Text replacement: Requests are valid when you've manually updated all templates and the number of links after doing so is at least 25.



Hi! ok, look, I want to make a signature for me but the help page is WAY too confusing. So scince you created this wiki(Thank you) I was wondering if you can explain in a simpler way. I want it to have Wiggler and Swiggler and Lakithunder on it!Ratfink43

Well you can edit your sig page and add the appropriate images there. Then link to it at the end of your postings with {{User:Ratfink43/sig}}. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:23, 24 November 2009 (EST)

Wow... --User:Tigger416/sig 17:23, 2 December 2009 (EST)

Main page

What do you think of the issue I brought up on Talk: Main Page?--Knife (talk) 19:19, 25 November 2009 (EST)

I've taken your advice; right now moving, uploading, and creating pages require membership for a week. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:55, 26 November 2009 (EST)
Do the changes take time to be in effect? Because recently, a new user created some spam pages and the account was only one day old.--Knife (talk) 19:23, 28 November 2009 (EST)
What pages did he create? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:09, 29 November 2009 (EST)

Hey, Steve. I know I haven't been on for a year, but can I use the Color Code Page you made on the wiki I support? GreenBoo 21:57, 23 December 2009 (EST)

Yes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:06, 23 December 2009 (EST)

Travix M.

So you show yourself on my userpage huh, good. Nice wiki. Do you wanna be friends? And do you want to join my wiki? tell me ASAP. Thanks!

P.s. Im trying to get to the chat room but its not letting me. What do I do? whats the reason?

Your wiki doesn't make any sense to me. Make sure you're down with Java. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:18, 24 December 2009 (EST)

I have Javascript, but it still won't let me through the chat.TM Sig.PNG Travix M.

Also, can this wiki be an afflite to Mario & Sonic Thug Wiki? TM Sig.PNG Travix M.

Sure, just add the button. Also Java is not the same as Javascript. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:38, 23 January 2010 (EST)

Would you know where the Affliates are? I downloaded Java. Do you want to be friends? Oh, and can I upload Bowser Jr.'s moter-boat from Super Mario Sunshine? As well as his hot air balloon?TM Sig.PNG Travix M.

How did you create the button? Can you show me how? Cause I don't know how. TM Sig.PNG Travix M.

I didn't create it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:09, 1 February 2010 (EST)


Could you make him a level 150 in chat, please? It's been decided that he deserves the promotion. — Stooben Rooben 02:50, 25 December 2009 (EST)

Yeah... --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 03:20, 25 December 2009 (EST)
Thanks. — Stooben Rooben 03:34, 25 December 2009 (EST)


Hi Steve! I noticed Sitenotice was taken out for the need of extra ad space, do you think those ads could be moved somewhere else so sitenotice can still be used? Perhaps to the bottom of the toolbox thing in the left? --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 10:46, 27 December 2009 (EST)

The Announcement box on the main page was created as a substitute. What news do you have that is so important it needs to be displayed on every wiki page? Plus the caching would delay the message for guests. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:38, 27 December 2009 (EST)
Well, I was thinking of announcing The 'Shroom, as it used to be done. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 18:35, 27 December 2009 (EST)


You know ya make MarioWiki? Can you tell me how to make a website? I really want one.

Search Google for web hosts. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:03, 6 January 2010 (EST)


Hi Steve! Can you please check this and respond? Thanks! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 11:48, 9 January 2010 (EST)

Sorry to bother again, but its very important you cehck this and this. Thanks! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 22:23, 17 January 2010 (EST)
Yeah don't worry I'm in talks on this stuff. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:52, 17 January 2010 (EST)

Interwiki LInks

Hi Steve! Sorry to bother, but could you please remove the interwiki link to Wikia? And perhaps add some to Bulbapedia and ZeldaWiki?? Thanks! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 21:38, 25 January 2010 (EST)


Sorry to bother again Steve, but what do you think of including this in the bottom of the sidebar? --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:55, 8 February 2010 (EST)

I like it with just text. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:12, 8 February 2010 (EST)
Ok, then text it is :) --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 18:18, 8 February 2010 (EST)


Hello, Steve. I was wondering if an affiliation with the Super Mario Wiki and the Kirby Wiki would be possible. With the Zelda Wiki and the Bulbapedia already affiliated with the Mario Wiki, I think an affiliation between our two Wikis would be suited. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Are you refering to WiKirby? --Marcelagus (TCE)
Actually, he was referring to this one.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Actually, long story short, we're creating an alliance of Independent Nintendo Wikis (NIWA), so affiliation with Wikia may not be a very good thing. --Marcelagus (TCE)

We're working on our own Kirby thing so give us all your articles and I think we can be friends. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:29, 8 February 2010 (EST)

Can you elaborate on this "Kirby thing"? Hello, I'm Time Turner.
I don't know anything about it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:00, 8 February 2010 (EST)
So you're working on something you have no knowledge of? Hello, I'm Time Turner.
He's kidding about giving us the articles by the way. I'm the one working on it and the one that paid for the domain and hosting. So, we are just getting started and still debugging some skins, creating articles and we don't want paste jobs from anywhere. The URL hasn't been submitted to Google yet, because we want to finish the groundwork and get a staff together before a full launch. Axiomist 20:19, 8 February 2010 (EST)
Per Axiomist. YOu will see more info in this month's Shroom. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 21:22, 8 February 2010 (EST)
Alright, so no on the Kirby Wiki? BTW, Axiomist, will WiKirby be covering everything from the games to the anime?--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Why did you choose .info? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:17, 8 February 2010 (EST)
They say it seemed fitting for a wiki. And that its completely unregulated. And yes, anime will be covered as well. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 22:21, 8 February 2010 (EST)
Ah, the animes are kinda hard to find these days. Well I'll just fix up a few problems here and there, but nothing major. .info seems pretty weird, though.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

We'll find em ;) And, Steve, if its in my palce to ask, what were those edits to Sidebar2 and the Sidebar3? WHere will the alliance box be? Thanks --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 22:38, 8 February 2010 (EST)

SB3. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:44, 8 February 2010 (EST)
Well, I feel I shouldhelp you guys out, so I can probably find you the English episodes on YouTube that I know of.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Is it true?

I heard about this alliance between Zelda Wiki, Bulbapedia and Mario Wiki over on Bulbapedia. Is it true? Because if it is, it would be AWESOME. ZeroLatios 19:46, 15 February 2010 (EST)

To answer your question: Yes, it is. --Marcelagus (TCE)

Red link

Hi, Steve. I've been going around removing useless red links, and I found quite a few broken links in your archive. Could you remove them, please? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Sorry. I don't want to touch my archive. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:38, 24 February 2010 (EST)

Regarding the Table Button Proposal

It would be helpful if you told us if it is possible. Thnk you. LucariosAura (used to be specialk) 10:47, 24 February 2010 (EST)

Well it would need an extension. Even if there was one I probably wouldn't mess with it anyway. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:38, 24 February 2010 (EST)


we have great things about u and we want you to join us at VGH to help with articles and doing so involves $$$ the link to the site is down below as my name. it links to my user page on the site or u can reply on my talk page here as my user name is johnnylightning. if u help us with creating articles at VGH the reward is big $$$ Jonathan Smith

No thanks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:09, 11 March 2010 (EST)

Forum Problem

I changed my e-mail to my Gmail account, but I guess my Gmail account didn't accept the activation message and it was blocked as spam. In any case, could you please re-activate my account?

Ok. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:09, 11 March 2010 (EST)

Hi Steve!Can you please tell me how to make a talk archive?PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Move content to a new subpagge. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:15, 14 April 2010 (EDT)


Hi Steve. I come representing the Shroom Core Staff, and I wanted to ask you, is there a way we could put sitenotice to use again? I know it is used for extra ad space, but those can be moved to below the sidebar, or at the page bottom. Or perhaps use the sitenotice text below the ad? Thanks. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 15:55, 13 April 2010 (EDT)

We've been over this. Answer is the same, sorry. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:15, 14 April 2010 (EDT)
Ok. And do you think it would be possible to add a template for The 'Shroom on the main page? --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 17:20, 14 April 2010 (EDT)
You can look into taking over the "MarioWiki Community" box. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:01, 14 April 2010 (EDT)
Ok, thanks :) I will show you a draft before I add it. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 22:16, 14 April 2010 (EDT)


Hi!It's me again,can you tell me how many subpages a user has the right to create?PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

No number limit. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:34, 16 April 2010 (EDT)

Thanks man!PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

Some questions about dates

Hi Steve! I am doing some research about the wiki, and tehre are some dates I wanted to know, I hope you can tell them to me :)

  • WHen was the forum created?
  • When were DK Wiki, Yoshi Wiki and Wario WIki created?
  • When were they deleted?

I would really appreciate if you could tell me those dates :) --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 18:10, 11 May 2010 (EDT)

The forum is my join date October 15, 2006, 12:30:54 AM. Don't know the others. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:58, 11 May 2010 (EDT)
Ok, thanks :) I will get to investigate them. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 11:45, 12 May 2010 (EDT)


I'm pretty much new to this whole site, but I know you as the fellow who made the e-mail in sbemail #117. I also see you're the founder of the site. So I ask you, is there some way we can keep these annoying ads from appearing on the top, the right side, and the bottom of every page? The HR Wiki is ad-free, but why is the site not the same way?--Part Italian 01:11, 19 May 2010 (EDT)

The HRWiki is supported by donations. We tried that but it did not work, so we need ads. If you really don't like them, adblock is always an option. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:49, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
Ohhhh, now I understand. I guess the same thing goes for the other sites, like Bulbapedia. --Part Italian 01:27, 20 May 2010 (EDT)

Can you help me?

Hi, I want to know, can I have permission merge some of the Donkey Kong related info from here to the DK Wiki? This wiki has quite a lot of DK info compared to the DK Wiki's. I tried asking on the main page, but a user said I should consult you. HavocReaper48 19:21, 23 May 2010 (EDT)

You may use the articles for information, but we ask that you not copy our articles directly. It's beneficial to both sites to have original content. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:10, 23 May 2010 (EDT)

Dan-snk-classic.gif Thanks ! HavocReaper48 20:22, 23 May 2010 (EDT)


Could you create my page? --Toa11 14:48, 3 June 2010 (EDT)

Your user page? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:51, 3 June 2010 (EDT)

Moving ads

Hi Steve! Is it me, or do the ads now move when you scroll the page? This leaves a huge space at the end of pages (at least in my computer) --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:28, 4 June 2010 (EDT)

Space should be gone. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:30, 4 June 2010 (EDT)
Ok, thanks --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:33, 4 June 2010 (EDT)

MediaWiki Upgrade

Hello, I had originally posted this on the proposals page but I was directed to you. I just joined this wiki and am currently waiting for autoconfirmed to start editing Super Mario Galaxy 2 and I've noticed that this wiki is running on an extremely old version of MediaWiki. Upgrading to MediaWiki 1.15.4 would not take very long (no more than 20-30 minutes per server but more like 5 if you have only one server) and it would introduce several bugfixes and new features that would make MarioWiki run more smoothly. I have experience running MediaWiki sites and will gladly answer any questions. Additional upgrade information can be found on MediaWiki's Web Site. Alexfusco5 (talk)

Okay. Thanks for your concern. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:46, 5 June 2010 (EDT)


Steve? What's happening here? The wiki's words aren't visible and this morning, when I access this website, it says mario is not amused or something. Is there a problem?PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

I upgraded MediaWiki. If you run across any more problems report them too! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:00, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Now we can't see Japanese characters, and Fawfulfury65's name from the MarioWiki Community box on the Main Page is stuffed up. And the who's online thing... (This is not a complaint) Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC
Maybe the media wiki thing is the reason?PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

It definitely is. Japanese characters still work, but they need to be entered in again. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:16, 6 June 2010 (UTC)


Okay, there are two recent changes links on the left bar(or whatever it's called), and the who's online thing on recent change doesn't work. All I can say for now!PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

The new Who's Online thing is a link; click it for the list of people. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:30, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Japanese characters definitely do not work as of now. ??????????? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 08:04, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

They work, but they were all lost. For example, I fixed Shigeru Miyamoto. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:06, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Wait, Porplemontage, the Mario is not amused. thing is part of this thing right. I thought someone was trying to hack into my account! Thanks goodness, but anyways, it's looking good. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Yes. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:10, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

I can only see 3 question marks for Miyamoto's name. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 08:09, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

That sounds like a problem on your end. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:10, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Nope, it's not. It's the same here. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 08:13, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
They just showed up for me too after I saw the characters. I'll look into it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:28, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Check it again. If it works now then we need to use a Unicode Converter. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:48, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Hey, take a look at the top of the king boo article!PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png
Now I'm noticing some problems. I'll see if it's just for me, but can you check your userpage and everyone else reading this and can you see if the actions at the top (Userpage, Discussion, edit, etc...) and the boxes to the left (mario knowledge, navigation, search, etc...) are separated from, for example, the mario knowledge box appears at the top of my page, but everything else appears at the bottom. ANd Ralphan's sig is screwing up. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
That was a problem with the userbox template. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:28, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
It didn't seem to fix it unfortunately. The stuff on the left appears on the bottom on my page. If you want, I can upload a picture of my problem. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Also, I think I found out the problem that I was having. I think it has something to do with the userbox tower that is screwing up my page, so if you can fix it, I'll greatly appreciate it. P.S. Sorry for my annoyance. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

You gotta close your tags! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:42, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, 2257 fixed it for me.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Also look here: Template:SSB Moves. And sorry for bothering you as well. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC
That template needs to be converted to the Javascript hider. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:48, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it's like that with every template that include those dots and can someone fix Ralphan's sig.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Hello Steve. Do all the distorted characters have to be replaced manually or is there a different solution for this issue? And if it has to be done manually, could a bot be used to fix at least the common problems (e.g. the aforementioned dots and "Pokémon"? --Grandy02 10:32, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Please replace them with unicode and then this shouldn't happen again. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:49, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing the problem. There is only one issue left, the version histories of the various Pokémon pages aren't accessible anymore (at least not for normal users). --Grandy02 21:13, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
This is fixable, but I'll wait until the site calms down a bit. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:19, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Page Protection

Um, hello. What's going on with the wiki? My page has shrunk, coding shows up, some writing on your talk page doesn't show, the advert stalks us, and the wiki crashes in the evening. Now I hear that all userpages are unprotected? Also there are the other problems noticed by other users here. And why does it turn into UTC when I use the 5 squiggly lines? Please can you sort it somehow, since you are the creator(thanks)? This is madness! 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 10:50, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Userpages are protected again but that was to help you with your code! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:49, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello Steve! Do you think you could post a list of changes somwehere so we know what has changed? Thanks! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 15:24, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Check out Wikipedia:MediaWiki release history. Anything after 1.10 is new for us. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:49, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Cool, thanks for upgrading, Steve! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 02:32, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, and thanks for upgrading! The who's online thing still isn't working properly along with the funny symbols on pages. Also, why are we in UTC? 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 16:25, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Who's Online works fine. If you're referring to the <whosonline></whosonline> code, the new code is {{:Special:WhosOnline}}. What funny symbols? And I didn't change anything regarding the time. I'm guessing that signature times are in UTC now so there's no need to adjust for time zones. All the live times can be offset in your preferences as usual. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:22, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

OK, thanks. Um, I think it's mainly Japanese characters, but some stuff on userpages had gone strange, e.g. Tucayo's sig. His talk link is TM, but is displayed as a square. 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 15:03, 9 June 2010 (UTC)


Another problem, the show/hide button doesn't work anymore.PM Dry Bones Holding Bone Sprite.pngCount Bonsula I need blood...Ml2 drybones.png

@Mr bones: Use this. You'll be happy ;)

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

The extension has been abandoned. It's a matter of converting everything to our Javascript method. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:49, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Special characters

Steve, since you were changing the Wiki, many special characters are screwed up. for example, look at my user page that uses many of them, and now they show other signs... Will be there a way to solve this? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Hmm, many sigs seem to be going haywire and someone's is making all the words invisible. --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Also, I cannot access the Mario and Luigi series pages due to problems with the ampersand. Do you know how to fix this?--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
They are fixed. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:58, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Okay, that's good.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!


Is the choose extension dead now? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 06:31, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Just added it back. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 06:41, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Upload by URL??

Hello Steve! Special:ListGroupRights says admins can upload images by URL. I had never heard of that... What is the link?? --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 20:28, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

The feature was disabled but you can use it now! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:41, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
Cool, thanks!! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 21:23, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
SOrry to ask so many questions, but I am getting used to the changes :P What is the new box in CheckUser, and how is it used? --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 22:01, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
Let's say a troll is making edits from multiple IPs. You enter them as a list and it will give you the appropriate range to block. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:20, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

About a Proposal

Hello Porplemontage. Could you check out this proposal and tell if the stuff proposed there is even possible? Because if not, the whole proposal is pretty pointless. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 20:45, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

It's possible and would simply require MediaWiki:Logouttext to be altered. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:52, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Recently, I've been seeing some words in various articles being "eaten" or getting cluttered by the pictures and infoboxes. Look at Prince Pikante and Black Jibberjay for example. Do you think there is any way to fix the problem or should we just leave it as is?--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

I don't see the issue. Post a screenshot/what browser are you using? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 06:55, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

After the recent update, I've been seeing a few advertisements covering parts of my userpage. Is there any way I can stop this from happening? Fawfulfury65

This is intentional. It is against the Adsense terms of service to cover the ads. A corresponding wiki rule has been added to reflect this. Something such as a status can be easily placed below the page title. Thank you for your cooperation. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:49, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Forums Problem

I've been trying to access the forums for over a month now. I don't know what's wrong. I've tried everything. I've asked foor more activation e-mails about 3 times now, I've tried re-registering (that didn't work because it said that my username was already in use).

I'm hoping this is just my comp (Windows XP), but the <showhide> template doesn't work. Not a major problem, but annoying. More importantly, iFrames isn't working, which could seriously f*** up the Awards polls (which open tomorrow). Could you please look into this?

Both these extensions were removed. Show/Hide can be done using JavaScript. If you create an HTML page with all the polls, I can upload it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:51, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Hey Steve, it's SilverYoshi95 here (after a name change). I'm just wondering if there's a way to hide the Google ads on the right of the page using my css, as they really get in the way. Or at least make my main section thinner, so the Google ads don't get in the way. Thanks =D レシイラムtalk 06:35, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

They should be to the side of the main section. You can make the main section thinner, though:

Reference/source link issues

After a few days of MarioWiki's mediawiki update - there are issues regarding the missing references. They don't show up in newer articles such as Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Mario Sports Mix when you're not logged in, while older articles like SSBB indeed show up. Please examine this. Any explanation? --RAP.pngRAP... 00:04, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

I noticed this too. Logged out users see a cached version of the page, and for some reason the list of references is not being cached. I'll continue to look into this; thanks for bringing it up. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:26, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for attempting to fix it, but the issue still partially exists. Check Food (merchandise) when not logged in. I recently did editing that involves reference tags. --RAP.pngRAP... 00:37, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Alright, I found a workaround to this bug. When logged out you may have to purge the cache of the page to see the references list. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 06:37, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Steven did you check the Navigation Templates because some of Templates won't let you hide some of the information list, here what i mean. Do you know whats the problem is? --Lindsay151 05:22, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

The problem is that some templates are still using the code for the Show/Hide extension, which we no longer support. These templates must be updated to use our "expandable" class. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:27, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Page views/Special:PopularPages

Shortly after the update of the MediaWiki version, the wiki still has the page views. After quite a while, I noticed that it disappeared from the bottom page. We can't tell how many views did articles received from being viewed by guests, and users - maybe even the Main Page (since we already reached 2 million views due to the release of SMG2). Any idea of how it happened? --RAP.pngRAP... 07:46, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Page view stats were removed to reduce stress on the server. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:48, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
Is there a way to privately see them, or is this final? Just simply curious. BTW - I didn't even know page views causes server stress.--RAP.pngRAP... 07:53, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
No, it's final. It causes server stress because guests see a cached HTML version of the page, so they don't pull the page content from the database. But the page counter has to access the database anyway, so it's an extra hit to the database. Multiply by all the guests and it makes a difference for something that is not crucial. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:05, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Bot for adding categories

Hello Steve. Is it possible to use a bot for adding a category to a large amount of pages? For example, I would like to add the "WarioWare: Twisted!

It would be very time-consuming to separately click all those microgame pages and their images. Could you program a bot to make this process easier? --Grandy02 15:13, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Image resizing issues

Steve, another problem regarding images. Most of the very small images I placed that I stretched was forced back into the original size. For example, this article. What I mean is we can't stretch the original images to make them larger (and so we don't have to reupload them in a larger image). Can you please check this out? This appears to be a big one that affects many small images that are supposed to be stretched into being large images (or medium). --RAP.pngRAP... 08:38, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

I don't think there's a setting to allow thumbnails larger than the original image. Yet they can be blown up without using a frame. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:47, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
That's just not right. :( Is there any way to get this type of feature back? Frame and stretch? (Good for saving bytes from downloading images normal size) --RAP.pngRAP... 04:22, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
They look much nicer if they're properly resized rather than just stretching the small images. But I guess the wiki only resizes down. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:12, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

YouTube videos

Back before the wiki upgraded, YouTube videos appear on when the box appears on the resolution monitor - and if you scroll down and such, more will appear. After the wiki upgrade however, YouTube videos all appear at once, slowing down the page drastically. Here is an example of what I'm talking about: User:DonkeyKongCountryRocks. Can you take a closer look at this problem (that I found once more... oo) --RAP.pngRAP... 23:07, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

No matter what, these videos are objects embedded into the HTML of the page. The wiki doesn't determine when to load information on the page and it doesn't know what your monitor resolution is. The YouTube embed extension did not change. In addition, that userpage has a ridiculous number of YouTube videos on it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:33, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

I don't want to change the image in the top left. But having an official "logo" for uses such as NIWA sounds good. Similar to how Zelda uses a different image on the NIWA hub than the image in their top left. I like my updated version on the right with the cap flipped.

Hi Porplemontage! I am WarioSuperstar and I am the brother of patroller Arend. I am not a user of this wiki, but I often help my brother and I regularly visit this website. I created both our current Super Mario Wiki logo and the red cap logo. I just wanted to say I am very happy the logo will indeed get used for something. This means people really like it. At first sight, the flipped version of the logo looked a bit weird, but that is just because I was used to the original version I created. Your flipped version is cool. Anyway, thank you for showing interest in my logos. Signed by WarioSuperstar, brother of Arend

You're welcome, but honestly both your logos are better than the original logo that I made for the wiki. Thank you for going out of your way to create them. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:59, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

The featured images are great! Why get rid of them entirely? I think it would be better if we kept them, but if you seriously wish for the wiki to fall, then it's your own problem. Personally, I don't want this wiki to be ruined, but that's only my opinion. If all the admins are rooting for the failure of this wiki, fine with me. I guess I can stay, but trust me, when this wiki starts crumbling down into ruins, I'm outta here!

Chat issues...

Hi Porple, this is Baby Mario Bloops. For the last month, I have been trying to figure out how to get on Chat, yet I have some issues. All the screen shows is this:

Welcome to the MarioWiki chat, open to everyone. Enjoy!

Your username on the chat will automatically be "WikiGuest" or "Guest###" with a random number. Use the "change nick to" box in the lower-right corner to change your name to your wiki username. If you are a guest, leave it as it is. For help, see Help:Chat.

I know that is natural for that to be shown, but after that is a big blank gray box followed by the Chatroom listing. I want to know if that is natural for that gray box to appear, but all I am trying to figure out is how to access chat. Whenever you have time to answer, as I know you are busy maintaining the wiki, I will be waiting. Baby Mario Bloops

In order to use the chat app on that page you need to have Java installed. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 06:45, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:34, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

I want to...

make a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki just like yours but I don't know how. Can you tell me which website or program you used for this website. I also need a list of what you did to make this website. Please tell me. I really don't want to make the wiki on Wikia. PLEASE do it!!! User: Weegee fan Numba' 1 (talk)

Find some hosting on a web server, get a domain, and install MediaWiki. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 05:56, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Image summary

Can you remove ":" from "Licensing:" when it comes to uploading future images? There have been uploads that have that text since the wiki upgraded, like this one: Link. Optional: Remove spacing from header "Summary" and "Licensing". --RAP.pngRAP... 18:43, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

If the ":" is removed, then it is also removed from the file upload page, but that's no good either because then Licensing is the only option without a colon. This is actually fixed in the new version of MediaWiki, so I'll remove the colon from both for now and then when we upgrade both will be correct. The spacing is actually the recommended way of doing business. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:25, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Shroombox header in Main Page

Hi Steve! I tried to fix this, but I couldn't... The background for the Shroom header in the Main Page is white, and so is the text, so it can't be read unless you highlight it. Thanks :) --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 20:39, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

August 10th

Hey, I noticed the Mario Wiki image has some balloons and party stuff in there, so I'm assuming it's Mario Wiki's birthday or something. Oh well. Happy Mario Wiki birthday, Mario Wiki creator (a.k.a. Porplemontage/Steve) :) ! ...if it really is its birthday... Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC

New extension

Hi Porple, can you do you a favor and install a new extension? I asked a NIWA staff member to write an extension that finds duplicate files within filenames, and finds them in different filenames. This will benefit staff users from manually searching for every file in the database to delete duplicates. Here is the link to the topic. Thanks. --RAP.pngRAP... 04:20, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, uhh, okay. You got two (or four) Special:SimilarImages. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 04:32, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

The extension doesn't seem to be working. Can you uninstall it? Justin will find out what's the problem. --RAP.pngRAP... 02:06, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Block template glitch

umm... On the block template, for some people, it says, (the following is just an example)

User talk: MonsterMoth

See the block log.

[Block log]:

User: MonsterMoth:


User talk: Monster Moth

See the Moth block log.

[Block log]:

User: Monster:

And it messes up! Sorry for such a big example, but could you fix this?

Hi Steve! Other sysops and me have discussed this in the Staff boards, and we thought it would be good for the wiki to have an autopatrol rank. But of course, we need you to approve it and create it. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 19:56, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

I put you in a Userpedia story of mine wothout permission. I'm asking you waaaay late. Sigh. Well, better late than never, right? Well, you're a pretty major character in the story, so if you didn't want to be in it, I'd have to erase it, I guess. So, is it okay if I keep going with you in it?

Pikmin Wiki

Hey, Purplemontage! Its Peanut64, the Co-Leader of Pikminfanon. Instead of, It would be Pikipedia. Its the better name for it. ~~Peanut64~~ (I don't have a sig)

Hey Porple! Could you go to MarioWiki:Poll and change the totalvotes parameter of SolarBlaze's poll from whatever it currently is to 5,222? The total vote is that but it appears whoever archived it just used the previous poll's total vote parameter. Thx! Marioguy1 (talk)

To Steve, from a nobody.

Finally, it's good to meet you, Steve. My name is Flame-o, you don't know me. I come from one of the holes in this wiki, a hole that is unknown to you. I joined this place in 2006, and am always tactical with what I do. I have a proposal for you that you probably will say no to: [User:Glitz_Hawk|Glitz Hawk] and I own our own wikia site (if you don't know, Wikia is another wiki that you can branch your own wikis off of). We are scraping for users to join, as this will give us a good start to our website, and we are at a loss as to how else we can gain users. I personally strive to get the site working, but Glitz used the idea of another wikia as a backup to help (and now he's ditched the original). Could you please help a fellow Wiki-owner and share some of your users with me? They have many ways of contacting me: The wikia: our Youtube page: My first wikia account: my original Youtube page: my original Newgrounds account: our e-mail: OR my original e-mail: and more. Please help us out.

If you want to know: here are the current Scorch the Hawk (youtube group) users on your wiki: Flame-o sig pic.PNGFlame-o I Now Haunt This Wiki. ... = Myself, Scorch A. GlitzSig.PNGGlitz Hawk = Scorch B. Zeldafan22sig.PNGZeldafan22 = Dharak1

Hi, Steve! I know DaisyRox02 already asked you this, but I also have a Userpedia fanfic, and I used you in it. Is it okay if I keep you in it (You and me are basically the main characters). In it, every one kind of looks up to you. Sorry for the bother! Oh, and I know every one says this, but I think this is probably the best website EVER, and it was all because of you. It's true!
