Tagline/URL Changes

Hi DarkMatterMan, I would like some help changing my site URL as well as the site name. The site name I would like changed from "Super Mario Wiki, The Encyclopedia for everything Mario" to simply "Super Mario Wiki" (however I would like to keep "The Encyclopedia for everything Mario" as the tagline). Also, I would like the URL changed from to Thanks! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

Second this, I also request these changes & was the one who suggested them in the first place. RMV2003 (talk) 19:05, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
HannahMontanaFan You might want to file a Phabricator task on Phabricator, and an SRE member will assist you. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:05, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
On second thought, I have filed the task for you. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:30, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
Thank you RMV2003 (talk) 21:38, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
Wait, the request doesn't mention changing the sitename from "Super Mario Wiki, The Encyclopedia for everything Mario" to simply "Super Mario Wiki" though. RMV2003 (talk) 22:40, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
Yes, I forgot to mention that the sitename can be changed manually, but the URL change has to be done by SRE. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 00:18, 31 October 2021 (UTC)


Is there any reason why I'm having problems getting it to work or defining custom classes in it, etc.? For example, in MediaWiki:Monobook.css, I defined custom link colors, but the changes are not showing. RMV2003 (talk) 15:58, 31 October 2021 (UTC)


Hi, we would like to add mariowiki: interwiki to attribute some of the content (e.g. images) to, but neither me nor HMFan can edit Special:Interwiki. Do you know anything about this issue? RMV2003 (talk) 03:23, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Log in link

Hi, is it possible to change the Log in link to the combined Log in link (Log in / create account). I tried adding it myself but it sadly didn't work. User:HannahMontanaFan

Sockpuppet templates?

What is the purpose of these? RMV2003 (talk) 19:30, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

Glad you asked. It's for the purpose of recording the amount of sockpuppets that might come to this wiki, if there is a case where this wiki becomes a target for vandalism attacks. It's plain and simple. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 19:33, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
It would be sad if that were to happen (even though vandal edits can be easily reverted), as I've been putting thought & care into the articles/templates/etc. I've done here. RMV2003 (talk) 19:35, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
RMV2003 Hence the reason why I'm going forward with adding sockpuppet templates to this wiki. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 23:38, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

New background

This wiki has a new background based on Mario Wiki's (soon to be obsolete). I hope you like it Bawitdaba (talk) 22:20, May 25, 2022 (UTC)

@Bawitdaba: Looks decent to me. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 12:55, May 26, 2022 (UTC)

Japanese translations

Hi, I was wondering if you know or could help find someone who knows Japanese so that we can translate the manga sections on the Monty Mole species pages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:37, September 10, 2022 (UTC)

I could fetch someone who is interested. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 14:13, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
Oh cool! Are you cool with doing that right now and when you do mind telling me who the user is so I can chat with them? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:36, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
I was not aware that DMM knew someone who could translate Japanese. He is on Discord, so that could help him find someone more easily as well. Bawitdaba (talk) 15:01, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
Yeah I am excited to have someone help me with translating the manga so I can write the manga sections better, it is a shame that a lot of Monty Mole lore is in Japanese. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 15:08, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
Hey DarkMatterMan, I was wondering progress on finding someone to help translate is going? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 17:14, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
I said I could fetch someone who is interested. I didn't say I would do it right away. Sorry for the confusion. I've been lazy with editing lately. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 17:17, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
Oh ok, are you cool with trying to find someone right now or later? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 18:00, September 11, 2022 (UTC)
Possibly later. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 22:30, September 13, 2022 (UTC)
Oh ok, do you mind if you tell me when your ready to help find someone who can translate Japanese? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:01, September 14, 2022 (UTC)
Hi, so are you ready to find someone to help translate Japanese right now or soon? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:32, September 17, 2022 (UTC)
@MontyMoleLoreMaster: Sorry to disappoint you, but it might not happen. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 01:35, September 17, 2022 (UTC)
Also, not to mention that I have been pretty busy myself, so that's one of those factors. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 01:37, September 17, 2022 (UTC)
Awww I did really want help finding someone to help translate Japanese but I am not mad with your decision. Anyways, I did try all I could do to find someone who could help with Japanese but nothing worked. Do you have any suggestions that could help me find someone who can translate Japanese? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:03, September 17, 2022 (UTC)


How can you import templates from another wiki to this one? I also want to import templates, regards No se (talk) 02:20, April 27, 2023 (UTC)

@No se: Generally we don't import templates, although DMM had a tendency to do that once upon a time, and most of the site structure has been set up here already. Bawitdaba (talk) 18:49, April 28, 2023 (UTC)

Bad news

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that the Super Mario Wiki might be considering saying that the Undergrunt species are related to the Monty Mole species. The reason why this is bad is mainly due the fact that there is no substantial evidence on the Undergrunts being related to Monty Moles and I have a feeling that this edit (alongside them being incorrectly referred to Rocky Wrenches by the English Mario Portal, which is known for their numerous misnames and errors that make it an unreliable and non-credible source (despite what the Super Mario Wiki thinks otherwise)) could likely make the wiki incorrectly refer to the Undergrunt species as Monty Mole species members with flimsy evidence to prove their non-existent point. You agree that this is pretty annoying? If you do not believe me, I suggest checking this edit right here. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 20:21, January 28, 2024 (UTC)

Yeah, I do agree it's annoying as fuck. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:22, January 28, 2024 (UTC)
I know right. Also, have you seen how the Super Mario Wiki starting in 2022 acted like the English Mario Portal was a 100% reliable source (despite it having various misinformation and errors that make it far too unreliable to be conscripted a good source for naming)? It is really annoying since they know how unreliable the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia is and yet they act like the Mario Portal is 100% correct and has zero errors whatsoever (despite it very obviously having numerous misnames of various enemies and yet they prioritize it over actual guidebooks and in-game names). Also, have you also heard that the Super Mario Wiki is legit using names from the infamous English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia over official Japanese names (Obake Block and Obake Stand being renamed to Ghost Block and Ghost Vase is an example of what I mean)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 20:37, January 28, 2024 (UTC)
@MontyMoleLoreMaster: There are A LOT of sources that are indeed questionable. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 20:38, January 28, 2024 (UTC)
What are some other examples of questionable official sources? Also, mind helping out on this wiki more often (since many of the more active members are retired or inactive as of right now)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:37, January 28, 2024 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @MontyMoleLoreMaster: That I don't know. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 12:23, January 31, 2024 (UTC)

I'm sorta still around, but I just didn't want folks messaging about reopening wikis that I personally decided to close (more specifically, the ones I founded except Fanonpedia). Bawitdaba (talk) 22:03, January 31, 2024 (UTC)
@Bawitdaba: Question, do you mind letting me edit on your talk page so I can still talk to you every once in a while when I need to (and also not worry about people constantly talking about reopening wikis)? Also, did you hear about the dumb news of the Super Mario Wiki acting like Super Mario Galaxy Monty is related to Rocky Wrench? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:27, February 1, 2024 (UTC)
Sure, and yes I did read on this talk page about that. Bawitdaba (talk) 14:34, February 1, 2024 (UTC)

Japanese calligraphy

Do you have the patience to write in Japanese? Because I really want to know what is written in some words on Donkey Kong Country 1-2-3 Kodansha Encyclopedia, for example:

What is written about Krem Quay? - ChristopherPAraujo (talk) 13:49, February 1, 2024 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't really speak (let alone write) in Japanese. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 17:57, February 3, 2024 (UTC)
