Talk:Osu!

On the removal consideration

Please don't remove this page for the time being.

  • Many people run osu! on Linux and there is a lock of proper documentation as most of the information on running it smoothly is scattered over the internet. This page is still a work-in-progress and I planned on adding more information later.
  • There are efforts in the AUR to maintain a runnable version of osu!. Of all places, wouldn't it be best to place it here?
  • There even is an open source version, which could also be added to make it more like RuneScape, focusing it away from Windows if that's your problem.

Furthermore, given how this game tends to require a more sophisticated setup compared to the average game, the Arch Wiki is an excellent resource to reference those resources. Irunarchbtw (talk) 06:23, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

You are helping to scatter this information over the internet, see AppDB page regarding Osu! for yourself. Most of stuff there applies to Arch Linux and even has pacman commands.
It is not a problem that you haven't added more information to article. Problem is you create another source of information that is equally incomplete instead of contribution to AppDB page. If you consider AppDB page incomplete, then help work on it.
This article does not document open source version, and even if some part of it did, Wine version should have been documented on AppDB.
This article is most likely will get out of date as soon as you lose interest in it and AppDB will be more complete and up-to-date, like already happened with all Windows software documented on ArchWiki. I doubt anybody is interested in fixing style issues in article that is effectively going away sooner than later. AppDB has no style requirements and will be more fitting. I want to point out again that AppDB exists primarily for purpose of documenting every little bit of running Windows software on Linux. It has test reports, comments, HowTO/Guides. Please just use it.
I'm going to archive this article according to procedure after week (page content will be accessible anyway from page history), or if you want you can move(rename) it to your user namespace as User:Irunarchbtw/Osu! and do whatever you want with it there.
