Official SSB4 Tier List[edit]

So, should we add characters tier placings in their articles for SSB4? This is an odd time to make one in my opinion. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 20:58, 1 February 2016 (EST)

Do or DI[edit]

Should we mention Do or DI in the news template and create a page for it? I think it's too small for news but it could have a page since it has some good smashers like Nairo and Dabuz. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:54, 13 March 2016 (EDT)

It should have a page. Not sure about the news template, the tournament had a high skill density but local-level numbers. Thehard (talk)

Pi[edit]

It is no longer pi day. That is all. RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 13:21, 15 March 2016 (EDT)



What.....[edit]

You people are just crazy. Seriously you try to hard with the april fools. The econimy is still in existance. Smash 5 also doesnt exist yet. This is Pikifan4 from the Pikmin wikis. 64.235.154.34 12:20, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Smash 5[edit]

The news headlines don't mention that Shrek the ogre and the Incredible Hulk were yesterday (March 31st) announced for Smash 5 and that Sora from Kingdom Hearts was announced today. The Sackinator (talk) 12:32, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Yeah... let's not added that. :/ Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Metal Gear REX 12:34, 1 April 2016 (EDT)
I'd do the edit myself, but I don't think I can. Could we add Smash 5 as an article? The Sackinator (talk) 12:35, 1 April 2016 (EDT)
No, just because it's April Fool's day doesn't mean we can do whatever we want. That would take things too far. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 12:36, 1 April 2016 (EDT)
I think this is worth mentioning. AidanzapunkSig1.pngAidan, the Wandering Dragon WarriorAidanzapunkSig2.png 12:38, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

News story suggestion[edit]

Would this work?

[edit]

Am I the only one who actually likes this logo more than the real one? Can we keep it? Trainiax: Waluigi in Smash? Discuss it! 22:49, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Probably not unfortunately. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Keyboard 22:53, 1 April 2016 (EDT)
I could probably just upload it for me and add it to my custom color scheme. Trainiax: Waluigi in Smash? Discuss it! 23:07, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Errors in Frame Data[edit]

Increase exposure over Smashpedia (supersmashbros.wikia.com)?[edit]

I have a feeling this has been brought up before, but is there anything we can do to increase our exposure over Smashpedia (supersmashbros.wikia.com)? By a mere glance over both wikis it's obvious that the articles here on SmashWiki are of much higher quality and depth, yet Smashpedia is way over SmashWiki in terms of Google search rankings, enough so that I frequently see tournament commentators and SmashBoards users refer to that site instead of this one when they look up something. It's a little disheartening to see a "low-quality" site get used instead a higher quality one, not to mention that all the article improvements we make over here go to waste if fewer people ever see them. It's also clear in a few places that they've simply copied over whole articles or sections from us in an attempt to improve their quality. I'd ask to merge the two wikis, but from previous experience Wikia.com is highly reluctant to do so in general (as all wikis on their URL/name contribute to their advertising revenue). This is the next best thing I could think of. Zowayix (talk) 12:18, 26 June 2016 (EDT)

Make SmashBoards link to us again like they used to PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 12:22, 26 June 2016 (EDT)
Actually, I searched up 20 Smash Bros. Related things and 17 of them were ssbwiki as the top website PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 12:26, 26 June 2016 (EDT)

Name change[edit]

Can you change your name on here, like Super Mario Wiki? User: Mario Kart 7 Rules I'm working on it! (talk) 11:07, 20 March 2017 (EDT)

Why yes. MHStarCraft Mega Man X SNES sprite.png 11:09, 20 March 2017 (EDT)

Same IP info[edit]

If I have the same IP information as User: MasterTabuu then it's because we use two different computers, but we are in the same room. Aaron the Fearless Yoshi (talk) 19:45, 30 May 2017 (EDT)

Smashwiki.txt twitter?[edit]

So there's this Twitter account that seems to post some vandal edits made to the wiki. Not sure if this is a problem or not. I'll give you guys the link if needed. Penro17:06, 18 September 2017 (EDT)

It's cool, it's an account run by one of our contributors. :P Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 14:01, 17 September 2017 (EDT)

Tournament news[edit]

Main page with news section

I remember this being discussed, but I can't find where, so I tought I'd share my opinion here.
I suggest the News on the main page should have a section for the tournaments separate from the actual news for the games.
I'm not a big contributor to this Wiki, so take this as a reader's feedback: I think these news are pretty crappy. I find myself having to go to the Template:News page and checking its history to see if there is some news.
I mean there's a section for NIWA news and one for SSB news, why not having three sections? I personally don't care at all about tournaments, and I think a lot of people don't either, but beside this, tournament info is objectivelly different than actual game news. They're info on people playing the games, instead of about the games themselves.

I know it may seem like a moot point now that there hasn't been any game news, but I'd much rather have it stuck at old news until a new game is announced, or something else happens, since even "there's no news" is valuable information. The last game news there has been is Miiverse closing down, and that stayed on the main page for 10 days, before being pushed away by more tournament news. When the next SSB game is released, that news piece will too be obscured immediately by more tournament news. It's ridicolous.

Just my two cents.--Kombatgod (talk) 16:34, 2 January 2018 (EST)

Sorry for late reply. I think this discussion was had somewhere before, but I am not sure. I am not entirely opposed to this and I'm interested in hearing what other's think. Serpent SKSig.png King 18:21, 26 January 2018 (EST)
Sorry, I'm against this. There's hardly any other kind of news these days, so having a second news section would be unnecessary. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:40, 26 January 2018 (EST)
Aaaaand just as I thought. The news about A NEW FREAKING GAME being announced, just got swept away by more tournament results. I don't get it. Why dont you want to let people know about actual news and instead only care about tournament results? (which if you think about the meaning of the terms, technically are NOT news).--Kombatgod (talk) 13:12, 22 April 2018 (EDT)
Why is there a problem with month-old news being overtaken by day-old news? Toomai Glittershine ??? The Chilled 13:48, 22 April 2018 (EDT)
In what way are tournament results not news. Also now that I've seen what this looks like and have taken a few minutes to think about how this whole thing would run, I oppose on the grounds that we are essentially uprooting month old news and putting it at the top of the list. Smash news can be very quiet, and what we will have is a news section that will sit with the same 4 items for months at a time. Serpent SKSig.png King 13:58, 22 April 2018 (EDT)

Add the Newly Released Rankings to News[edit]

Once OrionRank 2017 and PMRank 2017 end, I think it'd be a good idea to link to all of them in the news section. It would include 64 League Rankings, 2017 SSBMRank, 2016-2017 SSBBRank, PMRank 2017, Panda Global Rankings v4, and OrionRank 2017. -Pokebub (talk) 02:36, 27 January 2018 (EST)

Featured article[edit]

How often does the featured article get changed? It seems to have been stuck on Pocket for months, and maybe could be swapped out on the first of every month or something? Data (talk) 20:34, 2 July 2018 (EDT)

I'm not sure which it is currently, but the FA gets changed usually every 3 or 6 months. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 00:23, 3 July 2018 (EDT)

About the to do list[edit]

On the To Do list there is pre-release images, why is that on the to do list? George Jones.jpg George Jones Walls Can Fall.jpg 21:19, 16 July 2018 (EDT)

Because they're tagged under the Category:Pre-release images, meaning that in the future (precisely in the game's release) they should be checked to see if whatever they each depict hasn't been changed considerably since the final release.
If yes, add it to the appropriate categories, and make sure that it's stated to be a beta image; if not, simply remove the pre-release template. Hence, it's on the to-do list. — NokiiSig.png Nokiiε (T·C·L) 23:04, 16 July 2018 (EDT)


Ultimate counter broken[edit]

The countdown to Ultimate thing is broken. It has said 115 for a few days now, and having memorized the days (112 days, as of right now) I know it's wrong. I thought maybe it had to be changed manually so I checked, but that isn't how it works. Is it broken? Or does someone who knows how it works (The person who made it maybe) know what's wrong? 72.133.91.93 10:55, 17 August 2018 (EDT)Blueflame105

Says 112 for me. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 19:39, 17 August 2018 (EDT)
Huh, it actually does say 115 for me.... - EndGenuity (talk) 19:42, 17 August 2018 (EDT)
It says 112 for me too. SSB4DarkSonicHead.pngSpeed48 19:45, 17 August 2018 (EDT)
It's probably caching; that said, we have a realtime JavaScript counter function, which I'll change this to instead. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Orchestral 19:53, 17 August 2018 (EDT)
