Alphabetizing

Hola - is "the" not included in the ordering as the group specifically use this to refer to themselves? Like, "The Flowers of Decay", not just "Flowers of Decay". --Ash  |  T  |  яя  | 11:35, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

Yep! As far as I know, there's no alphabetization standard in which articles ("The", "A" or "An") count as part of a name or title for alphabetization purposes. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 15:43, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
Yep, this is why in a lot of alphabetizing you’ll even see them make it more obvious by moving the “The” to the end, like “Flowers of Decay, The”. Aichon 00:32, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
Would it be a good idea then to move "the" and other articles to the end (of the name) in the glossary? As of right now it looks chaotic and non-alphabetical to the average viewer. Dummy991 (talk) 22:34, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
"The" at the end would probably look awkward. I'll just remove the "the" entirely. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 01:44, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
Honestly, I knew this and just wanted to start up some activity. I leave in a week and will be out of action for a year, however, and can't commit to it. Maybe next year. --Ash  |  T  |  яя  | 10:44, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Building Danger Reports : Methods

Hey, sorry to keep bugging you, but I'd like to ask you a question concerning updating danger reports. As you know, external military reports often have pseudo building reports in them, and would it be valid to update the building report based off these reports alone? In which case, what would be the corresponding danger levels for the various reports? I was thinking "safe" for any survivor positive reports and "ruined" for any survivor negative reports. Well, maybe some of the survivor negative reports would be "in zombie hands" because I think there might be a report that goes along the lines of well... "in zombie hands". Let me know because I want to help contribute to keeping major building reports as recent as possible, without sacrificing accuracy too much or having a lot of alts. Thanks for your time.

Since it's usually an NT or a mall that appears in those reports, I know Bob updates those particular building statuses based on the EMR. So using the EMRs to update any building listed in them is totally fine! I am sure Bob will agree, and probably give you more of an idea as to how he uses the EMR to update the buildings. I just thought I'd jump in and let you know that is was ok :) stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 02:24, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
Totally! I actually cover this in the instructions I wrote on updating DangerReports for the MDU — see item 7 here. I generally use the EMRs to update buildings unless there's been an on-site update that's less than a week or so old. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 18:28, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
