You're the guy...

...who created the Bonus Stage Wiki. Therefore, since you created both the Mario and Bonus Stage Wikis, you are an awesome human being. 35x35pxBirdo's Cookie SweetCookieSnack SPM.png

Thank you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:43, 7 February 2009 (EST)


  • Yo, don't mean to bother you, but every time I try to view my User or Talk pages, I get this:

Database error A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was: UPDATE cur SET cur_touched='20090209005137' WHERE cur_namespace=2 AND cur_title='Birdo's_Cookie' from within function "". MySQL returned error "1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 's_Cookie at line 1 (localhost)".

I recently underwent a name change; do you think that has anything to do with it? 35x35pxBirdo's Cookie SweetCookieSnack SPM.png

Yeah, the ' is screwing it up for some reason. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:15, 8 February 2009 (EST)
Is there a way to fix that? 35x35pxBirdo's Cookie SweetCookieSnack SPM.png
I can't shake it. My only suggestion would be to change your name to something without the '. Sorry. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:05, 14 February 2009 (EST)

Template problems

Several templates of the wiki are malfunctioning, for example the character-infobox of Bowser. Can you check the issue? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 11:55, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Nevermind, it was already fixed. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:52, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Wiki

Just to continue what Blue Koop asked, both of us would like to create a wiki. Do you know how to start a wiki that's ran by scribblewiki? Giratinabylydarioss8.jpgPalkia47Palkia.png Dialga.png

Looks like you want to be here to sign up for a free wiki. The rest of their plans are here. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:02, 17 July 2008 (EDT)

How do I edit the wiki logo? ShyGuy27|Talk

I have nothing to do with ScribbleWiki. Here. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:50, 7 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks ShyGuy27|Talk

Xzelion

Could you please promote Xzelion to sysop. Tell him that it was my idea, as an apology for the problems I've caused.-KP Blue 23:43, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

What? He's barely even on the wiki. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:10, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
KP is just trying to win his way back into Userpedia. — Stooben Rooben 18:13, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
No it's not. And He's un-retired, remember?-KP Blue 10:24, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
He's un-un-retired. Get your facts straight before attempting to be a suck-up. --Blitzwing 10:26, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Hey!

How is it going steve? I haven't talk to you in awhile... F gLarrynana.gif

Going good, Fg. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:44, 10 August 2008 (EDT)

What's up?

Hey Porplemontage, what's up? I haven't talked to you in basically forever. How've you been doing? Do you have Brawl. If you do, what's your Brawl Code? Mine is 2063-1004-9695 --Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

I'm good, Aipom. I don't play Brawl. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:55, 11 August 2008 (EDT)

Rudnicki Mario

Hey Steve, do you remember the user named "X06" that got blocked for a million things? He just made a sockpuppet named "Rudnicki Mario". SJ derp :P

I remember that. Thanks for the heads up. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:21, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

So you are the founder.

This is an awesome opportunity. It's nice to finally meet you :D 30.pngR.O.B. 128User offline.gif

Likewise, thanks X. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:21, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

You're welcome. --R.O.B 128 06:59, 5 September 2008 (EDT)

Bot

Can I please have permission to make a bot for the chat? It would be there to assist operators with functions like quick kick, powerful bans and the like. It would not speak and would not be anoying. If you do it'll be up quite quickly. Thanks a lot, Jdrowlands (talk) 04:08, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

Is that really necessary? Plus we run the risk of the bot enslaving humanity. (no) --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:21, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

Sad news.

We regret to inform you that the Wiki has reached its peak and is now melting into a crud-bucket. Although you are not to blame, I suggest you pull the plug on this wiki IMMEDIATELY. - SiFi is not a troll.

I don't get it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:21, 16 August 2008 (EDT)

The wiki is becoming a troll hive - SiFi is not a troll.

Uploading Images

Hey, Steve! Me and Garlic Man had a little conversation, and I was wondering, can you upload without things like GIMP? --Palkia47 08:27, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

Yes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:45, 18 August 2008 (EDT)
Sweet! Thanks for answering. :) --Palkia47 18:48, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

hi porple i have a question where do i go or how do i install a chat on a wiki?


Yoshi_4.gif

Yoshi64 Please Watch my You Tube Channel [3] Yoshi_4.gif 08:38, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

Well we used this extension but it's most likely impossible with ScribbleWiki. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:03, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

HAI

Hai Porple! You're the founder of this wiki? SO AWESOME! I couldn't resist saying hai, cuz this wiki is awesome! Luigi MH3on3.pngZ3r0 Tw0Zerotwo.jpg I used awesome a lot in those sentences....

Hello; glad you're enjoying it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:03, 20 August 2008 (EDT)
I sure am! Thanks for responding! Luigi MH3on3.pngZ3r0 Tw0Zerotwo.jpg

Userpedia

Hai, steve. remember me? Anyway, if you don't mind me asking why don't you join userpedia? Its really fun. It has fan fics and comix. You could even make your own Userpedia. Alot of users would join that. I'm just asking because you made this great wiki, you could also probably make a great fan fic! 24px Clay Mario 24px

I pretty much know Steve's response already, "No thanks" Lol (Toadbert101|TBPaper.PNG|Scream|My comic]|Sez:NO WAI, A SIG WITH OUT {{PAGENAME}}! :O)
I've created an account. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:15, 25 August 2008 (EDT)
Steve + userpedia = MC Hammer Bro. fainting.

If you get the opinion of another user, can I become a back up op on MWiki Chat? Please Steve? MC Hammer Bro. 22:37, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

I don't know your chat performance well-enough. Consult some other ops or drop it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:35, 29 August 2008 (EDT)

Re:help

can you explain it to me because i don't understand wat and where is the Irc thing Yoshi_4.gif Yoshi64 Please Watch my You Tube Channel [4] Yoshi_4.gif

Our IRC chat channel is accessible through Special:Chat. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:32, 29 August 2008 (EDT)

Polls

Just wondering, what happens to the polls that don't get chosen? I mean, I know they won't be used that week, but are they sorta 'on hold' for later weeks? Also, if the answer to that question would be 'no', are we allowed to submit the same poll the next week? -Moonshine

They'll just remain on the page until they're used. If a poll is removed without being used it should not be submitted again. If the number of submitted polls pile up I'll make it daily until we start running low. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 03:57, 29 August 2008 (EDT)
Haha. Alright, thanks. =)- Moonshine

Affiliation

Hello Steve! Glitchman here, and I was just wondering if you would be so kind as to affiliate with my Wiki, the Classic Nintendo Wiki. It's pretty small right now, but it has potential and I figure affiliating with other well-known websites, such as the MW, will boost its popularity. I've already linked to the MW, and I even have an affiliate button, [5]. Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG 22:52, 30 August 2008 (EDT)

Sorry, but the answer is no. Not to be unfair, I've finally set a few strict qualifications for sites looking to affiliate. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:58, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

Site Notice

You remember when we used to have the site notice at the top of the page, right?(sorry, stupid question) The thing that said stuff like "The new 'Shroom issue is out" and "We now have our own article on Wikipedia" and various other news about the wiki. And, once we got our own server, and we started getting advertisements on the top and the sides, the site notice dissapeared. I felt them to be pretty handy, and maybe they dissapeared because of the ads in the way or something, but; is there any way to get them back? I felt that it would be easier to get news around in the wiki, considering that the Site Notice Banner was there, whereever on the wiki you were. I just thought it could be nice to get those back. Marcelagus (TCE)

We've very recently implemented an announcement box on the Main Page which we will use for notices that would have otherwise gone on the Site Notice. It's not on every wiki page, but it's as good as we're going to get. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:39, 31 August 2008 (EDT)
Wait... there's an announcement box? Where? Marcelagus (TCE)
I said Main Page. It currently reads "Users: We would like some feedback, ranging from general activity to current issues." --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:00, 31 August 2008 (EDT)
Oh, that's the announcement box? I thought... it was some random thing. So, what made it so that we used to be able to do it, but not now? What would happen if we did it with the ads in there? Is there a way to eliminate the ads on the top(or do the bottom and side ones interfere, too)? Marcelagus (TCE)

Just you know, Crypt Raider (talk) posted some codes on my talk that supposedly could makes the sitenotice appear. However, I'm not sure they really works, especially considering he links to a non-existent page.. --Blitzwing 20:40, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

I don't want the Sitenotice to appear. If I did, it would still be up there. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:22, 31 August 2008 (EDT)
Why don't you want it, though? Garlic Man (talk)
Ads go there now. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:20, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

?

thats not wat i meant....i meant to ask can u explain to me how to install chat on a wiki i think it would be esiar if u showed me

Yoshi64 Please Watch my You Tube Channel [6] Yoshi_4.gif

I used this. There are plenty of ways and places for you to figure out chat through ScribbleWiki. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:39, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Skin

May I suggest some red in the skin of this wiki? It fits. 30.pngR.O.B. 128User offline.gif

You may, but I don't want this place to look crazy. You can mess around in your monobook.css and let me know how it looks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:00, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

Ok. Thanks dude :) --R.O.B 128 17:04, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

Uhhh... how do I toggle with it? Can you show me? --R.O.B 128 17:07, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

It's for customizing the CSS code of the site. I can't teach you CSS; copy this code to your page and you can remove the parts you don't like or tweak it. I hate how light red turns to pink. Red itself is too dark for a background with text over it and I end up with a pink website. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:52, 5 September 2008 (EDT)

Thanks. I'll try and make it work; I don't like pink either. --R.O.B 128 22:08, 5 September 2008 (EDT)

Irc

Hai its me again (Yoshi_4.gif Yoshi64 Please Watch my You Tube Channel [7] Yoshi_4.gif) can you tell me where i can find my Irc Directory of my website .

I have no clue; there probably isn't one. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:46, 6 September 2008 (EDT)

Unsolicited Feedback

Dear porplemontage, I can no longer contain myself. I need to let you know that I feel your lack of looking things up is quite disgusting. I was shocked, appalled and dismayed. I would propose that you consider asking other people, because if you do not, you may lose some population in the chat. All this may come as news to you, though I can assure you that it has been going on since I asked to be a channel operator, if not sooner. I would have informed you sooner, though I was not in a good mood and may have offended you. If you do manage to make this change, I promise to be a fantastic channel operator, which would surely be better. Thank you for your consideration.

Why I kept quiet:

  • I thought you already knew.
  • I hoped it would solve itself.
  • I expected someone else to mention it.

Why I chose to speak up:

  • You are otherwise a good person.
  • This change would improve our lives.
  • All attempts at subtlety have failed.

I implore you:

  • Do not take this personally.
  • Do not ignore this message.
  • Keep us alerted of our flaws.
  • Seek help.
  • Let us never speak of this again.

Who feels this way:

ONLY ME - EVERYONE YOU KNOW - STRANGERS, TOO

"Looking things up"? I don't know what that means. The dictionary comes to mind. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:46, 6 September 2008 (EDT)
I can see how you'd see it that way... what I meant was ask unbiased people about me, like mainstreet (DarkMyst IRCer) if I would be a good chanop. Thanks again, CarbonFiberMan 16:33, 6 September 2008 (EDT)
This whole thing is because I won't make you an op? Really? Guess what: we don't have campaigns for channel operators. This type of thing makes you come across as needy and selfish, and can only hurt your standings. No user is entitled to a position of power; the existing ops and I keep an eye out for capable users to promote if we feel more are needed. I've yet to see the chat apocalypse as a result of you being only a normal user (God forbid), but I'll keep an eye out for it. You've certainly made my job easier when it comes to deciding who I might and might not select as an op in the future. Oh yeah, and don't take it personally. Thanks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:37, 6 September 2008 (EDT)

Okay. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:20, 8 September 2008 (EDT)

well I think I handled it pretty well if I say so my self. thank you so much for your help and support. MC Hammer Bro. 21:00, 8 September 2008 (EDT)

You've passed your first test; Well done. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:12, 8 September 2008 (EDT)
I've written a comment on RAP's talk page about what a user named "R.O.B 128" has been doing in the past few hours. Can you check it? I really don't want to have to type it out again. Thanks. SJ derp :P
He's broke several rules today. I don't believe his offenses (against Princess Grapes Butterfly, Ursulaboi, me, and others) are acceptable in any way. I know he firmly believes Birdo is female, but I was trying to point out that others' opinions are valid as well. Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 21:16, 8 September 2008 (EDT)

Yes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:20, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

Server

Steve, I think something's up with the server, because not too long ago whenever I tried to get on the wiki, the server would ask for my log in info. SJ derp :P

That was me. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:20, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

Rename

Hi Steve...again. Earlier today I put a request for a name change on the User rename page, however, the last 'crat that was online renamed a user's request, but mine seemed to be...ignored (the user who was renamed had their request right before mine). Could you do the rename? SJ derp :P

Sure. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:20, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

MediaWiki

Hey, Steve. I was wondering if you could help me with something? I've downloaded MediaWiki on my computer, and now I want to create a site called 'http://www.musicbank.com'. There's one problem: I don't know how to start the site. Do you know how I could activate the aforementioned URL to become my new wiki? Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 20:20, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

musicbank.com is an existing website. Do you own the domain? You would require a domain and webhosting service first. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:53, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh, I'll change the name then. Thanks for the heads-up. No, I don't have a domain; I'll get one. Thanks for the help. :) Also, someone has made about fifteen sockpuppets, would you please block them? — Stooben Rooben 15:00, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

Thanx

ok acctually i got a site at Wiki site .... and now ineed to ask you where is the Irc directory of my site? (i already installed media wiki onto mine) and can you give me instructions on how to do it (media wiki is too confusing.) Yoshi_4.gif Yoshi64 Please Watch my You Tube Channel [12] Yoshi_4.gif [[13]] -my site

I downloaded PJIRC from here and created the directory for it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:04, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Last Step

As you may or may not know, ScribbleWiki has completely shut down, so all of its wikis are inaccessible. Rather than making a music wiki with the MediaWiki I've downloaded, I've decided to make a new Userpedia. (Many users seem very fond of this idea.) Now, I'm on the very last step of creating Userpedia. I have a domain, server, everything I need. I have only one question.

In the file config.inc, there is a section for me to put my password and my username for the db. Could you please show me where exactly to put the db password and db username so that I can get Userpedia started? Perhaps you could copy over the section of the config.inc file, and bold the section(s) as to where I need to put my db password and db username? I, along with many other Userpedia members, would greatly appreciate your help. — Stooben Rooben 12:14, 2 October 2008 (EDT)

I've never had to touch that file. You can Google for samples of it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:31, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Really? Thanks. It seems all the walkthroughs I could find online were for older versions that aren't supported anymore, or for foreign editions that the US doesn't get. I must be stupid because I don't understand MediaWiki's instructions. Could you please explain to me exactly how you set up the MarioWiki? If you'd prefer to do this via PM on the forums, that's fine as well. — Stooben Rooben 11:18, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Are you trying to setup the database or the wiki itself? For MediaWiki all you have to do is upload its files and go to the site. There, you enter the information about the wiki and the database and the rest is done automatically. As for creating the database, I used the server's control panel. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:45, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Well, I made it to the form screen. I've filled in my password, username, e-mail, domain, memcache options, and the wiki's name. The only thing that's stopping me from creating it, is when I enter my db username and db password. It says "please check username and password", or "username incorrect". I think once I pass that part, I can upload files into the wiki and actually get it started. — Stooben Rooben 17:56, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, the database info it's requesting is for an existing MySQL database on your server. You'll have to create that before you can do anything else. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:35, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
And how exactly do I do that? — Stooben Rooben 19:07, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Don't know for you. Like I said I use my server's control panel to create databases. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:35, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

[17:43] <Super-Yoshi> [15:50] <Boozooka> SHUT TEH F*** UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Now, I'd like to note that the F-Bombs were not censored originally. Boozooka later went into #mariowiki and cursed and broke the rules there. Toadbert101 was the only op on at the time, and by the time he was back, Boozooka left. I think we need more ops in #mariowiki. ...And I'd like to suggest that Super-Yoshi be one of those ops, as he was on #mariowiki at that time. And perhaps Pokemon DP; he's on every night and doesn't break the rules. — Stooben Rooben 20:11, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
Okay. And for the record, #mwikiawards is not an official channel of the MarioWiki. I don't own that one, so it is the responsibility of whoever does. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:24, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
Ah. I thought that you had domain over #mwikiawards and #mwikiadmins. Sorry. — Stooben Rooben 22:33, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
I'm not sure about #mwikiadmins, but #mwikiawards should be covered by Wayoshi, I'm guessing. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 23:40, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
Actually GJ, The Chozo Yoshi (talk) owns it currently. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???
Perhaps 1337Yoshi would make a good Operator too. He's on every day, is nice, doesn't spam or flame. He's got the qualifications. I don't plan on nominating anyone else though. — Stooben Rooben 18:30, 15 October 2008 (EDT)

Nope. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:57, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Mario

There seems to be a problem with the 'block new users' feature on the Mario article. M&SG, who has been here for over 1 month, still cannot edit the article; whereas, other users who are newer than him can. Any ideas on what to do? — Stooben Rooben 17:00, 19 October 2008 (EDT)

I have no clue. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:08, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
Who is in charge of the protection system? It would be good to find out to how many days it's set. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:38, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
I thought it was 15 days, but M&SG being unable to access Mario tends to prove that theory wrong. — Stooben Rooben 15:41, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
It's 30 days. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:13, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
Ah, that explains it. He wasn't here for 30 days yet at that time. — Stooben Rooben I think 1337Yoshi would make a good chat Op... 17:06, 22 October 2008 (EDT)

MW upload

steve for some reason i can't edit MW:upload to go to MarioWiki:Image use policy --Ashura.jpgHemu the Twelve Year Old prodigyAshura.jpg 17:38, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

That's because it redirects to a page at mediawiki.org. The "MW" in the link is what causes the glitch. — Stooben Rooben 17:48, 29 October 2008 (EDT)
We probably don't need it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:38, 31 October 2008 (EDT)

Problems with the server lately

Hello Steve, do you have any idea how much your bandwidth bill costs? Just curious. :3 Eariler Wayo once said that we all have the bandwidth we need, hence the talk archives I have stored with that comment. That statement may lead me into upload more images, some having larger file size and some small. >;3 Now recently, we are having server issues right now. One of the reasons of this cause is hotlinking. Basically other websites use our images and link them to their website as theirs, what's worse is that they are sucking our bandwidth! The server! (sigh) One of the reasons alas. For more information, read this page and this page for further information. Please take the time to confront this. RAP.pngRAP... Me haz headache... ow. Recovering tomorrow... *tries going to sleep*

Hotlinking is not one of the reasons for server issues. If bandwidth became tight I would disable it but for now it's not an issue. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:36, 31 October 2008 (EDT)

1337Yoshi

I think it would be good to promote him to Op in chat. He's on everyday, follows the rules, is nice, and immediately informs an Op when there's trouble. (Unless there isn't one around.) — Stooben Rooben 15:54, 2 November 2008 (EST)

I would have done it a lot sooner if you had provided the proper nick. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:25, 2 November 2008 (EST)
Oh, I forgot he put a "_" before his name. XP — Stooben Rooben 16:30, 2 November 2008 (EST)

Swearing

Us users aren't suppose to swear on this wiki right? I found a swear in the proposal page. (I tried censord it but he undo what I did then relied this in the summary bar (→Comments - "I. Don't. Freaking. Care. Do not modificate other users comment! That's in the freaking rules") YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

"Damn" is a really, really mild "swear". If it was the f-bomb, I could understand, but that? It's not even offending if you're not Christian. --Blitzwing 07:48, 3 November 2008 (EST)

Mario Calendar

Hi Porple.

I made a Mario Calendar to go for the Main Page, and it's sorta like Wikipedia's "On this day". This calendar shows all past release dates of Mario games released on that month. For example, right now it's November so the calendar shows all past Mario games that were released on November. I think it's a great idea and before putting it on the Main Page, I wanted to see if you approved.

User:Paper Jorge/Test

Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)Soo...can it go on the Main Page?

It's not bad; somewhat interesting. Make a proposal for it, and if it passes I'll be the one to put it up. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:05, 3 November 2008 (EST)

Calender Templates

Hey Steve, I think you should protect the two templates before vandalism can happen to them. Just thought I'd tell you, sry if you already knew. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

Good call, sport. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:27, 12 November 2008 (EST)
lol thx :P Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

I just wonder...

...may I create the rest of the calendars for the rest months of the year, already? Creating them all at the same time seems to save some time, since when creating them at different times, you don't need to go back to lists when checking on the Internet just because that or that game was released in another month than the one you're collecting Mario data on, the same thing when looking after dates in magazines, newspapers, etc. KingMario (talk)

I was expecting Paper Jorge to get on that, but since he hasn't by all means you may. The December page and template should obviously be our first priority. Thanks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:08, 19 November 2008 (EST)

Thank you for using my 1st logo. I changed the background of the newer versions. The pictures are now all in the same format, also game pictures are reorganized and some even replaced. Games in the background of the new logo include in order:

  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario World
  • New Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario 64
  • Super Mario Sunshine
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Mario Kart 64
  • Mario Tennis (64)
  • Mario Superstar Baseball

The old logo included in order:

  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario World
  • New Super Mario Bros.
  • Mario Kart 64
  • Super Mario Sunshine
  • Mario Power Tennis
  • Super Mario 64
  • Mario Superstar Baseball
  • Super Mario Galaxy

Personally, I like MarioWikiLogo3-1 better than 3-2, but someone once said to me he liked yellow better than white-pink, that’s why I made two versions. I hope you like it. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Hey!

Just thought I'd formally introduce myself, since we hardly know each other and I assume we'll be working closely in the future! Nice to meet you. Can you give me a run-down on what's expected of me now that I'm promoted? Stumpers! 23:21, 1 December 2008 (EST)

Good to hear from you, Stumpers. Of course technically, I've entrusted you with the power to manage user rights on the wiki. Your prominence as a figure on the wiki stage, judgment, and activity on the site are qualities which contributed to your promotion, and in this period of transition, I will allow you some leeway in finding your place as a wiki bureaucrat. I may call upon you, as well as our colleagues Stooben Rooben and Time Q, for your unique perspective on the wiki community if any decisions are needed to be made. From trouble in wikiville to improvements to the website, I trust any input to be reported to me, and the four of us can decide what action to take. These types of things being the exception and not the rule--it's all part of our hierarchy of power. There are issues facing the wiki that sysops can deal with, but for the larger issues, we have the bureaucrats to turn to. I would advise you to keep doing what you've been doing, and you'll fall into place as bureaucrat of the Super Mario Wiki. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:47, 2 December 2008 (EST)
Just keep doing the same thing? Sounds good to me! Thanks for the promotion and I'll see you around! Stumpers! 10:22, 2 December 2008 (EST)

And on top of that, I'd like to sincerely thank you for promoting me. I promise to do the best I can with my powers! — Stooben Rooben 00:18, 2 December 2008 (EST)

You are welcome. I believe in you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:47, 2 December 2008 (EST)

Can I use the old wiki logo?

Hello! On the italian Mario Wiki(http://it.mario.wikia.com/wiki/Pagina_principale), the logo is the old one of this wiki, and somebody told me that: so I'm asking you: can I use it (giving credits)? If not, I'll remove it. Thanks for the attention :) --Enderjin 14:04, 6 December 2008 (EST)

I'm not going to say no, but I would advise you to create your own site design and images. Your wiki would probably do better if your visitors saw that it is something original, and not just a carbon copy of another site. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:58, 6 December 2008 (EST)

Hi, I'm one of the admins on the Italian Mario Wiki. I've changed a lot of things: [15] (you may need to refresh the cache of the browser to see the changes). I will soon change everything that is too similar to this Wiki. For the pages content, I must say that we are not copying, but translating the english articles in italian. I hope you will accept our apologies for all the mistakes we made. Thanks. --Grim80 09:31, 9 December 2008 (EST)

Paraphrasing our articles still is kinda copying. Contributors should use their own words. Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 15:53, 9 December 2008 (EST)

No, translating is not copying. It is a common practice even on Wikipedia. --Grim80 08:31, 10 December 2008 (EST)

It not!? What do you mean. Your site translating this sites' article and other stuff to Italian right. That is still stealing because in your site users are just tranlating work that came from here. Sheese laziness is no excuse why can't the users on the Italian MarioWikia right their own contant. Anyways isn't MarioWiki's work is copyright? What about asking your sister site MarioWikia in English to use their contant, you're the same wikia but yours is in Italian while theirs is in english. [16] YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

Eww that Wikia's articles are very bad. Anyway, don't be so negative about us. Our itention was never been to steal. We didn't know that we were violating the copyright. If you don't want us to translate te articles, I will create articles of my own. I'm not lazy... the only lazy users are those who create an article with only a small sentence. Anyway, I promise that wel'll cite the source if something is translated from here. --Grim80 14:54, 10 December 2008 (EST)

Grapes, you need to take it easy. The purpose of wikis is to encourage free flow of information across the internet. Anything on this wiki can be used and redistributed freely by anyone else according to the GNU Free Documentation License at the bottom of every page here. Our work is not really copyrighted in a strict sense - anyone including the Italian Mario wiki can use our content. All they have to do is cite where they got the information from as best they can. So I say to Grim80 feel free to translate anything you want from here, just try to cite that we were the original source. We need to get past exclusive "ownership" of information so that everyone has the ability to read and use content as they wish. =) -- Son of Suns (talk)

Well then excuse me for my uneasy. I'm sorry up what I said up above. =D YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

Thanks for the clarification Son of Suns. I will immediately cite the source on any page translated from here. --Grim80 15:21, 10 December 2008 (EST)

Thanks!! P.S. Here are the rules: Creative Commons. Italian Mario wiki can do whatever it wants with our content except use it to make money. All they have to do is attribute the articles they copy or translate to this site (via at least a link) and promise that their translated content can then be re-distributed by other wikis, just as we have let them use our content. =D

Hey, Steve! Well, I've got something to say. I think we you should enforce some new rules in the Poll Selection. Here's a list of them:

  1. Repeated polls sholud be DELETED, like this one.
  2. If a poll is "losing" with a certain difference of votes (could be 5 or 6, IMO), then it would be deleted too. E.g. a poll has 2 supporters and 8 opposers, so it should be deleted.
  3. If a poll is created with a REALLY BAD setup, and if at least two users say that, it should be deleted too.

Well, I hope you read this soon. Have a nice day! P Y Sig image.png Paper Yoshi Talk 07:26, 9 January 2009 (EST)

I try to do a cleanup taking care of said issues every little while. My main job is selecting one of the popular polls to use; any other sysop can help with removing bad polls. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:27, 10 January 2009 (EST)

User in need!

not me. User:Galactic Metal previously known as palkia47, lost his password, and made another user, User:Meta Galactic. Can u help him at all? YourBuddyBill 19:04, 10 January 2009 (EST)

If he used an email with his account, he can have a new password sent. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:07, 10 January 2009 (EST)

he didnt, but is it possible for someone like u to acess his page and copy the whole thing, then give it to him in a "code box"?

Anyone can view the source code for the page using the "view source" tab at the top. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:27, 11 January 2009 (EST)

Feedback

Heya. I'd like it if you could give some feedback on this, particularly the part about getting the Patroller rank reinstalled. Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 23:29, 10 January 2009 (EST)

Yes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 04:18, 11 January 2009 (EST)
Thanks! — Stooben Rooben 04:54, 11 January 2009 (EST)
There seems to be some sort of problem. The patrollers can't access Special:BlockIP. — Stooben Rooben 20:25, 11 January 2009 (EST)
Actually, they can't Block or rollback, oddly. — Stooben Rooben 05:44, 14 January 2009 (EST)

Came Back

Hey, Porplemontage. Hope I'm not bothering you, but remember me? I'm Clay Mario and I have returned to the wiki after leaving for some months. Clay Mario (talk)

Welcome back; happy new year. Welcome back. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:46, 26 January 2009 (EST)

IMPORTANT!

How do i create a sig?----Loiplez

Create a sig subpage and in your preferences make {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Loiplez/sig}} your signature; check the raw box and hit the sig button button_sig.png to get that guy on there. Remove a ~ to get that timestamp out of there. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:20, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Userpedia

This may be asking a lot from you, but would it be possible for Userpedia to have a sub-domain of the MarioWiki, or something of the sort? Ever since the crash of ScribbleWiki, Userpedia has been bouncing from wiki farm to wiki farm, but we can't find one that's really that good. Either, the wiki farm has an image restriction, or it lacks important administrative tools that we need. Because of the bouncing between twelve (I think) wiki farms, we've lost a lot of our members. However, I have the strong feeling that, should we find a good home for Userpedia, the majority of our members will return.

We've tried Wikia, Editthis, Referata, NeoWiki, Iskey.info, and many other hosts; none of them are really good. I know this is probably a lot to ask, but we're becoming desperate; we've been trying to find a good host since September. If we can't find a good home soon, Userpedia will probably end up dying. Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 20:08, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Either way you answer Steve, you will still be epic. Clay Mario (talk)
Sorry, but we really can't risk adding another wiki to the server because it could slow down this wiki and cause more downtime. I've actually considered doing this before. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:44, 31 January 2009 (EST)
No problemo, Steve. --Clay Mario (talk)
I understand. Thanks for responding. — Stooben Rooben 20:57, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Hi!! ^,^

I have a problem, on the Birdo article- (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars), this section:

Template:Smrpgenemy


is too long, Can I improve it? I have a idea, click here: http://www.mariowiki.com/User:Coincollector ( Coincollector's Userbox Tower) did you see? How can I do that? Mauj.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif ^__^;

I don't know if the scrollbars are the way to go. It doesn't look bad having the next section(s) wrap next to the box. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:49, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Well, thank you very much!!!!!!!! -,^ Mauj.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif

Spell Checker

Heyo, Steve. I don't know if you feel it should be installed, but I thought you might like to know that I found a spell check extension. This might help with any typos or bad grammar that we run across. Plus, I'm sure you could install common Mario words into the checker. (Ex: Wario, Yoshi, Waluigi, etc.) — Stooben Rooben 00:00, 8 February 2009 (EST)

It should not be installed. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:33, 8 February 2009 (EST)

MediaWiki Help

I just got Userpedia's new domain up at userpedia.adriels.com, and I'm wondering. How do you add the Steward and Patroller ranks to a wiki? I looked on MediaWiki's website, but I didn't find anything. 1337Yoshi wuz heer! I never finish anyth

Well extension [17] but manage user rights also [18]. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:54, 10 February 2009 (EST)

Farewell, Wiki-Creating Deity

As I'm retiring, just thought I'd thank you for creating this Wiki. You probably don't remember who the fudge I am, but personally I think I failed in my time here as I didn't even make it to Patroller rank, in almost a whole year.

One reason I'm leaving is that the n00bs are overtaking this Wiki. If only they would something for MediaWiki that performs Judgement on which Users are unworthy of existence here, and then blocks them. But that would be hard to make...

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk Sorry to waste your time with this message... th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

I appreciate the message. Your priorities are all wrong if you consider yourself a failure for not being promoted. You will be remembered for your perseverance in your search for Maria. Thank you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:32, 14 February 2009 (EST)
Ohai steve. Could you rename me on the requests for renaming. Thanks. Clay Mario (talk)

Of MediaWikis and Short URLs

Hi Steve,

While I've been looking at the tutorials on Mediawiki about this, seeing as I can't seem to get it working (maybe because either I read something wrong or because the wiki installation is in the root folder) I thought I would come to you for a little server admin help. Is there anything I should be considering in order for this to work? (For compatibility purposes, the server is hosted via DreamHost, as said the wiki installation is in the root folder (that is, /userpedia.adriels.com/). Neu (edits|talk|irc) 18:13, 17 February 2009 (EST)

Sorted. Don't worry, it's under control. Neu (edits|talk|irc) 01:15, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Poll Page

"Polls are way too crowded, so they must die!!!" - Zafum

I was wondering if i could be in charge of deleting polls on the poll selection page? I would delete polls that had majority of votes against them(like 3 more opposing than supporting), and delete polls that were repeated. I would also make sure the polls had correct grammar and spelling and setup.ThunderZAFUM_LOGO.jpgThunder

Yes; please do this. Thank you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:14, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Who's Maria?

Um..... WHAT!? What the fudge do you mean by my "search for Maria"? Who's Maria!? Why am I searching? Were you drunk when you wrote that, or does it mean something? If it does, please tell me, as I hate not knowing things.

Well Maria is your wife who you eventually found and shot in the head with a revolver. I'm making reference to a video game so if you figure it out let me know. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:14, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Page Length Limit, Zelda Wiki Partnership

Hey there, I originally sent this message to Stumpers, but I was referred to you.

Hello there, my name is Mases Hagopian, and I'm from one of the affiliated websites here at the Mario Wiki, Zelda Dungeon. I'm also an administrator at the ZeldaWiki (http://zeldawiki.org/Main_Page) due to the partnership between my website and the Zelda Wiki. I was hoping you could help me with one issue. The MediaWiki software I believe has a set length that pages on the Wiki can be. Do you know how this can be changed? I know its different at Mario Wiki, since you guys have much longer pages. (Even this talk page is 80,000+ bytes.) If you could guide me in the right direction, that would be really nice of you.

Also, on a side note, would you be interested in integrating the Mario Wiki and the Zelda Wiki? For example, there is a lot of cross over, much because of games like Super Smash Bros. and in the Zelda world with games like Link's Awakening. Where a lot of characters and enemies are cross overs from franchise to franchise. For example a page at Zelda Wiki such as... http://zeldawiki.org/Goomba. That can link to the Mario Wiki, similar to how we have a link to strategy wiki for our game guides. (Look at the bottom of the infobox for a page like... http://zeldawiki.org/The_Legend_of_Zelda_(Game)

I think pages at the Mario Wiki such as http://www.mariowiki.com/Il_Piantissimo, where there is a Link to Ocarina of Time, or http://www.mariowiki.com/Link that is clearly Zelda related, can have interchangeable links with the Zelda Wiki.

It's just an idea I'd like to throw out there, but I'd have to discuss it with the other bureaucrats at Zelda Wiki. Just wanted to know if there was any interest. If you could get back to me on the page length issue, that would be really nice of you. Mases 15:20, 18 February 2009 (EST)

I don't know of any limit on page length; I haven't changed anything from the initial MediaWiki install that would somehow allow our pages to be longer. And thanks for the offer, but I'm not interested in any sort of site partnership as described. Affiliation is the top of our dogs right now. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:34, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Password Loss

I, Shiancoe, recently lost my password to this wiki. Yoshario reecently showed me this maintenance script on Son of Suns' talk page:

Usage: php reassignEdits.php <from> <to> [--force]

    <from> : Name of the user to assign edits from
      <to> : Name of the user to assign edits to
   --force : Reassign even if the target user doesn't exist

Would it be possible at all to run this to assign Shiancoe's edits to Shiancoe2, rename my old user(Shiancoe) to something else, and rename this alternate account(Shiancoe2) to Shiancoe? Shiancoe2 (talk)

If you give me an email address I can have a new password sent to you. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:55, 22 February 2009 (EST)
I actually put an address in preferences when I first registered, and even clicked to get a new password sent, but it hasn't come yet. Nonetheless, I have emailed you my email address using "E-mail this user" in the toolbox. Shiancoe2 (talk)
Thanks a bunch! The password worked and I have successfully logged in. =D Shiancoe (talk)
You are welcome! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:30, 22 February 2009 (EST)

Weird Horror movie ad

O.k how come there is a horror movie ad in some of the pages, the one with the hurting daughtor thing? I thought this was a Mariowiki with nice ads not horror ads. To tell the truth, I got kinda creeped out by it when I first saw it. (Hey, don't blame me, I'm just 11 who gets nightmares) and there are younger people here. I'm just wondering so no offense or anything, so can you tell me? Thanks! 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

Issue: Disable google ads COMPLETELY!

Hello Steve, I have to tell you about that google adds appearing around the Mariowiki makes the site sorta slow when loading its content, and hard to save information to them, specially when uploading media files. Recently, these ads are running with flash player and this takes much longer time for a page to show all its content. I consider that these ads must be removed definitely, or at least use only the ad that appear to the right of the page. What do you think about it? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Just block them. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:14, 14 March 2009 (EDT)

Interwiki

Hey, Porple. I got this place set up, its the animal crossing wiki, and I finally found a host that gives me cpanel/ftp access (woot!) Anyway, could you add this wiki to the interwiki links so the wiki can link from animal crossing related information on the mariowiki. Also, have any tips or extensions I should install? Thanks, Yoshario30px
