Aboutfile Warning[edit]

Hello, Andymii. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly use the {{aboutfile}} template. What you were doing looks like this, and it is an inconvenience for other users to fix up the template. It is simple to learn how to format it correctly. The pre-loaded coding is shown below.

{{aboutfile
|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|3=Artist
|4=Describe edits, if any
|5=Other versions (use file link)
}}

Just replace the necessary parts with that corresponding information, and remove the entire line of the variable(s) you don't use. If you do not wish to use the template at all, then it is acceptable to simply remove it before you upload the file. Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Please add information into the aboutfile, blank it if you don't know. It's Peanut Butter Yoshi Time.gifBoo4761 (talk) (edits)

Your article[edit]

Hi there, great work with your Cold Water page, but if you are unsure of how to make the image display, please ask an experienced user who can explain so you don't flood the recent changes, thanks.

Welcoming users[edit]

When users join, the wiki automatically generates the Welcome template for them (it's just temporary), and we don't actually encourage users to welcome new accounts en masse anymore (to cut down on wasted time and space). If someone's sticking around or you need to contact them anyway, it's fine, but if they just made one or two edits, don't bother. - Walkazo 22:42, 24 January 2015 (EST)

'Shroom Idea[edit]

One of the ideas you mentioned on the Main Page discussion isn't part of Community Report, and it seemed a decent idea for a section. This would be the "Recently Created Articles", listing all articles (you can avoid redirects) created in the past month. If you wish to do this section, it falls under Pipe Plaza jurisdiction so PM me an application. Yoshi876 (talk)

Thanks[edit]

Apologies for being late on getting reminders out, it's been a little hectic of a month. I need your sections in by the 19th, please, as the issue comes out the 21st! Thank you! Palkia47 (talk)

Guess Who[edit]

Yo, just popping in to let you know I guessed all the characters in your quiz correctly. However, I'd also like to say you got mixed up on Bowser's voice being Boo's voice sped up. It's actually Boo who is a sped-up version of Bowser's voice. Anyway I doubt I'd be able to guess all of them without being the Mario RPG fanatic that I am. Good job. --Fawful-PIT.gifFawfulthegreat64Logo.png 16:18, 21 February 2015 (EST)

Hello, this is Warioad checking in to say that I knew all the characters in this month's section without looking at the answers. Warioad (talk) 16:49, 25 February 2015 (EST)

Got them all right! First three were easy, I knew it was someone from Paper Mario and process of elimination helped for Goombario, and Bowser was helped by the ally part.Mkbw50 (talk) 19:59, 15 March 2015 (EDT)

Grammar Police[edit]

I noticed you said you are a grammar police user on the main talk page. Would you like to add a userbox about it? I have one you can use, or you can make your own. If you would like mine, you can copy and paste it off my userpage, or I will put its code in here for you. Warioad (talk) 15:50, 22 March 2015 (EDT)

I thought I said you could in my initial comment, but yes. Would you like me to give you the code or would you rather copy and paste it off my userpage yourself? Warioad (talk) 17:12, 23 March 2015 (EDT)

Hey there! I have an idea for next time! It is going to be Mario Kart characters and here are my clues that lead to Lakitu:

  1. He has a cloud with a smile.
  2. He carries a traffic light to signal when to begin racing.
  3. He is one of the playable characters in MK7 and MK8

RE: 'Shroom Spotlight request[edit]

Not for the next issue, I'm afraid, I have already received a request for the rewrite tag for that issue. I can't use it for July either, as what with it being the Special Issue I do already have some plans for that one. However, I can include it for the August issue if that is alright with you?

About the Poll Committee Application[edit]

Hi Andymii, I fell on the subject by chance and it interests me. I want to know how and where to send the sample of the poll that I create myself. Thanks helping me!!--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 23:27, 13 December 2015 (EST)

I send it on the forum, i just wanted to know if you received it correctly.--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 16:57, 14 December 2015 (EST)

JPEG Woes[edit]

You are likely experiencing EXIF problems, the metadata that JPEGs use. I think web browsers don't read that data or don't factor it when displaying the final image. I think you are performing Lossless Rotation. Real rotation can cause JPEG artifacts to intensify because of its lossy compression algorithm. Save to PNG, although the images will be bigger in file size. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 20:22, 26 December 2015 (EST)

On your Guess Who section in Issue 105 of The 'Shroom[edit]

I have to tell you that even if you didn't distinguish between "didn't" and "did not", the last question in the aforementioned section would have been ambiguous as that would have meant there would have been two answers. As it is (you distinguished between "didn't" and "did not") you could swap them around and get that the Ice Flower didn't appear in Super Mario Galaxy while the Penguin Suit did not appear in Super Mario Galaxy. And that's it.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Technogeekz (talk).

Wii U Images[edit]

Lately I have been working on a page about uploading good screenshots and learned that it is possible to use the Wii U's built-in web browser to upload screenshots to MarioWiki directly instead of using Miiverse. See here. I bring it up because you recently uploaded File:MK8 Shell Glitch.jpeg; a 800x450 image. You can just select Upload a new version of this file without needing to make edits to the pages that reference the file. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:44, 11 February 2016 (EST)

About the "Silly Stories, by you!" Contest[edit]

I just love your contest! I lol'd when I read your story containing my entry of Mario stuffing a jack-in-the-box in the Trump's toilet. Keep up the good work! LegoMarioBros (talk) 23:09, 5 March 2016 (EST)

Unresolved questions[edit]

Out of curiosity, why do you remove {{talk}} from pages every so often? I don't think it's particularly harmful to let people know that there are unresolved questions, especially when the posts were made fairly recently (less than six months, by the look of it) by users who are still active. Hello, I'm Time Turner.Time Turner.png

I get where you're coming from, but the way I see it, people aren't asking any questions that require immediate attention. Obviously, people prefer that their questions are answered as soon as possible, but that applies to the people who posted six days ago and the people who posted six months ago. If they're asking perfectly reasonable questions, especially when those questions concern the structure or content of the wiki, I don't see the harm in letting the new questions coexist with the slightly older questions. Hello, I'm Time Turner.Time Turner.png

100% Completion[edit]

In Super Mario 3D Land, there are a total of 20 unique normal Mystery Box contents and 15 unique golden-sided Mystery Boxes contents. By your 100% Completion rules, would one have to complete every one of those, even though it's totally random whether a new one or an old one will come up? Also, by your rules, must one get all the dragon coins in Super Mario World?

I hope you can respond even though I don't yet have an account. Thanks! I probably will get an account at some point.

I now have an account! In case there was any confusion, I'm the one who asked about 100% Completion Luigi 64DD (talk) 11:38, 21 September 2016 (EDT)


In Super Mario Galaxy, there is a way to get Yoshi as a non-playable character (Though the difficulty of getting him is very high so it is hard to confirm). You can get an egg by stomping on 20 Goombas on a planet that looks like Yoshi without touching the ground after you start stomping Goombas. After that is completed, you will need to spin in between the to fires that come out of Yoshi's (the planet) nose. Once you get the egg, tell me. I will give you more information once you got the egg. If there is no Yoshi Egg, then you tell me and I will not tell you about the rest of the way to get Yoshi.

So how is this coming? Redyoshi.png Yoshi the SSM (talk) Merry Christmas 16:54, 1 September 2016 (EDT)
Since Yoshi is in Super Mario Galaxy 2, it is hard to find it online. Believe me, I tried before. I found it, but it won't be easy to find it again. Also, I don't know that it is a hoax, the only way is to do the challenge. Redyoshi.png Yoshi the SSM (talk) Merry Christmas 17:42, 1 September 2016 (EDT)

Moving Files[edit]

Please stop moving files without modifying pages linking to the old file that link to the redirect instead and not tagging redirects with {{delete}} on the Super Mario Wiki. This isn't a warning, and it's possible that you made a mistake by accident or without realizing it; this is simply a reminder for your information. If the action continues, then a warning will be issued. Thanks for reading and keep contributing.

Move Log: I see that you moved File:KROOLDKJUNLGE.jpg to File:KROOLDKJUNGLE.jpg and left the redirect standing where pages link to the redirect. As far as MarioWiki users have handled this Wiki, it is not favored to leave redirects to files as changes need to be made to pages that link to the old file name. As a side note, admins have the option to not leave a redirect and they often not leave a redirect for files. Be sure to do that next time. Tag the redirect with {{delete}}. Since the old file name is being linked to pages you probably can't edit, ask an admin to edit those for you. I already asked Henry Tucayo Clay (talk). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:27, 17 September 2016 (EDT)

Not saying you shouldn't move files to have a better file name. I just hope you realize that you need to modify as many pages as possible, if not all pages, that link to the old file name and tag the redirect with {{delete}} when you do move. Ask a sysop for assistance if you can't modify pages. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:00, 17 September 2016 (EDT)
