Show preview

Pictogram info.png Please make use of the Show preview button. It gives you a preview of the edit you are making, allowing you to perfect your changes before you save the page. You can edit the whole article by clicking the edit button at the top of the page, which is preferable to editing multiple sections consecutively. — Tark lm(pt-br) 13:31, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

About some of your recent edits

Greetings, Jan.

I would like to talk about some of your recent edits regarding Wikipedia links and Workshop names.

There is no practical difference between [[wikipedia:Article and [[w:Article. You don't have to bother yourself with editing an article solely to shorten "Wikipedia" to just "w"; it is hardly noticeable by readers and it is such a small shortening that it barely has any impact on the overall text.

We have actually been removing Workshop names from articles, the reason being that, since trivia regarding the Workshop ("The Workshop description is a reference to X", "This item was contributed as part of the Y set"...) is not considered valid trivia (you can read about it in the Trivia Style guide, right above "What is not trivia?"), it doesn't make much sense to mention Workshop names in the articles (specially since this is something readers can find out themselves by clicking the link to the submission page).

Cheers. - BrazilianNut (talk) 03:43, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

Whenever I was translating something and I was looking onto the original page, I noticed a few of those [wikipedia:Articles], and since the newer iteration of this is just [w:], I fixed it. I knew it didn't really add anything rather than saving space (so practically nothing), but I still felt like doing it, sorry if it caused any troubles, I won't be doing it from now on.
Regarding the Trivia stuff, I really just translate from the original English page. I do not make those up myself. I have read them guidelines prior, but as I stated before, I am a mere translator. (I know this doesn't really excuse me, but just so you know).
I'll be more considerate from now on, Thanks.
