Forums: Index Proposals SSBMRank/MPGR naming scheme
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.

On this wiki, we always place the year before the title on MPGR/SSBMRank articles. However, generally speaking, MPGR and SSBMRanks have been referred to on non-wiki articles, Twitter, reddit, and Smashboards, with the year after the title. So for example, MPGR 2019 instead of 2019 MPGR or SSBMRank 2015 instead of 2015 SSBMRank. Looking through the history of the rankings, I initially thought placing the year before the title was a carry over from 2013 SSBMRank, but even then that ranking was officially referred to as "SSBM 2013 Rank" or simply "SSBMRank". The only rankings that do officially place the year before the title are the Summer MPGRs, but even then this is inconsistent as they are referred also referred to MPGR Summer <year> too. I imagine it's merely interchangeable.

That said, I'd like to propose that we officially change the naming scheme from <year> SSBMRank/MPGR to SSBMRank/MPGR <year>. There's no real reason to use the former since it's unofficial, or at best, interchangeable such as in the Summer PRs. One might argue that we could simply go by their official titles, but this would cause a multitude of strange renames such as "SSBM 2013 Rank" for 2013 SSBMRank, "SSBM Rank Top 25" for Summer 2014 SSBMRank.

We should also apply this to SSBBRank as SSBBRank <year> seems to be the official naming scheme beginning with the 2016-2017 season. The 2014 season was seemingly retroactively given the unofficial title of 2014 SSBBRank. In terms of feasibility, PorpleBot has recently demonstrated that mass text replacement is indeed possible so I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to enact this change.
