Talk:Off Wave

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

No such thing as too trivial. This is why broke off from Wikipedia in the first place. Thanos6 17:54, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Um, no. There are things that are too trivial and unimportant for their own page, like "Peach's Vegetable With the Stichface" or "Luigi's Misfiring Coin Jump Punch". FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 02:00, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
No. Those aren't too trivial either. Thanos6 04:20, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes, they are. Both articles are actual ones that have been deleted for being trivial. I personally deleted that turnip one twice. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 04:26, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
*shakes my head sadly* We move away from Wikipedia because they'd delete these things as too trivial...and then we start doing it here, too. And so the sins of one generation repeat themselves unto the next... Thanos6 05:06, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
There's a point where it is too trivial, when it would make more sense as a sentence or two on another page, otherwise people just waste their time moving around. Both examples above are good examples. -Ashran111 05:55, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
"Sins"? Hey, it's a game, chill out. If there's something that a good majority of smashers would say, "That's nice, but who gives a $#!%?" to, then it's a sign that it's too trivial. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 06:05, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
It may be a game, but it's also a symptom of the disease Wikipedia has infected most of its spinoffs with; we have infinite space on this wonderful series of tubes called the Internet, no reason to destroy information like the ones who burned the Library of Alexandria. Wookieepedia doesn't worry about triviality, for God's sake, they have an article on Jean-Luc Picard based on one tiny magazine article! We should follow their example.

I think that would be more applicable to wikis of individual universes involved in Brawl rather than this wiki with the exception of user-based or user discovered hacks since the series is pretty concrete. Enzeru 11:13, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
"Destroying information"??? Where is this coming from? We simply want to move the information to the related article. Do we really need a whole article for every single boss attack? Granted, Off Waves has storyline significance, but I see no reason we can't simply merge this entire article to be included in Tabuu's own page. - Gargomon251 14:42, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
I agree, and I think the same should be done for every playable characters' attacks. Enzeru 15:04, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, not the special attacks, they usually have more varied uses and special effects. But similar moves like all three of the Links' Bombs, All of Fox and Falco's similar specials, the Boomerangs, Falcon Punch and Warlock Punch, etc. could easily be put together as long as they are conceptually the same in effect. I think many moves have already done this. - Gargomon251 22:26, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
I remain neutral in this matter, but if you decide to merge it, I implore you to actually merge in the information, as supposed to a mere redirect, which is what Wikipedia does. In other words, I vote to keep the information somewhere. I don't care where. --Crazyswordsman 14:08, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
I think Crazyswordsman is right to say (or type) that the information should not just be redirectd,

and be put with the page itself. WiiMaster 21:27, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

This is why we have sections on pages. for example: This Off Waves article can just be put into a SECTION on the Tabuu page. As Falco would say: "Piece of cake". Masterman (talk) 19:02, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
