Your recent changes[edit]

Hi, you have been busy. :) I have not made an exhaustive study but you may well be changing those names to names that do not actually appear in the game. For example [[Rescue Mepi's moa herd from the bandits]] has an API returned name of Rescue Mepi's moa herd from the bandit caves - potential for confusion, I think. Not too sure what should be done about it. I had hoped for an api_name = whatever in the infobox but I am not too sure. You certainly need the API names as certain functions will not work without them. --Claret (talk) 13:39, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

That is indeed interesting, i didn't check for that. I used the wiki for some API related crawling, and found those 5-10 events where the names were different in the wiki, so i figured i'd "fix" them, i suppose i should check a bit more to see if the fix is actually a fix at all D: Needs a bit more research i guess Senritsu (talk) 15:20, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I a rechecking myself now. I will get back to you. --Claret (talk) 15:22, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
The API is tied directly into the game data, so it would be very strange if a name in the API was different from what showed up in-game. The page that Claret linked was created back in October 2012, and it's more likely that the event was simply renamed - it's a rarely-seen event, so it's not surprising that no one's renamed the wiki page yet. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:45, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
He's right, sorry, shuffles off to change example page with head hung low and feeling of low self-esteem. --Claret (talk) 15:50, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

moving pages[edit]

Thank you SO MUCH for following up on your page moves and updating the links to them. There are some veteran editors here who still don't do that. >_< —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:47, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

No need to thank me for that, that kind of thing should be obvious i think :O I did stumble upon one case of wrong linking on a meta event page though, spared me from moving the page as i only had to update the link :D Senritsu (talk) 15:20, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
