Deletion Edit

Sorry to see the editing work go to waste, but the current policy is to only allow works developed or recognized by Type-Moon to be on the Wiki. Since BWM is an unrecognized doujin game, I've added it to Category:Delete and will delete it soon if there are no complaints. BTW, "recognized" doujins are original Melty Blood, Fate/Strange Fake, Fate/Kaleid Liner and Take Moon. We have this policy to restrict the wiki content to canon information. --Azaghal 07:04, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

I guess it can be deleted if you find it necessary, but personally I would say that as long as it is somehow related and passes a certain standard of notability (i.e. a seemingly popular game series compared to some minor doujinshi or something) it would be fine to keep it.

Problem would always be establishing a standard of notability. What really is "popular" and how do you measure it? On the other hand, doujins are basically fanfiction, and letting that in would open a can of worms. --Azaghal 21:29, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
I would say Google search results or something would be decent enough to at least confirm popularity. After that, it should just be up to user discretion to confirm if it's relevant to the wiki or not. The only ones I've seen that seem to actually be worth displaying would be this and that fighting game I placed on the template. EGGS 22:45, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
But what makes doujin games more appropriate from doujin manga? Type-Moon Complex by CCC has spawned more fan discussion than BMW and Fatal/Fake, that Hiroyuki "a cat is fine too" doujin had more cultural impact and Kalmia's Fate doujins were so liked by T-M staff he got an offer to draw Fate/Kaleid Liner... Notability by popularity is only good on paper, and only works for sites such as TvTropes where popularity=notability. If we let fan works in, it won't be long until everybody tries adding their favorite doujin and fanfic under the notion of popularity and this and this will become common occurrence. I'm strongly against adding any kind of fanwork or doujins that aren't endorsed or approved by Type-Moon. --Azaghal 23:14, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
That's where discussion on the merits of the inclusion of such articles comes into play. Personally, I find that games seem to give off less of a niche feeling and would be more useful to cover. Though maybe a general list of specifically selected notable fanworks could be included rather than giving them separate articles. Separate sections with brief descriptions would be easier to manage than separate articles, and it could be controlled to only allow ones based upon certain criteria. Either way, I'm not really pushing for this pages's existence that much, so feel free to do whatever you would like. EGGS 23:31, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Well, a single locked article named "Notable Doujins" or something to that end with short descriptions and some kind of nomination process on talk page might be a feasible compromise. Anyhow, I'll delete BMW article but will leave this talk page for reference. --Azaghal 02:27, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
