Abilities infobox Edit

When adding it, can I ask you to make certain entries in it links? You can have a look at Blink or Slam to see what I mean. Thanks for contributing!--Sky (t · c · w) 23:02, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Cool. Make sure to use {{Infobox ability}} for spells/abilities/talented abilities and {{Infobox talent}} for other talents. Again, my thanks (I was just starting on some of the Mage spells; I've done Blink and Blizzard, also having cleaned up the redundant information).--Sky (t · c · w) 23:12, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

May Edit

I think I'm going to add a "Related Buff" section to the abilities infobox. It's a little silly to have that other template on the page, and screens with smaller resolutions just don't work with it. I haven't got the time atm, just wanted to warn you for my plans. :) --Sky (t · c · w) 18:57, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Slight tweakage to User:Piumosso-Uldum/Sandbox2. It would be nice to have the icon also included in it, as well. If you can, try and get it into {{infobox ability}}, rather than it being in a different template. Do you think you have the know-how? --Sky (t · c · w) 03:19, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
Hmm... I'll give you my thoughts when I can think a little straighter. Smiley. Actually, add in for the #switch for the other types of magic (curses, disease, poison, and typeless, for which you should see the bottom of Magic (Dispel Type)). --Sky (t · c · w) 00:34, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Awesome. It might be wise to make the whole talents section optional, as there are certain spells which -aren't- improved (Invisibility comes to mind). That, and the |race= section should be optional; that's really only there in the case that your ability is a Priest ability, or just another generic ability that is race specific (such as Shadowmeld). Other than that, cool beans. Oh yes: Might want to have a look at the bottom of Sandbox1. ;P --Sky (t · c · w) 01:00, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Added: The buff icon doesn't look so hot where it's placed ;(. We need to sort that out. --Sky (t · c · w) 01:03, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Added2: |req= should also be optional. --Sky (t · c · w) 01:06, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

I thin that might be it from me. I'll have a look tomorrow. Maybe. :o. Personally, I love how the tooltip for the buff floats. Maybe make it a little wider? :) --Sky (t · c · w) 01:28, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

Aye. However, we change them now, we only have to go through 20 some edits. Decide to change it later... --Sky (t · c · w) 00:32, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Boilerplate:Ability Edit

I've tweaked it a tad; don't worry about going back and changing all the pages you've already done. --Sky (t · c · w) 06:58, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

In a related change, I tweaked {{Infobox ability}}; it now has a radius command for ranged AoE spells. It could also be used for PBAoEs, where |range = "Self" and |radius = x yds. I'm not real sure about usage in such a way, but I was wondering about your thoughts, as you're the one who is using it the most. --Sky (t · c · w) 21:31, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

updating abilities/talents Edit

can you work on updating abilities first? :). i want to fix up a talents boilerplate.

You should also note that you can change the width of the ranks table on the pages by going to the "width=xem" part and changing the number (see here). I would suggest doing this so that the table headers aren't on 2 lines. :) --Sky (t · c · w) 00:26, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

ack! you used the talents infobox for Cone of Cold instead of Template:Infobox ability. See Boilerplate:Talent for the updated talents boilerplate.--Sky (t · c · w) 00:18, 20 April 2007 (EDT)
PS Yes, this does mean you can update abilities or talents in whichever order you want. :)

Oops. Silly me. I'm on crack. --Sky (t · c · w) 00:21, 20 April 2007 (EDT)

Incinerate Edit

Was that this last patch, or an earlier one? --Sky (t · c · w) 05:02, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Tooltip Buff Template Edit

Hello there! I had actually created separate templates for all the various types of debuffs and buffs (Template:Tooltip Buff, Template:Tooltip CurseDebuff, Template:Tooltip Debuff, Template:Tooltip DiseaseDebuff, Template:Tooltip MagicBuff, Template:Tooltip MagicDebuff, Template:Tooltip PoisonDebuff) which would correctly categorize each buff/debuff by type.

I do prefer your template, however, but I think it could be improved by determining if it is a buff or debuff. This would allow

  1. The buffs/debuffs to be categorized correctly. When using your template with the ability template, everything is

categorized as <Type> Debuffs, which is incorrect.

  1. Perhaps colouring the border of the debuffs (Blue=Magic, Green=Poison, Purple=Curse, Brown=Disease, Red=Typeless) to match those in-game. It's a small thing but I find it adds alot to connect the WW to the game like that. I already have the colours figured out in my older templates.

Let me know what you think! I'd be more than happy to make the changes, but I consider it polite to at least bring it up with the original author first ;) Cheers. -- TUSVA ~ T | C 12:47, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Uh... {{infobox talent}}... what talents cause a buff that aren't also abilities? --Sky (t · c · w) 18:22, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Ah. Ignite. That's a rare one. --Sky (t · c · w) 18:26, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
Ignite, Winter's Chill, Improved Scorch, Blazing Speed, Arcane Concentration, pretty much any talent that procs. --Piu (?!) 19:35, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

bot troubleshooting Edit

I'm setting up pywikipedia, and I'm getting an error when trying to use Did you by chance run into errors on line 601 and 483? --Sky (t | c | w) 10:13, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

I had no errors in that script - I had some errors only in I did have to update to the latest Python though, make sure you have a recent version. --Piu (?!) 23:11, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
Just installed it last night. They also released a new version of the bot 3 days ago, so I might have to look into using the old script or possibly bug them on #pywikipedia. Thanks either way. --Sky (t | c | w) 23:14, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
