DayZ Wiki

Do you have permission to copy IGNs article verbatim like that? Cheers, Planky (Talk) 00:22, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

As long as its quoted and sourced I see no issues... if we took it out of context or claimed ownership that would be another story. Maybe I'm wrong? - Smokie (talk) 04:04, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
If it were select parts it could be argued as fair use, but the whole article they might not like. Up to you :) - Planky (talk) 04:46, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough. Removed until it can be presented better. - Smokie (talk) 05:11, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
I'll write something up and reference it as a source - Planky (talk) 05:16, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
Awesome, looking forward to it :) - Smokie (talk) 05:35, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
Did you guys really have to murderer my page? :( - Andrewjn (talk) 21:17, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
I wouldn't call that murderering. The page was edited to turn it from an IGN article text dump to a proper wiki article, with information presented in an organized, easy to read fashion, rather than just mirroring a lengthy narrative about a conversation with Rocket. - Christopher (talk) 22:56, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
"MURDER"? You took 30 seconds to copy and paste an article... Let's not start throwing around words like "murder." Awesome work Planky! Page looks awesome! - Smokie (talk) 00:24, 29 August 2012 (UTC)


Does this have anything to do with WarZ? Or are they completely different? - EZAC99 (talk) 03:01, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

WarZ is another game by another company. The wiki for WarZ is here: - Planky (talk) 05:29, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
What he said. The only thing they share is their game genre. - Smokie (talk) 06:29, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Standalone different from Arma 2 dayz mod?[]

Do you have to buy the standalone game if you already have the arma 2 mod DayZ?

Yes - Planky (talk) 06:03, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Unregistered Edits[]

There's been a lot of unregistered users messing around with the standalone release date for a few months now. Should it make sense to protect the page and not have to deal with that stuff again, or at least mark it as patrolled? (PlanetZ (talk) 00:49, 31 December 2012 (UTC))

Agreed. I've protected the page from unregistered and new users, should see it stopped for now. Planky (talk) 08:46, 31 December 2012 (UTC))
Same. I will be protecting page from unregistered and new users. As he said it should stop now.

Cars and Weapons[]

As a suggestion for the standalone, certaon guns should be able to be shot from civilian vechiles. By this meaning all passangers while in the car should be able to shoot by opening the window, yet be in danger of being shot. The driver while holding alt should be able to shoot out of his window but only with handgun. Also zombies shoul be able to climb up onto the car or be able to clib in and kill passangers.

General WTF[]

Why do you allow for so much unverified information on this wiki? For instance, "The engine is being heavily modified, including code from Arma III." & "Dayz standalone will utilize a Minecraft-like sales model; this will allow players to pay a much lower price for early access to the alpha/beta releases while helping to fund development toward the final product." These are both unsubstantiated, unverified, and most likely false claims. Alpha has already passed and we are currently in closed beta right now and obviously you can't buy the game right now...DayZ=/=WarZ

- I don"t know why you think the Minecraft Sales model is unconfirmed. Rocket has mentioned it in many interviews. Here is one interview I watched again last night where he mentions it at the end (watch the second interview): I'm also not sure why you would use the general "we" except to try and deceive us into believing you work for publisher Bohemia or Rocket's team. You obviously do not since it is well known that DayZ Standalone is in pre-alpha (which Rocket said himself at E3 and which was shown at E3) and the Alpha release is emminent. I never post on Wiki's but seriously something needed to be said, we're here to help each other, inflammation is not welcome. -Underachieving

Why can i not use a axe or punch in Dayz SA[]

I cannot use a axe or punch why and how do i fix it i use a xbox controller Suggestion: make it so the bag you can make whit sticks can be deconstructed to make splints and make a guilly cover for a rifel from a sack or make a Balaclava from a sack or a radar cap

Please don't post you questions here. Go to reddit or forums. You cann't use the axe because you haven't raised it. Playing with xbox controller is your fault. We can do nothing about that. Your suggestion is useless to post here because devs don't read wiki discussion pages for new 'ideas'. Again please use reddit or forums for this. You can find a link to the official forums on the main page. Here is the dayz subreddit. Thanks! --RocknRolla7 (talk) 09:54, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
