Info and Guidelines

This page is designed to help wiki contributors know what needs to be done on the wiki. As these pages become complete, make sure to remove them from this page. If you need help first google, the help pages on wikipedia are very informative, and last ask in the discord #wiki channel.

If you see something like "Trees -> Acacia" It means that the section Acacia needs to be added to the trees page.

If you see "Crafting Recipes -> recipe:hay" It means the recipe for hay need to be added to the crafting recipes page.

Some items will be listed with a "-" and that means that item needs to be done in the most general of sense.

Specific pages that need to be done will look like this.

Some guidelines when making and editing pages.

  • Avoid redundant information
  • Avoid giving a history lesson
  • Articles must contain enough information to warrant a full page. If they do not have enough content, they should be merged with other similar articles. For example, there is no page on the minecraft wiki for Birch planks. All planks are in a combined article.
  • Don't write stuff about things that are not in the game yet.
  • No advertising, fan community pages, joke pages, etc.
  • Stick with American English or how it's spelled in-game for example use Axe over Ax.
  • In-game items, structures, mobs, etc should not be treated as common nouns and not capitalized.
  • Date formatting should be "Month DD, YYYY"
  • When making item/block specific pages, use the in-game name for the for the page name. For example a page for shale stone should be "Shale stone"
  • When uploading icons for grid recipes it should be "Grid [in-game name in proper english]" so shale stone would be "Grid Shale stone".

Stuff that needs to be worked on

Game content

Files needed

  • Arrow needs images of the different kinds of arrows in the damage chart.
  • When Arrowheads Is created, we will need images of each arrowhead type, and images of forging both 6 and 9 Copper arrowheads as examples.
  • Gemstone needs pictures of normal (not clear) quartz & olivine bits

Existing Pages need Reworking

  • Animal Husbandry needs updating with nest boxes
  • Leather needs a lot of work? should maybe be split up to Hides page and then leather? most of the info on this page is also already in Leather Working
  • MainPage -> Survival -> Blocks,Items,Guides
  • Water needs filling out, or merge with World Generation?
  • World Generation page needs more detail.
  • Foraging - What's important to have in your toolbar when first starting out. Stressing survival and progression. For instance, clay is not important to carry on you. Hope
  • Clothes (stub page rn)- better explanation of how to craft and maintain them, info about the tailor class if applicable
  • Armor - last edit November 2020. add new armours if applicable, add a section on what armours are best for a specific purpose/ which ones make sense to have early game
  • Soil - add tipshow to find terra preta, if applicable
  • move chat keybinds and group stuff into its own page.
  • temporal stability & temporal gears include as info in survival guide
  • Templates
    • Better crafting grid template
    • Clayforming
    • Template:Breaking currently breaks pages - encloses all text that comes after the template in <pre></pre> tags until a new line. -- Veerserif (talk) 19:25, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
I have edited that template to fix the issue. Lesson of the day: don't translate templates (that don't use wikitext). -- Veerserif (talk here or on Discord) 15:57, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
