Page update reasons[edit source]
I have neglected to add reasons for my changes to the two pages you had edited. Its been a while since I needed to add one so I apologize for this.
I changed the name of the Named Monsters page to Unique creatures for two reasons. One we have a policy on naming things and second it was to keep it in line with other pages for unique game assets such as Unique weapons.
I changed the layout of the Unique creatures page to make it more stream lined as it is just a list or hub for the unique creature variants. Detailed information should reside on the creatures page or on the creatures species page if not enough information is available to justify an individual page.
I changed the location section of Hero's Last Stand to make is short and simple like other pages. However, as you mentioned in my talk page some areas do not become available till after certain quests are completed. Since I have yet to really work on individual location pages just regional pages such as Emerald Vale I believe a "How to get there" section may be better than a simple location section. This "How to get there" section could detail how to arrive at the given location from multiple fast travel locations such as the Gunship crash site, Cascadia landing pad and Terra One Publications. I would also like to add a map snippet in to the info box with the location (Hero's Last Stand) and all locations mentioned in the "How to get there" section. Though any page that has the Gunship crash site as a fast travel location should contain a "Note" section informing the viewer that the unship crash site does not become available till after Radio Free Monarch or Sophia Akandes quest, I forget the name.

Policies and Projects[edit source]
Item capitaliazation[edit source]
Games tend to capitalize everyworkd, I don't know why, but I suspect it is for development reasons that may or may not exist anymore. The problem with this when it comes to a wiki is that it doesn't read well in written English. We put in rules pretty early on to make the articles read more naturally in the content policy out lining how to do capitalization. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible, but the general rule of thumb is, if the noun is generic, it should be lower case. Of course there is always exceptions to the rule.

If you have a problem with how something is ran in this wiki bring it to Saka's or my talk page or the Discord (preferred but not necessary). There is no reason for a bash blog. We are doing our jobs in maintaining accurate and standardized pages and content for the wiki viewers. We also have to take into consideration how things look on the mobile version of the wiki.
Even Saka and myself do not see eye to eye on everything but we talk through it and come to a decision on how things are done. If you want in on these conversations join the discord. However, if you decide to stay you will have to show us your willingness to follow policy and you cant get mad when we change your edits, because it will happen. Saka changes my edits and I change his. If we have a problem or are confused by it we talk about it, except it and move on. Gausroth (talk) 03:20, April 15, 2020 (UTC)
