ForewardEdit

So as mentioned by User:Light Daxter, the Dark Cloud wiki is currently undergoing a large revamping project. While we have made a lot of progress since we started in early 2013, we still have a long way to go. Fortunately, most of the crap articles and images that were on the wiki have been dealt with, and we can now clearly plan ahead for what's to come.

It is for this reason that I've decided to keep track of what pages and content needs to be improved and worked on; a to-do list, if you will. While this list is particularly meant for me and Light Daxter to have a rough outline of what's being rewritten, since the wiki is a place where anyone can contribute, I decided to publicly share it.

Most of the work will still consist of cleaning up the old pages that were here, and merging various pages together. Content needs to be revamped as well, as some pages have poor quality images, badly written articles, etc. While other pages need to be marked as stubs, incomplete sections, poor images, etc. in order to gain attention.

As you can imagine, this will take quite a bit of time, so for the time being, it will just be easier to lay out a rough outline of upcoming work that anyone can follow.

To-do listEdit

Location pagesEdit

  • Pages need to be reworked en masse, most if not all present content is to be deleted.
  • Appropriate solution for location store content needs to be found.
  • Infobox needs to be added to all pages.
  • Navbox needs to be added to all pages.
  • Category wise, only the DC2 dungeons are considered 'acceptable', though plot-related history sections still need a good look-over.
  • Otherwise, DC1 dungeons, DC1+2 towns and DC2 future towns are all unfinished.

Character pagesEdit

  • Pages need to be reworked en masse, most if not all present content is to be deleted.
  • Infobox needs to be added to all pages.
  • Navbox needs to be added to all pages.
  • Character-bosses (Gaspard, Griffon, etc.) need to have their battle tactics in their respective character pages

Monster pagesEdit

  • Mostly done, needs a little cleanup here and there
  • Trivia section needs to be moved below Battle Tactics and above Monster Notes
  • Needs "section incomplete" for monster pages missing data/tactics instead of "WIP"
  • Split variation galleries into DC1 and DC2 sections for monsters that appear in both games
  • Character-bosses (Gaspard, Griffon, etc.) need to have their battle tactics in their respective character pages
  • Also remove "depths" from monsters that appear in "Zelmite Mine Depths", as that is the boss floor name
  • DC1-only example: Werewolf
  • DC2-only example: Vanguard
  • Both DC1 and DC2 example: Man-Eating Grass

Item pagesEdit

  • Merge various item pages by category (Powders, Recovery items, Georama items, etc.)
  • Consolidate item data into tables.
  • Separate sections into DC1 and DC2.
  • Examples: Gemstones, Coins, Crystals.

Weapon pagesEdit

  • Weapons, unlike items, will not be merged.
  • Weapon pages are categorized by the character using them rather than by type.
  • Will be completely reworked on and most of the misc. info will be removed.
  • Every weapon page needs an infobox and statistics table.
  • Some weapons are missing data, particularly for DC1, needs {{section}}.

Ridepod partsEdit

  • Ridepod page itself needs to be redone entirely.
  • Arm pages need overhaul.
  • Body/Energy pack/Feet pages need to be merged.

Gameplay/Misc. pagesEdit

ImagesEdit

  • 99% of all old images are to be deleted and replaced with the best quality available (through google image search) and under a .png format.
  • Newly uploaded images need proper filename, description, source, copyright tag and category.
  • No more crappy scans of concept art.
  • Ideally renders of ripped models for everything.
  • If not, in-game screenshots with transparent background are the secondary ideal option.
  • Consider using icons of items in tables and etc.
  • Monster and Weapon images largely completed except for various DC1 ones; replace black/purple background with transparent one

Templates, Navboxes, Infoboxes, etc.Edit

  • Work on a better wiki background/theme.
  • Create new navboxes and infoboxes.
  • Maintain templates and update them if possible (done by User:Light Daxter as it is needed).
