Hello! Welcome to my Talk Page!

Status: Active. My current project is to create missing pages for SMB3 levels. My goals are reaching 1000 edits and creating 15 pages.

Talk Page Rules
  1. Follow every rule on the Wiki's rules page.
  2. Don't send illegal content (read the wiki's rules for more details).
  3. No vandalism, insulting, flaming, trolling, spamming, edit other users' comments (unless they're vandalism) or swearing. Please respect.
  4. You can send me a Friend Request, but only if I know you enough and/or you helped me with something. If I accept, then you can use my Friend Userbox on your page, you can find the code on my main page.
  5. If you want to talk on other site, feel free to PM me on the forum.
  6. I will ALWAYS respond you on this talk page, as sending answers to others' talk pages breaks the conversation when archiving it.
  7. I will archive this page when it reaches 50 discussions, regardless of whether they are long or not.
  8. Have fun!

Italics[edit]

Hi. Good job on your recent edits. Just remember that when naming game titles, we always write in italics. In case you didn't know, the formatting is done by simply adding two apostrophes before and after the name (e.g. ''[[New Super Mario Bros.]]''New Super Mario Bros.)

Thanks. Shy Guy pose SMM.png Mario JC 17:46, 27 August 2017 (EDT)

Construction[edit]

Hey, just letting you know that you should not include the construction template on your user page, as including it will list your page under Category:Articles under construction which is meant for mainspace articles. If you wish to use the template, please copy the source coding from {{construction}}. Thanks. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:11, 28 August 2017 (EDT)

Just removed, I didn't know. Sorry. LED42 (talk) 13:16, 28 August 2017 (EDT)

Also, if you want to see how your edit looks without finalizing the page, click "Show preview". This will let you see your change without saving, so you can safe everything in one edit and not flood the recent changes with several edits to one page, like your user page.

Userboxes[edit]

Hola. Just a suggestion, but I think you should remove the thumb parameter in your userbox images. Have a look at one of my userboxes for an example. Not ordering you or anything, but I think it would look a lot better.

Wow. Thank you! It looks a lot better now. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 15:11, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

RE: Names in other languages[edit]

Info here. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:23, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

Thanks. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 22:27, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

Flag Images[edit]

We already have the flag of Spain, File:Flag of Spain.png. File:SpainFlag.png will be deleted. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:35, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

Ok. I've changed the image of the userbox. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 23:42, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

Minor edits[edit]

Hello! Just so you know, instead of putting "minor edit" in your edit summaries when making a minor edit, you should instead click the box that reads "This is a minor edit" underneath where edit summaries go. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 21:35, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

He appears to be using the mobile version, which doesn't have this feature. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:36, 2 September 2017 (EDT)
Oops. I have never used the mobile version before. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 21:38, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

RE:Signatures[edit]

You need to change your current signature. Users are allowed only one signature page. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:26, 11 September 2017 (EDT)

Note Block[edit]

I would like to see a picture of the "golden" note block, as the description of a "pink" note block was incorrect (they were clearly orange in both the original and in the SNES version). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:27, 12 September 2017 (EDT)

Check the imagen I've uploaded. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 09:45, 13 September 2017 (EDT)

Image* File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 09:45, 13 September 2017 (EDT)

Honestly looks about the same to me, with the only difference being the standard "GBA remake has less saturation" thing going on. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:05, 13 September 2017 (EDT)

Proposal[edit]

Just letting you know that your Invincible Category proposal hasn't actually ended, it still has one more day. Also, the votes are not in the favor, so it wouldn't be marked as pass at the moment. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:18, 14 September 2017 (EDT)

I decided to end it, do I need to wait one more day? File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:22, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Okay, I can cancel it for you. Just a reminder, you can't cancel a proposal you've created after three days has passed. After which, you have to contact a staff member. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:26, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Thank you. I'll take care of that the next time. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:28, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Whoop, actually I can't do that. You have a good reason other than just "I want it to end". Best just let it play out. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:26, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Honestly, I have no other reason, so, I'll just wait. Is the same thing if that's done later. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:33, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Another thing, you have helped me a lot, and I am very grateful about that. So, do you want to be friends? Maybe I can help you on something later! File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:40, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Sure, why not :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:45, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Nice! So, here's the userbox!

{{userboxp|border=#FF0000|mainbkgd=#FF5555|codebkgd=#FF0000|codecolor=#000000|code=[[File:StarMK8.png|thumb|50px]]|msg=This user is friend of [[User:LED42|LED42]] ([[User talk:LED42|talk]]).}} File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:47, 14 September 2017 (EDT)

Just remove the thumb thing, I forgot that. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:50, 14 September 2017 (EDT)

Something ended bad... File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:51, 14 September 2017 (EDT)

Added. And fixed this problem, too :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:54, 14 September 2017 (EDT)
Yep. Thank you :) File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:57, 14 September 2017 (EDT)

RE: Personal template[edit]

You're allowed to make a status template, so long as you plan on using it on more than one page. If you only plan on using it on one page (your main page, for example), just design it there.

My status template, User:Alex95/status, is used on my main and talk page. If you want to create one, you would do so at User:LED42/status. More info here. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:46, 17 September 2017 (EDT)

Thanks. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 17:55, 17 September 2017 (EDT)

Friend Request[edit]

Hey, would you like to be friends with me? I just created my own friend userbox. LuigiMaster123Icon.png LuigiMaster123 19:05, 18 September 2017 (EDT)

Wow. I am surprised. Of course! You can take the code from my page. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 19:10, 18 September 2017 (EDT)

Foreign names[edit]

Hey, just so you know, the foreign names listed under "names in other languages" sections must be officially from Nintendo. Mario & Wario was only released in Japan, so I reverted the Spanish name you've added to Star. In the future, please be sure that the names you add are official - in the past, we've had a lot of fan-translations on the wiki (and probably still do), but our goal is to keep it only official. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:30, 11 October 2017 (EDT)

I see your point. Don't worry, I'll be sure to add official names the next time. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 13:01, 11 October 2017 (EDT)

SMB3 Articles[edit]

First of all, I know TheFlameChomp (talk) told you that Lord Bowser (talk) was going to build the remaining SMB3 articles, but he has since abandoned the project, so no worries there.

Regarding the level article you're making, it's looking good so far! I noticed a few things are missing, so why don't you take a look at a different level, say World 1-1 (Super Mario Bros. 3), and see what you can add or correct. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:11, 12 October 2017 (EDT)

Good idea! I'll check that page. Yes, I asked him and said me the same thing. Thank you! :) File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 16:14, 12 October 2017 (EDT)

GBA Screenshot Uploads[edit]

What are you using to take screenshots? They are turning out blurry. If you are using an emulator regardless, maybe there is wrong setting being used or something. If it isn't an emulator and is the Virtual Console or something, I suggest trying out some emulators. GBA screenshots should be 240x160. Don't resize the screenshots in an image editor. That won't help. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:35, 12 October 2017 (EDT)

I'm using my phone where I have a Game Boy Player version, since I don't own a GBA. I simply take a screenshot, and remove the unnecessary parts of it. That's the reason of those images being of that size. Sorry for any inconvenience, but that's all I can do right now. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 22:42, 12 October 2017 (EDT)
Had a feeling mobile but Game Boy Player? Emulator from the App Store or Google Play? Are you using the mobile's screenshot taker (equivalent to prtscr key on a Windows computer)? See if the emulator has a screenshot feature. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 00:36, 13 October 2017 (EDT)
Yes, I'm using the screenshot taker of the mobile. The emulator is from the Windows Phone Store, and no, I checked everywhere in the emulator and it doesn't have a screenshot feature. The only things are the D-Pad settings and Camera settings (which is used to speed up the game, instead of screenshots). File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 10:11, 13 October 2017 (EDT)
Alright. For right now, tag your uploads with {{image-quality}}. You can insert this in the description right before clicking upload in Special:Upload. I'll try to get back to it or someone else will. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:04, 13 October 2017 (EDT)
Thanks. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 15:20, 13 October 2017 (EDT)

Somewhat related but pay attention to my tweaks for future article creation, from World 3-Airship (Super Mario Bros. 3) for example. For the infobox image, I put in a safeguard to prevent from embedding the entire image, just in case someone uploads something bigger than 256px, like double or triple or larger than those sizes, even though the image is 256x224 and already at the best quality possible right now. I did insert 256px, but that's because that is the width of a SNES game screen. Adjust accordingly, like 160px for Game Boy and Game Boy Color games being 160x144 for a different game system example. I moved the screenshots to the left instead of having them float right and used {{br}}. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:37, 14 October 2017 (EDT)

For some reason, everything looked good, maybe because I'm using the mobile version and everything is on the center but, yes, I noticed that the images in my user page were on the right in the desktop version. I'll take care of that the next time. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 20:42, 14 October 2017 (EDT)

Just thought of it but see if you can use RetroArch. It is multi-platform and uses the emulators I recommend as "cores". It even has the PNG screenshot feature. Haven't figured out how to not capture the contents of the Android screen but rather internal resolution of the system being emulated. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 08:13, 11 November 2017 (EST)

Sig Image[edit]

Just a continuation from Mario jc (talk)'s talk. Goomba SMB Animated.gif, you can just use Goomba2.gif (the image is 16x16), or I don't know where that image you upload is from? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:47, 14 October 2017 (EDT)

The image I'm using now was an old version of Goomba.gif. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 21:52, 14 October 2017 (EDT)
Oh. I was expecting something different. Anyways, I only bring it up because we do have an animated SMB sprite of a Goomba, and you could free up your personal signature slot, unless you like the brighter colors. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:59, 14 October 2017 (EDT)
That's right. I like the brighter colors on this one. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 22:01, 14 October 2017 (EDT)
Alright then. No worries. I just hope that someone else doesn't think otherwise. :P I'm not too fond of people uploading things that are barely derivative of the images that are being used on articles or galleries, even though you are within full rights of doing based on Super Mario Wiki's policies. I get confused when it does occur or when I find older file uploads. Paper Mario Dizzy.png --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:08, 14 October 2017 (EDT)
Yeah, that's why I'm asking things I don't know everytime. You know, I'm not that kind of person that doesn't care about breaking the rules but, well, it was an enjoyable talk :P File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 22:46, 14 October 2017 (EDT)

New Licensing Template[edit]

I've noticed some of your recent uploads are from vgmaps.com or aren't exactly screenshots taken as you play through the level. Using {{game-screenshot}} is no longer necessary. The appropriate license is {{game-map}}. If your image contains mainly level contents and not the protagonist (Mario, Donkey Kong, etc.) or HUD (score, timer, etc.), use the new tag. It should be added to the drop-down in Special:Upload by Porplemontage (talk). If you aren't the uploader, it is encouraged to fix file pages that you stumble upon that haven't transitioned to the new licensing tag. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:52, 19 October 2017 (EDT)

Alright, I will use that license now. File:Icesnifit.gif LED42™ (talkedits) 12:14, 20 October 2017 (EDT)

Sig image[edit]

The Ice Snifit image you are using in your sig has been replaced with this image. I could change that for you, but I'll only mess with (near)active editor's userpages if I absolutely have to. Just letting you know. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:24, 24 August 2018 (EDT)
