This is my talk page. This is only for serious comments, positive comments, and friend requests. If a comment is posted here that is none of these, it will be completely ignored and the person who wrote it will be CURSED! (Okay, not really, but they lose my trust.) Comments that are exceptions to this are any comment made by any one of my friend(s).


Featured articles[edit]

I'm not sure what you mean exactly with your latest "ditto" vote, but I would strongly advise against supporting featured article nominations just because you like the subject in the future, since what matters is the article's quality. You should see MarioWiki:Featured articles for more info on how the process works. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 11:39, September 24, 2021 (EDT)

Uploads[edit]

Hello, OhoJeeOnFire. Good job on your recent uploads, but when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It's simple to learn how to 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 and insert it in square brackets into the summary text box below the {{aboutfile}} template, replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. If you're using the upload function from the text editor, simply add the category link to the description. 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 that some files can belong to multiple categories. Do not put images into the media files category, or vice versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Hello, OhoJeeOnFire. 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.

A few more things:

  • You shouldn't upload full spritesheets to the wiki; it's recommended you crop the ones you need and upload them separately (the ones that would be worth having are the damage and shell sprites).
  • Don't upload duplicate files. If you needed to change the name, use the "move" button at the top of the file page.

Warning.svg
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If you feel this warning was undeserved, you may appeal it.

Not only did you continue to upload full spritesheets, you still didn't categorise any one of your uploads. You need to replace {{uncategorized}} with [[Category:Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 images]]. There were also a number of problems with the images, and I'm not sure what you did to save your images or what program you used to crop, but:

  • You uploaded in jpg but the original sprites were png. They should be saved in the original format, otherwise it adds jpg artifacts to the sprites.
  • The sheets were way smaller than the original. To get the original size, you had to click on the "Download this sheet" link or right-click the image and select "Save image as..."
  • The cropped sprites left some background colour behind. Again, I don't know what program you used, but you can use Photoshop or even a simpler program like Paint.net and use the magic wand tool to easily remove the background without any problems.

Responding to your post, there's no need to upload every single frame of a character's animation. One or a few of the key ones (idle sprite, damaged sprite etc.) is enough to show what the character looks like. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 20:34, October 6, 2021 (EDT)

Remember to categorise your uploads. Also, articles can have both the static and GIF sprites. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 06:21, December 5, 2022 (EST)

The reminder shows you how to add the category (square brackets, "Category" prefix with a colon, not a vertical bar). Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 00:28, December 26, 2022 (EST)

Please remember to add file categories. Also, rather than adding one image to an article one at a time as you upload, upload batches or all of them first, then add them all at once to the article to reduce the number of edits on the history page.

Stubs[edit]

One or more pages that you have recently created have been deleted or marked as a stub article (Gentle Slope and Steep Slope). Please consider the following ideas and suggestions when expanding/creating an article:
  • Before saving a new page, be sure that you have put as much effort and information in the article as you can.
  • Make sure that the page follows all of the rules that are outlined in the Manual of Style.
  • Perhaps upload a few images that can be used on the article.
Please don't take this notice as a dejection; this is just an informative notice and we encourage you to keep contributing.

There is way more information that can be added than just the Super Mario Maker 2 info. If you need more time, work on the article(s) in your sandbox. Also, one thing worth noting is that navigation templates (such as Template:SMM2) should not be substituted; just add {{SMM2}} to the bottom of the page. Thanks!

Formatting[edit]

You don't need to link to the same subject multiple times in a paragraph. Only one link is enough (see MarioWiki:Manual of Style#Linking, linking, linking!). Also, there have been some instances where you didn't do this but so it's clear, game titles need to be italicised (e.g. Super Mario 3D World should be formatted as Super Mario 3D World - see MarioWiki:Manual of Style#Italicizing titles). Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 22:23, October 7, 2021 (EDT)

Also, game titles should always be written in full rather than abreviated like "SMB" for Super Mario Bros. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 11:36, October 8, 2021 (EDT)
Game titles need to be italicised in section headers as well, and you need to capitalise the first letter for image captions just like normal sentences. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 13:41, October 8, 2021 (EDT)

Main reason[edit]

The only reason why I only put information about the slopes in Super Mario Maker 2 is because these slopes are peaceable parts and I only wanted to separate the information about just that. I don’t have any more information about slopes. That’s all I know.

—-OhoJeeOnFire (talk) 10:47, October 8, 2021 (EDT)

Identifiers[edit]

Identifiers in article titles are only used if the title is shared with another article on the wiki, which wasn't the case with Slope or Bridge. I understand the latter was already a redirect link, but that could still be converted from a redirect into the intended article. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 12:40, October 8, 2021 (EDT)

Your username[edit]

As a connoisseur of usernames that end on "OnFire", welcome to the family. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 13:07, October 12, 2021 (EDT)

Userspace[edit]

Please read MarioWiki:Userspace#What about user subpages? If anyone wants to make a friend request, they can do it here on the main talk page. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 08:13, October 21, 2021 (EDT)

Yeah, but what if I want to separate the friend requests from normal messages? —-Doopliss's sprite from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door OhoJeeOnFire (talk) 08:16, October 21, 2021 (EDT)

I do not think that is aloud the friend requests go on the normal talk page. For example: Do you want to friend me? (for real) Bubbasour11 sprite.pngBubbasour1117

Sure! Let’s be friends. —-Doopliss's sprite from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door OhoJeeOnFire (talk) 10:38, October 21, 2021 (EDT)

I will ad your userbox when I have time mine is on my usepage. Bubbasour11 sprite.pngBubbasour1117

Nominations[edit]

You're far too overzealous in terms of featured article nominations. In the past month or so, you have nominated two articles to be featured, all of which are failing. Read the featured article requirements, read the article multiple times, ask other users for their opinion, etc. A page being large does not mean it is good nor does it mean it should be featured. Also, proposal templates do not fit onto a featured article page, and you can't really cancel one. Preferably, make sure the article is in a perfect state before featuring, and don't do so based on impulse. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 11:26, October 21, 2021 (EDT)

Editing user pages[edit]

Um so I am fine with you fixing your userbox on my page but for future reference you are not soposed to do that and tell them on there talk page. Like I said I am not mad just other people might be.

Re: Question[edit]

You said "yes" to #1 but which one? Bubbasour11 sprite.pngBubbasour1117

I know that the answer for monthly Inquisition or new one is yes and that it is #1 but it is not a yes or no question say monthly Inquisition or new one. Bubbasour11 sprite.pngBubbasour1117

Chain Chomp unfeature nomination[edit]

The article did have a rewrite template when I started the nomination and was actually resolved quickly, I would have cancelled it but since we can't do that the nomination just has to run its course until the deadline date. Please stop rubbing it in. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 07:16, November 1, 2021 (EDT)

King Choropu Spritesheet[edit]

Hey, so what was that King Monty Mole spritesheet? If your talking about this: https://www.spriters-resource.com/custom_edited/papermariocustoms/sheet/106762/ or https://www.spriters-resource.com/custom_edited/papermariocustoms/sheet/106763/, those are just some unofficial sprites someone made, we don’t use custom fan-made sprites for the MarioWiki (excluding user pages). If it isn’t or is those sprites tell me, (send me a link of the spritesheet if it isn’t the two I listed). MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 12:43, November 8, 2021 (EST)

Debates and proposals[edit]

Some of us prefer to bide our time to wait for more substantial evidence to arise (which it usually does) before proposing anything, hence why there are a few unresolved debates, as proposals can take a certain extra amount of energy to pull through. Coming in and proposing to "settle" it (especially against it) is therefore rather inconsiderate. Just letting you know. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:04, November 19, 2021 (EST)

I did see that comment, by the way. Anyways, glad you're taking feedback. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:16, November 19, 2021 (EST)
Considering I wouldn't have merged anyway without a proposal, proposing simply to maintain status quo is redundant and simply causes more stress in the long run. If keeping it the same is all you want, you probably ought to cancel, because without further evidence being found or given by Nintendo, it's not exactly going anywhere. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:14, November 20, 2021 (EST)
I concur. Sometimes, something new comes along that then makes a proposal to "settle" a matter a pointless show. Such things resolve themselves. However, the only way to overturn a proposal is to make a new proposal, which is a hassle for everyone involved. LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:08, November 21, 2021 (EST)
I'm glad you listened, but your late-proposal comments are, to put it mildly, bold. You are still learning the ropes of the wiki, so you are not in a position to be lecturing seasoned regulars about "dogma," especially since literally no one was asking or prepared for a proposal at this juncture. I'll let it slide (can't speak for others), but for the future, please be more mindful, just so we're clear. Also, when you move a page, you are the one responsible for cleaning up the remaining links on main space. I took care of the Flying Goomba and Polterpiranha since you're new, but next time, use Special:WhatLinksHere. When you do, make sure to edit any templates first and then wait for things to refresh. LinkTheLefty (talk) 09:07, November 22, 2021 (EST)
The point is "please don't use that word for something so mild as opinions on a video game enemy," it's a little offensive. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:54, November 22, 2021 (EST)

RE:I used your signature.[edit]

You did attribute me properly and never actually passed off your comment as mine, so I think you'll be fine. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 19:46, November 21, 2021 (EST)

Your talk page[edit]

Hello, your talk is not very well legible in default CSS, please use a background that contrasts better with black. Thanks. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 14:18, November 22, 2021 (EST)

Re:Attack[edit]

Eh, it seems pretty clearly to be a leftover from the Bowser Memory Boo article. Like I indicated, it's by no means an enemy to the player, so leaving its action as an "attack" reads a bit wrong. Consider also that the remake changed M's Super Mushroom to a Mega Mushroom, so it didn't need to appear, making it correct to call it part of the original shrinking animation. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:13, November 30, 2021 (EST)

Undergrunt Vote[edit]

Hey, I changed the layout of the Undergrunt Proposal so I recommend submitting your vote again. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:26, December 14, 2021 (EST)

Hi again, I made a strong counter argument to how the Undergrunts are not related to Monty Mole. Check out the proposal and leave a comment saying if you agree or not. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:51, December 14, 2021 (EST)

Help with Ice Piranha Plant[edit]

The Mario Portal's English translation is currently calling the Ice Piranha Plant "Frost Piranha". This is despite the fact that Frost/Ice Piranha Plants are completely separate in terms of looks and powers. I'm afraid people will try to use this to suggest they be merged again, if you have the time, could you please help me figure out what to do? PrincessPeachFan (talk) 12:14, August 14, 2022 (EDT)
An Ice Piranha Plant isn’t the same as a Frost Piranha. The Ice Piranha Plant is basically a Venus Fire Trap that shoots Ice Balls. A Frost Piranha is just a regular Piranha Plant of a different color. I recommend trying to explain that this so-called "Mario Portal" is not a valid source, since most of it’s explanations are basically opinions that aren’t necessarily true. Red Oho Jee from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. OhoJeeOnFire (talk)
Another proposal is going on to get the pages merged again. Could you please help me come up with a good reason as to keep them separate? PrincessPeachFan (talk) 08:46, April 30, 2023 (EDT)
