As far as expansions go, a couple were already approved, Wages of Sin for SiN and Hellfire for Diablo come to mind. But there is a factor which in my opinion doesn't allow us to associate shareware episodes with expansions. Expansions were sold, shareware episodes were not. Not mentioning the fact that noone considers these episodes as separate full games, there's also the fact that abandonware in AB rules implies it was commercially distributed at a time, which shareware was obviously not.

Now this makes things interesting. There's the problem with Commander Keen again. Thus I'd advise we should not make separate pages for every episode, but rather for every batch. Eps 1,2,3 were clearly sold as Commander Keen: Invasion of the Vorticons, and 4 and 5 were Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy! So I'd suggest we review them as 3D Realms themselves distributes them:


...plus the others which were distributed separately (3.5, 6)

Now regarding the aforementioned expansion. Doing reviews for them is not exactly a problem. The problem occurs that they can't be run without the original game (both Diablo and SiN are sold), and current policy doesn't allow us to upload ISOs/cd images, but only the zipped installed folder. So how will we get out of this situation.
Don't think about the probabilities. The smallest chance can take us a long way forward. It's not like we have anything else to lose.
