And...it seems some people just can't let me get a break... Could someone either provide evidence that there will be 3 more bounties added to the middle of the cycle or change it back to the way I had it? --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 22:00, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
On the listing of "unknowns": Basically, we don't know whether that is correct, because Anet had to "fix" the quest rotation in the middle of the cycle. It's possible that they either 1) fixed the timer/counter that determines which position in the quest list to pick each day, or 2) fixed the quest list itself. If it was #2, then it's possible that they further corrected the list so that the quest selected on the day it was fixed was the one that should have directly followed Lev the Condemned. On the other hand, they may not have gone to that much trouble and simply re-joined the list in progress, skipping the quests for the 3 days that the list/counter was bugged. Since we don't know, it doesn't really matter which state we leave this template in, so let's just leave it as-is until Saturday. (I didn't see any reason to revert your edit; however, I also don't see a reason to re-revert.)
On the linking issue: I had initially set it up the way you did, and although I'd still prefer that for use on the Main Page, it doesn't work as well on pages like the Daily forecast. The only solution is to have this template not produce a link, relying on the transcluding page to do that, where the transcluding page could also do some #sub:stringing and stuff to remove the "Wanted:" if it's not wanted. (har har) The problem there is that it would be inconsistent with the Zaishen and Nicholas templates, and thus would be far less intuitive. (I think Wolfie or someone also complained that leaving out "Wanted:" makes it look like a link to the boss itself, instead of the quest.) —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 03:05, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, that was me, not complained, just pointed out that without the "Wanted:" part, blurs the line between the quest and the boss article, and since the "Wanted by the SB" sign is handing out quests, should visually link to the quest article. --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 03:16, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
I guess we'll find out about the unknowns this weekend, although I think that change was just to rewards. About taking out the "Wanted:" part, sure that displays exactly the boss name, but there's no confusion there because of the context where this template is and should be used. It currently appears redundant everywhere, with the main page saying "Shining Blade: Wanted: (boss name)". And I think it would actually be much better for the Daily forecast and my Calendar if it didn't say "Wanted:" because its already in the "Shining Blade Bounty" column (or in the case of my calendar, I made it a little Shining Blade icon). Not to mention that it would look a lot cleaner. --Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 22:16, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
