PAX hint?

On the pax prime schedule, under an entry marked "Friday, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM, Raven Theatre Game Design 101" [[1]]

In there, there's a line of morse code: -.-. --- -- . - --- .-. --- --- -- ...-- .---- ----- translated is: "COMETOROOM310"

I don't know if that has anything to do with portal 2, but it seems in the vein of the E3 message. Maybe someone going can check it out. 99.51.150.83 01:01, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

E3 videos

Three will be seven of them, released in following days. That was stated in Valve's PR mailing list.

Yep, they've just posted two more. I wonder if we'll see anything that wasn't at the backstage presentation. -Vic

E3

There was an unsuprising lack of portal 2 in the EA portion of E3. Where's our surprise?And all that, yo. 00:15, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

A couple people emailed Gabe about this. His reply was "Not today. Yes E3" I'm suspecting tomorrow.

PORTAL 2 ANNOUNCED FOR PS3 IN E3 PORTAL WIKI NEEDS TO BE UPDATED.And all that, yo. 20:46, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Don't talk. Just do. AngryCore 10:58, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
ok, wwhat can I do???--And all that, yo. ☮ 00:21, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

GlaDOS voice

Does anyone else think GlaDOS' voice sounds a bit different to the original? Did they changed actors or are they just trying to use the whole "destroyed" feeling. I remember that they did say that GlaDOS voice will be just like when Chell destroys her. Anyway, I just prefer the old voice more and i hope they didn't changed voice actors. --Jaysc 14:20, 13 May 2010 (UTC) Where's the new voice then? --Ywa 22:17, 17 May 2010 (UTC)Yeah, I noted it too. I think it's still our beloved Ellen McLain, but instead they are returning to the more or less completely emotionless voice due to the fact that all her personality cores are destroyed (Ergo, emotion is lost.) - Andy.

Known image incomplete

Is known image section still incomplete? What are we missing from it? --Jaysc 21:47, 7 March 2010 (UTC) I think it's complete now. :) --Ywa 23:26, 7 March 2010 (UTC) It's "Known Images" It's what's known. Maybe there's something WE don't know that's missing, but considering its "Known Images" what we know is what makes it complete. You can't really ask that kind of question of course unless somebody knows something we don't. --Unknown 19: 57, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

I saw on Steam's Portal 2 page that there are still some new images still not posted to the wiki. Someone please put those images there; I can't do it cuz my computer won't let me. Thepwnedgod 19:26, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

New design

Changed the design to make it a bit more organized. Will continue tomorrow. Also, feel free to make changes to it.--Ywa 01:21, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

I would like to see research on the left side, and information is the middle, it just seems off in the current layout JRWR

Will do --Ywa 13:56, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

also having more information on the front page is not a sin JRWR

Maybe a proper latest news page giving a got timestamp timeline? --Jaysc 21:46, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Change Name?

Could we possibly (now that the ARG is over) change the name from this wiki from "Portal Puzzle arg wki 3.11 / whatever" to something like "Portal Wiki" or "Portal 2 Wiki"? i know what to do to change it but i dont want to edit the whole wiki name without permission :) Freekkiller7 15:31, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Just ask Ywa or JRWR. Although it's probably likely they'll say no. Thepwnedgod 19:29, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

ok, ive got some examples, we can change to (for example) (or the same image but a bit smaller) and then that's on the front page, and then we change to something with a portal and under there it says PORTAL WIKI

Thougts on that anyone? Freekkiller7 15:39, 7 March 2010 (UTC
Hm I like it the way it is. Portal 2 info should be on the 'regular' wikipedia imo. --ThaCURSEDpie 17:14, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't know, i like the current theme we have now and replacing it with portal 2 with all the bushes behind it might look out of place. --Jaysc 17:26, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
Portal 2 info should be on Combine OverWiki. This wiki is about the ARG. SiPlus 09:55, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Changing our wiki

This wiki should be changed to something like Valve Speculation wiki or something like that, in my opinion. For future Valve games like Episode 3. --Ywa 22:29, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Could do, although it's pretty portal intensive right now. --Jaysc 22:34, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. We would need to split it up and put all current articles in a Portal 2 category. And get a new domainname (valvespeculation.com? valveresearch.com?) if possible. --Ywa 22:35, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
It would be quiet most of the time though since we dont' exactly get that many news regarding valve's future games. --Jaysc 22:39, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
True. But the wiki is always available when it's needed. So we don't get crappy wiki's like this time. --Ywa 22:46, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
Well we need to make sure that the ARG is completely finished first. Then we can either start another one or convert this one into a fully portal wiki. I'm going to sleep now so i'll talk tomorrow! --Jaysc 22:53, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

There are NO major Portal exclusive wikis. The closest thing to something like that is the Combine Overwiki which serves a dual purpose. Since Valve have intended not to elaborate on the HL story in Portal (even if it is in the HL universe) I would say a dedicated Portal wiki would be justified. If something like this goes ahead, I am more than happy to rewrite and clean up the various templates and icons I created that I can definitely say I just slapped together. (In the rush I decided function over aesthetics were better.) Out ARG documentation could be condensed into a Portal:ARG (think Portal in terms of wiki terminology). The ARG information would be entirely appropriate for a Portal Wiki. --Pilk 23:17, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Plus, converting it to an overall Portal wiki means that a major name change would not be necessary. We already have it at portalwiki.net. --Derekristow 01:38, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm under the impression that portalwiki.net isn't owned by Ywa OR JRWR. Would have to clear that up... --Pilk 02:10, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't know who currently owns it. But it's now hosted/linked to my server. If we would keep this domainname, it might get stolen in a few months. --Ywa 06:55, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
A full portal wiki would take more time. Looking at the combine overwiki, it has a section will all the portal item already. However, if we do decide to make this, i wouldn't mind helping. =D--Jaysc 08:04, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Also just noticed that they started updating their portal 2 collection .
That's why a Valve speculation/research/rumour wiki would fit better. Since it doesn't exist yet (and doesn't need 24/7 updating). --Ywa 08:50, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Well our domain name is now actually portalwiki.net and we don't need any major changes to turn this into a portal wiki, just change the "PORTAL ARG WIKI" images to portal wiki and add alot more pages on the portal stuff and we have a good portal wiki, also i worked on the front page image, we would change this: to this: and that kind of little things!
No offence, but it looks like you streched GameInformer image and added Wiki in bold letters without even trying to blend it in =/ --Jaysc 11:57, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
This wiki doesn't exactly need an update 24/7 to be honest. If we do change, what exactly can we put up there right now? I havn't exactly heard that much episode 3 rumours as right now they seem devoted to Portal 2 --Jaysc 11:57, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
That's why this wiki would be only updated when there's any news related to upcoming games. Although making a full Portal wiki of it is interesting too. But Combine Overvwiki thing is already busy with that. --Ywa 12:23, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
So, what shall we do then? --Jaysc 15:26, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
I'll discuss it with JRWR. --Ywa 15:42, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Now that we know that E3 will resume the ARG, I guess we don't need to change it. Plus, not a lot of discussion has been going on. --Jaysc 23:53, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
JRWR and I decided to make a general upcoming Valve games discussion and rumour wiki. Because there're no leads to other games from Valve. The site will stay the same for the time being. --Ywa 09:10, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Protection

You really should protect the main page from anonymous users. Klow 13:43, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

As long as it doesn't get abused I don't see a reason why to block it. --Ywa 10:06, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Fake video

The fake youtube video that was posted today/ yesterday has been confirmed fake here:

i want that map

GamesCon

Don´t know somebody saw it but the release date for portal 2 is announced on 18 Augustus 2010 on Games Con. The release date is 9 February 2011. Couldn´t find it in text but this GameFix on IGN has it also in it. At 00:47, Now is the real reason I do this because I can't change the front-page. Thus I want to ask if somebody wants to do that for me. --83.163.20.22 07:17, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

New Co-Op Trailer

New Co-op trailer: I can't modify the front page, so can someone add that? 142.55.138.68 20:40, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Forget it. It's too late anyway. Thepwnedgod 19:33, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
