It's been long enough... but I'm finally collating all of the work that's been done on the Super Smash Bros. cameos and putting it all on the website as part of a wider "screw it, just put everything online" campaign.
The guide will not be complete. I am putting up the following information for each game, divided into series.
Playable Characters Bosses Stages Items Assist Trophies Music Trophies Stickers Other Cameos (e.g. Mr. Game & Watch's Mario Bros. attack)
The "Playable Characters" section will not feature alternate costumes or move origins immediately. However, this is simply to get this online with as much detail scavenged from earlier guides, earlier drafts and the help you guys have provided. Turns out, nearly all the work was done, it just needed formatting!
The overall plan is a huge undertaking. I have created more interesting search pages, I will be creating filler pages for all games without one that can then be expanded upon, and I will be reinstating all cameos (and possibly Easter Eggs, but not for the first wave).
In the intervening time, I've been rewriting pages for the SNES and DS/DSiWare, coming up with huge improvements to the navigation pages, rebuilding the cameos for the entire site and so on and so on. The problem I have is that most of it has to be done before it can go online.
Oh, and playing some games and having a life. There's been a bit of that as well.
Keeping up with new games really isn't a problem. There's so few of them these days that it's surprisingly easy to keep up. In fact, the "offline" site is 100% up to date. Can't promise that'll still be the case in another couple of weeks when the site magically updates, but at my current rate of production, it's looking promising.
The blog and all that is merely somewhere for me to ramble when I don't want to ramble on the forums. It's not like I update that much either
I guess I can help with this, seeing as how I already had the most important tests for now. I guess I'll start with Playable Characters. Anything that I should talk about specifically? This is basically what I've got in mind:
Character "Birth Date" - Series
Special Attacks Basic Attacks Misc./Interesting Info (like ability to glide, wall cling, etc or how Snake made his way into SSBB) Alt. Costumes (did you mean the lack of Alt. Costumes Pictures or their origins?)
I was thinking about a little profile info, too. Nothing extensive, though. If one's interested in the character, then that person should just search for that character in the Database (maybe a link to that characters profile in their serie?)

We have a very in-depth post about the origins of the alt costumes, and I have the majority of the images as well. However, it's a huuuuge post and every one needs verifying (even the ones I've posted) and compiling into a list for me to work from.
And that means taking out anything that is a "meeeeh, could be".
The problem is some characters have so many little connections to other games that a simple character entry could become overblown. I'd like to keep it relatively simple.
Character Name - Brief character description.
Red + Blue (Red Team)
Green + Brown (Green Team)
Attacks (Includes all fighting or moving animations)
B + Up
Final Smash Description
Taunt 1, 2, 3...
Victory Pose 1, 2, 3...
That oughta do it. If you're not sure if something is a cameo or not, submit it for review here and we'll argue over it ;D

Ok. I'll start off with Mario, just to see if I've understood it correctly.
Btw, for anyone else who is interested in helping, BrawlBox can open up character files, so that way, you have a way of seeing each animation separately.
Also, by "all" fighting and moving animations... I doubt you mean things like "tip-toe", "slow walk", "walk", "faster walking", "jogging" and "running" separately. I'd expect something more like if there is anything worth noting, like Bowser's Running Animation (I'm pretty sure I've heard that it's from the SNES game SM RPG).
nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...

Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s

nocturnal YL: I'm about to start on my next review video. I'll use the same 1080p-in-1440p format (so that the caption is separate from the game clips), and I'm wondering if I can make better use of the left and right edges. I probably can't think of anything though.

Nester the Lark: Apologies for my silence lately. I have a lot going on IRL right now.
Oct 17, 2022 8:32:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm not busy or anything, but I don't really have anything substantial to say either. I'm in Fire Emblem mood now, playing Warriors 3H and really looking forward to Engage, but I'll save discussions for later.

nocturnal YL: Also in case people don't read Nester's Twitter, his issue is that he has lost Internet connection after moving to a place no ISP seems to serve.

Nester the Lark: Hey, guys. Sorry for my unannounced-on-the-forum absence. I didn't expect to be gone for so long. But I'm back, and I'll try to get back into the swing of things around here.
