List of commercial failures in video gaming[edit]

So I was reading your WP:VG interview and decided to submit one of the articles you mentioned to reddit. It caused quite the traffic increase. JACOPLANE • 2011-04-7 21:17

Peer review[edit]

Hey Gamer! Is there any way you can give some feedback to Sleeping Dogs on its peer review page? Since me and Tezero will be taking it to FA next week, help would be very much appreciated. Thanks for everything in advance! URDNEXT (talk) 16:01, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do. Probably caught me at a good time seeing that I have Labor Day off at my college. GamerPro64 16:20, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Nice! Thanks for the help! URDNEXT (talk) 16:33, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

So, did you find anything about the article? Sorry for any incoveniences, by the way. URDNEXT (talk) 13:00, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

I have not. GamerPro64 13:09, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
So... you think it can pass FA then? URDNEXT (talk) 13:10, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Maybe. Why not end the suspense and give it the old college try? Even if it doesn't pass its first FAC, it can be looked at as a learning experience. GamerPro64 13:14, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm waiting on Czar and Tezero to give me a green sign for nominating the article. We're doing this together. URDNEXT (talk) 13:18, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

GA Cup[edit]

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/The Mystery of the Leaping Fish[edit]

Your Featured picture candidate has been promoted
Your nomination for featured picture status, File:The Mystery of the Leaping Fish (1916).webm, gained a consensus of support, and has been promoted. If you would like to nominate another image, please do so at Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates. Armbrust The Homunculus 23:10, 9 September 2014 (UTC)


Hey Gamer, I was wondering if you think Sleeping Dogs (video game) could pass FA if we nominate it today, as there are only some minor things me, czar and tezero need to do before the we finish work on the article. Thanks! URDNEXT (talk) 15:51, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I guess on face value it'll have a standing at FAC. Besides the dead link that I tagged on there it might be a success. But obviously other editors will do a more through job at combing through the article than I will so you might want to stay on your toes during all of this. GamerPro64 16:03, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks! Hope to see you at FAC if possible too! URDNEXT (talk) 16:21, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

The peer review went down, but the FAC went up![edit]

Are you available for providing feedback at the nomination page of Sleeping Dogs? URDNEXT (talk) 22:31, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Probably not. I don't like reviewing other articles. I'm more about removing the bronze stars than adding them. GamerPro64 22:38, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Is that supposed to mean something? URDNEXT (talk) 22:40, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes. It means I'm into stuff like FARs and GARs rather than FACs. GamerPro64 22:42, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh well. Everyone has their own taste. URDNEXT (talk) 22:44, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

LGS video games FT[edit]

Flight Unlimited III just passed FAC, so it looks like the LGS video games FT is finally complete. Just in time, too: System Shock is going to be a TFA in a few days, which means that the FT can now be displayed on the front page. I'm sure it's a pain to shuffle 17 pages from GT to FT, but, if you could find time to do it before Shock's TFA, I'd really appreciate it. Can't believe I've finally reached the end of this project. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 01:38, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

I can't believe it either. Congrats Jimmy. I'm away from a computer right now but I when get onto one I'll get the topic processed. Again, great job man. GamerPro64 01:54, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
I was looking for the new nomination for this for the Signpost but there is only one nomination for this topic and it's for GT, so I'm assuming that this is an automatic promotion from GT to FT although in my quick search of the rules for FTs I can't find a rule that talks about automatic promotions. --Pine 05:15, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
The answer is quite simple, @Pine: Automatic promotion literally means it automatically becomes a Featured Topic. Once 50% of the the content in a topic is of Featured Content, it goes from Good to Featured. No nomination needed. GamerPro64 14:21, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
OK thank you. Where is the policy that says this? --Pine 18:55, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
There isn't exactly a policy. Topics are coded that they know that when at least 50% of the topics content is of Featured Content, it becomes Featured. I'm actually writing a piece to submit to the Signpost to help with the understanding of the process. GamerPro64 19:00, 28 September 2014 (UTC)


About Crisco's talk page thing. I won't be doing that again. URDNEXT (talk) 23:02, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

I already saw your apology. You pinged me. You didn't need to make a new thread here. GamerPro64 23:14, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Alright. I did it just to make sure. URDNEXT (talk) 23:29, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured topics on the Main Page[edit]

In case you hadn't already seen this. Yours, BencherliteTalk 19:53, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I have seen it already and am very much excited for it being made. Thank you very much Bencherlite. GamerPro64 19:57, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Today's featured list/September 26, 2014, tomorrow, will be the first TFL to use the |topic1= parameter that I've now added to the TFL set-up. BencherliteTalk 09:31, 25 September 2014 (UTC)


Are you available for copy editing any section of Sleeping Dogs? It would really help as the article is under a lot of pressure from the reviewers at FAC for its prose. URDNEXT (talk) 22:48, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

The Signpost: 24 September 2014[edit]


So... it's been a month since we talked about this. Still interested in running? I'd be glad to nominate you. → Call me Hahc21 16:01, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. I was thinking about adminship lately. That would be great to have you nominate me for it. Thanks. GamerPro64 17:35, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
