Welcome to EQ2i

Hello and welcome to EQ2i! Thank you for your contributions, especially your recent edits to the A Stronger Essence page. We hope you decide to stay. Please edit to your heart's content and don't worry overmuch about using templates or "getting it right." If you're unsure of how to use any of our templates at the site, don't panic! Just start a new article and place {{wikify}} at the top of the page. Another editor will take care of the rest. Here is some general information you might find useful:

And here are some very basic editing tips:

  • If you need something deleted, place {{delete|the reason here}} on the top of the page.
  • If you see something where you know the name is not right, use the "move" link to change the name of the page.
  • If you find a page name that you are unsure if it has the correct name, place {{CapCheck|suggested correct spelling}} on the top of the page.
  • For information that you would like others to verify in-game use {{FactCheck|what you need checked}}.
  • And if all else fails and you're just not sure what to do, place {{Admin Needed|the reason here}} on the top of the page. There is also the "Report Problems" link that should appear on all pages; it is a help-ticket system that all wikia.com wikis are using.

If you need any additional help, just drop by my talk page or any of the admin's talk pages. We'd be glad to help.

uploaded pictures[edit source]

Sometimes it can take some time till a picture updates, if you are sure that you uploaded the right picture then just way a little .. (up to 24 hours in a rare worst case) .. till the updated picture shows up. I didn't remove the File:Icon Achievement Woodworker 10.png since it looks okish now.

Hi there!
So you can see the uploaded picture now? Strange, it still doesn't show up for me. Neither on the article that uses it, on its own page, or on the category page for the achievement icons. All I get is an empty square where the picture is supposed to be. I've tried a full page refresh (Ctrl+F5), putting eq2.wikia.com on my internet security program's banner whitelist, and even logging out, deleting all cookies for eq2.wikia.com, then logging back in - still nothing. All other icons show up just fine for me... maybe it's a browser issue of some sort. Anyway, if you can see it, I'll leave it at that for now, unless you've got a suggestion about what the issue could be. Thanks for your reply anyway! -- Ailar 17:30, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
Try adding ?action=purge (or, if there's already a ? in the URL, &action=purge) to the end of the URL when looking at the image. That can force it to rebuild the cached image, although sometimes you will still have to wait for it to show up properly. It's due to the way wikia caches images to reduce server load. --lordebon 18:57, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
Don't worry updated images are mostly a server side cache thing, as Lordebon said.
The adress in your browser will look like http://eq2.wikia.com/wiki/File:Icon_Achievement_Woodworker_10.png?action=purge then. -- User:Chillispike  User_talk:Chillispike 19:04, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
