Why? it's part of the recomended

Doesn't matter. Read the Editing guide please. Duplicating entries is useless.

I believe you are not correct, following your logic then all games system requirements wouldn't have a recommended section in them if it was the same as the minimum. So i'll have to write something on the recommended. And yes if this keeps up we'll have to call a staff member.

And they don't. Plenty of games such as 18_Wheels_of_Steel:_Across_America only have minimum section.

Why are you being so childish? I'm trying to help you understand PCGW's editing rules. There is not single well-kept page that does what you do. Is that not telling you something?

Requirements section came through multiple versions over the last 2 years, current consensus that we agreed that we should only feature recommended settings, if they are different than base settings. Please try to keep it this way. Repeating the same information, just because publisher does it really makes no sense.

Calm down. This isn't that major thing to get up in arms.

As with everything else, as long as information is in the article and correct, it's usually fine, but what Blackbird is saying is that formatting the stuff according to guidelines lessens workload others have to do to format the stuff according to guidelines later on. Especially indie titles are usually listing same information as minimum and recommended or do not have recommended at all. With requirements it has been practice to leave recommended blank if it's the same with minimum, to make it visually easier to read.

Blackbird is correct here. As specified at the end of the sample article and in the editing guide, we never duplicate entries for the recommended section. This has long been the case for the wiki. When a game doesn't have recommended requirements - we don't duplicate them. When the requirements are only slightly changed for recommended hardware - that is the only part mentioned in the recommended column.

In the future, if you're unsure, please consult the editing guide. Additionally, you may also find some help and explanations if you ask on the forums or in IRC. And well, if a long-time editor points out something, it is likely they are right :)
