Call of Duty Wiki


The New Standard for Conducting Arguments

This is a quote I came across on the Throwing Knife talk page:

"I hope that this comment doesn't come off as disrespectful, as I am truly not attempting to be disrepectful to you, but I find that comment remarkably short sighted. I was not aware that this wiki constituted only information designed for and useful to people who actually own the game. Instead, I consider this wiki, as all wikis, to be a source of information for all and any who wish to learn more about whatever topic they choose. To that end, this site should represent the best possible source of information available regarding the Call of Duty franchise - not only for the owners of those titles, but for prospective buyers, or just people that are fans of tactical games in general regardless of intent to purchase. To that end, I would argue against any contributor that makes blanket remarks regarding the usefulness of videos in general. I agree that every weapon probably doesn't need to have a demonstrative video showing what it can do. This is especially true considering that the vast majority of weaponry available in the game works essentially the same way - aim (optional), click, fire round(s). That does not mean that for special weapons that operate either dissimilarly to the other weapons in the game (of which the throwing knife qualifies), or are dissimilar to established FPS norms (again, throwing knife qualifies), a video demonstrating the differences as well as the capabilities of said weapon is appropriate and relevant. Again, I say that with all respect to everyone else's opinion here on the site - if I am wrong in the eyes of you all, then so be it. RealAero 18:24, January 22, 2010 (UTC)."

That is by far the BEST standard of how an argument on this wiki should be handled. Not "I don't like the SPAS-12." Reply: "I bet ur a model 87 whore". I have seen many uneducated arguments, but this one is by far the BEST CONDUCTED, CIVILIZED ARGUMENT (on this wiki) EVER!!! Hats off to you, RealAero, you have no idea what trouble we have been going through due to stupid arguments between senseless users about stupid subjects. -- Veteran Emblem MW2 CoD addict (talk · edits) 00:51, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
