  • Hey, I found this video that will come in handy for the costumes page. I think we should always point out a color nonetheless as I noticed some rows are empty and don't specify one (maybe pointing them like yellow 1 and yellow 2?).

    • This honestly seems like an overly complicated process anyway. This is exactly the reason why I also considered dropping the color column altogether, save for the red, blue and green costumes for team battles, the game itself never acknowledges the color, we would be taking way too many liberties there.

      BTW, I rather announce retro costumes within the description column as opposed to the color column.

    • I guess the color costume is a bit arbitrary in itself, but I don’t know if getting rid of it altogether is the best way to go. It’s become less necessary now that we have a specific ordering column, but it also feels kind of wrong not having a section that actually describes what the costume itself is aside from what it’s referencing (or not referencing, leading to a completely blank description). Unless we want to just put "yellow clothes with red overalls" in the main description section, which honestly might be the better option, albeit the more cluttered one.

      Also, on the topic of team costumes, I agree that there's probably a better way to do it then saying "Used for green team" in the description but I think we can do better than just not describing an other color. Perhaps we can make another column with tiny boxes saying either R, B, or G, or perhaps we could color the boxes after the correct teams.

  • Alright. We really, really-really really need to figure out how to decide the language of move names. We were going with whatever we liked until just now, but Ryu (and Goku tbh) kinda throws stuff off. Could we reopen this issue yet again?

      Loading editor
    • Well I don't see how Ryu throws anything off, considering that everything's based on the official Smash games and we can kind of just copy over what they have.

      As for the rest of the fighters, I'm honestly not sure where to take things. The confirmed move names are pretty iffy in general, like with how Ichigo's Dojo names are Japanese and Luffy's Forums names are English.

  • "[...] Every character in classic mode can be encountered on any stage from their universes" Weird, I've been playing Event mode's All-Star Battles over and over again, and I'm only getting one stage for a given character. I think it's highly unlikely that it's just bad luck.

      Loading editor
    • Event mode's All-Star Battles only use one stage each, and they aren't the only single-player modes in the game where you encounter these characters. Classic mode is the primary solo mode and a character's whole universe of stagesis used.

      Also, I don't know when it was ever stated that single-player modes determine home stages anyways.

  • So next week is the annual Super Smash Con, I'm pretty sure you remember we always have a box in the main page that tells the current status of the event. I have created a more practical template that facilitates updating said status like we do every year. Please, refer to Template:Super Smash Con box to learn how to use it and feel free to ask me questions.

    • Ah, alright then. I'm hoping I'll be free enough those days to change the main page when I need to.

        Loading editor
    • I think I would have preferred if the box had an adjustment or two, McLeodGaming released the times for when each day will start and end so it seems a bit weird having "Watch live footage right now on Twitch" when it isn't actually live. Maybe if there was an additional setting for when the stream starts and ends, which would also help when the day's ended and people are looking for a time the next day.

    • I was actually going to add a {{{time}}} space, but I removed it last minute because, indeed, the time schedule wasn't known at the time. I guess it's required after all. If you wanna help me with the countdown, you may require to see this.

  • I'm pretty sure you're aware of the split and merge template. Now we're having formal discussion for those whom I would like you to take part of.

  • Those two pages are disambiguation pages.

    Their theme is pretty close from each other, and Mushroom links to Mushroom Kingdom. That's pretty weird, and I wanted to fix that, by merging them or something.

    I have no idea on how to do that, though. Think you could help me?

      Loading editor
    • Well there's five pages the Mushroom Kingdom links to, maybe you could have them listed underneath its bullet point on the Mushroom page? That would keep things from getting cluttered. 

      I was always considering expanding the Mushroom Kingdom page anyways, since it's also a location in A Super Mario World.

        Loading editor
    • But then they'd be pretty much the same page, no? That'd make the problem worse.

        Loading editor
    • Well, then we'd either have to get rid of the Mushroom Kindgom page or expand it into a non-disambiguition page

        Loading editor
    • I like the second idea.

  • Also, could you please restore this?

    Even though it might be somewhat low quality, that image is one of the only traces of FoS we have, y'know.

      Loading editor
    • Nah, this image is low quality to the point of not actually depicting anything. I assume it was corrupted or something over the course of time... I don't know, but there's nothing to it anymore.

      I'll restore it temporarily just so you can look at it, though.

  • I must say, I disagree with merging the planned move pages with their "replacement", especially if the replacement was replaced once again.

    I think we should either:

    1. Keep them. Maybe add more stuff related to the origin, or ask a dev about stuff we don't currently know.
    2. Make a planning page for every char with a planned move.
    3. Make one single planned page, along with a template for that, and drop all planned content there.
      Loading editor
    • Well I still see no reason to keep these pages. There's a pretty extensive surplus of moves like this with almost nothing to go off of but a picture (or even just a sprite) and a very brief description, and beyond that I feel like the fact they were never even programmed devalues them too much. I don't see how they're worth more than just "This character's special move was supposed to be this and it did this". There's something like that for pretty much every character in the game and I don't see us covering every single one of them with a page.

      For that reason, I do think it'd make the most sense to fit them into the trivia, like we did with Ōdama Rasengan on the Rasengan page, and we do something similar with every removed move's page as well.

      1. The origin shouldn't have to be the biggest source of info on the page, and expanding it would only exemplify how little there is to actually say about the move, not to mention the fact that there's often barely a move to connect it to. And even if we could pry info from devs, more detail doesn't change that we'd be making pages based on unrealized ideas for what's admittedly insignificant content.
      2. If anything that sounds even more unnecessary, especially with characters like Jigglypuff or Sonic where the only thing worth noting is a single special move or Final Smash.
      3. Pretty sure there's already a page for that. Not everything on the list needs to link to something, anyways.

    • I mean, "removed content" isn't the same as "planned content", and wasn't there an issue about "page is too big" and stuff of the sorts? Splitting the page would help, y'know.

        Loading editor
    • You’re right, it’s not “removed content”. It is, however, “unused content”, which the page also covers. On that front, “planned content” could very easily be mistaken for “confirmed content”, so I think calling it unused would make more sense.

      I wasn’t the one who decided it was too big of a page so I’m not really sure what to say about that.

    • Still though, I wouldn’t be opposed to you uploading the rest of the dojo images we’re missing, for the sake of archival.

  • I feel character pages like Kirby (Super Smash Flash 2) have names that are too long. We even made templates to shorten these names; they basically never get fully written due to their length, and this is affecting pages like Sora (Super Smash Flash 2)/Changelog (and Mr. Game & Watch (Super Smash Flash 2)/Standard attack, even though they will be gone sometime in the future. They aren't gone rn though so); those page names almost take up three lines in the title.

    Couldn't we shorten them up, making them like Kirby (SSF2) or something?

      Loading editor
    • Well I do agree with you that the name of the game does greatly extend the names of these pages. That said, I have to admit that I really don't see why the long names matter or why we should care about changing them, especially since, like you said, we've already invented templates to write them with anyways. Not that it isn't a change worth considering, but at least right now, I'm just not on board with it.

        Loading editor
    • It's due to formalities, abbreviations on titles didn't look right. Save for templates, I never recommended using abbreviations.
