deleted the Community portal/fr page a while ago, was it obsolete? And if so can I recreate it?

Hi, I saw that you had deleted the Community portal/fr page a while ago, was it obsolete? And if so can I recreate it? User:Tatoz

Sure! I saw you went ahead and did it already, which is good. Previously it was just blank redirect, so it's good to see it now in all glory proper! —Faalagorn/ 19:02, 6 June 2023 (BST) P.S. You can use ~~~ or ~~~~ to add your signature.

Keep up the good work

I see you're one of the two active editors here. Just wanted to say thank you for updating this wiki and for all your hard work. Kenji 03 (talk) 12:56, 12 June 2023 (BST)

Thanks for the warm words! I've been doing some loose edits for a while now, but now since I got the admin rights I'm not planning to go anywhere, though indeed User:Vaileasys is also back and did a lot of the great work before me! Either way, those warm words keep the motivation plus your works were good too! The only thing I've been thinking and briefly discussed with Vaileasys is whether the {{PAGENAMES}} are good to use instead of just the item name directly – especially since they can't be changed and sentence case is preferred, while the item names are in Title Case. If you are on Discord, feel free to join the #pzwiki_editing channel too, as I mostly talk there about the changes as I make them, else I will try to make the regular monthly summary reports in the PZwiki:News! —Faalagorn/ 13:11, 12 June 2023 (BST)
I'd join you all to chat on discord, but I refuse to give Discord as a company my phone number, so I cannot chat in the community. I've send you a direct message via discord though. Same user name there and here Kenji 03 (talk) 08:09, 24 June 2023 (BST)

great work

really enjoy your edits and hard work. Ikip (talk) 19:32, 25 July 2023 (BST)

Thanks! Doing what we can with Vaileasys, I'm glad it's being useful! —Faalagorn/ 19:35, 25 July 2023 (BST)
Again, great work! Ikip (talk) 21:25, 10 September 2023 (BST)
No worries, great work for you as well; took me a while to clean these up :) I also noticed that you marked a lot of pages as version 40; I guess that might need some cleanups later down the line! —Faalagorn/ 21:29, 10 September 2023 (BST)
version 41 is correct, my mistake. also i am indifferenet about the vidoes. if you dont want videos that is ok. Ikip (talk) 19:08, 12 September 2023 (BST)
So far I kept the videos, but I'll think how best would be to include them… TF2 wiki have a lot of YouTube videos for example, though we're not in the stage to do that yet outselves as it's a lot of work to keep. We don't have a proper support for embedding or linking to YouTube too. —Faalagorn/ 14:01, 1 October 2023 (BST)

Project Locations and Maps

Hi, I noticed you're the main admin around here. I wanted to thank you for shouting me out on the news section. On top of that, I also noticed that User:Ikip created a bunch of pages for the missing locations. I will do the cleanups for the Riverside locations, to save you a bit of work. I'm focused on there anyway.

Also, I noticed that User:Pohly is the leader of Locations and Maps, but they don't seem to be very active anymore. Maybe it's time to elect a new leader? I don't know, just something that popped in my mind.

Thanks for all the work you do. -ThinkDock1721

Yeah, I thought about it, we don't have a clear guides on electing a new leader, but I'll try to contact Pohly about opinion, would be healthy for a project to have an active leader! —Faalagorn/ 21:47, 12 September 2023 (BST)
I haven't really led a project like this before, but I'm down to learn! If you think I'm up to the task that is. I'm also on discord if you want to shoot me a dm, TacticalTeenager (yes its corny I was younger when I made it lol) Ive already joined the PZediting chat

New locations template for businesses with multiple locations

Pizza Whirled Logo.png

do you know How do you find and extract these logo's? Ikip (talk) 14:08, 19 September 2023 (BST)

It's User:Vaileasys who did that, not 100% sure if they can be extracted as such, or if they need some graphic manipulation based on Tiles images that can be extracted from TileZed and then merged (I did it in GIMP). Gonna ask him on Discord and will let you know! —Faalagorn/ 08:20, 20 September 2023 (BST)
I found the file as a tshirt logo in the files.
I would be very interested in GIMP. Any suggestions how to use it for a newbie?
I have downloaded TileZed but I didn't know how to use it.
Ikip (talk) 11:45, 20 September 2023 (BST)
Where is the map and all of the tiles in the game to find in tilezed? I dont understand how this program works, thanks in advance.Ikip (talk) 12:15, 20 September 2023 (BST)
I found some of the signs, in tilezed.

Zomboid Wiki - Straightening signs GIMP Tutorial Ikip (talk) 21:38, 3 October 2023 (BST)

Hello from the Indie Fallout Wiki!

Heyo, my name is Kate and I am the founder of the Independent Fallout Wiki (over yonder!). A few members of our community (including my kids) recommended your wiki as one we should reach out to in order to partner up with.

The Independent Fallout Wiki split off from the corporately hosted wiki to give independence a whirl on April 7, 2022 (founding date twinsies!) One of our goals is to strengthen relationships between other independent wikis, as our community has interests that span beyond Fallout and are excited to check out other independent sites. So we started a little affiliation group (here!) which is a list of indie wikis, organizations, and supportive sites.

On our end, we feature your website on our wiki as both an article and part of the home page spotlight rotation. If you have a Discord, we also feature it in our community server section along with links to your YouTube/website/videos. We have Cross Wiki editing events on an annual basis to introduce editors to each others sites, too! On your end you don't have to do anything at all (awesome, right?!)

Our hope is that these partnerships will successfully connect independent wikis, lead to new friends, and generally bring good vibes across the board. I appreciate you considering our request to join the list. If you feel like giving it a go or have any questions, feel free to respond here or message me on Discord (kateaces). Thank you so much in advance! -Kate Aces Container ClothingWasher.png Leave me a note! 05:49, 20 September 2023 (BST)

Hey! Thanks for reaching out! I wanted to reply earlier, but was busy and had to talk with fellow admins about it. Technically, while PZwiki is being edited by all willing users of course, it is an official one with the whole support of the developers, not technically independent per se (though not dependent on FANDOM and such). While we're not technically looking for advertisement as it's most likely folks playing PZ find us anyway, and we didn't explicitly planned/looked for cooperation, there's nothing against giving you guys some shoutout here and there. :) Guess I'll start with mention of the September 2023 PZwiki:News and see how it goes from there! As far as Discord goes, there's the official one that's linked in the site notice, and we all talk about wiki stuff on the #pzwiki_editing. Gonna add you on Discord just in case too (seems you have friend requests disabled, so feel free to add me there instead!). —Faalagorn/ 20:30, 25 September 2023 (BST)

view png files in tilezed?

how do i place and view these png files in tilezed?

Tilezed signs file names.png

Thanks! Ikip (talk) 13:42, 20 September 2023 (BST)

Oh, I don't have any idea 😅
But there's probably a site in internet that is able to do that, it would be something like: upload 4 images, it places them side by side, maybe even configurable. Then you just download the image, in the worse scenario, you'll have to screenshot it.
If there's not a site to do that, I may be able to create the code to do so. Keep me updated :)
But if it is needed to align them diagonally, it'll be way harder.
Sarah52 (talk) 16:50, 20 September 2023 (BST)
nvm, they not only are diagonally aligned, but also only in certain parts of the image.
It may be needed to use a site to get them from the png, then use another site to mesh them.
May I'm still able to do so? Not really sure.
Sarah52 (talk) 16:55, 20 September 2023 (BST)
Thanks sarah, also discussing here: User talk:Vaileasys. Ikip (talk) 18:31, 22 September 2023 (BST)
Not sure if I understand you right Ikip, but what I did for Tiles is to just align the multi-tiles in GIMP. There might be a way to do it automatically, but I'm not 100% sure about it… —Faalagorn/ 00:03, 23 September 2023 (BST)

photo dot removed

When you remove [1] the dot in photos, the corrdinate location of the place is lost. If you want to make a list of these locations, please do, and I will take screenshots, but please dont remove the dot (.) Ikip (talk) 21:39, 24 September 2023 (BST)

Thanks, though having the dot seems as a rough placeholder indeed, gotta think of a better way for these. —Faalagorn/ 21:45, 24 September 2023 (BST)
Yes, it is rough placeholder. unforuntately i set up each section of the template to show up dependant on the photo line.
It can be changed, but if we changed it to town t1 t2 t3 there would be numerous blank louisville lines. Currently, I like having extras hidden in case i find new locations, it is easy to plugin.
There are not to many new ones left, but if there is new ones i create, and there is a prefered way you want me to add them (without extra paragraph lines for example, which i see you are removing), let me know. This will help saving time with cleaning up.
Ikip (talk) 22:14, 24 September 2023 (BST)
You mean the business? Indeed, not many left after you added a lot of them :). As far as empty lines, I remove them, as it's more concise, so if you want to, you can add them without empty lines as well, saves me some work. —Faalagorn/ 22:21, 24 September 2023 (BST)
I only work on businesses.
Yes, I can remove lines, which can save you work. :) But again, not very many more businesses left. Ikip (talk) 22:26, 24 September 2023 (BST)
Oh, and as a general rule of a thumb for the preferred formatting style, it's mentioned in Help:Style guide. I haven't decided on preferred spacing between = for infoboxes and other templates, but the rest should be there. —Faalagorn/ 16:58, 1 October 2023 (BST)

Survival Guide

Survival Guide should be added to the main page prominently. Also the main page talk page should be editable by everyone. I would have added this to that page, but only admins can edit that talk page. thanks in advance. Ikip (talk) 22:19, 26 September 2023 (BST)

The Survival Guide is currently linked to one of the headers; I talked with Vaileasys briefly today and will take a look how to make it more prominent soon™. As far as talk page not being editable, that's something I'll have to take a look at, thanks for mentioning! —Faalagorn/ 23:52, 27 September 2023 (BST)
Vaileasys changed the talk page. thanks for response. Ikip (talk) 14:04, 28 September 2023 (BST)
I just added Survival Guide to the about template, right under FAQ, should be more prominent now hopefully :). —Faalagorn/ 20:44, 21 October 2023 (BST)
thanks! I found the page from google, it is one of the approximately 4 page links that are prominent on google under the wiki page. Ikip (talk) 12:11, 22 October 2023 (BST)

great edits as always

Such a good job. thanks. Ikip (talk) 20:42, 30 September 2023 (BST)

Hey! I've been busy catching up since you did so many edits, thanks you for the hard work this time around :) —Faalagorn/ 23:03, 30 September 2023 (BST)


thanks for clarifying, regarding:

User talk:LethalCitizen

These are from Vaileasys and were posted on Discord a while back, so you came a full circle User:Ikip. It was a pack of 22 logos and I believe most (if not all) should be uploaded already? I'll check when I'll have some spare free time. :)

Thanks. Ikip (talk) 20:36, 1 October 2023 (BST)

thanks for correction on this template! Ikip (talk) 21:09, 20 October 2023 (BST)

thanks for shout out


Thanks to the outsanding work done by our long time contributor Ikip, we have almost all businesses locations having a page and screenshot, as well as the new Building multi location template to help with that.

Thanks 😊🙏 User:Ikip

No worries, keep up the good work! —Faalagorn/ 22:03, 3 October 2023 (BST)

Move to user space?

Maybe this editor should have this moved to user space? Renmar Arnejo Ikip (talk) 23:20, 3 October 2023 (BST)

Thanks! I moved the page and asked the user about the reason for writing it up. —Faalagorn/ 18:32, 5 October 2023 (BST)
thanks your the best Ikip (talk) 18:38, 5 October 2023 (BST)

Gas station

Thanks for all your work! glad you moved the article to gas station, the american term. You are tireless and your work is appreciated! Ikip (talk) 20:27, 10 October 2023 (BST)

No worries; I generally did answer everything on the Talk:Gas station, but I was thinking about the naming before, while filling is not British specifically, I believe the gas one is more fitting indeed. :) Gotta make new pages for Gas 2 Go, Fossoil and other stations and rename the rest then! —Faalagorn/ 20:29, 10 October 2023 (BST)
I changed the term in the navbox business, but all the hundreds of businesses from navbox business are showing up in the "what links here" in "filling station". As soon as this changes, I will change the page references from filling station to gas station.
nevermind, it has updated, there are now only 40 pages that link to filling station. Ikip (talk) 20:46, 10 October 2023 (BST)
thanks for all the cleanup such as your really great for this project ♥ 👌 Ikip (talk) 15:14, 13 October 2023 (BST)

Duke as a survivor

I added where the red linked survivors can be found, on Survivor, but I couldnt find Duke. Ikip (talk) 21:04, 10 October 2023 (BST)

It's a camera guy from TURBO and Triple-N. He can be spawned as a zombie in debug mode and I believe he can be encountered in-game naturally as well, similar to other named NPCs. —Faalagorn/ 21:39, 10 October 2023 (BST)



I dont know exactly where the sign is found so I added it to this page


Ikip (talk) 18:59, 12 October 2023 (BST)

First baptist church sighting in Muldraugh?


Ikip (talk) 02:22, 16 October 2023 (BST)

found it, see First Baptist Chapel. :) Ikip (talk) 02:36, 16 October 2023 (BST)

Favor to ask about map area in the west - is it in the current build?

Talk:Map If you have the current build, can you travel to the area in the west? Ikip (talk) 00:31, 20 October 2023 (BST)

Yes, everything that is on the official map is accessible, including this location: however these new locations have no cars, no foraging zones and lack features. They also don't have any official name as far as I'm aware, though some locations were theorized based on the real-world equivalents. —Faalagorn/ 18:26, 20 October 2023 (BST)
wow! interesting, i didnt know about that. Thanks. Ikip (talk) 21:11, 20 October 2023 (BST)

Thanks a lot! it is now on the wiki Dogs A-Flamin'! you are awesome. So much work you do on this wiki. Ikip (talk) 21:43, 28 October 2023 (BST)

Any important news?

Hi, faalagorn, I'm planning to return translating the pt-br wiki, did I missed anything important during my off time? Sarah52 (talk) 20:40, 2 November 2023 (UTC)

Well, there will be a monthly summary this Sunday, so you may wait for that, though nothing major as far as translating goes yet. There are also two new sidebar strings to translate: MediaWiki:Affiliates and MediaWiki:Tooltip-n-affiliates. :) —Faalagorn/ 20:47, 2 November 2023 (UTC)
Just remembered that my q,a and r of my keyboard are not working properly... I already bought it, so now I just have to wait it to arrive. Probably around day 16 i'm back! Thanks :) Sarah52 (talk) 01:03, 3 November 2023 (UTC)

thanks your awesome

Tired of compromising

I dont want an edit war. I created over half of all of those businesses listed. Hundreds of hours over the eleven months. My first edit was in December 2022. Ikip (talk) 23:30, 15 November 2023 (UTC)

March Ridge Dormitory

I think this is the Knox Military Apartments. Ikip (talk) 00:35, 16 November 2023 (UTC)

Ha, indeed might be it. Thanks! Gonna update the links then. —Faalagorn/ 00:55, 16 November 2023 (UTC)

Questions for other editors to explore

These should be able to check within the game files or debug mode.

How do i check in game, I have seen comments on youtube describing what is supposed to be in a location. I reversed engineered Dead Rising, modded the games. I had a great wiki, which i gave to fandom, owned by wikipedia. Ikip (talk) 02:06, 16 November 2023 (UTC)

FANDOM and Wikipedia are separate, though the owner of FANDOM originally created Wikipedia. Anyway, digressing, for debug mode, the article should explain most of the stuff, you can enable some stuff to help with asserting drop location. All files are in .txt format in and media/lua/server/Items/Distributions.lua and media/lua/server/Items/ProceduralDistributions.lua though there's no clear guide on how to parse them, but you can figure your way out or ask around on Discord. —Faalagorn/ 02:14, 16 November 2023 (UTC)

Discord link

why not change the discord link on the wiki to this: Which goes directly to this channel? Ikip (talk) 23:59, 19 November 2023 (UTC)

The link is to the general Wiki The Indie Stone server: You have to accept the rules and verification procedures before you start chatting anyway, so linking to a specific channel it's best to be reserved to people who already have access. —Faalagorn/ 00:25, 20 November 2023 (UTC)

Admin barnstar

Feel free to change this barnstar to one which is project zomboid appropriate, See Category:Barnstars for the original barnstar, which you could use as the background. Thanks! Ikip (talk) 23:34, 20 November 2023 (UTC)
Thank you! on other wiki's w: works, but not on this 1 :'( Ikip (talk) 05:49, 26 November 2023 (UTC)
ditto: Ikip (talk) 05:54, 26 November 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, the interwiki links are different on each wiki. We use [[Wikipedia:]] for Wikipedia and [[mw:]] for MediaWiki. There's also [[zomboidweb:]] for links. —Faalagorn/ 20:42, 26 November 2023 (UTC)

New template

Template:Rotate text

Ikip (talk) 06:56, 26 November 2023 (UTC)

There are quite some new templates, I'd have to clean some up to the PZwiki standards, as they are imported straight from Wikipedia, though no ETA as I'm barely catching up with recent changes nowadays :P Not sure why you link this one in particular? Is it to be used for something specific? —Faalagorn/ 20:44, 26 November 2023 (UTC)

Coding corrections

Some of your corrections dont change what the end user sees. For example template:header to template:Header

Often I feel sorry for you correcting these issues the end user never sees, so I correct them first.

Each to their own. *shrug* *smiley face* Ikip (talk) 18:42, 5 December 2023 (UTC)

We had discussion about it with another editor (forgot who was it). On PCGW they correct it when other changes are made with AWB, but we came to the conclusion that here with the small wiki we are, it doesn't hurt correcting them. I often look at the page from the code side while at it ;). The main benefit I guess is we'll have uniform layout when folks copy things over (which happens a lot naturally, obviously), sometimes when I already am on an editing window when patrolling changes and I push them, but generally something a bot could do eventually, and yeah, it's of low importance. In case you wonder, the ones we currently follow are documented in the style guide here Help:Style guide. —Faalagorn/ 18:52, 5 December 2023 (UTC)
ok, guess you a glutton for punishment, if you enjoy making changes like this [2] *shrug* *smiley face* just feel bad for you sometimes. But I guess in the process of flogging yourself, you pick up on little errors like you did the logging company. Ikip (talk) 05:37, 6 December 2023 (UTC)
I am patrolling all the recent changes, I announced that back in June 2023, so from that it's just clicking edit and all these double spaces, and mistakes (except maybe categories) are highlighted by LanguageTool anyway, so from that on it's not that many extr awork, plus it sometimes makes me find some odd errors/mistakes which I mentioned yesterday on Discord for example, sometimes it's actually quite relaxing compare to actually thinking through everything, though I have to admit, it did take me more time than I planned to. :P —Faalagorn/ 12:33, 6 December 2023 (UTC)

Cemetery: changed to more general category

Cemetery. As discussed in chat in ~November 2023 with @faal and @thinkdoc I liked @faal Hit Vids statement. Ikip (talk) 05:03, 13 December 2023 (UTC)

Nice! I'll add it to one of the links in the main page; hopefully I will find enough time will (and clear mind, to not mess things up) and upload new layouts from Project Zomboid Wiki/sandbox and PZwiki:Community portal/sandbox from Vibrance! —Faalagorn/ 12:13, 13 December 2023 (UTC)
ok nice job! Ikip (talk) 09:14, 14 December 2023 (UTC)

thanks for fixing general links and dealing with captcha Ikip (talk) 09:14, 14 December 2023 (UTC)

Yeah, I had them on my watchlist backlog. I was undecided whether to keep which links (especially as links from 3rd party websites are often inaccurate, especially over time when new versions are released, or plainly die, but in this case I guess it doesn't hurt, so I kept them. —Faalagorn/ 09:52, 14 December 2023 (UTC)

Template:Translation problem

Hi, I encountered some problems when using, it is advised to use it, but adding new entries increases preprocessor visited node count exponentially even exceeding it sometimes, so some big pages can't load correctly, like Is it a bug or it works as intended? Thanks.

Hey! Unfortunately yeah, it's a known bug, Vaileasys tried to circumvent it by adding Template:Subpage, but it might not be enough for large translation database. We might take a deeper look at it during Christmas break, but no promises! —Faalagorn/ 00:32, 22 December 2023 (UTC)

thanks for your edits

thanks :) Ikip (talk) 20:08, 15 January 2024 (UTC)


I know you don't hold barnstars in very high regard, and your comments were troubling dismissive today, but you did stop a potential edit war on Jan 14 - Jan 15 2023, so thanks a lot for going the extra mile. Your always trying to compromised and you have never threatened. For what it is worth to you:

Well, I'd love to have them streamlined, we don't need that many as Wikipedia for sure, ideally they'd use something that's more related to our wiki instead —Faalagorn/ 21:44, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

removed {clear}} < -- remove when article is longer -->

There are over 300 pages with the clear tag although some are locations, many of them clothes that you added also.

do the clothes ones need to be removed also? Ikip (talk) 21:24, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

Yes, the clear is no longer needed now that it's automatically added by the core navbox template, I did mention it before, they are safe to remove now :). Not much priority though. —Faalagorn/ 21:33, 24 January 2024 (UTC)

False Removal of how charcoal can be made?

Hey, I noticed that the Charcoal page didn't say that it was not obtainable, so I added that in.
(I'm *slightly* new to editing here) I then looked at the history and found that you removed that part and considering you seem to have done quite some help here, I wonder why that is?
I might have missed sth, if so, please tell me!

Actually, it seems that it was User:Calvy that removed it in – are you sure it can be obtained that way without mods? Metal drum is not something you get in a regular gameplay, it can only be spawned in the debug mode. —Faalagorn/ 22:05, 21 February 2024 (UTC)
The first few pages the bot did replaced the whole distribution section with the table. Feel free to verify and put it back. Calvy (talk) 22:50, 21 February 2024 (UTC)
