Retconning controversy[edit]

Argh, I hate it when people try to say things are being retconned in the series. It disrupts and breaks the continuity of the games in the Mario franchise. What do you think? Lcrossmk8 (talk) 23:06, 28 January 2018 (EST)

I don't see the retconning. Captain Goomba and the Mario Bros interact with Spangle at clearly different times, so I don't see any continuity holes. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 23:09, 28 January 2018 (EST)

RE: Derived species[edit]

I wanted to include Baby Yoshi on the infobox in some way rather than remove the user's edit outright and to parallel with Yoshi (species) being listed as Baby Yoshis' parent species. Technically they are the same, but like Baby Cheep and Blooper Baby, they're based on the "main" and more prominent adult species (Cheep Cheep, Blooper etc.), which was why I listed it as "derived".

Hey, I know it was tough, but thanks for reverting all of that vandalism! I swear, you were totally on top of things before I could do the same! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 08:42, 3 February 2018 (EST)

No problem[edit]

There were a few links left, so I figured I'd do them myself. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:02, 6 February 2018 (EST)

Recent edits related to a proposal[edit]

Hey there, I have seen that you've done some "maintenance edits" and such to certain character articles (because I'm usually focusing on doing edits related to stuff involving the Mario girls when I get the chance). I haven't been "in the zone" regarding editing stuff as of late; can you tell me which proposal you were targeting which passed and can't be "reversed" unless someone else says otherwise via another proposal or other legitimate means? Thanks in advance. --M. C. - Profile | Talk Page 10:45, 13 February 2018 (EST)

I had a feeling that you were the person who created the proposal in question. And if I not mistaken, I see that you definitely did some maintenance on the image captions for the Princess Peach article epsecially? Was wondering about that too because that kinda caught me off guard there too. --M. C. - Profile | Talk Page 11:23, 13 February 2018 (EST)

Mii costume[edit]

I noticed you uploaded that mii costume for Mario & Sonic. Do you have a save state of the game with everything unlocked?--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 15:23, 18 February 2018 (EST)

Well thank goodness anyway because I do NOT have the patience to go through that game. Assuming you're planning to take care of the other costumes, you should uploaded the save file afterwards to gamefaqs.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 15:27, 18 February 2018 (EST)

Re: References should go after periods, commas, parentheses, etc.[edit]

Well, I wasn't aware that MarioWiki didn't have such a policy, however, somebody should seriously make a proposal about this and make it mandatory to have references go after periods, commas, parentheses, etc. or perhaps create a bot like Wikipedia does, as it's ludacris as for how many articles have references doing so or a hybrid of the two. I've already asked asked the site's founder Steve about this problem, but he simply said, "...Wikipedia might have better bots." --Jjrapper100 (talk) 12:00, 9 March 2018 (EST)

RE: Reddit[edit]

I'll admit, we got ourselves a grey area or blurred line when it comes to fan content related to the page List of Mario references on the Internet. Would a policy page contain rules on what is allowed fan creations? Where would that be? It seems to be unwritten word what is allowed and disallowed. {{Wikipolicy}} --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:25, 10 March 2018 (EST)

Then again, at the very top of the page, This list does not include fan-made works dedicated to the Mario franchise and its games, nor does it include walkthroughs of Mario games. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:27, 10 March 2018 (EST)
I consider Reddit more of a fancy blog, news feed, fan art, discussion, etc., run by a community of fans more than anything. It's the slippery slope fallacy I am seeing keeping Reddit as content for the page, meaning we would need to include all sorts of fanmade website content. Too numerous. We need written word if we should continue this. What should the rules be? Ultimately, when we think "reference", we think "small nod to a series", which Nintendo-themed Subreddits are far from small nods. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:36, 10 March 2018 (EST)
Posts on Reddit are like thread submissions on Mario Boards or any forum ever. Content like this can be created at will, which exist in the billions or trillions. Maybe even more. Fan-created subs and threads are not formal references to the Mario series. As a side note, we don't even accept fan theories, which would clash with canonicity policy. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:49, 10 March 2018 (EST)
It just furthers my point of needing some sort of policy page or revision to the canonicity policy page. MarioWiki:Fan content; what should be allowed/disallowed and how to handle it (mix it with articles, separate articles, etc.). If you insist on keeping the Reddit part, I suggest creating a new page in a similar manner as List of rumors and urban legends about Mario. I also suggest starting a discussion on the Mario Boards or the Discord server to get input from other users if we should have a policy about fan content. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:57, 10 March 2018 (EST)
I endorse Wildgoosespeeder here. An example of actual references on websites are 404 errors, such as those on IGN or Twitch. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 17:07, 10 March 2018 (EST)

Yoshi's Story Nintendo Power Player's Guide[edit]

File:Yoshi's Story Player's Guide.png is replacing File:Yoshi's Story Player's Guide.jpg, and you are still using the JPEG on your userpage. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:17, 30 March 2018 (EDT)

Mario is Missing Globulator[edit]

Do you know if deluxe edition has any cities not in the base version of Mario is missing MS-DOS. — Ryansinbela 23:12, 1 March 2018 (EDT)


I really think you should have broken that up into multiple smaller proposals for each type of thing instead of doing all of that at once. I agree wholeheartedly with maybe 30% of it, but the remaining 70% of it is, in my eyes, abhorrent. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:46, 2 April 2018 (EDT)

That does not change the fact that omnibus proposals should be discouraged. Also, where on the forums was this? I never saw it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:11, 2 April 2018 (EDT)
You mean the proposal you ran through while I was blocked? I'm a bit miffed about that, myself, but whatever. Anyways, two-option omnibus proposals are flawed by design, as if they don't pass, then you'll have to make yet another one to do the universally-agreed changes at any point, and if they pass, then a bunch of less-agreeable stuff happens. Anyways, dividing the population into sections based off of wide points when the actual differences are more specific and complicated is not only bad, it's what corrupt governments do, and therefore I find it to be very bad, myself. Nevertheless, if this passes, you won't ever have to hear from me again, so take solace in that. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:20, 2 April 2018 (EDT)
OK, I may have been a little emotional on the last response, but I still think this is a bad idea. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:04, 2 April 2018 (EDT)

Rocky KoopaMole Thingy[edit]

Heya there, just wondering, why is it a no-go to consider a mole a derivative of a Koopa, but perfectly fine to consider a sea slug a derivative of a bat, a mosquito derivative of a bee, and an alien octopus a derivative of a shiitake mushroom? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:14, 14 April 2018 (EDT)

Octoomba doesn't look any more like a Goomba than a Burt does, and as I previously stated, the Japanese names of Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench have been linked since Monty Mole's inception. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:33, 14 April 2018 (EDT)
They were inspired by a thing that, at the very least, was a Koopa when it was first thought up. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:36, 14 April 2018 (EDT)
What about Super Mario Maker? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:53, 14 April 2018 (EDT)
The same game gave Bowser his modern appearance for the Super Mario World style, so not quite. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:58, 14 April 2018 (EDT)
They certainly can be made to fit with the mechanics, as shown by this old custom sprite sheet. Nintendo just didn't care about accuracy to style as much as they probably should have. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:14, 14 April 2018 (EDT)

Giant Bowser[edit]

Hello. If you are unaware of the situation the Giant Bowser article is in, I recommend you read from here. In a nutshell, the article was recreated covering the M&L games because they were the only officially named Giant Bowser forms. I realized later that that was not true and neither one is officially named. I'm going to create a proposal to deal with this issue, but I need to know if Bowser's giant form was ever referred to by name in any guides. LinkTheLefty (talk) said that it was called "Super Bowser" in the NSMBW Prima guide and that you had guides for 2 and U. If that is the case, could you tell me if the form is named in either of those? Thanks in advance.

Quite helpful. Looks like Super Bowser is the name.

Goomba Switch official name[edit]

Hi, you happen to own the Super Mario Odyssey Prima guide, correct? If so, would you mind checking if the conjecturally-named Goomba Switch has an official name? Thanks! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 16:47, 26 April 2018 (EDT)

If that's the case, I'd say "Goomba button" might be a good name to use, though I'm open to second opinions. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 16:57, 26 April 2018 (EDT)
Thanks! After I move the page, would you mind adding the page numbers in which the switch is referred to? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 17:02, 26 April 2018 (EDT)

Yellow Switch[edit]

Hi, would you mind checking your copy of the Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time Nintendo Power guide to find the official name of the yellow switches in Vim Factory? Thanks! MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 01:45, 9 May 2018 (EDT)

That Smash Bros. proposal...[edit]

I just tagged all the move pages that needed merged to one or more character pages - not actually merging, just putting either the {{merge to}} or {{split}} template on them. It took me an hour and thirty-five minutes.

Good luck fulfilling Rule 12 :p - Reboot (talk) 00:27, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

Some may need re-tagged though TBH, this looks....odd. (And for the record, I am all for merging the moves and always have been, so I might actually chip in a bit with this part. Maybe.) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:37, 19 June 2018 (EDT)
Yeah, I know {{split}} looks odd, but it's accurate (it's being split over multiple pages, and the move page itself isn't listed) and was the best of the options, since {{merge to}} is single-target.
And the basic point was that this will be a crapton and a half of work, especially when you consider you can't just dump the contents of the move pages on the character pages - they'll need to be formatted (...possibly something to discuss. maybe make a template), some will need split and a *lot* will need cut down in major & minor ways. - Reboot (talk) 00:59, 19 June 2018 (EDT)
I agree with Reboot on the possibility of maybe having the individual pages on non-Mario moves trimmed rather than being outright merged – maybe only merge the parts about how to perform the given move and keep the parts about the move's effects split (after all, that half of the information is how Mario characters "interact" with the move). MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 01:19, 19 June 2018 (EDT)
I was not suggesting not merging. Just that blurbs on an overview page are shorter than a whole page by design. - Reboot (talk) 01:34, 19 June 2018 (EDT)
Oh, must have misread your comment there... MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 23:41, 23 June 2018 (EDT)
