What should be put in the "Header text" column of the "Hand-Held Device Emulators" table? I can't find any intuitive interpretation of what should be written in that column, so a clarification would be nice :) --Oniondreams (talk) 11:05, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

@Oniondreams I'm not sure. I've just been copying table entries as i went along and that probably how it ended up there with no name. But it's the same as where the others have "BIOS Rom Required?" i think. However, it might probably be wise to switch to using Templates? It would make it easier to add to, maintain and change the tables in the future i guess. I'm not very familiar with Templating yet though. But check it out.

@Oniondreams I've briefly tested using Libreoffice to make tables easier. But, not yet sure how to get a clean formatting out of it, or how to make those tables sortable. But check out https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/16678/how-to-export-to-mediawiki-language/ if your interested in checking it out. But so far Wikimedia Templates seems to be a better option --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 19:13, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
@Oniondreams I've now renamed it from "Header text" to "BIOS ROM required". Thanks for the headsup btw, but remember it's a wiki, so any improvements or idea you see fit to make, go for it :) --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 20:21, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Consider Wikimedia Templates-based organizing of the page? More info: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:A_quick_guide_to_templates https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Templates https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Advanced_templates --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 20:24, 24 November 2016 (UTC)



Misc. notes by page editors

I think it might be smart to keep the list(s) of emulators down to those emulators that are pretty much known to be more or less complete and mostly fully working --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 19:14, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps a 'Back-end' column for the emulators would be smart to have, with listing as 'OpenGL' and 'SDL'.. --Duck Hunt-Pr0 (talk) 22:03, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Is there any real need for the year column? --TheBoss (talk) 00:28, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
