Thanks for doing SS Logs![edit]

Seeing you add some of them finally motivated me to do a mass creation of all the ones I had laying around on my hard drive, which had been sitting there since launch :D So thank you very much for your work on them! Going to upload all the missing images now, so please feel free to go through and make them more complete :) Love your walkthroughs that you've done on them so far!

No problem! I noticed that a lot of them were missing, and I like this site the best so I started adding them. Thanks for the pictures! Right now I'm just editing them to add walkthroughs and putting on Locations (including making location pages that are missing) and making all the coordinates uniform (Some had X##-Y##, some ##-##, some X## Y##, some ## ##... with 4 different ways of putting them up there, it was less reader-friendly, so I'm making them all the same while I'm at it). I also dont have a screenshot app on my PC, so adding the pics is definitely a great help!

That's exactly how I got started on this site, a few years ago! :D noticed that we were missing a bunch of FATE info from Northern Thanalan, so I spent a whole night documenting everything and started adding them. Definitely some super friendly people who work here, and they helped me every step of the way to understand wiki code and dpl (a different sort of language that Mediawiki uses to help 'list' pages.. can do some amazing stuff with it!)

Yea, those coordinates are a bit off >< I started at the bottom and worked my way upwards, since I noticed you were going from the top down and didn't want to step on your toes too much. Got halfway through before I realized the coordinates were different D: 99% of the coordinates we use are ##-##.. but for SS Logs we use X##-Y## to make it a little easier to sort the columns..

I just use Paint for editing 99% of the screenshots I ever use :D But for anything that is an icon or picture which is directly in the game, we usually take it directly from the dats themselves using some of the fan-made programs :) Or the Lodestone, if it's a weapon/armor/item icon.. By the way, you can 'sign' your messages on people's talk pages by doing 4 tildes (~) in a row. It automatically substitutes your right name/time of day/etc :D Hezkezl (talk) 16:15, 27 July 2015 (CDT)
