Achievements

From Gamepedia Help Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Achievements are displayed on the profile page. Mega achievements appear on all wikis while regular achievements appear on the wiki where they were earned.

This is a page with detailed information about the achievements extension that was deployed to Gamepedia in September 2015 and updated in April 2017.

What's new in the April 2017 update[edit | edit source]

The most recent major update to the Achievements system was primarily a re-writing of the service that manages achievements on Gamepedia. While there aren't very many explicitly "new" features, many systems have been fixed, improved, or made to work the way they were intended. Casual editors will likely not notice much of a difference, while more advanced editors who are engaging with the achievement system may notice some tweaks to the old system.

New features & improvements[edit | edit source]

  • Preferences toggle for pop-up notifications
  • Achievements with global triggers now earned once globally (ex: "An Eye For Style" - Edit your social profile for the first time)

Bug fixes[edit | edit source]

  • "Logged in Visits" Streak Achievements fixed
  • Mega Achievements Management System fixed
  • Various changes to awarding and displaying of achievements

General overview[edit | edit source]

A newly-earned achievement.

Achievements is a feature on Gamepedia designed to help provide a sense of reward and recognition for Gamepedia users who edit and interact on our wikis. Each wiki has a set of about 100 basic achievements. Some are for wiki-specific, or "local", things like making edits, uploading images, and patrolling pages, while others are for Gamepedia-wide, or "global" things like creating a user profile, adding friends, or earning certain amounts of Wikipoints. Local wiki administrators also have the ability to create new achievements (or edit default ones) to customize the achievements for that specific wiki.

When you earn an achievement, it will pop up briefly. It is possible for multiple achievements to appear simultaneously. These notifications can be toggled in the "Notifications" section of your personal preferences.

In addition to local achievements, which are earned and displayed only on a specific wiki, there are also "Global" and "Mega" Achievements. Both of these types of Achievements are displayed on all Gamepedia wikis regardless of where they were earned. "Mega" achievements are special Gamepedia "feats of strength" and are displayed separately from the usual achievements.

Achievement pages[edit | edit source]

The administrative overview of Achievements can be found here. However, there are several Special pages related to Achievements:

List of base achievements[edit | edit source]

This is a list of all of the basic achievements that each wiki has by default with the deploy of the achievements extension. This list does not include "secret" achievements, which are only visible to admins or to users who have earned them. All of these achievements are awarded automatically once the specified milestone is reached.

This list also will not reflect any changes that may have been made by local wiki admins.

Mega Achievements[edit | edit source]

Mega Achievements are designed to allow top editors of each wiki to display their work across other wikis on Gamepedia. The default Mega Achievement for each wiki is standardized and includes the achievements listed in the table below, as well as 3 "secret" achievements (which are guaranteed to be earned through the completion of those listed).

Mega Achievement names, requirements and icons can be changed by Gamepedia staff at the request of the local admin team. Please e-mail [email protected] if you are an admin who would like to change the Mega Achievement for your wiki. Any icons must be square and 120px in size.
