Help talk:FAQ

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

Changed "Smashwikipedian", since this isn't Smashwikipedia. Some good name? SmashWikier? SmashWikian? Or simply SmashWiki editor? – Smiddle / talk 16:26, January 7, 2007 (GMT)

Questions go here[edit]

I'm-a make a separate "guide to editing" page. MaskedMarth (t c) 17:39, January 31, 2007 (GMT)

cannot access preferences page?[edit]

i don't know about you guys, but i haven't been able to access the "my preferences" page for a while. it just leads to a page that says:

  • Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /home/smashwik/public_html/w/includes/Xml.php on line 302

anyone else having this issue? FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 16:40, December 5, 2007 (EST:)

Me too, some user have the same problem, but there are discussing it in other page of the wiki.--Fandangox 16:43, December 5, 2007 (EST)

Trophy Pages[edit]

I have 285 trophies, and I can do all the missing trophy pages, although it'll take awhile. But I have no reliable means of getting the pictures. Is there a site I can take them from or something? --T3h n00b 00:33, January 21, 2008 (EST)

making brawl stats?[edit]

Is there a set of rules for figuring out the percentage of times one character wins against another? (i.e. Metaknight v.s. Zelda/Sheik?) if so, what are they and where do i find them? i've been searching through the hel[ but found nothing so far. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.17.231.174 (talkcontribs) 23:44, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Smash Discovery?[edit]

If I think that I've discovered something new technique-wise, and have checked around to make sure it isn't already known, what should be my next course of action, make a YouTube video of it? Skitts (talk) 17:44, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

A question[edit]

What's the difference from a block and a lock on a user? AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 10:59, 21 May 2016 (EDT)

As far as I know, a lock isn't even a thing on this wiki. PenroImage.pngPenro 11:02, 21 May 2016 (EDT)

Then why does is say this: Userspace and forum edits are loosely restricted: warnings given for spending too much time in userspace/forums are given sooner, with locks and/or blocks following equally soon. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 12:23, 30 May 2016 (EDT)

That means probation. PenroImage.pngPenro 13:05, 30 May 2016 (EDT)

Im not sure.[edit]

Im not sure if the userbox for Bayonetta and Reggie would be appropriate for my userspace here's what they say, For Bayonetta:

BayonettaIcon(SSB4-U).png This user would mess with a witch, for the sake of Christianity.

for Reggie:

ReggieFils-AimeIcon.png This user is about kicking ass, making games, and meeting God.

Note: these aren't racial slurs, I don't do that. Also I customized them. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 17:47, 3 June 2016 (EDT)


This isn't the place for asking about your userboxes. If you need an opinion for your userpage, ask someone on their talk page. Or maybe in the Watercooler forum.

This is the place to ask anything about the Wiki including userspace. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 19:25, 3 June 2016 (EDT)

Um no. That would be Forum:Help desk and even there, you should keep your questions relevant to smashwiki (with minimal userspace related stuff). Serpent SKSig.png King 19:28, 3 June 2016 (EDT)
Technically speaking, the page itself states that "feel free to ask any questions on this article's talk page". Granted, it's heavily implied that the questions should be related to the Wiki itself, but it's not exactly idiot-proof. MegaTron1Decepticon.png 19:32, 3 June 2016 (EDT)
