    New skin - PCGamingWiki: Overclocked

    The tooltip for the "DRM-free" icon now says "Digital Rights Management (DRM)" which will be confusing for those not familiar with wiki's icons.

    PC Report: Fallout 4

    The botched final sentence is used again. You guys really should correct the template.

    There also doesn't seem to be a guideline for highlighting the ports based on wrappers like Wine or DOSBox. Several different approaches are in use now.

    Damn it, I intended to link this.

    Considering how many Linux ports are getting announced lately, I think the infobox section should contain a tip on making citations for release dates. A little OT: is there not a button to create a hyperlink in the forum posting form?

    Somebody should fix the last sentence here according to this complaint of mine. Thanks in advance. http://community.pcgamingwiki.com/page/blog/_/features/port-reports/pc-report-the-witcher-3-wild-hunt-r183?st=0#comment_5844

    PC Report: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    I've just noticed that there's a superfluous "The" before "Wild Hunt" in the title.

    I'm not a native English speaker, but shouldn't the bit in the last sentence be "want us to create"? "more articles, more often" isn't elegant too IMHO. As for the main topic, I personally don't think the game really needed to be a new benchmark standard, but it's still a shame it's not very well optimized yet.

    Yeah, this is a pretty deceitful recent trend in Russian law, but I don't think it will affect video games very soon. Also as shameless and suspicious the data storage law is, it might create some sort of effective opposition to NSA in the IT sphere, which is a good thing considering how dominant it is now.

    Umm, is this a joke? Russia isn't the most free country in the world regarding video game censorship, but it's definitely far from the top of the least free ones right now. As far as I know only Modern Warfare 2 has been censored and only Manhunt has been banned here in 2012 after an incident of mass murder. Meanwhile Germany censors all games that have serious gore or Nazi references and Australian gamers have it even worse. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Russia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Germany I doubt the situation won't change for worse here in this regard, but your statement is not true at all considering the actual state of things. And yes, 1C stopped retail manufacturing of Company of Heroes 2 after the public backlash, but I'm pretty sure Sega hasn't even censored the Steam version.
  11. Hello. I've noticed that some useful articles don't show up both in search suggestions and search results because they have namespace prefixes in the beginning, for example "Controller:" or "Emulation:". When I search for "DualShock" the only related article I get is "Controller" while also getting a result that doesn't even exist, which is a bit weird. http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Talk:Controller:DualShock_3_Controller The search engine seems to handle some of the prefixes like "Developer:" and "Publisher:" properly, but not these ones. And even for those I'd personally prefer if they actually showed up among search suggestions while ignoring actual prefixes in the beginning.
