text replace

If you want to change a thing on lots of pages at once, admins can use a ReplaceText function; just request for me to do it and I'll do it for you.

Thanks for the notice. Didn't know that text replace function existed. It could have saved a lot of work as I was so wishing I could use the AWB here. =\ There are still 80 pages that need the deprecated DropList replaced with ObtainList. You can find them in Needs Updating.

Ranged Weapons

Why did you give Ranged Weapons its own list templates? If it was something difficult like Cylinders I'd understand but you can do Ranged Weapons much more easily.

Pyro - (Talk)15:46, 5 July 2012

Plus, Range already was in the List template... It auto-detects if the Range Parameter exists. If it does, it shows it under Hit Count and Speed.

Speculation from a GM=News

Pyro - (Talk)14:17, 30 May 2012

Actually, no. Speculation is speculation, and it doesn't belong on the front page.

TheFarix15:02, 30 May 2012

It's still news, deal with it.

Pyro - (Talk)15:10, 30 May 2012

Speculation is never news, even if it is form a Nexon Staff member. There have been plenty of times Sabina speculation about when various issues being fixed or released, but end up being wrong. News announcements should be based on official announcements from Nexon.

TheFarix15:20, 30 May 2012

First of all, that's your opinion. I don't recall that being a rule. Stop this revision war please, this is still news worth and it even says that it is speculation.

Pyro - (Talk)15:29, 30 May 2012

Speculation is never news. And if you want to stop the revision war, then you are free to walk way.

TheFarix15:31, 30 May 2012

If you really feel strongly about this bring it up to Angevon or Ikkisuki and we might be able to make a policy concerning this, but at the minute, there is no rule for this so your removal is no different from vandalism.

Pyro - (Talk)15:31, 30 May 2012

I'd also like to point out that speculation is often news, you obviously don't watch the news.

Pyro - (Talk)15:33, 30 May 2012

Ehh if you ask me, if it came from a community manager like Sabina, or a GM, it's usually of great importance since:

  • A) They probably got the info from the head developers
  • B) They work for Nexon, so information is usually circulated.

x.x though it is usually speculation, sometimes it is true, and sometimes it is not. Circumstances change, but players have the right to know what's going on in the forums through tidbits of information since they either never surf the forums, or hardly use external sites to gather information other than this wiki.

S•A•R•I•A15:45, 30 May 2012

Guys just wondering, how do you guys know if a maintenance is extended by hours? And if so how can I have the ability to know the extent of a maintenance?

Joyce13729812:08, 7 June 2012

Just check the maintenance's page like we do. O .o They should have an amendment at the top of the page.

Pyro - (Talk)12:29, 7 June 2012

Matanance was suppose to end at 12pm PDT. Then, at around 11:30pm, Nexon announced that it has been extended to 2pm PDT. It's not hard to do the math to see that it is a 2 hour extension.

TheFarix13:16, 7 June 2012

I for one would still prefer information on Nekojima, even if it will never reach NA. And have known others to also use that page for information. You really shouldn't mark a controversial subject up for deletion without discussing it.

Pyro - (Talk)19:58, 24 April 2012

All of the FMA pages were deleted because they were never going to be released in NA. So why keep other pages on things that will never be released in NA? There should be consistantancey here.

TheFarix13:38, 26 April 2012

Why were the FMA pages removed? They never said it will never reach NA... And I disagree, keeping information > condensing information.

Pyro - (Talk)18:09, 26 April 2012

Angevon deleted the entire set back in January on the bases that they will never going to be implemented. I don't see why Nikojima would be an exception to that rational.

TheFarix18:17, 26 April 2012

I don't see why FMA stuff applied either... Doesn't mean we'll never get it. Korea even got them a year late.

Pyro - (Talk)18:20, 26 April 2012

They had to get the license for the stuff to be published. Look at AnoHana for JP Mabi (Second mabi-lized anime). It took them a while to get the license to publish the items. I think a fraction of profits went towards the creator or something. In any case, we're gonna have to wait until Nexon NA gets the okay.

☽ミ☆カ☆ヤ☾20:07, 26 April 2012

Exactly as Lexis said, that being said, nobody can say "they were never going to be released in NA" until NA, DevCAT, or the creators say so. Either way, I don't think we can compare the removal of clothing we will never get with the removal of places we will never get.

Pyro - (Talk)20:48, 26 April 2012

Just FYI... the FMA stuff is translated in the game-files.

Code 200815:47, 30 May 2012

Crafting Images

How are you getting them?... Some of the items aren't out yet.

Pyro - (Talk)14:16, 23 April 2012

They are coming directly form the client's DDS files. It's just a matter of matching the correct image with the correct item, which prowling through itemdb.xml helps with.

TheFarix14:40, 23 April 2012

Yes, but the crafting images=/=the dds files, they are different shades of gray...

Pyro - (Talk)14:49, 23 April 2012

That's because the contrast has to be adjusted.

TheFarix14:57, 23 April 2012

The easiest way is to have someone drop the item, you right click it, and have them pick it up while the window is still up. That's how I take the images. It is exactly the same as the "crafting in progress" image.

☽ミ☆カ☆ヤ☾16:13, 23 April 2012

Oh, thanks. I'll try that when I come across a missing image.

Pyro - (Talk)16:24, 23 April 2012

I try to replace them but always slips my mind @@ plus some items are harder to come by...

☽ミ☆カ☆ヤ☾16:28, 23 April 2012

While they not an exact, they are only one to 5 points off and no one is really going to notice the difference. So don't fret too much if you can't find a particular scroll for an image.

TheFarix16:45, 23 April 2012

o.o must be my screen then...the both look the same to me xD;; :x but as long as something is there, I can't complain.

☽ミ☆カ☆ヤ☾16:52, 23 April 2012

I was referring to the images from the DDS files and the images as they appear in game.

TheFarix16:57, 23 April 2012

Looking at some of the images on the tailoring list, such as the Traveler Outfits and the Clover Pick Costumes, I'm beginning to think that many of the images are regular inventory icons converted to grayscale. At which point, they will not be close to an accurate representation of the in-progress image.

TheFarix17:08, 24 April 2012


My apologies, I was looking at the 105_to_106 files and it said Monk everywhere in there. I'll ask NxBoo or Sabina and get to the bottom of it.

Food Template

Pyro - (Talk)20:04, 6 April 2012


TheFarix20:27, 6 April 2012

Also, about the Shadow Monster template:

Um why is there no edit/link button next to these bandits?



Pyro - (Talk)22:41, 11 April 2012

That one I don't understand as I just check Template:StyleShadowMonster and the edit and anchor links are there.

TheFarix04:07, 12 April 2012

Where did you get the data of when what production feature was released when? Because I kind of remember there being an update releasing Handicrafting and kits, which would been its not from Beta, but I'm probably wrong.

Pyro - (Talk)05:15, 29 March 2012

The data came from the production.xml file, which lists Generation and Season the item was introduced. Some of these, like the event only items, are clearly wrong. But tracking down other mistakes will be difficult at best.

I'm still trying to figure out what production data will ultimately be included in the data templates based on what data will be the most helpful to least helpful.

TheFarix10:15, 29 March 2012

Just wondering.

But why did you put the giant puppet sitting positions up for deletion without a reason on the page?

Anemki12:45, 8 March 2012

I didn't put it up for deletion. I put it up for a rename. For one, in accordance with image policy, file extensions should be in lower case.

Make all file extensions lower case (use .jpg not .JPG, for example). Upon upload you can edit the target filename to correct the extension.


Second, the naming standards for race and sex is <Race> <Sex>. For example Giant Male. The image you uploaded had the two reversed "Male Giant".

TheFarix12:58, 8 March 2012

When I uploaded it, that's how it was set on the upload page. But alright.

Anemki13:35, 8 March 2012

(In case you didn't figure this out already.)

  1. ifexist is an expensive parser function cap, and there's a limit on how many times it can be used. If one exceeds the limit, the next #ifexist just breaks.
Akira19:13, 7 March 2012

Ok, that explains why the last image on the test page was breaking. At first, I though it was a problem with the new template, then the image.

TheFarix19:15, 7 March 2012

Er, about those file redirects...

There wasn't a need to create them. Template:StyleItemEtc has an Icon parameter added in, you just had to put in "|Icon=Note" for the pages using the same icon.

Akira15:08, 25 February 2012

Other than for Hicca's Note, the redirects already existed. I just simply fixed them to point to the correct image.

TheFarix16:53, 25 February 2012

Ah...right. M'bad for missing the lack of "N"s, then.

Akira18:24, 25 February 2012

The server status....

A thread, Thread:User talk:TheFarix/The server status...., was moved from here to Talk:Wiki Home/Automated Server Status. This move was made by Xcelled194 (talk | contribs) on 30 January 2012 at 00:10.

May I ask what the purpose of Template:Ifempty? If it's for blank parameters, there is already a naturally working workaround for that, people just need to know the coding 'style.'

The documentation page should explain its purpose. But it's a much easier way then using multiple #if: statements for default values.

TheFarix17:40, 23 November 2011

Pulling up multiple instances of the same template that uses the same if statement 9 times is much more workloading than a simple if statement. :l

The only difference is the overhead for a template call. But the workload is negligible and the avoids confusion than using nested if statements.
