If you want to move, rename, replace or delete a page that you see that is under a real reason then it can be requested here.

**URL:**
**Move, Rename, Replace, or Delete:**
**Reason:**

1) No profanity, inappropriate material, or illegal content.
2) No harassment.
3) No trolling.
4) No spamming (advertising, bumping, and multi-posting included, see below).
5) Staff may delete and lock messages at their discretion.
6) No posting unreleased items.
7) Please be accurate.

1) No profanity, inappropriate material, or illegal content.

We are a community that would like to be as professional as possible on site. This means pages and forums should be as neat as possible and kept related to the game.

Any swearing, whether spelled out, placed in an acronym, and/or censored, or placed in a graphical image/offsite link, is prohibited.

This includes linking to any sites that may violate the rules. If you have any doubts whatsoever about the appropriateness of the content you want to post, don't post it.

  • adult-oriented content
  • content that breaks any laws
  • copyright infringement (many MP3s, ROMs, etc.), warez, CD keys, cracks, passwords, serial numbers, etc.
  • gambling and drugs
  • hacking materials and information
  • selling Unturned accounts
  • terrorism (promotion/carrying it through)
  • trojans, viruses, worms, and other such harmful things

2) No harassment.

Harassment is defined as specifically targeting another player or group of players to harm or inconvenience them. As harassment can take many forms, the moderators will make a determination as to whether or not a "reasonable person" would feel harassed and act accordingly. Actions which would be considered abuse include but are not limited to:

  • Sexual Abuse or Harassment
  • Attempting to Defraud
  • Personal Abuse

3) No trolling.

Trolling is posting with the intent to cause a negative reaction in an individual or group of people. This can take the form of pointlessly spamming a thread or a more directed form of posting something you know is likely to upset them. If you don't have any serious things to contribute to the conversation, stay out of it. In other words, do not post anything intended to provoke someone into replying negatively.

4) No spamming.

Please keep threads on a topic related to the board you are posting in, and replies relevant to the topic you are replying to.
This also includes re-adding your removed edits over and over (please PM any wiki mod instead so you may know why your edits are being removed, but please DO NOT spam in our pages).

5) Staff may delete and lock messages at their discretion.

Part of the job of moderators is to keep the boards clean. Messages deemed inappropriate, old, or off topic may be deleted/locked by moderators at any time.

6) No posting unreleased items.

Any unreleased information or information gathered through cheating (datamining, etc) will not be tolerated. If anyone does publish such information in any way or form, they will lose their ability to post on this wiki. This applies to all items and details when they are obtainable only through illegal methods such as cheating.

That also means that personal pages, fanfiction, clans, and the like do not have a place on this site. This Wiki is an encyclopedia that documents in-game features — anything else is irrelevant and will be deleted.

Occasionally, a few unreleased items will be approved such as Nelson's Shirt.

7) Please be accurate.

It is a pain for everyone if people do not follow templates or post inaccurate information. This is not a race, so please check and recheck all information you post for new releases, and make sure they follow the same format as the majority of other similar categorical entries.

Unturned Wiki Rules by TheBanHammerTheBanHammer, 24 Aug 2016 05:44

Creating/Editing a Page

The first step is creating a page, that can be done two ways:
1. Type in the page name you want in the address bar
(i.e. http://unturned.wikidot.com/whatever-page-name-you-want <- Do NOT use this link, it's just an example. Dashes can be replaced by spaces as they work the same way)
2. On the right side of the screen is a sidebar. You can add a text in the new page section to create a new page.
(i.e. (Input) "whatever-page-name-you-want" and it will create it to http://unturned.wikidot.com/whatever-page-name-you-want)

If you want to edit a page that's already been created, find that wiki page and scroll down to the bottom of it. There should be an "Edit" button Click on the Edit button in order to edit the page.

Please keep in mind that there are some pages (such as the sidebar, the Site Members page, the homepage, etc.) that cannot be edited by normal wiki editors. Please feel free to PM a staff member if you're unsure.

The second step is understanding how to templates are:
2. Past items, vehicles, and so on have the general idea of how the templates are done. You can use templates (created by administrators) when creating a new page and opening the template drop down menu. Templates way be changed overtime and items will need to be updated to fit it.

Q: How can I find the information like 'Player Damage' or 'Animal Damage'?
A: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Unturned\Bundles

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Unturned\Bundles\Items\Melee\Axe_Camp\Axe_Camp.dat (Would be where you get damage information)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Unturned\Bundles\Items\Melee\Axe_Camp\English.dat (Would be where you get item name and description)

Similar thing can be done for finding icons of the items.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Unturned\Extras\Icons
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Unturned\Extras\Econ

[/<insert name> <Insert Name>]
(i.e) [/items Items]

can be used to directly link a unturned.wikidot link.

At the end of editing a page, you should leave a short description of changes. It will help future editors and players know what has changed overtime from updates or been fixed from a typo/error.

Every item/object/etc should have it's own page. Unless specified by the moderator+ team. An example is some vehicles like Offroader or Hatchback, it has multiple colors so it's listed all on one page with IDs to Color.


Templates

Templates are straightforward. It gives the wiki editors quick access to the way the wiki information system.

If you have any trouble or questions, check out previous related inputs then contact a staff member if you continue to have any problems.


Parenting

Parenting pages (like tags) helps keep the wiki organized, and they also play in a role in making some of our automatically-updating pages, index lists, and other functions around the wiki work. This section will be explaining how it's done.

To set a parent on a page, do the following steps:

1. Click Options (located at the bottom of the page)
2. Click Parent
3. Enter the page you wish to parent to
4. Click "Save".

You can only parent to pages that currently exist, so be careful of any typos you might make.

(i.e) [/bow-barrel] Bow Barrel parenting is shown as:
Items » Attachments » Barrels » Bow Barrel

It should always parent back to the main topic which is shown on the top bar menu.
(Homepage, Items, and so forth)


Images

Images that can be found in game files are required to be used instead of screenshot. Images like animals and vehicles have to be screenshot from in-game. It's recommended to get it from multiple angles and with good lighting.

Creating a testing map in the map editor and adding spawns or objects is the best way to achieve that image.

Use .png files as they are the best looking and can handle transparency.

Uploading images to websites such as Imgur (Keeps images forever - until it is requested to be taken down) Copy the direct link then add .png to the end.

Cropping should not be overdone but not left too wide. A few pixel distance between the edge and item/vehicle/etc is good enough. Don't crop it to the edge of the item/vehicle/etc.

Helpful Resources

Alphabetizer - Put a list of items into alphabetical order.
Alphabetizer Numbers - Removes all numbers in a list to give you just item names.
Notepad++ - A Notepad replacement that is extremely useful. (RECOMMENDED)
Imgur - A website to host images (RECOMMENDED) [Recommended to have an imgur account to have a list of all your uploads]

If you have any helpful resources that you think would be useful for everyone else to know. Contact a staff member.
