Is this page necessary?[edit source]

  • This page seems excessive, and could likely just be merged into the main BuildCraft 4 guide. -- AgentTadpole · Staff talkcontribs 15:18, 30 December 2013 (GMT)

Unnecessary content[edit source]

off topic User:Alistaire do you not know how to creat wikilinks? :P -- 09:23, 31 December 2013 (GMT)

Apologies for the repetition[edit source]

I totally missed that page while creating the Pipe page. Sorry for that. Would it be ok for me to add the additional Transport Pipes to Alistaire's page?

Also how do I upload the images, I don't appear to have permission? An image for the pipe always looks better than the red square :)

I'll check for the other Pipes pages now and ensure correct linking.

I'm just learning how to edit a wiki and I'm doing this for my learning so I can teach my son the mods in FTB

Yes, add additional pipes to there as you wish. If the pipes are only in BC4, add a small note in the pipe description "(Only in BuildCraft 4)". I may move this to Pipes (BuildCraft), it seems more fitting as a regular page than as a guide in itself. On the note of icons, they should already be on the wiki, just under the name of Waterproof and Conductive Pipes. Are there multiple names for the same item, or were they renamed in BC4? -- AgentTadpole · Staff talkcontribs 17:46, 31 December 2013 (GMT)
The pipes have all been renamed in BuildCraft 4. Conductive Pipes are now Kinesis Pipes, Waterproof Pipes are now Fluid Pipes. How do you normally handle these sorts of name changes? S3nt1n3l (talk) 17:51, 31 December 2013 (GMT)
They'll be added under the new name eventually, but the manager of the ore dict system is on a vacation at the moment. I'll see if I can work that system out, but there are no guarantees there. This is something I don't really mind about. Either you leave the name in the crafting table and note that they have the same textures as conductive and fluid pipes, or change the name to conductive and fluid in the crafting table and note that they've been renamed to kinesis and fluid. -- AgentTadpole · Staff talkcontribs 17:54, 31 December 2013 (GMT)

Translation Text[edit source]

As I understand it, the <!--T:X--> lines are all automatically added when a translation admin marks the page for translation, and shouldn't need to be added manually. According to the translation guide, you just need to enclose the page content in <translate> Content here </translate>. -- AgentTadpole · Staff talkcontribs 18:07, 31 December 2013 (GMT)
I'll refrain from using them. Does wrapping the template trans code inside the translate tags do an harm? S3nt1n3l (talk) 00:07, 1 January 2014 (GMT)
I'm just as new to this system as you are, so I don't really know. Not sure what you mean by "template trans code", but I believe the idea is to wrap only content that should be translated in those tags. So, for example, you wouldn't want the style settings of a table translated, however the content within that table would be good to be translated. Therefore, you wouldn't want {{Cg/Crafting Table}} translated, because it would become {{Cg/mejsla tabell}} and the wiki wouldn't know where to find it. -- AgentTadpole · Staff talkcontribs 00:44, 1 January 2014 (GMT)
Don't add any translation related tags, a translation admin will prepare the article for translation. -- 15:13, 1 January 2014 (GMT)
