Third-Person Project
This article is within the scope of the Third-Person Project. This project is aimed at changing second-person to thrid-person when an article refers to a player character. For participation, please check the project page.

The Third-Person Project is a project that aims to convert all appropriate Nukapedia articles to third-person; the main goal is to remove second-person from gameplay-related pages.

Scope

- All articles, which will be listed below

- This forum contains the prelude to this project; helpful information can be accessed there.

Process

Every week, a list of 297 articles will be posted via a link in the "Progress table." Each link will be titled "Week X." The link will take you to the list of articles, and every page there must be completed (if needed) in order for that week to be completed. See the table and "Guidelines" section for more details.

Guidelines

In accordance with the following policy...

"Contributions should only use third-person (i.e. "the player character" not "this editor"). For example, it is proper to use: "Courier," "Lone Wanderer," "Warrior," "Vault Dweller," "Chosen One," "Sole Survivor," "they," "one," and similar, while it's improper to use: "I,' "we", "you," and each of their variations. 'The player character' may be used, but only in its proper third-person context. Keep first-person and second-person sentences out of articles. Talking about your own experiences in a familiar way should be kept to the discussion pages.

Notable exceptions to this rule are as follows:
-Bugs sections
-In-game quotes/Developer commentary
-Transcripts"

... third-person should be used when referring to any player character from any game. Please use your discretion combined with the following guidelines:

Pronouns/Subjects
Yes Do Use No Do Not Use
* "Player character"
* Common third-person pronouns
* "One" when not specifically referring to the player character
* "Player"
* Common second-person pronouns
* "One" when referring to the player character
* "Singular they"
  • Note: "Player" can be used when directly referring to the player not the player character.
  • Note: Do not make an effort to change second-person in an article's "Bugs" section.

Note: the "Week 1" completed half way; it can be worked on now, but it will be another day before the chart is complete.
