Birdoshi

Introduction

Wow! good job! welcome!!, I'm Birdoshi!, nice to meet u!, Mauj.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif

Coincollector

Images' info

Nothing to criticize, because you're uploading various images for the stickers' article, but allow me to ask this question: Why don't you try to put an info of sort of the image you're uploading for - besides adding only the licensing? If you don't know how to do, use simply this template {{Aboutfile}} to create an info about the file. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png it's very easy...

About the Size Chart Image

Hmm, well, if you're talking about the sizes in MKWii, then yeah, I'd have to agree that they are screwed up. :P I mean, Dry bones is like half the size of Mario! :O But on the large scale between all games... I'd have to say the chart is pretty equal. :P BLOC PARTIER.

Mametchi-Lover

Introduction

Welcome to the Super Mario Wiki, a wiki for the Marioverse.

My name is BeeBop! (Wierd name, huh? And don't forget to count the ! mark.) and I have seen you frequently on the SMWiki. We can be friends if you want. Have you played any arcade games?

Palkia47

Introduction

Hi there! I'm Palkia47 (originally known as MegaMario9910), and I was wanting to meet you. What's up? Giratinabylydarioss8.jpgPalkia47Palkia.png Wow, nice edits!Dialga.png

From what I've seen, your edits are improving articles, better than what I could have ever done! Improvements on game articles are needed, since we're kinda lacking some major/minor info about the games. --Palkia47 12:31, 29 September 2008 (EDT)
I had taken a look at the proposal a few days before it passed; and I thought of voting, but I didn't. Hmm... I'd be glad to help you with your work. I've been needing to some editing! --Palkia47 16:10, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

R.O.B 128

Sorry

I didn't know you were taking the initiative to organize the Super Smash Bros. special move articles. Do you require assistance? 30.pngR.O.B. 128User offline.gif You're page is quite interesting.

Galleom

Well, I was reading something about genders and I've concluded that Charizard, Squirtle, Lucario, Ivysaur, and Pikachu are male. Jigglypuff is female. By the way, I've noticed your great amount of contributions. You already have more than I do and you arrived later. I see adminship in your future. □R.O.B. 128□ 13:46, 18 October 2008 (EDT)

Although Mewtwo's voice is masculine, it is still genderless until confirmed. In most people's opinions (including mine), there are some legendaries who let you know their gender by appearance. For example, Shaymin is considered female, although it lacks a gender specification. The same goes for Mew. □R.O.B. 128□ 14:29, 18 October 2008 (EDT)

Stolen Images

You've stolen those images of Dash Bowman and R.O.B. 64 from the Star Fox wiki. I happen to be bueracrat there, so this is bad. You might not have taken them from there, but you should notice that those images are not "sticker" images. They are official artwork and belong on their proper wikis. □R.O.B. 128□ 15:57, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

It's ok, you are forgiven. Well, I didn't mean to get in your way. Keep up your brilliant work. :) □R.O.B. 128□ 22:59, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

True, but if you haven't noticed, the sticker images have grey background and thick white outlining. The official artwork doesn't. Just telling you. □R.O.B. 128□ 23:05, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

That's ok. I'm just wondering how you were able to get so much detail. □R.O.B. 128□ 23:24, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Stooben Rooben

Just a Bit of Advice

Please do not create articles on characters not directly related to the Mario franchise or any sub-series. Your article on Panther Caroso was not valid to the Mario series in anyway. Because he was merely a trophy, his article is now a redirect to here. — Stooben Rooben 16:26, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Well, if they only appear as trophies, just redirect them here. ;) — Stooben Rooben 17:06, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
Good work. Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 17:45, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Removing M&SG's Duplicate Article

You're welcome. — Stooben Rooben 23:42, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Re: Smashbox Template

Ah, me and Stumpers had a talk about this, and I've been waiting for someone to give him/me feedback on the subject. I'm removing them because the template is rather awkward. When aligned to the left, it cuts slightly into the article's text; but if aligned only to the right, the article looks too asymmetrical. Also, the template causes the articles to have a lot of empty white space between sections, otherwise it glitches the template. When I made the template, I intended it only to be used once (maybe twice) per article – like this and this. The articles just look distasteful with 5 Smashbox templates on them, so it's for the best to remove them. — Stooben Rooben 18:01, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

I originally tried that, but it made the articles look too empty. So, I'm aligning the images to complement its respective section, as well as the others surrounding it. :) — Stooben Rooben Also, you're doing very good edits lately. Keep up the good work. 18:26, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
I'm impressed! That's the kind of work that's greatly appreciated around here. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be a Sysop. — Stooben Rooben 19:13, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, it will take a lot of work, but you're already on the right track. You seem to know how things work, you're active, contributive, and a kind user. I'm glad you're thinking positively. — Stooben Rooben 19:28, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
You're very welcome. That's part of what I do to make the wiki better too: tell others how to make the wiki better, lol. — Stooben Rooben 20:39, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

User Name

Well, I don't think it's considered unacceptable. It seems like his username is a parody of the band Panic! At the Disco, so I think it's alright. — Stooben Rooben 04:07, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

I'm glad to hear you look up to me! ^_^ Though, there are a lot of other great Sysops too. You're doing your part in the community very well, and I hope to see it get you somewhere one day. — Stooben Rooben 11:21, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

Mario

That's odd. I'm not exactly sure how that protection works. It just says 'block new users'. You've been here for a few months, right? — Stooben Rooben 23:52, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, I'm sorry. I don't know what's causing it. :\ After 2 weeks, you're supposed to have full access to the article. — Stooben Rooben 19:40, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
No, I think you misunderstood be a tad. Two weeks after creating an account, all users are supposed to have full access to the article, whereas you have been a member for over four weeks and still have no access to the article. I'll have to contact the Sysops about this. — Stooben Rooben 20:02, 17 October 2008 (EDT)

Kudos

I just checked your edit count, and wow...you've made almost 1500 contributions in a month. o_o I think the only other ones to do that this month is me and Super-Yoshi. Keep up the awesome work. :) — Stooben Rooben 12:11, 22 October 2008 (EDT)

Hey, small edits are really helpful. If you look at my contributions, you'll see that about 75% of my edits are labeled 'minor'. What can I say – I'm a fan of gnome work. :P Also, good job on that article. There's a lot of articles that need updating. The most detailed expansions I've done are SMBDX, Yoshi (series), and Donkey Kong Hockey; other than that, I mainly just add categories/templates to pages and fix typos. Also, about Mario...no one has any idea as to why you can't edit it. :\ The protection is for 30 days, and you've been here for 32, so maybe now you can edit it. — Stooben Rooben 12:29, 22 October 2008 (EDT)
Good. I'm glad you can edit it now. :) — Stooben Rooben 16:39, 22 October 2008 (EDT)

Uploaded Images

I saw your 'uploaded images' sub-page, and wanted to let you in on a little secret. Rather than listing every single image you've uploaded, you can put this coding on the page:

<DPL> createdby=M&SG namespace=Image format=,\n%NAMESPACE%:%TITLE%,, resultsheader=«showhide»«div»__HIDER__«hide»«gallery»\n resultsfooter=\n«/gallery»«/hide»«/showhide» </DPL>

I hope that helps. :) — Stooben Rooben 13:25, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

Hm, it's probably because of the way I gave you the coding layout. Try it like this:
<DPL>
createdby=M&SG
namespace=Image
format=,\n%NAMESPACE%:%TITLE%,,
resultsheader=«showhide»«div»__HIDER__«hide»«gallery»\n
resultsfooter=\n«/gallery»«/hide»«/showhide»
</DPL>

The only problem, is that it won't separate the images under separate headers like you currently have it. I'm not sure of any coding that's capable of doing that, so you may just want to keep it the way it is if that's the way you like it. — Stooben Rooben 20:20, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

You're welcome! — Stooben Rooben 20:33, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

Collapsible Galleries

Yeah, that's weird. o_0 The template's coding is fine on it's own, but it seems like when the "gallery" and "center" extension are added in the template, it glitches things a bit. Syntaxes are the kwaziest peopleth. </Looney Tunes> — Stooben Rooben 22:21, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Well, that was very responsible of you. Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 22:35, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Stumpers

SSB Moves

Sweet - glad to know. If you could do me a favor and take credit for the fact that you did Lucario and Meta Knight at User:Stumpers/Test that would be great. You can see how to do that by my example on the Solid Snake section. Thanks! Stumpers! 18:32, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

Oh, of course! How silly of me. I'll take care of it for you, then, and unlock my page. Stumpers! 19:16, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Hopefully, after a time you'll be able to edit it - it's apparently (and I say apparently because I can't make heads or tails of it) after a certain time, new users can edit it. In any case, I hope you know that I'm not happy with it being protected - you'll notice that it's the most underdeveloped of the major character articles... and I'm not surprised. :) I'll take care of Mario first, then. Stumpers! 19:23, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Excellent! I'm so glad for your help! Stumpers! 01:48, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
You are really going above and beyond - I have to thank you again! Stumpers! 18:41, 6 October 2008 (EDT)

Galleries

Fair enough. I figured you were just undoing them just because you didn't like them, and were doing it out of spite, so I was like, "No!! M&SG has gone to the dark side!" Glad to know that wasn't the case! Stumpers! 22:35, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Ah, yes... and I believe that means I owe you an apology. Sorry! Stumpers! 22:36, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

Thanks!

I owe you for all your help with the merging! Just keeping up with my other duties on the Wiki was enough to keep me too busy lately... school always does that to me. Anyway, I hope you'll think of me the next time you need a favor. Once again, I can't tell you how great it was having your help. Stumpers! 14:20, 13 November 2008 (EST)

Super-Yoshi

About moving articles

Hi there, I saw your edits for MKWii stuff. Kudos, you did an excellent job. Im just wondering though, do you know how to move pages? Cause I saw you took out stuff from this and copied all that text for a new page over here. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

Oh so you stil wanted the page just incase someone made a spelling mistake of Caroso right? Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

I meant that if people had bad grammer and couldn't spell "Caroso", and they put "Caruso" instead, then thats why you needed the redirect, and not just move the page :P Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???
kk, thx. I just thought you needed help on using the move button =) Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...But however you want to do it, it's fine by me..Talk? C???

Mario

The article isnt locked now, so you can edit it. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

oh. Weird. I can edit it =\ Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???
...lol I know. I can edit it. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

WikiGuest

What do you mean? I was just expressing my dislike for the system. I think it was a very bad choice from Nintendo. How would I get blocked, anyway? It's not like I was flaming another user, man. WikiGuest 14:58, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
