  • Hi Snivy,

    Just checking in as to why you blocked the anon who inserted that speculation/leak on the Ellie page? I probably would've asked them to provide a source for the info first, but that's just me.

    • Hey @M67 :D

      I suppose you've got a point there. I'll be honest, I've been dealing with a fair few anons recently on my other wikis doing that - inserting false information but framing it as though it is legit.

      As such, I reached a point where it worked better to remove the edit and send the anon off for a while. Admittedly, had it been an actual user, I would have been more lenient and simply undone the edit and requested a source. But anons have irked me lately since most never do reply or are indeed looking to troll on the website.

      I found no information myself regarding this woman 'Kat' save for a tattoo drawing done by an IngeniousKat user on Deviantart that did have green on it (which I assume is the acid). Still, DeviantArt is mostly fan made content and I saw nothing in the picture or its user bio that convinced me it was endorsed by Naughty Dog.

      In future though, I'll try to give anons here a fair chance at first too; I suppose I got carried away based on my other recent experiences. I'll go ahead and shrink the block to just the rest of today.

      Thanks! :)

    • Ah, ok. That makes perfect sense. In fact, I seem to recall a similar edit a while back. Thanks for understanding, and I hope the situation on your wikis improves soon.

    • Thanks pal. B) Hopefully it does; always seem to get an increase in users like this during the Halloween period. Weird really.

  • Hey! I created a countdown for TLOU2 on the main page, figured it would be a nice touch to the main page considering all the hype behind the game. Wanted to get your input on it or if you have any other ideas to spice it up. Cheers!

    • Thanks! I was pretty skeptical with the last main page overhaul months ago, but I am way more pleased with this new design.

    • Agreed, the yellow is so much more inviting for an editor and it is still perfectly relevant to the game's colors (yellow, black, green, blues) All in all, pretty sweet

  • Hi there,

    Sorry for bothering you (again), but could you tell me if it's possible to use one page as a sort of template for making another? Starting a page from scratch is quite a lot of work.

    E.g. I would like to use this page: https://thelastofus.fandom.com/wiki/Salon_Note

    as a template for this missing page/artifact: https://thelastofus.fandom.com/wiki/Wanted_Poster_(Left_Behind)?action=edit&redlink=1

    It's always annoyed me that the artifact chain for LB is broken. Plus, I think Wanted_Poster_(Hero) would be a better name.

    • I understand that. My point is that we don't want to have tons of repeating trivia on several articles when we can narrow it down to a more respective article.

    • You guys have been busy chatting in my absense ^^ No worries.

      NinjaFatGuy wrote: What do you think @Snivystorm? Do you think these names serve enough canonical information for an article for Laura and re-branding the Pharmacist page? I suppose to some extent it can be considered canonical, but looking for opinions.

      I've always followed that the actual game is first in terms of canonical accuracy. I'd personally caution away from using the websites as the strict canon for their names - similar to how we don't consider Joel's full name as Joel Miller given the game's intended path never states that as his last name.

      However, I'd find it acceptable to include the name in trivia, similar to how we do for Joel's, since there is a (albeit dubious) source for the characters possessing those names in their fictional twitter accounts. If more people reckon it's worth counting as canon though, then I reckon we should apply that rule to all articles rather than have a mess of articles following different rules. ^_^

      It also ties back to what @NFG said about trivia though; if the girl and pharmacist's pages start overlapping in too much content then it voids the reason for having their pages separate.

      Sorry about that @Quaddo1 D: That's my fault - I was in a bit of a rush yesterday and didn't check if the prior edit's number was correct. I'll get to cleaning now ahah.

  • 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.

  • 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.
