Not sure if this is a big issue, or if it can be fixed but I've noticed some item stats display in different orders in-game than they do when the are shown on the Wikia. The only one I know of right now is that Multi Attack Chance (multi) shows up above Spell Weapon Multi Attack Chance (swmulti) on an item in the game, but the Wikia shows swmulti above multi. On the Template:EquipInformation, the swmulti stat is right above the multi stat. Is that why?

Admin Emeritus: I check in here and there but unfortunately don't have the time to be here day-to-day.
If you'd like my input or need urgent admin assistance (e.g., spam issue, etc.) please leave a message on my talk page. I can't guarantee I'll see comments on things left elsewhere.

In your house zone

Sorry if I messed something up from those "In your house..." quest things I posted and you deleted. I got to a quest page and it had some wikia notes asking to copy the link text and paste it to the redlink listed underneath it. Wasn't sure what it was for, but it looked like it needed to be done so I did it.Vagar (talk) 16:08, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. The issue was with whoever listed the zone as "In your house," not with your following the category directions and making them. In general, we only list actual individual zones for those (otherwise the categories break) and since "In your house" isn't an actual zone name I cleaned them up a bit. You were right in adding the categories, if it was a normal zone they would definitely be needed. It's only since the listed zone was wrong that I went and deleted the categories. --lordebon (talk) 16:20, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

Farming Guide

Thanks for all the help so far. I should have joined EQ2Wiki much sooner, but am lazy when it comes to things like this. Can you copy my plat farming guide on my profile page and paste it into a guide for all players to see? I would like to make my guide available to the masses to both aid them and to be recognized as the plat farming champ that I am. I'm not afraid of them farming too much plat with these tips because most won't have the discipline and/or time to stick with it like I do. —Preceding unsigned comment added by PlatMaster (talkcontribs) 09:36, February 15, 2013‎ (UTC)

Sure. I'll move it over to a subpage and get it added to the user guides category where folks will be able to find it. --lordebon (talk) 15:18, February 15, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for all of the help so far. I started a blog about Wurmbone End and the need for SOE to do smart loot for the COE solo zones. I can't get the editing to do right on it though. Can you take a look at it and fix the editing for me please?
I also started a guide to custom appearance gear sets. I will be adding to that in the future as I figure out how best to take screenshots of my toons wearing the gear, and screenshots of the examine windows of the gear. It is my intention to post a screenshot of my toon wearing the whole set that I put together from mob drops, faction gear, quest rewards, & broker searches into cool looking matching sets. I also want to post screenshots of the gear in the examine window, and how I obtained the gear. I'll welcome any tips you have for this ambitious guide! —Preceding unsigned comment added by PlatMaster (talkcontribs) 08:09, February 18, 2013 (UTC)
I'll take a look at the blog. They're a new feature for us here at EQ2i, the formatting might be a bit different compared to a standard article. The guide sounds good (I moved it to your userspace as well, it's the proper place for personalized guides). My suggestion would be to try to use any existing screenshots of full sets that we might have (if it's just a full armor set), if it's a unique mix like it sounds they will be I'd just try to model the images after those we have for the armor sets (try to keep them all the same size so it looks consistent). For the examines, I suggest reusing examines we already have again (to avoid duplication) and maybe consider using Template:HideDiv and put the examines in little collapsible sections to keep your guide more compact. Then people can expand the examines / obtain info for sets they like without it being visible and taking up space for all of them. --lordebon (talk) 15:00, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

Adding Pictures

I've been trying to add pictures to some of the mounts and I'm having troubles. When I use the Upload Photo button on the page it seems to want to automatically add it as an "in-game examine window" picture when I really want it to be a "(Equipped)" picture using the "iname2" field. What am I doing wrong so it won't do this? You can see an example at the Dark Harbinger's Flight Wings page. Thanks! Vagar (talk) 13:13, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

The problem is in the naming of your uploads. By default on EQ2i, images with an exact name match (eg., File:Dark Harbinger's Flight Wings.png) are intended to be the examine window and will automatically be displayed as such if they exist. To upload a visible/equipped image, made the name something like File:Dark Harbinger's Flight Wings (Equipped).png and plug that into iname2. The template won't try to use it as the examine window image then. --lordebon (talk) 13:23, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
Of course! That's makes total sense. Is there a way I can go back and rename the other pics? I tried to do that but didn't see it anywhere. I messed up Majestic_Pridewing.png and Dark Harbinger's Flight Wings.png. Vagar (talk) 16:53, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately file moves require an admin or a rollback user, since moving files can cause a bit more of a vandalism or accident risk. You can request images to be moved using by adding {{Rename|newname|reason}} to the image's page and it'll get categorized for us to move. In the meantime I've moved the images for those two so they should be good now. --lordebon (talk) 17:06, March 23, 2013 (UTC)

Question about nonsense posts

Just saw you deleted something that Rittmeister64 (that guy who ragequit the wiki because you wouldn't let him insult other users and blocked him for a week) posted, and I was wondering what you thought of this and this. Looks to me like subtle trolling. Jeff (talk|stalk) 06:08, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing it out, the only trolls i like are the race in eq2 ;). --ChillispikeSig  Chillispike-bubble 11:11, April 2, 2013 (UTC)
I didn't see those at the time, but Chilli's taken care of them now. I was willing to let 1 by to give the benefit of the doubt, but if he's been making more random spam posts the longer suspension is warranted. Thanks for catching it, McJeff. --lordebon (talk) 13:39, April 2, 2013 (UTC)


Item Stat Display

Not sure if this is a big issue, or if it can be fixed but I've noticed some item stats display in different orders in-game than they do when the are shown on the Wikia. The only one I know of right now is that Multi Attack Chance (multi) shows up above Spell Weapon Multi Attack Chance (swmulti) on an item in the game, but the Wikia shows swmulti above multi. On the Template:EquipInformation, the swmulti stat is right above the multi stat. Is that why? Vagar (talk) 22:03, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
