"Here's the image"[edit]

So I decided to use both computers I have, and the image is still not showing up for me for either of them (all that's showing up is a gray box with a picture of what appears to be a mountain and the sun, which I assume is the error screen for Fandom's "image only" mode). SmashTurtlesSig1.pngSuperSmashTurtles of the Turtle TribeSmashTurtlesSig2.png 23:28, May 6, 2021 (EDT)

Try this instead. Aidan, the Rurouni 23:29, May 6, 2021 (EDT)
Just did, and for both ways I entered the link (one from simply clicking the link, and the other via the "highlight, then click on 'Go to link'" thing), all it's doing for me is redirecting to the just the Final Fantasy Wiki page for the FF7 remake. Is Fandom just broken right now or something? SmashTurtlesSig1.pngSuperSmashTurtles of the Turtle TribeSmashTurtlesSig2.png 23:37, May 6, 2021 (EDT)
Here's a link from Gematsu of the same image so you don't have to deal with Fandom's terrible gallery/image system. Fandom has acted this way for years and it makes checking dead links on the alt costume pages a pain. --CanvasK (talk) 23:44, May 6, 2021 (EDT)

Username change request.[edit]

I would like to change my Username from Pwwnd123 to Dr. Peach. I prefer to use that name more since I am transitioning over to that name since I created my Nookipedia account a few days ago. --Pwwnd123 (talk) 16:29, May 16, 2021 (EDT)

As per SW:NAMECHANGE, get back to me in a few days to confirm that you wanna go through with it. Aidan, the Rurouni 16:34, May 16, 2021 (EDT)
I feel great in changing my username. I am confirming in going through the name change process. --Pwwnd123 (talk) 15:48, May 18, 2021 (EDT)

Rename request[edit]

Hi, Aidan! I would like to be renamed Unfortified Castle. Simply put, I'm not a fan of the DarkFox01 name anymore, and I'd like a new name that isn't tied to any character.

Per the renaming policy, I'll check back in with you in a couple days to confirm the change. Thanks in advance! DarkFox01DF01Sig.pngA bomb has been planted at the base. 03:10, June 11, 2021 (EDT)

This is confirmation that I want to go through with the rename. DarkFox01 (for now) 00:37, June 14, 2021 (EDT)

Hi I would like to change my name to humbertosuazo26. I will come back in a few days for confirming the name change. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chape (talkcontribs) 20:47, June 22, 2021 (EDT)

I'd like to confirm my name change if you can :p —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chape (talkcontribs) 18:41, June 29, 2021 (EDT)

A question about the rename policy[edit]

Hi, I know this might be a dumb question, but I thought I might ask anyway.

So I want my username to be changed to The Jacketed Terrapin (I only settled on JacketedTerrapin cuz I was trying to find a way to keep "of the Turtle Tribe" in my signature while also making it the link to my contributions page, but no matter what, I could never fit it in and I decided to entirely drop the "of the Turtle Tribe" moniker), but I'm wondering if usernames with minor alterations still have to follow the username change policies (wait a few days later to confirm your new name and you can't request another username change for another 6 months). JacketTerraSig1.pngThe Jacketed TerrapinJacketTerraSig2.png 21:48, July 4, 2021 (EDT)

The point of the confirmation part of the policy is to prevent sudden cases of "actually, I don't like this name and I want it changed back", and sort of extends to the 6 month period part, in addition to that being to prevent people from taking up too many usernames. However, I think something minor like this would be a reasonable thing to make an exception for. That being said, in line with the spirit of the policy, I'll ask that you again reconfirm in a few days to make certain you're absolutely sure about the name change. Aidan, the Rurouni 18:02, July 5, 2021 (EDT)
Here to confirm. JacketTerraSig1.pngThe Jacketed TerrapinJacketTerraSig2.png 05:57, July 7, 2021 (EDT)

The logos you added to my sandbox[edit]

Hey, I noticed you added your logos for Ori and Celeste to my "Third-party universes that should be in Smash" sandbox. While I do appreciate you contributing to the page, I would rather have the file names of the logos match exactly how the others are named (i.e. File:Universe Name logo.filetype) and the images themselves be cropped so there isn't any unnecessary space (do keep in mind the stuff on that page is meant to go on the mainspace should the right time come).

Before doing that, though, I wanna ask you this, since you also have both of these logos on one of your own userpages: Would you be okay if your logos are altered to cater to my page's standards or would you rather have separate files of the logos uploaded instead? JacketTerraSig1.pngThe Jacketed TerrapinJacketTerraSig2.png 21:26, July 20, 2021 (EDT)

If you want to reupload the files and crop out the whitespace, be my guest, I won't stop you, lol. Aidan, the Rurouni 21:27, July 20, 2021 (EDT)
To clarify: these would be new files altogether, and not me changing the naming scheme of my files that I use elsewhere.
Also, as an aside, I specified "Matt Makes Games (now Extremely OK Games)" under Celeste because the game never updated its copyright—Maddy Thorson outright said that Celeste (and TowerFall, made by the same team) would still remain published under Matt Makes Games, despite the name change. Aidan, the Rurouni 21:34, July 20, 2021 (EDT)

Spirit Battle discussion[edit]

Hello, I wanted to talk with you regarding the reverting and excessive bloating of certain pages with spirit battles.

Namely, the reason I break them down the way I do because a lot of that stuff feels so bloated and I wanted the facts to be short and clear to the point. Autismo555 (talk) 10:11, January 16, 2022 (EST)

I do not find it to be excessive bloating. The points, as you write them, are short and abrupt, and do not cover information in a readable way. It seems I'm not the only one who has this opinion about your handling of the inspiration column, and I'm certainly not the only one who thought they should be changed. The point is to cover information and references made in the spirit battle, it isn't to go point by point. Obviously I won't lobby for a paragraph for each point, and sure, I'll admit that sometimes I can put a lot of information into something when a chunk of it could stand to not be there, but the point of a wiki is to make things easily readable to viewers.
Let's take some specific points from the Kingdom Hearts series' spirit battles, as examples. In the Riku spirit battle, the following was present before my edit:
Corrin and Riku are both grey-haired swordfighters.
Corrin's blue costume references the costume Riku wears while possessed by Ansem, Seeker of Darkness.
Disregarding the falseness of the second point (because that one's on me, I misremembered the chronology of events in Hollow Bastion), these two could easily be put into one single point that combined like information with like information, to form the following:
Corrin's grey hair and blue outfit represent Riku, with Corrin's blue costume referencing the costume Riku wears during his first fight in Hollow Bastion.
Additionally, moving along to the Axel spirit battle, the following was present before my edit:
Roy and Axel are both red-haired characters who use bladed weapons and fire-based attacks.
The stage references the computer room in Twilight Town where Roxas battles Axel in the opening of Kingdom Hearts II.
The stage transitions to the Blazing Chamber layout, referencing how Axel encircled the computer room with fire during his boss battle.
The second battle condition further references Axel's ability to use fire-based attacks.
Roy starting off with a Hothead references Axel's Chakrams, which he can infuse with his pyrokinesis.
Again, these points can be made more concise to combine like with like, especially since the last two are more related to the first point, and outright separated from it due to the stage stuff being in the middle. As such, I changed it to the following:
Roy and Axel are both red-haired characters who use bladed weapons and fire-based attacks. Roy starting off with a Hothead references Axel's Chakrams, which he can infuse with his pyrokinesis, and the second battle condition further references Axel's ability to use fire-based attacks.
The stage references the computer room in Twilight Town where Roxas battles Axel in the opening of Kingdom Hearts II. The stage transitions to the Blazing Chamber layout, referencing how Axel encircles the computer room with fire during his boss battle.
It overall makes it much more readable, and I'd hardly call two complete and fuller sentences "bloat", especially within the context of the spirit battles.
Finally, truth be told, a lot of the information that I cut out was speculation. I've told you about this before, but there was a lot of speculation that felt like way too big a stretch to be saying, especially on a mainspace article. We have policies in place that disallow for speculation altogether, so I'm not even sure why they were still put back up there (which you yourself reinserted onto the page). If you want specific examples on speculation that I cut, and why I cut it, see here.
You are free to make your case, but that is where I stand. Aidan, the Celebratory Rurouni 15:48, January 16, 2022 (EST)
Here's my case: I stand by using bulleted points to break down each spirit battle because the way you merged some of those points in one makes it feel so clumped up together, like in your edits of the Kingdom Hearts spirit battles, for example. Some of the inspiration points look so clumpy, it's almost hard to look at, which is why I feel compelled to break them down. I want to make those points as clear and concise as I can. If you'd ask me, I would show you what I'd do to break down the battle, but still keep faithful in your personal expectations on the layout of the inspirations columns. If not, then I'd go back to all of the Spirits pages where I listed the inspiration behind the spirit battle, blank out the inspiration columns, and allow you and anyone else to start over from scratch WITHOUT reverting it all.
Autismo555 (talk) 12:31, January 20, 2022 (EST)
I, again, fail to see how it's all clumped together. Covering the information in a concise way is a good thing to aim for, but separating everything into tiny little points makes it extremely unreadable. The way that I've tackled this is also progressively going through the information for a battle, but, again, combining like with like to make it more readable.
If we look at how I have Roxas set up currently:
"Roxas is Sora's Nobody in Kingdom Hearts II. He is able to dual-wield Keyblades, primarily using the combination of Oblivion and Oathkeeper, referenced here by Sora starting off with a Killing Edge."
This covers why Sora is used in the Roxas spirit battle, and why Sora has an additional weapon equipped alongside his own main weapon. It's much better than the very short and very abrupt "Sora is the origin of his Nobody, Roxas.", and the "Sora starting off with a Killing Edge references how Roxas dual-wields his Oathkeeper & Oblivion Keyblades." thrown in at the very end, completely separate from the first point.
"The overall battle represents Sora's battle with Roxas in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, where Sora meets with Roxas in The World That Never Was, and is pulled into battle at the Station of Serenity. Initially just a cutscene in Kingdom Hearts II, the scene was expanded upon in Final Mix to turn it into a fully-fledged boss battle."
This gives not only a bit of context to the entire spirit battle and to what it pays homage, but also (albeit subtly) explains why the stage used was chosen. It covers it in a much more concise way than the two separate points of "The stage references the Station of Serenity, the location of Roxas' boss battle in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix." and "The stage and music represent Roxas' Dive to the Heart station in Kingdom Hearts II."
The other two points were inserted by you, so I'm not gonna go into them.
I can get there being a difference of opinion in how this should be handled, no one's gonna think exactly the same as me and I'm not going to try and make you do that. But I asked for consensus, and I got it. Aidan, the Celebratory Rurouni 12:48, January 20, 2022 (EST)
Here's my response.
One, I'm wondering if you can get a consensus to change the layout to the previously proposed collapsible spirit battle inspirations, which cuts down the cramped feeling of the Spirits. I would go out and do this myself, but CanvasK is quite adamant about getting the consesus before the change is implemented.
Two, I would like you to review my changes and see if some of them are up to your expectations.

As I mentioned to you previously, I've considered adding a "{{hidden}}" template to the wiki that would replace the giant string of text that you'd have to put before hiding something. I might run it by some people, and see if I can get consensus on using it for the inspiration column. It'd look something like this:

As for the table itself, some of these I can agree with. I think I might, at some point, go into specific points (in another pastebin) to explain why I would go with my wording over yours, but some of these are at least agreeable upon. Aidan, the Celebratory Rurouni 13:07, January 20, 2022 (EST)
Oh no, I'm sorry, I meant for the proposed layout by Canvas K, which (IMO) should help with the spacing in the Spirits page. Autismo555 (talk) 13:13, January 20, 2022 (EST)
Sorry to butt in but, "...CanvasK is quite adamant about getting the consesus before the change is implemented." The forum that Aidan linked to above had 7 people in unanimous agreement to simply reword the spirit trivia from multiple bullets to fewer full sentences/paragraphs. The proposal on the trivia column on the disambig page was filled with multiple people proposing wildly different things, and many of them saw someone else's design and shoved their idea in it (as you can see by my userpage you linked). At most a single design got 2 people on board. That is not enough, in my opinion nor the policy's opinion, to fully go through with it. Additionally, again in the forum linked, Aidan and I agreed that something should be done with the overall format but that it was a separate monster that should be handled at another time. --CanvasK (talk) 13:15, January 20, 2022 (EST)

(Reset indent) Regardless of any consensus or lack thereof, I think I'll still put up how I think it should look on that particular page. Aidan, the Celebratory Rurouni 13:20, January 20, 2022 (EST)

Something I just noticed (or remembered, been a while) is that collapsible elements don't work on mobile, which is where the large amount of text is the biggest problem. A work-around would be to use max-height and overflow-y to limit the size and make a scrollbar, and I had used it in a template idea before (before I went back on it but for other reasons). Additionally, the collapsible elements leaves an empty button when dealing with rowspans. --CanvasK (talk) 13:35, January 20, 2022 (EST)
Is that dependent on the website's mobile view or the mobile phone itself? Because I can access the collapsible tables just fine. Autismo555 (talk) 13:40, January 20, 2022 (EST)
I checked on Android with Chrome and Firefox. Doesn't work on either. The MediaWiki manual also says it won't work on mobile. --CanvasK (talk) 13:43, January 20, 2022 (EST)

Hitbox images[edit]

I noticed the hitbox images for Sora's Thundaga and Blizzaga aren't here, but they are present on ultimateframedata.com. Would I upload the images from there, or is there another way to do it? Sigma San (talk) 13:30, March 19, 2022 (EDT)

Unless I'm mistaken, I'm fairly certain we get our images from there to begin with, so I don't see why there'd be a problem with you uploading the images from there. Aidan, the Rurouni 00:21, March 20, 2022 (EDT)
I believe Zeckemyro makes the images then uploads them to both here and UFD, instead of them being added to UFD then uploaded from there. --CanvasK (talk) 01:11, March 20, 2022 (EDT)

AFD layout[edit]

Hi, so the AFD layout is making browsing the Wiki extremely slow to the point of me getting "This page is unresponsive" messages constantly, especially on pages that require much more CPU power.

I would like to know if there is a way for me to completely disable this layout on my end. JacketTerraSig1.pngThe Jacketed TerrapinJacketTerraSig2.png 02:15, April 1, 2022 (EDT)

I'm gonna be honest, you're barking up the wrong tree. Let me pass this on to Toomai, though. Aidan, the Springing Rurouni 02:31, April 1, 2022 (EDT)
(edit conflict) There is an option in Preferences -> Gadgets that can turn the thing off I believe. Grand Dad.png NPM Morr!? A legit emoji in the Smash Asia server. 02:35, April 1, 2022 (EDT)
Indeed there is. Thanks so much for the help, NPM. JacketTerraSig1.pngThe Jacketed TerrapinJacketTerraSig2.png 02:41, April 1, 2022 (EDT)

April Fools day submission approval[edit]

Hi, can I have my AFD pages approved. ThegameandwatchIcon2.png Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 04:32, April 1, 2022 (EDT)

Deleted Miiverse images[edit]

On List of Director's Room Miiverse posts there are two files linked to in the notes for the November 19, 2014 post. The files, Masterpieces SSBWU JP1.jpg and Masterpieces SSBWU JP2.jpg, are currently deleted. Would it be possible to restore these? If not, I think I found them in the archives. --CanvasK (talk) 13:43, April 2, 2022 (EDT)

Delete Request[edit]

Hi, I would like you to delete my SmashWiki account, my userpage, and my talk page. Basically every single personal page I made for myself. Please respond. Daniel1204An icon for my signature.A signature head icon. (talk page) 14:19, April 19, 2022 (EDT)

Pretty sure they can delete your userpage but not your account or the talk page. Just mark speedy delete for your userspace pages. Grand Dad.png NPM Morr!? A legit emoji in the Smash Asia server. 14:22, April 19, 2022 (EDT)
So is my SmashWiki account is permanent? Daniel1204An icon for my signature.A signature head icon. (talk page) 14:29, April 19, 2022 (EDT)
Yes it basically is you can stop using it if you want to. Only your userspace contents can be deleted. Grand Dad.png NPM Morr!? A legit emoji in the Smash Asia server. 14:35, April 19, 2022 (EDT)
For what it's worth, bureaucrats DO have the power to delete accounts, but generally it's unlikely that they would do so. Alex the Weeb 15:02, April 19, 2022 (EDT)
Deleting users is only within the context of merging accounts. I don't think we have the ability to delete a user's account in a completely isolated way. Aidan, the Springing Rurouni 15:12, April 19, 2022 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure they can. It says so on SW:BCRAT, and I believe I've seen Toomai or someone mention it before. Not that it really matters anyway. Alex the Weeb 15:16, April 19, 2022 (EDT)
Right, I know the point you're referring to: "Can rename or merge and delete users." We have the ability to rename users, or merge accounts (which deletes one of the two accounts merged together). Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd be surprised if that's been a thing that I just haven't been aware about, because to my knowledge, no one has the ability to delete their own or another user's account.

A Request of the Renaming variety[edit]

Renaming my user account[edit]

Hello, I'd like to remember my account to "Master Purin". I'll come back in some days to confirm, per the rules. Fortenium (talk) 07:01, November 11, 2022 (EST)

Hi, I've given it some thought and would like to go through with the name change. Fortenium (talk) 08:47, January 7, 2023 (EST)

You might hold the record for the longest confirmation. Regardless, the name change has gone through. Aidan the Celebratory Gamer 14:45, January 7, 2023 (EST)

Dark Pit inspiration[edit]

Do you recall where you heard that Dark Pit was inspired by the Brawl costume? I can't find anything to back that up. --CanvasK (talk) 10:02, December 10, 2022 (EST)

Oof, that's a 7 year old edit, haha. It could very well have been me talking out of my ass—while it is likely that he came from that alt, since Sakurai directed both Brawl and Uprising (exactly that is listed on Dark Pit's general page), me having said that could have just been a combination of speculation/misinformation. Or there could be some source lying around the internet buried by all the results for Dark Pit's actual alternate costumes in Smash. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Aidan the Festive Gamer 15:49, December 10, 2022 (EST)
Given how long ago it was, at best I thought you'd have vague memories on if it was a video or article, that'd maybe narrow it down. The closest source I can find is from GameInformer about the Electroshock Arm. If neither of us can find a source, then I'll remove it from the pages I found it mentioned. --CanvasK (talk) 16:01, December 10, 2022 (EST)

Best base game character[edit]

I fully understand and agree with removing the trivia mentions for tier list placements such as "best third party" or "worst clone". However, there's one that I think is legitimately useful that I saw you remove from Sonic (SSBU): "best base game fighter". I honestly think this one is notable for two reasons: 1. Smash 4 dlc can no longer be bought, so if a player forgot or didn't want to buy Bayonetta they literally can't get her anymore unless they use somebody else's system, and 2. Players would have legitimate reason not to fork over 6 dollars to unlock a character or 25/30 for a pass, rather than simply preference if they were a clone or from a specific series. I would like to double check your opinion on listing the "best base game fighter" in case it also needs to be removed from Diddy Kong (SSB4), especially since that game is the one where dlc can no longer be bought. Unnamed anon (talk) 13:59, April 6, 2023 (EDT)

Whether or not a character has been bought by a particular player has little bearing on a character's existence in a game at all. Additionally, tournament setups must have the DLC downloaded in case someone happens to main a DLC character, meaning that, in terms of a tier list, the separation of "base game" and "downloadable" have little separation. Aidan the Springing Gamer 15:56, April 6, 2023 (EDT)
You raise some pretty good points, and I did remove the mention from the Diddy Kong page because of that. However, I'm starting to have second thoughts for that page, since Smash 4 is the game where you literally can't unlock Bayonetta anymore if you didn't already have her. I get that Smash 4's competitive scene is mostly dead, but would it still be worth mentioning the best base game character for games where DLC is literally no longer purchasable? I'll let it stay off of Sonic's page since Ultimate DLC is still purchasable. Unnamed anon (talk) 17:28, April 9, 2023 (EDT)
While it may be true that you can no longer (legally) download content for Smash 4, I still think that there's no reason to separate the base roster from the downloadable/complete roster, because again, strictly in terms of the competitive scene (regardless of whether it's alive or dead), the full roster is the only one that counts. Aidan the Springing Gamer 22:42, April 9, 2023 (EDT)

uh (origin images)[edit]

I know it currently isn't consistent, but we do have a bunch of characters with origin images in the origin section, and it does seem standard for other things to have an origin image in general, so why remove them? STM (t) 18:50, April 14, 2023 (EDT)

If you're referring to characters like Mario, who have artwork of their older appearances (which Smash took their designs from), then yes, those are relevant to Smash because it's a design that has appeared in the game. A simple screenshot from the game they appeared in (especially if it's the only game they've appeared in) doesn't add much to the wiki, and is highly unnecessary. Aidan the Springing Gamer 18:53, April 14, 2023 (EDT)
do we have this written down somewhere, or is it just word of mouth? because to people not in the know such as me it seems nitpicky/inconsistent STM (t) 19:14, April 14, 2023 (EDT)
I don't think what we're discussing is word for word written down anywhere (though that may change, now that I think about it); that said, we do nonetheless have an existing policy about uploading images that I personally think gets the point across anyway. Aidan the Springing Gamer 19:19, April 14, 2023 (EDT)

Rename request[edit]

Hello, I want to rename my name to Windy. I changed my name a long time ago, but still remained old name here, so I'm request it. Tempest Tales (talk) 04:17, May 24, 2023 (EDT)

As per SW:NAMECHANGE, get back to me in a few days to confirm that you wanna go through with it. Aidan the Gamer 11:21, May 24, 2023 (EDT)
Noting that this user just got blocked and lost their talk page privileges for a week, so it'll take longer than that until they can respond. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 00:58, May 25, 2023 (EDT)

A user named Windy does exist. I request for rename to WindyZ instead. Tempest Tales (talk) 00:15, July 3, 2023 (EDT)

Unfortunately, as per SW:NAMECHANGE, you must again get back to me in a few days to confirm for sure. Aidan the Gamer 00:21, July 3, 2023 (EDT)

I'm putting it off because of careful decision. Sorry. ADD: I'll settle for requested name now. Tempest Tales (talk) 11:0608, August 24, 2023 (EDT)

So you want WindyZ? I should note that, if you're only wanting to "settle", you'll have to wait six months before you can change it again as per SW:RENAME. Aidan the Gamer 11:17, August 24, 2023 (EDT)
It's been almost a decade since I changed my name somewhere else, so I think it's good to change. Tempest Tales (talk) 11:23, August 24, 2023 (EDT)
Apologies for how late this is, but there you go. Aidan the Gamer 17:20, August 24, 2023 (EDT)

Simon Belmont in an M-rated game[edit]

Despite what your research might suggest, Simon Belmont (or rather, an alternate universe version of him), does appear in an M-rated game, specifically in Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate: https://castlevania.fandom.com/wiki/Simon_Belmont_(Lords_of_Shadow)
I'll leave it up to you if you wanna count him or not, I just wanted to let you know.

That being said, I wouldn't mind just axing the "appears in an M-rated game/has an M-rated installment" trivia altogether. I just don't find it that interesting, especially when there're other rating boards that exist outside of ESRB (CERO, PEGI, Australian Classification Board, etc.). Yes, we're an English wiki, but that doesn't necessarily mean we should just focus on just one ratings board. JacketTerraSig1.pngThe Jacketed TerrapinJacketTerraSig2.png 13:13, August 7, 2023 (EDT)

Even though I personally would not count that, I can definitely agree that the point should be removed altogether. Aidan the Gamer 13:21, August 7, 2023 (EDT)
