Victory Poses[edit]

Do you have plans for continuing your extensive page-renaming project into Melee and Smash 4, which both also have inputted victory poses? Thanks a lot for doing what you have though - that's a lot of painstaking, mind-numbing work. John John3637881 Signature.png HUAH! 16:46, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

You did a great job with naming Brawl poses. Can you do the same for Smash 4 and Melee? Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 16:50, 16 October 2018 (EDT)
Eventually, yes. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:54, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

You didn't warn me![edit]

Four days ago, you blocked me for my abusive language right away! You didn't give me even one warning! Why did you have to block me without warning me?! Can you PLEASE warn me before you block me again?! -- 22:55, 18 October 2018 (EDT)

Not SK, but you were blatantly violating SW:TALK and SmashWiki is no place to post such things, as they do not contribute to any discussions. Have a good read of the policy and other policies. Thank you. Also, you were warned on your talk page. Awesomelink234, the Super Spooky Sonic Fan Leave a message if needed 23:02, 18 October 2018 (EDT)
As per SW:BLOCK, blatant and consecutive violations to policy (such as your violations to SW:TALK, even after being warned by multiple users, including an administrator) may justify an unwarned ban. — NokiiSigH.png Nokii (T·C·L) 23:21, 18 October 2018 (EDT)
You were also attacking other users, to add to the growing list of policy violations. Given the way you were behaving, I believe the admins thought that the only way to get you to stop would be to block you immediately. Going off on the front foot like you are now though is not going to do you any favours whatsoever. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 02:31, 19 October 2018 (EDT)

Player tags.[edit]

So, when a player changes their tag to anything, what should I do? I'm stuck on that. [[File:LinkHeadSSBU.png|17px|link=User:Iridium]][[User talk:Iridium|<font color="lightblue">''Iridium'''</font>]] (talk) 11:58, 21 October 2018 (EDT)

In this case, the player reverted their tag back to the first one, so what should I do? Sorry about the signature thing. Iridium77 (talk) 12:02, 21 October 2018 (EDT)
Make a redirect to the current article with the tag they changed to. (if a->b->a then b redirects to a) Serpent SKSig.png King 12:47, 21 October 2018 (EDT)

DialAForAwesome wants to say something[edit]

Hey Serpent King I just wanted to tell you that you are probably my favorite user on this entire site DialA4Awesome 19:24, 23 October 2018 (EDT)

This is improper usage of a talk page. See our talk page policy for what is and is not. Awesomelink234, the Super Spooky Sonic Fan Leave a message if needed 19:51, 23 October 2018 (EDT)
Also, your signature is not valid. Every signature must contain a link to your userpage and/or your talk page. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 20:00, 23 October 2018 (EDT)

Character Sort and DLC on the main Ultimate page[edit]

I'm sure it's been brought up, but shouldn't the characters be sorted by their number on the Ultimate page since that's how they are in both the game and website?

I think there should be a new section on the character display for DLC, instead of putting them in with regular newcomers. I don't know if it's all that big of a deal, but I think it'd be nice. JohnnyWellens 19:30, 1 November 2018 (EDT)

Instead of blindly following what's official, we will instead list characters in a way that makes sense, and that means ignoring the Sakurai numbers. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Polychromatic 19:44, 1 November 2018 (EDT)
I don't think it's blindly following, I think it's following the pattern that the game has created. There's been a big emphasis on the order the characters were released. Also, if a person plays the game and goes to the Wiki to look at info on their favorite character, wouldn't it be beneficial for the characters to be in a similar order as the game? JohnnyWellens 22:06, 1 November 2018 (EDT)

Extreme backlog in the speedy deletions[edit]

There is a large amount of pages that are tagged as speedy delete, the last time I checked, which was a minute or two ago, there was 85 pages tagged for speedy deletion. George Jones.jpg Corrin Fan Walls Can Fall.jpg 15:58, 9 November 2018 (EST)


I literally just gave you the source, unless you mean something else. 17:21, 13 November 2018 (EST)

Those are not a source. A source would be the inkling in those costumes. Serpent SKSig.png King 17:24, 13 November 2018 (EST)
If Russians and even Germans can wear keffiyehs, so can Inklings. 17:30, 13 November 2018 (EST)
Show me an image of the inkling wearing that garb and you can put the trivia back up. Serpent SKSig.png King 18:56, 13 November 2018 (EST)

Please protect the Bayonetta (SSBU) article[edit]

I have seen edit warring by Umbra King7791 on the Bayonetta (SSBU) article. The person in question is adding information that is speculative. He was warned about it, even I had to warn him about it, but he is ignoring the warnings. I had to undo one of his edits today. I think that the page needs to be protected to prevent that. I also think the protection needs to last until release of Ultimate to prevent further edit warring. George Jones.jpg Corrin Fan Walls Can Fall.jpg 13:45, 17 November 2018 (EST)

Ink effect page[edit]

Do you think it would be about time to make the Ink effect page since Ultimate drops in under three weeks? Or does that have to wait a bit? SonicSpeed48ThanksgivingSig4.pngSonic, the Thankful SpeedsterFallLovingTigger.png 19:42, 17 November 2018 (EST)

Toomai has a draft set up just in case it is an effect, or just something special. Aidan, the Thankful Rurouni 19:47, 17 November 2018 (EST)

Music (SSBU)[edit]

Hey Serpent King, do you think you could help with the one of the music charts again? This time, the F-Zero music section is having the same problems as the Mega Man section did before. Could you help again please? SonicSpeed48ThanksgivingSig4.pngSonic, the Thankful SpeedsterFallLovingTigger.png 17:42, 25 November 2018 (EST)

Sorry I took so long to get back with you, things have been busy. I looked at the article and found nothing wrong with it. Can you be more specific? Serpent SKSig.png King 13:49, 28 November 2018 (EST)
When I tried to make the F-Zero music section for Ultimate collapsible, it made every music section below it disappear, like what happened with the Mega Man section once before. SonicSpeed48ThanksgivingSig4.pngSonic, the Thankful SpeedsterFallLovingTigger.png 13:53, 28 November 2018 (EST)
Go ahead and do whatever you did again, and I'll look at it. Serpent SKSig.png King 13:56, 28 November 2018 (EST)
Actually, never mind. Someone must have done it for me. SonicSpeed48ThanksgivingSig4.pngSonic, the Thankful SpeedsterFallLovingTigger.png 14:08, 28 November 2018 (EST)

Why was blocked?[edit]

According to the recent changes log, user was blocked, even though they only undid an edit by, who was the actual source of the vandalism on the Masahiro Sakurai page. I am in no way related to either user, I am just asking if this was intentional. Everone123 (profiletalkcontribs) 16:16, 27 November 2018 (EST)

it was not, I'll fix it. Sorry about that everyone! Serpent SKSig.png King 16:23, 27 November 2018 (EST)

Thank you[edit]

I know this isn't really the place for this type of talk, and I do apologize for it, but has anyone told you that you rock, Serpent King? SonicSpeed48ChristmasSig4.pngSonic, the Cheerful SpeedsterChristmasTimeTigger.png 00:19, 7 December 2018 (EST)

I roll too. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:20, 7 December 2018 (EST)
You know what? You're a pretty awesome dude in my book, Serpent King. You honestly deserve a lot more recognition for all the work you do on here. High props to you, man! SonicSpeed48ChristmasSig4.pngSonic, the Cheerful SpeedsterChristmasTimeTigger.png 00:27, 7 December 2018 (EST)

pretend attributes[edit]

how do I make them Sammybambam11 (talk) 14:59, 14 December 2018 (EST)

I'm not sure what you mean. Elaborate? Serpent SKSig.png King 02:37, 15 December 2018 (EST)

How dare you change my edits you butt. Why won't you allow it jerk, I bet you do not know the metal Iridium.kyogre (talk) 20:33, 16 December 2018

Because we report the accurate information. We don't have edits with "what people want" or "what people think it should be" or "pretend attributes". Have a nice day. Aidan, the Festive Rurouni 15:35, 16 December 2018 (EST)

Can you pls merge IP Address <admin removed info> with my Account. I accidentally editted while logged out.[edit]

I accidently Submmitted the following two changes: under my IP-Address (<admin removed info>). I didn't notice that i wasn't logged in. On another Tab i had created an account, but on the tab i used to click on edit i wasn't logged in (or i wasn't really logged in even though i just created the account). The Page allowed me to submit, so i didn't notice that i wan't logged in. Then i wanted to upload an image, but the page told me i had to log in. That's how i noticed i wasn't logged in. Can you please merge the IP Address with my Account (ProLink) or set me as the author of those two pages? Contact me if you need additional info or proof or whatever. And pls delete this when everything is sorted so that nobody sees my IP. Begging for your help, --ProLink (talk) 11:39, 18 December 2018 (EST)

The fact that edits were made with your IP is not an issue, but if you are worried about your privacy, I will strike the IP from the log Serpent SKSig.png King 12:15, 18 December 2018 (EST)
You will need to hide the summary for this edit as well. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:52, 18 December 2018 (EST)

You blocked one of Memoryman3's anonymous IP sockpuppets, but not the other.[edit]

Please block ASAP. Also, put Clone, Dr. Mario (SSBU), Young Link (SSBU), Pichu (SSBU), Richter (SSBU) and Dark Samus (SSBU) under permanent (not temporary) semi-protection! Zakawer2 (talk) 17:54, 27 December 2018 (EST)

Woah, calm down a bit. I know you are frustrated by the Memoryman issue, but there's no need to demand for anything. SugarCookie420 (talk) 17:58, 27 December 2018 (EST)
We are discussing Clone right now but I will not put that many articles under protection. Too many constructive contributors blocked out. Serpent SKSig.png King 18:03, 27 December 2018 (EST)

Spirits compendium page[edit]

Hello! Quick question, can you create a new page called List of spirits (complete list) akin to List of stickers (complete list)? I have all the information ready but nowhere to add it. Thanks! GamblerMario (talk) 14:59, 2 January 2019 (EST)

Rename request[edit]

My name was made when I was younger and so I would like to change it to "MetaCyde", if you will. Anto99 (talk) 19:05, 3 January 2019 (EST)

You made a typo Serpent King, I guess you meant to tell the user to wait a few days per SW:NAMECHANGE. I'm just letting you know of the typo. I'm not a grammar n*** or anything. I just letting you know of the typo. George Jones.jpg Corrin Fan Walls Can Fall.jpg 22:18, 3 January 2019 (EST)
SW:TALK technically doesn’t allow it but you could have changed it yourself and it would have been fine. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 00:07, 4 January 2019 (EST)
Better? Serpent SKSig.png King 07:29, 4 January 2019 (EST)
Well then, I'm coming back to confirm the change. Anto99 (talk) 19:05, 5 January 2019 (EST)

Change to the yellow status?[edit]

Should we go from the red status to the yellow status? There is factors going in, like lower traffic and the things to do are going down. If we aren't ready to go to the yellow status, I have an idea. Once we get to less than 3,000 things to do, we can go into the yellow.

Name Change[edit]

If possible, I would like to change my username to just Hinata. Hinata2000100 (talk) 20:39, 16 January 2019 (EST)

Belly Super Armor[edit]

Hey there, Serpent King! What do you think of the unblockable belly armor I've put up in the talk page? Juju1995 (talk) 22:17, 20 January 2019 (EST)

Not really sure what you are talking about, if you could perhaps be more specific? Serpent SKSig.png King 22:53, 20 January 2019 (EST)
In the Belly Super Armor's Talk page, I've stated the King K. Rool's stomach armor is unblockable against certain attacks, like Focus Attack. What do you think of it? Is it good? Juju1995 (talk) 23:03, 20 January 2019 (EST)

Smash Bros. logo gif[edit]

Remember when I said that I couldn't upload a GIF of the Super Smash Bros. logo that appears at the end of the opening of SSB? Now I know how and uploaded it. Hope that is alright. Juju1995 (talk) 20:04, 22 January 2019 (EST)

Victory pose image categories[edit]

Hey there man, I'm not trying to be rude but it took me an entire day to get all the SSBU victory poses up and running on the wiki, and I just can't be bothered to go back and add them all in. I hope you can understand. Mikoro (talk) 23:16, 31 January 2019 (EST)

I recommend you keep the discussion where it began (i.e. your talk page) as to make it easier to follow up, without having to read multiple talk pages.
As for the images, they're already done. NokiiSig.png Nokii — 23:58, 31 January 2019 (EST)

Similar edits like this one[edit]

Not so recently, I've seen some people creating what I believe is false information for tournament pages, something like the previous edit. There have been other users who have done something similar edits like this one, this one, where he stated he added a random crew battle cuz why not, and this one, where Ganondorf was spelled incorrectly just like the one linked in the title. I strongly feel like there is a "silent" vandal here who's purposefully replacing correct information, however at the same time I do have to assume that the vandal was doing it in good faith. I was wondering about your input on this matter. SugarCookie420 (talk) 22:21, 7 February 2019 (EST)

For now, just keep reverting it, if we come across a correlation in their behavior or IP addresses, then we can act. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:08, 8 February 2019 (EST)

Would this requested change to the infobox be considered a consensus?[edit]

I’m really sorry to bother you, especially about the alternate genders table fiasco where we resorted to attacking each other. However, I just want to check in and see if this current proposal counts as a consensus, if the change is greenlit, and how to do it if it is (if possible).

Note: These users have voiced their opinions on the page. The “support@, “neutral”, and “oppose” sections were placed after they voiced their opinions. Additionally, I’m attempting to create the template with tabs inside of the Sandbox already. Would this change be acceptable


Lou Cena (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Cena WHOIS): The one who made the proposal in the first place. Is currently attempting to test a new version of said template change in the Sandbox. Has no idea how to actually create tabs. Lou Cena (talk) 18:20, 11 February 2019 (EST)
SugarCookie420 (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS): The one who suggested using tabs in the first place. See his talk page for more. REQUESTING SIGNATURE AND/OR CLARIFICATION



Toomai (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS): disagrees with having the two images in the infobox without tabs. Neutral about the tabs. REQUESTING SIGNATURE AND/OR CLARIFICATION


Miles of SmashWiki (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · of SmashWiki WHOIS): disagrees with having two images in the infobox without tabs. Stance on tabs is unknown, as said proposition was suggested after he had given his stance on the issue. Could possibly be considered an opposer See Template talk:Infobox Character general. REQUESTING SIGNATURE AND/OR CLARIFICATION
Pokepub (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS): agrees with the notion that we should have major alternate costumes listed. Disagreed with the currently proposed notion of what actually is a major alternate costume previously, but current agreement on what qualifies as a major alternae costume is unknown due to not having commented here since. REQUESTING SIGNATURE AND/OR CLARIFICATION
AmoongussForLife (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS): agrees with the notion that major alternate costumes should be in the imagebox. Disagrees with the use of tabs. Could possibly be considered a supporter. REQUESTING SIGNATURE AND/OR CLARIFICATION

Thank you and sorry about earlier. Lou Cena (talk) 04:31, 12 February 2019 (EST)

As of right now I believe that having tabbed images in the infobox is a wikia exclusive extension, but in the case that it is not, it would need installed first. Serpent SKSig.png King 06:41, 12 February 2019 (EST)
It actually is not wikia exclusive, as it is on the regular wikipedia. Is this the installation you were talking about:

Lou Cena (talk) 21:01, 12 February 2019 (EST)

I’m really sorry for bringing this up again so soon, but what circumstances would allow a discussion to reopen.[edit]

Would the passage of time let me safely reopen a closed diacussion again? I know you said that they only ususally reopen if circumstances change, but I’m wondering about what would even qualify as a changed condition. For example, the symbol discussion would be a blockable offense for continuing on for the next few weeks, but would be acceptable after a month or two? For example, anybody who comments on the talk page will be blocked until the end of February, and then all discussion on it is to be ignored until March. I really don’t want to continue disruptive behaviour, but I’m finding the consensus even more inconsistent than how it was prior to the massive debate. I would bring up why I find it inconsistent, but that’s likely a bannable offense. I really don’t want to panic about it again by spamming talk pages again, so hopefully this will be the last time I do something like this on an admin’s talk page. I’m sorry that I brought this up again so soon. I just wanted some clearance on when I can safely reopen discussions.

The other reason why I brought this up is because the protection on that template ends in a few weeks, and although vehemently disgree with the current proposal, I felt like this is still worth looking into again as long as parroting arguements were to be ignored, especially since nobody had actually vandalized the template. Lou Cena (talk) 03:27, 14 February 2019 (EST)

A discussion should only be reopened if one of the following are true:
  1. circumstances regarding the outcome have changed
  2. a significant portion of the userbase is different from the original discussion

What I'm doing[edit]

In Talk: Wolf (SSBU), Omega Tyrant wished for all notable player sections to be removed because it's still too early, and that sections are being crowded with unknown players. Since we haven't reached a full consensus on what to do (but it's pretty much there - the notable players section should be removed), I decided to shave off most "unnotable" players, those who contributed greatly to the character. Those sections will most likely still get removed in the end, so I decided to go ahead. That's why I removed the notable players section from Jigglypuff. SugarCookie 420 15:16, 17 February 2019 (EST)

I don't necessarily disagree, but there needs to be a proper discussion first before we mass remove all of it. Serpent SKSig.png King 15:32, 17 February 2019 (EST)
That's fine, I'll wait for some more responses on Wolf's talk page. I'll stop what I'm doing until a consensus is reached. SugarCookie 420 15:44, 17 February 2019 (EST)

I need those two redirects deleted to move the pages they link to over.[edit]

I thought that was obvious. So long as Multi-Man Smash and Cruel Smash still exist as redirects, I can't move the actual pages over to those names. They're the only two pages left to move over, as 10-Man, 100-Man, 3-Minute, 15-Minute, Rival, and Endless have all been moved from "mode" to "Smash". VinSymbol.pngVinLAURiA (talk) 17:43, 17 February 2019 (EST)

You're moving redirects? Serpent SKSig.png King 18:14, 17 February 2019 (EST)
No, I need the redirects that currently exist at "Multi-Man Smash" and "Cruel Smash" deleted so that I can move the pages that are currently at "Multi-Man mode" and "Cruel mode" over to those spots. Since something already exists as the "Smash" spots (even if they're technically just redirects to the "mode" spots), it's not letting me make the move.
