Talk:Add New 4e Power

I have discovered an issue with the "Add or edit" radio button under "Add New 4e Power". When you replace "MyPower" in the text box with the name of your new power (for example, "Frigid Cyclone") and click the radio button, you are not directed to a text form to write the wikitext of the power. Instead, you are directed to a page that says "Add Form:4e Power: Frigid Cyclone (4e Power)" (again, "Frigid Cyclone" is the example power to be created) with a preexisting power box already below it, called "Blast of the Ancestors" (a "'vorgal' racial power"). If a user truly wants to create a new power, they must first click the "Show preview" radio button, which redirects to the appropriate text field.
What is the method by which we can alter the form so that it works properly? The origin of the "Blast of the Ancestors" power is the Vorgal (4e Race) page, where a link to the "Blast of the Ancestors" racial power is found under Racial Traits. (If you click on that link, which oddly says "1", you come to a page called "Form:Form:4e Power" which again shows the "Blast of the Ancestors" power box.) I don't know what happened, and until I get your input I don't want to touch it because I don't know the proper method for fixing the system (blank the form? Delete the form and recreate?). I suspect that the creator of the "vorgal" race somehow accidentally altered the very power creation form itself, instead of creating a new power.
I'm going to use the workaround for now. --Ofidian 02:00, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
- See also Talk:DnD Flaws#Flaw Form. Also, I added the "Show preview" thing you mentioned. I hadn't thought of that. This should be fixed eventually. --Green Dragon 13:37, 1 January 2011 (MST)
Only Power Lists?
I'm not sure how this page is supposed to work since it doesn't actually allow you to make singular new powers? All I see is the button to make the new power lists and some button for OGL content? I don't find it very intuitive, that there isn't a simple input for making a new power page.--Yanied (talk) 12:13, 27 September 2020 (MDT)
