Welcome!!! --Ryon21 (talk) 09:08, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! At least this time I didn't have to ask for one :P --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 09:56, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Stubs

All the new pages you're adding (and thanks for that!) appear to be pretty complete. Do you mind removing the stub tag from your template for those? -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 20:40, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

The quest ones? Ah, I see now, ok. Although I wonder if those supply quests are required to have a profession learned, or are just available without any requirements? Do you know? --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 20:45, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
I THINK - but I'm not 100% positive - that all of the gathering quests can be done by any character, but crafting quests require the profession. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 21:04, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

"Rename me" and similar

Do we really need everything from the database on the wiki? Quests like N [110 - 120] RENAME ME serve no purpose other than cluttering search. They were never intended to go live, players have never seen and will never see them, and outside of a database record, barely exist at all. We're not a database, we're a wiki. --Kaydeethree (talk) 21:19, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

There are lots of stuff from databases already on the wiki in the Removed from beta/alpha categories. Think, it's nice to see some development directions that the texts speak about, and are also included on other pages as trivia. Although the names are indeed silly, some of these entries don't exist on live versions of databases, so, imo, the texts should be transcribed somewhere. --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 21:37, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
I don't think we should be adding empty/tracking quests that consist purely of a quest name, but if there's some substance to them as with these, I don't mind. PeterWind (talk) 23:45, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
The only reason we're aware of these quests at all is because we're looking at database sites. If Wowhead wasn't able to pull unavailable-to-players quests, that are still visible because they didn't get properly deleted, would it actually change anything regarding the lore? --Kaydeethree (talk) 23:50, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
Well, generally speaking I don't think "removed from testing" stuff has too much impact on the lore. I just think it's neat. PeterWind (talk) 01:29, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Warcraft 3

Excuse me, may I know who are you? You aren't an admin, are you? It's about reverting tmmy edits.--Oxlord (talk) 19:13, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Hey, I'm not an admin, but xporc is, and he changed it the first time in this edit. Later, this edit from another admin happened, who also explained the reasoning in the summary. Anyway, the last time I kept the "paladin" there and simply added "(hydromancer)" to reflect the fact that while his class is presented as paladin, the abilities are not paladin ones, but they resemble what might be considered a hydromancer. Wouldn't you say that having "Paladin (hydromancer)" would be a good compromise to resolve the edit warring? --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 19:35, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

"File:" in galleries

In my opinion, there is little point in removing "File:" prefixes from galleries since they're just going to get automatically re-added as soon as someone makes a visual edit (which is bound to happen sooner or later on popular articles). Also, this part on MediaWiki makes a good point:

The File: prefix can be omitted. However, it is helpful to include it as an aid for quickly locating image specifiers in the wikitext (for example, when cleaning up page layout).

Since it makes absolutely no difference in how the page looks on the user end, I've personally stopped removing the prefix since it's just extra work for no gain. If anything, removing it can be slightly detrimental to editing, for the reason cited above. -- IconSmall TrollDeathKnight Male.gif DeludedTroll (talkcontribs) 21:39, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Fair enough, I can take it out of my editing process. --HordeRace bloodelf male.jpg Mordecay (talk) 08:40, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
Yesterday, I've added this note to Wowpedia:Image guidelines so others can hopefully follow through. If Visual Editor didn't cause this issue, I'd be more inclined to omitting the prefixes out to be honest but for now with some users using VE, it is just more of an hassle trying to clean those up when they happen. — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 20:53, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
