SCII Collab[edit]

Just talked to User:Gary King and he said if you're up the three of us could try to reclaim the good topic by getting SCII to good/featured. NativeForeigner Talk/Contribs 05:54, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Starcraft cleanup enquiry[edit]

Hi S@bare, nice to meet you :)

I was just wondering about your removal of the additional piece of info I added to the Starcraft article:

"(which isn't always the case, however, once the game reaches its later stages)"

This part was removed with the annotation: "excessive detail".

Could you please explain to a newbie how do you decide if something is excessive or not? Are there some strict rules on that?

Thank! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Flamingo85 (talkcontribs) 03:27, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Re: TMI File:Guybrush Threepwood TMI concepts.jpg[edit]

Honestly at this point you're better off removing. The sticking point is that the prose doesn't explicitly address the issue in regards to Guybrush's character design; unless some additional text can be added to that point, I don't think Jappa's going to be satisfied, and Sandy considers him the maestro of image checking these days :) Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs(talk) 17:27, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Further Valve Task Force Action[edit]

Hey, I'm the newest member of the Valve Task Force, which you started. I took the liberty of adding Alien Swarm and Dota 2, the latter of which is Valve's newest announced game, to the page. I also updated the quality ratings to their present forms.

I did notice, however, that the Task Force has been somewhat dormant. Would it be possible to send out messages to the 23 participants about participating in the Task Force? Also, the To-Do List could use some updating, considering that there are a few new pages in the works and the rankings have shifted. DarthBotto talkcont 02:34, 06 February 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

Your incredibly hard work paid off, and Tales of Monkey Island is now Featured. Congratulations. A Monkey Island article getting to FA is definitely a WPVG milestone; I hope that the other articles in the series one day match up to the quality of this one. JimmyBlackwing 16:55, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I didn't expect that they would be, since you've been so busy lately—and since your focus has been more on Telltale. Good luck with that workload. JimmyBlackwing (talk) 18:10, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Have you played Portal 2? - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 21:12, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

My comment wasn't attitude-fueled; it was a legitimate question to make sure you played Portal 2 before I discussed it with you. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 21:48, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Disruptive editor on Carcano page.[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedia user and historical military enthusiast. Are you by any chance an administrator? I would like to report an IP address that has been making numerous disruptive edits on the Carcano rifle page. IP address 99.248.217.171 has continuously replaced the primary image (which I personally uploaded) with an image link to a forum claming that it is incorrectly formatted when clearly there is nothing wrong. In addition, on July 6, 2011 at 01:58, he deleted the entire article and replaced it with "Have fun rewriting this!" If you could assist me in this matter that would be greatly appreciated. Also if you are not an administrator, if you could perhaps get me in touch with one I would be most grateful.

Thank you kindly, Antique Military Rifles (talk) 16:26, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello again S@bre. Unfortunatley the IP address which we discussed is continuing their disruptive behavior on the Carcano page. I looked at the WP:AN/I page but I'm exactly sure on which section I should go to. If you assist me again I will be most grateful. Thank you again, Antique Military Rifles (talk) 18:44, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

The Secret of Monkey Island[edit]

Hi there Sabre! I am going to improve the article so it can be promoted to GA status and I would like you to review (I know that you are LucasArts games enthusiast, having contributed to Steve Purcell, Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max Hit the Road articles). What things the article needs in your opinion? (with the exception of Gameplay section, of course) Thank you. Electroguv (talk) 18:26, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi again! I was wondering if you could do some copyediting to Development section. I will be busy for a day with finding sources for the Special Edition and I think that some prose may need refining in that time. Thank you. Electroguv (talk) 12:31, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi there. Just wanted to say - I do already have a printed source on hands - it's Retro Gamer issue with article about Making of Monkey Island, check refs for proof. Unfortunately, there's not much info on actual development like in Sam & Max or DOT, rather graphical and technical info. Good luck in further editing! Electroguv (talk) 14:40, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
Can you help me with copyediting? I am quite busy with finding sources for the rest of the article and I would like some help on text. Thank you. Electroguv (talk) 15:52, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi there! Thanks, but I have just uploaded new version of the article. I think that one's slightly better. Electroguv (talk) 16:06, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi once again! I've uploaded another version. Please tell me if text needs some correction. Thank you. Electroguv (talk) 09:51, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi Sabre! I've done with Development and now I'm going to write Gameplay section. I can't find a sentence to begin it, may you suggest one? Thanks, Electroguv (talk) 13:13, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi, I'm quite busy with finding refs for Gameplay here and I was wondering if you could check the text in development section. Electroguv (talk) 16:28, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your help and advices. Where have you been when I, Jimmy and GiB were doing work on the article, by the way? Electroguv (talk) 10:25, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Sabre, great work on the Plot - have you ever tried to become a script doctor? :) I'll add refs for key statements, but I first would like to know your opinion on the article. Do you think it's worth nominating for GA status? Electroguv (talk)

Please, help[edit]

Request for adminstrator assistance[edit]

How are you? It has been a while, but I'm still around on Wikipedia. I tried creating a new article by copying some of the text as a basis to create an article, calledEureqa, and an admin named User:Fuhghettaboutit deleted it. Perhaps it was a fair point that the text needed to be modified, or removed, but he has refused to restore the article for me to improve. and now, he has deleted a Wikipedia Good Article unilaterally and with no consultation, Mark Twain House. I need some assistance on this issue, could you or another admin help? Thanks. In fact, I really think someone should start going through his contribution history to see if he has a record of deleting other Good Articles on very weak grounds and without any warning or communication of the issues involved, speedy deletion of articles are not for notable articles, let alone Good ones. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 02:35, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Mass Effect[edit]

Hello again. I am currently working on Development and I want to utilize the same section layout you used for Tales of Monkey Island and S&M Save the World. The only trouble is, I don't know what should go into Production subsection. Could you give me some advice? Electroguv (talk) 17:14, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

A vote for consensus on Lead in main article[edit]

I have introduced a vote for a clearer worded lead according to Wikipedia standards of WP:Readability and WP:MOS Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lead section on the main article of the Hundred Years War. The vote is located here: Talk:Hundred Years' War. Will you please look at vote as you think best? While your writing is elegant, I do not believe the wording is appropriate for a Wikipedia article where most editors do not have masters in medieval history. Please keep in mind that some of the readers are teenagers. Thank you. Mugginsx (talk) 15:01, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Sarah Kerrigan[edit]

Sarah Kerrigan, an article that you may be interested in, has been nominated for a good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the good article reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status will be removed from the article.

Timelines for Wikipedia articles[edit]

Hi, my name is Navino Evans I am the co-founder of a new UK based website called Histropedia. We are working on an ambitious project to make all of the historical content in Wikipedia available on an interactive graphical timeline, which stays synchronised with new additions and changes in Wikipedia automatically and is completely free to use. Editors will be able create timelines extremely quickly and easily by simply searching for each event and clicking on the result.

We're really hoping this site will be of great use to the Wikipedia community, which is why we are seeking feedback from editors and administrators such as yourself at this early stage. Here's an example timeline of the Hundred Years' War article, which was created in under 30 minutes using our current prototype. Hundred Years' War timeline

And here's a timeline of the computer games mentioned in your list of major contributions, which took me about 5 minutes to create. S@bre's contributions timeline

The controls are basically like Google Maps - click and drag to scroll time, zoom with the mouse wheel. You can 'open' an event by double clicking on it. More instructions are available here if needed. Please note that there are currently many events which are not available yet and some incorrect dates. Many of these will appear automatically as we update our algorithm, but full wiki style adding and editing will be available soon.

Any feedback would be very much appreciated! Many thanks, NavinoEvans (talk) 23:23, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

StarCraft Task Force[edit]

Hi S@bre, I wanted to let you know that I just joined the StarCraft task force of WP:VG and noticed it's largely inactive. I have removed users from the list of participants who haven't edited a Starcraft article in at least 6 months, as the section specifies. Unfortunately, this means you and I are currently the only members of the project.


Are you interested in reviving this taskforce? I recently revived the pro gaming taskforce (which has been renamed to eSports), and my main interest in that taskforce is professional StarCraft, so I would definitely be interested in helping to revive the StarCraft taskforce if you think it's a good idea. Let me know! —Entropy (talk) 23:48, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Starcraft Topic[edit]

While you're not that active, I'm letting you know that since StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm has been released, it grace period has started and if it doesn't reach at least GA status before June 12th, the StarCraft titles topic will be put up for FTRC. GamerPro64 20:31, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Image question[edit]

Do you recall whether File:Star_Wars_X-Wing_screenshot.jpg is from the original floppy disk edition, or from the TIE Fighter-engine-powered CD-ROM? --EEMIV (talk) 21:04, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Hmmm. I honestly can't remember, but looking at the screenshot I would probably go for it being from the DOS CD version. I cannot say for certain though! -- Sabre (talk) 17:38, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the painful color scheme[edit]

Now that I look back at it, that kind of actually stung my eyes a bit. Turns out basing the color scheme around the Sam & Max badge really didn't help. --MilitaryNut (talk) 23:33, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Basically, I do colors based on the most common features on art design in games for example. For example, I wouldn't just edit the navigation box for the Spiderman series with a seizure-inducing light pink and light green, I would examine the most recurring color in the franchise. But yet again, for some, I'll have to see if a majority approves of the color choice. --MilitaryNut (talk) 19:33, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed over 15 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the first message I sent out went to only WikiProject members).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:

  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with (at the time this message was sent out, 2 recruiters have volunteered), the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

Nomination of Locations of Half-Life for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Locations of Half-Life is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Locations of Half-Life until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Vaypertrail (talk) 10:14, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

March Madness 2017[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

For the Milhist co-ordinators. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 07:24, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
