so i see more and more articles made for new professionals. now, unless they're well-known, how do we know if they're really pros or not? anyone can say, "yeah, i'm a pro." so we can't go by that. should we require some sort of link to an official tourney video or profile?

I agree, there's no way to verify. Also, how do you verify world records for events? Where does this information come from?--Richard 20:28, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, my suggestion is if they don't bring with them a list of tournaments entered and won, then assume they aren't.
Youtube videos, usually posted to Smashboards. --Sky (t | c | w) 22:30, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
Should these pages be deleted? I think yes but other users would die before this happened. So as a partial way of fixing this I proposed a separate name space for articles about "professionals", basically average joes, here: Forum:Smasher namespace. We're still holding a vote for it.

Silver was referring to people who claim they are professionals. Not to smashers in general. --Sky (t · c · w) 01:20, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
yeah, i meant the random newbie-like smasher articles i see. i figure if the person can't use proper terms, nor spell character names correctly, it's probably some 13-year-old with nothing better to do. i could be wrong, but it doesn't exactly scream "professional" when the pages are tagged as needing clean ups and expansion.
