2.4 icons

Could you upload to WoWWiki icons for Blade of Life's Inevitability, Wand of Cleansing Light and Wand of the Demonsoul? It looks like there are many 2.4 icons missing here...-- Vysogota T / C

I'm afraid I don't have the WoW client installed at the moment. Maybe you should ask someone else, hehe. Adys 11:36, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Under Construction

I'm told that the recent destruction of the "construction" tag is at your bidding. (here) So, what SHOULD I use to indicate that I'm still working on a page? --Eirik Ratcatcher 18:45, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Previews? Userspace sandboxes? Adys 07:20, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
Previews are only useful if I'm working on it in one session. Sandboxes are useful if it is a new page being constructed. Construction was useful if the page was nearly complete and was useful to users as-is. --Eirik Ratcatcher 19:09, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
If the page is useful to users as-is, it doesn't need any tag. Adys 23:14, 13 March 2008 (UTC)


Apology for Earlier

Today has not been going at all well for me, but it's no excuse for being rude, and for that I apologize - the problem appears to be fixed now. Though if it happens again, I have a stick you can take to the machinery...*grin* Sincerely, Joshmaul 06:36, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

No probs, happy it's fixed now :) Adys 14:02, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

hi, can you please post the reason about the new sorting of Mirrors?? --Philson 15:24, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

No, read the talk page, it's right there.. Adys 07:04, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

i can`t find the reason!?! --Philson 09:47, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

"A valid point was raised recently is the abuse of numerical first-letter (intended or not, 0daypatch comes to mind)."
"As I said on IRC, aaawowpatch.com would get removed. Really obvious abuse will get you nowhere."

Guild page deletion

I wanted to update my guild's page and hadn't realized that it had been deleted last year (2007-06-17T21:50:12), I'm guessing from some policy violation. I had to page set to be watched but I'm thinking deletes don't generate watch notifications. (Bug in MediaWiki?)

Anyway, the last notification I got was in February 2007 for Bleeding_Hollow:MatureAsskickers. It looks like since then the new naming convention adds "Guild:" to the front and moves the realm to the end. If you can restore the content, I can take care of bringing it into compliance.

Is there a way to get notified of page deletes and renames that's different from edit notifications so I'll get notification of this in the future?

-- ScratchMonkey 00:22, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

There's no way to get notified of this. I restored the guild at Guild:MatureAssKickers_(Bleeding_Hollow_US) Adys 15:03, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I'll put in an RFE on the MediaWiki list. (My team runs the same wiki on our own host and I run it internally at my company.) ScratchMonkey 19:36, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Graphic novel template

Hi, I am not keen on templates so I want to ask if you can change the "garphic novel" template so that it adds a, say, "graphic novel" category to images with this template. This is done to the "RPG" template. It can be made even better to recognise if it's used on an image or in an article like the "TCG" template. Unfortunately, I cannot do this myself so if you have time, please.Dakovski (talk) 13:43, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I made the template add categories but the images does not seem to appear to the new "category:Graphic novel images".Dakovski (talk) 12:49, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

contacting an admin

Hello. I'm not sure if I'm going about this the right way. There's a mild problem of not-quite-vandalism that I'd like to discuss with an admin, but it doesn't seem to be worth making a scene about on one of the village pump pages. Is there an email address or something similar for wowwiki admins? Farmbuyer@Kilrogg (talk) 21:23, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

IRC is the best solution Adys 06:32, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Farmbuyer@Kilrogg (talk) 22:57, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

System Date

Hi, Adys... I just posted a change a few minutes ago and the history shows it was made 18 December 2007. maybe something needs adjustment? ~/o —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Exeglow (talk · contr).

The edit before yours was made on that date. It's possible you ran into a cache issue, but you shouldn't have. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:47, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Fist Weapon and associated pages

Could you help me in the cleanup in the plethora of Fist Weapon pages? Currently there are:

  • Fist: the page that used to have the actual info on Fist Weapons (now a redirect)
  • Fist weapon (small "w"): the current page with the actual info
  • Fist Weapon (big "W"): the desired page where all the info should end up (now a redirect)
  • Fist Weapons (big "W", plural): a redirecting page

The Fist page was probably originally set up as the central page for information about Fist Weapons. Because the most used expression is "Fist weapon" this lead to the three different redirecting pages. Because of this, and because, almost every page pointing Fist used the phrase "Fist weapon", I moved Fist to Fist weapon with success. The existing Fist weapon was a redirection page with fortunately only had one edit in the history, so no trouble there. While adjusting the pages which pointed to Fist I found the other variants also existed. Also, the in-game name used by Blizzard (e.g. in the tooltips) is "Fist Weapon", with a capital "W". So that page should be the main page. Sadly, when attempting to move Fist weapon to Fist Weapon, the system refused the change.

My request to you is:

  • To force a move of Fist weapon to Fist Weapon.
  • To delete "Fist weapon" and "Fist Weapons". If [[Fist weapon]] or [[Fist Weapons]] is used somewhere, the Wiki system will automatically put up the Fist Weapon page.

I'll be happy to update any pages with links to either of the old pages and make them point to Fist Weapon.

--Hops Splurt (talk) 20:34, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Why? The policy is sentence casing for titles, "Fist weapon" is what should be used. Adys 07:06, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
A sensible policy for a sensible wiki :-). That would also save a lot of trouble. All that remains is the deletion of the now superfluous Fist Weapon and Fist Weapons redirecting pages. Much obliged if you could accomplish that. --Hops Splurt (talk) 10:12, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
There really isn't any need to delete those, they're plural and casing redirects (altho I believe the casing ones should be achieved in Mediawiki, it's a long-standing issue still). Redirects don't hurt anyone, and deleting them breaks links. Just leave them as is :p Adys 04:44, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

WDBC

Hi I'm interested in the parse. How do you use it? Must I install Python? And what then? Is there an EXE-file program or tell me how it works =P --SFSig-2009 18:43, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

You will need Python knowledge and a bit of knowledge on how WoW stores data, otherwise the lib will be no use to you. Adys 18:51, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Just installed Python 3.0, I can open the files but when I click Run Module it says syntax error. I thought there would be a script I could use to convert my Spell.dbc? I'm lost and would like some help, mate. --SFSig-2009 18:54, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
It runs only on Python 2.x. I haven't released any conversion plugin, though they'd all be very easy to write. As I said, it's a library, not an application; if you don't have sufficient Python knowledge, it'll be no use to you. Adys 19:19, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi again! I yesterday say all night learning Python; it's actually a very fun language and I understand a lot more now than before, so sorry if I was a bit mean to you by being so inquisitive. But I've run into an error whenever I'm using SpellStringFormatter.format(e, row). It always gives me an error saying that data type dpessn't have have attribute "parent". What shall I do? I tried different arguments, using data types like DBFile, list, int, dict etc none of them has parent it says (one of them I think has .row, but not .row.parent). Thank you so much Adys! --SFSig-2009 11:49, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
The row must be a DBRow instance. You load your environment as e = Environment(...), access the spell file with e["spell"], and access the row with e["spell"][12345] or whichever ID you want; this returns the DBRow. Adys 01:44, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
The function worked but it didn't modify the spell at all. It just printed it as if I'd just call its row. This is what I did:
  • from environment import Environment
  • e = Environment("C:/Documents and Settings/UsrName/Desktop/wdbc/", ["Spell.dbc", "SpellDuration.dbc", "SpellRadius.dbc", "SpellRange.dbc"], 9183)
  • from spellstrings import SpellStringsFormatter
  • N = e["spell"][50000]
  • s = SpellStringsFormatter(N)
  • SpellStringFormatter.format(s, N)

Do you remember the rules concerning Rolandius?

Please see User_talk:Rolandius/Archive2#Welcome_back. and User:Rolandius/Mentor#The_rules_reiterated. If you don't like them, complain to Sky or Kirkburn. I'm giving you a pass on the recent Rolandius ban, because I should have dealt with it sooner, but next time you do something like that, you're getting demoted down from admin and I will fight to keep you down. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 12:45 PM PST 20 Mar 2009

There's been talk to get you demoted from Bureaucrat. A lot of it. Just saying. Adys 19:53, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Problem re: http://www.wowwiki.com/API_PlaySoundFile

You undid changes I did, without posting a reason. 1. List of soundfile script commands I posted was admittedly huge, and being a very busy non-techie type of wowwiki noob I have no clue if there is a limit or what it is if so. List also perhaps wasn't formatted very well, but don't see that being a reason to delete it. 2. People repeatedly ask for such a list. 3. It's not hard to find a list via google, but hard to find one that's easily searchable and reasonably up-to-date. 4. It's enjoyable for no small number of people given how often this comes up in various forums, to be able to play soundfiles in game. 5. It's an important aspect of many wow films, and a huge part of a 2-hr PVE film I'm fighting a deadline on - which is why I need an easily accessible and searchable list. 6. Next time you decide to destroy work that took someone hours of searching and formatting to do, please don't be rude and leave a reason for why you did it. Parl2001 (talk) 23:38, 20 March 2009 (UTC) (Hey, I just learned how to sign posts, no clue yet how to make paragraphs.)

The page was over 2 megabytes in size. No list like that here - host it externally. Also it's in the history, I didn't delete any revision or anything. Adys 01:02, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
