Size of Mod Pages

We've been pretty lenient so far in ignoring the image limitations, partially due to the fact that they were somewhat hidden, and partially because we assumed that they would not be abused.

Unfortunately, the image submissions and content size of your mod is exceeding any reasonable limit for this Wiki, so we will have to ask you to cut it down to one overview page with a maximum of 8 images.
I understand there's a lot of work that has been put into those pages, so I would suggest to just save the sources of the pages somewhere else, until you find a proper host your documentation, and then upload it there.
Please have all the pruning done within the next 4 weeks. After that any pages or images exceeding this limit will be removed.

The same limitations will be applied to all mod pages, and some official rules will be posted on the Guidelines page.

Sorry about this "sudden" enforcement, but the Wiki was never really meant as a hosting platform for modders...

Too big?

Very sorry to learn this. Naturally we'll do what we can.

I do wish that this had be mentioned at an earlier time and documented. We never intended to "abuse" the BI wiki as claimed. The fact we had images in the ACE1 documents for well over a year without complaints would make one thing there was not a problem.

Unfortunately the timing of this matter sucks, given we just announce we are going open beta. And everyone is looking at the documents, no doubt why you decided this is a problem. And this is going to look bad for BI as well, because you just kicked the biggest supporter of Arma2 off your server.

I have asked Kronzky for clarification. This was not the stance of BIKI admins in the past. Even BI, asked about this very topic, was okay to have community projects put their documentation into BIKI. --.kju 11:30, 5 December 2009 (CET)


Thanks - appreciate that. --Evil Echo 20:06, 7 December 2009 (CET)

Page Edits

Be advised that the 30-day deadline given for editing your pages down to the limits specified above is passing today.
Please make sure any content exceeding these limits is removed by tomorrow, or I will have to do the edits myself, and my trims may not be the same ones you would have chosen.
