Gains Edit

Coobra and I have distinctly different preferences on this, almost certainly a result of which database website we "grew up with". Thottbot (me) displays all results of finishing a quest in one section. Wowhead (Coobra) displays (immaterial) gains and (material) rewards as separate sections.

From wowhead also comes the "rewards" "completion" "gains" format that I loath so much (for breaking up the "quest related text sections"). Again, it is what each of us grew accustomed to.

I'll note again the diffusion of comments on a topic. Perhaps Coobra has mentioned on Help talk:Quest articles about his change (adding 'gains' to the boilerplate) here. As I've not meandered there for an inspection, I dislike this change. Not quite so vehemently as I like the end-of-page redundant links, though, so I'm not yet to the point of putting it to a vote.

Could other folks weigh in on their preferences, and add which of the various DBs they have grown most fond of? --Eirik Ratcatcher 00:27, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

To tell the truth, I actually never used wowhead till some months ago, I've always used thottbot since day 1 of release...then switched to Allakhazam, cause I thought it was better...till I started using wowhead, now I use that one. I just prefer the looks of the separate sections. User:Coobra/Sig3 02:24, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm ambivalent on this; having them all in one section makes for a cleaner page to me, but separating them is closer to how it's presented in-game (where typically "gains" are not part of the text quest and "rewards" are). Separating them can also highlight the fact that the "rewards" are always given, while "gains" (often, I think) diminish if completing the quest at a much higher level. Also, I as a rule dislike and distrust online WoW DBs and rely on the game itself or this wiki. -- Harveydrone 15:09, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Not all "gains" degrade (rep no longer degrades, for instance), and we don't track any of that other than XP->money. And even that we pretty much throw up our hands and use wowhead. As for distrusting DBs... I do distrust them, but I can get a number that *might* be right faster from there than I can from the game. Note that I do gather info while gaming, when I can. (Thus many of the stories/interactions that I've added.) --Eirik Ratcatcher 22:51, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
