Welcome to factorio! We hope you will contribute much and well. You will probably want to read the help pages. Again, welcome and have fun! Kovarex (talk) 21:07, 2 October 2013 (CEST)

Hey there! I just started playing Factorio and I really want to help make this wiki a complete and useable resource. I saw your post on the forums so I figured your might be able to answer a question. I'm fixing some dead end pages such as Armor_making_1 by redirecting them to the proper pages, however Armor_making_1 seems to be a name used internally by the game. Should those pages contain information about internal game usage aside from just redirecting them? Cakestantinople (talk) 03:34, 6 February 2014 (CET)


Well, those pages have been created automatically, they might be wrong or outdated. You can prove that by looking into the prototype files of the factorio installation directory. Currently I'm not in front my computer, so I can't check that. If you have problems to find that please PM me in the forum. Ssilk (talk) 23:24, 6 February 2014 (CET)

Work vs energy

Units says "Please don't mix work with energy!" - why not? In real life work is just the change in energy. Eg: if a thing has 300 J of gravitational potential energy, and I do 100 J of work to push it uphill, then now it has 400 J of gravitational potential energy (assuming 100% efficiency). Immibis (talk) 03:44, 19 February 2014 (CET)

I added some sentence to that article and hope it makes the difference clear. Energy is not work. A gravitational potential energy is only a potential energy. You can use it only, if you move the object. Moving needs time. Time is the difference between energy and work. Etc. Ssilk (talk) 12:04, 19 February 2014 (CET)

no offense but...

do you just put commas every time you stop to take a breath when reading a sentence out loud? That's not how English works. Like I said, no offense is intended, especially considering I know, based on your profile on the forums, that you are German. Perhaps you should look up English guides on the web? I'm sure are plenty of guides for comma placement on the web, as it's one of the more difficult-to-learn parts of English grammar.

Hehe. Well, I've had always problems with these part of the English grammar. I remember one English examination (now 30 years ago), where the teacher called my work "random driven". Seems, that I now really need to learn it. :). I found this http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/commas.htm - is there more to know? Ssilk (talk) 13:03, 20 June 2015 (CEST)

Language Bar on main page

Hi Ssilk, how about we put the {{Languages}} bar on the main page. It would be much easier to know that there are translations of the main page. For the moment I find it difficult to know. --Commander Keen (talk) 07:15, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Concerning new pages

Hey there!

Noticed you had made some new pages, Charting and Character. Since they concerned Radar and Player respectively, I've merged them with those pages. Generally, when it comes to editing wikis, less pages are better than lots of small pages, because it makes finding info much easier, and keeps users from having to click through multiple pages in order to read info. Trust me, I have experience with this. To that end, I'd like to ask that you append info to pages that are related to info that you're trying to add, instead of creating new pages. It makes the wiki more organized, and makes it much simpler. The edits are good though, they add good technical info. Just please append info to existing pages rather than make new ones. Mishka, TheWombatGuru and I are currently working on reorganizing the wiki to make it more professional and easy to read. Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions. :) --Gangsir (talk) 21:39, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
