Please stop removing content from pages. This is vandalism. If you continue to remove content from pages, you will be blocked from further editing. Thanks. --Gwib -(talk)- 15:29, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Um...a good idea instead of just deleting the page would have been to mark it for quick deletion :). {{qd}} in case you were wondering :). Hope this helps :) Cheers, Razorflame 17:05, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

It should be noted that I created Category:Super Nintendo Entertainment System games for the SNES games, and Category:Mario platform games and Category:Mario video games exist to catalog the small number of games that we have articles on. CFD doesn't exist here, so if you want to move them, we have to do it manually or use AWB. Cassandra 18:56, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Barnstar![change source]

Original Barnstar.png The Original Barnstar
For all your hard work on Pokémon and video game related articles, I award you this Barnstar! -- America alk 17:37, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

VG[change source]

I think you might want to hold off on replicating en's VG style. so far it's a project with only two people in it, and Simple is not in WP:1.0, so it's not as if there's a pressing priority to categorize and rank the quality of the articles. Cassandra 01:35, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

I think we should submit this proposal to WP:ST before going any further at least. Cassandra 01:48, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Legend of Zelda[change source]

Is the first video game more likely to be the target, then? It seems rather pointless to have a disambiguation that essentailly lists every video game when the (series) page already has them all. Cassandra 23:41, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, according to the English Wiki - and I'm not saying we should do everything as en.wiki does, but I think that this wiki should make it a policy to give preference to the first game unless the series is so exceptionally more well-known - for example, The Sims should be about the series, since the series itself is more popular than the first game. - A Link to the Past (talk) 00:02, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

A Barnstar![change source]

9point-barnstar.png The Massive Editing Barnstar
For the Massive amounts of articles you've created, I award you this Barnstar! -- America alk 20:43, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
This makes me envious :) Cheers, Razorflame 19:37, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
Why, thank you - A Link to the Past (talk) 19:46, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
It makes me wonder why nobody has awarded this BS to me yet :P. Cheers, Razorflame 19:47, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Re:Editor review[change source]

My reply here. Oh, and if you could review me, I'd greatly appreciate it also. Thanks, RyanCross (talk) 03:53, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

 Done. I've reviewed you. -- RyanCross (talk) 03:29, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey,[change source]

I've seen you doing a very good job (as is evident my the Barnstars), and I just was wondering if you created short article, you'd mark it with {{stub}}? Not that you're doing it wrong, but somebody with most likely come back and do it later. Thanks ;) -- America †alk 03:47, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Much better. Good job -- America †alk 04:16, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Redirects[change source]

Think maybe you're going a little overboard...what is the liklihood that someone searches Animal Crossing (DS)? I can see without the parentehses, sure. And what is the likelihood of someone searching the exact Japanese title of Brain Age, with all the Japanese scripting? I dunno, I think it may overdoing it. Anyway, I've replied WP:ST page about stubs, it might be a good idea, we'll have to see. Cassandra 01:32, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Scrubs[change source]

Bwhahahahaha. When you moved that, I immediately thought about the shitstorm over on our big brother about the constant edit warring whether the main article Scrubs should be about the TV show or not. Cassandra 06:31, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, some people are crazy at Wikipedia. I remember a debate over attempting to get Spore (video game) moved to Spore. - A Link to the Past (talk) 06:33, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

WP:RFD[change source]

Hi, I noticed you nominated something for deletion using the new system. Could you give me some feedback on it? Was it too complicated? Is there anything I can change on it? mc8 16:29, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Pikmin[change source]

Is there a source for the game? Is there an official Nintendo statement that says that the next Pikmin is coming? Cassandra 05:45, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I added a source to the Future section - a journalist asked Miyamoto what's going on with Pikmin (not his exact words), and Miyamoto said "we're making it". - A Link to the Past (talk) 05:52, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Ah, my apologies, I should have checked first. Cassandra 05:56, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

RE: Alleyway[change source]

Actually trying to go through and simplify each section right now to be easier to understand. Shouldn't be too hard without removing too much of the information. Currently up to the scoring subsection.--Kung Fu Man (talk) 19:16, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Bill Gates- related[change source]

Why did you change Bill Gates to {{video-game-stub}}? He is only semi-related to it, and not necessarily part of it. I don't think, at all, they should have it. Only Video games. Discuss? — American Eagle (talk) 02:13, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Bot?[change source]

You seem to be making an extremely amount of minor edits, with the exact same edit summary, in one or two seconds. Are you running a bot from your account? It is strange that you would make this many edits in such a short time. — Jonas Rand · (talk) 04:14, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

I believe 4:00 refers to minutes, I think I may have made a mistake. That's still very fast, are you using a manually-assisted automated program? — Jonas Rand · (talk) 04:24, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Thank You. — Jonas Rand · (talk) 17:50, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Contractions[change source]

Avoid adding contractions (like it's or don't), which beginning English speakers might not understand. Thanks in advance, --TBC 02:58, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Your recent category creations.[change source]

Like the cancelled video games one. There was only one page in that category, so it's kind of extraneous. Let alone the fact that there's nowhere near enough pages to fill a category for each console. Unless you're planning on mass-creating video game pages... Ziggy Sawdust 19:06, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Ah, I see. Keep on truckin'. I just didn't want to see a bunch of unused categories... Ziggy Sawdust 19:12, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Just hold on for some time; they'll eventually get populated. I'm in a similar situation in trying to populate movie categories from en since we remove most of them when creating the articles here. This leads to a lot more category work to readd/delete other categories. Cassandra talk 19:56, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Wikiproject[change source]

Hi, I joined your wikiproject, and thought I would make a few minor edits, as you can see with this diff. Hope you don't mind :) Grant Kennedy (talk) 08:40, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, a message for you @[change source]

WikiProject:Video games[change source]

Hi, I have found your name on the project page User:A Link to the Past/WikiProject Video games. I have an interest in this topic myself and have done much work on wiki articles related to video games so I have added my name to the list and I have started a vote on Wikipedia:Simple talk to have the project approved and moved out to its proper place WP:Video games. I am announcing this to all members and asking you to come and vote your support if possible. G Luck ~ R.T.G 02:41, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Pedestal[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of Pedestal, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2015/Pedestal and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. Hydriz (talk) 13:20, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
