What's the best prefix for a handgun? (It's not on the Reforging page)

(sorry if this is a useless post)

T.T.T / Dan S. (talk) 17:02, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

The best prefix for ranged weapons is Unreal. Only a few ranged weapons can't get that prefix. Handgun, fortunately, can. However, I would advice for you to wait until you have upgraded it to Phoenix Blaster before attempting to reforge it to Unreal to save coin and effort.

Do you have any talk page archives?

While scrolling through your talk page this evening (trying to familiarize myself) I noted that you have 47, now 48, conversations on it, making it a little hard to navigate. I couldn't find any talk page archives, so... do you keep them?

Silver (talk) 02:47, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Path does indeed have several archives. (Go to the top of this page for all the individual links.) I'm assuming that he just hasn't had the time as of late to archive this version of his talk page.

Hey there Silver, as mcSwaggins has pointed out, they're within the second header on this page. I usually wait until the page size reaches between 40,000-50,000 characters before I archive it, and it had just reached ~55,000, a little slack on my part. This has now been rectified, however. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Mon 16 March 2015, 03:13


Sorry for putting the wrong info on the Sniper Rifle down. I was using the Reforging page for that info, which someone obviously screwed with. I haven't aquired the item yet, so I guess I shouldn't have posted it based solely on that. Will do more extensive research in the future. I personally hate giving the wrong info on something. Knowledge is precious to me, so it bewilders me as to why people like to troll and change stuff just to confuse the people seeking knowledge.

Golden Bed Bug

Hi Path. I've noticed that some people are having trouble with setting their spawn-point at the Golden Bed. I haven't had any problem with this on PC. I would have added a "bugs" section, but I don't know if this bug is console or mobile related.

I just wanted to give a heads-up so this can be looked into.

Hooks' "bug"

Concerning your recent edit, isn't it about time we recognize it as a fun feature, rather than a bug? Even if it was originally an anomaly, it is one that the developers have no intention of fixing, considering how long it has remained in the game. Just me opinion.

Talking with Thelegomannick

im not trying to be mean with comments the terra blade thing is just a thing in my opinion and as well as the platinum coins if im being mean to anyone I cant know unless they can reply back soon im sorry if im being mean I just want to talk like others on this wiki {{SUBST:Thelegomannick/Sig}} 00:38, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there Thelegomannick, as long as you understand, that's ok. We just prefer an overall positive attitude to be assumed when interacting with other users on the wiki; whereas your comments were either leaning towards negative, or just did not contain any info that needed to be commented. An easy way to judge if your comment would sit in the "OK" category would be reading it back to yourself and imagining that the person you're writing it in response to is actually yourself (meaning the order is reversed), and seeing if it feels in any way negative when you imagine the comment you're writing being targeted at you. Thanks for your swift response though, and feel free to contact me with any more questions. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Tue 2 June 2015, 01:02

About the Hero's Outfit correction

Sorry if I sound a bit rude, but I am pretty sure purple thread is made at an alchemy station. I play console version and the recipe for purple thread is 3 mushroom grass seeds at an alchemy station, not a loom. Bluedood128 (talk) 02:03, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

My mistake in not noticing it was referring to Purple Thread. Usually that kind of extra crafting info is not included in pages as it bloats the size and is too roundabout to keep in several places, rather than just the proper location. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sat 13 June 2015, 02:07

Changing the "NPC" to "mob" wasn't a mistake, but removing nearly an entire page's worth of info certainly was. You can see what you did on your edit here.

Hello Path,

I have a question regarding the page footers. Specifically where it says, "Announcement: As of 1 July 2013, anonymous users will not be able to edit or comment on the Terraria Wiki due to a change in Wikia policy. Please remember to create an account and login to edit and comment – it only takes a moment. You must be 13 years or older to register." (An example can be seen on the Yellow Paint page).

I have been searching around on how to do this, but I have not been able to find any information. Would you be able to point me in the right direction? I've searching through extensions, different Media Wiki add-ons, wiki CSS, and I still can't seem to find how to put a message in that specific location. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Hey there, Awesome.
The page where you want to add your comment header will be this one: MediaWiki:Oasis-comments-header.
I imagine that, for your own wiki, it should be as simple as accessing that specific MediaWiki page and adding whatever you want to appear there to the page, then publishing it. It's been awhile since I've created something like this, though, so I might be wrong. :P
Correct me if I'm wrong, Path.

Orange Bloodroot

pathogen im sorry to ask you but are the orange bloodroots broken because I play the console 360 and well Its impossible to find them is their a pic of one on a players map —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fppritp (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Hi Fppritp, after some further research it seems that the Orange Bloodroot is glitched on (at least) the Xbox 360 version, and does not spawn at all. I am unsure when this is going to be (if it hasn't already) fixed, but the only reliable way to tell in-game is to play the same world for extended periods of time with the right setup for Bloodroot growing underground. (Underground corridors that are three-high, but have torches or some other background item on the bottom block.) Feel free to test this out and let me know how it goes! 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Wed 24 June 2015, 02:30

Drop rates

Just a quick question where do you find the Moon lords drop chances inside the games coding. Kind regards --TerrariaDude234 (talk) 01:40, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

You need to decompile the game's code from scratch using a program like ILSpy. It's not a simple task. I'll enclose a couple of screenshots to show my meaning.
Working out the drop chances from this info doesn't take too much, however without experience in the area it can be quite daunting. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Thu 2 July 2015, 02:20

Wiki Navigation

Hey, I could have sworn I asked about this before but I've since forgotten. Do you think you could direct me to the pieces of code/css that allow you to add the fourth-level submenus in this wiki's navigation? Like Basics > Environments > Underground > Dirt Layer. I attempted it before on my own wiki from some google'd up codes but could never get it to work. If you could help, that would be great!

Thanks, Kida155 (talk) 05:22, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

Heya Kida, seems that this here might be the code you're looking for? It took me a while to remember how it was implemented (Called through Common.js) but once I remembered that, just backtracking is easy. It seems to be self-explanatory in its function, through comparing it with our subnavs. Pretty sure this is what you wanted though. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sat 11 July 2015, 05:41
Well that's definitely the code! I tried it out and it... halfway works? Here's the wiki I'm testing it on, the only example is under Istaria > Crafting. Trying to get Buildings and Dragon Buildings to nest under Construction, but it failed pretty spectacularly, haha. It's odd because I pretty much copy/pasted everything word for word and it just doesn't cooperate. Even tried taking a couple more .js pages just in case I missed something and it's still no good. :c Hopefully you can see what I'm missing? Kida155 (talk) 15:15, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

Having made the DPS Meter page only a couple of days ago, I know it is not listed as what the travelling merchant sells at the bottom of pages having a table listing all NPC's and what they sell so if you could get your bot to add that, it would be great ☺


Hi the pathogen. Do you believe that the Lunatic Cultist should have an exclusive item for Expert Mode. Perhaps an accessory that will summon 2 copies of your character every 26 seconds. The copies of your character will stand infront and behind you. They will have 175 health and 6 defense. They will not attack the enemy. Your attacks go through them. The enemies will be tricked and attack the clones.

Also do you believe the Celestial Events pillars should have an event progress bar that tells you how much percent you are from the shield going down. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TerrariaDude234 (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Hi there TerrariaDude, honestly I do think that the Lunatic Cultist should have some kind of exclusive drop, as apart from the Lunar Pillars dropping their respective fragments, they do not have exclusive drops either, despite taking so long to take down. I'm unsure of what exactly would be a good drop for this boss in particular, but it does seem lacking that it hasn't been given one yet (apart from the Mask, of course). Feel free to offer a suggestion over on the forums though, as I'm sure we're not alone in this opinion. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 17 July 2015, 21:42

Regarding Kinshra Slave

Dunno if you seen it or naw, but this user requested to be unblocked. Their apology seems pretty genuine, so it might be worth giving them another chance. I see that the block is only a day long, though, so it's probably not a big deal.

Drop Section of the Monster Infobox

Hey again Path! I've been working on the Istaria wiki lately, and found myself in need of a feature similar to the drops section of the Template:Infobox:Monster, but that code confuses me to no end when I look at it, haha. I mostly just need to know how to get it without the drop chance percentage part, just the whole: DropName, DropName, DropName, and having it put into a plain list with a line break where each comma is rather than new table cells. Hopefully you could give a simple explanation for that kind of code?

TERRARIA Idea (Please read)

Hi the Pathgon, I have an idea for terraria. It is a Mechanical Brain of Cthulu. It will be summoned by a Mechanical Spine that's crafted with 6 Soul of Nights, 6 Vertebrae, and 5 Iron Bar or Lead Bars. The mechanical brain of cthulu has a chance to spawn at night if it isn't defeated before, in which it will display the message. Its stats will change through out the stages.

First Stage

{Stats: 28,500 HP, 40 Melee Damage, 26 Ranged Damage, 50 Defense} In the first stage he will be invincible and will stand still. He will summon in 30 Mechanical Nerves to attack you. You must defeat all mechanical nerves to make it go into its second stage. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Second StageEdit

{Stats: 28,500-22,000 HP, 37 Melee Damage, 30 Ranged Damage, 28 Defense} In the second stage he will go to the opposite side of your cursor. He will shoot 6 lasers aimlessly at you then will go and attack you. After hitting you twice or after 20 seconds, he will go to the opposite side of your cursor. Then he will go and attack you by charging at you. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Third Stage

{Stats: 22,000-14,250 HP, 60 Melee Damage, 32 Ranged Damage, 30 Defense} In this stage he will hover up 25 blocks above the ground and stand still. He can be attacked and will shoot a laser every 4 seconds at you. Also every 5 seconds he will summon 5 mechanical nerves, and will have an maximum of 40 alive mechanical nerves. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Fourth Stage

{Stats: 14,250-8,000 HP, 37 Melee Damage, 30 Ranged Damage, 25 Defense} In this stage he will go to the opposite side of your cursor. He will shoot 8 lasers aimlessly at you then will go and attack you. After hitting you 5 times or after 18 seconds, he will go to the opposite side of your cursor. When he goes to the opposite side of your cursor he will shoot 6 lasers at you then charge at you. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Fifth Stage

{Stats: 8,000-0 HP, 35 Melee Damage, 38 Ranged Damage, 33 Defense} In this stage he will break off parts of himself exposing an eye. He will then summon 23 mechanical nerves. Then he will chase you ,shooting a laser beam every 4 seconds. Every 25 seconds he will dash very quickly. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Mechanical Nerve {Stats: 475 HP, 20 Melee Damage, 0 Ranged Damage, 18 Defense} The mechanical nerves will charge at you, swarming you. They have a 50% chance to drop a heart. __________________________________________________________________________________________ Drops

The mechanical brain will drop the following: • 7-15 Greater Healing Potion 100% • 20-35 Hallowed Bar 100% • 15-40 Soul of might 100% • 13 gold coins 100% • Trophy and mask 100%

Minor template question

I forgot how to make a template automatically add a category to every page it's on; would it just involve putting the standard link to the category within the template? I tried that, but it didn't work, apparently. Maybe it just doesn't update all pages?

652Graystripe (Talk - Contribs - Editcount) 00:26, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

If this is for use on another wiki, usually you just include something along the lines of [[Category:CategoryName]], though it has to be located in the right place. If you're simply wanting every page with that category in use to be part of a category, my advice would be to add the relevant [[Category:CategoryName]] near the bottom of the template. Here is an example of the end of the Item Infobox code, showing how it adds the page to a category once the template is present on a page:
{{#if: {{{material in|}}}|
{{!}} class="left" {{!}} Material In
{{!}} {{{material in}}} {{nomods|[[Category:Materials]]}} }}
The {{Nomods}} template simply checks if the page is in the Mod namespace before adding the category, only doing so if the page is not in that namespace. In the case this is on another wiki, the template usage there can be entirely deprecated, in favor of the following basic example:
<-- All Template Code -->
This will add a page to said category as soon as the template is added to it. However, Wikia does have some problems with caching from time to time, so said page may not appear in the category's list immediately. TCF-dryadsmile-emote.png
2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 24 July 2015, 01:04
Right, thanks. I'll add it and then wait for a couple hours to see if it works. If not, bot it is!
652Graystripe (Talk - Contribs - Editcount) 01:12, July 24, 2015 (UTC)
Otherwise another thing you can attempt, is to go to the page in question, then add ?action=purge to the URL. That should purge the cache and with any luck, show the new template. :) Might also be worth using on the template page as well. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 24 July 2015, 01:15


Alright dude. My computers ram is only 4GB and only 3.89GB can be used for tasks. So my computer cant handle decompiling all that code. Atleast it can handle the Item.cs file. Were you able to decompile the NPC.cs file? --TerrariaDude234 (talk) 15:04, July 24, 2015 (UTC)TerrariaDude

I was, and it came out to a total of only 2.13MB. Due to copyright laws though, I am not allowed to post the whole file to be read online. Also, I am still reading through other files to see what kind of damage the Ancient Cultist does, as he has four different damage methods that I can think of. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 24 July 2015, 20:30

Two users today have come on here and said stuff like "Why does this wiki even exist? It's obvious gamepedia is better!" One in chat, and another on the Shadow Armor page,

Should something be done about them?

IT'S TIME TO CHANGE FATE!!!!! (talk) 17:26, August 11, 2015 (UTC)




As I stated in the page's edit log, the primary focus of the wiki is to show PC information first. I never once said that consoles had 1.3, though the information added under TiberiumFusion's edit is very likely accurate for the items present in the console versions.
Another point: yelling at me will not accomplish anything. I've spent countless hundreds of hours learning the ins and outs of Terraria and the wiki to best provide information to the community; my 12,054 edits attest to this. I will reiterate; the Wiki was originally made for the PC version of the game, with cross-platform information being added at a later date, with the console, mobile and other information being placed secondary to the PC information. The Base Lateral Acceleration Multiplier information added to the Wings page is extremely likely to be accurate to the items present in the non-PC versions. Edits can be made to show which items are not present in the non-PC versions to cater for other users, however this requires interaction between the users, not an edit war.
My final point: continually undoing an admin's edits to the wiki without proper reason to will not get you anywhere good. This is not a threat, but a warning that you're hovering over the area of edits not made in good faith. If you have a point to raise, there's the relevant comment section on every single page, there's the forum, and there is also talk pages, the likes of which you have been remarkably rude on thus far. In future, please keep your communication to a respectable form, as well as respecting the standard etiquette of wiki users. Flaming, edit-warring, and placement of inappropriate-for-mainspace information will result in further action. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sat 15 August 2015, 08:52

Hello! I'm from the FCB Wiki. I would like to request to be affiliated with your wiki. Here is our wordmark.

Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by J.J. Chambers (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Hi there, when I originally noted your message I was considering this, but the edit you made earlier advertising a business chain gives me pause. I originally had no problem with the idea of affiliating with another wiki, though I must ask: For what purpose do you wish to affiliate with our wiki? We do not endorse advertising for any business other than Re-Logic (or the affiliated developers and/or distribution magnates) on this wikia. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 4 September 2015, 00:51


Well, it means that some of our character info would be on the FBC Wiki. That, and the FBC wiki would have a link to this wiki under "Affiliates."  —Preceding unsigned comment added by J.J. Chambers (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).

I do understand the meaning of affiliating wikis, I was asking you what reason or motivation you may have to have us as an affiliate. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sun 6 September 2015, 02:45

The Bugle

Hey Path!

I see that you are willing to help out with the Bugle, and I would quite like to see what you have in mind to spruce it up. I may just do one more issue (#60) and then give the Bugle a break for a while as I don't have too much time to devote to collecting information for it each week. It would be nice to go out with a bang on Issue 60 though, so hopefully we can put our heads together sometime! Let me know on my talkpage, find me in chat or in Steam and we can go from there.

Page Conflict

There is a new Christmas themed painting that the Travelling Merchant sells titled "Acorns" with the data ID 3055. It currently cannot be created because of a redirect from Acorns to the page Acorn. Could you fix this up? Don't know if the redirect can be deleted or not, so maybe if its complicated, then we can call the new page "Acorns (Painting)"? Thanks in advance.

It may not be nice, however you broke a rule and I was obligated to inform you and rectify the problem as an admin of the Terraria Wiki. If you still take issue with this, please feel free to leave another message. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Tue 8 September 2015, 22:30
4 things i have to say WHY i hate you.
1. thinking i broke a rule
2. thinking i am stupid
3. I am on more wikis than this wiki. You are too mean.
4. Also i don't like you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CutieHappy.Wikia (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).
  1. You did break a rule: uploading non-Terraria-related images to the wiki.
  2. I never said that you were stupid.
  3. Considering your total edit count on wikia is 16 (with 10 of those on this wiki), I doubt that makes a large amount of difference here.
  4. You're allowed to feel how you like about me, however that doesn't change the fact that I am simply trying to do my job, while you insist on making it as much of an issue as you can. Please consider this in the future. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sat 12 September 2015, 17:38
Well i still hate you. YOU CAN'T even tell me what to do. I got a steam profile. And also i use Gamepedia's Terraria Wiki if i have to goof around with TShock. Too bad u can't get to Gamepedia.                                                                      No seriously. Just, LAWL! —Preceding unsigned comment added by CutieHappy.Wikia (talkcontribs). Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ (4 tildes).
First and foremost, I can indeed go to the Gamepedia wiki, I am just not an admin there. I can guarantee that if you try to upload the same pictures to their wiki, they'll be deleted on the same grounds. By rights, if I feel that you are acting contrary to the wiki's interests, I can both warn and/or block you depending on the severity of your actions. Which wiki you use is completely up to you, however there are rules to be followed in public places. Please consider this, especially when you've been given the info you need to not have a problem any more. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Thu 17 September 2015, 08:16Too late. I just use gamepedia for TShock goofing times. Oh. And i got my own wikia. lawl.

Reply: Regarding Hard Mode

Maybe something of what you said is the truth(such as appears in "game code"). But there are still some doubtful points below:

  • Why doesn't it appear in the Werewolf trading card and take the place of "The second age of Terraria"?
  • Why it looks so like another concept named "Hardcore Mode" and would confuse lots of new game players?(Even after v1.3.1 the "Expert Mode" came out...)
  • In my opinion, naming it with some other vocabularies such as "wall of flesh defeated mode"(as it may look a little long, a acronym like "WFD" would be fine) can give us a more natural feeling. In fact, most of Chinese player do like call it "肉山后" which means "after wall of flesh (defeated)", and few of them call it something other which means "Hard Mode".
  • "Writing it in soure code" doesn't mean "tell it to game players". The source code is not uesd to public something. Imagine that if you are with someone whisper, why not use some nicknames?

When I edited them yesterday, I had thought for a long time. But I decide edited it directly finally because lots of my old question had no answer, and this question is more important as it would determine me how to define our Chinese wikia page. Sorry of disturbing you, but I am looking forward to your apply one more time. (123777tw (talk) 15:05, September 16, 2015 (UTC))

In response to your questions here:
  1. I have seen no evidence of the card itself referring to either "hardmode" or "the second age of Terraria", in honesty I have had trouble gleaning any more information than is already present on the page.
  2. That was a developer choice, not a player choice. While Hardmode refers to the current stage of difficulty in a single world in Terraria, Softcore/Mediumcore/Hardcore are relatively widespread terms that refer to overall difficulty, hence why they're applied to individual characters in Terraria, rather than on a per-world basis. (Also, Expert Mode was released in, while we are currently waiting for 1.3.1, which has been nicknamed "The wiring update".)
  3. While your suggestion is not incorrect, the officially coined term is still "hardmode", as is referenced by my screenshot of the game code from PC They are all present and have been since 1.2.
    • HardmodeClasses
    • The first is a boolean simply telling the game whether the world is in Hardmode or not.
    • The second is another boolean to help with the generation of the Hallow and Corruption/Crimson in the signature "X" pattern across the world; it is only used when the Wall of Flesh is first defeated in a world.
    • The third begins the process of generating the Hallow/Corruption/Crimson "X" pattern, also enabling the "hardMode" boolean permanently.
    • The fourth is a check method for checking the first.
  4. While it may not be "telling it to game players" in a direct sense, places such as the Gamepedia wiki and even the Terraria Forums (not to mention, here) are rife with references from both those who have decompiled the source code and directly translated the data onto the wiki(s) (such as what I do) or from developers themselves, all the way up to Red. You're right, the source code is not officially "public", but the terms used within it are.
As a standard, we like to keep the wiki as close to canon as we possibly can, including any and all misspellings or vocabulary choices in the game code. While English is the native language for Microsoft's C# framework and for the XNA Framework (both of which Terraria is built on); Italian, Spanish and German are three examples of "Included translations", where officially-added vocabulary is present. To the best of my knowledge there is no official Chinese translation, therefore any and all vocabulary choices are (in effect) user-chosen. If you can provide some sources (if possible some with English accessibility, as I do not speak Chinese in any way, shape or form) of an official Chinese translation, I'd be happy to change my views accordingly.
However; until this happens, we base all of our current info on a few certain or at least semi-certain things, usually in this order:
  • Developer-chosen or developer-sanctioned choices
  • PC Source code
  • Console platform info
  • Mobile platform info
If we can't get the info we need, we work towards getting in through these channels. If you have further questions, please feel free to ask. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Wed 16 September 2015, 19:49


Thank you for your Detailed reply! Yeah, as you said, there is no official Chinese translation. So defining the pages' title of Terraria Chinese wikia is somehow difficult, though we usually defining them by literal translating the titles in this English wikia as they are somehow in a "standard(as possible as they can close to the canon)". An offical Chinese translation is what we Chinese players expect. But now I just want to find out the truth and decide what vocabularies is proper to become our Chinese pages' title, and Ithink I have got the answer now - Both will be retained. And if you like, I would like to quote you the comments as the annotation of the Chinese page.

No matter whether you know Chinese, welcome to our Chinese wikia.

I'm not exactly sure what I've done to deserve that sort of response. Your talk page featured unintelligible formatting of which one part completely misaligned the entire page, I simply fixed that. Never once have I said I was perfect in any way, shape or form, nor have I hinted or inferred anything of the sort. One thing I will make quite clear; as an admin here on the wiki, my job is to moderate the user base's behavior and to moderate user contributions to the wiki. What you added to your talk page was counter-productive at best, and I was simply doing my job by removing the relevant piece of code. Continued flaming or aggressive behavior may result in a temporary block from the wiki, on the grounds of harassing users. Please consider this in the future. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 9 October 2015, 22:55



I am new to editing the wiki.  I created a page about the Twinkles, and I don't know how to get the picture out of Terraria to put on the wiki.  Could you post one, or point me to instructions on how to get pictures from Terraria(from within the program, preferably)?

NinJediCat (talk) 20:21, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

Hi! Extracting the images from the Terraria game files isn't a hard process in itself, it's explained in detail here, though I do hear there are new programs and processes being released. I prefer this method as it is simple and fast. The biggest difference between extracting NPC/Armor resources compared to standard item resources is that the items are single frames, while anything with multiple frames needs manual editing. The multiple frames are all stored in a single PNG file, in a vertical column. They either need to have the first frame manually extracted and saved as a PNG, or be edited together in a program such as Photoshop as an animated GIF. This is what I did for images such as GoldCoin Small. I will get the first frame of the Twinkles and of the Twinkle Poppers for the time being, though I will likely go through all of the Celestial enemies at some point, animating out the sprites. Thanks for letting me know, and feel free to ask for any other help in the future. :) 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sun 11 October 2015, 22:05

Portable Infoboxes

Hey, hey!

Just dropped by to check whether you've had a chance to see my question at the portable infobox thread JoePlay started a couple of months ago. We have a rare opportunity coming up next week in which we can offer you direct help from our engineers in Poland to implement the new infoboxes to a high standard and in a way that will involve less work on your part.

It'd be great if you could drop by that thread and give us an idea of how best we can help you reach your mobile audience better. After all, about half your visitors from the US — and a quarter globally — see your site on mobile devices. And our new portable infoboxes will greatly improve the way your site looks to those 300k unique visitors every month, who are looking at Terraria Wiki on a phone.

Hope to hear from you soon! — CzechOut @fandom 23:36, October 12, 2015 (UTC)

Hello Pathogen. There is a edit farmer in this wiki and I don't know how you didn't saw him yet... He is called The Winter and his edits are pointless. I think you should warn him or block him... He is getting really annoying.

The Right Direction

Hi, It's me, I'm getting back to you on the message you left me on my talk page. By the term "The right direction" I ment, Rules, or something of that sort. Is there any rules I have to follow? 

Kind Regards

Pupswoof117 (talk) 21:51, October 30, 2015 (UTC)

Hello again! The generally accepted overall guidelines for the wiki can be found here, while another one to keep in mind would be the Image Policy (this is the one most often forgotten by users, such as when they upload an image completely unrelated to the wiki — this does not apply to user avatars, however). Other than that standard wiki rules apply, such as:
  • Always edit in good faith.
  • Always behave in a civil and friendly manner.
Other than these, if you have any other questions regarding rules/guidelines/policies, template use, general wiki styling (which isn't always directly stated in the policies — something I need to work on) and so on, feel free to let me know. :) Thanks! 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Fri 30 October 2015, 22:14

Old McDonald

As Terri just said there is an edit farmer in this very wiki. If he is not banned yet please do.

His edits are reaaally minor to the point that I can't understand what he changed.

BladeZII (talk) 07:08, October 31, 2015 (UTC)

I am well aware of the quantity and quality of The Winter's edits, though something that both Terrr and yourself seem to have overlooked is that for the most part he's standardizing the formatting across articles (as well as making small changes to correct grammar or spelling). There is no merit in farming edits with achievements and the leaderboard being disabled, and I have yet to see any of the aforementioned edits being reverted and repeated. Put simply, these are the guidelines for assuming good faith in regards to edits:
  • Unless there is clear evidence to the contrary, assume that people who work on the project are trying to help it, not hurt it.
  • If criticism is needed, discuss editors' actions, but avoid accusing others of harmful motives without clear evidence.
I have yet to see anything that fulfills the former point, and I am also well aware of the extent of the edits being made. I appreciate the concern, however what The Winter is doing is not wrong. In fact, it saves me the trouble of either setting up my bot to do a similar (yet lacking in the judgment of a human editor) job, or otherwise making the multitude of changes myself. 2016_wikia_image_template.png  iPathos | Talk Page | Sat 31 October 2015, 07:45

A couple of small edits

Ayoo Path, haven't seen you in a long time.

Anyways, I have something that needs Admin attention. First off, We (Me and Squazzil) think there should be more ban time options between 2 hours and 1 day. We thought it would be a good idea to add 6 hours and 12 hours. You should be able to do this here, if you have time.

Secondly, a bit less urgent. There's the heidy/squirrel Emoticon which can bother users which have changed their chat background. This is because the original smiley as a white-ish edge around it. I made a replacement without the white border, which, I think, would work better. This edgeless version can be found here: It would be very appreciated if you could replace the original with this one.

That's all for now. Hope you have the time to attend to these things. Also hope to see you on Chat once again!

SlayerOfTheBad (talk) 21:51, December 21, 2015 (UTC)

The replacement squirrel emote has been implemented, though it will (as usual) take a little while for it to become usable.
It looks like MediaWiki:Chat-ban-options-list isn't on the system message whitelist yet, so that change unfortunately can't be made at this time.
