Vulkan Github[edit]

Why would the official Vulkan Github that is actively updated, not able to be a source? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jules789 (talkcontribs) 00:51, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Jules789: Because it's all user submitted and not really something that is stable? ~ Dissident93 (talk) 02:19, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

The KhronosGroup Github which the log is from is not user submitted... It's the same guys who created Vulkan... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jules789 (talkcontribs) 03:25, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Jules789: Cool, but that doesn't change the fact that Github itself is not an ideal source, as code comes and goes and it could be hard to verify the information, unless directly linked to or something. If it's really that important, then clearly other sources should be reporting on it, right?

Death Stranding PC version.[edit]

A source of this does not exist, it has been deleted. All the websites that talk about a PC version refer to a deleted Q&A. If you want to verify it try and contact Sony Eu community manager Lucas Liaskos (@PadPoet) who is according to reddit the source of this Q&A. It could be that they are trying to hide the PC version but we can't unsourced rumors on wiki.

If you have anything new on this please let me know.Virtuous.Gizzard (talk) 02:54, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Virtuous.Gizzard: I'm aware, however you shouldn't be removing third-party articles that discuss the possibility of it. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 09:54, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
  • @Dissident93: I don't understand why you insist on this: I should be removing third-party articles that recycle rumors. ALL of the third-party articles that mention the possibility of a PC version cite a Q&A that was never verified and that's deleted. There is no source. Virtuous.Gizzard (talk) 17:35, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
    • @Virtuous.Gizzard: I'm not arguing for the PC version being real, but you're just removing facts because you don't think it should be there. Doesn't matter if the Q&A turned out to be false, it was (at one point in time) reported on by mainstream media, and that's enough to be included in the article in past tense. We don't remove articles on the Earth being flat and other old myths and legends just because they turned out not to be true, do we? ~ Dissident93 (talk) 00:05, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
  • you're just removing facts

No I am removing unverified rumors, the very definition of what we as editors are supposed to do. You are bordeline vandalizing the article without showing any sources. You are forcing me to monitor the article on a daily basis.

You called the sources "third-party articles that discuss the possibility of it." & "facts". On both instances you are wrong, they are not discussing, they are reposting a rumor. You are not helping me see how this should be on the wiki page. Even the reddit page that brought it up was locked. If you want to get ideas for the page follow the wikia page:

Encyclopedic content must be verifiable[edit]

Please remember that "Encyclopedic content must be verifiable". Your edits ARE NOT VERIFIABLE. Virtuous.Gizzard (talk) 15:00, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Virtuous.Gizzard: Just because something was deleted doesn't make it automatically invalid, that's why the internet archive and third-party sources exists. Multiple reliable sources state that it existed and was later deleted, making it verifiable. I'll continue to revert your removal of the info until a larger consensus is brought up, because right now you're just removing it because WP:IDONTLIKEIT without stating another other WP policy. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 22:04, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

No I am not removing anything because I don't like it. I have been trying to explain the situation as best as I can and you keep replying with the same one sentence excuse. I am deleting it because it has, in fact, been extensively discussed on the reddit page that originally brought it up and the wikia page of DS.

The Q&A is credited to a EU Sony community manager, who never verified it when reached numerous times for a moment. The Q&A names no names to begin with. Who is this man within Kojima Pro to begin with that talked for the company ? Reliable sources are often wrong with big rumors that make the rounds. Merely saying a rumor exists and pointing to reddit does NOT make anything verifiable.

I am trying to keep the article fact based and you are not helping. "a larger consensus" has in fact been reached as I said above, if you had been following the discussion but even that is irrelevant to wikipedia. You cannot keep adding information that is not based on anything.

Virtuous.Gizzard (talk) 04:53, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Regarding my edit on a cancelled Intelligent Systems game on Wii U plus other information.[edit]

Hey, I have yet another complaint regarding recent news that surfaces online, Regarding Intelligent Systems cancelled Wii U game that I posted, there was no other news (yet) other than the YouTube video posting the news. So I waited until there was official news about it. And that's why I posted the news from Siliconera about 10 minutes ago. As for other news which doesn't apply to the game. News such as various Super Mario Run stuff should be posted when news approaches. Is there any way Wikipedia articles can be updated with information as news comes? Why is that so difficult? Zacharyalejandro (talk) 19:42, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Rob Kelley[edit]

I did an minor edit adding that Rob Kelley started the season as the third running back and won the job in four starts in place of Matt Jones. You reverted it and said its "obvious" since Matt Jones has been a healthy scartcg for four games now? Unless somebody follows the redskins, they wouldn't know that. I'm not a redskins fan and I didn't hear about Rob Kelley until he began playing. That's why I stated he was their third running back to begin the season. Toeknee44 (talk) 19:43, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Redskins roster[edit]

Hi I noticed you commented on the revision you made to the Redskins roster and I just wanted to clarify some information. Rookies do sign multi-year contracts initially, but both those players were released during final roster cuts, thus voiding that multi-year contract. Both those players were signed to the practice squad which is a new contract, then when they were promoted, they sign a new contract, typically for one year. At the end of the season, that contract expires making them an exclusive rights free agent. More often than not those ERFAs do get re-signed by that team since it doesn't cost them much to retain them. Just wanted to clarify that with you. Thanks!

  • @Jrooster49: Yeah, I forgot that happened and didn't realize it would affect things. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 08:01, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

You removed a whole section without even consulting with the previous editors first. No text was unquoted and all sources were verified.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[edit]

I'm gonna tell you one bit about how you reverted a lot of things and called my sources invalid because you are STUCK on the English version of the game. A-LIM is credited as the developer here and GUMI is a publisher, period. And you always shoot it down as "invalid, invalid, invalid source don't care". If you don't go to other sources or just acknowledge the Japanese version exist, then what's the point of the page existing? It's a Japanese videogame, let it have some Japanese sources and not restrict it to american sources.--BlackGaia02 (talkpage if you dare) (talk) 04:40, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

It's because when I first created that page, it was A-Lim who was credited as one of the game developers, waaay way back when the page is created. It's not like it's removed when you edited it because you see it as unfit.--BlackGaia02 (talkpage if you dare) (talk) 13:12, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
And how does that change the present day, where the information may have been changed? The official website doesn't make mention of this company AFAIK. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 09:17, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Rust's Vulkan support[edit]

Hey, I've been searching for a bit now for a source that says Rust supports Vulkan but was unable to find one, where did you find the information? It could be included in the development section. Anarchyte (work | talk) 12:46, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Cheers. It seems it's just a simple update, no need to include it in the development section. Anarchyte (work | talk) 12:07, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Source of The Snack World delay (you undid my edit of the page 'Level-5 (company)')[edit]

Hey, I wanted to tell you why I think my edit of the page Level-5 (company) wasn't false. The truth is that at Level-5 Vision 2016, the company announced that the mobile version of The Snack World would release in April 2017 and that the Nintendo 3DS version would follow later, in July 2017. (see also "Gematsu". ). In fact, I got the information from the home page of Level-5's official website (in Japanese) and the same is shown on the official website of the game itself (see also "the official website of The Snack World". ). Scroll down to the end of the page. It says "[Android/iOS] 2017年4月予定", which means Android/iOS scheduled in 4th month of the year 2017 (April 2017) and "[ニンテンドー3DS] 2017年7月予定", which means Nintendo 3DS scheduled in July 2017. So I'm sorry, I should've addressed my source of information better, but I want to clarify it this way. I hope you agree that my edit can be un-undone again. :) Sincerely, TheLegendaryN (talk) 20:11, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Super Mario Odyssey[edit]

Just heard your name come up on a podcast about the Sonic 3 soundtrack. Spent 15 minutes thinking "Why do I know that name..." Popcornduff (talk) 07:18, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

  • @Popcornduff: From the "interviews" I did around 2012/2013, probably. What podcast was it? I believe I was also mentioned by name in the Gametrailers Pop Fiction episode on MJ/Sonic 3 a few years back too. I didn't mean to create news, I was just personally curious at the time (and still am, but not enough to bother anybody with it anymore). ~ Dissident93 (talk) 11:03, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
It was the Super Marcato Brothers podcast, which I only just started listening to. The MJ connection is definitely super interesting. Popcornduff (talk) 11:32, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
@Popcornduff: Oh them, I remember Karl (one of the brothers) from way back when he was still doing the Sonicesque series. I think I even sent him some suggestions or something for his music, but I can't fully remember. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 11:36, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Positive reviews[edit]

You can receive positive reviews for a performance. Like in a film... Toeknee44 (talk) 19:23, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Sonic Gems Collection boxart[edit]

Do you have the license to add video game boxart to Wikipedia? Sonic Gems Collection needs its boxart, and I don't have the right to... (TheJoebro64 (talk) 12:23, 30 January 2017 (UTC))

  • @TheJoebro64: No, and I doubt that anybody on Wikipedia does (unless they work for Sega). But WP:NFCI states that fair use is given to cover art (for use in infoboxes), which is how all the other game articles are able to use them. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 12:31, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

What were you asking about here? Lizard (talk) 23:12, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

@Lizard the Wizard: I meant to ask if they are really supposed to be separated into both kick and punt returns, but I remembered that also does them like that. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 05:49, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Eiko Shimamiya and discography articles[edit]

I am cross-posting this from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Japan because I'm not sure how active that is. You are listed on Wikipedia:WikiProject Japan/Music task force as an expert on video game music, which seems to be the correct sub-genre for this artist. I would appreciate your insights.

I may have stumbled upon a WP:WALLEDGARDEN with regards to this singer, and would like a check from experienced editors in the genre. The article on Shimamiya herself is sources to a music school's webpage where she is apparently a teacher, a blog, her Twitter, the webpage of her production group, and Anime New Network. Overall, not an inspiring bunch of sources, and ones that raise WP:RS concerns. The articles on elements of her discography are even worse, being unsourced or sourced to a single database track/personnel listing. There are no significant links in to these article from outside the garden (i.e., from a single to an album or and album to a single to the artist). Attempting to satisfy WP:BEFORE on these articles is not showing anything significant in English sources or searchable using the transliterated titles. Out of an abundance of caution, before being so deletionist as to mass-nominate her discography, I am bringing the matter here for (hopefully) expert insight. Thank you in advance. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 15:45, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

@Eggishorn: She doesn't seem to be connected to the video game industry, as I've never heard of her. I'd just bring this up to AfD if I were you, as I don't see any good reliable sources (preferable in English) on her. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 00:10, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
@Dissident93:, thanks for the assistance. I'll probably multi-Afd her and the recordings together later. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 00:33, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
I've nominated the artist, and am waiting to see how that goes before deciding what to do with the discography. Your input there would be helpful, I'm sure. Thanks again. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 16:12, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Vandalism is promising[edit]

Kirk Cousins' page has by far been the most vandalized this off-season, which strikes me as odd because there are lots of more "deserving" targets. But I guess that's the price of being a successful quarterback playing in the nation's capital. I think the skins are on the brink; they just need to find this generation's John Riggins to carry them over. Lizard (talk) 17:27, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

He's been in the spotlight for the last few months, and will continue to be until he signs a long-term deal with a team. Also, the Redskins having one of the league's worse defensive units/coaching staff for the last five or six seasons is the real reason holding them back. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 23:44, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
As a Saints fan, I can empathize with the defensive struggles. Lizard (talk) 03:45, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Comment regarding Nintendo Switch game releases...[edit]

I was editing the Nintendo Switch games list, and what I noticed is that you are reverting some edits were are deemed correct in sorting. One of them is using this: 2017|04 instead of this April 2017, hence why when sorting, it doesn't appear correctly. So will you take a look at the other game pages like the PlayStation 4 list and take some time to look through and see the difference why this needs to be made?

Wow, sorry to be late to the party, but I just now saw this edit. (I don't have it on my watchlist and I didn't even realize that your changes weren't in my initial template design.)

Anyways, just wanted to thank you for that, I appreciate it. Also, I don't know if you ever ended up using the template or not, but you're welcome to it if you ever want to. (Not that I could stop you, honestly, but still, I find it helpful, and it'd be great if others found it useful too.)

Also, thanks to Lordtobi as well - I see you also tweaked it at one point as well. Thanks. Sergecross73 msg me 17:13, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Nintendo Portal "In the news" section[edit]

The "In the news" section is vastly, vastly barren. If you look at other portals, their News sections are updated frequently, such as Sega's portal. As Nintendo is the largest video games company of the world, their Portal should reflect that, and updating the News section every six months isn't very akin to that.

We can keep it the way it is, or, we could;

  • Have console, major video game releases there (such as big blockbusters like Zelda and 1-2-Switch)


  • Have the News section like the Sega portal's; with mini-sections for upcoming games and released games, and we could add a 'Other News' section to report other major news, like the change of CEOs.

If there's no visible reply until the 20th, I'll revert the changes you made. No hard feelings. You can reply to me here, on my talk page, or on the Nintendo portal talk page.

Thanks for reading, and with much love

The King of Prosecutors (talk) 00:43, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

  • @Manfred von Karma: The portal should be used for major company wide milestones, and not game releases (which we would just add to every few weeks). I fail to see how 1-2-Switch's release is more important than the death of the President, which caused a major reshuffling of their internal divisions and staff. The launch of the Switch is enough, and handles that anyway. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 22:50, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Dissident93: I see what you mean, but the death of Iwata (rest in peace) happened two years ago, in 2015. Doesn't really reflect a 'current event', as the name of the section suggests. This is why I want some more items in there, but I see what you mean by games being insignificant. As I said before, the death of Satoru Iwata happened two years ago, so yeah, I'd say that 1-2-Switch and Zelda are more of a current event than Iwata's death. Also, I'm talking about adding Nintendo-published games, which, from Wii U standards, are only every two months or so. I just don't think it's a great look to a new user of the Nintendo portal to see that news from 2015 is still there; they'd think the portal is inactive or something. That's how it was when I came. The King of Prosecutors (talk) 00:40, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
      • @Manfred von Karma: I know, but we shouldn't be adding games to the list unless they did something major, like win multiple game of the year awards (as Zelda might), or be in the news for major controversy (like the Hot Coffee mod or something). If you really want to add a recent list of games, then it should be anothe separate portal, which I'd be fine with. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 15:00, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Dissident93: There should be, like, a seperate section on the portal front page, not an entirely different portal as you said. But I agree with you.

The King of Prosecutors (talk) 05:31, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

    • @Manfred von Karma: Well that's what I meant. Don't have an issue with a list of first-party Nintendo games being listed in a portal, just keep it separate from the main one. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 19:06, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Dissident93: Thanks for the tips! The portal looks much better now, and seems more active to those who click it! :)

Sonic Forces Image[edit]

If you look at the transparent image from Deviantart, you will see that the "R" is a different style. Not to mention I follow the user on twitter who made the image.

@Hellknowz: Honestly, it depends. Something like amiibo being lower case should be mentioned, but a game just in all caps due to the font used, I don't think we should include that in the lead.

Square EA[edit]

Hello there. First , I come in peace and I don't want to start an editing war. Second, regarding your reverts of my edits to both Kingdom Hearts (video game) and Xenogears, Square EA actually was a thing between April 1998 to March 2003 before the Square Enix merger. The front of the boxes do have the SQUARESOFT logo, but back of box, opening of game and in-game credits say Square Electronic Arts L.L.C. was the publisher. You also can simply Google it if you like. Zidane4028 (talk) 05:52, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Fair enough, though I own the games and do not remember ever seeing them credited as the publisher. ~ Dissident93 (talk)
They should be credited as such in the games. The words "Published by Square Electronic Arts L.L.C." are literally the first thing that comes up when the game boots up proper after the system is turned on. Zidane4028 (talk) 07:07, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Are MMORPG's always considered to be open world?[edit]

Just wondering, as I've always went by that assumption, but I've started to question it recently. That's why I added The Elder Scrolls Online, I knew that it's open world anyway, and if the MMORPGs are always considered open world, then someone could easily revert it. I've been confused by this lately because sometimes, someone will add an MMORPG into the category, even though it's already in the MMORPG category.Dohvahkiin (talk) 01:47, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @Dohvahkiin: MMORPG implies that it's already open-world to an extinct. Can you think of any that aren't? ~ Dissident93 (talk) 16:30, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Both valid points. Like I said, I knew this already, it's just lately I've been doubting it because people add MMORPGs all the time.Dohvahkiin (talk) 17:02, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @MaverickWithGoose: I tried looking for a reliable source that did mention this interview, but couldn't find any with a quick google search (but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist). Try to use the sites listed at WP:VGRS for any future citations on gaming articles, to avoid any issues like this. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 18:15, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

New user help...[edit]

So, I'm kinda hoping you could possibly help with this. There's a user that's just using an IP address, and he's adding games into the open world category without citing sources. I've been checking over each one, and while some do have info on the web to back them up, most don't. Please look at his talk page, as I tried to tell him what he has to do, but I don't really think he gets it. Dohvahkiin (talk) 04:12, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

I checked each game he added to confirm whether they had info to support it or not, using the Custom Google Search Engine from the Wikipedia page on Reliable sources. The only two I found that had info to support them were Dukes of Hazzard and Way of the Samurai 3. Just wanted to inform you so that those are not removed. ThanksDohvahkiin (talk) 04:22, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

About my recent edit in List of games with Vulkan support[edit]

While I understand your confusion, it seems you didn't read my previous edit summary or compared the changes, as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive entry was commented out by me due to edit conflict I had upon updating the article - I commented it in my edit instead of removing it to discuss the matter on the talk page, originally wanting to add I'll fully remove it after reaching consensus.

Instead, you reverted my edit that had other changes and addiction in it, wrongly assuming I only re-added the entry, and split the page (see my reasoning behind it the before-mentioned talk page. I am a slow at making the edits, so it took me a while to write it in addition to huge chunk already spend on editing the article and wanted to discuss the issue seeing we had different views on the topic. I'll re-add my other changes in the meantime, as I worry they will be lost in time, just this time without the splitting and any trace of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive entry, though I encourage you to look at my comment in the talk page in the meantime.

Sonic CD[edit]

Hey, I was just going to ask you if you could help out in improving the page for Sonic the Hedgehog CD. I'm starting a conversation on the talk page there, on what needs to be improved/rewritten. ~ TheJoebro64 (talk) 23:01, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Consensus on whether Nier: Automata soundtrack releases should be included in Music of Nier article[edit]

Hello! You're invited to express your views at the relevant discussion thread. Jotamide (talk) 16:15, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

The removal of most of the NSF article.[edit]

Are there any particular reasons for it besides "unsourced" or "guide-like"? Since those are your criteria for deletion of the content, the article should be deleted outright since none of it is directly sourced. The TNS hardware section in particular could have been entirely rewritten but a deletion is absurd, especially since the website of the manufacturer themselves was linked and was the only objective reference in the entire article. Much of the information you deleted is also easily verifiable, yet for someone so on the side of sources to the point of removing 60% of the page, you failed to provide any yourself during the edits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:54, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @ The entire reasoning was because it was unsourced and too technical for the average reader. And if the only actual reference to the format was its own website, then it fails WP:NOTABILITY too. I'll nominate this at AfD, and see if others agree with you. You are welcome to provide any third-party sources in the meantime, though. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 20:06, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
    • @Dissident93: Hold on, isn't nominating for deletion a bit too much? The article could be considered valuable to an entire Internet community that is open to new faces, and if it's considered to be too technical and lacking more sources then that could be easily fixed by any willing user. To me, this all seems to be too hasty. (talk) 20:28, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
    • @Dissident93: I wasn't suggesting the article be nominated for deletion (while I agree that a lot of the info was too technical). I was saying that if the deletions were due to unsourced info, then the solution was to provide sources or edit it for brevity, not simply delete the sections entirely. It was hyperbole.

Dallas Cowboys Roster Navbox[edit]

I'll keep the template the way you want it, but don't look at me should there be a Joey Bosa situation. They are not guaranteed to ever be on the active roster. It's probably about 98% likely, but never guaranteed. RevanFan (talk) 05:53, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @RevanFan: Can you name the last first rounder who didn't sign with the team at all? Teams are already assigning them jersey numbers, and many of them are listed in the active roster on team websites, so I don't see the point of separating them unless they begin to hold out into August, which used to be case before the 2011 CBA reforms, but not anymore (outside of Bosa). ~ Dissident93 (talk) 15:44, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Yu Kanda[edit]

Greetings, I have recently nominated Yu Kanda to FAC here. A user offered to copyedit the article, but he is now a bit busy. Could you give it a look or edit if you have the time? Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 23:13, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @Tintor2: Any reason why me in particular? I have never even heard of this character or franchise before. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 23:14, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
Well, that's better since the article needs to be written so that anybody unfamiliar with the series could understand it. If you are busier with other stuff, don't worry. Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 23:16, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
  • @Tintor2: True, I suppose. I'll give it a look sometime tonight or tomorrow. At a quick glance though, it looked to be pretty well formatted. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 23:24, 3 May 2017 (UTC)


Hey there, it's been a while. Haven't seen on on FB, so was just checking how you were doing. Hope things are going well. Doommaster1994 (talk) 09:53, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Active roster templates[edit]

I see you have reverted my changes again. I've tried to engage you in discussion about this. I've given you my reasons for making the changes. You have assured me that there's a reason not to do it that way, but you haven't told me what that reason is. I will allow a period for you to return to a proper discussion; that failing, I will reinstate my changes again. If you revert again, I will take it up at WP:ANI. Colonies Chris (talk) 10:46, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @Colonies Chris: I already explained on your talk page. If you don't like the reason, that's not my problem. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 15:27, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Mario Party 2 emulated releases[edit]

Thank you for your active contributions, but instead of clicking undo on each of my emulated release date changes, would you mind simply moving the information to the correct area? This release date information, as well as citing it, are useful for discussions on rereleases and game issues (in relation to the lack of MP1 rereleases) but your actions seem to be discouraging that information being shared. BlinksTale (talk) 18:56, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @BlinksTale: Read WP:VG/DATE. Exact dates in the lead are supposed to be generalized for readability, and emulated releases do not belong in the infobox, per the documentation. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 19:58, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
    • @Dissident93: I don't disagree that the formatting has been incorrect, I am far less experienced in the particulars of Wikipedia compared to you. But simply clicking undo to my changes seems easy and no better than it is worse, especially when I am providing information the page lacks. If that information shouldn't be on the page at all, I just need that to be more clearly stated. But the page you linked makes it sound like it could fit in the development page instead. So why undo it instead of just moving that information?
        • @BlinksTale: It's allowed in the article, just not in the lead and infobox. The article doesn't even have a dev section, where the detailed info really should be going. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 23:43, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Arms (video game)[edit]

Hello, I see you have reverted my edit on Arms in good faith. I did know that similar edits to mine were reverted in the past, but no one else actually went to the talk page first. I did make a case on the talk page on 17 May 2017, except that no one gave a response. I was hoping that I could gather a consensus, but since no one disagreed (or replied at all), I decided to be bold and make the edit anyways. If you could take a look on the Arms talk page we could discuss my edit over there. Thank you! —TheAnonymousNerd (talkcontribs) 23:34, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
