Hi, welcome to PathfinderWiki! Thanks for your edit to the Council of Thieves page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Yoda8myhead (Talk) 00:57, 28 February 2010

Citation help

Hey Nizos! Great to see you diving right in on some pretty large articles! Just wanted to offer some help on citing, as I notice that's something you're working on now, and it can take some getting used to.

In general, you should put citations inline, after the text that comes from a particular source. Do so by adding <ref>{{Cite book/Book Name|Page number}}</ref> after the last sentence of the cited material. Adding the page number is vital, especially for AP volumes. Then, in the 'References header at the bottom of the page, add the {{Refs}} template. Let me know if you've got any questions, and welcome again to PFWiki! —yoda8myhead 04:54, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hey -- thanks for the advice, yeah, was struggling with that (I guess I need to RTFM :-) Thanks for the tip. I'll probably have lots of more questions for you later! --Nizos 04:59, February 28, 2010 (UTC)
One of our primary guidelines is to "be bold", so we'd much prefer you to edit and pick up the intricacies as you go than not edit at all. Just take a look at changes I or others make to what you've added and you'll get up the learning curve pretty quickly.—yoda8myhead 05:04, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Got the cite stuff working. Will follow your advice on the be bold idea. Nizos 05:28, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Re: refactoring the lodge pages

I would say that the Pathfinder lodge article should include a sentence or two on each known lodge, with a link to full articles for any for which more information exists. This way users can get a little information on all of them in once place and go to more in depth articles if they wish to do so.—yoda8myhead 20:52, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yep, makes sense. Thank you! Nizos 21:02, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

I talked to him yesterday about it - he's going ino surgery next week and plans to do finishing touches while he's on medical leave... I again apoligize for the wait, but it should be almost over at least.... :( -- Cpt kirstov 03:43, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the update Cpt, no need to apologize, I'm happy to wait for a much longer :-) sozin

Welcome back

Good to see you back! Do you have pics of your minis from the editing contest yet? —Yoda8myhead 01:59, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Nope

Alas, despite repeated requests, minis have yet to be delivered :-(

unfortunatly the painter got bogged down with classes for work and has been really slow, I started bugging him weekly about it now... I think the PCs are mostly if not done, and he's working on the dragon and custom base now, but I'm not 100% certain... I really do apoligize for the delay -- Cpt kirstov 17:26, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

no sweat, sorry if I sounded bitchy, quality is well worth waiting for! —Nizos

Not at all, I'm meeting with the painter after a local parade on Sunday, so I hope to have some sort of timeframe for you after that. -- Cpt kirstov 15:36, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Talked to him today Custom base is done, dragon is almost done and first few coats are done on iconics, detailing has begun on them. As soon as I have it in hand I'll contact you for address and post pics both email and on here. Shouldn't be too much longer (I hope) -- Cpt kirstov 23:21, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
