Editing[edit]

Hey I like that you're contributing but you are just constantly editing the same page you should really try to edit other pages too thanks and keep contributing. :) Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 06:13, 20 July 2016 (EDT)

He was editing on one page because he was trying to get the formatting for a link right; there was no need to tell him that. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC

Linking[edit]

Just FYI, to create a link, simply type the name of the page you're linking to inside four square brackets, like so: [[Dry Bones]]
Or click on the chain icon in the tool bar above the textbox. Also, in case you want to check how your edits look before you click "Save page", please use the "Show preview" button. For more information on editing, click the links in the Welcome notice above. Thanks. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC

RE: Character infobox[edit]

When adding a character infobox, you must use the attributes listed here. So that means "real name" wouldn't work, because it doesn't exist, so "full_name" is used instead. Additionally, "first_appearance" needs to be all lowercase (as should every other attribute), and any spaces between attributes should be replaced with underscores (as I just did). Unfortunately, "Date of Birth" is also non-existent, so the only way you can add it is to create an entire new infobox from scratch. Any attributes you don't plan on using can be excluded. Now your code should be written like so:

{{character-infobox
|title=Koopas lost shell
|image=[[File:3DGreenShellMLDT.png]]
|full_name=Nabil Elalam
|first_appearance=20 July 2016 (As Nabz)
4 August 2016 (Koopas lost shell)
}}

Just a tip: You don't need to type in the full URL for images found on MarioWiki; just the image title (as above). Hope this helps! Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC

Duplicate Image[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that the File:Kirby Listening To Music.gif you uploaded already exists as Music.gif. The one you uploaded may be put up for deletion at some point, possibly soon. I suggest using the already uploaded file so we don't have duplicates of the same file on the wiki. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:50, 5 August 2016 (EDT)

Hey[edit]

Thanks for the tip actually, next time I'll inform myself about the files I upload before uploading. Koopas lost shell 20px-GreenShellMK8.png 11:01, 5 August 2016 (EDT)

Cool. You swap out the file name and I'll mark the other one up for deletion. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:06, 5 August 2016 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Hello, ManKoops. 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.

{{aboutfile
|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|3=Artist
|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.

Because File:SHY GUY REVEALED by Foxeaf.gif had an unfilled template. Also it is {{personal-image}}. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:50, 7 August 2016 (EDT)

Thanks for the warning Koopas lost shell 20px-GreenShellMK8.png 15:56, 7 August 2016 (EDT)

Warning.svg
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior 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 and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You did it again to File:3DS MarioPartySR E32016 SCRN 10.jpg. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:29, 17 August 2016 (EDT)

Sorry, that wasn't on purpose, I pressed the button without knowing it!Koopas lost shell 20px-GreenShellMK8.png 09:42, 18 August 2016 (EDT) But I guess the warning will make it stop happening.

OK. One more thing (no warning for this). Categorize the images you upload, if possible. Game images for sure have an image category. Category:Mario Party: Star Rush Images for File:MpsrA.png for example. Insert [[Category:Mario Party: Star Rush Images]]. To find the category with the exact name, use the search text box and type in Category: and then the name of the game. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:45, 21 August 2016 (EDT)

Swearing[edit]

I haven't been on the wiki too long, but I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed to have the d-word on your userpage. This is supposed to be a family-friendly wiki, so could you please change it? --Sigma (talk) 14:40, 8 August 2016 (EDT)

Actually there is no rule against swearing as long as it's not directed at someone but you shouldn't do it too often. Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 19:34, 23 August 2016 (EDT)

Italics[edit]

Hey there. When editing articles, remember that game titles should be in italics. You can do this by placing two apostrophes before and after a game title.

For example, ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''

Thanks, 'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 11:25, 12 August 2016 (EDT)

Please recall what YoshiKong has said here. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:32, 23 August 2016 (EDT)

Grammar[edit]

Hi, just a reminder to please always remember to capitalise proper nouns next time (e.g. "Boos" and "SecuriMeows", not "boos" and "securimeows"). Also, keep in mind that the pronoun is spelled "which", not "witch". Thanks. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 05:30, 15 August 2016 (EDT)

Oh, sorry, I'm lebanese, so I'm not an expert at grammar but anyway, I guess I'll make use of what you just said. Thanks then. Koopas lost shell 20px-GreenShellMK8.png 05:59, 15 August 2016 (EDT)

You're welcome. Also, "Wiggler" is a proper noun as well. Any words that are names, like "Mario" or "Luigi", are proper nouns, and should always have their first letter in capitals. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:38, 15 August 2016 (EDT)

Google Images[edit]

File:PMMamarChapterClear.jpeg - Google Images is a rather terrible source to get screenshots (or any image for that matter) to satisfy articles needing a certain image. Rarely is it ever useful. Also Google Images isn't the source you should be crediting because that source can changes its search results. The best way to obtain screenshots is to follow my WIP guide. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:15, 25 August 2016 (EDT)

Friendship or fiendship, whichever you prefer[edit]

Hey Koops, wanna be friends? Why, you ask? Because forums. Not to mention Switch.

Sure, just wait until I draw my OC and change the userbox. By the way, I really need to change that signature too.Koopas lost shell GreenShellMK8.png 13:17, 24 July 2017 (EDT)
