Citations Edit

Not sure what the point of having the citations there are... all of the data was handwritten directly from the ingame upgrades/descriptions. ~ GAdr tc@ 19:02, November 24, 2011 (UTC)

No they weren't. The items which have citations were added before the game came out, from a video. The fact that the game is now out does not mean that the citations can be removed. The citations show the original source of the information. --user452 00:55, November 27, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, actually, they were. I redid all of it and added the rest from ingame 9 days ago as 75.164.152.50. So the 'original source' is directly from the game itself at a friendly fire shop. ~ GAdr tc@ 10:54, November 27, 2011 (UTC)
The text before your edit is identical to the current text. It is irrelevant if you rewrote the text, it was already in the article before you rewrote it, and it is identical to your rewritten version.
The first source for that information is the videos, as can clearly be seen. It was cited correctly when it was added, there is no reason at all to remove that citation. --user452 11:16, November 27, 2011 (UTC)
I can see how the "Level 1 of every upgrade is simply buying the weapon, with no actual upgrading taking place." should have a citation; I didn't realize I removed it.
However the weapon tables I rewrote and added from in-game. If the text is the same that's because it's all from the game at it's roots. ~ GAdr tc@ 12:03, November 27, 2011 (UTC)
As I have already said, the fact that you rewrote the exact same text is irrelevant. --user452 12:25, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Question Edit

Where in the game is it called "Weapon Customization"? I've searched all the game text and it appears to be exclusively called "Weapon Upgrades". --user452 02:13, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind, I just checked who created the article, and I literally facepalmed. --user452 02:16, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
The Saints Row Wiki still has a reputation as being unreliable, and despite him no longer being active, his mistakes remain. Sometimes I wonder if it would be faster to go through his edits, one by one, and verify the information he added, rather than slowly finding yet another mistake month after month. --user452 02:25, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
