  • Hi there,

    Since four new major characters have been introduced to play a part in The Last of Us II, should someone edit the 'Character' navigation menu bar at the top of the page to include Yara, Lev, Jesse and Dina?

    Just an average completionist who likes to see everything 'fit' together! :D

    Thanks!

    • I agree, we need to update that. The only problem is, I have no idea how to do it.

  • Hey M67! :D

    Given the new game play trailer came out (O.O) I was wondering if we should update the community messages on the Recent Activity page. The messages still references now outdated information, like the Left Behind DLC and the announcement of the sequel back in 2016 so it could do with a repaint.

    Any suggestions of the sort of things we should add and do you think any of what's there is worth keeping in?

    Thanks as always ^_^

    • I would suggest waiting until the game is released, or at least waiting until we know more about the game before adding the templates.

  • Can I create a page for the scanner the military uses to see if people are infected or not?

    I feel it would be worthy of a page because it's how Joel and Tess found out that Ellie was infected casting away all ambiguity for her purpose of being smuggled. Plus it's seen in gameplay when that line of people in the quarantine zones was in trouble with those soldiers and were being scanned by them using it. 

    I think I could start off the page by saying:

    "The scanner is a device used by the Military to check if people going in and out of Quarantine Zones are infected with the Cordyceps Brain Infection . It's a handheld device that is held closely to the back of the person's head who is being scanned to scan them. When the scanner beeps the scanning is complete and if says "positive" the person is infected and prompty executed by the military via lethal injection or by gunshot should the person resist."

    If the military didn't scan them they probably would've never found out about Ellie being infected.

    • Hmm. Interesting point. My only problem with that is, we don't know what the device is actually called in the game. "Infected Scanner" might work, but you should probably get Snivystorm's opinion on this as well.

    • Personally, I'm not a huge fan of making the page. I mean, we could make it, but then we have little to say about it beyond "reveals infection" and it's place in the story, which is already covered on the military page. But then we are a wikia, if there was some way the page was more than the section given on the military page, then I can see it working as it's own page.

      Regarding the title being conjecture, we could always make a template like has been made on TARDIS wiki to inform readers the title is based on conjecture, as seen here:

    Me and NFG were wondering if you'd give your opinion on a recent matter here: Thread:43102

    Thanks in advance :D

  • Seems this wiki is not as great as HZD.

      Loading editor
    • How so?

      It is a lot less active, but that is because there has not been new content for quite some time now. The Last of Us Part II is still in development, and there is not much news to report about it.

  • Hey @M67 ^_^

    Just saw a user has posted several blog posts recently like this: http://thelastofus.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:That_Walking_Dad/Minimalist_No-Damage_Grounded_Walkthrough,_Part_1:_Hometown

    Are they not classed as advertisements, which are not allowed here on wikia given it is not a free advertising site?: http://www.wikia.com/Terms_of_Use

    Thanks

    • Hmm. I wouldn't say that his blogs are advertisements as much as they are "how-to" blogs. They seem fine to me. It's not like the guy is blatantly promoting his Youtube channel or anything.

    • Fair play, that's why I figured I'd clarify first rather than outright deleting them. Thanks for the assist :D

    • No problem. That's what I'm here for.

      Btw, I think you're doing a great job as an admin!

    • Oh, thanks a lot ahaha :) just doing my thing. Wish I could be doing more but life's a bit busy right now. Nice to know you're still around popping in too :D

  • Hey M67 ^_^

    I'm almost heartbroken to hear you're considering retiring from Wikia - you were here, almost as guide for me, since I first arrived. You've stuck through it all these past five years with us: a hard working, stellar administrator and staff member doing your bit to keep the community going as other have drifted away.

    While I respect your decision to let your activity here take a back seat, I do hope you won't leave forever - even just the occasional return now and then would be enough. Don't worry about this place, I can assure you I'll still be here doing my bit to keep it ticking as best I can.

    Regardless, I respect your decision to want to leave and, should you do go through with it, I wish you all the best for the future!

    Your faithful editor, Snivystorm :D

    • Thanks for the kind words! I'm really more considering just taking a break from Wikia as a whole. I'll be available if you need anything, so just drop me a message here or on Community Central and I should respond soon.

    • Phew, that's good to hear ahah. :D Shall I go and change your activity status to "semi-active" then?

        Loading editor
    • Sure. I'll be around for a while longer in case you need help with anything.

        Loading editor
    • Done. Glad to hear you'll still be here. :)

  • Hey there, Braden. I've recently offered Snivystorm a spot on the administrative team in addition to removing Fireburn's rights as he hasn't been on the wiki for well over a year. I'd like to know your input on these rights changes and receive your decision to reach a consensus. You can read the threads here and here. Thanks!

    • Sorry for the late reply. I support promoting Snivystorm and demoting Fireburn12. In fact, I've thinking of promoting Snivystorm for a while now, especially considering that I'm thinking of leaving Wikia.

        Loading editor
    • That sounds good. With your consideration of retirement and my inactivity, Snivy would make a great addition. Sucks to hear you're considering to leave though, I hope you choose whatever is best for you.

        Loading editor
    • I don't really plan on leaving permanently--at least not right away. I'll be hanging around in the background in case Snivystorm needs a hand with anything.

  • Hey ^_^ We need help with a matter at Thread:42893. Reckon you could give us your view?

  • Hello again :D

    I was just creating some of the mentioned character pages and I began to wonder what really warrants the page's creation. I've been making them due to noticing how many red links we have in the characters navbox, which is far from ideal, yet (as I've realised) they lack a massive amount of content anyway, so I just wanted to clarify whether they are worth making. I also noticed we deleted the page for Reuben previously for lacking any substantial content beyond their brief mention as well.

    If it's cool, I'll keep making them 8) If not, is it best we just remove the red links and leave them as references?
