  • Hey Lacrossedeamon, WLF359, an employee of Guerilla, just messaged me back and told me that there will be an AMA, if there's any questions you would like to ask Ashly Burch and Lead Writer Ben McCaw, tell me and I'll relay them to her so she can ensure that they will be answered. :)

    WLF359 : Hey! Just wanted to let you know before the official announcement: for the 1 year anniversary of Horizon, we're doing an AMA with Ashly Burch and the Lead Writer Ben McCaw on March 2nd on the Horizon subreddit. Might be interesting if there's still stuff missing on the Wikia!

    If you have any questions and are going to participate in the AMA, you can send me your reddit user name (or the question you asked) so I can make sure that they answer your questions :)

    • Thanks so much for passing those on. It was really great all the responses. Was surprised at how many questions they answered in total. Hopefully they schedule more cool events like this while we wait.

    • It's no problem, and I hope so too!

  • Hi Lacrossedeamon,

    I'm thinking of linking some Frozen Wilds content into the main wiki header so that the DLC content will get more coverage, however, I am having a dilemma between three of the formats. Would like to know what you think about it in this talk page.

    Cheers.

  • Would you prefer Banuk or Carja punishment?? We can dump you in a frozen forest or bury you in the sand up to your neck (only for a few days). Which will it be?

    • Carja. Didn’t even have to think about it. I wasn’t built for the cold. Nora would be the most preferable though. Oseram seem more likely to execute. What about you?

        Loading editor
    • Actually, being buried up to your neck in dirt will still kill you. The shifting/compacting of the soil around your body would basically constrict you and cause you to suffocate slowly. So either way would suck royally.

    • .... good point. I basically live in a frozen tundra right now so I think I would take Banuk exile. I'd try to befriend some forest animals and cuddle up for warmth. Ugh but yes both would suck. Nora outcasting seems so tame compared to these. They're just like "ok you can't live here anymore."

    • The Utaru seem like they’d be pretty laid back as well. The Tenakth not so much.

  • Hi Lacrossedeamon,

    A member of the Fandom staff has reached out to me and informed me that the HZD Wikia is now a candidate for video showcases, one of the features of Wiki Modernisation . It aims to reduce the number of ads on the site and improve the wiki's performance. In the future when they start producing videos, the Fandom staff may contact the admins and other users to get involved in writing the video scripts, or be involved in the production process. To get a clearer idea, you may want to check out the examples of the different videos they may produce .

    Cheers!

    • Hey I know you’re taking some time off but I wanted to bring something up with about videos. I was recently contacted via Reddit by one of the editors here who wants to make videos. The person, http://horizonzerodawn.wikia.com/wiki/User:Random_Side_Quest, has a blog post similar to the message he sent me with links to some of his works. I’m think the person can help us get a start on this.

    • Very cool - FYI I would love to help with this, too. I have a Media Studies degree & I am good with video production. I need to figure out how to get paid for this.

    • Hey all, I've checked out the blog post and damn is that amazing content. 

      I've notified the appropriate FANDOM staff member of the interested parties (Random_Side_Quest and Queenmirelurk), hopefully they will reach out to contact us soon.

  • Hey, just wanted to ask why did you put "Firestriker" in the Ranged Weapons article? I remember it was an old name I put in the article a couple of months back because I couldn't remember the name of "Firespitter". ><

      Loading editor
    • The Firestriker and firespitter are two similar but different weapons. The former being a more polished and stronger version of the latter. The firespitter can be found with bandits while the only place I can think off the top of my head for the Firestriker is the quest where you kill Zaid. They're both included in the game guide

        Loading editor
    • Ahh I see! I didn't think the name I remembered wrongly is an actual weapon in the game, haha!

        Loading editor
    • Yup they're similar enough to be easily confused and the striker isn't nearly as prevalent as the spitter in game.

  • Hey, great work on uploading all the Karakter concept art! I really appreciate it, cause I've been wanting to get those uploaded for ages and haven't had the time.

    That said, though, could you try to provide more descriptive filenames for your images? I noticed most of them are named IMG_####, which makes it hard to search through them. Using the original filenames from the website, or just making up your own, would be nicer.

    Also, make sure you include licensing information when uploading images- that's important for legal reasons. For concept art in particular, I always try to fill out the entirety of Template:Fileinfo and include a link to the original source.

    • Will do that later today. I've been hoping they'd release more portfolios and stuff. BTW your Oseram edit: I'm not sure if 'surname' is accurate. I don't think the names get passed so a father and son could have different last names if their professions differed. Maybe 'byname' would be a better fit? It's the medieval term for what became modern surnames.

  • Hey there Lacrosseddeamon! A member of Guerrilla Games' community team reached out to me on Twitter and told me they were interested in sending some power contributors of the wiki a gift for all the hard work they've put in here : > Please send me an email at doug@fandom.com and I will relay your email to them. Thanks again for all the hard work!

  • Hi all admins and fandom staff,

    I have created a To-do list, if you have any tasks that are need work, or you are currently working on, please include them in that page. Also, I have created an Editing Guidelines page. For now, it is empty as I feel we need to discuss and decide what we should settle on in the talk page first, so feel free to pop by to give your two cents. I have also added a "Contribute" dropdown in the Wiki Navigation under the "Horizon Zero Dawn" level. Right now, it has the Code of Conduct and To-do list, but once the editing guidelines are established, it will be placed there as well.

    Cheers.

  • Hi Lacrossedeamon,

    I am currently considering you for admin rights as I have noticed your consistent contributions to this wiki, as well as your ability to communicate and work with other active users. If you would like to become an admin, please answer the questions below honestly. If you decide that you do not want to be admin, then it's no problem and you do not have to answer the rest of the questions below. 

    1. Do you plan to regularly contribute to this wikia? If so, how often? (e.g. everyday/once a week/etc.)

    2. As an admin, what do you plan to focus on?

    3. How long do you plan to remain active on this wiki?

    Cheers :)

    • 1. I try to contribute at least once a day. 3. I hope to see this wiki through a long and fulfilling franchise. 2. Hard question, this is the first wiki that I've been consistently active. I'm not quite sure what being an admin entails. What I view as my greatest contributions are not content based but my post on talk page which I hope gets user not to think about just the articles but the actual layout of the wiki itself. I am however currently trying to work on category flowchart to run by you to see if you think it makes the wiki more easily navigable or not.

        Loading editor
    • Yep, I've seen the categorising you have done, and have noted that it has made the wiki considerably neater. As an admin, you are mainly in charge of the wiki's maintenance (check out the Wiki Maintenance category and Special:Insights page), and communicating between active users to prevent or resolve conflicts.

      You can read the Admin's How-to Guide for a quick overview on what you can do, or check out the Community Management Help page for further information.

      Important note: The community development staff has requested that we do not change the design of the wiki for the next few months, as the current version matches for the other language wikis.

      I have granted you admin rights, take a look at the admin bar at the bottom of the screen to start. Use your new powers wisely :)
