List of commercial failures in video gaming[edit]

So I was reading your WP:VG interview and decided to submit one of the articles you mentioned to reddit. It caused quite the traffic increase. JACOPLANE • 2011-04-7 21:17

Here are some sources that may or may not be in the article right now. I'm on a Wikibreak so I won't be able to put them to prose.

User page[edit]

  • Want the redlink back? — Chris Woodrich (talk) 02:20, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
    • As much as I would like to become "The Red User" again, I think I'm good with it being a redirect to my talk page. I might want to run for admin again and the lack of a user page might be brought up again. Besides, as long as no one tells me to change my signature we might all get along. GamerPro64 02:28, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
      • That's one way of looking at it. Sigh. I do hate the number of prejudices people have on this site. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 02:39, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
        • Eh. We'll see what happens with the next RfA, which looks to be happening pretty soon. GamerPro64 02:51, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Hey Crisco. Do you know how to withdraw an RfA? GamerPro64 00:55, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion contested: Draft:Pokemon Mega Evolution[edit]

Hello GamerPro64. I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of Draft:Pokemon Mega Evolution, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: speedy criteria not applicable, due to the lack of an AfC template and it's not in AfC either. Thank you. Armbrust The Homunculus 13:10, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

I've been getting mixed messages about this process. On one side I'm told this. But when I do take it to MfD, I get chastized for not putting it up for speedy deletion. Where do I even go to bring this tedious issue up? GamerPro64 14:22, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
I think WP:MFD is the right place if you want that page to be deleted. Armbrust The Homunculus 15:30, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
I mean where do I go to file a complaint by the fact that I'm usually in a catch 22 on this? If I nominate stuff like this for speedy deletion, it gets removed and am told to take it to MfD. If I do take it to MfD, I'm told I should've nominated it for Speedy Deletion. I'm tired of these mixed messages. GamerPro64 16:07, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Stale non-AfC drafts seem to be a bit of an odd topic to deal with, because almost nobody comments on them at MfD. A few months ago I tried to create a WP:DRAFTPROD system that would deal with them but it faced strong opposition. By current consensus all stale drafts that aren't AfC tagged have to go through MfD. Where have you been hearing that they should be speedied? Bosstopher (talk) 10:47, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

RfA nomination[edit]

  • I sued for peace on the RFA page(s) in the aftermath of a failed rfa I filed for a friend a few months back. One of the terms under the peace agreed to is that I remain off the RFA page(s); however, I wanted to let you know that you still have my Strong Support. Good luck! TomStar81 (Talk) 04:36, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @Winner 42: I just realized doing another RfA was a mistake. I would like it withdrawn. GamerPro64 00:47, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
    • I'm hesitate because you never know, it might pull around. I stand by my nomination, of course withdrawing is entirely your decision and I'll accept whatever you choose. Winner 42 Talk to me! 01:01, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
      • You honestly think this is going to turn around? GamerPro64 02:10, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
        • Probably not, sorry, but stranger things have happened (I expected Rich Farmbrough's RfA to snow fail, not go to crat chat). Feel free to withdraw if you would like to, I'm sorry that this RfA didn't go as planned. Winner 42 Talk to me! 02:33, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Arb report[edit]

Hi Gamer, I noticed you said on the NAN talk page you have been paying "hyper attention" to ArbCom this year, and also know you have no formal affiliation with the committee. Would you have any interest in joining a team of rotating writers for the Signpost's arbitration report? We have one writer already on board, and would like a team of at least three to help share the workload. If you would have any interest, do let me know. Go Phightins! 02:10, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Must say, Phightins. I have always been interested in writing for the Signpost. And I do know how to do writing for the newsletters here, being one-third of the Video Game Newsletter. I am interested in helping with the work in any way for the reports. Can certainly do so after August 1st if that works. GamerPro64 02:22, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Awesome!!! That is great news, so great, I am going to ping Gamaliel as well. We will be in touch to coordinate the details shortly. Thanks! Go Phightins! 02:34, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
