Aboutfile reminder[edit]

Hello, BubbleRevolution. 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. If you continue using {{aboutfile}} incorrectly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

I've edited five of your files due to the wrong use of the template. Remember to follow this for your future uploads, thanks. Ne1999 (talk)

Salvo the Slime[edit]

Yoshi's Island's bosses being "individuals" seems to be a Western invention, as the Japanese names are basically "Big (enemy name)." Furthermore, Mario Party 4 apparently had four versions of him appear at once, so it seems these were initially intended as just being enlarged versions of generic creatures with no personality (not to mention Big Tap-Tap getting "special" and "super big" variations, along with Big Raven appearing as a one-time generic enemy in Yoshi's Woolly World). Granted, over there, there is also no distinction between generic Magikoopas and Kamek... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:07, 18 February 2018 (EST)

I do agree with you on that, though there is something to be noted about some bosses being distinct individuals, as Raphael the Raven appeared in Paper Mario as his own character. I just felt that the overall translation came off a bit awkward since "Big Slime" is such a general name and may not necessarily refer to Salvo (though it most likely does), and felt a bit off using a name that appears to refer to an individual when the subject in question is a generic enemy. The relation between the two was right to be included, though. BubbleRevolution (talk) 01:19, 18 February 2018 (EST)

Moles[edit]

The proposal has finished; they are to be split. Shall you make the changes? If not, I'll be more than happy to do so myself. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:14, 20 March 2018 (EDT)

Huh, honestly wasn't looking like it was going to pass for a while there. I can make the changes, but I'm a bit busy tonight so I probably won't get around to it until tomorrow, so if you'd like to, feel free! (EDIT: Never mind, got it done.) BubbleRevolution (talk) 23:17, 20 March 2018 (EDT)
