So the main topics in the sidebar can't be links? that's a pity. Should we have the last link then be to the guide page/category? --JonTheMon 15:47, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't know, but I feel the Guide page definitely needs more exposure, either on the side, or the front page. Our mainspace articles are stable, and I think we should put more focus into full fledged articles (guides) about the game. I'll just wait for wynthyst, to see if he has something in mind, or you can have a go at it. happypal (talk • contribs) 15:58, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure how to promote them more. We could add a "Guides" index page, though all the guides that are really established are linked either in the sidebar already, or on the mainpage under "About the Game" If you want to highlight the project page more, maybe a link in the "Wiki Community" box on the mainpage??? There is plenty of white space there since the Environments section has expanded so much since the beginning..... -- Wynthyst File:Curseicon.png talk 23:41, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Portuguese translates

I wonder how that will be the translation project for the Portuguese wiki

About the Domain, will be the translation of "names" of NPC's, Items and more ...


--Bunchaban 21:27, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

I choise the team for the Portuguese?

In the case in my previous question, names of the itens,monsters and other need be translate?

And is only necessary to make pages of Main Page? --Bunchaban 03:58, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks :)

I choise for now, Hiqui(talk • contribslogsblock log) and Shrooms(talk • contribslogsblock log). I choose them to be Administrators. And I accept to be the bureaucrat. --Bunchaban 11:14, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Any News? :) We got in more than 350 Portuguese Wiki pages translated... --Bunchaban 22:31, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Polish Wiki


By reason of the low interest by Polish users, I recommend for now, two persons - me and LiLa. | SaladinPL (talk • contribs) 15:15, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Please add additional filters, full of spam lately. And please add DJBDM PL to the administration group. Merry Christmas ;) --SaladinPL 21:01, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

You should be able to promote DJBDM PL to an admin since you are a bureaucrat. --JonTheMon 22:07, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, my bad :) --SaladinPL 09:10, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Welcome back

The night shift was getting a bit hairy once in a while. --JonTheMon 14:24, 17 August 2011 (UTC)


Hello, sry, my English is not good. Im German. I need a Right for create Templates pls for the german wiki. -- Sahagin 01:42, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

You should acquire the right once you are "auto-confirmed": In a couple of days, or after a few edits. That said, you shouldn't translate the templates: Translate only pages, and once they are translated, we will create a sub-domain were you can modify the templates. happypal (talk • contribs) 13:29, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
OK, thx. I have changed the german Newspage]. What do you thing? -- Sahagin 19:25, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
too late -.- -- Sahagin 08:53, 20 August 2011 (UTC)


That's a lot. Your delete finger a bit sore? --JonTheMon 12:43, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Lol, and there's still a lot to do... Thank god for keyboard shortcuts. happypal (talk • contribs) 13:27, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Crafts Templates

I'm told you created these yourself? If so, I'm definitely a fan. -- TechpriestMagos 13:18, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Sweet, thanks. happypal (talk • contribs) 09:13, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

French Wiki

While I've taken to editing the French wiki for some bizarre reason (I know a whole 3 words of French or so), is there anything I should specifically avoid? I assume creating pages empty save for recipe templates, infoboxes and a stub tag would be less than favorable. -- Rhombus (TC) 01:46, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Is there a problem with the French wiki ? I can't edit it (SQL request error), and there is no recent change since the 16 January. -- Evolena, 18 January 2012

Same in Russian wiki
The problem has been reported to curse staff. I will keep the cummunities updated. happypal (talk • contribs) 13:03, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Spanish Wiki

Hello. What are the requirements to create the main page of this wiki in Spanish? (Like the Wiki in Portuguese - It would be very helpful to have the main page in Spanish (Hypothetically speaking, and it would be easier to locate the translated articles.

Thank you. (Sorry for my english :P) --ZebaX 18:32, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Ola Zebax. El problema es que no hay muchas paginas en español ahorita. Vea aqui: Category:Spanish translation.
El resto de la comunidad esta aquí: Terraria Wiki:Projects/Spanish translation
Si quieres una "main page" en español, la puedes escribir aqui: Terraria Wiki/es.
Una vez que la comunidad español habrá escrito suficientemente paginas, Curse va a creará un wiki para ustedes.
I hope my spanish is not too rusty...? :D happypal (talk • contribs) 09:04, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Tu español está bien xDDD.
Thank you very much for your response. I will do everything possible to complete the project :3 Greetings. --ZebaX 04:18, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you

Hey happypal i just wanted to say thanks for your message to staff on community central. It seems to have gotten things going when it seemed like it was over. Your truly a decent person considering this sort of conflicts with this wiki. Gracey91 (talk contribs) 06:54, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Don't let me down. That comment you left on the for testing wiki, that was a HUGE red flag, no matter how you look at it. It is insta ban material, and can and will get you arrested IRL... Don't play it down like it was nothing. I fear wikia may not allow to return because of it, but I also think the situation can still resolve favorably, ie: an "honorable discharge". I'm not you, but if you truly love the wiki, I'd consider offering my resignation over it, in the hope the overall situation will end more favorably for the wiki. Anyways, I fought for having a true open discussion, overlooked by a competent staff. The situation is out of my hands. I wish the best for you, and the wiki. happypal (talk • contribs) 08:27, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I know that message was stupid, at the time i wasn't thinking. I have been given a global block for a week and am welcome back after that I'm told. I didn't realize it would be such a big issue, Sannse told me in an email its something they block people permanently for but since it was a test wiki, it was quickly removed and the message wall was disabled its not as bad. I'm just going to have a think whilst I'm blocked and work out what i want to do, like you said leaving may be in my best interest. Gracey91 (talk contribs) 06:10, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
Hey, I'm glad things resolved (relatively) positively for you. I hadn't recommended that you leave entirely, merely stepping down from being an admin for a while. Which is exactly what Sannse said too: She said you wouldn't be an admin, but that you were still free to participate on the wiki. I'm quite sure MathMagician still has you in his esteem, as do many other editors. Of course, I'd be quite thrilled to have you here too (both aren't exclusive BTW). Having some fresh blood give a new look on the wiki is always a plus. That, and I've heard some great things about you. If you have any recommendations, or projects, I'm willing to push to get things going. If you want to know, most templates here were originally written by wynthyst and myself. JonTheMon, Lunboks and Null maintained or improved upon them. You can always ask any of us if you have any questions about them. I'll be looking into your .js. I'm interested in what you've developed, and wouldn't mind using your 1-click delete thingy. Have fun. happypal (talk • contribs) 12:15, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
Lol thanks again. I will have to see how it all pans out. I've looked around this wiki and can't really see that much to do, everything seems to have been done. Only thing i noticed is there isn't an image policy, i figured things like this would generally be deleted but couldn't find any details. lol bit or random info, that person also uploaded that picture to the other wiki.
Regarding the 1 click deleted. There is 2 like that i use: 1st one is the Fast delete buttons that allow you to delete a page quickly when your on it, it also adds a different deletion summary for you depending what button you hit. 2nd is WHAM, this has been the single greatest tool i have used as an admin. 1 click and you can mass rollback a users contributions, mass delete any pages they created, and block a user it also allows bot functions so you don't spam RC. Its what the VSTF use to mass clean-up vandalism, i have used it to clean up 500+ contributions in seconds. Just to be clear i didn't create either of them.
I was interested to see if you had an css running and noticed you have none. I suggest you add this:
/* Increase fontsize of DIFFS */ 
td.diff-addedline, td.diff-deletedline, td.diff-context { vertical-align: top; font-size: 100%; }
#pt-login { font-weight: bold; font-size: 90%; }
p.error { font-weight: bold; }
/* End Increase fontsize of DIFFS */
It will prevent you from going blind lol. Gracey91 (talk contribs) 17:07, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
AFAIK, our image policy is pretty open, and based on "common-sense" lol: If the image is meant for your user space, then anything flies I guess, as long as it is not against terms of services. As for the main space, if the image is warranted, it stays I guess. I haven't (nor has anybody else, I believe), done any image cleanup since the wiki has been running. I think I might do a little bit of assessment to see the state of things. happypal (talk • contribs) 09:33, 6 February 2012 (UTC)


Well, if you don't see any issues, do you think it's time to promote Icke? --JonTheMon 03:03, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

persian translate

hi! I want to start project of persian translation to help our players. but when i saw your help for starting a project,I understand nothing.can I start it anyway?and how?! and another thing:better to "random page" button only show English pages. thank for interesting wiki


I'm not sure who I should contact these days as all bureaucrats/curse members seem to be inactive, but recently I made a bot to automate some boring tasks. This is working great, but it would be best if a separate bot account is used for this. I've created a separate account for this User:0icke0bot, however as an admin I'm unable to add this account to the bot user rights group or give this account admin rights (So I can use the bot account for deleting pages, rather than my own account). So I was wondering whether you could do this. I've already asked Eyes some time ago, but I got no response, so I assume he is inactive. --0icke0 (talk) 18:40, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Curse-made Terraria videos

Hi there, I'm your new primary Curse contact since Wyn's passing. I apologise for just leaping in, but needs must. Our video content manager is very interesting in making gameplay videos for Terraria. Would you be interested / willing to have this sort of content on Terraria Wiki, and in particular on the main page ? — Game widow (talk) 23:38, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
