Don't for now. I'm going to carry through on the long-held plans to split the timeline into the years articles. The timeline will redirect to the appropriate history article. Mrwojo 14:39, 24 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Sentence outlines. This has the potential for annotating the links, which is impossible for a navbox. See, for example, Outline of canoeing and kayaking. The benefit of an outline is that the reader can learn the basic meaning of a topic without clicking the link. This is especially important since video games includes a lot of specialized language and jargon. Navboxes also do not show sub-sections for the table of contents. Article space is not a real issue, as we are concerned with a brief but broad overview of the whole topic. — HELLKNOWZ ▎TALK 09:42, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
First off, this is the strangest article I've come across on the 'pedia (and I've been around). It's almost impossible to navigate or digest. It also seems to be a poor copy of this article.
But aside from that, what is the "What type of thing is a video game?" section supposed to be for? What type of information is it supposed to convey? Not only is it horribly named, but it just links to topics that don't even answer the question or have anything to do directly with video games. I realize it might be in a state of flux, so what is the plan with this section? Is it going to develop into something logical or can we just nix it? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 17:01, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
It's a part of WP:OUTLINES (Category:Outlines) and it's structured like the rest of them. Some of this was being rewritten by a new editor but then it kind of trailed off and left it in a weird state. I would get rid of "What type of thing is a video game?" section. It's vague, OR, and not really outline material. The rest is just a list of links and there shouldn't be any significant issues except missing entries and descriptions. P.S. your link is the same as this article. — HELLKNOWZ ▎TALK 22:22, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
Well, I feel silly. I must have been in a rush. I'll delete the eponymous section. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 02:38, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
