Hello[edit]

I see you are placing [[Category:Mario Kart: Super Circuit]] under the game's race track pages. Please know that [[Category:Mario Kart: Super Circuit Race Courses]] already serves as a sub category of the main category, as part of the Category Branch trees on the MarioWiki:Categories. --Alien Bunny Sprite.pngL151Onnanoko transparent WC98.png 00:48, 9 May 2017 (EDT)

Okay, sorry about that. I thought to add them there just in case.

RE: Translations[edit]

From YouTube, or websites like this, then I translate the ones I know the meaning to myself. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:20, 4 July 2017 (EDT)

RE: MKWii Battle Course Minimaps[edit]

MarioWiki is more relaxed with editing than other NIWA wikis (which has its own pros and cons, from my experiences editing). If something is missing, just make the edits and uploads. I'm not a moderator. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:28, 15 July 2017 (EDT)

Wii U Screenshots[edit]

If your Super Mario Maker screenshots are of you playing the game yourself, did you know that you can use your Wii U's built-in browser to upload 1280x720 images of games instead of the more limited 800x450 taken from Miiverse? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:13, 17 July 2017 (EDT)

Should be fine. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:52, 17 July 2017 (EDT)

If you are directly converting JPEG to PNG, it is against policy to upload that image and is recommended to upload the original JPEG. This is different than replacing a JPEG with an image recaptured from a lossless source and then saved as a PNG, as that is allowed. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 04:54, 20 July 2017 (EDT)

Re: SMM Image[edit]

OK. Thanks for the information. I'll undo the previous edits I've done to both of those images you've uploaded. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 00:24, 20 July 2017 (EDT)

Personal images[edit]

Personal-image.png

You currently have too many personal images.

Users are limited to a maximum of five personal images, which can be used on your userpage and/or for a signature on talk pages (see the personal image policy for details). Please select the personal images you would like to keep and mark all others for deletion using the {{delete}} template. If you have not relinquished your extra images within one week of receiving this notice, five images will be selected for retention at random, and the rest will be deleted. If you continue uploading more images and exceeding the limit, then a warning will be issued.

You currently have 7 personal images, which meams at least three will have to go per policy. Just a heads up. LBsig.png LB (talkeditsforum) 10:16, 20 July 2017 (EDT)

I was unaware of that policy. Thanks for the heads up and I'll get right on that. LuigiMaster123Icon.png LuigiMaster123 10:20, 20 July 2017 (EDT)

Uploads Optimizations[edit]

I see that your uploaded PNGs could use some optimization by using PNG Monstrous. If you don't have Windows, there are subsections of other PNG optimizers for other operating systems (those programs are not owned by me). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 01:31, 27 July 2017 (EDT)

I don't have a Mac so I can't really help you getting the settings correct. However, I would get in touch with Supermariofan67 (talk) because he is the one who introduced me to the Mac PNG optimizer, but I don't know if he will get back to you. His current status:
Navigation: (User pageTalk pageSandbox 1Sandbox 2File Maintenance Project PageStatusSignature)
Status: Slightly active. (Updated at 23:09, August 2, 2019 (EDT))
Current project: Replacing and uploading Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Yoshi's Wooly World screenshots, doing various file maintenance (mostly for those two games), and (more rarely) rewriting/expanding articles for various stuff, mostly related to YWW/SM3DW/SMG2/SMM2. I plan to also work on NSMBW, SM64, SMO, CT:TT and possibly other games at some point.
--Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 20:10, 27 July 2017 (EDT)

Yes, ImageOptim is similar to PNG Monstrous. In the settings, make sure "enable lossy minification" is off (in the "quality" tab of the settings screen). In the general tab, make sure Zopfli is on. Enabling other options in that list (e.g., PNGOUT and OptiPNG) can also be a good idea, but it will take significantly longer and the effects may be insignificant for some images. --Super Mario Fan 67 (TCS) 11:55, 30 July 2017 (EDT)

Music[edit]

It would be very hard for me to upload any music from Mario Kart Wii when I don't have them, nor do I have the means of accessing them. I'm able to upload music from Mario's Time Machine because I happen to already have them in a MIDI format, which I can then convert to OGA. Without the original files, it'd be really hard to do anything. Still, I'm sure someone has the clips; perhaps you'll have better luck if you ask on the forums. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 12:37, 5 August 2017 (EDT)

Media Uploads[edit]

Seems like you are working on getting some media uploaded for Super Mario Galaxy. To make that page much cleaner to read, I created a subpage with the help of {{main-media}} on the game page:

Read the documentation how to use the template. Just be sure to update {{media nav‎}} for each new page you create. It's been done for you. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:54, 5 August 2017 (EDT)

Thanks![edit]

Hey, thanks for helping me fix those links to List of games by date! I feel it went a lot quicker when other people were helping. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 14:38, 6 August 2017 (EDT)

Categories[edit]

Hi. Just a heads-up: as per MarioWiki:Categories, when it comes to adding subject categories to an article, we only need the most specific one for each game its appeared in. So when adding a game-specific subject category like Category:Yoshi's Woolly World Bosses, any less specific categories like Category:Bosses and Category:Yoshi Bosses can be removed (unless it's also a boss in another general or Yoshi-series game that doesn't yet have a subject subcategory) since it already falls under both of them. Other than that, thanks for your help with category maintenance! Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:37, 9 August 2017 (EDT)

RE: Image Quality[edit]

No, it should be the same. It might be because sometimes when you view the image at full resolution and then go back to the article, the image on the article looks more "pixelated" and therefore less blurry for a bit. (It's happened to me before, but I don't know what causes it.) JPGs generally look more blurry when scaled down, though, so it's supposed to look that way on the page. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:30, 17 August 2017 (EDT)

Wario Land 3[edit]

I'll take it from here with the images, but please tell me, is this ( https://www.mariowiki.com/File:Fire_robota.png ) showing up with the correct yellow head? Because it isn't for me, but every time I make a new revision, the onlder version turns into the correct version... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:32, 22 August 2017 (CT)

Bowser Golem[edit]

Since you created the redirect Bowser Golem, may I ask where you got the name from? Incidentally, it now redirects to Bowser Monument, whose name was pulled from the guide. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 23:19, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

Fair enough. I've changed it to the Prima name for now. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 23:28, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

Chef Bro[edit]

Hey! I noticed you added this. Do you have a source for that name? Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:31, 5 September 2017 (EDT)

Ah, you must be referring to Mount Volbono. I'll ask the page creator, then; sorry to bother you. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:44, 5 September 2017 (EDT)

Screenshot Recommended Procedure[edit]

If you want to submit screenshots, try my WIP guide. Emulators offer the best quality. No more YouTube or whatever. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:53, 13 September 2017 (EDT)

Regional Coin Reference[edit]

It'd be best to reference that tweet about the Regional Coin then, at least for now. Do you know where that would be, because I can't find it? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:56, 17 September 2017 (EDT)

A little bit improper for my taste, but it'll do. Thanks! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:05, 17 September 2017 (EDT)

followbox repuest[edit]

Yo! I was wondering where your followbox was signed --BroccollyGuy

My friend box is located here, if that's what you're talking about. LuigiMaster123Icon.png LuigiMaster123 03:19, 19 September 2017 (EDT)
I noticed that you tried putting my friend box on your page, but the image that's supposed to be there (my Mii) didn't show up. Try looking at the image (File:LuigiMaster123.png) and seeing if there are any spaces or misplaced letters/symbols in it. That might fix the problem. LuigiMaster123Icon.png LuigiMaster123 03:35, 19 September 2017 (EDT)
By the way, go here if you want some help on using your signature. LuigiMaster123Icon.png LuigiMaster123 03:41, 19 September 2017 (EDT)

RE: My Signature Icon[edit]

I just saw the icon in Special:UnusedFiles. If you feel that it was tagged with {{personal-image-abandoned}} by mistake, feel free to revert the edit and make the effort to use the personal image. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:25, 7 October 2017 (EDT)
