Official Warning for your recent actions
I'm Gangsir, head admin of the official factorio Wiki. I, along with Bilka, form the administration team of this Wiki. I'm messaging you now to give you an official warning, as you have violated the following rules:
- Language pages when translated should use the English name with the language code appended to the end of the name. For example, "Transport belt" when translated to German should be named "Transport belt/de"
- Do not edit-war. If a user overwrites your change and you disagree, do not edit the page back and forth, discuss it on the talk page of the page in question. In instances of edit warring, the oldest version is preferred until a decision is reached.
I've also noticed that within some pages, you provided links to English pages. We generally avoid this, as it is not useful to speakers of another language who do not speak English. It also makes work for us in the future to correct these links once the pages are translated.
This is your official warning. Accept the correction by Bilka, and cease edit warring. Failure to do so will result in a temporary ban. If you have any questions, please ask me. Thanks, --Gangsir (talk) - Admin 13:58, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
im sorry about that and have now understand the system and how to use it. I will fix my issues as good as i can.
Your translations and another warning
I'm Bilka, the other admin Gangsir mentioned. I want to remind you of the following rule:
- Please use the "Show preview" button to view your changes before saving them, to allow yourself to catch incorrect links and typos, and improper formatting. While creating multiple edits to the same page is allowed, it creates clutter on the recent changes screen. Note: Since multiple edits in one day may still happen to pages, they can be grouped on the recent changes page by enabling "Group changes by page in recent changes and watchlist" in the recent changes tab in the user preferences.
- Please only translate if you speak the language very fluently or natively. Do note that stuff like infoboxes and navboxed automatically translate. If they automatically translate incorrectly, Edit the translation template for the language. (eg Template:Translation/de for German)
Additionally, please translate in-game items or objects according to the official translation of the game. One example would be the "modular armor" which is called "modulare Rüstung" in the German version of the game, not "modulare Panzerung".
