  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.

Commas in numbers

Out of curiosity, where are you getting the fact that numbers have to have 5 digits before you can put a comma from? I know that in math, and in the games themselves, the comma is at every point that's a multiple of three digits to the left, but I thought I should probably ask you where you're getting this from to avoid an edit war. -EVsandIVsaurs 13:10, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

It's funny, I could have sworn I read that somewhere in the policies, but maybe it was another site. This site doesn't have a policy with commas and numbers. I will say that in the past various pages haven't used commas with numbers that have 4 digits, but I checked a few other places where they have five digits, and they don't use commas there either. You are right, the games do now have the commas with four digit numbers, but I do think we should be consistent with the past of the site.
Thanks for posting in my talk so we don't do an edit war, I wouldn't want to do that either.Linkmastr001 (talk) 23:10, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I think that I'll go ask one of the admins whether or not it should be put in. -EVsandIVsaurs 23:24, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
