Thank you![edit source]

Thank you for the welcome. I just edited a page before I registered. I have had a few edits on my I.P, being unregistered.



Help Please[edit source]

I noticed a spell that doesn't have the __ Costs __ per cast. With ___ it is ___ coins. That stuff. When I edit a page that has it, it shows like "#expr:GEPri" that's all. How would I do that so it's per cast? Thank you =). Iggy

Hi there. When you see that, it adds up the total amount of runes required for the spell. An example for Ice Rush is Ice Rush costs 898 coins for each cast.. The code for that is '''Ice Rush costs {{#expr:{{GEPrice|Water rune}} * 2 + {{GEPrice|Chaos rune}} * 2 + {{GEPrice|Death rune}} * 2|n}} coins for each cast.'''. You place the exchange name of the runes, and multiply them by how many are needed per cast. ~MuzTalk 00:29, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your response. May I ask, what is the 2|n for? It's after the Death Rune. I know it's *2, then what's the n? Thanks!

Iggytoad 00:34, December 14, 2009 (UTC) Iggy

I'm not totally sure. I'm guessing it needs that. I thought that may be for turning it into a number, but it still worked without it. I would keep it in the page, though. ~MuzTalk 00:49, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Grimy lantadyme.png Iggytoad TalkEditSignBlue partyhat.png 20:10, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

The reason they are not showing up is because you have got | and ''[['' or '']]'' in places you don't need, Oh and, you don't need the template bit of it in because {{ stands for template. Thanks, Liam - Beta Tester (talk) 20:17, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Are you allowed to edit it? I'm kind of confused. Grimy lantadyme.png Iggytoad TalkEditSignBlue partyhat.png 20:18, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

RE: GE Price[edit source]

Hello. The {{#expr ...}} code calculates the casting cost using current rune prices from our GE Market Watch database. The price of a certain rune is found using {{GEPrice|rune name}}, then multiplying it by the number per cast, and adding all the rune types together. This way all the casting costs automatically update when one of the rune prices change eCopM0F.png. If you need more help, just let me know which article you're looking at and I can take a look at it. --Quarenon  Talk 21:27, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Signature[edit source]

Easily done. But do you want "edit" to link to Special:Contributions/Iggytoad, Special:Editcount/Iggytoad, or Quarenon's spiffy edit report? kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 21:59, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Spiffeh edit report =D. Thanks Grimy lantadyme.png Iggytoad TalkEditSignBlue partyhat.png 22:00, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
The edit report doesn't automatically update, so if you pick it you'll need to manually update it by going here, then replacing the old url with the more current one. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 22:30, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Too lazy to do that =(. Sorry. How about, the Special:Editcount/Iggytoad? Grimy lantadyme.png Iggytoad TalkEditSignBlue partyhat.png If I sign your book, sign mine! 22:31, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit source]

The reason the ones at the bottom were just links is because you just posted the links to those templates. I have commented (hidden) them so you can complete them later. Just remove the <!-- ---> so they'll be visible again. Andrew talk 23:42, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

I'll fix it kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 23:55, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
I suggest disabling the Rich Text Editor by going to your preferences, clicking the "Editing tab" and un-checkmarking "Enable Rich Text Editing". The Rich Text Editor has a lot of problems, one of which is the one you just experienced. I've fixed your userboxes, but I don't know what the input was, so I replaced any unknown inputs with "?", so you can fill them in quickly. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 00:06, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
I had to hide them using the same thing Andrew used earlier, because if you don't provide input, the templates break and mess up the page. Once you correct the input, delete the two lines which I have indicated in the page, and everything will be all set. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 00:17, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

How? Umm, here's the coding, but I don't really get what you mean. Also, if you want to change any of the text, or add images, I can show you how to do that as well.

Coding: <div class=usermessage> [[User:Iggytoad|User Page]] | [[User talk:Iggytoad|Talk Page]] | [[Special:editcount/Iggytoad|Edit Count]] | [[User:Iggytoad/Guestbook|Sign 4 Sign (Guestbook)]] | [[User:Iggytoad/Sandbox|Sandbox]] </div>

You want images on this as well? Not Lvl 3 22:12, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Um, I don't know how to do that. Ask a couple of other editors. Someone else will probably know how to do this. Not Lvl 3 22:17, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Re:Header help[edit source]

You can try reading this which gives an overview of how to create signatures. If you struggle with it, you can tell what you want and I can make it for you. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 23:09, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I cleaned up the code a bit. I fixed your sandbox link and I added some nonbreaking spaces so the text was pushed a bit furhter away from the border so its easier to read. I'd suggest changing the colour of the text to something besides blue, which is a bit hard to read. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 23:47, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Re: Timer/Countdown[edit source]

The easiest way to do a countdown is like this:

<span class="countdowndate">December 25 2009</span><span class="nocountdown">{{Time countdown|25 Dec 2009}}</span>

That produces the following result: December 25 2009no time

In my signature, I was a little sneaky. I knew that it started with a T, so I used this: XMAS GIF<span class="countdowndate">December 25 2009</span><span class="nocountdown">TS in {{Time countdown|25 Dec 2009}}</span>

That meant that if the countdown was allowed to load, it would say "XMAS GIFT minus however many days...". However, if it couldn't load, it would use the Time countdown template. That returns just a time, so I made sure to add in a few letters so it would say "XMAS GIFTS in however many days...".

You won't normally need to do too much more than just the first example. Hope that helps! I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 03:14, December 16, 2009 (UTC) 

It just does. T minus 10 seconds is the standard countdown format for a lot of things. It makes for a good comparison to rocket launches =P. I just chose to try to work in something else instead. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 21:02, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Help D=[edit source]

Can we do "If-then-else"? Like, "if 51=2" blah. Get it?

You'll want {{#ifeq:input1|input2|true|false}} and/or {{#ifexpr:expression|true|false}}

  • #ifeq: compares input1 and input2 and checks if they're identical.
  • #ifexpr: works out the expression mathematically (you need to use one or more of these: =, >, <, <=, >=). It uses all the same things as #expr:

ifexpr is more flexible, but only for mathematical applications. If you're comparing text it needs to be ifeq.

See also: Mediawiki's page on these, specifically this section (expr functions), this section (ifeq) and this section (ifexpr).

Hope that helps, if you need anything else don't hesitate to ask me if you need anything else =D Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:58, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

You'll want this code: {{#expr:{{#time:z|25 december 2009}}-{{#time:z}}}} days to Christmas!, giving 58 days to Christmas!. That's what you wanted, yeah? Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:21, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
#time: is the function to mess around with times (see here). z is the code to return the day of the year (Jan 1 = 0), which I can then use to find the difference between now ({{#time:z}}) and Christmas ({{#time:z|25 december 2009}}) in days. Anytime. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:02, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Really, do you think I was vandalising? It was an accident, jeez, when I clicked edit it brought me to your subpage when I thought it would bring me to a section of Iiii's talk page. It was an accident, I said sorry, I even explained two posts ago. Sorry. No need to flip. Ssswizmig meant the same thing. Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 21:46, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
This type of thing will happen often if you include a section header in your template. People click "edit" thinking they're editing the talk page, when instead they are directed to your christmas template. You could remove the header from your template to prevent this in the future. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 21:48, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Re:Vandal[edit source]

You can see this for yoruself by going to your christmas greeting here and clicking the "edit" section for your christmas header. People will think they are editing Lil Diriz's talk page, but they are actually editing your template, because the section header, along with the edit link, are all part of your template. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 21:55, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

its fine, it was just a simple misunderstanding. You can fix it by either deleting the section header from your template, or keeping that the same and instead of posting {{User:Iggytoad/Christmasgreeting}}, post {{subst:User:Iggytoad/Christmasgreeting}}. Using subst: copies the code of your template over to the page, instead of just displaying the template, but linking back to your template page. Also, what are you doing in order to sign? Your signature should have a time stamp at the end, but its not showing up for you. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 22:05, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
You could add "sign4sign" to the end of your signature template and not have to type it all the time. You could just sign with ~~~~ and Your signature, followed by "sign4sign", then the time will appear. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 22:17, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
