Page Creation Reminders & Guidelines[edit source]

# The Standard
» Before creating a new page, please:

  • Consult similar pages and/or Templates. There are plenty of resources available already to aid in the process.
  • Check if there isn't a page already created for said topic.
  • It isn't necessary to have a page for every single weapon, mob, or armour piece, in the game. Any armour / weapon that holds an important value should be added, otherwise, please don't make a new page for any item that isn't important. (This guideline could change in the future)
  • Reuse images if you can. Please don't upload an entirely new, but same, image for each page that is created. If there is an outdated image, instead of uploading a separate file, simply replace the outdated version.

# Image Etiquette
» Images tend to be the topic of conversation here on the wiki. With each new update, many images become outdated, and are in need of replacement. When adding, updating, or changing images, please follow these guidelines:

  • In the search bar, search: File:Name. Name should be a file name that closely matches the one that you are choosing to upload. If you see an image that could be an outdated or incorrect version of the one you are updating, instead of uploading a completely separate image, replace the one outdated/incorrect one with your new one.
The purpose of this guideline is to lessen the amount of space that is taken up by images on the wiki.
  • For items, please upload with a transparent background if you can. It is much appreciated.
  • Please use the Wynncraft Resource Pack for images.
  • Please make sure the image is bright enough to see.
  • Please make sure there are no particles.
  • Please make sure the image was taken in F1 mode, that way the minecraft gui / overlay isn't present.
  • Please name the image before uploading. To be more specific, name it in accordance to the page where it will exist. For example: If it's a picture of the NPC King of Ragni, it would be ideal to name it KingOfRagni.png.
  • Please don't use shaders if possible.
  • Please make sure the image is taken at a proper distance (for example, most infoboxes use 200px as the standard size. If the image is too far away and the dimensions are too large, this isn't a good thing).
  • Please note: It can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days for an image to upload/update and appear. If your version doesn't appear immediately, please be patient and don't upload consequent versions.

# Conventions
» Please be mindful of these conventions when editing or creating a new page:

  • Please make sure your spelling and grammar is correct. If you aren't sure, go to Grammarly, and copy and paste your page into it. Then choose which way to check it and it will give you a list of things to fix and how to fix it.
  • When linking pages, please use: [[Link]] or [[Link|Nickname]]. Notice the double brackets.
Link refers to the page name you are linking to. It must patch the page name exactly (capitalization included).
Nickname can be used optionally to nicely incorporate links in text blocks. Suppose in my text block I said 'Wynn', and not 'Wynn Province', I could use: [[Wynn Province|Wynn]]. In other words, it's like renaming the hyperlink from 'Wynn Province' to 'Wynn', without changing the page name for 'Wynn Province'.
Note: When using plurals, you can put the "s" after the closing brackets without needing to retype the whole link. For example, [[Emerald Merchant]]s will link to Emerald Merchant, but display as "Emerald Merchants".

# Infoboxes / Templates
» Please read through this section if you consider updating or creating infoboxes and/or templates:

  • As of right now, the wiki admininstration would prefer that no one attempts to update infoboxes, update templates, or create templates without consulting either one of them first. The risk is too big if there is an issue with the template.

Wiki Suggestions & Messages[edit source]

» If you have any suggestions or general messages, please write here.

Please also see our Todo list.

Condensing the Community Portal, Getting a Bot, Admin Activity[edit source]

First, I believe it would easier for users to post on the Community Portal if the beginning chunk of it was made into a template (e.g., everything from the beginning of the page to "Please see our Todo list" was replaced with <!--Post beneath this line-->{{Template:Community portal}}). It would mean that a user has a lot less content to sift through when loading up the page editor.

Next, I would like to introduce SLSbot, my bot. Technically it's SLScoolBot (there was already an unrelated SLSbot on Twitch), but I prefer SLSbot. My experience as a bot operator can be seen here, and the only bot account on this wiki has been inactive for several months. I would like to run a bot here, with the admin team's permission. There are a number of tasks that could be made easier with a bot—partially because a bot only downloads the text of the page, not anything else that a browser loads in; partially because a bot can fluently scan all articles for key words; and partially because it can get repetitive, and the quicker the massive editing operation is, the better, for both the wiki and the person.

Finally, I have noticed that the administrators of this wiki are inactive; none of them have edited since July or August. Administrators are important to have on a wiki, both for technical (e.g., giving Slscoolbot a bot flag) and authoritative (e.g., approving the template idea) reasons. On the chance that none of the current ones come back, there a couple options. First, we check with the WynnCraft staff to see what they suggest. If they have no opinion, then the active users of the wiki could decide who should become administrators and bureaucrats of the wiki. I'm thinking that, if another user supports this idea, this gets put on the front page in an agreeable position.Slscool (talk) 05:50, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi, please get in contact with me by starting a conversation with me on the forums. --Therealcolin350 (talk) 20:09, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Currently the only bot is inactive because there are currently no bot tasks. Even though the current administrators are not very active at the moment, they can still be reached via multiple ways (like the forum). --MarkusRost (talk) 10:52, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Bovine Church[edit source]

I am not sure if there is much lore on the Bovine Church, but if there is, I believe an article should be created for it.Slscool (talk) 04:42, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
