Welcome to my Talk Page!

The point of my Talk Page is to communicate with me, although that should've been obvious. You can also see previous discussions here. Please do not vanadalize, speak profanity, troll, etc. here.


Hello, Sparks! Thanks for your contributions. When writing titles for media like games, films, TV shows, and publications, please remember to italicize them. This is done by placing two straight apostrophes (not quotation marks or curly apostrophes) on both sides of the title, or clicking on the I icon above the text box and typing out the title. For example, typing out ''[[Super Mario Bros.]]'' generates Super Mario Bros.

Also, Super Effects like Fire (as well as "Super Effect" itself) are proper nouns and should be capitalised. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 21:29, November 25, 2022 (EST)

If you can't do this because your device uses curly apostrophes, you can change to straight apostrophes in your settings, or switch to desktop mode and click on the slanted "I" icon when typing game titles. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 23:07, November 25, 2022 (EST)

Just to clarify, it's two apostrophes on each side for game titles (italicising), and three on each side for the first mention of the subject in the article (bolding). Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 14:40, November 28, 2022 (EST)

Templates and categories[edit]

When creating new articles, you should put any relevant templates and categories at the bottom of the page, I would suggest looking at other Sparks of Hope related pages to see which ones. You can see these more easily by going into the editing page on the last section. Also, regarding adding a quote on the Stone Mask page, you can use Template:Quote2 to have the quote without automatic links and have Electroid pipe linked.

If you're making an article that's not reusing another article's layout and links, please remember to add categories to the articles on your own. Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 22:22, March 25, 2023 (EDT)


Nice work on the articles! Just a few things, avoid using the Sparks' name every time as it can get repetitive, and try to substitute it occasionally with pronouns (so "it", unless their genders are confirmed in-game), and be aware of how you're linking articles (Poison alone is ambiguous and links to the disambiguation page; Poison (status effect) is the RPG status effect, so the correct link should be: [[Poison (status effect)|Ooze]]).

Also, don't bold image captions or anything that isn't the title of the article (like "Midnite's Memory"). Rosalina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 06:23, December 24, 2022 (EST)

M+RSOH articles[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to say that you've done a great job with the M+RSOH pages (especially with the creation of the other Sparks). Keep it up! --Zootalo (talk) 18:08, December 1, 2022 (EST)

Replacement images[edit]

Just FYI, if you need to upload a new version of an existing image that's in the same image format, just click on the "Upload a new version of this file" link under "File history" on the existing file page rather than uploading separately. And if you need to rename, click on the "move" tab at the top of the file page (though you need to be on desktop mode to access it).

Beep-0 is written with a zero, not the letter O. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 13:40, December 14, 2022 (EST)

Message about tomorrow’s weather[edit]

Tomorrow I plan on covering more Darkmess Tentacle battles in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, starting with the Palette Prime ones, although there is going to be a very bad ice storm where I live. The power might go out, and I might be unable to create more pages while it’s out. Hopefully that won’t happen, I hope for the best conditions so that I can help out with more Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope pages. If I show no activity tomorrow, it’s because I lost power. link:User:Sparks Sparks link:User:Sparks Thursday, December 22, 21:42 (EST)

Italic title[edit]

When making pages which have the game as an identifier in the title, remember to put {{italic title|Article title (''game title'')}} at the top of the page so that the game is italicised in the title as well. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 11:58, January 25, 2023 (EST)

Oops. I forgot to do that when I made the lighthouse page earlier, as well as some others, sorry about that. I should always look to that when creating a page with the title in it. link:User:Sparks Sparks link:User:Sparks, Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 12:28 (EST)


Just wondering if you're planning to make the article for Glide as well? If so, the redirect page can be edited and turned into the Sparks of Hope article without creating an entirely new page, and it won't need an identifier either. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 16:50, March 25, 2023 (EDT)

Well, I added a lot of Glide information on the page, so I think it would be safe to say that it wouldn't be worth it to give Glide its own page. I suppose that Glide could just simply redirect to Team Jump (Mario + Rabbids). Although I didn't intend to add in the gliding, it seemed to make sense with it being linked into Team Jump.

Great work on the articles[edit]

Well done! ⭐ Spectrogram (talk) 01:08, April 11, 2023 (EDT)

Thank you so much! So much pressure is taken off now that all of the quests have articles. There's not much more to cover on Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, just a few more locations and other things and maybe some revisions.

Darkmess portal[edit]

A while back, I asked Porplemontage to run a bot changing the uppercase "p" to lowercase in Darkmess portal as the lowercase "p" is actually the official spelling used in-game (see the quote on top of the Darkmess portal article. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 19:36, September 6, 2023 (EDT)

Okay. I'm just so used to it being capital letters for both words. I'll make sure that's not the case going forward! link:User:Sparks Sparks link:User:Sparks 7:37 PM, September 6, 2023 (EST)

About my Snowball Yoshi proposal[edit]

The reason there was no comment section is that i was so focused on merging that i completely forgot about the comment section. I'd like to thank you for having fixed this for me. --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 13:32, December 1, 2023 (EST)
