Hi Elnestor, I messed up on creating a new page..an item was linked as Battlebringer Pants in the Sparkling Festive Present article but it's actually Battlebringer Legs. Can you correctly rename the page? http://eldevin.wikia.com/wiki/Battlebringer_Pants
Sorry for always bothering you Elnestor, you're the best person I can ask questions regarding the Wikia. I've been looking at this http://eldevin.wikia.com/wiki/Eldevin_Wiki:Community_Portal/Samples but it doesn't answer my question. For items in the articles, are they ordered alphabetically? For example, in the Bullasaurs article, should it be Baguette, Equipment, Flawed gems, Fusion Powder, Jagged gems, etc? I'm just wondering since I've been looking through articles while playing.
I'm wondering what should the name be for this creature in a quest. It's the lvl 34 quest, Librarian Transformed. I edited the name to "Book Wyrm" (http://eldevin.wikia.com/wiki/Librarian_Transformed) because I had just finished the quest and the creature's name is "Book Wyrm" and not "Giant Book Wyrm". However, after looking through my screenshots to add a picture of it on a new page (http://eldevin.wikia.com/wiki/Book_Wyrm), I noticed that the ingame quest book calls it "Giant Book Wyrm".
I just uploaded a duplicate of a previous pic cuz the name of the pic is written without spaces, thus not showing up in search. We should always upload the pics with spaces if the canon material has any, instead of stripping them by ourselves.
Only reason that I see this being done is because it was started and made to be the template by someone which was followed through by everyone else.
I don't understand it and was hoping it would change.
"Ideally both File name and Page name should match and helps a great deal for both editor and user."
"It's a standard here not to use spaces in filenames, end of. Ideally no punctuation either. Having this strict standard is good to avoid uploading duplicates, it's completely clear what the filename should be."
Clearly it isn't clear and the standard needs to change :/
Elnestor has a point that we can't perform automatic complete renaming, but we can perform partial automatic renaming and do more when possible. This currently used standard is one of the dumbest standards regardless of who made it.
It's not that hard, as I've seen Admins use bots that run either Python or some other language with RegEx (or scripts without an actual bot), and the bot (or script) writes an edit description like §Automatic file renaming§.
The 'SkinningKnife' is a good example of partial renaming: it's impossible for 'Skinning' to continue with any characters, so a RegEx like (assuming you can't do it case-insensitively) §[Ss]kinning *§ will match §Skinning§, §skinning§, §Skinning §, §skinning § with any number of spaces, and it'd be replaced by §Skinning§.
That has to be run specifically on photos, not all articles or article contents, we'll get totally unwanted results.
But 'SkinningKnife' is just an example, as I'm sure there's no other photos or items in the game that contain 'Skinning' in any form.
It would still require a user request and personally it would take longer to oversee/proofread and create a bot than it would to do it manually at this stage, especially with this many images (which isn't that many).
I will easily be able to do at least 300 a day. The image names a readily available, the images are already uploaded, nothing more needs to be done other than renaming which in this case is literally a space or two.
It may seem a lot, but it really isn't once you get into a rythm and you are focused on the end goal.
It is one of the reasons why I am the current #1 ingame for achievements ;P
Hey Elnestor, I just wanted to let you know that my computer won't take screenshots when I'm hovering my mouse over an item..I've tried different programs so I'll do what I can to help edit the Wikia but until I can figure out what's going on, it'll just be text. :(
When posting a new item it changed part of the pictures code into a link guess I needed a space for some reason didn't expect something like that to be a problem...... Anyway can you edit the page to fix it it will not let me do anything to it anymore for some reason just says the editor is loading on only that page. >.>
