Should this list be in A-Z order? It would make it much easier to find people. Blake (Talk·Edits) 16:41, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Not sure. It doesn't sound like a bad idea though. I still think the inactive list should be ordered by how long members have been inactive. Right now, the users on the top had edited more recently, while the bottom users last edited in June. I think that will make it easier to monitor activity.
For more view points, you may want to post this at WT:VG because I don't think anybody other than me has this page watchlisted. (Guyinblack25 talk 17:18, 16 September 2009 (UTC))
I boldly made the change, but didn't bother messing with the Inactive list. -sesuPRIME 17:40, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
IMO, the inactive list should also alphabetized so that it is easier for someone to find their name and move it. Why does it matter how long someone has been inactive? Also, I don't see why the active members needs to be alphabetized, and I don't think most people will actually read the header and put their name in alphabetical order.

I guess it would be better for the Inactive list to be alphabetical, too. Is there a way to automatically re-arrange it? Also, two users have added their names to Active since I edited the header and they both correctly placed them in alphabetical order. Plus, the membership list at the Pokémon WikiProject has been alphabetical for as long as I can remember and we rarely have a new user add their name out of the correct order, and it's just a minor fix when they do, so I think we'll be fine. -sesuPRIME 19:21, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
I think alphabetical order is more natural. "Monitoring activity" seems kinda unnecessary. Megata Sanshiro (talk) 20:40, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
I changed it. MrKIA11 (talk) 20:45, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
I believe the activity is intended to remove editors from the list. Having editors that have not editing in a year all grouped together makes it easy to remove them from the list. (Guyinblack25 talk 20:51, 16 September 2009 (UTC))
I thought the point of this was to wait until a point when everyone that is active has moved their name, and then notify those that are left under "inactive", regardless of how long ago they edited. MrKIA11 (talk) 20:59, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
You are quite right. I just realized we were talking about two different time frames. For this first go around, alphabetized would work better. After that, maintaining it by activity would work better. (Guyinblack25 talk 21:11, 16 September 2009 (UTC))
Agreed, but does that mean a bot will be periodically updating the page to put members in correct order? MrKIA11 (talk) 21:34, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
I believe it has yet to be determined if a bot will check editors' activities and update the list accordingly. :-\ (Guyinblack25 talk 22:24, 16 September 2009 (UTC))
Meh, you can just use Ctrl+F to find your name, no need to organize it. And if the messages are on the talk page and the editor doesn't respond, I think it can safely be assumed that they're not "active" members.--ZXCVBNM (TALK) 21:00, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
How about making the list into sortable wikitable format? Tavatar (talk) 20:41, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Right now I think it wouldn't make sense because we don't have any other information for other columns (I assume they would be related to activity?), but when a bot starts updating the page regularly, that might be good.MrKIA11 (talk) 22:49, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

What is the French word for "Guild hosting service"?[edit]

I am not a member of WikiProject Video Games and I'm not a gamer. I am doing work on cleaning up the wiki category Category:Pages with no translate target where the English Wikipedia article has an Expand __ tag on it but doesn't point to the article in the foreign-language Wikipedia for it, making it harder to generate a Google Translate of the article from the foreign language into English. One of those pages happens to be "Guild hosting service" where there's an Expand French tag at the top but no link to the French Wikipedia article about the matter. I am not able to find the article in the French Wikipedia, so I was wondering if anybody on WikiProject Video Games knew what the French word is for "guild hosting service", please.

Question: What is the French word for "guild hosting service"?

Thank you in advance.Buspirtraz (talk) 08:37, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

You may get a better response if you ask your question on WT:VG, as this talk page is a quiet backwater. - X201 (talk) 08:45, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
