Talk:List of tips (SSB4-Wii U)

Could we make subsections for tips with alike prefixes (i.e Bowser:Bowser Bomb and Bowser:Flying Slam)? It would make the page way easier to navigate and smaller if we removed those prefixes besides in the subsection titles. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 16:41, 10 May 2015 (EDT)

Bumping this. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 07:08, 14 May 2015 (EDT)
Seems like a good idea. I'm gonna go ahead and do it, in fact, along with adding links to the page. Zyrac (talk) 08:07, 14 May 2015 (EDT)
I don't know about this, because the TOC would end up being about as long as the page, and it'd be much trickier to actually edit. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Jiggy 09:00, 14 May 2015 (EDT)
I don't see how it would be hard to edit, and I think the TOC will look alright if we put it on the side. I'm already most of the way through doing it for the fighters section, anyway, so I might as well finish that and see what you think of it. Zyrac (talk) 09:20, 14 May 2015 (EDT)


Oppose, we could solve the problem with transclusion, and the page is intended to keep all tips in a single, well-organized article. Splitting the page defeats the purpose of that. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 19:16, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Oppose, for two main reasons. Number one, it's big, but it's all text, so it's not that heavy on load times, which is usually a major concern for longer pages. Number two, it's all text that's essentially fixed, so there's not really much of a need to edit it most of the time. Miles (talk) 19:35, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

I don't see how whether or not we have to update the page would really affect a split. I'm not in favor of it, I would just like to see the reasoning behind that logic. MegaTron1Decepticon.png 19:37, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
It boils down to the question of "what's wrong with a long page?" The two main answers are "it takes too long to load", which I addressed, and "it's unwieldy to edit", which was the other point I was making. In this article's case, neither one is much of a concern. Miles (talk) 20:14, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
Wouldn't "ctrl + f" remedy the ability to navigate the page while editing? I'm assuming a certain caliber of computer competence when it comes to editing here. MegaTron1Decepticon.png 22:29, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Oppose. There is a reason why the table of contents helps. Too big arguments is not valid enough to split this page. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Pikachu 21:11, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

The "too big arguments" would fall directly under the "unwieldy to edit" clause, so I'm not sure about how valid the validity of your claims about validity are. MegaTron1Decepticon.png 22:29, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Oppose per Miles and Nyargle. Serpent SKSig.png King 23:41, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Mega Man section[edit]

Why is there a Mega man section? Is it a typo, or does it have its own category. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 22:42, 2 June 2017 (EDT)

Since most of these tips are prefaced with "Mega Man:" in-game, giving them their own subsection is consistent with the way the page is organised overall. Zyrac sig.png Zyrac(talkcontribs) 11:29, 3 June 2017 (EDT)
