MHWiki:Data Links

From MHWiki
Editors please note that this page is currently outdated and needs updating.

This page contains a list of the various pages that are linked together by the need to refer to the same information. It is meant to further aid editors in ensuring consistency throughout the MH Wiki. This is a necessity because it is basically impossible in a wiki, for example, to specify that White mice can be found in the Laboratory, and for it to be automatically updated into the Laboratory and Mice articles.

The links have been divided into specific categories, along with the link to the necessary pages whenever possible.

The lists themselves can become outdated if new pages are added that require the information. In which case, please make sure it stays updated.
