Hey, I have noticed there is a lot (and I mean a real LOT) of pages that have under 'artist' a 'category: artist' link, rather than the name directing at the pages. Obviously, said page doesn't exists, and I have spend some time changing it. Then I remembered the whole 'glossary of abilities' page, so I came here.
What is the official stance on this?
It would be better to create a 'category' page and drop the individual pages I have been working, or a bot could be run to change all those Jakub Kasper to merely Jakub Kasper?
I'm not sure there is an official stance on this in particular. The reason for categories is that they would list all the runes by a particular author. However, this makes less sense in this case -- we can change that. Post it on User:Xibot's wall so I have the suggestions all in one place.
In general these sorts of things are flexible, so I can implement suggestions you have. However since any changes you make to Stats will get overwritten when the page is updated, I would have to change how the bot writes up pages. (This includes converting specific words to links.)
In other cases, there is usually a workaround -- for example, if you have a separate page already created for a category, you can transclude it in to the category. For example, see Category:Loss of Life which transcludes the page Loss of Life and click Source Mode.
I realized the bot script knows how many classes a champion has, and so it was fairly easy to just modify the bot script to list all the champions it thinks has more than one class. I am updating them now.
I don't know of any solution that the bot can read automatically, but if I visited the category, I could copy the names of those pages and paste them into the program.
OK -- I thought I had updated the bound abilities and both patch notes. It looks like I had updated from 5/3 -- what specifically did you find not updated? The only thing I noticed was that they created new a few new abilities during that patch, which I updated.
Hey, I was thinking if it could be possible to change one of the squares in the main wiki page to something to include the abilities organized by categories, or a more broad "help with deckbuilding" were we can include the ability category index, example decks and maybe some guide to basic deckbuilding. maybe the "new user info" could be merged with "how can you help" to gain some room.
Also, could you share the tool you use to tabulate the decks?
Sure, I can share the source code but you'll need a Python interpreter to run it. (These are free to download, but it's a big download.) Also, you'll have to enter the deck as a text file, broken down by type.
You can either put a link in the Browse Runes page at http://poxnora.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Runes or make Browse Runes on the front page link to whatever page you have listing the categories and just link to the Runes category from there.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm working on the game guide app for this site. As such, I'm going to be tweaking categories here and there so things show up proper on a mobile device :) Any questions, just send me a shout.
Edit: Don't panic, but I'm moving content on the category pages I run across to their own pages. Ideally that's the way things should be for search purposes as well as functioning properly for the app.
