Uploading Images[edit]

Hello, Prpro=03. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It is simple to learn how to correctly do so. Just search for the correct category by starting with the following groups:

Images Audio/Video Files

When uploading, copy the full title of the category with square brackets, and insert it into the summary text box (below the {{aboutfile}} template), replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. For example, files related to the game Super Mario World would use:

[[Category:Super Mario World Images]]
or
[[Category:Super Mario World Media Files]]

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Keep in mind some files can belong to multiple categories. Don't put images into media categories and vise-versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Hi, please make sure to not leave those lines for the description blank when uploading files. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:29, 5 July 2018 (EDT)

Hello! When adding the category, there should always be a game category, such as Category:Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Images. Also, the correct coding is [[Category:Super Smash Bros. Images]], rather than {{Category:Super Smash Bros. Images}}, as that would incorrectly transclude the category. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 17:48, 5 July 2018 (EDT)

Hello, Prpro=03. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly use the {{aboutfile}} template. What you were doing looks like this, and it is an inconvenience for other users to fix up the template. It is simple to learn how to format it correctly. The pre-loaded coding is shown below.

{{aboutfile
|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|3=Artist
|4=Describe edits, if any
|5=Other versions (use file link)
}}

Just replace the necessary parts with that corresponding information, and remove the entire line of the variable(s) you don't use. If you do not wish to use the template at all, then it is acceptable to simply remove it before you upload the file. Please consider the above information before uploading more files. If you continue using {{aboutfile}} incorrectly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

In addition to the {{aboutfile}} problems and the categorizing problems you were already warned for above, you also had the wrong licensing information. When you upload a screenshot of a game, it's always {{game-screenshot}} ("Video game screenshot" on the selection screen) no matter where it came from. In contrast, {{video-screenshot}} should only be used for video series that are exclusive to video-broadcasting sites, such as the case with File:Rescue V-Fearless Color Defenders.png. Thanks and keep on contributing! Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 20:04, 5 July 2018 (EDT)

Regarding reuploads, you have to clear the browser cache by pressing Ctrl + F5 to see the most recent upload. No need to upload a separate version of the image. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:36, 7 July 2018 (EDT)

Warning.svg
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior (misusing {{aboutfile}} / forgetting to categorise files) on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If this warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You've still been forgetting to categorise files and correctly filling out the {{aboutfile}} template. Please remember the above guidelines when uploading images. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:13, 9 August 2018 (EDT)

Lastwarn.svg
This is your last warning. The next time you break the rules in any way, you will be blocked from editing the Super Mario Wiki.
If this last warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You were warned about not filling out the aboutfile/removing it completely and categorizing literally yesterday. Continue to not do both and you will face a temporary block. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:44, 10 August 2018 (EDT)

It doesn't look like you quite got it, sorry. The text "aboutfile" should stay, and the category should replace {{uncategorized}} and linked properly as TheFlameChomp explained above. You can look at your previous uploads as examples to see how other users have done it for you, take your time reading through the instructions above step-by-step, and if you have any questions, just ask. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:41, 13 August 2018 (EDT)

The aboutfile on your recent upload was mostly correct (though it is unnecessary to keep variables if no information fits them). However, you are still using the incorrect coding for the category. Please follow the information I gave you previously, and also make sure to check your other uploads to see how people fixed the coding, as Mario jc said above. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 10:08, 3 September 2018 (EDT)

Images should also have their extension be lower-case, such as "png" rather than "PNG". Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:50, 9 September 2018 (EDT)

For your last two images, in addition to the extensions needing to be lowercase ("png" instead of "PNG"), you're still not getting the category links correct. It's not difficult; you just type "Category:" followed by image category's name (e.g. "Super Mario Party Images") in square brackets like a normal link. You're on a last warning and have been corrected on this multiple times, and while I don't think this warrants an immediate block, it might come to that if this happens again. Remember, the advice on your talk page (and other file pages) are always there if you're ever unsure. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:50, 8 October 2018 (EDT)

Please remember to upload with lowercase extensions. Just change the "PNG" part in the "Destination filename" field to "png" when uploading. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 08:58, April 18, 2019 (EDT)

Request[edit]

Hey how do I add a request with specific text?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Prpro=03 (talk).

What do you mean, exactly? Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 06:21, 10 July 2018 (EDT)

Mario Party 9[edit]

Most of the game's aesthetics are based on New Super Mario Bros. Wii, so there's really no need to mention that in every minigame. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:18, 3 August 2018 (EDT)

Italics[edit]

Please remember to italicise game (and series) titles as well, like Mario Party series and Mario Party 10. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 09:11, 6 August 2018 (EDT)

Just a heads up, though, italics won't work with quotation marks or curly (smart) apostrophes; they should be straight apostrophes. If you're using an iPhone, you can use them by holding the apostrophe key down and selecting it, or you can turn smart quotes off altogether by going to Settings > General > Keyboard > Smart Punctuation. Otherwise, you can simply click the I icon above the text box and type the name in. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:12, 8 August 2018 (EDT)

Smash 4[edit]

Please avoid using the term "Smash 4" (or "SSB4" etc.) to refer to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U on articles in the future, as it is a fan term and not official. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 03:26, 9 August 2018 (EDT)

A few tips[edit]

Hi. Just a few pointers on page creation for the future.

  • When creating a page, make sure to categorize it properly. For example, for Simon Belmont, place the text [[Category:Super Smash Bros. Ultimate]] underneath the rest of the page.
  • Also remember to place at the bottom of the page, one for each game the subject appears in. For Simon, {{SSBU}} should have been placed on the page.
  • When placing images, don't just place the raw image. Add the thumb parameter to the image link and maybe some text, like this: [[File:Simon Belmont SSBU.png|thumb|200px|Simon]] That results in the image to the right.
Simon
  • At the top of a character page, though, don't just put an image, put an infobox. There are several types. Some of them are: {{character-infobox}} (for general characters), {{SSB Infobox}} (for Smash Bros. characters), various enemy infoboxes (for RPG enemies), etc. I suggets you look at a few to learn how they work. They're all pretty similar.

Thanks for reading. Keep contributing!

Just wanted to remind you to include categories and navigation templates when creating articles, as stated above, as several of your recent page creations were still missing them. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 11:14, 21 October 2018 (EDT)

Super Mario Odyssey Pre-release and unused content[edit]

Can someone check to make sure I didn’t make any sort of errors in that section?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Prpro=03 (talk).

Found a few spelling errors, but other than that, it's good enough to split the section into the full subpage! Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:09, 17 August 2018 (EDT)

I found a website with a ton of Beta elements for Super Mario Odyssey (http://club.beta64.tv/2017/11/20/super-mario-odyssey/) should we use as many from this site as possible when we make a subpage?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Prpro=03 (talk).

Of course! Anything from early footage that's different from the final game goes. Just remember to cite them as references in the format outlined here. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 08:47, 18 August 2018 (EDT)
Also, remember to sign your comments with ~~~~, even on your own talk page. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 09:32, 18 August 2018 (EDT)

When adding images to this page should I put both the early image/screenshot alongside the final version’s or just the early one? Prpro=03 (talk) 09:50, 19 August 2018 (EDT)

That's up to you. If you want to compare them with {{multiple image}}, sure. If you're thinking about adding images in the gallery format, probably just the early images since galleries aren't really suited for comparisons. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 10:07, 19 August 2018 (EDT)

I could use some help with this page especially with finding images and listing the beta elements from the website i mentioned.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Prpro=03 (talk).

You could try searching "super mario odyssey e3 2017" on YouTube, then take a screenshot to crop out and upload here. I've tried it before and it works fine.
Additionally, as Mario jc reminded you for above, please remember to sign your posts, even those on your own talk page, with four consecutive tildes (~~~~) so that we know what comments you made. Thanks! Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 12:00, 20 August 2018 (EDT)

Incomplete info[edit]

It's bad practice to deliberately leave incomplete sentences or information for users to fill it in later, so please don't do that. If you don't know, just leave it out. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:01, 3 October 2018 (EDT)

Signature[edit]

You've been reminded for this multiple times already. Please remember to sign your comments with four tildes: ~~~~

Hey guys. Can someone explain the difference between using |example versus !example when making charts and when to use them properly? Thanks. PrPro03 (talk) 17:23, 16 October 2018 (EDT)PrPro=03PrPro03 (talk) 17:23, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Final reminder to remember to sign your comments, otherwise you may face a block, as you're on a last warning. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:13, 24 November 2018 (EST)

Columns vs. Rows[edit]

! will create a header View source

|- will indent to the next row it in action

Wii Fit?[edit]

Is it only me that noticed that Wii Fit Trainer's Final Smash isn't on the Final Smash page?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Prpro=03 (talk).

Citation[edit]

When adding information on upcoming games, especially lesser known info not found in high-publicity videos like the Direct, please try to source them using the referencing format. Failing to cite your edits may lead to them getting removed. That said, do you think you could provide a source for the Ice Climbers' new victory theme? Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:36, 10 November 2018 (EST)

Please follow the notice at the top of the article. Even if a game might be drawing closer to release or even nearly coming out, it's still upcoming so that shouldn't mean any information added should be left unsourced. I was lenient back with the Mario Maker 2 edits you made weeks prior to its release (since it was close to release and had gotten plenty of coverage online) but please start making it a habit of referencing upcoming content like other users are doing. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC

Keep MarioWiki:Citations#Multiple citations of the same source in mind when doing this. The first time you cite a source to be referenced multiple times, you type <ref name="Name">Source</ref>. The next time is simply <ref name="Name"/>, but it won't work unless you gave the original reference a name. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:03, October 4, 2019 (EDT)

Previewing edits[edit]

Hey, please remember to check your edits before leaving them (previewing them with "Show preview" helps too); there was a table error here that you wouldn't have missed if you had just looked over the edit, similar to another edit you made a month ago. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:39, 26 December 2018 (EST)

Signing Comments[edit]

It's not very hard at all. Simply type in four tildes. This is what a tilde looks like: ~ Mari0fan100 (talk) 20:47, 13 February 2019 (EST)

Contactions[edit]

Hello, contractions such as there's should not be used unless they are in things such as quotes, so for example there's would be there is. Thanks! Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 21:42, March 23, 2019 (EDT)

Capitalisation[edit]

Just to let you know, we don't capitalise words in header titles (except for the first word) if they're not proper nouns. So "Pre-Release and Unused Content" and "Debut Trailer" should just be "Pre-release and unused content" and "Debut trailer". Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:14, May 16, 2019 (EDT)

Additionally, when uploading files, use lowercase extensions (png over PNG, jpg over JPG). Trig - 11:45, August 31, 2019 (EDT)

Please read this again. Don't capitalise nouns that aren't proper nouns in section headers (like "Unlocking Criteria", which should be "Unlocking criteria"). I know games tend to do it, but we wikis don't. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 09:37, May 8, 2020 (EDT)

Best Buy Leak[edit]

Misinformation on retail sites gets put out almost all the time, so I wouldn't say Best Buy showing a blank Nintendo Switch Super Mario 3D World port page is anything noteworthy. I can't seem to find it by searching for it, so it must've been taken down pretty quickly. If a SM3DW port does get released, and you are able to show Best Buy's information, it can just be on Super Mario 3D World's page, or the port's page if it gets a separate one.

IP Ban[edit]

Thank goodness I was able to get this on my phone, but for some reason the IP address on my computer is banned from editing from something that happened and lifted over a year ago, so can someone look into this. PrPro03 (talk) 09:56, May 14, 2020 (EDT)

Tokyo 2020 Story Mode information[edit]

Hi, is there any chance I could ask you where you're getting your Tokyo 2020 Story Mode information from? I don't doubt your source or anything, I'm just curious about something. :) BBQ Turtle (talk) 12:58, May 15, 2020 (EDT)

Redirect links[edit]

Please ensure that the links for the Smash special moves without pages (i.e. the non-Mario moves) don't use redirect links; they should use section links. So [[Charge Shot]] should be [[Samus Aran#Charge Shot|Charge Shot]]. I can help with the ones already there, but for the ones to be added, keep this in mind. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:38, May 20, 2020 (EDT)

SSBU profiles[edit]

Just so you know, there's more discussion happening about whether or not to include unofficial descriptions for the SSBU fighters, so I'd suggest either holding off on writing more or at least taking it into account. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 13:40, May 31, 2020 (EDT)
