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. - Ashe (talk) 14:08, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Heyo. In regards to this, please keep in mind that all edits are shown under the Recent changes and posted in our IRC channel in real time. As of right now, you've been cluttering both the Recent changes and IRC with unnecessary edits, which make monitoring difficult for us and leaves out focus on more important edits. By using the Show preview feature, you'll be able to check your edits prior to saving them and should be used as often as possible to minimize redundant edits. If you need help on wiki formatting, then please check out our Help section. Thanks! User Wookipan Golden Strawberry.png Wookipan (talk | contribs) 18:03, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Concerning your map strategy page edits

Hello! I've noticed that recently, you've added a lot of information to the "General Strategy" sections of the Community Badwater Basin strategy, Community Gold Rush strategy, and Community Mercenary Park strategy articles. Those sections have been empty, or almost empty, for a long time, so the effort is appreciated, especially with the level of detail you've been going to for each individual section of the maps.

However, instead of ordering each of the points individually, with subsections for the attacking and defending teams, it would be preferable if you could instead list the offense and defense teams as their own sections, with subsections for each point. I've already re-ordered the articles linked above myself, so you don't need to worry about going back to them to change the order, but keep it in mind if you take it upon yourself to write another page for another map.

In addition, and I'm not trying to be mean by saying this, the grammar could use a little bit of improvement. You seem to be using "they're" instead of "their" a lot (e.g, "the Blu team should be pushing out of they're spawn" instead of "the BLU team should be pushing out of their spawn"). Also, keep in mind that the RED and BLU team names are always fully capitalized, instead of just the first letter. Once you are done editing, you should re-read what you've written and correct any errors you've found before you finalize the edit. The "Preview Changes" button can help with this.

Other than those two things, keep up the good work! Editing articles in huge chunks like that can be difficult and time-consuming, so I'm glad to see you're taking the initiative to do it yourself. It's greatly appreciated. HitlineMiamo (talk) 04:04, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Helpful overviews

Hi there,

Please don't upload files with the "2" next to it, but rather just call it "[Map] overview with lines" (Unless you need 2 different images). Please also go see this and this edit, these things should be changed on every map page so far and in the future. Mainly being removing the large amount of whitespace and replacing it with {{clr}}, using the correct forms of you're/your and their/they're/there, as well as replacing the "Helpful overview" with "[[#Helpful overview|Helpful overview]]" to create a link that leads to the section.

Okay, thanks for notifying me, I didn't know about the {{clr}} option so I just spammed the enter botton until the strategy section got moved far enough below the image, but thanks for the advice :D Lolimsogreat21 (talk) 18:47, 11 April 2021 (UTC)Lolimsogreat21
'tis all good, that's why I contacted you :) I think the overview section can be turned into a template as well, but I'll have to see about that.

Uh...I've been wondering about this but whats a template? I didn't get the chance to ask this anyone so mind if i ask you.The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lolimsogreat21 (talk) • (contribs) 21:10 CEST 11 April 2021
It's basically a page that contains stuff that's often repeated on pages. The infobox you see on something like Scattergun is a template, for example.
Also I've noticed that you still make the same mistake of using "your" instead of "you're" and not linking the "Helpful overview" bit, please start doing this as the first is basic grammar that's not really excusable to get wrong and the second is just a helpful link. Also don't forget to sign your comments using ~~~~.
