I believe they were playing around with it, from suggestions on the BG forum. Nothing special seems to have happened yet. If something does though, I'll be sure to report it. ^^ --[[User:Anjiru|Anjiru]] 09:01, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Great job on the ??? items. Look forward to seeing them all with the new layout. --Gahoo 17:27, 2 February 2007 (EST)

Agreed, looks amazing--Zagex 00:32, 3 February 2007 (EST)

Thanks! I always got annoyed that you couldn't get from one ??? Axe (for example) to all the other ??? Axes easily. Or see all the Assaults that dropped a particular type of ??? Item. This should close that gap. --Divisortheory 00:34, 3 February 2007 (EST)

Re: New User Guide

(copied from response on Talk page)

Um ... because it is Nynaeve's Guide for New Members, and it's on her member's page. --Mierin 18:56, 21 February 2007 (EST)

To clarify, it is a personal guide she made, not an official FFXIclopedia guide. If you like, you can create an all purpose guide that anyone can edit. There are many different existing sources you can pull info from; most of them are on your Welcome Message. If it's up to snuff (as discussed by all the admins in our private forum), we can approve it to be moved to FFXIclopedia namespace (i.e. make it the official site guide). --Chrisjander 22:47, 21 February 2007 (EST)

Protected Pages

Nynaeve's guide was unprotected at her request. You can have your guide protected if you request it. However, be aware that if you do this, you will be unable to edit your guide unless it is unprotected. Needless to say, we admins will be very annoyed if someone (anyone, not singling you out) requested Protection for their page, and then Unprotection every time they wanted to edit it. We would be more than happy to protect it at your request if it is a final product. Also be aware that just because a guide is "protected" doesn't mean it's copyrighted in any way. It still falls under the GNU Free Documentation License, just like any information here that does not actually have copyrights. It will just be uneditable by any non-admins (including you). --Chrisjander 22:23, 21 February 2007 (EST)

I think I used one too many double negatives. A protected page can only be edited by admins, and not even the original author can touch it (unless he is also an admin). Named guides (XXX Guide by <Username>) can be protected upon request; it just doesn't get requested often. Hope I wrote that right this time... <feels silly> --Chrisjander 22:42, 21 February 2007 (EST)

As Chris said above, that particular guide was a subpage of a members page. To be perfectly honest, I don't know why that guide or the WHM guide was protected, but I'm not going to question actions of other administrators unless they do something patently wrong. I won't protect any of my guides. In general, though, it is highly frowned upon to edit someone else's guide for anything other than simple spelling or grammatical changes. If it is not a personal guide (ie, doesn't have "by XXX" after it), then it is free game. But personal guides contain personal opinions and to edit those opinions would be wrong.

However, this goes past your original question and my original answer. You made comments to the fact that you wanted to edit the guide. I was pointing out that it was a personal guide on a personal page. Maybe the protection was unnecessary, but protected or not, you should not be editing the guide. --Mierin 08:49, 22 February 2007 (EST)

And don't forget we have {{Guide}} and {{UserGuide}} to warn people against making such changes. --Gahoo 09:50, 22 February 2007 (EST)


I took care of it. Yes, I think revert is admin only. But other users can always just pull up the prior version, click edit and click save to do the same thing. --Gahoo 18:24, 22 February 2007 (EST)


Your new format looks nice. BTW, I have more details about Arrapago mob layout on my home computer; I will post it on BG when I get home. --Aurikasura 16:31, 2 March 2007 (EST)

Pretty sure there are some inaccuracies with map1 southeast. I'll take detailed notes when I do it again, should be tomorrow. --Aurikasura 04:00, 6 March 2007 (EST)

RE: Skirmish Peph in bhaflau

This information has been drawn as a conclusion from my own experiences, as well as discussion with a number of reliable sources who have seen similar occurrences. Between us we have had well over a hundred salvage runs in Bhaflau Remnants, and have yet to see any evidence to prove the contrary. :/

Evidence to the contrary was posted on BG recently now, so we can remove that claim --Aurikasura 15:21, 5 March 2007 (EST)


Just noticed this morning when I woke up, hopefully you aren't the only one. :) --Charitwo 13:38, 7 March 2007 (EST)
