ItemT changes

Please notice icon= syntax for Template:ItemT is deprecated. This was dropped when ItemT was converted to use Template:Item_icon. See docs for details. Arindor (talk) 09:43, 3 May 2017 (CDT)

I have to admit, I completely missed that change (which I really like). Thank you for both implementing it, and pointing it out. BetaNotus (talk) 18:06, 4 May 2017 (CDT)
You are welcome. I'm glad you liked it! Arindor (talk) 13:24, 5 May 2017 (CDT)
Very handy, is there anything similar for skill icons? I've just been uploading each individually (example: Cloud Sight ) but I'm not really up to speed on anything that happened since last June. Medicus (talk) 14:52, 9 July 2017 (CDT)
Welcome back. Yes, there is such a thing, at least partially. Check Template:Ability_icon BetaNotus (talk) 16:00, 9 July 2017 (CDT)
Thank you, works like a charm. Medicus (talk) 20:08, 9 July 2017 (CDT)

Food transfer

There are lots of articles in the Food category, why move them to Items/Food that is hardly used and not as easy to read? Caleon (talk)

The old categories were added in a mostly failed attempt to self-categorize items that proved to be too great a task at the time,and game updates have provided a better system. Switching category tags on all items is something that needs to happen, and a bot is being written to add them automatically to item pages. I'll do my best to explain, using the Large Strawberry. In-game, and through the available json files, the Large Strawberry is categorized with a number of Keywords. (BrewingFruitA4, BrewingIngredient, Edible, Food, FoodorCookingIngredient, Fruit, Ingredient, InstantSnack, Snack). These keywords, when applied to every item, will allow the wiki to generate very specific lists using dpl that can be tied into NPC purchase lists, favor, or skill pages. For example, an updating list of every item that is an Instant Snack or meal could be created. Marna Loves Rare Recipes. Instead of letting users guess what is a "Rare Recipe", the Small Talk section for Marna will directly link to a list of all items in the Items/RareRecipe category.

missing icon for Red Wing Token

Good morning Beta

in Bartering:Dorimir Fangblade I introduced an item that has a missing icon. Do you know how to fix that ? I think I referenced the item correct. Thanks for your help Jackybah2 (talk) 03:51, 23 September 2018 (EDT)

Good morning. You did reference the item properly, but the wiki has yet to receive an update to Template:Item icon since the latest patch. I'll manually add the , but the rest of the items will wait until the page gets updated by the bot. BetaNotus (talk) 12:36, 23 September 2018 (EDT)

Bartering

What's going on with the Bartering page? I get nothing whatsoever with multiple browsers. Unruly (talk) 11:50, 10 January 2019 (EST)Unruly

There was an issue with the number of pages being transcluded onto the Bartering page. Apparently attempting to include sub-pages from more than fifteen other pages creates some issues. For now, I have replaced the page with a simplified list of NPCs in each zone that barter. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. BetaNotus (talk) 12:22, 10 January 2019 (EST)
