    Request to be added[edit source]

    Hello. I am a long time player of Terraria Desktop, and I have much experience with it. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help update the wiki with new and changed items and features from the 1.4 update. I have already been working on updating the upcoming features with new information, and I would be glad to continue to quickly bring out accurate update information. Fireboltthecoolcat (talk) 23:14, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Hi, I'd like to be added to the editors list. I've been helping around the wiki recently creating item pages, copyediting, and reporting vandalism. I play Desktop and have basic familiarity with the source code, so I can pull up information about item functionality, vendor sales, etc without too much trouble. On the wikicode side, I've learned how to use a good number of the standard templates+infoboxes and I'm hoping to pick up more through practice. You can check my contributions page to see where I've helped out, or contact me in the Discord under the same username. Cheers! Breathlessblizzard (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    I've added you. Thank you so much for your help :) – Ferretwings (talk) 23:06, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Hello! I'd like to be added to the editors list. I mostly play mobile, but can readily test pretty much anything on the Console version (latest version, Xbox One), and will sometimes be able to test some Desktop things. I'll hopefully be able to be editing a lot more actively, and am currently working to achieve consistency, especially with the flood of 1.4 articles. Thanks for your consideration! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 17:57, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

    Added. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 18:16, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Hi! I'd like to be added to the editor's list. I have (what I'd like to think) an extensive knowledge of most Terraria Desktop version mechanics, as well as features and content. I've joined pretty recently in order to help with 1.4 content additions, and I helped to start adding happiness quotes for the happiness quotes project to most NPCs, as well as preparing to start the DPS project (to find the average DPS of weapons). Thank you for reading, no hard feelings if I don't make it. DanZeMan (talk) 12:49, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

    Banners Contents sections project[edit source]

    I wonder if it is a good idea to add enemy banners to the contents section of every biome and events page. Some pages like the Underground lack them. --Superwill771 (talk) 22:45, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

    Translating Pages.[edit source]

    How do I translate a page? I can translate pages to Japanese because I am Japanese-American, and I also have to re-translate a lot of pages because they all look like they were just google translated... (Laughs) Kurosan529 (talk)

    Hello! The japanese translation project page should have all of the information you need to start translating. --Eraloiz (talk) 00:27, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
    Much appreciated. I'm starting now. Kurosan529 (talk)

    How do I change the Item Info Box.[edit source]

    How do I do it? I can't translate it to Japanese this way. Thank you in advance. Kurosan529 (talk)

    Hi, the Japanese localization seems to be missing from some localization databases. In order to fix that, you will have to translate Template:Use_time/l10n and Template:Coin/l10n, add type and environment names to template:tr/db-ja, and there are some missing lines on Template:Item_infobox/l10n as well. --Dinoxel talk 03:28, 13 July 2020 (UTC)
    Quick link: Help:I18n & l10n for templates might help you understand the template translation system and the process of translating a template. If you have further questions, you can always just ask, of course. Thanks for your commitment to improving the wiki's Japanese translation! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 14:25, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

    Unobtainable Items draft[edit source]

    I’m attempting to make an improved version of the Unobtainable items page and have made a draft here. It looks and works fairly well, but one issue is that it uses collapsible content (using Template:Collapse top) which is opened (uncollapsed) by default on mobile view. The arguably large amount of content also makes me wonder if Template:Ajax should be employed, although this wouldn’t work with either Collapse Top or Tabber which the draft also makes use of. I’d like to hear if anyone has any opinions or suggestions to this. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 21:51, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

    Disambiguation style guide[edit source]

    I noticed many of the 159 disambiguation pages were lacking consistency. So to help out, I started a basic disambiguation style guide on my user page taken from the Wikipedia style guide and adapted for this wiki. Aside from the lack of consistency on the format, this was mostly prompted by disambiguation pages getting out of hand such as on Red or any other page with a term re-used in the page name. Disambiguation pages such as those don't help at all, and actually do the opposite of their intended purpose.

    The style guide draft can be found on User:Dig494/Disambiguation and I moved some of this message over to the talk page because of its length.

    Let me know of any concerns or improvements to change and when/if you believe the guide is ready to be applied to pages that don't meet the standard. — Dig494 09:33, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

    I think your guide is well written to the point where I doubt the topic could be covered any better. I also think the points on User talk:Dig494/Disambiguation are good, though I expect it would take some time to apply all of them where they are needed. For now I see no reason to not turn User:Dig494/Disambiguation into Help:Disambiguation and make it part of Template:Help/content. Lack of consistency is one of the main issues all wikis struggle with, and setting a standard for disambig pages is great help. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 15:25, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
    I agree, good work! I have moved the content over to Terraria Wiki:Style guide/Disambiguation (and also replied on your talk page). --Rye Greenwood (talk) 22:33, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

    Recording.[edit source]

    Is it possible to record my screen, then put it on the Wiki? I would like to record me fighting a certain boss, then put it on the Wiki. -Kurosan529 (talk) 13:00, 15 July 2020 (UTC) P.S. It will be in the page for the Japanese page for boss strategies.

    Videoes are in general avoided on this wiki because they rarely provide better info than gifs, images, or just plain text. They are also avoided because they often serve to promote content creators rather than the wiki, which is off-topic. In the event where you have a video which illustrates something well I’ll recommend the Help:Creating animated GIFs guide, if the video can be made into a gif. This guide also lists some recording tools for this. If it must be a video, you can provide it as link or as a file. Here are some examples. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 15:25, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

    Unobtainable item on the old version on mobile: Red's wings[edit source]

    The old Red's wings on mobile, which only could be added to game with modded menu, had infinite secods of flying. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smyly9 (talkcontribs) at 11:06, 16 July 2020‎‎ (UTC)

    Thanks for the info. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 15:25, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

    a load of walls have two pages for the same item.[edit source]

    is there a solution to this that wouldn't avoid deleting pages?— Preceding unsigned comment added by 150.107.172.175 (talk) at 23:30, 17 July 2020‎ (UTC)

    Thanks for pointing it out. The 1.4 update brought a lot of changes to walls in Terraria, and this wiki hasn't quite caught up yet. Issues like surplus pages can probably be solved with redirect and disambig mechanics, and editors like myself will eventually apply the fixes needed. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 00:04, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

    Biome background description page[edit source]

    I wonder if we could create a page that describes the many backgrounds of biomes? --Superwill771 (talk) 00:46, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

    Personally I'd expect info like this to be present on the biome pages themselves, but if it amounts to a lot of content I suppose it justifies its own page. In either case, making a sandbox draft might be a good start. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 19:36, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
    Yeah. Also, uploading all background assets in its category will also help. Though I wonder if how we can have the older versions of some assets. --Superwill771 (talk) 22:04, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
    Sorry for a very late reply (if you expected any). I haven't looked into this, but I expect there might be old version of Terraria lying around in the Internet which one might obtain older assets from. Still, I must admit I doubt most users would be interested in such assets, so I don't see much point in 'digging it up.' I may be wrong, though. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 23:48, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

    Dark Mode Broken[edit source]

    The wiki's dark mode is currently broken for some reason. Here's the error code I've been getting when I try to forcibly set it via preferences.

    I could not sign in.[edit source]

    I was signed out, but I did not sign out manually. When I tried to sign back in to my account (Kurosan529), but it did not let me in. I tried a lot of times, but still. I also saved my password, so it was right. So I just made a new account. If anyone can help me, then I would greatly appreciate it. Kurosan720 (talk) 23:20, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

    Hello, did you try adding -gpuser to your username when logging in, i.e. logging in with Kurosan529-gpuser? --Rye Greenwood (talk) 00:19, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

    Can't get into account! Help![edit source]

    Hello, it is me, Pispacedolphinmachinegun! I can't seem to get into my account since whatever changes occured! Please help!

    Sports page[edit source]

    Should we make a new page for in game ‘sports’, as there are quite a few of them now. The page would include:

    -volleyball -American football -golf -general pvp -capture the gem. I’d make it myself but I don’t have a registered account 80.194.39.234 09:15, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

    I now have a registered account and have started creating it 84.66.185.105 09:35, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

    Biomes and Backgrounds page: how to work on it[edit source]

    There is a page about backgrounds and ambient objects. It needs cleanup and expansion. There should also be a separate page for both backgrounds and ambient objects. --Superwill771 (talk) 00:17, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

    Images appearing as black boxes[edit source]

    Recently there is a bug that causes some images to appear as black boxes on pages. How can this be fixed? --Superwill771 (talk) 22:17, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

    Keybrand math formulas[edit source]

    It has come to my attention that the page for Keybrand uses math formulas. It seems that the formulas have broken down, turning into "placeholder" images instead of the actual math. Does this happen for anyone else? (Also, sorry if this should go on its talk page - I thought this could be rather urgent as it might affect other formulas elsewhere.) --2057clones (talk) 23:08, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

    It's a known issue on Gamepedia currently and there isn't much we can do about it for now. See issue hereDig494 23:22, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
    Ah, got it. Thanks! --2057clones (talk) 00:24, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
    Fixed it temporarily by just making the math expressions in latex, taking a screenshot, and setting the levels to match the wiki styling. I can't recall what the math tags used to look like, but at least there is something to see now. Awesomescorpion (talk) 17:27, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

    I had to change my account again.[edit source]

    I am Bobosigianan, formerly Kurosan529 (my old account was a "Pro"). I used "-gpuser" and "-fduser", but it did not work. Anyway, I hope this does not happen again. Bobosigianan (talk) 03:58, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

    Quotation template issue[edit source]

    The current Template:Quotation doesn't seem to be working quite as it should. While the quote itself will be positioned correctly, the quote source is positioned far right (image). Perhaps someone could fix it, possibly by copying code from Wikipedia's quotation template? A "quick fix" could seemingly also be editing the template to use an invisible table (example). NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 03:04, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

    I apologize for the late reply, but I've gone ahead and implemented this change. I believe the source being on the far right was actually intended though, since quotes are usually placed at the top of pages and will align with the infobox (probably looked better on smaller monitors). Personally I'm fine with either. --Eraloiz (talk) 10:21, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
    Thanks for your help! NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 14:30, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

    Should be fixed now, thanks! (Also, if you come across this again, try purging the page.) --Eraloiz (talk) 14:26, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

    Blocks Page Image Broken[edit source]

    The blocks page has an image that is broken, as it shows block icons, however some blocks are invisible or have wrong textures. 73.102.3.41 18:57, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

    Recipe or Recipes[edit source]

    Hey! Could somebody please tell me if the crafting subtitle "Recipe(s)" should be written in the plural form or not? The guide here says it should always be plural, but I wanted to double-check whether that info is accurate/up-to-date before making any changes. PuzzledKino (talk) 15:59, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

    In my opinion, that's still valid. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 23:49, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

    It's currently impossible to listen to the audio files on the Music page when reading it on a mobile device. The audio files on the table appear as just gray boxes with no kind of interface such as a play button. 193.210.229.161 04:57, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

    hunter cloak's page is outdated[edit source]

    hello! after i updated my game to 1.4.1, i noticed that wings and shields do not override the cloak anymore (i checked both). it is also possible that armor with large shoulders does not clip through the cloak, although i couldn't check. i would update the page myself, but for the life of me, i cannot figure out how the editor works.

    How to edit automatic item data.[edit source]

    Hello, I’m new here so I’m sorry if I missed something obvious. I just wanted to ask, how do you edit item stats that draw the information from an ID? As in, it’s using the auto code to get the item’s information from a ID. I was going to edit in the balancing changes to a few weapons from 1.4.1 but haven’t been able to because of this. Thanks! DigitalGoose (talk) 01:23, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

    Hi, this is a known problem that should be fixed "automatically" soon so ou won't have to manually edit all of these informations. Dinoxel (talk) 01:29, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

    A Credits Page on the Main Menu[edit source]

    I believe it would be a nice idea to add a credits page to the main area of the site containing all the names, pictures (possibly gifs,) and references found in the credits. Sofareader (talk) 16:35, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

    Obsidian Skull[edit source]

    Can someone with 1.4.1 add the new equipped sprite for the obsidian skull Vampyre77 (talk)

    References[edit source]

    When I was pispacedolphinmachinegun, I put a bunch of references based on a thing I found on steam. Some were removed and I was told the references had to be confirmed or obvious. How do I know if they're confirmed or not? Daybroken (talk) 17:23, 30 October 2020 (UTC) (aka pispacedolphinmachinegun)

    Projectiles[edit source]

    I was thinking of making a page for certain projectiles (mainly melee weapons.) Does such a page exist? If not should it be done? Daybroken (talk) 20:10, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

    I think you might be looking for Projectile melee weapons? Or Projectile IDs. --Eraloiz (talk) 15:02, 1 November 2020 (UTC)
    Oh I meant the projectiles themselves. Daybroken (talk) 12:54, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

    Pylon NPC Combination Exampels for Ocean[edit source]

    Hello,

    i noticed under the NPC combination examples that for the Ocean Pylon it is saying that the angler and the stylist is a possible combination for the stylist selling the pylon. I have tried this and it does not work on my worlds. I have to bring the angler and the golfer together for the golfer to sell me the pylon. On the NPC Page it even says the Stylist has no positive or a negative effect on happines with the angler.

    I do not know if someone has more informations about this. I googled it and some persons also have problems with this.
