No worries, and when you made those article, the category didn't exist I only made it recently :P Yoshi876 (talk)

Question[edit]

Are the images you're uploading official? Yoshi876 (talk)

  • They were posted on Miiverse by Mr. Otani (the producer of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.) and Mr. Kubota (from AlphaDream). Agentdave7 (talk) 16:59, 11 August 2013 (EDT)
Okay, thanks, you may want to say that in the Aboutfile if you haven't. Yoshi876 (talk)

Where's the Aboutfile? I have posted links to the actual Miiverse posts on each image. Agentdave7 (talk) 17:02, 11 August 2013 (EDT)

A template that will organize the files look.. see {{Aboutfile}} for help. And Oh. Please give good names to images you upload--
User:MegadarderyUser talk:MegadarderyDashbot.png
17:04, 11 August 2013 (EDT)

Some of the pictures are deleted or pending deletion. I don't understand. Sorry about the names of files I didn't know that you could change the names. Agentdave7 (talk) 17:06, 11 August 2013 (EDT)

When a file is moved it creates a redirect that needs to be deleted. The files remain. Yoshi876 (talk)
Don't worry, they are moved.. File:MLDT Concept Art Two.jpg, File:MLDT concept art.jpg, File:Bowser sprite MLDT.jpg--

Thanks for your help! I'll try to rename the last few images. Agentdave7 (talk) 17:16, 11 August 2013 (EDT)

Yoshi876 and Megadardery are the last 4 images correct? I added a better description to all the sprites. Agentdave7 (talk) 17:30, 11 August 2013 (EDT)

Looks fine to me. Yoshi876 (talk)

RE: ML:DT Concept artwork[edit]

The one you uploaded yesterday should be deleted as the two new ones are in png format, which is preferable over the jpeg format in this case. Yoshi876 (talk)

No problem, and besides YoshiKong is as admin, he's meant to know what he's doing :P Yoshi876 (talk)

Reply[edit]

He's allowed to change it and add his signature. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 17:16, 13 August 2013 (EDT)

Altering other people's content is not allowed, so he'll have to do it.

Re: Image question[edit]

Hello Agentdave7. No worries: I thought it would be best if the two artwork were separate files. In response to your question, I'm sure it would be good to keep all three files. We could create a new section in the gallery, perhaps titled "Miiverse development posts" or something along those lines. This could keep together all the images with the yella background, rather than sticking them with the actual solo sprites and models.

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 08:09, 15 August 2013 (EDT)

Re: Question[edit]

Yes, you can upload the images to the gallery. Be sure to give credit to the website you're getting the QR codes from as well. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

The gallery would be the best place to put them. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Yep, everything looks good. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

RE: Private Sandbox/Workspace?[edit]

I have this for my work, you should try creating your own. Yoshi876 (talk)

No problemo. Yoshi876 (talk)

RE: Since you're online here's a question[edit]

Links can be in italics, like here or here. Also please read, 4 on my page, thanks. Yoshi876 (talk)

You don't have to if you don't want to it's your thing. And I don't care if comments are unsigned on my talkpage, I'd like them to be signed but I can check histories to see who wants me. Yoshi876 (talk)
Only the dialouge, don't have stage directions. Yoshi876 (talk)
Yep, if it's in brackets, it's not needed. Yoshi876 (talk)
Looks good, but you may want to use the button templates. Yoshi876 (talk)

Dream Team Script[edit]

Hey, just wanted to say that you're doing a nice job with your script of Dream Team here. I'd like to point out that for easy readability, you should bold the characters' names and just have their lines un-italicized (Antasma: Like thees vor example! SCREEEK!). Elsewise, good work. Keep it up! --Zootalo (talk) 22:35, 25 August 2013 (EDT)

As per Turboo, it's fine with me, as the quotes for the games here are also italicized. Seeing as how you've also broken up the dialogues as they appear in the speech balloons, I'd say you're good to go! Now to post my Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon script... --Zootalo (talk) 23:43, 25 August 2013 (EDT)

RE: Quick Question[edit]

I would say using italics is correct, since the Yoshi's Safari script uses italics as well. - Turboo (talk) 23:11, 25 August 2013 (EDT)

I think the brackets probably help the script make more sense; the Broggy scene is definitely a lot more coherent with them. Some of the scenes probably don't NEED brackets, but adding them shouldn't harm anything, so I'd say go for it. - Turboo (talk) 23:36, 25 August 2013 (EDT)
You're welcome. Good luck with finishing the script! - Turboo (talk) 23:57, 25 August 2013 (EDT)

Potential personal image[edit]

Hello. Did you wish to keep this as a personal image? It doesn't have much use asides from the userspace. If you wish, you could probably link it via URL if you didn't want it to take up one of your personal images.

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 03:03, 27 August 2013 (EDT)

Re: Why'd you remove the LC:U Image?[edit]

"Additional image" means more on the image related representive. Any Mario refs image are included.

Re: Image Question:[edit]

To link an image from an external URL, simply copy and paste the image URL onto it's own line into an edit box. As far as I know, these can't be re-sized or a caption added.

Hey, awesome. Thanks for the tip!

Uploads[edit]

It works properly, you need to clear your cache (Ctrl + F5 on Firefox) or wait a while for it to show up. Please don't keep continuously uploading and reverting it; just keep it on the 480 x 480 version. - Turboo (talk) 20:30, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

That's because your cache is still showing the old version. Reuploading it and clearing it should work. - Turboo (talk) 20:36, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

I can't do that, sorry. You'll have to ask a sysop. - Turboo (talk) 20:44, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

This userspace warning was incorrectly given out; removed by Tucayo.

Special:Contributions is a far better indicator when giving a userspace warning. Taking your last 100 edits into account, you only have 16 Main + File edits. It's just a small heads-up. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 23:34, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

RE: I have a question, can you help?[edit]

I'm afraid I know little to nothing about uploading, sorry. Yoshi876 (talk)

Not sure whether they can help, but the two most experienced users I can see are M&SG (talk) and Time Turner (talk). Yoshi876 (talk)
I'm flattered that you consider me as an experienced user, though I wasn't very knowledgeable on this particular aspect. Also, as a tip, you indent comments by using colons (:) and not asterisks (*). Hello, I'm Time Turner.

RE: Year of Luigi Sound Selection[edit]

That's great. Does the CD itself have the song names? If so, are the ones I listed the correct names? YoshiHeadSSB4-U.png Tails777 Talk to me!RobinHeadSSB4-U.png

Yep, you're doing it right. YoshiHeadSSB4-U.png Tails777 Talk to me!RobinHeadSSB4-U.png
No prob. Songs can be uploaded so long as they're in OGG format. YoshiHeadSSB4-U.png Tails777 Talk to me!RobinHeadSSB4-U.png
I actually know the names of the songs, the ones I listed the first time were the American names. Plus the song entitled "Try Try Again!", that's the Real World battle theme, the one on the sound track is the Dream World battle theme. YoshiHeadSSB4-U.png Tails777 Talk to me!RobinHeadSSB4-U.png

Re: 2 Super Bells?[edit]

If you look closely, the two artworks are different. They sit on the same angle, but the eyes are looking in different directions.

It doesn't really matter which one is used as the main image on the Super Bell page. The one that's already there seems fine.

Yes, I don't see why not. The gallery is the best place to keep all the game artwork together.

RE: What do you mean belongs on Forums?[edit]

It was the comment as to why they are tiaras, personally I don't think it will benefit the article in any way and it seems more for a forum that a mainspace talk page. Yoshi876 (talk)

The problem is though, just thoughts mean speculation and that isn't allowed, even in talkpages. Yoshi876 (talk)
The way your comment was presente was very much forum based, just add it at the end of your original comment. Yoshi876 (talk)

Re: Image Deletion[edit]

I can't delete it, sorry; you'll have to ask a Sysop or Bureaucrat to do that. - Turboo (talk) 20:31, 1 November 2013 (EDT)

Image question[edit]

Hello. Um, out of curiosity how did you manage to obtain images such as this?

So, wait what's Flower Town?
Okay, thanks for the clarification. So how do you capture and edit the images in such high quality?
Awesome work: keep 'em coming!

Image[edit]

If you don't want the image you blanked, just put the delete tag on it. Ztar Power (talk) 19:37, 4 November 2013 (EST)

If you blank it, the file still exists, so you have to ask an admin to delete it in order to get rid of it. Ztar Power (talk) 19:45, 4 November 2013 (EST)

File[edit]

You are aware file redirects are not encouraged and are generally deleted right? Yoshi876 (talk)

You're meant to relink, though don't have to worry about it unless you mind your sig being broken in places. Yoshi876 (talk)
Then go do that. Yoshi876 (talk)

Re: Personal Construction Banners?[edit]

Hello. About your idea, I doubt it's really necessary. We don't need to make it clear which user is working on a page: the history of that page can tell us that.

It's better if you don't use it. I've discussed it with the other admins, and the verdict was that the point of a wiki is that once it's out there, it's available for anyone to edit. It's acceptable to explain to other users that you're going to do something, and ask people not to snipe your edits and whatnot, but actually putting your name on an article is getting superfluous. If you don't want someone to mess with something if it's in progress, make the changes on a draft page.
No worries: you did the right thing by asking first. Also, on an unrelated note, how do you manage to extract content on those Flash webpages? The program that I previously used gives a black background, and you re-uploaded them without the background.

RE:Someone's being rude[edit]

Just remove it, if you feel it's flame you allowed to remove the comment. Yoshi876 (talk)

Putting images in tables.[edit]

It's actually simple. In Stamp (Super Mario 3D World), you have a table like this, right?

{|width=100% cellspacing=0 border=2 cellpadding=3 style="border-collapse:collapse;background:white"
|-style="background:black;color:white"

!colspan="3"|[[World Castle]]

!colspan="3"|[[World Flower (Super Mario 3D World)|World Flower]]
|-style="background:gold;color:white"
!colspan="3"|[[World Crown (Super Mario 3D World)|World Crown]]
|}

Notice the part where is says this:

!Image
!Level
!Location

Now, these are simply titles where the information corresponds.

|- Signifies the next row. Now, notice the | marks after the style and colspan part.

Now, since !Image is listed first, you can simply put the image in the first | after the |-

At the moment, unfortunately, I don't the correct spots for the images, so you can add them yourself. If you have any further questions (after all, I may not do a good job at explaining), just ask. Thanks!

Images[edit]

Hi, would you be able to help with uploading some images that we need?

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 01:53, 6 March 2014 (EST)

I noticed that you previously uploaded several of the icons (or sprites or whatever they're called) that are used in world and level names in Super Mario 3D World, which is awesome. So now we only need six more, which are the Bowser's face icon for World Bowser, the Star icon for World Star, the Mushroom icon for World Mushroom, the Fire Flower icon for World Flower, the smaller Castle icon for Castle levels, and the Mystery Box icon for Mystery House levels. I substituted the icons that we already have from other games for now, but would you be able to upload those please? Then I could replace the ones currently in Template:World with the new ones. There are also Toad House and Slot Machine icons that don't appear on any world map or the progress lists, but can be seen when the player pauses the game while in one of those locations (i.e. World 1-Toad House, World 1-Slot Machine, etc.)...I'm not sure if we would need those icons to be uploaded as well, or if actually typing out the names of those areas anywhere is kinda unnecessary, meaning uploading those icons would be as well. I was also wondering if you could upload the crown icon that's used in Special 8-Crown's level name in Super Mario 3D Land, which is like the crown icon from Super Mario 3D World, except it's outlined in black as opposed to red.
