Fire Emblem Wiki:To-do list

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem Wiki information. By Fans, for Fans.
Revision as of 03:49, 11 March 2019 by Shiningpikablu252 (talk | contribs) (...That's it. B01 era through B15 era, every character in them now have their Cipher boxes and confirmed to have every card needed for them as of yesterday evening. Things still aren't perfect, though (anyone willing to translate B16's name?)...)

Welcome to Fire Emblem Wiki! This is the wiki's official to-do list, detailing ongoing and incomplete tasks around the wiki. If you just signed up and are looking for somewhere to start editing, this list is a good place to start.

Have you arrived here from another wiki or website, and aren't sure where to begin? First, you should create an account–click here and complete the form, ensuring you complete all required fields. If you choose to add an email address, you should check your inbox and follow the instructions in the account verification email as soon as possible (make sure to check your spam folder if you can't find it); this ensures that you will be able to reset your password if you forget it. Once you're signed up, you're free to edit! For brand new accounts, we recommend starting by adding to stubs, and fixing spelling and grammar errors. Unfortunately, as an anti-spam precaution, brand new users cannot create new articles or upload images; you must first be registered for four days, and have made a total of 10 edits, to be allowed to create articles and upload images.

If you have any questions, please ask an administrator, or visit our Discord server, where one of our editors or staff members will be able to help you out.

Ongoing tasks

  • Ensure that all articles are properly categorised. See this page for a list of articles with no categories.
    • Likewise, all images must also be properly categorised. For a list of uncategorised images, please see this page. Ideally, these lists should both be empty.
  • All articles should be linked to from at least one other article on the wiki (with the exception of disambiguation pages). See this list for pages that have no other pages linking to them.
  • All articles should also have at least one link to another article. This page lists articles with no links to other pages.
  • Ensure that all articles use proper grammar and spelling.
  • Review the list of wanted pages. This lists non-existent articles with the most other pages linking to them. If you have enough information to add, please consider creating these articles. Many of these are chapter articles; a good place to start with these is by adding a list of enemies appearing in that chapter, and boss data. See this page for an example of a good chapter article.
  • Check the list of wanted files; if you have a suitable image, please upload it (be sure to follow our image naming and categorising policies).
  • Consider expanding pages that are marked as stubs.
  • Check the list of images needing improvement; if you can improve them, please do so.
  • Fire Emblem Heroes receives regular updates; we should ensure that we try to keep up to date on new characters, skills, story chapters, and so on.

Priority tasks

Other important tasks

  • Check the list of wanted character pages; these are mostly complete by now, but some NPC characters may not yet have an article. Please create it if you can; NPC character pages will mostly focus on their role in the story, so you should be able to explain this in as much detail as possible.
  • Add and expand on plot summaries, development info, etc. to game articles.
  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, TearRingSaga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles, and TearRingSaga Series: Berwick Saga are severely lacking in information.
  • Many characters have varying degrees of lacking Fire Emblem Cipher information:
    • A few characters from B09 originating from the Hasha no Tsurugi manga, itself also severely lacking in information, do not have articles
      • Cipher boxes for these characters have been whipped up, but are currently in incubation awaiting their target articles, preferably created with functional Hasha cores and not created solely to house these Cipher boxes
    • A sizable number of pieces of information in character articles' Cipher card boxes have not been translated from raw Japanese; these include quotes, illustrators, and epithets. Many epithets still in raw, untranslated Japanese on character articles are also in raw, untranslated Japanese on the articles for their original set.
    • Additionally, character epithets on cards that are already covered on character articles are often inconsistent between the character pages, booster series articles, starter deck articles, the promotional cards article, and the artist listing (if even covered there)
    • Cipher's artist listing is also woefully incomplete; not every artist who has contributed to the card game is included on that page, and those artists who are included may have incomplete compilations of their work
  • Review the wiki's proposed policies, and contribute what you can to the discussions.

Tasks for wiki staff members

  • Patrol every edit on the Recent Changes.
  • Try to keep on top of the list of pages marked for deletion. If a consensus has been reached, delete the page, or remove the deletion template, as appropriate. Pages for speedy deletion are dealt with automatically, and don't need to be deleted manually; however, if you feel a page marked for speedy deletion should not be deleted, you should remove the speedy deletion tag as soon as possible.
  • If a consensus has been reached on accepting a proposed policy, it should be marked as enforced.
  • Create any missing help pages, and expand on shorter ones.
  • Review hidden maintenance categories, and deal with any issues that may have arisen in them.
