Hi all, I was wanting to fill in some missing information in a couple of Wiki entries, as it is very unlikely someone else is going to do it after all this time. But it says I need at least 100 battles in the Wargaming.net universe before I can add anything to an article? I've got well over 1000 battles now.

 

EDIT: This is the Global wiki just in case it isn't obvious. :)

Double check you're logged in on the Wiki.

I'm logged in at the top right corner on the black border. If the Wiki requires a separate login, where is it? There is no EDIT tab, only TANK and DISCUSSION tabs, both with padlocks next to them.

Someone must have had unsanctioned editing access to the TVP VTU page because I don't see any more mention of it being on par with the Defender?

That's only because by now it has far surpassed the Defender. Expect a premium version of the TVP VTU to be be released to the masses at any time now.

Not guilty, I don't even know those tanks :teethhappy:

 

I'm trying to edit the Valentine AT. Still can't find any kind of option to let me do it. Is being a member of this forum and the EU server somehow not enough - do I need to create some other login?

I could edit it just fine after logging in to the Wiki. Honestly didn't even know that anyone could do that - despite the "definition" of a Wiki. Maybe it is a browser issue? Chrome seems to be working fine, though. Might try with an alt account later.

 

Edit: Well, my alt at 50 battles isn't able to edit. Doubt it's much more comples than an X battle requirement. Seeing as 250 is the limit to post utter bullcrap in this very forum, maybe it's 2500 on something that's meant to show some quality advice? :D

I've been trying it in Firefox. Will try again in Edge. If that doesn't work, bugger it. Not bothered about having to use multiple browsers just to add a couple of lines to one tank entry.

If you want to tell me what you want to change, I'll go in and make the edit for you.

Below the Tank and Discussion tabs should be 3 links : View, Edit and History.  If they are not there, try looking at "Preferences" at the top right hand side.

 

The first (home) page is protected so the edit link is replaced with "source".

It's on the way. Will have a top speed of 150 km/h, 250 mm armour all round without weakspots, and a 155 mm howitzer with a 10 shot autoloader. It hasn't been released yet, because WG thinks it needs a buff.
