Contribute to the Wiki.png

The following is a list of categories for which contributions are needed, as well as a brief description of each category.

NEVER add information on content that has not been released by Gameloft yet. Doing so without permission from gameloft may result in a ban from editing or a ban from accessing the site at all.

Before You Begin

Please review the tips below before you begin contributing. Please also make a note to either preview (edit source mode) or to check over your edits before saving them, rather than making a large number of edits to a single page that moderators have to patrol separately (if possible).

Creating New Pages

If you plan to create new articles for the wiki, please read the Wiki Quick Reference Guide to learn more about when and how to Create a new page. New pages are typically created from existing links created by wiki staff to follow page naming conventions, with some exceptions. All contributions must be factual and are subject to review based on the Manual of Style guidelines and site Policies. Contributions that do not meet these criteria may be edited or removed.

Collaborating

Wiki's are collaborative editing environments, it is important to not be precious about your contributions. All contributions may be edited mercilessly but with good intention, that doesn't mean a contribution isn't appreciated, it means the information is useful but can be taken further, or adjusted further. As stated on mediawiki.org, if you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here.

Wiki staff are regular contributors with routine maintenance tasks and edits, if you need help or would like to help with routine tasks instead of the ones outlined on this page, consider adding a message to a Staff member's "Talk" page or post something on the Wiki Support page. The regular contributor/maintainer of any page can be viewed by clicking the button entitled Actions, and then clicking History.

Descriptions Needed

Visual descriptions are needed for Dragons that do not yet have them. There are currently 460 Dragons that need visual descriptions written. A guide on how to describe Dragons can be found here.

Codex Entries Needed

Some Dragons may be entered without their in-game Dragon Codex entry being filled out. There are currently 0 Dragons that need Dragon Codex entries written.

Update Linking Needed

The Game Updates link to the newly introduced Dragons. 0 Dragons are still missing the link back to the update though.
This |update= Update x.y parameter should be added at the end of the template call on the Dragon's page.

Articles needing maintenance

  • A page that needs fixing will usually contain general information that has not been written into an article yet, needs editing or the article needs to be rewritten. Pages that need to be written into an article are in the stage of information gathering before being created. A page will need to be edited if there are improper or missing links, bad grammar, spelling errors or misinformation. A page needs to be rewritten when the information in the article is presented in a jumbled fashion or the page is written in an informal style.
  • Pages with missing information usually need data such as new pages that still need information gathered, specific level goals, old event information etc.
  • Pages without proper images either having missing images or images that do not meet the Manual of Style requirements. The most common error made with images is improper or no cropping. Improper images need to be replaced or edited to meet the Manual of Style.

Wanted Files

Wanted Files are images that are needed on the wiki. These are usually missing images of Dragons that have been mentioned in-game or by Gameloft but have not yet been seen or Dragon related images such as Dragon Eggs, buildings of a specific level or images of specific upgrade information. Note: Please do not create files that end in "Dragon Icon.png" (e.g., File:Leo Dragon Icon.png‏‎), these files are created by an Administrator (Kim) to ensure size and image consistency given their use in the DML Wiki interface.

Wanted Pages

NEVER add information on content that has not been released by Gameloft yet.
Wanted Pages are articles that are needed on the wiki. These usually include new content brought by recent updates or just missing events.
