Hello, PhGuy12. 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.

|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|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.

Because all the photos of MK8 you uploaded months ago have no aboutfile template compiled. I want to see where you find them since Shy Guy Falls is missing. YoshiCGicon.pngTSUNAMIPlessie Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png

When adding course icons[edit]

Make sure they don't screw up the table :)


Moving files[edit]

Hi. When you move a file, make sure to tag the redirect that is created for deletion. Yoshi876 (talk)

Stub Reminder[edit]

Hello, just a reminder regarding to the recent article page you created. Make sure you add as much information of content possible or it's consider a stub page and will be delete. Thank you. Alien Bunny Sprite.pngL151Onnanoko transparent WC98.png

Wild Woods Pic[edit]

Hey, sorry for uploading the pic with a really long name to it. I was editing from my phone and it messed things up. Thanks for fixing it! MK8 BabyRosalina Icon.pngYoshilover76Yoshi SSB artwork.png(talk · edits · work) 23:11, 24 April 2015 (EDT)

Mario Kart[edit]

Hi, I wanted to tell you that the Mario Kart dates I was doing was okay to do because I asked Walkazo if I could do that and told me yes. So please don't undo those edits. PowerKamekSignature.png(talk|contribs) 21:00 13 May 2015 (EDT)

Moving files[edit]

There is no reason for you to move the .ogg files like you have been. The only reason to move a file is an undescriptive name (i.e. screenshot.jpg) or irrelevant name (i.e. Donkey Kong is a loser.png). Please refrain form moving files without good reason in the future. Thank you. JLuigi.pngJ-Luigi (talk) 16:41, 3 December 2015 (EST)

PNG Monster[edit]

Check out PNG Monster some time. It applies the best compression algorithm to PNGs, reducing server strain and is more fair to those with not so good download speeds. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:17, 9 June 2016 (EDT)

Artwork uploads[edit]

Great stuff on getting that Super Mario All-Stars artwork. Did you scan it yourself? Thanks, and keep contributing.

Thanks for uploading new images of the Mario Kart Wii trading cards I uploaded! All I have access to is my camera phone, and that doesn't take very good pictures :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:07, 25 October 2016 (EDT)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for catching that mistake on the Wart page I made. I thought I had read through the page close enough, and thought that that wasn't mentioned yet. I must have read over it too quick. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 19:49, 1 February 2017 (EST)

SM64 Red Links[edit]

Hey, don't worry about the red links I'm making on the SM64 articles. I'm currently working on creating the full pages, so there's no need to make a redirect page. The full pages will be made throughout today. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:10, 6 February 2017 (EST)

File Page Move Tip[edit]

Overwriting the entire contents of a file page redirect with {{delete}} makes it easier to pinpoint what file references need fixing. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:10, 10 March 2017 (EST)

SMK tracks[edit]

You keep removing sections from Super Mario Kart tracks. Why are you doing this? All Mario Kart track articles are split into sections, there's no reason SMK tracks should be an exception to this. Also, having an image at the top left of an article before the first sentence looks awkward.

PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 20:30, 9 April 2017 (EDT)

Well, some articles about SMK tracks are short, with few lines in each section. So I thought it would be better to join the sections by removing the blanks. But whatever. I removed the MKSC minimaps from the body of the article as they are inserted in the infobox. --PhGuy12 (talk) 14:52, 10 April 2017 (EDT)

Thank You![edit]

Hi, I was just checking out the Super Bell Subway page which I added the sponsors section to the other day, and noticed that you split the "Courses" list in the "Sponsors" section into two side-by-side columns. Thank you very, very much for that, I had no idea how to do it, and it's nice to see people improving my "Sponsors" sections (And that people are noticing them!) But anyway, thank you! :D BBQ Turtle (talk) 15:39, 18 April 2017 (EDT)

You're welcome! :D I also had no idea how to do this, until I remembered an old edition of the SM3DW article that divided the list of enemies into columns. --PhGuy12 (talk) 19:20, 19 April 2017 (EDT)

Media Uploads[edit]

Nice work getting media uploaded for Super Mario Bros. 2 and Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic. To make those pages much cleaner to read, I created subpages with the help of {{main-media}} on the game pages:

That template auto generates a proper redlink to a page dedicated to listing media. Just be sure to update {{media nav‎}} for each new page you create. It's been done for you. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:39, 2 August 2017 (EDT)

Okay. Thanks for the help! --PhGuy12 (talk) 18:54, 2 August 2017 (EDT)

Kart Infobox images[edit]

Sorry, I goofed with the summary. I meant the Kart infoboxes altogether. While the other standard karts in MKDS don't have an image of just the kart currently, every other kart page (for example, ones relating to Mario Kart 8) have an image of just the kart itself when possible. To better show how the kart looks, an image of just the kart should be shown if able. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:09, 15 September 2017 (EDT)

Tuxedo Mario "SMO Concept Art"[edit]

Not really a concept artwork. The artwork is not consistent with other SMO concept artworks, which have multiple sketches. Looking at the Google translation of the tweet, it says:
"Currently, it is a sketch of Mario's "Wedding" costume re-appearing at the event of the smartphone application "Super Mario Run"! I combined a white tuxedo with a key collar red bow tie and made it a glamorous design."
So it's a special hand drawn artwork celebrating the SMO-themed event (Gold Goomba Lite) in Super Mario Run, with SMO-related buildings like the Wedding Tux Mario statue. - Infinite8 14:55, 3 August 2018 (EDT)

It's really a conceptual art, as the final part of the post suggests. The SMR event was simply an opportunity to publish it. Note that the dates on which the concept arts of the Broodals were posted coincide with the release of their costumes in the game.

My unlucky timing strikes again[edit]

Beat me to it! Thanks for finding out about the fan-made logo. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:10, April 22, 2019 (EDT)


Why did you undo my edit the Toad page. Yoshi - Mario Party 10.pngYoshiFan08(Talk)(Edits)SMW2yoshi.gif

Do you have these files?[edit]

I noticed you uploaded Mario Kart: Super Circuit microsite images from Do you have the file (and even others from the Super Circuit Microsite)? --Mario1981 (talk) 09:26, January 11, 2020 (EST)

Wart Jr.[edit]

I must have misread the first character on this (pretty low resolution). That being said, it is a similar name structure... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:35, February 8, 2020 (EST)
