Italics[edit]

I've seen you go back and forth with this, but keep in mind that any game title you name on articles needs to be in italics (as TheFlameChomp has done for you here). MarioWiki:Manual of Style lists some basic guidelines for editing (including sections) if you'd like to give it a read. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:01, 14 February 2019 (EST)

If I didn't apply italics with a game title, it was a mistake. B700465189a9 (talk) 17:24, 15 February 2019 (EST)

Off/Off Switch comment[edit]

Hello, please note that replying to old comments is against the rules. Also, your reply to Mario Jc is disrespectful to a bureaucrat. Thanks for your understanding. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:05, 25 February 2019 (EST)

Sections[edit]

Please avoid creating separate sections if there isn't enough distinctive information to split them, and especially not with empty sections. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:04, 3 March 2019 (EST)

Okay. Is a list of appearances in levels enough to split them? B700465189a9 (talk) 15:54, 4 March 2019 (EST)

Unfinished pages[edit]

Hello, if you are not done making a page, then please add it to a document, make a user sandbox, or add the {{construction}} template to the page instead of creating an unfinished page. Thanks! Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:46, March 12, 2019 (EDT)

Per all but the last one. You shouldn't create stub articles marked with {{construction}} so it can be finished later; it must have a sufficient amount of content from the start, but if little information has been revealed about the subject, wait for more information to be released before creating it. Please follow the MarioWiki:Manual of Style when creating new articles as well. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:55, March 12, 2019 (EDT)
Please stop Making stub articles 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.
If this reminder was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You have created another stub article. Pages must have all available information before being published. As said before you can create a document or make a sandbox to store your writing before publishing it, if you need more time then you currently have.

New subjects[edit]

Subjects in an upcoming game use {{new subject}}, not {{upcoming}}. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:49, May 11, 2019 (EDT)

Ok. B700465189a9 (talk) 17:17, May 12, 2019 (EDT)

Categories[edit]

Hello, B700465189a9. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It is simple to learn how to correctly do so. Just search for the correct category by starting with the following groups:

Images Audio/Video Files

When uploading, copy the full title of the category with square brackets, and insert it into the summary text box (below the {{aboutfile}} template), replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. For example, files related to the game Super Mario World would use:

[[Category:Super Mario World Images]]
or
[[Category:Super Mario World Media Files]]

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Keep in mind some files can belong to multiple categories. Don't put images into media categories and vise-versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

The category link needs the "Category:" prefix to work (Category:Super Mario Maker Images, not Super Mario Maker Images). Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:37, May 15, 2019 (EDT)

Error on my part, although I was trying to use Category:Super Mario Maker 2 Images. Tangentially related: shouldn't forms be separate listings on Super Mario Maker, if we're going to split Goombas from Goombrats? B700465189a9 (talk) 19:46, May 15, 2019 (EDT)

User subpages[edit]

Your User:B700465189a9/Userboxes/Game completion is not allowed. The code for the userbox can just be placed on your page, you don't need a separate page for the userbox. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:16, May 16, 2019 (EDT)

Templates[edit]

I understand the use for {{Difficulty}}, but I don't think it's coded correctly. "2" only displays one star, for instance. Unless it's supposed to be that way, I haven't played Super Mario Maker 2 yet.

But what is {{Loop}} supposed to be for? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:33, July 19, 2019 (EDT)

I am not experienced with MediaWiki syntax. {{Difficulty}} is meant to show a star rating (parameters 3 and 4 produce ★★★☆), and {{Loop}} was meant to accomplish it. B700465189a9 (talk) 16:42, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
At its most basic, the template would look something like this:
{{#switch:{{{1}}} |1=☆ |2=★ |3=★☆ |4=★★ }}
And so forth. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:25, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
That's with a defined maximum number of stars. The previous version took two parameters for minimum and maximum stars. B700465189a9 (talk) 07:30, July 20, 2019 (EDT)
