Hey! I've seen you trying to reupload File:KoopaBunTTYD.PNG. It seems to me that you need to clear the cache after you reupload the image by reloading/refreshing or by hitting F5. The problem persists, let me know! Thanks! Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 16:28, 16 January 2016 (EST)

 Thanks, it worked. I'll be careful not to reupload the file so many times next time. Anyways, thanks again! --Green Mario (talk) 22:46, 16 January 2016 (EST)
You're welcome. Don't worry too much, it's a pretty common rookie mistake here, so don't be too worried. Heh, I like your name, it reminds me of my old name, LeftyGreenMario.

I'm having this problem again. I've been trying to reupload a good amount of images, but replacing the file isn't working correctly. I've tried refreshing the page, but it hasn't been doing anything. Can you please help me? --Green Mario (talk) 13:25, 21 January 2017 (EST) (EDIT:) Also, when I revert the image, the reuploaded image suddenly works correctly. But when I try to change it back to the reupload, it goes back to not working correctly.

I know I'm not the person you were talking to, but hitting Ctrl+F5 will reset the cache rather than just refresh the page. Try reverting to the sprite you just uploaded and try that. It usually works. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:34, 21 January 2017 (EST)

Still doesn't work. I'll keep trying, though.. --Green Mario (talk) 15:25, 21 January 2017 (EST)

I decided to give it a go and try it, and it works just fine for me. The sprite now shows, but you may have to press Ctrl+F5 to see the result on your end. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:36, 21 January 2017 (EST)

Image Category Reminder[edit]

Hello, Green Mario. 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.

File:PM1greenyoshi.png was missing Category:Paper Mario Images along with a license tag ({{game-sprite}} in this case). Be sure to select the appropriate license when uploading. There should be a drop-down below the box you type in a description (where {{aboutfile}} is loaded for you). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 00:22, 7 October 2016 (EDT)

Right, I forgot to do that. I'll make sure to do that next time! --Green Mario (talk) 09:31, 7 October 2016 (EDT)

And you are forgetting to do these things again. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 01:13, 8 October 2016 (EDT)

..Sorry, people forget things sometimes. --Green Mario (talk) 01:23, 8 October 2016 (EDT)

I hope that you can turn it into a habit because you are still forgetting (image categorization and licensing, which licensing seems to have been fixed). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:33, 8 October 2016 (EDT)

So, if the image is a Paper Mario image, I have to put it in the Paper Mario images category? --Green Mario (talk)

Generally, you have to place the image category on the file page to the game the image belongs to (usually one, but could be more, like File:SMA Mario Bros.png having five different categories it can belong to). See Category:Images by game for all the known games. Paper Mario images go in Category:Paper Mario Images. Sometimes, there is no category it can belong to, such as general artwork not specific to any game. It's rare. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:04, 8 October 2016 (EDT)

You forgot to do what I asked with File:Rescuevteam.png. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:19, 23 October 2016 (EDT)

I don't even know how, you never bothered to tell me. Also, why is this incredibly important? I'm genuinely curious. Green Mario (talk) (EDIT: oh wait i'm dumb nevermind)

The template {{uncategorized}} was a quick idea Porplemontage (talk) and I came up with to help us catch newly uploaded uncategorized files. The idea behind it is to not have it tag the file being uploaded (default it shows up in Special:Upload to better catch files not being categorized). I see you are now inserting the category. Just remove the template. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:21, 25 October 2016 (EDT)

btw, "Images" is capitalized in the category names. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:05, 6 August 2018 (EDT)

Hey, please recall Alex95's comment above. The "I" in "Images" must be capitalised in the category name. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 18:21, 13 February 2019 (EST)


You do realise that the comment you replied to here was done back in 2009. Please refrain from commenting on comments that are years old, it's not a rule or anything it's just common sense. The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 19:57, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

Oh, sorry. I didn't know, I'll make sure to be more careful next time, though. --Green Mario (talk) 19:59, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

Elder Princess Shroob Sprite[edit]

I definitely do not remember where I found that sprite. Sorry. I used to get a lot of sprites from the Spriter's Resource [1], but I know that particular sprite was not from that website. Now a days, I could probably use Photoshop to rip sprites that I can't find (haven't tried it yet, but it can't be difficult at all). I wouldn't mind assisting you if you need help with something, though my schedule is pretty packed because of school. Fawfulfury65

Well, if possible, I'd like you to rip the sprite of the Shroobified Chain Chomp in this image: The Elder Princess Shroob's Chain Chomp

This image has needed to be reuploaded for a while now, so if you could fix it, that would be wonderful! --Green Mario (talk) 21:59, 16 November 2016 (EST)

Ah, I know I didn't get back to you for quite a while, but it's pretty hard to rip from that image. It would help to have a higher quality image. I'm not sure where to get a better image, though. I don't have a DS emulator on my computer. Emulators and I don't get along, haha. Fawfulfury65

Soul Bubble[edit]

Hi, thanks for uploading the Soul Bubble attacking Mario image btw a quick question. Could you please upload the Love Bubble and Soul Bubble attacking Luigi thanks. :) The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 20:28, 18 November 2016 (EST)

Sure, no problem! --Green Mario (talk) 20:31, 18 November 2016 (EST)

BJADON Comments[edit]

Usually comments are added to a segment while said segment has been posted. Please refrain from posting comments on the BJADON unless the comment is relevant to the discussion. The BJADON is usually meant for posting strange or hilarious mistakes or articles users have made or noticed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:50, 11 December 2016 (EST)

Well, I'll take your advice. But I'd like to know-- how is this hurting anything? --Green Mario (talk) 20:03, 11 December 2016 (EST)

Image Uploads[edit]

A few times, I tagged some of your recent images for deletion because they were a duplicate. You really should look for the sprites first before wasting time on creating a sprite and uploading as a new file to satisfy an article with image(s). I do that. Saves a lot of time. There are four ways to find them:

Hope this helps. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:32, 18 January 2017 (EST)

Replacing images is being wonky, though. I don't have a choice. --Green Mario (talk) 21:38, 19 January 2017 (EST)

That's only true if you are replacing images, not satisfying an article needing an image or more. I prefer the red link method when replacing images with a PNG version. See here. As for getting an image for an article, search first with my list of places to start, then upload if the image doesn't seem to exist. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 19:41, 31 January 2017 (EST)

YouTube as a Source for Images[edit]

Don't use YouTube. Quality varies, but doesn't beat using a real console or emulator, even at YouTube's highest settings (beyond 720p or 1080p doesn't make Wii U images better or any console for that matter), and makes maintenance harder to get good quality images uploaded. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:02, 15 March 2017 (EDT)

But the images I replaced were already low quality in the first place, so it could only be improving them, right? Or is there something I simply don't understand? --Green Mario (talk) 18:36, 15 March 2017 (EDT)

Don't use YouTube. Simple as that. Just submit screenshots like so. Once there is a practical way to clean capture screenshots from the Wii U (or an emulator reaches a level of comparable quality), it makes replacing much easier because by definition, JPEGs are lower quality. See MarioWiki:Image use policy. Technically, using YouTube isn't against MarioWiki policy, but if it were (and I wish it were), I find it on a similar level to creating stub articles, which is against policy. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 19:09, 17 March 2017 (EDT)

Well, I still don't fully understand, but that's alright. I'll take your word for it. Also, sidenote, has there been any issues with me and creating stub articles? I'd just like to know. --Green Mario (talk) 20:32, 17 March 2017 (EDT)

YouTube videos use encoders for the video file, likely MPEG/H.261/H.262/H.263/H.264/H.265 or anything similar. This format is the JPEG of video files, meaning lossy quality. Very old uploads used FLV.
It is possible a few stubs slipped under the radar of sysops or a sysop saw it as a legitimate effort. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:43, 17 March 2017 (EDT)

New version upload[edit]

You can't upload a newer version of a file if they have different file extensions (.jpg, .png, etc.) It would have to be uploaded separately in that case. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 20:13, 14 February 2019 (EST)

Navigation template / categories[edit]

In the future when creating a new article, remember to add a navigation template and category. The respective sections in MarioWiki:Manual of Style explain more. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 00:24, November 10, 2019 (EST)
