Orphaned non-free image File:Wages of Sin Box Front.jpg
Thanks for uploading File:Wages of Sin Box Front.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
If you object the redirect, fine, but if you nominate an article for deletion, and recommend it for a redirect, it gets thrown out. It's okay to oppose it, but your reason is nonsense. Sergecross73 msg me 23:04, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
- Nominate it for deletion if you don't want it, familiarise yourself with the process, delete and redirect is an acceptable nomination. You can't remove a page's content without going through any kind of process, that's ridiculous. - hahnchen 23:50, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
- Youve been around a long time - you know you can redirect articles without discussion if theres have valid reason - (like being unsourced for 8 years.) WP:KEEP used to say that advocating for something other than deletion is a rationale for a speedy keep, though they recently reworded it to allow for redirects too, which is different from what I've experienced years past in situations like this. Anyways, regardless, I can't find any sources for the SiN add on, so I guess I'll see you at AFD. Sergecross73 msg me 00:31, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Reference errors on 25 July
Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that an edit performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. It is as follows:
- On the List of video game crowdfunding projects page, your edit caused a URL error (help). (Fix | Ask for help)
Heroes of the a Lance redirect
So let's talk turkey.
Firstly, the video game is a particularly notable one (usually because it's on some "worst ever" list or another), so it may be that it is the primary topic. But I remain unconvinced, because of the long-term significance; the DragonLance series of books has been in continuous publication (with new novels released periodically) for over 30 years. While the blurb on the organization (for lack of a better term) there is short, that's because the eight individual characters are listed above in the alphabetical character lists. If you look at the page before the merger, they were grouped together.
Which leads me to my second objection: the target of the redirect was done because it was a standalone article that was merged. As such, it should continue to point to the merge target as per the consensus to merge. Doing otherwise is entirely too potentially confusing to editors who follow links intended to point to the former standalone article that predate the merge, of which there is a great many.
Which in turn brings up my last point. When I raised that same objection in my edit summary, you said I should just fix the link. No, as the one who changed where a redirect was pointing, it was your responsibility to make sure the links were fixed to point to the right target. Just like when a page is moved. Don't make bold changes and expect others to clean up your mess. That's just rude. oknazevad (talk) 15:16, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
- The video game is the primary topic. Searching for "Heroes of the Lance" in any search engine brings up the video game, not the characters. The video game article is an actual encyclopedia article, with third party references and provides context for unfamiliar readers. The character article, is full of non-notable minutiae written exclusively for fans of the series. There's so very little on the Heroes in the Lance in the characters article that I find it useless to even hatnote the game for, if they are covered somewhere above, then they should be linked. - hahnchen 17:46, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
You undid Czar's redirect and objected to it, please comment on the AfD with your current opinion on what should be done with the article (the AfD is really low in participation and you seemed to hold an opinion that is probably worth hearing out). Thanks! ☺ · Salvidrim! · ✉ 16:14, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
GamesTM scan request
Hey, hahnchen. I've been working on bringing Maniac Mansion up to featured status lately—the content was all there after the previous push a few years ago; I just had to copyedit it. Unfortunately, one of the key sources used in the article is a Maniac Mansion + Day of the Tentacle feature in GamesTM, which I can't access for spotchecking purposes. Whoever added the source seems to have mangled it: allegedly the feature's in a 2010 issue, but it looks like you've got it in the one from November 2007 (issue 63). If possible, would you mind scanning it for me? A lot has changed since the article was first expanded, and I'm worried that it might have become unfaithful to the original sources. Thanks a ton.

- I do have access to that issue, but it is in storage, so will take two weeks to attain. I have the original GamesTM magazine (2007), and the article must have been republished in a GamesTM Retro Companion in 2010. Please send me an email and I will reply with scans. - hahnchen 10:51, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
