New Page setup

Wanted to start a new page for Duel Wield under the skill/weapon skill category. I'm confounded and confused. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, has duel wielding been released or are you referring to Offhand_Weapon_skill?--Naeya (talk) 18:58, 25 July 2007 (CDT)

Tagging map errors

What's the standard operating procedure for tagging map errors?

Put {{Map Error}} at the top of the map page. --Naeya (talk) 13:40, 20 October 2008 (CDT)

Rename a page

How do you rename a page?

Make sure you sign your posts on pages like this with 4 tildes (~~~~). To rename a page simply Move it to the new name. IE Visit the page, click the Move tab at the top, and input the new name in the new title field. --Naeya (talk) 14:14, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
Yea, if it was a snake it would have bit me. Thanks Hanryu 14:33, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Change store coin type

this shop http://www.elanthipedia.com/wiki/Athyiro%27s_Art_for_Skin is a premie LTP point shop, how do I make not tell me it wants Lirum?
--Hanryu 17:34, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

The template didn't allow it, but now it does. -Moderator Caraamon Strugr-Makdasi(talk) 20:23, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Spell infobox reqs

Almost all the Ranger Spells now have this big yellow missing info crap showing up on them. I swear a few months ago I fixed all this shit. Anyway, how do I figure out what info is missing? When I try to edit the pages I don't see any empty lines to add info. Thanks

--13:21, 24 February 2009 (UTC)Hanryu

A few of the templates seem broken in that they sometimes list as incomplete even if they are complete, such as Template:NPC and one of the shop ones. (Not sure which shop one, though; when I was editing Willowy green-robed priestess I copied Old battle priest verbatim. WGRP shows as incomplete while OBP doesn't.) --Thilan 15:26, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Migration to templates

Is there something server side that has to be done when an existing article is migrated to a template? I've tried to migrate Swan Dance, but the Edit with form option is not showing up.


Are collapsible/expandable tables possible here? --Legeres 09:52, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

No clue. I've never seen any, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.-Moderator Caraamon Strugr-Makdasi(talk) 22:50, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

player character template

I don't suppose someone would be willing to alter it so we could optionally list more then one instance for specific characters? Legeres 17:03, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Done, just add commas between the instances. -Moderator Caraamon Strugr-Makdasi(talk) 17:30, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you--Legeres 13:09, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Wound/Scar Severity List

I dug up and down, but apparently my searching skills suck or this does not yet exist on the wiki. I'd love to see a page with the wound and scar messages listed in order. Anyone got this info somewhere?--Hanryu 14:15, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Damage has space for it, but I don't think any of the messaging has been added to any page.

Where to put Avalon Stuff

So I've got several files that I think would be fun to share,

Squelch/Replace for the new mana levels
Highlights for the new mana
Health highlights

Where's the best place to stick this kind of stuff? And what should I title the page?--Hanryu 16:55, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd probably put it in with the Avalon specific scripts, here

Citing other Sites

I've been adding definitions to uncommon words (especially titles) from www.dictionary.com but I'm unsure how to cite them properly. I've stopped until I can figure out how to do this, since I don't want to be abusing such a great site. --Zamara 22:45, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

template help

I posted a page for one of my plat characters. Kydosha.

I keep getting that the template i used is a "template loop". Please let me know how to fix this. I copy-pasted the template for PCs. Not sure what is making it loop?



You didn't need to make a new Template, just copy and paste the To Use fields from Template:Player character onto the character's page and add in the appropriate info. You were receiving the Template Loop error because the template you were building was trying to use itself, thus a loop was formed. If you look at the Player Character template, the section that would normally call the template (E.G. {{Player character}}) is surrounded by the NoInclude tags which tells the wiki to ignore that section when the template is called.
Also, to sign your posts, include 4 tildes(~) at the end. -Glimmereyes 13:57, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks, i think i figured it out, only problem now, i seem to have duplicate templates. For shvartzgonif, and for totendanz. Problem is, i wanted seperate templates for totendanz, as they have seperate backstories in 2 different instances : plat & prime. <the plat girl i called Totendanz2>. But i inadvertantly ended up listed characters named Templates! argggh!
I admittedly suck at wiki!
me Kydosha 22:08, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
Take a closer look at Totendanz, Totendanz (Plat), Shoshannah and/or Shayddow for proper use of the Player Template since I have corrected them. The first line of a template {E.G. {{Player character) should not be altered. I left Shvartzgonif alone so you can try and fix it yourself.
There is no reason to make a new Template page for a character. If you're making a new template, you're doing it wrong. -Glimmereyes 23:56, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Links by race

I got most of the things highlighted to link.

I noticed one thing though, where player characters are listed and catergorized by race, it doesn't include plat characters, although it does include plat characters under player characters, guild. Any way for this to be added?

Thanks! me Kydosha 07:10, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

completing a previous incomplete article

If you complete the previously unposted information on an "incomplete" article, how do you then change its category to "completed"?


There are two ways. If it's an item, it's usually handled by a template and will remove it automatically. Otherwise, you may need to remove the marker, something like {{incomplete|blah blah}}. Just delete it. -Moderator Caraamon Makdasi(talk) 20:14, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

magic updating reqs: titles

updated one of the titles <hedge witch> for the category "magic" - however, the "magic titles" page apparently doesn't pull from the composite titles, so it still lists the pre-3.0 reqs. When I tried looking up the page, it had something I hadn't seen before, so i wasn't going to mess with that part of it.

As I research individual titles, i'll continue to check them for 3.0, but the general category needs to be fixed.

While it will be good to update how titles are pulled, I don't believe the requirements themselves have been GM reviewed and possibly/probably updated for 3.0. It seems silly to try to update these pages when the new requirements aren't even released yet. --TEVESHSZAT 14:49, 14 August 2013 (UTC)


I obliviously messed up trying to make a disambig page. Holey Warez works, but Holey Warez (1) redirects to it, Holey Warez (2) is okay. Sorry! How do I do this right in the future? --Saslisena 18:59, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Flower Power (2) - (5) Updated Versions of Old Items on Wrong (?) Pages

I think the items from here (and here and here) that point to pages ending with (1) should instead be pointing to (2).

Essentially these items are updated versions of earlier items (see here). I think the first versions should have been moved to (1), the new versions created at (2) and a disambiguation page created for the base page. I don't think I can correct this myself, without putting the first items at (2) and making them seem like they're more recent versions when they're not.


First version: White linen hood

Newer version: White linen hood (1)

I can just move the original ones to (2) I guess, but wanted to check first. Is there a better solution?

Thanks, ZERODIVIDES (talk) 14:56, 21 November 2020 (CST)

I want to make sure I understand you. You're asking if the White linen hood (1) (newer version) should be a "(2)" and the older versions, White linen hood, be the "(1)", correct?
If I have that right, couldn't we first MOVE all the (newer version) "(1)" to be "(2)", so [[Armor:White_linen_hood_(2)|White linen hood (2)]], and then MOVE all the (older version) ones to be "(1)" with an overwrite of the REDIRECT that was just created for the new version? And then finally make up the {{disambig}} page to overwrite the REDIRECT page that was created from the older version page moves? Kythryn 21:27, 22 November 2020 (CST)
