This is a talk page. Maybe. Or not. Don't know. Leaving this just in case : GodWardPhoenix (U • C • T) 


This page has an /Archive

Old and/or inactive discussions have been moved to the archive subpage.

Leave a note for me there

Notes on possible homonyms Artifact/equipment

Just a note to my self for possible homonyms artifact/equipment that could either be mistakes or actually both existing, as they are mentionned in both artifact and equipment list at the moment. Feel free to help finding the truth!

Maybe should I create a talk about it on the main page or something? WardPhoenix (talk) 17:06, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Probably somewhere, yeah. I find it difficult to believe that there are really this many things that are both artifacts and equipment. My guess (since it' safe to assume they can't all have come from people being confused/mistaken, though one or two may be just that) is that there are items that were originally one type, A, but got converted to the other type, B, when the devs realized they needed additional B's and already had more than enough A's. Or even just that the item seemed "more clever" as a B than an A.
It's purely a theory based on nothing but guesswork and past experience, but I bet if we were to dig around in the history of these items, it would eventually come out (well, might eventually come out, assuming we could find any information at all) that the item(s) showed up as type A only a very loooong time ago, or only very briefly right in the beginning of its existence. And then at some point, it started showing up as type B, and has never been seen as type A since. (They've on at least one occasion swapped out the boss-monster for a mini-quest in similar fashion.) -- FeRDNYC (talk) 20:01, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
Theories are fine, but i haven't any conclusive evidence for now. In both articles history and forums. After JanuWiki wrapping, and once I have a full list of those posible homonyms (when I'm done with artifact and equipment templating so), I think I'll do a post on forums to ask for community help. That's the best way to gather information i think (maybe by opening a new topic instead of flooding the godwiki one). --WardPhoenix (talk) 22:25, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
List is now complete, I hope. --WardPhoenix (talk) 15:24, 15 February 2019 (UTC)-



Doublons (or worse) on Lists

It seems to have some doublons (or worse) in Omnibus List and categories list for some things (like double eye-patch who had three different spelling)... I don't think there is three diferents headgear with the same name but different spelling so I guess it is another "We need to find the truth" topic.

There is less than I was afraid of but still (search them in their respective list or the omnibus list) :

  • Double eyepatch (Headgear and/or artifact)
  • Godville citizen badge (talisman)
  • Icarus Rocket (Arms)
  • Icarus Wings (Arms)
  • Insani tea / Isani tea (Artifact / does the 2nd one exist or is it a speeling mistake of the 1st?)
  • Chain-letter mail (Artifact)

I love how in GodWiki, when you start fixing things on articles you find other things to fix in the process xD
