Featured Articles

I know this is a little early but when should we start the featured articles? MarioGalaxy {talk/contribs/Count} 21:51, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

We should start Featured Articles when we have at least 10 articles of a good-quality length with images and links etc. Jordan Hatch talk 11:32, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
I made the featured article box and added Dimentio. But I messed up the main page in the meantime. Can somebody fix that?

Main Page Image

Can we have some sort of proposal system for the main page images? Jordan Hatch talk 20:44, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Sure. Now that the previous month is over, what should we have? MarioGalaxy2433g5{Metroid/Mario/Pokemon} {talk/contribs/Logs} 22:15, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
I don't know. Perhaps we should wait until we have more images on the wiki, so we can choose some which feel more suited to the Main Page. Jordan Hatch talk 22:16, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Just in case you didn't know, I'm on the other wiki as well. So I know that. Also see the date on the previous post, that was old news. MarioGalaxy2433g5{Metroid/Mario/Pokemon} {talk/contribs/Logs} 19:05, 8 March 2008 (UTC)


Greetings! I'm from the Wikia Gaming Team, and I want to add the Mario Wiki to the spotlights running on Wikia (those little ads for other wikis that you see). We're specifically going to feature you on the Super Smash Bros. wiki because we think that a lot of people interested in SSB would also be interested in Mario. The only catch is that in order to be eligible to be featured, you have to meet our best practices. The good news is that you already meet almost all of them! The only problem is that your Main Page is still called "Main Page". To help with Google ranking, we suggest that you rename your main page to "Mario Wiki". This is pretty easy to do. You can learn about how to do this, and find more suggestions about promoting your wiki here.

Of course, you don't have to do this, but we think it's a good idea, it's pretty easy, and we'll help promote you if you do. ;)

I'll be watching. Let me know if you have any questions. --KyleH@fandom (talk) 18:42, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

I moved it. MarioGalaxy2433g5{Metroid/Mario/Pokemon} {talk/contribs/Logs} 19:39, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
Awesome! Thanks. --KyleH@fandom (talk) 19:58, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

dude, why did you copy the mariowiki? BlueYoshter

We didn't and if you were smart enough to look at the site notice, you would have said nothing. MarioGalaxy2433g5{Metroid/Mario/Pokemon} {talk/contribs/Logs} 21:05, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Copy? As in, concept? 'Cause I wouldn't say Mario's an new, original concept to base fan-made material on. Greenpickle 21:54, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Character Template

I copied the Template:Character from my wiki (mario Party Wiki) in hopes that you guys would use it to spiff up your character articles. However I seem to be only guy who does. Check Mario, Luigi, Shadow Mario, Bowser, and Peach articles. - Count Caterpie

Thanks. MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 23:27, 1 July 2008 (UTC)


Hi. My name is StarYoshi1, and I'm from the other Mario Wiki. I came across this wiki a couple of weeks ago, and I decided to join. I found that this site does not have a template for the games, while there is one for the characters. Now I'm not a total Wiki expert, and don't know how to make templates, but I thought that maybe someone could make one. Maybe it could be designed somethig like this:


Now, I do realize that this is copied from the other MarioWiki, but you can edit it anyway you like. A finished one of these looks like this:Click Here

If you want the actual code for the template, e-mail me at

Trying to help, StarYoshi1 03:32, 22 November 2008 (UTC)


I was just wondering, what exactly defines a stub? Thx,StarYoshi1 16:47, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

A stub is a small article that can have lots of info added to it. Exactly how small? There is no exact amount. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 19:10, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
I usually classify a stub as less than ten sentances.. with a few exceptions

New Template

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
I made a different temple for enemy species. So if we can use that from now on
Great work, thanks! We could do with getting some infoboxes for the games too Jordan Hatch talk 11:00, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
StarYoshi1 donated one to us.

While we're talking about this, can someone please add the Games template to the wiki? I tried it, but it didn't work, so could someone please add it? Thanks, StarYoshi1 waz here! 00:43, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Which games template? Link? Jordan Hatch talk 02:12, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

The one up there, under the "Templates?" section. StarYoshi1 waz here! 04:46, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Any ideas?

Any ideas to do, I am new to this wikia...--Shade Link 15:33, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Or can i make a page for myself now? =/

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Im sorry, but Im having trouble telling what you want? If you are looking for pages to edit, just press Random Page and see what you get.

i am talking about my own page, my user file --Shade Link

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Sure.. there's nothing limiting you from making your page.

Power-up Articles

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Why is it that we have two articles for each power up? We have an article for the Starman, and one for Rainbow Mario: The direct effect of the Starman. We have the same for several of Mario's power-ups. Why not just merge the Transformation Article, with the Power-up Article? It makes so much more sense that way. Thoughts?

Akamia – Meet Luigi
TALK – 22:24, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
You do raise a point. I, however, thought that Starman gave you "Star Mario" as opposed to the so-called "Rainbow Mario". Seeing as all three articles talk about the same thing, almost, I think that they (at least Rainbow Mario and Star Mario) should merge

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Rainbow Mario is Star Mario, there's no difference.

Akamia – Meet Luigi

Featured Article

Akamia – Meet Luigi
TALK – 23:06, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I know it isn't my place to say, but doesn't the wiki need a new Featured Article? It's been the same article for about... d'oh! I don't know how long! When will it get changed?
Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
First of all, It is your place to say. You're a member of this site just like MG and I.

2. Yes it does.. 3. We need a better criteria for FAs 4. We also need better articles >_<.

I don't mean to be rude, but I must say that Nintendopedia's Mario article is (WWAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY) better than the Mario article here at Mario Wiki. RedYoshi 01:27, 28 June 2009 (UTC)RedYoshi

So fix it. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 01:44, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
We know. Our articles were once good too, until we realized that they had been copied from the lesser Mario Wiki.

If we had members who wrote good articles who didn't copy, we'd have an awesome article

Webkinz112 – Hey there, I'm Webkinz112!
The Mario Kart Wii article is nice and long for us, why not feature that one?

Rainbow Mario

I think the Mario transformation called "Rainbow Mario" really is called Rainbow Mario because that's the name from Super Mario Galaxy. You can't argue with Nintendo, you know. And the Rainbow Mario tranformation item is really called the "Rainbow Star" because, well, that's the name from my Super Mario Galaxy trading card game. RedYoshi 01:36, 28 June 2009 (UTC)RedYoshi

Trading Card Games have a tendency to be Non Canon. - Count Caterpie 01:43, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

That's true. It depends if Nintendo made those cards. RedYoshi 02:13, 28 June 2009 (UTC)RedYoshi

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Well that might make a difference. For Example: Pokemon cards are copyright Nintendo. They are the intellectual property of Game Freak and Printed by Wizard's of the Coast.
The reason we don't have the article is because it is similar to the Starman. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 20:07, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Make a redirect, and in Star Mario put "Star Mario (Known as Rainbow Mario in Super Mario Galaxy) is ...". It is possible, yes?


Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Thanks to Richard1990, we have been advertising that we know a lot about Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii. and Mario Kart Wii (see the site title). As Mario Wiki should not be one to disappoint, I think we should do our best to improve those articles and find out as much as we can about the new games.

2 Things

Hello Mario Wiki!, I have got 1 question and 1 Idea. Question First, How many edits does it take to be a sysop or rollbacker? Idea Now, can we have a user of the month competition? From History99 :)

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
1. There is no specific number that will make somebody a sysop/b'crat/rollback user. If we did that, people would just make hundreds of small minor punctuation edits and get promoted without putting in actual effort.

2. I don't think that would be a good idea. In part because MarioGalaxy, Launcher, I, and other top contributers would continue to win it over and over again. What I mean is that those who edit, edit a lot. Also, we have more important things, like improving our wiki, than an unimportant contest.

Just an idea.....

16:32, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

THE TROLL Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales Thetalktemplate TTT

I'm going to put in a suggestion. I say that we have the community vote on each other. For starters, we need to have a limit, like here at least one week and fifty constructive, non-minor mainspace edits, i.e. those that were not reverted, and need to have a talkbubble. Those that satisfy those conditions can vote. We should do one each month. Some rules I would implement would be no one user can become featured user of the month if they have done so in the same year.

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
HAHAHAHA.. I thought you were talking about making new sysops.. Heh...
So, I don't get to vote. Whatever you say... The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 23:21, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

You can vote.. nobody said you couldn't. --- Count Caterpie 00:41, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

RedYoshi – “It's me again… RedYoshi!”
Errrmm... I don't really like Hisrory99's idea. (But I do, however, sort of like Launchballer's idea.)It'll just make users think that they can be a sysop after they create a certain amount of articles. And not just any

kind of an article, stub articles. I'll use Bob-omb for an example, even though there already is a page for it: "A Bob-omb is a bomb that blows up and has legs to walk on." (Just an example of a bad article! The real one is better than this example.) OF COURSE BOB-OMBS BLOW UP! And OF COURSE THEY CAN WALK! Honestly, what kind of "responsible" user would make an article like that? Just a thought.

I suppose, if we were going to be incredibly puritanical about the definition, I wouldn't be allowed to, because I use a burger (three layers or more)
So that is what a burger is. I was questioning your sanity when I read, "Are burgers allowed here?" on Captain Vas's talk page on the Pokemon Wikia. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 14:07, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

So did a lot of other people when I said "I've updated my burger". They thought I was cooking. Anyway, are they?
I don't know. Since there is no specific rule prohibiting it, I guess they are. (Though they and talk bubbles increase load time) The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 22:45, October 19, 2009 (UTC)

The appropriate answer? So fix it.

RedYoshi – “It's me again… RedYoshi!”
I'm not a sysop. It was just a suggestion.
He said, SOFIXIT which means, SOFIXIT. (Don't complain when anyone can edit articles) The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 23:54, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

RedYoshi – “It's me again… RedYoshi!”
Sorry. I only meant to inspire other users to help out more (like I kind of am) and to help make pages a little bit better. I'm not complaining. And of course I know what SOFIXIT means. It means so fix it. Again, I'm sorry.

I'm not sure what you meant by 'not being a sysop'. What does that have to do with not editing? --- Count Caterpie 17:41, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

RedYoshi – “It's me again… RedYoshi!”
Yeah, you're right. I guess I thought that sysops could only do what Launchballer suggested. Weird.

Random Image

I've used this feature an a number of wiki's and think its worthwhile, I'll set up the template, but you'll have to implement it, if you agree, and since there is a blank spot underneath the news and clean up of the month.

Here is the template: Template:Random Image

Images would have to be set up like With a link to the page it relates to. The link will show up as the caption in the thumbnail.

BTW.. on my system the news column bleeds on top of the Featured article, I suggest changing the width to 90%, under:
<!-------------------Table-----------------> {| style="width:100%; border:1px solid #047190; background-color:#FFF; margin-top:2px; padding:5px;"

Excruciatingly bad idea. If someone's uploaded an inappropriate picture, and that shows up, we're screwed.

Are you implying that we sysops don't do our job of removing inappropriate content?

In case one gets uploaded BEFORE we delete it.

Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Then let's hope that will not happen.
IMO: It isn't really necessary. As for the news column, if we fix it for you, we will probably break it for someone else. That is how things work. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 01:07, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Usually, the main page is not protected because it's a community wiki. That empty space is wasted space.

Cleanup of the Month

StarYoshi1 – Yoshi! The greatest character of all!
I've noticed that the Cleanup of the Month is irrelevant, because it hasn't been updated in ages, and the notice about the uncategorized pages is no longer needed, because there are no uncategorized pages (as of 6/26/2010).

SuperAlpaca – Half of the modern drugs could well be thrown out the window, except that the birds might eat them.

The pages are only categorized as stubs... It is un-categorized, but doesn't show up.
Count Caterpie – “Master of dimentions… Pleaser of Crowds… I… am… Count Caterpie!”
Actually, its very relevant. Mario Kart articles still suck (though thanks to RainbowRoad, they are getting better) and people are still making uncategorized pages.
StarYoshi1 – Yoshi! The greatest character of all!
OK, true. But if it's Cleanup of the Month, shouldn't it be updated monthly?

  • A period should be placed at the end of the paragraph at the top.
  • The Glitz Pit fight hasn't been updated on the front page. There was a fight after the one on the page too!
  • This next one's a little different though. A new featured Screenshot or Article should be featured sooner or later. --Wattz2000 20:58, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

I'd just as soon get rid of that template. I never liked the idea of that, I don't think that it helps draw in anyone anyway, especially not at the very bottom of the page.

Newly acquired White Space

Hrmm, it now seems we have a small problem. With the deletion of the featured screenshot, we now have white space in it's place. One easy solution I see, is to just move one of the items from the thin column over and slightly extend it, but that's me. — Wattz2000 01:46, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

One more thing I wanted to talk about. MarioWiki has IRC, but Wikia has now introduced a new chat feature that many wikis are using, such as SNN. I think we should turn it on. It'd be easier than using the IRC. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. SportySmallRightAnimation(Talk)(Recent finds and updates.) 03:08, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Since January 16, 2009. That is a problem. Anyway, we need better articles, we really do. I've been looking through the pages and haven't come across an excellent candidate, though. — Wattz2000 21:21, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
There was one article that I was working on, I think it needs a bit more pizzazz though. – zzi 21:23, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Ok. As long as we change the Featured Article. January 16, 2009?? Holy crap we've got a problem here. --Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. SportySmallRightAnimation(Talk)(Recent finds and updates.) 21:25, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

I believe Jazzi and I tried to formulate a nomination system, but then something happened. I don't recall what. Anyway, in the meantime if you see a quality article. Let us know on the talk page and we can discuss it. - The Count 22:31, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
I fell off the face of the wiki, pretty much. I'm going to put Marilyn up, and then we can do the nomination system after that. – zzi 22:37, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

A contest idea

Lala Dah Rah... ♫♪
Shouldn't be cool if we make a contest for the Shy Guy's real face? I mean:

To give a picture of a Shy Guy on the main page and people to be able to download it. Then using an image editor they will need to draw how they imagine the Shy Guy's real face and simply upload the image.

Rainbowroad6w – Your mom.

Eh, maybe. I donno. This is something you should talk to either Jäzzi or Count Caterpie about. I think this talk page needs to be archived.

Why was biddybud deleted?

Why was the biddybud page deleted? Ghost of (talk) 00:16, September 27, 2012 (UTC)ghost of (talk)

Hey, I'm Rainbowroad6w, head admin, and I deleted the page, and let me explain why. Also, I may sound a little rude or harmful, but I really don't want to scare you off. We'd love your help. :)

First of all, the quality of the page was bad. I just won't tolerate bad quality, and I had no knowledge of this article and it looked pointless, especially since there wasn't much information to start with. Things that are required for a page are:

  • Bold text for the article title (ex. the Mario page: "Mario is a the main...")
  • Italics on game title or series (ex. Mario Kart)
  • Links
  • Categories
  • Correct grammar and spelling
  • Normally I like to have a picture in there, if possible

Again, don't mean to scare you off or make you mad, but these are just things required for a good article. I was able to fix up a few of your other edits, but that page specifically just wasn't working out at all, so I just deleted it.

--Rainbowroad6w, the researcher. (Talk)(Recent finds and updates.) 06:00, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

I just saw a broken link on a random page so I just decided to make it not broken.

There is already another mario wiki?

You guys do realise there is already a mario wiki not hosted by Wikia with a lot more pages than this one, right? I just don't see the point of building this one up when there is already a larger, non-wikia mario wiki. Lachlan5963.png 16:30, December 15, 2012 (UTC)


Wait a minute, hold everything for just 1 second everybody. Is it just me or do all these Mario series games somehow seem to be a little bit Japanese? No offense, but during the credits of the games (that I played), some of the producers names seem to sound a bit Japanese. E.g Shigeru Miyamoto. And the character Yoshi sounds a little bit Japanese to.Bettydude100 (talk) 22:55, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

How about a box that has info of a character or game or item that explains of why a user likes that or not! How does this sound to you?
Can you give me a example? :)

Great! I will make more Userboxes for users to use on their user pages! This would mean new users, or users that has been on the Wiki for a long time! I'm sure they will like these a lot!

By the way, I think I will create a Userbox page right now so you can find the code to use the Userboxes. This page will show you how to use these on your page! Click here to view open the page! It will not be done until I finish creating the Userboxes page, though.

Two lost Mario Bros films..

I wanted to ask if it we should include (On the page that it seems to belong on) two lost movies that Nintendo owns the right too, but won't lease. The films were called "Super Hornio Bros. 1" and "Super Hornio Bros. 2". Yeeaahhh...Thats why I'm asking. Sorry if I got you all excited ._.

Spoilers template

Spoilers template

Hey guys. I was just wondering if just as a suggestion, instead of using the "spoilers begin here" and "spoilers end here" templates on an article that contains spoilers, we could put a new template at the top of the page that states, "This article contains spoilers. Read at your own risk"?

There is something I would like to edit in the mario wiki.Donkey kongs motivation in the arcade games.I have an official guide to mario that stated that donkey kongs motivation was not by donkey kong circus(that means the game is non canon)It was because of his instinct of being a wild animal.So can I have permission to edit that part?

can I have permission to edit the mario page.

You could've just asked either me or the other admins to unlock it. Though, I do must ask what are you going to edit on that page. Your last edits were mainly spamming those images onto pages.
