Music[edit]

Hey, welcome! Thanks for trying to help with uploading a song for New Super Mario Bros. U, but there's a few things you should keep in mind.

  • Audio files should be in an .oga format.
  • Audio should be 30 seconds or less as music samples, the entire song should not be uploaded unless it fits in that length.
  • Please categorize and fill out the aboutfile template correctly, as shown here:

Hello, Wynn Liaw. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly use the {{aboutfile}} template. What you were doing looks like this, and it is an inconvenience for other users to fix up the template. It is simple to learn how to format it correctly. The pre-loaded coding is shown below.

{{aboutfile
|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|3=Artist
|4=Describe edits, if any
|5=Other versions (use file link)
}}

Just replace the necessary parts with that corresponding information, and remove the entire line of the variable(s) you don't use. If you do not wish to use the template at all, then it is acceptable to simply remove it before you upload the file. Please consider the above information before uploading more files. If you continue using {{aboutfile}} incorrectly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Hello, Wynn Liaw. Good job on your recent uploads. But when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly categorize the file. It is simple to learn how to correctly do so. Just search for the correct category by starting with the following groups:

Images Audio/Video Files

When uploading, copy the full title of the category with square brackets, and insert it into the summary text box (below the {{aboutfile}} template), replacing the {{uncategorized}} template entirely. For example, files related to the game Super Mario World would use:

[[Category:Super Mario World Images]]
or
[[Category:Super Mario World Media Files]]

Please consider the above information before uploading more files. Keep in mind some files can belong to multiple categories. Don't put images into media categories and vise-versa. If you continue uploading files without categorizing them correctly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Just follow these guidelines and you'll be good to go! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:37, October 12, 2019 (EDT)

Media file names[edit]

Please try to avoid using the file name for the "pipe1=" (the display name) and "description1=" (the description). These should be a name and description for the song, respectively. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 23:02, October 26, 2019 (EDT)


On a different note, please do not use parentheses { () } in file names, as they are against the naming conventions in the Image Use Policy. "Avoid using punctuation (brackets, colons, dashes, etc.), superfluous words, conversational names and any other padding that may make names longer and more complicated than they need to be." Trig - 07:57, October 31, 2019 (EDT)

Moving files[edit]

In the future, after moving a file, be sure to change all of the pages that still use the old name (listed under "File usage") to the new name, then mark the old name for deletion with {{delete}}.

Also, regarding your userpage, please avoid using mainspace templates like {{character-infobox}} on userspace (see MarioWiki:Userspace). You are free to copy the code from the template page and customize it however you like, though. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 08:38, October 28, 2019 (EDT)

If you need any other help, I have a guide here. Trig - 08:51, October 28, 2019 (EDT)

Please follow what I've explained above. We don't keep file redirects, so the old file name must be marked for deletion. If you're not sure about anything, don't hesitate to ask. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 05:04, November 1, 2019 (EDT)

Please stop not marking file redirects for deletion 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.

You need to tag the old names with {{delete}} to let admins know they should be deleted in case they get missed (or at least let an admin know directly, if you moved too many at once for example). To save from moving files, try to be more careful with the file names. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 02:16, November 7, 2019 (EST)

File extensions[edit]

Just to let you know, files should be uploaded in a lowercase extension (png, not PNG). Anything important regarding file usage you can find on MarioWiki:Image use policy. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 05:07, November 15, 2019 (EST)

Emulator Screenshots[edit]

You may want to retake screenshots of your recent uploads by uploading them in their native resolution. They will look better that way. You can see a guide I made several years ago here. For example, your Super Mario World and Super Mario Land screeenshots could use such an improvement. It's not just limited to those uploads though. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 12:22, November 19, 2019 (EST)

Second reminder[edit]

This reminder has been overturned by the MarioWiki staff. The original reminder can still be viewed.
Please stop not making file extensions lowercase 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.

As Mario jc reminded you above, please be extremely careful about the casing of the extension you add to filenames. They need to be all lowercase as per policy, and yet you have still forgone this multiple times. Please try to be more careful about this, otherwise you might start seeing warnings.

Yes, and he moved them correctly and marked the redirect for deletion afterwards. This was very likely an accident. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 05:08, November 21, 2019 (EST)

Banzai Bill sprite[edit]

The sprite you uploaded was aken from the TSR icon, but he borders of the icon are actually smaller than the sprite itself; basically, take it from the sheet, no the icon. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:56, November 22, 2019 (EST)

FNC[edit]

The file, formerly titled File:Super Mario Land Mario.PNG is now File:SML Mario Standing Sprite.png. It is used on your main page. Have a good one. Trig - 13:14, December 8, 2019 (EST)

When moving files...[edit]

Hey, thanks for moving a lot of the files that you are to be appropriate in form. I do request, however that you double check 'What Links Here' after putting a file up for deletion and if it appears on either The RAP test, User talk:RAP/test/3 or one of my three sandboxes, to either replace the name on the RAP test or to remove it from my sandbox. Thank you! You may want to check out the RAP test anyway, as it's basically the image quality tag listed by game instead of by alphabet. Trig Jegman - 09:10, January 19, 2020 (EST)
