    Update to Runes/Abilities

    September 14, 2013 by XiapeX

    I mentioned recently I was going to try and replace conditions (and eventually abilities) mentioned in ability descriptions with links rather than the parenthesized versions. I now have that functionality in the update script. See Majestic and Charm for an example.

    In addition, the artist issue (which Shimaru raised) was fixed a while ago, and the table in stats/rune info has been shrunk so it fits to the side the image. You can see how it looks at Bag of Filth

    Are there any more suggestions for changing these templates?

    One long-term plan I have is to (automatically) add links into abilities to simplify the text, since links are possible on the wiki.

    For example, the rule text for Awestruck reads "Opposing champions adjacent to this unit are Awestruck (This unit has its DMG reduced by 50% and -1 SPD" and would instead read "Opposing champions adjacent to this unit are Awestruck"

    I have some ideas about how to implement this, but any comments or suggestions are welcome.

    Using Categories for Lists

    August 22, 2013 by XiapeX

    Wiki structure allows players to create categories; then the page for that category has all the pages that belong to that category.This means Category:Abilities, and other general lists can be given their own page. If you want to create a new list, you can simply add a category to several pages, such as with Loss of Life

    Note that categories like Abilities and Runes are added automatically by the bot script, and thus these category pages will be kept up to date. However, other lists will require constant updating in order to be correct.

    Pages requiring updates

    August 22, 2013 by XiapeX

    Adding a date can help remove the need to update obsolete information. For example, saying "There are 50 Draksar champions", "The Doctor is an autoinclude rune", or "The most recent expansion is Drums of War" may be true at a specific point in time, but will likely change as time passes.

    A bot script is able to update Runes and Abilities automatically to process rune and ability updates, but doesn't update comments or other pages.

    How the bot updates pages

    August 22, 2013 by XiapeX

    Pages will be updated by a bot when an update script is run. This will remove any edits made in the Stats section and replace it with the updated Stats section. (This includes code or categories added in this section.)

    Stats are taken directly from the XML feed, but if any content in the Stats section is incorrect, please let me know at [[Message_Wall:XiapeX]]. (For example, currently the XML feed only lists one faction for split faction champions.) Any changes made to incomplete abilities will simply be overwritten.
