Category on A Father's Burden Quest

Hi there! I saw your edit on this page and wondered why you added a category. The reason I ask is because the revision before yours has the same category that you added. In fact, all quests have the category Category:Mainland Quests by default unless Template:Infobox Quest receives |rookgaardquest as a parameter. Was this quest not appearing in some list?

Feel free to respond here or on my talk page, whichever you prefer. Thanks, -- Sixorish 22:29, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Generally, all our categories of items, objects, quests, NPCs, etc. come from templates. See Template:Infobox Item, for example, on the bottom of the page source you see this:

<!-- Categories -->{{#ifeq:{{NAMESPACE}}||{{#if:{{{itemclass|}}}|[[Category:{{{itemclass|}}}]]}}<!-- -->{{#if:{{{primarytype|}}}|[[Category:{{{primarytype|}}}]]}}<!-- -->{{#if:{{{secondarytype|}}}|[[Category:{{{secondarytype|}}}]]}}<!-- -->{{#if:{{{hands|}}}|[[Category:{{{hands}}}-Handed Weapons]]}}<!-- -->{{#if:{{{type|}}}|[[Category:{{{type}}} Weapons]]}}<!-- -->{{#if:{{{hands|}}}|{{#if:{{{type|}}}|[[Category:{{{hands}}}-Handed {{{type}}} Weapons]]<!-- -->[[Category:Weapons]]}}}}<!-- -->{{#switch:{{LC:{{{writable|no}}}}}|yes|yes.=[[Category:Writable Items]]}}<!-- -->{{#switch:{{LC:{{{enchantable|no}}}}}|yes.|yes=[[Category:Enchantable Items]]}}<!-- -->{{#switch:{{LC:{{{enchanted|no}}}}}|yes.|yes=[[Category:Enchanted Weapons]]}}<!-- -->{{#if:{{{implemented|}}}|[[Category:Version {{{implemented}}} Implementations]]}}<!-- -->[[Category:Items]]}}</includeonly>{{#if:{{{hidetemplate|}}}||{{items}}}}|{{Infobox_Item/{{{List}}}|name={{{name|}}}|flavortext={{{flavortext|}}}|itemclass={{{itemclass|}}}|primarytype={{{primarytype|}}}|secondarytype={{{secondarytype|}}}|weight={{{weight|}}}|value={{{value|}}}|npcvalue={{{npcvalue|}}}|npcprice={{{npcprice|}}}|npcvaluerook={{{npcvaluerook|}}}|npcpricerook={{{npcpricerook|}}}|droppedby={{{droppedby|}}}|buyfrom={{{buyfrom|}}}|sellto={{{sellto|}}}|implemented={{{implemented|}}}|notes={{{notes|}}}|stackable={{{stackable|}}}|enchantable={{{enchantable|}}}|edible={{{edible|}}}|regenseconds={{{regenseconds|}}}|writable={{{writable|}}}|writechars={{{writechars|}}}|levelrequired={{{levelrequired|}}}|vocrequired={{{vocrequired|}}}|attack={{{attack|}}}|defense={{{defense|}}}|defensemod={{{defensemod|}}}|elementattack={{{elementattack|}}}|resist={{{resist|}}}|hands={{{hands|}}}|type={{{type|}}}|range={{{range|}}}|armor={{{armor|}}}|volume={{{volume|}}}}}}}}}

The bold part is what defines an article to be of a "club weapon", based on what each page using that template 'tells' it. The Amber Staff, for your example, is treated as a club weapon because of this template call on he page Amber Staff:

| primarytype = Club Weapons

..the categorization of which you can see in the template's code:


I hope that answers your question regarding categories. Now on to the other concern:

The Template:Infobox Quest page uses the following code to categorize quest articles:

<!--Categorization -->[[Category:Quest {{#ifeq:{{PAGENAME}}|{{{name}}}|Overview|Spoiling}} Pages]]{{#if:{{{name|}}}||[[Category:Quest Articles for Maintenance]]}}{{#ifeq:{{PAGENAME}}|{{{name}}}|[[Category:{{#switch:{{LC:{{{rookgaardquest|no}}}}}|yes|yes.=Rookgaard|Mainland}} Quests]]{{#switch:{{{type|}}}|exchange=[[Category:Exchange Quests]]|addon=[[Category:Addon Quests]]|outfit=[[Category:Outfit Quests]]}}}}}}

So based on your information, i.e. "Quest Overview page in the Quest Spoiler category", the quest article's page name is not the same as its "name", as per the {{#ifeq:{{PAGENAME}}|{{{name}}}|[[Category:{{#switch:{{LC:{{{rookgaardquest|no}}}}}|yes|yes.=Rookgaard|Mainland}} Quests]] ...}} ( "if PAGENAME is equivalent to {{{name}}}, then put it in Category:Rookgaard Quests if "rookgaardquest" has a value of yes or "Category:Mainland Quests" otherwise.

I peered over and didn't see a problem with the categories, but there is indeed a problem, which I'll address for you :p. The problem is that, as I said, the name is not the same as the page name: the server interprets the two apostrophes as different entities. Actually, ' in page names is equivalent to &#39; (i.e. a HTML entity).

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I will fix it in just a sec. By the way, feel free to remove the code above, it's just for illustrative purposes but I can see why it would be annoying to have cluttering your talk page. -- Sixorish 01:29, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Your screenshots in Witches' Cauldron Quest

Hi. You have added screenshots there. But i'm interested in this one mount.
How did you earned that if it isn't present from santa? Or... where is santa?
Leree 15:19, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

i know. I did it but dunno how to get it from santa ;p I didn't saw him ingame.
Leree 09:28, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

So... could you tell me how to obtain it before christmas? Where did you took this screenshot? It was test server or it's obtainable?
 « Leree »  « Talk »  18:02, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

Alright then ;s I thought it was obtainable by different way.
It was controversial a bit for many players. Thanks for explaining anyway.

Hey, I see you edited the Ghostship page in May 2014, changing the probability of getting there from 10% to 1-2%. I have not tested myself since 2009, but this thread suggests your stats are not correct. How exactly did you come to your results? -- Bennie (talk ~ fellows) 19:48, January 22, 2015 (UTC)
