Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Projects

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search



A project represents a focused effort by a group of editors to improve a particular part of the wiki. The Guild Wars 2 Wiki is currently still in development and there are a great many areas which need to be filled out and completed, so any assistance on the projects below is greatly appreciated. If you think an area needs improvement and it isn't included in the list below you are most welcome to start another project.

How to make a new project[edit]

Create a new article in the Guild Wars 2 Wiki namespace which has the name of your project. For instance, if you wanted to make a project to change inventory icon formatting to create consistency, you could make a page named "Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Projects/Inventory icon formatting"

The project page itself should be clear on what the project is trying to achieve. It may include things like:

  • An overview of what the project aims to do.
  • A detailed to-do list for the project.

Once the project page is ready, remember to add it to the list of current projects above and to Category:Projects with the appropriate sort key (e.g. [[Category:Projects|Inventory icon formatting]]).
