What the point of articles like List of enemies / bosses in the Donkey Kong / Wario series pages? At the top of the list of enemies and bosses pages it even says "This is a list of enemies from the Mario series and all related series of video games and other media." and Wario and DK enemies appear in the enemies page, and Wario bosses appear in the bosses page. The list of enemies in Donkey Kong / Wario pages just seem redundant as the information is all present on another article that serves the exact same function.

Same goes for places ones as well.

Actually the Donkey kong pages are supposed to be merged as per this proposal http://www.mariowiki.com/MarioWiki:Proposals/Archive_27#Merge_all_Donkey_Kong_sidebar_lists_with_Mario_lists

Recently , Jhonatan2 was blocked for several reasons, especially for having many personal images.. Is there any need to keep any of those, even after he was blocked?

In my recent proposal about real-world animal templates, I said that it would be silly to place, say, Manager Joe and Wolf O'Donnell on the same template just because they're dogs. They don't resemble each other at all, they play completely different roles, they have completely different characteristics, they're in no way associated with one another besides species... I found the idea silly.

And then, I found Template:Stars, and this is a heck of a lot sillier than a template for dogs. With this template, we're implying that there's a concrete thread that ties Brighton, Ztar, Star Gate, the Sun, and Geno besides their appearance, which there totally is not. Half of these aren't "genuine" stars, but things that have a resemblance to stars, and not to mention that the stars that do show up often have radically different appearances between one-another.

The point I'm trying to make is, can I get the A-OK for deleting this?

The Stars template is more like a mix of an item template (which is worth having), and a species template (a bit trickier since it's not a generic RL species), plus some miscellaneous stuff at the bottom (which could be dealt with better). I dunno, unlike like the animal templates, I'm leery about deleting this one. At the very least, the items part should stay, and I'm inclined to say the character and species stuff should stay too - yes, there's variety, but I think saying the template's implying there's strong connections between things is reading too much into the organization method.

It just feels like the things in this template simply aren't related enough for them to be in a template. There are a large number of different types of stars in the series, each of them being completely different from each other in several ways, and I find it really disjointed. If the template was reorganized to be limited to variants of the standard Star, or even simply the items, I'd accept it.

The article reminds me of Mushroom Universe and All worlds, and the "Worlds distinct from Mushroom World" section bugs me especially. How about we skip the discussion about the name and go straight to deciding whether or not it should be deleted?

The way the page is now is clearly bogus and I agree it shouldn't exist in this form any longer.

I'm not sure what to do with the page though. The "Mushroom World" name is used in SMB3 to refer to TMK + the locations introduced in the game and it's mentioned again in Yoshi's Safari, so it's not a throwaway comment like the "Mushroom Universe" thing and thus may be worth having. On the other hand, LinkTheLefty's research on the talk shows the Japanese script of Paper Mario uses "Mushroom World" and "Mushroom Kingdom" interchangeably. So just what is it, exactly?
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Lol, I didn't even notice that stupid location list has Isle O' Hags.

Since nobody's else going to take the initiative...

The only reason I didn't make a talk page proposal is that there isn't much of a discussion.

Mushroom World in its current state is garbage.

Quote
Several small galaxies are in orbit around Mushroom World, including the Gateway Galaxy, the Good Egg Galaxy and Bowser Jr.'s Robot Reactor. Galaxies relatively close to Mushroom World on the map of the universe include the Sky Station Galaxy, Honeyhive Galaxy, the Loopdeeloop Galaxy and the Yoshi Star Galaxy.

Also, the assertion that "Grand Finale Galaxy" is the actual name of the galaxy Mario and his cronies inhabit is billshot.

How the flax can a Mushroom World have so much gravity to have galaxies (a.k.a. scattered planetoids) orbiting it?

I find it funny that the article tries to tie in the reality of the universe into a video game.

Worse, just look at the diction of this page.

Mushroom World and Earth are almost always believed to be separate planets, though confusion does exist in the form of remarkably similar ecosystems and terrains, several species of animals and obvious human populations on Mushroom World.
