Vic2HoI4 converter icons

I uploaded them taking them from the converter files. The only one I originally created was the Ancap one. Please, reconsider ~der Hochmeister, alas Flagger 16:13, 17 January 2017 (CET)

The problem is not who uploaded them or from where, the problem is the original owner's permission/copyright. ~ SolSys (talk) 17:57, 17 January 2017 (CET)
That's Idhrendur that should answer. I think they're public domain since the converter is. But if they're not allowed, well, okay. ~der Hochmeister, alas Flagger 16:41, 18 January 2017 (CET)

Versioning

Hey Dauth, not sure if you intended it or not, but the change you made to the Naval Warfare page means it now reads 'current as at versions 1.1' rather than 'current as at version 1.3', which someone had put there at some stage (not me - I haven't gone through and vetted it for 1.3 yet, so could only speak for the bits I've edited - but the reading I've done looked like it was at least pretty close). Didn't understand your comments with the change either. Apologies for noobiness. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 5.94.192.185 (talk) 16:41, 18 January 2017 (CET)

I did. There is a section on the page that is only valid for 1.1 therefore the main version is 1.1. If the remaining outdated sections are up to date then the page should be 1.3. Dauth (talk) 10:26, 19 January 2017 (CET)

On the delete of Greece's guide

Why there's no edit summary? I ask to know why the guide which i spend a week to write, based on all the guidelines set by the moderators, is deleted — Preceding unsigned comment added by TribunusMoreatus (talk) 01:44, 18 August 2017‎

The page needed a rewrite and a long time ago we found that people are more likely to add new content than fix broken old content. If you want to bring the guide up to standard then the list of problems is as follows.
  1. Use of first person: Please change to third person
  2. Use of you/your: Please change to third person
  3. Use of slang/ internet speak: Please correct to full English sentences
  4. Excessive use of bold/capitals: Use italics instead for emphasis, if emphasis is not needed then remove is
  5. Links in section names: Use the {{main}} template instead
  6. Absence of links: Links missing or replaced by bold or italics which do not function
  7. Poor sectioning: Article should be broken up into easy to understand sections
  8. Messages to editors left in page, remove
The template asking for guides does specifically link to the strategy layout and the Style guide. The latter is the reason for the clearing, see Hearts_of_Iron_4_Wiki:Style. If you wish to correct the guide then it is stored here [1] Dauth (talk) 10:21, 18 August 2017 (CEST)
