    Vandal173.72.136.245 (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Persistent vandalism (first edit was on January 1, then continued to vandalize today). —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:35, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

    "Edit war" on Night's Edge over the damage value, carried on by multiple IPs with misleading edit comments. I don't know what the proper value should be, but the shenanigans here are clearly out of line. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 13:37, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

    The damage from the source code is indeed 42. If the value is changed again, I would recommend putting in the edit summary that the editor should make sure they have removed all their damage boosting gear before updating the damage. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 14:13, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

    Extremegamer3210(talk57 contribslogsblock log) Not really a vandal. However he/she has been ignoring the invisible notes and edit summaries of multiple users and has added many current-gen params to exclusive templates, removing the exclusive2s. Any suggestions on how to proceed? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 01:38, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

    VandalPomanders (profile • talk • 4 contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Has created duplicate pages for the Necromantic Scroll, Paladin's Hammer, and Possessed Hatchet, but this is most likely just a new user's mistake. Not sure what course of action to take, but I have marked the duplicates for deletion. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:59, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

    Vandal172.31.16.69‎ (talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) Has made some good contributions, but vandalizes every so often. Have reverted about 5 edits so far, the most recent about a minute agoϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 22:48, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

    I mixed him up with another guy, this is most likely a hit-and-run. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 22:50, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
    We do have some vandalism. With the migration, some of the ip addresses have gotten messed up; we can't block any ips that begin with 172.31, as these appear to be shared ip addresses. Gamepedia staff will straighten it out after the migration is complete. Until then, all we can do is revert and undo. – Ferretwings (talk) 23:07, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

    VandalHmmmmmmm777 (profile • talk • 19 contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) I judge this to be a hit-and-run, but regardless of if it is, this is taking up a user space that could be used by new registering users. Mainspace edits of him/her included infobox value vandalism and “Kendall is Awesome!”. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:51, 29 October 2017 (UTC))

    This seems to just be a case of one-off vandalism by a younger user, as they show some helpful intent in their other two edits. I'll issue a warning if they continue, of course, but I don't think any action is needed at the moment. Either way, deleting accounts to make room for other uses isn't something that generally happens, and is definitely not something that non-Curse staff can do. – KM100 (talk) 22:27, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for the tips/info. I’ll keep an eye out —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 13:55, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

    It seems (looking back on this user's contribs) that this was a hit and run, is there any rules against deleting their account so that new users can take the name? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:54, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

    With only two edits within a short time, it's likely another hit and run vandal. A block shouldn't be needed unless they come back for more. – KM100 (talk) 04:19, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

    Blocked. Because I'm new to this, Im going to ask if those are the correct times for those kind of edits, i'm sure I've seen two weeks for other vandals… 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 23:52, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
    Not an admin myself but it's pretty much up to the one who takes action. Use your own judgement based on severity, frequency, and past behavior. Vandles potentially have the ability to make helpful contributions, but in repetitive cases with past bans it's not unheard of to exceed 1 month. Shadowsyllvet (talk) 23:57, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
    There's no hard rule. One week is fine for this. I usually reserve two-week initial blocks for vandals who attempt to be stealthy and get incorrect info to stick long-term -- by making questionable edits with edit summaries intended to look constructive. Those are more dangerous; and if it's a registered account, even more so, and I'll even do months as an initial block. The ones who are more clearly messing around, by posting immature language, gibberish, or other nonsense, are less of a threat. Check block logs and escalate the length if a vandal returns to vandalizing after the block expiration. In the end though, use your judgment. Equazcion (talk) 02:45, 10 Dec 2016 (UTC)

    done. Could you do me a favor and next time you make an entry on the admin board add an extra line break to the end. This time I read Equazcions response to your last edit and thought it was a response to this. TIA. Flisch42 (talk) 18:52, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

    VandalIjaopbjsadjbpoasdibjoisdj (profile • talk • 8 contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) I just blocked this user for 1 month without a warning, as the user just created 4 pages with no appropriate content and would probably continue. My question now is what is the appropriate time to block the user? Flisch42 (talk) 09:43, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

    Given the nature of the pages, which were grossly inappropriate, I extended the block to "indefinite". All the edits made by this user were inappropriate, with not a single good contribution. When Equazcion logs in, he may change the block again, but I have zero tolerance to what this user posted. – Ferretwings (talk) 02:44, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

    Vandal83.230.38.58 (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) I just plugged what this ip wrote into a translator, and it doesn't appear to be vandalism. It almost sounds like they want to give advise, but I'm not sure google translator is up to it. I'm thinking we should remove the block. Here is how it translated:
    Summary: I'm new so I do not know if there writes well
    Text: Very interesting approach. You might want to consider more deeply the things that surround us. You can draw very interesting conclusions, and at the same time find a second bottom of the case.

    Vandal110.141.7.97‎ (profile • talk • contribs (deleted) • logs • block log • block) This vandal has changed the "blade of grass" page 6 times today and I have undone all of them, not sure if he will continue or not. TOTORO01 (talk) 04:58, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

    This was actually User: They changed the page 6 times in quick succession and the final edit reverted things back to normal (TOTORO01 undid all the edits afterward but that wasn't actually necessary). In case this was a test or series of mistakes by a new user trying to get the hang of things, I'd rather wait and perhaps block if this happens again. Equazcion (talk) 05:27, 2 Oct 2016 (UTC)
    Okay, I just assumed since this person changed them back and then changed them to random numbers again that is was a troll, I'll keep an eye out to see if this does happen again, thanks! TOTORO01 (talk) 05:32, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

    Other Issues[edit source]

    NPC page format[edit source]

    I'd like to arrange the NPC pages so they all follow the same format. (btw, your "Standard sections" don't reflect the same order shown in either the Enemy page or Item page formats.) The NPC pages don't currently seem to follow a specific format. I suggest keeping all the info the player is more likely to need near the top, and the more trivial information near the bottom. Also, should each word in the section headers be capitalized?

    I suggest section headers in this order:

    Items Sold (or other NPC help)
    Quest Rewards
    See Also

    (I'm volunteering myself for all the re-arranging involved, I just need a set format to follow) --Ferretwings (talk) 22:12, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

    I think this is more or less the order most NPC pages follow. It might be easier if you pointed out an example NPC page and let us know how you'd like to change it. As for section headers, no, they shouldn't have all words capitalized; they aren't proper names and aren't generally handled that way here. Equazcion (talk) 02:34, 3 Mar 2016 (UTC)
    I realize it's probably just my OCD kicking in, but it drives me nuts that the NPC pages don't all order their sections the same way. Just about every single NPC page follows a slightly different format.
    For instance, the section headings on the Stylist page are ordered:
    Current order
    • Items
    • Quotes
    • Names
    • Notes
    • Trivia
    • History
    I would change to
    • Items
    • Notes
    • Names
    • Quotes
    • Trivia
    • History
    And the section headings on the Nurse page are ordered:
    Current order
    • Names
    • Notes
    • Trivia
    • Quotes
    • Achievement
    • History
    I would change to
    • Notes
    • Achievement(s)
    • Names
    • Quotes
    • Trivia
    • History
    --Ferretwings (talk) 04:39, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
    You're right, names and quotes should be further down. The few NPC pages I checked randomly didn't have that issue. You can feel free to go ahead and re-order them. Equazcion (talk) 04:59, 3 Mar 2016 (UTC)

    Level elevation=Surface level=0 feet?[edit source]

    I've been seeing some phrases that are probably all identical: "Level elevation", "Surface level" and "0 feet".
    For players who have not yet acquired the Depth Meter, "level elevation" would be a confusing term. I find "surface level" a confusing term, when used to explain the Depth Meter, however it probably shouldn't have been used in that way, and it's an easy fix.
    If they all mean the same, I'll add it to the Layers page (since that is where "Depth" redirects), or perhaps the Depth Meter page may make more sense. A simple definition of Level elevation: "Depth of 0 feet, also known as 'surface level'(?), which is displayed as 'level' by the Depth Meter, GPS, PDA, and Cell Phone." At least those who search the term, can find the definition. --Ferretwings (talk) 18:40, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

    You can clarify that on either or both pages, sure. Although "Surface" is often used to describe the entire Surface layer, from zero up to Space, so I'm not sure if that should be included. If "Surface level" is used in articles to describe zero depth, that should probably be changed. Equazcion (talk) 13:28, 11 Mar 2016 (UTC)

    Suspicious Looking Skull: Can it be crafted with Titanium Bars?[edit source]

    A couple of editors have tried to insert a recipe for crafting the Suspicious Looking Skull using Titanium Bars, but their edits are eventually reverted. Can we get confirmation? Perhaps we should discuss it on the Talk page, rather than just reverting the edits. --Ferretwings (talk) 13:32, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

    Apparently the 1.2.4 console/mobile updates brought the ability to craft it using Titanium [1]. Equazcion (talk) 13:44, 11 Mar 2016 (UTC)

    Reducing enemy spawn rates[edit source]

    There are 3 buffs that reduce enemy spawn rates. Do we have any data on them? This is what is listed in the wiki:

    Item Buff Enemy spawn reduction
    Sunflower.png Sunflower Happy!.png Happy! -
    Peace Candle.png Peace Candle Desktop VersionConsole Version Peace Candle (buff).png Peace Candle (buff) -
    Calming Potion.png Calming Potion Calm.png Calm 17%

    If the Water Candle and Peace Candle cancel each other out, does that mean their rate of increase and decrease are the same? 33%?

    Template:Crafts first sub row[edit source]

    The Alchemy Table in "Template:Crafts first sub row" needs a pc icon, since it was only introduced in –Ferretwings (talk) 18:33, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

    I made a short-lived attempt to do this but my attempts broke the display in various ways. I don't have the time I once did to sandbox test and figure this out but if anyone comes up with working code feel free to post it. {{crafting recipe}} could also use it. Equazcion (talk) 19:18, 22 Mar 2016 (UTC)
    Got it done now. Equazcion (talk) 23:33, 23 Mar 2016 (UTC)

    Spectral armor recipes[edit source]

    The Spectral armor page has been edited so often, I think the numbers may be wrong.

    Console/Mobile changed the number of souls required for Titan armor when they updated to the PC 1.2.2, and I'm wondering if they changed the recipes for Spectral armor as well. I see they changed the recipes for Dragon armor... I'll need to go edit the recipes I recently added.

    Do any of the admins have access to the Console/Mobile version? –Ferretwings (talk) 21:21, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

    I have the mobile version, but I don't play it and I'm nowhere near being able to check Hardmode recipes. These things are much more difficult to verify in console/mobile since the developer of those doesn't let us access their source code. The forum is probably the best place to request that info from players. Equazcion (talk) 21:33, 25 Mar 2016 (UTC)
    I found it on the Console Version History page. I guess I should have checked there first. To answer my own question... Yes, all three armor recipes were reduced, and the armors got new sprites in the same Console 1.02 update. I'll fix the recipes. –Ferretwings (talk) 04:26, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

    Cheating[edit source]

    I'm assuming the wiki doesn't support cheating, and I should just undo this edit? --Ferretwings (talk) 05:08, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

    Then I'm assuming we should chuck out the entire Cheating section on the page Guide:Making Money? LordofEditing (talk) 01:49, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
    Actually, user-made guides follow different rules than the main wiki. After I first asked the question, I did some research into the history of that guide, and also looked through the noticeboard archives. We wouldn't allow the content on the main wiki pages because it isn't part of normal gameplay. Although, I'm not sure why we allowed the Map viewers page and Inventory editors page in the main wiki, I'll need to check with an admin who's been around longer than I have. – Ferretwings (talk) 03:36, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
    We keep glitch exploits off the main pages, since they shift focus away from documenting the official gameplay element being described (plus they're more difficult to verify). Inventory editors and map viewers tend to be respected software at the official forum, thought of more as testing tools than "cheats", which I suppose is why they haven't been confined to Guide pages. They could probably go in either page space. Equazcion (talk) 03:59, 30 Aug 2016 (UTC)

    Minor changes to main page needed[edit source]

    The main page is missing info regarding the availability of the Wii U release of the game.

    Also another minor tweak is that the store icon for the PlayStation version is out of date.

    The new store logo is PlayStation Network Store icon.png

    Sony Entertainment Network is no longer used --Kmg90 (talk) 20:10, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

    I'll handle it. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. --Ferretwings (talk) 20:40, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
    Done :) --Ferretwings (talk) 07:06, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

    Unable to edit one of the Pirate's quotes[edit source]

    I am attempting to encase the Pirate's quotes in quotation marks to follow the style set by the other NPC pages. I have added them successfully to all quotes except the one concerning Moby Dick, it blocks me from saving changes when I edit that line. Could someone with the permissions to do so please add the missing quotation marks? Robbyo4 (talk) 15:25, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

    File-upload spam[edit source]

    We've experienced quite a bit of file-upload spam. Is there a way we can limit file uploads to users who's accounts are more than a day old? – Ferretwings (talk) 19:33, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

    I have edited one of the abuse filters which should prevent future vandalism of whatever organization was doing this. Other than that I would prefer not to block new users from uploading files, as this is done quite frequently for valid purposes. --0icke0 (talk) 08:47, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

    Suspicious account[edit source]

    An account was recently created UserProfile:ControllerModz that appears to be for commercial purposes... but the user hasn't actually done anything yet. Do we wait for them to cross the line? Or are we proactive? – Ferretwings (talk) 23:34, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

    Blocked him. This is not a place to advertise a businesses, even on your own user page. --0icke0 (talk) 08:15, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

    Console notice(s)[edit source]

    With the fact that terraria is on the console version and with the split of legacy from current consoles will there be a way to identify what items are available or not? IE. When 1.3 comes to console the 360 version will not be seeing these things. The Xbox One will be but when stuff like getting Logic Gates available to players on console and then the players who have the 360 version will see that and think they have it and end up finding out its not. DragoHanter (talk) 17:11, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

    I got an idea a while back to create a header similar to the "Desktop-Only" type we have now, which will list the platforms for which an item (or event) is not available. For example, on the Dye page, it might say in bold letters "Not available in the DS3 version." We will definitely come up with something, as there are platforms that may exclude certain items. – Ferretwings (talk) 18:16, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
    I'd say have it setup in a way that adds to the item box. Legacy console: yes/no Desktop: yes/no Mobile: yes/no It would just add a few lines to the box just like how weapons have their data stats listed. Unless its not an item but a feature or event like console's christmas theme events then in that case It would just be a header on the page saying *console's only / Some items may not apply to legacy console's* and so on. Just an idea off the top of my head. DragoHanter (talk) 02:16, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

    Global AF - New user adding link at end or in heading[edit source]

    I cannot even write the issue here without triggering the filter..... --Grinapo (talk) 16:34, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

    Seems that I can add a section, if it does not contain any link whatsoever, but I cannot update a page with normal text. Anyway, wanted to update the terraria server to the newest version but the filter obviously rejetced the update as it have contained a link. To the download. :-) --Grinapo (talk) 16:35, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

    I've updated the page. Sorry about the filter, its a global filter, so we as admins can't even change it, but those filters are needed to prevent vandalism. --0icke0 (talk) 22:59, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

    This filter is dumb[edit source]

    When I was editing the Stardust armor page, my changes were constantly being rejected for no reason whatsoever. It wouldn't allow me to link to an external wiki, and most curiously yet frustratingly of all, wouldn't allow me to say certain words, such as "anime", "manga", "Jojo", and "bizarre". I put in symbols exactly identical to certain letters to bypass the filter, but that doesn't change the fact that this is still an issue. Here's a picture of the error I kept getting: http://i.imgur.com/yK48exL.png (Please don't question why I have Yandere Simulator wiki on an open tab.) Serensetti (talk) 22:03, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

    It seems you've solved your own problem just now. There are no filters of this nature, pretty sure the only filter we have (if any) is a profanity filter. I'm pretty sure this problem was caused by trying to put in a link to an external website, which could be malicious. TOTORO01 (talk) 22:11, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
    If you look at the post above this, it talks about a global filter preventing links. TOTORO01 (talk) 22:16, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
    I just checked the filter settings. We don't allow any reference to Jojo or that manga on the Stardust armor page. – Ferretwings (talk) 22:19, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
    Some pages have their own specific filters to prevent certain trivia items from being posted. See trivia rules. People tend to note when something in the game looks or sounds like something they saw somewhere else, and assume some intended connection. Jojo was apparently a frequent posting on the Stardust page, even though there's probably little evidence tying it to the game other than some possibly incidental similarities, so it got a filter.

    Revive the outdated Android inventory editing page[edit source]

    I recently found a method to modify values in the latest 1.2.12785 version, I made a video as a proof of concept but can't post the link. Not being able to place the link ANYWHERE make it difficult for someone to use the video as a guide to revive the page... DVslp5LtD0 <---that's the video's unique URL extension the site is that popular one for streaming that starts with "you" since I apparently cant say its name either Also, I am unable to post comments or replies on anyone's talk page including my own. The message says I haven't confirmed my email but I've had this curse account for two years. Shadowsyllvet (talk) 12:09, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

    I was able to embed the youtube video on the existing page. Try the same embed code next time, and avoid creating new pages with external links, as those tend to trigger spam filters. External links are also touchy when you're a "new" user, and can easily trigger spam filters.
    I changed the link above and below to reflect the pages new location, this was the last page leading to that old redirect. Shadowsyllvet (talk) 10:59, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
    I'm not familiar with the error you're receiving when attempting to post to people's talk pages. You might want to check out http://support.gamepedia.com/ and contact Curse directly about that. You could also try double-checking your email address in your Preferences; perhaps remove and re-add your email address, and see if that works. Equazcion (talk) 14:31, 18 Nov 2016 (UTC)

    In regards to the email confirmation issue, it seems there is a delay when logging in for the first time on a new device. The problem resolved itself on my PC but when I logged in on mobile I had the same issue. I let the mobile sit for a few hours and it resolved as well.
    In regards to not being able to post links, Thank you for embedding that for me. I have edited This Page to better suit the video placement. If someone with more skill than I have wants to do change it for the better and\or wants to DO the tutorial I would be happy to help and provide HQ screenshots to help flesh out the guide. Also, the title needs to be fixed and the deleted discussion page needs to be undeleted so we can discuss it there. Shadowsyllvet (talk) 12:21, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

    What does purge do?[edit source]

    The Betsy.png is only partially updated. When you go to the image file, it still displays the old image.

    I have an option on the file page, which I don't know would help. "Click to purge the server cache for the current wiki page" What does this do? Could it help? – Ferretwings (talk) 20:21, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

    See Help:Cache. Purge rebuilds a page completely, updating any templates that may have changed, and ignoring the server cache. Images on Gamepedia, however, are on a separate cache system that isn't affected by Purge, and can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to update. When it comes to images, all you really do is wait, unfortunately. Equazcion (talk) 22:01, 21 Nov 2016 (UTC)

    Interwiki[edit source]

    I think it might be a good idea to add some new entries to the Special:Interwiki table. Notably, a number of crossover items by the 1.3.4 update refer to the Dungeon Defenders 2 Wiki, which could get a dd2 interwiki prefix for example. --SorryThatUsernameIsAlreadyTaken (talk) 11:51, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

    I'm not sure how to do that, or if anyone would notice it, when the interwiki list is generally just for translations. Might be better and simpler to just post external links to the DD2 wiki under a "see also" heading. Equazcion (talk) 18:14, 2 Dec 2016 (UTC)
    I created {{dd2 link}} to facilitate this. Currently it produces a simple external link to be placed under "See also." If anyone has ideas about an alternate format or placement feel free to suggest. Equazcion (talk) 08:11, 5 Dec 2016 (UTC)

    Login problem on mobile[edit source]

    I've already tried deleting cookies but it doesn't help. Has anyone ever got this problem?

    I've never seen that message myself. You may want to check/contact http://support.gamepedia.com. Equazcion (talk) 18:16, 2 Dec 2016 (UTC)
    I possibly believe it is due to your PC also being active at the same time, so Gamepedia registers you as a 'unwanted user' and prevents you from logging in. I've personally never had that problem on mobile, though it is intriguing. LordofEditing =(Talk)= 20:06, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
    I've dealt with this problem with Safari on mobile- not entirely sure what causes it, but what I did to circumvent it was download Puffin (mobile web browser) and login from there. I use Desktop view for convenience, but I think it might work if you use the mobile view as well. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 20:22, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

    Question about translated pages[edit source]

    How do translated wiki pages work? I speak many languages including spanish so I was looking at the spanish section of the wiki and found this page: https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Bone/es . It is missing a file that is linked as Book/es.png. This file exists both as book.png and as libro.png. Therefore my questions:

    • Are translated pages supposed to have their own images with a new title (libro) or to use the same image as the english wiki (book) to save space or use variants like book/es?
    • Should their articles be named book/es or libro? The missing image problem is created from a link to the item's page for the book named book/es that is looking for the item of the same name.

    --Leonord cursetalk」 17:52, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

    The translation subpage system is a little wonky. I haven't had to deal with them in a while, as most of the ones with serious participation have already been made into their own separate language wikis. Duplicate images are frowned upon, so from what I remember, the major ones had created their own versions of crafting templates etc to deal with this -- where, for example, {{crafting recipe/es}} would have extra fields for translated names, but the internal links still automatically targeted the English names with /es tacked on, while still using the regular English images.
    See Block/cz for example -- I think that's the only translation project that still exists as English subpages and has a decent template system in place. I spent a lot of time helping to develop those Czech templates myself. I don't have the time to do that again these days, however you might have a relatively easier time copying the Czech ones and tweaking them for another language. Equazcion (talk) 22:16, 12 Dec 2016 (UTC)

    Change order of List of Weapons?[edit source]

    As a user, I look at the List of weapons page to compare my (prospective) weapon with other weapons of that type. I find my weapon using my browser's Search mechanism (Ctrl-F on Chrome). I have never scrolled through the alphabetic list of weapons to find my weapon.

    I always first sort the table on damage-per-second (DPS), then on Type. Then I find my weapon. The table sorted that way lets me compare my weapon with other (prospective) weapons of the same type, based on its most significant attribute—damage-per-second.

    May I change the List of weapons page so weapons are first grouped by Type, then sorted in ascending order by DPS? (I realize this is a large task, but am willing to do it.) DavidForthoffer (talk) 19:41, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

    If the list could be sorted automatically when it is first loaded, that would be great. Otherwise, I'm concerned that organizing the list by weapon type may make it difficult to maintain. Anybody wishing to add to the list would need to first find the proper grouping to add the weapon to. Also, the weapon types are not "official", they are simply a means for grouping and comparing "like" weapons, making the "type" somewhat subjective. Some editors are simply adding weapons to the bottom of the list, and not bothering to place them in the sorted order, so I'd rather not add another complexity for editors wishing to add weapons to the list. I do like your idea, I'm just not sure the groupings could be maintained over time.
    I have begun developing a dpl to create the list, but the dpl became quite difficult to code, and I'm now taking a break from it. I think I'll begin with a basic dpl, and add to it over time. – Ferretwings (talk) 23:19, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
    Good points. Sure, editors could add a weapon by adding it in some random place, then sorting by DPS, then sorting by type, then moving the definition to its correct place. But it's difficult enough already to accurately maintain. Requiring even a simple procedure to update the list is bound to have errors creep in. DavidForthoffer (talk) 07:38, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

    Historical comments should go in History section, right?[edit source]

    Page Guide:Chlorophyte Ore Farming has comments within its Spread Mechanics section talking about Pre-1.3 rules and 1.3 rules. Even though this is a Guide page, it still seems appropriate to me to put the pre-1.3 rules in a (new) section titled 'History' and take out explicit references to "1.3". Should that be done? DavidForthoffer (talk) 11:35, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

    They can be removed. Old stuff is retained in the page's wiki history automatically. Equazcion (talk) 11:44, 26 Dec 2016 (UTC)
    I would mark all pre-1.3 info with the Console Version Mobile only.png since it still pertains to them. – Ferretwings (talk) 15:18, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
    Yeah, my bad. If it applies to those it should stay, of course, marked with appropriate icons. Equazcion (talk) 15:23, 26 Dec 2016 (UTC)

    Unable to add paragraph to Stardust Armor[edit source]

    I am trying to add trivia to this page, specifically; "The Stardust Armor is a reference to the manga Jojo's Bizarre Adventure; in the third part, Stardust Crusaders, the cast members possess spiritual entities known as "stands," which function similarly to the Stardust Guardian. Specifically, it finds basis in the protagonist's stand, Star Platinum, with which it shares a similar appearance and protective nature towards its user." But it keeps giving me this error message: "This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Specific article: Stardust Armor"

    The reason this is happening is because via the first discussion here, and multiple edits made by others, it was decided that Stardust armor is not a reference to Jojo's Bizzare Adventure.12345
    Due to this, a filter was applied to the page to prevent the conflict caused by these edits to continue, which is what you are experiencing. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 13:42, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

    Problem uploading images.[edit source]

    Hi, Im having some problems uploading/updating images. I was uploading these two to use in an upcoming edit:

    https://terraria.gamepedia.com/File:Vita_icon.png https://terraria.gamepedia.com/File:Ps_icon.png

    I forgot to remove the background so then I tried to "Upload a new version of this file" but the "current" image is always the one with the white background. "revert" did not help either. I'μ not sure if I'm doing somethign wrong or Curse servers are the problem because I was getting gateway errors. I just want to keep the ones without background. --Leonord cursetalk」 14:08, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

    There do seem to be some server issues this morning, but the image thing is separate. Images at Gamepedia operate on a separate cache system that takes a while to update when uploading new versions. Usually 10-15 minutes or so, but I've seen it take hours or even days. I haven't found any real way around this; but it only occurs when uploading new versions of images, so if you're anxious to work on something and you need the updated images, you can upload them as new images to different filenames, and those should display immediately.

    History merging[edit source]

    I wanted to merge the history of some pages.

    After running into a technical issue, I decided to make a list of the pages I was comparing, to see what exactly should be merged.

    Here is a summary of what I found:

    Jungle armor (history page)

    • May 18, 2011 Page creation (page created as Cobalt Armor)
    • The armor was re-named and re-sprited, but retained the old stats, so the page was moved to Jungle armor.
    • This history page appears complete.

    Ancient Cobalt armor (history page)

    • No history listed prior to Oct 6, 2013
    • Oct 3, 2013 Page creation (found at Ancient Cobalt Armor - histories should be merged).

    Cobalt armor (history page)

    • This is a new hardmode armor with a "previously used" name. It shares no stats with its old namesake.
    • Oct 6, 2013 Page move from Cobalt Armor (this is the earliest entry - need to move some history over from Cobalt Armor beginning at Dec 1, 2011, when the hardmode armor was introduced).

    Jungle Armor history page

    • Page move.

    Ancient Cobalt Armor history page

    • Contains history from Oct 3 - Oct 8, 2013 (needs to be merged with Ancient Cobalt armor).

    Cobalt Armor history page

    • The earlier edits listed on the history page are aimed at creating an "old game content" page.
    • Dec 1, 2011 and later refer to the hardmode Cobalt armor (needs to be merged with Cobalt armor).

    Proposed change to Main page[edit source]

    When console first announced it would update to 1.3, I began working on the Main page, dividing the consoles. You can see my work here: Terraria Wiki/sandbox. The change would affect the boxes on the right side, and I've displayed both versions side-by-side. If it looks good, I'd like to copy it over to the Main page (just the right-side boxes)... but perhaps I should wait until console's 1.3 is actually released? – Ferretwings (talk) 01:34, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

    I'm not sure I understand these groupings and how they relate to the 1.3 release. Could you clarify? It does look nice though, good job there. Equazcion (talk) 02:04, 30 Sep 2017 (UTC)
    Only Xbox One and PS4 will receive the 1.3 update, the other consoles will not. That is why I propose dividing the consoles into 2 groups. I wasn't sure where to put 3DS, so I left it in the consoles section. – Ferretwings (talk) 03:05, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
    That makes sense then. I don't see any reason it can't be done now. Equazcion (talk) 16:19, 30 Sep 2017 (UTC)

    Crafting section format[edit source]

    Before I get into an edit war, I need some opinions, because both editors involved have valid arguments. I worked with the Crafting section on the Fallen Star page to shorten it, and make it easy to understand. An editor recently divided it up between the different platforms, which is done quite often on the wiki. I feel dividing it up makes it more difficult to compare recipes between platforms (as an editor). I suppose as a wiki user, it would be more convenient to have the recipes grouped by platform. Any thoughts? Should I post this to the Community board for a vote? – Ferretwings (talk) 20:43, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

    It's not only more convenient for the wiki editors, but for readers as well. Consider that most players are playing on a single platform, so having "their" recipes grouped together is much more convenient. Comparing recipes between platforms is a niche situation. Thus, I'd advise sticking with the current norm. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 01:40, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

    History template[edit source]

    Back in June 2015, it was suggested to separate the Desktop, Console, and Mobile history on item pages. Better late then never, lol! AwsomeDiamonds revisited the idea (with gusto :)), and I came up with a new History template. Take a peek at the Template:History/sandbox, and Terraria Wiki:Sandbox where you can test it. For pages not using the version parameter, the information will display the same as before. I plan on implementing the template by the end of the week, so if you have any questions or concerns, please speak up! :) – Ferretwings (talk) 03:41, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

    Rollback Loophole?[edit source]

    I got a bit concerned after reading the Help:Rollback page (not because of the rollback feature itself, read on). I saw that it gives the ability to revert multiple edits by an IP or users which is awesome, except I think people without rollback can still do this by

    1. Go to the history subpage
    2. Check the left circle of the edit before the first edit you want to revert
    3. Check the right circle of the last edit you want to revert
    4. Click the button to see the difference between edits
    5. Click the undo button
    6. Done.

    Is this a loophole which needs to be addressed, or is this intended and rollback has additional features? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 21:42, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

    The Rollback tool isn't necessarily meant to be stronger than default editing, it's supposed to be faster. Going into a page's history and saving an older revision is a rather convoluted process that one-off vandals aren't going to know how to do -- and even if they do know how to do it, it's slower and less damaging than simply vandalizing the page. In contrast, rollback undoes multiple edits with a single click, making it faster and more dangerous in the wrong hands, hence why it's only given to those with permission. – KM100 (talk) 22:08, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
    Now that I think about it, a vandal without a rollback feature wouldn’t get too far undoing multiple edits (like you mentioned), I see why they made the feature separate from normal undoing now. Thanks for your fast response! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 22:12, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
    Oh, and one more thing, there’s a lot of unused (I made sure to check the other language wikis) files with old sprites in the candidates for deletion), are these being kept for project reasons? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 22:12, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
    I don't believe they're being used for anything. However, deleted files can't be restored, so they need a bit more consideration than a normal page before being deleted. As a result, deletion-requested images tend to stick around for a bit until an admin gets around to deciding whether or not they should be kept. – KM100 (talk) 22:41, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

    Protection of File[edit source]

    Shouldn't File:Green Slime Front.png be protected since it is used on the front page? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:12, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

    User:4e696e6a6f795844 Protected it. Thank you! – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 03:00, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

    List of Administrators[edit source]

    I was looking at the List of Admins and noticed that User:Gerzein hasn't made an edit in about a year. Also, User:Flisch42 hasn't made an edit in 7 months. Should they be moved to the inactive section? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:10, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

    Yes; thanks for pointing that out. – Ferretwings (talk) 18:52, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

    Wiki page formatting is broken[edit source]

    Most pages have no top bar, formatting, etc, though some of the links from the sidebare are present as text. This page has a formatted sidebar, but no background. Clearly something dire has happened to the default page formatting. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 03:02, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

    Holy moly, I see it. I'll try to figure out what's going on.– Ferretwings (talk) 15:59, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
    Fixed. Thank you Alianin :) – Ferretwings (talk) 17:05, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
    Thank you! Out of curiosity, what happened? --MentalMouse42 (talk) 22:21, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

    Page-save errors are back....[edit source]

    Trying to edit "Guide:Making Money" gets a "Unknown error, HTTP status 500" on save. Trying to review my changes twiddles for a bit, then gets an undersized box with no diffs. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 01:43, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

    I'm getting errors as well, it's quite frustrating. They said they are working on it. They're migrating some wikis, and I'm guessing it's slowing down all the gamepedia wikis. I've gotten 500, 504, 525, and "website offline" errors. – Ferretwings (talk) 02:25, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

    Getting the same (that is, "500 Internal Server Error") on trying to save Wall of Flesh. Particularly annoying since it's just been vandalized with misinformation. (ETA: Deadly Sphere too.) --MentalMouse42 (talk) 23:17, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

    Fixed now, at least I managed to save both pages. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 01:30, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

    "Guide:Making Money" is erroring on save again. "Error loading data from server: Could not connect to the server. Would you like to retry? "OK" repeats, "Cancel" goes to source-editing mode. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 01:41, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

    Desktop Version Template[edit source]

    In the {{desktop version}} template, it uses the {{desktop icon}} template. This is deprecated and needs to be changed to {{desktop icon}}. However, the template is protected against editing except to administrators. Could one of you please fix this? Thank you. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 22:36, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

    Changed. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 00:27, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
    Thank you! That was a very quick response. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 00:53, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

    Urgent script error fix needed[edit source]

    When I was using {{see also}}, I stumbled across an error:

    It appears that the “Labelled list hatnote” module was removed or corrupted. Just sending this as a heads up for coders. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 18:58, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

    Edit: it appears User:Pcj fixed it. Thanks for looking into it guys! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 20:09, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

    {{Npc infobox}}[edit source]

    To fix version errors (e.g. console/mobile variant rather than console/mobile/3ds variant) and have it automatically update as versions receive 1.3, would anyone be able to make “variant = yes” fill out versions as “{{eversions|code=y|replace=-}}? Thanks for looking into it! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 04:46, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

    Dire thumbnail errors[edit source]

    Multiple pages are showing "Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination" instead of banner or table icons. Seen offhand on the Community Noticeboard "Forums Page" Section, and the "Sextant" page both in the "desktop only" banner and the crafting recipes. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 21:05, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

    A few minutes later, the icons are back. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 21:12, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

    Dragon, Titan, and Spectral armor pages[edit source]

    Is an admin able to add Item IDs (at Part 7) for these, since it’s protected? (Find them at the page) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 23:19, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

    I can edit them just fine, I am not blocked by any protection. Also, we do not know what their Item Ids are as we do not have the source code for Console, Mobile, or 3DS. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 23:32, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
    Sorry, didn’t clarify I meant that their /Stats pages were protected (where the IDs go) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:29, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
    Only the Dragon armor's stat page was protected. I've edited it to be more consistent with the other two pages. – KM100 (talk) 22:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

    Terra Blade/Stats[edit source]

    This page needs its console-mobile icon to be converted to {{eicons||invert=y}} and its desktop icon to {{eicons|}}. Are there any admins who can do this? Thanks for your help! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 21:38, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

    Got it taken care of, thanks. – KM100 (talk) 22:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks KM100! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:52, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
    Sorry to bother you again so quickly, but I made an edit to the Titan armor page and Spectral armor page; the IDs were misinterpereted, which wasn’t your fault in any way, it’s just that the Item IDs page is a little confusing. And finally, the Terra Blade/Stats page has categories, is this intentional? Thanks again! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:57, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
    The categories for the Terra Blade show on it's stats page because the infobox adds them - this is fine.
    When the exclusive armor was first introduced, the ids given them by the devs were sequential beginning with #1867 (the Dragon Mask). Unfortunately, when mobile finally received the Christmas update (1.2.11212), the numbers needed to be re-assigned (Candy Cane has id #1867), so all the exclusives got re-numbered beginning with #5001. The devs were hoping desktop never went above id #5000. I am guessing at the timing of the re-numbering, but it does seem logical that they didn't renumber the items until they had to. I suppose we should add the re-numbering to the history section of those exclusives. – Ferretwings (talk) 06:42, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
    I could be wrong. It seemed logical, but looking at the list is very confusing. – Ferretwings (talk) 06:49, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

    Chaos Elemental and impending edit war[edit source]

    If the IP undoes my most recent edit at the Chaos Elemental page, are there any suggestions on how to proceed? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 12:47, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

    I've been watching them warily myself, as they had multiple low-value edits, even before trying to edit-war with a named regular. That said, the IP comes off as just a kid who doesn't quite "get the scene". So, I wouldn't want be be too harsh. Do the admins here think warnings on an IP page are worthwhile? Failing that... If I was an admin here (which I'm not), I might give a short ban to the IP (say 1-3 days) just to get their attention. If possible, without "account creation disabled", as them getting a name would be a step forward into the community. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 14:15, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
    For use of Admins in case of any edit wars, I created {{Dispute}}. It should prove useful by showing that neither side is being endorsed and so encouragement can be given to reach a consensus. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:28, 23 December 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for creating that, looks great! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 17:27, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
    Many editors have added similar trivia to the various Elemental pages, and it always gets reverted - simply saying "[this] is not an element" isn't exactly noteworthy :). Hopefully my trivia rewrite will appease all those editors. – Ferretwings (talk) 05:53, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

    User rights change request[edit source]

    Reedembot(talk contribslogsblock log) <-- requesting User rights to Bot rights (congrats User:ReedemtheD3ad on getting a bot!) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:11, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

    I already requested this change to Equazcion as he only Gamepedia Staff members can change user rights. Thanks. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 00:15, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
    Thanks for requesting ahead of time, I know many other bots which got requested way later in their services than this one... —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 15:26, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

    Since these are pretty complex, important templates/pages, can they be protected? (below)
