Scenarios may deserve their own category some day... but for now, we have enough to do. MrHen 23:54, 16 Oct 2006 (CDT)

more to expand this list with...

At the Lh'owon Ar'kives there are a number of maps/scenarios that seem ready-to-go under A1. Great fodder for this list! ⇔ ChristTrekker 22:00, 18 Apr 2007 (CDT)

ratings

I'm trying to think of a way we can include "automatic" ratings in scenario articles. What I want to do is let any registered Traxian submit a rating for a scenario, and have that automatically included into the overall rating for that scenario. This would likely be handled by an optional MediaWiki module, because I'm almost positive the standard setup isn't capable of this sort of thing. ⇔ ChristTrekker 09:32, 20 Apr 2007 (CDT)

I do not think this is appropriate material for Traxus. In my opinion, Traxus should be facts only with as little opinion as possible. Ratings are grand, but they are really hard to maintain while keeping the numbers useful. What I think would work better is to just list the Fileball rating for particular scenarios and link to the rating system there. 17:00, 23 Apr 2007 (CDT)
Probably right. Since fileball already has theirs going, it would take a lot of effort to catch up, and we're just not that big. ⇔ ChristTrekker 09:34, 24 Apr 2007 (CDT)

Redundant?

Is it necessary to have a list of all scenario articles here, when going to Category:Scenarios automatically lists them already? If you want to keep a sorted list with descriptions, a better title might be "List of scenarios", leaving this article for an explanation of the term and its history. --Andrew Nagy 00:17, 11 August 2007 (CDT)

If it's not obvious from MrHen's comment at the very top of this discussion page, this article was created before such a category existed. I like that it sorts the scenarios into classes / types, but there's only one real class of scenario here and I suppose we wouldn't be losing all that much if it got tossed. You guys mark it for deletion if you feel it's necessary, and I'll deal with it. --Ecpeterson 10:45, 12 August 2007 (CDT)
In patrolling the remainder of the edits, I saw that you guys have a category set up for things like total conversions already. In that case, I see no problem whatsoever with trashing this article. Again, you mark it, I'll deal with it. --Ecpeterson 10:49, 12 August 2007 (CDT)
I would say that the list is unnecessary. This article should be about Scenarios in general (provide a history behind them, talk about Bungie's philosophy regarding user-created content, the current status of the community, where can scenarios be found?) MrHen. 12:31, 17 August 2007 (CDT)
This article should be kept because the category can only contain articles that exist. I suppose it is an option to create a stub article for a scenario, but some may prefer to simply list it. If the only thing you know about something is its existence, creating a completely empty stub is kind of silly. ⇔ ChristTrekker 13:33, 6 November 2007 (CST)
Maybe something like "Requested articles/Scenarios" would be useful for that? --Andrew Nagy 17:41, 7 November 2007 (CST)
Having "links to nowhere" automatically adds them to Special:Wantedpages. ☺ ⇔ ChristTrekker 15:11, 8 November 2007 (CST)

what constitutes a "total conversion"

Is it simply a playable multi-level storyline? Does is require new graphics or sounds or anything, or can a total conversion be made completely from "Bungie stock" components? I guess I considered a scenario itself to be a playable storyline game, as opposed to a mere map collection, and the term "total conversion" connoted a serious overhaul in multiple areas. How do others use the term? I guess it is fairly widely used in the gaming community, but I am not a serious gamer. ⇔ ChristTrekker 13:40, 6 November 2007 (CST)

Asked again at Category talk:Total conversions. ⇔ ChristTrekker 08:39, 31 March 2008 (CDT)

And now we have a total conversion article. I'm not sure that it answers the question to everyone's satisfaction, though. ⇔ ChristTrekker 13:27, 1 December 2008 (CST)
