Status Problem[edit]

Okay, Fawfulfury65 told me that I could not keep my status, but Sonic & Boofan, has like 3 subpages about in game models! DKPetey99DKPetey99TCE 16:28, 18 May 2011 (EDT)

No FF65 is going to delete it, I was asking why statuses aren't allowed but in-game models as sub-pages are! If you can't help me, forget it! DKPetey99DKPetey99TCE 16:37, 18 May 2011 (EDT)
And I didn't know I was ignoring a sysop, she said she'll delete it, so I'm was waiting for that! DKPetey99DKPetey99TCE 16:40, 18 May 2011 (EDT)

<gallery> tags[edit]

Hello 22fiftyseven. Is there a way to change how the <gallery> tags function - like say change it's default function from creating 4 in a row into 5 in a row? It would be beneficial to very long gallery pages, saves some of our time, and it actually fits under the resolution of 1024 X 768; even if some of the galleries like Gallery:Super Mario 64, and Gallery:Super Mario Galaxy 2 already have that "manually" functioned with <gallery perrow=5>. I mean come on, you guys somehow forced those galleries to place itself in the center/middle of the page without even using the <center> tags - which I find surprising! Please respond back. --RAP.pngRAP... 16:28, 22 July 2011 (EDT)

Imageframe(?) tag?[edit]

Hello 2257, I recall seeing some kind of imageframe tag being used in one of the articles in MarioWiki and I can't seem to figure out where it is, or what the name is. I need to know what is the name of the tag, and how it functions. As far as my knowledge goes, it allows you to display two images in a frame without any overlapping. Do you know what it is? Can you please assist me? --RAP.pngRAP... 21:39, 7 November 2011 (EST)


Could the Romanian language be added to MarioWiki:Babel? This is because I am a native speaker of this language. Please, answer me! Thanks! --File:Super-Radio.gifSuper Radio

And, um, yeah... Wayoshi's idea should be OK, I mean, to make other Super Mario Wikis with other languages! (I can contribute!) --File:Super-Radio.gifSuper Radio


OK, thanks a lot for the answer. --File:Super-Radio.gifSuper Radio

And another question:[edit]

Could the Romanian language be added at the foreign table (or how is this named), please? --File:Super-Radio.gifSuper Radio

I took care of it. --Glowsquid 07:32, 7 February 2012 (EST)

As the title says, what do the NOA and NOE mean ?

For example:

In foreign languages (no matter was the article) :

Has it any relation with Northern America.....?

I was wondering if it were OK to use one of your userboxes? It's because I'm a pretty big fan of beta things, too. Thank you for reading/answering my question. NessPeppyTails (talk) 22:27, 17 October 2012 (EDT)NessPeppyTails

RE: Monobook[edit]

Hey. Thanks for the reply, I'm still no good at all this skin stuff. I admit that I don't really know the difference between cascade style sheet and custom Javascript. Is it just that they are both able to do different things? Anyway, I'm really sorry to bother you with all this, but I just need some advice. But I've messed around with that CSS Tutorial you showed me in the chat, and I found some cool thing there. I even took a look at other user's monobooks here, including yours ^^. I had a whirl at importing your monobook.css, and I quite liked it. I didn't keep it, though. What I'll find handy for a skin is having the link to recent changes on the side bar to automatically go to;
Because that would be easier than always clicking the link "Hide my edits", because I never really need to see my edits, just stuff that other users are doing. So just one request, could you please write me a code to change that sidebar link? You don't have to, but that would be fantastic. Thanks!

Additionally, what is the difference between the /monobook and the /common ?
It works perfectly, thanks! You're the best. But I do have one more question, I hope you don't mind. I have previously tried writing my /monobook.js, and it seemed to work when I previewed it before it was created, but it hasn't worked thereafter. Please take a look at User:YoshiKong/monobook.js. I wanna add a link to my work page on the links at the top of the page (between "talk" and "preferences"). Can you figure out where I went wrong? And is it able to be merged with my /common.js ?
Thanks so much! :D

Hey, I don't know if you're still around or not...[edit]

I just wanted to say thanks. I've been doing a lot of writing and world-building over the past few years, delving deeper and deeper into the details of how everything manages to work the way it does. It adds a layer of plausability and depth that I wouldn't be able to work with otherwise, and I think it all started with your theory on Evanadium. That kick-started my own detail work, realizing that the devil is in the details (so to speak), and I've gotten a lot of positive feedback regarding the level of detail I've put into my world-building. So I just wanted to say thank you for sharing Evanadium those years ago. It seriously changed my life. Thanks. YourBuddyBill (talk) 10:44, 10 August 2014 (EDT)

Re:Rub characters template[edit]

Before I do anything else, I just like to know what a "ruby characters" template is. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 14:14, 7 November 2015 (EST)

Hm, that's what I thought. Our wiki doesn't have an equivalent, but I've been suggested by an admin and MarioWiki:Japanese to use span class explain tags as in Big Lantern Ghost's profile. I wasn't aware of the existence of a ruby tag, but I do think our wiki can benefit from a template of either the two since explain tags are usually a pain to write out anyway. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 14:29, 7 November 2015 (EST)
あのう、as for that ruby character template, I suggested the idea on 13 February 2016 but Walkazo didn't reply me even though she was responding on something else later so I guess she personally didn't approve of the idea. It seems to be because many pages have already started to use <span class=explain title="..."></span> so switching to a new template will be huge work and leaving two ways of introducing furigana will be messy and look inconsistent.

furigana revisited[edit]

How are you going to handle cases like

Goombella: 「『ビビアン』よ
カゲ三人さんにんぐみ一人ひとりで いちばんしたいもうと
・・・じゃなくて おとうと

こうげきりょくは『1』 ぼうぎょりょくは『0』よ
これといった とくちょうは ないみたい

Seems there's nothing special here.

where furigana will make the left and right columns out of sync? A gossip-loving Toad (Talk) 04:47, 7 May 2016 (EDT)

This works, but there is a side problem: the wiki has a rather small font size, namely 12.7px for text and 12px for references. On a computer, this means that furigana will be about 6 or 7 px. An obvious solution is to have larger fonts or even special divs for game dialogues, like the one on The Cutting Room Floor, but I'm wondering what to do to the foreign name boxes on this wiki. Perhaps as
Language Name Meaning
Japanese ほうき星の天文台 (ほうきぼしのてんもんだい)
Hōkiboshi no Tenmondai
Comet Observatory

(This is the format used on the Japanese Wikipedia)? I'd like to see furigana when presenting original game text and dialogs, though. I have already used it once. A gossip-loving Toad (Talk) 05:08, 14 May 2016 (EDT)


Some things MW:JAPANESE has not yet covered:

  1. Should 鳳凰ほうおう be romanized as Hōō or Hō'ō ? Wiktionary does not include the apostrophe but I added it since I think it looks better when added.
  2. Sometimes a word is written in katakana but really from hiragana. Do you think they should still be romanized using the rules for hiragana? For example, "ノコタロウ" is derived from 太郎たろう. I suppose that should still be romanized as "Nokotarō" instead of "Nokotarou"?
