If you think any article needs work, you can leave me a message here and I'll put a little time to fixing it up. --Darvin 13:11, 24 September 2012 (CDT)

looks good now; keep up the good work -Darvin 03:54, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello Darvin, I see you recently redesigned some pages, for example Tinker Silver, quoting "Fixed page format to more prominently display image", moving the screenshot up within the text and adding the MainNav. I do not question whether these edits are improvements, although I deliberately designed the page the way I did, because 1) I consider the text to be more important (and the map really just secondary), I myself prefer to read dungeon pages without the map "intruding" into the text; and 2) I though the logic was, include MainNav only on those pages that have their mention on the MainNav itself - all other pages should just link back to the main page mentioned on the MainNav. So Dungeons, each having their own entry, should include MainNav; but only the Class Challenges page (directly referenced in MainNav) should have the MainNav, the individual subpages shouldn't. What do you think about these? Is there any accepted convention governing these? Tinker 08:58, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

I didn't add the MainNav to these pages; that was there before my edits. Whether you want to keep it on this page is up to you; you're right that these pages aren't strictly associated with MainNav, but on the other hand they are very similar to dungeons so keeping a similar formatting may make sense. I'm fine with either way so long as we're being consistent, placing it on every class challenge page or none of them. As for the map, by using the "frame" formatting the text and image appear side-by-side. The idea is to have both the text and visual descriptions of the dungeon side-by-side and prominently displayed at the top of the page. In addition, this makes better vertical use of space on the page. --Darvin 16:14, 29 October 2014 (UTC)


Hi Darvin

Can I ask your help in updating the image of the Thief Gold Challenge? I uploaded a newer, edited version, but no matter what I do, the page shows the older one as if I reuploaded the same thing without changing it. -Astral

Nvm, the issue seems to have fixed itself. Do we need to wait some time (in this case a day) after updating an image to see the result?

It's probably that your browser is caching the image. --Darvin 17:23, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Lujo:

Darvin, you've worked on Wiki's before, how difficult is it to make one from scratch? I got half a mind to put togather one of my own. I've got very limited coding experience, though.

I've never set up a wiki personally, but there shouldn't be any coding involved. MediaWiki is free and open source, so you just need to install that on your web server and get it configured properly. --Darvin 07:26, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
