Talk:List of Sammer Guy quotes

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

I'm wondering about the best way to format this page. Each Sammer Guy has the same set of quotes (a pre-battle quote, a quote upon being defeated, and a post-battle quote), so I thought we could do some sort of chart/table rather than a list. Any ideas on how to design it?

==Sammer Guy==
;Pre-Battle Quote
"quote"
;Defeat Quote
"quote"
;Post-Battle Quote
"quote"
Use of the word "quote" in the subject headers is optional, but a standard list is what immediately came to mind. As for a chart:
Sammer Guy Pre-Battle Quote Defeat Quote Post-Battle Quote
Name Quote Quote Quote
Name Quote Quote Quote
Name Quote Quote Quote
Name Quote Quote Quote
etc. etc. etc. Doesn't need to be fancy. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:40, 13 March 2018 (EDT)
This looks good, but their quotes are rather long. Will this span the entire width of the screen?

Depends. Words are able to wrap, so the quotes should automatically adjust the chart to the appropriate size. Shouldn't go beyond screen width. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:23, 13 March 2018 (EDT)
Example:
Sammer Guy Pre-Battle Quote Defeat Quote Post-Battle Quote
Really Really Long Name Guy "Hey, this is a quote I'm supposed to say before the battle begins! It's supposed to be really long! Ready to fight?" "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. The longer the word, the harder to wrap!" "Hey, good job, man. Gotta say, that really made me think about the way I fight. Next time you show, I'll beat you for sure!"
Guy "Sup." "Bummer." "Good game."

I was saying that I want it to span the entire screen. If the columns are too thin, the quote is kinda hard to read.
