Hello, can someone add the logo to the Baldur's Gate III article? I can't upload files yet. Thanks. Baldurfan (talk) 21:35, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

I've added it.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 00:52, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. Baldurfan (talk) 22:46, 15 July 2019 (UTC)


Can someone inspect the last several edits, I don't have the time to see if is RS< which the editor asserts it is. Article was getting some attention on Twitter, but per outing policies any info i have on that cant be done on Wiki. (edit some attention was about 20-50 people) Thanks,L3X1 ◊distænt write◊ 03:23, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

L3X1, Programmers At Work has zero credentials and no staff writer is ever mentioned by name, so it shouldn't be used. I removed several unreliable sources from the article. Lordtobi () 07:59, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Indie / Independent video game RMEdit

An RM discussion is open at Talk:Independent video game#Requested move 16 July 2019 for several articles that have "indie game" or "independent video game" in the title. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 08:57, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Draft: Defender's QuestEdit

Can someone with article review privileges review Draft: Defender's Quest? It was initially rightfully rejected, I improved it with RS but it was rejected again (see the discussion at User talk:Chetsford#Draft:Defender's Quest rejected.) He refuses to consider the WP:VG/S reliable sources for some reason so I would ask for someone more familiar with video games to review and sign off on it.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 08:44, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

From experience, that user is exceptionally hard on considering sources to be reliable and/or independent. Another reviewer would be more fair, I imagine. BOZ (talk) 14:16, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
It's not just picky, it's completely incorrect. They are reliable sources with full editorial teams, and were agreed upon as such by a large amount of users. If someone is going to mark pages wrongly as rejected, they shouldn't have page review rights, I'd say.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 15:48, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Hard to disagree with you there; I suppose I was just trying to be nice. ;) But you are absolutely correct. BOZ (talk) 16:18, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
I strongly disagree; reviewing the discussion, Chetsford's comments seem perfectly reasonable. Just because a source is reliable doesn't mean it indicates notability of the subject.--Martin IIIa (talk) 19:42, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
While that is true, he continued to argue against it even when I pointed out that they were reviews of the game, and therefore, significant mentions that satisfied notability. And then unilaterally closed the discussion, in an example of WP:OWN. It seems he is having a little power trip.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 16:16, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
Closing the discussion at that point may have been inappropriate, but I'm not picking up any hint of WP:OWN, particularly as he says "Feel free to submit the article for a second opinion." There's still plenty of room to assume good faith.--Martin IIIa (talk) 19:01, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
The problem is that "feel free to resubmit" is essentially dodging responsibility for causing all the issues in the first place. It's like if an Uber driver dropped you off halfway to your destination because they didn't like that part of town, and said "feel free to get a new cab". They still caused inconvenience.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 20:36, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
We don't have Defender's Quest article o_O? [1][2][3][4][5] from VG/RS and probably more before I got bored looking through search results. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 16:53, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
Well we do now :) Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs talk 22:00, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Proposed mergerEdit

I've proposed a merger of Heavy Gear to Heavy Gear (video game), if this is of interest to anyone. Chetsford (talk) 16:28, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

Merging AirAttack 2 (video game) with AirAttack 2Edit

These two articles are for the same game, if someone wants to merge the disambiguated article with the base name it would be helpful.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 00:47, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

  • AFD does not force us to preserve an article. Both copies should be redirected to the first game's topic. The two copies are basically spam at this point. --Izno (talk) 01:00, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
    • In the AfD it was proven the 2nd game was independently notable. (See Sergecross's comment in it).ZXCVBNM (TALK) 05:43, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
      • An AFD rarely decides that material cannot be merged, only that the content could stand as its own article without being subject to the deletion mechanism. --Izno (talk) 14:32, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
        • I don’t believe anyone is saying “force” or “can’t”, I think he’s just saying that keeping the article was the most recent consensus on the matter. (Though I haven’t been following the article for years now, so it’s possible there are other discussions that have happened since. But if not, then another discussion would probably be the best course forward.) Sergecross73 msg me 14:53, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
        • Yeah I don't agree at all with merging. [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] - Bryn (talk) (contributions) 17:57, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareEdit

There is still no information about remastered version (expect natutally unsourced lead). Eurohunter (talk) 17:55, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
