  • Hey, just a quick comment, I am fairly new to Wiki, and want to make sure I cam doing things correctly. So, perhaps you can give me some insight on why you keep deleting my edits - which I perceive to include valuable, objective information.

    • We don’t do a ‘Performance’ section on this Wiki. The closest thing we have to that is the ‘Overview’ section, which is generalised information. If you wish to add a section, please ask and consult with an admin first before you do anything else. Though, for me myself, please ask other admins like Medlone, I just try to keep things in order whenever I’m around.

      And don’t undo an admin or a content moderator’s rollback without discussion first. That’s not what you do.

  • There are no set standards, there are even no guidelines or MoS (Manual of Style), so we either get one or we hold a discussion about every change. I propose Gameplay Description to have "Synergies" and "Counters" to better show other operators' respective skills in relation to page one. "As an ally", "as an enemy" just sounds too obvious and it would better using actual terminology (or part of it) used even by developers.

    I'm up for any discussion on Discord.

    • Hmm... for now I've editted my version of the descriptions for the latest ops, hidden behind the <!--X-->.

      The thought came that a server for the R6S wikia may be nice, but otherwise, my user is greenmoriyama#9315 for discord.

    • Now that's just really unnecessary (to comment or using big texts and not using them on live pages), not trying to incorporate your edits into proposed system or using blog post. It reaches the point of using voting to determine next step, but I will try to forward my point while acknowledging yours.

      It's WIKI in the first place, it's NOT GUIDE or TUTORIAL, it's WIKI. "Wiki is not obligated to offer such information", that's right. Community already does great job at making their own texts or videos about "How to play", tutorials and wiki sometimes include those in the gallery section or incorporate into article itself with proper citing of the source. "Counter" is common word and it's better term to use for Wiki and search engines. I already said how word "Counter" don't guarantee anything - it's reader's own problem of thinking like that in the FPS game (we can also include a note about it not being one way advantageous or include soft/hard counters), most of the game is still about aim and headshots.

      I'm failing to see how using word "counter" is an issue even with all your points provided - "Being a common word does not mean that it's a good term to use" but it's easier to just change one word, than to re-study whole world just because it's not good term - it's already a word used in MOBA-esque games and Siege is part of that by some extent. Maybe that's why it's all subjective, I even stated how even developers themselves use this word. There's too much information in how player/opponent/teammate can play (with/against) certain Operator with "As X" structure type and there is idea to use "Operator/Tutorial" or "Operator/Tips" for that matter, but like other wikis do it's better to generalize and use as short as possible but informative points with "Counter" still being the better word player looking for. Even the game itself provides short, but on-point information and wiki just expands on them with providing relations to other Operators.

      Just like Aljohn - I go with the general flow of how other wikis do, FPS ones and most visited like CS or OW. It still fits better the wiki structure and don't overlap with the "Guide" or "Tutorial" structures. Wiki provides information about the subject, wiki doesn't teach (if article's pagename doesn't include "tutorial" in it), but it can provide small "tips and tricks" or general "gameplay description" with counter and synergies. Because that's what people are looking for in the wiki about R6 series.

      There is still small community for this wiki, but here's link to Discord server, it's poorly set up, but should be okay for live rants, debates and discussion.


      Thanks to Aljohn Salced for reply to the initial messages and thanks to Awyman13 for setting up the MoS page (I think we can build on it or change it later) and I'm closing this thread since Aljohn replied to the initial though of the original message. Thanks to GreenMoriyama for reply too, but this discussion should now be initiated at my message wall or Discord server, the fact of closing the thread is not to be taken as "MUH POINT IMA RIGHT", but it evolved and Aljohn expressed his opinion about it.

  • Hello admin. A few months ago, before Operation Velvet Shell, I saved the full-body no-background operators images from the operators page on the official Ubisoft site. However, after Velvet Shell, I can no longer save the images from the site. If I try to do so, I will download a useless file that shows nothing. Right now I am wondering if I am allowed to upload them to this wiki, because I suspect that the reason for why I can't save these images anymore is that Ubisoft might not allow others to use these images. Do you have any ideas?

  • Hey, is the T-5 SMG from R6: Siege Blood Orchid DLC a returning weapon from Vegas 2 or a seperate gun? Because the name T-5 is Type 05.

  • Hey, Tachanka gallery is locked from editing, I can only "view source". And can you add links to SDU and GROM in "Rainbow Six Siege > DLC Operators > ? ".

  • Hi Aljohn Salceda,

    I'm contacting you as you are the most recently active admin.

    I just posted a blog post about Volunteer Curators here on Rainbow Six Wiki and I'm wondering if it'd be ok with you and the rest of the admin team if I posted a community message about it (like a site-wide message, but just for this wiki). We're hoping to attract PC gaming news fanatics to help round out our PC gaming coverage on Fandom.com .

    Thanks!

  • That navigation bar is not properly working for weapons with fewer game appearances, so you might take a pause there. I'll take a look at it later how to make it work, but generally I wanted to make a tab system without js or css tinkering (and it looks like it won't work... probably). But you got the idea.

    Also, thanks for help and testing that idea. Editing a wiki for a series of games... yeah, now I know it's an experience.
