re-organize "portrait item" page? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

As per this topic from late last year, I've been wanting to re-organize the Portrait Item page in the wiki.

I've posted a draft version of my proposal in one of my usual spots.

I believe I've covered all existing portrait items (i.e. all those currently in the existing article), plus the few new ones I found that were not yet posted. Never the less, I'd be grateful for any spot-checking and error-proofing you all would care to give, as well as feedback on the proposed re-organization. ;-)

Thanks!
Franklin

The note on the foamy mug in the Experience section should now read "below" rather than "above".

Otherwise, to be honest, I don't really see that your proposal provides a noticeable advantage over what's there already.

Besides that, rather than upload missing-image placeholders, why not actually put some effort into looking for (or requesting) said images? Uploading the placeholder adds about seven steps to the procedure when you get an actual image to upload...

Good point...
I've fixed this, making the three tool-using puzzles consistently referenced within this section.

1) Alphabetical order for sections and subsection.
2) Splitting out Eggs into their own section.
3) Adding in links (in Eggs) to respective Arrrtist
4) Removing the useless heading of "Inventory"

I can do that. ;-)

Thanks for the feedback. :-D

Addendum...

Should "Dolls" be their own section (i.e. should they be split out from the parent section "Trinket")?

Since dolls are such a highly-valued sub-set of trinkets (especially in the case of Ringer dolls), I can see the logic of splitting them out.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
Franklin

Whilst on the topic of dolls, should the monster dolls really be posted twice?

I commend you on your hard work and fine efforts!

Post it, man! The Yppedia has been so sorely neglected. Reward yourself and post your file.
