Sega Ages Switch series[edit]

I don't think you can count the SEGA AGES as a compilation. A compilation would be several different games put together in one package, as SEGA GENESIS CLASSICS release is. The SEGA AGES is a series of separate releases, not a compilation. Additionally, why are SEGA AGES and SONIC THE HEDGEHOG listed on the Switch page as a separate releases? It makes no sense as there is no game/individual release called SEGA AGES; it's a brand name for a reissues programme. The SEGA AGES releases should either be individually logged as separate releases (if I wanted both Thunder Force IV and Sonic the Hedgehog, I buy and pay from them separately, they are not a compilation), or they need to be separately linked to, as is the case with Hamster's ARCADE ARCHIVE re-issue series.

Jun Chikuma discography[edit]

In this revision, you removed information about her non-game discography. Was that mostly because it was formated in an unorthodox and slightly confusing way? I was going to add a section similar to this, so I thought I'd ask for advice from someone more knowledgeable on game music articles. RoseCherry64 (talk) 00:23, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

  • @RoseCherry64: I did, mostly because it was a large collection of unsourced entries. At least the games can be reasonably confirmed to have been worked on by Chikuma, so I kept them. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 03:22, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

So can we get to work on fixing the atrocious state the page is in? Worldless0 (talk) 01:45, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Alex Smith/currency edit[edit]

While you are correct, may I point out the full sentence (quoting from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Currencies):

"Use the full abbreviation on first use (US$ for the US dollar and A$ for the Australian dollar), unless the currency is already clear from context." (emphasis theirs)

It then continues:

"For example, the government of the United States always spends money in American dollars, and never in Canadian or Australian dollars."

It is this same reasoning with which I made the edit in the first place. Why would an American player on an American team use any other currency besides the American dollar?

That is why I respectfully request that you restore the text or allow me to do it.

  • @1980fast: Yeah, that's reasonable. I'll go ahead and revert. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 03:31, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
    • @Dissident93: Thanks! I see you've already undone it. Have a great day! 1980fast (talk) 20:16, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Winning Percentage in NFL QB Wins page[edit]

It appears that you removed the winning percentage column in the table. Why would you do that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.211.137.223 (talk) 23:45, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

  • @24.211.137.223: Because in a bloated table, raw wins are more important than win percentage. If you want to discuss its return, do so on its talk page. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 00:59, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

About Dragalia Lost release date[edit]

Hello, I know you said that only English releases are allowed. But is there anywhere where the other countries can be placed? As for people such as myself that live in Australia, Dragalia Lost doesn't appear on Google Play, and when I spoke to them, they said that the app hasn't been released in Australia and that it was region locked. By having one release date, it will make people think that it has been released in other English countries, but then find out that it hasn't. Not sure what you mean by "place it in prose". Any help would gladly appreciated. Thank you so much! —Platinum Lucario (talk) 14:28, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

  • @Platinum Lucario: Yes, they belong in prose (the history/release section of the article), WP:VG/DATE says we should only include English regions (along with the developer's region, which is Japan in this case) in the lead and infobox. I'll fix it if you haven't by the time I see this. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 20:24, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Rolando McClain[edit]

Do you have a source that McClain has been released by the Cowboys since his suspension? Otherwise, suspended players have their contracts toll for each year suspended, meaning McClain will indefinitely be a member of the Cowboys until they release him from his contract. Same with Justin Blackmon, who is still technically under contract with the Jaguars despite being suspended indefinitely. Mychal Kendricks will be in the same scenario unless and until he is reinstated from suspension or the Seahawks release him. Eagles 24/7 (C) 17:36, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Also, just because a player is not listed on a team website run by a PR department does not mean they are not technically on the roster. Those rosters are not 100% accurate. Eagles 24/7 (C) 17:39, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
@Eagles247: They are the team's official rosters, if they are no longer listed there they shouldn't be listed here either. You are just assuming (WP:OR) that he's still an active member of the team because there was never any official transaction releasing him. I'm pretty sure we already discussed this over at WT:NFL. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 20:22, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
The team rosters are unofficial just like the depth charts put out by the PR department. For instance, Le'Veon Bell is listed under "Reserve/Franchise Tag" on the Steelers' "official" roster despite Reserve/Franchise Tag not being an official NFL roster designation and Bell technically not being a member of the Steelers' roster since he has not signed a contract. Mychal Kendricks is nowhere to be seen on the "official" Seahawks roster despite being suspended just days ago. If you were a member of the team's PR department, would it help your brand to promote a possible negative mark on your team by listing a player suspended indefinitely by the NFL? I'm assuming McClain is still a member of the team (i.e. under contract) because there is no evidence that he is not a member of the team and lots of evidence that he is a member of the team. Just because there is no end date to his tenure yet doesn't mean there won't be one in the future (like in the case of Tyrone Robertson). It doesn't appear that a consensus was reached on this matter at WT:NFL, and I understand that you want to put a cap on some of these players' careers but please exercise patience. Eagles 24/7 (C) 14:11, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
What happened between this discussion and now for you? You seem to agree with my argument in March, but now completely disagree. Eagles 24/7 (C) 14:20, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
@Eagles247: Nothing did. If you had brought up Robertson's example then, I would have 100% disagreed and cited it as an extreme example we shouldn't account for. He obviously was not an active member of the team for 15 years (no contact with the team, no attempts to return), so him being released from the list after that long is an exceptional case. Even Blackmon is no longer listed on the Jaguar's roster, so I'd support removing him being of a current member of the team from his page if we were to have this discussion again (which we should, because I don't agree with your recent edits). ~ Dissident93 (talk) 20:57, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
Please see WT:NFL#Suspended players (for apparently the third or fourth time). Eagles 24/7 (C) 21:26, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Atari[edit]

LordTobi said I should speak to you about the Atari edit I did (and you reverted) on The Witcher.

He said to be that he finds it useful to put Atari, Inc. to visually disambiguate it from other Ataris that have existed and still do (such as Atari, SA). I'm sure you know this but the company that's currently known as Atari, Inc. (which is linked into the infobox of the page, but when shown it just says Atari) isn't the same Atari, Inc. from years prior.

Could you tell me which name is more or less a better choice? Luigitehplumber (talk) 12:38, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
