  1. Standard Mario Wiki rules apply, of course. No spamming, trolling, vandalizing, removing comments, etc. Please follow the rules, your comment will get removed otherwise. You don't have to sign your comments here, but it'll make it easier for me to get back to you if you do.
  2. No swearing or obscenity. These words will get edited out ASAP.
  3. Please don't ask why I reverted or corrected your edit. Usually, I have a good reason and can back it up. Take a look at my contributions or the page history for more information regarding your edit, if available. If you must, you can ask for clarification, but only if you provide more than "Why did you delete my edit?!" (which will get removed).
  4. Questions about my Power Master games and/or YouTube videos are fine. There are other places for those kinds of talk, of course, but I don't mind them on here.
  5. Any questions relating to a different wiki, please post on my talk page there. If you're here to complain about a block I gave you on other wikis, your comment will be removed, though I may clarify a block on Discord if needed. Though if you need my immediate attention elsewhere, you can notify me here (or Discord), as I'm more active here than anywhere else.
  6. I'm a friendly guy and am willing to engage in friendly conversation, so long as the sections don't become too excessive. If a topic header already exists for your question, please post under that.
  7. I will archive once this talk page reaches 200 messages. Please do not make any message telling me to archive. It's a waste of a notification, and it will be removed.
  8. Unless it's an important response you should know about or if I started the conversation on your page, I will respond here.
  9. I welcome friendship, but only if I know you well enough.
  10. I'm all for helping with games, so long as I own it or the guide! Otherwise, I probably won't be able to help much.


The hand thing[edit]

??? and "Hand" are explicitly the same character. Note the source they use to give "Hand" its name.
"Many characters from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask appear in Labrynna, and the hand in the toilet is one of them."
Note that this is in lowercase and explicitly identified as the same character. So by Zeldawiki's standards, they must be different, particularly as they cite Hyrule Encyclopedia (which has the exact same situation SMBE had for us, they just refuse to acknowledge that). As for "Phoeni," that's a PRIMA name for a character that in the game itself was called ???. They were split three days ago by an admin. Anyways, I'm just going to consider this the ultimate proof that Zeldawiki is broken beyond repair. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:21, March 25, 2019 (EDT)

I messed up again :/[edit]

Hi Alex, sorry to bother you. I've been trying to upload some pictures from the DK Wiki on to the site and I keep on messing up. I want to thank you for fixing my Tomato pic. As you can probably tell I have no idea what I'm doing. I thought I had it figured out, but then I made the same mistake with these two files:

So I was wondering if you could fix them for me and let me know what I'm doing wrong so I don't have to keep on asking you for help.

Thank you, EDShoot (talk) March 26, 2019

Wiki rules[edit]

The rules of this wiki say that if a normal user adds his or her point (whether it be for advice or not) on another user's talk page on which an admin gave a warning or block, it just makes the admins' jobs harder. Why would that be the case if the commenting user wants to give the warned or blocked user advice or a past experience? Dwhitney (talk) 13:49, March 27, 2019 (EDT)

Re:Yoshi Colors[edit]

The proposal was initially just about Green Yoshi for now, but I was encouraged to switch gears to more/all colors ahead of time. That might have been how you overlooked it, although it definitely wasn't my intention, and it did get 12-1-2 in favor of merging after all. I did just take into account the platform games when I made the proposal (though I'd consider Super Mario Sunshine one special Yoshi with unique color-changing abilities and Super Mario Galaxy 2 just the main green Yoshi under the temporary affects of power-up fruit), but Baby Luigi did bring up the stat differences in the spinoffs. The individual colors and their occasional differences will be mentioned in the species article when the merge is complete. I was also thinking about adding a table of appearances for the Yoshi colors in the species article, so that information is now in one easily accessible spot. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:45, March 27, 2019 (EDT)


Okay, I uploaded a better image, and this time I want to mark the old image for deletion correctly. To get rid of the links the old image marks, should I change its filename to the new filename on all its pages? And on the old image's file page, should the new image's filename be after "{{delete|[[:File:Image.png|replaced"? Dwhitney (talk) 22:17, March 28, 2019 (EDT)

Colored Yoshi articles[edit]

I'm going to miss those colored Yoshi articles, but considering that the other colored Yoshis aren't as famous as the one Yoshi we all know and love, I think it's better to have their information on the Yoshi (species) article. Maybe the thumbnail that was on each colored Yoshi article could be added to the "Gallery" section on the Yoshi (species) article or to its article's gallery page? Dwhitney (talk) 13:12, March 29, 2019 (EDT)

Probably. LinkTheLefty (talk) is the one working on it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:27, March 29, 2019 (EDT)

Beta Kretin[edit]

Image-quality won't change that TSR doesn't have a rip for it and that appears to be a jpg-to-png conversion. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:57, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

Point of the image-quality template is to notify that the image needs improved. TSR may not have the sprite now, but they could later. The image does have a use despite its quality, and it is clear what this image is supposed to be, so it doesn't need to be deleted. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:15, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
It's misleading and against policy.....also TSR has none in queue and haven't added anything to that section for months. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:18, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
Looks more like a poor YouTube capture than a jpg to png conversion to me. How is it misleading? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:24, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
Because it's not a true sprite rip. sprite rips are at least mostly pixel-accurate. This isn't even size-accurate, much less a good crop. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:43, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
Alright, good point. Perhaps an actual cropped screenshot would work better until the actual sprite gets ripped, if you're able to do that. For now, I'll get rid of this thing. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:54, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

Lost some history[edit]

This has been bothering me, what exactly did you mean here? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:18, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

The link Mari0fan100 posted went to a fake warning, but the talk page owner, B.wilson, started removing their talk page content for several revisions and no one put any of it back. That's what I meant, I meant the user talk page's history is "lost", as in it'd be difficult (not to mention, pointless) to restore it all back.
Sorry, I meant to clarify but I forgot to go back to that >_< Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:23, March 31, 2019 (EDT)
OK, that makes sense. That sort of confusion is why when I'm responding to a point several indentations ago, I match my indentations up as though the ones between them aren't there. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:29, March 31, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, I didn't exactly place that well, either. My bad for saying something completely irrelevant and unhelpful ^^; Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:44, March 31, 2019 (EDT)


If I were to be your friend (as I think we're on friendly terms now), what would that mean? Dwhitney (talk) 01:01, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, we're pretty friendly :) It means you can put my friend userbox to your userpage, and I could add yours to my page. No perks or anything, just a fun thing that shows we get along well :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:05, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

To put your friend userbox on my userpage, must I add info about me on my userpage? Dwhitney (talk) 22:34, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

You can just add the userbox if you want to. Whatever you put on your userpage is up to you. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:37, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

It's done. Dwhitney (talk) 22:55, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Yay ^^ Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:56, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Are you going to add my friend userbox to your userpage? (Oh, wait ... do I even have a friend userbox?) Dwhitney (talk) 13:59, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

You do not have a userbox, but I would add it if you made one! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:36, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

How do I make a userbox? Dwhitney (talk) 16:50, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

You can copy the coding of any available userboxes (mine, for example) and adjust the coding as you see fit, using preview to check and keep adjusting until you end up with something you like. You can find more userboxes and how to use them at MarioWiki:Userboxes. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:54, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

I made my userbox, but something about my user page doesn't look right. Dwhitney (talk) 20:55, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

Follow the directions at MarioWiki:Userboxes. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:57, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

I think I did it. Dwhitney (talk) 21:52, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

Yep! And I'll add yours to my page :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:59, April 26, 2019 (EDT)


Why do you admins prefer that image filenames have lowercase extensions? Dwhitney (talk) 01:17, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Consistency, mainly. Makes things easier to remember. Unlike mainspace capitalization autoredirects, typing "jpg" will not work for an image that has "JPG" in the filename. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:23, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Mario riddle 2[edit]

Here's another Mario riddle I made up. Bowser challenges Mario to play Game & Watch Gallery 4--collecting all 220 stars--in one day. Mario accepts the challenge, with Bowser believing it won't be done. Mario goes home and starts playing the game from the beginning. After a few failed attempts, he earns five stars in every minigame mode, except for Game B in the Classic and Modern versions of Donkey Kong 3 and Boxing, since he doesn't have anyone with whom to play the two-player modes. As a result, he collects 200 stars. He even plays the Museum games just for fun. The next day, Mario returns to Bowser to show him the result. Bowser is shocked to see that Mario collected all 220 stars, meaning Mario won the challenge. However, Mario didn't have an extra copy of Game & Watch Gallery 4, and he didn't ask anyone to play the two-player modes with him that day. How did Mario win Bowser's challenge? Dwhitney (talk) 14:35, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Can you get stars from Museum games? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:12, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

No, you can't. Dwhitney (talk) 17:13, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Then I don't know. Don't have the game, so I don't know how we would do this. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:18, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Answer: Mario showed Bowser a save file of when he previously completed the game. Dwhitney (talk) 17:26, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Doesn't the game only have one save file? Or would that mean Mario has an extra copy, which he could've used to get the remaining stars? Looking at a video doesn't show me any kind of file selection. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:31, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

In the description section of World of Longplays' YouTube videos of Game & Watch Gallery 4, the player says that he couldn't receive the last 20 stars since he didn't have another player, but he found a save with the cast credits. That's how I got the idea for this riddle, but maybe I misunderstood it? Dwhitney (talk) 17:50, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, that's the video I found, but I... don't know. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:53, March 31, 2019 (EDT)


This is a poem I wrote. I call it "Twenty-one Errors in an Essay." Please tell me what you think. Can you identify the 21st error?

What is so wrong about my essay, My non-understanding teacher?

For me to begin, you wrote in pen; You didn't intent each paragraph within. You didn't write neat and wrote the number two, And as for homonyms, you wrote the wrong blue. There are no periods, colons, or commas; And as for spelling, you misspelled drama. Your name isn't here and nor is the date; You finished this paper and turned it in late. You've too many and{'}s and too many then{'}s; You used the same adverbs over again. You used contractions, and I told you so, To use them in essays, the answer is no. Proper nouns need to be capitalized; Plagiarizing's bad, in case you haven't realized. You didn't quote dialogue, as you can see; And in this sentence, you're supposed to use we.

Sorry about my essay, Miss ... I had a day to finish this. Dwhitney (talk) 18:10, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Sorry the poem isn't formatted the way it's supposed to be. Dwhitney (talk) 18:12, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Don't worry about the formatting, pay it no mind.
I read it all, the error was easy to find.
I didn't even have to finish to find the mistake.
Though I may have had to do a double-take.
The error is obvious, even more so if read live.
You simply misspelled "indent" on line five. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:26, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Gosh darn autocorrect! That wasn't the error I had in mind. The last error is hinted in the last two lines of the poem. What is it? Dwhitney (talk) 18:40, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Well, darn, I put effort into that XD I figured it had something to do with the end of the poem, but I wasn't sure. I've turned in single-day long assignments late before, so that doesn't seem like a mistake to me. Well, a different kind of mistake, if that's what it is. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:45, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Start with the line "Sorry about my essay, Miss ..." and read the line after that. This error might be the biggest one to make in an essay (it's likely something a lot of people do when they don't want to do something they need to do at the moment). What is it? Dwhitney (talk) 18:52, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

...Lie? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:55, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

No, not that. Here's a clue: This error that the student made in writing his essay led to him making all the other errors. It can be summarized in only one common word. Dwhitney (talk) 19:01, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Procrastination is the other word coming to mind, but if that's it, I have no time frame here. Turned it in late, yes, but how long did they have to work on the essay? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:08, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

You got it! The time frame doesn't matter. The student had time to write a better essay, but because he procrastinated, he ended up rushing through it after realizing it was overdue; as a result, his teacher gave it a failing grade. I've had some experiences of that (though probably not with that many errors). When we procrasinate, what we need to get done either doesn't get done at all or doesn't get done as planned. Procrastination seems like a little thing, but it can make a big difference, usually negatively. Dwhitney (talk) 19:22, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Your poem was nice, anyway. Dwhitney (talk) 20:01, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Thanks :P I get it, procrastination sucks. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:03, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Here's another poem I wrote. I was inspired to write it after seeing the Mario Party 9 minigame Don't Look. This poem is called "Don't Look!" What do you think of it?

The arrows are pointing up, left, and right.
Now's your chance to look around.
Hey! You weren't supposed to look up.
You were supposed to look down! Dwhitney (talk) 19:49, March 31, 2019 (EDT)
You mean Look Away.
Pretty good, but please try not to make excessive new sections on my talk page. Just the one header is enough, and I keep getting notifications... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:03, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Sorry about that. Dwhitney (talk) 20:08, March 31, 2019 (EDT)

Gull and Albatross[edit]

Remember when you said you wanted to see a source for the Wario Land II info? You're in luck! The YouTube video "Wario Land II - Game Manual (GB) (Instruction Booklet)" uploaded by Game Instruction Manual Retro is the source I found. However, it appears not to say anything about the white birds. Maybe they weren't named back then?

By the way, nice image on your user page. Dwhitney (talk) 01:02, April 1, 2019 (EDT)

Sounds vaguely familiar. Where did I say that? ^^; If they aren't given a name anywhere in the manual or game, perhaps a guide somewhere? Regardless, how it is now works, maybe we can slap {{part conjecture}} on it...
And thanks, switching things up for April Fools' why not :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:10, April 1, 2019 (EDT)
Reminder that they use recycled graphics. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:20, April 1, 2019 (EDT)

Mario Kart 64[edit]

I recently had a chance to play Mario Kart 64 with my siblings, and boy, did it bring back memories! I forgot that in VS, the sound effects of the first player, including the kart, item boxes, and water and lava fall-ins, are omitted (at least, in two-player mode)--bummer.

The "Enemies" section table on the Mario Kart 64 article has "Bat" red-linked, but I'm not sure an article about it should be created, likely because there's not much info about it. Also, the "Non-playable" table section requests that additional images be uploaded, but an image is in each row in the first column. What are your thoughts about these? Dwhitney (talk) 23:17, April 1, 2019 (EDT)

For older TVs with only one audio port, it actually depends which audio color plug you put in. I think it's red for top and white for bottom. If both can be inserted, should work fine. We did four-player Mario Kart 64 the other day, and sound played just fine.
The Bat enemy is really just a generic bat, it doesn't do much until that run into you. It's role was replaced by Swoops in later games, so maybe it should link to there? The image template has been moved down a section. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:23, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

According to the in-game quotes on the Banshee Boardwalk article, the bats are simply called "bats," so maybe "Bat" on the Mario Kart 64 article shouldn't link to Swoop. Dwhitney (talk) 22:59, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

True, but "bat" is used generically, and isn't significant enough to warrant its own article. Removing the link altogether is also an option. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:04, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

I might just do that. Dwhitney (talk) 23:06, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

Should the balloons in Mario Kart 64 have their own article? Originally, "balloon" on the article was linked to a disambiguation page on which the Mario Kart 64 balloons aren't linked, so I linked "balloon" on the Mario Kart 64 page to the Balloon Battle section on the Battle Mode page. Dwhitney (talk) 17:55, April 16, 2019 (EDT)

Nah, the link to Balloon Battle is enough. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:58, April 16, 2019 (EDT)

And uh how do I merge things again my username is HERODK on the dk wiki [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 19:02, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

Look over the information on DKWiki to see if there is anything worth bringing over on to Mario Wiki, like missing level information and certain images, just by copy and pasting. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:03, April 2, 2019 (EDT)
Things might need to be rewritten due to the DKWiki's generally poor writing. Once merged add a {{delete}} template to the DKWiki page and RMV will delete it. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:06, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

Do I need something to tell I am merging? [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 19:22, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

Placing a delete template on the DKWiki page tells that is has been looked over. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:23, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

About the OGA file on Mario Party Pandemonium.[edit]

Mikoro filled up a "reupload" claim on the file because the beginning was cut off, but is this REALLY necessary? I've seen a lot of OGA files that had the beginning cut off, which made me think that is how it was supposed to be like. --Tent2 (talk) 17:11, April 3, 2019 (EDT)

I already reverted it. Sample tracks don't have to have a beginning, that's up to the uploader I believe. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:12, April 3, 2019 (EDT)

Ok so can I use things like A Button on the shroom demo because I need to try again?
Oh. Yeah, if that's what you want to do for it, then go ahead. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:44, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

I don't think there's a character limit for Shroom sections. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:49, April 26, 2019 (EDT)
I do not mean to barge in, however the 'Shroom:Manual of Style details how long a section should be in this section. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 13539, April 26, 2019 (EDT)
Whoop, I was thinking max limit. Yeah, it does need to be a certain size to be sent in, depending on the team. I think it can be as long as it needs to, as long as it has substantial content. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:56, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

Protected pages[edit]

I noticed that the Game & Watch and Secret Aquarium articles were protected indefinitely because people kept adding to them things that weren't intended to be said in them ("Game Watch" for "Game & Watch" and "Drown House" for "The Secret Aquarium"). Just for the heck of it, I looked up "super mario 64 ds drown house" on both Google and YouTube to see what I could find. The first results on neither website were "the Secret Aquarium," so I wonder where people got that phrase. Any ideas? Dwhitney (talk) 15:44, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

Probably just vandals trying to mess around with no real reason. Also, a level filled with water=the player drowning. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:57, April 4, 2019 (EDT) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:51, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

How ever did you find such a source for my question? Dwhitney (talk) 18:53, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

I looked it up a while ago, when the vandalism first started happening. Just searching "The Drown House" gave me that as the first result. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:18, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

RE: SHROOM[edit]

The main problem with the last PDKJR proposal was that pretty much all of the votes were joke votes. Even ones from the admins. So, if a proposal was made, would it be treated seriously with any joke votes being removed by the admins? Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 21:07, April 5, 2019 (EDT)

...I have absolutely no clue. Really the one you have to convince is Glowsquid. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:12, April 5, 2019 (EDT)


Hey, mind if I go ahead and start removing notes sections from level infoboxes? Just figured it'd be kinda rude to do that without asking first. Who has lost his tail? 01:10, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

Invalid vote[edit]

GrainedCargo192's vote here is invalid, as his vote is stating that splitting Gummits would create stubs, despite stub pages only referring to pages that lack information, not necessarily small pages. It is not the first time were he mislabeled stubs, and he has been told before that stubs are not always small articles and vice versa. While TDA has told him that it happened a day ago and his vote has not been changed, so it may be time for it to be removed. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 12:40, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

The vote isn't invalid, but it's not correct, either. He has yet to edit the wiki after his votes on the fourth, and he still has time to remove it if he wants to. If he doesn't and the proposal passes anyway, it wouldn't matter. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:44, April 6, 2019 (EDT)
The thing that matters thought is that fact that it would most likely stall the change for two weeks: FanOfYoshi would be able to cancel the proposal and put it in to effect due to having a consensus and being consistent with the rest of the wiki if it was not for his vote which is based off a misconception that he had for a while. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 12:50, April 6, 2019 (EDT)
He's been told about how stubs work now, he wasn't then. He can chose to ignore it, in which case, he would just keep getting reminded, but he now has something to tell him that short articles don't mean stubs. Because of TDA's message, no further action needs to be taken at the moment.
I'm honestly on the fence about this proposal, seems more like a Green/Red Koopa Troopa thing to me. I think canceling should be held off. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:57, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

I wan’t to do it if yes [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 22:27, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

No. Your comment was forum talk, as in better suited to the forums rather than a wiki talk page. Waluigi Time is in the right. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:28, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

Oh ok. Thats why I wanted to make sure. [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 22:29, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

I just wish he would instead tell me [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 22:29, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

He reverted with "forum talk" in the summary. Maybe instead of going "hey man, that's not nice", could've gone with "what does forum talk mean?" Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:31, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

It is a way for people not the have info spoiled! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 12:27, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, I saw it. We don't hide spoilers, though an option to hide images so they don't load and increase some load times is interesting. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:28, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

Unblocking request[edit]

I noticed on one of your archived talk pages, a previously blocked user asked you to unblock him/her, saying that he/she knew the rules now and promised to obey them. You replied that you were going to discuss it with the other admins. However, because that user created another account while blocked, your answer was "no." If that user hadn't done that, would you have unblocked him/her? Dwhitney (talk) 13:18, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

Who knows? I don't know how that conversation would've gone, since I ended it immediately. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:19, April 7, 2019 (EDT)


And this is why you should be a burucat! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 18:25, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

Agreed. Also, it's spelled "bureaucrat". TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:25, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

"the enemy list guy"[edit]

I think that's a rash assumption, given what they did was get rid of a plural that shouldn't have been there (note it says there's only one). It could have been any random person who noticed that mistake. Is the IP in a similar range, at least? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:59, April 8, 2019 (EDT)

Yes, the IP was in a range with a few other IPs the person used. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:00, April 8, 2019 (EDT)

The proposal also said that if the content of the "notes" section wasn't specifically mentioned in the article otherwise, it should not be removed, but moved to somewhere within the article. Otherwise, we're losing information. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:29, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

I know. I'm looking over the content, but there may also be times when what's in the Notes parameter just isn't noteworthy. But if you think I missed something, you're welcome to add it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:30, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Just out of curiosity, why do you like being an admin? Dwhitney (talk) 23:00, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

I like being able to do maintenance in a community I've followed for... almost a decade now, wow. Help others with article deletions and projects that require an admin. And take care of vandals when they happen. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:05, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Stretch Guy and Melon Guy names[edit]

Hey! Can you check out if the Stretch is called "Stretch Guy", or "Melon Guy" at any point in both guides? They currently are redirects, which i use both of them. --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 13:21, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, I'll check in a bit. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:22, April 12, 2019 (EDT)
Those are both old conjecture names, I'm pretty sure. Melon Guy was merged to Stretch when it was realized they were the same thing. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:41, April 12, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, I'm only finding "Stretch". Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:44, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

Of course not!!! Its just I saw someone with cuss on there talk and I want to be sure before I give a warning!!! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 14:18, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
Also on the warning page it said that swearing is a LEVEL 2 OFFENSE. [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 14:21, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
It never said that. There is literally nothing wrong with occasional profanity as long as it is not directed at other users, discourteously used or extremely excessive. It of course depends on what profanity is used, but for the most part the above applies. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 14:23, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

From MarioWiki:Courtesy:

Swearing at other people is flaming and is unacceptable. The occasional use of profanity is allowed as long as it is not directed at another user, but it should generally be avoided. Similarly, if a user specifically requests that no profanity is used on their talk page, their wishes should be respected. You are free to use profanity in moderation in your own userspace, but if it is decided that you have overstepped the boundaries of good taste, you may be asked to tone it down.

Profanity is not allowed when directed at someone or if there is an excessive amount of it. Not really something to give a warning for either way, unless it turns into outright flaming. If anything, it'd be a userspace warning. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:24, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

Ok well should I give a reminder a userspace warning or what? There is like saying the user thinks toad is a pain in the ***. And the user also said that the user will try and hurt wario and waluigi!!! Uses cuss words at least 4 times![-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 14:28, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
Who's? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:30, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
I mean regarding profanity, I only think it's worth a warning if it's like far-out-there inappropriate, excessive, disruptive, or a personal attack on someone. Results May Vary (talk) 14:30, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

The phrase is not directed at anyone (other than Baby Mario), and she was asked to take down a whole section of content directed at other users back in 2016.

Super Smash Bros. Melee image in the gallery was missing an italics mark (which were redundant with the HTML italics anyway), and the coding was in the wrong order. It's been fixed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:58, April 15, 2019 (EDT)

RE:Personal images[edit]

The first one you can delete. The second one is used on this Mario Boards thread. I don't appear to have an attachment button when I post something on the forum so I resorted to uploading said image on the wiki and then linking to it.

Giant Donkey Kong and Edit Warring[edit]

The edit war summary was really more of a general reminder, but you sent a message before I finish the edit, so it doesn't mean anything anymore. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:40, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

Wiggler and Flutter[edit]

Merge Wiggler with Flutter? I don't think that should happen, considering they're different characters. Even though a Wiggler turns into a Flutter, I think it's better for them to have separate articles. For example, a caterpillar turns into a butterfly, but it wouldn't look good to discuss the lives of both animals on the same article, would it? (Mentioning that a caterpillar changes into something else is fine, however.) Not to mention, Flutters don't appear in every Mario game that Wigglers do. What's your opinion? Dwhitney (talk) 23:26, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

I'm already opposing the merge, but the conversation doesn't appear to be going anywhere... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:27, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

Super Mario 64 DS[edit]

The mission Big Penguin Race on the Super Mario 64 DS article says that the player shouldn't take any shortcuts, or the Penguin will disqualify them. Technically, that's not true. There's one shortcut the player can take: The player can jump over the gap right before the hidden wall shortcut (if you know what I mean), and the Penguin won't consider that cheating, as I've done a few times. I'm not sure it works in the original game. Do you think this info is relevant to be added to one of these articles? Dwhitney (talk) 21:50, April 18, 2019 (EDT)

I believe how the game knows the player takes a shortcut is because they are marked; if the player passes a certain trigger, the Big Penguin won't give the Star. Shortcuts that don't have these triggers, as in unintended shortcuts, would work I think. I drop off the ledge near the start and the race continues as normal, so it's really the tunnel that's a marked shortcut. I think that's something that can be added in a trivia. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:53, April 19, 2019 (EDT)
I seem to recall that taking the huge shortcut at the first corner (cutting out about like 50% of the slide) makes him made. That may have been removed in the DS version. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:38, April 19, 2019 (EDT)

The Health Meter in Super Mario 64 DS appears to be called the Power Meter. The Health Meter in this game and the original has "Power" above it, but can you confirm that the Health Meter is called the Power Meter in the original game? Dwhitney (talk) 12:14, April 20, 2019 (EDT)

Before I add the Power Meter name in the Super Mario 64 section on the Health Meter article, do you know if the Health Meter is called that in that game? (I would think it is.) Dwhitney (talk) 01:09, April 23, 2019 (EDT)

Darn italics error. Dwhitney (talk) 01:10, April 23, 2019 (EDT)

Shoot, weekend was very busy and I completely forgot about this. Sorry, I'll check tomorrow. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:11, April 23, 2019 (EDT)

Okay. Please let me know when you do. Dwhitney (talk) 01:14, April 23, 2019 (EDT)

The mission Behind Chain Chomp's Gate in Super Mario 64 DS is spelled "Behind Chain-Chomp's Gate," but I'm not sure if the article should be renamed because of that. Dwhitney (talk) 13:29, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

Uploading images[edit]

You said that if a user doesn't want to use the aboutfile template at all, he or she can simply remove it before uploading a file. When would you consider it acceptable to remove the aboutfile template? Dwhitney (talk) 22:30, April 19, 2019 (EDT)

Using the aboutfile template is recommended, but not required. There really isn't a good reason to remove it from a file summary after the image is uploaded, that'd be pointless. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:32, April 19, 2019 (EDT)

Super Mario Party images[edit]

Hi, what is the exact source of those? If they're images from an in-game minigame, they technically should be filed as sprites. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:09, April 24, 2019 (EDT)

I don't know, I didn't upload them. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:36, April 24, 2019 (EDT)


But despite what some people may say, 3DS and Wii U Smash are not the same game (officially the 4th and 5th, respectively), and as such, should not have conflation like that, regardless of the amount of shared assets. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:03, April 24, 2019 (EDT)

Yes, but we also cut back on the amount of Smash content we cover. The Pokemon page does not have any other 3DS screenshots, because the Wii U version shows them off just fine. We don't need multiple images of the same Pokemon here. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:09, April 24, 2019 (EDT)
It's still a different game with different models, and as such shouldn't take any less priority than having separate images for Snorlax in every other game. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:05, April 25, 2019 (EDT)
If you think we have a use for the image, I'll restore it. But I'm not finding any other 3DS Pokemon images uploaded. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:09, April 25, 2019 (EDT)


Boy, one user must've been pretty upset with you reverting his or her acts of vandalism (one of them being on the Health Meter page I'd edited), since that user created three similar accounts (one after the other), the third of which was used to blank your talk page content. I wonder if I'll have a chance to report an act of vandalism on this wiki, and if anyone else has blanked your talk page content out of upset-ness. Dwhitney (talk) 23:58, April 24, 2019 (EDT)

There was an edit war on my talk page back in 2016, but that's the only instance coming to mind. It's pretty common for vandals to be upset at the admin blocking them, for some reason. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:02, April 25, 2019 (EDT)

First of all: "Disambiguation"
Second: SMB2 doesn't need to be a disambiguation. Only two titles are called that, and one is called the Lost Levels in English.
Three: A disambiguation is really only needed when there are too many things to fit in an {{about}} template, usually four or more. SMB2 already has an about on it's page linking to Lost Levels. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:10, April 28, 2019 (EDT)

I'm not sure. These are supposed to represent both the arrow buttons and the face buttons, depending on the Joy-Con, so I can't think of an instance would you would need to refer with an image, as it wouldn't be clear which you'd be referencing. Could do "{{button|ns|Jc}} (direction buttons/face buttons)", but then might as well just write the whole thing out anyway. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:39, April 28, 2019 (EDT)

It would be, yes. I wasn't sure what you were talking about, but Tent2 explained more in Discord.

Mr. I image[edit]

Actually there is a problem. It was assembled from raw textures at their exact sizes without taking into account the fact that in-game, both are stretched by different amounts and then filtered. Ergo, it is inaccurate to their in-game appearance. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk)

Ah, I didn't know that applied to the Mr. I. Makes sense, I suppose, with the Giant Mr. I. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:43, May 2, 2019 (EDT)

The offensive word[edit]

It actually is sometimes considered to be an offensive term. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 20:17, May 4, 2019 (EDT)

Oh, interesting. Google and Wikipedia just say what it means and that it's not used anymore, but not that it's actually an offensive term. I didn't look too closely, though; one of the refs on Wikipedia says that it is, checking it again. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:23, May 4, 2019 (EDT)

Snake Blocks[edit]

For some reason, when I try to revert File:SMM2-SMB-SnakeBlock.png to its older version using the revert button next to the older version, the site does not allow the revert with it stating that "The current version of the file is already identical to the selected one.", which is not the case. May you please try? Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:25, May 5, 2019 (EDT)

It is the case. Do a hard refresh with Ctrl + F5. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:26, May 5, 2019 (EDT)
I done the refresh although the file page only shows one revision (The older one) and stats that no pages link to the file. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:30, May 5, 2019 (EDT)
Weird. I'm seeing it reverted to the previous revision and is linked on Super Mario Maker 2's page. I can't revert it again, as it already happened. Maybe exit out of your browser. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:33, May 5, 2019 (EDT)
And now the file page correctly shows three revisions and where the file links to however it shows the third revision as the older revision instead of the unofficial recreation, uploaded with the same comment and by the same uploader before the refresh. I also exited my browser, coming back with the same effect. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:36, May 5, 2019 (EDT)
Never mind, when I first tried to revert the third revision looked like the recreation due to me not doing a hard refresh, my mistake. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:39, May 5, 2019 (EDT)

Another edit revert concern again... (Princess Daisy article)[edit]

Just ran into the news that the edit that I was trying to "restore" got reverted (after someone attempted to take it out earlier because of reasoning of said details being "mentioned later in the [Princess Daisy] article"). IMHO, that part was still important to note in the Mario Party series section of the article in regards to when the current dress/overall of Daisy made its debut (although I do agree about the details of the design itself being reserved for later on in said article regarding what the designs looked like). Can you reconsider this, please? --M. C. - Profile | Talk Page 17:35, May 7, 2019 (EDT)

The information is already in her Creation and development section, though I agree that's better off in the physical description section. Only needs to be said once. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:41, May 7, 2019 (EDT)

Fan term redirects[edit]

I am sorry, but your comments here and here are trying to go against policy. While it is true that your argument about the conjectural part of the redirect policy is what most likely what the policy means, the current way that the policy is worded makes it so that Throw Block is a valid redirect that, unless the policy is changed or you have another reason for its deletion, should not be deleted. If the Throw Block redirect is deleted, then other unofficial fan name redirects such as SMO (An abbreviation that is not officially used to my knowledge) will also have to be deleted. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 16:52, May 9, 2019 (EDT)

I did not see you new edit on Pallukun's talk page when I wrote your comment, my mistake (However my arguments about why fan term redirects still stand). Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 16:55, May 9, 2019 (EDT)
I went back on the deletion line on Palluken's talk, but I think the term "conjectural" on MarioWiki:Redirects is a little vague. Abbreviations like SMO are fine, since it still stands for the game's title. But I don't think creating fan terms as redirects should be allowed.
Maybe I'll ask Porple to clarify later or a proposal or something. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:56, May 9, 2019 (EDT)
EDIT: Throw Block could actually be too general, as it can refer to any throwable block. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:00, May 9, 2019 (EDT)
Very good point. However if a fan-term redirect does not interfere with anything official or is too general, then I feel that there is no harm in having fan-term redirects as they do not affect the page itself, and a reader may only now a fan term for the subject, not its official name. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:03, May 9, 2019 (EDT)

Throw Block[edit]

I have no official source, but I figured it didn't matter since the point of a redirect is to take people to the correct page. If some people know it as Throw Block - I've seen plenty of Youtubers and Redditors, plus it's the name given to it in the SMW hack program Lunar Magic - then lots of people are going to get lost looking for nonexistent page. The redirect is just to say "that's not what it's called, but I know what you mean". When I was looking for that article, I spent half an hour because I had never heard of 'Grab' Block. Pallukun (talk) 17:21, May 9, 2019 (EDT)

Beach Bowl Images[edit]

Emulator bug vs. correct behavior based on verifying the real console. The water effect correction may be related to the developers implementing "arbitrary mipmap detection" into 5.0-5745. Above 1x native broke the intended effect otherwise. This effect is distance-dependent. Water is clear close-up while water is opaque far away. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:59, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

It's also part of the reason I was holding off mass-replacing Melty Molten Galaxy images. You can see the issue with Puzzle Plank Galaxy. I noticed this before taking pictures for Melty Monster Galaxy. The main reason was fatigue related to GCN/Wii screenshots. Dolphin just sucks at pictures in general. It's not easy to mess around with the main window. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:22, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
I do know of a capture card by Elgato, but it is very expensive, like between $100-$200. Also, The vWii is a bit blurry on Wii U. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:43, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

Future Tense[edit]

I originally removed future tense from a few articles about RPG enemies before adding it back in, thinking that future tense was categorically banned. Which leads me to ask this... what is the wiki's stance on future tense? Power Flotzo (talk) 00:54, May 11, 2019 (EDT)

Perhaps this proposal can clarify things for you. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:58, May 11, 2019 (EDT)
The sentences in question were something like "They will move from shell to shell[...]" and "If it performs X, it will aim at Mario." In case you were wondering, they were not referring to any upcoming games. Power Flotzo (talk) 01:22, May 11, 2019 (EDT)

just my two cents, but i don't think this IP meant to do bad. he may have simply confused Bullies for another enemy and, being an ultra newbie, wasn't aware that his edit was reverted by someone else and thought it simply didn't register for some reason, and that's why he added it back. i remember making the same mistake at some point, but luckily i was already signed up so i wasn't blocked instantly. even so, it took me an embarassingly long time to discover that you can leave comments to your edits. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 16:32, May 21, 2019 (EDT)

Edit request[edit]

Would you mind replacing the SSB artwork of Mario in this user's signature before this redirect gets deleted? I want to check to see if it has been completely replaced on the mainspace. Thanks in advance. Power Flotzo (talk) 02:22, May 26, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, was going to edit the sig once the file moved. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 02:24, May 26, 2019 (EDT)

Re: Infoboxes[edit]

Oh, apologizes, I wasn't aware. It's just that I already saw some Retro Courses for Mario Kart Tour's beta and I thought it was enough evidence to have it added onto the course's respective articles regarding its latest appearance, since it's very likely if you ask me, with the game being released this year in summer 2019, assuming it doesn't get delayed that is. --Jjrapper100 (talk) 21:16, May 26, 2019 (EDT)

Virtual boy wario land for 3DS[edit]

If you look at the list of unreleased media, you will find an article for a pitch to Nintendo called virtual boy wario land 3DS Lord Falafel (talk) 10:47, May 27, 2019 (EDT)

Ah. Rather than link to the original game or make a new article on an unreleased game with little information, should link to the unreleased media page instead. I'll put that back. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:50, May 27, 2019 (EDT)

The link to tennis on the Famicom leads to the warioware minigame, but it needs to be fixed to lead to the NES game Lord Falafel (talk) 17:27, May 27, 2019 (EDT)

I do not see why the user should of been blocked due to their username. While it is true that the word gay can be used offensively, it can also be used in an unoffencive manner, which may of been the intent. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:11, May 27, 2019 (EDT)

It's not the first time. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:03, May 27, 2019 (EDT)
I don't necessarily agree with those blocks either (and not all of those users were blocked for having "gay" either. There's nothing offensive about the word "gay". BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 16:14, May 27, 2019 (EDT)
Looking a bit further, it seems Gay Waluigi was unblocked as the admins at the time decided "gay" wasn't unacceptable. Doesn't look like that's the case for the Gay Luigi variants, though. I agree "gay" isn't offensive in and of itself (one of its definitions is "happy", though that's not the usual one anymore), but I guess calling a character gay when they clearly aren't is a problem? Poor Luigi.
I can ask the other admins, see what they have to say. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:19, May 27, 2019 (EDT)
I feel like in this case, it's better to wait and see what edits they make before blocking them. And...again this is the Mario series so people can have whatever canon of the characters they like. I personally think Luigi is bi myself, so yeah. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 16:23, May 27, 2019 (EDT)
As the user has been unblocked shouldn't the other users that have been blocked exclusively due to their similar usernames also be unblocked? Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:49, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
There's not really a point to that anymore, but we agreed on "gay" not being a blockable term unless obviously used in a derogatory manner. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:52, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
There is still a point to unblocking them. If you were one of those users and wanted to edit for some reason but saw that your old account was permanently blocked (If you remembered it which could be the case), then (even though they would not be blocked if they created a new account) they would think that they would never be able to edit on the site again, for something which is no longer a punishable act. Some users did not even receive the "create a new username message". It's quite unfair for them. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:57, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
"but we agreed on "gay" not being a blockable term unless obviously used in a derogatory manner." Turns out I misremembered, looking back. JC was the only one who said anything, who simply said to unblock and watch.
The blocked accounts in question are around three years old, with the ones that aren't blocked being younger than that. Chances are, they've already made a new account within that time frame. Or if they made one today, we wouldn't be able to connect them as the IPs are removed from the account after a year. Even unblocking them now and letting them know they can use the account again, they probably completely forgot about it and their password. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:08, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
That is all based off assumptions. They could of not made a new account. They could of remembered their account and password (all of their internet accounts may have the same password, or they could of wrote it down). And the connecting ip thing does not matter, as they would not be reblocked anyways as they were unfairly blocked. As it not being decided about the word gay, not only is the word often inoffensive, but keeping those users blocked because of the use of the word gay is discrimination. Which is unacceptable. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:15, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
Those bans were regrettable, but going back and unblocking a bunch of accounts that, realistically, are never gonna see use again, would be a goofy and empty gesture at best.

Keeping a bunch of accounts blocked for (yes) invalid reasons is not an endorsement of the idea banning people for having "gay" in their name was ever really an acceptable practice, but that doing it for those accounts specifically is Not Worth The Effort. If someone is serious about editing the wiki under any of those names, they can (and probably would already have) contacted us. --Glowsquid (talk) 20:03, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

Alex the Toad's ip[edit]

Regardless of access to their account or not, they committed a blockable offence, and thus should be blocked on the spot. If he was logged into his account when he done the edit he would be blocked anyways, so what is changed here? Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:16, May 27, 2019 (EDT)

I want to make sure he can actually get back into his account first. Once I have a definitive answer (either he gives an email, keeps editing with the mistakes, or manages to get back in himself), then I'll decide what to do. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:36, May 27, 2019 (EDT)
Now that he created another account, Amazing Super Toad Bros. (talk) shouldn't his new account be blocked temporarily? Just because he forgot his password does not excuse the fact the he committed a blockable offence that he did not get blocked for yet. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 20:29, May 31, 2019 (EDT)
Also, he forgot to add italics, which he got reminded about after having a last warning again. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 20:55, May 31, 2019 (EDT)

May you undo this edit? It is obviously unacceptable for user pages to be redirects, although as I am not an admin I cannot undo it. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 14:44, May 29, 2019 (EDT)

I'm not finding anything in MarioWiki:Userspace, MarioWiki:Redirects, or Help:Redirect that say a userspace can't redirect to a mainspace article, just that a mainspace article can't redirect to userspace (i.e. I can't make an Alex95 article).

User talk:FireyYoshi#Last Warning[edit]

Shouldn't his last warning have been overturned as it was issued after he was blocked during his block? He technically did not do anything for a last warning, he just done enough to progress instantly from a regular warning to a block. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:30, May 30, 2019 (EDT)

It's still valid, serving as a permanent reminder not to that collection of violations again. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:34, May 30, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, but a last warning does more than to remind a user. It affects how they get blocked. An action that would usually just grant a user a warning would instantly get them blocked even if they did not do that action before, if they have a last warning. However, if they just had a regular warning, they would just get another regular warning. So, him getting a last warning despite getting blocked beforehand without one will permanently and unfairly affect how he is blocked/warned. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:38, May 30, 2019 (EDT)
I suppose it could've been removed then, between the miscommunication of the admins. Yoshi876 was handing out the warning as I was blocking them. Then again, it doesn't really matter; if they do this stunt again, they'll just be blocked again anyway because of the information in the block log. They are on a last warning no matter what happens here. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:46, May 30, 2019 (EDT)
Yes, but what I mean is if he did not have a last warning if he, for example, enforced a proposal before it passed, he would simply get another regular warning due to it being a level two offence. However, due to his unnecessary last warning, if he done that he would be blocked instantly, despite him never doing it. As stated on the warning policy: "If you go to warn someone and find they have already been given a last warning for any issue, contact an admin, as that user most likely needs to be blocked for their latest misdemeanor." His unfair last warning will affect more that him doing that stunt: it will affect any other offence he may commit in the future. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:54, May 30, 2019 (EDT)
Alright, I get what you're saying. By this point, I certainly hope he's learned from that (it's been almost two years, after all), and I suppose the block itself was enough of a punishment. He hasn't had any major problems since, and since the warning and block came at the same time, I'll remove it. You're right, getting blocked for being on a last warning despite said warning happening during a block doesn't make sense. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:03, May 30, 2019 (EDT)

Heading text[edit]

Sorry Sorry for messing up the Mega Mushroom page. I was trying to add it's artwork from Mario Kart Tour
The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

This edit[edit]

Why did you alter that user's comment? The rules state that, per the warning policy, that you can only edit comments to fix coding and to enforce policy. Removing that part of the user's comment is like fixing other user's spelling errors in their comments. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:12, June 1, 2019 (EDT)

It was clearly intended to be the header. I could've just swapped it to be the header text instead, but I'll just put it back I guess. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png

It is not that they both start with the same regular name, it is that they both end with "crazyboy" followed by a number. Both names are spelt the same too. It is just too many coincidences to be one. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:08, June 5, 2019 (EDT)

It's also totally possible that this new person had the same idea as the first Owencrazyboy, but used a different number. I'm not the only user with "Alex" followed by a number, though Alex9S (talk) was a direct impersonator. If they start actually claiming to be Owencrazyboy9 outside of a password request, then there will be an issue. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:13, June 5, 2019 (EDT)

Should I reupload these images?[edit]

File:Super Mario 3D World Climbing Cat Mario.png and File:SM3DWgrass.png are terrible quality. However, they appear to be pre-release with a few minor differences from the current game (e.g., the sign in the background of the Cat Mario picture). Since the galleries that link to these images do not dicuss the pre-release content of these images, should I replace these images, upload new ones alongside (like we did with File:WiiU SuperMario scrn08 E3.png and File:SM3DW banzaibill.jpg), or just leave them as-is? Here are my new images for comparison: --Super Mario Fan 67 (TCS) 16:55, June 6, 2019 (EDT)

The quality isn't "terrible" in the slightest. But if they contain content that isn't in the final game, they should be kept, though moved to a pre-release content section or the List of Super Mario 3D World pre-release and unused content page. A final version should be uploaded separately and replace them in the gallery/articles. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:58, June 6, 2019 (EDT)
Ok, done. Thanks! --Super Mario Fan 67 (TCS) 17:58, June 6, 2019 (EDT)

Hard Time[edit]

Hi Alex, it's RMV. I'm having a really hard time at the moment, and I have difficulty with collaborating with others.

I know. I realize that I have some responsibilities, such as managing Jiggywikki to coincide with the Smash Ultimate hype. There would be no time to act immature and upset, especially as a committed editor. I need to stay on the right path with people & not be angry at others. Quite a few consequences can stem from that, and ultimately nobody is happy; all we want to do is edit a wiki without the drama. (p.s. can be a redirect domain to if ever the time comes -- i just personally need my own sandbox wiki for now).

In regards to the recent move...[edit]

The file move of Shieragutchi WL4 to WL4-Shieragucchi Sprite was not really to specify whether or not it was a sprite, but rather because the original file misspelled Shieragucchi (as Shieragutchi). Trig - 21:21, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

Hey! Since this proposal failed, can you undelete Template:Octogoombas? It has an important history IIRC. --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 02:43, June 15, 2019 (EDT)

That template was literally just the cateogy in template form, it was only on around five pages. Not worth keeping. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:40, June 15, 2019 (EDT)
I remember there being a split between the bosses and species, making it not just a category in template form. Plus there would be seven pages on the template (five species two bosses) and the template avoided Template:Goombas from being too crowded as if the template does not return the Octoombas will have to go on that template. So it is worth keeping. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 16:43, June 15, 2019 (EDT)
As a matter of fact, not all of them count as Goombas, and the ones that do are debatable anyways. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:00, June 15, 2019 (EDT)

The template is not exclusively useful for that reason alone. The template is also useful to help readers go between related articles quickly in one spot. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:26, June 15, 2019 (EDT)
I agree with Doomhiker. We're starting to miss the point of navigation boxes: they are meant to make navigation easier. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 17:31, June 15, 2019 (EDT)

Well, this was a number of notifications.
Like Doomhiker said, there were only seven articles in the template. Navigation templates are meant to help with a large number of articles, a simple way of navigating between them. Seven articles is not a lot, navigation can be done through the category easily and it is immediately noticible what they all are and what their roles are. There's no hard limit on how many entries should be in a navigation template, but less than ten doesn't seem like a good number to me. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:24, June 15, 2019 (EDT)
