Item Lore missing

Not every Lore Item has an Identify Lore Message, so adding Item Lore missing to every lore item's page that doesn't have a message is misleading.

Additionally not all Identify Lore Messages are in the project 1999 timeline. Which means sources like databases may not be correct for p99. So what this means is if an item on p99 has an identify message it can be added to the wiki, otherwise it needs to be proven to be within the timeline. If a message is in game but can't be proven it's in the timeline it may a bug. Otherwise if there is no message and it should, within the timeline, that is also a bug.

The safest plan is to use identify on these items yourself in game and add that message to the wiki, because this is the p99 wiki.

@Baler I was going to identify every item on p1999. So then the p1999 wiki will match p1999. if something does not match timeline, then we can change it then.

I like the initiative, without meaning this as a jerk I didn't see the point in adding missing lore to pages. Why not add the missing lore messages if one exists. And let me extend some resources to aid you.

Lucy Database has most lore message but not all (and aformentioned not all lore items have a message)

There is also the Project EQ database which contains items and their lore messages (eqemu). Can open the SQL file with notepad++ for example to search for items.

This way you can find most of the lore messages, even if they're not within the p99 timeline.

There was a comment about Magelo getting broken with the missing lore. Need to remember where I saw that, and see if it is single item, or all items.

Ennewi Mentioned the Missing lore template was breaking the magelo on the category page but quickly removed the mention the next day. I think it was fixed or an unrelated break. I'm glad someone else caught onto the template! I started it but it was a massive undertaking so I dropped it for a little while. I've started going through the Kunark zones/items again and adding it if you'd like to skip forward on your list.

Great. I have been filling in the missing ones as I come across them in game. I was planning on trying to remove some of the missing prior to going to Velious as that will add LOTS.
