I don't think its necessary to have an extra 30 or so articles on the other characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I think Link, Samus and Kirby should have their own pages, because of their cameos in Mario games, and Mario's cameos in theirs. But Marth, Captain Falcon, and Lucas? I simply don't view that as necessary. My recommendation is that we have a brief bio in the SSBB article and no more. Thoughts? --- Count Caterpie 04:45, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 16:16, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

I'm neutral. If we list all the characters on the same page, it will avoid excess; but too many will cause a ridiculous amount of lag, which isn't exactly what we need. I suggest we have one large article other than Super Smash Bros. Brawl - such as, for example, List of characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl - that we have for all of the characters in the game. I agree that all the characters having their own articles is excessive, but I think that having them all on Super Smash Bros. Brawl will cause slowdown, and am therefore strongly against the suggested proposal.

I think that Launch's proposal of a catch all character page would work best. Shall we take it to a vote? (And I mean everyone, not just us three) --- Count Caterpie 22:33, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Poll expires in 6 days.

In regards to the Super Smash Bros characters, should we..

The poll was created at 22:33 on June 10, 2010, and so far 7 people voted. You can vote too!
I don't like the idea of a poll. Votes should be backed by reason. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 23:24, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, and it's far easier. I've voted; has Count Caterpie and MarioGalaxy2433g5?--THE TROLL Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales Thetalktemplate TTT 20:16, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
I voted, but I say that a poll isn't the right way to go. Votes should be backed by reason. A poll doesn't show the reason behind your choice. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 14:00, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Votes should be backed by reason, but the idea of having a poll makes it far easier. I notice at least two other editors have voted, so I'm pretty sure that's a consensus.
But it doesn't prevent you from voting twice. It seems I can vote again. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 16:39, June 12, 2010 (UTC)
If you feel the poll isn't the way to go, MG, then I recommend you think up something else before the six days expire. Seriously - Count Caterpie 16:47, June 12, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I am pretty sure I know the outcome by now, so there is no sense in doing it otherwise. In the future though, I'd like to see a more discussion based vote. One well reasoned no should always be able to override several hasty yes's. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 14:03, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
I think the poll is fine for this, but some things need to be supported by reasons. Super duh... AlpacaDoggie Mask 17:46, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Understandable MG. Alright guys, this is policy now. Get on it! - Count Caterpie 02:29, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
