Just for reference[edit]

Could you elaborate on these red links: [1], [2], [3]? Considering how you and Konig were fountains of lore-related content on the wiki, I want to assume good faith on it, but forgive my reservations when watching red links appear over a decade after Nightfall was released. - Infinite - talk 20:53, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

That's fine - those are actually from Konig's user page; they originally come from the gw.dat. They should have been added about a decade ago but I guess people have a bit of an aversion to redlinks (big mistake imo, because then these things go undocumented for, well, a decade). The original GWO thread that they come from is gone now, but there's a copy of at least some of the stuff here. --Santax (talk · contribs) 09:56, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
If those cited descriptions are also found in the .dat file, we may as well turn those red links into actual (mini-)articles. There is the .dat file template for unimplemented content we can alter slightly for listing content that is not specifically named in the game. It would indeed be a shame to never add such content to the wiki. - Infinite - talk 10:42, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
