I mean, he is a complete loser whose existence is just comedy fodder. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 23:40, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

In the hope of reaching a discreet understanding[edit]

We should not be inventing new meanings for old words. Let's not be hasty in our claims along the lines of "bias is OK if it is backed-up," an idea I see all too often on social media. That is contradicted by standard usage which calls bias: prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair. So, usually if you are considered biased in your opinions, the general assumption is you are probably being unfair. We should say a criticism is fair, not that a bias is OK. Ariel31459 (talk) 22:34, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

I don't really want to argue about bias against lazy people who just say an article is biased and leave. We get comment drops like this all the time, and it's that sort of dictionary definition of bias leading to "bias = bad" mentality in the first place. I'm not sure why you'd plop a distinction between "criticism" and "bias", bias always plays a hand in criticism, and we still go back to the point of sensible argument + sensible support. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 04:48, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Bias is very different from criticism. Criticism can be fair or unfair. Bias is usually assumed to be unfair except when referring to ones ideological bent. e.g. "She has a strong liberal (or conservative) bias, yet she still treats opponents fairly in debates." Even if an article is composed entirely of criticism, it can still be fair, even from the point of view of the person being criticized. Of course it is impossible to be completely fair at all times. Our articles are not supposed to be monuments to some current opinion. You should invite these critics to propose their improvements. Yes, it means extra trouble. That's the job. Ariel31459 (talk) 17:48, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
But bias and criticism aren't mutually exclusive concepts at all. Quite the opposite actually. Any opinion you spout is affected by bias. Criticism is essentially opinion; i.e. it's biased to begin with. Criticism can also be fair or unfair, has differing qualities. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 20:23, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

What's your favorite console?[edit]

I'm just going to guess it's the Nintendo Switch? Public School Girl (talk) 17:58, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Nah, I'm pretty sure it's the Sega Genesis. Because the GENESIS DOES WHAT NINTENDON'T. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 19:32, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Well the GameCube has a really nice library of games. Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, Mario Party 4, Mario Party 5, Mario Party 6, Mario Party 7, Mario Superstar Baseball, Mario Strikers, DDR: Mario Mix, SSX On Tour, NBA Street V3, Luigi's Mansion, and Super Smash Bros. Melee. Oh, and there the critically overrated Paper Mario and the rightfully maligned Super Mario Sunshine. But there's no other console that has this many Mario games in one spot. Game Cube has a nice controller too, but with crappy shoulder buttons and D pad. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 19:40, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Hold up, you don't like the Paper Mario series? Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 23:59, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
I haven't played a Paper Mario game, but I think Thousand-Year Door is overrated and has some stupid gameplay changes from the first one I don't like. I know this since my sister played it. I honestly should play first Paper Mario, though, and it's weird I don't play it since Mario's my favorite character. I also didn't play the Mario & Luigi games outside of Dream Team (though never finished Dream Team) even though it stars both my favorite characters. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 00:12, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
You should try Bowser's Inside Story and Superstar Saga from the M&L series. Those are two of my absolute favorite Mario games. Also, Super Paper Mario has a special place in my heart. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 00:26, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Bowser's Inside Story, I'm not terribly interested in but it might not be as cluttered with tutorials that Dream Team is. I know I played a little of Superstar Saga but never to any serious extend. Not interested in Super Paper Mario, that game is really divisive in the Mario fanbase, you know that? I just know it has boring gameplay and I... don't buy the story either. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 01:10, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Dream Team really doesn't display the best of the Mario & Luigi series. Trust me, the other two are much better. Also, Supra Pap Mayro gets a ton of nostalgia points from me, which is probably why I rank it so highly. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 01:12, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
I'm sure Superstar Saga is better than Dream Team, as it's not saddled with tutorials and hand-holding. It looks uglier though. I also don't remember Bros. Moves being fun to use but again, I was like 10 or something and I'm probably overexaggerating what they are great for. I just need to find motivation to play and sustain playing it. I did play Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance recently and while I enjoyed it, it's hard to me to sustain attention on it, probably because some levels were missing Dragon Coins, which I've replayed several times looking for all five Dragon Coins in one run, and I don't know if I should keep looking or just hit some switches and backtrack (ugh) and that sort of thing drives me crazy. My nostalgia games would be Dario Dart: Mubble Cash, Mario Power Pennis, Buper Bash Sros Seele, and the Pario Marties. I do love Super Mario 64 DS, Muper Sario Malaxy, Super Mario 3D Terraqueous Macrocosm, and Super Mario Odd Cs though. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 01:19, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Love me some Mayro Kratt, Galaxy, and 64DS. And Super Mario World on the GBA was my first ever real video game. I never got a Switch or WiiU, though, so I'm behind on the newer stuff. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 01:34, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Nice, it's a great game. I like it more than the original SNES one because Mario makes noises (and Mario doesn't make noises in the games until some Mario edutainment game in 1995 called Mario's FUNdamentals Stylized Amanita muscaria.svg that predates Super Mario 64 by a year, and that's if you don't count the infamous 1994 Hotel Mario (that uses a fake voice actor who doesn't sound anything like Mario) or a Mario pinball machine Stylized Amanita muscaria.svg that predates Mario's FUNdamentals. In short of Mario being outed as a sexual predator in the heels of #MeToo, I think I'll be a Mario fan-for-life. Oh my god I sound like a nerd.
Anyway you should try some Switch games like Super Mario Odyssey, and Super Mario Maker 2 is upcoming (though I'm not disgustingly interested in it). There's also Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with just over a whopping 70 playable characters and an unbelievable 103 stages (which are very unique from each other). Mayro Kratt 8 is really good, you should play it if u wuv Mario and friends kart racing. That is, if you can stand the roster having 4 Marios (Mario, Baby Mario, Metal Mario, Tanooki Mario), 4 Peachs (Peach, Baby Peach, Pink Gold Peach, Cat Peach), 2 Luigis (Luigi, Baby Luigi), 2 Daisies (Daisy, Baby Daisy), 2 Rosalinas (Rosalina, Baby Rosalina), 2 Bowsers (Bowser, Dry Bowser), and the seven Koopalings. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 01:54, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

Just a fair warning: be careful, because Artem S. Tashkinov‎‎ might decide to take you to "the court" for defamation. Although it's not been specified whether it will be a small claims court, a basketball court, or a food court. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 00:30, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

It's a basketball court I'm pretty sure. Stylized Amanita muscaria.svg Gimme a moment, I need to tap Ms to create a fiery special shot for our unsuspecting BoNBoN. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 00:50, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Heads-up re "interesting" profile page[edit]

Greetings, Mario, I am reporting from my janitorial duties in Room 202 and came across this profile in progress. Looks like possible concern trolling. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/User:Bkpsusmitaa Unsure how to handle? CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 02:19, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

This looks like an Islamophobic Hindu nationalist. Hooo boy. Badger's Law too violated. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 04:16, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
