    When will this be updated properly?
    I can lend a helping hand, if needed, but I will need some more info on difference between ranks and such :D

    I've noticed this might better be suited for the suggestions topic?

    What do you mean "updated properly"?
    I think the page you linked to is just auto-generated for the item.
    More rank information can be found here: https://wiki.baystation12.net/How_To_Sol_Gov_Guide
    There is also already an in-deph forums post which maybe we should put onto the wiki..

    My gripe was with the fact that those pages (that are present as linked in by other pages) are still active and empty.
    Perhaps removing them would help, to alleviate confusion?

    You are correct and i am in favour of your proposition.

    That is one of hundreds of auto-generated useless item pages, I don't think it's possible to delete them all sadly.

    Well, we can still try :D
    One page every day and it eventually gets bad-page-free.

    It's actually very easy! This user > https://wiki.baystation12.net/User:Pybot can delete entire categories in a matter of minutes. Talk to a wiki administrator to get the login details and use https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Pywikibot to delete the pages. (They may need to be elevated to an admin-bot account for deletion.) Should be pretty easy to figure out - this is the category: https://wiki.baystation12.net/Category:Object

    Good luck. I never finished actually being able to connect to the codex/code so the wiki would be autoupdated for these items, thus making their usage terrible and dead. Additionally, they were *supposted* to be part of a namespace that wouldn't appear in the searchbar or anywhere else, but for whatever reason, probably the same reason some of the extensions were messed up, they still appeared anyways. It was made with the intention to be super easy to revert. My recommendation is to delete all the objects and keep the machine pages since they actually can be of some use.

    Checklist of things that you will need to remove/revert/manually fix:
    https://wiki.baystation12.net/Main_Page
    https://wiki.baystation12.net/Category:Item
    https://wiki.baystation12.net/Category:Object
    https://wiki.baystation12.net/Template:Infobox_object

    Check all pages with the template https://wiki.baystation12.net/index.php?title=Template:Item_link and remove references to any items. May have to add a category to the template then go find the pages that way.

    It should only take an hourish to fix it all. This is the first time I am hearing you guys were having trouble deleting the pages so I apologize I didn't let you know how sooner.

    E9b (Command Master Chief) is a rank reserved for the SEA, otherwise your right.
