Answer :P

Just paste this where you want it: <whosonline> </whosonline> TucayoSig.png It sometimes doesn't work

Dom's 2 cents

LOL, coincidence. Yeah, as Tucayo said above, it's not the most reliable feature - sometimes it only shows half of the Users who are online :/

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk I'm online, yup. th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png


Oi, thanks for catching that. I censored the word so that it followed our rules. — Stooben Rooben 23:23, 17 January 2009 (EST)

Re: Thanks

Ok, never mind the vote, i also hope Stooby brings back the Fake News PS: Your Userbox is pretty good TucayoSig.png I like pizza


Hey Ralphfan have you ever thought of putting a status bar on your user page just asking? Mario5x.pngMario5x (talk)Mario5x.png

Tu puedes avalar en español si o no? Mario5x.pngMario5x (talk)Mario5x.png

No, ma io parlare italiano.

Sono desolato. Mario5x.pngMario5x (talk)Mario5x.png

My spiel on stubs

Why is it articles from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! are huge, and yet we have practically millions of stubs?

Fake News

The Fake News is no longer in my hands. I handed it off to Glitchman (talk). — Stooben Rooben 01:31, 19 January 2009 (EST)

Um, Yeah...

My sig certainly contains sprites - 2 of them. Why do you ask?

Oh, and you seem to be adding more coding features to your page every minute.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk And here they are, in all their rule-abiding smallness. th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png


I'm looking for Baby Luigi, Baby Mario, and Bowser Jr. sprites for my signature. Let me know if you have or see any of them.


ur last userbox... I'm workin on a fake fake news even now. check my page for the link. Caution! Your Buddy Bill was [[{{{2}}}|here!]]SMB Question Block.gif{{{1}}}



the "REAL" fake news

niiiiiice. Caution! Your Buddy Bill was [[{{{2}}}|here!]]SMB Question Block.gif{{{1}}}


I made it in Photoshop, uploaded it and put it there by using this

[[Image:SSBB-Peach Luigi Taunt.jpg]]

Sprites are kinda images ripped from games here's a great source of them: TucayoSig.png Being crazy is good

User Creation

Hey. If you want to find out when you (or almost anyone else) joined the wiki, go here and type in that person's username. — Stooben Rooben 23:38, 20 January 2009 (EST)


You need to cut it in paint, photoshop, etc, then save it and upload it.

Fake News

LOL at the interview, its great LOL at the obituaries LOL at the cooking guide

You should show it to Stooby. TucayoSig.png This is me sig!


Hey Ralphfan if you want join the Planet Discriptions Pipeproject click here. Mario5x.pngMario5x (talk)Mario5x.png

Re Mario3v

I think your fake news is good, Ralphfan. Keep it up and I bet at least 12 or more people will want to join k. Mario5x.pngMario5x (talk)Mario5x.png

Viewing Sauce, but not Tennis

Viewing the Wiki's many coding functions is one of the best ways to progress from n00b status to l33t status.

Nah, I barely watch any TV... and the last thing I'd watch is sport... seriously, I need interactivity or else I get bored easily... which can lead to a certain terrible event. So, can you watch any Australian TV channels you want? (not that there are many...)

As for your Funny Stuff message:

Lol... but I thought I removed that one from my page :?

Oh, and to archive anything, create a new subpage (eg. "User:Ralphfan/Archive") and just copy and paste stuff and save it. Easy.

And your Lots o' Stuff message:

W00t... thanks! You're one of only 3 users to say that, so you get +100 Awesome Points :O. The game I got is pure awesomeness... it's written in my status. I wouldn't hate Valentine's Day if I at least had a small chance with any girl in the entire world. But I mainly hate it as I envy those with confidence.

Oh, and the coding with your Fake News link seems stuffed up... oh well, I'll find it.

Re: 'Shroom Problem

Thing 1

Well, i dunno why is that, are you using this code: {{'Shroombox}}

Thing 2

For joining the fake news i think its User:Glitchman who you have to contact TucayoSig.png I hope this was helpful

Thing 3

Awesome, it's good to have more people on the Shroom. My Brawl Tactics sections kinda suck, but I just like being part of the project.


Oh, and thanks for fixing the archive link... I was a bit careless as I have so many of them now.

Re: Fake News


Well, i don't know, that's part the director's job. You'll have to ask him, if he doesn't answer(he is likely no to answer), then i'll make the decision.

PS: What does the title has to do with the text???

TucayoSig.png Im almost done with my homework!

Stooben Rooben

Er, please contact Glitchman (talk) about the Fake News. If there are any decisions to be made about the Fake News, go to him. — Stooben Rooben 21:03, 26 January 2009 (EST)


You mean editor of the Fake News or of the whole 'Shroom, BTW there hasn't been FN in like 4 months.

Don't Get Excited...

... For this is just a goodbye message. Normally I wouldn't bother, but seeing how desperate you were to bring me back was really quite touching. Especially that you called me a best friend despite only knowing me for a very short time compared to the likes of Stooben and other folks. But sorry, for I am gone.
