Re:Surprise FA fail[edit]

We'll call it a swap- if Karanacs feels the articles need more reviews, I'll give yours an in-depth look- video games is certainly something on which I don't mind commenting. J Milburn (talk) 11:44, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

RE:killer7 copyedit[edit]

Wow. I'm really sorry I've been out man. I will add it to my list of things to do, but I'm honestly not certain when I can get to it. I'll shoot for sometime this week. Thanks for helping out with Lara Croft. (Guyinblack25 talk 17:48, 20 September 2010 (UTC))

I gave it a crack. The article looks to be in good shape, but I'm sure someone at FAC will find something I probably missed. Just remember to add the alt text for the images. Another set of eyes copy editing should improve its chances at FAC. I recommend heading to GAN first though, because the reviewer may provide some good feedback useful for FAC. (Guyinblack25 talk 17:03, 27 September 2010 (UTC))
Congrats on the successful FA. Sorry I was out when it was up. Keep up the good work man. (Guyinblack25 talk 14:35, 29 October 2010 (UTC))

Italics in titles[edit]

I just wanted to apologize for my edit summary: until last week, I would not have been correct to state "since when do you need consensus to italicize a title", since policy was fairly explicitly against it. Per the RFC on WP:ITALICTITLE, though, consensus has changed. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 20:36, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Re Killer7 current FAC[edit]

There is nothing wrong in asking editors who have participated in earlier reviews to "take a look" at a FAC nom. I do it, and often the editors in question ask to be told when the nom goes up. The words Ling points up as inappropriate are "or perhaps lend support"; this could be interpreted as a canvass. I'm sure that was not your intention, so don't worry about it. My comments at the previous FAC were confined to sources issues; in those circumstances I do not normally register supports or opposes, I simply list issues (if any) that require attention. Unless another reviewer does it before me, I will be happy to check out the sources again. Brianboulton (talk) 14:01, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Re:Killer7[edit]

I've not renominated yet- I currently have another article at FAC (which is also attracting little attention- no one cares about pop culture there!) but I do intend to renominate soon. I sadly have little Internet access at the moment, but I will do my best to get around to offering a review of Killer7. Thanks for dropping me a note. J Milburn (talk) 16:12, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

FF7 Fantasy casting[edit]

Hello, first, let me thank you for helping deal with the whole situation of using the fantasy casting article in the character articles. It's been a week since this whole thing has started, and no one has defended it but Tintor, plus the various policies it's not in line with, I'd say that is plenty to have reached a consensus, right? Anyway, I've gone ahead and removed it from all the character articles but Cloud's since I cannot access it. Would you be able to remove it for me? Thanks again. 68.55.153.254 (talk) 22:20, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Cloud Strife[edit]

Please avoid assuming wp:bad faith. The only thing the anon is saying is "consensus reached" which goes against the guideline Wp:consensus. The same goes with "consensus is against you", as it does not explain why. As it was already stated, the current source doesn't break crystalball (even the article's name says it's not happening), it's not trivia (the sources' informations are relative to all the previous ones) and its not undue because of the previous ones. If it is just because editors don't like, it goes against a neutral point of view. As I asked the editors, what is the reason for removal? I agreed with the first ones, so that's why I revised them. Moreover Removing things saying its "consensus" is not a valid reason, and could be deemed as blanking. Number of editors does not matter also when using consensus.Tintor2 (talk) 00:38, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

You accused the anon of "disruptive editing". How is that not bad faith on your part? At this point, you're just citing as many guidelines and policies as you can in order to fight against an established consensus, regardless of relevance. Why don't you take it to a larger community to discuss it, if you care so much about your little source? It's tiring arguing with you since all you do is reject the opposition's premises without grounds. Axem Titanium (talk) 00:56, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
I accused him of that cos of lack of responses and just editing which is already discruptive editing. And what are the "opposition's premises"? That's what I wanna know. Until now, I accepted all the points given and worked in that, but the anon and you keep removing it saying it's "consensus" which is not a reason. I'm also tired of that (even the anon reported me), but I still don't find it convincing why remove reception from an article saying "consensus" and no reason given.Tintor2 (talk) 01:06, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
See? It's exactly this attitude of assuming there's "no reason given" which frustrates me. Obviously, it's not "no reason" or else there would be no discussion. My talk page is not the proper venue for this debate. Axem Titanium (talk) 02:08, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry for bothering. I just wanted to know the reason for the source being called trivia or undue, but I also got tired of that.Tintor2 (talk) 12:27, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Changing template's POV[edit]

You can't change a template without discussing. a timeline is too in-universe. a chronology of the games and anime is best suited without making it too in-universe.Bread Ninja (talk) 20:58, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I can. Anyway, the fact that the series takes place in an alternate version of Earth is extremely central to the plot since it discusses science fiction and speculative fiction concepts. Please re-read WP:IN-U and think about what it's actually trying to guard against. The timeline clearly labels the chronology as "fictional" and at no point treats it as "real", nor does it omit real-world info. Axem Titanium (talk) 22:13, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
but when theres a bold, revert rule, then you can't change it back until properly discussed. WP:BOLD also suggest to be careful, and not be reckless. I know we can be bold whenever, but we also have to worry if it's worth it or not or if it's an actual "fix" instead of a "change". the timeline is explained in various times, but never really focuses on it too much. science fiction or not, that shouldn't be a reason why it merits a story. and there are dozens and dozens of ainime and video game series that take place in an alternate universe, that doesn't merit a timeline for it either. theres a setting section for each article to focus on it's own timeline. sure it explains various things happened, but doesn't completely focus on it. Especially if it hasn't been covered completely. if you find any second party or third party sources talking about the timeline than probbly a change is probably better, but at the moment it's too in-universe, and only a select few will understand itPLus the last part of WP:IN-U is more reassuring about it.Bread Ninja (talk) 22:31, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Sure, I accept that. And you'll note that I didn't revert it to my version at all during this discussion. I don't believe I ever called it a "fix", which implies that the previous version was "broken". If you think the in-universe concern outweighs the benefit of clearly illustrating how the various elements of the series relate chronologically, then fine. Axem Titanium (talk) 22:51, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

.hack FAC[edit]

I got your note about the FAC, but I think I'll sit this one out. I know a fair bit about prose issues, but I'm no expert on the contents of most game articles. I wish you the best with it. Finetooth (talk) 18:26, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

you should post FAC on the .hack (video game series) talk page, it's hard to find.Bread Ninja (talk) 18:02, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean. The FAC template is right at the top of the talk page. Axem Titanium (talk) 18:29, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
sorry, i already found it. i just left my input already.Bread Ninja (talk) 18:33, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

chronology[edit]

the chronology shows exactly, when it was released. Yes it may go according to the fictional one, but it's still technically, the real-world view of the chronology still stands, unless you prove that it's not.Bread Ninja (talk) 07:43, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

I think you misunderstand the purpose of the chronology then. Just by looking at the release dates, for example at List of .hack media, you know that this is the order that the games were released in. If this were the only purpose of the template, I would nominate it for deletion since it's redundant. However, as it stands, the template is placed in the "Plot" section of each article, meaning that it must add something to the understanding of the plot. What it adds is that the viewer now knows what the overall fictional history of the series is, which you don't understand unless you mark it as "fictional". Axem Titanium (talk) 07:52, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
I've been against the .hack media from the beginning because that's what trully is redundant. it's just everything we have now but in list format, along with some additional information that isn't sourced. You say things such as my project pages relating to .hack are redundant, or this template. But it's the very article you made that isn't necessary at this time. For a multi-franchise series such as this that has chronicles within the franchsie, the media information is already best suited for the main franchise article.Bread Ninja (talk) 07:59, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Also it has original research and such as parts where it's states "for project .hack" instead of stating "for all media created within Project .hack".Bread Ninja (talk) 08:03, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

A list of media is very standard practice across Wikipedia, especially for a large franchise with many different types of media like manga, anime, and games. It provides a central location where one can consult release dates and find a brief description of each item. Obviously it's a work in progress at this point, but there is no deadline. Look at the relationship between Kingdom Hearts and List of Kingdom Hearts media for what this should ideally look like. The series article provides a detailed text description of major elements of the series and has an outline of the overall plot. The list presents the same material but in a table format for easy viewing. Axem Titanium (talk) 08:10, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Standard practice, doesn't mean it's a necessity for all franchise articles. There is a large difference between .hack franchise and Kingdom hearts franchise. For one, Kingdom Hearts' plot is completely centralized within the video games and no sequel, or prequel has expanded towards another media, all of it's alternate media has been mere adaptations or merchandise. .hack isn't completely centralized in one piece of media plot-wise. for kingdom hearts a list would be good considering the main franchise article focuses on the video game series. But for .hack franchise, it's focus is in almost all media it has released. Unless you we were able to fix the article to keep it centralized in one or two specific types of media, and force all other media to be in the List of .hack media. Then the article would serve more useful, but at the moment, as it stands it does not and i'm not talking about deadline. i mean if we left things the way they were in other articles such as the franchise and found references for the list of media, then this article would still be redundant. So which is it? is the template too redundant, or is media article too redundant?
There is no real need to put "fictional" chronology onto it, because it lines up with the releases. It wouldn't be redundant, it just leaves room for it to serve two purposes.Bread Ninja (talk) 08:28, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
You know, you're a lot of talk, but when it comes down to it, you don't do a lot of meat and beans article improvement. I could drop everything and start improving List of .hack media right now, but it's not exactly on the top of my priority list. In my head, I have a vision of what I would like the .hack articles to look like, but who knows how long it will take to get to that point. However, I know that it eventually will get done because I actually get down to business sometimes to do some honest to goodness writing. So yes, you can argue to your wit's end about the individual differences between .hack and Kingdom Hearts and how this or that format is best for presenting the information, but until you actually do something, it's all fluff. Axem Titanium (talk) 08:48, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

meat and beans? i think, you're trying to provoke me. Plus this is highly uncivil. So lets just stick to the main topic. I just don't want you to be one of those other users who think they have an entire set of articles to themselves and believes their rule is absolute. Though I'm not the best at sourcing, i do know a thing or two about formatting and organizing, when articles are notable, and various other things. And it's not that i dont know how to look for references, it's just putting them in is very time-consuming and have to figure it out with each one i add in, and i dont have that kind of time.

But for now, if you want the .hack media article to stay, then i suggest you work on the main franchise article to further it's importance. And also...add refs, i don't even think it's that hard to do considering, the list of .hack media is practically redundant.Bread Ninja (talk) 09:00, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

I just call 'em like I see 'em, no incivility intended. On the other hand, I do take offense when you place the onus on me to provide references when you have done nothing of the sort. Ah, well. Winter break is coming up. I guess I'll have time to rewrite them then. A writer's work is never done... Axem Titanium (talk) 09:20, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Then think before you type if you don't intend incivility. And i have attempted to add references. that's all you need to know.Bread Ninja (talk) 09:31, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
If it makes you a better editor, I don't regret my words. Axem Titanium (talk) 16:14, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Don't think you're helping at all...you're only causing more problems. what you say doesn't even make sense. i don't think you're even trying anymore, you're just saying whatever and you're practically admitting you're being uncivil.Bread Ninja (talk) 19:19, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
On the contrary, I believe I've been the most help, at least with respect to the articles in question. Compare the article to what it was before and tell me it wasn't an improvement. Axem Titanium (talk) 07:39, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
I was referring to this discussion. And i don't even remember the article appearing like that. In fact, it was originally separated into 4 articles. That must've been when you decided to merge them down, but even then i remembered more content than that.Bread Ninja (talk) 07:44, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Main page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of this article know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on March 16, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 16, 2011. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured article director, Raul654 (talk · contribs). If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :D Thanks!

Edea image[edit]

It is true that it is covered; but is it not also true that Irvine's appearance is discussed? I argue that simply being discussed in reliable or primary sources is not enough to warrant a fair use image's inclusion, especially one that covers such a small portion of the article's subject. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 06:01, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

I think Edea's image is unique among the set of all possible images that could be included in this article because her design is so radically different than the other characters' (owing to her origin as an emulation of Amano's style). I think an illustration of this is valuable because it is difficult to convey this difference in style in words alone. Axem Titanium (talk) 17:39, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
It would be difficult yes, but again, this can be argued for any number of potential images; I'm sure if we looked into the characters article, we can find content discussing potential images that are at least as good if not better in terms of fair use rationale. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 21:52, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
Sure, it's possible. If you'd like to discuss those on the talk page, go ahead. Axem Titanium (talk) 23:41, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Re: Nintendo GameCube edit: Is Webcite down?[edit]

Regarding this edit, it seems like Webcite's backend database might be down or something. I can't find any webcitation.org link that does work, even those created well outside the "April 23rd, 2010 and May 10th, 2010" window mentioned in their error message. Anomie 14:44, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Ah, I see. Well, we'll see if it comes back up again, then. At any rate, I found a more recent citation so maybe you want to request an archive for that one too? Axem Titanium (talk) 01:23, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
I actually found your edit because my script that lets me know which articles need updating when Nintendo releases a new quarterly report flagged Nintendo GameCube as having a new link to the latest report; in articles for older consoles, I've been leaving them with a WebCited older version because nothing will be changing. As a test I tried archiving the newest version, but it eventually claimed "The caching attempt failed for the following reason: Could not establish the root of the downloaded page. This is most likely caused by a page class which isn't supported yet by WebCite." Anomie 03:36, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
So WebCite doesn't work on pdfs? Is that what it is? Axem Titanium (talk) 11:40, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

List of game engine articles[edit]

Hi, I saw that you redirected List of game engine articles to List of game engines because of the merge proposal. But what about the actual merge? Are you going to do it, or are you just going to leave it as it is now? —Kri (talk) 20:18, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

What exactly are you suggesting be merged? I never really figured out what was supposed to be unique about that list. Axem Titanium (talk) 21:04, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
The unique thing with the list was explained in the article. The result of your edit was that the article was simply deleted (or turned into a redirect page which is the same thing in this case), since you removed all content and did not show any attempt to restore it in any other form. If you simply want to delete the article it is better to nominate it for deletion, or if you prefer it to be merged but don't want to do the merge yourself, I suggest that you wait with deleting the content until it's fully converted to the other article.
About the merge proposal: It was not me who made it; I created the article and was never really for the merge. —Kri (talk) 22:42, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
As a redirect, the content is still there in the article history. If you think there is useful content to rescue, go ahead, I'm not stopping you. The consensus of the discussion was that there was no need to have two articles on the same topic. I read the article and I couldn't figure out what it was trying to get at. Maybe something about what new/notable features each engine had? I'm not really sure. At any rate, maybe the scope of the main list should be expanded to whatever it was that you were proposing, or maybe not. That's a separate discussion. Axem Titanium (talk) 01:43, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
The article was mainly about other articles that is about game engines (as the article title says), but that's not really important. I still say that either you delete the article (which it seems like you have done now), or you transfer what has to be transferred in the merge. If you don't know what has to be transferred and don't want to delete the article, don't do anything. That is why I haven't done anything. —Kri (talk) 05:10, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
I assume that what you really wanted to do was to delete the article, and that you therefore didn't care to preserve the content in any other form. Since no one other than me seems to understand what the article was for, maybe we should leave it deleted. But next time, make a request for a deletion instead of just doing it yourself. —Kri (talk) 12:44, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm still confused. 1) There was a discussion about merging which you seemed to consent to. Merging what, I still don't know, but I'm guessing it was something. 2) All of the content you are calling "deleted" still exists here. So, no, I won't make a deletion request next time if my intention is to merge and redirect. Axem Titanium (talk) 14:51, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
What made you think I consented to the merge? As I've already mentioned, I was never really for the merge, even though I didn't really mind it either. You did however not do any merge, since you didn't add any of the removed content to the other article. But you also didn't delete the article, so what did you do? For me it feels like you're trying to fall somewhere in between the two. Yes the information still exists there, but that could also be used as an argument for vandals to justify blanking of pages. —Kri (talk) 16:29, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
"Maybe you're right. What I originally wanted to do was to create a list of game engine articles because I knew the reading would be interesting. And when I had them all (well, not yet) in one list I thought I could as well make some small notes about the technologies they used. By maybe I should just create a category Game engines instead. —Kri (talk) 13:40, 14 August 2011 (UTC)"
I get the feeling that you're still not completely familiar with how Wikipedia works. When I redirected the list, the information still exists and you are completely welcome to rescue that to merge into the main list. I'm not familiar enough with the subject matter to know what is worth merging (though I have some ideas about what isn't worth merging) so I leave that to you. I just did the easy part, which was to redirect the list whose creation was unsupported by consensus. Axem Titanium (talk) 18:50, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
The merge was only on discussion. I never intended to do any merge myself; in fact, I don't know how it was supposed to have been carried out. Therefore, I will not complete the merge, and I guess you won't complete it either. So should we maybe restore the old article the way it was? —Kri (talk) 14:36, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm afraid "I don't feel like it" is not a valid reason for going against consensus. If you're not the one to complete the merge, no one will. Axem Titanium (talk) 20:58, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
If I'm the only one who can complete the merge, I suggest that we cancel it and restore the old version of the article since I have no idea how it's intended that the merge is carried out. I didn't suggest the merge, someone else did. —Kri (talk) 18:09, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
That's not exactly how consensus-building on Wikipedia works. One editor can't just decide he or she doesn't like the outcome and reject it. If you would like to contest the outcome of the discussion, take it to a wider audience at WT:VG. Otherwise, if you're not in the mood to merge anything, then it's probably best to drop it. Axem Titanium (talk) 06:08, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
What do you mean that the consensus is? Do you think the consensus is to do or to continue the merge, even when no one can finish it?
I don't know why you say that I'm not in the mood, or that "I don't feel like it"; I simply can't finish the merge because I don't know how it's supposed to be done. Now we have started something that is never going to be finished, which makes me wonder: In what state is the article right now? Is it undergoing a merge, which in that case will never be completed? Or is the article deleted? Since no one has requested for a deletion, I guess it's the former. And in that case I would much rather just see the article get deleted, because I don't think it's good to start something that no one is ever going to finish and then just leave it as it is. —Kri (talk) 14:16, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
See WP:MERGE for what a merge is. If you would rather it be deleted, then you don't have to do anything at this point. The article is currently a WP:REDIRECT which is fine for what you seem to be getting at. There's nothing finished or unfinished about it right now. If nothing happens, then it was redirected. If you or someone performs a merge, then it will have been merged and redirected. Either way, the action is already finished. Axem Titanium (talk) 17:14, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that's nice! —Kri (talk) 14:23, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Capcom Five[edit]

The article Capcom Five you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within seven days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Capcom Five for things which need to be addressed. GRAPPLE X 02:25, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi there!

I see that in 2010, shortly after I spent a while cleaning up the article "Cyberbrain", which was a horrendous overlong mess, you merged it into World of Ghost in the Shell. Great result! Thanks for that.

Persona 4: Arena[edit]

The majority of reliable sources use the name "Persona 4: Arena" including the colon. Therefore, per WP:COMMONNAME, the colon version should be used and you have just done a massive dick move by editing the redirect, thereby preventing any moves from being made, again.—Ryulong (竜龙) 09:01, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Looking at Google News hits, there seems to be a rather even split between using the colon and not, perhaps leaning towards not. Here are plenty of reliable examples. Also, the most reliable source in this case is Atlus' website, which confirms the lack of colon. Axem Titanium (talk) 17:12, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

New game plus[edit]

Please see the guideline I mentioned before hitting the revert button. WP:MOSCAPS makes it clear: "Wikipedia avoids unnecessary capitalization.

Main page appearance: Killer7[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Killer7 know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on July 7, 2012. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 7, 2012. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegate Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

The Killer7 logo

Killer7 is an action-adventure video game developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by Capcom. Suda51 wrote and directed the game, his first to be released outside Japan on July 7, 2005. Killer7 features first-person shooter elements and a unique "on rails" control scheme, but the core adventure-style gameplay has been compared to Myst and Snatcher. The game follows an elite group of assassins called the "killer7". The assassins, physical manifestations of one man Harman Smith, perform hits on behalf of the United States government. Through these missions, the killer7 uncover a deeper conspiracy regarding the role of Japan in US politics and secrets about the nature of their organization. The game received polarized reviews due to its unconventional control scheme and complex noir plot. Jack Thompson, an outspoken video game activist, alleged that the game contains "full-blown sex sequences", but his claims were ultimately refuted. Despite these setbacks, Killer7‍ '​s cult appeal led to remakes of Suda51's older works and the successful launch of No More Heroes. (more...)

And next time, ask anyone before moving articles. --Niemti (talk) 13:32, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

On the spine and at the bottom of the page. Cheers, Axem Titanium (talk) 13:35, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

It's a Japanese website. Also, other major websites write it this way: IMDb, ANN, GameSpot, IGN, Variety, even Wikia or Facebook. The only ones who don't, use "-" instead, like RT or Amazon. But absolutely nobody writes as just one string of words. See Wikipedia:Article titles#Common names. And ask before moving articles. --Niemti (talk) 13:47, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

I don't believe I have to ask anyone before doing something. But, since you objected, I'll discuss it. The article had stood without the colon for 6 years (since 2006) and was only moved in the past month (without discussion or "asking", mind you). It passed GA in 2011 without the colon. To rebut your arguments: 1) it's a Japanese website for a Japanese product. Shouldn't that matter? 2) It's ON THE SPINE OF THE PRODUCT ITSELF. That probably trumps anything the website might say. COMMONNAME generally applies when the "official" name is much more complicated and difficult to search for than the name used in common parlance. In this case, it's actually more simple so there's no need to make it more complicated. Axem Titanium (talk) 14:13, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes it should it matter, because it's English Wikipedia, not the Japanese one. And this is not only by far the most common (Wikipedia:Article titles#Common names including all the reliable third-party sources) but also currently the official one, as seen at http://na.square-enix.com/ff7acc/ - and "It's ON THE SPINE OF THE PRODUCT ITSELF" is just original reseach, unsupported by no reliable sources as for being an official name. The original rename was 100% right, that's why it was uncontested, and it turned out this article was not so much of a GA, after all. --Niemti (talk) 14:36, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Are you serious? Looking at the spine of the product is "original research"? This is ridiculous. Look at your life; look at your choices. Axem Titanium (talk) 14:46, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes. Because this is just your personal interpretation, going contrary to what almost everyone else have decided for (that's including IMDb and ANN, and various gaming websites such as IGN or GameSpot, and non-gaming such as Variety) AND what is the most common name according to random people (including at Wikia and Facebook) AND what the newest official website says is the official English title. It's your own original research VS the world, so go and revert (instead of trying to talk with me about the meaning of life or something). You can't go on like that with some "I'm right, EVERYONE else is wrong, look at your life; look at your choices." The other notable alternative naming is "Final Fantasy VII Fantasy - Advent Children" (like on RT) but that is far less common and was never official too. --Niemti (talk) 15:33, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Looking at the physical product counts as "sourcing the work itself", not original research. I'm not personally interpreting anything; the words are right there, no interpretation necessary! I'm not saying I'm right, everyone else is wrong; I'm saying that the product in question (the film, FFVIIAC) CALLS ITSELF "Final Fantasy VII Advent Children". I'm still confused why I'm the one being yelled at for changing something without discussion when it was changed from the 6 year old precedent just last month and I was just changing it back. Axem Titanium (talk) 16:17, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

I certainly think so. All of the articles reached their respected status fairly recently with it being a year or two ago. Sure it may confuse people on the fact that the topic will have four of the five listed but mentioning the lack of Dead Phoenix may make everything easier. GamerPro64 17:50, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for keeping the infobox credits to the minimum for FFV13. The video you cited for FFV13 appears to redirect to a video for Prey (video game). Generally, lists of video game credits are discouraged in favor of cited in-depth discussion of roles and contributions to the project. It's much more useful to the reader to hear about how Takayuki Takeya designed the "mechanic concept" than simply listing his name. It's ok (for now) to list known developers of FFV13 but when it's released, the criteria for inclusion will become much more stringent and require direct quotations from developers for their specific involvement in order to warrant a mention on the page. Thank you for your tireless contributions to WP:SE and I hope you focus your efforts toward positive areas in the future. Axem Titanium (talk) 05:43, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Hi. I have since changed the reference URL on the Final Fantasy Versus XIII page to another video. It appears that when GameTrailers changed their site, some of their old videos got deleted. As for the staff list, I will only list them like that for the Versus XIII page as the game is unreleased. For other games, I will list their actual roles and what they contributed to the game in prose similar to how it has been done on the Final Fantasy VI page. I hope we can continue to work together improving the Square Enix game pages. --G-Zay (talk) 23:35, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
I hope so as well. I suppose it does make sense to list some dev staff for unreleased games as long as it's converted to prose after it's released. Regards, Axem Titanium (talk) 14:34, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I personally think the info bx now looks more concise. :) --G-Zay (talk) 19:44, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Double Dash!! and New Play Control![edit]

Hello Axem Titanium,

Based on your New Play Control! edit, it seems you find the following line of mine to be "iffy":

Many elements from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! reappear in Mario Kart Wii. Four tracks (Peach Beach, Waluigi Stadium, Mario Circuit and DK Mountain) and the Cookie Land battle course are available on the Wii game. All Double Dash!! characters, with the exception of Paratroopa and Petey Piranha, reappear in the Wii game.

Let me explain why i put that in there. See, to me, the Wii is an enhanced version of the GameCube. Purchasing it allowed me to have the power of both consoles (plus many more via the Virtual Console) in one machine. But this is not just a matter of opinion. It also has to do with the similar hardware between the two, plus the support of nearly all GameCube and two Triforce games (three with CosmoCortney's AX discovery in GX). As the New Play Control! concept shows, porting from the GameCube to the Wii is a breeze. The Wikipedia page lists a dozen such ports, with hopefully more in existence or in the works.

Likewise, it's safe to say that the Mario Kart: Double Dash!! engine is re-utilized in the Wii and Arcade GP games. Why would they rewrite the engine from scratch when they can simply reuse and improve upon the one found in the Double Dash!! game? To further add to this theory, the GameCube controller can be used in the Wii game. There are also four retro tracks and one retro course, plus the character rosters between the two console games share a lot of similarities: seven characters premiered in Wii, while that game's other 18 characters consist of all but two Double Dash!! characters. (Contrary to your claim, retro tracks only appear from DS onward, although Super Circuit does have Super&amps; tracks.)

i'd like to know what you think about all of this, and whether or not this is enough evidence to support a mention of Double Dash!! in Wii.

Thanks, --True Tech Talk Time (talk) 22:01, 8 March 2013 (UTC) (please reply on my page!)

Hmmm, I can see where you're coming from, but I can't just take it on faith that the "Double Dash engine" was reused for MKWii. For starters, the central mechanic of Double Dash---swapping racers on the fly---is missing from MKWii. And even if the engine was reused, what of it? Developers reuse engines all the time to make sequels. Majora's Mask used the same engine as Ocarina of Time, but that doesn't mean MM is a remake of OoT. In fact, Twilight Princess uses a modified Wind Waker engine. Long story short, there's no evidence that the game called "Mario Kart Wii" is a remake/port of the game called "Mario Kart Double Dash". None of the other games listed on the New Play Control page had their names changed as a result of the port/remake. Axem Titanium (talk) 22:21, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

.hack (video game series)[edit]

Hi Axem Titanium, I'm beginning the copy-edit you requested to the above article at the GOCE Request page. Please feel free to contact me, or to correct or revert my edits if I'm doing something I shouldn't. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 13:12, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks a lot! Axem Titanium (talk) 22:04, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
No worries; I've significantly expanded the 'Reception' section as it covers all four games. You might like to divide these into subsecs if further expansion occurs, but I think they're of a suitable length at the moment. Also I added a {{citation needed}} tag in Plot --> Characters at the end of the paragraph, which appears to be unreferenced. You may also wish to expand the leader, which given the size of the article is a little short IMO. Anyway I'm done; feel free to contact me about any issues arising from the copy-edit. Good luck with your planned FA nom, and I recommend you seek a Peer Review before nominating it. It's an interesting article and I enjoyed working on it. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 04:32, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks again for all your help. I didn't want to sprinkle edit conflicts in while you were copy-editing so I've resisted the urge to look at what you've changed yet. I'll take a look tomorrow and look into the remaining issues you brought up here. Regards, Axem Titanium (talk) 04:49, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
No worries; thanks for avoiding edit conflicts, its appreciated. I hope my changes are OK for you - somehow critical reception sections always seem to require more attention than other sections, even when they seem fine at face value. ;-) Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 20:12, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes, your work on the reception section is extremely appreciated. I made some slight changes but the vast majority have been kept. You seem to like mdashes even more than I do! :) Anyway, one question: is it ok for the last sentence of the article to be in its own paragraph (the one about fragment's Famitsu score). Axem Titanium (talk) 20:19, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I wasn't quite sure what to do with the Famitsu score sentence; it's probably best to merge it unless you can add more critical reviews of the game. I'm glad someone else likes dashes; they're good where too many commas can confuse things. :-) Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 01:27, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, unfortunately, it's a game that was only released in Japan and Famitsu magazine's reviews are the only ones that get reported in the West with any regularity. And dashes are great. We should all use more dashes. Axem Titanium (talk) 13:28, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Farewell[edit]

I am sending this message to the users who I have closely collaborated with. I will be taking a temporary Wikibreak for at least 5-7 days to let off some steam and get myself reenergized. Some of the stress has got to me, so I think it's best if I should take a couple of days off. I also have final exams coming up as well, so I have more important things to worry about. I, however, will be here to contribute to some articles that I have worked on. Until then, farewell. With my very best and warmest regards, Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 20:41, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Take care and chill out. Wikipedia is a hobby, not a job, and you definitely don't want to get burned out on a hobby (which is something that you presumably enjoy). I spent a few years figuring out where and how much I wanted Wikipedia to be in my schedule as well. Axem Titanium (talk) 21:10, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Hey Axem Titanium

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Megami Tensei sub-series[edit]

Hi, regarding the template I didn't really mean to imply that they were part of a subseries, just that they share "devil" in their title. The 'other' section is kinda big so it is notable for etymological reasons that the titles have that commonality.

I mean heck, even the 2 "Devil Children" animes star entirely different casts so in spite of the shared title they're not part of the same reality either. So I figure why not just point out common names? Persona 3 and Persona 4 share little more in common outside the name than they do with the rest of the Megami Tensei series I think. Ranze (talk) 18:41, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Ah I see. Still, it's a bit weird to separate them out like that, especially if there's Devil Summoner right above it. I believe the Other section presents the games in order by release date, which is a plus and every separation dilutes that functionality. I'm not a huge fan but if you feel strongly, take it to the talk page and hash it out with all the other editors. Axem Titanium (talk) 22:19, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Disney Channel Original Studios[edit]

Hi Axem, I noticed that you filed the AfD for Disney Channel Original Studios. Recently noticed this article, Disney Channel Original Productions, which was created by new user Special:Contributions/Super Martino Bro. Since the new article was created with a copy/paste of another article, I thought he might be resurrecting a deleted page, which led me to your AfD. Do you think they're the same article? Super Martino's user page is telling, as well. It's likely he's a sock of KuhnstylePro. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: Cave Story[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Cave Story know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on February 19, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/February 19, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Daisuke Amaya

Cave Story is a freeware platform-adventure video game released in 2004 for the PC. It was developed over five years by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya (pictured) in his free time. Cave Story features 2D platform mechanics and pays homage to the classic games that the author played in his youth, such as Metroid. The game focuses on an amnesiac protagonist who awakens in a cave. Through his explorations, he discovers a plot by the Doctor, a megalomaniac who intends to force the inhabitants of the cave to fight for him in his bid to conquer the world. The protagonist is thrust into the position of savior as he endeavours to defeat the Doctor. After its initial self-published release, Cave Story slowly gained popularity on the Internet. It received wide critical acclaim for its compelling story and gameplay. Independent developer Nicalis worked with Amaya to port the game to WiiWare and DSiWare in 2010. An enhanced version, Cave Story+, was released for Steam in November 2011, with a Nintendo 3DS release in October 2012. A 3D remake of the game, titled Cave Story 3D, was developed by Nicalis and published by NIS America for the Nintendo 3DS in November 2011. (Full article...)
