Spruce Hammer

For your efforts in editing an untold number of articles in the wiki for consistency and completeness, Michiyo has awarded you an honorary Spruce Hammer.

Are these recent page copies of yours going astray? I ask because, eg, they create a page which [[1]] reports as /Ascendants (although that is difficult to wikilink), but Ascendants and the target of that redirect already exist.

Ah very sorry, the pages for Arachnos, Council and PPD had these sub pages that weren't linked correctly. Didn't think to check if they already existed and started copying over from Paragon Wiki. Will fix it up Sorry for the inconvenience.

No worries, you're one of a handful of people doing the heavy lifting here to knock this into shape. Thunderforce (talk) 02:01, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
I've deleted everything tagged with "Category:Candidates_for_Deletion" Michiyo (talk) 03:03, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
Cheers! Aberrant (talk) 08:22, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the second categories to those icons (like File:DarknessControl Debuff.png). I try to check before I upload a new one to see if a copy already exists, but I it looks like I need to do a more thorough job! I also spent some time this morning cleaning up the rest of the 'mess' I've been leaving behind, such as updating moved links on pages, adding categories for icons that are used in more than one powerset, and for all the files I have uploaded, I did a bit more thorough check to see if they had duplicates anywhere that could be marked for deletion. I also marked a bunch of old redirects for deletion that were no longer needed. I'll be more pro-active about tidying up after myself going forward, and thanks again for lending a hand in that regard! --AboveTheChemist (talk) 15:31, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Opening I25/I26 Bin files

Does anyone have a way to dump the Homecoming bin files? The .exe I have to unpack the I24 bin files doesn't appear to be compatible with Homecoming's ones. Any insight? --Aberrant (talk) 08:52, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Dark Astoria transits

Good catch re DA in Grandville and PI. I lose track of this stuff myself. Thunderforce (talk) 19:02, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Howdy and New Template

Greetings, Hero or Villian as the case may be! :)

I'm new here, but an old WP:WikiGnome, so I took a stab a creating a new template using the documentation style I saw on other ones here.

I created {{bu}} and its documentation as a way to test my wings here.

Holler if I've messed up or overstepped.

Howdy! No oversteps, that's a super good template, thanks very much! I was just today thinking about making a couple pages for some companies and orgs that could use this template so I'll be sure to use it when I get around to them. This is my first time doing any wiki editing myself so I'm just bouncing from topic to topic! --Aberrant (talk) 16:26, 22 June 2020 (UTC)


I've nerfed those empty categories, but do drop me a message on my talk page if you think I've missed a request for deletion. Thunderforce (talk) 17:47, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
