Talk:John

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

All of these johns are from this thread. Anyway, I think it would be better if we just had an explanation of what johns are and not an entire list. We don't really need dozens of examples, only a few. --YodaMasterZ 21:11, December 29, 2007 (EST)

Mild Delete: Is this page even necessary in the first place? --Posted by Pikamander2 (Talk) at 20:39, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

It is absolutely necessary. But it needs some serious clarification and expansion and should probably be moved to johns, as it is rarely used singularly. Maybe even to "no johns", or at least a mention of the phrase and its widespread use throughout competitive smash. --RJM Talk 03:12, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree with RJM the content of john is completely necessary. Maybe a name change or a merge, but not a deletion. No johns is how this phrase is most frequently used. Ryzol (talk) 07:12, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm also leaining towards delete or a merge to some kind of article with smashing phrases. Kperfekt722 (talk) 23:58, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Well...[edit]

Where I come from, there was a player called, "Jeff", who spammed Sonic's B move and never won, but often lied saying he did. He constantly gave excuses for losing, like his arm was broken, or he was eating something. One time he said that he couldn't play very well because his leg hurt. So, instead of "Jhons", we call them "Jeffs". —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cafinator (talkcontribs)

Where I'M from, it's just called bein' a baby who lost. I think the creator of this just wants some term he made up to be known. Delete please. Mike Tha Hero (talk) 22:16, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, but majority of Smashers involved in places like SWF and AiB know it as johns. Whether or not you've heard of the term is irrelevant. Shade487z 17:45, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Honestly...[edit]

Wouldn't we be better off going with "No Johns" as the article name instead of "John"? That's how it's usually used. Shade487z 04:30, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

By "John", they're giving the definition of the noun. "No Johns" could be a redirect though. Blue Ninjakoopa 15:46, 12 May 2009 (UTC)


Is this page even necessary?[edit]

Honestly, I dont think that the meme 'No Johns' is necessary here, leave that for the urban dictionary or other meme related wikis. This meme is pretty lame and stupid just like the term 'n00b'. It shouldn't get mixed up with Brawl. To be frank, I dont care if a person whinges or complains after they lose. They can complain all they want, but they can't change the outcome or anything. --JezzaRuIes (talk) 02:17, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

It's here because it started in the Smash community. I don't know where else it's used, but it's not necessarily a meme as much as it is slang within the community. Same thing with Space Animals. Shade487z 04:09, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

False article[edit]

sounds to me like this guy just went out and started making names up to make this article--Marqoose (talk) 20:44, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

New Term[edit]

If anyone asks, I'm the one who added to the page because this new term has been used on Brawl friend finder websites and AiB. Please don't erase it. - Woody72691 (talk) 00:31, 30 August 2009

If the section is deemed to be unnecessary, it will be removed from the article. If it's deemed to be necessary, it will stay. Saying "please don't erase it" doesn't help keep it there in any way. The information about it being used on friend finder websites and AiB is useful, but it should have gone into the Edit Summary when you added the section. PenguinofDeath 04:08, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

ok i dont really understand how to use Wiki's so sorry for the bad placement of my words.

Andalusia[edit]

Joshi (Andalusia) doesn't play anymore and actually nobody knows him. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 37.134.217.115 (talkcontribs) 14:29, 8 May 2018

First off, sign your comments (Use four tildes at the end of your comment: ~~~~). Second, we're going to need more to go on than a one-line assertion. Joshi may not play anymore but he has been known prior, and we work on a 'once notable, always notable' basis. See our notability policy for more details. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation.
