Okay, fine. I'll leave the name alone. As for the motor, I enjoy small technical details. Realistically, what complicated vehicle wouldn't include an operation manual of the specifications and a list of the means to repair it?
It is not a misprint. All of the entries and related items used to say PRAWN then for whatever reason they went through and changed them to Prawn.
And there's nothing stingy about wanting a wiki page to be factual.
If it's not mentioned in the game or anywhere else, it's not false. False information would be putting something in that's misleading or contradictory to actual game content. This is a small, little-known thing called creativity.
You just made it up.
I could write that the Sea Emperor loves to play chess on Tuesdays and by your logic it's perfectly legitimate and just me being creative since it isn't stated anywhere the Sea Emperor does not play chess on Tuesdays.
But this kind of creativity relates to the article subject. Is it really that hard to understand? Is it really such a problem? Does it change anything about the game itself? No, it doesn't. So stop bellyaching, because it really sounds like you don't enjoy others' thoughts.
Creativity and being interested in the subject matter are wonderful things, but this is a wiki, and people come to this wiki for information about the game, not for fans' creative ideas. Wikis are run with strict admins like Bippity and Thunder because if they have any incorrect or misleading information then it can confuse someone looking for information. It's small, but it makes a difference. We want the wiki to be the best source of information about Subnautica, and that means keeping out any information that doesn't appear in the game. You had a cool idea for some fun details about the Seamoth, and that's great, but there's a chance that someone could see it and think "Huh, I've never seen that in game. Maybe I missed something." which would lead to a real world problem. The admins are not cruel, and they are not singling you out for your ideas. Their job is to keep this wiki an esteemed info source, and that means they delete edits and roll back changes all the time. If you have ideas of what kind of content should be in the game, then you should make a blog post, forum thread, or even submit it as feedback in game; but we can't just add whatever we want to factual articles because we think it's interesting.
You don't think that putting in some sort of history, in-game or not, might make the article subject that much more interesting? Or even more immersing? You don't think it would make that particular article subject more relatable?
And the wiki description specifically says "for fans by fans." Don't tell me that doesn't imply fans' input and necessary changes to the pages. Even if it's not mentioned in-game, it can still be relevant.
And back to the disagreement that started this mess, I'm pretty sure that the in-game spelling of the Prawn is a tiny bug in the coding. For actuality, simply retain the proper designation of "PRAWN" for the mech. I know that's not how it is in-game, but that doesn't make it wrong. The name is an abbreviation, after all.
