Wiki Banner

Hey, please go to File:Terraria Wiki - Banner 2.png and "upload a new version of this file" -- the version with the darkened shadows behind the text. Message me again when it's done and you're 100% ready for the wiki banner to go up, and I'll see to it that it goes up. (Also let me know if the image map has changed at all) =)

Heads Up

Hey, just be careful when doing image re-uploads like this one: File:Phoenix.png. Uploading that image means that Template:Items Requiring Hellstone now has a Phoenix for the icon of the Phoenix Blaster gun -_-. Maybe you just didn't have time to adjust it before you had to leave tonight though. I'll leave that one for you to fix.
Mathmagician ( talk blog ) 09:15, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

Also, I just finished explaining this to Dzylon and I wanted to make sure you knew this. Absolutely no cross-namespace redirects. Do not create a page such as Phoenix and make it redirect to Mod:Phoenix. Do not put [[Phoenix]] on a page, instead, write [[Mod:Phoenix|Phoenix]]. If you require an explanation here let me know. But there are very good reasons for this.

Hey Path, I guess you didn't see the page. Thanks to Math, we can now substitute the coin template using {{SUBST:cc|COIN AMOUNT}} or COIN AMOUNT {{SUBST:cc}}, which will keep visual editing mode accessible to people. Of course, you can replace cc with sc, gc, or pc. User:Dzylon/SigReal

Oh wow, that's a nice little edit ^ᴗ^ And no, I didn't see it, thanks for informing me Dzy!

Fan Art

Please visit User_Blog:Dzylon/Fan Art Page and offer your thoughts regarding the matters at hand.


Would be appreciate here: Terraria_Wiki:Admin_and_Bureaucrat_Nominations. Also, I told Dzylon this, but this week is finals week for me in school so I may not be around much (I'll still try to check in every day).

Wiki Images

Hey Path I just wanted to ask you if you were planning on making a terraria wiki image thingy (you know the one that shows up below the wikia toolbar at the top)??? Because you've done an awesome job on the new background and homepage pic and its a shame to leave that when it doesn't fit into the new stuff. Anyway its not important I just want to know :D  Furiion52  Talk  Email  01:47:50 3/14/2012   Furiion52

What you're referring to is called the "wordmark." Dak47922 is actually working on one, as you can see here: Of course, I have nothing against Pathogen making the wordmark, but we really should share the ability & responsibility of making backgrounds / banners / wordmarks with various people so that one person doesn't get to do everything. The current banner on the front page is by Pathogen, the current background is actually by Dzylon, and so I figured it would be okay for Dak to make the wordmark ^^.
Mathmagician ( talk blog ) 02:10, March 14, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the consideration there Furiion ^ᴗ^ Though I must admit, I quite like the EoC version of the Wordmark :P

Comments & Noticeboard

Hey, I have a couple of questions for you, go ahead and reply on my talk page please (or reply here + send me a talkback notice).

1) Do you want comments in other namespaces? Currently we have comments enabled in the main namespace, for blogs, and for the Mod: namespace. Are there any other namespaces on our wiki for which you would like to see comments enabled? Or do you think the current setup is fine?

Note: when comments are enabled, the associated talk namespace is inaccessible. For example, with comments enabled in the Mod: namespace, we cannot use the Mod_talk: namespace.

2) I would like to establish an Admin Noticeboard that people could use to report any kind of issue (vandalism, incorrect info on pages, disputes with another user, etc.) to admins and rollbacks. This would A) keep my talk page from filling up so fast, B) allow all admins to see/handle the issue, not the just one who got the message on their talk page, and also C) potentially make it easier for most people to report things.

The idea I had in mind was a single page in the main namespace, where the comments on that page would be used to report issues. Admins and rollbacks would check this page frequently, replying to comments once the issue had been taken care of. This page would be linked to from the Wiki navigation bar (and possibly other places, such as the top of admin's talk pages) to make it easier for people to find.

The content on the page itself would just be basic instructions for how people should use the page (how/what to report). It could also potentially include links to other things, such as our policy pages. Well, what do you think about the noticeboard concept?

Dzylon's nomination at Terraria Wiki:Admin and Bureaucrat Nominations will be wrapping up in a couple days. If you have something you wish to say, you should input your opinion soon. Since you haven't said anything, I'm assuming you've forgotten to check in on that page. Remember to keep checking it, as the next "round" will begin at some point, though I'm not sure when.

I see you got |value working ^^ I got scared that you undo'ed my edits when I saw you edited hermes and spectre boots xD ((yes, undo'ed is a good word in that sentence :P)) Grats on 4k edits :P Of course, if you go past hundreds of articles correcting |value, it kinda adds up :P

P is my most used smiley :P

About 90% of my sentences contain a :P.

\signature? do I even have one? Wolfzoon 12:02, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the congrats on both achievements. ^ᴗ^ You have no reason to fear, I only undo malicious or incorrect edits. It seems you do have a signature, though it's largely unembellished. :P Also, just as a little tidbit of info for the future, please don't put templates inside templates. Good examples of the simple code can be found here.

Hey, I read your blog post, and there are a couple things I want to talk about. I'll start with the template. First, this is a good idea, but I wish your blog post would be a bit more clear on a couple things:

  1. The entire point of this is that we don't want to pass templates as parameter values to another template, because that disables Visual editing mode. <-- needs to be stated more clearly in your blog
  2. The list of templates (Infobox-Items, etc) that you have changed needs to be given its own header 2 section. We need to know exactly which templates you've modified and which new parameters you've created in them. You could also explain that the value conversion works in groupings of 2 digits, that is, PP-GG-SS-CC, as I think that would be helpful to know. It would also be nice to see a usage example.
|BuyValue = 11223344

I do like this idea, but I want to talk to you about it before it's implemented and I want to see some more clear instructions on how to use it laid out. For example, Dak was trying to use it like this, and I think part of the reason could be because your blog doesn't state the things I mentioned clearly enough.

The second thing I want to talk about in private. Please see me on chat or steam when you get a chance. Thanks, — Mathmagician talk blog 18:47, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

I've revised my blog post and the CoinCalc doc so as to better explain it, and to explicitly state not to use the CoinCalc template in Infoboxes. I'm currently unable to talk as I'm performing maintenance on my computer, but I should be back in action within a couple of hours. I'm quite sad to hear that we can't implement the template fully yet, because it saves a lot of trouble, as well as coding space.

Dak has fine-tuned the wordmark to a state that he and I are comfortable with. It's over on if you'd like to see how it looks. I think it matches the background nicely. Unless you have any objections, I'd like to make that wordmark live tomorrow. Let me know, — Mathmagician talk blog 07:53, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Update info template ready to go

{{UpdateInfo}} is installed and ready to go. Check out the Dungeon page to see what it looks like, and check out this edit to see how I converted what was on the page into the form that the template reads. Basically you just remove [[ ]] around patch numbers, remove * at the start of lines, and put | at the start of every line inside the template. Again, be sure to check out the template documentation so that you know how the template is used.

Pages that are using the template already will display "v1.1" instead of "1.1" for the patch number. So look for that little 'v' as a visual indicator that that page is already using the template. Pages that don't have that little 'v' are not yet using the template.

Note: this template is not designed for use in the Mod: namespace. It is only designed for usage in the Update Info section of official Terraria content pages (main namespace). — Mathmagician talk blog 05:57, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

Except the part where you're wrong

A:) Hamaxes are not a tier B:) there's no need to capitalize every pipe. Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 00:03, March 28, 2012 (UTC)

Also I have fun. It's my job. Check the content if you want but don't kneejerk just because of an edit summary, or even pay attention to edit summaries. It's good practice to actually view the articles first, you know. Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 00:09, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
I uncapitalized the links, barring proper nouns. Check it again. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Yes hi I am a vandal (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).

The Hamdrax is a proper noun and is capitalized for continuity on its own page. I was referring to my edit to the hamaxes. Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 00:22, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
It's rollbacker. NBD. Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 02:32, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
There's also checkuser, block, protect, and delete functions used in any based site, but let's not count those. Anybody who knows how to edit a history can rollback. Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 05:07, March 28, 2012 (UTC)


Are you supposed to use {{welcome}} here? Only for people who actually edit? Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 06:09, March 28, 2012 (UTC)

That's really funny because it's not here. Maybe you should add it. Yes hi I am a vandal (talk to me baby) 06:18, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
Pathogen, this person has been blocked per the explanation I have given on their talk page. You are certainly right to be concerned about their actions. Still, please think about the things I told you in chat. When dealing with good faith editors, we want to be kinder and more patient in our reactions. When dealing with trolls, we don't feed them. In either case, the communications between you and this person went a bit out of hand. We'll chat a tiny bit more about this topic another time, as it goes hand in hand with something else I didn't get to tell you about yesterday.
Also, I wanted to let you know that I will be rolling out a forum post in Wiki Projects to discuss infoboxes and your {{CoinCalc}} template. — Mathmagician talk blog 20:03, March 28, 2012 (UTC)


  • <-- please check this regularly
  • <-- please share your opinion
  • My work on the level 4 navs will be resuming shortly. I apologize for promising they'd be done so soon... but they will get done, I've just been neglecting it a little. @Dzylon: If you have code for the level 4 navs you've been testing on your wiki that you'd like to share with me, let me know.
  • Was thinking about starting a discussion about what (if anything) we should do with our front page. The current "news feed" thingy isn't that great now that development has stopped. I think we need to look at some other wikis and take some hints about what type of content to put on our front page and how to make it look pretty. Our current front page is functional... but probably a graphic designer's worst nightmare due to stuff not lining up, banner not fitting perfectly, too much white background, links to content being so far down, gallery in the right column kinda sucks/we need more visual content, etc. What do you think? Front page needs a discussion about a design revamp? — Mathmagician talk blog 20:21, March 29, 2012 (UTC)

Money Stuff

Ok,you say the music box duplication trick is hardly legit. I have 40 platinum coins,but I got two of them legit. Should I keep the money or throw them all away except two? Thank you! :D216.239.69.207 22:06, April 27, 2012 (UTC)

Personally I'd consider the money null and void, but if you only just found out that it's a valid glitch, then it'd probably be ok to overlook that occurrence and keep it all. :)
