In my time on the wiki, I have come across a number of broken hyperlinks. Usually these happen when someone links to a page which does not exist, and can, in fact, be a good way to tell what new pages are needed. However, there are also a good deal of broken links that lead to pages which already exist.
This is because, crucially, Wikia hyperlinks are case-sensitive.
For example, the link fire ant gaster leads nowhere, while Fire Ant Gaster will bring you to the page on the food item acquired from Fire Ant corpses.
For those who wish to link correctly but keep the links lowercase, there are options.
Visual Editor: Highlight your lowercase text, then click the Link button. This should open a small window with your lowercase text in it. Capitali…Read more >
"In-game description of what the item is in italic second button from the left to right"
Explain what the item is here in detail in bold, to do this click the first button from the left to right. Not what you think you know, what others have seen and you have seen and saw multiple times.
- Make sure the first heading is below the image you want to post to make it clear and can be easily looked at
- Use "insert Bullet list" from the 4th button from the left to right.
- (Will add more later)
- Can use bullets but up to the person making the page
- Unnecessary needed to know information. Things like what things do outside of the game, compared to things in the real world etc.

As the title says the poll has been up for two weeks and decisions have been made, and Yes, I'm writing this blog only so I can make the announcement about it.
The image is the best quality I can produce for 300kb limit (which actually have worse quality than the old map since it has more details), probably so that we won't waste time and data trying to load the background. (But if someone can make better quality image, please do tell, that would be very helpful)Read more >
Located in the objectblueprint.xml
I found three location referenced
First one is "Gijon Spring", second is "Eyn Rogel", lastly is "Otar ring Garden"
The data in game file called "Otar Ring Garden" (theoritically) referencing to garden of geth. The data includes an unimplemented placeholder creature "Pollwog", Three vegetable not native to Qud, and Three fungus also not native to Qud. And lastly a teleporter pad.
I don't want to make assumption and write it straight away into a page, so I just leave it here in a blog. I hope someone has a good idea what it is.Read more >
I'm Spirit, or Nature (call me whichever you prefer). I made it in as a new Admin for Caves of Qud wiki, and now to the point...
As I said, a week ago. I have plan to replace the background with the new image, which are the updated tileset map. Image show below:
My Reason? I think the wiki should represent what the game currently looks like.
And just to let you know, like the old background, it would look blurrier because of the wiki would limit the image size to below 300kb.
I will put up a voting poll in the front page tomorrow, the poll will be safely located right below the front navigation. The vote will be about opinion of the visitor of the wiki regarding the changes I plan to make to the background. The voting will stay up for a coupl…Read more >
The guys at community central, says I should make this post to tell what I'm trying to do here.
Basically I'm trying to
usurpreplace the inactive admin. Mostly because I need to actually be able delete some pages specifically some radiant item/quest and possibly to replace the background with the new version of the map.
Thats all the moderation plan that I have for in this wikiRead more >
Caves of Qud has really interesting lore, and it's conveyed beautifully through the literature you can find in-game. Up until now, the Books category has relayed the full texts of the books through screenshots. This has a few disadvantages. The biggest is that this makes searching the texts impossible, both through the wiki's search feature and the browser's find feature. There's also some accessibility issues (can't use screen readers, can't change the font, etc).
I've taken it upon myself to transcribe all of the named books already on the wiki from the screencaps, in the short term. It's come to my attention that the Corpus Choliys is outdated (since the addition of fungal infections), so long-term plans include verifying each of the tex…Read more >
So I've been thinking of making some big changes to the whole monsters category ever since the implemention of factions. Which is to basically stop categorizing enemies and characters into those bug/horror/humanoid thigns and instead into their own respective factions. Just to make it more clear for people who are seeking to find out what factions some creatures are part of, which isn't always easy to tell.
Benefits from this would be of course help people plan their faction allegience if they have some difficulty certain type of enemies, like twinning lamprey. Of course we will need to add the base demeanor of some monsters too such as the rhinox.
This will probably be one of the bigger projects as there is already a lot of different …Read more >
So this time I changed the outlook pretty radically from what it was before.
I took a new background photo by taking off the scanlines and green tint to increase the quality just a little bit and then made the image bit wider so that the division line wouldn't be there anymore to ruin the increased transparency.
Other things I did is put the graphic wordmark which I pretty much took from the steam store page as it was the only one that would really fit, but also the reason I decided to change the background colours to match up with it a lot better. Overall, I am happy with this change.
Now the last thing I changed was the favicon which I took from the CoQ game exe image. I tried ray cat first, but it just didn't fit very well and I feel like …Read more >
So, I changed the outlook of the CoQ-wiki quite a bit. It is still not as pleasing as I would personally want it to be, but it is a lot better than it was previously in my opinion. The background picture isn't super good, it is really limited by the highest allowed file size (300kb).
I tried to keep the feel of the game, but it is definitely harder than it looks. Right now I took one of the colours of the background used in Qud and added here, though it looks a lot different because there is no way to add those horizontal line thingies, which change the colour up a bit. I could have gone with all black, but then it would have looked a bit odd. I suppose I could have removed the filter in the game and then taken the ASCII picture of the Qud …Read more >
Because, really, i'm not. Really not, at times. I've been thinging about making a category exclusivly for articles and categories that needs descriptions, called something nonsencical like INOC (In Need Of Descrption) or something. But, that's pretty pointless if there isn't someone out there to remove that category from them.
Also, is there anyone out there? I'ts been some time since i've seen any new content added by someone else. Does it mean there is no one there, or that no one has anything to contribute?Read more >
