just wanted to stop by and say good job and keep up the awesome work --[[User:Uberfuzzy|Uberfuzzy]] 17:31, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
== Awesome job, Melfius! ==
I just had to add my comments of what a '''wonderful''' job you have done here! This will be used and appreciated by more people than I can count. I've already told my entire guild and anyone in game I know about your site and the work you have done.
Again, my sincerest thanks and again, congratulations on a job well done!
Paul Hughes
==Something to Work on Next==
Any requests on what ye'd like next?
--[[User:Melfius|Melf]] 14:47, 15 January 2008 (UTC) ambitous/extended/large of a project are you ready to tackle after all the really great work you did on the collections? --[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 15:52, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
::You kidding? The more detailed the better! Only ting I could think of was either re-doing the Mounts like I suggested earlier, or compiling a list of in-game-correct zone names (with all the "A" "An" and "The"s in place).
::If you have something you'd rather I do, feel free to tell me! I love a good project!
::--[[User:Melfius|Melf]] 18:38, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
:::Well, here goes (take a deep breath and feel free to say no, btw, and go on with whatever you planned to do. My other hobbies often have me directing people's work, so I can really dish out plans and dreams if I'm not careful and if you're really not into what I'm suggesting, you are completely not going to offend me).
:::Take a look at the [[:Category:Housing Zones]] page. It's ok. In fact, it's not a bad start as things go. Here's what I think we need to do, in no particular order:
:::<strike>*The list on the [[:Category:Housing Zones]] page needs to have sort keys set. This means that each linked item on that page needs to be opened, and the <nowiki>[[Category:Housing Zones]]</nowiki> needs to be changed to <nowiki>[[Category:Housing Zones|street name without the number]]</nowiki>. Any other housing category in there will also need a sort key (like Cat:Freeport Housing or whatever). This kind of sorting will allow the housing zones page to list all the homes by their street name, not the number that preceeds it. Example, all the Erollisi Lane homes would be listed under E instead of under numbers.</strike> <small>(UF fixed this with his template corrections noted below.--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 13:15, 16 January 2008 (UTC)</small>
:::*The list of housing zones may not be complete but we don't know by how much or how little. Could be a little, could be a lot. My personal opinion is that once the sort keys are updated and added, we'll be able to very clearly see what's missing from the list by city. Those missing ones will need to be added and a screenshot of the door leading to it (or the general area in which it lies) will have to be placed on the page of the address (see for reference [[5 Erollisi Lane]], though admittedly the layout could be better).
:::*The info on house purchase and upkeep costs may be out of date, but we're not sure by how much. As with the overall listing, it could be fine or it could be off. We're not sure, but we *are* sure that the max sales displays aren't up to date since the Great Update of LU37. This info needs confirmation and completion on all the pages. The note on the housing zones category page details a little of this.
:::*Here's the really big part (as if the rest weren't enough). We started by have not finished the housing floor plans for each home. There's [[:Category:Housing Floorplans|a category for it]] but we've not continued with what started. The original plan was to do this:
:::**Describe each floorplan and features. Take a look at what's already there and you'll see what I mean.
:::**Take a picture of each room in the floorplan and add it as a thumbnail so people can get an idea of what the general views are in each of the rooms. It doesn't have to be a ton of pictures, just a shot of each room (or two of some of the larger rooms), taken in an empty home to give people an idea of what they're looking at before they buy and without having to zone into each and every instance. It would be a bonus if we could get an actual map floor plan (like architect's blueprints) but I'm not going to hold my breath over that one.
:::**We need a good list of the housing option changes that can be made for each style of house. EQ2traders has a good set of them, but we'd like to have an image gallery set up here at some point. Some of the floorplans have different update options. Right now we have none. Zero. Zip.
:::So....doable? Not your thing? I may have more to add to this but I didn't want to completely terrorize you with ideas (though I may have done that with this abbreviate list).--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 19:15, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
::LOL! Y'all ain't gonna believe this one! I already have an up-to-date spreadsheet on housing information (okay, maybe that's believable, but...) '''AND''' I have "previous experience" in Architectural Design! You want housing? You gonna '''GET''' housing, chere!
::--[[User:Melfius|Melf]] 20:27, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
:::Ah the joys of synchronicity. Have at it. You know the drill. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 20:34, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
[[Template:HouseInformation]] now has a <code>street</code> varible, if filled in, it will be used as the sortkey for all categories the page is in. if not filled in, page is placed in [[:Category:Housing needing street]].
as for the maxsale being not accurate, its not even really filled in that many pages, if you have any data, current or otherwise, fill it in.
anything else you need?

::Just some foresight to see that the Gorowyn housing info was already in! LOL! Sorry!

== Woot! Floor Samples! ==
You go, boy! I'm assuming we get wall and trim samples too? (ohpleaseohpleaseohplease)--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 20:50, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
:Yes, even ceiling samples. Well, for Qeynos, anyway. I need to make some more money so I can get a house in FP and try out all the variations there as well!

== When on IRC? ==
When are we going to see you on IRC, mister? Do we smell? Are we ugly? Do you not luv us any more? Or are ya just avoiding us so we can't say "okay when you're done with that..."? ;-) Thanks again for the housing work.--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 19:02, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
== Lion's Mane Inn FactOK ==
A quick note before I head out for the day. The Lion's Mane Inn fact check tag was replaced with a FactOK tag, but no information on why the fact was ok. The word "info" needs to be replaced with a description of why the info is correct. I'm logging a toon in now to verify the name in South Qeynos, but I'm 99% sure that Lion's Mane Inn is too short. I think the name is longer.--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 20:42, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
:Name is definitely too short. Pic below. (And now I'm off to a superbowl party. See you tonight.)--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 20:51, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
== nodes ==
thanks, it looks much nicer now. sorry for jumping on the header thing, i just new that was going to be an issue, so i jumped in before you changed all of them. i dont know where you got that node info, but i'm not going to question it, it all matches up with notes i had taken, but not put in the system yet. good jorb --[[User:Uberfuzzy|Uberfuzzy]] 02:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
:Oh, I got it the old fashioned way - Went to every zone and looked em up. Good jorb? The Cheat is NOT DEAD!

== Caustic Poison ==
Can you leave me the links to both Caustic Poison AA pages? I've removed the AFD tag on the one you marked until we get this sorted out. I can see some disambiguation problems with this AA because of the crafted items and I want to be sure we're note deleting willy nilly without checking what links to which.--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 21:27, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

== zone moves ==
you said you had a list of zones that needed moving? --[[User:Uberfuzzy|Uberfuzzy]] 13:04, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
:Say you do! He's got a cool toy that needs practice!--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 13:21, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
== Forsaken City / Nizara Tomes ==
How are those pages duplicates? They match the in-game Category:Name format exactly for me. --[[User:Lordebon|lordebon]] 05:02, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
:Ah, never mind, my appologies. I see you are correct now, those are missing the comma. In the future however, for duplicate pages it may be helpful to include a link to the correct page in the AfD. --[[User:Lordebon|lordebon]] 05:05, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
== CQ Types ==
One other thing I noticed in your recent edits... I think you're misunderstanding the CQ type. The CQ type is the prefix... ie Tradeskill: Blah has a CQ type of tradeskill. It is not the fact that they are 'page' type spawns. I like the idea of what you're doing, but if you want to categorize them by whether they're "pages" or "shinies" on the ground you should probably start a new set of categories. --[[User:Lordebon|lordebon]] 20:22, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
I'd like to step in here before something happens that everyone will find less than collaborative. I don't know if either of you have read it, but [[Wikipedia:No_angry_mastodons]] might be a worthwhile read here, among others at Wikipedia regarding the basis of wiki-editing and collaboration. You guys are both doing some excellent work. Let's turn this around to something positive. Rather than continue to edit everyone's talk pages, let's start a discussion here: [[Forum:Collection_Quests]].--[[User:Kodia|Kodia]] 21:49, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
== Note about Books and Coins Icons ==
I deleted [[:Category:Melf's Book Icons]], if you looking for those icons you can find them at [[:Category:Book Icons|Books]] and [[:Category:Coin and Medallion Icons|Coins]] --{{User:Chillispike/SignatureShow}} 20:10, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
