The Silent Hill task force is an organized task force dedicated to ensuring that all information on Wikipedia relating to the Silent Hill video game series is factually accurate and well-organized. To indicate that an article falls within the scope of this work group, please add "|Silent=yes" to the {{WikiProject Video games}} talk page template. For example, {{WikiProject Video games|Silent=yes}}

Article guidelines[edit]

For more details on this topic, see the VG Article guidelines

Besides the usual policies and guidelines, please make sure you are aware of the specific guidelines related to video game-related articles. Also ensure that you are familiar with the following topics:

  1. The five pillars of Wikipedia: a quick rundown of the five key rules you need to start editing.
  2. Simplified ruleset: sixteen rules of thumb to help you avoid problems.
  3. List of policies: A comprehensive list of the forty-two official policies with very quick summaries.


The Silent Hill task force is focused on various goals, all of which attempt to ensure that information is as organized and accurate as possible. Below are some ideal goals that you can use as a rubric, if need be.

  • Punctuation, grammar, and spelling should be correct.
  • Factual accuracy is important, cite sources if possible.
  • Be Bold!!! If you think something needs editing, go ahead!
  • Talk pages are always useful.

If you are unaware of what you can do to assist, a task list is also available, which is freely editable to allow cooperation among participants of the task force.

Article Class
Silent Hill (film) C
Delisted good article
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Start


Note: Splits to various individual articles on locations, characters, and monsters were undone, because they tended to be retellings of the plot with minimal sourced additional information (which could be covered in either "List of Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2, and Silent Hill 3 characters", or for design/development info, in the game articles themselves) and lacked stand-alone notability; these articles are the following: "List of Silent Hill locations", which redirects to "Silent Hill", and "Characters of Silent Hill 2"-"Harry Mason (Silent Hill character)"-"Cybil Bennett"-"Dahlia Gillespie"-"Alessa Gillespie", which all four redirect to "List of Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2, and Silent Hill 3 characters".

Article Class
Silent Hill C
List of Silent Hill media N/A
List of Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2, and Silent Hill 3 characters C
Pyramid Head A-Class article A
