Okay, so I put in a few different quotes on my page but the only quote that ever shows up for me is the Rick Astley one. Is this the case for everyone or is it just me? Did I do something wrong? If so, please tell me what it is. ChuckNorris24.png 20:33, 31 August 2012 (EDT)

The option/choice structure tries to avoid recalculating itself, so even hard refreshes might not result in change. It should be different for infrequent visits and different people though. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Inconceivable 20:43, 31 August 2012 (EDT)


If you accept, go on IRC. Scr7Wolfsig.png 09:15, 29 July 2013 (EDT)

My apologies, but, my Wii is not currently hooked up to the internet. However, I really want to fight you. I'll try to get it hooked up this week and when it is ready, I'll tell you. Does that sound OK? ChuckNorris24.png 10:03, 29 July 2013 (EDT)
Yeah ok. Scr7Wolfsig.png 10:55, 29 July 2013 (EDT)
Just so you know, I won't be able to brawl right now. You will have to wait a week if you want to fight me. Scr7Wolfsig.png 14:47, 14 August 2013 (EDT)
OK. ChuckNorris24.png 14:49, 14 August 2013 (EDT)

Would you like to brawl now? I have time. Scr7Scr7 sig.png(talk · contribs) 16:26, 6 September 2013 (EDT)

Sure. I'll hop on the IRC. ChuckNorris24.png 16:27, 6 September 2013 (EDT)

Now hang on a moment[edit]

The {{Infobox Character General}} template is supposed to be used only for pages about playable characters that describe their non-Smash Bros. biography. You shouldn't be using it to replace things like {{AssistTrophy}}. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Incomprehensible 17:07, 15 August 2013 (EDT)

Toad has that template for some reason. I probably should have asked before I started. I just think that the assist trophy template looks very tacky. ChuckNorris24.png 17:10, 15 August 2013 (EDT)
No dude, you can't just say "Toomai didn't respond" Finish the discussion before changing it back. DoctorPain99 15:58, 16 August 2013 (EDT)
How does the AT template look "tacky", and how does converting to a less specific template with more irrelevant boxes help? Toomai Glittershine ??? The Cloronic 16:59, 16 August 2013 (EDT)
The ICG template is more complete and it is much more specific than the AT template. The AT template has barely any information and it just looks unprofessional. And if the boxes are "irrelevant", why do playable characters get them? I think they are nice little bits of information. ChuckNorris24.png 09:55, 17 August 2013 (EDT)
General character pages are about the character and only the character, so physical and biographical information is okay; such would be irrelevant on pages about the same characters in the Smash Bros. games (compare Mario with Mario (SSBB)). Assist Trophy pages are primarily about the AT's gameplay effect and secondarily about them as a character, so in my opinion adding physical/bigraphical stuff in their infobox is unnecessary and cluttery.
Regardless of this, Assist Trophies should use their own infobox, as they're a distinct gameplay element. If you want to add physical/biographical stuff to that infobox, argue for it on that template's talk page. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Undirigible 11:03, 17 August 2013 (EDT)


Just a friendly reminder, only use the rollback feature to revert vandalism. Not to revert mistakened edits. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) 21:31, 14 January 2014 (EST)

Oh, okay. Thanks for letting me know. ChuckNorris24.png 15:55, 17 January 2014 (EST)

About this[edit]

Any single flag can be used by setting "flag=Stuff". Japan is only in the code as a default. Toomai Glittershine ??? El Pollo 17:51, 20 May 2014 (EDT)

Stage "locations"[edit]

Are you clear on the fact that for Brawl's stages, we're intending to use the game title that's pictured above the stage name on the stage select screen? There are some times where it's not what you changed it to, such as New Pork City being listed in Brawl as from "EarthBound" in the NA release (as opposed to the more accurate "Mother 3"). Could you please check your recent edits to this effect and make sure they match the stage select screen properly? Thanks. Miles (talk) 22:50, 6 June 2014 (EDT)

Ah, I see. I'll do that right now. Sorry for the problem. ChuckNorris24.png 11:28, 9 June 2014 (EDT)

Image quality[edit]

If you're concerned about the images you find being in .jpg, you could save the picture to your pc as .png to try to salvage whatever quality is left, and prevent it from looking worse when uploading it to the Wiki as .jpg again. That's what I usually do. Unknown the Hedgehog 15:04, 25 June 2014 (EDT)

Thanks for the info. I'll try to do that after I finish checking the other Assist Trophy pages. ChuckNorris24.png 15:10, 25 June 2014 (EDT)
No problem. It does take a little longer, but I believe it's worth it in the end. Unknown the Hedgehog 15:16, 25 June 2014 (EDT)

Just curious[edit]

"If he wants it as a personal image, let him have it"

I'm sorry, but how am I supposed to know? Just curious, especially since it was uploaded at around the same time that the user made some bad faith edits. Berrenta (talk) 20:24, 4 September 2014 (EDT)

For now, I'll go ahead and leave that image alone until you respond. I'll still keep an eye on it, though, to make sure it's not improperly used. Berrenta (talk) 21:21, 4 September 2014 (EDT)
Most of the time if a user uploads a non-Smash related image, it is for their own personal use. Also, GrayGray's edits were only recently bad. The other half of his edits were, oddly enough, very useful. I'm not sure how the image could be "improperly used", but it should be fine. I see no reason to delete it. ChuckNorris24.png 21:27, 4 September 2014 (EDT)
Yeah, it's pretty rare for a good-faith user to suddenly become a bad-faith one in a blink of an eye. Will go ahead and leave it as is, then, as I mentioned. Berrenta (talk) 21:37, 4 September 2014 (EDT)
It could've been the user was hacked. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 22:47, 4 September 2014 (EDT)
Yeah, that's a possibility. If so, hopefully the real user can reclaim his account. We may need to ask a sysop to determine that. Berrenta (talk) 22:55, 4 September 2014 (EDT)


The image "MiiFighterIcon(SSB4-U).png" is going to be deleted. Please replace it with the newer variants beforehand, or I'll do it myself by simply removing it. XL 11:56, 23 November 2014 (EST)

About Your Recent Edits[edit]

I'm about to undo all of your edits relating to the "most recent appearance" for the Mario characters, all of which have the same reason.

Pulling up NSMB2's DLC shows nothing about a 2014 DLC release, nor does it show an "out of date" notification implying that there is something that isn't on the page that needs to be. I figured it would be more appropriate to tell you here than have to say it over and over again. Good day. AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 17:31, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Nintendo released a special edition NSMB2 3DS XL on Black Friday, which contained a special edition of NSMB2 with all the DLC pre-installed. It was called New Super Mario Bros. 2: Gold Edition. Do some research for yourself before you start mindlessly reverting. ChuckNorris24.png  17:35, 2 February 2015 (EST)
  1. Even so, Treasure Tracker was released after Black Friday.
  2. Regardless, all the DLC was released in 2012, not 2014.
Also, the original Mario Bros. arcade game came out in 1983, not the G&W game.
I would not like to have an edit war over this (because this rule exists). AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 17:38, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Clarification: Releases of games to retail or the eShop (barring Virtual Console) count as "releases". That's it. Unless there was anything "new" about the NSMB2 with DLC that was pre-installed, it's not a new release. Miles (talk) 17:41, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Treasure Tracker came out on November 13. And, oddly enough, the Mario Bros. for Game & Watch came out a few months before the arcade version did.
Also, Miles, NSMB2:GE is a deluxe version of the game (Sorta like those GOTY-edition games). There's no reason it wouldn't count as a new game. [1] ChuckNorris24.png  17:52, 2 February 2015 (EST)
Is there anything actually "new" about that version of NSMB2 that distinguishes it from the game with the DLC bought manually? Miles (talk) 18:04, 2 February 2015 (EST)
Does the DLC we're talking about here introduce the characters in question to the game, or were they in the game already? Toomai Glittershine ??? The Bold 18:06, 2 February 2015 (EST)
It has a different title and title screen, slighly changed menus, and no pop-ups informing you about DLC. Like I said, it's a deluxe version of a game. None the less, it should still count as a new game. Also, Toomai, I think you're slightly missing the point. NSMB2: GE is an updated version of the game, the DLC isn't really what matters here. ChuckNorris24.png  18:20, 2 February 2015 (EST)
The Super Mario Wiki mentions this version only as a throwaway sentence on the main game's page. I have a hard time believing we should give it any more prominence than that. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Dispenser 18:26, 2 February 2015 (EST)
Since when did Mario Wiki become the end-all source of truth? Yes, NSMB2: GE is game that few people have heard of, but it still exists. With a release date of November 28, 2014, it is the Mario series' newest game. And if your only reason to exclude it is because Mario Wiki barely mentioned it, that's a rather poor excuse. ChuckNorris24.png  18:40, 2 February 2015 (EST)
My point is that, if the changes to the game are so minimal (with literally no changes to the game itself, only its interface) that the largest wiki of the series does not care, why should we care? Toomai Glittershine ??? Da Bess 18:46, 2 February 2015 (EST)
Because we want the "Most Recent Appearance" section to actually be accurate? Yes, Mario Wiki doesn't care about it, but it still exists. I honestly don't see why you're against listing it. ChuckNorris24.png  19:05, 2 February 2015 (EST)
I'm against it because it is not a new game. The implication has always been that remakes (like OoT3D) count while re-releases (like anything on the Virtual Console) don't. This case is a re-release with trivial cosmetic changes. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Free 19:13, 2 February 2015 (EST)
Except this doesn't fall under either of those situations. This is a special edition of a previously released game. It is a new game, at least by the most common defintion. ChuckNorris24.png  19:28, 2 February 2015 (EST)

*resets indent* I don't care what edition it is. If there's no additional stuff added to it, then it's still not a new game. Take OoT3D as an example. It added multiple new things, such as the Master Quest mode. Therefore, it counts as a new game as opposed to something else. SM64DS is another example. It added new features. MM3D, WWHD, the Hoenn remakes, all of those contain new features. AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 19:33, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Whatever, I don't even care at this point. Have it your way. The wiki will be innacurate for a month or so, but whatever. ChuckNorris24.png  20:01, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Signature maker[edit]

Who makes the signatures around here? I forgot who. SonicHeadBlackSSB4-3.pngSpeed48 14:06, 20 February 2015 (EST)

I know back in the day ToastUltimatum sometimes made signatures for users, but I'm not sure if he still does. You'd have to ask him. ChuckNorris24.png  18:48, 1 March 2015 (EST)

Official probation warning[edit]

Policy.png Reminder: Over-editing of the user- and forum-spaces may result in your probation. Consider using the preview button to prevent editing these pages multiple times in a row.

So you have been making pretty much exclusive edits to your userspace and forum-space lately. As we are in yellow, we would prefer it if you cut down on this and contributed to our mainspace a bit more instead. Thank you for your understanding. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:28, 30 January 2016 (EST)

Eh, I knew this would happen sooner or later. I'll try to cut down on my userspace edits. Sorry, I never intended to be detrimental to the Wiki, and I'll make sure I help out the mainspace more than I have been recently. ChuckNorris24.png  21:33, 30 January 2016 (EST)
It's cool, it happens. Serpent SKSig.png King 22:06, 30 January 2016 (EST)

Please revert only one.[edit]

Policy.png Reminder: There is a policy in place that prohibits multiple reversions of the same edit. Please refrain from reverting an edit that has already been undone. Instead, bring the subject up on the article's associated talk page.

On the Soild Snake page, you should have should it to the talk page. Penro, the PenroDarkPitHead.pngand PenroZSSHead.png main. 21:55, 30 January 2016 (EST)

Sorry. Won't happen again. I just thought that you were reasonable enough to understand what I was saying. ChuckNorris24.png  22:02, 30 January 2016 (EST)
I just noticed that you weren't that user. Sorry. ChuckNorris24.png  22:03, 30 January 2016 (EST)
It's ok. this guy is who you're looking for. Penro, the PenroDarkPitHead.pngand PenroZSSHead.png main. 22:08, 30 January 2016 (EST)
