There should probably be a link to the new 'Crafting' and 'Carving discipline' pages in the creation system at the bottom of the page. I'll leave it up to those who have permission to change this page to decide how best to do it.--Evran 19:10, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

News Archive/News

Made the Main Page include current news from the Elanthipedia:News Archives to minimize steps involved in posting news. --Naeya (talk) 19:55, 4 July 2011 (UTC)


I was thinking maybe their should be a Hangouts link on ether the green or this page. Just a simple list of hangout catagorized. What do you think? --Be thatguy 00:39, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't necessarily think that it's worthy of inclusion on the main page, but a list of in-game hang-outs might not be a bad idea. --Isharon 03:01, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
If you could make a basic layout I will start Filling it out, I'm not the most wikisavy person but I do it if there is a layout in place --Be thatguy 21:32, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
I usually do large charts in Excel and export the data to Elanthipedia, but I'll make a chart template. When I do, it will be posted to Popular Gathering Places. (I'll also redirect Hangouts to that article.) --Isharon 02:51, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
Oh I should have read this before I started going gangbusters on Hangouts. Sorry Isharon. --Pathian 04:19, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
No problem. I'm actually glad to have the information there. It shouldn't be too hard to move this information to tables. --Isharon 07:10, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Quests & Fests

I think it would be handy on the main page, under "The World" at the bottom there, to have a link to a global search for both Festivals and Quests. Festivals would have a link to each of the main festival pages (ex. Guildfest_405) and Quest would have links to each variation of the different quest runs (ex. Akigwe's_Legacy:_Secrets_of_the_Tower_Quest). Some of us can't properly spell in the search box it nice to be able to just have an Idiot's Guide to click through! --Kythryn 10:58, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

DR 3.0 top banner on main page

Would it be possible to put in a really prominent box on top of the main page dedicated to DR 3.0?

I think given the opening of the test instance, how imminent the rollout seems to be, how many large changes are coming, and how important a resource Elanthipedia has become, this would be very useful.--Farman 19:49, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

How's that? -Moderator Caraamon Makdasi(talk) 01:53, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Awesome Caraamon, thanks. --Farman 18:11, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Taisidon note suggestion

On the right hand "Current Drive" section, it reads "Taisidon Safari 412: periodic runs". Would it be more accurate to write it up as "Taisidon Safari: standard, deluxe & mega events"? Or something similar (not sure how long those blurbs can be). But, since we're in 413 now, and I wouldn't be surprised if they run more safari events now that they have it up and going, at least it makes sense to drop the year qualifier. --Kythryn 17:51, 15 July 2014 (CDT)

Could we put a note about the current Taisidon Safari 420 event on the front "Elanthipedia News" section please? Thanks! --Kythryn 18:21, 1 August 2016 (CDT)

Updates to Crafting Systems section

I'd like to propose a cleanup of the "Creation Systems" on the main page. This is probably a contentious topic, but I would rather not clutter the page with Skills vs Disciplines and stick to the current "systems" that can create things. Simplicity is king. Poison making was left off the other creation systems list on purpose. - Padhg (talk) 18:13 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Creation Systems
Five Crafting disciplines are to be released as part of the Mechanical Lore split:

Other creation systems:

I believe the above should work well, but the 5 crafting skill pages need to be updated before this goes live. - Padhg (talk) 17:28 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Exception error when linking to Necromancer page.

I get an exception error when trying to access the Necromancer page along with a bunch of what looks like coding. Could someone look into this?
