Awesome, I was going to ask what to do with those images. Hopefully I'll be able to begin work on this before the new year rolls round :)

Well the bad news is that imgur crapped itself with its hipster coding, so you can't use it anymore to upload Wii U gameplay screenshots.

Ok, first things first: I want to move all Featured Article archive pages to a more consistent naming scheme

MarioWiki:Featured articles/A/Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story -> MarioWiki:Featured articles/N1/Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

-/A/

+/N#/

And

MarioWiki:Featured articles/Archive/N1/Badge -> MarioWiki:Featured articles/N1/Badge

-/Archive

This may require some reordering, so I might need some admin help for moving pages.

I also think we should add a parameter to those archive notice templates rather than awkwardly putting a line of bold text just outside the template.

Shouldn't that also apply to TPPs with the "current time" parameter in that box?

I've nominated Paratroopa's article to be featured.

MarioWiki:Featured articles/Unfeature/N/Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

This article isn't exactly terrible, not like Mario Kart 64 terrible, but it could use SO much more for improvement to be featured on the main page, especially when two other RPG games, Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time appear to be in a far, far, far better shape than this article and they're both featured. This is coming from someone who has never played the game, though, so extra info on any potential missing content would be nice.

I've been trying to improve Mario Party Advance and eventually make it a featured article. Off the top of my head, I know that the story and game modes sections can still be expanded and there are still a couple of empty sections, but is there anything else that I should work on?

The article needs screenshots for the Game Modes and you need to write a gameplay section, talking about how you play the game. There's no explanation to how the game is played, so I'd like a section that deals with the Dice Blocks you get, the rock-paper-scissor minigame thing from Koopa Kids, how minigames are played, etc. I also think a map of Shroom City would suffice, so we know what "Seaside Section" exactly is.

This map from Spriter's Resource should do, right?

Yeah that's perfect.

You also need a table of the spaces you land on, like other Mario Party articles, like the yellow spaces or the dice block areas. Try looking at my Mario Party 6 article for some inspiration of how Mario Party Advance should ideally look like and edit accordingly.

I'm not sure a table for the spaces is necessary. There are four spaces, and one of them is a do-nothing space (unless a random event happens). I think that it would be better if I simply describe them in a section, and then use that as a launching point to talk about the rock-paper-scissors minigame and the Bowser blockade.

Baby Luigi, https://www.mariowiki.com/index.php?title=MarioWiki:Featured_articles/Unfeature/N/Culex&curid=226872&diff=2219007&oldid=2218941

And to anyone, when voting to remove support or oppose votes, you have to give a better reason other than just "per this guy", as stated here. Time Turner's removal vote is valid, though Supermariofan67's, Baby Luigi's, and Yoshi876's were not.

No, you're wrong. I'll repeat what I said.

Alex95, you completely misinterpreted the rules. That rules is talking about per votes dealing with removal of opposition, where those votes would be automatically removed if the original reason is removed. Per votes FOR removing opposition is allowed. Tucayo's vote shouldn't be there at all, since we voted to remove his vote; he can't reinstate the vote for the ''exact'' reasons it was removed, that would be abusing the system.

MarioWiki:Featured_articles#How_to_nominate doesn't say that anywhere, though yes, they would be removed as the vote would be missing then. "Any vote that has per'd without providing any additional reason will also be removed" is placed within the information on removing support and/or oppose votes. Seems to be more along the lines of "you need to provide a removal reason of your own."

It seems completely stupid to provide your own reason for removing a vote if someone else lays out good enough reasoning.

Before a proposal that allowed removing fanvotes on sight, it would have been ridiculous to have three people all say fanvote, instead of one saying it, and the others perring it.

My interpretation of that sentence is any vote simply perring the vote that was removed are also to be removed.

EDIT
https://www.mariowiki.com/MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive_32#Remove_Per_Votes_When_Original_Vote_is_Removed

This is the proposal that brought in the rule, what the proposal sets out is that when someone sets up a removal of support/oppose if it's successful it removes that vote, and all other votes that just simply perred it. It states nothing about the people having to provide their own reasoning in the removal of support/oppose section. Rule was probably just put in the wrong place, and should be moved, and if there's still confusion rewritten.

So, was the removal of Tucayo's vote valid or invalid?
