  • Hey there, Snivy! Recently, I got the wiki affiliated with the Jak and Daxter Wiki and there's some guys who work over there who are interested in helping out the wiki. They recommended that we add a navigation feature for the "Portals" component on the main page. Essentially, when you click on one of the logos, the section will immediately transition to a list of categories for said game. It's a bit difficult to describe, so here's an example under the "navigation" section.

    They also recommended that we create a Discord server for the wiki. As Discord is one of the most popular chat services and more wikis and communities are using it everyday, I think it'd help the community become more active discussion-wise, and can also allow us administrators to discuss things about the wiki in an easier, faster method. We can also integrate Discord to be the wiki's official chat and advertise it on the main page.

    Personally, I like the idea of these additions and would like to see them put to use. However, I wanted to get your input on the matter (you too M67 as I'm sure you're snooping around this thread). In addition, I've also made some minor changes to the main page. Let me know what you think, thanks!

      [...] And for the Discussions, you mean the Discussions feature by Wikia? That's pretty odd. What OS and browser do you use?

      I'm using Mac OS Lion and Firefox. Both still work well, but could use an update.

    • Alrighty, I've gone ahead and joined the discord - lets see where this takes us ahah

  • Snivy! Hope you're well.

    What are we going to do about creating a page for the mystery woman in the PGW trailer? I recommend we make a page just titled "Unnamed Woman (Laura Bailey)", but it's understandable that we need a name to create a page.

    Also, have you had a look at The Last of Us subreddit? Very useful for release date predictions and fan art.

    Have a good day!

    • Hey Swilky :)

      I'm against creating a page for the unnamed woman at this stage because we know next to nothing about her, like her name, which (as you implied and I confirm) can lead to us renaming the page constantly, messing up redirects and cluttering articles with outdated links should we add her article prematurely. Once more information is released, then we can make her page :D.

      I browse around the subreddit from time to time (though not as much as I did when the original game released). I stick by waiting for Naughty Dog to reveal the date; predictions just get me hyped up only to be disappointed. The art is always a blast, especially ones that really work with the nature theme ^_^

      Cheers!

    • I have to agree with Snivy here. We don't know enough in-game info about the character (aside from her voice actor) to create a page right now. I would guess that things are about 90% speculation at this point.

  • Hi Snivystorn,

    Not sure you saw my response, but the point of my message to Swilky was that I'm a bit confused about the source for the date interval stated when Ellie was born (born January-March/April 2019).

    The Telegraph interview does not provide enough info for this interval to be proven.

    Unless I'm missing something, and there is another source available, it should be changed back to "2018-2019", or what's going on?

    • Hey Quaddo1, :D

      I did see your message and have removed that source too as it does not fit with our policies regarding what counts as a source. Granted, you could have removed the source yourself as it was inline with our wiki's policies, meaning you would have been fine to do so.

      A few minor notes though: Please remember, in future, that users receive a notification when another user sends a reply or message, therefore you do not need to start another discussion/message that states the same thing as your initial message to me on Swilky wall's as all it does it clog up my notification box.

      Further, users (including staff members like myself) are not around 24/7 as (like any volunteer) we live a life in the real world hence cannot be here all the time. As such, it is expected that users will take a while to reply, some as long as a week for users who can only check in on the weekends when free from school/jobs and so on. While some, like I, do their best to check in once a day, one cannot be expected to always instantly reply to a message within a 24 hour period so please keep this in mind and exercise patience in future.

      Bar that, good work on reporting the sources. Keep it up. :)

    • Snivystorm,

      Sorry for the clogging (if I could, I'd send a plumber your way asap). Since I posted (and responded) on Swilky's wall I wasn't sure you'd see my response. Now I know.

      I understand I could've done the changes myself, and even-though I'm very well versed in the world of TLOU, I wasn't sure if there were another source for Ellie's birth data or not.

      So, basically, I wanted Swilky either to respond and/or make the changes him/herself, but I guess I was being a little impatient in general, and I wanted to confer with someone else. Who better than a Bureaucrat eh :) ?

      Again, sorry, and thank you.

        Loading editor
    • It's all good pal and the clogging has been sorted. :)

      As stated by the policies, Swilky's link is acceptable, if they feel the need to add it, within the trivia section but the main body for fictional articles takes the in-universe sources as the truthful ones, not outside discussions; simply, if Druckmann wanted Ellie to be 15 by the end of the game, he should have had her mention that in game ahah.

      Anyway, your welcome :D

  • Hey Snivy, hope you're doing well.

    I was re-reading The Art of The Last of Us and I was thinking the possibility of us placing some of the concept art for each chapter on it's chapter page. For example at the bottom of the Hometown chapter page, we present this image:

    http://images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/38400000/Concept-Art-the-last-of-us-ps3-38418509-1900-792.jpg

    Just a possibility!

    Thanks!

    • Hey Swilky :)

      I'd be on aboard with adding concept art for chapters pages to the gallery/image sections on said page. However, we will have to verify that said concept art is as such and not fan-made interpretations/works.

      Bar that, I'm on board. Feel free to consult with @M67 or @NFG as well to see what they have to say.

  • Sorry, just thought it'd be interesting to show the similarities of the Canada's C7A2 and the game's assualt rifle. I was a cadet in Canada and have seen the C7A2 a number of times and as soon as I saw it the C7A2 immediatly came to mind and the wiki info of the C7A2 is true when I read through it which is why I linked it.

    • Hey there and welcome to the wiki! :D

      It's alright. However, wikipedia is not a trustworthy source to use when citing real world information, given (much like wikia) anyone can edit it and claim things they write on it to be entirely true. The more reliable the source the better. For instance, if the staff at Naughty Dog wrote an article wherein they mentioned they intentionally made the rifle similar to Canada's C7A2, then we could include that on the wiki. But they have not, so there is no legitimate source as such that we can use.

      I recommend you read our editing guides so you can better grasp how things here (and wikia) as a whole work to make your editing the best it can be.

      I look forward to seeing you progress as an editor.

  • Hey there, Snivy! So I've noticed this a while ago but I'm gonna ask you to see if you see the same problem. On the main page, does the Twitter widget no longer work, as well as where the Blogs, Recent Activity, etc., there are now double tabs? I'd like to fix this as soon as possible.

    Another question I have for you is if you think it'd be a good idea to update the wiki's design? By this, I mean the background. As good as I personally think the background looks and fits the wiki, I'm curious to know if you think we should change it to something related to The Last of Us 2? Like Ellie playing the guitar, etc. Or if you have any other ideas or questions for the wiki's design or main page, then I'm curious to know you have.

    Let me know your thoughts, and thanks!

    • Hm, that's strange, I don't believe I ran into that problem when I downloaded my files. I don't see any backup downloads either. I'm not entirely sure how you would fix that, maybe make sure you have enough space on your device (it's just a gigabyte I believe) and try again if you haven't. Other than that I'm not too sure.

    • I have plenty of space. It's gets about halfway and just shuts off. I might run it over some tech-savvy people at work and see what they say.

  • Hi, Im SteakBurger. Im here to bring attention to a user who has posted some content of the mature nature on the discussions board (2 3d models doing "stuff" together). (http://lastofus.wikia.com/d/p/3100000000000000819).

    I am assuming it isn't allowed, due to no other wiki I've visited allowng it, and no action has been taken yet since reported (although that is most likely due to timezones/no-one having enough free time to tend to it).

    • The "stuff" is pornographic in nature, however the filter kept triggering itself so I couldn't say that in the message prior to this reply.

    • I know I'm not Snivy, but I've taken care of it. Please excuse the lack of a British accent, lol.

      • Speaking British* I say sir, I do take high regard in your notifying me about scandalous activities on our beloved Wiki. (:D)

      All jokes aside, I apologise for my late reply. Yes, you're right; pornography is illegal to display on a wikia site (as are several other things I recommend checking out on our policy pages or Community Central's)

      Luckily, we have a team of staff here to makeup for when one of us is not available.

      PS: Thanks @M67, good to know I can count on you to keep the wiki clean! ^_^

  • Hey Snivy, what's with all the random dates that people are making up for many of the character's birthdays and events of the game? Just curious lol.

    • Seems to me like it's a troll messing about with the pages or a new user whose mistaking this place for the fanon wiki. As per usual, without appropriate sourcing, they cannot be on the wiki.

      Part II may add some dates in the future but, right now, we have to take unsourced information as false.

      Hope that helps :D

  • Hey there, Snivy! Since The Last of Us II will be coming out within a year or two (hopefully), the wiki is gonna become more active requiring a larger staff. Since I'm not as active anymore, another bureaucrat would be nice to help assist with picking out new staff and keeping the wiki in order. Since you're the most active, I'm offering you the position. Let me know what you think, thanks!

  • Last night i edited two articles, one on the military sniper and one on the assault rifle. on the military sniper i elaborated more on the type of reticle it uses, a russian based chevron reticle. i understand why this would be removed, but what i dont get is the removal of my tips for Factions MP regarding the assault rifle, mainly the use of two and three shot bursts, and the guns automatic fire accuracy.

    If i did something wrong, i would like some advise and guidance.

      Loading editor
    • Hey there. :D

      The reason I removed your edits is because the information you added regarding the Rifle's burst rate is advice more so than trivia. The advice is more fitting under the multiplayer section on the article. However, the advice to fire in bursts rather than "spray and pray" so to speak is already present - it's a waste repeating information the article already elaborates.

      As for the rest you added, such information requires adequate sourcing. As such, I'm going to add the {{fact}} template to the sections you have added, our way of indicating the information requires a reliable source. If you are unable to prove the disputable/uncommon knowledge, I'm afraid I'll have to delete it again.

      New users do take time to adapt to how wikis are run - it's not your fault. I advise you take time to familiar yourself with our policies to ensure you stay on track to becoming the great editor you are capable of becoming.

      Thanks!
