Great job adding items and many other updates

You're doing an amazing amount of work. Could you make sure you add stub tags at the top of pages? You should also consider a request for adminship if you think it could help. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 8 Feb 2011 8:14 AM Pacific

Did you know... were nominated to be an admin? Your comments would be appreciated. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Feb 2011 3:24 PM Pacific


While we're waiting on further potential comments from the community about your admin nomination, we were wondering if you'd like to be promoted to a Moderator in the meantime? Raylan13 (talk) 19:14, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Sure it would be nice to have the extra agilities. Servian (talk) 20:10, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
Done! If you have any questions, you can always talk to me or Fandyllic. Raylan13 (talk) 21:12, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
Yay! --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 21 Feb 2011 7:16 PM Pacific

Weapon - Staff categories

Category:World of Warcraft staff items seems more consistent with the other weapon categories. Eventually I will get a bot of some sort running to do the many mass cleanup tasks for categories that we desperately need. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 25 Feb 2011 2:39 PM Pacific

Need a short description for admin page

Looks like you didn't have any wiki enemies ready to bad-mouth your nomination... Winky.gif

We need a short description for you to put in WoWWiki:Administrators. If you think of something, leave it on my talk page or Raylan13's talk page. Or you can just put something in yourself later when you think of something. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 3 Mar 2011 8:40 PM Pacific

Glad to see you like uploading icons

I haven't figured a fast way of doing it yet. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 24 Jul 2011 10:16 AM Pacific

Haven't figured out a way to automate the upload and categorize process which is the most time consuming part for me. Servian (talk) 18:17, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Mists of Pandaria icons

Do you know of any good way to figure out what icons will be new with Mists of Pandaria? I've been looking at the new MoP Talent Calculator and there are a few new ones I've found, but my methodology for figuring out which are new is pretty haphazard. I'll be uploading the few I've found, but some may be just ones we happened to be missing that aren't new. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 20 Feb 2012 1:38 PM Pacific

If they're not in the current data files probably would have to get the testing client for panda. Servian (talk) 22:11, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
Raylan13 would be more likely to get beta or earlier client access than me, but my current strategy was to try to dig them out of the official WoW site. I guess I will continue the random hunt. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 21 Feb 2012 3:09 PM Pacific

Armor changes

Was wondering what the reasoning was behind the most recent changes that were made to pages like the Tol'Vir Hereditary Girdle (aside from durability updates)? The category of "rare mail waist" seems correct and falls in line with other quality armor, like "uncommon mail waist" and so forth. Also, "your" should be kept in the itembox, as it keeps everything standard across all pages, is verbatim what is in the item description, and is easier to leave in when creating pages rather than taking out every time. Raylan13 (talk) 17:29, February 21, 2012 (UTC)

"Your" is such a standard word though and it just adds to extra text being wrapped into 2 lines. I was almost thinking about undoing the sub sub categorization or try to figure out a way to where the categories auto apply to what ever is filled into the infobox. The fact that 90% of the items don't use the real specific categories makes it little out of place.Servian 18:19, February 21, 2012 (UTC)
Tbh, the text wrapping happens in at least half the gear pages I've done over the past year, regardless of whether "your" is included or not. Removing the word is just an extra step when creating pages that isn't really needed. We might try to talk to Fandyllic about the autogenerating categories, as he did something similar with the NPC boxes, at least with NPC/mob levels. I don't know how feasible/easy it would be to do, but anything that would simplify the process is always a great tool.
And thanks for fleshing out the categories and tweaking the newarticletext so that it shows in the new page box. It makes it far easier to help new users if we can just point to that when they create a new page. Raylan13 (talk) 18:34, February 21, 2012 (UTC)
It would be easy to update the {{tooltip}} template to automatically generate categories. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 21 Feb 2012 3:08 PM Pacific
Gonna start testing auto-categorizing with {{tooltip/dev}}. After a bit of testing, I will make a forum post proposing it be turned on site-wide. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 25 Feb 2012 9:51 AM Pacific

Hotfixes Feb 23

Thanks for updating this. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 25 Feb 2012 9:51 AM Pacific


If you haven't done it, try going to Preferences, then set the site dropdown to Other where you would normally set it to Wikia. Hopefully that'll work, otherwise I'll have to trap someone on Monday who's in the office. Let me know! Raylan13 (talk) 01:45, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

I tried that, I even tried setting it to custom and entering in, It a [NullReferenceException in ApiEdit.Login] error msg. Not sure if the whole description is same as what i get in the error msg though. I've tried closing the program and reopening and still get the error msg when ever I try to login to wowwiki
Hmmm. Well, let me try to grab someone this coming week to address this. Raylan13 (talk) 05:45, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

Just got the same error. Realized I hadn't put in the "www" for, and then it worked. Raylan13 (talk) 06:04, March 4, 2012 (UTC)


Done! Also, did including the "www." work for AutoWiki? Raylan13 (talk) 01:18, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

Yea I had to set it to custom then use "", you also might want to check the npcbox template doc= doesn't omit the level category. Servian (talk) 02:30, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

Large ethereal shard icon

Is File:Trade_enchanting_largeetherealshard.png supposed to be blank? --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 13 Apr 2012 9:55 PM Pacific

That file and File:trade enchanting smalletherealshard.png are blank in the data files. Servian (talk) 12:23, April 14, 2012 (UTC)
Ahh, too bad. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 16 Apr 2012 11:25 AM Pacific

These icons seems to be available now:

Lucky Qulen Cub icon

Can you upload Inv quilinpet.png? I'd do it, but you seem to have a system. --Gengar orange 22x22.pngBeware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1 Aug 2012 11:31 AM Pacific

My only system is to upload whats red on WoWWiki:WoW_Icons/Mists_Beta_Icon_List after I recompile the list after each update, which sounds like there another patch because I don't have that icon in the list. You can do it if you want to, I still have to d/l the patch and redo the list. Servian (talk) 03:01, August 2, 2012 (UTC)


Hey Servian, i'm RPT, the newest admin here. I noticed that you seem to be the expert on WoW icons and I have to say it's nice to see you active again! Pacman.pngNomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 03:04, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome aboard, yea I'm not real active but I try to pop in now and then to make sure at least any new icons need added. I haven't figured out any good ways to finding what current icons have been changed though. Servian (talk) 21:09, February 8, 2013 (UTC)
I didn't know blizzard ever changed the current icons. Pacman.pngNomNomNom Macrophager (talk) 22:33, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

Main Page Revamp

Heya Winky.gif I was wondering what you thought of this main page - the slider and/or the layout. I've been looking at our site for some time and thought we might benefit from an overhaul of the main page. I think the above wiki comes closest to what we might need. Raylan13 (talk) 19:39, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

I like it, you can also get some ideas from the Skyrim main page. The rotating photo banner thing seems to be popular in a lot of websites. The tabs might be better then the slider not sure though. Servian (talk) 02:21, October 7, 2013 (UTC)
Got a rough going today (slider), which you can find here. Be sure to read through the notes first Winky.gif I set aside a section for discussing everything. Raylan13 (talk) 23:47, October 8, 2013 (UTC)
