Found one more: File:Mermaid Mario Princesses.jpeg --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:52, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Just saw it, thanks. When I did a search, it turned up an Etsy page as well. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 21:53, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
Unless this image was featured in Nintendo Power or something, yes, delete them. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:55, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
Even if it was in Nintendo Power, fan art is fan art, so out the window it goes. I think we got all the copies. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 21:57, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

OK then. Now onto a different subject. Can you restore File:DonkeyKongMrMen.jpg and tag it with {{image-quality}} instead? I was debating how to insert it into List of references in animated television, unless the ape isn't Donkey Kong being referenced. Just not sure how to insert it. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:03, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

I deleted it mostly because it seemed like a generic "giant monkey does a thing" image, but, as requested, I'll leave that up to editorial discretion. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 22:06, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
Where is that discussion taking place? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:08, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
'Editorial discretion' is diplomatic code for 'whatever body of people that is working the relevant articles will figure out how useful this image is'. So, since you made the request, the discussion is taking place wherever you start it. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 22:10, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
OK, thanks. Talk:List of references in animated television it is. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:11, 24 May 2016 (EDT)


File:MLPJTrioAttack.png - The chain was there because I wasn't entirely sure if File:MLPJTrioAttack.jpg would be an acceptable replacement for File:Mario & Luigi Paper Jam File 05.png. Just thought I clarify that for you. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:52, 27 May 2016 (EDT)

Three Deletions[edit]

Probably a good idea to restore these or not have them deleted just yet. They are OK images for a certain episode(s) of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! but I am not sure which episode(s) they belong to. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:27, 27 May 2016 (EDT)

Per conferring with team, we'll leave File:Stonetoad.jpg up for now, pending it either A. being used or B. identifying the episode it's from and if the article needs images or not. The other two were actually pretty raspy compared to what we currently have in other articles on the same subject, so new screen captures should be made in those cases anyway. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 00:36, 28 May 2016 (EDT)
Side idea: Makes me wonder if all images for each TV show based on the Mario universe should require a certain shorthand prefix (such as SyyEzz where y and z represent numbers) to make TV screenshots of episodes easier to identify. In the case of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, just Ezz because only one season. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 02:06, 28 May 2016 (EDT)
It's not a rule, but ideally the images would be named, if even in short hand, after the show and episode they are intended for. IE: Super Mario Bros. Super Show, Season 1, Episode 1 would be SMBSS_S1E1 or something similar the editor consensus comes up with. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 22:41, 28 May 2016 (EDT)

Problem With Your Signature[edit]

I think there is a problem with your inserting of your signature. It keeps inserting raw code found in User:Ghost Jam/sig instead of {{User:Ghost Jam/sig}}. Check Special:Preferences to make sure it is setup correctly. See Help:Signature#Preparing for usage for details. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:24, 29 May 2016 (EDT)

I've been meaning to fix that for a while. My sig was set up way before we ever had standards outside of putting a size and number limit on sig images. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 22:33, 29 May 2016 (EDT)

Edits on mobile Mario wiki[edit]

Hi. I'm TheUnknown67. I don't use Mario Wiki a lot (and of course, I'm new to it), but I know the basics of editing articles. Do you know how to mark edits on the mobile version of mario wiki? I use my phone to make edits, but I don't see a mark edit as minor option.

Under the edit summary box should be two click boxes labeled "This is a minor edit." and "Watch this page." Click the box next to "This is a minor edit." before saving your changes. If the box isn't there, do the following:
1. Log into your account on a PC.
2. Click on Preferences next to your username.
3. Click on the Editing tab.
4. Click the box that's labeled "Mark all edits minor by default." and save your changes.
-- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 22:48, 29 May 2016 (EDT)
OK. Thanks.

Your sig[edit]

Is it fine to reupload your sprite with transparency? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 22:21, 30 May 2016 (EDT)

Sure. I had actually taken the image from our archives long before we had image standards. :D -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 15:31, 31 May 2016 (EDT)
Done! Hope you like it. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:42, 31 May 2016 (EDT)


I saw you were deleting. I checked the pages to be sure nothing was linking to them. One page has links: Special:WhatLinksHere/File:YoshisWoollyWorld_NABoxart.jpg. Can you edit the pages to link to File:YWW NA Boxart.png instead? I can't because only sysops can edit. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:28, 9 July 2016 (EDT)

Being that it's apparently an unmarked Shroom image, I restored it so they can decide if they want to keep it for those issue or not. The other not edit protected pages are userpages and I tend to not manually change those unless it's important. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 18:13, 9 July 2016 (EDT)

It's very suck[edit]

Hello Ghost Jam, i have a problem, i Forget my password (but i'm connected) and i want change my password but i can't, and i can't look e-mail, You can't help ? --'''''[[User:Captain Yoshi|Captain Yoshi]]''''' (talk) 10:05, 30 November 2016 (EST)

Only bureaucrats can reset passwords. I've passed the word along. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 17:41, 2 December 2016 (EST)

Can you revent my user page back to how it was before I make any edits on it?[edit]

I pasted a link on March 2016 on my user page in order to find a program to get free money, but of course, I had to pay first for it, so I removed it right the next minute. After that, my page was still accessible, but it had absolutely nothing ot it. Plus, I don't plan to edit my user page anytime soon (probably never again), because... I just don't want to put anything to it. I have absolutely no plans to put something on my user page at all. Gold Luigi (talk) 12:19, 28 January 2017 (EST)

For you, 'before I made edits on it' would be before the page move, so no. I can outright delete it, if you like. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 21:11, 31 January 2017 (EST)
Well, I don't have a problem with the outtight deletion, as long as it doesn't revent my username to 'Sarantis'. Gold Luigi (talk) 15:02, 6 February 2017 (EST)
Done. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 17:36, 6 February 2017 (EST)

Private Message[edit]

I wish to get in contact with you privately, but I can't e-mail you. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:02, 20 July 2017 (EDT)

...what a shame. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 03:07, 20 July 2017 (EDT)
It's imperative that I e-mail you because you have my gratitude and I want to be in compliance of rules. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:16, 20 July 2017 (EDT)
Just drop it, man. Go back to business as usual. I'm under the impression you don't have a forum account, that would be a good place to start for extended discussion. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 03:19, 20 July 2017 (EDT)
Noted. Yes, no forum account, because at the time of my registration, didn't want more accounts to keep track of. Times have changed for me since my registry, so maybe I should. I guess I'll have to do that if I want to get in direct contact with you, unless you blocked PM-ing. Bummer if that is the case, because I have something very good I wanted to tell you directly, but I hope you got the hint based on what I said so far. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:27, 20 July 2017 (EDT)


Thanks for ending the coverage debate, man. It was going on for far too long. (DON'T KILL ME, I WASN'T GOING TO CONTINUE THE DISCUSSION!) Luigi Emblem 14:17, 20 July 2017 (EDT)

I'm bored! (just kidding)[edit]

How are you doing? I hope you're having a nice day. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 23:02, 1 August 2017 (EDT)

"administrative deletion"[edit]

I've been combing through the proposal page's history for a recently passed proposal, and I noticed a proposal that you withdrew with the following reason: "Removed proposal, subject was of a technical nature and impossible to implement. This is an administrative deletion and should not be added to the formal archive." Forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't all proposals supposed to be archived, per rule 12? There are quite a few other proposals that were vetoed by admins but were still archived. I haven't seen the term "administrative deletion" used for any other proposal either. Would it be an issue if I were to add it into the proposal archives? Hello, I'm Time Turner. 16:40, 10 September 2017 (EDT)

There are a few other instances of 'administrative deletion', but yeah. At one time, Walkazo had the thought to remove proposals that tried to dick with hard and fast rules as a sort of 'see this? No.'. It was after the one you linked there that she changed her mind. So, yeah, basically, rule 12, feel free to archive. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 21:38, 13 September 2017 (EDT)


Hi, I know your vote on this proposal I initiated used to be valid due to the proposal being rushed out and having an overflow of options as a result at the time, but now it's not since I learned from some of my mistakes and changed it again to just featuring three options. Is it okay if I just go ahead and strike through it? Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 22:34, 22 December 2018 (EST)

Loading Area image[edit]

The glitch it was showing was how held objects change if taken into a different loading area, it was inexplicably removed after that page got an overhaul. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:17, April 30, 2019 (EDT)

Bring it up on the talk page for Mario 64 glitches as to why it was deleted in the first place. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 00:23, April 30, 2019 (EDT)
Pretty sure it's been brought up there, it's just never really gotten a full response. The entire page was restructured due to trying to be in line with findings of YouTuber Pannenkoek, so it was probably just an oversight. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:24, April 30, 2019 (EDT)
Well, if you intend to reinstate the missing section, I can restore the image for it. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 00:27, April 30, 2019 (EDT)


Hello. I hear you help with any matter on the wiki. I need some help and some people have not responded to me about edits I cannot make myself. Would you be willing to assist me? If so, please reply to me on my talk page. Lord Falafel (talk) 20:38, July 13, 2019 (EDT)
