Hmm, to be honest I like the idea of a Locations page, it can't hurt to have a nicer looking collection of locations (e.g. Having a Weapons page even though we do have a Weapons category), which will be linked to via the main HZD Wiki Header > Horizon Zero Dawn > Locations. The article should also probably renamed to just "Locations", which is in line with our "Category articles" like Potions /Tribe /etc., as the name is too lengthy.
Also there's the debate on how to organise the links in that article. Do we go with organising them based on our current categories? And if so, do we go by Area or by Type? I think that would be a topic we need to discuss with everyone in the community.
In that case I feel the note page should be merged into the World page along with the real locations page under the title World. As for how to organize it that’s hard to say as we don’t have a geopolitical map to go off of and borders are iffy.
But say I was doing just the regular USA I’d break I’d have headers for the main cultural geographical regions, NE, SE, SW, WC, MW etc. with blurbs describing each under each header I’d then have sub headers for each state within in that region and a blurb for each state, then under state sub headers, I’d have county sub headers and so on til you get to the smallest location. I’m not sure the Wikia would allow enough nested headers for that to work though.
If I remember correctly, Heshbruwn is taking a break from Wikia for a while, and I can't recall when she will be back. That being said, other users and I can do our best to add interlanguage links to the pages.
I would do it myself, but I am hesitant to, as I do not read Ukranian.
Hi, I saw the notification in my email and have added the interwiki link onto the main page.
Also, thanks for speaking on my behalf M67PattonZippo :) I'll be back on the wiki intermittenly in early/mid December to mid January, then I'll disappearing until next year's May where I'll (hopefully) be able to stay for a month or two.
Unfortunately, that's a bug that has been around for awhile now, and there is no way to specifically choose which image is used to represent an article in the category page. This is because the image is automatically chosen by wikia's backend algorithm (you can find out more here ). By right, the infobox images should take precedence unless the image is newer than the ones in the gallery, but there are a lot of inconsistencies on this rule (as you can see from Aloy's newer infobox image still working out fine in the category page)
Thanks for the heads up! I'll file a bug report so that hopefully the Staff will have an easier time debugging this. I'll also bring it up in the Community Council so this gets more traction :)
As we move forward we plan to have wiki videos in many communities, with Horizon Zero Dawn wiki being a candidate for videos. If you are interested in which video types we might use you can find some great examples in this blog post. If we start producing videos we may reach out to you, other admins, and users to be involved in writing video scripts or being part of the production process.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Springteufel (talk) 13:30, May 23, 2017 (UTC)
Hey Heshbruwn, thanks for your feedback! We are still finding ways how to work together with users and we are testing different approaches. Depending on the video formats that we plan for the wiki in the future we may reach out to you and will ask for specific support from you as experts about the topic.
Hey Heshbruwn! No worries, and thanks for this great recommendation! I really enjoyed watching the videos (I am also a huge HZD fan).
Would you please contact Special:Contact with that topic? Thank you!

I hate to butt in, but I haven't gotten mine either. I've ordered things from the Czech Republic before, and they usually arrive in the U.S. within a month or so. Although I did have a package get hung up in Customs in Chicago for 2 weeks.
Hey, I wasn't quite sure where to bring this up, but "meta" pages like the To-Do List, Rules of Conduct, Editing Guidelines, etc. should probably be placed in the "Horizon Zero Dawn Wikia" namespace (i.e. prefixed with "Horizon Zero Dawn Wikia:" in their titles). This keeps them separate from standard game-related articles.
Er, I just realized that didn't actually work. Merely prefixing it to the title won't actually change the namespace; to properly change it, you need to select it from the dropdown when renaming, like this.
No worries! The ins and outs of wikis are really confusing- I was lucky enough to be made admin on an already well-established wiki when I started out, but without that guidance I'd undoubtedly be pretty lost myself.
Incidentally, I'd recommend checking out Special:SpecialPages if you haven't already- I've found it very helpful for getting a general idea of the state of the wiki.
Hey there Heshbruwn! 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I will relay your email to them. Thanks again for all the hard work!
I prefer not to put my social media links on the wiki, sorry :\ If you want, we can arrange a time and date where we can pop by in the chat so you can private message me. We're both in Asia so timezones shouldn't be much of a problem.
