  • Is there some formatting policy that game titles need to be in italics?

      You also changed links inside of infoboxes from the shortened "Mafia" to the full "Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven". We prefer the shortened version of Mafia (which is the actual name of the game btw, "The City of Lost Heaven" is a fan based addition)

      I only did that because the page itself is called "Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven." If the official title itself is Mafia I would recommend renaming the page title as such, as a fan-given title should not be the name of an official page, no?

      And agreed, in future we shall iron out all the kinks before making any sort of edits in the same vein.

      We discussed that on a few occasions here. When it started or where it came from are unclear, but at some point someone tacked "The City of Lost Heaven" to the name and it took off to the point where everyone started calling it that and it just stuck. Even official gaming and retail sites call it that, including the people at Mafia Game and 2K. Every other language site for the game here on Fandom uses it.

      I'd love to change it, but it's so ingrained with the fans as the proper name that it would likely piss a lot of them off.

  • There is nothing official stating that Joe died in Mafia II, until such conformation does exists his page will remain as is.

    • Okay..how about changing his name? it's actually stated in game that his first name is Joseph, so the Joseph "Joe" Barbaro part shouldn't have been undone.

    • where does it state that in the game? I only ever heard it as Joe and I'd like to confirm that.

    • I noticed that you just changed the protection level for Joe to admin only. Are you planning to make that change permanent, or is it only temporary until the issue gets settled? The reason I'm asking is that I noticed the grammar can be improved, and I was planning to do that when I have time.

    • Whenever there is an edit war going on like that the page is locked temporarily until things get settled.
