    Request to be added[edit source]

    Heya! I'd like to be added to the list of editors. My expertise is PC (mostly) and 3DS (a little). I know a lot about the general flow of the game, and how to advance through it. I've been working on rewriting/cleaning up the guide articles, so I've got something to do. Thanks for considering. Kwonunn (talk) 21:38, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

    Added. Thank you for fixing up the Guides. They have many small errors. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:47, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Hello! I'd like to be on the editor list as well. My areas are in old-gen console (PS3) and new-gen console (Xbox One). I've gotten to know a lot about update 1.3 ever since I got to play new-gen, and I'm currently working on adding a few missing things in the wiki. However, I'm not yet so good with templates and tables. Thanks! Diamondcat6746 (talk) 21:20, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

    Added. :) Thank you for your contributions. – Ferretwings (talk)

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Howdy, i'd like to be added to the editor's list. My main areas that i'd be most helpful in are Xbox one, and mobile. As of right now, I've been working on verifying information as well as adding some trivia I feel could be interesting. However, I do have a little trouble editing sources of items as well as tables. Thanks for reading. SnoopyFerret659 (talk) 22:56, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

    Added. Don't hesitate to ask if you have questions or check the Gamepedia Help Wiki which you can always find in the sidebar under "Gamepedia". --Rye Greenwood (talk) 18:39, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Ok so I helped with the Wii U version of the achievements page. I wanna be added because I have iOS (don’t play on it much) and Wii U versions. I don’t just randomly go search for info though. I look at a page with verify, or info contradicting me, or missing info, or people who want specific info about the Wii U version. I’m currently in a mage play through but I am willing to spend some time for this wiki. I am slow progressing on my play through because I like building and specific items, but I can get to Hardmode in about 1-3 hours minimum with a new character and world if needed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Theextroardinary (talkcontribs) at 18:13, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

    The use time on the Tombstone is wrong.[edit source]

    GraveStoneCought.jpg

    As you can see here, The Tombstone has the wrong usetime. Ont he wiki it's listed as 15 when it's actually 10.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Codangels (talkcontribs) at 21:12, 5 January 2020

    The item statistic useTime is what translates to the tool speed of tools, or, if not applicable, an internal use time. The actual use time, as it is commonly known, and referred to on the wiki, is represented by the useAnimation statistic. (This is not the only case of slightly confusing source code naming.) A good example is the Clockwork Assault Rifle, whose useTime, 4, is one third of its useAnimation, 12, resulting in the effect of three bullets being shot per use (the Golden Shower has a similar effect). See also Use time#Notes, and Module:Iteminfo for an explanation of all statistics. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:37, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

    Already bought the game[edit source]

    I have kind of a weird question. I have Terraria on my Xbox, but I just got a new computer that I want to get Terraria on. If I go to buy it it says I need to pay. Is there a way to just install because I already own it or do I need to rebuy it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.46.101.192 (talk) at 02:54, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

    Blood Moon Rarity[edit source]

    I Don't think the rarity for the blood moon to occur is correct, since I've had 4 blood moons BACK to BACK. :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by 162.243.58.162 (talk) at 20:07, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

    Separating information from different versions of the game[edit source]

    The Terraria Wiki is an extremely useful tool for gaining access to accurate information across all versions of Terraria. However, it can be difficult to interpret at times as a result of the version differences, and there are some redundancies. To give a few examples:

    • Terra Blade's sentence "The Terra Blade becomes available after defeating one (Old-gen console version 3DS Version) / all (Desktop Version Console Version Mobile Version) Mechanical Bosses."
    • Palm Wood's version symbols on every craftable item, and itself, despite the version-exclusive page heading.
    • "Spectre Wings" and "Ghost Wings" being listed as separate items in Wings.

    To give an example of how differences are handled on other wikis, see the Splatoon Wiki. Here is a page involving different versions: https://splatoonwiki.org/wiki/Splattershot And a page involving just the newest version: https://splatoonwiki.org/wiki/Splat_Dualies

    As you can see, they use tabs to separate the versions, along with different sections in the article. I believe something similar could be implemented in the Terraria Wiki to make information easier to understand. The majority of Terraria Wiki's users likely play on the latest version of the game (Desktop / Mobile / Console), but for those who play on Old-gen Console / 3DS, there information would still be there.

    I created a sample here: https://imgur.com/a/JQipguu It could likely be optimized to remove some duplicate information, but hopefully the main idea is clear.

    Unknown Easter egg?[edit source]

    So im just sitting here, messing around and getting farther than i ever have before (steam user name Venompool25) and suddenly, as im messing around at the homescreen, having just switched worlds, i click by accident and the screen turns dark, i panic for a second thinking i just did something, then realize the screen isnt moving, i let go it starts moving again, and i quickly click again and it stops, i look where im clicked and its the sun, turns out you can move the sun on the homescreen (I'm excited bc i cant find any information online and it seems to me no one has found this yet) Daddipool69 (talk) 08:05, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

    This is actually a known feature. It is documented here: Day and night cycle#Trivia (comes up when searching for "sun" on the wiki). --Rye Greenwood (talk) 21:05, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

    What’s the resolution?[edit source]

    I’m having some trouble with finding the resolution anyone know or know if it’s on a certain page? I just want to have my mod be the same resolution as the core game, so anyone know? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.214.104.119 (talk) at 20:44, 14 February 2020‎ (UTC)

    Server[edit source]

    I need help. My server says I am on updated and I'm on the old version which is 1.2, but I'm actually on 1.3 by the way I'm on mobile. And the server I want to connect to keep saying that it's connecting which it should already be fixed. Please help. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.97.52.136 (talk) at 22:17, 14 February 2020‎ (UTC)

    You will have to purchase it again, as Terraria console and desktop versions have some differences, the most notable being the ability to download mods. Phenomalix008 (talk) 01:42, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

    Adding Frostpark Boots guide link[edit source]

    I just added the Guide:Crafting Frostpark Boots to template:Guide/Content. It needs to be added to the other guide links on their respective pages.Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 20:01, 20 March 2020 (UTC)

    Biome Background images?[edit source]

    Is it possible to make a page or gallery with images of the many backgrounds of the biomes? --Superwill771 (talk) 13:44, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

    1.3 Terraria for ps3[edit source]

    So I know your going to judge me for having a ps3. I really want to play 1.3 because I’m stuck with the game being technically beaten once you defeat golem. It doesn’t even feel that good. The golem doesn’t end the game in some cool way which makes we want to get 1.3 more. I try to get a ps4 but I can’t. Can anyone help somehow?
