Signing posts[edit]

Hi Leord: I got your message but I am not sure about the best way to answer to you. In fact, editing this post is the only way I could think of. How do you make sure there is a new message tag that pops up on your account when I send you a message? Anyways, yes I am currently trying to update the prefixes and suffixes data on diabloII wiki. I am not that experienced with Wiki (I work trial and error mostly) but I have been playing Diablo for 5 years so I know the game pretty well now. (unsigned: 08:33, 26 August 2008 Widus)

Cool! Well, take a look at this talk page, this is basically how to do it. Just remember to sign your posts on talk pages, to make it easier to see who posted =) Just make any edit on my talk page, and I'll get a small notification next time I log in to the wiki. To reply, just use ":" in front of the text, like I did here, and make a new headline for new topics. Make new headlines on top. We can keep discussions on one page, instead of flip-flopping here and there, and I assume my talk page will become quite busy, so lots of interesting things will be dealt with here ^^ I must say that you seem to be doing fine, and the prefixes and suffixes are important parts of Diablo, so great Kudos to you! Feel free to come back here and ask me for anything, small or big, I'm here to help =) --Leord 14:37, 26 August 2008 (CEST)
Great. Thanks! Widus (11:51, 28 August 2008)

Question about signatures and Diablo III fact page[edit]

Hello Leord!

Should I sign every page I edit? I understand signing the user pages and so on, but lots of times the edit can be only a small one and I don't want to take credit for it by signing the whole page. Could you clear this one up for me? When should I use signatures?

Also, is there a Diablo III fact page yet? The kind of page which collects all the interesting facts about the game: release date, number of acts, playable character classes, game engine and so on. Not an in-depth article, just a quick "fact sheet" so people won't have to search all those little pieces of information all by themselves across the wiki. As the recent boomtown article tells us there's going to be four acts and confirmes once again that there's five character classes, it might be enough to start such a "fact page", especially when the news are that the barbarian is the only recurring character class. --Mouseman 08:41, 23 August 2008 (CEST)

Hi Mouseman. You should only sign talk page edits. As for any other page, they would be cluttered with signs everywhere, and we're doing this as a communal project, so everyone's edits (that are not vandalism) are welcome and appreciated.
The fact sheet is a great idea, and while we don't have one, I'd post it in the news even if you did something out of the Fact Sheet. I think we have the official sheet laying about, I know Flux mentioned it in the news recently, might be in the articles section... Something to start from, and add to. Probably not that advanced, and the Boomtown article might be some cheat sheet help as well. =) --Leord 14:37, 26 August 2008 (CEST)

Minor Edits?[edit]

Hi Leord,
Question for you: does flagging an edit as minor yield some advantage when dealing with the revision history? What is the threshold for determining whether an edit is a minor change (i.e. is there a convention or is it mostly for typos)?
--Azymn 08:29, 23 August 2008 (CEST)

Good question! We currently do not have a convention for it, and the main reasoning is to be able to hide it in the Recent Changes. So, for right now, please do check it if it's minor, but if you don't, it's no biggie. I'd say that typo changes, or changing a word in a sentence to make it easier to understand is placed as "minor". =) --Leord 14:37, 26 August 2008 (CEST)

Horodric Cube[edit]

Hi Leord. You left a coment on my talk page but I can't recall what changes i made (they are not listed in the page history!). I wrote a Mac OS X editor for D2 characters. And sometimes actually play the game. Is there anything you specifically need help with? Nickshanks 12:00, 17 September 2008 (CEST)

Class and Skill formats[edit]

Hi Leord, good to see you on the liveblog the other day. About the character/skill pages: now that we have a bit more info on characters and skills, I was thinking to rewrite the character screens and skill lists so they're more consistent, and hopefully present the data we have now a little better. I figured I'd wait a few weeks for all the new info to trickle in before doing this, but wanted to run it by you to see if that approach is too drastic or if you (or Flux or Elly) have a strong idea of how you want them laid out. I planned to make some temporary pages for preview purposes. Thoughts?
-- Azymn 05:16, 14 October 2008 (CEST)

That sounds awesome! I know they need reworking, and never be afraid of playing a bit with the wiki. I recommend making test pages on your profile page. Just do it like this: User:Azymn/Barbarian_skills, and we can discuss it there as well. Make sure to poke me, in case I miss the updates in the recent changes page. --Leord 18:07, 14 October 2008 (CEST)


Hi, Leord. You left me a message somehow. I'm still getting used to using this here wikithing. I'm glad you liked my edit in the jewels section. Some of that looked like it was written by a 7-year-old, but I felt like it'd have been too much effort to fix up properly. --Doctorjorts 17:51, 3 October 2008 (CST)

Ok, do you mean it's too much mess to fix at all, or just that it was a bit bad? --Leord 18:18, 14 October 2008 (CEST)

NPCs page linkup and greetings[edit]

Hi again Leord! The NPCs page isn't linked properly in the main page pull-down menu. I don't know how to forward pages so I was wondering if you could do it? So the category:Npcs page should be forwarded to category:NPCs.

I was kind of bummed that you didn't mention me in the main page news when you thanked people's effor on the wiki ;) Did you forget me so soon? :) Well, anyway, I try to polish the NPCs page yet again and do an edit about Adria the witch today. Probably will be inactive after that for a while, though. Keep up the good work!!--Mouseman 09:41, 25 October 2008 (CEST)

Thanks Mouseman! I fixed that, and you can look in the Help:Redirect page for help on how to do that in the future. I'm really more interested in fixing the actual menu links than making redirects, but they are usually good as well, so thanks for being so astute! =)
I blame the wiki for not crediting you, as it only shows some 500 edits max in the recent changes. ;) I only said thanks to the last week or so worth of contribs, but I added you to a "friends" list of mine, so I haven't forgotten about you! You're still one of the best contribs ;)
Even if you don't have time to bring in contributions, try to take the time to check your messages (or mine), and post suggestions and opinions on the Community Portal talk page. Even if you don't personally do big things all the time, it does help others to feel the wiki is alive =) --Leord 11:53, 27 October 2008 (CET)


Hola Leord! How's it going? I hope that everything is well :D

This wiki is very nice/informative and should be the bible for the Diablo series. I'll be checking stuff out and correct spelling/add info or fix stuff...I like to lurk :p I think that this wiki is headed the right way and people are helping out a lot to fill it in. --Shayagor 17:19, 25 October 2008 (CEST)

"Like to lurk" huh? =) I understand if you don't have time to do bigger things, but just crawling around pages and adding your opinions to discussions like the Community Portal, messages here, or on individual pages for pages. It really helps to make the wiki feel more alive, even if you mainly help with the polish, such as spelling and numbers. =) --Leord 12:06, 27 October 2008 (CET)

Tal Rasha[edit]

Leord, thank you for your compliments on my Tal Rasha article. I am new at this so thanks for editing it with links and categories. I appreciate it. I am quite interested in Diablo lore. I will probably do a few more of the pages that the main page of the wiki lists as wanted. Thanks for the help. --Centipede_t 11:18, 10 November 2008

Made the reply on your page, just in case you missed it =) --Leord 17:12, 11 November 2008 (CET)

RE: Diablo Droughts[edit]

Hey Leord, I got your message. It is my first time editing this wiki (I edit various work related ones, but they're much different) so if I did something wrong, or forgot to include something let me know. I did see the editing help page, but it was blank, so I figured I didn't have many constraints to work within. In regards to Diablo Droughts, I was extremely bored while studying so I decided to coin a term for the [frustrating] lack of news we've seen the past couple months. I find myself refreshing about 10-15 times a day :(

Cheers, and thanks for the corrections. --D3nick 22:46, 08 December 2008 (EST)


Hey, yeah that was me that you messaged a few days ago. I'm kind of new to this whole thing, but I've been a big Diablo fan for awhile, and thought I might as well fix a typo while I'm reading stuff on here. :)--Nithix 22:08, 20 December 2008 (CET)

Hey! Moved your comment down, for the chronology =) I also replied on your talk page instead of mine =) --Leord 11:15, 22 December 2008 (CET)


Just skimmed your page and noticed you used external links to everything, like so:

[ Azymn]

You could cut down the size, and remove the blue arrow+box thingy by changing it to


Or, you could leave anything beyond the pipe empty, like so:


Either way, it will produce Azymn, rather than Azymn. --Vipermagi 15:12, 25 December 2008 (CET)

Hehe, indeed, right you are! I just did that as it's easier with copy+paste. In the Hellfire wiki I kept forgetting who came and made smaller contributions, so I don't want to do that same mistake again, that's all. =) If you dislike the external linkies, you're more than free to update my user page for me, but you can probably find lots of things that are more interesting to the community instead. ;)
I'm quite flattered that you were interested enough in the wiki to notice this, keep up the good work, I'll be back with more time on my hands in a little bit more than a week. I have almost never even the possibility to connect here, and everyone here at home wants to see me since I haven't seen them in over a year, many of them...--Leord 14:18, 27 December 2008 (CET)

Username on forum[edit]

I'm actually SlechtWeerBeer on the fora.. :P Saw you had a link to Vipermagi on your page (I have much too little to do >.>" ) --Vipermagi 15:31, 9 January 2009 (CET)

Thanks =) I was sure I had found you! =P So you don't know the other Vipermagi, I take it? --Leord 18:41, 12 January 2009 (CET)
Eh, no, I don't think so. Besides, his latest activity was in 2005 ^^" --Vipermagi 21:57, 13 January 2009 (CET)
True that. You are most perceptive, young padawan! =) --Leord 12:07, 14 January 2009 (CET)

Worldstone article/page[edit]

Hey man! First I want to say thank you for all the little tips and directions you gave me about wiking lately ;). Now, I was looking for the Worldstone article and it says "Temporary Removed" dated by you on november 8. Any chance it will be up and running again soon? I would love to refresh memory on it's story. --Mizantrop 18:25, 16 January 2009 (CET)

Yes, that would be very cool! The situation is that some contribs just copy+pasted material from the Wikia DiabloWiki, and we want the material over here to be original to us, at most copying official text (and then mostly for the manuals etc). In order to update the article with fresh, DiabloWiki-lore, you can go to the "history" section of it, and see the text of the older version. Don't copy+paste it back, but use it for inspiration. Meaning, the facts themselves are ok to use, but you need to use your own language when making the article.
A few other articles have a similar "Temp deleted". The few of us that contrib lore haven't gotten around to adding them yet, but they are sorely needed. --Leord 19:40, 16 January 2009 (CET)
I noticed your need for a Worldstone page, so I decided to create it as my first real article contribution. I added an image for it, also. Hope you like it! --Delowyn 10:27, 24 January 2009 (CET)
Hey man. That's awesome, dude! =) It's a superb start for any Wiki editor, and I only have one thing I think you should look at. Please try to keep links to other pages at a lower count. Lots of different links are good, but you only need one link to a specified page per section of the article. Basically, link only Sanctuary once in the top section, and once in the bottom section. If the page has 5 sections, link up to 5 times to Sanctuary. ;) Same with any link, ofc. Also, good you added the "red" links. It will make them show up here, so people can find what's needed to make. Make sure to check out my home-grown Help section, or just ask me if you have a question. PM or e-mail works fine as well! =) Leord 18:16, 26 January 2009 (CET)


Hey man, just wanted to say I got your wiki message today, and thank you for the tips! Of course I don't mind the updates, bring them anytime. Mi casa es su casa. First time using a wiki and I'm still wrapping my head around the rules. --Delowyn 00:05, 24 January 2009 (CET)

Cool. Basically, the norm is to reply to messages on teh same page it was made, so you reply on your page if I cam to you with questions, and I reply here, if you ask me =) Sometimes it's good to leave a little "poke" on the other person's page, so they get a message from the wiki they got a new "PM". --Leord 18:16, 26 January 2009 (CET)

Contest Links[edit]

Hey Leo, on my wiki page I added two images for contest art that I had done, I was wondering if you or anyone else were going to add the contest pages to the community section. I can build them if needed just wanted to come to you here first. The two pages I have the two images linked in their descriptions are: Swords Fanart Contest and Halloween 2008 Contest the sub-section on my page for them is [Contest Artwork]. Get back with me later or reply to this wiki post when you can ill check the page daily. Thanks --holyknight3000 01:52, 26 January 2009 (CET)

Hey HK. The contest pages are definitely going to be added at one point or another. At the moment, I think lore pages will have my full attention though, so I definitely encourage you to carry it on. I did make contests some time ago, but is not sufficiently updated. Also, if you wish to make specific articles for each contest, just make one like this: contests: Swords Fanart Contest. Or whatever name the contest had. If there was different names mentioned on different places, use your own judgement. =) I'm more than happy to come with pointers and help for making the pages, and don't feel like you need to update the contests. Just leave a link from there to your pages.
The reason for having " contests:" in front of the names is ofc that other fansites might join in to help the wiki, and they can use their own pages for contests ;) --Leord 18:16, 26 January 2009 (CET)

An update for you, you can change the wording if you like but the [Second Chance Readers' Vote Fan Art Contest wasn't really updated so i added the winners and the fact that the contest rewarded 3 books instead and added the text about it anf a link to Flux's post about it on the second page of the post. Let me know what ya think and any ideas for later. Thanks Leo, --holyknight3000 04:18, 28 January 2009 (CET)
Another great update, good one. It's obviously not a major one, but it's good to get your head around the code, so any update is good, and it's actually better to start with the ones that are not of critical importance. Myself or Flux will get around to updating the competitions page further later on. Well, if it's already done by then, that's awesome, so we can dedicate time to other things, such as new articles or larger projects =) --Leord 17:40, 28 January 2009 (CET)
Anythime, just noticed it wasn't updated with links and other things. I'll leave it to you guys there. I'll do what delo does, and help on other websites, since ive helped the community with wallpapers, think ill do my best and help on the wiki as well.
Also this has been eating at me, i wonder if i could make a Fiery Runes Series page, reason im asking is because i can make the page show how the series was built, the changes done to the series, a behind the scenes thing i dunno, i almost made the page 4 times but i restrained myself, thought i'd come talk to the boss over the wiki about it. If not ill add it to my wiki page, either way i think it'll be a nice add to the wiki. Thanks Leo, --holyknight3000 04:40, 29 January 2009 (CET)
This is the Diablo Wiki. Everything related to Diablo, the game, lore and the community will eventually be included! =) Basically, anything you think might be of slight interest is worthy of an article. The only thing you need to think of is naming policy, and structure of the page. It needs to NOT be an advertisement, it's to be informative. I know this isn't a problem with you, but that's the guideline.
So, when making a new article, you need to think ahad a bit, so the name will not clash with future ingame items, quests or the like. Since you are "just" a contrib still (you're more than welcome as a sysop later on, if you have you get time/skill for it), you don't really have to make a great analysis. Just make an article with appropriate name, and if I come along and think that's a name that we might use for something else, I'll just move the page, and leave a redirect. The content is still there, so there is never a reason NOT to make an article if you have the idea, inspiration and time to do so. =) I hope that answered your question...
Yeah, so Fiery Runes Series is an ok name for now, can't think of any reason to have it different. Perhaps we'll make it like Fanart:Fiery Runes Series or so in the future, for coherence with other fan artists. But go with Fiery Runes Series for now, that's cool. --Leord 13:17, 30 January 2009 (CET)
Give me some time to gather all the data, and type it all; out images also, but if you want my honest opinion leo, this stuff should be like you said at the latter Fanart:Fiery Runes Series, Need to get with Delo and see if he wants to name his 3d art series and make a similar page so he can show how he made all his images. Worst case scenario I could just add how i did the series as a subsection on my page as the rest of the series posts are there too. I might do that for now and when we get the data all situated ill move it to the new page. Let me know what you think. --holyknight3000 03:43, 31 January 2009 (CET)
With this structure, it does not have to be a "series". Just any project. He could do a Fanart:Mistress of Pain with pics. In this case, it's plenty of room on his Delowyn page, so no need to think of it right now, but as time goes on, there might be too much clutter, so splicing the page up into other articles is just natural. Just like any wiki page! Point is, any article that's related DIRECTLY to fan art, we'll from now on decide to add in a "Fanart:" prefix, just like "User:Holyknight3000" or "Boilerplate:Monster. =) --Leord 15:13, 3 February 2009 (CET)
Sounds like a plan to me leo, in the future let me know when you want me to move my stuff to a new page or whatever. Until then ill build the behind the runes sup-section in the meantime!--holyknight3000 21:59, 3 February 2009 (CET)


Hey Leo, check my page i replied to your message! --holyknight3000 22:53, 4 February 2009 (CET)

On a side note i pray when i created pages and moved them around like you asked, that i did them right, please get back with me soon if i didn't. I have a feeling i did just still worried you know. This is THE diablowiki after all! --holyknight3000 02:37, 5 February 2009 (CET)

Phase Two for the Behind the Fiery Runes[edit]

Just letting you know leo if you havent seen yet that ive started adding images to the Fanart:Behind_the_Fiery_Runes and will gradually add more as time goes on. I know ill do revisions but Atleast the sections getting some images added now!--holyknight3000 00:26, 15 February 2009 (CET)

Massive Wiki Updates for my Sections[edit]

hey leo Ive been a tad busy today, updated Fanart:Behind the Fiery Runes, Fanart:Fiery Runes Series, and my Holyknight3000 page changing my Fiery Rune links into sub-links now that i learned the code a little better, let me know what you think. I really liked how it all turned out. I may take it easy from a wallpaper this week i dunno I might make a new non fiery wall. See ya soon!--holyknight3000 02:24, 16 February 2009 (CET)

Aw, man, this is exactly what I was thinking of when I was encouraging you to make a HK3K page! I fixed some oddity you made with the titles, but that's about it. I think you should add links to your Wiki profile, forum profile(s) and any Deviant Art account or the like. --Leord 16:57, 16 February 2009 (CET)
Hey Leo i also left messages on both discussions on both the wiki pages, here - Talk:Fanart:Behind the Fiery Runes and Talk:Fanart:Fiery Runes Series, The Behind the fiery runes one i had an idea come about, take a look and lemme know what ya think.--holyknight3000 22:09, 16 February 2009 (CET)
Oki, made some comments, but with your newfound wiki skillz, there isn't much to say! ;) --Leord 11:17, 17 February 2009 (CET)

Re: Grammar Fixes[edit]

Sorry about the late reply; college has me busy at the moment :(

Anyhow, I'd love to do some more writing/grammar fixes for the Wiki when I have the time. Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like me to work on. - NateD 09:34, 17 February 2009 (CET)

Replying on your page, we might as well keep the discussion there =) --Leord 11:17, 17 February 2009 (CET)

Question for you Leo[edit]

Check my talk on my wiki page man, i'll keep all my fan art section ideas and questions there for the time being, please check it often.--holyknight3000 12:07, 17 February 2009 (CET)


So... is the double talk pages a problem with the way the site is set up? Heh. Anyway, I left some messages [[1]]. MarauderIIC 09:04, 18 February 2009 (CET)

"Trading" article is up[edit]

I've started an article on item trading in DIII. It's not much to look at yet, but the basics are there. Let me know what you think! --NateD 21:10, 18 February 2009 (CET)

Excellent, that's a very good start! I think we can likely flesh that out a little bit later as well, with details, such as the Auction House rumours etc. The Auction house article can be part of trading for now, and we'll redirect it in to the Trading article.
Sorry that I haven't replied before now, I have been very busy =P --Leord 15:42, 26 February 2009 (CET)


Hi Leord, I accidently uploaded this file ( to the wrong wiki. I've uploaded it to the right one now, but I can't seem to delete the old version. Could you do it for me/tell me how.

Cheers --Dragonhelmuk 23:13, 26 February 2009 (CET)

Hello mate! No problems! I haven't made a help page for this, so it's my own fault. There IS two wikis so this will happen once in a while. Over all, there is no problems with having images that are not 100% useful in the wiki, but on a principle, we do try to delete them and organize them in categories. The categorization has been very bad for myself, but that's a future project at this point. I have a plan for the structure, and it's easier to concentrate on one project at the time.
So! To delete an article, image, template or whatever, just add a delete template in it, like this: {{delete|reason for deletion}}, just like a stub =) --Leord 11:57, 27 February 2009 (CET)

Heya Leord[edit]

I'm not sure who to annoy with this, but maybe you can tell those who know something about this. As of today (or yesterday; didn't check back then), the dropdown menu's drop down behind everything else, making them practically useless (and making rc hard to reach :o ). I'm using Firefox 3.0.7 on a Vista Ultimate rig, can't check other browsers as I don't have any ^^ --Vipermagi 12:14, 8 March 2009 (CET)

Flux told me of this, I'll bug the right person about it. There should not have been made any software changes to the site, so the change is weird. --Leord 11:55, 10 March 2009 (CET)
I forgot to mention this earlier; It's fixed now. Thanks to whomever :) --Vipermagi 22:03, 23 March 2009 (CET)


Test... test...--DxAxxxTyriel 15:22, 1 April 2009 (CEST)

Test test... Wiki's would be much better with PM system... sigh....--DxAxxxTyriel 15:35, 1 April 2009 (CEST)

So, i edited the Inventory page... if im guessing correctly, you're the guy who re-edited it... and caused me a nervous breakdown xD.... and dude, why are you adding the "Please note that the area labelled "left hand" is actually right hand slot on the screen and vice-versa. It's the left hand of the character." under the part bout bags? my pic has correct sides... i said right hand where HIS right hand is... and why cant we link to the blizzcast site? i mean the other thing is good, but blizzcast feels more... official? ima move the Please note bout vice versa hands thingy to nearby Vikkz image. --DxAxxxTyriel 15:44, 1 April 2009 (CEST)
You'll get around to it in notime. In the meanwhile, please use DiabloWiki:Sanbox instead of my talk page to test =P --Leord 15:48, 1 April 2009 (CEST)
The explanation is not made by me, I didn't really read it, It can be modified. As for the link, it's just better to have links to pages you know works. If people want to have the official source, it's available in the news item. The difference is that all the important things is in the news item, while with the BlizzCast, someone would have to read a whole lot of text to get the info they need. It's more practical. We might change this policy at a later time though, we'll see, the wiki is still relatively new, even if it has info in it from 10 years past! =) --Leord 15:48, 1 April 2009 (CEST)
Still ill move that vice versa hand thingy note to Vikkz image.... and BTW the 3 other images you added are blank... all i see are white pictures for some reason... --DxAxxxTyriel 1 April 2009 (CEST)
It does not belong under "development" though. =) I rephrased it and moved it to a new section instead. Very good job, I think we're done!. Also, the images were white since they were missing. Now they are uploaded, they are there! --Leord 15:58, 1 April 2009 (CEST)

Article regarding item colors...[edit]

so... i wanna make an article on item colors, what they mean etc etc... but A: should we make this article? B: Can we put this article into "weapons" or "inventory"? --1 April 2009 DxAxxxTyriel

Hello DxAxxxTyriel! That's very cool, but you should do that in the Items article. There is an Item Quality section already that you can re-write or replace with all the new info.
Also, you need to sign your talk page posts, so people can see who made it, and when. Just type --~~~~, or click the button in the tool box above that looks like this. =) More info on Help:Talk --Leord 18:55, 1 April 2009 (CEST)
Well i do use it all the time... whenever i post in discussions or on talks... dont you see the stamp at the end of my msg's? and regarding item colors... i wanna state that an item's Background states its type... as seen in the latest pics and some others, an item's background shows what type of item it is... Blue background = Magic, Yellow = Rare, Standard color = non-magical equipment, Green (talisman) may = quest items... need proof? --DxAxxxTyriel 19:31, 1 April 2009 (CEST)
Yeah, I got that, looks like a very good idea to go with! As I said, just implement it in the Items article! =)
As for your sig. I just don;t understand why the wiki doesn't make your name into a link, like mine! --Leord 13:41, 2 April 2009 (CEST)

Wiki idea...[edit]

1st i want my cookie.... 2nd the idea is to add a transcript of everything that Bashiok posted in the forums (Only informative posts) since the dawn of time....--DxAxxxTyriel 14:45, 3 April 2009 (CEST)

It's a very cool idea. It also entails a LOT of work. Please remember that all blue posts also can be found on , so the immediate need and demand for it isn't all that... I'd like to have all blue posts very much though. Question is if something you do on the DW might actually be more popular by the community if it's more directly informative or useful, like many of the changes you've made! =) --Leord 18:46, 7 April 2009 (CEST)
sometimes i get lots of free time... so i can do it... i dont get what you mean by "Question is if something you do on the DW might actually be more popular by the community if it's more directly informative or useful, like many of the changes you've made! =)".... --DxAxxxTyriel 18:52, 7 April 2009 (CEST)
I mean that you need to ask yourself whether 50 hours of finding all blue posts by Bashiok will make more people happy than if you do other contributions to the wiki =) --Leord 18:58, 7 April 2009 (CEST)

Abd al-Hazir Page edits[edit]

It's very nice to make your acquaintance.

I do have some previous wiki experience, actually; I taught a short class on them last summer. I'm really mostly a browser, but it kills me to see bad grammar, so sometimes I step in. I also thought that the clear tie between the title "the warner" and al-Hazir's previous writings needed to be mentioned.

I probably won't be too active as a contributor, but I do browse often, so I will clean up little things here and there. Once we have more information on the trading aspects of DIII, perhaps I will be more involved. But please feel free to give me advice. One's writing is never perfect, and mine is a little worse for the past few months spent in France.

New category?[edit]

Hey there. I have a handful of pages on a gaming wikia as an introduction to a particular D2 mod. Somebody pointed me in the direction of this wiki thinking it would help more people. However, I don't want to just simply upload stuff here because from what I can see everything in this wiki appears to be for the original game. There isn't even a section or category for mods. So what's the official word on this? - Trucidation 03:25, 1 May 2009 (CEST)

There's little to say about D3, really, because little has been released. We have a few things about D2 for comparision I guess. Also, since D3 isn't even released yet, it's unlikely there are mods for it, eh. --Vipermagi 20:55, 1 May 2009 (CEST)
I'm confused, I'm talking about a D2 mod not D3. There are bunches of D2 mods out there (see Phrozen Keep). Nevermind, I already figured out wiki categories already. - Trucidation 15:50, 2 May 2009 (CEST)
Now we're both confused. D2 mods? Why? --Vipermagi 21:14, 2 May 2009 (CEST)
Eh? Sing_In_Silence mentioned that I should do the Median wiki here. So that's what I did. I asked here because I didn't see a mods category listed, that's all. - Trucidation 08:50, 3 May 2009 (CEST)

I think Leo fell off the face of the Earth or something. Also, just noticed my talkpage is linked to as "needs fixing" on your userpage? For what I know it's not broken :> --Vipermagi 11:13, 16 May 2009 (CEST)

Yeah., and a holiday made me fall off! Massive excuses! :) Anyway, D2Wiki is the way to go to make wiki pages about the mod. The only question is really the naming policies you'll use. I would suggest using a regular name (a character you made in the mod for instance) for everything that doesn't have a regular D2 reference. If it does, use "Name_used_(X_mod)". "X_mod" would be the name of your mod.
It's also very important that you make a category for all pages in the mod, and put all articles relating to your mod in this category. A little template box to put at the top of each page just indicating "This is an article relating to the Diablo II mod X" would also be good.
Besides that, it will of course help to have a good navigation template to add on the bottom or something as well. Seeing as you have previous experience with wikis, I assume you understand what I mean, or else, just check the Help section. :)
Vipermagi, if I'm gone, please tell everyone that asks "can I put this here" - YES! :) Either way, awesome that you did answer him as well! :) Also, don't hesitate to PM me or send me an e-mail! --Leord 18:02, 20 May 2009 (CEST)

Oi, Archive?![edit]

2 things:
I removed a broken link added by User:AcelvIrolc in this edit. I noticed we don't have the Undo/Revert function? *sadface* Oh well, just takes a little getting used to.
And your talkpage is 35Kb. That means your talkpage is getting big. Maybe consider an archive some time soon? :P --Vipermagi 12:13, 23 May 2009 (CEST)

Eh, just found out about an error in the code; When using the Toolbox option "What Links Here", it will always have the Main Page as target, rather than the page you're on when you click the link. I wanted to redirect links from Great Exile to Dark Exile, as I moved the former to the latter to correspond with Lore.
"Related Changes", "Printable Version" and "Permanent Link" have similar issues. Permanent Link doesn't take the Main Page, but a certain revision in the history of this site: Prime Evils page creation. --Vipermagi 12:24, 23 May 2009 (CEST)
Regarding the "variable" links on each page: I really thought they fixed that. It was a problem way back, and Rush said he sorted it. I guess we'll have to look harder. The menus could use a little polish anyway. I can't remember the standard way of making an archive, so I have not yet bothered. You are right though, it needs to be done! --Leord 17:47, 26 May 2009 (CEST)
Over on GuildWars wikis I frequent Moving the page is preferrable, due to the History tab; If you copy/paste all messages, the history isn't copied along, thus basically breaching copyright. And having a massacre History tab to look back into 15 archives is... less than desirable :) --Vipermagi 22:22, 26 May 2009 (CEST)

I would like to make you and Azymn sysops. It would be so much easier. The problem is that I can't find where to do it :P I have done it in the past. Any tips?
Regarding moving, that's usually better. The problem is if there is a page there already, in which case, the next best thing is copy-paste... --Leord 13:41, 28 May 2009 (CEST)
Well, I assume you're not going to move your current talk page to Barbarian, so that won't be a problem. Also, special:userrights? --Vipermagi 17:16, 28 May 2009 (CEST)
Hehe. Oki, thanks for the tip. It seems I am not a Bureaucrat. Asking if Flux can fix. --Leord 20:48, 28 May 2009 (CEST) III Weekly Wallpaper Updates[edit]

Yo Leo, just wanted to let you know i have finished the updates on the Diablo III Weekly Wallpaper section tables all set and modified. If i broke em up by months that might have looked a little off so i just did them by post number and the (date) style like i had it. Also thinking in the future about Art Watch wiki page or whatever we choose to call it in the future. Let me know what you think. Now that im done here and posted my wallpapers, im going to bed talk to you soon Gunnar! --holyknight3000 11:03, 1 June 2009 (CEST)

I've told you what I think on MSN and on the talk pages :) Great job! --Leord 12:56, 8 June 2009 (CEST)

Fan Class - Ranger[edit]

Go ahead and make whatever edits you'd like to make to the Ranger, I'm all done for now. --Tigreye007 17:00, 12 June 2009 (CEST)

conditional templating[edit]

Hey Leord, here's the modified test template we discussed earlier that taps into the extended ParserFunctions. I used the functions on most of the Label/value rows (Life, Mana, Resistance, etc) conditional so you can see the benefit. It's a bit harder to read, but the functions work as advertised. --Azymn

That is just awesome. Could I ask you to implement it on an actual monster, so I know how it would look? --Leord 11:25, 17 June 2009 (CEST)

Fan Class - Zealot[edit]

Hi Leord. Thanks for the touch up. Yep, I did all the drawings and stuff myself. Feel free to make any changes you like, as I have absolutely no idea how to set up a good looking wiki page. Thanks again

Abd Al-Hazir[edit]

Hey Leord, I say on the Abd Al-Hazir article that you have "the meaning of "Abd" is literary "Worshipper of God" or "Worshipper" in Arabic, and "al-Hazir" mean "The Warner"."

As far as I have ever learned, Abd (عبد) means slave (or servant) in Arabic.

I'm hesitant to change the article because I am by no means an expert in Arabic. I was just wondering where your translation came from.

--13:24, 6 July 2009 SneakyArab

Hello SneakyArab. I got my translation from a colleague, who was kind enough to translate it for me. I asked him about this, and he said this:
that is correct
Abd means worshiper of
slave and servant could use abd, but it translates to worshipper directly
servant is khaddam, not abd
He's kind of journalist and stuff, so I'd let his word stand unless you got support from some more arab-speaking people, or textual references :) --Leord 15:36, 6 July 2009 (CEST)

Well, Abd came up in a discussion with my arabic teacher once, and he is a Saudi citizen, and he said it meant slave. My grandmother (who was from Lebanon) also used it as such. It could have other meanings, I've just never heard it like that.
--SneakyArab 15:44, 6 July 2009 (CEST)

Well, I have to agree an Arabic teacher would know. Asking for clarification :) --Leord 15:52, 6 July 2009 (CEST)
Ok, cool :) --SneakyArab 16:00, 6 July 2009 (CEST)
He said: "It's a matter of dialect. Abd is the proper Arabic word for slave, worshiper, servant, but in modern standard arabic it's different and depending on where you are in the Arabic speaking world. Abd is more generally regarded as worshiper and prefixes the names of God. It's unlikely you'll have a slave in this day and age, so that word has kind of lost its meaning."
I've added both the meanings, and you're free to edit it further if it can be improved more! :) --Leord 16:03, 6 July 2009 (CEST)
OK, good enough for me! Thanks --SneakyArab 16:28, 6 July 2009 (CEST)

The search function[edit]

Usually, when you click a search bar, it's empty (if it has a text, it's automatically removed).
However, I noticed that, using Firefox 3 and Monobook, the "Search Diablo 3" text needs to be manually removed here. Not really convenient, so to say. I don't know who else to bother with this, but you do, so... :D --Vipermagi 17:54, 6 July 2009 (CEST)

Reported to rushster :) --Leord 18:11, 6 July 2009 (CEST)
