Can you change my username there to Kaptain K. Rool? My username there is Liamroche. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Looks like I changed it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:30, 27 February 2011 (EST)

Mario Games

DO you play Mario games? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

I sure do. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:40, 27 February 2011 (EST)


Why can't we ask for sysop powers? Also I have tagged some pages for deletion so will you please kindly delete it? Thx 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Because I'm sure a lot of people want to be a sysop, and the administration has better things to do than field all those requests. Being a good user gets you there; it's not something that you ask for and then receive. Also the images will be taken care of at some point; you don't need to notify me about them. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:21, 28 February 2011 (EST)
My apologies sir. I am just wondering why we can't ask. Even if I want to be one. I wont ask so I will work for it even if it will take like 2-3 years... 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
Why don't we have many sysops on here even if users such as BabyLuigiOnFire are good-faith users? That doesn't make much sense to me >-<. When will my sysop privilige time come? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
You're looking at it backwards. We don't make all good users sysops. Instead, when we decide to add a sysop, we choose a good user. Becoming a sysop is not something you should be concerned about at all. Your time may never come because you're already thinking about it too much. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:58, 4 March 2011 (EST)
OK then I'll wait for the time.... 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

ads are akervating

Hi steve, it's me again. when I try to look around mario wiki,ads and pop up unexpectively, and It's so akervating!!! Then they pop up in the words alone! can u help destroy these ads.PLEASE????!!!!! :'( MKDS Shy Guy Artwork.pngSUPERZ! SUPERZ.png my new sig?

They shouldn't "pop up" or cover anything. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:05, 2 March 2011 (EST)


Can you fix the Template:Affiliates plz. Thx 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px


I have done a mistake on this wiki seeing that I have put block templates all over the wiki on many banned users. Do you mind helping out doing it seeing that I am not a sysop. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Can we bring it back? --Knife (talk) 15:21, 6 March 2011 (EST)

It would only be visible to logged-in users. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:56, 6 March 2011 (EST)
That's fine. Could be useful for editing tips and policy changes.--Knife (talk) 23:43, 6 March 2011 (EST)
What does it do?

¡Feliz Navidad! PHOENIX (talkedits) 00:29, 7 March 2011 (EST)

It's just a message atop every page, and sysops use it to keep the community informed. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:32, 7 March 2011 (EST)
Alright, sounds good to me! :)

¡Feliz Navidad! PHOENIX (talkedits) 00:38, 7 March 2011 (EST)

P.S. - But if you don't mind me asking, what does he mean by "bring it back?"

¡Feliz Navidad! PHOENIX (talkedits) 00:54, 7 March 2011 (EST)

It was a feature originally, visible to users and guests, but was disabled due to guest caching. We still cache guest stuff; that's why it can be brought back for those logged-in. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:47, 7 March 2011 (EST)

Yo Steve

Cool new sitenotice feature. I would love to have that as a feature. What Mario games do you own? I can't list them all cuz there is too many. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

All the big releases beginning with the SNES. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:47, 7 March 2011 (EST)

Sitenotice suggestion

You can put "Did you know?" facts, "Mario & Nintendo News", latest proposals, featured articles, etc. with {{random}} template. Also, to make it easier, link a template from MediaWiki:Sitenotice (like {{Sitenotice}}). SWFlashSWFlash.svg

I hope the content will be more specific than main page stuff or random stuff. Can you explain how editing a template is easier than editing a MediaWiki page? I don't follow. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 12:55, 8 March 2011 (EST)
MediaWiki: Only sysops can edit it. Template: You can choose who can edit it. I've suggested the random stuff because there's barely anything to put in the sitenotice. SWFlashSWFlash.svg
It would be a sysop-only thing anyway, and I think it was used decently before we got rid of it. Every now and then sysops will ask for its return, so they must have something to say. I just don't want it to become the random fun fact at the top of the page. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:21, 8 March 2011 (EST)

What is that website about? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

My wiki network. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:41, 13 March 2011 (EDT)

Spam filter on Pikmin Fanon

Can you unblock all of the "blacklisted" words on Pikmin Fanon? It turns out some of them are on valid pages (such as your talk page) and they are inaccessible now. Also, we are trying a different method now, so it won't affect the spam that much. Volatile Dweevil

Yeah. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:42, 14 March 2011 (EDT)

Mario Party 9

Why did you make this redirect? It seems useless because Nintendo didn't make any sequels in a while (since 2009, or 2007 for numberstream). They've released 3DS and they will more likely make a sequel for 3DS rather than Wii (and it will maybe then named Mario Party 3DS, rather than Mario Party 9). SWFlashSWFlash.svg

I guess I made it so if one searches MP9 they see the list of games to confirm there is no MP9 rather than getting the search results for MP9 which is really just a mess. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:39, 16 March 2011 (EDT)

Contribution Scores

Hi Steve; sorry to bug you with this. I recently just discovered the contribution scores page (yeah, it took me a while) and I realized that it's hard to find out what "position" you're in. If you're right in the middle of the table in, say, 25th, you have to count either down from 50 or up from 1 on the boxes to find out what specific "position" you're in. Is it at all possible that we could add numbers to the side to tell us that? Idk if that's possible or not; no biggie if it isn't. Thanks Steve!

Get a rough idea of your spot; it's not a crazy contest! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:39, 16 March 2011 (EDT)
Sorry. I'll be back with a good description in a minute. MarioSuperSluggersPianta.PNG Bowser's lumaParatroopa NSMB artwork.png
Here we go:


I was trying to say that it's hard to determine what number you are out of the top 50 and this would be a good idea to add. Of course, less crude and aligned with the table correctly, unlike mine. MarioSuperSluggersPianta.PNG Bowser's lumaParatroopa NSMB artwork.png

It's just to give you an idea of where you stand; we're not so competitive that we need to be comparing ranks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:16, 17 March 2011 (EDT)
I see. I had a feeling I was being to competitive. Sorry to bother you with this and I'll set the screenshot for deletion. MarioSuperSluggersPianta.PNG Bowser's lumaParatroopa NSMB artwork.png
No problem; thanks for the suggestion anyway! --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:47, 17 March 2011 (EDT)

MarioWiki:Image use policy

I want to fully rewrite that policy, can you unprotect it or do I have to show my sandbox page first? SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Thanks! SWFlashSWFlash.svg


Can you allow autoconfirmed users to edit others' userpages? I am asking because there are some images needed to be replaced and red links needed to be fixed. Thanks sir. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

It's a shame you're not a sysop or you could fix them. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:15, 18 March 2011 (EDT)
I know, but why only sysops? Users can fix red links too. BTW I did NOT sneak in to try to gain sysop powers. I was wondering if autoconfirmed users can do it as well. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
You would need to do a proposal on this. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:21, 18 March 2011 (EDT)
OK then. I am on it. BTW do you play Banjo-Kazooie games? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
I played the first two when they came out. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:46, 18 March 2011 (EDT)

How do I create a wiki like how you created MarioWiki? I want to create so I wonder how to create it. Do you know how to? Thanks... 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Go to the URL... that wiki already exists and it was created by one of our good friends. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 10:35, 20 March 2011 (EDT)

Plumber690 (talk) has placed a fake warning on my talk page. Please take action. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

He's also impersonating staff (MeritC). SWFlashSWFlash.svg


He seems like a good-faith editor. Do you think he deserves promotion (patroller)? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px P.S. Is recommending which other users who should deserve promotion against the rules?

Yeah, it's not necessary. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:19, 22 March 2011 (EDT)
Anyways, play Donkey Kong games? (I might've asked this one) 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
Yes... I have met the Donkey Kong. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:26, 22 March 2011 (EDT)
Like the Mario series, do you only have the major releases of the Donkey Kong series? I have almost all major ones, except Donkey Kong 64. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

I have the SNES games and DK64. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:36, 22 March 2011 (EDT)

How about Banjo-Kazooie series? I got Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge and Banjo-Pilot. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
I... already... told you... --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:19, 23 March 2011 (EDT)
I mean do you have Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie or was that just a trial/demo? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
I certainly own them. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:23, 23 March 2011 (EDT)
I am jealous. I don't have an N64. Why do you only have the major Mario releases? Why don't you get spinoffs like Mario Kart 64 (don't have) or Super Mario Kart (don't haver either)? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

I actually have all the Mario Kart games. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:37, 23 March 2011 (EDT)

All of them? I though only platformers were major games. Have Conker's Bad Fur Day? I don't and I can't because my mom won't allow it. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
I didn't say I only owned the major games. I don't have Conker. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 12:47, 23 March 2011 (EDT)

Unblocking users

I think you should unblock KoopaYoshi. I didn't think he impersonated to be mean. I think he was playing around on his friend's talk page. Check it out sir. Also I think the admins were a little hard on Mileycyrussoulja and TheUltimateKoopa so can you unblock them sir? Thanks... 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Erm... does Edofenrir really mean that I am bossing around people? I don't see that anywhere. I remember telling Cobold for doing his job wrong when protecting the Mario article, but I will stop. Do you really think that is bossy? I don't really seem to know if it is or not. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Why? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
It is a link to the admin discussion board on our forums. I left that link there for Porplemontage, so he can see that there has been a consensus about your warning. The place where that discussion happened is restricted to people with admin rights though, which is why the link appears broken to you. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 12:34, 25 March 2011 (EDT)
Um... why was there a consenus about my warning there? 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px
Stooben got it right on your talk page. I know you're just trying to help, but you need to focus less on talking to sysops and more on the encyclopedia. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 13:10, 25 March 2011 (EDT)
That is pretty much what I am doing. Focusing more on the encyclopedia and forgetting about this sysop thing, etc. 35pxKaptain K. Rool 30px

Main page MW:About link?

Hi, I was wondering if I could add a link to MarioWiki:About on the main page, in the "Welcome to the Mario Wiki" section after the "Help" link? Here's a mock-up. It was suggested on my proposal about removing spoiler templates by Bop1996 as a compromise for the folks who think that putting the replacement spoiler disclaimer on MW:About (as I proposed) is too out-of-the-way, and would rather have a warning directly on the main page. Regardless of the proposal, I think having a link to MW:About would be a good idea, but I wanted to check with you first. - Walkazo 22:01, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

I definitely don't want a spoiler warning on the main page. The About page really needs an entire rewrite. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:34, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
Thanks! I'm worried that people will still want another proposal to move the warning to the main page, but if you're dead-set agaisnt it, hopefully they'll reconsider and settle for the MW:About compromise. - Walkazo 14:33, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
It should go without saying that the wiki contains spoilers. We're an encyclopedia. Wikipedia has this, and we'll have the warning on the About page. You'll note that Wikipedia doesn't have a warning on its main page. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 14:39, 26 March 2011 (EDT)
My thoughts exactly (I even linked to that same Wikipedia page in one of my comments in my proposal). - Walkazo 15:02, 26 March 2011 (EDT)

Shutting down editing to DK Wiki?

I got told that one of the best ways to contact you is via talk page here or via forum. Another person is using the forum, so I'll have to request via talk. A vandal who can change his (or her) ip returned to DK Wiki, and we need help on getting rid of him (or her). Megatron1 11:21, 27 March 2011 (EDT)

Fix the last warning template.

When I put in this...

{{lastwarn|2=insulting other users}}

It becomes this.

This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize the Super Mario Wiki or break the rules in any way, you will be blocked from editing this site.

No changes at all. Please fix it.

Folding Box

Hey Steve, I've found and interesting feature from Bulbapedia and it's the feature to expand a box by passing the cursor over it. I should give the credit to the guy who made it, although I need a comment of yours if it's nice or not to implement in this wiki. I had to make within the MediaWiki:Common.css page because it's the only zone it works. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

You could have added it to Monobook.css but where do you want to use it? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:40, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

It could be used specially in the archives templates, like that of the proposals' archives. It may also serve to change the NIWA template of the main page and its extensive list of wikis. What do you think? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

It seems ok.. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:55, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

Excellent. I'll try to take the code to the Monobook.css to see if it can work there. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Got it. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:07, 2 April 2011 (EDT)

Wiki question

I have a question, if you wouldn't mind answering it...I was just wondering why wikis like this one or Wikipedia look so much different style-wise than like say The Banjo-Kazooie Wiki, or The Emperor's New Wiki, which seem to look distinctly different...

¡Feliz Navidad! PHOENIX (talkedits) 01:44, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

Well, a wiki can be customized to look like anything. Not all blogs look the same, not all wikis look the same, etc. We use Monobook, Wikipedia uses Vector--both of these skins are part of the default MediaWiki package. Wikia uses its own custom skin to give their wikis that distinct look. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 01:51, 3 April 2011 (EDT)
Okay, that makes sense... :)

¡Feliz Navidad! PHOENIX (talkedits) 01:55, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

Omg! Another unprotect!

Now it's Template:about. You can just copy that text below, the added text is red.

:''This article is about {{{1}}}. For information about {{{2}}}, see {{{3}}}.'' {{#if:{{{4|}}}|''For {{{4}}}, see {{{5}}}.}} {{#if:{{{6|}}}|For {{{6}}}, see {{{7}}}.''}} {{#if:{{{8|}}}|For {{{8}}}, see {{{9}}}.''}} {{#if:{{{10|}}}|For {{{10}}}, see {{{11}}}.''}} {{#if:{{{11|}}}|For {{{11}}}, see {{{12}}}.''}}<noinclude>[[Category:Notice Templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>


What page needs all these abouts? It's almost like... a disambiguation page would be more appropriate. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:26, 4 April 2011 (EDT)


Just out of curiosity, what's our stance in relation to the MarioWiki (which I just found out existed)?

¡Feliz Navidad! PHOENIX (talkedits) 00:54, 9 April 2011 (EDT)

Can you please provoke his rights on the NIWA DK Wiki. He is using it in a mean way to flame me, but I am the honest one telling him that he is doing wrong by ignoring me when I tell him to remove sitenotices on Wikia where he is a sysop on and he banned me for that!, but he blocks me for a bad reason so please unblock me (Slipknot Darkrai) there and provoke Omega Tyrant's rights for blocking me when I try to tell the truth. 35pxKaptain K.

Could we get the latest version, please? I think some of its new features would be useful. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 11:11, 14 April 2011 (EDT)

What are the new features? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:39, 16 April 2011 (EDT)
The ones I'm interested in are summarized under the "Grouped references" and "Separating references from text" headers. The former allows creation of multiple separated reference lists, which we could use to create footnotes (for example, on Badge). The latter allows the current kind of syntax, which looks like this:
'''Mario''' is a character first appearing as the protagonist of the arcade game ''[[Donkey Kong (game)|Donkey Kong]]'' released in 1981. <ref name=mario>[ Mario - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia]</ref> Since ''[[Mario Bros. (game)|Mario Bros.]]'', Mario has made numerous appearances as a main character in his own series of games, the [[Mario (series)|''Mario'' series]], and has become the mascot of [[Nintendo]]. <ref name=mario />
<references />
to be replaced with this:
'''Mario''' is a character first appearing as the protagonist of the arcade game ''[[Donkey Kong (game)|Donkey Kong]]'' released in 1981. <ref name=mario /> Since ''[[Mario Bros. (game)|Mario Bros.]]'', Mario has made numerous appearances as a main character in his own series of games, the [[Mario (series)|''Mario'' series]], and has become the mascot of [[Nintendo]]. <ref name=mario />
<ref name=mario>[ Mario - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia]</ref>
<references />
I think that having the second style as an option would be useful. Often, I've noticed that newer users who don't understand precisely how references work will delete the main tag that contains the actual reference data, because they believe it or the fact it's attached to not to be relevant anymore. However, they leave one or more dependent tags on the page, which creates an ugly looking error message. I think the newer syntax will reduce the incidence of this.
"Merging two texts into a single reference (wikisource issue)" is also a new feature, but it doesn't seem to me that it will be especially useful. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 22:08, 16 April 2011 (EDT)
I tried upgrading to both the trunk version and the 1.16 snapshot, but neither worked. The references lists were broken and pages couldn't be saved. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:54, 16 April 2011 (EDT)
Did you try version Cite-MW1.16-r62678? According to this more recent versions don't work correctly. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 10:56, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, that's the 1.16 snapshot version. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 11:32, 17 April 2011 (EDT)

I have to stop posting stupid questions

But once I've uploaded a video (Ogg Theora) to MarioWiki and it said "sh: /usr/bin/ffmpeg: No such file or directory". It looks like you're lacking some ffmpeg… The video can be watched there (and it should be noted that I can't split them to either gif or audio, it's impossible). SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Here're other uneditabe images (don't delete those ones): File:4-1 NSMB.jpg, File:Downtown1.jpg, File:TempleofHeaven MIM.png, File:TrampolineCN.jpg. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Also I've uploaded File:Copyright.svg, but I can't replace the image with this on this page and this page (both protected). SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Fine, but why is it so imperative that the image be swapped? Sure, PNG to SVG--which is just going to render the same PNG anyway. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:58, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
PNG is scaled with Bilinear rescaling, while SVG is just redraws to fit the square. SVG wins there. SWFlashSWFlash.svg
I know the difference. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 22:43, 18 April 2011 (EDT)

OK, I've uploaded slightly different images from Nuvola Apps. One, two, and three for this, this, and this, correspondingly. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

You haven't updated the last two I unprotected. Do you know why these SVG files work on here while others have those rasterization glitches? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 08:12, 20 April 2011 (EDT)

This guy gave me a warning for editing on archives. However, I was just reverting somebody's edits after they edited on the same archive. Does that deserve a warning? You reverted an edit on an archive, so did I really break a rule?

Our max image area is already more than double the MediaWiki default value.

Wikipedia has 10x larger file size limits and a whole lot of new file types. Comparee to Special:Upload and this image:

One hundred megabytes. It's enough to upload 720p videos with 60 FPS. I can't upload even 360p videos with 25 FPS. Not enough. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

New Layout

Now, I'm not trying to bash you, or the wiki, I love it. But I think it needs to be easier to navigate, not exactly getting to characters and items and different pages and stuff, I'm talking about making it easier for users to try and find out who are sysops or patroller are, in case they need to contact them immediately. I also think we should clean up the front page, maybe have less stuff on it or something, and also think about it from a new-comers point of view, the easiest way to navigate through this website. I don't know if i should put this in proposals or not, and I'm not trying to be mean to you or the wiki, im trying to make it easier for everyone who comes here, users or new-comers.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blue Koop Star (talk).

Hey Steve. I have a possible glitch find. When I look at my Editcount on my preferences, it is about 200 more edits than what it says on Editcount. Is this a glitch or something? Tadaa!2.gifSupremoTadaaa!.gif

No, that's normal. My guess would be that the preferences one doesn't decrement when an edit is deleted. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:49, 2 July 2011 (EDT)

New Idea

Hey again Steve! I have a new idea that I feel I don't want to propose without your approval. Wikipedia has the thing called Request for administration (RfA). This would be a much easier way of getting nominated to a sysop, or even such a patroller. The whole "community" could vote instead of the few administrators that talk about nominating or demoting a user. If approved by you, I think there should be 5 'crats, 15 sysops, and 8 patrollers. Oh, and by the way, this is not me asking to be nominated. It's an idea. Tadaa!2.gifSupremoTadaaa!.gif 21:14, 6 July 2011 (EDT)

It's got to be something all the admins want to do; I'm not going to force something like that on them. Since they haven't looked into creating a system like that as of yet, I'm guessing that they aren't too interested. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 21:20, 6 July 2011 (EDT)

If you don't mind...

Porplemontage, with the 6th Anniversary coming closer day by day, and being just barely over a month away from now, there is a lot of things going on that you are probably busy with. All I can to ask was - as the Awards Mafia is be promoted on Template:Announcement - if you could add [2] <-- this to it. Barely anyone has signed up for it, and I really would like to have this tournament to actually be done this year since we have never had a Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament before for the Wiki. If it is not too much trouble, could you help promote this tournament by putting it in that template? Baby Mario Bloops

Well, first thing is that I don't want there to be more than three lines on that template. Your thing could be merged-in, but I don't know if it's important enough to be added in the first place. So you have to talk to Awards-Sysop people. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 19:24, 11 July 2011 (EDT)


I don't know if it's against the rules to do this, but I think you should think about promoting Lindsay151 (talk). She is very active, makes very good edits, reverts vandalism and all of that stuff.

<gallery> tags

Hello Steve (Porplemontage) of MarioWiki,

Can you manually change the way <gallery> tags function by making having a row with 5 images instead of 4. It would be beneficial to all galleries without resorting to manually adding some code that makes the system do that. Plus with the ads at the right removed, you can properly see the page properly under the minimum screen resolution of 1024x768. I was asking 2257 if he can do it, but he said it's up to you to decide. Please respond. --RAP.pngRAP... 00:23, 24 July 2011 (EDT)

That was good of you to check the resolution, but the site needs to be optimized to 1024x768 for logged-out users who see the ads. So we really need to avoid using 5 for now; we can't have the ads blocking content for those users. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:35, 24 July 2011 (EDT)
Seriously? Hmmm...logging out and checking...and logging back in...alrighty, fair enough. Unfortunately, that means one of you guys have to check all the galleries and kill the "5 images in a row" code...unless... got an idea to workaround that! If you log in, the gallery will display 5 images in a row, when log out - it will revert back to 4 images in a row (because of the ads at the right). How 'bout that dude? XD --RAP.pngRAP... 00:49, 24 July 2011 (EDT)
Percentage width is the ideal solution. Well, 4 for now. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 02:24, 24 July 2011 (EDT)

Hello Steve. I was testing a bot on my local server using Pywikipediabot, and I was wondering if I could try it out here. See the admin board for more details. --Yoshario (Talk) 20:12, 29 July 2011 (EDT)

Well, I guess you can use it for broken and double redirects. We already welcome new users and mass replace text sounds a little risky right now. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:14, 29 July 2011 (EDT)
Okay. Do you want me to create a new account for it so it can be assigned bot privileges? --Yoshario (Talk) 23:15, 29 July 2011 (EDT)
Sure. How does it handle broken redirects? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 23:27, 29 July 2011 (EDT)
A Python script is ran from the terminal to go through broken redirects, and the bot places a delete tag on it. I might have to modify the source to make it place the MarioWiki delete tag, because the bot was written for Wikimedia. I could also try having it delete broken redirects if the bot could be granted sysop tools. On another note, could you provide me with the $wgScriptPath value on your LocalSettings.php? I'm messing around with the config file to try to get it to work and I think that could be of use to me. --Yoshario (Talk) 00:03, 30 July 2011 (EDT)
$wgScriptPath is an empty string: "" --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:05, 30 July 2011 (EDT)
I suspect the reason pywikipedia will not log me in is due to something before the <?php on your LocalSettings.php or any other file you edit. This may be visible, or may not be. If it is visible, you should erase it (unless you have some reason for having it there). If it isn't visible, it is probably a byte order mark. This suggests to take a text editor and to save LocalSettings.php over itself with "Unicode (UTF-8 Without signature) - Codepage 65001". If this is too much trouble, I understand. --Yoshario (Talk) 00:30, 30 July 2011 (EDT)

Yeah, I don't think it's worth the trouble to get into this. Thanks for the thought, anyway. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:32, 30 July 2011 (EDT)

No problem. --Yoshario (Talk) 00:36, 30 July 2011 (EDT)

Gallery Pages

  • I was kind of wondering about the gallery pages, and why you reduced them to displaying only four images per row. I can understand if a gallery section only has 16 images or less, but if we're talking about 16+ images, I would think that displaying 5 images per row would be fine. I'm probably guessing that you're doing this because not all computer users have widescreen monitors.
    Anyway, if you have the time, be sure to give me the story. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 08:25, 1 August 2011 (EDT)
    • You got the idea: we need to support a minimum resolution of 1024x768 for logged-out users, aka when advertisements are on the page. Five images per row is too wide in that case. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 17:26, 1 August 2011 (EDT)

Awepaterick. They're a sockpuppet of someone blocked on this Wiki. Heres the evidence: smashwiki:User talk:Patrickster WikiofSmash"It's called society, ever heard of it?" 19:43, 6 August 2011 (EDT)

Hey, Porple

What's your opinion on Nintendo's idea to use Capcom characters in the next Smash Bros. games? Someone you've never heard of

I'm open to Mega Man and some Resident Evil/Street Fighter characters in there. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:44, 8 August 2011 (EDT)
Nintendo vs. Capcom, eh Steve? (lol Eh! Steve) Magikrazy51 (talk)

Gallery tag

The gallery tag in MarioWiki and Wikipedia is different, here, take a look:

In Wikipedia's case, the perrow=* thing is not needed, the gallery enlarges to fit the screen. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Ours will do that too when we upgrade to 1.17 (sometime this month). --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 18:01, 11 August 2011 (EDT)

What the heck?!

When looking at Brandondorf's contributions a while back, I noticed that next to your username and (talk) (he reverted a edit you made)there was (Block)! Clicking on it said the action was limited to admins and patrollers, but still, what the heck?! WikiofSmash"The EarthBounder" 21:08, 11 August 2011 (EDT)

It's all under control. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 00:00, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

Happy 6th Birthday to your wiki. Thanks for making it. If not for you, would there be a Pirate Goomba? Magikrazy51 (talk)

Thanks! I'm not an expert on pirate goombas. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 07:38, 12 August 2011 (EDT)
I meant that you made the Super Mario Wiki where this nonsense started. Magikrazy51 (talk)

Pirate Goombas

I would love to rant on and on and on about pirate goombas, but don't know if they even EXIST. Happy 6th wiki year, though. Kirby694 10:51, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

Oh yeah, I'd like someone to talk about pirate goombas for me. Steve, can people post pirate goomba comments here? Kirby694 10:59, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

Thanks, Pirate Goomba. Just kidding, I mean Captain Goomba? --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 16:51, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

Can you create MarioWiki chat channels for GameSurge?

Mibbit doesn't work for people who use a Wii. WikiofSmash"The EarthBounder" 20:07, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

I don't own or manage the current channels. You can create one, but I would only make it the default if everyone moved over there. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:10, 12 August 2011 (EDT)
Should I make it a proposal?WikiofSmash"The EarthBounder" 20:14, 12 August 2011 (EDT)
Sure. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 20:15, 12 August 2011 (EDT)
Okay, I'll do it tommonrow. WikiofSmash"The EarthBounder" 20:21, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

Thumbnail issues

(It's about OGG videos) Recently, I've moved from online-convert tools and started using ffmpeg2theora to convert audio/video files to OGG. When I'm uploading a video to this site, its thumbnail is rendered weirdly. Example 1 and example 2. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

OK. I'm assuming the thumbnails are normal when you upload such a file to another wiki, say Wikipedia? I don't know how to fix this right now, so I'd personally ask you to use a tool which produces a desirable thumbnail on this wiki. Thanks. --Steve (talk) firefox_27x15.png 15:44, 14 August 2011 (EDT)

I Need Some Forum Sign-In Help...

I CANNOT EVER GET IN, NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TRY. Whenever i give an answer for the Are You Human?, It's never marked as "Right"

Why is this so?
