Speedy deletion nomination of Adaptive tile refresh[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Adaptive tile refresh requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

Adaptive tile refresh[edit]

Thanks for contributing the new article Adaptive tile refresh. However, one of Wikipedia's core policies is that material must be verifiable by being clearly attributed to reliable sources. Please help by adding sources to the article you created and by making it clear how the sources support the material. See here for how to do inline referencing. Many thanks! PS If you need any help, you can look at Help:Contents/Editing Wikipedia or ask at Wikipedia:New contributors' help page, or just ask me. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 22:25, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of World of Xilm[edit]

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on World of Xilm requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Speedy deletion nomination of RPCS3[edit]

Hello Wikinium,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged RPCS3 for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Trivialist (talk) 03:56, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

List of free PC titles[edit]

Although it probably qualifies for speedy deletion, I have tagged List of free PC titles to be merged into List of freeware video games. Please begin merging your list into that one so that we can redirect your page to the existing one. I may do so if I remember. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 23:50, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

    • The contents of this list do not fit there. This is a list of freeware as well as free-to-play games for the PC only. Thank you for your recommendation, but doing so would be destructive to the knowledge contained in this list. Wikinium (talk) 23:54, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of List of free PS4 titles[edit]

Hello Wikinium,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged List of free PS4 titles for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Trivialist (talk) 23:07, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

  • I understand, but I plan on adding content to it later tonight. How does one create an article without a lot of content and avoid immediate deletion?Wikinium (talk) 23:08, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

September 2014[edit]

Hi there. I've seen your edits around the project, and a few things:

  • You definitely can't make an article like List of video game ROM repositories.
    • First off, its a legal issue. You can't just make a list of websites where you can download illegal games. Not okay for Wikipedia.
    • Secondly, you're not going to want to create lists that consist largely of subjects that do not have their own articles. Its probably going to fail WP:LISTN if you do.
    • Thirdly, its never a good idea to, in general, create an article with no referenced. That's the fast track to get your article deleted, and I've seen yo do it more than once, beyond this article.
  • Second topic edits like this are not appropriate either. You may warn editors stop vandalizing articles on their user talk pages, but you should not be labeling them as vandals on their User page. You really shouldn't ever edit other people's User page, unless you're cleaning up vandalism from it. So please, no more comments like that, even if they are a vandal.
  • Third topic: This one is more advice - I'd recommmend not making any more "List of exclusive system x games" type articles. They're not necessary, when you can so easily just create an "exclusive" column at the prexisting list. See the List of Wii U software article as an example. If you want to see all the games that are Wii U exclusive, then just click on the "exclusive" heading, and it'll sort the titles automatically. It'd be better to clean up or create these columns than make new, very incomplete articles, like you've been doing. It looks like a bunch have been nominated for deletion as it is, so I know its not just me here either. Sergecross73 msg me 16:47, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

PC Master Race[edit]

Please do not mark constructive and well-sourced edits as vandalism. The history of the term "Master Race" is germane and discussed by reliable sources directly, some of whom think the term is benign and others who consider it cringeworthy or inappropriate. — TPX 10:14, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Three-revert rule[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at PC Master Race shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. — TPX 10:46, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Copy-paste moves[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Socket FM3 a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. -- intgr [talk] 07:52, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Your 'games by title' pages[edit]

03:22, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

It was originally set that way, but the list grew so large that it needed to be split into multiple pages. I am in the process of completing the split. Did you mean something else? Wikinium (talk) 03:24, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
No, actually- it's just that it takes quite a while for me to load pages, so I thought some impatient people could be annoyed by the split. Dakaryammer

03:25, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
On the bright side, these pages are small enough to load on older devices. The previous list was so large it couldn't even be easily edited or viewed on older/slower devices and connections. I think (and hope) the navigation bar I just ported to every page might make it easier to switch between lists. Wikinium (talk) 03:28, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Listing non PC games on our List of PC games[edit]

Please point me to the discussion where consensus was reached to include Nintendo games on List of PC games. It is clearly something we should not be doing. — TPX 19:07, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

The talk pages are scattered, but I think the only place it was ever actually mentioned was in "edit reasons" (in many deletes and undoings over the years) and in the main talk page itself. I see that nobody actually replied to my discussion until a few minutes before you made the first edit relating to it. Maybe it would be a good idea to re-start the discussion on the main talk page. Your reasons are that they weren't originally released on the PC, which I understand. My reasons are, the list is much more complete if games *playable* on PC are included, even if that means emulation. After all, Xbox One lists are beginning to include some of their "backwards compatible" titles as well, which are quite literally emulated Xbox 360 games. My argument is the same for the PC list: games that are directly playable on the PC's hardware should be included, which may actually mean excluding OnLive and other cloud services. Wikinium (talk) 19:41, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Which Xbox One list are you referring to? List of Xbox 360 games compatible with Xbox One is a separate article. There should be no backward compatible Xbox 360 titles listed on the List of Xbox One games page. These emulated games are approved by Microsoft and their partners, whereas Nintendo has not granted permission for people to emulate their games on PC. They regard it as copyright infringement. Naturally, our List of PC games should concern itself with PC games, and nothing more. — TPX 20:59, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
If that is the case, would it make sense to make a separate page that lists console games that are playable on the PC via emulation? It would be more appropriate than inserting them into the PC games list. Wikinium (talk) 23:41, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
I recommend you put that question to the WikiProject Video games community. Nintendo disapproves of emulation. They consider it piracy. [1] For this reason, Wikipedia may frown upon the idea. — TPX 07:22, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm aware that Nintendo probably isn't too keen on the idea of emulation, but I would hope that Wikipedia would side with the openness and freedom of information rather than siding with a corporation's best interests. There's a lot of information on Wikipedia that corporations and individuals don't like being available to the public, and Wikipedia seemed alright with that. Fingers crossed. I'm thinking List of PC games playable via emulation would be a good name. Wikinium (talk) 07:38, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Again, I would run this idea past the folks on WikiProject Video games. I never once saw List of copyrighted works available on Napster, so you may encounter difficulty, or you may not. — TPX 08:54, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Allow me to chime in here. Yes, one can play, say, Super Mario World on PC using an emulator, but one could also play it on PSP or Android to use but a couple of examples. Legally isn't even the issue there, and even "Nintendo considers it piracy" is irrelevant (Nintendo wouldn't acknowledge Super 3D Noah's Ark as a SNES games despite it being one, for instance). And why single out Nintendo games? What about almost other console from the Gamecube and earlier (on top of the Wii)....on TOP of which arcade games are playable on PC through emulation as well. An overwhelming percentage of these games are "playable on PC" but such a notion is really a pointless consideration. They weren't /released/ on PC, which is what matters. Honestly it really boggles me to see anyone could even fathom such a notion that "emulateable on PC should be on a list of PC games" without being a troll. ♫ Melodia Chaconne ♫ (talk) 14:16, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
I should mention that it never singled out Nintendo games, nor implied they were released for PC. Ever since the article was started, it has always said "playable on the PC" rather than "released on the PC". Games originally released for DOS and other older operating systems also require emulation via DOSBox, so there was always an exception for emulated games on this list.

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Testing1[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice that Template:Testing1, a page that you created, has been tagged for deletion. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. —PC-XT+ 08:40, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Since you asked in the template, I usually make test templates as subpages in my userspace. You can transclude these subpages like templates, just include the User: prefix or add a colon for a :user: prefix. When you are done with test templates, you can tag them with {{db-author}} or {{db-test}}. —PC-XT+ 08:47, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Cites on PC Master Race[edit]

New edit is a lot better. Please fill out the cite templates though, and move the references into the Reflist template. Guidelines ask that reference styles be uniform within an article. If you use reFill, be sure to check over it, as it will often miss authors or dates and you'll need to add them by hand. -- ferret (talk) 01:09, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

That should do it. I used another as a template, so there may be some potentially usable variables that were left out of the citation. Wikinium (talk) 18:24, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
