SS13 Wiki:Current events

From Space Station 13 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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 It's the true sequel to Outdated Pages and intends for the same levels of collaboration and communication and more accessibility.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.
  • 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.
    • Describe how to set up Horizon's TEG engine.
  • Horizon: Add tabs for Horizon versions of the various locations and explain how to navigate it, particularly what the map considers east, west, north, and south.
  • Manta: Add tabs for Manta's rooms and areas, explain how it simulates movement, and describe what "port", "starboard", and other directions mean on that map.

"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, recipe hint if it's secret, etc. of
      • Peach juice
      • Ginger ale
      • Pizza (reagent)
      • Magnesium chloride
      • Fleur-de-lys
      • Triple triple (Not secret, ingredients still are)
      • Energy drink
      • 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.
    • Describe how damaged caused by floors coated with Organic Superlubricant is calculated.
    • 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?

(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.
