Create Template For Defunct Games[edit]

I was directed here when contacting Wikipedia directly to find out how I can create a template similar to Moby Games for linking to external reviews on Defunct Games. They said it was a bit involved but the group of folks over here would be willing to help me out. Patrick O'Connor —Preceding undated comment added 21:51, 19 March 2012 (UTC).

Stub templates up for renaimg at SFD[edit]

The various computer and video game stub templates are now up for discussion for renaming at SFD since you have by and large finished with the category renames. The one stub category that you didn't change over is also up for a rename. Caerwine Caer’s whines 19:44, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Help with template testing[edit]

I posted this on the talk for the main CVG project page, but in case of omission:

I've created Template:VG Requirements, a template to assist in describing the requirements for personal computer games. It can have support for multi-PC release data (eg Mac and PC versions), but before I add that in (a bunch of copy, paste, and replace), I need some help to kick the tires around to see if this needs anything else or other improvements. --Masem 15:21, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Take a look template[edit]

I've created a template designed to enable people to bring a current discussion to users attention

{{VG-Discussion|title of discussion on talk page}} e.g. {{VG-Discussion|GamesRadar}} (active discussion at the moment) returns

and including nothing after the | (e.g. {{VG-Discussion|}})simply links to the talk page itself:

Don't know if maybe people want to include this in the list of templates?

Notability-based restrictions for infobox credits?[edit]

Brought this up on the talk page for the infobox. Some more opinions would be appreciated! Prime Blue (talk) 11:15, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Template for video game reviews?[edit]

I've only just joined the video game project, and am struggling to find the reviews table template, which contains fields that link to the various reviewers. I'll copy it from another article for now but I assumed I'd find it here! Samwalton9 (talk) 13:11, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Redirect talk page[edit]

This talk page gets very little traffic. Any discussion here would not see a wide audience, but should. Is there any opposition to archiving and then redirecting this talk page to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Video games where more people can participate in discussions relevant to this page? – czar 16:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
