  • Hey Sugarhoney,

    A recent message from someone on Reddit got me back thinking about DX and the wiki. Glad to see there's still an active admin here. Since I'm not active, and can't promise I'll have time to be, I think it makes sense to make you a Bureaucrat. So that if needed you can assign new Admins. 

    Would you be supportive of this?

  • I apologize for adding a certain to the Gray Death article but I was wondering how is the comparison unnecessary? I'm certainly not the first or the last person to make the connection between the Gray Death and COVID-19. I thought my edit would be useful.

    • Hi TheAntagonisticKitty,

      I removed it because it was a questionable comparison. What do they have in common other than causing a pandemic? One is a nanomechanical virus that affects the whole body, deadly without Ambrosia treatment, and is synthesized by the same corporation that also makes the cure. Whereas another is a respiratory virus, one of many (SARS, MERS, flu viruses, etc.), with < 5% fatality rate. There are may more differences than possible things in common.

    • There's a conspiracy that COVID-19 is actually manmade.

    • I agree with Sugarhoney. In general, articles should be relevant to the topic, and not tangential. Thus, real-world information that you find in the trivia sections is usually information that explains something about the topic, such as real-world inspirations for in-game content. 

      In this case, the additional statement of "The Gray Death shares some similarities to the real world disease COVID-19" adds no information that further elucidates the subject matter.  

      Additionally, as Sugarhoney explained, the added statement has questionable substantive value. Regarding speculation that COVID-19 is manmade, articles generally should not include speculation even for lore-related information, much less for real-world information.

  • In the comments for the Allison Stanek article, it was discussed that the article should be renamed from Allison Staněk to Allison Stanek (because the hacek mark is never used in any official source).

    However, because "Allison Stanek" is already a redirect page, it's not possible to rename the current article because the destination title is already usedby the redirect. So I tried renaming the redirect page to "Allison Stanek (temporary)", but that did not get rid of the original redirect page, and only created another redirect.

    Could you delete "Allison Stanek (temporary)" and rename Allison Staněk to Allison Stanek?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Sugarhoney,

    I inadvertently uploaded an image twice due to trying to rename it and was wondering if it is possible to delete the duplicate? The image to be deleted is photos.jpg from my edits to Jensen's Detroit apartment page.

    Thank you for any help!

  • I noticed that someone had questions about how the Orchid works, I did edit the page a little, but I have a video that explains how it works here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOVgSJQ7mHo

    Though I'm not really sure how or if I should put a reference on the page

  • The Deus Ex universe site (https://www.deusex.com/) is no longer online. Therefore, the timeline is gone. Do you think we should host a copy of the official timeline on this wiki to preserve a copy of the original source? Additionally, while the current timeline article has much of the official timeline, it is not a complete transcript of the official timeline because some of the wording isn't the same, and the article lacks the headings of the official timeline.

    The official timeline is still available at Feral Interactive's page ( http://www.feralinteractive.com/en/games/deusexmd/timeline/ ) - maybe someone ought to take a copy before it gets taken down.

    • It's unfortunate that they took down the site. DeusEx.com was age-gated, and so is Feral's DXMD site, so the Wayback Machine could not crawl them - otherwise we could simply link to the archive.org copy.

      Given the circumstances I think it's a good idea to re-host the official timeline on the wiki for achival purposes. I have a transcript of the original DeusEx.com timeline among my notes. Feral's timeline is missing some of 2029.

      Any suggestions for the page name?

      I also have the texts of SarifIndustries.com timeline, DeusEx.com HR+MD character profiles and faction descriptions, AugAware.org blog posts. Do you think any of these should be re-hosted here as well?

    • I think it would be a good idea to post all the content that you mentioned, given that they are no longer available.

      For the page name, we could use "Timeline (official)" to distinguish over the synthesized timeline that we currently have.

  • Hi Sugarhoney,

    Could you rename Category:EBooks to "Deus Ex: Human Revolution - eBooks". I am not sure if there is a way to do so, but just wanted to check. This is an old category made when DXHR was the first game to include anything called eBooks. Recently, I've relocated all the DXTF eBooks out of that category.

    Also, the categories for Breach right now simply state "Breach." Do you think we should restyle "Breach" to "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Breach" throughout this wiki, wherever it is mentioned?
