The edit that I made was a needed clarification. Following the directions that are currently posted leads one to fight a large amount of Crimson Skull, with one bonesnap turtle hiding on the west side of Haiju Lagoon. I do not understand this 'fourth wall' comment you are referring to, as 'breaking the fourth wall' refers to bringing something into reality that is fictional. By a more accurate, or 'precise' I should say, description, I was able to inform those who would wish to farm these turtles their exact location instead of having them wander about like headless zombies like I did with the current poor description. I am not trying to be rude, just helpful. People often ask me for a good farming spot for this; I wanted to contribute to help people find it. If you can use my information and edit in a way that more suits the required format for the pages, please do. Thanks. [[User:Paladin4222003|Paladin4222003]] 05:07, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

:I think he was referring to your mention of "the map marker." But since bonesnap turtles appear all over Haiju Lagoon, perhaps we should only mention the largest group, if farming is the goal. IIRC, the group you were talking about (north of Zen Daijun, along the edge) ''is'' the largest group... but you made it sound like it was the ''only'' group. It just needs to be rewritten a bit more, nothing wrong with that. --[[User:Macros|Macros]] 06:57, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Well then

Time to clean house. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 21:49, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

looks great

Its eerily good, dude. Congrats to you and everyone else involved. JediRogue 17:19, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Where the crap you beed, dawg? Felix Omni Signature.png 19:03, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Well done and thank you

Thank you for all the time and effort you have contributing to helping Guild Wiki arrive here safely and smoothly.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:47, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I really appreciate it. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 20:21, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

German interlanguage table

The German GuildWiki staff have provided a copy of their interwiki table at http://www.guildwiki.de/vorlage-en.txt . Do you think you could bot the reverse interlanguage links onto GuildWiki? --◄mendel► 15:03, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Wow. o_o Yeah, I can do that, just can't promise when I'll have time for it. Poke me if I don't get to it by next Friday. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:16, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Okay, documenting the problem:
  • I can connect to the API, and action=query request work fine, but whenever I try action=edit&nocreate=1 (so it won't create a page that didn't previously exist), I get a 'missingtitle' error. When I leave nocreate undefined, the result is that the page Api.php gets created.
  • I can run action=edit&nocreate=1 on my local MediaWiki install successfully.
  • If $wgEnableWriteAPI is turned off on my local wiki, then I get a 'noapiwrite' error instead.
So it looks like the write API is enabled here, but something else is causing an error. I get the same results whether I'm using Perl's MediaWiki::API module or cURL. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:09, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
I'd forgotten that AWB actually uses the API as well. And so does pywikipedia, which I looked into last night. Which means we are completely borked for automated editing right now. There is an old Perl module that doesn't use the API, but it probably wouldn't work correctly with the current version of MW. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:01, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
Just a note because I saw you added the first of them: you might want to replace any underscore by a space when adding the interlanguage links to articles, MediaWiki will create the correct links but it will look nicer when viewing an article's source. ;)--Tera 23:00, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Generally, this is complete, although I did have to skip a lot of stuff. I have all of these saved in separate files so someone can review them.
  • EN link was to an article section: 15
  • EN link was to GWW only: 268
  • EN link was to a redirect page: 487
  • EN link was to a missing page: 631
  • Multiple DE pages linked to the same EN page: 569
  • DE links created: 13,600
Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:00, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch! I've left a note over at guildwiki.de asking for help; could you upload those lists of links that need review (if they'd be linkified to point here or to :de: that'd be awesome)? --◄mendel► 05:45, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
/deDr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 17:23, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! I passed it on. --◄mendel► 18:42, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Image redirects

Why don't they work? mw:Manual:$wgFileRedirects suggests that they ought to. --◄mendel► 16:48, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

"Removed in version: 1.13.0" I've checked the source code - when parsing redirects, it specifically checks that the current namespace is not NS_FILE. Wikia hacked the MW code to re-enable them, but we shouldn't follow their example. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 17:00, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Humble Request

To celebrate the move here on Curse, i'd like to improve my userspace to higher standards: Can i borrow some code from your userpage to better customize mine? Sotaknuck 16:52, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Of course. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 17:33, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! It looks and feels much better now! Sotaknuck 10:01, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Images

Whenever you get the chance, upload your skill icons that have no borders to mediafire or something in a archive (.7z would be great, highest compression rate, and less loss) , I don't need names. Just keep em sorted by skill ID#. It's actually easier because without names windows can't flip out @ forbidded characters in filenames :) Thanks :) (also: pick any profession) — Scythe 20:44, 5 Dec 2010 (UTC)

Archive compression doesn't matter much when you're dealing with pre-compressed image files, the best you can get is usually 10-15% compression. Anyway, have fun - http://www.mediafire.com/?w1a7572k46acvw0Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 23:02, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
tyvm ishy, they're all uploaded as animations now :D — Scythe 0:27, 6 Dec 2010 (UTC)

Heyo

Want to start revamp'ing the infoboxes?–User Balistic Pve sig.pngalistic 22:23, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

I was planning on doing that as the SMW project progressed. Next on my list is locations, since that ties in to the whole Nicholas project. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 02:16, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

A History of Violence

Just in case you didn't see on IRC: [1] Wizardboy777 18:16, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed that problem a few pages later with this page. I fixed the problem and restarted from that point, but the page you found had already scrolled out of my DOS window's buffer, unfortunately. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:40, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

You beat me to the move of Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant, and the talkpage message. Stop being faster than me -- RandomTime 00:31, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

I suppose you're just irrelephant, then. :P —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 00:32, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

MediaWiki:TravelerUnknown

Does it still work? Should it become a Widget? --◄mendel► 23:26, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

I doubt it will work here, we don't have the necessary framework set up. Or do we? I dunno. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 23:34, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Moved to Widget:TravelerUnknown, and it works, mostly. $wgEnableMWSuggest has to be turned on in LocalSettings for the auto-complete feature to work (and that will also turn on auto-complete for the sidebar's search box). —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:17, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

CurseFooter

The analytics and footer should probably be two separate extensions and where do I stick advertising~ --68.56.228.159 15:26, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

I forgot to log in. --Bumbletalk 15:27, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Why do they need to be separate extensions? I can make them separate functions in the same extension, and set configuration parameters where you can enable/disable the footer or the trackers individually. Under that framework, ads would just be a third function. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:17, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
It would be awesome if the editors (= logged in users) would be exempt from ads, since they're the ones creating the content. If you would run some statistics and see whether you can afford that, it'd be great (I'd forego gimmicks and gadget rewards if I could have that); it would also allow those of us who are curse.com premium users site the luxury of no ads. (Or do you check that differently?) --◄mendel► 18:25, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Armor Gallaries Question

Are the guidelines for displaying armor very strict and inflexible? Specifically, if an armor gallery is perfect but "enable post-effects" is on/enabled, does that part need to be retaken and replaced? Or is it "good enough"?--BladeHanover2 15:39, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

User:Rose Of Kali is the one who really oversees the armor galleries project, so you should probably ask her for a final opinion. Personally, I find post-processing effects to be annoying because they create a huge glare spot on the armor that washes out the color/details in that area. You could avoid that by turning the character away from the sun, but then you have the opposite problem of everything being dark and washed out. Lack of anti-aliasing is also a bit of a bother, leaving jagged edges around the character that are kinda distracting. So I always recommend turning PP off and setting AA to 4x. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:05, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Also, see here. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:06, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Irc Inquiry

I found this after you asked a question in irc and went to bed. I'm gonna quote post it here...
"Kaelten: The curse overload errors in question are related to a backend error that's showing up"
"Kaelten: guessing ish has some hard coded hosts entries still"
"Kaelten: so he was always getting routed to the bad node"
Hope that helps. Ariyen 08:43, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Ugh, no one ever mentioned that I needed to remove that after the site went live. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:20, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
I saw that after you disappeared and decided to post it. I figured it'd help you out. Btw, thank you for the fixes on my talk page. :-) Ariyen 17:23, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh shoot, I need to fix that too. Felix Omni Signature.png 19:29, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

German interlanguage table, take 2

partially copied from User talk:Dr ishmael/de

Looks like there's a fair bit missing between "Hesham" and "Miner's chest", alphabetically. [..] This was split up and copied to GuildWiki:Interlanguage de project/* , so it'd be neat if any corrections would be applied there. --◄mendel► 16:08, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

You fix it then. I never really cared about this project in the first place. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:32, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't know what happened to the missing part of the log. How would I go about getting a current database dump?
The project is uncovering a number of articles that we're missing, I wonder if that is of value? --◄mendel► 19:21, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
