(deleted previous current issue, because it's nothing we can fix, to make room for a new one) Un Registered users making new pages.

How do we fix template problems:

  • THIS VERY PAGE has a large open box on the top right - totally unnecessary, and causing good material to be further down.
  • The "craftable items" page has this same height of blankness ACROSS THE ENTIRE PAGE.
    • What is that open area for, and how do we change the template being used? (I'm just a regular, tho active, editor, not an admin)

I know other admin's can see how often I delete the pages, and while I have no issues doing so, I don't believe we need the ability for unregistered users to make new pages. Can we restrict the wiki so only people who've created accounts can create a new page, other than the many many ip address I've started blocking each time they create a new page? (maybe make a rank, people can request (and I or higher admins approve) of people who can make new pages?) Camberme (talk) 06:31, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Math Calculation error[edit source]

While editing some of the common ore weights I've noticed if I type .125 the weight is 1000 off, so to weight a bar you have to type 1000 when the stone weight is only 1 Camberme (talk) 01:03, 7 October 2014 (UTC) (to much work to go through each weight to change calculation.)

Category issue?[edit source]

The forging category for Forging devices is named Forging, instead of Category:Forging devices like the other device categories (Category:Cooking devices) I don't want to create another Category page and cause confusion. Camberme (talk) 02:32, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

  • I have created (some) categories related to the skill, for example that Category:Forging, but I havent updated everything yet. So any forging device should be in Category:Devices (any crafting station being considered a device) , Category:Forging (any information related to forging) and probably Category:Forging devices (any device that is used for forging) . But then again, I'm just a random person, so I'm just presenting my view :)
    Edit: I have noticed that you're actually using the term Forging devices - I guess feel free to create the redirect and/or the category, but I would like to keep Category:Forging for general stuff related to forging, do you think it's okay? Zennie01 (talk) 12:42, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
    • The other skills (like cooking) use Category:cooking devices to list the things that cooking can be done on, since different level of things can be done on different buildings. like for forging, a Sword can be made in a Forge and Anvil, but also in a Black smith shop. so listing one is "not helpful" I'm just thinking the wiki should be normalized ya know? I like the redirect idea though if the Category:Forging can't be changed. or maybe just a sub category needs to be added? Devices/Tools/weapons/armor/misc.
      • Um no I think I didn't express myself clearly, sorry. I will try other example, smelting. Category:Smelting devices is a technical category needed to fill Item template properly for miscellaneous metal stuff like ingots and whatnot. However, you cannot put Crucible and tongs into that category, because you actually need furnace/bloomery. But Crucible and tongs, apart from the fact that it is Category:Tools, is also related to Smelting. So my idea is to create additional - logical - category Category:Skillname and put all related stuff there. Zennie01 (talk) 18:57, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
    • edit, Seems like theres a bigger underlying issue then, the categories for cooking devices might just be in the wrong place since there is one for devices as a whole, maybe it should just have sub categories? So everything would be Category:Devices Sub category Forgeing/smelting/cooking/woodworking/whatever?Camberme (talk) 16:39, 7 October 2014 (UTC)


Today 12/17 (9:30 am) I've decided to work on Categories. Expect alot of changes, please wait until mid day to discuss any changes, I should remember to post here when I am "done" or taking a break. I will be using two google docs to document progress if you want to watch, [visual tree] and [text documentation] Camberme (talk) 17:30, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

  • on hold family issue, will be back at it shortly (first edit didn't do what I wanted so I need to re think what I'm doing anyways) Camberme (talk) 18:11, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Table of Contents confusion, using headers[edit source]

I'm creating / copying the interactive faq from the main forums, to here, just for quicker reference. I would like to Table of Contents to be able to hide the different numbers in it (the headings I am using to break up the questions. (1-10. 11-20 and the like) I don't know how to hide those headings inside the ToC though? Camberme (talk) 20:09, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

  • How does that look with the hidden ToC at least? Thebigschnoz (talk) 15:48, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Now you can hide the whole ToC which is nice, but I was thinking if you wanted to hide sections of the toc, like what you've already read, but that doesn't really matter :)Camberme (talk) 17:44, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
