To Do List Comments[edit source]

Skin[edit source]

Lighter skin for people, why not just make this main skin the only skin? It honestly seems quite lite and smooth to me, I would say it's one of the more better and cleaner skins I've ever used. Maybe update to the new Monobook skin and modify it's schema to match this skin for colouring at least... I do like it :) Maygus 22:10, 11 January 2011 (CST)

Well this one is based off of Vector anyway. Most people never change the skin, but since I'd had a few ask for a light one I thought it made sense eventually...but it's not at the top of my list. ;) --Ciovala Talk 02:42, 12 January 2011 (CST)

Item Pages[edit source]

As for Item Pages etc. and a way to link, have a look at User:Maygus/Sandbox it won't work properly until you put User:Maygus/common.css into the global CSS list and I'm pretty sure there's nothing else using those CSS variables. From there I'll find the .js code to have pop-ups like wowwiki/wowpedia have. Works a treat :) Maygus 22:10, 11 January 2011 (CST)

I think I copied that information into the Mediawiki:Common.css yesterday. Did it not work? --Ciovala Talk 02:42, 12 January 2011 (CST)
OH! It did! :) Thanks I didn't notice your edit. :P Maygus 09:49, 14 January 2011 (CST)

Update Property:Faction[edit source]

"Unaffiliated" should be added to as a Property:Faction value, as there are many NPCs who interact with both Guardian and Defiant players. Twerp 00:10, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm finding this property a bit confusing, as it's unclear as to what are specifically considered "factions". For example, is Quartermaster Uzan's faction supposed to be "Unaffiliated" as he's accessible to both Defiant and Guardians, or should his faction be listed as the faction for whom he's the Quartermaster (Arcane Hand) which case, there's a TON of factions that need to be added to the "faction" property?

I'm guessing that it would be something like what it is listed now where there is no "faction" listed since he is not technically affiliated with a particular faction. I would think that the Property:faction tag would be more useful for a creature or mob that is clearly of one side over another. Or at least has a Subheading under their name on their nameplate in game.CobaltLion 01:11, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Well, like I said it's a matter of the term "faction" being ambiguous. It seems that what you're talking about is essentially a "Friendly/Hostile/Neutral" type of flag, as opposed to actual affiliation with an in-game faction. Really (though I've been using it) I don't like the term "unaffiliated" as it's not technically accurate (many NPCs that are friendly to both parties technically have factions, like Quartermaster Uzan above). -Alerik talk 01:41, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

News Section[edit source]

For the "Rift: Planes of Telara News" section of the news, are we simply wanting the same news items that are posted at The Offical site? If so, I may take a crack at helping to keep it updated. User:Alerik/sig 15:32, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps Trion would allow for their posts to be copied over here? I'm not sure how that works with the GNU rules. Let me know what you think?CobaltLion 01:11, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
That's more or less what I mean, just probably reworded a bit so as not to be a direct copy/paste. I just wasn't sure what was meant by "our news section" in the help request. I don't mind helping out with the Rift news items, but I don't feel qualified to be creating news articles for Telarapedia news (that seems more like site admin territory). -Alerik talk 01:41, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
It's editable for a reason ;) Have a go at it I'd say, once its confirmed that Trion has no copyrights etc. on the text --Roobarb 01:45, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Not sure about the copyright stuff, but I did notice that Trion apparently has a news RSS feed. Maybe there's a way to have the news auto-propagate using that? -Alerik talk 02:01, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Copy/paste is fine as long as it's attributed to the official site. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 13:25, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I went ahead and did today's new news article. Let me know what you think. -Alerik talk 23:48, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
I'll keep an eye out on this too. Be out of town with no internet for a week but when I'm back I will make sure to help keep up on this.CobaltLion 01:16, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
