  • Hey! So, I'm aware of the Discussions Guidelines and the meaning of Rule 3, however, I posted a thread with the incentive to encourage people to link, something that would ultimately push more people to discover the rest of the wiki. I hope this is fine by you? Hopefully I'll also be able to (with your permission) introduce them to the editing of articles, and other matter cerning wikia at large. Cheers, User:CosmicChronos

  • Seeing as how I'll probably bring up multiple different subjects.

    Regarding adding images to articles, do you'll (or you) say add images from the page it's being added to specifically, or do you'll (or you) add it from the uploads page and then add it to the article?

    • Ok cool.

      Well, the policy is actually becoming much more different than I had imagined, so it actually won't be much too similar to the Avatar/TLOU standards.

      What's the situation on this wiki with the plurals and possessives? Are the s and 's put inside the brackets or outside([Ellie|Ellie's] or [Ellie]'s)?

        Loading editor
    • That's up to personal preference, the "lazy" way is [Ellie]'s but one should do the [Ellie|Ellie's] way when editing.

      Up to you, if you ask me though. :)

  • There is another Wiki of The Last of Us. I think we should probably do something about that possible because it is kind of confusing.

    https://the-last-of-us.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

    I found out about it while reading this Fandom article.

    • Awesome @M67! I noticed the URL no longer worked as well, so it's official :D

      What happened to the user who plagiarized our work?

      No idea. Without that wiki, I can't think of an easy way to track them. I barely remember their username as is.

  • Do yall have any kind of expansion or revamp templates here? (Aside from clean up and stub.)

      Thanks :D There's only just the template file to burrow and no docs or anything like that, right?

    • Yup, just the Quote template itself. You can also change the color codes to match your wiki's color scheme.

  • Does this Wiki have a Manual of Style? I want to help build up pages to the best we can make them because I noticed that some articles have sections that others don't.

  • The one regarding the headings. I wanted to know why, for example, Founding and history would be (is) chosen over Founding and History? Also while on this subject, how do you'll feel about case on titled article pages, like "Melee weapons" instead of "Melee Weapons" and "Baseball bat" instead of "Baseball Bat"?

      Ahh I see, the difference here is those are titles on the pages, rather than headings. Honestly though, I'd rather use sentence case for them instead. Reckon we should open a discussion together to get it changed?

      I don't know; i'm an admin on another wikia, so I was just questioning the format/rules/policy here for insight. Another wikia im fond of actually strictly follows title case entirely (article pages and headings. Not sure about category pages though, but I don't see why that'd be an exception for them).

    • Well, it's up to you as you're the one who has taken note of it. I'll support making it all sentence case should you decide to open said discussion. :)

  • Hi,

    On the bottle page  it is stated: 

    "bottles are a better distraction than bricks because they make more noise when smashed." 

    What is the source for this claim? Is it general consensus, gut-feeling, has someone analyzed the code, or has Naughty Dog offically stated this somewhere?



    I have played this game's story over ten times on various difficulties, and my gut-feeling has always been that there is no difference in the amount of noise a bottle makes when thrown compared to a brick. If there is, it's negligble.

    So, I decided to test/workshop this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FOZoxv_JDk

    My test resulted in what I had suspected, there is no difference!

    • Hey there!

      Good find. You're right, I even replayed a bit of the game myself and found there was no change. I went ahead and removed the tenuous information.

      Thanks for pointing it out and providing proof :D.

  • Hi Snivystorm,

    The edits to both Bill's wiki page and W Earl Brown's wiki page were made in order to replace dehumanizing and degrading language regarding Bill's sexuality and his relationship to Frank. Homosexual/homosexuality is outdated terminology. Homosexual is not a technical or colloquial term - it’s a slur. Ellie’s wiki page correctly states that she is a lesbian without any dehumanizing language surrounding the topic, so I don’t understand the problem. I would appreciate it if the changes made to both Bill and Brown’s wiki pages were left.

    Thanks.

      (Probably) Because it's not an L (assuming you're right) and is instead an uppercase i or special character. This is further supported by the concept of his name when spaced out in certain areas—l(insert space)overheard(insert space)this.

      Side Note: One of the admins never answered my question that I asked a while ago (regarding a policy).

      What policy was it? Also, given it will be a different topic to the matter here, I recommend you start a fresh message/discussion either elsewhere on my wall or another staff member's to ensure we do not clash with the topic being discussed here. Thanks!

  • Hello once again! I want to propose the idea that we have a headline at the top of Lev Benioff's page saying "You may also be looking for The Last of Us Part II character, Lev." and vice versa. It would heavily avoid confusion as many TLOUP2 fans will look to this wikia ahead of the release of the second game. :D

    • There is a way to create and add disambiguation pages to articles. I'd look into it, but I'm rather short on time today.

        Loading editor
    • Hey there! I went ahead and made the disambiguation page for them. I've also added the appropriate template to each of their pages.

      Thanks for bringing it up!

    • No problem, I wish the staff on the Uncharted wikia were this organised and responsible xD

        Loading editor
    • Well, I'm not a part of that wiki so I can't speak on behalf of them. Uncharted content has been stale too - much like ours until recently. Some editors just need new content to come out to regain the drive to edit at a wiki again.
