For |gems, I'm wondering if we shouldn't use comma delineated list items, as we already do for the classes. --Sky (t · c) 04:03, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

k. I can't get the stupid thing to trim off the leading space like it does for classes and races, somehow. --k_d3 19:39, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
Fixed. Now works using comma-spaces as delimiters. Had to resort to {{socket2}}, but we get new css out of it now and the template's simpler as a result. --k_d3 21:57, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Another problem I've thought of: For the instances where tooltips are currently being transcluded (such as in Lootbox), they're going to spread their semantic information to those pages. I'm fairly certain this is undesirable behavior, and am currently looking for documentation on the proper behavior of the semantic properties, to see if we can avoid this problem (:3). --Sky (t · c) 03:52, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

The plan (well, my plan, at least) is to update at least itembox/item/whatever else we can to use the semantic data instead of blindly transcluding. Hopefully as soon as T2 lands. I dunno about lootbox/transclusions in general. I would really prefer to not resort to the hack we're already using for home/away mode in tooltip. If it comes to that, oh well. --k_d3 03:59, August 12, 2010 (UTC)
I hate the hack, same as you, and I suspect we won't need it (speaking of item, see Template:Item/dev; only thing I haven't been able to do with it is get the icon to show up with a simple |icon=). The reason we have lootbox (transclusions in general, I suppose), is because it's nice to see the item face-to-face with another item at times (of course, transclusions date back to before I was even editing). Sometimes it's even necessary for separate transclusions, as with Atiesh. I'll continue to hunt, of course, possibly even submit a bug if I don't find anything useful. --Sky (t · c) 04:05, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Okies, this template is new to me. But to make it work, one of two things has to happen:

  1. Someone writes a script that converts Tooltip to this in a reliable fashion.
    • May need to include removal of (World of warcraft *quality* *slot* items) categories
  2. We instead use a script that shovels everything using tooltip into a bin and closes the lid on it, assuming that when Cataclysm goes live everything is going to need to be readdressed anyway.

In either case, flagging everything for reverification via Category:Outdated articles or perhaps "Items Outdated by Cataclysm" seems appropriate. Thoughts? Have people been discussing the transition somewhere else? --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:07, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

1a: Yes. That's how it's going down.
1b: We should remove the quality based categories completely, but not the slot categories e.g. go from WoW quality slot items to WoW slot items (for armor; for weapons, reduce the categories to WoW weapon items and WoW ranged weapon items), and leave quality/exact type to be a semantic item rather than a categorical item.
2: Probably not. We've already got some of the items on wiki now, so we need to do some moving around, is all. I don't see a reason to keep the old items, though it would be prudent to tag them with the appropriate template from the {{patched}} family (and specify the old stats there). For reverification, not sure what to do. --Sky (t · c) 03:34, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
