Arma, Arma2, and Arma2 Operation Arrowhead are all standalone games. The criteria is whether it is on IMDB or other reputable websites like IGN or Gamespot.

Wow, BORAT is in the documentary catagory? And Waltz with Bashir looks more like it's just non-fiction, and not a documentary.

Shouldn't Mail Call be deleted then? Isn't Mail Call also the largest page on the site?

Mail Call was an early entry that came in under the wire. Only Mail Call and perhaps ONE OTHER documentary series was grandfathered in before we started clamping down on documentaries, so it cannot be touched, however, we have put the kebosh on all NEW documentaries. It started getting ridiculous when we were just listing weapons that were taken from real life NEWS FOOTAGE.

As you said Mail Call was very well done, but any 'reality show' or documentary page had better be BRILLIANT or else they go!

I believe the Weaponology page should be deleted, not just because it is a documentary, but because it is also lacking content in terms of screencaps and descriptions.

Not necessarily. We're willing to allow popular mods for popular games, usually. The only thing we object to is when some totally anonymous mod developer who's making new levels and weapons in his spare time decides to use our site to promote his own project that most people have never heard of.

The page for 'The War Briefing' (an episode of PBS Frontline) should also be deleted on the basis of being a documentary and having no content:

DS game, so no chance we'll ever see screenshots. Two weapons, neither of them real, neither of them resemble real weapons, and only one of them even sharing a name with a real weapon. And it's been seven months, and no one has bothered to correct the capitalization.

Did this one make it under the wire? If not I'll be glad to delete it, but I need to make sure. There has been some work put into it.
