Interview

[edit]

I interviewed Jonty Haywood via email, as stated in the article. --Nzgabriel | Talk 00:58, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply


Title

[edit]

While intruiging, I think a different title would suit Wikinews better. --SVTCobra 01:02, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Change it if you want, that's what I came up with so I'm not going to change. You're free to do whatever you want, that's the power of a wiki. --Nzgabriel | Talk 02:09, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Claims

[edit]

What, besides the interviewee, substatiates the claim that this a "widely spreading and popular game"? --SVTCobra 01:03, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Exactly that, the interviewee. Again, change the text to be more neutral if you want. --Nzgabriel | Talk 02:09, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Huh

[edit]

I read The Game which leaves me only more confused, it sounds like a giant rickrolling. --SVTCobra 01:41, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

I am also confused. I was about to delete the article as vandalism, purely by the title until i changed it and I read the article and saw the edit history. Nice article but I am not sure I follow it. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 06:18, 7 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

It was an inside joke among some social groups, but this site killed it. (see below) 86.144.215.101 07:33, 8 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

not fucking again

[edit]

We had this bloody useless article a couple of days ago. It would appear that that article has been deleted. --202.7.166.175 00:43, 8 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

For several years, some form of "The Game" was played quite frequently among some social circles, usually 20 to 30 year olds in England & the U.S. It was a sort of real life "social networking", i.e. "no, you don't want me to tel you about the game, then you'd have to play", "what? are you sure you want me to tell you about the game?", etc. No one I know who "played the game" ever liked this site. In other words, your not interviewing a meme's creator or propagator, your interviewing the guy who made it boring. In-fact, I would nominate this article for deletion, but I'm not sure that "interviewing the wrong guy" is grounds. 86.144.215.101 07:32, 8 June 2008 (UTC)Reply
