May I suggest this one instead? Mine has anti-alias and the same resolution.

I honestly don't see the difference except yours has more text cut off

Two things.

Template:Sectionstub still links to the PipeProject. Like Template:Stub, please make it [[forum:17764|stub]].

Also, please bypass the redirect to Prima redirect here by changing the link from [[Prima]] to [[Prima Games|Prima]].

To add to this and slightly improve navigation, I would like there to be a link to MarioWiki:Conjecture in this sentence:

Quote
If there is no official name in any language, then a [[MarioWiki:Conjecture|conjectural]] title is developed.
Thanks.

Template:Block should be categorized as a User Notice rather than a Notice Template, as per new policy.

For some reason I protected this page a couple of years ago and now I can't edit it, could someone remove the protection? Thanks.

The wiki user MarioSmasher currently has his subpage User:MarioSmasher/YTVideo categorized as a Video template. Please remove the userspace categorizing.

Additionally, Template:User should be categorized, preferably as either an Internal Link Template or Formatting Template. Thanks.

But you're a sysop. Can't you do it?

I don't think he can even have that subpage

He essentially retired, so no.

Can't he? But the Userspace Policy says that a user may create subpages that serve the wiki. In this case, it is a test template. An example of it's purpose and usage can be seen here.

Shouldn't his forum rank be changed then?

But Porple's law says no YouTube on non-user space articles

I've also got a similar template here, which is intended for userspace if ever used.

I don't think that's allowed either. Maybe just <noinclude> everything except that on your userpage?

There's nothing wrong with it or the other YT template linked above (apart from having a category, which I removed).
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Ah. Okay. I was kind of confused as I thought "serve the wiki" meant mainspace only or something. And you left the extra <noinclude></noinclude> there with nothing in between

Most of the time, yes, "serving" the wiki would indeed have mainspace applications as its end goal (or MarioWiki or some other non-User namespace), but these kinda things are a weird situation. They're more like talk archive directories or status pages - they're all used like templates, rather than subpages, and help the user manage their business. Now, if you made a tonne of user templates for every little thing, you'd be abusing your rights a bit and might raise some eyebrows, but this kinda thing is fine.
