Enemy Unknown (EU2012) - Enemy Unknown (EU 2012)

Hi. I had already asked why you had created a duplicate of the Enemy Unknown (EU2012) page called Enemy Unknown (EU 2012) but I see know that it is just a way to differentiate between the English and Russian sections for the game. The thing is that having both (EU2012) and (EU 2012) suffixes being used for the page names and categories is going to bring confusion on the long run since it will be very easy to create the wrong link when editing pages.

The solution in the past was simply to rename the pages to their corresponding terms in the language being used, such as Informacion for Info but that isn't optimal as well since all Spanish/Korean/French/Russian pages should be in separate categories, otherwise you'll get the categories to include pages of all the languages, which doesn't help to find a page.

So, for the sake of keeping things tidy, what I'd like to propose is that we use instead something like (EU2012R) as the suffix being used on the page names and categories, with R meaning Russian, regardless of the page name (which can be in Russian as well). That way EU2012 can be divided into (EU2012R), (EU2012K), (EU2012S), etc. So the different languages sections get properly organized and there's less chance for confusion. Or if you have a better solution I'm listening. :) Hobbes (talk) 12:02, 19 June 2014 (EDT)

Hello! Sorry for that. I haven't noticed your message there, and did not expect that someone will find my modest activity here. Thanks for advise though. I think Enemy Unknown (EU2012 R) is better for language affiliation recognition.
By the way, how to remove redirects? --HansOlo (talk) 14:39, 19 June 2014 (EDT)
To delete the pages? Just stick on the page: [[Category:Deletion]] and I'll delete them later. And please also include [[Category: Enemy Unknown (EU2012 R)]] on the bottom of the Russian pages so that they can be properly categorized (I also usually watch out for those things, so don't worries).

OK. Thanks for help! I'll mark them as soon as I can. --HansOlo (talk) 08:07, 20 June 2014 (EDT)
