Super Mario Boards
Super Mario Boards, alternatively known as MarioBoards, is a forum founded and owned by Porplemontage. The forum is hosted on SMF 2.0.4. It was created on October 15th, 2006, a few months after the Super Mario Wiki was founded.
It is an active forum, and most active users of the Super Mario Wiki can be found there. The forum allows discussion on specific topics, such as talking about the MarioWiki and MarioBoards, games in the Marioverse, online gaming, off-subject things, and so on. It also has a help desk and an awards section.
The stars next to a user's name on their profile increases after they make more posts. More notable users on the forum can easily be identified by their stars having custom colours, such as red for local and global moderators, green for wiki patrollers, admins, and bureaucrats, light blue for #mwchat operators and admins, dark blue for wiki proprietor, and so on. Also, users will have a specific ranking next to their name depending on how many posts they have made. A user can choose a custom title, personal text, and an avatar of their choice to go on their profile. Users can also customize their signature. More information can be found in the FAQ external link at the bottom of the page.
Many inactive staff members of the MarioWiki can still be found on the forums a lot. Some old users have come backed on to the forums on a few occasions.
