'Tis about time, but welcome to the wiki! I hope you enjoy your stay. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:24, 10 May 2014 (EDT)


Great job on creating those articles. However, you leave empty "Names in other languages" sections, which make the article look unprofessional. If you are not aware of the foreign names, don't put the template in. Yoshi876 (talk)

"Luigi voice" Oh, sorry! SmashFan48 (talk) 15:27, 24 April 2015 (EDT)

Concerning some of your IP's[edit]

Hello! Due to a recent spike in vandals from a specific IP range, we are blocking said range. This range includes the IP's you used with your iPhone between April and August, but it shouldn't affect you at all if you're logged in. Still, if you happen to encounter any problems please let me know. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 23:40, 16 December 2015 (EST)

Ok I will. Thanks SmashFan48 (talk) 18:28, 17 December 2015 (EST)

Last Warning[edit]

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.

Blanking a page is absolutely unacceptable. Please do not do it again or you will face a block. JLuigi.pngJ-Luigi (talk) 15:29, 25 March 2016 (EDT)

I will stop if Birdo keeps being with the newcomers SmashFan48 (talk) 15:30, 25 March 2016 (EDT)

You're not winning that fight... - Reboot (talk) 20:23, 25 March 2016 (EDT)
Yeah. I've noticed....SmashFan48 (talk) 13:54, 29 March 2016 (EDT)

Image Category Reminder[edit]

Hello, SonicSpeed48. 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]]
[[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.

Your two recent uploads File:Dark Clown Cruiser.JPG and File:Dark Barrel Blaster.JPG were missing Category:Skylanders: SuperChargers Images. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 02:06, 28 May 2017 (EDT)

It's been over a year, but now your amiibo image lacked the necessary Category:Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Images. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:57, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
Ah, I see you've added yet more categories, meaning you've noticed. Never mind! Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:59, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
Still though, you should do all this stuff as you upload it, not in consecutive edits. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:14, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
I’m sorry, I’ll do better on that next time I upload an image. SmashFan48 (talk) 04:16, 20 June 2018 (EDT)


Just to let you know, we don't update character infoboxes appearances until after a game is released, which includes the artworks. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:56, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

^ This again. Returning fighters don't get the unreleased game in their infobox until after the game is released. New fighters do, as there's no other game to associate them with. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:41, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Fine, but can hidden placeholders work at least? SmashFan48 (talk) 19:39, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Eh... Nah, should wait til the game gets released. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:59, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Think of it like this: if the placeholders are there, and when the game eventually releases, it will only take a simple deletion of seven items instead of typing the whole thing out. It would be a lot less work for the one wanting to add Ultimate into their infoboxes. SmashFan48 (talk) 21:05, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Sure, or we could avoid the placeholder step altogether and just add the title once the game comes around without adding another edit to the history. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:09, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
That's the complete opposite of what I just said. Trust me, the placeholders will save a lot of work for the infoboxes of the 63+ veterans when the game does release. SmashFan48 (talk) 21:20, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Literally only a few seconds' worth of work. While I'm not against adding the placeholders, I really don't see any point in adding them either when it takes little to no more effort typing the full name out once the game releases. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:53, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
It's against all infobox rules. This one is no exception. Alex told you not to, so don't. We don't add appearances in infoboxes until the game is released. Hidden or otherwise. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:26, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Well excuse me for trying to help. SmashFan48 (talk) 23:28, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
"Helping" does not mean "doing what an admin has told you not to do." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:30, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
Fine, whatever you say, boss. But just so you know, that goes for the Original 12 as well. SmashFan48 (talk) 23:47, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
How I think of it is a character can't appear in a game that hasn't been released. We're not trying to make you mad or anything, we're trying to help you understand. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:10, 6 September 2018 (EDT)
Well you already failed in that prospect, that's for sure. >:( SmashFan48 (talk) 00:13, 6 September 2018 (EDT)
Sorry to hear that, but I hope you understand the point we were trying to make. You're not in trouble, this is just the policy we all have to follow. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:20, 6 September 2018 (EDT)

Image use[edit]

Hi. Thanks for uploading the SSBU amiibo images, but when you upload an image, please make sure it appears on at least one page. Thanks. BlueYoshiYoshisStory.png Yoshi Egg 1990 Red-yoshi-with-umbrella.jpg 08:07, 20 June 2018 (EDT)

Oh I’m getting to work on that right now, so don’t worry, they’ll be on the amiibo page soon! SmashFan48 (talk) 11:30, 20 June 2018 (EDT)

Special moves[edit]

Please do not designate the new characters' special moves until Nintendo actually confirms "(move) is (character)'s standard/side/etc. special move / Final Smash." Thanks. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:47, 16 August 2018 (EDT)

Tell that to the SmashWiki admins. Plus you can clearly see Chrom using Counter in the vs match between him, Lucina, Dark Samus, and Ridley. SmashFan48 (talk) 11:00, 23 August 2018 (EDT)
What SmashWiki does is of no concern to us. They literally have a fan-named article over the cloud platform from the Melee Yoshi's Story stage. Which I personally find to be rather silly. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 12:57, 23 August 2018 (EDT)

"Special moves" should also be lowercase. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:56, 5 September 2018 (EDT)


There's no need for this. Edits (even those by long-time users) are bound to be reverted a lot, so don't be discouraged if that happens every now and then. Just try to understand that we have rules and policies here that may or may not be different from other wikis, and as an encyclopedia we try to present information that's as accurate to the available source as possible and not based on speculation, especially when it comes to upcoming content. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:44, 14 September 2018 (EDT)

Yes, but it always feels like all of my edits get reverted, whether or not speculation comes into play. Not just some of them, ALL of them. And aren't you breaking that rule already by saying that Luigi's Mansion 3 "appears to be set in a hotel"? SmashFan48 (talk) 11:55, 14 September 2018 (EDT)
It's just the ones that go against the rules. Getting edits repeatedly reverted isn't something to be bummed about, it just means you need to learn from the mistakes and avoid doing such edits in the future, and through that you'll improve. As for the Luigi's Mansion 3 edit, that's inference, not speculation. It's evident from the interior like the numbered rooms, the janitor cart and Mario's suitcase. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:57, 15 September 2018 (EDT)

Moving files[edit]

When renaming files, please make sure all of the pages that link to the old name (labelled "(file redirect)" under "File usage" at the bottom, e.g. Mario Party 10 still links to File:Mario amiibo.png's old name) are fixed to the new name. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 04:52, 21 September 2018 (EDT)

Yeah I know, I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. I apologize, and I'll get to it right away! SmashFan48 (talk) 22:36, 21 September 2018 (EDT)
I already fixed the links and deleted the redirects. But perhaps as a heads-up, if you do something as large as this, make sure you have the time to do so. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:46, 21 September 2018 (EDT)

Furthermore, when you move a file, once all the links have been properly fixed, make sure you tag your redirects with {{delete}}. I've done it with the MKAGPDX files, but the rest of them are on you. If you need more help, take a visit on my userpage. Trig - 20:40, February 9, 2020 (EST)

^ Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:31, June 18, 2020 (EDT)
I know, I'm sorry. I must've forgotten about the other link in the MKT media page. My apologies. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 16:43, June 18, 2020 (EDT)

RE: Username change[edit]

Requests for name changes are made in MarioWiki:Changing username. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:45, 11 January 2019 (EST)


Thanks so much for making this edit; I tried to remove the false info in a previous edit, but somehow re-added it in the process of splitting off Triple Bananas and didn't realize it until now, so thanks for that! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 13:53, October 23, 2019 (EDT)

Anytime, man! SonicSpeed48 (talk) 15:49, October 23, 2019 (EDT)

Starting with Peachette?[edit]

Hi, could you elaborate on how a player could start with Peachette as their first character in Mario Kart Tour? And if so, do you happen to have a source for it? Since it seems to not be a well-known fact. MarioComix (talk) 01:44, November 5, 2019 (EST)

The first time I turned on my version of the game, after completing the tutorial, I was awarded Peachette. I can't really give proof, since I have almost everyone on the game's roster, but I know for sure I started with Peachette, no joke. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 16:51, November 5, 2019 (EST)
I wonder if there's any video footage online of someone else getting Peachette? Oh well. MarioComix (talk) 23:14, November 5, 2019 (EST)
Found one. [1] SonicSpeed48 (talk) 00:45, November 6, 2019 (EST)

Broken file links[edit]

Your last two tables had these. Please do not add broken file links for images that have not been uploaded yet until they are actually uploaded. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 05:12, December 18, 2019 (EST)

This again - I know they might be uploaded soon but please stop adding forced dead links to pages until they've been uploaded, otherwise I'll have to issue a reminder. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 05:02, February 12, 2020 (EST)

I meant to get to that last night, but I fell asleep before I even got the chance to upload them. I'll get them uploaded today, I can assure you that! SonicSpeed48 (talk) 11:30, February 12, 2020 (EST)


The Statistics sections on the Mario Kart Tour Kart pages should have two equals signs, not three. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 18:33, January 11, 2020 (EST)

Uploading images[edit]

Hi! It's great that you're uploading the images of the tracks from Mario Kart Tour, but if you do from a screenshot, please give me a list of which so that I know to replace them with sprites. Thanks! SwampyGatorMKT Icon KingBooLuigisMansion.pngLet's chat! 11:19, January 16, 2020 (EST)

Birdo profiles and statistics?[edit]

Hi, I noticed you reordered the List of Birdo profiles and statistics. Is there a particular reason for doing so? I was under the impression they were meant to be in chronological order, but I'm not sure. MarioComix (talk) 01:28, February 11, 2020 (EST)

Oh, I just reordered it on how I thought it looked better like: main Mario series, Mario Kart, Mario Sports, Mario Party, Smash Bros., and Mario RPG. Since the RPG games can take up a lot more space, I thought it'd look better at the bottom. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 01:39, February 11, 2020 (EST)
Well, generally we like to keep things chronological on the wiki, including main character pages and gallery pages. Because if we start allowing too much arbitrary ordering, then it opens the way for there being no real structure to the pages. MarioComix (talk) 01:59, February 11, 2020 (EST)

Regarding file renames[edit]

Move file first, then change the links, not the other way around. What you're doing leaves red links for an indeterminate amount of time. Also, please no moving files if they don't break any rules in the file naming policy. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:20, February 20, 2020 (EST)

Seconded. The files you are moving do not need to be renamed. Additionally, make sure you delete the redirects when moving a file using {{delete}}. You have been told this repeatedly before. For a fuller guide, see my userpage guide by clicking here. Trig - 08:08, February 20, 2020 (EST)

Baby Rosalina Tour?[edit]

Where did you even find it? I swear I searched everywhere for Mario Kart Tour-related sites and accounts and I didn't find such a thing. Gold Luigi (talk) 07:49, March 6, 2020 (EST)

Look on the app itself. If you don't have it, it's on the Mario Kart Tour Twitter. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 10:44, March 6, 2020 (EST)
Ah sorry, I don't have the app (my phone is too crappy to be compatible with it) and at the time I checked the Mario Kart Tour Twitter account, it wasn't announced. Well, at least they did announce it a few hours ago. Gold Luigi (talk) 11:42, March 6, 2020 (EST)

Edit sniping[edit]

This was very uncalled for. If you want to do a project for me, you should let me know first; otherwise that messes up my organization. You included the tweets in the exact same format I did, so there's no way you didn't know. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 11:02, March 19, 2020 (EDT)

That's the thing, I honestly didn't know that was a thing that was going to be done, I just wanted to help out. I'm sorry that I didn't notify you beforehand, but in my defense, I didn't even know those were made by you. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 13:13, March 19, 2020 (EDT)
That's ok, I understand now. I just thought you did know because the format you used matched mine. I suggest checking when something was added next time. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 13:41, March 19, 2020 (EDT)
I will next time, and it just matched because I like things being consistent with one another. Sorry for the confusion, man! SonicSpeed48 (talk) 13:59, March 19, 2020 (EDT)
Please stop edit sniping 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.

Even after this discussion, you're still doing it. Come on, we just went over this. If you really want to add the tweets, let me know, because adding them has been a project of mine I've consistently been doing. I just want to prevent conflict, OK? Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 12:26, March 24, 2020 (EDT)

Or I just stop trying to help altogether. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 15:54, March 24, 2020 (EDT)
Yeah. I'm not trying to be mean. I just thought you'd get the message after the first discussion. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 18:29, March 24, 2020 (EDT)
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior (edit sniping) 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.

Do you just want to take the whole project? This is the third time. If you want to help, let me know, because if I don't know, that messes up my organization when someone else goes in and does it. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 14:09, April 8, 2020 (EDT)

Cup links[edit]

Hi, next time you add a "Signature kart sets" section, be sure to correct the cup links in the images as well. Just FYI since the last few tours were like this and some users had to correct them later on. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:13, May 6, 2020 (EDT)

You did this again for the past two tours. Pay attention to the "link=" names as well. You're already changing the image links; you should also remember to change the clickable file links too. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:12, July 1, 2020 (EDT)

Mario Kart Twitter project[edit]

Hey, you've been on top of the Mario Kart Tour stuff more than me, so I was wondering if you could take over adding the tweets? I issued the warnings because you took over without my consent; you have my permission to take over now. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 13:04, May 7, 2020 (EDT)

You sure, man? I don't wanna take this project away from you. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 15:00, May 7, 2020 (EDT)
It's all right. Go ahead. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 19:21, May 7, 2020 (EDT)

I need a "yes" or a "no" on this. Do you want to add the tweets instead, or have me keep doing them? (I'd actually prefer the first option.) Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 15:32, May 10, 2020 (EDT)

Sh*t, sorry about that. Yes, I can go and add the tweets instead if that's what you'd like. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 19:29, May 10, 2020 (EDT)

Last warning[edit]

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.

I've already been through this twice now and you're still doing this. Stop adding file links with no actual files. Upload first, add later. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 06:49, May 20, 2020 (EDT)

Mario Kart Tour Twitter Images[edit]

Hey, so I noticed that we're both uploading images from the Mario Kart Tour Twitter. I personally don't mind the way we're both going about this, but for future, could you make uploading the image to the gallery page your first priority? It's the easiest way for me to check if the image has already been uploaded. Now, usually the Wiki lets me know if the image name is the same, or if the image has already been uploaded, but today it didn't lol. Now I'm going to go delete that duplicate lol MarioComix (talk) 18:12, May 22, 2020 (EDT)

Oh, alright then. Thanks for letting me know for next time! SonicSpeed48 (talk) 19:34, May 22, 2020 (EDT)

Mario Kart Tour pipes[edit]

Hey, can you not add pipes in the future to the tour pages? The Jungle Tour Pipe 2 just came out, and the percentages and some of the orders of the items were wrong. --PM Tweester Sprite.png It's Meester Tweester! 02:58, May 27, 2020 (EDT)

Oh, so you don't want me to ever add the pipes onto the tour pages again? Think I'll screw them over again? How presumptuous of you. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 03:15, May 27, 2020 (EDT)
I never said to not add the pipes ever again, you're using a strawman fallacy now. I said don't add pipes that are happening in the future. You added a future pipe, and you got it wrong. I didn't presume that, it already happened. I don't think adding in pipes in the future is a good idea since you could get the pipe info or percentages wrong, and that's exactly what happened here. Plus, if I never caught it, the wiki could have had it incorrect after the tour was over, so good thing I did catch it. --PM Tweester Sprite.png It's Meester Tweester! 01:04, May 28, 2020 (EDT)
That tone was also unnecessary. You shouldn't assume information based on previous tours. Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:12, May 28, 2020 (EDT)

Marine Tour Two Screenshots[edit]

Hey, just noticed you uploaded two screenshots for the Marine Tour, and that you obtained them from "Marine Tour dump". May I assume that these are from within the app? If so, I'll be removing them from the Twitter section of the gallery page since they would not be from the Mario Kart Tour Twitter account. MarioComix (talk) 20:22, July 13, 2020 (EDT)

You'd assume correctly, MarioComix. Go ahead. SonicSpeed48 (talk) 20:24, July 13, 2020 (EDT)
