  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.
  6. I'm a friendly guy and am willing to engage in friendly conversation, so long as the sections don't become too excessive.
  7. I will archive once this talk page reaches 100 messages. Please do not make any message telling me to archive. It's a waste of a notification, and it will be removed.
  8. I welcome friendship, but only if I know you well enough.
  9. Unless it's an important response you should know about or if I started the conversation on your page, I will respond here.
  10. Have fun!


Luigi artwork[edit]

Okay, that's fine, but why is Mario's front artwork being changed consistently for each new game released? Let me guess, it's for the exact same reasons you told me, right? All right, then. I just wanted the artwork changed, because we've already had it for a while now. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:17, 23 November 2017 (EST)

Signature Reminder Overturn[edit]

Okay, come on, why did you overturn my reminder there? It was just a polite reminder, and nothing else. I had good reason to be concerned, right? Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:16, 4 December 2017 (EST)

It is undeserved as his edit count shows he edits mainspace more, and his edits to the signature are scattered enough to not be an issue. He does tend to edit his userspace a lot, but it really becomes a problem if it's consistent and/or his focus (i.e. more edits to userspace than mainspace). Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:23, 4 December 2017 (EST)
Okay, are you sure that is a good enough response? I'm sorry for being nitpicky, but just as a notable fact, I don't like repeated responses. But fine, you can go on and have fun with your life now. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:25, 4 December 2017 (EST)
For this specific reason, the reminder is undeserved. However, if he neglects to fix the name on his signature after a few days as I told him to do so, a reminder can be issued for that as that is in violation. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:33, 4 December 2017 (EST)
Okay. Sorry for being nitpicky, by the way. It can cause a lot of trouble at the wrong times if it's not managed carefully. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:35, 4 December 2017 (EST)

Mario Party series game order[edit]

In case you forgot, here is the order of all the Mario Party games: Mario Party, Mario Party 2, Mario Party 3, Mario Party 4, Mario Party 5, Mario Party 6, Mario Party Advance, Mario Party 7, Mario Party 8, Mario Party DS, Mario Party 9, Mario Party: Island Tour, Mario Party 10, and Mario Party: Star Rush. You don't have to make too much of this, it is just a friendly reminder since you seemed to slip up there a little bit. Don't worry, I'll tell everyone else too on the talk page.

I'm not the one running Userpedia. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:26, 11 December 2017 (EST)


I was wondering if Super Mario Odyssey official was called music in game, and if so than why do you think Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions music should be listed as media (as it is called "MUSIC" when accessing it). And do you think we should add a media template to List of Super Mario Odyssey music page (no matter what's decided)? Also, I am contacting the user that made the page. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 11:58, 11 December 2017 (EST)

Marachi Guy edit[edit]

I think the IP address was typing about the Sombrero Guys that appear in Paper Jam. I'm not sure if it's redundant or not, because we have this information on the Sombrero Guy article and I'm pretty sure it doesn't need a repeat on the Marachi Guy page. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 11:18, 12 December 2017 (EST)

Is the Sombrero Guy the only one of the Marachi Guys that appears? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:21, 12 December 2017 (EST)
From watching videos on YouTube of both Colour Splash and Paper Jam, it is the only one. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 11:31, 12 December 2017 (EST)
Then just the info on Sombrero Guy should be sufficient enough. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:32, 12 December 2017 (EST)

Bowser: A Good Leader or not?[edit]

Hey, how you doing, and have I got a question for you. Do you think Bowser is a good leader of the Koopa Troop and of his soldiers and his kingdom in general? Also, why was my edit on the List of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions music article reversed? Anyway, I hope you're doing well. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:49, 12 December 2017 (EST)

I know he definitely cares for his troops, but he may not be the smartest leader in the world. And having tennis matches with your nemesis may help with troop moral :P As for your edit, you appear to already be talking about it with Owencrazyboy9 (talk). Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:53, 12 December 2017 (EST)
Yeah, but I don't exactly understand why he reversed it still. He said that the remake's song names are what are supposed to be put in the boxes, but why can't I put in the original's song names as well? After all, it might as well be called "List of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga music"; either way, I want to put in the original names in the boxes too, and I don't get what the problem is with that. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:58, 12 December 2017 (EST)
A List of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga media page would probably work better for the original tracks. If the remakes song names are what's in the game, then that's what should be used for the Bowser's Minions page. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:21, 12 December 2017 (EST)
Are you sure about that? That sounds redundant when the two games, which are pretty much the same game, have the exact same soundtrack, putting aside the remixes and stuff. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:23, 12 December 2017 (EST)
Honestly not sure. But again, if the name in the remake is different than the original, the remake's name is used because that's what the page is based on. With the original tracks a part of the game, once they're uploaded, a track list for the original game can be discussed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:30, 12 December 2017 (EST)
The only difference (in terms of in-game names) for the same song in the original and the remake is an added DX with the exception of two songs: "To Challenge!" to "Let's Kick it into High Gear" and "It's My Turn" to "Star 'Stache Smash!". There are more differences between the songs, but you know they are the same song. In terms of what they were once called, hey songs change names even in the same series. I know there are a few songs in Paper Jam that uses the same music from Dream Team. And the song "Let's Go (DX)" in the game is named "Come On!" in Paper Jam. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 22:46, 12 December 2017 (EST)
But still, why are we only focusing on the remake names and not the original names as well? I'm not asking for one or the other, I am asking for both of the names. Why can't we have both of them? Or how about this, why didn't we have a "List of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga music" article in the first place for both the original and remake names? That is the question I am asking, why are we all of a sudden focused on the remake without paying any attention to the original? Let me guess, you just answered my question for me. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:53, 12 December 2017 (EST)
One, it is in-game names in the remake. Two, using the remake in the name is necessary due to it being only in the remake and having songs of the remake. Three, I guess they could have alternate names so long as they are officially known. If not, then don't add it. However, since the remake songs are lower on the page, don't do it like you did, but, instead, mention the alternative names like (this was originally called "Come On!") for Let's Go. But, don't do it to the remake songs as they don't have previous names. This can't be done if a Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga media page is created. However, I strongly advice against this as it will be against Once and only once policy. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 23:09, 12 December 2017 (EST)


That means "second from final," not "secondary." Just clearing that up. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:39, 13 December 2017 (EST)

I looked it up after I used it. I guess I did know what it meant at first, but I doubted myself :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:53, 13 December 2017 (EST)

Quote Change[edit]

Well, thanks, buddy, that was really appreciated. Okay, enough with the sarcasm, isn't Luigi as silent as Mario in the Super Mario series and all other games except the Paper Mario series? I'm not counting Fortune Street for anything, but in all Mario sub-series except Paper Mario, isn't Luigi as silent as Mario? I'll give you the edge for the Paper Mario series, but I still think he deserves to have a "silent" quote. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:35, 14 December 2017 (EST)

By "discussed" I meant on Luigi's talk page, but whatever.
Aside from the Mario & Luigi series (where he and Mario talk in gibberish) and the Fortune Street series (where he and Mario talk in full sentences), Luigi is more talkative than Mario in just about every game they both appear in and where they talk. Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 has Luigi talking to Mario (and himself), he's very talkative in Luigi's Mansion (as can be seen with the Game Boy Horror, though barely anything in Dark Moon). No one talks much in sports games, but overall, Luigi is much more talkative than Mario is. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:39, 14 December 2017 (EST)
Uh...I'm not so convinced, because I meant for the most part, but I guess I will meet you on the Luigi talk page. I've got a nice, sweet proposal coming up, or maybe not, but yeah, I still think he's as silent as Mario, if only a little bit more talkative. It's not that much of a difference, just a little. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:43, 14 December 2017 (EST)


Hi, shouldn't you have revoked this IP's talk page access as well, since that's the only page they've extensively edited? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 13:59, 18 December 2017 (EST)

I believe that's only an option for accounts, not anonymous users, as it's not giving me that option. They appear to be blocked from editing in general. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:05, 18 December 2017 (EST)


Okay, got it. I recreated the page because it felt inconsistent with every other level's name and article, and so I wanted to keep the consistency, but fine, whatever works is whatever works. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 00:06, 19 December 2017 (EST)

RE: Thanks[edit]

HDMI is better than analog interfaces (such as RCA cables) because it is digital, so no artifacts. Keep in mind that Retron consoles are reverse engineered counterparts of the official console it is based on, so mistakes could occur at runtime that would otherwise not happen on official hardware. This will likely not happen with popular titles because they are so commonly tested but more obscure titles could showcase a bug with the console. I still hope one day you are able to solve your emulator problems. If only I can see what you see, so then I can start tinkering to fix your issues. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 10:46, 21 December 2017 (EST)

3DS, there is an emulator, but it is not worth looking into. Many graphical glitches and some games refuse to boot. Same goes for the Wii U emulator as well. It also has a steep PC requirements. However, how I submitted my screenshots for 3DS, homebrew, not emulators. Anything analog, there is some degradation. It's one reason why digital signal alternatives were developed. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:16, 21 December 2017 (EST)

I see some files. Are they from an emulator? If so, why is it coming out as JPEG? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:28, 16 March 2018 (EDT)

I thought that the Retron was for consoles, not handhelds. I guess you learn something new everyday, huh? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 11:11, 17 March 2018 (EDT)

What do you mean?[edit]

in Bin page, there's a Megaman text on trivia. Lucina SSB4.pngMusic Video 123 (talk) 10:56, 22 December 2017 (EST)

Currently a citation needed, and LinkTheLefty is the one who added the information, so I'll contact him and see what he's able to find. Otherwise, the trivia is pointless. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:14, 22 December 2017 (EST)


I must have relayed that idea from Fizzle here. It's plausible, but you're right. It's also unlikely to ever have an official source backing it up. Feel free to remove it. LinkTheLefty (talk) 12:42, 22 December 2017 (EST)

Not in Mario 64, right? As far as I know, he only performs the pose in Mario Odyssey. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 23:21, 26 December 2017 (EST)

It's in Super Mario 64. If Mario performs the Triple Jump and doesn't move upon landing, he'll have his arms outstretched and cheers. You can kind of see it in the middle pic on the Triple Jump page. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:23, 26 December 2017 (EST)

Ouch, he used the darn N-word? Uh oh, that's not good. That's just racist and dumb. Gotta watch out for that. I was going to undo his ugliness, but you did it for me anyway. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:21, 28 December 2017 (EST)

Please stop talking about vandals unless you're reporting them. There's no point to bringing them up after they've been dealt with. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:24, 28 December 2017 (EST)
This was racism, so that's why I'm talking about it. If you see what's happening around the world, you would know why I'd be a little on edge about that. Other vandals weren't racist, so I didn't mention them. But anyway, ignore my rambling and go on with your life as you wish. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:28, 28 December 2017 (EST)

Regarding said edit on the Princess Daisy gallery page[edit]

Hey, Alex95, I noticed you still undid my edit on the Gallery: Princess Daisy page - why is that? The reason I took that out was because the said art in question itself is the same from what we saw for Mario Party 10 (which has now become her "standard" as of late). Let me know really soon, thanks. --M. C. - Profile | Talk Page 08:47, 5 January 2018 (EST)


So, was it not okay for me to post that [Kojo proposal] on the main page? I'd have thought that something like deciding whether or not a game should be covered at all would be prominent enough for the main page. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 19:03, 5 January 2018 (EST)

I was referring to the previous proposal as an example, but okay then. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 19:07, 5 January 2018 (EST)

Does this also apply to proposals involving games that are listed on List of Mario references in Nintendo video games? Hello, I'm Time Turner. 14:25, 7 January 2018 (EST)

Star colors[edit]

Are you sure? It can't be. I learned science, and I know my science teacher would say that blue and green are the warm colors. Art class is not a reliable source for determining the colors of stars and how hot they must be. I might search it up on Google, though. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:38, 6 January 2018 (EST)
Also, science isn't really the place to go for art advice. In terms of fire, blue would be hot (because fire), but otherwise, it's a cool color. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:41, 6 January 2018 (EST)
This isn't art we're talking about, this is science. Stars aren't art, they're science, and science says, blue is warm and red is cool. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:56, 6 January 2018 (EST)
I am so unfocused right now. I misunderstood the point. My bad.
While there are varying degrees of fire, there isn't one you could really classify as "cool". This is fire after all. Blue is definitely hotter than red, though. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:02, 6 January 2018 (EST)

SMB3 Sky Land[edit]

Hey Alex, do you have the original version? Because I tried it on the All Star Versions (Wii, but should be the same) and that's not the case. It is the case before you changed it. So, unless you can prove that it is that way in the original, we should have the one before you change it. If it is that way, both should be mentioned. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 12:14, 10 January 2018 (EST)

I remember going back and forth on the Tower to see if I had to go through the whole thing in the Advance version, though tbh, my memory is blurred, so I'll double check. Don't currently have access to the original or All-Stars version, so maybe I can find a video on those. If not, it may take a while. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:17, 10 January 2018 (EST)
I don't remember much of the play I did for Advance, but I'm pretty sure that it is the same as All Star Version I tested it on. Which, you have to replay the level again if you go back to the ground, but if you go to the Pipe/Tower by mistake, you can fall down and go back to the sky with the cost of a life. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 12:22, 10 January 2018 (EST)
Okay, double checked Advance and it looks like my memory has failed my. The Warp Pipe from the sky takes you to a small segment, but you have to replay the Tower from the ground. Apologies, I will change it back. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:30, 10 January 2018 (EST)


Whoa, I really like what you just added to your User Page. Would you mind if I steal your idea and use it on mine as well? DKPetey99.pngDKPetey99TCE

Re:Character Categories[edit]

From what I can glean from the pages, they aren't actually characters, hence why I'm swapping in the general tags (since the games don't have specific species categories). Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:07, 11 January 2018 (EST)

I'll defer to your logic, then. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:12, 11 January 2018 (EST)

Legend of Zelda[edit]

I know "the" is part of the title, but a phrase like "the first The Legend of Zelda game" doesn't sound right imo. That's why I thought it should just be omitted. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:57, 12 January 2018 (EST)

idk, even if it's grammatically correct, some instances of English will always sound weird to me. "The first Legend of Zelda" and "The first The Legend of Zelda" both sound correct to me, as "Legend of Zelda" is a shorter form whereas "The" is actually in the title. I guess it's just a matter of personal preference, but then the edits could cycle back and forth if it is. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:51, 12 January 2018 (EST)


Hey just out of curiosity, I remember there being a special page that like ranked everyone's contribution scores per week and month (and I think all time, too). Do you know why it was deleted, I used to enjoy looking at that page. It's fine if you do not know I was just wondering. DKPetey99.pngDKPetey99TCE

I don't recall such a page existing, and I'm not finding it in SpecialPages. It sounds similar to something Gamepedia and Wikia does, but it doesn't seem useful, so it was probably deleted for that reason. I see you contacted Gamefreak75 (talk) about this already, they would know more about this than I do. Otherwise, Porplemontage (talk) would know more.

On the wiki, I see articles that say that New Super Mario Bros. U, and to a lesser extent, New Super Luigi U, is the sequel to New Super Mario Bros. Wii, like Mario Bros 2 is the sequel to Mario Bros 1. Is this true, and has anyone confirmed it? Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:57, 16 January 2018 (EST)


I still have plenty more to add, but my computer started to slow down so I posted what I have just in case :P. DKPetey99.pngDKPetey99TCE

Citation needed on Nintendo Power[edit]

I don't know. I got the information from other pages in the wiki itself, not the Nintendo Power issues themselves. It's unfortunate because I really think that Wario is Mario and Luigi's cousin. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:47, 17 January 2018 (EST)

We'll have to wait for someone else to find the issue then. What other pages did you find the info on? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:49, 17 January 2018 (EST)
I found it on the Wario article right here, in the relationships section. You will find it somewhere there. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:53, 17 January 2018 (EST)
Perhaps I'll look through what I have sometime and see what I can find. Might be in a guide somewhere. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:56, 17 January 2018 (EST)

RE:Userpage transclusion[edit]

I knew as soon as I saw I had a message that it had to be about that. Darn. I actually felt kind of smart for once in my life. Okay, I'll go ahead and take it down, butI'll look into this matter a bit more. This kind of thing is useful for people like me with insanely long userbox towers, so I want to know the details. Anyway, thanks for the alert.

RE:M+RKB Buttons[edit]

As for the manual descriptions, I'm fine if they're added on, as long as they as are added along with the descriptions the wiki provides, since sometimes (not saying these descriptions have too many errors, but) official descriptions can have mistakes as to what they describe. As for the images, no, that actually violates consistency, and it's just easier to use {{button}} since the template's more versatile and can handle some situations that the button images can't. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 17:14, 23 January 2018 (EST)

I never said I thought they would be used on every page. Like I said, it's easier to use the {{button}} template, not just for versatility, but also for consistency with other articles. Plus, there's no policy that explicitly states that manual or in-game entries can be used by themselves when used to define things like controls; they usually need informative text to go along with it.

Hudson Mario Sourcing[edit]

Just wanted to ask about sourcing direct developer information. As you can see here: I've been able to get information about version releases from Imatani San, a guy who worked on ads for Hudson during the development of their Mario games. So far, he has told of the existence and planning of other versions of the games, their release months (though a bit questionable, as I explain), and more information is still to come. My question is, how do I source this information, once it's confirmed completely by Imatani? Mariomaster86 (talk) 12:19, 25 January 2018 (EST)

Castle Tree[edit]

According to the textures resource, that is actually how they appear in the game's files. Also, I assume you meant "fat" not "flat," because it's obviously a texture.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:02, 26 January 2018 (EST)

That's how the texture actually is? Well, then that means that the texture is stretched vertically in the game. Like, compare the texture to the tree in this screenshot. Weird. And by "flat" I meant like "squished". Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:09, 26 January 2018 (EST)
See for yourself. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:14, 26 January 2018 (EST)
That 1-Up Mushroom XD
Wow, I didn't realize what sort of tricks the devs use for textures. Making the coins grey and just applying a colored texture over them is neat, but stretching a tree and shrinking a mushroom seem like unnecessary steps, imo. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:18, 26 January 2018 (EST)
They give them more detail for a smaller space. Due to the facts that each point on these graphics no longer occupies just a single point on the screen, as they can be squashed, stretched, and rotated at will, technically all the "tall"-looking ones are stretched in the final. It gives them detail without taking up as much space as having them be twice that size, which would use more memory. Also, this was one of the first times, so, it makes sense...while you're at it, check out how they did the Thwomps in Mario Kart 64 here. And yes, note the complete lack of a green variant, although it was verified it was just the lamp discoloring it when an old emulator I was using to play without a TV glitched and gave the Thwomps weird textures on the sides, and they were all tinted yellow for that specific Thwomp... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:24, 26 January 2018 (EST)
So it was all due to detail. That's interesting! Pretty cool to see what skills devs and artists used to get the most out of the system. I wonder what I'm able to pull off with RPG Maker... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:33, 26 January 2018 (EST)

Well, the original SMB and the Lost Levels, Super Mario Land, and NSMBDS didn't feature flight powerups and they aren't neccessary as not all 2D Mario platformers have to have them. The Fire Flower has been the common staple since SMB1. Flight powerups were introduced in SMB3 and SMB2 was released before SMB3. Shooting projectiles is the common staple, not flight power-ups.-- 18:54, 11 March 2018 (EDT)

The Fire Flower is used as an example as it is the most prominent projectile power-up as it was intoduced in SMB1. It's not meant to be vague.-- 19:21, 11 March 2018 (EDT)

There are exclusions added such as being strictly focused on the 2D Super Mario games and not the 3D ones which are different. Every 2D Mario platformer has an invincibility powerup. The biggest problem though is that SMB2 was released before SMB3 and SMB3 is next title so it wouldn't feel right to include flight power-ups on an article that talks about a game prior to SMB3.-- 20:32, 11 March 2018 (EDT)

While they are certainly a different thing, the fact that "it's a lightning-based thingy that shrinks your opponents" is too similar to be coincidental, so it must be a reference. Can you name a single other instance of lightning causing that effect in any franchise? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:09, 15 March 2018 (EDT)

I suggest you look at their tattle. It's pretty blatant, particularly when O'Chunks mentions them later. Of course, it could be a Woolseyism thing. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:49, 15 March 2018 (EDT)

"Some say it comes from elsewhere" implies they have butts, not that they look like one. What does O'Chunks say? Okay, didn't notice the trivia at first. Heh, alright, but the original wording is still funny to me. Saying they are "Apparently based on a pair of buttocks" sounds speculative. Do you have a better wording in mind? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:53, 15 March 2018 (EDT)
They don't need to be implied to look like butts when they do, and gas is coming from between the....indented area. Anyways, I think that noting the implication of Tippi's comment at the end of the current trivia might work. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:00, 15 March 2018 (EDT)

"Super Mario Maker is not part of the main series"[edit]

It is according to the official Mario Portal. Which is the same main source we use to say that the first Yoshi's Island game isn't. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:16, 21 March 2018 (EDT)

Well, we don't usually list it as such. Not even on the Super Mario (series) page. Though the source we have on that seems to be outdated... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:20, 21 March 2018 (EDT)
It, the "Land" games, and Run should really be listed as part of the main series, instead of arbitrarily referred to as "secondary" games. It's pretty obvious the reason that the "Land" games weren't included in the 25th anniversary list is that the items were given commentary by Miyamoto, Kondo, and Tezuka (if memory serves me correctly), who were not on the team who made the "Land" games. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:28, 21 March 2018 (EDT)

Daisy's Amount of Appearances[edit]

You and that other user are coming up with these arguments about how we don't say something like this for other characters as a defense against the information. But you can't apply this statement to other characters, that's why it's noteworthy to Daisy. Daisy appearing in so many video-games, especially with so many playable appearances, and being a female character, is the kind of thing they put in the Guinness world record books. They may have even done so for Peach already if I recall. UhHuhAlrightDaisy (talk) 14:40, 22 March 2018 (EDT)

Uh, Peach has appeared in 97, actually. That's 17 more than Daisy, so that is no meager amount, comparatively. It's odd to me you're now saying, "That's Peach. This is Daisy. Comparing the amount of games Daisy is in to Peach's amount of appearances is unnecessary," when your main argument against this was how we could then say this type of thing for other characters, but we couldn't, anyway. Daisy is the one female video-game character in the world with the most video-game appearances... aside from Peach. If someone were to figure out Mario has the most appearances of any character, that's one thing. If someone wants to state Peach actually has the most, that's another. If Luigi had the most aside from Mario, that's significant, too. I agree if you're going to try to say something outlandish like, "Yoshi has the most appearances of any video-game dinosaur," that's random and not significant. Culture regards female videogame characters to an obviously different regard. It's significant to Daisy because there are no other female characters aside from the obvious, Peach. It's not focusing on comparing her to Peach, though, so I don't know why you're focusing in on this in regards to other characters. From the start this has been about information about Daisy. We clearly don't agree. I clearly am not about to get the other user to agree with me. However, " With the frequent release of Mario installments, Daisy has been in over 60 video games so far, the most of any female character besides Princess Peach." I feel like this information is still fine, then, aside from the last part we disagree about. Is there actually anything wrong with stating how many games she's been in so far? UhHuhAlrightDaisy (talk) 15:24, 22 March 2018 (EDT)
"In that case, maybe say the correct number then? "80" is more than "60" after all." I don't follow? What are you getting those numbers from? "Pauline, Birdo, Wendy O. Koopa, female Piantas, female Nokis, Rosalina, Hariet. And that's not including the spin-off titles." No other female characters with that many appearances, obviously. Not even just Mario characters, either. All video game characters. "She has a name, you know. No need to be rude." That's not me being rude, that's me not recalling that other user's name. No need to micromanage intentions like that. "Why don't we put how many games every character has been in on their pages? In theory, it seems like good information to have in an infobox section maybe, but again, it should be discussed." That part of it is simple information that would be a part of her intro section. It doesn't have to be some approved guideline followed on everyone's page. It could be, and like you said that could be a good thing. I'm not here to start a proposal to reformat the wiki. I used to do that all the time and it's always more trouble than it's worth. Like you said, that part of it doesn't seem to be a problem, and as that's not what that other user kept focusing in on, either, hopefully it's fine that I add it back in without the latter part you two have focused in on so intently.

I want to help by pointing out some pages that have more information or better information on the DKWiki than their Mario Wiki counterparts have: Bonus Level, Funky's Fishing and Crosshair Cranky. But what's going to become of pages that are equally good between sites? It would be a pity to simply destroy them.

Yo, Alex95; I just noticed that you reverted another legitimate edit of mine again on the Princess Daisy article.

This is a one time deal. It won't be done again. Since userpages are protected by other users, I'm shocked that I can't delete my own pages too, just to save the hassle. When the page I created does get deleted, it will delete records in Special:RecentChanges, so there is benefit to creating a new page. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:32, 30 March 2018 (EDT)

RE:Helicopter "Yoshi"[edit]

Yeah, but this had a pass last year, no? Anyway, got it. Won't happen again. -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 14:47, 1 April 2018 (EDT)

What you said is completely understandable. After I made that joke, I told Glowsquid about it on the forum because I wanted to assure control over it. I knew there was a possibility other users would joke around in the main space too, and I wanted to avoid taking part in a fiasco that would had hurt the wiki's April Fools tradition. I think the notice at the top of the page should read "Please refrain from editing main space articles." next year! -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 15:28, 1 April 2018 (EDT)


Can non-Pie-related joke proposals be archived?

No, sorry. Pie proposals have a history with the site, so I think ones made by admins (specifically Ghost Jam (talk)) are archived. The others were more of a "let the users mess around" kind of thing. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:42, 2 April 2018 (EDT)
That's what I figured. Pie must be remembered and honored. Thanks.

NIWA Links[edit]

Since Donkey Kong: Banana Kingdom‎ and Donkey Kong: Jungle Fever‎ are also covered on DKWiki, I would think they would want an article on Triforce, since they are covering other hardware. Maybe editors are unaware or don't want it? You are a member there. See what they think. Same goes for Rumble Pak on LylatWiki and MetroidWiki. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 13:57, 3 April 2018 (EDT)

Given dkwiki:Forum:Merge_with_Super_Mario_Wiki, it seems pretty academic... - Reboot (talk) 13:58, 3 April 2018 (EDT)
  1. Maybe, but the "If the page exists or is a wanted page on another wiki" line makes the link there from here unnecessary.
  2. The DKWiki is currently undergoing a discussion on merging with the Super Mario Wiki. Until a decision is reached (looking positive at the moment), I don't think anymore pages should be added.
Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:59, 3 April 2018 (EDT)
It would be kind of sad that DKWiki close up shop. I hope it doesn't, which it sounds like it won't, based on Alex95's reaction. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:06, 3 April 2018 (EDT)

Hey, congratulations on the promotion! Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:15, 4 April 2018 (EDT)

Yeah. comgrats!!!! King boo dsfs.pngMKDSFTalk!King boo dsfs.png

I add myself too! You surely deserve it, considering what you've done here and the experience you have with the other wikis too (I am still amazed by how many things you manage to do!)!--Mister Wu (talk) 10:10, 4 April 2018 (EDT)

Frankly, I'm not surprised. Considering your dedication and everything you've done to improve the wiki, it was only a matter of time. Congratulations, Administrator Alex!

I marked that talk page for deletion at the exact moment that you deleted it. Spooky. :O

Blank Pages[edit]

Sorry about that.... but it didn't have a discussion page, and I didn't know how to add a topic to it without creating the page first.....Pikmin theories (talk) 13:54, 5 April 2018 (EDT)

IP range[edit]

On a side note, for the IPv4 range you just blocked, wouldn't it be better to narrow the range down just to The "Enemies" section falsifier seems to be limited to just that range. Just a thought. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 15:30, 5 April 2018 (EDT)

No other account came up in the range check other than the other IP that was used a few days ago. So I don't see a need to narrow it down. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:32, 5 April 2018 (EDT)
It looks like Mario jc did it nonetheless. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 22:30, 5 April 2018 (EDT)

Fake Bowser edit[edit]

They were most certainly referring to Blue Bowser, a separate entity (usually). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:06, 6 April 2018 (EDT)

Aprwill you send me your sections[edit]

Artwork - WARP PIPE (Simple).svg Hi, Alex95! Artwork - WARP PIPE (Simple).svg
This is your cue to get your sections done and sent to me through our forums by April 14th. If you can't make the deadline and you have a valid reason for doing so, get in touch with me as soon as you can and we'll work it out.

Also, be careful to keep a copy of your work saved with you, either on your forum outbox or saved to your own devices. If you need to know anything else, hit me up! I'll try and answer any question you have.

Red Bob-ombs[edit]

With the exception of Super Mario Galaxy 2, Bob-omb Buddies have never been red, and always bright pink, and SMG2 itself is a borderline case. Anyways, they're always helpful NPCs and never enemies. This seems more like a case similar to the smaller, keyless Bob-ombs (which were purple in remakes) from SMB3, ie a simple color differentiation that's not intended to link to other games. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:46, 9 April 2018 (EDT)

Found a bit on TSR here, and adjusted to say "Unspecified magenta Bob-ombs." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:29, 10 April 2018 (EDT)
They're in a "miscellaneous" section, and look much different from other sprites (for instance they are much bigger), so I'm not sure if those are for gameplay or something else, myself. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:17, 10 April 2018 (EDT)
