Speedy deletion nomination of Adaptive tile refresh[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Adaptive tile refresh requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

Adaptive tile refresh[edit]

Thanks for contributing the new article Adaptive tile refresh. However, one of Wikipedia's core policies is that material must be verifiable by being clearly attributed to reliable sources. Please help by adding sources to the article you created and by making it clear how the sources support the material. See here for how to do inline referencing. Many thanks! PS If you need any help, you can look at Help:Contents/Editing Wikipedia or ask at Wikipedia:New contributors' help page, or just ask me. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 22:25, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on World of Xilm requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Disambiguation link notification for November 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of PC exclusive titles, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages PC, Action and 3DO (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.

Speedy deletion nomination of RPCS3[edit]

Hello Wikinium,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged RPCS3 for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Trivialist (talk) 03:56, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

That video is not a reliable source, and the article still gives no indication of why being the first Playstation 3 emulator to run a commercial title is notable. Trivialist (talk) 04:31, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

List of free PC titles[edit]

Although it probably qualifies for speedy deletion, I have tagged List of free PC titles to be merged into List of freeware video games. Please begin merging your list into that one so that we can redirect your page to the existing one. I may do so if I remember. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 23:50, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

    • The contents of this list do not fit there. This is a list of freeware as well as free-to-play games for the PC only. Thank you for your recommendation, but doing so would be destructive to the knowledge contained in this list. Wikinium (talk) 23:54, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of List of free PS4 titles[edit]

Hello Wikinium,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged List of free PS4 titles for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Trivialist (talk) 23:07, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

  • I understand, but I plan on adding content to it later tonight. How does one create an article without a lot of content and avoid immediate deletion?Wikinium (talk) 23:08, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
    • You could work on it in your sandbox or as a draft article in the draft namespace before moving it over to article space. Sam Walton (talk) 23:19, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
    • That sounds like it would work rather well. Thank you. Wikinium (talk) 23:36, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

September 2014[edit]

Hi there. I've seen your edits around the project, and a few things:

  • You definitely can't make an article like List of video game ROM repositories.
    • First off, its a legal issue. You can't just make a list of websites where you can download illegal games. Not okay for Wikipedia.
    • Secondly, you're not going to want to create lists that consist largely of subjects that do not have their own articles. Its probably going to fail WP:LISTN if you do.
    • Thirdly, its never a good idea to, in general, create an article with no referenced. That's the fast track to get your article deleted, and I've seen yo do it more than once, beyond this article.
  • Second topic edits like this are not appropriate either. You may warn editors stop vandalizing articles on their user talk pages, but you should not be labeling them as vandals on their User page. You really shouldn't ever edit other people's User page, unless you're cleaning up vandalism from it. So please, no more comments like that, even if they are a vandal.
  • Third topic: This one is more advice - I'd recommmend not making any more "List of exclusive system x games" type articles. They're not necessary, when you can so easily just create an "exclusive" column at the prexisting list. See the List of Wii U software article as an example. If you want to see all the games that are Wii U exclusive, then just click on the "exclusive" heading, and it'll sort the titles automatically. It'd be better to clean up or create these columns than make new, very incomplete articles, like you've been doing. It looks like a bunch have been nominated for deletion as it is, so I know its not just me here either. Sergecross73 msg me 16:47, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
