Incompletion tags[edit]

Generally the {{incomplete}} tag is fine no matter what's missing. But if you want to bring specific attention to numerical data, don't use {{competitive expertise}}, but {{technical data}}. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Boss 17:53, 7 August 2015 (EDT)

Okay, I didn't know that. Thanks. DekZek (talk) 17:55, 7 August 2015 (EDT)

Signature pic[edit]

You need to reupload the picture you're using in your signature as a duplicate. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 12:53, 28 August 2015 (EDT)

How? I don't know how to upload pics, and using a tablet might complicate issues. Can you either teach me how to do this or do it yourself? DekZek ROBHeadWiiPM.png 13:12, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
Done. Just replace the current pic with Fike:Dekzeksig.png. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 13:19, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
Fike? Lol. I changed my sig with the file, though. Thanks, nutta. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 13:26, 28 August 2015 (EDT)
Lol, whoops. No problem! ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 13:27, 28 August 2015 (EDT)

Template:Delete vs. Template:D[edit]

A lot of the pages you're adding Template:Delete to right now actually deserve Template:D. If you add Template:Delete, it means a discussion is required before a deletion can be made to get community input. If you add Template:D, it means that the page is completely useless and definitely should not exist. In the case of unused images or duplicates or whatever, use Template:D. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 21:32, 29 August 2015 (EDT)

Thanks Nutta, so should we change all the templates? DekZek Dekzeksig.png 21:34, 29 August 2015 (EDT)

Just for future reference:[edit]

Template:Welcome is meant to be used as a "subst template" which basically means that if you were to type {{subst:welcome}}, it would sign the comment for you. SerpentKing (talk) 20:16, 30 August 2015 (EDT)

Okay. Thanks. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 20:17, 30 August 2015 (EDT)

Figured I'd let you know this...[edit]

You're tagging a lot of unused pics for speedy deletion; that's fine and all, and that's not what I'm here for. I'm here because you're questioning what's being leaked in pictures like this.

This is why it's a leak. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 12:20, 2 September 2015 (EDT)

Oops. Thanks for the notice. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 12:22, 2 September 2015 (EDT)
Now, with that being said, there's a link to that image on the Leak page, so you can really go mark any file that's a duplicate of that. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 12:25, 2 September 2015 (EDT)

I don't know if you noticed[edit]

But I uploaded File:DekZek-sig.png like you wanted. SerpentKing (talk) 23:33, 8 September 2015 (EDT)

Quick question.[edit]

Do you mind if you add this quote into your quotes subpage? "Jigglypuff is a Hungry box waiting to be fed." (also, cite me.) (I'm not wanting more attention BTW) INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 14:42, 25 September 2015 (EDT)

You don't have to add the quote. ;-) INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 14:44, 25 September 2015 (EDT)
Feel free to put it in. Put it in the quotes from other users area. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 16:24, 25 September 2015 (EDT)
I am scared I might violate a policy related to not editing other's userspaces... INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 16:34, 25 September 2015 (EDT)
NVM, I'm going for it. I hope I don't violate any policies while doing this! INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 16:39, 25 September 2015 (EDT)

I took the liberty of uploading your Halloween sig pic for you...[edit]

...since I saw you ask Nyargle for it. So here. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 22:44, 29 September 2015 (EDT)

As a thing of honour...[edit]

Nice work! Your contributions reflect the kind of awesome work we SmashWikidians like to see!
I congratulate you for adding so many d tags to unnecessary images! INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk) 11:09, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

Thanks, INoMed. I still need admins to delete all the images though, and I have made some mistakes. It's really the only really constructive thing I can do in the short time that I have, and I still have over 300 images to delete or find a home for. DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 11:20, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

By the way, The sheer size the the job was what warranted the shiningstar. (Your sig image is too big, shrink it down to 20 pixels. the maximum is 20 pixels btw) INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk) 11:23, 12 October 2015 (EDT)
Ok. My sig was one of the first things I did here, and I just changed the text for Halloween. I will try to fix that as soon as possible. DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 11:46, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

To answer your question...[edit]

I'm planning to mass delete early tomorrow morning, when the wiki is least active. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 16:39, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

Okay. Just do them before 4:10 SmashWiki Time so that the deleted images don't show up when the cache refreshes itself. DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 16:45, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

About this d-tag[edit]

The priority is referring to the different positions of the different Toon Links; if you look carefully, Blue and Purple are still, Green is done with the attack, and Red is attacking.

That said, I don't know why it's unused. Maybe because we have a similar image? Idk. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 11:29, 16 October 2015 (EDT)

Are we copying each other?[edit]

It seems we are. XD

That said, even though it seems you already have, you're welcome to grab any quote I have and put it on your quotes page. Hell, I'm willing to change your quotes page's code so that A. it changes more frequently, and B. it has much less stuff on it. Your call, though. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 12:29, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

I will keep it the way it is for now, I have another thing I am working on right now. DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 13:25, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Ryu's yellow-green costume[edit]

What is a hex number? Is that the colored bar below each of Ryu's colors? Are those colored bars "official"? Even if they are official, there's no denying that Ryu is wearing yellow-green clothes, which is why I removed that trivia point. Here's what I was thinking: The second palette swap is grey. The bar below it is black, but the costume itself is still grey. Would we write a trivia point about how Ryu has no grey costumes? John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 12:25, 26 October 2015 (EDT)

The bars represent the colors for the Dark Emperor's magic on Find Mii. Hex number refers to this. Miles (talk) 12:28, 26 October 2015 (EDT)
So technically, Ryu's color is yellow. But it's still yellow-green if you look at it. Do you think the trivia point should stay because of the technical explanation? John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 12:33, 26 October 2015 (EDT)
Give me a minute. I know a way to settle this. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 12:34, 26 October 2015 (EDT)
Pixlr gives the color off as #d9d95b, which it classifies as a shade of yellow. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 12:37, 26 October 2015 (EDT)
Fair enough, but under this logic, Duck Hunt, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, Pikachu, and Sonic all do not have green palette swaps either. Throw in Pac-Man, Shulk, and Ryu, and you have a fairly sizable group of characters without green palette swaps. Because of this, I feel the trivia point can be removed. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 14:55, 26 October 2015 (EDT)

(Reset indent) Duck Hunt's alts are based on real dogs/ducks, and I've never seen a green dog outside of fiction. Jigglypuff has her green hat, Pikachu has his green headband, Mewtwo had a green alt in Melee (and before you argue with me about Smash 4, it's cyan, not green), and Sonic has green bracelets. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 08:45, 28 October 2015 (EDT)

Just looked at Jigglypuff (SSBM), It has a green headband, not a green hat as one of its alternate costumes. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 09:04, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
And Pikachu has a green cowboy hat, not a green headband. Aidan, you messed up there. xD INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 09:05, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
You sure? Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 09:43, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
OK then, I may have been using SSBM pages accidentally. xD INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 09:45, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
Scratch that. Again. Just checked, Jigglypuff wears Kirby's sleep hat (Green) as one of its alts in games after SSBM. Seriously, I need to use character pages other than SSBM xD INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 09:47, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
What I'm trying to say is this: You all say Ryu's yellow-green costume is yellow because of the hex color. If we're going by hex color, I'm not going to argue that. However, there are multiple characters that do not have green hex color palette swaps. The characters I listed, like Duck Hunt and Jigglypuff, do not have green hex color palette swaps. If there are so many characters without green hex color palette swaps, I'm not sure that the trivia point needs to stay. Do you understand what I mean? I'm not trying to turn this into an argument, but I do think that the trivia point needs to be consistent or removed. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 10:42, 28 October 2015 (EDT)

"What is happening here?"[edit]

Too lazy to tag the gif, but the Marth gif with the Counter sending him off stage was actually a (now patched) glitch in Smash 3DS. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 23:15, 29 October 2015 (EDT)

Testing uno dos tres[edit]

Tu es welcome. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 12:08, 30 October 2015 (EDT)

Your test message[edit]


Here you go. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:10, 30 October 2015 (EDT)

Yes, IK the above is violating, but dekzek needed a dummy usemessage. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:11, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
Anyways, the reason I picked this violating format is because I wanted to display all characters (UPPERCASE, lowercase, and numbers (0123456789).) INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:14, 30 October 2015 (EDT)

...This new color amazing. It looks a bit more noticeable but still looks similar to the generic. Thanks DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 12:16, 30 October 2015 (EDT)

For the image, her you go: url(/images/thumb/a/a5/Message.png/32px-Message.png) left no-repeat; (Just toss this in next to the background colour) INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:19, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
Excuse me, but you need to flip ehere the image is by changing left to right. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:21, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
Also, the image shows up for me. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:27, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
To have the image show up, do it like this: background: #ffd77f url(/images/thumb/a/a5/Message.png/32px-Message.png) right no-repeat; (Hope this helps!) INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:30, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
Yes, this actually works. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 12:35, 30 October 2015 (EDT)

April Fools Sig[edit]

Your april fools sig contains white text, which, since it cannot be read on the default white background of the wiki, disobeys SW:SIG. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by BOO! Or maybe Nutta. 00:11, 31 October 2015 (EDT)

Yes, I know. I am figuring out how to have the text fade in between shades of grey, so that is not the final design.DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 17:20, 31 October 2015 (EDT)
To fix the White on white issue, just add "text-shadow:0px 0px 5px black;" to your april fools sig. (I do this in my CSS, except that it is red on red) INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 17:32, 31 October 2015 (EDT)
Example: AaBbCcDdEeFfGgHhIiJjKkLlMmNnOoPpQqRrSsTtUuVvWwXxYyZz0123456789 INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 17:34, 31 October 2015 (EDT)
Thanks. It worked perfectly. (Using this as an excuse to add the {{last}} template) DekZek, The creature of your nightmares Dekzeksig-Oct.png 17:41, 31 October 2015 (EDT)

Here's another tedious task.[edit]

I need help. I am all alone in the pursuit of updating the deprecated code on the smasher pages. I need some help, because there are over 100 pages left. Ganonmew, The TERRIFYING Evil Clone 18:11, 31 October 2015 (EDT)

Moving pages and orphaned pages[edit]

  1. Never move a page by copy-paste, and always discuss any move before making it.
  2. Orphaned pages are sometimes okay; try not to rearrange too many links in trying to un-orphan one.

Miles (talk) 11:44, 3 November 2015 (EST)

The policy hasn't been implemented yet...[edit]

Would you mind using the current templates until it can be implemented more easily (either by a bot or editing in low-traffic hours)? Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Talk | Contribs) 16:59, 9 November 2015 (EST)

Okay. I wasnt going to add any more for now anyways. (clicks preview, notices Ness doesnt have image...) What should I replace them with? DekZek Dekzeksig.png 17:03, 9 November 2015 (EST)
Don't replace them; unless there's something major that Exemplary Logic can help with, we can probably implement later this week anyway. Not worth it to go back and change it after you already added the template. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Talk | Contribs) 17:04, 9 November 2015 (EST)
Youre completeley misunderstanding me. I forgot to upload one for Ness, what should I put on that one. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 17:07, 9 November 2015 (EST)

Okay. I will do the ones for Melee and Smash 4 after this gets solved. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 17:31, 9 November 2015 (EST)

Why not just let the bot do its thing?[edit]

Bots are used for a reason; besides getting banal maintenance stuff done faster, it doesn't clog up the recent changes with said edits. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 12:26, 12 November 2015 (EST)

I was kind of joking with that. I actually like doing those mass edits, mostly because it distracts me from other boring stuff I have to listen to (school). I can't hide myself or my edits on Recent Changes. Does that answer your questions?DekZek Dekzeksig.png 12:32, 12 November 2015 (EST)
Then you should be putting that effort into something else that can't be bot-handled and won't completely blot out the recent changes. Unless there's some urgent time-constraint those edits have to be done by that I'm not aware of, you shouldn't be mass-handling bot edits like that. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 12:48, 12 November 2015 (EST)

So tell me why we can't just use Toomai's bot to handle the job your doing? Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Musician 19:35, 16 November 2015 (EST)

XL is an all or nothing when it comes to this stuff. Read Toomai's talk page. Not all images are license screenshot, so XL can't do it. When I find a category with all one license, I tell Toomai on his talk page, but for the most part I have to go and mass edit. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 19:41, 16 November 2015 (EST)
I myself do this kind of stuff too but I am kinda lazy about it at times. I'm willing to help you with the stuff your doing if you want. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The N64 19:46, 16 November 2015 (EST)
I honestly do this whenever I can, mostly when I have 20-30 minutes at school to "study". My schedule is pretty hectic, and if you want to help, here. Replace all the images with the needed tags, most of which are screenshots. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 19:49, 16 November 2015 (EST)
Well I already know where to find them but thanks. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Metal Slug 19:52, 16 November 2015 (EST)

My RPG[edit]

I'm not sure how useful your ability is... I mean, logging in doesn't really exist for the sake of the "game", it's just kind of assumed that everyone is always logged in when in the party, except for if they use Log Out, which only lasts for one turn anyway. So could you maybe come up with a different ability? :P ---Preceding unsigned comment added by a turkey! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 16:47, 16 November 2015 (EST)

Does alias work? DekZek Dekzeksig.png 18:48, 16 November 2015 (EST)
Sure! ---Preceding unsigned comment added by a turkey! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 10:52, 17 November 2015 (EST)


Is there a reason you're removing character and game categories on images in your current batch? Updating the license is fine and the PotD category is fine, but I'm curious why the other stuff is being removed. Miles (talk) 22:54, 29 November 2015 (EST)

Oops. I mostly just delete and paste. I wasn't really paying attention. Sorry. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 22:55, 29 November 2015 (EST)
You've ripped a ton of categories and descriptions off of images. You should reserve blind copy-paste edits for tasks where you know you aren't damaging anything else in the process. I'm not upset, but I would appreciate if you would show more caution in the future. Miles (talk) 22:59, 29 November 2015 (EST)
Okay. The first 20-30 images had no categories on them so I assumed the rest of them didn't have any of them either. I am paying more attention now. DekZek Dekzeksig.png 23:00, 29 November 2015 (EST)

Darn you![edit]

You are so good at flooding RC! (Not really angry as much as I am amused albeit annoyed; also I get that I could turn off m edits but then I can't see whenever OT does something). Ganonmew, The Festive Evil Clone 16:43, 1 December 2015 (EST)

Prepare for another wave in 3... 2... 1... DekZek Dekzeksig.png 11:23, 2 December 2015 (EST)
Dang it. Ganonmew, The Festive Evil Clone 15:49, 2 December 2015 (EST)

Just so you know[edit]

I dropped a proposal here. AidanzapunkChristmasSig.pngAidan, the Jolly Space WarriorAidanzapunkChristmasSig2.png 14:55, 14 December 2015 (EST)

Usage rights[edit]

Since you're the one who has been working with the image licensing, I figured I would ask you this: Do we have to include the usage rights for non-mainspace images? So far, I have only taken images that fall under fair use, but I wonder if that is necessary. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 09:44, 24 December 2015 (EST)

I say do it for as many as you can, to make things simpler. DekZek, The Festive Fighter Dekzeksig-Dec.png 11:08, 6 January 2016 (EST)

What happened to editing?[edit]

You haven't been on in a long time. Something up, or just a break? 22:42, 1 January 2016 (EST)

Winter Break. I mostly edit at school. DekZek, The Festive Fighter Dekzeksig-Dec.png 11:08, 6 January 2016 (EST)
