Talk:EZ Server Wiki
Question regarding formatting. I'm not too familiar with mediawiki just yet, but is there a way to make a Next Page, Previous Page, Back Home type of button to apply to a set of pages? I know I could do this with a bunch of links but was just curious.
You can do things with plugins - but I don't have access to the backend anymore (or at least I don't know how to access it) now that Hate is hosting. A lot of Mediawiki is pretty primitive. This works though - talk pages don't have to be pretty - they're only used by the 4-5 of us.
Oh I wanted to make the buttons in regards to something like a boss chain (t7 and the Halloween zone), where the user would click Boss #1 for example and have the options to click "Next Boss -->" or "Go back to the Main Page for this zone". I guess one primitive way to do it would be to just make a ton of links to things that say "<--- Previous Boss" alignment left, "This Zone's Main Page" alignment center, "Next Boss --->" alignment right.
Just got a rough version working on the Halloween event page. Check it out =D Cazic Thule Halloween
BTW - I love that "Next Boss --->" "<--- Previous Boss" thing you added - super useful
With T10, I want to make sure that Hate's on board with the amount of information that we put out soon after release. I can email him, or any of you can ask - but want to make sure that we don't put "spoilers" in the first amount of time breaking into T10, and I'm not sure what the balance is of "spoilers" vs. not
I only intend on adding screenshot of spells and things like boss names etc. Not spawn mechanics or spoilers just yet. I uncovered quite a few in the final beta test =p
I'm sure you did - I don't play on Darpey and haven't for a while (although I probably will once T10 is out) but I was looking over my brother's shoulder as he was playing Darpey, and saw you spent quite a bit of time there during Beta. Yeah, I'm sure a proper map and spells would be fine, spawn mechanics not. I'll check with Hate, or direct him to this thread and have him put in his word
I agree on T10, although info spoiled on the boards I would say is fair game, people are going to find that just as easy (or easier) than on the wiki.
I'm fine with posting T10 gear/spells/whatever. My only request is that you avoid mechanics for a bit (month or so) and only post what you have unlocked. Darpey and Kruciel do have #fi access (finally fixed btw, thanks to Kruciel's diligence). So if you only own Pants of the Angry Gnome and Sleeves of the Angry Gnome, I would like to not see the entire set submitted by you. :-)
Temporarily changed the front wiki page to have a top link to the three Halloween articles (including forum) - feel free to change the layout if you can think of a cleaner way to show it. *shrug*
Darpey, funny, I was thinking about tweaking those lines earlier this morning myself. Separate topic, we should clean up these talk pages periodically, we have lots of chatter now showing up on them some of which is pointless to continue keeping.
I know how you feel about annoying bold messages, Darpey =p but Halloween only has a few days left and I'm getting annoyed at the amount of questions in ooc sooo I made the link annoyingly obvious for people. I'll take it down November 2nd when it's over (unless Akka / Hate decide to extend it due to previous lag)
The changes make sense to me - but if you disagree, feel free to change the format or reverse the changes
Hopefully this doesn't break anything or do something weird.
Well, looks like we could break it down into topics, that could help a bit.
On some wiki software with enough topics, 3+ I think, it adds a contents menu. That could be useful for organizing it.
I confirmed (by spamming this page) that we have a TOC created when this page reaches 4 topics. Moving forward, let's try to post under a broad topic for these discussion pages, that should help us moving forward.
Hi All! After Christmas when Love and I get some of the backend crap in order, we're going to PM a mega list of all the spells by tier. Going to update the spells required level, "spell level", and lore description too! Those of you with #fi access can get things up to date as time permits. Just an f.y.i. and all. Excellent work with this btw, I reference it fairly often. ::hide::
Does anyone have suggestions of things to do on the wiki? I'm finishing up the Ultimate weapon tables, and did the ToV bosses. The wiki seems pretty... finished (or close to it), but surely that can't be. Any tedious projects to do?
I had planned to do up pages for all the hub cities and guilds with info pages for the npc's, but real life is keeping me from even finishing the stone droppers in T7. Other than that and the 23 other random wanted pages I think we are done building the basics for everything but T10.
"up pages for all the hub cities and guilds with info pages for the npc's" - What do you mean?
Well pages like stonehive could use a lot of work, would like to include all the quest npc's, the venders and their commonly sold items.
I noticed tonight that our custom spells don't tell you what vellum is used in making them for zones with multiple tiers. Can anyone with access fix that, and maybe check to see if what we have is correct? I don't have the spell inks to try them all one by one.
