Re: Archive[edit]

It's here now, but you delete the redirect and you should get a link to the archive from this page. Yoshi876 (talk)

Looks good to me :) Yoshi876 (talk)
This template should be put on the in the archive, just change my username to yours. Yoshi876 (talk)
Good good. Yoshi876 (talk)
I'm creating some templates for a proposal I'm going to make, but I'm waiting a reply that will tell me where the colour map is so I can code the background colours and text properly. Yoshi876 (talk)
I can't remember it, but I do love it. Yoshi876 (talk)
That is a good theme, but one theme I like is from Mario Strikers Charged Yoshi876 (talk)
I just always loved it, but it's the worst course. Yoshi876 (talk)
It is, no gimmicks or audience. My favourite is Thunder Island. Yoshi876 (talk)
Best moment, was I scored, then got hit off the stage. Yoshi876 (talk)
I hate that as well, and I wasn't sure whether you had an image lined up, so I decided it might be an idea. Yoshi876 (talk)
I personally would upload the file, because then *insert logical argument here*, or use existing images like I did with Villager. Yoshi876 (talk)
I hate Spiny Shells and I would probably upload an image before creating the article :P Yoshi876 (talk)
It'll probably be there though :(, and you could go into the editing make the article, don't save it, upload the file and then put in the article and then save the article. Yoshi876 (talk)
It's because it's not multiplayer on the DS so you're not getting in the way. Yoshi876 (talk)
Only with Luigi. Yoshi876 (talk)
First one has more levels, but I like 2's boss battles. Yoshi876 (talk)
I like it coin collecting is tedious, but still. Yoshi876 (talk)
Wasn't long ago, can't really imagine an LP of a sports game. Yoshi876 (talk)
What do they do? I can only think of doing the Strikers cup and challenges mode. Yoshi876 (talk)
Guess you'll find out soon. Yoshi876 (talk)
I love the Luigi's Mansion games, I remember watching someone's LP of it and I remember loving it. Yoshi876 (talk)
There are quite a lot of differences. Yoshi876 (talk)
True, I finally got the new Animal Crossing today. Yoshi876 (talk)
The main goal is to pay off your debt, but you can also fill up the museum and max out the catalouge, but in the new game you're mayor, so you get to improve the town. I find it really relaxing which helps me. Yoshi876 (talk)
If you love relaxing, it's your game, but don't expect hardcore action from it. Yoshi876 (talk)
Same all those first person shooters just get repetitive overtime. Yoshi876 (talk)
Animal Crossing: Wild World, that still occupys my DS slot occasionally, but you're not the mayor on that game. Yoshi876 (talk)
But it's still a good game. Yoshi876 (talk)
So far I am, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Yoshi876 (talk)
You're friends with a few of my friends. Yoshi876 (talk)
That's 3/5 of the people in my userbox tower. Yoshi876 (talk)
We only became friends recently. Yoshi876 (talk)
I've thought pf him as a friend for ages, because he's so helpful. I probably wouldn't be able to do most of the things I can do now if he hadn't helped me, he even gave me the welcome template on my first talkpage. Yoshi876 (talk)
That sounds about right. Yoshi876 (talk)
I know of him, but I can't say we've interacted much. Yoshi876 (talk)
Mine was actually YoshiKong, he messaged me when I was still an IP address. Yoshi876 (talk)
You can message IPs, it's just like a normal talkpage except it doesn't usually get very big. Yoshi876 (talk)
You'd need to find the IP address really. Yoshi876 (talk)
Yep. Yoshi876 (talk)
Especially on the Mario wiki. Yoshi876 (talk)
I can't say how much I've learnt, but it is a lot and it also includes technical aspects of the wiki. Yoshi876 (talk)
One of the most important things on this wiki, the others being the information and the people who put it there. Yoshi876 (talk)
I mean that there are 3 important things on the wiki and the that those are the 3 important things. Yoshi876 (talk)
It'd be a blank page probably, went to Thorpe Park today. Yoshi876 (talk)
It is probably one of the best, it has a lot of famous rides in the UK. And they break down as much, but queues can be quite annoying. Yoshi876 (talk)
No, it was our Yr. 11 leaving trip. Yoshi876 (talk)
No, it's the final year of secondary school. Yoshi876 (talk)
Depends on whether Grade 11 is the final year of high school, I think. I'm not that clue up on the American education system, but I think high school would be the equivalent to secondary school. Yoshi876 (talk)
It'd be the equivalent of Grade 12 then, and then we go onto sixthform/college and then university. Yoshi876 (talk)
Nice, I once watched an LP of Luigi's Mansion, and I enjoyed the whole thing. Yoshi876 (talk)
Yeah, it was alright. Yoshi876 (talk)
I guess we do :P Yoshi876 (talk)
I don't have any vacations planned, but I am on Summer holidays till September. Yoshi876 (talk).
The only reason I have such a long break is because I'm done with my exams, so there's no point for me to be there until September when the new school year starts. Yoshi876 (talk)
Yep, I'm going to our school's sixthform. Yoshi876 (talk)
I'll be taking my A-levels. Yoshi876 (talk)
They're qualifications that are looked at when applying for university or jobs and they are valued more than GCSEs. Yoshi876 (talk)
Qualifications that are looked at by employers and universities, the higher they are the more likely you'll get in, A-levels are the upgrade. Yoshi876 (talk)
Do you know what subjects you'll be taking? Yoshi876 (talk)

Re: Hot Hidden-Coin Hunt[edit]

Lol, someone did it for me. But I'm glad we could help!

Made it meself ;)
Sounds cool. Also, thinking about it were you referring to my sig image or the pic on my userpage?
Sure man! Take this.

RE: Challenges[edit]

Yeah, I'm planning to write more of those. There are a lot left though, so maybe we could both work together? And also, the images aren't that fancy, I just got took a screenshot from a YouTube video. Anyways, if you're fine with it, I'll continue making the articles. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 19:20, 15 June 2013 (EDT)

I'll write two or three articles tomorrow and then upload the images. I don't write the articles in order though. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 21:09, 15 June 2013 (EDT)
Here's the files for No-Cash Dash, Poison-Swamp Scramble, and Swing Into Action, respectively.

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 13:31, 16 June 2013 (EDT)

No prob. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 10:11, 17 June 2013 (EDT)
I'll try to get some maybe later today. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:30, 18 June 2013 (EDT)
Place <div class=shroomsummer> at the top of your talk page. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:45, 18 June 2013 (EDT)
More images, for The Boo Ballet Encore and The Haunted Propeller, respectively:
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 17:51, 18 June 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, that'll work. And sure we can be friends, here's my userbox:

Images for the last three challenge modes (Prickly Goomba's Coinless Run, 200 Clifftop Coins, and Ghost House Coin Curse), respectively.
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 09:51, 22 June 2013 (EDT)
Haha no prob. After all, we're working on this "project" together. Also, have you ever considered joining the forums? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:38, 22 June 2013 (EDT)
Just a place where you can discuss Mario games, etc. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 16:17, 23 June 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, that'll work. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 17:02, 24 June 2013 (EDT)
Images for Big Goomba Bounce Bash and Airship 1-UP Rally, respectively.

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 10:13, 25 June 2013 (EDT)

No problem; I'll do the other two 1-UP Rally levels. Also, there are Special and Boost Mode challenges, should we split those in the same way? Also, I'll be gone next week due to a trip (I'll have internet access but I don't know whether I'll have the time to create any pages), so if I can't do it, would you mind doing the levels for me? Thanks. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:44, 25 June 2013 (EDT)
That's weird, you get back from your trip same time as me! I just moved form Upstate New York last year, so I'm going on a trip there to meet some friends and other stuff. And are you serious that you live in the Midwest, because same here! (I live in Michigan)

Also, S78 (talk) already created the articles I was planning to do. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 16:04, 25 June 2013 (EDT)

He already apologized, saying he didn't know that this was ongoing. Yeah, I'm from Syracuse, but currently I live here (I can't give my exact location), where winters last until May! And also, it's funny how on my trip, I'm going east while you're going west!

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 20:20, 25 June 2013 (EDT)

This place is good to visit, but not to live IMO. And I've lived near the great lakes my whole life, so I'm used to this. (brrr). And my town is really small. Like just today, I went to see a movie, and there were only like, three other people there! O__O --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 20:34, 25 June 2013 (EDT)
My town itself is really small, but the whole micropolitan area has around 30,000 people. The movie I saw was Monsters University (a pretty good film actually), which just came out a few days ago. There was no one else in the theater so I was thinking "Private screening yay" and then a few more came in right after the ads ended. But really, I've never seen a movie as new as this get such a low attendance. If you asked when I was leaving for my trip, then it's this weekend. Anyways, now that S78 did the 1-UP Rally pages, we can split up the Special articles, so I'll do Spin Jump, Get Dizzy and Wobble and Rock, and you can do Castle Crawl and Cashless Castle Crawl, I'll get the images by later today. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 09:37, 26 June 2013 (EDT)
There are only four Special articles, not 5, so we have to split them 2-and-2. I'll upload the images now. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:16, 26 June 2013 (EDT)
Images for Castle Crawl and Cashless Castle Crawl, respectively:
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:28, 26 June 2013 (EDT)
Sorry for the late reply. I've done both of my articles, so now all that's left are the Boost Mode challenges, of which there are twelve, so we'll have to do six each. Since I'm leaving for my trip on Saturday, the only days I have left to work are toay and tomorrow (Saturday), so if I don't finish my articles, would you mind doing them for me? Thanks. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 12:39, 28 June 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, I could do that. And I'll get the Boost Mode images uploaded tomorrow, if not later today. And have a happy Fourth as well! --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 13:01, 28 June 2013 (EDT)

Oh, and I just realized, since we're almost to the end of this "project", why not celebrate with some cake? (It would be more appropriate after completing the articles but since neither of us will be here)....

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 13:01, 28 June 2013 (EDT)

Yeah, that cake is my favorite kind. It sucks that the figurines are inedible though ;P

Anyways, you can do The High Road, Three Legged Lava Race, Fuzzy Cliff Climb, Thwomp Castle Cash Flow, Cloudy with a Chance of Fire, and Ultimate Boost Blast (the last of the Boost Block ones), here are the images:

And as for the Goal Ring picture you requested, I tried to crop it out so it would have just the ring but I could never get the whole part of the ring :( You might want to ask YoshiKong (talk) though, he's kind of an image expert. For the Challenge Mode game mode articles, I don't really know but I kinda think it's unnecessary considering all of them are already listed on the page...I don't know though, I'll have to think about it. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 20:38, 29 June 2013 (EDT)

LOL, I still have two hours before I leave (I hit the road at 9AM eastern). I will have internet access tomorrow, so I'll try to get the articles completed then. And if not, you could do them, right?

And, "Mario would taste like cherry" you actually meant this, right? :P And since I haven't asked yet, are you doing anything fun on your trip? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 07:27, 30 June 2013 (EDT)

I have Internet for a few hours today so I'll get to doing the articles. If you need to finish them just get the images from my recent uploads page. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 07:04, 1 July 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, I did. I'm in New York now. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 19:47, 1 July 2013 (EDT)
  • throws confetti* I've completed mine as well. And also remember how I told you last week about how I saw Monsters U on opening day and here were only like 3 others in the theatre? Today I saw the Despicable Me 2 premiere here in Buffalo and the theatre was jam packed! Talk about population :P And also, Pinkie Pie (talk) already created Icicle Falls before I got to it. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 21:43, 2 July 2013 (EDT)
U stalker o__O Yeah I live close to there. Now if you'll excuse me I've got a vacation to enjoy (Super Mario Sunshine reference)! I might come on the wiki maybe once or twice a day, but I won't be doing anything major. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 07:52, 3 July 2013 (EDT)
Nothing major really planned for the near future (except packing for another trip, this one is on Sunday). Wiki-wise, there was a recent proposal that implements standard intros for subpages (glitches, beta elements, staff lists, etc.), and a lot of people (including me) are working on getting those up to date. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:25, 12 July 2013 (EDT)

RE: Swing into Action![edit]

No, because the exclamation point from the "Walking Piranha Plants!" word already suffices as the end of the sentence --- no periods after exclamation points. It's a basic rule. --- ThePremiumYoshi 11:19, 18 June 2013 (EDT)

Re: MarioWiki:Maintenance/Main Page[edit]

RE: MarioKartManiac & Yoshi876 Discussion (July 2013)[edit]

Yep, because I'm guessing like in England you can drop subjects when you get older. Yoshi876 (talk)

Fair enough, my userpage states my preferred career choices. Yoshi876 (talk)
What games would you do, Mario Kart games don't seem to be good for an LP. Yoshi876 (talk)
I've always been slightly interested in the Scribblenauts series, but I've never actually bought one of the games. Yoshi876 (talk)
I'm not near any shops at the moment, I might have to look in and see if one is getting sold. Yoshi876 (talk)
I'll probably pick up the most recent one, and I guess I'll see you later. Yoshi876 (talk)
Marvel is alright, I watch the odd one here and there, but I don't read comic books. Yoshi876 (talk)
I enjoy a lot of other things over them. Yoshi876 (talk)
Mario Kart is good, everyone loves it. Yoshi876 (talk)
I don't usually plan my edits, I have some thing that I will do on my userpage, but usually I just occasionally hit random page and see if I can find a mistake or revert vandalism. Also have you seen MarioWiki:BJAODN and MarioWiki:Proposals? I think you might like those, especially the former. Yoshi876 (talk)
To make a proposal you basically decide what category it falls under, then you edit that section making your proposal an why you think it's a good idea, basically when I make mine, I usually copy the deadline and proposer stuff from another proposal but change it accordingly. But obviously just look at how others are structured so you know how to structure yours. And BJAODN is the place where really bad, but funny edits are archived. It's quite a laugh to read through, and I have even found some stuff to go in there. Yoshi876 (talk)
Rule 15 states that there shouldn't be proposals about making new articles unless there is a major disagreement on whether it should be added. I don't think anyone on the wiki would say no to that page so I suggest to just go ahead and make it. Yoshi876 (talk)
If you have an idea that would improve the wiki, but would need support to do so rather than just doing it, like creating a new template, changing an already existing feature. Yoshi876 (talk)
See you then, I made a new article today. Yoshi876 (talk)
Yes I am, I also applied to write for The Shroom yesterday, and enjoy your vacation. Yoshi876 (talk)
Thanks, hopefully I'm accepted and you can enjoy my section. Yoshi876 (talk)
Someone's been very busy today ;) Yoshi876 (talk)
I'm lucky with that the pages I created don't need things to link to them, apart from the Yoshi's Island one, which required link, categories, redirect delete. From what I've heard opinion on my section is good. Yoshi876 (talk)
The WarioWare articles I made don't have a lot of bytes, but there's not much to go in them, some articles are just destined to be small. Whilst you were gone I: applied for The Shroom (talked about), had my braces removed, joined the forums, and had a vandal claim to be my brother. Also LeftyGreenMario is a girl. Yoshi876 (talk)
I believe it'll get changed when the game is released, which will be July 12. Yoshi876 (talk)
Thanks, although it will remain 4, it should be mentioned that there is 1 upcoming, I used the Yoshi (series) to confirm this. Yoshi876 (talk)
Actually it'll be July 11. The day after today will be July 12 for me. Yoshi876 (talk)
1 hour and 23 minutes. Yoshi876 (talk)
It says Europe is where it's being released, let the update begin, I'll see tomorrow at some point. Yoshi876 (talk)
Good luck with that :) Yoshi876 (talk)
Hopefully, but unfortunately, I'm pretty broke so I can't buy it for a while. Yoshi876 (talk)
The 3DS does already have a good library of games, so you'll be spoilt for choice. Yoshi876 (talk)
Exactly, there's Yoshi's New Island and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. Yoshi876 (talk)
It looks decent, I may need to pick it up when it comes out. Yoshi876 (talk)
It would be good, but if someone's connection ran out half way through it'd have a bigger impact on Mario Party then it does on Mario Kart. Yoshi876 (talk)
Would be quite short, but possible. Yoshi876 (talk)
True, who knows maybe they'll introduce it as production goes on. Yoshi876 (talk)
And apparently Mario Kart 8, will have some of the best multiplayer the series has seen. Yoshi876 (talk)
I only did online with my friend so I can't really say how great it was. Yoshi876 (talk)
Don't know why, but I don't really do the online stuff. Yoshi876 (talk)
Everyone leaves when you do well, and that's really annoying. Yoshi876 (talk)
Rage quitting is ridiculous. Yoshi876 (talk)
Best glitch I ever had was on Mario Kart 7, my mate hit me with a star and I just bounced with no ill effects. Yoshi876 (talk)
I got told that a bot would be created to do that considering it has 1000+ links. Yoshi876 (talk)
Nice, granted should worst come to the worst I'm still available for the deletion of the links. Also, do you have a YouTube link to a match where the star glitch happened? Yoshi876 (talk)
I'll pass on that one, it's not the most important thing. By the way new issue of The Shroom out, one of the new writers looks really good. Yoshi876 (talk)
Try and find me Yoshi876 (talk)
I know about CSI, I love the show. In fact I'm currently watching Season 5 of it, I also watched its spin-offs CSI Miami and CSI New York. And science was the true murderer of the Lakitus. Yoshi876 (talk)
Roughly, and I guess CSI was do successful in America they decided to try it over here. Yoshi876 (talk)
It would not! Me and several other users put in some hard work to get that featured. I remember facepalming when I saw the reason though. Yoshi876 (talk)
Fair enough, I only keep track of pages I create and files I upload. Yoshi876 (talk)
Mine's black. Yoshi876 (talk)
I've only played 2 of those games, and I confirm both are good. Yoshi876 (talk)
I don't exactly remember, but I know it was around March, April time. I remember my brother was going into town for a job interview so I gave him the money to stop into Game and buy it for me. Yoshi876 (talk)
I can't remember, I'd check, but I don't have the game with me. I think I'm somewhere in Secret Mine. Yoshi876 (talk)
I haven'r played it in a while an I don't have it on me at the moment :P Yoshi876 (talk)

Which article are you planning to split? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 12:29, 13 July 2013 (EDT)
You mean the Challenge Mode level images? Nothing special, they're just screenshots from YouTube videos which I watched to write the articles (since I don't actually own the game) --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 15:39, 13 July 2013 (EDT)
Hey what's up? --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 22:14, 14 July 2013 (EDT)
No it's just that I have crappy wifi :P The reason I renamed is because I use "Driftmaster130" on YouTube and everywhere else, so I wanted to keep things consistent. Oh, that that was some awesome music, thanks for sharing. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 10:48, 15 July 2013 (EDT)
Let me guess...Rainbow Road? :D And as for the project, I'll help with it but I won't be able to really do anything until Sunday, as I don't get home until then.
On another note, yesterday I went to the Mall of America and tried out Pikmin 3!
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 10:27, 16 July 2013 (EDT)
I like all Rainbow Road tracks (minus the one from Super Mario Kart). Oh, and that article thing kinda sounded like a song you might see in a Mario movie o_O but I could still help with the articles once I get back home.

Speaking of traveling, yeah I'm going to chill for the next few months or so. But yeah, living up in Michigan, you kind of have to escape to the outside world once in a few months.... --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 15:02, 17 July 2013 (EDT)

You're a geography nerd too? I went through upper Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan while coming back from the city yesterday and they're all the same; just miles and miles of forest with another car passing by every half might sound cool but the scary part is the isolation. I have a friend here in Michigan who doesn't even know what Target is o_O
Anyways, I saw your recent contributions and are you making articles for New Super Luigi U Levels? I could help with that by uploading images (which is more my thing) and maybe creating some pages.
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 08:52, 20 July 2013 (EDT)
There's a difference between not knowing what something is because you don't have one near you or because you have one but never bothered to go there...I could help with creating some NSLU articles. And also, do you want to make this a chat header like you did with Yoshi876?

Re: New Super Mario Bros. (series)[edit]

Hello MarioKartManiac. Unfortunately, the series doesn't warrant a page, as it's minor to the Super Mario (series) page. If you look at the deletion log at New Super Mario Bros. (series), then you'll see that it can been deleted many times before. If you did wish to continue with it, then I suggest that you create a proposal first, in order to gain community approval.

Apologies for the delayed response. The thing is, the Super Mario (series) page already covers all those the games that fit in the naming class "Super Mario", including the "New" installments. It doesn't need to be broken up, the way I see it. Also, the games you mentioned such as Super Mario Kart are already part of a different series all together, because the naming convention was changed for the latter Mario Kart titles and emerged as it's own series.
I'll be able to obtain some screenshots sometime next week.

Drift and MKM chat[edit]

Same here, I had heard of Burger King a lot but had never been there until as of two weeks ago. I guess I'll start with some NSLU level pages as there are a lot of redlinks. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 10:03, 22 July 2013 (EDT)

Unfortunately not, I can't afford one so I'm hoping to get one as a birthday or Christmas present. If and when I get my hands on a 3DS, my games of choice would be (at least one) Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Pokemon X and Y, and Animal Crossing New Leaf. And yeah, I agree, the Double Dash Rainbow Road theme is the best out of all of them.

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 15:35, 24 July 2013 (EDT)

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 18:24, 25 July 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, I agree that MK7 is a pretty good game. Neverplayed LMDM though....My birthday is in November, so most of the time, my birthday and Christmas presents get combined. But still, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a 3DS. The only problem is that I can afford games but not a console... :\ In the meantime, I guess I'll cheer myself up by working on my colossal Minecraft project.

I'll probably listen to that later today, I have to go on a boat shortly.
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 11:27, 29 July 2013 (EDT)
It was a small boat trip out in Lake was free so I'm like "why not". CRAP...I haven't listened to the MMMM yet...I'll go do that now.
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 18:29, 1 August 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, I listened to it...great theme, I used it as background music in my Let's Plays. Anyways (I know you're not a fan of the game but), I just picked up a copy of Pikmin 3 and it was the last one left at my local GameStop (it's the only one for about 150 miles) :D Anyways, do you own a Wii U?
--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 16:19, 4 August 2013 (EDT)


Sorry for the lack of a reply. I was inactive for the last few days. Anyway, the reason I decide to use "Mario" instead of "the player" is that it avoids a potential pronoun problem ("they" doesn't agree with "player" and "he or she" sounds odd). And also, I recall that "Mario" was used in other level related articles even if Luigi had the option to be playable, so it made sense for me to use "Mario".

He/she looks even messier than he or she. I use "he or she" at the last resort. I replace "the player" with Mario in many level articles I come across, especially if the wording is inconsistent. In Super Mario 64 related pages, for instance, I do this, and I think it's a good idea to do so.

I don't recall changing any other articles from "player" to "Mario", but if you see them, make the appropriate changes.

I'm okay with that. Thanks!

Thanks. Right now, I'm in a middle of something strenuous and important: uploading better pictures of stickers, plus showing their actual size. It's a heavy task that I'm doing by myself right now. Basically, I have to upload every single one because either the quality is bad or it's not the actual sticker.

I'll probably continue with it a bit when I get home. Yoshi876 (talk)

I'm currently watching TV to find out who the next Doctor Who is. Yoshi876 (talk)
It' Britain's greatest show. Yoshi876 (talk)
Doctor Who's been running since 1963. Yoshi876 (talk)
We treat our shows that do well with respect, sometimes even the ones that don't get renewed for more series. Yoshi876 (talk)
I've heard lots about that, and the fact that you need to pay for healthcare. But we've got a topical news show that's been running since 1990. Yoshi876 (talk)
Simpsons and Futurama come to mind, maybe South Park. Yoshi876 (talk)
I always use wireless internet :P Yoshi876 (talk)
You beat me at Mario Kart, preposterous. Yoshi876 (talk)
Don't worry, I was in Paris anyway. Yoshi876 (talk)

Re: Goal Ring Images[edit]

Deep apologies for the delayed response. I'm afraid that I won't be able to obtain the images for a while. My activity is going to take a tumble indefinitely, and until I have consistent internet access again I'm going to have to hold off trying to capture those images. I'm so sorry.

I've been trying to teach myself to play that one on the piano for a while....I actually laughed when you said Marquette is super close, it's actually a two and half hour drive from where I live lol. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 10:26, 6 August 2013 (EDT)

I've been asking myself that question for the past year....I realized you asked about Pikmin last time and I didn't see it, so without giving too many spoiler details:

In Pikmin 1, you take the role of Captain Olimar who crash-lands on a strange planet while exploring in space; you discover Pikmin (three colors, red, blue, yellow each with their own strengths and weaknesses), and with there help you have to recover all the pieces of your spaceship which are scattered across the planet.

In Pikmin 2, Olimar must return to the planet with his colleague, Louie, and collect treasures to pull their shipping company out of debt. Two new Pikmin, (purple and white) are introduced in this game.

I'm kinda running short on time to explain Pikmin 3, so here's the page.

--driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 17:39, 11 August 2013 (EDT)
There are versions of Pikmin and Pikmin 2 for the Wii system. What Mario games are you hoping to get?

Those were both good, but nothing compared to the last one ;P Never played NSMB2 though. BTW, when do you start school? Mine starts in two weeks (but I have a pre-exam tomorrow >:()

Sorry for not responding, I was blocked for the past two weeks thanks to a vandal who shares my Internet.

Yeah, it was this guy >:(

Oh, and I missed your birthday? That sucks. I would give you a cake right now but I'm in kind of a hurry and I have school tomorrow, so I'll just post it when I'm free later, and listen to the 4M. It seems thatVG music is all I listen to these days....

Yeah, those were definitely the days, even though they were just three months ago lol. I hope I can get a 3DS sometime because I really want to play ACNL :'( --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 17:51, 16 September 2013 (EDT)
Wait, it's still summer? Up here it's already below freezing, though no snow yet :( I don't know what else to put on my 3DS wishlist, but probably Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D World. Also, I laughed at the term "Black Friday Shopping", it reminded me of the fact that there aren't many options of it up here since our mall has just 3 stores, lol. --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 22:08, 16 September 2013 (EDT)
Super Bowl was in Indy to buy a Wii U? How can a major sporting event just go to a city to buy a gaming console that wasn't even out then, lol. Yeah, I also went there when they had the Super Bowl but didn't see much, it would be cool if we ran into each other there (except I wasn't on the wiki back then, lol)
Yeah I hate Microsoft and Xbox as well, except Minecraft for Xbox is pretty cool. Other than that, Xbox sucks, pretty much.

Compared to your score...I totally suck at that game. BRB beating over 9000 point ;)

Have you check if all race tracks article has included map courses on their page (excluding battle course)?

I have not, and I don't intend to as when you edit large pages it also removes large amounts of info. Yoshi876 (talk)
