Long term task: Add item rewards to Quests

Created:       User:  17:24, 23 July 2015 (CEST)
Template:QuestReward is based on each quest page and extracts the item rewards. However, there are tons of quests not having set the rewards up correctly. This is a historical issue since the reward template has been changed several times and the community wasn't aware to change 'old articles' accordingly. Fixing this will be very time consuming, but can be split up to multiple editors without any issues. While on that task, the other reward options (blessings, titles, and so on..) may also be updated.
There is also Template:ItemQuests which does the same. Since it is redundant we should remove it. Maybe rename Template:QuestReward into QuestRewards:item. Since there are alot of other templates enlisting a quest reward on multiple article types we can identify more easily, what it is about, then.

Overhaul old location relics

Created:       User:  18:06, 2 August 2015 (CEST)
Category:Location has been established, but some of the old 'relics' are still there. The new main categories are: Category:City, Category:Settlement, Category:Guild, Category:Outpost, Category:Blighted Land, Category:Dungeon and Category:Landmark. All others are due to be subcategorized or removed.


  • Remove obsolete, old categories
  • Check for missing/misplaced pages in the new categories (especially Category:Guild)
  • Fill Category:Landmark with data (that's entirely new, pages are all missing)
This project is currently being worked on.

This project is not yet in work.

Fix user-defined sidebar and toolbox

Created:       User:  10:44, 6 August 2015 (CEST)
Currently both of the features are available but bugged. Adding items to the toolbox or sidebar lets the navigation menu disappear completely or the page loading ends up in an empty screen.

If you encounter this problem here's the fix:

  • Use another browser, not having session data from the site so you get in anonymously
  • Alternative: Clear your site cookies of your browser to remove any login data
  • Access the sidebar/toolbar page in your user space
  • empty both of them
  • You should be able to log in again and load the site
  • Bugfixes are coming asap

Task collection for The Gifted's guide to the Istaria Lexica Wiki

Created:       User:  15:59, 14 August 2015 (CEST)
This is a collection of tasks to be done for the guide. Once the collection grows an editor may spend a few hours of work into walking through them. Can be partially done or completely. The Project just serves to collect tiny tasks, not worth doing as a single thing.


  • Explain Special Pages, escpecially 'Wanted' lists and editing specific ones
  • Add a 'Creating a new Page' subguide. Should serve as a 'edit from scratch help'     Check.png finished!
  • Add hints that templates with screenshots support jpg files only
  • Add a guide for stub editing     Check.png finished!
This project has been finished.

Create Template:QuestReqItem

Created:       User:  23:59, 15 August 2015 (CEST)
The template should be added to all items. It shall show what quest(s) the item is being required in and a backlink there. On Template:Quest there already is a required item field which is not correctly configured and used yet. Property:Item has been used in a false manner with the template's 'item' parameter. This conflicts heavily with the item parameter of Template:QuestReward.
  • create Template:QuestReqItem     Check.png finished!
  • rename item to itemreq in Template:Quest     Check.png finished!
  • use Property:itemreq in Template:Quest    Check.png finished!
  • update all items accordingly
  • update all quests accordingly
This project has been finished.

The Bitter Pickle: add non-quest dependent items

Created:       User:  11:22, 29 August 2015 (CEST)
There are several other drops off the Bitter Pickle creatures, for example 'rare' bottle caps. They don't seem to be linked with quests but contain hoard values and description texts.

Created:       User:  15:17, 27 September 2015 (CEST)
