Facta Non Verba (Arathor) Wiki Assistance Edit

We are deeply appreciative of your willingness to assist us as we work on creating our own Guild Website. Your ideas and coding corrections have taught us a great deal about HTML and wiki. We have been busy adding features to our site, most recently, the Flash and editcout extensions.

The current glitch that I am fighting is spacing in the "userbox" (We called it "drawbox") On WoWWiki, there is no spacing between lines, yet on our site, there is this funny half line between text. A sample page of our Fluff Templates demonstrates this issue well.

In your free time, if you could examine this issue and advise us what changes should be made to eliminate this pesky spacing, we would be, again, deeply in debt to you.

Things to learn Edit

The things to learn for Wiki/hmtl coding only increase with the more you show us =]. The 100% line height corrected the weird spacing issues. Adjustment to the box height did not eliminate the spacing under the image so more investigations to follow. "valign" being difficult for some reason. I will examine Chrome and continue to learn
Out thanks again for your willingness and ability to assist us.

Sign issues Edit

Your sign is placing a lot of code in the pages.
Go to Special:Preferences and put {{subst:User:Howbizr/signX}} as a sign.
You will then be able to sign with the ~~~~, adding date&time in the same time.
The two pages used to do this are User:Howbizr/sign and User:Howbizr/signX.

Why do you torture yourself to create a template to include the date in another template? :)
Do like I indicated you, and when you want to change your sign, just edit User:Howbizr/sign, or if you want to create a new, then put {{User:Howbizr/MY NEW SIGN}} in User:Howbizr/signX.

Arena items Edit

I am forced to hate you, now... Each season should have a template that can be included on each of the Season X pages that says...

This is a [Season X Arena Reward]
{{Removedfromgame}} if appropriate
Requires arena rating of X to acquire from vendors.

... assuming that the arena rating is constant between vendor types. I'm confident that early arena gear at least had differing levels of rating required.

You get my idea, in any case, yes? A single template, you could feed in the number, and it would check (season < N ? add removedfromgame). Multiple templates, you could add 'removed' to each individually. I'm guessing, though, folks would prefer the single template that "just knew".

... and it's all your fault! :) --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:50, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

RE: Signature Edit

My signature is a template found here {{:User:Jrooksjr/Sig1}} -- but I use ~~~~ to show it -- in my preferences i have {{SUBST:user:Jrooksjr/Sig1}} so that I can use the -- ~~~~ to produce it that is shorter than {{:User:Jrooksjr/Sig1}} and is easier to remember -- (M o r p h | C | T) IconSmall Gnome MaleIconSmall Draenei Male 00:05, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Ha ha -- the < nowiki > and < /nowiki> tags was to make it show up on the txt for here -- in my preference it only has {{SUBST:user:Jrooksjr/Sig1}} it automaticaly puts {{SUBST:}} when using a template page for your signature. I cant remove that.
I just have to put ~~~ if I want my signature to apear as (M o r p h | C | T) IconSmall Gnome MaleIconSmall Draenei Male         ~~~~ to apear as (M o r p h | C | T) IconSmall Gnome MaleIconSmall Draenei Male 13:31, 20 June 2009 (UTC)           or ~~~~~ to apear as 13:31, 20 June 2009 (UTC)         and the squiglies are easier to remember then {{:Jrooksjr/Sig1}} and shorter as well -- (M o r p h | C | T) IconSmall Gnome MaleIconSmall Draenei Male 13:31, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Heroic 25-man - Normal 10-man Edit

We are probably heading toward a long debate, but 25-man and 10-man seem more easily identifiable than Heroic/Normal, mainly when it's "hard mode encounter"/"normal mode encounter".

IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 23:11, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't think there will be much debate - sinc in Patch 3.2.0 the WoW interface now shows these as Instace difficulty options (after rightclicking on your Portrait):
  • Dungeon Difficulty
    • 5 Player
    • 5 Player (Heroic)
  • Raid Difficulty
    • 10 Player
    • 25 Player
    • 10 Player (Heroic)
    • 25 Player (Heroic)
We will be using 5 Player, 10 Player, 25 Player and their Heroic counterpart when appropriate -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

Template {{Patchbox}} Edit

I was trying to make it so that Undocumented changes would always show up in the Related section - but I could not get it to work right on some of the other patches like Patch 3.1.1 - for some reason if I did not have Current set then it would add a 3rd column and put Patch Chronology in the 3rd column (thus squeezing everything to the left 2 columns ) so I gave up and put it back to its original state - we will just have to manualy add the Undocumented changes to the Template using |Related= section as always I guess. -- (M o r p hJames E.

Heh figures - I figured it out after posting - now so long as |Current= is set then Undocumented Changes will always display even as a red link if the page does not yet exist -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

IF Gourra leaves the template as it stands - we have a link to Undocumented Changes if they exist under the |Prev and |Next without shrinking the data together on smaller screens - just makes the template 1 line longer than before -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

I went back as far as Patch 2.4.3 looking to make sure all is ok - some had current set as well as a link to Undocumented Changes so I removed the extra link - Most all had a link to the Undocumented changes so it is accessable even if |Current is not set -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

Now I went back all the way to Patch 1.10.0 all have |Current= that needed it - but basicaly Pre Burning Crusades there were no Undocumented changes so |Current= is not needed for them (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

I'd more believe that no undocumented changes got noticed, or that those patches do not currently have a corresponding "undocumented changes" page, rather than that they did not have any undocumented changes at all... :) --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:56, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd go with that - I have looked in the past for any other sites with changes that were not listed - WoWWiki has more patch notes from pre BC than any other site so far - so unless someone knows of another site with hidden links to changes not documented in patch notes then we (WoWWiki) hav all the known patch notes documented or undocumented -- (M o r p hJames E.

{{BannerStub/PTR}} Edit

I like the {{BannerStub/PTR}}, for when there are just 1, 2, 3 or so achievements but on Feats of Strength achievements where I had to move like 30 achievements over to there I think I will still stick to the larger {{Stub/PTR}} template to denote the Massess -- but thanks for showing me the smaller version. --(M o r p hJames E.

The small version can be nice for sections... I would rename it to {{PTR-section}} though, to make it known what its for, by name alone. User:Coobra/Sig4 02:16, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
That should be fine. I just don't like the word banner.. that makes me think of something that belongs at the top of the page. User:Coobra/Sig4 02:28, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

{{LocationIcon}} Edit

I do like that new template as well - and plan on using it as I can when appropriate - I have it on my watchlist - so I can see changes but also so I can remember it as well if I forget it -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

I made a made a page {{Coords/dev}} that incorporates {{LocationIcon}} into {{Coords}} - and idea I had but will let you decide if it is good or not to do so
Here is a example using {{coords/dev|<10>|<10>|<Un'goro>}} [10, 10]

Page moves Edit

Those page you specified Glory of the Raider (25 player)/patch3.1.0 was a {{transclude}} pages - if you go to the main page that used it -- the page looked fine so I did not think it needed to be fixed (only because it was a transcluded page - I did not think the name mattered as much) -- the page I moved had to be moved to make it fit with the new upcoming name changes to the achievement in Patch 3.2.0 - was going to happen eventualy -- (M o r p hJames E.

I see what you mean on the other pages that were also referencing that page. {{Achievement}} works fine with redirects but {{achievementlong}} does not, it just shows that the page it is refering to was redirected - sighs not good. Every achievement on the following pages:
Dungeons & Raids achievements/Lich King Raid (28 achievements), Dungeons & Raids achievements/Lich King Heroic Raid (28 achievements), Dungeons & Raids achievements/Secrets of Ulduar Raid (too many) and Dungeons & Raids achievements/Secrets of Ulduar Heroic Raid (too many)
have to be renamed (Moved) because of the addition of (10 player) to the end of all Wrath of the Lich King normal mode raids and because of the removal of Heroic: from the begining and the addition of (25 player) to the end of every Wrath of the Lich King heroic mode raids. - I am begining to HATE Patch 3.2.0!!! -- (M o r p hJames E.

Also with page moves, if you're renaming a page because you used the wrong name, please mark the old page with {{sd}} at the bottom. If you're naming an existing page, after you have corrected all the links, then please also mark is for speedy delete. However, let's make an exception for the Patch 3.2.0 renames. Instead of marking those articles for speedy delete, just add this category (Category:Articles that were renamed in Patch 3.2.0). Then someone will run a bot to delete all those pages after the patch comes out. I think I cleaned up all the pages you missed but you're welcome to double check - you'll remember what you did better than me. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 12:17 PM, 11 Jul 2009 (EDT)

Transclusion page Edit

I would agree with you on any other page other than Transcluded pages that used the template {{patched}} that was the CHEAP way out of adding a update to the achievements that used that transclusion page -- so I copied the Transclusion to the individual pages to make the PROPER and then marked that page for deletion - the way they should have been done in the 1st place - it took me a whole 1 minute to copy / paste the info intot he correct pages and have the section

Patch changesEdit

show the correct {{patched}} information and made them totaly un dependent of that particular trancluded page ( normaly multi achievements would not use the same patched info so the tranclusion should never have been made -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

I know how to add to it - I did that when I added the {{patched}} changes to 1 or 2 of the pages - but it looked weird haveing {{patched|patch=3.2.0|note= changes}} then {{:Transcluded page}} and like I said it took me a whole 1 minutes to make all 4 page changes - anyhow it is done the way you think it should be and I will not change it or any others like it (in the future) but I still do NOT agree with the idea of using the {{transclude}}d page the way it was used their for a patch change ( never will agree with it ) -- (M o r p hJames E.

Additional achievement changes needed on the (10 player) achievement Edit

I see you are doing the Dungeons & Raids achievements/Lich King Raid achievements page. Before you get to far in just renaming them - inside of the individual achivements when it says: "Defeat Combat 15 Sartharion the Onyx Guardian on Normal Dificulty" the words On Normal Dificulty needs to be changed to in 10 player mode. and from what I can tell if it mentions the difficulty in the middle of the achievement - they are removing it and add the 10 player mode to the END of them all ( same will go for the 25 player as well -- wirebrain shows what I mean -- (M o r p hJames E.

Speedy Delete Edit

You'll learn this soon enough, if you become an admin, the speedydelete template should come before the redirect, otherwise the page continues to redirect anyway. From a deleters point of view, its 3 pages visited to delete the one, rather than just 2 pages. Its not a huge deal, just makes life easier.

RE: Template:Spell Edit

I would say not, spells/abilities are not that notable... unless you mean for it to work on player class spells? But you'd probably have to ask Pcj about that. User:Coobra/Sig4 22:01, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

It is nice to have, for player abilities, but for specific mobs a page would have to be created for each spell for it to be linked to... and I think thats where the issue came in, that we aren't a database and the spells weren't notable to keep each having its own page. User:Coobra/Sig4 22:23, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Just thought of a addition to the {{coords}} {{locationIcon}} templates - now that Blizz has released maps of Northrend instances - could they be added into both? then we could add locations of {{npc|<>|<Npc>|<>|<Npc's>}} and {{mob|<Mob>|<Mob's>}} inside of the instance maps, or would that be giving out too much to the public ( not to mention all the work of going to all pages / achievements / etc ) to add them in ? -- (M o r p hJames E.

Kewl if he can fix that, it might also fix the zebra setting ( same thing - works fine on main pages but not thru ajax ) - then all we have to do (in future) is add new achievements to the end of list - and zebra will stripe the pages and if you want it sorted you click on the sort button - no more using class=alt on anything and no worring about alpha orders ( if he can fix it thru ajax ). -- (M o r p hJames E.

Re: Little formating question Edit

I had not gotten back to the Feats of Strength pages - I was there to move an achievement and added the sortable paramater while I was there - if you look at the pages that I used for examples General achievements, Quest achievements/General or Quest achievements/Classic about the sortable paramater not working - I have table set up like this:

the 1st column is unsortable as is description - because the icons wont sort if you click on sort buttons (my guess is because they are not text that can be sorted) -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

Socketable gems Edit

Please join us in conversation going on at Forum:Gem type categories. I would appreciate you describing your reasoning on merging socketable gems with 'gems items' there. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:05, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

On the plus side, most of the work I've done today was on the non-controversial side. ... as far as categories goes. Smiley --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:51, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


While you seem to be on the short end of the "socketable" debate, I'd like to be sure that you would accept - for now - using that word in the category name. Don't want to start work and torque you off in the process.

Changing it (IE renaming the category) would be a matter of setting a bot on the task. But gaining the will to do so is a bit harder. Thus, I ask before I start if it is okay. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 18:12, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Achievement Groupings now that class=darktable sortable zebra works properly thru {{Ajaxsub}} Edit

Now that the darktable paramters work properly thru {{Ajaxsub}}, I am going back over the achievement pages and regroup them inside of the page - so that when you 1st look at the pages all of the (Items, Mobs, Mounts, Skills, etc ...) are together - untill the "Sort" buttons are used to regroup the lists by those categories. I will problably NOT be touching the Exploration and Quest pages, only because they do not have any real groups to deal with. I did the General achievements page already and will start with the Player vs. Player achievements pages on up thru Feats of Strength achievements. P.S. you will have to have java or java-scripts turned on in order to see the zebra striping and to see the sort buttons as well. In the long run this will make adding, editing, moving and removing achievements easier because we no longer have to put the |-class=alt tags in anymore on simple table lists (the tables with | colspan=# and | rowspan= will still need the alt tags). -- (M o r p hJames E.

wow/bc/wotlk Inlines with {{sort}} Edit

I think I fixed all three to use {{FactionIcon}} again.
{{npc|<Alliance>|<Thorim>}} {{Mob|<Thorim>}}
{{npc|<Neutral>|<Thorim>}} {{Mob|<Thorim>|<test mob>}}
{{npc|<Horde>|<Thorim>}} {{Mob|Thorim|test mob||ah=1}}
{{npc|<Combat>|<Thorim>}} {{Mob|Thorim|test mob||ah=-1}}

There is only 1 small drawback -- if you mouse over the Combat icon it says "Combat Crest" I do not know how to get rid of it -- it only shows up that way on these templates - if you go to the NPC page and look at the {{Npcbox}} and mouse over the icon it says "Combat" there -- (M o r p hJames E.

Titanium Powder. Edit

Just saw you removed the JC Token sold from Tiffany Cartier. Being on the PTR, which is in its definitive / retail version, I can confirm you that she does indeed sell a JC token for 10 Titanium Powders, and there is no such quest as Titanium Powder. So I'm wondering, where did you see that this quest was implemented on the PTR? I'd like to hear from you before reverting the change. =) Cityhunter0505 - Etsuko (talk) 23:21, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

There is a quest for this found on wowheads website. I think is is a repeatable quest like the [Relics of Ulduar] and [Everfrost Chips] are to the Sons of Hodir for rep.
The information Cityhunter0505 is talking about is even on MMO Champion:

Patch 3.2 - Where can I get Epic Gems? The patch will probably hit the live servers very soon and a lot of people ask me the same question : Where can I get the Epic Gems? It shouldn't be hard to answer that, currently there are 4 ways to get them :

Jewelcrafting / Prospecting You can find epic gems by prospecting Titanium Ore, it's probably not the best way to get it because Titanium is already fairly expensive but if you need as many gems as possible and don't want to wait, go for it. Prospecting Titanium will give you an epic gem 25~30% of the time, the droprate for rare gems seems to be the same, and you will always get an uncommon gem. If you're lucky enough you can even get 2 epics on the same prospect.

Note: You will also get Titanium Powder 60% of the time, you can exchange 10 of them for a Dalaran Jewelcrafter's Token and get your new recipes even faster.

Alchemy New transmutations are available for these gems. (20 Hours cooldown)

  • Transmute: Ametrine
  • Transmute: Cardinal Ruby
  • Transmute: Dreadstone
  • Transmute: Eye of Zul
  • Transmute: King's Amber
  • Transmute: Majestic Zircon

PvE - Emblems of Heroism You can buy any of the epic gems for Emblem of Heroism. These emblems do not drop anymore in 3.2 and are replaced by Emblems of Conquest in heroic instances / raids dungeons but you can still exchange higher tier emblems. (Emblem of Conquest -> Emblem of Valor > Emblem of Heroism.

  • Cardinal Ruby, Majestic Zircon, King's Amber can be bought for Emblem of Heroism x 20.
  • Ametrine, Dreadstone, Eye of Zul can be bought for Emblem of Heroism x 10.

PvP - Honor Last but not least, you can buy any of the epic gem for 10,000 Honor Points.

Yeah, I saw the page on Wowhead, but the quest is nowhere to be found on the PTR. Now, both the Wowhead and the Wowwiki page are empty of information (such as the quest giver, etc.), so I'm guessing it may have been the dev's intention to make it a repeatable quest (and so may have been data mined), but it (the JC tokens) was introduced as a buyable item for 10 powders on the PTR. And by the way, all the 3.2 JC changes were made weeks before MMO posted this. =) Cityhunter0505 - Etsuko (talk) 02:18, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
I was agreeing with both of you and made the same post on both pages - showing you where the quest info was (I did not download the PTR this time around so could not see if it is on there or not) and showing her the info on mmo-champion - you both are right wowhead shows it is a quest and mmo-champion verifies what you said - so the info should be on the page. -- (M o r p hJames E.

Reverted the change on Tiffany's page. Whether or not the quest exist (I'm guessing it was never actually implemented on the PTR), Tiffany Cartier does sell the token for 10 powders. =) Cityhunter0505 - Etsuko (talk) 04:20, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Oops wrong - your changes did not work for IE - they are still not there on IE but are perfect on Firefox - you should not have to have the extra |- then |- style line because the |- says end of style and then does the new style -- It is only a IE problem -- so I think it is in the zebra setting - and it is only messing up 4 colors Red, Blue, Purple and Orange the other colors Green and Yellow are fine even on IE -- (M o r p hJames E.

Heh, as I mentioned I am using 2 browsers - IE works fine for some things and Firefox for other -- For instance the table setting |- align:center does NOT work on Firefox -- the tables show up LEFT alligned but in IE it is centered on the page -- but this color issue -- works fine on Firefox but not on IE -- so which is the best browser (Both are and none are) but anyhow back to the color issue -- IE shows the colors pefectly while teh page is loading -- but when all scripts are loaded as well as wikia ad's then the colors go away -- so it sounds like a scripting problem ( remember Pcj said that he had to do something a little differently to get zebra setting to work on IE so I am figuring it is in that setting that is messing up the colors -- I let Pcj know of the problem so he can look into it. -- (M o r p hJames E.

You might want to ask Kaydeethree about that in general -- I know the difference between the 2 templates - but some time ago I was requested to use {{Achievementlong}} for the one in the title and to use {{achievement}} when making lists -- I originaly was using achievementlong for everything.

Re some of my recent changes removing the term Azeroth, I'm trying to fix the times that "Azeroth" is used incorrectly to mean "the playable world before Burning Crusade". Now that we can play in Northrend, which is part of Azeroth, dividing the playable world into "Azeroth, Outland, and Northrend" is incorrect. I figure "Classic" is a good term when referring to something that's not strictly geographical (like an event such as Children's Week), but it's not ideal. Still, Azeroth is flatly wrong and there needs to be something better. (I used "Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor" sometimes but that feels too wordy for some cases.) Just wanted to explain. I may open a forum topic on it but will need to wait on that. Cheers. -- Harveydrone 23:27, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Against the Odds achievement Edit

PTR: Build 10192 did remove the achievement Against the Odds from the game. It did not get converted over to a Feat of strength, just as all of the Emblems of Heroism, Valor, and Conquest achievements did not get converted over (all were removed in build 10192) you can check wirebrain's list of current achievements as of PTR build 10192, wirebrain's list of changes from PTR build 10192, Wohead: Feats of Strength achievements and Wowhead: Wintergrasp achievements. The achievements are no longer there. -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

I will go along with the note for now - but so far ( since achievements were added to the game. ), wirebrain's list of changes from PTR build 10192 or any other build has not been wrong yet, and Blizzard is notorious for not updating patch notes especialy with last minute changes, hence the undocumented changes pages we have on WoWWiki. -- (M o r p hJames E.

Acording to a reply to a post I made at General Forum by a player: The Emblems were a last minute change ( as I mentioned above in build 10192 ) and were removed from Feats of Strength achievements and placed in the Raid UI. I will bet anything they removed Money achievement Against the Odds as last minute change and just removed it from the game all together. It no longer shows up in my Achievement screen ingame as Feat of strength nor Wintergrasp achievement and it does not show up on my WoW Armory achievement page for my character. I will still way a day or so to see if a developer replies, but I know it was removed now for sure, 2 3rd party web databases (one that is super reputable and one that is pretty reputable) all agree with me. -- (M o r p hJames E.

Respect Edit

Being an admin does not give anyone the right to make blaten reversion without giving the respect of and explanation as to why, nor does it not give them a reason to do something as simple READING why the changes occured. If they want respect, they have to give it as well or as many of the admin's have been accused of, they become BULLY's just because they have to power to do so. -- (M o r p hJames E.

I know what you're trying to say, and while I'll agree that most of our admins seem to be lazy on protocol (aka "revision comments" and "when to select minor edit"), some of what are you describing is just "the wiki way." Don't take this the wrong way because I like you - I'm just trying to "be real" as it were.
A few things to keep in mind. Assume good faith. I don't think Coobra was abusing any power - certainly none that you don't have as well. I'm assuming he just felt like your edit was wrong, or not complete, or something like that. Hopefully you can get some better reasoning from him.
Secondly, it's on the page every time you make an edit, "If you don't want your writing to be edited mercilessly or redistributed by others, do not submit it." You must be comfortable with this. It's just the way wikis work. If you want an untouched page that no one else can edit, you need to start a blog or something to that effect.
Lastly, "All contributions are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA," as in, once you click "save" it's no longer "yours," it's the community's. They are just as much a part of it as you. You are going to get out voted on things you are passionate about, and you just have to accept that. But just because an admin clicks "undo," doesn't mean you can't fire back with another revision. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 1:20 PM, 12 Aug 2009 (EDT)
  1. It was as Gourra not Coobra
  2. The Assume good faith goes both ways (it applies to the Admins too), especialy when I did have my changes documented for them to read on the talk page - so that was him not assuming good faith.
  3. Editting is not the same as REVERTING (I have had many of my edits re-editted) - it does not say if you want your edits REVERTED mercillessly.
  4. Overall I have (when documented why) left the reversion - but when I disagree with the reversion, I reverted it and I documented WHY I did so as well -- I did not just go I dont agree with this and just undo them - like the mount - I do not agree with you on it being NYI (just because no one has earned it yet) but I did give in on the note saying it can not be earned untill September. -- (M o r p hJames E.

Frag belt Edit

Um... Looking on the Kirkburn talk page, I note that you edited item links a previous editor had used, to make use of the {{item}} template. I really gotta ask why ya did that.

Patch 3.2.2 is not on the PTR server yet so we can not put patch notes, but if you go to the patch page you can see a big box showing the post from BlizzZarhym stating that we will be getting that mount in patch 3.2.2 (soon to be on the PTR servers) and for their 5th anivarsery all who log in will get a pet as well.

RE: Boss Templating Edit

With regard to the Lord Jaraxxus page - I realize there's an established format, which was one thing when there were two difficulties. It seems like a lot of extra space for no particular reason when there are four modes, all with the same abilities, just different numbers. If there's a process that needs to be gone through to introduce a new format, by all means point me to it. But it does seem like a table is a much better way to present boss abilities.

Paladins_as_tanks Edit

In Paladins_as_tanks you added an external link to "Maintankadin": www.maintankadin.com . This seems to be a cybersquatting site now. It survived several edits, though, so I wonder if it used to be legit. The Maintankadin forums link underneath is for maintankadin.failsafedesign.com, suggesting the first one was a typo. But if so, then the links are basically duplicates (the main page seems to also be the forums!). I was going to change it, but thought I'd run it by you first.

Yellow and Green updated, though as I've been going along, my template has been evolving. Earlier pages may need to be revisited. Check Solid Azure Moonstone for an example of what I'm doing currently. As I've been going through these, I've realized that most of the uncommon BC gems are for sale as well. But since a) I don't think of buying those gems, and b) nobody is really going to care that much about BC uncommons, I've not been putting them in Purchased gems. Also keeps that category from being cluttered, hiding the gems that can only be purchased.... --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 17:30, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

You need to look at the time edits of my posting and your edits (I made the posting before you made your last edit) so YOU were the better one to merge it, I might have Interfered with your edits at the time if I did any changes on the page you was working on at the time.
My behavior has changed!?!? I can not even make a suggestion on what I feel needs to be added to a template without an ADMIN undoing my suggestions in which I did revert and stated why I reverted them and again they reverted them and again I reverted and stated why and they again reverted. I could NOT revert again because, I would then be Violating the WoWWiki:Three revert rule and would be Banned for a few days and still would not have my suggestions listed.

Zarhym article Edit

Heya, Howbizr, and thanks for the 'proper welcome' :) Much appreciated.

As for the article on Zarhym, my intent was to remove this line:

"A short time ago, Zarhym was received with some ill tempers for a negative response to a view held by many of the World of Warcraft Community.[1] "

My personal opinion is that this serves little purpose, however good-intentioned it may have been. The CMs receiving negative responses about particular subjects is like saying the sun always sets - posters on the forums will always disagree in one shape or form and, just because a thread contains negative posts does not by any means mean that the majority of the community agrees! Also, there's the small matter of the subject spilling over from Wowwiki back onto the forums, which it did, creating unnecessary drama :P Given the reaction, it seems that the aforementioned line may stray from the "neutral point of view" adopted on the wiki, as it paints Zarhym (unintentional, I'm sure) in a negative light.
