Achievement pages

Just wanted to say thanks for the great work on those pages! :-) PeterWind (talk) 12:48, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

No problem. Turned into a much bigger job that I anticipated but getting there now :)Dragnog (talk) 13:12, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
Sure is a lot of work! Xporc (talk) 23:06, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

Hey, just wanted to give you a heads up about some achievement article names would have to be disambig, like  [Fracture Chambers] while Fracture Chambers would be about the actual layer in Torghast. Thanks and nice work on the achievements! Surafbrov (talk) 14:20, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Ah yes that makes sense. I will be more careful thanks :) Dragnog (talk) 14:25, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Pages

Heya, great work on the item pages! But, please, take a second to look at it and make sure there's a dot at the end of the sentence :-D (and correct verb and correct link to encounter page if need be) --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 19:18, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

The full stop error is fixed now. I will keep a closer eye on the other wording (It is mostly automated but will try and keep a closer eye out for errors)Dragnog (talk) 19:39, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

Heya again, got a question for you (and your bot). Certain pages you created missed a parameter - the type like here. Now I tracked the time for the ones in question in your bot's history, and I wonder if it is possible for the bot to run through selected pages, from 13:24, 27 August 2021  [Unchained Gladiator's Silk Leggings] to 13:40, 27 August 2021  [Sinful Aspirant's Leather Helm], and add the missing parameter? Obviously, I have no problem adding it myself, but if there's a possibility of it... :-D --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 19:27, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for spotting. Should all be added now Dragnog (talk) 19:15, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Heya again! :D I just noticed something regarding item stats. Compare  [Eye-Plucker Grips] and its versions on Wowhead. Your thingy inserted the stats of the rare version, but the version itself remained uncommon. I think that items should have "default" stats here, so, I guess, what Wowhead lists under "Normal version". Maybe I'm wrong about / missing something regarding Wowhead, but could you have a look at the stats / item versions? --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 17:19, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

I'm primarily fetching the data from the official blizzard api, rather than scraping wowhead. https://pastebin.com/xS0cjuuf is an example of what blizzard returns for  [Eye-Plucker Grips].Dragnog (talk) 17:53, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
Ah, okay, gonna trust it then. --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 17:59, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
Once I've finished adding all the missing item pages and updated the profession pages with the new template, I plan to revisit the itemtip boxes stats. For example, we need to squish the stats for most of the older items on the site. We also need to account for the stats of items for classic wow and current wow simultaneously. As you said above, there can be different versions of the items too (uncommon,rare,epic)(Raid finder,Normal,Heroic,Mythic), that blizzard may not necessarily have the info for, but wowhead/wowdb does. However once all the pages are in place, it will be a lot easier to automate the update of all the itemtips across the site, once an agreed plan has been decided. Thanks for spotting though. I'm certaintly aware it's not perfect at the moment but it is on my radar to improve in the future :)Dragnog (talk)
Yea, I wanted to make sure, and I see that you have it fully under control, so it is quite a superb work and even greater plans for improvements! --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 18:30, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
