Welcome to the Garden Paws Wiki Bulletin Board! If you're looking to make a contribution to the wiki, this would be where you can find specific help requests.

Below is a categorized list of things we need assistance with. Tasks can range from easy ones such as adding missing data, to more 'under the hood' stuff like editing categories or updating page formatting.

If you are new to wiki editing, please check out the Help or Editing Guide pages, or practice in the Sandbox. If you do not feel comfortable editing, leave a comment on the page and someone will take care of it. All forms of help are welcome, big or small.

Pending Task List

Basic Tasks

Wiki Pending Icon
The tasks below are those that can be done by anyone, with the overall goal of filling in missing information on the wiki.

Information

Lists of pages with missing information:

Most common information needed:

  • Buy/sell prices for items that have them
  • Quest rewards
  • Cooking times for food
  • Energy restored by various food items. As of the July 3rd, 2020 update, Energy/HP obtained from food has been adjusted, and many pages are now incorrect and need fixing.
  • NPC character "Background" sections (see Frank for an example)
  • NPC pronouns (they/them, she/her, etc)
  • For those that visit the Dungeon a lot, please check over the Dungeon page and add or fix anything that's missing or incorrect

Images

  • Screenshots for Skins that don't have in-game examples yet
  • Screenshots of items that have "world" object counterparts (see Tall Grass or Pine Tree for examples)
  • If you can't find an image, the placeholder image Missing can be used where necessary, and someone will address it later.

Pages

  • Add missing pages for items. They don't have to have details, just a basic {{ItemInfobox}} is fine.
    • A red hyperlink indicates a missing page. (You can check the Wanted Pages section, but it doesn't always update reliably.)

Verification Tasks

Wiki Verification Icon
The tasks below involve verifying if existing information on pages matches the information in the game.
  • Quest descriptions should be identical to those in-game. This includes any typos or capitalization/spacing errors.
    • If the developers do make corrections in later updates, then please make them here as well.
  • Verify quest rewards and unlocks
  • Verify quest requirements (such as needing to play til 6 Fall Year 4, buying a particular upgrade, having access to an area, etc)
  • Verify buy and sell prices

Alert Tasks

Wiki Alert Icon
The tasks below are either priorities for those who use the wiki, or reflect FAQs on Discord or Steam forums. Some tasks may need an admin role. Admins will list these tasks.
  • Reword/edit text on pages to fix typos, adjust spacing, or pare down run-on paragraphs to be more concise. (Check the cleanup category first.)
  • Add and organize Skins (in progress)
  • Add image galleries for crafting recipes where needed (see Workbench for an example)
  • Add items and their prices to shop pages (see Flower Shop for an example)
    • "Personal Shop" refers to a character who only sells a couple of items (see Malu for an example)

Advanced Tasks

Blueprint
Only attempt these if you know what you are doing. Some tasks may need an admin role to complete.
  • Change Notes on pages into actual references[1] (see the Notes template for how)
  • Rename:
    1. Images that are hard to refer to (i.e. File names that are long and contain "resources-12345"). Change them to simpler names. Editors who use the source editor will highly appreciate this.
    2. Images that don't fit existing naming conventions for others in the same group (Ex: If 9 bouquets are named "Bouquet_Flowername.png" and one is named "Flower_Bouquet.png", change it to match. This makes searching much easier.)
  • Tag images with the Images category.
  • Delete images that are duplicates. Check any related pages to be sure which is the 'correct' one to keep. (There are many many many duplicates of Skin thumbnails that various users have uploaded).
  • Update Patch Notes page to reflect the latest updates
