Currently experimenting and revising and updating info for DDOStore article cuz right its kinda messy and needs some updates. i got my proposed look in my Sandbox. Please comment. Its barely finished though. Its tough work! - User talk:Sef326seffie Sef326 05:48, January 28, 2010 (EST)

Hi Sef, sorry about the wiki being down for so long! I'm glad you find the wiki useful and thank you for the kind words! Oh, and your user page is very impressive :) --Xevo 21:47, January 15, 2010 (EST)

thnx for dropping by Xevo! Sef326 22:52, January 15, 2010 (EST)
I'm always here, I'm just usually lurking in the shadows ;)

Hey guys!

Im just making some adjustments to XPs earned in Wilderness Areas (Explorer, Slayer, Rare Encounters), seeing that info on this wiki seems to be outdated.

Yeah, this is my current project, as well as putting some more information on quests and stuff. Mostly F2P quests for our newcomers.

I hope that contributors on the wiki can form a guild so that we can research about stuff together.

I really want this wiki to be the main source of info for newbs and vets alike.

Oct 25, 2009[edit]

i recently joined up a PUG to do quests in Ataraxia's Haven (everytime i have to cut&paste that name :P )and discovered that there is not much info on the wiki abt the area and its 2 quests. i wouldve gathered alot of info for the wiki if not for the constant struggle to stay alive cuz the half of the members of the party i was in didnt know what they were doing.

so in the next few days i will be gathering more info abt Ataraxia's Haven if i can find a good enough group that will allow me to explore, map and find interesting things. meanwhile, im also mapping & revising the Tangleroot page.

Finished STK adventure and article yesterday. played using my ranger3/rouge2 char Perigrine so that i can spot & disarm traps. made maps and guides for STK. Sef326 18:19, November 1, 2009 (EST)

Nov 4, 2009[edit]

i'd like to work on screenshots for various Named Armor so that people will have a preview of how it'll look like. i would suggest that if people want to screenshot armors to do it on the login screen to make it more uniform, lesser distractions and for better lighting conditions. i did front and back views of armors. now i wanna make male & female versions. that'll require me to mail my armors from my male to my female & vice versa, which'll cost me gold. mind you im not rich. another plan that im thinking of doing is redoing some adpacks to get *all* named armor quests rewards for their proper screenshots. we'll see. User talk:Sef326seffie 13:48, November 3, 2009 (EST)

oh, you dont have access to account-wide bank? which server you on? --yoko5000 23:30, November 3, 2009 (EST)
im F2P, bought some Adpax using TP gained thru favor,i got chars on all servers but my mains are in Argo (Berrenn & Illyyanna) and Ghallanda (Perigrine). cant afford shared bank. wont buy it using my hard earned TPs. adpacks are my priority. User talk:Sef326seffie 23:39, November 3, 2009 (EST)

my 1st template[edit]

made my [[Template:Unique_armor_new|1st template]] yesterday after many trial & error and edits (dont worry i know abt the minor edit check box hehe). played around with colors, finally decided Gold is the appropriate color for Named Armors. quite happy about that. i really wanna learn more abt techniques in wiki scripting, especially Sortable Tables, which can be of great use here. im also wondering if we can, or allowed to, imbed the official videos of adventure packs from youtube into the wiki.

You can embed the videos if the wiki does support it. --Borror0 05:38, November 5, 2009 (EST)

but today i'll be playing on Orien, the new DDO server, to get more TPs. User talk:Sef326seffie

i just realized that with the new armor template i broke something abt the categories but i think its something that will be easy to fix without having to revert everything. i will read up abt categories over the weekend and hopefully everything will be better than before by monday. as gandalf once said, a burnt hand is the best teacher, after that a lesson abt fire goes to the heart. uhmm got that from memory. i do apologize for any inconvinience. User talk:Sef326seffie
i think i fixed my mistakes and that all are ok now. changing parameters messed up the categories so i corrected that. next time im revising anything i will be more thorough with code ;). may be i will delve into categorizing soon hehe User talk:Sef326seffie

Sortable tables[edit]

To have a sortable table, set the class to "sortable". Yes, it,s that simple! --Borror0 21:05, November 11, 2009 (EST)

oh. duh. i worked. haha. cuz the sortable icon didnt show up when i clicked on Live Preview. i didnt Save it with the switch sortable. when i did save it, it sorted. lolz. thnx man - Sef326 21:21, November 11, 2009 (EST)

Unused and uncategorized categories[edit]

I have been cleaning up the wiki through Special:UnusedCategories and Special:UncategorizedCategories. I pretty much cleaned everything but item-related articles. Since you and Yoko5000 have been far more active than I in that department, I felt that it was best to leave that part to you. Would either of you mind checking those categories and see what is wrong with them? --Borror0 22:42, February 8, 2010 (EST)

ive been meaning to address this issue. im especially annoyed when i see a red link at the bottom of an item page. most of it is caused by naming conventions (ie Short Sword - Shortsword, Great Club - Greatclub) and how theyre coded on the actual item page. Another dilemma is categorizing an item as "reward item" and "loot". I figured that was done before i started working on this is that it was intended that there will be a differentiation of the two terms (category reward items for NPC reward, category loot for chest loots). i am still not able to figure out how to code loot into the templates. right now theyre defaulting to reward items (ie Category:{{quest name}} reward items). I dont want to rename any Loot Category cause theyre tied to their respected Quest pages. I want to be able to automatically classify loot items in the actual Template or probably just go to individual pages and add their categories. i fixed the category for one-handed/two handed weapons. -Sef326 02:06, February 9, 2010 (EST)
Fixed the weapon one. The dichotomy between loot and end reward is a bit silly. I killed it. Taking a look at the others. Let me know If I broke anything. Btw, if you have any other issues you would want me to take a look at, poke me any time. --Borror0 02:15, February 9, 2010 (EST)
Okay fixed them all but the Unique armor new template. The way you built that one, the only way to fix it will break many one of the ones you've applied the template on and will require to edit them all to remove the category you added by hand. --Borror0 02:29, February 9, 2010 (EST)
OK i'll look into that next. currently im correcting some entries (changing Long Sword to Longsword etc) so that they'll fit into their proper categories. im sorry if i broke a few things too. since you're cleaning up, im gonna be doing some cleaning too. my own messes ;). how can i delete categories & articles ? i know you agve my superuser right i juz dont know how to -02:36, February 9, 2010 (EST)
Heh. Seems you found how. Just left of the move button. :) --Borror0 02:41, February 9, 2010 (EST)
ARRRGGGHH! i hate Turbine and their inconsistencies! i just checked ingame the naming conventions. Ive always thought the the correct namings are Longsword, Shortsword, etc ... hence the naming Nicked Longsword, Ember Longsword. But i just checked and under the actual unique weapon name is Long Sword and Short Sword. Sorry. i may do re-edits. or stick with it. -Sef326 03:04, February 9, 2010 (EST)

hehe. Welcome to the club. We all hate them. We once voted for one-word version (ie longsword, greataxe, etc.) as the convention on the wiki so that at least WE are consistent. Feel free to use that convention if you want, or to use the in-game one. --Borror0 03:13, February 9, 2010 (EST)

my thoughts exactly. wiki has to be consistent. as long as we dont have both Shortsword and Short Sword categories for example i will be satisfied. i like the one-word version myself. im also gonna be looking at DnD PnP namings and see if that'll help. -Sef326 03:23, February 9, 2010 (EST)
3.5 D&D uses the one-word version: --Borror0 03:26, February 9, 2010 (EST)
cool! this link really helps alot. thnx man. send this link to turbine :D -Sef326 03:29, February 9, 2010 (EST)
Done! --Borror0 03:42, February 9, 2010 (EST)
/signed! lol -Sef326 04:03, February 9, 2010 (EST)

Since we're talking of consistency, here is one that will make you hate me: do we go with unique or named? Named is more intuitive and widespread in the community, and we're using it at a few places already (we had concluded we'd use that one). However, unique is what we use mosts on the wiki. Thoughts? --Borror0 11:45, February 9, 2010 (EST)

i think the wiki is the only one using the term Unique in reference to named drops, cuz when i goto the forum, "Named" is the common term. i dont think that it'll will be that hard to do, juz a number of edits and redirects will do the job so im totally ok with it. -Sef326 18:28, February 9, 2010 (EST)

Quest tabs[edit]

I saw you delete a few of those. I don't know what their function is or if they are still useful but if they are not useful anymore you've missed a few:

  1. QuestTabs/Adpacks
  2. QuestTabs/Allquests
  3. QuestTabs/F2P
  4. QuestTabs/Raids
  5. QuestTabs/Tab1
  6. QuestTabs/Tab2
  7. QuestTabs/TabBottom
  8. QuestTabs/TabHeader
  9. QuestTabs/TabTop
  10. QuestTabs/Tabs
  11. QuestTabs/Wildareas

--Borror0 19:09, February 9, 2010 (EST)

i was abt to delete them, when i thought that i can make it work for the quest pages, its a project thats been on the backburner. i'll delete them if i cant make it work. -Sef326 19:49, February 9, 2010 (EST)

Nifty tabs[edit]

I like what you did with the tabs on your user page and I want to borrow your templates if you don't mind. - Mjoll

I don't think he will mind, I adopted them on my user page and dropped him a thank you.. --Technical_13-- ShoeMaker 12:09, March 22, 2011 (EDT)
