Orphaned non-free media (File:Yokubasalsacompare.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Yokubasalsacompare.png.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

AFD[edit]

I'm going to have to ask you to please strike through your argument on the AFD for the Age of Booty game. To say the least, is is uncivil to say that I don't understand WP:N, let alone argue for a keep on the grounds that I don't understand it, rather than reviewing the proposed article. Lastly, three sources is not significant coverage.— dαlus Contribs 03:10, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Don't turn this into an edit war[edit]

I have left a message at User:Zappernapper's discussion page asking for clarification as to why he originally set up the SSB cat at just Ganondorf. Please wait for a response. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 17:31, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Just a comment, but how can it be possible that a redirect page fits into a category that the page it redirects too does not? Gavin (talk) 17:48, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Because Ganon is not the character's name in the Super Smash Bros. series, Ganondorf is. Simple as that. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 18:02, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
That's not really based in logic - just because Ganon does not share the name found in SSBB does not change the fact that they are. It's not like you're redirecting to a list of characters, you're putting the cat on a name redirect. Like I said, we don't put the Fictional princes on Ganondorf. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 18:14, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
We're only supposed to place the most useful categories on redirects for ease of navigation (like Category:Super Smash Bros. fighters), not trivial ones. Have you not seen WP:CAT-R? Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 18:19, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Well in particular, I don't see anything non-trivial about the SSB character category. However, if the Fictional princes category is included in Ganon, it's easier non-trivial or trivial and thus should be removed. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 18:20, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
I think you're still missing the point here. The guidelines are pretty concise on this topic, however, we could turn Ganondorf into its own page. We'd have to make it only about instances of "Ganondorf" regardless of what he is called at other times. Either that or just move Ganon to that name. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 18:30, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Ganon is not big enough to warrant a separate article, and the consensus is to use Ganon. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 18:32, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Assuming you meant "Ganondorf", why not move the article? From my knowledge, the name "Ganon" is hardly ever used anymore. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 18:56, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Ganondorf is his humanoid form, Ganon is his more common form. I can think of only one game that lacks the Ganon form, but his Ganondorf form is missing in seven games - including one released just recently. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 18:59, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Right, but what about the name? Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 19:02, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Ganon is more common. People who only played one of the older games wouldn't recognize Ganondorf's name, but people who have only played a game without Ganon would recognize Ganon from Ganondorf. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 19:04, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry but this is ridiculous- they are the same fictional character! Ganon is the person in SSB. Is the picture of Ganon in human form not the one that appears in SSB? This would be like saying King Koopa is not Bowser because of different names. Gavin (talk) 19:08, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

There is precedent with Zelda that both forms be given pertinent categories, even if one is a redirect. As Ganon in pig form also appears in SSBB, it should be acceptable to list him as a fighter. Any other applicable categories should be copied over too. I believe, though, that Ganon in pig form is called the "emperor of darkness" at some point or another.Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 19:32, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
  1. Ganondorf uses magic, as does Ganon
  2. King Daphnes calls Ganon the dark emperor, while depicting Ganondorf. Should this count for both, just Ganondorf, or what?
  3. Both call themselves either Gerudo King or Evil King
  4. As far as I can find, only LoZ Ganon was called "Prince of Darkness"
  5. Neither Ganon nor Ganondorf seems to qualify as a warlord - he either has a heriditary monarchy, a divine mandate (self-given, of course), or militarily took the crown and installed himself as the new king (which is valid). The definitions of warlord given are not one who wages war to take control, but someone who is in control due to military, not governmental or monarchical power, such as a Shogun. Ganon has always been called a king, and does not qualify. Neither does Ganondorf.
  6. Both are clearly bosses, as well.

I've changed the categories to reflect this. If discussion continues on the other talk pages, please just quote this comment. If you agree with it, I guess.Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 19:41, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

I have initiated a thread at Wikipedia talk:Categorizing redirects concerning something in this matter. ‎Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 19:58, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
i'll leave this up to the regular editors at that wiki guideline, b/c i have a strong feeling they'll agree with me. CAT-RD is pretty clear on this - they're the same characters, but someone looking at Category:Super Smash Bros. fighters could be confused by seeing Ganon instead of Ganondorf, so we place the cat on the redirect page to aid in navigation. We have two guidelines at work here - WP:CAT-RD and the spirit of least astonishment. -ΖαππερΝαππερ BabelAlexandria 04:42, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Mother 3[edit]

Substantively, I don't know much about the game, so I'm not sure how I could help. I merged some material back into the article to avoid deletion. Bearian (talk) 19:00, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

VGChartz[edit]

I believe that VGChartz are only reliable when it comes to the charts. Therefore, data gleaned from these charts should be allowed (such as on Advance Wars: Dual Strike). Per Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2008-06-26/Dispatches and WP:RS, the "About Us" section of VGChartz.com should show that this data is reliable. They use "a growing team of analysts, over ten years of experience and with over twenty years of historical data." I would appreciate if you could undo your removal of this source from Advance Wars: Dual Strike. Thanks. NOCTURNENOIR ( t • c ) 21:14, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Can you link me to that discussion please? NOCTURNENOIR ( t • c ) 21:33, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm looking for new sources now. NOCTURNENOIR ( t • c ) 21:40, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
I can't find a reliable source... You wouldn't happen to know where I could find an archive of the NPD charts, would you? I had a forum claiming NPD saw AW:DS have around 40k sales in August, but obviously a forum isn't a reliable source... NOCTURNENOIR ( t • c ) 22:08, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
I actually have a big ol' lists of DS LTDs, but I can't use any of it without a reliable source to back it up. For reference, NPD sales are 262.000 by Dec. 07. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 22:11, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Eh, whatever then... Such information isn't essential to the article, so I'll just leave it be... Time to source the rest of this sucker and get it to WP:GA! NOCTURNENOIR ( t • c ) 22:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, that ought to be fairly easy! Don't need too much sales info - it's generally accepted that it's hard to come by in North America, after all. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 22:21, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Art Style games[edit]

I see you're making a article for every Art Style game. I believe we should have an image in the infobox just like you put in Art Style: ORBIENT. The purpose of those image is to indentify the articles better. Versus22 talk 05:53, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Merger with Metalocalypse Wikiproject[edit]

Hello!

I approve of a merger between the Metalocalypse Wikiproject and the Adult Swim section of the CN Wikiproject, as long as it shows up somewhere that my main focus (and I am assuming the other members of the Wikiproject) is Metalocalypse. Since it seems that membership has become stagnant and due to a lack of recent updating of articles relevant to the project (I know I haven't due to other obligations), perhaps it would be for the best of the Metalocalypse-related projects that they were in the domain of a larger group of users. With that being said, I am going to put a moratorium on the project, give the other members at the most a week to second the merger, and will transfer the current member list and other relevant information to the Adult Swim section. TTYL!

List of space flight simualtor games debate[edit]

Hello my fellow list creating friend who I have never met or spoken to in my whole life. Over the past year I created the List of space flight simulator games on Wikipedia. A person named SharkD and I engaged in an edit war because he changed the name of the page and then sorted it to the Chronological list of space flight simulator games, when a good portion of the games on the list have multiple release days. An administrator got involved and to my suprise kinda sided with me and we began the discussion in Wikiproject Video games. The reason why I am messageing you is that I seek advice. If you can post your advice on the Wikiproject Video Games Talk area here that would be very much appreciated. Wether ya agree with me or not I think the discussion could sure use some comments from a guy who has done a whole heck of a lot more lists than I have, thanks again! --Kirihari (talk) 03:31, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Mother 3 (2)[edit]

Sure, it could use a "recurring elements" section since all the series games are alike in many ways. That could include recurring characters like Porky, Dr Andonuts and Mr. Saturns (which are already there).--ZXCVBNM [TALK] 07:15, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

And Dr. Andonuts could have an interesting section, what with the whole thing about people mistaking the old man from Contact when it first showed up (to the point where this was acknowledged in a preview of Contact by 1UP.com). I imagine we'd also have to include the Starmen and Magicant into EarthBound (series). - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 07:19, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Mother 3 (3)[edit]

I don't see a discussion. But whatever, I still think it's unnecessary to split off the article and diminish the content that exists there already. The article isn't big enough, or with such a large variety of references that it needs a subpage. As is, it might be a good idea to get a peer review and see if there's anything that needs to be fixed.--ZXCVBNM [TALK] 17:27, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Heh, we don't use the kilobyte system anymore - since the majority of internet users now have broadband, page size usually isn't an issue unless it's REALLY long and detracts from the rest of the article. As for the peer review...I'll see what I can do.--ZXCVBNM [TALK] 17:44, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm about two weeks late getting back to you on this; my computer took died and there was trouble getting the new part.

I looked into it but as far as I can find, Adeline Software was the only developer. That's at least what the GameSpy and IGN reviews listed -- the game box doesn't constitute a reliable source. Quite frankly, there isn't that much coverage about this game outside the IGN previews and the GameSpy review, but I'll see what I can find in the next couple of days... but if I can't find any information about another company being involved, such as DSI, I'll have to omit it from the article. -- Nomader (Talk) 22:26, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

It really isn't worth it. You aren't going to convince anyone else watching that you are more right, and you aren't going to convince him that he is wrong. he's just going to cycle through statements until you get upset enough to say something intemperate, then he'll hang on to that diff forever and bring it up whenever you have a related disagreement as proof that you aren't arguing in good faith.

characters in Hollyoakes[edit]

You have recently prodded a number of apparently long-running characters from Hollyoakes. I would not myself say that every character in this immense series is worth an article but a/the major long running characters probably are--I would not give up on finding references until you had searched both the print and online material and reviews. But even if they are not the long-running characters are appropriate for a place in a combination article. Not the bare mentions of their name in the List of past characters from Hollyoaks, but 2 o 3 paragraph descriptions of the role in the various plot lines. If you know the series, you;d be a good choice for doing this. I want to point out the virtues of such articles: most people will support them. They preserve not destroy information, and sure you want do that? They serve to compromise what will otherwise be a battle continuing indefinitely. Decisions on individual articles are likely to be inconsistent and random. Individual pieces of content in combination articles do not need to show individual notability. And personally, I will not object to non-destructive merges--I will even support them against opposition & help you meet objections. I want to see a rational solution, which will not be found by trying to wear each other out. DGG (talk) 05:53, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi there. I saw that you split Death of Heath Ledger out from Heath Ledger. However, you did not note in it the place from which you had copied the content. This violates the GFDL.

Braindead: Dead Alive DVD picture[edit]

I disagree with your assessment of my including a picture of the US DVD cover of Braindead/Dead Alive in the Braindead (film) article. The intention of the picture within the article is neither unnecessary nor is it "slanting" the article toward US readers. One of the purposes of any picture to be placed on a Wikipedia page is that the subject of discussion can be easily identified for the reader. My including the picture of the Dead Alive DVD cover is meant to help American users to know that they are on the page they intended to find. But it does not slant the article. If I included a US poster for Dead Alive in the infobox, when the film is clearly a New Zealand film originally titled Braindead, that would irrefutably be a slant on the article for US readers. But by adding an unobtrusive, small thumbnailed picture of the retitled video for North American audiences this is not a slant. It merely assists American and Canadian users in identifying the subject.

Also, I find issue with your argument "if the situation were reversed, we would not see an Aussie cover." That is absolutely unture: If a film, released in America first under one title, were rereleased in New Zealand or Australia, the UK, or any other major English speaking, film producing country then absolutely we should see a thumbnail added for that change in title (as long as the main infobox reflects the title of origin). The reason for this is the same as I mentioned above. English speaking Wikipeida users, no matter what their country, will benefit in their search for a subject with the inclusion of a picture of the release in their country's version of the poster or video package. I have also included this argument in the discussion page for the article in question. Danleary25 (talk) 04:56, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Why, New Age Retro Hippie, why? Why remove all the Rumble Pak lists? Why? -Sesu Prime (talk) 06:09, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Civilization II[edit]

Hello! Perhaps it would be beneficial to discuss an issue on a talk page before making such a major edit to an article, as you recently did with Civilization II. Offhand, I see no reason why this information should have been deleted, and, as you provided no justification or opinions on the issue at all, I have no idea what your reasons were. --Ericdn (talk) 21:17, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

EU and PAL[edit]

Hello New Age Retro Hippie, I noticed that you changed "EU" to "PAL" in the infobox of the article Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. Couldn't that make people think that the game was also released in Australia and New Zealand, which are part of the PAL region? As far as I know, the game wasn't released there. And even if it was, the release dates for Europe and Australasia are often different. --Grandy02 (talk) 18:46, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

i would first like to point out that there are many people out there who use Wikipedia for information about HM games. you completely slaughtered EVERY HM page there was leaving each with just a simple paragraph or two that no one will read anyway. the list of characters, animals, etc. have been a part of the page for years. (i know i've been an HM fan for years). and many people were very offended when you blatently disregarded and deleted pretty much all information on all pages that many people find useful. so if you would, stop deleting USEFUL information that obviously belongs in an encyclopedia.

Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Psycomunkeh (talkcontribs) 22:12, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

BarnstarCVG.png The VG Barnstar
For your excellent work on the real-life aspects of video game topics. Such topics are arguably more encyclopedic than the average video game article, and have been generally underdeveloped. Just wanted to let you know that your efforts do not go unnoticed and are greatly appreciated. Keep up the good work. (Guyinblack25 talk 15:19, 13 March 2009 (UTC))

For the Record[edit]

it was not just a list when you first deleted it. there was information on each character. especially in the RFF section that had lots. and yes, lists of animals in the game are helpful. readers still want to know what animals are new and which old ones are still there. and people who know nothing about it and have never played the game that look at the page would still like to have a list of characters. PLUS players still check and read the page too. so you can keep deleting valuable info (you KILLED every bit of info for both EAM and RFF and should be ashamed in yourself) while I who actually care about readers will keep adding it back like it has been for the past 5 or 6 years. get over it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Psycomunkeh (talkcontribs) 22:01, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Pong Toss! Frat Party Games[edit]

Hey New Age Hippie. I'm sorry for what I said on your peer review. In fact I'm helping with the article by working on the Reception and fixing the references. Hope you'll like the help. GamerPro64 (talk) 23:50, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

RE:[edit]

the characters and animals are important simply because theyre what people want to know. if someone is thinking of buying this game two big things theyre going to look at are characters and animals. characters simply because its everyones favorite part of the game and animals because with EAM that is the central idea. it has focused a lot around the animals. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Psycomunkeh (talkcontribs) 16:55, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

RE:[edit]

no. but what i can tell you is that everything in that buyer's guide is what people want to know. they need more info than, "This is another HM game" and "It's release date is this." they want to know about what's different, how to play, who's in it, all that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Psycomunkeh (talkcontribs) 21:12, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

yes by "they" i mean the uninformed. and yes wikipedia should include all information like that. it is supposed to be an encyclopedia. if you have ever taken a look at an encyclopedia it does in fact include all information. Wikipedia is supposed to be one simple source that anyone, informed or uninformed can go to in order to obtain all information instead of checking scattered sites about the web. for as long as i have played HM games wikipedia has included all the information you deleted. when i first saw that the EAM page was like that, i immediately thought that it looked like it was a barron page and it looked like we knew nothing about the game. as a person who you are describing that doesnt play, if they saw what YOU turned the page into they would think exactly that. that it is a new, unknown game we know nothing about. and thats not the idea of Wikipedia. the idea is to have all information and all knowledge included.

if you're really that opposed feel free to keep deleting the info. i'll just keep adding it right back because it is what the reader's want. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Psycomunkeh (talkcontribs) 23:28, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

RE:[edit]

i would be more prone to follow your requests if i had respect for you. the fact of the matter is that characters do not make an article a walkthrough. its a listing of characters in the game. a walkthrough would be if i started listing birthdates, likes, dislikes, where they're found, how to woo them, what their heart events are. but no. its a simple list of characters with a short snipet of description. that is the main reason people go to Wikipedia and search HM. so therefore i'm keeping it. i'm a stubborn person. and no matter how many times you delete it, no matter how many people who would agree with you (which wouldn't compare with the people who would agree with me) its going to stay. i can keep adding it back even if you keep deleting it. and nothing you say or do will change that. that information stays. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Psycomunkeh (talkcontribs) 02:13, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Ungh, enough of this batting around. You guys have got to take this to the article talkpage as neither of you will convince the other that what you're doing is right and could end up descending into a two-man editwar of wildly lame proportions. This requires a much bigger consensus for or against inclusion of the deleted content so bring it up on the article talkpage and hash it out there with other editors. I'm far from picking sides on this, just a neutral party watching a content dispute being discussed in the wrong places. treelo radda 02:33, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I have started a discussion at Talk:2007 in Iraq that I thought you might want to weigh in on. Thanks --jhanCRUSH 00:59, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Condense template[edit]

Per your comment on Rune Factory 2, what about if you use {{condense|section}} it reads at the start "This section may be divided into too many small sub-sections considering its overall length and importance." Most of the time the sub-sections are 1 paragraph or less when this would be applied which normally get merged.じんない 01:10, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:UtsusuMadeinWario1.PNG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:UtsusuMadeinWario1.PNG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:51, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

PK Hack[edit]

Do you think PK Hack deserves its own article or to be in the EarthBound article? I think it deserves some mention, but I'm not sure where or how much. Thanks. Belasted (talk) 04:13, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Category:5th Cell[edit]

I notice that this category you created is unpopulated (empty). In other words, no Wikipedia pages belong to it. If it remains unpopulated for four days, it may be deleted, without discussion, in accordance with Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#C1. I'm notifying you in case you wish to (re-)populate it by adding [[Category:5th Cell]] to articles/subcategories that belong in it.

I blanked the category page. This will not, in itself, cause the category to be deleted. It serves to document (in the page history) that the category was empty at the time of blanking and also to alert other watchers that the category is in jeopardy. You are welcome to revert the blanking if you wish. However, doing so will not prevent deletion if the category remains empty.

If you created the category in error, or it is no longer needed, you can speed up the deletion process by tagging it with {{db-author}}.

I am a human being, not a bot, so you can contact me if you have questions about this. Best regards, --Stepheng3 (talk) 17:40, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello![edit]

I see you doing lots of work on video game articles, so I thought you might be a good person to ask for an opinion here! I'm looking to merge List of Super Nintendo Entertainment System emulators and then probably List of Nintendo Entertainment System emulators into List of video game console emulators, but I want to get a few peoples' opinions first. Thanks in advance for any input.  :) Lychosis T/C 12:30, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
