  • You don't need to add "the" before the name of a weapon in a page. You also don't have to add "weapon" after the slot type in a weapon page, it already knows which slot the weapon is in just by typing "Primary" or "Special".

    • Actually, I looked at the infobox/weapon code. it doesn't even use the slot variable anymore. Techn0c1de modified it recently so that the slot shown is based on the type variable.

    • Most articles should start with the word "the" unless it is a person. In regards to the slot type, if would have bothered to compare the Exotic Auto Rifle articles before and after my edits, Overlord Nazo, you would have realized there was problem.

    • I didn't mean it rudely, I was just saying that it was miniscule. I didn't want to see you wasting your time editing every weapon page to make minor changes, such as that.

    • In terms of article names, the question is addressed in the Manual of Style. Titles should not begin with "the" or contain any other article or coordinating conjunction unless -- and ONLY unless -- the title contains the word "The," such as The Last Word. This is not a matter of personal preference, but rather an already-addressed issue in the MoS.

      In terms of the first sentence of an article, I think that is far more an issue of personal preference. Proper grammar does not necessarily require the use of the word "the" when referring to the proper name given to a weapon. You wouldn't refer to "the Excalibur sword" -- it's just "Excalibur." At the same time, some of these weapons are more along the lines of model names, like a car, and there, use of the word "the" is appropriate. I don't think there's one rule here -- use common sense. "Gjallarhorn" probably doesn't need a "the," but "the Suros Regime" certainly could.

  • Is there a reason you changed a lot of the BigQuote templates to Quote? Was it so that quote attribution shows up?

    • If we're keeping the "Quote" templates for those pages, should we change all the ones with "BigQuote" to "Quote"?

    • That's exactly why I changed them, but others seem to think differently.

    • I was using BigQuote in anticipation of the quote attribution being added to the template. That way, if we decide we want to use it later on, we don't have to do mass edits.

      If you think it's a better idea to use Quote for now, let me know and I can help make those changes as we go. I just want to make sure we maintain consistency.

    • Whatever works, I just think its silly not to have the quote attributions.

  • Currently, a weapon's damage type is displayed as 75 Void damage icon.

    Do you think we should change it to Void damage icon 75, since that is how it appears in-game?

    • That's fine by me, its not like I can easily determine how it is in-game, since I don't have the game.

      I also think templates for rarity and perhaps slot should be in order.
