-Thanks for the offer, let me see if there is an intelligent way I can have my bot take care of this. If I can't then help is definitely appreciated!Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 17:16, 10 March 2015 (PDT)
-I was able to code in a bit to create redirects, do let me know if you see any thing the bot misses. -Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 20:08, 10 March 2015 (PDT)
Sounds good! Great job creating a solid foundation for a brand new wiki. It has been fun to watch the bots and other edits in action! -Jason (talk) 20:25, 10 March 2015 (PDT)
-Thanks for all the help, it is much appreciated! -Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 21:18, 10 March 2015 (PDT)
Sure thing! I'm looking forward to future community and project growth (though given your note on the main page I will let you decide when you want to confirm/reject account requests, at least until you are done with the initial setup phase). It will be nice to see other OUYA enthusiasts join, or maybe even have OUYA endorse the project (?). Keep on truckin'! -Jason (talk) 09:03, 11 March 2015 (PDT)
Update: The bot did a great job creating redirects based on text caps, but I went though the list of pages and created some practical redirects based on minor spacing and punctuation changes. I hope this is helpful. I did not move any pages so the bot should not be impacted. See Special:ListRedirects if you wish to review. (And, of course, feel free to delete or move pages as needed, or let me know if I need to make any corrections.) -Jason (talk) 12:06, 11 March 2015 (PDT)
- Thanks for the update, I'll have to see if I can integrate those changes into the bot so it can be automated in the future. Perhaps regex might be prudent in those cases, if not the only way to do it heh. Thanks for the help! I'm hoping to get more or the non-game/app pages fleshed out soon, especially that of the hardware and OS. -Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 12:21, 11 March 2015 (PDT)
-Hey Eldon :) There is a thread on ouyaforum from when the playlist was posted with all the games listed on it :) So I tagged everything that was on there (Although, one of the (Crystal Picnic) was I guess taken off the store). It'd be nice if there was an archive of some of the other playlist, but I haven't been able to find any.
No worries and yea that would be great. I wish they kept the items that have been removed from the store in the list or somewhere as well. -Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 11:51, 14 March 2015 (PDT)
  • Just another thought. I wonder if it would be possible (if useful) to create a page or pages for these videos posted by OUYA to YouTube. Or, perhaps some of them could be added by hand to relevant pages. Below is how to embed a YouTube video, in case you are not familiar:
"OUYA Presents: Mousecraft" by OUTA (December 5, 2014) at YouTube:


Feel free to disregard if embedding YouTube videos here is not of interest. Keep up the great work! It's been great watching this project grow so quickly. -Jason (talk) 12:12, 17 March 2015 (PDT)
Very interesting! I just got the app/game images to upload with the bot so that could be the next thing I work on. I'm pretty sure I could just scrape all the links from the youtube page as well. Cheers for the suggestion! -Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 17:54, 18 March 2015 (PDT)


You added "Press Releases" to the Main page. I was thinking more along the lines of news articles by various publications, more so than press releases in the traditional sense, but maybe there could also be a page for Press Releases specifically if OUYA releases any? -Jason (talk) 15:24, 23 March 2015 (PDT)

I see what you mean and agree, those should be two different sections! -Eldon.McGuinness (talk) 15:55, 23 March 2015 (PDT)
