It's been too long

Er, sorry for taking forever to respond, but I've been insanely busy. I've been volunteering every Saturday, and I've had to do lots of projects, essays and presentations for school; we're into exams now, which means no homework, but tonnes of studying. I won't bore you with specifics about all my projects... though I know you'd like my art final: it's a dragon XD I've been spending all my little scraps of free time editing the Wiki so I don't get demoted for inactivity, but soon I'll be able to help out with the next big project I've set my sights on: deleting redundant templates :evil: I've already singled out my victims, and I'm gonna post the list on the forums tonight to get the rest of the Sysops' approval. You asked about Swine Flu... my mom's boss was in Mexico at the time, and he got sick soon after returning so we were a bit concerned, but it turned out to be nothing :o Happy belated birthday; too bad you didn't get all the images you wanted to upload, but you still uploaded and edited A LOT. I wish my Photoshop was working, then I could go around and remove watermarks like I've been dying to do. Talk to you later (but hopefully not too much later)! - Walkazo 22:56, 9 June 2009 (EDT)

Yeah, I wish I had joined the forums earlier, but I always made excuses to put it off <_> I have dreams that come true all the time; I actually had a dream that my Wiki account got hacked, and then 48 hours later Stooby's account was hacked! Again, sorry for not responding quickly - my friends in RL go for months without returning my phone calls, so I know how you feel... I am done my dragon, but it's still at school... My vision is for some templates to be species-specific (and other Mario-groupings), and then others will be huge templates that cover all the aspects of a game (i.e. {{SPP}}) - none of that ((Mario Strikers Characters)), ((Mario Strikers Cups)), ((Mario Strikers Items)) foolery. But I'm a long way from combining templates like those - oh no, I'm only good at deleting and then systematically replacing one thing for another and removing/adding things... For now ;D Cool; I didn't know about the DS successor. I actually like how this generation of Nintendo consoles is lasting so long; my family can't afford to keep up when they turnover every couple years. Today, I am pretty good. My calculus exam was bad, but my friend and I got to ride in the elevator and run around in the school basement with our English teacher, which we've never gotten to do before - and all because I wanted a copy of King Lear X3 - Walkazo 00:07, 10 June 2009 (EDT)

It's exam season, and since I don't have any exams today, I get to stay home! - Walkazo 13:45, 12 June 2009 (EDT)

I generally patrol during my Wiki breaks, but now I've finished checking most of the recent changes... Hmmm... what to do, what to do... Maybe I'll go downstairs and have a snack... - Walkazo 13:52, 12 June 2009 (EDT)

I have one more school-related project to finish (for Monday, hopefully) before I can turn my attention to the templates. However, today I did a little mini-project with CheckUser instead, with fairly successful results (check the admin forums - I made a new thread for it). And yes, I've seen your "Growth of the Summer" project - it's quite ambitious; whenever I make big summer plans they always come up short, so hopefully you'll have better luck with your endeavor. Also, Tucayo turned the PipeProject idea into an actual Proposal, so you should take a looksie. Well, I have rough drafts of projects on the go saved on my computer, and the History of my Template page is a fairly good record of all the proposals I've done, MarioWiki and Special talk pages also record my Wiki-meddling, as do the tonnes of notes lying around my computer. (One Post-It note lists Location Templates I singled out and destroyed; the results of the hated First English Name Proposal; a reminder to clean-up after two particularly irritating n00bs; notes about Angry Aztec and Pokey; and some scribbles I'm too tired to decipher at the moment (3:00 AM).) I also write notes on the kitchen calendar and keep all my old paperwork (so I have cancelled hand-drawn comic pages to laugh at too); but yeah, certainly your binder is much more organized than my mess *is envious* - Walkazo 02:59, 19 June 2009 (EDT)

TimeQ probably removed your Proposal vote because there's no "real" reason, and he'll revert it again unless you say "Per my ideas" or something like that. Just so you know. - Walkazo

No problem. I think whoever removes votes should tell the voter to recast them, but seeing as TimeQ does so much for the Proposals page, I don't hold it against him. *sigh* I have chronic bronchitis, so every month or two I get to spend two weeks coughing like mad too; it doesn't matter what time of the year it is. It's when you start horking up yellow/green stuff that you worry ;D Right now we're being spammed by Maria. I can tell who she is before she even does anything (if you read my forum thread, you'd understand how, but it's been ignored all week, and tonight's a perfect example of how my innovation works! So I'm plugging it on another thread). - Walkazo 01:44, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

Hi RAP. Sorry, I should have told you why I removed your vote. I tend to think that everybody checks the history of the proposals page regularly and thusly knows when and why their votes are removed, but obviously that's not true. I'll try and contact the users whenever I remove their votes from now on. But if I do forget it, I recommend you to check the history before voting again. And thanks Walkazo, that was my reason exactly ;) Time Questions 02:01, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

Ah yes, the lingering cough... There's no telling how long that will last. Yeah, I sometimes wonder how many of our recently created yet inactive accounts are just her, but I guess as long as they're not doing anything it's nothing to worry about. I could never get into editing other Wikis - I'm busy enough with this one, thank you very much. I saw your new topic; it's pretty sweet. I'm rarely left twiddling my thumbs because I obsessively patrol all recent mainspace changes (I think I'm the only one who actually marks things as patrolled as I go along <_<), and then I can always find neglected pages in need of gnomework when that runs out. And soon I'll pitch my Template plan, so that'll be a lot to do for both me and the other Sysops (if they're interested). My day's been pretty uneventful, which is a nice change. How about yours? - Walkazo 02:40, 29 June 2009 (EDT)

I take way to long to get back to you sometimes... Things always come up whenever I plan to talk to you, and before I know it, it's 3:00 AM by the time I'm done whatever anti-n00b cleanup project I got sucked into, and I'm too sleepy to continue the conversation. I'm so behind on many things, and in I'm stuck going on a trip to see my relatives soon, so I only have four days left to do a mountain of work (including choosing courses and setting up payment for University XO). I don't think we'll get anywhere with my IP stuff actually - all the information is the same for everybody - Trolls, Users and Sysops alike. Don't undervalue the power of gnomework - the more spacing, italicizing and coding issues I can fix, the less that will be made in the future (ugh, I just found out someone added the bad <br clear="all"> to about 80 pages, which means there's 80 more pages I'm gonna have to switch to <br clear=all> sometimes in the future -_-'). On the one hand, I like help on big projects, but on the other hand, I'm a zealous perfectionist and if people are gonna make mistakes that I'm gonna have go back and clean up, I sometimes feel like I should just do it all myself the first time around. That's why I'm so dedicated to editing the Wiki - it must be perfect. (And yet my parents won't believe me when I tell them I'm OCD...) I only kicked your arse because you went too far, too fast; as long as you don't go crossing my lines again, your butt will be spared the wrath of my sharp, pointed toenails. If you want motivation to keep editing the Wiki, try turning it into a competition, like back when you were trying to beat that image uploading record. Or if you really don't wanna edit anymore, retire: I don't want to spend my time editing Userpedia, so I've decided to not return there; as soon as I get around to telling the other 'crats, that will be that, and my problem will be solved. - Walkazo 00:12, 10 July 2009 (EDT)

No problem. And thanks, though the "good luck with your life" part makes it sound like you are leaving :o I suck at multi-tasking; I fixate on one thing, and don't do very much of anything else until it's done. Good for homework, bad for life. - Walkazo 02:30, 10 July 2009 (EDT)

Reply To The Welcome

Hey, YoshiKoopa (talk) here. Just wanted to thank you for the welcome and the help pages. And thanks for the page cleanup. I'm not that used to the page setups just yet.

Why did I join MarioWiki, you ask? Well I stumbled upon the website one day and thought,"Hey this is pretty cool," and added it to my favorite websites. Then I found myself visiting the site more and more and then thought,"Why not just join?" so that's what I did.

And about the image upload. It was just something I put together using Photoshop a couple months back and decided that this would be the proper place to upload it just to get it out there on the internet. When I uploaded it, though, it did say it was a very large file, so I tried shrinking it on Windows Photo Gallery, but the program wouldn't recognize the file, so then I decided to just try to upload it and when I did it showed up blank, probably due to the large file size, but I'm clueless as to what to do next to it to get it on here. If you've got any tips, I would appreciate it. - YoshiKoopa (talk)

Yeah, what ended up working was just saving the actual file again in a different format, which wasn't corrupt and it was smaller in size. So the pic is up. I just saved it over the old one and now everything works.

Now a Question about my signature. I want mine kinda like how yours is, just for mine the main page, talk, and contribs pages would be the different color coded parts of my signature, but there is nowhere in the help page that tells me how to do it. And do I want to be friends with you, why not? =D YoshiKoopa (talk · edits)

Oh, sorry about the headers. How's life? Well, pretty good. I've just been hanging around with friends and doing anything. Lately, I've gotten really bored with my Xbox 360, so I decided I'm gonna save up for a Nintendo DS, I'm excited for that. Have I ever played Spyro or Crash? Well a little bit waaaaaaaaaay back when. I never owned any, just played if friends had them. Those were mostly for Playstation, right? I grew up with an N64. If I remember any of the gameplay, the games were OK. YoshiKoopa (talk · edits)


Finally! An active admin! OK, this is my first time talking here so... I have a question about what I should do in the proposals section and in case I make a mistake, I need someone to blame it all on help me through it. Should I make a proposal titled:No more Logout message boxes? It proposes that the fake message boxes can no longer log a user out, just send them some where annoying. The other choice is to try to fit a discussion about that in the comments box under that thing. A third choice is to make a new voting section titled:Ban Loging out ones or something like that. Anyhow, you're the admin so you can handle that, see ya in 5min. Marioguy1 (talk)

Hey RAP...

...May you please protect this page right here? Thank you. · SMB (Talk) · 11:46, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

Thank you! · SMB (Talk) · 12:07, 17 July 2009 (EDT)


Please block the vandal Mario fan007 (talk)! He is replacing huge pages (I'm talking about pages like Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and even Mario). He is putting stress on the server and it is taking a long time to undo his work as he does more1 Thank you in advance... · SMB (Talk) · 23:35, 24 July 2009 (EDT)

Thank you for blocking the two vandals having their fun. I was starting to become overwhelmed, you blocked them at the perfect time. :) · SMB (Talk) · 00:10, 25 July 2009 (EDT)
Could you please rollback the latest revisions of: Mario, Princess Peach, Mario (franchise), Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Princess Daisy? Whenever one of us tries to undo them, the wiki's system times us out. Marioguy1 (talk)

Re: Welcome back

That Rocks & Gems Wiki? Or whatever it is. All I can think of is Bomberman when I think about your mysterious other Wiki. Pshaw, breaks are for losers hard-working contributors XP Well, I'm gonna try editing the Wiki faithfully, even though I have a fanfiction trilogy to complete, university paperwork to deal with, and lots of volunteer work in RL with teh birdies ^_^ Ah well, you know what they say: "no rest for the wicked." ;) Talk to you later! - Walkazo 23:32, 27 July 2009 (EDT)

Hey RAP, I', Shroobario, Princess Shroob is Jorge. He wanted me to go to #mariowiki and I didn't know why. I just went so he'd stop bugging me, and then I realized why when I got there. Gosh, why do I have to go through all this. Shrooby GreenDance.gif Talk

RE: Why hello!

Hi. Thank you for your comment :3 That patroller-thingy came completely out of nowhere. I would have never expected that. I am a great fan of the old games, so I guess it's only natural that alot of my work revolves around them. My current goal is to improve the Wario Land 2 article, so that it matches the game's quality. I rewrote the article one or two days ago, which tripled its size, but there's still much to do. I saw your topic at the forum, and the idea of more organized templates sounds very reasonable. If I can help you with something, just give the word. Hm... according to your signature, you're a fan of Lemmy Koopa. That's great because so we are both fans of the same family :3. And on your userpage is a picture of Hooktail, which is also one of the characters I like. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 22:49, 20 September 2009 (EDT)

Yes, I noticed Walkazo being a fan of King Bowser. I probably would have talked to her already (what I did once), but I'm not the most interesting fella around and not that good with talking to people. And as for your question: Unfortunately I'm not that proficient with wiki coding yet. I am probably not of much use for you, but if you come up with something that lil' old me can actually do, dont hesitate to ask. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 23:23, 20 September 2009 (EDT)
Perhaps I could help out with recolouring some of the templates? I already did that with my WL2 Template. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 01:12, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

Re: Me...!

Hi yourself. I was beginning to wonder if you had abandoned us for that Rocks and Gems place... University's okay, but it's gonna get a lot harder soon - and a lot more time-consuming once I start doing my homework for once :P Thanks for the suggestion, but you saw how long it took me to respond to your message: I have almost no free time, so even if I could, I wouldn't be cruising chatrooms atm. Sorry :( However, if you're cool with waiting days on end for responses, these sort of conversations work fine for me. - Walkazo 19:14, 22 September 2009 (EDT)

Yeah, I've been really busy. I had a Physics mid-term today, a Chemistry lab report and a pre-lab both due Friday, a Math quiz Thursday, a Sociology paper due tomorrow... Long story short: sorry, but I absolutely couldn't get back to you sooner, since every scrap of free time I dedicate entirely to mainspace editing and other Sysop duties (Stooben says I'm not getting fired anytime soon even if I'm not as active as before, but I still want to pull my own weight). Anyway, I can't check the forums or do any template stuff until Friday at the earliest - but when I do get around to it, I'll make it worth the wait :D In the meantime, save some of the deletions for me, okay? ^_^ I wanna help! - Walkazo 23:47, 6 October 2009 (EDT)

Re: *ahem*

Yes, I can do that. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 01:10, 30 September 2009 (EDT)

Super Mario 64 Spinning Heart

If you would like to see the image with your very own eyes, please locate a copy of "The Official Nintendo Player's Guide to Super Mario 64". This is where I scanned it from. Thank you. Have a nice day. Icysugarspike 13:23, 30 September 2009 (EDT)

Re: Hey

Thank you. Well in such a situation it doesn't matter if I can delete the edit from history or not. The only thing that matters is that these unpleasant images aren't seen by our guests, so merely reverting them is also necessary. We have a problem with the vandal's IP, as there is a strange match. Maybe you could come to the forum and check the situation. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 03:59, 11 October 2009 (EDT)


Heya, RAP. Haven't talked to you in a while either. Whatcha been up to? I can't think of any projects to give you; I only have one to work on myself, but it's all minethe only thing that'll keep me editing the wiki on a daily basis. (I've been having trouble finding things to edit too. :P) — Stooben Rooben 00:47, 12 October 2009 (EDT)

I have seen it, but I haven't had the gumption to come up with a decent response. Besides, I'm fairly certain I gave you my opinions on that page a long time ago. — Stooben Rooben 01:24, 12 October 2009 (EDT)

You deleted my userpage

Hello Rap, It looks like you deleted my userpage. This is not a sockpuppet account and I would like you to restore it please. My son and I both have accounts and this has happened to us in the past. Coincollector mistakenly blocked both our accounts many months ago. At that time we explain we were two family members with two separate accounts from the same address. We were told this was allowed. Please contact me if your policy has changed. Thank you for your help correcting this problem. BoygeyMom

Also delete...

Snoball. There's a cross through the o. It's a sock of Gadmosikano and C0rwin.



I went to forums and I saw your discussion about this matter. I wanted to know what were you doing but nobody replied in the moment :( I changed the size of the font a bit (12 to 13) because a text becomes almost unreadable when is fairly small and bold. Third thing I changed the width of the columns to 15% because I saw many of the templates using this measure. Since I was never informed about these changes, maybe I never reverted the edits of the users to templates :/ ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

The recent images you uploaded...

Okay, you need to tell me where you got those "big images" that you recently uploaded. PLEASE!!! :( --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Fan! User Page | Talk Page 21:05, 25 October 2009 (EDT)


Hey RAP, have you decided if you will be a guest writer just for one issue :D? --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 21:51, 25 October 2009 (EDT)


Are you finding these images you are uploading? FD09

Well I'll be keeping an eye out for any Daisy images you upload. ;) Also, how do you check how many you've uploaded? FD09


wanna be freinds? Mariodancingonblock.gifGamer2.1Hyperluigi.gif


Where did you get the Luigi art for MSOWG? FD09

uhm.. Is that a joke or something? I have yet to receive Daisy Wario or Waluigi art from Sega. I have nothing to thank them for. FD09

Please do! FD09

Yes, I found it just now and already looked. Are you saying that the art for these characters were at some point here??FD09

Proposal Help

Hey, I'm sure you saw how much I was working on the koopalings stuff, especially Lemmy. So it got me thinking. Wanna help me out with my proposal right now? It relates to the koopalings a lot considering they have appeared in so many other kinds of media than video games. It's for the idea of organizing the main biography sections better and it will make everything easier to sort through and look at. Tell me if you're interested in supporting it. :) FD09

I want to ask you where did you find the screenshots of NSMBwii, pleeease? Because I'm sorta intrigued why are you replacing the old ones... ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Nintendo has some up on their offical NSMBW website...--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Can you also block that moron IDidit.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Thanks. :) --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!


I didn't even add those categories; check the history. — Stooben Rooben 22:32, 12 November 2009 (EST)


Hi! I saw that you've changed some minor things in the Amy Rose-article (Category-template). I wonder what that means, I noticed you changed some '.
Greetings, Karinmij (talk) and sorry if it's a stupid question, I'm a bit of a nOOb with this :)


EXPLAIN WHY YOU MESSED UP MY PAGE! PeteyPiranhafliying.gifGalacticPeteyPeteyPiranhafliying.gif

That messeage didn't say why friend list was gone PeteyPiranhafliying.gifGalacticPeteyPeteyPiranhafliying.gif

Um, about the WLSI template, I think it was more organized the way I had it before, because it seems all jumbled up now.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Thank you, I like the new color scheme. :) --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!


You are currently ridding of infoboxes from userspaces. Does that include the Super Smash Bros one, because how is the User Brawl gonna work like that. Also, if I need to, I'll delete the infobox on my page.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Okay, thanks. :) --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Since you're deleting users (or just the corresponding pages?) as sort of a corollary clean-up, is there any sort of action to be taken in regards to the rather large user list full of obvious dead and spam accounts? Most are simply numbers, profanity, or some reference to sexual pills. Redstar 04:32, 27 November 2009 (EST)

Well I'm glad it's finally getting done. I'm currently working on re-writing most of the main articles to be cleaner, better written, and more to the point. Size has dropped considerably, which I feel is a good thing. I like a feeling of organization and cleanliness, so removing all those users would be a good thing, but at the same time tedious and probably minimal in the eyes of sysops. Redstar 04:45, 27 November 2009 (EST)
Interesting program. I'll have to look into it... Hopefully my suggestion is considered, but if not I can ignore the glaring red hyperlinks leading to spam names. :P Redstar 04:54, 27 November 2009 (EST)

Infobox Question

Is the infobox on my userpage ok? Or does it need to be deleted? Fawfulfury65

I'm unable to create articles

Whenever I try to create an article, this message shows up:

"This site has restricted the ability to create new pages. You can go back and edit an existing page, or log in or create an account."

How come I can't make articles? Right now, there's a bunch of articles that need to be made for WarioWare: Twisted!, and I'm the one who's making them.

Well, that sucks. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

That's what happened...

OH. Sorry about the infoboxes, a lot of other users had them, too. I actually didn't notice until now, though.

Explain THIS!!!

Why the crap did you mess up my USER PAGE!!!???? Look at M&SGs and think about it.--Travix M. 17:39, 4 December 2009 (EST)

Now that's mean, RAP. Nearly everybody here has fan stuff on their userpage and then you delete the fan stuff of a newbie. You should be ashamed of yourself. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

RAP, since u deleted my user page, I guess u'll just look around u. everyone else including M&SG has fan stuff on their pages. If u don't relize or look, u are SHAMED.


So what kind of DPL problems do we have that it had to be deactivated on my user page? (Not that it's the most used part of my page, I could care less, I just want to know what's up.) - Cobold (talk · contribs) 17:42, 4 December 2009 (EST)
