Where to get the stats[edit]

I'll continue to do the pictures of the weapons, but for everyone else doing work on this article, here's a video that shows off all the weapons and their stats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2QxEPoRSKU --EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 14:33, 14 September 2017 (EDT)

Trivia section[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

place with in-game information 3-1-7-1-5-0

That trivia section is long. It also doesn't even seem to be trivia, as it's information that's about the weapons themselves (and some are rather pointless. "The Luigi's Longshot weapon is based on the design of Luigi, the character that can use said weapon." ???). I'm told there was talk (on Discord) about integrating the information into the tables themselves, but how would that work? Using the Matter Splatter weapon as the example, here's some suggestions (using "Reference" as the stand-in word, but that can be changed to something else if needed):

Option 1 (Stick reference on the end)
Mario's Blasters
Blaster Description Price Hit Damage Super Effect Range Cover Damage Reference
Enemy-specific Bonus Damage Chance
MRKB Matter Splatter.png
Matter Splatter
Dispatch your foes with the hot-blooded brilliance and passion of an abstract expressionist. 700 55-65 85 (Honey) 30% 10 Cells (Medium) LOW This weapon shares the same name as a galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy.

Just tag the information on the end. Probably my preferred choice. It will make the already lengthy table lengthier, but that's fine by me.

Option 2 (Place reference on bottom of section)
Mario's Blasters
Blaster Description Price Hit Damage Super Effect Range Cover Damage
Enemy-specific Bonus Damage Chance
MRKB Matter Splatter.png
Matter Splatter
Dispatch your foes with the hot-blooded brilliance and passion of an abstract expressionist. 700 55-65 85 (Honey) 30% 10 Cells (Medium) LOW
Reference: This weapon shares the same name as a galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy.

Place the information on the bottom, between the different weapons. Will look clunky, so not preferred, but still better than what we have already.

Option 3 (Place with in game information)
Mario's Blasters
Blaster Description Price Hit Damage Super Effect Range Cover Damage
Enemy-specific Bonus Damage Chance
MRKB Matter Splatter.png
Matter Splatter
Dispatch your foes with the hot-blooded brilliance and passion of an abstract expressionist.

Reference: This weapon shares the same name as a galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy.

700 55-65 85 (Honey) 30% 10 Cells (Medium) LOW

Place the bit below the in game information. Looks odd, but saves room.

Option 4 (Eldritchdraaks's idea)

See comment from Eldritchdraaks.

Option 5 (Mister Wu's Idea)

See comment from Mister Wu.

Option 6 (Do nothing)

There's nothing terribly wrong with the current list, it's just long and scattered.

Proposer: Alex95 (talk)
Deadline: November 22nd, 2017, 23:59 GMT

Option 1[edit]

  1. Alex95 (talk) - Preferred choice.
  2. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) Per proposal.
  3. BBQ Turtle (talk) I think this option is probably the best, it prevents confusion with any in game descriptions, and although there will be empty sections, there already are some so it wouldn't make much difference.

Option 2[edit]

  1. Chat Man (talk) I doubt this will win but, Per Proposal

Option 3[edit]

  1. Alex95 (talk) - Second choice.
  2. Baby Luigi (talk) I think that's the cleanest choice, because I don't think all weapons have a reference. Too many entries would suffer from inconsistent or empty sections with all of the rest. Option one is also a very miserable choice for narrower screen-computers: we want to avoid side scrolling as much as possible.
  3. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per proposal.
  4. Eldritchdraaks (talk) Per proposal
  5. Waluigi Time (talk) Per all.
  6. Chat Man (talk) Per Baby Luigi
  7. LuigiMaster123 (talk) This seems like the easiest and most logical choice. Per all.

Option 4[edit]

  1. Eldritchdraaks (talk) - per comment

Option 5[edit]

  1. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) Mister Wu's idea looks promising.
  2. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per proposal.
  3. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - Per all. This keeps the description and notes separate and also allows notes other than references to be added.
  4. Alex95 (talk) - I'll root for this one, too.
  5. Chat Man (talk) Per all

Option 6[edit]

Comments[edit]

The list could remain long as it is, but we could use the ref tag to link them to the bottom of the page for easier sorting.

Mario's Blasters
Blaster Description Price Hit Damage Super Effect Range Cover Damage
Enemy-specific Bonus Damage Chance

Matter Splatter[1]

  1. ^ This weapon shares the same name as a galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy.

@Baby Luigi: For the resolution thing, the table will remain the same size anyway. I have a pretty small monitor, and it's fitting. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:03, 8 November 2017 (EST)

The preceding unsigned comment was added by Astro-Lanceur (talk).

I'm assuming that's what you want to happen? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:10, 8 November 2017 (EST)

What do you think about this? (Edited version, it had reference before in place of notes)

Mario's Blasters
Blaster Description and notes (if applicable) Price Hit Damage Super Effect Range Cover Damage
Enemy-specific Bonus Damage Chance
MRKB Matter Splatter.png
Matter Splatter
Dispatch your foes with the hot-blooded brilliance and passion of an abstract expressionist. 700 55-65 85 (Honey) 30% 10 Cells (Medium) LOW
This weapon shares the same name as a galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy.

This way we could have a cleaner separation between description and reference while using just a single row when only the description is needed.--Mister Wu (talk) 08:03, 9 November 2017 (EST)

I think the word we're looking for is Notes, not Reference.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 09:39, 9 November 2017 (EST)

We can also put notes, in the example given it was references, but probably notes is more appropriate indeed.--Mister Wu (talk) 09:44, 9 November 2017 (EST)
Notes would work better. Splitting option 4 to accommodate the two suggestions (and moving votes accordingly), and I'll cap it here. Don't want there to be too many requests for how this should be done :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:53, 9 November 2017 (EST)
I updated the table with notes in place of references, in case please tell me if there are other correction on the text to be made.--Mister Wu (talk) 11:05, 9 November 2017 (EST)

I still really hate the extra cell for references/notes in Mister Wu's option. It's going to have mighty, gaping inconsistencies with the rest of the list in this article, and I think it's harder to navigate and find information you want that way. I still think Option 3 and Option 4 are the best routes to take, as they don't really mess around with the overall presentation by having an inconsistent number of cells per row. I also don't like how the cell below the description has no point of any kind, potentially confusing readers. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 04:38, 17 November 2017 (EST)
