Cleaned up article, corrected some mistakes, edited the relevant section in the Scouting page to agree with this one. Kivena (talk) 10:15, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

--==September 28th, 2010== The basis of a "Wiki" is an encyclopedia. Information put out in a way for others to find easily. I don't know of any encyclopedias that contain 1st person narratives in them. I suggest your 1st person details "Here is the straight deal from the Dooobles" be removed. Also, Wiki articles should not use slang. It should be precise and to the point. I suggest removing the "(Porgue!?)" and the "(Do WuHat?)" as they do not conform to Wiki article context. Thirdly, you explain that "There is a lot of misinformation on the forums and in-game about the 'cloak/MWD trick.'" If this is the case, you need to provide sources to prove your case, instead of basically saying 'Hey, I'm Dooobles and I am right.' I understand that you want to keep your work and have credit for it, but you don't need to splatter your name over the article to do so. Readers can check the history and see who maintains the page. That is my $0.02. Basta kindred 06:16, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Minor edit: Nyctef's use of "an" could be correct in a certain context. If you internally say Microwarpdrive when you see MWD, you would use "a". However, if you pronounce it internally as the letters (M-W-D), you would use "an" to create a pause between your article and the acronym. So you both are correct in that case.

UniWiki consensus

Topic Cloak Trick and topic Scouting are at odds over use of the MWD/cloak maneuver. Authors and subject matter experts ought to reach consensus.
