Edits[edit]

Hello. Regarding your recent edits, please remember to use correct grammar on articles next time. For this one in particular, avoid using imperative language and "strategy guide"-style writing as if you're talking to the reader (e.g. "Be careful...", "Make sure to...") - as this is an encyclopedia, article content should be kept at an informative tone; and also avoid using the word "you" - on articles, we use the term "the player", or the character's name, instead. Please also remember to not leave untidy or unfinished edits like that.

Finally, do you have a source for the name "Cappy Capture"? Every mention of the move in the game has always simply been "Capture." Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 11:07, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay, I'm new to this so thank you, as for Cappy Capture, That's what I thought the game said... Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk)


In regards to the amiibo section of the Dr. Mario page, that's the information given on the Dr. Mario amiibo on Nintendo's amiibo site (which is simply just a repeat of the Super Smash Bros. trophy): https://www.nintendo.com/amiibo/detail/dr-mario-amiibo-super-smash-bros-series Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:42, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

Understood,could you tell me how to sign right for this thing? User:Do The Mario

You sign your comments using three or four tildes (~~~~), which will automatically display your username and links to your userpage/talk page, and a time stamp if you use four. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:50, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

Thank you Do The Mario (talk) 13:01, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

(Yeah, that comment can be removed) Special:RecentChanges shows viewers the most recent changes made to the wiki, including talk pages. I didn't get notified, rather I just checked your revision. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:02, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

okay, I thought it was Mario-related so... Do The Mario (talk) 14:29, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

It is and it isn't. It's a group of Mario-based fan games, which shouldn't be advertised. However, if it's something you work on yourself, you can link to it once you're able to make your own userpage, like what I do. But otherwise, it counts as spam and shouldn't be linked to. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:32, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

once again understood, I so wish I could create ir right now, Do The Mario (talk) 14:37, 8 June 2018 (EDT)

I’m auto-confirmed Yay! How do I add my avatar? Do The Mario (talk) 12:43, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

You upload it just like any other image, mark it with {{personal-image|Do The Mario}}, and then put it on your page. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:51, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

like this? --personal-image-Do_The_Mario--.jpeg Do The Marii (talk) 13:01, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Special:Upload Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:05, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay, I put it on my page, now what? Do The Mario (talk) 13:12, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

That's it, dude. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:13, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Well it’s not working... Do The Mario (talk) 13:17, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

The image is displaying, what are you trying to do with it? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:21, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Do what you did, have Alex95 as an image in the name, Do The Mario (talk) 13:22, 11 June 2018 (EDT) Only with 5e image on my home page not yours,

Oh, you mean for your signature. You would first have to create User:Do The Mario/sig and place the image there. Because your image doesn't have your name in it, this would be a good mock-up:

[[File:Personal Image.png|35px]] [[User:Do The Mario|Do The Mario]] ([[User talk:Do The Mario|Talk]])

The image is resized there to fit the signature image requirements. More details on how to create a signature is at MarioWiki:Signatures and Help:Signature, and information on personal images can be found at MarioWiki:Personal images. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:27, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Not sure if it’s working yet... Do The Mario (talk) 13:35, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Copy and paste the code I gave you exactly, as the image in your signature is too large. Once that's done, go to your preferences and under the User profile tab, in the "Signature" section, put {{subst:nosubst|User:Do The Mario/sig}} in the "New signature" text box, then check the box beneath it. After saving, now whenever you type three or four tildes (~~~~), the signature will be displayed next to your comment. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:41, 11 2018

it worked above at least {{subst:nosubst|User:Do The Mario/sig}} (talk) 20:11, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Go to Special:Preferences and under the "User profile" tab, in the "Signature" section, put {{subst:nosubst|User:Do The Mario/sig}} in the "New signature" text box, then check the box beneath it. After saving, now whenever you type three or four tildes (~~~~), the signature will be displayed next to your comment. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:12, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Do you not see what happened to my username? It now says {{subst:nosubst|User:Do The Mario/sig}} (talk) {{subst:nosubst|User:Do The Mario/sig}} (talk)June 11 2018

Did you check the box? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:15, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Come again? {{subst:nosubst|User:Do The Mario/sig}} (talk) 20:19, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

The check box under the New signature text box, does it have a check mark in it? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:20, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

No, that was my problem, thanks! Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 20:38, 11 June 2018 (EDT) I can’t believe it worked, thanks! Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 20:38, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

RE: Blocked[edit]

I don't recall ever blocking you, nor are there any records in your block log. Are you sure you're looking at the right page, and can you direct me to where you found this information? Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 11:41, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

yes just give me a minute to find it again Do The Mario (talk) 11:46, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

here you are:[1]finding this crushed me Do The Mario (talk) 11:49, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

Is it possible you were just typing in all-caps while looking up your creation date? Unless you've created another account before, that user appears to be a different account altogether just with a similar name as you. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 12:08, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

possible I guess but I typed in D not DO THE MARIO Do The Mario (talk) 12:10, 10 June 2018 (EDT)

Well again, unless you remember creating a previous account back in July last year, this specific account is a completely different user, not you. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:46, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

I didn’t even find this until the creation date of this account, BTW how do you post images? Do The Mario (talk) 02:51, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Special:Upload. It's also the link titled "Upload file" under "tools" on the left navigation pane. Help:Image and Help:Gallery are guides on how to add them on pages among text or in a gallery, respectively. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:55, 11 June 2018 (EDT)
Thank you, Do The Mario (talk) 03:08, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Linking[edit]

When linking to a page, please remember to use the correct, exact title (e.g. ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', not simply ''[[Smash bros. brawl]]'', as that creates a dead link). You can check the title using the search function. Help:Contents also has a lot of guides on editing if you ever need them.

It also helps to add the image in the correct order (in this case, chronologically) as with the rest of the images in the gallery. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 04:13, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Yes Sir, Do The Mario (talk) 04:15, 11 June 2018 (EDT)

Gallery:Trophies page[edit]

Bringing to your attention that there is already a list of trophies in Super Smash Bros. Brawl called List of trophies in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. There is also a List of trophies page for the other games. With that, I don't see a real reason to keep your new gallery page, as it just repeats information we already have. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:27, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

I was making this a page with all the trophies pictures, instead of a chart with explanations for a certain category, if you wish I will halt, but I have been working straight for a while, and thought this was a good idea, I’ve also been wanting to make an actual page for this and his was the on,y thing I could think of Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 01:31, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

Having both a list and a gallery seems excessive. The list can go into more detail than a gallery can, and it does the same thing. The first three images are also in Gallery:Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Considering we're also trying to lessen our Smash coverage, the page may end up getting deleted soon unless there is a real reason to keep it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:35, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay I’ll get rid of it Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 01:37, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

Well given there is trophies in three other games, I'd say it has good use. And why lessen Smash coverage when Smashwiki wastes memory giving articles to random clouds? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:40, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay, who do I listen to? And how did Doc find this? Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 01:44, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

The recent changes thing on the left. What you should do is maybe bring up a conversation about it with more than two people. Some people here want to lessen the Smash content on here due to Smashwiki's existence, while others like me want it to stay due to Smashwiki having in-depth articles over pointless fancruft and being specifically made for specific parts of the competitive community and not a more general-populace-friendly look like ours is. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:46, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

That’s a good idea, how do I raise that kind of a conversation? Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 01:47, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

You'll notice a tab marked "discussion" in the upper left corner of the gallery's page. That's where you'd start. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:48, 12 June 2018 (EDT)
Done ✅ !  Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk)  01:58, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

Writing[edit]

Please recall what I said at the top regarding use of proper grammar. I also highly suggest reading through the Manual of Style, which details how articles should be properly written, including italicising game titles (''[[New Super Mario Bros. 2]]'', not [[New Super Mario Bros. 2]]) and writing in third-person (using "Mario" or "the player" instead of the word "you", as I mentioned above). Please be aware that continuously making poorly written or rushed, untidy edits may lead to an official reminder. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:00, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

Whoops,sorry I forgot Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 10:26, 12 June 2018 (EDT)

File reversion[edit]

There's no need to keep reverting a file if it's already what it needs to be. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:09, 13 June 2018 (EDT) I know but when I did it simply took your version and squashed it... Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:10, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Refresh your browser by pressing ctrl and F5 at the same time, if you're able. THe image will reset. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:11, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

I did, multiple times, and I’m on mobile not a computer Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:12, 13 June 2018 (EDT) And it worked once you took care of it, it was mine that did that Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:13, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay, maybe exit out of your mobile app and come back. The image is what it needs to be, even if it doesn't show for you correctly at the moment. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:16, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Like I said it’s working now, just wasn’t when I was reverting it, what I did was: Reverted it, saw squashed Mario Reverted it, saw squashed Mario Reverted it back to yours You fixed it Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:20, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Also how do I get HTML working to customize my page? Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:21, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

If HTML codes don't work for you, your mobile browser may not support it. Otherwise, that's a rather broad question and I'm not sure how to answer that. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:36, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

It registers it as wikitext and when I use <nowiki> it does the same thing Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:40, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Don't use nowiki is you want something to actually work, but it sounds like your browser doesn't support it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:47, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Oops, I meant CSS, I think of HTML and CSS as the same thing Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:55, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Ah, well, you can craft your own custom css at User:Do The Mario/common.css. Anything done there will effect how you view the site as a whole, but only you will be able to see the changes. Just try not to spend too much time in your userspace. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:58, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Thanks so much, Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 00:59, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Okay, I created the File but it’s only working with me logged in, not on my user page...  Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk)  17:37, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop making poorly written 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.

Please avoid making edits with bad grammar and writing in second-person perspective, as you've been told twice already. As this is an encyclopedia, information shouldn't be presented in a poorly written or unfinished state, and it's expected you adhere to the writing guidelines outlined in the Manual of Style and MarioWiki:Good writing. Please remember next time. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:43, 14 June 2018 (EDT) Okay, I get your point and have been trying, but may I ask what article edit you are referring to? Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 02:45, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

A number of your most recent mainspace edits, including these ones. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:52, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

Understood, noted and will probably read more than add because I literally have not made any edits without either you or Alex95 coming after mePersonal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 02:55, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

Want to be clear that we're not "coming after you." We're only trying to help you become a better editor. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:45, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

Im not sayingg you aare but its just starting to annoy me, I literally went through my edis and each of them had been reverted or someone talked to me about it and I'm just finished with it, I spend hard work on stuff just to be told I did it wrong, ynd I am done with it Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 14:51, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

I had most of my edits reverted when I first started too, as is the case for most everyone. Sorry you're getting discouraged, but it does take time to learn how things work. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:56, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

Yeah well I'm sure you never had anyone go as far as above! Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 15:00, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

You can take a look at my first talk archive, if you want. Some reminders and heads-ups there. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:02, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

I see 1-2 heads up and a welcome, Ive gitten tons of reminders and nothing else and either way I dont nneed everybody on my back, so like I said, I will do more reading than wasting time making edits that will only get thrown away via revert, e.g.Trophies Gallery Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 15:14, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

There's no need to get aggravated when edits, big or small, are reverted. Our wiki has rules, so edits are bound to be reverted if they go against them. It's a common occurrence for every new user, not just you. And to clarify, the numerous reminders you received were more gentle, informal heads-ups, whereas this official reminder was more serious, and was only given because it's been a repeated issue that you failed to address even after the previous reminders. So please don't take it as discouragement for your edits; that wasn't my intention. As Alex95 said, you're getting these messages because it's to help you get better with your edits. Take your time improving your grammar and looking through the MarioWiki help and policy pages, and keep asking around if you need help. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:33, 15 June 2018 (EDT)

M&SG[edit]

3DS Images[edit]

  • Outside of Smash 3DS, a lot of my 3DS image uploads involved the use of Miiverse. But with the Miiverse service now terminated, it's no longer possible to create new 3DS images without certain tools. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 07:37, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

okay, thank you for the info Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 14:46, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

Userpage[edit]

Just making sure you actually want your userpage deleted. Also, your talk shouldn't be marked for deletion at all, as it is supposed to be a record of your conversations. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:54, 7 July 2018 (EDT) Yes, I am through, Personal Image.png Do The Mario (Talk) 19:56, 7 July 2018 (EDT)

Okay, it's been deleted. It can be restored or recreated if you wish. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:58, 7 July 2018 (EDT)
