Source discussion[edit]

My addition to the "Development" section was reverted because the source I used was not a "reliable source." I disagree and ask other editors to weigh in. The Game Informer website is specifically listed as a reliable source at Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Sources (under the "Reliable source" section). I understand there may be a concern that the author is not an "editor" at Game Informer, but Game Informer, as a reliable source, will provide oversight of material on its website. Also, WP:RS states that, besides the publisher of the work (which is reliable in this case), the author and work itself should be considered. The work itself appears to be of fairly high quality. The author does not appear to be a professional in the video game industry, but has written over 1000 posts on Game Informer. I'll defer to a consensus of the editors here on whether the source can be used to support the inclusion of the passage in the article, but a sweeping "it's not reliable" is too abrupt and a closer look is merited, in my opinion. Thanks! Airborne84 (talk) 16:05, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 12 September 2014[edit]

this article needs to add Leroy Jenkins, for he has become part of the game by pure chance and should be recognized as such. (talk) 18:59, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Mists of Pandaria part of the base game now[edit]

Could someone please update the "Expansions" section? It doesn't mention the fact that MoP is now free just like the other older expansions. Official article for reference: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scr00chy (talkcontribs) 02:58, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
