Hi I used this article as a starting point, which has no similar link, can you help me fix both up?
I would like to also add the Chronicle events if this works out

Well, Most "Official" & Finished Way Of Having Event Vehicles List You Will Find On This Page: https://wiki.warthunder.com/User:U44629479, Making New Pages That Aren't On Your Own Userpage Will Have To Go Through Wiki Mod/Admins And Usually Don't Go Approved Unless Actually Fit So. You Might Wanna Start A Talk With The User I Linked, He's Mod & Has Already Done Listing On Event Vehicles, Feel Free To Bug Him About It (talk)

Right, I also found this template after some digging. Should I use those event templates in potential articles on events (and then how?), or are they in themselves supposed to be the way of documenting events? (I ask because they are not easily found on the Wiki, see Category:Events for example.)
I.e. is my submission not acceptable at all as a new page? (PS I haven't used Mediawiki in a while and am brushing up on my skills.)

Category:Navigation_on_events Is Probably The Category You're Looking For, But So Far I Know Admins Haven't Really Verified That Said Pages Can Exist / Be Used, So He's Taking It On Himself To Document It Until He / We Get Approval For It. As For The New Page, It's Probably Better To Not Do Unless You Delibartly Ask & Get Approval From An Admin, Which I Don't Think You'll Get That Easily Even If A Mod Already Tried. Again, Ask Him For More Information If You Have Time. But I Myself Have To Agree It's Kinda Inconsistent As Which Events Get Documented On & Which Ones Not, I'll Forward It To Senior Admin When He Has Time.

Also On Topic Of The Winter Event Template, It's Already Viewable On Said Vehicles, If You Scroll Down All The Way You'll Get The Navtable Of Winter Vehicles. And For More In-depth Detail Of Events / Reward Vehicles, You Can Always Check / Edit On Category:Hidden_vehicles (Gifts).

Just Realized The Link To https://wiki.warthunder.com/Operation_S.U.M.M.E.R. (Operation_S.U.M.M.E.R.) Didn't Properly Create Towards The Correct Page As The Last Dot Gets Considered As Punctuation.

I do not understand the logic here and will probably just spend my time elsewhere. But it looks like the content of the Winter Event Template is approved, but not for the Summer Event Template, can that be true?

Again, Consistency Is Across The Board Sadly And I Don't Really Understand The Logic Either, It's Just What It Is. Current Focus For Wiki Contributors Should Be Completing Vehicle Pages, New Pages And Navigation Is Very Low Priority Now, They Will Probably Be Reconsidered Whenever Most Of The Vehicle Pages Have Been Filled In Enough To Give Context To Players.
