Greetings all,

I only recently learned of the splendid Wikification of The Cutting Room Floor. It's awesome! I even wanted to add something...

See, way, way, way back I happened to play a beta version of SML2: 6 Golden Coins in the "Nintendo Power Pod" at Ontario Place. It was a bit of a confusing thing at the time; all the zones were blocked off except for the Tree Zone, where all of the Koopas were replaced with snails for some reason.

One of the things I distinctly remember is the eyes, though, as discussed in http://wiki.rustedlogic.net/Super_Mario_Land_2:_6_Golden_Coins . See, instead of a point outside of the tree on the map screen, the second level used to actually be inside the tree stump - and when you stood on it, all you would see would be Mario's blinking eyes staring out from the darkness.

I was all about to add this little description when it occurred to me that filling the site with rumor and hearsay might be undesirable, what with no one ever having found a copy of this beta of SML2.

So is there a policy on this sort of thing?

That's a good question (and damn, now I want that proto). But bleh, I'm not sure. It can definitely go on the talk page, but putting it on the main article page... erugh.

It makes sense, but at the same time with no proof, well...

{{fact}}

Or rather, something like {{unconfirmed}} linking to a page explaining that it can't be, at the moment, proven.

Though, it's about the same level as magazine info, if not less...

{{fact}} was a joke; {{unconfirmed}} would be mbox-sized. Though I suspect we already have something like {{unconfirmed}}.

It might be easier to just say "It's been said that there was (some feature), but there is no video or release to confirm it." and skip the nag box.

"A horrible person". That's what it says. "A horrible person."

We weren't even testing for that.

Or have it on a separate page. Maybe even devote a new namespace to it, like with Proto:.

There's just not enough of this stuff, and keeping it only to the reasonable shit would probably remove damn near all of it.

I don't think we need a separate solution for this yet.
