Looks like I was given a free Wario meant for you, but I couldn't delete it, so all I could do was just forward it via fax. Good thing faxing is still a thing nowadays!

Age template

I had an idea to update the template, also I updated on Wikipedia a bit. I believe there are more users that born in 1999 than 1989 on this wiki. Which is better, 1972 at time of 1986, or 1999 at time of 2013? Whether the status quo is better? What do you think of changing to Charles Martinet at time of SM64 release date? {{age|September 17, 1955|September 29, 1996}} Since the template is protected and I can't edit right now. Windy (talk) 13:14, May 4, 2023 (EDT)

It's just an example, so there's not really a point to updating it. Anyway, it's primarily meant for the mainspace, so it doesn't really matter what the average age of our editors are. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 14:45, May 4, 2023 (EDT)
This was considered a pointless edit. It is true that the median age has increased. Although the date was written in 2006, the ratio is very different from the teenagers of that time and the teenagers in these days. Windy (talk) 23:22, December 25, 2023 (EST)


Hey, I was just going to ignore this, but this user is making backhanded comments about me and I'm not entirely sure how to handle the situation. It started when they deleted a message off my talk page that I simply reverted as I want to respect that messages should not be removed from talk pages. I haven't been on much because of other commitments so I simply said on my user page I wasn't editing much. Now every time I made small edits such as in the gallery for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope , [[1]]they [[2]]are [[3]]using edit summaries to call me out on this, when I feel I have not done anything pernsonal to them except ask politely to not remove messages from my talk page. Thanks for your time.

Sdman213 (talk) 11:46, May 10, 2023 (EDT)

I sent them a message about it to tell them to stop, if it continues please let me or another staff member know. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 12:13, May 10, 2023 (EDT)
Will do, thank so much. Sdman213 (talk) 17:28, May 10, 2023 (EDT)

Question 2.0: Courtesy Continued

I will cease with the edit summary nonsense effective today. But can you let this user know for next time, if someone leaves a message on their talk page, not to be rude and answer them. It also provides assurance that a solution can be reached if there is a problem. I find it ironic that he will respond to other users talk pages but not me. Now that’s not courteous.😒 And I thought maybe someone with higher level experience hear this. Dolphin.pngMarino13 20:04, May 10, 2023 (EDT)

I have to be honest, I've looked into this (as have a few other admins) and I don't think Sdman has done anything wrong based on our policy. Users aren't required to respond to every message they get, and generally we'll only step in if it's impacting the quality of the wiki (i.e. a user continuing to break rules after being notified, or ignoring attempts to solve an editing dispute). I don't think that line has been crossed here. At most there's a handful of messages asking about reverted edits, but I checked up on those and they were already handled by clear edit summaries anyway. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 12:13, May 11, 2023 (EDT)


I'll prelude this by saying the MK8 one wasn't mine and I agree it shouldn't have lost information (though I want to table it as well into something that actually has the required information...and I think the current gallery images are really poor tiny in-game crops, so the icons are probably the right way to go.). Anyways, I asked around several chats on Discord (as in, off-wiki people, so potential readers rather than editors... so, our demographic) which of our takes on the Mario Golf character tables worked better for them, and I got unanimous support on that front. Just wanted to let you know. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:37, May 31, 2023 (EDT)

The reason I redid that one was because someone on Discord complained about it going off the edge of their screen, with no option to scroll. Even as I was working on it though I wondered if it really needs a table since there's so little information there, though. That and the Strikers table aren't the only instances of these revisions not playing nice on smaller screens, by the way. (Yeah, I knew the MK8 one wasn't yours. I think those images did come from the official website, but icons are probably more consistent considering that's all we have for the DLC characters.) --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 18:11, May 31, 2023 (EDT)
Hmm, so if the table could be made to have an interior scroll on smaller screens, might that solve the issue while still not being.... overly blank? I have training in web design programming, I could pull it off. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:20, May 31, 2023 (EDT)

Re: Fanon content

Hi! In addition to your position as the Fake News Director, you can also open an upcoming Mario fanon wiki called "Fake News NOW". It will be a fanon counterpart of Super Mario Wiki, just like how Ukikipedia is a Super Mario 64 counterpart of the Super Mario Wiki. For example, the name of Fake News NOW's main page when opened will say "Fake News NOW, a Super Mario fanon wiki", and the name of the page about the canon article focusing on Mario when opened will say "Mario - Fake News NOW, a Super Mario fanon wiki". You can be the webmaster of Fake News NOW and hire Super Mario Wiki users to create their Fake News NOW accounts create fanon pages. Here's the URL for Fake News NOW:

Also, here's the interwiki link to Fake News NOW:


This manual on installing MediaWiki will help you set up Fake News NOW. Also, this manual about interwiki links will help you set up the interwiki link to Fake News NOW.

Would you like to download and install MediaWiki so you can set up the Fake News NOW wiki? --GuntherBayBeee.jpgGuntherBayBeeeGravity Rush Kat.png 18:49, June 5, 2023 (EDT)

Adding guidelines for my passed proposals

Hi! Now that my proposals about adding guidelines for archived pages and clarifying how to italicize merchandise titles have both passed, could you or another administrator please add the guidelines to MarioWiki:Citations and MarioWiki:Manual of Style, respectively? Admittedly, I feel like the merchandise title proposal could use some more discussion and more research into grammar rules on my part, but that'll have to wait per rule 7 of MarioWiki:Proposals.

Done, let me know if there's anything that you think should be changed though. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 14:32, June 17, 2023 (EDT)
The updates to MarioWiki:Manual of Style look perfect, but the only further change to MarioWiki:Citations I'd suggest is adding a note about how the date and time of a Wayback Machine capture can be determined from the archived page's URL, like I explained in my proposal.

Recurring Themes Infobox

How do I make an infobox template for recurring themes? I want to include a space for an audio clip, a picture of sheet music, the original composer, the first and latest appearances, etc. ToxicOJ (talk) 12:50, July 22, 2023 (EDT)

The easiest way to do it is to copy an existing infobox and replace the fields with the ones you want. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 12:52, July 22, 2023 (EDT)
I'll do that for the time being, but I think a unique one should still be made, considering that things like Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix songs have their own unique style of infobox. ToxicOJ (talk) 00:38, July 24, 2023 (EDT)

Clarification on this proposal

Hey, so Swallow notified me about that proposal from a while back that I wasn't aware of, and I'm confused about it. You can refer to our user pages to get up to speed (most of it is on Swallow's). Fair enough, many of those were quite old and outdated, but I still think some of the articles that used to have one of those templates don't really require much discussion to enact even now: some cases are either self-evident or policy-driven (i.e.recent/common). Glancing at your edit history, I'll just pick out a few that stand out to me, in my opinion: arrow wheel, Bowser Memory ML, CLEAR Block, Little Ogre, M-Token, Papa (disambiguation), Power Sneakers, spotted platform, Switch Block (Yoshi's Island series), Yoshi Island Spirits... However, Swallow tells me that, apparently, all of the articles that used to have those templates now require having discussions (re)opened. This is especially troublesome because I already moved spotted platform and "Switch Block" earlier due to the former being superseded and the latter's lack of better source, but those articles used to have a move template, so does that mean all that work will be unnecessarily undone? I interpret the proposal as intended to be more of an immediate clean-up rather than a super-strict rule since you used phrases like "some level of discretion," and genuinely, I don't think that part of the proposal was "set in stone" - was it something that came up at a different point? EDIT: I didn't see Swallow's most recent talk page comment until after posting, so it looks like there was a misunderstanding after all. Oh well. I guess the lesser points I've made at Swallow's talk page still stand, so as the proposer, I'm curious what you think regardless. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:11, July 23, 2023 (EDT)

Yes, this is meant to be a change going forward since it's addressing more problems than just a cleanup of the categories (and besides, a cleanup is only useful if you keep it clean). The references to discretion were specifically in reference to what defines an inactive discussion.
The proposal doesn't affect any scenarios where the change is something that should just be done right away according to policy, since in that case you can probably just go ahead and make the change without needing to discuss it. It also wouldn't require any changes to be undone. It affects when those templates can be used and nothing else. Whether an old discussion needs to be reopened depends on how much engagement it got before going inactive. If it got some decent support but the change was just never made for whatever reason, you could probably just go ahead and make that change, but if it was inconclusive, better to open it up again before putting those templates back.
My view on discussion activity is that if you're suggesting a change, it's your responsibility (or supporters' responsibility) to keep that discussion active until it reaches a conclusion, and if that doesn't happen, then there's really no need to keep bloating those categories with suggestions from years back that never panned out. Keeping a discussion active is as simple as bumping it or moving on to the proposal stage anyway.
Hopefully that clears everything up, but if I missed something or anything's still unclear, let me know. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 17:14, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
Gonna put my two cents here, sometimes it's helpful to put those on there if policy dictates a move, but you don't have time to move it at the moment. The template works as a nice reminder without having to make a talk page over what should be a matter-of-policy move. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 17:17, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
Drive-by templating like that eventually leads to bloated maintenance categories (which isn't very editor friendly) and is something we've been trying to avoid recently. You should probably just wait until you have time to make the change. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 17:25, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
I mean, from my perspective - as someone who's been guilty of "drive-by templating" - it's actually been helpful on my end to keep track of things. Seeing those still up after a while aided me in gauging situations, since my theory was that the longer exposure would naturally attract the strongest voices/opinions over time, and if it turned out that it didn't, it sometimes let me know that things were in the clear to proceed whenever I got around to revisiting. I did obviously open discussions when I thought things might have more contention right off the bat, but I suppose I did admittedly treat the template as a buffer between deeper discussion and outright editing. Again, I wasn't aware of the proposal or other discussion, so it is news to me now that it was seen as a problem to be taken care of. I am sorry that a number of users on the other end (over twenty!) viewed it as an eyesore. In fairness, I'll also say that it sometimes slips my mind that the move templates don't allow you to add your reason as a parameter, unlike the rewrite templates, so I would occasionally start to write reasons within the template, only to remember afterwards in preview that it doesn't quite work like that; therefore, I would often be forced to relegate those reasons to the edit summary, where I understand things tend to get buried. Would appending a similar reason parameter to those templates instead have worked to mitigate the issue? It would have made things more in line with the first drive-by proposal. And another thing still doesn't add up to me: like I said, I believe that proposal was made after Porple hid most meta categories/templates from visibility when signed out. I thought that already served to address it? As such, I feel like a proposal/discussion about it came...maybe a little late. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:48, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
That seems reasonable, I certainly wouldn't oppose having an option to include a reason on those templates in lieu of immediately starting a discussion (though if it's something that requires a paragraph to explain, that's probably better on the talk page). As far as I'm concerned, maintenance templates/categories being hidden when logged out is a completely unrelated matter. I was more concerned with keeping the maintenance categories themselves at a reasonable size (the more pages there are, the more overwhelming it is and the less likely it is any individual one will be addressed from there) and ensuring that the reasoning behind a suggestion is easily accessible. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 20:00, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
I see. Well, I think it would be a fair compromise. If a "Discourage drive-by templating part 2.5" needs to be made for this parameter, maybe I'm not the one who should do it. Would you like to make it instead? Can you think of any other ways to improve templating before another proposal is written? LinkTheLefty (talk) 12:09, August 6, 2023 (EDT)
It probably doesn't need a proposal at all. I don't know why the addition would be controversial, and allowing the parameter to be used instead of a talk page discussion still follows the spirit of the original proposal, if not the letter (which it couldn't have since it wasn't an option at the time). I would suggest also adding a date parameter to go along with it like some of the other maintenance templates have. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 15:56, August 6, 2023 (EDT)

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Revision

Hi! I'm not the user whose edit you undid in this revision, but I wanted to follow up with it as it was a question I had already asked on the talk page and had not received a response.

Part of why I believe this would be a worthy inclusion even though we don't know what courses will be in Wave 6 yet is because we do know some of the courses that were supposed to be in Wave 6 -- Wii Maple Treeway and Wii Moonview Highway are both already indicated to have been intended for that wave in the section (or at least the code used for Moonview Highway, though it was apparently a new track), while Tour Athens Dash and Tour Vancouver Velocity implicitly are as well, as they are not listed in any of the other waves. While this information is implied by the section, it's peculiarly left out of the complete list. Since we already know that at least those courses have been changed, I see no reason why we shouldn't go ahead and have a column. It would help readers to visualize which slots in Wave 6 we know will have been replaced when the wave does roll around. 21:27, July 23, 2023 (EDT)

Ah, I see now. Admittedly, I quickly looked at the edit but didn't realize that some of the tracks in the original Wave 6 are now in other waves, so the final one will definitely be different then. In that case, I think it's fine to put back on the page, though I don't have time to figure out the proper wikicode right now. Thanks for pointing this out and clarifying. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 22:10, July 23, 2023 (EDT)
No worries! I'm not able to edit the page myself as I don't have an account, but here is the correct wikicode if you would like to copy-paste it. I went ahead and removed the placeholder column for Wave 6 (final), since we don't know any information on it yet, and I split it into two rows of two waves each to make it a bit less condensed.

How do you add stuff to Template:Button?

Hi, Waluigi Time. I hope you're doing well.

Within the past year, I have uploaded assets for the Nvidia Shield TV and iQue Player controllers with the intent of having them integrated into Template:Button, but I am not tech savvy enough to figure out how to do this. Do you know what one needs to do to add new button options? Thanks.

Issue 200 of The 'Shroom is great, btw. - Nintendo101 (talk) 13:44, December 2, 2023 (EST)

It looks like a new button can be added pretty easily by adding a single line of code. Here's the one for the A button on the Switch, for example.
|switch-a=<span title="A Button">[[File:Switch A Button.svg|{{{size|x16px}}}|link=|class=invert|A Button]]</span>
So you would replace switch-a with whatever code you want to be used to make that button appear, and then swap out the image and the span title/image caption. Hopefully that helps, but if you're having trouble with it then let me know and I can try to add it if you tell me what specific buttons you want added.
I'm glad you enjoyed the issue! --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 13:50, December 2, 2023 (EST)
This was helpful, thank you. This is probably obvious, but where would I physically write out this code? Because it does not seem to be how buttons are coded when I go to "Edit" on Template:Button, so I assume I have to be doing this on a different page. - Nintendo101 (talk) 14:06, December 2, 2023 (EST)
Make sure you're editing the whole page at once and looking at the first half of it, if you go too far you'll end up on the usage table which just shows how to use the template (although you'll want to update that as well). --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Mario Kart Tour icons

Hey, Waluigi Time. So I was told to give a pause of separating history on articles. Since you brought up the Mario Kart Tour articles being extremely large, I thought about drafting the template icons to help reduce the mess; I am working on the project here: User:Derekblue1/sandbox. What do you think? Derekblue1(talk)Daisy Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga-styled sprite 03:40, December 3, 2023 (EST)

I don't think the code itself is the issue, it's the sheer amount of images being displayed on the page. The template would reduce how many bytes the pages are, but it wouldn't do anything to solve the actual problems. What really needs to be done is replacing the images with a text list of those subjects, which would also help for readability. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 12:41, December 3, 2023 (EST)
I'm personally in support of such a template. If the Tour articles are extremely large, they just need to be split into more of them. Given all the character variations, reading stuff like Mario (Raindeer), Mario (Spaceman), Mario (Classic), in a crammed list would introduce an annoyance of its own. See like the Daily selects section for example. That's way too many gliders, characters, crammed into one wikitable. Super Game Gear (talk) 13:33, December 3, 2023 (EST)
I can agree with you there, I don't think listing everything in a single block of text is ideal. I envision using bullet point lists instead and maybe doing away with the tables entirely. The problem with just splitting pages up more is that we have to ask if they can logically be split further without inconveniencing readers. For example, one of the longest Tour-related pages is List of N64 Kalimari Desert tour appearances in Mario Kart Tour. This covers both versions of the course, so we could probably split off the 2nd version. That would cut the page down by less than half, which still leaves a very large page behind. The only logical option for splitting further is by year, but that's splitting up a pretty simple topic (the appearances of a single course in the game) across potentially five pages for each year the game was in service. (Also, for my point about readability, try picking a single kart/glider from the game and trying to find where - or if - it appears on one of these pages.) --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I don't really do friend userboxes as a matter of principle, but I'd be happy to consider you a friend! Besides, I fear no Wario. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 18:49, December 8, 2023 (EST)
A portrait of Waluigi Here's your badge. Artwork of Wario in Mario Party 10 You're still getting a Wario, for no friend userboxes. But, do not worry! He's just here for show, he decided to be merciful and only plaster his face on only ONE of your furnitures. --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 21:18, December 8, 2023 (EST)

Time sensitive issues, eh?

He'll be fine, he'll just land in the comically large pile of additional free Warios at the bottom. Have a rotten day! --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 16:50, December 15, 2023 (EST)

Please accept my apologies for my confrontational attitude yesterday. I don't think dredging up that year-old proposal was anything more than reactionary and I figured that might not have sat well with you. We can disagree, but it seems I've yet to fully learn how to temper my use of, what one could construe as, ad hominems. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 08:33, January 5, 2024 (EST)

Don't worry about it, proposals can get heated sometimes so I try not to take anything said in them too seriously outside of the discussion itself. I appreciate the apology. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 10:43, January 5, 2024 (EST)

RE:Article names

thanks for the heads up! I did try to look into it in the policies but I couldn't find a definite answer and went with what, in my mind, was the standard before - Qyzxf (talk) 20:24, January 7, 2024 (EST)

Dear Waluigi Time

Dear Waluigi Time,

My pet Conkdor keeps escaping from his cage. I actually made the cage by fusing my friends collection of metal caps together. Last time he escaped I found him at a Condart farm which weirdly enough was a glass dome. The time before that, I found him at a Construction site with a lot of Conveyor belts, and there he was looking Confused with Confetti on the floor. It feels like there is a HUGE CON being played on me! My question is: What is happening and how and why is my Conkdor escaping?

Hey, thanks for the question! You're the first user to send me one through the wiki, actually. I've already written this month's edition but I'll add this to my list of questions to answer in future issues. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad!
