Club Nintendo Comics[edit]

Hello, remember that I told you about the few Club Nintendo comics available on classic-zone.de? I removed the broken links from all the articles. Do you think this link could be used instead for the few downloadable comics? If yes, how should it be linked to? The actual download pages look fairly bland, should it always link to the overview page? --Grandy02 17:23, 17 April 2009 (EDT)

Thanks for removing the links :) Yes, I think linking to the overview page is the best option. Time Questions 06:25, 18 April 2009 (EDT)

Hello, I did some work on the article Wario, could you take a look at it and at the comment I wrote on the to-be-unfeatured page? --Grandy02 16:43, 18 April 2009 (EDT)

Contrary to the comments above.... this is important[edit]

Well yes, this is sad! Birdoshi...she has quitted from being a Mario Wiki user! she asked me to tell this to her trusted friends,THE CAUSE: she's moving to Spain! if you want to know more ask me Castle Toad 22:56, 22 April 2009 (EDT)

Hey[edit]

Hiya, Time Q. Long time, no talk. I came here for two reasons. 1) To see how you were, since we haven't talked in a while. :P 2) To see if you had any comments to make on this? — Stooben Rooben 18:58, 23 April 2009 (EDT)

Oh, I'm fine, thanks. A bit busy with college and stuff, but still fine. How are you? Oh, and thanks for pointing out the forum discussion to me, I posted a message there. I know I should contribute more to such discussions, sorry 'bout that. Time Questions 03:33, 24 April 2009 (EDT)
College, eh? Cool. I'm gonna be going back to college in a few weeks; I'm pretty excited. Other than that, life is slow, so I'm good too. :P Hey, no problem; it took me a few months to start regularly visiting the Sysop Board. I just wanted your opinion on that matter since you're the only other active 'Crat now. — Stooben Rooben 13:32, 24 April 2009 (EDT)
I don't really know anything about colleges in the US, so I have to ask... do you learn multiple subjects there, like in school? Or just one or two special subjects? We do the latter (maybe the word "university" is more accurate ^^). Well, anyway, I'll try and check the sysops board more often from now on. Time Questions 16:08, 24 April 2009 (EDT)
Well, it's actually both. The majority of colleges (universities :P) have you learning multiple subjects; others have you learning one or two courses. For instance, last year I went to a college called CollegeAmerica, (a very horrid college, I might add); even though I was taking computer science, they were teaching me history, math, language arts, and a bunch of other subjects that had absolutely nothing to do with computers. But, the online college that I plan to go to this year only teaches web design and graphic design, which is exactly what I want. :D — Stooben Rooben 14:36, 25 April 2009 (EDT)

You beat me to it[edit]

I just finished putting up the new poll, so I checked my messages. I saw that SilverYoshi gave me a link to his rename request. I clicked 'Rename', and got the error "Sorry! This user has already been renamed to the desired user name!".

Talk about good timing, lol. :P — Stooben Rooben 13:25, 9 May 2009 (EDT)

Lol! I'm sorry if you were looking forward to moving a dozen of sub-pages ^^ Time Questions 13:28, 9 May 2009 (EDT)
You should be sorry. Coffee and moving user pages are the only two things that keep me here, haha. — Stooben Rooben 13:36, 9 May 2009 (EDT)
Oh, I didn't know it's that bad :( But if renaming users is such a joy for you, I'll gladly leave it to you in future ;) Time Questions 13:40, 9 May 2009 (EDT)
Nonono, I think you're way more on the ball with renames than me. ;) I do lots of renames on the forums anyway, lol. — Stooben Rooben Touché 14:00, 9 May 2009 (EDT)

WarioWare FA Nomination[edit]

Hello Time Q, since you take care of the Featured Articles process, could you take a look at this issue mentioned under Comments? --Grandy02 14:09, 22 June 2009 (EDT)

Tally vote aftertalk[edit]

It's OK, I actually tried checking the history, but I actually can't figure it out. Oh, and some people don't even bother checking the proposals at times. That would be a diseater if something was changing during the voting, so I would thank you in the future for planning to attempt to remind people of their invalid tally votes. We should talk more soon. :3 RAP.pngRAP... I'm really serious! :3 But I'm coughing a bit right now. So I'll come back in a few days. ^_^

This user is adding false information to Mario Kart articles. We reciently had a spammer adding the exact same information so I feel he should be blocked.

You suggested the Background section on the Princess Peach article. I went ahead and did what you requested. Does it look good? Super Mario Bros. (talk) 18:18, 6 July 2009 (EDT)

Player40[edit]

Time Q, I have a request. You recently blocked a user named Player152 (talk) 5 days ago for vandalism. Somebody created a new account named Player40 (talk). Could you please perform CheckUser to make sure that Player40 isn't Player152 evading his/her ban? Super Mario Bros. (talk) 18:50, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

You did very well, thank you. :) Super Mario Bros. (talk) 19:34, 9 July 2009 (EDT)

Remove[edit]

Can I remove the crossed out vote on Luigi's FA Nomination? The user obviously wanted to discount it but didn't realize that he used a # which raises the number. Marioguy1 (talk)

Well... the nomination has lots of supporters anyway, so I don't think it really matters whether it displays 52 or 53 support votes. Time Questions 19:31, 15 July 2009 (EDT)
Please *uses puppy dog face* Marioguy1 (talk)
Do it after someone edits the page. Time Questions 19:52, 15 July 2009 (EDT)

Proposals[edit]

You said you would reconsider your vote tomorrow, well tomorrow is now! So...reconsider...I'll give you lots of time before I add another comment...I'm not watching you...Marioguy1 (talk)

Oh thank goodness, an appropriate header! Anyhow: Can you please give me feedback about User:Marioguy1/Mariowiki:Ask the Experts? I'm about to propose to put it in the Mariowikispace but I want feedback from the two users I respect the most (you and SMB and a bit Yoshario and Walkazo. I guess I like 2257 because he blocked a vandal who's edits I was reverting for over an hour.) so, can you give me feedback? You might also want to delete the many images (and some articles) in Category:To be deleted. Thanks in advance Marioguy1 (talk)

Reminder[edit]

Haven't you gotten a header from me like this before or were you not part of the Welcome template discussion? Anyhow, can you vote on whether or not to change the Reminder template? Have I said this to you yet, anyhow, happy subscript day! MArioguy1 (talk)

Haha, thanks. I'll check it tomorrow, ok? Sorry, but I'm a bit tired now (it's 1:25 am where I live). Time Questions 19:25, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

Could You...[edit]

Please unprotect the Featured Image that was just taken off of the Main Page (the Super Mario Sunshine one)? Thank you. · SMB (Talk) · 19:14, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

Removal of Support Votes[edit]

Please tell me why I'm not aloud to remove support votes even though I have the permission of an admin? Marioguy1 (talk)

Because even admins can't know all of our rules, and it's not allowed to remove support votes. From the FA page:

Users may vote for the removal of an oppose vote [not support!] if they feel it is invalid or not specific enough, but have to give reasons for their choice. Five users, including a sysop, are required for the removal of an oppose vote.

From the Unfeature page:

The process of unfeaturing bears great resemblence to the process of featuring an article. Indeed, the only differences are the following: [...] not only oppose votes, but also support votes can be removed if they are not well-reasoned enough. The agreement of five users, including a sysop, is needed to remove a vote.

This clearly means that support votes can't be removed from FA nominations. Sorry that SolarBlaze gave you wrong information. Time Questions 11:38, 24 July 2009 (EDT)

Hey Time Q...[edit]

Could you please block Hates-yoshi (talk)? He/she is vandalizing the Yoshi page repetedly, ignored a reminder template, and undid a revision by a Sysop. · SMB (Talk) · 16:13, 25 July 2009 (EDT)

Your German?[edit]

I thought that the only german user on this wiki was grandy 02! I'm not German, but my relatives are and I am starting to learn the launguage and such. I wish I knew how to say "see ya!" in german.... Luigifreak (talk)

:) Cool. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me :) Cobold (talk) is another German user, by the way. For "see ya", you could say "tschüss", "tschau" or "bis später". Time Questions 14:37, 12 August 2009 (EDT)

Uh... sorry, I have no clue. Never really cared for the anniversary. I guess Wayoshi (talk) is the right person to ask. Time Questions 13:29, 14 August 2009 (EDT)

Page Revert[edit]

Earlier (or last night) you reverted an edit of mine on the Larry Koopa article. I understand that the cartoons came before the M&L series or Paper Mario but then why is New Super Mario Bros. Wii mentioned before the cartoon. Hammer Bro Brawl artwork.pngMCHammerBro.MCBallyhoo and Big Top artwork.PNG 17:52, 15 August 2009 (EDT)

That's a mistake, feel free to change it :) Marioguy1 (talk)
No, that's not a mistake. NSMBW is mentioned before the cartoons, because it's part of the Super Mario series - and the first game of the Super Mario series was released earlier than the cartoons. We sort by series first and then by release date. See here for more info. Time Questions 18:35, 15 August 2009 (EDT)
Ok so It goes seris then the stuff in it then the next series.....that clears it up (gave me a headache but did the job) sorry for all the inconvenience.Hammer Bro Brawl artwork.pngMCHammerBro.MCBallyhoo and Big Top artwork.PNG 21:06, 15 August 2009 (EDT)

Hi and welcome. Well, do you have any favourite games (or other media, such as cartoons, comics, ...)? I would suggest to check the related articles, I'm sure you'll always find something that needs to be corrected/expanded. Whenever I don't know what to do on the wiki, I also hit Random Page.

HI! I know face is not a proper noun, but we capitalize all titles, dont we? then some articles like Davy Bones Locker should be moved to Davy Bones locker, shouldnt they? --tucayosz9se5.png(talk) The 'Shroom 21:33, 23 August 2009 (EDT)

Davy Bones' Locker is a stage that is referred to in the game as such. "Mario's face" is just a title we call it, based on what it is: Mario's face. There are some other articles with such titles, though I can't think of any at the moment... Time Questions 03:49, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

Coding question[edit]

HI TimeQ! Can i write in 2 cloumns here, in the wiki? If yes, how? TucayoSig.png Thanks a lot :) Hi. I don't think you should do that in mainspace articles (although there are some exceptions, such as this list), but of course you can do it on your user page. As you can see, I'm currently doing it :) I can just explain you the basics, though. Put the text you want to split into columns between the tags {| and |}. Put a | and then the text that is supposed to be in the left column. On the next line, put another | followed by the text that should show up on the right. If you want to start a new line, use |-.
See, now you have a new line. That's basically all I know about writing in columns... hope it helps a bit. Time Questions 17:17, 25 August 2009 (EDT)

THanks for that :) ANd how would i center it in the page? BTW, is Template:Shroominvitation that page :) TucayoSig.png Thanks again :)

Good question... unfortunately, I don't know the answer, but I'm sure you can find it somewhere on this page ;) Time Questions 17:49, 25 August 2009 (EDT)

Yoshi! Why is it too early, its exactly a week ago today? Yellow-Yoshi-127.pngYellowYoshi127Yellow-Yoshi-127.png Look in the archives, last image was 7 days ago.

The image is changed at 17:00 EST on Thursdays, so you were 3 hours to early. Sorry! By the way, you also picked the wrong picture - it had 9 "positive" votes, but the Super Sluggers one as well, and this was nominated earlier. Time Questions 14:15, 27 August 2009 (EDT)

Hey, no problem, thanks for trying to help! I live in Germany where it's just an hour later as well :) Actually, it's written nowhere on the page that it's changed at 17:00 EST, so you couldn't know. It has just always been done this way and should be retained. I'm going to write the time on the FI in order to avoid confusion in future. Time Questions 14:23, 27 August 2009 (EDT)
