Potential Tasks

(deemed generally outdated. Should probably go somewhere else, in a different form.)
Pages/concepts that need work

  • Combat
  • Gardening/ Garden Pots (Growth time + quality calcuations)
  • More information needed for PClaims, Villages, and Realms (See the village box at the bottom of those pages for what subjects need to be updated and created
  • Finish adding information to Terrain pages
  • Finish adding information to all Tree pages
  • Add proper metaobj tags to Category:Gilding Objects for automatic list population (see Fine Feather Brooch as an example) - Completed! Thanks KitsuneG
  • All Things Gems (further discussion might be required. a separate page for each gem would require over 500 pages) - A solid foundation created with the help of Romovs
  • Figure out how to link infobox terrain and infobox tree to infobox metaobj for automatic population of trees, plants, and animals

General help

  • Searching on RoB is (now) non case-sensitive. The search field included on every page will automatically jump to any page with a matching page-name (blocked by adding a trailing "~" or "*"). The main search page will not do such automatic jump by default. See the Mediawiki Searching help page for additional info. (note: the "*" option expects at least 4 characters for partial word-matching to kick in.)
  • To follow the changes to this wiki see the Recent Changes page.
  • If you need help editing, you could start with Ring of Brodgar talk:Community Portal.
  • For more information on how we want pages to be formatted check the Article Standards
  • For more information on how pages can be formatted check the Manual of Style
  • The main infobox template is the Template:Infobox metaobj. See AllPages for other available infobox templates.

Things You can Do

  • Symptom: Changes in one page are not 'immediately' showing up in another related/effected pages. (general MediaWiki feature)
To force a direct page-update for related/affected pages, for quick debugging purposes, one would use a Null-edit on those pages.
(Without a Null-edit those page will update at a later time)
  • Small, hard to read wiki formula:
Having an empty line before and after the math formula will display formulas in a bigger style.

In-Game names versus RoB-Wiki used names

When it comes to in-game names, the general rule it to stick to those at RoB-wiki.
But there are some exceptions where RoB-wiki uses a different name than the used in-game name.
Those exceptions are listed at the Game_v_RoB_name_changes page.
