Pretzel Knot on Banshee[edit]

Hello GoneIn60. The reason why I singled out Banshee for the coasters that have a Pretzel Knot is because Banshee is currently the only coaster operating to feature one. I realize many people refer to it as a Batwing, but the way the entrance and exit of the inversion is formed is supposed to make it look like a Pretzel. I use RCDB for this stuff. I will also update the description of the Pretzel Knot on how it's different from a Batwing. Thanks. Tjkovack (talk) 15:54, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Mentioning abbreviations in lead[edit]

Hi GoneIn60,

I noticed the partial revert you did on the article of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. What I meant with my edit summary, the "not used at all" bit, was that we do not use abbreviations or common names throughout articles, so there is no reason to mention that in the lead. Take for instance Grand Theft Auto V, though it's safe to assume dozens of websites, magazines, TV programs call it GTA, in the article the only use of GTA is for GTA bucks, the in-game currency. There were several discussions about stuff like this at WT:VG, I could look them up if you need more convincing. Kind regards, --Soetermans. T / C 23:42, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

P.S. You also re-capitalised the m for multiplayer in the infobox (see WP:MOSCAPS).

@Soetermans: Thanks for leaving me a note. I thought about it shortly after reinstating the abbreviation, and I actually agree it should be removed in light of the fact that it doesn't appear in the body of the article. As for "multiplayer", I had initially re-capitalized it based on the way it was presented in a few other game articles, but after reviewing the guideline's recommendations for list items, I also agree it shouldn't be. I'll undo both. --GoneIn60 (talk) 06:55, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for understanding, you're a good sport! (is that thing people actually say? :D) Kind regards, --Soetermans. T / C 16:02, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
