From the Super Mario Wiki


Any relation between Ba-Boom and the other Kongs is unconfirmed, so adding information (especially with words like "maybe" and "likely") like this is speculation and should be avoided. You can the information back if you have a source to back up your claims. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:05, 15 April 2018 (EDT)


Are you perhaps using Google translate to make edits? Because the wording of your edits tends to look really weird. Anyways, if English is not a language you are good at, try getting better at it before making large edits, OK? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:52, 19 April 2018 (EDT)

Minor edits[edit]

For small coding fixes like this, please remember to mark them as minor by ticking the "This is a minor edit" checkbox above the "Save page" button. You also don't need to bold subsection headers, as they're already in bold. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:07, 19 May 2018 (EDT)

Please stop forgetting to mark small edits as minor 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.

Small edits like these should have the "This is a minor edit" checkbox ticked. There have been a number of times where you've forgotten, so please remember next time. A recommendation would be to check over your information with the "Show preview" button first before saving, rather than making multiple tweak edits afterwards.

File:Kremling Krew emblem.png[edit]

Hi, can I ask where you got this from? The source you provided links to another file page to another wiki which you yourself uploaded. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:59, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

That means it's fan-made and needs to be deleted, because that model is custom. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:57, 12 June 2018 (EDT)
If you'd like, you can keep the image as a personal image by tagging it with {{personal-image|ChristopherPAraujo}}; however, it must be used on your userpage or a signature if you wish to create one. Otherwise, it will be deleted, as fan-made content like this is not allowed on mainspace. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:10, 12 June 2018 (EDT)
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior (adding custom/modified images to mainspace) on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If this warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

Do not add fan-created or modified images, yours or anyone else's, to mainspace, as you've already been reminded. The DK logo has already been deleted once before for this reason, so that doesn't mean it should be uploaded again. Please only upload official images. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:50, 20 June 2018 (EDT)

It was an image that you took from the model's texture, which had the letters spaced far apart, or cropped from an image of the model itself, and made modifications to. Even edits as small as merging them together are prohibited. If you're going to upload a DK logo, it must be an official, unmodified version. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:42, 20 June 2018 (EDT)

RE: Giant Spider[edit]

Your reference was the Player's Guide, not the official Prima strategy guide you linked me. Although the Player's Guide does show what you're referring to on the same page number (see here), but as I said on the talk page, it's only a phrase, as in "to smite the spider" ("smite" meaning to strike down), not its name, like "Smite the Spider." Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:25, 16 June 2018 (EDT)


Please don't capitalise headings unless the word is a proper noun. Thanks. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:00, 23 June 2018 (EDT)

K Lumsy[edit]

Stop adding the "Last Warning" heading to the quotes page. What K Lumsy says isn't a warning, and directly follows up on his previous lines (after DK says "yes") and not a separate interaction.

It also helps to add an empty line before a heading for clarity. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:39, 7 July 2018 (EDT)


In-game references typically aren't needed unless it's obscure; typically, things like guides, manuals, or other such things use references. LinkTheLefty (talk) 00:23, 29 July 2018 (EDT)

RE: Music[edit]

You're going to need to provide timestamps for the songs to prove your point. I know the songs; I'm just not hearing the similarities you mentioned. You say the stages' music "briefly riffs" Stickerbrush Symphony/Rockface Rumble and One-Winged Angel, respectively, but there are no similar notes between them.

For Skowl's theme in particular, its similarity to "One-Winged Angel" is merely a coincidence. Whether or not it's intentionally "riffing" that song is unconfirmed. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:24, 23 August 2018 (EDT)

Re: Speculation[edit]

Where did that bit about Cranky Kong's great-grandfather being the start of the family come from? Just because he's the earliest known doesn't mean he started it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:40, 31 August 2018 (EDT)

DK64 quotes[edit]

While they're quotes from the game, you seem to be making a few spelling errors and confusing the periods with commas and vice versa (they appear slightly different in-game if you look more carefully). If you want, there's a text dump of the in-game text you can use as reference. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:50, 11 October 2018 (EDT)

RE: Brothers Bear[edit]

You tagged "Bears" with a reference, which means you're backing up this specific detail with evidence. It's very obvious they're bears, so we don't need a reference saying that they are. Not every piece of information needs a reference, just ones that are obscure, as LinkTheLefty explained to you above. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:44, 21 October 2018 (EDT)


You tend to leave out articles quite often when you write. Remember to include "a" and "the" when necessary in sentences. "The" is used when referring to a specific thing, "a" for a non-specific thing.

Just FYI, if you have to link both the name and source here, you don't need to use {{quote2}}; just use {{quote}} (without the square brackets). Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:53, 2 December 2018 (EST)


Hello, ChristopherPAraujo. 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]]
[[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.

Please remember to add the appropriate image categories to your uploads rather than removing {{uncategorized}} altogether. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 18:59, 10 December 2018 (EST)


You're adding a lot of information that oftentimes isn't mentioned anywhere in or has nothing to do with your sources. Please only add it if the source explicitly says it (or at the very least the implication is clear). Don't look too deep into them or make assumptions, as this can be considered speculation. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:46, 6 January 2019 (EST)

RE: Crocodile Isle[edit]

Are you saying the SNES version starts from the left and the GBA version from the right? I've added the point that the maps are reversed in the main article, as the entire layout is mirrored. I'm able to help as best as I can, but please understand and be aware though that it's sometimes hard to interpret what you're trying to say, to the point where there's no choice but to remove the information outright.

(Just FYI too that it's spelled "trivia" and not "triva".) Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:56, 11 January 2019 (EST)

I've already incorporated it into the "Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest / Donkey Kong Land 2" section, as I've told you. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:40, 11 January 2019 (EST)

Redirect links[edit]

Redirect links should be avoided. For the Animal Friends, please link to the full names (e.g. [[Rambi the Rhino|Rambi]] instead of simply [[Rambi]]). Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:42, 30 January 2019 (EST)

RE: Permission[edit]

I don't see why not. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:34, 17 February 2019 (EST)

RE: Banana Balloons[edit]

I've already explained my reasoning in the deletion log. You used a .jpg from your source here and converted it to a .png, then applied edits to it, which goes against MarioWiki:Image use policy. If you wish to use the Banana Balloon artwork from that scan, it should be the original .jpg cropped square/rectangular with no modifications to the background. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:10, 23 February 2019 (EST)

DK64 renders[edit]

How are you getting those renders without backgrounds? Are you cropping them from screenshots of gameplay you take, or are they from outside of playing, like from the data? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:40, 27 February 2019 (EST)

OK, thanks for the answer. Are the screen size parameters the same as what an actual N64 would show? I suppose that ultimately doesn't matter for model rips, since going into first-person view brings things up close anyways... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 12:18, 1 March 2019 (EST)
I know how it is, I went through and got every last banana in the Wii U version (which removes some intended lag, making the races really hard). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 12:50, 1 March 2019 (EST)

SMO world map texture[edit]

As long as it hasn't been heavily modified or anything, it's fine. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:30, 5 March 2019 (EST)

RE: Jungle Japes[edit]

No, it says "shell game", which is an expression, and not to be taken literally. The paragraph itself calls it a beehive. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:04, March 11, 2019 (EDT)

RE: ogg[edit]

Audio files must be in .oga, not .ogg. They should also be 30 seconds or less. Samples of the DKC ones already exist, so please cut down the length for the M+KRB clip when you get the chance. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:19, March 28, 2019 (EDT)

RE: Kong Family's theme[edit]

That doesn't explicitly confirm anything, only the fact that he acknowledged your tweet. You came up with the names and associations yourself, which are unofficial and fall under speculation (I'm not sure how you made these connections, either, especially "Kong Family"). Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:18, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

RE: Bowser's theme[edit]

Bowser's Castle (Second Time) from SMRPG is an arrangement of his theme in SMB3 (I've added that back in); however, Bowser's Castle 2 from SMO doesn't sound anything similar. It's an original song. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:51, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

JPG to PNG[edit]

Do not convert JPG images to PNG. By doing so, the size of File:DKL3 Pier.jpg went from 380 KB to over 2 MB. Please read MarioWiki:Image use policy again. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:59, April 9, 2019 (EDT)


Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! has an exclamation point in it. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 14:15, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

RE: Sea Breeze Cove[edit]

I never said it was speculation. It's not a completely low-elevation island or a ring surrounding a lagoon, it's a series of islands (an archipelago). Additionally, simply replacing "island" with "atoll" in the first sentence changes the meaning: saying "the fourth world and atoll" implies it's the fourth world and the fourth atoll, which is incorrect.

Also, please don't take this the wrong way when I say this, but your English could use some improvement. Obviously the wiki is a collaborative effort both in terms of helping the site and other editors, but at the same time it's also an English-language wiki, so if you're going to take on a lot of word-heavy content coming in, I'd recommend working on refining your English skills as well, since a lot of your edits involve adding information.

Donkey Kong Country Returns Screenshots[edit]

  • Unfortunately, Donkey Kong Country Returns is not a friendly game to the Dolphin Emulator. Only certain revisions can properly support it, but I don't remember which revision I was using when setting up the game screenshots. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 13:28, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

Character themes[edit]

Please stop associating certain themes to characters without any established connection between the two. While Bowser's final battle theme is named "King Bowser" and Count Bleck's theme is named "The Evil Count Bleck" (therefore they can be considered themes for them), the ones you added to Wario's page have never been established as themes for Wario, by name or otherwise. (If anything, it's possible they're the game's theme and not the character's.) I get that you like to think characters should have their own personal themes, but just keep that to yourself on your userpage or somewhere else, not on wiki articles. As I've already mentioned, this is considered speculation and can lead to a reminder if this happens again. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:14, July 20, 2019 (EDT)

As I've already stated, this doesn't prove they're "Wario's theme", just because they play in many parts of the games, when they could just be the Wario Land series theme. If there's evidence like an official soundtrack naming it "Wario's Theme" for example, then we can consider it.
That Wario Land 3 theme isn't the same theme either. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:50, August 14, 2019 (EDT)


I don't know if posting someone else's tilesets is allowed. Can you not make an account? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:59, July 31, 2019 (EDT)

Go to the game you want to upload for (in this case DKC3) and hit the big green '+' at the top by the game icon. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:14, July 31, 2019 (EDT)
That's kinda like the autoconfirming thing on this site, I think. Wait a few days and it should work. Did you just make your account? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:53, July 31, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, just wait a few days, it should work then. They do that to keep spammers away. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:27, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
