  • I'd love to give you a hand in uploading the Costume Carnival entries to the Wiki instead of just sorting them, if you are open to assistance with it. If so, what is your process for choosing which images from the guild to upload? Just those who include an image in their message, or those with an equipment description?

    It seems as though many people don't upload an avatar picture to their message, relying on people clicking their profile to see it. We could get the photos from the Party & Guild Data Tool, but that seems like a lot of work to do on a regular basis. Let me know your thoughts.

    • I choose uploaded images that give a full description of the costume, pet, background, etc. We can't try to get images from profiles because those only show the most recent avatar, which Costume Carnival enthusiasts change often. The outfit described in a chat post frequently doesn't match the current avatar. The chat moves slowly enough that I just pull images straight from the guild page. The Party tool works just as well, though.

      Right now, I've uploaded everything up to the beginning of April (I think--my wiki profile has the exact date). Anything after that, you're welcome to upload.

    • In the To Sort section, I noted the date of the most recent image, just to have that info handy for future updates.

  • Hi!

    Thanks for updating all the wiki images on the wiki. Please in future could you update the original wiki image instead of creating a new one. (see Guidance_for_Scribes#Replacing_v._Deleting). One of the reason is if there are any language wiki that are linked they don't need to be updated to manually. Avoids old outdated images etc.

    Thanks again for all your hard work!

    • I found the other images, replaced their names with the other one, and put a candidate for deletion tag on them.

  • Hi Lindsey, I was confused about the German and Fr links to "What's new 2014". The helpful links you provided appear to land in a "page not found" page. I was unable to search and find anything relevant in the German wiki, not sure if something I just missed. The English "What's new 2014" had Penguin images, so if there's a German What's New page there have been no penguin image filename edits yet.

    I edited the link to German "Eggs" page in your Sandbox page, was able to search around and find that one!

    • I'll look at that in a little bit. If you finish the penguin quests, please do not continue to the next pet. I would like to make sure everything is syncing properly and figure out why some page links are not working.

    • No problem, that's a great spot to take a break for tonight. Cheers!

  • Hi! Thanks for putting together your quest signup page. It is amazing.

    Could you add (or do you mind if I add) instructions on how to name the files correctly?

    I'm sure there was something else but it late here so I'm not quite sure what it is. When I remember for the sake of time can I add it directly? Feel free to edit it afterwards.

    Thanks

    • Go ahead and add that or anything else. In section 2, I highlighted the importance of following naming conventions. Put it anywhere in there.

    • I've got a conversation going over on my wall about a possible alternate way of doing this by renaming rather than re-uploading and then deleting old files.   Would love your input.

      Also, can you do me a favor and put the quest link in the table entries for the ones that need renaming/deleting?   I'll probably get moving on it in earnest this weekend once we settle out the best method.

    • As said on your other wall, happy for this to happen it just we need to "time it well" as the other wikis will be affected as soon as you rename.

  • Howdy Lindsey, I'm working on my 1st pet quest template edit, still little new around here. Here's my sandbox where you can see progress so far on Fowl Frost

    Main question I have regards the existing pet, mount, and egg pictures. If the existing pictures don't fit the template, should I re-upload them with a new name to fit the template? I noticed the Mount pictures for Pterror-dactyl have the same problem I'm having...thanks!

    • Can we just use the What Links Here tool to change file names on foreign language pages? Whatever we settle on--renaming or re-uploading files--I'll post a message to the Linguistic Scribes guild to let them know what's going on with the template. They may prefer to edit those pages.

      @Culverg The Advanced Wiki Editing page describes how to upload images. Hold off on that until we settle on a plan for updating both the English and non-English guilds.

    • @EverythingCounts yes but we should make the other wiki editors from those aware as they do not get this stream.

  • Hey Lindsey, I just updated What_a_Hippo-Crite to the pet quest template and have a couple of issues or suggestions:

    1. The release date isn't showing up for me. Is that because I entered a release date but not a link to the Whats New page?

    2. Would it be possible to enter one more field to permit a specific link to the promotional blog posting? I like linking directly to it, instead of to the blog generally.

    Thanks - the template is really cool! JosephK9 (talk) 15:43, February 13, 2018 (UTC)

    • I refined the code to accommodate spaces as well as hyphens. It works now. I tested it in the documentation.

  • First run using the Task template.  First, everything worked as expected and it looks stunning.  Second, the documentation is great.  I will let you know if anything else pops up.  Great work.

  • I have received a request from the guild leader of Knights of Academia.  He feels the guild is better represented under the category: Self Improvement --> Be your best self

    • They're categorized based on wiki editors' best judgment, but if a specific request is made from a guild leader, we defer to their wishes. I'll leave the edit to you.
