Why are we including unofficial PRs? Unofficial as in OrionRank and EventHubs. CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 17:59, August 1, 2019 (EDT)

I added every global PR that I could find that had a page on the wiki. What makes those two less official than the others? If they are unofficial, we should delete those pages I think. Smore (talk) 18:02, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
By official, I mean the ones accepted for tournament rankings and the like. I believe unofficial PRs are fine since they do provide a different way of ranking, however I don't believe it should be included here since it seems like it's for the official PRs.

I still don't know why some are considered official and some not, but if that's the case, should we make a separate template for the unofficial ones? I'd still like a navigational template for those pages you see. Perhaps {{FanGlobalPR}} Smore (talk) 18:25, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
A better term would be "alternate PRs", but the point is that they're still notable within the community, but aren't as widely accepted or advertised as the others are, hence why those ones are considered the "official" PRs. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 18:29, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
Personally I don't think we should be including any alternate PRs. It's only adding more fluff to an already bloated template. As other people have mentioned, they are typically disregarded in favor of the more widely accepted ones. If we're going to vote on this, then I Support removing the alternate PRs.

Support, on the condition that the alternate PRs get their own separate template. Smore (talk) 23:39, August 1, 2019 (EDT)
Oppose. I don't see why they should be split up or have to use two templates, this is fine. --Meester Tweester (talk) 15:10, August 2, 2019 (EDT)
This doesn't separate official PRs from unofficial ones. This may cause people to confuse which one to use, and even use unofficial rankings instead of the official ones. CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 15:15, August 2, 2019 (EDT)
Maybe bold the official ones or have an asterisk on unofficial ones then? I don't think it's a big enough issue to split them.--Meester Tweester (talk) 20:32, August 4, 2019 (EDT)
I guess that's fine, but it does make the template look more complicated than it should be. CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 12:17, August 5, 2019 (EDT)

Wait a second, I wasn't proposing to split the template, I was just wondering why we had unofficial PRs on this template (and even I ended up getting caught into the split discussion). CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 12:18, August 5, 2019 (EDT)


Gonna go ahead and bump this. I believe this template should be split between official and non-official rankings. "Official" in this case referring to what the community accepts as the standard rankings (PGR, 64L, SSBMRank, SSBBRank, PMRank). While the others have been recognized by parts of the community, the five I've mentioned are pretty much always the ones used (or historically used as in SSBMRank's cased) to compare players or denote notability.
