There's no reason this content can't go in Wikipedia if it's just articles about games as opposed to a wiki for playing games. Angela 08:43, 4 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As I suggested in the metapub, the wiki could include gamer experiences and expert reviews (essays, not promotional), for instance. It could perhaps furthermore be used to develop game software. Guido den Broeder 09:57, 4 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree with Angela, wikia should be the best place for this kind of project--Nick1915 - all you want 10:50, 4 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree with Angela (talk · contribs) as well, and EVula (talk · contribs) said something quite similar at Metapub. Cirt (talk) 12:04, 4 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Creo que esta bueno tener este portal, y que el mismo referencie en todo caso contenido de wikipedia, pero este portal resumiria todo lo existente sobre el tema.

Angela makes a good point that Wikia would be a nifty place for a wiki for playing games. I'm not positive, but I believe that Angela draws a salary from and owns stock in Wikia, Inc., so that would be a very special blessing for her, indeed. I also understand that on Wikia, there is a lot of advertising, and all of the revenues are kept by the management. There is another site where editors can embed their own advertisements, if they choose, and they (amazingly) keep 100% of their ad revenues. Some people on Meta try to snuff out any mention of that site, though... even while Angela embeds her external links to Wikia, as seen above. -- Thekohser 02:53, 23 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
