I think this page should be used almost like a Franchise page for E3, kind of like a hub to the individual E3 pages.  We shouldn't attach games to this page, as they should only be attached to the specific year they were shown.

Any thoughts?

No offence MB, but the E3 2002 doesnt really sound like a new addition to me.

Or E3 1999. Both of these were here quite some time ago.

There's been some discussion on this topic. Here in this very forum in fact. TheBeast temporarily removed the portion of the FAQ that claimed yearly E3 pages would be acceptable while he waited for a response from the staff.
I don't know if he ever got a response, but it would be best not to create additional pages for E3 and other conferences until we do hear something official.

Well I would assume he means they were created as pages recently. I know at least the E3 2009 concept has been around since the show, but I couldn't tell you about the others. MB, being a mod, could possibly have access to that information.

@dbz1995: E3 1997 - 1999 were created July 2, 2009. E3 2000 - 2006 were created July 3, 2009.

Would "E for All" pages be ok?

@MasterOfPenguins_Zell: That's the API being useful again. :) The API provides some information that Giant Bomb doesn't normally provide, including creation date.

Yeah, I created most of them pretty recently.  Someone else had made this E3 page we're on right now.  I had read the previous thread and thought that it was resolved by the fact that GB staff had added information to the E3 09 page.
