Redirects[edit]

2 things: 1) When tagging capitalization redirects, make sure that the redirect that corresponds with the target page's capitalization scheme is kept (e.g. "Short hopping" over "Short Hopping" because the page is called "Short hop"). 2) A minor thing but it does slow me down, when tagging a redirect for deletion, please do it above the redirect line. This keeps MediaWiki from automatically redirecting me to the target page from the speedy delete category. Thanks! Serpent SKSig.png King 22:39, 25 June 2016 (EDT)

Making tournament pages[edit]

First off, I think there may be something wrong with your archive links, so you might want to check that out.

Secondly, I'm glad you're making tournament pages, but can you make sure they're formatted properly? They should have an opening sentence or two and you should try and fill out as much of the infobox as possible, if you can find the info.

Socks[edit]

I'd really prefer that socks get reported ONLY if they become an actual problem. Yeah the policy says that there can be only one account per user, but if we go through and try to detect all the possible sock accounts (even ones that have been inactive for years), we are just stirring the pot for no reason. Serpent SKSig.png King 12:18, 5 July 2016 (EDT)

Sock account[edit]

Please do not make sock accounts. You should know better. Serpent SKSig.png King 17:08, 9 July 2016 (EDT)

It was a backup account just in case PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 17:45, 9 July 2016 (EDT)
It says nowhere in the rules that backup accounts are not allowed, and now i can't edit PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 18:05, 9 July 2016 (EDT)

There are only 2 cases in which socks are acceptable: Bots, and lost password cases. Yours does not fall in either category, ergo it's not allowed. Serpent SKSig.png King 19:23, 9 July 2016 (EDT)

Also I think it's pretty damn hypocritical that you go and report all of these potential socks that were not an issue (I am almost positive that most of those were simply lost password), then you go and make one yourself. Serpent SKSig.png King 19:25, 9 July 2016 (EDT)
Are you going to demote me PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 19:31, 9 July 2016 (EDT)
1) I can't, 2) why would I? You didn't abuse rollback... Serpent SKSig.png King 19:39, 9 July 2016 (EDT)

Creating pages[edit]

I am going to have to ask you to stop creating pages with so little content on them. If you are going to create a page, please actually spend some time doing the research and formatting things appropriately. We have no use for these half baked pages. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:43, 12 July 2016 (EDT)

This, for instance, is unacceptable. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:44, 12 July 2016 (EDT)

You don screwed up.[edit]

I took what I didn't have from your CSS and put it in mine, and when I did it removed the green bar containing my main pages, and removed the green from text. What happened? Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 23:41, 5 August 2016 (EDT)

Can you screenshot me the difference? Maybe I can help Serpent SKSig.png King 23:45, 5 August 2016 (EDT)
Don't know how. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 23:47, 5 August 2016 (EDT)
...actually, I think I might. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 00:02, 6 August 2016 (EDT)

Steel Kangaroo[edit]

Okay, I had severe doubts about this article, and I just looked it up and I'm not finding much on Smashboards nor is there anything linked on here. Do you have anything else to help prove this smasher's notability? Because otherwise, I'm deleting it. Disaster Flare DisasterFlareHalloweenSigImage.png (talk) 18:45, 7 September 2016 (EDT)

Mhm, I'm gonna need a source on that. The fact that there's literally nothing on this guy on SW is already a pretty big blow as is, and like I said, there's barely anything noteworthy from a Smashboards search. Disaster Flare DisasterFlareHalloweenSigImage.png (talk) 18:58, 7 September 2016 (EDT)
Looking on only Smashboards is a terrible idea [1] PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 19:01, 7 September 2016 (EDT)
Sorry if I came off rude there PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 19:06, 7 September 2016 (EDT)
Not sure if we should have PM exclusive players. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 19:08, 7 September 2016 (EDT)
If we can have PM exclusive tournaments, why not players, after all we are supposed to be trying to be as complete as possible, even though we will never be complete PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 19:10, 7 September 2016 (EDT)

Mains[edit]

If the player isn't notable for a playing a specific game in the series, don't add their mains for that game. Thanks. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 20:01, 9 September 2016 (EDT)

Since when did Nintendude play SSB4, Revan play SSB4 or Melee, UnReal play Melee, Star King play SSB4, and so on, I do my research, they played early brawl in 2008, and actually got pretty decent results, Lovage even beat DSF before, PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 20:15, 9 September 2016 (EDT)
Listing examples of things that we have wrong proves nothing. Proof of your claims is necessary, preferably in the form of actually giving the page results. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 20:24, 9 September 2016 (EDT)
I will provide results PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 11:24, 10 September 2016 (EDT)

Look[edit]

I know that you have been here for a while now and you have some credibility with the tournament scene, but that does not make you above our rules. The deal is that results and mains and whatever have to be proven, especially in the notable players sections. If you fail to understand that, I will be left with no choice but to take action. Consider this a warning. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 18:48, 15 September 2016 (EDT)

Heads and character links[edit]

When you are linking to a character page (or using the head template) please link to the exact name of the page (e.g. Captain Falcon as opposed to CaptainFalcon). Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 18:22, 2 October 2016 (EDT)

Results tags[edit]

I'd been meaning to talk to you about this for a while because to be quite honest, it's annoying me a little bit. It's fine to add results tags to articles and all, but there are problems with you doing it that I'm seeing:

  1. You tend to add the tag, citing only a certain game without providing any sources that they actually play the game seriously enough for it to be listed on their articles
  2. With the above in mind, it's quite clear that you know what results need to be added (especially since a couple times you've mentioned "you found results" in the results tags), yet you tag them anyway and move on.

I'm kindly asking you to please refrain from doing these from now on. The first issue I pointed out makes it quite troublesome to have to constantly revert your edits, and the second issue is just plain unfair. If you know what results need to be added, you really should add them yourself. Tagging the article and then moving on only comes off as lazy to the eyes of other users. I understand that sometimes people can be pretty busy, but even the busiest of people can make time. Basically what I'm trying to get at is if you don't have time at that time, then maybe bookmark those results and then add them yourself later when you do get free time, instead of adding more piles of work to make others do. In a project like this requiring collaboration, not doing your part will only make things harder for the rest of the community, which are already working their hardest on other things, which is why I'm doing the best I possibly can despite how little time I tend to have. That's really about all I have to say at the moment, so I'll leave you to your business now. Thank you for your time, and please keep what I said in mind. The more people actually working together, the quicker we can get our excess workload done. Disaster Flare DisasterFlareHalloweenSigImage.png (talk) 23:49, 3 October 2016 (EDT)

A possible error?[edit]

So you made this smasher's page, but did you mean to include the TGC 8 result? Did TGC 8 even have Melee? John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 11:13, 3 December 2016 (EST)

Alrighty[edit]

You've been warned about this before, this will be your last warning. Please stop with the zero effort smasher pages. They are non-beneficial to our project and only make it look worse than it already did. Smasher pages should have:

  1. A decent info box (aliases, image, mains, skill, location).
  2. A substantial intro paragraph, not just "He's a Melee Falcon main from Canada" or something. Actually go into depth like the other smasher pages.
  3. You've usually been ok here, but a few results.

Thanks! Serpent SKSig.png King 22:22, 27 December 2016 (EST)

Subpages[edit]

I know you say you want your subpages deleted, but do you still want to keep your css? Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 17:36, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

Ahh, yea save that, i grew fond of it PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 17:39, 23 June 2017 (EDT)
Alrighty. Anything else I should save? Anything super important like drafts we need I can just move into my userspace, and if I ended up deleting something you wanted to keep, I can easily restore it for you. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 17:40, 23 June 2017 (EDT)
That should be good PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 17:41, 23 June 2017 (EDT)
k. If you decide you want anything else back, just message me on my talk page. :P Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 17:42, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

Techniques named after smashers[edit]

You asked about the list on User:Smiddle/Eponymous techs a long time ago, and feel free to add techniques from any game. – Smiddle 04:55, 5 January 2018 (EST)

King Dedede page changes[edit]

Hello Poultry! I recently saw all the changes to Dedede's Smash Ultimate page. I see that you have deleted the statement about Dedede's back throw. I was the one who added that a long time ago when Smash Ultimate was in it's early stages.(But already released to the public) When I put that in, I added evidence to my summery to prove it. I have it linked for ya right here. If all makes sense and we agree, may I put back that change? Smash 4 back throw https://youtu.be/N3Qvpt1OdIQ The youtube one, Luigi was grabbed at 124%. In Smash Ultimate back throw https://twitter.com/ElBardo22/status/1059530703254237184 The twitter one, Luigi was grabbed at 122% and died. Luigi's weight also remained unchanged too. --98.151.46.222 01:24, June 10, 2019 (EDT)

Erm... idk what edits you're referring to, but are you sure Poultry made them? He's only made seven edits since Ultimate was even announced (or, for that matter, since almost a year before) and none of them were to Dedede. TheNuttyOne 01:51, June 10, 2019 (EDT)

OH SHOOT I'm sorry I misread another person's talk page and I somehow got myself here. Would you like me to delete this whole section? --98.151.46.222 01:55, June 10, 2019 (EDT)
