  • I think the menu for events needs some updating to add the events, specially the latest halloween one. Plus I think some recurrent ones should be changed to "Event name" "Year" some already have it but not all.

  • Since you've been around longer can you take a look at shards? They all start by saying they are a shard item but then say they are an Arcane item, not sure if it's incorrect, correct or what's up but overall it's pretty confusing and the variations between shards makes it even more confusing since some say they are only arcane, others only shard item, others mix the both so it's rather confusing.

  • Seems like almost all of the items, bosses (like chest keepers) and maybe some other little known pages don't have a single article (the, a, an).

  • I see something that bugs me in almost every single article. Doesn't help that most are written by different people with different rules for syntax and I still have no idea what I'm doing with images and stuff like that. When I start to add additional detail and edit text I start to wonder if the additional detail is needed or just clutter (like in the bosses#small armies in the end it says "Common bosses drop no orbs" I wonder if it's needed to add "by default" and then a new sentence explaining Chaos Gems ) or if the text doesn't need editing at all and it's a waste of time just because in my head it doesn't sound right, but in many others' heads it does.

    • Just edit. If you think something can be improved, do it. Someone will review your edit and maybe will change something, improve it even more by adding more or correcting already existing content.

      But there are few rules you should follow:

      1. Simple and short - people don't come here to read 3k+ words long essays (maybe some do. I certainly don't). They are here for information, funny content and discussions. Don't write extremely long sections or articles, keep it short but provide as much essential information as possible.
      2. Use headers - the worst thing is a block of text. Too long, too hard to read. Organize content using headers so that users may easier find what they are looking for.
      3. What's this about? - don't write stuff that is totally unrelated to what the article/section is about. If article is about bosses and they have this specific mechanic, let people know they do! Tell them also a little about how it works, that they may increase orbs by crafting gems and other stuff but (here comes rule number 4!)
      4. Don't duplicate content - it's hard to maintain everything everywhere. We have 235 pages and the number will increase. We might think that adding a description of something somewhere is okay because it explains stuff. 3 months later it will be misleading and not updated because everyone forgot it is there, so don't do that. If something is explained somewhere else, only mention this something and link to that article, it will be probably updated and well maintained (linking also allows us to check what points to certain article and easier spot articles which require updating). If you desperately need to include some information, use lst (please, don't overuse) or a template that includes content. If you don't find what you need, you might create a template or ask me to do so.
      5. Use templates - Templates standarize content. They also facilitate changing the apperance of... stuff. It's way easier and faster to change only one line in one place instead of changing that one line in 100 articles by hand.

      When it comes to syntax, well... as you see. We don't have strict standards, every article looks different but you should notice the style which is the most common.

      I hope this helps you somehow.

  • What's up with this strange widening of images in the normal editor? http://prntscr.com/g5sshr

    • Normal editor is a bit buggy. This is one of the things why I don't like it.

      Generally when an image is added to the page it's in full res. We may scale it down by providing additional parameters.

      • [[File:Blood.png|x30px]] will add image that is at most 30px high and preserves original width-height ratio, doesn't stretch image.
      • [[File:Blood.png|40x30px]] will add image that is 30px high or 40px wide and preserves original width-height ratio, stretches image.
      • [[File:Blood.png|30px]] will add image that is 30px high or 30px wide and preserves original width-height ratio, stretches image.

      We use the first version. It doesn't require us to remember what max size each image has, the image simply won't be bigger than it can (setting x80px on image that is 50px high will display image that is 50px high not 80px) and is guaranteed to be at most 80px high. This works well on articles but looks horribly in visual editor. Visual editor displays images in their max size. Restricting height makes it use that max height but it still will use image's max width.

  • First by namespace (which you use if you use the normal editor and not the classic source editor) you mean the name of the link after wiki/ ? For ex. Chest ; Greed_Splinter ; Category:Shards and etc. ? And second which is better: the normal editor or the classic source editor? 

      Loading editor
      1. http://zombidle.wikia.com/wiki/<here is the name of the page> . Namespace is the part of the name that is followed by colon eg. Category:Shards is in namespace Category and User:Rekojez is in namespace User. This doesn't impact anything unless you get into very advanced wiki stuff. It's just nice to know thing.
      2. I use source editor because it gives me way more control over what I'm doing and allows me to access more advanced aspects of editing. Visual editor has many limitations, however it's quite simple to use and doesn't require knowledge of wiki syntax.

  • If you could, please review what I added for accuracy, syntax, and content.  I think I did a good job, but I didn't include any hyperlinks to other sections of the wiki.  Not sure if it's necessary for the tapping strategy section.  But if you think it might need more, I'll gladly edit it to make it more fluent.

    Thanks!

      I've added headers to make it more structured and merged it with Increasing low-level speed or whatever that was section because that was also tapping strategy.

      If you want to further improve that section of the article, you should add images showing where to place cursor.

      Feel free to edit, do more good work and contact me when you want :P

  • What math did you use to calculate those values ?

    You did not give a change comment.

  • Any idea what's going on with wiki activity? It is permanently cached. It's like 2 weeks or so, almost no changes. No new comments, no last edits.
