Read me first! Guide to Contributing to the Wiki

FAQ

  • What pages need re-writing and updating?
Visit categories of template messages, such as category:outdated or Category:Cleanup tagged articles with a reason field
  • Why did we need a new wiki? Why didn't we just edit the old one?
The purpose of the new wiki is to give new structure and remove older articles which set bad examples. Always use the new guide while editing pages. It also encourages new editors to make changes they otherwise would have thought was correct.
  • I'm not sure how my content should be structured.
When in doubt, check how Wikipedia, or a Gamepedia site does it. We probably do the same.
  • How do I use Wiki mark-up?
Wiki Markup is the language that wikis use on their articles. We also use lua for more advanced modules. You can learn about markup from Wikipedia.
  • Why is there higher quality standards now?
Some older editors may remember there being lower quality standards, and now we have slightly higher ones - but we aren't expecting Wikipedia level writing. However, we are still expecting some level of quality. Consider this: If it wouldn't be acceptable in our code, it wouldn't be acceptable here. Similarly, we expect that pages be formatted similarly so that the wiki is more accessible and user friendly. When writing standards are of a low quality - and when a page needs to be coherent - it makes users move away from our Wiki, turning the whole thing into a joke more then something that people would enjoy reading. And no! This doesn't mean that jokes aren't okay - we don't want to take away the fact that this is a game, and we want to keep the wiki fun to edit and fun to read.
  • I don't think my writing is good enough to edit the wiki.
That's okay! The reason the wiki is open is so that others can make edits to your work to make it easier to read for everyone. Always assume good faith.
