Trying to fix the recipe section. If anyone can figure out why it's insistent on using the ID 9176 ([&CtgjAQA=]) rather than the correct ID I inserted, 74712 ([&AgHYIwEA]). I also dont know why it has [[{{{sheet}}}]]. Chillman (talk) 10:00, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

The id looks like a bug with the template. edit: I think what went wrong is that the id is from the recipe sheet. We need the actual recipe id from the crafting menu. Otherwise such big numbers aren't supported by the recipe chat links. Tyndel (talk) 10:07, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Ah I see. I'm new to editing this wiki, thought I'd put my part in as I'm currently completing Twilight III: Dusk. How could I find the recipe id instead of the recipe sheet id? Chillman (talk) 10:22, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
I added the correct id, I found it on But to answer your question: Find the recipe in the list on the left of the crafting window, then type in chat: /wiki <Shift+Left-click the recipe> Tyndel (talk) 10:35, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Awesome. Thanks! Oh - and thanks for uploading a better version of the original icon - I wasn't sure how to capture it besides screenshotting and as you can imagine, it wasn't particularly neat. I'm assuming you used for that too? I'll keep that in mind if I make any new articles. This is fun! I think I might do some more work on the wiki in the future. Was this the correct place to comment questions if I have any when creating pages? Chillman (talk) 10:39, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
For the icons I use gw2browser, it's a type of 'datamining'. The icons from dulfy (which in are turn provided by the API from ArenaNet) are usually good enough, but sometimes they are not in 64x64 resolution, then I have to get them directly from the .dat file.

Interesting. Thanks Chillman (talk) 10:54, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
