MapleStory world[edit]

Hey, thanks for the transwiki, but I had already "kinda" done it to MapleStory/Towns (still merging the info in). The problem was that if you look at the history of MapleStory/World it's missing everything since March 6 due to the 100 edit limit on import and export. I've been looking into finding a way to get around that limit (extracting the whole history in 100 edit pieces) but the functionality to export doesn't seem to exist (well...it's supposed to, but doesn't work). Anywayz, good to see you around again :). -- Prod (Talk) 16:49, 18 January 2007 (CST)

Ah, my mistake. Feel free to delete it then if it's note useful. Perhaps the GFDL doesn't actually require that much history recording? Or perhaps you can just list contributors outside of the 100? I don't know the legal aspects, Garret would probably be the best for that. Hopefully I'll be active in the coming weeks again. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 09:01, 19 January 2007 (CST)

"HL2" template[edit]

Is there any particular reason for this odd template? --DrBob (Talk) 14:37, 29 January 2007 (CST)

Also, could you try and remember to categorise templates in future (either in Guide-specific templates or the main template category) when creating them? --DrBob (Talk) 14:38, 29 January 2007 (CST)
Nice work on the StrategyWiki guide stuff, BTW. :-) --DrBob (Talk) 14:39, 29 January 2007 (CST)
My bad bob, just saw those as empty and went to work making useful copies from the PD source ASAP. The template is used in a few of their help pages, but there isn't really a need for it. I just added it because they had it. I may just go through and remove those with some subst'ing when I get a chance. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 17:46, 29 January 2007 (CST)
I brought back {{prettytable}} as I've seen it used on a fair number of pages, just didn't realize it was that template. -- Prod (Talk) 18:00, 29 January 2007 (CST)
Yeah, I saw that you restored it, works for me. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 18:01, 29 January 2007 (CST)

Cats[edit]

Hey, I see you don't like having the tags above the AGN :P. If you really wanna change it, you might wanna edit {{New game}} as well. Anywayz, when removing the needcat tag, be sure to add all the necessary cats. --

I changed it a little, then realized that it was the standard for new game, so I put it up for disussion in community issues. I think as long as cleanup, or stub, or the infoboxless templates are there, that is sufficient for an empty guide, along with of course the guide at completion stage 0. What other ones would you suggest? -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 18:47, 29 January 2007 (CST)
I'd say the needcat should be there until they're all added, because when new users add info to the infobox, chances are they won't add cats at the same time. -- Prod (Talk) 19:05, 29 January 2007 (CST)
Keep forgetting that monobook is the ugly skin (all the templates appear large on the page by default)... hmmmm... I don't really see that the categorization by the day of the year is really needed and the needs categorization cat would probably be better listing those guides which don't have the game categorized under system (or anything else useful). I may bring back interest in cleaning up the templates for viewing on monobook... -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 19:10, 29 January 2007 (CST)
Well, year is useful to see what new games are out/coming out. Day/month is not needed, but it usually goes along with year. Systems is very necessary, and it should include all the systems it's on. Single/multiplayer is more necessary in the infobox, cause I doubt anyone would search through those massive categories. etc... None of them are really "needed", it's just there as a reminder for us to go through and add all the cats. -- Prod (Talk) 19:21, 29 January 2007 (CST)
Yeah, just when I was writing my previous response I was referring to the large banner templates that I now remember only exist on monobook, so I'm going to cut back on cleaning some of them up for now. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 19:27, 29 January 2007 (CST)
I just realized that a very important one is genre. I'm going to bring back the needcat on most of them for now. We seem to be having some skin issues at the moment, but hopefully it will be cleared up soon. -- Prod (Talk) 23:36, 29 January 2007 (CST)
Yup, I did miss that. I'll stop messing around with things specific to one template until it's more useful :). -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 01:30, 30 January 2007 (CST)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Dungeondice Monsters[edit]

After some searching, Konami (the devels) use the space]. Strangely enough, they don't have the game under their main listing (or rather, I couldn't find it). -- Prod (Talk) 10:41, 16 February 2007 (CST)

Template: New Game error[edit]

I noticed while editing that the New Game and New Company boxes don't work as planned when the game or section has an apostrophe in it. Instead of showing a little box with "New Game", it gives a box with the long URL that doesn't even click to set up a new game. Check out article with apostrophe's to see what I mean. --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 13:39, 16 February 2007 (CST)

Fixed. -- Prod (Talk) 14:10, 16 February 2007 (CST)

Monobook issues[edit]

Hey, since I know you use Monobook, I'd like to ask if you have any ideas of what I should change and/or add to our Monobook skin. There are some glaring issues and inconsistencies with it, so I'd like to have them taken care of so that editing is seamless regardless of which skin is used. If you can, get back to me on my talk page. Thanks, Mason! echelon 01:08, 18 February 2007 (CST)

SMW[edit]

If possible, try to keep a list of the contributors in the summary when substing. -- Prod (Talk) 18:25, 21 February 2007 (CST)

I realized it was stupid to be deleting, so I'm restoring the articles I deleted and simply redirecting, so contribution attribution won't be an issue. Thougth about it a minute to late... -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 18:27, 21 February 2007 (CST)
I'll take care of the attribution stuff in that case. -- Prod (Talk) 18:30, 21 February 2007 (CST)
Feel free, although if they are redirects, all edits are still existant here, so it isn't required to go to any other lengths, but do as you wish :). -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 18:32, 21 February 2007 (CST)
One major problem with the redirections is that you can't redirect to the correct "#section" of the page :( Procyon 18:49, 21 February 2007 (CST)
Section redirections work in 1.9, once we've got that, so putting them in there will work later. GarrettTalk 19:27, 21 February 2007 (CST)
Well once we have that I'll go through all the pages and replace it with code that will substitute in the name of the enemy into the redirect link to go to the correct section. Since it'll be easier when we have the {{SUBPAGENAME}} code. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 23:19, 21 February 2007 (CST)
I've got a list of all the contributors now, I'm going to see about adding it as a comment to an edit (though there are 52 editors....maybe multiple edits). As for section links, I think it is possible. -- Prod (Talk) 19:00, 21 February 2007 (CST)
Well, I've got all the usernames into the edit histories (OK, it's fairly messy >.> but got some cleanup done at the same time). I'm going to go through the pages and fix all the links to avoid the redirects now. -- Prod (Talk) 19:32, 21 February 2007 (CST)

Signature[edit]

Thanks for the note, I was having trouble yesterday so the external link was my workaround, it all works fine today though. Rocky Rally-X Rock.png (talk) 10:07, 22 February 2007 (CST)

Watchlist[edit]

I put that comment in some time ago, I have already got the add to watchilst if I create checked so I'm ok now--Rocky Rally-X Rock.png (Talk Contributions ) 15:12, 26 February 2007 (CST)

MapleStory Bosses[edit]

Thanks for the fix :D. Have you become a MapleStory fan? :P -- Prod (Talk) 12:22, 27 February 2007 (CST)

I played it last year, but my interest fell during the level grind, I believe I was around lvl 17 or 18. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 13:56, 27 February 2007 (CST)

Cleanup project members[edit]

As part of our ongoing cleanup project, we are transitioning to a category based membership scheme for the StrategyWiki:Cleanup project. The member listing at the bottom of the page has been removed so if you would like to rejoin the project, please add Category:Cleanup project members to your user page. -- Prod (Talk) 13:05, 12 October 2007 (CDT)
