I need some help at the wiki
« on: March 15, 2013, 01:56:58 PM »
I just created a page for 'Family Games,' a CD containing some pirated software (including Bubble Bobble.) However, I called it 'Action Games' by mistake.  :$

Can someone fix the title for me so I can create the page for Action Games?

Done. ;)

However, the article itself brings up an issue. This 'Family Games' thing seems to be one of those shareware compilations and I don't think those really qualify as bootlegs unless the games included are the full versions.

I'd imagine the Bubble Bobble game probably counts as such though if it's an unofficial clone of the original or something.

Yeah, I was wondering about that... It says it's shareware, but the games are full versions. They're all unlicensed clones of other games. And Bubble Bobble is exactly the same as the original, but with updated graphics.

Is it suitable? If so, I have three more articles to make... :)

It sounds good to me, although I do want to check the subsequent articles just to be sure. ;)

Hoo boy, it got screwed up. I created the Action Games page and it got deleted. Says it was moved to Family Games. Is this because you fixed the name?
Never mind, I was looking at the original page. The new one is called Action Games (PC).
