World War II Online

Clearly, you've put effort in putting up this page, but please follow the proper formatting for making a video game page on this site. As is said in the discussion section, the page should exist to identify the weapons used in the game and not as a game FAQ. Please refer to a page such as Call of Duty: Black Ops to see how a proper videogame page is formatted. Since you are the creator of this page, you are given a chance to correct this or else the page, no matter how much effort was put in, can be subject to deletion by the moderators. --Ben41 04:48, 30 April 2011 (CDT)

OK I am working on it :( give me a few days...

OK done - hchris

I've corrected some of the entries to see how it should be done, but it is hoped that you will go ahead and finish it up. --Ben41 18:28, 2 May 2011 (CDT)

When you are creating an enrty for specifications, it is easy to use templates {{convert|kg|XXX}} and {{convert|mm|XXX}}. They show the data in lbs/ks and inch/mm. Greg-Z (talk) 13:18, 29 September 2013 (EDT)

Thank you for the info! - hchris


You know, you don't have to change all the entries for flakvierling 38s to "2cm" because while there was another FlaK 38, there wasn't another flakvierling 38. It's kind of awkward on the actual gun page now because it's subsection 2, so you end up with it looking like it says "cm flakvierling 38" in the table of contents.

Also, if you're trying to put a page on top of an old redirect, please ask an admin to delete the redirect, don't do it manually. That loses us the edit history for the page. Evil Tim (talk) 14:17, 9 February 2015 (EST)
I can't currently get on the forums because I've lost my password and the reset form doesn't send out emails, but it seems everyone is agreeing with standardising capital Ks at the end of the German semi-acronyms, and I think calibres are only needed if there are two guns with the same designation to differentiate them, not in all cases (standardising nomenclature does not require we write everything in the longest way possible, and you're being misleading when you say you've taken things into account when you've actually ignored everyone and restated your original idea). M51 should not be a page at all since it's just a mounting for a bunch of M2s (much like there isn't a page for CROWS or other RWS mountings). Evil Tim (talk) 20:37, 15 February 2015 (EST)

Remove screenshots.

Before you remove the screen from the page. Edit it and enter the code in it {{Nuke}}. When you add a screen to a page, edit it and enter the code.{{ss}} --Emto_PL (talk) 16:09, 11 April 2017 (EDT)

PV-1 machine gun in Heroes & Generals

Hello! I would like to pay attention to the name of PV-1 machine gun in Heroes & Generals. You entitled the entry as Pulemet Vozdushny PV-1 where Pulemet Vozdushny is the transcript of the abbreviation PV. The typical title for the Russian guns include the name of the designer, like Tokarev TT-33 or Degtyaryov DP-27. For PV-1 similar title would be Nadashkevich PV-1 or maybe Maxim-Nadashkevich PV-1, or simply PV-1 (without the transcript of the abbreviation). If you don't mind, I'll create an entry on Maxim page for this machine gun. With best wishes, Greg-Z (talk) 07:09, 14 August 2017 (EDT)

Sure please go ahead and create an entry on the Maxim page. I will update the Heroes & Generals page according to the name you choose on the Maxim page :-) --Hchris (talk) 15:27, 17 August 2017 (EDT)
Complete. PV-1 entry on Maxim page created, links added. Greg-Z (talk) 03:03, 18 August 2017 (EDT)
Thank you very much, good work!! --Hchris (talk) 08:56, 19 August 2017 (EDT)
