  • How would you like to do something special? Here are some tasks if you're up for it.

    1. Help Dirtytabs with images
    2. Add interlanguage links
    3. Try out Autowikibrowser

    I can discuss them more if you're up for it.

    • I'd love to make myself useful... point 1. seems out of my possibilities though, since I have zero experience editing images.

      So, tell me a bit how can I help on each task, and I'll try!

    • The images thing is simple.

      I left a full message on Dirtytab's wall, but here is a trimmed version.

      Go to images and give them image categories. You can tell what categories to add with category suggest. For instance, if a new Wilson photo is added, add this to it.

       ==Licensing==
      {{Fairuse}}
      [[Category:Images]]
      [[Category:Character Images]]

    • I'm not sure if I got it right. The idea is: going thought the 3776 photos and editing them, adding them to the Image category and any other image subcategory they may belong to? There are very few subcategories, as far as I can see. Also, how can I know if they are "Fairuse"? Isn't that copyright related? (And what is the heading "licensing" part for? What's that code doing?).

    • Oh it's simplerer than that. Just look at Dirtytabs does and you'll get it.

    • Ok, I think I get an aproximate idea, although I'm not sure what's the criteria... some of the pictures contain objects or characters, but Dirtytabs only added the them to the general Image category, while in others he added them to the object or character subcategory.

      Also, what pictures should I be categorizing? New ones? Or should I go through old ones following some method?

    • All uncategorized ones...

      Also, just add categories according to what page you would expect them to be on. (A photo of Wilson holding an Umbrella should be in Item images, not Character images)

      If you feel the need to add new categories, let me know.

    • Still uncertain what the Fairuse means and when (not) to use it...

        Loading editor
    • Go to the upload photo page and look at the drop list of templates it provides.

    • My (non existant) images and those taken from Wikipedia, are easy.

      Images of public domain, I start to be uncertain. Some I see easy, but others, I can't guess.

      And what about wallpapers and other images used to promote the game (that are not screenshots or ingame images or icons). Are they Fair Use, or has Klei given permission to use that copyrighted material?

      And I have no idea how other Creative Commons and other free licenses work (I'm not an expert on Fair Use either, it's not even a law of my own country!).

        Loading editor
    • Just tag those as fair use and we can examine the licensing later.

        Loading editor
    • So basically everything from Klei and the game goes in Fair Use, Wikipedia in their own category... and fanart and non-Klei stuff, none.

      Is there any way to check what images are uncategorized to add them? Because randomly reviewing the thousands of photos looking for the uncategorized ones... Maybe you could program something in the wiki so it dumps every non-categorized-yet picture in a place where we can go through them adding categories?

    • Just go with the flow.

    • Ogg files also go in the image category, right?

      Or maybe that could be yet another category, sound files?

        Loading editor
    • I forgot about those. Just wait until I find a suitable category for them.

    • I came across this:

      http://dont-starve-game.wikia.com/wiki/File:Favicon.ico

      Not even sure what it is... ico in wikia?

      It even warns me about possible malware or whatever...

    • See that thing at the top of your tab?

      It's him.

        Loading editor
    • Aha, fav = favorite, as in bookmarks! So it shows on the browser tabs? Got it.

        Loading editor
    • Is there any reason "/* page text */" is left on the badges .png? Or is it just a chunk of leftover text?

        Loading editor
    • Also, this one: http://dont-starve-game.wikia.com/wiki/File:Toy_Chester.png doesn't allow edits, so I can't add it to mobs and merchandising categories.

        Loading editor
    • Should I tag Wormhole photos as "mob" or "object" images?

      Edit: Actually, same question about the Houndius Shootius.

        Loading editor
    • Anemicne?

      Need to know: Wormhole, Hondius Shootius, Maxwell's Head, Fireflies... better tagged as mobs or objects?

      Also, that little "/* page text */", is it serving any purpose, or is it erasable?

    • When trying to add categories to the Star Caller's Staff stars images, I get:

      The modifications you tried to make were aborted by an extension hook.

      When trying to do it through edit, it says someone modified the page while I was working on it...

    • You can toss it, it's just default text. 

      Just go with both to be sure.

    • I've been placing badges in icons for easier finding, but they are a few, so I nominate it as possible image subcategory. So having two small subs icons and badges separated, or a little bigger one as it is joined together.

      Also, you might want to consider a map subcategory (including map icons, or not), because those are a quite a few too, and they have icons, as well as representing characters + items + objects...

      Those two thoughts from the top of my head.

    • It's better to leave the wiki stuff out of categories. Ruins the magic.

        Loading editor
    • Also, there's a {{Fairuse}} template. Use it.

        Loading editor
    • What do you mean? I've been fairusing the shit out of everything :/

        Loading editor
    • Well, shit.

      I didn't really stop to think adding it as category would not add the template.

      Is there way to substitute them all automatically with one of your bots? It's a shitload of images to go through again :S
