:Hello! We'd worked with the team at Hinterlands Games back in 2013 while the game was still a Kickstarter. You can see the announcement they made about the wiki [https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hinterlandgames/the-long-dark-a-first-person-post-disaster-surviva/posts/623984 here]. Seems like we'll need to touch base with them though! [[User:CrsBenjamin|CrsBenjamin]] ([[User talk:CrsBenjamin|talk]]) 17:33, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Wiki's "official" status

This wiki advertises itself as "Official" in its pagetitles ([1], [2], and [3]), but then says in its about and disclaimer pages that "[The Wiki] is owned and hosted by Curse.com, and has no affiliation with Hinterland Studio Inc." Hinterland has also said that they have no official wiki and the current wikis "...[receive] no contributions from anyone associated with the studio." (Sources: Steam discussion - The Long Dark - Best Wiki? - #19, [ditto] #24)

As such, the term "Official" should be removed as it only serves to confuse and mislead readers. --LegendAU (talk) 02:15, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
