Hi there, Demise101!Edit



Welcome to our Diablo Wiki, and thank you for your contribution on User:Demise101! There's a lot to do around here, so I hope you'll stay with us and make many more improvements. I am happy you decided to create an account to make yourself part of the community. Please, take the time and introduce yourself.

Recent changes is a great first stop, because you can see what other people are editing right this minute, and where you can help.
Questions? You can ask at the community portal talk page, on the "discussion" page associated with each article, or post a message on User talk:Danrr!
Need help? The Community Portal has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit. And take a gander at the Manual of Style for an overview of the type of writing style required in our pages.
And last but not the least, please use the Forums for any kind of discussion regarding the inner workings of this wiki and get an idea of what to do next. It is always a good idea to use the Shoutbox widget to let others know that you're online or even just to say Hi.

I'm really happy to have you here, and look forward to contributing with you!

Contacting a BureaucratEdit

Some people enable emails to be sent to them if you leave a message on their Talk page, if the bureaucrat you are attempting to contact has, they may receive an email notifying them of it. They will also be notified of messages on their Talk page of a specific wiki across any Wikia wiki they visit, so merely logging in on any Wikia wiki ought to get their attention. Therefore, I'd say the best way to contact a person would be to leave a message on their Talk page. ◄► Tephra ◄► 22:59, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

I wasn't sure if that was what you were implying or not, so rather than be arrogant and assume you were suggesting I ask for advancement, I choose to err on the side of humility. ◄► Tephra ◄► 23:17, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

I never said I didn't want to be an admin here, I just prefer being asked if I want a promotion over asking for one. Vadalism isn't that bad, a few here and there, but it isn't extreme. Spam is more frequent, I think. ◄► Tephra ◄► 23:41, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

Well if you think another is needed, I suppose I'll ask then. ◄► Tephra ◄► 23:59, October 14, 2011 (UTC)


First of all, why would you need my permission to contact Wikia? On to your issue, I'm not entirely sure what you are talking about (a link to the page would help), but I'm guessing you mean the main page? The white lines appear when you view it in monobook, if you switch to Wikia look, it isn't as broken in appearance. ◄► Tephra ◄► 05:30, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

Oh yes, that thing. It's ugly, I wouldn't miss it for a second. ◄► Tephra ◄► 05:50, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

"Banning Tutorial"Edit

Don't worry about whether I know how to do things around here or not. This is not the only wiki I am an admin/bureaucrat on. A vandal that makes one edit and then leaves isn't really a high priority threat, especially when someone has already fixed the vandalism. ◄► Tephra ◄► 12:06, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Reporting VandalsEdit

I always check the contributions by IPs, so reporting them isn't really necessary unless they are going on a rampage and you need me to take notice as soon as possible, in which case, I will be most quickly informed via an addition to my Talk page. You can always report vandalism by a registered user though, as they are more likely to be overlooked. ◄► Tephra ◄► 10:26, November 2, 2011 (UTC)

Hey Edit

Hey, I just wanted to say, thank you for your message. I've fixed my mistake and opened the Blog Post for everyone to post comments. I don't disagree that the so-called "spoilers", if you will, are indeed shocking, but after careful thought, and comparing them with what has been confirmed, I think they are, if nothing else, at least possibly true. For instance, if the producers are going to end the Diablo plot they've been developing with the third game, as they say they are, I'm beginning to realize actually how unlikely it is for the Angiris Council and Tyrael to not die in the game, if only to create some sense of balance or closure... Ralnon (talk) 00:45, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

Counter vandalismEdit

Yeah... as you said, I already have two new admins, so I don't think I'll be needing more help at this time. I am still doing most of the work, but this is probably because I visit the wiki more often than anyone else. You are still certainly welcome to revert any vandalism you see of course, but the vandalism has actually dropped significantly compared to the first few days following Diablo III's release.
◄► Tephra ◄► 05:06, May 24, 2012 (UTC)

Geez, Demise, leave us a little work to do! (Just joking there, I think it's important to take notice of the time you're spending here helping out. It's appreciated, and keep it up.)
Breywood 02:33, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Excellent work on the Zealot page. :))
Breywood 14:22, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

I have given you Rollback rights, happy hunting.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:04, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
As I mentioned above (Reporting Vandals), I always check IP edits. Even if anyone undoes their edits, or deletes their new pages, I will look at them all. You might wonder what the purpose of having other admins or rollback rights is if I am checking everything anyway, well it is so you can handle the problems faster when I am not here. I do not, however, check every registered user's edits. In the case that you detect a registered user has been misbehaving, report them to my talk page.
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:35, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
Nope, I can see rollbacks just fine. Maybe they are hidden from non-admins? I don't know, I'm a bureaucrat on both of the wikis I use.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:01, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I use Monobook as my wiki skin as I can't stand Wikia look. Recent Changes is easily accessible from Monobook and far more informative than Recent Activity.
◄► Tephra ◄► 00:03, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Alright, I suppose if you want a reporting page, you can create one at User:Tephra/Report.
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:32, May 27, 2012 (UTC)


Demise, it's been a long time since we last spoke, but I just wanted to say that you're doing a great job improving this wiki. In fact - and I saw your message on Tephra's talk page - even if he didn't want to make me an administrator or anything, I would have thought that he might have considered you. Don't worry, maybe in the future...none of us can deny that you've done a seriously decent job fighting vandalism and updating articles.

By now, I think you've noticed the ongoing dispute between me and several other users, and there have been serious demands for me to either leave or to resolve it soon...along with other much more irrelevant things - like, what does it matter what ethnicity I am? But I am planning on resolving this, as soon as I am able to. But I'd also like your advice on how to do so.
Granted, the articles were never perfect, yet I can't honestly say I like the newer versions all that much either. I'm really sorry about bothering you, but you've been a decent mediator before, and I'm still not entirely sure how to proceed from here, to either continue editing (to the extent I am able to), or to leave altogether. What do you think I should do? Ralnon (talk) 22:35, May 25, 2012 (UTC)


I do not understand the purpose of the Dash template. Typing out the template takes more characters than — and there is an dash button in the editor as well if you are incredibly lazy. In Monobook it is quite easy to access at the bottom of the editor, in Wikia look you have to open the more window, but either way takes no more time than typing out {{Dash}}. I really see no reason for this template...
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:58, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

Nav barEdit

I included most of your version, though I made a few modifications as well.
◄► Tephra ◄► 06:25, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Whimsyshire ARGEdit

I don't even know what that whole article is supposed to be about, it looksto me like a whole lot of random speculation and pointless drivel with excessive external links (including to other Diablo wikis, which I think is kind of discourteous). I'd really like to just delete it all, though I don't know much about D3 and there might actually be substance there I can't recognize due to ignorance. What is it you think I should do?
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:27, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

It was created by an anonymous IP. I don't go to users that don't register and offer then a chance to defend their work, they have to come to me. I will gather the opinions of the other admins and probably delete the page, if the contributors to it can give me a good reason for its existence, I might restore it.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:29, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
I was intending on adding the delete tag (which I've now done), but wanted to edit the template first. Don't worry, I wouldn't delete an article that wasn't obvious vandalism without giving anyone a chance to defend it first.
◄► Tephra ◄► 00:02, May 30, 2012 (UTC)
Hardly anyone even gives a reason for adding the tag, I'm sure even less would bother signing it. The tag now directs to the articles' talk pages where, if it is more than just vandalism, people can discuss the deletion. Do we have policies? I have no idea, I wasn't filled in on anything here when I took over, the last bureaucrat promoted me and then immediately left without ever editing here again. What kind of policies were you looking for? I think common sense is the best, all encompassing policy.
◄► Tephra ◄► 00:36, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Delete templateEdit

I know, I wanted it to catch the attention of editors, but it does look a little odd. You can try out different hues if you want, I'm not set on the current scheme.
◄► Tephra ◄► 19:49, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Items categoriesEdit

It would be possible, sure. It will be a lot of work, I think, to move all the items over to the new category though. If you're up for it, then go ahead.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:08, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

I think as you are adding the new categories, you should also remove the generic Category:Items from those same pages. The generic items category has way too many articles in it and should be hacked down to only include item sub-categories and items that do not fit into the sub-categories (for whatever reasons).
◄► Tephra ◄► 20:47, June 4, 2012 (UTC)
Well of course if it is too much work, I won't force you to do anything, but if you are adding a new items category while leaving the generic one there, it is just redundant. I guess if I have some time, I can also re-categorize pages so it isn't all on you. It is kind of stupid that you can add categories so easily, but not remove them at the same time...
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:31, June 4, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, using the templates will work much faster on any item pages that have templates. If they don't have any, it'll still need to be done the old-fashioned way.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:04, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

User pageEdit

Sorry about that

--Thea1029 17:41, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Offending commentsEdit

Is it a nuisance to just link to them as you did? As long as it works for you, I think your current method of reporting things fulfills the purpose adequately. Although I'd prefer if you made reports at User:Tephra/Report so my talk page isn't filled with vandalism reports.
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:23, June 17, 2012 (UTC)

Whatever, I'll move it. I don't really care where it is.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:15, June 18, 2012 (UTC)

Class categoriesEdit

I'm not sure I understand why you want to remove the categories. The Diablo II classes each have their own categories. While it may be true that they are currently redundant, our Diablo III coverage is still infantile at this time.
◄► Tephra ◄► 02:09, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Well I'd agree to removing it from skills pages, being overruled by the [Class] Skills category, but I don't think it should be removed from anything else.
◄► Tephra ◄► 02:43, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Presumably these will gain wider use as the wiki expands. Skill categories should also be sub-categories under the class categories. It would be odd, in my opinion, to remove categories you fully intend to use at a later date.
◄► Tephra ◄► 03:46, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! Edit

Don't be sorry. You've been on top of so many things happening that an opportunity to edit something was like a gift. Accidents happen. :)
Breywood 08:50, July 5, 2012 (UTC)


It doesn't matter if the admins running it are ineligible whether they live in the right nations or not, the point is, a large portion of the community is ineligible too. Personally, I think running a giveaway that excludes a significant percentage of your community is bad publicity rather than good. If they come along with another deal that extends to more than just two countries, we may be more willing to run it.
◄► Tephra ◄► 00:39, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

We don't need another admin, but we do seem to need someone in an admin position that is community-minded. So you're that person, Diablo Wiki's public relations representative. You get to run the new international 1 glasses giveaway. Oh, and I'll probably redirect any future community-builders over to you as well.
◄► Tephra ◄► 02:37, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
If you don't want the position, you can refuse. Don't take my choice of words too seriously, there was some sarcasm intermingled in there as I am a little upset at Breywood handling all of this on his own.
◄► Tephra ◄► 02:52, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
Consensus for what? If you meant the giveaway, the consensus is the rest of us don't want to do it. If you meant making you an admin, I am the only active bureaucrat here, it is kind of up to me. I don't really think it was all that sudden, you've already expressed interest in being an admin and I previously rejected you because I already had two. You weren't unwanted exactly, just unneeded, now we need you because the rest of the admins don't like community projects.
◄► Tephra ◄► 03:06, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
I misread what you wrote, ignore what I crossed out...
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:52, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
By the way, you can add the {{Administrator}} template to your user page if you want.
◄► Tephra ◄► 19:26, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Denise,

yes, this is still avail to you, glad you're interested, and no, it doens't have to include twitter. You guys can give the pair of glasses away however you want. I will supply you wtih a sample giveaway format page in a bit...

◄► Tephra ◄► 21:12, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

Unused FilesEdit

I have tried figuring that one out myself. I have contemplated cleaning them up multiple times, and every time, I couldn't decide just what should be kept and what should be tossed. Some of those images that seem completely pointless are actually used for the wiki's format itself, which is why they are listed as unused even though they are not. Other unused images really should be used, which means having to edit the articles that they belong to. Basically, it seems like any course of action ultimately leads to an ever-increasing chain of actions required to fulfill the initial action. I've just never had the patience for it. If you want to make an attempt, go ahead with whatever motives you want, only be careful not to get too delete-happy as deleted files cannot be recovered like articles can.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:13, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

Like I said, deleted files cannot be recovered. If you accidentally delete a file that shouldn't have been, it has to be re-uploaded. Deleted files are not "hidden" like deleted articles are, they are gone permanently, not even Wikia can recover them.
◄► Tephra ◄► 01:11, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
Well that's really strange... they must have changed it...
◄► Tephra ◄► 12:44, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

Related Video ModuleEdit

Hey there!

Just wanted to let you know that the related video module is coming soon to Diablo Wiki. Let me know if you have any questions!

Kate_03.png@fandom (talk) 20:37, August 3, 2012 (UTC)


Not a problem, both Hawki and I were here. Multiple admins exist for this reason, so no one person needs to be on duty all day.
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:54, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Gunnar giveaway Edit

I was contacted a day or two ago by email from Peter regarding the Gunnar Giveaway and attempted to redirect him to you. Has he contacted you by email yet?
Breywood (talk) 13:05, August 10, 2012 (UTC)


I don't care if it is enabled, but I will probably never use it as I generally view the wiki with Monobook which does not display who is available for chat nor has any links to it.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:43, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, didn't see you had reverted the comment on Sapphirewhirlwind's page before I edited a response, so don't think I was trying to overrule you or anything.

Wikia's Fantasy FellowshipEdit

Wikia is hosting a "Fantasy Fellowship" to commemorate The Hobbit and Hobbit Day!

Check out this blog on how Diablo Wiki can get involved!

Kate_03.png@fandom (talk) 21:58, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

Graphic additionsEdit

Demise101, when I made you our wiki "community manager", I basically gave you the right to make these kind of decisions on your own. If you feel really strongly about getting a consent from the admins/community, very well, but otherwise you are free to mess with anything community-interaction-wise that you feel will benefit the wiki.
◄► Tephra ◄► 01:28, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

For what it's worth...

LOTR doesn't feature into Diablo. While I loved the Hobbit, I do not consider him to be anything more than just another fantasy author whose magnus opus spent far too much time rambling about things that weren't related to the story. I'm firm in the opinion that the wiki doesn't need giveaways and promotion, but its popularity should be because of its content. On the other hand, there is nothing that is going to hurt the wiki by joining the Fantasy Fellowship, as it's about the genre, not just Middle Earth (apparently).
Breywood (talk) 12:30, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for considering!

Kate_03.png@fandom (talk) 04:26, September 17, 2012 (UTC)

Twitch TV Embed Interest?Edit

Hey there Demise!

It's me, Jorge, and I'm on Wikia's Community Development team. I'm the same one who helped out a lot on the DotA wiki. This time I actually want to reach out to gauge your wiki's potential interest in embedding some Twitch TV content. Both the Diablo wiki and the Dota wiki in fact.

To give some background, Wikia is interested in working with Twitch to get some native embeds for interested wikis. Twitch provides live-streaming of games, from simple lets-plays to massive tournaments and competitive events (particularly good for DotA). Embedding could allows users to easily find streaming content or get together to chat about particular events. If the wiki is interested, you could also have you very own wiki channel/group to stream content to users, make your own show, etc.

Do you think this is something the DotA or Diablo wiki community might be interested in? If so, how would you like to use it (home-page embed, its standalone page with just links or an actual embed? something else? Producing your own show? Etc.) Either way, let me know your thoughts by leaving a message on my talk page. Also, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Best, Jorge @fandom(profile)•(talk) 21:31, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

Videos on this wikiEdit

Wikia wants some feedback concerning videos on this wiki. Why the community likes to add them? What other types of videos you would like to see? What Wikia has done well? And what else you would like to see in relation to video on Wikia? If you wish to respond with your opinions on this subject, do so on Sarah Manley's talk page.
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:05, September 25, 2012 (UTC)

Gunnar WinnerEdit

Hi Demise, can you let me know who your winner was again? I didn't hear back from them and want to try to get in touch again... thanks, Peter@fandom 23:23, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! If they don't respond within 10 days you can select another winner.... cheers, Peter@fandom 00:42, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

Page deletionEdit

Why did you delete Remedy? The reason you gave was "Marked for Deletion", though I see no evidence of it having been, nor any reason why it should have been. Since there is nothing wrong with the article, I'm putting it back and assuming you somehow deleted it accidently as I honestly can't think of any other reason for its removal.
◄► Tephra ◄► 07:48, October 15, 2012 (UTC)

That sounds like a dangerous script to have, you should not be able to delete an article that easily by accident and not even notice.
◄► Tephra ◄► 21:03, October 15, 2012 (UTC)

HI, the winner of the Gunnar glasses never responded... what's your full name and address-- i'll send the pair to you!!!

Peter@fandom 23:35, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

Yapasts Edit

I was going to ban him for advertising for an item site, but I can't seem to be able to do more than delete his profile. I don't think he'll mind, though.
Breywood (talk) 12:20, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, just thought I'd stop by and say wow! Your profile is really an achievement. I know I'm not an admin, or the owner but thanks for contribtuing, so much on this wiki. Thanks, Ethan —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BlackFrost1417 (talk · contr).

Page deletion (again)Edit

You deleted Dragonscale which should not have been deleted and with a false reason given (no content), so I must assume this was another accidental deletion? Deleting random articles is a very serious matter, as an admin, you have the power to vandalize articles even worse than a regular vandal. Don't force me to revoke your admin status, which I will if this happens for a third time.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:14, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I suppose if it was a glitch by your browser or Wikia that forgot to finish loading the page, it was an understandable mistake. Nevertheless, if you find a blank page, you should check its history for vandalism before deleting it.

Game Guide AppEdit

Hey Demise101,

Wikia is excited to launch our Game Guides app very soon. The app features access to tens of thousands of wikis and their excellent content. As a popular wiki with a treasure trove of information, we think the Diablo wiki would be a great candidate for one the first curated games on the app! But first, we need your help. The Game Guide apps thrives on excellent categorization and a little bit of admin curation. Visit this page to learn more about curating your presense on the Game Guide app:

If you have any questions or need assistance curating the content for the app, please let me know and I will happily help you organize it. Just leave me a message on my talk page!

Best, Mira84 @fandom 21:35, January 23, 2013 (UTC)

I'd think it should be very similar to MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation. In fact, if you add more to the phone app, we should probably consider updating Wiki-navigation too.
◄► Tephra ◄► 11:17, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
Right. Those need to be updated in the Special:GameGuidesContent page in order to display properly in the app. If you need help updating it or would like us to do it, just let me know. Thanks, Mira84 @fandom 17:20, January 24, 2013 (UTC)

Updating the main pageEdit

Hey, I was just thinking about the Diablo Wiki's main page and how it is never updated. I'm just wondering if you might be interested in changing it from time to time. Mainly I'm talking about the DiabloIIISpotlight. Though the FeaturedArticle generator could use some additions as well, specifically the other Diablo III classes (only the barbarian and monk are included in the cycle right now). I'm asking you because those things don't actually add anything to the wiki, they merely make it more appealing to the visitors (i.e. a community relations sort of thing). If you don't feel like it though, that's fine.
◄► Tephra ◄► 00:16, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

The other classes would be a good choice, even if you only updated it once every two months, with four other classes, you'd have eight months to think of something else (though if you feel up to it, you could do a new spotlight every month). Possible candidates would be any major Diablo III article or concept, preferably with a good (even better; official) video to go with it. When I say concept, I mean you could spotlight something like Diablo III: Wrath if you wanted even though the article is short, of course when there is little to be said, it will make writing the spotlight harder too. Ultimately, I'll leave it up to you, do what you feel comfortable with.

Wikia AlliancesEdit

Hey Demise!

You may have seen Wikia's recently Alliances launch, which brings together a huge assortment of like-minded wikis around a certain genre of fiction: From Heroes, to Sci-Fi, to Fantasy. Signing up is a good way of promoting your awesome content and get access to some relevant notifications pertaining to the genre.

I wanted to reach out personally because I think the Diablo wiki would be a perfect fit for the Fantasy Alliance. You can learn more about the Alliances and sign-up here: Hope this helps!

Game Guides DisplayEdit

Hello again, as you may or may not know recently Wikia has released a new version of our Game Guides application on both the Apple Store and the Google Play store. We are hoping to target our audiences even further and try to bring this app more to their attention. For this reason, we have created a template promoting our application that we would like to place on your site with your permission of course. The template can be seen here (it shows what it would look like on both a light themed and dark themed wiki). The template would live in the upper-right column of this wiki, right below the advertisement. Please get back to me if it's ok to go ahead and enable this on here. - Wagnike2 (talk) 14:38, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

  • Currently, I believe it'd have the green outline and wouldn't be customizable. However, if it looks poorly enough I could look into adapting it more to matach the look of your wikis. - Wagnike2 (talk) 02:47, May 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • Went ahead and enabled this on Dota and here, unfortunately it has to have the green outline. Thanks for working with me/your cooperation on this. - Wagnike2 (talk) 16:50, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

◄► Tephra ◄► 18:37, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

Italic updatesEdit

You appear to be using the random page feature to update articles with the italicized titles, this method isn't very efficient or consistent. It would be preferable if you'd update articles in a series rather than individual articles. For instance, you updated the Exalted Mythical Staff today, but none of the other Crafted Staves. This leaves just one article in the middle of a series different from all the others in that series.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:45, September 30, 2013 (UTC)

Well the thing is, if some editor were looking through all the Crafted Staves and saw one of them was italicized and the others weren't, they would almost certainly feel more inclined to change the one rather than the many. I know you like to use the random page feature, but perhaps when you randomly come across a page that is part of a series, change the entire series, and then resume your randomizing. And, yeah I know I got the link wrong, I actually went back and checked before saving my message to make sure I got it right, saw it was wrong, then got distracted by something else and neglected to fix it anyway.

I did notice you started doing that, but of course I responded to your message before I checked the recent changes. Concerning the titles thing, I actually wasn't sure what you were talking about, but now after examining the article again, I believe you mean the section headers? The italics in section headers looks bad, in my opinion, in the underlined tiers anyway (that'd be =X= and ==X==, whereas ===X=== and below are no longer underlined). Italicized titles should only be within normal sentences. I really can't think of any occasion where a high tier section header should be italicized. If you disagree or Hawki see this and disagrees, we can take it back to the forum for proper discussion, but I feel quite strongly that an underlined section header should never be italicized. I tried to find a Wikipedia article with a published works title as a section header to see what their policy was, but couldn't find any instances (and I'm not going to sift through their 4 billion pages of guidelines to find it either).

Just want to point out that having PAGENAME as a template rather than typing out the name is ok as long as there is no additional information presented in the title of the page other than the name of the subject. It doesn't HURT to change it, but it doesn't really help considering how the viewer would see the exact same thing. Just a consideration so I do not waste any more of your time. Brainwasher5 (talk) 22:01, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Well, if you're fine with spending time with it, be my guest. I'm still going to use PAGENAME (when appropriate) though. Brainwasher5 (talk) 00:47, October 16, 2013 (UTC)

What class do you play as? (in all three)—The preceding unsigned comment was added by DominusMortem (talk · contr).


I noticed you haven't updated the Diablo III Spotlight on the main page for nearly a year, I had hoped it would be updated at least once every other month. Have you just forgotten or do you not want to take on this duty anymore? If you still want to do this, then take care to maintain a more consistent schedule. If, however, it is too much work, perhaps all of the admins could help contribute; either in providing ideas or we could have a cycle were we take turns writing up a spotlight.
◄► Tephra ◄► 14:59, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

I don't have D3 either, and while it would probably be ideal to spotlight D3, it is not necessary. Ironically, I'm not really sure if any of the admins here actually have D3.

D3 Skill reformat Edit

I like what you've done, but I think we have a ways to go yet.  I'm not fond of cramming the skill description in an infobox as it is presently and I prefer your layout, I also like how the skills are listed at the bottom.  I know I should be adopting the format, but I am a bit overloaded in real life and I'm not completely satisfied with the format, so I'm just going to import the game guide info for now.  Anyway, for what it's worth, the rework is a step in the right direction, and thanks.
Breywood (talk) 19:47, February 12, 2014 (UTC)

Looking at the skills, obviously I'm coming from a biased position, but I've found the scrawls of text in the monk articles to be messy and doesn't do a good job at quickly conveying info. Ideally (in my mind), both would be present. The info box gives the description, image, cooldown and cost, an overview section covers the skill as a whole, and a skill runes sub-section lists the runes and at what level they're unlocked. I've been applying such a format to the here. That, and sourcing them as well - same has applied to the monk skills that I've worked on.
Agree that we have to have a standard format, but I'd rather make the article as a whole presentable rather than just copy-pasting skills from the guide without any thought to the formatting.--Hawki (talk) 04:00, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
The format of the monk skills was just an initial touch up (removing <br />s and adding the skill template), I also expressed a desire to add an infobox in. With one of my more recent revisions, I had also come to the conclusion that a rune sub-section would be good, but I wasn't aware you had already done it. In regards to the Diablo III infoboxes, I personally didn't like the aesthetics of the new one, with a 1px wide red border and larger width, mostly because it cuts into the text too much. Overall, if we want to have a standardised format, the real question is do we use the D2 skill format or a completely separate one? If we make a new one, should we change the D2 format to follow suit? ~ Demise101 ♥ Lets Talk! ♥ Blogs! ~ 09:28, February 13, 2014 (UTC)
I'd also agree that an infobox is a good idea with what info Hawki mentioned and provide it as a quick summary.  I think it would be best if we made it a separate format as the skill mechanics are a bit different but leave the D2 one as is.  My only issue with the infobox for the D3 skills is that it has the entire skill description crammed into it with hardly anyhting else and I think defeats the purpose of having and infobox.

An ApologyEdit

This may come a little late after the events early last month, but...

I apologies all that nudity images upload thing.

That was...well...stupid thing to do and it will never happen again. At the time I was little drunk and though it would be funny thing do to (and not against any rules), but of course it really wasn't. --D1D2D3 (talk) 22:38, March 11, 2014 (UTC)

Hellfire ringEdit

The alternate fifth Hellfire Ring. Also, the reason "(other)" is not caps while the other rings are is because the other traits are proper attributes whereas "other" is just a word used because the fifth ring doesn't offer any attributes.
◄► Tephra ◄► 02:18, April 6, 2014 (UTC)

They need to be updated to say there is a fifth, I just didn't feel correcting them was a high priority until after the fifth was actually added to the wiki.

Golden chestEdit

I am concerned with your change to Golden chest. A little history first. Before I added information for the Diablo III chests, Golden chest was redirecting to the Chests page, which at the time was describing Diablo II chests. I changed the Chests page to be a redirect, and moved what was the Chests page to Chests (Diablo II). When I made this change, I redirected Golden chest to Golden Chest, which at the time also pointed to Chests, so I had to redirect that to Chests (Diablo II). So all this is to say that I believe Golden chest should not redirect to Chests (Diablo III), but to the Diablo II page instead. Let me know if you disagree. Nebiksrazu (talk) 11:27, April 15, 2014 (UTC)


Created that category by accident. I deleted it.
◄► Tephra ◄► 02:17, July 31, 2014 (UTC)


Whoops, didn't mean to add the Trivia category to the Ghosts N Stuff achievement page. Just wanted to add the Trivia section for the song info. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk · contr).

That's fine, the category applies for the entire page though, not just the section, so I removed it :) ~ Demise101 ♥ Lets Talk! ♥ Blogs! ~ 08:34, September 23, 2014 (UTC)


Hi, Demise. Well, the @Wahr file is a random name found on the Net (I did not change it). As for the other images: I normally use screenshots from [], which I have permission to include in our wiki. They are done as follows: X_Y_Z, where X is number of an Act in which the monster is found (1-5), Y is name, and Z is the screenshot number (a,b,c,d etc). I do not rename them, as this is fairly well organized. Basically I only rename files with meaningless random names, like 1abb6dex761.jpg. If you feel like renaming them manually, I do not mind at all. Just make sure you finish everything else beforehand, because this will take a while. Pryamus (talk) 09:30, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

Wikia project Edit

Hi Demise101. This is Brandon from Wikia. We're about to begin a project that's part of our Fan Studio, and the project is based around major fandom moments from 2014. To give a bit of context, Fan Studio is a program where fans on Wikia can be connected with brands from the entertainment and video gaming industries. Fans get to interact with brands and share opinions that could impact final products and releases, or whatever it may be that a partner brand is working on.

Right now we are working on a project with a partner where fans get to help collaborate on creating videos around specific moments in fandom from 2014. One of the moments is the release of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. A Diablo fan will be paired with a video creator from our partner, and the two would then collaborate on creating a video telling the story of Reaper of Souls' release. The fan's participation could be as much as editing, writing, narrating, or even appearing in the video, or as limited as serving as a behind the scenes consultant.

Would you have any interest in joining this project? If so, I can send you an email (using the email address in your Wikia account) with more information. Let me know, thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 14:18, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you for getting back to me so fast, and for your recommendation. Much appreciated! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 22:00, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Fallen AngelEdit

Pleas restore the Fallen Angel page. That is a term uses in Diablo so Deleteing it was incorrect. Some people hare are just wanting to delete more and more and they only uses you to do their dirty work, so restore the page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vendanis (talk · contr).

Hi Vendanis, the person that marked the page for deletion was a fellow administrator. Here is the discussion. If you can provide reasoning on that page as to why the article should be restored (and it would have to be a bit stronger than "it's wrong, people are lying so restore it") I'd be happy to do so. Ultimately the page was deleted because there wasn't really much supporting the page and the discussion had died, so if there is a defender it'll probably return. ~ Demise101 ♥ Lets Talk! ♥ Blogs! ~ 03:33, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

Year in Fandom VideoEdit

Hi Demise,

I was hoping to promote this video on the mainpage of the Diablo wiki's mainpage.

I know that there isn't much room for video content on the mainpage and the only place i see it is for the reaper of souls expansion trailer. Do you think it would be possible to put this somewhere? Perhaps even on the right rail?

If i should ask Tephra instead, I'd be happy to do so...

Let me know your thoughts or concerns,

Knakveey (talk) 21:38, December 2, 2014 (UTC)Knakveey


Unfortunately, I can't tell the difference since I normally use the monobook skin, which always has white backgrounds. If it only happened quite recently, it is possible it is an unintentional bug caused by something else and they will eventually change it back. However, if they don't, about how many templates are affected by this?
◄► Tephra ◄► 08:47, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

Well we can give them a few weeks to see if they correct the issue, and if not, we can manually fix the backgrounds on any affected templates. So just keep track of any that you see so we have a list of which ones will need tweaking should it come to that.

Portable InfoboxesEdit

We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!

Why we’re doing this

Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.

There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:

Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.

We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.

Tools we’ve designed to ease the process

We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.

The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.

This is our help page for the new markup. I’ll help get things rolling by converting a template or two as an example if you’d like me to, as well as watching this forum post for any questions.
