Current projects[edit]

Help out on current projects! Currently, the community is working on:

  • Change the layout of the powerup pages: several of the game sections have "Nothing to note.", sometimes because the info for that game is on the opening of the article. As such, all game sections should be removed, any game-specific info should be on the opening, and the cheat code and technical data bits should be in a "Technical data" section, divided into game sections (unless the powerup is only present in a single game).
  • Add important pickup locations for every level.
  • Changing all the powerup names to have starting capital letters on each word. Back then, I figured we should stylize powerup words with all lowercase letters. I must've been insane; Title Case is the best style for powerup names.
  • Improving the driver articles.
    • A lot of normal info is on the Trivia section, and the body of the article itself is blank most of the time. We need physical descriptions of the vehicle, some attributes of the driver, move some stuff away from the Trivia section, etc.
    • Add concept art images.
  • Italicizing game names. The names of works (like games) should be in italics.
  • Fix typos about the Game Boy Color port. In several articles some categories, we have "Gameboy Color" as the console's name, as opposed to "Game Boy Color", the correct name. (search)
  • Creating the missing location, level, and mission articles.
  • Making the driver pages use the driver templates ({{C1Driver}}ED, {{C2Driver}}ED, etc.)
  • Making articles about the tools used to customize the games.
  • Categorizing puns.
  • Stylizing message boxes, to look more like message boxes (or things that resemble message boxes) found in the games.
  • Adding a "gender" attribute in driver infoboxes, and add that info on each article accordingly. A small male/female/question mark symbol, with a tooltip somewhere would be nice, instead of a new line on the infobox.
    • Manually categorize the missing drivers.
  • Create a powerup navbox.
