    Man, this is bogus! If it's supposed to be open forum for fans of the game to made edits as they see necessary, then the admins aren't following their own protocol. Hypocrites!

    • Bippity and I have both explained to you that the name we're using is Prawn, not PRAWN. While your designation is more or less correct, we have to go on what the game uses, which is Prawn.

    • I am an admin. Since you're so hung up on correct names, what's with "Alterra Banderos Aquaflurry Mk VII electrical motor"

        Loading editor
    • 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?

    • Do you not see an inconsistency with your insistence on having the correct name for the Prawn Suit, then adding a completely fabricated name to the Seamoth page?

    • Look, can a fan of the game have a little fun with the wiki? Why can't we be friends?

        Loading editor
    • You have blogs and Discussions and article comments for all your fan fun.

        Loading editor
    • Okay, fine. Be stingy about your pages. Sheesh.

      And I'm pretty sure that the in-game Prawn is a misprint.

    • 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.

      You're adding false information, which is a no go.

    • 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.

        Loading editor
    • That's not being creative, that's called putting something you made up on a wiki page made for facts about the game.

    • 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.

    • No it doesn't, it doesn't relate to it at all.

        Loading editor
    • We don't not "enjoy others' thoughts", you're simply throwing a hissy fit because you can't have your own way.

    • Just shut up, Fireblade. Stop acting like a dang 4 year old and start listening to what these nice guys are telling you. They know what they are doing.

    • A wiki article is for factual information taken from the game. Something you just made up is not factual.

        Loading editor
    • Like saying that the Sea Dragon Leviathan lives in the Save Shallows. Its (like Bippity said) not factual.

        Loading editor
    • You don't agree that inventing a history for something makes it just that much more interesting?

        Loading editor
    • The articles are not for inventing, they are for facts. We have article comments, blogs, and Discussions (linked at #7) for inventing.

    • 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.

    • That is one HECCIN' explanation!

    • 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.

    • No matter whether or not it does, it doesn't belong there.

    • 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.

    • Okay, fine. Be bullheaded sticklers for adherence to exact game content. I can tell you that I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    • That's nice.
