Hi Zhangyunfan. Welcome to English Wikiquote.

About WarcraftEdit

Dear Jeffq:
May be you are right and the article of Warcraft should be trimmed.
Now I have modified some parts of the article. See HERE. This is an example of what I have modified. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Zhangyunfan (talkcontribs) 16:37, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

First, please read the welcome info I posted above, especially the recommendation that you sign your talk page posts. You should also read Wikiquote:How to edit a page, as you are using a lot of HTML unnecessarily. We try to stick to wiki markup to make editing easier for everyone.
Based on the modified section, it seems that you are trying to do some alternative grouping, but I'm afraid I don't get what that grouping is. (I imagine is has something to do with play or action modes, but that isn't made clear either by the WQ article or anything I've found so far in w:Warcraft Universe.)
Wikiquote articles should be comprehensible to any reader, not just fans of each subject. They should follow formatting and structure guidelines for articles of their type, not use something so novel that it will leave the average reader bewildered. This is a common problem when editors add quotes, so you are in good company. (I am constantly trying to get Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans, of which I am one, to avoid dumping whole scenes and MSTie-only knowledge into that article.) There are probably many places where Warcraft can be quoted, discussed, and dissected by fans with plenty of inside knowledge, but this isn't one of them.
If you haven't already, you might take a look at User:Jaxl/Warcraft. Robert's severely trimmed version of this article achieves three major Wikiquote goals:
  • It pares the content down to a select set of pithy quotes. (I'm not saying it must be this small, but it should be kept to a reasonable percentage and should focus on unique and interesting quotes, not just stuff people say.)
  • It is organized by work (game) and provides source information (with scenes) that allow readers to more easily verify the information.
  • It uses standard wiki formatting, avoiding HTML markup wherever possible.
In short, this article can be understood, edited, and verified by the wider Wikiquote readership, and avoids copyvio. These elements are essential to make Wikimedia articles useful. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 18:13, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
