Creating a Page[edit | edit source]

Creating a page can be done through the above input box or by searching for a non-existent page using the search bar on the top right.

If the page already exists, you'll be redirected to it instead.

Editing Guidelines[edit | edit source]

  • Use proper grammar and spelling
    • Stick to American English, in order to be consistent with the game.
  • Don't vandalize pages
  • Avoid editorializing -- stick to facts
  • Use Quick Icon Templates when possible, in order to stay consistent with the rest of the wiki.

Style Guidelines[edit | edit source]

  • When indicating an amount of currency in a chart, use the Quick Icon Template (icon only) followed by a number:
    • Icon Diamantium.png 40
    • Icon Wyrmite.png 40
    • Icon Resource Mana.png 40
    • Icon Resource Eldwater.png 40
      • Additionally, values presented like this should be left-aligned, in order to align the icons.
  • When indicating an amount of materials in a chart, use the Quick Icon Template (text + icon) followed by a number:
  • When referring to a quantity of currency, materials, etc. within a sentence, use the Quick Icon Template (text + icon), with the number preceding it:
    • It will cost you 40 Icon Diamantium.png Diamantium to perform this action.
  • When indicating a number which is one thousand or greater, include the proper comma every third non-decimal digit:
    • 1,000
    • 1,500
    • 10,000
    • 27,500
    • If making a template that pulls from Cargo Tables, the magic word {{formatnum:}} can help parse values, e.g. {{formatnum:123456789.99}} produces 123,456,789.99.

Acceptable Date Formats[edit | edit source]

  • Most templates utilize the magic words {{#time:F d, Y h:i:s A e|}} and {{#time:F d, Y|}} and are thus able to accept a variety of formats which are parsed and stored internally as UTC.
  • The following are accepted: backslashes (2019/1/1), dashes (2019-1-1), most manner of timezones (+9, +9 hours. +0930, JST, GMT +9) and commas in the correct spacing (November 20th, 2019).
  • The following are not accepted and will throw errors: any dots as they cause non integer values, including dot spacing (2019.1.1) and specifying timezones in non integer (+9.5).
  • If no timezone is specified e.g. October 04, 2018 06:00, the syntax automatically assumes UTC.

To-do List[edit | edit source]

High Priority[edit source]

  • Discuss whether we should switch to referencing skills by ID instead of Name in Adventurer, Dragon and Weapon templates.
  • Tutorial pages for wiki contributors.; start with Contributor's Guide. Add a section that describes in which categories each image usually found in a datamine belongs to, with examples.
  • Ensure enemy data from 2019-09-19 (High Zodiark) onward has been uploaded. Enemy Data should be seperated by date and enemy family for incorporated into Version Changelog.
  • Edit event template (and image file naming pattern) such that different runs of the same raid event can have different "event prologue" images. Kindness & Captivity's images on the wiki refer to the wyrmprint's bane ability, which is not applicable as of the Nov 2019 rerun. The Nov run's in-game images also mention raid boosts now, but the wiki's do not. This change is likely going to be needed if/when more raid reruns with raid boosts come in the future.
    • Currently image galleries have been moved from the specific event run page to the event overview page. This to preserve image history and avoid having to change names to the images from all the previous events. (User:Caledor92)
  • Edit Template:StoryEventCurrencyData to not display story unlock costs, as Stirring Shadows/October 2019 did not follow the cost pattern set by Valentine's Confections. Afterwards, re-add the story unlock costs to Valentine's Confections in some other way.
  • Write EventType summary pages for Story Event and Defensive Battle and describe the mechanics of the event. A changelog section should be kept to keep track of changes over the various iterations and a cargo query to display the events of that type we've had. See Raid Event and Facility Event for examples.

  • Update Template:Event to display up to 6 exclusive Wyrmprints and 8 exclusive Weapons, due to Mega Man event. Template:Event has been updated.
    • Update all cargoqueries utilizing ExclusiveWyrmprint and ExclusiveWeapon to properly handle the list. Canim44 (talk) 00:00, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
    • Modify Module:ListParser with preferred tooltip display. Canim44 (talk) 00:00, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Medium Priority[edit source]

** Add missing conditions (for example, Summer Verica's Moment of Passion buff)

    • Update the condition tolerance mechanics (+20% tolerance per inflict has been changed to +10% or +5% depending on condition)
  • Upload missing Login Bonus banners, and apply them to appropriate sections in the Login Bonus archive.
  • For skills, abilities, weapons, and dragons that list patch changes in their |Notes= section, link to the appropriate Version Changelog page for that patch.
  • Update Template:EndeavorRow to correctly display Weapon, Wyrmprint, and Sticker rewards. Workarounds for Weapons/Wyrmprints exist currently, but end up displaying extraneous brackets.
    • Similarly, update Template:Icon to display Stickers, so it can be used in Treasure Trade tables
    • How to fix the extraneous brackets: need to add the reward with the parameter Override=. A more elegant solution is to add a Type parameter to the template which calls the icon template with that parameter instead (weapon, wyrmprint ecc).
  • Update Template:Wyrmprint info card to have dynamic sizing.
