Aboutfile and licensing[edit]

Hello, Superstarxalien169. 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.

|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|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.

Hello. Please consider the above, and just remember to correctly apply a license when uploading files by selecting the correct template from the drop-down menu. Thanks.

Hey, next time you will ever upload any kind of file, could you please compile that template? It is useful to make know about the contents. Thanks for understanding. YoshiCGicon.pngTSUNAMIPlessie Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png

Image Category Reminder[edit]

Hello, Superstarxalien169. 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.

What's weird is that your recent Mario Kart 8 Deluxe images were missing {{uncategorized}} at upload, and that should auto-insert itself when Special:Upload is used, if you forget to categorize. That's no longer the case because I added the categories. Go here and follow the directions with the browser(s) you are using. You should then see {{uncategorized}} in the description box. The idea behind inserting it is that it really shouldn't be there so replace that text with the appropriate category. Also, don't just remove the template without first categorizing the image. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 21:54, 22 January 2017 (EST)

Hello! Please keep the above information in mind when uploading files, as your recent uploads were missing [[Category:Mario Kart DS Images]]. Thanks! --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 13:48, 31 December 2017 (EST)

Media files don't belong in image categories (Category:Mario Kart Arcade GP DX Media Files and Category:Mario Kart Arcade GP DX Images). If the category doesn't exist, you can create it. Also, it is discouraged to have the extension OGG for files, so I moved them to the right name. See Help:Media. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:54, 9 January 2018 (EST)

Personal Images[edit]

These are tagged with {{personal-image-abandoned}}. Revert my edits if this is wrong. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 04:43, 11 February 2017 (EST)

Mario Kart DS[edit]

Hey, can you rip Mario Kart DS texture files? I'd appreciate having textures for the Standard Kart variants, to remove the image tag on this article. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 20:25, 30 December 2017 (EST)

The Standard Karts actually use palette files, but I'll see what I can do. --Spiny Shell.pngSuperstarxalien169Spiny Shell Reverse.png 20:42, 30 December 2017 (EST)
Aw right thanks I'll find time to upload the different kart variations for the wiki BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 23:11, 30 December 2017 (EST)
