Recent edits to List of massively multiplayer online games[edit]

Information.svg Hello, and thank you for your recent contributions. I appreciate the effort you made for our project, but unfortunately I had to undo your edit(s) because I believe the article was better before you made that change. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions. Thank you! Leoesb1032 (talk) 00:08, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

I simply did that because the List_of_massively_multiplayer_online_games#RPG_.28role-playing_game.29 does the same thing, but it's fine with me I do not care either way, I just don't see the need to maintain two copies of that list. BlitzGreg (talk) 12:06, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Blitzkrieg 3, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mac (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.

Proposed deletion of Flare3D[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Flare3D has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I don't find evidence of notability for this software.

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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. —Largo Plazo (talk) 02:56, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Discuss on the article talk page please. BlitzGreg (talk) 03:22, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Drag and drop (computing)[edit]

If you're really insistent, I'll delete the page, but for the moment I've just redirected it to drag and drop. You're unlikely to be the last person to fail to notice it, so it makes more sense to send anyone else to what they're looking for. WilyD 10:39, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Command and Conquer Generals 2 Logo.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Command and Conquer Generals 2 Logo.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Codename Lisa (talk) 11:44, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Command and Conquer Generals 2 Logo.png[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Codename Lisa (talk) 01:33, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:DS Game Maker Logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:DS Game Maker Logo.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Ymblanter (talk) 10:29, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Seiklus[edit]

Hello BlitzGreg. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Seiklus, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Computer games (not browser games) are not eligible for deletion via A7. Also the "Impact" section makes credible claims of significance. Thank you. SmartSE (talk) 19:02, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

The citations do not match up though, some of the links make no reference to the game. BlitzGreg (talk) 19:12, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
That is a resosn for editing to fix or improve the refs, or perhaps for proposing deletion at AfD, but not for speedy deletion. DES (talk) 19:15, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes I am sorry about misunderstanding the speedy policy, my bad. But I am going to propose AfD because that article does not establish notability through its sources, as I said they don't even match up to the article content they cite. BlitzGreg (talk) 07:08, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Tagging of Vertigo Games[edit]

I recently removed a speedy delete tag that you had placed on Vertigo Games. I do not think that Vertigo Games fits any of the speedy deletion criteria  because Multiple 3rd-party refs and 25 games released takes this well out of the A7 speedy deletion zone.. I request that you consider not re-tagging Vertigo Games for speedy deletion without discussing the matter on the appropriate talk page. DES (talk) 19:14, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Again my apologies about misinterpreting A7, but this is kind of humorous, the citations all link back to official Game Maker websites, they are not only unreliable, but also first party, as it says in the cleanup templates placed 3 years ago. BlitzGreg (talk) 07:09, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Censorship of GameMaker from Wikipedia[edit]

Hi BlizGreg. Is there a reason you're systematically removing all mention of GameMaker from Wikipedia? -Thibbs (talk) 11:51, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Just cycling it to some different game engines such as Unity or Construct etc for a while as I don't see the justification in it being the defacto game creation system mentioned on every article. BlitzGreg (talk) 11:54, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Sure, but edits like this seem like nothing but censorship. You could add the file formats for Unity or Construct, but instead you've removed the file formats for GameMaker. I don't think that edits like this help to grow the encyclopedia. -Thibbs (talk) 12:03, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh I see, GML is a disam. for Geography Markup Language and Game Maker Language which redirects, I would argue the former not the latter is more Notable but that is my opinion not a fact, you are welcome to open a discussion on the article talk page. The former is also a file format where the later is not as well. BlitzGreg (talk) 12:07, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Yeah I guess I'd just recommend that you stop removing all mention of GameMaker and instead start adding Geography Markup Language or Unity or Construct or whatever alongside it. If you're seeing blatantly spammy GameMaker advertisements then that's one thing, but most of the places I've seen you removing links are perfectly valid (even though other software could also be mentioned in addition). Thanks. -Thibbs (talk) 12:14, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Several of the places were where multiple external links already exist, which there is a policy against WP:External links. There is also other justification in removing those formats from the list, being that there is no record of their existence. Review the following searches. The format is from the early 90's and virtually no files exist in said format, nor is their a published specification. So I am going to go ahead and open a discussion on the article talk page, which you are welcome to participate in. BlitzGreg (talk) 12:24, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the invitation. I'm not sure if you're aware, but that particular edit was restored by another user, though. I'm not deeply invested in GameMaker by any means either, but I do think that you are going a bit far in your efforts to equalize the playing field. As I said before, if you think that coverage of Unity/Construct/Geography Markup Language/etc is lacking then the solution is to add it, not to remove GameMaker. You're carrying out these edits in a systematic manner but there doesn't appear to be any consensus for this. Perhaps it would be a good idea to start a thread on the topic at one of the related WikiProjects like WT:VG. I'm sure there are others who would be interested in giving feedback on your efforts. -Thibbs (talk) 12:31, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Ok thanks for the feedback! BlitzGreg (talk) 12:35, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

No problem. I've just reviewed your edits and fixed some of the problems I'd identified. The rest looks fine. It can be tricky working with things like this because by its nature GameMaker as an amateur game creator's tool it attracts a lot of non-notable material to Wikipedia. Some should be clearly be removed and some is OK (especially as listed alongside competing software). Anyway thanks for your help. -Thibbs (talk) 13:09, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Wrong dates[edit]

You recently tagged some pages as orphan since 2007. Check here for instance. Please be more careful in the future. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:15, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Godot[edit]

BlitzGreg, thanks for taking the time to create Godot (game engine). In its present form it is not much more than a stub, is lacking notable material, and will likely be deleted. Please do some research and flesh the article out more.

In the future, it's always better to write the article in your sandbox first, and then copy it over once it's completed. After an article has been deleted, it's often held to much higher standards to be recreated. Slacka123 (talk) 03:05, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Further removal of GameMaker from Wikipedia[edit]

As I told you before, edits like this are not helpful at Wikipedia. Your systematic removal of references to GameMaker gives a strong appearance of non-neutral editing. If you would like to provide additional examples of other engines like GameMaker then that's fine, but systematically editing to reduce coverage of GameMaker should only be done as a result of consensus (e.g. as developed at WT:VG). I urge you to bring this up at WT:VG before removing any more examples of GameMaker from Wikipedia. -Thibbs (talk) 04:48, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
