P-51 (Family)

I noticed that you made an edit to P-51 (Family) that added hidden sections for future documentation of the Mustang's history. I would not add these to the family article, I would create a history article for this purpose (which, coincidentally, I have already started working on here).

Also, your hidden comment "Please do not change this page in anyway" is discouraged on most wikis as it constitutes "ownership of articles", which goes against the spirit of collaboration. I see that there is no article on this wiki that covers this problem, but there is such a page on Wikipedia that I believe applies to all organized collaborative wikis. thunderdog1138 (talk) 22:36, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

  • @thunderdog1138, while it may appear as if patrioticalien is staking a claim to the P-51, I don’t think that is the case. Due to time zones, work, school, life, it may take a day or two for someone to get an idea out on a page and in the meantime don’t want anyone to add/edit/delete until they are finished. We do authorize notice banners to be used on a page if someone is actively editing a page, but those are usually only good for a day or two and then the page is released for anyone to edit after that. It just happens that both of you are working on similar things at the same time; let's give him an opportunity to finish working on this. I do appreciate the work you are doing with your history section of the P-51 family. I am very interested to see how yours fleshes out, however, it may get to a size where it would not be feasible to put it on the P-51 pages or the family page, instead, we may look at giving it its own page much like US Bombs General Information or Japan Bombs General Information and from there we can create links on the appropriate pages with the main template ({{main|P-51 History}} or something like that). You are correct that this is a collaborative effort and there are lots of good ideas going around to make the War Thunder Wiki a very interesting and informative wiki for everyone to use and contribute to. I think it is interesting when doing a Google search, how close to the top of the results often times the WT Wiki pages come up. Keep up the good work, if you should have any questions as you go, please don't hesitate to ask. --AN_TRN_26 (talk) 23:19, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

Hello :*@thunderdog1138, hope your having a fantastic day! These Family pages are very new, they are in very late alpha test right now. A few family pages have been selected, to further this development, into the next phase of development (The P-51 Mustang Family page is one of these that, has been selected). These pages - right now should not be edited, at this time, in-order not to disappoint anyone who may wish to edit them. We have some upcoming plans for them, which we need to test & develop, to get the best possible experience for everyone! These are going to happen soon and possible some radical changes & further ideas for all family pages in general.

Please do keep up your great work! Kindest Regards --patrioticalien (talk) 13:28, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
