Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

What is the rationale to copy the content of my original page "Dns" to the uppercase variant of "DNS"?

Sorry for leaving my comment unintentionally unsigned. My wiki skills are a little rusted.

Obviously, it was far from unmaintained- in fact, it received more edits than the version you started (and also contained more information). The motivation (as stated in the edit logs) was to fork your article (to prevent edit warring), because we obviously disagreed regarding the contents to be added, i.e. so that we can maintain a copy until your article actually contains a similar degree of information, I've restored the copy elsewhere. Otherwise, there simply is a significant disparity between the degree of information available in the archives and what we make available in the wiki. Actually, it was a rather bold move to simply delete my work and hijack its title without properly discussing this with fellow wiki admins first. If others had done this to articles documenting your work, there would be hardly any useful information left here - as a matter of fact, I don't think the Phi article contains even a single edit made by you, despite containing tons of content you posted via the devel list. Thus, I would politely suggest to tread more carefully here. We don't need to make this a virtual peeing contest. Thank you. --Hooray (talk) 14:04, 17 November 2016 (EST)

The number of edits is not a measure for the quality of content. Against my clearly stated intention on the ML (which should be known by you as you quoted many posts from that thread) you bloated this article with useless quotes, some of them belonging more to multiplayer than to DNS. This leaves the question who was hijacking the article. With all due respect, my I kindly ask to stay out of my way and not touch articles I actively working on? Thank you.
