JS on the wiki

Do you know how to import JS to the wiki? I've tried to google a bit and can't really figure it out (I'm mostly working in python so this web things is a bit foreign to me). My idea was to make a map of all the stone cairns and make it intractable so when you click on a cairn so see the info about it, and a screenshot of the specific location. I've done a test for a couple so far, but if its not allowed/you don't want it, I wont continue the project.

I think knitting would be a good addition different types of wool could be scavenged from sweaters and found. A new skill could be added increasing the quality of handmade clothing.

Baiting wolves

Ive noticed that in the description about baiting wolves there is only one sentence that is the wolf will be distracted. I think it should be added that the wolf goes away a considerable distance after taking the bait and will not attack player no matter how close he gets.

Add flint/stone knapping and flint/stone arrowheads/knife blades?

Flint/stone knapping is an important survival tool in real life and would fit in really well in The Long Dark. Would also be far less contrived than randomly finding a forge to craft metal tools. Flint/stone tools would however have far less durability than its metal counterparts.

adding warmth/weight ratio to clothing page

I thought the clothing page could be improved by adding warmth/weight ratios so that it would be easy to sort and see which clothing would be useful in different scenarios. I started to add them myself, but then on a whim I took a look at the page's history, and sure enough it had already been done ( However, this change was immediately reverted by some anonymous person, and never restored.

I think this should be restored, as I think it is exactly the kind of thing I want from a wiki page---factual and easy to digest.

I couldn't find any talk pages (i'm more familiar with wikipedia's style of editing) so i'm posting here for discussion.

Fridgerators & Freezers

Does putting a food item in a fridge or freezer prevent it from decaying? If so, does this also apply to Hide and Guts?

Removing inactive bureaucrats

Per wikia rules, I am opening a discussion regarding the removal of the current inactive bureaucrats/administrators:

Last edit of the first bureaucrat was January 2017. Last edit of second bureaucrat was May 2017, then August 2017 and last September 2017. Due to his inactive, lack of interest and motivation of this wikia, I don't feel he should have rights that allow him to do top changes as I am the only active bureaucrat in this wikia along with the best fellow administrator, Velonews.

I am opening this discussion if you, community members (Including staff) are okay with me sending a report message to Wikia Staff in order to remove those two inactive bureaucrats.

Notice: Walkthroughs

Hello! How is everyone doing?

I would like to post an announcement regarding the walkthroughs. There are three type of walkthroughs:
Video Walkthrough
Text Walkthrough
Text and Picture Walkthrough

As of now, no video walkthroughs are permitted in this wikia. They are best done on The Long Dark Guides on STEAM or anywhere else, just not on wikia as they can not be edited by users and they deemed to be self-promoting.
Ontop of that, videos not produced by Hinterland Studio is subject for immediate removal from the wikia. Exceptions may be given.

Text walkthroughs, consisting with pictures or not, are allowed without any restriction. We would appreciate if anyone writes walkthroughs along with pictures in this wikia on specific pages. Take for example how well typed the walkthrough was done on Episode 1 and Episode 2. Kudos to whoever made them.

Any further concerns or questions, feel free to comment.

Steam Awards Nomination

Thought I'd share the fact that The Long Dark is featured on Steam's store page where Will is literally gambling with wolves. :D
Oh, and you can also vote for it for the December Awards.

IMPORTANT! Halloween Information are needed!

Hello survivors!

The Hinterland Games executed a new Halloween event for the year 2017! This is the second time they launch a Halloween event, the first being in 2016.

This sounds very interesting and I created a Halloween page for that. Unfortunately, my pc is unable to handle The Long Dark which means I only got the game on my PS4 and the event is PC-exclusively, the page will really need your help!

Expand it by adding more information, changes to the environment and more importantly, some pictures. I would appreciate that, many thanks!

Combine the four fish articles?

Smallmouth bass, Coho salmon, Lake whitefish, and Rainbow trout, all have nearly identical information that applies very generally to all fish. I think a "Fish" article which had all that information in one place, then a separate section on each fish (or a table) to compare the various weights, calories, difficulty catching, and list the description of each fish would be a lot more convenient. Plus, you could just link to [[Fish]] like someone tried to do in Lantern fuel.

I would like to announce that I created a character infobox. It's the best I could do and is subjected for further improvements. For now, that's the most working character infobox we could use!

The very first infobox was added on Grey Mother page. More can be added soon. For wildlife, the infobox might be same or different. Thank you!

Long Dark community header

The new image for the wiki wordmark is of very poor quality. It should be changed back until the new one is fixed.

Lake Gunshots - Alternative ending? Karma?

Hi, I was playing in the story mode, when i complete the mission name in the title (I chose to steal the bullets) i notice that the poor girl was dead and she left me a... not very friendly note in his cabin. My question is, if i would have avoided stealing, will she be alive in the morning? Or would die anyway? I'm thinking in redo the second chapter while I wait for the third, and I really would not mind doing the mission again in order to get a better ending, is it worth it?

Also, i considered that the final line that she give in the letter must be somehow of 'shadow' of a future 'Karma'? Besides trust, do you think there will be decisions that will change the story? Or affect his development? With the third chapter comes a new protagonist, perhaps she introduces us to a new style of game or a more advanced mode where each mission and how to effect it changes the path.

URGENT: Character infobox template

Hello community members!

It's not a strange thing that we do not possess a character infobox template. We need to make all character pages (Included wolves, bears, wildlife) to have a template for their characters.

Does anyone of you got a good idea what exactly information our character infobox template should have? The basic information will be, obviously, name, age, nationality, First see and last seen (EX: Grey Mother first seen in Episode 1 Chapter 1, last seen Episode 1 Chapter 4), status, voiced by, etc, etc.

I am listening ideas! Let's make all character pages better with those templates. Thank you.

Wiki spelling suggestion

I would like to suggest that we uses Canadian English spelling for the wiki. As the game is set in Canada and developed by a Canadian studio, it seems logical that we use it on this wiki.

Canadian English is normally closest to US spelling, but some words are the same as British English.

It doesn't have to be strict rule, but rather a guide, so that if there is any dispute about a spelling, we will use the spelling that is most common in Canadian English.

This website has some good tips on standard Canadian English spelling, as well as a searchable database of some words.
