OK all you editors, record how many character pages you have spiffed up here. I have finished Squirtle's attributes and plan to do the Trainers.--Oxico (talk) 16:55, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Sheik, Pikachu, and Diddy Kong are done! JtM =^] (talk) 16:57, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Before you all get excited, there's more to do than just making the attributes section prose. We also need to standardize the format and order between every page. Take a look at Meta Knight (SSBB) and Falco (SSBB) to see what I'm talking about. Specifically, the flowing sections should be deleted when making putting the page in the new format: Special Movements, Strategies and Tips, Sticker Strategies.

You can find "live" updates on your Character templates in mainspace on M.mendel/Attributes. The following info is as of this writing and does not update itself automatically:

The following character pages don't use the Infobox Character template:

I'm not sure how to handle the Fighting Alloy Team, Fighting Polygon Team and Fighting Wire Frames, Pikmin (species). Do you want pages for each character on each team?

The following pages should not be in Category:Characters because they aren't Characters, but about characters. They could be linked in the Category:Characters article, though:

Special Movements[edit]

I've been watching this project as it was implemented and mostly like what I see. What I don't understand is the elimination of the "Special Movements" sections without moving data to other places. The only pieces of these sections to survive were the taunts. Why remove victory poses, Wii Remote sounds, etc.? I'm hoping someone can give me an answer.

maybe cuz theyre not useful? JtM =^] (talk) 18:42, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

I disagree... I think these are useful pieces of data. Right now, I'm not sure they exist anywhere else on the wiki. I'm not saying we should resurrect that whole section on every character's page, but this info should show up somewhere, even if it's a page per category like On-screen appearance.

look dude, i didn't decide on this, the sysops did JtM =^] (talk) 18:57, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

We're in Phase one of the plan. Phase two will involve making sure each of those things get a page somewhere, just not on the fighter pages. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 19:00, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Gotcha. Thanks. Miles.oppenheimer (talk) 19:06, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
If you put these in the template call, even if the template does not display them, you can then extract them automatically (much like I do on my page). The presentation doesn't have to be tabular, either. --◄mendel► (talk) 22:14, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Still Missing Attributes[edit]

All of the following are still lacking an "attributes" section (I will be updating this):

*Donkey Kong (SSBB)

Just thought it a good idea to have a list to actively keep track of what still needs work Miles.oppenheimer (talk) 20:37, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
