First, thank you for editing the TWC Wiki.

I've noticed you've created a number of pages comparing different units to each other. To be brutally honest it is better for information of this kind to be put on individual unit pages, in keeping with the attempt at a system we already have. (I say attempt deliberately as no system on the wiki is yet universal.) Therefore, could you please edit individual unit pages rather than making A vs B vs C articles? It would be much appreciated. If an article for a unit doesn't yet exist, as is the case for many FOTS units, then you can of course create it yourself. I didn't delete the comparison and "analysis" articles at once, as I do not believe in deleting anything except spam without warning.

Is that really okay? Because a Comparative Analysis is derived from personal research and opinion. And Official Information and Personal Input should be kept separate.
I used the example provided by this wiki as a basis for my approach.

A list of unit stats isn't really opinion, so certainly goes in individual unit pages. Likewise with directly comparing two/three kinds of marines. Fact is Fact wherever it comes from in this instance, and advice on how units should be used and how they compare with others should also go on unit pages. After all, if you come to the wiki looking for the strengths and weaknesses of a unit, the first thing you would do is search for that unit, and it is far easier for them if all the info is on one page.

Have a look at the ETW unit pages, which have an "overview" and a "details" section (some have tactics as well but those aren't required). The overview is the official in-game description, and the details section is for literally everything else. A page that is titled "analysis..." really should be avoided.

(NB, just because something is the case on one wiki doesn't necessarily mean it is the same for all others ;)) Tango12345 05:21, 19 October 2012 (MDT)

Do you have an account on the TWC forums? If so, what is it? Tango12345 05:13, 9 November 2012 (MST)

Unfortunately, no. --Arima 19:05, 9 November 2012 (MST)

Have you thought of getting one? I was thinking you might make a good member of the wiki team, but for that you need a TWC profile. Tango12345 03:26, 10 November 2012 (MST)

I can't see the point of having one as I'll hardly ever use it. But why not? Registration complete.--Arima 18:28, 10 November 2012 (MST)

Well you would certainly need one if you wanted to be an official member of the TWC Wiki team. Do you want to be part of that or not? If so, I will need to know your TWC profile username.Tango12345 08:12, 11 November 2012 (MST)

It's the same: Arima. [1] --Arima 16:52, 11 November 2012 (MST)


So would you like to be in the Wiki team or not? You've not answered that question specifically so I don't know what you want to do. Tango12345 02:26, 12 November 2012 (MST)

Yes please.--Arima 17:43, 12 November 2012 (MST)

Then you will need to promise to keep an eye on your pms on the main forum. I will contact you there over the next couple of days to sort some things out. Tango12345 00:49, 13 November 2012 (MST)

Okay.--Arima 02:27, 13 November 2012 (MST)
I got the note.--Arima 18:23, 15 November 2012 (MST)

Good, can you please reply to it on the actual forum from now on? This is not a good place for wiki staff conversations as it's public. When you have wiki staff access you should post in the wiki forum instead, or pm me. Tango12345 03:16, 16 November 2012 (MST)

You have TWC mail Tango12345 04:51, 3 December 2012 (MST)



Arima, please see my pm from a while ago. Tango12345 10:53, 16 December 2012 (MST)

Ok, I've replied now. Tango12345 07:29, 19 December 2012 (MST)


There are two important pms waiting in your TWC inbox. Happy New Year btw Tango12345 12:07, 1 January 2013 (MST)


Hiya the info from the FOTS Building category page was transferred to Buildings (TWS2 Fall of the Samurai) by Tango as part of an effort to get text info off of Category pages where it doesn't come up on searches... I've therefore undone your revision to the category page - thought I should explain why here, regards Makanyane 03:43, 6 January 2018 (MST)

Thanks for the spammer alert - unfortunately wasn't online for a bit! Makanyane 00:45, 27 January 2018 (MST)

Hello again, thanks for continuing to work on the wiki! I was going to rep you on the forum but realised you don't really use that account much... Cheers, Makanyane (talk) 10:31, 24 July 2019 (MDT)
