Project improve is a project to improve the wiki in phases. Each phase will hopefully be helped by other users of this wiki to improve it. Note that a "Check mark2" in a header of a phase means that the phase is completed; a "X mark2" in a header of a phase means that the phase is not completed.

Check mark2Phase I

This phase is getting rounded corners added to every template. See User:Clubchloe1/Project roundy for info on how to.

Check mark2Phase II

Phase II is for the admins', to get up RSS codes on the not rounded cornered parts of this wikis look rounded.

X mark2Phase III

This phase is changing the style of articles, like this:

For Demons:

A short intro about which games the demon is encountered in, and which category of demons it belongs to.
The demon's first encounter and appearance.
The background story of the demon, extracted from the Bestiary Entry. At an appropriate location (usually at the end of the section), a citation which contains the Bestiary Entry is inserted. And no, the real life legends, folktales, etc don't go here. They belong to the Trivia section.
==Bestiary Entry==
Only <references/> here, acting as a source for the citation in the Background section.
Now, don't pick the old hack'n'slash strategies. The strategy that is prefered heavily relies on farming techniques.
(May or may not be necessary) 
The real legends, folktales, etc that the demon is based on.

For Bosses:

A short description in appearances, and majority and importance in story, if possible.
This section only has description on the boss' appearance. The encounter will go into Story, contrary to that of the demons.
Any backstory and history, and the boss' story in-game.
==Bestiary Entry==
We don't use <references/> here. Instead, just the plain entry.
Max on farming, like demons.
Anything that doesn't belong to any other section.

We are still working on other style of articles for other types. Please, if you have any suggestions, please enquire on this pages talk page for other types of styles.

X mark2Phase IV

This phase is getting all images on this wiki transparent. If you are a person that knows how to, then please, do so. This phase is also making summary templates, and the summary must now be in a section, like this:

The summary template here
The licensing template here

If there is no summary template made for whatever picture you are uploading, then please just state in text what the picture is. All images should be converted to PNG file type, and no, re-uploading the image and saving it as PNG does not make it PNG. Also, after this phase, please correctly name images you upload. We are taking this very seriously because how many misnamed files there are. Any of the listed names of an image will not be accepted:

  • Jokes
  • Not related to its topic
  • Random numbers/random letters

If we find images that are named and qualify the above, then we with either move or delete them and the user who uploaded it will be warned. We will enforce this law by blocking users who repeatedly upload images like this.

If you are wondering why PNG's are going to be used instead of JPG's, please refer to Okami Wiki:File extension transition from JPG to PNG.

X mark2Phase V

This phase is going to be done after all other phases are done. This phase is promoting the wiki to appear on Wikia's main page! See User talk:Clubchloe1/Projects to-do list to submit your suggestions for the description, and various other things that you think will make a good impression on readers of it!
