It only goes up to 3.0.0, but I'm too lazy to do it myself.
What's on your mind?
There are some stages that changed their names in Ultimate, the thing is, should we rename those stages? For example, changing 64's Yoshi's Island name into Super Happy Tree, or Brawl's Mario Circuit into 8-Figure Circuit, etc.
Hey everybody I'm Lemonz and I'd like to submit my request to be a Content Moderator. I've helped this wiki by cleaning pages up, updating every single character page, inspecting every edit made that I see on the wiki activity page, and answering to my best knowledge Smash Bros. questions on the Discussions page. With the Content Moderator tools I'd be able to delete the many troll pages made, I'd rollback bad edits that I couldn't before, and update the locked pages; for example the Monthly Poll hasn't been updated since before Ultimate came out. Thanks to all of you, and I hope I can ask for your full support.
For those who don't know (who wouldn't at this point), some copies of Smash Ultimate were released earlier than the intended launch date of the game on December 7th of this year. Information about the game has been leaking as a result of this, and some of the leaked information has been added to this Wiki. Of course, with leaks come rumors, and with rumors come misinformation. The information that has already been added to the Wiki will stay, but until the game officially releases on December 7th, the administration team asks that editors refrain from adding leaked information to any pages.
All right, I think a revision of the Discussion feature guidelines is in order. If you use the Discussions feature, please, leave a response on this forum and tell me your thoughts on how things should be run on the Discussions feature, and after some discussion on the issue, we can make some changes so that it is an enjoyable place for the community to come together and share our experiences with this game and otherwise.
These are the current guidelines:
1. Be nice and treat people with respect. Keep discussions civil and be open-minded about differing opinions.
2. Threads and posts that solicit upvotes will be deleted.
3. Off-topic conversations will be deleted.
4. Impersonation of other users or famous people will not be tolerated. If you have been banned and return on a new account, your posts will be deleted and your new account(s) will be banned.
5. Spamming, trolling, or vandalizing of any kind will be deleted and will lead to your account being banned.
6. Ask for help. Notice something that doesn't seem right? Or do you just have a question? Contact Wikia Staff through "Give feedback" on the Settings screen.
Personally I think numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 can stay. I think 3 requires revision to allow for more loose conversation, but still require the deletion of threads that become grossly off-topic, at the moderator's discretion. These are just my thoughts though; I'd very much like to hear yours. Thanks!
It has come to my attention that the Smash 4 Metagame has developed to the point where we should have match-up data on the respective character pages. I'd also like to add frame data to the moveset sections of the character pages as well as the Special Move pages. The easiest way I can think of to acquire this information is to go to the respective character Discords to receive critique and advice from people who know the characters well.
Additionally, many of the moveset sections on character pages look differently from others, whether it be damage percentages being in different places, certain words being bold where others are not, etc.
I think it would be best to find a standardized format for these moveset sections. The name of the move should be in bold and the description of the move kept concise and clear. The damage percentage at the end should be in bold, with no punctuation after the % sign. Moves should be divided up into sections: Ground Attacks, Aerial Attacks, Throws, and Special Moves. Special Moves section should just have the table, which all the pages already have. The Ground Attacks section should have subsections: Normal Attacks (includes jab, tilts, and dash attack), Smash Attacks, and Other Attacks (includes ledge attacks and get-up attacks).
I ask for the active editors on the Wiki to help me in doing this. Thank you and keep on smashing!

For those of you not familiar with Discussions, they're a new-ish wiki setup allowing for communication between users. Sort of like a combination between blogs and forums, but with a more informal air to them. You can get to Discussions through this link, and access it anytime either through the blue navigation bar (under "Helpful pages" right next to blogs) or at the bottom of any article. Also, be sure to read the Discussions Guidelines before posting.
I hope everyone has a nice winter break!
I am excited to announce that Discussions is now enabled for your community and in the community app!
You can find Discussions here. This “web” version also works well in your mobile device’s web browser, so if you’re on the go, you can still use the link above. Or, jump into the app, if you have that installed. Discussions is a great way to grow your community by bringing in users who only know about the app!
You can read more about how Discussions works on the help page. Admins and Discussions Moderators automatically have all of the moderation options. As you start to get participation from app users (a few posts have already come in!), keep an eye out for good moderator candidates. I can help you contact them as well (sometimes reaching out can be tough since they may not get Wall/talk notifications).
I encourage you to think about ways to promote wiki editing to the app & Discussions users. For example, if you have a page that lists your current projects, you can do a post every now and then that links to that page. And also think about how you can help foster high quality Discussions, by posting questions and prompts, running polls/surveys, and anything else you can think of.
We’ve just completed work on a great new moderation tool - the ability for any user to "report" a post so it will be reviewed by a moderator or admin. This feature will be coming to the Community App in an update at the end of this month. Next week we will also be adding the option for mods and admins to "lock" threads and prevent further replies.
Thanks so much for being willing to be an early adopter on this feature. Please use this thread for any questions, ideas and feedback. We want to hear from you and learn more about how you want to use this feature! We’ve got lots more work to do and I’ll be updating you as new additions come along.
So it's Valentines Day weekend and what better way to celebrate then to spread a little love through our site. Let's all use this thread to show our appreciation towards Sakurai, Nintendo, Banda Namco, Wikia, the Admins, and our fellow users.
There was recently a change in moveset templates(not all pages were affected). Only one or two people have been working on them, so all who can help speed up the process who want to help should help. Also, because only a few people worked on these changes, they may have left some mistakes(I've already edited a few). Also, there are a lot of red links on unfrequented pages, so we should edit those out, and a lot of pages that should have infoboxes don't have them. I recommend some changes to the way we edit and update pages, to maximize efficiency.
The new game footers are brought to you by Encyclopedia Gamia and our very own Games Hub. The basic goal is simple: draw together Wikia communities in one location that enjoy the same genres and hopefully expose them to some new games and communities they might be interested in. Our secondary goal is to try and connect editors looking for help with members and administrators from other wikias who are interested in helping them out, whether it be with content, technical knowledge, or insight gleaned from running a community.
If you haven't already been approached, feel free to include your site in the submission section below in the genre you feel is most appropriate for the game you cover. Note that, with rare exception, a game should only be placed in one footer.
Here are some other things to consider:
- A member or members of the site should be willing to help those that might ask for assistance in creating their own wikia. Obviously this is at member discretion; members aren't absolutely required to answer every request for help, nor should they if the query is unrealistic and/or no one has the know-how.
- Any site participating in the footer will have a page created on the Games Hub for their franchise for more exposure. Members are encouraged to double-check this entry once it is live and may take ownership of the page.
- Any site participating in the footer will have each individual game in their franchise created on Encyclopedia Gamia for more exposure. Members are encouraged to double-check these entries once they are live and may take ownership of the pages.
- Backgrounds are transparent and links/text are set to match the site's settings.
- The new footers are mobile-friendly.
- Though intended to stretch the entire width of a main page, the footer can also fit into the left rail, if so desired.
In most cases a game can fit into multiple categories, so the best should be chosen when possible that most closely matches the genre. Rogue-like games, for instance, aren't included because many games feature stealth elements. Instead, they can be found within the Action-Adventure footer.
Should the situation arise where another footer is potentially needed, one may be created, but only if 1) the genre can't be included in any other category and 2) there are enough games for the footer.
For footers that were created and maintained by Wikia staff, these will be replaced with the new footers.
Footers created by users will not be touched at this time.
1) We will be running a Smashpedia Twitter account shortly!
2 and the more important one) DerpyDoodle has been promoted to bureaucrat, making him the second one on this wiki!
Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo has passed at age 55. He was directly involved with Mr. Sakurai in the development of the first Smash Brothers game.
He will be missed.
I'd like to propose an idea to enrich the fighter's profiles. How about adding information such as Dash Speed, Air Speed, Weight, and other similar things in the fighters' profile box? This would save people some time on looking for specific stats (for example where X character is ranked on Y stat) as well giving a more detailed profile. What do you guys think?
Also... How does one edit the template of the Info Box to add those? I tried but it's not showing up.
Basically, two things would face off for a certain amount of time, and users could vote for which one they liked, and at the end the thing with the most votes would win.
I've been testing out a template for this, and here's a test version of what it could look like:
|Battle lasts until|
July 2, 2015
|Two old foes face off once again! Who is better?||WINNER!|
Votes for Mario
Votes for Bowser
Keep in mind that this is only a test and it's not gonna happen unless you voice your support. So, what do you think of this? Any changes you think should be made?
So Wikia put out an official Smashpedia app for both Android and iOS devices.
This is apparently all of Smashpedia's pages, photos, and videos (no forums, chat, message wall, and all that stuff) in an app that will be updated every few weeks to showcase the changes made (so it's not automatically updated).
I had no clue this was a thing until I was browsing the app store last night, really cool that Wikia made an app for the site and that it's free.
Currently I have a new black more transparent version of Smashpedia on along with a new background I made. Give me your opinions as to if we should use this black design or use the old white design.
The new background will remain if we decide to use the white version however it won't have the blue/red things on the side and will instead be like the previous background.
So navigate the site, mess around with it, and then come back and decide what one you would like. Whatever one has the most positive votes will remain.
Another tournament, yay.
- 3 Stock
- No time

Time and Place
3DS: Saturday April 25, 2015 at 2:00 PM (est)
Wii U: Saturday April 25, 2015 at 4:00 PM (est)
Wii U: Sunday April 26, 2015 at 12:00 PM (est)
3DS: Sunday April 26, 2015 at 6:00 PM (est)
So we will be having each tournament at two times and two days.
Anyway you can select to be apart of Tournament #1 (Saturday 3DS), Tournament #2 (Saturday Wii U), Tournament #3 (Sunday Wii U), and Tournament #4 (Sunday 3DS) or any mix of them.
So we will have four winners (both 3DS tournaments and both Wii U tournaments) who will compete the following Saturday (May 3, 2015) in a 1 v 1 fight (3DS vs. 3DS and Wii U vs. Wii U) for the titles of Wii U Champion and 3DS Champion.
I'll be competing in both Wii U versions (even though I play Smash 3DS but I like the Wii U version more).
Now instead of posting your Nintendo Network ID and Friend Code here, we will be on chat during/before the tournament where we select from the list of people who post on this thread saying what tournaments they will participate in, pair them up, then whenever they come on the two fights exchange ID's and Friend Codes using the private messaging system on chat.
Make sure you show up and don't forget. Good luck!
No holding back
