Merge Item grinding guides[edit]

We have several guides on how to get items. The problem is that all of them are in a different state of being current.

Lab stuff[edit]

  • Double-check whether these checks really are not reduced by Research Preparations
  • catalogue missing description texts for experts
  • write a new lab portion of money making guide, particularly for night whispers, Infernal sharpshooters, impossible theorems

Write Second chances grinding guide[edit]

User:RagCall/Second Chances (Guide)

  • write intro
    • what are second chances
    • when would you want to use them
  • collect info on CS


Expand Parabola Guide[edit]

    • Bessemer Steel Ingot
    • Raising Artisan of Red Science Studies (Experiments can only be started here)

Template/category/property maintenance tasks[edit]

data types[edit]

A Record can consist of

  • a tuple of data types, eg "(Page, Number)"
  • a tuple of a property "(Modifies with, Modifies by)", where a property has a simple data type like Page or Number
  • a combination of the two "(Page, Modifies by)"

However, what does not work is creating, e.g. a Property:Quality, which itself has Type:Page, and then going "my record has fields Modifies with, modifies by" and "Modifies with has type Quality". Is there any way around this?

  • check if there are uses of Template:Item Gain that should be uses of Template:Gain (less likely)
  • make sure all instances of Category:An Estimable Trophy Gain use the correct cap parameter (at least Offer your defensive escort used to not support the parameter)
  • reconsider the way we currently implement caps to deal with An Estimable Trophy, Masquing, etc

other stuff[edit]

  • possibly introduce a Template:Disambig2 for "you may have been looking for..." kind of disambig, see Cultured Attache(e)
  • create category: lab articles with uncertain formulas
  • create category: site maintenance>"unknown modification" in Template:ModifiedBy
  • create a CSS for parser function #info tooltip which isn't quite so terrible on the eyes, or Template:Tooltip
  • check spelling in long categories that should be guides
  • Make a tool that supports you in trimming, e.g. via preview or something? tried sth similar in Special:Diff/552633, but I actually need a textarea, not a text input

categories with a lot of text[edit]


Done[edit]
