  • Hi CTheDragon, I was wondering whether I could join the pet quest party!

  • Hi friend,

    I don't want us to forget about the project.  Perhaps it would be helpful to start creating a "wish list" of things you (or others) believe should be included in the tutorial pages.  That would help us decide on the number of pages and how to organize them.  Take care!

    • <grins>  Technical writer here.  Will be happy to look it over and give you a quasi-professional bit of feedback when you're ready.  

      I think, though, that you shouldn't worry too much -- for one, this is a community Wikia, and as such, anyone who wants to work on their Scribe Tier is welcome. As long as it's usable, it'll be fine - anything that isn't working will get nudged as people run into issues, like you yourself did once upon a time.  If we were perfect right out of the gate, there wouldn't be anything for people to fix!

    • Right!  I'm not suggesting we need a screenshot of every button and command.  But more of what some of us in information professions might call workflow or knowledge management.  THAT is what I struggled with early on.  We can certainly build up or link out to technical things, but that certainly won't be my strong suit.  I'm an organization, style guide, process person.  Somewhere between the forest and the trees.

  • Hi CTheDragons,

    I'm having trouble with the Insta-gator because the image is not popping up, and I have no idea what's happening below with the pets and mounts. Thanks!

    Best,

      Thanks

    • Hi @Yankees2004

      I have finished fixing the template for you. The Artists/Trello/blogs links are still to be filled out. (I remove all the artists names as they did not match the news page).

      Regarding editing the templates I noticed you were using Visual Editor to try and edit the template. I highly recommend when editing template pages like the Pet pages or the Whats News page to use source editor. (Click the down arrow and choose source editor). This will you to allow you to clearly see how and what needs to change easily. (With the Pets pages it becomes like a questionnaire at that point).

      The other thing I also suggest is you copy and paste from the source material. I noticed in a number of things that your case was incorrect. (Ie the page overall). These things are important as artists, writers, and translators use this information.

      Thanks

  • Hey, according to our admin corkboard, https://habitica.wikia.com/wiki/The_Keep:THE_MYSTERY_TRAIN._Puzzlers_Archive does not have categories, but it clearly does, since you added them.   Does it still show as not having categories to you? 

      Loading editor
    • Yes when I look at Special:UncategorizedPages I still see the category. However I noticed the last update to the page was 22:28, 8 October 2018. That is before my edit. I assume whatever cron job hasn't occurred yet to update the list and take into account of the missing pages.

    • Seems to be gone now.  Good call!

    • Okay, I tweaked one of the controls (https://habitica.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Wikia.css)  -- your name shows up in bold green now when you sign off on things and in change logs.   That's the one I can control - I'm still looking for the other one that I couldn't change.

    • Hey it appears I'm green everywhere now. Even posts from before!

      Cool! Thanks!

  • I put the text through a Polish -> English translator and it was talking about medications and dosages, so I got rid of it. 

    I have to wonder what makes people do that sort of thing....

    • Your welcome! Thanks for trying again. Made some minor changes. Check out my edit here to see what Joseph and I have done.

    • @Yankees2004 - Don't feel bad; it took me forever, and I'm still only at 95%! (I still watch for people's fixes and try to learn from them each time). Thanks for your help and your positive attitude!

    • Agreed @Josephk! I am very grateful you tried again. Myself it took a full year before I edited the Whats New page without a followup edit. I'm sure I drove the senior editors mad at the time with my enthusiasm. Your also welcome to follow up my own edits and correct them. I don't always get everything right either and very happy if someone thinks it should be something different.

  • Hi CTheDragons, I was editing the Avatar Customization to match up with the new update, but I couldn't find the images for the earrings and the headbands. Do I just take screenshots? Thank you!

      Loading editor
    • Give me 24 hours, unless someone else can find it before me.

      Please don't take screenshots as the Pixel Artists require the artwork in a "pure" form.... (I'll work on that sentence better when my English skills return).

    • P Yep, I'll try to find it in the Trello, and the Github, and with no luck, I'll let you do it :P

  • Hi CTheDragons,

    I recall hearing either from you or another user that there was an extention or add on that I could use to easily remove/export entire conversations from private messages.  I feel like my inbox making me a bit sluggish.  Does a tool like that exist?  I was searching through the list and couldn't find the precise thing I was looking for.

    Thanks.

  • Hello! Really inspired by you to help out the wiki, and want to help maintain it. Do I edit some pages that I think need a little bit of tweaking, or are there priority pages that need work? Thanks!

      Loading editor
    • At the moment most of the Priority pages are done... I need to review that. (Just not happening today). I do know there is lots of work to happen in the Costume Carnival pages in the To Sort section.

    • There are three main vectors of how to maintain the Wiki: 

      1) Watch the Recent Wiki Activity list, and if something's been done for an hour or so that's a main page, check the author's work for spelling and punctuation.  You might not always find something, but it's how we edit things. 

      2) Wait for changes on the Habitica site (News posts mainly) and work on adding the new stuff to the Wiki.

      3) Watch the Wizards of the Wiki guild on Habitica, and sometimes people will ask for help on stuff. 

      You can also try using the Random page function to read a page and see if there's anything that jumps out at you, such as outdated information (screenshots, menu descrptions, etc.) that might not have been caught.
