Most popular and most wanted

These two lists apeear on the main page, but their meaning is explained nowhere in Strategywiki. I suppose they could be "most visited" and/or "most edited", and even if that is the case, which is which? I asked to some search engine websites (DuckDuckGo, Google), but they are no help, either.

I am asking it just for the pleasure to know. Thanks in advance for any answer :) --Abacos (talk) 13:43, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Most popular is the guide with the most page views. It's based on the DPL query. Most wanted is the guide that most people have hit the "edit" links in for the week. It's supposed to be updated by my bot, but it hasn't been run in some time. -- Prod (talk) 16:37, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Games with an updated version

I never thought about this, but I suppose it would be wise to ask. I am currently working on setting up pages for the Senran Kagura series, and am confused about what to do with the first game in the series, Shoujotachi no Shinei (Portrait of Girls, as it is literally translated). It never crossed my mind, but Senran Kagura Burst is the updated re-release of the game that added a story for Homura and the then-Hebijo girls on top of the main story from Portrait of Girls. I don't know whether to count both of them as separate games, but combine them into a singular Table of Contents or if I should scrap the page for Shoujotachi no Shinei and just do Burst. - JeffMandM (talk) 17:17, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

It's kind of up to you how you'd like to proceed. Making two separate guides when most of the content is identical isn't very ideal. You can see how we dealt with stuff like this in the Dragon Warrior III guide, or the Super Mario Bros. 2 guide, which had to take Super Mario Advance into account. Or you can treat it like an expansion pack, similar to how we structured the Diablo guide. You have a couple of choices, just look around the site to see how other games tackled the problem, and choose the approach that seems most suitable to you. Procyon 01:38, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
