    • Thanks! I'm (still) waiting on that hardware/software upgrade, so it might be a while before I'm on, though.

    • That's cool pal. At least this way you have a rapid way in directly on your wall at least ^_^

  • Hiya, I've been doing some research about the avoidable Bloaters in the Last Of Us since I've seen you post on the Bloater Boss Thread. The ones you cannot avoid are , The Highschool Bloater ( With Bill ) , I'm not sure about the Bloater in the dorms of The University Of Colorado ( I managed to take it out, With Flamethrower and moltov cocktail, different guns etc. ) I'm not sure you can avoid it since it's right next to the exit, I don't think you can avoid it but I'm not sure , The one with David you cannot avoid since you're trapped in a room with 1 exit , and as I've heard from you, you can avoid the Bloater in the bridge ( To Saint Mary's Hospital. ). Thanks for the help on The Last Of Us Page. Good day!

  • Me again, there is a user attempting to instigate negative reactions out of a user and me by using (basic) insults. This itself is minor, as the primary reason behind this message is to bring up several things that have been reported over the past week being unchecked (no-one has clicked approve/delete on them so as such they still just show up as reported). These include messages being written in languages most can't understand (while not a rule a few other wikis I know have it so that the language of the wiki is the one that is allowed and no others), a potential scam, posts that have no meaning other than to have fun (while im not against this itself I just know a few wikis that are a bit anti-fun and idk what this one is fully like yet), asking for personal details (names, I know a lot of wikis are against the asking of personal details but again, I don't know what this wiki is fully like), and as said to begin with - minor cases of instigation. ~~SteakBurger

    • Alright, I've gone through the first few pages of Discussion posts. I've cleaned up any obvious spam ones, but I did leave relevant foreign-langauge posts. You never know who might wander by.

      As for the problematic user, are you referring to Manu Legend?

    • The user insulting is TopalHaci. http://lastofus.wikia.com/d/p/3100000000000000945

      Manu it just seems is very, very loving of The Last of Us but just can't keep it to themself. It probably doesn't help however that they sometimes exaggerate what is happening in their post to get a laugh out of people, but they seem to bring a large chunk of activity in that most people will comment on Manu's posts to share experiences in game, (normally) relating to what they have posted. At times though it does get a bit annoying as it happens anywhere between once and 3 times a day.

    • Hey there. I've dealt with the messages - thanks for bringing it to our attention.

      As a heads up for future cases, I'd recommend you inform us right away rather than attempt to dissuade the user yourself, that way staff can deal with it straight away and you don't risk yourself saying something that can conjoin you with similar punishment.

      Happy editing and keep up the good work @Steak :)

  • Title basically says the gist of my question, which has arisen due to my notice of a lack of "active" moderation of the discussions (I am in no way saying any of you are bad at keeping things in check, youre all obviously not as the issue with that user the other day was swept up quick enough). I was wondering as I may be able to fill in for that position at some later point (when i actuslly meet said requirements) for when tlou2 eventually drops and for when the discussions board (and app) expands in user count.

    • Ignore this temporarily, a user is now threatening to pursue police action against the user that posted pornography the other day, an admin may want to intervene before anything else happens.

      Edit: Included link

      Edit 2: Scratch that, I may have been able to calm them down slightly.

    • I don't think there are any concrete guidelines as to what makes a good discussion mod. At least, I couldn't find anything in our policy pages about that. That would lead me to believe that it's up to the bureaucrat's discretion. You may want to ask Snivystorm or NinjaFatGuy, though.

      I warned the user on their message wall.

    • To answer your moderator question, we have a guidelines/request page you can check out here at: Rollback Requests

      If you meet the criteria, feel free to request for the rights. Although, you've yet to edit consistently here for one month so I'd advise you wait until you've got more experience and proved you are a dedicated member who comes here editing and/or taking part in discussions often.

      Staff requests will likely be required once Part II actually launches - I reckon you'll have more to do as a moderator and more wiki engagement with the community once the game's release sparks some life back in to the wiki

      Thanks ^_^

  • Hey ^_^

    Nice job on cleaning up those unsourced edits! Glad to see you're still alive and kicking on the editing scene :D

      Loading editor
    • Thanks, but it looks like there's more work to be done. I'm going to block the user and IP.

    • Hopefully they'll read all the policy pages and become more productive, but then troll accounts (especially anons) tend to just appear to cause terror.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. The thing is, I'm not sure this is a troll. This is either a very determined troll, or a well-meaning but misguided user.

        Loading editor
    • Time will tell. If they mean well, they'll read policies and ask for help; silence is always deadly.

    There's on going query, so can you provide your input on this thread?: https://thelastofus.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:43424

    Just notifying you I've implemented the changes we all discussed here. Feel free to adjust anything, like the welcome messages and navbar.

    Thanks!

  • 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.

        Loading editor
    • 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:
