Man! You have translated the English page of "Antenna" instead of creating the antenna/ru! - Thank you, Man :).


Thank you for all the translations into Russian! Playing KSP led me to learn a lot of cool things I didn't know Russians had done, so it seems appropriate for the wiki to have good Russian content.


Hi, I have no idea of the Russian language, but isn't Karbanaut more like a synonym for Kerbonaut and not Kerbal? — xZise [talk] 16:18, 17 August 2014 (CDT)
- It's True! Thank you.

Okay good, just a little note you created a few double redirects (the MediaWiki software only allows a redirect to a page not to a redirect). But no worries I let User:BobBot run and fix those, I just wanted to be sure about that. — xZise [talk] 15:28, 24 August 2014 (CDT)


CrazyCo, спасибо за исправления, но разве ориентация кораблей/ракет не гироскопами управляется?

Вопрос снят, маховики есть часть гироскопа. ^_^"

Не совсем так, маховики - это как раз непосредственно исполняющий механизм поворота космического аппарата - их вращение обеспечивает поворот аппарата, в то время как гироскопы - составная часть инерционной системы ориентации - они всегда вращаются и их положение определяет направление осей в связанной системе координат, если хотя бы один перестал или "сложилась" рамка гироскопа - аппарат потерялся. :)

Using “default” in lang

Hi, you only need to use “default” in {{lang}} if the default value should be different from the English. So for example {{lang|en=Main Page|de=Hauptseite}} does always show “Main Page” except on the German page. — xZise [talk] 05:50, 23 September 2014 (CDT)

It's true. But, changing value "en=", will change default values. Оn the contrary, if value "default" is present. But, Copy&Past'ing value "en=" for other languages is easier. Hunting for many hares.


Hi, you edit multiple Russian pages. There is currently a test running which adds a “searchable” index (for example in Russian User:BobBot/indexes/ru), but it does use the English page name if there is no other name defined via {{DISPLAYTITLE:…}} (with a colon not a pipe). So you may add that to the beginning of the title and on the next run of the bot, the pages should show up with the text given there. If you want to add multiple aliases (similar to how command pod also links to command module) add them separated via a pipe (|) to that list ({{DISPLAYTITLE:Foo|Bar}}). In theory the first name should appear also in the header (which is “User talk:CrazyCo” in this case) but this option is disabled and I can't simply switch it on. — xZise [talk] 05:50, 23 September 2014 (CDT)



I've noticed you have changed the "unit" to m³ in tables. In the kerbals' world there is no pure m³ due to resizing factor of 1.25! The 7,5kg and 5kg is the mass of 1 unit of solid and liquid fuel. I've corrected the fuel tank#Dry mass and wet mass, but as I see you have translated the old version. Have a nice weekend! NWM (talk) 17:43, 24 October 2014 (CDT)

Part names

We use here the official names (as they are in the part configuration file) and unfortunately Squad is inconsistent with them (MK2 and Mk2). The infoboxes are pretty sure at the correct locations as a computer program automatically generated them (and not accidentally wrote Mk2 instead of MK2). So please check the part configuration how the part name is written and if there is a mistake do not copy the content but add {{move}} to the beginning so I can move the pages.

You can of course create a redirect if the part is already using the correct name but there might be a popular different spelling. But be aware that the search is case insensitive if a page with the current capitalization doesn't exist (e.g. search for “MK2 crew cabin”).

I've changed the redirects back from MK2 to 1.25m Adapter Long, MK2 Bicoupler and MK2 Monopropellant Tank but the version histories are still there if you want to salvage anything. — xZise [talk] 18:53, 1 November 2014 (CDT)

KSP translation

Hi CrazyCo,
I'm Mowaw, better know as simon56modder on the KSP forum or on CurseForge.
I'm the manager of the project Language Patches, which regroups French (developed by me), Spanish, Italian and German patch for Kerbal Space Program. I know you speak Russian fluently, so I had an idea. Can you help me in translation for a future Russian patch ? I can't speak Russian at all. I'm using the wiki to create a translation patch, but I need your help for more things. Can you help me ? You can contact me here :, I will give you more details.

Use of <br />

Hi. Could you please avoid frequent use of the <br /> in articles. It is considered very bad practice to insert it between paragraphs, and can actually prevent MediaWiki from correctly creating HTML paragraphs from the wiki markup. It also introduces inconsistent style across the wiki. Articles should generally make no attempt to control vertical spacing, as that is set as a site-wide policy by the site's CSS.

The occasional use of {{clear}} is normally not a problem, to control vertical spacing in the context of floating images, but that is generally the only vertical control that articles should contain. There are some limited situations where br tags are useful and acceptable — they are not completely prohibited, just should normally be avoided as much as possible, and never used routinely in the breaks between paragraphs and headings. Correct wiki markup is to just leave a single blank line between adjacent paragraphs, as I have done with this message. Thanks.

Just as an note to CrazyCo: When there is a newline between two segments it'll create two separate paragraphs as seem in Murph's comment above (between CSS and The). An example: [talk] 08:34, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
