Wiki tasks

High priority

Medium priority

Low priority

  • Move all the models from gallery to infoboxes and remove galleries (unless they host unique items)
  • Frequently Asked Questions and Multiplayer FAQ pages needs rework and brought up to date if information incorrect. (will do one more sweep before removal)
  • Improve the Template:Welcome and PZwiki:Awards, especially the ones in user talk pages and users to fit the current wiki style.
  • Clean up/create the following pages and add appropriate links to the userboxes and elsewhere when appropriate: Discord, Steam, GOG, Windows, Linux, Mac (Desura? Humble?), also clean up/optimize/unify/update the appropriate images.
  • Replace the last uses of Template:Notice by appropriate Mbox in language variants, then remove/redirect the remaining pages.
  • Update scripts at User:Vaileasys/sandbox 4 (for PZwiki:Item List) and pz-room-define-items-to-wiki (for Room definitions and item spawns) to not link to pages that will never be created.
    • Also update PZwiki:Item List missing images and red create redirects, rename the page to sentence case?
  • Clean up the project pages (will require one minor sweep; some pages are slightly chaotic at this point)
    • Add matching icons (Spiffo?) for project userboxes (may choose some matching images, but now every project has some).
  • Clean up the Spiffo page and gallery (WIP).
    • Optimize, upload and add sub-categories for Spiffo images (such as Steam cards and user-made artwork). Some Spiffo images are duplicated, but keep in mind there might be slight differences, e.g; File:SpiffoDO.jpg and File:ScholarSpiffo.png are slightly different. Some images are not present in game files and need to be hunted down in the blog posts and or be requested from The Indie Stone to have the best quality. Some will need some editing to add transparency to them.
  • Move item icons to Item_ prefix, as in-game, will require updating a lot of links. (Is it actually needed?)
  • Remove duplicate item icons (there's a lot that require manual searching, especially on the legacy pages, with spaces, item names, or prefixes: ANIMAL, BAG, BREAD, CAMP, CAN, CONDIMENT, FISH, FRUIT, INGREDIENT, LITERATURE, MATERIAL, MEAL, MEAT, MEDICAL, MISC, MOD, PAINT, PANTS, POISON, PREP, SEED, SHIRT, SKIRT, SNACK, TOOL, TRAP, VEGETABLE, VEST possibly more), see Special:MIMESearch (in progress, some work already done by Vaileasys).
  • Convert all GIF animations to animated PNGs, have the same time (1 second was preferred on Discord) and optimize them as well as name them properly.
  • Compare icons from old builds to the main version? (Originally was comparing from patch 0.1.4c tech demo).
  • Optimize, upload and categorize some minor images.
  • Add missing XP values for old recipes (that require old version to check): relevant search.

On hold

  • Make more responsive layout for the wiki on mobile (requires a lot of technical work, both for skin, main page and templates), but small fixes are added when found.
  • Dark mode for the wiki (maybe with a proper responsive layout skin? Loose candidates so far: Cosmos and Citizen).
  • Add a visual editor (technical work), currently only mw:Extension:WikiEditor is used.
  • The meta tags are what hint Discord and other apps with rich embeds what should be displayed in said rich embeds (technical work).
  • Automatically parse blog news, maybe forum post too? RSS? (requires new extension; technical work).
  • Serve SVGs and WebP/AVIF for modern browser as needed (requires some technical work; see User:Faalagorn/.webp test for a brief example of using WebP images).
