Signature Tests[edit source]

  • Here, I test what my signature looks like (because for some reason, it's bugged and won't show a preview)

    • (Here no longer lies bad sig, RIPReally buggy signature was here before...)
      • Wow that is BUGGED! I am going to remove that because it takes up too much space...

    Purchasing Anvils[edit source]

    You purchased the Lead Anvil from the Merchant? Are both the Iron Anvil and Lead Anvil available for purchase at the same time? Or does it depend on the ore generated on that world? – Ferretwings (talk) 15:47, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

    It is chosen at random, the anvil type in the shop resets every day I think —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 14:36, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

    Presents[edit source]

    In Mobile version Mobile version, Presents dropped from Present Mimics cannot be opened? – Ferretwings (talk) 13:50, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    This was definitely the case before, but I am not sure if Present Mimic presents behave like this currently. I have a mobile device at my disposal so I will check if presents still behave like this. Awesome diamonds (talk) 13:56, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    Currently fighting Frost Moon Awesome diamonds (talk) 14:02, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    Interesting... The Present Mimic does not drop anything except hearts and coins! I will edit the page to show only console/desktop for the present drop. However, the 3DS version is older and may need confirmation as to whether the present furniture drops from Present Mimics. Awesome diamonds (talk) 14:06, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    Did you change your date to Christmas? – Ferretwings (talk) 14:18, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    December 21, 2017 Awesome diamonds (talk) 16:52, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    So, other enemies are dropping presents, but not the Present Mimic? – Ferretwings (talk) 16:54, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    I have managed to find 3 of them, but none of them dropped presents yet... I'll keep looking Awesome diamonds (talk) 17:18, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    Sorry didn't answer your question; the enemies are dropping presents. I suspect that the Present Mimic will drop a present with the chance of any other enemy eventually, but I don't think it's a 100% chance. Awesome diamonds (talk) 17:20, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

    Easter[edit source]

    Once Lepus has been defeated, Diseaster Bunnies and Corrupt Bunnies will no longer drop the Suspicious Looking Egg? – Ferretwings (talk) 23:30, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

    Diseaster Bunnies will but it seems Corrupt Bunnies won't Awesome_Diamonds 23:31, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
    Ok. If Lepus is defeated, will Diseaster Bunnies stop spawning during Easter? (I'm just trying to make sense of the Seasonal event page) – Ferretwings (talk) 23:54, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
    Yes Awesome_Diamonds 23:56, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

    Frost Staff[edit source]

    An editor wrote "On the mobile version, the frost staff is Obtainable before hardmode, as it is dropped by ice bats."

    Can you confirm? – Ferretwings (talk) 16:53, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

    I do know that I have never had an ice staff drop from an ice bat in my time playing Terraria, but I am not entirely sure, since I may have just been unlucky. I would put a {verify} on it. Awesome_Diamonds 23:43, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

    Template:Template[edit source]

    Not to burst your bubble, but…
    I noticed that you were working on a template linking template and I just wanted to notify you of {{tl}}. It seems to function identically to what you were aiming for (based on the current documentation, at least) so I thought you might not know of it yet. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 21:14, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

    Thanks! Should I delete the Template:Template then? Or would it be a destructive edit —Awesome_Diamonds 21:16, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
    It's probably best to make it a redirect since {template} also works as a name for {tl} as well. :^) 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 21:25, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

    Use of eicons|Ocram[edit source]

    I noticed you using {{eicons|Ocram}} on some pages as, what I'm guessing is, a shortcut to adding mobile+console+3DS icons. It seems like a way of creating a mess in the long run, and confusing other editors, some of which probably don't even know what Ocram is. Any particular reason for using it? 86.115.19.146 19:42, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

    I've now created a Console-Mobile-3ds icon. I agree, using eicons in that way can be very confusing to editors, lol! Myself included! ;) – Ferretwings (talk) 20:26, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
    Sorry for the late reply, I was using eicons|Ocram so that when 1.3 came out the icons would fade out one by one, good idea creating 3DS console mobile icon—ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 15:48, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
    But Ocram won't be loosing it's exclusivity status when update hits? It might just get some sort of oldgen/removed flag(I haven't been paying attention to proposed edits page, sorry) which eicons doesn't have yet. And even if template won't add icons, template call itself would still need to be removed from wikitext(which I suppose could be automated)?
    Anyway, anything is fine by me(not that anyone needs my approval) as long as you know what you're doing, I was just wondering if it was a personal shortcut or an accidental copy/paste or something because I haven't noticed it used that way before. Sorry for calling attention to it, and taking everyone's time again. 86.115.19.146 16:38, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
    No, it’s fine, it was a good thing you brought this to the communiy's attention. I might end up adding an <!-- Invisible Note --> so that people will not get confused. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟ (talk) 17:21, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
    Update: An Invert param was since added to Eicons and all other dependent Exclusive templates, allowing for the removal of this Ocram usage. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 20:58, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

    Um, dude, that's *my* sandbox.[edit source]

    The point of starting that guide in my own sandbox (rather than in-place, or even in the global sandbox), was so I'd be able to do a first pass without worrying about other editors. I'm not mad (especially since your edits happened to be between my runs, so no harm done), but someone else might well have taken offense. As it happens, I've now taken that almost as far as I can (because I haven't done Plantera myself yet), so once I flesh out the last couple of bit, I'll move it into guidespace. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 23:27, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

    Got it, I'll do the stuff when it’s in guidespace —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:58, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

    Eversions[edit source]

    Not sure if this is what you were going for with {{Eversions}}, but have a look at my attempt at it. It's currently at {{test2}}, use Special:Permalink/742283 if it was reverted/edited since.

  • {{test2|Ocram}} -->
    {{test2|Lepus}} -->
    {{test2|Turkor the Ungrateful}} -->
    {{test2|Moon Lord}} -->
    {{test2|Thread}} -->

    {{test2|Torch}} --> // Not quite the result I'm expecting but probably not template's fault.

  • 86.115.19.146 18:10, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

    Right now eversions is still somewhat broken, if target page doesn't have 3DS content, i2 evaluates to error message and things just falls through #switch to defaults. You're also declaring #default wrong, causing #switch to not output anything in those cases.
    {{eversions|1.3.0.1}} --> Desktop version Desktop version and Console version Console version // i2 = Expression error: Missing operand for +.
    And even though this isn't a likely use case, still:
    {{eversions|Headless Horseman Banner}} --> Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and 3DS version 3DS version
    86.115.19.146 05:15, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

    I’ll make sure to look at test2, it seems as if the code is pretty sound. I knew I had definitely missed something there, didn’t realize any page was desktop-3ds...
    One thing I’ll modify a little is the “and” output, because, well... let’s say code can be really annoying sometimes when it comes to punctuation and grammar —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 15:37, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
    It appears a major problem was that all of the #switch functions activated no matter what, even if the version wasn’t there. I think it’s fixed, if there’s any issues feel free to edit —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 13:41, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    Recipes[edit source]

    There is a project that I've been putting off for some time, and I'm wondering if you are just the person to take it on. You seem pretty comfortable with code, otherwise I wouldn't mention it. I've recently had an extension installed to the wiki called Cargo. It is specifically designed to create databases. I wish to begin creating a recipe database on each craftable item's page. This project will take a long time, lol, and you are always looking for ways to improve the wiki (which I appreciate), but sometimes you make my head spin! Anyway, here is a link to the extension so you can take a look at it: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Cargo I'm also going to send you an invite to a help group. If you feel it's too much, I'll understand. But our current system for storing recipes is flawed, and it's slowly been driving me nuts. – Ferretwings (talk) 06:48, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    Could you unblock your email for a day, so I can send you the link? – Ferretwings (talk) 06:55, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
    There are some wikis already using the Cargo extension. https://pillarsofeternity.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=Template:Infobox_conflict&action=edit has one example of how it's done. – Ferretwings (talk) 07:13, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
    Cargo seems like a cool extension, I’ll check what’s up with my email, not sure why it’s blocked. —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 13:30, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
    MediaWiki was a bit confusing with their description, so If I have this correct: Cargo is a data-storing extension which allows for infoboxes?

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Also, here’s the email (couldn’t figure out how to get it on my userprofile, so I just put it here with user filter): (Nevermind, just go to UserProfile:Awesome diamonds for the email, so that people can’t see the code)
    ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 14:07, 5 November 2017 (UTC) ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

    Also one other question: could the templates {{history}}, {{stub}}, and {{item infobox}} be updated with the changes made in their sandboxes and editcopies (since they’re protected)? —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 14:59, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    Turkor and Formatting[edit source]

    A couple things, here. First of all, the behavior you described happening with Turkor is entirely normal (minus the spine). The body isn't supposed to have "infinite" defense, it's supposed to have enough defense to make it not worth attacking with pre-Hardmode weapons. Also, if you manage to drop the body's health to 2/3 or 1/3 while heads are still alive, the extra heads will appear instantly. It seems like the page could have described that better, so sorry for the confusion.

    No, I’m sorry for the confusion. The way I explained it was a bit iffy —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:04, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    Secondly, I've noticed you've been making a couple of formatting changes that end up leaving huge areas of white space. Are you using a mobile device or a small monitor? If that's the case, I'd recommend using the mobile view, as the desktop view is designed to look better for medium-to-large monitors (seen here).

    Using small monitor, sorry about that —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:04, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    As a last note, always make sure the page you're editing looks correct using the "show preview" button before saving changes, otherwise you might end up confusing readers who access the page while you're still working on it. – KM100 (talk) 22:16, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    I’ll make sure to use that next time, sorry for the confusion again —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 23:04, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

    Signature[edit source]

    Hey there -- thanks so much for all your recent work on Terraria Wiki! I do have to ask though that you stop using a transcluded template as your signature. This is in Terraria_Wiki:Rules#Signatures. Transcluded signatures can put undue strain on the server. You can use a subst'd signature (subst: must be in your profile's signature line), as long as the resulting code placed on the page is less than 256 characters. Please make this change sometime in the next day or so. Thanks! Equazcion (talk) 14:55, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)

    I think that the use of includeonly and SUBST was able to fix the problem. Thanks for giving me a heads up! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk
    Awesome Diamonds, what exactly does your signature line look like at Special:Preferences? – Ferretwings (talk) 15:57, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    {{SUBST:User:Awesome diamonds/Signature/Code}}, I think a double SUBST is what is causing the glitch with the sig —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」16:07, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Test —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 16:11, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Ok, it seems like any sigs that I create from now on are fine, it’s just the past ones are broken... looking into itϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 16:12, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    It seems fixed now, all instances of {{SUBST:User:Awesome diamonds/Signature}} should be gone and replaced with the <256 character sig —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 16:15, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    Thanks for taking care of that :) Equazcion (talk) 20:30, 9 Nov 2017 (UTC)
    No problem, thank you again for notifying me (also put the wrong inequality sign there, fixed) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:04, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
    Also one more question: Is my signature still within guidelines in terms of display? It links to User:Awesome diamonds, but displays as Awesome_Diamonds. It says on the guidelines page that for User:BillSimpson, even BillySimpson is unacceptable. Thanks again for looking into it! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 02:08, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Furute readers: this got resolved —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 14:13, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

    Rollback[edit source]

    I've added the "rollback" feature to your account at Terraria Wiki. Please have a look at Help:Rollback for some important information about this tool and how it is to be used. Thanks, and feel free to contact me with any questions. Equazcion (talk) 15:47, 13 Dec 2017 (UTC)

    Thanks Equazcion! I’ll make sure to check out the help page —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 15:51, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

    *Modifier* The *item* 3DS[edit source]

    Hello, are you certain that the modifier name bug exists on the 3DS version? I only own the PC version, so I am unable to test it. HnZ88 (talk) 16:48, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

    I don’t own a 3DS, but I know that Console version Console is the only version where it’s fixed —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 16:50, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

    On the saleability of squirrels:[edit source]

    According to the Critter page, critters can be sold on desktop and console, but not mobile. Console does cherry-pick some of the newer features. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 02:04, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

    So should it be split between desktop-console and mobile-3ds? Or should I just leave the mobile icon as is —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 04:02, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
    Well, this is certainly where replacing everything with "version 1.3.0.1" breaks down. The multiple platform icons aren't actually redundant, since each of them can still have some platform features or gaps. (Similarly, IIRC mobile has graphical limits, I think they're discussed in "Dyes".) So even if the 1.3.0.1 thing mostly works, you still need to use the separate icons for cases like this. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 12:13, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

    Banners (decorative)[edit source]

    Hello, Awesome diamonds. You removed the verification need on Banners (decorative) about faction banners not affecting spawn rate. This edit by User:KM100 claims otherwise. I added the verification need due to mismatched information. If you have indeed confirmed that the banners do not affect spawn rate then also please change Dungeon Brick Wall. If the opposite is true, please fix Banners (decorative). HnZ88 (talk) 15:21, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

    I can confirm that it doesn't affect spawns, I'll make the necessary edits. Thanks for notifying me about the conflict! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 18:31, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

    Chat invites[edit source]

    Since you're such an active contributor, if you haven't already, I wanted to extend invites to the wiki chats we have, where a lot of Terraria Wiki collaboration and general wiki talk occurs:

    Thanks! Hope to see you there. Equazcion (talk) 01:08, 1 Feb 2018 (UTC)

    Thanks for inviting me Equazcion, I’ll be sure to try and join those as soon as I can :) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk」 14:11, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
    UPDATE: Should be hooked up to both now —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 02:58, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

    Queen bee[edit source]

    I am at version 1.3.5. I went to jungle, spawned it naturally. Died to it and it didn't come to at spawn (waited 5 min). Then i went found another bee hive, recalled when summoned and saw on minimap, how the boss disappeared at the border of jungle. —Preceding unsigned comment added by VanSylman (talkcontribs) at 18:07, March 2, 2018‎ (UTC)

    Oh, sorry, I forgot to add the extra info (you are correct about singleplayer). I'll change it now. Thanks for pointing that out! :) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 12:52, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

    Placeable ores[edit source]

    I had copied it, but not verbatim – in fact one of the fields I adjusted was placeability. I somehow thought that as in minecraft, ores could not be placed once mined. After looking at your edit, I finally realised what all the square tiles next to the inventory icons were... I feel silly now.

    I might have to include a few of those placed sprites in the infobox, so thanks for pointing out the mistake! Techhead7890 (talk) 11:58, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

    No, it’s fine, we all make mistakes (in my case, some really bad ones...). Thanks for revamping the boxes, looks better now. :) —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 17:24, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
