00:01.33sacarascgot thrown by that gnome device thing right at him
00:16.24Sky2042Zeal: still working on the cat tree?
00:22.36sacarasccat tree? ;o
00:23.08Zealnot going too deep
00:23.20Zealbut almost done, leaving WoWWiki cat alone for now.
00:23.24Zealand image stuff.
00:27.03ZealSky, take al ook now, should be mostly complete
00:27.31Zealgunna post al ink to it in the discussion on VP, can leave feedback there it's very rough keep in mind.
00:29.24Sky2042Biggest issues I have is that the whole thing has capitalized categories.
00:29.40Sky2042You really /didn't/ go into detail though...
00:30.19Sky2042Don't know that we need both a flora nad a fauna category.
00:31.20Sky2042having parantheses in the middle of certain cats looks annoying...
00:31.54Sky2042probably shouldn't use abbreviations if at all possible (eg, Warcraft I units as opposed to WC1 units)
00:32.41Sky2042I don't know why mobs and npcs and etc are subcats of "Geography". makes no sense.

00:34.43Sky2042wonder where my retainer went
00:35.12Zealgeography is the study of the world, it's people, it's culture, it's practices etc.
00:35.34Sky2042true. but most people think of geography simply as where someone is.
00:35.45Sky2042based on surrounding land.
00:35.53Zealit's not just limited to study of the earth :p. And jsut so you know, that's how most of the wow content is categorized
00:36.13Zealso clearly people though otherwise and no one thought it needed to be changed.
00:36.24Zealand when i say most, i do mean most.
00:36.31Zeal80% of it? lol
00:36.57Zealfauna is for creatures and such
00:37.16Zealflora is soemthing we lack on really, but would be great to see added.
00:37.35Zealespecially as a lore entry point for herbs and such.
00:37.52Zealas to names, sure. i'll lower
00:38.07Zealand the abberviations was me being lazy really
00:38.10Zealwill fix.
00:38.28Sky2042I'd personally go with [[Category:Nature]] or leave it to [[Category:Creatures]] and [[Category:Plants]], etc
00:40.45Zealwell being lore, i would like to think people aren't stupid, so will understand geography, flora and fauna :p
00:41.01Sky2042but they won't.
00:41.08Zealthey will ;)
00:41.10Sky2042the masses are stupid.
00:41.13Sky2042that's just how it is.
00:41.27Adysexpert talks
00:42.00Zealthe masses don't care about the lore. and the masses of people who do care about lore, don't deserve to learn if they don't know the meaning of those words :P
00:42.22*** join/#wowwiki Hobinheim|ubuntu (
00:42.35foxlitI demand more Outlands content, 'kay?!
00:42.37Sky2042And besides. No-one uses flora and fauna in normal every day usage, last I checked. You'll hear it occassionally....
00:42.39Sky2042foxlit: no.
00:42.41Zealbah, lowering case will take a bit more time, i can't pull regex's out of my ass :/
00:42.52Sky2042I can run through and replace prolly.
00:43.04Zealsure, go for it.
00:43.50Sky2042what am I replacing?
00:44.07Zealjust keep in mind, actual game titles should be kept as capitals. like product titles etc.
00:44.07Sky2042maybe not on that one
00:44.17Sky2042because they're proper nouns. :P
00:45.06Zeali capitalize because i think the title of an article should be title case, simple as that.

00:52.24pcjyeah but wikis are different because you link to pages in the middle of sentences
00:52.40pcjsince title case usually isn't appropriate there it's better to make the page names sentence case
00:53.43Zealmost cases you're talking about are proper nouns though
00:54.22Zealrefering to an original article though, because of it being an original body of work, using title case is correct.
00:54.47Zealvery few cases you would have a link on WW not in title case
00:54.48Zealbut meh.
00:55.01Zealdoen yet Sky2042? :P
00:55.06Zealgot another edit to make.
00:55.10Sky2042I have yet to touch it
00:55.12Sky2042make your edit.
01:01.17Sky2042Zeal: where would you place MVPs?
01:01.23Sky2042forum mvps*
01:02.05Sky2042assumed, but as a subcat?
01:02.52Zealnot placed yet, will do now if you wish.
01:04.06Sky2042you know, what I'd like to see is a giant category map... not one that we want, just as it stands.
01:05.35Sky2042might need an additional cat
01:05.43Sky2042Cat:Forums or some such
01:09.15Zealthere, added. 3 entry points to such articles. think after fleshing it out, more likely end up at 4-5 entry points to them.
01:10.11Zeal3 direct, 4 inc indirect
01:11.02Zealand yeah, and existing map would be lol
01:11.20Zealthe lroe cat is pretty overloaded, first thing i noticed.
01:11.37Sky2042would have to do it in an image editing program.
01:12.01Sky2042the what?...
01:12.13Zealwell if we had the cat tree extenstion installed, we could see it easily.
01:12.29Sky2042and yes, the Lore cat is just a mess.
01:12.38Sky2042double-catting, mostly.
01:13.56Sky2042Like Bindings of the Windseeker... Why is it in Lore again?
01:14.34Zealwell bascially it seems anything that contained a bit of story got added to the cat
01:14.52Zealwhich is not what it's for, it's for articles solely about the lore :P
01:14.58Zealand cats ofc.
01:14.59Sky2042I look forward to getting rid of the category "Lore characters"... -_-
01:15.11Zealwell i want that as jsut characters.
01:15.13Sky2042would be nice to just have categories based on appearances.
01:15.33Zealoh, we have the characters cat, woot.
01:15.43Sky2042eg "Rise of the Horde characters", "Magic and Mayhem characters", etc
01:16.15Zealwell that's what my idea for cats was supposed to address
01:16.27Zealbut we know where that went :P
01:18.46Sky2042the way you tried to implement it is what failed
01:18.57Sky2042but no matter.
01:19.15Zealwhich aspect? the naming?
01:19.42Zealthe naming was mainly to reduce the bloating of cat names
01:19.51Sky2042how so?
01:19.52Zealwhile providing no fonclit
01:20.44[NewsBot]The job queue length is currently 20 doing ~1 job/s, done in approx. 20secs.
01:20.50Sky2042pretty short.
01:20.57Zealignore that actially
01:20.59Sky2042time to edit tooltip again, I think
01:23.14Zeali'd just hate to see soemthing like Onyxia's loot vs. NPC:Onyxia/Items. the former breaks out of the context of wow and what the article's subject was, for anyone who doesn't know what an "Onyxia" is :p
01:25.04Sky2042you mean like
01:25.11Sky2042[[Category:Blackrock Depths items]]?
01:25.11[NewsBot]Sky2042 meant:
01:25.44Sky2042or by actually using the name of Onyxia?
01:26.10*** join/#wowwiki Arideni (
01:26.57Sky2042owned by pcj
01:27.19Sky2042In Soviet Russia, American spelling owns you!
01:30.11ZealYeah, i'd rather see [[Category:Zone:Blackrock Depths/Items]], shows that it's a zone in WoW, and that the relationship is that these are WoW items located in that zone. The other could easily be Blackrock Depths items article name, or a website called that with items created by that site, or simply Blackrock Depths items, eg. a non-set grouping of items.
01:31.19Sky2042you would... oh well.
01:31.37Zealthat's also asuming that the Item: namespace exists. if it doesn't, then it doesn't work as such a cat name wouldn't be obvious to a user as being WoW items (hence i wouldn't allow it)
01:32.27Sky2042pcj is having fun with your request for feedback on vp :P
01:33.09Zeali noticed. typos ftl. and lol @ rumors
01:33.55Zealand sticking with Manwha. pissed off Tokyo pop market their stuff as Manga, just for the sake of it. all their original english language stuff is Manwha, korean.
01:34.24Zealyeah i know..
01:34.42Zealthat's further loz : /
01:34.53Zeali bet i typed it all wrong in the articles too.
01:35.04pcji think that should be up for debate, not per your personal preference
01:35.16pcjafaik the wow comics are marketed as manga too
01:35.37Zealthey're not
01:35.49Zealthey're marketed as comics, pure and simple.
01:35.59pcjhmm ok

01:39.42ZealManga requires an japanese artist, but TokyoPop use it as a buzz word to market all their asian style drawn comics. : / The wow "manga" are all drawn by a Korean artist, making them manhwa. They're also original english manhwa (OEM, also for manga), simply meaning they were originally written in english. Wikipedia have them listed as manhwa too for reference.
01:41.23MentalPoweris there really a difference tho?
01:41.38ZealMOBs is actually an abbreviations btw. Speculation and terminology spelt correctly too : /
01:41.50MentalPowera surrealist piece is surrealist whether the artist is french, canadian, chinese or martian

01:42.21ZealDifferent art styles and origrin of artist is the only difference. Same can also be said about comic vs. manga.
01:42.51ZealMentalPower, you're using a generic term as an example
01:43.53ZealAtm, it's like calling said piece a canadian surrealist piece when it's french.
01:44.19MentalPowerbut theres no such thing as a canadian surrealist
01:44.19KeolahOh, this is classic.
01:44.25MentalPoweror a french surrealist
01:44.32MentalPowerits surrealist period
01:44.44Zealin which case your example has no relevance :p
01:44.45KeolahRFC with a mage, pally, an hunter... and mage is having to tell the other two how to do their roles ;p
01:44.45MentalPowerthe native country of the artist has nothing to do with it
01:44.50AdysMentalPower: to your question
01:44.53Adysthere is a difference
01:45.12Adysif you want more details you'll have to accept what zeal tells you
01:45.24Adysif not, we'll stay at "there is a difference"

01:46.28MentalPowerhow about you just present your evidence and I can refute or accept it
01:46.41Adysas i said
01:46.45Adysits what zeal said
01:46.55Adysdifferent style :/
01:47.31Adystheres no specific term for the kind of comic the wow comics are because its not as different and widespread as mangas
01:48.18MentalPowercan you give me an example of the two styles? (Manga vs. Manhwa)
01:48.29Zealthere'd be no argument if TokyoPop called them comics, as it's just an issue with accuracy, which can be overlooked. but when claiming something is drawn by a japanese artist in an japanese style when it's drawn by a korean artist in a korean style is a glaring issue.
01:49.23Zealall there for you.
01:49.24*** join/#wowwiki anko (
02:12.21MentalPowerthe best comparison that I've found so far is in the last post of this forum thread:
02:12.29MentalPowerwould that be an accurate assessment?
02:12.40MentalPowerZeal, Adys: ^^^^
02:13.29Zeallast post of the topic or last post of the page of the topic? :P
02:14.16MentalPower(just realized there was more than one page)
02:14.30Zealyeah, roughly what i noticed about the wow ones
02:14.41Zealthey are like that, which is nothing like any manga i've read.
02:15.13MentalPowerso they are more detailed than mangas
02:16.06Zealremind me slightly of some english comics i've seen, alot mroe detailed and grittier than manga, but more of an asian influence than american comics.
02:17.29MentalPowerfair enough then
02:17.34MentalPowerI concede the point
02:17.49Zealbased on that post, that's probably why i disliked thme so much, i felt they jumped around a bit too much, but i had always put that down to Knaak's crap writing.
02:18.08Sky2042Zeal: I oppose the change of cat:spells' category to geography.
02:18.37Zealsky, question first. How are you viewing the purpose of the cat. For wow, or for lore?
02:19.44Zealit's being used for both atm. and i intend to use it for lore only. So i'm doing it from a lore view, avoiding a required knowledge of wow's mechanics and terminology.
02:20.19Zealand fyi, even as use for wow, it was wrong. Spells are the correct term for them all, abilities is a fan-term to describe the non-magic ones.
02:20.39MentalPowerZeal: the rest of that tread is also insightful
02:20.56Zeali'm reading ti when i get a chance MentalPower :p
02:21.21Sky2042and how is it being used for both? :/
02:22.05Zealsky, in the game, they are Spells, both in the db and in the front end. But someone got the crazy idea to start using Spells to be the opposite of abilities, and the cat ended up inside the abilities cat, contradciting ww's definition even further.
02:22.19Zealbecause any lore spells would have been in there afaik
02:22.52Zealpretty much all this generic cats are being used for more than wow, but following wow's rules.
02:28.18Sky2042What's wrong with following WoW's rules again?
02:28.21Zealanyways, current plan. reoganise existing category names into proposed structure, then go through them and split off into new cats and create the new structure.
02:28.37Sky2042and hold up. let people come to discuss first.
02:29.18Zealbecause it's not wow information, it's lore. People shouldn't need to have a knowledge of WoW's game terminology or mechanics to browse and find lore.
02:29.37Sky2042give me an example of lore. you still haven't done that.
02:29.53Sky2042where it isn't being used in the WoW sense
02:30.26Zealfor Spells? Er.. the one in RotH, where they age the orcs through warlock magic.
02:30.29Zealofc it doesn't exist
02:30.34Zealbecause no one has made it
02:30.36Sky2042yes it does
02:30.44Sky2042We call it in wow "Life Drain"
02:30.44Zealthere's tons form the RPG though, which no one has ever added
02:30.54Zealno, that's speculation
02:31.09Zealand clearly marked as such in the articles relating to it.
02:32.26Zealall articles in spells will still existing there btw, jsut so you know. it's supposed to be all encompassing, from game-neutral viewpoint.
02:32.54*** join/#wowwiki A2` (
02:33.23Zealso you'll see the spells there, and the WoW Spells cat for example, would be a subcat of it, so you can get to the specific ones you want.
02:33.46Zeali've not listed that on the structure atm, because i can only write so much :p

02:47.14Sky2042_and, zeal, you do realize only single catting is plain stupid?
02:47.30Zealno, it's not. it's very important.
02:47.40Zealshouldn't be double catting unless there's a need to do so
02:47.49Zealit's the reason why lore is a complete mess.
02:48.22Zeal*part of the reason
02:48.37Sky2042_well, i mean, eg, [[Cat:Fel Horde]] being in [[Cat:Horde]] as well as [[Cat:Factions]]
02:49.07Zealit's got nothing to do with [[Cat:Horde]] as a faction. it's a seperate faction.
02:49.52Zealany other form of link than parent<->child would have to be explained in a seperate cat or the article itself, which there is.
02:51.56Sky2042I fear for where this is going...
02:52.05Sky2042Placing items in lore makes no sense
02:52.11Sky2042just... doesn't.
02:52.38Zealit makes sense for items as i explained for spells
02:52.51Zealjust now wow item's themselves in a gameplay context
02:52.53Sky2042but everything in cat:items /is/ a wow item
02:53.04Zealthat's why you'll seem them also seperate and in both cats.
02:53.07Zealfor now
02:53.56Zealas i said, moving the existing structure into place, then moving cat contents to correct cats and creating new cats as needed for the rest of it.
02:54.30Zealotherwise i'll end up doubling up on cats as i'm moving stuff between them.
02:54.48Zealhm.. languages, didn't think of that one. :)
02:55.55Zealbtw, i'm going back to plants and creatures ;)
02:56.44Sky2042Oh good
02:57.25Sky2042anyway, I disagree with the premise that multiple cats per category is a bad idea, on that having multiple cats per category aids in navigating to related items.
02:57.48Zealin related, yes.
02:58.51Sky2042so then, as an example, how would you cat Cat:Blackrock Depths NPCs? We've just redone all such categories into double catting; Cat:BRD and Cat:NPCs by zone.
02:59.04Zealbut when there's distant relations, there's no good reason, and it confuses the user and you loose people in the navigation. keeping some concept of flow ensures they end up where they wanted to be rather than going round in circles for a while.
02:59.37Sky2042how would you cat that? 2 parent's? or only 1?
03:00.23Zealsoemthing like wow npcs, and brd. it's a good candidate for it.
03:00.32Sky2042well, good.
03:00.38Sky2042close enough for the purpose.
03:01.03Sky2042will be back later, though you might be going to bed by then.
03:01.11Sky2042unless you pulled an allnighter...
03:01.30Zealjust want to see it cut down, so we don't have things such as the lroe cat on every cat that's in it's tree.
03:01.43Zeali really shouldn't pull one : /
03:02.02Zealbut i'll probably have to face people's wrath tomorrow if alot of things aren't moved.
03:02.47Sky2042_afkyoull end up facing them anyway, i think
03:02.56Sky2042_afkok, that's it. going now. gf will beat me

21:04.30Nebu1ai keep reading leatherwork is useless,
21:04.32Nebu1afor making
21:04.37winkillerit is
21:04.44winkillerI had 370 for ages
21:04.46winkillerthen 375
21:04.47Nebu1ais it good for making things for your own char ?
21:04.53winkillerI have 0 epic patterns
21:04.57Nebu1aor just generally awful ?
21:05.10Nebu1aso basically its only when you get epic patterns its worthwhile ?
21:05.17winkillerit's ok for levelling if you are ahead of yer level
21:05.38Nebu1aright gotcha, well i have it to level 125 at the moment,
21:05.41Nebu1aand im level 23,
21:05.54Nebu1abut im wondering whether its worth carrying on,
21:05.56winkillerbut normally you are behind, especially from 200 on
21:05.58RemiehdniwWhat class do you play?
21:06.08winkillerwell, it's not that bad imho
21:06.34Nebu1aim just worrying its useless for making overall,
21:06.38RemiehdniwAre you planning to make a PvE or a PvP character?
21:06.42winkillerdepends totally on your server
21:06.44Nebu1aPvP char,
21:06.54Nebu1ai guess so, shortage of leatherworkers helps at a guess ?
21:07.29winkillerI see no real moneymaker
21:07.36winkillerunless you looove to grind at 70
21:07.42winkillerand get nethers en masse
21:07.45Nebu1aright gotcha, so is it worthwhile changing ?
21:07.54RemiehdniwYes, I think it is
21:08.03winkillerI'd get mining to make money
21:08.11RemiehdniwYou should change to engineering and mining/skinning.
21:08.21winkillerno, just mining/skinning
21:08.33RemiehdniwHe's planning to make a PvP character
21:08.34winkillerlevelling back to 124 when you are 70 takes a few hours/gold then
21:08.53RemiehdniwEngineering is useful in PvP.
21:08.58winkilleryes, at 70
21:09.00winkilleror for twinks
21:09.11winkillernot for here and there a bg while levelling
21:09.16RemiehdniwI am neither, and I found it quite useful
21:09.39RemiehdniwThough I had ample supplies ;)
21:09.40winkillerI'd never ever level a first char per realm without 2 gathering
21:09.45Nebu1ahow is skinning alone worthwhile ? just selling leather blocks ?
21:09.54Nebu1awouldnt i be better off with mining plus blacksmithing ?
21:10.10winkillernot at all
21:10.14RemiehdniwNot for money making
21:10.26winkillers1 weaps >>>>>>>>>> BS
21:10.30winkilleresp when low on money

21:12.15winkillererr, I meant skinning
21:12.30Nebu1ai have to admit im tempted,

21:12.40RemiehdniwFor Glory, Gold and God and Wowwiki! What do you think about this slogan?
21:12.56winkillerit sucks
21:13.06Nebu1ashouldnt have two "ands" gramatically,
21:13.13winkillerNebu1a: it's handy. and I got a nice BoP LW pattern at 375
21:13.59Nebu1aso basically leatherworking is good if the drops work out for you,
21:13.59Nebu1aif you dont get pattern drops its a waste of time ?
21:13.59RemiehdniwNebula: I know, but it looks better than just GGG and Wowwiki
21:13.59winkillernot totally worth iz. but i already ghad 300 LW at 60 pre-tbc
21:14.20Nebu1aahh i cant decide what to do,
21:14.32Nebu1ai bought some leather being lazy so i need to re-coup about 1.7G in general

21:14.50Nebu1ajust made that back though got a "dark leather tunic" drop which i sold a couple for about 80G
21:15.21Nebu1ais Skin/Mining the biggest money maker then overall ?
21:15.22winkillerNebu1a: 1 stack of 20 copper bar is normally 2g
21:16.10Nebu1aahh im stuck in two minds now,
21:16.30Nebu1ai can see how it'd work out well, just hoarding mats,
21:16.45Nebu1adoes it become annoying because you have to constantly be grinding to use your professions ?
21:16.56Nebu1aat least my skinning provides my lwork upgrades ?
21:16.57RemiehdniwQuestion! What is a "Winnie"?
21:17.28*** join/#wowwiki mesh04 (
21:21.17Nebu1aAnyone else an opinion on profs for making ?
21:21.29winkillerherb/alch is also easy
21:22.47RemiehdniwAlchemy isn't that great any more
21:23.29Nebu1ayeah just trying to read around,
21:23.43Nebu1ai think Skin / Mining could be the combo
21:24.01winkilleralch is piss easy to get to 75
21:24.09winkillerand with a bit of farming it's decent monexy
21:24.14winkillerfor not much work
21:24.22winkiller*to 375
21:24.36Nebu1awouldnt i need herbalism with alch though ?
21:24.41Nebu1ato get the herbs in the first place ?
21:26.01Nebu1awin ?
21:27.52twsXNo, "win" would be if anyone of you can tell me the name of those scriptable unit frames.
21:28.21winkillerdefine scriptable
21:28.32winkillerpitbull may be named scriptable
21:29.00twsXI never really checked them out, b ut you kinda have to write a script with positioning and color definitions, etc. to actually use them.
21:29.42twsXSome guy recommended it to me and it looked kinda interesting, but i forgot the name. :/
21:30.00twsXPretty much lets you define what your unit frames look like all the way to the last detail
21:30.30twsXSort of like DAB used to do, but with a scripted config, not with a GUI.
21:36.44twsXoooooh, noo, the dots :)

23:07.20Zealprunes crappy items?
23:23.02pcjwow, that doesn't sound like a name for a woman
23:25.05Polarinapcj: Because The Armoury is better:

23:26.15Polarinapcj: I'm not American!
23:26.23pcjHah, but that's the name of the site
23:26.34Zealshe's an post-op transexual ;)
23:26.51PolarinaZeal: British, not an post-op transexual!
23:27.47Zeali was refering to Dwane Wertle :p
23:28.14PolarinaZeal: My mistake. :)
23:28.18pcjso you're pre-op then polarina?
23:28.59Polarinapcj: Ð
23:30.05pcjthe question is clear, your avoidance of answering indicates some truth to it
23:31.15PolarinaWhatever that means.
23:31.40Zealmeans pcj wants you to have his babies
23:32.08RelentlessI think there is a language barrier.  UK English and US English.
23:32.37Polarina"What is an intersection?"
23:33.15RelentlessIt's a freeway!
23:33.28PolarinaRelentless: We call it a crossroad.
23:34.30RelentlessI had a gps device that I set to UK english voice, as I like the accent.  But it always clled the freeway a motorway and many other things like that.
23:34.49RelentlessI got lost often.
23:34.51PolarinaGood night. :)
