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

Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/Petropavlovsk-class battleships[edit]

I can't find the original nomination for this, which I need for the Signpost. Can you help? Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:37, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Never mind, found it. FT is one of the hardest for finding candidate pages, though. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:44, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Yeah sorry about that. FT can be difficult sometimes. The fact that the same FT reached the criteria to become one and went unnoticed for three months is a defining example. GamerPro64 01:47, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Sleeping Dogs[edit]

Hey, GamerPro, how's it going! I was wondering if you could help me with Sleeping Dogs (video game) since I really need help with it. Ever since I joined Wiki I have been trying to tackle the article alone but I can't seem to do it by myself wit the amount of experience I have. Is there any way you could help me take it to GA? I know you usually only edit Iron Storm related articles, but this one is rated B class so it should be an easy thing for both of us. What do you think? Thanks for everything in advance, URDNEXT (talk) 12:32, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Military articles? Oh boy I can tell this was a copy/paste message. I'll see what I can do but that's just silly. GamerPro64 14:53, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I was just doing this because I didn't know who was going to respond. Deeply sorry. URDNEXT (talk) 14:55, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Its all right. You don't have to apologize about everything, btw. GamerPro64 15:00, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, by the way, what do you think of the article? URDNEXT (talk) 15:01, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
It looks better than before, I guess. Still has a long way to go, though. GamerPro64 15:09, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you think you could help? GamerPro64 URDNEXT (talk) 15:10, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Again, I'll see what I can do. GamerPro64 15:17, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Alright. Byt the way, can you take a look at this Arkham Knight theory? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:URDNEXT/sandbox GamerPro64 URDNEXT (talk) 15:19, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
What exactly is the purpose of the theory? Are you making one up or something? GamerPro64 15:27, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I'm trying to figure out who is the Arkham Knight, or at least explain him, who he works for, etc. GamerPro64 URDNEXT (talk) 15:31, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't think that's allowed on this site. See WP:UPNO for what I mean. GamerPro64 15:36, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Why is it that every time I try to do something it's somewhat not allowed or I do it wrong? GamerPro64 URDNEXT (talk) 15:39, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Look, if its not harming anyone, I don't mind at all. Maybe I'm just not the right person to talk to. GamerPro64 15:40, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Alright, I guess. See you later! URDNEXT (talk) 15:42, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Deletion request[edit]

Hey, I saw your request to delete the redirect at Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/1956 Atlantic hurricane season/archive1 which was spawned from a move you did. I wasn't quite sure why the move occurred so the best guess I could make was that you were trying to fix an error in a move, so I moved it back (basically undoing your move). If this wasn't what you were trying to do, sorry. (Something was clearly in error because the talk page that you created out of the move had no associated project page, so it was just a dangling talk page.) Sorry if I messed things up more, and feel free to do whatever you were trying to do again because I've basically just undone everything that happened to put things back to a clean state. --Shirik (Questions or Comments?) 11:30, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I get it now. I think I fixed it now. Is that what you were looking for? --Shirik (Questions or Comments?) 08:21, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah I think every things in order now. Thanks. GamerPro64 14:11, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

FT question[edit]

Kedok Ketawa was just promoted to FA yesterday. I updated the icon at Wikipedia:Featured topics/Union Films. Is there anything else that needs to be done? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:17, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

What do you mean? The article went from Good Article to Featured Article and you then changed its icon in the topic. I believe all the bases have been covered. GamerPro64 01:19, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Yeah, that's it. I wasn't sure if I had to go through another nomination or something (like people do when adding new articles to a topic) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:26, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
No. Supplementary nominations are a horse of a different color. The topic is all good right now. GamerPro64 01:29, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Great, thanks. Won't have another FT for a while (though I'm hoping it won't be two years like the time between Chrisye and Union). — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:30, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
By the way your articles have been getting through FAC, it may not take that look for another FT. Thinking of when Chrisye was promoted, it reminds me of my three month break from Wikipedia. Surprising dark time that was for the project. GamerPro64 01:38, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I didn't have FTC on my watchlist for the longest time... but at least now, since I've added it, the process seems to be going smoothly. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 04:01, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Right now its running smoothly. Probably also slowly as well when looking at the FT log. But from what I remember, during my break from the site, delegates came and went. One even joining and then leaving within my vacation time. As well, I discovered this last Saturday, that one former delegate forgot to complete a Good Topic after promoting it. This of course had me making it an official topic. Finding out about it two years later was a miracle in of itself since it wasn't even on the Good Topics page. But anyway, for now the project is running pretty well. Possibly even resulting in an increase of Featured Topics made from last year. GamerPro64 04:13, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

Re:On Featured Topics[edit]

Wow. That's awesome. I thought I'd have to go through the whole process over again. Thanks for letting me know. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 18:58, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

That idiot[edit]

Vandalized your page. Hope it's better now that he's blocked. Ceasar (talk) 00:37, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

I have no clue as to why I was targeted. Certainly not something I wanted to see as I was processing a new Good Topic. I now want to know if there's a story behind that. GamerPro64 00:38, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Block logs say he was blocked a few hours ago, though funninly enough, he still vadalized pages while blocked. If you get to know the story, please share with me! Ceasar (talk) 00:39, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
See Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Evlekis. NawlinWiki (talk) 00:50, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I have no clue who that user is. This is becoming more and more confusing. GamerPro64 00:54, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Maybe his GTN was not promoted and he's seeking retaliation. → Call me Hahc21 00:57, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
It was only a matter of time before being in the big leagues had its toll. Then again, due to maintaining one of the Featured Content sections on the site, it has caused people to believe that I'm an administrator. Maybe one day. GamerPro64 01:00, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Have you applied? The Batman (talk) 01:07, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Not yet. I think it would be easier if someone else would vouch for me at an RfA rather then nominating myself. GamerPro64 01:10, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Can I? The Batman (talk) 01:10, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
If you want to you can. I mean, I don't know if non-admins can nominate. Worth a shot? Might also be important to read this. GamerPro64 01:13, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I'll do it. The Batman (talk) 01:17, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • You might want a nominator who's a bit better known on site. RFA can be quite unforgiving, and they'll oppose over the nominator too. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:21, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
So, Crisco 1492 Would you volunteer? The Batman (talk) 01:23, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
This is probably the worst thread to talk about adminship, I might add. GamerPro64 01:25, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Once RL calms down. Yeah, Gamer, I get you. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:29, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for that, Crisco. This will probably be a fun event. GamerPro64 01:33, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • It's kind of obvious that you owe me the honour to be your co-nominator. Are you okay with that? :) → Call me Hahc21 03:59, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I'll support this! NEXT (talk) 01:35, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
  • His name was Wash your pants. Ceasar (talk) 00:58, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

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)

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.

--Dom497, Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor
