Default Again?!

Hey again all, sorry about all these threads, but I just found that the Wikipedia article has once again been targeted for deletion. I can't imagine why. I mean what more do these people want?! Could someone please put in a screenshot or two? (I kind of don't know how to put one in properly)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nile_online

The debate over deletion:

Non-notable webgame. Only a single reliable source consisting of an interview with the developer in which the game is mentioned. The rest is all trivial or blog coverage. Delete as per WP:WEB and WP:CORP Peephole (talk) 21:31, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

* Note: This debate has been included in the list of video game related deletion discussions. MrKIA11 (talk) 22:23, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
* Keep Weak Keep - In addition to the one on GamersHell, there's also a review interview by GameSetWatch, part of the Gamasutra network; and [Ed. a review at] Macleans.ca, which according to its About page seems pretty reliable. SharkD (talk) 03:52, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
o There are also news items at WorldsInMotion as well as Blue's News and 4Gamer. SharkD (talk) 04:10, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
+ Comment: You call that reviews? Seems more like glorified press releases to me.--Peephole (talk) 04:34, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
# You are correct in that the GameSetWatch article is not a review. Also, I pasted the wrong link. The others are exactly what I said they are. SharkD (talk) 06:22, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
* Merge and redirect to Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile, which is what this is adapted from according to the Worlds in Motion piece, surprised that it's not linked within this article. If what's here is it as far as sources are concerned then there's no reason not to include it in the parent article (the original game was reviewed in all the magazines and is perfectly notable). Ahh, my legs, I'm quadrapilates :S Someoneanother 15:11, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Quick readthrough of the deletion terms. Doesnt look good. The entire page could definitely be considered advertisement which is against their terms. It has little actual information about the game, and most of the arguments the idiot who reported you stated are mostly true. Unless more info is posted, deletion is definetly something you can expect.

Merging with cotn is unacceptable; they are in no way related.

They are a similar concept and the buildings are related, but that's it. We need screenshots and more of a definite NPOV.

Thank you Reed. If they say the Wall Street Journal isn't notable, then nothing is.

Also, that GameSetWatch interview is actually from Gamasutra:

Good, we're getting more reviews now, let's see what they say about that.

TM is loved by most of us, it's the least we can do for them.

This is the article where I first learned about it. Too bad I didn't think to look at the link for a full week.

Well, most of those are very short user (not editor or contributor) reviews, and some of them just took TM's 1 paragraph press statement and mixed it around.

Well the one from LiveMint is by a WSJ staff writer, Krish Raghav (I checked his about page)

Excellent Tink! Now how should we incorporate them? Unfortunately they mostly aren't very notable to an English-speaking crowd, but maybe they will help out. Unless the people there are completely Amero-centric.
