New POI's[edit]

With yesterday's update I think they added some more POI's, I've found one so far in Diessa Plateau in The Wurm's Gullet. Sadly I have no clue where THIS page and the chat links comes from. I was hoping some-one who knew could check this out and post corrections? Thanks Yoe Dude (talk) 22:00, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Looks like that's all... any ideas what region does Labyrinthine Cliffs belong to? MalGalad 22:07, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, but I'm not sure this is correct... Waypoint and POI share same number? Yoe Dude (talk) 23:06, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Nah, that was copy-paste. MalGalad 23:07, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
The really sad part is, the POI I found was added maybe two updates ago! Maybe I should do new things once in a while. =) Yoe Dude (talk) 07:22, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
The really sad part is I see no POI in The Wurm's Gullet. MalGalad 07:49, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
That's not sad, it's old and blind =) I do re-check before for I enter info but not so much on talk pages.(See various discussions where I say "zone" but really mean "area" and then the whole wiki gets into the discussion.) It was North Nolan Hatchery that I found after doing the whole area, just went there to add a "location" for Claret. Oh and I think the Cliffs are located in Maguuma Jungle based on the color coded map I saw, but don't quote me on that, seeing I thought the hatchery was in Wurms Gullet. Thanks again.

Yes, Labyrinthine Cliffs are already listed as being in Maguuma. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:25, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

(Reset indent) North Nolan Hatchery was added long ago in a galaxy far far away. I add new points approximately every month.

And if Dr Ishmael have already appeared... I have an idea: what if we document vistas? Infobox can be pretty much the same as the PoI's one, we have ID->link, we can also add animation (always wanted to do so), and a walkthrough on the page describing how to reach vista... However, I'm not sure about what can serve as "canonical name". MalGalad 19:29, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

P.S. Labyrinthine Cliffs were added to the newly created Living Story category, imo it is the best option since it's temporary content.

For me, the lack of a name prevents us from making articles about individual vistas. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 19:41, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
You mean, that we do not have rights to invent names and post them on the wiki because they are not "approved by devs"/"official names"? Hmmm... what if we rewrite tables on zone pages to include links? Or having links to vistas is a stupid idea at all? MalGalad 20:42, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Not exactly - we already have unofficial names for a number of things, there's not really anything wrong with that. However, this would be making up unofficial names for an entire class of things - 266 of them, to be exact. I feel that would be going a little too far. But it would be better to get a community discussion about this. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 20:50, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Why not just make some kind of table on the map article instead of separate pages for all of them? MadMaxx (talk) 21:08, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Vistas[edit]

I'm starting to add vistas to these lists, since we know their IDs. In terms of making up names for them, I'm attempting to name them in terms of what they show, not necessarily where they are located. Thus, of the 2 vistas located in Plaza of Melandru, I named the northern one "The Crown Pavilion Vista" because it shows of the pavilion, not the plaza. (Just now I noticed that it was already named that way on the area's page, so whoo!) Some of them I name from memory, others I'm actually running out and viewing them. In either case, I'm probably not getting them all perfect, so anyone should feel free to improve on them. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 17:39, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

How to get Living Story Season 4 Map Chat Links[edit]

If I knew how to pull the data I would ! Separ (talk) 15:54, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

As in for Istan and Sandswept? Try Widget:Map table. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:48, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
Huh we were missing the entire crystal desert. Added all 7x maps. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:56, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
