Re: Guidelines

I'd like to have some sort of discussion about the guidelines for community modifications. Not that I expect there to be too many more new mods these days for Portal 1, but for Portal 2 there may be still a few coming and the current requirements listed are vague and the still "To be expanded" listing doesn't help anybody. Specifically, I've always sort of taken issue with Conversion and, to a lesser extent, Aperture: The Other Wing having articles. Conversion especially because the page, for a very long time, read like an advertisement and the mod itself never released; no demo, no final release, no leak, nothing. AtOW, on the other hand, has shown little/no signs of life to begin with and, again, I think was given an article without thought for if it was really relevant. I had been intending on giving the Portal 1 remake mod "Alive and Kicking" its own page at some point, since it has a demo, was Greenlit, and as of Feb 4th was confirmed to still being worked on, but wanted to tackle this issue of guidelines first. Any thoughts on the topic, anybody? ~Sven~ (talk) 03:49, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

I think you should go with your own subjective judgement at this point. Most likely, no one reading this page will have a better feeling for what mods are noteworthy or not. As you noted, notability is also something that changes over time, and I think you're the most in-tune person to know those things.
This is probably not the best objective criteria you were looking for but I think it's workable... Heh. — Wind 06:42, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
