DJ Peterson[edit]

The link you added on the DJ Peterson page is broken. Also, the information you added is incorrect. Zunino was drafted 3rd overall. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.16.215.84 (talk) 01:30, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

I fixed the link. Also, the information was initially correct when I first added it, but a later edit made the sentence incorrect: Peterson is the highest drafted player in New Mexico Lobos history, not Mariners. Zappa24Mati 01:44, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Your revert of my edit on the page about Roblox[edit]

I should have cited my other sources. Those include Youtube, and items on Roblox (decals, models)

@TZLNCTV: YouTube videos are not considered reliable, as anyone can upload a video and make a claim. The Decal is also not a reliable source, since the description itself is not enough, and like YouTube, self-published sources are not considered reliable. For the hacking incident, the only way for it to be mentioned here is through either a reliable source, like a news group, or by the developers itself. I believe the game's developers have a blog, which can be accessed from the site itself, and if one of the developers wrote a blog entry about it (a passing mention is not notable), it can be added.

@ZappaOMati: Erm, here the blog: http://blog.roblox.com/2012/04/april-1st-site-issue-and-update/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by TZLNCTV (talkcontribs)
@TZLNCTV: Alright, thanks for providing it. While the blog does mention the eventual shutdown due to "site issues", I doubt it'll be enough to be added to the article, since one who's new to Roblox and reading the page would believe it was just for routine maintenance, when it was much worse; David Baszucki didn't say exactly what the cause was, which - in the case of the videos - was various hackings, it seems, and you can't add in details that the source doesn't provide. For the most part, if you can find another blog post from the developers, or a reliable source (as I said, a news agency, for example), that actually explains what happens, then it might merit inclusion.

@ZappaOMati: Found a source. http://roblox.wikia.com/wiki/April_Fools_Hack_2012?file=Ropacalypse.png Proof of moderatorship: https://twitter.com/BrianReddus & http://www.roblox.com/User.aspx?ID=34300. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TZLNCTV (talkcontribs)
@TZLNCTV: Twitter and Wikia usually are not reliable sources, especially the latter, like Wikipedia. As I had said, if you can find a reliable source, like a news agency, that discusses the hackings in detail, then it might be considered. Blog posts from anyone not affiliated with Roblox, profiles and tweets are not enough. Zappa24Mati 03:04, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

I've added the 'reviewer' right to your account, as I believe you've evidenced yourself worthy of the ability to deal with Pending Changes. You might want to take a look through Wikipedia:Reviewing. Good luck! - The Bushranger One ping only 04:17, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Chris conte[edit]

How about an updated picture on the Chris conte page. Instead of a picture of the side of his head.Gobears17 (talk) 19:30, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

@Gobears17: Sure, go ahead. If you can find one that does not violate any copyrights. Zappa24Mati 19:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
