Concerning Project M articles[edit]

Hey, I saw you made a massive contribution to Ness' Project M article. I'd like to thank you for taking the initiative. People coming over to Smashwiki to help improve the Project M pages is a much better way of solving this issue than insulting our editors, which is what I have seen from a few people.

Anyway, I wanted to let you know that while your contribution to the article (specifically, the "Attributes" section) greatly expanded its scope, the way the information is now organized is not consistent with other character articles. As you can see here, here, here, or here, the way it works is that "Attributes" sections are not broken down into subsections for each of the different move types. I can't tell you why it's that way, but for the sake of consistency throughout the wiki, you should make sure that all future "Attributes" sections look like the examples I linked you to.

Another note for future reference: Names of games and video game franchises are always italicized. So rather than writing "Melee", you would write "Melee". Rather than "EarthBound", you would write "EarthBound".

Again, thanks for editing and we hope to see more from you! John John3637881 Signature.png HUAH! 15:22, 11 March 2017 (EST)

Sorry about any problems, I admit I edited the page on a whim after hearing that the articles needed expanding and feeling that I had knowledge of this specific character. I broke the section into subcategories because of what felt right due to the length, and only having a basic understanding of wiki style. I fully admit that my work needs proper editing, but feel that it is superior now due to having up to date information even if style is wrong. I see that ROB's article is very lacking and will likely do a similar wright up for it while incorporation the changes you have outlined. 24.51.248.130 17:14, 12 March 2017 (EDT)
Information that is inconsistent in terms of organization is definitely better than no information at all, so I'll give you that. Either you or someone else (possibly me) will go and fix Ness' page in due time. I'm glad to hear that you'll try and implement these changes in the future. Good work and good luck!
