Sure, dunno how I got Magelo Blue:Magelo Blue:Loramin
I was going through the Thurgadin armour quests and found that Bard has a duplicate page.
The proper one Bard Thurgadin Armor Quests
The duplicate Thurgadin Bard Armor Quest
They have some minor differences wasn't sure what to do.

Pages w/ Missing Auction Tracker Boxes
Hey Loramin- I know Ravhin isn't really around so I'm not sure who else to bring this up to. I've been trying my best to keep the prices updated on the wiki and identify item pages that are missing the auction box. I've posted this to Rav's user page as well since he did fix a handfull of these last year.
List of Pages that need price info on them:
Re: Pages w/ Missing Auction Tracker Boxes
I actually got a PM from Ravhin in September last year, so while I don't know the details it seems like he's still around to some degree. You could always try PMing him.
I've actually been wondering about the items that are missing their auction tracker too, but unfortunately to find the answer (without Ravhin's help) you have to understand the PHP code he wrote, and since PHP is a language I'm not a big fan of I haven't wanted to spend the time/energy.
If you (or someone you know) knows PHP though you can download his code by clicking the "Custom Extensions Source" link at http://wiki.project1999.com/utils/wikiUtils.php. The auction tracker code has its own folder, and it should explain how the tracker does what it does (and thus why it leaves out certain items).

So I looked through the AuctionTracker folder and while I'm very rusty in parsing code of any kind it seems like the PHP files in there are for the machinery of the tracker and not the embedded call on the item pages to pull that applet. The one thing that might be it is if the subset of items that are missing the tracker box are not in the Lucy database it's referencing as part of a log parse then I guess that would explain it. My best guess is that there are two templates for new item pages and one has the tracker, and one doesn't so that's why only a small subset of item pages are missing it. I might try to create some duplicate item pages to see if I can figure out if that's the case...
I've tried playing around with the wiki markup on the auction-less pages, but haven't had much luck myself. Hope you have better luck :)

No luck on my end either... seems to be something with the back end in how it takes the wiki markup to create the page since the wiki code the new item tool spits out is essentially the same regardless whether the item will end up with an auction box or not... you can see the missing chunk of code in if you look at the rendered pages source code of items with and without the auction box. Unfortunately we're getting to the limits of my coding knowledge... Do you know if there are any other active admins we could reach out to for ideas?
Otherwise I'll just continue pulling together a list of pages that are missing the box with the hope that some future whippersnapper comes along to figure it out :)
Just Ravhin :(

Where art thou Ravhin~~
