Hello[edit source]

First of all, I would like to say that I appreciate the work you've been doing for the wiki.

As you may or may not have noticed, we've been trying to rely more on community administration. This is a relatively quiet wiki, so most of the administrative tasks are the relatively straightforward things like editing protected pages and periodically cleaning up pages that need to be deleted. Still, an admin does need to be ready to mediate disputes or intervene in edit wars if they should come up, trying to be as lighthanded as you can while still protecting the wiki. Is this something you think you can do, and this something you would be interested in?

Wiki and technical experience are a plus on this, but also not by any means a requirement, since it's more about managing users and page content and not about wiki configuration or making advanced templates. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 15:54, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Sure. I would love to help out however I can. I'm finding working on the wiki is vastly increasing my enjoyment of the game as a whole. - Serpinecoh (talk) 17:52, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Congratulations, then. You been promoted. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 18:10, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Wow! Awesome... Is there any documentation or such on this (like what pages need to be monitored sort of thing)? - Serpinecoh (talk) 18:27, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
We've been working on a help wiki. It's currently targeted more for general editing, but it does have a little on administration (things like deleting and protecting pages). This wiki has Category:Administration that has subcategories with pages marked as needing admin attention, mostly requests for page deletion. But on a wiki like this where the editing volume is reasonably low, keeping an eye on Special:RecentChanges is about 95% of the job.
As a quick note, when it comes to spam, cleaning it up is usually sufficient. Blocking unregistered spammers is usually a waste of time (they rarely spam again from the same IP), and if you do block them, don't do it indefinitely: 1-3 months at most because there's always a chance that IP might get assigned to a legitimate editor in the future. Should a lot of spam appear suddenly, let us know; we might be able to figure out a filter to put a stop to it. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 18:44, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Longsword of Aryvandaar[edit source]

Can you confirm the Longsword of Aryvandaar page. Tooltip name and description seem to be from different item. - Serpinecoh (talk) 20:04, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Fixed! Thanks for the heads up. Snoman321 (talk) 20:18, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Welcome Back[edit source]

I hope life has quieted down for you. -- Two30 (talk) 12:13, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

  • My father died 5 days ago, escrow on my house completes in about a week, and I'll be moving to another state in under a month. So no, not quiet at all. Thanks for the thought though. - Serpinecoh (talk) 21:31, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Translations[edit source]

I would like to start tranlating, but I don't understand, where I must begin. Kantorovich (talk) 16:00, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

I'd recommend asking OOeyes (User talk:OOeyes) about that. - Serpinecoh (talk) 17:10, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
