Under External Links, Interviews, https://ia701205.us.archive.org/20/items/SevenDayCooldown-Episode1Gaben/Episode1-Full128-Final.mp3 should be referenced as having been interviewed by SevenDayCooldown Irishspuds (talk) 06:32, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit semi-protected}} template. Don't see why this particular interview should be listed. My searches for SevenDayCooldown have not been very convincing as they don't seem to be very big and their website is defunct Cannolis (talk) 06:40, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Gabe has an odd hate for the number three. He didn't stay for the release of Windows 3, he hasn't developed Half life three, and he hasn't developed portal 3. The closest he has ever gotten was Half life 2 part 2. 96.233.63.88 (talk) 00:34, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Last [citation needed] can be proven, but I can't find a single source that could be used[edit]

"Gaben" meme started with Gabe saying his email address in TF2s developer commentary, he said it as /ˈɡeɪbɛn/. I'm sure there is possibly some proof of this, I think this is the video that popularized it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tsHkpesBdY — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.182.217.138 (talk) 16:16, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

"publically"[edit]

Says "publically" at the end of the § Work section. (Also, that entire sentence about Hatred is WP:RECENTISM and really not noteworthy enough in the article about the person Newell. It should be removed, IMO.) --82.136.210.153 (talk) 00:58, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Yellow check.svg Partly done: publically -> publicly is done. Re Hatred open a discussion and gain consensus. -- Sam Sing! 02:40, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
