Tips[edit]

You should probably use the {{UserInfo}} Template for your userpage. The template you're currently using means your userpage shows up in the countries category and we don't want that to happen. Dauth (talk) 23:06, 12 January 2017 (CET)

Many thanks. Dauth (talk) 16:06, 14 January 2017 (CET)

[Unindented] Please refrain from deleting {{Version}} and {{SVersion}} tags when updating an article. Simply change the tag to the appropriate version number and leave a summary note instead [major versions are suffice - 1.x is fine, no need for 1.x.y]. Thanks. ~ SolSys (talk) 11:15, 17 January 2017 (CET)

China page[edit]

I understand the User talk page is where people engage in forum-like discourse about wiki matters, so I am posting here. China is a country with more convoluted politics than most. You deleted the China page politics section rather than revising or replacing it with something you find more pertinent and informative, unless there is a more detailed explanation somewhere. Just purging something that does some good is a dramatic step when it might be rehabilitated. I believe you can place a comment which should be discoverable by viewing the page or page history.

What was there is interesting to readers if correct, particularly those without historical background on China. So it is net useful. Obviously you are using "fluff" as a pejorative and not technical term, for all historical info in a game manual can be regarded as fluff. If you know enough to identify inaccuracies, you know enough to change them.

There is a great gap between being "edited mercilessly" to improve the wiki content and it being eliminated, so in the interest of the readers who are the beneficiaries of this wiki it ought not to be done in a cavalier manner but instead with due deliberation. Since I don't really know why you did this I'm not sure what else to say, but would like to understand - especially if I am lacking in understanding the purpose of the wiki and the editing processes. This particular bit of text may be full of errors, but the process is important, so explaining your thinking on this would be helpful. I apologize if I misunderstand the situation.Sir Garnet (talk) 22:25, 16 January 2017 (CET)

It's because the politics section is for a most part about the in-game relations between different nations rather than a giant paragraph of fluff that isn't helpful to the game. Most of the content if it were stay it would be modified and put into Historical Information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TehHank (talk) 23:11, 16 January 2017‎ (CET)
Great points brought to light. Had a feeling to contest the deletion meself. Didn't follow through. It was an interesting read. Hyped me to played China after the read. --Heil! (talk) 07:53, 17 January 2017 (CET)
