Abilities infobox

When adding it, can I ask you to make certain entries in it links? You can have a look at [Blink] or [Slam] to see what I mean. Thanks for contributing!--Sky (t · c · w) 23:02, 10 April 2007 (EDT)

Cool. Make sure to use {{Infobox ability}} for spells/abilities/talented abilities and {{Infobox talent}} for other talents. Again, my thanks (I was just starting on some of the Mage spells; I've done Blink and Blizzard, also having cleaned up the redundant information).--Sky (t · c · w) 23:12, 10 April 2007 (EDT)


I think I'm going to add a "Related Buff" section to the abilities infobox. It's a little silly to have that other template on the page, and screens with smaller resolutions just don't work with it. I haven't got the time atm, just wanted to warn you for my plans. :) --Sky (t · c · w) 18:57, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Slight tweakage to User:Piumosso-Uldum/Sandbox2. It would be nice to have the icon also included in it, as well. If you can, try and get it into {{infobox ability}}, rather than it being in a different template. Do you think you have the know-how? --Sky (t · c · w) 03:19, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
Hmm... I'll give you my thoughts when I can think a little straighter. Smiley.gif. Actually, add in for the #switch for the other types of magic (curses, disease, poison, and typeless, for which you should see the bottom of Magic (Dispel Type)). --Sky (t · c · w) 00:34, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Awesome. It might be wise to make the whole talents section optional, as there are certain spells which -aren't- improved ( [Invisibility] comes to mind). That, and the |race= section should be optional; that's really only there in the case that your ability is a Priest ability, or just another generic ability that is race specific (such as [Shadowmeld]). Other than that, cool beans. Oh yes: Might want to have a look at the bottom of Sandbox1. ;P --Sky (t · c · w) 01:00, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Added: The buff icon doesn't look so hot where it's placed ;(. We need to sort that out. --Sky (t · c · w) 01:03, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Added2: |req= should also be optional. --Sky (t · c · w) 01:06, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

I thin that might be it from me. I'll have a look tomorrow. Maybe. :o. Personally, I love how the tooltip for the buff floats. Maybe make it a little wider? :) --Sky (t · c · w) 01:28, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

Aye. However, we change them now, we only have to go through 20 some edits. Decide to change it later... --Sky (t · c · w) 00:32, 9 May 2007 (EDT)


I've tweaked it a tad; don't worry about going back and changing all the pages you've already done. --Sky (t · c · w) 06:58, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

In a related change, I tweaked {{Infobox ability}}; it now has a radius command for ranged AoE spells. It could also be used for PBAoEs, where |range = "Self" and |radius = x yds. I'm not real sure about usage in such a way, but I was wondering about your thoughts, as you're the one who is using it the most. --Sky (t · c · w) 21:31, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

updating abilities/talents

can you work on updating abilities first? :). i want to fix up a talents boilerplate.

You should also note that you can change the width of the ranks table on the pages by going to the "width=xem" part and changing the number (see here). I would suggest doing this so that the table headers aren't on 2 lines. :) --Sky (t · c · w) 00:26, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

ack! you used the talents infobox for [Cone of Cold] instead of Template:Infobox ability. See Boilerplate:Talent for the updated talents boilerplate.--Sky (t · c · w) 00:18, 20 April 2007 (EDT)
PS Yes, this does mean you can update abilities or talents in whichever order you want. :)

Oops. Silly me. I'm on crack. --Sky (t · c · w) 00:21, 20 April 2007 (EDT)


Was that this last patch, or an earlier one? --Sky (t · c · w) 05:02, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Tooltip Buff Template

Hello there! I had actually created separate templates for all the various types of debuffs and buffs (Template:Tooltip Buff, Template:Tooltip CurseDebuff, Template:Tooltip Debuff, Template:Tooltip DiseaseDebuff, Template:Tooltip MagicBuff, Template:Tooltip MagicDebuff, Template:Tooltip PoisonDebuff) which would correctly categorize each buff/debuff by type.

I do prefer your template, however, but I think it could be improved by determining if it is a buff or debuff. This would allow

  1. The buffs/debuffs to be categorized correctly. When using your template with the ability template, everything is

categorized as <Type> Debuffs, which is incorrect.

  1. Perhaps colouring the border of the debuffs (Blue=Magic, Green=Poison, Purple=Curse, Brown=Disease, Red=Typeless) to match those in-game. It's a small thing but I find it adds alot to connect the WW to the game like that. I already have the colours figured out in my older templates.

Let me know what you think! I'd be more than happy to make the changes, but I consider it polite to at least bring it up with the original author first ;) Cheers. -- TUSVA ~ T | C 12:47, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Uh... {{infobox talent}}... what talents cause a buff that aren't also abilities? --Sky (t · c · w) 18:22, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Ah. Ignite. That's a rare one. --Sky (t · c · w) 18:26, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
Ignite, Winter's Chill, Improved Scorch, Blazing Speed, Arcane Concentration, pretty much any talent that procs. --Piu (?!) 19:35, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

bot troubleshooting

I'm setting up pywikipedia, and I'm getting an error when trying to use Did you by chance run into errors on line 601 and 483? --Sky (t | c | w) 10:13, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

I had no errors in that script - I had some errors only in I did have to update to the latest Python though, make sure you have a recent version. --Piu (?!) 23:11, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
Just installed it last night. They also released a new version of the bot 3 days ago, so I might have to look into using the old script or possibly bug them on #pywikipedia. Thanks either way. --Sky (t | c | w) 23:14, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
