Rework[edit]

I feel like this page needs a major overhaul. Having every game in each section at once rather than separating them by region just makes it look extremely cluttered and potentially very confusing, as there's no way to tell how the order looks exactly in each region (and no, the "Sort ascending" button doesn't help matters, either, as).

I want to use the "tabber" template to separate the regions, but as far I'm aware, that template only works with images, so rip that idea. SmashTurtlesSig1.pngSuperSmashTurtles of the Turtle TribeSmashTurtlesSig2.png 07:05, May 19, 2020 (EDT)

I've tried the "tabber" template and you are correct, it won't work but for a different reason. I tried having each tab be its own table, but it was seeing class="wikitable sortable" as a parameter of "tabber" instead of being a part of the table.
However you can still use tabs by not using the template and instead using <div class="tabber"><div class="tabbertab" title="NA release">[table]</div><div blah blah etc.</div>. --CanvasK (talk) 23:03, May 20, 2020 (EDT)

I guess that's helpful enough.
Anyway, I made a draft that focuses on fixing this outdated page, so if you can help out, that would be appreciated.
The only things I can't find info of is the exact order for each region. I have asked WarioFan63 (who made an entire video about the Chronicle) if he had all three versions, but the only thing he said was that he was "gathering footage" from each version, so there's no confirmation if he does have all three regional versions. Perhaps I should ask him again if I want the full answer? SmashTurtlesSig1.pngSuperSmashTurtles of the Turtle TribeSmashTurtlesSig2.png 23:19, May 20, 2020 (EDT)
I can try to added the tabbers to the draft tomorrow. Don't be surprised if the byte size triples. WarioFan63 is the one who added most (if not all) of the information to the mainpage, so I imagine he has some source for each region whether it be himself or someone he knows. --CanvasK (talk) 23:40, May 20, 2020 (EDT)
I could ask him on his talk page, but considering he hasn't edited on the Wiki for more than a year, I'm honestly not sure if he even checks the Wiki these days, thus he probably wouldn't get a chance to read a message I would send him.
I'll give it a try anyway and if he doesn't respond in about a week, I'll try asking him again on his Chronicle video. SmashTurtlesSig1.pngSuperSmashTurtles of the Turtle TribeSmashTurtlesSig2.png 23:58, May 20, 2020 (EDT)
