Images Edit

Thank you for your uploads, but if you would please crop the images before uploading them as per WW:IMAGE, that would be great. User:Coobra/Sig3 05:29, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

RE:Edit

Yes, the page it's trying to look at requires a {{npcbox}} to function, if the page does not contain one (or if the page doesn't exist) it doesn't know what to show, causing the error. What npc page isn't working correctly? User:Coobra/Sig3 01:21, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Red links mean the page doesn't exist, and with no page existing the error occurs. User:Coobra/Sig3 01:29, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
It was linking to a page that didn't exist, the name was misspelled, but thats fixed now. --User:Coobra/Sig3 01:52, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Not sure, [1] looks the same to me. User:Coobra/Sig3 01:57, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
The IRC, but I don't go on it. User:Coobra/Sig3 02:01, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Blood elves in Northrend Edit

Actually Coobra isn't on the WW:BETA list, so I don't think he's there (unless he forgot to add himself). He's propably just good at picking up wrath info from other sources. To answer your question, there's the Sunreavers. CogHammer Ose talk/3721 13:55, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Re: Saltheril Edit

What more do you need? Well, it needs to be specifically mentioned through some official source, for one.

Example: Thrall perfectly fits the description of a Spirit Champion, yet since he was never noted as a Spirit Champion in any official source, we cannot say that he is one.

I'm just following what I've seen and been told. I won't remove Saltheril if you put him on there again, but don't say I didn't warn you if someone else comes along and says/does something about it.

Re: Kael'thas forces Edit

You're right, thanks. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 01:00, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Categories Edit

Categories are made in the plural tense. Please see WW:CAT. User:Coobra/Sig4 19:26, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Problem Images Edit

If you find anymore images that are having issues, please use {{Problem}}. This way if I'm not around someone else can take a look at it. User:Coobra/Sig4 05:03, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

How? Edit

How can I stack templates on the right side of my page in a tower? Polo Boy (talk) 19:36, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Armor? Edit

What armor is this in the picture? Cooldraenei


Friends??? :D Edit

You're sooper-dooper nice. I'm saving up for WoW:TBC. Once I buy it, we can be friends, right? :D Polo Boy (talk) 02:26, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Abilities Edit

Please don't make ability pages for random mobs. They aren't note worthy. User:Coobra/Sig4 00:23, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I thought perhaps uppercut would be used for players in the future, Curse of Thorns perhaps for druid magi's and earthgrab totem is used by a boss. TherasTaneel (talk) 00:25, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
If it gets used in the future it can be made then. As for boss abilities... we try not to make pages for them either. User:Coobra/Sig4 00:30, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
oki. TherasTaneel (talk) 00:31, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Item tooltip updates Edit

Take a look at [2] as an example, and Template:Tooltip as documentation for how we create our item tooltips. If you have any questions, feel free to reply back here or on my talk page. --k_d3 19:36, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

NPCboxes Edit

  • Race = <what it is> Raptor, Weasel, Rat, etc
  • Creature = <what its classified as> Humanoid, Critter, Beast, Undead, etc.

--User:Coobra/Sig4 00:15, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

wayward buzzard Edit

Have you actually tamed one? Know someone who has? I don't hold that "it had Hunter Pet category" on it to be a strong indication that someone's actually tamed one. Still, I can't disprove it either. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:35, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I haven't done that quest myself on my hunter, when I get around that way I'll try if they can be tamed unless someone doesnt beat me to it. I just added the comment based on the indication on wowhead. Should perhaps be removed for the time being? or...added to the talk page. TherasTaneel (talk) 22:56, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Stubs Edit

You're doing a good job with adding images to many of pages without, but could you not replace the screenshot stub with a mob stub, if theres nothing missing from the page. Keep up the good work, User:Coobra/Sig4 22:29, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks :) Im not sure about the info in the npc boxes, that why I put in a mobs stub, so people can check it, if I dont get to in the first edit, even numbers in health e.g. are suspicious. TherasTaneel (talk) 22:35, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Aye, its mostly guaranteed that the health is wrong for any mobs before Wotlk, since addons and such handled getting health amounts back then. It was only recent that Blizzard actually provided that info to be seen without mods. User:Coobra/Sig4 22:38, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Is it ok to delete random-drop charts from mobs, it just seems as such a waste of space? TherasTaneel (talk) 22:40, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Personally I would love to remove things like that, not sure if we should... You should bring that up in the forums and see what kind of response you get. User:Coobra/Sig4 22:44, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
For my own money, I didn't see a lot of harm in leaving them as they were. ... I just don't add new ones... --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 17:55, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Marking redirects for speedydelete Edit

When you move an article due to it being misspelled please remember to to fix the articles they were linked on to the new correct spelling, before marking the redirect for deletion. Otherwise redirects are good. User:Coobra/Sig4 20:40, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

How does one find out if an article is linked in another? Only way I currently know is to read through them all, and there must be a better way. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:42, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Ooo! ooo! I know! The what-links-here link!. You should be able to find that on the left hand column o' links. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:56, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Great! :) thanks. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:03, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
I dont quite get the reason for not deleting Bipp Gizzitor which have been move to his correct spelling Bipp Glizzitor, could you elaborate? TherasTaneel (talk) 20:51, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Primarily, you want to transfer all links to page X to page X' before you delete page X... --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:56, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Fixed that for ya. Bipp Gizzator (not Glizzator) now safe to delete. (Talk pages can be ignored, often, when fixing links. Especially when it would render the conversation incomprehensible!) --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:00, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Righty, saw you did, got there before me :) Thanks again for the above link. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:03, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
No worries. I been here so long, I forgets what it's like bein' relatively new... ;) --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:07, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Illidari category Edit

Hi, TherasTaneel. I want to tell you to not add the category Illidari to articles that aren't confirmed. For example, Vashj is never called Illidari. Thanks. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 02:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh, she was on the Illidan's forces page, so I thought it was confirmed. I would have called her independent too, but meh. Sorry, I'll correct her. TherasTaneel (talk) 02:03, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry. Just note that Illidari appears to be the forces under Illidan himself; while Illidan's forces appears to be it's entire army (the troops commanded under Vashj herself, Kael'thas himself or Kargath himself). The most convenient is to check if the mob is called Illidari, is surrounded by Illidari or if it is said in a quest that it's a Illidari. I've reverted the ones that aren't confirmed to be Illidari, so you don't have to worry.
And also cool job you are doing with all the mobs and NPCs, keep it up :) Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 02:09, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

New articles createdEdit

It's great that you add missing pages, but when you do, could you please add an |image = (insert mob/npc name).jpg in the npc-box and while you are at it give them a

'==External links== ''{{Elinks-NPC|(Insert id-number)}}

at the end of the page. Thanks. TherasTaneel (talk) 19:49, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for giving me this advice, but what exactly do I put for external links? Like where do I find the id-number? Please be patient, I'm not the most skilled at this.>—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Skulkerart (talk · contr).

You are welcome, I'm not anything near an admin I'm new to this too, so for more specific questions you might need to ask them, but I'll help you if I can. Well, first of all remember to end your post with Skulkerart (talk) 02:24, 24 July 2009 (UTC) then one can see who have written the post. I dont know if there are an easier way to get the id-number, but I usually use www.wowhead.com or www.thottbot.com to get their id, its usually seen in the http-link. TherasTaneel (talk) 02:13, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. Skulkerart (talk) 02:24, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

It looks like we are adding images at the same moment. I will leave it to you. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 02:48, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I'm sorry I got there before you did, didn't know you were watching that too. Naah, I'll go to bed now, so you can take over :) Hmm, hope we'll have your presence abit more TherasTaneel (talk) 02:50, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh it must be late there. Okay, I will try to look out for any image requests. Good tag team editing though. See you soon hopefully. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 02:59, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Adding New Images Edit

It seems you are uploading thumbs instead of the original ones, this makes the images alot more blurry than need be, remember to click the image first before copying. As for your current project with adding mobs, a licensing as such would do. Please name your uploaded images with something that is relevant for the content. You can always read through WW:IMAGE for more info. Thanks. TherasTaneel (talk) 22:01, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Whoops :) Skulkerart (talk) 22:11, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Its ok, you are doing good :) TherasTaneel (talk) 22:12, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Skulkerart (talk) 22:19, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Kallnohae's images Edit

While yes he was in the wrong by adding his user name to all the images he uploaded, WW:IMAGE is just a guideline, and fixing it wouldn't have been worth the effort. For each one you would have to upload under the new name, correct to the new name on the articles, then mark the old for deletion, where later it would get deleted by an admin. Four steps for such a minor change. While I thank you for wanting the images named exactly the same as the mob it really wasn't necessary to do want you did. Now, I only say this in hopes you don't fix images' names that lack a space (example: MurlocForager over Murloc Forager). =P User:Coobra/Sig4 23:54, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Naah, I know, it just started to annoy me, and as I had started allready I could just as well finish it.

It makes it easier to add the images to other pages or upload a better version, so lets hope they will be used some time in the future; But no, I'll leave those ones out that miss spaces, heh :) TherasTaneel (talk) 00:00, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Dar'Khan Edit

I'm considering making an entire page simply for the Dar'Khan Drathir boss fight in Deatholme. As you may or may not know, his page is mostly comprised of Lore with only a short paragraph about him in WoW. Giving a seperate page seems like a good idea to me...

Please give me your thoughts on this... Skulkerart (talk) 02:18, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Separate pages for the strategy for a boss is not necessarily a bad idea in any case. But particularly when there is a lot of lore available. Go for it. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 19:51, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Licensing Edit

I'd like to thank you for going through the images and adding licenses, but you're currently in the wrong. Mob/NPC --> only from mobs/NPCs in-game. If they are from WMV they should be in the model viewer category. File:Red drake.jpg is from WMV, keep it in the correct category. User:Coobra/Sig4 18:58, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

User Server templates Edit

You might try looking at Template:User Server or Template:User Server/Servers. I think this is what you are asking for. -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

sadly not, Kaletam (talk · contr) seem to have a US Bladefist server-user template on his user-page, but can't find it elsewhere. TherasTaneel (talk) 22:24, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
I am a little confused - he has {{User Server|Bladefist|US}} this is on the Template:User Server/Servers list (you have to click on the button to put the names in alpha order) to see the name of the server in alpha order. If you are wanting to change the images or colors:
  1. you have to click the edit links at the bottom of Template:User Server for what you want changed.
  2. Find |bladefist=<setting>. (They are not in alpha order, they are in the order in which they were made as they were made).
  3. Change that setting for that parameter, *WARNING* This will affect Everyone that has this template on their page, and save changes.

Thanks, I'll have a look later on, for some reason I wouldn't see it on the list. TherasTaneel (talk) 23:42, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
