Hi! Thanks for all the recent edits you've contributed to the wiki! Keep up the great work! In recognition, we've made you a DDO wiki VIP member, which allows you to edit pages without the need to enter the CAPTCHA every time! "Tauro" (Contributions Message) 11:33, May 5, 2012 (EDT)


Sorry I missed you on IRC earlier. Check out Template:Post for info on how to do the {{post}}. "Tauro" (Contributions Message) 21:30, May 18, 2012 (EDT)

As an example, here the code for the above post:
{{SUBST:Post|0|~~~~|Sorry I missed you on IRC earlier. Check out [[:Template:Post]] for info on how to do the <nowiki>{{post}}</nowiki>.}}

I typically prefer the compressed version. "Tauro" (Contributions Message) 21:30, May 18, 2012 (EDT)

Let's see if this works. Thanks for the info. :) Nibelung (ContributionsMessage) 23:28, May 18, 2012 (EDT)

File Naming and Image Quality[edit]

Please read DDO_wiki:Naming_policy#File_naming many of the images are missing information, cut off or using the incorrect file naming or of poor quality. Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 14:18, July 14, 2012 (EDT)

Are they replacement files or New files? If they are replacement, then there should be no issue with taking the old file, copying the missing information from the bottom and pasting it to the new updated version... If they are new files altogether you are talking about, my opinion is something is better than nothing and as long as a tag for [[Category:Needs Info-Box Pic]]<!-- Something is better than nothing but this is missing stuffs from cropping --> then I would be happy... Perhaps some links to the images so I can take a look and see if I can find better versions or make those versions work?
ShoeMaker (Contributions  Message) 22:38, July 17, 2012 (EDT)
Some were updated, some I did a fresh file. My upload log on the day I checked this topic [[1]] is huge. In general, the new ones were uploaded with the proper item name, and the weird named are updates. The images I uploaded with missing bottom bar are:
There, just went through and linked them all... going to bed now, will look at them tomorrow at work / lunch..
ShoeMaker (Contributions  Message) 01:30, July 18, 2012 (EDT)
Looks good for me. Thanks a lot for fixing it. Also, fixed the chaosgarde link. I typed the wrong name :) Nibelung (ContributionsMessage) 01:43, July 18, 2012 (EDT)

Are using a bot / semi-bot to help you edit?[edit]

I notice that you have a few back to back edits (like 6 in less than a minute) with the same edit reason and the same byte change... Are you using a bot to make edits (maybe Auto-Wiki-Browser)? It is okay if you are, just let me know and I'll give you access to our bot account (Kobold_sneak (Contribs • Message)) so that you can make those trivial edits unseen. If you are interested, hit me up for Sneak's password on the IRC chat channel. Cool Face

Thanks for catching that typo of Cormul Haythorne. Fingers hit too many keys, and didn't notice it. lol Seekeroflite (ContributionsMessage) 12:54, November 19, 2012 (EST)

Recommendation for promotion to sysop[edit]

I nominated you for a promotion here. You may review the privileges and responsibilities for the title here before responding. Big Grin

Score and Rewards[edit]

Nib, please add the number of motes that you receive for each score so I can calculate the formula for it... Seems to be Floor(Score/3) at this point, but need more than 3 data points to confirm. Big Grin

ShoeMaker (Contributions  Message) 22:28, January 13, 2013 (EST)
Definitelly is a third of the score, rounded down. All the runs I made matched this formula (I'm taking the tickets daily) Nibelung (ContributionsMessage) 06:43, January 14, 2013 (EST)

Item File naming[edit]

Use ItemName (Level XY) instead of ItemName (Normal) so it matches the pagename. ty Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 23:43, February 20, 2013 (EST)

Category: <sub-race> sub-race monsters‎[edit]

The work is great, but those category names are quite bad. The suffix "sub-race monsters‎" is unnecessarily. → BlackSmith (ContributionsMessage) 16:14, March 2, 2013 (EST)

Nibelung (Contribs • Message) is not setting the categories, he is only filling in the template which automatically assigns categorizations. At this time, leaving the "type monsters", "race monsters", and "sub-race monsters" is beneficial to making sure everything is in the right places. Once all of the pages are updated and created, I'll make the needed changes to the template and move the categories that need to be moved.

U19 shown pics[edit]

Shown pic for Update 19 named items are at the bottom of the page. Risk and Reward same style. Helms I haven't uploaded yet. Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 13:27, August 24, 2013 (EDT)

Thanks. Will update soon. Nibelung (Contributions⇑ top ⇑) 13:29, August 24, 2013 (EDT)

Spell Descriptions in Enhancements[edit]

Nibelung, I noticed I put a Spell Description into the Dwarf Enhancement page that you had taken out in the previous edit. Since I can see pros/cons for each style, I've posted the question at the Help Desk. If the final decision is "Just link, don't repeat the info", I'll go back and fix Dwarf.

You've been nominated for clown of the year![edit]

Just kidding! HA! I did however nominate you for bureaucrat should you wish to accept the nomination... :) ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 20:57, December 14, 2013 (EST)

All the images tagged for deletion.[edit]

I should make sure you are clear that all the files you tagged for deletion today are currently not eligible for deletion (as the template you used indicates: This page is currently not eligible for deletion as there is no talk page, which means there is no reason for deletion on the talk page.) ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 19:34, November 8, 2014 (EST)

Did you guys changed any rules on deletion? I remember that specifically images that got a higher quality upload were allowed for deletion without extended discussion. That is why I flagged them for deletion. Nibelung (Contributions⇑ top ⇑) 23:11, November 8, 2014 (EST)

  • No rules have changed. {{Instantdelete}} should have been used with a link to the new version of the image in the edit summary (per the template usage instructions) instead of {{Delete}} which requires an explanation of why it should be deleted on the talk page and agreement to delete per !vote. Either you can go through and change all the templates to Instantdelete with the link to the new version in the edit summary, just add a comment on the talk page with a link to the new version, or I could re-promote you to admin (if you're planning on being back on a more regular basis). Let me know. :) ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 23:40, November 8, 2014 (EST)
    • Right, wrong tag. My bad. I will fix it tomorrow. I have no intention to take another break like the last one, so I have no problem going back to admin as well. Nibelung (Contributions⇑ top ⇑) 00:13, November 9, 2014 (EST)
      • Oh, I forgot to mention... I've reinstated your sysop/crat bits (months ago). Probably should create a place holder /promote/ page for the reinstatement, but I don't feel up to it. Will do later I suppose for record keeping purposes. I just cleaned the extra ddowikivip out, let me know if that causes an issue. ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 16:23, July 30, 2015 (EDT)

We'll miss you[edit]

I'm sad that you'll be leaving us, but I understand new games and whatnot. Considering your elevated permissions, I'd like to know if you would like me to remove those bits pending you possibly returning some day. Let me know, I'll email you in a couple days if I don't hear from you here. ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 13:41, January 29, 2017 (EST)

  • Go for it. I got burned out from DDO, and waited a while to see if I would miss it after the "new game" itch was scratched. I'll miss you guys as well. Nibelung (Contribs⇑ top ⇑) 14:39, January 29, 2017 (EST)
