Feedback for MarioWiki


Hello, fellow MarioWikians. I am getting feedback from users to help improve wiki experience and activity. Previously, I asked users on Discussions why they came to MarioWiki. Most of the users voted "to discuss and have fun", meaning the wiki attracts most users who like to discuss about Mario.

Years of experimenting success...

MarioWiki has lasted thirteen years. MarioWiki's activity is decent and easygoing, compared to other wikis that have active edits. Users like me noticed MarioWiki is not in a good state.

Portals coming soon!

Hello, MarioWikians!

Hello, MarioWikians! The previous blog was not the official blog; the majority of you seemed to fall into the bait. I apologise for the users who did not like the clickbait. Most April Fools jokes are weird today. This time, this is MY official blog. I am going to keep this blog simple.

You may be noticing that there are pages called "Portals". We are in the process of creating portals, please stay in-tune and let us jump in the blog.

What is a portal?

A portal serves as a "Home Page" for specific topics or areas. There is a range of topics on MarioWiki: Mario Kart, Mario Party, Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario.

What is the purpose?

The purpose of portal pages is to keep on track of specific articles. This means Portal:Mario & Lu…
