The Mario Stadium is a website which strives to give you the best information on the Mario Kart series. I (Goombs) hope that you enjoy the content on this website as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Welcome and thankyou for coming to the website. If it is your first time here let me remind you of the layout of Mario Stadium. You can access the different game sections by using the left-hand menu or clicking the small tabbed arrow or GAMES at the top of the page. Links are displayed in a different colour, so you know if the text displayed is a link like this section of text here. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
This website looks best in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It has been tested in other browsers and works fine. If you find an error (because I’m not perfect) please visit the contact page. It looks fine in all screen resolutions.
I was introduced to Mario Kart by my brother. Mario Stadium began long before it was put onto the Internet. After playing Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Legend of Zelda and Super Smash Bros repeatedly, I decided to create my own Nintendo website. This website was only created on my computer and was not available on the Internet. It was a very simple website, but the Mario Kart section seemed to grow and grow as my interest in the series grew futher.
Mario Stadium was officially founded on 8th March 2006. I originally intended to publish my Mario Kart website shortly after Mario Kart Double Dash was released. I made several layouts, however I decided not to publish the website. When Mario Kart DS was released I created a Mario Kart DS website on HostUltra, but due to its annoying pop-ups and other commitments, I had a long break. I then decided that I wanted to continue with it.
As I had a lot of commitments and was afraid of commiting to the site I decided to join forces with another. I assisted Fantanoice on her website called Dashing. I created a website layout for her, however got too much involved in the project and started adding all of the content myself. I then decided to create the website alone as I wanted it to represent my view on Mario Kart. I named the website Mario Stadium.
RNetwork hosted me for a while in 2006 – 2007 and Mario Stadium began to get a lot more visitors here. Unfortunately, after a while the server at RNetwork kept going down, meaning that Mario Stadium was down continuously every week. There server updates unfortunately ruined the PHP content management system. I tried to fix it, but RNetwork couldn’t help, so I decided to find a new webhost that did, and applied for SimGames.
Simgames were brilliant hosts, however due to malicious attackers the website was down several times. The website had to be put down in order to fix these problems, however the website was suspended for longer than expected. After some communication failures between me and the host we misunderstood each other. Troopa (friend and affiliate) kindly asked if I wanted hosting; I then decided to move hosts due to the long suspension.
After a couple of years I then decided to move to a paid host.
Relive the website layouts I created in the past:
- Special thanks goes to Troopa
- Nintendo for making the inspirative Mario Kart series
- Wikipedia has informed the website about a variety of unknown Mario Kart facts
- Veerle’s blog helped me develop my CSS skills
- Members that were there from the birth of this site deserve special mention: Raccoon, Neiltendo & The Revolution
- To you, for coming to this site.
