Mailan[edit]

Regarding this, there's no connection, and I don't know why you assumed there was. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:55, 14 February 2019 (EST) Oh, sorry. Their usernames both sound similar and end in a year, so, sorry. Also, the accounts were both created within a short time of each other, so I assumed the accounts were related. TheDarkStar(talk) 22:04, 14 February 2019 (EST)

They were created almost a whole day apart, but admins check the IPs of new users that register. It's how the connection to their original account was made in the first place. You're not in trouble, but for future reference, if you think something's up with a user, contact an admin rather than directly confronting them. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:15, 14 February 2019 (EST)

Oh, okay. I'll try to remember that next time. TheDarkStar (talk) 22:21, 14 February 2019 (EST)

I am not trying to vandalize[edit]

Who you please stop calling it vandalism I am not trying to vandalize the article and I am trying to say this in the nicest way possible. I apologize if it comes off this way though my intent is to try improve this wiki not vandalize it.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by 35.136.168.227 (talk).

The edits in question were either redundant or speculative(Kate Higgins could just as possibly be actually singing). TheDarkStar (talk) 23:20, 2 March 2019 (EST)
I just said this to Doomhiker this afternoon, don't be so quick to call edits vandalism if they look like they are actually trying to accomplish something. Unless it's blatant vandalism, an edit summary or talk page explanation would be helpful.
That said, apologies for the edit war. I just got home and am a little tired, so I thought the full name used on the page was what the actual article was called :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:20, 2 March 2019 (EST)
OK. TheDarkStar (talk) 23:22, 2 March 2019 (EST)
A similar situation happened here. Make sure to consider all possibilities of an edit not being vandalism before calling it vandalism especially in this case as many users do not know that we do not cover fan-made content. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 17:09, March 25, 2019 (EDT)
Sorry, I didn't know of the mods. I will try to do a bit more research next time. TheDarkStar (talk) 17:55, March 25, 2019 (EDT)
Again, this edit wasn't necessarily vandalism. For all I know, that IP might've just been doing a test edit. Even if that wasn't the case, a small edit like that shouldn't be counted as vandalism. Mari0fan100 (talk) 19:50, May 22, 2019 (EDT)
OK. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:51, May 22, 2019 (EDT)

"enemies that only reappear in one game"[edit]

The SMB3 enemies only reappeared in one game when SMB&F was released, keep in mind. And that does matter. Very much. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:50, 8 March 2019 (EST)

OK. TheDarkStar (talk) 19:50, 8 March 2019 (EST)

New, more compressed version of https://www.mariowiki.com/File:Wing_Mario_-_Super_Mario_64.png#file[edit]

Hi! I'm new to this wiki so I don't know how this works, but I made a more compressed (lossless) version of it via TinyPNG. It is around 600 kilobytes as opposed to the former 5 megabytes. No idea how this site works, but I uploaded it here. https://www.mariowiki.com/File:Wing_Mario_-_Super_Mario_64_(1).png It says I can't overwrite it or something on the original page. Could you add it in for me?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mariois64 (talk).

Sorry, but I'm not the one you should ask about that. TheDarkStar (talk) 11:24, 9 March 2019 (EST)

Image category[edit]

This really was not acceptable at all. It's obviously not from Donkey Kong, so it shouldn't go in that category. Removing the accidentally-extra colon would have been a much better thing to have done. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:50, March 12, 2019 (EDT)

Oh. I did not know that the image category was existent. TheDarkStar (talk) 18:57, March 12, 2019 (EDT)
Good idea would have been to check the other image on the Rolling Frog page to see what it had. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:05, March 12, 2019 (EDT)
OK, thanks! TheDarkStar (talk) 20:54, March 12, 2019 (EDT)

Reverting edits[edit]

Don't simply continuously revert the edits leaving summaries telling the user to stop (this in particular was unnecessary). A lot of users don't check the history page or recent changes and therefore don't see the summaries, and in the case of vandals (if they do see it), would only provoke them further. In the future, leave a post on their talk page telling them what they did wrong, that way they'd be notified. Mario Gold pose SMM.png Mario JC 00:47, March 20, 2019 (EDT)

OK. I'll try to do that next time. TheDarkStar (talk) 00:53, March 20, 2019 (EDT)

Sea Cactus and Neuron[edit]

See this conversation. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:16, March 29, 2019 (EDT)

I have reverted it. Thanks for letting me know. TheDarkStar (talk) 15:30, March 29, 2019 (EDT)

Hello.[edit]

Do you know how can I create my userpage? It says I can't. --Tent2 (talk) 18:03, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

Only autoconfirmed users can create pages. TheDarkStar (talk) 18:33, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

Ice Cherbil[edit]

Add that quote to MarioWiki:BJAODN/Enemies, that is amazing XD Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:55, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

Thanks, I will do that straight away! :D TheDarkStar (talk) 21:56, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
Added it. View it here! TheDarkStar (talk) 22:04, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
I think that might mean they don't take damage from it.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:40, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

"Plagiarism"[edit]

Quoting something is not plagiarism, and neither is listing an official description. "Plagiarism" is trying to pass something off as one's own writing when it isn't. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:40, March 30, 2019 (EDT)

OK. TheDarkStar (talk) 22:43, March 30, 2019 (EDT)
They don't need to mention the brochure, it's not like they're writing an essay. It really only needs to be said that it's in-game text if it has writing that would otherwise go against our standards. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:53, April 4, 2019 (EDT)
OK, sorry. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 21:57, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for helping me with that mario and luigi glitch [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 18:43, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

You're welcome. You might want to update your signature, though. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:35, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

What is wrong with it. I tried to be original :) [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 20:04, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

I let you know on your talk page. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 20:06, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

It's finally here.[edit]

Listen to it.

-- Tent2 (talk) 16:23, April 3, 2019 (EDT)

Thank you! Definitely adding it to my userpage :D TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 16:22, April 3, 2019 (EDT)

OGA Redirect[edit]

That redirect you made like minutes ago kinda broke the file, since now its playing the old version that Mikoro uploaded. -- Tent2 (talk) 17:21, April 3, 2019 (EDT)

I will check and see what's wrong. Just clicking the "Upload a new version of this file" button would have made this a lot easier. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:23, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
I checked, nothing's wrong. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:24, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
It's probably just my browser, but its still playing the 1:19 second file audio for me. -- Tent2 (talk) 17:26, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
Try Ctrl+F5. And please stop adding in raw code for your signature, look at this. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:27, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
I know that, but I still kinda need to get permission to create the signature page. --Tent2 (talk) 17:40, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
What do you mean? You're autoconfirmed. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:41, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
No, I am not. I still need two days more to be autoconfirmed. --Tent2 (talk) 17:43, April 3, 2019 (EDT)
Ah, I see. Wait two days, then. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:44, April 3, 2019 (EDT)

I think I finally got it.[edit]

I'm not sure, though. --Tent2 Luigi vs Popple thing.gif 20:13, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

Wow, you finally created your signature? I thought you were going to be autoconfirmed in two days, not one. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 20:19, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

RE: Plagiarism[edit]

You say that like that was the user's intention. The user was most likely trying to quote the brochure but just didn't mention it, especially since, as you yourself stated, they mentioned it the first few times. Don't always assume bad faith in other users. Mario Gold pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:57, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

OK. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 21:58, April 4, 2019 (EDT)

RE:userbox[edit]

Yes you can if I can use yours! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 18:57, April 5, 2019 (EDT)

You may. Just copy-paste the code I left on your talk page. :D TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:58, April 5, 2019 (EDT)

A letter from The CoolYoshi[edit]

Dear TheDarkStar,

I am witting you a message in your talk page for a second. When I edit the article, DK's Jungle Adventure, you undo my edits and said that your wording is better than mine on this wiki. You know that it is the easiest board in the first Mario Party game for the Nintendo 64. It is rated 1 out of 3 stars. And the winning player gets a golden banana bunch from the chest. When I edited again, you made a second undo! You said that the previous wording is better than mine! I edited the article one more time and you undo it one more time at least. And I am so sorry that you undo my work.

Your Friend,

The CoolYoshi

The only thing you did at all was change the words unnecessarily to other ones that fit less. Sorry, but i'll have to side with TheDarkStar on this one. --Tent2 Luigi vs Popple thing.gif 15:26, April 6, 2019 (EDT)
Oh, by the way, when you want to sign your messages, you should write up four tildes, since that's the default signature option. --Tent2 Luigi vs Popple thing.gif 15:28, April 6, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, I've let them know multiple times. Thanks. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 15:37, April 6, 2019 (EDT)

And for the record...[edit]

He's animated now. Dark Star Animated.gif --Tent2 Luigi vs Popple thing.gif 21:30, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

"This went unseen for years"[edit]

Um, the "no contractions" rule is only a few months old..... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:46, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Oh. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 14:46, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Undo[edit]

Why did you undo my bomb-omb edit? [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 17:27, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

It made things make less sense. The square brackets mean that a sentence is referring to something not named in the actual dialogue. You needlessly removed those, making the text pretty nonsensical. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:43, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
Also, please try not to give people a hard time for undoing your edits, because that violates the courtesy policy. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:45, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
The same policy explicitly states: "If they did not explain themselves in any of their edit summaries, you can contact them and ask why they reverted your edits, but don't be defensive or hostile about it." No policy was breached in his comment, as there was no hostility. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:49, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

User talk:Doc von Schmeltwick#Sliding Haymaker. Hopefully this clears it up... sorry. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:56, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
I mean, all caps translates into yelling and having a frowning face could be considered as a mean of giving another user a hard time for undoing an edit. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:57, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, that's what I was going off. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:59, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
Sorry I was a little mad sorry... also QUOTE:”It made things make less sense. The square brackets mean that a sentence is referring to something not named in the actual dialogue. You needlessly removed those, making the text pretty nonsensical.” What are you talking about dark star? It is a wiki and I have never seen that anywhere else so I was trying to make it follow the wiki and it looked unprofessional so yeah. [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 19:03, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Sorry and thanks[edit]

Sorry about all the typos I am gojng of of DK Wiki so please forgive me I am not perfect[-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 20:39, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Eh, it's ok. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 20:41, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

Admin noticeboard[edit]

I fail to see why this was a necessary revision. Now they can't do rollback their typical way. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:30, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

...oh. I didn't think about that. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 22:31, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
Please do not adjust user messages on the admin noticeboard. Admins will take care of the issues, and I believe this falls under the "don't alter other user's comments" courtesy. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:39, April 9, 2019 (EDT)
Oh. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 22:40, April 9, 2019 (EDT)

User talk pages[edit]

If someone asks a question on a user talk page, they are wanting an answer from the user in question. Please do not step in unless the user is either inactive or they don't appear to be responding in a timely manner. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:31, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

OK. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 14:31, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

Undo[edit]

About my undo things. I use my Ipad so that was easy. I can tap desktop to undo something big though! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 14:53, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

It would be a good idea to stay on the desktop site altogether so you have easy access to the undo button. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 14:54, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
To be honest! The mobile is easier for me but if I have to do something I will! [-]€40 分@4¡0 (talk) 14:56, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

Edits[edit]

Hello please do not edit my comments. Especially the ones on my talk and that are a year old!!! [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 17:52, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

Editing comments is allowed as long as you are fixing formatting, such as your signature ending up in one of those code box things due to a space before it. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:54, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Excuse me!? Simple fact: DON’T EDIT COMMENTS!!!I don’t do that to anyone!!! [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 17:57, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
Please stop yelling (i.e. using multitudes of exclamation points and/or writing in all-caps), as that goes against the courtesy policy. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:05, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
sorry... but please don’t change my edits. As that also goes against the courtesy policy. [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 18:06, April 17, 2019 (EDT)
As already stated you can alter comments if it complies with the rules stated: "*:The only comments you are allowed to remove are flames and acts of vandalism, and the only times you can alter another user's comment is to fix broken coding or replace a custom signature with {{user}} on pages which enforce the no-signature policy. Altering the actual content of a comment, even if you're just fixing typos, is a warnable offense. This is not limited to mainspace: even on your own talk page, you shouldn't delete a conversation. It is also inappropriate to go back and alter or remove your own comments from talk pages; if you no longer stand by something you said earlier, slash it out using <s></s> or <del></del>, but be sure to leave it up for the record. In proposals and FA nominations, if no one has "per"d your vote or addressed it in the comments, you may remove it; however, if someone has referred to your vote, you must slash it out and ensure that it is no longer counted in the tally by affixing it to the preceding line through use of <br>." Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:10, April 17, 2019 (EDT)

C.A.R.P.[edit]

I just saw my proposal on your userpage. I'm flattered that you think that was worth archiving.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 18:37, April 21, 2019 (EDT)

Well, thanks! I like acronyms, and I was the one who added it to the BJAODN in the first place, so I archived it on my userpage. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 20:08, April 21, 2019 (EDT)

That’s not Luigi in the Gloomtail image. Mario wears Luigi’s clothes with the L Emblem badge. MLPiT Piranha Planet.gif Scrooge200 (talk) 13:31, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Oh. I haven't actually played TTYD, so I didn't know about the L Emblem badge. Sorry. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 13:32, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Kremkoin "glitch"[edit]

Oh? I'm not too familiar with the Donkey Kong Country series, so is this more of a developer secret? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:50, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, it's more of a debug exploit than a glitch. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:51, April 22, 2019 (EDT)
Ah, interesting. DKWiki calls it a "cheat", so I thought it would work on the glitch page. Was going to include the info on the Kremkoin page anyway, as it is on Pirate Panic's page. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:54, April 22, 2019 (EDT)
Makes sense. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:55, April 22, 2019 (EDT)

Top bar thing[edit]

You could've asked me for a custom one with any character you want, you know. --Tent2 Luigi vs Popple thing.gif 18:08, April 27, 2019 (EDT)

Ah, I see. However, I do think the Shroob header looks very nice. That's why I used it on my userpage in the first place. Thanks for letting me know. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 18:11, April 27, 2019 (EDT)

Also go to Ultimate Mr.L’s page. It is LITTERED in userboxes. [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 14:33, April 28, 2019 (EDT)

Thanks, but my quotes section is only for my original quotes from edit summaries. Maybe you could use it by applying the {{quote2}} template. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 14:45, April 28, 2019 (EDT)
Ok... fixed!!! [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 17:05, May 2, 2019 (EDT)
Nice, but I meant you could put it on your userpage. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:05, May 2, 2019 (EDT)
Oh [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 17:07, May 2, 2019 (EDT)
Eh, it's ok. Also, it's not needed to put each indented comment two lines apart. Just on the next line will do. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:57, May 2, 2019 (EDT)

Are you, by any chance......[edit]

On the Discord? I haven't seen you there, but maybe you are in, with another identity. --Tent2 Luigi vs Popple thing.gif 21:31, April 30, 2019 (EDT)

...Why is THIS still there? [-]€40 分@4¡0(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 13:16, May 12, 2019 (EDT)
The big text you created hid the edit and undo link from Special:Diff, making it near-impossible to edit it from Special:Diff. Going any bigger on my userpage would hide the userbox tower. I hope this answered your question! TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 17:53, May 12, 2019 (EDT)

Reporting users[edit]

I would appreciate it if you didn't constantly report users just because they share similar usernames with other users. Common names occur all the time by coincidence, especially something like "(Popular Mario character name)(number)". The admins IP-check new users on a regular basis, and they'll know when they see it. Mario Gold pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:11, May 5, 2019 (EDT)

Ah, OK. Sorry. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 22:11, May 5, 2019 (EDT)

Stubs[edit]

Here you incorrectly labeled an article as a stub: note that stub articles are pages that are missing information, not always small pages, so for example a small page may not be a stub, while a large page may be a stub. As far as I can tell Box Spring covers all of the subject's information, meaning that it is not a stub. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:38, May 7, 2019 (EDT)

OK. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:40, May 7, 2019 (EDT)
@TheDarkStar I had a similar issue with Yoshi876, but it was with taking off the stub tag rather than putting it on an article. Mari0fan100 (talk) 22:31, May 7, 2019 (EDT)
I know. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 22:32, May 7, 2019 (EDT)

Маммошка[edit]

Hey, I want to clarify why you added a "rewrite" template on the Mammoshka page. I've done some rewriting here, fixed some weird pronouns, fixed future tense, and also fixed some wonky phrasing, so I'm wondering if the page's issues are fixed. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 19:09, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

There's a whole lot of poor and flowery writing on the page. Hope this answered your question! TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:13, May 10, 2019 (EDT)

"A bunch of people online"[edit]

...as said by a character from the game itself in an official source. It's a fourth wall break. Still official. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:39, May 12, 2019 (EDT)

I also forgot to point out that i wasn't brave enough to do it, because i like HEROMARIO (even though he is a bit problematic). --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 13:36, May 25, 2019 (EDT)

"Memorial"[edit]

Don't care if you were gravedancing or thought you were doing a serious "tribute" to another user, drawing attention to another user's block on the Sandbox as you did here is not acceptable. --Glowsquid (talk) 14:13, May 25, 2019 (EDT)

Oh, sorry. TheDarkStarMLBISBJJDarkStar.png 14:13, May 25, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, i didn't know that either. --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 14:14, May 25, 2019 (EDT)
FYI, here is an appropriate example of when and where a memorial can be used. It's on someone's talk page, and they've actually passed away. I hope this clarification is clear. Mari0fan100 (talk) 15:07, May 25, 2019 (EDT)
