Inspiration[edit source]

Hi there, my name is Kate, I am an admin over at the Fallout wiki. Just stopping by to let you know that your creature template is exceptionally well done, and its use on the orc article inspired me to rally the troops to write a similar template on our wiki for consumables. I actually tracked it down after spotting its functionality featured on Fandom's infobox help page. Anywho, before I go on and on, I have added an attribution linking back here while also showcasing my gratitude to you and yours. Thank you again so very much! -kdarrow (user/talk)

Ah, I didn't know our stuff was used on the Help pages, but I'm happy it's helping other wikis. Templates like that are the product of development over several years. I can't take credit for Creature, it's mostly the work of User:Moviesign and User:Lhynard, our resident coders, but I'll pass on your thanks. :) BadCatMan (talk) 02:28, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Chapter cites[edit source]

Greetings, I noticed you managed to wrangle the cites for Madryoch and The Shadow Stone correctly, and I thank you for that. I was wondering if you could tell me how that one works? I have cited chapter titles so far as strings, and while trying to copy your citation format for The Shadow Stone with Darkvision, it doesn't seem to work, nor be caught on the previews. I suspect there is something to be changed about the template before such works correctly? 22:47, 10 June 2021 (UTC) – User:Stabbier

There was: I needed to update the {{Cite book/The Shadow Stone}} template to display chapter information. It's a newer addition, so most of our cite templates don't have them. I added the line here. It's not an ideal solution; we encourage everyone to give the page first to be more exact and the chapter number should be in support of that. BadCatMan (talk) 06:15, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

En Dash vs. Em Dash[edit source]

I was under the impression that the shorter en dash was the correct one to use for ranges such as 100-400 gold pieces. https://www.scribbr.com/language-rules/dashes/ Artemaz (talk) 11:52, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

Yes, it is. Did I do it wrong somewhere? I would've clicked the wrong dash in the edit tools. BadCatMan (talk) 13:29, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Yes I had the smaller en dash for the 100-400 gold piece range and you changed it to the longer em dash. I'll switch it back. Artemaz (talk) 14:44, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Ah, that's not an en dash (–), that's a hyphen (-). An em dash is much longer (—). So I undid your undo. BadCatMan (talk) 15:06, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Gotcha. Guess I've never seen the much longer em dash used.Artemaz (talk) 16:26, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
