Item Properties Template Addition

I was unsuccessful in adding the following to the item properties nav template. It should take up to 12 lists, if I read it correctly. Not sure why this wouldn't display. Any help would be appreciated.

|group11=Gargoyles Only |list11=Blood Drinker • Battle Lust • Damage Eater • Casting Focus • Hit Curse • Hit Fatigue • Hit Mana Drain • Reactive Paralyze • Resonance • Soul Charge • Splintering Weapon

These props should also be added to Template:Infobox_item. I've added Soul Charge and Poision Resonance before for the two stealable artifacts, shall I add the other ones or would you like them to be added after the above change occurs? User:Nimuaq 01:41, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
I see no reason to wait. Please feel free to add those items when you like. I've created a page for the Gargoyles Only property that also does not appear in the item properties nav template, so if you're in the Template:Infobox_item could you add that too? You are a contributing machine! Thanks for the effort! Ceruleus 02:04, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. The gargoyles only property were already there with the tag: 'gargsonly'. I've added the others. Since these properties became available, I've created the Artifacts (Stygian Abyss) page and category and filled the artifacts that I know. Some of them are still empty since I cannot find them in any shard. I'm uploading the pictures and creating the page as soon as I find the specific artifact. All pics are less than 1kb and they are unique to uoguide, meaning they are not taken from anywhere else.Nimuaq 23:19, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

You have been given permissions to edit protected pages now. I need a way to contact you off UOGuide, either ICQ me or send me an email. Contact info on my user page. - JC the Builder 19:33, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
Congratulations! You've really put in a lot of great work. --Ceruleus 03:53, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Nimuaq, I'm still waiting for you to contact me. Thanks. - JC the Builder 21:58, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm afraid to say that I wont be around for a while and I'm really not sure if I'll come back and continue to play. Best of luck UOGuide! Nimuaq 21:31, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
I hope you will return soon Nimuaq, you have done a lot of great work. - JC the Builder 23:27, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Bard Masteries

Awesome work on the Bard Masteries! --Tancred RedStar 15:55, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back

Good to see you editing again. I hope you will be around for at least a little while. =] - JC the Builder 01:39, 19 July 2010 (UTC) Thanks, I'll try. Nimuaq 12:48, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Treasure Map Updates

A big thank you for getting all the data in. I will feature it in this month's newsletter. - JC the Builder 14:38, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

The information on two of the new items (three with playing cards) and some of the guardians are not complete. I have some doubts about whether or not Creeping vines can be found on Level 1 maps too.Nimuaq 20:30, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I have gotten quite a few creeping vines but I am not sure if they come from lvl 1. If I see any I will let you know. Also I am wondering something about mining with tmaps. If you have 105 skill due to gloves of mining +5 does that mean you will get an extra tile bonus? Judging from the skill gap inbetween 3-4 tiles I seriously doubt it...but that doesn't mean that you dont. Have you experimented with this already? OWN 13:56, 26 Jan 2011 (UTC)

I havent tried that yet but I will check it in test center asap. Nimuaq 06:42, 26 January 2011 (PST)
I just tried using the mining gloves at 100.0 skill but I didnt get any tile bonus from them (still at 4 tiles away). Yet I could dig the chest 4 tiles away at 99.0 real skill and +1 mining gloves, so you can dig the chest from 4 tiles away at 95.0 skill using a +5 mining gloves.Nimuaq 08:23, 26 January 2011 (PST)
You could go even further and equip Jacobs Pickaxe while digging, thus enabling you to drop mining to 90 - but I don't think this is really practial. Using imbued mining gloves is a good idea though. Will try that on my fisher-thunter. His template is a bit crammed ;) --Merion 16:17, 26 January 2011 (PST)

Event Calendar Entry

Did you select Drachenfels when you submitted that event? It did not show in the database that a location was selected and it is supposed to give an error if you forget to. - JC the Builder 12:04, 15 September 2010 (PDT)

Yes, I did select Drach. Nimuaq 20:33, 15 September 2010 (PDT)

What could I do?

You are doing so much with the new content, I don't want to have another conflict like with the Lobster Fishing. If you could say one thing that needs attention I will work on it tomorrow. - JC the Builder 19:38, 25 September 2010 (PDT)

I dont open the edit page and spend hours no more, so I dont think we will have any conflicts. I decided to find this Level 7 map, I completed more than 20 Level 6 maps so far, havent found any Level 7s inside. The title attarcted me: A Diabolically Drawn Treasure Map. You can shout in general chat and I can respond, since I'm on the shard whenever I edit content.Nimuaq 20:15, 25 September 2010 (PDT)
What I mean is I don't want to spend a bunch of time researching the same thing you are. For example if I didn't know you were trying to do level 7 maps I could have done the same thing. I would rather focus on areas which no one is working on. - JC the Builder 20:18, 25 September 2010 (PDT)
I'm adding a currently working on: section to my user page. Nimuaq 20:30, 25 September 2010 (PDT)

Cooking image changes

Go for it! I uploaded most of those images back then because there simply werent any before. It was also early on in my wikying before I "knew better", so now the preferred form is png for small items with transparent backgrounds! --Tancred RedStar 13:04, 27 September 2010 (PDT)

/* Vendors */

Do I answer you here or in my talk? Wasn't sure so I put the answer in my talk so check it out. --TullyMars 14:10, 6 June 2011 (PDT)

Cleanup and protected pages

I've started the monumental task of cleaning up categories and articles and I'm running into a few roadblocks. There's already a few articles I've come across that are protected that I can't edit (Category:Stubs, Template:Stub, Template:Infobox item, Template:Itembox, Template:Item Set) to change the category usage. What's the best way to go about getting these fixed? I'd hate to overload you with a bunch of requests, as I'm sure I'll find plenty more.

Also, I've created a {{Delete}} template to identify pages that should be deleted, with a reason given. I hope I'm not stepping on anybody's toes with my changes but there's some added complexity that I feel is just unnecessary and/or redundant. --Alianin 07:36, 5 April 2012 (PDT)

Wanted Pages


   I've been working to help out some some of the dead-end pages, and have just started sifting through the "wanted articles" section. I had thought that for the "Apprentice" page, I shall create a new page entitled "Skill Titles" and just put a table in with all the skill names from 30-120, and then professional titles such as carpenter / swordsman / etc and have apprentice redirect to it? I know you like to clean up after messy edits, so I thought I'd run this by you before I give you a headache.

I eagerly await your response!Aion1125 18:36, 27 June 2012 (PDT)

Hello! We have about 1,705 articles on the wanted pages list and 1,401 of them are only linked from a single article. Like the Apprentice article, we usually focus on the ones that are linked by a good number of other articles.
Creating an article for skill titles is a great idea. Alianin started the article Title a couple of weeks ago, we can link the new article there. We can also add the loyalty ratings from The Awakening on it.
We appreciate every contribution to the guide and we don't emphasize on form to not to discourage contributors. So please make any changes and create any articles you see fit. Thanks for your help. (guess the gender again :) ). Nimuaq 05:06, 28 June 2012 (PDT)
