You are doing it wrong. Check out mob section the picture is blured out. It should be without blur and pixeled...

I've added my mod description at http://minetestwiki.co.cc/index.php?title=Mods

Modders, please add your mods in the same way.

Maybe mods should each have there own page that way you could images, mod descriptions and other helpful stuff for each mod (if that makes sense).

So then the page where you've added your mod would just become a list maybe grouped by developer as a lot of mod developers have more than one mod or even better grouped by category...but then that would mean coming up with categories that everyone can agree on.

They already have own pages in 'mods' category. This page is for quick searching a mod and looking to its requirements and download link.

That makes it the 3rd page with Nature described on it. Consider creating a table list the mods and including a link to the full detail page. Table could include a column for a screenshot thumbnail as well. This approach makes it better for a consolidated easy to read Mod page and then allows more descriptive pages for the mod itself.

Between the other two pages, any different info should be copied to the master page and #REDIRECT[[masterpage]] should be used to point to the master from the other.

Example:

Copy Nature info to Nature Mod and leave #REDIRECT[[Nature Mod]] should replace any test on the Nature page.

Also, Mod pages should have [[Category:Mods]] included in the page text (a true template could fix this issue, but people would have to use the template) so that they show up in the Mods Category listing.

I'm happy to help if there are any questions on how to do things with MediaWiki, I use it extensively at home and at work.

Table is a bit difficult to create for me :) Anyway, mediawiki supportse table of contents with the quick links to the mods in the beginning of the article.

Between the other two pages, any different info should be copied to the master page and #REDIRECT[[masterpage]] should be used to point to the master from the other.

What pages are your speaking about? I have 1 page for nature mod pack and 1 for nature mod. And some text about the mod in mods page.

I apologize, I misread the pack page until you pointed that out (late night last night watching the Superbowl).

__TOC__ over time gets lengthy and messy, plus it depends on people putting the entries in the right order if you are looking to achieve alphabetical, easily read content listings, whereas a table can be sorted. For example a version column or last updated column would make it easy to show which mods are stale. I'll do a table later and put it in place. If no one likes it, it can be rolled back.

I didn't see that until now. I linked a French page off of the Mods table so when the plugin is installed I'll remove the column.

Did some format changes, cleaned up some long pages and left notes in the comments. Looks like some things were pasted in from other sources leading to formatting issues.

No problem. My main issue is that I get OCD about it and could spend all night editing, so I'm trying not to. If anyone has questions on how to do something, I'm happy to show or figure it out within the Wiki framework.

What specifically? I wouldn't personally copy it outright, but clicking on View Source shows how they set it up.

Is the changelog page needed on the wiki? currently there is no actual changelog to go off when adding to that page well other than github, This page could be quite useful I guess but will require a lot of work to keep it up to date and may just be more effort than its actually worth?

Also what is the "NOT DONE" labels for? ^_^

I've never done this, but it looks like the github commit rss feed could be imported into MediaWiki via the FeedImport extension.

Haha I know that lol, what I meant was some of the pages that have "NOT DONE" under them will be pages that are continuously edited (like texture packs etc) haha

You'd have to install the extension for it to be possible.
