I recently added the rest of the in-game bio for Sledge and Mute into their wikia pages, and i noticed that you had reverted them. Why was this done? Previously, the biography section of their pages followed what was written in the in-game bio, word to word, but did not include the 3 other sections, which are quite relevant in my opinion. I added these three sections, which are the operator's training, relevant experience and notes section. The information in these 3 sections are not listed anywhere else on the page, and they are relevant. If you do not find this information relevant to the page, thats fine, but i, and im sure many others like me, do find this information to be quite relevant. And how are the "Quotes", "Psyhological Profile", and "Trivia" sections relevant, if the information i added, that is directly from the in-game bio, is not relevant?
Your explanation was that the information is already on the page. Where in the page does it say Sledge took part in Operation Telic for example? Nowhere. Now, excuse me if i sound rude, you are moderating this for free, i know that, but to me it seems you just took a quick look, noticed two or three things that are also mentioned in the bio that was already in the page, ignoring all the other relevant information, the fact that that is how its displayed in-game and that not including 2/3 of an operator's degrees in the training section, just because its already mentioned, wouldnt make sense, and would lead to a lot of confusion.
They were primarily reverted because of the interviews. Both pages already have them under device evaluation. As for the training info, it should either go in the bio itself or in trivia rather than its own section.
But why did you revert them, instead of just cutting out the parts you find irrelevant? I also added the rest of the main bio of Sledge to the page, that the one who wrote it in the wikia, seems to have accidentally missed. You reverted that too. Thats just lazy work. And no, i did not notice the device evaluation in the loadout section. I apologize about that. Also, as i said, you cant put the training info into the bio, as the bio is word-to-word from in-game. And if you think the training info is more suited to the trivia, then why didnt you just move it into the trivia section then, instead of just deleting it?
While we used to have the bios verbatim on the wiki, that is no longer the case. The in-game bios leave out a lot of info about the Operators so we no longer do that. Instead their info is spread throughout the article. Info that details their personality or skills goes in the Psychological Profile section, etc. I had planned to go and reimplement the info you added later today after updating the new Operator pages. The revert was only a temporary fix to make the pages conform with the others for the time being. Make no mistake that all of that info is relevant.
Hello! I'm Sannse, from Fandom's Editor Experience team. I'm contacting you as the most recently active admin. Hopefully you can pass this on to others as needed.
One project that we're excited about launching is an initiative to pair newly registered users with experienced advisors (which they can choose from). These advisors would be available for answering basic editing questions and guiding appropriate edits, in the hope that these users will become active in the local community.
Why do this, rather than rely on admins and moderators? We've seen from research and experience (both from Wikipedia) that establishing a human bond with a peer "senpai" or mentor can have a better effect on the comfort of the newcomer, especially where the high volume of edits may cause the quick response of rollbacks rather than taking the time to walk new editors through their early work. While some communities do take that time and care among their leaders, we feel an additional level might put new users at ease and help them be more comfortable with editing. Ultimately, we feel like this project will either free up some time for admins and moderators, or designate them as approachable welcomers to talk to and guide new users. We want to see how effective this is on a relatively small number of communities and see if Fandom's results are consistent with those experienced on Wikipedia. If they are, we may pursue expanding the pilot program and perhaps seeking to build it into a core part of the new platform.
Here's what we would wish for your community to agree to:
At least one volunteer advisor, acting as an advisor and advocate helping newcomers. For the most part, this means responding to questions that newcomers leave the advisor in Discussions. Sometimes this may mean the advisor interacts with admins and moderators to address concerns regarding the newcomer. We have some advisors-at-large (those not tied to the local community, but available as fallbacks) already, but if you have ideas on who you might want to represent you in this role (or if you'd like to do so yourself!), feel free to contact me on my Wall.
Discussions / Feeds. Your community must have this active for the current solution to work. This is the primary method in which advisors have open communication with the users that choose them. We also recommend a Feeds channel of “Help Desk” where the communications can be placed, if you do not have a similar channel.
A change to your Welcome Messages to allow a method where a newcomer can choose an advisor. If you are currently participating in the MyDashboard program, there will be a card there to interact with an advisor.
We are testing this for the next two months, and will see what the future of the program is thereafter. Is this a program you would feel comfortable with placing on your community?
I can distribute this on our Discord which is on all Tom Clancy Wikis. Regarding Rainbow Six Wiki specifically, it doesnt really have any active users that could serve as an advisor. Ill continue to advise users as a part of my WM duties but a full-time advisor would be better for this program.
I noticed in the mission pages of Rainbow Six, there are images of mission success but missing mission failures. I have pretty much all of the copies of the mission failure images if you would like for me to give them to you and you can add them in.
I helped with the article on Alejandro Noronha some years ago. I received an e-mail that some three people changed the article and my photos were removed. I don't really know how to format things, would like those photographs in the article?
