State of the Wiki: October Report


Deleting Wiki Pages

If you want to delete a Wiki Page, either because you've created it by mistake or you think it is no longer relevant, see Category:Candidates for deletion for instructions on how to mark a Page for deletion.

After enough Pages accumulate (or Evon reminds me to take a look :P ), a member of the Wiki Department with administrative Wiki rights will review the Pages and decide if they should be deleted or spared.

Merging Wiki Users

When the Wiki switched from using Wiki Accounts to using EVE Online Characters as a method of authentication, usernames were duplicated.

I've merged all remaining Wiki Account usernames with the new EVE Online Character usernames.

Here's the list of all effected usernames formatted as "<old username> -> <new username> <optional note>":

Categorizing Wiki Pages Using Templates

Evon prompted me to add a rule to the UniWiki:Categorization guidelines that states you should "Categorize an article by writing wikitext in the article. Do not categorize articles using Templates outside Category:Maintenance templates."
Since the overwhelming majority of Templates are constructed and maintained by the Wiki Department, this guideline will effect few editors.

This guideline aims to:
  • make Categories more obvious by placing them on a Page as wikitext
  • allow ArinBot to remove or restructure the Category more easily
  • prevent inappropriate articles and non-article Pages such as Sandbox Pages from getting added to the Category

I've enforced this guideline by deleting all transcludable Categories from all Templates outside Category:Maintenance templates and added these Categories as wikitext on each individual Wiki Page.

EVE University On The Wiki

I strongly encourage EVE University Directors and Managers to use the Wiki. The Wiki can offer:
  • a vibrant collaborative editing environment where any capsuleer can extend, enhance and update your work
  • thousands of pages that already explain difficult concepts step by step
  • a powerful styling syntax
  • ready-made templates to show off and enhance your work

However, if you find the Forum or Discord more useful, you needn't use the Wiki beyond maintaining the Pages assigned to your Directorate or Department. You can find the Pages assigned to your Department on the Template:EVEUniversityNav.

The Template now also displays a reminder that "Before making non-minor edits to a page listed below, contact the EVE University department responsible for that page. If no department is responsible for a page, contact the Wiki Department.".

If a Wiki Page assigned to your Department is Protected, consider lifting the Protection so that other members of your department can help you maintain the Page.

Distinguished Wiki Editors

A big thank you to:
This month I was overjoyed to see so many editors updating the Wiki! Let's make the Wiki the most beautiful and the most truthful publicly available knowledge repository in all of New Eden! :)
