Welcome to my talk page!

When I wrote to your talk page, please answer there. I'm watching discussions that I initiated. Messages left here will accordingly also be answered here.

Leave me a message in a new section, please.

catagories for npcs

When making a catagory please make sure it is correct for the npc you are putting it in. If you are not sure just leave the npc in the main catagory creature. From what i know we have no "humanoids" so you cant use that as a valid catagory. Also on the catagory pages please make a valid description of what it is and what should be there. One line is not enough.

Wild animals is not a catagory to every be accepted as an official title by settings, so please do not use that

After each page as been made find any places in the players guide you can link to the pages so they are more widely read --Caarrie 11:42, 29 December 2007 (EST)

Hello, Caarrie. This is work in progress. We decided to split up the contents of Creatures in to separate articles on every being. I wanted to create the articles first, then replace the original article with a listing that would link them all together and make them 'public'.
On the matter of categories I'd very much like input on how to categorize them with sense. I used "Wild Animal" as it was used as a heading of the exisiting list, so I thought that was official, since it had not been changed in quite some time. The Humanoid was indeed a makeshift because I found "malicious characters" which was the heading of that section not expressive and clear enough. I'd really like more input and a general discussion on a proper system of categorizing pages in here. Maybe we could open a separate talk page for this? --Daevaorn 05:04, 30 December 2007 (EST)
PS: I just realized that you and Illori are identical, so just jump over the parts where I explain what you already knew ;-) --Daevaorn 05:12, 30 December 2007 (EST)
PPS: I've read the books on that matter, but "semi-intelligent creature" does not seem a better fitting category title to me, than "humanoid" when dealing whith Derghir and Gobbles who are even quest persons which requires more than semi intelligence in my understanding. --Daevaorn 05:41, 30 December 2007 (EST)
What you can do is make a post on the forum directed towards the settings devs, asking them these type of questions. I think they will be more then willing to answer as well as this will help other players to learn more about the creatures that are ingame. For now if you are not sure, just make one main catagory for all creatures and in time when you get the answers to the questions you can make the additional catagories, but remember i dont want a catagory that has 1 or 2 pages in it, if you see this often happening then just dont make the catagory and mention it on the creatures page. --Caarrie 06:46, 30 December 2007 (EST)
OK, I will try that. Thanks. --Daevaorn 08:31, 30 December 2007 (EST)
you might want to read Selected Beasts of Yliakum Vol. 1 and Vol. 2
--Caarrie 10:43, 30 December 2007 (EST)
according with we will go with one main catagory till we know more. Let me know what pages need to be deleted and we will go from there.
--Caarrie 13:43, 30 December 2007 (EST)
OK, will do that. --Daevaorn 14:24, 30 December 2007 (EST)

crafting guide

Right now there is no format for a crafting guide planned, if you want to start working on one go ahead. You can list what materials are needed and what items but DO NOT list where to find them.

--Caarrie 10:04, 30 December 2007 (EST)

pages for deletion

You can try your ideas for pages needed to be deleted, but do remember right now we dont have a very large wiki and very few sysop's to take a look at the pages and decide if they should be removed --Caarrie 10:05, 30 December 2007 (EST)


What do you think of moving the tutorial walk though here?

--Caarrie 15:02, 5 January 2008 (EST)

I think that's a great idea. Not only because it is much easier to maintain here. It will also bring the wiki to every new player's attention and thus find us new authors. We could use templates to format the dialog exactly as it appears in the PS-Chat. --Daevaorn 04:57, 6 January 2008 (EST)
Then for now as you know how to make templates it is on you, but if you need help let me know. We can always let neko know of updates to it here so he can update it on the forum as needed [major changes]. --Caarrie 07:22, 6 January 2008 (EST)
OK. I'll make this a priority then, the loose ends of the Creatures are not really visible, so they can wait a bit. --Daevaorn 07:33, 6 January 2008 (EST)
if you want to chat more about any ideas for the wiki remember there is #planeshift-wiki on [irc] --Caarrie 07:35, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Re: This edit

Not a problem, I'll try to be on irc:// more often. You seem to be quite familiar with MediaWiki based on your edits. Tuxide 22:31, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Yes, I've been working with it for years "at the source" and in another game documentation project. Though I like the newer versions better ;-) Especially when they have ParserFunctions installed. --Daevaorn 06:06, 7 January 2008 (EST)
Heh...well it's not that hard to get a Wikipedia cloak nowadays, hell even SpigotMap has one. Tuxide 15:15, 7 January 2008 (EST)


I made a couple edits to User:Roobolh and I hope you don't mind. You can do whatever you want cosmetic-wise, but considering it is a bot I think it is a good idea. Tuxide 12:37, 8 January 2008 (EST)

Nothing better than starting a day with a good laugh, thanks. Couldn't you have found me a picture of a red button for that? -
No, I don't mind, though I deem my  Ctrl + C  still the more practical solution.

PS: I hope you like what I did cosmetic-wise *g* --Daevaorn 07:12, 9 January 2008 (EST)


Tria.png Those coins look very nice, but... they're all upside-down. :-)

You can tell because the picture on them is supposed to be a cross-section of Yliakum, showing all the crystal and all the levels. Maanahr 11:14, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Now that you say it, I've only converted the existing pictures from jpg to png, will spin them around now. --Daevaorn 08:57, 10 January 2008 (EST)
Done. Thanks. --Daevaorn 14:57, 10 January 2008 (EST)

Help: tutorial

Is it ok with you if i copy your mediawiki tutorial and use it on another site?

--Caarrie 16:44, 1 January 2009 (EST)

Yes, of course, it's licensed GFDL, maybe mention this page as a source, to comply with the history requirement. That's fine with me. --Daevaorn 05:46, 7 February 2009 (EST)

Task for Roobolh

If Roobolh feels up to it there's a fair few images (30+) in uncategorized files that could do with being put in the category "Klyros Ideograms". The files all start with "KL-" if that helps him... -Ethryn 23:46, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll tend to that, probably manually, as that can be done in two or three minutes. Not worth firing up the bot. --Daevaorn 17:23, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
