A general reminder
  1. Do not create pages with close to none-existent content ["frameworks"]. They create the impression that a page is a WiP and "will be filled soon enough" deterring users from working on that page.
  2. Do not create pages with speculative or false content in the hopes that some other user might come along and fix it. Data on the wiki pages is mostly extracted from the game files and most users are either unaware of this or don't know their whereabouts.
  3. Having pages with false content is more harmful than having no page at all. Pages such as these create frustration among the userbase and the notion that the wiki is not up to the task.
  4. One can find many pages not adhering to wiki style are allowed as long as they contain information benefiting users.
  5. The wiki team [for the most part] consists of volunteers so no more suggestions such as: get to work, and fix what you've done. You can even do it to your standards this time.

Support Companies In-Depth

I don't understand your comment on the Division page. Are you saying you want me to put it on the Land Units page? It doesn't belong there. The information is for division planning. The Support link on the Land Units page also goes to the In-Depth information I had on there. Also, my information has been there for ages. It's not like I added it recently. --Trifler (talk) 02:47, 19 December 2016 (CET)

There was a duplication of the same content on the Support Battalions technology page [as can be seen by the link of the top of the section]. If need be, duplication of content across pages should be done via transclusion - that way the content can be updated across all pages at once. ~ SolSys (talk) 10:28, 19 December 2016 (CET)
I see. I would like to set up a transclusion then. How do I do that? --Trifler (talk) 06:06, 20 December 2016 (CET)
Done. ~ SolSys (talk) 10:14, 20 December 2016 (CET)
Thank you. --Trifler (talk) 10:20, 20 December 2016 (CET)

Template help

Could you put the category on this template? Template:Pad. For some reason the way I'm doing it messes up how it works. - Gamengervi (talk) @ 20:37, 21 December 2016 (CET)

Done, though I'm not sure it would be would that useful - there are other ways to accomplish it. ~ SolSys (talk) 21:15, 21 December 2016 (CET)
Thanks. It's just quicker for me. I hope that's alright. - Gamengervi (talk) @ 21:17, 21 December 2016 (CET)

Color of option template heading

Like you already seen on my sandbox, the white option text is not readable if the text is wrapped. My preference is to use the color of the frame, or a light gray. I don't want to use more colors. – Lillebror (talk) 18:28, 18 February 2017 (CET)

Agreed. Between the two I prefer light gray since its closer to the current color, but I'll defer to your choice. ~ SolSys (talk) 18:47, 18 February 2017 (CET)

Imgmap co-ordinates plug-in (if any)

Hey there, you hanging on to your own created excel sheet of some kind for calculating the x, y points?
For the time being, I am obtaining the points through paint windows app by hovering over my mouse. Not quite a precise job..
*This extends to the other moderators too, if you can help out* --Heil! (talk) 14:34, 7 May 2017 (CEST)

I haven't worked much with the extension [aside from initial testing]. From what I gathered there are online tools that can generate coordinates to use with it. An excel sheet sounds better for the long run though. ~ SolSys (talk) 17:17, 7 May 2017 (CEST)
The focuses are placed in a grid. But the white space of the screenshots is not always identical. Thus you haven't to determine every coordinate in an image editor. It hasn't to be exact. – Lillebror (talk) 17:48, 7 May 2017 (CEST)

Edits for Focus

You backed out my changes, and did not even bother to contact me on it. Is this supposed to be a Wiki? Does not appear to be so. I have not really been very happy with this, and if you discourage changes like this it will discourage people from adding. I have been real frustrated with the lack of information in this wiki and I thought I would help. I would have expected a lot better material to start with since the company has access to all the information. I was about to add the following since I had to go to a lot of effort to figure it out, but maybe you could do something. You know it takes time to get to the point and then copy everything:

The end of Czechoslovakia is at hand and our forces are marching into Prague at this very moment. With the Surrender of the Czechoslovakian military, we have liberated vast quantities of armaments. Their tanks, in particular, should serve our forces well. Bohman will be annexed into Germany as a protectorate, but what should become of Slovakia? We can set them up as an autonomous state under Jozef Tiso. Set up Slovakia as a puppet state Partition Czechoslovakia with Hungary All of Czechoslovakia belongs to the Reich NOTE: the last one should be selected if want to continue with “Danzig for Slovakia”, otherwise cannot select this option. Czech factories: 7 + 5 + 3 + 3, Slovakian factories: 2 + 1 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qck one (talk) 00:09, 9 June 2017‎ (CEST)

Sorry for not contacting you sooner. For some reason you cannot add a reason when undoing a series of edits. This is indeed a wiki, but editorial decisions are taken from time to time to keep things somewhat in focus. The same was true for your edits; they were either repeating information already present in the preceding columns or simply strategy notes out of their place [strategy section in nation pages]. Edit: Couldn't find the above at first; Event pages are also not the place for these notes. ~ SolSys (talk) 11:17, 9 June 2017 (CEST)

Achivements changes

  1. Why you have changed the order of achievements? I segregated it by difficulty and version, it was easier to read that way.
  2. "Better Than Szent István" requires a DoD DLC as naval commander Miklos Horthy is unlocked by special Hungarian National Focus.
  3. "Miklos Horthy and the Habsburg Prince" requires a DoD DLC - Austria-Hungary TAG is unlocked by special Hungarian National Focus.

Please revert changes to second and third point. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Modes (Talk) 15:23, 25 June 2017‎ (CEST)

The achievements are sorted [by default] by difficulty/ABC across the wikis. It is assumed all users are on the latest version. I'm aware of them being unlocked by an NF, but I'm not aware of it being restricted only to those NF. If it is shown to be case then it can be marked as such. Do remember to sign your comments with ~~~~. ~ SolSys (talk) 16:56, 25 June 2017 (CEST)
Oh, ok. I've checked the files and naval commander named Miklós Horthy and HUN_EMPIRE TAG are only set by Focus. There is no other way. ~ Modes (talk) 18:41, 25 June 2017 (CEST)

Combat tactics - counter tactics

Care to clarify your revert of Combat tactics stating "The table seems pretty clear"? The table does not mention anywhere what kind of bonus chance Recon stat gives, neither is it described anywhere in the game, on the wiki, or on the forums. Offhand (talk) 23:26, 1 August 2017 (CEST)

Your changes were not about recon in particular, but on tactics in general. As such, they were edited [not reverted] to better show that. You are welcome to review your changes to see that it was indeed so. That being said, you're right that the benefit of recon to tactics is strangely not mentioned even though it is listed in the files. I'll add a note on the tactics page to reflect that. ~ SolSys (talk) 09:32, 2 August 2017 (CEST)
Thanks this is better ~ Offhand (talk) 12:17, 2 August 2017 (CEST)

Category names

Since it looks like Gunnar Von Pontius isn't going to fix the category titles any time soon, is there a way to automatically rename the categories on each page or do I have to go in manually and adjust each one? - Gamengervi (talk) @ 12:51, 16 March 2018 (CET)

It should be possible with AWB [AutoWikiBrowser], but I'm not sure if it requires any special permissions. Shouldn't be the case, if memory serves me right. ~ SolSys (talk) 17:43, 16 March 2018 (CET)
Changed the category names via AWB without futher checks. – Lillebror (talk) 09:55, 17 March 2018 (CET)

I saw. I tried using AWB early, but it wouldn't connect me to the wiki. Thanks for doing it instead. - Gamengervi (talk) @ 17:55, 17 March 2018 (CET)
