Anime GA review

I only now saw your comment on the GA review for Anime. If you'd like to work on it and then re nominate it when you're done making the changes I requested, I will happily review it again.Lemurbaby (talk) 01:18, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 8

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Asteroids (video game), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wired (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.

Your GA nomination of Asteroids (video game)

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Asteroids (video game) you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Indrian -- Indrian (talk) 01:20, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Civilization IV

The first link you added as reference to the general 4X genre description seems to be broken. Do you think you could show it to me so that I could verify it some other way, or look for the archived version of it on Internet Archive? TeleComNasSprVen (talkcontribs) 08:28, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Asteroids (video game)

The article Asteroids (video game) you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Asteroids (video game) for things which need to be addressed. Indrian (talk) 21:06, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Welcome and a suggestion

Hi. I noticed that you're in the middle of getting Asteroids to become a Good Article and hopefully beyond. Its good to see effort made towards articles based on arcade games and I hope you can continue and be part of the Video Game WikiProject. But if you don't mind offering a suggestion on another project, Sinistar has always been an interesting bird for me and its current condition is really sad. Just a thought if that's okay. GamerPro64 04:43, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Well, of course I've been thinking of improving plenty of articles about games like these, including arcade games, because there's the Golden age of video arcade games and the second generation of video game consoles, where a lot of the simple basics of video games got wide exposure and there was a number of innovations and inventions for the medium at that time. Atari was the basic form of a typical video game industry: They made games, developed games, published games, advertised games, got big, and earned money. Much of the stuff they made is simple and fun, even arcade games like Asteroids are that way. They also innovated things, like putting in vector graphics for Lunar Lander. Today, the medium is complex, while the industry is massive. The greatness of the early days of video games before the NES came is what made me focus on improving such articles. |>(@"<) (talk) 05:19, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
    • Indeed, it's okay to improve Sinistar, and I can do it. |>(@"<) (talk) 05:24, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

FAR on hold

Hi! I have placed your FAR of Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening on hold. FAR instructions require a notification of a potential FAR to be made on the talk page of the article prior to the review being started. I see that you have posted to the talk page, but you did not give interested editors the chance to respond before you started the FAR. Discussion should be continued on the talk page, and if the article does not see significant improvements over the next week or two, the review may be restarted at WP:FAR. Thanks, and please let me know if you have any questions. Dana boomer (talk) 15:45, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

You need to wait more than a couple of hours. Editors have jobs, school, are in different time zones, are on vacation, etc. A wait of at least a week is necessary, two weeks is generous. Dana boomer (talk) 15:53, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
I might help there - specially if you take a look at another of the pre-2008 FAs which I helped get a star, Metroid Prime - some concerns were raised before, and while not enough to fear a FAR, preventing is always a reasonable thing to do. igordebraga 00:16, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
Hope some more people appear to look at DMC - and that my GOCE request to clean Metroid Prime up is answered soon before it gets into the FAR... igordebraga 02:08, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your note - that appears to be an interesting discussion. Just remember that before articles can be taken to FAR they need to have a notification placed on the article talk page for a reasonable period of time (not just a few hours). Notifications at WP:VG or the sub-page listing pre-2008 FAs don't count, as there may be interested editors who don't watch those places. Not just saying this to you, but to everyone participating at that discussion. Dana boomer (talk) 14:01, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppet comment you made

Hi there. I saw this comment you made. It seems you and @Indrian: think he's a sock puppet. I was wondering if you could provide some reasons or "difs" that show this? Or if you had been to WP:SPI about it? I'd prefer to clear this up, and block him if he's a sockpuppet who's block evading or wrongfully using 2 accounts, or not be bringing it up if it looks like its not true. Please let me know what you know. Thanks! Sergecross73 msg me 18:18, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Talk Page

Let us discuss the changes at the Sega Saturn Talk Page. We may get in trouble if we continue to go back and forth. Although I do not think either of use is doing it intentionally, the rules still apply from what I read. I'll let you to change back to the old version for now while we discuss.

Actually I will change it back. John Mayor ERS (talk) 02:33, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

"Clerk, CheckUser, and/or patrolling admin comments" in an sockpuppet investigation

This edit added an editor to a list of accounts that had been looked at by a CheckUser, and found to be "Possible - Editing via web hosting ranges". Since you are not a CheckUser, you have not seen CheckUser evidence, and are in no position to make that judgement. Putting the editor there ran the risk of misleading an administrator into thinking that you were a CheckUser and had found Checkuser evidence relating to that account. Fortunately, I checked and found that you are not a CheckUser, but there is no guarantee that an administrator would make such a check rather than taking the edit on trust. Please don't edit the section of any sockpuppet investigation page headed "Clerk, CheckUser, and/or patrolling admin comments" unless and until you become a Clerk, CheckUser, or administrator. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 12:10, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Unhelpful talk page formatting

I am removing some of the formatting of this talk page, as it resulted in most of its content being hidden. Even if you know that there is other stuff there, and can read it, other editors may not be able to. While you are free to amuse yourself by adding irrelevant formatting such as colouring if you like doing such things, please bear in mind that the purpose of a talk page is for communication between editors, and anything that significantly interferes with that purpose is unhelpful. I have no idea which part of what I am removing caused the problem, nor do I propose to spend time finding out: narrowing the problem down to the relevant section of your formatting has already wasted enough of my time.

Q*bert

You seem to have made a mistake in the Q*bert article, so I reverted your last edit. You seem to believe Atari made Q*bert for some reason, I am afraid that is incorrect. Q*bert, like many other games of the time, were associated with Atari, mostly on their consoles, so I can understand your confusion. Atari did buy the rights to Q*bert some years later, and did release games like the 3D 1997 remake, so I can't fully blame you for thinking Atari made Q*bert. The real creators though were Gottlieb.

If I am not mistaken, Atari brought the franchise when Q*bert 3 came out. BustaBunny (talk) 22:37, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Your ANI comment

"I've considered changing Jak's block to a permanent site-ban because of the carnage he and his sockpuppets have done." I understand that you are obviously passionate about this matter, but what is the meaning behind comments like this? You are not an admin.TheTimesAreAChanging (talk) 02:48, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

And just so you know, there really isn't much of a difference between "indefinite block" and "site ban". We already block him on sight, per WP:DUCK, similar to a ban, since he's so bad a block evading, the only real difference would be that we could rightfully revert every single edit he makes, without question. Considering most of his pages are protected, and his other edits are terrible and reverted, or just largely unanswered talk page musings, so we have most of that covered too. So that's why I say I think we're better off just being vigilant with watching over these pages, and keeping up with the protection/blocks. I don't think it worth dragging through the pits of ANI drama when it wouldn't give much of a return for our efforts.

Side note, you mentioned that Jak may have first started as an IP back as far as 2011. I wasn't aware of that one. Do you have a link to that one? Sergecross73 msg me 15:05, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

BTW

Next time you go lying and accusing me of being users I am not, and pretending (like serge) that no one agreed with me and we were not having a civil discussion on the Sega Saturn talk page, allow me to show you what was also shown on the talk page:, which you would not have missed if you actually took the time to read:

1. [1]
2. [2]
3. [3]
4. [4]


Huh, guess I did have a civil conversation and people did agree with me and there was consensus on some issues. I don't like your other lie you wrote in your edit summary on the Saturn page either. I also do not know who Red Phoenix is and why you keep mentioning him. I never mentioned him by name ever until just now. You seem to be extremely confused, which has caused you to make a very devastating edit war. On with you lying about me adding sources.

Impossible Mission

VIDEO

Explain to me how after looking at the video, that the game is not an exploration based platformer like Metroid, Montezuma etc? Branching paths, mutiple floors, full exploration. JakIIDax (talk) 16:35, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

It's a platformer where you infiltrate Atombender's stronghold searching the installation for password pieces in computers while avoiding robots. So you don't explore as much as you search for passwords. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 16:48, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
And how is that different from most of the early 2D go anywhere platforming games? I have played the game, and if you have played it as well as you have said, you should know the game branches in multiple areas and is not straight linear. It's no different than running around trying to find keysm etc. in other similar games. Unless you can point out the difference? (not to mention the open ended design of this game was actually marketed back when this was new.) JakIIDax (talk) 17:05, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I agree. Impossible Mission cares less about exploration, but it does include branching into multiple areas and yes, it is not linear. You're just more likely to search for stuff and avoid robots than explore, but exploration can be possible. However, you're more often going to new areas than old ones. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 17:17, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Exploring does not necessarily mean you have to go back to older areas. The fact that you can basically choose your own route to new areas, when you want the way you want and everything connects together, leading to more areas old and new, seems to be exploration by definition. Take a look at the Exploration article here on Wikipedia. JakIIDax (talk) 17:23, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Okay. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 17:25, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
As you can see, you are in the game, exploring the buildings(?) with no restrictions, by your own means with a specific objective in mind. You have the complete option to go in any direction into a place you have "technically" not seen before. Look at a movie, where people will send in spies to "explore the area" or "explore the base" or those older movies about people "exploring ruins" or "exploring the cave" etc, etc.
Games like Defender, SMB, Sonic 2, Gradius, these may allow you to stage select at most but will contain nothing else required for exploration and give you usually linear or/and restricted choices in how you approach the level. Impossible Mission however, does this, so you actually explore in impossible mission. JakIIDax (talk) 17:39, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh really? Impossible Mission does not care about exploration because you're moving to the next area every single minute. Because of this, you actually DO NOT explore in Impossible Mission. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 17:42, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
This is turning more into you not knowing what exploration is then it not being about exploration. You are going to an area you have not been to to obtain an objective, check. You can go to any place in the game at any with only a few exceptions, check. There are different obstacles as you go through new areas Check, the game is not linear, check. You continue to find new areas, check. What part of this game is not exploration by definition? I showed you a direct definition. You want another one? Ok, here's the dictionary definition and the other dictionary definition. The 2nd link even breaks it down with examples. The game is has exploration. You haven't told me how it hasn't yet. You've only told me so far that you don't know the definition of exploration. JakIIDax (talk) 18:02, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
You gave me nothing but two definitions of the word "Exploration". Period. Read the whole Impossible Mission article again and compare the gameplay to the definition of the word "Exploration". }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:06, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I want you to violate WP:3RR because you are Jakandsig. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:08, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Are you acting like Jakandsig? Why? }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:11, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Proof?
Also I did show you, you still don't seem to understand the definition for some reason. I am sure a mod or other would agree with me. I have shown you everything there is to know about the word exploration and yet you still don't get what exploration is so I am not sure what to do here. What exactly are you not understanding? Is there a part that confuses you? Because we can go over it. JakIIDax (talk) 18:15, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I know and understand "Exploration" and its definition already for a long time. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:17, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
This is doubtful because you still refuse to believe that Impossible mission is exploration based when it check out on all the key parts of the definition, and you have not even explained why you think that. JakIIDax (talk) 18:19, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Are you PewDiePie? Are you Angry Video Game Nerd? Do you have a YouTube channel? And why did you start editing Wikipedia? }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:21, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
You're annoying reverts are becoming an issue. I would hate to have to go find an administrator, but at this point I am positive you know you are wrong about impossible mission and instead are posting extremely random youtube comments. I don't have a clue why you are reverting randomly but I would appreciate it if you stopped. JakIIDax (talk) 18:26, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Talk to User:Frecklefoot. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:27, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I don't post YouTube comments. I am right about Impossible Mission. You are an issue. Why not answer those 4 questions? }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:30, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
You're actually wrong about impossible mission. Exactly what is the issue here? JakIIDax (talk) 18:32, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I revert your edits because they are poor. Now here is why I don't believe Impossible Mission is exploration-based (this is just a quote from the Impossible Mission Wikipedia article):

The player takes the role of a secret agent who must stop an evil genius. Professor Elvin Atombender is believed to be tampering with national security computers. The player must penetrate Atombender's stronghold, racing against the clock to search the installation for pieces which form a password, all the while avoiding his deadly robots. Once in possession of all the password pieces, the player must correctly assemble the password pieces together and use the completed password in the main control room door, where the evil professor is hiding. Password pieces are found by searching furniture in the rooms. When searching, the player can also find "Lift Resets" and "Snoozes." They are used at computer terminals. "Lift Resets" reset all moveable platforms; "Snoozes" freeze all enemies in the room for a limited time. There are also two special rooms where additional lift resets and snoozes can be awarded for completing a musical puzzle. The location of puzzle pieces, arrangement of the rooms and elevators, and abilities of the robots are randomly selected each game, providing replay value.

There is no mention of "exploration" or "exploration-based". The issue here is your disruptive edits and incivility. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 18:34, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

The word exploration is not mentioned in the majority of games, so your excuse is poor. You continue to put no effort into looking at the definition of exploration. I can find linear games with the word explore in it, that doesn't mean their exploration based. Impossible Mission however, is.
On that note, searching an unknown territory is, especially without restrictions, a key part of exploration, which IS in your insert. Searching(which again is in your reply), especially for an objective is pretty much the core definition of exploration. Now what's your excuse? This is in those links I sent you that you said you read. So I think you have actually made it clearer the game is exploration based. JakIIDax (talk) 18:41, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

FYI

I really do appreciate your help with the sockpuppets...but please, try not to go about reverting them so much until they've been officially marked as a sock, whether it be from the reports at SPI, or me blocking them per WP:DUCK. That way, you won't get into trouble with edit warring. If they are not officially marked as socks, I think an Admin could rightfully block you. (Not to mention, we could be wrong one of these days, and if the person wasn't a sock, then you'd really be edit warring.)

Anyways, just be a little more cautious. Most of Jak's edits, while not good, are not urgent WP:BLP issues or copyright issues, so we can go back and clean up the mess post-block. Its okay to revert him some too, just not so much that it could get you blocked.

Thanks again for your assistance. Sergecross73 msg me 01:28, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Trent Reznor, Self Destruct concert, 1994.jpg

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Trent Reznor, Self Destruct concert, 1994.jpg. 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. Peripitus (Talk) 08:05, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

About Your Main Page

Mr. Gonna, I feel rather concerned about the self-description you have on your profile. This following bit is rather inappropriate as it comes off as a personal attack:

"Speaking of GAs and FAs, I am not one of those editors who far too many times don't make their articles perfect enough for GAN and/or FAC like TonyTheTiger, Dr. Blofeld, Chris Gualtieri, and WikiRedactor. I don't do that, and I prefer making articles good enough to pass GARs and FACs easily."

I would take that down if I were you if you don't want to face scrutiny. It's one thing if you thought the Miley Cyrus articles (or any other articles) nominated for GA aren't ready for that status, but don't belittle the nominators or simply quickfail GAN's simply because you don't like their genre(s). If there are problems within an article, go into detail. Users need reviewers to give a detailed analysis of what to address within the article during GAN. If you have questions about reviewing GAN's, feel free to ask. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 21:08, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

"Censorship"

What the hell are you talking about? My revert of the archive tags did not censor anything. Stop re-archiving the thread when it should not have been archived in the first place. Discussion was ongoing and that does not mean that one uninvolved person's prudeness and loss of patience with the thread means they get to shut it down, nor do you get to shut it down by edit warring with me. Consider this the edit warring warning.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 16:54, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

If you have nothing constructive to contribute to the discussion on WT:VG then stay out of it. Your "I'm so happy for you" and "okay" don't add anything and seem to be trolling.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 06:45, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Quake (video game) copyedit request

Hi, you requested a copyedit of Quake (video game) at WP:GOCE, aiming to reach GA status. I have a few questions about how you plan to approach this.

First, huge swathes of the article are either completely unsourced, or reliant solely on primary sources. While this is mostly acceptable for the Plot and Gameplay sections, it's not acceptable even there for value judgements like "the most traditional ideology", "the most popular", "they serve no purpose", "considered unique for its time", "A notable participant was...", "...this concept was scrapped due to..." and so on.

For all other sections, reliable sources are essential.

Related to this are my concerns about the "Mods and add-ons" and Speedruns sections. While I agree that these topics deserve sections of their own (because they are key to the impact, legacy and ongoing popularity of the game), the current level of detail seems grossly unjustified. For example, discussing multiple individual recordings of Quake gameplay, right down to precise dates and the numbers of minutes and seconds involved, without any secondary source verifying the importance of these events, will not (or at least, should not), make it through GA.

Normally when copyediting for GA I would take a section like this and reduce it to appropriate weighting; which would mean one or two short paragraphs instead of the current four long paragraphs, with the focus on those aspects that the secondary sources had said were important.

But without secondary sources, this is difficult. Also, I'm not even sure that it's what you want me to do. Is removing most of several key sections of the article, really the sort of copyedit that you want done?

From a grammar and WP:MOS point of view, it's mostly nearly there already. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 19:55, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
