Is "(lottery)", a Melee-specific term, the best disambiguation to have for this? Is there an alternative that covers both Melee and Brawl? - Reboot (talk) 23:53, 2 January 2011 (EST)

This may be bumping an old topic, but it's relevant. I'm thinking maybe Coins (Collectibles), or if we're to follow the Manual of Style accurately, Coin (Collectible). Coins are typically grouped though, like Hit points, so it's controversial. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 07:19, 6 August 2012 (EDT)

Move to Gold (collectable)[edit]

Since this is called Gold in Smash 4, I think the title should be adjusted accordingly. The article would have to be restructured a little, but I feel this is necessary anyway. —Fenhl 09:02, 13 February 2015 (EST) I agree- coins aren't the term is Smash 4 and it makes it harder to confuse it with Smash Coins and Bills.

Collectable to collectible[edit]

Before I looked it up, I didn't actually know collectable is an actual word. However, I still feel that the title of this article should be changed from Gold (collectable) to Gold (collectible). My reasoning is as follows:

  1. Collectible is used to describe objects which have an intrinsic value, whether monetary, historic, or otherwise, and thus warrant collecting, such as coins, paintings, stamps, Magic the Gathering cards, etc., while collectable is used to describe any object which can be collected, such as donations, car payments, candy wrappers, etc. Between the two, collectible is the more accurate term for this page, as the coins and gold attained in the games arguably have intrinsic value.
  2. Collectible is generally the more well-known term, per Google Ngrams.

That's my two cents (ha ha). Thoughts? -- Her Majesty, Queen Junko, 20:45, 10 June 2017 (EDT)

According to dictionary.com, they are just alternative spellings of the same word. However, I'm inclined to agree that collectible is the more commonly used spelling, so it should be used. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 20:52, 10 June 2017 (EDT)
Yeah, "collectable" is more commonly used when discussing sets and the like. Support. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 23:00, 10 June 2017 (EDT)

Moving this early tomorrow if no one else has anything to say. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:44, 16 June 2017 (EDT)

Digit grouping[edit]

For those who replaced the spaces with commas, please read wikipedia:Decimal mark#Digit grouping for why spaces are better. —Fenhl 06:15, 10 July 2017 (EDT)

What does the game use though? That's far more important. Toomai Glittershine ??? Le Grand Fromage 06:44, 10 July 2017 (EDT)
The Wii U PAL version does not use digit grouping at all. We should not copy this since it makes the numbers harder to read at a glance. —Fenhl 06:49, 10 July 2017 (EDT)
