Your comment here is not proper use for talk pages. Please read SW:TALK. Thanks! SugarCookie 420 12:45, 22 February 2019 (EST)

How come you undid this?[edit]

There was a tag that said that the trivia was too long, so I removed a bunch of uninteresting, specific, or redundant trivia. How come you undid this? Lou Cena (talk) 15:07, July 13, 2019 (EDT)

Thanks for asking Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 18:22, July 13, 2019 (EDT)

A bit of advice[edit]

Please do not take this as a warning or a harsh critique, as I am just a user who's just checking out the wiki. It seems that you edit your user page a lot and through policy SW:USER, that's a tad bit stricted, especially since the wiki is in a red zone and needs a lot of work on the mainspace. I've looked through your contributions and you've done a bit, but a lot of your edits have been on your user page. I also suggest doing your edits one at a time or editing your user page every so often as administrators will be more tough with the policy. Anyways, that's all I wanted to say, have a good day and cheers. Eletro (talk) 18:10, June 21, 2019 (EDT) Eletro (talk) 18:10, June 21, 2019 (EDT)

Repeat pages[edit]

Make sure to check that a page you make already exists on the wiki. For example, Battle Arena already exists. Thanks! CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 11:28, August 3, 2019 (EDT)

It’s because I thought the page didn’t exist Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 23:13, August 4, 2019 (EDT)


I am here to tell that the concept article belongs to me, before which you had copy-and-pasted as a new page 2 days before my account was ever usable. Why did you do it though? User:DreaM 15:53, August 24, 2019 (EST)

I made a mistake when I did the page. I thought the concept article was done. And also thanks for reminding me. User:Thegameandwatch

In future please try to be more careful. If you can see that a user is working on an article, don't just copy their work and make the article yourself. That's pretty blatantly plagiarism, even if it doesn't technically violate policy (which suggests an amendment might be necessary). Alex the Jigglypuff trainer 16:05, August 24, 2019 (EDT)

Ok I will not make this mistake again user:Thegameandwatch

I'm going to have the concept article back which I believe you should remove the page, so I can fill in the categories you didn't include such as the "Article in incomplete sections" from the plagiarism you've done, but I'll forgive you for today. User:DreaM

Thanks Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 16:20, August 24, 2019 (EDT)

Akira Yuki images[edit]

Is there any specific reason that you've reinstated these images? Edits made to re-add images that were previously candidates for deletion should preferably state a reason for the reversion, either within the edit summary or on the talk page. Failure to bring reasoning to these edits puts them at risk of being reverted without notice. NokiiSig.png Nokii — 10:16, September 4, 2019 (EDT)

Same goes with the Gen I Pokemon images. Thegameandwatch, it's important to read edit summaries left by other users, since they explain why a particular change (such as removing an image) was made. If you undo their edits without leaving a reason, then it is not constructive. If you disagree with the changes, then it is better to discuss on an article's talk page before reverting in order to avoid a potential edit war. --PeabodySam (talk) 09:52, September 7, 2019 (EDT)
This keeps happening, even after already being warned about it by myself and Nokii. You can't keep reverting edits without reason; it's not constructive to this wiki. If you don't understand why an edit was made, then please read the edit summaries first; in the case of Mechakoopa, I explained in my edit summary that the Super Mario World artwork is low quality and the New Super Mario Bros. artwork is a slightly closer match to the design used in Smash (i.e. the windup key is black). --PeabodySam (talk) 09:53, October 12, 2019 (EDT)
I will try not to do it again and if it happens, I will discuss it in the talk pages Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 11:34, October 12, 2019 (EDT)

Low effort pages and notability[edit]

In the future, please tag low effort pages for speedy delete. The notability tag is only for those who have their notability in question, and the ones you tagged are PR'd, which counts as notability. CookiesCnC Signature.pngCreme 23:58, November 28, 2019 (EST)

Removing tags[edit]

Instead of removing the tag and edit warring, can you please use the talk page instead? Thank you, it would mean a lot. 04:46, January 11, 2020 (EST)

If you want List of Rumors to be renamed to “Rumor”, do NOT remove the tag on Leak. Stop doing that. I know this isn’t your first time doing this. 16:43, February 9, 2020 (EST)

Hi so I noticed you often remove tags because you'd rather the change not be made. To clarify, as several IPs mentioned, you were continuesly removing the move tag from Leak because you wanted List of rumors to be moved instead. Now first this is in violation of SW:WAR, and second the consensus hasn't been reached for which page should be moved. Instead, use the article's talk page to discuss your reasonings for which action that should be taken, and also to support your side you may want to give more thorough reasonings other than just "I think". Thank you 001Toad.jpg OmegαToαd the Toαd Wαrrior (BUP) 09:57, March 9, 2020 (EDT)

Different page, same issue. Also, the page was moved without discussion. 03:22, April 23, 2020 (EDT)

The problem is that changing the page's name again wasn't important and the discussion hasn't discussed since early April. Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 03:29, April 23, 2020 (EDT)

Read the message I put on the talk page. The page was initially moved without a discussion. I understand it's a minor thing but a consensus was not reached before the move. 001Toad.jpg OmegαToαd64the Best Kαrter 04:10, April 23, 2020 (EDT)

I removed it because I thought the name change was 100 percent agreed on Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 07:00, April 23, 2020 (EDT)

Reminder of this. 001Toad.jpg OmegαToαd64the Best Kαrter 18:28, May 13, 2020 (EDT)

Your competitive Byleth edit[edit]

Hi! Thank you for your contributions. But I like to ask you more about your reasoning for removing a big part of Byleth’s paragraph talking about them in competitive play. What makes you think it’s not a good time to mention player thoughts? SonDanielSonDanielSignatureHead1.pngSonDanielSignatureHead2.png (talk page) 14:17, April 26, 2020 (EDT)

I removed it because Byleth viability was significantly affected by COVID 19 and he didn't have many pro players using him in live tournaments (when it wasn't online) with only having one permanent player who isn't even a top professional. so I could give a reason because I post it too early. Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 17:12, April 26, 2020 (EDT)
Hmm, okay. But just because a fighter does not have a permanent player who’s a top professional and doesn’t have much pro players playing the character, doesn’t mean the metagame history paragraph shouldn’t include other players’ thoughts and analyses. Those aforementioned things and how good the player who mained the character is, are unrelated. If you feel bad, I apologize. But I believe that all fighters-even completely identical clones—should have a detailed paragraph about how their competitive images had evolved to today’s metagame. I respect your reasoning, but only saying that Byleth’s viability is uncertain, is not good enough for our readers. They need thoughts and analyses as well to get a better picture. If either viability overall or thoughts of players aren’t available at the moments, we should leave the paragraph blank for now. Also, when replying, please start your comment with a colon.

This edit[edit]

You seem to have completely missed the point as to why I gave that image the deletion tag, so lemme give you a short summary:

It's not a matter of whether the image is used or not, it's a matter of whether the image should be kept or not.

I've written down my thoughts on the non-gaming media talk page, so I suggest giving that a read if you wanna understand my reasonings for the tag. SmashTurtlesSig1.pngSuperSmashTurtles of the Turtle TribeSmashTurtlesSig2.png 17:07, June 10, 2020 (EDT)

Because what you said, I undid the edit I did in the image. Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 17:13, June 10, 2020 (EDT)

This other edit[edit]

If character viability isn't important, wouldn't it make more sense to remove completely than hide it? 02:10, June 12, 2020 (EDT)

I'm gonna need to ask you, what makes character viability "unimportant" in competitive play? Ultimate possibly having the most balanced roster is notable considering how notorious Melee and Brawl were for their bad roster balance. We even point out that how terrible the roster balance is in Brawl, what makes it a problem for Ultimate? 001Toad.jpg OmegαToαd64 06:54, June 12, 2020 (EDT)

Hi how to add a custom signature[edit]

I dont know how to add one because I can't find a good template. Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 15:57, July 8, 2020 (EDT)

SW:SIG should help. S3AHAWK Signature icon 1.png S3AHAWK (talk)S3AHAWK signature icon 2.png 15:59, July 8, 2020 (EDT)
how to add with image because the templates have no images Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 16:00, July 8, 2020 (EDT)
You can go to this category and save the image by drag an dropping it onto the computer, reupload the image as "Thegameandwatch signature icon" and to add it to the signature use [[File:Thegameandwatch_signature_icon]] S3AHAWK Signature icon 1.png S3AHAWK (talk)S3AHAWK signature icon 2.png 16:08, July 8, 2020 (EDT)
Ok Thanks Thegameandwatch Thegameandwatch signature icon.png The Nerd 16:09, July 8, 2020 (EDT)
Also gonna reccomend going to preferences, and enabeling "Treat signature as wikitext". S3AHAWK Signature icon 1.png S3AHAWK (talk)S3AHAWK signature icon 2.png 16:14, July 8, 2020 (EDT)
It seems your new signature links to the wrong talk page, "User talk:Example" instead of "User talk:Thegameandwatch". You may want to change that. Also you don't need to retroactively change your old signature, it just ends up spamming Special:RecentChanges. --CanvasK (talk) 17:08, July 8, 2020 (EDT)

Byleth's "A-pose"[edit]

No offence, but how do you even know that both Byleth genders (I think) have an A-pose? The only other character with that (who does have a source that confirms that) is Terry. Therefore, Byleth doesn't have a source confirming that s/he has an A-pose. SafariKid2 (talk) 20:57, November 23, 2020 (EST)

Here is (male) Byleth in an A-pose [1]. --CanvasK (talk) 18:08, November 28, 2020 (EST)


Since the last time this was discussed, you have yet again reverted a good faith revision without a summary, this time with your revert here. Again, unless you are reverting a clear case of vandalism, you should always state a proper reason for your reversion.

As for the edit in question, it is perfectly acceptable to refer to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U as "Super Smash Bros. 4", and is in fact named this way on virtually every page including both games in section titles and elsewhere, including the List of rumors page, hence the change to the related List of leaks page. Why did you change this? NokiiSig.png Nokii — 21:46, December 16, 2020 (EST)
