You can find a comprehensive list of all Logs, here.

NOTE: The pages List of logs in Dead Space and List of logs in Dead Space 2 should not be moved but should be edited at some point so that their links direct to the correct spaces.

Ongoing GoalsEdit

Proper CategorisationEdit

Please take a look at the current Content Category scheme and keep it in mind or look at it for reference, in the future.
When adding a category you should try adhere by these instructions:
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Subcategories should only be included in their Immediate Parent Category (IPC), and not to the Root Parent Category (RPC), unless those two are the same or otherwise stated.
  • The above instruction does not prohibit you from including categories, subcategories and pages in more than one category, but only do so when it makes perfect sense.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Root Parent Category: Characters
    When adding a page to one of its subcategories, you should also add said page to the Parent Category (Cascading Categorisation).
    For example, if you want to add the page of Isaac Clarke to the Category of Sprawl Survivors, you should also add it to its Parent Category, Characters.
  • Root Parent Category: Locations
    Same as above.
  • Root Parent Category: Necromorphs
    Same as above. Note that the only subcategories of this category are the Bosses and Deleted Enemies. Standard Necromorphs (e.g. Slasher) only fall into the Parent Category.
  • Root Parent Category: Logs
    When adding a page or subcategory to one of its subcategories you should only add it to the category that the page falls immediately under (IPC).
    For example, if you want to add a category to a Dead Space 3 log, that is found in chapter 5, you should only add it to the category "Dead Space 3 Chapter 5 Logs". In return, the "Dead Space 3 Chapter 5 Logs" category, should only be included in the "Dead Space 3 Logs", etc. as per the General Instruction.
  • Root Parent Category: Games
    Same as for Logs, except for game pages (e.g. Dead Space 2) which should be included in both their eponymous category, their RPC, as well as one of these categories: "Main series" or "Other Games" (Cascading Categorisation).
    For example, Dead Space 4, should be included in both the categories "Games", "Main Series" and "Dead Space 4".
  • Root Parent Category: Lore
    • Subcategory: Organisations
      Should have Cascading Categorisation up to this Category.
    • Every Other Subcategory: No Cascading Categorisation.

The Categories for Films and Books need no specific explanation.
