Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

This is a list of frequently asked questions about using and contributing to the EpicDuel Wiki. If your question is not answered here, you can contact one of our Staff Members or post it on the Talk Page.

How do I create a new page?

You can follow the instructions on the Wiki Tutorial, using the Create a Page button under the "Wiki Functions" subheading on the side navigation bar.

How do I edit a page?

You can click the "Edit" button at the top of every page.

Who can edit/create pages? Why can't I edit a page?

Any registered user on the EpicDuel Wiki can edit and create pages, excluding members that have been blocked due to one or more violations of the rules. If you are not blocked from editing and you cannot edit a page, it is likely because the page is protected so that only EpicDuel Wiki Staff can edit it.

Why was my page deleted or my edit reverted?

Your edit may have been reverted for various reasons, but is likely due to a violation of the rules. For more details on your page deletion/edit reversion and to appeal a deletion/reversion, contact a wiki staff member.

Who are the EpicDuel Wiki Staff Members?

A list of current staff members of the Wiki can be found here. Remember that no member of the wiki team will never ask for your account details, and should not be contacted for EpicDuel account issues.

Are there any rules of the wiki?

The current wiki rules can be found here.

I can't find ________!

You can use the search box located at the top right corner of the page to look for pages.

Can I change my name on the wiki?

No, there is currently no way for you to change your name on the wiki. If you would like a new name, you must create a new account.

Can I transfer edits from one account to another?

No, edits are tied to the account they originated from and can not be transferred to another account. Your edit count has no meaning beyond being a numerical value, so there is no need to transfer edits.

Why was I blocked from editing?

You were blocked because you likely violated one or more wiki rules. To appeal a block, you must contact a wiki staff member.

Can the Wiki be found on social media websites?

Yes, we have a Twitter (@EpicDuelWiki), YouTube (EpicDuelWiki) and Google+ (EpicDuel Wiki). We do not have a Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.. Please remember that no member of the wiki team will never ask for your account details, and should not be contacted for EpicDuel account issues.

How do I get the Lore Master Achievement and/or Rabble's Attack Tome?

The Lore Master achievement and Rabble's Attack Tome are individually awarded to players that contribute positively towards the development of EpicDuel. One way you can do so is by helping maintain the wiki to keep it accurate and up to date.

Recipients of those items are chosen by the EpicDuel Wiki Bureaucrats. In order to earn the achievement and/or sidearm, you must show your dedication and commitment to the wiki by contributing content page edits that are constructive and of high quality. Please note that faction, user and talk pages do not count as content page edits.

Please do not ask when you will receive the Lore Master achievement or Rabble's Attack Tome sidearm or for an update on your current progress towards it. There is no set number of edits that are required for you to obtain these rewards as different types of edits will be regarded differently. It is highly recommended that you contribute edits of varying difficulties so that we know you are not just doing the easy tasks. Image uploads can be a good place to start out, but they are not regarded as constructive edits, thus if you solely upload high quality images it will require significantly more edits than if you were to create/edit pages.

The EpicDuel Wiki Staff are constantly watching everyone's contributions to the wiki, so you do not need to remind us of your contributions. If you feel like you have contributed a sufficient amount of constructive edits and have not yet been approached by an EpicDuel Wiki Bureaucrat, then you have not contributed enough constructive edits for us and should continue to do so.

How do I get promoted to a Wiki Administrator?

This page will tell you all you need to know. Do not ask if you can become a wiki administrator.

What do the red and green numbers mean on the Recent Changes page?

These numbers are only used to represent the net change in the file size of the page (in bytes). A green number shows an increase in the file size of the page and a red number shows a decrease in the file size of the page. They do not mean anything other than that, so users should not be paying attention to it.
