Hello, any WikiLove Heart icon.svg messages will be moved to my profile. Just remember that.
Hi! Welcome to my talk page. Any questions about me, what I'm up to, and what I'm doing wrong will be posted here(cut me some slack, we all make mistakes). You can ask me questions here too! I'm up to conversation.
This supposedly helps my talk page load faster.

Question from Quinlanwconley (07:58, 16 August 2021)[edit]

How do I post a picture on Wikipedia --Quinlanwconley (talk) 07:59, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Quinlanwconley, hello! For newcomers, we have an image uploading process that new users can follow. In fact, it's so easy to use that I still use it. On the top left-hand side of your screen, you should see an Upload File link. If it isn't there, you can use this link instead. Bear in mind if you use this, you need to be careful that you give the right credit to the works where credit is due. Panini!🥪 12:56, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello! Welcome to Wikipedia. Panini!🥪 15:33, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[]


Thank you very much for the barnstar and for your kind words.

Yes, I just finished the translation of the article into Spanish language, that's why I found those little mistakes during the process.--Furado (talk) 08:30, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Furado, Sounds good, and thanks for your work on the Spanish Wikipedia! Panini!🥪 11:18, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Rectifying my mistake (Barnstar)[edit]

I realise that I never properly thanked you for your help on helping make Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash become a GA Article back in February. It is my apologies that I didn't thank you sooner. Hopefully we can work together more in the future. CaptainGalaxy 15:04, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[]
No worries whatsoever! If you ever have any more GAs I'll be willing to review them. Panini!🥪 15:24, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Question from Geovanny Alves (01:12, 20 August 2021)[edit]

hi, how are you? how can I create an article for Brother that soccer player --Geovanny Alves (talk) 01:12, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Geovanny Alves Hey, I'm doing great! I've got a good sleep schedule going right now which is a rare occasion for me.

For creating articles, please view Help:Your first article. It should give you basic instructions for the article creation process. Creating articles is one of the most difficult tasks here according to some, so understanding the site's ropes and rules is recommended before diving into large-scale projects. I have this question answered in full User:Panini!/Teahouse Q&A#Q: How do I create an article/page?, so you can check that out too. Panini!🥪 09:51, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Star Control 3[edit]

Hi! I imagine you're busy enough with all sorts of other things. I took your suggestions and responded at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Star Control 3/archive1. Check back in whenever you have time. Shooterwalker (talk) 17:08, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Shooterwalker, this weekend I had church stuff and other IRL hobbies, I've been busy this weekend. When you got to me, I was just done with morning and was reading it while I was walking to my Chromebook to do some on-wiki stuff, ironically. I'll be over there now. Panini!🥪 18:57, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[]
Wasn't sure if my response might miss your watchlist, so I thought I'd message here too. I hope I'm not being a pest, and the review is greatly appreciated. Happy to polish this off. Shooterwalker (talk) 04:33, 24 August 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Thanks again. I was eager to get that FA done, and I appreciate your help getting it wrapped up in time for the anniversary. If you need another FA review or similar, just ping me on my talk page. Happy to reciprocate. Shooterwalker (talk) 03:17, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[]
    Shooterwalker, Sounds good. I might sit down and bring Super Mario Odyssey to GA. Maybe you could review that if it comes around? Panini!🥪 13:23, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[]
    Feel free to ping me if and when you do. Shooterwalker (talk) 15:09, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[]

WikiCup 2021 September newsletter[edit]

The fourth round of the competition has finished with over 500 points being required to qualify for the final round. It was a hotly competitive round with two contestants, Botswana The Rambling Man and New York (state) Epicgenius, each scoring over 3000 points, and six contestants scoring over 1000. All but one of the finalists achieved one or more FAs during the round, the exception being Republic of Venice Bloom6132 who demonstrated that 61 "in the news" items produces an impressive number of points. Other contestants who made it to the final are Standard of Oliver Cromwell (1653–1659).svg Gog the Mild, England Lee Vilenski, Zulu (International Code of Signals) BennyOnTheLoose, Rwanda Amakuru and Bennington Flag.svg Hog Farm. However, all their points are now swept away and everyone starts afresh in the final round.

Round 4 saw the achievement of 18 featured articles and 157 good articles. George Floyd mural Bilorv scored for a 25-article good topic on Black Mirror but narrowly missed out on qualifying for the final round. There was enthusiasm for FARs, with 89 being performed, and there were 63 GARs and around 100 DYKs during the round. As we start round 5, we say goodbye to the eight competitors who didn't quite make it to the final round; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia, and we hope you will join us again next year. For other contestants, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them.

If you are concerned that your nomination, whether it be for a good article, a featured process, or anything else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email.

A barnstar for you![edit]

SpecialBarnstar.png The Special Barnstar
I've been meaning to give you a barnstar for a long, long time, but I just couldn't find one suitable. Thank you for answering all of my questions and for being a close WikiFriend (is that a thing?). Whenever I come across a problem or question, I come to you first, and the Teahouse second. Thank you for striving to keep Wikipedia amazing. Macadamia of the LeafWings | HEAR ME ROAR!! | Contribs | My Guestbook📖 18:32, 3 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you so much! I'm always here to help a person who's in need. I also found the term Wikifriend in Wikipedia:Why you should be nice to people who vandalize so somebody probably uses it casually. Panini!🥪 03:24, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[]

By the way, I've been meaning to ask, are you an admin/sysop? Macadamia of the LeafWings | HEAR ME ROAR!! | Contribs | My Guestbook📖 22:18, 10 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Macadamia of the LeafWings, Nah, and honestly I don't wish to be one. Well, that is at the moment... Panini!🥪 01:02, 11 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Question from Kfollettva (20:51, 15 September 2021)[edit]

HI! Thank you for being a mentor! In mid-August, I created a page for the author Caren J. Werlinger. I totally understand that it will take up to a couple of months for the page to work it's way through the approval process. My question: I want to make sure I did everything correctly - I clicked on the "publish" button . . . . . was I supposed to get any kind of "receipt" or other acknowledgment that the page was "received" and is under review? Will the page just "appear" one day? Thank you!  : ) --Kfollettva (talk) 20:51, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Kfollettva, Hello! A step here that's missing (and also, from what I remember, never explained) is submitting the draft for review. I did this step for you, but for future reference, insert the template {{subst:submit}} at the top of the page.
However, it appears that this article does not reference WP:Reliable sources. I'm assuming this content came from a site or similar, so the references used should be implemented. If you need help with this process, Wikipedia:Citing sources is an overview guide on how to add them. If this page becomes overwhelming at times, I was the exact same way when I was new, so please do not be afraid to return here and ask questions.
I also made some edits to your article to keep it in line with the WP:Manual of Style. Happy editing! Panini!🥪 22:38, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[]


Yamla? It happened again...

Ferret just blocked a user (User talk:Chunkybeaneater3) that vandalized Paper Mario: The Origami King. When I went to jokingly reply, "Wow, that was fast", I got another IP Block. Big sigh. Could you do that cool magic thing administrators do and WP:IPBE again? Panini!🥪 14:20, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Granted, for three months. --Yamla (talk) 15:05, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Could use your insight on the talk page regarding The Last of Us Part II[edit]

Hey man so we're having a discussion on the talk page for The Last of Us Part II regarding whether or not the narrative/transgender character was polarizing among critics and if we should remove it. I saw you chime in on the "Universal acclaim" descriptor thing for The Last of Us Part II's reception, maybe you could chime in here as well. TheMassEffector (talk) 01:23, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

random shtick[edit]

Sorry for the late response, I took a one-day hiatus because my lawnmower wasn't working and I needed time to calm down my frustrations with the universe. busted out laughing at that. quite relatable (although it'd be my computer programs, rather than my lawn mower). theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (they/them) 08:39, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Theleekycauldron, glad you enjoyed it. It's my goal to get some chuckles out of the serious community known as Wikipedia; I do improv as one of my free-time hobbies, so I know I'm not doing too bad when people go "sandwich man funny." Panini!🥪 23:45, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
some laughs are definitely needed around here once in a while, i do my best also :) and damn improv is awesome, go you theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (they/them) 01:04, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]

For explaining to me how on earth I start Draft:Splatoon 3. I'm.. still a tad lost as to what info to start with but you've helped me get there. ― Blaze The WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 01:30, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[]
No problem. I'll keep an eye on it and do some work if needed. Panini!🥪 01:38, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[]

About the draft[edit]

Hey! So I remember that you said I should skip the AFC review and move my article straight to mainspace. However I'm so new to making an article that I decided to submit it for review because I was afraid if I moved it to main space, it wouldn't be suited for mainspace without me realizing and be speedied because of some reason. However seeing the review time is around 6 weeks (and due to me being impatient) I'm wondering if it would still be appropriate if I moved my article to mainspace. Please let me know! ― Blaze The WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 16:29, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]

C&P move[edit]

Please don't do C&P moves like this. An admin is handling a proper histmerge, but doing it *after* a C&P has already happened makes it much more difficult. -- ferret (talk) 21:19, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Blaze, don't look! I promise I know what I'm doing. Thanks for reaching out Ferret. If I recall correctly Paper Mario did have some specific merge thing like this, but I was in a rush and thought I was doing it correctly. Do I have to go to Wikipedia:Requested moves for specific moves like this? Panini!🥪
It's already been cleaned up. -- ferret (talk) 21:25, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Ferret, I saw, gave a barnstar to GN for their troubles. I'm curious to know for future reference, because if I'm writing an article it normally involves replacing a redirect (Draft:Mario & Luigi for example). Panini!🥪 21:30, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Thank you so much for working with me to make Splatoon 3 into a full article. Honestly, I probably would've either just given up or had the draft deleted because it was stale by 6 months and I couldn't figure out how to start if you hadn't helped. ― Blaze The WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 18:35, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Of course, no problem! Due to the article being a redirect, I couldn't simply move the page into it so I had to do some extra steps. If a redirect doesn't exist it should be easier. Also, the six-month thing is a maximum. and bias normally helps speed things along. AFC can be helpful for newcomers, too! Panini!🥪 21:11, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@Panini!: you could've listed the redirect under G6 and then moved it. ― Blaze The WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 21:14, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Ah, you're right! Didn't know about that one. Panini!🥪 21:17, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[]


Hey Panini, I'm looking at your decent cleanups on Mario. It inspired me to also work on Yoshi and Bowser, but it seems like Princess Peach has no character development at all and I have no idea how to expand that section other than the other sections. I thought about asking if you have any ideas. If you're busy, feel free to ignore this message. Thanks for the editing pattern thou! GeeJay24 (talk) 22:14, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[]

I have some plans with friends tonight so I'll check it out for you tomorrow. See you then! Panini!🥪 22:19, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@GeeJay24: I have a few ideas. Originally Princess Peach was basically just a side character and the damsel in distress. However since then she's evolved to play many different roles in all the Mario games (Even having her own game at one point). ― Blaze The WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 23:07, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Blaze The Wolf and Panini. Can you both verify if my cleanups on the Bowser (character) appearance section are okay if you're not too busy? Each appearance of the character is summarized, reworded, all cited with sources and aren't copy pasted. Because there's one man who wants to get rid of everything. [1]. GeeJay24 (talk) 09:36, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[]
GeeJay24, don't take this revert personally, Smuckola can be very direct and sometimes passive-aggressive in their edit summaries. There is a couple of things to improve upon in these edits of yours:
  • Try to avoid the use of the Mario wiki and other wikis (such as IGN's), due to their standards being very different from ours. The Mario wiki, for example, describes all the in-universe content as if the reader already knows everything about the series ("Oh yeah, I already know who the Origami Craftsman is, no need to explain him in any more detail). Wikipedia describes things as if the player doesn't know what a Toad is, but knows what Nintendo is and how video games work and stuff like that ("A 15-year-old that doesn't know anything about the game, but is knowledgeable about everything around it.") It sounds silly, but people look to Wikipedia to explain things, which is something wikis don't really offer, so we try not to depend on them.
  • Second is source choice. Wikipedia relies best on reliable, third-party sourcese to help best show high quality and notability. In this case, we only result in using game manuals when we absolutely have to. Other sources can be unrelated to the subject material but can be low-quality, which is why us gamers made WP:VG/RS, a handy dandy list of sources that are the best to use for references here. Stuff like GameSpot and IGN are good, but blog sites like GamePro and TheGamer not as much so.
  • To also best create high-quality content, list-like content, such as naming every appearance of a character and what they did that game, is frowned upon by a lot of people here. I'll use my work on Mario as an example, but even some still thought even what I did was too much; in the "Appearances and evolution" section, I explained Mario's general motive in the first paragraph of "2D games". Basically, go from left to right, save-a the preencess, so long gay Bowser". Then, every new title I list after that, I only explained what it did different from the game before. 2 had multiplayer and height differences, 3 had new powerups, World had Yoshi, and all the New titles had revamped graphics. I also explained new development content of why these changes were put in place; 2 was a reskin of Doki Doki Panic, 3 wanted to expiriment with character changes, World had Yoshi because Miyamoto likes Dinosaurs, and the New games exist due to the hiatus of the 3D ones. In the case with Bowser, I would give a brief overview of Bowser's underlying intentions (kidnap princess, rule Mushroom Kingdom"), and explain what new things Bowser as well as the developers brought to the table for every iteration of his appearance. I also rarely explain the plot of each game, something Mario Wiki does often and shouldn't be relied upon.

Hope this little guide helps! People can be frusturating, so I like to make like a donut and work around them. Taking their comments into note, of course. Please let me know if you have any comments about this process. Panini!🥪 12:41, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[]

I also see you're being discussed for "intolerable behavior". It seems to be a misunderstanding, so I'm talking with them to get things properly sorted out. Just keep in mind that reverting edits is seen as not okay, and discussing with the user in question is a much better approach than discussing via edit summaries. See Wikipedia:Edit warring for more details. Panini!🥪 13:40, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[]
I want to correct this and say that reverting edits is seen as okay, as long as it's done appropriately. If you make an edit and get reverted, the one thing you should NOT do is revert again. You should start a discussion on the talk page to see if you can reach an agreement or possibly a better alternative. See WP:BRD for more info on this process which can prevent edit warring. Reverting edits is fine if you're undoing an edit you might disagree with or you're undoing vandalism/unconstructive edits. If that edit is redone then follow the BRD process I described above. ― Blaze The WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 14:41, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[]
I don't have the intention of wasting your time that much with a long paragraph, but thanks so much to both of you for the tips. I have already removed every text from the Mario Wiki on articles. I have already rewritten the appearances section of Yoshi and Bowser (character) by following other decent articles like Lara Croft. Are these okay now? GeeJay24 (talk) 00:41, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Much like yesterday, It's me time o'clock so I'll check it first thing thing in the morning (well, my morning, it's probably a different time zone than yours). I cleared things up with SergeCross73 (the admin), and you're clear for future takeoff; just remember not to tag articles often, as they seemed to be on edge about that. And don't worry about wasting my time! I do this as a hobby, anyways. Panini!🥪 00:53, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]


I'm surprised you're not already an admin. Minkai (talk to me)(see where I screwed up) 18:34, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Admin rights, for the most part, are given to people who are mainly involved with tasks that admin work would give them more to do, such as combating vandalism, settling disputes, etc. That stuff is crazy boring to me and I don't know how people do it. Maybe later on down the line when I run out of Mario things to write about I might dive into it! Thanks for stopping by. Panini!🥪 03:06, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
