What's the point of this Wiki?

The game isn't even out yet, is this supposed to be some sort of fanon Wiki? If so, there's already a fanon Smash Bros. Wiki on Wikia. Is this Wiki supposed to be factual? If so, besides the game not even being out yet, there's no real information on the game available. And even then, there are other Smash Bros Wikis out there, such as the real SmashWiki and its Wiki Zombie counterpart on Wikia. Is this supposed to be a speculation and rumor Wiki? If so, you have literally no useful information here, that not only spreads misinformation and will be a hive for trolls and the like, but its "information" will be completely invalidated once SSB4 does come out.

The Point
The point of this is to get our most wanted Smashers out there and hope that Sakurai uses at least some of them. Most of the entries are just because, Like the Power Rangers and Ben 10. Others are serious suggestions like Krystal and Little Mac, among other video game characters that appeared on Nintendo Consoles.
That's a terrible idea, the idea that Sakurai will stumble upon a random english Wiki and take ideas from it is ludicrous, and like I pointed out, the entire purpose of the Wiki will be invalidated once SSB4 does come out.

So is anyone else going to respond to my query? Omega Tyrant (talk) 07:27, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'll also copy and post this from my talk page explaining why this Wiki should be deleted:

"This Wiki shouldn't even exist.

  • One, game developers don't take unsolicited ideas from fans.
  • Two, even if they did, what is here is haphazard, terrible and incomplete (you guys do know characters have more than just specials moves and final smashes?), and has so much unrealistic crap in it (like the aforementioned tv characters) that no one outside the Wiki will actually take it seriously.
  • Three, Sakurai isn't fluent in English, so even if he did stumble upon this Wiki somehow, he wouldn't even be able to read its content (nor would he actually probably care).

There's no point to this Wiki, it has no chance at succeeding at its "goal" to get characters into SSB4, and it'll become completely invalidated once SSB4 does come out. Additionally, this Wiki existing will only serve to confuse readers and potentially take away traffic from the other Smash Bros Wikis, that actually have legitimate information with a real purpose and goal."

I also have to question if the active userbase actually knows what a Wiki is for. They're supposed to be online encyclopedias with legitimate information, not a massive "wish list" for an upcoming video game. Omega Tyrant (talk) 17:09, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

When I first got here, I treated this wiki as purely a fanon wiki, since I never actually checked out the regular Smash fanon wiki. I even created a page using my sock. Now, I see differently. The wiki attempted to set itself up as a factual wiki, obviously failing in that regard. If the wiki is to continue from its recent string of vandalism, I feel it should be renamed as a fanon wiki, which should at least be tolerable. However, the odds of such a renaming happening are probably almost as unlikely as Gravity Falls characters being in the next game, as God alone know when the only admin last edited. 123JamesHeart 22:00, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
The Wiki should just be deleted, there's already a fanon Smash Bros. Wiki on Wikia, so turning this into a fanon Wiki will result in two Wikis with a huge amount of overlapping content. Omega Tyrant (talk) 14:11, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
Fair point. I just skimmed the actual Smash Fanon wiki, and they put a lot more thought into their characters, actually including smash attacks and other attacks, not just mentioning special moves like this wiki does. So anybody who's interested in this wiki for the fanon, which is likely its entire userbase (unless people actually believe the get-your-ideas-to-Sakurai crap), should just go there.

(Finally, signs of someone not having lost all of his brain cells yet)
Because this wiki only offers false information. This shouldn't be a wiki. If you want to make suggestions for SSB4, why not make a forum, instead of those poorly written articles which are mostly only half a sentence long.

admin halp

Could an admin remove the category "Stupid Characters"? I feel like the name for this article is unfitting for it's purpose. Creating a category called "Unlikely Characters" would be better. Fr3sh78212 (talk) 00:19, July 11, 2013 (UTC)fr3sh78212

There are no fucking admins here, otherwise every character in that category would already be deleted and the retards who created them banned. Retro Hotdog 14:34, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
Damn, I guess this wiki's abandoned then. fuck this i'm out Fr3sh78212 (talk) 18:25, July 15, 2013 (UTC)fr3sh78212


What happens after the game is released and none of the characters here have made it in? 123JamesHeart 18:26, August 9, 2013 (UTC)

I now know what is to make totally futile efforts in the face of overwhelming stupid. I no longer know nor care if this is supposed to be taken seriously. I am simply filled with unending hatred for all that is, all that was, and all that ever shall be. I award this Wiki no points, and may God have mercy on the souls of all involved in it.

I don't know about you,...

...but to me, Macklemore seems like a longshot. Even if he were a video game character, he only started being relevant last year, after Smash 4 began development. He doesn't seem likely. In fact, a lot of characters don't seem likely at all. I tried clearing out the unconfirmed pages a while ago; this deleted template is a result of that help. To everyone who's been adding useless crap: when the game comes out, are you going to help clear this wiki of everything that didn't actually make the cut, or are you just going to bail and leave this place to rot like I know it will? 123JamesHeart 02:02, February 18, 2014 (UTC)

He has a good point people. Look at all the crap you guys made. The characters you guys surggested for getting into SSB4, true it is wanting to have but they are highly unlikely to be in the game and Sakurai won't really pay any attention to this site's character surggestions either. .....fromsmashwiki (talk) 05:45, February 22, 2014 (UTC)

Message to creators of this wiki: You idiots do realize none of these characters will make it in right? Go to hell btw to creator of this wiki and active users. May the Wikia team destroy it some,day and make f*cking reatrds realize that you waste your life making these pointless characters and MACKELMORE????????????? wtf is wrong with you???????????

In light of the recent attempted deletions of the above criticism...

Do note that a lot of what we say is an opinion, but we have given arguments supporting our opinion that this wiki needs a drastic change. If you disagree, and you probably do, please defend your opinion rather than attempting to silence us, as the latter basically tells us that you know we're right. 123JamesHeart 21:31, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

The end of the wiki

Can you shut down this wiki?

1st reason: SSB4 has been released it's been a long time.

2nd reason: You don't even know that your ideas are soooooooooooooooo stupid and will never be exhaused.

I'm not even going to sign that post anyway.

Change the title to SSB5

Why not change the title of this wiki to SSB5 Wiki? I agree with the previous comment but maybe if SSB5 does become real it can be up. SmashFan48 (talk) 13:46, April 7, 2016 (UTC)
