    Spring Break is Now

    April 7, 2017 by Zandrae

    I'm now officially on spring break. My classes this semester are challenging and they've sucked up a bit of my time.

    On the agenda for this upcoming week I've got some wiki-related tings and some non-wiki related things.

    • I'd like to pound out the criteria for featured articles and for example articles, and how much gold we're going to award folks. I may need people who have gold on Alliance side who need gold on Hordeside to help me out at some point, as my funds are extremely lopsided.
      • Something I know we want for the character profiles, for both featured and examples, is absolutely no copyright violations.
    • Assist with sweeps with regards to unused images, pages people have tagged for deletion, etc.
    • Do all of my homework for the rest of the se…

    I am on spring break this week, which means that I will be able to set time aside to continue the archival process and updates on the wiki.

    With 2017, our archive space cutoff year has moved to 2014 in order to keep a three year timespan of current content.

    We are working slowly because there is a lot of older content on the wiki.

    Those with questions about archive space should post a message to my wall or to Zandrae's wall after referring to the following URL: 

    http://wyrmrest.wikia.com/wiki/Wra_Wiki_Archives

    If you are returning to the wiki after a hiatus, please message myself or Zandrae before assuming that your older content was deleted. It is, very likely, sitting safely in our archive space which is reachable at the above URL.

    • Done. Check your articles to make sure that you do not need to replace an infobox.**

    • This item will be an ongoing task as the back end is restructured.

    • I still need input on this.
      • I am leaning toward dropping "Alliance" and "Horde" and simply having the classes listed as Warlock, Warrior, Monk, etc. 

    • Horde Priest was just completed, I am working backwards from Warlock. The class lists are done. Now the main Alliance, Horde, and Neutral character pages need to be done, as well as Guilds.

    • Category:Templates Under Review is the category we are using for this.

      • A proposed archive space page is in my sandbox.

    As we approach being all nice and cleaned up, one of the goals is to populate the Wiki with new and current information. One way we can do that is to encourage returning and new players to make character profiles.

    One thing we also need is some model articles to go in our guidelines. We also want to start featuring articles of users from time to time.


    We'd like to have 2-3 character profiles that we link to from our guidelines documents, particularly, we want to showcase pages made by people who aren't the admin but regular users. Why not use admin profiles? The administration/mods are generally not here to promote ourselves or toot our own horns. So let's promote you, because this wiki is all about, you.

    We are looking for individuals who ha…

    I'm seeing a lot of questions related to creativity and the Moonguard wiki(s) with regards to page design, infoboxes, dividers, and icons, among other things. 

    I feel like it's obvious, but I'm going to state it here:  

    This is not Moonguard's wiki, this is the wiki for Wyrmrest Accord. 

    We are rebuilding the foundation of the wiki.  This means standardizing the look and feel of the wiki.  



    (1) We're designing and testing things like infoboxes to work with the new portability and design of Fandom/Wikia, and with the site CSS, which is being re-coded.

    (2) While we're doing this design and testing, imported and exotic formats and boxes will be broken because they are not designed to work with the new code. 

    (3) Not everyone is a expert or coherent…

    • Comb through Category list and eliminate redundant categories, misspellings, and place the correct category template tags on Category pages.
      • This first item will be an ongoing task as the back end is restructured.

    Archival Process begins

    November 15, 2016 by Zandrae

    We have gotten the Archive and Archive Talk namespaces for the wiki and are slowly and systematically moving very old documents to the archive.

    Very old documents are ones that have not been updated since 2011 or 2012. Many of the folks who made the pages are no longer around and it would be nice to have the wiki be current.

    At the moment we're not sure if the wiki will automatically link to the space when hitting the random button. A ticket is already in asking if they can exclude that There'll be a link placed... somewhere, that will link to the archive categories that will have every event, character profile, misc thing, guild, etc on there.

    By moving things to archive instead of removing them, we preserve a whole bunch of creative writing…

    Sourcing and Server Canon

    November 15, 2016 by Zandrae

    Good evening,

    Going to discourse on some stuff, getting feedback for official policies and such.


    I've noticed a lot of material on this Wiki has been copied over from Moon Guard's wiki, like laws and stuff, without any attribution. Wikia has a policy that if you take stuff from other sources you must properly attribute them. Please cite your sources, including a back link to the original. These should include warnings that people aren't required to opt in if they are tagged with such on the MG page.

    Please do this even if you created the original document over on the wiki because it seems like a lot of people who copy stuff over, even as originators, do not keep their WRA mirrors up to date. People may want to see what's most recent.

    Also, you m…

    I am coding an infobox for geographical areas.

    We have updated Template:Infobox_character for all character articles and Template:Infobox_org for all organization articles.   All other templates being used on character and organization articles are being flagged for deletion. If you would like fields and other attributes added to the infoboxes which have been updated, please comment at Forum:Character_Infoboxes_and_More.  We are welcoming feedback on what belongs in these boxes.

    Progress Report I

    November 6, 2016 by Zandrae
    • User:RiaSunhammer and I have gone through the categories and trimmed them a bit.
    • The skin on the wiki has been changed. The link titles and other gold colors might go a wee bit darker. When the dust settles I'll post a table with the new colors.
    • Infobox CSS has been tweaked. It should look harmonious with the rest of the skin instead of jarringly different. We still need feedback on these infoboxes, what stuff should be there, what shouldn't.
    • Creating a new page with a template automatically drops in a character boilerplate sheet.
    • When creating a new page, there are now links at the top of the editing window that will pull various templates into the editing space. We do want feedback on what goes in there, especially for the nonexistent story …

    User:RiaSunhammer pointed out that something exploded on the front page with the CSS tweaks or that the page has had a problem all along with there being a lack of space between the right bar and left bar of the front page.

    It's hard to edit cascading stylesheets on wikia because they don't actually let you edit the real CSS, you can just insert your own code into an override sheet. I've been making webpages for a long time. I started making webpages in summer of 1993, I learned HTML in a single setting, but I stopped really keeping up with the code side of the web before the implementation of xml, divs, and cascading stylesheets. I can infer what the code is doing by looking at it.

    Editing other people's code can be somewhat difficult if th…

    Here is the infobox for organizations:

    http://wyrmrest.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Infobox_org

    This is what we need to be using for Guilds, Houses, Non-Guild organizations, and so forth. 

    By converting to this box, it will be easier to keep a standardized look across the wiki when it is updated and made portable.

    Administrative Agenda

    November 4, 2016 by Zandrae

    So I successfully adopted the wiki, what now?

    Here is a list of things that need doing, and additional comments on things other users can help with.

    • Unlock the homepage and update the Wra net site link to wra org and fix the forum links. -- Done
    • Figure out portable infobox and how to make them not look like ass -- Done
    • Change the theme colors slightly for reasons -- Done but may tweak more.
    • Update the standard infoboxe content
      • How you can help: There is a thread in the watercooler asking people's opinions on what belongs on an infobox. Forum:Character_Infoboxes_and_More
    • Update page creation guidelines, create a boilerplate people can copy from, look into perhaps making a boilerplate automatically pop up in the wiki page creation.
      • Added templates in ar…

    What am I doing here?

    November 3, 2016 by RiaSunhammer

    I'm placing information on player characters, guilds I am involved with (and have permission to post) in the wiki. 

    I am also helping to clean up articles, tag articles for cleanup, and standardize templates used for character pages. 

    We have a lot of templates used on our character pages. Some of these are really hard to read!

    I'm also adding categories where needed and helping to correct words to American English. That means the following: 

    • Organize/Organization, not Organise/Organisation
    • Color, not Colour
    • Harbor, not Harbour
    • Apologize, not Apologise

    and so forth.

    If you have questions, please ping me on my talk page. 

    Thanks!

    Wyrmrest Accord is a Roleplay server on World of Warcraft. We typically use our official realm forum for communication.

    This wiki has not really had an active sysop in a while. The administrator had been asking other users to take over and it does not look like anyone ever did. There has been some vandalism, some drama, and other such things here over the years and it is likely too exhausting for one lone person to deal with.

    Other players asked me recently why I had not taken over this wiki yet. I'll get to that later, for now I want to write about things that pertain to this place, to the community, etc.


    Currently the WRA user base uses a number of different and flawed methods of getting information out to each other. A wiki as an option to…

    This pond set off the beaten path of the forest was beautiful. Birds sang their afternoon song as a brief waterfall trickled melodically into the water. If her mind could stop wandering to that awful nightmare she suffered last night, she might even be able to enjoy this. Tilting her head back into the sparkling water to rinse it clean, she heard something moving carefully through the brush as if trying not to call attention to itself. Taking a deep breath, Faebelle submerged herself completely down under the water.

    Looking up through the shimmering pool, she saw a shadow stalk the bank of the water as a large bear emerged from the over brush. S…

    The sky fell dark.

    August 20, 2011 by Faebelle

    So today as I laced my boots up to brace for the knee deep snows surrounding Everlook, I heard a fel cry on the wind. Like a shriek tearing the clouds, it gave me shivers down my spine. Before actually seeing the horizon, I knew whatever it was, it was not human. Peering out the cold stone doorway of the local shop I was visiting, I saw the sky darkened and the clouds took on a deep reddish hue. Lifting my skirts to tip toe through the soft snow into the town clearing, I could see everything from the walls of the outpost. A massive dragon circled the skies in the distance raining down a fiery death on the usually tranquil hills. The mere sight set my heart thundering through my chest. Trembling, I retreated to the safety of the building I …

    For years, not much attention was given to Stormwind's fishing town of Lakeshire until it was under constant attack of the Blackrock Orcs, following the First and Second Wars of the Eastern Kingdoms. Little more attention was given to the mysterious arrival and departure of a cloaked figure, which can only be described as an old, faceless man who spoke little and gave a rather unsettling aura to those around him. The citizens of Lakeshire, at the time, gave him his distance. For no more than a week the man stayed in Lakeshire's Inn, closed up in his room, paying large sums of money for gladly given privacy. Undisturbed, he worked in complete silence, save for the odd, ghostly cries of a child drifting from his room a few times. No such pre…

    Wow it's almost been a year since I first uploaded a character sheet to Wyrmrest Accord. What a fantastic realm we have! I love it so much *bar hugs realm* but time flies!

    I've decided to try and new angle of RP - the couple RP (two toons, one account, intergrated RP story etc.) It's working out great! I love what I'm writing about Congo and his fat arsed pet Lyonessa and so you might find those pages the ones I update the most.

    Stay wonderful and thanks to all for keeping our great RP alive (keeping posting those pages because I love following them all!)

Then I removed and inserted the same picture about half a dozen times... in the one spot, no formating.... lol Why? Because *wave* I am new to wikia and am determined to make a good first impression *nods* I bring you good tidings of great joy, Internet. Other then playing online games I tend to stay away from you and technical stuff. I'm a gen-y in reverse, seriously I saw the new, well not so new it's been out for a couple of years, Word and after I saw the snazzy layout I think my heart palpitated in way I should be concerned over. Anyhow I promise to format my articles well and welcome any edits to clean up …
