I rolled back Aurora's most recent additions because Emily's Inform 7 games of 2006, except for Floatpoint, were Z-code games, not Glulx games. The Z-code ganes of 2006 are on the Z-code Games Released in 2006 page. The recent for the split: the page is too long for the wiki software to handle well. Also, please do not add awards info on these pages. Again, the reason is to try to keep these pages as short as can be managed. -- David Welbourn 17:57, 8 October 2007 (PDT)

It is impossible to know that awards info should not be added by looking at this page. Aurora 18:08, 8 October 2007 (PDT)

Not quite impossible, but I'll grant that it's easy to miss. Near the top where it says "Please use the guidelines in the Games released (style guide) when adding content to these pages", there's a paragraph on that page that begins with "Because of the potentially long length ..." that asks not to add awards info.

I should, I suppose, acknowledge that these are just guidelines that I made up and are not etched in stone forever and ever. If, for example, people really want the awards info in there, we can change the guidelines. Also, I'm flexible enough to allow exceptions to the guidelines on occassion, especially if the game in question doesn't have its own page yet. -- David Welbourn 22:29, 8 October 2007 (PDT)
