  • I remember seeing you posted a wishingmachine.zip file for the "wishing room" moon gate but the link to the Elona forum is dead. Do you still have the zip?

    • Unlikely, sorry! I've had two PCs die on me since then. I'll check my backups and update this if I find it, but your best bet would be to post a request on the forum.

  • Hey SiamJai! I'm Technobliterator, and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Elona Wiki. I'm here to help your community, and I'm a liaison to full-time Fandom Staff. If you have any questions relating to the wiki, whether it's code-related, policy related, or otherwise, I'm your first point of contact.

    I notice you're the most recently active admin here, though you haven't edited a lot lately-- but I figured I'd reach out to you either way to let you know I'm around in case you do return to activity. Feel free to let me know if you need anything! I'll check your RecentChanges every so often, but for the quickest replies, drop me a message on my talk page here!

    • Hi Technobliterator, and welcome to Elona Wiki! Thanks for joining us - the wiki can always use another experienced coder, and I'm sure our community will benefit from a direct line to the Fandom staff.

      As you have probably noticed, this is a user-driven wiki, I'm mostly a maintenance-type admin. We have awesome members that bring official game updates, develop mods and expand wiki functionality to fit Elona better.

      With that said, I do keep an eye on Fandom features and official development affecting the wiki, and keep the wiki updated accordingly. I do have some questions regarding some of these (especially the now defunct map function), but I'll bother you with that later on your talk page, to keep this one tidy. :)

      I check the wiki daily - in fact it's the browser's homepage - so feel free to get in touch as well.

    • Hey, thank you for getting back to me. I'll be able to help either with coding for you myself or just to help teaching you how to do it yourself!

      I did indeed notice that from checking your contributions (which are really solid btw - maintenance is important, it sucks that it gets neglected on lots of wikis!).

      Feel free to bother me with any questions you may have! It's a little unfortunate that the Maps feature went the way it did, I thought that it did show a lot of potential.

  • Since Elona+ v1.83 brought about the dungeon change, I'd like to make seperate pages for the types of dungeons.  I believe the dungeon types are different enough to warrant their own pages, anyway.  Each page would include a sprite of the dungeon, the kind of material harvest that is more likely to be found, links to the races of monster inside each type, and what one can find from digging the walls of the dungeon.  I would also like to make a personal project of adding a location subheading to each monster npc page.  Before I undertake this project, I'd like your thoughts, if maybe it's not worthwhile.

      Loading editor
    • Info on the new dungeon types could definitely be made more accessible, as it's something that would probably be referenced more often. From the way you describe it, looks like it's gonna be great!

      As for individual pages for each type, that would make the info easily findable through Search, but less easily comparable. OTOH, if they'd be listed on a single "Dungeon Types" page, they'd be easier to compare, but would be less likely to turn up on a specific search. :) Each way has its pros and cons, so it depends only on how you'd like to start out.

      Location subheadings would also be a useful thing to have imo. One thing that we tend to be more careful about nowadays is the separation of variant-specific info on a vanilla page, or at least a clear indication that it's a feature of E+/omake/etc.

      Also, probably you know this already, but here is a tip before doing many small edits in bulk: there is a "mark all edits as minor by default" in Preferences, which will make it easier for others to filter out edits of that nature in Recent Changes.

      It's great to see fresh ideas on improving the wiki, and thanks for asking my thoughts on it. Glad to give my opinion as another editor. Best luck and have fun! :)

  • Hi SiamJai,

    Do you know if there are any issues affecting the creation of new threads in the General Discussion Board? I've been trying for a while here, and it just gives me this error:

    Article Undefined was not found
    
    What do you want to do?
    
        Search existing articles for Undefined
        Create article Undefined

    Thanks for any info you can provide.

    • Hi Bloodyshade,

      Thanks for bringing it up! Just as a quick test, I created a new topic (now deleted) on that board, and it worked fine. Could you please describe step by step how you went about making the new topic?

      I will look into the issue, probably after the holidays if it's more complicated.

        Loading editor
    • I was able to create one now as well, so it appears to have been some temporary issue, thanks for checking it out!

    • Must've been a server-side problem then. Glad to hear that it works again!

  • I have Noa's source code and was thinking about adding some of the more technical details to the wiki.  What's your suggestion for pathing pages for technical info?  Or just include on the relevant page?

    For example, if I were to put how shop/arena/etc rank work (they're all based on similar function) should it be on their relevant pages or on a technical page with a different title?

      Loading editor
    • Either way works. As a rule of thumb, extensive technical info is best published as a full article, a subpage branching off the main namespace (e.g. Food/Technical), while brief technical info usually goes into the main article, either as a one-liner or as a relevant sub-section.

      In my opinion, info that is relevant to different pages would probably be best written as its own article, say, "Ranking mechanics", in the Technical information category, and then linked from all relevant pages (e.g. Shop rank and Arena rank).

      Welcome to the wiki, and thanks for sharing your expertise!

  • a lot of the names of omake overhaul's classes collide with names of NPCs

    I don't really want to rename all those pages, since it would affect whenever they get linked from other pages (i.e., npc class entries), though I can add a "for the npc.." bit at the top

    but on the other hand using claymore_(class) seems a bit inconsistent with existing classes/naming? 

    any suggestions?

      Loading editor
    • I see what you mean. Usually the NPC gets the suffix when there is naming conflict with a class/race. However, until now this happened only within vanilla or the same variant, afaik.

      If we followed this now, it would create confusion, since a default namespace would be occupied by variant content, with vanilla content moved to a suffixed name. This would go against the guiding principle that vanilla content is treated as default, with variant content listed as additional matter.

      With that in mind, I would recommend keeping the default names for vanilla content (NPCs in this case), and the suffix for the variant content, whether it is class, race or anything else.

      But this is not an "admin" opinion, just that of another editor. I think this topic would be best discussed on the forum - let's see what others think.

  • http://elona.wikia.com/wiki/Category:NPCs_by_Bitflag

    This category does not show subcategories, as having any kind of population. It also does not show up in the parser when adding categories to pages. This is odd, also, on some pages it is impossible to add things to categories at least for me. For example on the Electric Cloud and Chaos Cloud pages I can't add them to cResFear tag or the cFloat either.

    I'm working on these categories because finding NPCs by bitflag is a very useful thing to do if making pet teams. It also removes the disparity between wiki pages that includes lines about a bitflag, but due to their wording, does not show in the same search results, i.e; "It self-inflicts Fury" would show on pages with cTemper bitflag, and in another page, "it has the cTemper bit", would give results, but it means you would need to do multiple different searches for the same thing.

    • Just checked that category, and I see 21 subcategories listed, with the number of pages shown next to each subcategory. In other words, nothing out of the ordinary. Do you see it void of subcategories? Or do you mean it doesn't show a mixture of individual items and subcategories, like it shows in, say, the Items category? For individual pages to show up in a category, they have to be directly in that category afaik. Also, sometimes it takes a while for the server to update certain changes (e.g. after I deleted the three "marked for deletion" pages, they still showed up on the list for a while).

      Regarding the parser not listing categories, I'm curious about the type of editor you use (visual/rich-text/source). Editing the Chaos cloud page in source editor mode, I typed "[[Category:Cr" and it listed all the cRes category options.

      Thanks for the useful contributions; I think the new categories make these pages more easily accessible. Hopefully we can figure out the solutions to these issues as well.


      p.s. it's also helpful to mark category additions as minor edits, both because they don't cause substantial changes to the articles, and also because this makes it easier for users to filter their Recent Changes feed. :)

        Loading editor
    • I use the categories tab at the bottom of the page to add categories which doesn't enable me to make it a minor edit. Also the Chaos cloud page wouldn't save the categories themselves, nor do some of the others. For me, specifically, another user could change those pages.

      Edit; nevermind this is resolved using the edit button instead.

        Loading editor
    • Glad to see it worked out! Not sure why the tab behaves that way though.

      For minor edits, you can set your Preferences, under the Editing tab, to make edits "minor" by default. Useful when doing a bunch of minor edits at the same time - just need to remember to switch it back afterwards. :)
