WindBOT problem

I received your message, thanks.

However, the WindBOT keeps editing the "This user has deleted their Steam account." part on the "Koala Compact/zh-hans" page. Though I used the {{botignore}} template to avoid it editing this part, it still undoes my translation for this part.--ApertureLab (talk) 12:13, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

Yep, I noticed that on the English page too. No real way to avoid it I suppose.

About the CritHitChance.png

I thought maybe someone could edit Critical hits and add some information on the crits chance changes, and add that old image which is about the difference of new and old crits chance mechanism, that could be useful.

By the way, since you already overwrite the old image, it's SVG source code could be deleted as well. I made the new image in a spreadsheet software. There's no source code to upload.

I think it may be better to keep this in case a new use is found for the old image (It's still saved in case it gets reverted). I'm not entirely sure what changes should be mentioned, update history is there to display the changes made and there is no need to mention how it used to work. If players want to find that out, there is a blog post in the references sectino that explains it.

Translated Videos

Hey! Why was that change necessary in the Polish versions of Meet the Team videos articles? The official ones don't have interlanguage subtitles. MatikTheSeventh (talk) 13:34, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

I've changed every single non-official video on every meet the team pages. The issue with non-official translations is that we have no way of knowing if any personal beliefs were put into the video (E.g. Meet the Pyro having every pronoun changed to "she" because the video uploader believes Pyro is a woman). There is also the issue of them being able to be taken down at any moment (For example, zh-hant Meet the Spy was non-existent, an English video is better than nothing). I'll see if anything can be arranged for subtitles on a wiki channel re-upload, but having videos from personal YT accounts is not good.
