As of this date, there were 30,432 articles on the FR Wiki, 11,656 files, and 85,065 total pages. My edit total was 35,949 / 37,234 depending on which number you believe. —Moviesign (talk) 17:52, January 1, 2020 (UTC)

Ref namesEdit

Just out of curiosity, why do we put ref names in quotes (referring to your Druid's cudgel edits)? Sturma (talk) 21:42, February 13, 2020 (UTC)

That is standard XML syntax. See this, for example. —Moviesign (talk) 21:53, February 13, 2020 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. Sturma (talk) 23:45, February 13, 2020 (UTC)

Succubi and Iggwilv Edit

So succubi are one of the few fiends that I don't know much about and if memory serves you wrote most of their article. Recently I read in a dragon article that succubi were the first tanar'ri *type* to appear in the Abyss, since they truly took on the mortal form rather than screwing with it. I can't remember where I read this part, but I also remember reading that the succubi abandoned the Abyss in droves at one point which helped Asmodeus become a god. Shouldn't that be in the succubus article?Vegepygmy (talk) 23:21, March 4, 2020 (UTC)

Hehe, you got the wrong guy. Use the History link under the edit menu to see who contributed to an article. I think User:BadCatMan is who you're looking for. —Moviesign (talk) 23:42, March 4, 2020 (UTC)

Trolls and potentially not troll Edit

Could you deal with this God of Gods fellow and Bahje character. The former just added a random bit about himself to the Darkling page and the latter seems to have posted his homebrew as an article.Vegepygmy (talk) 18:21, April 3, 2020 (UTC)

I took care of it. Thanks for the heads-up. ~ Lhynard (talk) 19:06, April 3, 2020 (UTC)

Giant Race Names Edit

SunderedShor (talk) 14:49, April 13, 2020 (UTC)

For the record, I am not sure where the "-en" suffix came from for the Giant word edits I made to the Fire Giant and Mountain Giant pages. I thought this was odd, but I saw that this was how the Frost Giant's page presented their Giant name so I just assumed that was how they were supposed to be presented.

I'm not the expert on FR languages, that would be Lhynard, but the actual words from page 28 of Giantcraft do not have the -en suffix. He will probably correct the mistakes (yours or mine) later. —Moviesign (talk) 14:55, April 13, 2020 (UTC)
-en is how you make a word plural in Giant. It is correct to have -en. ~ Lhynard (talk) 16:08, April 13, 2020 (UTC)
Then the cited source is inadequate. It needs another citation if you're going to modify what is on page 28. Right? —Moviesign (talk) 16:11, April 13, 2020 (UTC)
Page 28 is where it shows that "giants" is jotunen! :) ~ Lhynard (talk) 16:13, April 13, 2020 (UTC)
So it does. Carry on. :) —Moviesign (talk) 16:25, April 13, 2020 (UTC)

Regarding Recent Work Edit

Hey there Moviesign. A few days ago I started working on the article for archduke Glasya. It was a very decrepited mess, lacking citations and marked for clean up. I feel that it has developed significantly since I first started working on it and I was wondering if you could look it over to see if it's ready to have the "Marked for Cleanup" template removed.

SunderedShor (talk) 20:19, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

You may certainly remove the {{Unreferenced}} template, since you added citations to every paragraph I think. Thank you. :) As for the {{Cleanup}} tag, you can remove that one as long as the article is completely written in past tense. At a glance, I still saw a sentence or two that were in present tense, so it is almost done, but not quite. —Moviesign (talk) 22:12, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

Request Edit

Hey Moviesign, when you have some free time do you think you could take a look at the Merger suggestion I put on the Heavy pick article. ~ SunderedShor (talk) 17:08, June 11, 2020 (UTC)

Assitance with template Edit

I am working on a new wiki for a gaming system here and have borrowed a number of your templates to base mine off of. However I'm have problems with the Cite book template working. When I see it on your wiki it looks great but I'm getting the parser functions showing when I look at mine. Here is the link to my page if you would take a look I'd appreciate it. I hope I haven't stomped on to many toes. Ryanopel (talk) 00:21, July 24, 2020 (UTC)

To get those to work you'll need to ask Fandom to enable Extension:Regex Fun on your wiki. Use Special:Contact to request it. If you're not going to use the Import/Export feature to copy things, then please put "Copied from" in the edit summary when you make a copy. That is enough to satisfy the CC-By-SA license. Thanks! —Moviesign (talk) 00:33, July 24, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, I knew it had to be something simple. I'll try and remember to credit you guys. Ryanopel (talk) 00:35, July 24, 2020 (UTC)

Hello can you tell me what realms are included in the Forgotten Realms besides Eberron? because from what I've heard there are other campaigns of realms included I'm interested from the third edition upYountrainer 17:19, August 6, 2020 (UTC)

Chosen of MystraEdit

About my edit putting her as one of Mystra's chosen- it says on Mystra's wiki page that "Midnight became the last of Mystra's Chosen." Pobo459 (talk) 18:51, August 24, 2020 (UTC)

LOL, I actually wrote that seven years ago. I looked at the source again and it does not use the word "Chosen", although Mystra does give midnight some of her power to hold (but not use). I don't believe this fits the definition of a "Chosen" in this instance, so I have removed that line from the Mystra page. Perhaps others will argue in favor, but wearing a (very powerful) pendant and getting one spell boosted does not seem to be of the same order of magnitude as what true Chosen receive. —Moviesign (talk) 19:25, August 24, 2020 (UTC)
