Deletion[edit]

I created this article a few days ago and it was immediately deleted on the grounds that it constituted "advertising for a product". This game is 20 years old and no longer being sold, at least outside of Ebay. Is there some legal issue with the use of the word "professional" in the title? I know the game was released in the U.S. with a different title, maybe for that reason. 2fort5r (talk) 01:20, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

  • I suspect the problem is more in the tone of the article, which reads like advertising copy off the back of the box. Beeblebrox (talk) 01:24, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I took a stab at improving the tone, and I've added an image to the infobox. I don't think it would qualify for speedy deletion at this point. Beeblebrox (talk) 01:38, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for the help. 2fort5r (talk) 01:47, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
