Meteor categories[edit]

I restored them--what did you find wrong with them? • Lawrence Cohen 06:26, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Removal of External Links[edit]

Might I ask why you removed links to TW.Org and the TWC Wiki on several Total War related articles. They both are very interesting and infomative resources. --Omanes 09:44, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Removal of External Links[edit]

Wikipedia is not a directory for links. Read the official articles on the matter before you go around deleting external links. The official stance is that if an article is ONLY a link and a short description it should not be on the website. You are deleting valueble resources around wikipedia, please stop.74.225.165.224 17:59, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

The Outfit Editing[edit]

If you look at almost all video game pages within Wikipedia you'll find a detailed list of Vehicles, Weapons, Characters and areas of which the charaters play. it's a shame that you've singled out The Outfit (video game) while running around in your crusade against information. There are thousands of pages for you to begin work on in order for you to make Wikipedia more Skywalker friendly. --Jon Holly 07:15, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Oink's Pink Palace[edit]

Not wanting to enter a revert war here, but the proof is right in the link. They state in their press release "This extremely lucrative and creative scheme consisted of a private file sharing website being set up. Membership was by invitation only. The site allowed the uploading and downloading of pre-release music and media to thousands of members. Members paid donations via debit or credit cards, ensuring their continued access to the site. The payments were received electronically into the web site company accounts." and "This is big business, with hundreds of thousands of pounds being made. Cleveland Police have worked closely with the IFPI and the BPI on this investigation and are already on the trail of the money generated, expected to be in the region of hundreds of thousands of pounds, via the Proceeds of Crime Act." make you think he made hundreds of thousands of pounds by only giving membership to people who paid, this was simply not the case.

OiNK donation site[edit]

Hey. I'm filing an enforcement request against the user User_talk:205.211.141.243 for violating the WP:3RR rule by repeatedly adding the link to the donation site. Just thought I'd let you know so you don't file a duplicate report. MrVibrating 05:46, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

After looking at the enforcement page I realized that for the request to work (I think?) the user needs to have reverted after a 3RR warning is placed on his/her talk page. I placed such a warning and 205.211.141.243 hasn't reverted since. I'll place the complaint if he/she does. MrVibrating 06:32, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions to the Silent Hunter 4: Wolves of the Pacific article, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

Edit[edit]

Please tell me why you labelled my redirections as vandalism. It is not it you known anything about indian history. Nayak,naidu,naiker,naik were all variations of nayak, it was a title and had nothing to do with caste so i redirected tit so a page that explained it as such. what is the problem with it, please enlighten my simple mind--Telugubidda (talk) 04:23, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Beware of user Ghanadar galpa[edit]

Please let me aware you of user Ghanadar galpa. User Ghanadar galpa seems to be an irrational Indophilic propagandist. See the Talk:Human rights in India. There he have falsely accused me that I have violated WP:CIVIL by boldifying words and refering him in third person in a article talk page? He had added POV texts in Human rights in India page. Custodial death is very high in India, torture in widespread in police custody. But user Ghanadar galpa tried to make it seems like that the police is innocent and the custodial deaths are exaggerated. In the Custodial death section of that article, he added texts like "The media in India enjoys a wide measure of freedom and has enormous reach and power. Technological advances witnessed during the last few decades have provided the media with new abilities hitherto denied them", which I later deleted. He is accusing me that I am not neutral. But the truth is that, it seems user Ghanadar galpa cannot tolerate any article or text which depict human rights violation in India, which depict violence against non-Indian religions in India. As I am trying to bring the truth in light, he is accusing me that I am not neutral. In India, violence against Christians by Hindu-nationalists is a issue. Conversion to Christianity or trying to convert someone to Christianity may result in death in India. His motivation is very clear. He is using wikipedia as a tool to spread a dirty Indophilic propaganda. See this[1]. He have just whitewashed the mention of anti-Indian sentiment in Sri Lanka. Why? Seems very clear. He could not tolerate the texts "The atrocities committed by the Indian Peacekeeping Force and support for LTTE in southern India".

  • User Ghanadar galpa is presently busy in a dirty propaganda campaign against me and articles I have created. He is more likely to disrupt the articles and texts he claim "anti-Indian".
  • He used several wikipedia policies abusively. He nominated the article Anarchism in India for speedy deletion claiming it attack page. See this[2]. Anarchism an attack page? Please note anarchism has nothing to do with attck. In wikipedia, there are articles depicting anarchist movements in various countries. Thus this article depict anarchist movement in India. See Talk:Anarchism in India. Also see List of anarchist movements by region. Currenty he has nominated Anarchism in India for deletion to spread anti-Anarchist propaganda.
  • He also used anonymous IP address besides his username to edit wikipedia. The IP address 70.112.72.233 is used by this user for editing same texts. See this[3] and this[4]. This IP address has good contributions to the article on Bharatiya Janata Party, a political party in India known for there Hindutva ideology. See this IP address's contribution to the Hinduism in Malaysia[5] - added information on anti-Hindu incidents.
  • See his edit in Deepa Mehta, a film-director faced opposition by Hindu fundamentalists. He added criticism section. His intentions are clear. He is trying to disparge subjects critical to Hindu fundamentalism.
  • I have created an article Anti-Christian violence in India. I know fanatic Hindu fundamentalists will not be able to tolerate this article. User Ghanadar galpa has nominated this article for deletion.
  • I have created an article Crime against foreigners in India. Do you know rape incidents on foreigners are increasing in India? Scam are prevalent in India with scam artists preying for foreign tourists? I have added all these information in that article. But some user have nominated it for deletion claiming it non-notable. Now user Ghanadar galpa is abusingly trying to distract the debate there. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Crime against foreigners in India and see [6] and [7]. He is now busy to distract votes from favour of articles I have created which this guy see "anti-Indian". I want to acknowledge good editors these facts.

The Wheelman[edit]

Based on the new citations I incorporated, the film will be based on the video game. Therefore, the video game is the central topic at The Wheelman, and the film will be based on it at The Wheelman (film). It's not the other way around. I'm trying to fix the page histories as a result of the content being moved around. So have faith and let an admin do the history merge. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 18:56, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

It's kind of tricky to explain the page moves, but here are the facts:
  1. The Wheelman was originally the article for the film in development, while The Wheelman (video game) was the article for the video game in development.
  2. When I improved The Wheelman (video game) with information about both the video game and the film, it was shown that the film would follow the video game. Per topic centralization, it's appropriate to have the "source material" have just the name.
  3. Since The Wheelman was about a film based on the video game, I moved it to The Wheelman (film).
  4. I could not move The Wheelman (video game) directly to The Wheelman like you suggested -- a {{db-histmerge}} has to take place because The Wheelman already existed as a redirect.
  5. The end products will be The Wheelman, about the video game, and The Wheelman (film), a film based on said video game.
However, per the notability guidelines for future films, I think that The Wheelman (film) should redirect to The Wheelman#Film adaptation because the project is not yet in production. This is because the film is not at all guaranteed to be made -- see the placement of Spider-Man 4 and Jurassic Park IV as a couple of examples. Let me know if you have any questions! :) —Erik (talkcontrib) - 19:27, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
To be honest, I'm not sure why. :) I've used WP:RM in the past, but perhaps I wasn't thinking in this regard. The histmerge should take place within the day any way. Are you OK with the merge taking place? Video game-related films don't come to life very easily at all -- take a look at Driver (film), Onimusha (film), and Spy Hunter (film) as examples. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 19:42, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
True, an edit count is always nice (I like to update mine every 1K edits) but sometimes we do work that does not necessarily show how many edits we put in it. For example, I am working on a subpage User:Erik/The Painted Veil for The Painted Veil (2006 film), and when I copy the subpage to the article, I'll be putting up {{db-author}} on the subpage, losing 20-30 edits. I'm sure you can make these 11 up on another article! —Erik (talkcontrib) - 20:01, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Right now, The Wheelman is about the video game, and The Wheelman (film) redirects to The Wheelman#Film adaptation since production has not begun on the film. The production of a film is not guaranteed before it actually begins shooting due to factors like scripting issues, budget issues, casting issues, etc. So if production on the film begins, The Wheelman (film) can be revived as a stand-alone article for the film. A full film article layout isn't appropriate for such projects in development because there isn't a guarantee that there will be a film. If the studio is able, when the video game comes out in 2008, the film will begin production shortly after and have its own article. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 16:45, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Weird, I see images just fine. It may be a local problem... do other websites show images? —Erik (talkcontrib) - 17:46, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Hmm, go to a webpage on which images aren't showing, and while holding Ctrl, click "Refresh" at the top. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 17:56, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

I noticed that you were doing some clean-up at 2008 in film (have it on my watchlist, too). You may be interested in checking out WP:FUTFILM, a department of WikiProject Films. I'm one of the main stewards, trying to keep track of upcoming films. (The Wheelman is listed at WP:FUTFILM/Merges, actually.) You should take a look at WP:FUTFILM/Production to see what films are actually being made as opposed to being just in development. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 21:29, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Yep, if you read my user page, upcoming films are my hobby here on Wikipedia. I work on some older projects like Fight Club (film) (which I consider my best work so far), but I like to follow upcoming films to be "in the know". If you have any questions about the department or the WikiProject, feel free to ask me! :) —Erik (talkcontrib) - 21:35, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
In the film industry, there are many announced projects that do not necessarily make it to production. This is why we have the notability guidelines for future films -- just because a project has a script or a director does not mean the film is guaranteed to be made. For example, I put Time Share up for deletion because the project was announced in June 2005, but there has been zero progress since -- kind of similar to The Wheelman. Check out the following projects that have not entered production, being instead stuck in development hell: Ant-Man (film), Castlevania (film), Fahrenheit 451 (2008 film), The Flash (film), The Hobbit (2010 film), The Jetsons (film), Jurassic Park IV, Knight Rider (film), Logan's Run (2010 film), Magneto (film), Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run, and Voltron (film) are some examples that support the logic for the notability guideline. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 21:53, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Supermatch Soccer external links erased[edit]

Dear SkyWalker.

I don't understand why you erased the two external links in the entry Supermatch Soccer. Perhaps the first one wasn't very interesting, but the second is the only website in the Internet where I could download Supermatch Soccer demo: other sites have it but protected with password or simply don't work when trying to download (and the official website doesn't exist). So I think at least the second link should be re-added, at it's a game not sold nowadays and difficult to in find second hand market.

HOMM V external links[edit]

Good evening. A few months back you removed all fan-based external links from the Heroes of Might and Magic V article.

Recently, the local definitive gaming magazine slammed the official documentation as inexcusably lacking. It gave high praise to the fan manual that was behind one of those links, mentioned that it had eventually acquired the blessing of the publisher and developers, and gave an URL. Definitely a valuable external site, and I see nothing that would forbid it in the relevant one among our many rules.

This is not a big deal, just a sign that links to fansites can be valid content. --Kizor 21:29, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

I have to say you did a damn great job cleaning up the page. I wanted to do it myself, but thanks to you, I can think about doing something else. Keep up the good work.

Range block would be extreme I think. We will keep an eye I'm sure & while they keep up the vandalism and declare a COI (below :)) then I'm sure we will deal with it.

Yes, 78.148.100.25, we know you own a company and this behaviour probably not real good for its reputation with either the big search engines or with folks in Glasgow -- try a Google search on "Equilibrium Web Design".
Unlike Wikipedia, DMOZ is a web directory specifically designed to categorize and list all Internet sites; if you've not already gotten your sites listed there, I encourage you to do so -- it's a more appropriate venue for your links than our wikis. Their web address: http://www.dmoz.org/.
Should you find yourself penalized in any search engine rankings and you believe that to be a result of blacklisting here, you should deal directly with the search engine's staff. We do not have any arrangements with any of the search engine companies; if they're using our blacklist it's purely on their own initiative. --A. B. (talk)

Theatre Of War (computer game) edits[edit]

I have noticed that you have removed lots of review links and also a link to the publisher and also changed the publishers (c) name!?!?!

I would like to inform you that the publisher is called Battlefront.com NOT Battlefront. I don't mind about the removing of the link but as there is no wikipedia page on them so i thought it suitable. Also I would like to ask you why you removed some review links and not others? You say

Removing advertising and other spam links

Well how come some sites are and some sites arn't? have you a prejudice angainst some sites? The removing of the patch and feature links is ok but i would leave it if it was up to me. i shall revert to leaving all the reviews on and leaving the publishers name to their correct name but shall leave out the patch and features. I look forward to hearing from you. Pingualot (talk) 17:07, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

2008 in video gaming[edit]

Concerning this edit where you reverted the changes to the table in 2008 in video gaming, if you were to read Talk:2008 in video gaming#Bring back the old system, you would see that three other users and myself have objected to the use of that table format, and were in favour of the table format in 2007 in video gaming. --Silver Edge (talk) 08:59, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Deletion Query[edit]

What is up with deleting community resource links for the Sins page? The links are NOT spam. They are legitimate community links. If you doubt it check the official forums or visit the sites for that matter. I have been working in the Sins community for about a year now as a beta tester and community developer and I added the links. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.212.52.35 (talk) 19:47, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

I did not remove any links from sins. --SkyWalker (talk) 01:22, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Maybe I might be misunderstand something then. When I check the edit history is shows you as the one who removed the links. I just checked it again and it should you as remove the links again. So I undid the edit. Modding and Clan activity are a major part of the title. They are as important as the reviews for the game. We are trying to organize clans and start modding projects but this are going slow and the full tool set is not out yet. But many more projects and a few clans will be added. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.212.52.35 (talk) 06:41, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

It is not my misunderstanding. It is you who have made the mistake of saying sins instead of saying sins of a solar empire. Coming back to your argument. It might be important to the game but it is irrelevant when it comes to adding it in wikipedia. Please read WP:External Links. Fansites is not tolerated and adding clan links such has you had done is not tolerated. So please stop adding your sites and repeated offense would cause both your links to be blacklisted. --SkyWalker (talk) 13:36, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Ummm.... I dont know all the little details about wiki but are you telling me using "sins" instead of the full name is an issue? Why would that be so? Also I see community site & mod information links on other game titles such as Eve and World of WarCraft to name two off the top of my head. So I don’t understand your "not tolerated comment".
