Hi there, I'm trying to make an infobox for an item and I'm new at this. Looking at the template, there's some fields that are missing that I'd like to use such as flavor text, on hit effects, required str/dex/etc. Are we/you able to edit the valid fields or do you have a better suggestion? The page I'm working on is Hugh's Magical Sword. I'm going to leave the plain text I had and also leave the infobox I tried to create. Any input is appreciated! Drauka03

Sure I can help. Where inside the infobox would you want these fields (i.e. before or after which section?) Just let me know and i can add them for you — Game widow (talk) 16:34, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
Alright, the fields are there, just not showing up. Order doesn't matter a whole lot but I put them in the order they appear on the item in game. They are: requirements (like 3 base str) and effects (like on-hit chances). On some items I'd like to put the flavor text, and that doesn't seem to be a valid left-column either. I could just do a regular table, but the infobox looks much nicer. Drauka03

Tbh I wouldn't mind updating it. However, as far as a "guardian" goes? I have no clue what that is. I'm merely just collecting information as I play and trying to make layouts for similar pages. I also tried to figure out how to do tooltips with images in them where you scroll over a link and it pops up. That didn't go so well because I'm not the best with website coding.

I wouldn't mind be a guardian then. I don't know much but I can learn, would be great experience for me since coding is what I wanna do, even if this is just a wiki. I also think its a good idea to update this and make it useful for people since when i typed in Balrum wiki this page showed up.
Instead of having to have a page for Corn we just tooltip it whenever it is listed or mentioned on a page. Person scrolls over it and it just pops up with the in game tooltip image with all the info you would ever need.Zetskey (talk) 1:19 AM, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
Where would you imagine the information about corn would come from for this tooltip? You'd still need a corn page — Game widow (talk) 12:38, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
I meant a non summation page. Not the same as the Farming page with displayed information, description, bullet points, etc. I understand there will still be a page in which you could find the picture, but that it wouldn't have a page that would be linked to anywhere on the wiki; e.g. Farming. The only way to display the information, without knowing the exact address of the image's page, is by scrolling over the word corn and the tooltip would pop up with the in-game picture.

If a page is created for corn, i see no reason why it would not be linked to. it can also serve as a source of information for tooltips, but avoiding linking to it seems completely at odds with how wikis work — Game widow (talk) 22:05, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Are you the only one working on the wiki? Are there others?

I work for Curse. Other than you, there are 2 other people active: Lexxxich and BearBalalaikaGame widow (talk) 03:33, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
Is there a guide to knowing what exactly should go on a page? I put some stuff on farming that I thought was useful but it's gone now. Was that not the right information, wrong place, or was the information I put found in another page? || Zetskey

Btw, where do you take icons? Printscreen or extracting them from game sources? --BearBalalaika (talk) 08:01, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

They were extracted from game resources. The ones we have are here and in the subcategories — Game widow (talk) 14:01, 12 March 2016 (UTC)
