Patan[edit]

When you move something with the reasoning that it's the "official" name, it's a generally advisable idea to actually source the name in question. --Glowsquid (talk) 18:21, 30 March 2015 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop moving pages to non-English names without sourcing the info on the Super Mario Wiki. This isn't a warning, and it's possible that you made a mistake by accident or without realizing it; this is simply a reminder for your information. If the action continues, then a warning will be issued. Thanks for reading and keep contributing.

Glowsquid already told you to properly source non-English names when you move pages, and adding "refneeded" is not confirming the name. The move has been reverted: please adhere to the wiki's quality control standards in the future. - Walkazo 20:41, 9 April 2015 (EDT)

Proposal[edit]

Rule 7 of MarioWiki:Proposals states: "No proposal can overturn the decision of a previous proposal that is less than 4 weeks (28 days) old.", so I deleted your latest Parabuzzy proposal. You can re-post it in a week if you must. Please be careful to not jump the gun on any more proposals or I'll have to give you another Reminder. - Walkazo 20:42, 12 April 2015 (EDT)

Badges[edit]

First off, thank you so much for helping out with the badges. I'm going through the (current) badge articles and adding some extra info, and considering the pile of redirects that already exist, it'd be really convenient if you could tell me what articles you've already created. Thanks!

Paper Mario Item Rates[edit]

Hey Binarystep, so far there hasn't been any way to figure that out just yet. While Floogal's Stat/Attack Guide on GameFAQs shows what ITEMS are dropped from enemies (which are already posted now in the Paper Mario bestiary), there's nothing that mentions how OFTEN they do. There isn't even a hacking tool that shows in-depth information (Kirigami 64 allows you to modify text, enemy formations, their levels, and HP, but that's pretty much it). --Zootalo (talk) 00:54, 28 April 2015 (EDT)

I might do that. Should be pretty easy as only the enemies on the field (which are always on the front) drop items, thus equipping any of the "Attack" Badges (First, Spin or Bump) to instantly defeat them makes things even easier. --Zootalo (talk) 01:38, 28 April 2015 (EDT)
Couldn't help but wonder if there's any difference after all with enemy drops when fighting them like normal or using any of the Attack badges to automatically defeat them. How exactly are you doing it now, Binary? --Zootalo (talk) 17:48, 12 May 2015 (EDT)

Excuse me[edit]

Why did you post me a Warning? You are not an admin and I'm feeling extremely embarassed. Goolgenerade

Paper Mario: Sticker Star bestiary[edit]

Hey, Binary, just wanted to say you're doing a nice job on the bestiary for Sticker Star! Keep it up! --Zootalo (talk) 23:37, 5 May 2015 (EDT)

When you're uploading sprites, just make sure they're in .png format instead of .gif; was noticing most of the new sprites on your bestiary were uploaded as such. Apparently all sprites in a bestiary ideally should be in .png format, but as long as we have actual sprites in the first place, it's not too big of a deal. Anyway, just a heads-up. --Zootalo (talk) 14:08, 7 May 2015 (EDT)

Sprites[edit]

It's usually a good idea to check if the sprites you have are not there yet so you don't upload duplicate files, ok? Another thing of note is that you should never upload a static image in the .gif format. .png is the preferred format for non-animated sprites, since .gif is a compressed format with some loss of transparency and allows only 256 colors while .png is a more updated format that supports transparency better. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 02:42, 8 May 2015 (EDT)

I'm too lazy to check but what I know you uploaded duplicates of so far are Clip Guy and Spike Top. You can always check the Paper Mario: Sticker Star category, check the enemies' page, check their gallery, or check Paper Mario: Sticker Star's gallery. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 19:44, 8 May 2015 (EDT)
Actually, I've compared the two clip guy images: the .gif actually has some palette differences to the .png, in which I can guarantee you that it's indexed and therefore, lost some color data. Besides, .gif don't render as well as .pngs if you shrink them, via, say, table BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 22:46, 8 May 2015 (EDT)

Bowser's Snow Fort Guys[edit]

Are you talking about those Shy Guys harassing the red Toad? I was digging through some videos on YouTube and the trip attack does four points of damage to Mario when he blocks it (I assume 7 on your bestiary's normal damage). The other attack that involves a group of Shy Guys lining up and charging at Mario does 10 points (5 when blocked). Hope that helps! --Zootalo (talk) 22:44, 8 May 2015 (EDT)

FX Badge[edit]

Again, thanks for the help, but I'd like to bring up Attack FX B and Attack FX C. You've created individual articles for them, but I'm not sure I agree with that; considering they're nothing more than cosmetic sound effects (excluding that cricket one from TTYD, but I hardly think what it's involved in is major), I think it'd be better if they were all lumped into a single article, in a similar vein to Kaleidoscope. What do you think? Hello, I'm Time Turner.Time Turner.png

I think the badges occupy a different area than the standard RPG item, and besides, most of them have a practical use, whereas these badges are nothing more than cosmetic fluff that aren't even needed to progress in the game. Having a list for similar items isn't a foreign concept, as shown with the Kaleidoscope page and also Fan and Lightwand. Hello, I'm Time Turner.Time Turner.png
No, every badge is placed in a different area, and some badges play more important rôle than others. Other than the Attack FX R, Ms. Mowz's trouble may refer to the Attack FX B badge she is seeking for. Giving her other Attack FX badges won't work at all. Therefore, the player may want to know about a particular badge while not worrying about others. Second thing is, the Attack FX B has had two screenshots, and possibly more if new games are released. I guess if all the A/B/C/D/E/G/P/R/Y badge is merged, the page will be crowded. Separating them may allow more info. In addition, the Badge article has already been planned to be broken into individual pages, so I don't agree with merging them. --Another gossip-loving Toad (talk) 09:13, 12 May 2015 (EDT)
Sorry about arguing like that.Now that I've calmed down, I'd like to apologize for the paragraph above, and I actually am not completely against merging them into one page.
There are three approaches I can think of: (a) to combine all the Attack FX page together, putting the relevant elements together. That is, screenshots together, where to get the badge together, and so on. (b) to combine all the Attack FX badge together, but list them one by one. That is, a section for Attack FX A, a section for Attack FX B, etc. (c) keep them on separate pages, just like all other badges do.
In my opinion, the disadvantage of (a) is that people sometimes pay attention to just one badge, and they have to search through the sections for the relevant information, distinguishing it from lots of text and picture not of the current interest. (b) is much more reader-friendly, because those who wish to study just Attack FX B can just find the section about Attack FX B and read. Never interrupted by Attack FX C. Those who would like to study all the badges at once can go to the Badge article instead. (c) is like (b), and it is more natural, for there's a one-to-one correspondence between the game's badges and this wiki's pages. (The game always list them separately, no one calls them a series.)
I originally planned to do (c), but now I think (b) is also good. If you want to place all the fx badges into one page, I suggest using (b). I've expected for nearly a year for someone to create individual articles for badges, and now there are, it would be a perfect place to write in (b) style. On the other hand, (a)is also useful, but it can go somewhere else, like the table in the page "Badge". The table could possibly be made bigger to include more entries.
I'm sorry for the argument posted yesterday. I doesn't oppose lumping them into a single article, and I'll just want to recommend (b) if you do. I'd like to have some space devoted to each badge, whether it's a section or a page. What do you think? Another gossip-loving Toad (talk) 20:48, 12 May 2015 (EDT)
Regardless of which way we're going, for now, the Attack FX B badges should have separate pages. Making the argument that all of the badges are different is a little odd to me if you're going to have two badges that only have their name in common, and not their location, their method of being obtained, their relevance to the story, their sound effect...

List of Paper Mario Hacking Tools[edit]

Found this on a Paper Mario hacking forum. One of the hacking tools (made by Luigi1er) seems curious, as it deals with enemy stats. --Zootalo (talk) 20:24, 13 May 2015 (EDT)

It's just a BoN acting retarded, don't talk to it. We have had several BoNs act exactly like this, all they do is spam the history section of articles, really. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 21:58, 20 May 2015 (EDT)

In other words they are known as "spambot"s. Perhaps you noticed it because their summary does not make any sense. Very rarely they do, but.. CSRLady Bow PM2.pngBoo-piranha.jpg 03:55, 21 May 2015 (EDT)

Walleye[edit]

They may be similar in behavior to an extent, appearance I suppose somewhat, but in name not really, and I'm not about to call one a "sub-species" of the other, since that would be speculation (combined with the fact that the word is meaningless on this wiki and is an issue we're trying to resolve...); it's fine to simply call it something related due to their similar functions.

Which version of the game is the Sticker Star bestiary data from?[edit]

I think a disclaimer should be added. --Hiccup (talk) 10:20, 25 June 2015 (EDT) Thanks. Can I ask if it is the digital or physical (cart) version?

Fooly Flower[edit]

Actually, policy is to go with the North American name, and that version of Yoshi's Woolly World is not yet out (hence the note). That said, it's probably a waste to change it now unless it's proven to have reverted back to Dizzy Dandy. LinkTheLefty (talk) 01:12, 31 July 2015 (EDT)

Aboutfile-reminder[edit]

Hello, Niiue. 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. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

You haven't been filling up any of the entries of {{aboutfile}}, nor have you been adding a game image category (which, I think, would be Category:Paper Mario: Sticker Star Images). Hello, I'm Time Turner.Time Turner.png

Costume Mario Sprites.[edit]

Hi!

Nice work on the Mario Maker Sprites, but it was my intention to do them. See here for proof. Have a nice day! UserPyroGuy.png (T · C) 14:53, 9 September 2015 (EDT)

Don't worry, I think I've gotten over it. In the mean while, I'll be setting up a proposal regarding other sprites, so I'll have my hands full after that. UserPyroGuy.png (T · C) 07:24, 4 October 2015 (EDT)

Hello. May i recommend that when you upload a file, instead of leaving empty sections that you delete them altogether? Just a suggestion :) RoyNSMBU.png Roy Koopa 21:14, 20 September 2015 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop proposal-sniping on the Super Mario Wiki. This isn't a warning, and it's possible that you made a mistake by accident or without realizing it; this is simply a reminder for your information. If the action continues, then a warning will be issued. Thanks for reading and keep contributing.

Pyro Guy was far too nice about you swooping in and doing his proposal for him: edit-sniping in general is against the courtesy policy, and it's especially egregious when it's over a proposal. And a freshly-passed one at that, the rollout of which Pyro Guy had started and was clearly intent on continuing, as he had also discussed in the proposal's comments. Plus there's the fact that I had just reverted another user's attempt to hijack that same proposal. Clearly you didn't pay much attention to the situation, and you've been here long enough that you should know better than to show such disrespect towards other users' projects.
-
And incidentally, you're racking up a number of Reminders here: they will escalate to Warnings soon (small problems still add up), and seeing as you've been blocked twice already, if you're banned again, it will be for life, despite your high editing output. It's not a looming threat or anything, but worth keeping in mind, and I really suggest you become more familiar with the codes of conduct so as to avoid such an unfortunate course of events. - Walkazo 18:43, 3 October 2015 (EDT)

RE:IP inserting false information[edit]

RE: Beta Images[edit]

OK. I was just copying the text found in the older screenshots for use in the newer screenshots. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 02:26, 30 December 2015 (EST)

Seeing how there are ~600 images in Category:Beta Images, I think there is a MediaWiki plug-in that can automate edits to transition the old linked category to the new linked category. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) 02:49, 30 December 2015 (EST)

Uploads[edit]

Hello! First and foremost; thanks for all your recent uploads! As a suggestion, if the file you're replacing has the same format as the file you're uploading, it's easier to just upload a new version (you'll see the link under the File History table), since no links will need to be changed. Once again, thanks, and keep up the good work! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 11:12, 4 January 2016 (EST)

Super Mario Land 2-related questions[edit]

Hi Niiue. I don't think we've ever spoken before, but I've seen some of your work for Super Mario Land 2 coverage, so I hope you could help me out with this.


The above artworks were taken from the Shogakukan guide of Super Mario Land 2, found here. I would like to ask whether you'd be able to check the Japanese names of these objects, and try to see how they should best be covered by the wiki. Additionally, I wasn't completely certain if this artwork shows a Spiked Ball. There's no "Names in other languages" section to match it with on the article.

Thanks so much,

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 21:01, 16 September 2016 (EDT)

Hi again, thanks so much for checking those names. I've corrected the files accordingly. Hopefully all of the subjects could be properly covered soon, although it may take me some time. You've done some great work so far, thanks Niiue.

Image Category Reminder[edit]

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

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

[[Category:Super Mario World Images]]

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Keep in mind some images can belong to multiple categories. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Your recent uploads for Paper Mario 2 were missing the image category. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:42, 5 May 2017 (EDT)

From what I noticed, this is just for uploads that create a new file page. I think I synced up everything. This response comes from this conversation and this proposal. Also, I noticed File:SoupSpicy.PNG and File:Spicy Soup TTYD.png. For this kind of case, better to just move if the file needs a better name next time. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:06, 5 May 2017 (EDT)
Talk about a hard find. I was going to suggest looking in categories (Category:Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Images) and gallery pages (Gallery:Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door), but the category is a pretty long list (probably worth a proposal/discussion about splitting up images into screenshots, sprites, maps, art, and other images universally across all image categories or if categories become saturated with 1,000+ images) and the gallery was linking to some Super Paper Mario sprites at the time. You got me. You looked in as many obvious places as you could. Where was File:SoupSpicy.PNG linked to? It surely was never linked on Spicy Soup. My guess is List of Zess T. recipes. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 02:00, 6 May 2017 (EDT)

Template:Pmitem-infobox[edit]

Should the template cover Paper Mario: Color Splash items too? Currently, it only covers Paper Mario, Thousand-Year Door, and Super Paper Mario, but Color Splash has quite a few items; Magma Burgers, Paint Star Pieces, and the Birdcage to name a few. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 23:00, 6 May 2017 (EDT)

Yeah, there might not be enough. I just counted, and it would likely be used on only 14 pages. It definitely wouldn't make sense for Sticker Star, with the Book of Sealing being the only non-scrap, thing, or sticker item in the game. If you do decide to add Color Splash, I would gladly add the template to those pages myself if it is okay with you. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 23:27, 6 May 2017 (EDT)
Yeah, I actually recounted, and there are only 13 pages that would use it, not 14. Anyway, now that I read the proposal again, I realize that it says that one of the reasons you created it was to make it easier to document multiple descriptions, while no item that is in Color Splash has ever appeared in another game before. Also, I agree that it would not be worth it to make pages for every sticker/battle card. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 07:58, 7 May 2017 (EDT)
