Walkthrough Vs Guide[]

Is there a need to differentiate, or have different pages for a walkthrough of an area vs the information about the area? --Berael 00:18, 26 April 2007 (CEST)

I bet you are hinting at the subway page, for example. Personally I do see AO Wiki as a reference. This means I want some general info about areas/dungeons, the various mobs/bosses, their loot and so on. I don't want to know what's around the next corner to the left if I followed some selected 'walkthrough' path for example.
These things can be put into an article on it's own, if they are requested/required/wanted.
Btw, quests result by default in walkthroughs as reference information, for example. -- Yllkoda 12:08, 26 April 2007 (CEST)

Well, i'm also looking at the subway page in relation to my own walkthrough that I did for the ICC Shuttleport and the one i'm working on for the Nascense Training Grounds --Berael 15:09, 26 April 2007 (CEST)

Hmm, my categorizing was wrong, or at least partly. If you read one of your articles and then the old subway one you will see the differences. The worst part was, at least to me, the silently assumed context in all the explanations; furthermore it contained a lot of IMO superfluous information. In the end it's probably just a certain way of writing the things. -- Yllkoda 09:21, 1 May 2007 (CEST)

Batch uploading[]

Is it possible? Is there a mechanism, or if not can we send them to you to put in the backend? Omnilynx 23:07, 7 August 2006 (CEST)

RSS feed --Mummu 21:31, 27 SEP 2005 (CEST)
Just tried out the RSS feed out of boredom. Nice idea, BUT to make it perfect you 'll need to filter out the mediaWiki updates. 50 changed articles, but all about the update :)

RE:RSS feed -- Angels 13:43, 1 March 2006 (CET):
When i find free time i will check if it is somehow possible to remove mediawiki updates from the rss feeds. Thanks for pointing it out :)

images Mummu 15:59, 18 Aug 2005 (CEST)
would it be possible to share the image database of the german and english side? pictures that are uploaded on the english site can be used on the german and vice versa?

RE: images --Angels 12:15, 24 Aug 2005 (CEST)
I am not sure if it will be possible to use images from one upload pool. I will check the mediawiki documentation and have a talk with the mediawiki coders. Maybe there is a solution.
RE: images --Cirte 19:32, 21 Aug 2005 (CEST)
Yes we can share them, but what Mummu means is, that Images shoud share the same "space".
Atm we neet to upload them twice.
RE: images Landcast 18:05, 21 Aug 2005 (CEST)
If im not mistaken someone from the german wiki once said that we could share both info and pictures. Ill look into it.

uploading jpg' Mummu 13:13, 13 Aug 2005 (CEST)
I have still trouble uploading screenshots, sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt, most times it doesnt. No matter how I name them. Is there some bug with with the wikisystem?

RE: uploading jpg' Angels 14:21, 14 Aug 2005 (CEST)
Uploading of images should work again. A wrong set written permission (maybe) caused the failure and the errormessage while uploading.
RE: uploading jpg' Angels 14:21, 14 Aug 2005 (CEST)
I am trying to figure out what causes the upload failure. May take a while :)

Item-Icons Mummu 13:12, 02 Aug 2005 (CEST)
seems like {{AODB|number}} aint working on the english part curretnly, still doing it perfectly fine on the german one.

sure they work as far as i can see --Cirte 14:04, 2 Aug 2005 (CEST)
but you must use the "real Icon ID" not the link ID.

this is the big difference between {{AODB|number}} and [[Image:number.png]]

hmm Mummu 18:12, 02 Aug 2005 (CEST)
weird, I mainly used the same layout syntax commandos as in the german original, it worked in german but not in english. But right now it looks ok, but with other commands, wich I didnt use, and without any entry in the history. either something is realy weird here, or the icon are not stored on this server and the companys blacklist screwed the links up.
doh' Mummu 13:12, 04 Aug 2005 (CEST)
nevermind me, found the fault, totally on my side, wrong browser settings (load pics only from original site) narf.

Uploading image Basemetal 15:39, 10 Jul 2005 (CEST)

For some reason uploading did work after changing file name to Fixergrid.JPG instead of fixergrid.jpg .
I have the same problem after submitting multiple files, some of them are rejected just like explained below. So I changed file
extensions to all caps and it worked for all files but one. For the last file it worked when I removed the underscore "_" from filename (all other pictures had underscores as well...). Maybe it's something with mass uploading? Gryf 16:35, 11 Jul 2005 (CEST)

Mainpage redesign & Categories --Angels 19:20, 22 Jun 2005 (CEST)
If somebody of you add a new category, please edit the category page itself, so it it contains some introduction text. Otherwise the linking to that category will end in an empty "edit" page. You can always look at existing Categories HERE. In the next days i will redesign the layout on the mainpage (move stuff to second levels, etc). Comments of how to improve the Mainpage are welcome.

Removing Registration --Habitue 23:34, 20 Jun 2005 (CEST)
How about removing the need to register in order to edit content? I know the registration is in place to prevent vandalism, but I think a lot of people are sort of scared off by the need to register, even if it is free. In addition, there are a lot of people (myself included) that look at the recent changes regularly, and any vandalism would be noticed and corrected fairly quickly. I think one of the things that makes wikipedia so popular is the low barrier to entry. Sure there are going to be a few jerks, but I think there are far more people interested in making the wiki better. People who just delete things for the heck of it or just vandalize everything grow tired of that fairly quickly and move on.

RE: Removing Registration --Angels 01:24, 21 Jun 2005 (CEST)
I removed the need to register/login to edit. Have Fun :)

Layout? - Angels 11:01, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
How shall the main page be improved? Shall i add some nice graphics to the category headers? :) Just let me know what you like/dislike. Thanks alot

Symbols? --Baffle 11:45, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
Personally I like a clean and simple layout. Some images could ofcourse make the main page a little more fancy. What about some kind of logo or "banner" on the top? Making something for the category headers would be nice. What about adding some small symbols for each category? If you make images with text (the category title) it would make it quite unflexible when it comes to changing the structure if that is needed in the future... so I vote for some symbols.. and maybe some logo/banner on the top og the page. :-)
Layout? - Angels 12:39, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
Sounds nice. If i find time i will work on some icons.
Layout? - Landcast 15:05, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
I think we should reform the menu on the main page to be more organised. There is much off the content that can be put in subpages. Graphic banners isnt something that is needed before we are sure that the layout/headers stayes the way they are.
Item links and images - Baffle 15:25, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
Should we follow any standards when it comes to item links and image links? We have two sites to choose between when it comes to items. and Would it be possible to make some kind of link template for this? Just as an example : make every item link be passed to aoid.php with id=item id as parameter. aoid.php can then generate links to both auno and aodb and possible future item db's. And best of all, if any of the sites die out you can only change a few lines in the aoid.php file. It can also be easy for a user to choose what site they want to be auto redirected to. Im not sure how that would be for images. What do you think?
Styleguide & Comments - Angels 18:34, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
I will translate the Styleguide asap (maybe tomorrrow) so that you have an overview what extensions the wiki has. I also would love if everbody who uses the comment function to post his comment on the TOP of the comment page... so its easier to read i guess.
auno - Landcast 17:44, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
I think there also is one for auno links. doh not sure about that either.. We need to start to make they style guide :O
Image links - Baffle 16:25, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
I see now that {{AODB|number}} is the correct way to link images. :-)
Yes - Landcast 15:49, 9 Jun 2005 (CEST)
I think that angles has made something like this for the german wiki but hasnt had time to do it for the english one yet.

Put the perks where?[]

Where would it be relevant to create a generic perks section? I'm trying to figure out what to put under the MP profession entry, and MP specific perks do, those shared with other professions do too. Generic perks (and perks in general) though should have their own section to link to somewhere. - Malusz

I'm thinking we should have a separate section for the general perks. I've finished all the Soldier SL Prof/Group Perks and working on the AI ones, but the generals are, obviously, general, and probably shouldn't go under profession perks. --Vinyaya 04:07, 27 January 2007 (CET)

Wrong case on file extension[]

File User_malusz.JPG (upper case on extension) can be removed. It's not used anywhere, just a typo.

Content added[]

I have added Neutrals And Where_can_I_buy_SL_Nanos ... The second one isnt finished but i will be adding more info when i have time
