Navigation templates / categories[edit]

Hello, thanks for creating those articles, though in the future, please keep in mind that they should have a navigation template and category at the bottom of the page (refer to MarioWiki:Manual of Style#Navigation templates and MarioWiki:Manual of Style#Categories). In the case of Walls for demolition, it should have:

{{WC}}
[[Category:Mario Objects]]
[[Category:Wrecking Crew]]

You can look at other similar articles to see which navigation templates and categories to use. Small Mario sprite from Super Mario Bros. Mario JC 06:20, January 11, 2021 (EST)

These articles you're creating would benefit with displaying images, so remember to add {{image}} at the top as well if there aren't any. Small Mario sprite from Super Mario Bros. Mario JC 20:42, January 13, 2021 (EST)

Uploads[edit]

Hello, Spectrogram. Good job on your recent uploads, but when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It's simple to learn how to 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. If you're using the upload function from the text editor, simply add the category link to the description. 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 that some files can belong to multiple categories. Do not put images into the media files category, or vice versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Hello, Spectrogram. 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.

Make sure to categorise the file and remove any parameters from the "aboutfile" template that you're not using (like "3=Artist"). Small Mario sprite from Super Mario Bros. Mario JC 05:32, January 3, 2022 (EST)
