  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)

Re:Conjecture[edit]

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)

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)

Snowflakes[edit]

"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)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 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)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 19:47, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
You could say "go to" instead. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 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)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 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)

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 Sprite of the Dark Star from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey 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 Sprite of the Dark Star from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey 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)

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...?

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)

Re:Woah[edit]

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.

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.

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. Marie costume pose in Super Mario Maker 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. Marie costume pose in Super Mario Maker 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. Marie costume pose in Super Mario Maker 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." Marie costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 00:38, October 29, 2020 (EDT)

Yello hello.

I see you have a sandbox. Why not work on the sections you want to improve there, then move them to the actual article when you're finished? This would avoid matters such as edit-warring and allow you to do everything at once. You could also work on it at any time until it's complete.

Just a suggestion or two. I'm doing this myself with Super Princess Peach. Flower in the game Yoshi's Island DS. The Mansion Flower in the game Yoshi's Island DS. 21:09, April 16, 2021 (EDT)

Sure thing! Hey, Wario, see that den under the tree? A furry creature lives in there and he took all the nuggets from the water stream. If you go there, remember to cover yourself in honey and blueberry juice so it won't notice you! -- KOOPA CON CARNE 16:05, April 17, 2021 (EDT)

Donkey Kong Shogakukan guides[edit]

Shogakukan names are 「ホルムコウル」 (Horumu Kouru, Holm Kowl) for helmed and 「シェルムコウル」 (Sherumu Kouru, Shelm Kouru) for shelled on page 14. Prima only refers to the latter as Hootz. I guess, taking a page from how the Tiki Zings are handled, they can be split as "Holm Kowl"(?) and "Hootz (shelled)"? In light of some of this info, I also suggested adding pages for Giga Goro Ball, Robobī, and Pengaccha 1-gō, and splitting up Tiki Tork, Tiki Bomber, Char-Char, and Big Sphen. They seem to have noticeable differences, though unsure about purple Skittler and damaged Stilts. LinkTheLefty (talk) 19:15, May 3, 2021 (EDT)

Generally, we try to organize based closer on origin, but Prima's Returns enemy index isn't as comprehensive as Shogakukan's, and Prima's 3D guide is mostly a copy of the original one with near-minimal changes. In this case, I'm pro-split - see the English and Japanese names in the Tiki Zing articles for an example of how neither localization really has it 100% right. I'm mainly hesitant on Skittler because it's a color variant much Pyrobot and Stilts because the other version of it is represented on the same piece of art in the in-game gallery. The Returns coverage also has an exception for using the British English versions of the Tiki Tak Tribe members, so it's already an odd case. LinkTheLefty (talk) 20:20, May 3, 2021 (EDT)

Re: Spinning at the olympics[edit]

Yes, it does. Functionally, it appears as an attack in Dream Spacewalk, where it is definitely the Galaxy spin attack. As for the information that you removed in that edit you linked, I think it refers to Mario's special boost/dash/attack/whatever else it's called animation in some games. I think it does resemble the spin enough to say it's an aesthetic example, but if you're looking at cleaning up the article then it's probably worth you taking a look yourself. The first example that pops to mind is the Relay in 2016 Wii U, so take a look at this video here and see what you think (It's right at the start): [1]. The animation is probably used elsewhere but I can't think where that would likely be at the moment, so if you fancy looking around some more I'd recommend maybe looking for Mario event gameplay from 2010 onwards to see if you can find it there? That's all that comes to mind though, unless I'm missing something. Hope that helps! :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 18:27, August 17, 2021 (EDT)

Looks really good! I realised afterwards that I had forgotten to mention about Luigi's special thingy as well, but you've already picked that up. I think that covers everything I can think of there at the moment, but I'll be sure to add to it if I come across anything else. :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 05:42, August 18, 2021 (EDT)
Hi again, so I've had some proper time to look over the proposal now, though I'm a little unclear at what each of the options is getting at. I did want to share my thoughts though, as with those videos you've put together I can make some proper comparisons, and there's some things I'd like to point out. A lot of characters' special animations carry over in between games, so I think it's fair to say if Mario's is a reference in 2010, then so is the same animation in 2012, 2016 and 2020. A lot of characters' animations also reference special moves from their home series as well (DK does roll attacks, Bowser and Bowser Jr. spin in their shells, Daisy uses flowers, Yoshi Flutter Jumps, Waluigi swims through the air and I'm sure the Sonic characters have some too but I do not know them well enough to say :P), so I think if it resembles something that they'd logically do, I'd go on the side of it's a reference. I think it would be possible to say that Luigi's is also a reference- if you look at the pose he holds while doing it (note particularly the hand gesture and the way he lifts one of his legs), it very strongly resembles Galaxy's attack. Amy, on the other hand, fully spreads her fingers and keeps both legs straight throughout, as well as having her usual heart effects, so as expected that one looks like a no. So if there's an option to say Mario yes, Luigi yes, Amy no, then please point me to it and I'll be happy to support it, as I think that's my definite position on this now. BBQ Turtle (talk) 16:41, August 26, 2021 (EDT)
No need to apologise, it's not a problem. :) But yeah, I don't think it's an issue at the moment, I reckon the current solution's fine. We'll just have to hope that I don't dredge up any more spins that end up throwing a spanner in the works. :P BBQ Turtle (talk) 14:57, September 8, 2021 (EDT)

Link's Awakening Switch gallery[edit]

Hi I just made a gallery here earlier. The reason I told you is because of the Miscellaneous section, and I was inspired to make it because of your frequent uploads from Nintendo websites and their social media outlets. :) Is this the way that you would add such images to the Super Mario Wiki? Results May Vary (talk) 19:41, August 21, 2021 (EDT)

Actually semi-related but I just added an image uploaded to Nintendo's Facebook in October 2014 here. I was going to ask you if it's implemented properly, as these can be hard to describe, especially on a gallery. Results May Vary (talk) 20:11, August 21, 2021 (EDT)
The annoying thing is that Facebook tends to require login for some of their images. Really frustrating. Another thing I did just now is add another random image from Nintendo of America's Twitter and tried my best to add on both the Mario Kart 7 gallery page and the 3DS Neo Bowser City article. Again, seeing as it can be somewhat difficult to add these, I was wondering how you feel about the way I tried to implement it. Results May Vary (talk) 20:43, August 21, 2021 (EDT)
Appreciated, thank you. When you say context, do you mean the tweet and me explaining the details of what it meant (and even the standard artwork for Mario used as a stock image within the photo)? Results May Vary (talk) 21:00, August 21, 2021 (EDT)
Actually that's how I went about it as well -- briefly explaining the image as a caption & going more in-depth on the aboutfile. I found two more #NintendoHalloween 2014 photos that are Mario-related, and I'll be uploading the two The Legend of Zelda-related ones (ReDead and Skulltula) to Triforce Wiki. Results May Vary (talk) 21:12, August 21, 2021 (EDT)
I'm very happy to hear that you like what I'm doing. I wasn't fully confident at first, but I'm super glad to know that I'm doing this right. :) Okay, the two The Legend of Zelda images in question have been added here and here. I added a "Facebook images" category to both images as well. Perhaps that category can be created for Mario Wiki as well? There are already three applicable ones (the Nintendo Halloween 2014 pictures of Boo, Dry Bones, and Phanto, respectively.) Furthermore, images specifically created by Nintendo and related parties for social media, let's say, if it were added to both Facebook and Twitter could fall under their respective image categories as well. Results May Vary (talk) 21:37, August 21, 2021 (EDT)

Yellow Egg[edit]

Alright so I found a #NintendoTrivia question image on a Yellow Egg from Yoshi's New Island. I was wondering if it works to mention and cite the alternate formatting (which is yellow egg) into the Yellow Egg article itself. Results May Vary (talk) 09:36, August 22, 2021 (EDT)

Sweet, I just created Category:Facebook Images, and it already has six images in it! Results May Vary (talk) 12:31, August 22, 2021 (EDT)
Awesome, thank you for doing that! I added a St. Patrick's Day 2013 image to Yoshi's gallery just now. It's under miscellaneous because I couldn't fit it into the artwork & scans sub-page. Does this work? Results May Vary (talk) 14:04, August 22, 2021 (EDT)
Yeah, although I'd prob stretch out the width of the gallery or else it would be a short column of text. Feel free to relocate it -- I actually also thought it fit more there, but a lot of the Misc captions were already short, so I was unsure. Results May Vary (talk) 15:32, August 22, 2021 (EDT)
Just now I added something completely unique to Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze's gallery pages: a "knockout offer" for both games from Nintendo of Canada on February 26 to March 3, 2015. I was given permission to add the two, and I've provided notes on them as usual. Results May Vary (talk) 22:07, August 22, 2021 (EDT)

Nintendo Kids Club[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I've begun work on a Nintendo Kids Club article on Triforce Wiki. One particular section I wanted to highlight is the Quizzes, as there are no Mario-related quizzes on the website, so I was wondering if the section looks good to you. Update: I'm busy working on the Link's adventure quiz article as well. Results May Vary (talk) 07:32, August 23, 2021 (EDT)

Yeah that's the thing... I'm unsure about changing the template aesthetic for Play Nintendo or creating a new one altogether, especially if it's just for one article. Embarrassingly enough, I don't know how to define a background image without using the "url" tag after background, so there's also that setback. I haven't forgotten about the right and wrong answer/responses. I was going to expand the article earlier but got caught up in other things. Hopefully today I'll add some more to it. Results May Vary (talk) 07:39, August 24, 2021 (EDT)
Update: I have finished the Link's adventure quiz article! (Although the images next to the questions themselves are still missing) I decided to opt for standard wikitable instead. I decided to put the answers under collapsible "Answers" wikitables just in case readers want to do the quiz themselves (even if the answers are obvious). Perhaps the Play Nintendo template here can be adjusted for something similar, where you click a collapsible section to see the right and wrong answers and their corresponding comments, respectively? Results May Vary (talk) 12:43, August 24, 2021 (EDT)
Yeah, it's the only quiz of its type, so a template will not be needed. I appreciate that you think it was creative -- is it the collapsible answers to (somewhat) recreate the basic experience of the quiz? Results May Vary (talk) 14:34, August 25, 2021 (EDT)
I'm looking at the Read & Discover section of the Nintendo Kids Club article, and I might think about splitting into sections (seeing as there's corresponding images to the things in the bulleted list), although I'll probably do this first on Triforce Wiki so you can get an idea of what I have in mind. Results May Vary (talk) 12:53, August 26, 2021 (EDT)
Yeah, although I think I'm on settling on using a wikitable for the separated sections. Results May Vary (talk) 15:48, August 26, 2021 (EDT)

Read & Discover Nintendo Kids Club article[edit]

Hi, so I made this Read & Discover article (Nintendo Kids Club) on Triforce Wiki, as I wanted to see if it would work as a standalone page (seeing as the Nintendo Kids Club article here puts all of the info in its own Read & Discover section). Does this format work? Results May Vary (talk) 19:07, September 13, 2021 (EDT)

Yeah perhaps I thought of it along the line of "I could summarize it in one or two sentences on the Nintendo Kids Club article itself." Results May Vary (talk) 08:06, September 16, 2021 (EDT)

Cars And Trains[edit]

Hi, I wanted to ask you something about the course elements in Mario Kart Tour. Do the cars in Berlin Byways 2 and Sydney Sprint T and the train in the Sydney Sprint courses count as course elements? Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 11:06, September 20, 2021 (EDT)

Thanks for your help! Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 20:41, September 20, 2021 (EDT)

I think its because of those hidden cars in Sydney Sprint T. I didn't even know those were there until I saw CPUs suddenly getting a second Jump Boost after the ramp. Wario (Cowboy) from Mario Kart TourWildWario (talk) 21:17, September 20, 2021 (EDT)

I have a small update. I found out about some trucks that appeared in London Loop T, New York Minute 3T and New York Minute 3R/T. The trucks don't give out Jump Boosts but instead contained a ramp on top of them. That should probably be the reason of the wrong function in your mind. Anyways, should these be noted?

Back[edit]

I found this low quality image on Nintendo's Facebook. Thankfully looks like saving image pages to archive.is now works (provided they're public obviously). This is good news Results May Vary (talk) 22:20, October 15, 2021 (EDT)

However, the url still has to be formatted a certain way (i.e. it can't have "a." following after photos/ in the url, such as /photos/a. ). Results May Vary (talk) 08:40, October 16, 2021 (EDT)

Game Builder Garage[edit]

I was thinking to myself earlier, "does Game Builder Garage have its own share of games acknowledged by Nintendo"? Already the aesthetic and themes remind me a lot of the two Mario Maker games. Results May Vary (talk) 19:16, October 19, 2021 (EDT)

It's moreso me imagining a relevant wiki where Game Builder Garage fits within the scope. Results May Vary (talk) 19:35, October 19, 2021 (EDT)
Seeing as Game Builder Garage is one game, it was me wondering if it could work on a general Nintendo wiki have it, but NIWA's NWiki is too inflexible with their format. Results May Vary (talk) 20:18, October 19, 2021 (EDT)

Twitpic[edit]

Okay, so I'm going all the way back to some of Nintendo's earliest tweets. For instance, I showed tweets up to Dec 31, 2010 through advanced search (see this url: https://twitter(dot)com/search?q=(from%3ANintendoAmerica)%20until%3A2010-12-31%20mario&src=typed_query&f=top) specifically for Mario-related stuff. I noticed that Nintendo used to use twitpic(dot)com to store their images. For instance, this Super Mario All-Stars message: https://twitpic(dot)com/3e4szs (more shown in Wayback link: https://web.archive.org/web/20141225154008/http://twitpic(dot)com/37q1bm ), and Twitpic stores the tweet as the page title. It's linked to from this tweet: https://twitter(dot)com/NintendoAmerica/status/12628297682784256 , but I assume it was linked to from an earlier one. I just figured you'd be interested to know about this. :D (P.S. yes, excuse the (dot) in urls -- it's to get around the spam filter. Results May Vary (talk) 11:43, October 24, 2021 (EDT)
