  • Hey ToastTheKnowing! Not sure if we've been introduced yet, but I'm Technobliterator, the Fandom Wiki Manager here (I introduced myself to Haldarn a while back). Just popping in to check how the wiki is going? I've been checking the RecentChanges here and there, but not seen a need to intervene thus far, but as usual, let me know if you need anything!

  • Why do you change that many sites i edited? Is jpg that wrong? Noone cared for the sites until i added pics and informations. This goes for weeks and months now.

    • Hi! thanks for writing.

      Almost all of the images I have been replacing are done so by one or more of the following criteria: 1. The image is of equipment that is out of date, missing jobs from the Seekers of Adoulin expansion. 2. The image is not uniformly cropped, clipping the outer boundary of the game's infobox or containing visible background imagery from the screenshot. 3. The image does not use an opaque window background. 4. The image is watermarked or otherwise clearly originated from a 3rd party site without attribution.

      I have not explicitly been targeting your contributions. If there was a change you feel was done in error let me know and I can revert it.

      The jpg-pictures i made were cut by paint after i switched to a non-transperant background ingame and screenshotting it myself with hardcopy. I tried to make it as legal as possible by adding the data-info. All of them were taken, while i did the quests at the time of the upload. I choosed jpg cause it took less bites. It made sense to change the name of the trial as picture-name into the itemname with it's current level on the picture. But to me it looked like exactly the same picture got placed, just with another namecode in the editpage and png instead of jpg. Made me ask myself why i did the work. That's all.
      When it tried to use the "[[..."-command to add the item name with the wiki-automatism like Gungnir (80) what actually works, I thought to have to make my own pics. Because i didn't find a data. And i tried the png-ending also. FFXIclopedia should show more already exiting pages, when you use this.

    • As far as Gungnir (80) goes, the picture that was originally there was named File:Gun4.jpg, created almost nine years ago. Convention asks that images be named after the item they describe without abbreviation and 'Gun4.jpg' was deemed too ambiguous. I capped the replacement myself and saved it as Gungnir (80), PNG as I find that format easier to work with, and replaced all instances of File:Gun4.jpg with the new image, then removed Gun4.jpg once it was no longer used on any pages. Unfortunately wiki does not make it possible to preserve the file history of a .jpeg replaced by a .png as there is no way to modify the reported MIME type of an uploaded image page. The only replacement strategy that works is what I have just described.

      I apologize if this makes your efforts feel futile. Understand that my goals here are to update as many item pages as possible so that they can be reliably included in modern templates being developed that make the site more mobile-friendly as well as use modern features on the desktop browser version of the site. This often includes replacing images to meet this wiki's media naming and image policies, both decisions intended to make it easier for active wiki editors to make more changes down the road.

  • The site's naming conventions are such that:

    Sheet of Adoulinian tunes is the Key Item.

    Adoulinian Tunes is the inventory item.

    Key items are capitalized as per their their title. Inventory items are capitalized as per how they appear in the inventory (with all contractions expanded).

    That means the prior setup was correct; just wanted to clarify before I reverted.

  • In case you might find it useful to save some time, Admins can use Special:MultipleUpload to upload up to 20 images at once.

  • I've given you Sysop rights, so you can delete/move/rename articles as you see fit. Obviously in such cases the priority is maintaining an article's history, so move/rename is preferable to creating a new article and deleting an incorrectly titled one.

    Karuberu has also recently mentioned that in some cases it may well be worth keeping outdated item images for the historical record.

    You should have access to .css / .js too, in the case you wanted to do something with mobile appearance.

    The Discord channel is up to 197 members, which makes it a good place for discussion and feedback if you need it. The general conversation is pretty much perpetual, but we have a dedicated wiki-editing channel too.

  • Sorry for ignoring your Discussions post on this. Didn't realise there had been posts over there! :O

    For some reason I can't reply to your post there either, but just wanted to say; nice work on the navbox!

  • Just letting all of the regular contributors here at ffxiclopedia know. I'm livid, but we don't have any recourse.
