Course descriptions tend to be like this (I should know, I wrote quite a few of them back in the day cough), when I think they should be rewritten to be more of a general overview of the course than a sentence-by-sentence walkthrough of it.

It's not really proposal material, just good writing we need to do.

The shell-shielded Koopa Troopa can make the ball bounce several times, while Nimble Ninji can use Glide Dash and float over opponents on the way to the next hole.
“Nimble Ninji”? Most likely a typo, considering “shell-shielded” is not capitalized in the Koopa Troopa bit. I’ve explained this situation in the Mario Golf: Super Rush section on Ninji’s page—do you guys think it’s worth keeping?

I know this board isn't super active, but I have not many places to discuss a little about "references to other games" sort short of enacting a proposal (and then possibly getting comments that have perspective I never thought of, so I don't want to go to proposal route yet). I've looked at Mario Tennis Aces and I noticed a lot of its references were basically just "stock art that just so happened to first appear in x game is in Mario Tennis Aces and so it's a reference to x game". Or, a voice effect that has been reused from another game even though they might as well be stock. I feel we should narrow that down more. Of course there's sometimes a little debate on what's "stock" or not, but I don't think it's necessarily a reference to Mario Kart if Mario says "whoohoo" in Mario Tennis in the same way as he did in Mario Kart.

I feel like I proposed something similar to this a while back but the general consensus then was "they reused an asset made for this game so it's a reference". Still don't quite agree with that, so I'd be on board with this.

EDIT: Nevermind I was completely wrong, I found the original proposal and the issue was that there was no consensus, but it was generally leaning in the direction of them not being references, at least in certain cases.

(late reply) lol now I remember opposing it on grounds that references should be a case-by-case thing. I guess it IS individual call apparently but I feel it would be nice if it was codified or something.

Anyway another question/concern I have is regarding a "list of game appearances" subsections we're getting. I know MarioWiki is primarily about its video games but should this be limited to games? It's good as a quick overview but sometimes it's also nice to see some whack appearances.

Though I do think those appearance sections should be constrained to an extent. Mario's appearances section is huuuuge enough already (its formatting is also... different from the other pages mainly because I at the time used Wikipedia as a base for Mario's appearances) and he has received a plethora of comics all for himself so..... but I thought it would be neat if we could figure out we could see when, say, Waluigi appeared in this one chapter of Super Mario-kun alongside Waluigi's other appearances, we have this neat timeline and such without those summaries bogging down this overview.

Maybe we could conjure up a list of other media appearances as well, such as list of television, manga, music, or book appearances.
