Deprecate then neglect? Edit

I may restore the old wiki faq, since its been 2 months since this one was deprecated and said to be replaced with sections that have never appeared. I wish people wouldn't leave tasks so unfinished... oh well.

Pointless. I moved the 2005/11 archives back in here (touched them up a bit though). --Mikk 04:18, 7 June 2006 (EDT)

Images? (2004, Nov)Edit

[2004 Nov 21; Goldark ] I noticed the mention of using Blizzard images. Whilst its all very well to copy them, do we actually have anyone/anywhere to host said images, rather than linking to other 3rd party sites which I'm guessing we shouldn't really be doing? Having images for abilities/spells will certainly enhance the Wiki's appearance a lot. -- Goldark

We have cosmosui.org in a pinch.
[2004 Nov 21; AlexanderYoshi ] For now, but if we have some images we *really* want hosted, you should send a message to Rustak, and we'll discuss what images to upload/not uploading. -- AlexanderYoshi

Wiki template list (2004, Nov)Edit

[2004 Nov 23; Goldark] Is there a page anywhere that gives a list of available Wiki templates like the money one?
Ok kicking something off unless someone finds something that works automatically :) template index


Search broken? (2005, July) Edit

[2005 Jul 29; Farmbuyer ] Is there any discussion about the complete brokenness of the search box on the left hand side?

No matter what I enter (try "scrollbar" for one), I get

 A database query syntax error has occurred. This could be because of an illegal search query (see Searching WoWWiki), 
or it may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

    SELECT cur_id,cur_namespace,cur_title,cur_text FROM cur,searchindex WHERE cur_id=si_page AND MATCH(si_title)
 AGAINST('+scrollbar' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND cur_namespace IN (0,9,11) LIMIT 0, 20

from within function "SearchEngine::showResults". MySQL returned error "1016: Can't open file: 'searchindex.MYI' (errno: 145)".

Question Edit

Is all the text free? Ie, can we pinch it and stick it in Wikipedia? - Access 12:11, 9 Sep 2005 (EDT)

Name Edit

Shouldn't this be called 'WoWWiki FAQ', without the space in the name? -- Kirkburn 14:13, 13 June 2006 (EDT)

No, "WoWWiki:FAQ", which it now has been renamed to :-)   --Mikk 23:10, 11 August 2006 (EDT)

IRC channel Edit

Prehaps add it to the forum question --Psyker7 23:24, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
