Vandalism notices[edit]

Vandalism notices are left on the offending editor's user talk page. You can find a list of these messages at Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. Some people, like me, use JavaScript tools (such as Twinkle to make this process go faster, but that is by no means required. However, you do need to make sute that the edits that you are reverting are indeed vansdalism under the officiasl vandalism policy. — TKD::Talk 20:44, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Ninja Gaiden II[edit]

Hello there. I'm not entirely sure what the problem with tidying the intro paragraph is. The infobox is there to serve a purpose, supply the user with detailed information they may not get from the article (eg, ratings from the PEGI, the ESRB etc). It's also where you can see detailed information about the game's release, and so on. First of all, there's no need to add the details of each release in the intro paragraph, as these are contained in the infobox. A general timeframe (even "2008 game" would be fine) is more suitable. The word "exclusive" is not really worth noting, unless there have been rumours surrounding other platforms (as was the case with Metal Gear Solid 4). There isn't in this case (as far as I'm aware), so this shouldn't be added. Take Assassin's Creed for example, it simply states "was released worldwide in November 2007". If people want exact dates, they can check the infobox, that's why it's there!
As regards your comment on my talk page, yes I do have the right to remove it, that's how Wikipedia works. Just because introductions contain specific release dates and exclusivity status "all the time" (though I note you didn't provide examples) does not mean it should be done in this case. If people don't notice the infobox (which is quite hard to miss), then I would contend they don't really want to know the information, and therefore, it doesn't have to be in the intro paragraph anyway.

Celebheights Regarding Chuck Liddell[edit]

Is totally reliable, I suppose you found his height on user edited imdb.Lasttiger (talk) 03:38, 13 June 2008 (UTC) Whatever site you found is just gossip. The Guy looks closely on Celebheights, they guy you said just puts down what he hears. He looks a littel bit shorter than Ortiz and Oritz is definitely 6'2". Of course there going to say 6'2" on UFC, they don't list fighters by 1/2" inches. Lasttiger (talk) 22:37, 14 June 2008 (UTC) Think about it. More than likely a person is going to exaggerate their height. What makes you think celebs don't do the same thing?Lasttiger (talk) 02:18, 16 June 2008 (UTC) I'm not going to sacrifice my account for saying he's 6'1 1/2", but I am just saying that it is probably true.Lasttiger (talk) 21:42, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Guilty Gear II[edit]

Hello. I popped over to the article and gave it a general tidy (sep 30 isn't a proper date as it's just a placeholder used by ign, gamespy etc; the Kotaku reference was fine though). I'll put it on my watchlist and keep an eye on it for you. Gimme a shout if there's anything else you need =) Thanks! Fin© 09:38, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Dead Rising Mobile[edit]

The fact remains that Dead Rising was released on mobile phones as well as the Xbox 360. It was developed in-house by Capcom, has the same characters, story and most of the same features. There are differences in their development, obviously, however discluding it completely because it does not use the same engine or voice actors (at least to me) is like saying that the mobile Google search should have a different article because they have a wml version as well as their regular html.

I think that people searching for mobile phone games through the category would obviously want to find this one, and saying the game is exclusive to Xbox in the intro or the infobox is simply not true. Surely there is a compromise here. Addionne (talk) 12:34, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of RACE Pro[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article RACE Pro, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. TallNapoleon (talk) 00:49, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

  • The way WP:PROD works is that if no one removes the tag within five days, the article is deleted. Anyone can remove the tag, although it's generally good form to put a note explaining why the tag is being removed. In particular, I put the tag there because there was no evidence provided that the game was notable, and also because it is not yet released. If you could provide sources establishing notability (i.e., has the game generated a lot of buzz, like Spore did, or is it part of a famous franchise, like Fallout 3), that would be excellent. TallNapoleon (talk) 02:12, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
    • The question is not whether the game will be released. The question is whether the game is notable, and whether it's future release will be a notable event. As of right now, the article does not assert WHY its subject is notable. In other words, why should this game get an article on Wikipedia? Existence (or future existence, in this case) does not prove notability. So what I'm asking is not whether the game is going to be released. As to the existence of articles without references, well, they need references, and if you come across one you should tag it as such. Finally, please see WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS and WP:SOURCES. TallNapoleon (talk) 03:42, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
      • I agree that the game exists (or will exist) and have never denied this. I do not agree that the game is notable. Please read what I have written above, which should make this clear. TallNapoleon (talk) 03:56, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

RE:Need Help[edit]

I have removed the tag. The article is indeed notable and got a wide coverage. You must understand few things. Adding just the official website does not prove it's notable and various other sources like for example in video gaming : IGN, Kotaku, Shacknews, Gamespot, GameSpy, 1UP are considered reliable add those in the article or in talk page to proves it notability. Have fun. Take care. --SkyWalker (talk) 04:28, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Please use edit summaries. They help other editors understand why you are making your edits. I noticed you recently made a significant reversion to the Vampire Rain article, but you didn't explain why. Without an explanation, I am inclined to revert the article back to its previous version. Chicken Wing (talk) 17:34, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom[edit]

"Crossover" is not a genre of game, since it doesn't affect the gameplay - see Video game genre. Please stop adding it to the infobox of the TvC article. NeoChaosX (talk, edits) 19:49, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I don't see how cross over can be considered a genre - crossover fighters still have the same basic mechanics as other fighting games, so it's not a change in genre, just in theme. However, I've asked the Videogame WikiProject for their input on whether or not it is genre - the discussion can be found here. NeoChaosX (talk, edits) 22:46, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Once again, I suggest you go over to this discussion - I'm not the only one who thinks crossover isn't a genre. A number of other regular editors of video game articles agree with me. NeoChaosX (talk, edits) 14:47, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Theatrical cut vs. unrated cut[edit]

Hello, I do not think that the length of the unrated cut is relevant to the infoboxes at Hancock nor Doomsday. I say this because the importance of these unrated cuts are not comparable to director's cuts, which make a more significant impact on the films themselves. Having worked on the articles for Hancock and Doomsday, I can say that the unrated cuts are of no great importance, so I do not think that they warrant inclusion in the infobox, which is intended to be a concise summary of film detail. —Erik (talkcontrib) 23:14, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

How about this as a compromise... we can state in each article's "Home media" section how many more minutes the unrated cut is. I don't think it's useless detail, but I don't think that it is important enough to highlight in the infobox, which we try to keep pretty limited. Also, remember that when studios write about the extra minutes on their DVD packaging, they're trying to get you to buy the DVD for that reason. :) That's why I mentioned looking for significant coverage besides the promotional materials themselves and mere databases like IMDb. Let me know what you think of the possible compromise. —Erik (talkcontrib) 23:29, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
I have implemented the compromise that I offered. The minutes are measured for each cut in the "Home media" section of the article. Hopefully, this is not a problem! —Erik (talkcontrib) 15:42, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

You can't have it both ways. You can't claim that the content in the unrated runtime isn't credible enough to be listed in the runtime box, then revert a change to a person who claims that dvd runtimes don't count. Despite the fact that films such as Bladerunner, Saw, Kingdom of Heaven, Lord of the Rings, Daredevil, Donnie Darko etc. (along with hundreds of other films) have their extended runtimes listed in the infobox on Wikipedia. There's no consensus on Wikipedia that states that a such claim (Only a three revert rule per day on article) on reverting. Any random vandal can revert a source of info without legit claim. The fact that one person reverted the change for a claim entirely different from yours adds validity to that fact. There's no rule on Wikipedia which prohibits the implentation of extended runtimes for films in an infobox. If you honestly don't believe that the director's cuts/unrated version of a film isn't credible enough to go into the infobox of the runtimes, then I strongly suggest creating a topic-talk on the issue on that film's talk-page. Otherwise, you can expect the info to be restored. Beem2 (talk) 07:24, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

I am not sure what was wrong with the compromise... the information will be in the article body regardless. We strive to keep the infobox concise, and it is needless to add more lines on account of a few minutes' worth of footage being thrown in for the DVD release. Like I said, there are director's cuts that are significantly recognized, like Kingdom of Heaven or Brazil, which can be appropriately recognized since they are major cuts that follow dissatisfaction with how the studios theatrically released the films. The films Doomsday and Hancock do not have cuts that change the arc of the film; no secondary source has commented on this, as opposed to the director's cuts for Kingdom of Heaven or Brazil. I've started a community discussion at WT:FILM#Theatrical cut vs. unrated cut. —Erik (talkcontrib) 08:00, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Re: Code Chronos[edit]

Those are exceptions to the rule, and only because they eventually became notable. We can't let other articles be articles just because similar articles exist. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 19:12, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Your edit to Final Fight: Streetwise[edit]

I noticed that you reverted my edit to Final Fight: Streetwise, which shortened the length of the characters section significantly. The long version contains a list of minor characters like thugs, bosses, and pit fighters that have no bearing on the story except to provide an excuse for fight sequences. Besides that, the wise ones really prefer that character sections be in prose format rather than list format, and they really frown on trivia sections. Before I put it back the way it was, what is there in the long version that the average person who has never played this game before (like me) would find useful? Remember, we are not an indicriminate collection of random data. Larrythefunkyferret (talk) 07:38, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Since you have yet to respond to my query, either here or on my talk page, I've taken the liberty of restoring it to its prose form. If you still feel strongly about it, I'm seriously willing to talk about it on the article talk page. Larrythefunkyferret (talk) 04:37, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Conker: Live & Reloaded[edit]

It's always fun to edit war and then criticize others for doing literally the exact same thing you are doing, yes?

But I digress. I'd be more inclined to respect your reversions if it weren't for the lack of any attempt to fix a SINGLE problem facing the article. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 08:06, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

And in regard to Dead or Alive: Code Chronos, use Chrono Break as an example. If you can find sufficient sources for its notability, remake it. But don't just remake it because you want it to exist. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 08:27, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

June 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add original research or novel syntheses of previously published material to our articles as you apparently did to Metroid Prime. Please cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you. Please discuss such changes (like changes to genres and categories) before making them. Please also comment your changes so other editors can see what you have done. DKqwerty (talk) 02:16, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

The revision made was tagged with the Help:Minor edit icon and is not vandalism as the genre listing was incorrect.Beem2 (talk) 02:35, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
I didn't say it was vandalism. Your revert says "see talk", but there is no discussion about the genre there, so I'm not sure what you were pointing me to. As I said, these kinds of changes should be made by consensus; what you personally feel is incorrect is of no consequence. Please cite a reliable source and discuss before making such changes. DKqwerty (talk) 02:49, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Citing a reliable source for the revision would be senseless as the information was lifted directly from the Metroid Prime 2 and 3 pages or, as common sense would say. The see talk was in reference to this response to you false tag. The next time you try tagging someone, you need to actually think as to why they're making the revision in the first place.Beem2 (talk) 02:12, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

About Alan Wake[edit]

Hi Beem2,

I meant to leave you a message earlier, but I forgot. I undid your revision of Alan Wake for two reasons, and I had to undo it again. First, it is redundant to put "physics engine" inside a video game infobox, the engine itself refers to a video game engine. Second, there is no video game genre called "psychological horror", video game genres refer to its style of gameplay, not its plot. And also, please take a look at the guide line concerning capital letters: "lead writer" isn't written as "Lead writer". I assume you are convinced. Thanks. --Soetermans | is listening | what he'd do now? 10:41, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

There are several variations within physics (PhysX for instance). Practically every game article on wikipedia has this description listed. This is no exception for Alan Wake. Same applies for Psychological Horror which is in fact part of a game genre. Which is why games such as The Suffering, Silent Hill, and Eternal Darkness are listed as such. You should actually try to research the details within a genre before simply deleting it and deeming that your view is ironclad.Beem2 (talk) 22:26, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Hi Beem2,
Thanks for your reply. Haven't got around to answer you earlier, my apologies. I would't say my views are ironclad, I'm always open to new suggestions and ideas—especially on Wikipedia. It isn't just that we disagree, we disagree about the interpretation of video game genres. Of course we could argue we want, but I feel that Wikipedia itself has to set clearer boundaries concerning video game genres: what should and what shouldn't be included? The same goes for video game engines, the infobox should be more clear about that. You seem to do more editing on video game articles than me, would you do the honor bringing this to the attention of its corresponding WikiProject? Thanks. --Soetermans | is listening | what he'd do now? 14:03, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
P.S. When you revert my edits, please let the de-capitalised letters for what they are.

Edit war[edit]

Please do not join in the edit war on Silent Hill (video game) and do not revert other people's changes without giving a reason. I have now protected the article for a week - if you wish to re-apply contentious changes, you should take them to the Talk page and get a consensus first. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 09:58, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

(Note: I am copying a similar message to all recent editors of the article - the prohibition against edit-warring applies whether or not you are right about the content) -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 10:05, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
Aargh, my apologies - I'd looked at the wrong diff and had thought you were reverting something else. I have unprotected the article. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 10:12, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Please be more careful about adding categories to articles. They need to be fully supported by sourced material in the articles. for example, don't add someone to the "fraudster" category unless they've been convicted of fraud. Don't add any individuals to the "racism" category. Also, adding or deleting categories is not a type of "minor edit". Please don't mark them as such.   Will Beback  talk  23:58, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Happy Wars[edit]

I have reverted your edit at the Happy Wars article. For one, it is sourced by two different reliable sources. Secondly, free to download is not the same as free-to-play. - SudoGhost 19:26, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

You are welcome to discuss it on the talk page, but do not remove sourced content just because you do not think it is true. None of the games you listed in your edit summary are free-to-play. Not a single one. Free is not the same as free-to-play. They are not the same term. You made a bold edit, and it was reverted, per WP:BRD. Please do not remove content that has been verified by multiple reliable sources without getting a consensus for your changes first. - SudoGhost 19:38, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Happy Wars shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. SudoGhost 20:16, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Islands of Wakfu, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page 2d (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

The article Snops Attack! Zombie Defense has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No secondary sources or assertions of notability.

While all constructive 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.

Category:Dreamcast-only games[edit]

Either this category doesn't include arcade games, or it should be removed from the "single-platform video games" category. I suggest the former. Can't be both. The arcade is a platform too. --Jtalledo (talk) 00:18, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

As said before, the consensus is that arcade isn't a console, hence games which are ported directly from it to a single console are considered exclusive. This rule has always applied to wikipedia in relation to arcade games being ported to console. It is applied to every console format.Beem2 (talk) 01:09, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Rather than imply I don't know what vandalism is (I'm no newbie), it would help if you'd pointed to the relevant discussion where this guideline was established. :/ --Jtalledo (talk) 03:20, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Attila Vegh.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Attila Vegh.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. howcheng {chat} 17:16, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Exclusive categories[edit]

Why an exception is made for arcade games in those categories? I don't see a reason for it. --Mika1h (talk) 09:24, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Titanfall, as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. czar  13:44, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Titanfall[edit]

I undid your recent edit to Titanfall, because it clearly ignored the hidden comments that were removed in the process.

Speedy deletion nomination of Haruneko[edit]

Hello Beem2,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Haruneko for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. AlanS (talk) 05:25, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from Haruneko, a page you have created yourself. If you believe the page should not be deleted, you may contest the deletion by clicking on the button that says: Contest this speedy deletion and appears inside the speedy deletion notice. This will allow you to make your case on the article's talk page. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you.
