Hey all. I've been asked to point out that we've got a sister wiki for Hearthstone on Gamepedia. (We're on Gamepedia too, even though we have our own domain.) If any of you want to help get that wiki off the ground, please feel free to edit over there too! Thanks for being so quick to get this article up and running! -- 04:12, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft → Hearthstone
In November 2016 Hearthstone underwent a rebranding that dropped "Heroes of Warcraft" from the title (see BlizzardWatch, BlizzPro) and the moderators for the game's subreddit were specifically asked to change the subreddit logo from "Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft" to just "Hearthstone" (source). The Hearthstone wiki has already been (mostly) updated to reflect this change, but I'm not sure how it should be handled on Wowpedia. It's probably too tedious to go through and change all the links to this page to something like "Hearthstone (game)", so I'm thinking it might be best to leave this page at its current name, even though it's now technically outdated, but maybe replace the logo image with the new, "Heroes of Warcraft"-less version and change the intro to "Hearthstone, formerly known as Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft ...". I'm not sure about moving pages like Hearthstone: Mean Streets of Gadgetzan to just "Hearthstone: Mean Streets of Gadgetzan", or maybe just straight up "Mean Streets of Gadgetzan", which might actually be more accurate to the official nomenclature. (For example, I don't think I've ever seen the Curse of Naxxramas adventure be officially referred to as "Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft: Curse of Naxxramas" anywhere, only "Curse of Naxxramas" with the sub-title "A Hearthstone Adventure". Correct me if I'm wrong on this.) Ultimately I don't really have any clue as to how to handle this, but I thought I'd point it out. -- DeludedTroll (talk • contribs) 11:59, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
- To "Hearthstone (game)"? Yeah, it's way overdue at this point, I'd say. Should probably keep the Heroes of Warcraft name as a redirect, though. -- DeludedTroll (talk • contribs) 12:13, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
Separate Lore Section?
So I rolled back my edits, but I was wondering - should there be a third Hearthstone article? As in, to represent the cardgame in-universe? There's a lore section in this article that partly covers it, but the result is that Hearthstone's canon status is lumped together with its in-universe status. Maybe something like "Hearthstone (tavern game)," or "Hearthstone (lore)," to have an article for the game, while the lore section on this page deals with the canon stuff.Hawki (talk) 22:48, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
- Probably. "Hearthstone (in-universe game)" would be the most straightforward name, I think. "Hearthstone (lore)" sounds to me like it would be an article talking about the digital card game's lore (alternatively lore about the objects called hearthstones), and "(tavern game)" is similarly unclear what it refers to at a glance since the digital game is also one that takes place in a tavern (the Tavern specifically). -- DeludedTroll (talk • contribs) 05:37, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
