Dev:Game Wiki Work
(Redirected from Game Wiki Work)
Note: Most points in the Player pages section can be edited by everyone, while other pages, like dev pages, usually need more technical know-how.
So please feel free to help!
- Mapping out areas, and uploading these in a useable picture format for their specific areas. This includes Hurnscald, Tulimshar, Graveyard, Candor, Asphodel Moor, specific linked caves, and any other named area.
- Note any missing items, and add them, following the pattern of the other item pages.
- Highlight any outdated pages, such as map locations, references to changed quests, or even old pictures that no longer match the game.
- It would be really helpful if somebody can go through the Aidan and Ishi page, and add the correct values to the monsters with a question mark, replacing the question mark with the actual monster points that are given for each kill.
Pertaining to The Mana World.
- Due to changes in game, translations will need a rework. If anyone is skilled in translation (having two or more languages, with one being English), please let someone be aware of what you can do. You can start by looking at THIS link, or contacting one of the wiki admins, or GMs in game. You can also leave a comment on the forums.
- Adding more screenshots to Magic page
- Screenshots: Place images in correct year and add images from forum to fill in missing years
- All pages: add links to the appropriate scripts, and modify gitorious links to their respective github links.
- Pages made for unreleased items from page references.

Pages with frequent updates
Some pages need to be checked frequently if they are up to date, mostly because members listed in them change or pages in their category get added or deleted frequently:
- Monster Reference and Items
- Game Masters
- Developer Archive and Contributors (Note: see this list)
- Category:Under Construction and Category:Outdated (some are listed in "To-Do")
- Image maps: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ImageMap It would help developers and players to have a better world overview, and a different quest access as well.
- Spoilers: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Spoilers The Spoilers extension adds a spoiler tag that will hide a block of text. The spoiler button's show/hide message can be customized for each set.
- Variables: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Variables The Variables extension allows you to define a variable on a page, use it later in that same page or included templates, change its value, possibly to a value given by an expression in terms of the old value, etc.
