Cell Phone Pictures[edit]

I wish to help out with the locations of warps and star coins when I get the chance. However, I'd like a ruling on whether I can use my cell phone for pictures (not the greatest quality, but it's what I got), and if a special page can be made. I think it would be too cluttered to be on just the front page. Wolfman2000 11:50, 27 June 2006 (PDT)

As it happens, I was thinking of making a fully fledged walkthrough for each course including secret paths, star coin locations and the like. I would say to start with creating pages called "New Super Mario Bros. Walkthrough: Index" and "New Super Mario Bros. Walkthrough: World 1" and then linking these pages with each other and the main page. As for cell phone images, go ahead. (Just make sure to put them in a category.) Someone will replace them with better images with time anyway. RovingRoflguy 1:53, 31 June 2006 (AEST)


I been adding a whole host of stuff over the last 3 days and I now wonder: Is the article still a stub? It still needs cleanup (mostly due to me) and controller button images, but I think it has enough depth in it now. If anyone actually checks this, can they give opinions? Thanks.

Garrett's already converted the stub to a wip, which is great. I'd say the game name needs emboldening in the first paragraph (a la Wikipedia), and perhaps some sub-paging done. --DrBob (Talk) 11:21, 31 July 2006 (CDT)
He did? Well that's good. I was sick of seeing four templates at the top of the article. It looked really odd. Regardless, I just added some more to the opening paragraph and made The New Super Mario Bros. bold. Is that what you meant? Also, any idea where I can get some decent images of gameplay? (More to the point, images of Goombas, Koopas, Pipes and the like.) And, last question, as for the sub-paging, I was thinking about putting up placeholders for a walkthrough. I could, with time, almost finish the walkthrough on my own (I have finished the game, every level and most of the star coins/secret paths) but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to create a walkthrough with no images whatsoever. What do you think? RovingRoflguy 11:08, 31 June 2006 (AEST)
The lack of images wouldn't be a huge barrier, after all GameFAQs gets by without them even for systems that are easy to capture from. You can probably get some good shots of the enemies from promo screenshots, but beyond that you're probably out of luck. GarrettTalk 21:34, 31 July 2006 (CDT)
I suppose your right, but GameFAQs has ASC11 (or whatever) going for them, and here it looks out of place. Hmmm. I might get around to doing a walkthrough, but certainly not now, or tommorow. --RovingRoflguy 14:40, 1 August 2006 (AEST)

Work in progress[edit]

Well, I have just finished the Mario vs. Luigi section and added a placeholder for minigames and I was wondering... Once I am done with the list of minigames, will this thing still be considered a work in progress? Just wanted to know because (assuming no one else does it first) I am planning on making the list of minigames tommorow and I'm wondering if when I'm done I can remove the tag. --RovingRoflguy 14:44, 1 August 2006 (AEST)

If you're still adding new sections, it's a work in progress. If all sections are there and at least mostly finished, the wip tag could be removed. :-) --DrBob (Talk) 05:22, 2 August 2006 (CDT)


It would be good if we had links to videos. I added a life-glitch in the secret section and a link to a video showing it. Hopefully I would upload a new video that has better quality. It would be good if there were videos that showed the enemy in action (with the music so the player can react in time).--Emaj 19:31, 5 September 2006 (CDT)

Already discussed in StrategyWiki:Community_Issues. Read the YouTube discuss there. Procyon 20:57, 5 September 2006 (CDT)
For now, just put a plain link to a video hosted elsewhere (such as on YouTube). We can import them once we've got the video stuff set up. --DrBob (Talk) 01:02, 6 September 2006 (CDT)


I'm working on it. I've finished World 1 and I'm halfway through World 2 (in one afternoon). I know I'll have tons of time next weekend as well, but I'm going to try working on it some more this week as well. --Elensar 15:31, 11 March 2007 (CDT)

I've finished World 2 and almost half of World 3, but I got to thinking. Should I try to order the levels in each world by chronology, or category? (1,2,a,3,tower,4,b,5,castle or 1,2,3,4,5,tower,castle,a,b). Also, not sure if its okay, but I removed the talk about the DS control pics and the change in beat making the goombas and koopas react, since they've been put in already. --Elensar 19:42, 11 March 2007 (CDT)
Whichever way you believe is easier for a user, though my guess would be by chronology (unless there's a lot of jumping between worlds or something). About removing previous discussions, usually you move them to an archive page (check the Community portal for an example), but if it's minor deletion should be fine. -- Prod (Talk) 19:47, 11 March 2007 (CDT)
I did ordered the levels in each world by their horizontal placement on the world map. If they are aligned with each other, # is before letter is before pipe/cannon. I'm done with Worlds 1-4 and halfway through World 5 now. I'll get the rest of World tomorrow hopefully (i've already got it on paper). I'll keep working till I finish. Afterwards, I'll add to the Enemies section (maybe make a separate page) and go over the control, make sure we have everything (swinging on ropes, climbing,....) EElensar 19:35, 16 March 2007 (CDT)
Another update. I through World 5 and about halfway with World 6. I'm using the phrase "hit the flagpole" instead of "finish the level." (I'll go back and change World 1-5). When I'm done writing all eight worlds, I'll start another file and beat the game using only the walkthrough so as to make sure it works. EElensar 19:28, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

Main page[edit]

I'm changing the main page to overviews of each mode of gameplay since I made minigames and Vs their own separate pages. I'm also moving the 99 lives secret to the Cheats page.

The main page should tell briefly (in maybe four or five sentences) about gameplay modes in the opening paragraph(s). Content-wise, the main page shouldn't have any information that would fit into an actual guide page. Therefore, I recommend that you move the stuff under the table of contents into their respective pages, and then remove them from the main page. --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 16:40, 11 March 2007 (CDT)
That's what I just did, and thanks for changing the Table of Contents. I didn't think of making it nicer. Do you think anyone else is still editing this guide? Elensar 16:48, 11 March 2007 (CDT)
Doesn't look like anybody is making any content additions to the guide but you right now, as as for the ToC, I'd say chronological order would be best (even though there is some flexibility in the order levels are visited, there isn't much). I just might break down and help on this guide too, but I'm too busy with Fire Emblem, Sword of Mana, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess at the moment. --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 20:39, 11 March 2007 (CDT)
