Hello. Thank you for your EBSCO approval for my application, but I didn't realize giving my true identity was a requirement. I don't feel completely safe doing that at this time. I'm sorry I didn't realize this beforehand. Thanks again though. Wolfdog (talk) 23:30, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

OK, no worries, Wolfdog. Please feel free to apply again at a future date. In the meanwhile, I would suggest utilizing WP:RX for any one-off documents you are interested in. There are numerous editors there with university access (which often includes EBSCO access) who would be happy to help you track down any specific sources. Happy editing. -Thibbs (talk) 02:17, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

User talk:-revi/Archive 11#Translation request[edit]

Hello, sorry for the late reply (that the original thread is now in the archive...)!

The transliteration you requested would be Wikiproject:Video Game - yes, that's the same from English, because I just found out that the term is just a literal translation of English Term "Wikiproject" and "Video Game".

Sorry it took that long for this simple thing! — regards, Revi 07:39, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

@-revi: - Thanks for your help, but I'm curious if there is a different revised romanization (RR) that we could use instead of using the English. For example, in the article Blade & Soul (a Korean video game), we see 『블레이드 앤 소울』 being transliterated as "Beulleideu aen soul" (which is clearly a direct translation of the English "Blade and Soul"). This is something we see a lot at WP:VG when it comes to Japanese games which are almost always rendered in romaji as well as English and Japanese even though they are really just direct translations (examples: 1, 2, 3, etc.).
Without using the English as a guide, might 『위키프로젝트:비디오 게임』 be rendered anything close to "Wikipeulojegteu:Bidio geim"? Or would something like "Wikipeurojekteu:Bidio Geim" be better? Is there a better Romanization? Or is the translation ("Wikiproject:Video Game") the closest we could come to a transliteration? Thanks again for your help! -Thibbs (talk) 20:35, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
Ah, that. Wi[1]ki[2]peu[3]ro[4]jek[5]teu[6]: bi[7]di[8]o[9] ge[10]im[11] (Wikipeurojekteu:bidiogeim)

I clearly misinterpreted your question then, sorry! — regards, Revi 11:14, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much, -revi! -Thibbs (talk) 19:26, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

File:Stgigaprize.jpg listed for discussion[edit]


A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Stgigaprize.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for discussion. Please see the discussion to see why it has been listed (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry). Feel free to add your opinion on the matter below the nomination.

ATTENTION: This is an automated, bot-generated message. This bot DID NOT nominate any file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 23:55, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

  • trash Redundant Duplicate report? Anyway the irony is thick. I just bought another Satellaview magazine today and my time is still too limited to put in the work required to show that the image is helpful. Why am I gathering sources if I don't have the time to collate them? Who knows... Given that there are no conceivable legal threats to Wikipedia via the hosting of this image (NFUR proudly displayed at the file page and permission of photographer filed with OTRS), the utility of the proposed deletion rather escapes me and I confess that this feels a bit like the elevation of bureaucracy over reason, but I've already given my opinion on the topic the first go-round and I suspect I wouldn't have anything especially illuminating to add to the discussion this time either. Thanks all the same for the alert. Good luck with everything. -Thibbs (talk) 00:58, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Small Soldiers: Squad Commander[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Small Soldiers: Squad Commander has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

whole article is copied from another wiki. no source

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Sulaimandaud (talk) 20:26, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Sulaimandaud - Prod isn't available for redirects. I created this redirect 6 years ago and to be honest I completely forgot it existed. If you look at the history of the page you can see that it was only expanded into an article 3 days ago by User:DoctorHver. Was that who you were trying to warn? Have you considered, by the way, that a better route than WP:PROD might be a targeted WP:REVDEL (if you suspect that it's a copyvio) and then simply returning the page to a redirect as it's been for the last 6 years? -Thibbs (talk) 23:41, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
@Thibbs: Please accept my sincerest apologies, I'll remove the PROD and undid the revision done by User:DoctorHver.

PS: This was added as edit summary by user:doctorHver "These are two completely different games the PS1 game which is thrid person shooter, while the PC game is a stragedy game" Sulaimandaud (talk) 23:54, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

No worries. I'll look into the claims made by DoctorHver's edit summary as soon as I get a chance. -Thibbs (talk) 00:13, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
