Articles Edit

Hey there! It's best to wait on creating articles until you have enough info to actual warrant them. Creating an article and just putting "researching" isn't of much benefit to the wiki and will likely wind up in them being nominated for deletion. I'd suggest researching first and then creating the articles with the relevent info. Also, make sure you check out DA:NOTABLE to make sure the character articles you create are notable enough. Thanks! --Kelcat Talk 00:57, March 2, 2015 (UTC)

Images Edit

Hi and thanks for your recent image uploads. There are some lovely pictures there! I just wanted to make sure you're aware of a couple of our image guidelines. Mainly, that "There should not be multiple images to prove the same point.", so all images should provide a unique point of view, and that if articles can't be used in the body of an article they should be put in a gallery. Please let me know if you have any questions. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 21:04, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

Alright. Sorry for slopping up articles. I've got my game open and mid-edit I just got sidetracked and went to go kill a dragon. WhisperingElf (talk) 21:35, March 31, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf
I have to say I'm super-jealous of you guys who have this on the PC. The images y'all are uploading are gorgeous! --Kelcat Talk 22:21, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
No need to apologise, you're doing great work! And you should be jealous Kelcat, PC gaming is awesome Icon wink Friendship smallLoleil Talk 22:44, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
it's not hard to take nice pictures when the game is just so breathtakingly beautiful :). Also I just think that non-Inquisition general articles have not been updated enough since we have all of the glorious graphics now WhisperingElf (talk) 00:00, April 1, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf

Images Continued Edit

Hello. Once again, these images are of excellent quality. However again, I'd like to remind you that we really don't need multiple images which all prove the same point. Also images such as the ones you potsed in Adamant Fortress, should not be posted in a location article period, as the images contain major spoilers and should be under narrative articles such as War against the Elder One etc. -Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 04:10, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

Also please capitalize subtitles on thumbnail for images in articles.

-Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 04:16, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

Also, you uploaded an image of a destroyed village in the Exalted Plains to Orlais, but failed to list the name of the village or cite from where and why it is sacred to the Chantry. Also the image should probably be on the Exalted Plains rather than Orlais.

wheezes out an apology for fucking up, then shuffles back to my hole in the ground* WhisperingElf (talk) 05:11, April 4, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf
Don't stress yourself over this, its really not a big deal. I can't emphasize strongly enough its not the quality of the images, that's quite excellent, just the formatting needs a little alteration.

Images III Edit

Hey while you're going around creating image galleries for different areas, do you think you could get us some decently varied images for the multiplayer areas, Elven Ruins (Inquisition), Tevinter Ruins and Orlesian Chateau please -Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 04:55, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

yessir WhisperingElf (talk) 22:04, April 13, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf
Thanks for the Tevinter Ruins gallery set, It looks very nice.

-Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 02:28, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

Gallery size Edit

Just a friendly reminder that no gallery should have more than 12 images per DA:IMAGE. Thanks! Friendship smallLoleil Talk 05:05, April 5, 2015 (UTC)

Olresian War Image Edit

Hey where did you find this

Orlesian invasion

I'm really curious

-Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 01:37, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Heroes of Dragon Age, on the map 'Nevarra's Plight'. If only we could remove the quest icons to see the whole background, there'd be a huge spreadout depicting Nevarran castles and such:/ WhisperingElf (talk) 22:09, April 7, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf
Don't actually play that game, though. It is actually cocaine disguised in the form of an app game. WhisperingElf (talk) 01:53, April 8, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf
Do you think you could upload the full version of the image? We might be able to find someone to photoshop it around and make it more usable.

-Seekers of Truth heraldryHD3 (Talk) 02:14, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I'll try to WhisperingElf (talk) 03:44, April 17, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf

Sources Edit

Hey, WhisperingElf! Hope you are doing well Smiley Looks like you've been adding quite a bit of new stuff about Alamarra and other topics and I was wondering what your source is? I think it'd be helpful to add references to this new info. --Kelcat Talk 05:30, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

World of Thedas volume 2, you can peek at mostly the whole thing on amazon! http://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Age-World-Thedas-2/dp/1616555017/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429370441&sr=8-1&keywords=world+of+thedas+volume+2 I'm going to make all of the elf recipesWhisperingElf (talk) 15:31, April 18, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf

References Edit

Hi) I understand that you are updating articles with the new information from World of Thedas 2. Could you please add a reference each time you do so? This way, "World of Thedas, Vol. 2, page X". Otherwise they can be deleted as speculation. Asherinka (talk) 05:54, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

And the reference added to The Hanged Man is broken. DaBarkspawn (talk) 19:30, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

<sup> tags for references Edit

Hi, just wanted to let you know that it's not our site style to use <sup> tags for references. If we ever did decide to change the way references looked, we would do so on a template level so there's not too much code. Friendship smallLoleil Talk 18:12, April 30, 2015 (UTC)

Uploading Images Edit

Hey! Just a quick reminder to make sure when you are uploading images to add the correct license, category, and brief description of the image (this is especially helpful when the image comes from a source other than the games). You can check Category:Images for a list of the different categories we use. It's also very helpful to use a file name that's descriptive of the image, so try to avoid using names that are just a string of random numbers and letters. It's easy to forget that part, so if you ever need an image renamed, just let an admin know and we can fix it. Thanks for all your hard work lately! --Kelcat Talk 22:20, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

Oh! And since you're adding quite a bit of World of Thedas Vol 2 stuff, you might like to know that we have a template to use for the citation: {{wot2|page#}} (just put the number of the page after the | , you don't have to write out "page" or "pg"). --Kelcat Talk 22:23, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

Alright, I'll start doing those things. And I'm sorry for making ^^ so many mistakes and therefore more work for you and the others. WhisperingElf (talk) 22:34, May 4, 2015 (UTC)WhisperingElf
Nah, it's no problem. We've just got a huge backlog of uncategorized images right now, so every little bit helps! --Kelcat Talk 22:35, May 4, 2015 (UTC)
