Chat

what do i do if i think an OP should be De-Oped "Alpha"

You can message another op on the chat and make your case. You can send me a PM on the forum if you'd like to provide a few more details on this. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:02, 2 January 2008 (EST)

how bout Aim? "Alpha

I won't be on AIM tonight. You can email me if it can't wait until tomorrow. Otherwise, I'll be in chat tomorrow too. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:10, 2 January 2008 (EST)

I sent it and it is urgent 'Alpha"

GJ

This is what the Old One told me:
You must travel for three days and three nights with no food, water or provisions through the Argonne Forest. After such a journey, you shall come upon a monument to the great Shroom of Argonne. You must climb to the top of said monument and meditate for a further three days. After which, the long lost name of the Almighty ShroomKing of Argonne shall be revealed to you. Take a shard of the great rock and carve the name in your flesh. You will then have the power to de-op ONE op of your choosing by calling out the ancient spell of Doomhammer:
"I. AM. OVERSENSITIVE TO MATTERS THAT PERTAIN TO ME NOT!."
Thus, it shall be done. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 00:07, 2 January 2008 (EST)

Wayoshi

That guy can't be trusted, he is making like 10 spam accounts on userpedia. We don't have definite proof, but even if it isn't him, he still can't be trusted! HyperToad He also impersonated Alphaclaw!

I don't have jurisdiction over what he does on other websites. If there have been any recent problems with him on the MarioWiki or chat, let me know. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:54, 3 January 2008 (EST)
Just to cleanup on the matter: it was Dummmmmmmy, or however many m's there are. The Alpha thing was a small joke. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 15:54, 3 January 2008 (EST)

Great Game

Super Mario 64 is a great game! It's the first Mario game I ever got to play! I'm waiting to play Super Mario Galaxy; I've heard it's really good too. — Stooben Rooben I've got a third link on my sig!

Agreed. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 03:30, 5 January 2008 (EST)

Userpedia Closing

I haeard something about the sysops are in a disscussion about closing Userpedia. An answer should be; I thought we created Userpedia for a reason. Didn't we create it because we were getting too distracting with sprite comics and such? Well it will happen again if we close Userpedia. GrodenE T C El Or was it just a rumor Wayoshi spread -_-'

I have no idea. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 03:30, 5 January 2008 (EST)
Steve has no connections with Userpedia. It was made by Xzelion and Sadaharu. 3dhammer.gif 3D, AAAAAARH 3dhammer.gif
It's impossible to close Userpedia, sysops here basically aren't sysops there. It's my personal opinion. Minimario here says sprite comics were too distracting, and the problem's fixed by moving them to another wiki. Guess what, Mini-M? Userpedia is sucking people away from this wiki because it continues to be even more distracting. That's why I want it closed. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 09:19, 5 January 2008 (EST)
You can't close Userpedia just 'cause people are over there more than here. They have a right to be on what sight they want to. If they're neglecting the wiki that's their problems. I spend more time here than there and even I think that's unfair. You wouldn't like it if it were the other way around, would you? I'm not trying to be rude, but I don't see a reason to shut down a site just because some people like it more than here. — Stooben Rooben Sorry if I offended someone.

Thanks

I just wanna thank you for making the MarioWiki. I'd probably be bored every night if you hadn't! — Stooben Rooben Was that silly?

Glad to hear it! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:06, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Who's Online

How did you set up that Who's Online Wiki Extension?MPWLBWDL.jpg~Μαριοθανικαλ 02:19, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Oh you're online! Why won't you answer me?MPWBWDLR.jpg~Μαριοθανικαλ 15:29, 6 January 2008 (EST)

I don't know. I did whatever the instructions for it said to do. That usually involves adding some files to the extensions directory and adding a line to LocalSettings.php. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:34, 6 January 2008 (EST)
Oh great. I still don't know how to install it into the my website. Boo hoo.MPWBWDLR.jpg~Μαριοθανικαλ 15:37, 6 January 2008 (EST)

MySpace Links

Hey Porplemontage, not to be a tattletale but Dummmmmmy has a link to his MySpace page on his userpage. Is that allowed? - Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman 18:48, 6 January 2008 (PT)

Yes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:55, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Wayoshi SPAMMED..

Hey Porplemontage, Wayoshi said d*** in the chat room!! That's spam, right? Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

[16:13] ChaosNinji: It cofirmed Falcon, Jigglypuff, and the Animal Crosser!
[16:13] ParaChomp: who spamed
[16:13] Glitchman: Who's Alloy Team?
[16:13] ChaosNinji: Smash Bros update.
[16:13] Wayoshi: it didn't confirm a damn thing.
[16:13] Glitchman: ParaChomp spammed
[16:13] ChaosNinji: :roll:
[16:13] Glitchman: Wayoshi spammed
Wayoshi didn't do anything wrong. Your "X spammed" comments were more disruptive. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:09, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Oh, sorry. I just thought cursing wasn't allowed. - Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

I'm glad that you came to me when you thought someone was breaking the rules. I personally don't have a problem if "damn" is used as long as it's not directed at another user, obviously. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:25, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Comic's Done

Hey PM, just wanted to let you know that my comic is done, and I don't know if you checked or not but you were portrayed as the sysop, Toad. However, I'm not going to post the fact that the comic's done on my user page until you and all of the other users involved in the comic have left positive feedback (approval for being in the comic, basically) on my (or your) talk page. Reply ASAP, and feel free to use any of the sprites whenever! Oh, and by the way, sorry about the above comment. I really didn't know, sorry to have been a disturbance.

- Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

I approve of the comic. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:25, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Questions

Sorry if this is an annoying question or if I'm wasting your time here, but do you happen to own Both the 360 & Halo 3?, Also is it possible to block an Ip using a wildcard (like how it can be performed on the forums) Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC

Why are you asking about Halo? This is the second time I've been asked that question so I find it kind of odd. Yes, I own a 360 and Halo 3. I've never seen anything about blocking wildcards with MediaWiki, so my guess would be no, but I've never actually tried it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:49, 11 January 2008 (EST)

Do you know why the wiki is slow and experiences so many problems? Is it from the amount of users on-line?Geno Whirl

More or less, yeah. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:28, 28 January 2008 (EST)

I can't

I can't access the Director election, it says is a database error, or it is in bold. Xpike the hedgehog

Multi Upload

I tried uploading multiple images on the special page for it and changed the name for the files, but the page ignored it and uploaded the images under the name they had on my hard drive. Can this problem be fixed? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 04:14, 21 January 2008 (EST)

Hey it worked for me. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:29, 21 January 2008 (EST)
I used Special:MultipleUpload, and entered new names which had a space. Then, I got to a page which told me that the spaces got changed to underscores, and asked me if I still wanted to store the pictures. I clicked save, and the pictures were uploaded, but not under the new names but the old ones from my harddisk. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:32, 21 January 2008 (EST)

Hey there Steve. When uploading 14 audio files for SMG just now, I forgot to ignore all warnings, since they were way oversized, and again the rename issue popped up. I'm not going to redo it again, being the big files they are, but it is slightly annoying. Any way to fix it? Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 13:34, 3 February 2008 (EST)

No. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:27, 3 February 2008 (EST)

My Purpose Is My Username

Since Dark Toad and I are the same person(Seriously, why would my userpage just be a link to his page and a sentence to go with it), and I only created this account because I forgot my password for my Dark Toad account, and I want to have my username for the Dark Toad account changed back to KP Shadow-Informant

You can use the account on the MarioWiki:Changing username page to have it changed. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:09, 27 January 2008 (EST)

What about my password for the Dark Toad/KP Shadow account? I need the password so I can log back in as Dark Toad/KP Shadow, otherwise my Dark Toad/KP Shadow account will be deleted, and I'll have to start all over, and I made 58 contributions total in 2 weeks(yes, 2 weeks, I'm that good) as Dark Toad/KP Shadow. I need that password!!!-Informant

Err I don't know your password. If you signed up with an email address you can have a new one sent to you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:22, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Can you make me a new one and post it on my talk page-Informant

I can't do that. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:55, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Thanks for getting rid of the Curcuit City ads-Informant

I didn't. Well, maybe. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:43, 13 February 2008 (EST)

There is a server upgrade on the way which should help us out. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:32, 30 January 2008 (EST)

Promblems

I sometimes have problems logging in to the wiki and is it because of a dead server or something?F gLarrynana.gif

What problems do you experience? I don't see the issue. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:54, 1 February 2008 (EST)

Whenever I logged on to this wiki sometimes it would say that the wiki is experiencing some problems , page cannot be displayed, etc. or is it my computer?F gLarrynana.gif

These were most likely due to some server strains. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:42, 2 February 2008 (EST)

Miscellaneous

Shouldn't there be a Miscellaneous spot for mario knowledge? Because, for example, Fourth wall, I would have never known about it if I didn't check a User's contributions. So I think there should be a link for it on Mario knowledge. Thanks! 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png P.S. This site is awesome! How old are you?

It probably couldn't hurt to have a miscellaneous page, but I think it would end up pretty unorganized and unhelpful. "Fourth Wall" could use a link under Glossary anyway. I'm 17. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:30, 2 February 2008 (EST)

Forum Problems

Porplemontage, I need help!!! I registered myself on the forum a month or so ago, and now I can't sign in again!! And when I tried the "forgot your password" link in case I typed in a wrong password, it said this user didn't have a secret question!! So I figured that my registering must not have worked, so I tried to re-register but it said somebody already had that username! I need to log on in order to PM 3Dejong my Fake News article!! HELP!!

Top Ads

Not only is the new ad line at the top annoying, it is blocking the sitenotice. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 15:48, 6 February 2008 (EST)

The amount of revenue that the site makes off the ads recently plummeted out of nowhere. I don't know why, I don't like the top ad unit either, but this is definitely a predicament for the site. The additional unit is just an attempt to increase revenue. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:17, 6 February 2008 (EST)

Patroller

I'd consider making the user Mr. Guy a Patroller. He's really awesome at editing, reverts spam unseen, gives out warnings to vandals, etc. GrodenE T C El But it's your wiki, so....

Thanks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:35, 6 February 2008 (EST)

Ads problems

could not you remove those ads? seriously, that disturbs hiding the wiki's notices bar. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png why don't you see on Bulbapedia's top ad? it looks more decent.

Exactly. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:40, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Censoring

There's currently an ongoing discussion about whether or not to censor Bob Hoskins's quote on the Super Mario Bros. movie, which reads:

The worst thing I ever did? Super Mario Brothers. It was a fuckin' nightmare. The whole experience was a nightmare. It had a husband-and-wife team directing, whose arrogance had been mistaken for talent. After so many weeks their own agent told them to get off the set! Fuckin' nightmare. Fuckin' idiots.

Would a censoring of the word "fuckin'" go okay with you or are you following Wikipedia's policy of not censoring anything? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:04, 9 February 2008 (EST)

Censoring the word with asterisks or anything similar seems kind of silly. I wouldn't be against leaving out some sentences like in Wikipedia's quote template. Some kind of "See full quote (mature)" show/hide link could be an interesting compromise. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:48, 9 February 2008 (EST)

Confused >Con

Hey Steve. I just wanted to point out that I lost my password for the Confused account and instead made a sockpuppet in the form of the account posting this message. I hope it is okay if I start using this account instead of Confused, because I can't remember my password. I know that you cannot retrieve a password or something like that, but I just want your verification on whether having a sockpuppet for this reason is okay.Con 19:43, 12 February 2008 (EST)

This may be a stupid question but...

I know, this is a dumb question, but how do you make a vertical line in syntax? BTW If you care, your sprites, which used to be a blue bowser, are now a blu ebowser wearing Mario's clothes :S GrodenE T C El

There's no quick syntax for a vertical line. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:09, 14 February 2008 (EST)

German Maio Wiki

Hello, dear English and American friends. I wanted to ask you as an administrator of the German Mariowikis whether we want to work together as partner sides, because our Wiki still in originate is, some information is still absent. We would be glad very much if, we co-operate. Your side is already written down on the German Mariowiki side. --Link1205 10:20, 16 February 2008 (EST)

Sorry for my bad english

I'm leaning towards no because I'm not sure how practical it would be since most of our contributors don't speak German. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:13, 16 February 2008 (EST)

But if somebody gets lost on the side and, actually, German speaks, nevertheless, it would be quite practical thus a small tip to German mariowiki. And so that they know which develops the Mariowiki also into other languages.--Link1205 03:29, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Right now there's an English, German, and Spanish MarioWiki at Wikia. The Spanish and English wikis link to the German site on their sidebar. I want to keep mariowiki.com separate from the Wikia wikis. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 12:39, 17 February 2008 (EST)

adverts

how can you allow those annoying adverts to be a the side, bottom and top of the screen? I just saw one advertising pornographic videos, please have you or one of your snotty sysops do something about this Bigger sid 10:55, 16 February 2008 (EST)

Right. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:13, 16 February 2008 (EST)

Ghost Jam

Ghost Jam recently(Like just a few minutes ago) banned me from using the forum(I have no idea for how long) with the reason of "3 counts of mod baiting and inappropriate language in sig.", I don't remember having inappropriate language in my sig, and I don't even know what he means by "mod baiting", but I don't think there's anything against flaming mods more so than flaming other users in the rules... Well, I'm not sure, since I can't get to them. And I'm not sure how minor it was when it started, but he modified my sig to say things like "Ghost Jam is the best person ever" after I said bad things about him in my sig. </dumb rant> ~Uniju(T-C-E)

You've been trying to push my buttons for several days now. I changed your sig ONCE as part of the joke you started (which included a hint for you to stop), in which you included the use of '@$$hole', minus the obvious censoring. I intended to partially suspend you, but it didn't take for any number of reasons. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:19, 16 February 2008 (EST)
And because I'm not a mod, it's fine for you to push my buttons? And unless stated otherwise(which I have no idea of knowing) only the auto-censored swears should be against the rules, right? Anyway, I don't think Porple wants an immature spam war between a spammer and a spammy sysop on his talk page. ~Uniju(T-C-E)
I don't push your buttons. Every problem that has come between us has been instigated by you. As for your question, we only have two auto-censored swears, but that doesn't make it ok to run around called people assholes, just in the same way it's ok to own a gun, but not ok to run outside and start randomly shooting people.
And don't give me this garbage of what Steve would or would not like. If that mattered, you wouldn't have started the topic here. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:29, 16 February 2008 (EST)
I didn't "start this garbage", I informed him of the fact that I was flaming and you where abusing power. And all you basically said was "He started it!" like a kid trying to get out of being yelled at for punching someone. ._. I'm not saying that I'm NOT just saying "He started it!", but it's weird being in an immature argument like that from someone who's supposedly like twice my age. ~Uniju(T-C-E)
And you're using the "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you!!!!" game that children use. Every time, with very few exceptions, that I try to do my job, you take issue with it, attack me and then, when I say ANYTHING to you, you act like you're the victim and run to daddy for help, very much like you're doing now. You can accuse me of being childish all you want, but you're right up there with me. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 19:44, 16 February 2008 (EST)
I might be acting as immature as you, but I'm a lot younger than you, plus I'm not a mod on the forum, so I have an excuse. :P ~Uniju(T-C-E)Porple is so gonna be ticked when he logs in.
Turning that excuse on it's ear, you being young = having a lot to learn. However, I don't see you learning. In fact, I see you becoming worse. However, of my various weaknesses, my hot head is the worst. I'ma unban you, but lets this be the end of the button pushing. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 20:02, 16 February 2008 (EST)

Look, Uniju, stop teasing GJ just because you know he reacts the best. Go somewhere where it's OK to flame and tease if you want to flame. 3dhammer.gif 3D, I'd suggest X-E Forums, but because of people like Uni, that place got shut down. 3dhammer.gif

I'm wondering if you can do something about this user's name. I find it extremely offensive, and other users might too. I say this only because I'm trying to protect this site and what it's about. I hate being a tattler, but this is an issue I find...disturbing...at the least. Thank you. — Stooben Rooben

User Rename

Is it possible renaming users to names which are already in use by inactive users? Informant (talk) requested a rename to his nick KP Shadow (talk) of which he lost the password for. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 08:49, 29 February 2008 (EST)

I suppose renaming the old username to something else then renaming the current username the old username would work. Obviously only for sockpuppet accounts where you're not renaming someone else's account. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:50, 29 February 2008 (EST)

Ads

Supposedly this is only happening for some people, but at least for me and ChaosNinji(they supposedly prevent him from being able to use MarioWiki's chat applet), the ads are on the left side of the page, and are kind of annoying, and for some people are supposedly covering up parts of the page itself(for me, the page is stretched around it, but their certainly still kinda annoying). I'm not sure what's up, but I don't think their suppose to be like this. <_< ...Or are they?

Patroller Power

The community seems to have unanimously decided to give more power to the patroller rank, particularly concerning image deletion and protected pages. But the proposal seems to have failed because no one can touch those rights and alter them. What is your opinion on the subject? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:44, 14 March 2008 (EDT)

I thought the original purpose of the patroller class was to have a squad of users only able to deal with trolls, spammers, etc. Instead of these additions we might as well make them all sysops. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:04, 14 March 2008 (EDT)

ThunderCS could be here also

Hello Steve, back at the porplemontage studios wiki where you made me sysop I did a little cleanup. I canned ThunderCS/Main Page but there was something odd about it. His main page looked like our old main page which led me to belive he has been at this wiki too. My proposal is that I could be a checkuser over there and a sysop here so I can lookup his IP and see if it matches with any users here. Then I could have some suspects.RapidRocker Brawl FC:4296-2708-0195 18:12, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

Garlic Man and sometimes 1 or so others remove my perfectly good edits for abosolutly no reason whatsoever. Just for the sake of doing so, nearly half of my edits are taken down. For example, what is wrong with editing saying Prof. Kolorado was on his way returning home to his wife instead of just saying he was returning home or that Luvbi's parents were loving parents to her and cared for her at her bedside or saying O'Chunks spoke with an Irish accent when I noticed this myself, and the official stamped seal of apporoval guide from nintendo power said this on pages such as 27.

Proposal Notice Template

Hey, Steve, do you think something like this would come in handy for articles under a proposal's debate?


It would be posted at the top of an article (like right now SNES and SNES Mouse for example), but I don't know if it's a good idea. — Stooben Rooben I figured you'd be the one to ask.

Nice idea. IMO this would be a good idea. Because while the proposal for the Bob Hoskins article was running. I believe users were still editing the page. My one problem with it is, some users may take it the wrong way. And believe that you shouldn't make any major edits to the article. Also maybe the link to the proposals page should be fixed to link to the appropriate proposal, like the link would be this. Thats just my two cents on this suggestion. Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC Stooby = Genius
Thanks, Xze. So, it should look more like this then:

I surmise that he sent a PM. BUT I DID NOT SEE THE WARNING BECAUSE SIFI KEPT MASS SPAMMING MY INBOX. A bunch of Ronald McDonald pictures and other crap. It was not my fault cause I know this is what happened. If the mods don't want you to discuss political views, it's all fine and dandy. That's just swell.

  • I will not detain you long. Steve this don't make no sence. Blocked forever from the forum for making a goofball thread in the TOTAL NONSENCE BOARD. If you can't put total nonsence on there, then that board should have never been created. I'm not really like that it was just a joke for god's sakes. I stopped the political stuff I mean come on. AND I DON'T WANNA HEAR ANY OF THOSE MODS THAT DON'T LIKE ME SAY "YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE AND YOU BLEW IT". I HAVEN'T DONE NOTHING WRONG LATELY. If you ppl want me to make no more nonsence threads, even on the NONSENCE board in the off-topic board, then fine. THAT is the only reason I can think of for getting banned. Is this really final? If I am banned forever from the forums, I shall quit the Wiki. I sure wish something can be done. I actually am stable enough to belong to a fickin forum I was just kidding around on the NONSENCE forum. Can u make some limit to it? I don't know I don't know what's happening to me. But the mod staff was damn wrong. I wish something could be done. I guarentee if you look thru my posts u'll find nothing wrong. I know a man ain't supposed to cry but I can't retain myself. Lift the ban once and for all. X06 12:58, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

*1 Final Plea: Steve, I gotta catch my bearings. Look, I've made alot of fine edits and created alot of articles for the wiki that I think the mods should take into account before throwing me off the forums ad infinitum. You can thumb thru em if you wanna. Please. I was led astray by that stupid friggen Nonsence Board. THE POSTS DON'T COUNT THERE ANYWAY. That ashley topic in the nonsence board was JUST A JOKE. I EVEN SAID SO IN THE TOPIC IT WAS JUST A JOKE AND I WASN'T SERIOUS READ IT URSELF. Is there anychance in God's Heaven I can be allowed back? ANYTHING!?? p.s. read through that whole topic there is nothing sexual whatsoever in that topic. nothing whatsoever. X06 13:29, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

*STEVE IF I'M LET BACK ON I DON'T CARE IF I'M MONITERED!!! I WON'T EVER EVEN POST ANYTHING WEIRD ANYMORE!!! I'LL JUST TALK ABOUT MARIO! I SWEAR IT! I SWEAR IT!!!!!! PLEASE I DON'T HAVE ANY FRIENDS THE MARIO WIKI WAS MY WHOLE LIFE! I DON'T WANNA LIVE IF I CAN'T BE ALLOWED ON! NEVER A WEIRD POST AGAIN(even tho i thought it would be ok in a nonsence board but STILL never again) I SWEAR IT! I SWEAR IT! I DODNT KNOW I WAS BREAKIN A RULE! I WOULD NEVER INTENTIONALLY BREAK A RULE! I'M LOYAL TO THE WIKI! PLEASE! I BEG YOU! I'LL JUST TALK ABOUT MARIO AND VIDEO GAMES AND STUFF! I PROMISE! I PROMISE ON MY GRANDMA'S LIFE! I'M SORRY FOR WHATEVER I DID! PLEASE!! PLEEEASSE!!! X06 13:06, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

Read this. Stop shouting and write in lower case. Don't use bold print exessively. This isn't a way to communicate with each other. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 13:59, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
  • Cobold I don't see nothing new on my talk page which u gave me a link to. X06 16:13, 5 May 2008 (EDT)(EDT)
  • Hold up a second this is almost laughable. That Ashley thread had nothing to do with me getting banned. And it shouldn't have there was nothing wrong with it. It's not bannable to be silly. He claimed it was for "THAT WAS SOME PEOPLE HERE MUST BE SMOKING" comment. I got no idea what's he's talking about I don't remember what I said. Was that taken as a sexual comment I KNOW FOR A FACT I WAS NOT MAKING NO SEXUAL COMMENT. I have no idea why, I can't even understand what I was saying. What's the whole quote? It seems like I was taken out of context. All I can make of it was that they thought I was saying I or myself is smoking something. That's bad? I heard people joke that Wayoshi was gay on the forum. The mods certainly can not be serious for suspending me for even 10 seconds, let alone forever, for that quote. There is no way. This ban must be lifted immedialty. Then again, I do not remember even saying that until Blitz showed me the quote. Perhaps I was misunderstood to have meant something bad, but I assure you, I MEANT NOTHING BAD. I can not see the whole topic, or the rest of my post so I dunno what's going on but I think I should be unbanned this instant. I apologize if whatever it was I said(I have no recollection what I said, honest to God), I know for a fact I meant nothing bad cause I wanna stay on the forums. X06 16:30, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

Problem

Please, undo your last edit in the Mediawiki monobook js (the last one you put the collapsible table syntax), because it doesn't work. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png 01:14, 6 May 2008 (EDT) the feature needs also a navbox syntax in the mediawiki monobook css in order to work the collapsible table...

Okay. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:36, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Sorry to bother you, but I sent you a PM a while ago, and you never responded...mind responding? Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC

Steve, try to perform a move to block the user CHEYSEY (talk), please ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png 22:58, 8 May 2008 (EDT) "I guess i should be thankful"

Popple Kong

Hey again Steve, I am making a playable video game (codenamed "Popple Kong") that for Userpedia, and I wanted to ask your permission for two things. Keep in mind that this game is based on Doneky Kong. 1) Is it OK to post playable games on Userpedia, and 2) Can I use your sprites in the game, you'll replace Mario. So, can I?? Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

Steve doesn't have any jurisdiction over Userpedia; you'd have to as Xzelion if the game is okay. Asking for his sprites is fine though. — Stooben Rooben 18:19, 10 May 2008 (EDT)

Wiki Emblem

You know that lovely image in the upper left-hand corner? The one that says Super Mario Wiki? I'm trying to add an image like that to a different wiki, but I can't find the exact page to link from. Would you happen to know? -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 17:22, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

What's the wiki? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:44, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

You'll need to contact ELWiki. I change it through access to the wiki files [1]. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:08, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
Thanks. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 16:21, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Server Switch?

Hey Steve, can we consider a Server Change? Lately we have been getting alot spammers coming to our channel (resulting in bans, bans, and more bans). All I think of is that Freenode might not be a bad place to try, theres also another server (I think it was Esper) that my brother uses, apparently its not bad. Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC

Haven't seen much of this. I'll keep watching. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:20, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

A Bot

Hi Steve. I am currently making an Anti-Vandalism bot for this wiki, and I needed to know a couple things: 1) Is it OK if I can make a bot for this wiki? 2) If it is OK, can I test it a couple times? 3) Once I make the account (and if it's OK), could you add the "Bot" userright to it? I just thought I should ask you before making a drastic change. ;) BLOC PARTIER.

It doesn't look to me like we need it. Our sysops have always been pretty good at their job. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:20, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
OK. I couldn't get the stuff to work, anyway. :P BLOC PARTIER.

Back-Up Operator

Hey Steve, I was wondering if I could be a back-up. Now this is your decision, and I wont start flaming you or anything if you say no. My reason is that sometimes Ops are here and there and other times No ops so there should really be someone to look out and im on chat most of the time.

Please take this to consideration, Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???
Thanks Again! Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???
What are you doing here? I mean, you're welcome (don't mess up). --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:48, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

Anger Management Problems

My anger management problems got me blocked on Userpedia... again! Do you think that I should've told the other users there right after I joined? That way my actions would be less likely to get me blocked if they're withing range of "induced by slight anger management problems"... that is if the sysops there are the understanding kind, which at this point I can tell that they're not... at least towards me. Could you please knock some sense into them, cause If I try to I'll get blocked by Blitz. Currently the're being insensitive slobs that only care about themselves and victims other than me. I"M A VICTIM, A VICTIM OF FALSE ARREST (I was blocked because they thought that I flamed Toadette 4Evur)!!! GET THEM TO UNBLOCK ME 'CAUSE NOW THEY WON'T LISTEN TO ME, WHICH IS DRIVING ME CRAZIER.-KP Blue

Well, actually, there might be TWO Userpedia sysops that MIGHT help me.-KP Blue 21:26, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

Rudniki, Userpedia isn't run by Steve, he has no control over it. I'd take it up with the Userpedia Sysops if I were you. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 00:41, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Forum Topic

Could you please delete this topic? It definitely seems inappropriate for young children (hmmm... and probably all of us). Even though it's in the Topic Vault, any six-year-old with access to the Internet can still view it. P.S.: Well done on founding this wiki (I only joined last week).

Back Up Op

Like what Super-Yoshi said, can I be a back-up op? Some ops aren't there, some are busy, or somethings lazy to do something, so can I be a back-up op Steve? -RedFire Mario

Look, I don't know enough about your chat performance. If the other ops consider you trustworthy enough, then sure. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:31, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

You Upgraded My Life

So...you're the founder. Well....THANKS! I love the Mario Wiki! You're awesome! Seriously, this place is an awesome community...sure, you get spammers and trolls, pornographic ads (a while ago), etc. But I love it. I've "met" heaps of cool nerrs like me. I'm an unashamed geek!


So, thanks for doing the ultra-hard job of starting a whole Wiki!

Xzelion - Power abuse on chat.

Seriously. I was talking in caps, which apparently he has something against... and he banned me. Right off the hook. No kick. Not even a warning. He just banned me. I say something should be done. - SiFi 13:01, 2 July 2008 (EDT)

I have you signing off at 13:08. Does that make me crazy? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:55, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
No more than usual. I seem to remember all caps being an auto-kick anyway. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 17:03, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
Let me defend myself here: This was the other day, SiFi has always been disruptive in chat, and talking in all caps & annoying the other chatters. I told him to stop, he refused, and it was an unanimous decision by the ops active in the room to ban him. Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC
Xzelion said "Stop talking in caps.". That much is true. Then I asked him what was wrong with talking in caps and he banned me! As Ghost Jam points out, that's worth a KICK, not a ban. - SiFi 11:31, 3 July 2008 (EDT)
SiFi, your side seems to a bit faulty you said you were not warned, and right now you just admitted you were warned. Also your side is also highly-exaggerating this, there was a period of at least 10 minutes from which I told you stop and when you were banned. I'd just like to get that out of the way. And you used CAPS over an extended period time, over that time I warned you several times to stop, all of which you chose to ignore. Not only this but hes had a record of breaking the rules, such as Sockpuppeting, Impersonating, Nick Abuse, Flaming, and Spamming. And like I said before, it was an unanimous decision by the active chat ops to carry out the ban. Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC

User Page

Hello I can't seem to create my userpage. I logged in as usual, but I never gor my activation email. could you ask the webmaster to resend it? I really need my userpage.

Inappropriate Ads

During my semi-normal routine to get into the chatroom, it seems that those ads came back again. Again, the ads mention of saying “Meet Sexy Persians HERE!”. It is a shock that the ad filtering that you have added in for yourself to manage the ads won't go away. Here are some sample links:

http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/imgad?id=CMqAtfuK5qGrbhDUAxgxMggukwRvpJDWkA Image
http://iranianpersonals.com/?affiliateID=google4Ir&gclid=CMHpqYfpqpQCFSEbagodyGyWtw Site

Would this help remove them? RAP.pngRAP... Please reconsider your actions with the ad revenues.

There are no ad filters; I can block specific websites from running their ads. The URL I need is usually displayed somewhere on the ad. For you I have blocked iranianpersonals.com from running ads on the website. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:30, 6 July 2008 (EDT)

How did you create the wiki. Because i want to create one.--Blue Koop 20:00, 9 July 2008 (EDT)

Coding Problem

Despite not having edited it, my talkheader is now full of Red Links and broken coding that weren't there before the Troll attack. Do the server lock have anything to do with it? --Blitzwing 08:20, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
