To further clarify my edit, even if both would be correct, it makes much more sense to have Level and Flower Points with numbers, given that is how they are always represented. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 19:34, 30 January 2016 (EST)

I understand. I've looked up how to write out when appropriate, and although there are a bunch of rules for this out there, many which can be contradictory, I think using numerical values to signify levels and points is a better idea than writing it out. Perhaps if it was referring to the number of characters, it would be more appropriate to write out the whole number. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 19:34, 30 January 2016 (EST)
Yeah, I think rather than going by a hard rule (especially since there isn't just one), we should look at what we're talking about to know which is better. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 19:42, 30 January 2016 (EST)
I've tended to only use numbers for stages, chapters and percentages while writing out everything else, and I've written out numbers under 100. Style guides have varying opinions on where the cut-off line should be, especially for more formal writing, so I've just gone with what makes sense to me. "Ninety-nine" is a lot simpler than "one hundred (and) ninety-nine", leading to my decision. I don't agree with using the numbers for points, though. It's mostly a nitpick, but seeing the number in that context instead of the word is jarring to me. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
