Even een test bericht achterlaten in mijn gesprekken. (Just leaving a test message in my discussions).


Mario Kart 7 Images[edit]

  • How were you able to upload good quality Mario Kart 7 screenshots? From what I recall, there was no way for you to take screenshots of your game play footage. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 08:03, 9 June 2012 (EDT)


I have a 3DS Capture Device, which currently allows me to make Screenshots without much action, as well as video's on 5 FPS. For video samples, look at one of my YouTube Channels (UltimatePisman of MKGirlism).

Image Categories[edit]

  • For your future image uploads, you might want to consider adding categories onto them, depending on which game they're from. For example, if you upload an image that came from Super Mario 64, the category that you should type into the image summary would be [[Category:Super Mario 64 Images]].
    This is just something to keep in mind, just to help with the accuracy of which images are from which games. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 07:59, 29 October 2012 (EDT)

3DS images[edit]

How do you get them? Super Waluigi 15:04, 28 June 2012 (EDT)

Why does it look emulated? Super Waluigi 15:09, 28 June 2012 (EDT)
Last question; does a capture card come with a 3DS? If so, how does it look like? Super Waluigi 15:37, 28 June 2012 (EDT)
WHOA! How did you get that? I couldn't find it on ebay. Super Waluigi 17:26, 28 June 2012 (EDT)

I just didn't think that image needed to be there. --SmartieMaxx 11:09, 7 July 2012 (EDT)

All right, then! --SmartieMaxx 11:13, 7 July 2012 (EDT)

Capturing 3DS screenshots[edit]

Hi, how you can take screenshots from a 3DS without having to use an emulator? --NewSMBU (talk) 16:20, 7 July 2012 (EDT)

Okay, thanks. --NewSMBU (talk) 16:30, 7 July 2012 (EDT)

RE: Screenshot credit[edit]

Excuse me, and my apologies. Elaborating on what I said on Lakituthequick's talk page, I removed the artist name, because I wasn't aware that the screenshots were legit credit to you. As the involved parameter in {{Aboutfile}} was titled "Artist", I thought the credit would not be applicable to your name because the raw credit to the screenshot should go to Nintendo EAD, as they developed the sprites and features in the game/s. I recently saw your post here, and now that you explained the situation to me in detail, I can now see why the file's credit should be given to you on the Aboutfile. Again, I apologize and I urge you to keep up those uploads, because they are valuable images.

Mario Kart 7 maps[edit]

I've seen you uploaded pretty nice rips of the course maps from Mario Kart 7, yet there are some things I'm wondering. First, don't you think those rips need to be cropped so we could get rid of that blank space where players standing are supposed to be? and second, will you upload the course maps for retro tracks? so far the only one is for Wii Mushroom Gorge (JP: Wii Toad Canyon), I tell you this 'cause I'm adding the course maps into the Mario Kart 7 gallery and the rest is missing, so please tell me.


3DS screenshots.[edit]

Hi, I have noticed you have uploaded some sprites/screenshots from the 3DS. My question is, could you upload the icons like this one, but the MK7 ones?

Great Work![edit]

You're an amazing contributor to this wiki, especially in screenshots and GIFS. Keep up the great work! Marioart8.pngLuigiBlubberLuigihattip.png

Rainbow Road[edit]

I'm in consideration of nominating the Rainbow Road article to be a Featured Article, but the current quality of the article doesnt' meet the standards, in these case many sections are in need of more images, particulary, the portable versions of Mario Kart, so in case you have the time, would you consider adding screenshots from MK7 please? so we can improve the articel, just not right now.


It doesn't matterif they are 3, 5, 10, preferably the notable portions of the track like the wavy road, the saturn-like rings, the moon, etc.
Take your time, don't worry.


YOu have a DSTwo? Where'd you get it? Super Waluigi (talk) 17:54, 6 October 2012 (EDT)


I never thank you for the images so now I'm doing it, thank you. The article is still not worth being a FA, but sure it could be improved in several ways.

Hi, could you please remove that profanity (the f-word) from your userpage? Sorry, but there are kids and young as 7 surfing this website and we want to keep it as clean as possible.

Thanks, --driftmaster130 (TalkEdits) 18:23, 8 March 2013 (EST)

Just pointing out[edit]

"What I hate more than racism, are primitives, especially the ones that want to see me Banned."

I don't know if this is simply a translation error, but in English, "primitives" is almost always used as a racist term. So you uhh... may want to change your wording a bit. -Crocodile Dippy (talk) 00:04, 27 April 2013 (EDT)

User page[edit]

Could you please remove all the pejorative terms aimed at the other users from your user page: this kind of stuff is a violation of the courtesy policy, regardless of the specific terms you use. - Walkazo 19:46, 27 April 2013 (EDT)


Hallo! Ik ben erachter gekomen dat jij ook Nederlands praat. Kan jij toevallig ook sprites uploaden voor New Super Mario Bros. U? Yes man (talk) 13:54, 7 June 2013 (EDT)

Ik heb trouwens al antwoord gegeven op jouw bericht op mijn gebruikerspagina. Hou er a.u.b rekening mee dat ik de berichten die op mijn gebruikerspagina geplaatst worden ook op mijn gebruikerspagina beantwoord. ;-) Yes man (talk) 15:04, 14 June 2013 (EDT)


Could you upload a version of this with her eyes open? TomBoy (talk) 00:19, 9 July 2013 (EDT)
