Hazir's undo-revision Edit

On 7/21/18, you edited Abd al-Hazir's page, making several relatively minor edits, though primarily removing a quote of his that I recently added. Granted, I made an attempt at adding some context as well (which I'd argue that quotes section desperately needs) so as explain why he's saying what he says, and maybe that's why you removed it? - or maybe this wikia denies the existence of the secretive alcoves in the Ruins of Sescheron, and as that quote references it, you're attempting to keep it hidden? Rest assured, they do exist, and Hazir says exactly what I typed out when you enter one of these many alcoves when he's following the player around. Either/or, I'd like to add it back with your blessing ...by all means, test it yourself if you don't believe me. Dsurian (talk) 00:17, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

My statusEdit

I'm just letting you and Pryamus know that while I have not been editing the wiki very much lately, I do still check in every day. I just don't feel like I have much left to do here as I have still never played D3 and don't really feel any motivation to ever do so. Although I have been tempted to retire, that time has not yet arrived, and I will promote a replacement bureaucrat before then and inform you or any other active admins of my intentions. If you need anything from me or have anything to say regarding the wiki, I am still fully available - albeit slightly quiet.

Wiki spiff Edit

Heya, Hawki ;)

FANDOM and Blizzard have partnered up to help promote Diablo III: Eternal Collection. As part of that, we were wondering if we could do a bit of a spiff for the main page. We're thinking an updated background, swapping the spotlight area with the Eternal Collection blurb and video. The assets will be provided by Blizz :) Also, since the Games Guide App is no longer supported, do you mind if we remove that from the right rail?

Best regards,

Sounds good to me - let me get back to you with an official word, however ;) And thank you! Raylan13@fandom (talk) 15:13, October 16, 2018 (UTC)
All righty :) The official word for the background is yes on both counts - you will not only get a preview of the background, but you can also roll it back roughly a month after the launch of the Eternal Collection. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 20:35, October 16, 2018 (UTC)
We've made the tweaks :) Hopefully they don;t seem intrusive - but please let me know if there are any concerns! Raylan13@fandom (talk) 21:45, October 25, 2018 (UTC)

Blizzard reached out to us with a specific ask that sounded interesting - they're holding an across-the-internet scavenger hunt and were wondering if they (through us, ofc) could "hide" a weapon the main page? Apparently they'll issue a social media clue and users race to find what site it's on. Looks like it would start 10/30 and run through 11/9.

Would you mind terribly if we helped with this? Raylan13@fandom (talk) 23:07, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

From what I can tell, it would be an image with a QR code - Blizz provides the image, so I'm not sure which one it would be. From the example provided to us, it looks like it wouldn't be very large, either, so probably just able to be tucked in the right rail. If it's larger, I'd imagine we could place it anywhere on the page, even at the bottom near the footer. Raylan13@fandom (talk) 16:00, October 27, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks :) I'll pass it along to the powers that be! Raylan13@fandom (talk) 21:36, October 27, 2018 (UTC)

High Heaven & Burning Hells StrengthEdit

Hello Hawki, been a while hasn't it, looks like things have been busy since I have been gone haven't they? I was hoping that I could get your help with determining something. If you remember correctly, I have been making my own wikia site for crossover faction battles, I have been busy with a lot of things myself. I was hoping that I can get your help with determining the strength of some of both High Heaven's and Burning Hells' major players (even some of their units with any description), such as Imperius, who iirc has enough power to destroy the world of Sanctuary many times over, and Diablo who can match him in combat, and likely higher as the Prime Evil? I await your reply.--CNBA3 (talk) 01:33, December 8, 2018 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Sorry, I meant Tyrael’s Brother, been a while since I read up on diablo lore, this was also referenced in the Sin War Novels. Some other feats referencing characters such as Tyrael being faster than the eye can see. Or his brother creating a massive ice storm where it’s hail can create craters in the earth itself. And can create mountains with just a gesture.

As for Diablo, if we take into consideration that the High Heavens could be the size of a planet, Diablo was planning on destroying it as the Prime Evil.--CNBA3 (talk) 13:18, December 8, 2018 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Ok, thanks, just one last thing to add before I get start, with the Wizards, from lore, they were said that their spells have time and time again to have brought the world to the brink of destruction. And with the nephalem wizard she is said to be the most powerful of the wizards, that would be reason un of itself for various high level enemies to scale to her wouldn’t it?--CNBA3 (talk) 14:48, December 10, 2018 (UTC)

Category categories vandalismEdit

I don't know why we get so many IPs trying to put every category page into the wrong categories, but I think we could start permanently protecting categories against anonymous editors whenever one of them gets edited. Normally, pages shouldn't get permanent protection, but there are few legitimate reasons to ever edit categories anyway, much less a reason for an unregistered user doing it. It's up to you if you feel like doing it, of course, but I have already protected a couple myself.
◄► Tephra ◄► 10:03, December 28, 2018 (UTC)

Yes, that is what I meant. Preemptively protecting categories would be very difficult since we have so many of them. If we could give a bot admin rights, it could do it for us, but I don't know anything about bots or if they are permitted to do admin tasks. With that out, just protecting categories as they fall victim seems best.

Diablo Wiki DiscordEdit

What do you think of a Discord channel for the Diablo Wiki? It might make it easier to discuss things than the limited formats on the wiki itself and might forge a stronger community for the wiki. I'll create one only if both you and Pryamus think it is a good idea.
◄► Tephra ◄► 13:50, April 20, 2019 (UTC)

Have you used Discord and don't like it, or never used it before?
◄► Tephra ◄► 03:00, April 23, 2019 (UTC)
If you didn't like it, I'd say fair enough. But since you've never used it before, I'll suggest you do consider joining the Diablo Wiki Discord at least. It is free and easy to use, you can use it directly over your browser or download the application (I'd recommend downloading it).

Main PageEdit

I noticed a red link on the Main Page under Background and saw that you deleted it. It doesn't really matter that you deleted it, other than there shouldn't be a red link on the main page. I wonder if you would be willing to update that section; remove the broken link obviously, but maybe add a few new lore-related articles that might be interesting?

Replacing DH page with DH (Diablo III) Edit

Okay, I see we need to do that... Can you also replace the gameplay mentions of Demon Hunter with Demon Hunter? I can do it manually in skill pages etc., but is there a better solution?

At very least, we gotta replace it in skill templates and stuff. Pryamus (talk) 12:45, July 19, 2019 (UTC)

Deckard CainEdit

Was anything of what 14.140.167.254 wrote on Deckard Cain accurate? If that was 100% fabricated, I must admit that they are a skilled troll. It was poorly written, obviously, but also seemed pretty reasonable up until the "lusty man" part.
◄► Tephra ◄► @fandom 16:24, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

Don't forget the part about "Trishtram" 🤣 – Rmkane (talk) 17:29, August 5, 2019 (UTC)
I did say it was poorly written. Bad spelling and grammar alone doesn't identify a troll.

AnalyticsEdit

So in case you didn't see the blog, you can now use Special:Analytics to see useful and interesting traffic data for this (or any other) wiki.

DiscussionsEdit

Would you like to have Discussions enabled on this wiki? I personally would not, but if there is a consensus against me, I might have to go with the will of the community.
