Why is there a paycap I cades

At the time that auto paying of jobbers was added, 9999 PoE/seg was seen as being so high that the "cap" would never be hit. At the time, pay was maybe 1k-2k per *round*, or 400-500PoE/seg.


Actually, I believe the initial cap was 999 per segment. It was raised when paywars hit that initial cap.

Grr, I knew I should have just removed the image link and ignored the rest. The old image is so outdated, I'm not sure there's any point renaming it anyway... Never mind. I don't care.

(And the original name was so much better.)

Yeah, that. This was kinda my step number one, but I guess I wasn't exactly explicit. =)

That change happened during Ice testing. Leif convince OOO that it was *possible* that players might want to pay more than 1k/segment.

I'm uploading some images for the monthly rewards program page. The other images are mostly tagged as official images. I'm not sure if that's actually the right tag since the page is only official-ish (it's been mostly kept up by OMs lately but is not in the official namespace). Also, the template says the image is protected, but I'm not sure the others are actually protected (or need to be).

My very groggy point is, if they do actually need to be protected, then someone who is not me will need to do that. Personally, I doubt it matters. No one will bother fiddling with the images anyway, and the changes could be reverted if someone did...

The official tag is only used when the image is used in any of the official pages. I saw a few that were tagged as official but they should use the "ooo image" tag instead. As for protection, the only ones that might be protected are those used in official pages, not the rest.

I knew I should have waited until after I asked to upload them. Silly no-sleep brain.

Will fix them. Thanks. :)

Does anyone know why there's suddenly a (red) category for "Pages with broken file links"? (Like so.)

It's redundant because we already have a wanted files page, but mostly I'm just confused. How is a red category even created (without adding anything to the pages in question)? O_o

It's populated automatically by the MediaWiki software. There's a discussion here

I still don't understand how it happened. Unless things are still mysteriously disappearing? Because if it had to be manually disabled, and is now enabled again without anyone having actually done anything with it...

I was uploading some missing files just a few days ago. (Four days ago, apparently.) I'm sure I would have noticed that category if it'd been there then. Pretty sure. Almost entirely certain.

Should super-rare trinkets be added to palettes, or would that just be too cruel to collectors?

I'm of the opinion that if it can be found in-game, with no hacks or other cheating, it should be on the wiki. However, I'm also of the opinion that limited-edition or otherwise not-always-available trinkets should have their availability specified on the page.

As a related example, I think it's totally fair to include sea green trinkets that were only available during the Fox Box Promotion.

What do you mean by "palettes"? If you mean the colour grid that gets used in the My Trinkets template, then yes, by all means - otherwise people can't display in on their articles. If you mean this page, then no.

Does anyone know how to get the muppet-hand image for a bludgeon? We need one for the shovel.

With the current 2018 Holiday event. There's a new trophy named Silver Sigil... It's however the same name as the Silver Sigil you get from beating Madam. How do we go about duplicate names? I currently just threw a '2' at the end, but that's an ugly solution.

Hey, I've noticed the YPPedia falling out of date a bit in the newly released pets/famliar colors departments. While I could compile a list of inventory icons still needed and post that in the needed colors thread, I'd get lost on updating the color charts even with the images. Is there some trick or anything used to make them, or do/did people just carefully piece it all together manually?
