  • Because it seems like we cannot agree on a certain matter, I would like to take the topic here. Here are my main reasons for why there are four quotation marks.

    1) First, here are some screenshots proving that there are indeed two sets and not one.

    • I took this one on my computer
    • I took this one on my phone
    • If those two weren't enough, I went ahead and took a picture with my phone on the 3DS

    As you can see, every single picture depicts that Fishing Rod is in between two sets of quotation marks. Why you want to add in one set baffles me as I cannot fathom where you could possibly only see one set.

    2) Second, everything on the blog, typos and all, should be copy and pasted from there onto the wiki. As a wiki, we are to review all necessary information we deem valuable and record it onto here. Information from the Smash Blog should therefore be preserved along with every bit of punctuation, sentence, and typos. Now, I know we are not official, we are not forced to record everything, but we are still a wiki nonetheless who uses references from official sources. In this case, the official source has two sets of quotation marks. Additionally, the template containing the info about the Blog is a Quote Template meaning we are to rewrite each word, each punctuation, and each typo from the original source because we are, well, quoting it. If we were to change anything from a quote for whatever reason, it should be in brackets, therefore if you want to change it to one set, you must type: ["Fishing Rod,"]. But, as it is not one set, there are no need for brackets and the quote should look,,,clean.

    3) Finally, it's a simple copy and paste, dude. Just highlight over it and paste it all you'll get two sets. I'll do it right now: ""Fishing Rod,"". (Obviously I cannot prove I actually did it, but seeing as how I'm serious with this trivial matter, I'm petty enough to actually do it.)

    If you have any evidence to show that there aren't four quotation marks, I would love to see it. Otherwise, please stop reverting it back to one set. Thank you.

    • One set instead of two makes more logical sense as I see it. Besides, I just copy it from the main page of the website, not the Blog archive.

    • I, too copied it from the website and got two sets. To be clear, we are talking about this website, right?

    • The edit I did was from the Australian version of the site.

    • Ah, that's the problem. We've been using the US version for all the quotes. Now that we know the two websites are different, please use the US website for quotes as we already have all those. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

  • From now on, I think I should be left in charge of including quotes from the Smash Blog that are related to Fighters. Why? Two things: 1: I did this job for the past month or so and 2: I was caught off guard by the Blog posting about Little Mac and the post being edited into his page (It wasn’t on the Australian version of the site). Aye or Nay?

    • Well, this is a wiki where anyone can edit so you can't claim to be in charge of a certain article or certain contribution, not even admins and Wikia Staff. You're still welcome to add them in, however, anyone else can still add them before you do.

    • Then it’s a “Nay”, isn’t it, DoomDemon82?
