Drakkos

Hey hey - I made your change, and it seems to work (you may have to force a refresh for it) - for reference, CSS changes can be made using the MediaWiki:Common.css special page. I don't know what permissions you need to do that, but give that a go if you need to make any amendments.  :-D

Thanks, Drakkos 10:10, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey hey - I asked Ilde and Chat about potential new admin for the wiki (since we're down a few), and they suggested you because of your fine wiki work. So I made that so. Without bothering to ask, because that's just how I roll. Any objections, and I'll undo it of corsue.  :-D

Email preferences

Hi, I just noticed that it currently it is not possible to view or change the registered mail address that should be associated with my user profile (I would expect it in my preferences). Also, in the past I know I received email notifications if something was added to my user talk page. DoBBiN told me that after my edit of his user talk page he did not receive a notification. Are these changes that are down to the currently installed version, or is that something that could be fixed? --Gunde 19:30, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Account Deletion

Hi

Someone asked me in game if I could either delete the account someone has made in their name and create one that was genuinely them, or either reset the pw on it or change the email to their email so they can do a p/w recovery - but I don't seem to have a mechanism for any of those.

I blocked the fake account for the time being, but would be nice to resolve this issue.

Zex

Hi!
I don't have Pit's email, so I changed the password in the db and mudmailed it.
There was no email in the account and no edits with it.

Mirror and/or backend access

Hi Frazyl,

how are your plans for the mirror I set up coming along? Yesterday all day the wiki here was down due to the MySQL server refusing the connection, so how about setting up a cron job that copies all data across to the mirror on a daily basis?

Alternatively, is there a chance anybody else except you gets full access to all required features so they can check and fix problems like the one yesterday?

Hi Frazyl,
is there any chance of at least getting a database dump every now and then, for backup purposes, and for at least having a read-only mirror?
--Gunde 22:42, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
I must admit, I'd feel a lot happier if we had a working mirror. The eggs were all in one basket with Drakkos, and I've seen other brilliant sites lost because all the eggs were in one basket (the original spellcheck would be a prime example). If nothing else it would be nice to know that there was a backup mechanism in place such that if something happened to Frazyl, it would not mean the loss of the wiki which, after all, represents a lot of time and effort on the part of many players, such that we are merely the custodians nof their work. My worst case scenario would be that Frazyl would suffer some accident or illness and all that we would see would be first, an inability to contact Frazyl, and eventually, the expiry of the hosting and loss of all the data. It would make sense to protect the database against such an occurence. Zexium 19:32, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Frazyl, I can see you are actively doing something in the wiki again. I hope you read this page as well, could you please comment on the above points by Zexium?

Pet gallery

Hi Frazyl, Annabeth told me that I should contact you here. I have an idea for starting a wiki page that would serve as a gallery of players' pets, similar to the MUD client gallery. I need to know whether this is attainable, please.

--Mursi 05:56, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

You mean a page with pictures depicting pets? You can do that yes if you can get people to submit pictures and add them to the page of have them add them. Then just link the pictures in the table (but I can fix that part if it doesn't work right.)

Poisons

Because half the point of the poisons is discovering them for yourself. We don't need the recipes shown to everyone when in game the information is restricted to senior assassins. That book you're quoting from is not available to just anybody for a reference. Sorry, while I'm behind the wiki and the help it provides the simple fact is not everything should be included in it, for instance the specific details of restricted information. Giving solutions for quests is fine because that info is available to everyone in game. Poisons most definitely are not.

Riannon (talk) 01:28, 25 December 2016

I still intensely disagree with the recipes for poisons and bombs being shown on this site. The info is very restricted in game and not available to most players or even newbie assassins. You should NOT persist in adding the recipes to the wiki.

Riannon made a plea on my user talk page to which I have replied.

Moonlit Market

Some changes should be made. First, 150 tumbling may no longer be a guaranteed safe landing when leaping. I've just failed 5 times in a row where normally I've succeeded. Second, the vendors do change each night. While you may get some the same, there are new ones and it has nothing to do with resets. I know that for a fact

Change Name

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to change my username without making a new account?

Thank you.

Hi Frazyl,

it seems that I cannot edit the Login page any more. Can you see the reason why?

Kind regards,

Hey, sorry to bother you. I'm having trouble trying to upload a PNG file - it's telling me the file is empty even though it shows me the preview? There aren't spaces or anything like that in the filename. Vashti (talk) 18:34, 25 April 2017 (EDT)

Formatting Guidelines

Hi! You seem to be one of the head honchos around here and have been helpful to me in the past, so unfortunately for you I'm gonna bug you for a moment. :) My big question is: are there formatting guidelines anywhere? If not and if I wanted to try to put something together like that, what would you recommend regarding naming, categorizing, etc? As a rough example, I was thinking of a page mashing up something like this, specifically the "Page and image formatting" section, and this General Formatting page, as rough examples. I know we're pretty laid back here regarding consistency across the wiki but my thinking is that it might help other people like me who feel more confident in editing with those rough structures to touch back upon.

I've seen some example pages but I haven't seen things about general best practices. Like... should we space twice between sentences? Should section titles have only the first word capitalized or all of them? When formatting text the player enters into the MUD, should it be in "quotes" or in <code>? I assume the default spelling should be the British version, which I would also note.

I'd also like to make a list of or otherwise draw attention to useful but simple templates (Template:Concepthelp, for example) and add them to a section on this theoretical page or to a highly generic page example. I am still ignorant of many of these templates and sometimes find myself stumbling upon them on older, more established articles after using a clunkier method.

That's my brain-dump for now. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, and for any opinions, knowledge, or advice you have to offer! -Kymtastic (talk) 14:45, 11 July 2017 (EDT)

StS season prize

Dear Frazyl,

I deposited your monetary Sights to See season prize for you on the 16th (right before it would have become void) - I hope you'll be able to collect the parcel before it times out on the 30th.

Best wishes, Jeanie (talk) 16:53, 25 December 2017 (EST)
