Welcome to the war Edit
Good to have you aboard at the Call of Duty Wiki, so here's some tips on how you can help:
I hope you enjoy editing on the wiki recruit! I am WHISKEY35, briefing's over - now get back to work.

Unnecessary Deletion, Perhaps? Edit
Hey, I see you removed my trivia thing. I'm not here to whine, but, I see nowhere on this wiki that states that the slide on the PM63 cycles backwards. Now, I do see plenty of obvious things, like: "In Black Ops, an easy way to get hipfire kills is to use shotguns, especially the Stakeout and Spas and fire at short ranges." Now, a four year old could've figured this out, but then again, a four year old could've figured it out. Now, my real question would be: Is this an attempt for a wiki where Captian Obvious is nonexistent, or is this inconsistant editing that I should avoid in the future?

No, I don't think it was an unnecessary deletion. Although it was nice of you to have such a keen, observant eye, I made an edit a long time ago that basically states this fact and more. It's the trivia fact that says "The third person character model, menu image, and HUD image display the PM63 as uncocked. The slide never reciprocates as it does in first person." Sorry if I came off as a General_Ass lol. General_Awesomo 19:26, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

It's not, here at Call of Duty Wiki we only allow the nationality of the gun. On the wiki, due to the sheer amount of inaccuracies with weapons, we take all weapons to be fictional. We don't state inaccuracies because they add way too much trivia to pages and to be honest very few care about this. Hope that helps. Smuff[citation provided] 17:53, March 25, 2011 (UTC)
Here's Call of Duty Wiki's Weapon Policy:
"This is where you put misc facts about the weapon IN-GAME. Do not put trivia that relates to real life, such as how some dude in WWII held off an entire wave of enemies by hip-firing a M1919 machine gun. Do not put facts that relate to the weapon not looking 100% like it does in real life; game developers usually have to skimp on weapon detail for performance reasons. However, you can add things like the Call of Duty guy reloading the gun the wrong way, since that has nothing to do with technical issues."
See? Pay close attention to that last sentence.
And who cares if very few people care about trivia? That's what trivia is! Little bits of information that you didn't know, but when you read them, you go "huh, didn't know that."
sorry, didn't mean to "offend" you in any way. Jeez, next time punch me in the face too for a litle mistake.-21:22, March 26, 2011 (UTC)
