Recent edits

I appreciate your willingness to contribute to the wiki, but if I'm being honest you're making a real mess of many of the pages and creating a lot of cleanup for other editors. Some tips that might help:

  1. Don't use HTML markup unless absolutely necessary. Please read up on standard wiki markup here before you do any more editing.
  2. Don't add extra spaces between paragraphs or blocks of text. One blank line is all that is required in the vast majority of cases.
  3. Proofread your work carefully before saving the page. If possible, edit your work in an external text editor with a spellchecker and then paste it into the edit box here.

You've added some good info, but in the process you've created a lot of unnecessary work for others. If it doesn't improve, I will simply stop fixing the problems and just revert the pages to their state before you edited them. It's nothing personal in the least; it's just that I have put a LOT of personal time into cleaning things up around here and don't have time to keep cleaning up the same pages over and over. Thanks for your help and cooperation! -- B.Rossow talkcontr 02:57, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

  • Another comment: PLEASE stop adding pages for every little detail of the game. With rare exceptions, if an item only has a line or two of description, it needs to be put on a single page with other similar topics. Specifically I'm talking about all of the individual rank pages you just added. That info needs to be on a single page for easy reference. Readers shouldn't have to click on several different pages just to read a snippet about each rank. Again, I appreciate your willingness to help, but some careful thought needs to be involved before new pages are created. Thanks! -- B.Rossow talkcontr 00:51, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
    • Time for some kudos -- good choices on applying the spoiler template! Thanks! -- B.Rossow talkcontr 03:08, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Spanish pages

Are you using translator software to create/edit the Spanish pages? There is another editor working on this project who is fluent in Spanish and whose spouse is a native Spaniard. If you're just running the pages through a translation program, it's probably best to just leave the work for this other contributor. While he is hesitant to say anything to you for fear of offending, I'm not.  :-) -- B.Rossow talkcontr 19:52, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
