Magelo Pages

There are both Magelo Blue:Loramin and Magelo Blue:Magelo Blue:Loramin, can I delete one? --Ravhin (talk) 21:22, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Sure, dunno how I got Magelo Blue:Magelo Blue:Loramin


Hello pal, I moved your Test page in your personal sandbox: User_talk:Loramin/sandbox. Maximum (talk) 22:47, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Duplicate Page

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 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).

--Loramin (talk) 01:28, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

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...

--Helpr (talk) 21:48, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

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 :)

--Loramin (talk) 01:39, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

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 :)

--Helpr (talk) 20:47, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Just Ravhin :(

--Loramin (talk) 03:14, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Where art thou Ravhin~~

Wiki Code

There are a few things that maybe you have the knowledge to address that I don't first it seems someone has been uploading quite a number of outrageous auction tracker prices (eg Sarnak_Battle_Shield) and the ability to trim the outliers is current set to off Trim Outliers can we turn that on, or is that a Ravhin ability?.

Secondly on the page Category:Deity Worshiper Equipment and its subcategories when you hover over most links you get the error "AjaxHoverHelper Error 2." and it often obscures the links.

Lastly I think I have fixed this one but it seems the Template:Item Lore was causing issues with the Special:ClassSlotEquip and Special:DynamicZoneList reaping data correctly. I edited the Item Lore Template and hopefully when the Dynamic lists repopulate it will fix itself. I know it takes a few days do you know when it repopulates by anychance? --Zosymandias (talk) 16:10, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Re: Wiki Code

   ability to trim the outliers is current set to off  Trim Outliers can we turn that on, or is that a Ravhin ability?

That's all Ravhin (or technically anyone could change the PHP code to Rogean and ask him to deploy it, but Ravhin has both the knowledge and ability to change his own code PLUS I'm pretty sure he has the power to deploy it himself, so if at all possible you'll want to talk to him).

Personally my thought is that we should make the Auction Tracker correction page(s) wiki admin-only. That way admins can still fix things, but non-admins can't abuse the system to inflate prices (which I'm pretty sure is why it was turned off in the first place).

   Secondly on the page Category:Deity Worshiper Equipment and its subcategories when you hover over most links you get the error "AjaxHoverHelper Error 2." and it often obscures the links.

Thanks for catching that; I just fixed it (you may need to refresh or even clear cache to see the fix). What was going on is that I added mouse-over item links to all the equipment categories awhile back, so you didn't have to click on each item in a category to see it. However my code confused by that category, because it had "Equipment" in the title, but didn't have item pages (and it's ironic because I created that category).

   hopefully when the Dynamic lists repopulate it will fix itself.  I know it takes a few days do you know when it repopulates by anychance?

I don't, but I'm glad to hear you found a fix. If it doesn't repopulate itself soon, I think the answer is ... unfortunately ... Ravhin.

Hope that helps.

North Qeynos Done, Can't Send PM?

Hi, I am working on North Qeynos, but I can't send a PM on the forums. Apparently I don't have permission. Could you possibly give me permission to send PM's on the forums? My user name is Backle.

North Qeynos Loc Map

Here it is. Wiki is messing up my outside curly braces.


     height: 319,
     image: 'Zone_nqeynos.jpg', 
     test: {
       interval: 200,
       maxX: 400,
       maxY: 400,
       minX: -600,
       minY: -200
     width: 458,
     zeroX: 204,
     zeroY: 189,
     zoomX: .39,
     zoomY: .39


I noticed if it's aligned in one part of the map, it gets slightly misaligned by the time you get to the other side. I'm not sure if this is precision error or lack of uniformity in the grid? In the Eastern Wastes example you did, it looks perfect in the center, but then it's slightly misaligned at the bottom right. Is this just my browser or do you see the same? I'm using Firefox at 100% zoom. Of course zooming in either makes the already present misalignment more noticeable or is in fact the cause of further misalignment. Presumably 100% zoom is needed? Thanks.

--Backle (talk) 16:40, 6 July 2019 (UTC)


Please take some time to read the changes he's making to class pages. It's full of opinion and non-objective information. It's not an improvement and it's better suited for a player guide than the official P99 class pages.

--Baler (talk) 17:15, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

edit: It was apparently taken care of by another admin after the user in question was in fact deleting information from the wiki.

you can find the details and history here: User_talk:Kaejer

And just for the record it was not my intention to get the user banned.

Error 500

I'm trying to submit edits on firefox but it is giving me 500 Internal Server Error, with a blank page.

This is likely related to the change with HTTP/HTTPS. My setup defaults to HTTPS. When I try to do &action=submit it does this. But if I set my browser to default to HTTP, it will work and get changed to HTTPS along the way.

Had to use ungoogled chrome to make this msg.

--Baler (talk) 02:16, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

Problem resolved, thank you very much. It doesn't get said enough but a lot of people appreciate your hard work and time volunteered on the wiki. Thank You

Chardok V2.0 Era

Hey Loramin, I just realized you setup basically all of the Eras Templates page. I'm not sure how I understand the color and everything comes in to play with the Era linking in this page and tagging, but the purple color for the Chardok Revamp Era seems to point to Category:ChardokRevamp Era, but most things are tagged Category:Chardok Revamp Era (with a space) and it has no color. I tried messing with it, but couldn't fix it so I just undid everything I jacked up. Is there a way to combine these somehow or at least put the purple onto Chardok Revamp Era? If it requires mass retagging of one of the Eras to combine them I can work on that.
Category: Era Templates
--Kaejer (talk) 02:38, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

I just noticed that I think there is one more error on that I'm not sure how to fix. The "Page (Category-Adding)" section of the tables says {{Chardok Era}}, but I think it should be {{Chardok Revamp Era}}. I'm not sure if that actually matters or not though, because I was able to edit the redirect from Chardok Era to Chardok Revamp Era.

Missing Eras Page

Hey Loramin, since you are all fancy with your wizard magic code I thought I might ask if this was possible. Is there an easy way to create a Category page or something along those lines that lists all pages -without- an Era listed? If possible it might be something useful in case people want to thumb through pages and categorize everything by era.

"Race Line*: {{{race_line}}}" in some (most?) merchant pages

In the info box it's showing "Race Line*: {{{race_line}}}". It appears to be an issue specific to merchant pages though I haven't dug into other templates. This looks to be related to the recent changes to Template:Mobstatsbox, I haven't been able to find an example of it outside of merchants so far.

Magelo Namespace

Would there be a way to associate all of the Magelos with a single name space so it's easy to filter it all out in the Recent Changes page?
