OGG Files

I noticed two things about OGG files:

  • Seldom use here
  • Potential copyright infringement, even moreso than image uploads, such as screenshots, sprite rips, etc.

Should the below be deleted to force them out of Special:UnusedFiles or can they be used somewhere? Normally, if it were an unused image, I would find a way to repurpose it, find the image that replaced it so that way {{delete}} can be used, or tag as {{delete-request}} to generate discussion on iffy deletion. Since these are audio and video files going unused, I am very hesitant these should be used in MarioWiki articles. Copyright is a tricky subject. The safest move here is to just delete these, unless there is a plan with these files beyond my knowledge. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:54, 25 May 2016 (EDT)

I don't know much about where they are being linked so use {{not-unused}} on the ones you know for sure are URL-linked. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:52, 25 May 2016 (EDT)
I am just going to revive this discussion because I think either a recent software update to MarioWiki occurred that corrected a bug or a template update fixed this issue with most truly used files. The list has been updated. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:19, 13 July 2016 (EDT)

Questionable IP

Could you check this IP, I'm pretty sure its Mario's Number 1 Fan (talk) ban evading. (The IP did the same edits the said user did last year and excessively removed valid information). The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 22:02, 25 May 2016 (EDT)

Also if it's not too much of a hassle, can you please edit MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive/Header to add the new archive? Thanks--

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Hi. Can I ask why you re-added the Chinese name I removed? That name was unofficial and Glowsquid said that unofficial names should not merit an entry in the foreign language box. A gossip-loving Toad (Talk) 20:42, 20 June 2016 (EDT)

Image ripping

I managed to find a website that shows pictures of all barrel types in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast's instruction manual here as well as a Zinger and a Necky, but I don't know how to rip them as they are saved as pdf's. I tried to edit them in Paint, but I couldn't do it. Do I need PhotoShop or some other hardware to rip them or do you think you can do it? Area51Guard.png A51 Trooper 06:07, 2 July 2016 (EDT)

About my Gloam Valley redirect

Hello I made the redirect to the Flip-Flop Folk page but I did it because the three other town people have redirects. Also I saw it was deleted for having an unofficial name.

about the Vivian screenshots

Beldam calls Vivian otoko ("a man") in the Japanese version of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
The drawback is that dialogue boxes are closed too quickly in a TAS, and you have to get suboptimal screenshots like this sometimes.

Hi. I saw that you are requesting a better version of File:PMTTYD Beldam NA Insult.png on Wildgoose's talk page. If it is not possible/feasible to take one from screenshot, it is possible to obtain one from the official encodes (that is, movie files generated by emulators) on They have a TAS for the English version of PMTTYD [1] and one for Japanese [2], so a lot of emulator-quality screenshots can be taken from these encodes, if you don't want to play the game again.

User Page

Delete Lana Reid (talk)'s user page? Seems spam-like as well. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 02:17, 15 July 2016 (EDT)


I've been meaning to write up a decently long reply and adjust my vote accordingly, but a lot of IRL stuff popped up recently and it distracted me from saying something. Right now is a really awkward time, so it'll take me a little longer to get back to them. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 01:39, 26 July 2016 (EDT)

updating picture

Hi. I uploaded a PNG version of File:PM2 Prologue.jpg as File:PMTTYD prologue screenshot.png. However, the former picture is still used on a user talk page for useful purpose. Can it still be tagged with {{delete}} or does the user need to be notified first? Thanks. -- A gossip-loving Toad (Talk) 11:45, 31 July 2016 (EDT)

DKBB help

Hi, can you upload images of the two Launcher Barrel variants? One of them is yellow, and the other is the one on the Mt. Dynamite racetrack with the DK logo on it that appears at the top of the downhill path near the finish line. Also, does the giant squid on Salty Sea count as an enemy?

Image sourcing

First of all, props for those Wario World screenshots; since I'm not capable of uploading anything but Youtube screenshots for Gamecube games, your high quality versions are definitely appreciated. However, you keep forgetting to fix the source. Obviously your screenshots are not from Youtube videos, so that leaving that as the source is odd. Dark BonesSig.png 20:42, 19 August 2016 (EDT)

Glitz Pit fighter pages

Hi. I saw you just edited The Fuzz now. The stats are a bit outdated and are better presented with {{pm2enemybox}}es, but I'm not sure if it's ok to copy the stats on the individual enemy pages onto the fighter team pages; that could run afoul of SMW:ONCE. Thanks. A gossip-loving Toad (Talk) 22:07, 19 August 2016 (EDT)

Thanks for replacing that image, and so quickly too. We'll definitely give you a special thank you in the next edition.

"Box arts"


  1. It's just "boxart". Even in the plural.
  2. Per MarioWiki:Galleries, logos should be split out to a separate section at the start if you're messing around with those.

LMDM Team-Up

Remember how you asked me to get ScareScraper boss ghosts uploaded (only had a few but couldn't supply the rest)? One question, your uploads during that period, were they your own derived screenshots from your 3DS? If so, that's good news. That means you can help me with something. I noticed Gallery:Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon#Gameplay is hideously organized. I think it needs a revamp. I didn't realize until several edits in. What do you think? Also, if you know of anyone else that owns a copy of this game, it will be of great help getting that section better organized. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:22, 29 August 2016 (EDT)

Oh, I thought you did own a 3DS because of your submissions to complete those articles. Did you get those images from Miiverse then? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:59, 29 August 2016 (EDT)

Full interiors view of Excitement Central, Spooktastic World and Thrillsville

Hi. This is BeautifulBowletta. I have upload the full picture inside view of Sparkle Land from Wario World. Do you have any full interior pictures view of Excitement Central, Spooktastic World and Thrillsville? - BeautifulBowletta (talk) 03:38, 30 August 2016 (EDT)


My position hasn't changed much: the article still has tense issues and the images still have aliasing issues. I'm not a fan of the table colours, either: they don't do a particularly good job of masking the aliasing, and the darker colour of the headers make it hard to read the black text. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 19:27, 1 September 2016 (EDT)

Blue Bowser art

Hello Lindsay. I was wondering if you could tell me where this image came from:

Artwork of Bowser, as he was depicted in Super Mario Bros..

I understand if you don't remember: you uploaded it a long time ago! Thanks.

Should we just block SmithJrBlaquaLuigi (talk)? I don't think this user is interested in contributing but rather either spamming or editing his user page. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 00:28, 2 October 2016 (EDT)


This is SmithJrBlaquaLuigi, Sorry about that. I just don't know why the article has delete-request. Also I'm a noob using somewhat article.

I understood for the warning.


Hi I saw your interview with Kenny James (my fav. voice actor) one question, how do I do an interview like that. I want to do it with Caety Sagoian because her article has a lot less information than Kenny James's before it was expanded so could you please tell me thanks. :) The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 03:15, 6 October 2016 (EDT)

I'm sorry

For that spampost *

Unofficial transparent images

Would it be alright if I give an image(s) a transparent background myself or no? I'm not sure what the standing is on unofficial transparency. Thinking about uploading some images from Super Mario 3D World, but they would have a cropped background to them, unless I get rid of it myself. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:33, 15 October 2016 (EDT)

Something like this image, but for every playable character. I just simply want to remove the background, but if it doesn't turn out as well as I would like, I decide against uploading it. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:38, 15 October 2016 (EDT)
...Alright. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:41, 15 October 2016 (EDT)

How about at least a cropped image of the Boomerang Suits? Only Mario has an artwork and Rosalina's is kinda... far off. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:51, 15 October 2016 (EDT)

Prima source?

Hi Lindsay. I was just wondering if you confirm for me whether or not this image came from the Prima game guide? If so, I would like to refer to the file for an image guideline I was drafting.

Thanks so much.

Prism Island Map

Since the sprites for the world map are online in full hd quality, if I were to recreate the map by putting the pieces back together, would that be acceptable for upload here? I know we just found a good map on the Japanese site, but this would be the highest quality.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 23:17, 28 October 2016 (EDT)


Hi Lindsay, next week could I please have a go at editing the DidYouKnow Template? I know you always do it and I just wanted to ask because I didn't want to be mean because I know you like editing it. :) The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 04:52, 30 October 2016 (EDT)

About the block you gave me

It seems like as if you blocked me 2 weeks ago, it ended at the time I'm writing this, so just want you to know, to avoid a block again, I will never EVER post pictures to the wiki, just so you know. --Drybones345 (talk) 08:29, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

Deletion Reason

I have been meaning to ask this for a while now but why don't you link to the replacement file on the file page you delete? Other sysops do this, such as YoshiKong or Ghost Jam. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:00, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

I think it would be courteous to link to them, especially if they are linked on a user page that only sysops and the owner of the page can edit. I wish I could edit the pages only for the purpose of changing to the replacement image because my replacements are most likely near-identical because I try to match as close as possible to the original upload. It's just a pet peeve of mine seeing Special:WantedFiles useless now. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:14, 2 November 2016 (EDT)

Deleted File

A file I uploaded File:Stingby SM3DL.png was deleted by you. May I ask why? I mean it wasn't fan art it was an official artwork found in the Prima guide so then why was it deleted? The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 13:11, 14 November 2016 (EST)

Okay I checked it's not in the guide itself, it's on the back cover however behind a Toad. The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Love Pit.png 13:28, 19 November 2016 (EST)

Deleting Bestiary Leftovers

Luigi's Scuttle ability.
Another good instance of using a GIF.

Due to a recent proposal that passed, bestiaries and infoboxes became more streamlined, resulting in a few GIFs going into Special:UnusedFiles. You deleted the unused ones that MediaWiki detected. That's fine, but there are more that were missed because they are being used on userpages. User:Wildgoosespeeder/DeleteThese - Just go through these and delete the ones that match the PNG static frame. I think this is more efficient compared to tagging each item individually. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:50, 8 December 2016 (EST)

Is it ok to use the gifs for the enemy articles and static images for the bestiary? It's technically possible, but I forgot to do it for Superstar Saga and the gifs seem now deleted :( --A gossip-loving Toad (Talk) 23:13, 8 December 2016 (EST)
I'm not a big fan of having that. Keep it simple and more manageable. Some animations take away from the article, such as Cackletta and Cackletta's laughing sprite from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and that wasn't being used anywhere in main articles or galleries. The animations that were deleted, those were just idle animations. A static idle frame is used for bestiaries. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:59, 9 December 2016 (EST)
That doesn't mean they should've been deleted.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 15:17, 9 December 2016 (EST)
File:Sm64ds luigi scuttle.png was replaced by the GIF I linked to. The GIF demonstrated better Luigi's jump attribute. Those kinds of GIFs shouldn't be deleted. What should be deleted are animations that contribute very little compared to the static PNG, like File:Bowletta.gif for Bowletta. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:59, 9 December 2016 (EST)

Well, it looks like things need to get restored because a proposal was in favor of restoring deletions. User:Wildgoosespeeder/DeleteThese are for easy restorations but check your your delete log to get remaining. Just be careful about restoring things that were duplicates or static frame GIFs because those should remain deleted. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:43, 20 December 2016 (EST)

Alright, I see that MLPiT GIFs are restored but MLSS still hasn't seen restoration. I don't think I linked to all the GIFs for MLSS when I started that page but I started to with MLPiT. I would check your deletions newer than December 1st to be absolutely sure we get the affected GIFs restored. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:47, 21 December 2016 (EST)
OK, few remain. I made it easier for you by editing the page to link to the images still in need of restoration. Then Eldritchdraaks (talk) can resume his project. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 19:23, 22 December 2016 (EST)

Re: Unused file

Helo! Just added that image to a gallery! You don't need to delete the file. Thanks User:Ashley anEoTselkie/sig 10:51, 9 December 2016 (EST)

Actually I have seen that image in Special:UnusedFiles for some time now and was never really sure if it was an officially licensed Nintendo product. Also, I remember seeing other variations for Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi, but not uploaded to the Wiki. That's why I was hesitant to link it. If it can be confirmed to be a licensed Nintendo product along with any of the said characters being confirmed to also have a themed controller (or characters I didn't mention and didn't know about), keep it linked and upload remaining. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:49, 12 December 2016 (EST)

I see that you went on a purge in Special:UnusedFiles. There are some deletions I don't agree with:

  • MarioWiki:Featured articles/A1/Gus


  • MarioWiki:Featured articles/Archive/N1/Assist Trophy

Super Mario Challenge

Thanks for helping me out with uploading the images. I noticed that you made some changes to the pages like moving the challenges near the course layout and removing items. The removing of items has one flaw, the links to the items are now gone. I am thinking about going through to make sure everything is linked, but that won't happened until. Now, I got some questions.

  1. How are you getting the images?
  2. You seem to have uploaded several today. I won't be able to create articles as fast as you are getting the images. Although, it wouldn't take very to upload them, anyways. Are you going to be adding images for all worlds I created? Or are you going to add all the images? What are you planning to do with the images if I don't have the articles created for them?
  3. Which design from this do you think I should have on the wiki? Where should I put Super Mario Challenge? On its own article or on Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS?

Please respond so I know what to do. I like creating these levels. But, I like taking my own time at it. Red Yoshi in a construction hat walking Yoshi the SSM (talk) 16:22, 26 June 2017 (EDT)

YouTube, huh. What channel is it?
Just what I was thinking. I won't put it there until I have put all 100 levels on the page.
I was going to fully check it before I put it there, but due to my speech problems, my writing doesn't always sound like the best at times. I understand grammar and can learn from Writing Guidelines, but this wouldn't fully be enough to stop this from happening.

Mario Party 10 Wario Render

Hello, I notice you had uploaded a hi-res pic or two for Mario Party 10. I was curious to know if you have sources and can by chance find and update this Wario render from Mario Party 10 with the official highest-res piece you can find? It's a new render of the same pose from Mario Party 7. (You can easily tell because the new render has depth to the 'W' on his hat.) It looks like that new render was also used in Mario Tennis Open and probably originally used in Mario Kart Wii. (Although that linked Mario Kart Wii pic is lo-res, in this different Mario Kart Wii pic, you can tell there's depth to the 'W' on his hat leading me to believe those are the new renders. It looks like Mario Party 8 in 2007 was the first game to feature the new rendering style for Wario with that extra detail on his hat. (Boy they really like to reuse renders for the Mario Party and Sports games!) But yeah, I'd really like to see that specific one in featured in Mario Party 10 in hi-res.

Having an issue with a user

Back in December I put together a proposal (seen here) to give the Nintendo Switch buttons more contrast in their colors, opposed to the actual appearance of the buttons, due to being difficult to make out on some screens. I suggested that Woodchuck (talk) would be the one to make this change, as they made the buttons, though I did not speak to them prior to the proposal. After it passed, I made a few attempts speaking to Woodchuck about making the desired changes, to which I received minimal response, only a confirmation that they still have the files and that they would do it. However The changes were never made, they had a temporary ban, and have yet to respond to my messages since they've come back. I'm asking if you can step in and get a response out of Woodchuck. I just need them to do it, or refuse, but I think I've had enough of being ignored on this matter. --EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 17:58, 17 March 2018 (EDT)

I thought that's what I had been doing, As well giving them ample time to respond, so from my perspective it seems very deliberate that they are ignoring me. An attempt was made my someone else to fix the buttons, but the quality of the edit was very lackluster, which confirms that we need to use the original files, or remake them from scratch. --EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 09:23, 19 March 2018 (EDT)

High-quality screenshots

Hi. When a user asked you how you take screenshots from various games, you responded that you actually use YouTube. I therefore assume you took screenshots for the areas in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem from gameplay videos. Thing is, they look so high-quality! I'd say genuine quality. Can you help me out with a screenshot I took from a video? It doesn't have the best quality, having used where you can't change the quality of the video. Or wait... is it just a matter of video quality and I can simply use the print screen key? Or, perhaps, do you have the game yourself? -- -- KOOPA CON CARNE 14:37, 27 March 2018 (EDT)

In that case, Tuff should be deleted as well. As, it too was to fill in a red link, even though it wasn't known as a red link until day of creation. Although, once I get to Websterite and Tuff, I will be able to recreate them.
Another thing, the first place the stub template links to (formula) says that articles created as stubs have a week until something happens to it (expand the article, merge with another, delete the article, or (if all three options are not possible at all) remove stub template). Want to say something about that? Red Yoshi in a construction hat walking Yoshi the SSM (talk) 12:24, 6 April 2018 (EDT)


Hi, not that your recent deletions lacked any merit, but I'm concerned that you rushed to delete two "stubs", even though effort was put into them. Peach's Castle (golf course) I can probably understand, but Websterite actually had as much effort put into it as possible! Remember, stubs are only articles that lack significant information; stub = short, but short ≠ stub. In the future, I recommend you judge whether a short article has effort put into it before deleting it as a stub. Thanks!
