MP-412 trivia change

I know it's going to get reverted, like literally every single one of my other edits i've made on here, but i got rid of the statement of the automatic ejector being properly shown in BF3, because technically that's talking about how the gun functions in real life, and the admins here just hate that kind of stuff soooo much, so why not just get rid of IRL stuff like they don't like?

First of all, "The reload animation is different between games" is not trivia - if it was, it'd be repeated on nearly every page.


Second, the [[BF:IRL]] policy exists because generally people come to the Battlefield Wiki to learn about guns in the Battlefield games, whereas a place like IMFDB is a better place for such commentary as it's a gun enthusiast's website. It's a policy that keeps the main body of articles unambiguous as to what is portrayed in game (as opposed to what isn't).


Main point: not all of your edits have been reverted. Some have just been corrected for spelling and grammar. Others have been trimmed down to remove superfluous information and unfitting language. Obviously some have been outright reverted, but sometimes this is necessary.


The Admin team are not infallible but in general we know what an article must look and sound like to follow [[BF:MoS]], and any changes are made purely to that end. I try to explain exactly why I made changes in the edit summary but this is not always possible. Remember, you can leave a message my [[User_talk:FluoxetinePatch|talk page]] if you want to discuss revisions or if you need further guidance.


The somewhat harsh truth that all editors must make peace with is that there is always room for improvement, and usually that comes from someone else, but in of itself this is a fundamental strength of the wiki format. Instead of making posts complaining about every change you should either discuss them with us or adapt your style. Growing that thick skin is the first step on the path to being a self-sufficient and competent contributor, and I genuinely want to help you do it.

Look, i appreciate you trying to help, but i'm a lost cause here. It's pretty obvious that i don't like the changes/revisions my edits keep getting. I keep complaining and honestly, i don't want to fight you anymore. I ask that you ban me already from further editing. I can't contribute much in the first place becuase i don't even have any newer Battlefield games, and everything about the older games is already well-detailed (in your eyes). I don't and i won't like how the format and rules are here, so it's better to get it over with now and not let me edit anymore. I've had similar problems on other FANDOM wikis in general. I'm not really welcome on other wikis, and this place is no execption. I can't edit the way you guys see fit at all. Since i can't edit things how i see fit, i would rather not edit at all. Please, do that for the greater good of this community so i can't keep ruining things. I hope you see what i truly mean.

I had one of my edits changed back as well, under Peter Müller I included that Norway was where we first see Stefan in the prologue as if you get close enough before the game goes into slow motion, you can see very clearly the defining characteristic on Stefan (netting, tank number, logs tied to side of tank.
