    Removed; thanks!

    I'm in the same boat. If I had time I could jump on QA to see which is which, but otherwise I've just been updating them as I find them in the Vault.

    The issue is that the Add-On Store, and usually the Crown Shop, uses one style and the in-game item uses a different style. Again, since I have never had the item available to me, I've only been updating them as they come up in the Vault. The store name should be a redirect to the item name, so if you see the other version it hasn't been updated yet. So its in process.

    The change I made was to support scene tiers higher than 10. You should be able to enter any tier number and it will work. The scene parameter is for when one scene is only accessible within another, such as The Clink only being accessible from within Owl's Head. I'll look at the other items that are available in that template; I tend to update the template itself as needed, but sometimes forget to make the changes to the doc.

    POTs have their own infobox, which is mostly filled out based on the POT Entry form.

    Yeah, I believe when they were first implemented, they were put on liches as the flame chicken wasn't set up yet. Needs updated. I'll add it to the list.

    I can do some checking on QA, but could you clarify/confirm? The official page name should be the in-game name, even if the in-game names are inconsistent? If Crown Shop names are inconsistent, is that something @Elgarion could help resolve? (In his copious free time, of course.) Since the Add-On store hasn't included items in over a year, should the wiki even be treating Add-On items as anything more than a historical curiousity?

    Item names can be adjusted on the store, but not all will be exact. Some items have really long names, so I've seem some that were slightly shortened for the store description name. Also, packs of items would not match a particular item name. If you see any that lead to confusion about what's being purchased, yes, I'll be happy to update those. Keep in mind, you can also see the exact asset name by hovering over the icon in the detail view for the item in question.

    Yes, the page name should be the same as the item name in-game.

    However, lots of these were created based on the store name, because I did not have access to the item to verify. Now that we can see them in the Crown Shop, these are being corrected as I find them by moving the page to the correct name (and leaving a redirect).

    As far as the store names, it doesn't really matter if they are consistent, as long as we can tell which is which. I create a redirect for them if they don't match, and enter the "storename=<text>" as part of the template so it shows correctly. That helps so users can search for either one and it will show up correctly.

    Cool, thank you! As long as I know what the official policy to follow is, I can deal with correcting them slowly over time. I do a lot of wiki window shopping (way too much), so it's easy enough to add that into my process. :)

    Is now back as an active NPC in Ardoris. They are also part of a daily quest. I wasn't sure how you wanted to list this re-activated NPC. You could probably put all the old information about this character in the Triva section(?). His new description could probably read as "He is a dealer of fine art, and specializes in being able to identify the world's greatest paintings. He is particularly skilled in discerning between original works of art, authorized copies, and skilled forgeries." (this is words he uses when you click Job). He has the title of: Reputable Art Dealer.

    He is located in a building directly west of the Public Vendor, Deng Zhou.

    I didn't know that was the actual term the game uses for them (they are the NPC's that will accept Survey Tickets). You get a quest called Talk to Magic Shop Manager, the first time you get a Survey Ticket.

    did a major update on the fishing navbox. a few things had changed name, the water types were often wrong, and added all the possible sizes: common fish have no stated size; uncommon have unstated and large; rare have small, unstated, and large. also added a subsection for the few commons that can be found in all water types.

    i removed wahoo mackerel from the navbox, though i'm not sure about that choice. this was one of two fish that i know of that were quickly removed from the game, the other being "tuna". there may still be wahoos people kept, though. if it does need to be there, it should be in salt, which is not where it was.

    edit: also, is that navbox actually being used on any pages?
