In the "Did you know..." section the second entry is a listing about the venus symbol being in the Meet the Pyro video. The link to the Wikipedia page goes to a page on women. This link should be corrected to go directly to the Wikipedia page on the venus symbol:

the word "update' in class hat/misc tables

Example - Manniversary Update. Update is replaced with writing in an Asian language. Not even sure which one it is, or how to fix it, though I will look. Appears to happen with all classes. Cranberry Jerk 18:38, 4 July 2012 (PDT)

This talk page is for the Main Page only. Anyway, if you are looking for a way to translate/fix translations of these texts, you should see Template:Dictionary/common strings#major update titles.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 18:42, 4 July 2012 (PDT)
Fixed this. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 18:45, 4 July 2012 (PDT)

Yeah, sorry, I didn't know the best place for it. Better on each class page? Thanks for fix Mouskateer Cranberry Jerk 20:54, 5 July 2012 (PDT)

Adding Archimedes to Trending topics or MvM Feed

This little guy was added during MvM update, but he isn't noticed on main page as many new items are. Archimedes Shumatsu 09:23, 16 August 2012 (PDT)

Adding Robot Responses and Taunts

I think we need to add robot responses and taunts because we would love to hear the robot versions of voice lines and the taunts are technically new. The preceding unsigned comment was added by GamerGuy09 (talk) • (contribs) 22:01, 1 September 2012

All voice responses have a filter applied on them in-game to sound robotic-like, which means doing this for all of them wouldn't be helpful. As for the robot taunts... that's not a bad idea. Still, this page is for discussing the Main Page only, and you should probably try the Talk:Taunts or the Team Fortress Wiki:Discussion page for this instead.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 10:33, 3 September 2012 (PDT)
nah, i don't think we need to put all the robot responses and taunts, because they're only modified voice of normal classes, so why put them?--MarcoDoctorwho 13:04, 18 March 2013 (PDT)

i think we need robot's new taunts because more funny =) ~Yuj09126~ (talk) 08:19, 22 June 2014 (PDT)

This discussion is pretty old, he is talking about robot taunts. I'm not sure if the new taunts from Love and War update are also available for robots.

Random Page Function should be filtered by language

Who agrees with me? It's pretty annoying to usually be linked to a page in a foreign language. ToSTONEiGO 19:58, 5 September 2012 (PDT)

This has been discussed many, many times before, but it's unfortunately out of our hands - I believe one of the mods has written the code that would filter it by language, but it's up to the people at Valve to implement it. » Cooper Kid (blether) • (contreebs) 02:20, 6 September 2012 (PDT)

New Update

Hey guys theres a new update up for TF2 but Valve hasn't said anything about it. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Engineer's Sentry (talk) • (contribs) 22:42, 21 September 2012

Trending Topics

Mann vs. Machine can probably be removed from the topics. It's been more than a month since the update.  – Tabs 01:50, 24 September 2012 (PDT)

No, it hasn't even been a whole month yet. And it's still the first biggest update that has happened to TF2 since the Pyromania update. Weirdduder10

Class Icons

What's up with the Scout and Engineer icon? I'm pretty sure that's not supposed to be there. --TzuZen 23:32, 22 October 2012 (PDT)

Can you take a picture? I don't see those two icons anywhere on the page. Darkid (talk|contribs) 07:23, 23 October 2012 (PDT)
Seems like it was edited out. But now the Spy's face on the page is different too .. wonder if these are linked. --TzuZen 19:59, 23 October 2012 (PDT)
The main page is non-editable; any change would show up as being done by an admin. The current change on the TF2 website ( is per Valve, not per us. Darkid (talk|contribs) 20:02, 23 October 2012 (PDT)

TF2 Halloween 2012

So most people know about that Spy Skull easter egg on the TF2 Main Page. Someone's eventually going to have to make a Halloween 2012 update page, but I just wanted to know how to create a page.--Aronius Two 21:32, 23 October 2012 (PDT)Aronius_Two

Please add topic to the bottom of the page in the future. Please also add general discussion questions to Team Fortress Wiki:Discussion. This page has already been created, Halloween 2012. Darkid (talk|contribs) 04:25, 24 October 2012 (PDT)


If you go on,and click the spy's head,you'll find a secret page,of a newspaper Let's start what i found (with my friend)

1.At the corner,there is a scout's leg...what is in his hand???
2. and what is next to it? own/eat for/enemies! what is that???
3.Phone numbers....spoilers or no sense?
5. There are egyptian like hieroglyphs... maybe we'll have to travel in time,and fight (scout?)mummies?

Smissmas 2012

So the smissmas is coming, and VALVe released an article about it (The update page). The page tells about the new MvM map and a boss robot, Mecha-Engineer. It also contains 3 new weapons ("Rescue ranger" for engi, "The loose cannon" for demo and "The vaccinator" for medic) and a postcard with "Season greetings" written on the upper left corner. On the postcard there are all nine classes with a reindeer antlers, except pyro, scout and sniper. The Spy and the Demoman have a christmas ornament badge (forgot the name of the ornament), the Spy is also wearing shoulderpads much like the Fancy dress uniform, The hat that scout is wearing, is a lot like "Ye olde baker boy", but with earmuffs. Both the sniper's and pyro's hats look like ski masks. Balloonicorn has a new reindeer-like skin. The classes are all holding the new festive weapons, from left to right: Axtinguisher(pyro), ???(demo, the gun is not visible), Ubersaw(medic), Frontier justice(engineer), Huntsman(sniper), Ambassador(spy), Sandwich(? heavy is holding a triangular package, the same shape that sandwich has), Holy mackerel(scout) and Buff banner(soldier).

Trivia statement incorrect.

In the trivia section it said that, a Pyro flamethrower named Wrath of Wan Hu would have been part of the Triad Pack, but was replaced by the Huo Long Heater It has been stated by the author of this weapon that it was not a replacement and simply that square enix was monitoring there weapons to which they added, and decided not to add the weapon.--hj 06:03, 4 January 2013 (PST)

Hi there, I'm ManiacJack. If you didn't read the title, I'm new to this wiki. I have one thing to ask, if I need help with anything wiki related, who should I talk to? --ManiacJack 19:54, 31 January 2013 (PST)

There's an error on the main page this is displaying in the action figure post. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Davo (talk) • (contribs) 15:50, 5 February 2013

To clarify, the post has bad grammar. The main page says "TF2 Action Figure are out now" when it should be Figures. The appropriate template to change is {{Current Events}}. Darkid (talk|contribs) 07:54, 5 February 2013 (PST)
Yeah, bad grammar, someone fix it--MarcoDoctorwho 07:56, 5 February 2013 (PST)

Unofficial TF2 project page

Hello, I would like to know if I can add a wiki page about something that isn't developed by valve but by the community, in the TF2 world of course. The project is the Electric Boogaloo, where the community make robot version of the hats and miscs. Thanks, ViST3 21:40, 24 February 2013 (PST)

While we have no official guidelines on notable projects, we do tend to only create articles for projects that have been mentioned on the official blog. A link to the project page would be handy in making your case though. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 05:37, 25 February 2013 (PST)
Sure, this is the project page: Actually, there's just a video and some guidelines, but in the Facepunch forum there's a thread about this project and it is plenty of good quality item previews. I know the html code and the wiki code (quite similar) so i think something good will come out. I still have to contact one of the project moderators though. ViST3 10:40, 25 February 2013 (PST)

L4D 4 Icons

Why are L4D 4 icons popping up all over the main page? Anyone else seeing this? It appears that they're being used in place of the default bullet points. Jaco909 10:26, 17 March 2013 (PDT)

Change Forums to Community Hub

...Or Discussion. Valve seems to have migrated everything to their new Community Hub system, and we should follow suit if we are an official resource. I still regularly use the Forums, perhaps the links should be revamped to include both, but it makes sense to me to switch the priority. -KazooieBanjo (talk) 10:13, 2 October 2013 (PDT)

Characters in the comics

I was thinking, should we have a section on the playable characters page to explain their roles in the official comics so far and which comics they appear in? It makes sense to me. Or, have a separate page for the characters as they appear in the comics, since that's what a lot of superhero wikis and wikis dealing with multiple universes or canons tend to do. --PyroGothNerd (talk) 10:52, 23 December 2013 (PST)

I don't know, the comic pages themselves tend to explain what's going on--and it's not like there's a huge amount of continuity within the comics, or that this continuity is so horridly broken by the game. Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 10:59, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Well, not previously, but now they have like TF comics #1 and TF comics #2 so it seems like they're starting to explore having a more continuous story. (Although it probably started with Blood Brothers) --PyroGothNerd (talk) 11:05, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Ok, so recently there is a bit of a story. What, beyond what is listed in the comics, needs telling? Keep in mind that the majority of players do not focus on these comics; rather on the game Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 11:23, 23 December 2013 (PST)
Also, since this is general discussion, it should be taking place Here. Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 11:24, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Oh...okay. Sorry, I'm new here :) --PyroGothNerd (talk) 11:52, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Favorite character poll?

Is it possible to create a poll on the home page this wiki? Because I'm curious to see which fighting class/character is the most popular (or at least among people who visit this wiki). --PyroGothNerd (talk) 11:37, 25 December 2013 (PST)

Such a poll does not belong on the wiki. It's opinion based which is better off being on the Steam forums rather than here. Even though there were probably tons made, it's pointless for the wiki. Ashes (talk) 15:59, 25 December 2013 (PST)

Clear the page

I think we should delete all the posts here and clean it up. Or at least the things not havin gto do with the main page.. it's just useless spam. ErnieTheGreatest (talk) 17:11, 28 January 2014 (PST)

The point of a talk page is to discuss and to archive them as well. This discussion serves as that archive as well. So no. Clearing it would be useless. Ashes (talk) 18:20, 28 January 2014 (PST)
On the other hand, archiving it would be very useful. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 18:45, 28 January 2014 (PST)

TF2 Beta link

Being the TF2 beta is completely defunct these days I think we should replace the link with something else. Having historical articles on it makes sense, it being important enough to have on our frontpage doesn't in my opinion. My suggestion would be a Major Updates link. Theharribokid (talk) 18:09, 19 June 2014 (PDT)

There is no "All class cosmetics" page?

I was looking at the cosmetic items of the classes and noticed the List of All class cosmetics page is completely empty. I thought that maybe the page linked on the Cosmetic items page was not correct and there was a correct page elsewhere but when I googled this, it was the only page that appeared other than the obviously outdated tf2wiki's page (found here). I'm not sure if we have never had an all class cosmetic page or if it was deleted when it was last modified over a year ago, but we shouldn't ignore the hats that can be worn by every class considering we are the wiki of the one and only hat simulator for crying out loud...

Just so you know I am completely new to the wiki and wiki editing for that matter but I might try creating/fixing the page myself if no else is up to it. I have been a fan of you guys' hard work for years and I'm surprised I haven't joined the wiki sooner. Midlight (talk) 10:04, 21 July 2014 (PDT)

Featured Article so old

Looking at the front page still, and the Featured Article has been the Engineer Update for a while now, and I think we should change it. I don't really know to, but it could use a refresh every three or four weeks. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fuzzeh! (talk) • (contribs)

Out-dated main-pages

The page has a patches section instead of weapons in the Index. Also, Trading is in the wrong spot.

The page has an out-dated hats section in the index, and has an out-dated game modes picture

Also, please create a new topic with the title == NAME OF THE TOPIC == instead of using four ---- to separate it. User SackZement signature.gifSackZement <Talk> 05:52, 16 August 2014 (PDT)

Weapon Modeling Tutorial

dont we need a page that tells players how they can make weapons, hats or cosmetics Villager3056 (talk) 03:09, 23 August 2014 (PDT)

This is not only limited to TF2 and thus better covered by the Source Developer Wiki. User SackZement signature.gifSackZement <Talk> 03:16, 23 August 2014 (PDT)


There are two things that seem to bug me, and those things are the Featured Article & Did You Know... sections. The Engineer Update was featured for a couple months (I think), and the Did You Know... section should have new content as well. You can recycle old content, I wouldn't care, but these things NEED TO CHANGE!!! M15513c0mm4nd (talk) 18:14, 17 September 2014 (PDT)

I second that. The featured article is over a year old and well overdue for a change. There are several more "Did You Know?" to be shown, and some will never be shown for years at this rate. I suggest at least monthly changes, since the main page is getting disgustingly bland. Admins, please notice this message. --  Heeeeyyyy, everybody! It's Meester Tweester!   21:55, 21 September 2014 (PDT)
Featured article updates slowly due to a lack of articles of high quality. Please see TFW:Featured articles to suggest new articles.
Did You Know requires user submissions, and is updated as soon as 9 new DYKs are available.
If you need something from the staff, 2-3 staff members are generally on the IRC. If it's particularly urgent, say "~staff" in chat. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 12:36, 18 October 2014 (PDT)
Well, there is plenty more than 9 DYKs available. I am sick and tired of seeing the "zombie spy" trivia every time I come here. --  Heeeeyyyy, everybody! It's Meester Tweester!   20:14, 23 March 2015 (PDT)

Is it a idea to add a page about populair clans on TF2 or Steam. So yes, can i add the page Villager3056 (talk) 02:33, 22 October 2014 (PDT)

Please add posts to the bottom of discussion pages.
This page is not for general discussion. Please see TFW:Discussion instead.
I only saw a teaser page, not a released update. Do you have more information?
Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 14:02, 29 October 2014 (PDT)

Im saying we need to get everything ready for when the update does release, hell its only a few hours from now, dosnt hurt to be prepared, just set a bunch of shell pages and we will fill them in when we get information --This just got signed by Doctor Martex (talk) 15:44, 29 October 2014 (PDT)

Latest update

Since the End of the Line update was released on December the 8th and it is December 20th i think that we need to put at least something in there so that people know

So that people know what? Also, please sign talk post edits by adding a ~~~~ at the end of your edits. --User atf412 FoxIcon.png atf412 (talk) 09:18, 20 December 2014 (PST)

Smissmas 2014

No links or anything, just saying , this smissmas has 3 new weapons, now that may look bad , but there are pretty amazing festives. By the way , just adding this , nothing serious but what do you think about the festive and new weapons. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Evolvedsauron‎ (talk) • (contribs)

Did you Know...

Its been a while since any trivia has been added to the main page. given there's plenty to choose from, can we have someone in charge to check those and put them to good use? Metaru (talk) 06:07, 29 March 2015 (PDT)

Deleting Accounts

Hi, I'd like to delete my account or at the very least hide it. I don't know where to put this. Bluemen230 (talk) 17:33, 17 July 2015 (PDT)

It is not possible to delete or hide wiki accounts but we can rename it to something that contains random characters or the like so no one knows it is your account. Please provide a new (random) user name if you agree with that. User SackZement signature.gifSackZement <Talk> 00:22, 18 July 2015 (PDT)

Thin layout

How about fixing the layout to work better with viewports with small widths?--Henke37 (talk) 07:22, 2 September 2015 (PDT)

New featured article?

PASS Time should be featured on the front page.

Or you could revamp the whole Wiki itself?

Just some thoughts …

TheSwaggiestLoser (talk) 12:05, 8 July 2016 (PDT)

Featured articles are only changed once in awhile and we only put what is nominated. PASS time isn't nominated to be a featured article and since it just came out of Beta,

It most likely will not be until all changes are done. Same with the formatting as it still needs work for the page. Ashes (talk) 12:08, 8 July 2016 (PDT)

Fix language tab on right side menu

When visitors is located on english version of main page, they cant change language through right menu. It's uncomfortable. MirScout 03:43, 13 April 2017 (PDT)

Are we unable to have Collapsible elements?

I've made attempts to make collapsible elements, or tables rather, no progress. I wonder if they disabled/ban the collapsible element, feedback/help would be appreciated. MikeMan2332 (talk) 06:13, 30 October 2017 (PDT)

We indeed have collapsible elements, look no further than the table at the top of this very page. I think there's not much more to it than just adding a 'collapsible' class to the table, something like {| class="wikitable collapsible" .... { TidB | t | c } 06:20, 30 October 2017 (PDT)

Adding New Content

Is it me, or has the Main Page stayed the same for a while now. I feel like we should change the featured article from the Gunslinger to something else. It has been the Featured Article for a long time. Change it to a weekly featured article. Also, if possible maybe we can add a monthly/weekly poll for users to use, so we can see their TF2 info and help the users get more involved in the Wiki. One final idea is to have the Team Fortress 2 page put on the index of the Main Page. If anyone has more ideas, add them to the bottom, we can make some great contributions to the Wiki this way!

Index update 2019

  1. Shouldn't one of Contracker or Jungle Inferno Campaign take the place of something on the Index Column 1 or 3?
  2. Shouldn't Comics take the place of something on the Index Column 1 or 3?

Maybe Item Quality and Critical Hits go.

An idea for translated main page

There is a navigation section which showed "Guidelines", "Discussion" etc, which doesn't appear for translated home pages.

And so Dereko tried adding a navigation (which is also shared with other important zh-hans pages) right there to improve the zh-hans page, though without a formal discussion (please forgive me if it's rude).
The navigation section includes useful links for both translators and visitors, from where they can enter translation progress page much easilier than before, or use another page I am working on to search for pages using Chinese names.

You can have a look at here (very clear with a Chinese TF Logo), and Dereko wonders if it's ok to keep it.

Hyperlink name: why don't we just call it 'archive'?

Dear people of the TF wiki,

In the Featured article section, there's a 'Previously featured' hyperlink.

but the page which through the hyperlink has current featured article, not only previous featured articles.

why don't we just named that hyperlink as 'archive'? It would be much appropriate name. 123rse (talk) 08:51, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

The previous featured articles are right below the current featured article. See Template:FeaturedArticle#Previous_featured_articlesTark lm(pt-br) 17:04, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
