Former ships being included

I've been trying to help and keep the pages of the wiki up to date up to the 4,0 update and see it is well taken care of. However I think its important to keep former ships used during testing that are no longer being used in the game. I noticed that some of the pages have some inconsistencies that need to be corrected. For example, the Cruiser section has different ships that the same section if you were to click a nation and their cruisers. (I,E. Katori is in the Cruiser section under Japan and the Hashidate is in the Japanese Cruiser section.) I don't think either of these ships should be dismissed but both should be included in each section.

Below are some ships no longer available now or later from testing that should still remain in the wiki no mater where you look. These ships also still remain in the Ship class sections as well.

-Katori -Albany -Kitakami

Katori being displayed was due to an outdated page cache, that should be fixed now. As for legacy ships, the WG policy is that as long as the ship isn't available to the general populace, it will remain hidden for the time being. Sometimes there are exceptions, but I'm not the one who make these rules. --Haswell:na (talk) 06:09, 27 June 2015 (UTC)


ok, i didn't know of such rules. I figured if the ship existed in the game at any point in time it could be included. Another ship i was going to ad was the Saipan Carrier. But basically if the ship is 100% unplayable, its not included in the wiki.

Max Dispersion

Any possibility of getting the Maximum Dispersion stat added to the ship page stats? To the primary battery at least. The dispersion of the secondary battery isn't that important. --Trifler:na (talk) 06:44, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Will add that to the template I'm working on, thanks for reminding me. --Haswell:na (talk) 06:58, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Perfect, thanks. --Trifler:na (talk) 01:02, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Premium Ships

Add a link to list Premium Ships, like on the WoT & WoWp page? Jarod997:na (talk) 16:26, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes please!

Thanks. =8o) Jarod997:na (talk) 20:34, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Game mechanics

So there is a bunch of game mechanics information on the Russian forum: https://forum.worldofwarships.ru/index.php?/forum/222-%D0%BC%D0%B5%D1%85%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B8-%D0%B8%D0%B3%D1%80%D1%8B/

Wouldn't it be helpful if somebody translated that stuff? I could, for one. It's tiresome to explain some things over and over on the forums. But I am not sure how to create new pages (e.g. "Dispersion mechanics", "AA mechanics", "Fire mechanics", etc.), or which section they would go to.

I created links to new pages on the main page, but the translation is up to you and others. If you want any other pages with better titles, just let me know. --Haswell:na (talk) 03:59, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
For some reason the Crew link isn't displaying in blue on the main page, even though clicking on it does correctly take you there. I was also thinking that perhaps the page and link should be called "Commander" instead of "Crew" for WoWS. --Trifler:na (talk) 01:21, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Ok I'll take a stab at some stuff in the next few days. - Unknown

Might it be better to move the ammo information out of the Game Mechanics page and onto the Ammo page? --Trifler:na (talk) 01:21, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Might want to discuss this with the other guy working on the mechanics page, I'm not terribly well versed in WoWS stuff. --Haswell:na (talk) 10:17, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

User info for WOWS???

I was looking for some user info about the ships (user comments, experiences...)... but now all the pages have no user info whatsoever? Is this just a plain display error or this removed permanently?!?

Individual pages (articles) have no posting section, nor any place for a user to record editorial comments. This is intentional. The Wiki is meant to present objective information only. The WoWs forum is the closest place to find good player input such as you seek.catsmoke:na (talk) 05:01, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

== Mighty Jingles Videos not approved?

NO

Add category

Please append [[Category:World of Warships| ]] to the page source text. --XXN:na (talk) 09:20, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Adding Traditional Chinese Page

Please kindly add the link of the official traditional Chinese page of World of Warships wiki if possible. I am the editor of the Chinese branch and I appreciate your time to do so. https://wiki.wargaming.net/zh-tw/World_of_Warships Ingramaus:sea (talk) 05:42, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Topics/pages to add

Clans

The only decent section I can find on Clans and how they work is in the 0.6.11 update notes. If you want I can create a page from it.

There is a decent Ship:Clans page. It needs a link on the front page because no one is going to know to search "Ship:Clans" and "Clans" takes them to the WoT page.

Premium Ships

How they work. Earning modifiers. Swapping captains. Etc. Someone who is more familiar with the topic than I would have to do it, but it should be done.

Protected Matchmaking

It is my understanding that new players are protected from highly experienced players (seal clubbers) in matches through a certain level or number of games. It should be mentioned somewhere.

Protected MM added - see Account Level

Incorrect game version shown.

And now it should be updated to 0.7.12.0! Happy Holidays 2018.

Note that the game version displayed on the front page - 0.7.9.1 - is incorrect. It should be 0.7.11 iDuckman:na (talk) 23:27, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Content change request

Please change "Wows_flag_Commonwealth.PNG" to "Wows_flag_Commonwealth.png" so the duplicate file can be removed.<del> Jarod997:na (talk) 20:30, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. Jarod997:na (talk) 15:25, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Game Guide

Newest game guide (but still outdated (from 2017)): https://content-wg.gcdn.co/locdoc/wows/pdf/v_3.0/na/WoWS_Guide_EN_NA_3.0.pdf --Franz_von_Suppe:eu (talk) 16:32, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Screenshots

Just a quick question about the gallery section on ship pages; is it okay for me to continue adding pictures to the gallery, or is bandwidth an issue for the website? ~RegularLogic

Ships_of_Germany not editable

Please make Ship:Ships_of_Germany editable. --Franz_von_Suppe:eu (talk) 15:07, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Main page layout HTML/CSS

Hello all! First, I'd like to thank everyone who maintains and contributes to this resource. I don't know how far editing capabilities go as far as layout and direct design of the pages, but there is a minor issue that I run into, especially on mobile, regarding the main WOWS wiki landing page. The spacing pushes the entire content section over 260px. this is a minor visual... annoyance, however; this does cut off the country selection table. I've done some programming and web design in the past, and was in the process of writing a script to fix it, when I realized the quite simple fix that, if someone can implement, would vastly improve the design and layout of the main WOWS page.

To be simi-technical, the WOWS intro section needs to be split from the detail section after the paragraphs are complete. With the intro, as I'm calling it, split off, the margin for the remaining page content can be adjusted back to a comfortable width.

If that sounded any bit convoluted, there is/are only (depending on how you prefer to write code) 1 or 3 lines of code needed to bring this into fruition.

(had trouble getting the code to show, so no lt/gt symbols)

/div /div div style="margin-left:-220px"

Here are some descriptive images I have uploaded to imgur for further explanation and demonstration: https://imgur.com/a/uD0mT8y
