Admin help needed
I made a booboo with the Golden Vase (peacock) furni grid (/e curses the confusing names) and Budclare very kindly told what to do to move the page etc...I think I have it right now but I need an admin to help change the image path.

at the moment it is reading as
https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/File:Colors-furniture-Gilded_peacock_vase.png

and it needs to say
https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/File:Colors-furniture-Golden_vase_(peacock).png

many thanks

Re: Admin help needed
/e steals the thread

While we're renaming things...
-File:Building-Cerulean-Dyeing_Me_Softly.png needs to be renamed to File:Building-Cerulean-Black_Magic_Woman.png
-File:Furniture-Large_table_(recolorable).png needs to be File:Furniture-Large_table_(colored).png
-File:Furniture-Large table (recolorable)-2.png needs to be File:Furniture-Large table (colored)-2.png

/e uses imaginary cookies to bribe an admin

(The tables are called "Large table" in game, exactly the same as the non-enameled large table, so I had to tweak the name...but I didn't name it very well. I took the yohoho tools habit of calling them "recolorable", but then I realized that must sound really confusing to anyone not familiar with yohoho tools. So after that, I always used "(colored)" for disambigging furniture that's available in colored and no-color versions.)

Re: Admin help needed
Done.

So there's this category here: https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Category:Misnamed_images

Just in case anyone gets bored, there's a whole category of these. The main problem I have is that it sometimes takes a long time to figure out what the correct name should be. :( The category tag will let you suggest the correct name.

Yeah, I was looking at that category a few days ago. It's such a mess, though, that I kind of hated to add anything to it. In fact, most of it just looks like garbage that ought to be deleted.

Re: Admin help needed
It is kind of a mess. Sorting through it you could genuinely just tag stuff with the deletion tag as well. A number of them would be completely justified. At one point in time it had ~1500 images. I made a solid dent in it, mainly by doing all the easy ones, then slowly whittled away at it. And then I gave up on it. :P

Re: Admin help needed
I need to move this page to here. (Once or twice in the past, I copied and pasted from user pages to the appropriate page just because it had somehow not occurred to me that I could move from user space, and also the pages were brand new and had no history to speak of, I think. Now that I've realized I can...I still can't. Whee!)

There admittedly isn't much edit history on the user page, but there's still more history than the redirect page has, since it was never anything except a redirect page. So, I was going to ask someone to delete the redirect page, but the Move page says:
 
Note that the page will not be moved if there is already a page at the new title, unless it is empty or a redirect and has no past edit history.

So I tried just moving the page myself...but it gave me an error. Of course. I guess because it has an edit history, i.e. the creation of the page with the redirect, but how exactly could a redirect exist without having been created? Silly Move function.

So, I guess I do need the redirect page deleted, unless there's some other solution I'm not aware of. Or someone can just move the page for me, if that's easier. I'll add the for2 to the user page so it'll be ready to go.

Re: Admin help needed
Do yppedia admins have the power to split a page's history? Wikipedia admins apparently do, but I didn't see any reference to it on our help pages.

This page got stolen ages ago. It's not just a different building, but a different island. I'd probably ignore it, but the owner of the original (now dusted) shoppe links to the page from her pirate page.

The current building has been renamed anyway, so it needs to be moved to "Leather and Lace (Terra Island)" (a name I'm not entirely happy with, but the alternatives seemed worse). If admins have the ability to just move the portion of the history that applies to the current building (from June 2011 on), that would be nice. If not, I guess I'll just copy and paste the old building stub after I move the page.

Re: Admin help needed
Wikipedia runs MediaWiki 1.28, YPPedia only has 1.18. If there's a tool for us to split page histories, I don't see it. But there may be another way.

(EDIT)Looks like I managed to split it up by deleting and selective restoration. However, Leather and Lace itself has a bit of history (as there used to be ANOTHER building on Meridian...ON THE SAME ISLAND!), so I'm not sure what to do with the names.

Blargh.

Yeah, I spent some time tearing my hair out over that. I hated to go with (Terra Island) since there used to be another, but (second Terra) or something seemed kind of nuts, and the old building was never named (Terra Island) anyway. So. Whatever.

Thanks for the help. <3 This one's been on my to-do list for almost three months because it was just so annoying.

Re: Admin help needed
Could someone move the following templates for me with the redirects suppressed, please? I just need the "Yeti" replaced with "Festive yeti".

https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Template:My_pets/Yeti/primary/sea_green
https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Template:My_pets/Yeti/primary/chocolate
https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Template:My_pets/Yeti/primary/wine
https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Template:My_pets/Yeti/primary/spring_green

(Naughty plum yetis, not letting me use the same templates for both anymore.)

Tuatha Tinctures
Crann Bethadh (Meridian)

It was renamed to replace a dusted building, so I moved the old page to make room, but now the redirect needs to be squashed. The page is already updated so you can grab the new name from there. The screenshot is sorted out already.


EDIT: Added a second page. I don't know what it is about Fintan. I haven't had this problem in a few months, I think, and now twice in an hour or so.

Re: Admin help needed
Can someone move this page back to the un-disambigged name (Sea Lions), please (which requires the deletion of the redirect page)? It got renamed post-merge, and is now back to its original name.

https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Sea_Lions_(Meridian)


EDIT: Actually, while we're at it, could someone delete these pages, please?
https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Guardians_of_the_Gallery_(Cerulean) I...booched. This page needs to be deleted so the original page can be moved (back) to this name. (Downside: my hilarious "persimmon" boochage will be lost from the revision history. ;)

Try putting a space after it? I think that's what's breaking it.
