If you know which pages exactly then I can take a closer look whenever I have the time or someone else in this thread can! (I’m assuming it’ll be the majority of the main equipment pages due to new items being released so relatively often).
So I’ve been a bit inactive recently when it comes to editing the wiki. A part of it is that I’ve been busy IRL and the free time I have I was dedicating to other things. However, another part of it is that I haven’t really been actually playing the game, and the wiki edits I have done more recently have been ones that are fairly easy to do just from browsing the XML at most.
Unfortunately, I’m still not really interested in actually playing the game in its current state (I’ll probably pick it back up once the Unity beta releases). But I’d still like to make the wiki better.
Some things I’ve noticed that I can work on are:
- new additions to the game that I can just read the XML for, eg skins
- updating pages where the subject of the page has been updated sometime in the past and the page doesn’t reflect this yet
- general rewriting of pages to make them read better. This is a pretty big one and I’m hoping that I could do a lot of pages some justice. For example, many pages currently have historical information on the subject in the very first paragraph of the page. Important information to keep? Yes, but moreso in a “History” subheading further down the page. The first paragraph of the page should ideally summarize and/or give the most important details of the subject.
- related to the above, just hopefully making the pages read better by adding in hyperlinks, correcting grammar issues, separating text into appropriate subheadings/categories, adding in templates where templates would help with readability, etc
I want to help get the wiki to such a state that it’s comparable quality-wise with sites such as the Minecraft or Terraria wiki, because I think that’d be great support to the community to have such a powerful resource on-hand.
Not as glamorous as creating completely new pages whenever new items and dungeons and enemies are added to the game… but in my eyes it’s still just as important for the overall image of the wiki. Just let me know if it seems like I’m overstepping with my edits in any way.
