  1. I still had a point.
  2. People say, "focus on the good parts of life and you'll be happy". However, that glaring warning is really crawling onto me.
  3. My first completely normal string of conversations

Re:Room 1-5+[edit]

The article looks fine to me, it's similar to how I wrote the Mario vs. Donkey Kong levels. Level articles are a strange case on the wiki, they're the exception to the "no strategy" rule. Though you could also just point out the objective and call it good, but that's boring :P I think how it is now is good, and you've been doing a great job with these :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:03, 8 February 2019 (EST)

You're welcome, and I'm sure they would! Though most people who visit this site aren't usually expecting walkthroughs, they're good to have for those that are. I prefer text guides/player's guides to video walkthroughs myself. Easier to just pick up where you left off and you can progress at your own pace. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:35, 8 February 2019 (EST)
Yeah, when I write level pages, I keep things to the intended path (or try to, anyway). Multiple paths and strategies is something I think best works on Strategy Wiki. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:39, 8 February 2019 (EST)

Re:Conjecture[edit]

Joke edits (possibly outside April Fools' Day) are still, by definition, vandalism. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:04, 22 February 2019 (EST)

Well, you took too long. And that's still not really acceptable, even as a joke. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:16, 22 February 2019 (EST)
One last thing: I actually did wait to see if you'd revert it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:27, 22 February 2019 (EST)
It was a simple joke at Bye Guy's own expense that was meant to be quickly reverted and didn't actually do any major damage to the article (such as blanking or inappropriateness). I'm not regarding this as vandalism, but that said, joke edits should stay off of the mainspace articles. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:34, 22 February 2019 (EST)
Alright, understood. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 19:38, 22 February 2019 (EST)
Look, I'm not trying to throw you under the bus or anything here, you seem to be interpreting my tone as being much harsher than it is intended to be communicated as. I personally don't see it as vandalism, but from a most literal perspective, it technically is, and want to caution you against that sort of thing lest you go down a slippery slope. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:04, 22 February 2019 (EST)
It's alright now, I understand. My apologies for acting up. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 20:16, 22 February 2019 (EST)

Re: Tipping Stars[edit]

I can't extract the Tipping Stars backgrounds as they have multiple layers. But the game itself does have some small prerenders of the backgrounds, so here are those in PNG format. --Hiccup (talk) 09:24, 26 February 2019 (EST)

Future Tense[edit]

Glad to see I'm not the only person here who hates that. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:22, 28 February 2019 (EST)

Fluding[edit]

Thanks for helping with stuff it is just like this on the recent changes

You're welcome. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 17:51, April 8, 2019 (EDT)

Maskass[edit]

IKR? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:02, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

The Mighty Maskass! Kinda sounds like a Cyanide & Happiness character. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 13:09, April 12, 2019 (EDT)
Also, look at Fat Wario's German name. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 13:16, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

"pretty sure they also appear in new island. i'll look into it"[edit]

Special:Diff/2640045 No, they don't. I played the whole game (and watched videos for bonus leels), and can confirm you that they don't. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:53, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

Then I must confuse them for something else. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 15:53, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

Personal images[edit]

Two files (File:Untitled-2.png and File:SuperRadioPic.png) are marked as your personal images, but you don't appear to be using them. Checking to see if you plan to use them or want to use them again. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:29, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

You should add the second image to your userpage then, to prevent it from showing up as unused. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:43, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Okay, that's corrected. But the image still has to be used. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:01, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

Snowflakes[edit]

"The player" refers to how the player is playing as the characters, and it is not as fluffy as saying "the Kongs" (Saying "the Kongs" is still not that fluffy, but it is like saying something like "Mario starts on a small platform" instead of saying "the player starts on a small platform" when not on a character page where stating the character's name is nessecary) As for the last sentence, it has to be said as plainly as possible with the least amount of guide-like writing as possible. You do not even have to run to the Slot Machine Barrel anyways. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:32, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

Fair, but you have not answered about the last sentence on the page (The part about running). Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:47, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
You could say "go to" instead. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:58, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
Look at the end of this video. The uploader runs, rolls, uses Dixie Kong's Helicopter Spin, jumps, and walks slowly. The current wording makes it seem like running is the only way to the goal. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 20:07, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

Clowns "and Jesters"[edit]

I would consider "Jesters" to be within the nebulous definition of "clown," much like harlequins and mimes. Therefore, I believe it should just be moved to "Category: Clowns." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:10, May 11, 2019 (EDT)

Your gripe about level articles on the wiki[edit]

I'm trying to figure out the message in your gripe about level articles on the wiki. Is it griping about about level articles in general, or just their quality here on the wiki? (If it's their quality on the wiki, then I agree.) Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 11:09, May 18, 2019 (EDT)

Mario-related media proposal[edit]

Hi, I was just wondering if you'd like a hand implementing your proposal? There's quite a lot to go through, so I'd be happy to help, I just wanted to check first so that I don't edit-snipe you. :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 07:37, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

I could start going through the Super Smash Bros. characters if you'd like? BBQ Turtle (talk) 07:42, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

Re:DK roll attack in Mario and Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games[edit]

Yeah, that's his Special Dash, it's a move which every character has in certain events which gives them a large but brief speed boost, but each character has a unique animation which is usually related to them (For example, Daisy's has flowers, Peach's has hearts, Bowser an Bowser Jr. spin in their shells), so it probably is a reference to the Barrel Roll. I don't believe there's an article for the Special Dash yet, but I think you should put something on the Barrel Roll page. BBQ Turtle (talk) 13:08, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

Adobe flash games[edit]

Bye guy, I found more information regarding Nintendo's flash games. 2 games in particular are both allegedly based on the original Mario party and are called wario's whack attack and Mario's memory madness. I would suggest looking at all of the YouTube videos about Nintendo's flash games including the ones posted by engadget and skelux. The latter is archiving all the games. All the Mario ones could serve as useful information for updates to this list of games. Lord Falafel (talk) 22:30, May 28, 2019 (EDT)

Looking at the website skelux is posting them all on could be helpful, too. Lord Falafel (talk) 22:37, May 28, 2019 (EDT)

Marking redirects[edit]

Hello, please put the deletion template at the bottom of redirects, as putting it at the top breaks the redirect. Thanks! PumpkinheadGoomba.pngTheDarkStar SMM-SMB-Boo.png 21:26, May 29, 2019 (EDT)

Does it matter if the redirect is going to be deleted anyway?... -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 21:28, May 29, 2019 (EDT)
Good point, but it would be generally better if the redirect is left in working order. PumpkinheadGoomba.pngTheDarkStar SMM-SMB-Boo.png 21:29, May 29, 2019 (EDT)
I honestly prefer the redirect being broken, considering links to it should be fixed anyway and makes it easier for admins to get to it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:32, May 29, 2019 (EDT)

Browser or flash games[edit]

The Adobe flash article on the list of games organized by system has quite a few browser and flash games, but I'm not certain if I have them all. Especially all the ones we cover on the wiki. If there are any missing from the list, please tell me all of them. Lord Falafel (talk) 16:11, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for fixing some grammar on the Klaptrap page. I was too tired to revise my writing as a whole Results May Vary (talk) 18:42, June 14, 2019 (EDT)

Hogwash[edit]

I know this is old, but regarding the move from "Hogwash the Flying Pig" back to "Hogwash" a few years ago: is there another source that actually uses the shortened form? LinkTheLefty (talk) 17:00, June 25, 2019 (EDT)

Contractions proposal[edit]

Does it also applies on templates? Such as Template:Construction. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:50, July 3, 2019 (EDT)

"Super Mario Maker" series[edit]

Pretty sure that came from Builder Mario's spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:45, July 7, 2019 (EDT)

You got a point there. -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 19:56, July 7, 2019 (EDT)

Extra Life Balloon[edit]

Okay, I'm not sure what should be done about this page. The more recent games call it a "Red Balloon", but in the original trilogy there are also green and blue variants that grant more lives, so should those be split out...? Or should I make a proposal about it? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 05:22, July 12, 2019 (EDT)

Re: Table Tennis Plus[edit]

Thanks for catching those! I set the articles up in a certain way before I actually start playing the game and adding the bulk of the content, so that'll be what happened... and I was writing them pretty late at night. Thank you! :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 04:08, September 21, 2019 (EDT)
