Deletion discussion 1[edit]

Outcome: keep

Even with our relaxed proposed scope policy, this game isn't mentioned anywhere but sites that host the game. Due to the thousands of flash games uploaded every day, I think the "site mentions" criterion is a little stricter, meaning a site that isn't deriving revenue from hosting flash games or this particular game should be the one mentioning it. Please post a link to a news site or gaming site that mentions this game if you can find one. — najzereT 05:29, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for noticing my effort. I found the game and started playing it, and found literally hundreds of walkthrough videos on YouTube for "Super Mario 63" and a few specific answers like http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_defeat_the_goomba_boss_in_mario_63 , but no text walkthrough. So there's clearly demand and interest in a walkthrough for it. I was excited to find a place for strategy guides, so I put my text here. Let's compare Super Mario 63 with another Flash game with a guide on your web site, say Acno's Energizer. Googling for "Super Mario 63" (include the quotes to search for the entire phrase) returns 702,000 results while "Acno's Energizer" returns only 97,200 resuls. So, SM63 is hella more notable. But if this doesn't meet your criteria... I understand. Do you know of another suitable wiki that can host a walkthrough? -- Skierpage 05:53, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Google for "Super Mario 63" news produced
etc. -- Skierpage 06:00, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for finding some mention of the game. I also noticed the large amount of hits for walkthroughs of the game, so I'm glad you could verify its notability. Cheers, — najzereT 17:26, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Delete discussion 2[edit]

The delete nomination is inappropriate, because this guide has already been vetted for scope. As I told NMH when he wanted to include Spelunky, it's the scope policy that should be changed. It's pointless to debate this game's deletion when the larger issue that will settle it is currently being discussed on the staff lounge. — najzereT 07:04, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

It's a warning that the guide may disappear from here. -- Prod (Talk) 14:11, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Move off strategywiki[edit]

I noticed there's a wikia wiki devoted to games by this developer and they're looking into putting together a guide for this game. The previous discussion about scope mentioned above was archived. I still feel hosting guides for fan games expands our scope beyond what is sustainable for this wiki. -- Prod (talk) 01:59, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

My only counter point is to ask what distinguishes this game from an indie game BESIDES the fact that it makes unauthorized use of licensed characters? If you remove this game, what's the line for other indie titles? What is the inclusion qualifier? I'm not necessarily for keeping this guide, I just want to be clear. Procyon 02:49, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
