Have ideas on how to improve the Super Mario Wiki Forum? This forum is still in its beginnings. New boards? A different skin style? Something entirely different? Post it here (be reasonable) and the administrators will look at it to see if it's possible and if it's a good addition.

I personally would like to see Ranks on the forum (for example, at registering, you are a Goomba, then at 50 posts, Koopa Troopa, 150, Paratroopa, and so on). Is this possible to set on a phpBB 2 board?

Yeah, it's possible. Post a list of some good ones up until 1000+. When you reach 1000 posts you can edit your own title through your profile.

There's a good mix of the common enemies and common items of the Marioverse.

They have to go from crappiest enemy to a big enemy, like from Goomba to Bowser, with each enemy tougher than the last. While that could easily be debatable, putting Piranha Plant before Fire Flower and Mushroom, for example, really doesn't make any sense.

I eliminated items because they get too confusing. Is that better?

Or something similar.
 
I want to be able to view posts in a topic from the newest to the oldest. This view is useful if you've made a topic and want to quickly see replies, or for seeing your rating in "Rate the above user's sig games".

That feature is right below my post as I speak. Go to the bottom of any thread, and in the "Oldest First" select box, make it "Newest First".

That's the final thing as of this minute. Ranks are subject to change without warning. But you have one of those Wiki Sysop ranks, so don't worry about it.

Now I can read that.

Shouldn't we change the ranks so it fits the Wiki Alliance?

Like Kremlings and Kritters?

Or Magons and Unithorns?

I don't know. My guess would be to make a list mixing characters from the different game series we cover. So take the Mario list and take some out and add in others from different series.
 

King Zing

Goomba
As for a new skin style you could make it Bowsers Castle background. *Also mabey Wasp Hive for DK Wiki*
 

Smiddle

Power Star
Link in the banner

The link saying "wiki" in the banner points to www.mariowiki.com/index.php/Main_Page. Broken.

Also, mwiki tags around [mwiki]Main Page[/mwiki] links to Main+Page rather than Main_Page.
