Success

I've gone ahead and closed the nomination at Terraria Wiki:Admin and Bureaucrat Nominations and granted you bureaucrat rights since no one seemed to have any objections. Congrats! As you're probably the most active admin and caretaker around this wiki, I think it's fitting.

Small unrelated note: in the case of this edit, Guest273 was actually on to something. It turns out there was a typo in Template:Infobox:Accessory which was causing the purchase from parameter to not display properly. I went ahead and fixed it (after you had already reverted the page). 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 19:11 UTC, Wednesday, 13 February 2013

Thanks Math! It's a great honour to become one of the B-crats as well as an administrator, and I hope to do the job well. :3
Ah, that'd be why I was unable to see anything wrong with the formatting. Thanks for noticing and fixing that one! ^ᴗ^ 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Wed 13 February 2013, 21:22

Infoboxes

To unify the Infoboxes of the Potion Pages, which one will be used? Template:Infobox:Potion or Template:Infobox-Potions?

Guest273 (talk) 14:17, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

As a general rule, all of the infoboxes on the wiki are meant to be the ones with a colon (:) in the name, so in this case it'd be Template:Infobox:Potion. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Thu 14 February 2013, 17:42

Flower of Fire

Oh, thank you very much for that correction of the flower of fire. I didn't realise that mine was Masterful. See, that's the kind of help I need. Thanks very much

Eater of Worlds!

Hello there!

I found an inconsistency on the Eater of Worlds page, but it looks as though the page is locked from edits. I figure you can probably fix it yourself though! On the right side of the page, the HP of the boss is given as 65, 150, and 220, for each piece. Further down on the page, in the first non-disclaimer paragraph of the Strategy section, the HP is given as 120, 200, and 300 for each piece.

On a lesser note, further down on the Strategy section, at the end of the second bulleted item, it says "...the total HP of all of the segments combined is well over 6000!" The number 6000 is the minimum HP of the boss, and was calculated using 120hp as the HP of head pieces. Now, if the first listing of 65hp is correct, then this number can be reduced to 3250 (aka 65 * 50).

I don't know which listing is correct, as I am still a bit new to the game, but I'll be sure to message you again if/when I find out! (Or if you happen to know, then that works too!)

Kkcits (talk) 05:17, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

Hi there Kkcits, thanks for informing me of these inconsistencies. Also, welcome to the wiki and the community of Terraria. :)
I've had a quick look through the page and fixed up the things you noticed, though there was one thing that you calculated wrong; being the total base HP of the EoW. This is calculated from the following values:
  • Head = 65 HP *1
  • Body = 150 HP *48
  • Tail = 220 HP *1
Total:
Thanks! I hope to hear from you again. ^ᴗ^ 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Mon 11 March 2013, 05:54
Yup! And thanks!
I can see why you would reach that conclusion, but I was following the calculation method found in the previous strategy section. That is, the minimum HP of the boss can be reached by only attacking head pieces, which means that you will face 49 head pieces (I said 50 before, but I have now read that the smallest the boss can get is 1 head piece and 1 tail piece, and that killing either piece will kill them both). I am only going from what I've read, though, so I might be misunderstanding something here.
Anyway, thanks for the quick response and fix! :D
Kkcits (talk) 06:14, March 11, 2013 (UTC)
Well, more so that the number refers to the total "base" hp, rather than the minimum (Otherwise meaning the HP on spawning it). :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Mon 11 March 2013, 07:23

I have an idea!

How about making a separate page about each one of the buffs and the debuffs? I think this way the user will get more information about them. Of course there will be more information about them in these pages.

Terraria on Xbox 360 & PS3!

Hey Path, how're things going? Hope to chat with you on Steam sometime!

Since Terraria was recently released to Xbox 360 and PS3, I've created a starter post on the main page as an announcement. If you'd like to improve upon it please feel free!

I definitely think we need more of a Starter guide for the console versions of the game, e.g. the game controls are definitely different from playing on PC, obviously. Unfortunately, I'm not playing the console version just yet (maybe in the near future?) so this will be up to other editors I think. I did see that some people started some new pages for the console content, so that's good :) 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 03:54 UTC, Sunday, 31 March 2013

Heya Math! Not too bad, hoping so too, I do plan to be on pretty often in the coming month. :)
I'm liking it as it is thus far, though I will continue to look into it as time wears on. I am also planning to buy the PS3 port of the game, so I will be able to offer my experience from that PoV in the not-too-distant future. ^ᴗ^
I guess for the time being, all we can really do is research and refine what we can to contribute to this (rather large) undertaking. However, I do look forward to adding all of the new information to the wiki! :D 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sun 31 March 2013, 10:46

Hello there Pathogen i was just wondering if you know how to fix the bug on xbox 360 that sends you to the xbox 360 dashboard in the middle of a joined game?204.93.60.17 19:46, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

hey hello, i would like to know if you managed the problem with the skeletron prime on ps3, the  one that just makes him disappear in the middle of the fight about  two minutes after being summoned, 

or if you just have some of the souls of fright to lend, you can give me your psn id.

thanks

Greetings!

Hello! Xasparaz Here. I've recently came to the wiki as I bought the game for xbox literally two just two days ago... I am unable to get Steam in my current state so I bought so I could finally play.. Anyways, being the N00b I am I came to check on things around here I found a lack of console specfic articles and Iwas wondering what was wrong, then Math came by and told me. I guess it makes sense considering it is only a week or so since it came out on xbox and Ps, Anyways, as I learn the game, and find new things I can try to edit in articles for things I find. For instance I though the dungeon guardian was going to immediatly kill me as soon as I went in the dungeon. However I walked down about two tunnels (good sized too) before it rolled out of nowhere killing me. Also, I read your user page, And I share the views on minecraft. Plus, Minecraft was well known enough at the time the devolpers started this. No one makes a spoof of an unheard of game. (I played way back in indev) So it's good to see someone else doing the same. I host minecraft servers alot in my freetime and plan to get another one up soon. you should drop by, perhaps you can teach me some tricks in terraria. I think I have a gold helm, silver chestplate, and iron boots, :> I feel like I should be further then that, No idea if that is normal for about 14 hours of playtime. I can get all diamond gear in minecraft in under 7 >_<

Note

Hey, just wanted to note that I made this comment. Inquiry: are you OK with just allowing people to add videos for now without the formal video policy? Frankly I think the video policy has kind of outlived it's usefulness. As Sannse said at the time, we should review it to move to a more open policy where everyone can add videos. Since everyone is pretty much doing that right now anyway... and we don't nearly have the resources to review every video... and it would just be hindering people who are looking for information to remove videos while enforcing the policy... do you think we can just consider that policy void/retired for the immediate time? And later we can consider a more formal approach? 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 03:54 UTC, Saturday, 6 April 2013

Sounds like a solid plan to me, I'd just been wondering about what we could do about the massive explosion of "unaccepted" clips. But yeah, I agree on the temporary void in that policy. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sat 6 April 2013, 09:34

Spotlight

Any particular thoughts about applying for spotlight again? I was thinking it might be nice to request a message like "Terraria is now available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3!" (and let Wikia's artists come up with an image). We'd just have to keep Special:UncategorizedPages empty and lower protection on the main page I think, like last time. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 03:47 UTC, Monday, 8 April 2013

Though a little informal, the only "simple" way I can put my reply is "me gusta". I'd be glad to help towards that in any way I could, including with UncategorizedPages and cleaning the newer pages up a bit. All-in-all, I'm in favor! 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Mon 8 April 2013, 05:41

Catch Up / Page Moves

Hey Path, how're things? Don't you graduate from school this year, if I'm not mistaken? :)

Wiki stuffs: When you move pages to blog posts like in this this edit, can you please edit the blog post and 1) add the "Blog posts" category and 2) click the Enable commenting checkbox in the upper-right corner. There's this weird Wikia bug when you move a page to a blog post, it automatically disables the commenting. If you can edit the blog post afterwards and make sure to resolve those issues that would be awesome. Thanks! P.S. There's a revived page move / deletion requests thread on the admin noticeboard: Thread:213641 — you're welcome to help out handling those if you like, all the ones so far are taken care of, but there's bound to be more.

Other stuffs: What's your favorite anime this season? I found that this season is surprisingly entertaining compared to the few previous ones. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 02:51 UTC, Saturday, 4 May 2013

Heya Math, not too bad here, how about you? Well, I was supposed to do so last year, but I stayed back for extra study. :P
In regards to the wiki stuffs, I'll have to make a mental note of that one, because I've noticed it myself before. It really is quite the annoyance of the software, isn't it? (I'll be keeping an eye on that thread ^^)
This season I'll need to catch up a bit, as I've almost run out of storage room on my 3TB Hard Drive, believe it or not! (Just as you know that I prefer to download the 720p/1080p versions, because my internet is just too slow to stream them. T_T) Though I've just finished re-watching SAO, Accel World, HotD and Seitokai Yakuindomo (I felt like a little bit of a marathon, ha!), I really do have to click back into the "now" of anime again. :P 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Tue 7 May 2013, 10:12

Template:Console

Hey, Path. On what article was there a formatting issue caused by the Console template? Can you take a screenshot? I'd like to resolve it without adding a clear (which pushes the infobox down). It's cleaner-looking when the boilerplate and the infobox are side-by-side. User:Dzylon/SigReal

Hey there Dzy, sorry for the slow reply. I've noticed that when the Console template is placed above the infobox in source mode (and a clrl template is implemented) it will push the infobox down. However, if it is placed below the infobox in the source, it will be located side-by-side as intended, while the embedded clrl template clears the text below the boilerplate box. I noticed the uneven layout just before, and if the clrl templates were removed from both, the text located below the boilerplate would have wrapped and been squashed in between the Console template and the infobox. Does this seem like a possible fix? (Placing the Console template below the Infobox in source.) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 17 May 2013, 01:23

Question about Template:Console

Hey Path, I noticed that you added a left clear template to the {{Console}} template here. I was curious can you show me an example of what issue this is supposed to fix? It's causing a problem where it pushes the infoboxes down lower than where they would normally be, for example, on the Tizona page. However, I don't want to undo the clear template if it's supposed to fix another issue I don't know about. Can you explain maybe what issue you're trying to fix and maybe we can find a way to fix it, but also have the infoboxes display at their normal location? Thanks, 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 23:43 UTC, Saturday, 18 May 2013

User:Xt0rt3r

Hello,

I noticed that you left the above user a warning for badge farming. As it turns out, he did the same thing a few weeks ago, but with categories. You even warned him for it (by the looks of things, he removed the warning before going about his edits today...).

Edit: He removed your latest warning shortly after I originally left this message. I guess he doesn't want to listen?

Just a heads up. Oscuritaforze (talk) 17:43, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Hey there Oscuritaforze, thanks for telling me about that. As he is allowed to do to his talk page whatever he wants (within wiki policies/rules - including blanking it as he wishes), I can't warn him for that. However, I will be warning him in regards to the earlier case found. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Thu 11 July 2013, 03:58

BloodyShaneX

Hello Pathos (I hope thats ok to say that) , I was wondering if the terraria update would ever come out, And if i may suggest something to u here, As ive been playing terraria for a while ive seen that Large world is just well small, Theres not much to explore its really not that big to me, Perhaps you should add something 3x the large world such as A super world  or so, I get that that just makes it harder to mine and all but it gives a sense of proggression and a bit of a challenge. That is all i hafta say for now, Ps Your awesome BloodyShaneX (talk) 18:11, July 13, 2013 (UTC)Bloodyshanex (Shane)

Hi there BloodyShane, thanks for coming to ask me. :) Sadly, we are only the wiki community here, none of the contributors (that I know of) are developers for Vanilla Terraria, though we do have a few mod makers around and about. I do like the sound of a super large world though, as I've found even the Large size can be too small sometimes. Thanks again! :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sun 14 July 2013, 03:08



Ok Thanks, Sorry i diddnt know if anyone here was working on the  game or not and u looked like u were XP, I saw a comment that  u wrote saying that they stopped the update  or something so  i msged u thinking you are a developer —Preceding unsigned comment added by BloodyShaneX (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).
No worries! It sounds as if the 1.2 Update for Terraria is coming along nicely now though, so it can't be too far off. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Mon 15 July 2013, 15:33

Polish Version Wiki

I have used "Google Transtalor", and several things can be misunderstood ...

Hey. I wanted to ask you about one thing. 1 - Can I create a Polish version of the wiki (any, it is, but I wanted to ask about whether I could make copies of the template, translate articles and add pictures here)? Dragoniar39 (dyskusja)

Hi there Dragoniar39, I see no problem with you creating a Polish variant of the wiki, including content from the main wiki here. All of the information here is free to use, though some pictures may need to be re-taken or re-uploaded with the correct licenses. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Mon 30 September 2013, 01:41
Thanks! :3 Dragoniar39 (dyskusja)

Video Policy

Hey Path,

I was wondering; do you think it would be a good idea to let anyone add videos, but then use Terraria Wiki:Proposed Videos for videos which have been deemed controversial for whatever reason (edit warring, quality concerns, etc.)?

Something like that just happened on the Vampire Knives page, and I directed the users to post their videos there, so I figured it would be a good idea to ask the other admins before making it official (and thus making the Proposed Videos page more visible somehow).

Thanks, Oscuritaforze (talk) 05:21, October 5, 2013 (UTC)

Alright, I updated the Video Policy with the new information for now (also made a note of it in the community message to the right of Special:WikiActivity). Feel free to change it/open a new discussion on it as you see fit; I thought it would be best to update it now rather than move on without a Video Policy for too much longer during the height of the update hype.

"Formatting"?

Hey, what's up?

I wanna ask you a question, what do mean with "Formatting"? You often edit something and say it was formatting. 

Thanks in advance.

Greetings,

Bijlenman007 (talk) 23:02, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Hi there Bijlenman007, that's a generic edit summary that I often use for a number of reasons:
  • A lot of the edits I make to pages are changing the formatting of infoboxes in the source editor
  • Also, moving images/elements around in articles
  • Changing layouts and the like.
I also use "Corrected spelling/grammar", "Added information to article", and "Revised article content" quite often, as they're usually more accurate than "Updated template(s)". 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Tue 15 October 2013, 23:09

Rollbacker Nominations

Hey Path,

The users Drkpanoz and Kida155 have been very active and helpful editors ever since they joined (for instance, Drkpanoz pretty much singlehandedly fully updated the Data IDs page and template, while Kida had a great hand in ensuring that almost none of pages that have been added so far have remained uncategorized), and both of them expressed interest in the roll of rollbacker when I asked them about it. (They've also both been pretty active in the chat, so I already gave them chatmod rights. Those rights have historically not required discussion to give out, right?)

My question, then, is if there is a place where users can be formally nominated for rollbacker rights? If not, would something like this talk page message suffice?

(Also, I can't remember if I've asked this before, but is there a way to simultaneously notify multiple users (admins) of something at once, short of copy-pasting the same message to all of their talk pages or making a highlighted forum thread? I'm just wondering if there's a way to do these things without spamming Recent Changes with multiple talk page edits in a row, notifying everyone of something that may or may not interest/concern them, or not receiving a response right away due to only asking one person...)

Thanks, Oscuritaforze (talk) 00:31, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hey there Oscurita, thanks for asking! Though my activity as of late has definitely been lacking in visible quantity, I have seen the great amount of work that both Drkpanoz and Kida155 have put into the wiki. I (personally) have absolutely no problem with multiple nominations, as in this case they are both well-deserved.
From memory, the decision for nominating chat moderators is up to admins and bureaucrats alike, depending on if they think one is worthy. For "rollbackers", only one bureaucrat is required by default (IIRC), as well as the addition of one or more admins. I won't place my support here, but will wait until the nominations are up so that we can do this the way all other nominations have gone. I will also make an effort to contact Dzylon and Mathmagician to gather their thoughts, as I'm sure they'd love to hear some of the new plans for the wiki "staff".
I look forward to seeing how this turns out. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 18 October 2013, 03:15
Alright then! I'll archive the nomination that is currently on the page and add new nominations for Drk and Kida straightaway.
(Also, if we're going to be using the Terraria Wiki:Admin and Bureaucrat Nominations as a more general space for user rights nominations, do you think anyone would mind if I were to rename it to Terraria Wiki:User Rights Nominations or the like?)
Thanks! Oscuritaforze (talk) 05:06, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, I was sure we had a page for Rollback nominations existing on the wiki, though a search turns nothing up. I think it may be a better idea to have a separate page for Rollback/Chatmod nominations, as they are giving access to a different level of control than the Admin/Bcrat "level". 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 18 October 2013, 06:25
Makes sense to me. I'll port the nominations I already made to that new page, then. Oscuritaforze (talk) 06:27, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
(I made the page last night, but it looks like I forgot to link to it here. Sorry about that! Oscuritaforze (talk) 23:08, October 18, 2013 (UTC))

Category Problem

This is going to sound kinda stupid but, even though I have my own wiki, I still haven't learned all of the editing stuff so I don't know how to change certain things. With that said I'll start with the issue. I was looking through the 1.2 Category page and saw that "Paint" has 1 C and 23 P. My first thought was, 23 P doesn't sound right so I expanded, only to find that the expansion was a duplicate so I expanded that. Turns out somebody blasted The page with a repeat expand that covers across the whole screen down to 1 character per line. I tried to revert to the previous state but with everyone playing the update (except you according to your user page) I couldn't find the edit in the wiki activity. I don't know how to change the expanders so I figured I should report to an Admin. I looked at the list and I remember your name from before the update...I think you helped me with previous issues so I decided you would be a good Admin to talk to.

[IMG]http://i43.tinypic.com/29g2b2v.png[/IMG] (talk) 02:47, October 19, 2013 (UTC)

Hello Alphajerico.
The problem there was that whoever created the Category:Paint page added it to itself, which ended up creating the infinite loop you described above. The issue should be resolved now.
(As a side note, almost all of the actual categorizing work done on category pages (such as the list of pages in the category and the cascading lists of other categories) is done automatically by the software the wiki is based upon.)

I made myself a template

Yo. I just made a small template that makes a tooltip like this. I would like to know the requirements for that thing to get in the template namespace, if there are any(and it even can get in the template namespace). Also I would like some help fixing the wierd line break it creates after using it, like you can see above. Latias1290 10:11, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
