Suggested WikiProjectsEdit

Hey Wikibenboy94—thanks for your recent contributions. I noticed your interest in Wikipedia's video game content and thought you might be interested in the video games WikiProject. We've done some great work (over 250 pieces of   Featured content and over 800   Good articles), but there is plenty more to do. Come say hello on our talk page, participate in our current events, or let me know if I can help with anything. Welcome to Wikipedia! I hope I'll see you around. -- ferret (talk) 15:20, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

"Very" positiveEdit

Please try to avoid adding language like "Very positive reviews", or removing text like "generally favorable". This is generally seen as being peacocky and non-neutral point of view. Typically, the best course of action with video games is to quote Metacritic directly, as this is something we can source. Anything else could be viewed as original research on our part. WP:VG/POV has some more information on video game guidelines.

Please keep up the good work. You've done a good job on the Call of Duty 4 Remastered section. -- ferret (talk) 15:23, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

February 2017Edit

  Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Fourth Doctor, but we cannot accept original research. Original research refers to material—such as facts, allegations, ideas, and personal experiences—for which no reliable, published sources exist; it also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. Ebyabe talk - State of the Union ‖ 19:03, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

  Hello, I'm David.moreno72. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Foodfight!, but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. David.moreno72 12:20, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Usage of "universal acclaim"Edit

Here are a couple of discussions in regards to the usage of "universal acclaim", one of which I started when I was working on getting God of War III to become a Featured Article. [1] [2] --JDC808 21:49, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

July 2018Edit

  Please do not add original research or novel syntheses of published material to articles as you apparently did to Viscera Cleanup Detail. Please cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Please do not add your own personal analysis of what a game's reception was. This includes citing multiple reviews that say nothing about a consensus among reviewers. This is known on Wikipedia as synthesis, and it is forbidden by policy. You must find a source that says what the consensus among reviewers was, not cite individual reviews and add your own analysis. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 02:46, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

August 2018Edit

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy by adding commentary and your personal analysis into articles, as you did at Bram Stoker's Dracula, you may be blocked from editing. Please stop adding your own personal thoughts about what a film's reception was. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 00:40, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

@NinjaRobotPirate I apologize for this. As per your July comment, I've understood more about how my prose for Viscera Cleanup Detail was original research/novel syntheses. Likewise, you've made me aware how this also related to my work on Bram Stoker's Dracula, and yet in terms of the latter I'm still a little confused about when an inclusion of a reception consensus ( "the film received critical acclaim" etc.) in the lead would violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy. As I see it, a film's reception section will have a number of reliable review articles for said film, and (if available) should also include the score the film was given from a review aggregation website (e.g. Rotten Tomatoes). If two film articles have similar reception sections that include such sourced content, please can you clarify the difference on why one film can have a reception consensus, but another (in this case, Bram Stoker's Dracula) can't? Wikibenboy94 (talk) 12:30, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Unfortunately, pings don't work when you add them to an existing edit ("if the mention is not on a completely new line with a new signature, no notification will be sent." from WP:PING). It's a weird and unintuitive feature. I'm not entirely sure I follow what you're asking. But one common problem with film articles is that people will add their own personal analysis of what the reception was like. One person will say it got "mixed reviews", another will change this to say it was "mixed-to-positive", and another will say that "critics praised X but critized Y". Well, it's all unsourced opinion. None of it belongs, because it's just random people on the internet saying what they think it was. That's fine for a blog or a forum post, but it doesn't work in a encyclopedia. Now, if a professional journalist says "it received mixed reviews", that's different. We can report that journalist's analysis, but we can't do it ourselves. Rotten Tomatoes has a critical consensus, and we can quote that. But we can't take the score of 55% or 65% or whatever, and extrapolate from that to say whether the reviews were "mixed", "positive", "critical acclaim", etc. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 11:42, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Neutral languageEdit

Hello, thanks for your recent edits to Fallout 76. Please remember to use neutral language wherever possible, so that statements like "given a crinkled bag made from cheap nylon" are avoided in favour of more neutral and less emotional language. Be sure to read WP:MOSWTW when you have some time, particularly the section on words that may introduce bias. Also, please note that not all information is relevant to the article, and sometimes it can work against neutrality. For example, the addition that the 500 Atom compensation is not enough to buy an in-game duffel bag is redundant information. --Michail (blah) 00:21, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

God of War 2018 FAC nominationEdit

Hey, so I'm wanting to nominate God of War for FAC. Since you've been helpful with the article, I was wondering if you could read over it to see if there's anything you see that you think may need changed or fixed. I read over it yesterday and I'm pretty confident with what's currently there. There are two things that I know need done, which are to replace the demo image in the Gameplay section with one of the final product (and possibly add another elsewhere in the article), and archive sources that haven't been archived yet. --JDC808 03:11, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll read through, though I'm sure if it's anything I think needs changing it'll just be grammatical stuff. I'm still just an amateur so I won't be able to assist with updating the image or achieving sources, in case you did need help on that.
I'm also considering nominating one video game article for WP:FA that I majorly contributed to and got to WP:GA a while back. An admin redirected me to WT:VG to see if anyone there could help, but it's been about a week and I've not got a response from anyone. Do you know the best way to have someone look through the article and possibly get it nominated? Wikibenboy94 (talk) 19:44, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
What article? I could take a look. You could also nominate it for Peer Review and state that you're wanting to nominate the article for FA. --JDC808 20:08, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
It's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (see above on this page for reference). Thanks I'll try that. Wikibenboy94 (talk) 21:24, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
@JDC808: I've started reading God of War and so far have a handful of grammatical changes I'd improve. Once I've gone over the whole thing am I fine to do this or did you want to be made aware first? Wikibenboy94 (talk) 09:16, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
You can go ahead and make the fixes. --JDC808 10:48, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your contributions to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, although three of the edits I have contested. Wikibenboy94 (talk) 21:05, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

RumEdit

The reason it was removed from Bethesda's article due to being caused by another company is perhaps valid enough, if weak, for removing it there. However, it's connection to Fallout 76 and the marketing mistakes surrounding it is relevant and should stay on that article. -- ferret (talk) 12:33, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Ok, sorry about that. Wikibenboy94 (talk) 12:41, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
