Now hang on a minute[edit]

I see you're making a ton of new templates. What exactly are they for? As they look right now they look kind of...obtrusive (for lack of a better word), compared to most similar templates we have.

Also, we have a template called {{rollover}}, so I'm not sure whether we need an "abbr" template. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Rainbow 20:05, 5 November 2013 (EST)

Sorry, didn't know that {{rollover}} existed as most wikis use {{Abbr}} such as Wikipedia. I'll switch to rollover and Abbr can be deleted. Setting up an example for the competitive smash scene to use for tournaments, if there is anything that is unecessary or duplicate, let me know AlexPenn (talk) 20:13, 5 November 2013 (EST)
Okay I see the example on your userpage and it looks pretty good. I'm not sold on using medal icons and background colours, and I personally disagree with the crew column having such a large prominence, but the overall table format and the idea of multiple "levels" of collapseness seems like a large visual improvement.

If you want to add graphics displaying the medals for tournament placings, I feel that's unnecessary and just adds an unnecessary graphic that takes up wasted space. Listing crews is also not needed as these can just be linked to on the smasher's page. Awesome Cardinal 2000 21:28, 5 November 2013 (EST)
