Daughter (Single)[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Daughter (Single), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Time Out of Mind (disambiguation), by PEJL (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Time Out of Mind (disambiguation) fits the criteria for speedy deletion for the following reason:

redundant disambig page because only one entry has an article


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Time Out of Mind (disambiguation), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Time Out of Mind (disambiguation) itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 12:55, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised.

January 2008[edit]

Please don't cut&paste content from articles into another. The attribution of the original authors is an important part of the GFDL, you aren't the author of the content. Mentioning at least the 5 main authors of the content is required, and state where it was copied from (both in the edit summary). Best you include the edit history since this edit, e. g. at the talk page. Regards --Oxymoron83 23:42, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

I've done this per your request, you can now fix the introduction and add some categories. Please don't add the interwiki links again, as they link to film articles only. --Oxymoron83 00:43, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Zelda Templates[edit]

Further to your comments at Template talk:The Legend of Zelda I've started a discussion here about the issue in order to try and establish a consensus. I didn't mean to cause any trouble; the main reason I didn't work on an existing template was that I didn't want to disrupt anything that was heavily used and out of the three templates effectively depreciated I wasn't sure if it was right to use any one over the others.

Alternate titles, and columns in Lists of articles[edit]

I noticed that you are a contributor in the "List of Famicom games", and I'd like to invite you to contribute to the Talk:List of Nintendo 64 games#Removal of Alternate Titles and Number of Players where we are discussing the use of keeping alternate titles in the "List of...games" some have suggested that they take up too much space and that other columns could seem to be "useful only to fans", and other things that have been mentioned that, and other 'List of' talk pages. I hope you'll come and give you opinion, and hopefully keep these type of concerns from arising again and again at each "List of" pages. (Floppydog66 (talk) 23:32, 18 December 2008 (UTC))

Game Play[edit]

The board itself is divided into squares representing forty-nine of the fifty-two weeks in a year, with different sections grouped together under the usual harvest for that season. Whereas there are multiple sections for harvesting hay (your first, second, third, and even fourth cutting), Livestock are sold only once a year. Similar to real life, poor timing (or unlucky die rolls) can cause the player to miss, or skip over, a harvest.

Players take turns rolling a die, traveling around the board, harvesting their crops when they can. Crops are purchased through O.T.B. (Option to Buy) cards usually referencing "Neighbor Sells Out: 10 Acres Grain", the crops are grouped into Hay, Grain (Wheat and Corn), Fruit (Apples and Cherries), and Livestock (Cattle). Whereas hay is the cheapest to purchase and most often harvested, just as in real life, the chance for large profit is much smaller than with livestock or fruit. What balances this game, and provides the most difficulty for real life farmers, are operating expenses. In The Farming Game, whenever a player harvests a crop, he draws a card entitled "Operating Expense", examples of which are "Pay $500 for Irrigation" or "Seed Bill Due: Pay $1,000". Also, certain spaces on the board instruct the player to draw a "Farmer's Fate" card. "Farmer's Fate" cards are usually unfortunate for the player, including references to the drought in the 1970s in which all the player's livestock are slaughtered.

Strategy[edit]

The Farming Game is a heavily chance dependent game, and thus the winner is usually determined by luck.[citation needed] However, a player can increase his or her chances of winning by knowing which crops are more likely to be profitable and use this information to make advantageous trades with other players.

Based upon the probabilities of landing on each square and the average selling price of each commodity, Hay is slightly less profitable than Grain, while Cattle averages about 1.5 times as much profit as Grain. Fruit is even more lucrative, earning about 2.5 times as much profit as Grain.

Thus, a player's first choice should always be to plant as much Fruit as possible. In fact, the advantage is so great that the winner will usually be the player lucky enough to draw the most "O.T.B. Fruit" cards.

A player's second choice should then be to raise Cattle, however, the game limits the number of Cattle you can raise on the farm to 20. In order to raise more, you must lease additional land, but in doing so you must pay a large fee. This fee is, in fact, higher than the total profit you are likely to earn on the Cattle by the end of the game! In other words, not only will you likely lose money on the investment, but you will also be losing the opportunity to invest your money in more profitable commodities. Thus, you should never lease additional land to raise Cattle.

A player's third choice should then be to choose to focus upon either Grain or Hay. If two players can agree to swap commodities so that one grows only Grain while the other grows only Hay, then they will both have a slight advantage over other players who grow both crops because they will pay less in harvesting fees. Note, however, that the Grain player will still have a slight advantage over the Hay player, which may make negotiating such a deal difficult. Another disadvantage to this strategy is that it decreases both player's chances of harvesting. If a player grows both, he removes a lot of the variability involved in his expected profit.

February 2012[edit]

Thank you for your interest in editing Wikipedia. Your edit was successful, but because it was not considered beneficial to the page, the edit has been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment with editing, please use the sandbox instead. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Please don't edit live templates as you did with Stryper and Live. Use your own space or look at the templates. Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:59, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

You know what, I was actually making a template for the rock band Whitecross and was using Live and Stryper as the basic foundation. I was going to revert all my edits on Stryper and Live anyway, and they were unintentional, so lay off.
