Nice news. Since your edit summary [1] suggests wording ambivalence already: I was wondering whether 'to attack' could become 'to progress' (the progress) and 'to defend' -> 'to sustain' (the sustainability) altogether. Just a thought to keep the quest for world dominance in the backhand :) --Indigo (talk) 17:23, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, more than ambivalence, I was worried about the BE/AE spelling of defen{s,c}e, but I think the one with the "s" is AE, and in the rest of the post there's also the AE "favorite", as opposed to the BE "favourite"; the wiki seems to be more AE-oriented (InternationaliZation and so on...), so maybe "defenSe" is ok.
Regarding using progress/sustain in place of attack/defend I don't know, I've deliberately chosen the current wording to make the post sound colloquial and friendly, trying to recall the simple actions that are often at the base of team-based games :) Is there anybody else worried about our secret plans to be given away and would like a more innocent-sounding "progress/sustain" couple? -- Kynikos (talk) 09:44, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi! AE is used almost everywhere in ArchWiki and it's dominant in any computer documentation, so using BE now is possible but adds some inconsistency with other content, which is (a little) annoying. So defense is the right choice I think ;)
Text of last news entry sounds nice for me, it's informal and simple. I find words like "attack" and "defend" are suitable here! — blackx (talk|contribs) 10:21, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks blackx, actually I wasn't even intentioned to generate all these comments for a small spelling indecision, let's close this and focus on more important tasks ;) -- Kynikos (talk) 15:49, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
Let me quickly add that I do like the phrasing now that you brought team based games into the equation. Should have associated that before :) Regards --Indigo (talk) 22:20, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
