Back to template

SplitEdit

Perhaps we should have 2 templates, one for articles, one for sections. They could have differing wording to make it clear that the section version applies narrowly. --Beep2 12:43, 1 January 2007 (EST)

I concur.--Voidvector 23:30, 1 January 2007 (EST)
Implemented without creating another template. {{Removedfromgame|<reason>|<article or section>}}, otherwise it uses the previous wording. --Pcj 23:27, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

For simplicity and smaller template there's {{rfg-section}}. User:Gourra/Sig2 23:21, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Patch Edit

For recordkeeping purposes, could we have a patch field for this template?

For example, perhaps {{removedfromgame|patch=2.3.0}} could return a statement that says:

The active wiki link to the patch's article, of course, being somewhat important :) I'd do this myself, but I'm not entirely sure I know how ^_^ Hekirou 17:58, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Reason Edit

There appears to be no reference to {{{1|}}} in the template code, which I gather to be the "reason" arguments. Certainly, when I tried to provide a a reason, it didn't change the template output in the slightest. I'm going to try to fix this, but I'm completely new at template editing, so apologies in advance if I fuck up. Happily, there's always the magical revert command.

Holy crap, it worked! The only problem I have now is... is that the best place to put the reason output? But if nothing else, at least it's back. I'll let other people decide if they like where I put it, I'm too happy that it worked to care where you put it :D

One more problem though. What if you just want to say {{removedfromgame|<article>}} without a reason? Templates are complicated things, aren't they -_- Hekirou 18:07, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

You'd add an extra | → {{removedfromgame|<>|<article>}}. User:Coobra/Sig3 22:24, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

ExpansionEdit

With more and more things being removed from the game, perhaps it's time to expand this template just a little more, along with the categories.

{{removedfromgame|<reason>|<article or section>|<Quest, NPC, Mob, Item, Object>}}

Though I guess object and item could just share. User:Coobra/Sig3 22:24, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Categories Edit

Since we use it with patch-related articles, why not make categories for each patch? Would be interesting to see all articles that were removed in patch 3.1.0. The current category is just a mess.--Iggey (talk) 15:53, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Done, kindly supported by User:Coobra.--Iggey (talk) 23:08, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Quests Edit

Looking for clarification: Is a quest Removedfromgame when...

  • only when the quest is completely eradicated (ie actively removed from quest logs)?
  • only when the quest giver is either removed, or no longer offers the quest?
  • or also: when the quest can no longer be completed? (Quest ender removed and/or quest objectives no longer dropped.)

Some for-instances:

I would have no problem with the "no longer offered" definition of "removed". Perhaps "Obsolete" or "Legacy" would be a good descriptor for quests such as Concerted Efforts and Quest:One Commendation Signet, though. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:19, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

I've always used it in the 2nd and 3rd cases myself (as well as the obvious first). Purple Lotus already has the notice up top that the event is permanently done and so I think that places it in a subcat of rmfromgame (or, it should...). I think I'd tag Concerted Efforts with it, and then fix the section on 'Patches'. --Sky (t · c) 20:46, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
