Our focus is now on ensuring that all base-game articles are accurate and well written, in preparation for Rain World: Downpour. Note that we are not adding Downpour articles until release to ensure quality and accuracy of information.

I don't know much about the history of the rain world wiki, may I ask why the English wiki moved here from fandom?🙂 Sunny Old Wang (talk) 03:47, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Link to Endings

Hello, I was wondering if my page about the endings of rain world (Endings) could be put on the main page. It isn’t finished, so it is fine if you decline. Cattheo (talk) 19:40, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, welcome to the wiki! (If you don't mind, I moved your question to a new section in order to organize things a bit :>)
This page is a good idea, right now information about the endings is relatively scattered across various other pages like Plot, Void Worms, Lore of Rain World, Art... And so on. It's good to gather it somewhere and make it less confusing!
But as you said it isn't finished yet, and since the main page is supposed to make a good impression, it should link to what we do have, more than what we are making.
And also, I think Endings seems a little too specific to put there - I would suggest linking to a more general plot page from which you could find the endings, among other things. Though for now even the Plot page isn't complete either; it's being thought about! I think making it a hub page would be nice. But either way it's true that linking to story-related pages would be a good idea, we'll try to figure out how exactly.

Ok, Thankyou for replying. I did see that there was information about the endings in the lore section aswell, but I thought that it would be a good idea to make another page especially for it. If you want, I can look around for maybe a better place to put the endings page (maybe inside another page, or add a link onto another word) but in the meantime I’ll try and complete the page soon.
Also, how do you add those notices where it warns at there’s major plot details about something (e.g. 5P), because I do think that would be a good thing to warn people about as the entire page is about the ending of the game. Cattheo (talk) 07:15, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think the Endings page is fine where it is, but I haven't heard a lot of opinions, it depends on what others think.
For spoiler notices, we use a template! In visual edit mode, you should be able to insert one from the toolbar. Our templates aren't really optimized to be used in visual edit mode though, for now they don't have descriptions or anything - I'll try to tackle the issue when I can but in the meantime this page should help. The process is different but the parameters remain the same; for example, to add a fitting notice for the whole Endings page, you can insert a Template, choose the one named Spoiler, write "ending" as the first parameter, then "original" as the second one.
Oh by the way, if you haven't yet, I would recommend reading the Style Guide! Among a lot of various things to keep in mind while editing, it also mentions some templates and where to use them.

About the pictured used on the blue lizard

I have a question so in the Hostile section of Creatures you can see that the picture used is a Blue Lizard falling was that intentional as in did you guys do it cause it's funny

Me and a friend been discussing about it and I wanted to know Darlex (talk) 20:40, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It wasn't planned to be like that but I think the picture happened to be taken at the perfect moment and we all loved it haha. --Candlesign (talk) 01:21, 23 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nice lmao Darlex (talk) 13:17, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

a little request about translating

Is the main page(/Rain_World_Wiki) ready for translation? If so, could anyone who has the permission mark it for translation? Whoking (talk) 23:25, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done! (Though I can't guarantee that it will be convenient to translate haha, it's filled with a lot of links and formatting) --Candlesign (talk) 14:12, 1 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for that! Whoking (talk) 07:58, 4 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

InlineIcon changes

To help fix the InlineIcon errors for the main page, the following markup:

<div>The comprehensive '''Rain World''' guide for [[File:Lizards_icon.png]] [[Creatures]], {{InlineIcon|Regions}}, [[File:XboxSeriesX A 05.png|18px]] [[Controls]], {{InlineIcon|Slugcat}}s, [[File:RWPearl.png]] [[Objects]], and much more, created and maintained by the community.</div>

Should be changed to:

<div>The comprehensive '''Rain World''' guide for {{Creature/Icon|Lizard|noalt=1|nolink=1}} [[Creatures]], {{Region/Icon|Outskirts|noalt=1}} [[Regions]], [[File:XboxSeriesX A 05.png|18px]] [[Controls]], {{Slugcat}}s, {{Object/Icon|Pearl|noalt=1|nolink=1}} [[Objects]], and much more, created and maintained by the community.</div>

Unfortunately a bit wordier, but at least it's closer to what we have elsewhere. LtDk (talk) 01:18, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(This was done by User:Bewilderbark! Thank you!) LtDk (talk) 00:47, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Currently, this is one of the only uncategorized pages on the entire wiki. Could you add {{TranslatedCategory|Rain World Wiki}} to the bottom of the page, outside the translation tags? LtDk (talk) 00:49, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done... --Candlesign (talk) 18:45, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

More icon changes

Could an admin update {{Slugcat}}s to say {{Creature|Slugcat|plural}}? Thank you! LtDk (talk) 21:38, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

...and done! --Candlesign (talk) 18:45, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Translation demands

Hello! I'm opening this talk about demands regarding translation, mostly for protected pages. For now, I'm only asking about the page to be marked for translation (only the non-link parts though!) and also to change the way the uppermost left wiki icon works to be the one of MyLanguage and redirection to MyLanguage/Rain World Wiki if possible!

BIG!! Wern moment (talk) 20:07, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A bit late but done! I think we forgot to update news for a while haha. --Candlesign (talk) 04:09, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Updating translation sections

Right now, this page is not very well set up for translation; it includes lots of the page markup in the translation blocks which can make translating confusing, and lead to potential errors.

I've made an updated version of the markup that's more easily translatable here: User:LtDk/Rain_World_Wiki

If you could update the page to use this instead, I would appreciate it! Unfortunately, this will require moving over the existing translations, but I'm happy to do that once someone makes the update. LtDk (talk) 00:01, 9 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Late but I just realized I hadn't posted a reply here so here is one for the record (and as an update to my reply to this): done! --Candlesign (talk) 23:23, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
