Hi. Why didn't my revision get accepted?

Hello! Your revision is still pending. We have been back-logged and busy so we have not had a chance to examine every revision as of yet. We will get to your revision on So-Ki as soon as possible. --Inceptor57 (talk) 18:27, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
Theoask79, I was able to work on the So-Ki page and have two items I would like to mention:
  • First, since you tend to use the visual editor, I notice with your edits the paragraph instructions get deleted, which they should not. These serve as reminders especially for future new editors which may make updates, edits or changes and will need those instructions as to what needs to go where (see top section). If information has been added, we don't want the instructions to show, however, we don't want them deleted either. To render the instructions invisible we use the comment brackets <!-- and -->, anything between those will show up on the editing page, but not on the final page, allowing the instructions to remain intact, but not show on the final product. Utilizing the visual editor, what you do is highlight the instruction set, right-click and select "cut". Next, in the toolbar, click on the "Insert" drop-down and select "! Comment". A popup box should show up where you "cut" the instructions from and here go ahead and right-click in the box and select "Paste" which should paste the instructions within the box. Click the "Insert" button and you should now have a new comment with the instructions which will be available for future users, but not show up on the final page.
  • Secondly, in the historical section for the So-Ki you mentioned the Type 98 20 mm cannons and also mentioned the Type 2 20 mm cannons. At this time, War Thunder has the vehicle listed as using the Type 98 cannons and that is what we need to reference in the writing. I looked at the Wikipedia page and several other linked references (including Sensha's page - unfortunately, he did not cite his work to look at further) and the references I looked at all seemed to circle back on themselves with no real credible primary or secondary sources cited. I do not doubt that Type 2 20 mm cannons were the final choice as they were newer (1942 as opposed to the Type 98 - 1938), lighter and had faster muzzle velocity. My recommendation is to try to find at least one primary source (a technical manual, repair manual or other such original documents) or two or more secondary sources such as a book covering the history of Japanese military vehicles or other published book/document which cites sources the information was pulled from. If you can find either the primary or secondary sources which document the So-Ki actually would have gone into production with the Type 2 20 mm cannons, then you can submit a bug report War Thunder Forum (follow the instructions there) and the information may be forwarded to the developers for consideration to change the gun type listed in the game. If you should have any questions, please let me know. - AN_TRN_26 (talk) 00:17, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

So-Ki Update

- Theoask97, go ahead and submit a bug report for the So-Ki (or actually So-Ki II) with the documents and information you have gathered. Remember when posting a bug to the forums, you must read what is required to submit a post and provide all information required or else the submission process is delayed while the forum moderators request any missing documents/files...etc. As Inceptor57 stated, you need to go to here on the forums, follow the directions and submit your bug report. Don't forget to link the forum messages, the document (both the .jpg snippet and the link to the main document provided in the forum). If you run into any challenges, let me know and I will do what I can to help. Good luck with the bug report! AN_TRN_26 (talk) 17:30, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
