2013

November 13, 2013

Currently revamping the main page, in order to provide more useful links and information for users, particularly when they first reach the Wiki.

Progress is being made on updating the Plushie item images, however with over 1,000 accessories and their images to update it is an ongoing project which Lammy is working on in her spare time.


November 16, 2013

We will be working to get Divines updated with their new shading as quickly as we can and appreciate everyone's patience as this huge task is undertaken.


November 19, 2013

All wallpaper images have been updated for Divines. Work is continuing to update both Divine and Plushie item images, and Lammy is also beginning to replace images in gif and jpg formats with png. This is to allow people to more easily update things such as marking images, as they will no longer need to check what format the existing image is saved as and save the new image accordingly. It might not seem like much on the front end, but it helps a lot on the back-end!

And adding on that we are working on getting images up for the two new markings that were released as well.


November 21, 2013

The Glitched category has been separated into "Glitched Items" and "Glitched Markings". Notice something that doesn't display correctly, that isn't on the appropriate list? Shoot Lammy (722) a PM and let her know!

Work is continuing on Divine and Plushie image updates.


November 25, 2013

If you've been on Wajas, you know that Earth lineart has been updated. We will get around to updating all of our Earth images at some point, but for now, we are focussing on our ongoing efforts to finish Plushies and Divines in addition to our usual business of keeping up with new items, new markings, etc.. No doubt, this to do list will grow longer as Estuko continues making image changes around the site and so we do, as always, appreciate your patience and understanding as we scramble to catch up!


November 28, 2013

All wallpaper inventory images have been updated on the wiki!


November 30, 2013

Are you ready for Santa Apollo? We are! New item pages have been created, and will continue to be created as we know about items! These pages can be found here, and will be updated as items come out at this special time of year!


December 4, 2013

We will hold off on updating the marking images for Egyptians, until the design has been completely finalised.

Tempest marking updates have been done, to reflect the recent changes to the lineart style.


December 11, 2013

I know, for those in the US it's still the 10th, but it's the 11th for me (Lammy) xD I've just made a FB page for the wiki, as another way to keep up to date on things! You can find it here! I am hoping to use it for item spotlights, since I'm sure there are lots of items out there that many people haven't seen very much of! I'll also be throwing up quick updates such as when images are up for certain things.


December 20, 2013

It's my birthday! And I'm updating the wiki. I will be updating the images for recent SA items which have yet to be done, and I will be creating a page for the Festival of Frost. Please Note: for item images uploaded today I am going to skip the Normal breed images, due to their current half shaded/bearded appearance. Once the breed art updates I will upload those images. -Lammy #722 (signature and cave number added by Schwarz who believes Lammy should be drowned in presents)


December 31, 2013

Normal images are not to be uploaded until their shading is completed!!! I cannot stress this enough, as there is no point in taking the time to upload images now only to have them replaced in a few weeks when their shading is completed!

Now that the important stuff is out of the way, happy new year guys! I hope 2014 is a good one!


2014

January 2, 2014

Welcome to the new year! A new year means new features, and you might notice the featured accessory and wallpaper of the week up there on the top right. This will be updated every week, so keep an eye out! You might see something you haven't seen before!

I have also created a proboards account for the wiki, I'd love you all to check it out and register! You can find it here: http://www.thewajaswiki.proboards.com


January 30, 2014

News has been quiet on here, however lots of background work is being done to prepare for the Forest breed! Don't forget to follow the Facebook page and join the Proboards too, to keep up to date with the changes!


February 1, 2014

Merry merry February! And now to the important stuff: PLEASE DO NOT ADD MARKING IMAGES FOR THE FOREST WAJA YET! The image on the demo has no shading and so doing this right now will just mean that we have to redo them later after the breed is released with its final look and that means more work, which nobody wants. So sit, wait, bottle your enthusiasm, and be ready to pounce on getting the images up for that new waja! Also, if you haven't yet, check out the Wiki's Proboards, linked off to the left in the navigation menu. You can keep up with the changes, interact with other wikiers, and have a good time.Thanks again! ~Schwarz


March 09, 2014

Happy March, Wikiers! Not a lot of real news to be had, but I fancied I'd check in. We're still waiting for the release of the Forest waja and until then continue to request that you PLEASE DO NOT ADD MARKING IMAGES FOR THE FOREST WAJA YET! Caps abuse is bad, but I want to make sure that anyone even glancing through might notice that.  :) We're still not 100% sure if it's done yet and we don't want to start until it is because no one really wants this to be more work than necessary. So, what are we doing in the meantime? Price checks! For the love of Apollo, price checks! When you look at an item, please check its price. For more pricing information, look to your right at the To Do list. Thanks for your help! Hopefully we'll all be back here soon with the release of the new breed. ~Schwarz


March 29, 2014

And that night a Forest grew... The Forest is here! It is officially released and the shading for it is complete! MARKINGS AND MUTATIONS FOR THE FOREST CAN BE UPLOADED NOW! Whoo! For the time being, there's no need to focus on accessories, though, since those items (numbering about a thousand or more) are still being redrawn by the dedicated artists of Wajas. Anyway, merry Spring and happy Forests, everyone! ~Schwarz


April 22, 2014

As you probably know, the Easter Event has begun! And we've got the goods. It's also Earth Day! Happy Earth Day, everyone! While we eagerly await the appearance of the Earth Tokens in the Token Shop, we should also take a moment to contemplate everyone's favourite little blue and green marble and what we can do to help keep it those lovely colours. I'll also accept Googling in place of contemplation.  ;P ~Schwarz

May 27, 2014

It's been nearly a month since the last news update! Wow! But it's also been pretty quiet on the Wiki front. Or at least it was until the massive release of Forest-updated accessories! Whoo! And we (read:mostly Lammy) have been hard at work, going through all of the previously not-working accessories to get the forest images uploaded. As always, we appreciate your patience during our epic endeavours. ~Schwarz

July 8, 2014

Hello, Wiki! It's been a while! As breed art continues to be upgraded on wajas, we'll be continuing to update it here on the wiki, though redoing item images will wait until we confirmation that the updates are finished. During this time, you may notice that, for example, the picture of the African with Butterfly Wings still looks like the old one. If this happens, try refreshing with F5 like you would on Wajas. If we've updated the image, this will allow you to see the new version on your browser. Also, a reminder to everyone that the Wiki is a community run project, but is regularly maintained by a handful of players who are volunteering their time and working hard to update and improve it. We're people and sometimes we forget to edit a date or something silly. So, if you see something odd or incorrect, please feel free to send me a message about it on Wajas so that we can correct or clarify the information. Thanks, everyone! ~Schwarz (29193)


August 3, 2014

Hello, Wiki! It's August and as you all well know, the Forum Goblins Event is in full swing. We are working hard to get pages and images up for those items. We also saw a fundraising effort on Wajas in July and there is a page in the works for that, which ties into a smei-exciting (I'm excited) new feature on the Wiki: the Wajas Historical Events page. Okay, technically, it is a category, and sub-categorised in it are the years since Wajas started to now. So what is this? Well, firstly, it's a link off to the right under Resources. Secondly, since we have pages for events on Wajas such as the Forum Goblins and the 2014 Custom Sale, we realised that we should really have these things organised and linked together somewhere to make finding the information easier. This is still a work in progress and if you're an old player with helpful information about Wajas' past, I'm always open to PMs. In these year subcategories, we'll be tagging major events such as those listed above, seasonal Events (which will still have their own category, and big changes made to the site such as the release of a breed. We hope that this will make the history of Wajas more accessible to everyone. We're also working on a breeding experiment to determine the results of rainbow vs chrome markings and will have that up here and mentioned in the news as well.Finally, we appreciate your patience and understanding that the Wiki is regularly maintained by only a handful of players and so sometimes things don't get updated as quickly as we would like or are unclear. Please message me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you! ~Schwarz (29193)


September 28, 2014

September items have been added and updated. Lots of mutations have been updated, with potentially more to come! The Forum Goblins event is continuing, and we are expecting to see at least one more raffle in the near future. Keep checking in to both Wajas and the wiki!


October 26, 2014

Halloween is here! Images for the Halloween 2014 items are being added as they are obtained. Don't forget to knock on the OWF's door every hour, and remember that it is an hour after you last visited, not each clock hour. So if you visit her at 6:05am, you cannot trick or treat again until 7:05am.


December 2, 2014

Hello, Wiki! If you're in the US, you're probably sufficiently recovered from your Turkey coma, and just in time for Christmas 2014! We'll be keeping track of the gifts given out, as always. We also have the item list for the Halloween 2014 event, too, in case any of you missed that and want to know what items you should be trying to collect. The Historic Wajas Events category doesn't have a page for the new layout yet, but we hope to have that up soon. Appreciate what's done here? Want to lend a hand? Request an account and send me a message! The Wiki is regularly maintained by only a handful of users and we're always happy to have new faces join in! ~Schwarz (29193)

2015

January 3, 2015

Happy New Year, Wiki! It is now 2015, which will hopefully be as shiny and wonderful as we could all ever hope and then some! The holidays are over for most of us or soon will be and then it'll be back to work here on the Wiki. As you're probably aware, Lammy (722) has taken a step back from Wajas to pursue some real life and so that means a step back from the Wiki, too. If you've ever entertained the notion of joining up, feel free to send me a PM with any questions or just follow the instructions for an account at the top of this page. This is a community project which is managed and created by users like you and we're happy to have all the help we can get. ~Schwarz (29193)


February 14, 2015

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Whether you're single or you've got a special someone, the Wiki loves you! Not a lot of real Wiki news to be had, but it's been over a month, so it seemed like we should make some contact. Inaccurate pricing has been a source of some upset/confusion as of late, so let's talk about that. Our beloved Wiki is regularly maintained by only a handful of people, by which I mean about ten. We certainly get (appreciated) help from sporadic contributors, but with 2300 items it is impossible for people with real lives to manually keep every price up to date, despite our valiant efforts. Below our listed price, though, are links to view the item in the search. Use these!  :) Item prices are prone to fluctuations and you should always double check the search before pricing your stuff. From Wiki, with love. ~Schwarz (29193)

April 13, 2015

Hi guys,

This is a notice to let everybody know that the wiki desperately needs active, reliable people to assist with site updates. It is getting to the point where I am having to step in again to help Schwarz out, despite having done a handover and taking a hiatus from the Wiki. If you want to help out, and you can follow the rules, apply for an account today.

But let me make this abundantly clear. You are not going to be useful to us if you only do one edit every three months. You are not going to be useful to us if you don't follow the templates and protocols in place for edits. If you cannot devote time to the wiki, then please don't apply. Schwarz and I regularly dedicate hours of our time to keeping this wiki updated, and we don't have the bandwidth to do all that needs to be done. When requesting an account you need to provide the following information:

  • Your Wajas ID
  • How much time you can devote to the wiki
  • What tasks you can complete
  • Any previous wiki experience

Applications may be rejected if we determine that you may not be able to significantly contribute to updating the wiki, or if we feel that you may not have enough knowledge of Wajas.

-Lammy

Hi everyone,

Please take note: The correct URL to access the wiki is http://www.wajaswiki.com. Please do not use the wajas.pokeds.com URL, as we will no longer be updating pages on that domain.

If you are applying for a new account on the wiki, please ensure the URL of the page you are filling out the account details for is wajaswiki.com.

Moving forward, all changes are to be made solely on the wajaswiki.com domain.

Thanks, Lammy

Happy Hallowe'en, everyone! Okay, well very nearly, but that hasn't stopped Wajas! The Halloween 2015 event is in full swing! We're working hard here at the wiki to get pages, info, and images up for each and every one of the brilliant new items we'll be seeing during the event and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we work. Speaking of which, this is a great time to do some contributing if you're a wiki member, even if you don't have the time to contribute regularly. It's the community that keeps this community project running, after all!  :) Anyway, have a Happy (proper) Hallowe'en! ~Schwarz 29193

2016

March 29, 2016

Hello, Wiki! It's been quite a while since we've updated the news, but we haven't been idle, so here's a quick rundown! First off, you've got trophies? So do we! Check out the new Achievements page to set your goals. Next up, the Mining Cave Items page is going to get a revamp to reflect which actual cave items are in. We're still collecting data for this, but it's coming! Easter 2016 is up and running and we're working to keep up with it here. Happy egg hunting! ~Schwarz 29193

October 27, 2016

Happy Hallowe'en! The event has begun on Wajas proper and we've got the Halloween 2016 page up here! We'll be updating the item pages as much and quick as we can, so check it out to see what cool new things are available. Happy Trick or Treating! ~Schwarz 29193

2017

February 22, 2017

Hello in this new year, Wiki! We're still working hard around here and one thing we've gotten done is the Mining Cave Items page. As you know, the Mining Cave is now a few caves and so the listing of the items has been altered to reflect which cave these items may be found in. We're still working to sort some of them (those are in the Unknown section), but we'll get there! Also, a big thank you to everyone who contributes to the Wajas Wiki! This place wouldn't be possible without players who generously donate their time and knowledge for the benefit of everyone. Thank you all so much! ~Schwarz 29193

April 25, 2017

Hey, guys! I'm updating the news to let you know that the wiki is having problems creating accounts in the normal way. I think our wiki version needs updated and I've contacted our originator, Shadowfiles about it. So, until we get this pesky issue resolved, new accounts must be manually created and requesting one here will cause issues where an account with your requested name can't be made. If you're looking to join us, send me a PM and don't touch anything here. Also, I've bumped Tailz up to admin status! This will allow a divide and conquer strategy as she can now do all the things I can, which should help the wiki to run a bit more smoothly. Thanks for your help and support, everyone! ~Schwarz, 29193

October 21, 2017

Hello! First wiki news post yeah! :) Over the past few months I've been diligently working on old articles and updating things with all the new features coming out, and adding images to help further explain the steps to make them a little more newbie friendly! Speaking of Newbies, I'd like to point out I've compressed the "Mega FAQ" from wajas onto it's own page here with updated steps and images located on the Newbie Mega Guide page! I'm always looking for ways to improve it if you have any ideas of topics I may have missed or suggestions of things to add. Synestra(#13965) has been working hard to try to update all the Markings by Breed pages since a lot of them are very out of date with old line arts (Thanks to Impreza for pointing that out to me!). If you have ANY suggestions of anything to add to the wiki, or if you come across something that is highly out of date, please do not hesitate to contact me on wajas. :) I take the Wiki very seriously and would love to keep it a resource that everyone can check with accurate information! I've also added a new more "modern" banner at the bottom to show your support for the wiki and give yourself a quick link to the wiki from your profile. I want to thank everyone for their support for the wiki, and I can't wait to begin working on the Halloween 2017 stuff when it releases! :) Oh, and don't forget we have a page dedicated to explaining the Lights On & Off if you would like the details for that unofficial site game! ~Tailz 1231
