Let's get meta, because this page is for documenting pages that need love and hard work from readers like you to become better. It's the true sequel to Outdated Pages and intends for the same levels of collaboration and communication and more accessibility. Brush up your markup and take a gander at the Guide to Contributing to Wikistation, because it's time for some wiki magic.

A Word for the Anxious


Don't feel too pressured to add info ASAP. Good pages and entries take hard work, dedication, and, more importantly, multiple revisions. If you come in looking for a quick way out and try to learn everything you need in one round for the sake of some wiki page, you'll just end up frustrated, unhappy, and stuck with a terrible draft. Take your time. It can wait. It can always wait.

"High" Priority

Things that people often wish had wiki documentation. And rightfully they wish, because having documentation would be a great big help.

  • Style and Grammar: Writing is communication, and you can't communicate well in writing without good grammar and clear prose. It's especially important for tutorials and the Getting Started page. Be sure to mark them as minor edits as courtesy.
  • Vampire: There was a vampire rework! And MBC's put the burden of figuring out what's been changed on the wiki-nerds. Have fun :)
  • Ore Processing: A highly neglected system that needs more love. Give it some by finding and writing about its redeeming qualities. Or, if you can't, by fact-checking the list of properties, describing how material properties affect each craftables, and maybe adding some new uses and material reccomendations.
  • Foods and Drinks: Food buffs! They're rather minor, but they're interesting and unique enough to warrant wiki documentation. We have a rudimentary Google doc of the various food items' buffs here.
  • Powering the station:
    • Surely, there's a better way of explaining the TEG than with maps with subtly inconsistent varieties of parts and numberings.
    • While you're pondering that, perhaps you should also look into adapting this fellow's TEG guides for Clarion and Destiny.
    • It'd also be great if there were more thorough examples of the techniques described in Overlapping Hotspots.
  • Horizon: Add pictures of Horizon's locations, a short intro/history/description of the map, the date it was introduced, and any new features it has, as well as the many tabs for Horizon versions of the various locations.

"Medium" Priority

Good to have this info, but no one's round is going to be ruined just because there isn't there.

  • Changelog: Copying and pasting changelog updates and formatting for the wiki (which usually just entails more copying and pasting).
  • Being A Better Traitor: Space American Football Kit could use some tips. Surely, there's a few tricks or good tips for using them.
  • Maintenance Info: Many pages are missing locations of APCs, power wires, and air hookup vents/injectors (if applicable). Obviously, someone should add them, seeing as some of them can be in some rather strange locations.
  • Motives: Most people don't have much trouble with them, but it's worth explaining the weird irregularities and highlighting some of the lesser-known ways of increasing/decreasing certain motives.
  • Chemistry:
    • Add in depletion rate, effects when ingested/applied to people/in plants, its recipe if applicable, etc. of
      • Peach juice
      • Space ipecac.
      • Ginger ale
      • Pizza (reagent)
      • Magnesium chloride
      • Fleur-de-lys
      • And the many other many, many obscure chems that are rarely found. Be sure to determine whether or not it's an unlisted secret chemical or an precursor to one.
    • Change the Space Lube entry to reflect the new changes, and add in the new "upgraded" Space Lube chem.
    • In addition, re-examine the damage formula for amanitin. Does it follow the patch, the old elapsed cycles * rand(2,3) formula, or something else?
    • If you know how to make hootagen, change the hint into something more useful/serious. (will do when i figure it out)
  • Roleplay Tips and Tricks: Can always use more RP tips.
  • Guide to writing: Would be great to see some requisition form, menu, prescription, etc. templates for all the lovely RP and bureaucracy fans.
  • Doctoring: Explain what blood clots actually do. Here's a start: Proconvertin can sometimes give you the Blood Clots ailment.
  • Critters/Spacebux: Document what sort of critters are possible with Alt. Ghost Critters
  • Space Pod: Confirm the stated crew capacities of engineering and mining minisubs.
  • Contraband: Add in any contraband items the big chart might have missed. Of particular interest is the nuclear operative's grenade launcher.
  • TermOS: Supposedly, it's possible to set the Buddies to arrest a specific person. If so, what are the commands? Also, do GuardBuddies share the criminal database used by securitrons?
  • Foods and Drinks: Add the recipe and ethanol decay rate for Blue Hawaiian cocktail (IntDweller note: I tried making Blue Hawaiian, but couldn't? Strange stuff).
  • Guide to Genetics:
    • Does hulk/gamma ray exposure make the person immune to stuns as with other versions?
    • Document the new "low-key" mutations from Kyle2143's genetics patch added in the June 3rd updaate.
  • Traits: Add any other benefits conferred by Security Training
  • Wraith: Verify if Decay can emag cyborgs.
  • Engineering Objects: Find out if controlled demolition pipes can be emagged.
  • Guide to Mining: Explain how to find asteroids through the quantum telescope more thoroughly than "Marco Polo it"
  • Gas: Add capacities of the stated gas containers.
  • Syndicate Items: Fill in more details on the fire axe.
  • Space Pod: Add the new Syndicate Minisubs nuclear operatives get when they're underwater.
  • NTSO Security Operative: Make a page about this HoS alternative that spawns with a unique suit and gun, distinct from the ones used in admin shenanigans.
  • General Objects: Figure out just what the hell the magnifying glass you get from golden ticket machines does, if it even does anything.
  • Murder/Security Objects: Add info about the new taser shotgun and elite helmet from Cargo's Security Equipment Upgrade crate.

(C)low(n) Priority

Fun things everybody loves. Everyone adores them when they're there, but if they're gone or missing, nobody complains.

  • Supplementary Info & Galleries: Everyone loves them. They add a great touch of humor that no words can express and really add character to a page like a really good rug. Shame they're rather hard to find.
  • Updated Map Images: Some map locations get extra additions after their images are uploaded, like extra cyborg docks, security scanners, and completely new machines and equipment. Update their images to include those.
  • Annotated Maps: Maps of, well, station maps with important rooms labeled. Currently, we want ones for:

Sprites Wanted

Sprites wanted. Wanted sprites. Sprites that are wanted (by the wiki). The sprites that get a sad, sad TBA for their image.
