This Wikia and iblobtouch.github Codes

Pages that contain little to no information, and nothing but a code for a tank on iblobtouch WILL be deleted. Even if it lists some small facts, that is still a low-effort page. I don't care how hard you worked on the design, if you worked that hard on it, work hard on the page too. There is no excuse for a bad page so long as you try. Writing one sentence and then copy-pasting the code doesn't cut it. List the technicalities, at least. Let everyone know what it does without forcing them to copy-paste the code to an external website. I have been deleting pages like this for a long while, but I figured I might as well let everyone know so they don't pop in the first place.
NOTE: This is by NO MEANS making fun of the user whose page was linked above. It was used as an example purely.
This was one of the many rules soon to be incorporated in the Policies page, but it's getting out of hand sooner rather than later. I'm not known for being strict about things, but I'm cracking down on this like I did OP pages. Those are just as low effort, and I'm not afraid to call people who've done ONLY OP conceptions out for it. From now on, expect the moderation and quality of pages to be tested a lot more. Even in my joke pages I try to keep the quality up. A conception being a joke is not an excuse for it being bad either. But when pages like 'The laser' have potential based on what the code is, it's just not right the page is barren with nothing but a code and no explanation.
TL;DR: Don't use iblobtouch codes. Rules page coming soon. OP pages are still considered low quality. Expect low quality pages to be deleted.

If you want, I can cook you up a template that can hide Tank Codes. You can make that the Wiki Standard for codes, if you like, ’sup to you. Example below:
32*circle*#ffeb69[{"angle":0,"xoffset":0,"yoffset":0,"width":0.1,"baselength":85,"length":85,"basereload":0,"reload":0,"basedelay":6,"delay":0,"delayed":true,"hasKnockBack":true,"type":0,"knockback":0,"disabled":true,"spread":0,"b":[0,5,600],"damage":65000,"comment":""}, {"angle":180,"xoffset":-100,"yoffset":0,"width":10,"baselength":115,"length":115,"basereload":0,"reload":0,"basedelay":6,"delay":0,"delayed":true,"hasKnockBack":true,"type":2,"knockback":0,"disabled":false,"spread":0,"b":[0,5,600],"damage":65000,"comment":""}]
at least something's happening to them.
This is a good idea as some pages are just giant iblob code.
but can i still use pastebin links?

I agree. I hate those pages. Lack of information, no technical. Nothing but code.


Just boasting around about how cool they are designing a tank

Don't even bother to write about technical, etc.

Technical is important for some complex tanks

Codes are fine but it shouldn't be the focus — merely a visual aid in trying out some of the tank's features, not the centrepiece of the page. Actual content is important.


Anyway, Codes are fine but it shouldn't be the focus — merely a visual aid in trying out some of the tank's features, not the centrepiece or main bulk of the page. Actual descriptions of the tank and its functions are more important.
