Hey[edit]

Just so you know, you're not allowed to edit the status without an edit summary. Ganonmew, The Festive Evil Clone 13:11, 26 December 2015 (EST)

Oh, okay. Thanks for letting me know. -- Ethan7 (talk) 14:43, 26 December 2015 (EST)

RFR[edit]

You aren't supposed to comment on Requests for Rollback unless Toomai opens it for discussion. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 13:38, 13 January 2016 (EST)

Oh, sorry. How can I tell if it is open? Should my comment stay? -- Ethan (Discussion) 14:01, 13 January 2016 (EST)
"No other users may comment unless the RfR has been opened for discussion." Yeah, I should have saw that. -- Ethan (Discussion) 14:03, 13 January 2016 (EST)

SW:1RV[edit]

Technically re-removing the first trivia point was in violation of this ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 22:35, 17 January 2016 (EST)

Okay, sorry for violating that rule. Would have been fine to normally edit it instead of reverting it? -- Ethan (Discussion) 22:50, 17 January 2016 (EST)
No, an appropriate action would have been to bring it to the talk page. It may be a good idea for you to have a good look through our policies and guidelines. Serpent SKSig.png King 23:07, 17 January 2016 (EST)
Yeah, I need to know the rules so this won't keep happening. Thanks! -- Ethan (Discussion) 23:15, 17 January 2016 (EST)

"Colour"[edit]

This is an instance of non-American English and is not incorrect; see SmashWiki:Manual of Style#Writing style. Miles (talk) 14:27, 22 January 2016 (EST)

I see. Thanks. -- Ethan (Discussion) 15:33, 22 January 2016 (EST)

SW:AGF[edit]

I wouldn't call him a vandal yet. His edit was unnecessary, but not inappropriate. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:27, 23 January 2016 (EST)

Nvm. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:27, 23 January 2016 (EST)

Filenames[edit]

They can have spaces :P ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 17:18, 24 January 2016 (EST)

Oh, I don't think I've really seen any files with them. I don't think I've heard of them prohibited either. -- EthanUser:Ethan7(Discussion) 17:33, 24 January 2016 (EST)
I don't think it matters really. Usually, I think it's more stylish to name files without spaces, though, but that's just me. I usually use hyphens. Serpent SKSig.png King 17:36, 24 January 2016 (EST)
You could also use underscores (_) but there's no real reason to when spaces work :P ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 17:38, 24 January 2016 (EST)
Yeah, I was talking about underscores when I said "For some reason it made it [the underscore] into a space". -- EthanUser:Ethan7(Discussion) 20:31, 24 January 2016 (EST)

Congrats[edit]

On your rollback. :D Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 16:57, 5 February 2016 (EST)

I am? That's great. Thank you for congratulating me. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 16:59, 5 February 2016 (EST)

I like being first sooo[edit]

Congrats! Insert favorite victory music here.

Too late... XD Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 16:58, 5 February 2016 (EST)
Eh, it was worth a shot xDD ---Preceding unsigned comment added by cupid♥. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 17:00, 5 February 2016 (EST)

The heck can a Rollback even do Kirby's Crazy Appetite ~ KirbyHeadYellowSSB.png 17:01, 5 February 2016 (EST)

Read this. Please leave a message for Penro when you see something wrong I did. PenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 17:04, 5 February 2016 (EST)
SW:RB. They can revert multiple consecutive edits at once but must only be used against vandalism. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 17:05, 5 February 2016 (EST)

Regarding this[edit]

Sakurai actually did confirm it's the last update. However, it's still bad trivia nonetheless. AidanzapunkSig1.pngAidan, the Lovely Dragon WarriorAidanzapunkSig2.png 14:26, 12 February 2016 (EST)

He did? Where? -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 14:37, 12 February 2016 (EST)

Buffs/nerfs[edit]

I'd be better if we indeed put how the changes to shield mechanics affect fighters. After all, a change is a change, regardless of whether it was a direct one or not. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 16:55, 1 March 2016 (EST)

I removed it because we never do that and I think that's what the description is for. Does it really need a bullet to signify about a nerf/buff? -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 17:45, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Well, many characters in their transitions got changed, either from Melee to Brawl or Brawl to SSB4. And their changes are listed in their respective sections: for example, the removal of meteor cancelling is listed as a benefit to Dorf since he can meteor easily now, while the removal of hitstun cancelling is listed as a hindrance to D3 since he is now the easiest character to combo in the game. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 18:06, 1 March 2016 (EST)
But, why do we even need it in any if we have a block of text for explaining how they are changed? -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:00, 1 March 2016 (EST)
We can compress it then. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 19:01, 1 March 2016 (EST)
I wasn't sure what to call the description so I just called it a block of text. I think it (the description) is for explaining while buff/nerf/change templates are for facts. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:03, 1 March 2016 (EST)

(Reset) Like this. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 19:04, 1 March 2016 (EST)

I don't care about the amount of text. I'm just saying what it's for. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:06, 1 March 2016 (EST)
So you concur with me, or not? I'd still be tempted to continue because it is technically a change. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 19:18, 1 March 2016 (EST)
I'd kind of like to not have indirect changes in either sections because the text above the changelist is for explaining how a character changed. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:39, 1 March 2016 (EST)

This[edit]

^ --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 13:43, 11 March 2016 (EST)

If you say so. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 13:44, 11 March 2016 (EST)

9B[edit]

He's placed 5th at three Smash 4 nationals (Umebura F.A.T., Umebura Niconico Qualifiers, and Shots Fired 2, with the latter of these three being one of the most stacked Smash 4 tournaments to happen so far. He also notably beat Ally at both Umebura F.A.T. and Shots Fired 2, Vinnie at Umebura F.A.T., and Ranai at Shots Fired 2. 9B is more than qualified to be considered a top player for Smash 4, and there are likely other results not accounted for as well. PokemonMasterJamal3 (talk) 12:55, 21 March 2016 (EDT)
I guess that's enough to be considered top professional. What exactly is a regional? Did he win any? -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 13:04, 21 March 2016 (EDT)

Ahem...[edit]

IRC. We need to talk plz. I know I'm not an admin, but still I feel like we could talk. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 17:52, 25 April 2016 (EDT)

Challenge[edit]

Wanna fight in Smash 4 Wii U? If not, that's ok. ANИa (talk) 17:35, 10 May 2016 (EDT)

Sure, I can play. My NNID is "BulbapediaEditor" (I don't edit on Bulbapedia anymore, just to let you know). What time do you want to play? -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:50, 10 May 2016 (EDT)
Whenever you're free next Friday, really. Do you have any preference for our stage list? ANИa (talk) 11:34, 11 May 2016 (EDT)
I guess we can play after 6:00 PM eastern time. You mean next Friday, so the 20th, right? If you have an Anther's Ladder account, we could use that for communication and stage striking. If not, we could just use like FD, Battle Field and Smashville or whatever you want and use Special:WebChat for communication.
By the way, you can fix your image for your userpage by having just the name of the image without any brackets and "Image:". -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 12:21, 11 May 2016 (EDT)
I think I'll use the webchat thing. We'll talk about stages and stuff when you're on it. ANИa (talk) 13:47, 20 May 2016 (EDT)
Okay, that will work. You can remind me if I forget a while after 6:00 PM. You can send a friends request to me and tell me that it's you. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 14:02, 20 May 2016 (EDT)

How is that fair?[edit]

Blingo beat raptor a few times at that tournament how can he not be notable he came in third place . Its also referenced on dabuz wiki page even though its less then 20 entrants Blingo also beat dabuz one time . Not fair how it can be notable on one page and not the other. —Preceding unsigned comment added by blingottm (talkcontribs) 21:35 13 May 2016 (EDT)

First of all, please sign your comments with ~~~~ and make new sections at the bottom of a talk page. I personally think the tournament should be removed from Dabuz's page. Independent of this, we don't just list every smasher who is notable enough for a page and who mains a character in the notable players section. They have to be iconic for their usage of a character and a top professional (someone who beats a top professional is not neccesarily a top professional themselves), criteria that Blingo does not fit. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 22:47, 13 May 2016 (EDT)
Well, for starters, you need to put your messages at the bottom of talk pages (See SW:TALK). Using "new section" will place it at the bottom of the page so I recommend you use that. Also, you need to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). I was going to fix those but NyargleBlargle already took care of it while I was typing this out.
I removed Blingo because tournaments that size aren't considered notable. And while he beat Dabuz in one match and Raptor two, he still lost the sets and they might not have been using their mains. Even if he got first those tournaments are too small. If he places well in regionals like getting top 8 or something in 100+ man tournaments with some notable players and becomes a well known Mac player, he could get his own page on the Wiki. If you show us big tournaments that he placed well in, he might be able to be put in "Notable players". -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 22:57, 13 May 2016 (EDT)
Fine, eventually blingo will be acknowledged and notable. Also they were using their mains I have the footage to prove it. Blingottm (talk) 01:05, 14 May 2016 (EDT)
But I understand I don't want to make any issues . Blingo will go to CEO and try his best. Blingottm (talk) 01:26, 14 May 2016 (EDT)

Rekt[edit]

I didn't realize that submitting an RfA would be like poking a huge group of angry bears... haha, well, thanks for welcoming me! Honestly, I could care less about adminship, I was just wanting to help out in a larger capacity than I felt able to do. I'll continue being a noob on the wiki. Hopefully they don't hate me too much now to throw a ban hammer my way. :P Ubiquittea (talk) 20:59, 16 June 2016 (EDT)

Nah that'd be an abuse of our power. :P Welcome to the wiki btw, and if you have any questions in the future, feel free to ask. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 21:00, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
You may want to have a look at some of these, particularly SW:TALK. But yeah, welcome to the wiki. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:03, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
Thank you for the welcomes. :3 Ubiquittea (talk) 21:47, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
Uh, I have a question. When that archive was put up I was editing at that moment. The "someone edited this" thing didn't pop up and my edit got through. Now would that be considered editing after the archive? Kirby's Crazy Appetite ~ KirbyHeadYellowSSB.png 21:08, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
Yes. but it's fine this time. Also, why did you ask here instead of on your own talk page? At this point we are kinda just spamming Ethan. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:13, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
The RfA was being talked about, so I figured to go over here? Kirby's Crazy Appetite ~ KirbyHeadYellowSSB.png 21:15, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
You're welcome. I don't think we minded the RFA too much, it's just that you have to earn (or show that you are worthy of) adminship, and not just ask for it, even if you can put good use with it. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 23:46, 16 June 2016 (EDT)
