A couple ideas

I had an idea for making the dropdown menus more organized. I'm thinking one for each weight class, and maybe lose the "Battlebots Competitiors" tab completely because it's too vague. I do agree that more than 7 each is too crowded, so with that in mind Here are what the new ones would look like:

Super Heavyweight Robots -> Minion, Diesector, Toro, Vladiator, New Cruelty, Atomic Wedgie, DooAll, more... (this would be a link to the Category:super heavyweights page)
Heavyweight Robots -> Biohazard, Vlad the Impaler, Son of Whyachi, Voltarc, Overkill, Nightmare, Tazbot, more...
Middleweight Robots -> Hazard, Spaz, Son of Smashy, T-Minus, Complete Control, El Diablo

Lightweight Robots -> Ziggo, Dr. Inferno Jr., Backlash, Gamma Raptor, Wedge of Doom, Tentomushi, Mouser Meach Catbot, more...

Robots

Is this wiki just for robots that was on the television? Sam (BAZINGA) 16:19, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

No, it's for every single robot, team, merchandise etc. Basically, it's a wiki about the entirety of BattleBots.AlexGRFan97 13:40, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Why is there names missing on the Wanted pages forum page then? Are all the other robots that wasn't on the list going to be put there when all the names currently on the list are done? Sam (BAZINGA) 13:43, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

They're just crucial pages, because they're robots that appeared in televised matches. AlexGRFan97 18:08, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

That explains why there are pages missing. Sam (BAZINGA) 18:10, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Bump n Bash Bots Page

Since these are all designed the same way and come with the same accessories, shouldn't we just have one page for all of them?

MasterMarik 15:40, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Well we gave the Deluxe Metal Mechanics 3 pages, so I don't think so. AlexGRFan97 (talk) 10:23, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

Episode Titles

The episodes actually had real titles with them? Where would this have been found, your TV guide? MasterMarik (talk) 22:47, September 30, 2012 (UTC)

I honestly don't know. This video mentions S05E01's actual name though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVBXl5UaREE AlexGRFan97 (talk) 20:13, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Robotica and others

I thought there wasn't going to be any info regarding bots from Robotica and whatnot yet I see it on this wiki. Is the main page going to be edited to reflect this? MasterMarik (talk) 22:01, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

I think because some of the teams entered other competitions, it is extra info to a page which may explain note worthy information (like Panzer beating Juggerbot in two different competitions with Juggerbot taking second place and Panzer first or if a robot entered other competitions with different robots).

Battlebots Prelude to Battle

Here's the first part of the episode that used to be on Google Video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FCEs0ziQNs

The second part of the episode (buildng a robot in 43 seconds) is also on YouTube.

Just passing that along in case there's some stuff you want to use from it.

The logo is not in English.

Well, it's some asian language, probably Japanese or Chinese. I didn't know they were sold outside of USA, Canada and the UK. AlexGRFan97 (talk) 15:32, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

Background

What happend to the background on the page? MasterMarik talk 00:52, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

God knows, I just know that it has vanished. Sam (BAZINGA) 15:22, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Battlebots Promo

Just uploaded today. Might have some better quality footage for some fights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCLuzKKBG7A

Battlebots Episode 502

Good footage for pics here too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjcnBYqk8zk

Oh wow after two years of inactivity they're actually uploading HD quality Season 5? Now this is a gift I did not expect. Can't wait till they get to the fights I haven't seen in almost a decade.

Interesting Read

Mark Beiro's Intros

Think we should include them for each bot's page?

Does sound like a good idea. Sam (BAZINGA) 12:49, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
What about fan-made intros like ones we make ourselves?MasterMarik (talk) 18:44, April 18, 2015 (UTC)
I think only the ones from the Mark Beiro himself is best. Sam (BAZINGA) 20:03, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

Match Summaries

Think they should be in a table like the Arena Hazard's page is? I think it'd help line up images that are otherwise positioned in the next paragraph. Plus there's also the issue of when the paragraph won't align itself with the image.MasterMarik (talk) 20:28, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, it was coming up as separate sections. That looks like it would've been bloody good fun, I hope that a way or getting it becomes public as I'd love to have it on the PS2. Sam (BAZINGA) 12:10, August 21, 2015 (UTC)

Quasar

Should we have a page for this robot, which was to be competing in Battlebots? http://web.archive.org/web/20021003000151/http://www.gt-electronics.freeserve.co.uk/c2/quasar/quasar.htm MasterMarik (talk) 00:35, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

Don't see why not. Sam (BAZINGA) 11:35, November 23, 2015 (UTC)
It was never entered anywhere, so no. Badnik96 (talk) 13:03, November 23, 2015 (UTC)
Same could be said for the likes of Super Ginsu, which never got off its table. MasterMarik (talk) 13:18, November 23, 2015 (UTC)
What about WingSpan? It never competed at all either and it has a page. Sam (BAZINGA) 18:19, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

Battlebots Metal Breakdown Game

Should we include it? It was a game originally on the Comedy Central website. I can put in the details about the game as I have shockwave player. MasterMarik (talk) 02:26, April 8, 2016 (UTC)

Im interested i would post about it got any links to it i would love to try it?Botomatic1000 (talk) 16:13, April 8, 2016 (UTC

http://www.chuckgenco.com/flipside/battlebots/battlebots.html

I suspect this guy chuck is whom made the game though not sure. It seems to have been changed a bit as when I played it your opponent was often damaging itself on the arena hazard.

What a shame it wouldnt load for me.Botomatic1000 (talk) 15:09, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

Do you have Shockwave player installed? MasterMarik (talk) 16:42, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

I should do but im downloading it again incase i dont already have it.Botomatic1000 (talk) 16:47, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

That'll also ensure you have the most up-to-date version of the player. MasterMarik (talk) 16:49, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

I cant download it for some reason every time i go to step 2 nothing happens no security message nothing.Botomatic1000 (talk) 16:52, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

How strange. Worked fine for me. No matter. IfI get more support for adding the page, I'll add it myself. MasterMarik (talk) 16:54, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

I really wanted to play it whats it like? any similarities to the robots live game?Botomatic1000 (talk) 17:00, April 9, 2016 (UTC) 

I have tried on chrome and microsoft edge and plugins are not supported it already appareantly ha sflash but i does not bloody work im a stupid with this stuff.Botomatic1000 (talk) 17:26, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

There are no robots from the TV show, only ones you choose from. Oddly, there's an audio of Sean Salisbury starting the match after a 3 second countdown. MasterMarik (talk) 17:45, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

Commercials

Should we add the commercials to the wiki and if so, what about pages for each of them? They could feature screencaps and transcrips of the commercial. Wouldn't know what to title them though, unless we base it on something from the commercial like what part of the show was being advertised. MasterMarik (talk) 01:05, May 22, 2017 (UTC)
