There are many new pages have been created for buildings, items, locations, etc and many don't have images for the gallery. There are many pages with this image in their galleries, if you can, replace them with some good screenshots.

Font color change
The font color of The Forest Wiki was changed on the November 22, 2017. The color was chosen to reflect a color that is closer to that of the survival guide. If you have any issues with the font color, or if you have any recommendations. Please contact me via my talk page, The Forest Wiki:Admin noticeboard, or contact me on my discord server https://discord.gg/HuSSahh to discuss it. I am happy to help.

Mass deletion of unused images
On the 3rd and 4th of November 2017, a mass deletion was performed on most of the unused images, there was over 520 images. Unused means that they were not listed on any pages, this could be for a number of reasons. No images that are on pages were deleted. All images were checked prior to their deletion. They were deleted for one or more of the following reasons:
- Was too dark and difficult to observe the content involved
- Contained borders of the software used to screenshot the image
- Poor quality or too small to make out the content
- The file didn't have a proper title outlining what the content was as well as the picture being too ambiguous
- No longer had a purpose
Please ensure that all future images are added to pages and maintained, this is not the responsibility of admins and wiki guardians to ensure this.
If your image was deleted, please be assured that it was not personal. I had personally deleted over 100 of my own images that met the criteria above. Due to the large amount of images that were involved, there may have been unfair deletions. If you believe the image was unfairly deleted, it is possible to restore the image. Please contact me via my talk page, The Forest Wiki:Admin noticeboard, or contact me on my discord server https://discord.gg/HuSSahh to discuss it. I am happy to help.
