Reminder[edit]

Hey, glad you're already enjoying your time here on the wiki! But please refrain from making comments on the BJAODN just for the sake of making comments. Comments are usually added to a subject you yourself added or to ones which were recently added and are meant to improve the humor of the subject, not just to be simply "there". Please read the rules of the BJAODN for more info. Time is better spent on mainspace articles, anyway. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:45, 31 October 2016 (EDT)

Please stop adding comments to the BJAODN 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.
Perhaps you didn't see my above post. Ignore the BJAODN for now. There's nothing important you can do with it at the moment. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:31, 31 October 2016 (EDT)

Comments[edit]

Just a heads up, you cannot remove comments under any circumstances on this wiki, (even your own). The only comments you can delete are flames and acts of vandalism or spam as per the courtesy policy. You're not in real trouble since you're still new but please refrain from doing this in the future, thanks. :) Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 01:52, 31 October 2016 (EDT)

Removing reminders[edit]

Hi! You can't remove an official reminder or warning you got. But, if you feel you have wrongly received a reminder or a warning, you can discuss the case on MarioWiki:Appeals. The administrators will look after this, but if they feel the reminder should stand, you can't overturn their decision. I also want to point you that you can't appeal a reminder or a warning you got by the administrators. To avoid many problems, you can also take a look to the rules of this wiki. --LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 15:43, 31 October 2016 (EDT)

BJAODN Warning[edit]

Warning.svg
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If this warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You seem to not be getting the hint, and now you tried to vote in a discussion that ended in 2009! Please refrain from posting anymore unneeded and meaningless comments in the BJAODN and spend more time on mainspace articles. Otherwise, I will have to get an admin involved, and I really don't want to do that... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:08, 31 October 2016 (EDT)

I'll get involved, please stop editing BJAODN and focus on mainspace articles. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 23:09, 31 October 2016 (EDT)
Now you're vandalizing pages, what the heck?! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:19, 1 November 2016 (EDT)
I meant to reply to this earlier. I won't do that again, sorry. That was a really bad decision. Although I woulsn't call it vandalizing, more like spamming. But that's beside the point, I guess. -Topmaniac
Spamming is usually filling pages with external links. Vandalism is tarnishing a page with useless information. See here if you want more info. But, yes, that's besides the point. Don't do anything like that again, please! Instead, see what you can do to help the wiki. :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:24, 2 November 2016 (EDT)

Going Forward...[edit]

I'll focus on contributing useful things to the main articles from now on. -Topmaniac (still working on my signature) 13:56, 1 November 2016 (EDT)~

Reminder[edit]

Please stop removing comments 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.

I reminded you about this before, and now I'm going to do it again. You cannot remove comments under any circumstance on certain wikis like Wikipedia it may be allowed but here it's strictly prohibited. Please read the Warning Policy for more information. Thanks. :) Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 15:51, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

Name Change?[edit]

Why can't I edit the name change page to add a username change request? Is it because I have some warnings and reminders on my account?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Topmaniac (talk).

No you need to be autoconfirmed to do that which will be in 4 days. Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 20:55, 1 November 2016 (EDT)
Okay, thank you! I'll use tat time to make sure I actually want the change :)
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Topmaniac (talk).

Signature Question[edit]

Can we use rainbow text in our signature, like the coding from an online rainbow text generator? 23:01, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

Yes you can use anything in your sig as long as it has nothing inappropriate in it and it's size is within this box. Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 23:04, 1 November 2016 (EDT)
Sure, just use coding like this. See Help:Format for the colors. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:06, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

Or you can do this as an easier way. Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 23:09, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

And to top it off, to color in links, do this ????. Fawful Battle 2nd time.png The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Jojora MnL.png 23:12, 1 November 2016 (EDT)
Thank you, guys! When I'm autoconfirmed (which should be tomorrow night), I'll make my signature page. :) 23:15, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

...[edit]

Lastwarn.svg
This is your last warning. The next time you break the rules in any way, you will be blocked from editing the Super Mario Wiki.
If this last warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

...All right. I'm going to be as clear and as blunt as I can. Stay off the BJAODN unless you have something relevant to add to the content. Really. Final warning. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:31, 2 November 2016 (EDT)

My User Page[edit]

As you can tell, the top of my user page is rather messed up. How do I get my words onto a separate line and eliminate those vertical lines both before and after the box? Lava Spire Daredevil Run 13:29, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

Put in {{userboxtop}}, then the box, and end the template with |}. Doing this will create a userbox tower on the left, like you would see on my page. I'm not sure what you mean by getting your words onto separate lines, though, as they already look like they are. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:18, 4 November 2016 (EDT)
One other thing, be sure to hit the "Show preview" button at the bottom to see the changes to your edit, and then hit "Save page" once you're satisfied. It makes it easier to edit the page you're on and make changes, as well as not filling up the Recent Changes with too many edits from your profile. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:32, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

Edit: I made it look more I wanted. Thank you for the help! Lava Spire Daredevil Run 14:39, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

You still appear to be having trouble, though. Copying this coding should help:

Lava Spire Daredevil Run's Userbox Tower
vg-1

(I can't get it to show up in the coding box for some reason...)

Anything else unrelated to userboxes would go below it, such as information about you. If you want help or inspiration, you can always view the sources of other user's pages. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:56, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

It worked! Thank you so much for your help! Lava Spire Daredevil Run 15:07, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

Last chance[edit]

Topmaniac, the admins have agreed on this informal message as one last chance for you to improve your behaviour. We strongly suggest that you closely read our warning policy, which has already been provided to you in each of your four warning templates which you have continually ignored. It is extremely important that you read and act upon what other users have been telling you: doing so would have spared the need for you to receive so many warnings in the first place. As such, your appeals to remove two of your warnings have been ruled to stand. You'd better tread carefully from here on in, because further altering comments after you have being warned for it, coupled with your last warning will only guarantee you an instant ban from the wiki.

This is your last chance.

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 15:28, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

I understand, and I will be sure to obey the rules as well as listen to other users from now on. Thank you for giving me this last chance. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 21:10, 6 November 2016 (EST)

Redirects[edit]

Actually, it's more advised that you leave the redirects alone since those redirects you're creating are supposed to be complete articles on their own. In other words, episodes should get their own article. Check Good Egg Galaxy level articles for an example (i.e. A Snack of Cosmic Proportions) get their own articles. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 21:03, 6 November 2016 (EST)

Sorry, didn't realize that. I had just noticed that several of the mission links on the Super Mario Galaxy page redirected to the relevant section of the Galaxy article, so I thought that was all that needed to be done to eliminate the red links in the galaxy table. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 21:08, 6 November 2016 (EST)
It's okay. This is actually a fairly recent change that was occurring before it came to a stop, which is why it looks incomplete or why redirects are still there. I'm just letting you know. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 21:11, 6 November 2016 (EST)

I'm back[edit]

Sorry for all the trouble I caused before. I'll try to be a good contributor from now on. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 18:53, 9 December 2016 (EST)

Also, can I take out the block notice from my user page since my block is over? It's kinda embarrassing. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 20:53, 9 December 2016 (EST)
Didn't even noticed you asked for it to be removed. Took care of that for you :) Welcome back! Remember, if you ever need help, you can ask for it or take a look at your welcome template. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:10, 9 December 2016 (EST)

Problem on the Mario Boards[edit]

I just finished serving a 30-day ban from the Mario Boards and I can see the boards now, but I can't post, see anyone's profiles, or PM anyone on the boards. Why not? And how long until that fixes itself? Thank you. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 19:14, 10 December 2016 (EST)

Best contact an admin about that rather than post on your own talk page. No one gets a notification when it's on your talk page :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:16, 10 December 2016 (EST)
Okay, thanks for the help! :) 19:33, 10 December 2016 (EST)

Edit: This has now been resolved. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 09:18, 12 December 2016 (EST)

Name Changes on the Wiki[edit]

Never mind. I need to learn patience. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 20:41, 15 December 2016 (EST)

To be honest, I was waiting to see if you'd reneg on the request because it seemed a terrible and reactionary name to me, but if you insist, sure I'll go ahead. --Glowsquid (talk) 21:06, 15 December 2016 (EST)
Oh, to be clear, by "terrible and reactionary name", I meant the "negative karma" one. I legit missed the latest, sorry. --Glowsquid (talk) 21:07, 15 December 2016 (EST)
Thanks for holding off :). I probably would have wanted to get rid of that name soon after I got it. I'm not sure what was going through my head when I requested that. I like this one a lot better. Thanks for the change! Lava Spire Daredevil Run 21:44, 15 December 2016 (EST)

Edits[edit]

May I ask why you're making random, needless edits on pages? If you'd like to test or experiment with wiki coding, you can use the sandbox. Also just as a sidenote: Whenever you name a game title, you should always write it in italics, by placing two apostrophes before and after it (so typing ''[[Super Mario Galaxy]]'' produces Super Mario Galaxy) Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 07:45, 18 December 2016 (EST)

I guess I was simply bored, I'm not completely sure, to be honest. But I'll stop. And thanks for telling me about the sandbox and italics, I'll remember both of those things. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 07:48, 18 December 2016 (EST)

Sandbox[edit]

User:Slytherin/Sandbox

Click that link and start making your sandbox. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:10, 18 December 2016 (EST)

Thank you! Lava Spire Daredevil Run 14:09, 18 December 2016 (EST)

While you can think of the sandbox as your own personal workspace, it can't be a place for discussions, mainly because no one else can edit it aside from admins. The sandbox is a place for you to work on matters related to the wiki, so this is kinda deviating from that.

Also, name changes can only happen twice within a year, so make sure you choose carefully, as you won't be able to change it again until near the end of 2017. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:09, 19 December 2016 (EST)

I was editing my signature...[edit]

And now some of the text on my user talk page is the same font color and style as my signature. How interesting. Lava Spire Daredevil Run 21:04, 18 December 2016 (EST)

And I definitely didn't intend for that <b> code to be part of my sig, but oh well. Guess I'll just deal with it.
You're missing the </b> and </font color> at the end that "closes" the bold and color formatting, so it looks like this: [[User:Slytherin|<font color=#0080FF><b><i>Slytherin</i></b></font color>]] Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:30, 18 December 2016 (EST)

Last warning[edit]

Lastwarn.svg
This is your last warning. The next time you break the rules in any way, you will be blocked from editing the Super Mario Wiki.
If this last warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

Do not think we're not aware of your edits as an anonymous user. Your pointless edits that have absolutely no relation to the article, which have been addressed once already no less, falls under acts of minor vandalism, and not only that, you even reverted it as a registered user as if to pass it off as another user's unconstructive edit. Considering you've been blocked once before, I suggest you be more serious with your edits and keep these kinds of edits off of mainspace if you wish to continue editing the wiki. Thanks. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 20:42, 19 December 2016 (EST)

Where to find some pages...[edit]

Could someone please link me to the name change page? I'd also like to help create some of the pages for the Super Mario Galaxy missions. Which mission should I start with?

Thanks for any help!

This is the name change page. However, I have taken up working on the Super Mario Galaxy pages as a project I'm working on, and I'm nearly done by this point. Although, if you want to find some pages that need help, MarioWiki:Maintenance is a good place to start, as well as The 'Shroom Spotlight. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:27, 4 May 2017 (EDT)

Last chance[edit]

Warning.svg
This is a warning to stop your inappropriate behavior (removing a warning) on the Super Mario Wiki. Please adhere to the rules or you will be blocked from editing this site.
If this warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

You cannot remove warnings without appealing them first (or in this case, without contacting another admin first if you feel it was undeserved) - they are permanent records. Given that you've just returned from a block, were reminded of removing comments/reminders a few times, and even outright stated you wouldn't break the rules, consider this a final warning. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 08:02, 5 May 2017 (EDT)

I know I'm not supposed to remove warnings from my page. I thought it wouldn't be so bad if I just took out the template, because I didn't like seeing that glaring icon on my page. But now I know better. Sorry-I definitely don't want to be blocked again. -Slytherin

RE:Nice Job![edit]

Thanks! It's certainly taking a while to get through them all :P

And don't worry about sounding weird. I don't mind. :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:37, 6 May 2017 (EDT)

My Signature[edit]

Why is my signature now a rediret? And how do I fix t?

Marking User:Slytherin/sig up for deletion could fix it? Once it's actually deleted anyway. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:15, 7 May 2017 (EDT)
No, no, no, you want the redirect deleted. Click the link above, then on the page, click the link in the (Redirected from...) bit above, then place the {{delete}} there (maybe with a reason like "Sig redirect"). Remove the {{delete-request}} from and update your actual sig. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:36, 7 May 2017 (EDT)
I clicked the Redirected from but I can't edit that page.
Ah. I'll pass the word on, then. See if an administrator can help. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:35, 7 May 2017 (EDT)

Images for Super Mario Galaxy missions[edit]

I noticed that some of the Super Mario Galaxy mission articles need images. Would it be okay if I took screenshots of those missions with my phone and then uploaded them here?

That would not be recommended (otherwise, I would be doing that myself :P ). An emulator or capture card would be best, as capturing an image with your phone can be blurry and have the wrong resolution. And it just looks unprofessional.
Additionally, I don't know if you noticed the change in policy, but welcoming users purely for the sake of welcoming them is prohibited. This way we don't have thousands of talk pages consisting of just the welcome template. If you're talking to them by any other method (i.e. responding to their message), then you can include the welcome template then.
Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:48, 11 May 2017 (EDT)

Absolute Final Warning[edit]

Lastwarn.svg
This is your last warning. The next time you break the rules in any way, you will be blocked from editing the Super Mario Wiki.
If this last warning was not issued by an administrator and you feel it was undeserved, you may appeal it.

I'm trying to help you with your issues, but you are still causing some problems. Adding nonsense into articles is big no. Even if you're bored (which you have claimed to be in the past when doing something like this), that does not make it okay to vandalize pages.

This will be your absolute final warning. Any more rule breaking from here on out will result in a ban. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:35, 11 May 2017 (EDT)

Goodbye[edit]

This is Lava Spire Daredevil Run, and I just wanted to say that I am very sorry for all the trouble I caused here at the wiki. I should have had more self-control and common sense, and listened when others were trying to tell me things. Thank you all so much for helping me, especially Alex95 and Mario jc. I appreciate you all, and I hope this wiki continues to flourish and grow.
