Sorry, meant to leave a note about that. Try to re-write it into his page without mentioning the book. Juraj (one of the bureaucrats here) wants to start making character pages read more like a story like on the Star Wars and Harry Potter wiki. I'm not certain though what he plans to do with anything mentioned in the TV/movies though as the author has distanced himself from those.
No worries, thanks for the response! Seems a little difficult given that's how every character appears to be written though, and I thought the way it is currently seperated is to make a clear distinction between the mediums, as nothing else is canon outside the novels. I'd think that kind of addition was fine, until a time where they are completly rewritten - currently there is no mention of his appearence in The Voice of Reason.
Yeah, it was a recent thing Juraj decided on, so we've only been able to convert a few pages atm. Basically, we put in the infobox appearances section itself what they appear in, but don't mention it in the biography. I'll check with him though on what he wants to do about the Hexer info.
Hi, Mechemik. The pages for the stories in Sword of Destiny are inconsistently named; Okruch lodu (A Shard of Ice), Trochę poświęcenia (A Little Sacrifice), and Coś więcej (Something More) all have Polish page titles, while the other three stories have English titles. Could you rename these to English, please? Thanks.
Oh, and don't add anything to the general weapons category (like The Witcher 3 weapons, Blood and Wine weapons, etc.). To make them managable for those on mobile devices, those are only for weapons that don't fit in steel or silver, like axes.
Yeah, always check the links to make sure (I thought it went to the object at first too). Also, don't put anything in the category "Characters in the games" that's only to act as a category for sub-categories.
we don't normally capitalize each word in a heading nor use colons. Right now you're doing "Associated Quest:" "See Also:" but we just do "Associated quest" and "See also", etc.
the name field is set to default to the page name so you don't need to add a name. The only time this is filled in is if their page name is unofficial (like Ulf has to be set otherwise it shows "Ulf (Timmon's brother)")
when writing about their interactions with Geralt, put it as an if statement if its a secondary thing (not a main quest). Basically, if the player ran through the game only doing the main quest, would they have interacted with this person? If not, just write like "If Geralt helps so-and-so..."
this one is a bit more tricky. In the infobox, "Family" means like the family name they belong to if any. In most of the skelligers' case, that means their clan. Actual related people go under either "Parents" "Children" "Partner" or "Relatives".
Oh, this was a fairly recent (within the past few months) change, but unless it's an item, we don't say "is from game" in the article. Juraj wants to see it written more like a story like what they do on the Star Wars and Harry Pottery wiki.
When you edit it, go to "insert" on the edit menu and select "reference" and a pop up will appear. Write in the note, linking when necessary, and hit "insert". Then at the bottom of the page, if there isn't a reference list already, put in a reference header and then go back to "insert" and this time select "References list" and hit insert and it'll drop it in.
And again, the "mentioned-only characters" category should only be used if a character wasn't mentioned anywhere in a game, so more often than not they'll be going in "The Witcher 3 mentioned-only characters" category.
Okay id didnt know that was a category thanks. I have a question. At the very start of the witcher 3 when geralt is in kaer morhen in the tub, it says kaer morhen is "on the bank of the gwennlech" i assume thats a river but i cannot find any info about it
Which happened around 1250 according to the diary, and Geralt doesn't talke to Esla until 1272, so either there was a typo and the diary was supposed to be something like "1270" (which I'm inclined to believe as Hovel's map description says the massacre happened a few years ago) or that's some shitty justice system.
refrain from adding anything into "GAME items", whether it's Tw2 items, Tw3, BaW, etc. unless it fits nowhere else. For example, the urns are quest items so they go into the quest items category for BaW and not items.
for game extracted images, please do not pull from another site and please check this big whooping category (and sub-categories) first. Chances are, the image has already been uploaded and if not, ask and we'll upload an extracted file :)
I pulled them for now because the information is coming from another site and their information has been oudated in some areas enough that unless you've check it yourself, it's best to start from scratch with the list of sellers (for example, last I checked, they still use the oudated pictures for oils).
Ohhh, I think I see why you're confused about the images. When an image is already on file, you don't have to upload anything. You simply add the file name (for instance, if it's called ABC.png, just add "ABC.png" into the image field). No need to re-upload anything.
Ok, I'm going to give you a small warning here as I've repeated this several times: PLEASE stop uploading the same image that we already have on file. If you're having problems with editing, please let us know and we'll figure out what's going on, but right now it's just causing a headache because we have to keep going in and removing the duplicate image and replace it with the one on file.
There's going to be some "missing" pages that will always be in that list, and sandbox is one of them because it's set to individuals to create and use (my sandbox would be different from yours and everyone else's). It's basically a play area you can test out edits without interfering with the actual wiki articles.
Hey man, Juraj told me you are the best when it comes to the infoboxes so here I am. I have a little problem with the infox behaviour in the Villentretenmerth article. You se I made it just like the one of the Unseen Elder where there are two images and you can switch between them (Dragon form and human form)
Unfortunately even though the infobox works, I am not able to add any more atributes, for example "Alias", "Coat of Arms" etc. I have these atributes writhen and visible in the source code of the infobox, yet they never display in the infobox itself. Could you please help me?
Hey men, I have a question, Is there a reason why you changed the infobox image of Saesenthessis?
the thing is that I uploaded that version because it had the same parameters as the one from human form and thus the infobox stayed allways the same. But because you changed that to the gwent one version, it does not have the same dimensions and thus the infobox now changes the shape.
It's ok for the infobox images to be different sizes (assuming of course one isn't incredibly small and the other large). This way, it also cuts down on duplicate images, but thanks for trying to keep the box the same size anyways :)
Hello. I have a question for you. Sometimes, for whatever reason it happens that while I am editing, I try to activate the source code (sometimes it is easier to edit for me in that way) and the page goes white as normaly, but the source code table will not appear and I am basically stucked. I cannot push any button and the only way to get rid of it is to close the internet window, or go to the different page. It was just a little annoyance but now it caused me a big problem. I made the entire article for Myrgtabrakke, and just when I wanted to add references. it happend so I lost my entire work. Luckily I saved the page but even the saved page is all white and thus I cannot even copy the text or anything really. Is there a way to do something about it? Perhaps some button command or short cut or anything?
though there is something you can help me with. You see I already merged Saskia and Seasenthesis and now, The saskia page has only the redirect link. Unfortunately it also has around 18 post in the comment section. Would it be possible to move those as wellto the Seasenthesis page?
Sorry bout that, just figured I'd add the journal/note to the page since I had seen it in the past on other pages so thought it was just missing :P Where's the page that shows them all, by the way? I couldn't find it :/
Oh, you probably saw the actual quest's journal entries. I've noticed for some quests, like treasure hunts, the game's journal itself will include the note, so it gets added in. And could you clarify what you mean by a page that shows them all? All of what?
