Google Doodle version claim seems incorrect[edit]

It sounds like a wrong claim that in October 8 2010 there was a Google doodle for Minesweeper. The doodle search page for that date only shows [1] and [2], neither of which has anything to do with Minesweeper, and searching for 'Mines' or 'Minesweeper' gives no results at all. I think that claim can be removed. --pgimeno (talk) 19:39, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Removal of Critisism[edit]

The Critisism section had numerous problems 1.) The International Campaign to Ban Winmine is NOT a notable or well-known cause. The website does not even exist anymore, and most references on Google are to abbreviation sites. 2.) The blog post about changing the mines to flowers is only on the Wayback Machine now, meaning that the only one reference was by a blog/person that has been deleted from public internet. A notable cause would have an explosion of resources, and Microsoft would probably say something about it. 3.) The linked references do not say Ubisoft created the ICBW. The article states that only 696 computers have been demined. Being that Minesweeper comes with every operating system, it is statistically unacceptable to say that the ICBW is notable. Additoinally, it is highly improbable that Ubisoft would dedicate time and money to a relatively thin controversy.

As a result, controversy was nuked. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:23, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Late mention of flags[edit]

In the "overview" part flags are not mentioned before chording and then only indirectly. That's weird and possibly confusing. Judith Sunrise (talk) 00:03, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
