- Should we add a section about major indie games news sources or something like that? Some of the content of Independent video game development is also relevant here? What are your ideas? --IndieGamesGermany (talk) 21:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

IVGD really needs to be merged here. I wrote this from scratch using only reliable secondary source material; so the progress towards merge has been going slowly, since IVGD is basically original research.
What news sources do you mean? There are a lot and Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate list of things. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 21:25, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I was thinking about places like TIGSource (mentioned in the other article). But you're right that there are many and making a representative list is difficult. I asked because there seems to be a lot of confusion about which sites are considered "major." --IndieGamesGermany (talk) 22:52, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't know by what criteria sources like TIGSource were included in IVGD article; but definitely not based on secondary sources. So that is really original research. Unless someone independent makes a list of "major" Indie news sources, we should not speculate. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 09:42, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Community Section[edit]

Do you think we should integrate information in the community section into the bulk of the article? Currently, the information in the Community section is quite sparse and an independent section isn't necessary. Any thoughts on this? Picklebobdogflog (talk) 23:23, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Latter half of the 2000s[edit]

Does this not mean like 2500 and later? Like if your reading this in the holy year of the lord 3412, and you read "Latter half of the 2000s" one will probably assume somewhere between 2500 and 3000. I feel quite confident that one is meant to say between 2005 and 2010, or one is deliberately trying to be vague because one has no real data concerning the issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:30, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Saying "the latter half of the 2000s" is implicitly the decade based on how that standard works in most English works; if we meant the century, we'd have used "21st century", or "2nd millennium" if that was the case. --MASEM (t) 14:53, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
