To Do Lists

Category:Needs work - list of patterns and game descriptions that exist but need more work

Special:WantedPages - pages that are linked to but do not exist

Pattern Suggestion List - for lists of new patterns to create

Special:ShortPages - list for detecting short pattern descriptions

Category:Unwanted pages - list of pages that should have no links to them (read: they only exist to help finding the links to them)

Category:Stub - pages that are known to be too short

People's specific work pages

To show that a page has been left half done you might want to flag it by having it in a specific category:

Changes in how we write


To make the patterns consistent it is probably good that we have a common Vocabulary.

Pattern Retrieval Method suggestions

We take a bunch of games known for innovation, published after 2004 (publication of the original GDP) and see if we can extract patterns out of their novel features. (Hidden Traitor? Simultaneous limited realtime planning? "Max Payne-dilemma-solution-something"?)

Old patterns?

I'd suggest we put in all the old patterns manual, it will take more time but then we actually make sure we go through each patterns as we put them in. And may not all patterns should be in the updated collection... --Staffan Björk 16:53, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Game Descriptions

I'd suggeset that all games mentioned as examples get their own page. Besides just basic information about the game this could also include brief analysis of the game mentioning the most important patterns. --Staffan Björk 15:43, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
