edit: In the interest of not making an overly big deal out of this, I'll just post all of the links that I collected here.
For articles that currently share disambiguation pages with only a single other article:

Took care of all (plus a couple others) but one; I'm not quite sure what you want to do with "Shield". Are you suggesting moving it to "Shield (move)" and turning "Shield" into a disambiguation page? You're able to do that without any page deletion required.

Now we just need to fix all those redirect links (especially Pit's ones... hoo boy).

Gah, the Blaster page completely slipped my mind, and that was the first page I found (speaking of missing examples, I also came across Judge, which links to Judge (Game & Watch) and Judge (move)). I'll chip away at the links whenever I have the time.

I'm not quite sure what you want to do with "Shield". Are you suggesting moving it to "Shield (move)" and turning "Shield" into a disambiguation page? You're able to do that without any page deletion required.
Basically that, while also splitting the Mario & Sonic subject into a separate article, and now that you mention it, I totally don't need any admin help with that. Welp.

MarioWiki:FAQ, in question "How do I delete pages?"
It mentions the {{tobedeleted}} template, which was moved to {{delete-request}}.  The page is locked, so I can’t fix it.

Special:UncategorizedTemplates
Everything listed on this maintenance page is locked, so I can’t categorize them.

Special:BrokenRedirects
These are all in the User namespace, and I would like it cleaned out, please.

Special:DoubleRedirects
Same problem as the broken redirects, they are all in the User namespace.  Please fix them so we can clear the list.

MarioWiki:Userspace
This is minor.  A few months back I made the MW:US shortcut.  I would like it to be added to the list of shortcuts, thanks.

Well, good luck getting through this list!
Just a friendly reminder of these focuses.

Ditto is a redirect to Pokémon despite Ditto (Super Paper Mario) existing and despite Ditto not even appearing in-game without the use of hacks to access the internal data.

Those pages are not locked, you know.  But yeah, SPM Ditto is far more relevant to the Mario franchise than the Pokémon, and as such SPM Ditto should drop its identifier.

This thread is also used to request edits non-admin users can't do themselves (in this case, "Ditto (Super Paper Mario)" can't be moved to "Ditto" until the latter is deleted).

Anyway, it's done.

MarioWiki:Good Writing is an unnecesary redirect.

Inaccurate count and missing games?! :

Daisy is listed to have appeared in: 72 games

Waluigi is listed to have appeared in: 57 games

But it's actually:

Daisy: 72 games

Waluigi: 73 games


In the Super Mario Wiki, Daisy is listed to have appeared in 72 games.
While Waluigi is listed to have appeared in only 57.
Seems fair, right?
Not really.

As I did further research, I've actually found out that there are a bunch of games with Waluigi (reference him at least) that are not listed on his page, and those same games are listed on Daisy's page.

Not to mention that for some reason, on Daisy's page games like "Mario&Sonic Olympic games" are spread out as their own games like this:

1-Mario&Sonic at the Olympic Games Wii
2-Mario&Sonic at the Olympic Games DS

While on Waluigi's page they are counted as one like this:

1- Mario&Sonic at the Olympic games Wii/DS

So here are some games that have Waluigi, but aren't listed on his page. And keep in mind, that other than Paper Mario TTYD, and Super Mario Odyssey all of these are listed on Daisy's page:


1- Super Mario Fushigi no Korokoro Party
(Playable)
Year 2004

2- Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door
(Costume)
Year 2004

3- Super Mario Fushigi no Korokoro Party 2
(Playable)
Year 2005

4- Wi-Fi Taiou Yakuman DS
(Playable)
Year 2006

5- Mario Party Fushigi no Korokoro Catcher
(Playable)
Year 2009

6- Mario Party Whirling Carnival
(Playable)
Year 2012

7- StreetPass Mii Plaza
(Waluigi Hat)
Year 2012

8- Nintendo Badge Arcade
(Badge)
Year 2014

9- Hey! Pikmin
(Amiibo)
Year 2017

10- Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Arcade Edition
(Playable)
Year 2017

11- Mario Kart Arcade GP DX
(Playable)
Year 2017

12- Super Mario Odyssey
(Costume)
Year 2017


And so, I tried to count the Olympic games individually like on Daisy's page, and counted some of the missing games on Waluigi's page. And what do you know, the results speak for itself.

Daisy has appeared in: 72

Waluigi has appeared in: 73

Keep in mind that references for Daisy (Like her crown for example) are counted as "game appearances"
While it's not the same for Waluigi.

Actually, those would just be references to the character. Its only when the character themselves appear when it counts as a game appearance. Just their crown or hat or whatever doesn't count as a full appearance.
