How do i go about obtaining icons ex: "Soul crystal of the Samurai"? or others The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nytetrain (talk).

Hi! Click on the Upload file to upload a file to use it later. People obtain icons from media available from Square Enix, although it's known by the community the usage of data-mining tools that read the game files to extract icons. Valento (talk) 18:16, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Do new images need to be sourced?

I would like to add images to weapons, armor, etc. However, I don't have all of the items, so I'm wondering if it would be okay to take the images from other sources: (Google, Eorzea Database) The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nanashin (talk).

Sure, go ahead. You can indicate the source of the image by adding a comment to the image when you're uploading it -Moogle (talk) 17:56, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Visual Editing?

Is this Wiki going to adopt Visual Editing? Makes things much easier....

No confirmation email

I've tried a few times. No confirmation email shows up for me. Is there a problem sending to a email address from your wiki? I've encountered issues with various sites / email servers where one thinks the other is blacklisted or something. Just saying. 3 times ought to do it.

To what extent are spoilers acceptable?

Hi, I figured I'd contribute a little, despite no one else adding/editing something for a while, but wanted to ask to what extent spoilers are acceptable? I mean, on one hand this is a wiki to gather all the information in one place, but I've contributed to some other wikis where such things became an issue. So yeah, aye/nay on possible spoilers and in case it's an aye, to what extent can I add stuff and if there's a limit to begin with.

In this case, the question was prompted by me starting to work on the page about The Scions of the Seventh Dawn, and not knowing whether to include what happens during the actual in-game story in the history or not, seeing how their heavy involvement would spoil most of the story.

Hello Hestia, thank you for contributing to the wiki and raising concerns about spoilers. We believe a wiki should have all of the information on a topic. So for us, It's an aye on possible spoiler content. Templates like Template:Spoiler and Template:Spoiler section can be used to warn users about upcoming spoiler content.
Additionally, <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed"> Hidden Content </div> can be used to hide content like this:

I just want to know if there is a way to get rid of all the publicity on this Wiki, by paying a subscription for example. I did look around for this but didn't found the answer, sorry if it was already asked and answered.

I accidentally switched to desktop mode on my cell phone, and I cannot switch it back. Can you tell me how to change back to mobile mode?

Editing Help Wanted

I'm currently making a wiki scrapper and need to create CSV for the cases in Ephemeral_Nodes for the items that have more than one in their table cell.

This change is like so in the regular Nodes page (see here) where multiple items are separated by commas (aka CSV).

See here for the Ephemeral_Nodes page.

I'll likely get to this later after finishing up my program, however, if anyone could do this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Spelling mistake in the title of a page.

Is there any way to fix or remove this page? I don't want to mess around with it too much out of fear of messing things up.

I made a separate page to correct my mistake that has no issues but that still exists and I don't know what to do about it.

  • There are a couple of things you can do - either a redirect which I can see you've done or you can do
    and then the page will be deleted permanently. JohnnySolas (talk)

Fixing missing entry in SMW table

Hi there, I noticed Earth Crystal is missing the Level 30 Logging gathering nodes in Peacegarden. As far as I can tell Template:gathering list calls SMW to find out and display the information, but I don't have experience with SMW and I can't figure out where that data is listed. How can I add the missing gathering node to the table? Techhead7890 (talk) 06:24, 4 November 2023 (UTC)

Resolved: Ahhh, it looks like it's pulling from the subzones/Area pages, certainly for newer Areas, and just some older ARR zones are missing those tables at the moment. I think I added the appropriate information to Peacegarden and have put a short note on the Gathering List template documentation! Techhead7890 (talk)

Remove or hide ads from site

I'm tired of seeing the ads on the pages, especially when they cover some of the content I need to read. Is there some sort of subscription or single-time monetary expense I can utilize to remove/hide these ads on my account?

There's a patreon for the wiki, $2/USD a month to remove ads. - Dr Agon (talk) 01:04, 9 January 2024 (UTC)
