updating pics[edit]

Nice work on those updated weapon skins. Ty Justice (talk) 06:23, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

You're welcome, and more to come :) —Scribeton (talk) 12:04, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Adding weapons to foe drops.[edit]

there's no need to add normal random drops to things like on Hanchor Trueblade. The boss pages just show trophies, salvageables, and, their unique. Its a policy if everything possible was listed just think how long those lists would be. Those bows drop from many vabbian foes/chests. https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Guild_Wars_Wiki:Formatting/NPCs#Items_dropped Durp da durp (talk) 09:16, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

I didn't know, thanks, I'll keep in mind for a future. I see that the edit has already been undone, solved then. —Scribeton (talk) 12:47, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Similar to npcs[edit]

Weapons don't get specific foes if everything drops the skin. Elonian Blade drops everywhere in Elona from nearly everything. Some stuff like the ancient weapons only drop from desolation wildlife supposedly, but not from awakened, that's why they are noted as they are. If someone finds them dropping more places they would have the new foe family added. If enough new drops occur it would just be 'desolation, random drop'. Exceptions to the rule are things like Magmas Shield which is only titans, or, the os IDS from ice imps in mineral springs. https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Guild_Wars_Wiki:Formatting/Weapons Oh, I like some of your weapon renders btw. If you chest run in nf, one project that would be maybe useful too is adding if locked chests drop skins missing them as a source. Not sure if 'random drop' includes chests, but many things like the ancient weapons don't specify chests, but, other weapons do. Just an idea if you get bored.

Annotated, and thank you. Regarding the chests, I have a stack of lockpicks pending to use between Vabbi and The Desolation desert (I have to replace some of my Q10-11's with Q9's), so yes, if I find something missing from inside the chests I will edit the pages. The uncommon/purple Ancient Daggers dropped from a Locked Chest in Joko's Domain for example, but I don't remember the others. —Scribeton (talk) 02:08, 7 December 2020 (UTC)

Current bug with uploading images[edit]

HOW DARE YOU overwrite my beautiful tooltip screenshot??

Okay all joking aside, there's currently a bug preventing images from displaying their most recent version immediately; it seems like the cache is getting stuck on an old version. So don't get concerned if your new version doesn't appear right away; it should appear sometime in the next 48-256 hours, whenever the wiki decides to update it. horrible | contribs 22:07, 14 April 2021 (UTC)

Apologies XDDDD you already know that I'm currently updating the wiki with HD pictures and screenshots of green item descriptions, so I wanted to put this one before storing the sword on my mule character. Regarding the cache, yes, I noticed the problem, previously I only had to clear the cache of my browser after each upload, and then refresh the article page itself to see the new preview. I assumed that the problem was due to recent maintenance of the wiki, so no problem. I see the picture has been replaced with an {item info} description, so it's fine, don't worry. —Scribeton (talk) 00:40, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
