Merging articles[edit]

Please visit Wikipedia:Merge and Wikipedia:Proposed mergers when you want to merge two articles. You can implement the text of the one in the other and redirect the old title to the new one all without any need for deletion. In fact, deletion would destroy the edit history of the old article. And to comply with the GFDL, you need to know who originally submitted a a piece of text, not who moved it into another article. (Just in case you weren't checking on the deletion discussions you posted. - Mgm|(talk) 12:34, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Warcraft movie[edit]

Were going to get more information later there is no point in deleting it and making us start all over again when the new info comes. Jamhaw 16:34, 8 June 2006 (UTC)jamhaw

List of songs with a color word(s) in their names[edit]

Hi, I appreciate your point re this list, but it seems to me to be a pity to delete a page into which so much effort has gone (even though that effort might have been more useful elsewhere). So I'm asking editors if they can rethink and factor that in - I appreciate they may well reach the same conclusion even after a rethink :-) Dlyons493 Talk

AFD[edit]

Hi there, Ace! Any reason you haven't replied to my most recent post at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Andrew Bushell? Your input would be much appreciated as you seem to be the only other interested party in this issue. :-) Cheers, David Iberri (talk) 02:20, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Could I perhaps trouble you for one more reply? Thanks, David Iberri (talk) 13:52, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

A reply to your suggestion of creating an article for "alternate ending"[edit]

Please check out the Talk page for deleted scene to view my comments and suggestions relating the potential creation of an article for alternate ending.

Summary of the comment: I believe it could have its own article (with a reference both from and back to deleted scene), if you put a lot of effort and useful information into it.

Hello. Please stop claiming that a Solar eclipse is an astrological phenomenon. Maybe you want to check the difference between Astrology and Astronomy. Thanks. Nick Mks 18:40, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Heres what i put on sonic 2 talk page[edit]

--Philip1992 16:17, 11 July 2006 (UTC)Philip1992 Posted: Because when i type in sonic 2. A another page comes up telling you. If you want to go on sonic 8 bit or sonic 16 bit. So i thought it was not needed.--Philip1992 16:15, 11 July 2006 (UTC)Philip1992

Categories[edit]

It's common practice to limit the number of categories and include them in a general category, such as Category:Half-Life. Readers navigating Category:First-person shooters will then see Half-Life as a subcategory within it. o/s/p 12:48, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Irealized that after a minute. It just helps to actually explain what you're doing. Ace of Sevens 12:53, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Reply: Video game standards / Stacraft units and structures[edit]

Hi Ace, thanks for the nice comment! I started looking through Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Computer_and_video_games#Recent_video-game_deletions - I think I said what I basically wanted to say at Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/StarCraft_units_and_structures, and I will hover around and maybe contribute more. As for your fence-sitting changed to delete vote on that AfD, I think there is significant content that could be written giving an overall comparison and contrast of the units and structures that would not be duplicative of the content on the individual unit pages. Also, if you're interested, I didn't think the way the AfD was concluded was particularly well-reasoned, so I posted the deletion for review at Wikipedia:Deletion_review/Log/2006_July_19#StarCraft_units_and_structures. Thanks again and cheers - - Reaverdrop (talk/nl/w:s) 23:48, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Talk:TMNT Engine[edit]

You added a tag on this talk page just as the article itself got speedied [1]. The article text itself made it look like a homemade game still in development. Fan-1967 03:32, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

If you AFD it, check his contribs and see if he's recreated the autobio that also got speedied. And you might want to revert his linkspam in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles article. Fan-1967 03:51, 20 July 2006 (UTC)
He hasn't, though he did create a copy of the game page with different capitalization. 05:02, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

==Talk:Shadow Man (video game) I've given you what I feel is a fair synopsis of the problem. In short, the article is full of information about (the) Shadow Man, but almost nothing about the game. Nifboy 05:54, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

AfD for Halo[edit]

Err, you seem to have voted twice here. I guess you probably confused with one of those Halo AfDs from the same nominator with the same nomination. You should probably cross out or condense your vote. --SevereTireDamage 01:03, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Kari Wahlgren as Willow in Buffy Chaos Bleeds[edit]

My source is in an IGN interview with Wahlgren herself. An excerpt:

"IGN: What was the first game you were in?"

"Wahlgren: My very first game was Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds. I played the voice of Willow. It was such a thrill, because I loved the TV show, and it was the first job I booked through my L.A. voiceover agent! I went through two or three auditions for that role."

Starcraft: Ghost[edit]

I completely disagree with the edits you are making to Starcraft: Ghost. It's not cancelled. There is no official announcement anywhere from Blizzard that says that it has been cancelled. There's reason to believe it, yes, but until Blizzard says that it has been cancelled, it is speculation to say that it won't resume development. It is much more speculation to say that it's never going to start production again than it is to say that there's still a chance, because they never said they were going to cease development of the game forever. There is no solid proof of it's cancellation, so please don't speculate that it has been. bob rulz 05:12, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

I disagree. How can it not be finished? They could start it up again and finish it...I fail to see where your logic that it can't be finished comes from. bob rulz 05:45, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
You're right, there's no current verifiable plans to do so...but there are differences between being cancelled and indefinitely postponed. When a company announces that a project has been cancelled, then that means they have no intention of starting it back up again. I, personally, think that you're the one who is speculating; they have not said it was cancelled, yet you seem to assume that "indefinitely postponed" means cancelled and you seem to think they won't start it up again...even though they've given us no definitive reason to believe they won't. Until they say it has been cancelled, it's not cancelled. (I really wish I could explain this better...) bob rulz 07:32, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Playstation 2 top selling game[edit]

You left me a comment saying that I changed the top selling game from Vice City to GT3 and that this was not true. However I have sources. Here: [2]

However the relabilty of this sources is questionable.

Ebay also has this link: [3], but note that this is from June of 2005 which is clearly outdated. Also it says that San Andreas is the top selling game not Vice City. It should be changed back to GT3 for the time being because my research has been brought no solid evidence of Vice City being the top seller. Also, if you do find out that GT3 is not the current bestseller, please fixed this page: List of best-selling computer and video games as well and PM me. Thanks. Valoem 16:39, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

CVG Deletions[edit]

Hey, there. Just a note to mention that the {{CVG deletion}} tag needs to be subst'd in order for your signature to appear properly - I was wandering drunkenly through the current CVG deletion candidates when I realised a couple of them had been malformed because they weren't in the format {{subst:CVG deletion}}. Thanks! :) RandyWang (raves/review me!) 14:29, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Memory Card adapter link[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for that memory card adapter reference link. I'd been wondering about how Sony intended players to get their saves onto and off the standard cards for a long time and hadn't seen that. Kudos for posting it. Ex-Nintendo Employee 08:05, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Pimps at Sea[edit]

As this isn't a real game, should it be part of the video game project?--Runcorn 19:32, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Using "Year in...whatever"[edit]

Hi Ace,

While I agree with your comment about the [year in...whatever] is useful, it breaks the funtionality expected when a full date is used (day, month and year). So if you have something like October, 25 [put your favorite year here] then, to me, the date functionality is not being used (dates). And so, if I make the change suggested by the MOS, then the piped year that you are so fond of will keep the month/day preferences of the user from working. Just below the discussion about this in the MOS article says there is some disagreement among editors:

Another possibility is to link to a more specific article about that year, for example 2006, although some people find this unintuitive because the link leads to an unexpected destination.

Even in this case I think the discussion centers around a YEAR standing by itself, and not part of a day/month/year format. Frankly, I don't see why you would want to hide something as useful as "year in video gaming" behind a piped year. But hey, this is Wikipedia. I will do my my best to leave those date formats intact. The "baseball guys" like to do this as well. I'm a generalist and so there are plenty of other fish to fry. Schmiteye 16:03, 12 August 2006 (UTC)


Hi Ace, Well, upon further testing I found that this DOES NOT break the date preferences for users after all! There are plenty of ways to break the funtionality, but this is not one of the ways. My apologies. Schmiteye 20:30, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

"Spoiler" image at the top of ROM hacking[edit]

You're correct that "Wikipedia is not censored", but I don't think that necessarily means the presence of a spoiler image at the top of an article is appropriate. I started a discussion about it at Talk:ROM hacking. - furrykef (Talk at me) 04:23, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Xbox 360 region list[edit]

I think you need to take a look at this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Deletion_review/Log/2006_August_26#26_August_2006

I'm new to wikipedia but I am learning fast. I think you should review what I have to say and provide any counterpoints if you would like to. Otherwise please help me to develop this into a good article. I think my main point will hold that the alt.binaries.games.xbox360 www.abgx.net group is very reliable as a source. Either they can be the secondary source with the games as the primary source, or they can be the primary source with other websites being the secondary. I have carefully went over the original research page to make sure that this is not in violation. There are also several other sites that have this information and either update it themselves or get the info from abgx.net. I also know people there so if you feel that it is some sort of permissions violation I can get proof that it's not.

Charun: Hello, let's clear the air[edit]

Claim: "Charun bashes souls". I'm really amazed that this doesn't even sound a teensy bit suspect to others. But okay. Let's discuss.

1. First off, this claim is inappropriately worded for a real encyclopaedia. (Emotional description.)
2. These are the available artifacts known to depict Etruscan Charun, the same artifacts that Scott's cited authors are all drawing from and none of them show Charun even touching his victims. If there is no evidence, the author's are citing opinion and we need to state this explicitly. Please get acquainted with these artifacts if you want to help out fairly:
Charun (1)
Charun (2)
Charun (3)
Charun (4)
Charun (5)
3. Read The Origin of the Etruscans by Robert S. P. Beekes (p. 31-32):
The double axe. On a smaller issue Versnel concludes (p. 299): ‘When this bipennis [‘double axe’], property of ‘Zeus Bakchos’, carried as symbol of sacred power by Lydian kings, is encountered again as the symbol of the royal authority of the Etruscan kings, particularly of the supreme king of the federation of cities, this may be considered an important indication of the Asia Minor origin of the entire underlying ideology, and of the ceremony of investiture in which the bipennis played a part.’
So unlike Beekes, a recognized linguist and scholar, Jeff Rovin (still in red cuz nobody knows who he is!) never built his career on academic research. Instead he's only made entertainment books like Encyclopaedia of Superheroes and such. This is a reason to be skeptical of Rovin's authority on this subject. Talk to a typical librarian and see what they advise on this.
4. If Scott is just innocent, I fail to see why he harasses me on the French Wikipedia Charun article under two anonymous IPs coming from the States, instead of just signing in under his own name to contribute in a less deceptive manner. His IPs are coming up as 24.168.35.44 and 66.9.70.2 as you can see in that article's history.
5. On Charun, he editted the article a total of 32 times throughout a two-hour period. It's obsessive.
6. He has recently reintroduced sourcelss nonsense to Vanth that I had erased long ago which I had to revert again (See here), all under the guise of "restoring vanadlism by Glengordon, repalcing with a citation template." Well, the Vanth article didn't have any controversial problems until he editted it.

Now, given all this, I fail to see how his behaviour isn't anarchistic at this point. Things have to be taken in their proper context, so if you want to help, please consider all of these points carefully. Thank you.--Glengordon01 02:31, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes[edit]

"Similarly, we shouldn't refer to an "orange" GameCube. Unless it is made of actual orange peel, it isn't orange. Ace of Sevens" - thanks, that's the funny-ist thing I've read in months, cheers.87.102.37.175 12:53, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

RfC[edit]

You contributed to the talk page at Charun late last month. I've opened an RfC on the deadlock (which remains ongoing) at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Glengordon01. Perhaps you would like to comment there. Respectfully, Durova 02:14, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Your userpage[edit]

Hi Ace! I've recognized that Abotnick has added a comment on your userpage. That's why I blanked your userpage. Sorry, I didn't want to be inpolite but I think that Abotnick should use your discussion page for adding his comments. Your userpage is here to introduce yourself.

Fair use rationale for Image:BloodWake.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:BloodWake.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
