    • I haven’t been a part of any Discord server for GD or derivatives so I can’t really comment on this matter.

  • "Guys, you are not going to believe what just happened to me [yesterday]..... 0_o
    Now, some of you may have noticed my "editing rampage" over the last couple of hours. This is because I really want the Edit Grinder badge, which is achieved by making 100 edits in a single day.
    Long story short, that is exactly what I just did. ^_^"

    P.S: Speaking of badges, why doesn't YOUR wiki have them? :/

  • 1:51 AM here. I got two exams later on today. Strings and English. I am not ready for this. Why am I awake. I need to rest. But I am still awake and am going to deprive my energy.

    I have lost my mind.

    Help my sanity aaaa ;-;

    • If you are okay with me adding you on discord, let me know your 4 digit tag. Otherwise it'll be difficult. Or, if you want to add me yourself, the tag is above. Just make sure to let me know who you are :3 thanks!

    • When you can play Presto from Summer of the Four Seasons, let me know. :P I play piano myself.

      I just need to make some adjustments to some of the transporter images, then we'll well on our way. How do you think we should go forward with level and coin location images as well as videos?

      I'll allow you to follow up Shenron's case however you want. Your arguments are strong enough to justify heavier penalties, particularly his use of alternate accounts, which in this instance you could follow up with Fandom staff if you feel it appropriate. Otherwise, you could take the Darkrai approach and block on sight since he's had countless warnings in the past. Just be sure to communicate your intentions.

      I recently added area triggers (the letter blocks are like passive triggers) to the article and reorganised the colour trigger section. Indeed, there's some work to do, although I have finalised Level Components (we're not getting anymore sprites because it's becoming impractical on our end to extract every last asset introduced over the last few major updates), Portals has been done for ages, and it shouldn't take too long to go over Transporters once I get around to it. Soon, we'll have the Level Elements category complete! Secrets are also riding close too.

      User Accounts is definitely a WIP since it's got unorganised sections dropped in which were created separately by a helpful contributor. You may want to look over that, and yeah, certainly, moderators would be good to mention. I know little about what they can do myself.

  • Hello, it's me again from the Geometry Dash Fan Wiki! How is this sister wiki holding up so far? :3

    So, remember the tips you gave me for improving our wiki? The other staff and I, along with a couple of new crucial staff members such as MrNimportnawak and Mjaydenkim, tried to follow your suggestions as best as we could. Let me update you on the situation so far:

    -MrNimportnawak said (I think) he shall remove all the red-links from the wiki, as well as the unused photos and videos. The end result was.... I don't know how to describe this. https://geometry-dash-fan.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Insights/wantedpages

    Yeah, apparently there are template red-links that I have no idea how to remove for some reason. :V

    -MrNimportnawak, Parkour2906, and others have started deleting a lot of stub pages, beinging the wiki to around 820 pages. However, we also need pages on the Map Pack levels and Gauntlet levels. So, should we wait until most of the stub pages are deleted, then work on them? :/

    -None of the staff (including me) know how to properly make gameplay sections, which is a crucial element many of our pages lack. Perhaps you could lend a couple of your best editors to help us out?



    Yeah, I think that's pretty much it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    -Protostar

    P.S: I might as well update you on my current in-game stats too. I recently hit 4,000 stars! ^_^

    • Just keep working down the list removing expired links. As mentioned previously, you can use Linksweeper to help (it no longer works on threads though).

      Anyone who knows what they're doing, has a bit of time and willing to put in the effort could have all the stubs cleared over a few days at most. Elect someone onto it and just have them process Special:Shortpages until everything's trimmed out. Compile more broad articles if need be (eg. Ship, Ball, UFO articles merged onto a Forms or Portals article).

      As someone who is very focused on gauntlet levels, it would be productive to create articles for them (you're talking up to 75). The main thing is providing a quality video walkthrough and specifically providing user coin guides, as that is what I often find myself seeking help with. (Levels where you cannot find user coins without the use of a guide are badly designed. Don't make levels like that. :P )

      Gameplay sections can be structured in several ways. How I've done it here is very descriptive-formulaic and mostly minimal, depending on how easy the level is. It'd make more sense as a less formal wiki to be less structured and to just make them easily readable. You're talking an endless number of levels so you'd be hard pressed aiming for consistency, so really you have quite a bit of freedom to write how you want.

      My primary tip is that you focus on what readers are focused on. You may have 800+ articles, but only 38 of them have more than 100 viewers per week, and just 10 of them with more than 200 viewers. Objectively speaking, there is little point investing efforts into that which receives a minimal audience. Focus intently on those 10 articles and you achieve more than scouring the whole wiki for expired links or fixing the gameplay sections of 50 levels which hardly anyone reads.

      Good work with your stars! I'm finally reaching 2,500 diamonds and 35 bonus shards.

    • Here is how I plan to format Gameplay.

      Example: The level starts with a series of rotation objects surrounding the user.

      • [0%-Percentage/Name of user]: [Description of part]
      • [Percentage-percentage/Name of user]: [Description of part]
      • [Percentage-100%/Name of user]: [Description of part]

      User coins should be in a sub-section, like this:

      User coins (Depends) 

      Describe how to get all the coins here, like this:

      • User Coin 1: At [Percentage], [Description in no more than 2 sentences].
      • User Coin 2: At [Percentage], [Description].
      • User Coin 3: At [Percentage], if the player [Description].




      Opinions? :V

    • Looks fine to me. Compared to here where introductions of components are mostly talked about, you'd want to be highlighting the difficult sections. If you choose be relatively subjective, you can discuss techniques to clearing those sections as well.

      By the way, I like your user page mastheads on the unofficial wiki. A refined design.

  • 1. How do i unlock the secret gaunlets and community shop?

    2. The Challenge is Normal because when i beat it, it has 3 stars.

    3. I'm too dumb to make my own texture pack, just because i need Adobe Photoshop or paint.

    • Needs to be 1920x1080px.

      If you’ve got a Plus iPhone or play on Steam, you should be able to acquire the images at this resolution.

  • Hi Hackey! Long time no talk. My schoolwork has died down these last...two(?) days, and so I've been visiting the wiki a little.

    To continue the tradition started last year, I was thinking about creating a GD Level Survivor for 2018. We had one last year about it and it was a great success for the forums.

    I was hoping that this year, in order to make this a little bigger and to make this more of a highlightable post maybe we could feature the winners on the wiki's home page? My other wiki did that, and I'm not as sure as to how things ran here.

    Glad to see everything is still running great here! :D

    • Hey Prime

      Actually, The Enigma will take a while. I plan to end it within Part 10.0. So far, we are in Part 1.1, so that's gonna take a long time to accomplish. I'd suggest you start with the GD Level Survivors again :) And then once that's done, then we could make some more activity for The Enigma.

    • I'll be ready with a highlight tonight then! :)

    • If you can reply as soon as possible, that would be lovely. I don't want chaos to ensue just for a page, but I don't want to remove the ability of editing for regular users too.

    • I've locked the page as a restricted use for Staff only. There has been quite some chaos in editing lately, where people fight over the information being placed in the page, whether or not it is factual and true. And this includes speculations, in which I believe I am at fault for bringing. My apologies.

      The protection will last for 1 week in an attempt to subdue the chaos. If you do not approve of this, feel free to revert it. This decision was not just mine, but many other users as well, especially the two moderators that serve this wiki.

    • No problem. I've also noticed that Cube129.png isn't perfectly straight, but leans a bit towards the left. Due to that, the lines on the top right corner aren't as thick as those in the remaining corners. Could you please do something about it? Would highly appreciate it.
