French names[edit]

I'd like to repeat what LinkTheLefty (talk) asked you on your anonymous user page: Where are you getting the French names? You answered another wiki site, but that isn't a valid source, as their information could be wrong. Do you have the French version of the games, or maybe pulling from the French site or other publications? He also asked that you stop and remove your names until you provide a valid source, which you haven't done.

Any of them, really. The Giant Star edit was called into question, and regarding your answer to it, I'm interested to see where you're getting your information from. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:11, 7 November 2017 (EST)

French Mario Wiki (FANDOM)(for the other french names i'm use the french game)--Mario1981 (talk) 14:15, 7 November 2017 (EST)Mario999

Okay, the other wikis don't work as a valid source, but you're free to use any sources they themselves provide. I would remove the games you've pulled from the French wiki, but the names you've provided yourself from your own games can stay. Sorry, it's to avoid fan names and fan translations on the wiki.

From the french names of the Super Mario Kart tracks it's from french Wikipédia--Mario1981 (talk) 14:29, 7 November 2017 (EST)Mario999

Yep, unless those names have sources, they should be removed too. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:39, 7 November 2017 (EST)

Uploads[edit]

Hello, Mario1981. 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.

Hello, Mario1981. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It is simple to learn how to correctly do so. Just search for the correct category by starting with the following groups:

Images Audio/Video Files

When uploading, copy the full title of the category with square brackets, and insert it into the summary text box (below the {{aboutfile}} template), replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. For example, files related to the game Super Mario World would use:

[[Category:Super Mario World Images]]
or
[[Category:Super Mario World Media Files]]

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Keep in mind some files can belong to multiple categories. Don't put images into media categories and vise-versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Your recent uploads were lacking the above. Please keep this in mind when making future uploads, otherwise a warning will be issued. Thanks! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 09:45, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
