Certain weapon pages, like the MP 40 and M1903 Springfield , show historical photos of the weapons in action. Others, like the MP 28 and the M1 Garand , show pictures of the weapons themselves. Which should be the standard?
I was working on some banners earlier for exactly this. They comprise of a symbol of the country (Balkenkreuz for Germany, Red Sun for Japan, Red Star for USSR, etc., etc.) and the country's name written in its aesthetic font. For instance, the German title is written in Fraktur, and the American one looks like millitary stencils. This may be the wrong style for the wiki, but, if you want, I'll upload them so you can decide.
I do think we should adress the users using Wikipedia as their only source. Maybe not by editing, as you said, but by messaging them.
Thanks. In the meantime, it's time to fix up all of Jingles' fans' plagerisms and unsourced articles. Who knew a shout-out could be both good and bad?
Because I'm forbidden, can someone please add the following wikitext to the front page? Thanks.
Do your part! Follow the Manual of Style!
Here about us from Jingles? Just get here? No problem! We welcome one and all to World War II wiki!

That sounds dandy. We could always use the ol' [[Text you see|Name of the Page]] thing when linking so it doesn't look messy. Parantheses don't look great in text.
I suppose we could do that. For variants with major differences from the original, like the SdKfz 251/17 or Ju88G, we should probably make completely new pages.
I'm going to have to leave that to you. I have absolutely no knowledge of templates...at all. Looking forward to see how that comes out.
I completely agree. Since this is a World War 2 wiki, we can and should go more in-depth with variants and versions than, let's say, Wikipedia. On the topic of Vehicle Variants, should they be done in a bulleted/list format for ease of access? The current style in the articles with the paragraphs might not cover all the changes between smaller variants, and it would be far easier and better-looking to simply list them.
