Buttonville is a suburb of Malton, located in the south of the city. A few residents held the brief opinion that this suburb should be referred to as "Cheeseville" based on a poll on one group's public forum; efforts to replace the suburb name in this article were considered vandalism under this wiki's NPOV rules and removed. It continues to be known as "Butt-ville" by several dirty-minded residents, but no effort to "correct" this article has emerged. It is occasionally abbreviated to "The Button" or "The Butt" (the source of many jokes by degenerate locals) and can be referred to as "Bagganb!rrh" in Zamgrh by players with Death Rattle. The suburb currently has no other common aliases.

Buttonville, the land of Wine!
Before the outbreak, Buttonville was a highly populated community of Rich suburbanites. In those days, Buttonville had been well know as the Capitol of the Wine Industry (In selling and storing of the large quantities, that is. No Wineries themselves cared to become local, instead making a hefty profit on import from their respective Suburbs, or Countries). It may have been that tradition and like-minded individuals had started this trend, therefore making it "high-class" to be an authority and drinker of fine wine.
For whatever reason, because of some social movement of living a High-Class life, the Suburb prospered under wonderful economic conditions. Ron Burgundy was often cited as being a massive inspiration to the people of the Suburb. Amongst the local Bars and the like was the profoundness of displaying Ron Burgundy approved plaques for their Wines, a massive pride to any Bar, Pub, or Club in any Suburb.
The people had been terrifically involved in Politics.
ButtonvilleButtonville Building Information Center contains status reports and updates on key buildings in the suburb.
Survivor groups advise visitors not to sleep in Buttonville's resource buildings. These buildings are generally high-profile targets for zombies, and due to the UBP-compliant Barricade Plan the local groups uphold, tend to be less-heavily barricaded; survivors sleeping inside make these tempting targets into all-you-can-eat buffets as well.
Zombie groups, on the other hand, advise visiting zombies that survivors rarely take their own advice, and that most VSB buildings do turn out to be buffets after all.
Besides Buckley Mall, Buttonville has:
- 4 NT Buildings (the Fort Building [47, 90], the Brazey Building [48, 91], the Tebbett Building [48, 96], and the Pryor Building [41, 98])
- 2 Fire Stations (Whittem Place Fire Station [41, 97] and Garlick Square Fire Station [48, 98])
- 1 Police Station (Ranson Boulevard Police Dept [47, 92])
- 1 Hospital (St Soter's Hospital [40, 91])
In addition St Soter's Hospital in NW Buttonville, two hospitals lie just on the border: St Agatho's Hospital @ [42, 89] near NW corner in Kinch Heights and Julie General Hospital @ [50, 97] near SE corner in Wyke Hills. Near the NE corner in West Grayside is Piran General Hospital @ [50, 88].
There are three operational revivification locations in Buttonville:
- a cemetery [44, 93] (south of St Columbanus's Church)
- wasteland [47, 95] (west of Hutchin Bank)
- a cemetery [40,98] (south of St Aidan's Church)
Survivor groups in this neighborhood adhere to the policy of No Random Revives (not affiliated with the Randoms); which usually requires one to register one's in-game profile ID on a Revivification Request Tool to prevent reviving PKers. Revive policies in the suburb include (but may not be limited to):
- The Randoms request that revive-seekers use their revive request forum. Most other groups in the area monitor this revive queue.
- The Department of Emergency Management prefer that revive-seekers use the DEM Revive Request Tool. (Some groups in the area may monitor this queue.)
- PKers request that Revive Technicians perform their duties without bias or moral judgment.
- Zombies request that revive-seekers greet each other, as well as any harmanz who happen to wander into range, with a friendly bite, then sing and dance for a bit (because everybody likes a show while they stand in a queue).
Historical: The St Aidan's Church [40, 97] was an early revivification clinic starting in November 2005. It was closed in October 2006 to simplify the revive points given there is a Sacred Ground cemetery one south.

Buttonville seems to have returned to pre-outbreak conditions. Most of the suburb is powered, very few (if any) zombies are being reported and a sizeable amount of buildings have a generator and a radio installed. Buckley Mall is being held by local, unaffiliated survivors and The Randoms seem to rejoy in decorating the reclaimed houses with a veritable plethora of artwork. The Mechel Museum no longer maintains barricades and welcomes all artloving visitors. Due to this policy, it is the only red building in the entire suburb. Neighbouring suburbs like Williamsville and Kinch Heights apparently are experiencing a similar evolution. PB&J 08:44, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
The majority of the suburb is safe. Buckley Mall is currently held by Woodbury and surrounding buildings should be considered not safe for survivors. --K 14:41, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Generally, Buttonville is the Suburb of peace & reiki. Do some Yoga, turn off your radio to those annoying noobs, sit back and relax! There is much to do my friends! Much wine to drink, much fun to be had, much drunken nights of RP to be experienced. Visit the Clubs, embrace the culture!
•Visit the Western Half of Buckley Mall, stock up on all your Survivor needs and kick back.
•Kill some Zombies! They get back up anyways, so why not get some XP for harassment? I'm sure they love dying every time they stand up.
•Kill some Humans! We appreciate all the idiots learn from their mistakes early by dying in the streets.
•Attend diligently to your Malton Communication studies. Learn some Zamgrh.
•Be a dick and spam the radio stations! And then die!
