Editing Tips & Tricks[edit]

I've noticed you've been making a lot of minor edits on the same page recently. While it is perfectly acceptable to improve how a page looks, please try to reduce the amount of edits it takes to get there. Here are a few tips that can help with that:

  • Use the "Show Preview" button! This is one of the first things experienced editors do after they finish typing out their content (or revising pre-existing content). This allows them to see what the page looks like before they actually save it. If they don't like how something looks, they can change it and preview again, and nobody but them will know.
  • Have an idea of what you are going to type before you actually begin typing it. That way, it won't take multiple edits to complete one section of a guide.
  • Read the StrategyWiki:Guide and our policies. If you are confused about something, feel free to ask us.

Thank you, and I hope you continue to contribute to StrategyWiki! --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 15:35, 24 April 2007 (CDT)

Also, if you could please add the {{Header Nav}} to each new guide page you create by putting {{Header Nav|game=<insert game's name here>}} on the very top of the page, I would very much so appreciate it! --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 17:30, 15 May 2007 (CDT)
If you accidentally upload the wrong image, rather than uploading to a new name, just upload over the old image. Also, please remember to follow the categorization guidelines. -- Prod (Talk) 16:42, 1 June 2007 (CDT)

Your Image[edit]

Hi, you might not know this but this image is actually a .bmp, not a .png, this will mean that you will have trouble linking to it. Do you mind if I upload a .png version of it?--Rocky http://media.strategywiki.org/images/thumb/7/78/Rally-X_Rock.png/25px-Rally-X_Rock.png (Talk - Contributions) 14:24, 5 June 2007 (CDT)

Please sign your posts![edit]

If you don't, it makes it difficult to know who said what. Thanks. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 17:14, 5 June 2007 (CDT)

Your recent upload[edit]

What is the point of Image:Gamecube-Control-Neutral-Left or Right.png? I see no places where it would be particularly useful, especially since I have no idea what it is trying to represent. --SkizzerzTalk - Contribs 15:27, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

I'd recommend a picture of a green shell with an arrow in front of and behind it, as it represents what it means a bit more. Also, you could just say that it can be thrown both ways in text with no image required. The button templates are really for widespread use of the images, across multiples of guides not in the same series. I'll try to find an image like that online (or doctor one myself) for you to see what you think of it. --SkizzerzTalk - Contribs 15:37, 7 June 2007 (CDT)
How about Mariokart throwbothways.png? --SkizzerzTalk - Contribs 16:21, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

{{All Game Nav}} deprecated[edit]

{{All Game Nav}} has been replaced with {{Header Nav}} (same template, just a better name), so please use Header Nav instead of All Game Nav. Also, the backpage, backname, and customback parameters on {{Footer Nav}} have been replaced with prevpage, prevname, and customprev respectively. While AGN and the backs still work, we are trying to discontinue their use (see the discussion). Thanks (and I'm glad you liked the image). --SkizzerzTalk - Contribs 15:41, 8 June 2007 (CDT)

Unreleased information[edit]

Hey, thanks for your help with the Mario Kart Wii guide. When adding unreleased information, try not to jump a step ahead and add empty or unknown sections like the TBA stuff. Until a name is released, just don't worry about it. Also, there's no need to add {{stub}} to such a section as well - think of it like this: the stub promotes people to help add information, but on a section for a thing that doesn't exist, such information doesn't exist, thus it's not possible to add information and thus we don't need to use the stub template. More importantly, we don't need the section at all (as I said before). Thanks, but just be patient! I'll help you as much as I can. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 15:59, 25 July 2007 (CDT)

Mario Party 6[edit]

Anybody willing to finish this article???? Superpowered Mario 17:21, 22 August 2007 (CDT)

It's a little silly to ask this kind of question. If someone was willing to work on it, don't you think they would have done so? It's not as though someone is going to see your question and think, "Oh thank goodness somebody asked about this, now I can go ahead and contribute." Also, it is really important that you learn to use the Show Preview button, and that you do not save until you are completely finished editing a page. Thank you. Procyon (Talk) 19:16, 22 August 2007 (CDT)

I'm going to completely chew you out here, so try to stay with me, mmk (you have been warned)? First of all, you aren't a new contributor, you KNOW how wikis work (at least, I think you know how they work). However, you seem to be neglecting the Show Preview button to check over your work before you submit it. Also, you know about those little buttons over the edit box (not the blue-background ones, but the white-background ones above them), right? They set up a page with the proper formatting if the page is new. Use them. The "Guide Page" one would be most appropriate for *gasp* Guide Pages! If you tried it out, you would notice that {{All Game Nav}} has been deprecated in favor of {{Header Nav}}. Plus, you edited after we made that change, so check out Community Issues every so often (it might help to put it on your watchlist) so that you know what kind of changes are being made to the site. Also, you know about that button that inserts the horizontal line (----), please read its tooltip. It says "use sparingly," which means that you shouldn't use it when a better alternative exists. Let's see, since you were making a list there, perhaps a * would have been in order (which, as you probably already know, makes a bulleted list - if you didn't know that, here's a link for you to get acquainted with these things). Also, you should know by now that we have a strict image naming policy, yet every single image on that page is incorrectly named. The policy is viewable here, so look at that and re-upload the images with proper names. Let's see what else... oh yes, when putting stuff on pages, try to think what could go into Getting Started or Walkthrough, as having big bolded red links in the Table of Contents isn't really fun. The entirety of that page in Mario Party 6 that you've made about the spaces and such would fit perfectly under "Getting Started." I really hope you know how to change it's location (hint: there's a tab entitled "Move"). Also, please read the documentation on {{stub}}, you'll find that it says in nice bolded letters "at the top of the page", not the bottom, so keep that in mind for later on (it goes above the Header Nav). Finally (yes, I'm almost done), this hasn't changed (well, names-wise that is), but the {{Footer Nav}} is what goes at the very bottom of the page, not another Header/All Game Nav. It might have been an oversight, but that's what show preview is for, right? Normally, I wouldn't be yelling at people for this, but you've been around since April, that gave you four whole months to learn how things are done here, yet it seems that you either have chosen not to learn them or chosen not to care. Complain about how mean I am to you, flame me, I care not. I just would like to see a veteran (you have more than 250 edits and have been here for a few months, so I think I can call you that) actually conform to the standards that many people worked hard to create and uphold since the conception of StrategyWiki. --http://media.strategywiki.org/images/1/16/Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 20:57, 22 August 2007 (CDT)

Wow, a day later and I read that again... I really sounded like an ass, didn't I? Anyway, it seems that Rocky renamed the ones on that page (you just need to move it to its better location, if you feel that it is a better location). Yeah, show preview is a nice feature, and I'm sure you'll catch onto it (and the rest of the things above) rather quickly now that you have been informed yelled at about them. As for your sig, see below. --http://media.strategywiki.org/images/1/16/Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 20:25, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

New Sig[edit]

Try not to use yellow... Yellow on white = blinding and incomprehensible. Plus, it's McDonalds themed right now. Ahaha. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 14:53, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

More like fast-food themed in general, as like mustard and ketchup (or catsup, depending on how you like to spell it). Although, I do see where you're going on that angle w/ the McDonalds NMH. Anyway, if you want to use yellow, may I suggest a nice #909000 (go into editing to see how I did it)? Of course, you might want to darken the red to #900000 too. Oh yeah, and if you want that extra pipe in front of the Superpowered part, you should probably darken that too to go with the rest of the colors (#000090 would be ideal). And, I know it's more typing, but try to use <span style="color:some color"> instead of <font color="some color">, as <font> is slowly being deprecated. --http://media.strategywiki.org/images/1/16/Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 20:25, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

Mario Party 6/Mini-Games[edit]

How are you going to do the strategies? Page by page for each individual one? Why not just do them by section (which is why I had the ToC laid out like that)? --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 16:43, 7 September 2007 (CDT)

Image categorisation[edit]

Hi. When uploading images could you please make sure to categorise them according to our image categorisation guidelines? Thanks. --DrBob (talk) 17:17, 7 December 2007 (CST)

Zelda OOT images[edit]

Hey SM, for images like Image:OOT eyeballfrog.jpg (that aren't screenshots), you need to put information in the description regarding where you found/got it. Aren't those from the OOT website? --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 18:51, 8 December 2007 (CST)

Do not put anything on the images themselves. They should not have any watermarks or such markings on them. If you need to put the website, add it to the description page. --Skizzerz_Scissors.png Safety Skizzerz {{ Talk | Contribs | Spel Chek™ | VFG | RTFM }} 17:35, 10 December 2007 (CST)
You need the http:// in there for the link to work. Also, check out the guide, especially it's markup section, to see how to do other forms of external links. --Skizzerz_Scissors.png Safety Skizzerz {{ Talk | Contribs | Spel Chek™ | VFG | RTFM }} 15:04, 11 December 2007 (CST)

Super Mario 64 and DS[edit]

Hi SM. The solution to this problem is not to separate the games into two guides, but rather the clean the existing guide up. Since Super Mario 64 DS is a super-set of the original game, 95% of what applies to SM64 applies to SM64 DS. Therefore, we group the guides to prevent redundancy. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is another example of this, as it originated on the SNES, and was later remade for the GBA. The best way to clean up the SM64/DS guide is to differentiate the DS content from the original content with headers or side-boxes. Procyon (Talk) 22:22, 12 May 2008 (CDT)

Font Colors[edit]

From now on, please use color codes (6 digit hex values) for colors; not all browsers parse the color names correctly, especially ones like "Sky Blue". Instead, use something like "#3090C7". For sample colors/a simple palette with color codes, check out http://www.computerhope.com/htmcolor.htm. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 16:01, 12 July 2008 (CDT)

Image Sizes[edit]

If an image has been designated to use the thumb parameter, please do not add a size restriction. Thumbnails are dynamically re-sized based on a user's preferences, so if you want bigger or smaller images you can change it there (some people like them very large). Thanks, --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:05, 27 July 2008 (CDT)

Image Categorization[edit]

Please add categories to your images; review StrategyWiki:Guide/Image naming for help. Every image guide-specific image should have at least two categories. Thanks, --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 19:51, 25 August 2008 (CDT)

If they are items use Category:Items. Category:Artwork is for, well... read the description on the category page. --Skizzerz 15:33, 26 August 2008 (CDT)

Comment about Mario_Kart:_Double_Dash!!/Mushroom_Cup#Baby_Park[edit]

I noticed you created the image for it, but the text of "just don't hit the rollercoaster" isn't correct. I'm very sure you can't hit the rollercoaster. I wasn't sure how to edit images, so I was hoping you could fix it. RobJ1981 04:50, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Submitting images that are not yours[edit]

On each image, please credit the site where you have been copying them from. A name is fine, but a specific URL is even better. Thanks, --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 07:42, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Replacing images[edit]

When replacing images, please upload over the old ones instead of uploading under a new file name. We have to delete the old files (unused), and in doing so we lose the ability to look at the old version (it's deleted...). So next time, just click on the link (it says "Upload a new version of this file" under the file history section) on the image you're revising. Actually, I'd like you to go back and do that for Image:LoZ_OOT_Dodongofloor2.jpg as there is no reason to have a pseudo-duplicate. Thanks, --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 11:18, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Pages you're working on[edit]

Please don't put that shell image on pages you're working on, as no one is going to know what it means. Meta notes should stay off the page, and for works in progress we have the {{wip}} template, which floats off to the side and doesn't look like a part of the main content. - najzere 21:32, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Image Naming[edit]

Can you please add the game prefix to the front of the image name when you are uploading them, so Image:Bulletblaster.jpg would become Image:MKDD Bulletblaster.jpg. Thanks--Rocky (talk · Contribs) 21:55, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Twilight Princess[edit]

Keep it second-person (aka do not say "Link" in your text). The rest of the guide is in second-person POV, so changing it to third-person for a sentence here and there is bad. --Skizzerz 21:40, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Looks good! And yeah, I see what you mean about the dominion rod being hard to resize, but I think it looks good as-is now (I floated it to the right so the darknut image wasn't right on top of it). --Skizzerz 21:36, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Also, can you please put {{-}} after each of the sections where you add images? The image flows into the next heading on wide resolutions, which makes the edit section link float down into the text, which looks really bad. --Skizzerz 21:20, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Image naming[edit]

I see you've been uploading a few images lately. When doing so, could you please make sure to name them properly? The image policy is viewable here, and contains all the information you'll need to name future uploads. --Skizzerz 21:46, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Also, keep the images to a reasonable size, too big is bad when it comes to decorative images. I've deleted the three images you just uploaded for Twilight Princess due to their bad names, please upload them correctly and smaller next time. --Skizzerz 21:46, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Quantity of images[edit]

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/North Horon and Gnarled Root Dungeon seems to have a lot of images. Are those all needed? Since we use all images under fair use, we try to keep images to what is necessary to demonstrate a fact, without showing everything to the level. I don't know how many should be there, but do try to keep it to a minimum. -- Prod (Talk) 00:37, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

If that's what's required, that's fine, but do your best not to keep to a smaller amount. -- Prod (Talk) 02:07, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

Hi, could you upload another version of Image:MKDD Tilt-A-Kart.JPG without the "made by" note on it and with a spelling correction? Specifically if you could change where it says "wihte" to say "white." Thanks, - najzereT 21:53, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to double post, but I think it would actually be better if the image had no writing on it at all. Accompanying text should really be in the thumbnail description so users have access to modify it if need be. Thanks, - najzereT 22:00, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Page moves[edit]

Hey, I moved the Walkthrough from The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages to the Arrival page. That way we can keep the history intact. If you want to rename a page like that, just move it (there's a tab at the top), then put the {{delete}} template on the old page and an admin will get rid of it. Thanks, - najzereT 19:56, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Show preview again[edit]

You've been a user here for quite a long time, so I'm sure you know by now about the Show preview button and how it works. You've been asked to please use this feature before, and now I have to ask once again. You are creating extremely long history lists with tons of tiny edits instead of making one consolidated edit. My suggestion to you is to get your images in order when you decide to come on and edit, upload them all and put them all in at once. If you are playing the game as you're editing, just leave the page open and keep using Show preview. Every time you make an edit, an admin has to go look at it and mark it as patrolled. This is just a warning, but it would be nice if editors like yourself that have been around for a while set a good example for the new users. Thanks, - najzereT 20:29, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Congrats[edit]

Great job on The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/North Horon and Gnarled Root Dungeon. The only thing I can think of to improve on it is a dungeon map/floor plan and peer revision/cleanup. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 01:49, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

For a map, I would suggest something that scales well to the page and allows readers to see key objects and locations (i.e. chests, entrance, and boss). If you can find a map that leaves enemy sprites in, that is also really nice when trying to figure out where you're going, what's up next, etc. Big maps are better, but harder to scale, but if someone is really going to look at a map, they're going to want as much detail as possible. I haven't played the game, but I know the series well, so LTTP is a good guide to emulate. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 22:51, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Regional spelling[edit]

Hi, be careful that you're not changing regional spellings from European to American. Words like "centre" and "colour" are used in other countries and our policy is to go with the regional variant first used on the page. - najzereT 20:33, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Copyrighted content[edit]

Please don't add copyrighted content, including uploading copyrighted images. The watermark in the lower corner is a pretty good giveaway that you can't use the image. While the screenshots themselves are usable under fair use, the creator of the image at VGmaps has presented them in a unique manner that we can't copy. Also, don't put an extra page title at the top of guide pages; that is handled by the MediaWiki software which puts the page's title at the top at level one heading size. — najzereT 21:14, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Too many images[edit]

The point of the walkthrough is to outline, illustrate, describe, and solve difficult challenges for readers. Please do not add excessive images from cutscenes that hold no value other than to depict the entire cutscene that a player is forced to watch. I know it took a lot of work to capture everything for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Temple of Time, but the images are unnecessary and make the page bulky and excessively long. The cutscenes in the walkthroughs should only be described to remind readers of the plot, as well as provide continuity between the game and guide. Keep images to a minimum: we want them where they are needed (e.g. showing a boss weakness, puzzle solution, floor map, depicting a new character, or specifying a location or object). Thanks, --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 05:11, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Your latest image is a perfect example of what you should continue to do. Keep up the great work! --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 03:11, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi, this is the third request (on this page anyway) to please limit the images you're uploading to those that are needed to explain the text on the page. The entire OoT guide has been marked for cleanup now due to the copious images, three administrators have asked you to cut down on excessive images, and yet you still don't show any sign of modifying your uploads. As has been pointed out before, the pages are becoming cluttered and the content is no longer considered "fair use" under applicable copyright law. I'd suggest you go through your guides and remove any extraneous images, because if I have to do it, some images that you like more than others might not make the cut. — najzereT 22:47, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

OOT Maps[edit]

Hmm, yes, good catch. I'd completely forgotten about those. They are indeed edited scans from the official guidebook, which is likely a copyvio. I don't have the book in front of me so I can't be sure what the actual copyright status on this, but I think they should probably be taken down and replaced with a more free alternative in the meantime. --Skizzerz 03:06, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

If you email me the scans I can make a free alternative. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 04:23, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, they're edited to begin with since I removed a bunch of stuff (using MS Paint, no less xD I really was a noob back then). I don't have the access to make more scans since the book is at my house, but I can get them to you as soon as possible. (Sorry for hijacking your talk page SPM, but having a convo on three different talk pages is confusing as hell) --Skizzerz 06:03, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
It's not a problem for me, but I've been really out of commission lately thanks to a computer virus. I recently had to perform a system restore and I lost EVERYTHING. My screenshots survived, though. What little I had saved outside of my computer also made it. It's going to be a nightmare getting my email address fixed (and avoiding going on a primal rampage.)--|Superpowered Mario 20:35, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Multiple edits[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that we've had a change of policy on making small, rapid-fire edits to a page. Making a single consolidated edit instead of many tiny ones is more of a convenience to admin who patrol recent changes, rather than something to be avoided on a wiki. Don't worry about getting everything right in the first go, just edit whichever way is easiest and most comfortable for you. I hope that relieves any stress you may have been feeling when you clicked the Save page button! Happy editing, :) — najzereT 21:22, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi. You've been told this before, but please don't make small edits to a page that add nothing to the overall content. Also, don't change words in a guide that are in another dialect of English. (i.e. If the guide says 'customise', don't change it to 'customize'. That edit has been undone from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks/Train Parts.) It's a StrategyWiki policy. These spellings are used in other countries, and therefore are as valid as the American spellings. Similarly, the policy states that if most of a guide is in one dialect, try to keep your edits in the same dialect. If you're not sure of the differences, add {{cleanup}} to the top of the page, and someone else will fix it later. Thanks, Moydow (talk) 21:36, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

That's OK. I must admit, I'm a bit of a perfectionist myself. But regional language differences aren't necessarily imperfections. Only if they're consistent in one page of a guide (for example, one page in British English in a guide written mostly in American English) should they be changed. Other than that, your work's been really good. So keep that up, and just cut down on the unnecessary edits. Moydow (talk) 20:45, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Lost edits[edit]

You seem to be having a fair number of problems with saving pages from your edit summaries. What's going on? -- Prod (Talk) 21:27, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

It could be caused by opening multiple edit pages at the same time, or something timing out, or errors over the wireless. If you're making a lot of changes, I'd suggest copying it into a text file before hitting the save button. Though usually, even if there is a problem like that, if it doesn't save the content there, you should be able to hit back and your edits should all still be there. -- Prod (Talk) 21:24, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

We need you more[edit]

You are awesome. I wish I saw your edits more often. Come back! =) --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 03:42, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Mega Man Zero 2[edit]

Hi Superpowered Mario. I'm upgrading the guide for Mega Man Zero 2, trying to bring it to completion stage 4. I have a question for you: what would you like to see in the "Allusions" page? It's now the only one that still has to be created. --Abacos (talk) 18:37, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry to say it, but your knowledge of punctuation is quite poor; in particular, I see that you use the hypenation (that is not a proper punctuation mark) instead of colons, semicolons, commas and brackets. It's not your fault, anyway: everybody knows that primary schools in English-speaking countries are very poor about English grammar.

Back to Mega Man Zero 2 references, I think the outline could be:

  • Reploids names are French nouns; I think I was the first one who noticed it and wrote it somewhere on the web :-)
  • references to mythology;
  • references to other Mega Man video games;
  • Hidden Phantom? I missed it! Anyways, if it's in the same video game, it would be a secret instead of a trivia; the initial menu screen is a trivia, instead.

Well then, I'll proceed in a few days. Have a happy New Year :-) --Abacos (talk) 18:39, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

I apologize if I pointed out the use of punctuation in the wrong way; truth is, in December I had to correct loads of reports from my Irish students, and they were full of grammar mistakes: in that case, it was my duty to point out their errors. I'm sorry I got carried away here, I didn't mean any harm, and I should not bring home work problems nor vice versa. One of my students was dyslexic, too, and I apologized to her as well: I cannot imagine these things if I'm not told. By the way, my philosophy is always: "if you make a mistake, I tell you with no hard feelings, and if I make a mistake, please tell me with no hard feelings as well", or in other words "let's help each other towards improvement". --Abacos (talk) 20:00, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Cool! You should check out http://krita.org/ for digital painting. I haven't touched it myself, yet, but I hear it is better than GIMP for painting. I use GIMP and Photoshop for image manipulation. Photoshop is better, but I don't have as much experience with GIMP so it is hard to fully compare. They are very similar. Do you have a drawing tablet yet? You will need one for non-pixel art.
I really like your 11th doctor pixel trace; though I wish the sonic screwdriver wasn't covering up his left side.
I'll help keep SW alive while you're away =) --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:08, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, you can just reply here, if you want. I will see it. Note that the new notification system will tell people to look at a page if you just link to their user page, like User:Notmyhandle. I call that "pinging" them, like when you use a computer to ping to find out if they are available/online. "Poking" may make more sense since Facebook's popularity exploded. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:10, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Wasn't sure what to do when I posted since I've been out of practice. Thanks for the critique. I do appreciate it, you know. it helps me improve the quality of the art I post. There's actually a reason why Eleven is nudged against the Sonic. When I did that artwork in particular, it was for TARDIS Wiki's celebration of the 50th anniversary for DW. They mods requested artists to donate 11 different wordmark banners for all of the Doctors at the time (excluding newcomers War and 12) to display each month leading up to November 23. The design had to be a two-tone shade of blue and white minimalist design, and drawn on a restricted canvas size, so it turned out cramped like that :P And they eventually didn't need it, so I posted it on DeviantART for the heck of it so it would not go to waste. It wouldn't be too hard to move a few pixels around. I should update the work in the future. :) --|Superpowered Mario (talk) 06:36, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
You know what, he kind of looks like Phoenix Wright in his 8-bit/16-bit form. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 06:55, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Goodness, he does! Well, that has given me an idea for a Doctor "Objection" drawing. Maybe. It's really late and I'm not sure if it's the lack of sleep talking. Time to get some rest. -- |Superpowered Mario (talk) 07:07, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
