Mario (talk)


Tails is awesome! He even appears in this wiki, due to Mario and Sonic being allowed on this wiki.

Currently not autoconfirmed[edit]

Sigh... The only pages I can create are talk pages. I have to make 5 edits and wait 4 days to become autoconfirmed. --Gizmocat444 (talk) 18:42, 23 November 2014 (EST)

Well, it's not going to take too long. Just make good edits, ask questions if you need help on anything, and it won't take long. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 18:50, 23 November 2014 (EST)
Yeah, I know, your edits are good-faith, so don't worry. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 18:54, 23 November 2014 (EST)
You're welcome. :) Also, it's not necessarily to create a new section every time you reply in my talk page. Just edit the existing section so there isn't a whole lot of headers.

Yes, it's good edits. But a good rule of thumb is refrain from leaving messages on vandal talk pages. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 19:38, 23 November 2014 (EST)

Hey, can you stop conversing with banned accounts? Thanks. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 19:33, 23 November 2014 (EST)

OK. --Gizmocat444 (talk) 19:35, 23 November 2014 (EST)


How do I become an admin? --Gizmocat444 (talk) 20:34, 27 November 2014 (EST)

Look here: , follow these rules for a pretty long time and you will become one. ~~ Boo4761
Not necessarily (they're just general guidelines anyhow), and it's not like being a Patroller is so glamorous and all. Ultimately, it's just people trusting your judgement and giving you a bigger toolset. As they said, "Please note that fulfilling these criteria does not automatically make you a sysop or a patroller. It will, however, make you a better user." Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 20:39, 30 November 2014 (EST)


How do I become a patroller? --Gizmocat444 (talk) 18:41, 3 December 2014 (EST)

Same as admin (follow the link in the above section). But your constant messaging, as well as your persistent creation of blocked user talkpages, is becoming bothersome. If you continue, you may get warning templates placed here. River Piranha (talk) 06:25, 6 December 2014 (EST)
It looks like this or this. River Piranha (talk) 06:48, 7 December 2014 (EST)


Hello, Gizmocat444. 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.

|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|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.

Please pay attention to correctly formatting the aboutfile template in the future. Thanks. River Piranha (talk) 14:14, 7 December 2014 (EST)

Um, those images he uploaded were personal images, since I had no idea where he would put them in mainspace, so Gizmocat does not deserve this, but if he is reading this, please remember to put the personal image tag on those images. ~~ Boo4761

Whoa, seems like I made a mistake. Gizmocat444 can't really appeal an aboutfile reminder, since it's not an official warning template, so what should be done? River Piranha (talk) 14:21, 7 December 2014 (EST)


I know, but remember to add the personal image tag so no one thinks it's mainspace. And the warning River Piranha gave you, you don't deserve it at all. ~~ Boo4761


You're OK to call me Gizmo. :) --Gizmocat444 (talk) 14:27, 7 December 2014 (EST)

Welcoming users[edit]

Hi. Please only welcome users after they have made a constructive edit to the wiki. We only want talkpages for contributive members. Yoshi876 (talk)

Personal image warning[edit]


You currently have too many personal images.

Users are limited to a maximum of five personal images, which can be used on your user page and/or for a signature on talk pages (see the personal image policy for details). Please select the personal images you would like to keep and mark all others for deletion using the {{delete}} template. If you have not relinquished your extra images within one week of receiving this notice, five images will be selected for retention at random, and the rest will be deleted. If you continue uploading more images and exceeding the limit, then a warning will be issued.

You are only allowed 4 personal images, you currently have 7. Please select 3 of these to be tagged for deletion, or they will be deleted at random.

I will move 5 of them to my talk page. --Merry Christmas! (talk) 09:42, 13 December 2014 (EST)

I am moving some pictures to other pages.

I now have 4 personal images. --Merry Christmas! (talk) 10:08, 13 December 2014 (EST)

RE:User talk[edit]

No reason is required. The account was blocked before you even made that comment, which you shouldn't have even bothered to make. If you ever create a talk page for a banned user then you will receive a warning. Yoshi876 (talk)


Dear Gizmocat444,

It has come to our attention that you are currently in violation of the userspace policy. Please review the policy and abide by it, or else a warning will be issued. Thank you for your cooperation.

you have made several Userspace edits per mainspace edits in your short time in being here. Please put forth a bit for effort to improve that ratio.

Thank you, 3D Player 2010 12:06, 14 December 2014 (EST)

Watch your edits[edit]

Careful...some of your recent edits have consisted of telling admins what to do and getting your nose in their business. This can get you in serious trouble, so it may be more worthwile to focus on editing articles instead (especially with your userspace warning above).
