Marking Edits as "minor"

Hi, I noticed you are marking all your edits as minor edits. Please do not do that. Minor edits are for edits that are very small, usually a syntactical change on the page, not adding or changing information. Please unset the preference if it is set in your Preferences to mark all changes as minor. Thanks, Titantalk 20:38, 29 March 2018 (CDT)

Bartender Guinan

Hi, I noticed you fixed a few things on Bartender Guinans page. This is appreciated, however posting about bugs on the wiki using pre formatted boxes in the trivia section is not the proper way to say what you changed. Just leave a message in the summary box below the content box. If it is a bug that was in game, then yes, add it to the trivia section, but under a new bullet point (any bugs fixed on a single day by DB can be contained under 1 bullet). I’m not sure in this instance, so I removed the info. Please re-add if this is the case using the method above. Thanks Titantalk 01:35, 10 April 2018 (CDT)

Item Page Edits

Hey, It would be appreciated if you didn't add {{item|UNKNOWN|#}} to the "craft into" section of the crafting tables. It's not necessary to say, "it might be crafted into something else, maybe." Also, please don't delete any unused parameters for rarities that don't currently exist. DB had added other rarities in the past and it's easier to edit those pages when those parameters are on the page. Thanks.--Siguard (talk) 15:16, 27 April 2018 (CDT)

Hey, will you also not use {{PAGENAME}} on any item pages, it causes issues with the itemX template pages adding Wanted Pages. Thanks, Titantalk 22:12, 27 April 2018 (CDT)

I thought Siguard had addressed it in his comments right above this, but reading it back I see he didn't. It is related to what he said, though: we've been undoing when you collapse the rarity and Craft sections down to one line each. That doesn't really help anything, but makes it harder to read and edit when rarities get added. Middlehead (talk) 22:49, 16 May 2018 (CDT)

Events not increasing on Main Page count or Total Events

I have been added Events to the Calendar & Mega pages for months, & just noticed that Kosst Kejal & events after that are not on the Category:Events Page & are not being counted as Events. I looked through The Isthmian Games 2 (the last Events listed on Category:Events) to see if I missed a flag that would count Kosst Kejal but no dice. If I can add events I'd like to continue doing so, but I can't seem to find what keeps the count going.

You didn't miss anything, you're doing it right. The pages you're editing are more useful than the Category pages anyway, since they're ordered and show more than just the name. The problem with the counter is actually the same problem happening with all Category pages - there's a known bug with the version of MediaWiki the site's on that stops new pages from being added to Category collections. The week between Isthmian 2 and Kosst must be when the bug started here. Titan knows about the problem, but he said it's going to be a long and risky upgrade - as long as the event pages themselves (like Kosst Kejal and The Isthmian Games 2) get the Category:Events tag on them, it should all catch up when he's able to do it.
