GuildWiki talk:Monster images project

From GuildWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

this was a personal project started by me, but it was suggested by User:Tanaric that we make this a wiki-wide project. Kamiawolf 11:28, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

Project Proposal[edit source]

I'd like to see more editors band together for a single, specific goal, like this project. If you like, feel free to move this into the GuildWiki namespace (GuildWiki:Image project) and work together there to organize a collective effort. —Tanaric 10:48, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

Nice project, I see some of those monser every day and never realise we dont have screen shot of them. I'll try to help.—├ Aratak 10:49, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
I'm reletively new to more "hard core" wiki editing (usually just a few things ive picked up), so im not really sure what goes into making a real project? I'm glad people like this idea tho... I was suprised to see so many pages without image! :D Kamiawolf 10:58, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
As far as I know, the GuildWiki has never had a real, structured project like this, so there's no procedure in place. Just move this article over to GuildWiki:Image project (or something similar, the name is up to you) and work together with others who are interested. I'll make a central article GuildWiki:Projects later today advertising a project system, and your image project can be the first! —Tanaric 11:19, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
Ok sounds good. The list is just kinda messy right now, so hopefully that can be fixed up if this gets more popular! Kamiawolf 11:24, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
If we move this to a project we should update Ledrug page for armor and put it on the the task list too. So we did sort of have a project page.—├ Aratak 11:26, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
Since this was moved, I altered Kamiawolf's comment and put it at the top, and merged the old talk page over. I hope you don't mind! —Tanaric 13:53, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

My user page has a little list similar to this page, compiled before I knew of this project's existence. Difference being that my page links to the monster article, whereas the links here are directed straight to the images. I prefer my setup better, but if someone wants to add more monsters that need images to this page from my list, they can go right ahead Swordfish56 11:09, 2 May 2007 (CDT)

I can see why the monster page is a practical, sine you can just use the link to find where to find them but this setup make it easier to manage. Since blue link mean someone uploaded a image. Since I'm going for vanquisher I will try to complete this list.—├ Aratak 11:33, 2 May 2007 (CDT)
well ill help out as much as I can, already got one down lol woo more to go--Patch 16:56, 23 June 2007 (CDT)

Filename edits[edit source]

Aratak, I see there's a bunch of filenames you're fixing. It might be worthwhile to check the articles that need images to make sure their image link is correct. I imagine that Kamiawolf just copied these over from there. —Tanaric 10:56, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

I changed the link on the page before changing it here. :D —├ Aratak 11:06, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
Ah, okay. Very cool. :) —Tanaric 11:19, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

Found Images[edit source]

When we find images, should we delete the links, strike them through, or what would be best? Kamiawolf 16:12, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

They will become blue links. :) --Karlos 20:24, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
Sounds good. Now get to work! :D Kamiawolf 21:02, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

Great![edit source]

I love taking images but never managed to find a directory where all missing images are listed exept for worthless "Image Missing", I'll get to work!--~Edo Dodo~ 13:01, 5 December 2006 (CST)

I noticed that the image links lead to a text file instead of upload image, I'll change that to link to upload image, if you want, is it meant to be like that?

Format[edit source]

From what i can tell your supposed to be able to click on the link to get to the upload page. Normally this requires the image to be on this page for that feature to work. Perhaps we could have links to the page that uses the image or use the actual image but use a very small scale. I'll look into which is easier and try to implement one or both if there are no objections.--Brother Roland 13:20, 17 December 2006 (CST)

Nightfall[edit source]

Should we start adding them? --Mgrinshpon 22:30, 7 January 2007 (CST)

Add all monsters with no image. The list hasn't been updated for ages and is missing a lot of stuff from all three campaigns. --Gem-icon-sm.png (talk) 08:39, 8 January 2007 (CST)
Well ... I added all the Anur Margonites and a few Titans from the Domain of Anguish recently ... I guess that's a start. ^_^ --KirinRiotCrash 20:06, 5 April 2007 (CDT)
I added some creatures from the bestiary, using the system of looking through subcatagories that represent species in alphabetical order. I managed to complete A to G so far. As to this system i have not checked all Assassins or Bosses yet, along with other non-species subcatagories. If someone wants to continue where i left off go for it, i'll be taking a short break. Also, are we adding NPCs to this as well? --Brother Roland 20:27, 6 May 2007 (CDT)
Why not? Although they should probably be separate from the monster image list. --Gem-icon-sm.png (gem / talk) 06:56, 7 May 2007 (CDT)
Added another set of monsters spanning H to L (soooooo many humans). --Brother Roland 13:21, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
Ah it was you KirinRiotCrash who added all of those anur pages. Hope you don't mind too much that I've replaced all of them with enchanced images with no HUD in view. (Ctrl-Shift-H iss wonderful for photos). --Ckal Ktak 17:22, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Scale Fleshrend[edit source]

How shall we go about getting a screenie of him, as he has been removed from GW? PossessedLinebeck 18:45, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Just use a pic of another elementalist skale boss? They all look alike anyway. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 18:50, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
He was a Drake. There is only one other ele drake boss, and he's an Ice Drake. PossessedLinebeck 18:53, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
>< D'oh. Just ignore me then... —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:02, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
:P I'll do what I can. I'll find something. Hmmm..No other Krytan Drake Elementalist bosses..Would it be bad to use a Ring of fire drake or just a picture of another Grand Drake? PossessedLinebeck 20:05, 24 July 2008 (UTC) PossessedLinebeck 19:52, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
I was going to make an "Image not available" image anyhow,we can use that for him and a few other places. --◄mendel► 06:18, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Isk8 dug up a pic of Scale, but it shows a slightly off model for Drakes, with a square head and the fins on the back are slightly different. But, it's a pic nontheless :P --- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 08:38, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Most excellent! --◄mendel► 09:12, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

counts[edit source]

Mendel, why is the total number of "beasts" decreasing in your Automated list summaries? It went from 5180 to 5155 to 5076... and I know we haven't deleted 100 monster articles in the past couple weeks. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:05, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Actually, the current pages dump is getting smaller as well (by some Megabytes). I have archives of all the old dumps, so I can unpack some and find out which monsters have gotten lost (and why) - maybe someone's been subst-ing beastinfos? Good of you to notice that. --◄mendel► 16:25, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
The Afflicted Shen and Digger seemingly missed your list despite not having a picture. Cress Arvein Cress sig.JPG 18:24, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, digger was definitely on the old list, and there hasn't been an edit. Looks like I won't have time tonight, but I'm not going to forget. --◄mendel► 23:46, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
See Wikia staff noticeboard. Thanks for the links, Cress (and thanks to the Dr for the links on the images), it was very convenient to not have to go find them as I was penning the bug report. --◄mendel► 05:42, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

New Automatic list?[edit source]

I've been able to add a few pictures over the past couple weeks. I am moving a character along the Nightfall story to get to some NPC that only spawns during a quest and I plan on going to the dungeons in EotN to see what shots I can get. I'm not much of an elite player so I have serious doubts that I can get shots of the elite areas in Factions and some of the challenge missions in EotN and Nightfall. So after I get the shots that I intend, I do not know how much I will be able to help with the remaining missing shots. Would it be possible to do another automatic list to see if there are any other pictures missing that might be within my reach?Bikeboy854 04:03, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, you do know that the mission list is incomplete? Anyway, the way I understand it Wikia says they won't do the database dumps any more with the current setup, and I fully expect it to be May before they do one again. I'm going to ask them for it again, but it may prove as unfruitful as before. If I find a way to list all monster pages I could possibly devise another way to get the information ... hmm... it'd probably mean three hours of ciding and bashing my head against the wiki, so I really want to avoid that. Sigh. --◄mendel► 11:26, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
No, I don't know for sure, but not being anywhere close to knowing the way wiki works, I thought it would be an easy process to recheck and see if any new pages have cropped up without pictures, since the last automatic listing was done in September. (Man, that is a long sentence) If there is not an easy way to do it, let's not.Bikeboy854 00:23, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
It's been that long? I didn't realize. I can run my scripts on the March 5th data, that's got to be an improvement then. :) Now I need sleep. --◄mendel► 00:48, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Good news: I got a reply from Wikia support that a current dump "should be available very shortly." --◄mendel► 18:02, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Finishing a dead project?[edit source]

I know it is in the dead project list, but I went ahead and found all the monsters I could. I am not in a Luxon guild, but will try to get a guest to try to get the Seaguard. The transformed people shouldn't be too hard since Halloween is just around the corner. I think the Kurzick child does not exist. The other wiki has a page for it, but I have never seen on ingame. I'm sure there are more pics missing with the new content added, but as of now, this project is all but done. Bikeboy854 06:57, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Thats GREAT! When (if) I get round to WoC, I will try and ad as much as I can... Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 07:28, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
