This page is a translated version of the page Help:Editing and the translation is 26% complete.

Outdated translations are marked like this.

Donc, vous voulez m'aider à modifier le wiki pour le garder à jour ou ajouter plus d'informations. Parfait! La communauté de Towns apprécie vraiment.

Toute édition nécessite un compte utilisateur (pour aider à réduire le spam). Prenez un moment pour vous inscrire et vous pouvez commencez à éditer!

The areas that need the most attention are on the To Do list.

Ou si vous recherchez une page qui n'existe pas, et que vous manquez d'expérience et de connaissance pour le faire vous-même, créez une page vierge et ajoutez la à cette catégorie: Catégorie:Pages demandées, et un éditeur se débrouillera pour créer éventuellement une page.

Normes de TownsWiki

Pendant l'édition ou la création de pages veillez à respecter les conseils suivants car l'uniformité aide vraiment les utilisateurs à trouver et comprendre les informations.

Making multiple edits to a single page

If you are changing a lot on a single page (eg, creating a new page, updating the main page with new links/formatting, etc), use the Show preview function shown under the edit window, or the Preview tab shown above the edit window. This will show you a preview of the page including all the changes you have made - allowing you to see if they work BEFORE you submit. Only submit the page once you are completely happy with it - this will help keep clutter down on the Special:RecentChanges page.

Include summaries in edits

When editing, pay attention to the Summary: box located under the edit window. Including a summary in this box each time you edit can prove incredibly useful to other editors - they can see at a glance the kind of edit you did to a page. Some examples of good summaries are:

  • Added image/removed stub template
  • Fixed typos
  • Added section on weretigers

Some examples of bad summaries are:

  • edited page
  • added info
  • did some stuff

Try to be descriptive with your summaries.


The game files are a great place to find accurate information regarding many of the ingame items and entities, but it takes some getting used to, to be able to draw out useful information.

  • The "*.xml" files in Towns\data is a good place to find statistics.
  • The images in Towns\data\graphics is a good place to find high quality images of everything. Note that some items have a color filter on them so in-game images must be taken.
  • The "graphics.ini" file in Towns\ shows what item corresponds to which part of which image file. It also indicates what color filter is used.

Adding references, citations or quotes from the forum

When adding a quote from the official towns forum (http://www.townsgame.com/forums) try and make sure you cite who said it, date, if it effects a specific version, and a link to a the forum in a reference.

You can add a reference by doing the following:

"However, it has been confirmed on the forums that this will be changed 
in a later update.<ref>Posted by <user> on <date>: http://www.townsgame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=537#p2999</ref>"

Which will show up like this:

"However, it has been confirmed on the forums that this will be changed in a later update.[1]"

Once that is done you need to make sure at the bottom of the page to include a tag so that the references appear:


Which will show up like this:
