Re: ItemsEdit

That's something you should ask Tephra about. I'm inclined to say that each item should have its own page and be updated as needed for what it's worth. I think the template system works satisfactorily as is right now.--Hawki (talk) 23:59, May 10, 2014 (UTC)

VandalsEdit

It is not advisable to talk to anonymous IP vandals as it may only encourage them further. Generally, an admin will quickly spot them and take action, but if you think someone is behaving exceptionally bad, you may report them here.
◄► Tephra ◄► 05:55, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

Understood. Well, just don't like them ever since I started to edit wiki projects... But overall, I agree with you. Could not resist, sorry. Pryamus (talk) 06:02, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
P.S. And that one at least has gone silent...

BountiesEdit

Hi I have heaps more but not sure how to add them corectly is there a way i can message you what i have and you can do it correctly? i am currently in chat.

  • I have over 70 bounties currently for act 1 can i just give them to you?

Hellfire ringsEdit

10 rings? Blizzard's database only lists 5 rings, where are the other 5?
◄► Tephra ◄► 00:01, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

I don't really see a need for the articles to be merged. Blizzard has a separate page for each ring. I guess if you can give me a reason other than the fact that they are nearly identical, as that alone I don't consider a good reason.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:34, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
There already is a page called just Hellfire Ring. Currently it is a disambiguation for the other five rings. If you want to expand it into a general HFR article, that's fine.
◄► Tephra ◄► 04:42, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Item pagesEdit

What is the reason behind changing the section headers on item pages to say Stats (Level x) when the level is already mentioned in the article? This seems superfluous and somewhat messy-looking to me.
◄► Tephra ◄► 20:19, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

There are no rules against it, I just think it looks sloppy to have that in a section header. How we present information should be how Blizzard presents it, but I haven't seen anything concerning dynamic stats, so I don't really know how it is conveyed. I compared the Fleeting Strap article with the Game Guide entry, and the stats are identical, but the Game Guide gives no indication that those stats are only for level 70 (it also looks like the article here is missing a lot of crafting information). So am I missing something or is Blizzard just ignoring the concept of dynamic stats?
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:03, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
Well I guess you can keep doing what you were doing then. I would have preferred to have written the 'level x' information elsewhere from the section header, but if it's already that way in a hundred or so pages, there's little sense if going back over them all. As for crafting, I'm not sure what you mean by the Magic template, the Magic template only makes the text violet. Before the item update, I just wrote all of the items and their amounts in.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:37, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

I suppose a template could be made that could hold a certain number of materials, identified by the editor by article, though we'd need to figure out the maximum amount of materials required by a single item. Is this something along the lines of your thinking?

Plan: Fleeting Strap
Gold64,800
Archon Sash1
Arcane Dust12
Veiled Crystal22
Forgotten Soul2
Death's Breath4
Element of Celerity1

Re: Article ImprovementEdit

I don't have any particular suggestions for article improvement, more or less just carry on as is. Fact of the matter is, practically everything on the wiki needs improvement or inclusion of some kind. If you want the full story, the wiki used to have different adminship (guy called Dannr), when the wiki picked up steam after D3 was announced (at which point it had less than 500 articles). I think D3 kinda dampened enthusiasm, hence the hodge podge of different info.

Anyway, yeah, monster and item articles seem to be where your strengths and passions lie, so keep at it. BTW, you may want to look at this if you have time - I've attempted to standardize epigraphs, so if you don't have any objections, it'll be good to use for all intro quotes for monster articles (using the act they appear in as the source).--Hawki (talk) 02:38, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

Deleting old articlesEdit

I'd really need to know which ones need deleting versus which ones are just stubs that need expanding. If you don't want to edit each article to add the template, what about just compiling a list of page titles and posting it on my talk page?
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:21, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hexing PantsEdit

Why did you go about deleting all my synergy sections concerning Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan? When a person is crowd controlled, it detrimentally affects the bonus from the pants. Reducing the time of this control effect will thus synergize well with the pants.
Your favorite Demon Hunter,
  Nebiksrazu (talk) 13:49, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Hexing pants reduce damage when standing still. CC makes the player stand still. Thus, reducing the time of the CC will allow the player to begin moving sooner. When the player is moving they will again gain the bonus from the pants. Reducing CC directly affects the player's damage when using these pants.
Your favorite Demon Hunter,
  Nebiksrazu (talk) 14:04, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
The note is great. I still think Ice Climbers are noteworthy though. Would you be opposed to adding the Synergy section back in, but only put Ice Climbers and Fire Walkers in it?
Your favorite Demon Hunter,
  Nebiksrazu (talk) 14:14, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
From what I have read, they are good with an actively mobile skill like Whirlwind for the barb or Strafe for DH. Also good with a Wand of Woh centered wizard. I don't know if it affects pets, but if it does they would be amazing for a pet doc.

Edit TrendsEdit

Okay, I have to interject at this point. While your edits are constructive overall, there are a no. of trends I want to address:

  • Images: Please categorize images you upload. If you don't want to attribute sources in the upload description, fine - I can live with that. But a lack of categorization runs the risk of them being lost in the event they're taken out of an article.
  • Language Style: There's two trends I want to address in your writing of articles. The first is the use of "you" when dealing with items/monsters, as in "you will want to use this item/kill this monster." The use of second person is generally frowned upon as it's considered an unprofessional writing form—in this context, it is far better to use "(the) player(s), depending on how the article is based on. You're not the only one to do this, but the less use of "you," the better.

The second part is joking quirks. There's no key example, but I've noticed a few times when captions in images have been intentionally joke-based, such as the Cuddle Bear text of "It may look funny, but on adequate difficulty they can tear her apart in 5 seconds." Yes, it's true, and yes, it's based on a joke article. But the language is very iffy because it's a case of "author's voice," where the author is bringing personal interpretation into something. That's inevitable in some cases (e.g. item uses), but in such cases, it's superfluous. If people find something funny, they can do it on their own terms. It isn't the provision of an editor to try and provide that humor for them, especially since Diablo is in the dark fantasy genre, where humor is the exception rather than the rule.

  • Referencing: The soul article is a recent example. No, you're by far not the only one to not take this into account, but if you're editing lore-based articles, the lore needs sources. The average item or monster article won't need a source because its game of origin is specified, and it stands to reason that all info presented in said article (in a gameplay sense) will come from the game itself, and is down to author interpretation anyway. Lore is different because it comes from a variety of sources. Heck, the soul article, small as it is, cites 7 sources, 8 if you include the epigraph, and some of the info you posted is still in need of a source. Posting lore-based info without sources runs the risk of allowing false information to be inserted without notice, and undermines a wiki's credibility. Same reason why bibliographies are in reference books.

If, for whatever reason, you can't follow these guidelines, you don't have to worry too much. Your edits are very much net positive. But as someone with limited time, and the need to split up 'wiki time' across numerous wikis, it would make my job a lot easier if the amount of 'cleanup' I had to do was reduced.--Hawki (talk) 12:12, June 15, 2014 (UTC)

I've looked up the relevant D1/D2 spells and added the info. Kulle is iffy though, as it's more a case of him never actually being killed rather than having his soul summoned back (Horadrim couldn't kill him, hence why they divided his body).--Hawki (talk) 14:16, June 15, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Unique monster pagesEdit

That sounds great. Unique monsters was where I was planning on going next, so more information before I create those pages would be great. Your examples look fine to me, I can't think of a better way to organize them right now. So how do you want to share this information? I think a google doc would be pretty great, so as to not clutter each other's talk pages with monster info.

Succubus imagesEdit

I was examining your user page and saw where you wrote "I want to add a pic to Succubus article, but there are little to no censored screenshots of them." I don't know what the uncensored screenshots you're thinking of depict, but Wikia allows graphic images as long as they fit the context of the wiki. Unedited screenshots taken directly from the game would be acceptable. Fanart or any other non-Blizzard pictures of succubi with graphic content would start crossing the line, and would probably be removed by an admin.
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:47, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

There was a time when Wikia was coming down hard on all nudity, however, they got a bit of backlash from the community saying their censorship policies were going a bit overboard. Wikia set the context policy, which as far as I know, is still the latest ruling on the matter. Unless Wikia staff come here and tell us otherwise, all official Blizzard-made images are permitted, no matter what they depict, as long as they are being used properly in the proper articles. If any non-Wikia staff say otherwise, tell them to take it up with Wikia (or me).
◄► Tephra ◄► 19:17, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Legendary formatEdit

Hmm... did not know items changed by season. Honestly, I'd say you be the judge, but if you are really concerned about making a bad choice, make up a sample of each variation so you/I/anyone can look them over. I don't think I can make an informed choice without actually seeing what you are suggesting.
◄► Tephra ◄► 18:40, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

Seems fine, although it occurs to me that Diablo II had Ladder-only items. While not the same thing, I suppose they are similar in a way. You could see an example of how it was done for D2 items here. Whether you want to try mimicking that style or not is up to you.
◄► Tephra ◄► 19:55, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

I hope in your message to Ishi Clarke, you weren't implying that he steal images from someone else's website, that would not be good.
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:39, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

If someone takes a screenshot of their game, even though the game belongs to Blizzard, the screenshot belongs to them. We cannot use other people's works without their permission or attribution. That website is copyrighted, and I don't see anywhere on it where the author gives permission to use its contents. If any images are lifted off a site when the author hasn't given permission and the images are published here without attribution, they are stolen.
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:57, June 24, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure what kind of advice you're looking for, but I guess my advice is don't publish any images you did not create yourself or from any site that is not operated by Blizzard (who has legally released all of their content for non-commercial use). There are some sites that do give permission, but it makes everything much simpler to not even bother looking for them. If you want to try getting permission from individual people, go right ahead, but in my opinion, the effort involved isn't worth it. Copyrights are complicated, and I hardly understand them myself, so I prefer to stay as clear from copyright infringements as possible and walk the better safe than sorry route.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:10, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

That depends, do the picture we already have have attributions in their descriptions? If not, they either need them added, or they have to go. Technically, we should dump everything that was acquired without permission, but attributions are required on content licensed under CC-BY-SA. Most likely many of the images found on random websites are not CC-BY-SA, but the authors probably won't complain if we treated them as if they were. If they do complain, we can just remove their specific images. Whenever an image is uploaded here, it is supposed to have the Licensing on it (a lot of people ignore licensing, including me Diablicon Shock). If you can't find a license that works with the image, you shouldn't use the image. So for images lifted off random websites, we have:

  • Fair Use? Nope, this might work for Uncyclopedia, but we really have no reason to declare Fair Use here.
  • Own Image? Obviously not...
  • Wikimedia? Obviously not...
  • Free Licenses? Well here's where CC-BY-SA falls, which if we give attributions, we can say they are (unless the author complains).
  • Public Domain? We will almost certainly never upload public domain images to the Diablo Wiki.
  • Copyrighted, but with Author's Permission? This is the license we should be using, but need the authors permission first.

Basically, this means if we have images here without attribution, permission, or proper license, they are stolen. Blizzard already gave their permission in the legal section on their site, so everything we have taken from the data base and Arreat Summit are ok (these should use the Copyrighted, but with Author's Permission license), and everything uploaded by the person who created the image (including screenshots) is ok (should use the Own Image license).

That's good. Diablicon Smile

Re: Images...againEdit

Well, not again per se, but thought it better to separate talk page entries. Anyway, I can see the image fine, but I wouldn't worry about it. The inability to see certain images is more a wiki glitch than a user one. Happens every so often, but usually resolves itself within a short period of time.--Hawki (talk) 11:48, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Happy B-day!!!!!

New versionsEdit

Well, yes, it is sometimes normal, there can be a delay in updating both in your browser's cache and Wikia's. However, you should still be able to see the correct version by clicking on the individual version previews, but I am seeing no difference between them. I checked on Blizzard's database, and both images here look identical to the image there, so I'm not sure what the difference is supposed to be.
◄► Tephra ◄► 22:42, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I am also seeing the DH version. I do not know why Wikia isn't displaying the new version (through the previews at the least). You could wait a day or so to see if Wikia ever updates or I could try uploading the new version as well to see what happens. I did notice the file sizes are different though, so unless you modified the image, it would seem they are not the same and Wikia is just not showing it.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:18, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
I am now seeing the new WD version, so I guess it has finally updated.
◄► Tephra ◄► 03:51, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

I think you've taken enough onto your plate already, there's no need to further burden yourself with simple wiki maintenance. The reason I am removing them is because I am retiring Category:Set Items as it is far too generic and had several hundred pages in it. Instead, I am putting the pages for complete sets into Category:Diablo n Item Sets and the individual pieces into their specific set's category. Once all pages have been removed from Category:Set Items, the category will be deleted. I do not think new categories for set piece by item type is necessary, although if a set item is pants, it could still safely be added to Category:Pants.
◄► Tephra ◄► 06:43, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

Another note, Set Items are only one part of my over-categorization removal project. I've noticed you've added many pages to categories and I'd actually prefer that you not add any items to categories unless that item doesn't have any categories yet. I appreciate your efforts toward this wiki, but you have personally caused a fair bit of the over-saturation of categories I am now working to clear out.
◄► Tephra ◄► 06:58, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

On a similar note, please see this. The consensus is more or less that monster categories (among other things) shouldn't be superlative (e.g. your average Reaper monster would only go in Category: Reapers (the group) and Category: Act 5 Bestiary (Diablo III), rather than also being in Category: Monsters, and Category: Diablo III Monsters.--Hawki (talk) 09:33, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

Filenames Edit

Hi Pyramus,

I'd like to ask what the @ is in File:@Wahr.jpg, as well as the number and the "c" at the end of many of your filenames mean (e.g File:1 Super Awesome Sparkle Cake c.jpg). If possible, could you add a user-space template or find some way of uniformly explaining for your system? It leads to some confusing: An example would be Pontius]] - I'm not sure why the second filename couldn't be Pontius_transformed or something similar, nor can I discern why there is a 5 in front of both. In another case, you've also uploaded files with seemingly random names (File:8s0EB.jpg). You've changed your format from 5 days ago (going off of the upload feed), from File:AngelWar.jpg to the current. If we could set up some completely uniform system for filenames to apply to the entire wiki I'd be happy to start shifting things manually. ~ Demise101 ♥ Lets Talk! ♥ Blogs! ~ 08:32, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

I might end up renaming the images to plain descriptive filenames, simply because the number (X) probably isn't as useful as you'd think for categorisation purposes (having a category dedicated to screenshots would be more efficient because you can find them more easily), but the number of screenshots might stay depending on whether there are better alternatives (like a separate filename). Thanks for letting me know! ~ Demise101 ♥ Lets Talk! ♥ Blogs! ~

AbbreviationsEdit

I noticed you linked a couple pages to "CC". There are two minor problems with this I thought I should point out. Firstly, if you know where the correct link goes, you should link there directly and not rely on redirects to do the work for you. Secondly, unless the same article explains what it means, abbreviations should not be used within the main text body; you should never assume people visiting the wiki know what all the shortened terms mean.

Hello! Thank you for your kindly answer. I was aware of that Magic article and I read it before send you a message, hopping to find an answer to my question, without bothering anybody. Its a shame that they only use them as "decoration" but for what I read they create Diablo lore on the march until the Sin War books, that's why there are so many inconsistencies with old lore and the new one is cannon since then. Well, seems to be the writings in the cinematics of Act 3 and 4 doesn't have any meaning too, or I'm wrong?

Hi again! I was talking about cinematics of D2, sorry for not being precise. I didn't play D3 yet and I found interesting what you say about Leah's writings. Yes, time and budget dictate what can be done and what not, since creating a language implies both of them and considerable effort.

While still searching for answers I found very interesting and intriguing stuff related to Diablo writing. If you are curious too, I can give you a hint: "Dictionary of occult hermetic alchemical sigils symbols"

Re: Pop CultureEdit

To my knowledge, it's on a by-wiki basis. A wiki can certainly draw up its own trivia policy (certainly the SC wiki has one, for better or worse), but to my knowledge, this wiki doesn't. Maybe that should change.

Far as I'm concerned, the references as they are now are on an individual basis, and it's more or less up to consensus as to what counts or not - for the Goosebumps trivia for instance, if Tephra weighed on on it and said "yes, it's a reference," I'd go along with it. Concerning writing, my stance is to never use "is" unless it's outright confirmed, even if it's almost certainly a reference. IMO, it's better to phrase it as "possibly" or "likely" or "draws parallels with." It's a bit semantic, but I think this is the best approach to distinguish things from cases where the ref has been outright stated, where we can say without reservation that "x came from y."--Hawki (talk) 09:36, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

There are no rules on trivia, but as Hawki says, we should not state a possible reference as fact unless Blizzard has confirmed it. Aside from that, I usually prefer to find at least two parallels between something and what it seems to be referencing before making the connection. Of course, if the inspiration is blatant, even one will suffice; so too, if even multiple signs are still pretty vague, it might be insufficient. It has to come down to a personal judgment with which not everyone might concur, the idea is that a majority would. If you think more people would disagree with the trivia, or consider it far from conclusive, then it probably shouldn't be added. I generally ignore most trivia people choose to add though unless it is stupid or just plain wrong. Trivia is just trivial.

InfoboxesEdit

I have no idea why it isn't working, I tried several different things, and it just ignores it all. It might be best to rewrite the templates completely so we can make them compatible with mobile devices at the same time.
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:30, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

Are the D3 infoboxes mobile compatible? Wikia is pushing for wikis to update their infoboxes for mobile compatibility, and as annoying as that is, we should pursue it as well, especially since we're needing to update them anyway.

Hello again.

Would you mind erasing Warriors & Paladins from the Diablo III mechanic or would you want me to do it?

That is just what is confusing as it has nothing to do with Warrior & Paladin from Diablo I & II.

Skill FormatEdit

Hey! My suggestion is that each article about skills should be as follows. I saw you edited it back, so let me just clarify the concept:

Skill is a Class skill from the Skill Tree skill tree. *extremely simple, short description of what it does*

Description

  • clear, 4-paragraph description of the skill, benefits, drawbacks*

Synergies

  • synergies, if any*

Lore

  • the somewhat schizophrenically worded description that Blizzard gives the skill*

Trivia / else

PotionsEdit

I was rather confused by the whole Leech/Rejuvination thing, at least someone around here knows what's going on. Diablicon Wink

AdminEdit

You have been promoted to an admin. I've given you these rights because I know you work with new wiki images a lot and I would like someone who knows when new images are coming in to also delete old images that are no longer useful, as our list of unused images has topped 1000 (the cache limit). You don't have to go out of you way to clean them out if you don't want to, in fact you don't have to do anything if you don't want to; this is not a requirement or extra burden, it is a request. Images that might have a future use can stay, but images that will only collect dust in the Wikia servers should be removed.
◄► Tephra ◄► 13:49, September 6, 2015 (UTC)

Good. You are, of course, an admin in all other aspects as well, and you may add the Administrator template to your user page if you want.
◄► Tephra ◄► 14:02, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
There must be, since I don't have to confirm a deletion, but I don't know where the setting might be. Unless you mean where you select a reason for the deletion, in which case no. By the way, I noticed you deleted the Favicon.ico. Unless I'm mistaken, that is actually used by the wiki itself for the web page favicon, though is listed "unused" as it is not used in any articles. You have to be careful that some images are not actually unused. It is best to leave images that are not .jpg, .png, or .gif alone.

CSS for tables Edit

Hi, I'm working on a project to modernize the HTML on tables on various D2 pages such as Shiver Armor. I've made some CSS rules to achieve the same look as the tables with CSS instead of inline styles and deprecated HTML attributes. This not only makes the code more readable, it also allows new tricky, like sorting the tables without jumbling the row shading, letting admins edit the style for all tables sitewide at once, showing different styles in Wikia and Monobook skins, etc.

As a test, I used the new CSS on the oskill article, which features a sortable table.

For another test case on how the CSS will affect existing articles, I made a draft at User:Rigel Kent/Shiver Armor (diff).

I'd like to make the CSS sitewide, but I need an admin to do so. If you like how it works, please add the contents of User:Rigel Kent/wikia.css to MediaWiki:Wikia.css, and User:Rigel Kent/monobook.css to MediaWiki:Monobook.css (also fixes a text contrast problem in Monobook). I didn't mess with the mobile skin, since tables are currently unstyled in the mobile skin. Rigel Kent (talk) 01:54, September 8, 2015 (UTC)

Gaming footers Edit

Hi, Pryamus!

I was wondering if you had an opinion on this site being included in the new gaming footers? We'd love for the Diablo community to be included!

Best regards,

Raylan13@fandom (talk) 16:55, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

Consider Diablo listed and approved ;) Benefits revolve around ways to increase Diablo's visibility by creating pages on our main gaming sites that link to this one (the hub and gamia) and, of course, being included in the footer that is placed on every RPG site. People who are interested in one RPG may very well be interested in another - plus, it helps to group together like-minded communities :) Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:14, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

CSS edit request Edit

Hi, I've coded some neat new features for navboxes, but they need site-wide CSS to work. If you get a chance, could you please check Forum:CSS for navboxes, and if everything looks good, copy the rules from User:Rigel Kent/wikia.css to MediaWiki:Wikia.css, and from User:Rigel Kent/monobook.css to MediaWiki:Monobook.css? Rigel Kent (talk) 18:45, October 13, 2015 (UTC)

Happy to help Edit

Color templates Edit

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't realize past edits were using the obsolete <font> tag to hack around Tidy. I'll keep working on a standard HTML fix, just in case future versions of Tidy close the <font> loophole. Rigel Kent (talk) 19:44, November 2, 2015 (UTC)

I have a bot ready to go to replace each instance of "{{Magic|Properties:...}}" with "{{Magic block|Properties:...}}". This will change 713 D3 item articles so that their lists are enclosed inside the block level Magic block template instead of the inline Magic template. Because the bot will be making so many minor edits, I'd like to request a bot flag from Wikia staff, so that the bot doesn't flood RecentChanges and blow up my edit count. Is it okay if I make that request? Rigel Kent (talk) 20:55, November 2, 2015 (UTC)
I just found out the parser freaks out a little less with lists nested inside <span>s instead of inside <b>s, so I accidentally fixed part of the problem. But I'd still like to use a bot to do a proper fix (Magic block template and <div>s) so that the color remains throughout the entire block. Rigel Kent (talk) 01:24, November 3, 2015 (UTC)
Note to staff: See also past discussion at User talk:Rigel Kent#Color templates and further discussion at User talk:Tephra#Rigel Kent's account. Rigel Kent (talk) 19:57, November 3, 2015 (UTC)

OK, now that the bot flag is sorted, I've got it running (contribs) at slow speed (1 edit per minute). Seems to be doing fine, but please block it if there are any problems. Rigel Kent (talk) 21:56, November 4, 2015 (UTC)

I think I got all of them, though I'll keep an eye out for stragglers. I also did "set block" since I noticed a minor problem with the lists inside set templates. Rigel Kent (talk) 00:53, November 6, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, looks like I'm a few months late to this.
The CSS Silver635 offered implements (among other minor changes) a web font for headers, which I think is a great idea. Helvetica and Arial are fine fonts, but fantasy topics call for something more expressive, I think. I put a Celtic small-caps on D&D4 Wiki and a cutesy sans on Eden Eternal Wiki, for example.
I doubt it'd be ethical to hotlink Exocet off battle.net, though. Especially when there are so many web fonts that are free, open source, and less dated ("The '90s called, they want that Diablo font back"). Alegreya Small Caps is my pick: a straight, wide serif like Exocet, but very readable, and with true italics. Rigel Kent (talk) 10:44, February 28, 2016 (UTC)

Re: ChangesEdit

Huh. I'm in that weird position where by all rights you 'outrank' me. How times have changed...

I kid though. Anyway, I'm happy to hold off on making changes. Would you be fine with item article creation though?--Hawki (talk) 09:21, December 20, 2015 (UTC)

Unofficial linksEdit

If the sites are not directly affiliated with Blizzard, I do not think we should provide a link to them. Even if the sites you want to link are legitimate and of high quality, it sets a precedent and opens the door for anyone else to question why external links to fansites are permitted on some pages, or why specific sites are linked to and not their preferred site (or worse yet, they don't question it and just start adding their own links). If you want to link fansites, I really think they need to be kept to a forum, blog, or user page. The current policy was decided by myself, Hawki, Breywood, and Demise101, but since you are now an admin as well, if you want to reopen it for discussion, you can start a new forum topic or something and we can review our standings on it.
◄► Tephra ◄► 21:47, December 28, 2015 (UTC)

Well the consensus we reached was that if an unofficial site is somehow directly relevant to an article, it can be linked to. This is not talking about usefulness, however (such as calculators), rather an unofficial site has become semi-official based on something important it has done that makes it notable within the context of an article (not just a link at the end). So if we had an article on a Diablo mod, linking to the mod's site would be allowed - although I'm not sure having articles for mods is appropriate for this wiki, I'm not familiar with the modding scene or, more specifically, if Blizzard supports and encourages modders. Beyond that, I really can't bend on the policy without the other admins being involved, so if you want any rules changed, you'll have to start an inclusive discussion on it - preferably a forum topic so the plebs regular editors can have their say too.
◄► Tephra ◄► 17:04, December 29, 2015 (UTC)

I beg your pardon. I'm hoping to get to all of the pages eventually but unfortunately my job makes me quite busy so the going is not as slow as I want it to be, but rest assured I will get to all of them (or all the D2 pages at least) eventually. Brainwasher5 (talk) 12:13, January 10, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! Edit

Thanks for clearing up for my mess and sorry about the weird font text. I guess that's what I get for editing in visual mode. Brainwasher5 (talk) 08:45, January 11, 2016 (UTC)

VideosEdit

That seems really excessive. Possibly sub-articles? I don't know, maybe see what Hawki thinks.
◄► Tephra ◄► 21:53, February 6, 2016 (UTC)

Concerning videos, I'm generally wary of uploading them on general principle, in that a) ideally the article itself should be able to provide a walthrough, b) it's relying on fan-generated content, while fan-made images and fanfiction are kept out of articles, and c) if the decision for a video is chosen, there's the question of which streamer to use.

Anyway, if videos are to be uploaded, splitting the article might be required. I can think of a few options:

  • Make a "Set Dungeon/Walthrough (or Walkthroughs) page where the videos can be listed. If uploading videos is the only goal, then I can live with that. A precedent exists, with articles such as Tyrael/Dialogue.
  • If walkthroughs are to be written and videos are to supplement them, then it might dictate an article split. Maybe have the Set Dungeon page still exist, but have "Set Dungeon/Barbarian," "Set Dungeon/Crusader," etc., and incorporate their dungeons into each article. Or, alternatively, have one article per dungeon. In this case, it really depends on how much can be written per dungeon.

In my personal opinion, if there's the question of walkthroughs, the first priority should be to write the walkthrough first, and, if necessary, use the videos to supplement them. The amount of data per dungeon can inform us how/if to split the article.--Hawki (talk) 08:52, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Suggested format seems fine to me.--Hawki (talk) 10:47, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Class Item categories Edit

Yeah, diffusing articles from higher-level categories into more specific subcategories is usually a good idea. Just have to make sure the subcats exist (e.g. Category:Firebird's Finery) and are categorized into the higher-level cats (e.g. Category:Diablo III Wizard Items). Rigel Kent (talk) 19:30, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Color templatesEdit

Sorry about that, was half-asleep when I first noticed it. Now that I'm awake, I see the problem occurred because MediaWiki doesn't allow a <b> nested inside another <b>, for some reason.

For now, I reverted all the <b>s to <span>s just as a quick fix. For the next step, I'll think of some way to get rid of the extra <b> (whole lines don't match the HTML5 semantics for <b>) and, while I'm at it, make it more color-blind accessible. Rigel Kent (talk) 23:49, February 26, 2016 (UTC)

Re: bleeding green
Researched the issue. Turns out putting a <span> directly next to the image link works fine in the current version of MediaWiki, but is bugged in Wikia's old version of MediaWiki (1.19). Inserting a newline between the image and the <span> fixes it (and makes the code more readable too).
How urgent is the fix? I can do a bot run to fix it right away. Or, I can start a basic infobox for D3 set items, which will move the images and fix the problem as a side effect. Rigel Kent (talk) 00:17, February 28, 2016 (UTC)

Color template reverts Edit

Hi, you recently made these reverts to templates: (Template:Legendary diff) (Template:Magic diff) (Template:Set diff).

I couldn't find any discussion, and the effect of your reverts isn't obvious from code inspection. What problems were you experiencing? Was this a wikiamobile skin issue, tidy messing with tags, ...? Rigel Kent (talk) 19:13, April 6, 2016 (UTC)

Oh, I see! I probably screwed up the cascading order, then. Back to the drawing board. Rigel Kent (talk) 04:55, April 12, 2016 (UTC)
Yep, definitely screwed up the cascading order. I'll start working on the fix, thanks for catching this bug! Rigel Kent (talk) 04:57, April 12, 2016 (UTC)

File namesEdit

Not a big issue, but when uploading images, it would be preferable if you would give them meaningful names rather than long strings of gibberish. I know that you didn't take the time to think up the random sequences, obviously that's the way you found them, but it would only take a few seconds to rename them more appropriately during the uploading process.
◄► Tephra ◄► 11:15, April 16, 2016 (UTC)

If finding them again is important enough, you can add their source links, or even original file names into the description.
◄► Tephra ◄► 20:45, April 16, 2016 (UTC)

Infobox Location2 Edit

It looks like {{Infobox Location2}} (used on 3 pages) mostly duplicates {{Infobox Location}} (used on about 80 pages). Could the pages using the Location2 template be rewritten to use Location instead? Rigel Kent (talk) 10:55, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Your changes look great. I updated the old template, {{Infobox Location}}, to match what you did. Rigel Kent (talk) 12:26, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

Re: ImagesEdit

I've seen those images be displayed as fan art elsewhere. Looking at the image files, you haven't listed the source, so I can't verify it either way, but burden of proof lies on the one uploading the image. I'd be very surprised at some of them being official images, since they're depicting demons that don't make any appearance in Diablo III.--Hawki (talk) 06:33, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

Fansite pictureEdit

Removing their link is pretty dodgy, and depending on how it was licensed, possibly a copyright infringement. I'd suggest either putting the information contained in the image into a table or making a new image from scratch that has the same information (since it is mostly text, it shouldn't be that difficult).
◄► Tephra ◄► 19:37, October 4, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Re: Couple o' Questions Edit

The only images I'll ever upload would be straight from the game, after being edited minorly if necessary ...presumably covered by fair-use. Regarding these 'Cursed Event' pictures specifically, the surrounding area is fairly important as an identifier, so I figured I'd stick with 1920x1080 screenshots, preferably with the UI hidden, and a .png file format ...if that's ok with y'all.

What few 'Cursed Event' articles you do have, most don't appear to be following a universal format ...not even betweeb each other. As such, I cleaned up the best looking one a bit, and currently plan to practically copy/paste for the rest, changing the respective pronouns and pictures obviously ...again, if that's ok with y'all.

So, just to clarify, there's no official standardization of: an article's layout, image names, singular images within an article, the customization of an image gallery, etc.? ...for a rough indication of my future work, please check out The Cursed Mill; it would be nice if we could perfect these first few so I have a template to work from when adding the rest. Otherwise, thanks for any and all input... Dsurian (talk) 17:53, January 14, 2017 (UTC)

I will be adding more content about the Anniversary Dungeon, I'd like to make something like a walkthrough, where I'll write down everything there's to know about the Labyrint in D3. Don't know yet if it will be better to do it in the Darkening of Tristram page or somewhere else. Ideas?

File names (again)Edit

Uploading images with names like Qlrsl678wzd41489442838578 or R627GSTL1NWR1478284369475 is not helpful to other editors. I would really appreciate it if you would give images proper names when uploading.

Enemy variantsEdit

I was just wondering, a lot of the variants of enemies in Diablo 3 are not listed on the wiki. Please correct me if I'm wrong about this, but is there a system like the D2 monsters lists, listing all variants of different monsters? (ie: skeleton, returned, bone warrier, etc?) Again, please correct me if i'm wrong about this whole thing. I do have the D3 game guide, which lists all the enemies near the beginning of the game's release. (ChaosChosen456 (talk) 04:03, May 4, 2017 (UTC))

Rise of the Necromancer portrait frame Edit

Unless it's a typo, the name is "Necromance Portrait", according to the blog post. — Rmkane (talk) 11:39, June 6, 2017 (UTC)

Weird... Must be a typo. You can revert it back, and then we'll see if that gets corrected. Pryamus (talk) 11:44, June 6, 2017 (UTC)

Necromancer updatingEdit

I have adjusted Template:Item by Class to accommodate the Necromancer's variants. The items will need to be named "item name (Nec).png" to work with it. Also, not every page was updated to use the template, but I decided back when the Necromancer was announced not to bother updating them until after the Necromancer's images have all been added, so that can come in time. I'll get to the other templates tomorrow.

Encountered a couple of problems with 2h Scythes. 2h Scythes reuses "Fauchard" which is already a polearm. Not particularly surprising, this isn't the first or even second item they reused a name for in Diablo III. This case is slightly more annoying however, as it will have to be separated by calling it "Fauchard (2h Scythe)" - a rather unattractive name. The second issue is less easily resolved. There are two 2h Scythes by the name of "Sharp Scythe". My respect for their creative item naming has dropped from already an dismal level to a new low. At this point, I suppose these items will need to be called "Sharp Scythe (Level 9)" and "Sharp Scythe (Level 61)" if it is even possible to do so without vomiting all over one's keyboard. My only hope is that one of them was mistakenly given the wrong name on the Diablo III Game Guide.
◄► Tephra ◄► 03:45, July 2, 2017 (UTC)

If you are already uploading normal images, which ones are you asking me to take care of? What do you mean specifically by the "missing" ones?
◄► Tephra ◄► 08:31, July 15, 2017 (UTC)

Ok. Before that, it looks like Template:Item by Class needs adjustment to allow for individual images names too unless we intentionally upload duplicates. I am not entirely sure how to pull off a "if individual name, else if alternate name, else default" in a template though...
◄► Tephra ◄► 14:28, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
I spent quite a bit of time experimenting and researching Wikimedia table parameters, and I have not been able to figure out how to set up an image hierarchy. I am not convinced it isn't possible, I am just not experienced enough to do it. I think I will have to make it individual images or default only - that means on any page where the item name doesn't match the page name, every character will need to be individually referenced in the template. I will ponder it a little bit longer, but at this point, I think that is what is going to happen.
◄► Tephra ◄► 03:58, July 16, 2017 (UTC)
What do you think should be done with outdated crafted item pages? I'm inclined to delete them, but I think you and Hawki seemed to prefer keeping old content. I will leave the outdated pages alone for now. The crafted items will all need to be updated with new pages at some point either way, but I am going to just focus on normal items for now.
◄► Tephra ◄► 16:51, July 16, 2017 (UTC)

I think I've updated all the normal item articles to use the Item by Class template. I'm not sure what, if anything, you haven't done yet. Is there something you wanted me to help with, or should I move on to the crafted items?
◄► Tephra ◄► 17:23, August 9, 2017 (UTC)

It seems some of the class-specific crafted items have been reduced to only one item of their type. Unfortunately, not all class-specific item types consist of only one item. This presents a challenge for what to include on their navigation templates. Only one item on a template is too few, but since some types still have a large number, combining them all is too many. I'm not really sure how I should proceed with sorting them. Do you have any opinions?
◄► Tephra ◄► 23:57, August 24, 2017 (UTC)
What makes you think they will increase in number? They already used to be more and were reduced to only one.
◄► Tephra ◄► 21:03, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
Well, I suppose I can go with single-item navigation templates for now, and if they look ridiculous, we can always reconsider our options.

LogosEdit

I think you did quite well. But no, I do not think there is a quick way to do it. Removing high contrast text over a faded image on a textured background is some pretty high-level image editing.

HeyEdit

Hey Pryamus, been a long time, I am currently working on a wikia that involved cross over battles with armies. I wish for your help with some lore information about the Army of Sin feats with Azmodan.--CNBA3 (talk) 16:03, January 7, 2018 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Okay, if something is not up your ally, I will work with Hawki for that, but let's look at the basics then. What I hope to look for are what would the army/faction contain as are known units, who leads them, and what are their elite/commanding units are. Their stats, how stron a unit is attack, defense or speed wise, and their abilities. What their tactics are, strengths and weaknesses.

Something like the Army of Sin already detailed the command structure, just need stats and such.

Here is an example of what the information for the army is like. http://universeconquest.wikia.com/wiki/Profile_Sample

--CNBA3 (talk) 17:54, January 7, 2018 (UTC)

That sounds interesting, I will look at that for the regiments for each sins.

As for Stats, Azmodan should be comparable to his other Evil brethren, Baal and Tyreal's battle destroyed Arreat Mountain, so he should be close to that level.

That helped a lot, thank you.--CNBA3 (talk) 23:08, January 7, 2018 (UTC)

Transmog normal itemsEdit

◄► Tephra ◄► 09:56, February 4, 2018 (UTC)

Well if they have stats, we should list them, even if they don't mean very much. Are these items still different from normal items in any way, or are they just normal items now? I am wondering how we should present them here, normal items intended for transmogging or transmog items with some useless stats.

I just want to clean up the wiki, but I cannot perform this simple task. I also left a message on Hawki's talk page as well, because he has been very active lately. Otherwise, not sure where to post this. — Thanks, Rmkane (talk) 15:08, September 20, 2018 (UTC)

My statusEdit

I'm just letting you and Hawki 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.

Unfair banlockEdit

Hello, KassraArturia here. I'd like to know the reason behind you banning my IP; 213.238.243.180. One of my last edits were The Grandfather, where user MasterTuby unnecessarily edited the word descent to "decent" which is wrong, so I only corrected it & got IP-banned for it without any reason written about it. I'd like to get unblocked this very instant as it's extremely unfairly done to me.

Thank you

Sorry I was wrongEdit

Seems decent actually was the correct spelling. I'm sorry for the trouble I caused. PS; Some other lines were automatically changed on your talk page, so change them back to their previous revision, please. Revision 179361. Line 456, 520, 531 & 553.

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 Hawki think it is a good idea.

You seemed to be interested in the Diablo Discord idea, but it doesn't appear as though you have joined it yet. Are you not actually interested? You are certainly under no obligation if you don't want to, but it is still pretty small, it would be nice to get another regular editor in there.

Ok, I didn't know that was you. I've given you the Administrator role.

By the way, it might be useful to change your name on the Diablo Discord to Pryamus so other users can know who you are (although you don't have to).

Re: Demon HunterEdit

That's the long term plan, but it'll have to be done manually.--Hawki (talk) 12:45, July 19, 2019 (UTC)

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.
