What to do about Patches[edit source]
- Yeah. I've seen several other wikis do this. It ends up helping a lot once a lot of patches get made. The page starts getting huge and taking a long time to load if they're all left in a single one. A simple forward and backward arrow system works nicely to travel between patches. A main page like this can serve simply to list patches and their dates (and possibly names if the patch is a named patch) with links. -LastTalon (talk) • (contribs) 22:17, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Link from main page[edit source]
A good place to link to the patch notes would probably be the main page, probably with a little section that shows the most recent patch as well as the date the patch happened on. -LastTalon (talk) • (contribs) 22:35, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Patches exclusive for XBox / PS4[edit source]
What do we do about the patches exclusive to XBox / PS4 or patches that only affect 2 out of 3 platform? Do they need their own section?
Patch note data[edit source]
- I don't see an administrative reason to say no, but do you have a way to implement that?

Patch Note Improvement Project[edit source]
We could really use a standard template to format update info for Patch Notes as well as each individual hero/map page.
I'll be looking into this and would appreciate any community input.
https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Template:History - Shows formatted history on individual pages
https://dota2.gamepedia.com/Template:Updates - Update box for main page.
https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Template:History - Simple to use and full featured update entry
- I've made some templates to help us keep patch notes standardized looking.
