Special Talk Pages[edit]


Welcome to my talk page archives! Please do not edit these as they are old and no longer needed.

Not fixed yet...[edit]

Unfortunately, cutting out the middle step doesn't change the fact that your stories are still on subpages. User:NAME/TITLE/TITLE is a subpage and User:NAME/TITLE is also a subpage. You cannot keep these pages separate, and moving them around solves nothing: you have to cut and paste the content out of those pages and onto User:Chris Helper if you want to keep them on this venue. - Walkazo 23:36, 31 October 2011 (EDT)

Yes, and your stories fall under the "pages that do not serve the Super Mario Wiki" grouping, and so, are not allowed, which is why we're asking you to move all their content to your main userpage (or off the wiki entirely). - Walkazo 23:45, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
Those subpages aren't allowed either, and if we come across them, we'd ask for their content to be moved into the userpages too. Don't take this personally. - Walkazo 23:49, 31 October 2011 (EDT)
And I understand that, but that doesn't mean you can be an exception to the userspace policy: the stories may clutter up your page, but all your subpages are cluttering the wiki. The best thing to do would probably be to move your fiction off this website, maybe to Userpedia, Fantendo, or some other site, and focus on editing the wiki's articles, rather than your userspace. - Walkazo 00:00, 1 November 2011 (EDT)
We're not running you off the wiki, and compared to plenty of other places, our simple request that users keep their content on one page isn't unreasonable at all. Anyway, thanks for cooperating so far; I deleted the pages you marked for deletion - can I delete the other pages too? It looks like all the content's on your main userpage by this point... except for User:Chris Helper/Story Characters, which also needs to be moved... I'll wait for confirmation before deleting anything more. - Walkazo 00:17, 2 November 2011 (EDT)

So, you still need to move the content on User:Chris Helper/Story Characters to your userpage. You also need to move the content on User:Chris Helper/Mario & Nintendo references to your userpage as well, since it's just more fiction. Please do this as soon as possible, because we can't put off deleting these pages much longer. I'm also going to have to delete User talk:Chris Helper/Gifts, since it's also not what subpages are supposed to be used for. - Walkazo 22:02, 6 November 2011 (EST)

You just have to copy and paste some stuff. It's not actually all that time consuming... You've already had a week to move all the info; we can't give you much more grace time. - Walkazo 14:38, 7 November 2011 (EST)
Okay, no problem. Good luck with your homework. - Walkazo 14:54, 7 November 2011 (EST)
Alright, the last of the pages has been deleted. Thanks for cooperating about all this. - Walkazo 22:25, 7 November 2011 (EST)

Their ScrewAttack link doesn't work, so you could only mention that third one (which said it was a must-own), but that's not enough to warrant a Reception section. Mario4Ever


There is a message at the top of Mario Kart 7 that says to not change the date. Jazama 19:22, 4 December 2011 (EST)

New stub reminder[edit]

Hello Chris Helper about the article you just made, is very short. This is consider a stub article which isn't allowed on the wiki. Please remember, when creating a new page put as much effort about the article as possible and please don't use a "third person view" verb which i am referring to as You. Thank you for reading.

Alien Bunny Sprite.pngL151Onnanoko transparent WC98.png

Building on what Lindsay151 said, the articles you've been creating are very short and typically consist of 1 to 3 sentences. I understand that the subject matter doesn't have much to talk about, but for example when you make the souvenir articles, you could add information about the following.

  1. Introduce the souvenir's game appearance and type.
  2. Appearance of the souvenir or background of the game.
  3. The objective or feature of the souvenir.
  4. Controls of the souvenir.
  5. Any applicable trivia or resemblance to other micro/mini-games.
  6. The availability of the souvenir (is it available from the start or do you have to do anything to get it).
  7. Any applicable images or image tags.

Using these criteria, you should be able to get at least 4 sentences. Try your best when creating these articles, since most likely no one will go back to add information to them once they have been made.--Knife (talk) 14:23, 7 January 2012 (EST)


What is the point of your stories, what message do they get across toadbert

What is the life lesson we are supposed to learn from your stories toadbert
So then why'd you write them toadbert


Hello. What was the point of this this reminder? User:Jazama has done nothing wrong. It is always helpful to add {{unsigned}} to unsigned comments. If you have no explanation for this at all, then please refrain from issuing reminders in such a manner again, as I am thoroughly against users alienating others who have potential. --Bryce emoticon-00159-music.gif talk emoticon-00159-music.gif contributions 05:34, 30 January 2012 (EST)

Your signature[edit]

Your signature is way too large. Please make it fit in the box above. That box is the maximum space a signature may have, no larger. PidgeyIcon.pngRandomYoshi(TalkPMsC) 13:39, 21 March 2012 (EDT)

I was talking about how it looked in this revision. While that revision of your signature was too large, this one isn't. If there is anything else that you wish me to clarify, please tell me, and I will clarify it to the best of my abilities. PidgeyIcon.pngRandomYoshi(TalkPMsC) 05:50, 23 March 2012 (EDT)

You are aware[edit]

You do know that what he did was perfectly ok he removed comments that belong on the forums which is the direct enforcement of this proposal [1]. Also you are not allowed to edit any warning that you did not give under any circumstance Raven Effect (talk)

If by security dog you mean a person who enforces the rules then yes he is. Also you gave him a reminder for putting the unsigned template on an unsigned comment seriously. Raven Effect (talk)

re:"Please Don't Copy Sources from Wikipedia"[edit]

Using Wikipedia to have a rough summary of who said what and to give an idea of what sources to use is fine, but the content should be original. Comparing your version:

Donkey Kong Jr. Math was a critical and commercial failure. Nintendo spokesman Tom Sarris said that it "wasn't a big hit", including that no one was very enthusiastic about the game. He felt that if it was well received, it would lead to more educational titles. Andy Slaven, the author of the game, derided Nintendo for combining a positively received license with math, which is generally unfavorable with children. Wikipedia:Inside Higher Ed's David Epstein did not find this game to be fun, while Bob Mackey from called it the worst NES launch title, criticizing it for a lack of value. He commented that Donkey Kong Jr. moves as well as an infant would in real life. Skyler Miller from Allgame said that the game was a creative use of Donkey Kong Jr.'s graphics and gameplay.

The game had a poor reception from IGN. Lucas M. Thomas found the controls poor and the execution to be bland and flawed. Frank Provo of GameSpot found out it became boring quickly; he also criticized the math problems that would be easy for young children and boring for older ones. Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead commented that it gave him an "ironic smile" as a reminder of the NES era, though he couldn't justify paying five dollars for it.

The game also received criticism for its qualities as an educational game.

with Wikipedia's

Since its release for the NES, Donkey Kong Jr. Math has been received negatively. It was the worst-selling launch title for the NES.[7] Nintendo spokesman Tom Sarris said that it "wasn't a big hit", adding that no one was very enthusiastic about the title. He felt that if it was more well received, it would have led to more educational titles.[8] Author Andy Slaven criticized the premise, deriding Nintendo for combining a well-liked license with math, which is generally disliked by children.[9] Inside Higher Ed's David Epstein did not find it to be a fun game,[7] while's Bob Mackey called it the worst NES launch title, criticizing it for its lack of value. He commented that Donkey Kong Jr. moves as well as an infant would in real life.[10] Allgame's Skyler Miller, however, called it a creative use of Donkey Kong Jr.'s graphics and gameplay.

Donkey Kong Jr. Math had a poor reception from IGN. IGN's Lucas M. Thomas found its controls poor and its execution to be bland and flawed.[3] IGN AU's Cam Shea said it was "too expensive if it was free".[11] He also included it on his list of the worst Virtual Console games, finding it difficult to imagine any reason why anyone would want to buy it.[12] GameSpot's Frank Provo found that it became boring quickly; he also criticized the mathematics problems, stating that they would either be too easy for young children or too boring for older ones.[13] Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead commented that it gave him an "ironic smile" as a reminder of the NES era, though he could not justify paying five dollars for it.[14]

It's obvious that you ctrl+C, ctrl+ved the first two paragraphs of the Wikipedia section, marginally changed the wording in some part (mind you, changing "adding that no one was very enthusiastic about the title" to "including that no one was very enthusiastic about the game." is nowhere near enough to pass it off as original content) deleted others and removed all the sources. The 2nd paragraph in both is nearly word-for-word identical, apart from the removed sentences.

While Wikipedia allows one to reuse its contents as long as it isn't used commercially and that the authors are credited (which you didn't do), we'd rather have original content, which what you added isn't by any stretch of imagination. --Glowsquid (talk) 12:30, 20 December 2012 (EST)

Ah-ha. That's why it features most of the same information with no addition, presented in the same order and with very similar (and in some case, identical) wording

Admitelly, there's only so many ways you can write "Jeff from GiantBomb thought DK. Jr Math sucked", but it's incredibly obvious you put only the barrest minimum effort in changing the content from that Wikipedia section. What you did is very similar to the first example here, which is about as incriminating as it can get. If you still don't see where the problem is, I don't know what to tell you. --Glowsquid (talk) 16:47, 20 December 2012 (EST)

Re: Greetings[edit]

Yeah, it's me. Wow, you are? We haven't talked in a while. Anyways, I've been pretty good, aside from this horrid heat. How about you? You excited about any new announcements from the E3? Webkinz Mania (talk) 07:15, 13 June 2013 (EDT)
