Hi, welcome to the Dragon Age Wiki! Thanks for joining! I hope that you will stick around and continue to help us improve the wiki. Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Loleil (Talk) 08:11, 17 September 2010

A silly question

How does one remove categories? I am either doing something wrong or do not have sufficient rights. Thank you in advance for your response) Asherinka (talk) 21:45, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

I simply remove the [[Category:Category name]] tag at the end of the article. However, I believe you can only do what while working on Monobook skin (which I use by default), since Wikia's new look helpfully filters the Category tags out of articles.
EDIT: Or, if you mean removing category pages: you need sysop privileges to delete any kind of pages. --Koveras Alvane (talk) 07:31, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

Leliana Page LS Spoilers Tag

Thank you for adding the proper spoiler tag for Leliana's Song events. I couldn't remember how to get that to display when I was adding a pic to the section. Thank you! :) --WardenWade (talk) 20:51, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome. For the record, you can look in the history of the page to find the old revision and see which spoiler tag was used before you edited it. :) --Koveras Alvane (talk) 07:48, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Leliana Page Correction

Thank're right! I thought I cleaned up the "px" on her page but must have forgotten it when I was working on it. I didn't mean to leave it and I apologize for the bother. Thanks for the check up! :) --WardenWade

No problem. If you make multiple edits, you should check the page history and compare your final revision to the last revision before you started editing, so you can see all the changes you've made at a glance. Also, don't forget to sign your messages on talk pages. ;) --Koveras Alvane (talk) 07:52, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I appreciate the advice...I've been on the wiki for a while but normally don't make a lot of (big) changes and I often do forget to check the history. I'll make a point to check it from now on, and I apologize for not signing previously, too...thank you for your advice and patience, Koveras Alvane :) --WardenWade (talk) 21:26, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Discussing vs. fixing

'Don't discuss it, fix it'. Keep your opinions to yourself. That was my contribution. Sorry you didn't see it before with your thousands of contributions.

First of all, that is not "my opinion", but a part of this wiki's editing guidelines ("Be bold"): if you see a false statement in an article, don't point out the error, just correct it. The problem with your edit wasn't its intent but its form: instead of correcting the false statement, you appended another statement to it that points out its falsehood in addition to providing a truer statement. This created unnecessary redundancy in the article and effectively turned it into a content discussion. A better way would have been to correct the first statement to better reflect Leliana's actual behavior in that scene--essentially what I did in that edit whose comment so infuriated you. :) --Koveras Alvane (talk) 07:09, March 15, 2013 (UTC)

About Ages

Hey! I'm wondering if you are able to use the EasyTimeline extension, cause otherwise we'll need to wait for Tierrie. Furthermore, each Age (with the exception of the Divine Age) starts at :0 and ends in :99. Viktoria Landers 10:44, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

The big problem with EasyTimeline is that it is optimized for the Gregorian calender, i.e. it works best with real life dates and timelines. For fictional timelines with their own calendar counting and formatting rules, I guess it can be hacked to at least seem like it depicts the Ages correctly, but I am not sure it's worth the effort in the long run. --Koveras Alvane (talk) 18:40, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
What about a table - slider? That way we can use all 3 timelines while the default one would be the Chantry Calendar. Viktoria Landers 11:21, June 19, 2013 (UTC)
What do you mean by "table - slider"? --Koveras Alvane (talk) 15:14, June 19, 2013 (UTC)

Timeline Converter

I see you keep yourself busy with a new converter. That's awesome! If you're interested, before you finish it, you can send it over here in order to give you some feedback. Cheers! Viktoria Landers 14:05, June 22, 2013 (UTC)

Well, yeah, I am not sure I'm making what you think I'm making, but hey, maybe it'll still be useful. ^^ --Koveras Alvane (talk) 14:07, June 22, 2013 (UTC)
There is a slight numerical issue with the converter. 1FA in the converter produces -6404 TE which should be -6405 instead. (see pg.23 of WoT) Viktoria Landers 11:15, August 9, 2013 (UTC)
-6404 TE is what the table at Timeline#Timeline converter says. If that is incorrect, the entire timeline calculation needs to be recalibrated. --Koveras Alvane (talk) 23:19, August 9, 2013 (UTC)
This is a mistake in WoT. 1FA = -6405TE and 3000FA = -3405TE would mean that 2999 = 3000. – mostlyautumntalkcontribs • 23:29, August 9, 2013 (UTC)
Nice catch. They probably meant 0 FA instead of 1. I'm gonna put a note about it. Viktoria Landers 23:51, August 9, 2013 (UTC)
In other words, I will not modify my converter because I'd only end up with two "1 FAs". --Koveras Alvane (talk) 07:23, August 10, 2013 (UTC)
