This category[edit]

Though I haven't looked through all the articles in this category, I don't think we really need this category. As I said in the Talk:Super Mario World page, articles summarizing additions to the Smash universe (or information irrelevant to any of the Smash games) could easily be explained in the character/stage/item/universe page itself, with a link to an appropriate Wikipedia article when necessary. I'm still somewhat new to the wiki scene, and I do appreciate the necessity of explanations, but this just seems redundant. WarxePB 02:36, September 8, 2007 (EDT)

Try reading what Erik the Appreciator said. - Brawlmatt202 16:25, September 8, 2007 (EDT)

More specific categories for images[edit]

I think the images currently in this category could be split in more specific categories. The ones I'm thinking of, which would take care of most of the images, are:

  • Box art (possibly including promotional art like that DK picture)
  • Screenshots from non-Smash Bros. games

124 files are a decently but not obscenely high number, so this recategorization shouldn't take that long. Would it be worth it, though? Other ideas/comments/possible categories? --Menshay (talk) 14:47, 17 November 2015 (EST)

I can support this. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by a turkey! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 15:04, 17 November 2015 (EST)

Another note: technically the screenshots from other games could be put in the generic Category:Screenshots (one of them is already there), but I feel having a new Category:Screenshots (other games) would be tidier. I would appreciate more input before proceeding. -Menshay (talk) 06:08, 18 November 2015 (EST)

Why though? Serpent SKSig.png King 06:23, 18 November 2015 (EST)
Mainly because Smash game have their own category and, as this is a Smash wiki, I feel keeping other games in their own category would be tidier. Though yeah, putting everything in the main category should work equally well and wouldn't lead to an empty category. -Menshay (talk) 06:39, 18 November 2015 (EST)

Other thoughts? --Menshay (talk) 11:53, 13 December 2015 (EST)

Reprising this: with the new Origin images category, how worth it is having such files in this category as well? --Menshay (talk) 16:32, 15 January 2016 (EST)
