Outdated Download Links[edit source]

Heya,

I was looking at the page for Map Viewers and when I went to download TEdit, I noticed the link was outdated. It did eventually get me to the correct page, but I felt it would be much more convenient to have the correct link right there. Of course, when I went to edit the link, it was detected as potentially harmful which is totally understandable (don't want any malicious edits) but a little bit irritating. So, would you mind changing the link to reference https://github.com/TEdit/Terraria-Map-Editor/releases instead? You could also probably just remove the alternate link as it just points to the github page too, except the source code instead of the releases page which is less useful for people.

Apologies if this isn't what your talk page is supposed to be used for, it said to contact an admin and I couldn't really see any other way.

EDIT: To be more specific, the current download is basically just a huge redirect to the github page. It would be more convenient if it just linked directly to the github page instead. 92.16.137.171 15:53, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

I've fixed the main and alternate download links (the downloads page at the author's site and the releases page on github respectively). Thanks for the tip! Equazcion (talk) 16:09, 19 Oct 2018 (UTC)

Administrators of Polish Wiki[edit source]

Hello, I'm the only active administrator of Polish Wiki of Terraria for 3 years. And there is one user which works actively and have some good ideas. I want to make him a second administrator, even as wiki guardian, but I'm not bureaucrat and there is not any active bureaucrats. Their last activity was a few years ago. I would like someone else to be an Administrator. But as Administrator I can't give him administrator rights. I would like to be able to give an administrator to appropriate and active people without constant writing to the Curse team. Could you do this for me? P.S I belong to group sysop, but this rank has probably been removed, that's why I have this rank, but it does not appear on my profile on the Polish wiki and so it shows that I have only a wiki guardian Marcino2 (talk) 19:04, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Oxygen Not Included Wiki issues[edit source]

Hi, I understand that you are barely active there, but some time ago Darkpsy3934 did a bunch of (automated?) imports of templates there. They have not completed them or something else went wrong, but I found them quite broken and spewing a bunch of red links when used, so I reverted some of his edits. And then remembered that people panic if anons do that, and start locking all the stuff. Please take a look there. It's does not look maintained. 46.0.157.247 12:39, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. If there's a specific example page where something still doesn't look right, feel free to link me and I'll take look. Equazcion (talk) 01:57, 16 Jul 2019 (UTC)
Well, the most used notice templates still stay reverted so far, but {{Cleanup}}, for example broken (because {{Ambox}} was reverted). And there is a lot of strange broken things in Special:UnusedTemplates, such as {{taxonomy}} and other overly complicated templates from wikipedia. I, honestly, do not even know what standards for those things are. 5.165.63.102 13:40, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
I think we've got everything more or less straightened out. All the imports have been reverted or deleted. If you see any issues still present please feel free to let me know. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! Equazcion (talk) 17:13, 17 Jul 2019 (UTC)

Terraria vs. Minecraft[edit source]

need info for an article

Source code[edit source]

Heyo! Since the 1.4 update has released, I've taken a liking to editing the wiki. I've never edited the wiki before now, but with trial-and-error and a lot of copying and pasting, I'm able to create pretty neat things, like the Gemstone Blocks page, which I made 2 days ago :) However, I feel it would be so much easier to get exact stats and mechanics if I could read through the source code, but I've got no idea how. I've done some googling, and I'm completely puzzled. Is there and easy way to obtain the source code? Icysnowman256 (talk) 11:52, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Hey there Icy -- glad you're getting the hang of things! If you're techie-minded, you can obtain the Terraria source code by decompiling your Terraria.exe file yourself via the free decompiler ILSpy (google it and download the Windows binary). Or you can just join the Terraria Wiki discord server: https://discord.gg/XsbE9b, as plenty of people there have the source code or can point you to someone who does. When you get on the server you can ping/message me (equazcion#3156) and I can send you the source package. Equazcion (talk) 15:14, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Luck page lock[edit source]

Hello! I've come to talk to you for a potential lock of the "Luck" mechanic page. While I personally disagree with the mechanic, i find the griefing of the page to be absurd. This is why i request a lock to the page for at least the next coming weeks until this situation is resolved.

Squiddy 101 (talk) 22:30, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Looks another admin got there before me -- the page is now editable only by users with at least some rep here. If the issues continue maybe we'll lock it down more drastically. Thanks for the heads-up :) Equazcion (talk) 23:24, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Edit wrongly labeled as vandalism[edit source]

Hello,

I received a message while editing that told me to contact an admin for help. I'm trying to update the crate drop chances, since they are all incorrect now that 1.4 is out. I was able to successfully edit the [Ocean Crate] page, but I was blocked from editing the [Seaside Crate] page. This was the exact message I got: "Error: This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Size vandalism" So, I've randomly picked you out all the admins to ask for help, as the warning message instructed me to do. This is the complete page wiki code of the edit I want to publish to the [Seaside Crate] page: https://pastebin.com/CzGmBKN3

Thank you much in advance!

First I'd like to say, "Thank you!" 😃
We ask anonymous wiki editors to limit their edits to within a certain size difference. I will discuss with the other admins if this should be changed. For now, I suggest either registering an account, or dividing your edits into smaller edits, perhaps half of what you were trying to do (at a time). – Ferretwings (talk) 14:09, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. I'll try making edits in smaller pieces for now. Normally I would make an account, but selling my identity to Amazon is not worth it just to update some numbers here :(
40.142.190.37 20:08, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
Update: Unfortunately, I can't make updates in smaller pieces, since that now triggers both "Size vandalism" and "Large content removal by new editors". It looks like I'm at a dead end here. The wiki code at the pastebin I linked above contains my complete edit with the correct values for 1.4, so if you or another admin want to, you could grab that and publish the edit on my behalf.

Outdated dye beetle sprites[edit source]

The three dye beetles, like the Lac Beetle Lac Beetle aren’t updated on this wiki. So please will you upload the new sprites? --Superwill771 (talk) 13:09, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Thank you.[edit source]

Hey, you deleted a bunch of duplicate files I uploaded and also fixed the pet page. I greatly appreciate it and have been trying to figure out how to do all this wiki stuff but I think i'm getting it. I was trying to get the name of the file right but it didn't let me change the name of the old files I uploaded so I just kept making new ones and eventually I knew I couldn't fix it so I stopped. Anyway go ahead and delete this is you like I just didn't know how to say thank you besides here. - Laiserfish (talk) 00:53, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

No problem! (This page was a fine choice, there's no need to delete this.) Equazcion (talk) 21:20, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Armor video being messed with[edit source]

The Armor page has a twitch vod embedded, with an HTML comment explicitly stating not to remove it because it was placed by curse staff. Yesterday, Special:Contributions/77.171.85.165 tried to remove it entirely, which I reverted. Today, they have been changing the vod ID to various different numbers, including some fortnite video. Their last vod simply doesn't play. I have reverted it back to the original video for now. Since the HTML comment said to report issues with the video to you, I thought you might want to be notified someone is repeatedly messing with it. If these changes are supposed to be valid, I would have expected it to come from a logged-in user, with a comment explaining why. The absence of both makes me assume vandalism, but I leave that decision to the admins.

Awesomescorpion (talk) 18:44, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Looks like vandalism to me. Thanks for reporting! IP is now temporarily blocked. Equazcion (talk) 19:51, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Video on Armor page[edit source]

According to the page, we should report issues with the Curse videos to you or ReedemtheD3ad, and there's an issue (it's likely it's something on Gamepedia that's messed up, however). Despite having autoplay=false set, it still autoplays despite that. I'm not sure if it's something you can fix as, like I said, it's most likely something that we can't fix (although it might be, I've been wrong many times before). --172.58.175.71 19:03, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

I think I fixed it. If there's still a problem let me know :) Equazcion (talk) 19:10, 1 Jun 2020 (UTC)

Sunflowers[edit source]

So I’m an XBox One Player, and I’ve noticed that sunflowers are stopping corruption spread in Hardmode. I have the latest update, so I’m not sure if the info is correct on the Sunflower page, or if I have an anomaly. 174.241.10.191 00:43, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi Equazciono[edit source]

How are you? :D

Empress of light[edit source]

Hello i researched some of the Trivia that was removed and i noticed that it was right move i noticed pretty neat thing that was about the Sun Dance and thats where i should write entire Discussion

When i was reading removed Trivia i started research and all of it didnt match with info as neither apperance or most attacks didnt match with the mentioned radiance then i case with. ,,Might be,, and thats Sun dance attack when player plays expert mode or enraged sun dance attack are 45° Angle from each other empress shoot it 3 times and every time after previous the burst is rotated randomly clockwise.

So simply similarities are 45° Degree angle, 3 times burst and random clockwise rotation nothing more No apperance or Attacks arent similar to it.

Should I wrote it like: "Empress of Light Sun dance attack looks similar to Radiance beam burst attack from Hollow Knight"

I need to say i am not the guy who wrote that trivia before , i am just saying that i researched it and finding a proof. Should I rewrote it to the state i mentioned ? Thanks for anwsering in either way have a good day. Redybird (talk) 00:45, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Nominating editors for the autopatrol group[edit source]

Hello Equazcion,

I've noticed a few editors recently who are doing good work across-the-board and making the wiki a better place; I'd like to nominate them for autopatrol to signify that they are trusted editors.

  • Fistsh, who's done excellent work with source code verification and the technical aspects of the wiki
  • Dig494, who has done a lot of research into worldgen code and various other technical topics
  • 70sMexi, who does good copyediting and adds useful behavior info to pages

I hope you will consider this; thank you! -- Breathlessblizzard (talk) 20:32, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
