Question[edit source]

What is a steward? I saw it in your profile and just wondered what type of right a steward had. I know what a steward in real life is, just wondered what it is here on Gamepedia. LordofEditing =(Talk)= 08:09, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

I don't think it does anything on Gamepedia (at least not yet).
Steward is a rank that usually means a person has bureaucrat abilities (admin + assign user rights) on not just one but a whole family of related wikis. Stewards at Wikimedia have bureaucrat powers at Wikipedia, Wiktionary, WikiQuote, and several others.
Gamepedia uses MediaWiki, the same wiki software developed for Wikipedia etc, and steward is a built-in rank in that software -- only Gamepedia doesn't seem to have made it actually do anything yet, even though I was able to assign it to myself. Equazcion (talk) 08:46, 10 Dec 2016 (UTC)

Rules grammatical errors[edit source]

Hey, Equazcion, I found 6 grammatical errors on the Rules page.

  • 5. and 6. 5 - In Terraria Wiki:Rules#Guides, first bullet point, add "the" before "individual". 6 - third bullet point, remove the comma after "linked," and before "unless".

These are the only ones I have found and was wondering if you or another admin could fix them?TOTORO01 (talk) 04:11, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

I have to disagree with all of those. Sorry! :) Equazcion (talk) 08:22, 13 Dec 2016 (UTC)

Okay well, those are all American English proper grammar corrections. Also, in #3 "Information that is not backed up by an official statement should be treated as rumor and labeled as such." I definetly think there should be an "a" before "rumor".TOTORO01 (talk) 18:24, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

The word "rumor" can be used in a manner similar to "speculation" -- eg. "What he's saying is speculation." "A speculation," just like "a rumor," would connote a slightly different meaning.
"Information" is a "non-count" noun, which can be singular or plural, depending on the context. In this case, saying "information ... should be treated as a rumor" wouldn't satisfy plural/singular agreement, "information" being plural and "a rumor" being singular. A couple of your grammar corrections above suffer from this issue, like "the" before "use" in your second bullet.
Commas go where pauses would occur in speech, which usually happens when a complete clause is followed by a condition. "We could take the car to the amusement park, if your sister isn't using it today." Those commas are fine, and advisable after a long clause. Your other suggestions above regard that comma issue. Equazcion (talk) 18:52, 13 Dec 2016 (UTC)
"If this condition is met, then something will occur." vs "Something will occur if this condition is met" These two sentences have the same meaning, but are structured differently. Short if then clauses like my first example need the comma, but the second does not. This is probably why it sounds/looks incorrect.
use of 'noun' is the subject of a declarative sentence, the is implied and not necessary.
Shadowsyllvet (talk) 19:27, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
For the comma corrections: A complex sentence includes one independent clause and at least one dependent clause. When the dependent clause comes first, it is an introductory clause followed by a comma. When it follows the independent clause, no comma is needed. A dependent clause often begins with a dependent marker word, such as after, as if, because, even though, since, unless, or when.
For the determiner corrections (minus the "rumor" as both would work): An article (a, an, or the) is a type of determiner. Possessive adjectives (my, his, our), possessive nouns (Joe’s, mother’s), and quantifiers (each, every) are also determiners. Single countable nouns usually require a determiner.
The above aren't mandatory, but should be considered.TOTORO01 (talk) 19:35, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
When the condition comes second the comma is optional, depending. That's why I said "long clause" above. In this case: "Trivia should not generally describe a game element's function, nor tips on using or dealing with it, unless..." The long complete clause benefits from a deliberate comma separation before the condition "unless" afterward. Equazcion (talk) 19:39, 13 Dec 2016 (UTC)
Okay, well it's up to you, rules are flexible and I can see how it would be correct as is.TOTORO01 (talk) 19:48, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Error in Gadget-ipInfo[edit source]

TypeError: Cannot convert 'wgRelevantUserName' to object, Unhandled Error: Cannot convert 'wgRelevantUserName' to object

As the gadget works, you simply need to remove the call error. — translated use Yandex.Translate !isNaN(wgRelevantUserName.substr(0,1)) — What this line is actually supposed to do? Ivan-r (talk) 20:05, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Which gadget are we talking about? Equazcion (talk) 20:11, 19 Dec 2016 (UTC)
Oops, it's in your title :) I'll look into that but so far it seems to be working for me. Equazcion (talk) 20:11, 19 Dec 2016 (UTC)
That condition is used to determine whether the name is an IP address. If the first character is "not an illegal number" (meaning it is a numerical digit) then the name is likely an IP address and the script should go ahead with execution. Which username were you looking at when you saw this error? Equazcion (talk) 20:22, 19 Dec 2016 (UTC)
Still making some tests found out the problem. The error only appears when the script is executed not on the page of the contribution. You need to force all code to be executed only on the page Special:Contributions. — Translated use Yandex.Translate Ivan-r (talk) 21:19, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing that out. Done now :) Equazcion (talk) 21:41, 19 Dec 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance! — Ivan-r (talk) 16:00, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

I changed the link to the map. I want to hear your review. ru: Special:Contributions/ (talk) 19:23, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Looks good to me, nice job :) Equazcion (talk) 21:32, 20 Dec 2016 (UTC)
PS. It looks like your version doesn't have the condition that checks whether the page is a Contributions page. Not sure if that was done on purpose, just pointing it out. Equazcion (talk) 21:34, 20 Dec 2016 (UTC)
I made a test page in a separate script. It is possible to reduce load size. (ru:MediaWiki:Gadget-execution-ipInfo.js Ivan-r (talk) 06:53, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit source]

Hey I just wanted to put the rates for the drops, otherwise people wouldn't know that you can get it from crates. The fact that you can is very vaguely stated, and we need to fix that. ZambeeZlayer (talk) 04:51, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

I agree, it should be mentioned that it can also be acquired from crates in addition to crafting -- just leave that extensive drop rate info to the crate pages (other than maybe the basic numbers for that one potion). Equazcion (talk) 04:59, 22 Dec 2016 (UTC)
Alright, thanks for understanding. I just want to improve this wiki's quality ZambeeZlayer (talk) 01:21, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
We appreciate it! I added that bit to Heartreach Potion, FYI. Equazcion (talk) 01:25, 23 Dec 2016 (UTC)

Wanted Pages[edit source]

Why do you keep the talk pages on the wanted pages list? I'm fine with you deleting the comments, but just curious why. --Tymon80 (talk) 19:50, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

The wanted page list is automatically generated and lists all red links that appear anywhere on the wiki (a link to a page that doesn't exist is considered a "wanted page"). All navigation templates are going to have red links to their own talk pages, when their talk pages don't yet exist. Getting them out of the wanted page list by creating blank ones isn't necessary and could cause some confusion. Equazcion (talk) 19:54, 25 Dec 2016 (UTC)
I know what the list does, was just curious as to why you removed the comments. The last part answered my question, though, fair enough. Merry Christmas :) --Tymon80 (talk) 19:56, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
No problem, merry xmas :) Equazcion (talk) 19:58, 25 Dec 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I was wondering, btw, I noticed that a lot of wanted pages over on the Thorium wiki are (placed).gif/.png because of the (item) infoboxes. Would you happen to know a better way of checking for the (placed) images without adding it to the Wanted Pages if they're not there? (I.e. swords don't need one, but there's still a wanted page for the images) --Tymon80 (talk) 20:06, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

I don't know offhand. I took a quick look at the infobox code and most of the calls to "(placed)" images only occur if they are first determined to exist. Someone would have to toy around with the code to track down where those links are coming from and possibly find a way to prevent that. Equazcion (talk) 20:17, 25 Dec 2016 (UTC)
Thanks to Game Widow & Alianin, we got it fixed :) If you want to fix it (I don't have the rights) copy everything from line 21 - 50 on the Thorium Wiki's Item Infobox to yours :P Happy Holidays! --Tymon80 (talk) 00:06, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Great, thanks :) Let User:Ferretwings know too as I think he's currently trying to find the problem. Equazcion (talk) 00:08, 27 Dec 2016 (UTC)
So, it's working now? :D I'll look it over to see what changed, lol! – Ferretwings (talk) 00:22, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
This is what changed. --Tymon80 (talk) 17:45, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
I noticed it's not changed yet, I'd do it myself, but it's a protected page. Or is there any reason not to change it? --Tymon80 (talk) 18:58, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
I'd assumed someone did it, but I guess not. I just did it. Feel free to check and let me know if it's all good now. Equazcion (talk) 19:28, 11 Feb 2017 (UTC)
Looks fine, thanks. All credit goes to Alianin and Game Widow, btw :) --Tymon80 (talk) 19:53, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Learning about wiki code[edit source]

Hi Equazcion,

I'm trying to learn more about how the gamepedia wikis work to help in the blockhood wiki. I was looking at the source code for the main page (of the terraria wiki) and found by example this:

<div id="mf-game">

. Where can I define classes for divs inside a wiki? I know only of MediaWiki:Hydra.css but by example mf-game is not defined there on the terraria wiki. Thanks for your answer :) --Leonord cursetalk」 22:00, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

You can define them in MediaWiki:Hydra.css, or in MediaWiki:Common.css (common.css applies changes to all skins rather than just Hydra).
Just because a div has an id= or a class= doesn't mean that class or ID necessarily has styles defined anywhere yet. Boxes on Gamepedia's main pages usually have IDs by default, just for organization purposes, ie. to make the code more readable. Classes and IDs can also sometimes be present primarily for use by Javascript (but probably not in this case).
You could define styles that would apply to your div by adding a definition to Hydra.css, like this:
#mf-game {
If mf-game were a class instead of an ID (<div class="mf-game">), you would add this instead:
.mf-game {
A dot means a class, and a number sign means an ID. PS. The only major difference between classes and IDs is that IDs have to be unique, while multiple elements can have the same class, so they can all be styled at once. Hope that clarifies things but let me know :) Equazcion (talk) 22:15, 26 Jan 2017 (UTC)

New Admin Request on zh-tw Terraria Wiki[edit source]

I'man administrator in zh-cn Terraria Wiki. I had sent Curse an e-maail to apply for combining zh-cn & zh-tw wikis together and they agreed, but due to some reasons (The simplified/traditional Chinese translation of game elements haven't been decided yet), we decided to put off the matter. There are many basic pages not finished in zh-tw Terraria wiki (such as the copyright page & admin noticeboard I've just updated), I apply for wiki guardian/admimistrator (either is ok because the rights are almost the same, and they'll combine together at last) to deal with some matters with administrative rights.--Ff98sha (talk) 13:32, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Alright, I've now made you an admin at zhtw. Equazcion (talk) 14:08, 11 Feb 2017 (UTC)
Thx a lot!--Ff98sha (talk) 14:43, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Expert mode only[edit source]

I just made a new template for Expert Mode only content here. Can I put these on pages that are about Expert Mode content, or is the page breaking rules or anything? Just want to be able to be fully confident about being allowed to make this template Awesome_Diamonds 20:56, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

It should be fine I think, but I think you should post this proposal at Terraria Wiki:Community noticeboard first, just to see if anyone else has thoughts on it. The only concern I could see is too many banners, like, this would stack under the [platform]-only banners, and things might look crowded. But if everyone else is ok with it it's fine by me, and doesn't break any rules. :) Equazcion (talk) 21:02, 29 Apr 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into it! I'll be sure to go to the Community Noticeboard Awesome_Diamonds 21:04, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

TALKING[edit source]

why can i not make a page i am not signed in but the wiki is checked by 136 people this month p.s no need to be offended 10:45, 9 June 2017 (UTC) JAMES LEDGEND

The welcome page you tried to create is unnecessary, as this wiki already has a welcome page here: Terraria Wiki. Once you've created a user account, you will be able to create user pages, which you can use to store notes or whatever you want. User pages can also be used to play around with html and wiki code, wiki tables, image formatting, or whatever. I highly encourage you to create a user account. You'll also be able to set up your own Talk page, where you can ask questions, and we can ask questions of you. Right now, your Talk page (User talk: belongs to ip, but if you change your ip address, that talk page will belong to the next person assigned to that ip address. – Ferretwings (talk) 13:53, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Question 2[edit source]

Hi Equazcion, I'm removed from wiki guardian and sysop (I have this 2 ranks at the same time) on the polish terraria wiki by inactivity and I decided to back to active edits on that wiki, so I have question. There are possibility to back to this user groups? So far I have alone with managing and admin edits, and that did't change, and and would rather not change, so I have also second question. That sysops and bureaucrats should be degraded for inactivity? Sorry If my English is bad, I'm from Poland. P.S. I already wrote it to Game Widow but he isn't reply for a long time - Marcino2 (talk) 22:04, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for contacting me. I just resumed your Wiki Guardian status at the Polish wiki. To answer your second question, admins and bureaucrats can be demoted if it doesn't seem like they're interested anymore. There's no rule about that, so it's handled on a case-by-case basis. FYI You should contact me first regarding Terraria Wiki stuff (not Game_Widow). Let me know if you need anything else :) Equazcion (talk) 22:16, 6 Aug 2017 (UTC)

UltraComboJago[edit source]

Hello, Equazcion! When my birthday came, I decided to make a new Gamepedia account to go with my new email account. I would like for you to use my new talk page and everything instead of my last one with the account Shinobi19 UltraComboJago (talk) 21:59, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Jungle temple[edit source]

My jungle temple has a entrance is there but it dosnt lead into the temple itself and you need the picksaw to break the bricks :( could you help me? Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 15:06, October 28, 2017‎ (UTC)

I know this is Equazcion's talk page, but I think I may know a solution. If you are able to buy a teleporter, you could possibly wire it up through the temple. Also, if you are lucky enough to have a Rod of Discord, you could use that to teleport into the temple since you already unlocked the Lihzahrd Door. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 19:15, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

My Signature[edit source]

I just had two more questions about the signature now that I'm finished tweaking it and shortening it: Is my signature still within guidelines in terms of display? It links to User:Awesome diamonds, but displays as Awesome_Diamonds. It says on the guidelines page that for User:BillSimpson, even BillySimpson is unacceptable.

Also, is the 256 character limit an in-code limit or visual limit (e.g. in code the sig is 300 characters but visibly it's 100). Thanks again for looking into this!

ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:08, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

The display is fine but the number of characters in the code needs to be no more than 255, excluding the time and date stamp. Yours is currently 270. Equazcion (talk) 04:56, 21 Nov 2017 (UTC)
Also for some reason your signature's date seems to be generating incorrectly. The signature above reads Nov 10 and it was placed here on Nov 21. Equazcion (talk) 04:59, 21 Nov 2017 (UTC)

Your recent edit to {{License Terraria screenshot or derivative work}}[edit source]

Good idea making that sort of edit, I was considering requesting that for a while now. However, this edit means that a lot of pages could get double-categorized (something that just personally bugs my OCD), so I may have come up with a compromise:
{{#if: {{{cat|}}}|[[Category:Terraria screenshots or derivative artwork]]|<!-- not specified, end. -->}}
ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:28, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

It also appears that you made the same edit to {{License Terraria source file}}, so would you be abe to change that, too? Thanks! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:34, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
We want new uploads to be automatically categorized. If the double-categorization is a problem and you have a solution that will still allow new uploads to be automatically categorized feel free to edit the templates. Equazcion (talk) 20:41, 31 Jan 2018 (UTC)
I unprotected those two templates temporarily in case you want to edit them. Let me know when you're done so I can re-protect them. Equazcion (talk) 20:42, 31 Jan 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Equazcion, I'll see if I can find a way for it to work —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:00, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Before I edit, which DPL are we using on this wiki (DPL v2 or v3?) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 00:49, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
DPL3. You can see extension versions at Special:Version. Equazcion (talk) 00:50, 1 Feb 2018 (UTC)
When I began using DPL just now, it gave me this error:
Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 3.1.1: Error: Cannot perform logical operations on the Uncategorized pages (f.e. with the 'category' parameter) because the $0 view does not exist on the database! Help: have the database administrator execute this query: `dpl_clview`.
Are you able to execute this query/fix it or is it something on my end? Thanks again for helping! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 20:39, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
This usually means a coding issue on your end. If you show me the pages and dpl code you're working on I can try and see what might be wrong (I'm no DPL expert but might be able to do something). Equazcion (talk) 20:42, 1 Feb 2018 (UTC)

It could, just not sure how I would use it. Would I just do a #replace ifcontains sort of thing and transclude the special page (or would that cause too much strain for the server? For now I’ll just put it in the sandbox and see what you think —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 00:50, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
What's your end goal with this list? I'm not sure what you're trying to do. Equazcion (talk) 00:57, 2 Feb 2018 (UTC)
My ultimate goal for this is to test whether the page has a category or not. If it has no category, the License template will categorize, but if not, it won’t categorize —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 01:19, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
I've put in a request with the staff to find out if this can be done or if there's another way to test for no-categories on a page. I'll let you know what they say. Equazcion (talk) 07:45, 2 Feb 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Equazcion! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 13:36, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── There was no quick answer for this. I was told to submit a ticket to the dev team, which I've just done.

Module:Redirect hatnote[edit source]

In order to make a proper Redirect template (like Template:Redirect), I was thinking of copying over Module:Redirect hatnote to the wiki. Would this be fine to do? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 19:59, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Making the module now. If there’s any objections whatsoever, feel free to revert at any time —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 20:07, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Ukrainian Wiki[edit source]

Main page already translated. I can take on the responsibilities of the administrator — TheNiX talk 09:40, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Before we go ahead with creating a new language wiki, Gamepedia likes to see that there's a commitment to the translations first. The best thing to do is to create translations for all the pages linked on the main page. Once that's done we can create the separate language wiki for Ukrainian.
When you do this, don't worry about infobox templates (those would need re-writing for /ua subpages to work). Just get the text translated. That should be enough for now, and we'll do the templates etc after the language wiki is created. Equazcion (talk) 04:07, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
Nevermind that -- the Ukrainian language wiki is now created: https://terraria-uk.gamepedia.com . Some extensions haven't taken effect yet but the script errors should disappear soon. Equazcion (talk) 18:53, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Shadowflame Knife Animation gif[edit source]

Hi there,

Just browsing around the wiki and came across the Shadowflame Knife melee weapon. Can't wait to see if I can farm one. I noticed your character, or rather, that you had created the screenshot on the throwing animation. I was wondering if you could let me in on what your character in the image is wearing? Love the hood/mask combo!

Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by ‎ (talkcontribs) at 09:53, 4 June 2018

New rarity files[edit source]

Hey, first of all, thank you very much for your support setting up the German wiki! It is mostly fixed and "ready to use" now, but I realized I would like to have the rarity level files translated. I tried making some on my own with the Andy font, but the result was not really satisfying... So I would like to ask you if you could create files with the translated names, if that does not take too long? The German names for the levels would be:

Rarity level -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 Expert Quest
German name Grau Weiß Blau Grün Orange Hellrot Rosa Helllila [sic] Limonenfarbig Gelb Zyan Rot Lila Regenbogen Bernstein

Account Change[edit source]

I've changed accounts again, this time due to Twitch badly migrating my account. *Another account put to waste.*

I am quite sure that this action is not a violation of any rules. Detected for Global AF - Something and Wall of Spam. I have used === to avoid splitting this into 2 sections.

User:Myfinalettempt2 - your edit was not in violation of the rules, it was just caught in the abuse filter as a false positive; unfortunately, that happens often.

New Image For Microsoft Store (Main Page)[edit source]

I know I could just add this onto the edit page, but all of the code used to construct it leaves me puzzled. The Windows icon isn't really Microsoft store, I created another version (the one that you can see in Windows 10.)
Microsoft Store - Updated.png

Could it maybe be added to the real page? (This isn't just the Microsoft logo, it is actually the Microsoft store if put over a background, like the example below)

Post by Myfinalettempt2, formerly Myfinalettempt.
19:20, 1 September 2018 (UTC) - Sorry about how big this looks.

Please ask me if you want an easier to see bag (on a white background), as I did just realise the bag is the exact same colour as the white background in the area I was mentioning.
Thanks, I've updated the main page image. I used an SVG instead for uniformity with the other store icons. Equazcion (talk) 22:15, 1 Sep 2018 (UTC)

2 Requests[edit source]

  • When I started out on this wiki, I had 2 accounts, so one account (Myfinaletempt) had to be blocked. Again, I have 2 accounts because now I own this one, could you block Myfinalettempt now?
  • Also, if possible, please remove my IP from my old profile page. If this isn't possible, *I'll have to live with it*.

Outdated Download Links[edit source]


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. 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. 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. 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]


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! 08:22, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

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 :( 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. 20:16, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

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)
