    Easter egg page[edit source]

    I just noticed that Terraria wiki doesn't yet have a page that lists Easter Eggs found in Terraria. Because i dont have a Gamepedia account, i cant create that page, but if sombody would create that page, i would be more than happy to add info to it. However, if you think that kind of page would be unnecessary to add, you dont need to add it.

    Desktop Only/Pc only Templates[edit source]

    I just noticed that there are two templates that are functionally identical, but are on separate pages, anyone with a bot who can 1) delete pc only, then 2) replace pc only with desktop only on all pages, or vice versa. Thanks! —Awesome_Diamonds 20:45, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

    I'd love to see this happen, but it would be a lot of work. Equazcion tried to switch over to the desktop version, but the pc version is so ingrained into the wiki. I use the desktop version myself, as desktop technically encompasses PC, Linux, and Apple. I should probably get a bot. Perhaps another admin will weigh in as well. – Ferretwings (talk) 05:07, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

    Also, is there anyone with a bot who can replace all {{mobile}} with {{mobile version|short}}? —Awesome_Diamonds 20:49, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

    And then delete the Template:Mobile page? —Awesome_Diamonds 20:50, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

    To be honest, although the mobile version template is older (and would normally take precedence over the newer), if an editor is seeking brevity, the mobile template would make more sense. I'll need to ponder this a bit more. – Ferretwings (talk) 05:07, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

    DPL experts needed[edit source]

    I've written a dpl that is working well, all except for an errant page title. User:Ferretwings/Item_dropped-by_infobox
    If you place {{User:Ferretwings/Item_dropped-by_infobox}} on the Ichor page, you'll see what I'm trying to accomplish. I've played around with this a lot, but have run out of ideas. I'm hoping somebody can figure it out. – Ferretwings (talk) 23:51, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

    Fixed. Thanks Equazcion :) – Ferretwings (talk) 00:28, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

    ads, bars, popups etc (printing)[edit source]

    I understand this website has ads in order to generate ad revenue... but the reason I came to the site today was to find a printer friendly version of one of the pages to print. the problem is that with all the scrolling bars, and added junk its impossible to find a page to print that doesn't waste a ton of ink... and there are pleanty of resources on the web for the same content that you offer so it seems to me that it would be in everyones best interest to at least add an OPTIONAL link for printer friendly versions of this same information. I will continue my search for what I am looking for on other websites until I find what I am looking for, please consider to provide your viewers with a printable version of these reference materials for offline viewing. thanks -stingjay- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 14:10, 12 June 2017 (UTC).

    There is a printable version link under the Tools subsection of the sidebar which takes you to https://terraria.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=<PAGENAME>&printable=yes. I haven't used it, but comparing to the regular pages, it should save you some ink when printing. If you are running low on ink though, I would recommend either copy pasting the text into a text editor or taking a screenshot. And of course, there are always sites such as these if none of the previous methods work. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 14:50, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

    Question: How do you insert emotes?[edit source]

    I recently edited the Roman Candle wiki page and was typing "mobile and 3DS versions", but could not work out how to insert the 3DS or mobile emote. I looked through the insert tab, nothing there, and also looked at a few help pages, but still nothing. If you want, a more experienced wiki user can just change it for me, I don't mind. Here's a link to the wiki page: https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Roman_Candle —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ranklordmeow (talk • contribs) at 08:14, 18 June 2017 (UTC).

    You can insert those icons by using the {{mobile icon}} and {{3DS icon}} templates, like so:
    {{mobile icon}} -> Mobile only.png
    {{3DS icon}} -> 3DS logo.svg

    Ads cutting off content[edit source]

    This is an issue that's noticable on a lot of the Gamepedia wikis, but this one is by far the worst offender I've seen. On SEVERAL pages on the wiki, you have content that's completely cut off due to the ads getting in the way. It makes it a big pain in the butt when I'm looking at, say, a fishing list, when I have to scroll the whole way to the bottom to scroll right so I can see the notes. Is there anything that can be done to cut down on this issue a bit? I have a screenshot as an example, but the wiki prevented me from adding it due to being a "new user" (even though I've had a Gamepedia account for years...) ShadowDragoonFTW (talk) 20:03, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

    Instructions for reporting bad ads can be found at https://gamepedia.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006403627-Reporting-Bad-AdvertisementsFerretwings (talk) 03:55, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    It's not just any random ad, It's the entire right-side column that is the space that allows the ads to be there. Maybe on a higher-resolution screen it looks fine, but on a 1366x768 resolution laptop monitor, it's pretty jarring to have so much cut off. And again, it's not the fact that "occasionally there's an ad that's really wide", it's THE PAGE LAYOUT ITSELF that is the issue. http://i.imgur.com/XlMGvW1.png ShadowDragoonFTW (talk) 04:00, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    Unfourtunately, this is likely out of the hands of the Terraria Wiki's editors, as the wiki's hosting company, Curse, is the sole decider of how ads are displayed. While steps could theoretically be taken to minimize the issue, there's no saying what might break if Curse decides to change up the ad display. If you have serious issues with it, you should probably contact Curse themselves. – KM100 (talk) 04:25, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

    PRO Rank/Subscription[edit source]

    So I noticed recently that I had received a PRO rank on the wiki, could anyone give me information on what this means? Also, I noticed that it only shows up on some of my signatures, but my other signatures do not have the PRO icon, is this a bug? Thanks for looking into this! —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 03:19, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

    Gamepedia Pro is a premium subscription avaiable all across Gamepedia. As part of a rewards program, Curse gives away free pro ranks to any wiki editor that's active enough. The rank disables ads on all Gamepedia sites, grants a secure https connection, and (supposedly) displays your pro status to other users. To my knowledge, the pro icon is supposed to display all the time, but it seems to be a bit buggy right now as I can rarely see anyone else's icon, and sometimes don't even see my own. – KM100 (talk) 04:25, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

    Category:Templates and Category:Icons[edit source]

    I have noticed that, despite the insane quantity of templates on this wiki, there are only 18, I repeat, 18 templates in the category. Anyone with a bot who can fix this? —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 03:26, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

    I have also noticed that there are only 15 icons in the Category:Icons page, and NONE of these icons include the mobile, desktop, 3DS, or console icons. Is this intentional? Thanks again! —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 03:39, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

    Most templates are exempt from the Templates category, as they appear in subcategories of the Templates category instead. For example, {{Mobile only}} is in the "Notice templates" and "Version templates" subcategories rather than the "Templates" category. As far as icons go, I don't think icons missing from the category is intentional, so feel free to categorize them. – KM100 (talk) 04:25, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks, I'll try adding the icons. —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 02:28, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

    Verification: Frost Staff drops from Ice Bats in Mobile only.pngMobile?[edit source]

    I wanted to bring this to the attention of the community, since probably no one is going to visit the Frost Staff page any time soon (the last edit to the talk page was 2014 so.....) —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 03:37, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

    I can't say I've encountered enough Ice Bats on the mobile version to be conclusive, but I've never had a Frost Staff drop from them. – KM100 (talk) 04:25, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
    Same here, I will revert the edit, and wait to see if anyone challenges it. —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 02:29, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

    Block Placing Wands[edit source]

    I created a page that combines the Block Placing Wands into one page. What do you guys think about adding it to the wiki in place of the individual Block Placing Wand Pages? View it here: User:Shadowjared24/Sandbox/Block Placing Wands Shadowjared24 (talk) 18:32, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

    Looks good. I don't think the old pages should be replaced, but a page combining all the information would be helpful. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 18:51, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
    Alright. Thank you for responding. How should we implement it? Just as is but with links to the specific item pages or something else?Shadowjared24 (talk) 20:31, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

    Main Page Statistics[edit source]

    I feel like the Statistics on the Main Page aren't updating properly. It has said 136 Active Users for over a month and has not changed. It also says there are 3909 Articles, But When I look it up, I see 3920. Does anyone know why this is? Shadowjared24 (talk) 21:24, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
    I again looked into the statistics, and found that according to Special:ActiveUsers, there are 152 as of today while the top of the page still says only 136. ReedemtheD3ad (talk) 17:38, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

    Weird Terrain Generaton[edit source]

    When I first came across this I was 100% confused as of why there is a giant squirrel down here, but I then looked closer and realized it was just ice and snow.

    Quite funny :). However, this is more of a forum discussion than a wiki discussion. This community page is mainly for issues regarding wiki content or format. We don't have a page for comical terrain features, as they don't affect gameplay. You could start a thread on the forums, I'm sure others have pictures to share.

    Jungle Background Plants are absent from the Wiki[edit source]

    Jungle Background Plants.png

    I added an image in case you don't know what plants I'm talking about. If I could find some raw images of them I would add them to the ambient objects article, but I can't seem to find that. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks. Zhuckz (talk) 22:58, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

    Chinese PE Terraria 1.3[edit source]

    On July 12, 2017, Terraria PE (mobile) Chinese version began its beta testing (players will need to enter an activation code to participate in the beta testing). This version of Terraria is being produced by iDreamSky/Fun Games in partnership with 505 Games.
    For more information, visit http://www.digitalbros.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/ENG_23052016-PRDigitalBros-ExclusiverightsofTerrariatoiDreamSky_encrypted.pdf and http://news.4399.com/tailaruiya/zixun/m/772702.html

    In a statement from Pipeworks: "We wanted to provide a bit of clarification regarding some information circulating around the Chinese version of Terraria. First and foremost, the Chinese version is not an early build of what the rest of the world will receive. It's also important to note that this is a separate version being developed specifically for the Chinese market by iDreamsky, and Pipeworks is not involved with its on-going development; though we did provide iDreamSky with early code to help them hit the ground running. Once we complete work on the console update we will be shifting our focus to mobile and providing the community with frequent updates on what they can expect." -Pipeworks Studio, Aug 9, 2017 (source: https://twitter.com/pipeworks/status/895371934052999168)

    shootSpeed(velocity) of some weapons is only technically correct?[edit source]

    In itemid.cs there's a set called gunProj. It lists three item ids: Vortex Beater(id: 3475), Phantasm(id: 3540) and Phantom Phoenix(id: 3854)
    In item.cs all these weapons have their shootSpeed set to 20f, and that velocity is shown in their infoboxes
    In player.cs PickAmmo is called in a way that weapons in gunProj set don't consume ammo(at this stage). Also their knockback, damage and speed are kind of "reset", but I'm guessing that tese projectiles don't actually hit anything.
    Later in player.cs they each create their own special projectiles(names from projectileid.cs) VortexBeater(id: 615), Phantasm(id: 630), DD2PhoenixBow(id: 705)
    In projectile.cs, in AI_075, these special projectiles create the actual projectiles, but they don't use the weapon's shootSpeed as the base. Instead they use hard-coded values. For VortexBeater and Phantasm 14f is used as base speed and for DD2PhoenixBow it's 12f.
    Can someone try to verify this?
    And if this is actually correct, does it belong in the infobox or just Trivia section?
    Also trivia, gunProj likely stands for gunProjectiles, so terraria has guns that shoot guns. 18:21, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

    Pages with broken interwiki links to zh-cn[edit source]

    Noticed a red "zh-cn:Terraria Wiki:社区专页" (page does not exist) link near the top of this page. Apparently zh-cn was removed from interwiki list yesterday(Special:Log/interwiki) which probably resulted in these. No idea what needs to be done about these(seems zh-cn link was simply removed from mainpage, maybe same needs to be done to these?) so just posting a list of where I found them:

    Why Can't I Fish The Scaly Truffle?[edit source]

    I've been fishing for a Scaly Truffle for HOURS in different locations. I use a Golden Fishing Rod, Master Baits, all of the Angler clothes (hat, vest, and pants), and Fishing Potions. All that stuff gives me 130% fishing power which means I should have a 1/30-ish I think...? I'm not sure but I am certain that it's higher than 1/50. As you can see in the images shown below, I have tried multiple locations. I have read that you have to be in the cavern layers, the water has to be 300+ blocks, the biome has to be Crimson/Hallow/Corrupt but from what I've seen, most people have caught theirs in Hallow so that's what I went for (I have tried Crimson, but not corrupt). I have gone 520 blocks below the surface (I think, I don't have that tool that tells you how deep you need to go and the surface wasn't flat so I didn't know where it exactly started). I have gone a bit below the surface, high enough for Pixies to find me, but low enough where I can't see the surface. I also built my own lake by using pink ice blocks and it's exactly right above the underworld, but the backround isn't "snow/ice based". And lastly, I have gone right in between both locations. Please help me, I've spent way too long for this mount. By the way, I'm playing in IOS.

    NOTE: In the one location, I saw a Pigron spawn but not exactly where I was fishing so I moved my water all the way towards it in hopes of seeing it again but after fishing 70+ fish, I gave up. Am I just impatient, in the wrong spot, or extremely unlucky?

    Best regards, —The preceding unsigned comment was added by itsyaboioliver (talk • contribs) at 20:47, 24 August 2017‎ (UTC).

    You would probably receive better help on the official forum, but…
    Presuming you sent most of the time in the lava layer, you've either been incredibly unlucky, or the item isn't in the game. I really doubt the item isn't in the game though, so you might want to use Sonar Potions for a while to make sure you haven't missed it. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 22:50, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

    This is mobile, right? Unfortunately you've wasted your time. You aren't unlucky, you aren't impatient, you're aren't in the wrong spot. But the mistake is, There is NO Scaly Truffle on the mobile version yet. It is because, the mobile version is still around 1.2.4 while the computer version is now around 1.3.5. --IosKent (Talk Page - Contribs) 07:27, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

    Maybe he is unlucky because I was able to get a Scaly Truffle somewhere along the line, as I have one in a chest in one of my forgotten worlds —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 14:26, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

    ReedemtheD3ad!s Recent Inactivity[edit source]

    Hi Guys. So, I have had some things come up recently as you could probably tell from my recent inactivity. And so, I will be gone for a little while more (a month or so), but I will be back and ready to help out. I will post a notice when I am back. Thank you all! ReedemtheD3ad (talk) 21:07, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

    No problem, the wiki will be here when you get back :) I too have had to take some time off for some personal business, so I know how that goes. – Ferretwings (talk) 06:56, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

    Desktop Version Desktop only, Mobile only.pngMobile only, 3DS logo.svg only, and Console Version Console only Templates[edit source]

    So that more people could help out with this issue, I have posted this to the Community Noticeboard: So I noticed that on the desktop, console, mobile, and 3DS only pages say something like this: Version-Only Content, which, in a literal world, would link to Category:Version Content. However, only “Version” has a link. Are there any moderators who could temporarily un-protect it to make this edit, and are there any objections? Thanks for looking into this guys! —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 18:47, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
    As an extra note, apologies for inactivity. You know, THE HURRICANES. —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 18:51, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
    My final question: can anyone help me add a "nocat" variable to my Expert mode only template? I understand what must be accomplished, but Gamepedia is not one of my strong areas in coding. Thanks again! —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 22:06, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

    The reason that "[Version]-Only Content" doesn't have the whole phrase linked is because it wouldn't work with multi-version items. On a "Console/Mobile-Only Content" page, clicking the "-Only Content" would have link to two places at the same time, which would be impossible.
    That would cause some problems definitely it’s fine as is if that is the case. —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 12:13, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
    Also, the Expert mode only template already has a nocat function (added by User:4e696e6a6f795844). Just add "nocat = yes" if you want to use it. – KM100 (talk) 22:28, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

    Undefined[edit source]

    (The section title is correct.) I noticed that when I pressed cancel when creating a page, it sent me to the page Undefined. So that others would understand what had happened and how to go back to the creation page, I “created” the page. I tested canceling creation of a page, and it redirected to Undefined with the description I made, so it can be a temporary fix. However, I was wondering whether there is anybody who has the authority and skill to fix this Undefined redirect. —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 20:10, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

    This seems to happen on desktop browsers too; there are two cancel buttons. Pressing the red one at the bottom of the page will return you as normal, while pushing the gray one at the top-right will take you to Undefined. This same issue happens on a handful of other Gamepedia wikis too, so I'm not entirely sure what's causing it, though I don't think it's able to be fixed by any Terraria Wiki editor. – KM100 (talk) 22:28, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

    1.3 Wiki Preparations[edit source]

    I am making a new page here where anyone can add to the list of things to do on the wiki upon the 1.3 update for Console Version Console and Mobile only.pngMobile. When the update does release, you can delete items from the list as you complete changes (or if a bot has completed the change). Any objections? —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 00:54, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

    The page might get a bit barren after the release of 1.3 on other versions, but I think the page should be fine at the moment. – KM100 (talk) 22:28, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

    Ads and the mobile site[edit source]

    Ok. Enough is enough. The ads on this wiki have gotten out of control. At the start, it was ok, quit a few near-definite malicous ads at the bottom and top of pages, but it was fine as long as you were careful where you click. Then, video ads started popping up. To sum up these, I would like to be able to browse this site without having a heart attack every time I go to a new page or open up a new tab (I know that I could just mute my computer, but sometimes I also want to listen to music, y'know?) and then subsequently scanning through every page's adverts to find the right one to make it SHUT UP! However, this was bearable. Then came along the "around the web" section. Sometimes, this appears at the side of the page and cramps up the page incredibly, but that's uncommon enough to not be much of a hassle. The fact that it is obvious, insulting, unpleasant clickbait is just terrible, though. And finally, now ads that physically force your screen down/up to it. I came here to find out what the best way to kill a boss is, not how to assemble a doorbell (or whatever it is). Its even worse when 2 appear, then you might end up with your computer going crazy flitting between the top and bottom of the page like crazy, with the only way around any of this is to use the occasional brief lull between the ad finishing and restarting. So all in all, wile I love Terraria and all the beautiful info on this wiki, these ads are just getting stupid. Whether I'm complaining to the right person or not I don't know. But someone needs to sort out what ads this website shows, because from the start they have been terrible and only gotten worse. In unrelated news, this all could just be my phone (#hopeless), but the mobile site is dying. A: constant crashes for no reason (I'll put this one down to my phone as it does it on other websites as well) B: layout errors galore! Text properly sized to fit the screen, tables SOMETIMES compress themselves to be scroll-able horizontally, but most of the time regardless of the table failing there is a humongous empty space to the right of every page for no apparent reason. C:In typical moblie fashion, all of the catagories on a page is compressed. This is fine, up until they make the page absolutely unresponsive just because you try to open one (again, could be my phone, but also the ADS could play some part in this, especially the one slap bamg in the middle of the page.). I'm sorry if I sound angry or am insulting anyone, but this is how I feel. Thanks for reading. RIP Ocram... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) September 24, 2017 1:29 PM EST‎

    Main Page[edit source]

    The Main Page is protected, so are there any admins who can edit these:

    • Android doesn’t have a link to buy for Amazon nor Android
    • It says that 3DS is the equivalent of desktop 1.2, but it doesn’t say that it won’t receive future updates (that would be added so that new players seeking to buy the game may be assisted in their decision)

    Thanks for looking into it! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 18:47, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

    The links are there. Perhaps it isn't obvious that they are "buy" links. I'll need to fix that. As for 3DS, space on the page is at a premium. We'd rather not add more information. It should be sufficient to list the version on the main page, and then if a user wants more information, they can go to the 3DS page. I have played around with some formatting on the Terraria_Wiki/sandbox in preparation for the console release (you can see the current version and my proposed version of the right-side boxes). – Ferretwings (talk) 01:16, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
    Additionally, while the main page is indeed protected, proposed changes or fixes are always welcome. This is the purpose of Terraria Wiki/editcopy. Make changes there, and an admin will update as necessary. Chrisf1020 (talk) 12:06, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
    Didn’t know I could edit an editcopy page. Thanks for your inputs and looking into it! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 12:11, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

    —This discussion thread has been resolved.—

    Commenting On Users[edit source]

    One day, I was browsing the wiki, and went to post a comment on my profile, but it said I needed to confirm my email. I went ahead and confirmed it, but the notice that I can’t comment is still there, does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks for looking into it! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 14:17, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

    Curious, you're the second editor who has reported this. Have you tried deleting your cookies? – Ferretwings (talk) 18:50, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
    Just deleted/cleared cookies and relogged, strangely it is still not letting me comment. It’s a minor issue, so it’s okay for me if it’s not fixed yet, but if you like you can keep searching for the other user—ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 12:51, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
    I checked with the Gamepedia staff, and other editors are having the same issue. They're looking into it. – Ferretwings (talk) 21:23, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

    History Sections: Version Separation[edit source]

    As many of you may have noticed, I have been separating history sections into subsections of versions. Any feedback (good, bad, or neither)? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 18:35, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

    I think the subsection headers for history are a bit large for the one/two lines that follow. Bold font would work better in my opinion. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 22:56, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
    This suggestion came up before, and it sort of died (or maybe it simply got put on the back burner). I do like the idea. I suggest a small change to the history template: Template:History/sandbox. Look at the Terraria_Wiki:Sandbox for an idea on how it would be used. – Ferretwings (talk) 15:06, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
    History/Sandbox looks pretty good. Do you think it should stay where it is, or should it be moved to History2 (or even replace history later on with the help of a bot)? Also, maybe a bot could go to history sections adding a notification banner saying that it needs version separation? Thanks for your feedback! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 18:05, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
    I'll give the other editors and admins some time to mull it over. The changes would be added to the current History template, as I haven't added anything that would break existing pages. I may play with the header size first. – Ferretwings (talk) 21:20, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
    It looks nice, and, had I heard about it before, I would have approved of it. However, with the whole "One Terraria" project that's being worked on, I don't know if it would really be necessary. With all modern versions slated to receive updates at about the same time as each other, it'd end up with the history section as just the same information repeated three times over. I think it would be more helpful to split the history section by when versions of Terraria are discontinued, so players on obsolete versions can see what changes are the most recent for those versions. – KM100 (talk) 14:19, 3 October 2017 (UTC)
    True... Maybe we could compromise with something like this:

    ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 23:29, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

    I've recently updated Template:History/sandbox and Terraria_Wiki:Sandbox if you'd like to have a look. – Ferretwings (talk) 17:44, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
    That looks awesome! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 14:11, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
    I saw your new comment on the history page, I agree that it should be called something like “Platform-Specific Updates” —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 04:53, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

    Crafting Recipes[edit source]

    Our wiki currently uses the Template:Crafting recipe to hold the crafting recipe for each item on its page. On some pages, we found the template to be insufficient - namely, on group pages like Table and all the other furniture. On these pages we use Template:Crafts because it is more space efficient.

    It has been suggested by a couple of editors that perhaps we should switch over to using Template:Crafts for all pages. This should not be the decision of just one or two people, as it affects every craftable item on the wiki (many edits, lol). Please take the time to think about it, and weigh in on the suggestion. – Ferretwings (talk) 00:13, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    P.S. If you'd like to compare the two versions, using the Obsidian Skull recipe click here for the proposed change... click here for the old version. – Ferretwings (talk) 00:32, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    Template:Crafts is organized in an easier-to read, more space-efficient way than Template:Crafting recipe. For better-designed, consistent recipes for both the item and its materials, we should use Template:Crafts. 00:28, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
    I agree that it is easier to read and more space efficient, but it's not necessarily easy to use. Often the code for the crafting recipe template is easy to edit and type out, whereas its crafts counterpart is a complicated sequence of |s with parameters such as toolspan/top being necessary to understand for the template to work properly. A new editor who hasn't checked the documentation out might have trouble with it. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 01:11, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    The Issue of 3DS logo.svg and the Templates[edit source]

    Before 1.3 comes out on consoles and mobile devices, I was wondering what should happen with 3DS. Since lots of new content will be rolling out, there will be lots of pages with

    Desktop VersionConsole Version Old-gen console versionMobile only.png Desktop/Console/Old-gen console/Mobile-Only Content: This information applies only to the desktopconsoleold-gen console, and mobile versions of Terraria.

    So what I was thinking we could do is make a {{Unavailable}} where it could say something like “This content is not available on 3DS and old-gen consoles.” Or should we disregard 3DS and just not put an exclusive template at all? I’m open to any suggestions —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 14:16, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    Edit, I made {{Old content}} and {{New content}} templates, any feedback?
    Regarding banners, I considered making some a number of months ago. I placed the project on hold, because there were a couple of other issues that needed addressing. One of the issues regards the number of banners on the page. I feel we should never have more than one banner at the top, because they do take up a lot of room. When looking at the page on mobile, it is quite evident. A single banner template, such as Template:Exclusive can be used. Some ideas I had (for usage) were:
    Available only on Desktop Version Desktop

    * Even with the "One" Terraria, there will always be a gap... the Desktop version is always released first.

    Available only on Desktop Version Desktop, Xbox One Version Xbox One, and Ps icon.pngPS4
    Expert mode item
    Available only on Desktop Version Desktop, Xbox One Version Xbox One, and Ps icon.pngPS4

    * All content between 1.2.4 and 1.3
    * Some players may not realize that their console platform is considered "old" so it may be best to list the platforms

    Available only on Wii U logo.png, Xbox 360 Version Xbox 360, Ps icon.png PS3, PSVita, and 3DS logo.svg

    * All those console exclusives that are being removed will still be available on the old-gen consoles.
    * When only stats change, we can just use icons (or an "old-gen" icon which can display the platforms when moused over).

    Available on all platforms except 3DS logo.svg [due to ...]

    * All/most content between 1.2 and 1.2.4
    * When an item is unavailable due to hardware limitations, it might be good to add an explanation (sent to the template as a param)

    Available on all platforms

    * maybe?

    Ferretwings (talk) 17:00, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
    Sorry for the late reply, but those look pretty good. Just updated your svg images to be in template form. Also, I’m slightly concerned about my sig, I read the rules and it says the sigs that are different than the actual username is malicious... Is mine an exception since it’s redirected to User:Awesome diamonds? Thanks! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 04:38, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
    But then again... {{Exclusive}} may have stolen the idea, but it might be able to be modified for use with the Xbox One, PS4, etc. Also, about the allversions, it’s a viable option, since much of the content on the wiki will become exclusive over time. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 04:42, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

    Also an unrelated question, it seems that the {{Naturalgen only}} I made has some code flaw or something that makes it take up an insane amount of space below it on pages, anyone know how to fix it? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 14:21, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    Took care of it :) – Ferretwings (talk) 23:14, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

    Finally, would it be a good idea to add a functionality where {{exclusive}} can have an expert=y to output {{expert mode only}}? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 14:23, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    I think it would be a good idea to use a single banner (the exclusive template) to inform wiki users that an item is Expert mode and also which platforms have it.– Ferretwings (talk) 23:14, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

    Final (actual final) thing: I noticed that {{Expert}} seems to no longer link to Expert mode (unless it’s just me). Also, is there a reason that we do not have a desktop version page? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 17:07, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    Pointing Treasure Bag(bossname) to correct section of the Treasure Bag page[edit source]

    Currently treasure bag in boss infoboxes links to a "Treasure Bag (bossname)" page that redirects to top of the Treasure Bag page. I'd like to try to change those redirects to point to Treasure Bag#bossname, and add id="bossname" to the specific boss bag tables on the Treasure Bag page, to make those infobox links scroll to the relevant section of the page. I don't think it would break anything, and it'd make comparing normal and expert mode drops easier. Just asking if anyone has objections or comments. 20:58, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

    No objections, I’d say go ahead —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 15:51, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
    Did the changes, seems to be working as I intended, but feel free to revert the changes for any reason(I learned that I don't actually understand how the backend works and I just got lucky). 17:52, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

    Armor image replacement[edit source]

    User:Awesome diamonds recently tagged some old files for deletion, and as a result I ended up looking through Special:UnusedFiles to find that there are quite a few images that are simply separated versions of files such as File:Cobalt armor female.png and File:Titanium_armor_female.png. A lot of the files are deprecated and unused, so I was planning to delete most of the separate files, however, I was wondering if anyone else might see a potential purpose for them. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 13:16, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

    Possibly it could be used in a gallery, in Template:Cobalt, or wherever File:Cobalt armor female.png takes up too much space. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 13:30, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

    Phoenix Blaster tips inconsistencies?[edit source]

    This might seem pedantic (sorry), but I noticed that in the tips for the "Phoenix Blaster" it states that "It is not recommended to upgrade your Handgun to a Phoenix Blaster because the Phoenix Blaster does not autofire." (emphasis on NOT). The sentence firstly leads one to infer that the Handgun DOES have auto-fire, and upgrading would get rid of it- this would be incorrect (at least according the Handgun page since it doesn't have auto-fire either). Secondly the line above it suggests that the Phoenix Blaster is useful until early-mid hard-mode, well after it's obtainable, this advice would be moot if one shouldn't upgrade to it over the Handgun. Why wouldn't someone upgrade it since it literally is a pure upgrade according to the 2 pages. It seems like the advice to NOT upgrade should just be removed, or is there another reason this tip is here, could this use some clarification perhaps? Darkl88 (talk) 07:13, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

    Regarding the autofire, you are correct. An editor added icons for desktop and console, but this note is only relevant to mobile users. I've corrected it. – Ferretwings (talk) 15:17, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

    New Mobile Update[edit source]

    I have been looking at the news for mobile updates, and it says the upddate should come in the second half of 2017. ITs already October so im wondering, is the update still happening, is there a specific date for the update now, or has it been delayed to next year?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 05:09, October 16, 2017‎ (UTC).

    Luckily, it’s not delayed until next year yet. However, the update is estimated November, next month, to December. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 12:12, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

    Editing[edit source]

    Hello, I would like to be added to the list of trusted editors. Do I add myself, or do I have to make more helpful edits to the wiki to become one? I don't want to come across as pushy, I was just wondering. Giga 5 (talk) 22:20, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

    Also, What's the difference between a user's talk page and community noticeboard discussion?

    Thanks! -Giga_5 Giga 5 (talk) 22:20, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

    (1)What I did to get there was I went to the top section and added a new reply, and just said my basic experience with the wiki as an editor and Terraria as a player/ability to playtest, and finally what version (e.g. 3DS logo.svg) I had. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 11:41, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
    You also might need more edits, I can’t be sure, but it’s still definitely worth a shot —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 11:43, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
    (2) They both function about the same way, except the community noticeboard is usually better noticed/visited more frequently. The user talk pages are less visited (except the user who has the talk page, who would get a notification when there’s a new comment).
    Basically, I think of it like this: user talk pages for asking specific users questions, and noticeboard for issues where everyone can pitch in and help answer the question —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 11:41, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

    Media uploading[edit source]

    Would it be rude to upload a gif to a page that already has a stationary image for an example on it (E.g. The K.O cannon) I love to make gifs but I am having trouble finding weapons/other items to make them of. Any ideas? Giga 5 (talk) 20:03, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

    I think it would be a great idea to upload a gif for pages with only a stationary image. I’m not sure where else gifs would be needed (but there are many pages without a gif and only an image), but you’ll probably find something :) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 00:04, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
    EDIT: The Rudolph Mount also doesn’t have a gif, so you could make one for that —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 00:12, 22 October 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for the idea! I uploaded it. If you have any more ideas, drop it on my talk page! Thx again. Giga 5 (talk) 00:37, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
    Could you record it when it's not raining, lol? – Ferretwings (talk) 04:51, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
    It's important to note that, if a page doesn't have a gif, that doesn't mean it necessarily needs one. Gifs with things, like rain, set bonuses, pets/light pets, can end up as less of an informative video and more of a distraction. In general, gifs should only be placed on pages that need them to convey a point or demonstrate unusual behavior, and even then should be high-quality and mostly distraction free. – KM100 (talk) 13:28, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
    Ok, sorry. :( I am perhaps too enthusiastic about helping out, what should I do now? I love terraria as a game, but I don't know what i should do. Giga 5 (talk) 01:23, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
    Unless there’s a compromise... maybe you could upload images (I’m not that good with gifs and stuff like that, but maybe images would work) in a gallery section, or maybe even gifs? Gallery sections are dedicated to images and gifs, and won’t distract from the text. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 04:29, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I there a specific gallery section, or do I have to make one for every page? Giga 5 (talk) 14:29, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

    You would have to make one with
    == Gallery ==
    That is, once somebody else besides me approves of this idea (just to make sure no rules are broken or anything) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 15:35, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
    Also, can I use a fact or two from the wiki in my own website, if I give credit to the wiki? Giga 5 (talk) 14:31, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
    You can use a few facts from the wiki on your site. I don’t know how the Copyright works though, I think that facts are not restricted by, but I’m not sure... I would give credit just in case. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 15:35, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
    Look at the bottom of the pages you intend to use. Most, if not all, user generated content pages have "Content is available under CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 unless otherwise noted." with a link to creative commons page that explains the terms. 15:50, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
    Alright, thanks! :D Giga 5 (talk) 22:03, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I just added a gif for the Asphalt Block that I think matches with KM100's specifications. It does have a "unique" property, so I think it's appropriate, but I guess you guys are the experts. What do you think?

    I'd normally be a bit iffy on whether or not asphalt is unique enough for a gif, but I think this turned out quite well; it's quite professional looking, and fits in nicely with the page. Either way, the rules for wiki editing are pretty lenient, so don't be too afraid to experiment with editing pages and adding content. – KM100 (talk) 02:11, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

    Thanks! I will try to make more gifs with your specifications. ;D Giga 5 (talk) 03:25, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

    Editing Errors[edit source]

    (Image deleted)
    I found this new error every time I edit (above). It gives me an error after I upload or edit an image or page. respectively. The edit is saved, but it does get quite annoying, was there a recent coding change to the wiki, or is this an error just for me? If you know how to fix it, please share —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 12:12, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

    This also happened to me when I tried to upload a gif over 1400 pixels wide and 1200 pixels tall. It could also be the recent Amazon Hosting service migration all of Gamepedia took, and there are different ways to edit. Giga 5 (talk) 13:56, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

    That could be, I'll stay tuned —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:10, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

    It appears this glitch has stopped happening, it may just occur with uploads now, if that helps narrow it down —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:12, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

    Sorry for the late reply... They are aware of the problem. "These are issues we are working to resolve, but we have no quick fixes for them right now. The images will show up and behave consistently eventually, but does require some patience. Our apologies. -alianin" – Ferretwings (talk) 16:23, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

    Special:Random and the Mainspace[edit source]

    Recently, I created the pages Undefined (for users who got the error and were redirected there) and Upload (for a convenient link). However, Special:Random has a very small chance of going to those pages, so is there a way (like adding certain Magic words) to remove it from the random probability logic of Special:Random? If not, would there be any coders who could do this? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 00:10, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

    Nevermind, this should be a minor issue. Redirects apparently are not navigated to ever by Special:Random, and Undefined should be fine since it has a nice little explanation —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 14:23, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
    Apparently the extra cancel button was since removed, tagged Undefined for deletion —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 14:38, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

    New Project[edit source]

    I will have some small bits of time here and there to do some editing now. I would like to start a new project on the wiki. It would involve extensive reorginazation of files. The purpose is to make it easier to use the files. The two main things I would like to focus on in this project are categorizing and notating them. For categorization, I think there should be smaller categories within the category: "Terraria Images". I am thinking something like seperating them into two main categories, "Game Screenshots", and "Game Content". Within "Game Content", I am thinking of seperating them further to categories such as "Item Images", "Projectile Images", "NPC Images", etc. Now as for the notation, I am thinking of adding what the image is based on the local English Name and the internal source code name and if there are other uses based off of identical files.

    For some Examples: for Stylish Scissors.png, there would be:

    Image file for:

    • Item: Stylish Scissors
      • Original Image Name: Item_3352.png
      • Internal Name: StylistKilLaKillScissorsIWish
      • Internal ID: 3352

    For Ancient Storm.png there would be,

    Image file for:

    • Projectile: Ancient Storm
      • Original Image Name: Projectile_656.png
      • Internal Name: SandnadoFriendly
      • Internal ID: 656
    • Projectile: Ancient Storm
      • Original Image Name: Projectile_657.png
      • Internal Name: SandnadoHostile
      • Internal ID: 657
    • Projectile: Whirlwind of Infinite Wisdom
      • Original Image Name: Projectile_704.png
      • Internal Name: DD2ApprenticeStorm
      • Internal ID: 704

    Please let me know if this is a good idea to start. Also, if you have any suggestions to add, modify, or remove any part from this project propsal let me know. I am open to what you all think will be best for the Wiki. Thank you all. ReedemtheD3ad (talk) 00:56, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

    I have always been hoping for someone who could do this, that would be awesome! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 01:32, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
    That's quite a project you've taken on :) I tried to get another editor to do something similar, but they weren't with us very long. I feel this would be most beneficial, and would aid in searching for data in the source files. – Ferretwings (talk) 16:39, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
    Alright, Thanks. I think I will start with the Categorization and then move on to the notation. I will also probably be updating some of the Files as I go as I know some are outdated. I can start shortly. ReedemtheD3ad (talk) 17:24, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
    I will help as much as I can! I know i'm kind of a newbie around here, but I can take images of items/projectiles/etc that do not already have an image. I also memorized a lot of internal ID numbers (mods I use require IDs to spawn items and npcs) so I could help with that. Tell me (via talk page or other) what I should help with. Giga 5 (talk) 02:23, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
    Im not sure I understand correctly what you want to do but if you explain it a bit more I could help you. Im all for categorizing images properly but im VERY STRONGLY against changing the names of the files to stuff like Item_3352.png --Leonord cursetalk」 09:56, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I am definitely not suggesting changing the file names. The main thing I want to do is categorize the files down some more as having 9000+ files in only one big category seems to be a bit to much. The other thing is just making a Notes section onto the file pages themselves containing information about the image to help with locating it within the source code and files and usage on the wiki.

    Second, to answer Giga5, Yes, I would definately love to have help in this as it is a lenghtly project. I already have all of the source files ready to be uploaded if needed. The main thing we should focus on now is Categorization. Using HotCat is definately useful in speeding up the process. ReedemtheD3ad (talk) 21:48, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

    Ah I think I get it now. We would just write that filename in the notes. Well send me a link to the data if you want some help. Are you on discord? --Leonord cursetalk」 08:05, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

    I do not know how to use HotCat on Gamepedia, only on Wikipedia. Can you help me? Thanks. :) Giga 5 (talk) 00:22, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

    Oh, wait, nevermind. Finally found the gadgets bar! :) Giga 5 (talk) 00:27, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

    @User:Leonord curse Yes I am on Discord. I can definitely send you the source files. I would love the help. Thank you. ReedemtheD3ad (talk) 00:31, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

    Usernames[edit source]

    I was just wondering, how do you change your username color? Ferretwings and Awesome_Diamonds have colors on their nametags. Do I use a hexadecimal value somewhere, or only DodgerBlue and SpringGreen and the like because i'm a normal twitch user? Thanks. Giga 5 (talk) 14:56, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

    If you edit your profile, you see a number of settings you can change. Near the bottom, you can set your signature.
    You can use just about any html/wiki code, but only a certain number of characters can be typed in that tiny edit box. Mine is set to &ndash; [[User:Ferretwings|<span style="color:#00755E; font:bold 15px Comic Sans MS,Arial">Ferretwings</span>]] <sup>([[User talk:Ferretwings|<span style="color:#800020; font:bold 13px Comic Sans MS,Arial">talk</span>]])</sup> which is about the maximum number of characters. – Ferretwings (talk) 15:44, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

    Thanks! I do not know html or wiki code, so i'll just leave it be (I do know Java and C++ though). Is wiki code its own code, or is it based on something else? Giga 5 (talk) 20:01, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

    Wikicode is derived from MediaWiki's code (just scroll down to the bottom of any page and click the mediawiki logo to see their site). I’m pretty sure it’s like an HTML-CSS hybrid —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 21:20, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
    I messed around with it, and i'm pretty happy with it Giga 5 (talk) 03:49, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

    Various very important lists needed in wiki[edit source]

    List of weapons that pass through blocks

    List of weapons with area/splash damage

    List of piercing weapons

    List of enemies doing explosive damage —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 10:59, 31 October 2017 (UTC).

    Transcluded to Terraria Wiki:List of Proposed EditsϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 02:05, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

    Should these lists be their own article, within the Weapons page? Giga 5 (talk) 23:13, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

    I would give each list it's own page. We could add appropriate flags to the item infobox, and then use dpl to retrieve the lists. Possible flags: passthrough (not fond of the name), piercing, aoe (perhaps this should be a value). Explosive damage? Could this be found in the source code? That one may be a little more difficult to handle. – Ferretwings (talk) 23:33, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
    I did add "enemies doing explosive damage" because player should be cautious when fighting enemies that can destroy tiles, especially near their base/house, but I am not sure any enemy like past clown exist anymore. So, you can either forget about that list or change it to "enemies doing area damage" to warn players to not to only be cautious about direct hits.
    That's in mind here is idea for a new list: "List of weapons that can destroy tiles" so you should be especially cautious when using them near your house/base.
    Sorry, this is my first time contributing a wiki, I don't know if I should add here or somewhere else when I think new lists or ideas. 13:09, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
    What weapons can destroy tiles? (other than bombs and dynamite) I don't think any weapons can destroy tiles. (It's true that pickaxes and similar tools deal damage, but that's not their main purpose, so the're classified as 'tools') Giga 5 (talk) 14:21, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
    You can add list ideas here if you want, unless you have a really big list, and then you can start a new discussion :) Giga 5 (talk) 14:23, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
    Umm, some rockets for example and land mine maybe. I don't know if there is more but if these are only examples then there is not a need for creating a list just for these in my opinion. 14:51, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
    It's ok. Sorry if I came across as rude earlier. :D Giga 5 (talk) 17:54, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

    List of enemies with attacks that passes through blocks (feel free change name of list since its long and weird)

    List of enemies that can travel through blocks 18:41, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    List of weapons that inflict status effects. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 23:54, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

    {{Available on}} and {{Exclusive}}[edit source]

    Which one should be used? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 18:17, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

    When I created {{Available on}} I didn't realize that another editor had already created a similar template {{Exclusive}}. They aren't quite the same, and I began incorporating some of 'Available on' into 'Exclusive'. The name 'Exclusive' is quite descriptive of its function (and shorter, lol), so I'd go with 'Exclusive'. I'd like to keep 'Available on' for a bit longer, but have been using 'Exclusive'... exclusively :) – Ferretwings (talk) 19:44, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
    Got it, should I put a deprecated warning in the doc (so that new editors know not to use it)? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:32, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
    Nevermind, it seems you beat me to it ;). Also, good pun there, just noticed that —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:34, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
    Almost forgot, I have another question concerning {{Exclusive}}: the sandbox2 is a little out of date, so when the changes are automatically applied it may erase some edits (like the nocat-section collaboration). Will we just have to manually move the expert function? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:36, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
    There isn't anything 'automatic'. Once an editor is finished with a sandbox, it is up to them to move information over to the main template/page. They should be aware that changes may have been made to the main template/page, and may want to update their sandbox first and test it again. When they're done with it, I suppose the sandbox should be cleared so others know they're done. No need to delete the sandbox, as I'm sure it will be used again. If a template has a sandbox2, I would flag it for deletion after you're done with it. – Ferretwings (talk) 00:04, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
    However, if a template has been protected, then an admin needs to be asked to do the updating. – Ferretwings (talk) 00:09, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

    It may be confusing to novice viewers, for "available on" kind of sounds like it is present on all platforms, but its special properties or something isn't. For example, if I was just starting terraria, and I think the Zapinator looks cool, and I see "available on 3DS" I might assume that it is present on PC and mobile, just the page for it is referencing the "3DS version of the weapon". This is just an idea, so you do what you think is right :) Giga 5 (talk) 23:22, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

    True, I’ll make that slight modification before it gets deprecated or something —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:32, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

    {{Wall crafts}}[edit source]

    As many of you may have noticed, I made a new wall crafts template, so that all walls could be updated quickly if needed. As I was going through the wood walls, I realized that all of the pages were pretty much the exact same, except for the names listed (which could be fixed up with a little {{#replace:}}). Maybe they could all be merged into Wood Wall, like the wands are? (And then a {{wood wall|Example}} could automatically fill out each section, or everything could simply be copy-pasted) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 13:42, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

    I like it. However... there is a project I keep putting off, that may (or may not) conflict with what you've done. Perhaps you would like to take it on yourself? I'll continue this on your talk page, since it may get rather lengthy. – Ferretwings (talk) 06:37, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
    Sorry for late reply, I’ll go ahead to my talk page —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 15:20, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

    Editing Issues[edit source]

    So I have been experiencing some strange things when trying to edit. In a project I am working on, when I try to make an edit on a large page, it throws me a "500 Internal Server Error." I have tried on multiple web browsers, making small edits, and making edits on other large pages. I still get that error. Why is this happening? I have very fast internet and more than sufficient Ram so that shouldn't be the issue. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:34, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

    I get the same error. I just reported it. I'll let you know what they say. – Ferretwings (talk) 06:11, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Terraria Wiki has had some major back-end changes happening, moving servers etc, and they're still working on smoothing this out.
    500 errors (or 501, 502, etc) have nothing to do with your internet speed or browser. They are server errors on our end and they're being worked on. You can continue to report these, just be specific -- what you were trying to do (save an edit, view a page, upload a file) and which error number or message you got. I'll pass these along to the Gamepedia techs as they come.
    I'd anticipate some intermittent issues over the next few days at least while these things get sorted out. I'll do my best to keep everyone updated. Thanks for your patience! Equazcion (talk) 06:45, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)

    What was the error number displayed there? Try to grab that too next time. Thanks! Equazcion (talk) 07:47, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    Curiously, there was no error number. I'll try to duplicate it and take a screenshot. – Ferretwings (talk) 07:56, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Oh okay, I think I know the type of message you're talking about. Do grab a screenshot though, if you see it again. It might help. I have passed this along though, thanks :) Equazcion (talk) 08:03, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    I've got a screenshot, but I get a 500 error when I try to upload it. Ironic? – Ferretwings (talk) 08:10, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Ha yeah. You don't need to upload it here, you can use tinypic, picpaste, or whatever, and just leave a link or something here (or in discord). Equazcion (talk) 08:12, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    I'm heading off for tonight. To be continued tomorrow. Anyone can feel free to continue posting any issues, especially new ones that haven't been posted yet. Thanks again for your patience while we get this all sorted out. Equazcion (talk) 08:16, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)

    I have been getting 500 Internal Server Error “ngix/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)” when trying to edit any page or upload, or complete any action whatsoever. In fact, this edit may not even save.ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 14:29, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Thank goodness it saved, had me a bit scared there. If it helps, this is the only page I can edit successfully thus far, might be something about different namespaces migrating first? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 14:31, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    EDIT: Guide namespace appears to be the only thing I can’t edit. I do still believe it is the namespace doing it though. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 14:52, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    ANOTHER EDIT: Uploading appears to be broken too, and gives the same error. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 15:04, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    My guess is that the problematic page loads are fairly random, despite any patterns you might be noticing regarding namespaces etc. Thanks for the reports! I've passed these along to the techs and they're continuing to look into these. Equazcion (talk) 15:07, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    Ok. Thanks for the replies. It makes me fell a little better knowing that it isn't just me experiencing the issues. I was trying to edit a page in my sandbox. I could not submit an edit unless the page was small. If I tried, it displayed to me the "500 Internal Server Error ngix/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)." I am glad that it is getting worked on though. I will see if I am still getting that error today. Again, Thanks. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 01:17, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
    I just successfully submitted the edit. Yay! It worked! :) – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 01:25, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

    Lengthy Noticeboard[edit source]

    I have noticed that this Community Noticeboard Page has become quite Lengthy. With this Discussion being the 76th currently. Many of the current discussions are long since closed. Should they be put into the archive? What is the limit in which it is decided to archive? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 01:32, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

    Yeah probably time. I've just now archived everything before June 2017. Thanks for the suggestion. Equazcion (talk) 01:36, 10 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    No problem. Just noticed that it was a little cumbersome to have to scroll down past some old discussions. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 01:57, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

    Wiki migration[edit source]

    My humblest apologies for not posting this earlier.

    On October 16th, 2017, Gamepedia began the process of migrating their wikis to a new host, Amazon Web Services. Terraria Wiki was moved on November 6th, and continues to experience page errors with each wiki migration. Gamepedia staff are aware of the problems, and are working to solve them. – Ferretwings (talk) 03:32, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

    Update: The Gamepedia migration completed on November 15th. Gamepedia staff are now dealing with a number of post-migration issues. Known issues: Image uploading and displaying, search errors, page load/save errors, and IPs beginning with 172.31 (these are internal IP addresses which should never be blocked). Measures have been put in place to reduce the number of spammers and vandals, and Gamepedia staff are working to find other ways. Please continue to report new problems. – Ferretwings (talk) 16:29, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

    Page errors[edit source]

    Today, we encountered 500, 504, 525, and "website is offline" errors. Some css issues have already been resolved. If you are experiencing problems not yet mentioned, please comment below. – Ferretwings (talk) 03:32, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

    Besides an occasional weird font-reset to Times New Roman, it seems all issues have been fixed, but more may pop up —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 04:06, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
    Occasionally links that are on a page (within the wiki) link back to the home page, instead of the corresponding page. Also, sometimes after I leave the wiki then come to back the community noticeboard, the box that normally says "Your edit was Saved" pops up and says "{confirmation-postedit-null}" (without the quotation marks) or something like that. The fact that it says "postedit" leads me to assume that it is confirming that an earlier edit that I had made was saved, although I don't know for sure. Giga 5 (talk) 04:21, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
    The next time you find a link error, please record which page the link was on, and where it was supposed to link to, so I can try to duplicate the error.
    I have seen the edit saved message myself on a number of occasions (it is an old issue). After things settle down after the wiki migrations, we'll try to figure that one out. I'll see if I can't duplicate that saved message, and take a screenshot (and if you see it before me, please take a screenshot). Right now, we're trying to fix anything that gets broken during the migration. – Ferretwings (talk) 05:42, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
    It seems that every time I make an edit, especially with an edit summary, it logs me out and doesn't save the edit.
    I've already specifically added terraria.gamepedia.com to my allowed cookies list, but to no avail. Anyone who can help? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 22:56, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
    So far, so good, it seems at least the noticeboard is working. But I can't edit my userpage to tell people why I put a recent changes transclude since the editing is glitched —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 22:57, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
    It appears Userspace is the only namespace affected, have been testing. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 23:05, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
    The issues appear to have been fixed, however if any other similar ones pop up, mention them here or in any earlier Editing Errors discussion section. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 20:20, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for the report. Gamepedia is still dealing with post-migration issues. – Ferretwings (talk) 01:27, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
    Editing Guide:Enemy_farming, I didn't get logged out, but when I hit "save" it bounced me back to the wikitext view. I think it was showing my edited text at that point, but when I hit "save" again, it went back to the page view but my edits had vanished. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 03:58, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
    This has happened to me as well. If you hit your back button, it should take you back to your edit, and you can save again. I'll check if this has been reported yet. – Ferretwings (talk) 04:38, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
    I've now reported this. Equazcion (talk) 04:40, 22 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    Ferretwings: Tried that, I got the unedited wikitext. ETA: On second try: Coming back this morning, I went back to the tab and tried "back" again. The first "back" got the unedited text again, but the second back warned me about losing my edits... then returned me to the edited wikitext. Thanks! --MentalMouse42 (talk) 11:31, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
    Oh yeah... I was and am still getting en error dialog when trying to graphical-edit the page: "Error loading data from server: apierror-visualeditor-docserver-http: HTTP 500.

    It should be fixed now. – Ferretwings (talk) 17:31, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

    Pro[edit source]

    Yesterday I checked this wiki to see if I had any notifications, then I noticed that I had the pro symbol next to my name. However, today it disappeared. I was wondering if it was an error, because all of the people that have pro on here seemed to have been here a long time and are close to being/are admins. However, I could see the pro icon on my name on all of my discussions. I was just wondering if it was a mistake because I don't want to take credit for someone else's work. :) Giga 5 (talk) 00:08, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

    This might be a glitch. If it is, don't worry, you aren't taking credit for anyone's work.
    However, you don't need to be close to becoming an admin in order to have a Pro badge. You just need to be a consistent contributor over the course of a month or two (the exact criticaleria isn't published). Normally you'd get an email telling you if you were getting Pro, but the servers are a bit wonky right now. It's possible you have it but weren't notified -- and it may have disappeared because they've always been a little glitchy like that, disappearing and re-appearing from everyone's names.
    Here https://help.gamepedia.com/UserProfile:Giga_5 the Pro badge displayed for you, last time I looked. If you disable any ad blockers and you still don't see an advertisement sidebar while logged in, chances are you do have Pro on your account. Equazcion (talk) 16:45, 16 Nov 2017 (UTC)

    New Templates[edit source]

    I created some new templates that can be used to rotate images and other elements. This can eliminate the need for multiple duplicate files that are simply rotated. They are Template:Flip and Template:Rotate. Template:Mirror is another but was already created. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 23:59, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

    I created another new template for Old Gen Content. What do you guys think? User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Templates/Template:Old gen contentReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 17:34, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
    This looks good. All I would add is the old-gen icon (so new readers know what the icon means) and then make the colors a little lighter. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 18:12, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
    I updated it. Is that better? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:16, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

    Foreign Use Files[edit source]

    I was thinking of making a page for files which have foreign uses (those used in the interwiki system for the Terraria wiki in other languages or Terraria Mod Wikis). This page would display all of the images so that they don't show up in Special:UnusedFiles. What do you guys think? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 01:55, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

    If there were a way to keep that page updated automatically I would say yes, but I think a page like that would constantly be out-of-date as time went by. Equazcion (talk) 02:14, 1 Dec 2017 (UTC)
    I guess that is a good point. I guess the best thing to do is mark the pages with the {{nodelete}} Template so they don't get mistakenly deleted? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:47, 1 December 2017 (UTC)
    Marking them with {{nodelete}} seems like a good idea, but I do agree with Equazcion, it would be nice if we had an automatically updating page for interwiki files. — Awesome diamonds via 22:54, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

    Terraria Licenses[edit source]

    There currently are two licenses for Terraria based images, Terraria and Terraria other. I think a the "other" part of the name is a bit vague. Perhaps we should change the name to "Screenshots and Artwork" or even split it into two separate licenses, "Screenshots" and "Artwork" for each? That would require the original Terraria one to be changed to "Source" or something along those lines. If anyone else has any input on how to make the licenses better, please add to this discussion. Thank you all. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:12, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

    Just to clarify, this is referring to the names of the template pages. People don't usually see those, but it's probably a good idea to be more descriptive there. I've now changed the names: Template:License Terraria source file and Template:License Terraria screenshot or derivative work. Equazcion (talk) 02:29, 1 Dec 2017 (UTC)
    O wow, I wasn't expecting such a fast response and change. Thanks for that. Sorry that I wasn't being clear that I was referring to the Template names. Anyways, the name and description will better fit what Terraria other was intended for when it was made. I'll move the Category:Terraria images other to be consistent with this change. Thanks again Equazcion!– ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:36, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

    Exclusive2... corruption/crimson?[edit source]

    Do people here think it would it be worthwhile to extend the exclusive/exclusive2 templates, to include items or mobs that require Crimson or Corruption materials/biomes? --MentalMouse42 (talk) 22:29, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

    It would be time-consuming, but it may work. We’ll need some other opinions first, though. Also, {{exclusive2}} relies on {{exclusive}}, so modifying {{exclusive}} would get most of the work done. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:23, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
    Well, certainly changing the templates themselves would be easy. It's just that then we'd have a new expectation for pages and links to be so-marked, and it would take a while for people to get around to covering all the affected pages. Given that I myself wouldn't be taking responsibility for "mark all the pages" (as usual I'd be updating stuff as I happened to pass a page, or when I was bored), I was asking whether the other heavy editors think it would be worth the trouble of opening that can of herplings. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 15:20, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
    One idea I just came up with is that we may be able to add the Corruption and Crimson functionality in one go when we add Expert mode Only functionality (which we’re working on). Once we’ve got Expert mode Only figured out, Crimson and Corruption will be figured out —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 23:20, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
    Kind of diagonal to that, it occurred to me that Crimson/Corruption could simply be generalized to "biome". That would also let us mark items with other biome affinities (Jungle, etc) while we're at it, which may be convenient for future inquirers. (For example, people could then sort the List of weapons by biome.) --MentalMouse42 (talk) 16:14, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
    The main reason to add Crimson/Corruption is because only one appears per world, making them "exclusive". A message saying "this item is only available in corrupt worlds" would let readers know that a certain item would be impossible to get, but a message saying "this item is available only in the snow biome" is much less helpful. Categorizing items by biome affinity might be handy, but when items are unique to a certain biome, they're usually noted on the biome's content page already. – KM100 (talk) 07:40, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
    Fair enough -- I'd been thinking about the infobox data and thought that if item/enemy data got "biome", exclusive/2 could make use of it. But on consideration, that just entangles two template systems, which are currently independent (afaik) and individually quite complex enough. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 09:20, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

    Forums page[edit source]

    I started creating a page about the forums. Is it a good idea to continue? You can view what I started here: User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Official Terraria ForumsReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:17, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

    I think this is a great idea, and once we get other opinions, I’d say go ahead. Also, make sure to add a link somehow to the Terraria page before you do so —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:26, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for the support. I can definitely add a link to the Terraria page. I also have the logo and all of the remaining background images downloaded form the site and to upload here when ready. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:33, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
    I went ahead and finished the page and added it. (part of it was for testing purposes). I figured that if it is decided it is unneeded, it could always be deleted. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 03:27, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

    More editing errors (most likely not Amazon icon.gifAWS) on Userspace[edit source]

    New issues[edit source]

    It appears I am having more login errors similar to the one from ~2 months ago. However, upon clearing cookies, it appears it has not fixed the login rejection (when it goes in an infinite loop of Special:Login —> Gamepedia.com/login —> Special:Login etc.) problem. Anyone have a fix?

    Nevermind, it appears my autofill was doing it. Unless I forcibly typed my password, only Twitch would recognize the login, not Gamepedia itself, receiving the no-info-given side of the login. Fixed! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 23:17, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
    Gamepedia was updating the Login System today so that was what probably caused your issues. I had the same thing until just recently. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 00:52, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
    That seems much more likely than an autofill issue, that was probably it. Thanks for the info! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 20:15, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
    No problem. I was about to report the issue when I got the information about the login system update. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:23, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

    Old/New Gen icons[edit source]

    With the release of 1.3 on PS4, I've been brainstorming possible "new gen" and "old gen" icons. I've been thinking about this icon for new gen, but I'm finding it difficult to incorporate the same style into an old gen icon. I've tried making a couple variations, but I'm finding that (a) they're hard to distinguish from the new gen icon, especially at a glance, and (b) they don't properly convey the difference between old and new gens. Ultimately, it's looking like the Terraria tree might not be the best choice for new/old gen icons. Anyone else have any thoughts/ideas? – KM100 (talk) 05:38, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

    How about an old joystick controller for an old gen icon? Old-Gen Console only.pngReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 17:48, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
    I like the idea. I replaced the icon with one that I think matches better with other icons, hope it's still clear what the icon is supposed to be (if not, it can always be reverted). Anyway, that leaves the question of what to use for the new gen icon. – KM100 (talk) 07:40, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
    I like the new image you uploaded. Is not the current Console icon going to remain for current console information? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:52, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
    Regarding a new-gen icon, one of two changes would have to be made:
    • A new-gen icon would be used to distinguish new-gen and old-gen data (e.g, Terra blade's damage would be listed as "95Tree.png / 88Old-Gen Console only.png").
    • Old gen data is left out of the main page and instead left in the history section. (e.g, Terra blade's damage would be listed as "95").
    The second choice would make it easier for newer editors/readers to manage, but would also make it harder for people using the old gen to get information. Ultimately, I don't know which one would be better, so it's really up to what other people think should be done. – KM100 (talk) 21:02, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
    I was thinking the current console would still be used. Let me show an example. Let us say hypothetically, that the Copper Shortsword's damage was 2 in 1.2, then increased to 3 in 1.3 and then increased again to 4 in 1.3.5. The infobox would look like this:
    Copper Shortsword
    Stack digit 1.png
    Copper Shortsword inventory icon
    Type Weapon
    Damage 4 Desktop Version / 3 Console Version / 2 Old-gen console versionMobile only.png / 7 3DS logo.svg (Melee)
    Knockback 4 (Weak)
    Critical chance 4%
    Use time 12 (Very Fast)

    Internal Item ID: 3507


    ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:20, 23 December 2017 (UTC) ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The thing is, the "One Terraria" project that Re-logic is talking about is aimed to make it so the code between desktop and console (and later mobile) is the entirely the same. Ultimately, there won't be any gameplay differences between desktop/console/mobile, so it'd be quite an odd choice to use multiple different icons in that situation. Obviously, there'll still be some technical differences (like mobile's touchscreen), so desktop/console/mobile icons would still be used occasionally, but in any other case it'd be better to use a single icon to represent new gen. – KM100 (talk) 16:27, 29 December 2017 (UTC)

    Ok, I understand now what you are getting at. I misunderstood. I will start brainstorming for a new gen icon. Thank you for clarifying for me. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:32, 29 December 2017 (UTC)
    I uploaded an image for current-gen some time ago. I've placed it in the Icons category. If you want to find a better icon, be my guest :). Using a tree to represent "One Terraria" is an interesting idea, but I'm not sure if wiki users would make the connection. I considered using a joystick for old-gen, but it seemed silly at the time...
    Question: Do we need 3 console icons, or just 2? For info that pertains to both old and current-gen console users, should we use 2 icons (a current-gen icon & an old-gen icon), or 1?
    Regarding "One Terraria", there will always be a delay between desktop, console, and mobile releases, therefore the various platform icons will continue to be needed.
    Many players are still playing Terraria on the old-gen consoles, therefore I would keep their info on the page (and not move it into the History section). – Ferretwings (talk) 02:31, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
    I would go with the new and old icons being used separately, even if info pertains to both to reduce confusion (sorry for a bit of a late response) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 21:07, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

    Old gen[edit source]

    I have created some Templates in my Sandbox along with an "Old gen content" article in my sandbox. Here are the links: User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Old gen content, User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Templates/Template:Old gen only Documentation: User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Templates/Template:Old gen only/Doc,User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Templates/Template:Old gen icon Documentation: User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Templates/Template:Old gen icon/Doc, and User:ReedemtheD3ad/Sandbox/Templates/Template:Old gen version. What do you guys think? – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 22:42, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

    I think it'd be better to update the {{exclusive}} template with old/new gen compatibility rather than using a new template. The other pages looks good, though. – KM100 (talk) 07:40, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
    Alright thanks for that. I was thinking about updating {{exclusive}} and {{exclusive2}} already. I know some work has already been done. Maybe Awesome_Diamonds could help out as well. I think I'll start implementing some things for preparation. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 19:00, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
    I can definitely help out with this splitting project. I have moved all pages pertaining to Old-gen consoles to have a hyphen in the title for consistency, just wanted to give everyone a heads-up. Also, does this mean Exclusive2 should also lose console capability, or should the console param become a redirect to current-gen? Currently I'm in favor of having console=y redirect to current-gen=y, but I need more opinions first —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 20:12, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for helping out! The moves are fine. I agree that the current console usage should continue to be what is most new and current with the old consoles being in their own special category. I even think keeping the Console Version controller icon for new and current content is best with Old-gen console version being used for the older stuff. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:12, 23 December 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for the opinion, and no problem for helping out :).
    I'll just quickly take notes of what I need to do with the exclusive templates
    • Add old-gen to exclusive2, eicons, and eversions
    • Probably remove current-gen param or more probably redirect it on exclusive
    • Add old-gen to allversions template or ask admin if protected
    • Merge icons somehow
    ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 21:02, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Of course, I would do these after 1.3 releases on XBox One, though. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 22:44, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
    And also one more note: since 3DS varies a little from Old-gen (like lacking a lot of 1.2+ content), old-gen will be incorporated separately to 3DS in {{exclusive}}. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 18:52, 22 December 2017 (UTC)

    That is fine, I have known from the beginning that the 3DS version has to be treated separately. It is still just figuring out how to exactly separate it after the mobile 1.3 release because it will be the only one with the mobile only content after that. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 18:12, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

    {{Icon}}[edit source]

    I noticed that Ferretwings made a cool icon template which makes specified icons (named in parameter 1). I like the idea of it being a standard icon that can be used, and I would be fine with converting the icon templates into one (like how we have been doing with converting Only templates to Exclusive), but I'm open to feedback and reasons why not. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 03:43, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

    It is still in its infancy, lol. I'm tinkering with it now, and will add more icons. – Ferretwings (talk) 02:34, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

    New boss battle[edit source]

    Have an idea for a boss battle with 3 giant worms.1 worm is made out of armored flesh, 2nd is made out of metal and has eye lasers, and the 3rd worm is made out of gold, and has lasers, and breaths fire, and has a meteor attack. 04:55, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

    I think a general rule to go by would be to remove the server if a google search doesn't return anything related to them. A website would also help if they have one set up. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 18:22, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

    Guide page histories don't have thank links?[edit source]

    ETA: The link dialog offered to make that history link an internal link, and then got it wrong. Unfortunately the obvious fix doesn't seem to work either -- I suspect the software doesn't like arguments in internal links. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 16:49, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

    Just combining these 2 questions
