Link in Main Page

A long time ago I realized that there are no more links on the main page for the related pages. For example: there is no link to the pictlogica cards page but there is a link. If you want help with this I'm here to help. Sorry, my english is using google translate to communicate

Page with broken links

Hello there, why is all mages ability card like aero, bizzaga, fira etc is on pages with broken links category?. I do not see any broken links there. AD2701LY (talk) 14:50, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Rarity ★3 vs 3★

The game always puts the star before the rarity number: http://imgur.com/a/5lfDA Shouldn't the wiki also do so? --BryghtShadow (talk) 10:20, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Sicarius pages

Currently, all 3 difficulties are single Sicarius battles, but if EN follows suit of JP, eventually dual Sicarius battles (e.g. Hashmal&Ifrit) will happen.

The Sicarius (Ifrit, Shiva, etc) and the quest (Ifrit the Simmering, Shiva the Frozen) should be handled by separate templates and perhaps pages (like cards and fiends). {{infobox sicarius}} should handle the sicarius, and {{infobox quest}} should handle the quest. --BryghtShadow (talk) 14:30, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

User suggestion

The following is from user feedback in a support ticket:

nice database except its only as good as the blind picking method in the game..... everything on all of your lists does not give an explanation of what the card does... i was looking for and explanation before i buy a card since the game doesnt give one till after you buy the card... oh well.... big list someone put work in to and it doesnt help (mobius final fanatsy cards or abilities lists)

-Alianin (talk) 17:54, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

I'm assembling a spreadsheet of spells and their common effects, matched across the elements. ex: single target (Monk) - Fire Fist, Ice Fist, Wind Fist etc. This should be convertible into a new table (maybe on the Table of Abilities page?) once I have it together.
-- As part of that, would it be more useful to keep an entire Job Class together, or to sub-group the Job Classes under the spell effect? Gousha (talk) 05:44, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Skillseed fusion

Hi people, new one here. I did some math about SKILLSEED FUSION RATES but I need someone to help me out create the page since I'm not into setting layouts, tables and stuff. Someone please? Contact me here --Juilian01 (talk) 14:25, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Created Skillseed Fusion Chances. I've done the table for using ability cards. Missing material card fusion rates (the ones that say "Has a high Skillseed Fusion success chance.") --BryghtShadow (talk) 08:52, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll work on it to add all infos I have. --Juilian01 (talk) 18:25, 2 May 2017 (UTC)


How to handle this mixing up different data at the same place

The last days I really got confused by the last edits. I really don't know how to describe this but it seems that the structure this wiki has as base is completely ignored or uneffective. For example:

There are multiple examples for such controversies, so I think we should find a solution how to handle this. Maybe I am wrong with my interpretation of seeing different things there. If we stay with the given structure it will be much work to move all this informations to the right place, but the questions behind this will be:

  • there are multiple users that edit the wrong pages, will they give up if we move and delete all there changes because they do not fit with the given structure
  • if multiple users edit the "wrong" pages is this a sign that they look on the wrong pages based on a wrong given structure?

I usually have no problems with correcting this but I do not want to feel like controlling and dictating all others. But on the other side if there is a given structure I think it should be used... I am really interested in your opinions how to handle such things. Thanks --Lydhia (talk) 12:47, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

Reply

Analysing the examples you gave I could tell the tricking fact is that we have some spells wich add ailments, refering at them with the same name as the common abilities which applies them so we have to make a distinction: (Unguard as example)

  • Unguard ability -> The name of the ability itself is "unguard".
  • Ability with description "Adds Unguard" -> The ability actually applies Ignore Defense, calling it Unguard but nothing to deal with the ability "Unguard".

My solution: keep a pattern to links, something like Card link to -> Ability link to -> Boons/Ailments. Except some unique cases that may appear, never link an ability from another ability. About the the fiend encounters, I'd say keep fiend information in fiend page, encounters are fiends info, so nothing much to discuss. Getting to the point of the speech, I don't think there's a wrong structure, just lazy people which do bad work: the fact itself that are so much people editing the wiki causes confusion. When I started editing here, I just looked at other people works, I couldn't even know how to edit if u remember, but I started with little simple edits, keeping an eye on how things work here. Most people don't do that and just press "Edit" without any concern about what they're doing. My mantra is "Do a good work or just don't do it", and I think everyone should use it as way of life. I guess creating an "Edit Guide" would be a good idea since you can't stop random people from editing, just give 'em tools to do it good. These are my thoughts. Greets --Juilian01 (talk) 23:06, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

I propose making redirects: "Unguard (ailment)" → "Ignore Defense". That way, editors can do this: Adds [[Unguard (ailment)|Unguard]] (nullifies Defense) to main target..
A guide, like "Project:General formatting" perhaps. --BryghtShadow (talk) 09:06, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Ability stat templates

All abilities, if they have an increasing attack or breakpower, follow a pattern: [1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.7, 2.0, 2.3, 2.6, 3.0]. After seeing all those ability stat templates, I thought of making it easier to display the stat for each ability level. And to reduce duplication/repetition.

Behold: Module:Ability stat, which will do most of the work! I think I've gotten most of the automation. Still not too confident on the cooldown formula, e.g. for abilities like Prompto's Piercer. Especially because Crit Chance may be a non-zero value even if it's not shown on the card. e.g. Taunt has a 5% crit chance.

Later on, I would like to have the module handle displaying of ultimate ability stats (follows the above multiplier pattern). --BryghtShadow (talk) 12:21, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Please confirm

  • Can someone please confirm the 6th extra skill for the Fist cards? Only thing I found was on reddit one time named as Marshall Combat and in some other cases Martial Combat, but never saw a vid or pic with a prove and first seems to be google translation, the other was named months before the cards were puplished. So if someone can confirm this or find the right name please move the page and the picture. Thx
  • Second thing that needs to be confirmed is the 2nd extra skill for Balthier & Fran: FFXII (Card) - only found Revenge Burn, but is this right? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by ‎Lydhia (talkcontribs) at 13:31, 17 July 2017 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
--BryghtShadow (talk) 07:49, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
  • sry forgot the sign. thx for the confirmation. While updating the pictures yesterday I search for info about those 2 skills and found nothing official. little bad you made a new page instead of moving the wrong named, but i will declare it for deletion if I will have more time and maybe update the picture. Btw is there anybody who can delete wrong pages? --Lydhia (talk) 08:57, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Another time I need information I can't get by myself. Just mentioned that Ability Batch June I came out of Early Acquisition. So the question is what happened to Ability Batch May II (the Taunt cards)? Can't see if they are fresh in the Ability Shop too, because I own them all. So May I was August 2nd, June I September 5th, so May II August 16th or September 5th or still in Early Aquisition? Never saw a note about them. Thx for help --Lydhia (talk) 23:38, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Companion spirits

After noticing the Spirit Grove page was vastly out of date, I've added in most of the spirits I could find, and reformatted the entire thing to something I hope is better than one long column of tables.

  • Welcome, Gallery view! Do you folks like the look, and is it an improvement?
  • I've formatted galleries for the sections that have pictures, and I've left the ones without pictures in list view. Please add more pics as you see holes... and change those parts over when you do.
  • I know for a certainty not all of the spirits are in there (New Year's promos?). My own collection only goes to March 2017, so please check your own set for ones that aren't listed.
  • I've fudged the terminology a bit -- should we refer to these as Spirits, Spirit Companions, Companion Spirits, or something else?
  • Keeping the list in the Sprit Grove seems odd. This may be better put in a different page. List of companion spirits, perhaps? (see previous name question). What do you think?

Gousha (talk) 05:27, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Perhaps if the page becomes quite big, we can split it into a "table of spirits" and "gallery of spirits"? For now, I think the gallery can stay with the spirit info.
For terminology, I think we can write "Spirits (also known as Companion Spirits) are <description>." Here are some examples of the usage in-game (bold-text only for highlighting in these example):
  • Help > Shop > Spirit Grove: "You may welcome new spirits into the fold by spending Spirit Tickets at the Spirit Grove. If you acquire any Spirit Tickets, visit the grove and find a spirit that suits your tastes."
  • The text below the number of spirit tickets at the bottom of Spirit Grove: "You can befriend a spirit by using 1 Spirit Ticket."
  • The tips when Echo first appears in Chapter 1: "A spirit has joined you on your journey. Find more companion spirits in the Spirit Grove in the Shop menu, and also during special events. Differences between spirits are purely cosmetic, so there is no difference in how they aid you in battle. When you obtain a new spirit, go to Profile in the Social menu to equip it."

Unintended usage of category pages as mainspace articles

Pages in the Category namespace are not meant to become huge articles. Please move the contents to the main namespace and keep category pages short.

--BryghtShadow (talk) 07:06, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Are these examples which categories gone wrong or the only one where it makes sense? Think Category:Cards got really big now too. --Lydhia (talk) 08:21, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Just some examples from the most recent changes. The category page should be for describing what the pages listed on it are. Pages are automatically added so manually making a list on the category page itself is just strange. Imagine the ability card category if it looked like the job page. --BryghtShadow (talk) 10:42, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Ok, can only talk about my changes of Category:Early Acquisition. Someone started it and I continued to add the new batches. Maybe there it will be better to delete the listed cards and only make a table with the batches with release date and date the left early access? should be much smaller then. --Lydhia (talk) 10:49, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
I agree. Category pages should have 2-3 paragraphs at most -- usually only a line or two.
The current content is good. In most cases I think we could easily move it off of that page and into a page of the same name, without the Category label. (ex: Category: Job Cards could move its content directly to Job Cards.) However, we do seem to have a LOT of lists around the site, so perhaps some of these could be consolidated. For example, the Update Schedule page points now to the Events and Category: Card Batches pages, instead of taking current lists itself.

Updating Abilities by Job Type

  • I tried starting to update the page Abilities by Job Type. On the Talk-Page I finished a first try. Please lets discuss about it there, because the tables will become very large very fast. --Lydhia (talk) 14:09, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Scroll card names

Scrolls no longer have "Scroll" in their name. Not sure which update changed this, but noticed while farming Centaur scrolls in the FF13 map. My guess is they gave up with this naming convention given some of the lengthy cards. --BryghtShadow (talk) 16:31, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

  • This happened with the august update. Mentioned it before with User:Juilian01 on my wall. But we cam to no final solution what shpuld happen with it. There was two approaches from me but with no final solution I took the last:
    1. replace the (card) in the page name with (scroll), so both can have the same name
    2. the way it was till then and we will add "Scroll" evry time for our own to get the difference
    Lydhia (talk) 16:37, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm in favour of the (Scroll) idea. The links would look better with Cu Sith (Scroll) vs. Cu Sith Scroll (Card), and would match better with the real title. It also means we can use the straight name instead of re-branding every link.
In order to keep some confusion down, any thought on putting icons on the scrolls in the !Table of Ability Cards?
Gousha (talk) 18:37, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
I guess "Centaur (Scroll)" is fine, as long as all scrolls are cards. "Centaur (Scroll Card)" might also work.
That ability table is huge. I both want icons to make it easier to distinguish, and I also don't want to make that page larger than need be. I am torn :(
Oh and before we make some final decision, can we do "(scroll)" rather than "(Scroll)"? insert future request for renaming all "(Card)" to "(card)". --BryghtShadow (talk) 11:57, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
Can mark this as my next task. so what is the thougth behind using lower-case (scroll)? As I look around its all upper-case till now (Card, Job, Boon, Ability, Ailment ...) Is it a technical thing? --Lydhia (talk) 14:29, 3 October 2017 (UTC)
Technical kind-of, in a sense that MediaWiki is case-sensitive for pagenames (except the very first letter which always gets converted to uppercase). But I think it's more about someone starting the trend, and then it just carried on (i.e. "When in Rome, do as the Romans do"). Perhaps "Because It's A Page Title, I Should Keep It Title Case, Which Also Makes It Easier To Remember", I'm supposing. I'm more used to other wikis (Wikipedia and Guild Wars 2 Wiki) where they go with proper case for general sentences, and exact case for names of things (e.g. "l'Cie Brand"). --BryghtShadow (talk) 07:22, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Done with the movement. I hope I got all. Things done to scroll cards:
    • moved all existing scroll cards to pages like Name (scroll) and fixed all referencing links
    • moved all card images to file names like Scroll_* instead of Card_*_Scroll_* and fixed all referencing links
    • created all missing scroll cards till first Meia Batch scroll cards
    • fixed infos on all scroll pages like:
      • new uniform description
      • acquisition table is now more similar to the table Item Exchange - no more cyclically and sicarius element based things
      • Ability stats tables all use the Ability stats-Module now for only ★3 cards
      • added all of them to Category:Scroll Cards
    • --Lydhia (talk) 12:28, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
  • One thing I mentioned before and saw again now: the cards with the numbers 1290 and 1291 was never released. A user named them in the !Table_of_Ability_Cards as Kujata: FFVII and Afanc scroll. This makes sense with Choco/Mog: FFVII and Stolas scrolls right before, but if I remember right we never get a chance to buy them till now - so I haven't created them right now. Am I right or did I just missed them? --Lydhia (talk) 12:32, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the renaming :D Regarding Afanc+Kujata, I don't remember seeing the scrolls either and I think it's fine to not create those pages until we actually have concrete data. --BryghtShadow (talk) 12:48, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Hey guys, sup? As you can see I'n not around at all lately, the fact is game started to bore me a couple of months ago and I definitely left it last week, not logging anymore. I won't update pages I used to anymore also because I'm attending university and don't have much spare time. Hope I can help with all information I collected but still not updated when I'll have time: still I said I would re-update all scroll images I had and I'll do it (if you guys didn't yet), also other pics and infos I had, otherwise this is a goodbye. o/ Gl Hf --Juilian01 (talk) 13:02, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Aquisition Card Batches

  • As we all know the structure of the summon banners changed with the august update. While adding the info of cards that are not able to be summoned anymore into the batch-templates I found myself asking how to handle this new summon banner structure in the templates? Overwrite the old aquisition tables with the new structure or adding them below? What do you think about this? New banner structure is used in Template:Batch13-1Early and later. --Lydhia (talk) 15:02, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
Some possible solutions:
  • Automatic -- Check the name of the page. If it's in the removed card group, then display that info. If it's not in the group, no change. This requires the least effort on updating cards. Only the template needs to handle this.
  • Manual -- Specifying via template parameter that it's been removed from summon pool. If specified, display that info. This required updating all affected card pages.
<!-- Automatic display example -->
{{#switch: {{PAGENAME}}
| Artemis (Card) | Cait Sith (Card) | Fat Chocobo (Card) | Gigant (Card) | Moogle (Card) = <!-- Still in pool -->
| #default = Removed from card summons on August 2rd, 2017.
}}

--BryghtShadow (talk) 03:46, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Thx for this info, I will have a look on it later, but thats not the thing I meant. I mean the things with the changed banners. Old was something like: 3★ Ability Summon, 4★ Ability Summon and Greater Summon, now (since august) its Card Summon and Boosted Greater Summon. So should we overwrite all old summon banners with the existing ones or terminate them with a date and add the new possibilities below. First will be a short thing with only the actual state while the second will have something like a history effect. --Lydhia (talk) 12:15, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
I think second option of retaining history with current at top and oldest at bottom. If it gets too cluttered, splitting it to current acquisition, and putting the history in separate section. --BryghtShadow (talk) 05:09, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
  • ok, done with switch and history - I hope it will fit so. Changed all occurences from 3★, 4★, 5★ to ★3, ★4, ★5 in all templates too. --Lydhia (talk) 14:54, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

Some general notices

  • I'll be disconnected from the Internet for the entirety of the coming Dahaka Returns event, so it'll be up to you folks to get the event page together. I should be able to touch it up after the fact, but not until mid-November. Event map will be a loss, unless you want to give your own try at screen shot stitching!
  • Front-page items can be updated as we go, without needing access to the front page itself. The calendar automatically shifts each month -- the next one will be November 2017 Calendar. (Thanks to Gametje007 for posting the calendars!) We can copy the current relevant paragraphs from the calendar to the Current Events and Newest Summons pages.
  • Older News Announcements are dropping off of the official news site. They only hold the last 100 or so, which right now accounts for the last 6 months. So if you want to keep those pages for your own records, you'll need to archive them yourself. I have the info saved for most of the missing Events, which I'll fill in to the wiki at some point.

File Upload

  • As of today I am not able to upload images to the wiki. still getting an error from the webserver (413 Request Entity Too Large nginx/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)). Seems they missconfiguered the new webserver or need to change the max size of files able to be uploaded. It still says 8MB and my files are around 1,5MB each. :( --Lydhia (talk) 10:23, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Something seems to be very buggy there at this time. Now back at home I could upload them but after upload it says there is no file but it is. Sometimes he shows the picture sometimes not... I hope they will fix this soon. --Lydhia (talk) 18:46, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
    • Regarding images failing to appear, I've managed to fix HecatonMage5 by purging the cache, and now it's showing the ‎‎940 × 1,280 pixel image. Not sure if fully fixed: testing --BryghtShadow (talk) 07:35, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
    • Tried the same yesterday too with the purging on the image files and the card pages but nothing happened. Good to see that now all 4 card pages seem to work with the images. but I still get "there is no file available" if I check the file for the monk card, but if i look on the card page or in the image category it is there. Really dont know what happened there. I will try again later with 3 other files (bismarck5 and tamamonomae3+4) lets hope that this will work better then. And I will try this from work again, so I can check if I get the webserver issue again or not. --11:56, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
    • Ok tried to upload them and now its a 500 Internal Server Error. This really sucks. For weeks I have connection probs inside the Curse network with this wiki and hoped this will be fixed with the server movement. but 'no' its all the same with much more probs now. I really hope they will find a quick (and good) solution - state of now its impossible to do some serious work here. :( --Lydhia (talk) 12:32, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
