Forums: Index Proposals Organization of Smash-related video presentations
Proposed.png This discussion is in regards to a proposed change on SmashWiki. The discussion must first meet with a consensus before it is implemented.

While contemplating what to title a hypothetical new page for the "character showcase + game update" videos (Joker and 3.0.0, Hero and 4.0.0, and Banjo & Kazooie and 5.0.0), I noticed that there were several videos covered on Nintendo Direct that weren't said to be related to the titular video series at all, like the 50-Fact Extravaganza, New Content Approaching, and Final Video Presentation. The non-indicative page name, along with the Ultimate character showcase & game update videos being nowhere on the site, made me think that the videos should be reorganized a bit.

So what have I come up with?

  • 1) Make the Nintendo Direct page a general information page about Directs, and divide Directs and other video presentations between ones related to Smash 4 and ones related to Ultimate, including the character presentation trailers for Ultimate. Make two pages for "Smash 4 Video Presentations" and "Smash Ultimate Video Presentations" (names pending), and link these on the Nintendo Direct information page.
  • 2) Make the Nintendo Direct page about only videos that are explicitly Directs of some kind and list all Directs there, and put the rest of the videos on a "Miscellaneous Video Presentations" page (or two), divided by Smash 4 or Smash Ultimate relevance.
  • 3) Just put all the videos on the existing Nintendo Direct page, ordered by release date.

Surprised this hasn’t been agreed yet. I personally the first works the best. RobbyB3ll4s (talk) 20:38, February 10, 2020 (EST)

Oh, so this is where that discussion went, I remember this being talked about on the Wiki Discord months ago. Voicing my support! --PlagueSigImage.pngPlague von KarmaPlagueSigImage.png 12:57, June 28, 2020 (EDT)
