Started a place for the most recent newspapers and gave the one I've seen so far, a few other minor changes (date, and section headings) hope no one minded. --Leo Howard 23:23, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Reorganized. Divided the stories into sections depending on the month they were written. They are for the most part listed alphabetically. I have made an exception for the "early last year" article and placed it at the top of the Last year articles. It currently appears as though the second article regarding the overcrowding cemeteries did not make the transition. --Lint 03:54, 26 March 2006 (BST)

Further reorganized, dividing the current newspaper stories into advice, propaganda, and junk ("background information"). Perhaps propaganda should be under junk as well? - BzAli 11:10, 20 January 2007 (UTC)


We have a lot of links off of this page that lead to pages with little or no content (e.g. bird flu). Why not just make these links to Wikipedia, and delete the pages? --RCG Tiburon 12:47, 17 April 2006 (BST)

I believe those articles are found acceptable because if someone were to search one of the main terms they found in a newspaper in the game they'd get a sensible result. But, I can accept a merge and redirect of the articles listed in possible causes for the situation category to this article. Just don't touch the NecroTech article, that one seems fine as it is. --Lint 19:03, 17 April 2006 (BST)
So then I'll make those redirects, and link the relevant links here to Wikipedia. --RCG Tiburon 00:17, 18 April 2006 (BST)
I'll also create an article called Possible Causes for the Situation, to replace the category. I'll request that that be linked to the main page. --RCG Tiburon 00:22, 18 April 2006 (BST)

Current Pages

I found one about Free Running, but I forgot to note it down. Anyone seen one? Dance Emot.gifTheDavibob LLLDance Emot.gif 11:49, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Found it. Where should it go?: "It's a copy of the local paper from May 2005. There's an interview with a local 'parkour' group, with some photos of them crossing Malton's rooftops." Dance Emot.gifTheDavibob LLLDance Emot.gif 11:53, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
It goes in the background story section of the current newspaper place. --Leo Howard 21:14, 20 January 2007 (UTC)


Made a subheader because kinda has to do with the above. Monroeville has new newspapers, I'll post what I have on the talk page, add it once there's more information(as I only have the one story so far):

  • It's a copy of a local newspaper from a few weeks ago. There's a story about the redevelopment of Monroeville Mall. x2
  • It's a copy of a local newspaper from a few weeks ago. The front page story is about local farming subsidies. x4
  • It's a copy of a local newspaper from a few weeks ago. There's an interview with the director of Parkdale Hospital, in Newtown. x2

Feel free to add to that list.--Karekmaps?! 01:27, 2 March 2008 (UTC)


No one reads the 'papes anymore, huh? </3 --Highlandcow 21:18, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Crazy Idea, But...

...Who's up for a project with the intent of turning these summaries about the articles into an actual newspaper article? Think of it like that old project that provided some of the buildings in Urban Dead with some backstory or whatever. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 21:53, 29 August 2011 (BST)

Maybe a new Lexicon with rules that entries must include (or be an extension of) the news articles. I'd be for it I think (I think). ~Vsig.png 22:11, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
