SmashPeter's back. His account is the last user account made. The username is very weird.--ShupaRoehTypicalGuy.png 13:52, 10 August 2012 (EDT)

I'm kinda new here, but I've been on Wikipedia, so I know wiki stuff-including sockpuppeting. The 2 accounts I suspect are Terrible is halloween and Terrible is thanksgiving. Reason: 1) the first 2 words of them are the same, 2) the last words of both are fall holidays, and 3) I noticed them both on a voting page; one was in the "support" section; the other was on the "comments" section but clearly showing support. What do you think about it? P.s. I don't have an account here. But ip address reporting is better than no reporting at all :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 07:58, 17 December 2013 (EST)

You've been slightly confused. Both those comments were made by the user Terrible, who likes to change his signature to match the current time of year. They are not separate accounts. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Irrepressible 09:53, 17 December 2013 (EST)


Could an administrator please delete the two Mario pictures I just uploaded? I was attempting to update Mario's artwork. The picture looks fine on Mariowiki but for some reason the picture is all blurry here. I'm sorry if I'm being a bother. ChuckNorris24.png 09:24, 1 September 2012 (EDT)

Instead of posting here, just add a deletion template to the images. In addition no deletion is necessary here, since any blurriness you were seeing was just a result of multiple things catching up to each other; uploading new versions of images can be slow to update correctly. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Golden 09:34, 1 September 2012 (EDT)
Oh, sorry. I didn't know. ChuckNorris24.png 10:09, 1 September 2012 (EDT)


This needs to be taken care of. Also, the pages need to be moved back to retain their edit history. Mousehunter321 (talk · contributions) 03:11, 5 October 2012 (EDT)


Just want to let you know there is another spam account. Brawls of fury (talk) 07:44, 3 December 2012 (EST)

This would have been okay in the vandals section instead of a new section; changed its title to reflect that. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Riotous 12:33, 3 December 2012 (EST)


I have a problem with bullies on this wiki. The users that are bullys are, OmegaTyrant, Dots the StarCraft (his current name), Bandit, ToastUltramum, SuPaRoah, and Troomi Glittershine. They kept on yelling at me for “commenting on an old or resolved talk pages” or “forgetting to sign my comments”. Can you make them stop?Sandvich9 (talk) 10:31, 23 December 2012 (EST)

Congratulations for "reporting bullies" to the admin noticeboard. In case you haven't taken the time to read actual policy (which seems likely, considering that you seem to blatantly ignore SW:SIGN and SW:TALK), you'd know that you most people you reported are either rollbackers or admins, so you just complained about this to the exact same people you are reporting. And just so you know, enforcing policy is not in any way "bullying." In addition, your spelling and grammar is simply atrocious. Air Conditioner AC.png is on an insane rampage 10:41, 23 December 2012 (EST)
This UltraMum isn't a bully, we're simply enforcing policies so you can become a better user. If you can't take advice, and are offended this easily, you shouldn't be here. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 10:43, 23 December 2012 (EST)

You seem to be confusing "bullies" with "the police". Toomai Glittershine ??? The Incomprehensible 10:50, 23 December 2012 (EST)


If you want to be left alone, then don't edit. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Chronicler 11:09, 23 December 2012 (EST)
(edit conflict) We're not "only targeting you." We simply inform any users who have been violating policy. The people here are "targeting you" because of your repeated policy violations. It doesn't matter who it is that is violating policy. Even I've been blocked once, and do you see me acting like a big baby about it and calling Toomai a bully? No. Air Conditioner AC.png Who are you? 11:12, 23 December 2012 (EST)

I'd also like to know if this wiki has an age limit. I might leave this wiki if you tell me your age. If all of your ages are over 20 I will leave. I will tell my age first. I'm 11. Don't think I'm trying to hack anybody's system because if you remember my apology, I said I was forgetful.Sandvich9 (talk) 11:20, 23 December 2012 (EST)

Because even when you forget, you can't just look at this page again. But regardless, we trust you wouldn't hack us, you couldn't exactly do that with just an age. This wiki has no age limit, we've had people younger than you make accounts here before. Likewise, we judge everyone similarly no matter what their age is. I happen to be 16. The others can tell you their ages themselves. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 11:24, 23 December 2012 (EST)
(edit conflict) This wiki has no age limit. For example, we have plenty of eleven-year-old users here. I myself happen to be fourteen. However, age is NOT in any way an excuse to violate policy, and if you think your age is going to give you an excuse to violate policy, you are completely incorrect. Air Conditioner AC.png Only a northern user. 11:26, 23 December 2012 (EST)
Well Sandvich9, maybe you can talk to users that are not bully about this, like me. The Awesome 11:38, 23 December 2012 (EST)

About this[edit]

The article needs to be moved to "Ledge-canceling" but I am not able to move it. Could an admin help? Thank you. F.T.B. (TALK) Zoso.svg 17:51, 1 March 2013 (EST)

You don't have to be an admin to move pages, you just need to become autoconfirmed by having your account active for more than four days, and achieving 10 edits. You should be posting this on the article's talk page, by the way. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 18:13, 1 March 2013 (EST)

Protection of future high-risk template[edit]

I made SSB4 (talkedithistory), analogous to SSB (talkedithistory), etc. If it's not too early to have it, it should be protected. - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 15:56, 11 June 2013 (EDT)

Move over redirect[edit]

Havok (company) should be moved to Havok, which is a redirect. - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 15:37, 23 June 2013 (EDT)

Could this also be done for moving On-Screen Appearance to On-screen appearance? DarkFox01DF01Sig.pnggoes on IRC. You should too. 17:34, 24 June 2013 (EDT)
Also, could this be done for QSM, which should be moved to Queensland Smash Mates?
In order to make this easier, could the ability to move pages over redirects be given to users of a certain status (e.g. rollback)? DarkFox01DF01Sig.pngEmergency maneuvers! Get outta there! 19:52, 2 November 2013 (EDT)
Not possible, as the ability is not atomic; it's based on the page deletion ability. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Chilled 22:27, 2 November 2013 (EDT)

Move pages with "(disambiguation)" to corresponding name without[edit]

Category talk:Disambiguation

There was a discussion on titling disambiguation pages, and it leaned towards the favourable convention being without the tag where not necessary. Would it be topical to move these pages back? - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 03:51, 16 July 2013 (EDT)

Move page.[edit]

Hammer Bro needs to be moved to over the redirect: Hammer Bro. because... well, because Mr Game & Watch and Super Smash Bros are redirects, right? So somebody should make the appropriate move for consistency. GreenMarioBrawlHead.png Green Mario 00:43, 17 February 2014 (EST)


Hi, I seem to be having some issues with this user, in particular with the Taj page. It's already bordered into an edit war, which is why I decided to post here now. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 17:57, 19 February 2014 (EST)

I feel another edit war brewing, this time on the Mango page. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 16:01, 27 February 2014 (EST)
Dude thats because he has played Brawl. And heres some footage:

And there. Also dont say he hasnt played it in a while because thats irrelevant. I mean Isai doesnt play Melee should would take away his mains. Or how bout Gimpy and Brawl? --TheLegendaryKRB (talk) 16:08, 27 February 2014 (EST)

Look at the dates of the videos you posted. Yeah they're totally recent videos. Yeah Mango has totally been playing Brawl recently. Mango never had any decent competitive Brawl results. On the other hand, Isai had many great Melee tournament results while he played, for example. You have been told countless times across edit summaries and your own talk page alike to stop repeatedly edit warring. Yet you take no notice at all. May I tell you yet again to read SW:1RV? Scr7Scr7 sig.png(talk · contribs) 16:12, 27 February 2014 (EST)
Isai was one of the most successful Melee players when he still played and Gimpyfish at least was involved with the Brawl community for quite some time. Mango was never particularly involved with the Brawl community, nor was he successful in that game to begin with. Very poor comparisons, honestly. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 16:15, 27 February 2014 (EST)
Those are literally videos from the week Brawl came out. I don't think he's picked it up since. Putting his "Brawl mains" on his page implies that he's ever played Brawl at a high level, which he hasn't. You need to listen to what people tell you instead of trying to force this kind of information on pages where it's unnecessary or misleading or flat-out wrong.
Ryxis (talk) 16:18, 27 February 2014 (EST)
And here we go again... another edit war is spurring on MooniniteLeader. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 22:12, 3 April 2014 (EDT)


His latest crop of images are clearly 4X3 images with hacked screen extensions and not in-game widescreen. The latter places character icons close to the edge of the screen, and his images keeps all of them in the 4X3 rectangle in the center. This user has been warned time and time again about this and has been told that should he act up again, he'd be permanently blocked. JamesJH-Heartless.pngHeart 22:50, 22 February 2014 (EST)

Smasher:CrappyCaptureDevice, is it safe to unprotect now?[edit]

Its been quite over a year since this has been protected, and the Curious vandal hasn't touched this page in over a year either. Can we remove the semi-protection now? Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Wolf 19:25, 2 March 2014 (EST)

I'll take that as a no then.... Besides, not like some IP or a new user going to edit that page as their first few edits anyways. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Achiever 15:56, 3 March 2014 (EST)

This should be on CCD's talk page, not here. Anyway, Curious hasn't been around for a while, and unless it's very important, a page shouldn't stay protected permanently. If Curious ever pops back up here it'll be reprotected immediately. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 16:13, 3 March 2014 (EST)

Sockpuppetry 2[edit]

Sonicman2004 and Sonicman200410. It's all he does right now, make new accounts i guess. 15:07, 14 March 2014 (EDT)

Okay, sorry, i thought it works the same way as the Vandal reports. 04:20, 15 March 2014 (EDT)

Vandals April 1 2014[edit]

There are a ton of users here who keep trolling, making disruptive posts, creating fake policies without proper approval, and adding false rumors about new characters for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U. There are users impersonating other users and real people and they could be offended! Some guy tried to make an improper "request for modship." Someone even changed the colors of the site to red and yellow and no one knows how to fix it! Can you please block all these people? Thank you! Awesome Cardinal 2000 20:39, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

Quick Question: Can I also report IRC #sw users on here too? Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Melee 18:51, 15 April 2014 (EDT)

Request page move...[edit]

of Wi-Fi Connection to and over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. As the article specifically describes the method of connecting to the internet via the Wii, the former is a bit of a misnomer.

Adding with that, it would prevent confusion over adding Smash 4 information to the page.

--- Monsieur Crow, Author Extraordinaire, 13:42, 16 April 2014 (EDT)

Probation request[edit]

I know I can't post on the probation request page and I question if I can legally do this but I would like to request Reshiram1105 to be put on probation. On his edit count, the user has made very little mainspace edits (with less than 10% of his total) and most were also reverted, and over 75% of his edits were on his userpage and user talk. If this was because he was doing multiple edits on a single page at one time then I'm sorry. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Metal Gear 15:40, 24 May 2014 (EDT)

Well if no one is going to anwser then I take that as a no. I'll simply ask an admin on IRC then. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Octorok 22:23, 24 May 2014 (EDT)
I realize that he was already blocked. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is a never lover boy 22:30, 24 May 2014 (EDT)
Yes, but I was questioning if a user can request another user for probation or only admins can decide. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Gangnum Style 00:02, 25 May 2014 (EDT)

Mobile site issues[edit]

I don't know if this is the right place to mention this, but today I tried accessing the site from my phone, and I started getting some nasty pop-ups every time I moved pages. Never happened before. FirstaLasto 11:22, 28 May 2014 (EDT)

It's probably best to report all ads-related problems directly to Porplemontage, he's the only one who can do anything about it. You'll probably need to specify exactly what the offending ads are. Also, make sure it's not a problem on your end first (virus etc). Toomai Glittershine ??? The Pan-Galactic 11:25, 28 May 2014 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure my Android doesn't have a virus, but I suppose I can verify. I'll let him know, thanks. FirstaLasto 11:27, 28 May 2014 (EDT)


Only mainspace contributions this user made were deleted, and their only other contributions were to their userpage and talk page, and wikistatus was yellow or red during those times. Part of their comment from their talk page had to be removed as it was a threat to delete comments from an administrator as spam. Berrenta (talk) 23:12, 11 June 2014 (EDT)

I'm keeping an eye on the situation. This user is out of second chances. Miles (talk) 23:15, 11 June 2014 (EDT)
Okay. Thanks for letting me know, and thanks for keeping an eye out. Berrenta (talk) 23:16, 11 June 2014 (EDT)

Deleting a revision[edit]

An anonymous user posted their email address in the talk page for Tier list. I just removed the email address, and I request that the revisions (mine and theirs) be deleted, for the safety of that user. Thank you. Berrenta (talk) 13:13, 14 June 2014 (EDT)

Actually, was removing the email a good idea? I'm now questioning that, since the user voluntarily gave it. However it was in a mainspace's talk page, so I had to. I could restore if needed. Furthermore, said user seems to be making a fuss about another user's choice of avatar as well. Those comments were removed as they were worded in an unacceptable manner, and are inappropriately placed. Can a staff member lead him to the right direction?
