Hey, lots of interesting ideas for the item pages. I am moving it here for now and replacing it with the current "template" for items. I am definitely open to improving this and adding some of the elements you have on this page, but let's think more about them first (and how we would update all existing item pages to such a new format). --Ravhin 15:55, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Hey, I fixed a bug in the merchant scraper which was causing all the item lists to be "None." Now they are put in correctly.
If you add a merchant whose item list is empty you shouldn't just add it, at least add a note that you don't yet know what is sold, otherwise people might be confused that the merchant actually sells nothing.
Also I think some things you're adding (like Scribe Biddlegorb which I deleted) don't actually exist on p99? I realize you aren't going around to all these things you're adding, and thats ok, but it is important to be careful to only add classic content. Perhaps stick to areas you are familiar with or exploring currently with your character.
Otherwise, thanks for all the additions! Nice to fill in lots of the missing pages. --Ravhin 07:58, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Whenever I look at the recent changes your submissions are ubiquitous, cheers!
Hey, all your additions encouraged me to make a new extension which was in the plan the whole time. Now it may actually be interesting as more content is added.
You can see it at the bottom of Ak'Anon. Let me know if you have any more ideas or suggestions!
The point is to include a complete list of quests, NPCs, and items for each zone (just like allakhazam) - the lists are generated automatically based on pages on the wiki which have the right categories.
I am going to run a script to add zone categories to all items, then I will finish the item part, and then add it to more zones. --Ravhin 05:33, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Glad to see you back man. The wiki is really looking good these days. Feel free to start any discussions for changes on Help talk:Contents - you know I worked with you to change the item pages a bit, etc. Let me explain why I seem to delete or change lots of things: With you adding so much content one of the main things I am trying to do is keep it accurate, complete, consistent, even "compact" / "neat". I try to keep all of the maintenance lists at a minimum (they should all be empty), stuff like:
In terms of a "big goal", what I am trying to do is get this list to absolutely zero: Special:WantedPages. When I started working on the wiki that page got up to ~1000 then I got it down to only a few hundred (by both adding content and making sure that all the pages were properly linked up and not having bad links, inconsistent links, etc). Now that page is up to 4115! So when I delete or condense things I am just trying to clean up that list, working towards our goal here of making this wiki complete. --Ravhin 01:32, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
Hey I know you were interested in pages to handle mobs (or items) with the same name. What do you think about []? It's about as simple an approach as possible, where for each one you just add some sort of qualifier in parenthesis, e.g. "an orc pawn (East Commonlands)" "an orc pawn (Greater Faydark)".
Not that I'm suggesting we go crazy and get into so much detail right now, but it might be nice to have a rule in place. --Ravhin 02:18, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
