Hello my friend! I have used your wikia and i find it very interesting. I am currently connected to the discord server connected to the wikia. Now i want to provide you with a Swedish and Norwegian website which acts as a digital archive for any and all items in goverment run museums in said countries. https://digitaltmuseum.se. This website have alot of pictures of military items.
i've created a Discord server as a additional means of communication between users and this wiki. Everyone can join, the current state the server needed some work. I hope this will be helpful improving this wiki.
i think you have to click both the links of the terms for it to work as to "read" the terms. Did you did that? If you did than i'm afraid you have to contact them for help. If you didn't try my solution.
No problem dude, I was also too aggressive I just wanted to clear the thing out. I throw some stuff around hastily like the magazine thing with the intention to further reword the thing but you directly revert it and if I am to simply reverd back it would become an edit war so I just wanted to make it clear. Don't take it personally.
Thinking forwards, I think that the current format of documenting an equipment's media appearances isn't very good for the long run. Old Soviet equipment appeared in hundreds of Soviet/Post-Soviet films, and trying to list them all would be a nightmare of dedication (just look at all the Russian movies that don't stop coming on IMFDB) and be way too big to fit in the small sections we have right now.
So I'm wondering, if it would be possible to found a internet movie equipment database in the same vein as IMFDB. On there, we would talk about what kinds of uniforms, helmets, boots, radio, etc., are found in a piece of media work. For gun attachments, I think those are better off as a subsection of IMFDB.
In any case, I personally value good knowledge over the trivia of which movies an item appeared in, and I personally believe that we ought to eliminate these media trivia from the pages since they distract from the otherwise informative tone of the wiki.
Hi there Nanomat. I wonder if it would be possible to convert Custom_Infobox into a legit infobox template, with all the "first", "second" and "tenth" parameters renamed to more appropriate parameters. Do you think such an act is logistically feasible?
Yeah, sure I think it can be done. Back then when I started the wiki I didn't know exactly what I was doing so I just came up with this temporary infobox patched out of some copy/pasting of some template tutorials. I was learning the basics of wikia with this infobox but after some time just forgot to make a proper one, to be honest I still don't even know what would be the benefits of having a proper infobox.
What do you suggest?
A proper infobox would make it significantly easier for an editor to use. Right now, the parameters in the source editor are generic numbers like "First", "Second" and "Third", which correspond to "Type", "Designation", and "Place of Origin" in the article. This means that an editor has to constantly reference what each parameter means instead of just having a logically named parameter that is obvious as to what it means.
IMHO I just kinda think that having a proper infobox would make the wiki look better.
Okay, now I found out why I didn't touch the infobox through all these years. When I change the "First", "Second" etc sections to something else all the descriptive stuff in those fields resets to unknown, even of already existing articles. Example, when changing "first" to "type" this results in the actual article changing from "Type: Infantry helmet" to "Type: Unknown. There is also the fact that this is older infobox type and wikia now has newer stuff, maybe the solution would be to have completely new infobox template but I'm not sure how this would affect all the articles, it would be too much to rewrite new infoboxes for over 300 articles. I'll try to come up with something, maybe find a way to modify the current one.
Well, the wiki was created with the intention to document equipment in the form of uniforms, helmets, backpacks and generally items that are not weapons. The only exception is for cold weapons like knifes, bayonets or axes as they are not firearms and can be considered to be tools. If you are interested in firearms you can check the Gun Wiki, they specialize in firearms.
Greatings Nanomat, i am a huge Modern warfare fan and a COD nerd, altough i play other games such as Halo and Medal of Honor Airborne.
But the storyline is a bit confusing and a mess.
Second russian civil war 2011-2016 (i think it ended in 2013, because of Operation: Kingfish and explains Captain Price capture, wich is a live action movie)
But on Codwiki it says it ended in august 10th 2016.
This bother me most.
Zakhaev airport massacre, Makarov inner circle commits mass murder in the airport one of them is an undercover CIA agent and he gets killed and USA is blamed for using american weapons, but there is one problem.
Makarov and his team did not wear masks, and were easily seen on the screen making the war pointless.
Russians use NATO weapons ( i know they got them from arms dealers around the world such as Alejandro Rojas, and were reissued, but Vectors and AA12 are american weapons. But does they use the right ammunition for the weapons?
Russo-American war happens next day august 13, just two days after a long five year civil war, Russia must be tired after fighting itself. Are Russia communist again? or imperial.
And how did the russian forces get trough Europe and the navy got pass the GIUK gap?
Hello again. I need some help on an interesting thing I noticed recently. In CSGO, both the AUG and the SG 553 have ACOGs on them (the one on SG 553 might not be an actual ACOG however, but it looks close to one). However, they seems to be of different models. Do you have any idea what specific models they are? Thanks.
