Wacky Wiki Update Initiative

Intro

The 'Souls Wiki is a very helpful source and archive of a wealth of information...but only when it's up-to-date! Help us fill in the holes and create further depth to the world of 'Souls and the characters that live in it! We have some rewards to be had for your valiant efforts if you need a little more enticing ;)

Here's how to earn raffle entries!

  • 1 entry - Minor updates (typo fixes, category additions or edits, copy-paste info, etc.) made to any page. Also includes image updates/additions and newly included internal or forum links, such as linking Bob's brother Joe from Bob's page or linking/citing Bob's threads from the board; each only link counts once.
  • 2 entries - 1 factual reference links. This is linking research relevant to various realism/science-related topics.

FAQ!!

1. Do word counts stack?


Yup. The only "weirdness" is that updates to general/public pages don't stack per 50 words, just per 100 words. So 50 words is 5 entries, 100 words is 8 entries, 150 words is still 8 entries, 200 words is 16 entries, 250 words is still 16 entries, and so on.

2. Do image updates and/or additions count?


Yes, they count as minor edits. Don't go suuuuper overboard with this though. While a few images per page are nice, especially for Areas, most pages don't need a 50 image gallery in them. Remember that as reference pages, Wiki pages should strive to be clear and informative above all else!

3. How does it work when someone wants to contribute but doesn't want to edit the Wiki?


Say Player A doesn't want to edit the Wiki, but they write a bunch of content for Some Page. Player A can post to a relevant topic in the Wiki Collab forum, or start their own topic, and post the content they wrote and the page they should go on.

Player A can then post to this thread to collect their entries -- just instead of linking the Wiki with their edit, they'll link their post in the collab forum. In this case, they can collect the appropriate number of entries for their word count.

Player B comes along and sees Player A's contribution in the collab thread, which haven't been added to the Wiki yet. Player B can add the links and images to the Wiki and collect one entry for a minor edit, since they just need to copy/paste Player A's work to the Wiki.

Alternatively, if Player A finds a bunch of relevant links or images that can be added to Some Page, but doesn't format them or write content using them, Player A can only collect points for minor "edits." Player B, who has to figure out where the links/images go, format them for the Wiki, etc, can collect the same number of points for minor edits, because even though they didn't collect the links, they're doing some work!

Additionally, if Player B reads over the links contributed by Player A and writes summaries for them they then add to the Wiki, Player B can collect additional entries for word count.

When Player B posts to log their entries, they should link both their edit on the Wiki and Player A's contribution post.

Players can also use the #wiki-collab channel of the Discord to actively collaborate and coordinate. Just be sure to post finalised information and/or links to the forum as well so you have something that can be linked to!

Hope that makes sense! Let us know if there are more questions!

Hey 'Soulsters!

Just a couple of quick reminders straight from the Wiki Editing Guidelines:
  • Please remember to change the Author field to your Players page name when editing the Wiki.
  • It is also immensely helpful and highly recommended to include notes about what you edited in the Summary field. This makes it clear to everyone at a glance what's recently been done and also makes it easier to keep track of exact updates when multiple edits are done to a single page!
Thanks everyone! c:
