IGN dates

It seems that IGN "localises" the dates depending on where the page is accessed from. Accessing from the UK gives a date of December 31st for Batman Returns, but when using a US proxy I got the date of May 19th that you referenced. Not an issue as you linked an archive of the page, and the Internet Archive is based in the US, but could be an issue if someone wanted to reference the UK page. That "UK" date is obviously a placeholder though, it released in September going by the official Gallup charts.Pirate Dragon (talk) 11:50, 15 April 2021 (EDT)
Interesting. Thank you for the heads-up about IGN too! I wonder if there’s a way to stop it, or archive a copy that won’t change the date. Good find with those posts too, I really like the idea of using these to help sort out release dates ;) CartridgeCulture (talk) 16:42, 15 April 2021 (EDT)

Image tagging

Can you please tag the files before uploading them? Just paste the respective tags on the "Summary" box before uploading them... best regards...--Asagoth (talk) 09:07, 22 April 2021 (EDT)

Anytime, you're super welcome! And I'll absolutely start tagging my uploads. My bad! I didn't even know tagging was a thing. I'll go back and tag my older uploads too. ;)
As always I genuinely appreciate the help, thanks again Asagoth.

Just letting you know, we use wapuro romaji for Japanese names, so long "o" becomes "ou" and long "u" becomes "uu". There are very few instances where a page's title isn't plain ascii. - Hivebrain (talk) 22:08, 30 May 2021 (EDT)

Got it, thanks for the heads up. I'll start putting Refs under external links too :) CartridgeCulture (talk) 01:59, 31 May 2021 (EDT)

Company logos

It's unlikely we're going to maintain categories for every company, so I'd just do


when it comes to categorisation. That'll throw it in Category:Company logos -Black Squirrel (talk) 10:48, 10 September 2021 (EDT)

Got it, that'll actually be easier. Thanks :)

Talk:David Bowie

if these pages are just going to be "xxx worked on one third-party game", might be easier to let Wikipedia handle that -Black Squirrel (talk) 06:24, 21 October 2021 (EDT)

ok. suppose my reasoning was the "we want to cover everything sega-relevant here and not elsewhere" thing. do we only cover third-party staff if they've done a certain amount of games? or if they have a specific amount of relevant development history/contributions/etc? either way my bad, not trying to make any noise here :( CartridgeCulture (talk) 06:54, 21 October 2021 (EDT)
It's more about whether there's enough content to justify a page - the Omikron page will already detail David Bowie's involvement, and since he didn't do anything else Sega-related as far as I can tell, all a dedicated David Bowie page is going to offer is "worked on Omikron", i.e. we're just duplicating the Sega-related information.
Michael Jackson, meanwhile, has been in games, has been consulted on things, has inspired certain Sega products, etc.. So it's about making a judgement on what is worthwhile. -Black Squirrel (talk) 07:19, 21 October 2021 (EDT)
that makes sense, got it. im sorry again for the extra pages, i'll get the necessary edits made and flag things for deletion. CartridgeCulture (talk) 07:24, 21 October 2021 (EDT)
