AO Tennis‎‎[edit]

What are you doing?. Why are you so mean to me. I did what you said, and again you added notability, to my page. Tell me what is now wrong with my page. Why did you again add notability. Why????. Please, I really want to know what I do wrong. --thomediter (talk) 17:57, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

@Thomediter: Firstly, I wouldn't consider removing inappropriate constant and adding a notability tag to an article as being mean. Secondly, the tag itself explains why it's there, so read it. And also read WP:NOTABILITY. All the sources I've found just mention the game is coming out. There is no preview coverage, or much information on its development/gameplay. Therefore, it probably shouldn't be an article until there is more significant coverage from reliable, secondary sources, like critic reviews. --The1337gamer (talk) 10:19, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Retro Gamer #91[edit]

Hi, would it be possible for you to provide me with scans of "The Making of Sonic Adventure" from Retro Gamer #91? JOEBRO64 14:56, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

  • @TheJoebro64: I can however the issue at my parents house and I won't be visiting there until the end of February. So you'd have to wait about a month. You could ask on the WikiProject talk page if anyone else has a copy. There are other editors who collect and read Retro Gamer. --The1337gamer (talk) 16:44, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks for replying quickly. If I'm not able to find a scan I'll just let you know. JOEBRO64 22:19, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello there, i edited/added the ps4 and xbox platforms because several sites around the internet claims that the game will launch on consoles so based on these statements i added the plaforms in which the game will launch. ZenIceHero (talk) 06:52, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Ubisoft Montpellier/Red Storm[edit]

No need to commentlessly revert the redirect twice. As pointed out, both articles carry just about no sources, and as such fail WP:GNG (keep in mind that notability is not WP:INHERITed). Both articles can be recreated if enough sources are found, but should be because sources can be found. Lordtobi () 19:25, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

  • @Lordtobi: WP:BRD. You blanked an article without explanation. I reverted. You do not blanked it gain. You discuss. Stop making shit changes. I'll find sources if you're too lazy to bother. --The1337gamer (talk) 19:27, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
    Bad day? Please don't let off your steam onto other editors, thanks. I also don't see the point in massively restoring WikiProject templates that state the redirects are Start-class articles. Lordtobi () 19:29, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
@Lordtobi: You've been around long enough to understand how things should work. Yet I still see you frequently edit warring and acting ineptly. I can give you a bunch of reasons why not to redirect those talk pages but I'm not going to waste my time. --The1337gamer (talk) 19:33, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Collaborating on Halo[edit]

Hey The1337gamer, you seem to be willing to rescue the first Halo's Wikipedia entry from the FAR situation that's been brewing lately. I'd like to lend my hand for this effort, but in my view the first order of business will be to assemble a credible information base to beef up the article's Development section, which seems substandard to me. I think it is important to obtain scans of an article from Electronic Gaming Monthly's Issue 151 (February 2002) titled "Afterthoughts – Halo", which explains the rationale behind some of the more fundamental revisions made to the game during its development. However, neither this particular issue nor the feature seem to be available in electronic form, as do many of EGM's issues from the early 2000s. I wonder if you happened to come across this article or know some way to access it in the short run? I would be much obliged to be able to count on your support.

Notability of The Sims 4 Game Packs[edit]

Hi The1337gamer, I noticed you've tagged The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure as questionable notability. I was curious as to whether or not this is applicable to other expansion packs for the game that have their own articles. I've been focused on editing The Sims articles recently because the franchise is very near to my heart, so I would appreciate other viewpoints as to the notability of these specific expansion pack articles. I'm also more than happy to continue working on articles such as this and others that are lacking citations, as I have been able to find more sources other than what is already featured on the article. Thank you, Nanophosis (talk) 17:40, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

@Nanophosis: I have similar issues with the other Sims 4 articles. These articles are very short and there is no coverage from reliable sources on the development and design of these expansions. Reception/review coverage is minimal as well. I think merging them to one article would be more appropriate than having 10 separate articles. An article titled something like The Sims 4 expansion packs or The Sims 4 downloadable content that covers all of the content from these expansion articles would work.--The1337gamer (talk) 18:18, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

List of artists who have portrayed themselves in music games[edit]

Hi, have deprodded this to merge into the List of celebrity appearances in video games. That list is currently unreferenced so I will try to add a reference for every entry. User:PMC said to go ahead with the merge as it has been proposed since 2017 but am a bit busy so will hope to start it and add refs within the next two weeks, thanks Atlantic306 (talk) 10:39, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Edge Magazine no. 240 May 2012[edit]

Know how to get ahold of this? According to the cover, it contains something on Quantic Dream, which I wanna rewrite. The studio profile you suggested contributed a lot to Dontnod Entertainment. I'm just grasping at straws for something like that to improve Quantic Dream's article. Cognissonance (talk) 17:08, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

  • I don't have this issue of Edge and I don't think it has a detailed Studio Profile feature like the one on Dontnod in #293. It does have an interview with David Cage though. Edge republished the interview from #240 on their website. Here's a link: [1]. If you're looking for other print sources, then I know that GamesTM #194 released this year had a feature on Detroit with David Cage and Quantic Dream. --The1337gamer (talk) 18:07, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I found this in Games TM, p. 30: "the rate at which human intelligence develops pales in comparison to that of a machine". I wrote that in Detroit: Become Human's development section. Nice, they borrowed from me. Cognissonance (talk) 20:08, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
Wow ye, just checked it myself. Word for word copy there. I've noticed this a few times with some of my work on Wikipedia. Writers for video game websites or YouTubers copying stuff almost exactly from Wikipedia articles that I edited. I feel like a handful of WP:VG's most dedicated editors are better content writers than the majority of the video game press anyway and we do it for free. --The1337gamer (talk) 20:26, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
I've noticed the same on multiple occasions, like Metro Times quoting me instead of David Cage: "to revitalize a city that had succumbed to economic decline after having made a historical contribution to American industry". All they did was change the s to a z! Cognissonance (talk) 20:51, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

About DS Bosses list[edit]

Do I need to restrict the list to bosses important to the plot, or do I add NPCs? Or is it because it isn't finished? VolseniMack (talk) 18:55, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Lists of bosses, NPCs, weapons, enemies, etc don't belong on Wikipedia. #6 and #7 at WP:GAMECRUFT cover this. --The1337gamer (talk) 19:02, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I just thought "Hey, since there are already lists of video game characters, why not make this list?". And I know about the part on "no boss lists on Wikipedia"(at least now I do). I would assume that the bosses within the Souls games have more significance than the main characters and are one of the important parts of the series gameplay-wise. VolseniMack (talk) 18:29, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
Most lists of video game characters are really poor quality and shouldn't exist. It's just that a lot of them are old and nobody has bothered to deal with them. We have actually redirected/deleted a bunch of them in recent years. We should only write about video game characters that have real world significance and not focus too much on the in-universe perspective. Dark Souls bosses, while they are a significant component of the games, they are not really subject to coverage outside of that fictional universe. A boss list also runs the risk of being written too much like a game guide since the player's interaction with the characters is simply fighting them, and Wikipedia is not a game guide. Content like this is better for a Dark Souls wiki rather than Wikipedia. --The1337gamer (talk) 18:45, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

How does leaving a link to either the Dark Souls wiki or Fextralife as a "for more information" sort of thing? VolseniMack (talk) 19:05, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Video game guideline on external links is here: WP:VG/EL. Open wikis are usually a no. But it says that if the link has substantial information that is relevant but not necessarily encyclopedic in nature, like a dedicated wiki, then it may be added on a case-by-case basis. So you're best off making a topic on the talk page of the article you want to add the link on to see if other editors think it is appropriate or not. --The1337gamer (talk) 19:27, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Kneejerk idiocy[edit]

Dude, at least do us the basic human courtesy of checking our edits before you hit the revert button. Other people are trying to improve articles too. Thank you. Equinox 03:18, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Regarding “Windows” on Sea of Thieves[edit]

Regarding this revision of yours, when Microsoft Windows is first mentioned in any article, it goes by its full name, Microsoft Windows. The article is called “Microsoft Windows” and it is the name of the family of operating systems. Other articles, including articles about video games, use the full name of the operating system in the article body and infobox, and so does one of the examples in the template documentation for the infobox (look at the examples of the |platform= parameter. This is partly so that that it is not ambiguous. Interqwark talk contribs 17:22, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Plenty of video game articles just use "Windows". It is obviously not ambiguous in the context of a video game. Saying "Microsoft Windows" is just plain clumsy. Video game and tech sources almost never state "Microsoft Windows", therefore why should we? It's like writing "Microsoft Xbox 360" or "Sony PlayStation 4" etc. for every single platform. You don't see that on video game articles. The only reason people write "Microsoft Windows" is because the article is located at that title and people have some weird subconscious problem with using perfectly fine redirects (like Windows) instead of the actual page title, even when it is better to use the redirect. --The1337gamer (talk) 17:28, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
There is no problem with using redirect links (per MOS:NOPIPE and WP:NOTBROKEN), but in this case, we’re debating whether the infobox should say “Windows” or “Microsoft Windows.” As I said, other articles use the latter, and that is the name of the page and the operating system.
Perhaps we could use some help from another, experienced editor.
{{Help me}}
By the way, I reverted you because, in this case, I wasn’t looking for consensus but rather reverting your incorrect revision, but we might want to reach a consensus since we both disagree. Interqwark talk contribs 17:40, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) Thel337gamer is one of our most experienced editors in the video game area. It would do you well to heed his statements. -- ferret (talk) 17:44, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
@ferret: Understood. I was confused since every other video game article I’ve come across uses “Microsoft Windows” rather than simply “Windows,” both in the article bodies and infoboxes. Interqwark talk contribs 17:45, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
@ferret: Should every article listing Windows as one of the platforms simply use the name (and link) “Windows” instead of “Microsoft Windows”? Interqwark talk contribs 18:26, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
MOS:VG has no specific guidance on this, but it strikes me as a bit like the current discussion about whether to include video game in the lead. The argument "Everyone knows that a first person shooter is a video game" could just as easily be argued that "Everyone knows what Windows is when talking about video games". If you want a strong consensus I would pose it as a question on MOS:VG's talk page. -- ferret (talk) 18:38, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
I agree. Everybody does know what Windows is. Windows isn’t just related to video games, though, so I’m not sure if MOS:VG is the appropriate talk page to post a discussion like that on. Interqwark talk contribs 18:54, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
It's use in video games is appropriate for MOS:VG. If people disagree the discussion could move to MOS:COMPUTING. -- ferret (talk) 18:56, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Batman: White Knight, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Trade paperback (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

File:WarioWare Gold Cover.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:09, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Your revert on Fallout (series)[edit]

Hi. Regarding your revert on Fallout (series), the article was initially written in British English (although using the MDY date format); I went back and checked old revisions on the page. I’m not sure if MOS:TIES counts video game series; it only mentions nations and modern writers. However, if a video game series does count, it should use American English. I suppose it could count since the video games are basted in America, but I’m unsure about that.

You also reverted my other edits. For instance, I also reverted a revision by where he or shes moved the “Fallout New Vegas (2010” revision to the “Spin-off games” section. Even though it might take more time, I think it would be better to undo the edits that you need to undo manually instead of reverting entire revisions that have other valid, unrelated edits. No worries, though: I’ve redone them. Interqwark talk contribs 22:17, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

@Interqwark: If you don't want large complicated edits reverted in total, don't make them. Use smaller edits to do individual edits at a time, not 4 unrelated changes together. No one else is obligated to pick apart your large edits to fix one. New Vegas is a spin off, and I added sourcing supporting that after the IP moved it. -- ferret (talk) 22:22, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
@ferret: I like to do more in single revisions since it’s less tedious to browse the revisions that way, but I understand what you mean. I have no problem with undoing edits manually, but of course, it’s more tedious to do so.
I didn’t know that New Vegas was considered a spin-off now. I’m sorry that I moved the section again. I’ve added this information to the Fallout: New Vegas article. Interqwark talk contribs 22:27, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  • It is completely irrelevant what the article was written in originally. WP:RETAIN says to retain the existing variety that has been established in the article. A revision from ~15 years ago is not established. The existing variety is obviously American English because that is what the article has almost if not entirely been written in for at least several years now. That is established. No valid reason for change. --The1337gamer (talk) 23:07, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @Reedetch: Uh, the warning template tells you what the problem is. You aren't using reliable secondary sources.
