Again, welcome!   --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 14:18, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. Hans Kamp 22:06, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

White spaces Edit

Please try to avoid adding white spaces when you edit a page. It affects the layout and looks weird. Regards, Iggey (talk) 20:59, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Do you mean empty lines? Hans Kamp (talk) 12:41, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes. :)--Iggey (talk) 12:57, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I will avoid them from now on. Hans Kamp (talk) 17:15, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

LFG on the PTR Edit

You previously had "Because the Looking For Group/Looking For More is being worked on, the related chat channel is always enabled for everyone, regardless whether players are actually looking for a group or not." Is this from a bluepost on the forums? Or an in game annoucement? I'm just trying to determine if this possibly was deliberate, or just "a PTR thing." I haven't been on the PTR myself yet - too much raiding and Brewfest left to do. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 2:09 PM, 6 Oct 2009 (EDT)

That is also "a PTR thing". I think LookingForGroup chat will be removed as soon LFG/LFM is working as it should (i.e. they are now working on it, but sooner or later it is finished). For that reason, that part can be removed as well. :) Hans Kamp (talk) 14:12, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Just to clarify Edit

In case you miss my comment on the talk page for the first Lich King tactics page - the Lich King is in two instances, Halls of Reflection (5-man) and Icecrown Citadel itself. Much like Kael and Anub'arak, two different instance encounters = two different tactics pages. Just to clear that up. :) --Joshmaul (talk) 06:56, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

I see. Thanks for clarifying. :) Hans Kamp (talk) 07:50, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

Abilities Edit

To quote coobra: "Please don't make ability pages for random mobs. They aren't note worthy. User:Coobra/Sig4" You might want to look at what can be done instead though. TherasTaneel (talk) 16:40, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean by the latter? Hans Kamp (talk) 16:55, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
e.g. if you have a look at the mobs now, or how some of the bosses abilities are made and work out from that. TherasTaneel (talk) 17:00, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
I will look at bosses' abilities and adapt to the conventions that have been used there. Hans Kamp (talk) 17:23, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
Otherwise keep up the good work, its good to know which abilities one can encounter when facing a specific foe. TherasTaneel (talk) 17:36, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
I have seen recent changes to Feral Tender, Mana Stalker adn Manawraith, made by you. I could do the same. :) Hans Kamp (talk) 19:10, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
Not necessarily, but that's about how most of the abilities around are shown. If you find a better way, please apply it. :) TherasTaneel (talk) 19:17, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

Page creation Edit

Please don't create new npc/mob pages with just their abilities please. See Help:NPC articles on creating them, Thank you. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:26, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

I will do that from now on. The Boilerplate could also have an Abilities section. :) Hans Kamp (talk) 21:50, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I was so quick to add info on the kobold, I'll let you to it. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:23, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Pure coincidence that we both worked on it. :) No problem. Hans Kamp (talk) 21:24, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the work on adding new NPCs, Hans. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8:56 PM PST 25 Oct 2009
No problem. There will be a lot of work to be done, in the near future. :) Hans Kamp (talk) 21:18, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

Guess I should have linked Help:Mob articles as well, thats the one most designed for mobs. =) User:Coobra/Sig4 00:57, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

Yes... thanks. I will use that from now on. But sometimes someone is an NPC for the Alliance, and a mob for the Horde. In that case I will see what I should do. Hans Kamp (talk) 06:06, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
If it's friendly to either side, it's an NPC. If it's hostile to both, it's a mob. --User:Gourra/Sig2 08:45, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

See Gourra? You only see your side of things. What about the Dalaran crater wizards? I'd mark them as Humanoids. BobNamataki (talk) 17:16, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

I haven't encountered them yet, neither in-game, nor here in WoWWiki. Hans Kamp (talk) 17:22, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
Bob... Marking as NPCs or Mobs, completely different subject than marking as humanoids. User:Coobra/Sig4 18:37, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. These are two different things. An NPC can be a humanoid (most of them are, though) or a non-humanoid. A mob can be humanoid or a beast. Hans Kamp (talk) 18:39, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Boilerplates Edit

The easiest thing to do is to have a .txt document with all the parameters and categories available, then paste it into the article, fill in the parameters you want and take out those you don't need. See one here. --User:Gourra/Sig2 08:56, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

I was thinking of the same, only I do it in various steps. Now I have a User:Hans Kamp/Item Boilerplate. That is a general boilerplate. I just copied it to User:Hans Kamp/Nobundo's X of Contest which I am stripping for the Shaman epics, sold by Aspirant_Forudir. So I have to delete less, and I think I will make less mistakes. Hans Kamp (talk) 09:06, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

npc template Edit

The {{npc}} template does not seem particularly useful to me: unlike {{item}} it is not distinguished from a normal link.

On putting 'npc' on both the questbox start/end, and within the text, I think it is overkill, but don't care enough to change it.

On putting {{item}} on any and every reference to an item, I do care enough there. ... particularly when one reference is called out for particular notice (objective list, below the objective description). May I peacefully dissuade you from doing that? Happy to listen to counter arguments. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 19:09, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Can you give an example where I overdid this? Hans Kamp (talk) 19:19, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
How about this? --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:19, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Item Pages Edit

Hey, I've noticed a few changes you've been making and I just wanted to inform you on some stuff. Saying what Spec/Class an Item is useful for is redundant for a few reasons:

  1. It is quite obvious from the stats what and who needs this item
  2. If these items drop from a raid, which most of the ones you posted on do, the raid won't usually let you take something you don't need
  3. It's needless space being taken up

On a more positive note, very nice work though and you're efforts are greatly appreciated!

Aside from this minor fluke, keep up the good work! TeeSon5 (talk) 18:33, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I am actually doing this, in order to help people that are new to raiding and to being a Master Looter. Though, I think that I can be mistaken, so I hope others will correct me if I mention the wrong class if the item is actually meant for a different class than the class and/or build that I was mentioning. In the same way, if the player has gathered some emblems, my addition will help players to buy the right item, having their classes and builds in their minds. Hans Kamp (talk) 18:37, November 14, 2009 (UTC)
Like I said, I hope I wasn't coming off as some guy who is ranting at you. The main reason why these type of things don't need to be posted is because, although you wanted to help people new to raiding or handing out loot, it's quite obvious information. Sure, you might make a mistake, but thats not really the big issue.
Posting obvious information is usually looked down upon here because it just takes up space, not to mean you're intentions weren't at the best interest of the reader. Most people will go into a raid knowing what they want, and if not, I doubt a Loot Master would give a Holy Priest some piece of Leather with Agility and Stamina on it :P because we all have our common sense.
And honestly, anybody who's gotten to level 80 should know what type of gear their spec is oriented around. Therefore, these would only be helpful to a new player, who, in most cases, isn't doing endgame raids xD
TeeSon5 (talk) 18:41, November 14, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, there are a number of classes for which the "leveling spec" bears little relationship to the "raiding spec". While some of the stats will be the same, many will be different. Example: Druid - feral spec for leveling, resto or boomkin (or both) for raiding. Very, very different. Appeals such as "well, they'll do research" don't reflect my experience in-game... --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:41, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Costs Edit

{{cost}} is no longer going to support non-gold currency, instead we'd {{costitem}} to be used. And has less upkeep. User:Coobra/Sig4 08:20, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Cataclysm quests, mobs and NPCs Edit

If you (especially the admins) think, I am going too far with the latest Cataclysm related additions to WoWWiki, just let me know, and I will tone down. Hans Kamp (talk) 09:27, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Your opinion is desiredEdit

Hey, just wanted to see if you had an opinion on whether WoWWiki should leave Wikia. Thanks. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 22:28, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

I have yet to read through that discussion. Between tomorrow and the weekend I have more time to read it, and to have an opinion about it. Hans Kamp (talk) 04:10, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
OK, no rush. :) --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 04:12, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, just wanted to let you know we are moving to http://www.wowpedia.org. Feel free to join us! --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 18:13, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
I failed to move there. The user name Hans Kamp is in use and I the password is different from that of WoWWiki. I cannot retrieve a new password either. Hans Kamp (talk) 18:27, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, reclamation bug. >_> We're working on it. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 18:28, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
In that case I will make edits anonymously until "Hans Kamp" is reclamable, which I would like to be notified about. Not possible. I will continue editing WoWWiki in that case, unless you recommend not to do that for the time being. Hans Kamp (talk) 18:31, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
(shrug) It's up to you. The new wiki isn't being updated any more with WoWWiki edits. We'll update you when the reclamation bug is fixed. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 18:34, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
In that case I will use the name Hans K, which seems to work at this moment. Hans Kamp (talk) 18:36, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
Should be fixed now. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 18:59, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
