So uh, I figured that we would just be submitting change notes/comments... not have the ability to completely change the wiki.

Surely this can go massively wrong.

Thanks a lot Dave…

I'm sorry for my mistake regarding the Yak-9 template. I'm glad that you could revert.

I was unsure of whether the player level should remain considering new soldiers can't swap careers now. Also, with the cost, should that be removed considering planes are 'free' with the cost of a Fighter Pilot?

The grand prize is mine, don't even think about trying for it!

(Especially you, Dave; you already got some goodies for editing a while ago :P )

Also, CoifStorm, I Have removed the rank at which soldiers would previously unlock a new career path, as well as the price to switch career paths, from all pages and added the player level at which they can be bought, although I may have missed a few pages.

Edit: Am I a bad person for putting off a lot of editing I have planned until September 30th? Probably...

I won't be participating in this competition,

So more prizes for other people ;)

Might come back and help with moderating some of the changes and points system so we don't have a repeat of last competition were quantity>quality.

Well, I don't know if I will be participating in the competition now. Ever since the Garman Update, I can not get the game to run well enough to be enjoyable, and as a result, I have stopped playing and lost a lot of interest in the wiki. Hopefully the game gets optimized soon, but until then, I don't know if I will edit the wiki...
