Explaining my reverts so I'm not just abusing admin status:

30df25's motivation seemed to be consistency- giving each poker project it's own page, and linking them separately through through the disambiguation.

However, this seems to have come at the cost of removing actual information and links to resources for the win32 and python game (focusing the old strip poker page just on the win16 game), and replacing them with simple links to threads in the disambiguation. This is not an improvement (the whole point of a project page would be to save people the trouble of digging through threads). I considered correcting this by moving the missing material to new articles, but there's really not enough information to merit it, and I don't really see how placing a bunch of information that could easily be collected on one page to a bunch of tiny pages is an improvement.

Hence I've reverted to the original arrangement. The information is all pertinent to strip poker, it all belongs on one page. The only reason to break it up would be if the write ups on individual projects grew large enough, or if the author of a specific project wanted to develop their own page (as LionsPhil has). Clarity comes before consistency.

Feel free to discus here or seek me out on irc if you have a good argument as to why things should be set up differently, but for now I'm ruling this isn't broke, and doesn't need fixing.

Miiight have been better to discuss first, but I probably can't throw stones too hard there. I would say it's probably worth Squeegy's poker game having its own article, since it has its own character list, instructions to make them, and such, but ultimately that probably comes down to him.--LionsPhil 20:57, 28 November 2013 (CET)
