No-CD fixes on certain games?

Blakegripling ph (talkcontribs)

I'd like to ask if this is an acceptable fix, especially since the game's CD check is more of a space-saving measure than a copy-protection scheme as it was typical of children's games of the time. If it was in the case of games such as GTA Vice City where the game is run straight off the hard drive, but the original CD is used for authentication, then that's a different story.

Sorry it took this long to respond!

After some talking over with Soeb, I took the time earlier to write up the wiki's stance on the matter in the Editing guide's Wiki Policy sub-section. Please take the time to read it over when you can.

In your particular case, such a fix would not be allowed.

Broken Wikipedia Link to "Edit War"

Cptmold (talkcontribs)

I can't find a way to edit it myself, but "Edit warring" isn't a page. You're probably looking for Wikipedia's rules on "Edit warring, which is actually on a different page called "Wikipedia:Edit warring".

Other than that, good article. I feel a bit stupid for being this nitpicky, but whatever, it's what wikis are for!

No worries, and thanks! We were preparing this in another place, forgot that we'd need 2 prefixes to get to the correct page on WP.
