Articles[edit]

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]

Lastwarn.svg
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)

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]]
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.

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)

Infoboxes[edit]

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. Ashley 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. Ashley 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. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:56, 5 September 2018 (EDT)

Editing[edit]

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. Ashley 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. Ashley 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. Ashley 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)
