Hello! Thank you for the consideration, even though I haven't really been active the past few days. If granted adminship, though, I'd definitely put more time into trying to clean up some of the things I see around.
Hey Amphioxus, I've been working on getting a new main page up, and want you to look it over (you have permission to edit it) and provide any insight or details on how things should be changed or just change it yourself. I want this work to be the new main page of the wiki that everyone stops in at. Please note that I am not attempting to make that page "as small as possible" but rather to make it as interesting, useful, and to the point as it can be.
Created a new page today in regards to the Afterlife enchantment from Harken Scythe. The first paragraph works but that last sentence in it seems off to me. Mind taking a look over it and changing it to maybe sound a bit better?
Hey! I created a channel on an IRC server for us to speak in real-time if needed. You can find the IRC channel information at Forum:IRC Channel. For a definition of what IRC is, you can visit wikipedia. Hope to see you on there some time! If you need any additional information let me know.
Hey! I would like for a discussion to happen on who should adopt this wiki before any adoption requests happen. It has been some days since this thread was created on here but no response. I am attempting to get ahold of known editors that seem to be semi-active on the wiki to add information to the discussion. You can find the thread at:
Sorry for the extremely late response! School started for me about a week and a half ago, and it's been very (very) hectic since then. (Hectic as in I've only gotten 13 hours of sleep total this week - I don't know how much that is for college students, but it's unpleasant for a 15-year-old.)
I'd say you're definitely the most qualified to adopt this wiki. Had school not started, I'd be contributing far more, but I've fallen off the editing recently. Please feel free to edit the request and take out my name and any of that, if it hasn't already been removed.
There has been a lot that has happened during this time. I have spoken briefly to JeterNYY and a staff member of the community wikia had contacted them. You should be able to find more information on what is going on within the forum thread and the adoption request thread.
How do you add the recipe templates to the pages as well as the individual images? Completely confused xD Added recipe images before though.
Also, for the Quiver page, not sure if I should add a new page or add descriptions for both Quivers. There are two quivers: the Legends mod one and the BetterStorage one. The description on that page is for the Legends one but the recipe is for the BetterStorage one...
I'm not exactly sure how to work templates, either. Usually, I just end up copy-pasting a template from another page, then editing it. Just upload any sprites of the item you have if they don't exist already, and type in the image file name when editing the template.
As for the quivers, I never even noticed that there were two different ones. I guess having two pages is fine, as I know there's two pages for Darkwood Natura/Twilight Forest. That's an awkward combination of description/recipe, though LOL. I'll look into it if THE BERK hasn't already fixed it :)
Also, every template should have a doc associated with it, you can find that doc on the templates page, if for whatever reason the template page does not include it on the template itself, it should be under /doc, for example: Template:Grid/Crafting Table and Template:Grid/Furnace both have docs. I've recently added the one for furnace and re-worked a bit of the crafting table. Those docs are what teaches you how to use a template.
I've found a few pages that really need to be deleted or expanded and I've had an impossible time trying to find a forum detailing the changes that need to be made to the wiki. You're ranked number one and I'd imagine you would know what's going on, so I thought you'd be a good person to ask, where the heck do I go to report a lousy page? And if we don't have a forum for talking about this stuff, let's make one pronto!
Hi! I've seen you a lot around the Wiki lately, so glad to meet you :) Well, unfortunately, I'm actually pretty new to this stuff too - all I can do is categorize the page into Stub or Candidate for deletion. I can't say that I've seen the mods active once since I've joined, so I think that tagging them is the best we can do for now. I know what you mean by lousy page, though. Why do people even bother making pages for vanilla items with no added Hexxit usage ugh
Making a forum thread sounds like a great idea! I've never actually stepped into the forums before, but if you start a thread, I can help edit it/add my own pages of concern.
Sorry, guys, school just started for me and I've been a little busy lately. I'd love to make a forum thread, but I'm afraid I don't really have the skills to make anything fancy. I don't even know how to make links in a wiki, so I wouldn't really be the guy for the task. Although, if we don't really care about what it looks like but just care about the function, I suppose I could do that. And of course I can search around the wiki and help to clean things up. I'm willing to do research in-game and online to find information for pages if it's needed, too. In fact, I put up a blog post that contained almost exclusively personal research in-game, and it took me a couple of hours. I'm just not so good at designing the page's look.
Honestly, the only forum I'm familiar with is College Confidential, as a high school student nervous about SATs and APs and whatnot. School starts for me in about one and a half weeks - noooo.
It's probably going to be okay, though, if we just clean it up a bit and add some extra information. I've always wanted to go into Creative mode and actually do a bit of that research and stuff, but I always get caught up toying around with the Naga (spawn it with a bunch of skeletons) or some other boss. This wiki just needs a bit more clean-up to look more professional, so I'm sure we can manage fixing it up a bit. :)
School's startin for you too soon? Movin in on 28th, so trying to get all the work done beforehand xD
And I'm pretty familiar with forums. We technically have one, but it's hard to use and out of sight pretty much. Ah well, no idea who's the official wiki admin(s) but don't know if that's the only type we can have
There is a lot lacking on this site that needs to happen, like active staff members. Also there should be pages containing the user groups of admins/staff/etc but it doesnt exist. I may end up contacting wikia staff and see if they can do anything about this.
School also starts for me on the 28th! Junior year of high school, so things are really building up soon :(
My main complaint about this wiki is that the admins don't delete clearly unnecessary pages. There's a massive category filled with them, but no administrative action. I've only seen an admin active recently once, sadly. If you contact the Wikia staff, hopefully they'll be able to fix something...
