Hello. I just wanted to ask. How do I make contributions? I just joined the wiki not to long ago and I just randomly had this question in my mind and i have no idea why. I guess I just wanted to know how to contribute to things just in case? I don't know.
To-Do - list of outstanding work to be done or being done on the wiki. The wiki is in a near complete state and there's not that much to do until Silksong is out, but you are very welcome to suggest changes.
Please also consider joining the wiki discord here.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Hi and thanks for the suggestion. We used to have this, however this feature tends to create some broken links (in Special:WantedPages) when pages are renamed or removed. When I was a WM, I cleaned up 100k+ such broken links from welcome messages on some big wikis and thus I removed the link feature from the welcome message on this Wiki afterwards, to avoid any cleanup needed later (granted, we arent a 10k+ page wiki, but we have a small team!).
The page links in welcome messages also introduces another issue that when you view the WhatLinksHere of a popular page, you'll see a lot of Wall Message links instead of useful information (yes, I know this can be avoided by using the namespace filter, but still).
Hi , someone posted something quite inappropriate in the discussions page of the wiki, I have reported it but though you should know the username of the offender is "curt spurt" the quotations are not included. Thank you
Hey, so regarding the To-Do page, I was working on adding new tactics to Godhome varient bosses, and then, when I was reading over them, quite a lot of them already had a large amount of tactics and strategies, with the exception of S.o.B and Winged Nosk. (Which to both I added some) Would you still like me to add some more to each one or should I leave it be and work on other things?
Hi, if you think some of the items from the to-do list should be crossed off, please do cross them off (or remove them)! I think some of it might be out of date. Thank you for adding to those pages that didnt have enough info!
I would like to add a section to the Charms page listing the combinations and effects the other charms have on each other and effective combinations of charms. I have all of the charms so I could work on this quite diligently. Do I have your permission to do so?
I am currently in the process of making a unifed fiction wiki, and I require you and the other HK lore experts to help with it. Basiccly, the wiki will be a combination of all the other wikis i can find. In short, i need your assictance in making the biggest wiki on the site.
As DMSwordmaster said, the wiki only covers official and ingame content.
What you could be looking into is creating a fanon wiki. Fanon wikis are basically fanfic wikis from my understanding. If you google "Fandom fanon wikis" you get results like Mario, Descendants , Happy Tree Friends, Naruto, Spongebob fanon wikis. It would be a good start for you to have a look at wikis like those instead, and see how they're organised. Hope that helps.
Hello! I'm Sannse, from Fandom's Editor Experience team. I'm contacting you as the most recently active admin. Hopefully you can pass this on to others as needed.
One project that we're excited about launching is an initiative to pair newly registered users with experienced advisors (which they can choose from). These advisors would be available for answering basic editing questions and guiding appropriate edits, in the hope that these users will become active in the local community.
Why do this, rather than rely on admins and moderators? We've seen from research and experience (both from Wikipedia) that establishing a human bond with a peer "senpai" or mentor can have a better effect on the comfort of the newcomer, especially where the high volume of edits may cause the quick response of rollbacks rather than taking the time to walk new editors through their early work. While some communities do take that time and care among their leaders, we feel an additional level might put new users at ease and help them be more comfortable with editing. Ultimately, we feel like this project will either free up some time for admins and moderators, or designate them as approachable welcomers to talk to and guide new users. We want to see how effective this is on a relatively small number of communities and see if Fandom's results are consistent with those experienced on Wikipedia. If they are, we may pursue expanding the pilot program and perhaps seeking to build it into a core part of the new platform.
Here's what we would wish for your community to agree to:
At least one volunteer advisor, acting as an advisor and advocate helping newcomers. For the most part, this means responding to questions that newcomers leave the advisor in Discussions. Sometimes this may mean the advisor interacts with admins and moderators to address concerns regarding the newcomer. We have some advisors-at-large (those not tied to the local community, but available as fallbacks) already, but if you have ideas on who you might want to represent you in this role (or if you'd like to do so yourself!), feel free to contact me on my Wall.
Discussions / Feeds. Your community must have this active for the current solution to work. This is the primary method in which advisors have open communication with the users that choose them. We also recommend a Feeds channel of “Help Desk” where the communications can be placed, if you do not have a similar channel.
A change to your Welcome Messages to allow a method where a newcomer can choose an advisor. If you are currently participating in the MyDashboard program, there will be a card there to interact with an advisor.
We are testing this for the next two months, and will see what the future of the program is thereafter. Is this a program you would feel comfortable with placing on your community?
Hi, after discussion with the rest of the wiki team, we decided that we do not wish to take part in this program. We're already welcoming newcomers with links to our Editing Guidelines andRules of Conduct, and encourage them to join the Wiki Discord server on which we have further channels for both teaching basics of editing and offering help to new editors. We feel that we are already well-situated for teaching and advising new editors in our current setup.
