Obsolete?

If you bought the game from Steam, like myself, you can play all from A13 to B19, included A17, which is the version I like the most. The only way this content would really become obsolete is if all other builds were completely removed and we could only play v1.0. This list also contains information for A11 and A12, which a Steam player has no access, however, in the forums I read of players who still use older builds somehow. I don't think this article deserves the maintenance template.

The obsolete template reads "The content of this page has been deprecated or removed completely; it is no longer applicable to current versions."
A17 versions of mods are almost always deprecated by the modder and unmaintained in favour of the new version. They're often hard to find, if not removed entirely. The template also clearly states that the contents are no longer applicable to "current versions" -- which I would argue A17 isn't. It's not a maintenance template: it's a "this page should be considered archived template". It's also a good distinction from the """Up to date list of mods""" --Mehni (talk) 15:31, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes, exactly that. This list contains mods and the Up to date list of mods has all the updated versions. So having a notice of old mods in a list that includes old mods is obvious and redundant... 22:01, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
The obsolete tag isn't redundant at all: the page isn't called "list of obsolete mods", any new visitor to the wiki could reasonably assume an article called "list of mods" to contain up to date information. Before there was just an easy to miss line under a info box, which is not explicit enough. Also note: It's not a list that includes older mods: the entire list consists of obsolete and unsupported mods. --Mehni (talk)
Fair enough, thanks for the replies. 15:02, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
