Forums: Index > HLification?

I'm new here even though I'm an old HL fan, simply because I didn't know this Wiki existed. But to come to the point, is there a policy here like the Star Wars Wiki's Wookieefication, which basically means changing stuff like

"A Bullsquid is a fictional animal in the Half-Life series of computer games which lives in the fictional world of Xen"


"A bullsquid is an animal which lives in the border-world Xen"

If there is, or if there should be, I would like to start effecting this change.

To tell the truth, I don't like an out-of-universe perspective in a Wiki which is based on the universe itself. In the current state, it's like a collection of articles from Wikipedia which I don't think it should be.

I do indeed prefer to read articles as though they are real. From an in-universe perspective. Please do add that to the Manual of Style. Good idea.

Will do. Oh and should all articles be written in the past tense (another thing at the Star Wars Wiki). Arnavion 16:15, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
I have already edited some articles, the list is on my userpage. I am waiting for your feedback.
Hope you had a nice trip!

I think it would probably sound better if the articles were written in past tense. Although, i think most articles are already in past tense, so there shouldn't be to much to do for that.
