Category talk:Heavy armor

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This category has multiple errors, including pulling in items which no longer exist (ex: Platemail of Giants), listing some but not all of an item with multiple levels, and many items with errors in their detail. Not sure where to even begin here. -Niminae (ContribsMessage) 05:56, July 10, 2017 (EDT)

  • If there are errors, then they are on the pages for the armors themselves. That's where things need to be fixed. Platemail of Giants still exists, even if you can't obtain a new one anymore. It's kept for {{ History }} reasons and I'd oppose their removal from the list, although I'd be willing to figure out some way to indicate they are historical only. If there are levels of items missing, are there pages for those levels of items? Are they using the template? Are they using the same information for categorization purposes? The answer to one of those questions is no if it is not showing up.  👟 ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 👟 06:04, July 10, 2017 (EDT)
    • Here's another example: No Worries. Available in every factor of 5 from ML5-ML30, this armor seriously outperforms all other options if you're looking for AC at levels 5 and 10, and still maintains a significant lead at levels 15 and 20. And yet none of them are listed at all on this page, and there are no errors on the armor pages as far as I can tell (unless you count listing the Insightful Fortification and Insightful Physical Sheltering in reverse order). They just aren't being included in the category. -Niminae (ContribsMessage) 09:35, August 20, 2017 (EDT)
      • Individual item pages for various No Worries versions, such as Item:No_Worries_(level_5) do not exist. Thus, information from those non-existent pages cannot be shown in the category page. If you have (some of) the armors, please go ahead and create them. In a few hours, category page will be automatically updated to display them. --Cru121 (ContribsMessage) 11:30, August 20, 2017 (EDT)
        • Ahhhh, so that's the problem. I never know where things are being pulled from, and there isn't anyplace that helps editors understand things like this, unless I also just don't know where that is located. I have the L5 and L10 versions of No Worries, I'll create/update them. -Niminae (ContribsMessage) 20:09, August 20, 2017 (EDT)
          • I've now done this. I noticed that weight is not shown. And I looked at several other armors and even if the weight is in the code the page always says 0 lbs. --Niminae (ContribsMessage) 17:44, August 22, 2017 (EDT)
            • I've corrected the weight issue, the changes to the template should populate out through the pages in the next 24 hours. If there is a specific one you want to see faster, simply purge the cache or perform a null edit.  👟 ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 👟 00:03, August 23, 2017 (EDT)
