Revolutionary sparkles

Re Quest:The Stone That Started A Revolution, it must have changed since I did the quest, then, as I did NOT see the sparkles when I did the quest. Back in February or earlier. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 16:40, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

I don't recall them sparkling either, but now they do. Yay :) TherasTaneel (talk) 16:42, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Image replacements

Why not upload new images under the same name as the one that was there? It would save a step. Is it the formats?--SWM2448 20:02, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

yes, I don't know how to make them that png type. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:04, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, ok. If you use a PC, and want to save it as one, I could try to help.--SWM2448 20:08, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Sure, how does one do that? TherasTaneel (talk) 20:10, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Png example
When you see a screen like this, scroll down and select the one you want, or type it after the period in the file name. Did that help at all?--SWM2448 20:46, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, right, that scrollbar option isn't available, but the naming of the file-type is, thanks. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:55, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

Without the dropdown box listing the file type, it is possible that you could (for instance) save a file with the .png extension, but with the .jpg format. I don't know what you use, Theras, so I can't say. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:27, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, it seems I only save it as a .png but as you say is in reality a jpg still *sighs*. Isn't there an easy "file-converter" out there somewhere? TherasTaneel (talk) 04:56, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

Image renaming

Rather than making a talk page asking for a rename, which will most often go unnoticed. Just use the {{move}} template, you don't have to provide the new name if you don't want to, but at least it will be thrown in category for it to get noticed. User:Coobra/Sig4 04:37, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

Oh right,..that would make it much easier to notice. Thanks, didn't know about that option. TherasTaneel (talk) 04:39, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

Preloads

If someone creates a page with a preload, give them a chance to make the changes before stepping in and doing all of it for them. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:18, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Sure, but it had allready info like blood elf, and a name, although it was a kobold, but yes. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:20, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Cause its a preload. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:23, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, thought a preload were the base boiler,...or whatever those boxes are called. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:24, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

New sig

Are you hating on blood elves? ;) You know, I just figured I'd keep my signature consistent with my user page. Anyhow, thanks for the compliment! IconSmall AmberrockAMBER(ЯΘ<K) 01:16, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

Hating? is "to hate" right, or does it have some other meaning? What gave you that idea? You're welcome :) TherasTaneel (talk) 01:58, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
I was just joking around, don't mind it too much :P . IconSmall AmberrockAMBER(ЯΘ<K) 09:27, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
Ok :) TherasTaneel (talk) 23:39, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

Characters

What's with your character section? BobNamataki (talk) 23:13, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure, undeveloped section I guess? TherasTaneel (talk) 00:51, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
They're not your characters, they're npcs. BobNamataki (talk) 14:00, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
If you search armory for the names and the server, you'll see they are characters. TherasTaneel (talk) 05:41, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
So,... all created with easy access to the armory, don't even have to type anymore, just click. Lazy bastards... :) TherasTaneel (talk) 19:32, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Dragonflight and Capitalization

Your voice is most welcome here

IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 17:21, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out the discussion, I had all but withdrawn from the wiki for various reasons; mainly lack of time.
But,...it seems its addictive pull have begun to stir. :) TherasTaneel (talk) 20:52, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Talonstrike

Yeah, I was going to comment it on Coobra's talk, but you removed it sooo fast :)

For a similar name on weapons, think disambigpage.

IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 21:46, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks!

lol, thanks!

Pearls

I'm just shy of caring enough to remove the recipes from the several pearl pages that include them. Too much maintenance. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:37, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Erm,..I'm not sure what you mean, english isn't my native language. But let me try. What I think you are saying is that there are some pearls which have some recipes listed in which they are no longer needed? Am,...I right? TherasTaneel (talk) 20:53, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry... there are a few 'pearl' pages that instead of listing just "is used in this item" lists the entire recipe for those items. Siren's Tear for example. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:02, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
Oh,...yes,...thought about changing that, but thought others would mind, so I left it and just added icons for it to be easy on the eye. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:05, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

About talk pages

I do not mind what you are doing regarding talk pages, but I did find this guideline a while back. I am not going to take any action against you. I just felt it would be hypocritical if I did not at least point it out. Carry on. Just keep it in mind.--SWM2448 00:20, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

Altering other people's talk page comments

Why did you alter another person's welcome message with this edit?--Rockfang (talk) 19:19, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Move tags

I'd like to thank you for using the move template over just uploading duplicate images and marking the old with a speedydelete, however, could you do a favor for me and instead of doing {{Move|"Melika Isenstrider"}}, just leave the quotes out and make it {{Move|Melika Isenstrider}} or even {{Move|File:Melika Isenstrider.jpg}}. It would make it a tad easier for me. Thanks again, and awesome job on the images. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:58, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

Welcoming again

I noticed you welcomed Whitedragon254 again, but he apparently did not want one the first time. There is nothing wrong with it, but it seems a wasted effort on your part, especially if he removes it again.--SWM2448 23:45, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

Guess you're right. TherasTaneel (talk) 23:52, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

For your work on the images

The Golden Kobold The Golden Kobold
Coobra has awarded TherasTaneel with the Golden Kobold, for his work here at WoWWiki!

For going above and beyond (and even some unnecessary edits) to many MANY images across WoWWiki. Smiley User:Coobra/Sig4 21:56, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

I humbly accept this award, thanks! :) TherasTaneel (talk) 21:59, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
Congratulations! I did not know anyone remembered that the Golden Kobold existed... but you deserve it!--SWM2448 22:02, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Pursuant to this, I like to nominate people who for the most part have correct SD taggings (you had one recently that was contested [at my talk page]) for adminship (you currently have something over 1500 deleted contributions). Because I'd rather have you doing that than making me have to. Would you accept such a nomination? --Sky (t · c · w) 15:33, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Oh,...well, that gives the possibility to make the work myself, instead of just loading it on others. If I can be of service, I'll accept a nomination. Thanks for the vote of confidence, although I'm not sure I think it is sufficient if I should choose someone for adminship. TherasTaneel (talk) 18:45, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
It worked for Coobra. You've been around a while, and courteously responded to my request just below. I'll be along later to poke you again to accept. --Sky (t · c · w) 22:41, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
Please sign at WW:RFA#TherasTaneel. --Sky (t · c · w) 22:47, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
Just thought that either Eirik Ratcatcher and/or A'noob which seems way more experienced than me needed something similar/instead, that was my line of thought... TherasTaneel (talk) 19:36, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
I asked him before, and Eirik does not seem to want Adminship.--SWM2448 21:10, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Not sure what I'd do with Adminship that I'm not doing currently. I only rarely catch someone actively vandalizing pages, for instance. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:54, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
I guess you're right, if the tools are sufficient, why add more options. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:59, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Defaultsort

Please don't add this for the general case. It's hardly ever necessary, and you'll know when it is necessary. (Items... usually not.) --Sky (t · c · w) 02:01, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I saw it on some of the similar items and just continued the practise. I won't in the future, thanks. TherasTaneel (talk) 10:56, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
It's a "feature" of AWB (which it shouldn't be), so as to generate consistent categorizing for articles with lowercase letters in their name. I'm going to likely file a request to remove that in general fixes. :| --Sky (t · c · w) 15:38, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Re : U made a comment on a page.

What was it exactly what you were on a bout?.only got really short message on my mail.was something about a image i put on the bronzebeard-eu page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vlammenzee (talk · contr).

Adminship, you can has it!

You've got some new tools to use, please take care of them. Feel free to ask any of us if you have any questions. Congratulations! --k_d3 19:50, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

Yay. Gratz man.--SWM2448 19:56, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
I humbly accept the tools which is given me and will handle them with care. I'm sure I'll have some questions in time and are quite certain they will be answered with talented instructions. Heh, I think your place should be the setting for the event. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:03, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
If you ever have questions in need of a quick (semi-quick) response and don't want to use the talk pages.. join us on the IRC. =) User:Coobra/Sig4 20:05, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
I will, when I find out how to get on. Been trying to, not really hard though, since I'd thought I could do that in due time. Hmm, the erm, red exclamation marks,...all others are potential dangers? I fill abit like the Scarlet Crusade. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:31, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
The edits with the exclamation are unpatrolled. That really doesn't mean much except that admins' and patrollers' (i.e., trusted users) edits are auto-patrolled so that narrows it down a bit. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 20:36, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Oh I see, thanks. Hmm, I'd best get on that IRC fairly soon. Smiley TherasTaneel (talk) 20:40, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Congratulations! When what I've seen you do a good job. IconSmall DrakeAzure Drazisil (t/c) 12:02, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Smiley As do you, I am somewhat impressed by the information you are able to find on the net and the ability to locate dead links here on the wiki. TherasTaneel (talk) 12:09, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

external links

Thanks for adding them for me, lol. I thought it did that on its own.

I'm wanting to make my page as cool as yours and probably everyone else on here, i've only made a basic one.

-Falcon (talk · contr)

ps I also want Mana Tap back :P

You're welcome. Hmm, that would be nice, but probably not possible.
Heh, thanks and dont worry userpages are usually created by many adjustments and corrections, yours will be just as cool as everybody else. Smiley
Lets hope they revive the tapping, nothing like the surge of fel energy. TherasTaneel (talk) 09:53, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

Titan-'f'orged

There's plenty more where that came from. I dunno if the original pages were misnamed, or if Blizz changed the name, but it's all capital F now... --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:01, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

Well, at some point in the future, misspellings will be just a bad dream. Hmm, that and changed names. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:04, April 30, 2010 (UTC)
I could wish that category changes happened with the wave of a wand, while you're at it... ;) --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:26, April 30, 2010 (UTC)
Sadly, walked into a Dead-magic zone with all my wands. Hmm, seems work best suited for a bot, but so are many things. I don't know a thing about bots, only programmed my calculator once, but it should be possible to make something "if quality=something" - "add Category:this and that". Although,... I was impressed at the speed of which you changed/added the categories. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:36, April 30, 2010 (UTC)
Only bot I have is my own wetware. I'm aware of AWB (I think those are the initials, but...), but it's not something I can run from this computer. As long as I concentrate on just changing the categories, double-click word selection, and "line select from end of one line to end of another" get most of the work done, thus my speed. I'm still certifiable, though. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:53, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

Images

Why do you change all the images I post almost directly? - Sharlah —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sharlah (talk · contr).

Unused Redirects

Afaik, mediawiki still doesn't track transclusions when seeing if redirects are in use. Many of the redirects you've deleted from my old userspace were actually still in use, as plenty of pages are still linking back to the old user space versions and being redirected to the new one -- namely templates. Np though, i'll updated what ones i catch over time, just letting you know. --   21:19, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Oh bah, sorry, thought it did and/or should. Good to know, erm, I think I'll keep to your sd's for now then. :) By the way, I have not scanned through your entire talkpages yet, but from what some of those places which was redirct linked, it seems you've thought up much of this wikia's, erm...interface, is that correct, of course not one mans job, sure, but still? TherasTaneel (talk) 21:29, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Cool, i'll help out and mark up any double/triple/redundent redirects i spot with sd's.
In my past yes. Much of it is outdated, and changes to mediawiki -- much of it courtesy of wikia -- has opened new doors. Things never really got anywhere though, and due to a number of incidents i decided the bad reactions i was recieving on a more and more frequent basis wasn't worth trying to help improve wiki anymore. I'm now very much removed from WoWWiki development and policy and only come to check info, correct info i was looking at, update the new info or simply revert stuff. Wish things could have been different, but nothing has really changed around her in the last few years. ;p --   21:43, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

Always on the recent updates list.

Every single time I go to WoWwiki.com, I see your name on the most recent page updates box on the left of the site. Although your constant sharing of information is very much appreciated, I can't help but wonder how You are able to edit so many things, every day, all day?! It's crazy. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fallingwaffl3z (talk · contr).

Dangerous Love

You *did* read my change notes on those quest chains, didn't you? --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:32, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Yes....*cough* of course I..didn't look at the history, ups, sorry. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:37, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Artorious and Co.

I was merging the "strategy" pages, which shouldn't have been separated. That's why one of them disappeared. --Sky (t · c) 05:39, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Licensing

I knew while I was doing that I'd get a comment from the image patroller. ;) I'll pay more attention next time. Hey, is there a way to see what images have no licences? IconSmall DrakeAzure Drazisil (t/c) 18:19, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

Images from books

What should the licence be for images such as File:Malfurionarchive.jpg? IconSmall DrakeAzure Drazisil (t/c) 15:06, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

{{Novel}}. And I've been wanting to do that for awhile now. User:Coobra/Sig4 16:35, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Thank You

Thank you for deleting my page. If you could delete like Talk Page too that would be great. Actually, anything on my profile thats deletable could you do that for me? I'd rather have as much space given back to WowWiki as possible, so delete whatever you can. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. --TeeSon5 (talk) 21:33, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, if you'd like. Hmm, as text take almost no space and unused images are deleted,...in time, I wouldn't worry about it. TherasTaneel (talk) 17:22, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Cataclysm Video

I don't know if this is the right spot to bring it up but, the video titled "World of Warcraft: Cataclysm zone changes" that's about 3:43 long seems like it's violating the DNP and NDA, but that's just me. Tanooki1432 (talk) 17:15, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

If it isn't Blizzard who have posted it in the first place, then it is and should be removed. TherasTaneel (talk) 17:20, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
It has been released by the fansites that were participating in the press event. Dunno if it's covered by the NDA, but feel free to remove it. Matix22 (talk) 19:08, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Naah, guess as Sandwichman2448 says, if Blizzard hosted the press event, they wanted it to get out. TherasTaneel (talk) 19:11, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Unconsolidated fanfic pages

Extremely short pages should be consolidated regardless of if they are fan fiction or not, ideally. As redirects are not allowed in the user namespace, the links to the former separate pages would have to be replaced with something like [[Consolidated page#Section that was once a page|Section name]], or be left dead. I, however, hate dead links. If a user is not maintaining their pages enough to fix the dead links themselves, I do not know what to do. The consolidator would be left to clean up, or just let the pages decay. If the pages will just decay, is it worth it to consolidate the seemingly abandoned user pages? There is no rule (that I recall, one may exist) that says that "abandoned" user pages should be deleted, even though some get deleted anyway. If there was a rule like that, few user pages would exist. It is not cruel to consolidate, but I have mixed feelings on just outright deleting them.--SWM2448 22:33, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

This user is long since gone. With his last contribute back in 2006. We currently have no policy stating a page must be maintained to remain undeleted... though if policy or such is wanted to be placed stating something along the lines of "user hasn't been active for so many years that all subpages should be deleted", then I'd say go ahead and discuss this on the forum. User:Coobra/Sig4 22:32, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Or something in between; "user hasn't been active for (5-10, too much?) years that all subpages should be deleted" and "fantic pages should contain This and That and a Couple of Those, to avoid this rule." + (don't create a page with a few lines which can as easily be described on the mainpage from which it would be linked). But it's a blurry thing. TherasTaneel (talk) 22:54, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Why do pages in userspace burn a hole in your psyche? AFAIK, user subpages are exempted from the "all subpages should be deleted" meme, since they are by nature required to BE subpages. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:15, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
I must confess that I can not remember why I wanted there to be rules about them. If it comes to mind, I will write it below. Furthermore, I was only a part of a couple who thought there should be rules ... obviously, since I didn't start the thread. TherasTaneel (talk) 22:42, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

Naming Images

Can you please tell me why it is so important to rename all files with space, proper case and no apostrophes? I'm not trying to insult you because I appreciate all the hard work but it all seems a little trivial and very anal retentive, not to mention an easy way to increase your edit score. Korval (talk) 10:18, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

"I'm only anal 78.36% of the time." Because it's easier to find them with their proper names and I like things in their proper place. The edit score is just a bad side effect. Smiley TherasTaneel (talk) 10:26, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
It is part of the image policy too. TherasTaneel (talk) 10:38, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
I'm at an impasse. I only have so many hours in the day. I try my best to follow available Wiki templates but honestly this is where I draw the line. I'm more than happy to defer files renaming to you as you see fit. To the point, I don't know how long beta will last. I really don't want to spend my time making sure something as trivial as file names are "correctly" named (and as far as I’m concerned it is a trivial matter). So here’s my trade offer. I'll continue to post new Cataclysm information using the available wiki templates and you can continue to edit the file name as you see fit. If this cooperation isn't optimum then I'll just pass. I couldn't care less if I add information about Cataclysm to this site. I do it out of a courtesy to the WOW fan base. I also don’t care about edit points. Don't get me wrong they’re nice but they are not the reason I post information. Korval (talk) 18:28, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
The arrangement have worked fine so far. If I don't renamed them, someone else will. Continue your work. TherasTaneel (talk) 18:33, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! :) Korval (talk) 18:35, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

User:TherasTaneel/Mulgris

Looks broken. Is that the template, or because I'm on the beta skin? -=- IconSmall DrakeAzure Drazisil [t/c] 03:27, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

Mmm, I made the page before the character had reached level 10; before it is shown on Armory, that is why it appeared broken. TherasTaneel (talk) 14:31, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

WoWWiki move

Hey, just wanted to let you know we are moving to http://www.wowpedia.org. Feel free to join us! The wiki will also remain available on Wikia if you prefer to edit here. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 15:36, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, it would have taken me some time figuring out there were a change about, or well, there had been one anyway. I'd prefere to move as I find this interface rather messy. TherasTaneel (talk) 21:07, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
