Is in Area location[edit]

That's not really a good property name. Camel-case aside, it can be simplified to "Located in". —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 16:24, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

I was thinking as opposed to "Is in Zone location". I capitalized the first word since that's how they have it on the SMW help pages, and capitalized "Area" since I mean it as the term and not as a generic idea. Anyway, that was my thought process, but whatever you think is better, feel free to change it to. I don't dare get too far into playing with this property until they enable the subcategories. I was figuring it would be useful for Area pages, where they want to have a list of NPCs. It seems people are far more inclined to add the Area to the NPCs page then to add the NPC to the Area page. What do you think? I am eager to help but not particularly knowledgeable (learning as I go along, looking at examples, and reading help pages). Jauranna 22:28, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
Case of the first word doesn't matter, the usual MediaWiki first-character-ambiguity applies to properties as well (e.g. property:has game icon). In the context of this wiki, area and zone are well-defined terms (and definitely not proper nouns), so there's not really any need to capitalize them anywhere.
As for distinguishing area from zone, that shouldn't be done at the level of an individual property like this. We can use "Located in" interchangeably for areas, zones, and regions, although on NPC/object/etc. pages it should really be limited to area (because it makes the most sense). The individual area, zone, or region would have its own property "Has location type" which says whether it's an area, a zone, or a region. You would use a combination of these properties in any query where it was necessary to distinguish between areas and zones. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 22:56, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Recent new pages[edit]

Why are you adding a bunch of equipment with the prefixes? Pirate armor and others you added are already created, we don't need pages for each variation of prefix. Add the stats differences on the armors' pages. You also need to take into account that that stats are based on level, so your stats won't be the same as that item in a low or higher level of the same exact name. --Lustre Of Havoc 05:55, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

I assumed that like when I was working on cooking ingredients, they want a page for each item with a unique name. Is this not the case? And I am aware of stat differences, which is why I have given a range for these values. Jauranna 21:33, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
