RE: 'Crat

Wow. My thanks to you and to "the staff." So what are my new responsibilities? -- Son of Suns (talk)


Patroller Rank

  • Well this sure was surprising when I got word of this from you and Super-Yoshi. Just one question though. Does a Patroller get any new features or something? RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 08:44, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Image Errand

  • I was hoping that you can do me a favor. I was trying to upload an image onto the Mario Wiki, but due to the issue of not being able to save new edits, the image got corrupted.
    I was able to upload the image successfully after this incident was taken care of, but the file history section contains a lot of past uploads that I've done. All of them are pretty much corrupted, and I was hoping that you can delete the archived image revisions for me. After all, only Sysops can delete image revisions.
    Here's the image that I was hoping that you would go to and delete ALL the past uploads for that file name.

    RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 18:48, 13 January 2009 (EST)

  • Well at least you tried since Sysops and above are the only ones who can delete past image revisions. And since I'm only a Patroller, I don't have those privileges to be deleting image revisions yet. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 09:07, 15 January 2009 (EST)

Re: Err...

Nope, you didn't respond to my last comment. But that's okay: I figured you were too busy being a Bureaucrat of two Wikis and dealing with your RL situation (I have to deal with less than half of what you've got on your plate and I'm already swamped). Speaking of bureaucracy, can you send me the password to the 'Crat Board on the Userpedia forums, please? I didn't ask when you first changed my ranking because I figured I wasn't a real 'crat since Referata was inactive, but now that we're actually using it to a small extent, I have some valid 'crat concerns I'd like to talk to you guys about. - Walkazo 17:45, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Yeah, I try to get on at least once a day too; I was sick the other week and took a couple days off, and I missed SO much! :o How have I been? Well, I applied to university, which is exciting; and I saved one of my lizards from drowning today! He had fallen into his water bowl, and though he managed to get his face out of the water, he was really cold, and I shudder to think what would have happened if I had decided to NOT go downstairs just then and do my math homework. Yep, calculus now officially saves lives XD - Walkazo 22:47, 15 January 2009 (EST)
That's because the (extended) Super Mario Wiki is my life. I've tried having a Real Life life, but it stank; I still get together with friends and whatnot, but the social scene isn't my scene - I'd rather edit the MWiki. School's the reason I don't really post on the UP Forums - I just have time to check on the Sysop (and Crat) boards these days. I'm much better, though my nose is still runny <_< Yep, and now my dad's switched his water bowl, so he can't almost drown again :D We just started Calculus this week, so it's pretty easy at the moment; but I've got an English exam on Monday to keep me on my toes. - Walkazo 03:05, 17 January 2009 (EST)

A Review

Hello Stoob, recently I'm on a project for rewiting the entire Mario Kart Double Dash's article, and as a way to improve my english language learning too :) I need a review if the article is getting better than it's previous content (which was very poor certainly XP). Could you please see it and tell me how do you think? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Thanks Stoob for the review and thanks for telling me I'm doing a well job in my english improvement :]

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png The article is almost complete, and the nomination for a next featured article as this is close :D

Well, Dom has stopped talking to me (>;~;)>




YOUR TURN. □R.O.B. 128□ 11:49, 14 January 2009 (EST)

^ I Wouldn't Place Money on That... ^

Wow, you actually look at my Imidge of da Week? Awesome. This week's is pretty funny, I think.

Yep, the new Wario Land is very good. Definitely worth buying... if you have the money for it and are not saving up for something more awesome. (eg. DSi, or that new Mario and Luigi game...) So far I have done 100% of the levels, got 95% of the treasures, and done 85% of the Missions. I must 100% PWN this game to be satisfied.

Hey, I know that GBC game. I had the same game, but on GBA (never had a GBC). The GBA version sucked, it was all half-platformer, 5% RPG, 45% retarded. The GBC version was much better. Sadly, most game adaptations of movies (in this case, movies based on books) ... are crap. Because they make them as cash-ins (on every platform for that reason), not as good games to satisfy us gamers. I probably won't ever get Wi-Fi ;_;

That's... well, I found that a bit sad. You're very lucky to be the only one to get a present. And I feel guilty about worrying that I didn't get as much stuff this last year as previous Christmases, after hearing that your family got hardly anything. I'm glad it was relaxing for you. Relaxation is something I almost never experience.

The crazy fact book had a very similar layout to the Guinness Book of World Records. It's similar, but much more awesome.

Woot! My sig is finally 100% law-abiding. Trial and error, it seems (remember I once had a GIF...).

Oh, and I'm concerned about you being up so late on the Wiki. If your only time to get on here is that late, I admire your dedication to this place. But I hope your life doesn't stay so difficult that your only time for coming here is at a ridiculous time ;_;

Regarding R.O.B. 128

I have a big problem with some of R.O.B. 128's recent activity, specifically soliciting a few of the apparently female members of the wiki for their photographs (check out his recent contribs). This could be considered a form of sexual harrasment, and I think we need to warn him that such behavior is unacceptable. But I wanted to get your opinion on the whole issue before doing anything. -- Son of Suns (talk)

No "Holy Cr--" Header!? Disappointing.

So, maybe we have truly exhausted that long-running joke...

Yeah, funny signs are FTW. For example, the Sofa King sign... if you know about that one. (Google it)

Yeah, Wario is a weirdo but his games are more challenging than Mario's platformers, so that's pretty good.

Hey, I had PoA on GBA as well! That was a pretty good game. I totally spammed Wingardium Leviosa against those slug things, lol.

You know my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Well, that's a bad version of relaxation. Today and yesterday while doing some very boing Pokemon training (keep fighting the same foe hundreds of times for EXP), I suddenly got... The Feeling. That's when I put the DS down and almost fall asleep for a while. Also, living in Australia... the heat is exhausting. On Tuesday it was 41 degrees Celsius, with a minimum of 27 at night. Ever get that hot where you are? And my house has no air-conditioning...

Scot-free? O-o ... I'm missing something.

Well, I had insomnia from a very young age up until 12. It was cured over a few months by nightly listening to a hypnosis CD which uses "theta rhythm" in the background. I recommend hypnosis if you want to cure it... as I remember how much insomnia sucks.

Well, I don't know how you manage to stay awake in the day if you're up half the night, but it's up to you...

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk Are you going to speak to R.O.B 128 about that issue? th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png


Hey Stooben. I read your PM on the forums and tried to reply, but for some reason it didn't work. Whenever I hit the Preview button, there was no preview of my text. And my message wasn't sent either, when I hit the Send button. Am I too dumb to use a simple forum? :) Anyway, nothing important I wanted to say, just that I've been a member of the forums since I became a sysop, although I've never posted any message there... ;) Time Questions 06:29, 15 January 2009 (EST) (BTW, I really like the design of your user talk page. I mean the font and colors and stuff...)

cool, cool mountain

Hey Stooben. Long time no see. I kinda need your opinion on an article. With all the changes from SM64 and Sm64DS, some of the same star missions have a few differences. Now should that be mentioned under the origional level heading, Under the DS heading or in a trivia like section (like changes in the DS)? thanks Artwork of a Hammer Bro. from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.MCHammerBro.MC Ballyhoo and Big Top 08:41, 15 January 2009 (EST)

RE: Hooktail Castle

Yeah, I still feel like there is a lot to be said. Again, I feel like I am not learning anything about the castle. Here are some more specific recommendations:

Here's how I would order the article:

Intro first, of course. =P

Description section: this section would detail the physical features of the castle itself, including elements on the inside, kinda starting from the entrance. Rely on Goombella's tattles on the bottom of the page for inspiration; don't write like she does of course, but she does mention the castle's notable features. So what is the castle like? Well there is an exterior wall, then a moat and a drawbridge before actually reaching the castle, right? Goombella also says there is a garden, so maybe mention that as well. There are also a few dungeons, so mention that and the items in the dungeon (so move that info out of History into the Description section). She also mentions a great hall filled with many traps - briefly mention these traps (as they are likely covered in the walkthrough). There is also a treasure room - mention what is in the treasure room. Lastly mention Hooktail's lair at top of the final tower.

History section: this would explain the history of the castle, and does not need to be that long. Try to remove the speculation and just focus on what the game says, so people can decide for themselves (basically, get rid of that "it is unknown" stuff). Check out the Grifty article for some of the early history. There needs to be some backstory to the castle itslef, so the beginning would be something like this (feel free to adapt it if you want to; it's not very good but has a lot of the basics): "A thousand years before the events of PM:TTYD, the Shadow Queen emerged from the "dark beyond" and began a campaign of conquest across the world. WIth her armies, the Shadow Queen took over many lands and stole many valuable treasures from these countries, which she stored in her Palace of Shadow. The Shadow Queen created the Crystal Stars to contain the "essence of the heavens" in order to increase her already infathomable power. One Crystal Star was placed in each country to allow the Shadow Queen to exert her influence over the world. Hooktail Castle was built to hold one of these Crystal Stars, increasing the Shadow Queen's control over the Petal Meadows region.

Okay the next part gets tricky. Basically we need to describe how the Black Chest ended up in Hooktail Castle, as the chest is one of the heroes, I'm just not sure which one. Then we also need to describe how the Diamond Star ended up in the castle, if there is anything about that (did it simply end up in Hooktail's belly? - is there anything about that anywhere).

But after all that is covered, you can say something like: "Hooktail, one of the Shadow Queen's three dragon pets, eventually came to reside in the castle, possibly during the Shadow Queen's reign. She would use this castle as a base of operations for terrorizing the people of Petal Meadows and Petalburg for many years, perhaps even centruies. A few Petalburgers, inculding Koopley, have attempted to brave the castle and challenege Hooktail in order to stop her reign of terror. However, none have ever returned to Petalburg, presumably ending up as the Dull Bones strewn across the castle. That is, until Mario of the Mushroom Kingdom traveled to Petalburg in search of the Crystal Star in the region. He teamed up with Koopley's son Koops to brave the castle and challenge Hooktail in combat." This would leave off right before the next section, Walkthrough.

So essentially, the History section should have three paragraphs: Shadow Queen and the creation of the castle, the end of her reign and the scattering of the Crystal Stars (i.e. how did the Black Chest and Diamond Star get in Hooktail Castle), followed by Hooktail's reign of terror over the Petal Meadows region. -- Son of Suns (talk)

And the Description section really only needs to be like one solid paragraph. Some of the sentences could essentially be: Here's a notable room, and here's the notable stuff in it. But do what you gotta do. -- Son of Suns (talk) in total, I am looking for four good paragraphs, three in history, one in description, and that should be enough for me to remove my oppose vote. =) -- Son of Suns (talk)

you remember that one day when all the users couldn't edit? Well that day I was like 20 edits away from making 100 edits in a day, again, and then we couldn't edit and I was all "NOOO!" :( SJ derp :P

Oh, man, that sucks. D: Well, 80 is still freakin' awesome. :D — Stooben Rooben 00:32, 17 January 2009 (EST)
That's true. Anyway, maybe I can on Monday, since I don't have school. The only problem is that I have to do a bunch of reasearch on Benedict Arnold for my English class. :/ SJ derp :P
Do what I do: Edit and do homework at the same time. XD — Stooben Rooben 00:35, 17 January 2009 (EST)
I have 3 days. I'm sure it'll get done sometime. XD The only thing is I have to write a paper on it, and I don't know if I have to have paper done by Tuesday. :/ SJ derp :P
Well, let's just hope you have lots of time to edit. :D — Stooben Rooben 00:45, 17 January 2009 (EST)

Making Tables (no Wood needed)

I'd just like to know if you approve of my addition to the Help:Table article. I decided to add that because Ralphfan told me it didn't help him at all.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk Your status concerns me... th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

Heh, a mobile Sysop... awesome. And I've seen how much you're changing the Grubba article... impressive. Maybe I'll look at some other Help articles and see if they need improvement (but most of them are protected, I imagine...)

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk If I'm correct, you have insomnia again th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

Holy dude! I looked at the History of the Grubba page and it was practically dedicated to you. Excellent work. And your edits inspired me to edit some related articles.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk You handled the R.O.B 128 situation excellently th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

Crikey - you type fast :O. Lol, awesome sauce. So, what image are you trying to find? If you tell me, I'll try and help in the search.

I briefly glanced at several other Help articles, but I couldn't see anything that particularly needed fixing. Maybe I should save them to my computer and read them closely...

You know how it's nearly my birthday? Well, because of a certain event that happened today, I'm now not sure whether I will or won't be getting Wi-Fi (I should have eavesdropped on my parents, I used to do that a lot...)

It's late here (but presumably much later where you are), so I must be off, like a... *insert Dimentio-style simile*.

Fake News

Can you please bring back "Fake News" to The 'Shroom?


Since you are still director of fake news i'm looking into the obituaries article (if available still) -Retro

I Honestly Cannot Think of a Header...

Just a quick thing:

I was examining the list of Help pages again to find others needing improvement, and noticed that the link titled "What you shouldn't do in an article" links to the BJAODN. To me, that seems kinda weird and not helpful. IMO, the BJAODN is not at all an educational system to show what not to do (it's more likely to encourage people to create nonsense...), as I was expecting the link to be to a Help article, not a page of comedy.

So I ask you this: Should I start an actual Help page with actual info about what not to in an article. I'll only be able to start it, as I'm not good at writing from scratch, I prefer editing existing stuff.

It seems your insomnia is affecting you again... trust me, I know how much it sucks.

th_DimentioSigLeft.png Dom »» McTalk But it's sometimes useful... th_SMKDimentiobyStooben.png

(BTW, you have as much time as you need to reply to the above message)

OK, but... wouldn't be better to just start with the Help page, so then other Users who are better at writing from scratch can expand and make it good? Otherwise, if I have it as a subpage of mine, it's only for my own editing, which means it will kind of suck (I suck at writing articles).

Oh, and this is a bit random (forgot to write it above), but - I'm having my only 2 friends around for my birthday. I never really have "parties", I just have sleepovers where we play games the whole time. Do you have many festivities on your birthdays?

WTF did my whole Proposal get removed? It took me a long time to write all that worthless crap :(. I created the Proposal because, after asking RAP what I should do (because I didn't want to bother you again, after the previous message), but he said he was busy and so ignored it. Then I did all that for nothing.

I hate this Proposal system. My previous one failed, and now this one barely even lived to the age of 1 second. And there is no message on my talk page informing me why it was deleted. Really helpful.

I know you didn't remove it, I'm just telling you because you're the only sympathetic and understanding user here...

Where do I find when I joined the wiki?


RE: Long time, no chat!

Hey, Stooben! Great to hear from you again! Everything's been going pretty smoothly, but since I just started classes, I'm sure that things are start to get crazy soon!! How is everything with you? Let me check out that post and I'll respond on the forum! Thanks - you've been doing a really good job editing, too, as always. I'm really excited about the Grubba article - thanks to you finding out all those details it's going to be a good article, I think. Stumpers! 23:37, 20 January 2009 (EST)

Aw, man... I'm sorry! Whatever you have to do - we'll understand and no way will I let anyone demote you due to inactivity. I've looked at every section except the personality section and I think things are looking very good. Once again, thanks for taking the time to create such a great backbone for the article!! See you soon! Stumpers! 23:54, 20 January 2009 (EST)
Thanks, you're a good friend, too! You're a good bureaucrat, though, remember that! I'm not just pulling a favor or anything. :P lol at Son of Suns... I suppose I'll have to find him a new image to make him happy. Stumpers! 15:16, 21 January 2009 (EST)
My mistake was that I took Son of Sun's oppose personally rather than based on our mutual concern for the well being of the Wiki. Granted, I still hold that the images were of high enough quality and don't quite agree that someone who played a relatively small role in the article (compared to you and I) should be allowed to hold it back from being featured over images, but what I should have realized from the get-go is that the images only would become an issue when the other issues he mentioned were dealt with. Speaking of, we do need to look in at image resolution and how it relates to fair use... I'm pretty sure some of our images are waaaay to big to be completely legal (not saying that blurry little images are all that we can include, of course). :) Anyway, hopefully this hatchet can be torched, buried, and then nuked, and hopefully we won't see a precedent about images and FAs get set over this. Thanks for the compliment, Stooben, if it weren't for people like you voicing that you like the diplomatic side of me, I wouldn't have backed down. I was packed for bear!! :3 Stumpers!

I'm gonna curb this convo for a lil bit. Haha. Yes Stumpers, it's nothing personal. That's why I have no hard feelings. Now, the templates on most of our images, including screenshots, says "web-resolution" screenshots, as opposed to "low-resolution." Web-resolution would imply any resolution that can be displayed on the web, which isn't perfect. So any image that can be displayed on the web should be fair game, especially because using such images "does not significantly impede the right of the copyright holder to sell the copyrighted material," regardless of the resolution. In fact, it would be fair to say that a better wiki (complete with images) indeed boosts the profits of the copyright holder (Nintendo), as I know I have purchased games in order to work on the wiki. -- Son of Suns (talk)

Actually, the only real thing we need to take care of is making sure we aren't reproducing whole comics or other visual print media. We should probably only be using one page, if not only one panel to provide an image for subjects. Uploading images of comics starts to infringe on Nintendo's copyrights, as people will no longer buy the comics because they can view them here for free. -- Son of Suns (talk)

Definitely. But I am fairly certain we aren't breaking any copyright laws, as most of our images (regardless of subjective terms like "high" or "low quality") are being used to illustrate a subject, and does not interfere with Nintendo's ability to sell their various products. We just need to be careful about comics images, which can lead to copyright violations. =) -- Son of Suns (talk)

Mario Circuit

Just as MKDD needed a hand to add more info to the article, I'm on a mission to expand some racecourses' articles, because they remained abandoned for long time (to submit more info, of course). Ma' first action is to contribute intensively the Mario Circuit article, and looks very good nao, containing detailed info about every course's characteristics and layouts. I hope you liek it :D ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png A problem I having now is to add more info about Itadaki street DS and MK: Super Circuit. They show little info, even gettin to some websites that talk about them don't deal so much information :[

OK, thanks for that, dude! ;]

Yoshi's Island

YOSHI! Oh, sorry about that. Anyways, I got the original version now and it's great! I used to spend most of my time on that playing that game. It's really cool. It's also proving to be quite easy. To get perfect 100 I mean. Just to let you know... Also do you have either Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time or Luigi's Mansion? Thanks. Oh, and here are some random questions, How do you archive pages, and what type of programming language do you know? Can you make me a sprite? And are you one of my friends? O.K. the last one was weird, but I'd like to put your name on my usepage. If that's O.K. with you. Thanks! 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

Awesome, congrats! I don't currently have either of those games, but I used to have Luigi's Mansion. I played the heck out of it too. And also:
  1. Archiving: Click the 'move' tab at the top of your talk page, and then type in "User Talk:Super mario fan/Archive 1" or whatever.
  2. Programming languages? Well, I'm pretty fluent in HTML, if that's what you're referring to. If you mean real life languages, I know a little bit of Spanish, Japanese, German, French, Italian, Greek, and Chinese. Just enough to get by tho.
  3. College was actually pretty easy. But, I'm temporarily out of college. — Stooben Rooben 21:11, 26 January 2009 (EST)

Better Late Than Never

You're one of only 3 Users who mentioned my birthday... so you get +100 Awesome Points :O.

I read your thing under Blitzwing's response... and my response is:

Well, see what I wrote on his talk page about the reason I made a Proposal rather than just doing the stuff.

Oh, and I definitely don't want to learn to drive, for many reasons.
