[[[Make Your Move]]]
“True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.”
Welcome to Make Your Move 8, the exciting eighth installment of SWF’s one and only moveset making contest! Whether you’re a first timer or a pro at movesetting, take a moment to read through this opening post; it’ll likely solve any questions you have about our humble little contest!
Have you ever looked at your favorite character and thought; “Man, I wonder what they’d be like if they were in Super Smash Bros…” Well if you’re anything like us, the answer to that is probably a “yes.” That is, essentially, the point of Make Your Move; to give a Smash-based moveset to your favorite characters no matter who they are! Throughout our previous contests, we’ve had movesets for famous Nintendo characters, obscure anime characters, real life people and pretty much anyone and everyone under the sun! If you have a character you’d love to see in Smash and if you want to see it done -YOUR- way, this is the thread for you!
Keep in mind though that MYM is purely hypothetical; we don’t design movesets to be put into Brawl but rather for our own amusement. Thus, we have no plans of actually hacking our sets into Brawl nor do many of us have the ability to do so if we wanted to.
Our trusty home away from home; the Workshop is a WordPress blog designed especially for keeping track of everything in MYM! From the easy to navigate home page, you can find such things as:
- A complete list of every moveset in MYM8
- A complete list of every moveset from our previous contest; MYM7
- A full history of MYM including handy links to every previous thread and much, much more.
- A complete list of every moveset made in MYM4-6
- Many helpful guides to making the best moveset you can make!
- The Sunday Recap; an article written by myself to summarize the current week of MYM.
As you can see, the Workshop is a very, very handy place with links to anywhere you’d possibly need to go right at your fingertips! A link to the Workshop can be found HERE.
To keep the contest running smoothly, five specially selected members have been chosen to be the leadership of Make Your Move 8. These leaders are very experienced and are more than happy to help the community! MasterWarlord, Junahu, BKupa666, SmashDaddy and myself, MarthTrinity, make up the MYM8 leadership.
If you have any questions that this OP doesn’t answer, we’d be more than happy to help you answer them! You can recognize our MYM8 leadership via our avatars pictured below:
The meat and potatoes of our thread; the movesets. Before you go running off to bring all your ideas to paper, here are rules and tips to help you on your way!
You’re more than welcome to make a set for a character who has already been previously made in a MYM contest (or even earlier in this contest!) so long as the movesets are significantly different from one another; no copying other peoples’ work and claiming it as your own, what’s the fun in that?
If you made a moveset in a previous MYM contest, you’re more than welcome to remake the set so long as the older version and the new version do not share more than five moves. If you plan on remaking a set, it’s best if you have entirely new ideas, it also makes it a lot more fun to read if it’s not the same set reposted with minor tweaks!
Please don’t repost movesets. If you posted a moveset on a previous page and it got ignored or wasn’t finished, you’re allowed to post a link to the moveset but not allowed to erase the set and post it again. This is to prevent spam.
Story Modes can also be made by users who may feel that writing a story is more their forte than writing a moveset. If you do plan on writing a Story Mode, please use the UserBlogs section of Smash World Forums (or your own site/blog) and do NOT post your Story Mode in this thread. You are however allowed to advertise your Story Modes in thread. Here's a good example of a well done Story Mode; Playing God.
Everyone likes to be acknowledged for their work, right? You spend who knows how long on a set, you deserve at least a few replies to it! That being said, comments help keep the thread alive and the movesetters motivated! If you read a set and like it, your comment could be as simple as that. If you have some constructive criticism to give towards a set, also feel free to do that! We’re all improving here in MYM despite how long we may have been doing this, thus, comments are always appreciated.

Use common sense when you post. MYM is part of Smash World Forums, therefore, we have to obey the rules of the site while posting. If you have to think about if something is appropriate or not to post, it’s more than likely not.
Please keep in mind that the closing date of this MYM is, as of now, undetermined and will remain so until a much later date. When the leaders have determined a closing date, we’ll announce it in the thread.
If you care to learn more about your fellow MYMers, feel free to join us in our very own MYM Xat Chat! Be advised however that the Xat is not a part of SWF at all and as such, may not be appropriate for people under a certain age.
If you see spam in the thread please do not reply to it. Report the post instead of putting more fuel on the fire. As previously mentioned, using common sense while determining if a post is spam or not.
Note to Mods: We put this thread in GBD because it really doesn't have much to do with what's going on in the Smash Workshop; this is all hypothetical and is in no way associated with the hacking or PSA projects. That being said, if you feel we should be moved back there, that's perfectly understandable.
And finally, this MYM is once again dedicated in honor of SirKibble; a good friend to us all who left our contest in order to serve his mission trip. We all look forward to his return and hold each contest with him in mind.
With that, you’re ready to Make Your Move! Have fun, be creative, make some sets!
