User talk:MarioManiac1981

From the Super Mario Wiki

The Maniacal Agent: This user joined the Super Mario Wiki as a n00b editor on May 27, 2018, in the effort to expand Toadette's page. This user has been an avid fan of the Mario franchise since he was in kindergarten, and he has been reading the Super Mario Wiki since 2016. The Maniacal Agent's mission to expand Toadette's page was partially successful, though most of his writing turned out to be flowery. Over the course of time, the Maniacal Agent's edits have improved in quality, while he became better at using various editing techniques. Having edited over 40 articles over 1,000 times as of now, MarioManiac1981, our beloved Maniacal Agent, has become a well-meaning, veteran editor with the intention of helping the collaborative database community of the multimedia franchise that millions, including himself, have come to love, thrive and flourish in a rapidly engaging pace.

(How resonating does this paragraph sound? Let me know at the very bottom of my talk page!)

Italics[edit]

Hello! Please remember to italicize game titles, which is done my placing two apostrophes on both sides of the name. For example, ''Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle'' becomes Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Also keep in mind that the apostrophes need to be placed outside of link brackets (''[[Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle]]''). Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:59, 27 May 2018 (EDT)

Now I know how to italicize game titles. I was initially confused, because I thought that quotation marks were used instead of apostrophes. I've been reading the Super Mario Wiki's articles for 2 years (and I'm an avid fan and devotee to the Mario franchise), but I only decided to become a member 3 days ago, so I'm still new to the editing business and process.

Toadette[edit]

Thanks for expanding Toadette's page with some missing information, but a majority of what you are adding appears to be irrelevant, repetitive, or outright fan-worship. The information about Toadette's powers boarders on her already established sections of her roles or from her personality and traits section, and the information on her friends and enemies may be excessive. Please avoid something like this and please read over MarioWiki:Good writing and the other policies if you need to. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:51, 27 May 2018 (EDT)

OK, I'll avoid redundancy and flowery/long-winded writing with excessive details as much as possible. MarioManiac1981 (talk) 22:42, 29 May 2018 (EDT)

How do you create user pages?[edit]

I want to know how to create my user page, so I'll be able to express myself, and state my Mario franchise obsession. MarioManiac1981 (talk) 23:26, 29 May 2018 (EDT)

Hi. You need to be autoconfirmed to be able to create pages, including your userpage. To reach this status, you must have had an account for at least five days and made at least four edits, so you'll need to wait three more days. Samus SMM.PNG Mario JC 23:32, 29 May 2018 (EDT)

Any evidence regarding what you recently added to the Toadette article?[edit]

Specifically this edit here; I haven't run into any confirmed images and such saying that Toadette made a cameo appearance here. Please let me (and others) know as soon as possible; thanks. --M. C. - Profile | Talk Page 20:08, 3 June 2018 (EDT)

Letting you know the information was already listed here. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:04, 3 June 2018 (EDT)

As mentioned above, I found this piece of information in List of ''Mario'' references in third-party video games, but I thought that it'd be important to include in Toadette's main page. MarioManiac1981 (talk) 20:36, 4 June 2018 (EDT)

Glitch[edit]

Hi, mind providing a source for this? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 13:18, 7 June 2018 (EDT)

Donkey Kong Adventure DLC[edit]

Hi. I'm just wondering if anyone is looking for more information regarding Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle's upcoming DLC, because I discovered that lagoon variants of Ziggies, Hoppers, and Smashers exist in the DLC story mode (via gameplay clips on YouTube), and that, a new enemy known as the Collector will appear in the DLC. MarioManiac1981 (talk) 20:52, 9 June 2018 (EDT)

Personalities[edit]

Please dial down on going into too much detail with your information on characters' personalities, as much of it borders on subjectivity and still uses flowery writing as you were told above.

Also, can you please provide a source for Yoshi having his Super Dragon Final Smash? If this is speculative or false information, do not add this in again, as it is a warnable offense. Samus SMM.PNG Mario JC 23:02, 2 July 2018 (EDT)

SSB4[edit]

Avoid using "Super Smash Bros. 4" or "SSB4" to refer to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, as they are fan terms and not official. Samus SMM.PNG Mario JC 08:06, 7 July 2018 (EDT)

OK, got it!

How do I protect my userpage?[edit]

I was just wondering this: how do I protect my userpage? I'm just concerned, because I don't want any shady user to vandalize my page and make a fool out of me. MarioManiac1981 (talk) 18:49, 22 July 2018 (EDT)

User pages are protected by default, no need to worry about that. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 18:51, 22 July 2018 (EDT)

Do You Like My Userpage?[edit]

Hi, fellow editors. I was just wondering if any of you like my userpage. Does it measure up to the wiki's standards? MarioManiac1981 (talk) 22:49, 22 July 2018 (EDT)

How come nobody is answering? MarioManiac1981 (talk) 22:18, 29 July 2018 (EDT)

I guess it's all right, but if you want honest appraisal, it's uh... a bland list. Let's start on something: what's your opinion on the games you've played? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:54, 30 July 2018 (EDT)
Yo, Bazooka! I followed your advice, and made an entire section devoted to my opinion on certain Mario games. Feel free to check my userpage, and tell me if I can further improve it. MarioManiac1981 (talk)
Better. You think your userspace can have images? Oh, have you considered a userbox tower? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:12, 1 August 2018 (EDT)

Dear MarioManiac1981,

It has come to our attention that you are currently in violation of the userspace policy. Please review the policy and abide by it, or else a warning will be issued. Thank you for your cooperation.

You're making too many consecutive userspace edits over a course of several days. In the future, please try to make your changes in one big edit, rather than multiple smaller edits, as the latter tends to clog the recent changes page. Thanks!

Subjects in upcoming games[edit]

When adding a section on an upcoming game, it's a good idea to tag it with {{new subject|section=y}} to let readers know that more information will be added as the release date draws closer. Samus SMM.PNG Mario JC 01:27, 5 August 2018 (EDT)

King K. Rool in Ultimate = Answering Fan Requests[edit]

Hey, guys! Are any of you happy that Nintendo is finally listening to their fans by including King K. Rool in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? How many of you laud King K. Rool's return to video games, and how many of you are appalled by his presence? MarioManiac1981 (talk) 15:37, 9 August 2018 (EDT)

Tip[edit]

Hey, just a friendly tip. If you want to have your userpage track the number of your edits, you can tag it with {{Special:editcount/MarioManiac1981}}, which will turn into the number of your edits (i. e. 1,703).

Interwiki links[edit]

In the future, please check any that any interwiki links you add work before leaving them. Samus SMM.PNG Mario JC 21:47, 4 September 2018 (EDT)

Poltergust G-00[edit]

While the Poltergust G-00 looks good so far, I don't recall the name from anywhere. I probably missed a trailer of some kind. Where you got the name from should be used as a reference. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:28, 30 November 2018 (EST)

To be honest, I haven't found a source, so far. I've first heard "Poltergust G-00" in the Luigi's Mansion 3 article, where Luigi1234 edited the first bullet point to say that, the "Poltergust G-00 does blah, blah, blah..." I've also come across the term on SmashWiki, where it is used as a redirect for Poltergust 5000; in one of the sentences, SmashWiki describes the Poltergust G-00 as being a renaming of Poltergust 5000, making me wonder if the Super Mario Wiki has already adopted the term. This Luigi1234 is who this issue should really be brought up with, because he says that, "they (possibly referring to Nintendo) revealed the name when Luigi's Final Smash was revealed." - MarioManiac1981 (talk) 30, November 2018, EDT
Well, if you weren't able to verify it, I don't know why you made the article. However, according to SmashWiki, the name is used in game. Working on getting a source, so I'll add it in when I can. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:28, 30 November 2018 (EST)

Pseudo strategy guide padding[edit]

Hello, thanks for your recent contributions, however as seen here with the phrase (...)lastly, Meta Knight's recovery is slightly better, although his dash attack and down throw lose their combo ability. specifically with although his dash attack and down throw lose their combo ability is acting like a strategy guide and should be avoided, as stating that Meta Knight's recovery is better is fine, as it is stating the proper factual information, however stating that his dash attack and down throw lose their combo ability is reading like a strategy guide and could be considered subjective, as you may not even consider Meta Knight having a combo ability, you may think that he has a better combo game, etc. (and your edit did not describe why his combo ability is lost.) MarioWiki:Good writing is a good place to look for what should and should not be included in an article. Thanks for your understanding. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:23, 31 December 2018 (EST)

It's not strategic writing, he's listing the actual nerfs and buffs made for the characters in the game. Samus SMM.PNG Mario JC 07:32, 1 January 2019 (EST)

Sockpuppet/vandal talk pages[edit]

Thanks for finding certain talk pages that really shouldn't be there! Though if they are connected to a vandal or sockpuppet, they can really just be marked for deletion unless there's something important to keep. Also, no need to say what they did in the edit summary, just "Sockpuppet talk page" or something similar will do :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:48, 11 January 2019 (EST)

New pages[edit]

Please remember to add categories and appropriate templates for new pages, like I did here. If you can't provide an image yourself, please also add the image template on top. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:58, 18 January 2019 (EST)
