Contributing to the wiki

There are many ways in which you can help. Don't be afraid to edit and create articles!

Improving existing articles

Adding missing stuff to navboxes/lists
  • ☑ Most content should be listed on the wiki navboxes.
  • Navboxes can be edited via the v-d-e links in their upper left corner.
  • ☑ Most feat pages reflect the most recent version and are in good condition.
  • Additional detailed explanations should be added, especially when game mechanics are ambiguous.
  • ☑ Most item pages are in good condition.
  • Tabbed item infoboxes be edited via the v-d-e links in their upper right corner.
  • Pages in Category:Components with example stats need to be updated with their stat ranges.
  • Detail pages; write walkthroughs, etc.
  • Every quest page should have a small screenshot, see #Uploading images.
Characters, Enemies
  • Detail pages; add any missing data to infoboxes.
  • Detail pages; most have short sections or are stubs/redirects.
Psi abilities, Abilities, Status effects
  • Detail pages where necessary.
  • Detail pages; these are really lacking in story/lore details.
  • Many of the pages for individual skills have lists that need expansion.

Creating new pages

Check out the Special:WantedPages for a list of frequently linked-to pages that don't yet exist. Feel free to create any of them!

Characters, Enemies
  • ☑ Most locations already have articles on the wiki.
  • There's Template:Location Infobox and Template:Locations navbox
  • Zones lists every zone file, its article and map screenshot
    • Every zone should have its own detailed article later on, for now locations only have larger common pages
Status effects
  • ☑ Most status effects already have articles on the wiki.
  • Template:Ability Infobox is also used for status effects
  • There's Template:Status effect navbox
  • You can use existing status effect pages for reference
  • Status effects should be added to relevant main article when they share name (e.g. Irongut medicine item and status effect)

Uploading images

See File:Misc icon.png#filelinks for pages that still lack images

Screenshots and editing!
  • Icons should be 33x33 PNG or few px larger, with transparent background
  • NPC/mob models should be roughly 100x100px or a bit larger, similar in size with the portrait next to it
    • Unique NPCs can use cropped screenshots to illustrate their surroundings
    • Generic NPCs and mobs are better off with transparent background
  • Quests infobox supports 300x200 images, can be a key event or point of interest in the quest
  • Every area should have a map image, preferably transparent, fully explored and without visible NPCs
    • Most zones have their map images in the wiki, check Zones for image redlinks.
