Regarding duplicated books

I've seen this mentioned before, but I made changes to Template:Infobox Book and Template:Infobox Book/List, now multiple book graphics can be used, the books text is the exact same, the only difference is the location and book graphic, which can now be merged on the one page SO we've been merging the duplicate pages, we're also marking the redirects for deletion, it seems hundreds of books have redirects, I'm not quite sure why but they aren't needed, so...

TavinBot

Heya Whitelaces
The spoiler is working great! I noticed how you use it for your archive tocs, very clever ;) I guess now TibiaWiki has become Twibkia I also have to modernize. Can you tell me how to create the bots you've written? They're really interesting and useful :) --Edwin de waterman 12:33, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


Hey Edwin. I wrote the bots in C#.NET, but you can really use any programming language.

Bots are just applications that edit the wiki. Here's a good starting point for you: Wikipedia:Creating_a_bot.

Fire Swords and Hellfire Fighters

Why is it that when you search Fire Sword, It's said to be dropped by the Hellfire Fighter, but Fire Sword isn't listed under its ( Hellfire Fighter )loot? --Heavenly Emperor 20:26, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


Apparently, when TIBIA-Trigger added hellfire fighter to the list, he forgot to add it to the Hellfire Fighter page.

If it's accurate, then you can go ahead and fix it.

This could be done automatic, with a bot or something. Maybe.

Monaco Skin

Hi there, I'm angies with the gaming team. We are switching over all the default skins (for anon users) to our new skin "Monaco" this week and wanted to check in with you to see if 1) that was cool with your community and 2) If there are any customizations you want help with. You can see documentation for Monaco customization Here and you can check out how these wikis are using Monaco too: w:c:starwars w:c:dofus and w:c:ffxi. I wasn't sure if there was a community discussion place to post this message so please feel free to move it somewhere else angies@fandom (talk) 01:17, 4 April 2008 (UTC)


Hi angies, I apologize for the delay in my reply. I have been busy with some big RL changes. Anyway, I see that the Monaco skin has already been implemented, and I have no issue with it. I think it is an improvement in functionality, but I see how some users may not like the appearance. At any rate, thank you for seeking our input, even though I was absent.

Violation of Count robin

Warning Icon Yellow
The user Count robin (talkcontribsbot contribsblock logblock) has vandalized the page Haggler's Hangout 4b (Shop)‎. Please review their edits and take appropriate actions if necessary.

Sincerely,
User:Bennie


To add, he also made 3 pages not related to Tibia at all. Woen, Katy'livingstone and Galecop.

Temahk 12:08, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Those pages were actually loosely related to Tibia, but they appear to be some addition to the Tibia mythology. I deleted the pages, but if he can substantiate that they came from books in-game or some other real source, they can be re-added.

About the page haggler's hideout, it was just an incomplete page about an in-game house. I see that Bennie already fixed the article, but I would not consider it to be vandalism.

Rareness

Hai Whitelaces

Some time ago, I created the page Rareness, for I think there should be a standardized format for the different levels of rareness of items. I made another edit just now, and I think the current rates for rareness are quite good. Some people have also contributed on the Talk page. Now my proposal is introducing these figures to all creatures in Tibia. In Talk pages, people could discuss (maybe even add statistics of several hunts) to determine how rare items are. That way, people will always know what to expect if a certain item is labeled as 'Very rare', for example.

Daken Thundermaster 18:10, 22 April 2008 (UTC)


I like the idea of standardizing how we list things, but this one is particularly difficult to enforce. Feel free to try and keep the loot lists accurate, but don't get discouraged when people seemingly ignore what you have worked on. Keep contributing!

Need Some Help with a Few Things

Winter Wolf


Hello Whitelaces,


I was wondering if you could help me with a few things,


First I think we should move the Wyvern to the Reptile Misc Catagory, since it makes more sense than the Lizard Catagory.

And then I think we can remove the please delete this page tempalte form the Shenlong Sword page, I posted an offical picture from the www.tibia.com showing the Shenlong on the talk page to clear everything up.

If you could help with these small matters when you have some time I would greatly appreciate it. ^_^


Regards,


Jake Command Wolf

I understand you are confused, but according to tibia.com Wyverns are lizards. I quote: Some scholars consider the Wyvern as a distant cousin of the dragons. This is far from truth though. The Wyvern we know nowadays are the result of constant breeding of some significantly smaller, only mildly poisonous flying lizards. retrieved from wyvern page About the Shenlong Sword, your picture only proves the sprite exists. It doesn't prove it's actually an ingame item.

^^  º Bennie º  ¤ Talk ¤  º Credits º  ^^ 05:10, 6 May 2008 (UTC)


Winter Wolf

Yes, Yes, but they are reptiles more than lizards, Wyverns are in no way dircetly related to the Lizard race, and now than we have broader categories to categorize them it makes more sense to but them in the reptile misc category, as it looks rather silly where it is.

And as far as the Shenlong, we dont need to delete it, if I may take a quote from myself on the Shenlong talk page [1]:

"Since the Shelong can be seen in an offical screenshot, as far as I can see it is a real weapon, weather or not its named the Shenlong Sword, if its looted from an Undead Dragon, if its stats are what are stated, or if it was ever looted is all up in the air, but I can say for certain that the Shenlong is a real weapon."

I rest my case. ^_^

Administrater Issue

Hi Whitelaces,

In the discussion about this here Erig left the task for you to add/remove administrators since you are a bureaucrat. You lacked rights to remove admins and needed to contact wikia staff. I wondered if you had done this. There are 2 admins who weren't active for over 1 year, User:Diggersmith and User:Rune Farmer. It makes sense you can't remove admins, if I may quote from here, They are able to add users to the 'administrator' group, but not remove them. If you aren't that busy in real-life, could you sort this out please? If you won't read this in the next few weeks I'll ask it to erig.

Thanks in advance,

^^  º Bennie º  ¤ Talk ¤  º Credits º  ^^ 14:46, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Your character damage template...

Hey, just checked your template and i see a few problems...


i have a lvl 43 pally with skills 80/67.

I have max mana of 575 and it only shows 560.

Also i have noticed that the Max Weapon damage is not correct. Its says that max Distance damage is 250, but i have hit a max of 283 so far with a weapon that has a weaker attack than the one i have stated.

I use royal spear:

This item is in the Weapons class. Royal Spear It can only be wielded properly by players of level 25 or higher. Attributes: Atk: 35, Def: 0, 3 Sq. range, stackable.

I have stated that i use Enchated spear:

This item is in the Weapons class. Enchanted Spear It can only be wielded properly by players of level 42 or higher. Attributes: Atk: 38, Def: 0, 4 Sq. range, stackable

Maybe you could also add attack spells to the template too?

I think it may already have some for mages, but the pallys spells such as divine missile and divine caldera would be cool to add if possible.

Anyways if i can help you with gaining information to use for the template, such as max damage and things like that i will be happy to help.


Contact me on mez_01@hotmail.co.uk

Cheers Thorage...

None creature category

Why is it that there a create list for none in the creature list scroll box to the right of the creature infobox. If anything why is it called none?Craggles


It took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about.

It looks like that is an unexpected result of changing the way our templates work in order to improve performance (transcluding the template from a sub-page and separating it from the documentation). I think I know how to fix it, but my edit is being blocked by the spam filter.

I'm trying to send a message right now to Wikia to see what we can do.

-- Magnus Frater te spectat
--  Whitelaces †  Talk †  -- 13:02, 14 May 2008 (UTC)


I used a different solution for e.g. the Wyvern page. Adding the code secondarytypewill fix it. This is of course by default 'none'which creates a creature class called none.

How do you create a new page?

Winter Wolf

Hello aging Whitelaces,


I know to you as an admin this may be a silly question but are normal users like myself able to create new pages on the Main Page? I have looked high and low but have not found a help page on the general Wiki page about acuttaly how to create a new page.


I'm asking because I wanted to create a page called "Norse Set" since there are many norse themed weapons since the 2007 Winter Update, more than enough for a set.


If you could shed some light on this subject I would be very grateful. ^_^


Regards,


Jake Command Wolf

Bow The Wolf Paladin Wolf Tooth Chain


I'm not an administrator but i know how to create a new page :P you just have to write on the browser "Norse Set" and then click on the message that says "create this page"
Ghazbaran  Rafailo Sagara   Talk  Contriutions  Morgaroth 00:23, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

To then get it linked on the front page you'd need to ask an admin like whitelaces to put it there
Craggles

---

These guys are right, Jake. To make a page, the easiest way is to simply point your browser to the URL where the page would be, then it will allow you to "Edit" and create the page.

Another way would be to go to the Sets page and add a link to the article you want to create. When you click on that new link, it will let you create the new page.

You are correct, craggles. I haven't updated my to do list for a while, and I've been very busy with RL since my wife had a baby.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, though! I'll go ahead and update it real quick.

Creature Images:
Is there anyway of creating a template that will automatically assign the same categories as in it's creature counterpart?

Pictures

Hello

I'm quite new here, I have made some edits on wiki already(I hope I did it right). However even after reading what I think is all the guides I still have several questions. For example I'm unsure about how to upload a picture of a NPC. Is there any way I could contact you that is easier than "user talk". Or is there any more detailed guide about how to add pictures from the game? Hope you can help me! Since I asked Craggles, and he didn't know either.
