Oh noes, who gave M1330 the keys to the template box, normally anything he does is reverted... but not templates, they simply get changed... /sigh. User:Coobra/Sig3 20:03, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, Ose!

Thank you much for your hospitable welcoming. I look forward to contributing to and tidying up WoWwiki. It is satisfying to see such a large and cordial Warcraft community such as this. I do, however, need help with my user info page... As in, you know, the little tabs that say "This user can correctly pronounce Draenei" and "This user likes to mix and match racial mounts", etc. I have an interest to add some things like those to MY user page, but I do not know how...could you explain this to me further? Thank you, and have a great day =D. -Tsuln (talkcontr)

About Kil'jaeden

Hi Ose. I read just now your message about the kil'jaeden state of killble. today reading forums and co. i remembered that I wrote killable in his article.

I noted that you corrected me and i want to thank you, but I re-corrected it "defeatable" as you not only combat, but even defeat him before you push him back to the nether trought the sunwell. i'd like to know if you agree with me in this last change. thank you of all.--Steve 19:58, 27 April 2008 (UTC)(Gorund)


I'm new to wowwiki and don't know exactly how it does work. Honestly, i thought i did not save the page as I just used that to "prepare" an edit to another page. I will do my better to learn very well all the written or oral rules to help the ww community. It looks like you're "monitoring" me...I thank you for doing so lol:D Best regards, --Gorund 20:55, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

HI there. Moonglade's pretty ok now. Not as many goldsellers as there used to be. Think most people are just waiting until Wotlk comes out - Isn't much going on. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by RealmS (talkcontr).

Instance names

I noticed you changed some instance templates to add the word "the" before them. When I went to the instance pages it didn't have " the" before the name of the instances, that is why I did it like that. LOL Is it wrong the way I did it or just semantics? Rolandius (talk) 13:55, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Ahhh, now your voting for them to be deleted. LOL It is an accomplishment for people just starting WoW. Rolandius (talk) 13:58, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm interested in learning how you wrote your user page to produce the various tabs. If you have a link to a template or explanation that should suffice, even just a link to your own coding since 'editing' your page to view the code doesn't show enough info. thanks WoWWiki-Popeye (talk) 04:56, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm interested in how you produced these 'tabs' "Ose To do Screenie of the day! my charactersFunky templatesUsefull RSS feeds " - I don't see anything similar at kirkburns page you mentioned. I am intending to edit Aman'Thul to clean it up a bit (clutter) so that I have various pages of info just on various tabs... e.g. 'general details', 'history', 'recent news', 'famous people', 'legendaries', 'progression', 'guilds', 'recruitment', 'RSS feeds' maybe extend it a bit more as I have time to customise my server page some more...WoWWiki-Popeye (talk) 17:35, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Ah, I thought you meant his userpage. Many thanks I've found the template I'm interested in. I'll write it up as a sandbox first and see if I can get it to work. cheers WoWWiki-Popeye (talk) 23:37, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

I think I have it working now, feel free to comment on whether you think its a feasible idea for a server page... It is running on a sandbox page atm found here Aman'Thul Test page. thanks for your help.WoWWiki-Popeye (talk) 06:23, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback Ose. I'll look into your {{tab}} coding later tonight. I wasn't sure what content to put into a wrap except perhaps a screenshot or 3. There are some piece of info I could put into the wrap but I don't think the general info (for example) would be necessary on every page and it gets a bit 'too much'. I'm using a separate page as you suggested however for the bottom content box so I can alert regular viewers of anything that gets updated... i.e. User:WoWWiki-Popeye/ATupdate. thanks again WoWWiki-Popeye (talk) 05:02, 10 June 2008 (UTC)


I have a question to: how do you get or make cool signatures like yours? Mizrath (talk) 10:11, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

I was talking about that to but i mean how to make a cool signature in general im sorta new at this stuff. Mizrath (talk) 13:28, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey, Ose! Great job on the raid progress template. Your use of color to enhance information is remarkable. So is that thing complete now? Do you plan to shrink it down some? User:JIM the Inventor ° talk ˚ contribs. 20:23, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

School of Fish

Re: Fishing Pool rename to Fishing pool; that makes sense, but shouldn't School of Fish get the same treatment? I realized that there is an object in the game called School of Fish, but the article is not about that object, only mentions it.

OTOH, a rename to School of fish could result in bad links if the redirect page gets overwritten by an article on the critter object. Madkaugh (talk) 00:14, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Bite me

How in the hell are you going to tell me that you cant put fan art on articles when there are PLENTY of others that I have seen? Hmm? Go take a look at the Arthas page. See it? Good, now clean that up too. After youre done with that-- bite me.

Edit: okay maybe I got ahead of myself, but what I said still stands true. If youre going to take my stuff out, you may as well do it for all the others. Ignore the bite me part. Ayalafatalis (talk) 03:32, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Need help with Stratholme

Hey, I tried to put Saidan Dathrohan/Balnazzar on the final boss thing for Stratholme, but it came out kinda funky. Can you fix it for me? I tried to fix it myself, but I just messed it up and I had to undo it. Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 18:22, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, I ment like put Saidan Dathrohan/Balnazzar on the final boss thing too. Because Strath living and Strath undead are two different instances (I think), and since the article is apparently about Strath as a whole (minus the Culling of Stratholme), I thought you should put Saidan Dathrohan/Balnazzar as the final boss of lviing side. But oh well, I suppose it doesn't make a big difference. Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 20:13, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Ahhh, ok then. I thought it was 2 separate instances. Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 20:48, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

I really suck at this stuff...

Hey there, I need help again. Sorry if I seem kinda helpless, but for some reason Wowwiki apparently hates me...anyways, I made some edits to Barean Westwind's page, and for some reason on the race part of his box, the [[ thing appears at both the beginning of it and the end. Can you try to fix it for me? Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 02:19, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Using race= will automatically link whatever is placed there, however using races= will allow you to put multiple races in the box which then you can use [[ ]] to link certain words within. User:Coobra/Sig3 02:24, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Ahhh, ok, ty. Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 02:31, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm back again with another problem, this time the image I'm using for my FanFic character is kinda screwed up <_<. Help plz? Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 19:31, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

It's fixed. Just use the image name (e.g. "Varian in Stormwind.jpg") when using image=. User:Gourra/Sig2 19:47, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Guild template

Navixo is trying to update Server:Medivh US, much of it using the templates from the server project. He's having trouble with the Guild template. One problem is something you will need to fix. Unless we're using the template wrong, multiple guild entries end up in the ToC. The other problems are things I'm not sure you can fix. He'd like to be able to have the Guild and Alliance lists next to each other, and he'd like to be able to pick and choose which columns to use (in particular he doesn't want the abbreviation column). Can you help with any of that? Or should he just use a different template? Either way, you should see if he's interested in helping the server project. ;) -- Mordsith - (talk|contr) 02:29, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Saurfang Facts

I added six. Tell me what you think of them please:

Saurfang doesn't need weapons. He is a weapon. Blizzard pays Saurfang to stop him cleaving everybody. Saurfang mines with Shadowmourne Saurfang can Tank, DPS and Heal. Too bad he never needs to heal. Saurfang can dual wield guns. Saurfangs ghost can kill spirit guides. BobNamataki (talk) 23:12, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

Many of your images have been marked for deletion, however I'm reluctant to delete them cause they're in your personal category, unless you feel its ok. Either way let me know so they can either be deleted or have the delete notice removed from them. Thank you, User:Coobra/Sig4 20:54, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

"WoWWiki is not an image hosting service. Any images uploaded should be for use on WoWWiki." Thought that was the case, hence I marked them. TherasTaneel (talk) 20:58, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Presumably, if they're in use on a user's page, that would still count as "use" under the above quote. As Ose's said that he doesn't really intend to put them to further use, it's probably okay to delete them if not in use. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:07, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
