Portals mess up whitespace[edit]

The few task forces with linked portals make the spacing all wonky for those items. I tried messing with the CSS but I can't exactly find why the TFs with portals can't sit nicely inline with the others. Any ideas? czar  22:52, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Edit request: some assessment categories[edit]

Per Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Video_games#Assessment_tables, can we try adding |TF_9_ASSESSMENT_CAT = indie game articles and |TF_6_ASSESSMENT_CAT = Sega articles to give the automatic assessment tables a go? czar  22:58, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Done. --PresN 23:45, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Replacing to do with announcements[edit]

Per consensus here, requesting a push of the updates from the sandbox. (diff) czar  01:21, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  12:30, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Task force cleanup[edit]

Part 1: Please push the sandbox's changes (diff) as the first part of the task force cleanup. I need Blizzard and Rockstar parameters (order in the template doesn't matter right now) for me to merge those projects related. In the future and pending further consensus, I'll move to add and remove the other params. czar  04:05, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  12:28, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Reassessment param[edit]

Please push the "reassess" param update (and minor typo fixes) from the sandbox version (comparison). Relevant thread and growing consensus at Wikipedia_talk:VG#Assessment_requests. Can always BRD if necessary. czar  17:13, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done but I left a note at WT:VG#Assessment requests --Redrose64 (talk) 17:28, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 16 June 2014[edit]

Can we put this image for the VN taskforce? Visual novel stub icon.gif-- Brainy J ~~ (talk) 19:10, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

@Brainy J: When displayed in the wikiproject banner, it will be scaled to 25 pixels: Visual novel stub icon.gif. I think the image isn't effective at that size; it' very hard to make out what is displayed on the screen. -- John of Reading (talk) 20:32, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
It's better than nothing, though I also think you can do better. I also recommend getting consensus on the taskforce talk page czar  22:23, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. I agree with John here, so there is no consensus for this. Please establish one. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 22:32, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Indie task force icon[edit]

Fez (video game) "BIG GOMEZ".png Please push |TF_9_IMAGE = Fez (video game) "BIG GOMEZ".png as the indie task force icon as tested in the sandbox and per consensus at WT:VG#Indie_task_force_icon. czar  03:08, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

  • After having read the discussion, I find myself unable to ignore Lucia's (however poorly presented) arguments, so I will not personally complete this edit request because I object to using a specific game to represent an entire genre. I won't decline it in case someone else wants to take the responsibility for pushing it through. ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  03:18, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I read the whole discussion (what a waste of time) and find that there is consensus. Lucia may have had a point but I'm not going to let one editor block a broad consensus. Ultimately it's a trivial matter, but some members of this WikiProject obviously feel it's important and if this motivates them then we should make the change. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:28, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Notice of deprecating defunct & inactive task forces[edit]

WT:VG#Task force cleanup pt. 4 – czar 18:53, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

WT:VG#Task force cleanup pt. 5 – czar 04:58, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Deprecating the "needs attention" param[edit]

WT:VG#Cleanup_category_of_the_week – czar 02:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Deprecating peer review and GCOTW[edit]

  • peer – set |peer=yes if the article is currently undergoing a peer review, or to request that the peer review process for this page should be begun.
  • old-peer – set |old-peer=yes if the article has had a peer review which is now archived.
    • This parameter populates Category:Old requests for CVG peer review.
    • old-peer – if the peer review page exists but is not at Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Peer review/{{SUBJECTPAGENAME}}, set this parameter; i.e. if the peer review page is Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Peer review/Foobar, set |old-peer=Foobar
  • GCOTW – set |GCOTW=yes if the page is currently the project collaboration.
  • old-GCOTW – set |old-GCOTW=yes (or any non-blank value other than "no", "n", "0" or "¬", such as the dates it was part of the collaboration) if the page was a past project collaboration.

We don't do in-project peer reviews anymore (via this template), but by the sitewide peer review process. We also don't have project collaborations (article of the week) anymore because they weren't popular ideas. I propose that we deprecate the |peer= and |GCOTW= params. If there is consensus for this, we can then discuss whether we deprecate the old peer review and old GCOTW params (likely by first moving the old peer review pages to match the current peer review page title formats and compiling all old GCOTW entries into a list). – czar 15:57, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
