Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

This Dreamcast thing is happening[edit]

It's happening in my sandbox. I'm sure since it's an edit in userspace, we can use the Sega Task Force page for some discussion on the matter as it comes up. It looks very much like this article needs a full rewrite from top to bottom. Also, still waiting on some Master System feedback... Red Phoenix let's talk... 00:21, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Is there anything I can do Simon How can I help? 15:40, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Cleaning up the Sega studios[edit]

I suggest moving the 2nd party Sega studios, that existed until 2000-2004. SEGA AM3, Sega Sports R&D, it's all outdated and inaccurate. Just name them what they were called between 2000-2004, Smilebit, Hitmaker etc. Also make the pages for WOW, Overworks, Sega Rosso, United Game Artists and Sega Technical Institue seperate.

Like with Capcom, Namco Bandai etc. most of us don't know which exact department made which game, especially with lots of the JP-exclusive SEGA has. Like the Japan wiki, I suggest, branding everything "SEGA" like the japanese wiki articles, except when it explictly states on the packaging or title screen. Like Sonic Team and AM2. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tripple-ddd (talkcontribs) 12:48, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Sonic Retro magazine scan library ( is down[edit]

This poses a problem for me as I rely heavily on those scans when writing Sonic articles. I'm going to try to contact the administrators to ask when it'll be back up (or if it's just been removed for good on copyright grounds), but for now we're in a bit of a bear's den.

Just reminding everyone, if they didn't know, that you've got a Good Topic all completed here, with it converting to a Featured Topic once Sega Saturn passes FAC. --PresN 04:42, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

  • I see that the Sega Saturn is now a Featured Article? Are there any plans for a FTC nomination to be made in the future? GamerPro64 01:48, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Just a suggestion. Anyone can nominate the topic, really. Just gotta give credit to who promoted the articles to their current status. I could start a nomination for the topic if no one else is interested. GamerPro64 15:43, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
  • That's fine. Ping me if you need a support or something; everything looks to be fine. Tezero (talk) 21:22, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

@Red Phoenix, @Tezero: Reminder about this. I'd feel awkward about nominating it myself since I only did the List of consoles, but if you want I can. --PresN 21:58, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

I think it'd be fine to just go ahead with it and just give the primary author credits where due czar  22:01, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Alright, nominated at Wikipedia:Featured topic candidates/Sega video game consoles/archive1. Feel free to add anything I forgot. --PresN 22:29, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Hideki Sato nominated for Speedy Deletion[edit]

Somebody expand his article so it is not deleted.

This page needs a major cleanup and update[edit]

I never knew that the Sega Task force was a thing until I did a major cleanup for the TMS Entertainment article. Point being, I really feel that the page needs a major update. For starters, the Sega Sammy Holdings and TMS Entertainment templates are not on the front page of the task force, and, Yakuza and Valkyria Chronicles are not template pages to be monitored? Plus, ever since the acquisition of Atlus, most of the Sega Task force have been fixing Atlus articles too so I think that deserves a mention on the task force.
