Your resignation[edit]

Hi, LGM. I'm sorry to hear that you resigned as moderator, but I totally understand. You really did the yeo(wo)man's work as moderator, and I appreciate it. Bongolian (talk) 02:42, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm sorry you're a moderator down until November or December. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 02:49, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Do we have any more mod alternates? And if not, should we hold the elections earlier?Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 03:19, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
You did a good job as moderator. I really don't understand all this recent turmoil. I regret your resignation.Ariel31459 (talk) 03:26, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Ironically enough, it's RightyBlueLuigi (RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Results/Archive12), who is not related to LGM. RightyBlueLuigi has not edited since December 2019,[1] so perhaps it's moot. Bongolian (talk) 03:40, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
It's a true bummmer you've had to resign. Might you reconsider? ShabiDOO 07:59, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
You were the most active, and one of the best mods. Take the time you need, I hope you run again in November. — Dysk (contribs) 16:45, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
I'm very saddened by your resignation as well, but I can understand it. I can see how this ongoing flame war would be eating at you. I certainly couldn't handle it. But you were probably the mod who cared most about this wiki and tried to find solutions for our perennial problems. We may have disagreed occasionally on what those solutions should be, but at least you made the effort. I hope you'll consider running for the office again some day in the future. You'll definitely have my vote, just like you were my first choice to the board.Coigreach (talk) 17:07, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the support. You're correct that I was overwhelmed at the flame war. I regret to say I do not wish to run for moderator elections nor will I be as willing to even attend to site affairs such as policy votes and chicken coop discussion and such. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:40, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
You will still edit here?--HedvigsenSkreonk here 09:13, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Jesus historicity[edit]

I didn’t mean to disparage anybody in my edit. I understand the wiki’s editorial position on Jesus, but I don’t believe the facts support what the Wiki says regarding historical events that are pertinent to the Bible, and it isn’t consistent with common historical consensus. There are logical fallacies that I hope to address on other pages if you’ll give me the chance. To say that “all the evidence in the world” leaves much to be desired is false, and the accompanied evidence supposedly against Jesus is inaccurate. It is not disparaging to acknowledge that the information to the Wiki is based on a limited number of sources that aren’t consistent with “all the evidence” in the world. TheLeftIsIrrational (talk) 03:17, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

I'm not in a position to debate a complex topic, unfortunately. I just don't think the edit was appropriate to be present in the page compared to criticizing the article in the respective talk page. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:18, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

My unjust block[edit]

You blocked me yesterday, for "being a moron", for a period of 30 minutes. Why did you feel a need to block me? I merely exercised my right to free speech by asking you why you felt I deserved a face slap, unless of course you didn't feel I deserved it. In which case, I advised you to "fuck off". I didn't say anything that could amount to vile abuse, harassment, or trolling, so as far as I'm concerned I didn't actually do anything wrong. Kiko4564 (talk) 09:09, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Weren't you supposed to stop with the talkpage/concern trolling?[2] Great start! Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 09:14, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
Why does that matter? Bongolian is a moderator, he doesn't need you calling me a "troll" just because you think I am "trolling". Fuck off Knight Commander. Kiko4564 (talk) 09:17, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Wrongly blocked - again[edit]

Why did you feel a need to slap me in the face, and fucking block me a second time LGM? I didn't do anything wrong! Kiko4564 (talk) 19:01, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Regarding your post here:

I'm asking about a hypothetical situation which I feared might happen in the future, and not an actual situation here.

What in the world is this all about? You appear to be exhibiting troll behavior and annoying moderators and others here with completely trivial bullshit. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 19:08, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
I've had a similar issue with someone on Discord, and I feared that the issues might spill out onto the wiki. I can understand your point, I won't do that again. Kiko4564 (talk) 19:12, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Helena Bonham Carter[edit]

You placed Helena Bonham Carter in Sysop Revoke without discussion so I have reverted it. If you want HBC to remain in Sysop Revoke you are going to have to state your case to the mods for a vote. AceModerator 21:56, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Like I give a shit beyond responding to this comment. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 07:14, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Why are you going rogue? What's the matter with you? AceModerator 20:44, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Range Block[edit]

You range blocked 2001:8003::/32 this morning with the comment 'Excessively trolling talk pages'. As far as I can see there have only been three edits from within that range - all from the same IP on Saloon Bar. So I ask why the block? Gonna remove it soon unless you can give a reasonable explanation.Scream!! (talk) 17:27, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Putting aside the general issue of range blocks, /32 is on ipv6 the equivalent of blocking an ISP. Might want to lift that out of practical purposes. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 18:54, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
I've lifted it because of ISP tier blocking. IPv6 isn't the same as IPv4, read up on ranges before even attempting to range block IPv6. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 19:17, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks @Sirius.Scream!! (talk) 20:11, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
To be fully clear, I'm assuming good faith here. /32 on IPv4 is just a really inefficient way to block a single IP, it's just far wider on IPv6 due to the differences in range of allocatable numbers. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 20:13, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Don't just unilaterally apply range blocks. Same goes for HBC above - don't unilaterally sysop revoke without a vote. AceModerator 20:45, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Also, I'm sure a lot of people would have voted in support of a range block of that duration. I know I would have. I don't see why it had to be done unilaterally. And, had you gone through the right channels, you would have been notified BEFORE inadvertently blocking such a wide range--Hastur! (talk) 20:58, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Why did you join RationalWiki?[edit]

Nobs was active long before you showed up. RationalWiki was a center for free discourse long before you showed up. Wouldn't it make more sense for you to start your own site rather than try to colonize this one?--Hastur! (talk) 06:14, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Speaking for myself, I support the four purposes of Rationalwiki. Nobs, despite his claims, does not. Bongolian (talk) 07:15, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh yah? Which ones don't I support? And please be specific. nobsHell to the Thief! 07:31, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Hastur you keep saying "free discourse" but from several users you seem to defend, there is no discourse. Just shittery. You seem to equate "free shittery" with "free discourse" like they are the same thing which they are not. I know few forums which stand up for free discourse where they tolerate unlimited offensiveness and bullshit. Also...places slowly change and their tolerance for things like shittery at all costs also evolve. The "don't expect they way things have always been to change but go start your own thing "schtick" is tired shit too Hastur. As you have already seen what may have been your defense of assholes like Raven in the past don't seem so certain anymore. LGM probably joined because she though it was worth her time but was worn down by unexpected waves of shittery (correct me if I'm wrong LGM). While she may not be succesful in getting rid of a shitstirrer there is nothing wrong with explaining why she is no longer active because of said shitstirrer and hoping that Mr. shitstirrer might be asked by the community to take an extended break from his shitstirring.

Shabidoo understands better. It's nice to be validated by Ace, Hastur, but all he's validated is frankly a thin, naïve, selfish, stunted view of things that views general toxicity from people as just part of valued discourse and vital to community upkeep. He failed becoming moderator and he rather listen to Ace than the others that take issue with him. I don't want to be an active part of a community knowing that my complaints are taken not seriously and Robs asinine response to me is given more attention than me. I do not want any more responses to my talk page, but continue having fun with RobSmith, that's real important to you. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 15:51, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Hastur, this is a stupid point. Also you did this crap before when we were pushing out Ken for being a disruptive jackass. Assume good faith on behalf of other people, this is in their CS. Don't instigate poorly disguised "burn the witch" comments, it's not hard. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:23, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

If you're reading this, you will be relieved to know[edit]

That nobs has finally been banned by a 18:5 Coop vote. (But don't get any ideas though; it's not because you and Duce staked credible LANCB threats. That was poor form, and please don't let us catch you doing such again.)

Anywho, PLEASE COME BACK! Your LANCB is making Mario sad! Don't listen to tools like Hastur; he's just sulking and clutching his pearls because this wiki has changed with the times (ONOZ1111!!!oneoneelventy11one!!111one!!!11!!), he lost the mod election and failed to be a lawyer/apologist for Kenny, LT, GR, and now nobs. I think I speak for all the other major editors here when I say that we miss you and @DuceMoosolini, and hope to Goat that you both will someday return to our site; your renames when you were a mod were very funny and inspired quite a few of my own; indeed, every time I rename a foul, pooty account I think, "What would LGM do?" --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningPrototype lab 04:20, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Hello again[edit]

I was a bit surprised by your last edit (way more than the ones by two other users), you seemed to be a friendly, thoughtful person, and I don't think I've seen you swear before.

"That's a recurring pattern with UninspiringNickname. Take whatever criticism going on about the behavior, and she'll shape it up to be some sort of personal attack." I'm sorry, but I do get to set my boundaries. Telling me to "f*ck off and die", being guilt-tripped by someone's apparent suicidal ideation and other things of the sort is a conversation ender for me.

I even sent you a friendly email telling you I admired your modding and editing, hoping to have a non-hostile conversation, and accidentally letting you know what my private email address is in the process (my fault, should have either used a throwaway address, or not messaged you).

I'm sorry it's come to this. Hope we can have more enjoyable interactions in the future, if at all. But please don't assume, as a lot of people have in the past, that my preference for avoiding conflict is borne out of weakness. My ideas budge when confronted by facts, not disagreement. In any event, feel free to collapse or delete this post, it's your talkpage and I'll respect if you want me out of it. UninspiringNickname (talk) 01:00, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

I thought so too (as in I thought we're not going to have a hostile conversation), but I already said you're hurtful and I felt disrespected from that response I was given, even if I'm trying my hardest to be diplomatic. I don't like that feeling. I've already told you my pain and I was then started getting compared to and belittled. The fact is, you hurt me. I lost my sleep. I cried reading. What else do you want when it comes to emotional pain. I dislike the exclusionary mindset and you're not listening to me or respecting my feelings when I say how harmful it is. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 01:11, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
Again, I'm sorry you felt that way. I think you might have misinterpreted some of the things I said. I'm not trying to be diplomatic on my side, I just don't hate you, I can soak up to a generous limit (not sure if it's ultimately good or not). I too have my pain. I've lost the ability to cry a long time ago, I miss its cathartic effect. I don't know how open I am to talking about the specifics of my pain, it seems to just get me less-than-positive reactions, and maybe it's not that relevant anyway. I feel "jacka*se" was a bit much, though. I've never insulted you, and will never do so. I'll be open to talking about this a bit more, if you'd like. G'evening to you, I'm off to get some sleep. UninspiringNickname (talk) 03:14, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
I respect and value that you don't insult me. However I realize that words, even without insults, can still be harmful. Having lived through harmful effects of them. Calling you a jackass was not my best decision, though you can tell the hostility of my voice in other ways. I'm still having trouble processing what's going on, I don't believe I ultimately meant what I said, as my insults to other people tend to carry almost instant regret. Anyhow, a big source of my emotional pain is the pressure to justify it. I've harmed myself because I felt I deserved it and felt that I shouldn't be upset when my home was in a Los Angeles/Orange County suburb with great schools where the median value of a house was roughly $700,000 and people around America are living from foodstamps and from paycheck to paycheck and facing drugs, violence, and food anxiety. Millions of homeless people. And I'm just upset over nasty words my parents say to me. So self-harm was done, to justify my standing in society. But I'm trying to stop self-harm, and my therapists have told me I've been through a lot of pain, probably have been underestimating my own pain for my entire life and I'm constantly questioning myself because I've been told that I'm just being dramatic. I can't speak about your experience, but I'm sure they're valid and that's why safe spaces are so valuable. I want to figure out what we have in common and work from there rather than harm each other with the differences we have.
Anyhow, I don't think I've misinterpreted, that's the thing; I only wish you can self-reflect on possibly why my emotions are like this. There's no wrong answers but simply being thoughtful and exploring about this will definitely help the discourse. On my end, I suspected you believed that aces are minimizing the pain and lowering the bar. Clarification from you helps as I try very hard to explain myself, but you must understand my intent is not at all to harm you and it is not personal. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:45, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
It's 4am over here, way past my bedtime, and my reading comprehension is compromised. Please just tell me you're not doing self-harm or planning to do so, so I can go to sleep without worries. UninspiringNickname (talk) 03:54, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
No I'm not in a crisis right now. Worst that happened and is my crying last few nights ago. I'll be fine, I promise. Thank you and appreciate you for your concern. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:55, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

You should use an age template[edit]

You are probably not 25, now, and you probably don't want to update that each year. If you actually want to say how old you are, use the {{age|Y|M|D}} template. It will display an updated age as the years go by (although, I wouldn't include your actual birthday. You are allowed to fudge it around) eg. if you were born around 1999, you could say your are around 22 years old. — Unsigned, by: Bertrc / talk / contribs

Deletion of User talk:Shetland[edit]

Hi there LGM, I'm not sure that your deletion of this page was within the Community Standards, can you please explain why you deleted it? It does say in the Community Standards that as a talk pages should never be deleted, I'd imagine that this still applies even to a blocked user. Thanks. Harry Potter (talk) 19:37, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

It was just a welcome template from @Gale5050, who has a tendency to welcome people too soon. Nothing important was lost but you’re right there wasn’t any reason to delete it. Christopher (talk) 19:45, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
I believe it was protocol on a other wiki I went to delete talk pages of obvious ban evadinf socks, so I just delete these out of habit. I believe rationale includes that ban evading socks shouldn't get any content beyond user contributions. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:27, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
I did welcome them too soon but blanking was a better alternative also please dont ping me into these discussions.--Gale5050 (talk) 21:12, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
If it's blank, it might as well be a red link, no? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:14, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
It’s definitely not protocol on this wiki. Bad idea to make it a habit, a welcome template isn’t going to be missed by anyone but it leads to these conversations as it does technically break the CS. No need to blank or anything, just let the page be forgotten about. Christopher (talk) 22:50, 24 May 2021 (UTC)
I always felt the guidelines for the talk pages were intended for actual contributors, so I don't think deleting talk pages for obvious socks and trolls goes against the spirit of the guidelines (in fact, I believe deleting talk pages are in tandem with the enforcement aspect of deleting posts from obvious reregging trolls). Regardless, this isn't a hill to die on, so I'll let it be. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:50, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Special:Upload is the page you need to upload. You also can find it under the "tools" sidebar. There are several users around the world here, but my timezone is Pacific Standard Time. So it's 8:58 at the time of this posting. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:58, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks dude. I guess I'm not used to editing this wiki yet. I actually have experiance writing articles for other wiki's; unfortunently, it's not one that you may like. ED. I did write [the article on Thedonald.win] though, so if this gives me cred with you lefties, then ok. Also, I'd say just use whatever is used in the recent changes. It's gonna be hard to adapt to this style, but hey, I wanna se if I can redeme myself, so fuck it; take the shot and go ahead with it. Da Wyyzrd (Ohai)
If you want to share what you've written, unfortunately, I'm not comfortable having a link to ED on my talk page and I generally avoid following links there. You can perhaps share a bit of a screenshot so I can see it. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 04:12, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
OK yeah that makes sence. Da Wyyzrd (Ohai)
Shit, there's like a permission error thing for uploads. I promise I won't screw stuff up if you do give me those permissions. Da Wyyzrd (Ohai) 04:45 30 June 2021 (PST)
Probably just need autoconfirm. It generally takes a few days iirc. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 05:19, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
Got it. Da Wyyzrd (Ohai) 05:30 30 June 2021 (PST)

Thanks for the edits on vagina steaming[edit]

Thanks for making the language in Vagina steaming less cissexist. I appreciate it. :) Quantumgeek333 (talk) 23:43, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

Hey no problem. I say it's too, uh, cis normative if that's the right word. I also did edits on abortion too to be more inclusive. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:57, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

Marisa Tomei[edit]

I just learned today that "Marisa Tomei" is an anagram of "It's a me, Mario!" You probably knew this already, but now I desperately want to be able to have an animated Marisa Tomei, with or without moustache, as a playable Mario Kart character. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 19:05, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

And I'm days to todays year old learning about it. I'd like that character as Mario's mom or something. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:26, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
That'd be awesome, the Marii need more backstory. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 21:55, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

In case you need cheering up...[edit]

...I hope this does the trick. I think you're one of the best things that ever happened to Rational Wiki. Chin up! Spud (talk) 12:19, 18 August 2021 (UTC)
Thank you so much Spud. So sweet. I'm happy you know I love birds. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 14:36, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

Suggestions for improvement[edit]

Hey there, the mod elections are coming up in a few months, and I've been thinking about running again. This is probably a good time for me to listen to improvements on behavior I could try. I'd really like some constructive criticism, and it'll be more effective if they're civil. I felt I did receive some criticism on some aspects of me but if I could sum up what I can do better, this will be helpful. However I don't really want fights and whatnot here so keep snarky back and forth to a minimum, this includes defenses of me. I'll try to respond back but I do take in criticism even if it's from users I've butted heads against. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:28, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

Expressionism vs impressionism?[edit]

I remember, a while back, you giving a detailed analysis of colour in response to a post of mine concerning Van Gough and impressionism. Currently, expressionism and impressionism, and their abstract extensions, are two of my favourite styles of art. Do you have a preference when it comes to expressionism vs impressionism? I remember you mentioning in the Saloon that you’d studied art extensively in higher education, so I’m curious, and would be glad, to find out what your thoughts are on both these styles. LeucippusSalva veritate 23:33, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

I think both are valid ways to do art, but I have a preference for impressionism probably due to its closer focus on light studies, on observation, rather than being more abstract and emotions focused that expressionism is. I'm really fond of the fleeting effect impressionism invokes, which does reflect our own fleeting experiences, our memories, our perceptions. When I see footage of cameras from phones never being still, the images always swimming in constant noise and never quite remaining the same due to light never being constant as well as the technology capturing the light, impressionism does capture a moment of that. It kind of reminds me of the differences between realism and romanticism (while I don't mind the style and the dramatic emotions aspect of romanticism, I don't like some of theideology behind romanticism which relies on rose-tinted nostalgia, nationalism, mythology, AND likes to fixate on exotic; Albert Bierstadt's landscape paintings look fantastic but I believe they were used as a means to promote Manifest Destiny and exploit land in America, but I've seen arguments ALSO in favor of ecological conservation) in the decades before that. I like expressionism too for being willing to distort and invoke emotions rather than capture endless beauty and perfection and such. Both styles I do like for the lack of attempt to disguise brushstrokes and actually focus on brushstrokes as a means of expressing, like they're trying to break immersion on purpose to focus on the artifice of art. There was indeed philosophical movements in tandem with these art movements in Europe as well as technological advances that rendered it moot to replicate what you see to the best of the abilities AND helped encourage artists to paint outdoors, thanks to the tubes. You can't have impressionism or expressionism, or at least they'll be very very different, if we didn't have paint tubes or photography or advancements to understanding how light works. There's a rebellious streak to impressionism! It rejected the the traditional "salon" art and traditional ways of painting, which I personally find them to be lies and idealization in a way. It also reminds me of later movements that further challenge art conventions such as Duchamp's urinal or Christ submerged in urine (which, why affix disgust on what's ultimately an arbitrary piece of matter that just so happens to be body fluid? why not focus on color and value? which I think impressionism helped shift perception of art to color, value, shape, etc. rather than what subject matter we perceive). Anyway I'm kinda rambling at this point. Favorite impressionist pieces? Well, I tend to like the landscapes and architecture. I'm not too interested in human forms tbh. As for abstract art, I do like Kadinsky's geometrical work. Rothko's art is a bit baffling, but they have to be experienced irl for best effect (there's no way an image on a screen will replicate the effect of being at a museum and having a giant swath of solid painted color in front of you. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 01:47, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the effort you’ve put into your response. I really appreciate the time you’ve taken to compose this, and for the meticulous detail of your insights. I also, tend to have a preference for impressionism. I also like that it has more of a connection to science and observation than expressionism does. In addition, as you pointed out, impressionism captures the vivid texture of sensory experience i.e. the distinctive brushstrokes animate the picture; furthermore, the lack of distinctive boundaries, captures the seamlessness of experience. It’s fascinating, as you noted with the examples of “paint tubes” and “our developing understanding of the behaviour of light”, that without advances in science, art would be impoverished—in many ways, science makes art possible. As for the rebellious streak found in both impressionism and expressionism—I applaud it: strictures on art conventions, and conservatism regarding not altering existing practices, is incredibly damaging to most forms of human life—I say, to hell with your conventions and immutable concepts! LeucippusSapere aude 20:11, 21 September 2021 (UTC)
The trend to art has been slowly more and more democratizing too (again thanks to technology advances), and it being correlated to abstraction, I don't think is an accident. Most of older art the abstract art haters' standards are is just veneration of mythology and just an extension of rich people and what they want painted on a canvas, not really a reflection of the artist's viewpoints. Patronage, the rich people sponsoring art, is a thing of the past. Anyhow, I recall the argument that classical Greek art is just lies and I have to agree. By the way if you do like franker depictions of art and whatnot, I suggest you explore Realism (art movement)Wikipedia which work, like Impressionism, rejected Hierarchy of genresWikipedia (I would too) and artists like Gustave Courbet and Rosa Bonheur, though I feel the movement is later replaced by photography. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:58, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

just wondering...[edit]

...what the fuck is/are bibbangs? AMassiveGay (talk) 22:34, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

It's refers to a poor translation turned into a MarioWiki injoke. A guy who had a really poor grasp on Japanese tried to translate, or more accurately, "localize", into really awkward English. Given, the original Japanese is in kansai dialect iirc, so not the easiest thing to translate, but it's better translated as "You lot, today's prey is Mr. Mario: welcome him colorfully". Same guy was also responsible for this translation to "No one'll help u if sad!" and also translating "Kurosuke", a name for a crow-like enemy, to "Black Dude". --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:55, 21 September 2021 (UTC)
