I joined basically as soon as I saw that a MarioWiki existed.

I got into plenty of arguments back then, and I regret not waiting a bit before joining.

One other thing I regret doing on the wiki: editing anonymously while my account was blocked. I don't know why I thought that would be okay, but it seemed fine to me at the time. Unfortunately, I earned myself a doubled block time for doing that. Ouch.

A few things mainly messaging inactive users as it made me look stupid. Also talking trash to a vandal while reverting it's edits. I also regret not joining with my current name and pretending to be someone else just to make myself look better... it really failed but I learned a valuable lesson upon all of these and I've been attempting to improve.

not being active enough in the community after a couple of years

acting like a total asshat and being a jerk to a whole lot of people here

not talking a lot with friends made from here

It isn't, I'm just saying I'm not gay (although I'd still eat Dimentio's ass)
This is an actual quote. This was an actual post. Somebody actually sat down and clacked in that combination of words onto their keyboard.

The best example for me is a certain thing I posted last May. It was... really immature of me. There's probably also a goldmine of stupid things I posted on the wiki, too. (I remember once calling a mod an idiot for deleting a page I made.)


One time, I tried to do stuff with a quote (it was my first post) and it didn't quote it, the quoting stuff in the reply showed. It looked cluttered up and messy to me, but I ignored it and never really saw it again.

acting like a total smug jackass faux-tough guy for the first year or two i was here and annoying everyone.

also, if i'm going to announce a userpedia story or mafia game and make a big deal about sign-ups, i'd better follow through.

I regret my handling of the whole Wayoshi/Willy scandal back in 2007. I should have told Steve of my suspicions.

Oh lord this thread is my home. Okay so when I first started out here, I was around nine or ten, which, as you can expect, did not end well. Getting into arguments, spamming, replying to myself in my own thread, calling Nabber a "vortex of hatred", if I recall that correctly, all of it almost got me banned. Surprised I wasn't to be honest. But easily the worst thing I did was during my "Smoochum Phase", as I'll call it. I would literally type "YAY SMOOCHUM" except add as many unnecessary letters as possible to make it as long as possible. I once met the maximum post length.
Hope I didn't bring back too many awful memories to those who remember me.

Being a total ass about my opinion on a children's video game.

Bragging about poor financial decisions.

Several dumb topics I made when I was relatively new, namely the "Fawful for Mario Kart 8" thing that I not only caused the locking of, but I was dumb enough to make it again after it was locked.

Lying at first about the PMTTYD 3D "leak" and pretending to believe it was real. On the plus side the forum did gain a bunch of new traffic that way.

The stupidest things I have done (these are new things) is insulting people, swearing excessively, making 10 threads a day, and probably more stuff.
I like cinnamon buns.

No, yesterday I made like 1 or 2 threads. Also, I only swore once.

If you want to know what my regrets for being banned from the wiki it's the following:

-Asking a simple question that involves power-ups from a certain game.
-Following certain rules on from the wiki that can get you banned.
-Befriending a certain user who formally goes by the name of YoshiKong.
-Trying to continue making the Kingdom Builder Article for Super Mario Run: https://www.mariowiki.com/User:LTIan/Sandbox_Land
-Koopaling Speculations from Paper Mario: Color Splash.

If anyone else knows what else that I've been banned for that I may have forgotten, please let me know.
