From Custom Mario Kart: Double Dash Wiki!!
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Based off Tockdom:

The main purpose of the MKDD Modding Wiki is to catalog user-made content for Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as well as share information to aid with the MKDD modding process. Site rules are in place to ensure the accuracy of information, ease of use, and facilitate the work of the moderators. Even if you aren't a moderator, if you notice problems or rule violations, you should tell a moderator so that it can be resolved.


While the rules listed here may seem long, in essence, if you respect other people's work, use the "Show Preview" button, and have common sense you will not break any of them. Breaking most of these rules will not result in consequences unless they are continuously and egregiously broken. For any questions about the rules, you can reach out to a moderator (tarsa#8462 on discord) or post on this page's Talk/Discussion page.


  • “Content” refers to anything written in the wiki, uploaded to the wiki, or directly linked to the wiki. Files uploaded to the wiki and assets linked to in a page are all “content”, as is the actual text on a page.
  • All content should be related to Mario Kart: Double Dash!! or a mod of it in some reasonable way. This can include content relating to the vanilla copy of the game or user-made content.
  • No content should be pornographic, offensive or illegal. This will be strictly enforced.
    • This includes links to / direct uploads of ROMS.
    • We are not responsible for links or content posted by users of this website.
  • All content should be freely and easily accessible by members of the public. A download link that requires an account or password to access is not allowed.
  • Please read our published works policy.

Content Pages

  • Tutorials should only be created / edited with the permission of an administrator. This is to ensure accuracy and readability.
  • Custom track / character pages should use the most updated version of the templates provided. If a template is changed, users do not need to update already-created pages.
  • Pages should not be updated by the same user more than 2 times in a 15 min period - always use the “Show Preview” button to check your edit BEFORE saving.
    • Do not get into edit wars - settle any disputes about pages on your own or reach out to a moderator.
    • If you plan to update a lot of pages in a short period of time, please clear it with a moderator first.
  • Users may not blank nor delete pages - a moderator should be contacted for the deletion / removal of pages.
  • Content pages should only be changed by the original creator, someone with the permission of the original creator, or someone with a good reason for doing so.
    • Adding media, such as a relevant youtube video, is considered a legitimate reason.
    • An author(s) may choose to add a "Known Bugs" or similar section to a content page of a mod they made. Other users are permitted to edit the page to report bugs in this section unless otherwise stated. Users should remain respectful of the mod and author(s) when reporting bugs.
  • User pages should NOT be changed by anyone except for the user, someone with explicit permission of the user, or by a moderator solely for moderation reasons. If you believe that someone else's user page should be edited, please reach out to a moderator and the other user directly.

Uploaded Files / Linked Videos

  • Files uploaded from a vanilla copy of the game should retain their vanilla name, with a filesystem path if necessary.
  • All other files should have specific, descriptive titles. File names that are too generic may be taken down or renamed.
  • Image uploads should not be excessively large, meaning over 500 kilobytes. Images should be in .jpg format whenever possible.
    • Files uploaded from a vanilla copy of the game may be in .png format.
  • All videos embedded into pages should be relevant to the page.
  • Pages should not have excessive videos, but there is no hard limit.
  • Images and videos should be no more than 400px in width.
  • Do not upload pictures with no intent of using them in a page. Uploaded images that go unused for several days may be deleted by a moderator without warning.

Talk Pages

  • You may not remove, modify or censor any part of any talk page with the exception of correcting grammar to your comments or adding more content to your latest comment.
  • You must use a signature when writing a comment in any talk page. You can do so by typing four tildes at the end of your comment (Tarsa129 (talk) 18:05, 28 February 2021 (UTC)).
  • Talk pages must be kept organized. Replies to an existing comment should be written on the bottom of that comment with an indent, marked with an additional : at the start of the line.
  • Even though talk pages can be used to resolve conflicts, you should not start fights in there, nor insult other users or post spam and inappropriate content into them.


  • Use the YYYY-MM-DD everywhere for consistency
  • Version formats:
    • While there is no official version format, yours should be understandable to the average user.
    • All changes to mods should be logged in a version history table in each mod page
  • Each person should only have one user account
    • User name changes must go through Miraheze first, which limits how often they can be done. Once a Miraheze username is changed, all relevant pages will be changed by a moderator.
