Something wrong on the Forums

Today I got a message from someone on the forums and in the message box under the logo it says My Messages [1] and I replied to it already, it keeps saying I have a new message and there is none. The My Messages [1] won't ever change. I don't know what is wrong, can you help me? Fuzzy-NSMBU.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

OK thanks, I will try it. Fuzzy-NSMBU.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

Dynamic Page Lists

They are gone.
Now since you've deleted (or was it because or MediaWiki uppdate?) some articles, including MarioWiki pages are now left with "Invalid tag extension name: dpl". Examples: Super Mario World (television series), MarioWiki:Personal Check/Personal Images. I hope you'll reinstall it. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

It wasn't working after the update and was a little too heavy on the database. Let's see how we do without it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:05, 19 August 2011 (EDT)
So, is there any hope that it will return? I'm asking, because Help:DPL is linked from most of the talk pages from welcome template, as well as being mentioned on Help:Contents. SWFlashSWFlash.svg
I've removed those links. I'd really love for us to work around not having it so we don't need to add it again. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:17, 19 August 2011 (EDT)
Also broken stuff: MarioWiki:Changing username, MarioWiki:Pipe Plaza. Link that needs to be deleted: MarioWiki:Rules. Also, the Help:DPL needs to be either deleted or marked as "doesn't work anymore". SWFlashSWFlash.svg


It seems the thumbnail for some of the large images (ex: this and one of the revision of this) does not display correctly. Mind investigating that? --Glowsquid 13:40, 20 August 2011 (EDT)

I decided to revert back to using the MediaWiki default maximum image area for creating thumbnails: 12.5 million pixels or about 3500x3500. Reasoning is that this puts less of a strain on the server, and it's not like we're using images anywhere near this size on the actual article pages. I'll help resize and reupload. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:33, 20 August 2011 (EDT)
I was wondering why the 4000x4000 pixel images that I uploaded two months back were having thumbnail errors today. At least I now know why that is. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 17:32, 20 August 2011 (EDT)


How did you get this whole (awesome) Porplemontage Enterprises idea? I'm curious. WikiofSmash"The EarthBounder" 20:02, 20 August 2011 (EDT)

Well, I started picking up wikis with the formation of NIWA and wikis jumping ship from Wikia (as you know). "Porplemontage Enterprises" is just what I decided to call my collection of wikis since I wanted something like a portfolio to throw up on my website. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:32, 20 August 2011 (EDT)

Please, don't erase the article named Wario enemies! I know that there exist a category about this, but I want to make an article! -- Super Radio 07:47, 21 January 2012 (EST)

Minor question.

Did you updated the wiki? Looks like the parameter cellspacing of the tables isn't working (unfortunately, that's the only error I've seen for now) and the galleries are no longer centered... do we have to center the galleries manually? Another question: why the collapsible boxes of my userpage doen't work? well, they do work only when I log in but not if I log out... is it posible to fix that? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

I don't know why cellspacing wouldn't be working now; maybe you could link me to an example on that? The galleries would need the center tag to be centered, see Gallery:Super Mario Galaxy 2 vs. Gallery:Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. I fixed your collapsible stuff; it was a matter of clearing the cache for that page. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:47, 22 August 2011 (EDT)

Oh, wait... I think I see the problem of the cellspacing. It seems that the thumbnail thing of the images inside the tables show them like that. No problem, I'll fix it myself and as for the collapsible tables in my userpage, thanks. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Userpage help

Hi, I'm Pichi-Hime6, I just became Autoconfirmed yesterday,
and I would like some help with my userpage. I have no idea how
to edit it, upload a picture, create a userebox tower, ect.
I've tried looking on all the Help pages for that stuff, but I
just can't seem to be able to do anything. --That's Bohogos 16:18, 25 September 2011 (EDT)

I couldn't explain a given topic better than the help pages already do. Click on your username, add text, and save. View the source of other userpages for an idea of how to do stuff like userbox towers. The file upload link is in the toolbox on the sidebar, and it's pretty self-explanatory: browse for a file and hit upload. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:39, 25 September 2011 (EDT)

Oh, I finally got my page up. it looks pretty good, actually! Thanks for the tip on viewing the source that was a big help. Now all I need to do is figure out how to make my sig look really cool......... --That's Bohogos 20:06, 10 October 2011 (EDT)

Pop-up Issues

I've been noticing lately that whenever I access the Mario Wiki now, I end up getting a pop-up whenever I attempt to log on. Can you do something about that? RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 10:43, 16 October 2011 (EDT)

This thing? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:07, 18 October 2011 (EDT)

Personal images

Personal images needs to be renamed into Personal files (because of ogg being allowed on this wiki). I'll let you decide, but here's the list of the pages that uses this phase:


Or we could just say "No personal ogg files." This isn't exactly a priority of mine right now. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:04, 20 October 2011 (EDT)


Hey, I was wondering, how do you create a non-Wikia wiki and put it in the NIWA? I want to create a Yoshi Wiki. PikaSamus (talk)

Please answer. PikaSamus (talk)

You need to buy a domain name, acquire web hosting, and install MediaWiki. Google search those three things and you'll have more than enough info to get started. Once your wiki has been around for a while with a healthy set of editors, you may apply to NIWA. Since this wiki covers Yoshi, I will have the final say on whether you may join. So you might want to get on my good side. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:02, 26 October 2011 (EDT)

Maintenance Issue

  • Sorry to bother you, but there's a problem that I found while checking the list of double redirects. I saw that the 8-bit Club redirects to 8 bits, which redirects to 8 Bits, but for some reason, whenever I try to fix up the 8-bit Club redirect, the wiki acts like that article doesn't exist. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 08:07, 27 October 2011 (EDT)
Should be good now. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:33, 27 October 2011 (EDT)

Preview thumbnail images

Hello Steve. Is there a way to turn off seeing the preview thumbnail images that appear in the image page? For instance, whenever I go into an image page like this, I can see a set of preview images at the bottom. Is there any way I can disable them? --RAP.pngRAP... 05:35, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

The file history thumbnails? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:40, 30 October 2011 (EDT)
Yes. --RAP.pngRAP... 05:45, 30 October 2011 (EDT)
The best you could do is hide them with CSS such as
table.filehistory img {
	display: none;

--Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:49, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

No way to make the option user-friendly? It would be useful to those who don't want to waste bandwidth due to bandwidth caps. Anyway, gonna plug this thing. --RAP.pngRAP... 05:52, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

The hidden image will probably still be downloaded; the CSS is just hiding it. I don't think those little thumbs are killing anyone bandwidth-wise. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 06:05, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

How can you tell Steve? --RAP.pngRAP... 06:08, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

They are about 20 KB each on that page. I hope you don't accidentally click on the 5.44MB image, since it's equivalent to 278 of those 20KB thumbnails. You visit more image pages than anyone else. It's not something a general user would need. We have a small percentage of users who visit a ton of image pages time a small percentage of users who even have to worry about bandwidth times the fact that the thumbs are small to begin with. And you better use them to compare images since if you click on an image you're throwing any bandwidth savings from hiding the thumbnails out the window. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 06:21, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

Probably not so - since I'm not an admin anymore, I can't really delete those duplicate images (assuming that most of them are duplicates). Seriously, 278 thumbnails? With the stuff you said, you observe all that data with Google Analytics? --RAP.pngRAP... 06:53, 30 October 2011 (EDT)
No, just division. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:37, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

Double Redirect (again)

Ok, because it's in the userspace. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:25, 1 November 2011 (EDT)

{{Italic title}}

Is this useful? Mario & Luigi

It's useful if we italicize page titles, but last I checked we don't do that. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:35, 1 November 2011 (EDT)

Broken Redirects

  • I recently ran into a good deal of redirects that are broken, but they require Sysop assistance to fix. The broken redirects seem to be related to the double redirect issue that I told you about earlier; the one relating to Chris Helper's user page sub-pages. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 07:53, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
It's because you can't edit his userspace. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:20, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
I'm aware of that, which is why I asked you to handle that request. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 08:17, 3 November 2011 (EDT)
Next time just say it's in the userspace. Calling it a "double redirect issue" makes it sound like an actual problem. It's expected that you can't edit his userspace. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:16, 3 November 2011 (EDT)

Template:Foreign names

Hello Porplemontage. Nintendo of Europe confirmed Mario Kart 7 will get a Dutch, Portuguese and Russian translation. These three languages need to be put in the Template:Foreign names. Dutch and Portuguese are already in the template, but Russian isn't. Because you protected the page it's impossible for me to edit it (I'm a patroller). Could you please add Russian to the template? Could you also change the order, so Portuguese comes behind Italian and Russian behind Portuguese? Thank you.

Sonic the Hedgehog characters external links

Hi, I noticed that all of the Sonic characters' pages have external links to SonicRetro. The Sonic Wikia has more information on these subjects, so I think we should change the link to that website. Is that okay?

Cream's page

Okay, so I wanted to give Cream an infobox like everyone else has. You know, like Full Name: Cream the Rabbit
First Appearance: Sonic Advanced 2 (GBA) And that kind of stuff, but she has two pics on her page and I don't know where I'm supposed to put the one I'm not using as her Infobox image. I don't want to remove either of them, but do I really need to make a gallery for only 2 pics? And if not, where do I put the other one?

Question about the forums

I recently joined the forum and have a question about profanity. How do the Super Mario Boards handle swearing? Are there auto-censors? Good Magikrazy (talk)

Yep, profanities will be censored unless you decide to turn off the censor in your settings. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:27, 20 January 2012 (EST)
The problem with auto-censors is that sometimes they censor even words that contain swear words. Good Magikrazy (talk)

Admin Discussion

Hey Porplemontage, the admins have been discussing something and we'd like you to weigh in. This is where the important part of the conversation starts. Thanks! - Walkazo 19:31, 21 January 2012 (EST)


Hello Steve! We've never met before. Hi! I'm YoshiKong! I'm just wonderng, what is a Monobook? I did ask Phoenix, but he wasn't quite sure and he refered me to you.

Hey, Steve!

I have more than two problems with the auto-censors on the forums.

1. I can't find where to turn them off. 2. They won't let me talk about Cofagrigus, a Pokemon from the new game.

I checked the settings and nothing about the censor showed up. So how do I change the settings of the censors? Good Magikrazy (talk)

It's under Modify Profile -> Look and Layout. Talk to the admins about removing the wildcards and making a rule not to merge swear words. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:48, 22 January 2012 (EST)


Wow, after 4 years I just realized you had all platforms (something I think a true gamer requires). You are REALLY admirable. Just a curious question, what game series do you most often play on The Playstation and Xbox? And how often?

Thumbnail images in lists...part 2.

Hi Steve/Porplemontage, remembered I asked you the last time if there was a way to disable viewing/seeing thumbnail images whenever I go into file pages, and you provided me coding for my monobook? I really appreciated that nod, leaving me to do my productivity faster (without having my browser lagging from the brief image's minor, but very irritating when I try working very fast); now I'm asking you again. Recently, it seems you guys have updated your wiki, and when I went to Special:ListFiles, there are thumbnail images - is there any code that would disable viewing thumbnail images from those special pages? It hampers my work just as the same as the previous one I told you. The main difference is that you have to scroll down longer to scan for stuff, even with Ctrl+F. Thanks. --RAP.pngRAP... 01:08, 19 February 2012 (EST)

.TablePager_col_thumb img {
	display: none;

Try that. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 03:10, 19 February 2012 (EST)

Cool, it works! But hmm, it appears it doesn't outright remove the images at all, it just hides it. Checking through Google Chrone's developer tools, it appears I'm getting the data regardless if it is hidden away or not. Is there any way to truly stop it? --RAP.pngRAP... 03:25, 19 February 2012 (EST)
Not that I know of. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 03:26, 19 February 2012 (EST)
You sure? Well, alright. Thanks anyway for your help. By the way, would you mind providing me info on modifying monobooks or anything that has to do with skins (with a link per say)? I'm interested in tweaking around it for NintendoWiki. --RAP.pngRAP... 03:31, 19 February 2012 (EST)
I don't have any links. The best thing you can do is inspect the page and play around with the CSS using those dev tools. That's all I did to get the name of that "TablePager_col_thumb" class. Then try-out the CSS in those tools and you can mess around without actually making any changes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 04:40, 19 February 2012 (EST)

Hello, I am Bullet, known as Starphoria on NIWA, Starfy Wiki Staff, and Icaruspedia and F-Zero Wiki Staff. I'd like to report that user for stalking. After I declined his request to help him with a site, because I was busy at the time, he proceeded to stalk me everywhere, and harass me. I ask kindly you ban this user. He has already gone to Icaruspedia, and I do not want him coming here as he is stalking me. [2] --Bullet 18:47, 7 March 2012 (EST)

When viewing the site on a tablet an advertisement pop-up opens on a background tab, and creates an annoying message on top of the screen, can you do something about that? Pop-ups in general are annoying, by the way. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 16:57, 16 March 2012 (EDT)

Yeah, the pop-up is part of our current advertising strategy. Guests get one and then are free from it for 12 hours. I'm going to try something else without it, but the guaranteed way to avoid it would be to login on the tablet if that's an option for you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:35, 16 March 2012 (EDT)

Hello Porple! We have all noticed that the {{Aboutfile}} syntax automatically appears when uploading files, and I think it's a great idea! But not all users format the template correctly, and it ends up looking like this (that upload was intentional, by the way). Users have to go through Recent Uploads to check for incorrectly used templates. I think we should create a template to remind users to use it correctly, and to teach them how to if they don't know already. I've created a draft at User:YoshiKong/aboutfile-reminder. Just tell me what you think of it, and maybe it can become an official notice...?

Sounds good to me; perhaps make the template a little less-wordy. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 12:25, 26 April 2012 (EDT)

Undeleting issues

Hey Porplemontage, you probably already noticed this (or read this post about it), but deleted page histories don't seem to be accessible anymore: yesterday, anything deleted before the 19th was empty, and today the histories don't even seem to remain after 24 hours. It's a bit alarming... - Walkazo 21:00, 28 April 2012 (EDT)

It's ok, I deleted that stuff. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:37, 28 April 2012 (EDT)

It seems I (and indeed, other admins) have the same problem as Walkazo. While I can view/undelete anything deleted in the past 24 hours just fine (such as this page), it seems anything that has been deleted longer than that (like this) can't be viewed or restored - the prompt say there's no page history and clicking "view/restore" doesn't do anything. Is that an intentional change? --Glowsquid 22:24, 28 April 2012 (EDT)

Yes, just a cleanse of deleted stuff. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:26, 28 April 2012 (EDT)

Hey, Porplemontage my brother originally had an account called Spiny thrown' lakitu we thought because of a computer crash Spiny thrown' lakitu was erased, to find out we were only spelling it wrong to log on.

We would ask if you would erase Spiny thrown' lakitu because it is only an empty talk page and we made a new account for him.

Good Day, people of the U.S. Mario Wiki

I came in name of the Italian and German MarioWikis. We would like to propose you an Interwiki partnership with other wikis.

The Italian one, in which I am an administrator, is just a newborn wiki. It started many years ago in the Wikia server, but it was so full of vandals, stubs and bull***t that we decided to move to another server, sadly canceling all our 3000 articles. The old wiki still exists, but it's unactive. Today we only have 320 articles, but we're growing.

Waiting for an answer, --What's my name? (talk) 01:46, 26 July 2012 (EDT)
