  • November 5, 2010 - TF2 Official Blog updated. TF2 Maintenance - November 9 - 1pm PST. The TF2 team updates us on item system downtime on Tuesday, November 9th from 1pm PST and an hour and a half on, leaving Backpacks, Loadouts, Trading, the Mann Co. Store and Crafting unavailable for the period. Additionally, all API users should note that item indexes are moving during the same maintenance block. Conveniently provided is a Steam Users' Forums thread with updates.
Item Indexes? I'm 99.9% sure that the item ID is being changed, not the definition index. (There are no negative defindicies) Ath 16:05, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Nicely caught. Pilk, could you fix that? ~ lhavelund (talkcontrib) 16:05, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Fixed? -- Pilk (talk) 16:09, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Perfect, thanks. Ath 16:11, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Date mistake?

  • January 3, 2011 - TF2 Official Blog updated. Have at 'em, lads! A community notice for the upcoming Pubs vs Pros Winter Wasteland matchup, where 6 competitive TF2 players take on 9 pubbers, and a reminder to watch ETF2L's Highlander Mix-up highlights on eXtelevision.

The blog was updated 6th of january, i suppose there is a very little mistake here :) CoiL- 00:37, 7 January 2011 (UTC) Nevermind, you are fast :) CoiL- 00:38, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Some thread about hats?

What has that got to do with TF2 news and events? Seems a bit silly to add a link to a thread on the SPUF when any number of threads are of equal or better quality. -- Pilk (talk) 05:52, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Apparently, you've never seen a hat in real-life before. -- En Ex (talk) 05:59, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
Of course I have! We don't need to publicise that thread specifically though. :P -- Pilk (talk) 06:01, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

New blog post

Please, add information about 10 march blog post. - Grand-O-Rand Painted Détective Noir 694D3A.png · (Talk) 13:11, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

I'll get to it later today. I was having too much fun trying out the Geisha Boy last night. -- En Ex (talk) 14:31, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Now we need information from 14 april blog post. POOTIS! - Grand-O-Rand Painted Détective Noir 694D3A.png · (Talk) 13:11, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
Someone needs to update this for the 'True Meaning' blog post on the 13th. RedXM 12:24, 14 December 2011 (PST)

Wrong URL

There is a mistake in a World War Wednesday URL, it must be http://www.teamfortress.com/uberupdate/index.html instead of http://www.teamfortress.com/uberupdate/index.html,. Please, change the link. The preceding unsigned comment was added by PlumbumTheScrub (talk) • (contribs) 07:12, 23 June 2011
What's the difference? -- flutterravie Talk Contribs 00:17, 23 June 2011 (PDT)
Thanks for the heads up. The current URL is still busted, but will rectify itself later today. -- En Ex (talk) 04:49, 23 June 2011 (PDT)


Guess there is grammar error in this word (august 4 2011 update), but this is "high-used template" so I'm scared because of those "warning" signs and don't wan't take responsibility of editing it D:

Edit needed to current event

Under "The Manno-Technology Bundle": "Bidwell bravely stole liberated Eight new Deus-Ex-themed items from Sarif Industries for your killing pleasure!" should actually read "Bidwell bravely stole liberated eight new Deus Ex-themed items from Sarif Industries for your killing pleasure!".

To make it easier, I included the wiki markup in this post with <includeonly> tags for copy/pasting simplicity. Thanks! --coreycubed / talk 17:01, 19 August 2011 (PDT)

Pictogram tick.png Done, but you also could have just said "Eight new Deus-Ex..." -> "eight new Deus-Ex..." :P seb26 17:05, 19 August 2011 (PDT)
Um, there's a reason I didn't, because there shouldn't be a hyphen between Deus and Ex. That's why I wrote it out... :3 --coreycubed / talk 13:38, 20 August 2011 (PDT)
I see what you mean, though. In the future, I will just include the snippet. Sorry, I was trying to be precise to avoid exactly this sort of problem. --coreycubed / talk 13:39, 20 August 2011 (PDT)

'Update this section'

Do we really need the 'Update this section' link? I mean, the page has been locked and can't be edited by everyone. MrPaulolefou WatDaFok Talk me! 10:23, 13 September 2011 (PDT)

I second this. It can't be edited by everyone. Rolandius 23:15, 21 September 2011 (PDT)
I changed the link caption to "View past news" since that's mostly what the page shows. seb26 23:17, 21 September 2011 (PDT)
But why the hell isnt the new blog post here yet? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thesage (talk) • (contribs) 00:01, 14 October 2011

What happened to the punctuality?

This template's ability to get updated timely seems to have fallen down a hole. What's up with that? Toomai Glittershine 19:17, 15 December 2011 (PST)

Meet the pyro in 2014?

Hi guys. I think it is a mistake. Or not? --Askarmuk 06:47, 3 February 2012 (PST)

This is a joke related to Valve Time. -- Killicon train.png Hefaistus - talk 07:14, 3 February 2012 (PST)
Lol thanks for the answer :) --Askarmuk 07:40, 3 February 2012 (PST)

Grammar and spelling thingies

Ah, I see someone on the staff has been fooling around. :P "a pair of uniquely. named rings" -> "a pair of uniquely named rings". Also, "Alladin's Private Reserve" -> "Aladdin's Private Reserve". Tabs 13:02, 20 March 2012 (PDT)

There are multiple things that need to be added to this. Just wanted to point it out since it seems to be a little neglected lately. Paint Splat TheValueOfTeamwork.png ClockworkSpirit2343 Scout emblem RED.png 17:34, 4 November 2014 (PST)

Recent Blog Posts?

There have been several additions to the TF2 blog including the recent Smissmas 2014, Mannpower Mode, The End of the Line Update, and the Taunt workshop that have yet to be added to the current events page. As a matter of fact the last "current event" listed happened several months ago and is actually "old news" at this point. I would love to be able to fix this myself however I am still learning the ins and outs of editing the TF2 Wiki, as such I would greatly appreciate it if a more experienced user or admin were to update the Current Events section. The Homepage of the TF2 wiki Is the first impression wiki-go'ers will see so it is always important that we keep it up to date so that we may leave as good of an impression as possible. Thank you for your time and consideration and I hope you will help in fixing this problem. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kenpachirin (talk) • (contribs) 16:35,21 April 2015‎

Could we get an update to this for the Community Workshop Maps update and the such? It's out of date by about 8 months and needs a few more of the newer blog posts. - Catjaz63 (talk) 20:09, 12 June 2015 (PDT)

August 9th, 2016 blog link is wrong

The link is currently directing to the Exclusive Disgaea PC Cosmetics page instead of the proper Saxxy Award 2016 announcement like it should be. ~Sven~ (talk) 08:54, 27 August 2016 (PDT)

Pictogram tick.png Done You saved science! — The preceding assigned comment was added by Tark {Finish Him!Contribs} 08:58, 27 August 2016 (PDT)

Does this need updating?

If so, how? I can get dates from the blog, but are the descriptions for each event taken directly from the website? It seems like the latest one for TF Birthday was summarized. ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 09:25, 13 April 2017 (PDT)

Anyone? It's from 2016! ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 16:12, 1 September 2017 (PDT)
Yes, it needs updating! The text is all self-written. That's why it's intended to be done by some talented native speaker. :) If you think you can cope with that, feel free to translate it. I'll then implement your translations in your name. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 23:29, 1 September 2017 (PDT)
Am a native speaker, "talented" is questionable, but it doesn't seem hard.
Apparently the current events is just paraphrasing the blog post from the official website.
What do you mean by "translate", though? Isn't this just for English? .-. ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 07:04, 2 September 2017 (PDT)
Well, I like the style in which the previous blog entries were written, they were short and informative and often just sounded very nice. But it's of course just my humble opinion. Sorry, I meant writing, not translating. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 07:11, 2 September 2017 (PDT)
If I wanted to update it, where would I write it (since I can't edit this template myself)? ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 11:25, 1 October 2017 (PDT)
Just start a sandbox and tell me or any other mod when they can merge it in your name. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 00:41, 2 October 2017 (PDT)
Got it, I'll be making User:Anyar/Current Events Sandbox. ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 05:33, 2 October 2017 (PDT)
For August 24, 2016's section, there's one/two typos. "Your's" doesn't exist, it should be "yours". Also, this one I'm less sure about, but it may or may not be "log into" instead of "log onto". ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 07:45, 2 October 2017 (PDT)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Thanks for the hint. Will be correcting them when I'll be merging yours. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 07:52, 2 October 2017 (PDT)

ooh nice outdent
I made one entry at User:Anyar/Current Events Sandbox, can you tell me what you think? ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 15:53, 2 October 2017 (PDT)
Sounds okay. I'm not professionally speaking English so I'm not the best judge. But it's definitely not bad. So please keep going, if somebody else has a better wording for any phrase he can edit it himself. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 04:34, 4 October 2017 (PDT)
Cool, I'll get to it then. If anyone wants to make edits feel free to edit the page. ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 07:36, 4 October 2017 (PDT)

Nikno, can you or someone else apply User:Anyar/Current Events Sandbox along with the typo corrections mentioned above? I do not plan on updating the template anymore as I don't have time for it any longer. It'll have to do until someone else updates it. Thank you. ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 21:07, 21 October 2017 (PDT)

Nobody updates this page?

I mean it's already 2017 now, and there are a lot of stuffs happening during the latest update. Such as ETF2L and Tips of the hat etc. Why nobody writes them? Hoto Cocoa (talk) 19:57, 2 October 2017 (PDT)

A user is working on this, please see the discussion above. — Tark lm(pt-br) 01:07, 3 October 2017 (PDT)
Tark, couldja tell me if the entry at User:Anyar/Current Events Sandbox fits the standard? ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 05:33, 3 October 2017 (PDT)
Pretty good in my opinion. — Tark lm(pt-br) 06:19, 4 October 2017 (PDT)
