A new namespace?

Hello there! I still see here on the wiki some forum comments on game articles' respective talk pages. Instead of forcing to join the forums, I suggest the creation of a new namespace called "Game talk" where users who don't have a forum account or are forbidden to create one can talk about recently released and old games, freely. I think it would be a nice alternative to non-forum users. Waiting for an answer soon! --NewSMBU (talk) 07:29, 8 August 2012 (EDT)

Interesting idea, but the focus of the wiki should always be the encyclopedia. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:26, 8 August 2012 (EDT)
Thanks anyways. --NewSMBU (talk) 11:41, 8 August 2012 (EDT)

how do you block someone? Annieflower678 called me stupid Spenzer66

Only administrators can block people. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:31, 18 August 2012 (EDT)
Already taken care of. Not sure if the block length should be extended or left as one month... Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC

Aboutfile made default in upload summary


I run another wiki (PidgiWiki, a catalog of video game artwork), and I've been trying to figure out how to make an information template default in the upload summary, as is done here with {{aboutfile}}. Is this possible by simply editing MediaWiki files, or is there custom code at work? Would you mind sharing how to do this? Thank you so much!--Immewnity (talk) 11:44, 26 August 2012 (EDT)

It's done through JavaScript here. You can see the code in the bottom-half of MediaWiki:Common.js and apply it to your own MediaWiki:Common.js. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:49, 26 August 2012 (EDT)
Alright, cool. Thank you!--Immewnity (talk) 12:01, 26 August 2012 (EDT)

Dutch Mario Wiki

Hey Porple, i want to make a dutch Mario Wiki. Not via wikia but powered by Media Wiki, like this website and the german and italian version. You created the english version so maybe you can help me. I'd like to ask you're help. And i'll ask the questions later. Thanks for listening. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 15:55, 26 August 2012 (EDT)

Ok. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:43, 26 August 2012 (EDT)

My questions are:

  • 1. Does it costs for the wiki? (Without forum)
  • 2. How do i make the site? (Powered by MediaWiki, like this wiki)
  • 3. If i make the site, can i take this background for my wiki?

Thanks for listening. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 09:41, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

1) Yes, you would have to pay for web hosting and a domain. 2) Once you have hosting with PHP and a MySQL database, all you have to do is install MediaWiki. 3) I'd prefer that you come up with your own variation of images. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 09:59, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Is there one without paying but powered by media wiki? AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 10:43, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

There are wiki farms, but I would only promote independent wikis. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:56, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Oh man, i don't want to pay it but i want that it's good. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 10:57, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

If you manage to get Google advertisements on the Wiki, you will find no reason to pay as the advertisements will do it for you. I'm not sure how it works though, I just know it's possible. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 15:39, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Rollback status

Hi Porplemontage, I know it's not done this way, but I was hoping I could be privileged of having rollback status on this Wiki. I think I've been on long enough, and while there was a big gap in between my edits, it would still be nice to receive this. Don't worry, I'm not going to ask for Admin rights next, definitely not, but having this makes me feel I've got somewhere on MarioWiki. I hope you agree, JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan

We don't have a rollbacker group; the closest thing is patroller. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:43, 26 August 2012 (EDT)
Well, I would just like the lowest ranking membership after Autoconfirmed users. Thanks, JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 02:23, 27 August 2012 (EDT)
I don't promote people. The bureaucrats promote the most talented users only when it's deemed necessary. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:34, 27 August 2012 (EDT)
Ok, I understand, thank you for your time anyways, JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 02:43, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

New Start

Hey Porple, i readed the MW:FAQ about how to be an admin. I'm not here to ask you admin or bureaucrat powers. That's not the point at all. Or an new account is neither the point. My point is, i saw my edits. MASS of USER edits. I want to make a new start, ALOT of more main and ALOT of LESS user edits. Can i restart? Because it's my dream to be an admin. (The words that are cappalized is ment as an importnant word.) AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 15:30, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

You don't need to ask anyone to restart... just do it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:30, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

P.S. you can add this on languages: . This is the dutch Mario Wiki. That soon will be cleared. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 17:00, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

I think it has to prove sustainable for a while and have a decent amount of articles. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:15, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Ok, i will ask it sooner again. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 17:30, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Hey, the work on the dutch wiki goes fast. It will be soon cleared. P.S. can i borrow some information from this wiki and translate it to dutch? And what whas the URL from the sidebar logo and notice. I wont copy but i want to change it of my wiki. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 11:40, 28 August 2012 (EDT)

If you borrow info you have to provide a link back to the source. MediaWiki:Sidebar, MediaWiki:Sidebar-logo, MediaWiki:Sitenotice... --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:52, 28 August 2012 (EDT)

How do i add more groups? AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 15:48, 28 August 2012 (EDT)

I am not Wikkii; direct your technical questions to them. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:10, 28 August 2012 (EDT)

Sorry to bother you–can you please hide the previous edit so that no one will get trapped? I heard from GreenD that the site described is full of viruses. --NewSMBU (talk) 15:22, 29 August 2012 (EDT)

How come you don't have a high rank? You should, considering you CREATED THE ENTIRE WIKI and know a whole lot about it. Marioart8.pngLuigiBlubberLuigihattip.png

Error in a video file

Hey Porple. I have recently uploaded File:WL4-Opening Cut-Scene.OGG. The file type is OGG's multimedia format, and it plays fine on my computer, but it seems to have an error when uploaded here. If you are familiar with video files, do you know what's wrong with it? Thanks.

On one hand it seems unofficial/arbitrary, but it may be useful for some people to have that info in one place. When I don't feel strongly either way, I tell people to ask around/do a proposal. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:09, 26 September 2012 (EDT)


Do you know how you can get like a higher rank on the Mario Wiki? I've heard there was Administrators on the wiki that do some special things.

Here you go. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:36, 25 October 2012 (EDT)

Game Title Italicizing

Yeah, Porplemontage; just noticed that you created the template to italicize game names in main articles themselves. Since when did this come into play? Just curious about that so that I or others on staff don't "overrule" edits made using this template by mistake. --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Fan! User Page | Talk Page 02:05, 31 October 2012 (EDT)

Color loss

Hi. When re-uploading large images, I've noticed that sometimes the images lose it's color. A good example is where I reverted the Nintendo logo to a larger version, but once I had done so, the color was completely washed out. However, the full view of the image is perfectly fine. What's up with that? Please help because I tried to revert the Nintendo logo back to the smaller version, hoping that the color will return to normal, but it didn't.

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 04:01, 1 December 2012 (EST)

It looks like our newer version of ImageMagick is blending more of the white with the gray. For alternatives, this SVG file works and my latest, smaller file works. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 04:39, 1 December 2012 (EST)

Okay, it's good that yours works But is it safe to revert it to the larger one? If not, I'm sure the smaller one will do for now.

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 04:41, 1 December 2012 (EST)

You know what, there was something about your version(s) of the image it didn't like. I uploaded a super-large new version and the color is fine. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 04:49, 1 December 2012 (EST)

Cool, all sorted out. Have a merry Christmas!

Forum account

Hey Porple. Ever since my username was moved from Resident Knife to Knife, I haven't been able to log in. I assume the password is that same for both usernames, yet the forum says that the password is incorrect. I tried recovering my password from my e-mail (although I'm pretty sure I know what the password is), but haven't received the e-mail yet. Bear in mind, I did this almost a week ago and nothing has shown up in my inbox.

What should I do to get access back to my account? I know the software won't let you see what my password is, but maybe we can first try moving the username back to Resident Knife and seeing if I have access from there. Thanks.--Knife (talk) 10:12, 1 December 2012 (EST)

A new password is emailed when the username is changed. I can manually change the password to something else and email it to you. Let me know where to send it or add an email address to your wiki account and I'll use the email user feature. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:25, 1 December 2012 (EST)

Alright, I added an e-mail address to my wiki account. Send the password there, it should work.--Knife (talk) 11:17, 2 December 2012 (EST)

Make sure it's authenticated and you checked "Enable e-mail from other users" because you still don't have an email link. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:42, 2 December 2012 (EST)

I tried authenticating it, but no e-mail either. I think my inbox hates this site for some reason. My e-mail is visible to me though, I just didn't know if you had the ability to see it as well. Anyway, I'll just go ahead and type out my e-mail here. I'm not concerned with keeping it private, so no worries.

Send your e-mail to Thanks.--Knife (talk) 12:51, 3 December 2012 (EST)

Sent. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:55, 3 December 2012 (EST)

Thanks, you're the best. I think I know what the problem was. When I changed my password, it required a password 8 characters or more. My old password had less characters than that, so maybe it's Simplemachine's way of forcing me to conform to the new character requirement and was enforced when my name was changed. Shows how old my account is...--Knife (talk) 11:51, 4 December 2012 (EST)

Hello Porplemontage

I have a suggestion. You can see the Wiki toolbar above the editing window in Wikipedia, right?

I know we have one like that.. but why don't you add more buttons like Wikipedia. are you agreed?

User:MegadarderyUser talk:MegadarderyDashbot.png
You know we could do that; I'll think about it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:41, 3 December 2012 (EST)

About the recent changes

I've just noticed that edit times displayed in the Recent Changes are based on EST rather than GMT (at least they are on my computer; I'm not sure if the EST display shows up for everyone regardless of time zone). I was just curious as to whether that has or is intended to have any effect on proposals ending at times based on GMT. Mario4Ever

EST is just the new default. You can change it back if you'd like; it doesn't affect proposals. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:59, 24 December 2012 (EST)


Hi again porple, there is something wrong with the webchat. When i go to the home page of the wiki, i press Wiki Chat, but there is a problem. The chat is too tiny. Earlier (few days), it was bigger, i liked that more. Could you please fix that? AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 17:13, 25 December 2012 (EST)

What browser are you using? Can you take a screenshot? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:16, 25 December 2012 (EST)

I'm using Google Chrome. It was bigger a few days ago. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 17:21, 25 December 2012 (EST)

What's your monitor resolution? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:22, 25 December 2012 (EST)

You mean how big is my screen? AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 17:23, 25 December 2012 (EST)

I mean... this. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:27, 25 December 2012 (EST)

Uhhh... i don't know actually. But another user also said it was smaller to him. So i don't think it's only to me. I think that's to everybody who goes to the chat via that way. AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 17:30, 25 December 2012 (EST)

A few people have come in lately with the same comment of chat being smaller. I went to look for myself and noticed the size of the window change as my page was loading: [1] and [2] . My screen is 1440x900 and I was on Firefox. - Hypnotoad (T|C) HypnotoadSig.gif 17:37, 25 December 2012 (EST)

The height now adjusts based on your screen resolution and the chat was actually much larger for me. But I'm setting a minimum height of the old fixed height so it doesn't mess up on smaller resolutions. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:41, 25 December 2012 (EST)

What's with the edit window?

Since you changed the toolbar i can't

  • Undo or Redo
  • When pasting text from other windows it is copied with it's font(not the editing font)
  • I Used to press [alt + p] to preview the article but it is changed now. could you revert it back?

Sorry for being six days late. What would you recommand? Mac OS X perhaps? That'd be the first time I've ever used it. Oh, and I've seen in videos that they make their MediaWiki using Firefox, but they were hasty so I couldn't understand. Yeah, I have Firefox. What's next?--Prince Ludwig (talk) 08:48, 3 February 2013 (EST)

I recommend Linux; Ubuntu should be fine. Ubuntu, Windows, Mac. See how long those pages are? It would be impossible for me to explain it to you in more detail, so just follow those instructions. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:34, 3 February 2013 (EST)

I recently checked these links now, the localhost links don't work on the Ubuntu and Mac OS X manuals. Windows had only one link that works.[4] These links seem to be for installing the MediaWiki into the server. Right?--Prince Ludwig (talk) 12:57, 19 April 2013 (EDT)

Yeah. So just point the browser to wherever Apache (or whatever you're using) has the files. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:06, 19 April 2013 (EDT)

That was a cost-benefit analysis for the site, not just me. Extensions can cause issues and must be supported, so they should to provide a significant benefit to the site to be considered for installation. Most people don't peruse categories, but even if you do, it's still possible without the extension—just slightly less convenient. With that said, your proposal will be added to the record and may be referenced in any future considerations of installing said extension. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:43, 13 March 2013 (EDT)

I was wondering if you ever considered to perhaps have a video game wiki as a part of NIWA. Just a suggestion to improve it. There is my Video Game Wiki here in case you're interested in making one. I thought it would be about time for a video game wiki with its own URL. 12:38, 10 April 2013 (EDT)

I like the idea, but I worry that there are too many well-established series wikis at this point for such a wiki to take-off. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:57, 10 April 2013 (EDT)
It could alternatively be different from NIWA and instead be an ally like Wikisimpsons. 17:44, 10 April 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, sure. I don't run NIWA so you'd have to ask those guys. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:15, 10 April 2013 (EDT)
Also, the video game wiki does mention all topics on video games itself. This means that it is a wiki focusing on all video games. This means that it has articles for the ZX Spectrum, Atari 5200. No unique URL-related wiki has that. Unique URLs mean sites like instead of That's what I mean. It would be nice to have the video game wiki turned into an independent URL wiki. 21:18, 10 April 2013 (EDT)
So, would it be okay to have a video game wiki with a unique URL? 11:44, 11 April 2013 (EDT)
Sure, you don't need my permission to do it. NIWA as an organization doesn't create wikis; individuals create them and ask to join. So it would be up to you to create it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:08, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

I hope you're okay with this, but I made a Mario Wiki of my own here. It's licensed under the GFDL 1.2, so feel free to take anything from there, but try not to take too much :). Anyway, I hope you're okay with another Mario Wiki made for the purpose of having a different style from this wiki. It does have the same name as's Mariopedia, but ShoutWiki is a more decent wiki farm. I was just checking if you were okay with this. 22:53, 18 April 2013 (EDT)

You know that Funky person, the M&A director for The 'Shroom? He is saying I sockpuppeted on the wiki/forum so he kicked me off the team (I don't recall sockpuppeting. Also, my IP address that starts with a 9 is a school IP address, but if the "sockpuppet" has my other IP address, that was indeed me).

18:15, 29 August 2013 (EDT)


Could MediaWiki:Uploadtext be updated and something about the aboutfile template be appended in it..


*The text that appeared below is the preloaded code of the {{tem|Aboutfile}} Template, It contains five variables (five lines). It should either be formatted correctly, or removed before uploading.
**If you insert the information, be sure to replace the whole variable (but not the "<code>|</code>" and the number) including the squared brackets, so "<code>[insert info here]</code>" becomes "<code>This is the inserted information</code>", not "<code>[This is the inserted information]</code>".
**If you want to exclude a variable, be sure to remove the entire line, don't just leave it as it.

I think the most important part is the first line, as most newbies will click the template and read about it (but I'm not sure).

Thanks. Lakituthequick said that the text won't show up if the user has selected a different language than English, I decided to contact you because of that.--

Another Request please: could the MediaWiki:Common.js be updated so the default upload description only show if the file isn't being reuploaded: This can be done by changing:

if (mw.config.get('wgCanonicalSpecialPageName') === 'Upload')


if (mw.config.get('wgCanonicalSpecialPageName') === 'Upload' && !document.getElementById ('wpForReUpload'))

Thanks for the tip. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:28, 4 September 2013 (EDT)
Also, I cannot see the thumbnails in the Special:Upload after selecting a file.. Did you mean that? or was that an accident? Thanks sorry to disturb you so much--

While we still taking about uploading issues, just asking is the warning when uploading file similar in name with another file really necessary? (When File:Example.png with File:Example.jpg already exists) Because it is really interrupt me while uploading replacements--

Is this a bug, or what?

I just looked at Special:Log/newusers to see that the account Sockpuppet was created

06:46, September 6, 2013 User account Sockpuppet (talk | contribs) was created.

As soon as I looked at his account I saw this:

This user is currently blocked. The latest block log entry is provided below for reference:

I can't understand that--

Great job

I would just like to say “Thanks” for starting the Mario Wiki. You are the best founder in the world. From the perfect Administrators to the perfect balance with the pages, you help the wiki be whole. Thanks!!!!!

Maintenance Categories

Could Maintenance categories be marked with __HIDDENCAT__ so they do not appear in the categories bar or should I bring that in MarioWiki:Proposals?--

I have no strong feelings one way or the other, so you can do a proposal if you want. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:59, 28 September 2013 (EDT)
Thanks, I will make a list of categories and probably make a proposal very soon.--

Big Proposal.

Hello there Porple. I have a rather large matter that I've been meaning to ask one of the head honchos of Super Mario Wiki. Has the following thought ever occurred to you? Redoing the Super Mario Wiki homepage? I'm no business man, but I don't see how it could result in spending money. I think a simpler (but still as complex as we're used to), less bland, and a GRAND remake would be great! If this interests you, we could communicate over Google Drive and show each other our ideas via applications like Power Point. I know this sounds crazy, but please at least consider it. I think this grand do-over would fit perfectly in January 2014! Thank you for creating this marvelous wiki and reading my request/recommendation. Stickers4U.pngStickers4U (talk)

Just create a mockup on a user subpage and show it to me. I'm open to changes, but it doesn't have to be a big formal thing. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:36, 13 October 2013 (EDT)

Thanks Steve. I'll begin right away! Here's a beta of the new main icon (it'll be up soon!):

Auto-refresh button in Recent Changes

Could the AUTO-REFRESH button in Recent Changes be by default enabled?--

User:MegadarderyUser talk:MegadarderyDashbot.png

16:59, 14 October 2013 (EDT)

No, it should be opt-in. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:14, 14 October 2013 (EDT)

Vector Main page screen suggestion

I made a small design different especially for the vector theme for the main menu. What do you think about it? It changes the boxes titles to a more like a 3D button. and some minor changing (the background isn't going to be implemented in the main page, it is just my theme).. Here is the image and the css coding is found under test here.--

Question (Section 100 ooh)

Do you know how to not leave a redirect when moving a file? Can only admins do that? OrangeYoshiTTYD.png Me, GK Inc.!Gonzales Mario Kart.png(talk! · edits!) {{{1}}} 10:45, 24 October 2013 (EDT)

Yes, it's an admin thing. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:20, 24 October 2013 (EDT)
Ok, I just wondered cuz' it's kinda annoying moving files, then marking the redirects with {{delete}}. OrangeYoshiTTYD.png Me, GK Inc.!Gonzales Mario Kart.png(talk! · edits!) {{{1}}} 16:22, 24 October 2013 (EDT)
