Happy New Year![edit]

Fuochi d'artificio.gif

Dear BOZ,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Thank you for the kind thoughts and for all your consistently excellent work through all these years. Last year was a hard one, both physically, thanks to medical ailments, and on Wikipedia, thanks to a plethora of Wikitrolls. Colleagues like you make staying here worthwhile. Here's to a better year to all!
--Tenebrae (talk) 22:38, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Glad to have you still around. :) BOZ (talk) 09:51, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Dear BOZ,
HAPPY NEW YEAR A belated message, but thank you so much for your well wishes at Christmas. You are a good role model for many Wikipedians and I wish there were more like yourself. Look forward to working with you in 2015. Asgardian (talk) 08:44, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Just saw this. Thanks... still wishing I had more time to actually do stuff around here, but, life happens, and in my spare time I've got some other projects going on. Not to mention one (soon, hopefully two) campaigns on the weekend. :) Hoping that all is well with you IRL and here in wiki-land. –Drilnoth (T/C) 05:56, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm doing great, glad to hear you are too! BOZ (talk) 07:25, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Infobox photo discussion[edit]

Hi again. Happy New Year. Can you offer your opinion on which photo is better for the Infobox here? If you're not able to participate, just disregard this message; you don't have to message me. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 01:05, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for participating in the photo discussion. I really appreciate it. One thing: A new photo has been uploaded and added to the discussion. I hope I'm not bothering you by asking if you would mind indicating whether this changes your viewpoint, or whether it remains unchanged? Thank you very much. Nightscream (talk) 12:47, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John H. Crowe III, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Call of Cthulhu (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Damion Scott Infobox photo discussion[edit]

Hi. Damion Scott has taken issue with the photo in his article. He previously demanded that I replace it with one that I thought inferior to the one already in the Infobox, and has now replaced with a third one of his own. In the interest of WP:CONSENSUS, can you offer your opinion on this? Thanks again. Nightscream (talk) 19:25, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Possible return of banned editor[edit]

I have a non-WP:VG related issue I need an admin's help with. I have been dealing with two IP editors at Charles Whitman. At least one may be a previously banned editor. I believe this based on

  • Similarly antagonistic language with characteristic wording tics at both the article's Talk page and my own
  • Similar focus on aspects of the subject the article discusses (the 1966 University of Texas sniper shootings)), in particular the incident's connection with the subsequent formation of SWAT teams in police forces around the US, and whether the shooter's behavior can be described as living up to to a "sniper's code".
  • A private email from another editor who previously dealt with him who believes that it is the same person, and advised me to request admin assistance

Representative discussions:

(Really, that whole page and, apparently, previous ones too; I first got involved in 2013)

  • User_Talk:Pinkadelica/Archive 7#WP:OUTING and the next section (harrassment of another editor. Note that he identifies himself; he did so to me as well by linking to his IndieGogo project in my Talk page, although it no longer exists.)

Despite being advised to do so by the aforementioned editor I am unsure as to whether to file at WP:SPI, and would appreciate uninvolved eyes to look over the evidence. Ylee (talk) 01:40, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

SPI won't do a checkuser for IP editors, although they often block anyway for WP:DUCK cases and any other obvious abuse. Reviewing the case, it looks like they gave you and Pinkadelica some real trouble a couple of years ago. Bad pennies do tend to keep turning up. In the 2010 AN/I thread, Jimbo Wales himself states that "I recommend that people not waste too much time on this. Revert, block, ignore. This nonsense has been going on for years, and I think it will continue for years. Known problem user." If this is connected to the past case like you believe it is, and it seems you are likely right, you can take your above evidence to SPI and that way there is further documentation of continued abuse. If you're concerned that SPI may not be of help, AN/I should accomplish the same purpose and get more eyes on it, although that may allow the IP user to platform a bit in the meantime (which might not be a bad thing, per WP:ROPE).

Closing an RfC[edit]

Hi, BOZ. I hate to bother you with an admin request, but there is a huge backlog at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Requests for closure.

There's an RfC that seems to have run its course, with just two editors, myself and another, who are still commenting and repeating the same points over and over. The RfC is so unwieldy it's almost funny. Do you suppose it might be possible you or another admin whom you could ask could take a look at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Television#Request for Comment (and it's understandable if you wouldn't want to read every single word) or at least the more digestible Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Television#Section break with question and possibly close it?

Thanks for any help. It's been really time-consuming for multiple editors — for which we have no one to blame but ourselves, but still...! With regards, Tenebrae (talk) 20:43, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Oh wow, man... I would love to help out, but to be fair to all the participants a closer really does need to read everything. I don't see how I would find the time for that any tmie soon. BOZ (talk) 21:03, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Okey-doke. I appreciate you giving it a look and responding. --Tenebrae (talk) 22:41, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Template:D&D topics[edit]

As far as I can see, neither Adventure Y, Adventure Z nor Sword Coast Legends have articles, too. And there is an article about Lords of Waterdeep. -- Qafgbxvghnx (talk) 23:13, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Qafgbxvghnx, generally we want to avoid including redlinks on templates like that. And the Lords of Waterdeep page you linked to is about a board game, not a video game. BOZ (talk) 23:51, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Dungeons & Dragons Computer Labyrinth Game isn't a video game, but a electronic hybrid board game. So it seemed okay to me to link to a board game article, as the video game adaption is mentioned in there and stays true to the original game and its rules. -- Qafgbxvghnx (talk) 23:58, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough - I added Lords of Waterdeep back. If you want to start articles about the other games, it would be reasonable to add them back to the template after you create the articles. BOZ (talk) 01:49, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Michael Bennighof[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Michael Bennighof has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

deadpool[edit]

Trying to understand why you changed it back after I've provided references from the actual comic and marvel.com showing that Rob wrote the issue Deadpool premiered in? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Terrysharcque (talkcontribs) 17:14, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

You provided absolutely no citations in the article in this edit, and have not discussed the issue on the article talk page. If you edit war instead of providing citations, an admin can temporarily protect the page. BOZ (talk) 21:27, 1 May 2015 (UTC)


Gotcha....and done. Please review my addition to the Deadpool talk page. Thanks!

Terrysharcque (talk) 13:18, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello BOZ. I've provided images for the articles you listed on my talk page. Do you have any comment on this edit at Dragon Magazine Archive? FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 22:52, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Hmm, I think that one has potential to stand on its own, but it would be better if we had another source to include with the Pyramid source to better establish its notability. It is fine for now as a section. If you want to merge the infobox into Dragon (magazine) as well, that might be nice. Let me know if you disagree. BOZ (talk) 23:41, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Dark Sun[edit]

Hello BOZ. I've recently taken over the Dark Sun pages. I'm looking for a little help getting it up to snuff. Can you have a look at the Dark Sun page and give me some pointers? I'm aware it needs more secondary sources and I'm working on that. What I need help with is figuring out the level of detail appropriate for this type of page. If you could point me to some examples of similar pages that show level of details I can go from there. Thanks! Sugarcoma (talk) 15:58, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Sugarcoma! First of all, keep in mind that you don't "take over" pages on Wikipedia - all of our articles are collaborative works-in-progress, so we all should try to work together to improve them.  :) Secondary sources are the name of the game; in fact, as many of those as we can have, and the fewer primary sources, the better. The goal should be to eventually replace as much primary-sourced text with secondary-sourced text as possible. But, like I say, it is a work-in-progress. As far as how to improve the Dark Sun page, you could use Eberron, Spelljammer, and Planescape as examples for starters on how much in-universe material we need there; I think ideally, we would want maybe 40-60% of the article (arbitrarily) to be development and reception information, and only as brief of an overview of the in-universe setting information as necessary to give the reader a sense of what goes on. You are definitely moving in that direction by building the World of Dark Sun and other pages. Ultimately, we want the Dark Sun page to look more like the Good Article level articles Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms, although that will take a lot of work. Take it in small steps in the meantime. BOZ (talk) 19:36, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
My apologies. I misspoke. By "take over" I meant I started working after it languished unloved for sometime. Bad choice of words. I've been kicking around here for a while so I know how things go here. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll take a look at those other setting pages and use them as examples. Sugarcoma (talk) 19:58, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:Steve Marsh (game designer)[edit]

Hello, BOZ. It has been over six months since you last edited your WP:AFC draft article submission, entitled "Steve Marsh".

The page will shortly be deleted. If you plan on editing the page to address the issues raised when it was declined and resubmit it, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code. Please note that Articles for Creation is not for indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you want to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by one of two methods (don't do both): 1) follow the instructions at WP:REFUND/G13, or 2) copy this code: {{subst:Refund/G13|Draft:Steve Marsh (game designer)}}, paste it in the edit box at this link, and click "Save page". An administrator will in most cases undelete the submission.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. GamerPro64 02:54, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Novels[edit]

Hello BOZ. If you could give me a list of Dungeons & Dragons novels whose articles require images, I would happily do them. I've done a few already. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 03:29, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! Looks like you got the ones I most recently worked on. I haven't started the list yet, but I will try to get some work done on that today. I appreciate your enthusiasm. :) BOZ (talk) 13:15, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Hruggek for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Hruggek is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hruggek until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Psychonaut (talk) 19:59, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks and alerts[edit]

Thanks for the feedback on my Pathfinder edits. I can't promise I'll be dedicating a lot of time to adding Designers & Dragons refs to other RPG entries, but we'll see! (Dang handy book, isn't it?)

Also, I wanted to alert you that Tiefling and (indirectly) Dragonborn (Dungeons & Dragons) are having their notability questioned. It would be a shame to see two of the core races for the game across the last two editions merged into obscurity or removed. As such, it would be nice to have a veteran editor of D&D articles weigh in on the matter, if you have the time. (And maybe provide some secondary sources you're aware of?) JEB215 (talk) 04:10, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, JEB215. Mostly, I try to ignore the hot air of editors with nothing better to do than tell other people what to do. Finding some decent secondary sources (like Designers & Dragons) is a big key to taking the wind out of their sails. I find that arguing with certain people only seems to give them more ammunition, so it is better to go and do something positive rather than try to reason with them. BOZ (talk) 04:12, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Damaged talk page[edit]

Hi BOZ, the talk page at List of Dungeons & Dragons deities has an error on it; the references to the mergers for Luthic and Berronar Truesilver are both there, indicating that the merges have not been completed. They were done ages ago but User:ChrisGualtieri merged them to different (more appropriate) targets. I don't know how to fix them so I thought I'd call this to your attention.Vulcan's Forge (talk) 22:17, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Hmm. I honestly don't know how you fix that. Could it be that the templates on the talk page show that way because the redirects point elsewhere? BOZ (talk) 11:27, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Draft pages[edit]

Sure thing. Always glad to help. I'll swing by when I've time than to do more on Wiki than juts a few quick hits for vandalism and plot bloat and the like, as I've done for the last few minutes during my coffee break! --Tenebrae (talk) 18:06, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Always glad to help — and especially glad to help an old colleague and great editor with whom I've worked for many years. Keep fighting the good fight, my friend! --Tenebrae (talk) 13:50, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Gamora[edit]

Greetings, I think you accidentally template protected the Gamora article. It should have been a full protection, I think. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 20:59, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Jo-Jo Eumerus, thanks for letting me know. I saw the "allow admins and template editors" and I thought that might be a good idea, but perhaps I was not choosing the best option? Let me know the difference between the two. BOZ (talk) 21:02, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
I think full protection is the standard for protections in article space when one is trying to stop an edit war involving autoconfirmed editors by protection. Template protection is more for template space, although it probably does not make much of a difference. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 21:05, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Gotcha. Just to avoid any confusion, I will switch it to full protection. Thanks! BOZ (talk) 21:11, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Article redirects[edit]

Hello, BOZ. As you probably know, several articles about Forgotten Realms novels have recently been turned into redirects. There is an ongoing discussion about this at the Dungeons & Dragons wiki-project; I would appreciate it if you could comment there. I'm really not sure that I want to continue providing pictures for articles until some agreement is reached about which articles are about notable books. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 09:20, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough. I don't know if I can add much to the discussion, but I will help to locate sources if I can. BOZ (talk) 11:20, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Drafts[edit]

Hi BOZ,

I haven't forgotten about helping you out with the two drafts which you sent me. I've been trying to wrap up a project of my own so hopefully I can get to Beth Sotelo and David Morgan-Mar by this Wednesday or Thursday of this week. Hope all is well. Mtminchi08 (talk) 03:35, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

No worries, I appreciate you thinking about it. :) BOZ (talk) 11:19, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Help closing a RfC[edit]

Hi, BOZ. Hope you're well. I was wondering if you could help with something. A bot keeps removing the code on an RfC that's more than 30 days old, even though no admin has closed the RfC. So I'm concerned that with the coding gone it's been taken off the list of active RfCs and so no one will ever come by to close it. I've found that posting a request for closure on an admin noticeboard is very hit or miss as to whether anyone notices. May I ask that that you might close it, or, since we've longtime colleagues and I don't want anyone thinking this is anything other than a neutral request, perhaps you could ask another admin to close it? It's at Talk:Brian Austin Green#RfC: Names and DOB's of children in a BLP. With thanks, Tenebrae (talk) 22:49, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for asking, Tenebrae. To be on the safe side, I will take your request to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Requests for closure. Not that this means someone else can't close it before someone gets to the request. BOZ (talk) 00:36, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Hi BOZ, I am an editor closer. I noticed your post on the WP:ANRFC page. Legobot removed the header after 30 days have past, its automatic. Thats when RFC's usually have had time for most concerned editors to comment. That doesnt mean the RFC is forgotten. Sometimes people request a close on the ANRFC page like you have, and other times Cunard lists those that other editors have not listed. Just a little fyi. AlbinoFerret 00:45, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. :) BOZ (talk) 13:25, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Superhero role-playing game adventures[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Superhero role-playing game adventures requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Xx236 (talk) 05:52, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Hmm, that was supposed to be a category. I have fixed the problem. BOZ (talk) 10:30, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

native americans in genocide article assistance requested.[edit]

Hi Boz, seems someone or some bot has removed a event from the table at List_of_genocides_by_death_toll of the Native American genocide or just broke it. it is beyond my ability to repair and reverting back to Sept, 11, 2015 would probably ruin lots of other people's work. I find the dates of all the edits involved a bit, suspicious to say the least. Anything you can do to help bring back and bring up to Wiki standards the information from 16:45, September 11, 2015‎ that added it. I think there is a citation on the talk page for the article, as well as every middle school history textbook in the US public school system that could be used for citations if any are required. Thanks shadzar-talk 09:45, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

I don't have a lot of experience working with tables. Do you have a sandbox you could work on it? Maybe just copy the table from the old edit, and start with that? BOZ (talk) 14:24, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
The last time I tried to edit a table before the changes to syntax, I broke the D&D editions table trying to color code something that was left out and either had to not save my change or revert my edit because I just couldn't figure out wiki tables. I fear I would do more damage to the page to try to add it. Anyone else you know of that is proficient with wiki tables? (give me HTML and I will make the table do a Hula while singing you its data, just wiki tables ugggh!) shadzar-talk 07:41, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
Not sure. Torchiest? BOZ (talk) 11:20, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
I saw this a few days ago but didn't see anything obviously wrong. Where's the broken part exactly? —Torchiest talkedits 15:49, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
The table isn't currently broken. If it were to be reverted back to the 16:45 Sept 11 edit, the months of work since would be lost. Why that section on Native Americans was removed is the question as it was done by what looks like a bot. I just don't know how to add all that back to a table like this. here is the part on the "American Holocaost" that was removed. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_genocides_by_death_toll&diff=prev&oldid=680593855 shadzar-talk 12:25, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Steven Belledin[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Steven Belledin has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (biographies) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back. Thank you,

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

unexplained deletion of content[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Alignment_(Dungeons_%26_Dragons)&oldid=687481605

what is your basis for the deletion of this content? you made what appears to be a completely arbitrary supporting statment."(rvt - edit-warring is not the right way to get your point across)" 166.175.57.226 (talk) 22:02, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

I have no particular opinion about the content issues. My concern is your behavior, that it was both inappropriate and unacceptable. You, or whatever other IPs or usernames you have been using to push your agenda, appear to have been warned about edit-warring multiple times already. If you would like to register a complaint, I invite you to make a case at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. BOZ (talk) 22:40, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
i resent you're asserting i'm attempting to "push an agenda." i am interested in the proper channels by which administrator influences can be invited. these other editors are abusing it simply to be as intransigent and deconstructive as they possibly can. and i feel there's a community standard that favors accusations due to the hassle of fully investigating a given situation. point of fact, you removed a whole section and made no opinions on doing it. 166.175.60.148 (talk) 16:55, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Steven Belledin[edit]

A tag has been placed on Steven Belledin requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section R2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from the article namespace to a different namespace except the Category, Template, Wikipedia, Help, or Portal namespaces.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Merry Belated Christmas[edit]

Just happened to log in today to fix an error and I saw your Christmas message. Thanks! I hope all's well on-wiki. Just have so much else going on in life these days I'm afraid I've not the time to aid further despite my desire to do so. Not when there is Adventuring (and one of those "Full-Time Job" things) to be done!

Best of luck in your current and future endeavours. –Drilnoth (T/C) 15:11, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Things are reasonably well on-wiki, Drilnoth! FDF has been gone 2 years, TTN has been gone for one year, and TRPOD seems to be on some kind of Christmas vacation, so all that helps.  ;) I have gotten myself involved in other hobbies so I slowed up here pretty seriously, but I did get my hands on some new sources recently that I have been adding here and there from time to time. :)

Could you check something for me?[edit]

Hi, BOZ. Happy New Year. I hate to bother you with something mundane, but I think I somehow might have placed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/North Texas Film Critics Association in the wrong place: It's dated December 20 yet I can't seem to find it in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2015 December 20.

Qhat I might have done wrong? I placed the AfD tag at North Texas Film Critics Association and created the discussion through the link in the template message. Yet since it's been well over seven days, I'm wondering if I got the AfD lost somehow. No rush, of course — it's a holiday weekend, after all. But I was online so I figured it'd be worth asking as long as I'm here. With best wishes, --Tenebrae (talk) 22:36, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Tenebrae, the AFD page doesn't have the usual template on it, so would that have put it into the right categories and transclusions? I have never started an AFD before so I don't know. BOZ (talk) 00:15, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
I see now what I did wrong — in addition to putting the tag on the page, I have to put it on that day's deletion log manually. I'll restart the process fresh. Thanks for dialoging with me — if you hadn't, I wouldn't have thought to check the directions again! --Tenebrae (talk) 00:19, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

A page you started (Phaulkon) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Phaulkon, BOZ!

Wikipedia editor Maestroso simplo just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Quick note about the references - they are all wikipedia articles, which is okay but it would be better if the references were outside of wikipedia (see WP:CIRCULAR). The entries in the Additional Reading section would be perfect for this!

Dragon review page and reference library[edit]

Hi! Do you mind if we relocate User:BOZ/Dragon video game reviews to Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Reference library/Dragon? This would allow the subpage search feature to index this magazine as well. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 15:19, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Hellknowz, I don't mind if you use it at all!  :) But would you mind doing a copy/paste instead so that you can rewrite or format it any way you like? I'm glad you find it useful! BOZ (talk) 16:18, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Alright, I'll make a copy and linkback to the original page. I do hope to expand it with missing items (if any, I haven't looked carefully). Thanks. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 16:46, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Hellknowz, I'm quite certain there was a "Silycon Sorcery" column that I have not recorded properly at all. I have it noted for Majesty, but I haven't researched to see how extensive the column was. BOZ (talk) 20:56, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
How did you compile the current list of games - did you simply go through the columns? Are the listed columns complete? —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 21:21, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Yep, one by one, it took many hours.  ;) At the time I had an archive collection on CD of up through issue #250. Unfortunately, I don't have that anymore at this time, but I hope to get it back soon. BOZ (talk) 22:44, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Non-constructive edits and reverts of multiple editors by IP editors[edit]

Hi. Can you assist with an IP editor using multiple IP accounts to make repeated non-constructive edits, who reverts both my reverts and Tenebrae's? The articles are Jupiter's Legacy, List of Jupiter's Legacy story arcs and List of Saga story arcs, and these three links are the three most recent reverts.

I and others have attempted to explain the various policies, guidelines, etc. to this editor that are violated by them in our edit summaries when more than one of us have reverted his/her edits, and in the messages I have left on the talk pages of the various IP accounts he/she is using (86.155.179.11, 109.155.200.50, 86.135.160.106, 109.155.147.13, 109.155.133.16). I notice that in at least one case, 86.155.179.11, another editor has also left a message for similar behavior regarding other articles as well.

Two points to note:

Can you block these accounts and protect those articles? Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 19:59, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Fair enough, I will protect the articles for one week. They can use the talk page rather than edit-warring. Since the user appears to have no problem switching IPs, it may not help to block the addresses. If they resume this behavior after the protection expires, let me know and I will take this to AN/I or wherever is better, to get more eyes on the situation. BOZ (talk) 01:44, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Also.....
BOZ, the editor has returned to his/her disruptive edits. Please help. Nightscream (talk) 13:17, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Brianna Hildebrand article[edit]

I was surprised that there was no article for actress Brianna Hildebrand, who plays one of the X-Men in the film Deadpool, when I tried to create it, I saw that it had twice been created and then deleted. The rationale for the first deletion was "actor pages should never redirect to a film page given that they act in multiple roles in different movies, not just one", and no rationale was given for the second, even though there were six reliable, secondary sources for multiple roles of hers. I think she's going to get more roles after Deadpool, and tweaked the draft of that article, creating the version that is here. Can you recreate it? Do you agree she is notable? I think so. Let me know. Thanks again. Nightscream (talk) 20:58, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

If you think Draft:Brianna Hildebrand is ready to go, I can move it into main space. I would even restore the prior edit history if you want to see if there is anything useful there. BOZ (talk) 01:28, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Can you restore the version I worked on? Nightscream (talk) 05:47, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Sure, I copied and pasted that one over the current draft, which was not much different. BOZ (talk) 06:31, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Input requested[edit]

There is a dispute at Talk:Spider-Man and the X-Men over whether a redlink editor's edits violate WikiProject Comics guidelines as fancruft and issue-by-issue synopses. A comparison of two versions is here. I am writing to some longtime Project editors individually, since Portal talk:Comics appears to have very little traffic and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Comics/Notice board has had no postings in years. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:33, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kimber Sissons[edit]

As you may or may not have noticed, I've been going through old AFDs and doing follow-ups on the articles involved. This article, Kimber Sissons, was deleted at the time, but I found this pretty comprehensive profile and I'm thinking she'd meet WP:GNG at this point. The admin that did the delete has been MIA for almost a year, and before that only had a couple dozen edits in the past few years, so I don't think they'll be answering any queries. I don't feel like writing the article from scratch, but I'd be interested in seeing what state its in and adding this new source. Think you could restore it? Thanks. —Torchiest talkedits 02:16, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Hmm, that might be premature. The current article is very stubby and has only two sources. I think another RM specifically for that issue should settle the matter solidly. BOZ (talk) 21:48, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Fictional Entity Deletions[edit]

As noted above in your talk page, there is another round of fictional entity deletions ongoing. Some of these are D&D related and don't appear to be showing up on the project page announcements. Is there a bot which does that or is it just a manual effort?

Also: while looking at some of the current deletions I noted that an IP6 address (or series of them which are probably the same person/people) has gone about and reverted a lot of the merges which were agreed at AFD in 2013. I've reverted these where I could find them - on the grounds that the merges were agreed in formal discussion and in almost all cases the IP address made little or no changes to the restored article. It's hard enough keeping legitimately notable articles in the D&D on wiki without having to deal with deletionists whose ire is raised because of undiscussed restores.Vulcan's Forge (talk) 20:37, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) There are two pages I keep watchlisted to stay on top of these events: Wikipedia:WikiProject Role-playing games/Article alerts and Wikipedia:WikiProject Dungeons & Dragons/Article alerts. Those get populated by a bot automatically as long as the project has a banner on the article's talk page. If you compare the two pages, you can see WP:RPG has a lot more listed than WP:D&D does. I saw that three of the entries didn't have the D&D banner on their talk pages, so I added it. They should show up in the announcements area next time the bot updates. —Torchiest talkedits 21:06, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Baravar Cloakshadow[edit]

Hello, BOZ,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Baravar Cloakshadow should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Baravar Cloakshadow .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, Chris Troutman (talk) 23:36, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

I just closed the AfD for Sekolah [[1]] as a merge. I know nothing about D&D, so I would defer to you for doing the merger in a proper manner. Thank you. And Adoil Descended (talk) 14:00, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

User:Jclemens/List of Neverwinter Nights characters[edit]

FYI, I had this userified for sourcing improvement. If you're able to help me add the RS'es you found in the AfD discussion, this should be a reasonably easy fix. Thanks, Jclemens (talk) 22:37, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, Jclemens. I did add the one decent source I found from all the links I posted in the AFD. Of course, I only looked up the characters under the "Original Campaign" section, which accounts for probably less than 10% of the characters in the list, so there are likely more to be found. If you want to give me a hand, I would be happy to work on this some more (but not this weekend, definitely busy). BOZ (talk) 02:15, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
No rush, my available time will be rather limited as well. Jclemens (talk) 05:35, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
OK Jclemens, a few weeks later, and I have some time to kill, so I'm going to look a bit more to see what I can find at the search engine for VGs. BOZ (talk) 01:49, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
OK, I went through all the NWN 1 characters and found a couple more sources. I will try to find some time to go through all the NWN 2 characters when I find some time. BOZ (talk) 02:35, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Request for RfC closure[edit]

Hi, Boz. I hate to ask, but there is a backlog going back to March 14 at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Requests for closure, and in this instance an admin knowledgable about comics would be appropriate anyway. Would you consider closing the now month-long RfC at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Comics#Request for Comment: Quotes and italics? Thank you for any help. With regards, as always, --Tenebrae (talk) 23:49, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm out of town and not properly available for at least the next 24 hours or so, but if I can find the time (and remember) to take a look at it, I will see what I can do. No promises at all though. BOZ (talk) 12:45, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate it, BOZ. I won't say anything to influence you one way or the other. --Tenebrae (talk) 21:29, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
There's a lot going on there... I don't know if I'm the best person to make a judgment call. :( BOZ (talk) 01:18, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Well, I was asking a favor because of the months-long backup at the RfC closure page, so I can't fault someone for not feeling up to it. I understand. I do think that now I can say, since you're staying away, that I don't believe there's much of a judgment call when eight editors agree on a consensus and basically two do not — one of whom has rejected, by hurling insults, two offers of a compromise. Ah, well. I'll try the RfC closure page, which could take two months for a response. Thank you anyway. I mean that. With regards, --Tenebrae (talk) 05:23, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, BOZ. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

BOZ, can you move Thermal imaging camera (firefighting) back to Thermal imaging camera. I'll note the hatnote on the article already points to Thermographic camera, but now that that article has been moved, my article is PRIMARYTOPIC at that name again...

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

Move talk page?[edit]

Hey, can you swap the talk pages Talk:STRFKR and Talk:Starfucker? I moved the main space pages but the talk pages didn't move. Thanks. —Torchiest talkedits 20:47, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

Sure thing, Torchiest. I don't think it's possible to just "swap" them, so I will probably have to move one to a temporary location, move the other one in, and then move the first one to the second one's name. Hmm, let me see. :) BOZ (talk) 20:58, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi BOZ.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Trump (comics)[edit]

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Joy Meachum[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Joy Meachum requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Proposed deletion of Joy Meachum[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Joy Meachum has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage from reliable sources should talk about the character in a way which gives its notability from a real world or out-of-universe perspective. This means they are covered as a character in general, and not in the frames of its own series of fiction. For example, an observation of in-game statistics or a simple retelling of their role in the plot means little; the source should give commentary on why these things make it an interesting or notable character = fails WP:NFCHAR / WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

MrLinkinPark333, yeah, thanks for getting back to me. That one, along with Draft:Ethan Skemp and Draft:Richard Ranallo were deleted for being unsourced.

Hi, I'm ONUnicorn. BOZ, thanks for creating Star-Dancer!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Article relies entirely on citations to the comics she appeared in. Needs citations to outside sources to show real-world context and notability.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:A.O..jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:A.O..jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status and its source. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. You will also need to state under what licensing terms it was released. Please refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file.

Please add this information by editing the image description page. If the necessary information is not added within the next seven days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Headsup about stub articles[edit]

Hey, there. I am thinking about creating some stub articles for RPG designer stubs, and might draw on some of the material you have in draft form (e.g. Grabowski and Marsh). Would this be alright with you? Newimpartial (talk) 16:23, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

If you want to work on those drafts, you can do it directly and/or I can move them back into article space. If you're talking about something else, I'm not sure what you mean. BOZ (talk) 05:43, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
OK. Thanks! I'll do it when I'm ready. Newimpartial (talk) 11:19, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
Sounds good, Newimpartial! Anything you feel like working on at User:BOZ/Draft pages, if you can get a reliable source or two I will move back into article space. :) Any of the redlinks I can restore if you want to work on them. BOZ (talk) 00:54, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
Please see the note I wrote you on my Talk page. Also, Do you have anything on Robert Hatch (game designer)? I created a placeholder for him, too. (And a couple for ORE games, but I know that's not your thang lol).Newimpartial (talk) 21:19, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
So, I released Robert Hatch into the world last night; thanks for your help. If you had a chance to think about sourcing for my userspace article, Line developer, I would appreciate it. I want to get that one finished before I put out the Grabowski and Baugh articles. Newimpartial (talk) 12:36, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Sounds good. Very busy today, so I don't have time to really work on anything, but maybe tomorrow. Just for future reference, especially on the ones I have in draft space, you can always just use the "move" fuction to retain the edit history, rather than doing a cut and paste. BOZ (talk) 18:40, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! No rush on anything, just in case you have the time, I wanted you to know what was up next for me. I published using "move", but I guess it never occurred to me to use "move" to fix a title issue. Now I know. :) Newimpartial (talk) 18:51, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Not to be a pain, but could you check something else when you have a chance? The Category:Live-action role-playing game designers has a red link to an article Live-action role-playing game designers. Did that ever exist? If it did, could you dig up an old draft? I'm not sure I want to make an article, but I'm thinking of adding some more content to the List of role-playing game designers in this vein. No rush, though. Whenever you have a chance.Newimpartial (talk) 05:17, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Not a problem, but in this case that page never existed. BOZ (talk) 12:14, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for checking! Line developer won't be ready til the weekend, I think, in case you can think of a source besides Designers to edit in. I think I'm going to have to make a brief historical summary to have grounds for WP:N for that article.
I think it's important, because one of the categories of people that keep running into WP:NOTABILITY problems is game designers who are more notable as line developers than for their author credits. White Wolf made this particularly bad by crediting game creators as "lead designers" or "lead developers" and treating authorship more like what would be "contributing author" status for other companies, but I am implementing work-arounds for this problem as I go. However, it would be good to have a backstop for cases like Grabowski where I think notability is obvious, but it is based on the relationship between the line developer and the notable work.Newimpartial (talk) 12:28, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
I have my own feelings about Notability which does not necessarily match with the most commonly-held attitudes among Wikipedians.  ;) I say go for it, if you have at least one good WP:RS we can always try to find more, but one good one is a good place to start. BOZ (talk) 01:45, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
I imagine you do have some feelings. ;) It is too bad about the Emily Care Boss article; I have a feeling people didn't have the Platinum Appendix at hand when editing that one. Anyway, I've found bloody peer reviewed scholarship attesting to her importance, so when I'm done with that article (hopefully by the end of the month) there should not be any issues with WP:N. Thanks for fighting the good fight, though. Newimpartial (talk) 01:49, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
Great, keep up the good work! BOZ (talk) 01:51, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Hey, sorry to bother you again, but I have another question. I see that the Nicotine Girls article is currently a redirect, as a result of an AfD discussion based on a short article (which doesn't seem to have observed that the game was notable because of its Indie award, but anyway, the sourcing of the article could have been better). I'm not working on it tonight, but when I have something ready, could you stop the redirect so that we could put up the article? I'm not sure exactly how to do that, and I imagine you do. :) Newimpartial (talk) 03:44, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Easy enough, Newimpartial! Just go to this link: [3] and edit! Make sure to add your sources ASAP before someone reverts you. BOZ (talk) 21:07, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

You might think about moving from draft to userspace anything you have that is more than six months stale or that has been rejected at AfC, as the deletor is extraordinarily active at the moment. Newimpartial (talk) 01:28, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

I'm not too worried about them getting deleted, but hey if you've got anything that will improve any of them then we have less of a reason to worry about that. :) BOZ (talk) 02:31, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

RE:Menzoberranzan[edit]

Hey BOZ. I can't remember whether they talked about it, but I'll look through those reviews and send you whatever I find. It almost feels like I saw them mention it a few times. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 07:51, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

JimmyBlackwing, thanks! I will take whatever you can find. :) BOZ (talk) 11:23, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
Unfortunately, looking through the reviews, there wasn't much in the way of commentary on the city. The best material was in this review, but I doubt it even that will be helpful. If all else fails, you could try the game's official manual and cluebook. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 00:22, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
You're right, but thanks for checking! BOZ (talk) 04:22, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Question re "merges"[edit]

What is the proper procedure for merging articles? I've noticed a couple of times that TTN simply redirects the article to be lost, but does not transfer any material. In effect, the article to be lost is simply deleted. Is this proper form? Or is the "re-director" also supposed to merge some material from the redirected article? Guinness323 (talk) 06:33, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I don't think he's under any obligation to merge anything, as the difference between merge and redirect is an editorial decision. It would be polite of him to do some of the actual merging, but I am not holding my breath for politeness there. Naturally, he wants the material gone from WP, so why would he want to include it anywhere else? On the other hand, it would be improper for him to prevent anyone else from merging it properly. BOZ (talk) 11:27, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Davey2010, for the record going back through 6/29/2017 that would include the following redirects after AFD: [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] and those you are already aware of: [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] as well as: [26] [27] BOZ (talk) 22:57, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi BOZ, Quite frankly I've had enough of them for one day so I don't plan to revert however if you wanted to send them to AN/I I'd support - They're clearly ignoring consensus (I do agree it is an editorial thing but this goes beyond that - they're just redirecting without looking or quite honestly caring), Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:01, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
    • I can't disagree with you, but I don't have any intention of reverting any of these either. I prefer not to waste my time on negativity; life is too short for that, and there is plenty of it out there. BOZ (talk) 23:03, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
  • I 100% agree with you, Think it's fair to say we both have better things to do with our time, Thanks for the ping anyway, Happy editing, –Davey2010Talk 23:25, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Just so everyone is on the same page. I am not going against any guideline or policy, so I'm not going to stop. If anyone has a better idea than me wasting my time merging unneeded content, I'm open to it. If someone wants to do it, at least for the D&D articles, I'm not demanding it be done the same day or even within the same month. It just needs to be done with actual consistency rather than leaving it indefinitely. TTN (talk) 23:07, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Source question[edit]

Hey BOZ! Sorry to bother you, but do you by any chance still have access to those news archive services (like NewsBank/LexisNexis)? I know it's been many, many years since I last asked, but I thought it might be worth a shot. I'm trying to find a December 10, 1998 article in the Orange County Register called something like "Violence Not Wanted; Can't We Play Nice?". It contains sales figures for the Gabriel Knight series. I've been able to find part of it online, but not enough to fill out a citation template. Thanks! JimmyBlackwing (talk) 16:36, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

I'd love to help if I can, no bother! I know that User:Torchiest and User:Paul Erik had access to sources like that in the past, but not sure if either of them does now. I do have some access at my local library, so I can probably check sometime this week. BOZ (talk) 17:46, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
I found it. It's Leslie Gornstein (December 10, 1998). "Violence not wanted: Can't we play nice?: The nonbloody adventure games preferred by female players are a dying breed", The Orange County Register, p. C01. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 17:52, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a ton, guys! Paul, would it be possible for you to email me (Special:EmailUser/JimmyBlackwing) the full article text? I'd like to verify that the version I read online is 100% accurate, if at all possible. Thanks again. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 18:19, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome! I've sent you an email, JimmyBlackwing. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 18:33, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Received. Perfect! I really appreciate it. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 18:44, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

D&D AfDs[edit]

Are you able to go through Find Sources templates too? I simply don't have enough time to go through everything at 3-4/day. It only takes maybe 5 minutes per, but that's time I don't consistently have during any particular 7-day period... Jclemens (talk) 05:41, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

I may be able to find some time to do it Jclemens, but I am also often busy, and I may have less than ideal access to sites depending on where I am logging in from. The intended effect of spamming multiple AFDs per day is to get people to "eventually tire out and stop responding", which seems like an effective enough tactic - overwhelm people who don't have as much free time in their day to effectively respond to the nominations as the nominator seems to have in creating the AFDs. BOZ (talk) 05:57, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Just to clarify, I mean that eventually people stop responding no matter what frequency, so I eventually have to stop because AfDs are being relisted three times and then end as no consensus due to not enough people. TTN (talk) 20:07, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
TTN, since these all seem to end up merge anyways, why do you bother taking them to AfD? Redirect the ones you believe to be NN, and AfD things that are un-merged without sufficient sources being added. If you want help figuring out the right merge/redirect targets, I'd much rather help with that than participate in yet another AfD. Jclemens (talk) 00:29, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
I don't mind redirecting. There are three problems: those who undo my redirects automatically because I'm me, those who undo the redirects anonymously three months later (I'm fairly convinced in the case of the D&D articles that it is an established user just logging out), and then someone (@FreeKnowledgeCreator:) who at one point undid a bunch of them and told me it was AfD or bust (or editwarring and bust but I would not win that fight). For the first, I'll just have to play that by ear. I certainly don't mind following a BRD (or BRAFD most likely) set up in the case of the someone making an honest claim of notability or an anon undoing them months later, but the third will have to agree not to wholesale revert unless there is an actual specific reason for it. TTN (talk) 01:17, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
TTN, I respectfully submit there is no good reason to complain about something I did a long time ago and might not have the least inclination to do again. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 01:19, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
That was only 10 or 11 months ago, so I expected little reason for it to change. But if you're fine only challenging redirects that you personally find improper, I'm fine cutting out the bulk of D&D AfDs. I won't go insane and redirect 1000 pages in a week, so I'll limit it to basically the amount of AfDs I would start on a normal day. 01:24, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
At this point, I think we've done enough that a WP:OUTCOMES entry is appropriate. I'd much rather have the history intact so that non-admins can see what might be worth either merging or fleshing out. In fact, I think I'm going to go start a discussion for one now... Jclemens (talk) 04:13, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
I added my 2 cents, for what it's worth. BOZ (talk) 11:20, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve Falcon (video game)[edit]

Hi, I'm Triptothecottage. BOZ, thanks for creating Falcon (video game)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Nice article BOZ. Maybe a few sentences in the lead about the game's release and reception would help summarise it.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Triptothecottage (talk) 06:00, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Didn't realise I was reviewing from the end of NPP - I'll show myself out. Triptothecottage (talk) 06:02, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for reviewing Final Challenge, BOZ.

Unfortunately Onel5969 has just gone over this page again and unreviewed it. Their note is:

Hi. Still not enough referencing to show notability, but let's let an uninterested 3rd party decide whether or not it should be passed as review.

Re:Video games based on tabletop games[edit]

Hey BOZ! Thanks a ton—your work adding Dragon reviews to articles some years ago was my biggest inspiration for all this. I'll absolutely keep an eye out for sources on those games. I should have no problem adding reception details to most of them. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 20:18, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Hey, just wanted to mention that I've seen some fantastic reviews for the 1996 Risk adaptation, if you'd be interested in starting a stub for that. I could certainly provide a reception section. Noticing just now that Risk II lists no reviews, despite being well received, so I'll probably hit that next. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 04:26, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
  • There was also a Kingmaker (board game) adaptation that was apparently a pretty big deal, but doesn't have an article. Its Mobygames page is here. It was nominated for an award in one of my magazines, and I've seen positive reviews. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 05:01, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Silly me! Not only was there a Kingmaker article, but it looks like I've edited it recently. I'm not sure how I managed that. Thanks for the heads-up! I'll keep an eye out for the Risk stub. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 15:37, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Sorry to bother you again, but I had one more idea for a boardgame adaptation stub. While adding awards/reviews to articles, I noticed a boardgame adaptation series called Great Battles picking a wargame of the year nomination. They seem to be pretty obscure, but there's a Mobygames entry and they're on GOG. It seems that they're based on The Great Battles of Alexander boardgame. If you're at all interested in creating a series stub, I could easily fill out the reception with the stuff I've found—reviewers seemed to like them. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 22:40, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Oh, you're definitely not bothering me! I've recently taken a huge interest in computer adaptations of boardgames, so this is right up my alley. Many thanks for setting up that stub/redirect (I didn't even realize that GMT had an article)—I'll get to work on the reception section. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 11:06, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
  • I'll see what I can do! Those mid-80s games can be hard to source, but I'm sure I can find a review or two (it's an Avalon Hill game, after all). JimmyBlackwing (talk) 11:58, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Will do! And thanks for reorganizing the links—that will make it easier to keep track of the to-do list. I have big plans for the article on Diplomacy computer games (it turns out that they had a complicated history), and a lot of these new articles you added should be easy to find sources for. I'll get to work. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 05:53, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────This isn't quite boardgame-related, but I've been working on the article for a wargame called Robert E. Lee: Civil War General on the side lately (while still chipping away at the list). It seems to have been really successful and popular, but I haven't found many sources on it. If you have time, I'd really appreciate it if you could do a couple of searches in your news archives for this game! I feel like there's probably some coverage or at least a review in one of those old newspapers. If it helps your search, it was published by Sierra On-Line and developed by a company called Impressions. Thank you! JimmyBlackwing (talk) 22:58, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Awesome, thank you! Yeah, Lee is definitely a hot topic right now, although my interest in this game has more to do with its phenomenal sales (for the genre) than its subject matter. Have fun at Gen Con! JimmyBlackwing (talk) 06:36, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Hey BOZ, many thanks for the articles! I can't wait to go through them. I'll be sure to ask Paul if he has access to the other ones you mentioned. Really appreciate this! JimmyBlackwing (talk) 03:54, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Hero Wars redirect[edit]

Hey Boz,

That is some really good historical material you added to Hero Wars, but it still remains that the game isn't independently notable from its later editions, and for the say majority of its history (and therefore its WP:COMMONNAME) it has been known by its original intended title. So I merged that material into the HeroQuest article's history section: oknazevad (talk) 20:08, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

OK, that's fine. :) BOZ (talk) 21:55, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
