== Random Page Copy ==
  +
Hi, Fandyllic! I just happened upon the page [[Flamethrower (2)]], and was confused because it's exactly like the page [[Flamethrower]]. I checked on wowhead, and there are 2 different pages for this ability, with different ability numbers assigned to them, but that's the only difference between them, and I'm not sure if there really are 2 different identical ones in the game. So, should I copy what wowhead did when I say which battle pets use each ability copy, or should the second one be deleted and the battle pets assigned to each one be merged together? Thanks!

Comments to Fandyllic

Response to Would you like to be a patroller?

Hello Fandyllic,

Thank you for the kind offer, i am going to decline as even though there's certain benefits (Such as the rollback rights you mentioned) i don't feel they make much of a difference compared to a normal user.

Cheers,

TessaVarzi (talk) 01:30, August 17, 2016 (UTC)

Hi there Fandyllic,
Was wondering what you meant by "I was annoyed at patrollng your patrol edits"? Are you referring to the ones i put on your talk page to let you know about them?

What do you think about this change an anon made? Link: [5]

I had reverted it because Naisha had died in Warcraft 3 so logically there was no guarantee of her ever coming back.

Nor would it make a lot of sense to bring back a character who was already dead not to mention she wasn't that important of a character to begin with (At least in my opinion).

Likely Kael'thas' alignment was specified likely only in the Manual of Monsters, so that's what it should be unless someone finds a different source. They can't just change it because they feel it's changed. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 26 Oct 2017 12:20 PM Pacific

MMO Game Page Footer

Just FYI, I put a request on the submissions page to lobby that 'WildStar Online' get put back on the list. I said: "reason for proposing: there is room on list without another line wrap, and its still integrated in the actual game footer logo. of the active community in-game, there are still a lot of cross game WoW/WS players". Wikia Gaming, Gaming Footers #MMOs.

I see now that I probably should have actually stopped to read the submission rules first, before I added that. Regardless, just wanted to let you know esp. since the joined WoW WildStar logo for the game footer. I still play and there's a good deal of free WoW <--> WildStar migration for users back and forth or people who play both. Celess22 (talk) 02:01, January 18, 2017 (UTC)

Problem Template

Glad I got your message. Thank you. The reason I did it that because the NPCbox template looked quite different and a bit awkward. I don't know why.--Spenpiano (talk) 19:18, March 14, 2017 (UTC)

Just a heads up

The article you deleted called Glyph of the Dire Stable documents an actual item in WoW Legion.

I just got done editing it but it's fine i'm not upset or anything. If you want you can restore the article with the following text i had written up. Also as a side note, two of the items in the below text (Sallow Parchment and Roseate Pigment did not have an available icon here on WoWWiki. Is it possible that could be fixed somehow?

It's your call.

Updating Icons

Hi! I’ve been trying to update/add some of the icons on a few pages where the icons either didn’t show up or were wrong, and I realized that for a few pages, like Draenor Safari, the correct icons that display in the game, which should be inv_pet_achievement_collectallwild_draenor for this example, cannot be found on Wowhead (It uses the Pandaria version of the icon, which is also given for Broken Isles Safari), and Google got no results either. I tried taking a screenshot of the icon in the in-game achievement list, but it is lower quality and looks slightly different from the other icon images. Is there a better way to get these icons? -RBoy (talk) 20:28, April 8, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, I hadn't realized they were the same as the icons for Outland and Pandaria. I'm not sure why they had seemed different to me earlier... Thank you for checking it, though. RBoy (talk) 18:26, April 10, 2017 (UTC)

Pet Battle Dungeons

This is what I found on Pet Battle Dungeons. Let me know if there's anything I should add. I plan on adding specific pages for the quests and dungeon I referenced in that page soon. Also, should I link the pages for Serr'ah and Lio the Lioness to new pages with (Dalaran) after them, since these are NPCs in Dalaran rather than the garrison menagerie, or should I just add a new section to the existing pages about their additional location? -RBoy (talk) 19:08, April 20, 2017 (UTC)

I would greatly appreciate you fixing things that I do in order to make them more appropriate to the general form of the wiki. I do hope that my contributions will be a net positive, but I will openly admit that I am not entirely adept at utilizing the wiki editor and knowing which infobox goes where, and so on and so on. Thank you for respecting a newbie, and if you have any links related to tutorials in utilizing this editor and how I can know what to do and where and when, please feel free to drop me a line. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Respectfully your servant,

Performance Issue with page

Hey Fandyllic,

There's an issue with one of the pages on this wiki - WoWWiki:WoW_Icons/Icon_List/Images. Simply put the technical strain of displaying all those images is often causing timeout errors on our servers.

As such, I need to request we split the page up or otherwise significantly pare it down. I'm not clear what you guys use it for, but I'm happy to help if needed in whatever solution works best for the wiki. Please let me know ASAP. If I don't hear back in the next few days, I will be forced to just delete the page (please note I am also contacting Celess22 about this topic if you wish to coordinate). --DaNASCAT@fandom (help forum | blog) 15:40, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, we can split it up... it's mostly just for archival purposes. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 16 May 2017 8:01 AM Pacific
Heres why it broke User_talk:DaNASCAT#Images page. This is something you guys probably really want to look into and fix. Ill see about splitting them but the Wikia image rendering looks broken and all of the delay load maybe be broken. Celess22 (talk) 16:57, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Current Resolution

Ok it won't thrash the server anymore. Please see the comments on User_talk:DaNASCAT#Images page details. This is basically an issue with how the image loading changed. To remove the Wikia regression on the Wikia side you need to check to see if the image is even going to be displayed. There must be other pages or Wikia page wrapper content where this would hurt a good deal, especially for those who aren't logged in and are getting all the ads. Celess22 (talk) 18:45, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Separate Pages

Hi. There is a difference between an energy and a substance so I'm just wondering if I should create a separate page for fel "the substance".--Necrophotic (talk) 18:12, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

No. Since just Fel and Fel energy redirects to fel magic, we don't need a whole bunch of pages. Either way, I'd rather see other lore pages filled in than having a couple giant lore pages. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 31 May 2017 1:38 PM Pacific

MapID

Now is a bad time to decorate the page, as I'm am still working on it. I've left several notes in comments on the page and edit comments. I need the performance on save of the page to remain stable also so I can measure as I add sections. The extra templates or in-lines with Lua calls skew my results. Thanks. :) Celess22 (talk) 18:36, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't realize you were pulling from that page as well as putting info on it. You should probably put a warning notice at the top. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 16 Aug 2017 10:40 AM Pacific

Yes that's a good idea, ill put a marker at the top; I should have done that. Yeah I'm working down the page replacing MapID sections now that InstanceMapID is done. I figured since was already setup to do it may as well roll through the other one, and it's good to find bugs. I'm using the old lists to validate as I go down. I'm on the sections with non-traditional continents now, though I see you were able to add rows under the data driven part with no issues, which is the spirit of how it was supposed to work out. I'm blending in the same way unaccounted for ones into the list the same way. I thought if I did both pages InstanceMapID and MapID, together they might be a nice reference for everyone on the rest of the wiki for regular work. Sorry thanks. Celess22 (talk) 18:46, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

Is possible that I'm also grumpy this morning ;) Heres the note I put:

<-- In-process for this one working out final issues with CommonData.
Please don't change lists or I lose track.
Normally this won't be issue using data, but I have to go extra slow because I'm making adjustments to
the CommonData code as I go, and have to look up flags and other things for the first time for WoW data.
Thanks for showing all of the section markers and 3 the presumably instance (real game map) sections
I'll put a note on Fandy's page when done. -->

Celess22 (talk) 18:58, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

Hmmm. I don't see your notes about not changing anywhere on MapID, it's history, or talk page... Where exactly did you put your comments/notes about not changing lists? --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 16 Aug 2017 11:12 AM Pacific

I put it as a comment at the top of the page, re: "You should probably put a warning notice at the top." "Yes that's a good idea, ill put a marker at the top; I should have done that." It was placed as illustrated above in html comment at the top. Sorry for any confusion. Celess22 (talk) 19:15, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

Maybe you are questioning my previous notes? Here below were are some of my previous notes if that's what you were asking about. I'm ok with any of it, and it was all fine and I liked the changes.

Yeah, I guess you haven't noticed the tons of Patch 7.3 PTR images I've been uploading (only about half of what I've captured so far!).
I guess the Blizz API doesn't expose PTR data? Good to see latest expansion stuff show up, though. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 16 Aug 2017 1:59 PM Pacific

No my nose has been down. I need one of those old green tinted accountants visors to complete the picture, all kinds of reflections and glares are starting to bother me anyway. No, it just depends on which set I draw from. I'm on GR, which even if had the other data, the tables that get presented are the current GR version ones. I could go PTR, but I think it would add to the confusion since I'm validating against all of the GR data out on the various sites and wikis.

I think it will be a nice proof to drop the 7.3 over the known working 7.2.5 set, with edit note marking it as 7.3. Ironically I could be automating the image uploads instead lol, but one will end up driving the other in the future maybe. Probably better to have in wiki data with real file names in the long term to give the poor souls toiling away with images more help in a wiki fashion they can control themselves.

So easy, info right at your finger tips, will make you cry.

I'll let that stew for a second. Now keep in mind you don't have to render tables only with the data. You can use it for anything. You can make CSVs in < pre> to help people with uploading wiki images or resources, or use it for other wiki things or facilities, like any #if or #switch, or even with other existing Lua tables.
So for example if someone kept the names similar or a superset of the real name, all of the Maps for all of the WoW Maps would match already. Basically what was going on before was that someone was having to manually match what was effectively a misnamed map that was straight out of the game data itself, but just with a changed name. Even if someone made up their own CommonData data, fi that's what happens to happen with Witcher, you can see how this starts to all line up. Now if you extrapolate across other things, like POI, POI type images, POI locations, NPC locations, NPCs, Items, etc.. the new options available for adding things and features it becomes pretty pervasive, what could be done or maintained with fewer people. And this also possibly anchors down Lua toward your earlier concern. Celess22 (talk) 22:36, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

Question Regarding Use Of Images/Videos etc From Private Servers

Hi Fandyllic,

I noticed your reply to User:FeruEnzeru about the use of images, videos etc here on WoWWiki and was hoping for a bit of clarification in regards to the following about Private Servers...

"Blizzard is even more generous in that they generally give permission as long as the use is not to promote things that violate their terms of use like bots, exploits, guides that charge money, phishing ads, or private servers."

In regards to the word "Promote things" is this referring to images, video etc that name and or try to get people to join a Private Server? Or is that in general I.E No images, videos etc from Private Servers are allowed on WoWWiki?

Just trying to understand what our stance is here on WoWWiki.

TessaVarzi (talk) 02:59, August 20, 2017 (UTC)

Unless there is some official Blizzard statement giving a private server permission to operate (which there has never been, as far as I know), you can't promote it on WoWWiki. If the mention is part of a topic appropriate news story, it is okay, but that needs to be evaluated case-by-case. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 20 Aug 2017 9:41 AM Pacific

I am knowing what "Hi" and "Hello" means in Orcish, not Eredun.

It is "Mu" and "Mok'ra", the two words translated as hi and hello.

Hi, Mr. Fan. I'd just kept the B-L Dictionary stuff ON HOLD yesterday. I want to let you and the others know about this.

If so. I'll be joining another wiki than WoWWiki very importantly.

Tabber

Which wiki pages as examples? I see pages where looks like someone swapped {{Tabber for <tabber>. The former is actual curated Tabber we have, the other later one is the fairly quirky native Wikia extension. Like on http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/Warlock#Races Celess22 (talk) 23:59, October 18, 2017 (UTC)

Something changed with Wikia tabber extension that causes a conflict now when both are used, or maybe just <tabber is broken. If you fix the pages to just use the less quirky one the {{Tabber like I just changed Warlock to use then it works fine just like the Tabber template example. I could redo this in Lua and would be pretty tight. The instructions are in Tabber. In the Warlock case I just changed the Races section and then the whole page worked. I wrapped any section that has markup that normally cant be passed well to a template in <option section, as explain in tabber template.

Later ill see about creating more isolation or fixing this better. Regular tabber is very old and has a lot of JQuery conflicts with other things. Celess22 (talk) 00:35, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

I redo pages using your Warlock example. There is growing evidence that the upgraded port of the tabber tag is bad. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 18 Oct 2017 4:45 PM Pacific
You mean the Template version is bad or was the tabber extension updated and is bad? Celess22 (talk) 00:46, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

Also I changed some of the start up code and renamed a bunch of things that might help. Its probably code they changed that started just rewriting anything that looked like tabber rather than using their specific triggers, making duplicates. The template tabber has remained the same since 2013? O.o Celess22 (talk) 01:16, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

All fixed. Just some duplicate Tabber coding from Common.js that was interfering. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 15:57, October 19, 2017 (UTC)
Woot! Glad it was easy. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 19 Oct 2017 9:53 AM Pacific
That code, circa 2013, allowed half the custom site code to work at the time, due to unresolvable JQuery dependency conflicts with that version of the tabber Wikia extension and other Wikia code. The module was not duplicate code, but it was part of inane amount gymnastics to get the popup TOC and others to work smoothly, after some other Wikia change back in the day. I seem to remember a similar casting of asparagus and trying to duck out of the way when TOC went down, but I had nothing really to do with that either. Unless the extension was changed and updated the gymnastics were necessary. I am pretty sure I did try to file some bug reports or do some posts on the dev site, or at least littered someone's talk page with a wall of text about it. I can't say how long it was true without scouring the extension dev and release history, that the Wikia tabber extension stayed in that bad state, maybe up until a few days ago, or a few years ago. It's also still possible that other parts of other things may still have same issues.
Raylan's change needed to be fixed, which did A few minutes ago. JS crashing startup, which probably looked like tabber code was disabled and all was well, but most things were down. I did a revert first to make sure nothing got fat-fingered. Celess22 (talk) 20:03, October 19, 2017 (UTC)
It's odd that the change to js "fixed" the issue with the tabs. Almost nothing has changed, excepting the reversion, in the meantime - so was this an issue of cache after the internal rollout of the extension change? What fixed it? Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:26, October 20, 2017 (UTC)

Fix

Haha! No problem. I'll have to find a facepalming Sylvanas or something for next year's avatar. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 18:02, October 19, 2017 (UTC)

Which fix? Celess22 (talk) 20:04, October 19, 2017 (UTC)
Okay, I guess Raylan's fix wasn't a full fix... now all fixed? --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 19 Oct 2017 1:13 PM Pacific

MaxXPCoin confusion

Trying to figure out what's wrong with the MaxXPCoin template. Any chance you can message me via BNet or jump on chat here? My BTag is on my talk page. AlexSUCF (talk · contr) 21:12, October 20, 2017 (UTC)

Interesting...I checked some Cata, MoP, and WoD quests on one of my 110 toons and they all seemed to give the standard amount of gold just without any XP (quests that normally rewarded both gold and XP just had the XP dropped). The very few quests I found that only rewarded XP for a toon at quest-level now reward a handful of silver (seems to be a 0.0403 conversion rate, but I'm only looking at a very small selection of quests). Legion quests at 110 don't have a conversion because they (almost) all scale with level. Was this template working properly during WoD? AlexSUCF (talk · contr) 22:01, October 20, 2017 (UTC)
OK, so I think it would be best to eliminate the template at this point. Most of the quests that had given gold at max level were removed in Cata, and the few remaining can be entered manually. I just checked some Duskwood quests (I was working on revamping Duskwood's quest pages when I made the template) and nothing there gives any gold beyond the standard reward. AlexSUCF (talk · contr) 22:19, October 20, 2017 (UTC)
Was about to say to just take it out of the infobox. Well, now that its been deprecated I guess I'll start looking around and seeing what I can help with. Any suggestions on where to start?

OK, so I fixed my signature and will start looking into the pages to update. Looks like a long road ahead!

Legion Assaults

OK, so I did some work on the Legion Assaults page, but now I think it needs to be split into 5 pages (one overview page and four zone pages) because with just Azsuna's assault information it became very large. Also, now that it has been revamped, I think the Legion Assaults on the Broken Isles page can be scrapped as the other page already has all the same information. Thoughts?
Cheesecaker (talk · contr) 22 Oct 2017 12:05 AM EST

Also, do we want a page for each individual assault demon boss, or can we throw them all under a single page Legion commanders? I know they each have their own model and such, but that's a lot of very short, stub-like articles. Also also, I need to learn to not hit "Publish" before finishing my thought process on your talk page. Off to bed now...

Response

Hello there. I am reaching out in response to the note you left on my page regarding the gold guides.

Wanted to verify since you also said cannot post gold guides before I did anything else. 


Thanks

Hey. I am one of the bureaucrats of the Polish WoW Wiki. We want to have Polish interwiki in your articles. Adding them manually would take too much time.

WoW Map

Just a heads up that the WoW Map update to the new version is starting. This should cause a temporary disruption in wow maps functionality on the wiki pages. Ill report when complete. Thanks :) --- Celess22 (talk) 16:45, January 18, 2018 (UTC)

I'm about half-way through. I'm having to use this account for a bit until my other one is fixed. I picked the existing (old) WoWWiki theme in preferences to make sure what was going on with the current state of the CSS, and it caused every page to have a 500 error for that account on WoWWiki. I've submitted a ticket but, it may be a while. I may need this account to get bumped temporarily so I can fix CSS and JS, and move pages properly. I had already updated the JS and Template:Map when this happened so things are in the middle. At the moment I can't edit the CSS. Thanks :) --- Celess22Bot (talk) 19:54, January 18, 2018 (UTC)

Ok I fixed it by hacking the form post for preferences. You have to 1) login, then watch it go 500 error. Then 2) go to http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Preferences?useskin=monobook which will cause the page to actually render. Then 3) change the "Layout" setting to monobook, or the screwed-up looking "&lt;new-look&gt;" option. The preferences form post itself now needs the skin override as well, to not be the error skin, or the post page generation that actually changes settings will fail internally and never be able to change settings. So 4) inspect the web page in the browser near the outside of an edit box or label, 5) scroll up to the outer "<form" tag. 6) edit and append the form "action" attribute to add "?useskin=monobook" to the end of the post url. 7) Go back the browser then hit the "Save" button on the form as normal. The page should now reload on its own without a 500 error. 8) Click on the WoWWiki logo to see if the next page (a page with no appended theme override) works. 9) all done. --- Celess22 (talk) 20:35, January 18, 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for the suggestion though.

Zones by level

Howdee Winky

With the zone level scaling changes, I went and sandboxed a revamp of the Zones by level page here. Just wanted to run it by you before I did such a massive change. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:13, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

I'm also combining all the info from the various "Zones" pages onto this one, that way there's only one page to update rather than three Tongueout. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 18:43, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
Sounds good - I'm going to polish it a little more and add more of the introductory text from the other pages as well. Probably pop it in there by the end of the week. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 19:04, February 14, 2018 (UTC)

Template types

Just an FYI - I'm going around and tweaking templates' types that aren't showing at all in mobile. Hopefully I can tweak them to come through Tongueout. If you run across something that appears "mis-typed", it was probably me finding a way to get it to work. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 22:48, February 21, 2018 (UTC)

I hope you're using your staff influence to get the devs to realize the template type system is flawed in that it doesn't clearly tell you when it will hide stuff on mobile when used. I even had to edit the help page awhile ago, because no one would even put the info there. It should at least have the info in red or bold on the screen where you select the template type! ---~~
Agree wholeheartedly Tongueout I've been able to "fix" a lot of them through guessing. The ones that need special attention can be found here, which I'm slowly working through. I've found that putting the tooltip coding outside the infobox code actually duplicates that info on mobile instead of hiding it (yee-ha); putting it inside the infobox code magically solves that, and the tooltips still work. For the other stuff, I included what's not working within the Broken template I popped onto those pages. Items are going to be a bugger (yanking tpl). Raylan13@fandom (talk) 01:52, February 23, 2018 (UTC)
Edit - oh, and I'm working on a slight reformat to zone/subzone pages. The Wandering Isle is sort of the base I'm working from with what's working thus far on mobile. Item pages with my previously revamped rewards sections have to be reworked, as well as all those beautiful tabs on class pages (should just be able to throw "titles" on the tabbed sections - dunno why names in the tabs don't show).

Hi, I thought maybe I would like to help providing new voting polls. Even though, I don't think I'm allowed, but I thought of the best ones:

  • Whose side should the Vrykul join?
  • What is the next allied race? (Vulpera, Forest trolls, Wildhammer Dwarves, Gilgoblins)

That's all I have. Hope it'll do.--Spenpiano (talk) 01:00, March 22, 2018 (UTC)

PI broked stuff

Wanted to let you know I had to revert some infoboxes back to their pre-PI state in order to get them to at least show the correct information on mobile and work correctly with tooltips. I'll take some time and see if I can get them to work soon*.

Also, I noticed some of the battlepet page infoboxes were swapped out; the end result is that the item template no longer workd Tongueout. Looks like there was no differentiation between the item that summons the pet and the pet, which should (?) have been put on two separate pages. Tiny Crimson Whelpling is an example - I rolled it back to use the "correct" box, but should add a page for the battle pet itself. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 21:31, May 2, 2018 (UTC)

It'll probably be something we'd have to just catch when we run across it. Otherwise we'd have to go through 600 pages or so Tongueout I only happened on the whelpling by chance when mobile-testing templates. But RBoy should definitely be made aware. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 22:41, May 2, 2018 (UTC)

Random Page Copy

Hi, Fandyllic! I just happened upon the page Flamethrower (2), and was confused because it's exactly like the page Flamethrower. I checked on wowhead, and there are 2 different pages for this ability, with different ability numbers assigned to them, but that's the only difference between them, and I'm not sure if there really are 2 different identical ones in the game. So, should I copy what wowhead did when I say which battle pets use each ability copy, or should the second one be deleted and the battle pets assigned to each one be merged together? Thanks!
