User Page User Box Mess[edit]

MarioManiac164 (talk) kind of has an issue with his user page relating to File:Dry Bowser MSOWG.jpg as it covers up the navigation pane to the left. Would it be in MarioWiki's best interest for a sysop like you to edit the userpage by scaling down the image to around 70px width instead of its full width? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 01:19, 9 February 2017 (EST)

Sig Suggestion[edit]

User:Mario jc/sig, I have a suggestion:

Current
[[File:SMB Smallmario.png]] [[User:Mario jc|M]]<small>[http://www.mariowiki.com/Special:Contributions/Mario_jc ario]</small> '''[[User talk:Mario jc|JC]]'''
Tweaked
[[File:SMB Smallmario.png]] [[User:Mario jc|M]]<small>[{{fullurl:Special:Contributions/Mario jc}} ario]</small> '''[[User talk:Mario jc|JC]]'''
Click edit to see syntax

This is all thanks to Magic Words. If you don't want the arrow, you can ario ([[Special:Contributions/Mario jc|ario]]) or ario ({{plain link|[{{fullurl:Special:Contributions/Mario jc}} ario]}}). This is just in case if Porplemontage (talk) decides to change the domain (URL). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:41, 9 February 2017 (EST)

A User's Submissions[edit]

Special:ListFiles/Yes man - Yes man (talk)'s submissions kind of bug me. Is there any benefit to submitting a separate image where the background is removed? His latest submission, this is the source. Also he only links them to the gallery pages. I say he should just upload over the previous version so we have less images to keep track of. I've also had problems with these for more examples:

I tried once to get him to change and nothing came of it. What do you think? What do other sysops think? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:58, 10 February 2017 (EST)

I can agree to an extent if the isolated version is different than the full picture but I think that Yes man (talk) should try making his own renders instead of using high quality uploads as his base. That way there is enough variation to warrant his separate uploads. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:39, 15 February 2017 (EST)
I wouldn't say that but the angle looks kind of weird. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 05:01, 16 February 2017 (EST)

Need an Edit[edit]

MarioWiki:Proposals/Header, a proposal just passed to create {{TPPDiscuss}} and I think it would be a good idea to make the talk page proposal section reflect that is now an official template, preferably somewhere in rule #1. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:42, 24 February 2017 (EST)

So, he finally showed up. Thanks for taking care of him so quickly. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:38, 26 February 2017 (EST)

The Airship page seems to be a common target, specifically for the content that PhazonCreeper started, as it's been attacked frequently. The page has been locked twice now I think, perhaps it might be best to lock the page to autoconfirmed and above indefinitely? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:40, 26 February 2017 (EST)
Alright, but the IP isn't blocked indefinitely, and he seems pretty determined to ruin the page, so. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:53, 26 February 2017 (EST)

RE:RogueSphere5678[edit]

I realized as soon as I saw your message that I had made a mistake. My friend is over and he made an account... on my computer. Don't worry, I'm not sockpuppeting. If this is a problem, I suppose his account could be deleted and he could remake it at his house, but that would screw up the one contribution he made. Is there a way to move the IP info when he goes home?

On the subject of RogueSphere5678, we were wondering if it would be legal for me to upload a file we made and for him to use it as a sig. Would that be cheating the autoconfirm system?

RE: Wormhole (disambiguation)[edit]

Well, there is vortex and portal, but I am not sure to include them. Also there are many disambiguation pages with two subjects. Worm hole is tricky because of its conjectural name. Come to think of it, it has the same problem beehive once had. {{disambig}} would support my page creation. That's why I went with it. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:44, 7 April 2017 (EDT)

Moved File[edit]

I moved a bunch of files, one of them being File:Overworld Theme.OGG to File:Overworld Theme.ogg, but Help:Namespace needs to be edited to accommodate the change. Please fix it? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 00:21, 28 April 2017 (EDT)


Now more modifications for Help namespace need to be performed because OGG files have been moved using a more appropriate extension:


For clarification editing Help:Licensing.

There are other audio formats supported by the OGG spec, like Opus, Speex, and FLAC for audio, but those rarely, if at all, get used on the Wiki. More information: [1] For daily MarioWiki editing and uploads, OGA use Vorbis, OGV use Theora or Theora+Vorbis. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:33, 3 May 2017 (EDT)

Okay, done. Hope that's all correct. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:50, 3 May 2017 (EDT)
Analyzing Xiph's documentation, my recommendations are as accurate as I can make them out to be while keeping things as simple as possible for editors. If you were wondering, a video with just Theora is just an image sequence missing the audio track (like Xiph's very own GIF format). Theora+Vorbis is what you expect if you understand Vorbis only. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:58, 3 May 2017 (EDT)
Oh no, I wasn't doubting your recommendations, I was referring to my edits when I said "Hope that's all correct". Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:06, 3 May 2017 (EDT)

If the output is OGG, you can change the extension without changing the file contents and without upload errors.

Looks like Help:Media needs to be updated, not just with File:Example.ogg to File:Example.ogv, but to reflect OGG being a discouraged extension. It should also be stated that some converters still output as OGG regardless of Theora or Vorbis content, but changing the extension will not affect anything. Ways to change the extension before upload (but not limited to):

Here's my proposal as a reference. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:14, 4 May 2017 (EDT)

Discussing the changes with the other admins, so I'll get back to you on that. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:41, 5 May 2017 (EDT)
I've created a visual that could supplement the three bulletpoints, however the other admins decide to rework the help page. Would me creating a draft page help in revising Help:Media? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:23, 5 May 2017 (EDT)
Sure, any help would be appreciated! Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:58, 5 May 2017 (EDT)

Here's a draft: User:Wildgoosespeeder/Help:Media More things needed updating and I corrected every instance. I even moved some sections around for better flow. I even expanded some sections. One section I recommend removal or it be moved to the recommended spot. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:56, 6 May 2017 (EDT)

Thanks, changes have been made. Conveniently, it also covered the changes I proposed on the admin boards. I did some minor rewriting/reorganising and excluded some unnecessary parts, such as the method for formatting {{media table}}, as it's already found on the template page itself. I'll get to updating Help:Image eventually. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:40, 8 May 2017 (EDT)
Thanks for updating the help page. A few problems with the revisions you made to my draft. Firstly, I purposely chose to remove anything related to inserting text like this [[Media:Video.ogv]] because what if someone wants to view the file page to make an upload fix or something? I know that {{media link}} exists. Yes, being able to directly download the media is compromised this way, but {{media table}} does this with videos. Also, the MediaWiki software has a box below the HTML5 player to download the file directly anyways if you use the [[File:Audio.oga]] or [[Image:Audio.oga]] method of linking. I also thought that acceptable content should be the first header instead of being a sub-header of audio and video because that needs to be upfront before anyone gets to work creating media files. I chose to change that header to Uploading and Embedding because audio and video is what the help page is already describing as my change is more descriptive how to work with media files. The only thing I thought was fair enough was the removal of an example formatting of how to use {{media table}}. The draft was designed to be thorough and decisive. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 03:11, 8 May 2017 (EDT)
Yeah, I planned to rename "Audio and video" and move "Acceptable content" once I was done with Help:Image. Anyway, removed the part about "Media:". Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 03:59, 8 May 2017 (EDT)
I think you were performing the changes as I was typing but I submitted my message before you submitted the better change so, moot point. I'm glad to see a help page in much need of updating because I did find some misleading information as well. Glad I got that corrected. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 04:37, 8 May 2017 (EDT)

Music Notes[edit]

Hi, I'm just letting you know that, just in case you don't know already, when patrolling new pages, be sure to check some categories (such as Category:Super Mario Maker Levels) as well to access new pages. An example of this would be the level article I expanded (Music Notes) which was once a redirect. Thanks! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 19:49, 28 April 2017 (EDT)

Deletion of redirect page "Inklings"[edit]

I have noticed that the redirect page Inklings has been deleted, simply for being a plural redirect. Per MarioWiki:Redirects, "Redirects are only unnecessary when (1) they are completely nonsensical, (2) they are too general, and (3) the search function takes the user to the correct page without said redirect."

A plural redirect does not meet the three criteria listed above; the redirect "Inklings" does not constitute "completely nonsensical", it is specific enough, and the search function does not automatically take the user to said page without the redirect.

Furthermore, there are plenty of plural redirects on this wiki. Boos, Goombas, and Bullet Bills are just a few examples of plural redirects that exist here. There is no reason that the redirect page "Inklings" should not exist if there are many redirect pages on this wiki that are plural redirects.

Thank you,

IP address question[edit]

Curious how you're blocking anons like 68.194.136.0/21, which, according to the wiki itself, is invalid. Comes up as "unregistered". Said user also didn't do anything, as far as I can tell. New to the blocking thing, so maybe I don't understand, but what does the slash in the IP address signify? A blocking range? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:19, 23 May 2017 (EDT)

Ah, okay, cool. I still don't quite understand blocking ranges, as I'm terrible with binary, but thanks for providing the link so I can research it better! For the time being, I should probably leave the blocking ranges to more experienced admins like yourself -_- Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:07, 24 May 2017 (EDT)

Monty Mole[edit]

Sorry about that. I noticed that nobody else on this site posted the locations for the Monty Moles in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, so that's why I did it on my own. When I went to the main page for that game, I noticed that the locations for the Green Pipes, Chuckle Bean pits, and hidden blocks with Hoo Beans were already posted (or at least referenced to other pages where they were posted). So that's why I figured that somebody might as well do the same for Monty Moles in the game too. If it can't be done on the Monty Moles page however, then can it be done at all?

Media Help Page[edit]

I tried converter SUPER, found on Help:Media, and it contains malware! Remove it as a converter option! It's a pain to remove. I am talking from my Wii U. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:11, 6 June 2017 (EDT)

It's been removed. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:17, 6 June 2017 (EDT)
I hope to find an alternative that is less suspicious and intrusive, and a likely candidate is on GitHub: VidCoder. It might not have the options like SUPER, but it has the codecs Super Mario Wiki supports. Only issue is no support for the OGG container, as it only supports MKV. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:36, 6 June 2017 (EDT)
What should be done for PipeProject:Media? I know PipeProjects is an abandoned feature, but there is nothing warning the user that times have changed with SUPER. Maybe once upon a time it was fine, but if someone were to just see what Super Mario Wiki used to do, they have no idea what havoc the old link might bring if they download the EXE! --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 23:36, 6 June 2017 (EDT)
Good point. We've agreed to remove it from there as well. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:18, 7 June 2017 (EDT)

No problem, glad nothing was damaged/lost. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:59, 7 June 2017 (EDT)

This fiasco with SUPER got me creating my own converter. I need a few things from you (and maybe others). First, please test a program I created, if you have any edition of Windows. You need video files, such as game recordings in an emulator or something. If the video is compatible with FFMPEG, it will work with my GUI. I need you to report any errors or shortcomings. Follow directions how to get FFMPEG setup with my program. Convert the video files and see if it produces a valid OGV. You can open OGVs in VLC Media Player and any web browser that supports the format. This program is how I was able to upload File:SMW Eat Control Coin glitch.ogv. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 01:49, 8 June 2017 (EDT)

I don't use emulators, so I used a short game capture video for your program. It seems to have converted to OGV successfully; no issues in the conversion process as far as I can tell, though an exception error does come up if you don't have ffmpeg.exe or the Output folder in the same folder, even if it asks to download/create it. Marie pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:52, 8 June 2017 (EDT)
Sounds normal. The messages only pop-up if the exe and directory don't exist. It's error correcting and more descriptive so that way the program doesn't crash or give an unhandled exception. You can keep the program running and put the exe in the same folder as the program. Click convert again and the conversion should work as expected, putting the output file in the output folder you specified (after you OK any directories that don't exist and want to create it). --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:43, 8 June 2017 (EDT)

No, not the crocodile, on the right that King Koopa.

Bowser looks exactly the same as the cartoon (King Koopa) The cartoon is american and Nintendo and its games are japanese. So, are the Nintendo Comic Systems official or fanmade? (drawn by american people or the Nintendo japanese people)
