Image Policy: White?

I was reading the image policy over again and noticed the warning against clothing with any part white. Since you have some screenshots uploaded with white included, I was wondering if I'm interpreting this incorrect. If I am getting it right, I would like to know when it is okay to use white, and when it is not. Thank you and sorry to be a bother. :) --Vif 07:24, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

The white/black warning only pertains if the color makes it impossible or difficult to see the details. So, having white/black is fine if it doesn't conceal intricate parts of the clothing. If you need it, I'm sure I can find examples. Thanks for asking! - Powder Rune 01:09, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Oh alright! Thank you for clearing that up. I was always confused. By the way I like your style. --Vif 04:33, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Deleted User Page T3T

Haii Rune! I found my user page erased this morning... but it made me realized about the policy... LOL I didn't look at it earlier. Anyways, I hope I can contribute to the wiki page as mush as I can... Since I am korean, I get on the korean server to find out about the game and try to post it here! Let me know if you need me to "spy" on KR server... ^^;;; stay cool!

Well, the policy was sort of new and we announced on May 10 that we would start purging user pages that don't follow the policy starting May 15, so I'm not surprised that visitors that don't come here and/or log in every day didn't notice. It's alright, though, you didn't have a serious offense and because your user page was small and concise it didn't count against you. I just have to enforce the policy. --Powder Rune 02:12, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Smash picture

Ahaha, I just saw a picture you put up for Smash, at least i think its you, the person is wearing pink and white, so that does narrow the choices. Great Shot by the way. Jgmartin 17:12, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Haha, thanks! I'm glad you found it amusing. I wanted to put dynamic screen shots on certain articles to make them more attractive--sort of like flipping through a book just to look at the pictures. I appreciate the comment, and I'll probably continue it with some more skills when I have time =p --Powder Rune 03:04, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Images of mine for deletion:

I understand you are not to make exceptions, so I will list the images I'm content with being deleted, to lower my image count under 10.

All the images of my pets (honestly, they're unnecessary), and the image of my Ego Gladius at the bottom. The direct file names are as follows:


Once those images are deleted, that should leave 6 images (that I have uploaded to the wiki; for the purpose of my user page). I'm sure I haven't uploaded more, but there is always a possibility I am wrong; and if you find any, feel free to delete them. Thanks. ~Rusty~

Thanks for understanding and letting me know. I'll see to taking care of this during the purge beginning on Friday.
Also, since you've now given me the image file names, you can start altering your user page to make it fit within the policy guidelines. Thanks a lot, Rusty! --Powder Rune 21:52, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Blocking Accounts

Why not just make a template for the blocked accounts instead of always having to copy/paste the statement? --Kevin Talk«) 23:00, 15 May 2009 (UTC) Example :

Locked.png This account has been locked due to violation of the Mabinogi World Wiki Policy.
If you are the account's owner and would wish to unlock your account, please read the policy and post an appeal here.

If you're going to use this, I'd suggest placing this on the UserPage of the account that was locked so that it is clearly obvious and visible :) --Kevin Talk«) 23:00, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Also need a picture for locked :D --Kevin Talk«) 23:00, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
You know, I think that's a great idea. I'll let Angevon know and we'll see to using this template for future purges. Thanks! --Powder Rune 23:02, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Locked.png This page has been deleted & locked due to violation of the Mabinogi World Wiki Policy.
If this is your page and you want to be unlocked, please read the policy and post an appeal here.

Testing the way it looks. Just changed it up a bit to fit Angevon's more descriptive wording of the message. --Powder Rune 23:27, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

As nice as they are, on second thought, I'd rather leave the deleted and locked pages completely blank, so that the names are in red the next time we go through them (so we can skip easily skip over them). Maybe we can modify the wording and put it on the account's talk page instead. ---Angevon 20:48, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
That's actually what I've been doing--placing this on the talk page and wiping the main page completely. Feel free to change up the wording if you'd like! --Powder Rune 20:11, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Here's what I am going to use for any accounts which end up getting a null-route (in case the victim comes on from another system:

Locked.png An IP address for this account has been null-routed due to gross violation of the Mabinogi World Wiki Policy.
If you are the account's owner and wish to rectify this situation, please read the policy and post an appeal here. NOTE: Removal of nullroutes is at the server owner's sole discretion!

I set up a template store in a subpage of my user page as a repository for these templates; any administrator is more than welcome to raid it. --Irjustman 06:51, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

The uh.. human ranged attack picture

funny thing is, even though I blurred out my char name and guild name, you can still kinda read it. So, thats probably why you took it down, but, can I reupload it if I were to like.. cross out/blur the names more? I don't want to tick you off or anything by reuploading the picture when you took them down =X--♫ѕτя♪ (I can't find an "a" D:) 20:41, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

The image policy specifically says to Ctrl+N when taking screen shots for the wiki, which is why I removed your picture. I don't consider blurring or crossing names out an alternative, because it looks unprofessional and messy. It's much easier and looks a lot better if you just use Ctrl+N.
So, if you still want to put up a picture for ranged attack (or anything else, really), please take your screenshots with Ctrl+N enabled.
And don't worry, I'm not a huge meanie out there to get you =p I'm just enforcing the policy here. --Powder Rune 01:52, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Ah, okays, but I won't bother trying again, it took me like 10 tries to get it right =.=" *lazy*--♫ѕτя♪ (I can't find an "a" D:) 19:10, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Re: Holy freakin' cow...

Thank you --ZRoc 22:50, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Oversized Image

Nexum uploaded this image two days ago, and it exceeds the permitted size limit for images. I asked him to resize it, but it doesn't seem he's been on since then. Because it's Friday, I figured I'd inform you about it. :) --Aramet 17:47, 5 June 2009 (UTC)


Oh, good job going through the accounts. I'm kind of single-mindedly working on the gloves pages and wasn't really paying attention. I guess you're finally done with high school, eh?

As for your OCD, well, good luck with it hahaha. We really -should- be consistent, though. I'm kinda bad at that myself. Hopefully people will go for it, or else you'll have a lot of cleaning up after them to do.

I honestly haven't really been messing with the new monster template. It's pretty and all but I'd rather format the equipment pages and work on other projects. ---Angevon 19:20, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

By the way, you can also move pictures into the right filename for the template instead of re-uploading. "move" is one of the top tabs. ---Angevon 02:39, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Re:Moving/Redirecting Images to fit the Monster Template

Right. All you need to do is make the page "File:nameofmonster.jpg" (it ALWAYS has to end in .jpg) and redirect it to the file you want to appear on the template. For example: with the White Ant Lion, you would create (not upload) the page File:White Ant Lion.jpg and redirect it to File:White Ant Lion.png. Does that help at all? --Aramet 04:31, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Heh, that confused me for a while, too. But I found out that if you put the templates onto the monster page before redirecting all of the images, you need to edit (using the edit tab at the top) and save without changing anything... If that makes any sense? Then all of the images will appear. And, because you didn't change anything, the edit will not appear on the recent changes. --Aramet 04:41, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
You're very welcome! :) --Aramet 04:44, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Hot Air Balloon at Zardin

Uhh what should I call the page for this? "Hot Air Balloon" doesn't feel descriptive enough. Ballooning maybe? Hmm... Balloon Riding? Balloon Dragon Slaying? You're more creative than me, come up with something~ ---Angevon 16:49, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Equips formatting

Hey Rune, if you're going to go formatting equipment pages, please use the cleaned-up coding:

{| border="0" width="50" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" style="text-align:center; background-color: #aaa;" | bgcolor="#000" |[[File:Icon.gif]] |- | bgcolor="#000" | <font color="#FFFFFF">2 x 2</font> |}

Because I'm OCD on some things, too. Thanks. ---Angevon 03:11, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Red Succubus/Black Succubus (Advanced) Images

Can you please move Red succubus.jpg to File:Red Succubus.jpg and File:Black Succubus adv.jpg to File:Black Succubus (Advanced).jpg? :) --Aramet 17:54, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

No problem. ^^ The File:Red Succubus adv.jpg image needs to be moved to File:Red Succubus (Advanced).jpg now. File:CyclopsBlue.jpg and File:CyclopsRed.jpg can be deleted, as Voichi uploaded new versions with the correct name. --Aramet 22:43, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

RE: Limitations

I'm at work hehe (slow day). I've been using the first way on every page I've made. I've seen others using it 2nd other way. I prefer the gender and race restrictions separated out on two different lines myself. ---Angevon 18:41, 25 June 2009 (UTC)


I'm planning to separate out the various subversions of karu forest ruins. What would you like me to call the pages? Example could be "Karu Pot-Belly Spider Dungeon". I'll use whatever naming method you'd prefer. ---Angevon 17:52, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Bank Trans.

Why -are- you removing the bank transaction fee info from equipment pages? ---Angevon 22:49, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Your recent images...

I'm doing so right now. Thank you for the reminder. Lloyd 13:17, 5 July 2009 (EST)

Special list of users?

I'm curious if there's a certain list you use to find accounts that have user pages that qualify for deletion? --Aramet 03:41, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Alright, thanks. :) I was looking through Special:Logs/newusers, heh. --Aramet 03:54, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
If only, right? =P I have a question, though: If a user has a user page (short or long) and only a couple of contributions, does the user page get deleted? I'm afraid of screwing up and accidentally deleting something that shouldn't have been. --Aramet 04:03, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Huh, I didn't see anything specifically saying you must have at least one contribution. I just looked over it again, too; maybe I'm skipping something. I suppose "if you have no contributions" refers to at least one modification to a wiki article, though. Thanks. :) --Aramet 04:24, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Jewel Request

If you know anything about it, could you post a list of jewel upgrades and the jewels needed to use them? I'm sort of curious about that because both my longbow and my gladius need a jewel repair and only the gladius' is listed as an example.

Karis Wizard Suit

I'm pretty sure the only difference between males and females wearing Karis Wizard Suit is the chest. If we're going to do that for Karis Wizard Suit, why not everything else that varies within the chest? ._.;; --Kevin Talk«) 20:39, 20 July 2009 (UTC)


If it basically means 'improve', why not use 'improve'? --Kevin Talk«) 06:53, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Ancient Secrets of Irinids - Curious Voight

Where did you get those requirements? It's not on the nexon website, nor did have to do any of that to complete the quest.--恒升  评论  18:39, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Okay, can you please tell me why

you deleted my picture--Dtdsora AKA Viri The White Knight-in-training 19:25, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

I had been going through the deletion log and she had specified it did not follow the image policy. Please refer to that, it could have been an incorrect extension, such as .gif or .jpg or something, but just make sure all of your pics follow the policy. Koil 19:28, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

HOW did it not!


Someone joined the wiki today with the username "PowderRuins." They erased all content on your page. I don't know whether you acknowledged this or not, but I thought you'd like to know. --Aramet 06:31, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Potion Template

Potion Template

I'm going to give you the same speech I gave to Angevon about my new potion templates with a little edit.

Well, I've manage to create 2 potion templates that I think are pretty decent, other than the fact that it's a large body for a information table. I want your opinion on what you think of the templates so far, even though they are incomplete. Here is the link to the template and 3 examples of the template used on potions.


Here are some notes on the tables :

I don't think the actual size of the item is required (I made a math function for the size) so if you don't like it, I can remove it.
Potion Making information will only show if 'Rank' field is filled in.
Consumable and Toxicity will only show if 'Consumable' field is filled in.
Sold By will say 'This item is not sold by any store vendors.' unless 'SellList' is filled in
Required Rank was just a space filler, even though only 3 potions have a rank that is not the same as the potion rank (Hp/mana/stamina 50 = novice)
I need to find a way to make potion making information 'Show/Hide' togglable like the hidden text template, but I have no idea how to make the look match the template.
These templates are only for Potions. I'll make other templates later.
Template 2

So, after you're finished looking at them, send all complaints/comments/suggestions to (Jk, it's my talk page link. x3). Please! Any comments on this project will help me through this a lot, so I know what to do and what not to do. Thanks Rune. --κєνıи тαıĸ«) 09:00, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

(©w © )ª

It's me again, Rusty. Last time I left a note here, I was letting you know which images to delete that I uploaded solely for my user page. Well, this time, I'm here for the same thing. I'm going to be moving over all the tables and stuff on my page to a page of my own on a site I "own" with a few other friends of mine from IRC; which can be viewed here, my own personal page being here, and my Mabinogi directory. I'll just leave that Mabinogi Link on my User Page to showcase my characters and stuff via my own page (if that's ok). So for the time, I'll be moving over my tables and getting used to the website html and stuff, and prettying up that page, and you can feel free to delete my images I have on this wiki.
[[File:SerjTarlach.png]], [[File:SaiTarlach2.png]], [[File:PingTarlach.png]], [[File:KaaskTarlach.png]], [[File:QuissTarlach.png]]
Thanks for the help Powder. -Rusty 00:54, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Spark Leather Armor: Picture

Hey Rune, I just uploaded my very first pics ever on Wiki and I want to make sure they are in accordance w/ the policy. Please look at Spark Leather Armor and let me know. Thanks, --Demaetri (Talk) 05:34, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Wiki Tips for New Editors

Heya! Your userpage's information seems very useful, may I collect some of it to use on the Wiki Tips page? Specifically, these:

2 New to the wiki? Here's a few ways you can help: 3 About User Pages and User Page Images 4 Monster Templates 5 Equipment Templates

Or you can add them in yourself. =) whichever seems best to you. -- ladywinter ~{talk page}~ 01:24, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Monster Tables, your opinion?

I'm trying out several possible new templates for the normal monsters.

They are based on the Shadow mission monsters template.

Since you seem to be in touch with more of the mabi community than I am, can you ask around to get opinions? Both on the new template and on whether the sections should be opened or closed? -- ladywinter ~{talk page}~ 14:15, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

You deleted File:StyleMonsterNone.png

Why... It still had some use... Even if you didn't notice it ~kotarou3 TALKCONTRIBS 08:28, 16 June 2010 (UTC)


Thanks so much for finishing up the males clothing list... i've been so burned out with getting the new style put in the list. i really appreciate it.--chrissy of hailfire 11:11, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Question about something

I usually consider this to be one of the best game wikis i've ever visited, and I always try to use it as a model (to a point) for the few wikis I start up. I'm starting up a serious wiki, and i'm curious on one fact: how does the wiki get images that are in the data? Things like inventory pictures, and things like that. A wiki without images is not a wiki at all, so i'm really rather curious of the fact that you have perfect quality images as if they came from the data. I know there's not a decrypted version of mabinogi, so how did this wiki manage to do it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Erich (talkcontribs) .

Well, we decrypt it from the packages and get screenies ingame ~kotarou3 TALKCONTRIBS 03:10, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

What packages? In the game's data? Vindictus isn't exactly.. built like mabinogi considering it's using the source engine in a compressed state. Hell, I know the source engine's ins and outs and I can't figure out what the hell is going on. Sigh. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Erich (talkcontribs) .

Before modding, there's always screenshots. Only less than a few people here can extract things from the client. Perhaps in a few years someone will make something for vindictus.--Hengsheng120·TALKCONTRIBS 03:31, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
