  1. I still had a point.
  2. People say, "focus on the good parts of life and you'll be happy". However, that glaring warning is really crawling onto me.
  3. My first completely normal string of conversations

Re:Room 1-5+[edit]

The article looks fine to me, it's similar to how I wrote the Mario vs. Donkey Kong levels. Level articles are a strange case on the wiki, they're the exception to the "no strategy" rule. Though you could also just point out the objective and call it good, but that's boring :P I think how it is now is good, and you've been doing a great job with these :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:03, 8 February 2019 (EST)

You're welcome, and I'm sure they would! Though most people who visit this site aren't usually expecting walkthroughs, they're good to have for those that are. I prefer text guides/player's guides to video walkthroughs myself. Easier to just pick up where you left off and you can progress at your own pace. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:35, 8 February 2019 (EST)
Yeah, when I write level pages, I keep things to the intended path (or try to, anyway). Multiple paths and strategies is something I think best works on Strategy Wiki. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:39, 8 February 2019 (EST)

Joke edits (possibly outside April Fools' Day) are still, by definition, vandalism. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:04, 22 February 2019 (EST)

Well, you took too long. And that's still not really acceptable, even as a joke. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:16, 22 February 2019 (EST)
One last thing: I actually did wait to see if you'd revert it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:27, 22 February 2019 (EST)
It was a simple joke at Bye Guy's own expense that was meant to be quickly reverted and didn't actually do any major damage to the article (such as blanking or inappropriateness). I'm not regarding this as vandalism, but that said, joke edits should stay off of the mainspace articles. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:34, 22 February 2019 (EST)
Alright, understood. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 19:38, 22 February 2019 (EST)
Look, I'm not trying to throw you under the bus or anything here, you seem to be interpreting my tone as being much harsher than it is intended to be communicated as. I personally don't see it as vandalism, but from a most literal perspective, it technically is, and want to caution you against that sort of thing lest you go down a slippery slope. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:04, 22 February 2019 (EST)
It's alright now, I understand. My apologies for acting up. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 20:16, 22 February 2019 (EST)

Re: Tipping Stars[edit]

I can't extract the Tipping Stars backgrounds as they have multiple layers. But the game itself does have some small prerenders of the backgrounds, so here are those in PNG format. --Hiccup (talk) 09:24, 26 February 2019 (EST)

Special:Diff/2640045 No, they don't. I played the whole game (and watched videos for bonus leels), and can confirm you that they don't. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:53, April 14, 2019 (EDT)

Personal images[edit]

Two files (File:Untitled-2.png and File:SuperRadioPic.png) are marked as your personal images, but you don't appear to be using them. Checking to see if you plan to use them or want to use them again. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:29, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

You should add the second image to your userpage then, to prevent it from showing up as unused. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:43, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Okay, that's corrected. But the image still has to be used. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:01, April 17, 2019 (EDT)


"The player" refers to how the player is playing as the characters, and it is not as fluffy as saying "the Kongs" (Saying "the Kongs" is still not that fluffy, but it is like saying something like "Mario starts on a small platform" instead of saying "the player starts on a small platform" when not on a character page where stating the character's name is nessecary) As for the last sentence, it has to be said as plainly as possible with the least amount of guide-like writing as possible. You do not even have to run to the Slot Machine Barrel anyways. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:32, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

Fair, but you have not answered about the last sentence on the page (The part about running). Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:47, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
You could say "go to" instead. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:58, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
Look at the end of this video. The uploader runs, rolls, uses Dixie Kong's Helicopter Spin, jumps, and walks slowly. The current wording makes it seem like running is the only way to the goal. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 20:07, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

Clowns "and Jesters"[edit]

I would consider "Jesters" to be within the nebulous definition of "clown," much like harlequins and mimes. Therefore, I believe it should just be moved to "Category: Clowns." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:10, May 11, 2019 (EDT)

Your gripe about level articles on the wiki[edit]

I'm trying to figure out the message in your gripe about level articles on the wiki. Is it griping about about level articles in general, or just their quality here on the wiki? (If it's their quality on the wiki, then I agree.) Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 11:09, May 18, 2019 (EDT)

Mario-related media proposal[edit]

Hi, I was just wondering if you'd like a hand implementing your proposal? There's quite a lot to go through, so I'd be happy to help, I just wanted to check first so that I don't edit-snipe you. :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 07:37, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

I could start going through the Super Smash Bros. characters if you'd like? BBQ Turtle (talk) 07:42, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

Re:DK roll attack in Mario and Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games[edit]

Yeah, that's his Special Dash, it's a move which every character has in certain events which gives them a large but brief speed boost, but each character has a unique animation which is usually related to them (For example, Daisy's has flowers, Peach's has hearts, Bowser an Bowser Jr. spin in their shells), so it probably is a reference to the Barrel Roll. I don't believe there's an article for the Special Dash yet, but I think you should put something on the Barrel Roll page. BBQ Turtle (talk) 13:08, May 19, 2019 (EDT)

Adobe flash games[edit]

Bye guy, I found more information regarding Nintendo's flash games. 2 games in particular are both allegedly based on the original Mario party and are called wario's whack attack and Mario's memory madness. I would suggest looking at all of the YouTube videos about Nintendo's flash games including the ones posted by engadget and skelux. The latter is archiving all the games. All the Mario ones could serve as useful information for updates to this list of games. Lord Falafel (talk) 22:30, May 28, 2019 (EDT)

Looking at the website skelux is posting them all on could be helpful, too. Lord Falafel (talk) 22:37, May 28, 2019 (EDT)

Marking redirects[edit]

Hello, please put the deletion template at the bottom of redirects, as putting it at the top breaks the redirect. Thanks! TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 21:26, May 29, 2019 (EDT)

Does it matter if the redirect is going to be deleted anyway?... -- KOOPA CON CARNE 21:28, May 29, 2019 (EDT)
Good point, but it would be generally better if the redirect is left in working order. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 21:29, May 29, 2019 (EDT)
I honestly prefer the redirect being broken, considering links to it should be fixed anyway and makes it easier for admins to get to it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:32, May 29, 2019 (EDT)

Browser or flash games[edit]

The Adobe flash article on the list of games organized by system has quite a few browser and flash games, but I'm not certain if I have them all. Especially all the ones we cover on the wiki. If there are any missing from the list, please tell me all of them. Lord Falafel (talk) 16:11, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for fixing some grammar on the Klaptrap page. I was too tired to revise my writing as a whole Results May Vary (talk) 18:42, June 14, 2019 (EDT)

Does it also applies on templates? Such as Template:Construction. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:50, July 3, 2019 (EDT)

Extra Life Balloon[edit]

Okay, I'm not sure what should be done about this page. The more recent games call it a "Red Balloon", but in the original trilogy there are also green and blue variants that grant more lives, so should those be split out...? Or should I make a proposal about it? Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 05:22, July 12, 2019 (EDT)

Re: Table Tennis Plus[edit]

Thanks for catching those! I set the articles up in a certain way before I actually start playing the game and adding the bulk of the content, so that'll be what happened... and I was writing them pretty late at night. Thank you! :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 04:08, September 21, 2019 (EDT)

"We are all aging"[edit]

True, but "aging" as an adjective typically means "getting on in age," as in "a very high age." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:51, November 4, 2019 (EST)

Well, I'll be aging before I get to know all these subtleties. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 17:54, November 4, 2019 (EST)

"Mario's old friend"[edit]

I remember the Melee trophy called him "an old acquaintance," at least. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:19, November 27, 2019 (EST)

Looking at the Profiles page, through ctrl+f'ing I see no less than six instances of "friend" used in this manner, going way back to the Nintendo character guide. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:52, November 27, 2019 (EST)

MKT screenshots[edit]

What device do you use for Mario Kart Tour? I'm curious how yours is able to hide the status bar at the top of the screen like a lot of other apps do. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 05:03, November 29, 2019 (EST)

Interesting. I might check it out, thanks (I have screenshots of the missing tour splash screens but they have the status bar; will upload them soon). Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 04:30, November 30, 2019 (EST)

Re: Subject[edit]

Um, sorry, what? I feel like I'm missing something with what you've just said there, any chance you could try reexplaining it? BBQ Turtle (talk) 15:59, December 3, 2019 (EST)

OK, sorry, I haven't heard about that before. It is taken from in-game, but from what I've seen the italicisation of that is all over the place, I honestly didn't know. BBQ Turtle (talk) 16:17, December 3, 2019 (EST)

Edit sniping[edit]

I know I've been really slow with the Play Nintendo articles, but if you're going to continue something I already have been working on in my sandbox, you should let me know first. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 19:14, December 9, 2019 (EST)

@OMF He probably didn't know... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:16, December 9, 2019 (EST)
@Bye Guy That's okay, I just didn't know if you knew or not. If you do, just let me know if you're continuing a project I spent too long on (I actually recommend doing this on articles I haven't started on). PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 19:28, December 9, 2019 (EST)
Sure, go ahead. So far, I only have progress on Nintendo Kids Club and Mushroom Kingdom Create-A-Card, so any Play Nintendo-related articles other than those two should be available for you to work on. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 20:59, December 11, 2019 (EST)

The ban was not drastic. It was found out, with incriminating logs, that he was recently part of a neo-nazi affiliated community on Discord, where he posted some questionable stuff. This is in addition to him, on the MarioWiki Discord, publicly posting about how he wanted 3 billion people to die to solve the world's problems, and how he wanted the coronavirus to spread and kill people. Him receiving a community-wide ban was agreed by the admins of the general community. It doesn't matter that these problems weren't brought to the wiki: the community shouldn't accept or have people like this at all. The MarioWiki community is supposed to be a safe and fun place.

Nintendo Friends Object Hunt SM3DW image[edit]

Could File:Grand Group Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.jpg be used in place of File:Nintendo Friends Object Hunt SM3DW board.jpg for Nintendo Friends Object Hunt? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:35, March 22, 2020 (EDT)

Never mind, there's a white boarder around the Friends Object image that I didn't catch at first. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:43, March 22, 2020 (EDT)

As long as the quiz has something Mario-related in it, how you are covering them is fine to me. If there's nothing Mario-related in the quiz, then yeah, I'd say they don't really belong. If you want to get more opinions, you should try Play Nintendo's talk page or elsewhere. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:02, March 23, 2020 (EDT)

Hello! Do you know if the leaf platforms in Horn Top Hop in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze have ever been given an official name? I am wondering due to the question that was asked here on my talk page. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 20:02, June 18, 2020 (EDT)


The files are ripped from the games themselves, with the original paths added for preservation's sake since it isn't always immediately obvious which sprite the stamp is referring to, not from any website. EDIT: Well, they are on the Spriters Resource but I ripped ones I uploaded from the games. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:59, July 11, 2020 (EDT)

Dear Koopa con Carne,

Your current signature is in violation of one or more of the rules listed on MarioWiki:Signatures (signature is too long). Please change your signature and keep the regulations and requirements in mind when creating future designs. If you have not made the appropriate changes within one week of receiving this notice, your signature will be changed for you.

Your signature needs to fit in the box above. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:13, September 21, 2020 (EDT)

Re: Images[edit]

Yeah... Kind of a shame really. With work & Mario Wiki editors joining, WiKirby has improved and is essentially Mario Wiki's sibling at this point. That was perhaps the most notable change of a NIWA wiki in trying to get the Mario Wiki standard across. Do you have Discord? If we are to discuss, we should probably do it off the wiki. Reason I know this is because when me and some other Mario Wiki editors discussed Triforce Wiki (independent ZeldaWiki alternative), and I think the staff here, namely Alex95, wanted the discussion to take place elsewhere. Results May Vary (talk) 17:15, October 5, 2020 (EDT)

Gotcha, I also have been concerned of showing my Discord ID publicly because you never know which people can see it. That's possibly why there's Discord servers. I'll keep up the good work, have a good day! I love your Play Nintendo articles -- have you considered doing them on other wikis as well (Wikirby, pikipedia, etc.?) Results May Vary (talk) 17:57, October 5, 2020 (EDT)
Yes, absolutely! It's official, so it's definitely allowed. There's already a Play Nintendo article there. The wiki has the same rules and structure as Super Mario Wiki. Results May Vary (talk) 18:16, October 5, 2020 (EDT)

RE: MKT tier proposal[edit]

Unfortunately you'd need to request the proposal to be cancelled and start a new one with the added options (you may want to let the current voters know), since six days have passed. Just let me know and I can do that. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:45, October 12, 2020 (EDT)

It would have been good to have the options, but personally I don't think it's worth redoing the proposal for what might not be strong enough terms to describe the tiers, for the reasons you stated. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:09, October 14, 2020 (EDT)
Well, with the recent update, the driver/kart/glider summary screens now explicitly categorise them as "favourite" and "favoured", so I'm thinking they should definitely be considered. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:29, October 14, 2020 (EDT)

RE: Favored phrasing[edit]

I prefer the first phrasing as well, since the second can imply that the courses are the character's usual favored/favorite courses, which isn't always the case. Maybe it can be tweaked to "Courses in this cup are always treated as [character]'s favored or favorite courses." Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:38, October 29, 2020 (EDT)
