Playstation[edit]

Hi! I removed the bit you put in the PS3 article, but not because I think it is bad info or anything. I just don't think the lead is the best place for it. It is an FA so I think we should be extra careful what we add and where. While it is certainly verifiable some may say that we don't need to add these kinds of reviews at all as we will then have to choose who gets their review in and who dosent. IGN is pretty big though so I think it would make the cut. Maybe in the "Reception" section? Colincbn (talk) 03:03, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Cool, I'll put it there.

Re: Senator map[edit]

Hi MAINEiac4434, thanks for your note. I already updated Wisconsin earlier and in Connecticut Dodd was replaced with Blumenthal, who has stated support for SSM, so no need to adjust the map there. Best wishes Hekerui (talk) 00:19, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

IGN top 25[edit]

Hi. I have reverted your edits to various console articles about their placing in IGN's top 25 list. This is not because the info is bad, but more the manner in which it is used. Saying that a console as Xth on the list is not really enough to be notable (it needs more discussion as to why it is the case). Also, the lead (intro bit at the top of the page) is not the place to put it - it should go in the reception (or similar) section if it goes anywhere.

As an example of what I mean, for the PS3 one you wrote "In 2009, video game website IGN called the PS3 the 15th greatest video game console of all time, behind both the original PlayStation and PlayStation 2". This doesn't tell the reader anything about the console, only that IGN preferred the PS1 & PS2 (as well as 13 other consoles) to the PS3. In order to be notable, it would really need to say why it was on the top 25 list (things like "it helped Blu-ray win the HD video war" or "it has a great line up of both first and third party games") and possibly why it wasn't higher on the list (which doesn't seem to be mentioned on the page itself, but may be on some of the higher-up entries (something along the lines of "the Xbox 360 beat its rival the PS3 because…").

Anyway, I hope it's clear what I mean.

"You were very cordial and sincere in explaining why you were removing the IGN top 25 stuff…"
Thank you, I see no reason to do otherwise Face-smile.svg.
"…but I still question it."
Fair enough, everyone entitled to opinions etc. Lets see if we can get this sorted out
"I believe it's relevant as IGN is one of, if not the, premier gaming websites out there. If IGN chose the Intellivision, I consider that important, and I believe that it deserves to be mentioned."
It is relevant, I don't dispute that, it's just that on its own (i.e. just saying "X console is Y on IGN's list") it isn't really enough to justify inclusion. The article is about the PS3 (or whatever, I'll just use that as an example for now), and as such covers more than just its popularity.
A good rule of thumb is to look at similar things that are already in the article and try to follow the same form (where appropriate). Take this paragraph from PS3 → Reception → Original Model for example (which is about criticisms):
"The PS3 was given the number-eight spot on PC World magazine’s list of "The Top 21 Tech Screwups of 2006", where it was criticized for being "Late, Expensive and Incompatible". GamesRadar ranked the PS3 as the top item in a feature on game-related PR disasters, asking how Sony managed to "take one of the most anticipated game systems of all time and — within the space of a year — turn it into a hate object reviled by the entire internet", but added that despite its problems the system has "untapped potential". Business Week summed up the general opinion by stating that it was "more impressed with what [the PlayStation 3] could do than with what it currently does"."
Each sentence points out the opinion of the publication, followed by reasons. If the reasons are not included, the entire reception section could be removed and replaced with a list of people/publications that liked it and disliked it (or something to that effect). Doing so would be a bad idea though, as would not offer any critical analysis of the PS3. The point of the page is to provide information (in this case on the strengths and weaknesses of the system), not to provide a list of those who rated it well/poorly. Also it helps to put things in perspective - if loads of publications criticise for one main point, and others praise it for many varying ones it shows a broader range of opinion (and as such is likely to be closer to community opinion at large… fanboys aside of course). Naturally, if it were part of a list of awards etc (for an example, see the table on the right of Fallout: New Vegas#Reception), its inclusion simply as-is would be OK, but such a list is not in place (mainly due to the analysis, which is almost always preferable to a plain list… that and simple lists are rarely added to console articles).
If you're still not sure about anything, you can always contact me again and discuss it further. Cheers, Alphathon /'æl.f'æ.ðɒn/ (talk) 20:34, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Plato Truman[edit]

Do you have a source for Truman running for office as a U.S. Labor Party member? I found a source which says he campaigned in 1986 as a member of "Labor for Maine", an unrelated party.   Will Beback  talk  01:57, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure there's a mix-up, so I'll go ahead and remove it. If you find a source that says Truman ran as a U.S. Labor Party (instead of Labor for Maine) member then we can add it back. 08:12, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm guessing that I just misunderstood when I saw "Labor Party" on the Maine's 1st congressional district. I apologize. MAINEiac4434 (talk) 13:52, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip - I've fixed it in that article as well. There have been a number of "labor" parties in the US over the years. It's a bit confusing.   Will Beback  talk  19:54, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:UndeadNightmareSoundtrack.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:UndeadNightmareSoundtrack.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box.

Recent edit[edit]

Your recent edit to Gil Scott-Heron was reverted, as it was cited with video links, which did not support your conclusion that the Scott-Heron composition was sampled in West's song. Whatever is being cited should be faithful to the source's content and not a conclusion based on multiple citations. The information you added was already present in the article's "Influence" section, but for future edits, try to avoid citing video links such as YouTube, as they have questionable reliability and copyright (Wikipedia:Video links). Thank you. Dan56 (talk) 01:41, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry if I explained it unclearly, but my point was not that that is the conclusion, but that you need a source that says exactly what you are saying in the text you added. We can't extrapolate, infer, or make a synthesis of the references' content; Wikipedia:No original research: "analysis or synthesis of published material that serves to advance a position not advanced by the sources". Here are some examples to understand the policy better. Your claims are correct about Scott-Heron and West's songs, but Wikipedia still requires a proper source. Also, the bit about "West named Scott-Heron, among others, as a major influence", and the following statement, "Lost in the World's featuring of Scott-Heron is subtle, while 'Who Will Survive in America' is a sample and remix of 'Comment #1'", is an unsourced claim. I've replaced the YouTube citations with more reliable sources that directly support the first statement, but for future edits, please use references that are more direct to the content added.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Pawlenty.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Pawlenty.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

LA Galaxy Badge[edit]

Please stop changing the description for the LA Galaxy Badge. The way it is listed is correct. The badge bears 1 Gold star and three silver ones. 4 (1 + 3) as it is appears for all other clubs on the list (let's keep it uniform please) the Gold star symbolizes the CONCACAF Champions League title won, and the three silver stars represent three MLS Cups one (they have won 4). The fourth star however is worn as the gold MLS shield which appears on the shirt in form of a trophy on a separate badge (similar to how it is the custom in Portugal, Italy and so forth for cup winning clubs). The fourth MLS Cup star will then be added to the badge at the end of the season, and start of the new season. I am reverting your changes, if you still deem it necessary to debate, please open a discussion on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football and we can further discuss this, otherwise I will consider this Wikipedia:Edit warring and we will have to go about this differently, thank you for understanding, and I look forward to your reply.
