Explain Drain

Should we create a page to explain the drain of items like Assembling machines?--Hayertjez (talk) 10:05, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

I was wondering the same, but since it's always shown with watts or kilowatts I think it's self-explanatory. Also, since it's in the infobox right under "Energy consumption" and both values are clearly different, I guess people who actually care about it know what it is. Eventually a short explanation could be added to glossary --Fazzah (talk) 10:19, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
Drain is already explained on electric system, which is the central place for anything about power. -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 10:30, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
Yes that is correct. Although it was not directly clear for me. Is it possible to link directly to the consumption section for example? --Hayertjez (talk) 13:35, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes, that would be possible. I however won't do that for the following reasons: None of the infobox sections links to a page, and as Fazzah already said, the unit of the number already tells you that drain is about electricity. -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 14:13, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
