Vigilance data

howdy O: im new to this whole wiki editing thing, but i added some new vigilance data and wondered if anyone would help tidy it up ~ StealthFire

Horror!

the horror (of the children)! i love it. it doesn't look at all threatening, but it seems to have a perplexed expression on its face. as if to say, "awwww shucks, i went to be with 2 arms and NOW i have 8? dammit". i'm going to collect a bunch of loleil pictures and make redonkulous tags out of them - like in wowwiki. -- tierrie talk contr 20:12, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

Vandals x2

Shapeshifter. Take a look at history. There were two of them, I think. Quite a conspiracy, huh? IN 20:53, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

208.233.32.44 has a history of productive edits, and that user did remove the vandalism in the page, but missed the category so I'll give that editor the benefit of the doubt. However it's pretty clear 88.107.135.255 was nothing but a vandal and has now been blocked. Thanks again, we'll catch all those vandals yet! Friendship smallLoleil Talk 21:41, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, no problem. I saw that ominous SHITTTTTTTTTTTT in 208.233.32.44's version of the article, and that's what made me jump to the conclusion, I guess :) IN 23:35, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Can you make a Justice article, please?

He's a confirmed companion now. I'm really bad at this kind of activity, took me a lot of time to get those pre-order DLC item articles right :( http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/127/index/1672815 IN 23:43, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Done! Though I watched the trailer with the sound off so I didn't get too spoiled ;). Friendship smallLoleil Talk 00:00, March 12, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. No major spoilers there, anyway. Everyone on the BioWare forums seems to love Justice madly, since his armor is colored black, and he looks so mean and vengeful. Talking about a success formula :) Personally, I'm looking forward for that Nathaniel Howe guy, since his storyline will probably be the most interesting one. Oh, and from the practical point of view: he's an archer. People are reacting quite inadequately to him being a companion, though: "I'll reload a game 100 times just to kill him brutally over and over and over again!", and so on. I'm not exaggerating! :) IN 00:10, March 12, 2010 (UTC)
The undead always seem to go down well as objects of fandom don't they? Poor Nathaniel though, I had a look at the forums and was a little surprised by the vehemence directed towards him, but I guess it's good that people are getting into their roleplaying! I'm looking forward to getting to know more about all the companions. Except Oghren Tonguesmiley. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 00:50, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

I am a little sad that there will be no romance in it though. I enjoyed it when alistair would flirt. It was amusing lol I got him to love me on the Orgins hoping it would carry over, but I'm not to sure if it will.

I'm expecting that past romances will be mentioned, even if they're developed, and if not I'm sure some enterprising modder will solve the problem ;). Friendship smallLoleil Talk 22:59, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Is there anything you tell me about editing the Wiki.

Firstly, don't forget to sign talk pages and forum messages with four tildes (~~~~). For some more general editing tips,Help:Getting Started and Help:Beyond the basics give a good introduction to wiki editing. The Dragon Age Wiki:Editing Guidelines and the Dragon Age Wiki:Manual of Style might be worth checking out too. Hope that helps Smiley. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 22:59, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Problem with the talk page for Flanking and backstabbing

Caused by myself I'm afraid. I was editing Talk:Flanking and Backstabbing and uploading new images for Flanking and Backstabbing at the same time. My browser kept showing the same old images instead of the new ones so I cleared the cache, which helped with the pictures, but crashed the editing session :-( This was about six hours ago I guess, and it is still not possible (at least not for me) to edit the talk page. It seems like my crashed session is still locking the page. I'm hoping that it will fix itself magically with some regular database clean-up maintenance, but maybe there is some other way to release the lock? Boise66 18:33, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

Ah, never mind. I switched to Firefox and now it seems ok :-) Thanks anyway! --Boise66 18:54, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
Pics can sometimes take a while to fix themselves, but I'm glad you didn't have to wait too long Smiley. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 00:16, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Nathaniel Howe

On the page about him it says that he is the character in the 2nd penny arcade comic, is this true? I'm not so sure. My reasons for being so are described on the note on his page. Warden Of The Dales 23:57, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure either. As the main character is unnamed it is undoubtedly speculation, but the fact that he expresses sympathy for the Howe plight as well as the writer of the comic saying "It's about a character who's still locked on the info page, but he'll be available soon enough" is some evidence that it is Nathaniel Howe. However, I don't think we have enough to put it on the page, so I'll alter the page until we know one way or another. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 00:16, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
Loleil, ma chère, take a closer look here, please. Notice the resemblance? ;) And Prima Guide is very positive about Nathaniel Howe as a companion: http://www.primagames.com/guides/display.php?isbn=9780307468352&tab=details Ah, anyway, we are getting an official update today, so it's really not that important. IN 03:00, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
I definitely think Nathaniel is a companion and am 90% sure that he's in the comic too, but a couple of people have complained that there is no concrete evidence about the comic so I thought I'd err on the side of caution. Like you said, not a big deal at this stage, but I'll be looking forward to that update! Friendship smallLoleil Talk 06:03, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

It's high time to block that wookie-lover's IP address. IN 17:39, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

i just got a +5 approval from oghren for the painted skyball found in the brecelian forest.....````

Heh, guess you're wrong

"By the time this is finished DA:2 will be out"


DA:Origins is only the begining!

Wait, how I am I wrong? DA:2 is not out yet ;) Friendship smallLoleil Talk 09:45, March 16, 2010 (UTC)


It won't be finished untill all subsequent games are out, but I understand why you were confused <--- being unclear ;P

Ah think I got ya now. I been thinking I might have to change my list to something more achievable so I can actually cross something off! Friendship smallLoleil Talk 09:54, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

DA:O-Awakenings

Are we gonna go a NEW wiki for Awakenings or a new section or just continue to expand on the current wiki? Ive started a few characters now and have a ton of info to post about it. Let us know :D --- J

Well, I can answer this question as well. No new Wiki. There is already some DAA material at this Wiki. Moreover, since DAA is an expansion pack, not a different game, it would be really weird to take the other route :) IN 18:17, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
I'd also vote for not having a new wiki. Essentially all the skill data from DAO still applies, and since most items can transfer over, so does that. I'd suggest just adding relevant sections to pages similar to what one would do for the DLC. As IN pointed out, at least some of the new info has been entered already. Tivadar 18:26, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
To echo what IN and Tivadar have said, this is intended to be the Dragon Age Wiki, not just the Dragon Age: Origins Wiki, so definitely start your Awakening pages here. Also, I just saw we got a mention in the 1up review. Yay! Friendship smallLoleil Talk 01:41, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

question about kolgrim

you have that on the pc version he drops a horn to call the high dragon but on the ps3 console version he drops a hammer for a gong i was wondering if you are going to put that in for people who are playing on ps3 consoles

Done. If you see any other information that differs between consoles please add it in. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 01:56, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Description

Hi Loleil. I noticed that the wiki didn't have a customized MediaWiki:Description, which provides metadata information, so I just edited it. Feel free to tweak it as you see fit. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 16:34, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
