Setting up an redirect?

  • How can I set up a redirect? If only admins can do it can you please redirect monster to creatures, monsters to creatures and exp to experience?

Time formula

  • About the Time formula: try to see for a lonegr period, will allow you to make a 0.5 sec error and still get correct result. If you measure the time it takes for 30 tibian minutes, and you get 61 seconds, you made an error of approx 1 second, but still get the correct result that 1 tibian min is 2 sec, or if you get 30 tibian minutes is 74 seconds, means 1 min is 2.5 seconds.

  • Alreth, please do something to contact Rekujot i tried to contact him with his Talk page but he doesnt seem to know about it....
    he is uploading images like platelegs.JPG, steelboots.gif, Fire_Elemental.jpg and i wanted to told him to use templates too...
    and Main Page Needs more Sections, there are some Important Pages around wiki that should be in Main Page... like this Item List and this Spell List, also something like a Tibian Atlas that lists all the places from tibia and maybe Tibia Language

Template to Categorize bad images

  • emm...i noticed that there's a new Template to Categorize images with wrong formats, names or forbidded content...
    but the code have not been exposed in any page....(i know the code...hehe..) so i wanted to know if that code can only be used by Admins or Anybody can use it?

    PS: TibiaWiki:Standards needs to be edited to add the new templates or when Rekujot comes back, he will use old templates...hehe, i could do it but... i prefered to ask you first...
  • If you could please edit TibiaWiki:Standards so it is up-to-date that would be really great. I feel that I have been to inactive here while you all developed and inplemented the standards you are now using that I know to little about them. You who have been using them a lot seem to know how to use them and can maybe edit the standards-page so it's correct?

Images for deletion template


Template:Equips_Set

  • Alreth,
    Why did you replace Black.gif with White.gif in places where Template:Equips Set is used? I intended it to look similar to a Tibia screenshot of somebody's equips, which, in the game are shown on a black background. Putting the white square there instead looks ugly and is more likely to be seen as a coding error by anybody who reads it.
    I think it would only be appropriate to use White.gif (to indicate "no item here") in cases where the items were being shown against a white background. Of course, the Equips Set could be modified to display items that way, or even to accept a parameter indicating the user's background color preference, but who would want to do that?

Abuse

  • Thanks for cleaning up that Teh'Fleart thing. I have firewalled his IP address off from the server, so if he's using a static IP, problem solved, for now. If he continues, hey, I can ban his whole ISP from editing from the Wiki. ;)

    I'm told that future versions of MediaWiki will have better user management, so issues like this one may become less of a problem in the future. Besides, as we've said in the past, these idiots don't do any real damage as any thing they do can be instantly rolled back in a single click :P. One thing I will definitely do when it's available is have authenicated email addresses, not optional email addresses that aren't verified.

new templates

I only added each template to each creature to test and because is too late here.....
Is there a list of Categories??? i was searching for a link with all the existant categories...
and a suggestion.... what about adding something to Runes,Spells,Items, and Creatures template to categorize them, so each monster, rune, spell and item will be categorized.
I know the code to add a page to a category so i can do it, im just "asking for permission" =P

  • Alreth, the links to the tibia.com character profiles on your User page do not work properly. I figured out why. You need to change the part that says "subtopic=characters&" to "subtopic=character&"

[[Category:Images_for_deletion|Bad images]]<br>.
What that does is adds your page to IFD and alphabatizes it as if it were titled "Bad images". You gotta change [[Category:...]] to [[:Category:...]]. Might want to fix it before your page gets converted into bitmap and deleted. On the other hand, your HTML skills are great. :P

Quest spoilers

Trans.gif

  • Regarding image Trans.gif, could you upload a new one that's 32 x 32 so the empty equips set squares actually stay square? I tried to open a copy Trans.gif and stretch it to 32 x 32 and re-upload, but MS Paint (which sucks) changed all to solid white, so I reverted it. Thx.

Foo Library → Foo (library)

  • I was kinda curious why you moved your library pages like that. I figure "Library" would be part of the proper name of "Desert Dungeon Library" just like "Quest" is part of "Desert Dungeon Quest." I don't see that there's a naming conflict to avoid here, so I'll go ahead and move them back.

Key Pages

Would it be useful/reasonable/moral to create a separate page for each key (e.g. "http://tibia.erig.net/Key_4043")?

If this was done, then it would also be logical to create an "infobox" template for keys (similar to Template:Infobox Item).

There are concerns about quest spoiling. I am open to suggestions.

I would be happy to do some of the work for this, but I wanted to make sure it was a "good idea" before I did. Conversely, it may just be a "good idea" to forget about it.

--  Veni, vidi, volo in domum redire
--  Whitelaces †  Talk †  -- 13:57, 12 October 2005 (EDT)


Well, since there is only minimal info for most keys, the ideal situation would be achievable if only the MediaWiki software allowed for section redirects. Example:

[[List_of_Keys]] contains "==Keys==" and "===4043===" , and...
[[Key_4043]] contains "#redirect [[List_of_Keys#4043]]"

but this is not possible. It sends you to the top of the page instead. Such a feature is not likely to be added in any software update according to this link. So sad.
Give me time and I'll come up with something better though.

Rune Farmer–(talk)–(edits)–(profile)–(guild)–(house) 03:44, 13 October 2005 (EDT)

That's alright. I was just trying to think of how a normal site visitor would find the info in this wiki to be the most useful. Also, having a more structured organization of the keys may encourage others to fill in the missing information (make it easier for them, and therefore more likely to occur).

I saw the key template you were playing around with in TibiaWiki:Playground. This is almost exactly what I was thinking of. I am still a little concerned about quest spoiling, though. Should I even worry about it? Is there any information someone would want to know about a key if they didn't want to quest-spoil?

-- Veni, vidi, volo in domum redire
--  Whitelaces †  Talk †  -- 09:05, 13 October 2005 (EDT)

Yup i figured it out I think. The coding on the key page (Playground/Key_3142) is really tricky though. It uses the same set of info, but it displays differently depending on whether you are viewing the page directly (using Playground/T2) or as part of the list (Playground/List of Keys, using Playground/T1). If I can tweak this a bit and make it easier for people to make new pages without being concerned with how it actually works (see Wikipedia:Black box) we could be onto something really good here. And we would use it for item/creature/etc lists too. I'll rack my brain on it some other time. Now I need to go to sleep.

Rune Farmer–(talk)–(edits)–(profile)–(guild)–(house) 09:43, 13 October 2005 (EDT)

I decided to be bold like Leeroy Jenkins and do this thing. Needs contribution from somebody who knows more about individual keys, though.

Login/Skin problems

Hey Alreth, I saw the issue you mentioned at User talk:Erig...

I too can't login with my old username, Alreth, anymore. Every
screen turns blank when I'm logged in as that. :(
--Alreth2 15:13, 29 October 2005 (EDT) 

...and I was wondering whether you were ever able to fix this. I believe had the same problem as you did, on my User:Rune Farmer account. I figured out how to regain access. I think it has to do with some of the skins being broken so to speak. So I changed back to the default skin without actually being able to see, onscreen, what I was doing. If you are still having this problem, or if anybody else is, I will explain what I did.

Rune Farmer–(talk)–(edits)–(profile)–(guild)–(house) 10:13, 5 November 2005 (EST)

I think I can guess how you did it, however Erig has already fixed it for me. Thanks anyway!

"Arm. Blocks 19-34 hp"

Where did you get that formula you're using to calculate how much damage your armor can block? Cause it's different from what I read on TibiaCity. I'd love to know which one is correct :)

Mathias (profile, talk) · Favelets · Formulas — 02:49, 9 January 2007 (PST)

It's part of the Template:Equips_Set.
--  Alreth »  Talk »  Contributions »   05:22, 9 January 2007 (PST)


The formula actually came from Arshalo. From his userpage you can find the thread where he posted all of his formulas for rune/spell damage, affects of amulets and rings, armor, etc.

I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the formula, but it seems to be very reasonable.

Compared to the TibiaCity formula, the one that Arshalo came up with is actually a little more restrictive. (.5 - .9x instead of .5 - 1x).

If you find that one is incorrect, please post your findings to my talk page. I am very interested in knowing this kind of stuff.

Re: Unnamed image Uploads

The images I uploaded have no ingame name yet (or no known one), I added them for the page Unused Sprites, as an index of sprites that are yet to be seen ingame. I opened a talk page for it aswell, Talk:Unused Sprites. The numbers those files have is the number they have in the sprites.

NPCs and stuff

Hi Alreth, Thanks for your contributions lately on NPC pictures. We are almost done to get all pictures. There are still 21 from the ~427 left which need to be done. Also thanks for deleting those double NPC pictures. There are a lot more of them which were already replaced a long time ago. I shall add the Image For Deletion template so you (or some other admin) can delete them.

Dear Alreth, I am Bennie and glad I became member of you, the administrator team.
As can be read here you, as an admin of a supported fansite, could represent TibiaWiki during private test servers. It would be very kind if you private messaged Erig (our boss) explaining who you are and telling your email address. Even if you don't want to use this opportunity, you could still message Erig so he knows that.
You have time until Christmas 2008, but the sooner the better!
Thanks in advance,

A Ghostly Woman

Hi, You uploaded a new version of Image:A Ghostly Woman.gif, with the name above it. Although we use names above NPCs as a standard, in this case it is impossible to see the name of this NPC in-game, because it is unreachable. I'm not sure if it is better to standardize all images, or reflect the in-game situation. What do you think? ^^ Bennie (talk ~ fellows) ^^ 18:33, 16 March 2009 (UTC)


Heylo Bennie! I think it would be good to always use name over the character for all NPCs to make it easier to distinguish NPCs from creatures. What's your opinion?
→  « Alreth »  « Talk »  « Contributions »  ← 02:21, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


Using the method to attain those pictures is the problem - because they can't be reached, users might see it as a way of us condoning the use of external programs (i.e 'floorhacks'..), I doubt it was taken by illegal means because of the quality of it, but users won't know your exact source and can only assume... -- Sixorish 13:08, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


There are third-party programs to choose random outfits and names, I don't know if it is illegal. More legal would be copy/pasting the characters of the name from other names and/or fill it in by yourself pixel by pixel. I don't think users would assume the images were taken illegally, but it could be. Actually I think it is better to not put those names there if you can't see them in-game. ^^ Bennie (talk ~ fellows) ^^ 14:39, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


I used an memory editor to edit my own name and outfit to look like the NPC. These changes only affects my own client, thought, so they don't give any advantages and probably aren't illegal.
Is there a way for us to ask the community, the "general player", about how they think about this? I think we (admins) have more knowledge about these programs etc than the average Joe has and we therefore think differently about the image compared to what they think.
