Welcome to the 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 web of content.

Project Fill 'er Up

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

Most requested pages

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.

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.

Clarification templates

Five clarification templates have been made working on the Wiki. Use them instead of raw text and fix them on pages which do not utilize these where appropriate.

Lore and role-play indicators

Articles that feature fictitious information used for role-play or lore should be specified using the lore and role-play indicators.

Role-playing and lore refer to fictitious events that have been created for various reasons. Lore refers to fictitious history, while role-playing refers to fictitious stories where players may be able to influence the result and may have real-server impacts. October 2017 Zaquar Coup D'état is an example of role-play, while Lore of Sequoia and Campus life at Auburn Academy are examples of lore.


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

For this project, add information to pages of each of the wards (Ward 1, Ward 2, Ward 3, Ward 4, Ward 5, Ward 6, Ward 7, Ward 8, Ward 9) and put major towns, roads, SMPs, and MPOs that are within the ward by adding the information into the infobox. Please add maps, pictures of the cities/towns, etc. This project will be greatly appreciated and will help out other players.

In addition to this, please alter town wiki pages to be in the relevant ward category by using the Template:Infobox town ward section method if applicable.

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.


Many categories, and some pages, have capitalized each word in its title rather than only capitalizing the first letter and any proper nouns. Categories and pages should be renamed to have correct capitalizations.

Important: Fixing category names involves editing all pages in that category with the new capitalization, as moving a category will not update the pages with the newly capitalized category.

Some categories with incorrect capitalizations include:

Infobox blank or Blank infobox?

Infoboxes should have the naming convention of infobox then name. Some earlier infoboxes created on the wiki are backwards and should be renamed accordingly in order to have all infoboxes be automatically available at Category:Infobox templates.

Important: Infoboxes attempting to be moved should first leave a redirect to the new template. Afterwards, all infoboxes named incorrectly in articles should be renamed manually per article. After there are no more pages that link to the old infobox, it is then safe to remove the template from the wiki to prevent confusion.

Some infobox templates that need renaming include:

Article section headers

Some older articles on the wiki have section headers with only 1 set of =s. This causes the header text on the page to be the same size as the article title (on this page: Editor's hub). Help bring the number of these articles down by adding another set of equals signs on the section titles. In addition, there shouldn't be any color or formatting in section headers. Please also remove this in any articles that you may come across.

Important: Some articles need to have entire subsections that also need another set of equal signs. This depends per article and should be taken care of on a case-by-case basis. Look carefully to ensure that subsections stay within the correct parent section.

Some pages that need this treatment include:

Material boxes

Material boxes should not be used in-text, but rather in tables and sparingly in infoboxes. This is for readability and consistency. Examples include:

  • Incorrect: Nippia is a Senator city founded and owned by KittyCat11231, located at  ZN20  Nippia Central,  ZN21  Nippia North, and  ZN22  on the MRT Zephyr Line.
  • Incorrect: The  A92  begins with a concurrency with the  B880  on the south edge of Carnoustie in Ward 8, connecting to Main Street near the Carnoustie Business Park.
  • Correct: Nippia is a Senator city founded and owned by KittyCat11231, located at ZN20, ZN21, and ZN22 on the MRT Zephyr Line.
  • Correct: The A92 begins with a concurrency with the B880 on the south edge of Carnoustie in Ward 8, connecting to Main Street near the Carnoustie Business Park.
