How You Can Contribute[edit source]

Looking for something to do to improve the Wiki, but you are not sure where to start? Here are some suggestions:

  • Expand a Stub - Some articles are merely placeholders, waiting for someone like yourself to come along and grow them into something more useful. For a list of articles in need of further expansion or revision, see Category:Stubs.
  • Improve Existing Content – Many articles can be improved and expanded upon. You could roam the site looking for articles that you feel are too vague, missing information, or have sentences and paragraphs which need rewording to be more understandable. If you notice information that is missing from an article, add it.
  • Fix Errors - Examples of this would include grammar or spelling mistakes. Large quantities of small fixes can greatly improve the quality of the wiki. Additionally, see Outdated Articles for a list of articles that are not up-to-date with the current version of DayZ, for which revision would be very welcome.
  • Write a New Article – Is there something we're missing? You should add it.
  • Make a Suggestion - Think an article would be better with a different name? Two or more pages should be combined? Maybe something should be removed altogether? Suggest a move, a merge, or a delete.
  • Monitor Articles - You can monitor the recent changes list and/or watch articles to catch and fix mistakes as well as help prevent vandalism.
  • Help Other Users - Many users don't know how to get started with helping the wiki. You could assist them by sharing some of your knowledge, and encourage them to become active and get started with editing.
  • Get Involved in a Project - Head on over to the Projects page and see if there is a larger initiative that you can become involved with here at the wiki.
  • Translate - Expanding the number of languages available to visitors of the wiki is always a priority. To get involved in a translation project or start one of your own, check out the list and get in contact with the project lead or a wiki administrator.

You can find a list of the most useful and most commonly used templates on the DayZ:Templates page.
