Bingo ! Those are the improvement works in the pipeline. There are several other stuff planned for the wiki, check out this thread: http://www.cardhunter.com/forum/threads/card-hunter-forum-style-sheet.265/page-2#post-3712
The current bottleneck for pushing ahead with wiki upgrades primarily stems from the fact that it is currently hosted out of goodwill on Roshirai's server. Which means none of us has admin access and I really hate to crash anything. Upgrades are therefore incremental and require monitoring. The latest improvement: item category populate took about 4 hrs to complete for a mere 200+ items. Which prolly points to the fact that there isn't a lot of memory or a very fast server that we are talking about. Ordinarily: a botscript, data files, templates would be able to generate the wiki in about a day to a week (depending on db size and sort duration).

If there are any other items/cards that don't work correctly with the card and item forum bbcode, feel free to let me know and I'll fix them ASAP.
Thank you very much !
It's actually just shared hosting over on Dreamhost that I had for a personal website that doesn't exist anymore. So don't worry too much about crashing it: you wouldn't end up nuking anything else I was hosting, and I figure it'd be easy enough to give a swift kick if it goes down.
Since it's shared hosting, however, and not a dedicated server, it'll likely be a little slow. If that becomes a long-term problem, I can see about upgrading.
Oh, and on an unrelated note, Phaselock, I went ahead and made you an admin on the wiki. I'm surprised I hadn't done that already. I'm clearly getting old.
not worth the bling if devs are going to port the wiki...
GOOD GOD ! You just tripled my to-do list with 1 sentence...that was a critical dice roll !
edit: admin =/= sysop...whew !
Phase, do you have a list of the Items that have changed in the last build(s) such as Stinging Staff?
Nope. In 2 minds right now so I moved to working on templates, might restart after the latest wave of changes stabilize...

Thanks for that list, Phase. Now going through my party builds dropping lots of items...
Mail of Righteous Anger and Talisman of Ill-Fate have redirects to work with forum bbcode tags.
Rock on! I was gonna work on this, but you beat me to it. Glad it's done though, it's a huge improvement.
For those following the wiki and wondering about progress updates, we are currently working on botscripts and a site revamp. All prior data input were tests for assessing template deficiencies and data portability. As manual entry rates could not catch up with build changes, it was inevitable we'd have to resort to automated data entry solutions.
Apologies to those who went out of their way to collect item/card data for the wiki, you have my gratitude and sincere thanks. Once the new site is ready, we'd like to invite entries for party builds, PvE/PvP guides and the such to match game release. Hope it helps.
I believe "yay" is the correct response.
Thank goodness! I was putting off uploading of all of the new swag from the "Pizza Chest Overload" session.
So for dummies like me what does this mean no reason to keep items?
Shield updated: Rusty Buckler
Divine items updated: Incense Of The Caged Demon
Arcane items updated: Carnelian Mirror
Boot updated: Boots Of The Crab, Crazy Fast Boots, Misenchanted Plate Boots, Quickling Boots, Magic Monkey Boots, Rusty Monkey Boots, Glowing Sandals, Hyperactive Boots, Soft Boots, Charging Boots, Off-Balance Boots, Crafted Boots, Pirouetting Boots

We are still testing item botscripts but boots and shields up to lvl 10 are in. Jayce is the volunteer responsible, send him your thanks.
Item template now subcategorizes by <rarity><itemtype>, accepts Legendary items.
Yes, there is no reason to keep generic items. Nevertheless, there are two things I'm constantly looking for that we still need for the wiki tests.
a) Talent beads other than the circles and squares. We do not know if the third talent pip exist in beta.
b) Cards with triple AAA quality, ie, titlebars above emerald. If you do have such cards, pls PM me with screenshots, thanks.
Is there anything a non-beta tester can help with on this?
As of now, we have 1 non-beta tester (who has programming know-how) helping with the wiki and that's about all the help we need from non-betas. Once the game is released, guides on adventures/monsters/builds will be sorely needed from the community. You'll bet we'll need need help on this. Hope it helps.
