MotorStorm updates and servers shutdown[edit]

Hi, i noticed you rejected my edits for the MotorStorm page at least two times, but you also removed info not added by me, which also written in the page for the game sequel, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, and generally most PS3 exclusive titles which saw the closure of the multiplayer modes.

You said that forums are not reliable sources, however that's the only source available, as they discuss about the availability of the game updates, the attempts at getting in touch with the developers (there are links to Playstation Blog pages with people getting responses and updates about the server status) and the return of the game updates. The first reply is on page 2 of that "source". I can personally confirm that the game updates were still downloadable as of February/March 2014, and they're probably still available, as they're required for DLC compatibility, and DLC is available on Playstation Store, for a price. I just wanted to make the edit as the game used an old system to get the game updates. 99% of the games have the updates available on the main Playstation Network servers, while some of the earlier games, like that game, Resistance 1, and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, had the updates on separate servers, and when they went down, they took the patches away.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.180.0.228 (talkcontribs) 22:41, 2 January 2015‎

Edge 2002[edit]

Hi, can you help me with sourcing this claim from Edge found on two locations in Wikipedia for the Elite article?

Edge Retrospective awards In a December 2002 retro gaming special, Edge retrospectively awarded ten-out-of-ten ratings to two titles released before the magazine's launch:

  • Elite (originally released in 1984)

Elite (video game)#Reception The game was retrospectively awarded 10/10 by the multi-format magazine Edge—together with only 2 other games — Preceding unsigned comment added by SHOlafsson (talkcontribs) 16:43, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

@SHOlafsson: Unfortunately that's one of the few that I haven't got. Sorry. - X201 (talk) 18:45, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Ashacekar[edit]

Hi,what's up?I have done some changes to subway surfers page which you usually don't like.You have not reverted it from a while now.So,can I take your silence as acceptance.I saw your editing history,ur pretty experienced.I just do editing for pass time and make pages more informative.A few of your wikipedia policies are very stupid like in case of uploading photo.U sometimes told me to talk so I am talking to u,don't get angry.JUST KEEP SMILING.BYE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ashacekar (talkcontribs) 16:00, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

No, its not acceptance. I've tried to help you make this article a good Wikipedia article, and I realise you don't want that help. I urge you to go to WT:VG and ask them to point out to you what is wrong with the article. They are the people who made the "stupid rules". Good luck with the article. - X201 (talk) 16:34, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

The Escapists Image[edit]

I edited that page before you and I wasn't able to input the front cover image. Did you input the current image? If you did, thank you. I only ask if you could possibly enlarge the image to fit more 'centerly'. Thank you, and please write back. ElectableBag (talk) 01:30, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Not sure what you mean by "more central", the image is in the centre of the infobox. - X201 (talk) 09:51, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

GTA 4[edit]

Why are you removing official system requirements from its article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sk2257682 (talkcontribs) 12:11, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Because the WikiProject Video games members have built a consensus agreement that System requirements should only be mentioned in articles if the requirements are especially notable - See point number 12 on the WP:VGSCOPE section of the guidelines. Also, please read WP:3RR, as you have already broken it and are liable to get your account blocked if you revert the GTA IV article again. - X201 (talk) 12:31, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

On calming waters[edit]

(This is just my reading of the situation and an attempt to calm the waters) Izno, I think what Soetermans is complaining about is that he was asking for people to express their interpretation of phrases like "Neutral and accurate", instead you've focussed on dismantling his comment, rather than just add your own opinion of what "Neutral and accurate" means. - X201 (talk) 06:55, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Part of any discussion should be advancing a positive message ("I am for this") as well disagreeing with a disagree-ee's message ("I am not for that"). In defense of performing the second action, this is a tried-and-true style for any discussion (and is especially desired in a debate forum or competition). It helps to clarify predominantly where differences lie as well as to advance the most logical points in the discussion (which sometimes may be in the form of the positive message and sometimes the other). In both of his separate questions I advanced my own message and disagreed with his own. (In fact, I only disagreed with his w.r.t. "encyclopedic understanding".)

Lastly, Soertermans did not advance a neutral question, especially in respect to "encyclopedic understanding". I would be more agreeable to the notion that he was only looking for outside opinions if he had made his first question less pointed, as he did in the second section "neutral and accurate". --Izno (talk) 01:13, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

TFD[edit]

Remove all the templates you want, but it is your responsibility to keep the links, not others'. Richard75 (talk) 16:45, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

When used as an external link, the link as well as the template are to be removed @Martijn Hoekstra: makes it quite clear in his closing statement.
"The result of the discussion was remove external links using this template," and "the only reasonable action is to remove all external links that use this template". He said that where the template is used as a reference it needs to be substituted. That is what I've done, I've only removed it from articles where it was an external link. There are 24 articles where its used as a reference, these will be worked on, and find a more reliable alternative reference if possible. You seem to be suggesting that I've interpreted the closing discussion incorrectly, but I'm struggling to see how I have. - X201 (talk) 17:05, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Adding References[edit]

Okay I'll add references like you said from now on. As you can see from the edit that I just made to Assassination Classroom, I am now doing it properly.The Editor 155 (talk) 01:10, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Also I just created the page Blues And Bullets with all the references added correctly so I have the hang of it now, thanks for showing me how to do it.The Editor 155 (talk) 01:31, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Closed London stations[edit]

Why are you making edits like this or this? --Redrose64 (talk) 13:10, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Helping to clear the TFD backlog. This TFD decision in November 2014 was to merge the contents of {{Infobox closed London station}} into {{Infobox London station}}. Because some of the fields don't transfer over on a one to one basis, I need to check which fields are used and which are not, and also what they contain, so that I can then plan for which fields to map them to. The reason for avoiding the redirects is so that I can scan the affected articles easier. Running each scan three times and then collating the results is a massive pain. By avoiding the redirect I can scan all articles and all fields in one pass. And then put a plan of action forward for the appropriate WikiProjects to agree on. - X201 (talk) 14:23, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
OK, so long as it's being assessed on a parameter by param basis. I've seen TfDs merges go through with an assumption that since two templates have certain similarly-named params, they are necessarily used for the same purpose. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:28, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm going to list all the proposed mappings on the template talk page and notify the WikiProjects that use it. That should hopefully avoid me making any wrong interpretations or assumptions. As it stands, some of the fields don't exist and they'll need to make a decision to either create a new field or move the field contents into the prose. - X201 (talk) 15:34, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Regarding edits like this - the default width used by {{infobox closed London station}} is 240px, but the initial "x" in |imagesize=x240px indicates that the height is to be 240px. I've been doing this for upright images, so that the image occupies approximately the same physical area as a horizontal image; this in turn means that they don't dominate the infobox.
If {{infobox closed London station}} does get merged with {{infobox London station}}, one of them needs to change its default image size, since {{infobox closed London station}} uses 240px and {{infobox London station}} uses 280px (recently changed from 240px). These are both different from {{infobox GB station}}, {{infobox UK disused station}} and {{infobox UK heritage station}} which all use 265px. --Redrose64 (talk) 12:39, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
@Redrose64:I've undone any where I changed the image size. I've also spotted that imagesize is an undocumented feature of {{infobox London station}}, so it looks like there's a good chance that it can be copied over on a one-to-one basis. - X201 (talk) 13:14, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Scan req[edit]

Hey X201, I'm looking for scans of the Yoshi's Island articles in Edge, namely the original (#26, September 1995) and the GBA release (#117), if you have a moment. Thanks! czar  01:15, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

In regards to the "notable" tag on Running with Rifles[edit]

Hello and thank you for your contribution on Running with Rifles. I'm confused why you added the {{notable}} tag on the page. There are plenty of sources there and it was recently created. I am still working on it, on and off. I don't see why it should be deleted. Anarchyte (talk) 08:30, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

It not saying its going to be deleted, its just a warning that in its present condition its references are not up to the standard required. There are only two references that are not Primary sources(people developing or marketing the game), articles need secondary sources to avoid bias, so that they present a neutral point of view. Notability is measured by the number of independent reports and reviews in independent sources like magazines and websites. - X201 (talk) 08:43, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Keeping Wikipedia Expanding Not Shrinking[edit]

Hello User:X201 sorry for disturbing you. The reason I am writing you is we all love Wikipedia and we want it expanding. However there is a discussion going on to delete a notable game article because of biased opinions. I saw that you edited this article: Final_Fantasy_Record_Keeper and let it stay for further expansion, update and keep growing Wikipedia. But I am also totally agree with you to let articles stay for improvements and expand Wikipedia. So I believe you are a neutral, professional, objective and who believes in expanding Wikipedia not shrinking it type of person. So I would like you to check out this discussion Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/MonsterMMORPG_(2nd_nomination) and make your comment based on references it has. References are here Talk:MonsterMMORPG. Please feel free to delete my message to you after you read it. Thank you very much have a nice day.176.233.41.152 (talk) 14:29, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
