SVG's on the wiki must use absolute paths. Updated the file.

An article is feature-worthy when it is reasonably "complete" and follows all the wiki guidelines. For some topics that will result in a long article, but for others it will be quite short. Nothing wrong with that.

Because EasyPrivacy blocks the phrase -boomerang_, which appears in the image URL.

We will not be switching to that logo. It's a Club Nintendo ripoff and I don't like the text placement.

Feel free to discuss other designs and reach out to me to present them. A new logo proposal should only be put forward after the design has my approval. That being said, let's give the new logo some time before we start planning to get rid of it.

I'm open to the mushroom logo, although resizing down from 1500x1500 isn't ideal. A native 150x150 version or SVG would be welcome.

Also, I wouldn't mind seeing an alternate version with the "Super Mario" text on separate lines and larger, like the current logo.

Oh, I see the issue. When you send an email using the email user function, the email is sent from our server but is made to look like it's being sent from the sender's email address. Yahoo no longer allows this, so Gmail is rejecting the email in accordance with Yahoo's policy.

I've made a change, and the email user function should now work in all cases.

Is that really the reason?
It is if you want it to be.

Yes, the max is 200px now! :yoshi:
After some user engagement A/B testing, 200px was determined to improve user experience by 22%.

Mario is a special case because it's above everything. That article focuses on the game series, and I think the rest should remain as series.

I feel good about this and if the proposal didn't pass I would force it to pass, so it's not that necessary. ;)

If someone wants to go around and update spelling to American, they can. But basically, the rule needs to be that the only allowed spelling change is from British to American. This protects people who add British text and don't know any better, but if a word gets updated to American, it's only against the rule to change it back. Then everything trends toward that consistent spelling goal.

What's the current reasoning on the guideline on which form of English to use? From my knowledge the wiki allows both forms, and I've been thinking, if the wiki uses the American names of games as standard, why not normal sentences? While some users will out of habit write the Brittish version of English(myself included), having American English as a standard will keep consistency throughout the wiki, I've seen articles say "color" in one sentence and "colour" in the next, and it looks unprofessional. Is this too much of a minor issue to bother changing?
This is something I've thought about too. I support standardizing to American English in articles for the same reasons we standardize to American game titles, and for consistency across the wiki.

Traffic is majority American, so most of the wiki is already this way. A user who adds new text with a different spelling hasn't done anything wrong, but if someone changes it to American spelling, there's no reason to change it back after that.
