NPC lists Edit

Loving the information you are providing with your lists! If you could, take a look at the "Inhabitants" section of Astranaar for formatting (for NPCs) and an article like Howling Vale (for mobs). Just hit "edit" and take a look how its laid out. Again, thanks for putting the effort into those lists! If you have any questions, feel free to stop by my talk page.

Shot you a response! Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 14:49, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

Templates, etc. Edit

The list is very comprehensive on the Templates page, but I'd guess people who are generally editing - as opposed to admins, for instance - are going to only use a specific set of them (and, yes, there are sometimes multiple ways of doing the same thing). At some point in the near future I should go through and see what templates I use most often and compile a separate page - do you think something like the Help:Location articles page would be both easy enough to follow and comprehensive? I could model it after that, and also do the same to each boilerplate page. Of course, I'm not the 'end all, be all' here, so I'd throw this around with the community. Is the format of the Location articles page easy to follow and understand? Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:15, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

I think that'd be a great structure to use for the boilerplates - each element is described, with a reference page for final appearance; it should make assembling new pages in correct style and format much easier. I know it'd be a lot of work, but well worth it in the long run. Corgi (talk) 17:58, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Tag?! Likely this will be a summer project for me when I've got the hours to burn. I'll float the idea in the forums just in case anyone else has any input. As always, if you've any questions/suggestions in the meantime, I'm all ears. As far as the here-and-now, if you'd like a short list of articles you can grab markup from, I can always provide that. Sometimes it's easier to do that, and then refer to the template/boilerplate pages in case something's missing. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 18:26, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Well, it let you know I replied somewhere. [insert grin here]
If you do have a list thrown together, I would appreciate it for reference, yes please. You're very kind. I can make a bookmark folder for them so I don't lose track.

Not a problem at all. Hopefully I can think of most of them off the top of my head (I'm away from home atm): Locations (Town - Astranaar)(Place - Howling Vale)(Zone-Ashenvale); NPC (Sentinel Luara); Items (Thaelrid's Greaves (armor), Dissector (weapon), Shadumbra's Head (quest start item), Laughing Sister's Corpse (quest item)); Quests (The Ancient Statuettes); for dungeon-related pages, see Deadmines and Shadowfang Keep (for things like how to list abilities, drops, etc.). I know there's more, but that should be a pretty solid start. The thing to remember most, if you're copying entire pages, is to change the links! Drop me a line if there's anything you can't puzzle your way through. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:05, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

Please see how I edited quest pages you created Edit

There are some minor formatting changes you should use when making future quest pages. The Rewards section should come after Progress and Completion sections (not all the reward info is known before you complete the quest). Also you can put the amount of money rewarded at level 85 until we know more about how the money reward scales.

Other than those things, you're doing a great job adding quests. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4 Nov 2011 4:44 PM Pacific

Oh I also forgot... the category of the quest should be based on the profession for dailies that are related to professions and not the zone. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4 Nov 2011 4:48 PM Pacific

Quest IDs, etc. Edit

I know Fandyllic will likely respond to you as well, but maybe not until later, so I'll respond for some of this. If you go to http://www.wowhead.com and punch in the quest name, you'll see a number in the address bar. So for Remembering the Ancestors you'll see http://www.wowhead.com/quest=29314, and the "29314" would be the quest id you enter. You'll also find the level 85 gold amount on that page. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 07:09, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

You don't have to put the quest id, but please put {{Stub/Quest}} at the top, if you don't know the quest id or don't fill in some obvious info for the quest. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Nov 2011 10:20 AM Pacific

WoWWiki drama and history around the introduction of Oasis skin Edit

I'll give you a few forum links to give you an idea of what was going on at WoWWiki when Wikia tried to introduce the new Oasis skin (which is what the current WoWWiki skin is based on, but not exactly the same). I'd like to preface these links with the fact that I was taking a break from WoWWiki around the time all this happened (due to a disagreement with several of the other admins, led by Pcj). I basically returned to try to keep WoWWiki alive.

Most of the drama was actually happening at Community. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 5 Nov 2011 1:11 PM Pacific

alotEdit

i see you do alot of work--RaceLord (talk) 07:17, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Easy way to keep track of my progress at getting the achievements, and doing some useful work at the same time. [smile] -- Corgi (talk) 07:21, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Sortable tables Edit

Here is some example wikicode:

{| class="sortable"
|-
!align="left"|NPC !! Location !! Cost
|-
|{{NPC|Alliance|Noraani|Reagent Merchant}} || [[Zangarmarsh]] || {{cost||2}}
|-
|{{NPC|Neutral|Skreah|Alchemy Supplies}} || [[Shattrath City]] || {{cost||2}}
|-
|{{NPC|Alliance|Timothy Daniels|The Specialist}} || [[Zangarmarsh]] || {{cost||2}}
|-
|{{NPC|Horde|Pol Snowhoof|Trade Goods}} || [[Blade's Edge Mountains]] || {{cost||2}}
|}

Which gives:

NPC Location Cost
Official alliance mini-icon Noraani <Reagent Merchant> Zangarmarsh 2Silver
Neutral 15 Skreah <Alchemy Supplies> Shattrath City 2Silver
Official alliance mini-icon Timothy Daniels <The Specialist> Zangarmarsh 2Silver
Official horde mini-icon Pol Snowhoof <Trade Goods> Blade's Edge Mountains 2Silver

Or fancier (darktable + zebra), change:

{| class="sortable"

...to:

{| class="darktable sortable zebra"

...and get:

NPC Location Cost
Official alliance mini-icon Noraani <Reagent Merchant> Zangarmarsh 2Silver
Neutral 15 Skreah <Alchemy Supplies> Shattrath City 2Silver
Official alliance mini-icon Timothy Daniels <The Specialist> Zangarmarsh 2Silver
Official horde mini-icon Pol Snowhoof <Trade Goods> Blade's Edge Mountains 2Silver

You are a minor diety. Corgi (talk) 17:30, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

Pics Edit

Nice shots! Just wanted to pop in and say that - especially the Pinnacle vista with the dragon in the background. Given your solid edits, would you by any chance be interested in becoming a patroller? This is a small step up that allows you to rollback any vandalism you might come across while cruising the site. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:44, June 16, 2012 (UTC)

No problem with any sort of schedule! I'll bump you up and update your user box to give you the matching title. Any help is always appreciated :) Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:01, June 16, 2012 (UTC)

Alani, etc. Edit

Are you referring to a tool that will allow us to upload information from other data sites, like wowhead? I'm not familiar with the Girl Genius site, but if that's the case, there isn't a tool for that. Everything pretty much has to be done individually. Let me know if it was something else you were meaning!

I'll take a look at the Alani page tomorrow and make some tweaks, if Fandyllic doesn't see any major issues in the meantime. Right now the beta is experiencing some issues Tongueout. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 03:34, June 18, 2012 (UTC)

No, no - just something that'll allow more than one picture at a time to be uploaded. Jeezly Gawd, I start to lose track if I have a dozen to put up. GG is on Wikia as well, I don't see why the tool's enabled there and not here.
Alani might have some better ways to do things at the code level, but looks fine otherwise. I mean, it all works as intended.
I noticed about the beta. First they close Jade Forest and ruin those plans, now this. Kvetch, kvetch, moan, moan. At least I finished the Exploration, and before L87 too! (It would have been before L86 but for some questing in the middle.)

I've been using Special:MultipleUpload. I think you've got access to that for uploading multiple pics. Let me know if you can use that. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 00:07, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
