As discussed already, ToD himself removed his real name from most pages that contained it, the category being the one exception. He later registered here and created this page. He never explicitly said that he wanted his name off the wiki, but maybe we were supposed to take the hint from his edits. Eris Falling (talk) 18:43, 10 February 2018 (CST)
- Quasar doesn't mention whether there were any additional requests in the conversation. But my experience is that people don't know categories exist, unless they edit regularly. Maybe that needs to move also? Ryan W (living fossil) 18:56, 10 February 2018 (CST) (EDIT: It wasn't Quasar, it was you! Sorry about that. I'll move the category if you want.)
I'm not taking any action just yet, but I think just so we're all on the same page with regards to this article it's worth noting that ToD's wadography is kinda strange. ESP, which is linked, is perhaps his best known work, but it's actually a compilation of other maps, which are also being linked to. Stuff like Slaughterfest 2012, Time of Maps, Slaughterfest 3... Same story for ESP2, which contains maps from the Doomworld Mega Projects, amongst other things.
I think the best way of handling this is quite obvious but it may be best to put it in writing, but we can just use map articles for the original releases, and then add a sentence or something about it also appearing in ESP or ESP2. I'm not familiar enough with his work to know if we'll need more than that, I know dholes at least differs slightly from its appearance in ESP and SF3, but that's the only edit I'm aware of. --Eris Falling (talk) 13:22, 24 August 2018 (CDT)
- In other wadographies where everything was redlinked (e.g. Ed, Pcorf, Shadowman) it gave the impression that everything is notable and should have its own article. But that seems rare for many WAD authors. Just because entries are redlinked doesn't always mean an article is worth the effort, given the limited capacity of active editors. In wadographies with only a select few entries redlinked, I assumed someone more knowledgeable than me already made those choices because of notability, and generally left them alone. But in cases like the above examples, I chose to de-link all, and was inclined to do the same here until I noticed this discussion.
- I realize I'm looking at it from a different angle than what Eris is pointing out, but to me it seems more practical to relink a WAD entry once someone creates an article for it because it's considered notable by whatever criteria. Meanwhile, the Wanted Pages list dropped below 3000. :) --Xymph (talk) 16:26, 4 September 2019 (CDT)
