Revision as of 13:08, 21 June 2012

<-Back to Jlee

Welcome to the Vindictus Wiki!

I'm not so sure we have a "group", but if we do, every editor is a welcome member of it, whether they are correcting a typo or filling in a blank :). --Wynthyst 14:56, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Anyone Wanna Help?

Does anyone wanna help me on ep9.5?


I'm finishing up the dialogue for the new stories, though I heard that the God of the Fomors one isn't fully translated, so there's nothing I can do for that one. I'll add in the Easter stories as well, got them typed up right now. I'll go over the items and stuff later to make sure everything is updated and correct. I noticed Rognik has been adding stuff in too.


When you go to edit pages, there's a "show preview" button beside "save page" button. It'll let you check out any changes you have made before saving it, so you can check for errors or anything you might have missed. That will cut down on some of the editing spam that you have been doing. Every time someone edits a page there's a little notice to admins beside it. That lets us know something has been changed and none of the admins has looked at it yet. When there's been multiple editing sessions done for a single page, we have to look over each one to remove the notice from it. It's just a little bit annoying to have to go through so many unnecessary edits, is all. :P --Masqtalk 02:21, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

You might want to take a look at the Help:Guidelines page to get an idea on the correct formatting of some of the things, such as image consistency. Basically all item/equipment icons should be 40x40. I noticed the ones that you did were some random sizes, and I have fixed them. Items are okay to be in color. Equipment (not including accessories) should be gray-scale or black/white. If you are uploading a brand new icon, you can add the category in the comment section (this only works for brand new pages). It'll likely either be [[Category:Equipment Icons]] or [[Category:Item Icons]]. If it is an existing picture, just edit the page and add the category in if it is missing. The other icon categories are [[Category:Skill Icons]], [[Category:Cash Icons]], [[Category:Battle Icons]] and [[Category:Status Icons]].

Another thing about pictures. When creating an item or equipment page, you only need to put something in the |image= spot if the item name contains characters not allowed in file names, such as : (example: Watchtower: The Witch. The filename for this one used - instead of : because : is not allowed to be in file names.). Otherwise you can leave it blank, and when you upload the file for it the page will automatically link to it. It's just one less thing to worry about (you had a couple of them linking to the wrong pages, oops :) ) If you have any questions about anything, feel free to leave something on my talk page and I'll help you out. --Masqtalk 05:32, 01 April 2012 (UTC)


I'm always happy to help update stuff, but my home comp can't currently handle the client, so I'm periodic in getting new info. You're free to update whatever you have info on, though. As far as story formats, I usually just go to one of the pages already updated, copy over the template, and then change the appropriate parts. Lately, though, I've just been too lazy to do it properly. --Rognik <insert flourish> 05:55, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Re: Enemy Pictures

It's a crop out from a previous image here --Ɛαmes - ταłκ 20:26, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

I used paint.net to crop the background out of the previous picture. You can use whatever image editing software you have/like. I just use paint.net because it's free and has a low memory footprint. Another good program is Gimp. Photoshop is a bit demanding on ram to run it, because it's loaded with features and stuff (that you'll probably never end up using anyway).
I like to crop out the background on the enemy pictures because it looks much nicer with the wiki background. I tend to work on cropping during loading times, when I'm waiting for someone or if I'm bored. It's relatively easy to crop things, though if you want a really neat crop you have to work a little longer on it. I'll be slowly working on updating all of the enemy pictures and getting higher quality pictures to replace the low quality ones as I go along. --Masqtalk 02:41, 06 May 2012 (UTC)
The program itself is called paint.net lol, so the right one. Kind of a strange name for a program, given that websites sometimes use .net instead of .com or other things. Download button is on the right side of that page. The only thing you'll want to be aware of is when saving (like saving a picture in the program), make sure there's no dithering. Dithering lowers the quality and makes little blotchy spots appear (due to the low quality). Once set it'll remember it the next time you go to save something. By default it should be saving files in .png format, which is what you want.--Masqtalk 02:54, 06 May 2012 (UTC)

Uploading

If you look to the left side of the wiki page, at the very bottom of the list there is a title that says Toolbox. Under it is a link that says Upload file. Clicking on that takes you to the upload page, where it'll ask for the source of the file that you want to upload, the destination file name and a summary. For pages that use a specific picture, the file is generally named after the page. Example: The Leather page has leather.png as the item icon picture. The summary portion is where you can leave a note about the picture or input the category it belongs to. Inputting the category in the summary only works if the file is uploaded for the first time.

So lets say you were uploading leather.png for the first time. You could put [[Category:Item Icons]] in the summary box, and when you click to upload the file it'll attach the category and save it. For files that you are uploading a newer version of, the summary box will simply leave your message as a message on the page. You can leave a message to explain the reason for the newer file, such as "higher quality" or "fixing transparency", and so on. In the case of an existing file that does not have a category assigned, you would have to edit the page and add the category in that way. For your equipment images, add [[Category:Equipment Images]] to your summary box when uploading the pictures for the first time.

I think only admins can delete pictures, but you can mark a page for deletion with {{delete}}. It'll flag the page for deletion in its own separate category and one of us can review it.

When editing pages, be sure to use the "Show preview" button to look over the changes you have made without saving first. It'll help prevent the spam editing you have been doing to add in something you've missed the first time around. If you find you still need to make changes, do your edits and then preview again.--Masqtalk 01:17, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Re: Upload Page?

Only admins may delete images. I think this is the uploading page you're looking for, http://www.vindictuswiki.com/wiki/Special:Upload, which can be found on the sidebar under the Toolbox section "Upload file". --Ɛαmes - ταłκ 00:42, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Re: Battle Map

I do not know how to get a dungeon map image. If I did, I would have responded to your question on the talk page. I'm not ignoring you, promise :) Basdeth 19:56, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Stories

I changed Category:Stories to Stories, thanks for the suggestion. --BUMBLE 15:31, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Seal Icons

You can use the original 40x40 icons and just resize them to whatever size needed in your template instead of uploading the same icons but smaller.

[[File:Seal of Bravery.png|20px]] -> Seal of Bravery.png

--Ɛαmes - ταłκ 03:59, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I see it, I just don't know what you're trying to do. Also I'm going to sleep, I'll look up on it in the morning. --Ɛαmes - ταłκ 04:23, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I hope you don't mind me stepping in, I went ahead and got the different currency types in there for you. I replaced the enjoyment parameter with a currency parameter, so just stick |currency=currency type (dedication, enjoyment, etc) and it should work. If you have any questions or concerns let me know. And thanks for noticing this needed doing :) Basdeth 09:20, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
