expand and stub[edit]

Hi 2fort5er - thanks for your help in adding cleanup templates to articles, but one thing... please don't add stub and expand templates to the same article. {{expand}} is only supposed to be used once something is no longer a stub - a stub template is automatically a message asking for expansion (see {{expand/doc}}). Other than that, though, keep up the good work! :) Grutness...wha? 00:57, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

This barnstar is in recognition of your tireless disambiguations, redirects and other WikiGnome tasks on videogame articles. I mean, crikey, that's how many edits today already? :> Marasmusine (talk) 23:23, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! I'm currently going through a list of old games to see if WP has articles on them. I intend in time to create some of the missing articles as well. 2fort5r (talk) 09:54, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Glider Rider (video game)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Glider Rider (video game), and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.mobygames.com/game/glider-rider. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 14:43, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Professional Ski Simulator[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Professional Ski Simulator, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of Professional Ski Simulator and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 01:35, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Eh, what happened here? The "product being advertised" was 20 years old and no longer available for purchase! 2fort5r (talk) 13:58, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Is there some legal issue surrounding the use of the word "professional" in the title? 2fort5r (talk) 18:22, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
See the article's talk page, I don't think this will happen again. Beeblebrox (talk) 01:41, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to the Article Rescue Squad![edit]

Hi, 2fort5r, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles that have been tagged for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome! -- Banjeboi 10:02, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:59, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Change to Reversi/Othello[edit]

There is going to be a major expansion to go with this changeover. How fast and how much I don't know yet. There is a fair amount out there. Games of the type will also be given their due. There's something of a global duopoly (Chess and Go) in this area that doesn't reflect the historical complexity and does a dis-service to the larger games (and those involved with them) as well.Julzes (talk) 15:01, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Aquanoid[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Aquanoid has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Very minor breakout game. I could not find any coverage in reliable sources. Delete per WP:GNG.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Waterloo[edit]

FYI, Waterloo was not the first game in the Turkan series. They released a basically identical game about Borodino the year before. It was ST only IIRC, so it's not well known. Maury Markowitz (talk) 20:09, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
