RE: Nominating a character article to be a FA[edit]

So back on March 6, I nominated a character article to be featured on this very wiki. But as of today, it has not gotten any single response aside from mine. What is up with that? Don't click Penny PnnyCrygr User contributions 08:17, March 9, 2023 (EST)

It's really just a matter of whether people see that it has a nomination going or not. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 09:48, March 9, 2023 (EST)

Mario Movie Gallery Question[edit]

Hi there, This user threatened to report me if I undo their edits. It stemmed from a misunderstanding over at the Mario Mover Gallery. It truly was not my intention to cause any trouble, I'm just doing my best to clarify the context of the art. Hope everything can be sorted out!

Help with Images[edit]

Hello, I should have been more specific. I don't know how to get the images from my Switch to my laptop. - User:Luigi 1837

Thank you! I didn't know about the function. - User:Luigi 1837

Hello, can you please help me? I'm trying to make the Minecraft Blocks and Items list into a gallery with all of the images, but I'm having trouble making it. How can I do it? - User:Luigi 1837

Thank you for the info! I'll firstly finish uploading all of the images I have and then I'll go though them and add the licensing and other info. Another thing, should I get images for the characters too? - User:Luigi 1837 P.S.- By any chance do you know how to change the background color of user pages, because I've been wanting to change my user pages background color, but don't know how to.

I believe there are images for the characters in Minecraft already, and as for your userpage color I'm not sure how to do that either. You should probably ask someone who has done that with their userpage. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 12:27, March 15, 2023 (EDT)

That's good, because it would be a painful process of going through them and adding the licensing and categories, I'll ask about the coloring to someone else. I'm not sure if the character images are uploaded, because they've been asked for in the spotlight. Thanks for the help! -User:Luigi 1837 P.S. Is there by any chance a way to upload multiple images at once or is it only possible by doing one at a time?

Sorry, if I have broken a rule or something! I didn't realize I had broken a rule. I thought it would be easier to just upload the images first and then go through and add the categories. I'm still new to the wiki, so I'm really sorry for breaking a rule! I'm going to ask you now about the descriptions, do I have to fill them in also or can I just fill in the licensing and categories? I don't want to break another rule. -User:Luigi 1837

The descriptions should be filled in too (wasn't sure if there was a reminder template relating to that as well), and any parameters that you won't use can be removed. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 14:39, March 15, 2023 (EDT)

And does the artist section have to be filled too or not, because I don't know who to wright in it. -User:Luigi 1837

If it's an in-game screenshot, then the parameter can be removed. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 14:46, March 15, 2023 (EDT)
Sorry, can you please explain what did you mean with removing the parameter, and does it have to be removed? And sorry, but I still didn't understand what I need to wright in the parameter. -User:Luigi 1837
Can you please check if I've done the info and things on the images correctly, when you've got time, Thanks! I'll be uploading the last images tomorrow, then making the gallery. I'm really sorry again for breaking a rule by mistake! -User:Luigi 1837
The three edits I did on the images just now show what I mean. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 16:30, March 15, 2023 (EDT)

Thanks! I'll keep that in mind. I'll make the changes tomorrow. -User:Luigi 1837

My featured article nom.[edit]

It has already passed the 19:28 schedule, when the article would get feech'd. Can you please incorportate the fa status into the affected article? Thank you Don't click Penny PnnyCrygr User contributions 19:37, March 30, 2023 (EDT)

You can put the featured template on the article the moment the nomination is over and passed. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 20:08, March 30, 2023 (EDT)

It had to be said[edit]

Your own username makes this block infinitely funnier than what would have otherwise been bland immaturity. Along with the word "block" being there. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 11:40, April 4, 2023 (EDT)

Honestly I'm not sure whether to feel embarressed or amused by this, especially since the reason behind my username is actually explained on my userpage. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 11:48, April 4, 2023 (EDT)


Props for the promotion, you definitely earned it through your hard work on this wiki!—Mister Wu (talk) 07:21, April 6, 2023 (EDT)

Thank you for the kind words. I'll be honest, there's something that happened outside the wiki which I'd rather not talk about here, and I'm not in a very good way right now. Really wish things were better, just might take it easy for a little while. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 07:27, April 7, 2023 (EDT)

What happened to Mario Wiki on April 1? Was it vandalized? ˜˜˜˜Sunny12345

Updating MarioWiki:References[edit]

Due to two proposals which passed last year, one of which was by you, MarioWiki:References needs to be updated. I left the suggestions in its talk page.--Platform (talk) 12:00, April 21, 2023 (EDT)


Hey, I was just going to ignore this and I already message Waluigi Time about it, but this user is making backhanded comments about me and I'm not entirely sure how to handle the situation. It started when they deleted a message off my talk page that I simply reverted as I want to respect that messages should not be removed from talk pages. I haven't been on much because of other commitments so I simply said on my user page I wasn't editing much. Now every time I made small edits such as in the gallery for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope , [[1]]they [[2]]are [[3]]using edit summaries to call me out on this, when I feel I have not done anything pernsonal to them except ask politely to not remove messages from my talk page. Thanks for your time.

Sdman213 (talk) 11:46, May 10, 2023 (EDT)

That kind of behaviour definitely isn't acceptable, staff is currently deciding how to handle it. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 12:10, May 10, 2023 (EDT)
Thank you so much, have a nice day! Sdman213 (talk) 12:12, May 10, 2023 (EDT)

Re: Merge templates[edit]

As i'm not as active as i once was, nor do i check up on pages that regularly, i couldn't know about that proposal. Thanks for letting me know. --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 04:13, July 3, 2023 (EDT)

Does it also apply to removing something from a page, like the Piranha Plant king? --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 03:28, July 20, 2023 (EDT)

Re:Move templates[edit]

I'm sorry, but some of these are either policy-driven or self-evident, and thus don't require much of any discussion to begin with, just routine second-guessing the information present in the articles. All it does is slow down or obfuscate sensible moves that would have been made a while ago by editors more familiar with those subjects. What happens if discussion stalls anyway? We just leave certain outstanding changes to obscurity? I don't really get it since the meta category templates were hidden for a reason, I presume. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:18, July 23, 2023 (EDT)

The proposal didn't account for any exceptions, so either there's a discussion somewhere or the template doesn't go on the page, simple as that. The template gets removed if said discussion is deemed inactive. If anyone more familiar with these subjects comes across these and wants to move them, then it would be up to them to bring it up in the talk page and put the template on the article. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 13:34, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
I need a little more clarification. Are you saying it's necessary for every article that dropped those templates to have their discussions (re)opened? That's not what I'm seeing in the proposal. It's just about the use of the templates. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:47, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
Yes it is. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 13:54, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
I'm going to ask the proposer about it, then, because I simply do not see that explanation in the proposal. If that was within the scope of the proposal and I was aware of it, I would have been vehemently against it, for the reasons I've outlined. I think it's just an extra hurdle for everyone with little gain. LinkTheLefty (talk) 14:07, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
Actually, it probably wouldn't if you would just go ahead and move the page, but the template still shouldn't stay there without any action being taken. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 14:28, July 23, 2023 (EDT)

A question about sandbox pages[edit]

In my sandbox page, is there a way to remove the redirect to my userpage (e.g. < User:Pizza Master) or otherwise make it invisible?--Poisoned Geno SMRPG sprite.png Pizza Master 17:26, August 16, 2023 (EDT)

I don't think there is, every user subpage I've looked at has it. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 18:39, August 16, 2023 (EDT)

K. Thank you for checking anyway.--Poisoned Geno SMRPG sprite.png Pizza Master 21:44, August 16, 2023 (EDT)

Re: Vandal engagement[edit]

That wasn't necessarily aimed at them specifically, but moreso about the vandalism itself, but ok. --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 10:09, August 21, 2023 (EDT)

Re:Super Mario World 2 Italian names[edit]

Either it was LOOONG time ago (back when I took it more lightly), or I have no idea what you're talking about. The most recent mistake is maybe the Sluggy, which I just recalled badly was named "Peluria", but then I rechecked the game footage of SMA3 and Kamek was like "Let's see how you deal with this "Sguscio"." which I then fixed. Any examples of this, for references? My avatar's face to use in the signature Mariuigi Khed 08:46, August 26, 2023 (EDT)

I made some tiny digging: no, the few times I added Italian names for the enemies that appeared in SMW2YI, I did use the names from other games (YIDS, YNI, YWW and YCW) nothing invented. Might have been two tiny cases in the past (something like "well, we have Skeletro Gabby and Gabby senz'ali so of course the "Flightless Skeleton Goonie" must be "Skeletro Gabby senz'ali" even tho it isn't written anywhere else." [I tended to mix Wiki's and Wikia's less strict rules]), but those have been rolledback due to lack of official references. Nothing more to it.

The Southern Portion of Toad Town Being Accessible After Bowser's Defeat[edit]

During "Paper Mario (2001)", would the southern portion of Toad Town be accessible following Bowser's defeat?--Carlitosbug (talk) 23:19, August 31, 2023 (EDT)

Paper Macho Soldiers[edit]

Are Paper Macho Soldiers a species? RosalinaFanboi777 (talk) 06:00, September 30, 2023 (EDT)

I'm pretty sure a while back I removed "Paper Macho" from being a species in infoboxes, would be preferable to just list their species as what enemy they're based off. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 06:41, September 30, 2023 (EDT)
How so? RosalinaFanboi777 (talk) 10:11, September 30, 2023 (EDT)
"Paper Macho" isn't a species either, it's more of an enemy class in the game like how Folded Soldiers are what you fight in battles and Paper Macho enemies you fight in the field. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 10:59, September 30, 2023 (EDT)

Edit question[edit]

Hello Swallow. Why did you revert my recent edits? Not angry, just curious. RosalinaFanboi777 (talk) 14:57, October 22, 2023 (EDT)

I did leave an edit summary in the first one, that we should avoid overusing the category just because the place has lava in it. I don't really agree with what the category page itself says either, I'd rather it was used for actual volcano areas. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 15:01, October 22, 2023 (EDT)
Fair enough, would advise you provide an explanation such as "Explained in my edit summary on X's page" to avoid any confusion. What should the category say? RosalinaFanboi777 (talk) 15:10, October 22, 2023 (EDT)
I'm thinking of having it as "Volcanoes throughout the Super Mario franchise". As this would change the scope of the category, it may require a proposal first. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 15:16, October 22, 2023 (EDT)


Hey there, I saw Yoshi and Blue Toad's infobox images updated with renders that hold a Red Shell. Is the policy correct in that the images should be just the character if possible? I know Nabbit's was updated for Wonder though he is holding a mushroom, I don't want to engage with reverting Yoshi's and Blue Toad's pages anymore to not cause an edit war, and thought bringing it up could help resolve this, thanks!

Sdman213 (talk) 21:37, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

I don't mind using the images of them holding the red shells for the same reason Doc von Schmeltwick said about Nabbit with the mushroom, that the red shell is an iconic item throughout the Mario franchise and doesn't really specialise the game in any way. The rule about items only really applies if said item is specifically for the game or series such as sports gear or the Mario + Rabbids weapons. Luigi's SMBW artwork however I think is a hard no since that shows him using the Parachute Cap ability which is exclusive to the game, and Luigi's hat is never that big.

Can my MarioBobfan2007'snewaccount account please finally be unbanned? I think it's time my account gets unblocked.[edit]

I think it's time for it to be unbanned. It has been way too long. 00:30, October 27, 2023 And my MarioBoards account needs to be unbanned. I also need to put loads of stuff and edit pages. 2099 is way far too long. It's also laughable that I got banned until that date, since that is waaaaaay too long. It's also time that I get unblocked, since I regret doing the stuff that got me banned. (EDT)

WarioWare Renders[edit]

Hey, quick question, some renders for the WarioWare characters (specifically Jimmy T, 18-Volt, Dribble & Spitz, and 13-Amp, had new renders for Move It! but got reverted. Do you think the renders are fine or should the renders from Get it Together stay there for now? I think the Move It renders are fine but would rather not edit war about them. Thanks! I also let Ray Trace know but thought it wouldn't hurt to spread the question around.

Sdman213 (talk) 10:21, November 3, 2023 (EDT)

I've never played any of the WarioWare games so I'm not too sure how to go about this one. I don't even know if these characters do have a consistant design. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 10:37, November 3, 2023 (EDT)
I just remember Dr. Crygor having a different design every game and Mona wearing a different outfit every game, and their infoboxes were updated consistently per game. I don't see a reason not to use the new Move It renders with that knowledge. I thinks its an IP account that reverted but I'm not sure if a discussion should be made first. I do know that Jimmy T's render was used on the new website Nintendo of Japan made for the WarioWare series in general.

Sdman213 (talk) 10:42, November 3, 2023 (EDT)


Hey there, [user] used rude an unnecessarily rude tone in the edit summary, I'm not trying to cause any trouble, I simply removed the information because there is not a direct confirmation that a character that looks like Mr. Sparkles in WarioWare reappears in Move It.

Sdman213 (talk) 18:56, November 7, 2023 (EST)

Sorry to say this, but I'd rather not get involved in a dispute concerning a game or series I barely know anything about (there's a list of games/series in my userpage I do concern myself with). I don't even really pay attention to what edits go on in that field. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 19:06, November 7, 2023 (EST)

Alpha Kretin Discussion[edit]

Swallow, I was wondering, if Starlow fought Alpha Kretin alongside Mario instead of Luigi, how would Starlow dodge the energy balls and electricity? What do you think? 20:44, November 8, 2023 (EST)

Enemy Profile[edit]

Hello Swallow. Thank you for your tip about Italic text. I have a question. When I look at the enemies and bosses that appear in Mario RPG titles, there are enemy profiles that contain information like HP, Defense, Weaknesses etc. I was wondering, how do you make one of those? --Darksouless1 (talk) 11:01, November 20, 2023 (EST)

I'm no expert on the subject, but several Super Mario RPG enemy articles already do have a stat table for the remake which is taken directly from the game's monster list. You could just copy and paste the code from those tables and change what's in the table itself to fit the article you're putting it into. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 11:23, November 20, 2023 (EST)

RE: RE: RPG lists question.[edit]

Ok, I can change the names right now, but the images will have to wait until I get around to play the remake. It will take time to get to it since I just completed Chapter 1 of PM64. --Mid188 (talk) 12:59, November 26, 2023 (EST)

That's fine, though I should mention that all Hidden Treasures are also exactly the same for both locations and items in the remake so that should also be one page for both versions. Tosai "Fret" Furesawa Swallow Rindo Kanade 13:58, November 26, 2023 (EST)

Ok, I will do Hidden too, when I get there. And regarding the Mushroom Ball remake images - Yeah, I can do that too.--Mid188 (talk) 14:06, November 26, 2023 (EST)

Thank you for deleting that[edit]
