    Hello everyone! So as it is tradition, after every major update the Wynn wiki end up being very outdated in some areas. We'd like your help to update it a little bit now that you all had time to get used to the new update.

    The profession page is probably the one needing it the most. We also changed a lot of quests and quest rewards this update (even the miniquest XP/discoveries XP got changed a few weeks after release), so that might need some attention too. But in general, a lot of info is slightly outdated and scattered on many pages, which is why we need many people to look around and find them.

    That's all I had to say, just wanted to highlight the fact that the wiki needs some attention. Thanks a lot if you decide to help/already helped with it! We always see your contributions here and appreciate it!

    There's also a Wiki discord server to help editing and keep formatting proper. It's also very useful for translations work, give it a try: https://discord.gg/WXBx8yk

    Cool, but I would like if there is a guide on the forums that shows an overall view on how to start editing.

    Something like:

    Spoiler - Tips & Tricks
    Something something

    Spoiler - Editing quests
    Something something

    Spoiler - Editing professions
    Something something

    Edit: I am aware that there is a guide on the wiki but If there is a guide on the forums it will be much easier to ask a question and to get the general idea of how to edit.

    If that page isn't enough, then refer to pages that are of the same type as the one you want to make. Documenting a mob? Look at the source of other mob pages. Reading up on the templates helps as well, you can find them here: https://wynncraft.gamepedia.com/Category:Templates

    Attention all new recruits! The Wynn Province is in grave danger and it needs your help. The Corruption is going to destroy the province... like the Decay did to my home Gavel.... it was beautiful. But now..... there's no time to mourn. I offer a solution to prevent our total extinction. A small price to pay for salvation. To help me on my mission, all you need to do is hand over those elemental crystals. But you gotta be quick, so that I can simply combine all 4 and half the population of the zombies will cease to feel... good. And I call that... Epic Mercy. And then, I will finally dab... and watch the Sun rise... on a grateful province.

    I know of these and they were helpful, but what I meant was a thread on the forums to advertise (?) the wiki and give a general idea about how to edit specific things.

    I would edit the wiki if doing so didn't require so much hassle... all the anti-spam "protections" make it all but impossible to edit.

    To be honest, I have no idea which spam protection stuff you are talking about. You open a wiki page click edit source in the top right and voila you can edit the post.
    Are you using an account? If not I assume that might be why.

    Could be the lack of an account (but that's yet another one to keep track of...). I'll test it out with an account I suppose.

    Oh well then...
    Well I cant tell you much more I guess. I mean Twitch is a platform for people who share the stuff they are doing (games, something in real life and a lot more) in livestreams in interaction with the people who are watching and commenting on the streams. But thats pretty much it.

    Nobody is forced to translate, but if you want to translate you are very welcome to do so even though there are not too many quests left to translate into french I think. Its recommended to join the discord server that is mentioned not only for the translation team to keep track of who is translating, but also for you to get answers to potential questions.
