Re: Cleaning up the Frontpage

Maybe, but I still think it is better to have a lean Main Page or one with "eternal" (aka non-changing) content, than one with content that wants to be up-to-date and just isn't. First impressions matter and this give the impression of an unattended site, unfortunately. e.g. common rules f...

Cleaning up the Frontpage

As much as I like the front page of UOGuide, it partly gives the impression of an abandoned project with the poll and the spotlight etc. not having been updated since early 2016.

The easiest way to rectify this imho would be to simply remove these areas if no one has the time to keep them updated.

Re: No more Talk pages?

Hey JC,

think you'll find some time to add the link to the talk pages to the navigation? Would be really helpful. I know how to access them, but I fear without a link somewhere I'll never get an answer if I post there.

No more Talk pages?

I just recently came back to UO and thus to UOGuide and noticed the redesign. It is nice, but i can't find the talk pages that accompanied articles. Is the forum now used for discussions about articles? Why I even noticed this: I stumbled upon the Intelligence article (http://www.uoguide.com/Intelli...

Re: Important Status Update About UOGuide's Future

This is bad! UOGuide was my go-to site for information. I was more of a casual editor at best and also noted the lack of current information. So while sad, your decision might be the right one. It would be good though, if at least the current state could be preserved as an archive. Maybe just deacti...

Template Request

I noticed that most of the Gargoyle Weapons miss the nice weapon specials box as can be seen here e.g. http://www.uoguide.com/Longsword I like it and think that all weapon pages should have it. Unfortunately it's not a template but a regular table. So, before I start copy-pasting like there's no tom...

Re: Ranking articles?

Ok, that does sound like a lot of work. Especially to pay attention that it doesn outdate. It should be possible to make something like that automatically - mediawiki stores everything in an sql database after all. I'll keep an eye open for a suitable extension ;) mediawiki thankfully doesn't make i...

Ranking articles?

Hi, I was just looking at some monster page and thought how cool it would be to have a list ordered by the amount of fame a monster gives. So the question is: Would it be possible to generate lists of articles sorted by the value of a certain field? Would also be nice to sort weapons by swing speed ...
