Editor's Hub

Welcome to the new Editor's Hub, the wiki's central hub for editors. This page is intended to be used to help make sense of what's going on with current wiki projects such as what pages are looking to be made and what you can do to help. In addition, the page will be populated with links to help you create better wiki pages, and help to guide new players through the complicated spider web of content.

#1 Project Spiderweb

The wiki has grown to include an enormous collection of content but as of right now there's no main way to visualise or explore all this content. This task has a few sub-tasks, one of them was building the new Editor's Hub. The second, which is already underway, is to create pages that cover big topics, and can be used to link to a whole number of other easier to digest pages already out there.

  • Minecart Rapid Transit Server - This page should give a brief summary of all aspects of the server such as history, ranks, staff, worlds, MRT, etc. Each section will link back to a bigger, more detailed section.
    • New World - Should give a description of the world, a brief history, geography and layout of the world.
      • New World MRT System - Should give more detailed information of the history, construction process, technology and planning behind the MRT lines. Should also link to existing MRT line pages.
      • New World Highway System - Page is there but needs an introduction, explaining what the roads are for, how they are used, how they are different from the Old World, how to plan one, etc.
    • Old World - Should mirror the New World page giving a description of the world, a brief history, geography and layout of the world.
      • Old World MRT System - Should mirror the New World MRT System page giving more detailed information of the history, construction process, technology and planning behind the MRT lines. Should also link to existing MRT line pages.
    • MRT Wiki - A page that gives a description of what the wiki is and how its used, types and examples of content, commonly used code (i.e. infoboxes), links to help articles, etc. A wiki page about a wiki.

Important: Don't make a page for the sake of making a page, you've got to add content to it. Avoid "work-in-progress" pages.

As an incentive, here's an achievement if you help out:

{{ach|Super Editor|Make a notable contribution to a project listed in the [[Minecart Rapid Transit Wiki:Editor's hub|Editor's Hub]].}}

Achievement get!

#2 Project Fill 'er Up

We've got some amazing pages on the go already that need your help.

Most Requested Pages

See Special:WantedPages

Some of the biggest towns and cities on the server still don't have a wiki page. Get in touch with a town owner, perhaps they might need some encouragement, or write it yourself. Creating town pages isn't restricted to town owners, you can make them too, that's the spirit of a wiki.

#3 Project Pretty Pictures

A more difficult and time consuming request. Pictures are great, they say a lot more than words and faster. The most interesting pages always have a good amount of pictures to go alongside the words. The following pages could do with graphics or pictures.

  • New World Highway System - Where are all these roads? A simple highway map would do wonders as a navigational aid for people travelling by road. What we need is a map that is updated frequently. Ideally a map people can download and edit themselves if the project file was included. Someone with a passion for graphics and roads would be the best for this.

#4 Material Boxes

Here are some material boxes, polished and ready to go.

Examples

#5 Ward-Tastic

Please try to contribute to this as it will benefit people that plan to make towns or start SMP's.

For this project, have have to make pages for each of the wards (excluding 0 - CC) and put major towns, roads, SMP's, and MPO's that are within the ward. Please add maps, pictures of the cities/towns, etc. This project will be greatly appreciated and will help out other players. (If you're up for the job, try to do at least 2 wards)

In addition to this, please alter town wiki pages to be in the relevant ward category (Category:Towns in Ward <Ward>)

#6 More Maps Project

Some guests and members like to ride metros and drive all over the world. But some of those metros have no maps! It will be quite confusing to find out where to go and they can't know more about the metro system. So, metro makers should make a metro map.

#7 Dynmap

Please try to add to the Dynmap Project page that has been created here.

It should contain:

  • A full table of when dynmap renders are.
  • Features and possible history of the service.
  • Helpful Uses of Dynmap.
