Artifact[edit]

I have created an Artifact, but the words are not showing up. Can you look into it? Thanks!!

I don't see anything wrong with how the page is being displayed. Can you be more specific? --Green Dragon (talk) 01:05, 24 August 2019 (MDT)
The page had comment tags around all the content; I removed them so that now the page displays normally. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 03:45, 24 August 2019 (MDT)
Thanks!!

Permission?[edit]

Heya, IDK if you care about this stuff but just in case, is it okay if I use your user page's setup for my user page? Here is what it'll look like. --Cosmos (talk) 08:55, 29 August 2019 (MDT)

Fine with me. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:31, 29 August 2019 (MDT)
Thanks! --Cosmos (talk) 11:04, 30 August 2019 (MDT)

Other Site[edit]

I know, I simply stated the other site so that neither side can cite me for plagiarizing my own work. It was a matter of covering my own rear in regards to the content I created and had put on both here and the other place.

I edited a newer message with no mention, but simply stated it's the same username so that Moderators would know it is me with my own work.

Taranil The God[edit]

I created a new God, Taranil, but it does not show anything I wrote. Can you please look into it, thanks.

-- Me0wFish (talk) 21:15, 30 August 2019 (MDT) Me0wFish

The task is done Meowfish, just remember to get rid of <-- and --> when creating a new deity, race, ect. as stuff between the lines doesn't show on the page itself once you saved your edit.--Blobby383b (talk) 21:21, 30 August 2019 (MDT)
Ok, thank you!

You scared the ever living[edit]

SHIT out of me dude lmao, but ya thanks for fixing that for me (in reference to my wip surged) on a side note seeing "this page has been deleted" scared the fuck out of me until i realized what was up -CmC

Cant make an account[edit]

Every time i try to create an account i get the same message. Theres a problem with my login session. I do not understand whats going on with that and its really frustrating me. I do the captcha and the puzzle so i cant figure out what the problem might be. Please help if possible.

-PrimalCreator

You are getting this message consistently? Very strange. I'll forward this to Blue Dragon.
In the meantime, if you let me know your desired username and an email with which to privately contact you, I could create the account for you and email you a temporary password (with the expectation that you'd change the password after logging in). Would you like me to do this? — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:17, 3 September 2019 (MDT)
Absolutely, the desired username is PrimalCreator and the email is cord118@gmail.com
The account is created. You should have gotten an email with a temporary random password. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:55, 3 September 2019 (MDT)

Thank you and i did, ill log in right now.

Moving A Page Back[edit]

Hey Geodude, sorry to ask, but could you move the Martial Adept (3.5e Alternate Class Feature) page back to Martial Adept? I only realized after I moved it that the original naming scheme was correct as noted by all the page names found after this point on the 3.5e Alternate Class Features page. --Blobby383b (talk) 20:07, 8 September 2019 (MDT)

Deletion of comments by a troll[edit]

Good day Geodude,
Having a hard time finding a deletion policy about removing comments from a internet Troll. Someone I know in the physical word has taken it upon themselves to clog up one of my pages with trolly behaviour using a burner account, and no real intent to contribute to the content. What is the policy on removing comments like that?--Aethim (talk) 09:05, 13 September 2019 (MDT)

Are you talking about Pit Fighter (5e Class)? If so, I’d hesitate to call that user a “troll” as they bring up legitimate issues with that class as far as I can tell. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 10:16, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
The first statement by the troll should say it all. But if you look at the screen name, timestamp of when the user was made and compare it to when the page was created, and that the account has not contributed to anything else you can see that it is meant for harassment. Not actually to give constructive input. I have also confirmed who the troll is in physical world, and their intent. Anyway I have requested a speedy delete, I would be more comfortable contributing to a resource site that has better tools to deal with harassment.--Aethim (talk) 12:26, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
The first comment is a bit uncalled for (particularly the last bit). Users who focus and talk only on one page/discussion are not totally unfamiliar on the wiki since many people may come and may fixate on one particular thing they like. The fact that this person continued the conversation seemingly in some earnest as far as I see on the talk page doesn't quite scream "troll," though maybe a bit ham-handed in trying to address what they felt were legitimate problems about the class. I have no idea what information you may have gotten on the individual in real life though. --Yanied (talk) 12:59, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
Hopefully Geodude doesn't mind, we have tools to deal with harassment, but it is hard to handle a situation when we aren't fully aware of what is happening. Earlier Geodude had to assume the article being "trolled" by your accounts. Can you also refrain from calling another user a troll? Remarks like this are not helpful. Could you explain what your issue is, and with whom, and what page? Admins could more properly help you if we understand things more. Please be patient as we all have lives too, and want to help as soon as we can.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   13:05, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
My apologies if my last comment sounded like a slight at D&D Wiki, it wasn't. The situation is just getting frustrating. The person has since taken to other means to harass me, but on those platforms I can just block them and its all done. Eventually they will get bored and leave. I am just requesting the page be deleted since the wiki has no way of blocking users. And yes the page in question is Pit Fighter (5e Class) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aethim (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts.
I don't see that user's comments as "harassment," but maybe there's context from another site that we're missing. It seems like the other user has acted mostly civilly throughout your interactions, as Yanied said above, so at present no action will be taken. If things deteriorate, then we will look at discipline, but right now there's not much we can do. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:09, 13 September 2019 (MDT)
I have responded on the talk page, and I hope that this should keep the discussion on topic and not be persomal for you anymore. --Green Dragon (talk) 02:20, 14 September 2019 (MDT)

Wiki Cookie[edit]

Choco chip cookie.jpg WikiCookie                            
I can not count the number of times where you have been very helpful to both me and other users by fixing page issues, deleting spam, and doing other thankless maintenance jobs yourself and with your bot. As such, I would like to properly thank you for always being such a solid support rock by giving you a cookie. Blobby383b (talk) 20:28, 10 October 2019 (MDT)

Tables[edit]

Hey, so I'm creating a Demon Lord and wanted to create a madness table for them like the other Demon Lords. How do I create a Table?-Dinomaster337 (talk) 08:00, 21 October 2019 (MDT)

Geodude probably will be able to help you out better with this but here's a page that you could try and start on to figure out what you need to do to make your table. --Cosmos (talk) 06:13, 22 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks.-Dinomaster337 (talk) 07:00, 23 October 2019 (MDT)

Sorry I didn't reply to this; I usually either refer to Help:Table or copy-paste a table from another page and edit that to fit my needs. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:55, 25 October 2019 (MDT)

Thanks. I'm trying to copy and paste a table onto the page, but I'm struggling to make it work.-Dinomaster337 (talk) 07:00, 1 November 2019 (MDT)
The creature I'm referring to is Scylla. I'm not sure what's wrong, but maybe you could take a look.-Dinomaster337 (talk) 10:28, 2 November 2019 (MDT)
Part of your issue was that you were using pipes ( | ) inside a template. Since templates use that character to define parameters, the page thought you were defining the "class" parameter as part of the 5e creature template. If you need to use a pipe character inside a template, you can use {{!}} instead.
I've managed to get the table to appear, but I'm not sure why the template isn't alternating between a green highlight and no highlight, instead having no highlight on anything. I'll see if anyone in the Discord is able to help with that. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:10, 2 November 2019 (MDT)
Thanks Geodude :)-Dinomaster337 (talk) 17:42, 2 November 2019 (MDT)

5e Player-Character Preload[edit]

Hi, long time no see! Haven't really been active on Discord cause of parents, and just started getting back onto D&D Wiki (mainly for organizing details on my campaign though). Speaking of that, I wanted to ask about the 5e Player-Character Preload, in the italics near the top, below the character's name, it says 1st-level, but if a number greater than 3 is inputted into the |level= line of the page, it does not display the level (only "-level" instead of "20th-level" or something like that). Are you able to fix this, or find someone to fix this? I would originally go to the person who first made this, but that's Guy and he left, didn't he? So yeah. Thanks! --Cosmos (talk) 06:42, 24 October 2019 (MDT)

There's a spot for CR. Change 1 to whatever level you want the thing to be and it'll change the level.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   07:20, 24 October 2019 (MDT)
I've already done that, and if it's a number above 3, it doesn't show. Here's an example. It says Medium humanoid (dwarf, mountain), chaotic neutral, -level barbarian instead of Medium humanoid (dwarf, mountain), chaotic neutral, 20th-level barbarian. --Cosmos (talk) 06:00, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
I've sorted this. You may need to click "refresh" at the top of the page to see the changes on your character. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:53, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks! --Cosmos (talk) 11:13, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
Wow, that was an interesting edit. Where'd you pick up or learn that editing knowledge?   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   21:05, 28 October 2019 (MDT)
The previous time I edited the creature template, I asked about that principle in the Fire Emblem wiki's Discord, and I applied the same principle here. It was helpful so that we no longer have to deal with annoying things like Category:Monstrositie Type or "swarm of Medium undeads." — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 22:48, 28 October 2019 (MDT)
How do you access the template anyways? I couldn't figure out how to so I could try and see what the problem was. --Cosmos (talk) 06:30, 30 October 2019 (MDT)
Here it is Cosmos Template:5e Creature but it is protected.
I'm still not sure what you did with the template. I see the edit, but just don't get it :p   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   07:54, 30 October 2019 (MDT)
I replaced the previous #ifeq function in the template with a #switch function. {{#switch: {{{cr}}}|1=1st|2=2nd|3=3rd|{{{cr}}}th}} This means: If field "cr" equals 1, output "1st". If cr is 2, output "2nd". If cr is 3, output "3rd". If cr is anything else, output the value for cr and add "th" to the end (eg, if cr is 4, output "4th"). — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 11:00, 30 October 2019 (MDT)
And whats does the ifreq function do? (sorry, I could Googling the answer too I suppose)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   06:59, 31 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks, BSFM. And wow, that's a dense page. --Cosmos (talk) 11:14, 31 October 2019 (MDT)

Some input[edit]

Hi, I'm rather new here, but I started making a few things a couple of days ago. I was wondering if you would mind taking a look at it, giving me a few tips as to what to change, what to add, and what to remove. I've applied for Discord verification, but that hasn't happened yet, so I'm contacting you here instead. Thanks in advance! Solomon (talk) 18:31, 4 November 2019 (MST)

Bot Building[edit]

Can you teach me how to make a bot to help out on this site? Flamestarter (talk) 20:42, 21 November 2019 (MST)Flamestarter

I just use MediaWiki's PyWikiBot. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 10:16, 22 November 2019 (MST)
