Super Mario Encyclopedia[edit]

For future reference, we can't cite Super Mario Encyclopedia (the english translation) due to having names originating from the wiki, such as Soarin' Stu. It originates from the wiki. --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 03:19, 28 December 2018 (EST)

They weren't citing them, they were mentioning the SMBE naming controversy on the subject pages, which should stay on the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia and List of Mario-related controversies pages. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 03:29, 28 December 2018 (EST)

Categories[edit]

Hello, Doomdorm64. Good job on your recent uploads, but when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It's simple to learn how to 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 and insert it in square brackets into the summary text box below the {{aboutfile}} template, replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. If you're using the upload function from the text editor, simply add the category link to the description. 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 that some files can belong to multiple categories. Do not put images into the media files category, or vice versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Your recent uploads were missing the proper categories. Please replace the {{uncategorized}} template with the proper category, as shown above. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:34, 15 January 2019 (EST)

Moving files[edit]

You can simply move the file to the lowercase .png extension yourself by clicking the "move" tab at the top of the page. No need to tag it with {{move}}. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 21:03, 16 January 2019 (EST)

Also, after moving a file, please make sure that any pages that still link to the old name (by going to Special:WhatLinksHere on the old name redirect page, found under "tools" on the left navigation pane) are edited to link to the new name, and that the old name is then marked for deletion. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 08:44, 20 January 2019 (EST)
You've been forgetting this again. Please remember to fix the page links, otherwise you'll start seeing reminders. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:06, 28 January 2019 (EST)

Italics[edit]

Please also remember to italicise game titles. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 02:37, 17 January 2019 (EST)

Please remember this; you were missing them in your recent article. See the Manual of Style for more information. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 05:51, 2 February 2019 (EST)

Sprites[edit]

For future reference, never, ever, ever, ever, ever save a sprite as a .jpg. That absolutely destroys sprites. Save as a .png.

Furthermore, please upload singular sprites, not full sheets, and do so at their actual size. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:55, 19 January 2019 (EST)

JPG to PNG[edit]

When a file is asking for a PNG replacement, it doesn't mean "upload the JPG as a PNG". That is against policy, and the Wario World images you uploaded showed no signs of improvement in any way.

When you do upload a valid image, the links to the old image need to be replaced, as Mario jc reminded you above. This applies to both moved images and replacement images. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:50, 20 January 2019 (EST)

Aboutfile[edit]

Hello, Doomdorm64. 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, regarding your recent uploads while you have uploaded images with a properly added {{aboutfile}} template in the past you seem to be forgetting to add the {{aboutfile}} template to your uploads as of 15:17, 19 January 2019 with this image. A reminder of how to do this is listed above this comment. Thanks for your understanding. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 11:09, 21 January 2019 (EST)

Summary[edit]

For future reference, when uploading images ==Summary== is automatically added to the image, so adding it before the image is uploaded will result in two ==Summary== headers being on the image. Thanks for your understanding. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 9:33 January 27 2019 (EST)

Image quality[edit]

The Wario World images you are uploading are rather low quality. Where are you getting them? Is there a chance you can find/capture better quality images? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:49, 12 February 2019 (EST)

The same applies to your Super Mario Galaxy (2) images, like this, this, and this. Scrooge200 (talk) 13:13, 12 February 2019 (EST)

In regards to the Super Mario Galaxy images you've uploaded meaning to replace the files that are already there, they weren't of any better quality. The images you uploaded are incredibly blurry, while the originals are clearer. Please compare the images before replacing them, thanks. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:20, March 19, 2019 (EDT)

I agree with Alex95 (talk), but in general. Make sure to tag your uploads with {{image-quality}} or give my guide to better quality screenshots a try. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 11:13, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop forgetting to fix page links after moving a page 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 you feel this reminder was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You have been told over and over again that when you move a page or file, you need to fix the links so they point to the new name. Click the "What links here" button on the left while on the old name's page to get a list, then fix them. Additionally, when citing sources, you need to add a "references" section with the <references/> markup underneath it (like this). Dark BonesSig.png 01:40, 17 February 2019 (EST)

Redirects[edit]

Hi, regarding your creation of redirects, don't create them unless they're alternate names used in official venues, are a widely common fan name used for the subject, or are otherwise a common alternate name originating from the wiki's olden days or otherwise. I'm referring specifically to examples like your redirecting of Battlestation Galaxy to Dreadnought Galaxy (not to mention that in this case it would cause confusion with Battlerock Galaxy). Please keep this in mind, otherwise you may see a reminder or even a warning. Thanks! Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 05:18, 10 March 2019 (EDT)

New stub articles[edit]

One or more pages that you have recently created have been deleted or marked as a stub article. Please consider the following ideas and suggestions when expanding/creating an article:
  • Before saving a new page, be sure that you have put as much effort and information in the article as you can.
  • Make sure that the page follows all of the rules that are outlined in the Manual of Style.
  • Perhaps upload a few images that can be used on the article.
Please don't take this notice as a dejection; this is just an informative notice and we encourage you to keep contributing.

Specifically Veggie Patch, Spooky Woods, Snowful Slope and Forest Ruins. Please try to put as much information as possible in your articles when creating them next time. (My suggestion would be a more detailed layout section.) Also, try to avoid unnecessary padding to make the article appear longer than it needs to be (the bolded parts here: "Snowful Slope is the second level of the world Chill 'n' Char Island where Donkey and Diddy Kong venture through in the game DK: Jungle Climber."). Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 04:33, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

Minor edits[edit]

Edits like this (adding notice templates), especially when making a flood of them, should be marked as minor, as they can be filtered out when users manage through the recent changes. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 20:52, April 26, 2019 (EDT)

Shake King's Residence[edit]

I see the talk page for Shake King's Residence, but is the name really not used anywhere? Looks like the page has existed for a while. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:28, May 11, 2019 (EDT)

Conjectural pre-release articles[edit]

Please do not make pages like this. If we don't even have an official name for an entity in a game that isn't out yet, this can lead to all sorts of issues. That used to be done often (ie Mandibug has an article called "Spacebug" before SMG came out) but when we'll obviously be getting an official name soon, this is just making a bunch of extra needless work. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:16, May 16, 2019 (EDT)

File:SMG Torpedo Blaster.jpg and File:SMG Banzai Blaster.jpg[edit]

In which video specifically you found these images? Be more specific rather than just writting "YouTube". --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 12:17, July 2, 2019 (EDT)

YouTube screenshot[edit]

When you make a YouTube screenshot for a game footage, you don't need to make it a jpg, just make it a png. --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 08:57, July 7, 2019 (EDT)

Images for the SMG2 article[edit]

Hey, if you wouldn't mind, could you hold off for a few days on uploading new images for the enemies, objects, etc linked on the galleries on the Super Mario Galaxy 2 page? I am currently in the middle of a project to add high-quality emulator screenshots for all of these items, and it sort of messes up my organization and makes it more difficult to keep track of what I need to do. Thanks! Also, it is preferred to use artwork to represent the objects on the game pages, so I don't understand why you replaced the Urchin and Undergrunt Gunner images there. (Nevermind, I understand the those ones because they are visually distinct.) --Super Mario Fan 67 (TCS) 14:05, July 12, 2019 (EDT)

Fawful Guy[edit]

Hey. Just wanted to tell you that there already is an image of the Bowser Jr's Journey Fawful Guy that already exists in the MLBISBJJ gallery: Alternate sprite of a Fawful Guy from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey.
--Bio of me.ThatOneUniqueToad (talk) 13:03, July 16, 2019 (EDT)

SMB environmental palettes[edit]

Hi, do each of those you just uploaded actually show up in the game (ie Minus World or Lost Levels)? If not, they should be deleted, as they are misleading in that case. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:59, August 4, 2019 (EDT)

Aboutfiles and galleries[edit]

FYI, we don't use that kind of wording: "Mario finds a chest", we use this kind of wording: "Mario finding a chest". For example, a treasure chest, or a chest full of bubbles, as in Dire Dire Docks. --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 06:37, August 5, 2019 (EDT)

Both are equally acceptable. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 08:44, August 5, 2019 (EDT)

Super Mario Bros. 5-8[edit]

I don't recall any of the New Super Mario Bros. games being called "Super Mario Bros. 5-8". Those aren't even common terms. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:14, August 6, 2019 (EDT)

Category linking[edit]

Hey, I noticed you were working on a project in the sandbox and linking to categories. Just so you know, categories can actually be linked to using regular links [[:Category:Whatever it's called|like this]]. Hope this helps! --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 15:23, August 20, 2019 (EDT)

Wario World (Trig)[edit]

I am currently in contact with some people about whether or not we can extract model data for treasures and bosses. If we cannot, please allow me to update the treasure page. Was not sure if you were going to try and get those are not with the wario world kick you are on. Trig - 12:19, August 31, 2019 (EDT)

Transparency[edit]

Just get Paint.net. It's a free, open-source program that's capabilities are somewhere between MS Paint and Photoshop. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:40, October 5, 2019 (EDT)

Also if the sprite sheet doesn't have a transparent background, just use the magic wand to select it (use 0% for one pixel color) and press the delete key. --Pasta937 (talk) 21:21, October 5, 2019 (EDT)
As an additional notice, I'm pretty sure those smaller, orange-using sprites on TSR for the Sharp one are the _hypothetical_ ones if they were at the same size as the other versions. I request you go back through and replace them with the later ones that use the dotted red and yellow, as those are the actual ones to show up last I checked. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:55, October 5, 2019 (EDT)

Second reminder[edit]

This reminder has been overturned by the MarioWiki staff. The original reminder can still be viewed.
Please stop creating redirects for seemingly the sake of creating them 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 you feel this reminder was undeserved, you may appeal it.

I'm referring specifically to this. Please see my message above concerning the creation of redirects on the wiki, or else a warning will be issued. Thanks! Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 09:36, December 8, 2019 (EST)

One, the redirect was legit – they simply confused Sky Station Galaxy with Good Egg Galaxy. Two, it's generally considered common courtesy to give another informal reminder under the original message if the original message was given a while ago. I strongly suggest appealing this. TheDarkStar Sprite of the Dark Star from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey 14:31, December 8, 2019 (EST)
I don't understand this reminder. Overturned. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:27, December 9, 2019 (EST)

Birdo (Yellow) MKT tricks[edit]

You were the one that uploaded the pics for Birdo (Yellow)'s tricks for Mario Kart Tour, right? I'm glad that you contributed to the Trick pics for that game, but the way the pics look are a bit off. Here's what I usually do when I take these:

  • I use the 50cc setting so it can be much easier for me to take the photo.
  • I screenshot the trick at the right time (no one in the way, when they're not spinning, etc.) and crop it just right.
  • I use this site to convert my pics to .png's, and I use the "best quality (lossless compression)" option for the quality.

If you could follow those steps so the pic could look higher quality, not to mention bigger, you'll be alright. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 15:29, April 21, 2020 (EDT)

Super Mario 3D World level table[edit]

Hi, I understand your desire to fix the level table in the Super Mario 3D World article, but the article would do better with close-up screenshots of level icons (you know, the miniature icons found on the world map) instead of screenshots of the levels themselves. Thanks! Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 07:48, May 1, 2020 (EDT)

Candy[edit]

Y'know, I was thinking earlier this morning how we needed images of the MP8 candy transformations, but I didn't have a way to do that myself. So congrats on reading my mind :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:17, May 17, 2020 (EDT)

jpg-png[edit]

If there's clear proof it's a png converted from a jpg, just mark it for deletion. jpg-converted pngs are not allowed. Wolf Link costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 22:20, June 17, 2020 (EDT)

Pepper[edit]

The image I uploaded had worse quality, but it showed the pepper better. Meanwhile, the image you linked had better quality, but it showed less pepper. (It was also hard to distinguish the pepper from the tounge.) Sprite of a Goomba from Super Mario Bros.DarkNightSprite of a Piranha Plant from Super Mario World 15:29, August 17, 2020 (EDT)

Paper Mario: The Origami King stats[edit]

Apparently to get the enemy stats, someone needs to hack into the game's files. It's possible that hasn't been done yet, and usually seems to take quite a while. The game has only been out for one month too. So you should probably cool it with the rewrite-expand notices for now. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Rindo Kanade 06:28, August 19, 2020 (EDT)

YTT Boo sprite[edit]

Hi there. Just letting you know that there are two separate sized Boos at Yoshi Topsy-Turvy#Enemies. The small version you replaced is a unique enemy, and the larger version already exists at File:YTT Big Boo.png.

Dr. Mario World World Screenshot[edit]

I noticed that whenever you upload a screenshot that you have taken from Youtube, it's in PNG form. Unless you are planning to upload a clearer version of the screenshot yourself at a later time, could you please upload them in JPG? This is because the screenshot function in phones tend to be in JPG format, therefore it's more convenient as I don't have to save it as PNG (which would also make the screenshot bloat in size). Winstein (talk) 09:29, December 13, 2020 (EST)

"Frosteor"[edit]

I moved that "Frosteor" page you created to ice crystal. Conjectural names should be simple, yet accurate. "Frosteor" is neither simple (it's an awkward portmanteau) nor accurate (they're not meteors, so the name doesn't fit, even if they're an icy counterpart to the lava pool-making meteors found in the same level). Also, conjectural names must be treated as such; on the meteor article you wrote "Distantly related objects called Frosteors also appear in the Shiverburn Galaxy" as if "Frosteor" was an official name.

On an unrelated note, don't use the word "strangely" in wiki articles. Strangeness is subjective. Dark BonesSig.png 17:54, July 24, 2021 (EDT)
