Hey there, welcome to MarioWiki! Your edits to articles are highly appreciated, keep it up. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 21:05, 15 March 2017 (EDT)

Just a heads up, but we don't allow second person or imperative style of writing (including the usage of "you") on this wiki, as well as the usage of exclamation marks on standard articles. I've edited your text to reflect how we typically write on MarioWiki. Hope you understand this. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 21:14, 15 March 2017 (EDT)

Reminder[edit]

Please stop writing in first/second-person and strategy guide-style writing on the Super Mario Wiki. This isn't a warning, and it's possible that you made a mistake by accident or without realizing it; this is simply a reminder for your information. If the action continues, then a warning will be issued. Thanks for reading and keep contributing.
If this reminder was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You've recently been reminded of this. Please avoid using the word "you" and writing in first-person or second-person perspective (i.e. avoid using "we", and instead of "Go left", you can say "The player can go left" or "Mario can go left"). This, as well as expressions like "Keep in mind...", fall under the "strategy guide" style of writing found in walkthroughs and such, which we do not allow on the wiki. We appreciate you filling in the "Layout" sections for the level articles so please don't take this as a discouragement from editing; just remember to keep this in mind next time and you'll be fine. Thanks and keep contributing. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 02:38, 16 March 2017 (EDT)

Also, when naming any game title, please remember to italicise them (e.g. formatted Super Mario World, rather than just Super Mario World). Thanks. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 20:19, 19 March 2017 (EDT)
