Recent edits[edit]

Hey. We don't update the latest appearance until the game in question is released. So I ask you to stop doing so. Yoshi876 (talk)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop updating latest appearance incorrectly, even after being told on the Super Mario Wiki. This isn't a warning, and it's possible that you made a mistake by accident or without realizing it; this is simply a reminder for your information. If the action continues, then a warning will be issued. Thanks for reading and keep contributing.
If this reminder was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

As I said above, we do not update the latest appearance until the game is released. If you continue to do so you will face warnings as well as a temporary ban. Yoshi876 (talk)

Uploads[edit]

I see you're having trouble getting the information correct on you pics, so here's some templates to help:

Hello, Seandwalsh. 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.

Hello, Seandwalsh. 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.

I don't know what you mean by "edit it back", but I corrected the information for you. Be sure to go over the templates during your next uploads so the correct information is filled in.
Also, I'll take this time to tell you that italics are meant for titles of games/publications/etc. only and not for character or location names. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:52, 5 October 2017 (EDT)

RE:Odyssey Question[edit]

Being an ultimate, big-time fan of Toadette for over three years now, I think that it's VERY fitting of Toadette's personality. Also, this isn't the first time Toadette was seen as an "archivist"; she showed similar traits in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 21:25, 26 October 2017 (EDT)

Say "Aye"[edit]

Hey, just an FYI, the phrase is "Those in favor say Aye", not "I". ("Those opposed say Nay"). That's all.

Italics[edit]

Hello! When writing game titles, please remember to always italicize them by placing two apostrophes on either side of the title. Thanks! --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 12:16, 2 November 2017 (EDT)

"You"[edit]

Just letting you know that you should avoid the use of "you" in articles, instead writing in third-person terms such as "the player" or using the character name. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:12, 25 January 2018 (EST)

Oh shoot, sorry Alex! I know the rules about the usage of you in articles and it just slipped my mind. I'm sick at the moment so probably wasn't thinking. Sorry about that. --Seandwalsh (talk) 10:32, 25 January 2018 (EST)
No worries, hope you get better soon! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:37, 25 January 2018 (EST)
Thanks! --Seandwalsh (talk) 11:25, 25 January 2018 (EST)

RE:Peachette[edit]

Personally, I don't think it's that bad, just that Toadette's abilities are copying those of another character's. Also, the Mario franchise is no stranger to characters copying other characters' abilities; Super Mario 64 DS, for example, has Mario's Cap, Luigi's Cap, and Wario's Cap, which the player can collect to make their current character appear and behave like the character that normally wears said cap. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 08:13, 14 September 2018 (EDT)

I’m aware of the Caps from Super Mario 64 DS. This is different however. This ability is exclusive to Toadette and instead of turning her into peach it makes he some sort of Peach/Toadette hybrid. Besides the power-up that I believe the direct called a “Super Crown” in the direct isn’t Peach’s crown it looks completely different. If there’s an explanation as to why Toadette has this ability in game I might be a bit more accepting of it. How does this crown turn someone into Peach? If Mario or Luigi was to hypothetically pick up this power-up would they also become a Princess Peach hybrid? I like the Mario lore and when something like this comes along out of nowhere it kinda takes away from that for me. Anyway that’s my bit over. thanks for the reply! --Seandwalsh (talk) 08:48, 14 September 2018 (EDT)

Encyclopedia Super Mario Bros.[edit]

It was decided by the community that we are not citing the English Encyclopedia due to various uses of plagiarism. It has yet to enter the policy pages, but we're working on that. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:36, 1 November 2018 (EDT)

Ah, I’m sorry. I did notice that some names especially were taken directly from here. (As some conjectural and translated unofficial names made it in). It’s disgraceful that that happened. I wasn’t aware of it when I made the change to MIPS’ page

Gwarhar Lagoon resident[edit]

Hi, just letting you know that we usually keep the non-proper names in conjectural titles lowercase (like Peach's frying pan). Please generate consensus on the talk page before making a move like this again. Thanks! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 11:40, 14 November 2018 (EST)

Hm, I see. Is there a specific reason for non-proper nouns in conjectural article titles to be uncapitalised? Personally, I can’t see anything benefiting from this choice. --Seandwalsh (talk) 11:53, 14 November 2018 (EST)
The game doesn't actually call these characters by name, so "resident" is improper. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:57, 14 November 2018 (EST)
Even still, it is the title of the article. I don’t know about you guys, but I was taught from a very young age to always capitalise the first letter in each word in a title (unless said word is a “short” word). I would agree however that in the article itself, the word residents should not be capitalised. --Seandwalsh (talk) 12:08, 14 November 2018 (EST)
Talk to Porplemontage about it then. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 12:10, 14 November 2018 (EST)
This is to make sure it's known that it's generic and not proper. This isn't the title of a book in a bibliography. This is us linking to other small subjects within our own wiki. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:02, 14 November 2018 (EST)
