Owencrazyboy9 has been blocked indefinitely from editing the Super Mario Wiki for continuing to make changes against a proposal without discussion or a counterproposal even after being questioned about it, on top of a substantial warning/block history.
See the block log.

Welcome to my talk page! If you want to chat here, feel free to do so. However, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  1. Don't type curse words on this page. I'm VERY sensitive when it comes to that. If that does happen, though, I'll just censor it to protect the innocence of children everywhere.
  2. Don't insert spam over and over again, flame someone or insult me or any of the other users. If that happens, the comments shown will get removed or altered, no questions asked! You have been warned!
  3. If an archived page is unprotected, don't edit it. If that happens, the edits will get undone and I'll give the offender a warning.
  4. If you issue me a false warning or reminder for a completely ridiculous subject, it will be appealed and hopefully overturned.
  5. Make sure the talk that happens here relates to video games or the wiki in general. Other Nintendo-based wikis are fine to chat here, too. Any unrelated talk gets removed.
  6. No friend requests. Not to mention, I WILL NOT respond to friend requests. There is already one here, sure, but no more after that.
  7. No instances of chat that feel like they belong to the forums. They will be removed if any forum chat comments are seen.
  8. Removing or modifying warnings or comments are completely unacceptable! If that happens, they will be brought back (if they were deleted) or restored to its original brilliance (if they were changed) and you will be punished for it...maybe.
  9. To add a new header, just hit the "+" button next to the edit button. This will bring the next talk discussion, which will go on the bottom.
  10. DO NOT move talk discussions from a place to a random spot, because the edit will get undone and you'll be reminded about it.
  11. If you forgot to sign your comment, don't bother making another edit to switch it. I can look in the history to see who posted the comment without me having to put the unsigned template.
  12. Don't impersonate any of the users on the wiki. You could get in big trouble for doing so; that's BIG with a capital B. If you want to see a good example of impersonation, look here.
  13. This doesn't happen often, but if I changed or reverted one of your edits on this wiki, please don't bother asking why I did it. Usually I have a good reason for doing so in the edit summary and can provide videographic or photographic evidence, if necessary. Sometimes, though, if you do ask, I'll just answer on the talk page, if possible. Sure, a lengthy conversation might ensue, but we can hopefully smooth out the rough edges and come to an agreement.
  14. If by any chance I get blocked temporarily, don't leave me messages on my talk page for me to look at later, even if you are feeling kinda sorry for the whole thing. First of all, I can't log back in anyway, so what's the point? Second of all, it's actually encouraged to not do so as shown here.
  15. Lastly, just have fun! As long as you follow these rules, this chat page will be a good spot to hang out.

To look at my first couple messages from 2011-2018, click this link.

All right! You can now begin chatting! If at all possible, I would like to try to divert your attention away from sections 1, 5, 6, 14 and 20 (conveniently labelled on the Table of Contents below), which contain events I'd rather not talk about. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 18:25, 11 December 2018 (EST)

Smash Ultimate[edit]

But the thing is, they always appear as the final bosses for the characters' storylines that they do. Therefore, they are intended as specific entities, and aren't the randomly-generated thing like in the middle of Melee's classic mode. Metal Mario is Bowser's absolute final boss, and Giant DK is Jigglypuff's (with her story being an extended callback to Smash 64). Therefore, not having them is purely withholding information. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:21, 25 December 2018 (EST)

Oh, yeah? You could say the same thing about Bowser's fourth round, because they're always giant every time they're fought and they're not even at the end. Also, "final boss" is misleading. While most characters fight a specific boss from one of their franchises (e.g. Kirby vs. Marx), other times they either fight Master Hand or they don't. Take Mega Man for example. He fights Dr. Mario first and then Mewtwo afterwards. His actual boss fight takes place before the final round, which is against Galleom from the Subspace Emissary. Again, Bowser fights Rathalos whose round is before the Bonus Game, which is before the fight against Mario, and then later, Metal Mario. In this case, the only bosses that should count are the ones with health bars at the top of the screen instead of a Stamina Battle-esque HP counter at the bottom of the screen or a damage percentage meter. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 11:09, 25 December 2018 (EST)
That is wholly irrelevant. They are the final obstacle fought in the campaign, and as such the final boss. Rathalos isn't the boss for Bowser, but is for other characters who face him. Games can have multiple final bosses; Kirby Super Star, for example, has King Dedede, Dyna Blade, Meta Knight, Wham Bam Rock, and Marx all acting as final bosses for their respective modes. The fact is, Metal Mario and Giant DK were individual bosses in the original SSB, and they're even moreso here. Not having them is misleading in that it's not acknowledging they exist, but it's outright hiding the fact that certain entities that aren't the ones otherwise listed act as the final battle for the mode. The stamina vs. % thing doesn't matter either; Metal Mario acted as a boss in the first two games, and had a %. And yes, that's still a boss, just as much as Sagat is a boss in Street Fighter II. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:29, 25 December 2018 (EST)
In case you want to use it as a reference, SmashWiki classifies Giant Donkey Kong and Metal Mario in Ultimate as minor bosses. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:36, 4 January 2019 (EST)
Looked it up. Yeah, they are classified as "minor." Even though the fact stands that they are not classified as "bosses" (e.g. They don't have a health bar at the top of the screen), we can maybe make this distinction in the actual template itself. Waiting to see other's thoughts first before going through. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 20:55, 4 January 2019 (EST)
Metal Mario was a boss in the original SSB, and didn't have a health bar. Giga Bowser was a boss in Melee, and didn't have a health bar. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:18, 4 January 2019 (EST)
My comment said to distinguish these two as "minor" bosses, not the real deal. Again, they are not classified as actual "bosses" (again, they don't have the health bar at the top of the screen and rely on the good ol' damage percentage meter every other playable fighter has). – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 21:34, 4 January 2019 (EST)
Talking on SmashWiki Discord, I'm told these two characters only appear at the end of a character's route during Classic. They do appear during spirit battles, but so do Ganon and Giga Bowser. With that, I'm pretty sure these are intended to be some kind of bosses. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:00, 4 January 2019 (EST)
And by spirit battles, you mean World of Light? Those two are actual bosses, as in, health bar at the top of the screen and both appear in both Classic Mode and World of Light. So do Marx, Galleom, Dracula and Rathalos, to name a few. Metal Mario and Giant DK are just the regular characters with a permanent Metal Box or Super Mushroom power-up and it's just me but calling them bosses is a big stretch; even if they were intended to be callbacks to the original N64 game, even more so in Jigglypuff's case. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 22:57, 4 January 2019 (EST)
A health bar is not the defining factor of being a boss. Rather, the role is, and they fit the role in their respective routes. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:18, 4 January 2019 (EST)
Yes, I meant World of Light. I'd say both the health bar and the role is what defines a boss here. If it has both a health bar and is fought at the end of a major goal, they are a major boss. While Metal Mario and Giant DK do not have a health bar, their role is similar to Master Hand's in previous games, i.e. a boss. In Classic, they share the same roles as Giga Bowser, Ganon, and Dracula, etc. Defeat them to win the whole challenge, the definition of a boss. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:43, 5 January 2019 (EST)
Anyways, since you haven't responded to the above, I think I'll go ahead and re-add them. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:13, 18 January 2019 (EST)

"Permanently Super Mushroomed" is not an argument for this. As the final opponent that has any sort of distinction, he is, by definition, a boss. If Stink Bug Parent is a "boss," this definitely is. Stop being so pedantic, and look at what Alex and I said above. Claiming that "the game doesn't classify him as a boss under any circumstance" is flagrantly false, as again, by being specifically set aside as the most powerful last opponent, he is by the sole definition of the phrase, a video game boss. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:23, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

Smash Wiki claims Giant Donkey Kong as a boss, by the way, and has been since near the page's creation in 2006. His role as a boss in Ultimate does not conflict with his role as a playable character. They can be both, look at Giga Bowser. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:38, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Again, they are not bosses. The giant Donkey Kong in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is just to a Super Mushroom that never goes away and only has a percentage meter, something most Smash Bros. bosses do not have. In fact, Classic Mode doesn't make any distinctions between regular fighters or giant fighters (as an example, Gourmet Clash, Kirby's Classic Mode route has fights against both a Giant Yoshi and a Giant Wario, but they're both labelled without the "giant" moniker before battle. The same case applies to Metal Mario, in which he's just a Mario with a permanent Metal Box item. In this case, the actual "bosses" in Ultimate (as in, the announcer doesn't start the fight with "Ready? Go!" unlike the regular fighter matches, they have health bars at the top of the screen and are only found in Classic Mode and/or World of Light when applicable) are Giga Bowser, Galeem, Dharkon, Marx, Dracula, Rathalos, Galleom, Ganon, Master Hand and Crazy Hand. And no, the stage bosses Yellow Devil, Metal Face and the Dark Emperor don't count. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 21:49, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Again, that they are a "permanent mushroom/metal box" does not matter. What matters is that they are the specifically high-powered ending opponents, which again is the only definition for "video game boss" that there is. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:24, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
"Again, again," it should matter. They are just fights with regular characters that permanently use an item - that's how the giant and metal fights in previous games worked (besides the first game, obviously as the Super Mushroom and Metal Box weren't items that can be used in regular fights in the original). And sometimes the last challenge for a fighter in Classic Mode isn't a boss, but rather a bunch of playable characters (to provide two examples: Mega Man's route has Galleom as a boss, but not as the final opponent in which case a fight against Dr. Mario and Mewtwo one after another is the final rival faced, which are not bosses and finally Bowser's route has Rathalos as a boss but again, it's not the final round. In Bowser's case, it's a fight against Mario and a permanently-Metal Boxed Metal Mario almost immediately afterward. Like with Mega Man's final rival, they are not bosses, but playable characters). – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 22:30, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Actually, it does matter:

The giant Donkey Kong in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is just to a Super Mushroom that never goes away and only has a percentage meter, something most Smash Bros. bosses do not have.

This is one of many qualities that make a boss, an endless powered-up form that the player would otherwise not have access to (outside of Special Smash, but this is Classic Mode). GDK may not have a power meter like the other bosses, but it is still fought at the end of a Classic Route like them. In other words, a boss. Same applies to Metal Mario if he's fought at the end of a route. The Giant Yoshi is probably more of a reference to the second fight in Brawl (as he's also the second fight here), not handled the same way as Giant DK. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:36, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Oh, yeah? Well you can actually do a Special Smash (as in, not in Classic Mode), that makes every single fighter either permanently huge or permanently metal, to name a few. Therefore, the supposed "boss" distinction for these sorts of rivals in Classic Mode doesn't even matter. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 22:51, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
He just said that about the special smash. ._. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:59, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Oops. Didn't notice. XD Anyway, I still wouldn't consider those two and even instances of there being a Giant Kirby and a Metal Luigi in Melee's Adventure Mode "bosses." You have to ring them out the same way as a regular fighter in a Smash match. And in all of those cases, the character is literally the same as a regular fighter with a permanent item attached à la Bowser's fight in Knockout Challenge from Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. The fact people consider those fights to be bosses is just misleading and inaccurate. There was also the time one of you two (I can't remember which) said that the Dr. Mario & Mewtwo fight at the end of Mega Man's Classic Mode route was a boss, but it's not (kind of like fighting King Dedede in the Platinum League before the Dededestroyer Z in Kirby Battle Royale). – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 23:25, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Technically, anyone fought at the end of a Classic route could be considered a boss due to their role. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:26, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
I'd say it's misleading to say they're not bosses. The optional Giant Kirby in Melee was nowhere near the end. The Metal Bros., Bowser, and Giga Bowser were Melee Adventure Bosses, though, and are fought near the end. They just com off as being bosses from a gameplay perspective. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:28, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

To Alex95: Well, the game doesn't consider those types of fighters bosses just because they're fought at the end. That's how the Kirbys from the Kirby Printer, Meta Knight and Dedede work in Kirby Battle Royale's Story Mode, as an example, so why can't the same apply to these fighters in Smash Bros?
To Doc von Schmeltwick: Again, how are any of those bosses? Giant Kirby and Bowser are literally just a bit bigger thanks to a permanent Super Mushroom, the Metal Bros. are permanently Metal Boxed foes and Giga Bowser is even fought just like a regular character in the final event match in Super Smash Bros. Melee. The only time I could consider Giga Bowser an actual boss would be Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but that's only because it has an actual health bar instead of a damage percentage, like every other boss in World of Light and Classic Mode that isn't just a playable character. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 23:40, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

This conversation is going in circles just being on user talk pages. Something should be brought up on Donkey Kong's talk page now. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:43, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
I agree. Though I have to close up shop soon, because I have to go to bed in a few minutes. Either you can bring it up on that talk page or I can do it tomorrow morning. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 23:52, April 17, 2019 (EDT)


Just wondering, what was fixed here? Removing the space after the apostrophes removed the space from the article too, at least from my view, and I don’t see other changes. --A sprite of a Flame Chomp from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.TheFlameChomp (talk) 18:41, 27 January 2019 (EST)

For some reason, on my browser (which is Google Chrome, BTW), and with the main font text being Marker Felt, there's a bit of extra space after World 6-1 that doesn't look natural. I wonder if other browsers or fonts handle that differently. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 19:43, 27 January 2019 (EST)

Toad town[edit]

About toad town. Can we make it sound better? I live by the “best or nothing” rule! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 11:35, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

I think that's as best-sounding as we're going to get for the time being. And besides, most articles on this very wiki will spoil some elements of the games in question, usually including final boss levels and even secret areas. Removing information because it spoils events from a particular game is just ridiculous. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 11:59, April 7, 2019 (EDT)
WAIT I HAVE AN IDEA What if like a person wanted to look up something in super mario sluggeres (just read article) but did’nt want to see photos!!! Imagine if you could turn of photos in your preferences or like spoilers and there can be a command like <Spoilier> Final boss in m&lsss </spoilier> Imagine if someone turned it off then they will not see it!!! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 12:17, April 7, 2019 (EDT)
That's pretty interesting. Hiding these images is also a great way to save on page load times. I mean, try going to Bowser's page and it takes almost one whole minute to load, thanks to there being A LOT of information on it. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 12:35, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

Is Australia an instrument?[edit]

I am confused as to what to write exactly in the "about" template at the top of each level article for Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! (such as Room 1-1 and so on). British English games are generally the ones released in Australia, so is it okay if I just use "European" to cover all regions outside of the Americas and Japan or am I discriminating? -- KOOPA CON CARNE 18:21, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

I'm actually not too sure what to go with. The British English version is the same across both European and Australian consoles (e.g. Yoshi's Woolly World using the term "trousers," even in Australia), so just go with British English. Any objections? – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 18:24, April 12, 2019 (EDT)
Thing is, the game may use different level designations depending on the version. Levels designated "1-X", "2-X", "3-X" and "4-X" in American and Japanese versions are changed to "G-X", "1-X", "2-X" and "3-X" respectively in other regions, such as UK, France, Spain, Australia etc., basically Europe and Oceania. (Apparently the game wasn't released in South Africa.) I would rather go for "European" instead of "British English", but I wanted to know if I should also specify Australia along with it or is it redundant considering the Australian version is equivalent to the British English version. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 18:33, April 12, 2019 (EDT)

Smash Bros. Kirby[edit]

If you weren't sure it wasn't allowed, you should have posted on the talk page first. And I wasn't aware of the information already in trivia, but your tone here was completely unnecessary. I shouldn't have to remind you again about your attitude in your summaries. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 22:46, April 15, 2019 (EDT)


This is disrespectful. You are directly stating what others say (In this case an admin, which is worse) is not worth you time. You should listen to advice and not be rude to it. You may of violated part of MarioWiki:Courtesy. These would include the following slides: ignore other users. and critique an admin's performance behind their back. (due to claiming that their advice is not worth your time). Thanks for your understanding. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 14:58, April 16, 2019 (EDT)

I just simply added that message (which was around on my talk page archive by the way), just to try to divert any regular user's attention away from those sections for various reasons (e.g. my days on the early years of the wiki, major conflicts I'd rather not talk about, etc.) I've removed that bit here, and I should probably do the same to my talk page archive, too. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 15:10, April 16, 2019 (EDT)
The main problem with those comments is that the way that the way that they were worded made it seem like a harsh stab to advice. If you rewrote it to explain it as you just said about why you would want to divert a user from it without making it seem like a rude comment, then it may be re-added. As for the talk archive as it is an archive and thus in the past it does not need to be changed. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 15:18, April 16, 2019 (EDT)

BiS Music Name[edit]

Why did you rename the music name in BiS' media section? You changed them to the 3DS titles, which are completely different from the original ones. --Tent2 KirbySleepingAnimated.gif 18:49, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

I did that because the original names were very likely to be either fan names or Japanese names that were translated into English, because the original soundtrack (before the 3DS remake) was never released in America or Europe at all and the music tracks in question were never given any official English names, save for a rare few that were featured in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 19:02, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

About fan term redirects[edit]

"There is no need to delete alternate name, conjectural, or spelling-mistake redirects unless they are specifically too silly or too general." The redirect is allowed by policy. Redirects are there to keep people away from the horrors of the search page, and as long as there's any chance that there's one guy in the world who will use the redirect, it's not useless. Unless the search page is the best place for the user to be, redirects like this are allowed and encouraged. -YFJ (talk · edits) 14:43, May 9, 2019 (EDT)

The "conjectural" part is a little odd, tbh. We don't allow fan content, why would we allow fan names? Pretty sure it's referring to conjectural titles that have been long-standing on the wiki, and not one that was made specifically for a redirect. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:30, May 9, 2019 (EDT)
It's a redirect. Not an article. Like I said, redirects exist to keep users away from the horrors of the search page. Redirects are an exception to the "official names only" rule, and for good reason. If they're commonly used despite being unofficial, it's a valid redirect. -YFJ (talk · edits) 16:47, May 9, 2019 (EDT)

I noticed you're the only one who is using the "British English" terminology for lots of things. I don't know if it's just because I'm from the UK, but this terminology makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable, and besides I think "European" is actually a more accurate one, if we ignore all the brexit crap of course. Best Fitness Friends (talk) 14:51, June 6, 2019 (EDT)

Let me point you towards this proposal I did earlier this year. We changed the rules into using the "American English" or "British English" terminology for portable consoles and the recent home consoles starting with the Wii U, because it was more accurate compared to using NTSC or PAL for everything. I say "British" English, because it really is the British version ("colour" instead of "color," "draught" instead of "draft," etc.). The Australian version is even the exact same as the British version in question, so there's that. Just thought I'd get you up to speed. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 15:02, June 6, 2019 (EDT)

In terms of deletion[edit]

I hate to come off as rude or mean, but if I am moving/dealing/flipping a file, please don't touch it, especially with {{delete}}. Not only is it hard for my system to process, but should the file be deleted before I am done fixing the filing routes, it could leave red-linking blanks around, which is usually looked down on. Sometimes I have internet problems too, so if 24 hours pass and no change happens, go ahead and delete away, but otherwise I WILL come back to it. Trig - 21:38, June 23, 2019 (EDT)

Reporting Vandals[edit]

Hello, the IP address you reported actually made a helpful edit before vandalizing, and their vandalism to the SM64 template was minor, so I'm not too sure if reporting that IP address was necessary. Seeing that you've already done it, try not to report IP addresses unless their vandalism is big enough to require reporting them on the admin noticeboard. Thanks!

To be fair, some other IPs literally did the exact same thing that IP did a few weeks ago. Who knows if that same user was under a different address and/or using multiple addresses at once? I would say that if the IP does it again, they should be reported and/or blocked ASAP, but that's just me. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 21:58, July 19, 2019 (EDT)
And I say that it doesn't make sense to presume bad faith without any solid and/or conclusive proof, especially considering that said edits are likely based on an understandable misconception. Benefit of the doubt and all, plus definitive proof of bad faith edits is also necessary before a block would be considered, I'd imagine. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters.

Alright, this needs to stop.[edit]

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.

Presuming bad faith with regards to an edit is one thing. Presuming bad faith from an edit that contradicts yours and replying with the implication of "harsher consequences" that you have no means of enforcing - in what appears to be an attempt to cow them into letting you have your way - is absolutely not on, to put my opinion lightly. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters.

Regional Differences[edit]

Alright, is this enough for you?

The R.O.B part in the japanese version of the games uses by default the japanese colours, meaning the programmers had to alter the code a bit to make R.O.B's japanese colours the default one where in the international version they altered to make the American one the default colour. If that's not a minor change in the game's code, I don't know what else to convince you. --CastleResearch (talk) 17:07, July 21, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, that's true...but they did the same for Super Mario Maker's Mystery Mushroom costume, too. The big difference is that Super Mario Maker came out for the Wii U, when the discs were region-coded, meaning European discs can only play on European/Australian systems, for example. Whereas Smash Ultimate is region-free, meaning that changing the language in the Settings menu in-game changes things around so that when playing Japanese, Chinese or Korean, R.O.B.'s default colours are the Famicom ones, and when playing any other version (from the same region-free cartridge, BTW), it's the Robotic Operating Buddy colours. Not sure what else to tell you. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 20:37, July 21, 2019 (EDT)


That could have been a simple mistake, especially if they are new to the site. Doomhiker (talk)Artwork of a Topmini from Super Mario Galaxy 18:48, July 25, 2019 (EDT)

Please check out and respond to the PM I just sent on the forum, thanks! - Hypnotoad (T|C) HypnotoadSig.gif 22:24, July 31, 2019 (EDT)

Fuzzy Bosshood[edit]

For the record, the Nintendo Power guide does not refer to Gold Fuzzy or Fuzzy Horde as a boss - but at the same time, it also does not label enemies that are clearly individual mini-bosses in general (like Gus, the Blooper and Glitzville's Iron Clefts), so there needs to be some consistency with how all of these subjects are treated. LinkTheLefty (talk) 10:28, August 5, 2019 (EDT)

Agreed. How about in this case, any enemies that feature mid-boss-like music (e.g. Lord Crump's first fight, the Blooper and Gus), alongside those that have their own unique music tracks (e.g. The Shadow Sirens, Doopliss, Magnus von Grapple, Lord Crump's second fight) should be considered bosses in some capacity. Not those that feature the standard battle music. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 13:01, August 5, 2019 (EDT)

Janjan Land[edit]

Super Mario Fushigi no Janjan land is a medal arcade game focused around Super Mario Bros. 3. It has nothing to do with the Mario Party series. I was fixing the articles to reflect this, and you undo all of my work. Explain? Shadow2 (talk) 23:23, August 16, 2019 (EDT)

I undid all the edits under the assumption that the game was part of the Mario Party series. Looking at the article again now, I now realize that it wasn't part of the Mario Party games after all. Sorry for the confusion. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 23:32, August 16, 2019 (EDT)

Trig likes help[edit]

Hey, if you would like to help with this little project I'm trying here, to move some SPP files, let me know on my talk page. More simple information can be found here under 'Project'. Trig - 21:56, August 17, 2019 (EDT)

Since someone beat you to the first twenty, would you like to take over 41-60 instead? Same amount, just different numbers. Trig - 22:35, August 20, 2019 (EDT)
In that case...sure! – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 22:43, August 20, 2019 (EDT)


Is there any reason you need to leave a bunch of ellipses in your summaries? The edits have been dealt with, just ignore them. Samus costume, in Super Mario Maker. Mario JC 22:42, August 21, 2019 (EDT)

Sorry. I just get really annoyed when those sorts of edits happen immediately after my most recent edits in question. It's annoying and it's cumbersome. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 23:04, August 21, 2019 (EDT)
IMO, being annoyed is not a valid reason to leave edit reasons with "Grrr" and "....................................", which are both very passive-aggressive. TheDarkStar Sprite of the Dark Star from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey 15:11, August 22, 2019 (EDT)

I don't want to give you a reminder, but you shouldn't leave edit summaries with long ellipses. I even asked Alex95 why putting long ellipses in edit summaries is said to be passive-aggressive, and he responded, "It's just really unnecessary, does nothing helpful, and makes the message longer than it needs to be." Please comply. Dwhitney (talk) 21:38, May 8, 2020 (EDT)

RE: What counts as a boss in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?[edit]

What do you mean you don't know why people keep reverting the edits? It's been brought up both on your talk page and Donkey Kong's, both of which you took part in.

Regardless, a "boss", in its simplest definition, is someone that stands in your way of a goal. Health Bars, announcements, and permanent effects don't matter, it's the role. Giant Donkey Kong fits the same role as Giga Bowser in some Classic Modes. There are also bosses in some other games that act differently from one another, though it certainly isn't a common case.

In the case of Giant Donkey Kong's role (as the example) being different in some other classic modes... so? He's not a boss in that character's progression, but he is a boss in another character's. A boss character can have many different roles. Ever play Kid Icarus: Uprising? Magnus and Dark Pit are both treated as an ally, a boss, and a playable character on one occasion each.

Before Ultimate, Metal Mario is considered a boss in Super Smash Bros. Melee by his trophy (though "mid-level", he is still called a boss), yet he is still a playable character when Mario grabs a Metal Box. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:00, September 7, 2019 (EDT)

Well, yeah. They can be treated by the game as bosses in specific circumstances, but in this specific example, spirits on the Spirit Board and World of Light and other fighters in Classic Mode also have this "boss role" of impeding the player's progress...just like the Giant Yoshi and Giant Wario in Kirby's Classic Mode...yet again, as another example. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 14:16, September 7, 2019 (EDT)
What I meant was someone who stands directly at or before the goal and tries to keep you from obtaining it. Everything else is just a standard obstacle. Giant Donkey Kong fulfills both of these roles. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:23, September 7, 2019 (EDT)
Sure. But then again, there should be some way to distinguish the major end-of-Classic Mode roadblocks on the template instead of lumping them with the other bosses from both World of Light and Classic Mode. It's either that, or start a proposal. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 14:26, September 7, 2019 (EDT)
Well, with the exception of Galeem and Dharkon, they're all used in both, though the Giant/Metal characters aren't exactly bosses in World of Light. Splitting them between WoL and Classic would just be inaccurate, or you'd end up duplicating information to cover both bases. How are you thinking? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:33, September 7, 2019 (EDT)
I meant in the context of not including the bosses with the health bars at the top of the screen. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 14:53, September 7, 2019 (EDT)
That seems like an unnecessary distinction, considering what we just talked about here. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:21, September 7, 2019 (EDT)

Welcome back[edit]

I'm sure you would remember me, I just want to say that I am sorry for the rude stuff I said to you right before you were blocked (which I feel a bit responsible for, since I got a warning at the same time), now I hope we can put it behind us and we can just remain civilised while editing on here. Mario Sakuraba (talk) 05:03, December 10, 2019 (EST)

I actually didn't notice it because I've been on WiKirby for the entire block duration and then some, but thanks for apologizing. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 11:17, December 10, 2019 (EST)

(Late) Welcome Back[edit]

Hi, Owencrazyboy9. Hope all is well. During your block period, I was busy with lots of schoolwork. I made less edits on the MarioWiki, but I still surfed the wiki as a registered user. I'm a freshman in high school, and three months later, atfer you're unblocked, I'm studying for final exams. Time goes by quickly! Mari0fan100 (talk) 21:35, December 15, 2019 (EST)

I could say the same thing about time going by fast. Good luck in your exams! – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 17:07, December 17, 2019 (EST)

PAL is not the same as Europe[edit]

In several recent edits across the site, you've replaced the PAL/NTSC terminology with specific countries and regions, namely grouping all of PAL as Europe. This excludes many countries and regions commonly found in the templates such as Australia, Hong Kong, and South Korea. I think you should revert these edits.--Platform (talk) 02:29, August 4, 2022 (EDT)

I see that you've made a proposal a few years back regarding this issue. Is there any reason that you're replacing instances of NTSC/PAL for older system games when the passed proposal calls for them to be exempted?--Platform (talk) 05:36, August 4, 2022 (EDT)
