From the Super Mario Wiki


True, Slamacow and DanTDM could probably be removed. The YouTube Poops are pretty much widespread memes that they were officially acknowledged by the show writers, ergo making it noteworthy. SRoMG is fan-created and has nothing officially substantial about it, so it doesn't belong on the page. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:30, 9 September 2018 (EDT)

Ah, okay. I'll remove Slamacow and DanTDM, along with SRoMG. I think the page should have guidelines, and we should at least set some obscurity limits.
Page is already asking for a rewrite, so yeah, it definitely needs some work... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:34, 9 September 2018 (EDT)
For starters, we should move "Super Mario Remaker" to the controversy page.
Not sure on that one. It's officially acknowledged, but it's not so much a controversy. It could probably also go on the Super Mario Maker page, but this sounds like a discussion to bring up on Talk:List of Mario references on the Web if you really want to work on this. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:50, 9 September 2018 (EDT)
Nah, I don't think I know enough about the majority of material on the page to work on it. The page is a mess, anyways, and it'd take a very long time to clean up.

File redirects[edit]

In case we don't get around to them, please remember to mark the redirect left behind after a file is moved with {{delete}}, to let the admins know it needs to be deleted. Thank you. Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:02, 26 September 2018 (EDT)

I understand. I wish there was just some way to turn off automatic file redirect creations. Scrooge200 (talk) 18:22, 26 September 2018 (EDT)
Unfortunately, only admins are able to do that. However, if you're doing them in bulk, I can understand going through and marking each one for deletion would be more tedious. In this case, if there's no admins around to delete them, you can just shoot one a message saying to check the move log. Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:49, 26 September 2018 (EDT)
You're right, I probably could do that. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.


Hi, would you mind reuploading File:Undergrunt.png so that it displays at least one Undergrunt? I reverted your previous reupload for that reason. Thanks! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 18:13, 1 October 2018 (EDT)

No problem. How does it look now. Scrooge200 (talk) 18:14, 1 October 2018 (EDT)

Re: Conversion[edit]

This site. Though I converted YouTube to MP3 and then to OGA. Mechanical Dirge (TalkCont) 22:30, 5 October 2018 (EDT)

You're welcome! Mechanical Dirge (TalkCont) 22:32, 5 October 2018 (EDT)


The images you're uploading of the WarioWare microgames seem to be larger than the system is able to put out. How are you capturing them? There doesn't seem to be a need to replace these images. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:35, 8 October 2018 (EDT)

Ah, yeah, they did need to be improved aside from maybe File:Tenderfoot.png. But is there a way you can match the proper resolution of 854 × 480 or maybe 640 × 480? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:41, 8 October 2018 (EDT)
As long as the pointer isn't obstructing anything, up to you :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:52, 8 October 2018 (EDT)
Looks good! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:58, 8 October 2018 (EDT)

Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

Not sure how much you should prioritize that, as when I'm finished with my school work, I'll continue ripping the SGB DKL sprites, and then move on to DKL2. I mean, go ahead if you want to, but they'll probably be replaced shortly. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:39, 17 October 2018 (EDT)

Mainbrace Mayhem[edit]

I really like what you did on the Mainbrace Mayhem page and I hope you will improve other pages this way as well, since Arctic Abyss and a couple others have already made the jump to change from what I see. However, I would suggest that you abandon adding info on where to find minor items such as Banana Coins and DK Barrels. It would be an incredible amount of work and would low-key set a new standard for other DKC level articles, and I find that the info isn't really in the interest of readers. Simply adding the number of each item in a level would do :) Otherwise, everything is alright -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 20:36, 5 November 2018 (EST)

Oh, it seems that Results May Vary (talk) is the one who started adding exact locations of minor items, starting with Pirate Panic. -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 20:38, 5 November 2018 (EST)
I am going to ask Results May Vary what they think should be done, as they are the one who began adding item locations on level pages, and you may decide what to do based on their answer. -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 20:29, 7 November 2018 (EST)
Welp, you heard 'em. -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 06:28, 8 November 2018 (EST)

Updating files[edit]

Before you do anything else, hit crtl + f5. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:54, 9 November 2018 (EST)

Yeah, it gets basically all of us. I uploaded 4 of the same on my first image update. That was the sprite for Fire Robota. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:01, 9 November 2018 (EST)

DKC2 Level Pages[edit]

Hi, if some details are missing from level articles (for example, the Banana count for Web Woods) is because my priority is merging content from the to-be-defunct DK Wiki, while also cleaning up the information that I shift over from there. Results May Vary (talk) 23:43, 12 November 2018 (EST)

Megabite in 3-4[edit]

Hey. I heard you saw a Megabite in 3-4. Was it in the castle entrance or was it the room with the AirMeows, cause I'm kind of confused.

--MadBird82Character.pngMadBird82 (talk) 18:31, 30 November 2018 (EDT)

Oh. I see... Then I'll just play the game on my Wii U to see if this is right. Besides, I never really saw any in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials.

--MadBird82Character.pngMadBird82 (talk) 18:41, 30 November 2018 (EDT)

I was right.

Music samples[edit]

Thanks for helping out with clipping the music files! If it's not too much trouble, do you think you could add a fade-out to the end of the samples? Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:27, 16 December 2018 (EST)

1-2 seconds should be fine. Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:29, 16 December 2018 (EST)
Perfect! Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:37, 16 December 2018 (EST)
If you have time, sure. I've gone ahead and already done the Hollijolli Village, Bowser's Castle and boss battle ones. No rush, though. Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:47, 16 December 2018 (EST)

File:PMTTYD_Betatheme2.oga still reads as the full file for me. May just be a problem with my own cache (and refreshing isn't working for some reason), but just checking, did you upload he wrong file? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:18, 28 December 2018 (EST)

Cool, thanks! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:27, 28 December 2018 (EST)

Green Flotsam[edit]

I have a feeling that that's a fan-edit from DKVine, myself, as they have a lot of those. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:11, 25 December 2018 (EST)

Many Thanks[edit]

Thanks again for helping with DK Wiki merge--and adding a BJAODN entry. Always appreciated around here Results May Vary (talk) 19:46, 8 February 2019 (EST)


SMS Art - Shadow Mario Sig.png

Dear Scrooge200,

Your current signature is in violation of one or more of the rules listed on MarioWiki:Signatures (image is too large). Please change your signature and keep the regulations and requirements in mind when creating future designs. If you have not made the appropriate changes within one week of receiving this notice, your signature will be changed for you.

Your image needs to be 35 pixels or less in height, not width (x35px). This isn't an official reminder, just a notice regarding your signature. Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:05, 17 February 2019 (EST)


You don't get to cancel for other voters, for all you know I was considering choice 1 still an alternative. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:07, 26 February 2019 (EST)


Yes, keep the black background, it's part of the tile. Its dimensions should be 16x32. Use the tile sheet to figure it out, it at least has the top half on there. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:26, March 24, 2019 (EDT)


If you can't do a sprite rip of the Bumpers from New Super Mario Bros., you should try talking to Baby Luigi (talk). She'll probably know how to rip it. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 11:22, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

Kirby images[edit]

We're not keeping images of every game version of Kirby's abilities, that was discussed here. Some were JPG to PNG, though, which I already talked to EDShoot (talk) about. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:11, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

RE: Spike the Piranha[edit]

See my summary here (EDIT: minus the first part). Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:21, April 3, 2019 (EDT)


Perhaps you didn't notice the paragraph on the Goonie page, but since you updated that image, it is no longer accurate. Therefore, I ask that you update it again, with the background Goonies on-screen, or upload a separate image for that job. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 06:04, April 10, 2019 (EDT)

Much better, thank you. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:56, April 15, 2019 (EDT)

Dolphin Emulator Tips and Tricks[edit]

I know I am late to this party but I can't help but notice your GameCube or Wii screenshots aren't as good as they can be. Compare your screenshot with mine in File:Beachcombing for Purple Coins.png. Essentially what Dolphin does is stretches the internal resolution to fit the given resolution of the window, even in fullscreen mode. It's faulty programming that has yet to see a proper fix (the developers partially fixed the problem but it is not fully fixed). This is a common problem that doesn't have an easy solution, but the solutions that do exist are better than default settings in Dolphin. 1x internal resolution is the default setting, and for Super Mario Galaxy, I found the internal resolution to be 640x456. So your image must have been in windowed mode maximized, and it stretched the 640x456 image to fit 1860x1016. That's why it looks so blocky. The easiest fix is to adjust the graphics settings and set the internal resolution to auto. You can also fiddle around with the window size to get the right resolution keeping the default settings, but that's more trouble than it is worth for mass replacement projects. Details here. Hope this helps. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:10, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

“When taking screenshots, note that some emulators can alter the display beyond what the actual hardware supports. Screenshots with a resolution close to that of the actual hardware are preferable, but upscaled shots are tolerated if there's no high-quality alternative available. However, video filters (such as 2xSal) and forced aspect ratio changes are not acceptable in any form.”
MarioWiki:Image use policy
That's what the policy states. It is possible and preferred to get 1x native quality screenshots, but the method is very convoluted and doesn't play nice with GCN and Wii games capable of widescreen. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:37, April 18, 2019 (EDT)
I mentioned it in my guide. I don't have all the available Mario/DK/Yoshi games for GCN/Wii. The listed games are what I own. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:42, April 18, 2019 (EDT)
It's best to go 4:3 for the Wii to achieve native screenshots (widescreen mode is just squished into 4:3 and then it is the TV's job to fix the incoming image to be 16:9) and make sure that aspect ratio is set to stretch. The resulting image should look like: File:SMG FFG Hot and Cold Planet Outer Surface.png This image is in 1x native. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 22:27, April 18, 2019 (EDT)
Technically, yes. Just don't give this 16:9 or 4:3 native resolution image too much thought. I did, but mostly as a footnote and out of sheer curiosity what was happening on a technical level. My info can easily become outdated if Dolphin's screenshot issues ever become permanently fixed. Then this conversation and guide's points are a moot point. Continue to supply above 1x native 16:9 images for the time being. That's what I have been doing lately.
Side note, right-clicking the title in Dolphin and selecting wiki will give a list of known issues with games. NSMBWii has a few graphical issues with above 1x native that are easily correctable. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 10:08, April 19, 2019 (EDT)
