From YPPedia
Revision as of 22:09, 24 October 2006 by Pauling (talk | contribs) (New features missing)

This is a wishlist for YPPedia things that are needed to help make pages better. Please categorize your requests by type. If you can fulfill a request in the immediate future, just zap that item off the list. For more in-depth projects such as complicated templates, put your name down as working on it in case someone else is looking to assist with ideas.


PNG is the preferred image format.


  • Screenshots of the tiny minimap versions of housing. (Name using Right/Left-Housename-Mini.png)


  • Some island images missing or need new ones with ocean background.
    • Azure
    • Indigo


  • Various Brigand King trinkets as seen in portraits


We're looking for PNG images of the following Brigand King trinket colors so we can complete the color charts:

  • Barnabas the Pale
    • Music Box of Lamentations
      • Red
      • Orange
      • Aqua
      • Blue
      • Violet
  • Gretchen Goldfang
    • Lucky Rabbit's Foot
      • Orange
    • Salt Shaker
      • Blue
  • Vargas the Mad
    • Jigsaw Puzzle Piece
      • Red
      • Orange
      • Aqua
      • Blue
      • Violet
    • Reading Pipe

      • Orange
      • Aqua
      • Blue
      • Violet
    • Siren's Comb
      • Red

      • Aqua
      • Blue
      • Violet
  • The Widow Queen
    • Rose Goddess Perfume
      • Orange
      • Aqua


  • Pictures of Brigand King swabbies (male and female, when they differ)
  • Picture of sea-battle board showing either <Brigand King> or <Barbarian King>



  • Guppymomma has the 76 images for it (at least the standard varieties for a house) and will add some diagonal lines for use in ship floorplans.
  • Barrister is planning on working on the template.
  • If you wish to take up the cause of this project, give Guppymomma a holler.


  • A template for unofficial non-Three Rings parties would be handy dandy :)
  • There's a template for adding blockades to the blockade history pages. It would be good to have directions on how to add a blockade to those pages on each history's talk page.

YPPediazation of Forum Things

For those search-fu masters out there who would like to also gain some wiki editing skills:

  • Duty puzzle bake-off could use some filling out as to the previous bake-offs that have occurred.
  • There are a lot of fanart comics out there. It would be nifty to have pages about each comic in the Art namespace and even an artist article talking about the artist in the same namespace.
  • Ultimate Avatar Chef Contest - it would be nice to have the round winners as well as the recipes & the winner's full set.
  • PotC Spoof Video Contest
  • Pages for the new concepts mentioned by Cleaver that're being discussed in different threads. Tag the articles as things not yet in the game, but under development & discussion. Add any information that's been mentioned with a link to the post (ie Cleaver's post in the sea monsters thread saying all the battles'll be sinking) to make it a good reference for those interested in those discussions. http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=45278


Indigo Ocean Island Pages

Housing Floorplan Data

  • Help getting the data for the floor/wall usability is needed for most of the housing types.
    • Cabin (left-facing)
    • Bungalow (both)
    • Cottage (left-facing)
    • Row House (left-facing)
    • Townhouse (both)
    • Manor (both)
    • Villa (both)
    • Mansion (both)
    • Estate (both)

Wiki Use Tutorials

There are various subjects that could use tutorials and screenshots with pointers to illustrate them:

Other tutorials & Howtos

  • Forum
    • Posting, replying & editing
    • Private messages
    • Searching
  • Game
  • Tutorial contest cleanup
    • Integration or deletion of the various entries from Astrolabe's contest. Many can be found by looking at Special:Uncategorizedpages.
    • Carpentry tutorial needs some fixing of the tips tables & other formatting issues that don't render well at 1024x768.

Technical Issues Articles

Some articles covering the more common technical issues would be a great addition, use the discussion page here if you have questions.

Paying jobbers in blockades

A section on paying jobbers & the different methods folks have used (and their issues) would be useful in blockade coordination.

New blockade features

A section describing the new event blockade interface and the blockade jobber pay features would be useful, such as detailing how each different payscale works. --Pauling 15:09, 24 October 2006 (PDT)


  • Some sort of a nice little quick links table template thingee listing all the parlor game player lists or something. Probably best to do things like Hearts Cobalt, Midnight, etc. instead of using the full names. Maybe even include the skellie lists and not call it parlor game lists. This is to let folks browsing one list know of the existence of the others.

Policy on Events

  • Develop a policy that governs which types of event are suitable for the Y!PPedia, and how to go about staging one. The confusion over the Tutorial Contest seems to make this necessary; much of the confusion could have been completely averted if policy, guidelines, and a procedure was in place. (For example, I'd recommend that meeting up with a designated administrator should be a requirement to using the wiki for an event, just to address technical and practical issues, and to minimize disruption to the day-to-day.)


  • List of brigand king skellies (similar to the one for ships).
