Help:Editing

From Legends of Idleon Wiki

Important note

After updates we generally update a lot of things via script, like droptables, npcs, enemies, and items. Other things are done manually.

Do NOT add unreleased, alpha content OR Treasure hunt walkthroughs (Lavas request) .

How to Edit

Please follow the Standards, Conventions, and Guidelines described below and conform to the wiki style. If you are serious about helping out, don't be afraid to ask on the official discord to get access to the wiki channel.

If you want to add nonsense, do so under your own user profile but please refrain from uploading nonsense images.

Style Standards, Conventions, and Guidelines

Edit Summaries

Edit summaries are not mandatory, but are encouraged. If included please summarize briefly what changes you made.

Naming

Plurality should match the in-game representation (so Bleach Logs are plural whereas Toilet Roll is singular).
Standardized Name Incorrect Names
Choppin Choppin', Chopping

Links

Please link to the exact page we want, eg linking a mob drop link to Baby Boa not Enemies or Bestiary and links to quests should be linked to the appropriate npcs page.
Correct Linking Incorrect Linking
Baby Boa, Picnic Stowaway Enemies, Quests, Bestiary

Pages/Categories

Items

Every unique Item needs its own item page. Tables are generated based on those pages. other item types later. All items except fishing Accessories, Stamps and Cards use Template:InfoItem. The rest can be found here

There is also a template to use for items that are crafted or produced. (see Farmer Brim or Trusty Nails for an example on these)

Templates

If you create a template, please include documentation on how to use it. Also add it to the appropriate category, like adding infobox templates to Category:Infobox templates or table templates to Category:Table templates.

Spoilers

Spoiler text should be hidden using collapsible sections. Tables can be hidden individually by adding the mw-collapsible and mw-collapsed classes. See https://csydes.miraheze.org/wiki/Help:Collapsing

Files

Filenames should use spaces between words. Sprites and other game assets should be PNGs, except for animated sprites which should be GIFs. Filenames should not include punctuation.
Make sure you upload the correct image the first time around. Due to a known issue on Miraheze it takes a long time for new versions of images to show up. Don't upload some half-arsed version, that just creates headaches when a proper version is uploaded. Use the proper assets instead of capturing images from the game. These can usually be found in the wiki channel on the discord (pinned) if you have the wiki contributor role. Otherwise DM me on discord - Blackwolfe

Assets with In-Game Names

Game Assets that have a name assigned in-game should use that name as the base filename. For example, the Bored Bean sprite would be uploaded as "Bored Bean.png", while the Old Hatchet sprite would be "Old Hatchet.png". Plurality should match the in-game representation (so Bleach Logs are plural whereas Toilet Roll is singular). Monster sprites should, however, always use a singular file name (e.g. Glublin.png instead of Glublins.png).

Other Files

Other files that do not have in-game names assigned should use a relevant name, for example the Fishing Beach background would be "Fishing Beach Background.png". Plurality/singularity is up to the uploader based on the content of the file.

Text

Text should be proofread for errors. Formatting/grammar changes should be marked as minor edits.

These are some of the things needing to be done on the wiki right now. Some things can be found in the "How to be helpful" section. Other things are detailed below.
