Do you know where File:Balenos borders-0.jpg came from? It looks very accurate, as near as I can tell, and I haven't been able to find any similar maps of other territories. I've been riding through the territories, making a note of where the borders are, but I wouldn't be able to draw a map with that level of detail by hand.
File:QBn3gu8.jpg is very rough and has some inaccuracies. The only problem I can see in File:Balenos borders-0.jpg is that the Sausan Islands are part of Mediah, so the ocean border in the east ought to pass to the west of Beiruwa Island.
That one is one of the two official maps that Pearl Abyss released around the time they announced Kamasylvia. The other one is the same but with the crests of each region above the names.
In the game there are slight differences (the Sausans Islands in Mediah, the border between Serendia and Calpheon and Serendia and Mediah and possibly others. The only colored maps I did were that one and the Serendia one if I remember right.
The rough old one was made before the release of the game when PA didn't know the true extension the territories of the game would have (that's why Mediah has southern Mediah and Serendia and Calpheon extend well beyond their borders in the south) and released some prerelease map images with those borders.
Cool, thanks. I hadn't seen File:Worldmap.jpg. I had been planning to draw up a territory map, but that map is better than what I'd be able to do. Hopefully, they'll release a new map with Drieghan eventually.
I am a bit confused at the moment. Each time I look at my knowledge screen in game after gaining new knowledge, the values for the knowledge entries I have already created on the wiki have changed, along with their effects. Do you know if interest level and favor fluctuates according to what other knowledge you have?
One last thing to note is that the Interest Level of the NPC can change between conversations. This is usually a small range such as having an Interest Level of 31 one conversation and Interest Level 34 the next conservation. It is a very small RNG factor. Interest Level of the Knowledge remains the same.
That is what is peculiar, the Interest Level and Favor also changes for the Knowledge for me. Maybe they have done the same for Knowledge. It might be best to remove Interest Level, Favor and effect from the Knowledge entries now that they aren't fixed values.
I had no idea there were that many wanted pages. I can understand why the wiki is struggling with showing them.
The most recent quests I have added have linked to at least two wanted pages, so I think I am currently adding more wanted pages to the list than I am creating. Hopefully that will change when I get most of Velia done.
I have been thinking about the quest template. It is a tricky one to make, I am not quite sure exactly how much info should be in the infobox and how much should be text. I am thinking the infobox needs this info at least: Group, region, type, level, previous quest in the chain, next quest in the chain, start npc, end npc, requirements and reward(s).
For the text: Description, walkthrough, (quest text?). Basically, I am leaning very much on the BDOCodex way to organise the info.
People who approached the Bree Tree lost their minds. Explore the Bree Tree Cave under the tree to find out the root of this mysterious power.
An ancient weapon defends where the roots of the tree reach. Hehehe, There's no use in hiding. We’ll find everything and get all the power behind it. You also realize you're getting stronger, right? Let's see the cave under the tree.
(About the text section, the tricky part is that BDOCodex puts all text related to the quest together, and the last 2 parts can be from the end NPC you talk to after completing it.)
Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can be found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wiki!
I was wondering if we should ask to be made admins, so that we can delete posts like the one that was made today, and other things only admins can do (move pages without leaving redirects, delete pages and images that are no longer needed and more)? I don't know if Ms.Major has the power to promote. If not, we can submit a request at http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:Requests.
*Edit* I noticed the navigation bar needs updating, which is also only available to admins.
I thought of that too for a while. I was postponing it because I didn't want to be seen as someone that starts editing a wiki and requests control of the site. I was considering asking for it for you or me or both if someone started to systematically vandalize the pages or down the line when the wiki started growing more and we needed an active admin to alter the navigation bar and deleting images and pages. But after more than a month and all we've done I think we can ask for it.
If both of us ask for it would it be possible or only one? Should we contact Ms.Major beforehand?
I had the same thoughts :) It should be possible for both of us to become admin, the one that makes the request just needs to mention the other. Yes, we need to ask Ms.Major if she has anything against us becoming admins. I can make the request if she is alright with it.
Actually, since there is no active bureaucrat (owner) of the wiki, one of us can apply for that instead of normal admin rights. Are you interested, or would you rather I applied for the position of owner?
Considering the amount of daily edits we usually make I don't think that'll be a problem. Today I'll try to take the screenshots of the Serendia nodes that remain without one and I'll start the Mediah ones.
Didn't read the latest message. Seeing as how you know the inner workings of a wiki better than I do I suggest you apply for it.
