Impersonating troll[edit]

Are you looking for User:ConSiGno/Sandbox-Little_Temple_Group? --Quasar (talk) 22:58, 1 March 2016 (CST)

That's it!  Dunno why I couldn't find any of those threads based on kmxexii's description.  If others actually have the stomach to draft such articles, then I'll certainly leave them to it.  Thanks much.    Ryan W (talk) 22:38, 2 March 2016 (CST)

Word puzzles[edit]

Watson/Collins: Void + Ship + sequel = Voidship 2 at Doomworld/idgames No idea for the second; it seems the first two words would have to be "Awful Lost" and there's nothing that starts like this on the idgames archive. --Gez (talk) 14:22, 7 April 2017 (CDT)

Maybe a year or so back, idgames reviews switched to have newest first. So you're actually after "The Lost." Out of the Robinsons' works, I found project slipgate. The closest I could find that combines all three was The Lost Gate. --Eris Falling (talk) 15:00, 7 April 2017 (CDT)
Damn — you could have uploaded my brain and I wouldn't have seen that.  Using it as an example, I can find "The" + "Lost" + The Abandoned Base = The Lost Base, but that seems too obscure for the author to believe it was a fair challenge.  I think we'll go with yours.    Ryan W (usually gone) 17:03, 7 April 2017 (CDT)

Chord, Kaiser[edit]

The three Chord-y redlinks can be replaced by their canonical Chord NG, Chord G and Chord 3 versions; and "How Not to Be Seen" with How Not To Be Seen!.

The 2013 entry for "Untitled #2" should point to Untitled 2, "Halo of Wonders" to Halo Of Wonders, "Town of Witchcraft" to Town Of Witchcraft, "Strife: Return of The Order" to Return of The Order, and "Strife: Day of the Acolyte" to Day of the Acolyte.

In all cases the search terms page has the only link to them, so redirects seem unnecessary, but that's your call. --Xymph (talk) 07:17, 28 August 2018 (CDT)

Another one: Classic Episode 2: Singularity Complex -> The Classic Episode, Part 2. --Xymph (talk) 10:46, 11 September 2018 (CDT)

  • Chord: fixed.  I'm doing this without checking TITLEPICs or anything, so in the year 71853 when I reach the third-party walkthroughs, I may ping you and Eris again.  :>
  • How Not To Be Seen: fixed.
  • Untitled: fixed, my fault.  (With the amount of time this took, I didn't notice reserved characters?)
  • Redirects: upon rereading Eris's posts, I agree with you.  We don't say "Heretic: Heretic Treasure Chest", for example, just because it happens to use a non-Doom IWAD.
  • Classic Episode: fixed.
Thank you, as always, for wanting there to be actual game content underneath certain people's pontifications.  :>    Ryan W (living fossil)


Others have expended substantial effort to improve this page, so I'll try to explain.

I don't think I had a clear plan in 2016, and I still don't.  Perhaps I hoped that missing coverage would simply materialize as redlinks, as a side effect of the continued work of the bot and several users creating umbrella articles (who do a great job btw!).  But in hindsight, it seems virtually redundant with the publication.  Awardees and runners-up are as uncontroversial as before, and non-modding topics are as uncertain as before.  I'm sure I was the wrong person to do triage as well; plugged-in community members can immediately separate a joke or a deliberately off-topic proposal from a rising star.

It's been stated that we treat DW as the start and end of historiography, which hopelessly skews our scope discussions.  Without rehashing that debate, I'll note how many other general references have gone dark since the 1990s.  Those of us who weren't involved back then, and can't afford to travel the world scouring offline media, sometimes feel confined.  If I were starting this list today, I would advance one subtopic at a time in an RFC: speedrunning, development and advanced features, mapping tropes/tricks, 1994 mods, 1995 mods, ...  That wouldn't immediately solve the problem, but the smaller territory might make it easier to focus (myself included) and establish methods for locating specialized/archival sources in each area.  Ideally, after enough iterations, trends might emerge that finally pointed us toward a general guideline.  See these threads for some related discussion about WADs.

Anyway, my offer to move the list to someone else's space stands, if you think it can eventually lead somewhere.  Currently, what I'm hearing from the feedback is that it mainly serves to bloat Special:WantedPages.  :(  Thanks again to the contributors above, for their attention to detail and for seeing implications I missed.    Ryan W (living fossil) 01:23, 15 December 2019 (CST)

> mainly serves to bloat Special:WantedPages
Just my two cents but if people have gotten so religious about trying to empty that list out that they'd rather important topics not be linked (thus indicating that they are in fact, wanted pages) than to get around to creating the pages, then the whole effort has become wrong-headed and is damaging to the wiki. --Quasar (talk) 09:49, 16 December 2019 (CST)
I agree, although I believe most of the stuff that was linked only from this page was stuff that wasn't really article worthy. That said, it would have been nice to do a review specifically of that stuff before deletion, in case there was something we missed. --Eris Falling (talk) 06:28, 17 December 2019 (CST)
I'll make a list, once the special page catches up.  Ryan W (living fossil) 17:11, 17 December 2019 (CST)


I recommend ignoring these.  We have a page for every ceremony now, with its redlinks pre-populated.  If a name was linked here but not there, it's most likely another misunderstanding on my part.
