  1. I still had a point.
  2. People say, "focus on the good parts of life and you'll be happy", but that glaring warning is really crawling onto me.
  3. My first completely normal string of conversations
  4. Wario tries to take over my talk page. I welcome him with apple pie and jasmine tea.

Medusiño MLA Italics

In that case the usage of the MLA style instead of the wiki's style will likely need a proposal somewhere, as a lot of the foreign name explanations on this wiki use quotes instead of italics for explanations, and there's a lot of failed proposals regarding the conversion of this wiki to be MLA.

re:Made in Wario Bonbon

I've asked the other staff to be certain but I don't think nuking the edit-rev is necessary. We have links to obscure, currently un-distributed material in other pages and the Dr. Mario-kun has (and continues to) posts scans of his work without evident legal issues - unlike what ROM sites may tell you, copyright infringement doesn't suddenly become legal if you do it for a time-limited period. --Glowsquid (talk) 11:37, March 29, 2023 (EDT)

This is just a dare made by Waluigi on if Wario can lick his own chest. Seems like Wario CAN lick his own chest. A little too well, his jaw is just buried inside and he needs a little help!

Response to your comment in the proposal

Posting here because I didn't want to leave a comment there. All I wanted was to vote and leave it there, I'm just sick and tired of people getting confrontational with me when I say no to something. I was hesitant on voting at first for this reason so once others had left opposition reasonings I thought my time to leave a simple "per all" vote was right, and debating actually does mentally wear me out a lot. I'd appreciate if people respected that for once. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 12:14, April 18, 2023 (EDT)

Right, I understand. This is, after all, a fan wiki on a media franchise. Arguing on its fictional constructs isn't all that important in the grand scheme of things, certainly much less so than one's mental health. (I myself am emotionally distant from these discussions, but I do enjoy arguing, if that makes sense.) -- KOOPA CON CARNE 12:19, April 18, 2023 (EDT)

"Made In Wario" Diary Quote's

In an index article showcasing almost every single dr. crygor quote (List of Dr. Crygor quotes), there's a section named "WarioWare Inc Mega Microgames Japanese diary entries". I made it on my own. The section features english translations of Dr. Crygor's entries from the japanese WWIMM website. Whilst the february entry is not inside a dropdown, all the march and april entries are collapsed in a dropdown. I've tried the best to correct some terms, like Aubulon-kun sounding like Orbulon, and Cut sounding like Kat.

Please make sure to analyze the diary entries section (above), and fix any obvious error present. Don't click Penny PnnyCrygr User contributions 19:41, April 22, 2023 (EDT)

Re:Winged Cloud

Actually, if you zoom in on the source, you can see that it's supposed to be ぐ due to the compound. Flipping through the Super Mario Advance 3 guide also shows the same (the other guides don't use furigana, at least when listing items). I think it's safe to consider it a mistake. Let's say there was a source that used く though. In that case, what I would do is list both names separately since the romanization differs but put them under the same meaning, i.e. use Jap, JapR, JapM, Jap2, and Jap2R, but no Jap2M.

RE:Template:Earth

About some of the countries I added on the template. They come from the "List of implied locations" article, I thought it would be nice to include them here too for completeness. If you think they need a little bit more to be included there, how about an "implied countries" entry that leads to said article at the end of the Countries row instead? --Conradd (talk) 03:49, April 29, 2023 (EDT)

How should Play Nintendo's Pics be displayed?

Pics section on Play Nintendo's website consists of galleries that Nintendo likes to remove every once in a while, so they need to be covered. An average gallery looks like this, a set of images with captions at the bottom.

Headache #1: Not every gallery has captions. Especially older ones. Just images.
Headache #2: Since images are the main part of the galleries, they should be displayed front and centre. {{Play Nintendo quiz}} template sounds like a great option, allowing us to display a caption below an image, but it looks really ugly without any caption. Using wiki's <gallery> would make it more challenging to view the images that are supposed to be the main focus of the section (also they'd require clicking them on desktop). Some files are VERY low quality.
Headache #3: Nintendo of America doesn't archive their old content. Archive.org barely saved any files, fortunately all the direct file links still work even for long deleted galleries.
Headache #4: Article size! How should we deal with that? Images take up space, they take longer to load a page, and I'm not a fan of [hide] buttons. Giving every gallery their own page could work, maybe?

Here's a preview. Feel free to reply on your talk page Spectrogram (talk) 14:03, May 23, 2023 (EDT)

I was planning on covering these galleries at some point, so I welcome your initiative. I think they are too light on content to warrant individual pages, but like you, I'm not sure how I would handle their coverage otherwise. I need to test out a few possibilities myself, then I will get back to you. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 16:32, May 23, 2023 (EDT)
How about something like this? It adapts to the screen size and still allows us to add captions. It probably would be better to have galleries split in their own articles anyway. The article size on mobile would be huge. Spectrogram (talk) 10:59, May 27, 2023 (EDT)
Yeah, that would be ideal for the images. I don't see why they shouldn't be placed in the same tables under [hide] buttons, though; they're convenient as far as loading times and mobile users are concerned and they don't take much effort to open. I am curious if you have a particular issue with them. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 11:28, May 27, 2023 (EDT)
I never liked the [hide] buttons (except in nav-templates and in some specific cases such as hiding a wall of data on a talk page for convenience). In tables they feel especially off. In this specific case, the table is already very cluttered. Giving the galleries individial pages just feels more right. Edit: not to mention, Nintendo isn't going to stop making these galleries. Article size will continue to grow as time goes by Spectrogram (talk) 11:55, May 27, 2023 (EDT)
Here's an example of how it would look like. I just don't see how we could store an ever increasing number of galleries on one page, really Spectrogram (talk) 06:18, May 28, 2023 (EDT)
The last gallery they made was for Luigi's Mansion 3 back in 2019, having seemingly put a cap on this sort of promotional content, so I wouldn't call their number "ever-increasing". I'm inclined to have these galleries covered on one list, but my personal preference isn't gospel. Porplemontage might make a better call on the organisation of these things since I suppose his web dev knowledge entails some manner of resource management that could prove helpful, so you could ask him for an opinion. Or make a proposal about the issue. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 09:26, May 28, 2023 (EDT)
There is a native <gallery mode="slideshow"> that works very similarly to the way galleries are displayed on Play Nintendo, and it would solve the issue of image overload. Unsure on whether or not we should use it in an article. Spectrogram (talk) 09:46, May 28, 2023 (EDT)
Oh wow, I never knew about that! Seems very useful, but I don't know how to operate the slideshow on mobile. There are no arrows or anything around it to switch between pics. Can't swipe either. Edit: NVM the arrows just weren't visible on my custom CSS. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 09:49, May 28, 2023 (EDT)~
Just checked as well. Unfortunately it appears there is no way to look through these images on mobile by default (that would be convenient and not confusing for the reader, that is). I really do not want to make a proposal on a topic two and a half people care about. Spectrogram (talk) 09:57, May 28, 2023 (EDT)
After going through many options, I believe this is how we should do the galleries. Images are the main focus of the article, each image has a readable caption below it. It looks good on desktop and even better on mobile. Spectrogram (talk) 07:10, May 30, 2023 (EDT)
Nice. Go ahead! Just make sure you find a place for these new articles in the Play Nintendo template. (I suggest creating two subsections in "Media": one for the articles pertaining to the Pics category, and one called "Miscellaneous" solely occupied by the wallpaper list.) By the by, you planning to make a list of Play Nintendo videos too? -- KOOPA CON CARNE 09:27, May 30, 2023 (EDT)
Yes, though it could prove very problematic. I'm afraid archive.org didn't save most of the deleted content. Spectrogram (talk) 09:55, May 30, 2023 (EDT)

Improper text during edit

What caused this text change in Gallery:Mario Kart 8 revision? Windy (talk) 17:42, July 31, 2023 (EDT)

I had a browser add-on that automatically turned the words "Wario" and "Waluigi" into inappropriate phrases. (marioboards.com) For funsies, never used one before and I wanted to experiment.

It literally says you MUST use /sig though. Shouldn't you change it to that to follow that rule? MHA Super Mushroom:) at 01:06, August 18, 2023 (EDT)
Please stop bothering them about this. It's saying only "sig" should be used as opposed to something like "signature"; I don't think it matters if it's uppercase or lowercase. Lucina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 07:24, August 18, 2023 (EDT)

SMRPG and crude CG

I was mostly looking at, for example, Frogfucious and Guerilla's models, which as seen by their official renders, look like they came straight out of 1996 showcase renders. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:24, September 18, 2023 (EDT)

It's not that noticeable in-game, considering how small these characters appear on the screen. Some models aren't even really polygon-impaired, such as Spikey's, Sky Troopa's, or Magikoopa's, and are comparable to what you'd see in other Nintendo-published games. I can believe the notion that these in-game models being recycled as promo renders where they are more clearly visible, warts and all, may have been intended to further emulate the original game's artistic direction, but it reads like speculation without definitive word from the developers and the statement I removed was in reference to what is seen in the game itself anyway. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 10:32, September 19, 2023 (EDT)

Re: "Evasion check"

In the stage article regarding your confusion with the term "evasion checks", a "check" in RPG terms is essentially an RNG mechanic that a game calculates for an action (for example, if TTYD used DnD mechanics, a character has to roll a 10 or higher on a 20-sided die to see if the attack connects). In context of here, what the description is essentially saying "attacks that always hit the target ignores the evasion drop". It's very jargony for something like TTYD tho, so I wouldn't mind a rewrite so you can understand it better. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:18, September 19, 2023 (EDT)

I get it now, thank you. I don't hang around much in the gaming sphere outside of this website, much less in RPG-oriented communities, so I apologise for my ignorance. Still, having re-googled the term now (obviously with RPG-related keywords), I couldn't find an index that would explain this word, just some Quora answer and several mentions on gaming Reddit communities; doesn't help that my desired results were hodgepodge'd with IBM-related programming concepts. What I want to get at is that, yes, the term is indeed too jargony and should be expanded upon in the article for n00bz. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 15:41, September 19, 2023 (EDT)

Mario Kart Tour's regarding "false items"

At first I see Builder Toad receiving Bob-omb Cannons and Explorer Toadette receiving Double Bob-ombs, which makes me a bit suspicious
But when I see Pengui Yellow Toad receiving Dash Rings instead of ice Flowers, I get agitated because it does not fit Penguin's powerups, like Penguin Mario and Toadette.
This also happens to Kamek when he has Cioin Box instead of Ice Flowers since he has magic, and it has sparkle trails, not to spew coins, contradicting Mario platforming games.
Golfer Luigi should have used Ice Flowers like he did in Mario Golf Super Rush, and Wintertime Larry should have used Ice Flowers because his clothes were made of snowflakes.
For Green Birdo, while it makes sense to have Fire Flowers just like she did in Super Mario Bros 2, it would make a bit of sense to receive Green Shells as her special item.
The worst offender will be Golden Mario with Fire Flowers since it is considered a false item and it would make sense to receive a Coin Box. Coin Box makes him OP, so it would make better sense to receive Lucky 7 instead.

Bonus: Gold Dry Bowser and Gold Shy Guy get explosive items than Coin Boxes, which makes no sense. Pierce Ng (talk)

Mario vs. Donkey Kong (GBA, Switch) vs. Mario vs. Donkey Kong (Game Boy Advance) Mario vs. Donkey Kong (Nintendo Switch)

Why isn't it okay to call this tempalte like I did when we already did it for Donkey Kong Country 1, 2 and 3? I don't understand the logic behind this... Do you like long ass names? I don't see how my proposal is less intuitive than yours, do you think people would seriously believe that the GBA game comes after the Switch game? there are more than 20 years between the two consoles. It's pretty clear which game is older and which game is newer. As for the "better readability", I mean, have you seen how long the name you are proposing is? --Conradd (talk) 21:20, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

I shouldn't explain myself because it's obvious enough why the options you proposed aren't ideal, but I guess I will.
1. The Mario vs. Donkey Kong template should relate to both the GBA and the Switch versions of the game. This is mitigated when you put "Mario vs. Donkey Kong (Nintendo Switch)" as a header for the template, implying at a glance that the template only applies to the Switch version. No, choosing the game's title itself to link to the "main article" while linking to the Switch version through the console identifier is not a solution; readers have no way to register that difference just by sight, and there's a much-higher-than-zero chance they'd expect an article for the Nintendo Switch console when they click on a link that says "Nintendo Switch", even in the context of this game.
2. Arguably even less intuitive is having the game title itself formatted in plain text and expecting readers to instantly know that they're supposed to click on one of its console identifiers for the intended game version.
Yes, I do in fact prefer expanding upon and clarifying a notion when the alternatives are worse--as in, I prefer repeating a game's title if the template ought to link to different versions of the game in its header. I don't see how one or two rows added to a short box in service of clarification is such an eyesore. Absolutely no big deal. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 08:51, October 24, 2023 (EDT)
