Can't edit[edit]

I try to save my edits on Nakamaman, but it declines them. Why? 08:20, May 19, 2020 (EDT)

What exactly are you trying to change? It might be that you're adding phrases or links that are automatically considered spam. Alex the Weeb 08:23, May 19, 2020 (EDT)

I also removed unused paramets from infobox and added him to Category:Marth professionals (SSBM). 08:32, May 19, 2020 (EDT)
The problem might be the Twitch or YouTube links. What message is coming up when you try to save the edit? Also see if the edit will save without the links. Alex the Weeb 08:36, May 19, 2020 (EDT)
I removed links and it works now. And the message was something like "You can't do this edit as IP".
btw, can this be added back? It's pretty important info. 08:42, May 19, 2020 (EDT)
I'm assuming certain social media links can't be added by IPs. I could add them in for you if you want, but in future you may want to consider creating an account. Alex the Weeb 08:43, May 19, 2020 (EDT)

Kara canceling[edit]

You reverted my edit for no reason, I know this subject better and expect someone that revert my edit to verify his sources Eknoa (talk) 11:56, June 7, 2020 (EDT)

I’m sorry you feel that way, but I did in fact have a reason for reverting your edit, which I put in the edit summary. If you’re going to change established knowledge about the game, you’re going to need evidence that what you are claiming is correct, and simply claiming to be knowledgeable on the subject isn’t good enough. If you can provide evidence that the technique was possible prior to 7.0.0, then by all means do so, but until then, do not change the page to say that it was. And in future, be sure to check edit summaries if you don’t know why your edit was reverted. Alex the Weeb 12:17, June 7, 2020 (EDT)

Sorry if this sounded a bit harsh, I wrote it without reading

I read it on Twitter (there was a clip to prove it) but I don't find it, I will edit the page only after I find the post Eknoa (talk) 12:46, June 7, 2020 (EDT)

Rematch page[edit]

I saw your edit on the Rematch page and wanted to see if you wanted to work together on getting the technical stuff completed. I've been working on how battle power translates to SP gained (with 0 power) and so far I've worked out a formula for novice and advanced Spirits, just need to get ace and legend. --CanvasK (talk) 12:42, July 4, 2020 (EDT)

At the moment I'm working on beating every battle spiritless, which is gonna take a while, especially since with lockdown loosening where I live I have a few family visits coming up. But when I'm done with that, lemme know if there's anything else you need help with regarding rematch mode. Alex the Weeb 12:50, July 4, 2020 (EDT)
I've been wanting to do that too, but didn't want to burn myself out too soon. Since there are only so many different powers used for battles I went ahead and did the minimum, so all of the data for spiritless is collected and just needs to be analyzed. I'll let you know if I hit any walls with the formula stuff. --CanvasK (talk) 13:06, July 4, 2020 (EDT)
Update but not much progress. I started going various battles with different power levels and got this graph (all but green are ace, green is legend). It appears to be cubic but I haven't been able to fit a line to it. --CanvasK (talk) 16:51, July 7, 2020 (EDT)


On Discord, we had this discussion when Invy completed the page. Semi-spike angles are determined with a game-by-game basis and for Ultimate, we determined that 30 is the cut off. Not only that, but the Semi-spike (category) doesn't appear on any moveset page with an angle above 30. Hitbox Enthusiast Zeck (talk) 14:24, September 1, 2020 (EDT)

Well, first of all if the convention that was used for Smash 4 on the Wiki were to be changed for Ultimate, the discussion absolutely MUST take place on the Wiki. Secondly, articles not having the correct categories is a separate issue entirely. Finally, using such a cut off point means that 0˚ is not a semi-spike when 120 or more units of knockback are dealt, which I think we can all agree is a problem... Alex the Weeb 14:27, September 1, 2020 (EDT)
Problem is that the page doesn't include any move with angles between 31 and 35 right now and I'm not up to the task of scouring scripts to find those. Hitbox Enthusiast Zeck (talk) 14:29, September 1, 2020 (EDT)
Again, that's a separate issue entirely. If you want to make a discussion about using a different convention for Ultimate, then by all means do so, but I can't imagine you'd have much of a case as since at least Melee, 35˚ has always been the cutoff point, and there is no real reason why Ultimate should be any different from the 3 games that preceded it. Alex the Weeb 14:31, September 1, 2020 (EDT)
The main point was that the Sakurai angle is getting awfully close to 35 as games pass. It's 38 right now in Ultimate. Hitbox Enthusiast Zeck (talk) 14:33, September 1, 2020 (EDT)
Right...and in Brawl it was 37˚, but 35˚ was still the cutoff...anyway this is not the appropriate place to have the discussion. Alex the Weeb 14:35, September 1, 2020 (EDT)

Intangibility Trivia[edit]

Hello. I want to thank you for explaining how Bowser's "Helpless State Intangibility" works. Would it be alright if that information was put in a Trivia section on the "Intangibility" page? Also, if you don't want to do it, and if I end up doing it, is it alright that I give you the credit for discovering it? I'd feel terrible if I didn't.Thecontributor22 (talk) 00:45, September 4, 2020 (EDT)

I guess you could add it if you want. Don't worry about credit or anything. Alex the Weeb 04:17, September 4, 2020 (EDT)
Okay, then. Once again, thank you!

Thecontributor22 (talk) 11:31, September 4, 2020 (EDT)

Wario's Back Throw[edit]

Since only the Back throw has a video that has DI on it:, I look at most of the data from the 8.0 Knockback list found on Reddit (which are kill% tested on the middle of FD without DI unfortunately). As stated in the moveset section, Wario's Back throw is not a viable kill throw, it only KOs Mario at the edge of FD at 196% with DI. Not sure about Up air, that section of the document is currently blacked out for me for no reason idk why. Grand Dad.png NPM Morr!? NaughtyPigBoi.jpg 11:40, September 9, 2020 (EDT)

It is very misleading to only use DI data for 1 throw, just to make sure it fits a certain description. If you really want the data to incorporate DI, you should get it for all 3 throws. Alex the Weeb 11:42, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
OK, i see, there are literally omly 1 or 2 videos that shows DI, just found that Wario's Up air kills Mario at 170% on mid FD without DI. Also I still feel like since Wario's Back throw kills that late maybe change the wording to "only kills at really high percents" idk. Grand Dad.png NPM Morr!? NaughtyPigBoi.jpg 11:49, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
If you're referencing that other user's edit, 169% (the actual KO percent) from the ground for an up air is pretty good. Remember that up airs are designed to hit above the fighter, so you'll usually be netting KOs with them from noticeably higher than ground height. As for the back throw thing, the wording can be changed, but also bear in mind that base-heavy throws such as Wario's back throw benefit much more from rage than scale-heavy throws. For instance, with max range Wario's KOs at under 140% without DI, and even with DI it KOs at around 155%, many back throws can't even do that. Alex the Weeb 11:59, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
So probably change it to "kill at high percents with rage", also no I am not referencing the other user's edit, I found the kill percent to be 170% on the list myself, which I didn't say it is bad. Grand Dad.png NPM Morr!? NaughtyPigBoi.jpg 12:08, September 9, 2020 (EDT)

Could you help me?[edit]

Could you perhaps actually help me answer some of the questions instead of reverting me right off the bat? I am CERTAIN that the increased difficulty is a thing for sure, I just don't know exactly why or how much. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:51, September 26, 2020 (EDT)

I don't exactly know what you expect me to do here. I don't have access to any information that you don't have access to, and you yourself admitted that you weren't sure what's going on here. For all I know, the "increased difficulty" could just be confirmation bias... Alex the Weeb 18:54, September 26, 2020 (EDT)
That's what they said to me about the ledge planting too. I believed (and still do) that it was introduced in an update in Ultimate, but I was at least able to confirm that it was a change that occurred in game transition. That being said, you raise a good point, I shall start labbing this. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:58, September 26, 2020 (EDT)

literally a writing coach but ok[edit]

The comma there is entirely unnecessary. I will admit that my initial edit summary was misleading -- there is leeway with whether or not you are permitted to use a comma before a conjunction -- but my focus was to acknowledge the confusion between such a comma and the Oxford comma and I assumed further elaboration was unnecessary. Since I have been proven incorrect, I will now provide that elaboration.

In casual writing such as communication over a personal talk page, you could (but do not have to) include a comma before a conjunction if you would take a pause when saying it out loud. In professional writing such as, I don't know, an encyclopedia, you would only use a comma when absolutely necessary. However, even if we're pretending that an encyclopedia is casual, there would be no pause if I were to say the sentence "N's Castle is the base of operations for Team Plasma in Pokémon Black and White and the setting for the final storyline battles of the game." It's a single, coherent thought. There is no reason that a comma is desirable and certainly not necessary.

If you're going to be a smartass, maybe make sure you know who you're talking to first.

I can provide some resources on commas if you'd like to know more. TheNuttyOne 14:46, September 28, 2020 (EDT)

I don't exactly know what makes me a "smartass" in this situation, but ok. As far as your reverting is concerned however, you could have graduated at the top of your class in the Navy Seals, but that wouldn't change the fact that those commas are perfectly valid, and when at least 2 users believe they should stay there, and you are the only one who seems to think that they're a problem, then they really should be left as they are. Alex the Weeb 14:52, September 28, 2020 (EDT)


I probably would have reverted it anyway for being uncited, but it is quite possible that Mew's appearance odds were patched after the advent of the Sw/Sh DLC, as new creatures were added in when the DLC came about. It is likely to be patched up again when the second DLC run in Sw/Sh releases if this holds true. Perhaps some investigation is in order? Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 06:38, September 30, 2020 (EDT)


I was actually about to revert it again myself, but I do feel the need to point out that there is currently an unresolved discussion on Steve's page, which I linked to in my last edit summary. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:20, October 3, 2020 (EDT)

As the person who started that conversation, I'd consider it resolved by the presentation using gendered pronouns, and I updated the "gender" section on the page to reflect this. Otherwise, the consensus leans in favor of using "he" by default anyway. ~ Serena Strawberry (talk) 18:23, October 3, 2020 (EDT)

Steve's shield[edit]

In the Shield page, there is a section called Steve's shield. You did put in the move to summon the Crafting Table, but how about the Perfect Shield thing? Why are you removing that? Please let me know why. 19:39, October 6, 2020 (EDT)

I'm not Alex, but I can answer for him: the shield that Steve pulls out is an aesthetic detail, rather than actually doing something in-game. Although I will say, it should definitely be noted somewhere, if it isn't already... Aidan, the Spooky Rurouni 20:12, October 6, 2020 (EDT)
It's on Perfect shield. ~ Serena Strawberry (talk) 20:19, October 6, 2020 (EDT)

My edit to Arsène[edit]

You, uh, read the edit description, didn't you? Sincerely, Samuel the Banjo-Kazooie Boss. SamtheBKBossSIGN.png 15:26, November 16, 2020 (EST)

This: No, hang on. Read the trivia you're defending very closely. As stated in my edit description, it incorrectly compares Kazooie to Pikmin and Lumas, which are mere tools, or moveset elements, whilst Kazooie is something else entirely. She is not a "pivotal role" in "the entirety of a character's moveset," in reference to Banjo, of course. She isn't taking commands. She is a single, discrete character, and she and Banjo are acting independently of one another as fighters in and of themselves, even if she is the one doing most of the heavy lifting and they are KOd together (the latter also defends my "incomparable" point). On the flipside, Banjo isn't comparable to Olimar or Rosalina. Again, he's not giving commands, and he is anything but the main face of the duo, as some claim he is. Sincerely, Samuel the Banjo-Kazooie Boss. SamtheBKBossSIGN.png 17:53, November 16, 2020 (EST)
To chime in on this without furthering the edit war, I agree with Sam that Kazooie shouldn't be mentioned here; she's clearly a co-star with Banjo rather than a secondary companion, and like Arsène, she is an individual rather than an interchangeable species. ~ StrawberryChan (talk) 18:24, November 16, 2020 (EST)
I also have to agree that Kazooie is more of a co-star than just a companion like the others, it's more comparable to the Icies where Nana is her own individual instead of Popo's tool. Kazooie acts independently from Banjo, who doesn't even give commands like Rosalina and Olimar.
Also next time please take it to the talk page instead of edit warring. Thank you. Omegɑ Toɑd Toad.png 19:01, November 16, 2020 (EST)


Why are you blatantly violating SW:1RV? That's three reverts there. And other similar articles do make a note when a clone pair is nigh-identical, such as Marcina, Chroy, and Pits, so I don't get where you get that "we don't do this" here from, or why you are so hung up on omitting a fact from the article about the character's equivalence to each other. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 15:10, February 23, 2021 (EST)

None of those articles contain the redundant phrase "nigh-identical clones", or any variant thereof. They do go on to briefly elaborate on the level of cloning present (which also really shouldn't be there), but none of them include the redundancy in question. Disambig articles are supposed to be minimalistic, so really all of those pages should be cut down even more.
Furthermore, the wording you chose specifically sticks out like a sore thumb, and such fanciful wording is advised against in the manual of style, which recommends a semiformal style, and for good reason.
Regarding 1RV, I am well aware of the rule, but I was hardly left with much of a choice, seeing as how both you and Omega Toad also engaged in edit warring, in addition to re-introducing the aforementioned issues. Since the 1RV violation is the main reason for this message, I assume Omega Toad will be receiving a similar message? Alex the Weeb 15:21, February 23, 2021 (EST)
That point about semiformal writing suggests to not use slang or silly words. In what dimension is "nigh-identical" either of those things? Get off your high horse already. Aidan, the Lovely Rurouni 15:38, February 23, 2021 (EST)
I didn't say it was. I'm saying it's not semiformal in the slightest. Alex the Weeb 15:40, February 23, 2021 (EST)
The definition of a clone is to be identical; it's a duplicate, a mirror image. See Merriam-Webster's definition of the word. To call something "nigh-identical" is not redundant, nor is it not semiformal.
Furthermore, the level of cloning absolutely should be there, because to do otherwise insinuates that all clones are on the same level, which they are absolutely not. You can't sit here and tell me that Lucas and Richter are the same type of clone, especially when even the game itself isn't clear on what constitutes as a clone and what isn't a clone.
Like I said, get off your high horse already. Aidan, the Lovely Rurouni 15:48, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Right, so saying two fighters are both nearly identical and clones is redundant, by repetition. It's the equivalent of, for example, describing something as a "geriatric home for the elderly". I also really don't see how you could consider "nigh-identical" to be semiformal, when language like that is rare even in formal writing. Regarding the level of cloning, when did I say it shouldn't be there? We use the terms clone, semi-clone and pseudo-clone for a reason. If there was a disambig page for Ness and Lucas, we would say they're pseudo-clones. Lastly, could you please stop belittling me by claiming I'm on a high horse, simply because I'm pointing out the issues with the edit? Alex the Weeb 15:56, February 23, 2021 (EST)
"Regarding 1RV, I am well aware of the rule, but I was hardly left with much of a choice, seeing as how both you and Omega Toad also engaged in edit warring."
Listen to what you just said. You were ‘not left with a choice’ because Aidan and Omega were also edit warring. I’m sorry, but 1RV clearly states NOT to revert just because someone violated 1RV. So I don’t know how you possibly think you’re in the right by doing what you’re doing. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 16:18, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Why am I the only one getting flack for violating 1RV? And how exactly do you propose this issue should be resolved? I remove a redundant phrase from a disambig page which in addition is also worded in a way that doesn't conform to the writing style of the rest of the Wiki, and then a user violates 1RV to add it back. At this point, the only other option I have is to raise the issue on the disambig's talk page, which inevitably nobody will respond to, and thus due to a technicality, the user who originally violated 1RV not only gets away with it, but gets to keep their version of the article's wording in-tact, which they accomplished specifically by violating 1RV, as undoing it again would also be violating 1RV. There is no resolution to this situation that isn't inherently problematic.
So I decided to take the risk of violating 1RV myself, only for yet another user to come along and violate 1RV yet again. So I'm forced to repeat my actions. As a result of this, I have 3 separate users come to my talk page, talk down to and belittle me, and largely not attempt to actually resolve the issue, meanwhile the other users who violate 1RV get no such repercussions. And to make matters worse, all of this happens during one of the worst periods of my life, and I'm beginning to question if contributing to the Wiki is even worth it anymore, since no matter what I do, I'm always the bad guy. Alex the Weeb 16:37, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Alright here's the deal. Yes I am fully aware I may have broken 1RV as well, but listen: 3 types of clones exist, Richter (and Daisy as well) are special cases where they are 99.99% identical to their base fighters. Every other clone, including ones marked as full clones, have several distinguishing features that seperate them from their base fighters (eg Lucina has no tipper, Dr Mario has a different down B, aerial, and b throw), meanwhile Richter's only difference is holy water being aura instead of flame, everything else is completely identical.
The word clone refers to a copy of something, it's not redundant to call something "a nearly identical copy". I've called you out twice on edit warring before, after my revert you should've taken it to the talk page instead of reverting it. Toad.png Omegα Toαd, the Toαd Wαrrior. (BUP) 17:09, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Do with the article as you wish. This isn't a hill I'm willing to die on. I give up. I'm probably gonna take a break from the Wiki for a bit as well, unless something major comes up. Alex the Weeb 17:12, February 23, 2021 (EST)

"Why am I the only one getting flack for violating 1RV?"

Because you are the only one who did so, both me and Toad reverted once, while you reverted three times. After I first reverted you, at that point you take it to the talk page if you care enough about such minor wording.

"And how exactly do you propose this issue should be resolved?"

You know what a talk page is, use it.

"At this point, the only other option I have is to raise the issue on the disambig's talk page, which inevitably nobody will respond to"

If you think something is so minor that it is not worth bringing up on a talk page, then why get so pedantic and edit war over minor wording to begin with? And if you did raise it up on the talk page and no users actually respond to you, then your wording would be "consensus" by default and your version stays up, so again what's the issue?

"but gets to keep their version of the article's wording in-tact"

If you discussed something on the talkpage and no one refuted you there or otherwise consensus went with you, then no it wouldn't be. So again, what is the problem?

"So I decided to take the risk of violating 1RV myself, only for yet another user to come along and violate 1RV yet again. So I'm forced to repeat my actions"

Again you're the one in violation here, no one else reverted more than once, and I came here after I seen you reverted me twice and reverted Toad, without making a peep on the talk page. From what I seen and heard from others, you already have a history here of causing problems and ignoring SW:1RV. so you are on thin ice.

"And to make matters worse, all of this happens during one of the worst periods of my life"

We're all going through shit, being troubled does not give you any excuse to blatantly ignore policy. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 18:17, February 23, 2021 (EST)

[1] Alex the Weeb 18:19, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Yes that is my one revert, not a second or third as you did. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 18:21, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Then you do not understand 1RV. 1RV states "if a user reverts an edit, one should not revert their revert". Alex the Weeb 18:24, February 23, 2021 (EST)
Neither do you, because you've done that several times already. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:27, February 23, 2021 (EST)
With all due respect, what you have just said is neither relevant nor helpful. Omega Tyrant appears to misunderstand what 1RV states, which is what I have addressed here. Alex the Weeb 18:31, February 23, 2021 (EST)
This discussion clearly isn't going anywhere, it's clear you're trying to put the blame on us for reverting you rather than admitting you were the one who broke the policy in the first place. Rule is don't revert more than once, you reverted thrice while me and Tyrant reverted only once. Toad.png Omegα Toαd, the Toαd Wαrrior. (BUP) 18:35, February 23, 2021 (EST)
I am doing no such thing. Aside from the fact that I wasn't the first to violate the policy, I have never once denied that I violated it. Alex the Weeb 18:37, February 23, 2021 (EST)
It is very relevant, the fact you have an established history with ignoring the policy gives you a short leash here. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 18:40, February 23, 2021 (EST)
The name of the policy is "only revert once", I only reverted once, and at that point it should be clear to you to take it to the talk page if you care that much about it, not keep reverting back, including reverting another user that got involved. Excuses like "no one would respond" or "I'm having a hard time in my life" do not fly. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 18:40, February 23, 2021 (EST)

Black Vulpine: No, it isn't. Omega Tyrant claimed that he did not violate the policy, and I was explaining why he did. Bringing up that I also violated the policy is a tu quoque fallacy.

Omega Tyrant: Perhaps the policy has changed somewhat since you were last active, so let me explain. The number of times you hit the undo button is not what determines whether or not 1RV has been violated. Reverting an edit that was itself a revert, which both you and Omega Toad also did, is a violation of 1RV as well. But Omega Toad is correct that this discussion isn't going anywhere, which is why I would like to request that we end it here unless you have any other points you wish to bring up.Alex the Weeb 18:37, February 23, 2021 (EST)

"Omega Tyrant appears to misunderstand what 1RV states, which is what I have addressed here."
You appear to misunderstand that you are living in a glass house. Even if we were to accept the fact that Tyrant is breaking 1RV, you are clearly the more serious offender, and while you say you're not denying that you broke the policy, you also seem to be trying to downplay the fact that you are the more serious offender, as well as a serial offender of the policy. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:47, February 23, 2021 (EST)
I'm not downplaying anything. I was responding to a specific claim that Omega Tyrant had made, and you responded to my response with something that had nothing to do with the claim I was responding to. Right now, it seems as though you are simply trying to add kindling to a fire that doesn't need to burn any longer. I've made it clear that I am no longer willing to fight the edit in question, so Omega Tyrant is free to add it back. Once again, I request that if you do not have any other points to raise, then I would like to end this discussion so I can begin my hiatus. Alex the Weeb 18:54, February 23, 2021 (EST)


We have received a multitude of complaints about your behaviour from several users over the past few weeks/months. After reviewing them, the staff team as a whole have determined that your attitude with other editors is doing more harm to the wiki than your edits are doing good. This is your last warning to adjust yourself, or we shall be forced to start enacting blocks. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Cloronic 20:30, February 26, 2021 (EST)
