Welcome to the Custom Mario Kart Wiiki!


Thank you for joining the Custom Mario Kart Wiiki!

Before you get started, Click here to read the Rules page.

Keep the following in mind as you contribute to the site:

  • Make good edits. Always use the SHOW PREVIEW button to check your changes before you use the SAVE button. If you make a mistake, wait 15 minutes before saving the same page a third or fourth time in a row.
  • Saving lots of edits without PREVIEWING will get the moderators on your case, and can get you banned from the Wiiki.
  • If you plan to update a lot of pages in a short period of time, please clear it with a moderator first.
  • Write articles in third person (using words like he, she and they) instead of first person (I, me and we.) User pages and talk pages are the exceptions to this rule.
  • Use correct grammar, spelling and capitalization.
  • If someone posts on your talk page, please post a reply.
  • Sign all of your posts on talk pages with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • Don't delete anything from your talk page.
  • Use the Templates on the Main Page when making new articles for content such as Custom Tracks, Texture Hacks, Characters and other releases.
  • We encourage all content makers to create a User Link to put on their release pages and to add it to the Author List.

About correcting translations

Hi, I saw that you changed a few Dutch translations. Please keep in mind that in some cases it is not possible to use a literal translation for tracks and that a bit of creativity might be used to come up with a couple of existing translations. Personally I'm not the hugest fan of how you do some translations, but I'm fine with it because you're doing a great job filling the blanks, but in existing cases it's sometimes better to ask yourself the question if a correction is actually needed. 'Kleur Wonderland' sounds better than 'Kleuren Wonderland' for example, and also fits the English name better. In the past I have done a lot of translations as well, and in many cases I used the name in a different language as inspiration, since the English translation didn't sound great. In some cases that too leads to the Dutch name not entirely matching the literal English name, but it's done with a reason.

I'll stop trying to translate the track names literally and try to add some creativity in the mix. Your example above however, I think the second name fits better. MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 06:30, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Auto Patrol

Hi. Considering you have been active lately, I changed your group membership to "Auto Patrol." I think you would be a good fit for it. --KantoEpic (talk) 22:30, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Thank you very much! I'll try to improve the wiki every single day! MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 04:38, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

You are probably unaware of how auto patrolling works. If you see a red "!" near an edit, it has not been patrolled. To patrol it, check the revision and mark the edit as "patrolled." --KantoEpic (talk) 06:18, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't see red ! anywhere. Not on recent changes, or special logs. Can you make a picture or something so I can see where they should show up? I have to go to school now so I probably won't react to this for a couple of hours. MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 06:23, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
I patrolled every edit up until now. They show up on the Recent changes page. The closest thing I could find is this, since I already patrolled edits for tonight, but it works exactly the same for this website. --KantoEpic (talk) 06:33, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
I know why those exclamation marks don't show up at my account. I looked at the user group rights and you added me to the Auto_Patrol group. This means only my own edits are automatically auto patrolled. I can't patrol others edits. Moderators and higher ranks can mark others edits as auto patrolled. MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 13:39, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
I always thought the role meant something else. I will remove it from you in that case. --KantoEpic (talk) 14:54, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
I will re-add the role if you continue to make consistent edits and you are active. You are getting there. --KantoEpic (talk) 15:00, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Trial Moderator Role

Hi. Would you be up to be a trial moderator? Considering we could use a few more members on the Wiiki staff, I think you would be a decent candidate. --KantoEpic (talk) 06:27, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

I'd love to help out! MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 06:54, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
Alright. I have given you the role. If you continue to be active and make consistently good edits within one week from now, I will make you a moderator. --KantoEpic (talk) 14:17, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

RE: Shaun the Sheep

Rigging is the process of making the model use the bones from MKWii, so in that case you'd be correct with that. Trainiax/SwampyGator (talk) 16:09, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Ah, alright, thanks! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 16:15, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Introducing Users

Quick reminder that you do not / should not introduce the rules to a new user if they have not made a single edit on the Wiki yet.
You are free to do so after they have made an edit of course. I was told this by Kanto himself, so just try to remember.
-- Jasperr โ˜… Talk 11:26, 21 September 2020 (NZST)

Alright, I'll check next time if they have made any contributions. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 07:06, 21 October 2020 (UTC)


I have moved you up from a trial moderator to a moderator, as you continued to make good edits consistently and you are active. --KantoEpic (talk) 02:32, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ MarkAlbertsma03 (talk) 04:37, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
