Monster Pages Edit

There are some general editing conventions that you should know:

  • As a general rule, you should not edit a page unless you have information to add or the page is in a state of disrepair. Please do not edit pages simply to match your own editing style (this doesn't seem to be the case for you most of the time, but your recent edit to Morille Mortelle falls into this category).
  • Do not remove information from a page unless it is incorrect or irrelevant to the page - you can never have too much information about a monster. The exception to this is very specific strategy information, which should go with the testimonials on the talk page.
  • We typically do not link to the monster on the monster's own page (resulting in bold text). This is a long-standing convention, so it looks out-of-place when it's only done on a few monster pages.
  • Try to distinguish between spells and status effects when possible. The more clear the page is, the less time dedicated editors have to spend cleaning up after people who don't understand and feel they need to edit the page to clarify (and do so poorly).
  • If something is worded a certain way, try to understand why it's written that way before changing it - many times it's written that way to prevent confusion (and thus unneccessary edits).
  • Use comments. This is especially important when you're removing something from the page, as it's not always obvious why you're removing it.

Thanks, and keep up the good work. ~ Karuberu 16:53, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and the {{testimonials}} template goes at the end of the line, not on a new line. If you see it the other way, please change it - it's just a remnant from when the template was first introduced (there was a good bit of discussion about it back then). ~ Karuberu 21:02, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Ahh, understood. Thank you. ;3 --Eremes 22:04, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Reverting "Vandalism" Edit

I've noticed that you have been undoing several of my edits to streamline some of the newer NM pages. If you look at a page like Yilbegan you see a mess of drops each with 1/x number of times the NM has been fought. The reason would be because the synthesis materials and temporary items they drop are random. I have killed NMs like Nahn and Indrik more times than I can count, and each time, I have seen a different synthesis material or temp item. For the sake of organization and expediency, non-standard drops for NMs should not be listed separately. One shouldn't mislead players into thinking items like Coral Fragments are standard drops for the NM.

Additionally, on the Indrik page, you reverted my edit to 80/80 drop rate on Healing Mist, which is both not true (it does not drop Healing Mist 100%, you can check for yourself) and a previous edit that I had to undo for vandalism because the original poster was computing expected drop rates based on a much smaller number of kills (e.g. 4 kills x20 each to display a drop rate percentage on the page). --Eremes 00:35, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

  • In case you hadn't noticed it yet, admins have also begun to revert your 'stuffing'. You replaced drops with useless information. And on a wide scale too. That's vandalism. Noone is going to camp those NMs for specific drops, but that doesn't mean they don't drop. There might very well be a system to the crafting item drops, but you destroyed all the data. And in reverting your vandalism, some less accurate information might have been put back. That's all on your plate. --Seedling 11:24, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

The founders and administrators of FFXIclopedia and Eorzeapedia, together with the podcast gurus over at Pet Food Alpha, Limit Break Radio and the Aetheryte Radio Network - are excited to announce their newest project - Gamer Escape draws upon, and expands on, our collective experiences. We're combining the wiki platforms where you can get your information, podcasting platforms where you can listen to your favorite podcasting personalities, wordpress/news platform so you can quickly see what is going on with your favorite game, and of course, forums to allow you to discuss everything game related with the community.

What does that mean for FFXIclopedia?

We've copied the FFXIclopedia wiki content over to Gamerescape in order to seed and expand upon the wiki over there. FFXIclopedia will, of course, remain at Wikia and remain open and available for editing. To be clear, while there have been a few rather public departures from Wikia in the past few months, they are not a factor in our decision. The reality is that Wikia provides a great service for wikis and was a fine home for the past few years. They allow anyone with one click to try their hand at starting a wiki and a community. That is invaluable and, looking at Wikia's growth, has served them well. In light of some the recent public departures, we feel it was important to make this clear.

We are making this announcement because (i) we are truly excited about what we're launching; and (ii) you, the community, should know that the founders and some of the current admins and moderators will not be here, but will be developing the FFXI wiki/forums over at gamerescape.

What else is over at Gamerescape?

In addition to the content from the FFXIclopedia wiki, we have integrated Eorzeapedia - so all of your FFXI and FFXIV information is on the same site, just a click or two away. Also, in addition to FFXI and FFXIV, we've launched WakfuEscape, a platform dedicated to the upcoming Wakfu MMO (distributed by Square Enix). Complete with news platforms, forums and podcasts - we're continuing in our efforts to provide a site where you can get all of your gaming information without having to jump from site to site.

We've learned a lot since 2004 when we started FFXIclopedia, a lot of which is reflected in our new FFXIV and Wakfu wikis. We remain nothing more than a group of gamers at heart who enjoy playing games and helping the community develop a resource for those games. We're looking forward to continuing that effort over at We hope to see all of you there.

PS. For those that have an account - your log-in credentials should work at any site.
