  • I think that stuff like "polish army" is a bit too generic and proper original names should be used if known (with a translation of course), as putting the actual name of the users only on English and American masks is too anglocentric

    • This is an English-language wiki, so with respect to language it's necessarily anglocentric. Unless the name of something in a foreign language is pertinent, or genuinely useful for disambiguation, it seems rather out of scope

    • Even though this is an English-language wiki, the idea behind it is to make it international. If there is not a specific universal translation in English for one term (i.e. "Germany" is universal, "Polish army" is not), there should be both the proper name and the translation. At least, if the proper name is provided, it shouldn't be deleted.

      • "'Germany'" is not universal at all. In German it's "Deutschland", in French "Allemagne", in Polish it's "Niemcy", In Japanese 「ドイツ」("doitsu").
      • Despite this, we do not refer to the name of a country in the language of the country in question because it's not relevant, and the same is true here.
      • If an unambiguous translation is possible, then it's moot. A Polish person who speaks English reading the article should understand "Polish armed forces" just as well as they would the Polish equivalent.
      • In addition, the use of languages is likely to force infobox entries onto two lines where this may prove unnecessary, where the height of infoboxes already presents formatting issues

      This wiki is principally an English language wiki, so it's my view that other languages should only be invoked for the benefit of the English text (i.e. where it's relevant and where a translation is provided)

    • I wrote a long and complex answer to your latest answer but this platform is retarded and just decided to crash and delete the message before it was sent, so I'll sum up shortly what I had to say:

      Firstly, my example was weak, I apologize for that.

      Secondly, there is a line to draw between the terms one translates or not, i.e. wurstel was not translated while cigar was, and in my opinion armies' names should not be translated.

      Thirdly and most importantly, in your edit you merged two different armed forces into one, which could be misleading.

      fourthly, the added reason of infoboxes' formatting is a non-problem, as it can be solved with the enter key.

  • I've had some issues setting the "Argentina" template in articles, as only the flag is shown and not the link to the category page. How could that be fixed?

  • Hello There everyone,

    Problem #1 dont know that i should clean my old gas mask i post in GP-5 article or not, it look so old, that i doesnt know cleaning it in anti-bacteria liquid soup is ok or not

    Problem #2 Gas mask i wish to buy, i cannot find a place where i can buy, instead of bid, where i can find S10 and M17 with reasonable price and not bid, modern gas mask for me is hard to find in my country (i live in Thailand) i cant really find those for cheap price and place to buy is nowhere

    Thank you

      • I've used dish soap and warm water with my helmet masks with no issues, so I'd suppose it'd probably be fine
      • I can't really offer any pointers in terms of acquiring masks. It can be something of a pain to get hold of foreign masks in my country, and I've got the benefit of being in the western hemisphere

    • thanks for the tip, can you tell me where can you buy your S10? i want to wearing that with my British Army field jacket

    Could You Please undo it or explain in more depth on what I need to prove, thank you for reading this

    • How do you know it was asbestos issuing from the inlet?

        Loading editor
    • I have seen pictures of asbestos fibers they look somewhat like fiberglass, and the stuff coming out looked just like fiberglass

      mixed with some fluffy stuff which I assume must be cotton and then there was the fiberglass looking asbestos
