Hearts in the patch notes[edit source]

Just to clarify: I don't actually think the patch notes, as written by Studio Wildcard, contain hearts, but it's what the Steam forums use to censor "naughty" words. I think leaving them in is correct, as that is how they appear, though. -- IllegalOpcode (talk) 10:04, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Official patch notes[edit source]

Recently the page got changed to link to community notes instead of the official patch notes. If anyone still wants to see the official patch notes (updated by developers) then the link is: http://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/0/594820656447032287 The community patch notes are updated by someone who copy & pastes the official patch notes few times a week. For up to date info you have to use the original link. 93.90.162.178 10:12, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi, the updated link to [1] is kind of a bit more official than the ones on steam, since it's on the official website. The notes there are of course also updated by developers. Did you notice, that the survivetheark.com-patchnotes were behind the ones on steam? Or did I you mean a different link by "community patch notes"?--Cadaeib (talk) 10:39, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
I had the impression that the patchnotes get updated faster on steam than on survivetheark.com. On a related note, since this page usually takes some time to catch up to the official changes, I regularily use this page only as a click-through to the official site. What do you think about the idea to include a link to the official patch notes on the Main Page?

I checked now and the notes on the "official" still state "Upcoming (v233, ETA: Jan 27)" while on the Steam it states "Upcoming (v233, ETA: Jan 28 afternoon EST) " and the detail "Upcoming Version: v233, ETA: Jan 28 afternoon EST". So the Steam version is really getting much faster updates than the "official".78.45.36.12 18:23, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Right now the community notes state "Current Version: v233.0" while Steam version states "Current Version: v233.1". 93.90.162.178 09:48, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
You're right, the topic on survivetheark.com seems to be a bit later sometimes. I added the steamlink again.--Cadaeib (talk) 16:37, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
