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]

  • 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 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)
  • Update Void Dragon Strike (Agni, Poseidon..) quest pages to reflect new split between Standard and Expert levels
  • Update damage/heal over time descriptions that still say X.99 seconds to X.9 seconds instead - this was changed in a past update. See Blessings of Destiny for an example. Applied to the Skill and Abilty categories
  • Make MediaWiki:Common.css readable and in a coherent format. Related elements should be labelled and placed in close proximity.

Medium Priority[edit source]

  • Rework Endeavors page as discussed in the Discord: --Boblers7 (talk) 06:58, 23 December 2019 (UTC)
    • store Endeavor Sets in the EndeavorSets Cargo Table (containing set names) and the EndeavorSetsRow Cargo Table (containing the endeavor rows). Data is stored by using the Template:EndeavorSet and Template:EndeavorSetRow templates on the data page Dragalia Lost Wiki/Endeavor Sets. This is similar to the approach for Secondary Events on Dragalia Lost Wiki/Secondary Events.
    • query Endeavor Sets from these tables, and use the Template:EndeavorSetsDisplay template to visually display the Endeavor Sets.
    • rework EndeavorSetDisplay to parse items according to a RewardType field that says what type of item it is (wyrmprint, weapon, material, sticker, etc). Quick-Item Templates (QIT) will not work for wyrmprints/weapons/stickers/epithets, and Override leads to a QINU error in the cargo table, so we need to use this approach.
      • mostly done, but we need to test this on stickers.
    • Changes have been implemented into the main Endeavors page. Next we need to implement this into Event pages so we can capture the Event Endeavors for display. -- Boblers7 (talk) 07:58, 27 December 2019 (UTC)
  • UI/UX Updates
  • Update Template:NPCPageHeader to use a #widget. Currently buttons are not optimally styled.
  • Add |Enemy= field and related query to Template:CampaignQuestHeader.
  • Add missing text and voice lines to Category:Adventurer Stories pages.
    • Create a category to flag Stories pages with missing text lines or missing voice lines.
    • Category:To-Do Adventurer Stories automatically flags Stories pages with any missing story titles or content.
    • add 1st Anniversary and Halloween special lines. These seem to be the same across variants of the same character (e.g. all versions of Cleo will say the same line).
    • add lines for using a weapon skill (unknown if line differs between attack or supportive skills)
  • Add missing text and voice lines to Category:Dragon Stories pages.
    • Include battle lines where applicable (Maritimus, Gilgamesh, humanoid dragons, etc)
  • High Dragon Trial Detailed Information (Thresholds, calculations, strategy, etc.)
  • Conditions article update
    • 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).
      • We have need of that more-elegant solution now. The EndeavorSet cargo table project isn't storing weapons and wyrmprints properly due to our manually calling the Icon template.
  • Update Template:Wyrmprint info card to have dynamic sizing.
  • Create Weapon Progression Guide, at least for crafting requirements.
