"You"s[edit]

Please refrain from using the word "you" next time. When editing in mainspace, we always write in third-person; that is, we use "player", or the character's name, instead. Thanks and keep contributing. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:51, 20 August 2016 (EDT)

Just another thing: Every time we write a game title, we always use italics. This is done by adding two apostrophes before and after the name (More info here). Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:17, 20 August 2016 (EDT)

Lina[edit]

I noticed when adding the Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic storyline section, you wrote Lina as Imajin's girlfriend. Where did you find this out? At a glance, the manual doesn't seem to indicate one way or another as far as I can tell, but every online source I've found indicates the playable characters are a nuclear family, rather making Imajin and Lina siblings. If this is true, it's pretty obscure info! LinkTheLefty (talk) 17:55, 2 October 2016 (EDT)

I found it in a Youtube video posted in July. Their true relation lies not in the manual nor any advertising for the game, but rather a very rare book that documented Yume Kojo '87 itself. Link is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL9o9zzCUsQMariomaster86 (talk) 4:01, 26 February 2017 (EST)

File Reminders[edit]

Hello, Mariomaster86. 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, Mariomaster86. 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.

File:MBSlvl4.gif was missing Category:Mario Bros. Special Images and the {{aboutfile}} wasn't filled out. You can remove it if you don't want to fill it out. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:12, 24 February 2017 (EST)

Mario Bros. Special[edit]

Do you have a sources that the game runs on Sharp MZ-1500, Sharp MZ-2000, Sharp MZ-2200, SMC-777, and Hitachi S1? If not, please do not add it back to the article.--FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 11:05, 26 February 2017 (EST)

Apologies, I've added sources for the MZ computers. I wish I could add better proof for the others, but there's pretty much no information on these. I even saw a sight claiming that the version for the SMC-777 never made it past the prototype stage. The Hitachi S1 is an extreme rarity in itself, and I only saw a version for it mentioned once - a site selling games for all these various Japanese computers seemed to claim that such a thing existed. – Mariomaster86 (talk) 3:50, 26 February 2017 (EST)
Sorry we were giving you a hard time, but you got to remember: Any new information needs to be sourced, otherwise it will be credited as a rumor or speculation, and we can't have that. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:53, 26 February 2017 (EST)
Turns out, a version for the Hitachi S1 does exist, as well as a PC-9801 version which I heard about a long time ago but forgot about. Both have been added. It also turns out Punch Ball was released on another computer as well, which I also once heard to have Special. I'll look into it. Sources say that a version for the SMC-777 does exist, but I have yet to find any images or footage. – Mariomaster86 (talk) 7:35, 26 February 2017 (EST)

Warning[edit]

Warning.svg
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior (adding false information or information without a source) on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If this warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You kept adding information about other systems the game could have been released on, but without a source, it should not be on the wiki. Your edit kept getting undone countless times, but this is the final straw. If this happens again, you could get a last warning or even blocked! – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 11:06, 26 February 2017 (EST)

File info[edit]

When linking to an external image (i.e. one not on the wiki), you should include the link in one bracket on both sides. So http://nintendoera.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/IMG_5208.jpg should be [http://nintendoera.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/IMG_5208.jpg], otherwise the entire image would show which may cause some loading issues.

And when categorizing images, you should use standard brackets instead of...whatever the curved ones are called. "{}" transcludes information, which isn't what you want. Instead, categorizing should look like [[Category:Mario Bros. Special Images]]. Good job finding those rare images, though! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:31, 22 June 2017 (EDT)

RE:Sourcing information[edit]

To source information, you would put your source between two reference next to what it is you're sourcing tags like so:

<ref>INSERT SOURCE HERE</ref>

The reference will then appear at the bottom of the page in the references section, if one exists. If not, you would place this on the bottom:

==References==
<references />

Any references added to the page will be automatically grouped in the references section.[1]

References[edit]

  1. ^ This is an example reference

RE:Sourcing Information[edit]

What I meant is how should I prove the reliability of my messages from Bando?

We're not as strict on sources for this kind of obscure, hard-to-get information so linking to your posts on the forum should be enough. Also remember to sign your comments on wiki discussion space (~~~~). --Glowsquid (talk) 13:41, 6 February 2018 (EST)

RE:Image Upload Error[edit]

<titleblacklist-custom-imagename> means that a phrase in the image file is unacceptable. What's the name of the file? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:32, 6 February 2018 (EST)

Thumb-31819-1.jpg It's from a site, so I don't know how I'd go about changing its name. --Mariomaster86 (talk)

You can save the image to your computer and change it there. If you're replacing the same type of image, try giving it the same name. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:58, 6 February 2018 (EST)
