I will rather look at spelling mistakes, words missing, hyperlinked words missing, etc. , since I'm not very familiar with the rules system as such. Alrik (ContributionsMessage) 09:56, May 25, 2012 (EDT)

Well welcome! If you need any help or have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.. You may also find help on our IRC channel, which may or may not be faster if you are in a hurry. Big Grin ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 11:28, May 25, 2012 (EDT)

I indeed have a question : When I'm looking on the "All Spells" list here Category:All_spells , there are some schools mentioned, like Abjuration and Conjuration, but others not (like Evocation).

A) Why is this ?
B) why can't I edit this page ?
C) What has caused that there are some schools listed and others not ?→ Alrik

A) None of the spell schools belong in a category that is defined as a list of spells (I have removed Abjuration and Conjuration).

B) You can edit the page, however, that is not a "regular page". It is a Category page. This basically means that all of the pages that are listed there, have a code embedded someplace within them that put them on that page. In order to add or remove, you need to go to the page in question that should be linked there and add or remove the appropriate codes to make them show up in the category. If you do this, you must be patient, it often takes more than an hour for your change to actually to effect due to the way that the server caches pages and categories.
C) My previous two answers actually answer this question as well (I hope)... The link that I provide in section B) to MediaWiki's Category Help page should help provide you with more details of how categories work. ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 16:51, May 25, 2012 (EDT)


thank you for this explanation ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 10:20, May 26, 2012 (EDT)

You are welcome... In order to make our posts look professional as much as we possibly can, we use the Template:Post to write messages on talk pages. The format for this template is simple, you start your post with "{{SUBST:Post|" then you put in a number to represent the indent of the post which is usually the post before yours plus one. (In this the case of this post, your post before mine was level 5, so this post is level 6). The exception to this is if your post is the very first post on a subject, then it is indented "0". Next you put in the code so that your response will be automatically signed and date & time stamped for you which looks like "|~~~~|" Now you have the base work done and it is time for your comment or post. There are a couple of "reserved symbols you should know how to escape to make them show up correctly. The Post template does not like = (equal signs), | (pipes), or < (less than symbols). If you need to put one of these symbols, you will need to use: {{=}}, {{!}}, or &lt; respectively. Once you are done typing out your comments, the final step is to close the post with a pair of curly brackets like "}}" So, lets say you wanted to start a new discussion thread on my talk page; your post might look like: "{{SUBST:Post|0|~~~~| What ever you want your post to say to me. }}" You may follow the link to the Post template I have linked to see these instructions more specifically with an example (If I remember correctly), look over most any admin's talk/discussion page, or ask me or any other admin on the wiki or on our DDO_wiki:IRC chat channel.

Enhancements missing?[edit]

Hello, once again, I just found out that the "Follower of" enhancements are almost completely missing from the Wiki. I have a neutral good Drow Cleric which has several of these "Follower of" enhancements available, but none of them appear in this Wiki's Cleric Enhancements list. But they are at least listed in the Compendium : - and if I type the search key word "follower", then i only get one Half-Elf ehancement called "Follower of the Sovereign Host". I believe these "Follower of" enhancements should be better incorporated into the Wiki, but I don't know how ... I don't even understand why some classes ? races ? get some of them and some not. And, most importantly, if they are mutually exclusive or not.  Alrik (ContributionsMessage) 08:00, July 31, 2012 (EDT)
I personally don't currently have time to put them all in... You are more than welcome to do the best that you can in creating them, and I would be happy to check them and give you any advice or help along the way that I can. Cool Face

Are you looking for information about Faith based enhancements? I can also see them on the Cleric enhancements page. --Cru121 (ContributionsMessage) 07:13, November 21, 2012 (EST)

Yes, I found it, too. I had the impression as if this was added after my question here, but I'm nort sure, because I haven't followed this for a few months. By the way, I'm now thinking of an own small project : Translating major terms into my own language, German. I often have problems translating item names, enhancements, feats and whatnot into both English and German, so I thought that Wiki entries would be of help here.→ Alrik (ContributionsMessage) 07:34, November 21, 2012 (EST)
