Make constructive reverts

You reverted my change to The Flaming Deeps, but you did not fix the orphan page problem.
You reverted my change to Corruption Removal Skills, but you did not fix the uncategorized page problem.

Rhosgobel Quests

Why did you change the "questgroup" parameter for all of the Rhosgobel quests? "Vales of Anduin" is the heading they're found under in the quest log (along with the three "Protecting..." quests). My understanding is that the wiki standard practice is to set "questgroup" to the quest log heading, and use "questchain" for any necessary additional grouping.
Also, the pages are now broken for three of the quests, due to the "questgroup" parameter being completely deleted.

My issue with "questgroup" and "questchain" is that they are often subcategories of each other. According to the categorization manual, pages should belong only to the bottom-most category. Unfortunately the current template does not provide a solution to this, editing the Questbox template would cause changes on large amount of pages, but it seems there is not better solution to this.
Sorry for the inconvenience, i reverted those changes. Thanks for letting me know.

All right; thanks for the explanation, and the reverts.
Looks like in older regions, the quest groups and quest chains are generally two separate categories underneath the region category. That's not what I've seen in the categorization for more recent regions, on which I've been basing the Vales of Anduin categorization. I'm not sure when the practice changed, or why, but perhaps the newer regions should have their categorization changed to come in line with the older practice.
-Velkeirien (talk) 11:26, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Reading through [Category talk:Quest Chains], seems "questchain"s are no longer in use by SSG. However the questchian box would be ridiculous - see [Quest:Introduction: Vales of Anduin].
In my opinion best would be to change the Questbox template to stop the unwanted behavior.

Uploading Picturesa

Thanks for your help. I am feeling my way but wanted to get the new items up. If policy is to omit floating names I will do it -- but I think the floating names enhance the picture myself. RULE ONE - The Administrator is always right. RULE TWO - If the Administrator is ever wrong, refer to RULE ONE.

JK - I appreciate the help. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lavandil (Contribs • User Talk).

Old Class Guides

I had removed the old class guides from the Class page they are very outdated but they got but back on. Is there a reason for this thanks. Oakheart (talk) 12:36, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

No, sorry, i was looking at the previous diff and i guess i edited wrong page. Drono (talk) 12:43, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

.PNG to .JPG Thanks

Thanks for re-uploading those image files in the proper format. I should have noticed that when I was categorizing all those images. Oakheart (talk) 11:44, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the categorization. I usually try to not categorize images that are not yet in use/have some problems, as the pages Special:UnusedFiles and Category:Stubs/Image already have lot of files in them, in hope someone will notice and upload better image before they get lost there.

Template not categorizing

I am trying to categorize Template:Epic to general wiki templates I have added the category but it is still showing as not categorized.

Oakheart (talk) 07:09, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Please do not categorize templates directly - it is done trough the Doc pages. Look at Template:Documentation
If you want to categorize page that is transcluded somewhere, use <noinclude>CATEGORY</noinclude>.
Drono (talk) 07:13, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

ah ok I see now thanks. Oakheart (talk) 07:22, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Fixed the Epic Template too - was case of not matching brackets and missing / Drono (talk) 07:53, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Main Page Special Events

Can you please correct the link to special events so it skips the redirect I got all the other ones cleaned up and thanks.

png to jpg

why are you uploading jpg version of the png files? Coloration is very degraded in jpg and quality to some extent —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rohanreads (Contribs • User Talk) at 22 December 2020.

Because according to Help:Images they should be uploaded in .jpg format.
