Kart Images[edit]

Hey, the art in the infoboxes for kart pages, for example, Standard MR, should be an image of just the kart itself, unless said image does not exist. In this case, the image does exist, so please stop changing it and other similar pages. However, you can include the artwork of characters in the kart in a gallery on the page.

This is your last warning. The next time you break the rules in any way, you will be blocked from editing the Super Mario Wiki.
If this last warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You are still ignoring what I said above. Continue to do so and you will be blocked. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:34, 22 July 2017 (EDT)

For a different issue, the course articles infoboxes should have the image of their first appearance, as their later appearances are covered in later sections with the relevant images and coverage. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:30, 22 July 2017 (EDT)

Banisher[edit]

The only "resemblance" the Banisher has to the other karts is that it looks like a character. Piranha Prowler and the Bowser Bike would also be classified similarly if that were the case, and it's not. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:27, 4 August 2017 (EDT)

The exact way the head with the two lumped-up eyes and no lower jaw actually does make it look pretty similar, in my opinion. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:31, 4 August 2017 (CT)
The point being, does Dry Bones bear a resemblance to Yoshi or Birdo? No. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:35, 4 August 2017 (EDT)
Yes? The head shape is strikingly similar, with that large nose and twin lumped eyeholes. Yoshi was initially intended to be a type of Koopa, after all. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:46, 4 August 2017 (CT)

Italics[edit]

Hey, just to let you know when writing game titles, they should be italicized. This is done by typing two apostrophes on both sides of the name. For example ''Mario Kart'' becomes Mario Kart. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:09, 13 August 2017 (EDT)

Unnecessary changes[edit]

I don't know what you're trying to accomplish with switching the images around in the kart infoboxes, specifically for Standard Kart, but there really is no reason to change them. If you're trying to see how the images look in the infoboxes, just look at the image itself, no need to swap it out. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:49, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

There is especially no need to edit war over the infobox pictures either. As Alex said, changing them accomplishes nothing, so just leave them be, as all you're doing is flooding the recent changes with useless edits. Yoshi876 (talk)

Karts brought back[edit]

Aren't karts brought back supposed to be images of their first instead of later appearances. User|Cosmic Flare

If their later appearance is a better image and shows the most recent appearance, then we use that. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:31, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

OK. Thanks. User|Cosmic Flare

Standard MR[edit]

Also, the reason why the Standard MR's handling is its weak stat is because it is the lowest number. User|Cosmic Flare

Userboxes[edit]

All info here. The coding for my friend box is: {{userbox|border=#FFFF00|mainbkgd=#FF0000|codebkgd=#FFFFFF|codecolor=black|code=[[file:Stephan.png|60px]]|msg=This user has a powerful friendship with {{User|Alex95}}!}} Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:23, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

All right, thanks. :D User|Cosmic Flare

It worked, but the image just say {{{code}}}. I typed the code properly. What did I do wrong? User|Cosmic Flare

Hello! To fix that, I believe you would need to add = in between the word "code" and the image. Also, you should sign you comments by adding ~~~~ at the end of it, which would link to your userpage and add a timestamp at the end. You can also create a personalized signature by following the tutorial on Help:Signature and the rules on MarioWiki:Signatures. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 16:39, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

RE:Standard MR[edit]

Most of the Mario Kart DS images you can locate at Gallery:Mario Kart DS. I'm assuming you mean this image of the title screen and this image of the sprite model. Both are fine to add to the gallery, imo.
I don't know what you mean by the second point. Standard MR already has handling as its weakest stat. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:45, 17 August 2017 (EDT) Alex 95, I added the Standard MR sprite, but when I got back on Standard MR, The title screen of Mario was added in the gallery. Did you add that in? User|Cosmic Flare

I did. Saw you were having trouble with coding. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:07, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

OK then. Thanks for the help. User| Cosmic Flare

No, but Mario's image could probably be swapped with the image of just the Standard MR itself. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:52, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

Ok, I'll do that now. User|Cosmic Flare Alex95, I tried to swap Mario's image with the Standard MR itself, and it disappeared! What happened? What did I do? :O User|Cosmic Flare

Fixed it. When plugging images into a gallery, you have to omit the usual image coding. Just the file name and the type (i.e "StandardKartMR.png") will do. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:00, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

All right, thanks. User|Cosmic Flare

Additionally, to avoid making too many edits and flooding the Recent Changes with the same page, hit the "Show preview" button to check your work and keep editing. Once you're satisfied, then you hit "Save page". Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:05, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

OK, thanks for that. I'll remember it next time. :D User|Cosmic Flare

Standard WL[edit]

Alex95, I am trying to create a gallery with images of the Standard WL, (most for them on the page Waluigi Pinball 1. How do I create a gallery? 2. Is a gallery needed for the Standard WL page? 3. Can you help me?
User|Cosmic Flare

  1. To make a gallery, you type <gallery>(indent)Insert image here(indent)repeat if needed(indent)</gallery>. "<>" inputs a code that the wiki reads and turns it into what is requested.
  2. Probably not.
  3. Already did :)

Previewing your edits[edit]

I just wanted to remind you that you can click "Show preview" to preview your edits before saving them. That way, you can avoid stuff like this. In the event that a mistake slips through anyway, mark the correction(s) as minor. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 18:38, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

Please stop forgetting to proofread your edits 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're still doing this. I'll say it again: Use the preview button to double check your edits before you make them. That way, you do not clutter edit histories and the recent changes page with useless edits. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 20:07, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

Standard Karts Stats in Mario Kart DS[edit]

The standard karts stats in Mario Kart DS, isn't it supposed to be the highest number the strongest? For example, the Standard RB's strong stat is speed because it is the highest and drift being weakest because it is the lowest. User|Cosmic Flare

Yes. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:23, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

So is highest number being its strongest and so on? Cosmic Flare

Yep. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:27, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

So does that mean the Standard Karts in Mario Kart DS has to be changed to its highest and weak stat? Cosmic Flare

Looking at the Standard Kart pages, they already appear to be marked correctly. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:32, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

Gold Mantis[edit]

I found a sprite for the Gold Mantis. How do I upload it? Cosmic Flare

Special:Upload. Be sure to fill out the about file template and categorize correctly. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:37, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

Ok, well, having problems. How to get the image for you.
Step 1. Type in Mario kart ds gold mantis sprite.
Step 2. Click on the second image of Gold Mantis.
Step 3. Look at the 5th image.
Final Step. Upload it.
You are welcome! :D Cosmic Flare

OK, I am really stuck here. Please help. Cosmic Flare

Is this the image you're talking about? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:16, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

Yep, that's the one. What's the source URL name? Cosmic Flare

Just call the image something like "Gold Mantis Sprite" and list the source as http://www.guiasnintendo.com. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:21, 31 August 2017 (EDT)
First you have to save the image and then you have to upload it directly to the wiki. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:26, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

Thanks Cosmic Flare

Good attempt with the upload. Here's some information to help your future uploads:

Hello, Cosmic Flare. 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.

Hello, Cosmic Flare. 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.

Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:35, 31 August 2017 (EDT)

Please go over these templates again before you continue uploading images, thanks. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:27, 4 September 2017 (EDT)

User templates[edit]

How do I create a template, like some users? Cosmic Flare

User:Cosmic Flare/sig
Saw you add your signature to your page, but you first have to create it. Click that link, create your signature (and make sure it fits in the sigbox below), then go into your preferences under "Signature" include {{subst:nosubst|User:Cosmic Flare/sig}} into the box.

Standard Kart[edit]

Is Mario's standard kart artwork in Mario Kart DS supposed to be Mario with the Standard MR? Cosmic Flare

Photo Editor[edit]

So Alex 95, I edited Mario's standard kart to make it look like Luigi's standard kart. It said for the Standard LG, Standard PC, Standard YS, Standard TD, Standard DK, Standard WR, Standard BW, Standard DS, Standard DB, Standard WL, Standard RB and Standard SG to match the image for the Standard MR. Should I add it in as its image or in the gallery? Cosmic Flare

No. The images should be of ripped models, not an edited variant of the Standard MR image.
Also, yes to the above question, I didn't see that earlier. Since the other images surrounding it in the gallery are of the character and their kart, Mario's should be the same. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:40, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

All right, but there are no existing images for Standard LG, Standard PC, Standard YS, Standard TD, Standard DK, Standard BW, Standard WR, Standard DB, Standard DS, Standard WL, Standard RB and Standard SG ripped models. Only the artworks. Cosmic Flare

Yeah, someone's going to have to get around to that later :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:49, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

By the way, can't anyone make a ripped model of their standard karts. Cause really no one stands a chance here. Cosmic Flare

I'm not seeing any on Model's Resource, so it may be a while. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:38, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

Yeah, but it would look like their standard karts, but they are used by Mario. And besides, this is the best I can do, Alex 95. Cosmic Flare

Sorry. Fan-made images are not allowed for official content. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:42, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

All right, but I don't know how to make ripped models for them. Unless it could have been the artwork of Mario with the Standard Kart, to match the others. Until then, The conjunction has no reason to be there cause there are no existing images for their standard karts. Cosmic Flare

There are some users here that are capable of ripping models, but that will be done some other time. By "conjunction", I assume you mean the {{more images}} template. The purpose of that is to let others know that additional images need to be uploaded, because there aren't any uploaded. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:49, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

Three things:
1. How are those users who make the ripped models?
2. Are they making them now?
3. If not, when are they going to make them so we can remove the {{more images}} template? Cosmic Flare

  1. I don't know everyone who can, but it might be best to make a post about it in the Wiki Collaborations board on our forums.
  2. Not to my knowledge, no.
  3. Please be patient. For stuff like this, it's usually done once someone feels like they have the time to do so.

Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:58, 2 September 2017 (EDT) Also, why are fan-made images not allowed to be on this wiki? I am just trying to help. :C Cosmic Flare

In terms of dealing with official content, we should show official content. Fan-made stuff is usually subjective or poorly done. It's just better for everyone to not have to deal with those problems and stick to official material. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:06, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

Mario Kart DS talk[edit]

So, did you know, that I added in some images in the gallery for the B Dasher. And the weight on the kart is close to 7, not 8. But don't worry, I fixed it long time ago.

Next, and I'm going to be funny, that red plumber's standard kart and also his brother's standard kart, shouldn't they share the same stats. But what the hey? And, I think that Mario and Luigi should have their karts a palette swap of each. Cosmic Flare

Starting in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario & Luigi's karts have almost never shared the same stats. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:12, 3 September 2017 (EDT)

A thing about, and I'm going to be funny again, a pink princess and a orange princess in Mario Kart DS, and along with a monkey, why do they have high drift? Oh, and also Mario's old nemesis and Toad both of them top drift, but still.Cosmic Flare
So, what is your favourite kart and character combination in Mario Kart DS? Mine is Wario in the Egg 1. Cosmic Flare

I haven't played the game that much. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:08, 4 September 2017 (EDT)

REALLY!!! :O :O :O Cosmic Flare
Also, something I wanted to asked. The image for the karts (except the B Dasher, Egg 1, ROB-BLS and ROB-LGS) are they supposed to be the screenshots or models? Cosmic Flare
Also, someone changed the Standard MR image to the artwork instead of the model. Should I change it back? Cosmic Flare Well, should I change it back or not? Cosmic Flare

Fixed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:50, 15 September 2017 (EDT)

Who changed it? Cosmic Flare

you can view the History of the page to learn more about edits made to it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:54, 15 September 2017 (EDT)

Sprites and models[edit]

The characters sprites and models, should I add in Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Bowser, Wario, Waluigi, Daisy, Dry Bones, R.O.B. and Shy Guy's models for Mario Kart DS? Cosmic Flare

If you're going to upload those, don't forget to follow the instructions given above. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 15:18, 3 September 2017 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop not fixing the aboutfile template and continuing to uncategorize images even after being asked to do so on the Super Mario Wiki.

You've already received an aboutfile reminder and image category reminder above for not going through, please follow instructions that are outlined above before you continue to upload images that have broken aboutfile coding and please remember to categorize your images properly, it's a hassle for others to fix broken templates for you. Thank you! BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 15:09, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
