How to Help

The best way to help out right now is filling out and creating new pages. I tend to click the search button and then the random page button and then fill that page in with what I can. The main things we want in are the infoboxes. Here is a page on how to fill in infoboxes.

Automation of Infobox

Information

Automation of infoboxes will be done with inclusion of the csv exporter within the games code. This can export a lot of data about the weapons, armour and items from Veloren and with help from the extension DataTransfer, which can import csv files to create pages.
Templates and Template Documentation More templates are needed to make the wiki easier to contribute to and documentation on all templates are needed too.
