GTA 2[edit]

I'm not sure why you insist the release date for the game boy color port of Grand theft Auto 2 be changed to 1999 despite overwhelming evidence to it being released in 2000. You are not being helpful by putting up false information and changing it back once it's corrected to spite me. Jericho735 (talk) 15:32, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Jericho735, with "overwhelming evidence", do you just mean the copyright notice? Because that easily fails WP:V. You previously claimed that the source from 1999 was actually from 2000. If this actually is true, there will certainly be a reliable secondary source that backs this up. IceWelder [] 15:35, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

I remember it releasing in 2000. Most sources, including IGN (the product page, and their review of the game), GameFAQs, Mobygames, etc. have all listed December 2000 as its release. I just took a closer look at the article you had linked, and the October and November release dates (in Europe and the United states, respectively) are the release dates for the *original* Grand Theft Auto on game boy color. I'm not trying to come across as a jerk, but that is simply oversight by the writer of the article. I can post sources if you'd like; I'm sure on this. Jericho735 (talk) 15:55, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Jericho735, thanks for the hint. The archived version of IGN's review actually had it in verbatim: "Release Date: December 2000". I'm curious as to how Eurogamer reviewed it in November that year if the December date was correct, but at least WP:V is met. Aside from this, GameFAQs/MobyGames are not reliable per WP:USERG.

IceWelder No problem; cheers! Jericho735 (talk) 02:08, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Parent parameter on SIE subsidiaries[edit]

Hi I noticed you did some maintainance for SIE WWS and related article (which I thank you for). However, I know I previously brought up the parent parameters on the studio articles [1] [2] and agree there should be consistency throughout those related article in regards to the parent parameter. However, I was wondering why you decided to conclude listing Sony Interactive Entertainment as opposed to SIE Worldwide Studios [3] [4]? Kind Regards  Spy-cicle💥  Talk? 14:47, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Spy-cicle, as I explained before, I prefer WWS as it is a separate division under SIE. However, Poklane has changed this unilaterally on several articles after our chat, so I made it uniform for now, pending further discussion. It should not hinder your Media Molecule GA, though. Regards, IceWelder [] 16:12, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Ah understandable. I mean just for reference I know the studios report to WWS but are they legally owned by WWS or they legally owned by SIE itself? Not too fussed either but might helpful to know if there is a future discussion. Regards  Spy-cicle💥  Talk? 22:12, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Updating instead of uploading new[edit]

Hi, I saw you updated an SVG here: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bohemia_Interactive&action=history Instead of uploading a new image. If I want to do this in the future, how would I go about it, I don't know how to replace image files directly so any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Rmoostet (talk) 12:54, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Rmoostet, thanks for message. You can overwrite files by navigating to the their pages (usually achieved by clicking the image, then "More details" on the bottom-right) and then using the "Upload a new version of this file" function below the file history. From there, the upload process is the same as for uploading a new file. Regards, IceWelder [] 13:51, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
IceWelder, ah, I now know how to do this, thank you for your help! Rmoostet (talk) 02:15, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
