Paragon Wiki Wishlist
« on: February 07, 2020, 02:25:13 PM »
Mostly to the Moderators:Staff.
Have been looking at "missing info" tabs that can be populated from Homecoming. I was able to edit in some missing Dialogue from the Praetor Duncan Arc in Dark Astoria the other day. Is there any missing info that is a bit of a priority? I play a lot at odd hours and have characters at about any level, and usually play solo except weekends, so have the option to stop and smell the roses so to speak. I still think Paragon Wiki is an extremely Valuable Resource to the community and there is a ton of stuff that is still consistent with the game at shutdown that could be updated. It just takes a lot of time to find where the holes in the wiki are.
When it's too tough for everyone else,
It's just right for me.......
( unless it's cold, or raining , or dirty,
 or there are Sappers, man I Hate those Guys )

I’m not a wiki admin, but I wanted to respond at least.

ParagonWiki is intended to be the I23/I24 source of info.  If there’s a change done on the wiki from Homecoming or Victory that is not on Vol. 2 servers like Reborn or Resurrection, it is going to impact others unfairly.  That has been the largest issue.  (Granted, it’s not hard to find a Vol.2 server you can play without any commitment out there.) In my view, that’s been the largest hurdle to adding more to the Wiki right now.

Be careful.

Yeah, if you're going to edit, then make sure to check that server's change log (or with the devs) to make sure that what you're putting isn't exclusive to it.

Mostly looking at simple stuff like mission dialogue, which for missions that were pre-Issue 23, should be the same now. I will stay far clear of editing existing info, just looking to fill in where I see "missing info" or "edit needed".

Some pages that have missing information are explicitly tracked: https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Category:Work_in_Progress, https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Category:Incomplete, https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Category:Stubs, https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Special:WantedPages, https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Missing, and the pages that link to the various "missing" templates listed here: https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Category:Contact_Templates (click a template, click the "what links here" button on the sidebar).

There are, however, pages that just have the text "missing xyz" in them, and if you find those, replace the text with either the {{missing}} template, or correct it.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.
