Okay what the hell was that supreme ? So you delete countless hours worth of time of many players just because you can ?

This is unacceptable.

Cmon Pizza... The Player Reviews were a way to let people with little cash or flux which weps they should use to make sure they can get the most for their steel. To get rid of that saying "it limits creativity" is silly. Please bring them back...

Can daggerz please revert his edits ? I didn't spend hours of typing and tweaking just for it to get deleted without even my consent, Creativity or not RS's point is still relevant, When i first started those player reviews greatly helped me know what to use and what not to use so why delete it ?

Both me and dag agree that opinions don't belong on these wiki pages, but I'd request pizza to add any useful info or data contained within the player reviews into the main body of the page.

Data recommended, clear and detailed description welcome, opinions and personal thoughts not.
Allowing opinions opens the door to conflicting statements, something definitely shouldn't be there. Undisputed fact shall be the core of the wiki.

I planned on doing this.

I will also start updating the wiki regularly.

It is important to detail how a weapon works and what it does without forcing your own opinion on another. Reading text on a website like the wiki seems quite official. Many would go along with whatever is said. Just because something is said doesn't make it true. I disagree with a lot of what was posted on the wiki. Many of the weapons can be good or bad. Or all can be good. It depends on your setup.

To give people your own opinion makes them less creative. You see all the copying now but that is because you've given them an opinion on all the weapons. They don't find out what they like. The end result is less creativity in setups.

We need to focus more on how a weapon works. Not how good or bad it is.

Put all weapon reviews here:

http://astroflux.org/wiki/index.php?tit ... Weapons%29

Pizza, I didn't ask you to delete all those. That was a bit excessive, should have made a new page and moved them there instead.

Remember guys, the wiki is not for your opinions. It's for accurate and concise information and opinions do not fall under this category.

I can easily go back and collect all the opinions from every weapon and add them onto the page you posted. Will do it later.

Edit: How exactly do I add the opinions to that page?

I always wrote my player reviews to be accurate and describe the weapon in detail, something that isn't done. For example, what if I'm a new player and I think Void Tentacles is like lightning gun and just fires constantly at the enemy? I wouldn't know that it's actually a burst damage. Also, what if I'm using Acid Spores? It seems a bit slow but I can't confirm with anyone, so since nobody else uses it I won't risk the resources.

See what I mean? It limits creativity to have biased reviews, but it also limits creativity to have no reviews.
I highly doubt many people will see the weapon reviews page unless they are directed there.
