Names in Other Languages[edit]

Hello, I noticed you edited many Names in Other Languages sections, particularly Romanian and Dutch names. You have removed some of them, so I'd like to ask if you are sure these names are irrelevant. -Sudowoodo (talk) 08:10, 19 August 2014 (EDT)

Multiple edits[edit]

You aren't supposed to do so much edits in a row like you did in Hazy Maze Cave. From now on if you have to edit multiple sections click the edit button at the top and edit them all at once, thanks. YoshiCGicon.pngTSUNAMIArtwork of Plessie with the four playable characters, from Super Mario 3D World.


Pantaro first posted it here, when I thought it was actually Walkazo posting the edit summary and that. I was taking a break from working with my mods when I first saw it, and I couldn't believe my eyes nor what my mind comprehended when I clicked to see that edit. I really thought Pantaro was a troll or something, but how could trolls access bureaucrat's accounts, as it was posted under Walkazo's name? So I brought it up in Wiki chat and they pretty much confirmed that it was genuine and that Pantaro is her brother. No, I'm not related to Walkazo but yes, her death made me realize how much I really loved and cared about her... BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:31, 30 March 2016 (EDT)

I don't mean to be rude but I had a childhood friend who died the exact same way as walkazo and I really don't want to be reminded of her every time I look at the main page, especially since she was also a big mario fan, so if someone could do something about it that would be nice. I have a type of personality disorder which causes me to have emotional stress triggered much more easily than most other people

Uh, sorry, that's not going to change. The only thing I can say right now is to avoid the main page until we finish grieving for Walkazo. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:17, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Re: Username[edit]

You'll have to ask Glowsquid (talk) or just post a request on this page. Probably better to go with the second one. - Turboo (talk) 18:52, 26 April 2016 (EDT)

Americas and Oceania[edit]

When they said you could change Australia to Oceania but keep North America as-is, they meant to keep North America as-is and not change it to "the Americas." So go ahead and change every release date mention of Australia, but leave America alone, please. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:01, 15 July 2017 (CT)

Ugh, sorry for hurting America! It won't happen again! Gold Luigi (talk) 05:03, 15 July 2017 (EDT)
Thank you. Now it probably will occur that that part will eventually go through, but for now, keep the Americas as-is. Keep up the good work. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:07, 15 July 2017 (CT)

Changing names[edit]

Keep in mind that whenever you change the name of a mainspace article, an image, or anything else, you're also responsible for fixing all of the links so that they use the current name rather than the foreign name. For example, everything that links to File:Flag of Europe.png should be changed so that they link to File:Flag of European Union.png. Linking to redirects instead of the direct source is discouraged by policy. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 17:32, 6 August 2017 (EDT)

Oh my god... this is gonna take forever. Rip me. Can I start tomorrow? Gold Luigi (talk) 17:42, 6 August 2017 (EDT)
Start whenever you're ready, just make sure you get it done. This also goes for File:Flag of HK.png and File:Flag of ROC.png. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 17:49, 6 August 2017 (EDT)
*sigh* Is there any way to change them all with just one edit? Gold Luigi (talk) 18:04, 6 August 2017 (EDT)
Porplemontage (talk) might get a bot to make all those edits for you if you explain this to him. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:26, 6 August 2017 (EDT)

I was going to give you a spiel about rolling up your sleeves and getting to work, but now that I've looked into it, the issue is a bit more complicated than that. The flags are appearing on pages through the use of Template:Release, and they are called using the names of the files. For example, {{release|Japan|November 1, 2007}} would cause the Japanese flag to appear, as the name of the original image is File:Flag of Japan.png. Since these names are going to be referenced often, they're named in such a way that they're convenient to reference, which is why it's Flag of USA.png and not "Flag of the United States of America.png". With that in mind, it may be best to keep the flags with their original names. Yes, the flag that we're using for "Europe" is really for the European Union, but we've still called it "Europe" because it's more convenient for editors, and those are the people who are going to be using it the most. If you had to type "Hong Kong" on dozens of pages, as you dreaded doing, you'd also prefer having a more convenient alternative, which is why the name of the file is "Flag of HK.png". Your heart's in the right place, but I'd say we should leave things as they were. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 18:31, 6 August 2017 (EDT)

Yeah, that's what I'm also thinking, but I'm still not sure if they should stay with their original name. I'll let you know if I change my mind. Until then, DO NOT use the new names. Gold Luigi (talk) 18:34, 6 August 2017 (EDT)
After some thinking, I actually decided to change the current names back to their original names. Should I do it, or will you do it for me? And just to let you know, I did those changes on the main page for MK7, so I'm not sure if this changes anything, but if it does, go do the changes there if you want. Gold Luigi (talk) 18:50, 6 August 2017 (EDT)
Actually never mind, I changed them. Gold Luigi (talk) 03:38, 7 August 2017 (EDT)


The Power Moon color chart already indicates that there are Power Stars in place of Moons in the Mushroom Kingdom. Don't see a reason not to show that the Darker Side's only Power Moon is a Multi Moon. Dark BonesSig.png 18:49, 17 November 2017 (EST)


Hi. Although I'm not 100% sure these games have been localized by iQue, there is an article on a Chinese website implying that it has been so in general:

这之后,神游彻底放弃了在中国大陆单独发行游戏的计划,转型为任天堂的外包基地,一方面为任天堂在海外发售的港版、台版等游戏做简体中文的本土化及测试工作,扮演“官方汉化组”的角色;另一方面 [...]

After this, iQue completely gave up the plan to release game titles in Mainland China on its own, and instead became an outsourcing base of Nintendo. It began doing Simplified Chinese localization and testing for oversea editions of Nintendo games such as the Hong Kong and Taiwan versions, playing the role of the "official localization group" for Nintendo, while [...]


Pokémon Sun and Moon, like all the games that hadn't been released in [mainland] China but offered Simplified Chinese content, was localized by iQue into Simplified Chinese.

That's what I suppose. User:H.N.K. might know more. --Dine2017 (talk) 07:55, 18 December 2017 (EST)

  • Well, you shouldn't include any Wii games, since they were never translated to Simplified Chinese. You shouldn't also include Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, since these games WERE released in China. Gold Luigi (talk) 08:13, 18 December 2017 (EST)


I left you a message here. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 12:12, 8 February 2018 (EST)


Most of the time when you upload a new image, you have to refresh the page by pressing Ctrl+F5. The page glitches and shows the previous image revision instead upon uploading, so you have to bypass it.
Additionally, can you upload the legend with the map as well, so people know what the colors mean? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:38, 10 February 2018 (EST)

I'll put the legend in the Summary, so that other people can easily fix typographical and grammatical errors. Also, how should I exactly name it? I don't think people will understand it as "Legend". Gold Luigi (talk) 16:41, 10 February 2018 (EST)
"Legend" or "key" are the usual words to use. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:45, 10 February 2018 (EST)

The latest revision can't be deleted/edited, unfortunately. What you can do, though, is upload it again but with the same summary as when you first uploaded it ("Separated Nintendo Co., Ltd." etc. though you may want to make it shorter to fit the URL), and I can delete the other four revisions. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 17:50, 10 February 2018 (EST)

IT'S DONE!!! You can finally delete the other revisions!!! I did make a tiny edit in this new one (I recolored Belize from Grey to Brown); I hope this doesn't affect anything. Gold Luigi (talk) 19:41, 10 February 2018 (EST)


Please don't flip out in edit summaries. If there's a problem with a user's edits, leave them a message. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 07:10, 26 August 2018 (EDT)


Hey, I saw your message you left me. I honestly wasn't aware of that and just thought people weren't putting their Japanese names because they were being lazy. I only did that because I was trying to be as true to the Japanese names as possible. For example "Bowser Castle 2" IS technically called "Koopa Castle 2" in Japan. "Toad Turnpike" IS technically called "Kinopio Highway", not "Toad Highway". That was my logic is making those changes.

Sorry for inconveniencing you. I was only trying to help and simply didn't know about this unspoken rule. I don't think you needed to get as mad as you did over my edits, as pointed out by the above post by Mario_jc. I also wouldn't say that "we all know" what Mario characters Japanese names are. But anyways, from now on I'll keep the localized name for characters when adding different language names (that aren't the characters main page obviously). Thanks for fixing all of those mistakes for me though. I appreciate that. It won't happen again.Weegeechan (talk) 18:48, 28 August 2018 (EDT)

It's OK, don't worry. Everyone makes mistakes. And don't forget that other characters also have different names in languages other than English and Japanese/Korean/Chinese; Dry Bones for example is called "Huesitos" in Spanish-speaking regions, and "Knochentrocken" in German-speaking regions (don't forget that Austria and Switzerland also speak German too, and that this is also Austria's sole language!), so if one were to translate Bone-Dry Dunes' Spanish and German names (see the "Names in other languages" section of this track), then it would be called "Huesitos Dunes" and "Knochentrocken Dunes" respectively, regardless if people use these kinds of names or not. Same case with Shy Guy, Rosalina, and all other characters that have different names in different languages. Gold Luigi (talk) 03:01, 29 August 2018 (EDT)
Oh, and don't forget than in case a certain character has different names between the American and European versions in English (like Koopa Kid), then use the American name, but you should also note that they have a different European name.

Wario Stadium[edit]

I'd like to know more about this removal, as you've removed it twice now, the first time without a reason. Just because it hasn't appeared as a Retro Course doesn't mean it doesn't have other names elsewhere. Mario Kart 64 was released in other regions. Explain? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 09:32, 3 September 2018 (EDT)

Well, as far as I know, MK64 only supports Japanese, English, and Simplified Chinese (I totally forgot about Simplified Chinese lol). I haven't seen other languages for the game, and if it does support other languages, then I don't know how I can change the in-game language. I have it only on VC, and played it exclusively in English, plus changing the system language doesn't change the game's language, so I don't know if it has other languages. Gold Luigi (talk) 11:40, 3 September 2018 (EDT)
Just because you can't access other languages doesn't mean they don't exist. I don't think changing the system language will effect an English-released game on VC. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:42, 3 September 2018 (EDT)
To be honest, besides the languages mentioned before, I think that the other language options this game offers are French, German, Spanish, and Italian (or maybe only the 2 former, as in SM64). But I'm still not sure. If you know how you can change the in-game language of MK64, tell me! Don't keep it like a secret! I tried searching on YouTube, but no luck! Gold Luigi (talk) 14:16, 3 September 2018 (EDT)
I don't know, but we have people from around the world here. Perhaps you could try asking around on the forums! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:34, 3 September 2018 (EDT)

Removing information[edit]

You seem to constantly be removing valid information without explanation. Please do explain beforehand. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 06:11, October 24, 2019 (EDT)


Per my summary here. A quick look at the user's edits would tell you they've been making legitimate edits (most of which are on the same game) since that last warning, so they'd have no reason to vandalise a page and so there's no reason you should be holding an old offense against them and immediately judging the edit as vandalism based on that. If you're concerned about the validity of something, aside from verifying it first-hand, the best thing to do would be to ask the user first. This is the sort of matter that if repeated can earn you a warning, so please be more careful. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 05:38, March 6, 2020 (EST)

re:Moving pages without leaving a redirect[edit]

It's a small check below the reason field (Leave "Leave a redirect behind" unchecked). May not be available to accounts without deletion powers idk. --Glowsquid (talk) 13:05, January 13, 2021 (EST)

Ah, I see. I don't have this option, it just has the "Watch source page and target page" one to put a check or not. Thank you, anyway. Gold Luigi (talk) 13:16, January 13, 2021 (EST)

File redirects[edit]

File redirects should be marked for deletion with {{delete}} instead of simply removing the redirect (after no pages link to the old name). Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 07:01, March 15, 2021 (EDT)

Image categories[edit]

Hello, Gold Luigi. 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]]
[[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.

Remember to replace {{uncategorized}} with a category link instead of simply removing it. Super Rush images require Category:Mario Golf: Super Rush Images (and if it's a game cover, Category:Nintendo Switch game covers). Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 22:37, May 20, 2021 (EDT)

Please review this reminder. {{uncategorized}} shouldn't just be removed, it should be replaced with a category link. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 06:38, February 15, 2022 (EST)


This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior (Removing large swath of contents without prior discussion and falsely filling edits as minor in doing so) on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If this warning was not issued by an administrator or patroller and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

So I saw that yesterday, you went around and removed "Controversies" sections on pages that featured, only giving the rather vague and uncompelling reason of "This doesn't belong here". As far as I can tell, this was not discussed anywhere, certainly not on the site's message board or discord server, and you did not start any talk discussion putting forth the idea before doing so. While our help page encourage users to "be bold", that's up to a point-if you're going to scrub substantial content that's been there for year, it's basic courtesy to talk about it first.

The rationale provided is also blatant nonsense. If a page about a given game is going to feature sections about its real-world reception and sales, it makes sense to extend that to reactions people had to the game or character beyond "Did people like this game or not". Indeed most people would consider it quite unencyclopedic to not do so.

Finally, another factor that's making me jump straight to a formal warning instead of an informal reminder is that you filled all of those removals as minor edits. Obviously, removing well over 1.000 bytes of content on any page is not a "minor" modification and it seems to me you did so in the hope people would overlook it. In the future, try to exerce better judgement when marking edits, and invite discussion before going around and removing substantial content from multiple pages. --Glowsquid (talk) 21:05, July 15, 2021 (EDT)

  • I thought that all these contriversies should be discussed only on the Contriversies page instead of the page of each game they were present, that's why I removed them. As for the minor edit notification, I thought they were a small removal, even though the wiki said it was a large portion. Gold Luigi (talk) 05:57, July 16, 2021 (EDT)

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

I'll discuss it here. The classic courses were actually previously discussed on Talk:Mario Kart Tour (it's the latest section). That's why they are linked here, so I think they should stay. I'm terrible at describing things on talk pages without sounding weird or being too long, and that discussion basically covers everything, so if you don't understand that discussion, please ask me. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 08:44, February 15, 2022 (EST)

  • Ooooohhhhh. I never really check the Mario Kart Tour talk page. Thanks for telling me about it, I wouldn't otherwise notice it myself. Gold Luigi (talk) 08:54, February 15, 2022 (EST)
So, do you think we should add them back? I'll follow your opinion. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 08:56, February 15, 2022 (EST)
(Oof, I didn't know you would reply to me this early.) Personally... I think they should be kept out. They're not announced for Mario Kart Tour, therefore they shouldn't be listed as "confirmed". Not to mention that they probably took these pictures on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and not Mario Kart Tour. Gold Luigi (talk) 09:08, February 15, 2022 (EST)

RE:I understood a video that you didn't[edit]

I actually noticed Vanilla Lake several minutes after the undo, though I really didn't notice Dino Dino Jungle, so thanks for the video. Though in my opinion, they shouldn't be listed as confirmed yet. There are badges for some MK8 courses and Luigi Raceway in Mario Kart Tour, but they aren't in the game yet (and the MK8 courses will likely never will due to anti-gravity). I'm somewhat okay with adding Dino Dino Jungle, but not Vanilla Lake as we don't know which version they are they going to use. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 05:46, February 21, 2022 (EST)

Mario Kart (series) page edit[edit]

Did you at least try to take a look at the "Triforce" page before making your edit? Triforce is an arcade system made with the collaboration of three video game manufacturers: Nintendo, Sega and Namco respectively, hence the name. Mario Kart Arcade GP and Mario Kart GP 2 were two games created exclusively for this system. It has nothing to do with Zelda, which I assume you thought I was referring to. --Conradd (talk) 22:23, August 15, 2022 (EDT)

  • Yeah, I immediately thought it was referring to the Triforce from The Legend of Zelda series. I would never imagine it would also be the name of an engine. Gold Luigi (talk) 04:01, August 16, 2022 (EDT)

Merry Mountain's Chinese pronunciation[edit]

Hi Gold Luigi. I noticed that you edited the Chinese spelling of Merry Mountain, which is unlike how Chinese Mandarin spells it, at least for me (the previous one, Huānlè Shān is correct spelling in Mandarin, btw). So I wanted to ask, which spelling did you use for this one? Is it Cantonese or something? Thanks. Starry Windy (talk) 19:37, September 14, 2022 (EDT)

The spelling I used was from Google Translate. I pasted both the Traditional and Simplified Chinese names there and it gave me this spelling in both cases. I couldn't tell the difference between the grammatical English transcript and the voice that says the name out loud. If it's wrong, then feel free to change it back to "Huānlè Shān". Gold Luigi (talk) 04:18, September 15, 2022 (EDT)
Yep. I can confirm that Google Translate's text says so, but curiously the speech on the same translation says out "Huānlè Shān", and when I removed the 山 character, the texts says "Huānlè" this time. I guess that's one of the reasons why automatic translations are not perfect? Starry Windy (talk) 05:49, September 15, 2022 (EDT)

DS Cheep Cheep Beach's music[edit]

Hi Gold Luigi! I noticed that you've been spreading the idea that DS Cheep Cheep Beach doesn't have new music across the Mario Kart 8-related articles and doubling down upon edits, which doesn't accurately represent its soundtrack. For example, the instrumentation has been updated to resemble those in live bands (Presumably Live Recorded by the Mario Kart Band, though I can't explicitly prove that haha), a new funk guitar line panned to the right has been added in the C section, and the countermelody created by the string section has been slightly altered. Further, the original makes use of the Mario Kart DS Soundfont, while the remix in 8 has no trace of it. Though it has not been drastically changed, in my eyes it still constitutes an overhaul for those reasons. I'd like to hear your take though before I undo changes in the other articles you edited on the subject, besides the main one, however. Thanks! Four-Twenty-Four Jake (talk) 1:31, September 17, 2023 (EDT)

The other courses that don't have their music changed drastically also add instrumental enhancements to the soundtrack. For example, 3DS Neo Bowser City has an additional electric guitar at around the middle of the music, as does Wii Mushroom Gorge for the most part, albeit much less noticeably due to how drowned down it sounds compared to the rest of the music. As for 3DS DK Jungle and Wii Grumble Volcano, while nearly the same as their original versions, also have their own enhancements in order to make them sound more "orchestreated". Sure, DS Cheep Cheep Beach's music might be the most orchestrated of the others, but in the end, I find it essentially an enhanced version of the original DS music that was done in order to fit in with the rest of Mario Kart 8's orchestrated soundtrack, just like the other few courses I mentioned. Gold Luigi (talk) 05:04, September 17, 2023 (EDT)
Oh, interesting. I didn't realize that orchestrations and slight changes in notation did not count as overhauled music for the Mario Kart 8 soundtrack on this wiki. Though, if that's the case, it would necessitate adding GCN Sherbet Land (which features no significant changes in instrumentation), 3DS Music Park (which is exactly the same except for the replacement of MIDI guitar and trumpet with live ones), Wii Wario's Gold Mine (which is an exact transcription of the Outside Variant of Wii's for live instruments, save for a few minor changes), Wii Coconut Mall (which is an exact transcription of Wii's for live instruments), and SNES Mario Circuit 3 (which only features a new drum line, with all other parts covered by original instruments from the SNES). Given the examples I have given of other courses that fit your description, where should the line of "overhauled music" be drawn? Should we add these courses to the list in each of the articles? Four-Twenty-Four Jake (talk) 14:58, September 17, 2023 (EDT)
You beat me here. I checked the samples of the soundtracks for each of these courses and they all sound considerably overhauled versions of their original music (though SNES Mario Circuit 3's musical overhaul is kinda ruined with the included SNES sample, not gonna lie). I thought DS Cheep Cheep Beach's music sounded nearly identical to the original version, but I guess all those sound effects and voice clips during gameplay sessions really drowned down the music for me. Add the fact that I never listened the course's music alone in the past as well as that I barely use Mario Kart TV (where it has the option to remove the sound effects and voices but keep the music only), and I eventually find out what I really missed from the course's new and improved music all those years. Without any more doubt, you can freely remove DS Cheep Cheep Beach from the list of courses with slightly overhauled music, without adding any of the other courses you mentioned. Gold Luigi (talk) 15:47, September 17, 2023 (EDT)
