I thought I had read somewhere that Wookieepedia is not a video game guide. However, I found no such language in WP:NOT. I was about to remove the "Upgrade Codes" section from Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Live Fire, but I thought I better be able to justify it.
Am I confusing this with a Wikipedia policy? Could anybody please clarify or point me to where this "policy" is located? Thanks! - Esjs(Talk) 20:32, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
I know of no official policy for this, but if a section about game cheats is too long, I usually remove it. If its just a small mention of a code in a character behind the scenes section though, I usually let it be. OLIOSTER(talk) 02:14, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, oddly enough, I can't find a formal policy either, though I may not have looked in the right place. Still, even if unwritten, it's been part of how Wookieepedia has handled things since very nearly the beginning (see, e.g., these comments dating to October '05 stating such a decision was already made), and this shows it has widely and regularly been applied in numerous Wookieepedia decisions. So while there's no page in our policies telling us where the mess hall is, we still follow the crowd at chow time. jSarek 11:09, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, after checking Wikipedia's policies, I now believe I was confusing us with them. Just to clarify, I want to distinguish the difference between game mechanics in IU articles (undesired as per precedence), versus "how-to" descriptions (cheats, walk-throughs) in OOU articles (this is where I am uncertain). Wikipedia explicitly forbids the latter, which was the source of my confusion. - Esjs(Talk) 16:22, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Per jSarek, I don't believe this policy was ever officially adopted. —Xwing328(Talk) 01:48, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
