Ouya[edit]

I'll support sensible inclusions where they are relevant. There was ongoing discussion around if OUYA even counts as 8th gen on the talk page and the page was even protected for a while last week as that exact user was just relentlessly adding the same paragraph. Theres a very grey area right now as to if OUYA is deserving of an 8th gen inclusion when there are other Android devices currently available offering 99% of what it does.

Let me know what changes you propose and where and I'll do my best to help!Adycarter (talk) 09:07, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

I've replied on your talk page. -Kai445 (talk) 17:22, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you changed my sources for the 2 new games I added to the OUYA List of Software via OUYAForum.com. These were the original sources for the games, directly from the games' publishers. You changed my sources to game pages on facebook and steam that were not the correct cited source. Please do not continue to do this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.101.9.12 (talk) 14:23, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

The sources I changed them to are direct from each publisher. Direct sources are clearly and infinitely more useful than indirect sources, and I will revert you infinity plus one times if you change it back. -Kai445 (talk) 23:54, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Similar ideas[edit]

Hi there. I mussed about in my sandbox doing the exact same thing you did! I suppose great minds think alike. I came across yours via the Ouya console image page. I'll be borrowing some stuff from yours to add to mine! I did remove some things from the Wii U's side (the user interface portion was just too bloated) but I'd say you probably did the better version! Hopefully we'll see Ouya make it onto the actual page sooner than later. -Atomic Religione

Hah! I love it. 3DTV 'ought to be supported as the Android version they are using (ICS) and the hardware (Tegra3) support it, I linked a reference. Also found out that the T33 is confirmed as the Tegra3 model used (as per Julie). -Kai445 (talk) 03:20, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Consensus and WP:FLAT[edit]

FYI, WP:FLAT doesn't give you the right to go directly against consensus. Especially since it's just an essay, not policy. If you find new information for your viewpoint, great, bring it to the discussion page. But you can't use it as a rationale for doing whatever you want and going directly against a consensus you're clearly aware of. Please discuss further on the 8th gen page. Thanks.

Envisions[edit]

FYI, looks like the main contributor to the Envizions article, undid your changes done here at Envizions. It might be worth bringing to AFD, I agree with you, I don't think it's a notable company... Sergecross73 msg me 18:55, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. Will bring to AfD. -Kai445 (talk) 02:55, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Not sure if you noticed yet or not, but an Admin closed it as a redirect, even though all three people who commented were against a redirect. I asked the closing admin about it, and am awaiting response, FYI. Sergecross73 msg me 18:27, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
Nevermind, he quickly agreed with me and switched it too delete. Sergecross73 msg me 18:49, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
Good catch. Glad to see it was straightened out. I removed wikilinks to Envizions on respective articles. -Kai445 (talk) 18:59, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria policy[edit]

Please do not place or replace any non-free images to any pages except for actual articles, such as you did at User:Kai445/History of video game consoles (eighth generation). Such a use is in clear violation of point number 9 of the policy governing the use of non-free images. Continuing to do so can be viewed as disruptive behaviour and you may be blocked from editing. VernoWhitney (talk) 19:54, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Understood. I thought it was weird someone edited my userspace and just reverted without thinking about it. -Kai445 (talk) 01:09, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough; it's not a part of the policy that comes up terribly often. If it's going to be a while before the actual article is updated the non-free image can always be restored at that time. Cheers. VernoWhitney (talk) 05:01, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to Pit bull does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Just saying "rollback" fail to explain whether you have an appropriate rationale for your edit, and none is apparent. Epeefleche (talk) 01:11, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you remove or blank page content or templates from Wikipedia, as you did at Pit bull, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. You've provided no reasonable explanation for your edits, which include deletion of RS-supported text, etc. Epeefleche (talk) 02:56, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Oh, are you going to block me yourself? Because I don't see you on the List of administrators, so don't make idle threats. I just left a message on your talkpage. If you'd like I can leave warning templates there too. Maybe a don't be a dick template, I'm sure there's one around somewhere. -Kai445 (talk) 03:01, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
It is not an idle threat. Please stop deleting/reverting material with zero reason, as you did. Or non-reasonable explanations. Many thanks.--Epeefleche (talk) 03:04, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

NJ Universities[edit]

OK. If you get to the front page of the NJ site, it includes universities. If you click through to the next page, it doesn't. If you really care that much, I'll leave it alone, even though it is incorrect. I just don't care that much. StevenJ81 (talk) 19:15, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

History of video game consoles (eighth generation)[edit]

Regarding the TechPowerUp article: before I deleted non sourced content from History of video game consoles (eighth generation) article, the Wii U's TechPowerUp article was listing the its memory as GDDR5 and the bandwidth as approximately @ 20 GHz/s. As you've seen, there's been a speedy edit, whether it was reported after my edits or not, I don't know. But the fact is that the reliability of this source is now being put into question. Before I make a section in Talk:History of video game consoles (eighth generation), I'd like to know what are your thoughts on this. Thank you.--Arkhandar (talk) 00:03, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

I've replied on your talkpage. -Kai445 (talk) 01:16, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I've checked again and everything seems to be in order. The only reason I've put the reliability into question is because they changed the memory info in a matter of minutes I believe, between my edit and yours to the History of video game consoles (eighth generation) article. And yes, the eDRAM bandwidth numbers put the Wii U in good position but that is far from what my goal is on Wikipedia. I just want everything listed to be the truth, be it the Wii U, PS4 or Xbox One. Thank you.--Arkhandar (talk) 13:37, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Rutgers University vs Rutgers New Bruswick[edit]

There are infobox templates for a unified university system, but there are also templates established for each campus. Be careful how you edit templates. The Scarlet Knights sports teams are only associated wiith New Brunswick/Piscataway. Camden and Newark have their own teams, not the Scarlet Knights. Same with Arts and Sciences, only New Brunswick/Piscataway, not Camden or Newark.......Any questions, lets have a discussion......Pvmoutside (talk) 23:36, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Are you even a Rutgers student? Rutgers is one university. The article in question was originally "Athletics at Rutgers University", and as such, still have sections from Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-Camden in the page. There is also no such thing as the "New-Brunswick/Piscataway" campus. There are five residential campuses of the New Brunswick campus, of which "Piscataway" is not one (Livingston, Busch, College Ave, Cook, Douglass...). -Kai445 (talk) 23:40, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
I realize Rutgers has a structure that is somewhat unified looking at all the information available regarding the campuses. I do know they are somewhat distinct in they do have separate chancellors, and I do know the sports teams are different. I also know the current template structure allows more links to be added if the campuses are split template wise. I thought the current structure allows for enough unification, but enough distintinguishing characteristics. I don't have to be a Rutgers student or alum to read the info available on the Rutgers website. I'm trying to be helpful defining the structure a little better. Your way assumes that the entire Rutgers system follows the Scarlet Knights which does not occur according to Rutgers own web site. Rutgers own website lists regional campuses of New Brunswick, Camden, and Newark. I'm not trying to cause issues, just a little better clarity. Of course, I could be wrong, but tell me why?.....Pvmoutside (talk) 23:55, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
I also looked at the page "Athletics at Rutgers University" and it has always been a redirect to "Rutgers Scarlet Knights". I have no problem if you want to create an article on sports for the entire University system, but that's not how it reads now.......Pvmoutside (talk) 00:04, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
All Rutgers students, regardless of campus, can buy student season tickets for all Scarlet Knights games. And splitting things up is problematic, for example Rutgers Business School spans two campuses (Newark and New Brunswick) and shares a unified curriculum and professors teach on both campuses, often on the same day (literally teach in the morning at New Brunswick and then drive to Newark to teach in the evening) or on alternating days. Rutgers Law is going to be merged as of Fall 2015, and share a unified curriculum and admissions (Camden and Newark). I was contemplating starting a "Rutgers Law" page (maybe in sandbox) in anticipation. Also, I got EC'd like twice so far, so annoying, lol. -Kai445 (talk) 00:05, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Additionally... All three campuses use unified RUID (student ID) numbers and ID cards. They share centralized authentication and computing services (NetID, CAS SSO, RUWireless), New Brunswick and Newark both have Rutgers Campus Buses, New Brunswick and Camden both utilize the same RUExpress (prepaid $ on ID cards) system, parking permits are cross-honored between campuses (e.g. Newark Prepaid can park in New Brunswick on Livingston before 6pm and on any commuter lot after 6pm, New Brunswick can be used for a RUN-Pass discount at Newark Deck 1). Faculty are considered "Rutgers" employees, not "Rutgers (campus xyz)" employees. Perhaps most importantly, diplomas awarded don't distinguish between campuses, they all say "Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey". -Kai445 (talk) 00:15, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Also, when the article was moved (in 2007), the page history went with it, so the original title would appear to only have ever been a redirect. -Kai445 (talk) 00:18, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
But Newark does have the Scarlet Raiders and Camden has the Scarlet Raptors...That's why I left the Business School on the university page, and provided links to it on both the Newark and New Brunswick infoboxes. The structure that is in place now doesn't state they are separate universities, just separate regional campuses, which they are....I'll have no problem with you editing the Rutgers Law School page, I know administrators change things all the time!....Go at it! But try to be sensitive to the non-flagship regional campuses....Holler if you want my opinion.....Pvmoutside (talk) 00:30, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your efforts to understand the campus and Rutgers. It is kind of a unique system. Rutgers has only ever been moving towards integration, not separation, and students university-wide all share the same pride for RU :). Believe me, I'm not trying to walk over any campus, on the contrary, my goal is to integrate the Rutgers articles together. (And the entire University is the Flagship, not any particular campus, although current president Barchi has been trying to make moves to make it seem that way... but all of the campuses are part of the AAU.) -Kai445 (talk) 02:05, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem. I realize it is one university, but as you recognize it is a bit of a hybrid. In Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2014 September 21 Staticshakedown recognizes the information in the campus template, and notes the large size of the current Rutgers template. Perhaps the suggestion of using collapsible templates for the campuses makes a worthwhile compromise. Perhaps we can all work together to get that done....Pvmoutside (talk) 13:03, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Agreed, a collapsible template would be acceptable to me. -Kai445 (talk) 14:23, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Same here, and I'm busy with work now......I'm sure it will all get worked out soon between all of us.....Pvmoutside (talk) 21:56, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
