This Notice Is Important and You Should Read it Before Posting
Wiki editors are not game developers or server admins. We can not help you with in-game issues. If you have a problem that requires developer interference, you should submit a support ticket (click here). Every time someone asks me for help with an issue that isn't wiki-related, I feed a baby Jerboa to my Megalodons, and then I provide a copy-pasted response.
Also, please remember to add ~~~~ to the end of your post and it will automatically sign it. This makes it a lot easier to keep things organized.

Adding comments to Wiki code[]

Hi, I wonder if it is possible to add comments to the lines of code in wiki pages? If so could you please let me know how. Cheers EezaGeeza (talk) 12:08, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

For most pages you can use html comments, which start with <!-- and end with -->. If the page is written in a specific language like lua or javascript, in which case you'd use their comment syntax.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 20:48, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply, there are 2 of us working on the wiki so I can leave comments in the code for the other person. EezaGeeza (talk) 12:13, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

'Notice' or 'Alert' template?[]

Is there a template I could use that would tell readers about important external information related to the page? I'm planning to add a note to the top of theStructures Plus page informing people that Wildcard trying to integrate its features with the vanilla game. A perfect example would be the alert about people posting about ingame issues at the top of your page. 16:09, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Use Template:Ambox. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 16:49, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Yep. Most page notices, including that one, are built off of ambox.

Ads and maps...[]

Some of the map pages have ads that block the right side of the map, normally this wouldn't be an issue but the maps now are starting to get bigger and take up more of the box, ads constantly block the right side of the map and it hides information from anonymous and non-pro accounts. An example can be found here. I've also noticed that some maps do not have this issue... Regardless, is it possible for these ads to be removed for these kinds of pages? 13:45, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

We can't remove the ads, but I can make the maps more responsive so that it's not an issue. I'll take a look at it.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 22:10, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
I made a few changes so that there should no longer be overlap when the siderail is present. Please let me know if there are any additional problems.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 22:52, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
Okay, change of plans. I got the okay to just remove the siderail completely from the map pages.

Mind helping if you can?[]

Hey um I was wondering if you had Ark on PC? if so do you mind helping me by getting pictures I can use for the Biomes page? 19:22, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Just use images that are already on the wiki. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 20:57, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
We don't have half the biome images on the wiki (or if we do they're under bad names). I'm a bit busy with other wiki projects right now though, so it would be some time before I could personally get to this.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 22:02, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
Genie451 is currently working on getting these images. The Wayward Wolf (talk) 22:27, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
Hi i added the missing pictures and also solved some other issues of the page please make sure to end each biome section with the Biome End Template to prevent the site from becoming a mess again. Also thank you for your work there. Keep it up Genie451 (talk) 14:47, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

About translation for other languages[]

I noticed the link of submitting the translation voluntarily on the title Help translate ark into your language, but when I clicked into the link, it showed "Project does not exist or access to this project is limited."

Failed Tribe Page[]

I tried to make a tribe page and it got flagged as spam. Camoman6059 (talk) 02:40, 18 February 2019 (UTC)Camoman6059

I would recommend using the provided preload that comes with creating a tribe through the prompts on either of the tribe directories. In addition to applying proper categories and making your page look less like spam, they also provide some examples of formatting that can help you make your tribe page look better. What you tried to post is a single line of all the info, which both looks like spam to the filters and looks bad to people. Here is a copy of your text, if you didn't save it locally.

Changed my edit[]

Why did you change my edit on Bloodhounds gender when I changed it to what game devs has said and told us?

Is a voice actors word worth more than an employee at Respawn?

Your explanation to changing it was because it apparently was a controversial matter... how? How is it controversial if it is factual? Their gender is unknown or possibly non-binary (At least for the current moment.)

The entire thing begun with someone editing this once and now this page is spreading misinformation and a rooted opinion in the entire community and maybe it is true but we don’t know as of now. It’s a very bold statement of Allegra and it is kind of contradicting to what is stated by game developers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alsiloute Gaming (talkcontribs) at 14:51, 21 February 2019‎ (UTC).

New color ID's and Hex codes[]

Thanks to Lethal and his mod we have managed to determine the new color Ids and values

I was hoping we could update the color ID page of the wiki with the new values. He has already put them into a list form on his mods google docs page.

We have done extensive testing in both single player and multiplayer and determined the ID values list work with admin commands and are in fact the new colors.

Crossout wiki project[]

I've been looking up wiki's for the games I play and I was sorely disappointed when I came across the Crossout Wiki. It looks like it could use some help and I'm planning on helping out a bit up there, but I've run into a... design issue. I'm trying to make a Navbox for the weapons and, currently, it looks like a big mess, you think you could look around in their parameters to see if its possible to make a visual version? I'm basing it off the navbox we have for creatures, I plan to also have the option to switch it to the text version, just like the creature one, but I have no idea how to go about it. Could you enlighten me on that as well? 16:30, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

The manager for that wiki is SurafBrov, so they can help you out if you want to start overhauling stuff over there. I've let them know you're coming, and about your account situation.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 21:09, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
When I went back to continue making the template, I noticed that the rework you did completely borked it, and I can’t seem to repair it... Should I continue with the old format and then try to update it? Scrubbanubnub (talk) 23:09, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean -- borked it in what way? What are you trying to do that isn't working? It should work exactly the same as the navboxes here do: copy the code in the doc onto your new nav page and fill it in as apropriate.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 07:01, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
When I first requested assistance, I had ~50% of it done with the original formatting, but now that you changed the formatting to replicate the ark wiki, i'm not actually sure how to transfer what I had before. If you want, I can paste a small section of it here so you could look over it. 12:53, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
So I managed to figure out how to transfer the data I have while keeping the same sorting method I used... or it works in theory anyway, I'll let you know if something goes wrong. 15:02, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Navboxes and tabbers[]

Is it possible to combine both of these? It would actually be beneficial to not just my (current) project on the Crossout Wiki, but also for the creature table here! Imagine being able to see the creatures that appear on a map in just a single click! But I'm getting off topic; does the formatting allow it currently, or would it require a few reworks? 16:51, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes, they can be combined but will need some CSS to actually look good. I don't think converting the creature nav dropdown menus into tabs would be beneficial, because then the dropdowns couldn't be combined without an ungodly amount of tabs and duplicated data. Talk to Suraf if you want some help setting something like that up for Crossout though.

Dedicated or non-dedicated server??[]

My dad just got an online pass and now plays ARK. We have played split screen tho on single player mode. But now we want to have a server together that we can both get to play online with out NEEDING the other player there...i have my xbox and he has his. Do we use a dedicated server for this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) at 00:01, 12 May 2019‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

In Ark Survival Evolved, it there such a thing as Type as in Type Container?[]


I went on the Structure Table page. I saw a few columns there, wanted to add one and boi was I in for a treat. So I didn't, I do not know how. Still, I did make it a spreadsheet and commited to create a Structure "Category" column to apply a new filter, on my side, to the list. Then I noticed the Structure "Type" on many (not all) of the Wiki pages and noticed that the Types in the Wiki are not uniform then started to create discussion pages... to kinda make it uniform so, when one clicks on a Type under an Infobox Structure i.e.: Vehicule; all the Type Vehicule will be neatly alphabetically displayed akin Type Vehicule. Then I had holes in my "Category" column and I started to verify. I then noticed a little bit of chaos. To make a long story short, in my sheet, I ended up with very few Categories (I renamed it to Type, I like it much better) but there is quite a lot of them in the Ark Wiki and many make no sense or very little. I have Building, Comms, Container, Crafting, Decor, Furniture, Illumination, Transport, Util - Energy, Util - Water and Wpn Sys. I rejected 4 "Structures" out of the 510 in my Spreadsheet: Birthday Cake, Bunny Egg, Dinosaur Bone and Wreath. I'm now planning to visit them all to "see" if all Wiki Structures Type are set and if they match my own spreadsheet (the reason for me wanting to add the Type column in the table page, in my second phrase, up here)

Should I "be bold" or create a discussion page for all "suggested" modifications? My boldness fells very itchy. But I'd rather discuss my "ideas" here, with you, first to achieve a Satisfactory outcome pleasing to most if not all.

I also found a few inconsistencies in the organization i.e.: (/Structures) Item Type Structure Item Tek Teleporter (once clicked on the link...) is a Structure of Type Structure. Please help me make sense of this at

I have a many edits of the sort in store to tie all this boat (boat, Ark... he he) quite thight. I plan to get all Items and inspect them one by one, like a good little beer drinking Bot, but I'm all out of beer. PandemoniumMeltDown (talk) 10:58, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

To answer your original issue, the structure table could be modified such that at includes type, pulled from infoboxes. It might look intimidating but would actually be pretty easy to add. Which leads to your next issue, that the infoboxes are not using consistent or useful nomenclature of types, and you have created a sheet that does, yes? I like the idea of making a more uniform use of that field, and if you share that sheet and we like it, I could even send my bot to make the actual changes to save the time of doing it manually. It might be easier to discuss this further in Discord, where more of our community and admins are active, if that's not inconvenient for you.
-- Mr Pie 5 (talk) 01:12, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Nice. I'll finish my spreadsheet (a 2 day old baby now, still needs polishing and research) then and I'll see you there soon. Cheers.PandemoniumMeltDown (talk) 17:37, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

I want to translate[]

I want to translate it into JapaneseNum9852453 (talk) 04:08, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Cool. You can get started on that at your leisure by creating new copies of pages suffixed with /ja (for example, Longrass would be Longrass/ja) and adding [[Category:JA translation]] at the bottom, then translating the content as you see fit. You can find additional documentation on the process on the help wiki, and let me know if you need any help.

Error:Your edit has been flagged as potential vandalism by the automated language filter and has been prevented. If you believe this to be in error, please contact an admin so they can recover your edit and improve the filter. You do not need to provide the content of your edit in your report, and you will probably trigger the filter if you try - an admin can find the content in the logs.

french wiki for Outlaws of the old west :)[]

Hi Mr Pie 5 :)

And first, thank you for all your work on wiki for game Outlaws of the old west. I should like to help french gamers who feels more comfortable to read wiki in french. So is it possible to have access to a database with all pictures and texts in english, and, with time, to write all in french, and when all is done, to put online a french version of wiki?

I am myself a weak webmaster with CMS phpbb3 and Joomla )))

See you soon for your answer.


Hey, thanks for your interest in translations. There's not really a database in the sense that I think you're looking for, just the wiki as you see it. You can translate into French at your leisure by creating new copies of pages suffixed with /fr and adding them to [[Category:FR translation]], then copying and translating the content of the English page as you see fit. If you don't know how to create new pages, you can search for the desired title in the search box and you'll be prompted to create the page if it doesn't exist, or you can use the input box on the community portal.
For example, say you wanted to translate the Fishing page, you'd create Fishing/fr and add [[Category:FR translation]] to the bottom of the page. After the main page and pages linked from it are translated, and if there's sufficient interest and someone willing to administrate, we can look into creating a dedicated French wiki. For additional information, you can take a look at the help wiki page. Let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

I haven't done singleplayer cheats in a while. If your question is how to open the console, there are instructions for all platforms in the first sentence of Console_Commands#Usage. If your commands aren't working, try the command enablecheats, although I don't think that it's necessary, and the page also says it's not, but couldn't hurt to try.

Ark mobile dungeons[]

Hi Do all dungeons have spiders inside them

Use of key template and the semicolon key[]

I was looking at editing the Controls page and wanted to first become familiar with it and the use of the {{Key}} template. I noticed an issue (at least on my browser) for the display of the ; (semicolon) key (used for the passive whistle). The source looks fine (comparing to the , for move to position), but the resulting html does not. The visual result shows a blank 'key'.

I have looked at Template:Key/library but could not find examples of the semicolon nor other punctuation (e.g. :, !, ?). {Also I got your name from the history page.)

Editing the source of the Controls page and using 'Show preview' still has the issue; however using the {{Key|;}} in this paragraph does work in 'Show preview' ;.

Would you mind looking at this? Also, any tips are welcome.

Thanks, vy700 (talk) 08:55, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Are you saying that ; shows a blank key for you? Because it looks fine to me. What browser are you using?
-- Mr Pie 5 23:21, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes, it shows a blank key for me. Looking at the Controls page that is. On your talk page (here) it displays correctly. This happens both on Chrome and Safari (yes, I am on a mac), but I tried it on my son's Windows machine with the same issue.


, vy700 (talk) 10:07, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Ah, it's gone for me there too, and I think I see the problem. The key template links back to the Controls page, so every key on that page is a self link. There must have been some conflict with mediawiki's handling of a self link and semicolon (since semicolon has MW meaning in some situations). I changed the one on that page to the html code for semicolon so it won't get parsed, and it looks fine now. Thanks for pointing that out.
-- Mr Pie 5 01:35, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Making infoboxes on Gamepedia[]

Hello. I'm very much a Gamepedia editing(and wiki editing in general, though I do have some experience) newby, and I was wondering, how does one make infoboxes on Gamepedia wikis? Is it the same as how it's done on Fandom wikis? If so, sorry for wasting your time. I was just looking into helping out with a recently started wiki(the Sea Salt wiki to be specific) and I wanted to make an infobox template for it, and realized there's no help on how to specifically do that on Gamepedia wikis. Thank you for your time either way!

Failbird109 (talk) 11:34, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi, have a look at gphelp:Templates for general infos and gphelp:Infobox for some examples. I don't know Fandom very good but I guess it's very similar. --Cadaei (talk) 13:50, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

We don't have Fandom's Portable Infoboxes (with the <infobox></infobox> syntax), but if you want something similar you could look at the infobox part templates I use on my wikis and my documentation on using them. Note you'll probably need to talk your manager into using them and copying over the CSS. If you don't like that idea, I see that Cadaei already made you an infobox using the more standard table syntax.

Help needed in Fortnite Wiki[]

An user called Personyass has recently created two hoax pages in the Fortnite Wiki, the Chapter 3 Map and Season 10 Gotham City Violence. The information of both of these pages is false and misleading, so I think they both should be deleted, and the user who created them should probably be blocked so they couldn't continue their vandalism. I know that you are not the manager of the Fortnite Wiki, but the current manager of Fortnite Wiki hasn't been active in a month, and I think the problem needs immediate attention. 08:02, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

Build a german Scum Wiki[]

Hello Mr.Pie, I have been talking to PicayuneCoterie for quite a while now and I have slowly come to the conclusion that I would like to animate a German version of the SCUM Wikipedia. I wanted to start my own domain first and I have already booked it, but I would like to cancel it or add it to this wiki, because I don't need it on my server anymore. Can you give me a subdomain scum-de and the possibility to switch to the german ScumWiki? That would be really great.

Hi, thanks for your interest. Please have a look at the Gamepedia translation guidelines. If you want specifically Simplified Chinese, I believe you would use zh-hans instead of zh for the category and subpage name. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Ark Wiki Korean Translation[]

Hi! I want to translate ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki into Korean. Please let me know what i have to do. :) 까미유미까43711 (talk) 01:20, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. To get started with translations, you can create copies of existing pages with /ko on the end of the page name and add [[Category:KO translation]] at the bottom of the page. See the Gamepedia translation guidelines for more info. There will be template work that needs to be done too, but we'll cross that rickety bridge when we come to it. Let me know if you need any help.

I can't save my editing. Please help me. Your edit has been flagged as potential vandalism by the automated language filter and has been prevented. If you believe this to be in error, please contact an admin so they can recover your edit and improve the filter. You do not need to provide the content of your edit in your report, and you will probably trigger the filter if you try - an admin can find the content in the logs. 까미유미까 (talk) 02:28, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, that thing sometimes doesn't work well on non-English pages. I've added an exception for /ko pages.

Gallery pictures[]

Hello. At the Paladins Wiki, the pictures shown by the slideshow gallery are now much too small after the last media-host migration. Because now gallery with the slideshow mode uses thumbnail images. Normally the size of the outer div box was used. How to fix this? The Slideshow is used for example on the map pages to show screenshots of the map.
Memoryos (talk) 21:59, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi, sorry I didn't notice this message initially. It looks to me like they're small because the gallery isn't actually assigned a size, that's just the default size for slideshow. The fix is to add appropriate widths and heights attributes to the gallery, see the documentation on the Help wiki. I would advise against using slideshow at all though, not only because it exhibits strange behavior, but because clicking through the slideshow is not a good user experience. Better to have all the images displayed for the user to see.

Question on links[]

I'd like to translate a link, but I didn't understand how it's work. For example, existing russian link leads to the existing file with english simbol. (File:Тек Гравитационная Граната (Extinction).png) --->>> (, it's good.

But I wants that my russian link leads to existing file with english simbol. (File:Крылатая ракета (Genesis Part 1).png --->>>

What should I do? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seagull-Sid (talkcontribs) at 04:48, 14 September 2020. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The Russian wiki can use any images on the English wiki as if they were on the Russian wiki. To create Russian names for these files without duplicating the file, you can create a redirect on the English wiki. Here's an example page that you can copy and paste: File:Артефакт_Хитрости.png. The page title is the Russian name to use, and the redirect target in the source is the English name of the file.
So for the image you're asking about, you would create the page File:Крылатая ракета (Genesis Part 1).png and in the source you'd add
#REDIRECT [[File:Cruise Missile (Genesis Part 1).png]]
[[Category:RU image redirects]]
This must be done on the English wiki though (I don't know why, I just know that's how it works).

Unable to Edit Satisfactory Wiki[]

Hi there! I have noticed while browsing the Satisfactory wiki that many of the articles have very unclear and sometimes outright incorrect word choice and sentence structure, as though written by someone who speaks English as a second language. I was hoping to make some simple grammatical and syntactical edits to the articles I read as I play the game, but it appears as though I am unable to make edits on many of these pages (equipment and buildings seem to be the main culprits). I'm new to wiki editing, so perhaps there is something I'm misunderstanding; but is it possible for you to grant me access, or is there perhaps some sort of process one usually goes through first? I would like to start helping in any way I can, so some guidance on what to do next would be helpful regardless.

Thanks!Doomlitigant (talk) 09:52, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I took a look at those pages and your account and I can't see any reason you wouldn't be able to edit; the pages aren't protected, your account isn't blocked, and it doesn't look like you've hit any automated filters. Can you provide more information about what's making you think you're unable to edit? Mr Pie 5 (talk) 20:02, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Minor character in Temtem[]

Hello Mr Pie 5,
I've been the on creating those minor character pages, I've been inspired by the Postal Service page since some minor character have they own pages with minor/copied description. Just for flesh out some they personality and relationship between the character. Some of them have really funny dialogues and quirky personality from a Role-playing point of view. If it is bad that those pages exist, should I help out with deleting them and its links?

The postal service stuff started as separated pages but they're now being compiled together on the postal service page. I should go through and delete and de-link the tiny pages created as part of that as well. I don't think the addition of some funny dialogue or references on a few tamers in addition to their loadout is useful to the user or enough for a full page, but we could look into reworking how the area pages are structured to allow this sort of thing to be added there. We talk often in the wiki-contributors channel in the Temtem Discord, so if you pop in there we could discuss such a rework easier.

Why Federation Exo Helmet Skin picture name is “blank”?[]

This causes me to change other blank images after I update Federation Exo Helmet Skin picture — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wenkaixuan (talkcontribs) at 07:30, 3 April 2021‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

It's being used as a placeholder in the infobox for now, but you can upload the file under the correct name and then edit the helmet page to change the image the infobox is using. See Alex's comment on your profile for more info:

How to connect to private server with Nintendo Switch[]

Dossier images not loading[]

Hello. I have been looking at the Ark Dossiers and the images above the links aren't displaying properly. The first one for Achatina is fine, but the one for Allosaurus only displays the page (looks like a book) background with no image or text on it. None of the other pictures are displaying. You can find this by going to and clicking on "show" under "creature dossiers" then "expand" on the right-hand side for "the Island."

I am using Chrome and have tried cleaning my browser manually and again with CCleaner, since there was no change when I tried it manually. I tried it in Microsoft Edge and the page displayed the same. I have also tried it on another computer in my house and the page appears the same. My internet connection is fine, it's a fiber connection and I can easily access other sites.

I hope you can help. I greatly appreciate it. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) at 20:22, 1 July 2021‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Hopefully Mr Pie 5 doesn't mind I'm answering this: I forced the page to be generated with the new skin, and the dossiers should be loading again correctly. Seems to be a regression on the old skin. Thank you! Alexrmski (talk) 22:07, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
It seems to only break for me if I'm using ?useskin= to change my skin. If I change it through my preferences, all 3 skins will load all images fine. This wiki is in the process of converting to FandomDesktop as the default skin, and has been in a weird position today where some pages are cached on the old skin. I suspect that's what happened to you, and that little skin limbo caused this image problem similar to using the url parameter. The problem should pass on its own within a day.

X-Megalodon color regions[]

Heya, I found the color regions for the X-Megalodon to be inaccurate / wrong.

Given that I dont know how to navigate the edit page and have no experience adding content I thought its the best to just message someone who knows what they're doing.

Can I just send you what info I think should be added?



Hi Mr Pie 5, nice to meet you! My name is Kyrie and I'd like to discuss with you about Wiki. I tried to contact you on discord, but it seems your settings don't accept to be added by others.

I'd like to use the map scripting to plot specific drop locations[]

Hi, never edited a wiki before or reached out like this so I hope it's alright. I was tooling around with Beacon, a GUI that makes some server editing easier, especially supply drop loot tables. I asked around their discord and an admin provided me with the JSON code for the supply drops, and it made me want to create a more specific mapping for them. I imagine the maps you have on the wiki now use the same logic, so I was hoping you'd let me take a look and see if I could plot them using this JSON. Essentially it would just help people narrow down the drops more specifically on a per-map basis, as different rarities only appear in certain locations and some location groupings have a wider/narrow range of rarities that are allowed to spawn in those locations. It sounds a bit wordy now that I'm typing it out, but I'd love to show you what I'm talking about. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) at 02:54, 8 March 2022‎ (UTC).
