Habitica Wiki

 

On August 8, 2023, Habitica removed the Tavern and all Guilds, so any guild links in this page should be ignored.
Simultaneously, tiers will no longer be awarded for Socialites, Comrades, Artisans, or Scribes.
The status of Storytellers and Ambassadors is currently unclear.
Only Blacksmiths, Linguists, and Challengers are definitely staying.

 

This is a featured article!
This page was featured as part of the Wiki Wednesday series. Once a month, Habitica staff highlight a helpful post from the Wiki with tips about productivity, wellness, and optimizing your use of Habitica!


Habitica is an open-source project that can help you achieve goals. Everyday people with everyday lives devote their time and energy to creating and maintaining everything you see here on this wiki and at Habitica. Whether you want to earn the contributor rewards and titles or you just like the open-source model, we welcome you to contribute to the project. Please jump in where you feel comfortable contributing; there are a wide range of roles available. Contributors are really appreciated.

First-Party Coders (Web & Mobile)[]

Blacksmith contributions are desperately needed! For details about contributing code for the website, see Guidance for Blacksmiths.

Fletchers are like Blacksmiths for the mobile app. Your contributions are needed and appreciated! For more info on how to contribute, check out Guidance for Fletchers: Android or Guidance for Fletchers: iOS.

Translators[]

Main article: Guidance for Linguists

Both the game itself and this wiki can benefit from translation help from people who are native speakers or very fluent in the language being translated to. See the main article for more details on how to get involved.

Writers[]

Things we need help with:

  • Scribes: Make a Fandom Wikia account and help the community by writing and contributing to articles here on the wiki. While editing is helpful, it is no longer a contribution tier, see below.
  • Challengers: Create challenges for Habiticans to jump start their productivity. Tiers in this title are quite rare and are awarded for consistently creating many valuable challenges that benefit the Habitica community.


Due to the removal of taverns and guilds, the current status of these two paths is unclear.

  • Storytellers: Become a Storyteller and submit quest text to the Habitica Quests Trello Board.
  • Ambassadors: Very rarely, a user's post will go viral, causing a spike in traffic, and on those occasions, the admins may decide to award a contributor tier as a thank-you. If you believe that your post resulted in a significant and lasting growth for our userbase (e.g. people made accounts and stuck around for a while), please email us at admin@habitica.com with your User ID and the URL of your post and the admins will check the analytics. Blogs and social media accounts with more prestige, traffic, followers, comments, and visibility are more likely to receive a tier. Note that an example of the kind of traffic we're referring to would be that resulting from this Lifehacker post.

Deprecated contributor types[]

While these contributor types are no longer useful, it is still possible to check out their guidance pages for historical reference.

Designers[]

In the past, volunteer Designers have assisted with the appearance of the website and their efforts were very much appreciated. Habitica's current website was designed by Habitica's staff and they are the only people who do design work now.

Music and Sound Effects Artists[]

Currently, new submissions are not being accepted at this time.

Statisticians[]

Statisticians used to provide in-depth analysis of Habitica's data. However, there isn't currently a need for statistical analysis and so this contribution type is not in use at this time.

Third-Party Coders (Scripts, Styles, & Other Tools)[]

While it is still possible to build third-party tools using the Habitica API, the Comrades path has ceased to exist. Find out more on the Guidance for Comrades page.

Pixel Artists[]

Unfortunately, Habitica is no longer needing Pixel Artists. Find out more on the Habitica Pixel Art Trello Board.

Scribes[]

While helping improve the wiki is still useful and possible, it is no longer a contribution tier. For more information, check out the Guidance for Scribes.

Socialites[]

Providing assistance to newcoming and confused users is always beneficial. However, this is no longer a contribution tier path.

Requesting Features/Submitting Ideas[]

If you have an idea for improving Habitica:

  • Use the Habitica User Feedback and Suggestions Google Form to request a feature. It's available from the website at Help > Request a Feature and on the mobile apps through the menu's "Help & FAQ" option.
  • Report bugs with Habitica's website by going to Help > Report a Bug.
  • Report bugs with the mobile apps through the app's menu at About > Report a Bug.

Feature requests and bug reports are very much appreciated but do not count towards Contributor Rewards, so you won't get a tier or gear.

For More Info About the Project[]

Requesting a Contributor Tier[]

Each category of contribution on Habitica has a specific process for requesting and awarding a Contributor Tier. A summary can be found on the Contributor Rewards page but for full details about how specific tiers are judged and how you can apply for them, see the "Contributor Tier Process" section in the appropriate Guidance pages.
