Read me first! Guide to Contributing to the Wiki

FAQ

  • I see a guide that was ported over, should I edit it?
Your edits may be fruitless. Most of the old guides will be rewritten.
  • What pages need re-writing and updating?
View the tools page below, or click the link and use the spreadsheet. It will link to pages that need rewriting. Otherwise, press around until you find a red link. This means the content is missing and needs to be added.
  • 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 see a red link! Should I make a new page?
As of 8/13/2017, infrastructure has not been completed yet. You should contact a member of wiki-staff on discord for help regarding making a new page. Pages will be categorized into projects, and those projects will detail how you should go about making a new page. Similar to this one your in right now.
  • How do I become apart of the wiki-team?
Make enough good edits consistently and you will be contacted about if you want to be added. This will give you access to a discord channel where you can coordinate more easily with other editors. No, your one guide you wrote isn't good enough. Fix content, maintain the wiki and help organize and then you will be added.
  • 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.
  • I have a question, comment or concern.
user:skeeveo is the project lead for the wiki. Contact him with those.
