Battlefield_3 (history - links - logs) Edit

Simply put, this article has no place on the Call of Duty Wiki. It is related to a completely different game series, and I am quite frankly astonished that it hasn't been deleted already.

Let's re-write this then: no reason to keep this page, since the only reason the exists is to prevent fanboys creating the page, but since the title can be protected I can't see why we have this. - Spetsnaz Logo MW2 MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 20:55, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting delete Delete — The redirect page isn't necessary. Why don't we make a redirect page for Pac Man, Mario and some other unrelated video games while we're at it? ShortRoundMcFly 02:37, November 2, 2011 (UTC)

Unrelated? BF3 is possibly CoD's biggest competition. The Wikia Contributor T | C | E | Q03:56, November 2, 2011 (UTC)
That doesn't make it notable enough for an article. Sgt. S.S. 13:23, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
Even though it's the rival of CoD, this is Call of Duty wiki. We cover things about Call of Duty. The community things are not covered, unless extremely notable or under certain circumstances, but BF3 falls under neither one. It's like making a page for Penis because some people search for it: people know that they're searching for an article (for some reason) that does not exist, because there's no logic in it. They should be prepared to end up on the "Search results for "Battlefield 3"". Why do we have the article? Because people search for it. Again, they should be aware that an article for a completely different gameseries is not found on CoD wiki. - Spetsnaz Logo MW2 MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 13:43, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

The title can be protected ([create=sysop]) so it can't be created if it's deleted. - Spetsnaz Logo MW2 MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 13:45, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — Since there is a large amount of rivalry between the games, which I think is mentioned at least once on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 page, I believe this is relevant. I don't see the harm in an interwiki link.Personal AdvancedRookie Sig2 20:51, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Winterwiki? - Spetsnaz Logo MW2 MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 23:02, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — Besides being an interwiki redirect, it is also a sign of good will and amiability between the more level headed members of the communities. The Wikia Contributor T | C | E | Q03:45, November 2, 2011 (UTC)

Comments/Questions Edit

Pictogram voting comment Comment — @Damac: I'd certainly be interested in knowing why people are searching for BF3 on the CoD Wiki. :S Sgt. S.S. 20:44, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

We don't know? We're not a team of psychiatrists who can sense people's brain activity through the internet.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  20:47, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
I never suggested that. What I am suggesting is that it is senseless and illogical to put an interwiki link for one game series on a wiki for a completely different series. You wouldn't, say, go to the L.A. Noire Wiki and start adding links about Portal 2, would you? The same logic applies here. Sgt. S.S. 20:52, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
COD:NOT  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  20:54, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
That does not apply here, since I was using the L.A. Noire Wiki as an example. Sgt. S.S. 20:59, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
Eh, no. You said "The same logic applies here". COD:NOT.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  21:00, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
By which I meant, the same logic (or rather, lack of logic) for putting an interwiki link for one game series on a wiki for a completely different series. Sgt. S.S. 21:09, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
Jumping in here real quick. MW3 and BF3 are major competitors in the same genre of video games. Portal 2 and L.A Noire are... two games released in 2011? Seems like the only connection. KUDLq.png 21:11, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment — How is this "troll prevention"? Sgt. S.S. 19:21, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

They cant create the page. Thats how it was started. It was then repurpoused. Phillycj 19:31, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
It's possible to protect pages from being created in the first place. US Army WWII MSGTSgt. ChiafriendRifleman 20:44, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
And admins can delete them, too. Sgt. S.S. 21:47, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment — Guys,we have 2 options.The first is to keep the article.Second is to delete the redirect for good and make the title protected. TheGuy299 16:44, December 2, 2011 (UTC)

You know, that's kinda obvious. - Spetsnaz Logo MW2 MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 18:50, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Comment — If I can point out, I used Ctrl+F on the Search Digest and scrolled through about 2000 most used search phrases. I still didn't find "Battlefield 3" or "BF3". This kinda tells that it's not searched anymore in a large scale, because the fight between BF3 and MW3 has pretty much gone down to almost non-existent compared to pre-release, so "it's searched a lot" isn't a valid reason. I think we could safely remove this now, and the few people that search for it for some reason would know why it doesn't exist here (because this is Call of Duty wiki). The other reason to why it should be kept is that some fanboys wouldn't excessively recreate the page, but the title can be protected ([create=autoconfirmed/sysop]; user without them rights can't create it). And the last time I checked, mainspace isn't for community-related things unless it is extremely related to CoD, which BF3 isn't. - Spetsnaz Logo MW2 MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 14:38, December 15, 2011 (UTC)
