Super Mario Boards
The Super Mario Wiki forum is hosted by Porplemontage and is administrated by him. There were no other admins until May 3, when Stooben Rooben, Ghost Jam and ChaosNinji were promoted from Global Moderator. Later, Glowsquid and ShyGuy27 was added to this list, although ChaosNinji resigned and Glowsquid eventually demoted himself, afterwards, MST3K was promoted to Administrator by Stooben Rooben.

Xzelion created the first forum for MWUserpedia, though it was very inactive and eventually died.
From 2007 through mid-2009, the Userpedia forum was hosted on Invisionfree, and was created by Xzelion, who was the first Forum Administrator. A trend had occurred where the Steward or unofficial leader of Userpedia was appointed to Administrator (starting with the creator Xzelion, moving forward to ChaosNinji, Ultima Bahamut, and Stooben Rooben). Throughout the years, the UP Forum had remained relatively active, more so during the Scribblewiki era of Userpedia (2008). However, after the Crash of Scribblewiki, forum activity started to go on a slow decline, and eventually was considered dead by many the next year.
Eventually, Stooben Rooben moved the forum to SMFforFree, where it gained a bit more activity. During the beginning of the SMFforFree Userpedia forum, Stooben had promoted Uniju and Z3r0 Tw0 to Global Moderator. Z3r0 Tw0 became inactive, and he was demoted and Super Mario Bros. was promoted in the same day. As time went on, the forum remained relatively active, mostly in the Forum Games board, and SMB and Marioguy1 were becoming the top posters in the forum, as well as Stooben Rooben, Black Hole Sun, and Uniju. Marioguy1 was eventually promoted to the ranking of Global Mod.
Time went on, and Stooben Rooben was, for the most part, retiring from Userpedia. When he promoted Scarecrow von Steuben as the new Steward of Userpedia, he created a new ranking on the forum that has the powers of a Global Moderator, yet has access to every board on the forum by default (Assistant Administrator) and gave it to him; he then promoted Uniju as the new Administrator, which broke the tradition of only Stewards being the Administrator of the forum. Scarecrow eventually left and Marioguy1 and SMB became the Asst. Admins of the forum, as well as My Bloody Valentine becoming a Global Moderator.
After a while, the Userpedia Forum moved again: this time, right on to Adriels itself. Most of the Forum staff returned immediately, with Super Mario Bros. becoming an Administrator of the forum along with Uniju, Marioguy1 became a Super Mod (as there was no Assistant Administrator rank), MBV resumed as a Super Mod, and Neurario was promoted to Super Mod for assisting in the setting up of the forum. Several months after, Stooben created an account and resumed his duties as an Administrator.
The Xephyr Board
- Main article: The Xephyr Board
The Xephyr Board is another forum in the extended MarioWikiverse. It was created by Stooben Rooben, who still owns and runs it to this day. The Xephyr Board is often considered a "retreat" of sorts by many members, as the rules on the forum are very relaxed. Xephyr is also the home to some users who have retired on the MarioWiki and Userpedia, such as Xpike and Volke . It is currently the most active user-created site, and even rivaled the MarioWiki Forum in activity at times.
