Oh! Hello there. If you may know me, my name is Ryan, or RAP (pronounced "rap") as my username. I may not be a 'crat anymore (and so does Cobold for a different reason), but that doesn't really stop me from continuing to manage the wiki. Today's world for the wiki there are a lot of things users should be doing, if you have the patience to spot the hidden errors of course. ;o For me, I think my userpage seriously needs a heck lot of cleaning up to do. That includes the sub-pages I still have laying under my control. All I need is to learn more about the wiki syntax so I can focus on better things... by better things I mean the userpage first. Patience my friend... all will be updated soon. If you want to talk to me, go ahead! Talk, rant, question, concerns, etc. I respond to these messages most of the time. Remember that. ;o


Did you see this template: {{UnusedX}} on here? It means not to DELETE or TAMPER with the file, which you just did. But it's ok, mistakes happen. C???

Rap, We have a problem. Willy on Bells is here. I was looking at info on Mario and I went to my userpage and under the Who's her section i saw Willy on Bells You're the only Beaureacrat here at the moment, So you might have to block him quick.

Lemme guess...Inactiveness?

Sorry about you demotion, buddy. I'm sure that you will get it back though... (I'll persuade Cobold ;) )

Life's just not fair, is it?

Thanks, I really appreciate the comment. Bust-a-Move, eh? Yeah, I've played that one. It was a pretty cool puzzle game. Right now, I'm playing Guitar Hero: World Tour while refreshing recent changes after each song. Yeah, I haven't been going into chat as much as I was, because my internet connection is very poor and tends to drop me from chat pretty often. It usually takes 10 minutes just to connect to chat, if I even do connect to chat. x_x — Stooben Rooben 00:01, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Yeah, I'm tapping into the library's connection, which is one block away from here. Our internet got shut off a while ago, along with the cable and phone. Not having a phone is kinda nice, since you don't have to worry about telemarketers, and no cable is peaceful too, since there was never anything on. Guitar Hero is AWESOME. I wouldn't recommend Guitar Hero III though; it has a lot of good songs, but the difficulty is through the roof. GH2 and GH World Tour (the newest one) have great songs, and the perfect difficulty. I've never gotten the chance to play a Call of Duty game though; are they only for the X-Box? I remember playing Crash and Spyro all the time back in the late 90s. They were a great way to pass time. I used to love playing the Namco Museum games too. Tetris? I never was good at that game; I usually made it through a few levels and either got bored or died. It looks pretty cool though. — Stooben Rooben 15:02, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Im fine

Yea, Im just gonna do what I can in these two weeks. Sorry to hear about your computer though. lol, are you seriously gonna do that much in less than 2 weeks? Sounds epic. Btw, what group drawing are you talking about? I never heard of a groupp drawing :O. C???

Lol, yea it takes a long time to rewrite articles. You gotta do alot of stuff. rofl beta testing xD. And about the group drawing thingy, well, I dunno. It's your choice on how you wanna do the little group photo, just do whats best for you :P. C???

PMTTYD Sprites

Hey, RAP. Do you know of a good place to get PMTTYD sprites like this one? — Stooben Rooben 23:30, 30 December 2008 (EST)

I remembered that they were in separate pieces, and luckily I have pieced them together before for a Userpedia game I was planning a few months back. I couldn't remember where they were though, so I thought I'd ask you. Thanks for replying; I'll keep looking around too. — Stooben Rooben I'd suggest rewrites, but that's only because I'm gonna be doing a lot of them. :D 20:55, 31 December 2008 (EST)
Oh! Yeah, I use Microsoft GIF Animator. It's free for download, and it's not a trial! It's really basic, but it works perfect for animating sprites. That's how I made all the GIFs that used to be on my userpage. ...Speaking of which, I need to work on my userpage some more. :O — Stooben Rooben 21:58, 31 December 2008 (EST)


RAP, I wanna ask you about the RAP's Mansion sprites that were on the Scribblewiki Userpedia. I was just wondering if I can use that as a "template". Basically, I'm just asking you if I can recolor and edit it for one of my own backgrounds. I'll credit you, I just wanted to ask you so I can make sure it's OK.Shadow Boshi 13:26, 9 January 2009 (EST)

Uh, sorry, but since my computer got taken away, and I can't find the image, it's not done. I'll do it on my sister's computer, and show you it if you can find it for me.Shadow Boshi 13:18, 11 January 2009 (EST)

Nvm, I got it from the Userpedia Forums. I'll show it to you once without the editing(just a recolor) and THEN the edits. But since they'd be personal images, I'll need someone to delete two of mine.Shadow Boshi 13:33, 11 January 2009 (EST)


Thanks for correcting all those mistakes in my user page, i had been wondering what was the problem with WarioWare: Touched! TucayoSig.png Thanks :)

Re: Hai!

Hey! It's been a while, though I guess the fault is partially mine: I'm notoriously bad at contacting my friends, even if I wanna talk to someone, they have to start it for me. It's one of the unusual things about me XP Things are going good for me, actually, which is a nice change. I've applied to university, finished my giant art project, and all my pets are doing okay (well, Iggy won't eat, but he's always a pain). I didn't get your message until today, but I was on late last night because I wanted to finish the Mario and Luigi's father/Papa move; it's not often I get to do big-ish projects, and I wanted to be thorough ^_^ It's too bad you're sorta alone on the Wiki now - I was feeling lonesome myself earlier, since DP left (or disappeared - I'm not sure what people are saying about it anymore). On the Wiki, I have a few projects I could take up next time I have some free time (like this past weekend), but nothing too spectacular. "Retro RAP", huh? It seems to me everyone becomes more fun when they have less power. DP once told me he became much nicer after his demotion, and I'm sure peope are saying all manner of nasty things about me for removing the "fun" from the old Referata Userpedia. Ah well, c'est la vie. - Walkazo 22:14, 18 January 2009 (EST)

Sorry for not responding faster - it's been a crazy, busy week! That's why I have that status bar, actually: I'd rather spend my free time editing the Wiki, as opposed to chit-chatting. These sort of conversations are fine though: they have more substance than "What are you doing?" "I just got a new game: Mystery Land" "Never heard of it." "It's cool: it has vampires." "Lol, epic." ... I'm just antisocial - I come to the Wiki all the time because it beats socializing in RL XP Yeah, those sorts of big lists do need work; I'm about to embark on another timeline project, so I just hope the Games by Date page is accurate :o I've been going back and forth between here and Wikipedia adding release dates to all the random NES games - it's shoking how many holes there are in our database! Yowza, good luck with all your images! - Walkazo 22:44, 23 January 2009 (EST)
That rots about the schedule changes. I've been patrolling, but there's not much editing for me to do either at the moment (I have too much schoolwork to take on any big projects during the week <_<). I think a rule/guidebook would be quite usefull: there's way too much ambiguity around here, IMO. Actually, I've always felt people overappreciate me - I'm really self-depreciative, so I never feel like I deserve kudos or attention, especially compared to a lot of people I know (this applies to RL as much as it does here). Right now, I'm fretting about deletion policies. I really want to delete a bunch of superfluous templates (all they do is repeat what's said in the SMG {{Galaxy}} template on a smaller scale (i.e. {{Gate}} or {{Fountain}})), but I don't think I should just go ahead and do it; however, there's quite a few of them, so I'd have to canvass all their talk pages or create a Proposal, and it's a little minor for that, I feel. I remember Coincollector deleted a template of mine without getting feedback first (though with good reasoning), so I wonder if if I could get away with it too... I dunno, I'm just WAY too scared of crossing lines... - Walkazo 22:36, 29 January 2009 (EST)

Sorry for not responding for SO long - I've been insanely busy (it's getting to be the story of my life <_<). I've edited the Wiki a couple times at school; the MWiki confuses my classmates when they see me editing. Yeah, I went ahead and deleted the templates, and no one freaked, so it's all good. There's gonna be a lot more template work now that that policy proposal passed - I can't wait! DP's not ignoring you personally: he left the entire Wiki... I think... He said he'd be gone a week and never came back, and that was in December... 'Tis a mystery. - Walkazo 23:11, 10 February 2009 (EST)

It sucks that you're having image problems. If it's any consolation, my pointer keeps going funny when I hold it over links; it works fine, but it looks really weird and I'm worried it's a sign that my computer's hard drive problems are spreading again :o Well, I have lots of stuff to keep my busy on the Wiki, mostly deleting templates in accordance with a proposal everyone else seems to have forgotten. Whenever I have free time at school I try to update the organization standards of the big articles I can't edit on my home computer. Wow, nice drawings; if I doodled on my algebra like that my teacher would behead me. I generally don't redraw the stuff I doodle in my agenda, but a lot of the time I'll redraw the same thing on a bunch of different pages until I get it just right. Nice inferiority complex you've got going there: welcome to my world. - Walkazo 23:31, 28 February 2009 (EST)
Yeah, having the rules spread out amongst countless Help and MarioWiki pages is bad enough without having to worry about all the archived Proposals too. Most users don't even pay attention to current Proposals; like that "First English Name" Proposal - hours after it passed and was being enacted people were asking what was going on and saying it was stupid: if they paid attention and voted it would've gone the other way! That's a big string of doodles you got there; my favorite part is still the little bits of math poking through the art: I find it funny (in a cosmic irony sorta way). I don't try to set records anymore; even if I'm above average I can never compete with the best-of-the-best and comparing myself to them just makes me feel depressed. - Walkazo 15:00, 7 March 2009 (EST)

Hey, thanks for catching that typo on my Userpage - I am ashamed for not finding it myself -_-' Anyway, I don't think you responded to my last message yet, but I just wanted to tell you that I uploaded a bunch of my sketches and things on another website; seeing as you've shown me your stuff, I'd thought I'd return the favour. Here's the gallery, hope you like it! - Walkazo (talk)

Funny you should say that - in RL, when people look at me for any length of time, I get the urge to kill them (or run away - I don't like being stared at X_x ). Bowselta's violent antisocial like me, so I'm quite happy my doodles of her were able to transmit that vibe. Ouch; one of my RL friends lost her USB Key too. If I weren't so swamped by homework, I'd help with the rules, but I guess I'll have to wait until summer <_> Between schoolwork and the wiki, I'm too busy to be bored; but on the odd chance I don't have anything to do, I generally browse through or play videogames (I while away SO many pointless hours digging in the Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum underground). - Walkazo 23:11, 10 April 2009 (EDT)
Our spring break was in March; I had to do homework every day and I still didn't finish everything I had hoped to finish. The work's still nuts now: yesterday I had zero hours of free time, and once I'm done archiving my talk page (meaning you're gonna have to make a new header when you respond) I have to go read for three hours (I generally like reading, but not when I have to take stupid notes for English class). University's gonna be just as horrible work-wise, but I'll still try to edit the Wiki as much as possible, and hopefully play a few more Mario games on the side. - Walkazo 18:28, 19 April 2009 (EDT)

I'm mainly asking you because 1) Stooben already has enough to deal with, and 2) You're smart and things.

So, I dunno if you've played Wario Land: Shake It or not, but I noticed there is no list of treasures or anything. Which of these options sounds wise...

1) Create a new section on the game article, listing all the names. 2) Briefly mention them on the game article, while linking to a separate article (which has yet to be created) such as "Treasure (Wario Land: Shake It)" or whatever you think sounds better, where I would have all the treasures' in-game descriptions, and I'd have to take screenshots of every one as none seem to exist on the internet yet :/ 3) Do nothing (be lazy) 4) Just have a list on the game article, no pictures. 5) Any other option you might think of...

Sorry to bombard you with all this, but you're a high-ranked User so you'll hopefully have a wise answer.

Oh crap, well... sorry for disturbing you. Can you recommend someone who I should ask the same question to?

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk Not Stooben, as I already gave him a massive one. A message, that is. th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png


Yo RAP, once again you upload images, this time with Super Mario RPG. I just wanna know, where are you taking those images from? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png Looks like you're taking them from a magazine, but that's only my guess... R you scanning these pics...?


What's wrong with that category? Transcript 02:26, 22 January 2009 (EST)

*zips lips*

Yo! Not much is up. Just using the new template I made. :D Whoa, it sounds like you've got an awesome project going. Is it something I can help with? — Stooben Rooben 15:46, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Would this suffice? — Stooben Rooben 15:57, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Hi, RAP. Please delete the article that Twentington made. Thank you. clay Mario (talk)

You're a hero, RAP! 24px Clay Mario 24px
YAY!! You put me in your edit summary! You made me feel SPECIAL!!!! You get a pretend sticker!! Clay Mario (talk)
Hi RAP. Can you please fix this up please? It might give a bad first impression on some guests and new users. Clay Mario (talk)
Well, its good that the visitors are still seeing the January version. It's like that we are in the future and they are from the past. (Thank you, cache) But anyway, do you want me to list down the stuff? I think I'll be pretty good at that. Or not? I just want a sysops permission before I edit a main page template. Clay Mario (talk)
Cool. I get to use my EMERGENCY POWERS like in Star Wars Episode II as long as you verify it. I tried googling "super mario" feburary, but all you get is some stupid blog posts. How about we write "Febuary 1- The day the MarioWiki became unprepared for the mario calendar" lol. Hopefully we can figure stuff out, and fast. Cache is cache, and it won't always be there to save us. --Clay Mario (talk)

Release date for Mario & Luigi RPG 3 Feb 11.

Look at this article Huh, Rap? Is it Good? Clay Mario (talk)

RAP? Hello? I'm gonna start yodeling...lolz Clay Mario (talk)

Raw Data

*walks back late* Sorry for the late reply; I'm losing track of my messages. XP Anyway, massive kudos on the raw data; I'll give you more links when I find them. :) I've been doing good; trying to keep up with wiki maintenance, all the while finishing up this; it's over 93kb! How've you been? — Stooben Rooben 10:38, 4 February 2009 (EST)

Hi, RAPstar. What's going on in the wiki! I'm starting to get bored because every single article I want to create is taken. When the Main Page says complete Mario series, they aren't kidding? So, any articles need to be fixed? I NEED SOMETHING TO KEEP ME OCCUPIED IN THE WIKI! :D --Clay Mario (talk)
I play alot of old skool mario games like the original Super Mario Bros., and are a BIG fan of Mario Kart Wii, and Super Smash Bros Brawl. But theres not much wrong with those articles. --Clay Mario (talk)
Any articles you need help with, RAP? Clay Mario (talk)
Okay, thanks RAP. Clay Mario (talk)
I created a history section for Mario Kart Wii. YAY!!! How do you like it? --Clay Mario (talk)
Response to edit summary: Yeah, but MKDS didn't feature like "as much" online play as MKWii. So anyway, do you like it? What can I improve on? I also created an article on Reggie Fils-Aime which I am going to expand upon and added a quote for Satoru Iwata. --Clay Mario (talk)
I know alot about game dev. I am an amateur coder and I can make computer games. game dev is like "mah thing", so I will be sure to pick up some interesting game dev facts like character design, coding, and all that stuff. --Clay Mario (talk)
I didn't give false info...I for real know how this stuff happens. I uploaded a picture from a scan of Nintendo Power of a game designer working on Super Mario 3. :D :D :D Clay Mario (talk)
Anyway, are you ever on the forums? I never really see you on the forums.... Clay Mario (talk)
Okay. And, did you see Image:Game designer.png yet? I know its a little low quality, but its a scan from a very old issue of Nintendo Power (I didnt scan it). We really need to get a template for scans of magazine like that. Ooooohh! I'll make one! Just need to tell Steve-O so he can put it up on Special:Upload. --Clay Mario (talk)
I hope I made the template right. Its template:Magazine-scan. What do you think? --Clay Mario (talk)
Is no one on chat now? --Clay Mario (talk)

Dang I'm so bad at replying. All work and no play... Anyways, that's a cool list of resources there, but I don't think I have much to add. A lot of my sources are non-internet based. -- Son of Suns (talk)

Delete Image

Hi there, do you think you could delete Image:Tayce T.png? I recently uploaded a pic with better quality and added it to Tayce T.'s article. Thanks.--Mistertrouble189 21:52, 15 February 2009 (EST)

  • Haha good timing. Also, do you know what the tag is to an image page that asks for a better pic with better quality than the current one? It was formerly on the Tayce T. image and I recall it being yellow.--Mistertrouble189 21:57, 16 February 2009 (EST)
  • Ah yes, thank you lol. I'll start adding the licenses to the images I uploaded which are pretty much all screenshots. Also, what about the images I took myself (for example: Stewart; they're not the greatest but hey, better than nothing)?

Small comment

Have you finished on uploading Super Mario RPG images? The last year, I've found an interesting picture of Mario teaming up with Bowser riding the Koopa King from Mario Kart Double Dash. It was unique, because it only appeared in a special edition collectible album from Nintendo Mexico. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png


Thanks for cleaning up my page. However, I did put the Fake News ad back in the white box to make it more noticeable and deleted the Photo Gallery because the images were too big.

Thanks for looking at my page Luigifan123Luigi parade.png

Partners in Time Data

Hey. I found an interesting page with a lot of data from Partners in Time, specifically the stats for all the enemies in the game as detailed by Interestingly, the stats for enemies are different between the two versions of the game. We could use this information to create a PiT Enemy profile box, just like the SMRPG one. Anyways, here's the link: [1]. -- Son of Suns (talk)

What do you need help with? I'm not very good at wiki coding, but I might be able to help. I'm also curious about these other "secrets"... -- Son of Suns (talk)

Rosalina artwork (Super Mario Galaxy)

INSANE! I haven't seen that artwork in question on the 'net in that size (unless I'm missing something). Care to tell me where you were able to obtain it? --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Fan! User Page | Talk Page 13:06, 11 March 2009 (EDT)


Yeah, the two SPM images came from the Official Nintendo Player's Guide. Icysugarspike 21:07, 24 March 2009 (EDT)


Hi! ^__^ click here: n__n Mauj.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif this isn't an artwork?......

What about GIF

Hi RAP, maybe you want to know if you wish to convert some 2-D screenshots or sprites you can convert them in GIF format, the color quality will not vary, similar to a PNG format picture, but is "smaller" compared to the info of a PNG picture. Resuming, you can save these images in GIF format too, with the advantage of getting less bits - or bytes to use :D ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Yeah, but as said first, you can use for 2 dimensional screenshots(GB, GBC, GBA, NES, SNES) - including sprites. I use imageready-photoshop to convert these type of pictures and even give some animations, like those animated sprites I got. Using this program you can chose the quality of the image and remove the "dithering" of the image when converting to GIF.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

RE: Artwork

I'm sorry, I don't have that link, I don't know from where my sister obtained that artwork :P Mauj.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif

9-Volt Image

Hello, you reuploaded the image 9-Volt WarioWare Twisted.png for reduced file size, but there are now yellow spots on 9-Volt's right shoes and a single yellow pixel on his left glove. Could you fix that, please? --Grandy02 07:12, 16 April 2009 (EDT)

Thanks, but the yellow pixel on his left glove (near the D-pad) is still there. ;-) --Grandy02 14:48, 17 April 2009 (EDT)
