Gives verbatim[edit]

We don't have to use this parameter now. We can use #arraymap so Beet, Parsnip, Rutabaga, Turnip displays how we want :D I'll probably fix it soon.--Relyk ~ talk < 09:12, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't know. All I could find were gathering node infoboxes with an additional [[ ]] on the ends. Looking at the template code, I found a built-in solution, givesverbatim :P --Clevin (talk) 09:16, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
We had similar parameters on other templates, slowly phasing out with #arraymap.--Relyk ~ talk < 11:31, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Is there an article on how they work? I wouldn't mind going back through and fixing them, but I'm only learning of #arraymap now. --Clevin (talk) 11:34, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
#arraymap is a parser function we'll implement in the {{object infobox}} template. Converted {{object infobox}} to use comma-separated list. See Clam (node) for an example ^^--Relyk ~ talk < 11:37, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Ah. Alright, I'll start working. --Clevin (talk) 11:40, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
And if you have a moment, if you could look at Herb Patch. It's a unique situation where two types exist in the world. My suggestion is the separation and use of 2 infoboxes. What do you think? --Clevin (talk) 11:46, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes, as you require a higher level sickle. Decidedly splitting by level. Probably be re-visited at a later date when a node has like 3 different versions.--Relyk ~ talk < 12:49, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Section headers[edit]

The accepted style on the wiki is to use sentence-case for section headers, e.g. "Crafting resources" is correct, not "Crafting Resources." It's not a huge problem, though, so don't worry about going back and correcting the pages you edited unless you want to.

You can find this and more guidelines codified at Guild Wars 2 Wiki:General formatting. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 12:33, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, I actually found it capitalized in Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Location formatting#Area structure, so I tried to follow it through to the articles. Of course, I'll go back and change them all. --Clevin (talk) 12:37, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, that never got fixed.--Relyk ~ talk < 12:50, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Well now I'm uneasy that more of the format is obsolete/incorrect :V --Clevin (talk) 12:52, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
That's why we call them guidelines.--Relyk ~ talk < 13:02, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
If you run across any instances of things that seem to contradict the general patterns we hold, there's an easy two-step process that I always follow:
  1. Check the talk page to see if there's a reason it's different.
  2. If not, fix it! Felix Omni Signature.png 14:25, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
