Location Help

Forum:Locations_Icons#Locations - Can you help me with your admin powers :)  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 09:43, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Fascinating facts

Interesting indeed. I think I'll change all the links in my doc next time I edit it to point to Project:Blah - it looks much neater. And I'll start up Project_talk pages too, just because I can (well, because it might be useful, too). It's also good we have a list of videos (why someone uploaded Video:Oskar Schindler- What is Power is a mystery to me). I've had it in the back of my mind for a little while that perhaps I ought to take a look at uploaded vids a view to (1) checking they really are what they purport to be, in case no other admin has had time to and, (2) thinking about whether we need a video policy to sit alongside the image policy. Maybe one day I'll do that - but it would probably be as part of the front page random media thingy as you mention, and I think Awakenings trailers are likely to keep us happy there for a while yet!

RE: Project Bodahn / Merchants

Question: on the templates, if the item has a # x2-x99, should it have a column or be mentioned with the item name. Suggestion: align prices 'right' not 'left' like in game easy to read (Please :D). Concern: Cost Ratio, how will that be managed? If my question/concern are address, I will start taking this baby on, if I have issues with the toolset, I might need your assistance. But if you like immediately I can start changing over my current merchant lists to the new template.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:48, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Also suggestions more room for the item name less for the prices, it looks to cramped for a small computer screen and the prices have too much room on widescreen.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:54, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, gotcha, your right this is different. Ok, when you work out the bugs lemme know, so I know that I got the idea and can use it properly. Credit, hell no, I am helping on a project that several users have put effort into I won't claim any credit for it unless everyone else is too including you :).  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 21:07, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Also, when an item doesn't cost 1DAO goldpiece trans or more can we not have a 0DAO goldpiece trans it looks bad, and the symbol is associated with it costing gold, but that might be one of your bugs your are working out.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 21:28, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Looks good a lot of things to go through, like all the items miss priced (if I was doing this project I'd prolly go through all items price check style first off), # of items (limited and 2+) and Cost Ratio (this can always be fixed with a disclaimer). Besides that I am happy to help if you need me, I like helping :)  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 23:11, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Cool, I might take me to later tonight or tomorrow to finish for the merchants mark up and down updates, I have family visiting for the Olympics, so computer time is unpredictable but I can certainly start :). One more suggestion tho, can value be hidden from the transformers? this may discourage people from changing the values to cost and I see no point seeing the value of 0DAO bronzepiece trans to 99DAO silverpiece trans (which is the value of most items) on infoboxes for the items and looks messy for items that aren't weapons/armor.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 23:33, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, values hidden on infoboxes on the articles, and yes that sounds good.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 23:52, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Quartermaster has 2 mark ups 115% and 200% (other goods), I am not sure what to do about that.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 00:20, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
k, and I believe it is pre and post joining not wilds/ unless you weren't being specific. Also what about # of items that the merchant has? or is that a work in progress too?  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 00:55, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and recipes aren't working.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 01:03, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Nice, thanks, ya I added the merchantrow to the recipetransformer and wondered why it was still not working :P  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 03:33, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, when I finished Barlin, Trap Trigger was the only one that didn't work and the value is there, and everything looks right... maybe I can't see the forest for the trees. Can you double check this for me? please :)  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 05:31, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
FYI, Bodahn has 1.10 (unlike his usual 1.5) mark up on his Inventory (final battle), which is all new items too. So he'll be like the Quartermaster.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 06:10, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
I'll do the Item Cat for all items, I need to change all my giftstransformer to itemtransformer because it was created originally to not have the extra fields (mainly values) showing but now that goes against Project Bodahn so I have to anyways. Why stop there right? So, ya I'll manually input the category Items to each item.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 06:23, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
eeekk! I can't get that Bodahn and Bodahn(redcliffe) to work on the same page help! Its all 0DAO bronzepiece transs lol  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 08:18, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Double Check

Hey Tierrie Hollowness just wanted me to check whether this directive

"Items included with ItemTransformer will show up as 0 DAO bronzepiece trans. This is a bug because Template:ItemTransformer inherits Template:ItemInfoBox which includes [[Category:Item]]. Someone's gonna have to go in and manually insert Category:Item to the items so I can finally remove it from the InfoBox -- tierrie talk contr 06:16, February 5, 2010 (UTC)"

included armour and weapons, given the trouble of getting them not to be items I'd assumed that it did not, but I figure there's no harm in making absolutely sure. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 08:15, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Quest Page

Would like to do a new layout on the quest page. What do you think? User:Polexian/Sandbox Polexian ♦♦Talk♦♦ ♠♠Leave Message♠♠ 03:58, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Total armor for armor sets

So ... Legendary Items. Your forum topic reminded me I'd been thinking of adding the best mage gloves (Black Hand Gauntlets, Cinderfel Gauntlets, Ashen Gloves, Silk Weave Gloves and whatever the electrical ones are - can't quite remember off the top of my head.) I thought I'd stick them as suggestions on Talk:Legendary Items first, but when I looked at that I saw a comment from PhilV that made me think I needed to talk to you first. I think the page layout has changed since he left the comment, so these are my questions inspired by him, rather than his questions exactly.

  • I think it would be useful to have total armor and fatigue for armor sets. It would be easy enough to manually add up the armor and fatigue values for the constituent items and enter these into the infoboxes. (I'm assuming that simple addition of the base item values would give us the values we want? Any additional armor and fatigue bonuses already appear in the enahncements column.) But not having thought deeply about equipment, I thought I'd best check there's not a glaring flaw with this idea, and that there wasn't some cunning template thing that can be done/you were planning to calculate the totals from the infoboxes of the individual items.
  • PhilV is also quite right that items of different types are mixed together, eg the Light Armor section has a chestpiece, gloves and boots. I'm not sure this matters: it's obvious from many items' names what they are, and if it's not then users can click through to the item page to find out. Do you agree, or do you think this is an issue that needs to be addressed?

Many thanks for your thoughts, O Juggernaut master! Zoev talk 13:25, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Dotted lines are the images that are throwing off table.. Solid lines are the ones that are messed up because of the dotted lines.

RE: Project Bodahn / Merchants (Part II)

Bump in the road, when getting to Mikhael Dryden he actually sells armor by tier 5-7 (ie Studded Helmet(Drakeskin), Studded Helmet(Inscribed) and Studded Helmet(Reinforced)), unlike the rest of the merchants where the tier levels with you. I am not sure how we are going to work out cost ratio and now sold by tier but I'd thought I let you know. I mean it be scary to input each piece of equipment by tier, it be like x7 of all current weapons and armor, eewww.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 17:15, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Merchants all have Inventory now. Still lots of incorrect values (I see sell back values, cost values etc.), cost ratio for tiers needs to be figured out, the Mikhael Dryden thing (above), the 2 different prices for backpacks needs a solution and I think all specialization manuals have a set price no matter the mark up or down, and # of items (ie x2 - x99) I think need to be added to the merchant lists. Besides that we are good, let me know what you want me to do next about this, I don't know if these issues want to be run-through with the other admins or not first.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 00:46, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

No worries, i am away atm too. I am leaving this message on a shiiiit computer this message took five minutes to write, I want to cry , LOL. But I;ll be home latertoday.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 00:16, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Super cool, I'll try to start that tonight :D  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 02:53, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
OH, little hiccup pages like Alarith got squished on regular screen mode, honestly I left out the header quantity, it should be a nobrainer and the character are no more than 3 (ie. x99), and I think that should fix that problem.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 03:45, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Have you had a chance to look into this? I'd do it my self but I don't want to mess with your template :P  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:03, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry , ok if you lets say have a non wide screen and open merchant lists that falls beside the charactertransformer, the prices get so squished it is like this:

76
DAO silverpiece trans
31
DAO bronzepiece trans

Before it didn't do that and on wide or non wide view it looked fine, I was thinking it is because of the length of the Quantity header, maybe if you reduce the column size, remove the header or minimize it (ie. Qty), it will be corrected. Just pretend you are looking at the Alarith on a small screen and minimize your window to an approx size you shoudl see the issue. [Edit: just to clarify widescreen it looks fine, only on small screen it gibs up]  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:16, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
I know I am not the most coherent individual, it probably because I learned one language in school till grade 5, changed schools and learn the at home language, it still holds me back in writing skills. So never feel restraint to ask me, as Ricki Ricardo would say to Lucy: 'Splain'! :P  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:23, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
That just forces to past the charactertransformer and I thought it looked good beside it when it was applicable or more, 'a less 100% width table' and left 'a little more narrower'. I feel the Quantity column is too wide, for wide or non wide screen, the rest of the columns seem fine for width. But if this is your intension and you are happy with it, I guess, I really can't go against that, I mean your the boss, boss.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:30, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Hhmmm, header didn't make any difference, it must just be the column width it self. Meh, I just like saying boss, not really as in your the wiki overlord or anything, just playing :P  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:41, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Wouldn't it be more convenient to have the Merchants name on the availability list, or is that a new can of worms?  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:44, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Haha, we said that nearly at the same time. :P  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:45, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Forgive it not aligning but I am thinking more like this.

Name Qty Buy Price Sell price
Flask
Rgt ico flask Flask x99
1DAO silverpiece trans 50DAO bronzepiece trans

or

Name Buy Price Sell price
Flask
Rgt ico flask Flask x99
1DAO silverpiece trans 50DAO bronzepiece trans

What do you think?  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 20:54, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, will do , btw I added the quantities to the all the Merchants.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 23:18, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, the changes I made fixes it for me but make sure it is still to your liking cause we can always revert it back.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 23:29, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Wade's Armor

"The acquisition method of getting Wade's armor is available at Wade. Instead of putting it in 8 different locations (4 weight classes x normal/superior versions), it would be better if you made a link to Wade instead?"


I had thought of that, but one key thing that I remembered when I was looking for information on this wiki was that I wanted the info on the page of that item, not have to go through 2-3 pages before I had what I needed. I decided to put the acquisition info on all the pages because it wasn't too long, it made the page look complete, and it was a lot simpler for the end user to look there instead of having to scroll down all of Wade's considerable page.

Template page

I think I have vague memories of reading it in the distant past. Looking at it now it looks very handy indeed, all it's really missing is info on the new spoilers. I'll see if I can update the welcome message to send people there. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 01:36, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

Note: [Edit:disregard the template change, these templates, though I had straight uses for them before, after this ordeal I a putting them on the back burner and I'll present them on a later date. They are still causing issues and I don't want issues anymore, so I am waiting till this all blows over.]
Polexian, you have changed multiple of my templates without permission( Which you changed without knowing the true purpose of the templates and basically asking th same thing which was mine to ask.), made plans for my templates without my permission and now bashing me to the admins. All I said to you was please don't volunteer changes of other peoples templates with out asking what they are doing with them and to hold off on admin approval before you start making changes to templates that are or going to be widely used on the wiki, I don't think that warrents for this insult. I am so upset I can believe you went over my head and now behind my back. All I ever have done for this wiki was to improve it and now you make me feel like shit because I asked many times to please respect other users and wait on admins for certain template changes. I am really really upset, I don't think I deserved this.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 22:46, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Ya, I am holding off, and yes that is right neutral isn't accounted for. And OMG THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK DON'T LEAVE ME EVER AGAIN!!.... eeerr, I mean welcome back, I didn't miss you or anything, I mean I noticed you were gone.

Well, hopefully resolved, I know I felt soo bad asking for Loleil to help, I held off for days on it then folded, she is so nice. Glad you had a nice Vday weekend, mine I guess is on hold with the Olympics and family staying with me cause they are volunteering the bf hasn't been around (but I got the mushy mush texts and messages Tonguesmiley) and I am making him make up for it when the Olympics and family are gone, lol.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 22:58, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Logging in/out

I cannot help but notice that this wiki constantly kicks me out after I'm afk for a while, is this suppose to happen? I would normally go afk while on [My Home] page, and the next time I come back and Refresh the page, I'm logged out. =/

Ostagar/Return to Ostagar

Loleil basically gave me the ok, I feel it is a sub page to Ostagar, maybe express your concerns on the forums so we can all look at it cause I am in the process of redoing the location articles according to those guidelines of Loleil's and mine and it seemed to be approved. Condensing and child pages is what the intention was so maybe we should discuss more on the forums Forum:Locations: Icons, infoboxes and stuff#Update, cause I haven't gotten to the rest of the sub-locations/states and merges yet, you might want to get your p's and q's in.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 22:49, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

I'm back

I just thought I owed you an apology for not having been around much in the last week, so ... sorry! I'm back now and will try to check in at least daily. I've a fair bit of catching up to do, though, and will slowly slog through it over the next few days once I've completed documentation of Project Genitivi. But if you think there's anything urgent I should be looking at, then please do give me a shout. Zoev talk 14:24, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

ItemInfoBox

Tierrie, your infobox change caused all items to have Tiers so Plot Items and Gifts (or any item on the item trasnformer) now have tiers : / I don't want to mess the infobox to fix it, unless you want me to.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 01:47, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and items that have materials listed as Varies are broken too. [[Materials|(Varies Tier 1-7) (Tier )]], ie Splintmail.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 03:38, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Nice looks like ya got it, :D much better.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 04:49, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, i c cool :)  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 05:06, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Custom font

As you probably know, a font used on a website will only be displayed in a person's browser if the person has that font installed on their computer. Since a font is not one of the supported file types that can be uploaded to the wiki, assuming you have the font, you'll have to upload it off site. Then, in order for visitors to see the font where it's being used, they'll need to download it and install it. If/when you use the custom font for certain parts of the wiki, you'll want to specify a common default font as well, to ensure that people will still see the text if they don't have the custom font installed. Here's an example:

<div style="font-family: AdLib, Verdana">Custom font text.</div>

In this case, the browser would attempt to display the text using the AdLib font, but if it is not installed on the person's computer, the browser will attempt to display it using the next font listed, which is Verdana, a common default font. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 05:24, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

I knew about @font-face, but again, that requires uploading the font to the wiki, and fonts are not one of the uploadable file types. I don't have direct server level access, so I would recommend you use the Contact form to make your special request. Someone from the Community Team will respond, and they should be able to find out if this is doable. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 18:05, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Something you said before

I didn't think I needed it at the time but now I have run into a situation I need it (it has to do with redirect pages where I usually do not have a problem with, this is the first, might be the only, not sure, might be needed for a couple more, I'd have to see when I get there).

Ico Hut Dalish Camp, I need it to be Brecilian Outskirts
Ico Hut Dalish Camp, This needs to stay as is (Dalish Camp).

{{:Brecilian Outskirts|style=iconmini|text=Brecilian Outskirts}} or {{:Brecilian Outskirts|style=iconmini|link=Dalish Camp}}

I just don't know how to do the adjustments without having to adjust everywhere I have used the template. It will be a less popular option but to have it is needed for at least a few articles, now that I have come to that bridge. Any help ya can give me will be most appreciated.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 07:01, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

OH!, and alternate icon too.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 07:01, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Or will I need an alternate template that aren't based on the same principles of the current?  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 07:11, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Cool, thanks no rush.  Hollowness | Talk | Contr 08:44, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
