German Wiki[edit]

Hi Gahoo, long time no see. I hope you are fine. I wanted to start working on the German version quite early to add some articles but I can't edit, add or do anything else on the German bit. Can you help me? Thanks in advance. --Shaari 14:54, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


Thanks Gahoo, I forgot there was a DESC for the Templates.Midgardzolom 13:51, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Template Designs[edit]

Hey, Gahoo. I see you've coded up a bunch of templates, and things are starting to get populated. Would you mind if I had a play with the infobox templates? I've already had a go at cleaning up the Recipe template, and would like to have a go at making things sit a bit better (and make things a bit easier on the eyes when these pages start filling up with lots of text).--Anthoron T/ C 12:09, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

I threw together a few examples of what I'm thinking of. You'll need to copy my User:Anthoron/monobook.css into yours to see some elements, and temporarily switch your skin to monobook (the eorzeapedia2 skin has some weird global spacing that I can't seem to override in user CSS, so some things crunch together badly---things are slightly larger in monobook, but it looks a bit better at the moment).

I dropped the background colours to avoid a colour overload and bad colour combinations (blue on blue, red on green, etc.); it also lets us use colour to highlight or emphasise certain elements or sections to help people quickly find useful bits of information, rather than just a wash.
I re-arranged the item page a bit to show and emphasise the most pertinent elements first (requirements, stats, and appearance), and utilise the full width of the page. We can probably use DPL for most of the 'Acquisition' section, like you're already doing for recipes.
Let me know what you think! --Anthoron T/ C 13:34, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Any word on this? I'd be good to get something going---or at least a refactor of the item template---before the open beta.--Anthoron T/ C 23:48, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Sure thing. My other concern with the templates was the size and scope of some of them. The item template especially, is already pretty hairy; and as the game develops, it'll require (1) continual modifications for new attributes that will propagate to thousands of pages, and (2) special-cases for certain groups, making it extremely complex and difficult to maintain. What about splitting some of the templates up into more piecemeal sections---something like this---where all of the information is still contained within template parameters, but the individual templates are much simpler?

I think it would be preferable to make this type of change before the wiki starts to become heavily populated. However, the existing templates make this a bit hard to do because of the wrapping tables---which is why I suggested a design shift, rather than just splitting things up; but I do understand your point about wanting to get things in and organised before re-thinking what things look like.

As for the box and stamina bars, I'll check them in the default skin and get back to you. They should just work with my CSS pulled into MediaWiki:Common.css.--Anthoron T/ C 02:55, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

You'll need to pull it again, I made some changes.
It'd also be nice if you could get rid of these rules from the eorzeapedia2 skin:
  • * {margin:0;padding:0}
  • The "line-height: 1.5em" rules in main.css (or, apply them globally)
  • The fixed-width stuff.

User talk:Gahoo/sandbox23[edit]

I noticed this when finding it in the quest category. I am not really sure the side-by-side journal/walkthrough design is a good idea (not that it hadn't suggested itself to me when I saw how long the quest pages get).

The main issue (which we probably should address before too long) is that many of our readers will probably want the walkthrough portion hidden in some fashion. I have seen wiki designs where spoilers are hidden and only display when an image is clicked on (I am afraid they weren't ones I worked on, so I don't have URLs).

Unfortunately, even the journal log section contains a bunch of spoilers, but at least not the answers to the puzzles (I hope). --Swordmage 07:26, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Recipes/Phased Out[edit]

Nice work man, but somehow, pages are falling through the cracks. Some pages like Undyed Velveteen aren't showing up on category:Weaving Recipes/Levels 21-30 --Lordshadow 14:42, 17 May 2012 (CDT)

Further addendum: Category:Goldsmithing Recipes/Levels 51-60. One. Item. --Lordshadow 15:43, 17 May 2012 (CDT)

Explained on IRC. --Charitwo 16:46, 17 May 2012 (CDT)
And fixed. --Charitwo 19:28, 17 May 2012 (CDT)

Loremquote v.3[edit]

<sfx of aluminum cans knocking together and papers rustling as Anwyll enters the talk page>

Apologies for the unresponsiveness; was hitting the [DINNER] button. Thank you very much for puzzleboxing loremquote (again), I'll fiddle around with it for a bit and whip up a new <pre> demo and such. Now that I know how the include tags work, I'm gonna start doing those for all the oft-used ones I come across. Just wanted to make sure the deserved gratitude found its way in your direction. Have a good one! — Anwyll (talk) 18:43, 14 January 2013 (CST)

Spotted Mudpuppy[edit]

For some reason Spotted Mudpuppy isn't displaying its quest. --Lordshadow (talk) 02:00, 3 September 2013 (CDT)

Who can I chat with about adding new items to the wiki[edit]

I'd love to be able to create tabs that when clicked would change data.
example: Layout Elements - Tab view
What this could be used for is Leve list. Putting each category into a tab.

Also I know that mouseover tooltips can be done on a wiki. has done this very well. This would help everyone with the ability to just hover over links to see small details or full details.

Jetah (talk) 21:54, 26 September 2013 (CDT)

Over on the Neverwinter wiki they used a subpage, /tooltip, that would house the tooltip display. the mouseover recalled this page to display. You'd have to look at the code, I couldn't even begin to tell you how to code it all.

Can a new entry for leves be added for the 200% bonus to exp and gil? Also I've noticed that there are different gil rewards. the first time they give quite a bit more. 2 and 3 are reduced amounts and 4+ seems to be the base amount.

Could the Item involved in Leves be included in the Category:Tradecraft_Levequest list? I'm building a spreadsheet now, however, if this could easily be added to the list it would be easier.

Item Template Needs[edit]

Item template needs a |Recast HQ = Apparently that can change with HQ. Lordshadow (talk) 21:19, 10 October 2013 (CDT)

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday[edit]

I got too tied up with the new Batman game so didn't have the time to copy/paste all the new info for all of the fishable items D: Thanks for doing that for me and not leaving the site broken because of my lazyness! Hezkezl (talk) 04:05, 27 October 2013 (CDT)

Trial & Dungeon Needs[edit]

So I've just gone and added | Minimum Average Item Level = to all the trial and dungeon pages that had a required average item level. --Lordshadow (talk) 18:20, 14 December 2013 (CST)

Check in on the forums please![edit]

I added a couple things in my gigantic thread that I could use some input on please :D Thanks! Hezkezl (talk) 06:27, 15 December 2013 (CST)
