Editing Template:GuideFor[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to give you a heads up that when adding new things in the {{GuideFor}} template in guides, every single page on the wiki within that area or with that unlock have to refresh and add a banner, which both takes server resources and makes a big mess, so if you're not entirely sure what you're doing (and sometimes even then), it's a fast way to make a lot of mess on other, unrelated pages. So a tip is to just avoid that section of the guides until you're confident that you can use it correctly =) Aximillio (talk) 20:20, 4 October 2022 (UTC)

Fair enough. I started messing with it when I went to check the foreign office location page, and thought I discovered a lack of guide on said page. I thought maybe I'd be helpful and write one, only to discover while checking the guides page for advice or a template, that it had one, and just was not linked.

I figured I'd be helpful and make it so, and then decided to see if any other guide wasnt attached to a location it ought to be. Maybe I was a tad liberal with that, so if someone with more experience could then filter through the guides and make sure they're attached properly, that might be for the best.

The Foreign Office one was good, cause that guide is for the whole location, not just an activity that can be done there. I think Asarta undid most of the other ones.
For example, if you use |Location=The Hurlers, it will affect every single storylet and card that's in the Hurlers, and that's not good if there are multiple things to do there =)

Edit: Actually, there's some of the options in the Foreign Office that shouldn't be included as well Aximillio (talk) 22:41, 4 October 2022 (UTC)
