Parceling or Parcel?

I think that the term Parcel could be either To Parcel and the item Parcel itself. Therefore I suggest a disambiguation page for this.

On the other hand check this link: ThreadID_980960, is that supposed to be in the wiki?

My initial reaction is that I don't like disambiguation pages very much. As a software developer and web designer, you learn that people don't like to take extra steps to get to the information they want. In web design, if a user has to click more than 3 links to get to the information, they usually give up before they get there. Since it is far more common to use the word "Parcel" to refer to the item Parcel (similar to GS referring to Giant Spider or Giant Sword), I think that it should remain the way that it is now. To keep all of the information available, though, there should be some obvious link on the Parcel page that leads to an explanation of sending parcels.

Currently, the Mailbox page explains how to send parcels, so I would either have Parcelling redirect to Mailbox, or I would make a new page, Parcelling (or Sending Parcels), and have the Mailbox and Parcel pages link (not redirect) there.

I'll think about it a little bit before I make any changes. If you come up with another idea, or some other benefit/drawback, please let me know.

I edited the pages Parcel, Mailbox and Sending Parcels. Parcel and Mailbox now have only short descriptions of how to send parcels, and they have links to Sending Parcels for more details.

Nice! It is a lot better now, but still there is something missing, Sending Letters. Cameri 07:14, 1 February 2006 (CST)


Thanks for mentioning that, I hadn't thought of it. Now there's also a page for Sending Letters.

Rubies Quest

This is a separate quest from the family brooch; all it is, is 2 rubies in a small hole in Thais Ancient Temple guarded by a couple of draggies. Maybe call it Thais Rubies? Two Rubies?

I'll start a real questie page now; I think I'll use Two Rubies. Sounds nice :D

If you have a Calmera character, I'll show you where they are ;)

--Diggs.


That sounds fine. I just wanted to keep it all straight and as "unambiguous" as possible. You can see that we've had this discussion on this wiki before on the Quests Talk Page. Naming quests is not as simple or easy as I used to think.

Links out of Libraries?

Greetings,

I was curious re: thoughs on linking out of the library sections. See my post here Talk:Isle of the Kings Library

--Diggs.


Actually, I replied to your post on the Talk:Isle of the Kings Library page. I guess that it should have been posted here originally, since the question deals with more than just the Isle of the Kings Library page, but that's alright. Still effective, it's just a little more confusing this way.

hello/goodbye

I haven't been to this site in ages, but I came back to check up on it. I've left a message for everybody on my userpage. Try to spread the message to anyone who's still active. — Rune Farmer 03:38, 19 February 2006 (CST)


Sorry to see you go! Be sure to visit us every once in a while.

quest

Im so sorry man =/

I will do my best to post new things

Guy where I can post rumours?

Erig is a GM right? why he spoil quests?

thanks guy


1. Depends on the rumour. Most of these are appropriate to put on the page that they pertain to (ex: rumours about Orshabaal are on the Orshabaal page) If the rumour doesn't seem relevent or appropriate, it will be removed.

2. Yes, Erig is a GM, and he actually hasn't posted any of the quest spoilers, he only runs the Wiki. The contributers to the wiki have posted all of the spoilers. Additionally, it is not against Tibia Rules to spoil quests, but it generally reduces the value of the game and is "frowned upon" by CIP.

Troubleshooting Pages

Ok, finally getting started on these. The first one I want to write is "Adjusting Framerate"... can improve performace of the game, also of the computer, allowing players to open a browser and play. Question: best place to leap off to these? Add a bit at the bottom of the Help page pointing to a Tibia Troubleshooting Page? Thoughts?

Cheers, --Digger Smith 22:06, 26 February 2006 (CST)


Once the troubleshooting articles are pretty substantial, we will probably add a link to it from the Main Page. As far as linking from other articles... it would probably be best to link to the specific troubleshooting items that are relevent to the article.

It would probably be fine to link there from the Help page, too, since that's probably where people will start to look if they are having problems.

TibiaWiki en Español

I finally decided to start a Wiki for Tibia in spanish. I've gathered some people to help and I've been in touch with the staff of Tibiamx.com.mx


I have almost everything set (in the technical part). Now I need resources of information. Of course that this Wiki will be the first resource for many aspects, as the info itself as the metainfo of the Wiki (templates and such).

So, the question for you, as admin here, is:

Do you think that would be possible to take some of the information containted in this Wiki to used in the new Wiki in spanish?


We'll make a lot of translations from the english articles and I'd be great if we could take some of the Templates and (of course) the images aswell.


I already left a message to Erig, to ask him for permission.

I guess you'll have to get an official anser from Erig, but technically it should be fine. According to the Policy, and the page on Copyrights, there should not be any copywright information in the wiki to begin with. Any copywright information should have been submitted with permission, so for those items you will need to get permission from the copywright holder, but everything else is in the free or Public Domain, and can be used freely elsewhere.

I would still wait to get a reply from Erig if I was in your situation, and whether or not it is techinically allowed, it would be nice to respect his wishes about it.

I personally think that it would be a good idea to collaborate both directions. Use both wikis to fill in missing information in the other, but that will not be viable until they both have a comparable amount of information in them.

About the templates, you might want to distinguish your wiki from this one by making your own templates... sorta give the site a different look. I gurauntee that will make your wiki seem more like its own site, instead of a "spin-off" of this wiki.

Good luck with your new endeavor!

My edits

Sorry again and again and again...my english is not good very well...


It's ok. Keep trying. Just don't get offended if I need to change your updates.

Level for Quests

I see that you have changed the lvl in some Quests from 'No requirement' to '0'.

Is this alright? I mean, technically speaking, there's no lvl 0 and I think is more clear with the 'No requirement' message.

--Kaio 10:42, 28 February 2006 (CST)


The reason I changed them was becuase of the list template I was working on. The words "No Requirement" were kinda messing up how it looked. I think everyone will still know what it means, and now it works well for the lists. Check out the Quests page to see what I mean.

Yeah, I got it. Now have sense. Looks great. :)
