Lack of technical specifications in the article[edit]

Contrary to the other video game consoles like the Megadrive and the NES, there are absolutely no technical details about the SNES in the "Technical Specifications" chapter. No information whatsoever about the resolution, screen modes, number of sprites, number of sound channels, etc. It could also provide the physical dimensions of the console. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 186.214.200.18 (talk) 13:21, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Go back to 2015 and you get a comprehensive technical specification. Somebody deleted it for whatever reason.Anss123 (talk) 10:37, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
It was unreliably sourced and full of jargon, as brought up by a Featured Article Review. -- ferret (talk) 13:18, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Read the FA demotion linked above in the article milestones. -- ferret (talk) 04:47, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
Even if it were fully sourced, I'm not sure if having tons of technical jargon would benefit the casual reader. An overview of the system and its main components, sure, but the exact amount of gigahertz for the sound processor is a better fit for a dedicated SNES Wikia. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 11:49, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
Do you even read what you type? Technical Specifications ARE for technical "jargon". It is a place specifically meant to be technical and NOT for the casual reader. What are you even talking about? Do you just want to be right or something? You should be removed from editing anything, as you are clearly in a mindset that is part of the worlds problem right now. We don't need political thinking or you pushing an agenda on a technical specifications area. It is meant to be an in depth technical breakdown of the machine. Please leave.TheCyndicate (talk) 21:23, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
@TheCyndicate: What? This does not need to be taken to a personal level. What Dissident93 is trying to convey is as per guidelines in WP:VG/GL, we should not use jargon and all text should be understandable for all capable readers - this is an encyclopaedia. The fact that you, a user that doesn't even have their account fully set up yet; a new user, would personally attack one of the most senior editors in the WikiProject Video games space, completely unprovoked, and without proper reference, shows that you really should take a good read of WP:GF. If you're unable to participate in a discussion civilly, please just don't. No hard feelings. ~ Manfred (talk page) 21:53, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, me following Wikipedia guidelines is what's wrong with the world right now. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 23:01, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
