NetHackWiki:How to help

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Because this is a wiki, anyone can edit and change almost any page. However, to help make NetHackWiki a useful and interesting place for NetHack players, we ask for you to:

  1. Be a NetHack player
  2. Read about wiki markup
    • Optionally, practice editing in our sandbox
  3. Create an account
  4. Read our style guide

That is all! Step 4 is important, as a consistent look and feel helps other readers use the wiki.

TODO list

If you want something done and won't or can't do it yourself, try adding it to one of the following lists, or mark the relevant page with a {{todo}} notice.

Specific tasks

A user has suggested improving this page or section as follows:

"Perhaps ironically, this list is out of date. Many of the items were added in 2006. The list should be rewritten. Alternatively, it may be better to rely on the Todo notice/category."

  • There are still many ring/wand/potion/scroll/spellbook articles which are either non-existent or very short stubs. Expand them!
  • We have "best" solutions for sokoban (those leaving no boulders immobile); we should also have fastest solutions.
  • Many special levels have yet to be mapped, as they are in the Gazetteer.
  • The role articles need more structure and a lot more detail.
  • We (and, in fact, the net in general) have very few articles about SLASH'EM (but see the style guide on this).
  • We have no complete articles about past tournaments and winners.
  • We lack screenshots of NetHack running on exotic platforms.
  • Many properties have no complete articles.

Automatable tasks

If you're good with scripts, or just have a thing for mind-numbing repetitive chores, you can do something on this list:
