MHWiki:Articles needing attention
Articles needing attention lists the various articles around the MH Wiki that need significant contributions from other editors. This page aims to centralize all the tasks that need to be done so that it can more easily be spotted and picked up. Please refer to the respective talk pages for further discussion on the individual tasks in question.
Besides the articles listed here, many of the other pages can do with some improvements. Go ahead and make edits if you feel it will improve the look/layout/information flow etc of the page.
Anyone can add to this page if you spot something that needs improvement. The important thing to remember is to make the task description as clear as possible.
If you decide to work on an article, do add your name to the list so that any other editors who wish to help out know at a glance who is already working on it. If you consider a task completed, please move it to the next table.
|Article||Description of work that needs to be done||Currently being worked on by|
|Papyrus Base - combined stats with all traps|| This base has been out since June - so the tables need to be updated. With the increasing numbers of traps and bases - do we want to continuing providing this?
|Links on various pages|| This is very general work, basically involves adding relevant links to the pages in the wiki to aid navigation. Additionally, a short description of the link should also be included.|
- Article has been outstanding for over 3 months now, some links still require a good description 15:53, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
|Mice Weaknesses|| All the mice need to have the main weaknesses listed.
|Mouse Group / Power Type||Would be nice to improve these articles. No specific ideas/suggestions at this time.|
|Traps||Add special effects column for Weapons and Bases (similar to the Charms layout). Include locational and charms-specific effects. See Talk:Traps#Bases_-_special_charm-specific_properties|
|Events||Re-add weekend events, in their own subsection of the article. Add Ronza's visit in 2009. See Talk:Events#What_Events_Are_-_Clarification.|
|Cheat Sheet|| Needs update for content since October 2011:
This section contains the list of images that need to be retrieved from the game and uploaded to sites such as photobucket or imageshack and linked back from the MH Wiki. Please note that the HitGrab developers have asked that we do not link directly to the game servers, so no direct links please.
Please update accordingly as needed. Status reflects the possibility that some images do not meet the standardized criteria, and thus need a replacement.
NOTE: Aksmet's photobucket account (to which a lot of images link to) is inactive.
|MHWiki:Image Links||A number of images are lacking full resolution pictures, especially for traps and mice images. It would be helpful to fill in the images as well as the updating the relevant wiki article.||Victor.Song|
Please move all completed jobs here for the record, most recent ones below.
|Article||Description of work that was done||Work completed by|
|Trap Setup Options needs to be updated based on Mutated Venus Mouse Trap||MVMT is better than VMT -Multiple locations updated.||Ralphminer|
|Bait Preference||Different cheeses attract mice at different rates depending on the location. In addition some mice have preference or dislike of cheeses. My plan is to confirm the information in the Wiki against the catch rate estimates.||Ralphminer 18:30, 1 August 2009 (UTC)|
|Scoreboard||This page is currently tagged for deletion. The article can be further improved with an explanation of the various functions available in the scoreboard past and present, and thus taken off the deletion list. It will also need proper linking from other pages.||Ralphminer|
|Brie Alchemy Potion||Article needs revamp in a similar manner as Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion||User:Mikeyco|
|Revamp of the various location pages||Currently they are somewhat disorganized. Work needs to be done to get them back in line with each other, along with the creation of a common template for locations that should be followed for additional locations.||User:Mikeyco|
|Navbox for the Editor's Corner||Need a Navbox similar to Template:Location for the articles in the Editor's Corner||User:Mikeyco|
|Starting out||Needs further explanation, including updating of information based on the new newbie introduction process involving a knight called Larry?||User:Mikeyco|
|Larry||This article needs expansion.||User:Mikeyco|
|Mouse Pages||The individual Mouse pages need to be standardized according to MHWiki:Manual of Style.||User:Mikeyco|
|Cheat Sheet||Put locations in order encountered||User:Jimmy|
|Luck||This article needs improvement in light of recent information revealed by Dave in the video. See Talk page.||User:Camomiletea|
|Weapons & Bases Articles||The individual weapon and base pages need to be standardized according to MHWiki:Manual of Style.||User:Mikeyco|
|Hunting Sequence||Hunting Sequence currently makes no mention of the situation in which the baited cheese fails to attract a mouse. This section will need to mention the possibility of cheese going stale, depending on the Cheese Effect of traps.||User:Mikeyco|
|FAQ||FAQ needs fact checking and linking, as well as general cleanup and addition of further questions. It must be noted that almost none of the questions and answers were created by the Developers.||Various Editors|
|Unchristened Ship||Needs in-game description from someone who crafted it. An image from the Crafting inventory would be a plus.||User:Artyom|
|Cheat Sheet||Major updates needed||Camomiletea|
|Cheat Sheet mice section||With the addition of more mice, the mice list is now long enough to warrant additional location segments such that no mouse is without the location header either above or below. Please keep reorganization along alphabetical lines.||User:Camomiletea|
|Various tournament related articles||The following articles need to be expanded: Party Horn, Hunting Party (fix POV), and Tournaments (which will include info about Party Points and the multiplier)||Stinson|
|Ancient|| The page was clearly not written by a native speaker of English. Nothing wrong with that, but it really needs cleanup.|
- Redirected to Ancient (disambiguation)
|Arcane|| Was split into Arcane and Forgotten, in view of coming new Forgotten-type traps. However, work on this project is not done until Forgotten traps are crafted and tested against mice of each power type to determine their effectiveness.|
- Issue resolved. Pages now redirect to Power Type
|Effectiveness||The Tribal Isles mice need to be added.||Pus|
|Various location articles||The location articles such as Mountain, Laboratory, Dojo etc, all require a good expansion of the Hunting Strategy sections with information on the cheese strategy for that location. For example in the Mountain, players using Swiss will earn more than those using Brie, but those using Brie have a slightly better chance to catch the Ninja with the Map Piece with the higher attraction rate.||User:Grexx, User:Ralphminer|
|Effectiveness||Effectiveness table now includes too many locations and mice to be of much use to most players. Work required is to split the global effectiveness table into regional tables. More information can be found under here. Detailed information on how to proceed with the changes has also been listed clearly.||Various Editors|
|Organization of Loot||The Loot page needs checking on the individual Loot articles to see if unimportant Loot with just 1 or 2 lines of description are redirected back to the main article and cleared of their contents. Watch out for loss of information, such as Trivia etc. If in doubt, discuss on the talk page. - Mostly resolved by the merging of stubs into major articles.||Various Editors|
|Blueprints||The article is a little mixed up with player descriptions appended onto the actual in-game descriptions. It would be helpful to use a visual separator, mainly to put the in-game descriptions into italics, and to shift player descriptions below that. See Talk:Blueprints#In-game descriptions. -- Grexx 17:42, 13 January 2010 (UTC)||Niehusa, _m.|
|Birthday (disambiguation)|| We need a page listing all the articles with Birthday in their names, similar to Ancient (disambiguation).
| Cheat Sheet#Weapons|
Cheat Sheet#General store crafting supplies
| Onyx Mallet and Nannybot need to be added to Weapons|
Tiny Platinum Bar needs to be added
|Travel Costs||When MouseHunt updated to Version 3.0, the costs of travel changed|
|Crafting Items#Novelty Items||These Novelty Items (along with related images and the intro section) should be moved to a separate page (they are no longer selectable as crafting ingredients).||camomiletea|
|Individual Weapon and Base articles||Currently, there's a lot of ranking of a trap as compared with other traps of similar power type or ability being stated in the article introduction. This is unnecessary as this information is already clearly presented in the Traps article as Bases and Weapons, and adds extra work in maintaining accuracy on a frequently changing aspect of the game. Additionally, in general it is quite clear which trap is better than which due to the differences, other than the few traps that have a replaceable twin. Thus the work required is removal of the parts that do attempt to rank traps. Discussion here: Talk:Traps#Trap_Ranking||Camomiletea Ralphminer|
|rarely encountered vs infrequently encountered|| There's a little confusion with rarity at the moment due to the introduction of Rare Breeds categorization by the developers. Previously, the word 'rare' wasn't a word used officially in-game, while on the MH Wiki, as Paul mentioned, it referred to the rarity of mice to a specific location. The text might be changed from 'rarely encountered' to 'infrequently encountered' to avoid further confusion. Or maybe we'll just explain the % attraction rate. -Fuqi Koh
|Re-classifying All Mice|| When MouseHunt updated to Version 3.0, mice no longer had power types. Instead, they have been grouped under new group names with mice of similar locations and weaknesses. To reflect this, we should remove power types from all mice pages and replace them with whatever mouse groups the mice belong to. On the page for each group of mice (or perhaps one page on which they are all listed.. not sure yet), we can list the weaknesses of that group. This will be a huge task and could thus be worked on by multiple people so long as they know what each other is doing.
|Various||With new content, a few disambiguations and/or related links might be useful. Such as Knight the Hunter's Title vs. Knight Mouse. There's a Ghost and a Sock Puppet Ghost, Samurai and Clockwork Samurai, two Mage mice (Black and White). There are mice such as Toy Sylvan (related to Sylvan), and Wound Up White (related to White). Burglar and Master Burglar. All the various Lich mice...|
|All Potion articles||With the recent update, it appears that the conversion rate for many of the potions has been changed. The quantity of cheese converted and the amount of gold used needs to be checked for each Hunter's Rank and updated as appropriate. I've already updated the conversion rates of the potions in my inventory for the Lord/Lady rank, but there's still a lot of work to be done.||MearsMan|
|Cheese Preferences|| Like some mice are only attracted to a specific cheese, like the JoD mice. However, the wiki says "Magma Carrier mice have been found to be especially attracted to Spicy Havarti cheese." This isn't true because that's the ONLY cheese it is attracted to. It should be like the Acolyte and Dragon "Magma Carrier mice have been found to be especially attracted to Spicy Havarti cheese, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice.
Others include Lich, Draconic Warden, Whelpling, Masters, and maybe Monster Mouse as well.
Although we take it for granted and that's is common sense that they are only attracted by the cheese, I think it could have been more clearer. -Alex Hung Request from the Forums sound like a good idea -- Ralphminer 12:01, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
|Mice||Mice that list "Gnawnia" (not "Town of Gnawnia") as location need to be double-checked for existence in Windmill since that's a new location in Gnawnia. If they don't exist in Windmill, "Gnawnia" should be replaced with the list of all the old Gnawnia locations prior to Windmilll. Additionally, other mice locations need to be verified: in particular, Pirate (not in TG), Black Widow, Nibbler, mice in Lagoon.||User:Camomiletea|
|Crafting Items||Some items, most notably the blueprints are missing from this article, and need to be added in.||ericb|
|Tower Amplifier||Tower Amplifier needs to be relocated into a separate page. See Talk:Seasonal_Garden for details.||ericb|
|Christmas Collectibles||See Talk:Crafting_Items - the 12 items forming Christmas Cracker Trap are now collectibles, not crafting items, and need to be relocated in the wiki. Meanwhile, see User:Twentypence/Collectibles for a first cut at a reorganization of the Collectibles page.||ericb|
|Special Inventory||Create a central jump-off point for all convertible inventory.||ericb|
|Cheese Preferences||When a mouse is especially attracted, but other cheese work - need to standardize language. Also need to clarify what is meant by no preference, e.g. (from the forums) "No preference means that no special cheese is required for it, or that no cheese biases the population towards it - NOT that any cheese can catch it." So we have three levels here: 1) a particular cheese is required, no other will do, 2) a particular cheese increases the likelihood of encounter, but others may work, or 3) neither.||Various Editors|
Location Quick Reference
| Hunting Strategy section needs to be updated for the Pinnacle Chamber and Lagoon, incorporating the new content (which is a permanent addition). Location Quick Reference also needs an update of the new tasks to do.

14 Dec 2010 UTC
|Stealth Mouse||Great Winter Hunt 2010 version is needed|| User:Draobyek|
17 Dec 2010 UTC
|Winter disambiguation|| We have several mice, a trap skin, winter events and gift boxes, a season in Seasonal Garden, so I think this warrants a disambiguation page.
