Request for a publication[edit]

Hello, Ryan. Doom II is quality stuff, so I have to ask a Reviewer to get my change published. With this as your guide, could you give your judgement about the updated Compet-N table in the article? I added a separate table to my subpage; the content there is identical to the one in Doom II but the listing order is from the Compet-N site. If you make comparisons between the source site and the table, it would happen more conveniently via the subpage.

I've checked the data once myself and tested that the links work. There were no problems with those, but there's one questionable thing: according to the point policy for game movies (MAP01 - MAP30/32, "ALL"), some of the categories have two or three current records instead of one (they give a varying amount of points). However, I thought to only add the fastest records of the categories; that is the way things have been done in the wiki so far, and I'm pretty sure that the majority of readers are more interested in seeing fast playthroughs than knowing what kind of awards the speedrunners have had. Still, it's just an opinion among others.

Feel free to comment on your decision. --Jartapran 20:27, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

It's been years since I looked at the records, but I think all your ideas are workable.  Unfortunately, I can't help directly, because I'm not a Reviewer (see Special:Listusers).    Ryan W 00:02, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
AFAIK, Administrators are Reviewers by default. How else could you have done that to Unmaker's edit? :) Now, I cannot tell for sure, but I guess revisions turn into quality ones when the review grades (or some of them) reach a higher level in comparison with the Editor grades (Sighted/Basic/Moderate/Acceptable/Good/Concise). For instance, the last quality revision in Doom II was by Quasar with the grades Well sourced, High and Concise. [1]
If you're still unable to help, fine. Thanks anyway. --Jartapran 04:33, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
AFAIK, Administrators are Reviewers by default. -- not by default, I had to whine about it to get it to change so that admins be granted reviewer rights. --Gez 14:12, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
You are right; I totally forgot about that thread.  Apologies.  I'll take a look when I get home.    Ryan W 14:17, 11 May 2013 (UTC)


If you're on board with what appears to be a tiny consensus in favor of keeping the Eidolon article, I'd like to make some enhancements to it to de-emphasize the protracted description of Hexen II battle tactics, which are fairly off-topic here, in favor of more descriptive prose on his appearance, behaviors, place amongst the Serpent Riders, actions on the world of Thyrion, etc. Some kind of pic would be a nice touch too, IMO. --Quasar 20:16, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Quasar.  If we must discuss him, that's the way to do it.  Frankly our standards for inclusion still seem nebulous to me.  In a thread like that, however, with low turnout and at least one "disinterested" keep post, and not a copyvio or anything, we've generally kept the article assuming potential for improvement.  So feel free to close if you want.    Ryan W 02:00, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
