SmashWiki:Cleanup of the Notable Players sections
This is the project page for organizing the mass cleanup for the formerly known "Notable players" sections of the character articles, now known as the "Most historically significant players" sections. The proposal to fix them was discussed in detail here, and the new criteria being enforced is here.
The following must be done to the relevant section of every single character article:
- The sections must be renamed to "Most historically significant players".
- The following editing notice must be applied to the top of each of these sections: <!--This character has a ten player limit for this section. Before adding and/or removing a player, read these guidelines: https://www.ssbwiki.com/SmashWiki:Notability#%22Most_historically_significant_players%22_guidelines -->
- Obviously, if the character has a non-standard limit, that limit should be stated instead.
- Get rid of the "active" and "inactive" distinctions, they're irrelevant for the purposes of these sections.
- The following characters must have their sections combined: Daisy and Peach, Richter and Simon, Dark Samus and Samus, Pyra and Mythra, Dark Pit and Pit (in Smash 4), and Dark Pit and Pit (in Ultimate).
- Most importantly, these sections must be truncated down, both to adhere to the higher standard being enacted and the newly imposed player limits. The limit is ten players for each character, except for the following:
- Characters with a 20 player limit:
- Characters with a 15 player limit:
- Characters with a 5 player limit due to it not having been a year since their release:
- Characters that should not have a section at all, as it has been less than six months since their release:
- If you think any character should be given an increased limit, or one of the aforementioned characters should be given an even greater limit, it can be discussed on this project's talk page.
Character articles with completed sections
Since it will take a ton of unnecessary work to list every single character article right off the bat, instead each character will be listed whose "Most historically significant players" sections meet the new standards being imposed, organized by game and in alphabetical order. Any shoddily truncated section though can be rejected, so do not prune these sections without doing your due diligence.
